Tropical diseases – an article by Heidi Marchena, pharmacist at Botica di Servicio

ARUBA – When planning your holiday abroad the logistics of the trip are usually taking up all the time and attention.  However, what you also should keep in mind is how to stay healthy abroad. Your first line of defense against tropical diseases and other maladies is protecting yourself. The three main ways that disease is spread are: contaminated food, contaminated water, and last but not least bites from mosquitoes, flies, ticks, fleas and other insects. Before packing your suitcase you should consult one of the specialized websites or your travel agency to inform you about what current health risks may be at hand at your destination. You may need to get a prescription or even a vaccination as a precaution.

HumanHints, today ‘Patterns Of Reaction’

Every day, we are relentlessly bombarded by external stimuli. Our reaction to the stimulus defines who we are and what our lives are like. In theory, we can change our lives by changing our reaction to daily stimuli, by changing out attitudes toward our lives. Its not what happens to us, it’s how we react to what happens, that defines who we are. As we grow, our reactions to different types of input first become automatic, then completely unconscious.

We are all aware of our physical bodies, but most of us are unaware of our electromagnetic Body. This is a portion of our selves that lies just beyond our limited perception of three dimensions. It is an entity that is conscious and aware of itself, just as it is aware of the physical part of you.

HumanHints, today ‘Ego Exploits Imagination’

Human imagination holds the power of infinite creation, but in three dimensions, it is easily manipulated and abused by the Human Ego. Just like Einstein’s quip, “Great spirits will encounter fierce opposition from mediocre minds,” our powerful imagination is exploited by our insecure ego. When children play, they imagine themselves in another reality. Often, they get so into their alternate expression, they begin to loose the boundary between here and there.
