    From’s health section, Saludify, by author Hope Gillette. How Chakra Therapy improves your health There is a common misconception regarding practices like chakra therapy; some individuals feel it is an alternative to traditional medicine. In reality, even though chakra therapy can be used alone, it is most effective when used as a means to supplement other treatments. Chakra therapy improves your health by addressing an individual’s spiritual and emotional energy needs. “Many people are aware that they are more than their body, more than their minds, or feelings.

    Many of us have become concerned about the agricultural and manufacturing practices of our food products.  Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are a hot topic today with strong arguments from both sides baffling consumers.  GMOs are organisms that have been spliced into foods to inhibit the growth of plant pathogens or to create resistance to insects and weeds.  Monsanto is the big name most of us recognize as the manufacturer of Round-Up.  One problem facing farmers using Round-Up is that the weeds have become Super Weeds more resistant to the herbicide.  This leads to further…

When you have a reaction to a piece of furniture or jewelry or art that invokes a response of this type, you are connecting with the energy resonating from the symbol. In our aura fields, we retain this information from previous lifetimes, and it is part of our hard wired conditioning that certain symbols evoke these energetic patterns within us.  For…

    I love chocolate. Maybe its chocolate's use as a reward in my childhood or maybe its just the fact that it tastes wonderful. Maybe this blog is simply justification to consume the food I love but I've come across some research revealing health benefits of this wonderful treat loved by so many.

    Andrea Butje
    14 Apr 2014 | 3:00 am
    Have you used Yuzu? (Try saying that a few times fast!) Yuzu essential oil is extracted from Citrus junos, a small tree that produces citrus fruits that look like oranges or small grapefruits. Their color is orange-yellow with hints of green, and their peels are bumpy. Traditionally, the fruit peels were used in hot baths on the day of the winter solstice to protect bathers from winter colds and flu. These days we use Yuzu essential oil for soothing arthritis, rheumatism, and overall muscle aches and pains. The oil from the fruit is also known to stimulate the digestive system. (Little known…

    I love inhalers! Aromatherapy inhalers are easy to make, inexpensive, and simple to carry around. I’ve come up with a few recipes over the years that I make over and over again. I’ve found that having these on hand gives me a wonderful feeling of being supported in my life, especially when things get a little stressful. Sleep: Use this one before bed.

    Cindy Black
    17 Apr 2014 | 2:08 am
     Flowing Qi is happy Qi! Qi changes with the seasons. In the winter, even though there is much stillness Qi still flows. Winter Qi moves quietly and is located more deeply toward our interior. This is similar to way that the energy of trees is held in the roots during winter. Spring has arrived! Now comes the expansive growth of plants sprouting, trees budding out and the birds singing and getting busy.  Although most humans keep the same hours and routines regardless of the seasons, our Qi is linked to these seasonal changes. Even though we have learned how to keep sitting still at work or…

    From the seeds and roots held steady in winter, new growth emerges in spring. I’ve been around for a decades and witnessed this event many times. But it wasn’t until Khadro pointed out that whatever seeds we have planted in our Water Element (which corresponds to Winter) will grow in the Wood Element (which corresponds to Spring) that I understood the implications. Why does that matter? The Water Element is where we hold fear, peace and creativity.  Spring is the season of growing out whatever has been stored or incubated in Winter.  The anger and frustration we might easily…

    The Spleen meridian has key acupoints for women’s health. “The Stomach and Spleen are like warehouses where one stores all the food and essences. They digest, absorb, and extract the food and nutrients.” – Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Medicine The Spleen is a key player in digestion. The Stomach and Spleen are the Organs most responsible for digestion within the Chinese medical perspective. The Stomach keeps the food moving through the digestive tract while the Spleen absorbs Qi and nutrients. The role of the Spleen is very different in Chinese medicine than it is…

    Out of 365 points, which are my favorite three? GB 20 (Gallbladder 20) An easy point to add into any massage, GB 20 is often a “sore spot” on people with tight necks and/or headaches. ST 36 (Stomach 36) We are what we digest. ST 36 supports digestion, which in turn brings nutrients and energy to our hungry cells. LV 3 (Liver 3) This point is sore on just about everyone I have worked on! In these busy times most of us can use a little extra help keeping our Qi moving and our attitude “going with the flow”.

At first, I thought this was an odd question but after some time I realized there may be some therapists who don’t see male clients. While I respect their decisions, let it be known I do have male clients and really enjoy working with them. Of course, men have the same overall anatomy as women and get similar aches and pains from poor posture, repetitive motion injuries, and stress. However, men also tend to be less…

I have found a medical practitioner who has devoted her practice to helping women regain the health and vitality many of us assume we will lose during menopause. I decided to share my journey as I switched from synthetic hormones to bioidentical hormones because I am convinced we do not have to suffer. Sadly, the number of practitioners offering this service is woefully small and women often just go along with conventional medical treatment not…
  • Should You Talk During a Massage?

    Emma Nicholson
    8 Jul 2013 | 6:42 am
    To talk or not to talk during a massage is a personal decision. Many people sink into a meditative state and focus their attention to their body and the sensations that arise during a massage. Others enjoy the connection with their therapist gained through conversation. It is entirely up to you! As a therapist, I find value in both. When a client is peaceful and quiet, I become finely tuned in to the reactions their bodies have to my touch: muscles release tension, changes in breathing patterns, groans of delight, or even a twitch when I hit a painful spot. Talking during a massage allows a…

Being born Is trauma enough Yet, humans still harm one another A post-traumatic injury… Of stress. The body, the mind, the spirit Pummeled in excess… The ability to adapt To restore To regulate nervous system exceeded. Held in our connective tissue Suspended in glial…

  • 3 simple ways to feel better this spring

    Amanda Cook
    24 Mar 2014 | 8:50 am
    “What changes do you make to get ready for spring?” That’s the question I asked yesterday at the start of my spring natural beauty workshop.  Just asking the question seemed to puzzle people.  Aside from switching our wardrobe, most of us don’t think about how the change of seasons might impact how we feel.  But it does.  Well, it does if you’re tuned into it. Our never-changing lifestyles are a new phenomenon.  Our great-grandmothers (and their great-grandmothers) would have lived in sync with the seasons because they had to.  Imagine: before electricity…
  • Dandelion & Rooibos Well-Rooted Chai

    24 Feb 2014 | 2:06 am
    Do you ever have those days when thoughts are swirling in your head?  You feel a bit spacey and scattered – too much to do, not enough time.   In that state of mind, I’m never very productive.  Instead of focusing on work, I seem to just get stressed and add more items to my to-do list. Luckily this doesn’t happen to me as much as it used to, thanks to my morning rituals and generally letting go of the need to control every minute of my life (and just letting life take its course.) But it still gets me from time to time.  Typically when I have too much caffeine or sugar…

    I’ve been studying herbal medicine for almost 5 years now. About 2 years into my studying, I thought “wow, I know a lot!” … and now I’ve hit a point 5 years in, where I feel like I don’t know anything at all. Funny how that happens, isn’t it? In the beginning of learning anything, you truly “don’t know what you don’t know.”  But as you get deeper into a subject, you realize how much more there is to learn. I know that compared a random person on the street, I do know a lot about natural health, beauty and healing.  But as all…

    We’re in the depths of winter.  And it’s cold. (Not nearly as cold here in London as it is in the States this year!  But still.  I feel the cold!)

  • New study pegs sugar as main culprit in diabetes

    Dr. Richard Herbold
    15 Apr 2014 | 1:13 pm
    Clifton Park, New York’s Capital District Vitality Center news: Cut the sugar to prevent, manage, or even reverse diabetes For years, medicine has pegged obesity as the number one cause of diabetes. However, results of a recent large epidemiological study suggest it’s sugar that plays a pivotal role in diabetes. The study also illustrates that how many calories you eat isn’t as important as what makes up those calories — the study found calories from sugar is more damaging than calories from other foods. Researchers looked at the correlation between sugar availability and…

But as it turns out, the association between cholesterol and cardiovascular disease has been somewhat misrepresented. Doctors are starting to accept that cholesterol levels do not necessarily predict risk for heart disease as much as we thought.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), a condition of severe, chronic tiredness, is a well-known term in the medical world and affects between one and four million people in the United States.

    I decided to give tantric meditation a serious try after having tasted bits and pieces of Vajrayana Buddhism through the years. Vajrayana is often referred to as Tibetan Buddhism, although it originated from India and has since also been practiced in Bhutan, Nepal, parts of China and Japan. As per my teacher Lama Sangye's suggestion, I began with the White Tara. So far, it has been quite effective! There is lots of synergy with the classic Buddhist sutra teachings on impermanence, non-self and interbeing that I've focused on to date. But tantra comes at them from a very…

The lead researcher was the professor of Psychiatry at the University of Warwick. He explained “The key message here is that we really do have to use these drugs more carefully. This builds on a growing body of evidence suggesting that their side effects are significant and…
  • Prayer and Faith – Age Old Allies in the Fight Against Cancer

    Dr. Keith Nemec
    9 Apr 2014 | 10:32 am
    Cancer can be a devastating disease, and the road to recovery and restored health can be long and fraught with pitfalls. For hundreds of years, people have turned to prayer and faith to help them through the dark times of their illness and the despair that often accompanies it. Modern conventional medicine has had an equally long history of relegating faith and spirituality to the very outskirts of their cancer treatments. Considering it little more than an opiate that does little to actually help their patients fight the disease or recover their health. But faith and spirituality are large…
  • Vitamin C Therapy for Cancer – An Old Discovery That’s Making a Big Comeback

    Dr. Keith Nemec
    2 Apr 2014 | 10:48 am
    Throughout the late 1960′s and early 1970′s, Doctors Linus Pauling and Ewan Cameron conducted extensive research into the efficacy of vitamin C as a treatment for cancer. They concluded that high doses of vitamin C could be used as both a preventative protocol to protect the body from the development of cancer, and as an auxiliary treatment for patients treating an existing cancer. It should come as no surprise that the conventional medical community of the day refused to countenance such findings, and ultimately labeled the results inconclusive while calling Pauling and Cameron…

  • Hypnosis for Phobias and Fear

    James Vera, CCH
    15 Apr 2014 | 8:19 am
    To be human is to experience fear at some point or another. It’s part and parcel of the “human condition.” Fear, in a very real way, is important for our survival. You could say that it’s an instinctual response… hard-wired into our brain to help us, as a species, survive the many dangers in our world. For example, should you look out your front door today and find a wild animal outside, say a wolf or ferocious dog, the fearful reaction you would experience would be all-too normal. Unfortunately, for some people the occasional experience of fear – a fearful…

    “Frequent anger brings bad luck.” Master Choa Kok Sui Anger is a negative lower emotion that gets lodged in the Solar Plexus chakra, affecting it in the long run. Uncontrolled anger creates holes and cracks in the protective web of the Solar Plexus chakra, making it susceptible to the influence of anger elementals and energy parasites. Once affected by negative thought forms and elementals, anger becomes uncontrolled. This in the long run not only affects our relationships, career and life in general but also can lead to severe health problems such as heart ailments, hypertension,…

    ‘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.

You may have heard about the benefits of taking a ‘teatox’ (tea detox). So, you may ask, when is the best time to drink detox tea? Most teatox regimes dictate taking one cup of tea in the morning and one in the evening, about half an hour before your breakfast and dinner. This timing has the effect of assisting digestion, suppressing the appetite (so you eat less) and increasing the metabolism which helps you…
