You and Your Health

A heroin primer

Readers of The River Reporter are familiar with our local, state and national epidemic of heroin addiction, along with other opioid abuse. What is lacking in much of the information is a discussion about the actual substance, reasons why it is so addictive, and short- and long-term health effects with its use.

The winter blues

The holidays and change of seasons can affect many people negatively. Individuals with limited support systems can dread the onset of the holidays because it makes them feel more isolated. Those who have experienced significant personal loss of loved ones often experience a renewal of grieving during the holidays.

Bee sting allergies

Most of us have had the experience of being stung by an insect—most commonly in this area by a bee, wasp, or yellowjacket. The majority of us will notice a mild swelling at the sting site and a temporary discomfort that gradually fades away.
