10 Rules for Growing Healthier Children
By Brenda Hermiz :: 41872 Views :: Health & Fitness

Children in America face a huge problem!  Obesity is a serious health concern in America and is affecting Chaldean families more and more.  Chaldeans forgetting the roots of their culture on matters of wholesome and nutritious living are at risk of adopting the American food habits of eating processed sugary food.  Parents making poor choices combined with commercials peddling their sugary treats for breakfast, lunch, and dinner has created a health crisis in America.  Unfortunately, Many Chaldeans are caught in the net as well. 

Over 20 percent of American children are overweight -- almost five times the rate of 30 years ago. Twenty-five percent of all children who are overweight will grow up to be overweight as adults. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently issued this dire, but true, warning: Obesity is an epidemic, and if the current trend continues, one-third of all children born in 2010 will become diabetic later in life.

Healthcare costs are skyrocketing and a major factor to the rising cost is obesity.  The quality of life for the obese is also miserable.  Children as well as adults experience severe health and emotional problems like depression and anger. 

To protect your family from the threat of obesity, Chaldeans as well as Americans, will have to make smarter choices, become more responsible for their eating habits, and accept the fact that they must rely on themselves for the care of their health as well as their family.  Parents must do a better job in teaching their kids the right eating habits. 

Here are 10 rules to help families become healthier.

Chaldean Authors Discuss The Root of Rivalry Among Women
By Huda Metti :: 60084 Views :: Health & Fitness, Living & Lifestyle, Religion & Spirituality

"Sometimes healthy competition for what we want turns into a problematic desire to have something merely because a rival already has it. This is not just based on what we want, but also on what we don’t want our perceived rival to have,” writes author, Susan, Barash in her book “Tripping the Prom Queen: The truth about Women and Rivalry.” 

Seventy percent of the five hundred women interviewed said they were familiar with the concept Barash writes about.  Barash is a professor of gender studies at Marymount Manhattan College in New York and became fascinated by women's relationship. Can sisters, mothers and best friends be jealous and supportive at the same time? In fact she found that rivalry and envy often pervades female relationships.

The women were interviewed on female competition.  The study revealed that many women are competitively mean.   In her book, Barash outlines why women compete with each other differently than men do with other men and why women often want to sabotage powerful female rivals.

Chaldean Summer Heat Precautions
By Brenda Hermiz :: 22334 Views :: Health & Fitness

Summer months are upon us and Chaldeans are feeling the heat.  The summer scorchers causing beach sun burns may be the summer trademark, but other heat related illnesses are just as dangerous. 

Although Chaldeans are inherently from hot areas, current migration has placed Chaldeans in different environments.    Some places are dry and hot and others humid and hot.  The heat can be our friend, but it can also be very dangerous. 

These helpful tips can make the difference in ruining the family's summer:

Nordstrom of Partridge Creek Contracts with Chaldean Entrepreneur to Extend Skin Care Products Line
By Brenda Hermiz :: 47291 Views :: Health & Fitness, Business & Finance

Michigan,USA - The youth and beauty of a Chaldean is all too obvious.  The unique diet, good genes, olive toned skin, frequent cleanings, and skin care management secrets all contribute to the youthful beauty.  This unique trait is something the Nordstrom retailer took notice, and hopes to leverage, at the opening of their new store in the Mall at Partridge Creek. 

The store has contracted with Joanne Recchia-Kallabat’s company SkinOnyx, the U.S. distributor for Italy’s Kleraderm skin care products to make the product available in the cosmetics section of the new Nordstrom. 

"It feels like I brought Nordstrom with me," she said of her return.  The only other U.S. store that carries Kleraderm is the Nordstrom in Troy's Somerset Collection, where they've earned a strong following over the past three years.  "Nordstrom calls them 'Kleranets' because they only want Kleraderm products," Recchia-Kallabat said.  Kleraderm is an advanced skin care line developed by a doctor in Bologna, Italy.  "It really works," Recchia-Kallabat said. "It's been a beauty secret of the stars for years."

Four Steps for Losing Weight Permanently
By Brenda Hermiz :: 25 Views :: Health & Fitness, Living & Lifestyle

Chaldean lifestyle and eating habits have changed.  Living in the American culture and adopting American eating habits have led to an increase risk of obesity and chronic illness in the Chaldean community.  Chaldeans have lived through many health crises in the past but the latest threat, though largely preventable, has silently grown to potentially deadly proportions. Chaldeans as well as Americans are in the grips of an “obesity epidemic,” whereby 65 percent of the American population is overweight and a growing number of Chaldean toddlers and children are obese. 

Even those who may not consider themselves overweight may be carrying a large amount of deadly belly fat, known to increase the risk of heart disease in relatively slim people.   Most Chaldeans have a basic sense that being overweight is bad for their health, but few appreciate just how dangerous it is.

Controlling fat excess is really fairly simple: Eat for health, not for pleasure. This is not to say that a healthy diet has to taste bad. But it is critical to keep in mind that the goal is a diet that provides health. The loss of excess fat will always come when you follow a healthy diet.

Below are four steps for losing weight permanently.

Getting Kids to Eat Their Vegetables
By Britney Hermiz :: 21228 Views :: Health & Fitness

Want your kids to eat their veggies? Start offering them when they're tiny babies, and don't take a grimace to mean "No."  Think Chaldean babies receive enough vegetables in their diet?  Think again. 

Mennella, an expert on food choices at the Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia recently had 45 mothers spoon-feed their babies puréed green beans once daily. Half the group also offered puréed peaches afterward. At first, the babies who got peaches ate more peaches than beans; after eight days, both groups were eating green beans and had increased their consumption twofold. "They'll wrinkle their noses," Mennella says, "but they still continue to eat."

The babies who were breast-fed also ate more peaches than formula-fed babies, perhaps because their mothers ate more fruit than non-breastfeeding moms. This echoes Mennella's earlier research, in which babies born to women who drank carrot juice in the third trimester favored cereal made with carrot juice, as did babies whose mothers drank carrot juice while breast-feeding. "It's really a fundamental feature of all mammals," Mennella says. "It's the first way we learn about foods and flavors."

You have heard Chaldean grandmothers telling their daughters to eat some baklava to sweeten breast milk.  Mannella’s research seems to prove the wise words.

Ear Infection Warning Signs and Solutions
By Ghazawan Kashat :: 53054 Views :: Health & Fitness

It is of no surprise that all are susceptible to colds.   While some Chaldeans are accustomed to constant change of weather, there are plenty who are vulnerable.

Think of waking up to the traditional tea and toast one morning, and before you know it, you realize your nose is stuffy, your throat is scratchy and a sneeze is slowly sneaking up on you.  You try to reach for a tissue to catch it in time, and all the while feel the aches in your body, and the light-headed feeling that comes right before the big “Ah-Chu!” And it’s here: that nasty cold that’s been going around; the one your friend(s)/family has complained about all week.

Those that should really be watched over carefully are the younger Chaldean children. They are still building their immune system and other infections could easily develop alongside the cold, like ear infections.

10 Chaldean to-do's after the "I do"
By Latifa Seeba :: 42519 Views :: Health & Fitness, Community & Culture

Ghasoon Majed and Dawood Summa, met at a Communion celebration party.  “We were both friends of the family.  The parents of the boy that received Communion had a barbeque and invited friends and family to their home.  I was a friend of the boy’s older brothers and Ghasoon was a friend of boy’s aunt,” Dawood fondly remembers. “I was around 24 and she was 20.  I kept bringing her tea so we could talk.  We must have finished two pots by ourselves.  The worst part was that we both had to use the bathroom after drinking so much tea.  The best part was that neither of us wanted to go because we enjoyed talking to one another so much.”

After several hours of conversation—and several pots of tea—Ghasoon and Dawood knew they wanted to be together. Some 20 years have passed, living in four different countries since that tea-filled talk, but when Ghasoon phones her husband to say she's on her way home, Dawood ready reply is, "I'll put the teapot on." For Ghasoon, that simple phrase, loaded with memories and meaning, tells her she is still loved by the man she fell in love with.

In America and Europe more than 40 percent of first-time marriages fail.  Chaldean couples continue to need both an understanding about what it takes to make their marriages last in Western society.  Latifa Seeba examines the latest research and studies on Marriage and shares some of the “Do’s” that Chaldean couples can use to make the journey together easier and more rewarding.
