Health Risks and Prevention

Unresolved Emotional Issues Are Dangerous to Our Health

skip

Research done at the University of London and the work of Dr. Hans Eysneck, suggest that unresolved emotional issues are six times more predictive of coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer and diabetes than is a poor diet or lack of exercise.

But I believe humanistic therapy programs are at best unhelpful, and at worst very damaging. Even 12-step programs, I believe, do not achieve the complete healing people seek.

Are you sure you want to keep living with the kinds of emotional pain that are unnecessary and avoidable, and risk getting a fatal disease?

Instead, why not attend or buy one of the recovery programs by internationally respected counselors Drs. Ron and Nancy Rockey called ''Binding the Wounds'' or ''The Journey,'' which is based on the latest neurological and developmental research? You have nothing to lose! If you want true and complete healing, I strongly encourage you to take a minute to learn more. If you're teachable, you're fixable!


Poor Dental Health Is Also Dangerous to Our Health

What Your Dentist Knows About Your Health

''From predicting heart disease, diabetes, and premature birth to revealing leukemia, eating disorders, and vitamin deficiencies, your teeth and gums say a mouthful about your health.''

''The eyes may be the window to your soul, but for a look into your physical health, open wide: Your teeth and gums say a mouthful.''

''Receding or inflamed gums, cavities, tooth loss, gingivitis, and other dental dilemmas in adults can indicate the presence of serious health problems - including heart disease, diabetes, cancer, vitamin deficiencies, and even the risk of having a premature or low-birth-weight baby.''

''These dental problems can result from poor dental hygiene such as not brushing well or not flossing regularly. But even by following your dentist's golden rule, you may still be hurting your overall health.''

'' 'Every time you brush your teeth, especially if there's any inflammation in the mouth, it puts some bacteria into your bloodstream,' says Honolulu periodontist Michael P. Rethman, DDS, president of the American Academy of Periodontology. 'This isn't good, but it is normal.' ''

''That may explain a recent jaw-dropping study in the journal Circulation that links any of five common dental problems with an increased risk of heart disease.''

''The kicker: Dental problems proved to be stronger predictors of heart disease than more traditionally used risk factors such as low 'good' cholesterol, high triglycerides, or high levels a clotting factor called fibrinogen.''

''And it doesn't end there.'' - WebMD Article by Sid Kirchheimer, Reviewed by Brunilda Nazario, MD

Read the rest of the article.

So have a dentist check for gum disease as soon as possible and if you have it, make sure you get it treated right away, if possible. Otherwise, brush and floss properly and as often as recommended, and get your teeth and gums checked and your teeth cleaned regularly.

''Many diseases, such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease, can run in families - knowing your family health history can save your life, as well as the lives of those you love.'' - Acting Surgeon General Kenneth Moritsugu
