The Connection between Beauty and Self Esteem As a society we value beauty? Whether it be a flower, a sunset, a car or a person. As a society we also value intelligence, kindness, strength, speed, humor, compassion, and creativity. What we choose to see or not, is influenced by family, peers, social media, marketing messaging and life experiences.(1) The value of beauty can turn into a quest to become beautiful. Sometimes we can start to understand that to be beautiful is to be valued. A...Read More...
Hello everybody, Sorry I haven't posted in quite a while, I've been at a bit of a lull in terms of my research as I am waiting for some survey results to come in. However, I dug up some new research on another type of personality test: The Big Five. The Big Five is a personality test that is considered to be more valid than MBTI, mainly because it assesses people using a range of traits, (2) rather than giving them four letters and placing them in a box. Many psychologists also believe that...Read More...

First of all, I would like to say thank you to everyone who sent me information and links last post. They really helped me go into the right direction. However, the war between Modern North American Medicine (Which I am defining as whatever your GP would recommend) and Naturopathy (Specifically traditional medicine and plant usage for one's well being) can be a messy battlefield. Naturopathy articles themselves can often be very questionable... ...so, I've created a chart to help me stay...Read More...

I've always had a bit of a love-hate relationship with natural remedies. On one hand the idea of a cold-curing remedy hiding away in the confines of my kitchen cupboard sounds fantastic, but it also sounds fantastical. If modern North American medicine costs so much more than a package of organic ginger tea, why is cold and flu medication so popular? While the Nature Vs Science debate can be a harsh and unforgiving battleground, I've decided to look for answers with a completely open mind.Read More...
