Ritalin Epidemic Sweeps College. Can Neurofeedback be an alternative?

 
 
Ritalin and Adderall are serious prescription drugs which help ADHD and ADD patients find the focus they need to lead a functional life. These very drugs, either prescribed by an easy doctor, or bought as a street drug, are massively abused by students from high school to Ivy League campuses. These drugs seriously “unlevel” the playing field in academic performance.

Health Blog: Make this year count in a way that is inspiring and meaningful to you!

You’ve still got time!

It is not too late to make reasonable goals for 2012I used to make resolutions.  They were always things that were good for me.  Like, “this year I am going to floss my teeth.”  Or “this year I’m going to go to the gym regularly for sure.”  At some point, (after years of making them) I realized that no matter how great my enthusiasm come January 1st, by the time March rolled around I had all but forgot my resolution.

Health Blog: Exercise – The Fountain of Youth, Part 2

 

You can boost your immunity through proper exercise

Knowing the proper way to exercise will go a long way to keep your body young and stave off disease. Starting in adolescence our body’s internal army, the immune system, slowly begins to lose its ability to fight off invaders such as viruses and bacteria. The reason for this is believed to be the gradual shrinking of our body’s primary organ of the immune system, the thymus gland, which begins to shrink around puberty and by age 60 is barely visible.
