Family happiness, financial worries and height linked to stroke risk
Men who are tall and financially secure with happy families might already seem to have enough advantages, but researchers have discovered one more: They are less likely to suffer strokes. The traditional risk factors - high blood pressure, smoking, diabetes, and obesity - certainly don't explain all strokes. So researchers started searching for less obvious hints that can help identify who is at risk of a stroke so something can be done to prevent it - and they found them.
HRT Associated with Reduced Cognitive Decline in Older Women
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is associated with reduced cognitive decline in older women, suggest findings from a population-based study. To separate the effects of HRT from "more general health-related behaviors," the investigators also conducted analyses substituting multivitamin or calcium supplements for HRT as potential predictors of cognitive trajectory. Researchers caution that definitive demonstration of HRT effects will require randomized trials among healthy older women.

COLUMNS FROM THE EXPERTS
Dr. Galland's Integrated
Fibre is the term that describes remnants of plant cells that are resistant to human digestion. The usual sources are vegetables, cereals, bread, nuts, seeds and fruits. Although medical researchers have been recommending high fibre diets for about twenty years, and sales of metamucil and other bulk laxatives have gone up, there has been no significant increase in fibre consumption from food and the fibre intake of Americans is far below recommended levels. This is unfortunate, because the fibre found in food is far more complex than the purified powders sold in drug stores. In "Understanding Dietary Fibre" Dr. Galland discusses the need for both soluble and insoluble fibre in the diet and that the best source is from foods.
Mind Body Health Newsletter
In "Reducing Stress Reduces Heart Disease" David S. Sobel, M.D. reports on a study of patients with heart disease where it was found that relaxation, taming hostility, and helping people change the way they look at life's challenges can reduce their risk of having further heart problems by 75% compared to people given only usual medical care and medications. Reducing stress proved even more beneficial than getting exercise.
Before we became such a highly industrialized, automated, and sedentary society, most Americans spent most of their day doing some form of physical activity. Today few adults do much in the way of movement. What happens is a classic example of the use it or lose it principle of human physiology. Unlike automobile engines that wear out with use, our musculoskeletal system seems to rust out with lack of use. In "Take Time To Stretch" Dr. Wayne L. Wescott explains why it is so important to do strength training to maintain muscle tissue and bone density and shares his six "Principles of Stretching."

Teeccino is the first herbal coffee on the market - a blend of herbs, grains, fruits and nuts that are roasted, ground and brewed just like coffee. Dark, rich, and full-bodied, Teeccino brings you all the satisfaction of a robust brew with no caffeine reaction. Teeccino tastes mildly sweet from dates and figs, with only 15 calories per cup.

Anger can be one of the most frustrating emotions, carrying us headlong away from ourselves and depositing us into separation and dismay. Vietnamese monk and world teacher, Thich Nhat Hanh, tackles this most difficult of emotions in "Anger: Wisdom for Cooling the Flames." Nhat Hanh tells us that, fundamentally, to be angry is to suffer, and that it is our responsibility to alleviate our own suffering. The way to do this is to transform ourselves through mindfulness. Serious though lighthearted, "Anger" is a handbook not only for transforming anger but for living each moment beautifully.

Endometriosis is the presence of uterine tissue outside its usual location on the inner lining of the uterus. Pain, abnormal menstrual bleeding, infertility and prolonged disability may result. In "Endometriosis" David L. Hoffmann B.Sc. (Hons), M.N.I.M.H. points out that this is a notoriously difficult condition to diagnose, though up to 25% of women of childbearing age are affected by it.
