I would like to start with what some common health symptoms mean. Some are harmless
while other can indicate a serious problem. This is a list given by Dr. David S. Smith, a
medical professor and chief of internal medicine for Yale University's HMO.
Sleep jerks - the arm and leg jerking that people get when falling asleep - are normal
and nothing to worry about.
Ringing in the ears usually has a relatively benign cause related to damage to the
hearing nerve from loud noise. If the ringing is in both ears, it could signal an over dose
of medication, such as aspirin. If the ringing is on one side along with decreased hearing,
it could signal something more important like a neurological tumor.
If ringing persists, see a doctor.
Dry mouth could be related to your medications and medical history. Some people
naturally have dry oral membranes, so it's nothing to worry about. Cotton mouth can
be a side effect from medications such as anti-histamines. It also can be due to
de-hydration and may signal some underlying problem. (See my July Newsletter book
review on "Your Bodies Many Cries for Water")
Dizziness when standing is usually caused by a temporary drop in blood pressure.
It's a common side effect of medication, but it also can be seen with dehydration or
Eyelid twitches are experienced by most people at some point and are virtually never
anything to worry about. (If extreme it could be tourrettes syndrome and require further consideration)
A racing heart can be a symptom of anxiety, but there are many serious conditions
that can cause abnormal heart rhythms. It doesn't always indicate a problem, but you
should see a doctor.
Butterflies in the stomach are usually an anxiety symptom and not a big deal.
Relaxation techniques should help. If you have stomach pain, see your doctor.
White spots under the nails are usually due to trauma. They're nothing to worry
Jaw pain can be due to lots of problems. Usually a tooth abscess or sinus infection
triggers it. Pain that goes up into the jaw can be seen with a heart attack, while pain with
chewing can occur with a serious inflammatory condition called giant cell arteritis. See
your doctor to find the cause.
Floaters in the eyes -- small dark flecks that occasionally float around - are harmless.
But a shower of hundreds of them could signal a torn or detached retina and requires
He concluded with "If any symptom is persistent or painful, then you should see a doctor."

In this life, each individual is continually confronted by problems - difficulties in relation to
persons, situations, and goals. Some of these problems can be quite large. but the attitude
the person takes toward his problems can, literally, finish him off.
There are four methods of dealing with problems:
Type 1 - The first way of dealing with a problem is to let it get you down. The key
words are "hopeless/helpless." This person is unable to solve problems relating to others,
situations, or goals. If relationships are sour, circumstances unfavorable, and goals seemingly unachievable, he sinks into a depression, characterized by feelings of helplessness and
hopelessness. This person seems unable to change his negative view of life. He consistently
chooses to keep depression as a habit to run into and hide. The coronary reports revealed
the fact that the person choosing this type of behavior is highly prone to cancer.
Type 2 - This way is to blow up. The key words are "frustrated/angry." This person
also seems unable to deal with problems in a positive way. Instead, he becomes disgusted
or loses his temper. The person choosing this type of behavior is highly prone to heart disease.
Type 3 - This person remains positive, and turns his attention to finding a new way -
a different way - to tackle the problem and resolve it. the key words here are
"cheerful/positive." the significant factor, of course, is the continued positive outlook. The
individual selecting this type of response to problems - tends not to get sick! These people
have the lowest incidence of disease. In fact, they have the lowest incidence of death due
to all causes, including accidents.
Type 4 - This method increases the positive outlook of Type 3 living, intensifies the
healthful results, and makes it easier to switch from Type 1 and Type 2, to Type 3 behavior.
It is to take it to God in prayer. Those who do this have found that it produces wonderful
results. In some cases, a beautiful solution appears all by itself. At other times, the person
will arise from prayer, greatly encouraged to press forward in a Type 3 approach: With a
positive outlook. he will try a new way to solve the problem.
There is something else about Type 4 living which is special: The person who puts
God first in his life - will spend much of his thought and energy trying to make the lives of
others happier. The person who is busy helping others, will always seem to have fewer
problems. The reason is that he is too busy being a blessing to others - to give them much

different types of bacterial, fungal, and virus conditions with great success
including streptococcus. (We have even put a few drops in a capsule and swallowed it which
is common in Europe although the FDA says not to take oils internally. We do make sure we don't
swallow the capsule on an empty stomach. Also never, never take more than 3 capsules over 3 days as
essential oils stay in your system for approx. 20 days. )
