Will Co Q10 help with Parkinson’s?

Tuesday, May 29th, 2007

Coenzym q10 (Co Q10) show great promise as a helpful and powerful antioxidant. Studies show that it could be beneficial for people with heart failure. It is also believed to help with individuals with Parkinson’s disease. While some small studies have shown promise with early stage parkinson’s, a recent study shows treatment with the antioxidant coenzyme Q10 does not improve symptoms in patients with mid-stage Parkinson’s disease.

Learning from children how to handle illness

Wednesday, May 9th, 2007

The next time you are feeling down about your current physical condition, whether it is a serious illness, being over weight or just feeling sorry for yourself, take a look at a child’s approach. I have recently had the unfortunate experience of watching parents being told their child had cancer. While the parents were totally overwhelmed and upset, the child handled the situation very differently. Instead of dwelling on the potential problems such as the possibility of death, losing his hair, not being able to play with friends, not going to the beach over the summer and having to drop off his sports teams, he simply accepted the situation and moved on. His spirits were never down and he looked forward to getting chemotherapy treatments in order to make him better.

While it could be argued that the child does not understand the true potential of his affliction, I think that the child’s outlook overall is what should be focused on. Staying positive, looking forward to getting better, making the most of each day and enjoying quality time spent with family and friends are qualities that we can all learn from. You really only have two choices, accept your situation and deal with it as positively as possible, or have the “why me” attitude and feel sorry for yourself. Either way, the illness or problem is still going to be there. The choice is up to you. why not take the child’s approach and make the most of whatever your situation is.
