Modern Medicine Has Extended Life - BUT 9 Out of 10 People Say Its a Miserable Extension!
Sit down in a quiet place alone and take a minute to notice how you really feel inside and out? Would you consider yourself in good health or living a slow death you call life? As you sit quietly observing yourself, pay attention to the signs and symptoms of your body. Notice the things you've been ignoring such as a low-grade headache that rarely ceases, aching joints, slightly blurred vision, a bulging stomach, sagging chin, no zest for life or maybe a definite feeling of being bone tired and constantly in pain somewhere.
The ease and efficiency of your body to function properly, providing you with a painless, disease free, energetic, lean existence is within your realm of control. To accomplish this type of life-style, you need to have the know-how and be able to read the signs along the freeway of life that leads to excellent health.
Health is an ongoing process of constant change. Over the past 20 years in the health and nutrition business we (here at EAT & Be Lean) have discovered that there are five levels of health. You must become aware of what these levels are and how to move up the scale. These levels of health are discussed in the EAT & Be Lean Common Sense Health Solutions newsletter at www.EATandBeLean.com. Do you wonder which one you fit into today? The one you fit into is your choice! The following will give you a brief description of a level one approach to health.
The level one motto is, "Eat, drink and be merry if possible, for today and every day I will live a slow, miserable, death process."
Water is used mainly for bathing, swimming and watering the plants. Heaven forbid they should drink it! Examples of level one drinks are soda pop (especially caffeinated colas) beer, and high sugar juices.
Vegetables are little known substances to level one people with French fries now listed at the number one consumed vegetable for our youth. Ketchup runs a tight second. How pathetic! Grains are rarely recognized as anything at all. There is little understanding about the possibilities of the variety and use of grains. Level one products are "enriched" white breads, white buns, white pastas and white rice. Fruits are obtained mainly through juices (as mentioned earlier) that contain very little, if any of the original fiber content of the whole fruit. Sugar content is high here. Proteins are in the form of meats (95% of the time) and are a main course at every meal. Lots of red meats are used such as hamburger, hotdogs, and bacon, Spam, roast, pork chops, etc. Deserts after meals and on an empty stomach are the rule. Candy will frequently be the substitute for an entire meal or two each day.
At level one, microwave ovens are their only source for cooking; regardless of forthcoming information as to the damage it causes within the body. After all, "quick and easy" is the key to everything for the bargain basement of health!
For level one people, exercise seems confusing and an unnecessary source of pain. It is disregarded completely. Television is their main activity during the day. Their eyes are the most exercised portions of their body along with their index finger on the remote control hand. When and if family activities do take place, their participation is quite brief and may end in a nap while the festivities carry on without them.
Overall there is very little understanding for good health principles at level one. They talk as though they know a lot about how the body functions, but in fact they know very little. They can be found quoting studies that support their destructive habits and attitudes. Many can hardly remember what it feels like to feel good and may even have lost their ability to compare. Level one people eat out often. Some eat out every meal! They often smoke, drink alcoholic beverages under the guise of medication and use a variety of medications for every ailment under the sun (which they will experience). Antibiotics and Prozac are taken like vitamins! Drugs are always overused, abused and addictive. These people are commonly late to bed and if at all possible, late to rise. They either sleep too many hours or can't sleep well at all.

Erasing the Stigma of Mental Illness
As a physician specializing in psychiatry, I know that many emotional conditions such as depression and anxiety disorders are true medical illnesses with a biologic (physical) origin. Psychiatry has become more and more "biological" in its diagnosis and treatment approaches during recent years, but a very significant stigma still exists against those who are seeing a therapist. This has become increasingly difficult to understand, but it is a social stigma that is so very important to eliminate.
Strong Pain Relief - Powerful & Effective Natural Pain Management Alternative
The recent removal of several high profile and popular prescription pain medications of the same pharmaceutical family, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories, from the buyer's market has left many people searching for a safer alternative for powerful, fast and effective pain relief. The most recent removal was Pfizer's pulling of Bextra, citing serious skin reactions, sometimes fatal, and two others, Vioxx and Celebrex have been linked to heart related risks. The dangerous side effects of this particular family of medications is definitely cause for alarm, and has many seeking alternatives that will manage their pain effectively, without the serious risks of several pharmaceutical pain killers.

According to Dr. Nathan Wei, "The hand and wrist are the mirrors of disease." While the cause of hand pain can be a localized problem, hand pain can also be the presenting sign for other diseases.
Oral Chelation ? Is It Better Than Intravenous Chelation?
Intravenous Chelation was the most common practice until a few years back; however, with the introduction of oral chelation it became the preferred choice of most patients and doctors. There were a number of contributing factors to this shift of choice, the prime aspect being the cost factor. Though intravenous chelation would not cost you a fortune, still the cost will be way above the price of Oral Chelation. This initiated the use of oral chelation among the customers who were using intravenous chelation. Once they started using it on a regular basis the other benefits of oral chelation became more evident.

Neurontin Lawsuit: Neurontin Off-Label Abuse Lawyer
Pfizer is currently marketing Neurontin as an oral medication for managing postherptic neuralgia, the pain that lingers after shingles has healed.

Generic Drug: Its Pros and Cons
A generic drug can be defined as an identical, or bioequivalent to a brand name drug in its dosage form, safety, strength, route of administration, quality, performance characteristics and intended use. Although generic drugs are chemically identical to their branded counterparts, they are typically sold at substantial discounts from the branded price. The difference between a branded and a generic one is only in its name and price. A generic drug is called by its chemical name whereas a manufacturer assigns a brand name.
Lunesta Memory Problems
Lunesta may be the only sleeping pill that is FDA approved for long-term use, but it still has some of the same effects as other sleep aids. Ambien, Sonata and others have all been known to cause this problem. It can make life strange and difficult for some of us.

Treating Neuromas - Ten Tips
A neuroma is an inflamed nerve. In the foot, the most common place for a neuroma is between the third and fourth toes. The main nerve to your foot originates in the spine and travels down the back of the leg to the bottom of the foot and out to the toes. When the nerve becomes irritated, electrical or burning pain shoots out to the toes when walking. The second, third and fourth toes can become numb. There can be a sensation of walking on a lamp cord or a lump. Removing the shoe and massaging the ball of the foot can bring relief.

Accutane Side Effects Lawyer: Hair Loss, Depression, Suicide
You probably know the drug isotretinoin by its trade name, accutane. Accutane is a powerful drug often used to treat acne. Unlike other acne treatments, which are simply antibacterial agents, accutane actually changes the composition of the skin. Accutane causes skin to produce less oil, which almost always results in a reduction of acne. Accutane is very powerful and effective, but this comes with some very dangerous side effects that everybody should be aware of. If used or administered improperly, accutane can do more harm than good.
Rogue Online Pharmacies: The Internet War Of 2005
Online Pharmacy owners who haven't been working within moral and governmental regulations are in for the ride of their lives. In past months, many of these so called "rogue pharmacies" have either voluntarily shut down or been closed by the powers that be. However, the major illegitimate players have been unable to cover their tracks, and some have been outright irresponsible.

Robotic Future of Hospitals; Pandemic Prevention and Bio-Terrorist Attack
There is a huge concern in the medical industry that if a biological weapon were released that those sick might come to the hospitals in such large numbers that before you realized an attack had occurred everyone in every nearby hospital would also be infected. Then of course the hospital itself would be rendered useless and all those already in the hospital no matter what the reason would literally condemned. The biggest issue with this is that those places we have available to help our populations stay well would be immediately and totally useless. For some background on the World Think Tank discussion and on-going subject of bio-terrorism control and isolation, please see this page:
The Ease of Using a Motorized Wheelchair to Improve Mobility
No person likes to feel housebound and dependent on others. While people who have been injured or suffering from a debilitating disease may not have full functionality of their motor skills, it is still possible for them to be semi-independent and mobile with motorized wheelchairs and other home medical equipment. It can't be over emphasized how critical that sense of independence can be. Quality, dependable Motorized Wheelchairs and other home medical equipment are the means of transportation that many people choose as their way to get around.
