Exercise is a viable, and at least as equally
effective, alternative to traditional drug therapy for depression.
The use of anti-fever drugs such as aspirin
and acetaminophen may prolong influenza A and possibly other viral infections.
High carotenoid and vitamin E levels have
been associated with significantly improved lung function in the elderly.
SUGAR: Excess sugar in the bloodstream stimulates
the generation of free radicals, which can lead to blocked arteries, cardiovascular
disease, and Type II diabetes.
HOW TO BE HAPPY
A variety of studies consistently
show four traits that characterize happy people.
people like themselves. They have high self-esteem and usually believe
themselves to be more ethical, more intelligent, less prejudiced, better
able to get along with others and healthier than the average person.
people have a sense of personal control. Those imprisoned in nursing
homes, severely impoverished or subject to autocratic regimes, or who
feel themselves victimized by everyday life circumstances which they
do not feel they can control or alter, are less happy people.
people are optimistic. They have a view to the future and are creatively
attempting to model their life in such a way as to accomplish some good
and secure peace and more happiness for the future.
people are social people. Extroverts are happier than introverts.
Married people are usually happier than single people. People who belong
to groups, clubs or other activities that result in social supportive
engagement are happier.
might add that the achievement of any of the above four goals is not
possible if health is not present. Additionally, doing something in
your life to maintain or better your health will give an important
sense of control and "superiority," both of which are important ingredients
of health to you and yours from all of us here at Wysong.
