As for the health care of the future, “It’s not simply about what’s being done to us, but instead we must examine why we become victims and catalysts for the business of disease. We must examine what we can do to change this for ourselves instead of waiting on the system to fix things for us.” -  Sonia Barrett
According to the 1933 obituaries in both Time Magazine and the New York Times, Li Ching-Yun was reported to have buried 23 wives and fostered 180 descendants by the time he died at the age of 256. Was he really that old? Could he have forgotten his own birthday or exaggerated his claim? Environmental Graffiti investigates. "The Secrets to an Interminable Life "Keep a quiet heart, sit like a tortoise, walk sprightly like a pigeon and sleep like a dog." These were the words of advice Li gave to Wu Pei-fu, the warlord, who took Li into his house to…
The idea that our health, longevity and overall life is not confined to any one rule of thought but can be changed in a moment. Through Dr. Ellen Langer's work we see proof of this kind of plasticity. She speaks of mindfulness which is really about being right here right now as opposed to the autopilot nature in which we normally run our lives. She has done experiments that show that by planting and experiencing new things our health, happiness and longevity can be more of what we would like them to be. Dr. Langer shows us what we buy…
  Human behavior is at times questionable and in may cases a result of conditions that seem to slip by unnoticed. Daylight Savings Time is one of those conditions.

Does Gluten free mean healthier foods?

  Does Gluten free mean healthier foods? We live in a trend driven society and because of this important questions are seldom asked. There is confusion for much of the general public in determining what is healthy. It is for this reason that Dr. Oz has become such an overnight sensation. People need to be instructed and prefer to have a more qualified party conduct the research and notify us of our options and in most cases simply narrow our options. The gluten free diet is spreading due to the obvious health issues resulting from gluten foods. There is however…
Study questions how much better organic food is 1.“Unsure, Stanford University doctors dug through reams of research to find out — and concluded there's little evidence that going organic is much healthier, citing only a few differences involving pesticides and antibiotics.” The ongoing attempt to authorize and validate harmful pesticides in conventionally grown foods is offensive.

Analyzing the side effects of drug ads

We have all heard television pharmaceutical ads marketing symptoms as well as drugs. Following these ads are a long list of potential side effects.

Fear can be a major deciding factor. “Ask your doctor if it’s right for you” the next common line. While the body might at times do strange things and sometimes presents similar symptoms to those being mentioned by these ads it is realized that a number of people will…
"The most significant factor in natural vision improvement seems to be in the mind, not in the eyes" This is a powerful statement made by Dr. Jacob Liberman, Optometrist. In realizing that the eyes are much more than a tool for viewing the physical world but is also a reflector of our vision and perhaps the nearsitedness or shortsitedness of our perception. How we view and experience life is based on the distance of our vision. In The Business of Disease Dr. Liberman explains much about failing vision improvable by shifts in our awareness.  The regulation of our health and…
