Question by ML: 48 laws of power is that good book for self improvement?

Best answer:

Answer by vince19121
YES it’s a great book if your into manipulating people . Some rules should just be common sense . Some good rules to follow : Despise the Free Lunch , Think as you like but Behave like others , Never appear Perfect , Do Not Commit to Anyone , and my favorite Keep Others in Suspended Terror: Cultivate an Air of Unpredictability . So many things you will learn . But not that great for self-improvement , for that you have to know & study your own decisions

Question by : Is detox diet good for health?
Is detox diet good for health???

Best answer:

Answer by ClickMaster
No. Detox diets and cleanses don’t work. There is no diet which will cause your body to get rid of toxins, heavy metals, poisonous by-products from smoking, drugs, etc. And cleanses for the purpose of weight loss don’t work because they can only eliminate water and small amounts of waste which the body will replace very quickly.

The problem with the internet is it is difficult to know what websites to trust. Especially in diet and fitness where there is no good proof and the US federal law tolerates all sorts of scams (eg: DHSEA1998), it is easy to be misled, scammed, and bilked. The way search engines work is to show you the most popular websites at the top and the least popular at the bottom…often buried in an mess of thousands of hits. And, popular does not mean good or true. It often means fad or trendy or mediocre or memetic or myth. And, is asking a bunch of strangers in YA really a good way to get information? Well, there are some excellent websites you CAN trust. They usually end in dot gov and contain some very heady scientific articles which are buried among other articles. The reason is the US government doesn’t have the time or money to debunk all the junk, bogus, and just plain bad information on the web. So, if you want the truth, you’re going to have to do your homework and dig for it. Here are some links to help you with your question.

Check out these reliable references.

“‘Cleansing’ diets may be worthless”
http://www.webmd.com/diet/features/detox-diets-purging-myths

“A day on a detox diet program probably won’t hurt you, but there’s little point in following these restrictive diets – and they can do far more harm than good, says Michelle May, MD,”
http://www.medicinenet.com/script/main/art.asp?articlekey=64306

“Detox diets are a waste of time and money, say scientists”
http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/article784402.ece

“The human body can defend itself very
well against most environmental insults and the effects of occasional indulgence. If you’re generally healthy, stick to giving your body what it needs to maintain its own detox system— a healthful diet, adequate fluid intake, regular exercise, sufficient sleep, and all recommended medical check-ups. Don’t waste your money…follow a healthy, balanced lifestyle instead.”
Ref: http://www.lee-county.com/gov/dept/HumanResources/Wellness_Newsletters/Aug%2008.pdf

The way to detox is to stop ingesting toxins and let your body cleanse itself naturally. And cleanses, purges, emetics, enemas, etc. cannot remove fat from your body or make your body lose fat. If fat is your problem, you’re eventually going to realize that nothing works except a proper diet for life or surgery. The best diet for all normal adults hasn’t changed. It is still a varied, balanced, nutritious, and properly apportioned diet of high quality foods.

With the help of the web and it’s instant global communication, it only took about a week for the Oprah/Oz acai myth to span the globe. So, one thing is certain. If there was an easy way to detox or lose fat through cleansing, the whole world would know about it very quickly. Why hasn’t that happened? Think about it.

Good luck and good health!!

Question by jUiCy_**pRinCeSs_101**: What is good mental health?
what are ways to good mental health…what is good mental health…i know what mental health is but i get confusedwhen ppl talk about ‘good mental health’…

Best answer:

Answer by Greywolf
good mental health is

watching Steel Magnolias and crying your eyes out.
Telling that disrespectful teenager across the counter taking your order while on her cell phone what her problem is.
About once every month getting righteously angry at whoever has wronged you.

Good mental health is taking care not to let things build up and letting that little pressure valve go off in small spurts instead of a giant explosion in public or privately inside your body.

Question by jobelle_trinidad1991: qualities of a good health educator?
and the principles of health education by the DOH

Best answer:

Answer by Gumdrop Girl
I can’t speak for qualities and principles as outlined by whatever source you’re asking about. But I can speak from my education and experience in public health about what makes for effective health education.

1. Ability to communicate your message effectively to your audience.
2. Cultural competency, the ability to understand how cultures affect our perceptions and practices of public health.
3. Understanding of health sciences. You’d think this would be obvious, but I’ve run into a lot of health educators who don’t know the material very well.
4. Understanding of health disparities and the issues that affect people’s ability to access health care.
5. The ability to be value clear and teach health education without placing judgment.

Question by Daniel: Do you think educating the public about mental health issues would be a good thing to do?
I am studying community health in college, with a minor in health education. I am thinking about being a mental health advocate and a lobbyist someday. I also plan on educating the general public about many mental health issues, especially depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. Do you think this is a good thing to do, in general? What good would come out of it?

Thanks a lot for your answers!

Question by Tennisr0cks: What are some home remedies to get a good complexion?
I need some home remedies that are easy to make. Also some pimple remedies would be great too.

Best answer:

Answer by lexa
if you get a face wash with salicic acid and make sure it is not a cream cleaner but more like a really wash. I really like neutrogena oil-free acne wash. Also i cut my breakouts in half when i only washed my face once at night and only let water on it in the morning. Also drinking water and a clean diet always helps. Dont touch your face or pop your pimples
