Week 1 of Going Vegetarian

Russ Jamieson Health, Spirituality

Vegetarians and vegans seem a little smug, don’t they?  I used to think they had a pompousness attitude, but in reality it’s not them, it’s your perception of them.  This is a defense mechanism.  I thought of them this way because of my own guilt, shame, and denial.  I knew deep down that what they were doing was right, and what I was doing (killing and eating animals) was ultimately wrong.  This deep seated belief told me that they were more enlightened and conscious beings, more aware, and more aligned with the world and the creatures that live among us… I didn’t like vegans and vegetarians because it forced me to face that part of myself that was playing into …

Going Bald? Why YOU Should Just Shave It!

Russ Jamieson Health, Personal Development

You’re balding… Do you shave it or desperately hold on to every last hair? I avoided the rain because it made my hair look thinner.  I avoided the wind because it highlighted my bald spots.  I avoided bright lighting because it showed how much hair I had lost.  I tried Rogaine, hair thickening shampoo, and  at one time even considered a hair transplant to stop the hair loss I was experiencing.  What had my life become?  How did something so seemingly meaningless have so much control over me?  Was it the loss of control?  The loss of identity and self image? I first started noticing my hair loss around 2008.  The first time I noticed it, I panicked.  Why was …

The Mind Body Connection

Russ Jamieson Health, Science

Thinking is not just a matter of the mind. Learning, thinking, and remembering do occur in the brain, but it also occurs throughout the whole body. Every cell in the human body is intelligent, and contributes to the whole mind-body system. The chemical interactions between the body’s cells and the mind plays a critical role in connecting the two systems into one. Understanding the mind-body connection in thinking, learning, and emotion is essential to improve our thinking and learning. Every single cell in our body is intelligent. Every cell in our body thinks, not just our brains. According to Conner (2004), “Scientists now can show that all matter in the human body has a built in intelligence, as well as …

Russ Jamieson Health, Spirituality

Reflexology – Hands, Feet, and Ears

Russ Jamieson Health, Spirituality

Reflexology is a lot like acupressure and acupuncture, but instead of using the points along the body’s meridians, it is used through the feet, hands, and the ears. It provides a lot of relaxation and promotes energy flow throughout the body since each point on the feet/hands/ears corresponds to a point in the body. All you have to do is apply gentle pressure to a point.

Live For 1000 Years?

Russ Jamieson Health, Random, The Strange

Is it possible to live for 1000 years? According to Cambridge University geneticist Aubrey de Grey, it will be, and soon. Ageing is just something that happens to our bodies due to different types of molecular and cellular damage. Science is getting incredibly powerful, and soon, we may be able to address the challenges our bodies face as we get older. Think about this. In 1800, the life expectancy was 35! In 1900, it was 47. Today, it is 78. The methods to repair these deficiencies are already in the works or in preliminary testing. It will take some more time, but within 15 – 20 years, with good progress, we will have the technology to get these methods available …
