Staying in the Loop RSS

You certainly have heard the old adage, “Energy begets energy”.  To gain energy, you must do energetic things.  Kind of a Catch 22 isn’t it?  Perhaps you are saying, “I just don’t have the energy to get started”.  “So, how can I gain energy”? Have you ever noticed when some friends, neighbors or relatives sit around after retirement get sickly or even die?  Unfortunately, many ultimately die quickly following a daily work regimen they had for years.  If a person stays busy with various body motions, the body stays alive.  When a sedentary life is introduced, the body shuts down....

Salicylates are the salts and esters of salicylic acid. Naturally occurring in varying concentrations in many fruits and vegetables, salicylates are stored in the bark, leaves, roots, and seeds of plants, and act as a natural immune hormone and preservative, preventing rotting and protecting the plant against harmful insects, bacteria, and fungi.  Salicylates are chemically very similar to the man-made chemical, acetylsalicylic acid, a key ingredient in aspirin and other pain medications.  They are also frequently found in cosmetics and personal care products. Common products containing salicylates include:  acne and wart removal products, aspirin, many other NSAIDs, and other medications,...

The Hypothalamus is situated in the mid-brain, from which place it controls practically every organ in the body, mainly through the Endocrine system. In particular, it influences the Sympathetic Nervous System (ANS) and the Immune System, where most of the symptoms of ‘‘Hypothalamitis’’ arise. In all, the Hypothalamus controls energy levels, the sleep cycle, muscular function, circulation, temperature, the gut and defense against infection. The key function of the Hypothalamus is to coordinate the actions of the Nervous system, the...

Some institutions require flu shots for employees.  Not much of a choice there.  However, the public in general can make informed and educated choices about flu shots.  An M.D. recently posted information about the near fatal reaction he had from his flu shot.  It put him in a paralyzed situation for three months following his shot.  Of course, he indicated he would never do a flu shot again.  Since most people get ill after receiving the annual injection for a while and unfortunately some even experience long term debilitating effects, why do the shot? Alas, I know the answer.  Television,...
