Family members caring for a service-disabled Veteran may also be eligible for career assistance, job training, and other services. 

Education, Training, and Veterans Nutrition

Getting proper nutrition is one of the best ways to get in good health and stay that way before and after you decide to go back to school, or any type of training.  However, many people do not know what proper nutrition is.  In the following article, you are going to be provided with brief advice that will get you on the road to good health via proper nutrition.

Eat your vegetables and your children will too.  Children like to be like mom and dad which means that eating vegetables with meals, and more importantly as snacks, sets a standard with your children.  The most important part of most foods you buy in the grocery store is the label on the back.  Take the time to read the nutritional values on the packages before you buy, as this helps to ensure that you are making the right choice for yourself and the ones you love.  Try adding more plants to your daily diet.  These are versatile enough to go anywhere from a salad to a soup to a stew to even a smoothie. Try eating green things like lettuce, spinach, broccoli, asparagus and more to get a vast array of nutrients.  Also, add things like fruits and nuts for a huge boost to prevent cancer.

Make sure you and your kids are not learning their health education and facts about food from food ads on television or otherwise.  Make sure that you get what you need with a healthy diet rich in produce and lean meats and dairies.  Nutrition can make the difference between you having good or bad health before your continued education or training.  If you use the advice that this article has provided, you will be able to begin the path to proper nutrition and be in the greatest health shape you have ever been in!  Good luck with your dreams.

What is Natural Health Medicine?

Written by Onaolapo Adeyemi. Posted in Health, Mental health, Nutrition and Supplements

Natural health medicine with eye movement desensitization and reprocessing – The past century has seen the field of conventional medicine grow and dominate world health care, though the time was worn and tested practices of natural health medicine have far from become obsolete, rather many choose to use it as alternative treatment when conventional procedures are ineffective or prove to be too invasive.

natural_herbal_medicinePeople are still looking for natural health medicine to cure PTSD, trauma, and a few other mental problems. I remember when I traveled to Africa last summer, I attended a herbalist conference where such things were discussed. A herbalist in Africa is regarded as the one who’s been giving great knowledge of how to use herbs and leaves. A tradition that has been passed down from generations to generations.

Natural health medicine is also known as Naturopathic medicine, or naturopathy, and includes many fields from all over the world, including herbalism, acupuncture, aromatherapy, homeopathy, hydrotherapy etc. The treatment concentrates on a holistic approach, where the mental well-being of a patient is treated along with his physical problems. The founder of Naturopathy is believed to be Hippocrates, the Greek Physician, who promoted the use of herbs, ironically Hippocrates is also considered as the Father of conventional medicine. Though with the variety of fields that Naturopathic medicine covers, one is left in doubt as to the true founder, as for each field there was a different one.

In the modern day, natural health medicine has had a hard time competing with the success of conventional medical practices. Yet due to its long-standing roots in many cultures, for example, homeopathy in India and acupuncture in China, naturopathy has managed to last through the depression period and is once again becoming the preferred method of treatment among numerous patients. With the opening of a proper, 4-year Naturopathy degree college in Portland, the reputation of naturopathy is gradually being restored.

Given the various backgrounds of Naturopathy and considering the different cultures from which it originates, it is also very common to find that different courses of treatment will be suggested depending on the country in which one is receiving treatment, for example, Naturopathy treatments in India emphasize vegetarianism and even yoga. Due to its long history and strong cultural foothold, a day without Naturopathy looks unlikely, and even though the past century has seen a decline in its uses, recent interest suggests that Naturopathy could once again become a well-respected course of treatment.

Natural health medicine has become a great debate as to whether some parts of the third world countries want to embrace the modern medicine, or maybe just simply stay with their herbs and roots. As a free thinker, I believe there is nothing wrong in practicing both. It all boils down to healing and curing the sick.
