Primal Power Method Coping with the menopause

For women menopause is a life-changing event. It’s important to understand exactly what it is, how it occurs, and how this time of life is impacted by nutrition and exercise.

What is Menopause?

Menopause usually occurs between the ages of 45 and 55. It is characterized by an absence of menstrual cycles for twelve consecutive months, during which time a woman is considered to be in menopause. During this transition, a woman’s ovaries stop producing the hormone estrogen. This is significant because prior to menopause, 90 percent of a woman’s total estrogen is produced by the ovaries. Estrogen is crucial for maintaining physical and mental balance.

Below is an article on Turmeric/Curcumin that I think is educational for all of you interested in more information about this herb.turmeric

(Newhope360) Powdered turmeric has been used for centuries to treat osteoarthritis and other illnesses. Its active ingredient, curcumin, inhibits inflammatory reactions. A new study now shows that it can also inhibit formation of metastases.

Prostate cancer is one of the most prevalent malignancies in the Western world, and is often diagnosed only after metastatic tumors have formed in other organs. In three percent of cases, these metastases are lethal. A research team led by PD Dr. Beatrice Bachmeier at LMU Munich has been studying the mode of action of a natural product that inhibits the formation of metastases. The compound is found in turmeric, a plant that has been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years, and is a major ingredient of curry.

The Natural Approach: Getting Acquainted With Holistic Medicine

As I have aged (and hopefully gotten wiser) I have been gravitating towards a more holistic approach toward living. I try to use moreholistic medicine natural remedies to deal with my ailments as they arise. I must say, however, that by eating a healthier diet I do notice that these ailments occur less frequently than they used to in the past. I have found that in the face of continued increases in the cost of conventional medicine self care coupled with a holistic approach are becoming more popular and more accepted every day. In this essay I would like to describe  holistic medicine as it most definitely fits into a more natural lifestyle and the The Simple Life Health paradigm.

Holistic medicine in various forms has been the ancestral approach to health care for millennia with its roots mainly found in the great ancient medical traditions of China and India.  Unfortunately for us in North America, we have ventured away from the holistic healing approach, as science and technology have become the

Getting The Point: The Benefits Of Acupuncture

Acupuncture is one of the oldest healing practices in the world, dating back at least 3,000 years as one of the central modalities of acupuncturetraditional Chinese medicine.  In comparison, modern or Western medicine has been practiced for only about 200 years.

Acupuncture was first recorded in the  Huangdi Neijing (Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine), considered to be the oldest Chinese medical textbook, which most scholars believe was compiled between the third and first centuries BCE.  Traditional Chinese medicine, which encompasses many different practices, is rooted in the ancient philosophy of Taoism whose origins may be traced more than 5,000 years in the past. As part of traditional Chinese medicine, the main goal of acupuncture is to restore and maintain health through the stimulation of specific points on the body. Simply put, acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine needles on the body’s surface in order to influence physiological functioning of the body.  The most common practice of acupuncture is for the relief or treatment of moderate to severe pain, which can originate from various points in the body.

The Holistic Approach: Doctor’s Of Osteopathic Medicine

Most people have heard of or seen the initials D.O., but most do not know what they mean or understand the difference between a Holistic MedicineD.O. (Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine) and M.D. (Medical Doctor).  Both are fully qualified doctors licensed to prescribe medication and perform surgery, both complete four years of medical education, both obtain medical education through internships, residencies, and fellowships, and both can practice in any specialty of medicine.

The biggest difference between a D.O. and an M.D. lies in their perception of the human organism and its health or lack thereof.  An M.D. has been trained to treat you for a specific symptom or illness, and views symptoms in disparate parts of the body as separate, largely unrelated disease states.  The D.O., on the other hand, is trained to view your body as an integrated whole as it relates to your health and wellbeing.  D.O.’s receive an additional 300-500 hours of training in the musculoskeletal system, which is the body’s interconnected system of muscles, bones, and nerves that makes up two thirds of your body mass.  This gives the D.O. knowledge and training to better understand how one part of your body can affect many other parts, thus finding the cause of illness, rather than merely treating the symptom or specific illness.  A good example of this would be the case of the narrowing of your nerve pathway in your lower back affecting your hips, knees, ankles, and even causing pain in your toes.  Most medical doctors would focus on the leg pain as a discrete event and likely prescribe painkillers and anti-inflammatories. A D.O. would focus on what is causing the leg pain.
