These plants tend to store energy in the taproot and have hollow stems with ample greenery. The poisonous varieties can be difficult to tell from safe wild varieties – wild carrot, for example, is almost indistinguishable from hemlock.
Over the years, there has been some debate as to whether you can eat the green leaves. Yes, you can! Despite the presence of celery and carrot in the ‘Apiaceae’ (umbellifers), many other members are highly poisonous, but not the carrot. They are edible and highly nutritious, rich in protein, minerals and vitamins. The tops of the carrots are loaded with potassium which can make them bitter, so use of them in food is limited.
Carrots are an important vegetable because they are high in beta-carotene, a substance that is converted to Vitamin by our bodies. Beta-carotene is an antioxidant that may help to fight cancer, brain and heart disease. Carrots are also rich in fiber, and fiber is low in calories and fat. Fiber helps in weight loss because the body does not digest it, it simply passes through. Carrots come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. Most people like to grow the classic variety, which is long and slender.
COMPOSITION OF CARROT LEAVES
Carrot greens contain:
GROWING CARROT LEAVES
1. Till the soil down to a depth of six inches and work three inches of compost into it.
2. Now make a mound which is four to six inches high and about three inches wide.
3. Leave a furrow between this mound and the next one. This helps to make sure that the carrots have proper drainage and that they grow straight and tall.
4. Plant the seed along the top of the mound in a furrow that is ½ inch deep.
5. Keep the carrots weed free or the antioxidants will take all the water and nutrients and the carrots will be unable to thrive.
6. Carrots should be ready for harvest 70-80 days from planting. They should be 1 to 1.5 inches in diameter. Any bigger and they will be tough.
7. Loosen the dirt around the carrots before pulling to make sure the root does not break off.
8. To store carrots, remove the tops. Wash the carrots and store them in the bottom of the refrigerator. They will store longer if you place them in a plastic bag.
WHAT TO DO WITH CARROTS?
HEALTH BENEFITS OF EATING CARROTS AND THEIR LEAVES
The following are the health benefits of eating carrots and their leaves:
From their milk, skin, and meat, and somewhat easy maintenance, you can find that a goat can be a provider of multiple services for these households and more in certain parts of the world that lack certain conveniences that we have. It’s affordable, easy, and all it takes is a second of your time to make it happen.

Sound Healing includes five main areas:
The most basic concept of Sound Healing is that when you play consistent or coherent vibration it resonates that stability and peace into a person physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. It is not about a “higher vibration,” it is more about stability and peace. This is the natural state of every part of the body from the cell to heart and brain – consistency of vibration. Stress, fear, anxiety, and anger (to name a few) create chaotic vibrations that are not in alignment with natural consistent state of the body.
The second concept is that everything also has a resonant frequency that it prefers to vibrate at. Every part of the body is the healthiest when it is vibrating at its own natural resonant frequency. When you find that natural frequency of a part of the body, you can play that frequency into the body and entrain it back into its natural healthy state.
This next concept is that harmony also creates peace and stability. Harmonious musical intervals and chords also resonate their energy into the body at every level.
The most important concept is a smooth flow in music also creates peace and flow in a human being physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Smooth flow is defined as change that is not too abrupt – exactly like the flow commonly found in nature. Certain music resonates this consistent flow into the body – also create peace and stability, the state in which the body’s immune system flourishes.
It is well documented, both scientifically, clinically, and anecdotally that sound and music have positive physical, mental, emotional and spiritual impact on human beings, animals and plants.
There is very credible research and science that definitively demonstrate the positive physical effects of sound on humans. Traditional science have long described exactly how sound physically affects matter. There are many well-defined laws of physics around resonance, which is commonly defined as how one vibration affects another.
There is also credible research and science on how sound, music and rhythms affect humans mentally. EEG monitoring has been used to identify brain rhythms during which, scientists and researchers can see precisely how different sounds, rhythms, and music positively influence and transform these rhythms, helping improve specific human physiological functioning. It has been clearly established in the medical and scientific community and different rhythms are helpful for sleep, creativity, learning, focus, and thinking and many more important cognitive functions.
There is much research regarding how sound and music affect humans emotionally. We all know intuitively the power of music on our emotions. Music can get us excited, calm us down or even bring us to tears. Music is particularly useful for transforming depression, anxiety, anger, and fear irrespective of age, gender, culture, religious orientation or belief.
The science of emotions is now becoming more definitive as the California organization, HeartMath (https://www.heartmath.org), is well along in clinical research that shows how emotions manifest in human physiology. We can now see precisely which components of sound and music are affecting which emotions.
There is some science around how sound and music affects humans spiritually based on quantum physics. There is definitive research that proves that a consistent intention creates a change in any person – not just emotionally, but also physically. Even though attributes like the soul or spirit have not yet been proven by science, there are many anecdotal stories about people throughout the ages having what are referred to as “spiritual transformations” from both sound and music

APPLICATIONS OF QI GONG
Qi Gong goes back to Shamanistic practices in Chinese culture and then evolved incorporating both Buddhist and Taoist applications used to treat and prevent illness and for use in the martial arts.
In the US, Qi Gong is normally practiced in health clubs and fitness centers where adherents think about their breathing, concentration and focus points as they carry out a series of slow, careful and controlled movements. They focus a lot on the flow of Qi throughout their bodies, and in some cases, they concentrate on specific areas that need healing.
Around the world, there are currently thousands of forms of Qi Gong which are in practice, with each school having its own distinct style
FORMS OF QI GONG
There are many forms of Qi Gong practiced throughout the world, among which are:
SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE OF QI GONG
To the Chinese, we are not a body that has energy rather we are energy that has a body. It is interesting that Western Medicine is based on Newtonian Physics which looks at the body like a machine, but Chinese medicine is based more on Quantum Physics that states that when a matter is broken down into its smallest components (Quanta) all that is there is energy.
Only now is Western Medicine staring to understand that the mind and body are connected but that philosophy is an underlying factor in Chinese Medicine.
HEALTH BENEFITS OF QI GONG
The effectiveness of Qi Gong has been proven in China by its beneficial impact on the health of millions of people over thousands of years.
Reports from proponents of Qi Gong, says that anyone can benefit from it and improve their health, regardless of their background or expertise in the area. The objectives are to release a free energy flow when the Qi has been blocked by disease, injury, stress etc.
Because Qi Gong includes both dynamic and gentle techniques that can be practiced from standing, seated and supine postures, it is suitable for young and old. Practices can be tailored to individual needs making it an ideal aid to recovery from illness or injury. Qi Gong is a form of complementary medicine. It works well with other forms of therapy and should never be used as a substitute for necessary treatment by a physician.
The health benefits of Qi Gong include:
If everything is energy, that makes Qi Gong one of the most important practices we can embark on to plug in, recharge and energize our lives! It is my personal belief we should all have the practice to help us tap into our authentic selves and Qi Gong can be a tool to open the door to miraculous wonders.
