  • Herb of the Week: Chamomile

    26 Jan 2015 | 1:24 pm
    When I think of Chamomile I’m immediately transported back to my childhood (as is everyone, I think). Any night that started with nightmares, sniffles, a tummy ache, or restlessness usually ended with a cup of chamomile tea and my mother carrying a passed out Molly back to her bedroom. Those were the days…While I may not teleport in my sleep anymore, I still take chamomile. Its ability to calm anxiety and soothe stomachaches can be fantastic for children as well as women during their menstrual cycle.Chamomile’s fragrance also makes it a treat to drink. The aroma of apples makes a…

  • Arthropod steroid hormone (20-Hydroxyecdysone) suppresses IL-1ß- induced catabolic gene expression in cartilage

    Shiow-Yunn Sheu
    24 Jan 2015 | 4:00 am
    Background: In osteoarthritis (OA), the imbalance of chondrocytes? anabolic and catabolic factors can induce cartilage destruction. Interleukin-1 beta (IL-1?) is a potent pro-inflammatory cytokine that is capable of inducing chondrocytes and synovial cells to synthesize MMPs. The hypoxia-inducible factor-2alpha (HIF-2alpha, encoded by Epas1) is the catabolic transcription factor in the osteoarthritic process. The purpose of this study is to validate the effects of ecdysteroids (Ecd) on IL-1?- induced cartilage catabolism and the possible role of Ecd in treatment or prevention of early OA.

    Editor’s Note : This is the first in a series of posts by Jonathan Edwards about the use of the Yijing (I Ching) in Chinese medicine clinical practice. A new topic for the site – it should be an interesting read! Part 1: The Clinician’s Golden Compass Welcome to the first in a series of articles on applying the Yijing in clinical practice.

  • Why I spend all my time up to my eyeballs in Chinese medicine

    Eric Grey
    19 Jan 2015 | 12:00 pm
    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…
  • Introducing Chinese Medicine Central (the evolution of Deepest Health)

    Eric Grey
    5 Jan 2015 | 3:43 pm
    I started Deepest Health in 2007 as a second year student at National College of Natural Medicine (NCNM). I am a person who learns by writing and by teaching, and a blog seemed an ideal way to do both, while also building a potential resource for patients. As it developed, I realized that I wasn’t that interested in writing for patients (though I’ve warmed up to the idea in the last 5 years), but instead found real happiness in discussing various aspects of the medicine with my peers and with practitioners all over the world. After graduation, I decided to experiment with…
  • Book Review: The Moon over Matsushima – an exhaustive look into moxibustion

    Cintain 昆游龍
    30 Oct 2014 | 9:00 am
    Books about moxibustion are few and far between. Up until very recently, I wasn’t aware of any books that covered the topic separately that weren’t just poor translations of Chinese clinical manuals. My dear friend and colleague, @bravethevoid, turned me on to “The Moon Over Matsushima”, Merlin Young’s incredibly refreshing, exhaustively researched, and inspiring take on moxibustion, and after considerable effort (keep reading), I was able to finish it. Here’s some of my thoughts on it, I hope they inspire you to read the book and milk it for all the…

    The number one question I get asked in my sessions with clients is, "What is my Purpose?"

    1 Jan 2015 | 2:25 am
    Years ago, before my studies of energy healing, my first reaction to a barbell dropping onto my right toe would have been anger and blame towards myself, for allowing it to happen. But now I know (at least on a good day) not to call myself hateful names for being unable to avoid the experience of an injury, nor to lash out at the inanimate object that had caused the damage. Injuries are not mistakes; they are learning experiences. Often brutal, but usually necessary for us to grow and evolve as sentient beings. My unexpected injury started out innocently enough, provoking an hour of…

  • Session Five of the Six Session Series

    Dean Ramsden
    12 Aug 2014 | 3:06 pm
    In every fifth session of a Six Session Series we move our attention to the act of speaking, and of listening. The way we express ourselves through sonic reality defines how others respond to us as much as our appearance and physical bearing. The sound of our voices, and the words we use, create an ambiance, an invited experience, in all our relationships. If I am unclear in my intentions to others, or mask my real needs in the language of compliance, my voice will not support a positive outcome in any relationship. I will also have to learn the social graces and strategies necessary in adult…
  • Session Four of the Six Session Series

    Dean Ramsden
    8 Aug 2014 | 2:52 pm
    The fourth session in the Six Session Series brings our attention to two aspects of the same relational function of caring and long-term emotional connection. It begins by focussing on our self-care, and on concern or nurturing connections to others. As the largest of the six major chakras, Anahata chakra is intensely relational, extending the function of its own self-care system out towards others. It is therefore the foundational energy center that deals with empathy and mutuality, as what is within us is then empathically relayed to others who are significant to us (as well as to other…
  • Sympathetic Resonance Energy Healing

    Dean Ramsden
    16 Jul 2014 | 3:01 pm
    One of the most helpful energy healing skills available to us to help people is sympathetic resonance energy healing. This is where the resonance of a known healing agent is energetically “copied” and then resonated to the client, either in-person or over any distance. For example, the analgesic resonance of Arnica can be energetically “memorized” by the energy healer and then transmitted to the energy field of the client so as to help reduce the client’s pain. If a more powerful effect is needed, the healer can resonate and transmit Lidocaine-like frequences. So, how is this skill…

    Owen Marcus
    28 Jan 2015 | 6:32 am
    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…
  • A Lovely Head of Hair Takes Care

    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…

    Not long ago I had a conversation with a friend about the importance of washing our food. She was surprised to learn I wash my raw meats – not just rinse them off. I explained to her that I don’t know where the meat really came from, who handled it in its packaging, did the wrapper have a cold, not wash hands after visiting the bathroom, drop it on the floor and then wrap it up.   While foods look pretty under grocery store lights, I don’t know who previously fingered through the bins with germy hands touching any selection I might make. . I feel soap and water at least lessens any…

The latest occurrence happened on Christmas Eve when I received a message from a mom desperate to find help for her daughter who had acute severe Vertigo. For those of you who have never had Vertigo, my patients tell me it is not something that you don’t want to “wait out” as physicians often suggest; I think largely because they are unaware that there IS help out there.

  • What are Top, Middle, and Base Notes?

    Andrea Butje
    26 Jan 2015 | 2:00 am
    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…

    Andrea Butje
    19 Jan 2015 | 2:00 am
    A warm, floral aromatherapy bath salt recipe for cold nights! I love warm baths during cold weather. They are so comforting! I especially enjoy adding nourishing bath salts to my water. High quality healing salts can help repair your skin after it’s exposed to harsh weather, and protect it the next time you go out. Here’s one of my favorite aromatherapy bath salt recipes for winter. It’s a warm floral blend. I make it with pink Himalayan salt, which has a particularly high mineral content skin loves, but you can use any natural salt that you prefer. You can use any grain (fine, small,…

It’s got rich coniferous notes and when you breathe in, you can just feel the camphoraceous Ravintsara and bright Lemon opening up your sinuses. You can drop these essential oils right into an electric aromatherapy diffuser: 5 drops Siberian Fir (Abies siberica) 3 drops Ravintsara (Cinnamomum camphora ct. 1,8 cineole) 4 drops Lemon (Citrus limon) This aromatherapy diffuser blend for colds and flu is helpful, because Siberian Fir and Ravintsara have airborne antimicrobial…

  • How “Sensing Qi” can transform your massage or bodywork practice

    Cindy Black, L.Ac., LMT
    22 Jan 2015 | 6:53 am
    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…

    Cindy Black, L.Ac., LMT
    15 Jan 2015 | 4:48 am
    I’ve been reading a book that I wish I had found years ago. The words speak directly to me only, filling in gaps in my knowledge and curiosity. So I became agitated, “why didn’t someone tell me about this book last year – when I really needed it?” In my mind I hear the repeating lines: “everything in its own time”, “don’t push the river”, “go with the flow”. Yeah, yeah – that’s great for everyone else, but why didn’t someone tell me about the precious book a few years ago?  Why does it take me so long…
  • How to know if you are on an acupoint.

    Cindy Black, L.Ac., LMT
    9 Jan 2015 | 9:57 am
    Acupoints are placed on a meridian where the Qi (“chee”) can be contacted. This a relatively simple sentence, yet a difficult notion to comprehend and take action on. First, we must understand what Qi is. The word Qi comes to us from ancient China. There is no easy equivalent of this term in English. We call it “energy”, “breath”, “life force”, “that which animates the body-mind”, “the steam from cooking rice”. Is this clarifying the term for you? My simplified version of Qi is that it is the “thing” that it…

    Tropical Milkweed Another lesson from my garden: I was going to go buy more milkweed plants for the monarch butterflies who are camping out in my yard. But I kept thinking of all of the milkweed plants I had put into the ground last year. I went searching for them, and found dozens with tiny leaves unfurling.  They have been dormant for months, but are now ready to grow again. It’s been dry lately. So I started watering these budding milkweeds. “Water what you already have.” This is going to be my motto for 2015. The post Water what you already have appeared first on Big…
  • Less effort and better results with meridian massage

    Cindy Black, L.Ac., LMT
    26 Dec 2014 | 10:07 am
    Hands-on healing is hard work! At least that was my mind set when I began my career in Massage Therapy. I used trigger point therapy, deep tissue therapy, connective tissue therapy, Shiatsu, and active isolated stretching within my practice of sport massage therapy.  My clients were feeling great…I was getting sore and tired. At one point my wrists hurt so badly that the only way I was able to keep practicing was by getting constant massage and adjustments from my good friend (who was also a great Chiropractor). She generously worked with me every few days. Fast forward to today……

  • Find A Way To Make Your Training Succeed

    15 Jan 2015 | 11:18 pm
    Testosterone is a crucial hormone for men. Not only because it determines their sexual activity, as well as efficiency, but because it plays a vital role in bodybuilding as well. It has been proven that, if sufficient amounts are secreted into your blood flow, you can increase your actual potential for developing more muscle mass. Testosterone unlocks greater potential Testosterone is a hormone, secreted by the testicles. While women also gain a small amount of this hormone through their ovaries, men’s supplies of this hormone are up for a stunning 60%. It means that you already have…

    If you are going down the road of bodybuilding, you should prepare carefully before you go after your dream. While it may seem simple at first glance, the mass of muscles you can achieve isn’t going to become real only by exercising. Your own effort is what counts, if certain criteria are met It is true, the exercises you do are going to play a large role in allowing you to reach your optimal state faster, but if you don’t take care of the accompanying issues, you will find that your training may not be as fruitful as it should be. Testosterone is affecting your success rates in training…
  • Train And Work Hard To Get To Your Results With Some Help

    15 Jan 2015 | 11:16 pm
    Training in order to achieve a greater muscle mass is no walk in the park. Every serious bodybuilder knows this to be true. In fact, it gets harder with the years which come. While most men don’t realize this, the testosterone levels in their bodies are the main factor in their ability to work out properly. The clock of life may tick away As you know, when a man gets older, his testosterone levels automatically start decreasing. So, it is safe to assume that, with increased age, it will get much harder to achieve the effects of a lean muscle mass. It won’t be impossible to do, but it will…

No matter how hard you train, you still may be unable to see any of the notable effects unless you look into a very important thing. Make sure you train only when it counts Your testosterone levels are there to determine the amount of muscle mass you can develop. If you go past the limit, there will be no effects to note, as it would simply be impossible for your body to go past that mark.

    26 Jan 2015 | 10:09 am
    The Paleo Diet–the real food way of eating that seeks to imitate the way our hunter-gatherer ancestors ate–has been getting a lot of press recently, both good and bad. People who “go paleo” report everything from significant weight loss to reversing or controlling many chronic conditions from asthma to autoimmune and depression. But dieticians and nutritionists warn it’s too restrictive and hard to follow, such that people can’t stick with it long term. So, how do you get the benefits of “going paleo” without becoming overwhelmed and overly rigid in…

    New Year’s Eve. Nineteen ninety one. I was at the Queensryche concert in Portland, Oregon. My last chemotherapy treatment was the day after Christmas. Those last few sessions, I would get nauseous on the way up the hill to Oregon Health & Science University. My body seemed to know the grade, the twists of that road, and begin to react, knowing what was in store. For years, I would begin to get queasy any time I’d visit a friend at OHSU. The body remembers in a way different from the mind. It’s a physiologic, visceral memory. A confirmation that consciousness is not…

    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!

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…

Sure, artificial sweeteners like sucralose, saccharine, and aspartame save on calories, but a recent Israeli study shows they can skew the composition of gut bacteria, or our microbiome  in a way that promotes obesity and diabetes.  We’re increasingly learning about the trillions of bacteria that live in the…

However, did you ever stop to wonder just where those pounds go when you lose them? Turns out most experts don’t know either, and the answer may surprise you. Most people think that when we burn fat it creates heat and energy, but that’s not true.

    What can neuroscience tell us about mindfulness meditation? Can it, as some people suggest, improve our capacity to change and adapt in stressful situations? And why does a recent article from Harvard Business Review assert that practicing mindfulness is essential to effective leadership? Of course, we all want to change. To become better versions of ourselves. The aspiration to grow, learn, and change is as natural for human beings as trees reaching toward the sun.

Do you know how long it takes for any new behavior to become a bona-fide habit? And technically, what does that even mean? My guess is that you’ve tried to meditate before. Maybe even a few times. But “life happens” and other things rise to the top of your priority list. Meditation gets bumped. Life is like that. No question about it. And of course, meditation was first developed almost 3,000 years ago when life was much simpler. Time moved…

    People are more successful in taking up healthy habits if their partner makes positive changes too, according to research published in JAMA Internal Medicine. Scientists at UCL funded by Cancer Research UK, the British Heart Foundation, and the National Institute on Aging looked at how likely people were to quit smoking, start being active, or lose weight in relation to what their partner did. They found that people were more successful in swapping bad habits for good ones if their partner made a change as well.

    High protein diets have gotten a lot of attention in the past decade, especially with the social popularity of the Atkins diet. However, much research shows the harmful effects on the body from consuming a high protein diet. From a recent study published in the journal Cell Metabolism, researchers discovered that the risk of dying from any cause was increased by 74% simply from eating a high-protein diet during middle age compared to eating a low-protein diet, and the risk of dying from cancer increased more than four times. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,…

    Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, found that exposure to cold temperatures increases levels of a newly discovered protein that is critical for the formation of brown fat, the type of fat in our bodies that generates heat. With extended exposure to cold air, the protein, called transcription factor Zfp516, also helps the more abundant white fat in our bodies — the kind that stores excess energy — become more similar to brown fat in its ability to burn energy. The researchers found that mice with boosted levels of the Zfp516 protein gained 30 percent less weight…

    The Secret is in the Heart! Being likable doesn’t have a fixed standard. It varies from culture to culture and person to person. There are people with whom we connect more, even from the first look; and naturally these are the ones who vibrate with us. They like what we like and they share similar opinions with us. Definition of likability is therefore very subjective and it lies mainly on how we live our lives, our family values, perceptions, cultural beliefs, and even our gender. Though likability is something very personal, experiences prove that there are some behavioral patterns…

  • Home Remedies to Grow back Receding Gums

    26 Jan 2015 | 7:14 pm
    Receding gums, as the name itself suggests, occurs when the gum tissue around your teeth wear away and the gums seem to recede backwards making a larger area of the surface of tooth more visible. When your gums recede, it gives rise to gaps between your teeth and gum line. This makes it easy for bacteria to build up and survive there. If you do not contain receding gums, even the root of teeth may become exposed which can then cause pain making your teeth extremely sensitive. Not only this, due to the damage caused to the supporting tissue and bone structures of your teeth, you may eventually…

This causes the skin to grow over the nail and thus it is called ingrown fingernail. While any of your fingernails can become ingrown, the…
  • Natural Laxatives That Are Really Helpful to Relieve Constipation

    11 Jan 2015 | 10:25 pm
    If you often suffer from constipation, you are, most probably aware of laxatives. In fact, you might know about some quick fix laxatives that you buy from drugstores. But did you know that a laxative can be anything- a food, a drink, some oil, a compound and not only the medication that induces bowel movements. A laxative loosens the stool. Any natural thing which loosens stool can be called natural laxative.

At long last with extreme seriousness Medical Scientists are studying the Brain, for too long separation of the Mind from the Body has ruled our medical thinking? In part thanks to Rene Descartes dualism. Can we therefore consider; Gridlines are but a memory – switch of the memory and they no longer exist.
