Is our Body like our Computer

Is our Body like our Computer-

Yes it seems funny to compare our body to our computer, but read on and you will see how they are so alike. But we upgrade our computers regularly- BUT what do we do for our bodies????

 

A computer functions faster and more efficiently the more memory, or space, it has available, so do we.

As we go through life, we have experiences and accumulate

 

Diabetes

About Diabetes and its history.

·         An early blood testing method called Clinitest introduced by Ames Diagnostics in 1941 entailed mixing urine and water in a test tube and adding a little blue pill that caused a chemical reaction that could cause severe physical burn injury due to extreme heat. The color of the liquid would indicate whether there was glucose in the urine.

·         In 1969, the first portable blood glucose meter was created by Ames Diagnostics. It was called the Ames Reflectance Meter (ARM). Ames later became a part of Bayer. The device looked a lot like the tricorder devices used in the original Star Trek series. They cost about $650 and were only for doctors to use in their practices or hospitals. Portable blood glucose meters for home use by patients were not sold in the U.S. until the 1980's.

·         Dr. Richard Bernstein, author of the popular book Dr. Bernstein's Diabetes Solution, was the first person to use a portable meter to check his blood sugar levels at home. He was an engineer at the time and in bad health due to Type 1 diabetes. He obtained an ARM meter meant only for physicians. Since he wasn't a physician at the time, he talked his wife (who was a psychiatrist) into obtaining the device for him. His diabetes condition drastically improved. He then campaigned for portable home blood glucose meters for patient use at home. He was unable to get medical journals to publish his studies, so at 43 years old he went to medical school and became an endocrinologist.

·         India has the highest population of people with type 2 diabetes, more than any other country in the world.

·         The country with the highest percentage of people with type 2 diabetes is a tiny island in the South Pacific called Nauru. It is the world's third smallest country after the Vatican City and Monaco.

·         The earliest known written record that likely referred to diabetes was in 1500 B.C in the Egyptian Ebers papyrus. It referred to the symptoms of frequent urination.

·         Diabetes symptoms such as thirst, weight loss, and excess urination were recognized for more than 1200 years before the disease got a name.

·         The Greek physician Aretaeus was credited with coming up with the name "diabetes" in the first century A.D. and thought a snake bite caused diabetes.

·         Dr. Thomas Willis (1621-1675) called diabetes the "pissing evil" and described the urine of people with type 2 diabetes as "wonderfully sweet, as if it was imbued with honey or sugar." He was also the first to describe pain and stinging from nerve damage due to diabetes.

·         Diabetes is a Greek word that means "to pass through." It was observed that urine quickly passed through patients with diabetes. The word mellitus is from Latin and means "sweet like honey."

·         In ancient times, doctors would test for diabetes by tasting urine to see if it was sweet. People who tasted urine to check for diabetes were called "water tasters." Other diagnostic measures included checking to see if urine attracted ants or flies.

·         In the late 1850's a French physician named Priorry advised his patients with diabetes to eat large quantities of sugar. Obviously, that method of treatment did not last.

·         Dr. Elliott P. Joslin, founder of the Joslin Diabetes Center, was the first doctor to specialize in diabetes and to encourage self-management. He became interested after his aunt was diagnosed and was told there was no cure and little hope. She died of diabetes complications not long after. His mother was diagnosed the year he started his practice in 1898 (a few years after the death of his aunt). He helped her manage her diabetes and she lived 10 more years which was quite a feat for the times.

·         Dr. Elliot P. Joslin said diabetes is "the best of the chronic diseases" on account of it being "clean, seldom unsightly, not contagious, often painless and susceptible to treatment."

·         Dr. Priscilla White pioneered treatment for diabetes in pregnancy. She joined the practice of Dr. Elliott P. Joslin in 1924 when the fetal success rate was 54%. By the time of her retirement in 1974, the fetal success rate was 90%.

·         Before 1921, the treatment of choice for type 2 diabetes was starvation or semi-starvation.

·         In 1916, Dr. Frederick M. Allen developed a hospital treatment program that restricted the diet of diabetes patients to whiskey mixed with black coffee (clear soup for non-drinkers). Patients were given this mixture every two hours until sugar disappeared from the urine (usually within 5 days). They were then given a very strict low-carbohydrate diet. This program had the best treatment outcome for its time. Allen's work drew the attention of Dr. Elliot P. Joslin who used it as a basis for calorie-restricted diet study and treatment.

·         In 1922, the pancreas was discovered to have a role in diabetes. Researchers studying digestion removed the pancreas from domestic dogs in a lab. An assistant noticed a large number of ants attracted to the dog's urine. The urine was tested and was found to have an extremely high level of sugar.

·         Type 1 and type 2 diabetes were officially differentiated in 1936. However, the difference had been noted in the 1700's when a physician noted some people suffered from a more chronic condition than others who died in less than five weeks after onset of symptoms.

·         In 1942, the first oral type 2 diabetes medication was identified, a sulfonylurea.

2017 and what it brings through numerology

WHAT TURBULENT YEARS WE HAVE BEEN HAVING- Let's look at what numerology says 2017 will bring with it.

2017 - adds up to be 10 , then we bring that down even further by adding and we are in a 1 year.

1 in numerology is about CREATIVITY & CONFIDENCE - Also about NEW BEGINNINGS.

On a personal note- This is a year to begin any project you have been contemplating- Begin it now! because  the flow is with you, and anything begun in a year 1 is favored and in sync with your natural rhythm. It's also a time for independence, courage, taking charge and applying yourself. Now is the time to start anew- everything you do now will affect your future- you are planting the seeds now for the next 9 years.

This year is about you- it's time to focus on you, take self improvement classes, change your image, or focus on your personal goals. Now more than ever is the time to become acquainted with the needs of yourself.

On a universal level- it's time to bring positive creative energy into the world - but first we have to overcome our insecurities and need for addiction. Working in a 1 year brings in the energy to take risks,- "travel the road less traveled".

This creative energy is like a volcano and will find a way out this year- the universe must gain the confidence to channel it into positive endeavors (originality and innovation in life's arena), otherwise it will explode and come out in destructive ways.

 Are we as a country that frustrated that we are happy to just go through the motions-and "paint by numbers" or do we turn to addiction as a way to quell our frustration.  This is the year to gain the confidence as a country to stand up and be counted.

It will be important for everyone to engage in some sort of activity/ exercise this year- this will help move blocked energy- and to look for ways and inspiration  by creating pathways to serve the world in a positive way.

SOUND and FREQUENCY the silent unseen pollution

HOW WELL DO YOU KNOW YOUR ENVIRONMENT

Sound travels as a waveform, which , just like a wave in the ocean, goes up and down. These waves are measures in cycles per second (Hz). This measurement is called the frequency of a sound. Just because we can't hear a sound does not mean it is not there. Everything that vibrates has its own resonant frequency- that is, the frequency or vibration that is most natural and harmonious to it.

Everything in the universe vibrates and everything also has its own resonant frequency. This includes the chair you may be sitting on, the pages in the book you may be reading, and of course your body. Every organ, bone, tissue, and every part of your body is in a state of vibration and has its own resonance. Frequencies of sound also determine the density of matter.  Your teeth and bones, the most solid
