The California Acupuncture Board now requires that only single-use needles are to be used by all licensed acupuncturists in California. While there is no evidence of transmission of infections or disease using properly sterilized reusable needles and while these sterilization and reuse procedures are common in other healthcare professions, this issue has become a central issue in many recent political battles surrounding the acupuncture profession.

CONTINUING OUR 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.
It is true that your words create your world. As you look around your surroundings, you are talking to yourself about everything you see. Your language structures your reality. In "Watch Your Words" John W. Travis, M.D., M.P.H., documents self-programming that heals - based on research in the field of psychoneuroimmunology that verifies that thoughts and emotions directly affect the strength of the immune system.
Running and bicycling are complementary exercises that enable you to cross-train for better cardiovascular benefit and lower risk of overuse injuries. While running emphasizes the rear thigh and calf muscles, bicycling emphasizes the front thigh muscles, calf and shin muscles and activates upper body muscles. In "Bicycling at its Best" Wayne L. Westcott, Ph.D. covers important considerations for function and comfort, warm up and cool down suggestions, and how to make your ride more interesting and productive.

INDIVIDUALIZED HEALTH SOLUTIONS - ADVERTISEMENT
VITAMINS BASED ON YOUR BODY'S NEEDS, NOT RDA's
There is no more need for confusion about the vitamins and minerals your body personally needs. One-size-fits-all vitamin formulas are last century's technology. Individualized formulas based on your unique biochemical needs are now possible and affordable.
With over 30,000 genes each person is Bio-Chemically unique.
After 20 years of clinical research, on over 20,000 clients,
analyzing over 100 vital blood, tissue and urine tests a
group of scientists can now determine each individual's
basic nutrient needs.
"There is no more guess work involved - now you can take
control of your health with the Signature Supplement
individualized nutritional program." says Gary D. Sandman,
president of Individual Health Solutions, llc. "We can now
provide you with an individualized nutritionally bio-matched
multi-vitamin, mineral and amino acid supplement to help
maintain your youthfulness and optimize your health and
wellbeing. You can feel the difference bio-matched vitamins
do for you." As featured on recent NBC newscasts.
Homeopathic medicine is a natural pharmaceutical science that uses various plants, minerals or animals in very small dose to stimulate the sick person's natural defenses. The medicines are individually chosen for their ability to cause in overdose the similar symptoms the person is experiencing. "Homoios" in Greek means similar and "pathos" means disease or suffering. Since one's symptoms are actually efforts of the organism to reestablish homeostasis or balance, it is logical to seek a substance that would, in overdose, cause the similar symptoms the person is experiencing. The medicines, thus, go with, rather than against, the person's natural defenses. In "Ten Most Frequently Asked Questions on Homeopathic Medicine" Dana Ullman answers common questions about homeopathy.
Dr. Christine Horner's Natural Secrets for Breast Health
Most famous for making bones and teeth strong by helping the body to effectively use calcium and phosphorous, vitamin D has another notable talent. In "Breast Health Tip #6: Vitamin D" Christine Horner, M.D., F.A.C.S explains how vitamin D protects against and fights breast cancer. How it helps to make a woman's breast cells more resistant to toxins, decreases the ability of breast cells to divide, stops tumor cells from growing, causes the death of tumor cells, prevents new blood vessels from growing into a tumor, and boosts the immune system.
In " What Are Flower Remedies?" Leslie J. Kaslof reports the observations and research by a British physician in the early 1930's that led to the discovery of natural, non-habit forming preparations which gently assist the body in mobilizing its own internal healing capabilities.
Healthy Woman Update
The decrease in hormones that occurs soon after menopause can cause a number of uncomfortable symptoms, but the long term effects of hormonal loss can produce devastating (and potentially life threatening) consequences. In "Osteoporosis, Heart Disease, and Breast Cancer" Susan M. Lark, M.D. covers these conditions in detail and offers suggestions for countermeasures.

Healthy Bookstore - From Science to God
In "From Science to God: A Physicist's Journey into the Mystery of Consciousness" Peter Russell, well known for his work on the physiology of meditation, describes his personal struggle to bring science and spirit together and conducts readers through some of the more mysterious discoveries of contemporary physics. Physics--"queen of the sciences"--may seem an unlikely source of spiritual inspiration, and when younger, Russell found his growing spiritual curiosity at odds with the mechanistic science exemplified by Stephen Hawking, with whom Russell studied at Cambridge. Dropping out to study transcendental meditation, about which he has written several definitive books, he later returned to academe to engage in scientific study of consciousness and attain the insight that consciousness is what religions call God.

Echoes of Silence
In "Pulling the Trigger" Robert Rabbin presents a challenging dillema and explains that we must learn to face adversity and despair with strength and insight and resolve to not be crushed. We must all learn for ourselves that there is always a part of us that is not in pain, that is not hopeless, that is not sinking in despair. We can learn about this when we see that another's pain is not different from ours, and that to speak or act to reduce another's pain is to free us from our own pain.
