Body Positive Volunteers
Body Positive Wellness Center is searching for volunteers. People are living longer
with HIV now because of concerns of taking care of themselves, getting stronger,
building and replenishing lost lean body
mass and getting ba.ck to or starting a well-
ness/fitness program lhat could be overwhelming or a luxury. That is why Body
Positive-Houston, a non-profit agency serving the HlV-t- community for the past 12
years, is creating a "one-stop" center where
an HIV+ person can obtain free or subsidized supervised weight training sessions,
massage therapy, nutritional counseling and
assessment, peer counseling, information on
HIV therapies via seminars and a library,
and purchase nutritional products at wholesale costs. The center will be funded by an
aggressive corporate and private donation
Body Positive is now looking for volunteer
personal trainers, massage therapists, nutritionists and any other therapist who would
be interested in helping this important project. These volunteers will be compensated
in a later phase after the program has been
optimized. For more info, call Nelson

Couch or Ouch PotatoesP
Couch potatoes may trade the couch for
"ouch" if they pursue an exercise program
too aggressively. "It's not uncommon at this
time of year for patients to complain of
chest-wall pain near the rib cage," said Dr.
Wayne Riley, a General Internist and an
Assistant Professor of Medicine at Baylor
College of Medicine in Houston.
If chest-wal] pains do persist, rest at least
a week before exercising again to allow time
for the muscle to recover. "When you
resume exercising, start at a lower level of
intensity and pace yourself lo avoid re-injuring the muscle," Riley said. His recommendations included 1) instead of doing 50
abdominal crunches at the start, begin with
10 and increase the number by five each day
until you reach your goal; 2) Start weight-
lifting routines with a moderate load and
perform repetitions several times a week
Increase the volume by five to 10 perceni as
you become comfortable with the weight
load; and 3) Limit tennis, basketball and
other sports lhat require strenuous shoulder-
arm movements to an hour of play the first
few times, and build up to more strenuous
Seaweed or Chlorella?
What's green, packed with nutrients, and
commonly found in Japanese households?
If you're thinking seaweed you're close. It's
chlorella, a single cell fresh water algae.
Chlorella has been available in the US since
1977, but has remained virtually unknown
to many health enthusiasts. Chlorella's
combination of nutrients reads like a "who's
who" list of nutrition. It contains 19 amino
acids, over 22 vitamins, minerals and trace
elements as well as the-highest content of
chlorophyll of any known food. Chlorella
has been reported to strengthen the immune
system, prevent cancer and detoxify the
