This weekend I had the pleasure of visiting Sajama in Bolivia, near the border of Chile. A mountain (ex volcano) with its near by towns, springs, geysers and hot springs.  A cold place reaching somewhere in the minus, the hot sulfur springs was a delicious experience and escape.

Apparently the benefits of bathing in sulfur and or ingesting in crystal form include

-Increasing enzyme production within bodily glands and improving resistance to illness
-Increasing flexibility in muscle tissue (yep as a yogi could benefit from that)
-Increasing blood circulation
-Reducing muscle inflammation and promoting muscle healing
-Promoting the healthy growth of hair and fingernails
-Discouraging the growth of cancer cells through oxygenation (Bingo!)
-Reversing osteoporosis, Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease
-Promoting healthy skin production and reducing wrinkles
-Regulating insulin production
-Improving colon function and eliminating colonic parasites

A Break to Help the Creative Mind

One thing a lot of us forget and one thing for sure I know I do is I forget to change my surroundings, go for a walk, put in new oxygen into my body and just clear the mind. It has been a while since I breathed real clean air, seen blue cloudless skies and beautiful mountains in their natural surroundings. I think it's easier than it seems, there is always nature lurking, parks to be walked, paths to be discovered even if you live in a city; I know this to be true living in New York and London - there are hidden gems out there. Just mental effort is needed to train yourself to explore. Which reminds me of a great book I read whilst in New York: Hidden Cities by Moses Gate. I am going to make an aim to take a walk somewhere new each week and away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Over and out.
