Editor's Note from Neda Smith: Peter Attia, a surgeon, used to feel contempt with patients with diabetes. He felt that it was their fat was their fault and thus responsible for the foot amputation.

A new study published in the journal Arthritis compared ginger extract to the common drugs betamethasone (cortisone) and ibuprofen for the treatment of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis...
Editor's Note: Reaching for ibuprofen or any other over-the-counter pain remedy may be the norm when it comes to achiness and muscle pain, but current studies reveal that ginger can be a highly effective treatment, reducing inflammation and breaking down acidity in the fluid surrounding joints. This article highlights not only ways to pitch ginger into the diet, but also proves why this amazing root has persisted in the Ayurvedic diet for centuries.
Editor's Note: It's so nice to see more medical doctors throwing their support behind a whole foods diet as a primary means to support and maintain optimum health. Dr. Mark Hyman, MD is among them.
Editor's Note: As someone who is always trying to get more calcium into my diet, I love kale, like other leafy greens it's calcium is more bioavailable than that which comes from animal sources! However, I do find it hard to eat raw, but not after watching how it is prepared here. Just as Jennifer says, cutting it up super small and massaging it are absolutely key steps! The kale truly does get soft without losing valuable vitamins and enzymes. Kale also happens to have a lot of Vitamin K, something we absolutely need for the health of our blood and Vitamin A an extremely important vitamin for the health of our eyes.

They watch their diet, get plenty of sleep and exercise regularly, monitor their stress levels, try not to worry too much, even practice meditation or a mind/body discipline. Some may imagine, I suppose, that the human's natural state of being is eternal optimal health...
Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Sometimes I think I shouldn't get sick or become injured if I do everything right and try to live in a healthy way....and if I do become sick or injured, what did I do wrong? Arthur's article is a wonderful reminder that life is plastic and in a continual flow. It's the overall quality of life that living in a healthy way provides that gives the joy in living.
