Pain is such a simple word… it’s tough to imagine that it such as small word can describe the intense stabbing, aching, throbbing, burning, numbing sensation that makes it almost impossible for you to live the way you used to. North American Spine provides treatment options for people who have neck or back pain – often extending into fingers and legs – and who have not found relief from other treatments. If you have tried lifestyle changes, hot/cold compresses, medication, supervised exercise and physical therapy but still have chronic pain, don’t despair. North American Spine’s treatments have provided significant pain relief to patients who have not found relief from other treatments… including previous spine surgery. North American Spine’s minimally invasive, outpatient spine procedures provide additional benefits beyond pain relief. They also minimize scar tissue, and can provide faster recovery than other minimally invasive spine procedures.
Let's keep things simple this week. When it comes to personal-care products, we are big believers in streamlining what you use—see " Eight Products You Think You Need But Don't " for a refresher—buying less in general, and getting creative. We have both always loved experimenting in our kitchens and our bathrooms, checking ingredients in products we love, isolating the main ones, and then trying them on their own. Sometimes it works: A favorite hair leave-in contained aloe, for example, so one day we tried aloe alone and found that, lo and behold, it worked just fine on its own.
Making Herbal Face Creams and Body Butters By Sherry A Barker of Sherry’s Creations, Basically making Creams for Face and Body follows the same principals as described in the previous article about Making Lotions. A Cream is an “ emulsion” of a water base and an oil base by use of an “emulsifier agent” to bind the two bases so they will not separate. The basic difference between a cream and a lotion is the amount/use of various oils and water base percentages to formulate a cream.
Fortunately for me, my love of herbal medicine coincided with a need for more nourishing, non-irritating products for my sensitive skin. I was more than delighted when one of my first teachers taught me the relatively simple process of making facial or body creams at home with simple kitchen tools. It seemed such an esoteric art, but happily, it’s not.
Mahatma Gandhi (First of 5 pages) Vinay Lal M ohandas Karamchand Gandhi was born in the town of Porbander in the state of what is now Gujarat on 2 October 1869. He had his schooling in nearby Rajkot, where his father served as the adviser or prime minister to the local ruler. Though India was then under British rule, over 500 kingdoms, principalities, and states were allowed autonomy in domestic and internal affairs: these were the so-called 'native states'.
A thin Indian man with not much hair sits alone on a bare floor, wearing nothing but a loincloth and a pair of cheap spectacles, studying the clutch of handwritten notes in his hand. The black-and-white photograph takes up a full page in the newspaper. In the top left-hand corner of the page, in full color, is a small rainbow-striped apple.
1. Ch'ien / The Creative above CH'IEN THE CREATIVE, HEAVEN below CH'IEN THE CREATIVE, HEAVEN The first hexagram is made up of six unbroken lines. These unbroken lines stand for the primal power, which is light-giving, active, strong, and of the spirit.

Its energy is represented as unrestricted by any fixed conditions in space and is therefore conceived of as motion.

Art by Laetitzia As we all know, communication is essential in society. Advancements in technology have transformed the way that we correspond with others in the modern world. We live in an era when launching apps, using an online QR code generator for immediate information, following turn-by-turn map navigation on our phones, and microblogging with tweets and instant photos have become the norm. Because of the constant buzz in our technological world, it's easy to forget how important communicating face-to-face is. When conversing old-school style, it's not only speech we verbalize that matters, but what our nonverbal gestures articulate as well. Body language is truly a language of its own.
Throughout history it has been an advantage if an individual can read body language. Body language helps in everyday life from closing a business deal or trusting someone with your life, to recognising when someone is upset. Body language is the art of making an educated guess at a person’s feelings or intentions based on their posture, movement and positioning. To understand a person’s body language you need to take into account more than one aspect of their body language. Take tears for example.
