FEATURED HERBAL TIP
***********************

PUFFY EYES

Swelling around the eyes can be caused by low thyroid, also by allergies and
fatigue.

A simple treatment for puffy eyes is the use of tea bags. Wet a regular
black tea bag and apply to the eyes for 10-15 minutes. The tannins in the
tea are astringent and will help to relieve the swelling.

Another option is to use chamomile tea bags cooled over eyes or cucumber
slices.

NATURAL BIRTH CONTROL

Couples worldwide are choosing natural family planning for its healthful and
marriage building qualities, as well as its usefulness to plan or postpone
pregnancy. A prime concern to many is the use of a moral method to plan a
family.

The Sympto-Thermal Method taught by The Couple to Couple League (CCL)
utilizes all the fertility signs achieving a 99% effectiveness level for a
well-instructed and well-motivated couple. 

Classes are taught by professionally trained, volunteer couples who teach
local classes. You can also learn through their acclaimed Home Study
Course.

In addition, CCL includes instruction on Natural Mothering and Breastfeeding
for its health benefits for mother and child as well as its child-spacing
effects. Visit their site now for more information:

Editor's Note: We've been friends with a couple who have been using this
method for a pretty long time and have found it absolutely renewed their
marriage and has seen it do the same for others.

PARENT'S TIP - A CRACKING QUESTION

My son always cracks his knuckles. Can it affect him later in life?

The medical literature isn't completely clear on this point. The answer may
depend on the frequency (and perhaps the force) of the knuckle cracking.
Although knuckle cracking generally isn't shown to cause arthritis, as some
people have thought, habitual knuckle cracking may result in some functional
hand impairment later in life. Still, the habit seems to annoy many people -
and that might be reason enough for your son to try to give it up.

OMEGA-3: HEART, ARTHRITIS, DIABETES, DEPRESSION, ADD, & MORE

They occur naturally in fish, flaxseed, canola oil, nuts and avocados.
Omega-3 fatty acids are already prized by cardiologists for protecting the
heart against the inflammation that can lead to blocked arteries and for
thwarting an irregular, often fatal, heartbeat. There's growing evidence
that these polyunsaturated fats may also be helpful in preventing
complications of diabetes and in soothing the inflamed joints of arthritis.

Now psychiatrists are also taking a closer look. Omega-3s, dubbed the
"happy" fats in some quarters, are under investigation for treating
depression, bipolar disease, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder,
alcoholism, Alzheimer's disease and even the so-called baby blues, or
postpartum depression.

DOCTORS ARE THE THIRD LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH IN THE US
Causing 250,000 Deaths Every Year

This article in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) is
the best article I have ever seen written in the published literature
documenting the tragedy of the traditional medical paradigm. The author is
Dr. Barbara Starfield of the Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public
Health and she describes how the US health care system may contribute to poor
health.
