Affirmation of the Week
I know that God doesnít give me
anything I canít handle.
I just wish
that he didnít trust me so much.

New Feature - Health Tips of the Week

Here are the latest findings:
  • Aspirin reduces the risk of colon cancer by just taking a minimum of two 325mg tablets a week. Greatest benefit has been seen with 14 tablets a week, but must be weighed against the important risk of potential bleeding. Stick with lower amounts to hedge against colon cancer, heart attack and stroke without risking internal bleeding.
  • Moderate intake of (unsaturated) fat has been shown to be healthier than a low-fat diet for maintaining the good cholesterol in the body as well as weight loss.
  • Low testosterone levels in aging men may be responsible for depression and may predict the later onset of Alzheimerís.
  • Many people who suffer from clinical depression and chronic pain donít respond well to anti-depressants. Both conditions must be treated.
  • Remember that New Yearís Resolutions should be renamed at this point in time: New Yearís Evolutions. Keep up your motivation for better health- make it fun!
