Dr Oz announces the benefits of organic virgin red palm oil. Virgin Palm Oil is palm oil that is traditionally made and maintains the natural nutrients of carotenes (precursors to Vitamin A) and the antioxidant tocotrienols (Vitamin E). Typical RBD (Refined, Bleached, and Deodorized) palm oil has these nutrients stripped from them resulting in a clear oil. In its natural state, palm oil is red in color due to a high concentration of carotenes and tocols.

Lavender Placing some dried lavender in your pillowcase, or even using essential oil of lavender, is often the perfect solution for those with sleep issues. Lavender oil is used in aromatherapy to calm and to aid in sleep, and it’s also great for depression and anxiety relief. Some people even enjoy using dried lavender to prepare a tea before bedtime. But if you prefer to avoid taking anything internally, then simply smelling the aroma is enough to aid in a restful night. Don’t take the oil internally, however. And if applying topically, make sure it’s blended with a carrier oil. Lavender oil on its own can be too harsh for the skin.
Although caution must often be taken no matter how natural our sleep aid, the good news is there are plenty of safe alternatives that won’t leave you heavy lidded come morning. Just a few nights without sufficient sleep can be enough to throw off your health, both mentally and physically, so trying some herbs could be just what you need for your sleeplessness. Hypnotherapy for sleep is also a good alternative.

BUFFALO, NY(WBFO) - The Patient Centered Medical Home model has been gaining popularity with medical practices, including some in western new york. Now the civilian health care approach is being adopted by the Veterans Administration Healthcare system.
What are some of the basic principles of holistic medicine?
Optimal health is the primary goal of holistic medical practice. It is the conscious pursuit of the highest level of functioning and balance of the physical, environmental, mental, emotional, social and spiritual aspects of human experience, resulting in a dynamic state of being fully 'alive'. This creates a condition of well-being regardless of the presence or absence of disease.
Prevention and Treatment. Holistic health care practitioners promote health, prevent illness and help raise awareness of dis-ease in our lives rather than merely managing symptoms. A holistic approach relieves symptoms, modifies contributing factors, and enhances the patient’s life system to optimize future well-being.
Individuality. Holistic health care practitioners focus patient care on the unique needs and nature of the person who has an illness rather than the illness that has the person.
Relationship-centered Care. The ideal practitioner-patient relationship is a partnership which encourages patient autonomy, and values the needs and insights of both parties. The quality of this relationship is an essential contributor to the healing process.
