If a fellow isn't thankful for what he's got, he isn't likely to be thankful for what he's going to get.

The Pilgrims made seven times more graves than huts. No Americans have been more impoverished than these who, nevertheless, set aside a day of thanksgiving.

Dr. Robert Herron, author of the new study
Over 5 years, the TM groups’s physician expenses decreased by 28%

Study Shows Medical Costs Decrease 28 Percent Over Five-Year Period
Former faculty researcher Robert Herron published a new study in the current issue of The American Journal of Health Promotion. His study found that people with consistently high health care costs experienced a 28 percent cumulative decrease in physician fees after an average of five years’ practice of the Transcendental Meditation® technique compared with their baseline.
“This article has major policy significance for saving Medicare and Medicaid without cutting benefits or raising taxes,” Dr. Herron said. “Now it may be possible to rescue Medicare and Medicaid by adding coverage for learning the Transcendental Meditation technique.”
Dr. Herron compared the changes in physician costs for 142 Transcendental Meditation practitioners with 142 non-practitioners over five years in Quebec, Canada. The subjects in the control group were selected to match the profiles of the Transcendental Meditation technique group according to age, sex, and region. Data was provided by the Quebec Health Insurance Agency, the only health insurance provider in the province of Quebec.
“This study addresses an important issue that will be of interest to our readers,” said Michael P. O’Donnell, Ph.D., Editor-in-Chief of the American Journal of Health Promotion. “The manuscript is well organized and clearly written.”
This study’s findings were similar to earlier ones. In a previous Canadian study, the medical expenses of the Transcendental Meditation technique group were 5 to 13 percent lower than controls each year for six consecutive years.
In addition, in a sample of American health insurance enrollees, the Transcendental Meditation technique participants had reduced rates of illness in all disease categories. An 11-year study found that subjects age 45 and over who practiced the Transcendental Meditation technique had 88 percent fewer hospital days compared with the control group. Their medical expenditures were 60 percent below the norm.
Dr. Herron is the Director of the Center for Health Systems Analysis in Fairfield, Iowa and author of New Knowledge for New Results: A Comprehensive Strategy for Reducing Skyrocketing Medical Costs. Dr. Herron was the first to describe the impact of the Transcendental Meditation technique on health care costs as a PhD student at MUM. As an independent researcher and consultant, he has conducted extensive research on how to improve medical system effectiveness and reduce national and corporate medical expenditures.

Recent research from the University of Wisconsin suggests that simply hearing Mom’s voice at the end of the line can boost a child’s levels of oxytocin, a bonding hormone that helps reduce stress.
A 14-year study by the University of California, San Diego, found that when it comes to longevity, the sweet spot is between five and six and a half hours each night—any more or less could shave time off your life. Scientists say the results should allay anxiety for women who fear they aren’t getting enough zzz’s.
Thank God, with my schedule nowadays, it's good to know 5-6 hours of night sleep is enough. The question is, what good is 5-6 hrs of sleep when I'm awake the whole night and finally get to sleep at 4, 5, 6 in the morning?
Skinny jeans are often to blame for Tingling Thigh Syndrome, a temporary condition that occurs when the nerve running across the outside of your thigh becomes compressed, causing your leg to feel as if it’s gone to sleep, says Dr. Gary Gronseth, chief of neurology inpatient service at the University of Kansas Hospital.

Looking back now, grown-up, more health conscious, vegetarian... how cruel were those who cut off sharks just for their fins! And they still do it today. Shame!! Me included! All I could think of then was that I must be rich to be able to rub shoulders with the so-called, Manila Socialites! Birds of the same feather flock together, right! Riight.
I hear Ya! I just have to figure out and have a clearer picture. I'll get there... Thank you, Lord.
