Scientists seem to discover more about how to stay healthy every day.
Three new exciting developments in health
• Peppermint. Some studies suggest that peppermint oil may be useful in relieving irritable bowel syndrome, whose symptoms include abdominal pain and cramping, bloating, constipation, and diarrhea.
• Walking. The benefits of regular, brisk walks are well known, but researchers in Spain say that women who walk for three hours or more a week are less likely to suffer strokes than those who don’t walk at all, doing even better than women who engage in other high-intensity workouts throughout the week.
• Yoga. Breast cancer survivors dealing with fatigue caused by chemotherapy and radiation may find relief in yoga, according to physicians. One study found that two weekly 90-minute sessions of Hathe yoga helped survivors gradually regain their energy and mental alertness, and also appeared to help them sleep better.
