Seth Godin & Power Storming

September 17, 2010|14Comments|

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R_NOCptyi1c Today I’m talking about throwing caution to the wind. Do you find yourself getting stuck because you’re afraid something won’t be perfect? I know I fall into that trap time and time again and frankly it’s a bore, snooze, blah. This morning, an email from Seth Godin inspired me to reinvent a program I’ve been developing over the past few months and I am so excited to share it with you today…POWER STORMING!

Using Stimulation to Your Advantage

September 15, 2010
By Brendan Brazier
|10Comments|

Unexpectedly hearing a loud noise when the room is quiet, you might feel a sudden rush of energy. This is the most basic form of stimulation, left over from your primal survival mechanism. Your body assumes the loud noise is a threat and prepares you for action by engaging the adrenal glands to draw more energy. In reaction to the first onset of stimulation — a form of stress — we gain energy. We become… Read More >

Prescription for Health: A Meat-Free Diet

September 13, 2010
By Neal Barnard, MD
|18Comments|

It’s come to this: Researchers in the United Kingdom are now suggesting that fast food chains should hand out cholesterol-lowering drugs with cheeseburgers, milkshakes, and other menu items to combat the effects of these fatty foods. But they also say that statins don’t stop all of the unhealthy effects. As a doctor, I agree that statins are not the solution, and I’m calling for a reality check. Decades ago, we learned that the fat and… Read More >

Trust & Calling Conditions

September 3, 2010|26Comments|

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m8Qwp6Tisq4 Do you trust your inner wisdom or do you bounce around like a beach ball listening to everyone else’s advice but your own? When our minds are full of noise and confusion it’s hard to get to the heart of our true needs, emotions and feelings. Even though I’ve learned this lesson hundreds of times, I can easily forget my own advice. Luckily, one of my treasured mentors, Dean Ornish MD, saw this block… Read More >

Adrenal Fatigue 101

August 31, 2010
By Guest Blogger
|24Comments|

Adrenal fatigue is one of those illnesses most people haven’t heard about. It is usually caused by stress; if you overload your body with too much physical, emotional, and/or psychological stress, your adrenals have to deal with it. Even infections, injuries, and environmental stress take a toll on the adrenals. If the glands aren’t in an environment to recover and replenish, adrenal fatigue often occurs. When you hear someone say that they’re burnt out, it’s… Read More >

Many of us have done a detox to eliminate internal toxins from our body, but how many of us do anything about the toxins in our own homes? Common household and body care products are increasingly being found to have negative health effects on the nervous and immune systems, on our reproductive systems, and on our endocrine, cardiovascular and respiratory systems. The average home contains 500-1,000 chemicals, many of which we are unable to see,… Read More >

I love farmers markets more than any other market or store. I love carrots more than karats! Knowing the people who grow my food is important to me. I love weekly visits with the farmers from our area. Seeing the farmers’ pride and joy for a job well done caring for the land and their crops enhances the flavor and nourishment of what I buy from them.

My dog is the love of my life. She is smart, affectionate, cuddly and her adoration is completely unconditional (unless you count two full human meals a day a condition). Edie came into my life just after I was diagnosed with cancer back in 2008. My diagnosis called for me to give up work and move back in with my parents. After moving away from my friends and breaking up with my long-term boyfriend, Edie… Read More >

Low-Glycemic for Better Health

August 19, 2010
By Gabriel Cousens MD
|5Comments|

My extensive research over some 35 years has confirmed that a low-glycemic diet is one of the key components for good health, optimal gene expression, a healthy living colloid field, stable blood sugar levels, and a quiet mind. These all support spiritual awakening. The primary purpose of the low-glycemic diet is to prevent the “self-composting button” from being pushed. As briefly discussed in Chapter 6 of my book “Spiritual Nutrition,” the subtle organizing energy fields,… Read More >

Illness and the desire for wellness set me on a unique journey. It was in my mid-teens (in the funky ’80s) that I started to realize that what I ate (among many other things) actually affected the outcome of my health. I was enlightened by what I think was a Sesame Street memory—“You are what you Eat”— but also by my summer job experience as a cook at a natural foods café and by the… Read More >

I live in paradise. Yes, the kind on the postcards: palm trees, coconuts, sunshine, blue sky, all that. Costa Rica has been my home for 12 years. I came in search of paradise, and in the end I got it. The funny thing is that it didn’t look anything like the postcard I’d imagined. In 2005, my second child was born with Down Syndrome. Addison’s journey into this world would become a trip into healing… Read More >
