It doesn’t matter if you go running every morning, or you’re a regular at the gym. If you spend most of the rest of the day sitting — in your car, your office chair, on your sofa at home — you are putting yourself at increased risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, a variety of cancers and an early death...


Editor's Note: Prevention is ALWAYS better than cure. This article is by biologist and NY Times columnist, Olivia Judson, which she wrote on inactivity last year. I feel this can be very useful for doctors and patients. Waiting for the problem to find you first, before seeking out the best ways to alleviate it, is far from ideal. The last thing you want is to put yourself at risk and stopping you from doing what you love most. Enjoy!



One of the most serious problems that society faces today is the obesity epidemic. There are literally millions of people all over the world that struggle with their weight on a daily basis. The best thing to do when you find yourself a part of this struggle is to do all you can to reverse the trend. The biggest decision you will make in your fight against obesity is doing something to get the weight off of you.

Obesity is epidemic, and has many causes. One of them is that the average nights' sleep has dropped from nine hours a night to six and three-quarters hours a night over the last hundred years, and sleep is responsible for many weight and appetite controlling hormones, such as growth hormone, leptin, phrelin and ghrelin. So can you really sleep your way to skinny...

Editor´s Note from Michael Jones: Its so important to have your child eating healthy foods early in life. When your child adopts a healthy diet you can reduce your risks from child hood obesity, ADHD and asthma. Take a visit to your local Naturopathic doctor and see what foods your child should be eating.

Editor's Note from Neda Smith: Sean Croxton used to believe in the same philosophy as the majority of us of us do, that a calorie is a calorie. Over the years he has come to realize the main culprit of the obesity epidemic is no longer about fat and calorie counting, but with our consumption of sugar. This video is packed with amazing information.  Make sure to check it out.

One of the many areas we deal with in medical hypnosis has to do with weight management. Being overweight not only makes us unhappy but it is unhealthy as well.

The results of a research study, published last week in Nature Obesity online, has shown that as your weight goes up the function of your prefrontal cortex (the most human thoughtful part of the brain) goes down...

Studies show that the average American drinks an estimated 56 gallons of soft drinks each year. More than 15 billion gallons were sold in 2000. Soda accounts for more than one-quarter of all drinks consumed in the United States. In the past 10 years, soft drink consumption among children has almost doubled in the United States. Studies have linked soda to osteoporosis, obesity, tooth decay and heart disease.





from Cornucopia

By exploring exactly how the edible concoctions sold to us as “food” are made, the book sheds light on why we would all be better off eating real food, grown in soil and raised on farms, rather than the creations of food chemists in lab coats that are assembled in factories rather than cooked in kitchens...


Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Processed foods didn't just "happen," we've bought into it over a process of time. It is time to become educated on how and why we consume what we do. Handing over our health with such confidence to the powers-that-be has lead us to a doomed road of obesity, disease, and unhappiness.
