Yoga Sun Salutation.

Five years ago, I attended my first YOGA Class in Alor Setar.
I liked the class very much. Its was very relaxing and I come out of each lesson walking straight and full of energy!
Two years later, I attended another class in Changlun , I learnt the same 1st Stage Yoga, hoping the class will continue with the 2nd stage...but it never did.
I read somewhere that it is good enough if you can do 4 Sun Salutations each time for daily exercise and increasing to 12 sun salutations as your strength and stamina increases.
The serenity of Yoga Sun Salutation is a series of 12 continuous movements which will tone and strengthen your whole body while increasing your flexibility.
Yoga done with proper breathing sequence will help you develop peace of mind ,dropping stress, improvement your balance, gain energy and lose weight etc etc...
Look at the youtube below......

are you ready for it???
Go register yourself into a good Yoga class!

Removing Gallstones Naturally

Many things happened this week .....
Two persons I know , was diagnose with gallstones.
I recall hearing my brother telling me about his Gallstones Removal Remedy, so I decided to contact him for the remedy.

1. Liver 2. Common Bile Duct3. Gallstones4. Gallbladder

Sharing here the easy-to-do-at-home gall bladder cleansing:
It has worked for many. If it works for you please pass on the good news. Chiu Nan is not charging for it, so we should make it free for everyone. Your reward is when someone, through your word of mouth, benefits from the regime. Gallstones may not be everyone's concern. But they should be because we all have them.Moreover, gallstones may lead to cancer. "Cancer is never the first illness," Chiu Nan points out. "Usually, there are a lot of other problems leading to cancer. In my research in China, I came across some materials which say that people with cancer usually have stones. We all have gallstones. It's a matter of big or small, many or few. One of the symptoms of gallstones is a feeling of bloatedness after a heavy meal. You feel like you can't digest the food. If it gets more serious, you feel pain in the liver area." So if you think you have gallstones, Chiu Nan offers the following method to remove them naturally.
The treatment is also good for those with a weak liver, because the liver and gallbladder are closely linked.
1. For the first five days, take four glasses of apple juice every day. Or eat four or five apples, whichever you prefer. Apple juice softens the gallstones. During the five days, eat normally.
2. On the sixth day, take no dinner.
3. At 6 PM, take a teaspoon of Epsom salt (magnesium sulphate) with a glass of warm water.
4. At 8 PM, repeat the same. Magnesium sulphate opens the gallbladder ducts.
5. At 10 PM, take half cup olive oil (or sesame oil) with half cup fresh lemon juice. Mix it well and drink it. The oil lubricates the stones to ease their passage.
The next morning, you will find green stones in your stools. "Usually they float," Chiu Nan notes. "You might want to count them. I have had people who passes 40, 50 or up to 100 stones. Very many." "Even if you don't have any symptoms of gallstones, you still might have some. It's always good to give your gall bladder a clean-up now and then.
