by Milos Bang

Most of Eastern Philosophy and Medicine comes from observing Nature and the Universe. Ancient Chinese realized early that most things in Nature are cyclical and by observing the human body’s patterns, established that our own energy (Qi) also moves on daily and on annual cycles.

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: The healing of mind, body and spirit that Ayurveda offers comes from constantly balancing what we take in and what we expel out. Our food, drink, emotions and environment all form what is know as ahara. Many times, toxins are carried along with ahara and create ama in the body. Ayurveda offers guidance on how to use food as medicine to detoxify the body on a daily basis. In Dr. John Douillard's Gaiam video, he discusses how different foods and rasas (tastes) will help purify the body and remove ama to restore balance. Using an Ayurvedic approach provides life-long tools to keeping our body clear of toxins with a healthy lymphatic system and alkaline body. Enjoy!

 

Ayurveda


by Arno Burnier, DC

One of the major tenets of Chiropractic Philosophy is that there is “one cause and one cure” to all human ills.


The primary cause being a separation from Spirit, a disconnection with Self. A state of dis-ease...

 

Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: In this article Dr. Arno Burnier discusses the "one cause, one cure" principle of chiropractic. As you read this article you feel the love and passion he has for his profession and it will inspire you to get reconnected with your own passion!

 

Chiropractic


by Karen Weintraub

Q. What connection do you see between the two sides of your life, poetry and medicine?

A. To my mind the two are inextricably interrelated. When we take care of patients we are immersed in stories, in language, in metaphor...

 

Editor's Note from Susan de Wardt: Poet-Doctor Rafael Campo provides perspective on the relationship between poetry and healing.

 

Writing & Poetry Therapy


by Cathy Walthers

This is one of my personal favorites. Friends often request this quinoa salad and I happily oblige because it’s a snap to make and goes well with everything. The quinoa in this recipe cooks in 15 minutes, and just a simple dressing of lemon juice and olive oil seasons it perfectly...


Quinoa: The Super Grain ~ Quinoa offers 20 different amino acids that your body uses to maintain and repair tissues, including all of the essential amino acids—making it a complete source of protein without the fat and calories found in animal protein.

 

Healing Recipes


by John J Ratey, MD

The Medford gynecologist and primary care physician for women says he's actually de-aging. That's based on a review of critical health markers that he says show "chronologically, if I go back a year on my numbers, I'm younger than a year ago...

 

Editor's Note: What's the best anti-aging drug? Exercise. A must have for your exercise library is the book SPARK: The New Science of Exercise and the Brain. Dr. John Ratey delivers proof that exercise improves the condition of virtually every subpopulation, from adolescents to post-menopausal women, addicts to those suffering from ADHD. Troy Heie wrote this article for Oregon Healthy Living back in 2008 and it was re-published in Dr. Ratey's website archives.

 

Exercise & Fitness


 

Editor's Note from Sue O'Callahan: What is consciousness and what does it mean to awaken? Papaji, a master teacher, explains the relationship between our core essence (consciousness) and its interconnectedness to everything in the Universe. It's a wonderful sharing.

 

Sacred Living


by Maria Dancing Heart Hoaglund

I’ve come to deeply appreciate the body-mind-spirit connection through many years of hospice work. Through my interest in the many holistic modalities that are resurfacing today, I’ve come across many interesting energy-related modalities. Most recently I’ve discovered Access Consciousness and the running of The Bars, a most unique and powerful form of energy medicine...

 

Energy Medicine


by Gus Rowe

The first 13 years of my life were fairly normal; a farm boy living in a small town doing the things farm boys do, working, playing, going to school, church, participating in sports. That ENDED shortly before my 14th birthday...

 

Editor's Note from Eileen Gonzalez: I met Gus Rowe in 2011 through his Facebook page.  I immediately knew he was someone special, straightforward and very honest.  He had a way with words and always managed to share his story in a very captivating way while ensuring you did not miss out on the message.  Gus is open and ready to move forward with an understanding that life might have other plans and he will be ready to embrace them.

 

PsychoSpiritual


 

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: To soothe Vata strained muscles, joints and skin, focus on some self pampering with the Ayurvedic practice of abhyanga. A daily warm oil massage is a great way to detoxify lymph, increase circulation, calm the body's nerves and stimulate muscles, while delivering important nutrients to the skin. This wonderful Banyan Botanicals video demonstrates a step by step abhyanga massage. Be sure to include your belly for an excellent treat for your digestive system. Enjoy!

 

Ayurveda


by Lyn Patrick, ND

Unfortunately, there is one lifestyle habit that is rarely assessed and is now known to be a major contributor to both depression and disease and a normal part of American life: sleep deprivation. Studies indicate that as much as 74 percent of Americans do not get enough sleep each night.

 

Editor's Note from Rebecca Snowden: Sleep is an essential aspect of lifestyle that warrants close attention. Dr. Patrick illuminates several reasons why it pays to sleep well and what it could mean to the body & mind if you don't.

 

Naturopathy


by Andres VergaraLAc, MAc and Michele Collins, RH (AHG), MPH

The concept of sweet that we tend to think of in the west is very different from the way traditional systems, like Chinese medicine classify sweet foods. Sweet foods in any traditional system include nearly all vegetables, meats, as well as whole grains and legummes. These foods comprise the basis of a healthy diet...

 

Editor´s Note: This is a great article that explains the concept of 'sweet' foods according to Chinese medicine. It offers an explanation to the process of cravings, and a simple and convenient way to counteract a sweet tooth.

 

Acupuncture/TCM


by J Stewart Dixon
ATH Co-Editor of Meditation

There’s a secret, esoteric, deeply private, metaphysical, magic skill I use in order to transcend the winter blues. I am going to reveal it to you right now. Are you ready?: I book a flight to Costa Rica or the Bahamas and stay there with my family for at least a week...

 

Editor's note from J. Stewart Dixon: As a spiritual awakening teacher I get a lot of emails, calls, and questions about depression, unhappiness and how to break free into a life of wholeness, clarity and sanity. I completely understand this line of questioning as I too was depressed for half my adult life. How did I break free?   Here's an article below I wrote about a year ago.  Also check out my book 21 Days for more information about depression and spiritual awakening: http://www.amazon.com/Days-overcoming-unhappiness-enlightenment-Extraordinary-ebook/dp/B009HTGNB0/ref=tmm_kin_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&sr=1-1&qid=1354917307
