“.. Throughout the film, Melvin engages in ritualistic behaviors (i.e., compulsions) that disrupt his interpersonal and professional life. This cinematic representation of psychopathology accurately depicts the functional interference and distress associated with OCD; however, Melvin’s over-the-top eccentricities obscure the boundary between what is “quirky” and what is OCD. To clarify this distinction, I will discuss Melvin’s OCD symptoms with a focus on differentiating them from his underlying personality traits. ..”

“..Its basic recommendation encourages the daily practice of meditation, and this is perhaps the best way to address the root of depression and change it. This requires long-term commitment, however, as meditation does not produce immediate results.

Exercise. For more immediate, symptomatic depression treatment, there is no better method than regular aerobic exercise. Numerous studies have demonstrated the efficacy of a daily workout for improving emotional health and boosting self confidence. I recommend thirty minutes of continuous activity, at least five days a week for best results.
Check your meds. Make sure you are not taking any over-the-counter or prescription medications that contribute to depression. Avoid all antihistamines, tranquilizers, sleeping pills and narcotics if you have any tendency toward depression. You should also be cautious about the use of recreational drugs, notably alcohol, cocaine, amphetamines, downers, marijuana and ecstasy. These substances may provide a temporary sense of relief, but are likely to intensify depression to dangerous levels if used regularly.
Cut caffeine. Addiction to coffee and other forms of caffeine often interferes with normal moods and can aggravate depression.
Try acupuncture. This modality has proven itself to be very useful in treating several mood disorders, including depression.
Seek professional help. Find a psychotherapist, mental health professional or grief counselor who can help you explore the elements contributing to your depression and facilitate recovery. Cognitive behavioral therapy can be especially helpful.
Anti-depressant medications. Speak to your physician to determine if you are a candidate for anti-depressant medication. Proceed with caution, however, as an analysis by British researchers published in February, 2008, suggested that many commonly prescribed anti-depressant pharmaceuticals have limited effectiveness.

Nutrition and Supplements For Depression

“..

We’ll be doing a story on CAM therapies for psychiatric disorders in an upcoming issue of the Harvard Mental Health Letter. For now, here are some things I learned on Saturday:

Omega-3 fats, natural fats found in large quantities in cold-water fish such as salmon, can boost the effectiveness of an antidepressant in some people with depression. Omega-3 supplements are now being studied as an alternative to antidepressants during pregnancy.

St. John’s wort is an herbal remedy that can help people with mild-to-moderate symptoms of depression, but doesn’t seem to work as well for severe depression. St. John’s wort can cause problems when taken with some antidepressants and other medications, so talk with your doctor before trying it.

Maca root, a relative of the potato that is used in some cultures to enhance sexual response, may help counter erectile dysfunction, reduced libido, and other sexual side effects of antidepressants.

Valerian, derived from the root of a pink flower, can alleviate anxiety and help improve sleep just as well as some sedatives. It may be a good alternative to consider for children and the elderly—two groups especially sensitive to the side effects of medications. One downside: it takes a while to “kick in,” so if you need fast relief, look elsewhere.

Words to the wise. Just because these remedies come from plants and animals doesn’t automatically mean they are safe. Herbal remedies have unwanted side effects and can interact with medications just like antidepressants and other drugs do. Talk with your doctor before trying any alternative approach, especially if you take any medications…”

Health & Fitness: What “Motivates” you and how to stay “committed” to what you started?

Why do you want to keep “healthy” ? Why do you want to keep “fit”? What “motivates” you to do one of the other or both? Everyone has some “personal” reason to do each of these or both? However, what keeps one going?

Fitness: Deep Thought-“What Motivates YOU to Workout?” w/healthfitnesslifeguy

What keeps me striving to keep healthy is my “medical challenges”. I was diagnosed “border-line” pre-diabetic (see Health: How to “fight” Diabetes? goodnewshealthandfitness.wordpress.com ) at “too” young age (27 or so). I have a family (mom’s side) history of “diabetes” and don’t want to be the “next” one in line.

What about you? What’s your family’s medical history? Whatever “barriers” you were “born” or “inherited” with, don’t let it STOP you. Instead, let it “motivate” you to “overcome” it! We all were born with some “disability” or “challenge”, no one was born “perfect”!

Benefits of Working Out

“Happy” Hormones

Feel happier after working out? You’re not imagining it coach.nine.com.au
“…Here are the most prominent theories:
There’s increased blood flow to the brain

The reason you feel so alert after a good huff-and-puff could be thanks to increased blood volume in the brain…

You get a surge of happy hormones

Researchers believe that exercising to the point of fatigue causes an increase in tryptophan, which leads to the synthesis of the serotonin neurotransmitter, which is what antidepressants target…

It gives you a sense of accomplishment

It’s not just physiological changes – there are also psychological affects that come from ticking exercise off your to-do list for the day, in the form of that little fist-pump feeling…

It helps you sleep better

It’s no secret that sleeping poorly can suck the joy out of life, so the fact exercise helps regulate our sleep patterns makes it an obvious mood enhancer…”

Eat lightly — the more food you consume, the harder your digestive organs have to work. You likely won’t have too much of an appetite while you have diarrhea, so try to eat small amounts spread throughout the day.
Simple foods that are easy to digest — stick with a diet of bland foods like simple whole grains, apples, bananas and rice the first few days. These foods are easy on the digestive system and can provide some fiber to help add bulk to stools.
Flaxseed oil — this has been shown to reduce the duration of diarrhea.
Fruits and vegetables — these provide water, fiber and electrolytes. Try making a smoothie or sorbet with fruit, and steaming veggies to make them easier to digest. Monitor your symptoms to make sure they don’t get worse, however, as some people react badly to too much natural sugar.

Health: Effects of LED Lights?

LED lights causing health problems? – YouTube

LED lighting might be more energy efficient, but could have health risks

The Dark Side of LED Lightbulbs https://www.scientificamerican.com

LED Lights: The Dark Side – YouTube

Health Risks of High Power LED Lights by LINDA TARR KENT • June 13, 2017 livestrong.com
“..Worries for the Workplace

Red LEDs are made from a toxic substance called aluminum gallium arsenide, or AGA. Not much information exists about adverse health impacts that workers who are exposed to these particles face, but increased use of AGA has raised concern regarding occupational exposure, says A.Tanaka, lead author for a study published in “Toxicology and Applied Pharmacology.” AGA, a semiconductor material, has been scientifically proven to be toxic to animals, however. Chronic and acute toxicity causes kidney, lung and reproductive organ problems in animals, Tanaka notes. Given that, Tanaka recommends paying much greater attention to human exposure to such semiconductor materials.

Consumer Concerns

LED lights have been criticized by people who are worried they’ll cause damage to the retina of your eye. Accumulation of cellular debris called lipofuscin in your retinal pigment epithelium is responsible for the damage. However, the amount of harm an LED lamp can cause depends on the built-in protection of the product, according to Dan Roberts, director of Macular Degeneration Support, a nonprofit organization based in Missouri. The bigger and brighter the illumination source, the more potential risk it has for your retina. Small white LEDs in lamps are unlikely to lead to many problems, Roberts says. Proximity and whether you take reasonable precautions are other factors. For example, the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection suggests that you should not look directly into a light box from up close for longer than a maximum of 100 seconds. LED are directional lights, meaning they don’t radiate light 360 degrees like CFLs do, notes the Environmental Protection Agency. Blue light waves are more likely to cause harm to the retina among people who are prone to macular issues due to aging, environment, genetics or health habits, Roberts says.

Can Small LED Lights Impact Your Health Negatively?
 John Staughton  2 years ago (4.12.18)
“..The Secret Risks of LED Lights

One of the main concerns with LED lights relates to red LED lights, one of the oldest varieties still on the market. Those red LEDs were made with a substance called AGA (aluminum gallium arsenide), which is toxic in concentrated amounts. If you are directly exposed to this material on work sights or through contact with broken bulbs, it can be hazardous to your health. Side effects of toxicity from AGA include respiratory, kidney, and reproductive issues in laboratory studies. The lead content in red LEDs is also toxic when directly exposed, and should be avoided.

At the other end of the scale, a French government report emphasizes the risks of LED lighting and makes various recommendations. ..

The last time you were bitten by a mosquito or stubbed your toe, you likely noticed some redness and swelling, plus maybe a little heat and itchiness. Those are all classic signs of inflammation, a part of your body’s natural response to infections and injuries. Thankfully, acute inflammation like this usually only lasts a few hours or a couple days…

But there are some lesser-known contributors to chronic inflammation, too—and you can do something about them. Below, 6 surprising causes, and how to reverse the effects.

1. Your extra pounds..

4. Your gut bacteria
A whopping 70% of your immune cells reside in your intestines, ..

We often hear how crucial omega is to our health, it is essential to comprehend that OMEGA 3 is vital for boosting wellness and lowering inflammation. Several folks do not know that Omega 6, usually discovered in food preparation oils is superior in linoleic acid and actually adds to persistent inflammation and wellness problems. The excellent proportion of Omega 6 to Omega 3 is 1:1, unfortunately, the ordinary person consumes a diet with a provision of 20:1.

It takes less eating to create a caloric surplus. Bulk on pasta, dried fruits, nuts, etc. Eat More Protein. Your muscles need protein to recover from your workouts and grow bigger. Eat a whole source of protein with each meal – meat, chicken, fish, eggs, etc Go Liquid. Blended food digests more easily than solid food.

They think they eat a lot but they don’t. Track your calorie intake to make sure you’re eating enough to gain weight. Lift Heavy. Stop wasting time with curls and flies. Do free weight, compounds like Squats and Deadlifts instead. They trigger more strength and muscle gains to gain weight. Be Consistent. If you eat a lot today but little the rest of the week, you won’t gain weight. You must consistently eat more than you burn to increase your body-weight.

Anything less you’ll always look skinny. Here’s a table with minimum goal weights for skinny guys, and maximum muscular weights.

Sal: 3-I take various whey protein powder supplements after each workout.

The 18 Best Healthy Foods to Gain Weight Fast healthline.com
“..Here are 18 of the best foods to help you gain weight or add muscle, the healthy way.

..2. Milk

Milk has been used as a weight gainer or muscle builder for decades (1).

It provides a good balance of proteins, carbs and fats and is a good source of calcium, as well as other vitamins and minerals (2).

For those trying to add more muscle, milk is an excellent protein source that provides both casein and whey proteins. Research has even shown it can help you add muscle when combined with weight lifting (3, 4).

Additionally, studies have found that milk, or whey and casein combined, can lead to greater mass gain than other protein sources (4, 5).

Try drinking around one or two glasses as a snack, with a meal, or before and after a workout if you are training…

6. Potatoes and Starches

Potatoes and other starchy foods are a very easy and cost-effective way to add in extra calories.

Try to choose one of these healthy sources of starchy carbs:

Quinoa
Oats
Corn
Buckwheat
Potatoes and sweet potatoes…

Sal: I fry these in olive oil almost after every upper body workkouts! It’s a great pre-snack while making /cooking supper!

” Squash
Winter root vegetables
Beans and legumes…

7. Salmon and Oily Fish

Like red meat, salmon and oily fish are excellent sources of protein and important healthy fats…

8. Protein Supplements

Taking protein supplements is a common strategy for athletes and bodybuilders who want to gain weight.

Whey protein supplements and mass gainers can be a very easy and cost-effective strategy to gain weight, especially when combined with strength training (18, 19).

Some people think whey protein is unhealthy or unnatural, but this isn’t the case. Whey protein is made from dairy and has been shown to improve markers of health and reduce disease risk (20, 21, 22).

It may be even more important if you’re also training since your daily protein requirements increase..
