    This issue of the digest summarizes current scientific evidence about yoga for health conditions, including chronic low-back pain, asthma, and arthritis. The scientific evidence to date suggests that a carefully adapted set of yoga poses may help reduce pain and improve function in people with chronic low-back pain. Studies also suggest that practicing yoga (as well as other forms of regular exercise) might confer other health benefits such as reducing heart rate and blood pressure, and may also help alleviate anxiety and depression. Other research suggests yoga’s deep breathing is…

    Do you feel embarrassed when someone compliments you? If you do, then you should start feeling good about compliments coming your way. Studies reveal that our genetic memory has wired our brains to focus more on negative instead of positive experiences. For example, if you wear a new dress to a party and you get […]The post Train Your Brain To Feel Good! appeared first on Nirogam - The Natural Way to Health.

    Woosuk Kim
    30 Oct 2014 | 5:00 pm
    Background: Dendropanax morbifera Leveille is used in herbal medicine as a cancer treatment. In this study, we investigated the effects of Dendropanax morbifera stem extract (DMS) on cadmium (Cd) excretion from the blood and kidney and brain tissues of rats exposed to cadmium, as well as the effects of DMS on oxidative stress and antioxidant levels in the hippocampus after Cd exposure. Methods: Seven-week-old Sprague-Dawley rats were exposed to 2 mg/kg of cadmium by intragastric gavage and were orally administered 100 mg/kg of DMS for 4 weeks.

    Rahul Bakshi
    30 Oct 2014 | 5:00 pm
    Background: Previous data indicate that purified components of ginseng can inhibit HIV reverse transcriptase in vitro, suggesting that ginseng components in plasma may interfere with HIV-1 RNA detection assays. Methods: Pre- and post-dose plasma from three volunteers dosed with 3000 mg American ginseng was spiked with HIV and analyzed by the Roche COBAS Ampliprep/Taqman v2.0 HIV-1 RNA assay. Results: Presence of American ginseng had no significant effect on measured HIV-1 RNA concentration. Variation within pre- and post-dose plasma pair was insignificant and within assay performance limits.

    Background: This study evaluated the impact of Vernonia amygdalina (VA) on the transcription of key enzymes involved in cellular modulation of glucose in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats in a bid to understand the possible anti-diabetic mechanism of VA. Methods: The chloroform fraction of VA (200 mg/kg and 400 mg/kg body weight) was administered to SDRs for 7 and 14 days. Thereafter, the expression (transcription) of key carbohydrate regulatory genes was evaluated in selected tissues - adipose, muscle and liver.

    29 Oct 2014 | 5:00 pm
    Background: The inclusion of prayer-for-health (PFH) in the definition of complementary alternative medicine (CAM) has resulted in higher levels of CAM use. The objective of this study was to assess PFH and CAM use among breast cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. Methods: A cross-sectional study was performed at two chemotherapy providers. Patients were questioned about use of three categories of CAM, mind-body practices (MBPs), natural products (NPs) and traditional medicine (TM). PFH was also examined separately from CAM to better characterise the patterns of CAM and PFH used during…

    Background: Functional constipation (FC) is a common gastrointestinal disorder (FGIDs) which has a major impact on the quality of life. Acupuncture is widely used as an alternative and complementary medicine (CAM) for FC, but the available evidence of its effectiveness is scarce. Therefore, we will perform a randomized controlled trial to determine whether acupuncture improves symptom and quality of life in FC patients more effectively than sham acupuncture or gastrointestinal prokinetic agent. This article will report the protocol of the trial. Methods: The current trial is a multicenter,…

  • 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…
  • 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…

    9 Oct 2014 | 1:51 pm
    Yes, yet another thing to do with KALE! In a small fit of inspiration, I tore up a few fistfuls of baby Red Russian, and tossed ‘em int0 the pot with carrots, onions, grass-fed beef shank, salt, pepper, garlic and water, slow-cooked for quite a while, six hours or more, adding brown rice towards the end. Voila, Beef and Kale Stew. The kale contributes just a hint of seaweed taste, but maybe that’s just me. Anyhow, excellent. Will do again. Beef meets kale

In any case, here we are once again, this time around with lettuce mix and a bit of arugula from the unheated greenhouse, and baby kale from overwintered plants in the field. Nice day!

    Continuing snowy white and frigid outside, and if it weren’t for the handy neighborhood supermarket, the last thing you’d be thinking about around here right now is fresh orange juice. The reality is, there’s plenty of it, legally speaking, at least: aseptic storage and flavor packs aside, fresh not frozen, not from concentrate, pulpy or pulp free OJ is in abundance, now as ever, and often on special, too! Fresh as it gets!

    [From 5-May-2012] Fresh sweet corn at the beginning of May?! Wow, it’s a miracle! After a period of mild outrage when I first started tiny farming, as it sunk in how far and in what conditions most of our fresh food travels, the knee-jerk negative reaction to the sight of long distance food at the supermarket, and especially at the farmers’ market via the big resellers, thankfully faded away. Automatic anger is a waste of energy that could be put to better uses (weeding comes to mind). So seeing corn in big bins at the store as if it’s fresh from the field down the road,…

Along with having to maintain my home, yard and garden, a business, and beginning a new business as well as keeping up with my studies and nutrition research, I find my time is taken up with all these activities. It has come to my attention that I am out of sync with an appropriate “schedule” that enables me to better manage my time.

    “Men who were subjected to ‘nagging’, constant demands and worries from their partners, were 2.5 times as likely to die within ten years than those with less stressful relationships.”[1] Why do women nag? They often nag because their partner is not living up to his commitment to her or himself. What was once a passionate relationship devolved to a nagfest. Men can be emotionally open in the courting phase of the relationship. It’s not just that we are playing our best game because we want something; it’s also because challenge and change encourages us to risk. In the case…

    Yoga and aromatherapy share a common goal–that of naturally, gently, restoring a person’s balance and health. Maybe that’s why they have a long history of working together. Essential oils affect us quickly, and they affect us deeply. Essential oils can be such powerful tools, especially in conjunction with yoga, as we connect with our bodies in deep, holistic, strengthening ways. Preparing for Your Practice Some yoga studios don’t allow the use of aromatherapy during yoga classes. Scents can linger in a space after the class is over, and what one person finds soothing, another may…

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…

    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…
  • The 21st century cancer survivor’s breakfast: mixed vegetable sauté and fried egg

    Hamid Shibata Bennett, LMT, CAMT
    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…

    Cancer survivorship truly means good eating. These days, I tend to eat less grain, less gluten, less sugar. I feed my body with good quality protein and more and more vegetables. I primarily buy organic and prefer local produce whenever possible. I take every opportunity to improvise in the kitchen. What ingredients are in the fridge? This morning, I pulled out some baby bok choy, yellow squash, garlic, kale, a wee tomato and an egg. Here’s my Sunday morning foodie adventure, snapped with the Fujifilm X-T1 and 56mm, f/1.2 lens. From my kitchen to yours… Enjoy! I began my…

    She sat cross legged on the side of the road. Her name was Sunrise. Her name tattooed on her left wrist. Said she was an alcoholic. Said she was Apache. Sunrise was lost. Shat herself. Sipping a can of Silver Bullet. She asked me the way to the river. I held out a hand. The pups flanked her and provided a furry surface to guide her shaky form up. Her walk was unsteady. I told her to get her feet underneath and breath into the belly. Sunrise queried, “Into the diaphragm?” “Yep.” “I’m a smart girl.” “Yep. I know.” She apologized for her…

  • Did stress push you off the healthy habits wagon? How to get back on track

    Dr. Richard Herbold
    28 Oct 2014 | 2:22 pm
    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…

    Clifton Park, New York’s Capital District Vitality Center news: Combined these supplements work better than alone When it comes to battling inflammation and autoimmunity, research shows resveratrol and curcumin work better when taken together than separately. Supplemental resveratrol is derived from Japanese knotweed and the compound is also found in the skin of red grapes. Curcumin is derived from the curry spice turmeric. Both are well known for their antioxidant, inflammation-quenching qualities when taken in therapeutic doses — simply eating curry or drinking wine are not going to…

We all know that there are huge industries devoted to taking care of your physical fitness, your diet, and your appearance. And those things are important and have a big effect on your quality of life. But your awareness is more primary than any of those things.

Having a reason to get out of bed is a huge motivational force to live life, and this is good for your health.

Urbanization and civilization has given birth to modernism which has come with its fair challenges in how the society has been shaped up.

The mice displayed fewer of the warning signs linked to diabetes, such as abnormal glucose levels and resistance to insulin.

    21 Oct 2014 | 11:03 am
    Ayahuasca effects are different from an individual to another because the Medicine reacts according to ones personal traits. First the Shaman will bless the healing circle and then the brew in order to reactivate it. Every participant will receive a cup of Ayahuasca and drink it after greeting the Shaman. The Ayahuasca effects will start after more or less 20 minutes, participants will  start to hear a buzz noise and feel as if they elevates themselves very fast in an elevator. The senses will start to be more sensitive and receive subtle signals, some people will be able to hear sounds…

  • Managing sexual energy

    18 Sep 2014 | 7:32 pm
    Managing sexual energy is a subject that has always been controversial from certain Religions or dogmas. We are going to describe what does it involve exactly from a Spiritual or Shamanic point of view. Sex is present everywhere in the nature from the most basic creatures to human beings. It is a very powerful energy on the terrestrial plane, so strong that this energy can easily dominate and manage our mind and body. We can imagine a swimmer felt in a mountain torrent, the strength of the stream will take him away. We need to be very good swimmers indeed to manage sexual impulse. In this…
  • Energetic field

    14 Sep 2014 | 1:22 pm
    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. We can see it as a hard drive record containing more or less positive or negative…
  • Awakening

    6 Sep 2014 | 12:19 pm
    Many people are spectators of their destiny. In this big theater, in this dance most of them are unconscious of their Self, real infinite and unlimited. The result is that most of us are mired into the densest dimensions being swept away by the winds of ego attachment and illusion. At that stage instinct is predominant over consciousness. You need to understand that what or who you think you are is an illusion, this is the first step on awakening and it is the hardest, you have to die to reborn, die from your convictions, from your fears. You are on the way to reintegrate who you really are,…

    Persisting Metamorphosis

  • Gratitude Post - Life Lessons

    Patrick Dwyer
    19 Oct 2014 | 11:11 am
    When I was a child, my schooling was not the most meaningful thing in my life. There were a million other matters that were more meaningfulor at least I believed to be more meaningful at the time.It wasn't that I didn't care to learn, but more that I didn't perceive a great deal of benefit in what my school deemed as essential. Unfortunately, the school I went to was not the best and they spent the majority of their time teaching students the test rather than teaching students to think for themselves. Luckily, I had access to the Internet and a few teachers and friends that supported my…
  • Sometimes failing to Reach a Goal Is the Best Thing That Can Happen to Us

    Patrick Dwyer
    13 Oct 2014 | 1:17 pm
    What happens when you set a goal and you don't meet that goal? I recently faced this question myself. As many of you might be aware I set a goal to compete in my first triathlon. A big chunk of that goal consisted of facing my fear of swimming in open water.Months of training and tough work was committed towards this goal, but when race day finally arrived I made the decision to not swim and only participated in the biking and running. Although I made a considerable bit of swimming progress and successfully swam in open water during practices, which I had never done before, I still did not…
  • Gratitude Post - Music

    Patrick Dwyer
    3 Oct 2014 | 10:41 am
    Music is a gift that I have become exceedingly grateful for over the years.  I myself fail to be musically inclined and couldn't carry a tune or catch a beat if my life depended on it.  All the same, I do relish music immensely, including all kinds, from classical to hip hop and other music most would have difficulty classifying.  Music can touch and trigger feelings and ideas that words alone would have trouble expressing.  By taking those same vague words and molding them around a repetitive, almost harsh bass note with a hi-hat, you have something that truly speaks.
  • Start Your Day on the Right Foot by Implementing a Ritual

    Patrick Dwyer
    28 Sep 2014 | 5:23 pm
    Every morning people wake up to the shrieking of an alarm clock to start their day. Not the utmost optimal way to wake up, but unfortunately that is our reality. What follows in the next hour or two before we leave our homes will pretty much decide our outlook and attitude for the majority of the rest of the day.  So, what is it you do after you hear that alarm start to blare? Do you hit snooze a few times till you're running behind, and now are rushing out the door? Do you roll out of bed on the first ring and jump right into necessities needed to arrive to work on time?  Hopefully…

    At the close of each day, what is the last thought that you find your mind lingering on?  For me it is usually what I hope to achieve the following day.  How many of us habitually take a moment to review what we are thankful for?  Furthermore, how many of us actually show our gratitude for the daily treasures we receive?In an effort to grow more as a human being,  I have decided to start a weekly post here on where I take a moment to express my gratitude toward events and people of the previous week.  Here is the first in that weekly…
