Blessed Mother Mary - Quotes From The Saints
St. Cajetan was the first to introduce the Forty Hours' Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, as an antidote to the heresy of Calvin. He had a most tender love for our Blessed Lady, and his piety was rewarded; for one Christmas eve she placed the Infant Jesus in his arms. When the Germans, under the Constable Bourbon, sacked Rome, St. Cajetan was barbarously scourged, to extort from him riches which he had long before securely stored in heaven. When St. Cajetan was on his death-bed, resigned to the will of God, eager for pain to satisfy his love, and for death to attain to life, he beheld the Mother of God, radiant with splendor and surrounded by ministering seraphim. In profound veneration, he said, "Lady, bless me! Mary replied, " Cajetan, receive the blessing of my Son, and know that I am here as a reward for the sincerity of your love, and to lead you to paradise." She then exhorted him to patience in fighting an evil spirit who troubled him, ....." ... to this article...
Blood Brain Barrier
Capillary blood vessels in the body are not hermetically sealed and chemicals in the blood can leak out into the surrounding tissue (and vice versa).
This is not the case in the brain, where such general leakage would disrupt message transmission. There is thus a blood-brain barrier where capillary cell walls are more tightly joined together.
There is some transmission through the walls, though this is carefully managed and the walls are selectively permeable. If nothing from the blood could escape, then it would serve no purpose. For example glucose transporters that bring fuel for the brain are allowed through.
The blood-brain barrier is also weaker in the area postrema in the medulla, where vomiting is managed. In this way toxins in the blood can be monitored and the vomit reaction triggered as needed.

"... What You Don't Know About
Silent Inflammation In The Human Body
Can Harm You
The first question you must be asking is, "What the heck is silent inflammation in the human body, anyways?"
The answer is simple.
Barry Sears Ph.D. says it best in his groundbreaking book, The Anti-Inflammation Zone, "Silent inflammation is simply inflammation that falls below the threshold of perceived pain."
Since virtually all pain is due to inflammation, it is particularly dangerous when that inflammation in the human body is stealth enough that it does not cause pain.
Because silent inflammation in the human body mostly means silent damage.
When your body is being damaged cell by cell and you don't even know it, that is, to say the least, not a good thing!

What makes an exercise Neurobic? Throughout the course of every day, your brain is activated by your senses, and you encounter new stimuli all the time. Why aren't these Neurobic activities? What is it about the specific things we suggest that makes them neurobic?
|Exercise # 3 Brushing Roulette
Chapter IV ... Starting and Ending the Day
|illustrated by David Suter ©1999|
To begin with, not everything that's novel or new provides the kind or strength of nerve cell stimulation that is necessary to activate new brain circuits and enhance neurotrophin production. For example, if you normally write with a pen and one day choose to write everything in pencil, you've broken your routine and are doing something new. So, in some small way, you've changed the patterns of activity in the parts of your brain activated by touching. But such a small change wouldn't recruit new sensory associations important enough to engage the circuitry required to really exercise your brain.
Contrast this with deciding one day to change the hand you normally write with. If you are right handed, controlling a pen is normally the responsibility of the cortex on the left side of your brain. When you change ..." ....to this page...

Begin A Healthier Lifestyle
"...Starting a healthy lifestyle may seem
daunting, but with planning and commitment,
you can be successful. Perhaps you are
motivated to make the change due to a
medical issue; maybe you don't like the excess
weight you're carrying or you want to set a
good example for your children. Whatever the
reason, be honest with yourself, make a plan,
then take it one day at a time.
Analyze what you need to change. Make a
detailed list. If you're overweight, note how
many pounds you need to lose and whether
you are a couch potato. If you use tobacco, list
what and how much. If you want to eat better,
analyze what you need to change about your
diet. If you use recreational drugs or abuse
alcohol, list what and how often.
