Moving the Body to Ease the Mind

We exercise for a variety of reasons. Some want a healthier heart. Others work out as a way to build strength, endurance, and coordination. Still, others are motivated by image, and a desire to sculpt a fitter-looking figure. All of these pursuits have a physical goal. But for some people, exercise is more of a

Habits That Can Reduce Your Risk of Dementia

People make choices every day that affect whether or not they will develop dementia in the years to come—and how fast it progresses if it does show up. Dementia is a progressive disease that can eventually cause deterioration of brain function—such as your ability to form thoughts and recall memories. It can also dramatically alter

Natural Immunity Longer Lasting Than Protection From COVID-19 Vaccines: Dr. Robert Malone

Immunity conferred by recovering from COVID-19 is better than the protection afforded by COVID-19 vaccines, a prominent vaccine inventor says, citing in part a recent study from Israel. Israeli researchers found that people in the country vaccinated with Pfizer’s COVID-19 shot were 13 times more likely to contract the Delta variant of the CCP virus and 27

Can’t Understand Your Teen? You’re Not Alone.

“Mo-om,” my child cocks her head to one side to look at me. “Why are you being so emo?” The words string together so quickly they’re hard to follow: “Whyyabeingsoemo?” To be honest, I have no idea what my daughter’s accusing me of. My husband and I have four children. The oldest is 22 and

WHO Urges Countries To Hold Off Giving COVID-19 Booster Shots Through September

In contrast, some

The Incredible Potential of Daily Practice

I’ve been repeatedly reminded of the power of practicing something regularly. Daily is best, I’ve learned, but several times a week works well, too. You’d be surprised how much progress you can make with even a small amount of practice, applied regularly. Here are some examples from my life. A daily 10-minute yoga practice. I’m very inflexible, and
