As scientific discoveries inch closer and closer to the one undisputable truth… that our Universe is not a random “accident” and that there is indeed an intelligence behind it, exciting evidence is being presented by some of the world’s top scientists. One of these scientists, Dr. Bernard Haisch, has recently written a book called The God Theory: Universes, Zero-point Fields, and What’s Behind It All, which has received critical acclaim and quickly reached best-seller status. Dr. Haish, a noted astro-physicist who has worked on top NASA programs and with governments around the world, presents his theory, based on his scientific research into Zero Point Fields and other cutting-edge quantum mechanics.

  • The best reading light is ambient natural light. But if you’re using artificial light, choose low-intensity, full-spectrum light. A 60-or 75-watt bulb is best. Avoid fluorescent lighting, which causes red blood cells to stick together and decreases oxygen flow to the eyes. The light should come from behind you and not shine directly in your eyes.

    Years ago, Norman Vincent Peale wrote the book The Power of Positive Thinking in it he revealed his revolutionary theory that our thoughts can influence the events of our lives. At that time, the scientific community scoffed at the notion that our thoughts and our reality are intertwined. Now there is scientific evidence that Dr. Peale's theory was accurate. Scientists today know that when our attitude is positive, our bodies release chemicals that make us feel good, and they believe, protect us from illness. Having a good attitude is something you can control.

    From the very first life on this planet there has always been a pattern of development based upon community. Although we think individually, we need others to encourage us, guide us, and most importantly understand us. When one observes modern life there is a gaping hole in the center of this necessary pattern. More isolated than ever, sitting in front of our televisions and computers we are rapidly reducing our contact with others. Not only does this cause a dramatic sense of loss, it also reduces our abilities to communicate with others. Ripple effects begin through this estrangement and, at times, can become chronic to such a point that one may become antisocial and anti-others.

    Hippocrates stands for and teaches clean living in all areas of life, and that includes a wonderful and mysterious commodity: telling the truth. Which, being so basic, ought to be easy, but isn’t. It takes attentiveness and courage to be honest, and maybe even more difficult, it takes innocence.

    In our quest for heroes, there is none held in higher esteem than our sports figures. Throughout the world football players, baseball players, etc. are our children’s mentors. As grown adults trying to maintain our youth and energy, we become dedicated fans and admire the current economic advantage of being a sports star. In our local junior and minor leagues, many parents use their children as cures for their lack of ability and absence of success as children. As we recently observed, this often comes to blows and can even result in death.

    In recent years, the focus of anatomical studies have been upward at the organ we call the brain. What is most surprising is that in the past, we have so misunderstood its Function and purpose. Now regularly. With deeper and more relevant research, we are discovering phenomenal Facts about this harbor of consciousness. With 81/2 times more cells packed into this little powerhouse than the rest of our body, we must ask how much this dynamo really can do! We know from hundreds of thousands of magnetic resonance imagery (MRI) that the average person uses less than 4 percent of his or her brain. It is no wonder that we are still struggling and potentially creating an end to our own species. We cannot allow this power to create exceptional reality - this fallow 96 percent of potential - to go to waste. We must now honor, respect and develop the mind that resides in this anatomical genius.

    Let’s set things straight: osteoporosis is man-made. It is an entirely preventable and treatable disease. The United States has one of the highest osteoporosis rates in the world, killing more women every year than cancer of the breast, cervix and uterus combined. Twenty-five million Americans have been diagnosed with osteoporosis and it an estimated nine out of ten Americans have sub-optimal bone densities. Even young, professional athletes have their careers cut short by osteoporosis. It need not be this way!

    Healthy relationships are not my forté. I am the only child of a woman who can politely be called strong-willed. I learned early to live in the spaces other people didn’t occupy, in the hours they didn’t commandeer. None of my romantic episodes have been stellar either, unless you are drawing parallels to the birth or death of a star, which I understand, is rather explosive. In fact, the longest voluntary relationship I have ever had is with my cat, Finster…hmmmm.

    The alcohol debate is a sensitive topic for many. Some people claim that drinking a few alcoholic beverages a day might be beneficial to one’s health, possibly even reducing the risks of coronary heart disease. Others claim that consuming moderate amounts of alcohol might help lower cholesterol and increase longevity. Many people try to justify their habit of alcohol by drinking organic beers and wines, believing that consuming unprocessed alcoholic beverages and unfiltered beer decreases the negative health effects. The deluge of targeted research on the benefits of alcohol is unconscionable and should not be taken seriously by any thinking person. Alcohol is a poisonous substance and the most lethal drug consumed today.
