Just like when you want to see a medical doctor, you want to make sure that you are consulting a true qualified graduate medical doctor, don’t you? You want to see his medical license and maybe you check him/her out on the Internet or even call the medical board of your state/country to corroborate that s/he is in fact a physician.
And that is how you should behave when you navigate in the internet, exactly the same way. You should always make sure that the person giving advice has the proper qualifications and professional training in the field you want advise or guideline.
There are thousands of people in social media and all over the Internet that want to make a quick buck, and they use their expertise in advertising to start a digital business promoting health products, physical therapy treatments, “health magazines” that have damaged a lot of people who are desperate for a “cure” and they haven’t found it in traditional medicine for different reasons:
Graduate medical doctors who are not well trained.
Lack of interest by the healthcare provider in the benefit of the patient.
Medical doctors who just care about billing the medical insurance for pure profit.
Physicians who never had an excellent qualified expertise attending patients as a whole.
Physicians who do not keep on studying the newest medical advances and do not keep up to date on medica scientific advances.
Even the most credible information found online is useless in the absence of expert physician evaluation and diagnosis. Tell your doctor you fully trust what you have read online. Email them the article that’s captured your interest, or print it out and bring it to your next appointment. A good doctor will walk you through it.
Interesting Data Link for you to visit if you like plants as much as I do:
“The International Aroid Societyhas a long history of affiliation with local Aroid groups. Though there are not many chapters currently active, a West Coast Chapter based in California has begun what is hopefully a new trend.”
Pini Jambu – A watery fruit in Sri Lanka
Dead snapdragon flowers look like weird skulls
I don’t think I would like to have this particular plant in my farm, especially because in summer I go out to the yard to inspect my and detect larvas, caterpillars with an ultraviolet lamp, and seeing this scary flower would probably be a deterrent for me to keep on doing what I have being doing for years 🤣😁
the largest and most famous waterfalls in the world
Niagara Falls, New York and Ontario
Waterfalls commonly form where water rushes down steep hillsides in upland areas. They are typical of the upper valley but can be found in the rivers lower courses where the process of rejuvenation creates enough potential energy for vertical erosion to recommence closer to the mouth of the river. The height and number of waterfalls along a stream or river depend upon the type of rocks that are being eroded by the water. This typically occurs in areas where alternating bands of bedrock, made up of varying levels of resistance, form the bedrock. Some types of rocks (shale, for example) wear away more easily than others (such as sandstone or limestone). Source
Then start living now, breathing now, be absolutely conscious of your living state at every moment of your life, every second.
LIVE HERE AND NOW….BREATHE!
You waste your life away when you constantly replay the past in your mind, when you imagine a future and live every day trying to “live in the future” that will never be present.
We can plan for the future and act according to it. Putting in action our plans with passion to accomplish our goals, but always living in the present!
Some people say the following words are cliché. In my opinion they have truth in the message and they are worth of mentioning them:
Yesterday is history
Tomorrow is a mystery
But today is a gift
That is why it is called the present
IMPORTANT NOTE from Dr. Castro:
Please don’t assume that I am a Democrat or Republican just because I write or mention my admiration about certain people. I am neither. I hold no rigid political affiliation.
I admire the human being, no matter his/her political affiliation, religion or lack thereof.
I am a true freedom thinker who do not like labels. I don’t follow hypocrites. I admire what I think it’s admirable to me, and criticise what I sincerely think has to be denounced as a bad policy, error or a crime.
Depression: Sadness, feeling down, having a loss of interest or pleasure in daily activities – these are symptoms familiar to all of us. But, if they persist and affect our life substantially, it may be depression.
The World Health Organization estimates that 121 million people worldwide suffer from depression. I am one of those 121 million people. Maybe you are too. Maybe you know someone close to you who is affected by depression.
Although it may seem trivial to some, I have found great comfort in dark times in some of the following inspirational quotes about depression. To know others have experienced the darkness of depression and have seen the light at the end is sometimes all we need when we feel we are alone.

FIGHT ANXIETY WITH FLOWERS BEAUTY AND RELAXATION POWERS
Flowers relax the brain with their colors and beauty (vision), their essence (smell), their texture (touch).
Constant stimuli to the brain can create havoc on our central nervous system, and thus to our way of living.
Learning to relax is primordial, and flowers, herbs and plants can play an important role taking the stress away from your life.
1. Jasmine improves sleep and anxiety
Jasmine is a shrub found outdoors, but with proper care and the right location you can grow it indoors. Its fragrance is not only sweet to our senses, it’s proven to promote a better night’s sleep.
If you surround yourself by jasmine, it’s likely you’ll feel less anxious and more at peace, which results in waking up more alert.
Sleep plays an important role in our physical and mental wellbeing. If you’re lacking in sleep, you may find you have trouble making decisions, controlling your emotions, solving problems and coping with change.
2. Gerbera daisy helps to remove toxins from the air
It removes benzene from the air – a chemical associated with inks. Add one to your office, laundry room or bedroom to promote a calming ambience and fight anxiety.
Mist the leaves a few times a week. When this flower blooms, its colourful petals can last up to two weeks. The pretty hue not only adds energy to our homes, but having brightly coloured plants in the house and office also helps to promote happiness.
Things happen in life that are out of our control. Some are good, some others are bad and they inflict happiness or pain in our hearts. If we haven’t built a strong mind we might react in a negative way and feel like we are losing control of our lives when they affected us with harm.
Fear, doubt and worry are feelings that could help you evolve and conquer, or destroy you in the heat of the moment. When the going gets tough, it takes a special kind of mental toughness to fight those emotions. You need a personal reminder to strengthen your mind, because no matter how great the challenge, your can be greater.
Albert Einstein explain in this quote what a powerful mind can do to your well-being, your health and even your wealth:
A Lee Boyd Malvo quote:
Mind over matter. Weak minded people are easily influenced. Powerful minded people you can’t break their will. — Lee Boyd Malvo
That is why is so important that we refresh our mind day by day with positive thoughts, beautiful images, proper information, joy and gratitude. There is a lot of truth to what it has been said about “peace of mind”.
A mind in peace can function and accumulate better thoughts than a mind in constant battle and disarray. Consequently that mind will make better decisions, decisions that will influence positively once life.
Remember now: Build a strong mind to have a powerful life!
There are thousands of different beautiful species of birds on earth that it would take all of our lives forever to list them all, to photograph them all, to describe them all.
In this article, I want to show you a few of the many who I find just staggering.
Whether it’s for camouflage or attracting a mate, the birds listed below have all the colors of the rainbow in their beautiful feathers!
Southern Ground Hornbill
Guess what’s for dinner?! …
your favorite! Dragonfly!
All birds have wings, although not all birds fly. Nor are wings confined to Aves; bats are flying mammals and most insects have wings.
Red bellied Fruit-dove
Birds’ bodies are beautifully designed for flight, with strong chest muscles and just enough curve to their wings to provide lift. Differences in wing shape provide different advantages to the various bird species. The narrow, sharp-tipped wings of the falcon provide speed; albatrosses soar high on wings much longer than they are wide.
Staggering Wing Pattern
Most songbirds have elliptical, evenly shaped wings that facilitate quick, small movements in the tight spaces of their tree homes. Swimming birds, such as penguins and puffins, have flipper-shaped wings that propel them rapidly and gracefully through water.
