For many years health challenge treatments were focused on medications only. But there is a sweeping change upon us as medical science begins to understand the power of our own system to aid our wellness, and the harmful side-effects of many medications.
Treatments in many health issues today aren’t just about prescription drugs but includes therapies that tap into our body’s own ability to fight “invasions” using the power of our own mind. In most instances this isn’t instead of, but in addition to, prescribed medication. But where prescription drugs have not, or cannot, help, then other therapies are sought.
Treatments today need to provide long-term solutions and not just address symptoms, and the selection of materials you’ll find here cover insights into hypnosis, mental illness, cognitive behavioral therapy, stress and anxiety, and much more.
Enjoy the articles.

I’m sure that doesn’t sound too reassuring, but understanding why you’ve a fear of heights and how you can deal with it better, may help! Here’s more…Read More

As the population of “X” and “Y” generations start to get older, more and more people today are single, perhaps more than ever before. Divorce rates have never been higher than over the last ten to fifteen years, and more individuals are choosing to remain single after divorce, or not even getting married in the first place. This has many thinking and fearing growing old alone. This mindset is literally a major concern for people who worry they’ll be alone for the rest of their life, with no one to turn to when they’re much older and when they’ll need support and help the most. If you’re still young enough and in the work force or have a career, this may cushion the blow for now. But what happens when you retire and get older? Read more…Read More

I suffer from tinnitus and while its not as extreme as some sufferers nonetheless its always present and I can sympathize with anybody who endures over the many forms of noise and sound sensitivity. This article will explore different classifications of sensitivity and treatments available. I consider myself a practical person and while the medical research fascinates me, many times clinical description leads to a lack of understanding and clarification about what to do next for a lay person.

The term and illness ‘Chronic Fatigue Syndrome’ is commonly discussed when it comes to people experiencing persistent lethargy. Not too long ago there was much discussion on whether or not it was an actual disorder, or more of a somatoform disorder, or even something individuals feign – psychosomatic if you will. The question then is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) a real disorder? CFS is also known as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) and is now the preferred term in the medical profession. The fact is it’s an accepted disease these days as medical science understands there is a group of illnesses that attacks our body systems causing fatigue but without being able to identify the cause or see it running around under a microscope. But for those experiencing ME its real and can make one’s life miserable. But there are options. Read more here…Read More
Many people have experienced a not so great childhood, some of those an even downright horrible one. This trouble they experienced in their childhood may have persisted and prevented them from evolving into happy, positive young adults, and they’ve ended-up carrying this burden into their adult lives. The fact is, if you’ve experienced much hurt, abuse or even abandonment, this can create major issues for you until you work on getting them resolved. These issues can lead to insecurities, trust issues, resentment, and even anger or depression. This is what many people accept as their realities and just go on living as a continuation of childhood. But it doesn’t have to stay this way, and should not. You’re not the same person you were as a child. Read more…Read More
Have you ever walked in your sleep, or do you live with or know someone who walks in their sleep? In the movies and television sleep walking is often poked at in a fun and quirky light. It’s even conveyed in horror or mystery movies as a dark and unnatural act being induced by something sinister or controlling. In reality however, sleep walking is serious business and not tied to anything evil or theatrical! Since an individual who is sleep walking is for all intents and purposes ‘asleep’, they don’t know what they’re doing. Add to the fact they’re walking around in the dark with their eyes closed or seemingly open but unaware of surroundings, and this can be a recipe for disaster! It’s easy to get injured, even severely hurt if you continue to sleep walk. Think about how accidents can happen when your eyes are open and you’re wide awake and alert? Well, sleep walking can compound injuries. Discover more here…Read More
It seems like now more than ever before, more kids are being diagnosed or labeled with having mental health disorders such as depression and anxiety. It also appears that generalized anxiety disorder is truly becoming more prevalent in younger kids and teenagers. What’s up with all this? Are more kids being born with brain and neurological deficiencies or abnormalities which is leading them to becoming ‘anxious’, or is it more of a sociological phenomenon which is leading to psychological problems? Or is it as some would suggest a change in our diets to include more processed foods? The argument being previous generations didn’t see this volume of issues in their kids and what has changed is our tendency in jam-packed lives to have more meals with more processed foods.

If you’ve ever watched the gut wrenching rejection of a young animal by its Mother or from its pack or herd because you know it chances of survival are slim, then you know the loneliness the animal must feel. While this is the stark reality of the animal kingdom to ensure survival of the fittest nonetheless when it comes to humans our expectation is that no child or kid is excluded. After all, it’s what separates us from the majority of the animal world, and is inherent in our desire to take care of each other. And for the most part we do. But we are vulnerable growing-up and frankly kids and teenagers can behave badly towards each other, especially when it comes to social interactions and acceptance. Read more…Read More
