Astragalus, What is it?

Astragalus is a very well-studied botanical, native to China and used for centuries as a mainstay in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). As such it has been used to treat respiratory and cardiovascular conditions; to enhance the immune system; as a hepatoprotectant (liver); and, even to cure the common cold. As with TCM or in general, ethnomedicines, it is recognized as being safe because of its long history of use by typically millions of people.

> So people on earth have been using this BOTANICAL for a long time, by lots of people, with noticeable impact. WOW

One of the most interesting finding regarding Astragalus has to deal with its apparent ability to act in aging and life extension. Studies have shown that it can regenerate nerves and heart, bone and muscle cells. In essence, as we age, our cells are not as readily repaired and replaced – a normal sign of the process which leads to those diseases and features associated with aging.

>Studies show what?? that it regenerate nerves, heart, bone and muscle cells. Sounds like something people will benefit from if they add it to their diet.

Part of the aging process itself deals with DNA, the software that runs our bodies. Just as in computers, over time, the software becomes corrupt and ineffective but unlike computers, the DNA software cannot be replaced. In 2009, the Nobel Prize for medicine was awarded to three researchers who discovered that aging, aging DNA, was directly related to the telomeres.

>Telomeres, what are telomeres?

DNA is bundled together in chromosomes and at the end of each chromosome is a cap, the telomere. It can be likened to shoestrings that have plastic caps on either end. Over time, through use, the plastic caps breakdown and at some point, the shoestring itself. Similarly, as we age, the telomere shortens and at some point, it becomes too short; the chromosomes unravel and become ineffective, no longer able to create new cells. The Nobel was awarded because the key to telomere viability is a protein, known as telomerase that rebuilds telomeres.

>What would it be like to stop aging, or at least regain some youthful energy?

Astragalus has been shown to activate telomerase, allowing it to repair telomeres and indeed, in animal studies, telomeres grew. This may well explain Astragalus’ ability to aid in the regeneration of cells – in particular those of the nervous system. In any case, there is a growing body of evidence that Astragalus is effective in attenuating the aging process by turning-on telomerase, reversing senescence.

>This is all been studied by SCIENCE!

For this reason and this reason alone, it was included in the current formula. Although some have claimed otherwise, it may not be something that is readily noticed but with time, its benefits will become apparent.

The power of Manifestation

So, I expressed my desire to advance along my "Public Speaking" path, and recently posted that I would get at least 1 gig, and it has become #manifest .
 
Everywhere I looked, the barriers seemed a difficult thing to overcome. The process for getting into public speaking, voice over work, and to actually get in front of people was all about paying for schools, training, agencies, etc...
 
Rather than doubt my power to overcome, the powers that be, God/Universe, or whatever you want to call it, opened a door of opportunity for me, and I took #action .
 
Within my first 5 days in the industry, I have experienced being a intern, and got paid to talk words (As a stand in), experienced Pre-Production as a Production assistant and now working as "EXTRA TALENT". Life moves fast when you accept what is.
 
It really was based on 5 points of #Manifestation which I have used for many years, and now I am just stepping up my game, and expressing bigger and bigger steps in my journey of self-improvement. 
 
Now that I have reached the destination of my short term reachable goal, I am also making progress towards my longer term #success vision.
 
I appreciate all the off-line and online friends who have given me moral support, and inspired me to plant more seeds and increase my harvest.

Manifesting websites

The manifestation of a website if started through a thought, and becomes manifest through word.

The words within a page, or a post, or a section of that domain is an expression of its intent. Clarifying the service or benefit is often the primary goal of using words and media. Within marketing there is a desire to tap into the emotional aspect of others, to reinforce the message being delivered.

This brings in many aspects of word choice, idea flow, and readability.  This goes beyond mere word choice, and graphic composition. Considerations of visual and mental focus create an opportunity for feelings to be expressed and interpreted. 

Tapping into the unseen bio-chemical and experiential state of the human condition is an essential aspect of social interaction and business. The technological and social aspects of media's influence on thought, focus, and attention presents an opportunity to express and to interpret a variety of perspectives. Add automation and Artificial Intelligence into the mix, and we are really experiencing a very interesting world.

So the journey begins, the Blog of Aaron Griggs. Information to change the world... At least my world, and hopefully some of you who are reading.

The topics I will cover will include, but are not limited to ... Universal transformation, Individual growth, Digital business, Online marketing, social media, self help, conspiracies, possible and existing technology, stories, and just about any other topic I find interesting.

Thanks again for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.
