The sleep, weight and pain connection
We all know the importance of sleep on our overall health, including our ability to heal. We don't know about you but when we miss a night's sleep for whatever reason, it is very difficult to function at an optimal level the next day. But for some people, lack of good sleep is a chronic problem. They have been plagued with bad sleep for years and struggle with it day after day.

A sauna a day keeps the doctor away
In Roman days, the steam bath was a place to relax, get clean and socialize. The Arab culture appreciated the sauna for its cleanliness and purification. The Finns thought of the sauna as a place not only to cleanse but also to heal. Finnish culture thought so highly of sauna that every homestead built a sauna first and then the home. For the Finns, the sauna was the poor man's medicine. While Western medicine is now the mainstay for treatment in Finland, it is still customary to share the sauna at least once weekly on Sunday.

Yes, they are very efficient at it. They work by poisoning an enzyme — HMG-CoA reductase.
Healing with language: The map is not the territory
Some foundational ideas are underneath neurolinguistic programming. The first of these presuppositions — considered "useful" rather than "true" — is that the "map" or internal representation is not the same as the "territory" of external reality. The expression was coined by Alfred Korzybski in his introduction to general semantics. From the standpoint of communication, the problem is that when individuals assume that what they perceive with their senses is accurate, if others have a different perception, the other must be wrong.

Common insecticides may be linked to children's behavior problems
Organophosphate pesticides are known for their hazards to human health. Prenatal exposure, for example, has been linked to delayed brain development, reduced IQ and attention deficits. As a result, pyrethroids — synthetic chemicals derived from natural chemicals found in chrysanthemums — have risen in popularity over the past decade. There are currently more than 3,500 commercial products containing this insecticide. This includes items like roach sprays, flea bombs and dog flea or tick collars and medicated shampoos.
