Swiss scientists explored a technique they call "neurofeedback" to cool some of the toxic heart heat that plagues so many modern people, especially youth. ADHD is a prime example of this hurry-up culture of speed, busyness, and unrealistic expectations. More movement means more friction. Excess friction creates the kind of heat you do not want.
While drug-free techniques like neurofeedback and acupuncture can be very useful in suppressing the heat, only wellness coaching will reach the embers and extinguish the blaze for good.
The American Academy of Sleep Medicine has earned another grant by declaring that "sleep is a biological necessity, and insufficient sleep and untreated sleep disorders are detrimental for health, well-being, and public safety."
BodyTrust will help you to listen to and trust your body on all issues of wellness, including sleep and rest. Just like your rechargeable batteries, your body will send you notifications all the time on its energy and other needs. Go to bed earlier if you have to. A well-rested body means a well-rested mind.
Researchers from the University of Michigan describe how people with fibromyalgia are substituting CBD for opioids to manage pain. They key word here is MANAGE.
CBD is relatively safe. However, unless the roots of the disorder are addressed, long-term sedation by whatever means is addictive and abusive.
Chinese medicine approaches fibromyalgia from the opposite point of view. Liver qi stagnation is the obvious diagnosis. Activating qi rather than sedating qi is our answer. Ultimately, a person's DEMONS must be faced and befriended for the achievement of wellness.
Researchers from the Cleveland Clinic found that among covid survivors, the risk of hospital admission after the acute phase of the disease was 30% higher in obese patients. Several studies show that obese people are more susceptible to covid infection, and more sensitive to the vaccines as well.
Fat cells are stationary fuel storage containers. The bigger they are, the harder it is for anything to move around or through them. That includes your defense force (immune system), and the flow of blood and fluids. Blockages provide cover for small battalions of covid to hide out and conduct guerilla campaigns.
While I was perusing the daily medical news one morning, I ran across this headline from Ohio State University, a school that rides the gravy train of the food and diet industries, through one of their front groups: "Adults who skip morning meal likely to miss out on nutrients." As usual, they did not provide evidence of nutritional-deficiency-related disease epidemics among non-breakfast eaters.
In a nation and society in which the majority are sickening and dying from excessive nutrition, the clamor to eat more never stops. And with it, food shaming. Gosh, if you don't follow the rule on breakfast, what kind of low-life are you? BodyTrust tells me to avoid eating in the a.m. as. It slows me down.
Researchers at McMaster University in Ontario, Canada have developed a promising new cancer immunotherapy that uses cancer-killing cells genetically engineered outside the body to find and destroy malignant tumors. We all await further developments in this exciting area of investigation.
However, treating something after it happens will not constitute a "cure." In the case of unwanted growths, prevention and cure are usually synonymous. Only wellness will address the ultimate causes of tumors and correct them.
Whether you are treating a health problem gently and effectively, or preventing problems, Eight-Principle-based Chinese medicine is the gold standard for out modern world.
As Chinese culture continues to spread around the globe, Chinese medical theory will come to play a central role in the field of wellness.
