The Alexander Technique: The Alexander Technique is a method that works to change (movement) habits in our everyday activities. It is a simple and practical method for improving ease and freedom of movement, balance, support and coordination.

The Mayo Clinic Health Oasis: Want the real scoop on Liposuction? Anti-depressants? Beta-Blockers? Here's an informative, general health web site that is easy-to-use. Our only gripe: the nutrition section still endorses a high-carb, low-fat diet, and the information they do have about low-carb diets is misleading.
The Protein Power Plan: This site is very commercial, however it contains some good information about low-carbohydrate dieting provided by Drs. Michael R. and Mary Dan Eades, currently the Medical Directors at the Colorado Center for Metabolic Medicine in Boulder. You can buy their book for much less than the plan they offer in this site if you don't need the motivational cassette tapes and video.
