About Breast Cancer

Breast Cancer Ribbon provided by psd-princess from deviantartThe feeling of pain, fear and the anticipatory surgery summarize the breast cancer awareness.

Diagnostic Medical Procedures that are dangerous:

Expert doctors and scientists in this field will repeatedly tell everyone that preventive measures like self-examination, mammograms and even removal of infected breast are the best cure. However, there are non-conforming voices elsewhere regarding these things. Samuel S. Epstein, M.D., founder of the Cancer Prevention Coalition, claims that mammography is unreliable and used or profit by most medical practitioners. For him and the organization in general, routine exposure to mammograms can result to cumulative, noteworthy radiation risks and breast compression cancer. According to the data held by the Coalition notes, readings from mammograms are inaccurate and the use of this device has failed to decrease the breast cancer mortality rates. Continue reading

How To Change Differential Oil in Subaru

How To Change Differential OilIt’s time for a How-To Article! This time I put an article for a gear oil change tutorial. Gear oil can be used for four-wheel differentials of many kinds of cars. So, if you were looking for an article or tutorial on How To Change Differential Oil in Subaru or 2003 Subaru Forester to be more exact, then you came to the right place. Since I didn’t have the pump, I used a funnel with a hose (or tube) to fill the gear oil back into the differential. Of course there is not enough space in the back and under the car to be able to properly fit the funnel. So I had to compromise ;) I drilled a hole under the spare tire which made everything work out like a piece of cake. Make sure to read the whole tutorial before jumping into it, so you know for sure that you have everything that is needed for your differential’s gear oil change. So, let’s begin with the tutorial… Continue reading

How To Replace Kenmore Washer Dog Agits

Kenmore Washer Dog AgitsRecently we had some spinning problems with our Kenmore Washer, and after talking to some people it sounded like it’s a very common problem. For the last month or so our Kenmore Washer started making loud noises, especially when we had large loads for it to wash. It sounded like loud abnormal clicking or thread stripping. Also, if we would looked inside our washer, we were able to see that while it is suppose to be rotating our clothes from top to bottom, it was Not doing that. Instead, it looked like the big plastic center rotating piece was not catching unto something and so it sounded like there is something inside it stripping the threads or some kind of little teeth.
Well, guess what after we figured it all out, there really is indeed little plastic teeth that worn out for the last seven years. Yes, our Kenmore washer is still good overall after all these seven and a half years. So, I definitely recommend buying yourself a Kenmore Washer instead of any other brands, but of course it is up to you, maybe you know something that I don’t. Anyway, if you have similar problems, then your washer most likely needs “Dog
Agits” replaced. Continue reading

How to get Better eye Vision Naturally with Exercise

How To Exercise Eyes - How To Get Better VisionIn this Article I will tell you all about the information that I found on How to exercise eyes naturally and the steps on how to get 20 20 vision naturally. Dr. William H. Bates, M.D., discovered the principles and habits of natural clear vision, and then W.B. MacCracken, M.D., trained with dr. W.H. Bates. Later, MacCracken taught Natural Vision Improvement in Berkeley, California. Then in 1937, MacCracken wrote a book called, Use Your Own Eyes, and in that book he stated that this Dr. Bates Natural method has been proved, and it is scientific and successful. He also stated that this Natural Vision Improving method requires its students to be confident, receptive, and earnest. You have to set you mind 100% to it. If you’ll be thinking or acting like it’s not totally important, then you will most likely fail by giving up. Before you decide to begin these free eye exercises to correct vision, you must stay relaxed and 100% confident with No turning back or giving up. This Natural dr. Bates eye method is possible because thousands of patients just like you did it all the way and got amazing results. So, if you have Myopia = Nearsightedness, Hyperopia = Farsightedness, Presbyopia = Aging vision,  Astigmatism (Strabismus) = An irregularly shaped cornea (Cross-eye), Amblyopia = Lazy eye, Floaters, or some other kind of vision issue, then you must read this article all the way to the bottom so you can make a better decision about the health of your eyes. I also recommend that you either buy or find free info about this topic of “how to get better eye vision naturally”. When I was doing this research, I was getting lots useless and weak information. But then when I started including important names with my keywords, then I began finding exactly what I wanted and needed to know. I’d recommend using W.B. MacCracken M.D. name and W.H. Bates M.D. name with your other natural eye exersising keywords. There are websites that offer classes to fix eyesight of your eyes naturally with past support from dr. Bates. Also, there really isn’t an exact ABC order by which you must go to fix your eyes, it’s pretty much the common sense that you can use after reading and understanding this article or after reading and understanding one of those doctors’ books. Yes, in 1920 dr. Bates wrote a book called Perfect Sight Without Glasses, and dr. MacCracken in 1937 wrote a book called Use Your Own Eyes. You can either try to find it online to buy it or find a free e-book. Below this article I will provide you with the links of where to buy these books or to get them for free as an e-book. Well, Let’s begin with the steps to take in order for you to strengthen eyesight. These free eye exercises to correct vision, are going to have some detailed eyes tips, so you can understand the purpose and importance of each one of these steps. After reading these natural and healthy eyes exercises you’ll be able to come up with your own steps that you will need to do on a regular basis. In other words, when you have time, preferably when no one is looking and when no one can interfere with your eye exercise, that is when you should practice stretching your eye muscles.
1. – Relaxing mentally and physically. Stand straight, or sit straight, or even lay straight, don’t be in a crooked or abnormal position. Don’t let your muscles tense. Take your glasses off if you have them, and try to Not wear them if you don’t have too. When you wear glasses you make your eyesight weaker and worse. Close your eyes and keep relaxing. In your thoughts plan on not giving up with this eye method. Also, if you smoke or drink any alcohol, then you must make yourself stop that degrading and harmful activity. Also, while relaxing, you need to plan on eating healthy, like organic fruits and vegetables, because not only exercise is important for a healthy eyesight but the healthy nutrition too. Just imaging how your life could be better if you would start eating right, exercising right with your body and eyes, and not doing any drugs, alcohol, or cigarettes. You can do this for about a minute of so.
2. – Palming. You can use the palms of your hands to help yourself and your eyes relax more effectively.
– – – a.) Warm up your hands by rubbing them briskly together for like ten seconds or so. Hold the fingers of each hand tightly together.
– – – b.) Gently cover your eyes with your warm palms and not the fingers, left hand for left eye and right hand for right eye. Your fingers may overlap on your forehead. Do not push on your eyeballs, just tightly protect them from the light. If you can put your elbows on you knees or on the table then that would be even better. By doing this you are improving the blood flow in the eye lids and relaxing your eyes by the body heat from your palms. Also, some people believe that Palming can help relax your mind, body, neck, eye muscles, eyes, brain, and retina in the eyes.
– – – c.) Now blink like ten times, not too fast and not too slow. Blinking helps your body provide your eyes with the natural tears that support the health of your eyes.
– – – d.) Stop blinking, keep your eyes covered with your palms, close your eyes and try to look deep into dark and clean outer space with very little number of stars in it. You are trying to refresh and clean of your thoughts and mind from any busy colors and pictures. Some people like to imagine being in heaven, or floating down the slow river in a boat and laying and looking at the blue beautiful sky. In other words imagine something peaceful, quiet, and pleasant for your mind. You can also use your memory or imagination while trying the Palm exercise step. You can do the Palming step from one to ten minutes, it depends on how much time you have available.
3. – Breathing or Abdominal Breathing. This step can be done with eyes either closed or open. You can either stand, sit, or lay for this step too. Just make sure that you are relaxed. Breath in lots of air slowly and with your stomach muscles move your stomach out forward, making it look bigger than usual. Hold the air for a second or two. Then slowly release all of the air out of your lungs and with your stomach muscles pull your stomach back in. Do Not extremely over do it, but do it just enough to stretch your lungs carefully. Sometimes the cells in our bodies need extra oxygen, just like we put extra bubbles in the aquarium to help our fish and its water stay healthier. Some people believe that Breathing can relax the eyes, eye muscles, mind, and body, and it supports the clearer vision.
4. – Shifting or Saccade movement of eyes. Saccades are fast simultaneous movements of both eyes into the same direction. Some people believe that Saccade movements of our eyes can improve the eyesight, and help us get clearer and better vision, even better than 20 / 20 vision, because it pulls extra light into the eyes. Here is how to shift your eyes. Pick an object, let’s say a neighbor’s house or your own. Find four corners of that house (bottom left, top left, top right, and bottom right), and think of them as your stop points. Then start shifting your eyes from one stop point to another for a few seconds. Then, you can pick a window, make the four corners into four points and start shifting from one to another. Also, try blinking while shifting from point to point, that will help your body produce natural tears and improve the health of your eyes. This eye exercise is very important, so try to do it with something that is very close to your face, fifty feet away from your face, and with something that is so far away that you can barely see it.
5. – Central Fixation. Seeing clearer by using the center of the visual field. That center of the visual field should be at the eye level and in the center of the two eyes. For example, if there is an apple tree full of leaves and some apples, pick an apple to look at that is in the very center of that tree. Move your head and neck freely and comfortably and look at that apple carefully. That apple is the Center of the visual field, which in this case is the whole tree. While looking at that apple, pick the four corner points and shift from one to another. You can also try moving the head, the neck, and the body with the eyes freely. This process is also very important because it helps your eyes to see clearer, better, more detailed, and with better colors.
6. – Eye, head, neck, and body Movement. There are two types of movements you can do with your eyes, one is with eyes only and the other one is with eyes, head, neck, and body. First let’s do the eye moving only, without the body moving. Pick a comfortable position for your to be in and  move your eyes to the right as far as you can, wait a second, and then look to the left as far as you can. Do this nice and slow like ten to twenty times. Then Look up as far as possible, wait a second, and then move your eyes all the way down as far as possible. Do this too, nicely, slowly and like ten to twenty times. Then, do the same kind of exercise only start from the top left corner of your eye and go straight down to the bottom right corner of your eyes. After you finish that exercise, do the same kind of steps only start from top right corner and go straight down to the bottom left corner of your eyes. After you are done with these steps, roll your eyes beginning from the very top of your eyes and roll them clockwise like ten to twenty times. When you are rolling your eyes, make sure that you keep them as far as possible during each possible direction. After you are done rolling clockwise, then do the same thing only counterclockwise. This exercise supports the stretching of your eye muscles which support a better vision. The second type of eye movements, can be done by moving them with the whole body. For instance, a baseball player looks at the ball, hits it, and then runs after it. He uses his eyes, head, neck, and the whole body. You could also, go to a lake or river, find a little rock, and throw it where there is no people around. While the rock flies and then hits the water you can use your eyes, neck, head, and maybe even the body to keep it in your sight.
7. – Switch eyesight. Use your eyes to switch your attention from a close object to a far object, and then from that far object to even farther object. This exercise step suppose to improve the clarity of eyesight at all distances. Here is how you can do it in an everyday life. Look at the close object, a car, an animal, or a fence, then look at the very far object like a mountain, a building, or a tree that is very far away, then look at the middle object that is between the first and the second objects that you just looked at. Repeat those steps like ten times and then you can change the order of those steps. You can even put your finger in front of your face to make a very close distance object, then look at it and slowly move it towards your nose and keep looking at it, your eyes will cross so that way you can stretch some more eye muscles. Also, you can improve your eyesight if you combine Switching and Shifting methods. While switching to a far or close object trace it with your eyes, and then go to the next distance.
So, I hope you understood all of these important steps to take in order to improve your eyesight naturally. It is very important to try to make it a healthy habit of stretching your eyes more and more on a regular basis. You can even look at it like this, most people are getting sick and fat because of the lack of exercise and because of the bad nutrition. Well, same thing happens with the eyes, if you don’t provide your body with needed nutrition for the eyes or don’t exercise your eyes, then you’ll get either blind or poor vision. Some people and doctors recommend, very carefully and lightly massaging your eyeballs while the eye lids are closed. Always wear eye protective glasses or goggles when working around dangerous particles or chemicals. It’s funny that I found people that support both sides, one side supports letting the eyes be in the sun and the other side tells you to keep your eyes away from the sun, I’ll let you decide what you want to do about that. I believe it’s ok to have you eyes in the sun without glasses as long as you don’t look directly at the sun. Try not to wear the contact lenses for long periods of time, 19 hours is the maximum, then let your eyes relax. If you use any eye drops, read the labels, make sure you know what you are putting in your precious eyes which are not replaceable. And for legal purposes please read the Disclaimer at the very bottom of this website that is in red letters, but do keep in mind that Common Sense is healthy for you, don’t have it, then read the Bible and ask God to give you the right understanding of everything that you need to understand.

Before getting the laser surgery, ask yourself these questions:
– Are you planning to have your current prescription etched permanently onto your eyeball?
– Did you know there are many potential harmful results that are not required to be revealed regarding these surgeries?
– Do you want to interfere with the natural meridians through your eyes, (as stated by an ophthalmologist)?
– Would you risk interfering with natural secretions from your cornea?
– Do you want more eye surgeries later, trying to correct the damage caused by the first one?
– Do you want permanent dry eyes as a result of the artificial edge between the flatten parts of your cornea and the curved part of your cornea, because tears cannot adhere normally to the cornea around the lasered ring?
– Did you do enough research for possible Natural ways of improving your eyesight?
– Does the Laser eye surgery sound natural and healthy to you?

How to Oil Change a Car

How to Oil Change a CarIf you are looking for free information and free step by step instructions on How to Oil change a Car, then you came to the right web page. To be more specific, this article will answer the question like, How to Oil Change Subaru Forester 2003? Well, to tell you the truth it is very pretty easy if you compare to the other car oil changes. Because the oil filter and the drain bolt plug are in the most easiest and most comfortable place, which is in the empty, front, bottom, and easy to reach area of the engine. I recommend to raise the car for an easier access. Then, you should get ready the new five quarts of oil and one new oil filter. Most of the cars, vans, trucks, and suv’s use different amount of oil and a unique kind of oil filter, so make sure that you get just the right stuff. Also, I really recommend that you spend extra money and get Fully Synthetic Oil, I get the NAPA Full Synthetic Oil. If you will follow these instructions on how to do an oil change on a car, then it is totally your responsibility if anything at all goes wrong. If you don’t feel confident enough or don’t trust my advice, then please go and find someone else’s or just let some professional and trusted shop do an oil change for you. My oil changes are getting better and faster with every time I do them, but in the beginning it was taking me a while to finish it all up. Some cars, trucks, vans, or suv’s have their oil filters located in the most stupid places ever, which makes your and mine job a lot more complicated and a lot more time go by before you finish your oil change. I hear that some new autos have some weird and even more impossible locations for the oil filter and for the oil draining bolt. So, like I said before, make sure you are confident enough and are going to be able to finish your job all the way. I’d recommend for you to read my whole article before starting any oil and oil filter replacement. Well, if you are ready, confident, and able to do this on your own, then lets get started.

Location of the Oil cap and the DipstickLocate or Find the Top Oil Cap and the Oil Dipstick that helps you check the oil level. On my subaru both of them have the yellow color on their handles. Unscrew the oil cap, clean it and put it aside. Pull out the oil dipstick level checker, clean it and put it aside also. I like to take those off in order to let the engine ventilate better and help it cool down faster, because then the dirty oil will drain easier.

.

.

.

Location of the oil filter and oil pan with the drain bolt plugGo under your car or subaru and find the old oil filter and the drain bolt on an oil pan. On my subaru they are located right after the bumper and the radiator and in the very front under the motor. Clean them up a little so it is more pleasant and easier to work with.

.

.

.

.

Oil draining into the containerGet a wide and deep container and put it under the draining bolt and unscrew that drain bolt plug. Please try to avoid any oil leaks on the concrete or on the dirt. Cover the concrete or the dirt with something that can prevent the oil leaking through it. After the old oil is done draining, then clean of that drain bolt and around the drain hole, and then put the drain bolt back in, and carefully tighten it.

.

.

.

Location of the spot for the oil filterThen, move your container under the old oil filter and unscrew the oil filter. Let all the oil from the old oil filter and from its original spot leak into the container. Then Clean very good that original oil filter spot.

.

.

.

.

Oil filter in its spotGet the new oil filter, and open one of the new oil quarts. Since this Subaru has an easy oil filter location and position, then we can fill like 75% of this new oil filter with the new oil. Also, dip your finger in the oil and smear some of the oil on the rubber seal of that new oil filter. We put some of the oil on the rubber seal of the new oil filter because we want it to be easier in the future to take this oil filter off. Now you can put this new oiled oil filter in its location under the engine and make sure that it is nice and tight. So, right now make sure that the drain bolt plug and the new oil filter are both in their locations and are screwed in tightly.

.

.

preparation for car oil pouringHere you are ready to put the new oil into the engine. Get a funnel and put it in the whole where the big top oil cap was and Not in the dipstick’s little hole. Then, pour in first four guarts of oil into the engine. Then, put the dipstick in its hole and screw in the top oil cap. Start the engine and let it run for like a minute. Stop the engine after about a minute of runing. Now, check the oil level, by taking out the oil dipstick and wiping it clean with a dry cloth, and then insert the dipstick back into its hole and wait like three seconds, and then take it back out and look how high is the oil level from the very bottom edge of the dipstick. I like to fill the oil until the second hole on the dipstick gets covered with oil. So, if you need to fill more oil, then open that top oil cap and fill in just one half of a quart, and recheck the oil level. When you are satisfied with the oil level, then make sure to put the dipstick in its place and to screw the top oil cap back in tightly.
