Self-Help: Diets, Health Discoveries, Wellness, Fitness, Remedies, etc

A Listmania! list by Jan Peczkis "Scholar and Thinker" (Chicago IL, USA)
The list author says: "Health, diet, fitness, wellness--much can be done to assist the human body. Some remedies are ancient; other remedies are new. There are diets and there are diets. I prefer the low-carb diet to enhance health and wellness. There are remedies for dandruff and remedies for cancer. Of course, the reader interested in self-help must exercise caution in their quest for health, wellness, and overall fitness. Some remedies and diets have greater scientific support than other diet plans and remedies. Some approaches to diet are fads, while other diet plans have withstood the test of time. What other health discoveries will we encounter in the near future?"
