“For overstretching of the ligaments in the legs, use an ice pack 4 times a day for 20 minutes at a time. Afterwards massage with the following:

* Rosemary 10 drops
* Eucalyptus 10 drops
* Peppermint 10 drops

Dilute this mixture in 2 tablespoons of Massage Oil

After 48 hours change to hot compresses, on which you have placed 2 drops each of Rosemary and Lavender. Between treatments Keep the leg wrapped with an elastic bandage and periodically massage the whole of the leg from the ankle to the thigh.”

ATLANTA, Georgia (AP) — Women going through treatment for breast cancer felt better when they tried Yoga, according to one of the first scientific studies of its kind.

“Our belief is something as simple and brief as a short (Yoga) program would be very useful” at combating side effects from cancer treatment, said Lorenzo Cohen, a psychologist who led the pilot study.

Yoga incorporates Meditation, relaxation, imagery, controlled breathing, stretching and physical movements. Although the study was small and preliminary, it’s one of the few to try to rigorously measure the benefits of this form of exercise, Cohen said.

Researchers at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center focused on 61 women who had surgery for breast cancer and now were getting six weeks of radiation treatment. Thirty women were assigned to a test group that took twice-a-week yoga classes. The others did not.

On a hot day we may feel like we�re melting, but did you know that our internal temperature (or core temperature) only changes by a few degrees. Our normal body temperature at rest is maintained between 36 and 38 degrees Celsius. Our core temperature is extremely important as the processes that occur in our cells need it to be very constant in order to keep the body alive. In fact, you will require medical intervention if it drops below 34.4 degrees, or above 41 degrees.

Sources of heat

Apart from the obvious source of heat: the environment, the body also has another major contributor: metabolic processes. Anything that increases energy production, the release of hormones, or basal metabolic rate, also increases heat production.

Body temperature whilst exercising

Body temperature reflects the balance between heat production and heat loss. As we exercise we increase our body temperature and for us to be able to continue we must be able to release the excess heat.

At one time, or another, we all think, �Why am I here?� Sometimes we think, �Why do I even bother?� Thinking about giving up is a temptation for all of humankind, but we continue to pursue our goals just like our ancestors did.

My wife, Marie, puts it bluntly, �You have two choices, push forward or give up.� Sometimes, it is a joy to sit in the back of her Yoga classes, so I can listen to a candid approach to life and teaching Yoga.

Look at how far we have come as a species in regards to Yoga, art, holistic health, medicine, technology, and much more. It is easy to look at the downside of humanity, but a lot of our ancestors did not give up. In fact, they recorded past failures and achievements from which we could learn.

The next obstacle is self-righteousness or delusion. This is the belief that you are right, even though the universal laws of morality say you are wrong. How can genocide be justified? How can one race, or religion, justify alienating another? How can innocent civilians be slaughtered for retribution?

Sorry to bring up such extremes, but self-righteousness and delusion are the tools of intolerance. Intolerance always justifies itself, no matter how many martyrs perish. If you want to control anger, please discard intolerance and judgment of others.

Very often, anger is created within the ego and is a response to imaginary threats. This is most ironic, when a full blown conflict erupts over a perceived threat, which did not really exist. So how can this violent chain of events, within the mind, be prevented? How can the ego and intolerance be controlled? - Through self-realization - also known as, �Vichara.� This is not Meditation, but a realization of �I am.� This is rational or logical thought, but true self-analysis requires time. For mankind to grasp collective sanity is a never- ending battle, but there is another way around this impasse.

Yoga has been able to help many of mankind�s ailments, but what about anger management? How can Yoga prevent rage and the burning desire for revenge? Many people say: �Don�t get mad, get even.� Is this what we are talking about?

As any Yoga practitioner knows, Yoga has nothing to do with �getting even.� However, revenge has become �the special of the day.� Many people feel revenge is justified, and we all know that revenge is a result of anger - whether it is slow burning or instant.

As I have mentioned before, Yoga does not stop when you roll up your Yoga mat. Most of what you take care of on your Yoga mat is the physical aspect of Yoga. This is a wonderful thing, but the rewards of your practice should be carried with you wherever you go.

When you have decided to start with your Yoga practice, it is imperative for you to learn how to perform a pose properly. Thus it is advisable for you to find a right teacher who will guide you in the correct manner of performing these poses.

Since yogic exercises involve the static and isometric contraction of the muscles, where the muscles are held in a state of Tension without causing the corresponding body part to move; it is important to note that the stretching or contraction of the muscles should not be done abruptly or suddenly. You should endeavour to reach the final pose as slowly as you can, so that there is a steady rise in the Tension of the muscles. Always reach the final posture slowly through the intermediate postures. Master all these postures slowly one by one.

Harmony is something that is quite elusive in these modern times. I needn’t explain this statement to anyone who is juggling family, work, commuting, etc., while trying to fit in financial planning, exercise, a modicum of recreation, and who knows what else, only to have a health crisis, or some other “deal with me now’ situation occur without warning.

Add to this recipe the stimulants prescribed by Dr. Technology, a helpful yet sometimes overzealous and seductive caregiver, and the world does indeed seem to be spinning out of control, or at least at a faster whirl on its axis.

Yoga, learned properly and incorporated into one’s life as a daily practice, transforms. Some who are reading this may know this from experience; others may have dabbled in a class or two and found it helpful at the time, but may never have learned moment to moment use to relieve Stress and anxiety.
