Car Air Purifier Reviews – Plug ‘n Play Car Ionizers

I’m sure you have recoiled in horror when the car in front of you belches out a cloud of smoke, and you immediately close the windows and turn off the fan/air conditioning. All the pollution you don’t see, the construction work and dusty roads – and smokers that light up inside the car lead to very poor air quality in a confined area making driving an assualt on your health. But… there is a solution – a car air purifier/ionizer or ionic car . A car air purifier can help to remove some of the harmful particles from the air inside the car. This is particularly important for drivers in inner cities who tend to sit in queues of traffic congestion for long periods of time and for drivers suffering from asthma or allergies. There are many different types of car air purifier, but research has proven that placement in the car makes no difference to its effectiveness. They are quiet and unobtrusive and work simply by plugging them into your car cigarette lighter.

Training Systems for a New Generation

Work by scientists like Professor Jamie Timmons (University of Birmingham) has been changing the way we see exercise and its role in health promotion in weight loss. We are now at the stage where we can totally reject the idea that plodding away on the treadmill “burns calories”. Instead, we have a new sense that the body is an active biological system that can be impacted only by certain types of exercise behaviours. To change the intricate chain of hormonal messages that controls our metabolism and body fat stores we need to engage in high intensity interval training- bursts of frenetic work interspersed with short recovery periods. This is the kind of work that seems to leave an “imprint” in our bodies’ weight management systems. Bouts of only a few seconds have been shown to create a powerful impact on our fitness levels and activate particular genes which are vital to fat loss. Here at MotivatingMax.com we have been experimenting with high-intensity interval work over the last three years and, in particular, resistance training which also has a truly prominent effect on our hormonal secretions and metabolism in the hours after we leave the gym. There is a price to pay of course in that, while high intensity work may not take that long, it is extremely strenuous. For people who have low initial levels of fitness, are overweight, or experiencing metabolic health deficits such as diabetes of heart disease then considerable caution should be applied when building up work intensity. Many individuals may need coaching from an established instructor or motivational support from friends or media to “push them over the line”. Despite this, our over-riding message is that- it can be done. To achieve our own body shape and health goals we need to take a measured, detailed, and serious approach to our exercise. We explain my...

The death knell for dieting

A whole series of scientific papers over the past two years is shining a light on a rather devastating truth: The old notion of “a calorie in, a calorie out” is complete nonsense. It is a rather crude perspective which can describe the energy balance in a machine but not the complex workings of a biological system like the human body! Nutritional researchers are now sure that the amount of fat we store is based on a chain of complex hormonal signals controlled largely in the hypothalamus- the “switching centre” of our brains. This will all come as no surprise to those who have slaved away on unappealing diets and worked themselves into the ground at their local gym only to lose a meagre amount of weight- and then put it all back on! Professor Sven Enerbäck, of the University of Gothenburg, explains more in his 2011 paper (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22649390) “Current therapeutic approaches, relying mainly on reduced energy intake and/or increased exercise energy expenditure, are generally of limited effectiveness.” If the world’s leading nutritional scientists, who normally take a very cautious approach, are speaking out against the old misplaced beliefs then we should take notice of them. It’s easy to see why the diet / exercise myth has endured so long, on the surface of it, it makes perfect sense and, more importantly, it allows all sorts of charlatans and self-appointed diet gurus to sell us products! So that’s the reason Max and the other experts at MotivatingMax.com have been building up a weight loss approach based on the latest scientific evidence: New Advances in Weight...

Don’t Go To Sleep Angry!

Why we shouldn’t go to sleep angry: I am sure you have been told at some stage in your life to “never to sleep on your troubles.” In fact, the idea that we do ourselves no benefit by trying to sleep when we are in emotional torment is nothing new- there are mentions of it in the Bible. More recently, researchers have found that there might be some truth in the old saying. A study published in the Journal of Neuroscience has shown that going to sleep after experiencing negative emotions reinforces or “preserves” them. In the study, researchers recruited 106 adults and exposed them to images that provoked various emotions, some negative (for example an accident), some positive and some neutral. The scientists then tested what happened when the subjects were shown new images or the old ones again 12 hours later. This second measurement took place either in the morning after a night of sleep, or at the end of a full day of wakefulness. They also measured brain activity during the rapid eye movement, or REM, phase of sleep, when dreams occur. Staying awake blunted the emotional response to seeing the upsetting images again. But when subjects were shown the disturbing images after a night of sleep, their response was just as strong as when they had first seen them. Conclusion The conclusion was that the sleep in some way “protected” the negative emotional responses. Researchers in the field of evolutionary psychology have suggested that sleep serves to enhance emotional memories. That may be why that many people have trouble sleeping after an unsettling experience – so as to prevent the emotions connected from the experience of being reinforced. The results of the experiment teach us that we should devote the time leading up to sleep towards positive activities such as mediation, or watching comedy programmes...

Link Between Wellbeing and Exercise Proven

A medical research study has shown that as little as 20 minutes of exercise, three days per week for six months will increase your general feeling of happiness by 10-20%. The measurements used were questionnaire assessments of life-contentment and wellbeing which the participants completed themselves at the beginning and end of the exercise trials. The results were attributed to a number of factors including improved health, improved self-esteem, improved physical appearance, satisfaction with the achievements experienced, and the release of endorphins into the blood-stream which occurs towards the end of an exercise session (the so called “runner’s high”). The mood-altering effects of exercise were not actually proven until 2008 when Dr Henning Boecker (University of Bonn) was able to use chemical markers and PET scans to show for the first time that endorphins released during exercise were present in areas of the brain associated with mood alterations, the limbic and prefrontal regions in particular. These brain areas have been associated with the response to moving music and even with the first stages of romantic love. The ten distance runners involved, who ran for two hours each, also reported a sense of euphoria which varied in line with the amount of endorphins that Dr Boecker detected. The next wave of research from Bonn will investigate the possibility that endurance exercise numbs our pain receptors; which would seem to explain the expression “running through the pain”. If you needed another reason to jump on the treadmill or run down the towpath- you now have it!  Wellbeing and exercise go hand in hand...

Energy Healing: Pranic, Tantric, and Reiki explained

You may well have encountered exotic terms such as “chakra”, “prana”, “aura”, and “tantra” in the course of your reading on spirituality, healing, and sexuality. This article is about demystifying the vocabulary around spiritual and energy healing and, in so doing, giving us a better foundation for understanding. Chakra and Aura in Pranic healing In Sanskrit Chakra means energy centre. It is a term used in the ancient Hindu system of Pranic healing. Pranic itself comes from Prana, which means “life energy”. The term Aura, which has crossed over into our western lexicon, can also be traced to Pranic healing. In its original meaning, one’s Aura is a body which consists of spiritual energy and exists in tandem with the physical body. The aura that permeates the body is said to have seven layers pertaining to the physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual dimensions of an individual. Six colours are associated with auras and each is associated with a specific character or personality type. While these colours are believed to be present in every individual, we all have a leaning towards one or two in particular: Green – ambitious achiever Blue – spiritual peacemaker White – unconventional chameleon Red – activist Orange – creative communicaton  Violet – psychic Tantra Although the term Tantra is popularly associated with the practice of tantric sex, it is in fact a method of energy healing. Tantra derives from the Sanskrit word “tan” which means to spread or expand. The concept of connectedness is a recurring theme in Tantric writings on sex and spirituality. It is presupposed that the union of man and woman can take on spiritual dimensions during orgasm, which purify the body and mind of collected impurities. It is thought that these impurities are constituted of negative energies which can manifest as physical illnesses. Reiki Unlike Pranic and Tantric healing, which have...
