Editor’s Letter

Safety first, when it comes to our children

Our children’s section in this issue deals with computer, television and cellphone addiction. I am not only concerned about the addiction, but about the other hidden dangers as well. Children seem to learn how to use each new technological breakthrough as soon as it arrives, but somehow safety issues have taken a back seat.

Most parents are blissfully unaware of the sort of information their child is accessing through the computer. They do not suspect that the machine in their home has changed from being a toy or a source of knowledge to something that essentially drives a gulf between child and parents, especially those parents who work.

More and more frequently we learn about police posing as children in order to flush out online predators. This alone brings home to me the fact that the problem is an increasing one and is cause for serious concern.

Children tend to believe they are safe when talking to strangers with the computer as a buffer, and it doesn’t seem to bother them or their parents. We put so much effort into warning our children not to talk to strangers, and to be careful crossing the street – why is it so difficult to be diligent in cautioning them about Internet safety?

Maybe, assuming that children know more than they do, today’s parents don’t see the point of lecturing them. What we fail to realise is that, computer smart as they may be, today’s children are not street wise. Be responsible. Our children depend on us, their parents, to protect them. No one else will.

How to Apply Workplace Wellness

Many of us stumble from one self-help programme to another without getting any real results. Why is this? Are the programmes ineffective? No. People go on to the next quick fix or magic pill because they are counting on the external item to do all the work and provide eternal happiness, while simultaneously healing or curing them. This isn’t going to happen! Self-help means taking personal responsibility. You have to apply what you learn.

Optimal Nutrition for Hair, Nails and Skin

Healthy hair, skin and nails are an outward sign of health and vitality, and their poor condition may reflect many biochemical imbalances in the body. Hair and nails indicate the health of the body 2 to 6 months previously. This means that much of what is going on inside you will quickly be reflected in this organ system, collectively known as the integumentary system.

Computer & Cellphone Enslaved Children

There can be little doubt that electronic technology has opened the way to another form of soul addiction, promising to offer ever-more powerful and interesting gratification to the hungry unsatisfied soul of the child. Computer game, Internet and cellphone addiction disorders are not yet formally recognised as clinical psychological conditions, yet many clinics and rehab centres worldwide are treating them as full-on addictive disorders, recognising that the salient features fulfil all the criteria used to define an addictive behaviour disorder.

The role of nutritional supplements in the treatment of disease has been underrated by conventional medical training. This is surprising considering the fact that health is dependent on the supply of nutrition to all the cells of the body. Magnesium, for example, plays a role in over 300 enzyme reactions in the body and zinc is required in over 200 enzyme processes.

Midlife – a Crisis of the Spirit

This quote above quote offers an insight into the state of mind that can overcome a person during the midlife crisis. ‘Midway this way of life we’re bound upon, I woke to find myself in a dark wood, where the right road was wholly lost and gone.’ ~Dante’s Inferno. For many it is a long, dark night of the soul, a plunge into regions of feeling and experience that often surprise us with their intensity and nature.

Lower your Risk for Heart Disease

In the past, many more men than women died from heart disease, but in recent years the numbers have evened out, with more women than men dying from strokes. For most people over 50, having cancer or losing one’s memory holds the greatest fear, but in fact more people die prematurely from diseases of the heart and arteries than anything else – roughly half from heart attacks and a quarter from strokes.
