12 Things To Look For In Your Stool And What It Could Mean
July 28, 2014 | HumanBody | K.Foster
Few of us are able to talk about the end result of our digestion without embarrassment. It's too bad we're not more willing to pay attention to our stools, because they may be just as useful in diagnosing our health as taking our temperature or our blood pressure. We need to exercise greater transparency and discussion when it comes to paying attention to our stools. When we accept that our bowel movements are key predictors to our well-being and as useful in diagnosing our health as taking our temperature or our blood pressure, they suddenly become much more than an oversight.


It's Time To Abandon Dangerous Folic Acid Fortification Programs and Stick To Folates
July 28, 2014 | Nutrition | M.Chan
It's an embarrassing fact, but more than half of dieticians think folic acid is naturally found in foods. It isn't and never was. Only folate is found in foods such as lentils, beans, spinach and other greens. The body does not metabolize folic acid in the same way it does folate. Researchers from the Institute of Food Research and Newcastle University have confirmed that the body processes synthetically-produced folic acid differently to the natural counterpart found in vegetables. This leads to unmetabolised folic acid circulating in the bloodstream which is eventually metabolised by the liver, but the process is slow, inefficient and possibly toxic.

Are Your Food Allergies Silently Making You Fat?
July 25, 2014 | Allergies | E.Sinclaire
According to medical studies, it is estimated that over 60% of the population suffers from one form of food allergies or sensitivities.

Instead, over half of us are affected with a 'silent' food allergy that goes undiagnosed.

5 Ways Corrective Lenses Break Down Your Eyesight and How To Improve Your Vision Naturally
July 24, 2014 | NaturalLiving | M.Torres
Optometrists just like much of the medical community are fixated on short-term solutions which don't address the root cause of problems. Few optometrists will admit and the greatest majority are unaware that glasses and contacts are almost guaranteed to destroy your eyesight over time. Unfortunately, they're not trained on natural and preventative solutions that improve vision in the long-term because they simply do not understand the way the eye works. Contrary to popular belief, your vision doesn't have to decline over time. With regular exercise of the muscles that control your eye movements and visual acuity, you can reduce eyestrain and maintain or even improve your vision without any destructive correctional conventions such as laser surgery, glasses or contact lenses.

The Happiest State Has One Of The Highest Poverty Levels and One Of The Lowest Household Incomes In The Nation
July 23, 2014 | Happiness | M.Forrester
There are persistent differences in self-reported subjective well-being across U.S. metropolitan areas, and residents of declining cities appear less happy than other Americans. Newer residents of these cities appear to be as unhappy as longer term residents, and yet some people continue to move to these areas. While the historical data on happiness are limited, the available facts suggest that cities that are now declining were also unhappy in their more prosperous past. According to a working paper from researchers at Harvard University and the University of British Columbia, the five happiest cities in the U.S. all happen to be located in one state, which also ranks as the happiest state.

Natural Medicine or Synthetic (drug) Medicine: Perhaps We Need a New Mindset?
July 22, 2014 | NaturalLiving | E.Dahl
A word is a thought expressed, and it has been said that our thoughts speak louder than our words. The power of the mind is still virtually unknown. A light switch turns on and off and the differences are apparent, and the same holds true for our perception and how we believe. It is my personal belief that we will either our sickness or our well-being; we have the ability to anticipate success or failure. As an example, if you receive a terminal diagnosis, you either turn the switch off or allow it to come into fruition, or you change your mindset and lifestyle to do whatever it takes in order to live. And it all begins within the mind. The same holds true in medicine.
