Healthy Sex Prevents IllnessWritten by Ruby Boyd
There are many positive correlations between love, sex and health. Being so, it has produced many questions.....
Have you wondered if an active sex life can truly alleviate pain?
Do sexually active people have fewer colds and bouts of flu?
Is it true that married people live longer than single or divorced people?
Can an active sex life help prevent disease and illnesses by strengthening our immune system?
I have these answers and more, read on....
An active sex life is both stimulating and rejuvenating to glandular system. When we make love pituitary gland, thyroid gland, adrenal glands, prostate and testes in men, and ovaries in women are thoroughly exercised.
The net result is that people in love look and feel better about themselves. Activation of sex center in brain has health effects on other brain centers. Every cell in body gets this message and is strengthened by it.
An active sex life strengthens our immune system. Scientists have compared nerve endings of happy, loving and sexually-fulfilled people with unhappy and sexually-unfulfilled people.
Apparently, large numbers of immune-system cells were gathered near nerve endings in "happy" people. A similar microscopic exam of "unhappy" and depressed persons showed no such gathering of immune-system cells.
Three Facts the Media Does Not Want You to KnowWritten by Nancy Hill
I don't know about you, but I usually feel rotten after I leaf through one of popular women's magazines. Have you ever noticed suddenly feeling ugly, fat, frumpy, or flawed after reading a copy of Vogue, Glamour, Mademoiselle, etc.? Well, it's not a coincidence. The fact is that most women's magazines don't exist to inform, help, or entertain us. The sole reason for their existence is to sell us stuff ~ mostly stuff we don't even need.
How do they do that successfully? In marketing, it's called "creating a need." They make us feel bad about ourselves so we'll buy products to fix us. It's a nasty little game they play...
1. Magazines cater to advertisers on what content to offer. For example, they won't publish photos of women who love and accept their normal bodies. If they do run an article with that idea (which doesn't happen often), they'll accompany it with a photo of an underweight model. Women who love their natural bodies aren't good customers for diet advertisers.
2. They consistently depict images of unattainable beauty. Models generally stand about 5'9" and weigh around 110 pounds. The average American woman is 5'4" and weighs 140. Most of us are never going to look like models no matter how hard we try. And not even models themselves can live up to photoshopped-to-perfection images that are created when their photos are digitally "airbrushed." The media specifically set out to convince us that we are unattractive unless we look like these fake images. Blatant ads or "recommendations" within articles convince us to eagerly buy products.
3. Then they keep changing rules. Every magazine issue has a better diet, different makeup, and/or latest style. They continually promote newest, best, improved, reformulated, etc. products. There is no way to ever keep up so we keep buying and buying, ever hopeful that latest purchase will make us look and feel good.
