Colon Cleansing

Colon cleansing is an excellent way to improve your health and help you lose weight. The human body is not immune to environmental toxins and the more toxic our body gets, the faster we age. Colon cleansing can detoxify your system, can improve your energy level and health, and can also prevent you from aging prematurely.

Colon cleansing helps remove toxins from your body. Digestive problems and constipation are signs of an unhealthy colon. Over time, your colon may become unhealthy and lose its ability to properly eliminate all the waste materials from your digestive tract. This is due to a combination of poor diet, lack of exercise, stress, lifestyle and a variety of other factors. When the human colon becomes less active, the body does not eliminate waste as effectively. Therefore, when the elimination process is not functioning properly, deposits of waste matter build up along the wall of your colon or in the pockets of the colon.  Normally, your body pushes waste out of your colon in 16 to 24 hours. When you’re not able to eliminate properly, these wastes remain in your body for days. Even worse, if some of this waste material deposits along the colon wall, it may not leave for months or even years. The average healthy person who is not constipated will carry about 5-20 pounds of fecal matter in their intestines and colon at any one time. However, people who are constipated or irregular can be carrying more than 20 pounds of this toxic fecal matter, which is continually poisoning their body and organs. According to the National Institute of Health, over 4.5 million Americans are constipated most of the time. Eighty percent of all disease and discomfort is related to a toxic colon. An unhealthy colon leads to an unhealthy body.

Sometimes we need to detoxify our colon due to all the chemicals and synthetic products that we are exposed to. Our environment including air, water and the foods we eat are toxic due to the pollution caused by the industrial chemicals, pesticides, and food additives. Our system becomes overburdened due to the highly processed foods, the unbalanced diet and the contaminated environment.

The body’s natural cleansing process depends largely on exercise. Exercise prevents the toxins from building up. You must drink lots of water and eat lots of fiber. Make this a regular practice and you will not need a colon cleansing program.

Our Green Technologies – Week 8

My wife Lynne and I have done a lot of research into green technologies the directly affect our lives and of course the pocket book.  We started very simply by changing out our light bulbs around the house with fluorescent bulbs.  The cost is very much close to the same as incandescent bulbs so as they burnt out we replaced them with the new technology.  I have not done the math to determine the cost effectiveness yet but it is probably worth the effort.  Take out a 60 watt bulb and replace it with a 12 watt bulb times thirty bulbs….you get the picture.  So without changing our lifestyle at all, we save money and use much less electricity.

As I was getting ready to retire we started looking for property and/or out retirement home.  So we started investigating the green technologies for ways to better our investments in the long term.  We are in the process of purchasing a log home that is better insulated than 90% of homes in America and has geothermal assisted heating and cooling.  So we lower the cost to heat and cool and we have a lower carbon footprint.  Now we haven’t even moved in yet but we are way ahead of the game.  The home is all electric so we plan on installing an alternate heat source of an LP Fireplace.  We also intend on looking into solar power at least to augment what we have coming in over the electricitygrid.  The home is situated in the trees, but we do have areas that the sun gets through.  We would like to utilize wind power also, but so far only one type of turbine may fit the bill.  This is a vertical “squirrel cage” type fan mounted on a pole from Mariah Power.  It sort of looks like a skiny tree.  As a matter of fact you could line your driveway with them….I mean I wouldn’t but you could.

In any case I believe Lynne and I found our niche in Green Technologies.  It will allow us to further delve into better ways to live that will help  the environment or at least lesson our carbon footprint.  So as we find things out we will document them, put our personal touch on how we will use them and how we like them.  STAY TUNED!

Geothermal Heat Pump

The geothermal heat pump is a highly efficient renewable energy that is gaining wide acceptance as a heating and cooling source for use in both residential and commercial buildings. Geothermal heating and cooling uses the relatively constant temperature of the earth usually between 50 and 60 degrees to heat and cool homes and businesses. The geothermal heat pump uses 40-70 % less energy than traditional heating and cooling systems. Geothermal heat pumps are used for space heating and cooling, as well as water heating. The technology relies on the fact that the Earth (beneath the surface) remains at a relatively constant temperature throughout the year, warmer than the air above it during the winter and cooler in the summer, very much like a cave. Geothermal energy is clean (emits little or no greenhouse gases), reliable (95%), and homegrown (making us less dependent on foreign oil).

A geothermal heat pump system consists of pipes that are buried in the ground, a heat exchanger, and ductwork into the building. In winter, heat from the warmer ground goes through the heat exchanger and ductwork into the building. In summer, hot air from the house is pulled through the heat exchanger into the cooler ground.

A geothermal heat pump system costs about $2,500 per ton of capacity. The typically sized home would use a three-ton unit costing roughly $7,500. That initial cost is nearly twice the price of a regular heat pump system that would probably cost about $4,000. Drilling costs which range from $10,000 to $30,000 or more also have to be added in. The investment can usually be recouped in five to ten years.

Geothermal heat pumps are durable and require little maintenance. They have fewer mechanical components than other systems, and most of those components are underground, sheltered from the weather. The underground piping used in the system is often guaranteed to last 25 to 50 years and is virtually worry-free. The components inside the house are small and easily accessible for maintenance. Air is distributed through ductwork, just as in a regular forced-air system.

Preventing Aerobic Injuries

Aerobic exercise is a great way to lose weight, build endurance, and maintain a healthy heart. However, aerobic exercise must be done safely or you could sustain an injury. The majority of aerobic injuries are due to falls and usually involve the knee or ankle. You can also sustain an injury due to overuse. Overuse injuries usually involve the knee, foot, or shin. Aerobic exercise can cause or aggravate back injuries. Injuries can be reduced by doing a proper warm up and cool down. To avoid injuries make sure that you choose activities that are suited to your fitness level, exercise with the proper technique, and know how to use the equipment properly and safely.

Aerobic exercise requires lots of movement so you should have a pair of shoes specifically designed for aerobics. Aerobic shoes should fit well, be stable, have shock absorption, and be well cushioned. Your aerobic clothing should be loose fitting to allow freedom of movement. Your clothing should be cotton or linen to allow the sweat to evaporate so that you will not become overheated during exercise. Don’t wear tight fitting clothing because it cuts off blood flow and restricts your movement. You should also invest in a good sports bra to improve comfort.

Your workout area should be large enough for you to move around in comfortably and not bang into anything. Your workout equipment should be in the best shape possible so that you won’t sustain an injury. You should also have plenty of water available so that you don’t become dehydrated during exercise. Your workout should be challenging but pushing yourself too hard can result in injuries such as pulled muscles, cramps, or other injuries. If you become injured because your workout is too strenuous you could miss days or even weeks of exercise.

Benefits of a Tankless Water Heater

Jay and I have been thinking of getting a tankless water heater that runs on propane. There are many benefits of a tankless water heater. Tankless water heaters are small compact units that provide hot water as it is needed. Hot water is not stored like it is in a tank type water heater. A standard tank water heater keeps 40-80 gallons of water heated to a temperature of at least 120 degrees every minute of every day whether your home or not. Because tankless water heaters do not store hot water, they are much more energy efficient and can reduce water heating bills by 10-20 percent. A conventional tank heater is constantly heating and reheating water because heat loss occurs because the water is just sitting in the tank. Tankless water heaters eliminate this heat loss which reduces energy consumption by 20-30 %. According to the Department of Energy, the he average household spends between 14-25 percent of its energy budget on heating water. Tankless water heaters last twice as long as traditional water heaters since they are less likely to corrode since they do not store water. Tankless water heaters also are less likely to leak also since they are not under constant pressure. Tankless water heaters are more expensive than traditional water heaters but they provide significant energy savings and they last longer so they will pay for themselves in a short amount of time. The energy to power tank water heaters come from fossil fuels such as coal, oil, or natural gas which are harmful to the environment. By reducing the amount of power used to heat water, the amount of fossil fuels burned will be less which will reduce greenhouse gas emissions. If all Americans would replace their tank hot water heaters with a tankless water heater, almost 300 million gallons of fuel oil or over 160 million gallons of propane, or over 6 billion kilowatt hours of electricity would be saved a year.

Masterclass Week 7

Well we are moving forward in John Thornhill’s Marketing Masterclass.  This week we are continuing to Blog and to review each others sites to get ideas for are own sites and to help others that are having problems with things we have already resolved on our own.  To that point John has now set up a Masterclass Forum so we can get to know each other better and share our knowledge and experiences with each other.  The forum has only been up just over a day now and let me tell you it is being well used.  I learned several things about HTML coding in posts and blogs.  John posted an additional video about sending a bulk email out from our AWeber account using our lists being developed through our blogs which helped me for the future.  I would love to send out a bulk email, but lets be serious….at this point I only have 4 subscribers.  Guess I need to drive more traffic to my site. (I can use help here people!)

In any case this week is stretching me into areas that I have never been involved with before.  I never used a forum before, but it seems to be working out well.  Then by reading one of my classmates help pages I followed him to Twitter where I now have an account.  Follow me to Twitter  See what I mean, this is all new to me, but I am making progress.
