Beat Diabetes: 4 Ways to Prevent Type 2 Diabetes

Beat Diabetes: 4 Ways to Prevent Type 2 Diabetes

Preventative medicine is rapidly becoming the focus of many doctors who would prefer to help their patients prevent rather than treat a disease like diabetes. Candice Hall, DC, is a California-based doctor doing just that to help treat many patients at her Irvine clinic and has noticed an increase in diabetes diagnoses. The odds are you or someone you know is dealing with this disease that affects 350 million people worldwide. Ninety percent of diabetes diagnoses are Type 2, which is the most common and preventable version of this disease. Twenty-nine million Americans are diagnosed with diabetes every year.

“Patients come into my office complaining about the horrible effects of the disease and all the medications they have been prescribed,” Hall said. “Some patients are on half a dozen different prescriptions to treat everything from their blood sugar levels to their high blood pressure, high cholesterol, neuropathy and even sleep disorders. It’s heartbreaking.”

Dr. Hall believes that this disease can be reversed and many of her patients have not only reported significantly lowered A1c levels (the 3-month average of blood glucose levels), but their physicians have taken them off a majority of their medications, which may include oral medications and regular insulin injections. A majority of those patients have seen weight loss as a result.

Dr. Hall is on a mission to stop...

3 Things Not To Say To Your Toddler

3 Things Not To Say To Your Toddler

You would think that I’d have figured this out by now. But no, the drama class is every day in my house. No prerequisites. My husband and I often go back and forth until one of us caves — usually the next day. It’s a lot of work. But when I’m right, it’s well worth it.

So arguing with a toddler is a whole different ballgame. There has to be a strategy, otherwise you might go into a psychotic rage next time they ask you “Why?”

1. NEVER, never tell them you have a surprise for them.

Don’t tell them until you physically have it in your possession and are ready to give it to them. Otherwise, there could be an unplanned hostage situation, or early bedtime, which is not pretty.

If you make the mistake of telling them without being prepared, you will be bombarded with 20 questions to the point that you might drive to the toy store — and the surprise is now picking out the most expensive toy (when you had a bag of dollar store toys in the closet for potty training or rewards).

“What is it?”

“Can I have it now?”

“But I want it now.”

“Is it a toy?”

“Is it candy?”

“Can I see it?”

“Can you show me?”

You will regret ever saying anything.

2. Don’t tell them to go to sleep AT BEDTIME.

They will do anything to stay up. They will pull out the big guns.

“I forgot to say a prayer.”

“I need...

Men lose their minds speaking to pretty women

 Men lose their minds speaking to pretty womenThe research shows men who spend even a few minutes in the company of an attractive woman perform less well in tests designed to measure brain function than those who chat to someone they do not find attractive Photo: GETTY

The research shows men who spend even a few minutes in the company of an attractive woman perform less well in tests designed to measure brain function than those who chat to someone they do not find attractive.

Researchers who carried out the study, published in the Journal of Experimental and Social Psychology, think the reason may be that men use up so much of their brain function or 'cognitive resources' trying to impress beautiful women, they have little left for other tasks.

The findings have implications for the performance of men who flirt with women in the workplace, or even exam results in mixed-sex schools.

Women, however, were not affected by chatting to a handsome man.

This may be simply because men are programmed by evolution to think more about mating opportunities.

Psychologists at Radboud University in The Netherlands carried out the study after one of them was so struck on impressing an attractive woman he had never met before, that he could not remember his address when she asked him where he lived.

Researchers said it was as if he was so keen to make an impression he 'temporarily absorbed most of his cognitive resources.'

Lessons From a Marriage

Lessons From a Marriage

In a few days, we will celebrate fifty years together. That we have lived this long is due, undoubtedly, more to genetic and environmental luck, modern medicine, and some reasonable choices than to anything else. That we have stayed married this long owes much to the social support of family and friends who provided us with the benefit of their love and support, sustaining us in a world that can make life difficult and dangerous.

I like to think, as well, that we have benefited from a deep and practiced love. Falling in love is the easy part. But staying in love - protecting and building a marriage - is harder. There is, after all, so much in life that can tear the fabric woven at a wedding. We both have had to learn how to mix love and caring into the cement of the foundation of a good relationship.

In part as self-reflection, and in a small way as thankfulness for the opportunity life has given us to learn, we’ve extracted some of the major lessons derived from our journey together. Though sketched just briefly here, each is a much more complex work of art that could be drawn on the canvas of our lives from memories and painted with words:

Focus on what’s important for your marriage, not just on what’s important for you - on “we” not “me.” If it builds your marriage, it builds you as well.

Only say “no” if it really matters. And it really matters a lot less than you think.

5 Problems Husbands And Wives Have While Arguing, Solved By Therapists

5 Problems Husbands And Wives Have While Arguing, Solved By Therapists

When you’ve been together for years, sometimes even figuring out how you’ll resolve an argument becomes an argument. 

We recently asked our readers to share the most persistent roadblocks they run into when arguing with their spouses. Below, relationship experts tackle each problem.

“Your story sounds frustrating and very familiar. Many of the couples I work with experience the same problem and it’s discouraging when partners don’t feel like their S.O. is hearing an issue. In my practice, I teach couples a dialogue skill that has helped them work through issues in a meaningful way. It’s called the Imago Dialogue: The purpose of this technique is not to determine who’s right and who’s wrong. It doesn’t include fault or blame, but instead focuses on connecting in a healthy way through understanding. When you really listen to your partner, you are cultivating a safe space where they can freely express their feelings. The goal is not to agree, but to understand. You and your husband should try to validate and empathize with each other’s perspective. When this happens, a beautiful, safe connection begins to develop. That’s how you turn conflict on its head and actually use it to grow closer together.” — 

13 Things Men Think About Women But Never Say

13 Things Men Think About Women But Never Say

Between magazines, romantic comedies, and generally baseless cultural assumptions, women have long been guessing what men are really thinking. His feet are slanted towards you at a 15-degree angle? Then he’s in love. 30-degree angle? He wants nothing to do with you. Then there are the totally speculative “what he really wants” sex tips like this real “tip” from a “real” guy in Cosmopolitan: “‘We need you to get a little rough and grab on to it like you’re milking a cow. You may think you’re hurting him, but I guarantee if you ask, he’d request more,’ says Steven, 23.” Why is 23-year-old Steven trying to cause us men so much pain? And aren’t we all smart enough to know that 23-year-old Steven is probably a 30-year-old female staff writer who’s just throwing down some ideas to make deadline?

We men are complex creatures, and we’ll admit that we can be a bit of trouble sometimes, especially when it comes to communicating what we really want. Whether it’s fear of rejection, fear of compromising our masculinity, or fear of butting up against cultural norms, we often keep our true thoughts to ourselves. It’s a shame too because then we leave it up to Hollywood and magazines to tell women what we’re thinking. In order to solve all that, take a look at the biggest things men think about women but never say:

The importance of the father-daughter relationship

The importance of the father-daughter relationship

A girl’s father is one of the most influential people in her life, from infant to toddler to tween to teen. Learn why Dad has such a big impact on his little girl’s development into a strong, confident woman.

A father's influence in his daughter's life shapes her self-esteem, self-image, confidence and opinions of men. "How Dad approaches life will serve as an example for his daughter to build off of in her own life, even if she chooses a different view of the world," says Michael Austin, associate professor of philosophy at Eastern Kentucky University and editor of Fatherhood - Philosophy for Everyone: The Dao of Daddy.

"What matters in the father-daughter relationship is that Dad seeks to live a life of integrity and honesty, avoiding hypocrisy and admitting his own shortcomings, so that she has a realistic and positive example of how to deal with the world. He should try to model a reflective approach to life's big questions so that she can seek to do the same," he adds.

Dads and daughters: From infant to toddler

We now live in a culture where Dad is an equal partner in care giving. From day one, dads are encouraged to be hands-on, changing diapers, giving baths, putting Baby to sleep and calming her cries. That presence and effort is the beginning of a very important relationship.

8 Habits of Incredibly Interesting People

8 Habits of Incredibly Interesting People

Interesting people have a special magnetism. They tell incredible stories and lead unusual lives. But what exactly makes them so captivating?

They’re curious more than anything else. An interesting person is always excited to explore the world, and this energy radiates outward.

Some people are naturally interesting, but there are also ways to learn to be more engaging. Dr. Clair Nixon is known throughout Texas A&M as an incredibly interesting accounting professor (an oxymoron if there ever was one). Accounting is a difficult subject to make interesting and fun, which is what makes Dr. Nixon so special. He’s so good at making things interesting that he doesn’t just teach accounting, he also gives lectures on how to be more interesting.

Indeed, anyone can learn to become more interesting, which is a wonderful thing, because being interesting can help you strengthen your network, win more clients, and lead more effectively.

There are several habits that many interesting people have in common. Sometimes these habits form naturally, but they are more often than not the result of conscious effort. Here’s what interesting people do to make themselves engaging, unusual, and hypnotizing.

40 Things Husbands Should Stop Doing

40 Things Husbands Should Stop Doing

Sometimes we need encouragement in our quest to step up and be the men God has called us to be.  Sometimes we need information, and sometimes we need training.  Sometimes we need a mentor—someone who will show us how to be godly men, how to love our wives as Christ loves the church.

And sometimes we need to know what we should stop doing.  Sometimes we may even need someone to say, “Hey, stop acting like a jerk!”

That’s what this list is about. 

One of the most popular articles on our website is “15 Things Wives Should Stop Doing.”  When we first posted it, several readers asked for a similar list for husbands, so we gathered suggestions from a number of men.  Here's a list of their best ideas.  Of course, not all of these items apply to all men.  But perhaps something here will hit home for you. 

Two things to remember:  First, these items were sent to me by other men, not by wives.  Second, some readers have expressed concern that this list for husbands has 40 items while the corresponding article for women has 15.  I'm not sending a message here—I'm not saying husbands need more help than wives.  It's just ... a different list!

1. Stop acting like the battle is won in pursuing and getting to know your wife. Have fun together, just like you used to do before you walked down the aisle.

5 Bad Excuses that Stop You from Going Full-Time with Your Passion

5 Bad Excuses that Stop You from Going Full-Time with Your Passion

This week was a momentous occasion. After years of working in the traditional workforce, I left my job and went full-time with the business I had created just three months ago.

My thoughts on the matter? Well . . . I’m honestly surprised it took so long.

I don’t mean that to sound arrogant or prideful, and I don’t want you to think that this blog is the only thing I’m talking about here. I could’ve went full-time with many blogs I created in the past.

It took a long time for me to go full-time with my businesses in the past because quite frankly, I overcomplicated everything.

I placed layer after layer of excuses between my dream and me. And while some excuses were valid, many weren’t.

So now as I finally took the leap to go full-time with my blog, I reflect on some of the bad excuses that kept me stuck in the past.

Maybe you too struggle with many worries and fears circulating around the decision to take your blog seriously. But the problem is, you don’t know the difference between a bad excuse and a good reason. Therefore, you take every worry and fear seriously.

In reflecting back on my bad excuses, my hope is that you’ll be able to distinguish the essential from the non-essential when it comes to turning your blog into an awesome business.

Here’s the list of every bad excuse that kept me from taking my dream seriously:
