  • Herb of the Week: Lemon Balm

    Tina Sams
    21 Nov 2014 | 10:54 am
    When I first started working at The Rosemary House, Susanna taught me about lemon balm. Other than the fact that it is delicious the herb is fantastic for seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and what I found most amazing was that its root system lives all year round! Lemon balm is in the mint family and has been used for everything from insomnia to colic for hundreds of years. Lemon balm is often used in tea for its flavor but can bring positive affects medicinally. Lemon balm has been used to encourage perspiration to break a fever. The herb can also be mixed with valerian or chamomile to calm…

  • Herb of the Week: Licorice

    Tina Sams
    16 Nov 2014 | 7:49 am
    As the days have gotten shorter and the scarves have gotten longer I’ve begun craving licorice tea almost every morning. There is something about the warming bouquet of spices that just make waking up much, much easier.I wondered why this need for licorice suddenly occurred. I had always been given licorice root on days that I’ve had a sore throat or licorice tea to help stop a cough but I’ve never had cravings for the herb.So I had to research it, of course!What I found was that licorice is a surprisingly versatile herb that is incredibly tasty.Licorice is great for PMS symptoms,…

  • How to Prevent and Heal Shin Splits

    Owen Marcus
    18 Nov 2014 | 12:46 pm
    As anyone who has had them will tell you, shin splints are painful and persistent. They are caused when your shin muscle (anterior tibialis) tears away from the bone (tibia), and is the most common running injury, representing up to 60% of all overuse injuries to the lower leg.[1] If the true cause is not treated, you are at risk of developing more serious conditions such as plantar fasciitis (tearing of the connective tissue of the bottom of the foot) and stress fractures (small cracks in the bone). Traditional treatment includes rest, ice, anti-inflammatory drugs, orthotics, range of motion…

    Have you ever thought about how your life would be today if there were no obstacles standing in your way? What if all possibilities you see for yourself lay before you only waiting for your choosing? How would you respond? What would you change? Would you change your present condition or situation if the doors opened, doors to opportunities you have dreamed of or longed for but settled into a thinking pattern that such ideas were just not for you?

    The field of Physical Therapy had its humble beginnings back in the days of Roosevelt and the Polio “sanitariums”. The field has progressed over the years advancing from educational requirements of a Bachelor’s degree to that of a DPT or Doctor of Physical Therapy. Sandpoint is blessed with an abundance of Physical Therapists. I find that most people are unaware that Physical Therapists specialize in a wide variety of areas.

  • How to Get to Sleep When You Have a Cold

    17 Nov 2014 | 2:00 am
    A bedtime linen spray to help you sleep when you have a cold or the flu. What are the main things the doctor tells you to do when you have a cold or the flu? Drink plenty of fluids, and get plenty of rest. Drinking fluids is usually no problem, but getting plenty of rest can be easier said than done! It’s not always easy to get to sleep when you have a cold . . . and lying awake all night restlessly can be so frustrating. I have a linen spray recipe that you can spray on your sheets, blankets, and pillowcases before you tuck yourself in, which can help your mind and body relax while easing…
  • A Distiller With a Huge Heart: Globarom!

    Andrea Butje
    10 Nov 2014 | 2:00 am
    During my time on Mahe in the Seychelles, my natural perfumery teacher, Isabelle Gelle, took us to visit a distillery called Globarom. The distiller is Mustafa Harum Bristol. He has a fantastic distillery and I was really inspired by his work. He is the only essential oil distiller in the Seychelles. He built his own stills and has a beautiful plot of land where he is growing aromatic plants, vegetables and fruits—all organic. Back in 2003, patchouli could be found alongside roads and paths everywhere in the Seychelles. Until the early 1980’s, the Seychelles was a major exporter of…

    Frankincense essential oil is one of my favorites! I know that I’m not alone. Every time I talk about Frankincense essential oil (Boswellia carterii), so many people chime in saying that it feels like a friend to them, too. I even wrote a blog post about how much people love it! You can find that here, along with three recipes for using Frankincense essential oil in blends to heal scar tissue, relieve colds and flu, and help you relax into evening meditation. What is it about Frankincense essential oil that we love so much? It certainly does have a lot of therapeutic properties. It’s one…

    Plant ideas for when you start planning your garden. I like to try new plants in my garden, but I also have long-time favorites that I come back to again and again. Right now is harvest time in some parts of the world. People are bringing in squash and vegetables, and are protecting their gardens from the coming frost. In other areas, it’s just time to start the garden. Either way, now is a good time to plan! Three of my favorite aromatic plants for the garden are rosemary, lavender, and basil.

    Cindy Black, L.Ac.
    20 Nov 2014 | 6:15 am
    Lately I’m lost in fast moving thoughts, agitated by endless “to do lists”, rushing through traffic to get to a yoga class.  Catching up with myself this morning, bringing my attention to my breath, a familiar  sense of settling slowly seeps into my cells. From stillness I begin familiar movements. But now I am present in body and breath. I pause my motion, then stop. Droping all intention to move, I wait for my breath.  Now moving only at the speed of my breath. Qi Gong (“chee gung”) is a form of Chinese movement that encourages skill (Gong) with (Qi).  Qi…
  • Thoughts on dose

    Cindy Black, L.Ac.
    6 Nov 2014 | 2:38 am
    How much is too much, not enough, just right? Dose applies to hands-on healing as much as it applies to pharmaceutical drugs and herbal formulas. When working with meridians and points, you are working directly with Qi (“chee”). Although difficult to comprehend, Qi (energy) is very real. If your client feels exhausted or extremely hyper after their healing session, perhaps they were “over-dosed”. If they sense that nothing at all happened, perhaps they were “under-dosed”.  In my experience, the tendency with most of us is to over-dose as we strive to give…
  • Easing the heart

    Cindy Black, L.Ac.
    10 Oct 2014 | 6:56 am
    Ren 17 (Conception Vessel 17) is a great point for relieving emotional stress weighing on the heart. Named Shan Zhong, “Chest Center”, I add this point into my sessions for people who are in the midst of crisis, loss, and/or stressful times. The point is located in the center of chest, on the sternum (breast bone). Ren 17 is at our heart center. When we hold our emotions in, sometimes they get bunched up in this area. By applying gentle pressure to Ren 17 we encourage the unraveling of the energy associated with these emotions. You know things are loosening up when the breath…

    2 Oct 2014 | 8:52 am
    A few trees have planted themselves in my garden. It’s been months of me wondering what to do about them. Do I pull them out while they are small? Do I wait and see what they are? Am I being too controlling about this little area of earth called “my garden”? Who am I to destroy another tree? Why is a tree growing here a weed, but the tree growing there is “a beautiful tree”? On this Earth, am welcomed or am I a weed? I am both, and I am neither. Inspired by the book, In Harmony with Nature, just published by my good friend, Teresa L. Crosier, DOM.   Part 1…

    Welcome to the Metal Element. It’s Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere. Each of the 5 Elements of Chinese medicine is associated with a different season. Metal is the Element associated with Autumn. This is the time of the year that the trees are letting go of their leaves, and plants are condensing their energy into their roots. The Metal Element is a time of letting go, of going inward, condensing and consolidating our energy and attention. During Autumn you can harmonize with the Metal Element in order to support your health and vitality all year long. What does Metal Element ask of…

    There's a company that makes shoes for energy healers, and those who are interested in "Earthing," or connecting energy with the earth for all of the health benefits that come with it. 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…

    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…

    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.

Reclining in the treatment chair for my supposedly relaxing pre-flight facial, I wasn’t feeling very relaxed.  As the ‘tingling’ sensation got even stronger, I debated about whether I should ‘tough it out’ and risk a red-face for the next few days, or ask her to take it off.  (This was back in my corporate road-warrior days when I had access to the business class lounge, and ahhh, pre-flight spa treatments!) The peeling masque was eventually rinsed off (yes, I toughed…
  • 5 easy homemade beauty recipes

    21 Jul 2014 | 2:43 am
    I think I was destined to work in natural beauty, because I’ve always been fascinated by what’s in our beauty products. I remember sitting in the bath and reading the side of the shampoo bottle.  The ingredients baffled me.  Sodium laura what?  What was that stuff in my shampoo?  Where did it come from?  Did they use these ingredients just so I couldn’t make it myself?  (From a very young age I was already into cooking and making things myself!) Of course then I didn’t think about the possible health consequences of slathering myself with chemicals everyday.
  • Clear Thinking Balm (for stress + headaches)

    14 Jul 2014 | 2:09 am
    Sometimes product ideas can sit with you for months – years even – before you get around to making them.  You need a little push.  At least, I do. Recently I spent a day in Paris with Kimberly Wilson doing a natural perfumery workshop.  Giving a workshop while travelling is always a challenge – what ingredients to bring and what can you buy when you arrive?  I took the Eurostar from London with a suitcase filled with essential oils, beeswax, bottles + jars, labels, pens, and a huge amount of herbal tea for the day.  But I wasn’t expecting to make this. A quick…

    Clifton Park, New York’s Capital District Vitality Center news: Help your teen get enough sleep Teens burn through life because, well, they can, and research shows two out of three teens are severely sleep deprived. But what teens and the adults in their lives don’t realize is that sleep deprivation raises the risk of car accidents and driving fatalities (driving sleepy is as bad as driving drunk), obesity, diabetes, depression, risk-taking behavior, and suicidal ideation. It also raises the risk of the very adult diseases of high blood pressure and heart disease. Studies show sleep…

    Clifton Park, New York’s Capital District Vitality Center news: PQQ helps protect the brain By now you’ve probably heard of CoQ10 and it’s anti-aging potential. The newest discovery in the anti-aging world is PQQ (pyrroloquinoline quinone). PQQ works inside your cells like CoQ10 by defending them from damage. But what sets PQQ apart is that it can also energize your cells so they function better. This is done by PQQ’s ability to enhance mitochondrial function. Mitochondria are tiny compartments inside the body’s cells that are often referred to as the cell’s batteries or…

    Clifton Park, New York’s Capital District Vitality Center news: Take small steps for big rewards It seems the times when we most need to support ourselves with healthy habits is when we are most apt to fall off the wagon. It can happen during major life changes or stressors, such as a move, the end of a relationship, or change in job status. Although the desire to comfort ourselves with sweets, junk foods, and too many days off from the gym are powerful, in the long run slacking off just adds to the stress. Instead of beating yourself up (which just causes even more stress), honor the fact…

    About Meditation

  • What Is The Dark Side Of Meditation?

    Morgan Dix
    15 Nov 2014 | 7:06 pm
    Does meditation have a dark side? Can a three thousand year old practice promoted by the Dalai Lama actually harm you? Well, the simple answer is yes. Like any new endeavor taken to extremes without proper guidance and preparation, it’s not without its risks. But it’s complex, and if you are interested in meditation, it’s worth learning about. And I’ll be honest with you, until recently I never gave it much thought. After meditating for 20 years, the broad arc of my experience has been exceedingly positive. But it’s included a healthy dose of pain, struggle, and suffering along the…

We’re mammals after all and we were made to touch, dream, and be together. The older I get, the more true that feels to me. But we live in a time when many of us feel more alone than ever. Why is that? I think there are a lot of valid reasons that are bigger than any one of us. Of course, it really stinks when you feel lonely and isolated. But it’s important to know the difference between being alone and being lonely. Because there’s a big…

But since I started writing about meditation a year ago, there’s one question that people ask me more than any other. At first it surprised me, but then I realized it’s a question that plagued me for many years as well. And this question makes sense, because meditation (and mindfulness) has gone mainstream.

I never believed that it was a permanent condition, and that if I addressed the underlying problems that are causing that symptom, then maybe the fructose malabsorption would go away as my gut healed.

    If you are reading this, your doctor has likely recommended that you have a gallbladder removal procedure.

It is perfectly normal to have some reservations about having an organ removed, though, so here is an idea of what to expect from surgery and what happens to your body without a gallbladder.

    8/12/14: I had an appointment at Mayo Clinic today, where it was discovered that the cause of my labral tear is femoral anteversion, a condition where “the femoral neck leans forward with respect to the rest of the femur.” (Source). The only way to correct the abnormality is a surgery where they break the femur and rotate it into a more natural position. Since this is a pretty major surgery, the doctor recommended I get a cortisone injection first. If it helps my pain, it means that the pain is coming from the hip socket, and likely the labral tear itself. If it doesn’t,…

In the past, I have always used my tattoo artist’s recommendations for tattoo aftercare, but since I’ve gone sorta crunchy, I wanted to try to avoid petroleum-based products this time around. I did some research and found that even some natural ingredients (like coconut oil, tea tree essential oil and aloe vera) may draw ink out of a new tattoo; so I was very careful in choosing my ingredients. Since I’m a soap maker, I wanted to use homemade bar soap for cleaning our ink, rather than buying a…

Researchers provide evidence that a sphingolipid metabolite called sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) found in both animal food products can contribute to inflammation of the colon, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and inflammation-associated colon cancer, whereas plant-type sphingolipids called sphingadienes may protect against these conditions.

In this way science is referred to any attempt that is the result of systematic study, observation and experiment. In fact to be scientific is understood as having principles,…

    A place to relax… Bedroom is a place to relax, lie off and rest, and therefore its decorations and colors should create a peaceful and relaxing ambiance. Warm colors such as red impose excitement, dynamism and activeness while cool colors on the other hand, such as blue, and greenish blue, create calmness, stillness and passiveness. It is thus recommended to mainly use cooling colors with white or cream for the majority of the main walls of the bedroom. However it is very important not to overuse such cool colors as they might create depression or lethargy. Source / Source But although…

That’s over 49 deaths a day. Those staggering numbers are somewhat daunting.

    You already know you are much more than your Physical body, this is the only dimension of life that we can see with our physical senses. The creation is not only on the physical plane, it is at the same time on many other planes more or less dense. Our being has also dense and subtle bodies and what is going to be seen in this teaching is our Energetic field or Aura. Indeed it will represent who we really are since we are born, every emotional charge, traumas and pains will be set in this Energetic field.

    The post Hypnosis as a performance enhancer appeared first on How to Hypnotize Someone Safely. Hypnosis as a performance enhancer Hypnosis works great as a sport performance enhancer Hypnosis has been used for many years and by many people as a performance enhancer.  It makes sense.

HYPNOSIS MYTH 4: Women become sluts and sexual slaves Unfortunately, still in the year 2014 women are always at risk to be called sluts, whether they are hypnotized or not.

  • Osteopathy, The Cradle Of Craniosacral Therapy

    Andrea Hambly, N.D., Portland, Oregon
    19 Nov 2014 | 6:23 pm
    Craniosacral Therapy was conceived and developed by Dr. John E. Upledger (1932-2012) in the U.S. in the 1970’s and ’80s.  However, the principles upon which it is founded  belong squarely into the osteopathic field of the early 1900’s. Dr. John E. Upledger himself was an osteopath, having graduated from the Kirksville College of Osteopathy and Surgery in 1963.  In the 1970’s, Dr. Upledger was led to research the mystery behind the movement of the spinal cord by a very personal experience, and ultimately developed his own therapeutic system, called craniosacral…
  • Cerebrospinal Fluid Leak Prevention and Treatment

    Andrea Hambly, N.D., Portland, Oregon
    7 Nov 2014 | 9:40 pm
    Cerebrospinal fluid is the lifeline of the brain, delivering nutrients and removing metabolic toxins continuously to keep it healthy and well-functioning. The cerebrospinal fluid is contained within a three-layered membranous sac, referred to as the meninges, which covers the entire central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) as a single unit. Image Credit: OpenStax College [CC-BY-3.0]. Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leaks occur when the integrity of the meningeal sac is breached and the CSF escapes the confines of this three-layered membrane. The CSF then leaves the skull through a small…

      Benign childhood seizures, also referred to as unprovoked seizures, remain a puzzle for the medical as well as lay community.  They tend to appear in early or middle childhood, come and go for several years and then cease, for no apparent reason.  These seizures may appear during the day or at night, some only at night. Benign childhood seizures appear not to cause neural damage, hence termed benign.  However, they are scary to the child as well as the parents or caretakers/ teachers.  We fear them because they are unpredictable, uncontrollable, and we don’t know what causes…

    The gentle leader dog leash has gained great popularity among dog trainers and dog owners alike because it allows them to control even very rambunctious dogs.  Moreover, this type of dog leash is praised for being very gentle and harmless.  Not so, for a number of reasons. The leash isn’t adjusted well to accommodate the dog’s head anatomy. The leash is worn for too long a period at a time. The leash is used inappropriately. The dog has neck and head issues not known to the dog trainer or owner, or even the veterinarian. Although the leash is meant primarily to assist in the…

    I heard it when I was a kid and I still hear it now: you are what you eat. Well, as I’ve discovered over the years, this age-old phrase is sometimes right, but not always. For example, if you eat healthy fats, it’s not likely you’ll gain fat. Nevertheless, there’s one way it rings true that you’ll definitely want to know about, because it affects your brain. Before we get to that, I have to say that in broader terms, the “you are what you eat” phrase is quite true—and recent research would agree.… Read MoreThis article Calorie-Reduced Diet May Slow Down Mental Aging…
