Recognizing Blessings and Yoga


Blessings are abundant, plentiful and bountiful not always capable or even required to be counted. When we learn to recognize our blessings we will realize not everyones blessings are the same, and at that time we come to the full understanding that our blessings are countless.

Therefore the old adage, “Count Your Blessings” is a way to get us to recognize and acknowledge our true individual blessings. Ask the question, what does the word blessings mean to you?

For many people our blessing is the simple things in life, a place to sleep, food to eat, health, wealth, a job. Or you may be recovering from an illness, accident, divorce from a spouse (for some people that is truly a blessing), or recovering from an addiction, or anything that has enlightened you and has enabled you to pass the blessing on.

When someone has blessed you, pass it on. One blessing opens up the door for many more blessings. Blessing is truly countless. So many of us get caught up in what we don’t have, we complain about everything and everybody.

We think that we are the only ones going through some trials and tribulations. We all have our share of discomfort. However, when we realize just how blessed we are, we let go of all the small stuff too. It is said that through yoga and meditation we bring balance in the brain by activating the left side as well as the right side of the brain. It is said that the right side of the brain is our creative side and the left side is our logical side.

Therefore, if we have blocked passageways due to sinus congestion and we are breathing through one nostril, whichever is blocked we are breathing into the opposite side. When both nostrils are open and we are breathing in rhythm, we can maintain mental and emotional balance by allowing ourselves to become aware of whom we really are. When we consciously realize the state of our minds, we begin to let go of the chatter that is telling us we are not blessed, that we are sick or unhappy. As we begin to inhale and exhale and let go and let God, then and only then, we can realize that it is clear to see it is virtually impossible. Sat Nam.

Treating Infertility


Part One

Many couples who want to have a child have not been able to do so. About 15% of couples in the United States are infertile.

Before you are treated for infertility, you and your partner must be evaluated by a doctor. This may help pinpoint the cause or causes of infertility. The type of treatment you receive depends on the outcome of your evaluation.

Causes of Infertility

For healthy, young couples, the odds are about 20% that a woman will conceive (become pregnant) during any one menstrual cycle. This figure starts to decline in a woman’s late 20s and early 30s and decreases even more after age 35. A man’s fertility also declines with age, but not as early.

Infertility may be caused by a problem with the woman, the man, the couple or their lifestyle. Infertility may be caused by more than one factor.

Sometimes a cause of infertility cannot be found. Whether the problem is with one or both members of the couple, there are a number of treatment options.

If the problem is linked to lifestyle, there are things you can do to help. For instance, your doctor may suggest you change when and how often you have sex.

You may need to lose or gain weight or stop smoking. You may need to avoid being exposed to certain chemicals or substances.

Medical treatment may be needed to help you become pregnant. If so, you should be aware of what is involved. Some treatments require a great deal of expense and effort from both partners. You may want to check your health insurance to see if you are covered.

You also should know the expected success rates and how success is defined. Some clinics define success based on the number of live births.

Others define success based on the number of pregnancies achieved. Discuss with your doctor the success rates of your options.

Next month’s article will discuss      various treatment options.

Varicose veins are enlarged veins that can be blue, red, or flesh-colored. They often look like cords and appear twisted and bulging. They can be swollen and raised above the surface of the skin. Varicose veins are often found on the thighs, backs of the calves, or the inside of the leg. Spider veins are like varicose veins but smaller. They also are closer to the surface of the skin than varicose veins. Often, they are red or blue. They can look like tree branches or spider webs with their short, jagged lines. They can be found on the legs and face and can cover either a very small or very large area of skin. As a man, you probably enjoy being outside, and it’s…
