    Aging is a hot topic these days especially with the Baby Boomer Generation reaching Medicare age! One concern that surfaces often is the care and feeding of the eyes. Our eyes are actually a direct extension of our brain having the responsibility of recognizing our environment and notifying the brain for an interpretation and discernment of safe or not safe. Care of the eye environment becomes critical as we age. Seniors enjoy many hobbies that require good eyesight like knitting and crocheting, reading, woodwork, gardening, playing musical instruments and the like. Loss of vision can have a…

    Background: Artemisia annua L. has been used for many centuries in Chinese traditional medicine. Artemisinin, the active principle was first isolated and identified in the 1970s becoming the global back bone to the fight against malaria. Our research group previously developed an economic and ecological friendly process to obtain this compound. In the pursuit to also exploit the residue generated throughout the process we further evaluated the pharmacological potential of that extract. Methods: The alcoholic crude extract after artemisinin precipitation maintained an enriched sesquiterpene…

    Run-Yue Huang
    27 Jul 2014 | 5:00 pm
    Background: Bushen-Qiangdu-Zhilv Decoction (BQZ) is one of famous traditional Chinese medical formula for treating ankylosing spondylitis (AS). However, the mechanisms underlying effects of BQZ remains unknown. Pro-inflammatory cytokines, tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha and interleukin (IL)-1, play an important role in AS. We therefore evaluated if BQZ could affect the expression of these cytokines. Methods: Crude extracts were prepared and fractioned with petroleum ether (PE), ethyl acetate (EA), n-butanol (BU) and finally water (ACE). The stability of the extracts was confirmed by…

  • 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…
  • Session Three of the Six Session Series

    Dean Ramsden
    13 Jul 2014 | 7:02 pm
    After working with your energetic boundaries, enhancing your rooting into the living planet beneath us, and work on your attachment cords to others, we turn to the functioning of your Third Chakra: mental beliefs, and the use of the mind. Pre-existing patterns of thought, held in our belief systems, often preclude our evolution, and can inhibit change. If we are unable to transform our mind the way the caterpillar changes to a butterfly, then we will remain at archaic stages of personal development. We are designed to evolve, to grow, through successive stages of transformation, until we…
  • Session Two of the Six Session Series

    Dean Ramsden
    13 Jul 2014 | 2:52 pm
    The Second Session of the Six Session Series shifts our focus to the functioning and health of the Second Chakra. This energy center governs our primary emotional development, beginning with the impact of early childhood attachment to others, and the creation of our personal feeling body. The Second Chakra is deeply wired into the enteric nervous system (your “gut” instincts), as well as how you attach to meaningful people throughout your life time. It is the basic attachment center of our human energy field; it’s how we connect and relate to others, at the feeling level. The Second…
  • Session One of the Six Session Series

    Dean Ramsden
    10 Jul 2014 | 5:00 pm
    Part One Relational Energy Healing works with a specific map of the auric energy boundary that relates specifically to chakra cord and self-cord functioning. In fact, rather than begin a Six Session Series with first chakra (Muladhara) work, we start with clearing and activating the three layers of the auric boundary, as a prelude to increasing rooting through the feet chakras (or energy gates), and then enhancing the earth prana flow up and into the lower dantien. From a charged dantien we can begin to move from chakra to chakra, and then specialize even more with chakra cords, and self…
  • Rooting and Charging

    Dean Ramsden
    8 Jul 2014 | 4:16 pm
    Part Two The second part of the Session One protocol in Relational Energy Healing begins at the the feet, adjacent to the foot chakra (or energy gates) located below the ball of each foot. Earth prana is drawn and enhanced in its natural flow up through each leg, to funnel into the pelvis at each hip joint. This energy is guided into the Lower Dantien, a reservoir of primal energies, and supported in its task of condensing or building a charge beyond its habitual state. It is this accumulation of pranic energies that will be utilized in both clearing work in the spine (Sushumna nadi), as well…

  • Interesting theory, but...

    Tina Sams
    13 Jul 2014 | 10:24 am
    There are several generally interesting and loosely held theories among herbalists.  One is the Doctrine of Signatures, in which plants resemble in some way the part of the body or organ for which they will be most helpful.  A quick example would be a walnut which, when cracked open resembles the brain and contains brain nourishing oil and nutrients.Another theory has to do with the plants that show up of their own volition, seemingly seeking you out.  I attempted to find a name for this theory, but when one Googles, "when herbs show up on their own," it is all about drug…

  • Energy Increases with Proper Nutrient Absorption

    Owen Marcus
    15 Jul 2014 | 3:04 pm
    Our bodies do a lot for us especially in the summer months when our activity level increases. In order to keep up with ourselves, it is extremely important to eat the right kinds of foods, keep well hydrated, and rest when needed to allow for recovery. If you don’t feel energized after eating, this could mean you are not digesting your foods or absorbing those vital nutrients. This then disables the cells to function properly leading to fatigue. Chronic stress, poor food choices such as too many sweets, excessive consumption of non-foods like sodas, alcohol, and processed foods, exposure to…

I know so many of us are burning both ends of the candle these days trying to fit it all in before September 1st. Prevention and pacing are the keys to injury prevention.

  • Digestion Supporting Foods – Help Clean Up Your Gut

    Owen Marcus

    Last week I shared with you the benefits of papayas and pineapples for digestive health. Digestive health is critical to everyone as proper metabolism sends all the vital nutrients we ingest to every cell in our body. Physical, mental, and emotional health all depend on nutrients that enable cells to function optimally. Pomegranates are one of the loveliest fruits I know. Yet I have always hated opening them up for the mess, the splatter of luscious red juice, and the time to peel away that inner membrane. Then a friend of mine showed that he takes all the seeds out at once and refrigerates…

    I often hear from many of my clients their concern with ongoing digestive issues.   With the onslaught of savvy marketing, so many foods entice us that are really “non-foods.” They fill us up, satisfy our taste buds, and comfort our moods, but most importantly these false foods do not nourish us or enable our cells to respond as they are designed to do. Real foods, raw foods, colorful foods, and animal meat sources responsibly grown eating their natural diets provide our bodies with the vital nutrition necessary for healthy living. Papaya is a wonderful food that begins the process of…

The simplest way to teach or describe this lesson is to explain that every act, thought, deed, and word that we create, comes back to us through this wheel”. – Kala Ambrose This is a difficult lesson for many students to embrace, for it is a major step in understanding that what you think, is not hidden, rather it is reflected all around you in your life.

    Andrea Butje
    22 Jul 2014 | 8:23 am
    One of the most frequent questions I get at Aromahead is how to safely use essential oils around babies. I have an approach to share with you that works really well! I find that using essential oils around the baby often brings about healing effects, without ever having to apply the oils to the baby’s sensitive skin. One of my favorite techniques to teach moms and dads is to apply the oils in a blend to their own backs or shoulders (not to the baby’s back), and then when they hold their baby, the healing oils are inhaled. It’s just enough! And it’s a nice way for baby and parents…

    I began to attack the weeds this morning. And then I made myself pause, breathe, and remember to take care of my body while I weeded.  I’m used to flailing myself around when I work in the garden, especially when I’m weeding.  Especially when I’m weeding the full of new weeds that I just weeded last week.

Even a pencil. What can I do to reverse this?   Dear Alex, The first step in reversing this is to care for yourself in everything you do. …

Decipher that the nagging urge, the sense of dissatisfaction of the mainstream’s notion of life, my feeling of angst, anger, sadness, fear and hopelessness is actually my Spirit longing for true expression. 3. Yearning for the spiritual path takes up all of my waking hours. 4. Decipher that the authentic explanation and embodiment of the spiritual path is not social media posts, is not “how to” books by the current media gurus promising a quick and easy path to nirvana, wealth, perfect relationship, perfect…

I received an email today from someone asking this question – I am posting our exchange as I know so many people wonder the same thing. Question: I started to work on my body (using pressure on acupoints)  and I’m not sure if my work is correct. Should I simply press the point or massage it? My response: How to work with the points is a big question! Use a combination of your linear mind to locate the point precisely, then…

The weather has been gorgeous (up until yesterday and today, which are cool, just dipping below 70 degrees, and a bit rainy). Still, it's so great to be here.One of the things that vacations like this do for me is give me time to contemplate. I love this opportunity.

    In my previous post, I was interested in testing out the new psychic healing method I had learned. And, I received requests from many volunteers to help me try it out and receive feedback (for which I'm very grateful). The sessions were good for me. They made me mediate - sometimes three times a day! I found myself recognizing when I was in "the zone" -  because this really blissful sort of happy feeling would fill me, and I'd feel disconnected from my tendency to think about stuff - I was just present, without judgement or analysis. They also helped me to try something totally…

You forget to put sunscreen on, forget to reapply, the sunscreen doesn’t work, sweat, swimming, or just too many hours, whatever it is, you end up red as a lobster.

With $2 billion in sales, there seems to be no stopping the proliferation of e-cigarettes. However, the big question remains—can it replace tobacco smoking? This seems to be the question everybody is waiting to be answered. Will it be able to help smokers quit or become a device that just maintains a smoker’s habit?

How much stress you feel and how you react to it can lead to a wide variety of health problems — and that’s why it’s critical to know what you can do about it. When stress is constant, your body remains in high gear off and on for days or weeks at a time. Although the link between stress and heart disease isn’t clear, chronic stress may cause some people to drink too much alcohol which can increase your blood pressure and may damage the artery walls.

    The article below is a reprint of an article from the New York Times HealthScience section.My husband, Richard, smoked cigarettes for 50 years, having failed several attempts to quit on his own. When a friend told him in August 1994 that hypnosis had enabled her to quit, he decided to give it a try. "It didn't work; I wasn't hypnotized," he declared after his one and only session. But it did work; since that day, he has not taken one puff of a cigarette.Gloria Kanter of Boynton Beach, Florida, thought her attempt in 1985 to use hypnosis to overcome her fear of flying had failed.

Knowing this can help us put some natural pain-relieving strategies to work when grief is threatening to pull us under. I can’t promise a way out — it seems the most enduring medicine for emotional pain is still the passage of time and…

    Clifton Park, New York’s Capital District Vitality Center news: Doing things that make you feel good regulate immune health We all like things that make us high on life — that feel-good rush after exercising, a good belly laugh, playful activities with friends, meditation, a good massage, or a loved one’s touch.

    7 Jul 2014 | 9:00 am
    If you are looking to stock your herbal medicine cabinet, nettle leaf is a staple for this purpose. The herb is considered a “spring tonic,” since that is when it is traditionally harvested and it has so many medicinal uses. It is inexpensive to buy dried nettle, but it can be harvested yourself, if you’d like (just make sure to wear gloves). If you can’t find anywhere to harvest nettle, you can plant it at home in a pot. It can be invasive when planted directly in the ground, though, and the last thing you want is a yard full of a plant that hurts when you touch…

    A little over two weeks ago, my boyfriend and I had appointments for new tattoos. 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…

    When dealing with any long term debilitation or problem, the first thing we need to look at, is how the body is performing its basic functions. This is a different approach to looking at an energy field or a body. Instead of looking at the body as made up of parts, we look at it as the result of the interaction between various functions, or ‘dances’ or programs. Its something like looking at a school as made up of- a gymnasium, a hall, classrooms, corridors, locker rooms, football courts – versus looking at a school as made up of – teachers, students, supporting staff…

    ‘Water Noise’ by M. Norman , Hungary. Blood is the distribution system or communication network of the body. Blood is around 83% water. You can imagine therefore how deeply the quality of water in our bodies impacts blood quality and everything else in the body. Blood pressure is the robustness with which blood circulates around the body. If it is too robust and bordering on frenetic, pushing into organs forcefully etc that’s high blood pressure. If it is lazy and hanging around waiting to be pushed around by the heart or physical movement, that’s low blood pressure.
