Your Questions About An Impaired Immune System

November 5, 2013

Susan asks…

How can mindfulness promote your health and wellness?

I know it is good for your mental health but what about physically?

admin answers:

The biggest effect that practicing a mindful lifestyle will have on your health is lowering stress levels. Stress is related to so many physical conditions, including one of the biggest… Hypertension. By being mindful the amount stress in your life is decreased (because you’re not thinking about work when you’re with your kids, for example). When you are stressed, your body releases hormones that raise BP, increase heart rate and impair the immune system. Being mindful during meals will help you to eat less, which in turn will maintain you at a healthy weight. Also, being mindful of your body in general gives you an overall sense of what’s going on in your body. Some of us don’t listen to what our bodies tell us. If you are truly mindful and in touch with your body, you will pick up on tiny things that just don’t seem normal. This can lead to early recognition and correction of disease.

Ken asks…

How much stress and anxiety can the body take before it suffers from a heart attack or a stroke?

I understand this qustion is very hard to answer, but make of it what you will and answer the best you can, thanks, appreciated.
Say a person who doesn’t smoke, has no history of ill physical health. But has been through non stop stress and anxiety and several long term traumas over the past 10 years, suffering from constant stress every second of every minute of every hour etc and has constant high level stressors which they cannot escape. They are constantly running on addrenaline, and suffer from chest pains very regularly, they are 20.
Please don’t ask questions just answer the best you can, cheers.

admin answers:

Much depends on age,sex, nature of stress/anxiety so time frame varies from sudden death or it may take years.
Lets take broken heart syndrome, once you turn on light and shout happy birthday, it is all over in 15 minutes, due to acute trauma to myocardium and its blood supply, same with sudden bad news, or sudden surprises.
Young person can tolerate better, but conditions do apply (e.g soldiers) get trauma so often that they suffer from stiff heart Sydrome and sudden death is emminant after a blast.
In anxiety adrenaline does not play that muchpart as is assumed other factors come in action:
Specify weather it is physical or mental stress, be specific. I will talk of mental stress:
Inside Homeostasis
When a danger finally passes or the perceived threat is over, your brain initiates a reverse course of action that releases a different bevy of biochemicals throughout your body. Attempting to bring you back into balance, your brain seeks the holy grail of “homeostasis,” that elusive state of metabolic equilibrium between the stimulating and the tranquilizing chemical forces in your body.
If either the one of the stimulating or tranquilizing chemical forces dominates the other without relief, then you will experience an on-going state of internal imbalance. This condition is known as stress. And it can have serious consequences for your brain cells. (… )

In healthy subjects, acute mental stress simultaneously activates coagulation (ie, fibrinogen or von Willebrand factor) and fibrinolysis (ie, tissue-type plasminogen activator) within a physiological range. In patients with atherosclerosis and impaired endothelial anticoagulant function, however, procoagulant responses to acute stressors may outweigh anticoagulant mechanisms and thereby promote a hypercoagulable state. Chronic psychosocial stressors (job strain or low socioeconomic status) are related to a hypercoagulable state reflected by increased procoagulant molecules (ie, fibrinogen or coagulation factor VII) and by reduced fibrinolytic capacity. There is also some evidence that points to hypercoagulability in depression.(… ).

There is good evidence to show that stress can increase a person’s heart rate, lower the immune system’s ability to fight colds and increase certain inflammatory markers but can stress also raise a person’s cholesterol? It appears so for some people, according to a new study that examines how reactions to stress over a period of time can raise a person’s lipid levels.


Hope answered your question.

Daniel asks…

Is it possible for mushrooms and fungi to grow on your body?

If you were gross enough to never wash and kept your body damp and warm, could fungi actually grow on your body?
And I mean something a bit bigger than athletes foot.

admin answers:

Only if you have a severely impaired immune system. I’ve seen pictures of late-stage AIDS patients with full-on mushrooms growing in their throats.

Your Questions About For Those About To Rock Tab

Charles asks…

What is a good classic rock song to start out with playing the guitar?

I just got an electric guitar and I want to know what easy classic rock song to play. If you can, can you provide an excellent link to that tab.

Nancy asks…

How do I get software that I download to apply onto my iTunes?

I downloaded a newer software version for free on the internet because I need it to get an application to work but now that it is done downloading I realize that I have no idea what to do to update the software on my iPod! Pleeease help if you can! I have a long roadtrip coming up Friday and I really want this game to work haha.

admin answers:

Well, first off, before you do any firmware upgrades to your iPod, be sure to perform a backup in iTunes. This is very important because if something goes wrong and you don’t backup, you could lose everything on your iPod. And since you say you downloaded the firmware from the internet, be sure you downloaded the correct firmware for your generation iPod, otherwise, the upgrade won’t work.

Now, to upgrade the firmware on your iPod manually in iTunes connect your iPod to your computer. Once your iPod is detected, go to the Summary tab (main tab) under your iPod. In WIndows, you press the RIGHT Shift key on your keyboard and click on Restore. In Mac, you press the RIGHT Alt or Ctrl key. It’s one of those two and click on Restore. So, try pressing the RIGHT Alt key then clicking Restore, if nothing happens, then hold RIGHT Ctrl key and click Restore. A window will then pop up allowing you to browse your computer to the location where you have saved your new firmware file. Open the firmware in the window and iTunes will do the rest. After the restore process your firmware will be officially upgraded and from there, when you are setting up your iPod in iTunes again, simply restore using the backup file you just made in iTunes and your iPod will be back as it was. You’ll just have to resync your music and apps is all.

Now, if your iPod was jailbroken and you had cracked apps installed, then DO NOT upgrade to 4.0.2 firmware as there is no jailbreak for that firmware yet. Don’t go any higher than 4.0.1 firmware. And if you worry about jailbreaking again for the new firmware, using the browser (Safari) on your iPod, go to this site.. Http:// and do exactly as the slider says to do…. Slide it. The jailbreak will be done right then and there for you. Now, using Cydia or Rock (you can download Rock in Cydia, by the way) just install AppSync for your firmware and your ready to sync your apps from iTunes to your iPod.

Your Questions About Carnitine

November 3, 2013

Maria asks…

If I took these three vitamins at the same time every day together, is it dangerous?

If I take Vitamin E 400 IU, L-Carnitine 500 mg, and CLA 1000 mg vitamins at the same time, what would happen?

admin answers:

Only Vitamin E is a vitamin. The others are nutritional supplements.

I see no danger in this supplemental regimen. However, I would suggest that if you are taking a Vitamin E supplement that it be the proper forms of Vitamin E, that is a complex of tocopherols and tocotrienols and NOT just alpha-tocopherol. And, never take synthetic (dl-alpha-tocopherol) vitamin E.

Best wishes and good luck.

Sandy asks…

What development do you want in a cooking oil?

like do want it to have a fiber?, L-carnitine?, longer usage.

what changes do you like given the chance to improve a cooking oil.


admin answers:

I would say longer usage, less fat and healthier :)

Michael asks…

I’m 17 & overweight. Is it okay if I take 500 mg of L-Carnitine as a food supplement?

I’m 17 & overweight. Is it okay if I take 500 mg of L-Carnitine as a food supplement?

I’ve actually been taking a capsule of 500 mg of L carnitine w/ 100 mg of green tea extract once a day. Are there any side effects from it?
I’m still seventeen years old . and Im on a diet and i exercise daily.


admin answers:

No problem. Actually, L-carnitine is supposed to work better as an aide to weight reduction when taken with raspberry ketones. It is a safe dietary supplement.

Your Questions About If You Choose To Take This Mission

November 2, 2013

George asks…

Can you select a Campaign mission on Battlefield 3?

If you would like to replay another mission or choose a separate mission to start with can you choose a different mission or do you have to replay all the missions before to get to the part you want to play?

admin answers:

Play through the whole campaign first then replay any mission you want. If you go to one now you will have to continue from that mission again to get done with the game.

Robert asks…

How does God prepare a prophet for a mission in a wicked city?

for example.

does He choose someone that has already the capacities to be a prophet in that situation?
nationality, languages, powerfulness, character, personality, experience etc.
or does He choose someone not already converted to work on him?

admin answers:

I believe God chooses according to ones natural ability towards fearlessness and passion. He did this with the prophets. He chose those that would preach his word fearlessly and passionately, even though many were what we would call sinful. They did this even though they knew it would probably end badly for them in the world of enemies. God will add the rest needed to these characteristics to accomplish His Word and work. I assume He also sees an innate goodness within the sinful nature of each. God bless.

2- bad things happening to a person that God wants to use, is that
God doing or allowing it?
i mean, God wants to use a person and a lot of bad things happened
to his ancestors and to him to make who he is.

admin answers:

By a mission, do you mean, an attempt to commit a heinous act of brutality and violence on an innocent population? If so I think “God” would choose a soulless piece of human filth.

Your Questions About For Those About To Rock

November 1, 2013

Sandy asks…

What are the two ways that rocks can undergo metamorphism ?

i want to no the two ways that rocks can undergo metamorphism

admin answers:

“Prograde” and “retrograde” are the two basic types of metamorphism (Heat and pressure are mechanisms of metamorphism, not types).

In prograde metamorphism, shallow rocks are moved to a hotter, higher-pressure environment (through burial or perhaps tectonic activity), and they respond by undergoing solid-state changes to become stable in their new environment. One major way they do this is by losing any water that made up their composition, or recrystallizing so as to be more efficient with its packing of atoms (read: more dense).

In retrograde metamorphism, rocks that are formed at depth are moved towards the surface, where temperatures and pressures are much lower than where they originally formed. A great example of this is a diamond, which forms deep in the earth at high temperatures and pressures. At the surface, they are considered metastable, which means given enough time they will turn into graphite – the form of carbon that is more stable in low-temperature, low-pressure environments.

So, next time you hear a diamond commercial saying “a diamond is forever,” you know it’s a lie.

The whole point of metamorphism is environment and stability. When environments change, a rock may no longer be stable, and must undergo metamorphism in order to once again achieve a stable state. For an example, high-pressure environments favor dense crystal structures, and low-pressure environments are the opposite.

Remember though, that these changes are all occurring in the solid state. If the temperatures and pressures get too high and the rock melts, then the rock that forms again from that melt is igneous in origin, not metamorphic. Once the rock melts, the cycle of metamorphism is over, and it starts its life again as an igneous rock.

Hope that helps… See the link for more information.

James asks…

Are the crystals and stones you buy in those little bags real?

I have two different bags of those rocks and crystals you find at campground souvenir stores, and I was just wondering if they’re real. I started a collection of rocks, crystals and shells recently, and I don’t want to include those unless they’re real. Thanks!

admin answers:

Yes, they are put in a tumbler. The tumbler makes them look all shiny and fancy like. I love those rocks! I have one and on it looks like it has a dolphin jumping in the sunset, it’s really cool.
