Face to face meetings: Still the best way to learn
In an article published by the Cornell School of Hotel Administration, Christine Duffy and Mary Beth McEuen outlined why face to face meetings are the best approach to (1) capture attention, particularly when you want to initiate something new or different;
(2) inspire a positive emotional climate, as a way to catalyze collaboration, innovation and performance; and
(3) to build human networks and relationships, realizing that information can increasingly be shared virtually whereas the greater value is in people networks and relationships.

Unborn babies are hearing you, loud and clear
ICIM speaker and Healing with Language author Debra Basham writes, "This is why I encourage everyone to suggest the use of our Welcome Baby! audio. What a captive audience that unborn baby is. Make language matter."
Expectant moms who coo and chat to their babies while they’re pregnant may be doing more than stimulating the fetus. They may be shaping their child's brain, according to recent research.

Candida — A disease and a symptom
Our gastrointestinal tract contains pounds, literally pounds of beneficial bacteria. We do not survive well without these beneficial bacteria that help us fight infection, help us produce vitamins we need and help to maintain the proper balance in our gut. The problem we have is that antibiotics, a diet high in sugar, multiple surgeries, even chronic high levels of stress can suppress these beneficial bacteria.

Healing with language: Rate of speech
To allow things to be completely easy for you, in terms of rapport and understanding, remember that people speak at the rate they can comprehend language. If you speak too quickly for slow talkers, they will not be able to process everything you are saying. If you speak too slowly for a quick talkers, they will fill in the perceived gaps between your words with their own ideas.

New information about Gardasil
By Derrick Lonsdale, MD, FACN, CNS
Derrick Lonsdale writes, "I received an email from a mother of a 17-year-old daughter who had received Gardasil vaccination in 2008 resulting in a severe reaction. Two weeks after the second injection she began to experience a "flu-like" episode that continued for about a week and was followed by facial swelling, streptococcal infection, double ear infection and a diagnosis of mononucleosis. It was initially concluded that this was coincidental, not due to the vaccination. From then on she suffered from Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, severe edema and “digestion issues which have been constant since."

What does the government have against small farmers?
Alliance for Natural Health U.S.A.
When the Food Safety Modernization Act was originally proposed in 2010, we and many other organizations were troubled. Small farm and organic food advocates warned that the legislation would destroy their industry under a mountain of paperwork and other requirements. Now, through the rulemaking process, the FDA is trying to change the law in such a way that the hard-won exceptions provided by the Tester-Hagan Amendment are endangered.

Do PPIs have long-term side effects?
Madison Avenue has given stomach acid a bad name but it's really kind of a bum rap. Dip into any physiology textbook, and you'll find that stomach acid serves several constructive purposes. Pepsin, an enzyme that is essential to the preliminary digestion of protein, needs an acidic environment in the stomach to be effective. The strongly acidic hydrochloric acid pumped out by cells in the lining of the stomach also plays a direct role in the early digestion of some foods. And stomach acidity is a built-in barrier to infection.

Europeans and Canadians enjoy antibiotic-free organic apples and pears, so why can't we?
Alliance for Natural Health U.S.A
In 2011, the National Organic Standards Board voted to prohibit antibiotics after Oct. 2014. But growers have now petitioned NOSB for more time, so NOSB may delay the sunset date until 2016, unnecessarily exposing both orchards and consumers to streptomycin for at least two additional years. Why should you be concerned about antibiotics in your fruit? We are facing an epidemic of disease-causing pathogens that are resistant to antibiotics.
