  1. I'm not sure it looks quite like almond. What do the leaves look like? Could be cherry.
  2. Well I am one of those people greatly affected by the moon always have been. I lie awake around a full moon and can feel the pull. I feel the magnetism behind my forehead. In fact often times when a full moon is rising I feel like I am in a kind of head lock. It is a subject I have looked into in some depth and it is very interesting what goes on in the human cell for eg at this time as regards sodium and magnesium exchange etc and why some of us are affected and suffer so much more than others. And no it isn't as simple as taking valerian.
  3. Swiss scientists conducted a study that suggests sleep is significantly affected by lunar phases. Their results show changes to sleep throughout the moon’s 29.5-day cycle, and significant increases to sleep disruption during the time immediately surrounding the full moon. When researchers analyzed their data in relation to the phases of the moon, they found sleep changed significantly throughout the lunar cycle, with disruptions to sleep peaking during the days closest to the full moon: Sleep latency increased as the full moon approached. On the nights of a full moon, it took people an average of 5 minutes longer to fall asleep. After the full moon passed, sleep latency began to decrease. People spent 30% less time in slow-wave sleep—the deepest phase of sleep—at the full moon. As the full moon arrived, EEG scans showed brain activity during slow-wave sleep diminished. Melatonin levels dropped during the days surrounding the full moon, with nighttime melatonin levels at their lowest on full-moon nights Overall sleep time also dropped to their lowest levels—an average of 20 minutes less sleep—on nights with a full moon. Volunteers reported their lowest sleep quality during the full moon phase of the lunar cycle.
  4. So if any of you are not sleeping so well just at the moment like me here's why "The year’s closest full moon on February 19, 2019, swings a whopping 49,402 km (30,697 miles) closer to Earth than does the year’s farthest full moon (or micro-moon) on September 14, 2019. Hence, the diameter of the February full moon is about 14 percent greater than that of the September full moon. But the disk size and brightness of this February supermoon exceed those of the September micro-moon by about 30 percent". https://earthsky.org/tonight/years-biggest-supermoon-on-february-19
  5. Never go to bed hungry either. For me if I hadn't had enough carbs in the evening I would have a rubbish sleep. When I come in from a meeting I always have some toast. Also people low in magnesium and B vits tend not to sleep well.
  6. Me too and longer if possible Actually in winter I could easily sleep 11 hours but I'm always tired. In summer I only need 8 and I feel normal and energetic.
  7. Just a few thoughts ... Try limiting caffeine to the morning only. Drink plenty of water through the day and camomile tea in the evening. Don't use the computer late in the evening either. They always say it's best to go to bed at about the same time every night for the sake of your body clock.
  8. I do that to my legs What would pure aloe vera gel be like? or at least rub on afterwards.

    Job 26:7 Astronomers have been observing a vast cavern in the northern sky so large it is virtually incomprehensible. We begin with the following quote: “These photographs reveal the opening and interior of the cavern so stupendous that our entire solar system would be lost therein. I have watched it since the days of youth in many telescopes of many powers, but never dreamed that the central region is the mouth of a colossal cave. Pen of writer and brush of artist alike are lifeless and inert in any attempt to describe this interior; for the depth of the Orion nebula appear like torn and twisted objects and river masses of shining glass, irregular pillars and columns of stalactites in glittering splendor and stalagmites from the mighty floor. The appearance is like that of light shining and glowing behind the clear walls of ivory and pearl, studded with millions of diamonds like shining stars. There must be some reason why all this grandeur is lavished on this one spot in the heavens. The colors are a hue peculiar to the Orion and studded around the opening so that they appear as a pavement of starry sand.” Prof. Learkin of Mt. Lowe Observatory

    Increasing hemoglobin

    People say we are what we eat but in reality we are what we can absorb and because of your severe gut inflammation then you won't have been absorbing things very well for some time. That is why the millet and pears as mentioned on your gastric page is so important first as that will help sooth and heal and then you will be able to introduce other foods carefully. Papayas and mango are soothing to your gut and will also help you to absorb the iron rich foods. Don't mix anything with milk because of your gut problem as the milk will turn to acid Avoid beef and pork.

    ie pp. 5-7 - When We Die (ie) (1998) Immortality of the Soul—The Birth of the Doctrine 8 Various ancient civilizations, then, held one teaching in common—the immortality of the soul. Did they get this teaching from the same source? The Point of Origin 9. Which religion influenced the ancient world of Egypt, Persia, and Greece? “In the ancient world,” says the book The Religion of Babylonia and Assyria, “Egypt, Persia, and Greece felt the influence of the Babylonian religion.” This book goes on to explain: “In view of the early contact between Egypt and Babylonia, as revealed by the El-Amarna tablets, there were certainly abundant opportunities for the infusion of Babylonian views and customs into Egyptian cults. In Persia, the Mithra cult reveals the unmistakable influence of Babylonian conceptions . . . The strong admixture of Semitic elements both in early Greek mythology and in Grecian cults is now so generally admitted by scholars as to require no further comment. These Semitic elements are to a large extent more specifically Babylonian.”* 10, 11. What was the Babylonian view of life after death? 10 But does not the Babylonian view of what happens after death differ considerably from that of the Egyptians, the Persians, and the Greeks? Consider, for example, the BabylonianEpic of Gilgamesh. Its aging hero, Gilgamesh, haunted by the reality of death, sets out in search of immortality but fails to find it. A wine maiden he meets during his journey even encourages him to make the most of this life, for he will not find the unending life he seeks. The message of the whole epic is that death is inevitable and the hope of immortality is an illusion. Would this indicate that the Babylonians did not believe in the Hereafter? 11 Professor Morris Jastrow, Jr., of the University of Pennsylvania, U.S.A., wrote: “Neither the people nor the leaders of religious thought [of Babylonia] ever faced the possibility of the total annihilation of what once was called into existence. Death [in their view] was a passage to another kind of life, and the denial of immortality merely emphasized the impossibility of escaping the change in existence brought about by death.” Yes, the Babylonians also believed that life of some kind, in some form, continued after death. They expressed this by burying objects with the dead for their use in the Hereafter. 12-14. (a) After the Flood, what was the birthplace of the teaching of the immortality of the soul? (b) How did the doctrine spread across the earth? 12 Clearly, the teaching of the immortality of the soul goes back to ancient Babylon. According to the Bible, a book bearing the stamp of accurate history, the city of Babel, or Babylon, was founded by Nimrod, a great-grandson of Noah.* After the global Flood in Noah’s day, there was only one language and one religion. By founding the city and constructing a tower there, Nimrod started another religion. The Bible record shows that after the confusion of languages at Babel, the unsuccessful tower builders scattered and made new beginnings, taking along their religion. (Genesis 10:6-10; 11:4-9) Babylonishreligious teachings thus spread across the face of the earth. 13 Tradition has it that Nimrod died a violent death. After his death the Babylonians reasonably would have been inclined to hold him in high regard as the founder, builder, and first king of their city. Since the god Marduk (Merodach) was regarded as the founder of Babylon, some scholars have suggested that Marduk represents the deified Nimrod. If this is so, then the idea that a person has a soul that survives death must have been current at least by the time of Nimrod’s death. In any case, the pages of history reveal that following the Flood, the birthplace of the teaching of the immortality of the soul was Babel, or Babylon. 14 How, though, did the doctrine become central to most religions of our time? The next section will examine its entry into Eastern religions.
