Hi dear Parent,
I've been doing some extensive research on supplements. The
information I'm discovering points to the importance of getting
our nutrients from whole foods. Science is beginning to realize
that our bodies use whole foods better than vitamins, which are
bits and pieces and parts of whole food.
It's no accident, they tell us, that an apple, for example, is
filled with a hundred or more different vitamins and nutrients
(and, as yet, unidentifiable "good stuff") that are designed ...Read the rest of this entry »

What I consider rights of patients.
These I believe should be the right of all patients.
My article is about my proposal for the rights of all patients.
By this I mean both in and out patients. It includes physical
and mental conditions. By no means is the list below meant to be
exhaustive. It is merely a beginning. Perhaps you could think of
this as start of a dialogue. If you have any valid suggestions
feel free to add them in your comments. The two exceptions to
these rights would be ...Read the rest of this entry »

Supporting individuals who are both developmentally delayed as
well as diagnosed with a mental illness is, at best, a
challenging proposition. However, as more & more individuals
with developmental disabilities are successfully supported in
their home communities it is this portion of the population,
which is struggling. Frequently, it is the combination of
challenges that keeps them from being adequately served by
either support system as they are shuttled back & forth in
search of a "more ...Read the rest of this entry »

Winning My Battle With Anxiety
I was very outgoing as a child. I'd put on plays in front of my
parents, sing to records and put on shows. I was like that all
through both elementary school and high school. Nothing scared
me and my aspirations were high.
I began college as a Theater major and switched midstream to a
Communications major. I pictured myself as the next big 'News
Anchor'. I'd even auditioned at the Connecticut School of
Broadcasting, impromptu, and got accepted.
At the age of ...Read the rest of this entry »

On the eve of my baby's due date, I am unable to sleep. With baby moving in my belly, Braxton Hicks contractions spontaneously occurring (that often render me helpless, like a beetle on it's back waving its legs), and the enormous pressure in my pelvis that whisks me off to the toilet only to expel an unimpressive thimble full of pee every 15 minutes...I reflect upon the following 10 best parenting advice and pregnancy resources I received.
Pregnancy Tip 1:

Undoubtedly, one of the most common questions women will ask after delivering a baby is, "What's the best way to lose my pregnancy weight fast?". The problem is, that losing weight, not just pregnancy weight, too fast is not the safest nor best method for the long term. Remember, it took at least six months to put that weight on. To expect to shed it in a week and a half is unrealistic. That said, there is no reason it has to take six months to get rid of either. With a good plan of diet and ...Read the rest of this entry »

As with any health decisions you make during this time of your life, you will want to consult your doctor before you start any exercising during your pregnancy. If, however you and your doctor decide that an exercise program would be right for you, then from my personal experience I would highly recommend you proceed with one. Not only is it a good idea for you, but, if done correctly, it's beneficial to your baby as well. Studies have shown that women who stick to an exercise program during ...Read the rest of this entry »
