  • What Happened When I Reintroduced Wheat

    World Vitae
    21 May 2015 | 8:38 am
    Here’s my experience of eating wheat again on a (nearly) daily basis after 3 years of consuming it less than 3 times per month. The Backstory About 3 years ago, I was encouraged to try the Paleo diet (what is the Paleo diet?). It took a number of fits and starts, a lot of reading and research, and some major changes at home, but eventually I made the full transition. For the first couple of years, I stuck to the Paleo-Primal template pretty closely: lots of vegetables, meat–as devotedly grassfed and pastured as I could, large quantities of fats like coconut oil, some fruits,…

    19 May 2015 | 2:28 pm
    Many people who have been diagnosed with cancer use complementary health approaches. According to the 2007 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), which included a comprehensive survey on the use of complementary health approaches by Americans, 65 percent of respondents who had ever been diagnosed with cancer had used complementary approaches.

    Here’s the next in my 30 day series – a month of no hiding. For much of my own career running a Chinese medicine based business, I was afflicted with an exceedingly common and damaging problem. This problem strikes such a huge percentage of people who start an acupuncture clinic or related business, I’m always surprised how seldom I hear people talking about it. Quite simply, I was afflicted with a loss of consciousness around key aspects of my business. This lack of awareness had formed around more systematic aspects of my finances, as well as the critical role that…

    Eric Grey

    This is the 3rd/30 days on my month of no hiding. A little late in the evening, but done! At Watershed Wellness, my clinic, I nearly always see one patient at a time. Only in very rare situations do I have two acupuncture tables running at once, usually because patients were late or there was an emergency. I find that for the kind of work I do, paying full attention to one patient for a significant period of time gives me the best chance to treat them effectively. I know people who practice similarly to me. But, I know folks who see more patients per hour than that, some many more! On group…

    The kids were all around today, so we took the opportunity to visit Shenk's Ferry Wildflower Preserve.  As you look at the photos I took as we walked (and oh did I ever miss the drifts of bluebells, the squirrel corn, the dutchman's breeches, and a tiny bright yellow bloom that I'm certain is related to the other Dicentras), know that many are fighting to save this from being defiled by a high pressure pipeline that will not in any way benefit our area, or probably even the U.S.  It's hard to imagine taking this beauty so for granted.  Acres and acres packed with so many lovely…

    I recently began suffering a skin condition referred to as contact dermatitis. This is not contagious, just annoying to me.   My dermatologist felt I had developed an allergy to the massage oil I had been using for several years (my multiple exposures each day overtaxed my system from too much of one thing). This was confusing for me as my massage oil is organic and herbal. I do understand that too much of one thing can bring on an allergic reaction. So I changed oils many times only to have the same ongoing condition with my skin. I then thought it might be brought on by a food allergy.

    The sun is finally out and we are all excited to be outside and in our gardens. With the oncoming summer weather, the time to take precautions for our skin health is upon us as well. Our skin is a mighty organ protecting us from all sorts of onslaughts. It protects us from bacterial invasion, many kinds of injuries by forming scabs, alerts us to temperature changes by cooling us with sweating or dilating our blood vessels to retain heat when we need it, producing melanin, a skin pigment protecting us from UV radiation, and notifying the immune system warriors when anything goes amiss. We shed…

    Our American lifestyles find many people “running on empty” from juggling too many responsibilities for the length of their days. Home, family, garden, employment, friends, pets, sports and arts programs, and maybe even parent care all add up to major stress. This can cause fatigue, depression, a sense of never catching up, self-doubt as well as self-recrimination leading to guilt. Further side effects may be mood swings, lack of libido, and in extreme cases an inability to redirect oneself. These symptoms may be signs that you suffer from adrenal fatigue. Our adrenal glands provide us…

    Last week we discussed the underlying causes of hip pain. Now let’s talk about how to prevent, and possibly reverse, hip pain. If you missed the previous article, go to The incidence of total hip replacement (THR) in the U.S. is increasing[i]. To date, 2.5 million people in the U.S. have had THR surgeries.[ii] We are getting tighter, more stressed, and more inflamed. To reverse these trends, we first need to change our lifestyles and realize we just don’t wake up one morning needing a hip replaced. Hips don’t go bad because the muscles are weak. They go…
  • Part 1: Your Hip Is Not a Tire

    Owen Marcus
    16 Apr 2015 | 9:21 am
    The incidence of hip replacements has increased. These days, getting a hip replaced is like getting a new set of tires in the minds of many people. But at an average cost of more than $30,000, and with insurance coverage decreasing, now we have a financial incentive not to see a vital joint as a replaceable car part.[i] For the most part, hips fail because of a progression of treatable situations. Osteoarthritis can cause pain and limited motion. Osteoporosis of the hip causes weak bones that break easily. Alarmingly, both of those conditions are becoming more prevalent in younger people. As…

    Infusion Pitcher When I teach about how to clear, cleanse and restore the aura, I mention seven techniques which were used in the ancient healing temples to help people heal at the mind, body and spirit level. Their techniques included restoring and rejuvenating the aura energy fields using fresh fruits and vegetables.  In my Activate Your Aura Course, I share how colors, foods, crystals and natural elements enhance the aura and how becoming aware of the emotional and mental state can enhance or deflate the aura. One of the techniques to activate your aura is to work with color and surround…

    I don’t remember when I first heard the term “psychic”.   In my world, it had always been referred to by different names.   I grew up in Louisiana, where people who had this abilitywere referred to as people who:- had the sight- had the gift- knew things- walked with spiritMy parents realized early on that I had this ability and it wasn’t a surprise to them as others in my family had similar gifts including my grandfather and my great-grandmother who supported her family reading tea leaves and tarot cards.  My mother also had these abilities and over time, I’ve seen that…

    Andrea Butje

    The best essential oils for bruises Do you bruise easily? I have a friend who is always walking into the corner of her coffee table, and so her lower legs always seem to be black and blue. If this sounds familiar, I have a recipe for you! Instead of getting rid of your coffee table, just keep a few essential oils for bruises on hand—Helichrysum (Helichrysum italicum) and Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia). You’re probably aware of Lavender’s affinity for skin and healing—you can use it for almost any kind of wound (physical or emotional). It helps cells to repair themselves and…
  • What is jojoba? Learn all about this amazing carrier!

    I use jojoba in a lot of aromatherapy recipes. It is so familiar to me, it feels like a friend. But the other day I heard someone ask, “What is a jojoba?” And I realized that maybe it’s not as familiar to everyone else as it is to me! So I thought it would be a good idea to talk a little about jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis). We often say “jojoba oil,” but jojoba is actually a liquid wax. So if we say “jojoba wax,” just know that they are the same thing. Because it’s a natural wax, it never goes rancid. It nourishes skin and absorbs well, and it doesn’t stain clothes. I…

    Cindy Black, L.Ac., LMT

    The eyes are the flower of the Liver. Every Organ has a sense organ, or “flower”, as the ancient Chinese texts so beautifully express the energetic connections between body, mind and spirit. Blurry vision, dry eyes, or itchy eyes – these physical symptoms all point to the Liver Organ System. Because Classical Chinese medicine maintains the wholeness of our body-mind-spirit, the Liver Organ System also relates to our ability to hold a vision, or goal, for our future. What is your vision for yourself, what are you aiming to achieve? These central life questions are connected…
  • [Less Pain + More Energy] Using these 3 Simple Movements to Open the Gallbladder Meridian

    Cindy Black, L.Ac., LMT
    14 May 2015 | 10:24 am
    The Gallbladder meridian tends to have blocks that restrict the flow of energy (Qi). When Qi (“chee”) flow is restricted, we feel pain, tension, or restricted movement in the area of the blockage.  Similar to traffic backing up at a site of road construction, Qi can back up within a blocked meridian. And just like the frustration that builds up in a traffic jam, pain, frustration, anger and restricted motion can result from backed up, stagnant Qi, within a meridian. The Gallbladder meridian happens to be very prone to blockages. The Gallbladder meridian runs from the eyes, along…
  • What is Dao Yin?

    Cindy Black, L.Ac., LMT
    7 May 2015 | 6:15 am
    Dao Yin is an ancient movement practice from China. This is a reconstruction of a ‘Guiding and Pulling Chart’ excavated from the Mawangdui Tomb 3 (sealed in 168BC) in the former kingdom of Changsha. The original is in the Hunan Provincial Museum, Changsha, China. (1) The words “Dao Yin” in this context mean “guiding” and “leading or pulling”. Dao Yin practice differs from Qi Gong (another form of exercise from China) in a few ways: The intention of Dao Yin is to forcefully clear stagnation out of the body tissues and meridians, whereas Qi Gong…

    Cindy Black, L.Ac., LMT

    The Wood Element is a time of explosive growth. Spring is the season of the Wood Element. We use the same energy that seeds use to sprout up through the hard dirt towards the sun, to move ourselves toward our goals and dreams. That energy is “Wood energy”. Wood energy is forceful and moves up and out like the branches of a tree spreading and reaching. Spring is bursting forth in the northern hemisphere. Now is a very good time to give yourself extra space to expand, to grow your ideas and dreams. We usually don’t notice how much force we use to take a step until we stub our…

    What is Mindfulness? MIND·FUL·NESS noun a mental state achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, used as a therapeutic technique. Nursing is all about therapeutic techniques. BUT nurses are all too often overwhelmed with tasks which bring their minds to a state of stress and anxiety. Overwhelm. Practicing mindfulness immediately helps to calm the anxious mind and make the nurse more present in her own body/mind. This presence allows for a safer, focused interaction with…

It took a number of fits and starts, a lot of reading and research, and some major changes at home, but eventually I made the full transition. For the first couple of years, I stuck to the Paleo-Primal template pretty closely: lots of vegetables, meat–as devotedly grassfed and pastured as I could, large quantities of fats like coconut oil, some fruits,…

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. This conundrum of seasonally increased hunger caused me to reflect on my earlier…

    4 May 2015 | 12:00 am
    Over the past couple of years, coconut oil has transformed from a saturated fat laden demon to a must-have ingredient in every health-conscious foodie’s pantry. But long before the recent coconut oil obsession, it was used for health and beauty in tropical regions around the world. If you’ve ever used coconut oil, you’ve probably noticed one unique property: it melts on contact with the skin.  So while it can be solid in the jar (at least here in the cool temps of London!), it melts almost instantly as you apply it on the skin, making it perfect as a face or body…

    That gentle, spring, powdery scent of fresh violets.  It’s an old-fashioned smell.  It reminds me of powdery old-lady kisses and victorian valentines and heavily-curtained, doily-covered sitting rooms. But violets also remind me of spring.  That first burst of gentle spring, where you can’t quite believe that these delicate flowers are actually pushing up through the so-recently-frozen grass. Fast-forward to modern times. The tricky thing about wildflowers with a short season, like violets, is how to preserve their wonderful scent and properties to last for the year.  (Fact:…
  • An early spring forage in London

    If you live in chillier climes (say, the North Eastern United States) where you’re still fully in winter’s grasp, let me apologize in advance for this overly optimistic, springy, green post. Despite my regular comments about the gray English weather – Spring is officially underway here in London.  It’s such a relief after months of gray drizzle to see bursts of green along the sidewalks and in the parks, little sprouts of prickly nettles along the Thames, carpets of violets dotted with tall yellow daffodils and my favorite masses of sticky green cleavers.  I think…

    Hypnosis Health Notes

  • A Practical Guide to Hypnosis, Part 3

    5 May 2015 | 2:06 pm
    Can YOU Be Hypnotized?Research has found that all persons who are of sane mind and have an IQ of more than 70 can be hypnotized. People who have mental problems do not qualify for the same. Old people (the senile) are hard to hypnotize but if they have the desire to hypnotized, they can be taken through the process.What does this mean?  It means that the saying is true--"all hypnosis is self hypnosis."  Because one of the prevailing myths about hypnosis is that it's something that someone (a 'hypnotist') does to someone else.  Like I could kiss you, or punch you, or hypnotize…
  • A practical guide to hypnosis, part 1

    What is hypnosis? Debate about hypnosis has been around for ages. Some say it doesn’t work, some even say it’s evil, while others think it’s the best way to overcome a wide variety of issues.There's debate about what hypnosis is.  Some things we know:  we can observe brainwaves while people are in hypnosis, and see that hypnosis has some commonalities from that standpoint with other mental states, such as daydreaming.  So, can people create healing states while daydreaming?  If hypnosis is a natural state that our minds move in and out of naturally throughout…

    After studying dieting for 20 years, a researcher concluded diets simply don’t work, a fact countless Americans have spent 20-plus years of their own lives validating. Why? Dieting is constructed around faulty principles that defy human biology and psychology. The “calories in versus calories out” model fails to account for hormonal shifts during weight loss, the psychological consequences of deprivation, and the futility of willpower when it comes to eating. In a nutshell, the human body has mechanisms in place designed to compensate for starvation. Three things that cause diets to…

    Silence is one of the great arts of conversation. ~Marcus Tullius Cicero Do you pay attention to silence? Have you ever noticed that silence is all around us all the time? I believe silence is one of our most undervalued natural resources. And it’s more or less inexhaustible. And I don’t mean that figuratively. I was surprised to learn that the country of Finland exports silence as part of its national brand. In an article called This Is Your Brain on Silence, Daniel Gross describes how the nation of Finland developed a branding report that included silence as one of its national…

Many older people have small areas of damage in their brains seen on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as white matter hyperintensities.

    Chemotherapy will never be the cure of cancer. Cancer will only heal when the toxic load is decreased, an internal biochemical environment is achieved that only produces health and not disease and the mental and emotional toxins are released. When you get the chemicals and toxins (physical as well as mental and emotional) out of the body and the proper nutrients in, along with living a lifestyle of seven basic steps to total health (which include proper oxygen, water, food, sleep, exercise, fasting/detoxification and learning to live fully in the moment), then cancer and all disease can heal.
