How is the Body, Mind and Spirit Connected?

It was my Birthday this week and so I am thinking about “New Beginnings.”I have always maintained that “new beginnings” are important in any phase of your life.As you know for those of you who have been following my Blog I advocate 3 aspects to a fulfilling life and those aspects are:Mind/ body/ spirit.If these 3 aspects of your life are in harmony then you can accomplish anything you put you mind to.I have been focusing mostly on the body till today and now I would like to switch it up a bit and explain to you why a Body Transformation is so imperative to disciplining your mind and enriching your spirit.The body is an external manifestation of who we are and what we represent in life. When somebody looks at you they assess you based on what they see. I know you may think it is unfair but we live in a world which IS judgmental. Now what I am going to tell you is not about how other people see you primarily but how you see yourself.I need to stress that until you are satisfied with how you look on the outside and feel on the inside that will dictate how your approach your spiritual side. The Body is our temple. So if you cannot focus and get the Body you desire and if you cannot control your diet you are in big trouble for setting up your mental faculties and your Spirituality in order.Working on your Body is like a dress rehearsal for working on the rest of your life.Think about that!Stay strong and beautiful.

What is Charcot’s Foot that Occurs in Diabetes?

Charcot’s foot is one of the many problems which might occur in those with diabetes mellitus. The higher blood sugar levels that stem from all forms of diabetes have an affect on numerous body systems including the eyesight, renal system as well as nerves. In long standing cases, particularly if there has been an unsatisfactory control of the blood sugar levels, you can find problems with the nerves supplying the feet. This will make the feet in danger of issues as if something fails, you don’t know it has gone wrong as you can not really feel it due to the harm to the nerves. This might be something as simple as standing on a rusty nail and that getting contaminated and you are not aware that you’ve stood on the nail. Should it be a blister or ingrown toenail which gets infected and you do not know that it is present on the foot unless you have a look. This is why foot care can be so necessary for those with diabetes and why it will be provided a great deal of emphasis. A Charcot foot is the destruction occurring to the bones and joints if you have an injury and you do not know that the injury has happened.

A way of looking at it could be to consider this way: pretend that you sprain your ankle horribly and you also are not aware that you have simply because you do not experience the pain from it. You then carry on and walk around on it. Picture all of the additional harm which you do by walking about on it. The earliest you may possibly discover that there may be something wrong happens when you take a seat and look at the feet and you observe that one is a great deal more swollen compared to the other foot. This is exactly what occurs in individuals with diabetes who develop a Charcot’s foot. There may be some destruction, such as a sprained ankle or maybe a progressive failure of the arch of the foot and as no pain is sensed they carry on and walk around on it. It should be apparent simply how much more injury that gets done to the original injury prior to the problem is finally observed because of the swelling. At times there is not much swelling, but the Charcot’s foot is picked up from the difference in temperature between the two feet as a result of inflammation related process in the damaged foot that generates more warmth.

The development of a Charcot foot really needs to be dealt with as a bit of an urgent situation since the further it advances the much more serious it’s going to be and the more challenging it can be to handle. The individual definitely needs to quit all weightbearing without delay or at least obtain a walking support so that the damage is protected. For the not too major instances and those conditions which were serious and have improved a really supportive orthotic in the footwear is required to support the feet and the injuries. Sometimes surgical procedures are required to straighten the subluxed and dislocated bones. By far the most critical situations can end up with the foot and/or leg required to be amputated as the trauma has been doing an excessive amount of impairment.
