National Eating Disorders Awareness Week (Feb. 21-27)
This week is National Eating Disorders Awareness Week.  Why focus the focus on eating disorders? According to the National Association of Anorexia and Related Disorders (ANAD),  over one-half of teenage girls and nearly one-third of teenage boys use unhealthy weight control behaviors such as skipping meals, fasting, smoking cigarettes, vomiting, and taking laxatives.  ANAD also reports that eating disorders are the number one fatal mental health disorder. Mortality rates can vary and part of the reason why is that the causes of reported deaths are often listed for complications (organ failure, malnutrit...

Solving the Puzzle of Your ADD/ADHD Child: Natural Alternatives for Hard-to-Raise Children
Raising any child can feel like a puzzle. However, when your child has ADD or ADHD, that puzzle can seem to have a few missing pieces. This was the case for Laura J. Stevens with her first son, Tommy. As she describes in Solving the Puzzle of Your ADD/ADHD Child: Natural Alternatives for Hard-to-Raise Children, when Tommy was four, a pediatric neurologist concluded that he was hyperactive and “would probably experience sever learning problems in school and always require special education classes.” Something about that conclusion didn’t sit well with Stevens, who has a master’s degree in n...

Mental health conditions, such as depression and binge eating disorder, may be twice as common among bariatric surgery patients compared to the general U.S. population, with nearly 25 percent suffering from a mood disorder and nearly 20 percent being diagnosed with a binge eating disorder prior to the procedure, a UCLA-led study suggests.

Borderline Personality Disorder
Borderline personality disorder is a personality disorder that is characterized by a recurring, long-standing pattern of having unstable relationships with others — romantic, friendships and with family members. It’s marked by impulsivity in decision-making. People with borderline personality disorder often swing from one emotion to another easily and quickly, and their self-image changes just as often. If there’s an overarching defining characteristic of someone who suffers from borderline personality disorder, it’s that they often seem like they are ping-ponging back and forth between everything ...

Motivation and willpower generally go hand in hand. Whether you are working on a project at work or prioritizing your fitness goals, willpower plays a major role in terms of achieving success.

Book Review: Body of Truth
My friend’s husband once said I’d be a great catch if I would just “lose a little more weight.” I was surprised by his comment, particularly since he carries around a spare tire and since I am healthy (and happy) in size.

For the longest, I didn't see the light. I only saw the dark, the shadows. I was lost in the forest. I struggled with chronic headaches, depression, self-hate, chronic muscle pains, eating disorders, trauma from being abused growing up, and so on. I desperately wanted to heal. I just wanted to be happy, healthy and free. I wanted happiness, health and freedom so badly that I forgot to think about what these words meant. I imagined happiness, health and freedom as a destination, where I arrive and I will have nothing else to do, but to soak on the sun and hang my feet by the ocean.

When you push away your plate, loosen your belt and announce, "I couldn't manage another bite!" it may be your gut microbes talking, according to a new study.
