13 Steps to a Better Attitude
Wednesday, 22 June 2011 03:27
World-renowned neuroscientist and brain expert, Dr. Caroline Leaf, has identified 13 steps a person must take in order to detoxify her or his thoughts, which is the powerful "soil" in which our attitudes grow. 
1.    Control and be aware of your thoughts. Are you using a “crystal ball” to imagine fearful things that have never happened or “mindreading” negative things you think others are saying?
2.    Frame your world with what you say. Speak positive things and tell positive stories so you mouth is feeding good things back into your own ears. Are you“telling” your brain things like “What a loser I am” or saying things spontaneously like “You’re killing me.” Consciously try to stop that!
3.    Don’t stuff those toxic emotions…experience them on the way to moving ahead. Admit you are feeling it, then decide to quit it, then decide to get over it, moving on.

Why are Antioxidants important for us?
Friday, 17 June 2011 20:50

 

 Free radicals are incomplete molecules that prey on healthy cells to damage, or even destroy, healthy tissue. The result?  Wrinkled, unhealthy skin, marked aging, and even cancer and a host of degenerative diseases.  
 
Welcome our “Health Hero,”-- the antioxidant. By interacting to stabilize free radicals, antioxidants prevent some of the damage that would otherwise occur. We need to USE and EAT antioxidants for maximum protection.
 "Everything you eat becomes a part of not only your inner being, but the outer fabric of your body as well. The healthier the foods are that you consume, the better your skin will look," says Samantha Heller, a clinical nutritionist at NYU Medical Center in New York City. "Free radicals -- like the kind formed from sun exposure -- damage the membrane of skin cells, potentially allowing damage to the DNA of that cell," says Heller.

SKIN: Your First Defense!
Wednesday, 16 March 2011 12:46

We’ve all heard about…or worse, experienced…heartburn from a stomach that’s too acidic. It’s no fun! But how many of us realize that the largest organ of our bodies–our SKIN–suffers when it isn’t acidic enough? We can’t feel the symptoms of too alkaline skin, but the consequences are no less significant.

One of the most important roles of our skin is to protect our ‘insides’ from the ‘outside’ in the same way a high tech AC filter purifies the air that circulates through our homes.
   Our skin protects us from harmful substances entering our body, and helps eliminate toxins. This lessens the impact on our liver and kidneys to filter out the impurities in our cells.

So You Think You Want to Have Cosmetic Surgery? 
Monday, 11 October 2010 15:58

When an airplane lands on a runway successfully, the nose of the plane must not be too high or too low.  This is called the Attitude of the plane.  As Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott say in a book about good relationships, the trick of landing a plane smoothly is to get the right Attitude despite Atmospheric Conditions.  Likewise in our relationships with those around us, we have control of our attitude, despite the atmosphere around us.

Sun Damage
Monday, 11 October 2010 15:56

Sun Damage from the hot Florida sun can sneak up on you.  I'm rarely out in the sun, you say?  The word is to remember is CUMULATIVE.   Add it up:  20 minutes walking down a sunny sidewalk on Monday, 90 minutes watching Bobby's baseball game on cloudy Tuesday, 10 minutes loading groceries  (think reflective concrete) on Wednesday, 30 minutes outside with the dog on Thursday; then Friday you can add 10 minutes chatting with neighbors at the mailbox, Saturday an hour gardening, and Sunday the 20 minutes sitting in the shade while the pool is reflecting rays towards you.   In the week, you've already had 4 hours of ultraviolet A (UVA) rays which cause wrinkling and premature aging and likewise ultraviolet B (UVB) rays which are responsible for burning.  Both can alter the DNA that controls cell division and growth.  Too much damage can cause skin cancer.  The ultraviolet rays also weaken the skin's elasticity and collagen.

Safe medical environments in Florida
Monday, 11 October 2010 15:55

New York, NY (September 16, 2010) – The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) commends recent actions taken by the Florida Board of Medicine to protect the safety of patients seeking cosmetic surgery. The Board announced a possible one-year license suspension and  fine against a Florida family physician accused of allowing unlicensed medical assistants to perform liposuction, the second major disciplinary action recently taken by the Board that involves inadequate training in cosmetic surgery.
“Liposuction is a surgical procedure that should only be performed by a well trained and properly credentialed medical professional. Allowing unlicensed or unqualified personnel to perform this type of surgical procedure is a serious breach of patient safety. The recent actions taken by the Florida Board of Medicine send a clear message that this type of compromise to patient safety will not be tolerated,” said Felmont Eaves III, MD, President of ASAPS.

Mastectomy Reconstruction Options
Thursday, 07 October 2010 03:07
NEW ORLEANS, Oct. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Two recent studies prove women are not getting the information they need to make informed decisions regarding their post mastectomy reconstruction options. A staggering 7 out of 10 women facing breast cancer are never told of their options, according to a recent report published by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. An additional study released at the 2010 American Society of Breast Surgeons (ASBS) Annual Meeting reported that 4 of 5 women do not receive breast reconstruction after mastectomy despite legislation passed more than 10 years ago requiring insurance companies to cover the cost. The results of these studies indicate how important it is for women to get as much information as possible prior to treatment.
