health links and resources!-Part 1

Here is a collection of health and wellness related links, and resources, which I could find useful. I have tried to avoid the sites with commercial purposes but sometimes I have enlisted them, as they also provide professional's tips. I hope this series would be helpful for all. And I appreciate if my readers could share in suggesting more resources in this regard.

1- A. R. E Clinic
Introduction: The A.R.E. Clinic is a nonprofit medical organization that researches, educates, and provides charitable services.

Source of A.R.E clinic's information: American psychic or seer known as Edgar Cayce
Edgar Cayce is commonly credited with being the "father of holistic medicine in America" for his early work in connecting the attitudes of the mind and the choices of the soul to the health of the physical body.

The intention of the A.R.E. Clinic: To use the full scope of the remedies and philosophy presented in the Cayce readings for the purpose of healing. Other forms of medicine that have a compatible philosophy are represented at our facility as well, such as naturopathy, acupuncture, and homeopathy.

How effective A.R.E clinic's research would be for common person, can be analyzed by reading their some of the articles which are experience based.

I quote one of the testimonials:

Castor Oil and Peanut Oil for Arthritis of the Knee!

After 25 years of knee pain & swelling, with surgery seeming to be the only option, I decided to try a Cayce remedy I had just learned of: castor oil. I applied nightly adding heat for 1 hr. After 5 applications my knee had seen dramatic shrinkage (about 35%). An additional 5 day application did little to further reduce swelling or decrease pain…so I switched to peanut oil which Cayce often recommended for bone issues.

"Again, within 5 days I saw miraculous results, my pain lessened & my flexibility increased remarkably. Six months later, I have not had recurancy. Arthritis free…Yippee!”

2-World Health organization:

Many of us know this name, but before browsing the site, I was aslo unaware that this site can be a source of many useful informations.

About WHO: WHO is the directing and coordinating authority for health within the United Nations system. It is responsible for providing leadership on global health matters, shaping the health research agenda, setting norms and standards, articulating evidence-based policy options, providing technical support to countries and monitoring and assessing health trends.

At the site when you click the link "Health topics" you are taken to a page with alphabetical list with names and to any topic there is another page with resources,links, sites etc.

Page about "programmes and projects"lists WHO programmes, partnerships and other projects in alphabetical order. For specific information about public health subjects (including diseases), refer to the health topics index.

There is a lot to get from the site.

3-Medicine Net.com

Their motto is " We bring doctor's knowledge to you"

Established in 1996, MedicineNet.com is an online, healthcare media publishing company. It provides easy-to-read, in-depth, authoritative medical information for consumers via interactive web site.

MedicineNet.com is the Internet's comprehensive source for people who want to research a variety of medical and health subjects.

Readers receive high quality information specific to their circumstances. They can interact. They can ask different questions and take the conversation in the direction they choose. A visit to MedicineNet.com can't replace a one-on-one consultation. However, it can help make people better informed about the health and medical issues facing them. It is this knowledge that empowers them to make better decisions.

MedicineNet.com's Role as Educator:
"An integral role of the doctor caregiver is one of educator....teaching patients and family members about their bodies, health, and illness as well as complications, prognosis, and potential side effects of therapies is a characteristic of being a doctor... without question MedicineNet.com allows patients and families to acquire higher levels of knowledge about these health concerns, each at their own pace...this affords patient understanding, comfort about decision-making processes, and satisfaction about self-empowerment related to their own, friends' and family members' health."
