Editor's Note: Superfoods aren't just for outdoor growth, according to Caroleanne Wright, author for Waking Times.

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.

1. Uranus squares the U.S. Mercury on the 24th but is a major influence all month, as it was last month. Since Mercury opposes Pluto in the U.S. horoscope, the square from transiting Uranus creates a highly polarized political climate, with plenty of fast-paced developments, and a high level of mental anxiety. Opinions may be based more on emotional, gut-level feelings (Mercury in Cancer) than facts.

I was asked recently whether there were any circumstances where homeopathy might be contra-indicated for pregnant women. The question centered on a woman in her first trimester (3 months pregnant) who had been involved in a car accident and was in a state of partial shock...
Editor´s Note: Here's a great testament to the homeopathic remedy Arnica (and its close counterpart Bellis). As well as discussing when both remedies are indicated in pregnancy, Miranda demonstrates its amazing usefulness in her own experience of injury. As always, the choice of remedy is based on the individual symptoms, the hallmark of Homeopathy.
