Despite growing scientific evidence and public concern, toxic chemicals remain on the market and are commonly found in our homes, workplaces, everyday products, food and bodies. The federal law regulating chemicals in products, the Toxic Substances Control Act of 1976, is outdated and badly in need of an upgrade. In fact, of the over 80,000 chemicals in commerce, only about 200 have been adequately screened for their safety. Only five have been banned by the federal government, and none since 1990. And those chemicals don't stay put. They come off on our hands, get into household dust, are found in indoor air, and end up in our bodies, where they can contribute to health problems.
So, we find ourselves in a situation where many of the products on which we have come to rely are made with chemicals that could harm our health. Yet people broadly assume that if a product is for sale on a store shelf, it has been stringently examined for safety. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Providing premium pet care doesn’t mean serving Fido or Fluffy a feast on fancy china. In fact, taking good care of your pet is a lot like taking good care of yourself — it’s best done with the help of a like-minded healthcare practitioner and natural, healthful everyday choices.
Your pet’s needs are very individual, so finding a good veterinarian is an important step. In addition to a full physical every year (more often for younger pets or those with special needs), you’ll want to talk with the vet about vaccinations and other preventative measures, food and supplement choices and grooming. You may also want to explore homeopathy, herbal remedies, and other holistic care options.

January is here... the holiday time is over, and the winter stillness has a chance to reach us. There is something about a new year that holds a sense of possibility. More than any other time of year, we pause. In our culture of overdoing, this pause can be very significant. It can be a time of small new beginnings or a moment when the seed of something bigger takes hold. Often it is a time when we turn our attention to something about our health. Maybe we simply see that making a promise to exercise regularly needs to be part of our new year or perhaps something more challenging needs our attention. Health can always be a place to strive toward. Illness, whether it be a winter cold or something more chronic and troublesome, offers an opportunity to pay attention and look at how we live our lives in a new way. Homeopathy is a healing modality that can treat acute illnesses like colds and flu and help us to address the far deeper issues of where chronic illness begins.

You know, if I listened to Michael Dukakis long enough, I would be convinced we're in an economic downturn and people are homeless and going without food and medical attention and that we've got to do something about the unemployed.
