Rosemary has a very old reputation for improving memory, and has been used as a symbol for remembrance (during weddings, war commemorations and funerals) in Europe and Australia In Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Ophelia says, “There’s rosemary, that’s for remembrance.” From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosemary
I personally like to add lots of rosemary leaves to my chicken or veggie stock, add rosemary sprigs to the pan when roasting veggies such as potatoes, carrots, celery, onions, parsnips, turnips, etc.

Quickly rinse rosemary under cool running water and pat dry. Most recipes call for rosemary leaves, which can be easily removed from the stem. Alternatively, you can add the whole sprig to season soups, stews and meat dishes, then simply remove it before serving. A few quick serving ideas:

Add fresh rosemary to omelets and frittatas.

Rosemary is a wonderful herb for seasoning chicken and lamb dishes.

Add rosemary to tomato sauces and soups.

Purée fresh rosemary leaves with olive oil and use as a dipping sauce for bread.

Straw Men on Parade: When Research Findings Get Misrepresented

The simplest way to explain a straw man argument is that it is a fallacy based upon the misrepresentation of an opponent’s position.

It may oversimplify the opponent’s position or quote it out of context, stacking the deck so one’s argument may run over the opponent with the crushing totality of a Panzer tank division. In its worst incarnation, the straw man misrepresentation is deliberate and only the weakest target is chosen- that target is then held to represent the totality of the opponet’s being.

What is obvious and disturbing is that straw men are not just marketing ploys that we’ve become jaded to seeing in television commercials; they are found even in the highest echelons of peer-reviewed journals in medical literature. Straw men seem to have been particularly dominant in publications critical of alternative medical approaches, even appearing in at least one instance in a pharmaceutical company’s attempt to denigrate another company

Characteristics of Applied Kinesiology

  • Diagnoses and treats the primary cause of neuromusculoskeletal dysfunction, i.e . muscle impairment and weakness.
  • Adds patient-specific information to the standard history, physical diagnosis, and laboratory tests.
  • Provides an interactive assessment of an individual’s functional health status that is non-invasive, risk-free, and not equipment intensive.
  • Improves the reliability of examination tools (motion palpation, cranio-sacral palpation, pulse-diagnosis, and postural analysis) by the use of manual muscle testing.
  • Helps the doctor to understand functional symptomatic complexes when standard diagnosis and laboratory tests show no cause for the symptoms.
  • Examines all sides of the triad of health.

  • Evaluates the nervous system’s control of the body.
  • Integrates function of the meridian system (acupuncture) into the examination.
