Blueberries And Spinach Are Seen As Food for Thought
With the U.S. population aging, and baby boomers approaching senior-citizen status in massive numbers, there is an increasing interest in finding ways to improve the lives of older people, not incidentally decreasing the cost of supporting the health of those new seniors. A study by university researchers - aided by some old, memory-challenged rats - indicates eating blueberries may help fight age-related memory loss in rodents and, by extension, perhaps in humans. Cooked blueberries, as in a blueberry pie, might be good for you. Eating strawberries and spinach may have similar benefits.

The Healer Within
The presence of special breathing practices in the ancient cultures has always been a mystery to people in the Western world. In "Extending the Inhalation" Dr. Roger Jahnke explains that even with deep breathing there is still some lung capacity left following the exhalation. In this method the fullest extent of filling and emptying of the lungs is enacted. Breathe in until you think the lungs are filled. Then take in 3 more short breaths, to full lung capacity. Following the emptying of the lungs on the exhalation, expel three additional breaths.

Healthy Child Update
Childhood sore throats occur most often in winter and spring. A sore throat may be accompanied by a head cold, runny nose, or ear infection. The majority of sore throats are minor viral illnesses that can be treated easily at home. However, about one-third of childhood sore throats are diagnosed as "strep" throat, an infection caused by the Streptococcus bacteria. In Sore Throat" Janet Zand L.Ac., O.M.D. offers parents guidelines for analyzing symptoms and a variety of treatment options - conventional, dietary, nutritional, herbal, homeopathy, and acupressure - to consider.
