"Meditation is the tongue of the soul and the language of the spirit."

-Jeremy Taylor

Do you meditate? Have you ever tried to meditate? Would you even begin to know how to and if so, have you been successful? Ah, the ancient practice of focusing your awareness. The road to enlightenment! The Buddhist say, "The gift of learning to meditate is the greatest gift you can give yourself in this life."

So then, why is it that meditation eludes so many of us? Why isn't it something we start to practice at a young age so we can all experience inner peace, tap into our true spiritual nature and open the doors to the mysteries of our mind?

Perhaps one of the reasons is it isn't easy. They say we think some 60,000 thoughts a day and most of them go unnoticed by us. Well, try meditating for only one or two minutes and you will witness the first 100 or 200 thoughts of your day. It seems like, instead of quieting your mind, suddenly all you can think about is EVERYTHING.

Try and sit for 1 minute and clear your mind. Try and release your thoughts so you can go within, follow your breathing and simply be. WOW! Climbing Mt. Everest seems like a breeze compared to trying to quiet your mind. Go ahead, try it and you'll see exactly what I am talking about.

Meditating is basically learning to have a relationship with your true self, your spiritual self and God/Your Higher Power/Allah. Prayer is a form of meditation but learning to quiet your mind and going within is where you meet your spirit, where you begin to know who you are. Some call it nirvana or enlightenment and this experience transcends all religions.

Look I know we are never going to become Buddhist monks but taking a couple of minutes out of your day to tap into a least a glimpse of peace is worth your time. Not to mention that it begins your day with a more calm approach to what may lie ahead and the fact is that we should all start each day in some form of prayer, mediation and thankfulness.

Many people are in such a hurry. They hustle and bustle around each day that they never take the time to go within even for just 1 tiny minute. Some people just can't stop. They don't know how to relax and they couldn't tell you what taking time for themselves is. This is the exact time that they should stop and take a breather.

So why not give it a try and at least attempt to meditate; it will take you one step closer to reaching that spiritual place inside you. It's a wonderful place that already exists within you which you have never had a relationship with or experienced yet. Plus, it reduces stress, it keeps you centered and it nourishes your soul.

Traditional Chinese Medicine(TCM) usually used as a herbal therapy to shrink kidney cysts and polycystic kidneys, etc. A detailed introduction is described as below.

TCM also refers to Chinese herbal medicine, and it has been created over 2500 years in ancient China. Based on Chinese herbal medicine, an advanced herbal therapy---Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy came out.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy has a good curative effect in shrinking cysts and the enlargement kidneys. Those effective substances can penetrate into the kidney lesions with the help penetrating fluids and osmosis devices.These natural medicine substances, after entering into patients' body, can boost cysts shrink gradually. By promoting the permeability of cyst wall aided by herbal medicines, cyst liquid will be reabsorbed into blood vessels, and then be discharged out of body along with the urine.As for the necrotic cells, stem cell can play roles and differentiate into those cells after they are transplanted. After that, renal tissues can be regenerated and renal function can be recovered.

In fact, through dilating the renal blood vessels, more nutrients in blood will be transferred into kidney lesions, so kidneys will get more nutrients. So the perfusion flow of the blood to the kidneys will be increased, and the kidneys' filtration rate will be improved.

After we know the application mechanism of Micro-Chinese Medicine, now let us review once again how the polycystic kidneys appear.

The enlarged polycystic kidneys are resulted from the constant secretion of cysts. Cyst's swelling up stems from the continue proliferation of cystic lining epithelial cells. These lining cells escape monitoring from immune system so their proliferation is uncontrolled.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can stop the proliferation of cystic lining cells, thus it can restrict the further enlargement of polycystic kidneys. Meantime, it can change the structure of lining cells, and force the fluids in cyst moves to blood vessels. After about 2weeks to 4 weeks, you can expect to feel the shrink of renal cysts in its size and number. Since the numerous cysts can be affected at the same time, you will experience a whole shrinkage of your polycystic kidneys in a very large degree.

Above are the detailed descriptions of herbal therapy in shrinking polycystic kidneys as well as the cysts. Detailed information is available for you.

It is strange to think that an ancient Chinese practice can help people who suffer from the very modern condition known as whiplash.

Whiplash describes the injury resulting from the head suddenly jerking backwards; injuring the neck and the shoulders.

It often results from a car accident and research suggests that 50 per cent of people with whiplash injuries still suffer a year after the accident.

No Win No Fee solicitors Claims Direct can help people who have suffered a whiplash injury make a personal injury claim if the accident happened through no fault of their own.

Claims Direct also helps support people throughout the rehabilitation process and ensure that they get the treatment they need.

And there is growing belief that Qi gong (pronounced che gong), a form of tai-chi, can be extremely beneficial to whiplash sufferers.

Leading GP Dr Martin Scurr, writing in the Good Health section of the Daily Mail on July 12th 2011, commented: "There is evidence to suggest that Qi gong, a form of tai-chi, produces improvement in the long term. I am frequently surprised by how many whiplash patients end up practicing this, and I sense that it can be of great value."

Jeremy Marshall certainly agrees with this statement. Jeremy, 35, has been practicing Qi gong for 13 years and teaches this healthcare system in Brighton.

I interviewed Jeremy to find out more about Qi gong and how it can help people with whiplash.

Q: Can you tell me a little about what Qi gong involves?

JM: Qi gong is all about maintaining good health or recovering from illness. Movements are performed slowly, with awareness, and by regulating the body, breath and mind. Introduce breathing movements can move you closer to the feeling of tranquillity and stillness which is the essence of Qi gong. As society has become more complex and demanding people crave good health and well-being even more – a desire which has led to a noticeable rise in the popularity of Qi gong.

Q: Do you think that Qi gong can help people with whiplash injuries?

JM: Yes, I do. I can give people very basic (and gentle) rolling-the-neck and nodding-the-head exercises which can help them relax the neck and re-align the vertebrae. Equally importantly, Qi gong can help people learn to relax and let go of the fear of hurting their neck and shoulders again. People who have suffered a whiplash injury can have a natural instinct to try and avoid moving their neck – hence the ‘funnels' which you see people wearing around their neck to limit mobility. But it can be essential to move your neck again in order to recover from injuries. Reducing stress and fear through Qi gong really can help people do this.

Q: Are there any specific breathing exercises for people with whiplash?

JM: People with whiplash injuries can benefit from breathing from the belly and the diaphragm. This is how you breathe when you sleep. When you are stressed your shoulders and neck tend to rise so you can find yourself taking shallower breaths – something which will not help the pain in these areas and will not help you combat stress. The less stress you have, the more open you will be to healing processes.

Q: Jeremy, you also practice acupuncture. How beneficial can acupuncture be to people with whiplash?

JM: Acupuncture can be very beneficial to people with neck injuries. Acupuncture needles can help release tightness in muscles and focus the immune system, which is so vital for healing, on one area. It is often a good idea for people with whiplash injuries to have acupuncture first to help repair damage and then introduce them to Qi gong – something they can practice at home to speed up the healing process even more.
