Good Morning! Not quite 6am here.
And I have yet to turn off my Dr. Thompson sleep cd.
I began using Dr. Jeffery Thompson's Brain Wave music to help me sleep after a hospitalization I had a year and half ago.
I was emotionally drained, on edge and vulnerable that I could not sleep for fear that something would happen to me related to my hospitalization. Not a good place to be in when you are alone, far from family and have children to care for.
The emotional mud slide was building up due to lack of sleep that only after using these sleep cds (He has cds for Creativity, Meditation, etc...as well) was I able to actually go into a sleep at night and began to emotionally heal and physically heal.
Being sleep deprived and emotionally stressed after an illness can leave one very open and vulnerable.
Thankfully I have healed since then and move towards greater and greater strengths. :-)
You can find out more about Dr. Jeffrey Thompson via his website Center for NeuroAcoustic Research.
To this day I continue to be a big fan and highly recommend his music.
Remember I told you about a Physiology exam I was to take? Well I almost aced it.... missed one question out of 48. And I also made an A (missed one) on the short terminology quiz that was given.

I'd like to share with you an article a dear friend of mine sent to me last night. I went and searched the original source and it is linked below.
You are what you eat, so eat well.
Whole Food Signatures
A stupendous insight of civilisations past has now been confirmed by today's investigative, nutritional sciences. They have shown that what was once called "The Doctrine of Signatures" was astoundingly correct.
Referred to in the classical period of Rome as the "Law of Similarities" it is now called by scientists, "Teleological Nutritional Targeting".
It now contends that every whole food has a pattern that resembles a body organ or physiological function and that this pattern acts as a signal or sign as to the benefit the food provides the eater.
|A sliced Carrot looks like the human eye. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye...and YES science now shows that carrots greatly enhance blood flow to and function of the eyes.|
|A Tomato has four chambers and is red. The heart is red and has four chambers. All of the research shows tomatoes are indeed pure heart and blood food.|
|Grapes hang in a cluster that has the shape of the heart. Each grape looks like a blood cell and all of the research today shows that grapes are also profound heart and blood vitalizing food.|
|A Walnut looks like a little brain, a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebelums. Even the wrinkles or folds are on the nut just like the neo-cortex. We now know that walnuts help develop over 3 dozen neuro-transmitters for brain function.|
|Kidney Beans actually heal and help maintain kidney function and yes, they look exactly like the human kidneys.|
Celery, Bok Choy, Rhubarb and more look just like bones. These foods specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23% sodium and these foods are 23% sodium. If you don't have enough sodium in your diet the body pulls it from the bones, making them weak. These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body.
|Egg Plant, Avocadoes and Pears target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female - they look just like these organs. Today's research shows that when a woman eats 1 avocado a week, it balances hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight and prevents cervicle cancers. And how profound is this? .... it takes exactly 9 months to grow an Avocado from blossom to ripened fruit. There are over 14,000 phytolytic chemical constituents of nutrition in each one of these foods (modern science has only studied and named about 141 of them).|
|Figs are full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow. Figs increase the motility of male sperm and increase the numbers of sperm as well to overcome male sterility.|
|Sweet Potatoes look like the pancreas and actually balance the glycemic index of diabetics.|
|Olives assist the health and function of the ovaries|
|Grapefruits, Oranges, and other Citrus fruits look just like the mamary glands of the female and actually assist the health of the breasts and the movement of lymph in and out of the breasts.|
|Onions look like body cells. Todays research shows that onions help clear waste materials from all of the body cells. They even produce tears which wash the epithelial lasyers of the eyes|
|Bananas, Cucumber, Zuchini and more target the size and strengh of the male sexual organ. It's true!|
|Peanuts have a profound effect on the testicles and sexual libido. Peanuts were banned as a food for males by the church ofin during the middle ages. Most people don't realize that arginine, the main component of Viagra, comes from peanuts.|
