Drug-safety Worries Prompt Search For Solutions
The U.S. spends more on pharmaceuticals, devotes more resources to medical research and discovers more new drugs than any other country. But its system for monitoring and responding to safety issues after drugs are approved isn't state-of-the-art, and in some ways falls short of what's done elsewhere in the world. There's new interest in the ways other developed nations do it.
Some Foods Just Sound Healthy...Keep Reading the Labels
Many of the healthiest foods are not heavily advertised. So we need to be wary of the "heart healthy" product claims being made out there in TV land especially. There are a number of foods to avoid and options to replace them.
Obesity Is Rising Sharply Among U.S. Preschoolers
The obesity epidemic is reaching down to the playpen: More than 10 percent of U.S. children ages two to five are overweight. Experts blame the prevalence of junk food marketed to children, too much TV, and the decline in the number of families who sit down together to eat. Doctors and parents need to watch the weight of even very young children.

JOIN US ON A 12-STAGE JOURNEY TO WELLNESS
This week our journey focuses on EATING, the 4th of 12 keys to wellness in the Wellness Inventory. Most Americans' eating patterns represent a public health crisis. If a new disease erupted that was one tenth as destructive as most people's diets, there would be a massive public outcry to find the cure. The way many people eat is the result of a lifestyle that glorifies immediate satisfaction and neglects the long-term consequences.
While working do you find yourself tired and quickly irritated by minor hassles? Do depressive thoughts quickly arise? A state of tense tiredness is often common after a restless sleep, lack of a balanced breakfast, consuming multiple cups of coffee or caffeinated drinks, eating sugary snacks, and lack of exercise. Low energy often contributes to negative moods that increase shoulder muscle tension. In "Increase Energy" Erik Peper, Ph.D. and Katherine Hughes Gibney offer suggestions to decrease your tension and change your mood.
Although there is a mass of conflicting data surrounding the components of sound nutrition practices, in "Learn Ten Basics about Food" John W. Travis, M.D., M.P.H., provides you with certain recommendations that are almost universally accepted. He challenges you to pick one to implement into your daily diet over the next few weeks.
Healthy Bookstore - 8 Weeks to Vibrant Health
In "8 Weeks to Vibrant Health" acclaimed integrative doctor Hyla Cass, M.D. and health writer Kathleen Barnes address ways women can empower themselves by discovering the underlying causes of any health problems. Then you are given the tools you need to determine why you are experiencing these symptoms and to remedy the imbalance that causes the symptoms.

Nutritional Medicine and Longevity
Until recently Boron was just a powdery cleaner, something to get out the dirt. In "Boron: An Ortho-Mineral" Richard A. Kuninn, M.D. reports how boron has yet to be recognized as an essential mineral; however it does have measurable effects on human biochemistry, physiology and performance. He believes that boron is a versatile candidate to lead a revolution in nutraceutical medicine.
In "Naturopathic Medicine" Michael Alan Morton, Ph.D. and Mary Morton provide an in-depth explanation of this popular natural healing modality.
Healthy Man Update
The interest and ability to partake in satisfying sexual relations is an important part of living, even well into advanced years. It is an important part of loving relationships. However, there are many causes of sexual dysfunction (loss of interest or ability to take part in sex). In "Nutritional Program for Sexual Dysfunction" Michael Janson, M.D. points out that health-enhancing programs of diet and exercise with basic dietary supplements can help the situation.
Find an Alternative Healthcare
The Professional Referral Network contains searchable directories for 20 leading professional associations in complementary and integrative health care, with over 17,000 professionals. Looking for a healthcare professional specializing in visualization? The Guided Imagery section includes the Academy for Guided Imagery member database.
Although we reach for the coffee or tea cup hoping to boost our energy, studies show that we are actually inducing a state of stress. Caffeine drives the adrenal glands to produce stress hormones that can remain in the blood stream up to 18 hours after consumption. In "The Hidden Link Between Stress, Aging and Caffeine" Caroline MacDougall sheds new light on lifestyle practices that ultimately lead to fatigue, plus tips for kicking the caffeine habit.
There's a Yogi
in the Kitchen!
You have heard the expression, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away." In "Something Worth Crying Over!" Siri-Ved Kaur Khalsa offers a new one to remember: "An onion a day keeps disease away!" Onions' job is to keep the blood pure, improve digestion, and promote liver detoxification. She includes several "yogic remedies" that employ onion.

KICK THE CAFFEINE HABIT -

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.
Echoes of Silence
In "Spectacle of Silence" Robert Rabbin explains that silence cannot be explained. It cannot be known or experienced in a way that might be familiar to us. However, when we say beauty or love, and when we are meeting those two in a pure and honest place, then we can say that Silence has come into our life. Silence is oneness. Silence refers to a state of fundamental unified existence. If this sounds abstract, vague, or esoteric, it only sounds so because we cannot say exactly what Silence is. The world needs this Silence. The world needs people who know and serve Silence.
Music and Wellness
Ever found yourself humming in desperate anticipation or while engaged in a stressful situation? Music predictably impacts us more than just a random collection of sounds. In "Sound Advice for Health: The Musical Elixir of Our Minds" Barry Bittman, M.D. encourages the development of effective, enabling self-help strategies for those who wish to condition wellness or aid in the reestablishment of their health. He offers us a list of specific actions to be taken to bring music back into our lives.
