3 Real Contributors to the Obesity Epidemic
We're in the midst of an obesity epidemic that is contributing to chronic diseases like Type 2 diabetes at never-before-seen rates. Have you ever wondered why this is happening? I've boiled it down to three simple causes: seats, science projects, and outsourcing. 1. Seats We're constantly implored to "take a seat." Most of us sit all day at our desks, during interminable meetings, while commuting, and then cap off the day reclining on the couch, while gorging on mindless entertainment. We now know that seats can be hazardous to our health. They should come with a cigarette-like warning that says, "Prolonged sitting can ...

An Ancient Fix For Backache
Too many doctors refuse to think outside the narrow confines of the mainstream medical establishment – especially when it comes to chronic back pain. Back pain is one of the most common reasons Americans go to the doctor, which explains why it’s also one of America’s biggest businesses. But I never cease to be astounded when patients come to my wellness clinic with back pain and tell me they’ve already had a barrage of dangerous Big Pharma prescriptions pushed at them. These drugs include highly addictive opiates like Vicodin, Percocet and OxyContin. Meanwhile, big bucks are also made when doctors push ...

5 Ironclad Rules for Getting Through Your Breakup
A woman I know well -- we'll call her my sister -- took three years to break up with her boyfriend. She knew it had to happen; they fought all the time, he didn't treat her the way she wanted to be treated and he didn't get along with her kids. But still, they put themselves through years of unnecessary pain, unwilling or unable to step away. That's the horrific thing about breakups -- often nothing's black-and-white. When our hearts are well and truly given, they can fight hard against ending a relationship that our brains may insist isn't good for us. And even if we're not deeply in love, it can be hard to walk away fr...

The Future of Trauma
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) has been a mental health condition, classified in the Diagnostic Statistical Manual (DSM) of the American Psychiatric Association (APA), since 1980. The Diagnostic Statistical Manual (DSM-III) in 1980 classified PTSD as an anxiety disorder, DSM IV (1994) and DSM-IV Textual Revision (TR) also reaffirmed PTSD as an anxiety disorder. DSM-5 (2013) reclassified PTSD as a Trauma and Stress-Related Disorder. PTSD in terms of its longevity, 35 years as a recognized diagnosis, can be seen as a young adult.

Early Birds Versus Night Owls: What Your Bedtime Really Says About You
The tortoise and the hare. Coyote versus roadrunner. The Sharks and the Jets. There are many proverbial rivalries that have rocked this world, but perhaps none so divisive as the one between the early bird and the night owl -- two rivals who share the same world on opposing clocks. Whether you’re an early bird singing your way through morning or a night owl hooting around late at night, you can thank (or blame) your genes. The human clock follows roughly a 24-hour cycle that syncs with sequences of light and dark. What separates the night owl from the early bird is the former’s slightly longer circadian rhythm. It ...

Study Links Letting Kids Sip Alcohol To Later Drinking
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (CBS) — Letting children have even a sip of alcohol could lead to danger, according to a new study. Researchers at Brown University’s Center for Alcohol and Addiction Studies found that giving kids a taste of alcohol before the sixth grade made them five times more likely to have a full drink by ninth grade than children who never had a sip. Children who had sipped alcohol were also four times more likely to have been drunk and 3.7 times more likely to have tried binge drinking before their freshman year of high school, the study found. The study is a counterpoint to the belief that letting childre...
