It's Called Mindset!!!!!!

As my friend was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at any time, break away from the ropes they were tied to but for some reason, they did not. My friend saw a trainer nearby and asked why these beautiful, magnificent animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away. "Well," he said, "when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and, at that age, it's enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free. My friend was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn't, they were stuck right where they were.
Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before? So make an attempt to grow further.... Why shouldn't we try it again? "YOUR ATTEMPT MAY FAIL, BUT NEVER FAIL TO MAKE AN ATTEMPT."

My friend won't go to the circus because of the cruel training elephants are subjected to. She doesn't realize that she has been subjected to the same cruel conditioning through her parents and society in general and that she too can step away from it. Instead she blames everyone else for her misery. She was never physically abused, however, being conditioned is also abuse.

I simply love it, yes this is right, its only in the mind, at first I never thought I could not reach the ring because I am only 5"7 but things change when I trained myself and believe that everything is possible now I can reach any ring that I want.

台灣威而鋼記者報導』

骨質疏鬆症是無聲無息的隱形殺手,許多人因骨折才發現自己罹患骨鬆,甚至出現嚴重的髖部骨折而喪失性命。

醫師指出,女性停經後荷爾蒙會快速下降,導致蝕骨細胞數量增加,造成骨本快速流失。

就容易罹患骨鬆,建議停經後婦女應至醫院進行骨質密度檢測,評估是否需要藥物治療。

骨科醫師楊再興表示,骨質疏鬆症是高血壓、糖尿病、高血脂等3高疾病之外的第4大慢性疾病。

不過,有別於3高疾病,身體會出現明顯的不適反應,罹患骨鬆的患者身體通常沒有任何異狀,直到發生骨折才意識問題的嚴重性。

楊再興指出,45至55歲的女性停經後,荷爾蒙會快速下降,導致蝕骨細胞數量增加。

造成骨本快速流失,1年內會流失3至5%,5年內至少流失20至30%,若骨本不夠很快就會面臨骨折的危機。

男性發生骨鬆則是因老化問題,平均發生年齡為75歲。

如何預防骨鬆?楊再興建議,停經後婦女及年滿65歲的男性,應至醫院進行骨質密度檢測。

檢測部位包括兩邊髖關節、脊髓共3個部位,需自費1200至1500元,若有經濟上的考量。

年輕人可檢測脊髓,老人則檢測髖關節部位,評估是否需要藥物治療,若確診可透過荷爾蒙、副甲狀腺素,或雙磷酸鹽等藥物治療。
壯陽藥
楊再興強調,要避免骨鬆,無論男女從青春期就要開始存骨本,包括增加鈣、鎂攝取、多曬太陽。

以及負重運動,如舉重、步行、慢跑、爬樓梯等,可促進骨質密度增加,老年人則可從事水中運動,降低關節受傷機率。
