Chemotherapy Doesn't Work, So Blame Vitamin C
(OMNS, October 7, 2008) When Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center announces that vitamin C may interfere with chemotherapy, the news media trumpet it far and wide. But before cancer patients throw away their vitamin C supplements, they need to know rest of the story.
Most of the media dutifully reported the researchers' claim that the… Continue

‘Twas the last big run before the big show on Saturday. I ran with Lisa most of the way and as usual, carried on our unique conversations. One of the questions we always seem to ponder is why some people continue with running (or anything else) and do well, while others fall by the wayside after a period of time.
Over the years, I was in the unique position of treating people from all over the globe, from billionaires to though who had six cents to their name. From artists to… Continue

Laugh and cry.
There’s an old Joni Mitchell song, “People’s Parties,” that says, “ … laughing and crying, you know it’s the same release.” This lyric was a favorite of mine long before I learned that laughing and crying really do produce the same effect in the body. They both release tension from the nervous system. A good laugh or cry also pumps the energy that resides underneath our navel area, the “source of life,” according to Ayurveda, the ancient Hindu healing… Continue

Stages of Life
Where do you want to be 10 years from now? 20 years? What about today, are you where you want to be?
These are the questions often asked by self-help gurus, teachers and mentors. I find these questions to be a little frustrating because I have so many ideas and thoughts about who I want to be when I grow up. Yes, even at the age of 42, I feel… Continue

The Kuna people of the San Blas islands, off the coast of Panama, have a rate of heart disease that is nine times less than that of mainland Panamanians. The reason? The Kuna drink plenty of a beverage made with generous proportions of cocoa, which is unusually rich in flavanols that help preserve the healthy function of blood vessels. Maintaining youthful blood vessels lowers risk of high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, kidney disease and dementia.

Through the ages, games have always been played as societal learning tools, offering an experiential way to demonstrate and practice underlying principles and philosophies. Games are a fun way for people to “pass time”, for groups to connect together and for "the masses" to understand specific aspects of life and our human nature.
MONOPOLY was popularized in the US during the great depression of the 1930's. It became an engaging training platform to better understand how to work with… Continue

Who Manifests What?
Everybody is ‘manifesting’ their lives these days. It is the new way to get what you want. But this thing leaves me confused. I just can’t wrap myself around it. Perhaps you can help me.
To manifest something I first ask myself, “What do I really want?” I mean - really! Yes, I want a million dollars, a perfect partner and great health - but more than that I want to be free.
I’m told I can manifest my ‘extraordinary self.’ Sounds like a… Continue

Forget about money. Don't fret about youth. Acting happy is likely to make you happy.
There are happy people. Researchers at the National Institute on Aging found that well-being is strongly influenced by enduring characteristics of the individual. In a 10-year study, they found that, regardless of whether their marital status, job, or residence had changed, people with a happy disposition in 1973 were still happy in 1983. There's good news in these findings: Given the right… Continue

Okay, it is early in the morning and you b-line for the refrigerator to get that wake-me-up glass of orange juice. It sounds like a healthy idea, fruit, vitamin C—what could be wrong with that? Well, in all honesty, it isn’t so great. Sure, it is better than a glass of coke or any other sugary, high-fructose-corn-syrupy beverage, but it isn’t as healthy as you might think.
Here Are the Facts
It takes three to four standard oranges to make one 8-ounce glass of orange… Continue

Notes to Myself
I was walking with my second graders down the hallway when one of my special students accidentally bumped into the fire alarm. There is a plastic, protective casing over it and when he knocked into it, it fell off and started to make a whirring noise. He was so mortified he put his hands over his ears and started crying. I consoled him and was explaining to him everyone makes mistakes and accidents happen. I told him its no big deal, we can resolve this. We knocked on… Continue

Next week is the UM-Day — October 11, Saturday is my Ultra Marathon. Many people have wished me well and suggested I “keep it in perspective, keep it in balance.” I gave that phrase a great deal of thought and concluded that is the last thing I will do.
The fact is, I do not want this in balance nor perspective. It will be one of the Memorable Days of my life. You know the kind — the special events, the first home run, marathon, meeting your wife, birthdays, exceptional vacations… Continue

I watched a commercial the other day with Robert Redford who started off with “As it relates to Global Warming and the environment, there is no debate. . . .” Why is there no debate Bob?? There are many of us who think that global warming and the “green movement” are politically motivated fairy tales. Why not debate it?! If I am wrong, I really want to know. I owe it to my fellow citizens and the planet to alter my behavior. Recycling plastics and newspapers and buying recycled products is… Continue

We want to be happy, want to eliminate what is bothering us, want to be free from stress and from pain and live a life filled with light.
We want to live in a state that is commonly known as heaven.
Well, my friends, that's just not good enough!
Heaven, you see, is one of the states of mind or existence we pass through on our journey. There is heaven (we've all had glimpses of that), there is hell (yep, been there), there is the human state and the animal state.… Continue

The beginning of autumn means that we're entering apple season, which will be a time of cider, desserts, and the crisp, wholesome goodness of the fruit freshly picked from your local orchard. Apples have been a staple of healthy eating for many years, and the often-repeated line of an apple a day keeping the doctor away is far from a myth.
