HERE'S TO YOUR HEALTH: DAVES STORY PART VIII

Details

This week's HTYH is the conclusion of Dave's story: Let me tell you about my sons. I was told when I first came around AA that if I got a sponsor, worked the steps and attended AA meetings my life would straighten out, and it did, but it didn't instantly fix my family. Practicing alcoholics make other family members sick too. And just because we get a sponsor, work the steps and go to meetings and straighten out--our families are still sick.

Around my house, at least when I was drinking, the...

A HEALTHY DAY: MEDITATION

Details DR. NILL

A HEALTHY DAY: HAVE YOU BEEN SUFFERING FROM CHRONIC KNEE PAIN?

Details DR. JAMES NILL

Chronic knee pain is notoriously difficult to treat successfully. Persons with these problems often become discouraged as they shuttle from specialist to specialist, from rheumatologist to orthopedic surgeon to physical therapist to acupuncturist and back again. Lack of progress and improvement becomes understandable when one considers that typical evaluation and treatment are directed at the symptoms. But with chronic knee pain, and many other pain syndromes, actual benefits may be obtained by...

HERE'S TO YOUR HEALTH: DAVES STORY PART VI

Details

This week's HTYH is a continuation of Dave's story: After I had listed my resentments my sponsor asked me to find my part in them? I didn't like that. Take a good look at those resentments and see where you were selfish, dishonest or frightened. Tell me your part in that resentment David? I finally told my sponsor that I didn't have a part in that resentment because my mother kicked me not the other way around. I was only 13 when it happened, but he helped me see there was a difference between...
