Heart Health vs. Holistic Health

It’s often said that a certain food or vitamin is “good for the heart” or “good for the eyes”, and while this is partly true, it’s also highly necessary to understand that what is good for your heart, is good for the entire body. Your heart does not exist separate from the rest of the body. Your circulatory system doesn’t exist separate from the rest of the body’s systems. Every single system in your body is intricately woven into every other one.

If you took out your heart, what would happen? The entire body dies, of course. What happens if you take out the brain? Again, the whole body dies. Of course, sometimes we have certain particular body parts removed surgically, and the body is able to continue functioning, but nobody can deny that the absence of that part doesn’t affect the way the body as a whole functions.

Your circulatory system isn’t “over here”, while your respiratory system, endocrine system, or brain is “over there”. They are not isolated from each other. They are not two or three. They are one. Every system, every cell, every function, every movement, every thought, and every emotion, is part of a whole body. Ultimately, not a single cell in your body exists separately from any other. What affects one, affects the whole.

Your brain requires blood, oxygen, and nutrients for optimal performance, and your heart needs nutrients, energy, positive peaceful emotions, and a stable mind in order to be optimally healthy. What affects one system, affects all systems. What affects one cell, affects the body as a whole.

Because your brain doesn’t exist separate from your heart, or from any other system, your thoughts, emotions, attitudes, perceptions, and opinions affect the body’s overall state of health just as much as anything else, if not more so. The “placebo effect” and “nocebo effect” is in fact, in effect 100% of the time. The placebo effect is that which is positive, healthy, peaceful, beneficial, truthful, and works in our favor. The nocebo effect is that which is negative, unhealthy, stressful, false, and works against us.

No one part of your body can be successfully healed, or “cured”, without taking care of the body/mind as a whole. Thus, the practice of “holistic health”, which has far greater success rates at reversing degenerative diseases than the common mainstream approaches. Traditional western medicine is often reductionist, only focusing on isolated individual systems, and that is precisely its limitation. Mainstream western medicine very often doesn’t take into account the nutrients that we provide our cells, or the emotional aspects of the brain’s workings.

Some of the more enlightened doctors and scientists who are aware of this however, even estimate that up to 90% of all health issues and diseases are at least somewhat, if not significantly, the result of stressful negative mentalities. They understand that negative emotions and attitudes are stressful on our body and cells because they increase blood pressure levels, overload the adrenal glands, restrict oxygen flow, and more. They also realize that when we eat an unhealthy food, that affects our entire mind and body as a whole in a stressful negative manner. When we eat a life sustaining healthy food, that uplifts and heals the entire mind/body.

Because all the systems of the body are one, and because the body has many needs for its many functions, we need a diet with an all-encompassing range of nutrients. That is, we need to give it the whole gamut of required tools. The all-encompassing health benefits that people receive as a result of doing this, are of course, absolutely incredible. I can’t recommend highly enough, that you too, incorporate this information into your daily health routine.

To sum it up, a person’s state of overall physical and mental health is a perfect reflection of their dietary habits, their emotional well-being, their level of awareness/truth, their environmental influences, and their choices. And since all of these come down to choice, nobody can save us, heal us, or cure us, except ourselves. Neither I, or a doctor, can change you. Only you can change yourself.

Don’t get taken for a ride when you need a new saddle

Buying quality tack for your horse can be a big investment, depending on the type of equipment that you need. If you are looking to get stared in horse riding and do not have experience of buying tack then you might not know exactly the type of gear you need and what will suit your riding style.

When it comes to buying a saddle, there is a massive choice of styles out there on the market, which can make the process even more complicated. Walk into a shop or browse the stock of an online retailer and you may well be confronted with English saddles, Australian saddles, Western saddles, and sidesaddles. There is a huge variety available and getting the right one for you can seem a bit daunting.

However, no matter how difficult the initial choice may seem, it is vital that you pick the right saddle for your needs. Buying a poor quality piece of equipment not only means that you will probably have to replace it before too long, but it can also cause problems for you and your animal.

Safety has to be a major consideration in horse riding and part of that means ensuring a comfortable ride for both yourself and the horse. An ill fitting saddle for example will probably mean a poor riding experience for you and could cause your animal discomfort, and in the worst case scenario lead to injuries.

Owning a horse is often an expensive business and one thing you definitely don’t want to be doing is spending money unnecessarily. Buying poor quality tack, or even the wrong equipment, can be a costly mistake and is something you want to avoid at all costs. The simplest way to avoid this situation is to get advice from professionals, and plenty of it.

Talk to as many people as you can. Some will have their own preferences and biases and so the more people you speak to, the more varied the advice and the better chance you will have of coming to an informed decision. Take your time and don’t jump straight in if you are not 100 per cent sure what you are looking for.

Make the right decision when it is time to buy horse equipment such as horse saddles. Find an expert company with staff who will talk you through the purchase and be happy to offer advice on what equipment will suit your needs.

Craig’s 2009 NBA Western Conference Championship Odds Breakdown and preview

Finally, the NBA Playoffs are upon us. Not a minute too soon. Craig Trapp from CT Sports Picks is hot, as his NBA Plays have gone 10-2 in the last 10 days. Today, Craig will break down the odds of making the Conference Finals for each Western Conference Playoff squad. There’s some great value to be had here if you can get past the huge favorite Los Angeles Lakers. If you missed Craig’s article breaking down the Eastern Conference odds, make sure you check it out also! 

Los Angeles Lakers: -400

This team has all the weapons that any coach would want to win a championship. The West Title will go through L.A. But let’s throw them out for any future, since there is no betting value.

Denver Nuggets: +800

Yes, you read it correctly: The Nuggets have 8:1 odds to win the Western Conference Championship. Do not sleep on a very deep Denver team that can score at will against any team including the Lakers. By the way, they are one of the few teams to win at L.A. this season. They’re the best option to beat the Lakers in the WCF; Chauncey Billups has won a championship and could carry this team a very long way.

Utah Jazz: +800

Not sure what oddsmakers are thinking with this team. They’re the eight-seed and will face Kobe and Lakers first round.  The Jazz can’t win on the road and has no way to beat L.A.

Houston Rockets: +800

And here’s another perplexing future odds. If this team could play every game at home, they might have a chance, but they can’t go to L.A. or Denver and win consistently. Would have been interesting bet with Tracy McGrady, but his injury makes this team an afterthought.

Portland Trail Blazers: +1000

The Blazers have been very hot late in the season, even away from home. Plus, they’ve got the second-best player in the West, Brandon Roy. This club could give the Lakers a very tough series in the second round. Too bad they couldn’t play their way to the three-seed so as to stay away from L.A. until the finals.  Kobe & Co. are too experienced, but the Blazers are interesting at 10-to-1. 

San Antonio Spurs: +1000

These past champions will go down swinging, but without Ginobili (due to injury), this team will lose in one of the first two rounds. 

New Orleans Hornets: +1300

Chris Paul is playing at an elite level, but the rest of his team has not picked up their game. The Hornets would need a triple-double every game from CP3 to have any chance. Don’t be surprised if they get swept in first round of Western Conference Playoffs. These future odds should be more like 20-to-1.

Dallas Mavericks: +2500

The odds say it all. This team just can’t stop anyone consistently on defense.  The Western Conference Championship will most likely be won by one of three teams: the Los Angeles Lakers, Denver Nuggets, or Portland Trail Blazers. But there’s no way you can bet the favored Lakers, so either take a swing with one of the two longshots!

Choosing a Horse Discipline

If you have just started riding, you may just be happy to be on a horse. But, eventually you will probably want to specialize your riding. To do this, you need to understand the different disciplines of riding, and decide which best suits your interests.

To begin with, there are two basic types of riding: English and Western. English riders ride in a small saddle which gives the rider a lot of contact with the horses. If you are interested in jumping, you would need to learn to ride English. Western riders ride in a large saddle with a horn at the front. If you are interested in the types of events you see at rodeos, you would need to learn to ride Western.

In English riding there are several disciplines. Each discipline has its own pros and cons, but fortunately, many are interchangeable if you decide to switch later in life. Here are some of the most common English disciplines:

* Hunter – Hunter riders ride their horses over fences in the show ring. The horses are judged for how nice and smooth their rounds are, and for how well they jump the jumps. Generally the jumps are not excessively high and the courses are easy to learn.

* Jumper – Jumpers are the speed events of the jumping world. The jumps are bigger and brighter than hunter jumps and the horses are judged on how quickly and cleanly they can jump the jumps.

* Dressage – When riding dressage, you strive to perfect your riding so that you and the horse become as one. You ask the horse to perform a variety of paces and movements around the ring according to a test that you memorize. There is no jumping in dressage.

* Eventing – An event rider not only must be good at dressage, but must also manage the jumper ring. Additionally, the horses and riders must compete over a cross-country course of obstacles.

* The Hunt – Field hunting is quite different than riding a show hunter. Field hunters follow the hounds to chase fox across the countryside. Usually riders join a hunt club and participate in hunts with that club.

* Pleasure Riding – There is riding for pleasure, and pleasure riding for show. Some breeds are very competitive in the English pleasure ring. Many pleasure riders, though, only ride horses for their own enjoyment, hacking along roads or fields rather than worrying about competition.

* Saddle Seat – Saddle seat riding is generally limited to specific breeds, but can be quite popular. The horses are trained to step lively and show off their gaits while the rider sits upright, working the horse in the classic, old Park style.

Western riding also has a range of disciplines.

* Pleasure – This is what many people think of when they think of a Western rider. A Pleasure rider can be a show rider, or just someone who rides for their enjoyment. Western pleasure is very competitive, and requires a specific type of horse and way of going.

* Reining – Reining is the Western equivalent of dressage. Horses are required to do movements such as sliding stops and roll backs. A well trained reining pair can be fascinating to watch.

* Working Cattle – There are a range of Western events that specifically work with cattle. Cutting and Team Penning are some of the more popular events.

* Gaming – One of the most fun Western disciplines is gaming. Many gaming horses are specialists, and work best at their specific events. Some popular Western games include barrel racing, pole bending and the keyhole race.

* Competitive Trail – Competitive trail has horses working through trail classes where horses negotiate a series of obstacles to complete their course.

Another discipline that is not English or Western is Endurance riding. Endurance riders use whatever tack is most comfortable for the purpose to take their horses on long treks across the countryside. It can be highly competitive, and is tons of fun at the lower levels for riders of all kinds.

No matter what discipline you choose, be aware that you can always learn a new one later in life. All disciplines take time and effort to learn, and all have their loyal followers. Take your time and try anything that interests you. Nothing prevents you from enjoying them all, if you have the time and the interest.

Methods To Buy A Western Saddle For Your Child

When picking the right western saddle for any child there are numerous choices to make. A great many children develop a fascination and love for horses at an early age. Who knows why. It is just a inescapable fact. Children are usually entirely unafraid and mesmerized by these large, gentle animals. This particular relationship is one that will last a life time. That old saying that “horses come between toys and boys” for girls may perhaps be many parents wishful thinking.

Children frequently start riding the moment they are able to sit up by themselves in a saddle. The saddle is easily the most costly piece of equipment you will purchase after buying the horse or pony. The saddle will need to fit the horse as well as the child. It is best to have the horse or pony your child is going to be riding before getting the saddle. A good quality saddle lasts for very many years. However, a child can quickly grow out of a small saddle. Keeping this in mind, you need to decide how much money you are able to invest in a saddle. If there are several children in the family that will be using the saddle may help ease the financial pain.

A number of factors to take into consideration prior to you buying your saddle are:

1. Leather of excellent quality will last a very long time. Watch out for poor quality of leather.

2. Artificial (man made materials) includes canvas cloth, cordura or neoprene among other types of materials. Synthetic saddles are generally lightweight saddles and come in a variety of bright colours.

3. Used or new.

4. Style of Saddle. Will this saddle be used for pleasure or shows.

5. Cost – Amount of cash you want to spend.

One feature which is extremely important when looking for a western saddle for your child would be the height of the cantle. The actual cantle is the raised rear section of the saddle seat. The taller the actual cantle, the deeper the seat, the better with regard to aiding the child stay seated in the saddle. Choose a 5″ cantle height. Barrel racing style western saddles will often have deeper seats. You’ll find normally a more substantial selection of small child size saddles any time looking at the barrel style western saddles.

In order to measure the western saddle, take a ruler or tape and measure from the back of the swell-pommel, just underneath the horn base and move straight across the seat towards the inner rim of the cantle. Western saddles that can sometimes be used on a horse or even pony may be as small as 7″ and as large as 20″.

Below is a general Western saddle size guideline.

7″ to 8″ for the Very Small Child, Toddler under 3 years

10″ for an Average Size Small Child, 3-6 years old

12″ for an Average Size child, 7-10 years old

13″ for an average Youth size or large child

14″ for a Small Adult size

15″ for an Average Adult size

16″ to 20″ for Larger Adults

A number of small riders have a difficult time reaching the stirrups. All of the leather, padding and skirts on Western saddles make it more difficult to raise the stirrups short enough for little, short legs to reach them. Measuring the child’s inseam gives you an idea of just how short you need the stirrups to go. On the saddle, measure from the center of the seat right down to the place that the foot rests within the stirrups when the stirrups are pulled up as high as they’ll go.

A common rule of thumb for the 10″ western saddle is 20″ at the shortest. Any shorter and the stirrups have difficulty turning and so the child’s toes are pointed forward. The 12″ western saddle stirrup length is generally 22″ at the shortest. There are numerous different “stirrup helpers” readily available. These consist of nylon webbing with stirrups attached. The nylon webbing normally wraps around the saddle horn and the stirrups can be adjusted to fit the shorter legs.

By using good care and maintenance, a saddle can last for many years. The Western saddle’s design and style as well as fit might have a big affect on both the horse’s overall performance as well as the rider’s position and comfort. An ill fitting saddle may cause the horse considerable discomfort and also physical damage. The perfect situation is if you can try out the saddle for a couple of days. Check it fits your child as well as the horse or pony it’ll be used on prior to making ones final decision.

Horse Breeds – American Quarter Horse

The American Quarter Horse is the first breed of horse native to the United States. The breed evolved when the bloodlines of horses brought to the New World were mixed. Foundation American Quarter Horse stock originated from Arab, Turk and Barb breeds. Selected Stallions and Mares were crossed with horses brought to Colonial America from England and Ireland in the 1600’s. This combination resulted in a compact, heavily muscled horse that evolved to fill the colonists passion for short distance racing.

The amazing power behind a quarter horse enabled this great animal to run short distances over a straightaway faster than any other horse with the fastest being named Celebrated American Running Horse. The names for this breed has changed many times over the years until 1940 when a registry was formed to preserve the breed which officially became the American Quarter Horse Association.

In the year 1674 in Enrico County, Virginia the first American Quarter Horse Race was held. They were one-on-one match races down village streets, county lanes and level pastures. Many disagreements and fights were generated from heavy betting of large purse races by 1690.

The American Quarter Horse, due to their calm disposition and quick response time, the horse became known for its “cow sense”, being able to outmaneuver cattle. During the 1800’s as many pioneer folk moved westward, so did the American Quarter Horse. An abundant amount of cattle ranches stretched across the plains. Making this breed well suited for the cattle ranchers.

In today’s world, the American Quarter Horse still remains a great sprinter known for their heavy muscling, but they have exceeded way past the cattle horse. These amazing horses compete in almost every discipline available, from rodeo events, such as barrel racing and calf roping to English disciplines such as dressage and show jumping. The make a nice little children’s hunter as well, with the ability to jump a wide range of heights. They are one of the most versatile breeds in the world.

Many pleasure riders still look to the American Quarter horse for recreational riding, as they make a nice pleasure horse as well.

Breeders, since the creation of the breed over fifty years ago, have diligently been trying to perfect the bloodlines to produce a high quality versatile animal.. Strict guidelines have been set by the American Quarter Horse Association regarding registration of the American Quarter Horses. Some of these guidelines include:
1. Limited white markings on the face and below the knee
2. Only thirteen accepted colors recognized by the AQHA. These are sorrel (reddish brown), bay, black, brown, buckskin, chestnut, dun, red dun, gray, grullo, palomino, red roan and blue roan. The official gray color is what most people call white, but there are no “white” American Quarter Horses.
3. A quarter horse foal must be the product of a numbered American Quarter Horse dam and a numbered American Quarter Horse sire. There is an appendiz registry for foals with one numbered American Quarter Horse parent and one Throughbred parent registered with The Jockey Club.

Some other notable characteristics of the American Quarter Horse is their speed, versatility, gentle nature, heavy muscling and keen cow sense.

If you own an American Quarter Horse, no matter what discipline you choose to ride, your horse will excel. This breed is one of the most enjoyable horse breeds around today and one of the most popular.

Watch The Detroit Tigers Online

Watch the Detroit Tigers online this new season. It’s easy when you use this great software I found that grants access to all the season’s televised games. This is the franchise’s 110th season having been one of the original charter clubs for the Western Division of the American League.

There’s a lot new in store to watch this season for Tiger fans. A great deal of off-season trade activity has brought new faces, and talent, to the Motor City. The Tigers were involved on a three-team deal that sent Curtis Granderson to the Yankees and Edwin Jackson to the Diamondbacks in return for Austin Jackson and Phil Coke from the New York. They also got Max Scherez and Daniel Schlereth from Arizona. The Tigers released Placido Plolanco and Fernando Rodney. However, they managed some key signings including a five-year deal for ace Justin Verlander while inking both All-Star closer Jose Valverde and a two-time World Champion in Johnny Damon.

After Spring Training, the Tigers opened on the road April 5 in Kansas City with an 8-4 win. The Tigers also won their home opener against Cleveland, April 9, 5-2. It’s great to be able to watch the Motown Marauders whenever on the road because I decided to get this software that will benefit you, too.

You can easily download it from the Internet and then easily install it on your computer. Your ticket to nine-innings of absolute American traditional sports entertainment will be a high-speed Internet connection from either DSL or cable to view live streaming video online. And, installed on a laptop computer you now have a mobile window catching any televised Detroit Tigers game wherever you happen to be when taking it along with you for the ride.

This is a great benefit for many people who are always on the go and may not be able to be at home when their favorite team is playing.

how would i put these on?

http://www.horse.com/Cordura-Western-Cinch-with-Felt-Lining-WGB10.html

if where this is supposed to go there is no buckle, just the straps, and no loop hole thing to put the extra leather/

so, in general, how would i put one of these on my western saddle?

What Justa C said. I’ve never used the buckle holes for a western cinch. I just don’t trust it. She gave you an excellent picture tutorial to follow.

Thailand Travel Tips and Customs

After living in Bangkok for over a year I have learned many things about the Thai People that I wanted to share with other foreigners living or vacationing here should know. The first thing you have to accept is that eastern culture is different. The people in the east are less emotional and more polite and while they know westerners are different, they often are uncomfortable when we stray from their norms. The things I found to be important are listed below in order of importance:

Be Polite – Thai people hold being polite above all else. Their very language has politeness built into it. If you follow what is considered “common courtesy” you will be fine.

Thai King – The Thai People Love their King, King Rama IX. Never show any type of disrespect to him or the Royal family. The Thai people have a deep traditional reverence for the Royal Family, and the visitor should also show respect for the King and the Queen, and the Royal Children. When attending a public events where a member of the Royal Family is present, the best guide on how to behave is to watch the crowd and do as it does.

Safety – Stealth crimes, such as pick pocketing, are the most common problem so it’s worth keeping a close eye on your belongings at all times and being aware of the people around you. Unprovoked violence against tourists are very rare, but it pays to exercise common sense.

National Religion – Buddhism is Thailand’s national Religion with nearly 95% of Thailand’s population being Buddhist. All Buddha images are considered sacred and there are laws against removing these images for anything other that personal worship.

Buddhist Monks – Buddhist Monks are recognized quickly by their shaved heads, bear feet and bright orange robes. It is forbidden for women to touch Buddhist Monks, this includes a woman handing something to a Monk, The items should be first given to a man, who hands the item to the monk. Also, western men should never attempt to shake hands with a monk.

Buddhist Temple – Wearing shoes around a temple is acceptable but they should be removed when entering their church (the area where the Buddha image is kept).

Be Quiet – Loud people are considered impolite. Speak softly and do not laugh loudly. Of course there are the common places such as bars, celebrations and parks that being loud is appropriate and expected.

Greetings – Greetings in Thailand can be quite formal in appearance to the western eye. The basic gesture is to put hands together, fingers up, with a slight bow of the head. The words “saw dee (krup)” (or “kaw” for women) are spoken during fm bow. It is more complicated for Thai people, with three levels based on age and position but westerners attempting this greeting are not expected to understand. (levels: 1. Monk, thumbs touching forehead durin bow; 2. Same age or older, thumbs touching lips; and 3. Younger person, thumbs touching chin.)

Food – Food in Thailand is customarily HOT, spicy HOT. Most westerners can not handle the amount of chili spice that Thai people enjoy. For the westerner visiting foreigner, the best tip i can give them is how to ask to make the food less spicy. There are two phrases to be used based on you preference: 1) “mai ped” – not spicy and 2) “ped nit noi” – a little bit spicy. The food is awesome in Thailand and this tip should help you enjoy it even more. In the near future I will be publishing a description of my favorite foods. Stay tuned.

Street Food – There is an old Thai saying “a little bit of dirt makes the food a little bit more delicious (rough translation). For westerners, buying food on the street can impact your health with the possible contraction of various gastro digestive problems. While most street food vendors are clean, this only by local standards. I live by “rule of thumb” which has served well living in Bangkok. This rule is simple but you need to stick to it. It is “only eat from the street what is cooked in front of you”. This ensures that the food is fully cooked one more time before you eat it. Unfortunately, this eliminates a lot of food served on the street but better safe than sorry for week.

Body Odor – Thai people almost never smell badly and they find it offensive if others do.

Crowds – if you go to areas in Thailand during Thai holidays and celebrations, be prepared to encounter many people. To Western experience the volume of these areas can be incredible. Be prepared to be pushed and shoved and be aware that they mean no harm. There sence of personal space is quite different than westerners.

Watch where you walk – The sidewalks in Bangkok are uneven and full of obstacles, pay attention. Oh, also, the streets have many stray dogs; the dogs are not aggressive but do leave landmines on the sidewalks.

Taxi Drivers – Most taxi drivers are fine. Generally, it is always better to use the metered taxis. Tuktuks are always more expensive and with Bangkok traffic you could be breathing in a lot of smog on the way. If you are going a significant distance negotiate… Also, the Taxis marked “We love farang, we speak English”, well most of them do not. They do have a radio that has a person that knows a little English.

Movie Theater – After the advertising and right before the movie a tribute to the Thai King Comes on and everyone stands in respect.

Driving in Thailand – If you are a brave one and decide that you want drive yourself around Thailand, don’t be too worried, it really isn’t that bad. There are just several things to understand. Drivers use the left side instead of the right, like in the US, and the roads tend to be narrower than in the US. So driving next to a bus or a truck can be a little intimidating.

Toilets – Eastern toilets can be quite intimidating to the western traveler as well. Be aware that eastern toilets are little more than holes in the ground surrounded by ceramic and involve water, not paper, for cleaning. To be honest, I still have not gotten used this type of facility to its full extent. Also, there are often women in the men’s room, stationed there for cleaning. It can be quite unnerving when you first experience this but they are not there for any more than cleaning.

Following these tips will allow you to have better understanding of the Thai people and more fun in your stay in Bangkok, allowing the locals to be more comfortable with you and give you a better understanding of how things function in Thailand.
