  • Do You Grind Your Teeth? The Reason Why May Surprise You

    Excellent Ways: Life Hacks Extraordinaire
    Rebecca Gresch
    14 Feb 2015 | 7:09 am
    Has your dentist informed you that you grind your teeth? Does your jaw ache when you wake up each morning? Many people suffer from this problem (officially know as bruxism), and they don't know why. Dental devices don't solve the issue. They only deal with the symptom. A mouth guard will prevent you from grinding your teeth at night, but the underlying problem will still exist. So what's causing this? The answer is surprisingly simple: magnesium deficiency. Don't feel bad. A large percentage of the population is deficient in magnesium. We get this mineral from green, leafy…

    A new report based on data from the 2012 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS)* found that nearly 12 percent of children aged 4 to 17 years use complementary health approaches. Although this was not a significant change from the previous survey in 2007, there were significant increases in children’s use of yoga, fish oil, and melatonin. The complementary health approach most commonly used by children was natural products (dietary supplements other than vitamins and minerals) at almost one-quarter the adult rate (4.9 percent vs. 17.6 percent).

    Xiaomeng Zhang
    26 Feb 2015 | 4:00 pm
    Background: Xuesaitong Injection (XST) is one of the most commonly used medicines for treating acute cerebral infarction (ACI) in China. However, compared to the conventional therapy with western medicines (WM), the effectiveness and safety of XST as an adjuvant treatment for ACI needs to be systematically reviewed. Methods: Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) comparing XST & WM with WM for treating ACI were included. Two reviewers independently extracted data. The Cochrane table of Risk of Bias was used to assess the quality of the included studies, and a meta-analysis was conducted…

  • Evaluation of the antibacterial activity of selected Pakistani honeys against multi-drug resistant Salmonella typhi

    Muhammad Hussain
    25 Feb 2015 | 4:00 pm
    Background: The development of resistance to conventional anti-typhoid drugs and the recent emergence of fluoroquinolone resistance have made it very difficult and expensive to treat typhoid fever. As the therapeutic strategies become even more limited, it is imperative to investigate non-conventional modalities. In this context, honey is a potential candidate for combating antimicrobial resistance because it contains a broad repertoire of antibacterial compounds which act synergistically at multiple sites, thus making it less likely that the bacteria will become resistant. The in vitro…

As part of my writing process, I’ve been going back over old notes and term papers in an effort to recall the techniques that helped me learn Chinese herbs so well. It’s been a fun adventure. During that process, I unearthed a decent term paper I wrote about the misunderstood herb Wuzhuyu 吳茱萸 – Evodia ruticarpa.

    There is no doubt that I spend the majority of my time everyday thinking about, studying, using and generally drowning myself in Chinese medicine. Don’t get me wrong – I do spend time and energy elsewhere. I love music. I garden. I hang out watching television and movies from time to time. I like to talk about the Portland food scene, and ethics and so on. But all of that just feeds my addiction to the universe of information I have devoted my life to – this particular way of looking at the earth, the heavens, and the human being in between. I am particularly passionate…

    Owen Marcus

    All of us have experienced muscular sprains and/or strains at some point in our lives. I know I have when I feel stiff getting up from a chair, or when my hamstrings burn from lifting too many heavy objects, or when my quads and back muscles feel stiff from too many hours doing yardwork. Sprains oftentimes generate inflammation, swelling, and subsequently pain and discomfort. Strains generate pain, stiffness, and loss of range of motion. Massage therapy provides an effective methodology for addressing the concerns of strains and sprains. Here is why. When sprains bring inflammation, heat,…

    While listening to a radio program with a prominent doctor, a caller raised the question about taking multivitamins and supplements. The learned doctor told the caller that he could choose any vitamins in grocery stores and pharmacies, that all brands, especially those “one-a-day” products, would be beneficial. I felt mortified. The truth is that vitamins, minerals, and supplements are not all the same. Some companies care and manufacture healthy products, while other companies use inferior grade nutrients and they oftentimes contain more synthetic chemicals rather than real nutrients. It…

    I shouldn’t be telling you this, because if you follow the advice of this article, I will be losing business. A good percentage of my clients over the years are people who worked hard doing what they thought was the right thing. For years experts told us to strengthen our core muscles, the deeper muscles that stabilize our bodies. Crunches or back extensions are the two primary exercises prescribed. Doing these exercises does make you stronger… but you also get tighter. Whenever you have a muscle do a job that it’s primarily not designed to do, you risk tightening and possibly injuring…

    Last week I made a comment about how clean food “smelled” like food and engaged our senses to want to eat it. It got me thinking about our lost senses for real food. We have become a generation of soda drinkers, chips and dip eaters, fast food indulgers, and pre-prepared, processed, and false food ingesters. We have fallen away from our evolutionary pathway of living off the land and thriving on whole foods. But you say, “Times have changed.” Yes, they have, but in the evolutionary pattern of human existence, our bodies have not evolved as rapidly as science and engineering…

    20 Jan 2015 | 3:25 pm
    Do you know that you have about 100,000 hairs on your scalp? Facial hair that men typically shave is about 30,000 hairs. We probably don’t think too much about the purpose of our hair except for how good or bad it can make us look. The purpose of our hair is primarily to protect us from injury, from weather conditions to maintain or release body heat, and to help protect us from the UV rays of the sun. Eyelashes protect our eyes from dust and dirt entering. Body hair can alert us to temperature changes or emotional moments for some leading to a good case of “goose bumps.” Body hair is a…

Have you ever become frustrated or disappointed when you told your family, friends, or medical providers how great your experience has been with Rolfing SI, but they doubted you or did not take you up on your recommendation because they had never heard of Rolfing SI or cited the lack of scientific research? Now is your opportunity to increase the public’s awareness of Rolfing SI by contributing to a crowdfunded, grassroots level…

  • Aromatherapy for Muscle Tension: Make an Inhaler

    Andrea Butje
    23 Feb 2015 | 2:00 am
    Inhalers are a less known—but very effective—way to use aromatherapy for muscle tension relief. One of my favorite ways to use aromatherapy for muscle tension is relaxation massage. I use soothing massage oils and body creams with essential oils, which can really complement the healing power of touch. But I know that massage isn’t an option every time, every place. If you feel your shoulders and neck start to tense up at the office, or you’re at a party and feel strain in your back, it might be awkward to just ask someone to massage you! That’s why I like to use inhalers for muscle…

I’m creating a class about making incense that will show you how. But for now, I’ll share how I use essential oils to scent blank sticks.

  • What are Top, Middle, and Base Notes?

    Understanding top, middle, and base notes in aromatherapy We talk a lot about top, middle, and base notes in aromatherapy. What do we mean exactly, and how can you identify each note? Not every aromatherapy blend has to have all three notes. Making a balanced blend just means you consider and understand which aromas tend to be more dominant, and use fewer drops of the really strong aromas. It helps to begin by imagining the feeling or experience that you want to embody in the blend. For blends that do have top, middle, and base notes, you might have to take your time getting to know the…

    The San Jiao meridian is also known as the Triple Heater or Triple Warmer meridian. The San Jiao meridian is one of the three Yang meridians located on the arm. “The San Jiao, or three visceral cavities, promotes the transformation and transportation of water and fluids throughout the body.” – Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Medicine The San Jiao itself is not a physical organ.  San Jiao means “three burners”. The idea is that in each cavity of the torso (the pelvis, abdomen, chest), there are energy centers that create heat. These centers are often compared…
  • Nourishing the Kidneys

    Cindy Black, L.Ac., LMT

    Winter is the season of the Kidneys. The Kidneys are the Yin Organ of the Water Element. Every Element is associated with a season, winter is the season of the Water Element.  Because of these associations we know that winter is a great time to accentuate the Kidney Organ System. Three ways to nourish the Kidneys during winter: Allow for extra time to sleep. The nights are longer during winter, inviting us to sleep a little more. Allow your creativity to incubate. Creative expression requires times of stillness, of “not knowing”. Just like the seeds incubating in the deep earth,…

They also aid the memory, willpower, and coordination.” – Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Medicine In Chinese Medicine, the Kidneys are of utmost importance as they store our Life Essence. Without Life Essence, there is no life, hence the importance of the Kidneys. The Kidney meridian and points along it are used to nourish and protect our Life Essence. The Kidney(KD)  meridian is the only meridian to have…

    Sensing Qi has been the key to transforming my massage practice. Once I learned how to utilize Qi in my hands-on work, I started getting better results for my clients and creating more ease in my body.   The most common questions I get while teaching about acupoints and meridians are: How do I know if I am on a point? How long should stay on a point? How much pressure should I use? These are big questions that do not have a simple “one size fits all” answer. In response to these questions, I created a free webinar: How “Sensing Qi” Can Transform Your Massage or…

Earthing is real, it's also called grounding, and I incorporate it into my practice daily. A word on earthing/grounding:There are many ways to get reacquainted with that people-Earth connection. One way is through a little visualization, thinking of yourself as a tree with roots growing down from your soles into the earth, then visualizing absorbing that healing earth-frequency into those roots and up into…

    Have you noticed that you feel hungrier in the winter? Do you find you tend to want to eat more and eat heartier foods in the colder months? For example, during the warmer months, my usual eating routine is a light meal between late-morning and early-afternoon, followed by a substantial dinner of a hearty salad, some protein, and perhaps something else.  However, during the winter, I find myself hungry more frequently and earlier in the day, and wanting soups, stews, and crockpot dishes, instead of salads.

That was quite a good bit ago. When a musician finds their instrument, the one meant for them, there is a recognition. You take it off the rack and it buzzes in your haptic perceptions. You feel it in the body. In your viscera. You hold a first guitar close. It’s like meeting a beautiful woman for the first time and holding her gaze; a moment when there are no words between.

    My cancer survivorship program has been self-created through the years. I haven’t always eaten so well. Understanding the relevance of diet in our ability to thrive in the long-term is key. More veggies, less protein (but keep it high quality!) and far less processed foods. Eat real food! Some weeks, my bodywork clients bring me produce from their own gardens or from local farmer’s markets. This week, folks brought me burdock root, mizuna (aka water greens) and shishito peppers, known for their pepper flavor without the heat. Three ingredients, I have never cooked with! Oh, joy!

    Mom passed away ten years ago today. Though she seemed to see her family doctor every other week for chronic pain for years, they diagnosed her cancer at an advanced stage. It was in her lungs, esophagus, sternum, ribs and dotted all over her brain. My father called in the early, early morning. Before the dawn chorus. Before even the birds had woken. I dressed and rushed over. It was a long, silent forty-five minute drive out to Gresham. My heart is aching fierce as I write this. Memory is like time travel. The state of physiology returns to the point of origin. There wasn’t much to…

    8 Oct 2014 | 11:02 am
    A friend recently asked me what I ate for breakfast. Sometimes a smoothie. Sometimes gluten free cereal. Oftentimes, I take time to whip up something fun and creative in the kitchen. It’s always a culinary improvisation, depending on what I have in the fridge. Eating with cancer survivorship in mind requires a wonderful, whole foods diet with lots of variety! This morning, I had a blast making a mixed vegetable sauté with orange pepper, baby bok choy, cremini mushrooms, heirloom tomatoes and kale. On the side, a happy egg. I’ll show you my step by step process that leads to…

    Fellow market-obsessed travelers (or armchair travelers), this post is for you. I love to travel.  And when I travel, I love, love, love to visit markets!  Outdoor fruit + veg markets, indoor food markets, vintage and antique markets, everyday ‘stuff’ type markets, book markets, little village markets and big urban markets – I love them all.  And if there aren’t any markets available, then I head to the regular old grocery store – because I find it fascinating what ‘normal groceries’ look like in other cultures (and of course to buy myself some…

Yes, there’s a lot to learn about making natural beauty products.  It can be quite scientific and technical.  But it can also be about pleasure and play.

    Sometimes, what you’re meant to do just finds you. It turns out that I’m The Beauty Forager.  Who knew? I never intended that to happen.  In fact, when I first moved to England 6 years ago, my experience with foraging was limited to some wild strawberries and blueberries in our backyard.  I remember my mother telling me to chew red clover buds for the sweetness, but I was always vaguely concerned that I would poison myself. I’m not a botanist.  I’m not even into hardcore outdoor pursuits.  Maybe it’s the generations of great-grandmother’s…

    Don’t you need a lot of special ingredients to make your own beauty products? I’m asked this question a lot in my workshops.  It seems like you’d need a ton of expensive oils and hard to find ingredients to make effective natural beauty products.  I thought the same thing too, before I started making them myself. Much like cooking, you can use exotic, expensive ingredients that you special-order from suppliers around the world … or you can simply use good-quality basics.  And much like with cooking, often these simple ingredients give the best results.

Seriously, Thai mosquitos are another species entirely! *Before I get lots of comments, no, sweaty underarms do not repel mosquitos, but they do repel fellow humans! I arrived prepared.  I brought my own homemade insect repellent, and a store-bought kind filled with nasties like DEET (just in case!)…

But did you know the science on artificial food dyes is so thorough and damning that they are banned in two European countries, require warning labels throughout the European Union (and are hence little used), and that Wal-Mart, Coca Cola, and Kraft in Britain don’t use them?

  • Top 41 Foods That Reverse Diabetes

    Dr. Victor Marchione
    27 Feb 2015 | 1:00 am
    A healthy diet is extremely important for anyone, but it’s especially important for diabetics. Many foods we consume are turned into glucose (sugar), which the body uses for energy during the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. When the pancreas fails to produce the hormone insulin, blood sugar cannot get into the body’s cells. (Fortunately, you can help to prevent and even reverse diabetes with the diabetes-fighting foods listed below!) According to the annual National Diabetes Statistics Report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 9.3% of Americans suffer…

    Dr Harsh Sharma
    24 Feb 2015 | 6:02 am
    Obesity or excess of fat is a worldwide epidemic that is increasing day by day. It is much more prevalent in US, Canada and other parts of the western world.

    Dr Harsh Sharma
    16 Feb 2015 | 10:30 pm
    Ptosis or Drooping Eyelid Ptosis ( pronounced as tosis) is the medical term for the drooping of the upper eyelid. The word Ptosis originated from the Greek language. It means ‘to fall’. Ptosis may be defined as falling down or prolapse of any organ or body part. Here we are concerned about the prolapse of the upper eyelid. Ptosis or drooping of the eyelid may be mild when it slightly lowers the upper eyelid. It may be barely noticeable in such cases. It may be severe when the eyelid completely descends over the pupil. It tends to completely occlude the vision. This causes difficulty in…

    In this day and age, everyone is looking for a quick solution to weight loss. There are so many diet pills and weight control programs on the market, it's hard to know what is safe to use and what really works. Fads come and go, and last year's hot products are constantly being renamed and repackaged to give them new appeal. It's a fast-paced, multi-billion dollar industry.  Who has time to keep up with all of this? Most of us simply take the latest pills or subscribe to the new diet, based on claims and testimonies of "real people". When our results are not what we expected, we move on…

    Vitamin D is often called the Sunshine Vitamin, because our bodies naturally absorb this important nutrient from the sun. But did you know that vitamin D provides a tremendous benefit to a part of your body where the sun doesn't shine? The health of your colon is greatly affected by the level of vitamin D in your system. If you are deficient in vitamin D, your colon is likely a minefield of dangerous polyps, which can turn cancerous if left unchecked. Conversely, a body that is high on the vitamin D meter normally sports a healthy, smooth colon wall.I realize that the condition of your…
  • Christian Alternative to Health Insurance: A More Excellent Way Than Obamacare!

    Our illustrious government is always looking for ways to "help" its citizens. At least, that is the guise under which they work. I, for one, could do with less government intervention (I mean...assistance). For years, a national healthcare program has been discussed. It would solve all of the country's ills and right the wrongs of insurance companies. Finally it arrived, wrapped in a shiny package called the Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. Obamacare. From what I have seen, there is nothing affordable about it, unless you qualify for government subsidy. The plans are empty vessels with inflated…

    Bleeding is the body's way of cleansing wounds. The flow of blood carries away dirt and debris that might cause infection, so a little bit of bleeding is actually a good thing. But a wound that bleeds excessively is dangerous. I'm sure you have heard the saying, "Life is in the blood." Therefore, if you lose too much blood, you may lose your life!For years I have known to apply pressure to a bleeding wound, and to keep it elevated above the level of your heart, if possible. These are first aid techniques that really work. But sometimes they don't work very quickly. I have tried to stop the…
  • Do You Grind Your Teeth? The Reason Why May Surprise You

    Has your dentist informed you that you grind your teeth? Does your jaw ache when you wake up each morning? Many people suffer from this problem (officially know as bruxism), and they don't know why. Dental devices don't solve the issue. They only deal with the symptom. A mouth guard will prevent you from grinding your teeth at night, but the underlying problem will still exist. So what's causing this? The answer is surprisingly simple: magnesium deficiency. Don't feel bad. A large percentage of the population is deficient in magnesium. We get this mineral from green, leafy…
