HERE'S TO YOUR HEALTH: DAVES STORY PART I

Details

This week's HTYH is the beginning of Dave's story: The age of miracles has not passed, they're happening all around us and if you like happy endings you're in the right place. AA is full of happy endings. There are, of course, a few sad songs about the ones who took an arrow for us so that we might live, but we are the happy survivors. Before my recovery, I spent several months in the hospital and after they tested me for every malady known to science--nothing was found. After that the doctors...

A HEALTHY DAY: MAN & MACHINE

Details DR. JAMES NILL

Man and Machine

Is a computer like a human brain or is a human brain like a computer? When machines allow us to extend our abilities, are we enhancing our humanness or becoming more machine-like? What are the meaningful distinctions between humans and machines and how do these impact our daily pursuits of health, well-being, and happiness?

IT’S MY BODY; I’LL EXERCISE IT IF I HAVE TO

Details

Lately, I have noticed a lot of news regarding all aspects of the body. According to one report I read, this is a multibillion dollar-a-year business. I never knew my body was worth so much money. I'm tempted to sell it, or at least rent it out on a part-time basis.

HERE'S TO YOUR HEALTH: THE IMPORTANCE OF AA

Details

While practicing my alcoholism, everything was about me first. AA taught me to think about God first, others second and myself last and suddenly, happiness and serenity began to replace loneliness and fear. I didn't understand it, but life was so much better than it was that I gladly accepted it.

Not every day was sunshine and roses but life was better than it was and I had some new AA tools that allowed me to survive the hard days without picking up any alcohol or, drugs. I was able to see...

A HEALTHY DAY: CORE FITNESS

Details DR. JAMES NILL

CORE FITNESS - WHAT IS IT AND WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR?

Core training is a no-longer-new catchphrase on the fitness landscape. The concept of core fitness, by now, has been promoted by every Pilates school, yoga center, and chain of fitness clubs around the world. Many doctors, including chiropractors, physiatrists, orthopedists, and even cardiologists, emphasize the importance of core training with their patients. Practically every physical therapist and personal trainer has learned a variety of...

HERE'S TO YOUR HEALTH: STEPS 8 & 9

Details

I would like to share a story with you about steps 8 & 9. When I worked Step 8: Made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all. I had my employer on that list because I had a whole garage full of stuff that I had stolen from them--it was eating my lunch. My problem was how could I make that amends without returning the stuff I had stolen? All the tools in my garage belonged to my employer. I finally loaded up everything that belonged to them and...
