Prevention Not Prescriptions: Tuesday, December 8

December 8th, 2009


Prevention Not Prescriptions

Welcome back to Prevention Not Prescriptions Tuesday. This is a weekly forum where we’re coming together to inform and inspire each other to better health.

It’s straight forward and simple. Tuesdays will be our chance to take our health into our own hands and say “hell no” to the pharmaceutical industry’s endless search for profits. Sound like something you want to be involved with?  Here are the details on how to participate each week.

Once again, a big thank you to all of the contributors below who got involved this week.  This edition of Prevention Not Prescriptions has everything from the low down on what’s in the H1N1 vaccine to the must-have health products you’d want if you were stranded on a deserted island (or at the very least in your cabinet at home). Enjoy!

And we’re starting things off this week with one of the most intriguing interviews we’ve had on the show…

Kicking cancer’s butt with natural remedies


MSG in your H1N1 vaccine?

Do you promise to obey?

Food, Diet & Nutrition

Can we trust the food industry?

Stepping stones

And your post is next…

    Thanks for putting this week’s PNP together. I’ve got a lot of reading to do now! Luckily it’s a windy, snowy day here so it’s the perfect time to get informed through all these wonderful writers!

  2. While diabetes can be a devastating illness, it is very preventable with 3 lifestyle changes. It is possible to change the way your body responds to your genetics so see my blog for info on how to prevent diabetes.

  3. We almost didn’t have a PNP this week! Big snow storm rolled through my area yesterday and left me without power or internet for the whole day. Luckily it all worked out. So hunker down and enjoy the reading. I’ll be doing the same! In fact, I almost feel like i’m on a deserted island…

  4. A big thanks to Cari for coordinating this weeks PNP with no power and lots of snow.
    Glad to see the diabetes posts. This disease kills me because it’s within our power as individuals and parents to put an end to it. When I see parents buying their overweight kids soda and chips and candy at convenience stores and restaurants, I’m in shock. They are setting the children they love up for a lifetime of health and personal problems. We need to tap into that protective mama and papa bear in all of us…
    Here’s a diabetes monologue I did on the show a few weeks ago:

  5. My post this week is an article I wrote a year or so ago about how the food industry likes to jump on the health-claim bandwagon and market not-so-good-for-you foods as being good for you!

  6. Thank you for the opportunity to share nutritional secrets not taught or made known for common interests in maintaining youth, strength and health. Not only is this beneficial for athletes, but benefits anyone who lives and breathes. Natural foods with escential vitamins, minerals and natural spices are the building blocks for body cell replacement fueled by oxidation which is a continuous, on-going process for sustained life. One body of life is all we get, investigate more and take charge of your quality of life.

    Loved the healthcare update with Wendell Potter, thanks for posting it.
    We’re getting the big snow tonight so looks like I’ll have plenty of time for reading all the other good articles!

  8. Thanks for pulling this off today, Cari. Stay warm and bright!
    I wanted to give a special mention with my post today, “Stepping Stones”, to folks like my dear friend Moku-wai, who manage to pick themselves up from an injury, illness, any type of setback for that matter, and come back healthier and stronger.
    They make Prevention look easy.

  9. Another great week of posts everyone. Thank You!
    I was interviewed for “Women’s Health” magazine yesterday about
    “Infidelity in the Workplace”. I have been getting lots of calls about
    how to “Affair Proof Relationships” too. Big topic with lots of complexities.
    In the meantime, appreciate the one you are with. Do not take each other for granted. Invest in your relationship. Let your loved ones know how much you love, value and appreciate them…Prevention!

  10. Smoking hot topic for “Women’s Health”! I think you need to cover a few of those pointers when you’re on the air with me…
    It would be a great follow up to the show with Dr. Robin Smith last week.

  11. I love people like that. I struggle with someone close to me who is the opposite. Challenging.

  12. Karen, your post was an excellent 1-2 punch with the cheeky article “The 6 Weirdest, Scariest Processed Foods”
    I think this food stuff is the biggest part of the health equation…

    Loved this weeks topics! Of course, “I want to be French” is near and dear to my heart.
    I also loved “Do you obey” because listening to your body is so important. When I weighed 70+ lbs more than I do now, I couldn’t connect to my body at all. That was a big part of my own journey towards health. Now, it’s a major component of my work with weight loss clients. I love it when a client begins to recognize the body signals that say “stop eating.” So easy. So natural. So forever available.
