Body Clock

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.

I found a brownie recipe on the Institute for Integrative Nutrition website. It called for carob powder. For a chocolate lover like me, that was unacceptable. How can you make a brownie with a chocolate substitute? So I tweaked the recipe to include high-quality chocolate (preferably sweetened with evaporated cane juice) and a pinch of cayenne pepper. Both cacao and cayenne pepper are aphrodisiacs. Cayenne pepper also dilates capillaries and thus allows cacao’s abundant nutrients to reach cells more easily...

 

 

Healing Recipes


by David G. Arenson, ND
ATH Co-Editor of Sacred Living

We have been hijacked by left-brained analysis, taught to tick boxes, and fulfill obligations, follow order and suppress creativity. It's time to end our left-brain-centered thinking and open ourselves to new pathways of expression, in essence, surrendering to the imagination...

 

Editor's Note from David Arenson: Society has been wrong about one fundamental idea which has polluted our entire consciousness – this idea that we are separate. This presents an argument for ending left-brain domination and opening our minds to possibility. The differences we highlight are an illusion. We are all the same flesh and blood, made from the same cosmic particles. Imagination is more important than knowledge and this thing called “life” is the greatest possible journey of awareness we can go on.

 

Sacred Living


by Janya Wongspa RYT, CAS, PKS

Actually, it is very helpful to look outside and dream. I did a lot of it growing up. I still do. But now I make sure that I look inside as much if not more often.  I listen to Dharma talk as much as I listen to NPR. Buddhist teachings help me relate to external things internally. If I see a misery out there I need to recognize it inside my heart...


Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: A true self-reflection is worth its weight in gold. Ayurveda and Yoga teacher Janya Wongspa offers some insight into our deepest inspiration in her personal reflection, "Secrets of a Charmed Life." Since 2013 offers new light and opportunities for us to grow, learn and share, take a moment to reflect on your life, your goals and the people that surround you. Namaste & Happy New Year

Editor's Note: Michael got me going on Pamela Colman Smith (aka Pixie). During the 2010 Tarot Conference in London, some participants toured Smallhythe Place, where Pixie seems to have drawn some of her landscape elements for the deck she created. The archivists brought some of her works out of storage just for the Tarot "tourists". I feel like I've just strolled an English garden!

Millions of people all over the world suffer from seasonal allergies. Acupuncture is one way to help deal with this problem.

 

We experience allergies when the body’s immune system overreacts to common substances in the environment. Grass pollens in summer are a common allergen, and in the fall some people may react to the presence of mold spores...

Kirlian photography has a well-established diagnostic purpose in the field of alternative and Eastern medicine. The images produced have a profound effect on the ability to heal. Let's take a look at what Kirlian photography is and how it can be used to heal...


Editor's Note from Melanie Channell: Kirlian photography can be an excellent diagnostic tool for experienced alternative healers. It photographs the body’s biological and energetic field making it easier to read their subjects physical, emotional, and psychological condition. It can also make the practitioner aware of disease before it manifests in the body.

 

Energy Medicine

Recycling gift bags is a tradition in my family. We’re talking down to the nametags.

Each year, after our loved ones pluck new treasures out of slightly rumpled sacks that may or may not still have torn tissue paper inside to disguise their contents, they are returned to the original gift givers to use again next year...

 

Editor´s Note: Quick and simple read, Jen reminds us that just because we have always done something a certain way doesn't mean that it works. It reminds me of how often I have a new client look at me like I am insane when I tell them that they need to change something that they have held to be true and necessary for so many years that it has been ingrained in them. People often need a reminder that if they want to see change, something needs to change. Want to stay the same? Keep with tradition.

Editor's Note: Yes, this may be a lengthy video but well worth the look. William Li discusses how our precious food can help starve cancer. Based on the process of how our blood vessels grow and feed cancer, Li explains a new treatment, angiogenesis, that treats cancer before it's too late.

 

Holistic Nutrition


by Jon York

So many words looking for a home
or just a page to rest upon
or a rhyme to complete or a poem
that they can call home
as they look forward to the beauty
of the next moment or the next hour
and as they sink roots
into the present
their strength grows
as they think about
tomorrow...

 
Editor's Note from Susan de Wardt: These poems on writing express how poetry helps Jon York deal with the experience of PTSD.

 

Writing & Poetry Therapy


by Janno Õnneleid, Dip PH

Are you giving to yourself what you need for your well-being?

Maybe you've stopped doing so because somewhere along the line you began to believe you didn't deserve to have your needs met? That only a select few "special ones" get to have their needs met?

That is a lie! Time to say hello to your truth and come back to balance by giving yourself the gift of whatever it is that you need the most...

There is a structure behind most habits which behavioral psychologists refer to as “habit loops.”


Habit loops consist of three main parts. First is the cue, the trigger from the environment that tells your brain to go into autopilot and which habit to use. Next is the routine, which can be a mental or physical action you take whenever presented with the cue. And lastly is the reward, which is what you get from the habit that fulfills a craving in your brain...


Editor´s Note: Changing bad habits and developing good habits is a challenge for many people.Here is the research that shows how this works.
