“There is only one disease – congestion,
and only one cure – circulation”
— Chinese proverb
Here are some blogs I read for body health info. I want to be healthy for whatever time I’m going to live inside this bottle, and I want all of you to maximize the maintenance of your bods, too.
The Musculoskeletal Network
Nearly everyone experiences some sort of pain caused by malfunctions of that machine structure our consciousness sits in while we are on Earth. Sometimes people are surprised to learn that the best practitioners of ordinary Western medicine (like the ones I work for) often prescribe alternative therapies and exercise instead of drugs for chronic pain. The intent of any good doctor is to do whatever works, and what will not harm the patient. This kind of information is pretty technical, but my readers are smart. Here’s a current article on non-drug approaches for managing Low Back Pain (LBP), a common condition.
The American Heart Association at
Why do most people die when they die? Something stops the pump. You may not think of this old-school charitable organization immediately as an info source, but it’s one of the easiest to use, clearest, well-organized sites for all sorts of topics related to keeping your heart and circulation system healthy. It’s written for general readers, and it’s unbiased. Anyone can learn from them.
Jacques Courseault, M.D. at Exercise Menu http://exercisemenu.com/
This guy was a personal trainer who became a physician, so now he writes a blog providing free information combining both disciplines. There are articles about many different kinds of workouts, but also ones on diet, weight loss, and managing diabetes and blood pressure problems. I especially liked his articles on keeping kids healthy by having a family dog, and his holiday post about how mental health is the foundation of fitness.
I hope you enjoyed this closer look at my reading list.
