Unless you’ve been holed up in a cabin in the Siberian outback, it’s been hard to miss the avalanche of research and associated press coverage ballyhooing the connection between microbes and human health and disease in 2013 – and 2014 will be no different, as fecal transplants become the new black!

Going Feral: my one-year journey to acquire the healthiest gut microbiome in the world (you heard me!)

Name just about any ailment plaguing humanity and you will find some researcher, somewhere, working the microbial angle for a causal or correlative connection. More federal funding please! But reading between the lines of the near breathless and optimistic reporting on the human microbiome, sits a sobering fact: scientists know very little about the connection between disease and the potential microbial culprits (these are early days).

Science is hard and the human gut is a vast and diverse ecosystem. As with any ecosystem, it’s the community as a whole that’s likely more important, not single members per se. That said, projects like American Gut (think about joining the project!)

Rethinking the Placebo Effect: How Our Minds Actually Affect Our Bodies

In 2013, Neil deGrasse Tyson hosted a mind-bending debate on the nature of “nothing” — an inquiry that has occupied thinkers since the dawn of recorded thought and permeates everything from Hamlet’s iconic question to the boldest frontiers of quantum physics. That’s precisely what New Scientist editor-in-chief Jeremy Webb explores with a kaleidoscopic lens in Nothing: Surprising Insights Everywhere from Zero to Oblivion (public library | IndieBound) — a terrific collection of essays and articles exploring everything from vacuum to the birth and death of the universe to how the concept of zero gained wide acceptance in the 17th century after being shunned as a dangerous innovation for 400 years.

As Webb elegantly puts it, “nothing becomes a lens through which we can explore the universe around us and even what it is to be human. It reveals past attitudes and present thinking.” Donating = Loving. The Richard and Hinda Rosenthal Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine - Home Page.

Obamacare Explained: A Guide for Californians

Health insurance companies were generally not required to cover specific areas of care. If you had an illness, the health plan might have charged you a very high premium to get the care you wanted, perhaps more than you could afford. Or you might have found an affordable plan, but the company would not have covered the care you needed. For example, the company might have excluded specific illnesses based on your health history. What Changes With the Health Law? A doctor is humbled about chronic pain. We recently spoke with Marta Meyers, MD, FACP, who works as an internist in a group practice in New Jersey.

“I unfortunately became a patient when I was 52-years-old,” she told us, “and I was diagnosed with breast cancer, a disease I had always feared I would get.” Dr. Meyers was found to have multifocal disease and underwent a right mastectomy and lymph node dissection. “Ever since I had seen mastectomies when I was in training, I dreaded ever having to get one,” she said.

HIGH-INTENSITY CIRCUIT TRAINING USING BODY WEIGHT: Maximum R... : ACSM's Health & Fitness Journal

These men and women face incessant demands on their time, along with the pressure to perform at high levels and balance their careers and personal lives. From our work with elite performers, we have learned that managing energy is the key to sustaining high performance. However, when facing seemingly infinite demands, one’s ability to manage and expand physical energy can be severely compromised. This can result in persistent fatigue (physical, but also emotional and mental) and a growing level of disengagement with one’s career, family, friends, and personal well-being, which can ultimately lead to performance failure. Traditionally, resistance training often is performed separately from aerobic training — typically on two or three nonconsecutive days each week.
