If You're Taking This - Avoid That!

If you're taking medicine for diabetes, medical experts warn that you should avoid cinnamon in large doses. Both can lower your blood sugar. Taken together, they may lower it to dangerous levels. A sprnkling of cinnamon might be okay, but avoid cinnamon in high dose supplements.

Why Your Spouse Could be a Pain in the Neck – Literally!

New research shows that fighting with your husband, wife, or significant other can have an effect on your health.

People who rage with anger are likely to develop problems like high blood pressure and chest pains. Those who stuff their anger and stew silently are more likely to develop muscular pains, particularly in the neck or back.

Researchers stress the need for better communication between spouses/partners and, if necessary, the use of a professional counselor or therapist to help.

Write Your Way to a Good Night's Sleep

Having trouble falling asleep because something is bothering you?

A recent study shows that if you write down what’s bothering you AND how can solve that problem just before going to bed, you increase your chances of falling asleep faster!

Running? What’s Your Hurry?

If you’re jogging for the health benefits, you may want to slow down just a bit.

According to a recent study, walking at a brisk pace provides just as much benefit as running when it comes to lowering blood pressure and cholesterol!

Heading for a Fall?

There is a right way and a wrong way to fall. As we get older, falls that result in broken bones, concussions or other injuries can be more serious.

The people who fall for a living – Hollywood’s stunt men and women, have some tips should you find yourself losing your balance:

  • Protect Your Head – If you’re falling backward, tuck your chin into your chest. If you’re falling forward, turn your face to the side.
  • Land Where the Bones Aren’t – Try to position yourself so you fall on muscle, not bone. The best place to absorb a fall is on your butt. Second best would be your back or thighs.
  • Stay Bent – Our natural instinct when we fall is to panic and stiffen up. This is the wrong move. Try to stay loose with your arms and legs bent. Do not try and stop your fall with an outstretched hand. That’s a good way to break your wrist.
  • Keep Falling – Don’t try and stop suddenly. The more you can roll and spread the stress out to a larger area of the body, the better your chances of minimizing injuries.s
