Do you know anyone, a friend, family member, co-worker or acquaintance who considers himself or herself a perfectionist? If so, have you ever noticed that they seem somewhat edgy, on guard or perhaps demanding?
We live in a very competitive world and it is important to have high personal and professional standards. However, when a person’s standard or goal is perfection, they may not realize that they are setting themselves up to experience more frustration, anxiety, and disappointment than is necessary. The goal of perfection is unrealistic...

Many of you might know of my intention behind writing this note at a very short notice. I was just shocked to see that we are not aware of what to do in case of accidental needle prick from an HIV infected source.
I will try to give all details at my level best so that in future this type of situation could not arise...
Editor's Note: I would like to wish our all of our readers a very happy new year. Here I am posting very useful information about AIDS for health professionals as well as the general public. This is one of the least talked about subjects but a very, very important topic as many of our doctors don't clearly know what action to take.
Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro: This is a stream of testimonials from the world's top athletes. You don't need to be a professional athlete to benefit from Chiropractic as much as they do. We have spines and a nervous system just like them!
Editor's Note from Melinda Wilson: Increasing public awareness and acting as an advocate for music therapy is a big part of a music therapist's job these day! This video, which is the first of two, includes interviews with several music therapists and allied professionals who use their own words to respond to some frequently asked questions about music therapy. Many of these music therapists wish to promote an increase in the availability of music therapy in hospitals, schools, rehabilitation centers, and more. If you still have some questions regarding music therapy, this is a great video watch!
Editor's Note from Karen Adler: Beautiful! … I'm an Artist, tells the story of the often hidden children of our times-students with learning disabilities.

Like eczema, asthma is an inflammatory disease. In asthma the airways become constricted by swelling, making it difficult to breathe. In developed countries 1 in 4 children have asthma as opposed to 1 in 18 people 40 years ago. Homeopathic medicines can be a viable alternative to steroid medications. They can be given as an acute treatment in place of puffers but more importantly, professional treatment–working with the whole person–can cure asthma entirely...
Editor's Note: Artistically powerful and poignant, this is an amazing and graceful dance that I hope has a healing message to us all: that even in darkness there is light; even in the shadow of the veiled/death, there is beauty and hope anew. Perhaps this is a healing for the loss in Japan as Tamasaburo is a professional Japanese actor and he dances as if in a candlelight vigil.
