Attention Deficit Disorders: An Ayurvedic Perspective
Managing Cancer: Part I

Attention Deficit Disorders: An Ayurvedic Perspective

by John Douillard, D.C.

The diagnosis, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is classified by three symptomatic characteristics: inattention, hyperactivity and impulsive behavior. In recent years much research has gone into identifying the cause of ADD. Thorough investigations have gone into lifestyle, sugar intake, excessive TV watching, and even chemical toxicity during pregnancy, an occurrence once thought to be the cause of minimal brain disorders or ADD. In all the research only a small and insignificant percentage of cases with ADD proved positive for such causative factors. To date, these factors remain neither proven nor disproved.

Managing Cancer Part I

by Dr. Marc Halpern

This is the first of a three part series exploring cancer. Part one focuses on the basics of cancer from a Western perspective while part two will focus on Ayurvedic knowledge of Cancer and part three its herbal, nutritional and holistic management.

By far, cancer is the most feared of all disease. Taunting humanity with the threat of a slow, painful death, it is often first disease people think they have when they experience pain or feel a lump in their bodies, and the last they want to talk about. Going to the doctor, patients wait with bated breath for the phone call that tells them, “yes or no”. That one phone call either brings tremendous relief, exhilaration and an appreciation for life or it brings shock and despair. While cancer is a devastating disease, the likelihood of dying of cancer is much less than dying from cardiovascular disease (heart attacks and strokes). Cardiovascular disease remains the number one killer and is responsible for three times as many deaths as all cancers combined. Still, approximately one in five people will develop some form of malignant cancer at some time in their life.
