    TALK to many people, you hear them expressing their belief in vitamin supplements being effective in making up for any deficiencies in one’s diet.

    Vitamins are good, there is no doubting that. Be it in children, adults or the elderly, vitamin supplements are at times recommended by physicians.

    Intimate Relationships: Impossible With Arthritis
    Developing meaningful relationships is a process. Dating, marriage, and living "happily ever after" can have challenging moments. When you factor in chronic arthritis pain, the challenges become magnified. Arthritis pain can be isolating and cause you to shun socializing and intimate relationships.

    Cosmetic surgery is changing face among Asians
    I never went through with the surgery, but my experience is hardly unique. The pressure to alter one's features and body is endemic in every group and ethnic community in America, and in Asia it is as routine as having one's wisdom teeth pulled. But the number of minorities getting plastic surgery is apparently on a steep rise.

    According to a survey by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the number of minorities getting plastic surgery quadrupled from 1997 to 2002. And in 2005 Asian Americans had 437,000 cosmetic surgeries, up 58 percent from 2004.

    How a womans shoes impact her feet
    They're made for walking, jogging, hiking, even dancing.

    But in the centuries since our ancestors first wrapped their feet in woven grasses and animal skins to protect them from rough surfaces, function has clashed with fashion in the design of our shoes.

    Among women's shoes, fashion has truly trumped function. Colorful sandals, flip-flops, wedges, high heels and ballet flats now dot the sidewalks. One of trendiest shoes this season is YSL's platform "Tribute" - with a tottering 5½-inch heel. Often painstakingly selected to complete outfits, shoes like these put stress not just on feet, but on ankles, knees and backs, contributing to the approximately $3.5 billion spent annually in the United States for women's foot surgeries, which cause them to lose 15 million work days yearly.

According to traditional Chinese medicine, vital energy flows along specific pathways within the body, called meridians.
