Interactive cycle of feng shui elements

10:01 AM
In order to better understand the flow of energy in feng shui, we need to know how certain elements interact with each other, so we know three cycles:

- Productive
- Reductive
- Destructive


The Productive cycle


In a productive cycle, each individual element feeds and strengthens the energy of the next one, creating harmonious energy and favorable chi, and this can be explained as follows:

- Metal creates water
- Water feeds wood
- Fire creates the earth
- Earth creates metal

From this we can see which elements can be combined in certain sectors of the home, in order to achieve a complete balance and attract a positive chi. 

Thus, we will put a symbol of water in the shape of a fountain, aquarium, and pictures with water motives in the northern sector, which will represent the field of care, but we will strengthen this sector by adding a metal element, which can be a metal bowl or some other metal object that will symbolically stimulates the formation of water.

Also, in the earth sector we will add the element of fire and in the southwestern part next to crystals and earthen jar; we put a lamp or candles. We will strengthen the wood sector by adding water element and so on.



In a productive cycle, each individual element feeds and strengthens the energy of the next one, creating harmonious energy and favorable chi, and this can be explained as follows


The Reductive Cycle


The reductive cycle acts reversely from the productive one, because each element draws the energy of the former, so:

- Metal depletes the ground
- Earth diminishes the fire
- Fire diminishes wood
- Wood diminishes water
- Water consumes metal

By understanding the reductive cycle of the elements we can conclude that by adding water to the wood sector we will reinforce the wood sector because the water feeds the wood, however, by adding wood to the water sector we take away the energy of water, because the tree diminishes water, so we will always use the productive cycle of the elements to strengthen the elements, the previous element that keeps the next one in a circular cycle.

Destructive cycle


This cycle takes place in the shape of a star and explains how some element is destroyed by another. This process takes place according to the following scheme:

- Metal splits wood
- Tree destroys the earth
- Earth destroys water
- Water extinguishes fire
- Fire-melting metal

Knowing this cycle is very important in feng shui, so that we know how to destroy an unwanted element that does not suit us and we have no other way to get rid of it, then we do it by adding a destructive element, which must be strong enough or stronger than the one we want eliminate.

A favorable home environment according feng shui

12:13 PM
The basis of feng shui is the four main sides of the world. Each of them belongs to one celestial animal:

- Turtle - North
- Red Phoenix - South
- Green dragon - East
- White tiger - West



Turtle belongs to north, black color and water sector. It is representing as a home-based support and protection and it's best to stay in the north side of your home, looking at hill, mountain, high building or high wood. 

Turtle is the most powerful feng shui symbol, and if you are not able to keep a live turtle, and then definitely get the turtle figure that you will place in the northern sector of your home or living room.

The turtle brings a light and stable improvement; it increases happiness and quality of life. A famous feng shui master, Lillian Too recommends keeping this symbol, as she says during the thirty years of observing this phenomenon; she never met the situation in which the turtle did not produce results.

The dark red phoenix belongs to the south, the fire and the red color. Ideally it would be in front of your home or in the direction of the front door. 

The power of the red phoenix is activated by placing a figure of phoenix or any red bird, cock, flaming, peacock at the furthest point in front of the front door or to the elevation in front of the house in the direction of the south, which we made ourselves. Phoenix symbolizes success and unexpected help.

The green dragon is the height on the left side of your home, looking from the inside out. Ideally this should coincide with the east. 

You can recognize him in the shape of a hill, a high building, or a tree and you can create it by yourself by placing an ornament or plant at that. 


Turtle belongs to north, black color and water sector. It is representing as a home-based support and protection and it's best to stay in the north side of your home, looking at hill, mountain, high building or high wood.


The Green Dragon brings happiness in the form of wealth, progress, influence and all forms of financial power.

The white tiger is putting on the right side of the front door, viewed from the inside to the outside, and ideally it should match the west. 

This elevation must be lower than that of the green dragon, so that the protective power of this mighty animal would not turn into destructive force that would harm your household. 

Therefore, the Tiger must always be under the control of the dragon, and it will bring you luck in the form of protection from robbery, accident, loss, and defeat. 

Tiger images are not recommended to be kept inside the house because they develop energy that is difficult to put under control.

Health Benefits of Potassium | Deficiency

7:25 AM

Basic Characteristics of Potassium


Potassium is the third most important macronutrient for human life. 

Together with sodium and magnesium, potassium participates in the transmission of bio impulses, thus regulates the electrical conductivity of the heart, muscle, gastrointestinal tract and participates in maintaining of normal brain function.


A large portion of potassium is excreted through the kidneys (urine) while small part is eliminating through the digestive tract. 

Therefore, the kidneys are extremely important in the metabolism of potassium, precisely because they participate in maintaining the balance of potassium in the body.


What are the Health Benefits of Potassium?

Extremely important role of potassium is in allergic conditions and in the process of detoxifying the body.


Physiological role of potassium is to provide a smooth flow of bio electrical impulses through nerve cells, so potassium affects the proper maintenance of the heart, brain, nerve and muscle cells, as well as muscle cell of intestines.

In addition, potassium also has a metabolic role in the body, as it encourages the creation of the proteins, participates in the metabolism of glucose. Potassium is a precursor in the synthesis of the growth hormone and much more.

Extremely important role of potassium is in allergic conditions and in the process of detoxifying the body.

Knowing the physiological properties of potassium, it can be said that sufficient quantities of potassium in the body provide protection against cardiovascular diseases, especially hypertension, then prevention of the formation of kidney diseases, stomach disorders, and according to previous researches, potassium has connectivity in the prevention of osteoporosis.


Sources of Potassium in Food


Foods contain sufficient quantities of potassium, therefore, potassium deficiency mainly line in normal conditions of nutrition and life.

Most potassium is found in:

- Banana
- Sweet potato
- Pumpkin
- Tomato juice
- Brown rice
- Orange juice
- Chicken
- Salmon

What we need to indicate, is that the heat treatment of food has big influence on the lost more than half of the present amount of potassium. 

It is therefore advised to use foods rich in potassium in fresh state.

In addition to the ingredients of natural origin, potassium can be replaced by supplements

In the form of supplements, potassium is in the form of salts and it is commonly combined with other electrolytes in order to compensate electrolytes after training.

When using supplements that contain potassium you should be careful, because it can lead to overdose, so the medical advice before use is desirable.


Which are Daily Doses of Potassium?


There are different opinions around the daily dose of potassium, and it is depending on the author, starts from 2000 to even 8000 mg daily. 

It is assumed that the potassium intake of 2000 mg is optimized to meet normal physiological needs of body for this electrolyte.


Symptoms of Potassium Deficiency


Certain pathological conditions, such as diarrhea, increased sweating, vomiting, disturbed metabolism, use of drugs (diuretics) can lead to a state of deficiency or increased loss of potassium from the body.

Extremely low levels of potassium can create longer use of steroids and laxatives that are often use in training, as well as the application of inadequate diet.


Symptoms of potassium deficiency include:

- Weakness
- Muscle cramps
- Irregular heartbeat
- Abdominal problems
- Nervosa
- Dry skin

Symptoms that accompany excess levels of potassium in the body are:

- Nausea and cramps
- Diarrhoea
- Enlargement of the abdomen
- Metallic taste in the mouth
- Slow heart beat
- The outcome can be fatal 


The emergence of heightened levels of potassium occurs in kidney patients since the kidneys are unable to maintain normal levels of potassium. 

Also in the elderly, due to physiological deterioration of the body, can come to a reduced excretion of potassium from the body and retention.
