From a very young age onward, everyone hears things like drink your milk and eat your vegetables . However, you never hear anyone saying, “Eat your meat” because no one needs encouragement to eat a nice juicy steak or big delicious hamburger. Americans love their beef. But are Americans eating the right type of beef for their health? If you have osteoarthritis, you’ll want to be sure to eat grass-fed beef. Before we get into the health benefits of beef that has not been fed corn, let’s take a little peek into the life of a cow.
A little calf is born all cute and fuzzy. At first, it starts getting its nutrients from mamma’s milk. Soon, it will begin to eat the grass or flake that Mr. Rancher provides. Once that baby grows into a 700 pound beast, it is shipped to the feed lots. At the feed lot with thousands of other cows, a cow gorges on corn feed. Here the cow puts on three pounds per day. When that cow hits the 1,200 pound mark, it is ready for sla...
The gallbladder is a pear-shaped pouch that sits just under the liver. It's main function is to store the bile made by the liver. The gallbladder then releases bile into the intestines as needed to digests fats. The more fat in the meal, the more the gallbladder works. Most "gallbladder diets" aim to reduce the workload on the gallbladder. They remove foods that could cause gallstones and reduce painful symptoms caused by gallbladder disease.

Fried or greasy foods
Whole-fat dairy and whole milk
Processed ("junk") foods
Healthy foods for gallbladder issues include:
Whole foods, fruits and vegetables
Lean, low-fat meats
Low-fat dairy and low-fat or skim milk
*Some research also indicates that moderate alcohol, drinking (caffeinated) coffee and eating...
I decided to experiment with a conversation with myself. I asked a simple and basic question and worked my way to complex and confusing:
What is depression?
The DSM-5, psychiatry’s diagnostic bible, refers to various conditions that involve feeling sad, inability to experience pleasure, lack of self-worth, inability to concentrate, and suicidal thinking, not to mention dysregulated sleep and appetite and movement, though you don’t have to experience all these at once.
But everyone gets depressed, right?
True. We all have our bad days. Also, all of us experience grief and loss and major challenges in coping with life. But all this is considered within the “normal” realm of human behavior.
Things change when we lose the ability to function, whether at work or in our relationships or in our own sense of well-being. We are more than just “depressed.” We are not ourselves. Our brains are not cooperating with us. L...
