Anyone can become enraged once in a while. But if you feel rage boiling within almost constantly, or rage erupts from you frequently, you may have an organic illness.
On the other hand, you might have suffered some terrible injustice as a child.

Iodine deficiency was first recognized almost 80 years ago, as a cause of goiter. During the 1920's it was determined that the MINIMUM daily requirement for adults was 150 micrograms daily. Deficiencies lead not only to goiter but, when iodine-deficient pregnant women delivered babies, the brain of the newborn was severely damaged, leading to cretinism. Salt was iodized in order to supply this essential nutrient. However, only half the salt in the U.S. is iodized and for 50 years physicians have recommended minimizing salt intake. In the past 15 years average intake in this country has fallen from 300 to 150 micrograms daily...

Guilt is an emotion that can play a large role in many relationships. Often it arises when we behave in a way that violates the expectations of others. After we realize that we may have disappointed someone or hurt them, we regret our actions and seek to repair the damage. While this emotion can often be uncomfortable, some psychologists argue that guilt is an evolutionary adaptation designed to improve our relationships. Guilt is often what drives us to apologize after we have done something wrong...
Editor´s Note from Debbie Allen: In any intimate relationship, we may say something we later regret or cross a boundary that is in conflict with our values. It is important to repair these relationship injuries and to find ways to also alleviate our feelings of guilt.

Acne is a much more serious condition than it appears at first glance. Of course there is the obvious damage it does to the skin, but the more serious damage occurs on the inside...
