If so, perhaps, you know what I mean when I say that at times, the twin thing can get ridiculous. For example: A woman once asked if my identical twin and I were brothers. We told her, “We’re twins.” Then she inquired, “How long have you been twins?”
Despite the weirdness that surrounds twins at times, researchers believe that there are important answers to health questions being learned from the genetic study of twins.
The disappointment on the woman’s face was unmistakable.
After explaining in some detail how her efforts to abide by a strictly raw food diet had failed to have any real impact on her health, the response she received from the evening’s keynote speaker was anything but encouraging.
“I’m sorry to say this,” replied renowned health expert, Dr. Andrew Weil, to a packed auditorium at San Francisco’s Hyatt Regency hotel, “but a raw food diet is not something I would recommend as a way to improve your health.”
With my Indiana home frozen and snowed in lately, I've been watching some old movies. What struck me about one movie, The Inn of the Sixth Happiness, was that the Chinese believe each person must find what the sixth happiness is in his own heart.
What's so bad about thinking good thoughts affect your health in a positive way?
Most of us define health as the absence of something bad instead of the presence of something good. Maybe it’s time for a health tweak or tune up, not of our own health (not that there’s anything wrong with that either) but of how we define what health is.

Here's a truly transformational goal: Take greater control of your own health. Learning to assert more authority over how we care for ourselves could be the key to real health care reform.
I've found that taking time in the early morning to pray and study gives me a healthy perspective from which to launch my day. My primary source of inspiration is always the Bible and one of my favorite verses is "Behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it."
The spiritual insights recorded in the Bible and many other books such as Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures have long been the basis for healing disease and addressing other health concerns. What is unusual today about the use of prayer in healing is the rigorous research by scientists exploring the connection between prayer, spirituality, and physical healing.
"Free at last, free at last, thank God almighty, we are free at last".
This was Martin Luther King Jr's rallying cry as he concluded his historic "I have a dream" speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.
The lyrics of the moving spiritual song are also words many long to sing for health reasons. Struggling with long-standing ailments such as chronic pain can feel like second class citizenship, which Martin Luther King Day today reminds us never to accept.
At least a hundred years before health care reform became all the rage, religious reformer and medical pioneer Mary Baker Eddy spoke of a growing interest in “a higher mode of medicine.” Little did she know it would take so long for many of the changes she envisioned to find the broad support and practical application we’re seeing today, particularly within the field of mind-body medicine.
