Tia Today: Sugar, dancing and forgiveness

September 25, 2008 in Living by Tia Nielsen

Day 10 of the new habits for life is upon me. To my surprise, I can move with more ease and have much less back and ankle pain. Now, this doesn’t mean I’m dancin’ in the steets yet. That much coordination may take a while. (Do grandmothers dance in the streets?)

September 25, 2008 in Living by Wendell Fowler

Hippocrates, the father of medicine, was right-on when in 400 BC he declared: “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”

After my loyal 15-year-old yellow lab died, I deeply grieved and became emotionally intoxicated on an unfamiliar level. We spent nearly every day of her life together; even vacations centered on the beloved family member. Just recently, however, I discovered that I was being overly medicated by my family physician. Psychotherapeutic drugs, like antidepressants and sedatives, have nearly doubled from 671 deaths to 1,300. Adios to drugs that took me out of the game and hello to food as medicine.
