5 Knots You Need to Know How to Tie at All Times We’re doing something different today with our Knot of the Week series and taking a look at five knots that you should know how to tie at all times. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been out with friends and had to tie something or someone down and everyone just looks at me. No matter how often I remind them they need to read our KOTW articles and watch the videos here on ITS, I thought I’d put together an article on what I consider to be the knots I use the most on a regular basis and why you should have them at your disposal. Below you’ll find links to our original articles on ITS with tying instructions, as well as embedded videos that take you step-by-step through each of them. Let’s face it, it’s hard to remember all the knots we teach here on ITS and knot tying is a depreciable skill that needs to be practiced.

Make Your Own Electrolyte Energy Drink Gatorade, PowerAde, electrolyte pumped-up sports drinks…they’re good for you, right? You see athletes chugging down bottles of the neon-colored liquid in every ad and real life, surely they do something, and they do. They help you maintain your body’s balance of electrolytes during or after periods of heavier exercise. But when you look closer, you’re really just paying an outrageous price for glorified, brightly colored, sugar water. An overload of processed and refined sweetener (in the case of sports drinks, high-fructose corn syrup) is never a good thing. We’ve been led to believe by certain companies that we need an extra-special drink to recover from some sweat. Ingredients: Lemons, limes, oranges, salt, honey, water, coconut water, sugar, strawberries. Why the ingredients: There isn’t much need to delve into why each ingredient is included. Lay-Low Recipe You will need… Directions Bright ‘n Early Recipe Same as above. Sweet and Smooth-ie recipe By Claire Goodall
Dark Chocolate Is Good For You - And Now We Finally Know Why! Dark chocolate is one of the most delicious substances known to man, and it has the added benefit of being fairly good for you in moderation. A study led by Diederik Esser from Wageningen University in the Netherlands has shown that ingesting dark chocolate can actually improve vascular health. The results were published in The FASEB Journal. Before we go any further, it needs to be made quite clear that studies referring to the benefit of dark chocolate are not talking about your average Hershey’s bar. Typical candy bars have a low cocoa percentage and much larger amounts of sugar and fat, which negate any incurred health benefit, if not actually making it worse. The forty-four study participants were all middle-aged men who were overweight. After the study’s completion, participants were found to have an increased flexibility in their arteries, which is likely staving off atherosclerosis and improving blood flow.
7 Reasons to Try This Position in Bed The video: how to get to Sleep from an Ayurvedic perspective. Have you ever wondered to what extent the two sides of your body mirror each other? It is very common for me to have a patient tell me that they have all their issues on just one side of the body. A pain in the left foot, a bad left hip, a bad left shoulder, left-sided abdominal pain, a pain in the neck on the right side; why? Why do rashes choose the left or right side of the body? Why does the acuity of the eyes differ so greatly from one to the other? Why do we get pains often on just one side of the body? According to Ayurveda, the left side of the body is completely different than the right side, and, while I know it sounds strange, emphasizing the left side for rest and sleep offers some time tested wisdom for very real health and longevity benefits. Join me as we investigate this old Ayurvedic concept and see if it still holds water today. The Lymph Drains toward the Left The Priority System of the Body Better Elimination
Resonance in Giant Piezoelectric Levitation Basins Piezoelectric Basins for Acoustic Levitation Identified at Megalithic Sites Focusing the Heartbeat of the Sun by Alex Putney for Human-Resonance.org August 27, 2011 The many astoundingly beautiful monuments of the Giza plateau, along the Nile River in Egypt, display a remarkably precise set of engineering specifications and psychoacoustic effects that indicate an ancient biorhythmic synchronization network once operated on a global scale. Preceding the Dynasties of the Pharaohs by several thousand years, this global pyramid culture was a technologically advanced Sanskrit world nation that employed these giant crystalline structures to synchronize the pineal, hypothalamus and pituitary glands with the human heartbeat at temples and sacred sites worldwide. The striped, hooded headdress of the Great Sphinx references the hooded Kundalini cobra, an animal which is also seen extending from the third-eye, or ajna chakra of the female figure.

Oil Pulling With Coconut Oil to Transform Your Dental Health I love it when I learn new things from the comments people leave on my site. About two weeks ago, I wrote an article about coconut oil – an awesome tropical oil with many health benefits. A few people commented that they use coconut oil for something called Oil Pulling – which is kind of like using an oil as mouthwash. Apparently, there are quite a few studies that support this process and a lot of people swear by it. It is claimed to whiten your teeth, make your breath fresher and lead to massive improvements in oral health. I have now been doing this every morning for about 10 days… and I am impressed. What is Oil Pulling and How Does it Work? Oil pulling involves swishing oil around the mouth and has been used for thousands of years as an Indian folk remedy. In order to oil pull, you put a tablespoon of oil in your mouth, then swish it around for 15-20 minutes. The main benefit of doing this, is that it reduces the amount of harmful bacteria in the mouth. The way oil pulling works is simple.
