     as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, or high blood pressure, ask your physician or health care
     provider about what type and amount of physical activity is right for you. By going slow and
gradually, you won’t overdo it and you won’t experience the common “burnout factor.”

             Salmon           is known to be very high
              in essential fatty acids, such as omega-3,
              which is great for our brain. Wild salmon is
              preferred over all other types of fish, since
              they are raised in a rugged environment,
which ensures only the highest quality fish, plus it

  Phone Book
T  aking an ordinary phone book, Alex Queral carves a face into this object of so many
faceless names. With the book, a very sharp X-ACTO® knife, a little pot of acrylic medium
to set detail areas and a great deal of talent, Queral literally peels away the pages like
the skin of an onion to reveal the portrait within. Once the carving is complete, he will
often apply a black wash to enhance the features and then seal the entire book with
acrylic to preserve the work. However, he never loses the line registration; and the book
remains quite pliable.

Turn the page to see and believe. It’s simply amazing!

No Breakfast
People who do not take breakfast are going to
have a lower blood sugar level. This leads to an
insufficient supply of nutrients to the brain caus-
ing brain degeneration.
It causes hardening of the brain arteries, leading
to a decrease in mental power.

It causes multiple brain shrinkage and may lead
to Alzheimer disease.

High Sugar consumption
Too much sugar will interrupt the absorption of
proteins and nutrients causing malnutrition and
may interfere with brain development.

This book started as a personal project
2007, and was soon published from
a Japanese bookstore “Utrecht”. It’s
a flipbook, but rather than seeing
animation, it creates a 3D rainbow
in your hand. Since being published
it has been featured on Japanese TV,
Newspapers, major news & blogsites
like yahoo news, coolhunting and
fffffound. This book won the
NY ADC silver cube.

     A new concept flip book that will create a 3D rainbow instead of an animation. Really cool! You can
     buy it online from several selected book stores, Utrecht(JPN),
     Stereohype(UK), Printed Matter(US) The 36-page book has an
     image of the color spectrum against a black background on each page, creating the illusion of an arced
     rainbow hovering above the pages as the pages flip by. If you are resourceful enough, heck, you can
     make one of your own.
Stressed? Anxious? In Conflict?
                                  I Can Help.
                                  Life can be challenging. You lie awake at night wondering how to
                                  handle all the pressure. Your emotions swing wildly – usually more
                                  down than up. Tears surge at odd times. You feel suffocated by
                                  the heaviness in your chest.

                                  Perhaps there’s conflict in a relationship with your spouse, your
                                  boss, or someone you’re close to. The strife and negative feelings
                                  are draining you.

                                  You know you need help. You can’t fix things on your own. Getting
                                  help shows your courage to confront your challenges and grow
                                  into a stronger person – physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

                                  I provide a safe and confidential environment for clients to express
                                  their feelings and emotions so they can regain control of their

                                  relationship. You’ll once again live life the way you wish it to be.

        5                     the Risk of

                 esearch conducted in 52 countries reveals several con-
                 trollable risk factors attribute to 90% of all heart attacks.
                 Previously, it was believed only half of the heart attacks
                 were caused by factors such as smoking and choles-
                 terol. Today, most heart attacks can be pinpointed to
     one or more of the risk factors mentioned below. These factors are
     neither gender specific nor related to a particular ethnic group.

     1. Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle
         Smoking changes the viscosity of blood. This can
     potentially lead to clumping in the blood vessels that
     supply the heart. A study states that smoking inhibits vita-
     min and mineral uptake, depletes levels of vitamin C, and
     creates a toxic internal environment. Giving up smoking
     can help avoid cancer and lower the risk of heart disease.
         Vitamin C is a highly effective antioxidant; it protects
     molecules in the body from damage

     2. Watch Cholesterol Intake
         It is important to not only control your
     cholesterol, but to decrease fat intake when
     faced with the risk of cardiovascular dis-
     eases such as heart attack, stroke, and
     other disorders caused by fatty depos-

its of plaque in the artery walls. “Bad” saturated fats (butter, cheese, red meat, fast foods)
increases your blood cholesterol. The body has its own daily quota for cholesterol pro-

3. Control High Blood Pressure
      It is found that half of all people who suffer a first-time heart attack and two-thirds of
first-time stroke victims, had moderate to high blood pressure. If left untreated, high blood
pressure can increase the risk of atherosclerosis, aneurysms, loss of vision, and kidney
failure. Normal blood pressure is considered to be 120/80. Experts have advocated eating
less salt as a way of controlling blood pressure plus mineral-rich foods and herbs like folic
acid, and branched chain amino acids are known to naturally help control blood pressure.

                      4. Reduce Unnecessary Stress
                             Stress if left unchecked can have a negative impact on both
                           physical and mental health. 80% of all health related problems
                           are attributed to stress. Stress slows the body’s metabolism thus
                          allows fat to linger in the blood advancing the development of

                     5. Diet and Exercise
                     Research conducted around the world showed waist circumferences
               of > 34 inches in men and > 32 inches in women increases the risk of car-
             diovascular disease. It is a measure of abdominal fat, which is most closely
           associated with heart attacks.” Walking is not only relaxing but a great, low-
          impact way to lose weight.
