Bed Bugs

Artarmon Thai Massage

A decent night’s sleep is essential to our healthy. There are many factors that can disrupt our sleep, leading to constant daytime tiredness, poor thinking, absent mindedness, poor health and a compromised immune system. If we can remove anything that compromise sleep we will soon feel a noticeable improvement.

Bed buds are one factor that compromises sleep and long term health. These are tiny, stubborn insects that live in our bedding that feed on our blood and discarded skin. They are hard to see, but leave small red marks and rashes on our skin. Bed bugs will compromise our sleep simply by making us uncomfortable, so they should be eliminated.

Removing Bed Bugs:

  • A vacuum Cleaner will remove a lot of bed bugs and their eggs. Scrub the mattress and general area first with a stiff brush to loosen the, then thoroughly vacuum. Then dispose of the vacuum bag.
  • Put sheets/bedding in the freezer for a few hours, perhaps overnight. The bed bugs will not survive the cold.
  • Put the sheets/bedding through a hot wash and hang on the clothesline. The hot water in the wash will kill bedbugs. UV light from the Sun (when hung outside) will also disinfect sheets. A hot cloths drier is also effective.
  • Steam cleaners will also kill bed bugs.
  • A hot air drier (or a hot air gun used for electronics) will kill bed bugs on bedding, carpet and skirting boards. Vacuum afterwards.
  • Use pillow and mattress protectors. These are tightly woven cloths that prevent bugs from living inside the bedding. Leave these on for at least a year.
  • Spray the mattress and bedding with dilute Tea Tree Oil. This kills bugs, and smells quite good. Lavender Oil also works. Use this daily.
  • Diatomaceous Earth is a natural insect killer tat is not-toxic to humans and animals. Use this on and around beds. Use food grade Diatomaceous Earth.

Alpha Waves

Thai Massage Artarmon

It is good to be in a relaxed, yet focused state of mind when working. And it is good to sometimes be in a totally relaxed state of mind in order to recuperate from the activities of our daily lives. These different states of mind have been subject to a great deal of scientific study. And we now know that there is a strong correlation between the state of mind and the brain’s electromagnetic brainwaves.

 

A deeply relaxed state of mind produces alpha waves, though it has also been noted that these alpha waves can produce the deeply relaxed state of mind. These waves are vibration between 8-12 Hz.  This state of mind is meditation.

We do well to enter this Alpha state of mind. It is the type of brain function that lets us put our experiences together and sort ourselves out. We do something similar when we sleep, though for reasons not fully clear we seem to need both regular sleep and at least some regular meditation. The two states of mind and functions are similar, but not identical.

We can achieve an alpha state of mind through conscious meditation, or by relaxing with a massage. This help us keep ourselves together. We might also achieve meditation and alpha waves through audio devices that produce the sound of ocean waves or binaural beats that vibrate at the prerequisite 8-12 Hz.

Massage is good for us at many levels. It is worthwhile having a regular massage if only to feel more relaxed.

Blue Light

Willoughby Thai Massage

A few modern day conveniences may work against us, at least if we are not careful. Many of us spend a significant part of the day looking at computer monitors, smartphone screens of other devices. These screen emit blue light, which has now been show to be harful to our eyes and general health.

Our eyes, if they are healthy, see all the colours of the visible spectrum, from red through to blue; think of the colours of a rainbow if you need to visualize the spectrum. Beyond this range, beyond blue, is the ultraviolet spectrum, which causes sunburn. Below it, below red, is infrared, which we feel as heat.

The blue light at the top of the spectrum and the ultraviolet beyond this is harsh on our eyes. Under normal conditions, in normal daylight, there is only a moderate amount of this light, so our eyes don;t suffer too much harm. But on bright sunny day there can be too much UV and blue light, so our eyes are straightened. Good quality polarized sunglasses remove most of this harmful glare, and should be worn in bright sunlight.

Computer screens emit more blue light than is good for us. Over long periods this harms our eyes. The blue light penetrates right to the back of the eye, where it can harm the light receptors. In the short term this is irritating. Eventually it causes eyesight problems as we age.

An addition problem with blue light is that it affects our circadian rhythms, our ability to stay away during the day and sleep at night. If we are exposed to blue light late in the day, say by using a smartphone before bed, then we will have considerable trouble sleeping. This leads to a terrible situation where we are tired during the day and unable to sleep at night.

Adding a blue blocking filter to a screen will remove most, perhaps all of the blue light. This prevents sleep problems. Some modern computers and devices (with windows 10) offer a screen option with the blue light removed. this looks to be quite effective, and is highly recommended.

Sports Massage

Artarmon Thai Massage
‌‌

If we want to improve our physical health, particularity build muscle, then we need both exertions and rest. We exert ourselves while we train, and hopefully build some skills in the process. then we give ourselves time to recover, so the muscle has a change to rebuild and become a little stronger. Failure to exercise and failure to have some recovery time means we will not improve.

We should wait at least 24 hours after exerting ourselves before we engage in any further exertion. Failure to do so means the muscle will not develop, and our training is wasted. And there is a chance that the further exertion may cause serious damage. Light exercise, like walking or stretching is fine after heavy exercise, but we should not further exert the muscles that we are trying to build, not for a day or two.
Massage is a great way to connect exertion and recovery. Massage helps us psychologically relax after a workout or sporting performance. And it physiologically helps the muscles relax so that they can recover and develop.

Thai Massage Artarmon

Make a regular massage part of your training. as well as helping you recover and develop muscle the massage will put you in a good state of mind. And it helps remind you that the sport and exercise is part of a larger perspective and lifestyle.

Some Weight Loss Insights

Some Weight Loss Insights

Thai Massage Westmead

Maintaining a healthy weight really helps us at so many levels. Obviously it’s healthy, and increases our life expectancy, but it’s worth it if only because we feel better, more alive and more able to enjoy life.
• Even nutritious food can cause weight gain. Keep portions under control. Still, it’s better to fill up on lettuce than on sugary foods.
• Eating late in the day may work against us. This is debated, but a late meal may disrupt sleep. And some claim we don’t burn off the late meal like we burn off an early meal.
• It’s had to go too far wrong with vegetables. Fill up on steamed vegetables, than add a little lean meat.
• Some medications cause weight gain. Talk to the doctor.
• Have your thyroid checked. This can cause weight gain and other problems like temperature regulation.
• Alcohol can interfere with weight loss.
• Not all kilojoules are equal. Healthy food may contain the same number of kilojoules as junk food, but it will keep us active and healthy, and more able to lose weight.
• Cardio and strength training goes a long way to weight loss. This is basically essential.
• Muscle weight more than fat, but is less bulky. And muscle helps us burn calories even when we are at rest. Try to add some muscle.
• Sleep is important at every level. If we don’t sleep we do not recover from exercise, and cannot put on muscle. Furthermore, lack of sleep can make us hungry and reduce our impulse control.
• Eating fat will (generally) not cause us to get fat. Many fats are healthy, especially if they are a natural part of the foods. Cut out sugar, not fat.
• Find out if you have an allergy. Anything from dairy to artificial sweeteners can cause weight gain, and cause poor thinking.
• Diet is a higher priority than exercise. We cannot really compensate for a bad diet.
• Monitor progress. Even a small improvement is encouraging.
• Fad diets are mostly rubbish, and their effects are fleeting. It’s about changing to a healthy lifestyle than makes life better.
• While some principle are universal, natural food being better than refined foods, there is no one-size-fits-all diet. You may have to tailor your approach. Consult a nutritionist.
• Stress is never really good. It causes weight gain and food cravings, as well as poor immunity. Stress can have many causes, including lack of achievement and lack of fulfilment, or being constantly busy for little reward.
• Find healthy snacks, like carrots, celery, nuts, and some fruit.
• Get hormones checked. This can cause all sorts of weight problems.
• Gut bacteria makes a big difference. If we have healthy gut bacteria we digest food well, and steadily lose weight, while feeling better.
• Weight loss tends to stop and start, and plateau off. Do not be discouraged. Look at the long term pattern.
• The method of eating for 8 hours and then fasting for 16 hours seems to work. It is a long term strategy, but eat during the early hours and fast from the evening till the next day.
• Emotional eating is a real issue. We find we eat to feel better. Difficult as it may be, find the underlying cause.
• Food craving last about 15 minutes. If we can hold out this long the craving will subside.
• Eat slowly. This seems to help us eat less and enjoy the food more.
• Add fibre and water. This fills us up, and keeps us healthy.
• There is no end of a diet. This is a new way of living, and new healthy lifestyle that is a better way of living.

Skin – Keratosis Pilaris

Keratosis Pilaris - massageArtarmon Thai Massage
Almost nobody has perfect skin. But most of us can have quite good skin if we take a little time and effort. This has long and short term benefits. In the short term the skin looks clearer. In the long term we slow down the signs of aging.
If we follow the basics of good health, eating well, exercise, good sleep, massage and meditation, then we will achieve at least some improvement with our skin. But a few skin conditions require some extra treatment.
Keratosis pilaris
One common skin condition is Keratosis pilaris. This is skin that forms red bumps or spots at the hair follicle, sometime called ‘chicken skin’. It most often appears on the back of the arms or the legs. While this is not harmful it is less than ideal, and some people are embarrassed by the look of these red areas. The condition can never be permanently removed, but ongoing treatments can greatly reduce the problem.

Keratosis pilaris
• Blue light devices will reduce the bacteria involved in keratosis (and acne). Devices are available online. 20 minutes twice per week is often enough. Remember to shield your eyes from the blue light.
• Sulphur soap will unclog the hair follicles, though the redness many persist for a while. This soap is very drying on the skin, so always moisturize afterward, and do not use on areas where you don’t need it.
• Coconut oil moisturizes and breaks down the blockage in hair follicles. This is good for using after sulphur soap.
• Emu oil is another good moisturizer, and breaks down clogs in follicles. It also improves circulation. The only downside is that it will make the skin feel cold for about half an hour.
• Allergies can aggravate or cause skin conditions. Consider an allergy test. Common culprits are dairy and gluten.
• Low inflammation foods can help. Eat turmeric, leafy vegetables, nuts, fish, olive oil.
• Retinol is a topically applied treatment that speeds up cell turnover in skin. Prescription strength retinol can rally help treat keratosis, though this may not be cheap.
