Dynamic Health Dr. Norman Rosenthal
Dr. Rosenthal mentions some interesting insights as to what can help an individual have better health.
This is the second interview in the book, Dynamic health with the
interviewer David E. Wright. Dr. Rosenthal is an expert in Seasonal
Affective Disorder, and pioneered the use of lamps in its treatment. He
is also a research doctor. He also pioneered the use of St. John’s
Wort for depression. He contributes these comments with regards to
personal health. “I believe that we need to keep our intellectual mind,
our emotional mind, and our body in line. These are the three domains
we need to take care of. If we take care of all those we have the best
chance, not only of leading long lives, but of leading good and healthy
ones as well.” He follows up listing some things he is going to do
himself for his health. These include Yoga which emphasizes relaxation
and stretching. He also talks of emotional peace, and the importance of
keeping connected to people who are important to us. “I think you
should ‘mend you fences.’” “I think it’s so unhealthy to carry anger
and negative feelings about with you if you don’t have to.” He finally
adds “love and adventure” as keys to healthy life. We all need to have
goals, and things we are striving for.
Health Is Vital
Health is taken for granted, until you can't any more. In this blog I hope to put down on paper some of the articles I come across and want to remember, about health. I will be personalizing these articles to apply to me. I am diabetic, over weight, have high blood pressure and tinnitus, so these are the things you will find here. I will include nutrition, exercise, and holistic health, and many other ideas. I work in the health profession, particularly mental health, and have an interest in suicide prevention; so these topics will also be covered in this blog. Please, if you are suffering reach out.
