A HEALTHY DAY: STRETCHING

Details DR. JAMES NILL

HAMLET'S FITNESS

"To stretch or not to stretch." That wasn't exactly Hamlet's question. The Prince of Denmark had matters of state to consider, especially the most effective method to avenge the murder of his father. Getting ready for his next fencing lesson had taken low priority.

But for the rest of us who aren't Nordic princes, matters of fitness are in fact akin to matters of state, namely the state of our bodies. Your fitness choices are critically important to your health and...

HERE'S TO YOUR HEALTH: CINDY'S STORY PART VI

Details

This week's HTYH is a continuation of Cindy's story: I have come to believe that a benevolent God, of my understanding, kept me alive long enough to find Alcoholics Anonymous. God led me to A.A. and then A.A. led me to God. The people in A.A. surrounded me with love and humor until I could learn to love and laugh again. I surrendered to my sponsor too and we worked the 12 steps together, but I take little credit because it began, on my knees, in the bathroom of the South Unit when I prayed...

Details DR. JAMES NILL

HERE'S TO YOUR HEALTH: CINDY'S STORY PART V

Details

This week's HTYH is a continuation of Cindy's story: While I was standing in that frozen parking lot staring at that empty ball diamond a woman named Rose came outside, and said, "Whatever you're thinking, don't worry, focus on what's in front of you, and everything will be all right. They suggested that I should get a poker chip (beginner chip) and start listening to what was being said. I did as they suggested because already, I knew that they had something that I desperately wanted. They...

A HEALTHY DAY: CLINICAL DEPRESSION

Details DR. JAMES NILL

THE PAIN OF CLINICAL DEPRESSION

Many of us think of depression as a psychological condition. The causes of depression are sought in the person's childhood or in her personal circumstances as an adult. But within the last 10 or 20 years depression is increasingly being evaluated within a physiological context. Various disease states and physical disorders are being recognized as important contributors to depression. This viewpoint is empowering to persons with depression and often provides a...

IT’S GOOD YOU TOLD ME

Details

Sexual abuse is not just an East Coast problem. Make no mistake that the sexual abuse in Pennsylvania – and now a high profile case connected to Syracuse University in New York – is a problem everywhere. It happens here. It takes a great deal of moral courage to report child sexual abuse or any kind of child abuse. We fear we will be identified to the perpetrator or that our job might be in jeopardy if we report a colleague. If we know the perpetrator we may doubt the validity of what we saw or...
