Next time you consider your calcium needs, think beyond one type. You need four.

Curb Your Stress

NOT EVERY PERCEIVED THREAT IS REAL. FIND OUT HOW TO GAIN CONTROL OVER THE THINGS THAT NEEDLESSLY STRESS YOU OUT.

We have a stress epidemic in our nation.

The majority of Americans very likely have excessive stress in their lives, and reports of stress seem to indicate that the percentage of Americans each year who feel under "a great deal of stress" is rising.

Let Go of The Guilt

GOD IS BIG ENOUGH TO COVER YOUR MISTAKES, JUST AS HE DID FOR RAHAB THE HARLOT.

One of the most difficult things for people to do is overcome the past. Mental health providers, social service persons, psychiatric practitioners and even the religious community will all attest to the fact that "issues" from the past continue to reverberate and ricochet into the present of most people's lives, causing a whole range of consequences from toxic relationships to emotional handicaps to even physical illnesses.

The concept isn't new. We have long recognized that "the child is father of the man" and "what is past is prologue" in our lives. Helping people find a way to cast off the baggage of the past is one of the most difficult tasks in ministry.

Mind Over Matter

One way to avoid putting on weight, according to fitness trainer Dino Nowak, is to stop eating mindlessly, particularly while engaging in other activities such as watching TV. In his book The Final Makeover (Siloam), Nowak suggests that if you eat in front of a TV or computer screen you do not pay attention to how much you are consuming and can easily exceed a healthful amount. If the snack you choose is not good for you (potato chips, cookies, ice cream), the negative effects of the indulgence are that much worse. So from now on, use your head when you go to the pantry: Select a nutritional food, put only one serving on a plate or into a bowl, and eat it purposefully--to satisfy hunger--rather than out of mere habit or a need to keep your hands busy during a sedentary activity.

Certain antioxidants protect sensitive eye tissue from harmful sunlight.

The Diabetes Epidemic

The disease's explosive growth has public-health experts concerned.

Choose Your Attitude

IF WE WILL FOCUS ON GOD, HIS TRUTH WILL STRIP AWAY THE SPIRITUAL DYNAMICS THAT CONTRIBUTE TO DEPRESSION AND BEGIN THE HEALING PROCESS

 
God has a potent, supernatural prescription for depression--His Word! Hebrews 4:12 says, "The word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart" (NKJV). The Word will not only diagnose our condition, it will also prescribe a potent treatment program that drives depression out of our lives and sets us free! God's Word is the ultimate antidepressant.

God's plan for dealing with depression is very different from the world's plan. The world wants us to reopen our wounds and recall every injustice from the past. The Word tells us to focus on the Healer.

How 'bout Them Apples

You've probably never thought of apples as a significant part of a weight-loss regimen, but apples are a great source of fiber, and fiber not only improves digestion but also encourages weight loss. A medium-sized apple contains about five grams of fiber, more than most commercially made cereals--even the health food store variety. They also have almost no fat or cholesterol, so they are a healthy choice for a snack or dessert.

Midlife Should Not Be a Pain

YOU CAN'T AGE GRACEFULLY WHEN ACHES AND PAINS HAVE TAKEN OVER YOUR LIFE. HERE'S HOW TO KEEP THAT FROM HAPPENING.


As baby boomers enter middle age and beyond, many of them struggle with mild to intense physical agony caused by bone degeneration. Whether this degeneration is due to swelling of the tissues that line the joints, muscle strain, or fatigue, the joints, muscles, bones, and tendons break down too soon for one out of every four American midlifers.

The joint problems they experience can initiate changes in both body and mind that ultimately affect the spirit. Joint problems cause mental stress as well, which increases the release of adrenaline. Ultimately, excess adrenaline leads to exhaustion.

Shed Those Pounds

Being obese increases the risk of developing heart disease or cancer.

You Can Say No To Diabetes

EVEN IF YOU'RE GENETICALLY PREDISPOSED TO THIS DISEASE, THERE ARE THINGS YOU CAN DO TO PREVENT IT FROM DEVELOPING.

When the prophet Hosea declared on God's behalf, "My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge" (Hos. 4:6, NIV), he was indicting the priests for their failure to teach the people the Word of God. However, this principle is applicable to other aspects of our lives as well, including our health.

Ignorance in health matters, combined with the failure to implement knowledge once it is acquired, places many people on a certain path to destruction. Among them are the large and ever-growing number of Americans affected by diabetes.

Metal in Your Mouth

The commonly used silver and amalgam dental fillings contain mercury--lots of it.

Help for When It Hurts

The presence of prolonged pain can change a person's outlook on life.

Where a Man Finds His Worth

I could bench nearly 400 pounds, but I couldn't lift the weight of low self-esteem off my back ... until I discovered that only what God says about me really matters.

 

How would you respond if someone asked you that question? You might answer with your name, but that's just what people call you.

Come on, who are you? You might tell me your profession, but that's just what you do, not who you are. Finally frustrated, you might start saying you're kind, funny and generous--but those are just personality characteristics. Who are you? Do you really know?

Know The Fitness Basics

NOW IS THE TIME TO TURN YOUR HEALTH ASPIRATIONS INTO REALIZED GOALS. BUT BEFORE YOU GET STARTED, MAKE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND THE FUNDAMENTALS WHEN IT COMES TO GETTING FIT.

Many people think that as long as they work on their spiritual relationship they are caring for God's temple. But our physical bodies, our emotions and our minds must be in good shape, too.

Besides owing it to ourselves to strive toward a healthier life, we owe it to God. Having good health will ensure that our time on Earth is more enjoyable and effective for Him.
