I enjoy finding and sharing new information about medical issues that may be present for my clients.  I appreciate that this physical therapist was able to question the traditional treatment approach she had been using and move forward with something less known but more effective.  Click here to read the article.

Saturated Fat – New Perspective

This summary article speaks of the newer research about the effects of dietary fat on health.  It states that “….scientists found no evidence that eating saturated fat increased heart attacks and other cardiac events”.  It also stated that, “The researchers did find a link between trans fate, the now widely maligned partially hydrogenated oils that had long been added to processed foods”.

My conclusion is that it is time to rethink our fat consumption.

Fact Checking

Stress comes in many forms.  I notice that not knowing what is true or false adds to stress.  There is a lot of cultural hysteria created to influence us to buy products, vote a certain way, etc.  Having ways to verify facts is one strategy for decreasing stress.  This article, wont-get-fooled-again1 in the Nov. 2012 Costco Magazine discloses numerous resources for “fact checking” options.

Food Cravings

This article succinctly describes the latest research findings about food cravings and the brain.  It also references research that “cognitive diffusion” – accepting and observing  thoughts without acting on them, is a particularly useful strategy to limit cravings.
