CONTINUING OUR 12-STAGE JOURNEY TO WELLNESS
This week our journey focuses on FEELING, the 6th of 12 keys to wellness in the Wellness Inventory. We experience feelings and emotions from well before the event of our birth. They can be intense, or frightening, or wonderful. They can also be the most misunderstood, and consequently mistreated, gifts we have as human beings. We judge them, repress them, discount them, drug them, worship them, and run from them. Yet, what a bore to be without them! Life fully lived is life filled with feeling!
Wellness is an illusion if there is no commitment to the health of the whole planet. We are all interdependent. In "Befriend the Earth" John W. Travis, M.D., M.P.H., challenges you to contribute to a saner environment by examining your own lifestyle for waste. He also offers other practical, everyday choices you can make that will contribute to your own health and support the earth at the same time.
Do you find that you begin to ache when working at the computer? When working for extended periods we often begin to ache, especially at the end of a long week. In "Relief" Erik Peper, Ph.D. and Katherine Hughes Gibney suggest gentle movements or massage to help stimulate blood flow and bring energy to tired muscles.

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. Kunin, 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.
Women's Health Detective
If you're on a strict high-protein, you still need carbohydrates. The good ones. In "Good Carbs, Bad Carbs – Which Do You Eat?" Nan Kathryn Fuchs, Ph.D. explains that good carbs are whole foods from plants that contain both sugars and fiber, such as beans, whole grains, starchy vegetables, and fresh fruit. Substitute some of them for saturated (animal) fats and they can help lower your cholesterol. Their fiber binds to cholesterol, carrying it out of your body, and also keeps your blood sugar level.
In "The Birth of Osteopathy" Leon Chaitow, N.D., D.O., M.R.O. places the beginnings of osteopathy in the context of the dark age of medicine, and shows a practical system of structural therapeutics that has never been invalidated by later discoveries.
Healthy Man Update
Over and over, we are seeing the results of lifestyle changes in health care. In "Nutritional Program for Sexual Dysfunction" Michael Janson, M.D. applies this to men and explains how meditation, exercise, and dietary changes are a good place to start. He outlines Sexual Dysfunction Treatment Programs to try before more severe options with serious side effects.

Animal-product foods, in general, are denser and higher-protein foods, more concentrated body-building foods, and also higher-fat foods. They are most important in growth years and during pregnancy and lactation, but should be consumed moderately the rest of the time. In "Dairy Products" Elson M. Haas, M.D. outlines the benefits of milk, butter, yogurt, kefir, buttermilk, cheeses, processed cheese, cream cheese, cottage cheese, and ice cream.

Slow, non-intense, daily practice of moderate exercise, as it has been done in China through Qigong and in India through Yoga for centuries, is now emerging, with scientific authorization as the fitness enhancement practice of choice, according to Dr. Roger Jahnke in "Gentle Movements and Postures, Part I." When we look to how the Asian traditions have refined this idea over time, the unwell, the bedridden, those limited to wheel chairs, elders and even the partially paralyzed can derive significant fitness building through moderate self-applied practices of Qigong and Yoga.
Your spiritual nature is a psychological fact. It is the real and transformative force that empowers your life. In "Psychospiritual Integration" Jacquelyn Small, L.C.S.W. relates how this process begins to occur naturally when the ego and soul turn to focus upon one another.
