It's All About Heart

Heart Disease

By Leslie Vandever

Where Survival Is The Question - Men Are The Weaker Sex

Survival

This article is written for two groups. Number one the women who need to be educated about the behavior of men in a crisis and two, the men, who are willing to change and go beyond the traditional self-destructive masculine behavior. Most men do not handle emotional problems well. Too often they desert their wives and girl friends in time of crisis. I know some husbands who drive their wives to our support groups and then sit in the parking lot waiting for them. They are chauffeurs and not soul mates. They have a great deal of difficulty sharing feelings and joining a team, which is something women do as a reflex in times of stress. Men are more likely to take a fight-or-flight approach. If they can’t fight it or fix it, they take off. Be prepared. You are not the problem. The problem is their discomfort, or their dis-ease with disease.

3 Answers To The “Why Me?” Question That’ll Soothe Your Soul

3 Answers to the “Why Me?” Question That’ll Soothe Your Soul

Oh it’s not easy, I know. Trying to figure it all out and still keep the faith that it’ll all be okay. I went through this myself for 8+ years so I completely get it (read my story here). I must have asked myself a million times that looming question: Why me? Why I wasn’t healing, why I couldn’t just take Vitamin B like the girl I met in the doctor’s office waiting room that told me it was her miracle cure, why meditate and make it all go away?

I’ve learned that for some of us it just doesn’t work that way.

The Universal Desire For Universal Health

You’d be hard-pressed these days, at least here in the U.S., to come up with a more divisive subject than universal health care, but probably just as hard-pressed to find a more universal desire than good health. Even if we can’t all agree on how it’s achieved, it’s still something we all want.

Is Your Autoimmune Or Immune Illness A Clue To Your Life Purpose?

Is your autoimmune or immune illness a clue to your life purpose?

Have you ever wondered whether your autoimmune or immune disorder is a form of internal guidance?  Could it be nudging you toward your life purpose?  Are you aware that those with autoimmune or immune illness may have a healing role of some kind, maybe focused on themselves, but often focused on tending to the wellness of other people, animals, or the natural world?  Important environmental and dietary factors are contributing to our current international epidemic of autoimmune and other immune illnesses, but those factors aren’t my focus here.  Instead, I want to offer you a window into how your immune system problems may be a form of internal guidance.
