Coffee's ability to forestall mental decline has been the subject of some very interesting research lately. First, a study from France showed that women who drank three or more cups of coffee daily were 30 percent less likely to have memory problems at age 65 than women who drank a single cup of coffee or less.
The study, published in the August 7, 2007, issue of Neurology, found that the benefit of drinking coffee increased with age: memory decline among women over 80 who drank… Continue

Let's face it, our collective consciousness is running a fever. As if fear of recession wasn't enough, the threatening collapse of the banking system is really shaking us up, making us hold tight to our wallets, and secretly wishing Mommy would come and make it all better.
Of course that 'Mommy,' that being with the magical touch that can make us feel good when things are scary, is none other than us. And we can do it. All it takes is the correct knowledge of how we function and the… Continue

Funny how the “right” things come to you at the “right” time. I hit a snag a few weeks ago and was caught in an internal web of irritation, frustration and a few other -tions. Some topics for me are pure poison and when I make the mistake of engaging in them, I venture down a path of very low energy. Some things bring out the best in a person. This brought out the worst.
In this midst of this internal battle, I read an exceptionally written article on Systema (not really a big… Continue

Notes to Myself
I was speaking with my dear friend about his desire of letting go. I wanted to know what he was letting go of. All of it he said. I wanted a list. In fact, I whipped out my journal and made a list of everything I wanted to let go of. My friend replied I am letting go of the energy of all the things I am carrying. He told me I was being too analytical about it, rather than just experiencing it. Yes, that is my Aquarian nature, think, analyze, think,… Continue

It is my firm belief, and has been my personal experience, as well, that in order to get the most out of our lives, and to do the very best we can in this event we call life, we must train for it.
Today, my life is in transition. And though the truth is, we are, for the most part, all changing, pretty much all of the time, there are still those really big transitions like: losing a job, going away to school, leaving (or being left by) a mate, losing a mate, having a baby,… Continue

Ah yes... what IS going on? Long and short of it is that real estate is a cyclical business and always has been. It goes up, it peaks, it comes back down, it bottoms and comes back up again. When you look at the graphs, the good news is that the NEW peak each cycle normally exceeds the PRIOR peak! So it's a win-win if you buy and sell at the right times... but... our the specific circumstances of our LIVES don't always cooperate with what's "best" in the market, do they?
Right now,… Continue

Have you ever had the experience whereby Nature, God, the Universe, call it what you will, seems to give you confirmation that you are on the right path? I made the commitment to study Russian and a week later, I came across one of the most interesting health providers in Russian history, Porphyry Ivanov.
Ivanov was a teacher, healing and ecentric who lived to the age of 85, at a time and in a place where such an age was uncommon. His life was ordinary until the age of 35, when he… Continue

Just this weekend, one four-year old child was shot to death by her father in a domestic dispute, one five-year old child was recovered dead, six children were taken by Child Services Council after being uncovered in a child pornography stint taking place in a religious establishment whose owner was a convicted racketeer. This all came to my awareness not while I was intentionally seeking this type of news. It came while I was changing the tv channel Friday night, changing NPR radio news… Continue

Low self-esteem can negatively affect virtually every part of your life, including your relationships, your job and your health. But you can raise your self-esteem to a healthy level, even if you're an adult who's been harboring a negative self-image since childhood.
Changing the way you think about yourself and your life is essential to boosting self-esteem. Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) techniques are especially helpful in changing unhealthy thinking and behavior patterns. These… Continue

Like a scene out of Star Trek, someday our doctors may simply wave a handheld device over our bodies and instantly diagnose any malady. In the meantime, however, it’s important to keep abreast of the latest tests that can help us stay healthy - especially those that uncover risks before symptoms actually occur.
The following five tests are not yet considered as routine as cholesterol or blood-sugar tests, but chances are your doctor already is familiar with them. Not every test is… Continue

As early as the days of the ancient Greeks, history records people with disabilities riding horses for their healing powers. Orbasis of ancient Lydia documented the therapeutic value of riding in 600 B.C. Even then, horses were more than transportation; they provided a way of improving the health and well-being of people with all infirmities.
The first organized study of the value of riding as therapy was reported in 1875. French physician Cassaign used riding as a treatment for a… Continue

It’s hard to overestimate the importance of eating breakfast. Studies show that people who take time for a morning meal consume fewer calories over the course of the day, have stronger cognitive skills, and are 30 percent less likely to be overweight or obese. Beyond that, people who skip breakfast are more likely to drink alcohol and smoke, and they’re less likely to exercise.
But just because breakfast is the most important meal of the day doesn’t grant you permission to go into a… Continue

A lot of us are out there watching what we eat and exercising, but still not making a dent in our bellies and body weight. There are a few things we are probably not doing, or doing too much of, that would mean major improvements in our health.
Get more sleep.
After a very short period of time (about 6 nights), studies show that your glucose levels can rise if you get only 4 to 7 hours of sleep each night. New parents are excluded, but everyone else should try to hit the 8… Continue

Frogs are really amazing athletes. They don’t get all the press that their lizard bretheren the snake, gets. Sure anacondas can swim like Michael Phelps, despite being 20 feet long. And black mambas can move at 12mph. Water moccasins can leap at a distance 3 times their body length. But what about our friends, the frog. They are like the Rodney Dangerfield of the reptile world. They just don’t get respect as the great athletes they are.
Think about it. They sit in a awkward position… Continue
