Transcendental Meditation: Oprah And Other Celebs Who Embrace The Practice

Commented Jul 20, 2014 at 17:07:08 in Healthy Living

“The purpose of meditation is to help you to feel or experience the divinity inside of you. It is beyond the scope of this comment to say whether Jesus or Buddha did this. Of course Buddha had to go on a search to find what he was looking for. Jesus did not preach to anyone until after He fasted for 40 days. http://hub.me/ag0df There is nothing wrong with finding the peace and fulfillment that you are looking for, inside of yourself.”

“"For example, cooked tomatoes contain three to four times more lycopene than raw tomatoes." Maybe a company that makes tomato paste did this study. The federal government believed it but they found that watermelon has more lycopene than tomatoes. So no one eats fried watermelon so they tested it to see how much more bioavailable cooked lycopene was. They found no difference so this is a myth. This article tells more about this and has a link to the federal government study. http://bit.ly/JO2FTk God or nature did not get it wrong.”

“There has never been a study done that shows that not eating food causes starvation. That does not mean that it is not true. The above information came from medical doctors treating thousands of people with cancer. They noticed that the majority of people with cancer had root canals. They will now not treat someone for cancer unless they get the root canal tooth extracted.

According to Dr. Oz, studies show that flossing teeth reduces your chance of getting a heart attack. How does that work? They have no idea but that is what the study showed.”

“That's bologna. I unfortunately lost two parents to cancer later in their lives. At no time did any cancer specialist indicate that they wouldn't treat a patient with RCT or feel that residual bacteria remaining from pulpal disease induce cancer. Please get that out of your head.
If you'd like to read the position paper on periodontal disease and its relationship to a persons overall health especially heart disease it easy to find on the internet. It boils down to inflammatory agents are released from the blood vessels in inflamed periodontal (gum) tissue. Those agents can damage heart blood vessels. Their is the connection between flossing/healthy gums and heart disease.”

“The majority of people that have cancer also eat chicken. The majority of people that have cancer wear pants. Does that mean that chicken and cancer cause cancer. Of course not. You have to show cause and effect .Root Canal teeth do not cause cancer. Removing teeth with root canals is NOT done by the vast majority of the medical profession. Dr. Reid is correct. And Loretta . Dr Reid cant be objective because he has spent years studying this subject?? Unfortunately, your mother died of a horrible disease. It had nothing to do with that root canal.
As for flossing, it decreases inflammation in the gums and reduces the amount of bacteria in your circulatory system which has many beneficial effects.”

justagirl on May 31, 2014 at 11:50:54

“Reid has too much skin in the game to be objective. Anecdotally, my mother had a drill bit break off in the tooth during a root canal. She died of pancreatic cancer.”

“This will be a much better thing. But many health experts say it is better to extract a dead tooth than leave it in. They say a dead tooth breeds very bad bacteria. Dr Issels found that 97% of his patients that died of cancer had had a root canal. It is better to lose a tooth than to lose your life to cancer. http://hub.me/afXik Of course good dental hygiene can prevent cavities.”

“With over 15 million root canals performed each year, don't you suppose that there is a just as great a likelihood that many cancer patients will have had root canals? Where is the data that shows that the root actually CAUSED the cancer? Please provide a link showing actual causation, not just coincidence.

It's like saying 98% of people who had cancer also wore an article of black clothing more than 5 days per week, and then assuming that black clothing must be causing cancer.”

Michaelrob on Jun 1, 2014 at 09:56:16

“After reading about root canals and cancer patients a few months ago, I opted not to have a root canal. I wont take a chance like that.”

“Do you have access to research studies to back up these claims? I like to see proof first hand before I just believe someone's comments.”

reidodontist on May 30, 2014 at 23:25:14

“The term dead is very misleading. The term non-vital better describes a tooth that is either affected by the diseased pulp or has had the root canal therapy. In the former case you are quit right, the diseased pulp and the untreated canal breeds damaging bacteria. In the later, a competently treated root canal eliminates disease causing bacteria and allows healing of the supporting structures of the tooth. Root canal therapy is highly effective when done properly and there are ZERO reputable studies that show root canal therapy causes cancer. I bet my life on it!”

“Here is what I do know about melanoma. It is supposed to have an association with sunlight and businesses want to sell sunscreen to make money. The CDC has divided melanoma into 4 rates from the highest to the lowest. The further from the equator that you get, the weaker the sunlight.

Arizona is closer to the equator than most states, being right above Mexico. It is the sunniest state in the entire country. It has the lowest rate of melanoma. Minnesota is further from the equator than most states being right below Canada. It has the highest rate of melanoma of the 4 rates. Also as people go further south in the U.S., the rate of breast cancer goes down. http://hub.me/afkC5 The above is called epidemiology.”

“The survey of people with age and happiness starts at age 18. But kids have the potential to be extremely happy since they are not concerned with all these problems in the world. If kids feel loved and are engaged in a really fun activity, they can be euphoric.

Also it is not like happiness and having a meaningful life are different. Positive psychologists are dealing with 2 types of happiness. One is hedonic happiness that is about pleasure. The other is eudaimonic happiness that deals with having a meaningful life with more purpose. http://hub.me/aglgV

“The only people that get colds or the flu are people who need to get them. Their immune systems are compromised and they are open to many things. They are especially good for people who eat too much or do not get enough sleep. They can force people to eat less and sleep more and these things are good for health.

Here is an analogy. What on the planet is destroying the planet? People are. So germs are not bad for people. The lifestyle habits of people are hurting them. If you have a healthy immune system then you will not get colds or flu since you will not need to. http://bit.ly/flu-cure George Washington had a sore throat and so they bled 3 pints of blood from him and he died.

“Some phytochemicals in grapes like quercetin are found in many fruits. But resveratrol is not a common phytochemical. The only food with more resveratrol than grapes is boiled peanuts, not regular peanuts. Grapes also contain chlorogenic acid that is the substance in green coffee that Dr. Oz says helps people to lose weight. But the only 2 things that have proven to be anti-aging with studies is eating less food (calories) and resveratrol. http://bit.ly/yy7OvF

Little kids can eat lots of grapes but I do not think that they should be drinking wine. Also alcohol can be very destructive for native Americans that drink it, since their ancestors have not been drinking it for many centuries. Grapes are also sprayed with lots of chemicals so it is better to eat organic grapes.”

“Dr. Oz has his patients do yoga for health. The reason that so many people do yoga is the same reason that people do sex. It makes them feel good.

Also people should not do any exercise right after eating because digestion takes a lot of energy and the body has only so much to go around. I have been doing yoga since age 12.”

“Huffington Post did not bother to mention the law while talking about this article. It is under the general topic of statutory rape. Florida law says: "A child under 16 years of age cannot consent to sexual activity, regardless of the age of the defendant. A child who is at least 16 years of age and less than 18 years of age cannot consent to sexual activity if the defendant is 24 years of age or older."

So she should have waited until her 16th birthday. Since I am over (just an example) 24, then I would need to wait until she is 18. "Lewd or lascivious conduct: Lewd or lascivious conduct [192] with someone less than 16 years of age." "Lewd or lascivious battery: Sexual activity [194] with someone more than 12 years of age and less than 16 years of age."

"Lewd or lascivious molestation: Lewd or lascivious molestation [197] with someone less than less than 16 years of age where the defendant is at least 18 years of age." Note that this crime is the same if the defendant is under 18.

The above is legal in Hawaii: "Children under 14 years of age are unable to consent to sexual activities under any circumstances. Individuals less than 16 years of age and at least 14 years of age can consent to sexual activities if the defendant is less than 5 years older than the victim or is the victim’s spouse."”

aviandonn on May 28, 2013 at 20:23:35

“Why would the age of the other person change the age at which someone can give consent. These laws seem almost frantically haphazard, like the legislators who developed them were floundering around, drawing on personal experiences and memories to write the laws.”

Also whether someone is a good person or not is a judgement. For example they showed that on 9/11, there were people dancing in the street in some Muslim countries in celebration.”
