Posted by:

food
Some children are quick to accept a bottle of milk, cookies, or crackers as a replacement for physical touch and emotional nurturing when parents are unable to provide them with such care. When a child receives food instead of emotional nurturing, it is quite probable that such a child will make poor food choices in the future. The process of “I need emotional nurturing = I ...

Friendly Little Critters: Probiotics are all pro and no con

Posted by:

good bacteriaProbiotics, as opposed to antibiotics, are a group of friendly bacteria which include Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidum bacterium. These bacteria help in fighting against evil yeast/candida overgrowth in our digestive tracts.

Posted by:

Bronchodilator drugs are prescribed for conditions such as asthma and other bronchial diseases, but many of these drugs cause loss of magnesium, making symptoms worse.

On Injuries And Post-traumatic Stress Disorder

Posted by:

One thing that never ceases to amaze me is the lack of general psychological knowledge in the medical profession. When you are aiding in the healing process of a person, it is essential to have a handle on basic psychology, even if it is by self-education. It can be quite dehumanizing to focus on a medical career from the pathological-body point of view. For instance, consider a person that has been severely injured after a car accident. ...
