(I think I got ahead of myself. Hope this goes out on Wednesday? Didn’t mean to publish on Tuesday – it wasn’t finished).
Well summer has sort of come I think, at least this week. It will be raining again by the weekend – I should have all the mulching done by then, and the flowers I can gather, all brought in for pressing, drying or Bach Remedies. There maybe not so many yoga classes, but there is heaps to do.
SCHEDULE. (Studio closing on the 20th for the Christmas Holidays)
STUDIO YOGA: MONDAY 1PM, and FRIDAY 5.30 – we are slowing down down in December – full steam ahead in January.
ALL ZOOM is closing for December apart from CCP information sessions which I will advertise prior to the day – we will be back in January. It is hard to remember “life before zoom” – I do remember saying that I was never going to do zoom!
PRIVATE CONSULTS: I am still available for consultation on zoom and in the Studio until the 2oth December. Tarot, Yoga, or BACH/Natural Therapies.
LOOKING AFTER THE MUSCLES…. AND GETTING A GOOD NITE’S SLEEP
I have been speaking to you all about MAGNESIUM ever since I can remember. You all love a MAGNESIUM LOTION, and here for you is my very own, I use it all the time. It is such a wonderful product, not just for muscle aches and pains. My clients tell me (and I agree), if you wipe it on your tummy at bedtime, it enhances sleep.
I have put together in a clear plastic zipper bag – **MAGNESIUM MUSCLE EASE PACK $42.50 including postage (1 x muscle ease lotion and 1 x pack of muscle ease bath/shower salts with lavender). By sending you a pack rather than one product I can ease the pain of the Postage too.
I also make a (Natural) Magnesium Spray Deodorant $16.50 including postage. Individual postage at $10 per item makes it prohibitive to send alone I think – but you can be the judge of that.. If you want one, I suggest that you add it to your pack. All three products come to $49.50 including postage. It doesn’t increase the postage, therefore your $10 postage over three products isn’t too bad. Keep looking at the Shop on our HOME PAGE at www.yogabeautiful.com.au – I will have it in the shop by Thursday – I will remind you in the Friday Newsletter.
I call it “news” because when we do speak about the Bible in our Teacher Training sessions, my students are always surprised at its relevance. It usually is not a part of the Bible that has been read, or they have been read an old interpretation.
How about Leviticus 13. Yes, it is a book of rules and it is in the Old Testament – before the time of Jesus, so at least 3,400 to 3,500 years ago, but I would like to focus on the rules around Leprosy. It is surprising how much their rules around this disease are like the rules around Covid, although Leprosy is caused by a bacteria not a virus. It was all the same to them because they did not recognise either – it was at the time believed to be an incurable disease. Interesting that the first signs are the inability to FEEL.
The Priests at that time were the doctors, the spiritual leaders, the law-makers. If you found a suspicious sore (and I bet they covered them up until they couldn’t hide them anymore), you went to the Priest and you were isolated for 7 days, then you had to report in, and depending on if it had healed you were again isolated… at the point where it was confirmed you had the disease, you had to move into a community of sufferers (away from the rest of the community), cover the bottom part of your face when moving around, no haircuts available, your clothes were ragged because accessing community baths etc was not possible out side your community, and you had to let the outside community know you were a sufferer by all these signs, plus you had to call out “unclean, unclean” twice. Unlike today and covid, if you didn’t obey the rules the penalty was DEATH.
COVID AND BOTOX…..
I didn’t see any massive protests when BOTOX was first brought in. I wonder how many anti-vac persons are happy to have botulism injected into their bodies?
Botox is a drug made from a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It’s the same toxin that causes a life-threatening type of food poisoning called BOTULISM. People pay about $200 per injection I believe. Doctors use it in small doses to treat health problems, including:
- Temporary smoothing and improving your appearance – Severe underarm sweating – Uncontrollable blinking – Misaligned eyes – Chronic migraine – Overactive bladder
Botox injections work by weakening or paralyzing certain muscles or by blocking certain nerves. The effects last about three to twelve months, depending on what you are treating. The most common side effects are pain, swelling, or bruising at the injection site. You could also have flu-like symptoms, headache, and upset stomach. Injections in the face may also cause temporary drooping eyelids. (and I have witnessed the onset of Parkinson’s like symptoms which do not diminish over time) You should not use Botox if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Every injection no matter what it is, has side effects.. Because Botox is mostly a cosmetic procedure people are willing to overlook or ignore the side effects – Maybe they could introduce something like that into a Covid injection, so you could have your Botox, and a Covid at the same time AND FREE. Maybe Billy Connolly could do a comic skit on the topic, and then everything would be OK. There would be waiting times for free “Bovid” injections!
See you on the mat (even if not in the Studio).
