Homeopathy- An Overview

Written by Debbie Edson RPh. Posted in Homeopathy.

Homeopathy is a system of medicine based upon the phenomenon that substances, which cause a particular illness in healthy individuals at high doses, can be used to cure or mitigate similar symptoms when given in very small doses.

History

In 1790 a German physician named Samuel Hahnemann, distressed by the toxic medical methods of his day, abandoned the practice of medicine.  At the time, the primary arsenals of medicine were bloodletting with leaches, and the use of toxic metals. Hahnemann was a linguist and, to support his large family, he went to work as a translator.

What are Allergies?

Allergies are a very common problem. More than 50 million Americans suffer from various types of allergies.

Is Your Exercise Making You Fatter?

Written by Dr.Scott Rosenthal. Posted in Weight Loss & Dieting.

She was already there when I arrived... huffing and puffing... sporting stretchy black garb while a distressed expression blanketed her face. What was she thinking? Could it be,

“This is wonderful! Who hoo, I love being chained to a treadmill for FIVE hours each week!!” I don’t think so. Her body language spoke more of the desperation displayed by Superman, outstretched arms, tightly clawed hands, scrambling feet, as he crept toward safety when in the proximity of kryptonite. After I had finished my routine at the gym, I was on my way out when I saw her STILL trucking away on the treadmill. Now, sweatier and obviously exhausted, she slapped her feet on the spinning belt to nowhere with a disheartening beat - the rhythm of an army drum calling for retreat. Sound like a familiar scenario?

Living Healthy Healing power of Dreams

Perhaps you’ve experienced this scenario. There is something difficult weighing on your mind. Maybe you have a problem that needs to be addressed; a decision that needs an answer; an uncomfortable relationship issue. The difficulty often feels more and more overwhelming as nighttime approaches. And then you “sleep on it.” When you awaken in the morning you’ve got a fresh perspective. The problem that seemed so insurmountable last night does not feel so big. Why is this?

Living Healthy Breaking Food Rules

For most of our life, we’ve been bombarded by our parents, the media and food manufacturers about what to eat, how to eat and when to eat. Let’s expose some of the ‘food rules’ that we’ve formed (consciously or unconsciously) and actively decide which ones are worth breaking!

Breakfast: Many of you might gawk at me in a lecture when I suggest you try eating veggies for breakfast. I, myself, this morning had spinach

Living Well Dreams

Why Pay Attention to your Dreams?

Written by Kat Samworth. Posted in Self Growth.

living spiritual dreams

Dreaming is a natural process that happens just by virtue of being human. And like other natural processes such as breathing, it does its work whether or not we pay attention to it. But like with breathing, if we do pay attention, we can begin to have a different and perhaps deeper kind of relationship to it. When we learn how to purposely take deeper breaths, we begin to have new kind of living connection to our body. It can be like this and so much more when we pay attention to the natural process of dreaming. When we intentionally dive deeper into our dreams, we develop a new kind of relationship with the totality of ourselves and to the world we live in.

Is Your Smartphone Giving Your Teenager Horrible Posture?

Written by Dr Scott Rosenthal. Posted in Family Health.

family health tech neck,

Let’s face it. Looking up at the sparkling night sky simply can’t compete with the magnetic draw of looking down at your smartphone. Handheld devices have become so much a part of our lives they may soon be sandwiched somewhere between food and shelter as top human necessities. Unfortunately, there are many negative health consequences resulting from this excessive act of bowing one’s head, especially when it comes to those most addicted: teenagers!
If you fear I am going to declare that everybody needs to stop using smartphones, I will provide an answer in the exotic language of the common American teen: “Seriously? Why are you being SOOO mean? STOP!!! You don’t get it! Leave ME alone... don’t talk to me!” (Followed by the distinct sound of a bedroom door slamming shut.) Two minutes later, “what’s for dinner?”
