Quest for Healing—Go Ahead: Indulge!
By Judy Brooks
I’ve often regarded chocolate as a guilty pleasure, but it really goes beyond pure indulgence, doesn’t it? Yes! Recent scientific evidence has shown that if we have enough chocolate, it will lower our blood pressure, potentially lower our cholesterol, give us some of the vitamins we get in our servings of fruit and vegetables, and may even act like a baby aspirin.
Are all chocolates created equal?
I recommend chocolate that contains at least 50 percent cocoa, because that’s where you’ll find the active ingredients, vitamins called flavonoids. Specifically, dark chocolate contains more cocoa. The most reputable brands of chocolate will list the percentage of cocoa content right on the label. Or, if the first ingredient listed is cocoa, that’s a good indicator that the cocoa content is high.
Won’t chocolate’s high calorie content offset its benefits?
Well, I think of it as a treat, not as a main course. Maybe about a third of a bar a day is something that one could have. And, if you’re really struggling with calories, my suggestion is to try high-grade cocoa hot chocolate, because it will have less fat.
I’m guessing your patients like coming to see you?
All my patients are really happy when they hear about this.
Chocolate Causes Cavities
Sugar causes cavities. Some of the bacteria in chocolate may actually help prevent bacterial attacks on tooth enamel.
Chocolate is High in Caffeine
Not really—an average piece of chocolate contains about 10 mg of caffeine; a cup of coffee contains 100 mg.
Chocolate is Addictive
According to experts, while chocolate does contain some stimulants, they aren’t present in large enough quantities to affect the brain or the nervous system by creating addiction.
Eating Chocolate Gives You Acne
There’s no evidence to support that acne and chocolate are related.

From Fear to Faith
Dates: 5/28/2013 – 5/28/2013
St. Joseph Mercy Hospital Education CenterYpsilanti
Educational Center Auditorium
“From Fear to Faith” will be presented on Tuesday May 28, 2013; 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm; by James Balmer, Dawn Farm President; and Jason Schwartz, LMSW, CAADC; Clinical Director, Dawn Farm. In a difficult marketplace where many addiction treatment programs closed due to lack of resources, Dawn Farm expanded from a single residential site in 1973 to a continuum of services provided at multiple sites today. This program will describe the evolution of the treatment field over the past forty years, discuss what can be learned from Dawn Farm's successes and failures, illustrate how mission-driven choices have allowed Dawn Farm to survive and thrive, and explain the power of rejecting fear-based program management. This program is part of the FREE, annual Dawn Farm Education Series. Our presentations offer helpful, hopeful, practical information that supports people with alcohol and other drugs addiction in achieving, maintaining, and strengthening their recoveries. The series educates family members on issues relating to addiction and its effect on the family, and offers information that will be useful for family members and friends in relating to people with alcohol and other drug addiction whether they are actively using or in recovery. Professionals and students will also benefit from this pertinent information. All programs are free and open to anyone interested. Registration is not required. 1.5 hours of free C.E. approved by MCBAP (Michigan Certification Board for Addiction Professionals) is offered for each program. A certificate to document attendance is provided on request. The Education Series is organized by Dawn Farm, a non-profit community of programs providing a continuum of chemical dependency services. For information, please contact Matt Statman, LLMSW, CADC, Education Series Coordinator, at 734-485-8725 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or see http://www.dawnfarm.org/programs/education-series.
