Power of Mindfulness
After TV producer Mark Koberg was diagnosed with HIV, he says he dealt with the condition medically but not emotionally. After a year, the emotional burden took a toll on his health, and doctors told him he had to reduce his stress. Mark turned to mindful-based stress reduction.

"Mindfulness is being in the present moment instead of constantly either rehashing the past or rehearsing the future. We're saying, 'But what is it like right now?' Because right now, things are often OK," explains Dr. Christiane Wolf, director of mindful-based stress reduction at Insights LA.

Advocates say mindful-based stress reduction can help people better manage stress, fear, anger, anxiety and depression. For Mark, the practice led him to change careers and launch a lifestyle brand that encourages mindful meditation.

Dr. Rachael says one study has found that meditation can be about as effective as anti-depressant medications for depression and anxiety.

Dr. Travis says that finding a place or activity that allows you to be mindful and meditate on a daily basis can have huge benefits for your emotional health, as well as your physical health.

Juvenile Arthritis
When Rhiannon was 2 years old, she went to a birthday party, where she played in a jump castle. The next day, her knees were swollen to the size of grapefruits, and she later reverted to crawling instead of walking. A rheumatologist eventually diagnosed her with juvenile arthritis. While most people consider arthritis to be a condition associated with older people, about 294,000 children under 18 have arthritis or rheumatic conditions.

"We had no idea that kids could get arthritis," Rhiannon's mom, Katy, says. "It's hard to know that this is something she's going to have to deal with for the rest of her life."

Juvenile arthritis is an autoimmune condition. The immune cells attack the membranes that line the joints, causing swelling, stiffness, pain and fever. The eyes and skin also can be affected.

There is no cure, but arthritis often can be managed with a combination of oral medications, injections and lifestyle changes.


Pediatrician Dr. Jim Sears joins 11-year-old Rhiannon at the Walk to Cure Arthritis in Los Angeles, where she was honored.
