Migraines are more than just a headache -- they are a global health issue. 30 million people are directly affected and migraines cost employers $13 billion every year in lost worker productivity. That's more than diabetes and asthma combined. For many sufferers, attacks are completely debilitating and can last as long as 72 hours.
Unfortunately, the Migraine Research Foundation estimates that the majority of migrainers never seek medical treatment. That may be because the medications involved can cause side-effects worse then...
You’ve been avoiding it, but desperately need it. You don’t have time for it, but somehow, it HAS to get done. Spring cleaning. It’s time.
Spring cleaning is one those traditions that defies common sense. It’s as if someone said: “Wow; it’s warm; the snow’s melted, flowers are blooming! Let’s spend this weekend inside and move my dusty CD’s down to the basement!”
Spring cleaning is the ultimate ode to the puritan work ethic of joyless tasks....
Love kills. Science confirms this is actually true.
It’s strange and ironic that February – the month of Valentine’s Day – is also Heart Health month. Intentions on Valentine’s Day are very positive: it’s our yearly reminder to reaffirm our commitment and appreciation for those we love. But in reality, Valentine’s can create serious emotional - even physical - complications. For one thing, expectation on the day is overwhelming – it’s the Christmas of relationships.
"Resolution" has got to be one of the most loaded words in the English language. It represents both hope AND falling short of expectations. Most resolutions cluster around improved health (38%) and self-improvement (47%). Yet, strangely the pledge we make at the beginning of the year to improve our happiness actually ends up making us more miserable. As it is, only 8% of resolutions are actually realized.

The result? Rita-line. Ritalin.
Adderall is amphetamine salts—like Ritalin, a stimulant. Doctors originally prescribed it for obesity, but quickly recognized its off-label calming effect, its focusing effect, on people diagnosed with ADHD.

Zengar Institute, Inc. today announced the results of a new peer-reviewed study measuring the effects of NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback on patients suffering post-cancer cognitive impairment (PCCI) or “chemo-brain”. The research, conducted by the Applied Brain Research Foundation of Ohio, reported a 91% success rate for PCCI patients using NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback’s brain training system. 21 of the 23 participants in the study reported a complete reversal of the cognitive impairment or “mental fog” commonly associated with chemotherapy treatments.
I learned a lot from my Russian roots. My genealogy is actually Scotch/Irish, but my Ph.D. work was in Russian Studies. Unlike Romance languages, Russian is a language "invented" by 19th century European linguists. The good news about that is Russian grammatical rules are logical - much like Latin. The bad news is, learning Russian is a lot like learning Latin.
Back to my roots: Russian is heavily based in word roots. In fact, finding the...
