Just be still for a moment and cast aside any distractions. You cannot fully appreciate something if your mind is elsewhere.

You might have to use a bit of imagination to get going, but once you’re there it’s difficult to stop.

Begin to notice your surroundings. Don’t dwell too long on one thing. Just take in your environment and sink further into that state of peace and relaxing.

Donald Trump Hate Groups Increase in America – San Diego Holds Many

BEFORE I START THIS POST, PLEASE READ: I am not affiliated to any political party. I am a free thinker and nobody owns me, nothing owns me. I owe nothing to nobody. So, no, I don’t hate Trump, I don’t love Obama nor vice versa. I just analyze publicly certain situations when I think they are out of control.

And United States of America so called president (yes, with ‘p’ lower case) is out of control. It is chaos reigning in the world right now. If there is chaos in the USA, there is chaos in the world, simply because the US has been the leader of the globe for decades. And that -chaos- is not good for the USA and it is not good for the planet.

I cannot call him “President Trump”, because he might have the title but he does not behave like one. I have no respect for him at all. He is crude, rude, low class, vulgar, even perverse. Yes, I have been quiet, but he has gone too far. He is absolutely and irrefutable out of his mind, saying things like “there is a vaccine for AIDS” …. WHAT?! When I heard this, how can I say it without insulting him badly? ah, no, impossible to find a decent word.

What I cannot comprehend is why there are still many people who believe the words that come out of his mouth and follow him to his rallies. He is not “going to drain the swamp” people, because HE IS part of the swamp. He gives tax relieves to his friends. He hasn’t revealed his taxes because he has powerful friends who protect him from doing so, because it is good for what ever they are doing with him and through him: M.O.N.E.Y.

Worst of all, he has created a climate of hate, terrible fear and death. Frankly, I am making this post as a statement of my opposition to killing and the suppression of life. As a medical doctor I have the obligation and responsibility to save lives, to extend the lifespan of my patients, I make their lives more comfortable and help them live with physical and mental dignity.

Trump, with the hate that invades his tiny little mind, is infecting humanity and it’s my obligation to say it so, as a doctor. As a medical doctor I oppose the use of choke-holds, I oppose brutality and aggression against ANY human being. I will NEVER agree to the use of deadly force to control any type of situation (those that many hate groups, consider it to be “normal”!) Those are excuses to kill because of hate and rage.

MY FINAL THOUGHTS: Hate creates sadness, anxiety, depression, physical illnesses that can threaten human lives. Hate produces a huge increment in suicide numbers, a terrible loss of lives. STOP HATE! It is imperative that we stop hate. Yes, one person cannot stop violence in the world, but we can do something pro-love, against fear, against hate in our neck of the woods. If we defend and/or save one life in our lifetime, oh goodness, it’d be a wonderful thing. Let’s try to do it. Just one, one at a time. Let’s teach our children love and compassion, not fear, not hate.

Let’s teach love and compassion

These are some reports about HATE GROUPS in the US since the Trump Era

White nationalist hate groups in the US have increased 55% throughout the Trump era, according to a new report by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), and a “surging” racist movement continues to be driven by “a deep fear of demographic change”.

“Though the experts appear to understand the threat, they remain hamstrung by the Trump administration, which has hired members of hate groups into high-level positions and has on its staff people like Stephen Miller, the senior policy adviser in the White House who has long been allied with anti-immigrant hate groups,” it said.

The law center said the number of hate groups rose by 7 percent last year to 1,020, a 30 percent jump from 2014. That broadly echoes other worrying developments, including a 30 percent increase in the number of hate crimes reported to the F.B.I. from 2015 through 2017 and a surge of right-wing violence that the Anti-Defamation League said had killed at least 50 people in 2018.

Kind and Compassionate Doctors Have Patients Who Heal Faster

compassion dra martha castro noriega tijuana mexico california america

Excellent current and updated medical knowledge makes a great medical doctor. This saves lives, it heals. When we have compassion and empathy towards our patients makes medical practice a wonderful rewarding experience.

Patients heal sooner when they are listened to, when they feel supported. The body responds better to medical treatments and surgical procedures. Recovery is faster.

Compassionate care helps us feel seen and validated by another, and this human connection registers in our autonomic nervous system, lowering blood pressure and supporting us physiologically as well as psychologically.

Fear, stress, helplessness, sadness, physical and emotional pain, embarrassment and isolation are aspects of the illness experience patients go through. Understanding these issues and showing true compassion and empathy towards our patients makes us better doctors with healthier/happier patients.

Overcome Eating Disorders and Obesity Be Happy! – Part 1

obesity disorder

OBESITY AND EATING DISORDERS INTRODUCTION

There is a classification about eating disorders in the American Medical Association (AMA), but obesity is not in it. Eating disorders are described as illnesses that are characterized by irregular eating habits and severe distress or concern about body weight or shape.

A.M.A. has recognized that being overweight or obese is a chronic disease and not simply due to poor self-control or a lack of will power. But A.M.A. has no legal-scientific worldwide authority to make this kind of decision.

Being a disease and/or an eating disorder has to be taken seriously, by the patients, their relatives and the medical doctors taking care of them. Obesity leads millions of people around the world to unwanted weight gain, and the roles that excess weight and fat maldistribution play in contributing to chronic diseases such as

  • Heart Disease

  • Diabetes,

  • Dyslipidemia,

  • Liver problems

  • Osteomuscular diseases,

  • Some types of cancer.

AVOID BASHING

Bashing overweight patient sufferers is not only ignorant but cruel. That is not the proper way to treat another human being.

Usually, any person who bullies another one about any issue, it’s because of fear and ignorance. In the health campaign against fat, we should avoid bashing obesity and idealizing thinness, which only fosters the self-destructive thought processes that characterizes eating disorders from anorexia to obesity.

Anorexics with jutting collarbones think they’re fat. Binge-eaters often think, after eating too much, that they’ve already done the damage so they might as well keep eating.

Apparently, people who overeat are not concerned about body weight or shape. Oh, but they are, they are just reacting in an opposite way to those who deprive themselves from food, like anorexic patients.

Severe obese people feel a lot of guilt after eating enormous amounts of food. They know they are hurting themselves but “there is something that doesn’t let me stop and all I want is to continue eating everything I see”-patients say often.

PREVENTION

Being overweight is the result of over-eating, of an obsession and addiction to eating big and low quality amounts of food. Tackling this problem when it starts is the best way to prevent morbid obesity,  which causes many medical problems and unhappiness to the ones suffering from it.

ADULT BODY MASS INDEX (BMI)

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a person’s weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in meters. A high BMI can be an indicator of high body fatness.

Adult Body Mass Index (BMI)
Body Mass Index (BMI) is a person’s weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in meters. A high BMI can be an indicator of high body fatness.

  • If your BMI is less than 18.5, it falls within the underweight range.

  • If your BMI is 18.5 to <25, it falls within the normal.

  • If your BMI is 25.0 to <30, it falls within the overweight range.

  • If your BMI is 30.0 or higher, it falls within the obese range.

Obesity is frequently subdivided into categories:

  • Class 1: BMI of 30 to < 35

  • Class 2: BMI of 35 to < 40

  • Class 3: BMI of 40 or higher. Class 3 obesity is sometimes categorized as “extreme” or “severe” obesity.
