How To Improve Your Gut and Boost Immunity

How To Improve Your Gut Bacteria

The world has gone haywire with the Corona Pandemic. This is blocking down countries and places all over the Planet. It is true that so many people are falling prey to the Coronavirus infection. But we must also not forget that there are people who are not affected by it, as well.

Regardless of how adverse the Coronavirus can be, it is important to keep in mind that there are precautionary measures we can take to protect ourselves.

One of the effective ways is simply to boost your immunity. And to do so, keeping our gut bacteria healthy can be very effective.

Keep Our Gut Bacteria Healthy Is Key to Boost Your Immunity

According to scientific studies, our gut governs 70% of the immune responses, so keeping bacteria in our guts happy is the key to our health.

This is fulfilled by about 1,000 trillion, or 2 kilograms worth of intestinal bacteria, most of which cannot be cultivated. These bacteria plays crucial roles such as:

Therefore, increasing the number and volumes of bacterias in your gut increases our immunity, which in turn can make you healthy. Here are ways to improve your gut bacteria.

Eat Healthy Food For Your Gut Bacteria

Eat Food That Makes Your Gut Bacteria Happy and Healthy

Foods your gut bacteria crave for are foods that suppress or remove active oxygen that harms the bacteria.

In particular,

  • Brightly colored vegetables
  • Fruits
  • Algae
  • Onions
  • Garlic
  • Fermented Foods

are some of your gut bacteria’s favorites. These foods basically reduce active oxygen within the gut. As a result, the gut bacteria become stress-free, comfortable and relaxed.

In particular, fermented foods contain

  • Lactic Acid Bacterium (contained in Yogurt, Miso, Sauerkraut, Kimchi, Tempei, etc.)
  • Bifidobacterium (contained in yoghurts)

that regulate the function of the intestine.

Moreover, Oligosaccharide (contained in honey, onions, burdock, etc.) is a great treat for the intestinal bacteria. This will increase the number of bacteria in your gut.

Eat Food That Makes Your Gut Bacteria Happy and Healthy

Eat With Someone You Enjoy Being With

It is also important to watch out who you eat with.

Dr. Koichiro Fujita, a Japanese immunologist, exposed rats to electric shocks every time they were being fed. As a result, the rats developed severe atopic dermatitis within 2 weeks. Exposure to stressors during meals can be detrimental to your immune system.

He also found that people tend to gain weight when they eat with people whom they do not fancy being with.

Therefore, eat meals with people you enjoy being with!

Avoid Food Additives And Preservatives

Food additives are used mainly for extending the life of processed foods. Likewise, preservatives are used to sterilize bacteria that come to contact with food products.

By its very nature, it will kill not only the unfriendly bacteria but also the friendly ones. Obviously, this will harm the gut flora and bacteria.

So avoiding food additives and preservatives would be beneficial for your gut bacteria.

How To Beat Coronavirus Anxiety

How are you coping with the current Coronavirus spread and anxiety that has taken over the Planet? Are you spending restless nights? Perhaps you are worried about being infected by the virus. Or you may be concerned about the overall uncertainty and the unpredictability?

If you are, here are some tips on how you can alleviate your anxiety and reclaim some peace of mind.

1. Avoid TV and the News

According to scientific studies, watching TV for a long time can affect our health. It is said to increase the risk of obesity and diabetes among others. Excessive TV watching can also cause mental illnesses, even during time of peace.

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/mar/04/binge-watching-mental-health-effects-research

If so, it isn’t difficult to assume what binge-watching can do to us during a time like this. Flooding news reports, many worrisome ones, can cause fear and anxiety among people.

As a result, people tend to herd behavior can such as buying up supplies and food stock, which is actually happening everywhere.

Go for a walk

2. Go For A Walk

It is of course important to comply with the hygiene and health measures set forth by the government. But that said, going outside for a walk and getting fresh air can reduce anxiety and stress just like during the ordinary times. Being the simple form of exercise, walking would improve your mood, get your juice going, boost immunity and achieve overall well-being.

According to a study by Harvard Medical School,

A study of over 1,000 men and women found that those who walked at least 20 minutes a day, at least 5 days a week, had 43% fewer sick days than those who exercised once a week or less. And if they did get sick, it was for a shorter duration, and their symptoms were milder.

On the other hand, remaining indoors all day long can cause anxiety, insomnia and other mental disorders. Spending time outdoors, even if for a short time, your body wakes up, uplifting your feelings.

3. Sing!

Singing is also a great way to reduce anxiety and improve your mood!

Singing boosts immunoglobulin A levels, reinforcing your immune system which is a great way to prevent yourself from the virus. It also improves breathing, reduces stress hormones, and simply uplifts your spirit! Singing basically has a positive influence on both emotional state and immune responses.

5. Meditate!

Meditation can alter the state of your brain, changing it from Beta to Alpha, even Delta brainwaves, which are slower in frequency. The slower the frequency, the more rested state you are in.

There are many kinds of meditations out there, and you may be wondering what would work for you if you are new to meditation. You may want to search for various meditations available on the net and find the ones that work for you.

Don’t worry if you get distracted along the way; all you have to do is just become aware and bring yourself back to the meditative state, following instructions of the meditation you are working on.

Conclusion

These are just simple, ordinary tips, but believe me, they work!

Try to get some exercise, bask in the sun, sing and dance like you normally do to uplift your spirit. especially during the time of challenge like this.

Why & How To Start Online Business

More and more people are starting online businesses, thanks to the IT era. This trend is irreversible and is here to stay whether you like it or not. Let’s face it: what awaits us in the future is unpredictable than ever before, with the emergence of AI, IoT and other technologies. The world is changing rapidly like no other times. Being an employee of a company or running a physical store can come to an end abruptly. On the other hand, e-commerce has become the norm worldwide and is evermore expanding. That is why you may want to give a serious thought to starting an online business that has various advantages such as the followings. Minimal Cost and Logistics.

1. Minimal Cost and Logistics

Unlike starting a business in the past, starting an online business requires minimal cost and logistics; no need to sign a lease agreement and rent an office, no need to employ personnel, no need to buy equipments, and the list goes on. That’s one great advantage right there.

2. Physical Freedom

Moreover, having an online business enables you Physical Freedom. Since you are not bound to a single, designated location that you have to commute to everyday, you can work from wherever you want as long as you have your mobile device or your laptop and internet connection. You can work from the comfort of your den, enjoy peace and quiet and privacy while you work. This can be extremely beneficial for those with chemical sensitivity or any other sensitivity for that matter.

3. Psychological Freedom

The byproduct advantage is the Psychological Freedom. You no longer have to put up with stressed out passengers on packed commuter trains; no more energy deprived of because of office politics; there is no need for you to attend social gatherings. You have autonomy. The less stress means more energy, which you can use to come up with new ideas, execute them, and create contents. You become more productive and inspired. Your physical and mental health will naturally improve. You will have more time to spend on doing what you love, work out or just chill out because you save time from not commuting.

Things that you love or passionate about can be promoted and offered to some 1.8 billion online consumers worldwide! Yes, according to Statista, 1.8 billion people shopped online in 2018, and consumers spent $3.5 trillion online in 2019!

The internet is THE PLACE where people go to for information and shopping. No other platform has this grand of a reach than the internet! Not utilizing such a massive, powerful platform is a gargantuan opportunity lost, indeed.

5. Online Business Protects You From Force Majeure

In addition to these upsides, I would like to direct your attention to another advantage: Protection from Force Majeure. The outbreak and spreading of the coronavirus of late is wreaking havoc around the globe, particularly in China and in Japan.

So many global corporations make products and parts or ingredients in China, and now, they are facing supply issues. Manufacturers are experiencing inventory shortages and backlogs. International travel has gone down tremendously. And so many meetings and conferences are canceled or postponed.

As a matter of fact, you can continue to evolve your business following your passion and ideas because the possibilities are unlimited .

Don’t Know How To Start Business Online? Here’s How.

Perhaps you have been thinking about starting an online business for quite some time, but you don’t know how to get started. This may be the biggest reason that’s stopping so many people from taking action.

Don’t worry! No body is an expert from the beginning. You just have to have the right information and instructions and follow them. I am not at all a tech-savvy and I had NO IDEA how to start an online business, let alone how to create a website. But I managed to set up the platform by following a step-by-step instructions and receiving extensive support from an educational program called SFM. I could not have done it without their help, and I continue to receive coaching and support.

My Journey on Recovering from Sensitivity to Chemicals

Hi.

Thank you for stopping by.

If you are here, I assume you may have some physical or mental condition disrupting your life at the moment? And perhaps you may be looking for a cure that’s like a needle in a haystack?

If that is the case, I can imagine how challenging to be in your shoes, because I’ve been there myself.

In this blog, let me share with you my experiences in:

  • Being challenged with a long-standing ordeal
  • Coming across a glimmer of hope
  • Cracking open a hole of possibility for recovery

I sincerely hope that what I share here on an ongoing-basis, would be helpful for you in some way.

Long-standing Ordeal

I have been suffering from sensitivity to multiple chemicals, or MCS, for more than 15 years.

In particular, I would get headaches, dizziness, nausea, breathing difficulties, skin and eye irritation, whenever I am in contact with chemical in the environment including:

  • shampoo
  • hairsprays
  • detergents
  • fabric softeners
  • air fresheners
  • deodorants
  • insecticides
  • paint
  • solvents
  • furniture
  • bed mattresses

among many others.

Just like a sommelier capable of sniffing subtleties of wine, those with MCS like me can sense different chemical odors and scents.

And so, I became homeless. Also, I lost my job. Plus, I was no longer able to do what I used to love doing like

  • going to theaters and museums
  • taking ballet classes
  • singing and acting in theater troupes
  • working out at gyms
  • flying and traveling
  • staying at various hotels
  • dining with friends

And the list just goes on…

In other words, it became almost impossible for me to be out in the public or inside in buildings with chemical materials. I no longer had a life nor a place to be.

Isolation became the norm. Being around family members became difficult.

I had gone to many doctors and clinics for help, but to no avail.

Moreover, I left no stone unturned: I tried just about everything that was out there:

  • Ayurvedic treatment
  • acupuncture
  • Various massages
  • past life regression therapy
  • family constellation sessions
  • wave activity water
  • flower essence
  • wave motion therapy
  • color therapy
  • sound therapy
  • exercises
  • yoga
  • diet and fasting
  • meditation
  • astrology reading
  • various spiritual and health related workshops
  • psychic
  • clairvoyant
  • healing
  • channeling
  • colon cleansing

But, none of it worked, really

As a result, I became completely exhausted and depressed from years of fatigue, and was about to give up. I felt like I was permanently trapped in a dungeon.

A Glimmer of Hope

However, at this darkest moment is when I saw a silver lining in a dark gloomy cloud: I found Dr. Joe Dispenza’s videos on YouTube!

In particular, this was a video titled “Healing by Thoughts Alone.”

He talks about

  • The power of a human mind: how thoughts can heal, dis-ease, or even kill you;
  • The placebo effect: by simply believing in a thought that you are receiving real substances or treatment can heal you

In addition, I watched a few other videos of his, and learned of so many people healing themselves from diseases like cancer, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and irritable bowel syndrome.

The facts and information shared in his videos convinced me that this was my WAY OUT!

So, I immediately signed up for his online intensive and progressive workshops just two weeks ago. And, I am currently watching them with utter awe and delight.

At the same time, I have been meditating and pretending that I am healthy and wealthy. Often times, I, or my ego, get in the way, preventing me from going in deep. Nevertheless, I have been practicing this daily.

And guess what?!

I think I am starting to experience some changes already, although it’s just a tiny, baby step!

Has A Hole Cracked Open?

After a week into listening to the intensive workshop videos, I took on an interpretation assignment from a client. I had been working with client for several years, and had a very good business relationship with them.

However, as the scents and fragrance of cleaning and personal care products got stronger in general, I started getting more and more sensitive.

And as those products became widely consumed, some of the client members started using such products to which I started reacting.

Thus, I was not able to work for this client for a while.

But since I was running out of money from 5 years of being homeless, hotel-hopping and global trotting, in quest for clean air and a breathable room, I had to work.

So, I showed up on the day of the assignment, bracing for impact, assuming that the conference room would be smelly and that I’d become ill.

But lo and behold!

I didn’t sense any scent at all!

Can it be that they had stopped using such fragranced products? Or can it be that I have become somewhat desensitized?

Whichever the case, I was able to sit in the room for an hour without going dysfunctional whatsoever.

What a surprise! This was a completely new phenomenon!

If someone like me who was dreading for decades over seemingly an incurable dis-ease, can make a breakthrough with meditation, wouldn’t you agree that you may be able as well?

I am looking forward to how things unfold as I continue working on transforming myself following the teachings offered by Dr. Dispenza.

I’ll be updating my progress as I go along in this blog series.

How to Create Income From Home

Are you looking for a way to make money from somewhere safe and comfortable?

Or are you a lone wolf who would rather work solo than belonging to an organization?

Here are 5 ways to make that happen:

1. Start Blogging or An Online Business

You may have heard of a “blog” or “blogging” but never thought of starting one, like me. I would not have started it, if it was not for my health condition; I would just have continued to work as a conference interpreter.

However, because of the situation, I had to look for alternative ways of income that allows me to work alone in a safe environment. Being able to work from a safe place was my top priority.

When I did a research, I found out that so many people called bloggers earn enough money through blogging alone, that they were able to retire or quit their jobs.

I was completely tech-phobic and had no knowledge, whatsoever, on starting an online business. Plus, I was already fatigued from my conditions and my living situations, I was at a loss how to get started.

But fortunately, I was also able to come across a great solution to figure this all out. I found an education program on how to start an online business from scratch. The great thing about it is that I can learn while I earn!

You earn points and be redeemed for cash or with Paypal.

For every 10,000 points, you earn $10. The reward is paid within 7 business days.

Note, that this is only for U.S. Citizens.

Freelancing can help you make great income.

Whenever someone comes to your blog and clicks the ad and/or make purchases, you are paid.
