Maybe Time Management Isn't So Great After All

For years, we've been told that time management is the solution to all our problems. If we can successfully prioritize our tasks, focus, make lists, delegate, and complete tasks, we'll be able to have more free time and less stress.

There are thousands of books, apps, and tools devoted to helping us get a handle on the constant mountain of work and communication cascading toward us. We're told to get our inboxes to zero, prioritize our work according to specific systems, and set S.M.A.R.T. goals.

Clay Clark makes this comment (which is all too common):

Have you ever noticed some people are able to stay organized while getting a massive quantity of work accomplished, while others appear to be busy but never actually produce results? Time management is the key to becoming a successful entrepreneur.

But is it possible that time management isn't all it's cracked up to be? Think of how many of your conversations go like this:

Friend: Hey, how's it going?

You: Man, I'm so busy. I feel like there's never enough time!

Friend: Yeah, I know. I'm hustling all day long! I'm exhausted.

It's strange, right? If the objective of time management is more free time, why do we always feel so rushed? Why is there never enough time in the day? Why is stress the constant anthem of every student, mom, employee, and supervisor? Isn't proper time management supposed to solve these problems?

Maybe all the tools, apps, and books aren't the solution we thought they were.

Oliver Burkeman puts it like this :

And yet the truth is that more often than not, techniques designed to enhance one's personal productivity seem to exacerbate the very anxieties they were meant to allay. The better you get at managing time, the less of it you feel that you have. Even when people did successfully implement Inbox Zero, it didn't reliably bring calm. Some interpreted it to mean that every email deserved a reply, which only shackled them more firmly to their inboxes...Others grew jumpy at the thought of any messages cluttering an inbox that was supposed to stay pristine, and so ended up checking more frequently.

So what exactly is the problem? Why isn't time management making us happier?

Here are 5 reasons.

It Creates Unnecessary Anxiety


One of the cornerstones of time management is appropriately handling the constant tasks that come your way. Depending on which productivity system you're using (Getting Things Done, The Four Quadrants, etc.), you must handle every task in a specific way.

For example, with Getting Things Done, everything must be captured, clarified, organized, reflected upon, and then engaged. While this may seem simple, it can quickly get overwhelming when put into action. In theory, everything is to follow these five steps, including emails, phone calls, memos, projects, meetings, grocery lists, home projects, and anything else you may encounter in life.

Trying to apply this methodology on a grand scale can quickly turn into a full-time job in and of itself. This in turn can create massive amounts of anxiety.

Additionally, if you're "effectively" managing your time, your task list will grow at a terrifying pace. Every day you'll find yourself confronted with an enormous list of things that must be done, and the thought of trying to accomplish all that can send you into a panic.

It's important to realize that though time management is a helpful skill, it shouldn't rule your life. There will be times when things simply slip through your system. You have limitations, just like everyone else. Even the best intentions fail. Time management can be a helpful tool but can create anxiety if you're not careful.

It Creates A Never Ending Cycle Of Feeling Like A Failure


The promise of time management is more freedom. Unfortunately, one of the side effects of good time management can be a constant, nagging sense of failure.

The more you're able to wrangle your tasks into the appropriate categories and systems, the bigger your task list becomes. The bigger your to-do list, the more you're aware of all that you're not getting done. At the end of every day, you're confronted with a lengthy list of things that you failed to accomplish.

The end result is that you constantly feel like an underachiever. Like you should be able to get more checked off each day. Failure constantly haunts you.

This shouldn't be the case. It's essential to remember that your life isn't defined by what you accomplish. You're aren't superhuman. You have energy limits, time limits, and frankly, things that are more important than work (family, friends, etc.). Time management systems evaluate success and failure only by tasks completed. Life is about more than that.

It Can Create More Work


Parkinson's Law states that a project will expand to fill the time available. In other words, the more time that you have available, the more work will fill that time. This applies directly to time management.

The more effective you are at getting things done, the more likely you'll have more work sent your way. We see this most clearly with email. The better you are at responding, the more responses you'll get in return. Your email load expands exponentially based on how quickly you clear emails from your inbox. It's a never ending cycle and reaching Inbox Zero is only possible for about 10 seconds.

Pareto's Law , which states that 80% of output comes from 20% of input also applies perfectly here. It's not uncommon for a few people to do an inordinate amount of work in any organization. The 20% usually are the most effective at getting things done, which in turn means that more work is assigned to them.

Obviously, the solution is not to do less work. It is crucial, however, to learn to say no when people want to keep assigning things to you. Once things begin to compete with higher priorities, it's time to slow down.

It Takes You Out Of The Moment


Theoretically, time management is supposed to help you enjoy every moment more. In fact, one of the core tenets of the Getting Things Done system was that your mind would be like water, allowing you to focus 100% on the task at hand. You get all your work done and then you stop and enjoy the other aspects of life, like family, church, friends, sports, and a good cup of coffee.

Unfortunately, it doesn't work that way. With a constantly expanding task list always on your mind, it's incredibly easy to get pulled out of the moment and begin pondering how you're going to get your next thing done.

Instead of focusing on playing with your kids or spending quality time with your spouse, you're thinking of the twenty remaining things on your to-do list. Instead of keeping you in the moment, your mind is pulled in 40 different places.

When thinking about productivity and time management, it's necessary to put them in their place. Work isn't life and life isn't work. Fewer things are more important than being in the moment with important people. And fewer things will make you more stressed out than constantly reflecting on your endless checklists. Don't throw away your checklists, but learn to keep them clearly separate from other important parts of your life.

It Can Actually Cause You To Focus On The Wrong Objectives


The ironic thing about time management systems is that they can help you get a lot of the wrong things done. They can cause you to become so focused on keeping everything systematized and checked off that you miss the bigger picture. It's a missing the forest for the trees sort of scenario.

Author Cal Newport talks about his struggle with productivity systems :

I was good at full capture and regular review, and, accordingly, was quite organized. This was a good time in my life to ask me to submit a form or tackle a complicated logistical process. You could be confident that I would capture, process, and then accomplish it.

But I was missing the intense and obsessive wrangling with the hard problems of my field - the type of habit that made people in my line of work exceptional. My commitment to GTD had me instead systematically executing tasks, one by one, like an assembly line worker "cranking widgets" (to use a popular Allen aphorism).

I didn't need to be cranking widgets. I needed to instead be crazily focused.

If you spend all your time focused on getting small, unimportant things done simply because they're on your checklist, you won't accomplish anything truly meaningful. Time management systems can be helpful when it comes to organizing the various tasks that come your way, but if you're not careful they can put your attention on the unimportant. It's essential to ensure that you're always focused on the projects that will truly make a difference, both in your workplace and life in general.

The Solution?

The solution isn't to abandon time management altogether. Rather, it must be used appropriately. Productivity systems are helpful servants but terrible masters. If your life is dictated by your system, you'll miss out on the good things in life. You may get more things done, but you'll also be anxious, constantly busy, distracted, and focusing on the wrong objectives.

Time management skills aren't the be all end all. They're tools. Use them as such.

43 Os códigos que permitem saber se o seu celular está sendo espionado 17

Não importa se o seu telefone seja Android ou IOS: se você digitar uma série de códigos especiais na tela, poderá acessar funções secretas, que são comumente usadas por desenvolvedores e testadores. Algumas dessas opções são muito técnicas para serem utilizáveis, mas outras são bem interessantes, permitindo que você conheça uma série de dados ocultos e saiba até mesmo se o seu aparelho está grampeado.cellular-image.jpg

Para acessar essas funções, basta digitar o código no teclado da tela e clicar no botão que faz a chamada. Você visualizará automaticamente as opções.


Esse código mostra se as chamadas, dados de terceiros e SMSs do seu celular foram desviados para outro aparelho. Quem quer ver essas informações? Qualquer um que seja excessivamente ciumento (a) para espionar tudo que você faz.


Esse código faz a mesma coisa que o primeiro, mas também mostra para qual número as chamadas foram desviadas. Em geral, todos os celulares têm ao menos uma chamada desviada para nossa companhia telefônica, em casos em que não há cobertura da área. É aquele famoso 'o número que você discou não está disponível'; é o que acontece quando seu aparelho não tem cobertura para receber a chamada, então não entre em pânico.


Esse é o código universal para desativar todos os encaminhamentos de chamadas, mensagens e dados. O propósito mais útil para essa função é quando estamos em outro país e começamos a usar as taxas de roaming. Quando utilizado, esse código evita que sejamos cobrados por chamadas que caem na caixa postal.

*#*#197328640#*#* (Android)

Esse código é extremamente interessante. Ele abrirá uma tela chamada Field Test, uma ferramenta que mostra informação técnica detalhada sobre as antenas às quais o celular está conectado no momento.

Com essa informação, você pode saber se alguém está tentando rastrear seu celular. Para tanto, é preciso baixar o aplicativo Netmonitor. 

Primeiro, vá até a sessão UMTS Cell Environment, entrando depois em UMTS info. Feito isso, copie todos os números que aparecem na sessão Cell ID. Esses dados pertencem às antenas as quais nosso celular está conectado.

O segundo passo consiste em ir ao menu principal, pressionar a guia MM info e Serving PLMN. Localize os números que estão em Local Area Code e copie-os.

Em seguida, entre no site OpenCellID e cole os dados para encontrar um mapa das antenas às quais seu celular está conectadoSe os códigos se referem a antenas fixas, não tem problema. Mas se a antena estiver localizada na rua, em uma van, por exemplo, pode se tratar de alguém praticando espionagem.

É claro que também pode ser um veículo utilizado pela companhia telefônica para melhorar a cobertura. Isso acontece quando há alguma transmissão de futebol ou de festivais de música, e com esta grande concentração de pessoas, existe um pico de acessos.

Cientista americano choca ateus ao confirmar que a oração tem o poder de curar doenças após estudar 40 mil casos!

A oração pode curar, sim! E quem diz isso não somos nós! É a ciência!
O dr. Andrew Newberg, professor da Universidade Thomas Jefferson, nos Estados Unidos, realizou um estudo de ressonância magnética e descobriu que a oração e a meditação são realmente poderosíssimas.  Com informações do site:

Quando iniciamos essas práticas regularmente, o nosso cérebro aumenta a atividade dos lobos frontais e da área de linguagem, da mesma forma que acontece com a comunicação.

Esse esforço deve ser entendido como um treino físico para a mente, que resulta na cura de várias doenças e até no desenvolvimento cerebral.

O bom de tudo é que não precisa de ser um monge ou uma freira para desfrutar dos benefícios que a oração e a meditação podem oferecer.

Para chegar à conclusão de que essas práticas realmente são importantes, o dr. Andrew fez a seguinte experiência:

Selecionou alguns idosos com problemas de memória para observá-los antes, durante e depois das meditações e orações.

A análise foi feita diariamente, por 12 minutos, durante 8 semanas.
O resultado foi muito positivo em relação aos benefícios que a oração e a meditação podem oferecer à nossa saúde.

O mais interessante é que o dr. Andrew afirma que nosso cérebro realmente tem estrutura para receber essas experiências especiais com facilidade, independentemente da religião.
Outro estudo, publicado na revista Câncer, da Sociedade Americana do Cancro, provou que pacientes com fortes crenças espirituais reagem melhor ao tratamento e têm menos sintomas.

A análise foi realizada com 40.000 pacientes.

Pesquisadores da Moffitt Cancer Center, na Flórida, perceberam que os que acreditavam numa força superior tinham mais saúde física e mental do que os incrédulos.
Essas pessoas também têm melhor convivência com o meio social.
O que podemos concluir com tudo isso é que a crença e a fé nos tornam pessoas melhores.

E que o ser humano apoia-se em três pilares: físico, mental e espiritual.
Isso não é maravilhoso? Com informações do site: Fonte:

42 Intestino e depressão Uma questão de limpeza 13
Views : 1703
Date add : 11/02/2016

Talvez você ainda não saiba mas, o principal órgão do nosso corpo que tem a ver com a  nossa saúde tanto física quanto emocional é o intestino. Recentemente o médico americano Michael D. Gershon, da Universidade de Columbia, em Nova York, confirmou que o intestino tem um sistema nervoso autônomo com uma vasta rede de 100 milhões de neurônios e neurotransmissores de montão.

Uma coisa muito interessante é que 90% de toda a serotonina que anda pelo nosso corpo é produzida lá, nos intestinos. Também é nos intestinos que nós produzimos 80% de todo o nosso potencial imunitário, para além do hormônio do crescimento.

Então, uma conclusão direta é: trate bem do seu intestino, mantenha-o trabalhando sem atravancos, alimente-se saudavelmente que você terá saúde tanto emocional quanto física.

"Uma noite mal dormida, excesso de bebida, fumo e muito açúcar podem interferir no funcionamento do intestino, já que estes fatores modificam o PH intestinal e aceleram o envelhecimento, a falta de vitalidade e podem ainda agravar os quadros de depressão", afirma a psicoterapeuta Adriana Splendore, que também é terapeuta ortomolecular e contou essas coisas em um artigo seu.

Sabendo disso, uma vez mais falamos aqui que você tem mesmo de cuidar de ter uma alimentação rica em água de boa qualidade e fibras orgânicas, que ajudam na limpeza do intestino, fora aportarem com vasta gama de minerais e vitaminas essenciais.

Alimentos que fazem bem ao intestino

Alimentos fundamentais para a saúde do intestino são a  aveia, o inhame, o arroz integral e a linhaça .

E, "para aumentar os níveis cerebrais de serotonina precisamos ingerir alimentos que contenham os minerais Cálcio e Magnésio, os quais estimulam a produção de triptofano, o aminoácido precursor da serotonina", diz Adriana Splendore.

Ai é que entram as boas fontes de cálcio: requeijão, queijos magros, brócolis e gergelim.

E as fontes de magnésio: tofu, soja, caju, salmão, espinafre, aveia e arroz integral.

Mantenha seu intestino limpo assim

* Comendo de 8 a 10 porções de frutas por semana  - escolha frutas com fibra, mas não só.
* Grãos integrais 2-3 vezes por semana.
* Alimentos que limpam o cólon e são ricos em fibras e proteínas.
* Comendo menos doces e gorduras.
* Use sementes de linhaça polvilhada em todo lado.
* Fazer atividade física diária é fundamental - caminhe, pelo menos 30 minutos, ou jogue bola, ou dance, ou ande de bicicleta. Escolha o que mais gosta, e faça.
* Beba água, água pura, chá, suco e, de novo...água.

Uma alcunha (no Brasil e na Madeira também se usa o termo apelido que, em Portugal, designa nome de família) é uma designação não-oficial criada através de um relacionamento interpessoal, geralmente informal, para identificar uma determinada pessoa,objeto ou lugar, de acordo com uma característica que se destaque positiva ou negativamente, de forma a atribuir-lhe um valor específico.

São tambémm sinônimos de alcunha as palavras apodoantonomásiacognome e epíteto. A designação apelido pode causar potencialmente alguma confusão de sentido, visto que em sua origem significa o nome de família, ou seja, o que no Brasil chama-se desobrenome, embora na linguagem técnica a palavra mantenha seu significado original.

São fontes de inspiração para os apodos alguns ofícios (padeiroleiteiroroceiro) e o local de origem (alemãojaponêsbaianocarioca). Em Portugal, no passado, diversos apelidos (nomes de família) tiveram esta origem.

Algumas alcunhas comuns têm normalmente origem em características físicas do indivíduo, como aleijadinhomancocaolhoquatro-olhos. Deve-se considerar ainda que as alcunhas podem prejudicar psicologicamente o seu alvo, quando assumem caráter pejorativo, evidenciando uma característica que o mesmo desaprove, como no citado exemplo caolho, dentre outros.

39 Coaching / Training 26
Views : 1014
Date add : 06/16/2016


The first use of the term coaching to mean an instructor or trainer arose around 1830 in Oxford University slang for a tutor who "carries" a student through an exam.[3] Coaching thus has been used in language to describe the process used to transport people from where they are to where they want to be. The first use of the term in relation to sports came in 1861.[3]

Historically the evolution of coaching has been influenced by many fields of study including LGAT such as "est", personal developmentadult education, the Human Potential Movementpsychology, and leadership studies. Since the mid-1990s, coaching has developed into a more independent discipline and professional associations such as the Association for Coaching, the International Association of Coaching, the International Coach Federation, and the European Coaching and Mentoring Council have helped develop a set of training standards.[4]


Professional coaching uses a range of communication skills (such as targeted restatements, listening, questioning, clarifying etc.) to help clients shift their perspectives and thereby discover different approaches to achieve their goals.[5] These skills can be used in almost all types of coaching. In this sense, coaching is a form of "meta-profession" that can apply to supporting clients in any human endeavor, ranging from their concerns in health, personal, professional, sport, social, family, political, spiritual dimensions, etc. There may be some overlap between certain types of coaching activities.[6]

ADHD coaching

The concept of ADHD coaching was first introduced in 1994 by psychiatrists Edward M. Hallowell and John J. Ratey in their book Driven to Distraction.[7] ADHD coaching is a specialized type of life coaching that uses specific techniques designed to assist individuals with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder. The goal of ADHD coaching is to mitigate the effects of executive function deficit, which is a typical impairment for people with ADHD.[8]

Coaches work with clients to help them better manage time, organize, set goals and complete projects.[9] In addition to helping clients understand the impact ADHD has had on their lives, coaches can help clients develop "work-around" strategies to deal with specific challenges, and determine and use individual strengths. Coaches also help clients get a better grasp of what reasonable expectations are for them as individuals, since people with ADHD "brain wiring" often seem to need external mirrors for accurate self-awareness about their potential despite their impairment.[10]

Unlike psychologists or psychotherapists, ADHD coaches do not provide any therapy or treatment: their focus is only on daily functioning and behaviour aspects of the disorder.[11] The ultimate goal of ADHD coaching is to help clients develop an "inner coach", a set of self-regulation and reflective planning skills to deal with daily life challenges.[12]

A 2010 study from Wayne State University evaluated the effectiveness of ADHD coaching on 110 students with ADHD. The research team concluded that the coaching "was highly effective in helping students improve executive functioning and related skills as measured by the Learning and Study Strategies Inventory (LASSI)."[13] Yet, not every ADHD person needs a coach and not everyone can benefit from using a coach.[14]

Business and executive coaching

Business coaching is a type of human resource development. It provides positive support, feedback and advice on an individual or group basis to improve personal effectiveness in the business setting. Business coaching is also called executive coaching,[15]corporate coaching or leadership coaching.

Coaches help their clients advance towards specific professional goals. These include career transition, interpersonal and professional communication, performance management, organizational effectiveness, managing career and personal changes, developing executive presence, enhancing strategic thinking, dealing effectively with conflict, and building an effective team within an organization. An industrial organizational psychologist is one example of executive coach.

Business coaching is not restricted to external experts or providers. Many organizations expect their senior leaders and middle managers to coach their team members to reach higher levels of performance, increased job satisfaction, personal growth, and career development. Research studies suggest that executive coaching has a positive impact on workplace performance.[16]

In some countries, there is no certification or licensing required to be a business or executive coach, and membership of a coaching organization is optional. Further, standards and methods of training coaches can vary widely between coaching organizations. Many business coaches refer to themselves as consultants, a broader business relationship than one which exclusively involves coaching


Career coaching

Career coaching focuses on work and career and is similar to career counseling. Career coaching is not to be confused with life coaching, which concentrates on personal development. Another common term for a career coach is career guide.

Christian coaching

Christian coaching is common among religious organizations and churches.[citation needed] A Christian coach is not a pastor or counselor (although he may also be qualified in those disciplines), but rather someone who has been professionally trained to address specific coaching goals from a distinctively Christian or biblical perspective.

Although various training courses exist, there is no single regulatory body for Christian coaching. Some of the Christian coaching programs are based on the works of Henry CloudJohn Townsend, and John C. Maxwell.


Main article: Co-coaching

Co-coaching is a structured practice of coaching between peers with the goal of learning improved coaching techniques.

Financial coaching

Financial coaching is a relatively new form of coaching that focuses on helping clients overcome their struggle to attain specific financial goals and aspirations they have set for themselves. Financial coaching is a one-on-one relationship in which the coach works to provide encouragement and support aimed at facilitating attainment of the client's financial plans. A financial coach, also called money coach, typically focuses on helping clients to restructure and reduce debt, reduce spending, develop saving habits, and develop financial discipline. In contrast, the term financial adviser refers to a wider range of professionals who typically provide clients with financial products and services. Although early research links financial coaching to improvements in client outcomes, much more rigorous analysis is necessary before any causal linkages can be established.[18]

Health and wellness coaching

Main article: Health coaching

Health coaching is becoming recognized as a new way to help individuals "manage" their illnesses and conditions, especially those of a chronic nature.[19] The coach will use special techniques, personal experience, expertise and encouragement to assist the coachee in bringing his/her behavioral changes about, while aiming for lowered health risks and decreased healthcare costs.[20]

The National Society of Health Coaches (NSHC) has differentiated the term health coach from wellness coach.[20] According to the NSHC, health coaches are qualified "to guide those with acute or chronic conditions and/or moderate to high health risk", and wellness coaches provide guidance and inspiration "to otherwise 'healthy' individuals who desire to maintain or improve their overall general health status".[20]

Homework coaching

Main article: Homework coach

Homework coaching focuses on equipping a student with the study skills required to succeed academically. This approach is different from regular tutoring which typically seeks to improve a student's performance in a specific subject.[21]

Life coaching

Life coaching is the process of helping people identify and achieve personal goals. Although life coaches may have studied counseling psychology or related subjects, a life coach does not act as a therapistcounselor, or health care provider, and psychological intervention lies outside the scope of life coaching.

Relationship coaching

Relationship coaching is the application of coaching to personal and business relationships.[22]

Sports coaching

Main article: Coach (sport)

In sports, a coach is an individual that provides supervision and training to the sports team or individual players. Sports coaches are involved in administration, athletic training, competition coaching, and representation of the team and the players.

Coaching ethics and standards

One of the challenges in the field of coaching is upholding levels of professionalism, standards and ethics. To this end, coaching bodies and organizations have codes of ethics and member standards.[23] However, because these bodies are not regulated, and because coaches do not need to belong to such a body, ethics and standards are variable in the field.[24][25][non-primary source needed] In February 2016, the Association for Coaching and the European Mentoring and Coaching Council launched a "Global Code of Ethics" for the entire industry; individuals, associations, and organizations are invited to become signatories to it.[26][third-party source needed]


Critics see life coaching as akin to psychotherapy but without restrictions, oversight, regulation, or established ethical policies.[27][28][29] There are no state regulation or licensing requirements for coaches. Due to lack of oversight and regulation, the vast majority of life and wellness coaches have no formal training or certification.[30]

With the growing popularity of coaching, many colleges and universities now offer coach training programs that are accredited by the International Coach Federation (ICF).[31] Some courses offer a life coach certificate after just a few days of training,[32] but such courses, if they are accredited at all, are considered "à la carte" training programs, "which may or may not offer start to finish coach training," according to the ICF.[33] "All-inclusive" training programs accredited by the ICF require a minimum of 125 student contact hours, 10 hours of mentor coaching and a performance evaluation process.[34] This is very little training in comparison to some other helping professionals: for example, licensure as a counseling psychologist in the State of California requires 3,000 hours of supervised professional experience.[35]

36 Cure-se da dor de garganta sem o uso de antibioticos 13

Date add : 03/06/2016

A garganta é uma porta de entrada de vírus e bactérias para o nosso organismo.

E, quando a imunidade cai, ela é uma das primeiras partes do corpo a sentir.

É  por isso que a garganta é vítima frequente de dores e irritações, que podem estar associadas a uma gripe, amigdalite, faringite e laringite.

Outro motivo para a dor de garganta é a ação irritante do cigarro e da poluição.

O acompanhamento médico é muito importante.

Mas, antes de usar agressivos antibióticos, tente, logo no início da inflamação, a cura com estas receita caseiras:


O gengibre e o abacaxi tem ótimas propriedades anti-inflamatórias.

Por isso este suco proporciona alívio imediato nas dores e irritações de garganta.

Eis a receita: 1 pedaço de aproximadamente 3 cm de gengibre, 1 xícara de abacaxi, 150 mL se água.

Bata os ingredientes no liquidificador.

Coe e tome o suco na hora.


Mais dois poderosos ingredientes.

Use 200 gramas de mel de boa qualidade (de preferência, orgânico), 2 colheres (sopa) de açafrão-da-terra em pó ou ralado e uma pitada de gengibre em pó/ralado ou de pimenta-do-reino moída na hora.

Misture bem os ingredientes.

Guarde essa mistura num pote de vidro limpo e bem tampado.

Assim que você notar os primeiros sintomas de gripe, virose ou qualquer outra infecção (como as na garganta), consumir o medicamento da seguinte maneira:

Dia 1 - tome uma colher (sopa) a cada hora

Dia 2 - tome meia colher (sopa) a cada 2 horas

Dia 3 - tome meia colher (sopa) três vezes durante o dia


Este chá mistura três potentes medicamentos naturais.

Ele melhora a imunidade e funciona melhor como um preventivo.

Por isso deve ser tomado por toda a temporada de frio.

Para fazer este chá, você vai precisar de meio litro de água, 2 colheres (sopa) de gengibre ralado e meio  limão com casca.

Ferva a água e acrescente o gengibre e o limão.

consuma duas xícaras por dia (o chá deve estar morno).


O gargarejo com água morna e sal, várias vezes por dia, reduz a inflamação na garganta e solta o catarro.

A receita é simples: meia colher (chá) de sal em 1 copo de água.

Se o gosto salgado ficar muito forte para você,  use um pouquinho de mel na mistura.

Nunca engula o líquido.

É essencial cuspi-lo, pois ele está cheio de bactérias.

Hipertensos não devem usar esta receita.

37 Water cure (therapy) 13

This article is about a form of therapy used in the 18th and 19th century. 

water cure in the therapeutic sense is a course of medical treatment by hydrotherapy.[1]


One form of water therapy, advocated by some  alternative medicine  proponents, is the consumption of a gutful of water upon waking in order to "cleanse the bowel". A litre to a litre-and-a-half is the common amount ingested. This water therapy, also known as Indian, Chinese, or Japanese Water Therapy, is claimed to have a wide range of health benefits, or at least no adverse effects. [2] [3]  Advocates of water therapy claim that application of water therapy at first will cause multiple bowel movements until the body adjusts to the increased amount of fluid. [2]  While ingesting about a litre-and-a-half of water is generally considered harmless, excessive consumption of water can lead to  water intoxication , an urgent and dangerous medical condition. [4]


In the mid-19th century there was a popular revival of the  water cure   in Europe, the United Kingdom, and the United States. [5]   During this time the term   water cure   was used synonymously with   hydropathy , the term by which hydrotherapy was known in the 19th century and early 20th century. [6] [7] [a]   However, the therapeutic use of water precedes this popular revival. Its use has been recorded in ancient   Egyptian ,   Greek   and   Roman   civilizations. [5] [8] [9] [10] [11]

Two seminal publications preceded the populist revival of the 19th century. Firstly, Sir John Floyer, a physician of Lichfield, was struck by the remedial use of certain springs by the neighbouring peasantry, investigated the history of cold bathing and published a book on the subject in 1702.[8] The book ran through six editions within a few years and the translation was largely drawn upon by Dr J. S. Hahn (1696-1773) of Silesia in a work published in 1738.[12]

Secondly, a 1797 publication by Dr James Currie of Liverpool on the use of hot and cold water in the treatment of fever and other illness, with a fourth edition published in 1805, not long before his death.[13] It was also translated into German by Michaelis (1801) andHegewisch (1807). It was highly popular and first placed the subject on a scientific basis. Hahn's writings had meanwhile created much enthusiasm among his countrymen, societies having been everywhere formed to promote the medicinal and dietetic use of water; and in 1804 Professor E.F.C. Oertel of Anspach republished them and quickened the popular movement by unqualified commendation of water drinking as a remedy for all diseases.[14][15]

In the 19th century, a popular revival followed the application of hydrotherapy around 1829, by Vincent Priessnitz, a peasant farmer in Gräfenberg, then part of the Austrian Empire.[5][16] This revival was continued by others such as Captain R. T. Claridge, who introduced hydropathy into England in the early 1840s via writings and lectures, Sir William James Erasmus Wilson (1809-1884), James Manby Gully and Edward Johnson,[disambiguation needed] and Sebastian Kneipp.[7][9][16][17][18]

Other popular forms of water therapy included the sea-water treatment of Richard Russell, the contemporary version of which is thalassotherapy. This however was never known or marketed as water cure in the sense that became synonymous with hydropathy, now hydrotherapy. Rather, Russell's efforts have been credited with playing a role, along with broader social movements, in the populist "sea side mania of the second half of the eighteenth century",[19] which itself was of some significance, with some activities reminiscent of modern-day of modern day spas. Indeed,

in Europe, the application of water in the treatment of fevers and other maladies had, since the seventeenth century, been consistently promoted by a number of medical writers. In the eighteenth century, taking to the waters became a fashionable pastime for the wealthy classes who decamped to resorts around Britain and Europe to cure the ills of over-consumption. In the main, treatment in the heyday of the British spa consisted of sense and sociability: promenading, bathing, and the repetitive quaffing of foul-tasting mineral waters.[20]

The spa movement itself became especially popular during the 19th century when health spas devoted to the "cure" were well-known medical institutions for the upper-class, especially those with lingering or chronic illness.[20] Spas and other therapeutic baths are somewhat synonymous with the term balneotherapy . Many scientific studies into the effectiveness of balneotherapy are said to suffer from methodological flaws, admitting no firm conclusions.[21][22]

Water cure practitioners ranged from qualified doctors to self-taught enthusiasts. For example, a famous water cure in Malvern, Worcestershire was begun in 1842 by Dr James Manby Gully using Malvern water.[23][24] Famous patients of Gully included Charles DarwinCharles DickensThomas CarlyleFlorence NightingaleLord Tennyson and Samuel Wilberforce.[25] Conversely, Henry Wirz, the only Confederate soldier executed in the aftermath of the American Civil War for war crimes, was said to have been a self-taught water-cure specialist. After emigrating to America from Switzerland, he is reported to have worked as a water-cure practitioner throughout New England.
