Shh! What was that? Okay. It’s all right. It was either the light fixture in the dining room crashing to the floor or a Molotov cocktail. Sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference. But I think they’ll leave me alone for a few minutes. They have fed. Maybe now they will sleep. Ha! If only it was that simple!

Dear Editor, I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed Larry Leeds article "Isn't Everyone a VIP." This really struck a chord with me. Twice. First, it rarely happens at our hospital, but once in a while somebody is designated a VIP. Anyone who would think this necessary has no understanding whatsoever of nursing and nursing philosophy. I have worked in the hospital setting for over a decade and in that time have worked with exactly two nurses who did not consider every single patient a VIP. And neither of those nurses lasted very long.

Hello, I really enjoyed the last issue of Denver’s Nursing Star. One thing that I would love to see is more issues concerning nursing students that have completed there nursing program but have failed the nclex exam. I was a very efficient nursing student but I had test taking anxiety, we need to provide more information on how students can reboost themselves and retest and present studying sites that are free of charge or cheap for retake studying.

Natural Lifestyles...Commentary by Dr. Linda Mundorff RN, MPH, MSN, ND

I am not a medical doctor and I do not diagnose. However I can provide you with thought-provoking alternatives to traditional allopathic care. I am a Board Certified Naturopath. Naturopaths provide non-invasive, educational opportunities to deal with imbalances in the body. These imbalances can be either physical-mental-spiritual-emotional, and to find resolutions to these imbalances it is important to understand how one’s own body functions. Many complementary healers will discuss imbalances using a triad: physical-mental-spiritual. However it is my belief that emotional manifestations often result from the inability to handle the stress related to illness. Emotions are strong feelings that are expressed in a variety of ways such as: love, joy, sadness, fear, anxiety, panic, and the like. Feelings correlate with emotions. If you are feeling sad you might respond by emoting tears. If you are feeling disappointed in a spouse’s behavior you might emote with anger. We are in control of our emotions, we cannot control mental dysfunction. For example, depression due to a chemical imbalance can only be controlled by medicinal intervention, but depression is expressed with emotions. In order to fully understand emotions one must be able to get in touch with feelings. The following exercise, if done correctly, will help you to understand how your body reacts to your emotions. Do this every evening and start the process to natural health!
