Perception I had a very inspiring conversation with a close friend of mine about perception. I want to share some of our insights with you. We were sitting at the kitchen table, and we were reminiscing about past traumatic events. We both had difficult upbringings and lost precious people, but despite all of these drawbacks, we raised above all odds and expectations. If we are so successful, why can’t other people be like us? We had a long debate over the answer to that question. After a while, we suddenly realized that it all came down to one simple thing –

Remember the famous phrase “Kills 99.9% of Germs”? I’m not sure about this. But what I do know is that it can wreak havoc on your entire health. This type of statement is a simple marketing strategy used to trick you into buying popular disinfectants sold in the United States.

But the truth of the matter is that your genes play a huge role when it comes to the natural color of your teeth. The only realistic thing that you can do is to make your teeth look five shades whiter. What you eat, drink and even your medication can affect the color of your teeth.

Blood Pressure I’ve recently heard a lot of myths about health, about the human body and how it works, and about what it needs in order to function at its best. The body and the mind form a unique mechanism that has specific needs. You can sometimes “cheat” in the physical world. You’ve surely heard of people who meditate and fast, and although they’re depriving their bodies of nutrients, they are still strong and healthy.

Cramps and Tingling in Extremities Since many of you have asked me, I took the opportunity to clarify some aspects about two of the scariest symptoms – tingling in hands and feet, and cramps in legs.

There are a lot of theories regarding the beer belly and whether it’s a myth or not, but I will let you decide it this time. I’m sure that not only once you’ve seen, especially in men, that kind of visceral fat that you can’t quite catch between your fingers. Although they might be skinny overall, they look just like pregnant women (but you wouldn’t call any of them fat).

Facts about Beer Belly Fat usually deposits under your skin, coating your
