Is It Acceptable for the Christian Women to Get Breast Implants?

happy woman

The Christian women face many modern issues in today's world. One of the trickiest issues is whether or not cosmetic surgery is appropriate since it alters a body that was created in God's image.

The Bible makes no mention of the morality of popular aesthetic enhancements available today such as cosmetic surgery, Botox injections, fillers, and laser resurfacing. The Catholic church does not hold an official position regarding the issue. This leaves followers of Christ in search of answers that match up with their values. With a lack of specific guidelines, individuals must take psychological, emotional, and social factors into consideration before making a decision regarding cosmetic procedures such as breast implants.

Read on to learn five reasons and situations where breast implants seem to be permissible:

Health Concerns
If a woman suffers damage to her breasts as a result of an accident or loses all or a portion of her breasts to a mastectomy, breast reconstruction can be an option. In these cases, implants are not considered enhancements. As stated by the Catholic Education Resource Center, these instances are viewed as a method of correcting a deformity. FULL POST

Why Listening To Music Is Key To Good Health

Music has been around since the beginning of time, but many of its benefits are still unknown. However, if you are an avid music lover, you have probably experienced many of these benefits without even being aware of it. Many medical experts are changing how they treat their patients, reducing the need for medications and extensive therapy. Today, they are turning to music as a form of medicine to treat a variety of mental disorders. Below, you will discover more about how music can help improve health.

Reduces External Sounds

Intensive care patients are often surrounded by life-saving equipment that produces an abundance of noise. These patients are left with very little to do, but to stare at the ceiling and listen to the sounds of these machines. While it is extremely difficult to drown out these noises, physicians and therapist have started incorporating music into the environment. By providing the patients with a source of music, they will become more relaxed and less focused on the machines nearby. Music is wholesome and beautiful, which is why everyone enjoys listening to it in all types of situations. FULL POST

Christian abortion doctor believes he is doing God’s work

Dr. Willie Parker

By Mark Ellis

Dr. Willie Parker is an abortionist in Mississippi and Alabama, where there are fewer and fewer clinics open to the controversial practice. He says he is driven by his deep Christian faith to conduct his work, killing the unborn in the womb.

“I believe that as an abortion provider, I am doing God’s work,” Parker writes in his new memoir, Life’s Work: A Moral Argument for Choice. “I am protecting women’s rights, their human right to decide their futures for themselves, and to live their lives as they see fit.”

Recently he visited California to accept a Person of the Year award from the Women’s Reproductive Rights Assistance Project (WRRAP), according to a report in the L.A. Times.

Parker was abandoned by his father and grew up poor in Birmingham, Ala. At 15, a coach who also happened to be a Pentecostal pastor led him to the Lord.

He was the first one in his family to attend college. Parker was a bold witness there, carrying his Bible throughout the dorm, spreading the Good News, according to The Times. FULL POST

12 Healthy Ways to Burn Fat Fast

Burning fat and losing weight need not be as tough as some gurus might have had you to believe. With just the right kind of advice and consistency in practice, you should be able to shed a few pounds in no time. Consistency is up to you; we, however, have some excellent advice on different ways to burn fat fast! So, keep on reading.

1. Avoid sugar!

Yes, you heard that right! Sugar is one of the enemies that you must keep away at all costs. It isn’t going to be easy, but it will be worth it. Start by choosing diet options that contain sweeteners rather than sugar. If you have to have a sweet drink, make sure they are not loaded with sugar. The same applies to food as well. As a bonus, your teeth will thank you too.

2. Maintain a balanced macronutrient profile

To keep your macronutrient profile balanced, create meal plans that consist of high protein, low carbs, and moderate fat. Don’t go on crash dieting because cutting down on too many calories too fast will likely make you give up on a diet, which might cause you to gain even more weight. FULL POST

It all starts with cleaning products. Did you know that there are no federal regulations on the use of chemicals in cleaning products? Ingredients don’t have to meet any sort of safety standard and there’s no requirement to list all ingredients on the label.

Call it a miracle: Woman gave birth in coma, woke up 3 months later to meet baby

Amelia and Santino

By Mark Ellis

A female police officer in Argentina delivered a baby while she was in a coma, then woke up and held her three-month-old for the first time.

Many are calling it a miracle of God.

Amelia Bannan was nearly six months pregnant when she suffered a serious brain injury in an auto accident November 1st.

She had a premonition about traveling that day. “Let’s not travel, if we get into that car it will just roll over,” she told a friend, according to El Pais.

When the car was hit from behind, Bannan suffered a skull fracture, but the baby survived. The other occupants of the vehicle were unharmed, according to El Pais.

Since the accident, the baby developed normally in the womb while Amelia lapsed into a coma caused by a blood clot in her brain.

In late December, Amelia opened her eyes, moved her hands and although she was not able to speak, began contractions.

Since she did not dilate, she underwent an emergency C-section on Christmas Eve. “He was born on Christmas Eve, it was a miracle,” her brother, Caesar, told El Pais. FULL POST

Black Men and Women Who Are religious Report Better Health - New Research

For black women looking for ways to improve their mental health, some researchers say religion and spirituality bring health benefits such as a longer life and a decreased risk for heart disease.

According to the Black Women’s Health Study, which was further analyzed in the April 2017 issue of the American Journal of Epidemiology, black women who said they were very involved in their church, mosque or another place of worship tended to report excellent or very good mental health.

According to a 2011 nationwide survey conducted by The Washington Post and the Kaiser Family Foundation, black women are one of the most religious demographics in America, with 74 percent of black women and 70 percent of black men saying that “living a religious life” is very important, compared to 57 percent of white women and 43 percent of white men.
