More so today than perhaps ever before, much of society is obsessed with a consciousness of health, not seen previously. Large numbers of people today are addicted to bottled water, gym workouts, low-fat foods, and artificial sweeteners, as never before.
Areas of this general obsession can be categorized into larger-than-life "dedication" to
- Healthy Eating Habits
- Limitations on Tobacco and Alcohol usage
- Elimination of Life's Stressors
But, succeeding in these areas, as everyone knows, is much easier said than done. Thus, a self-help culture has evolved, whereby so-called experts, from Dr. Atkins to Dr. Phil, instruct the common man on how to live his life. Some of these life Gurus have the expertise and ability to make a difference, but many are little more than charlatans, getting rich off of the hopes, and dollars, of others.

Health care workers agree that a healthy lifestyle requires exercise. But, what is correct for you? What type of exercise? How much exercise? How do you determine the right answers to these questions?
Well, you could watch a Richard Simmons video, or walk into a high-priced gym and sign a 2-year contract to let group of strangers inflict unknown and unbearable exercise regimens upon your person. Rather than talking one of these paths, a better alternative would be to take a look at the Mayo Clinic Tools for Healthy Living website.
The most important 10 minutes you may spend this year could be reading their Seven specific ways exercise can improve your life.
Their bottom line inducement to "getting physical" is that above all else, remember that exercise can be fun. Exercise does not have to be boring and tedious calisthenics, but it can be ballroom dancing. It doesn't have to be 4 solitary laps around a high school track, it can be a neighborhood touch football game. As they say at the Mayo Clinic, "find an activity you enjoy, and go for it." If it doesn't work for you, try something different tomorrow.

before next use of tobacco”.

Do cell phones adversely effect
critical medical equipment?
Ever notice all of those signs throughout hospitals, saying "No Cell Phones!" and wonder, huh? Do they affect the use of medical equipment and put patient lives in danger?
Well, a Mayo Clinic study released in March, 2007 answered this with a resounding NO!
Read a report of the study Hospital Equipment Unaffected by Cell Phone Use, where their results were that "Calls made on cellular phones have no negative impact on hospital medical devices, dispelling the long-held notion that they are unsafe to use in health care facilities, according to
Mayo Clinic researchers."
We are very happy to see these signs disappearing from more and more hospitals.

Himalayan Salt Lamps
Himalayan Salt Lamps are made of natural crystal salt mined from underground salt mines in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains. Himalayan crystal salt is hundreds of millions of years old and, as a result, has special properties and high mineral content. Heat from the bulbs in the lamps causes the salt to emit negative ions that bond with the pollutants in the air (positive ions) and neutralize them. These negative ions also combat electro-smog caused by electronic devices operating in the home. In effect, Himalayan Salt Lamps cleanse the air naturally, and they look fabulous as well!
Even though they are not a "medical device", Salt Crystal Lamps, by emitting negative ions and significantly reducing a myriad of indoor air pollutants, Himalayan Salt Lamps have known benefits which may provide relief from sinus migraine headaches, allergies and hay fever, they may reduce the severity of asthma attacks, enhance the immune system, increase alertness, increase work productivity and concentration, increase lung capacity, and reduce susceptibility to colds and flu.*
Himalayan Salt Lamps are natural, organic products and that each vary in shape and size, thus no two are exactly alike.

Himalayan Salt Lamps

Haven't Exercised in Awhile?
Tips on How to Start Up
You should begin with 20 minute sessions, 3 times per week. Slowly build up to 30 minutes 5 to 6 times per week. You can even start with several short exercise bouts in each of the first few days, such as on a lunch break, or while doing errands. Always start with a gradual warm-up, though, to stretch your muscles before increasing your activity level. A good example of this is start walking slowly, but then pick up the pace after a few minutes.
At the end, cool down for 5 or 10 minutes, and again do some stretching. Let your heart rate gradually slow down.
