I mitt arbete som psykosyntesterapeut har jag en  del återommande inspirationskällor. En av de jag ofta återkommer till och alltd får en nytändning av är Margret M Paul - som skapat "Inner bonding".


Hon skriver regelbundet små brev (mejl) om vardagsnära psykologiska frågor. Ofta handlar det inte om några banbrytade nyheter utan snarare om kraftfulla och klargörande formuleringar som gör det vi "egentligen" vet så mycket mer påtagligt.


Häromdan fick jag hennes senaste mejl, vilket handlar om vår inställning till att "kunna".


Alltför ofta säger vi oss själva (och andra) att vi inte kan det ena eller det andra. Och visst stämmer det! Som Henry Ford sa:


"Den som tror att han/hon kan, har helt rätt och det har den som tror att han/hon inte kan också. Detta är en obestridlig lag."


"He can who thinks he can, and he can't who thinks he can't. This is an indisputable law." - Henry Ford


Ofta försöker vi inte ens för att vi, medvetet eller undermedvetet, intalar oss att "Jag kan ändå inte". Det finns en rädsla för misslyckande som håller oss tillbaka. Den får sin kraft av skammen och får oss att välja det "säkra" och "trygga" alternativet att inte försöka.


En av de viktigaste lärdomarna vi kan göra är att det är OK att misslyckas. Detta uttrycks på ett slående sätt i det citat jag gjort till mitt personpliga motto sedan många år: "Bättre lyss till den sträng som brast än aldrig spänna en båge". Att försöka, och kanske misslyckas bara för att försöka igen med bättre chans att lyckas, är att leva medans att välja tryggheten i att inte ta några risker är att tacka nej till det livet bjuder.


Nedan följer M Pauls mejl om inställningen till att kunna:



"I Can't Do It"

By Dr. Margaret Paul
June 07, 2011


Does your internal dialogue of "I can't" and your fear of failure stop you from doing what you really want to do?


"He can who thinks he can, and he can't who thinks he can't. This is an indisputable law."- Henry Ford

Have you ever noticed how often you say, "I can't"?


"I can't lose weight."
"I can't find my soul mate."
"I can't find a job I love."
"I can't take care of myself."
"I can't heal this shame."
"I can't get myself to exercise."
"I can't find my passion."


When I was little, one of my favorite books was "The Little Engine that Could." For those of you who don't know this children's book, it's about a little train engine who was given the job of pulling a very big load up a hill. As it was pulling the load, it kept saying, "I think I can. I think I can. I think I can." And, of course, it did.


As a three-year old, this little book impressed me very much. I memorized it and read it over and over. I integrated "I think I can," into my thought process, and every time I was challenged, I would say "I think I can," to myself. Like the little engine who could, I never gave up on something that really mattered to me. Fortunately, "I can't" didn't become a part of my language.


With many of my clients, it's a different story. "I can't" seems to be deeply entrenched into their language. In the work I do, I help people learn how to heal their shame, how to take emotional responsibility by learning to be loving to themselves and others, and how to connect with a personal source of spiritual Guidance. Very often, my clients say things like, "I can't take care of myself. I don’t know how." "I can't connect with my spiritual Guidance. I'm not capable of this." "I can't remember to be present with my feelings." "I can't speak up for myself - it's too hard." And, as Henry Ford states in the above quote, as long as they choose to believe this, they can't. They prove themselves right every time.


I wonder if you would be willing to try an experiment. What might happen if, every time you hear yourself say "I can't" you consciously turn it around and say, "I can!" If you did this often enough, you would change your way of thinking, and in changing your thinking, you can change the outcome of your efforts.


Fortunately, another thing I learned very early in my life is that it's okay to fail. To me failure only means that I need to try harder and learn more. Failure never means that I am stupid or incapable. While I've had plenty of failure in my life, it never stopped me from saying "I think I can," which is what enables me to keep going until I succeed.


From 1998 until 2010, I worked on creating a major software program, called SelfQuest. During these 12 years I had many failures and disappointments, but never once did it occur to me that I would not succeed in creating the program of my vision. It was vitally important to me to create this program that I knew would be a huge help to others, and I knew that nothing would stop me. Even when the programmer disappeared with all the work, I knew in my soul that it would all work out. And it did. After finding an incredible new programmer, the original programmer resurfaced and gave us everything we needed to complete it.


No one succeeds without failures, and no one succeeds by saying "I can't". Try reading "The Little Engine that Could" and integrate this into your mindset!

En inriktning på den här bloggen är att inspirera och informera för att vi ska kunna leva längre, lyckligare och friskare. Här är ett tips för dig som vill stötta naturens hälsofrämjande processer att fungera optimalt i din kropp!


Vad det handlar om är en super-antioxodant med suveräna egenskaper. Tidigare har jag skrivit om gurkmeja och resveratrol i bloggen - kan vara värt att läsa igen - nu kommer alltså ett inlägg om  Astaxantin. Bäst resultat får du om du kombnerar alla tre!


Nedan kommer först en text från en svensk firma som säljer produkten, därefter en mer detaljerad artikel på engelska för er som vill veta mer om hur långt man kommit i forskningen. Det mest prisvärda alternativet har jag hittat på Topformula.se


Astaxantin:
Förbättrar/effektiviserar energiproduktion; sålunda extra lämplig till dem som tränar intensivt och kräver mycket energi samt till äldre personer.


Passerar blod/hjärnbarriären och skyddar hjärnan, centrala nervsystemet och ögonen, något som är ovanligt.


Rekommenderas tillsammans med blåbärs-antocyanosider och lutein som ett naturlig skydd för ögonen.


Skyddar huden mot solens skadliga UV-strålar och minskar risken för att bränna sig. Man kan säga att astaxantin fungerar som en solkräm fast från insidan och dessutom blir resultatet en slätare och fräschare hud.


Bidrar till allmän rörlighet, välmående och ork - märks främst hos 50+.

Kroppen utsätts ständigt för skadliga påverkan som uppstår av t.ex solning, allmän stress, träning, vissa sjukdomar, kemikalier, luftföroreningar och andra negativa miljöfaktorer samt den ökning som naturligt uppstår med stigande ålder då kroppens olika försvarssystem börjar försvagas. Det kan därför vara en god idé att ta TopFormula Astaxantin dagligen.

Astaxantin kommer från en mikroalg.
Astaxantin utvinns ur mikroalgen ”Haematococcus pluvialis”, som förekommer naturligt ute i naturen och i odlingar för kommersiellt bruk. Astaxantin är ekologiskt speciell och i naturen ger astaxantin både den röda färgen åt lax och skaldjur men även ett biologiskt skydd. Forskare tror att det är tack vare astaxantinet som laxen orkar simma uppströms under flera veckor för att nå sina lekområden och för att sedan reproducera sig. Även fåglar som äter astaxantinrika skaldjur och fiskar får ett skydd liksom vi människor.

Astaxantin tillhör en undergrupp av karotenoider som benämns xantofyller. Astaxantin har en unik och ovanlig kemisk struktur som gör att den tar sig ut i kroppen och verkar både inne i och utanpå cellerna.

Viktigt att välja en naturlig Astaxantin.
När du väljer ett tillskott med astaxantin är det viktigt att du väljer en produkt som innehåller naturlig astaxantin. Det finns mycket som tyder på att syntetiskt framställd astaxantin inte har samma positiva effekter som den naturliga varianten. TopFormula Astaxantin innehåller dessutom 83 % av rekommenderat dagligt intag av naturligt E-vitamin då det hjälper till och ger astaxantinet en längre hållbarhet.

Nivån av astaxantin måste byggas upp i kroppen och det tar normalt 4 – 5 veckor innan man börjar känna av effekterna.

När en person intar kosttillskott är det alltid viktigt att komma ihåg att många faktorer påverkar hälsan och välbefinnandet. Det är därför alltid att rekommendera att kosttillskott kombineras med en näringsriktig kost, motion och en i övrigt hälsosam livsstil. Rekommenderat intag: 1 kapsel dagligen i samband med måltid.


Is there scientific support for astaxanthin in the research literature?

Yes. There is a substantial body of literature including in vitro studies, preclinical studies and several human clinical trials. These data consistently suggest that Astaxanthin, with its unique molecular structure and resulting potent antioxidant activity, may be an effective therapeutic modality for a variety of conditions, including cardiovascular, immune, anti-inflammatory, and neurodegenerative.

Have clinical studies been conducted for astaxanthin?

There have been numerous preclinical in vivo and in vitro studies and several human clinical trials to evaluate the efficacy of astaxanthin. A double-blind, placebo-controlled study demonstrated that astaxanthin was found to significantly increase strength and endurance. Another clinical study shows that astaxanthin alleviates symptoms in patients with H. pylori (pre-ulcer indigestion). A third clinical study demonstrated bioavailability in humans. Additional human clinical studies are being sponsored.

What are the major benefits associated with Astaxanthin?

  • Inhibits lipid peroxidation at the cell level, thus protecting the cell membrane and the mitochondrial membrane within the cell.

  • Crosses the blood-brain barrier, which makes it available to the eye, brain and central nervous system to alleviate oxidative stress that contributes to ocular, and neurodegenerative diseases such as glaucoma and Alzheimer's.

  • Provides significantly more antioxidant capacity than other carotenoids and antioxidants such as beta-carotene and Vitamin E.

  • Entraps free radicals by adding them to its long, double-bonded chain rather than donating an electron.

  • Stabilizes the cell membrane like a bridge because its polar end groups span the cell membrane, thus increasing its rigidity and mechanical strength.

  • Neutralizes singlet and triplet oxygen (de-charges) generated by UVA and UVB radiation and other sources.

  • Binds to a lipoprotein, an efficient transport vehicle, making it more bioavailable.

  • Increases immune system function including heightened production of antibody-secreting cells and Interleukin 2 and suppression of Interferon-gamma. Inhibits reactive oxygen species that cause inflammation.

  • Enhances the antioxidant actions of Vitamin E and Vitamin C and encourages the release of Vitamin A from the liver when needed.

  • Astaxanthin very likely increases cell gap junctional communication, a mechanism thought to inhibit cancer.

Why is Astaxanthin considered the "ultimate" antioxidant?

Astaxanthin has 100-500 times the antioxidant capacity of Vitamin E and 10 times the antioxidant capacity of beta-carotene. Many laboratory studies also indicate astaxanthin is a stronger antioxidant than lutein, lycopene and tocotrienols.

How does Astaxanthin work in the body?

After ingestion, Astaxanthin is absorbed by the duodenal mucosa and transported to the liver where it binds with a lipoprotein for transport through the body to the cells. The polar end groups attach to the outer and inner side of the cell membrane, where free radical attack first occurs. The hydroxy and carbonyl groups in astaxanthin help to anchor this molecule to the cell membrane, thus strengthening it.

Astaxanthin is an oxygenated carotenoid called a xanthophyll. Because it is oxygenated, a xanthophyll has greater antioxidant capacity than many other carotenoids. Within the xanthophylls, the astaxanthin molecule contains the longest conjugated, double-bond polyene chain along with both hydroxy and carbonyl groups at each end. This configuration supports the greatest antioxidant capacity, its peroxyl radical chain-breaking abilities, its incorporation of free radicals into its polyene chain (thereby more effectively trapping them), and its enhancement of Vitamin C as an antioxidant. While other carotenoids and antioxidants may perform one or two of these functions, astaxanthin does them all and, in most cases, does them better.

In addition to entrapping free radicals, astaxanthin also de-charges singlet and triplet oxygen and inhibits reactive oxygen, giving it anti-inflammatory properties. Astaxanthin may also increase gap junctional communication between cells, which is a mechanism in the body thought to inhibit the growth of cancer cells.

What is the cell membrane bilayer?

The cell membrane is constructed of two layers of lipid (fat) molecules, resulting in the name "lipid bilayer." The lipid molecules are polar (water-loving) on one end and non-polar on the other. They line up so that the non-polar center of the membrane is inside of the polar outer edges, which are in contact with the water-based material inside and outside of the cell.

What is the importance of the blood-brain barrier?

The blood-brain barrier is a very dense network of tight capillary walls (5 nanometers between cells) that are wrapped around the capillaries of the brain to prevent harmful bacteria, viruses, fungi, and other substances from entering the brain while allowing neurotransmitters and nutrients that nourish the brain to cross. These nutrients include growth factors, water, fat-soluble molecules less than 600 Da, oxygen and carbon dioxide.

What indications does astaxanthin have for human use?

  • Increases strength and endurance (2.8 times greater increase over baseline versus placebo in human study).*

  • Alleviates symptoms in patients with H. pylori (pre-ulcer indigestion).*

  • Protects cell and mitochondrial membranes from oxidative damage, thus protecting the cell from oxidative damage.**

  • Boosts immune system by increasing the number of antibody-producing cells.**

  • Prevents the initiation of cancer cells in the tongue, oral cavity, large bowel, bladder, uterus, and breast.**

  • Inhibits lipid peroxidation that causes plaque formation, thus reducing risk of cardiovascular disease.**

  • Alleviates oxidative stress** and crosses the blood brain barrier.** Therefore, may assist in neurodegenerative conditions such as AMD**, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, ALS and MS.

  • Protects the eyes and skin from UV A and B damage by quenching singlet and triplet oxygen.**

  • Reduces the number of new and abnormal cells in the liver.**

* Confirmed in human clinical study.
** Confirmed in preclinical studies.

Is Astaxanthin safe?

Preclinical studies demonstrate that astaxanthin is safe. There are no known side effects.

Should I replace other dietary supplements with Astaxanthin?

Astaxanthin enhances the action of Vitamin C and Vitamin E and increases the release of Vitamin A from the liver. On a weight basis astaxanthin has about 10 times the antioxidant activity of other carotenoids such as lutein, zeaxanthin, canthaxanthin and beta-carotene, and is about 100 to 500 times greater than alpha-tocopherol. Astaxanthin compliments and enhances the effects of other dietary supplements.

What is the recommended dosage?

The recommended dosage of 1 mg twice per day is similar on a weight basis to current doses for beta-carotene and alpha-tocopherol. The recommended dose is one half of that used in the Malmsten human clinical study in which astaxanthin was found to increase strength and endurance threefold.
