Low back pain

Low back pain is one of the most common problems people have. About 60 – 80% of the adult U.S. population has low back pain, and it is the second most common reason people go to the doctor. Low back problems affect the spine’s flexibility, stability, and strength, which can cause pain, discomfort, and stiffness. Back pain is the leading cause of disability in Americans under 45 years old. Each year 13 million people go to the doctor for chronic back pain. The condition leaves about 2. http://www.virtualmedicalcentre.com/diseases.asp?did=815&title=Lower-Back-Pain

Lung cancer

Lung cancer is the most common cause of cancer death, not only in the United States, but also around the world. Lung cancer is responsible for an estimated 160,000 deaths in the United States annually. There are two major types: non-small cell lung cancer and small cell lung cancer, so named because of how the cells look under a microscope. Non-small cell lung cancer is more common, and it generally grows and spreads more slowly. There are three main types of non-small cell lung cancer, named for the type of cells in which the cancer develops: squamous cell carcinoma, adenocarcinoma, and large cell lung cancer. http://www.mydr.com.au/cancer-care/lung-cancer-what-you-need-to-know

Lymphoma

Lymphomas are cancers that develop in the lymphatic system – the tissues and organs that produce, store, and carry white blood cells. The lymphatic system includes the bone marrow, spleen, thymus, lymph nodes, and a network of thin tubes that carry lymph and white blood cells into all the tissues of the body. Types of lymphoma include non-Hodgkin’s, Hodgkin’s, and cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. In non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, the most common form of the disease, cells in the lymphatic system become abnormal. http://www.emedicinehealth.com/lymphoma/article_em.htm

Magnesium

Every organ in the body – especially the heart, muscles, and kidneys – needs the mineral magnesium. It also contributes to the makeup of teeth and bones. Most important, it activates enzymes, contributes to energy production, and helps regulate calcium levels as well as copper, zinc, potassium, vitamin D, and other important nutrients in the body. http://www.magnesium.com/w3/

Massage

Massage is a “hands-on” treatment in which a therapist manipulates muscles and other soft tissues of the body to improve health and well-being. Varieties of massage range from gentle stroking and kneading of muscles and other soft tissues to deeper manual techniques. Massage has been practiced as a healing therapy for centuries in nearly every culture around the world. It helps relieve muscle tension, reduce stress, and evoke feelings of calmness. http://www.naturaltherapypages.com.au/massage

Measles

Measles (rubeola) is a highly contagious respiratory infection. In fact, 90% of people exposed to measles will develop the disease, unless they are immune. Measles is caused by a virus and can be a serious or even fatal illness for young children. However, since vaccinations were introduced in 1963, measles has become rare in developed countries, including the United States. http://www.betterhealth.vic.gov.au/bhcv2/bhcarticles.nsf/pages/measles?open

Menstrual pain

Many women experience menstrual pain, especially when they are in the their teens. In most cases, menstrual pain does not indicate a more serious problem, although sometimes it can be associated with endometriosis or uterine fibroids (non-cancerous tumors in the uterus). The medical term for menstrual pain is primary dysmenorrhea. Primary dysmenorrhea usually starts 2 – 3 years after the first period, as a woman begins to ovulate regularly. Pain usually starts a day or two before menstrual flow, and may continue through the first 2 days the period. http://www.emedicinehealth.com/menstrual_pain/article_em.htm

Migraine headache

Migraines are severely painful, recurrent headaches that are sometimes accompanied by other symptoms such as visual disturbances (aura) or nausea. There are two types of migraine – migraine with aura (formerly called common migraines) and migraine without aura (formerly called classic migraines). If you have a migraine with aura, you may experience a visual disturbance (like seeing stars or zigzag lines or a temporary blind spot) about 30 minutes before the headache starts. http://www.headache.com.au/

Mind-body medicine

Mind-body medicine uses the power of thoughts and emotions to influence physical health. http://www.amfoundation.org/mindbodymed.htm

Miscarriage

Miscarriage is the spontaneous loss of a pregnancy before 20 weeks. Usually miscarriage happens because the fetus isn’t developing as it should. Miscarriage is common – about 15% of pregnancies end in miscarriage, usually before the 12th week of pregnancy (first trimester). Some miscarriages may happen even before a woman knows for certain that she is pregnant. But it can still be a traumatic emotional experience. Most women who have miscarriages go on to have successful later pregnancies – a second miscarriage generally occurs in only 1% of women. http://www.birth.com.au/Miscarriage/About-miscarriage-reasons

Motion sickness

Motion sickness can happen from any kind of movement – even movement that you’re anticipating. People tend to get motion sickness on a moving boat, train, airplane, car, or amusement park rides. Motion sickness usually stops as soon as the motion stops. Although motion sickness is fairly common and often only a minor nuisance, it may cause problems for people who travel frequently. Fortunately, the more you travel, the more you get used to the motion. You can also take precautions to reduce the chance of getting motion sickness. http://www.medicinenet.com/motion_sickness/article.htm

Multiple sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable disease of the nervous system that disrupts communication between the brain and other parts of the body. Its effects can range from relatively mild in most cases to somewhat disabling to devastating. http://www.betterhealth.vic.gov.au/bhcv2/bhcarticles.nsf/pages/Multiple_sclerosis_explained

Mumps

Swelling of the salivary glands in the face and jaw line Fever, chills, headache, loss of appetite, and a general feeling of discomfort Pain when chewing or swallowing Orchitis, or inflammation of the testicles (occurs in up to 25% of males who get the disease after they reach puberty) Symptoms usually start 14 – 24 days after infection with the virus. http://kidshealth.org/parent/general/sick/mumps.html

Muscular dystrophy

Muscular dystrophy (MD) is a group of genetic diseases involving progressive weakness and degeneration of the muscles that control movement. In some forms of MD, the heart muscles and other involuntary muscles, as well as other organs, are affected. http://www.healthinsite.gov.au/topics/Muscular_Dystrophy

Naturopathy

one is supporting the body’s own healing abilities, and the other is empowering people to make lifestyle changes necessary for the best possible health. http://www.mydr.com.au/complementary-medicine/naturopathy

Nutrition

What is clinical nutrition? Clinical nutrition is the study of the relationship between food and a healthy body. More specifically, it is the science of nutrients and how they are digested, absorbed, transported, metabolized, stored, and eliminated by the body. http://www.nutritionaustralia.org/

Obesity

Obesity is an epidemic in the United States with 35.1% of adults in America classified as obese. Being overweight or obese puts you at risk for a number of diseases, including heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer, stroke, gallbladder disease, osteoarthritis, and respiratory disorders. http://www.betterhealth.vic.gov.au/bhcv2/bhcarticles.nsf/pages/Obesity

Omega-3 fatty acids

Omega-3 fatty acids are considered essential fatty acids: They are necessary for human health but the body can’t make them – you have to get them through food. Omega-3 fatty acids can be found in fish, such as salmon, tuna, and halibut, other seafood including algae and krill, some plants, and nut oils. Also known as polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), omega-3 fatty acids play a crucial role in brain function as well as normal growth and development. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/druginfo/natural/993.html

Omega-6 fatty acids

Omega-6 fatty acids are considered essential fatty acids: They are necessary for human health but the body can’t make them – you have to get them through food. Along with omega-3 fatty acids, omega-6 fatty acids play a crucial role in brain function as well as normal growth and development. http://www.umm.edu/altmed/articles/omega-6-000317.htm

Osteopathy

Osteopathy, or osteopathic medicine, is based on the belief that most diseases are related to problems in the musculoskeletal system and that structure and function of the body are related. The musculoskeletal system is made of the nerves, muscles, and bones -all of which are interconnected and form the body’s structure. http://www.naturaltherapypages.com.au/structural/Osteopathy

Pancreatitis

Pancreatitis is inflammation of the pancreas, an organ that produces several enzymes to aid in the digestion of food, as well as the hormone insulin, which controls the level of sugar (glucose) in the blood. The pancreas is located in the upper abdomen, behind the stomach. When the pancreas is inflamed, the body is not able to absorb all the nutrients it needs. Pancreatitis may be either acute (sudden and severe) or chronic. Both types of pancreatitis can cause bleeding and tissue death in or around the pancreas. http://www.medicinenet.com/pancreatitis/article.htm

Parkinson’s disease

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive disorder of the central nervous system, meaning symptoms get worse over time. Its symptoms – tremors (often starting in one hand), slowed movement, rigidity – are caused when nerve cells in the brain that produce a chemical called dopamine start to break down and die. http://www.ninds.nih.gov/disorders/parkinsons_disease/parkinsons_disease.htm

Peppermint

Peppermint ( Mentha piperita) , a popular flavoring for gum, toothpaste, and tea, is also used to soothe an upset stomach or to aid in digestion. Because it has a calming and numbing effect, it has been used to treat headaches, skin irritations, anxiety associated with depression, nausea, diarrhea, menstrual cramps, and flatulence. It is also an ingredient in chest rubs, used to treat symptoms of the common cold. http://www.umm.edu/altmed/articles/peppermint-000269.htm

Sexual Abuse Resources

Child Abuse and Neglect – Understanding the reasons why adults hurt children and what can be done to intervene can help protect children from the consequences of abuse or neglect.

Child Abuse: Statistics, Research, and Resources – Dr. Jim Hopper’s comprehensive page on the prevalence and significance of child abuse.

Children’s Exposure to Violence: A Comprehensive National Survey (pdf) – Children are exposed to violence every day in their homes, schools, and communities. They may be struck by a boyfriend, bullied by a classmate, or abused by an adult. They may witness an assault on a parent or a shooting on the street. Such exposure can cause significant physical, mental, and emotional harm with long-term effects that can last well into adulthood.

Definitions of Child Abuse and Neglect  –  State-by-State information on the conduct, acts, and omissions that constitute reportable child abuse or neglect.

Mothers and Children: Understanding the Links Between Woman Battering and Child Abuse – The studies reviewed here suggest that in 32% to 53% of all families where women are being beaten their children are also the victims of abuse by the same perpetrator.  Children who witness domestic violence also suffer social and mental health problems as a result.

The Political Consequences of Child Abuse – Alice Miller tells us that people subjected to mistreatment in childhood may go on insisting all their lives that beatings are harmless and corporal punishment is salutary although there is overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

Recognizing and identifying patterns caused by abuse – The process of moving beyond your abuse involves an exchange.  You will need to exchange the lies that abuse taught you about yourself, the world and God, for truth.

Teen Victims Statistics – From the National Center for Victims of Crime.

Violence Against Children Worldwide – In every region of the world, in almost every aspect of their lives, children are subject to unconscionable violence, most often perpetrated by the very individuals charged with their safety and well-being.

What Are YOU Going to Do About Child Abuse – The hard, cold truth is that the protection of children has never been a political priority.
