Working Out Problems- June 2016

June 2016

Hi Everybody Dr. Norris here,

How we deal with adversity says a lot about us and our character. Working out problems and finding the right way to respond is a challenge.
I found this story online about dealing with problems... I hope you enjoy it.

Many years ago, a farmer had the misfortune of owing a large sum of money to a village moneylender. The moneylender, who was old and ugly, fancied the farmer’s beautiful daughter. So he proposed a bargain. He said he would forgo the farmer’s debt if he could marry his daughter.

Both the farmer and his daughter were horrified by the proposal. So the cunning money-lender suggested that they let providence decide the matter. He told them that he would put a black pebble and a white pebble into an empty money bag. Then the girl would have to pick one pebble from the bag.

If she picked the black pebble, she would become his wife and her father’s debt would be forgiven. If she picked the white pebble she need not marry him and her father’s debt would still be forgiven. If she refused to pick a pebble, her father would be thrown into jail.

They were standing on a pebble strewn path in the farmer’s field. As they talked, the moneylender bent over to pick up two pebbles. As he picked them up, the sharp-eyed girl noticed that he had picked up two black pebbles and put them into the bag. He then asked the girl to pick a pebble from the bag.

Take a moment to ponder this. What would you recommend that the girl do?

The girl put her hand into the moneybag and drew out a pebble. Without looking at it, she fumbled and let it fall onto the pebble-strewn path where it immediately became lost among all the other pebbles.

“Oh, how clumsy of me!” she said. “But never mind, if you look into the bag for the one that is left, you will be able to tell which pebble I picked.”

The moneylender dared not admit his dishonesty. The girl changed what seemed an impossible situation into an extremely advantageous one. Most problems do have a solution, sometimes we just need to think in a different way.

Dealing with pain can be a challenge.
What is the best remedy? Can I afford it? Who do I trust for advice?

I am always available for advice regarding painful conditions. I promise to give it to you honestly and without an agenda. We appreciate your patronage and will continue to provide quality affordable health care to the Antelope Valley.

Not All Fats Are Created Equal
There are good fats, like monounsaturated and polyunsaturated, which can help reduce bad cholesterol levels, and reduce your risk for heart disease and stroke. These include: avocados, olives, nuts and seeds. And then, there are bad fats, like saturated and trans fat, which can put you at greater risk for heart disease. These include: fatty meats, fast food and margarine. So eat the good fat, not the bad.

is caused by food choice, toxic food ingredients,
nutritional deficiencies and lack of physical exercise.”  ~
