Family & Parenting


by Kristin Wartman

"All natural." "Farm-fresh." "Cage-free." Thanks to phrases such as these, consumer confusion is common when it comes to understanding and buying food. The battle raging in California over the labeling of genetically modified foods illustrates just how much labels do indeed matter -- to consumers as well as to corporations...

 

Editor´s Note: Is organic food truly better for us? With current new studies revealing it doesn't matter to some, Kristin Wartman spells out why the term "organic" is becoming grayer by the day. Labeling food is a big deal these days. Large companies have spent over 25 million battling Prop. 37 in California to prevent labeling genetically modified foods. Is it time to bring a few more categories into our food supply?

Over 5 million children ages four to 17 have been diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in the United States, and close to 3 million of those children take medication for their symptoms, according to the Centers for Disease Control. But a new study reported in The Lancet last month found that with a restricted diet alone, many children experienced a significant reduction in symptoms...

 

Editor's Note: Great article on the foods we are feeding our children and the diagnosis of ADHD. I found it highly applicable, especially given that we are in the holiday season and foods we indulge in may be adding to the problems associated with ADHD.

 

Family & Parenting

As I sit at my computer contemplating the subject of music and spirituality, I am simultaneously listening to music on iTunes. One of my favorite features of iTunes is the ability to create unlimited “playlists.” It has become a hobby of mine to create a playlist for every conceivable life situation. Therefore, if I am in a certain mood, I am able to escape, rejoice, console myself, etc. within the pre-programmed music of the specialized playlist...

 

Editor's Note: How does music affect the lives of children with severe developmental disabilities? Pediatric music therapist Kristen O'Grady, shares her perspective on how music can help non-verbal children share their inner voice to the outside world.

 

Music Therapy & Sound Healing


by Kristin Neff, PhD

It has become a truism in our culture that we need to have high self-esteem in order to be happy and healthy. Psychologists have conducted thousands of studies touting the benefits of self-esteem.

PsychoSpiritual

As a first time mother of an eight-and-a-half month old, I'd like to begin with a personal anecdote of how music has already had an influence on my child's life.

Since the day that we brought my son, Luke, home from the hospital, I have been playing music or singing to him (albeit, not well but he seems to like it!). I didn't think much about music having the ability to calm him down until one day I was driving down the freeway and he started to become very fussy and cry...

The science of how we taste is a big business to food companies trying to create the perfect snack to allure your taste buds and, accordingly, get you to buy just one more bag of salty, sugary and high-fructose corn syrup-laced snacks...

 

Editor´s Note: Kristina Chew nailed it when she stated, 'not everyone's taste buds are the same,' but even our own taste buds change over time. Kristina tells all on taste buds-what they do, how they work, how many we have and how being a super taster is not what it's cracked up to be.
