Will I Ever Be Happy?

An estimated of eight million Americans suffer from a condition known as dysthymia, a chronic low-grade depression. What causes dysthymia? Some researchers believe all depressions are biologically based and possibly caused by a deficiency of neurotransmitters or brain hormones such as serotonin. This research led to the popularity of such antidepressant medications as Prozac, which balance the supply of naturally produced neurotransmitters

A surprising new health tip: When you're angry, let it show

Before her divorce, Jane, a 52-year-old attorney, had a hard time dealing with an emotionally abusive husband who badgered their son and verbally attacked her. Sure, she was angry at her ex, but when researchers asked her about her experiences, she never once used the term "angry" to describe her feelings.    Ditto when detailing a difficult situation at work. "Frequently I will say: 'It upsets me that I can't express this without the depth of my emotion showing,' " she says. "I try to kind of temper my reactions."

ATLANTA (CNN) -- The guidelines are familiar: Eating right, exercising and not smoking can reduce the risk of heart disease. Now research shows those benefits can be dramatic for women.

"I was surprised the magnitude was so large -- over 80 percent reduction in risk," said study leader Dr. Meir Stampfer of Harvard University and Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston.

"Last night I slept for eight hours but I still feel tired."
"I worry constantly; I'm so self-critical it's ridiculous."
"I get these headaches, my stomach hurts; right now I can feel something weird in my lower back..."

Sound familiar?  Exhaustion, the jitters, the inability to concentrate, a queasy stomach--most of us feel some symptoms of anxiety in a world that grows more complex and unpredictable by the minute. For the most part, anxiety is situational.  Your heart pounds before you give a speech.  You're nauseous when your wedding plans go awry.

Some of us believe that if we relish success or enjoy it, something terrible will happen. "I've always thought that when something good happens, something bad is around the corner," confides one woman. For her, self criticism becomes a means to an end rather than a result of anything negative that happens in her life. It's protective. It's her way of saying, "I'm already suffering as anyone can see; I get no joy out of my life, so there's no need to hit me again with bad news, thank you." But the costs for the illusion that you are warding off evil through self-criticism are enormous.

Compulsive Self Reliance
Are You the Only Person You Depend On?
Picture this:

You're swamped at your desk when an assistant hired two weeks ago offers to help. You:
a) Gladly hand him two projects off your desk with a sigh of relief
b) Think, "By the time I show him how to do this, I could finish it myself" and politely turn down his offer of assistance
c) Say no. You don't want the buzz around the office to say you don't have this project under control.

Joan Borysenko, Ph.D., in Minding the Body, Mending the Mind, writes: "If you could train your mind to let go of other desires, returning to them when the actual moment has come to do the bills and make the phone call, you would be able to experience peace of mind. The road to peace of mind is through a practice called mindfulness."

Top Blood Pressure Measurement More Important
Than Bottom, Researchers Say

(CNN) -- The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) has issued a new health advisory for diagnosing and treating high blood pressure.

For years, doctors thought the top number in a blood pressure reading was the less important measurement, and that it was normal for this number to rise with age. But now, NHLBI says the opposite is true.

Phytoestrogens: An Exciting Alternative

"Phytoestrogen" seems to be the new buzz word these days when discussions turn to menopause and alternatives to hormone replacement therapy, but what are phytoestrogens and how do they affect us? Phytoestrogens are a group of compounds found in plants that influence our own estrogen activity. They can either act as a weak estrogen, or provide precursors to substances that affect our estrogen activity. To understand how phytoestrogens work, it is important to understand a little about how our hormones work in general.
