Some of the most important items in your First Aid kit* are mental tricks. Practicing the ability to stay calm and rational will aid you in any emergency.
Here is a new memory trick to help you save a life if you suspect someone near you is having a stroke. Response time is extremely important with a stroke, and a delay can mean the difference between full recovery and severe brain damage.
Often people will have a stroke and not realize it. Symptoms can develop suddenly and unexpectedly. You should suspect someone is having a stroke if they exhibit signs of sudden numbness, weakness, paralysis, confusion, vision problems, difficulties walking, or a splitting headache.
The faster you can provide medical intervention, the better you make their odds for completely reversing the stroke symptoms. A stroke can affect senses, speech, behavior, thoughts, memory and mobility.
I am a licensed acupuncturist as well as a registered nurse. I have been practicing acupuncture at Ruscombe Mansion since 1988, after graduating from Tai Sophia in Columbia, Maryland. I have been involved in health care for over 30 years. In addition to my private practice, I have been on the faculty of the Tai Sophia Institute since 1990.
I have found, through the years, that many symptoms respond well to acupuncture including: headaches, sleep disorders, stress-related issues, musculo-skeletal problems, arthritis, fibromyalgia, digestive issues, respiratory problems, ob/gyn issues, and many others. If you have any questions, I would be glad to have a phone consultation with you about your concerns.

They are seeking volunteers with a diagnosis of cancer to participate in a scientific study of states of consciousness brought about by psilocybin, and their impact on psychological distress and spirituality.
Other studies need volunteers who want to quit smoking or practice meditation facillatated with psilocybin and counseling in a controlled environment.

There is a new understanding emerging about the relationship between weight and health.

Among questions we will explore: How important is weight loss for achieving our optimal health? Does anything work for long-term weight loss?

Lisa Stambolis Honored as a Champion of Change for work with Health Care for the Homeless.
You can see why a state might require minors to have a parent's OK before they receive medical care. But Maryland law has made life especially difficult for homeless teenagers who have no adults watching out for them.
It's the sort of problem that drives Lisa Stambolis crazy. As director of pediatric and adolescent health at Health Care for the Homeless in Baltimore, she organized people — including homeless teens — to press for change. It worked. A new law offering more leeway for minors' medical treatment goes into effect Oct. 1.
In July, Stambolis was honored for her efforts and named a White House "Champion of Change," one of 13 selected for their efforts on behalf of homeless youth.
Tell President Obama: Don't appoint fracking proponent Dr. Ernest Moniz to lead the Department of Energy
President Obama keeps saying we need to confront climate change. So why is he considering appointing a major proponent of fracking to lead the Department of Energy? According to Reuters, President Obama is seriously considering appointing Dr. Ernest Moniz - the director of MIT's Big Oil-sponsored Energy Institute and a big believer in expanding toxic, climate-heating gas fracking. At a time when the last thing we should be doing is undermining our progress against climate change, Moniz is the wrong choice to head one of the most important agencies in the fight for a sustainable energy future. Tell President Obama: Stop promoting fracking, and don't appoint Ernest Moniz to head the Department of Energy!
