Not Perfect, But All Right

2014 has not been kind.

On a cold, snowy day in January, when my husband was in Tokyo, my 10 year old son received a lifelong sentence. It began with a sick visit to the pediatrician followed by another sick visit to a gastroenterologist. As I sat across from this woman, who I disliked as soon as she entered the room, I could not imagine that my son’s world was going to permanently change. After a brief examination and a denial of all symptoms from which she was sure he was suffering, she stoically pronounced “he has Crohn’s,” which only made me hate her more than I already did. She prescribed antibiotics and advised that he would need to be examined under general anesthesia.

That night, my son slept in my bed. I spent most of the night feeling his forehead, making sure he was still asleep, plotting the death of…

Sexphonia (sexophonia) – an interview –

Sexophonia

Interviewer: Hallo, everybody! Welcome to this episode of “medical views”. Today, we would like to run a conversation about “sexophonia” with the person who coined it. Mr. Physician 21, welcome to our program!

Physician 21: Thank you very much. I am so glad to be here today.

Interviewer: Before discussing your view about sexophonia, let’s start with two questions that seem relevant to this topic: who are you and what is your medical philosophy?

Physician 21: I am a physician by learning and training and interested in languages, cooking and sports. About my medical philosophy, I would say I am a rational and logical person and respect the different medical schools because, in my opinion, they complete one another.

Interviewer: Will you try to present your idea about sexophonia as for the meaning and the resonance?

Physician 21: Well. The idea is about the working and interaction of environment, people and individual (ecology, society and physiology). In my present view, the very variable crosstalk between the individual and the surroundings including people is the factor that would influence one’s health and productivity. In this process, the words sex and creativity may be greatly interchangeable as they may have common routes and paths. Accordingly, I wish that my idea is not seen as one more theory of physical sex centrality but rather a concept that intermingles physical sex and life willingness in one homogenous and consolidated continuum.

Interviewer: I may have got the concept. However, how would you defy the apparent high sexuality-orientation in your idea, for example, if you would agree that a pleasant thing could be described as sexophonic?

Physician 21: Well. Here can be a great deal of misunderstanding and confusion, because the implementation of sexual-orientation should not include undetermined or irresponsible views or talks about sexuality. The latter is being essentially private and personally defined.

Interviewer: Okay. You mean that the abstractive generalization of life willingness under sexophonia does not necessarily mean the demolition of the sensitivity and privacy of the sexuality as a scientific and ethical topic.

Physician 21: That’s it, thank you.

Interviewer: And what about the name?

Physician 21: The name includes the suffix “phonia” which means acoustic. This would be a suitable vehicle for the meaning, because the hearing may be the most important among all the human senses. For example, through the hearing we perceive the tunes and convey the feelings.

Interviewer: Tell us a few examples of the echoes of your view.

Physician 21: Well. The concept of sexophonia may be very relevant in managing diseases. This can be explained as social maneuvers, environmental modifications, learning motivation, etc. The physician should pay attention to such elements that can greatly influence the individual’s willingness to life as quite serious as to common medicines and regimens.

Interviewer: Thank you so much for this interesting information.

Physician 21: Thank you too.

The kitchen – an intro

For me the kitchen was and is still a sign of luxury and richness. That is the concerned place where an elegant oven and large granite bench with wood cupboard and many machines and cooking tools and equipments. This would be a typical kitchen as the word would mean.  Although not everybody may be warranted such opportunity, the fondness of cooking and making healthy and good recipes seems to be inherent to some people regardless their financial and socioeconomic level. Cooking is an art, talent and science. The most noticeable reason why some people cook well, in my opinion, is that they really like it. These people are greatly good-spirited, generous and kind.

Being a science the cooking relies on the philosophy of promoting health on both spiritual and bodily levels. The eye eats, and so does the nose. It is not surprising to notice that the healthy food fulfills three basic criteria, a good shape, a good smell and a good taste. Accordingly, the food must comply with the current needs of the individual as whether to maintain good energy supply, exceptionally higher vitamins or to help overcome some illness. Indeed, such awareness of the healthy food and the diet manipulations that suit the different health and disease conditions should make a very valued difference in leading a happy and successful life. The term lifestyle is becoming more and more familiar and implies the impact of the usual life activities such as food, movement and free time on one’s health and happiness. In the past when people used to eat almost raw and little processed food and when they worked almost manually from the dawn to the sunset, they enjoyed much healthier and maybe also lengthier lives.

That is why deciding to cook and make food is a quite serious thing. It is even not less serious than conducting an experiment in the laboratory; kitchen safety, strict cleaning, cooking bench, work plan, time monitor, good observation, assessing results, feedback and continuous refinement. The question is not that one would be a professional cook but more to consider healthy food to maintain health and help overcome illness and as a means of fun for those who like doing it by themselves.

Tip: Cook only when you have the sufficient energy all through the whole job and of course when you have the good mood for cooking.

Bugs And Fibromyalgia

“What we eat, what we think, and what we do impacts our health, but so does our environment. “

MollieSong

You know that feeling after doing something physically demanding, when you are so exhausted that you can barely move? Your muscles are sore, even tender. You may even have a headache from being over-tired, and you may have trouble sleeping, even though that’s all you want to do. Imagine feeling this way for weeks and months at a time. That’s pretty much how I felt around the time I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, around 17 years ago.

sleeper

Millions of people in developed countries are now experiencing auto-immune disorders in record numbers. Recent reports indicate that around 5 million Americans may have fibromyalgia, an auto-immune condition that is characterized by muscle pain, fatigue, and “tender points” at the base of the neck, back and several particular places. When I saw the endocrinologist, I was told that the best thing I could do was to rest a lot and take a prescription…
