to Lose Your Mind As You Age
Everyone has memory lapses from time to time. Most people don't worry about this when they are young, but as you grow older you may start to believe that something is going wrong with your brain. That's because we have been led to believe that memory naturally declines with age. This simply isn't true. Losing memory and cognitive power is not an inevitable part of the aging process. You are capable of producing new brain cells at any age, so there is no reason why your mental abilities have to decline as you grow older.

If one is constantly thinking negative things about oneself, or one's body, these thoughts will both create and perpetuate health problems, including excess weight.
When making dietary changes it is important to consider only those that you believe you can maintain indefinitely. This means that you should not resort to fad diets or crash diet programs. Short (one to three day) fasts can be helpful to get back on track if you feel that a weight reduction program has stalled. An approach that has worked well for many is a lemonade fast. The recipe is the juice of one organic lemon in twenty ounces of water sweetened to taste with pure maple syrup (typically 1 to 2 tablespoons). The lemonade tends to prevent fatigue or sinking spells during the fast.
Yes, there is such a thing as being addicted to stress! How could a person possibly want to overstress himself? When you are pressured to produce, the body calls on adrenaline to help meet your wishes. But adrenaline happens to closely resemble amphetamines.
The skin is the cover for the body and while we say, "Beauty is only skin deep," having healthy skin gives us more confidence to "face" life. Like the cover of a book, our skin represents us to the world. One basic health practice that keeps your skin glowing with good health is to clean up your internal "self" by doing some cleansing. Make sure you are getting adequate fiber by eating fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains and legumes. Traditionally, herbalists have used blood purifiers or alteratives to help clear up skin conditions like acne, rashes and skin eruptive diseases.
Experts estimate that long term stress is the cause of up to 90 percent of illnesses.
A recent study showed stressed workers cost the health care system almost 50 percent more than their less-stressed associates. Hence, stress is one of the underlying causes of illness that all of us need to address. Chronic stress produces a high state of anxiety. Anxiety is described as an unpleasant emotional state ranging from mild tension to profound fear. A little anxiety is normal and seems to improve performance. But when anxiety becomes chronic, the nerves are in a constant state of alertness. There is a feeling of constant danger, even when there is no obvious or immediate threat.
