Health Freedom

 

Most people would agree that there are 3 key elements of health freedom

While it would be easy to debate which of these keys is the most important, it is also easy to see that access is the most critical. If you are looking for breast thermographer, especially for the first time, but the closest one you can find is in another state, it will cost more to get there and take more time. How do you find one that is close to where you live or work?

Google and other search engines make it easier to find most things. Still, search engine optimization (SEO) means that your local health care providers may not come up in a search, even if they are near to you and offer what you want.

Today’s society seems to be on a go-go-go schedule. It’s easy for people to choose the fast and easy option by stopping at the local drugstore. How do you find holistic and natural products, services and solutions?

Heartbreak, Healing & Hope

MEME heartbreakhh

New Research: Parkinson's Disease & Laughter Yoga

Shelley BellAccording to a new study published in EXPLORE May/June 2016, Vol. 12, No. 3, by Debra Swedberg DeCaro, MSW, and Jodi L. Constantine Brown, PhD, MSW, "laughter improves physical and psychological health-related outcomes across diseases and populations. Research related to psychological outcomes is prevalent with studies showing that laughter helps with stress, mood, memory,  interpersonal relationships, psychologiccal well-being, and quality of life."

 By stimulating the amygdala, laughter may be helpful for adults with Parkinson's Disease (PD) because deficits involving  functions regulated by the amygdala have been implicated in PD symptoms. Laughter can create an increase in dopamine  production, and thus an increase in positive mood in adults with PD, as evidenced by anecdotal accounts and new research.  Laughter Yoga (LY) may be a viable intervention for adults because of these connections which impact "stress, mood, memory, interpersonal relationships, psychological well-being, and quality of life." 

While the most common current PD treatments involve psychotherapy and pharmacology, some of the side effects associated with pharmacological treatment have stimulated a call for "alternative treatment approaches."
