1) A POWERFUL POTION FOR WEIGHT LOSS AND HEALTH

What if someone offered you a tonic that could help you lose weight, improve your digestion, cushion your joints, keep your skin from drying out, etc.

This tonic is readily available, safe, free and itís flowing into your kitchen.

It is water we are talking about.

This natural fountain of youth has zero calories. If you want to loose weight, simply substitute the high-calorie beverages you are drinking with water.

But drinking water before meals will not reduce hunger. Eating a bowl of soup may work better than a glass of water. Researchers found , that eating chicken and rice soup curbed the appetite better.

Researchers also say, that the amount of food, not the number of calories it contains, that gives you a feeling of being full.

High water content foods satisfy the appetite just as much as the more calorie-dense ones. For instance, a large bowl of pasta salad with carrots and zucchini fills you up better than a smaller portion of pasta without the veggies, but with equal number of calories.

Furthermore, in order to fill up without adding too much calories, add fruits to your salad; tomato, lettuce, and sprouts to your turkey breast sandwich, extra vegetables in chilli, etc. And do not stop drinking water. It does far more than help you lose weight. If you are as the majority of people, you do not drink enough of it.

2) PRINCE CHARLES JOINS ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE ROW
MachesterEvening News, May 24 2006

PRINCE Charles has strongly defended the use of complementary medicine during a speech to the World Health Assembly in Geneva.

He praised ancient treatments like acupuncture and challenged each country to be more open-minded by adopting an "holistic" approach to medicine that also dealt with factors like housing, the environment and agriculture.

His comments were made as a group of British scientists urged NHS trusts to reject complementary medicine and use funds for treatments that are "based on solid evidence".

Charles told the delegates: "The proper mix of proven complementary, traditional and modern remedies, which emphasise the active participation of the patient can help to create a powerful healing force for our world."

He defended the use of complementary therapies and said research in Britain had shown 55 per cent of GPs were referring their patients to complementary practitioners.

"For the past 24 years I have argued that patients should be able to gain the benefit of the `best of both worlds' - complementary and orthodox as part of an integrated approach to healing.

"Many of today's complementary therapies are rooted in ancient traditions that intuitively understand the need to maintain balance and harmony with our minds, bodies and the natural world. Orthodox medicine has so much to learn from it."

TREATMENTS

The group of scientists, organised by Michael Baum, emeritus professor of surgery at University College London, said the funding of "unproven" treatments was unacceptable at a time when health trusts are struggling to balance their budgets.

But Charles said international studies had provided "increasingly robust evidence" that treatment such as acupuncture work, particularly for osteoarthritis.

"It can, according to evidence, also alleviate the nausea and vomiting that can be so debilitating for those taking anti-cancer drugs," he said.

"In the case of herbal applications such as St John's Wort (Hypericum perforatum), which has been used since the time of the ancient Greeks, about 30 clinical trials have shown some positive effects in treating non-severe depression with a remarkably low incidence of side-effects.

"In our battle against the complex problems of chronic disease, we need to rediscover and reintegrate some of the knowledge and well-tried practices that have been accumulated over 1,000 years."


3) ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE POPULAR AMONG OLDER ADULTS

Studies have found that more than 70 percent of adults over 50 years of age use some type alternative therapy for treating illness and disease and maintaining good health. The study involved interviewing 848 adults age 50 and older to find out what, if any, alternative therapies were used.

Dr. Gong-Soog Hong and her team of researchers from Ohio State University in Columbus, found that "71 percent [of the study participants] had tried at least one of six types of alternative therapy. The most popular remedy was chiropractic medicine, used by 43 percent of older adults, [and] the least popular remedy was acupuncture." Hong indicated that older adults may not choose acupuncture because it is rarely covered by medical insurance companies.
