For many years, clinicians have been aware that oxytocin sufficiency plays a critical role in labor and delivery, lactation and autism; however, volumes of recent studies have shown that oxytocin also plays a key role in maintaining other aspects of overall health. Research confirms that adequate oxytocin is critical for normal cellular function in other organ systems.

Resorting to drugs
Conrad Maulfair, D.O.    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
There are so many people who take street drugs and medical drugs thinking it will be for a short while and wind up long down the road with health problems they never dreamed of. Addiction is just part of the problem. Damage from free radicals, which are the stock in trade of chemicals, do something to your health. Combined with pesticides and chemicals in the food we eat, someone with a drug problem gets a double whammy. More

Healing with Language: The Meaning of a Message
SCS Matters    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A useful observation about the communication process that comes from neurolinguistic programming is that "the meaning of a message is the response it elicits." It's a bit of a tongue twister, the idea is really clear: People tend to think that, if they say it, others will know what they meant and behave accordingly. Unfortunately, it isn't that easy.

Fortunately, you can usually tell what others think you meant by the way they respond. Sometimes it is a matter of word choice. An X-ray revealed that Joel was having a problem with a tooth, and his dentist recommended a root canal. Because there was no pain, Joel asked when it needed to be done. The dentist said, "If there's no pain, it is not an emergency."

Joel dawdled and had not seen the orthodontist by the time of his next dental check-up. This time the dentist said, "While it is not an emergency, there is urgency. Have this done quickly to avoid bone loss." The change in language resulted in a change in behavior.

When Debra's nephew was about 4 years old, he asked his grandmother if he could drink out of the Kool-Aid pitcher. His grandmother said, "No, you cannot drink out of that heavy pitcher." Immediately, he picked it up, tipped it back, and took a big glug. With a look of utter accomplishment, he gleefully said, "Sure I can. See!"

Even while you think of a variety of possible treatment and drink options, notice that the meaning of the message really is the response it elicits. To change the behavior, change the message.

As you integrate this awareness, you are able to help patients and clients see themselves doing what is really good for them. "As you are doing your daily exercise more regularly, notice if you will also naturally start to sleep better, too."

California's food labeling Prop. 37 is in dead heat amid ad blitz
Los Angeles Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
VideoBrief Once riding high, Proposition 37, the statewide ballot measure to label genetically engineered foods, has seen its voter support plummet, and a new poll shows the high-stakes battle now is a dead heat. After a barrage of negative television advertisements financed by a $41 million opposition war chest, a USC Dornsife / Los Angeles Times poll showed 44 percent of surveyed voters backing the initiative and 42 percent opposing it.

Can hormone therapy help protect the brain?
Health    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A decade ago, researchers shocked women around the world when they abruptly halted a landmark clinical trial on hormone therapy, a drug regimen widely used to relieve hot flashes, night sweats and other unpleasant symptoms of menopause. Since then, however, doctors have begun to reexamine hormone therapy and the conclusions of the Women's Health Initiative. In the latest such study, researchers report that taking hormones may actually lower, not raise, the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease. More

Really? Celiac disease is influenced by season of birth
The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
"Gluten-free" is a buzzword these days. But even as awareness of celiac disease grows, its cause remains unclear to scientists. One hypothesis is that the season in which a person is born may influence the development of this digestive disorder. Some researchers suspect that babies born in spring and summer are more susceptible to the disease, which is triggered by the gluten in wheat, barley and rye. More
