Why do we get sick? How do we get well? How do we avoid getting sick again? These pages attempt to answer these fundamental questions in Health and Healing, but the real joy of the book isn’t in learning the answers, but in following the method down the path to an answer. Looking at options such as homeopathy, a treatment that, to an outsider, seems more like a leap of faith than an actual system of healing. Conventional medicine is great at handling trauma and sudden, life-threatening conditions like heart attacks, but it’s less good at dealing with chronic conditions like arthritis. These pages will show you how to go beyond conventional medicine and empower you to take healing into your own hands today.

Having diabetes can change to life of person entirely. From the way one chooses the foods that he will eat to the way he lives his daily life, everything will change. For someone who doesn’t know much about diabetes there are a lot of webs sites, magazines, and books that can help you understand better of the nature of diabetes.
The greatest problem for diabetics is not being able to access medication when emergency situations occur. That is why, it is important to always have an emergency kit at hand. To keep the medicines from expiring, use them from time to time and replace them with new refills. The emergency kit can include cold medications, antacids, cough syrup, test strips and insulin with syringes if you use one and blood glucose monitoring supplies. If you will purchase over the counter medicines, make sure to read the label before using it. If there is a warning that diabetic people should consult their doctor before using the product, then do so. If you have these emergency kits at home, try to also have it at work or at school.
It is also essential to include in the emergency kit your medical history, prescription medications and emergency contacts. To keep them from getting wet, keep them in a water proof bags. If you are using insulin keep extra syringes, glucagons emergency kit and urine ketone strips. A glucagon emergency kit consists of a syringe filled with liquid which must be mixed with a powder. This kit is only used in case of a Severe Hypoglycemic Emergency. Try also to keep the insulin in a cool place as much as possible to keep it from being damaged.
