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.

The ways of spirit are mysterious. Couple that with my tendency to be kind of dense and you’ve got yourself a recipe for utter bewilderment. Such was the case when the spirits came knocking on my door about 12 years ago. At the time, not only was I oblivious to the ‘call,’ but I didn’t even know I had answered. Instead, I just wrote the whole thing off as a very strange experience.

Many patients ask: “Dr. Hiebert, what pillow do you recommend?” The answer to that question is both simple and complicated.

Simple Part: The most desirable position for sleeping is one that keeps the spine in perfect alignment...

 

Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro: So many people are sleeping with old pillows or ones that do not provide good spinal support. Improper spinal alignment while you sleep can lead to neck pain and headaches that can ruin your day. Dr. Jessica Hiebert gives her recommendation for the best addition to any pillow.

by Beverley Hawkins

There are two different types of skin reactions that can occur when using essential oils topically. They are quite different and are often initiated by different chemical components in an essential oil...

 

 

 

 

 

 

Aromatherapy


by Maya E. Nahra, RD, LD

I do too, especially when in the context of food-like substances, i.e. McDonalds french fries, Dunkin’s doughnuts, or Wonder’s dinner rolls...

 

Editor´s Note from Michael Jones: Moderation is a word that is overlooked in the american diet. When we practice moderation we are able to achieve our health goals and learn how to eat healthfully.

 

 

Holistic Nutrition


by Lynn Jaffee

I have lots of gardens in my yard; some are in the shade, some are sunny, and some are tucked into little corners that don’t get much attention.  I like to walk around my house and check what’s been growing, what’s flowering, and what needs a little weeding.  The other day, as I was checking out the green, I began to take stock of how many plants growing in my yard are actually Chinese herbs...

 

Editor's Note: Acupuncturist and author Lynn Jaffee writes an interesting piece about Chinese herbs found in the backyard. In acupuncture college we learn the herbs in a more esoteric way: identifying them in their dried and sliced form and learning the names in Chinese and Latin. Its quite removed from looking at the actual plant growing in the garden.

 

Acupuncture/TCM


 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Lauren Small, of the American Fitness Network, performs several standard Pilates exercises and gives modifications for  each trimester. As a Pilates instructor who is in her second trimester, Lauren shows how to make Pilates safe and effective...

 

Exercise & Fitness


by Jan Engels-Smith

On the road to enlightenment, the way is not always smooth and it certainly is not effortless. How we view our challenges can determine whether or not we receive the full benefits that they offer. The universe is non-judgmental and does not define for us the events of our lives as good or bad; that decision is ours alone, and if we refuse the responsibility of our choice and assign the conditions to bad luck or the inevitability of failure, we have lost an opportunity for deeper understanding...

 

Editor's Note from Melanie Channell: Every challenge we encounter in life is a tremendous opportunity for growth. Choosing to face our trials with a positive attitude, allows us to move toward hopefulness and away from powerlessness. Ultimately, we as individuals are the only ones who are responsible for our feelings and how we view the “tests” in life.

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: We hand picked this delightful video for you. It is such a fun educational video about our solar system, it teaches about each planet and their elements with a catchy tune. Sing this with your children, they can't help but learn from this video.

A lot of my clients with low back problems have some form of hyperlordosis. Lordosis is the normal, slight curve in the low back, so hyper-lordosis means there is too much curvature...

 

Editor's Note: Author shares her insights into the mysteries of Low Back Pain and its association with curvature of the spine.

 

Massage & Bodywork


by Rachel Holmes

Although modern yoga practice primarily focuses on the physical practice of postures accompanied by meditation and breathing techniques, traditionally, yoga involved much more than that. For example, Patanjali writes in his ancient text, the Yoga Sutras, that yogic practices are comprised of eight limbs...

 

Editor's Note: Most modern yoga practitioners learn about the deeper ideas that comprise a traditional yogic practice fairly gradually. Most become familiar with certain principles but still only regularly practice asana (poses), pranayama (breathing), and limited forms of dharana (mantras) or dhyana (meditation). Clearly, restricting our practice to the poses themselves along with some combination of meditation and deep breathing leaves out a great deal of the internal elements of yoga training. To find out the deeper affects of practicing all 8 limbs of yoga, read on!

 

Yoga


 

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: It's never too early to begin nourishing your child. Ayurveda recommends abhyanga oil massage to protect against Vata early on, even for babies! This detailed video reviews how to massage an infant with specific attention to the stroke types, start times and environment (warm and comfortable). Abhyanga allows the nourishing oil to lubricate the skin, muscles and joints, calms the nervous system and encourages restful sleep. *Note that they are using organic coconut oil, which is fine during summertime, but luke warm sesame oil is best thoroughout the rest of the year when it is cold, to encourage ciruclation. Enjoy this wonderful practice with your baby and the beautiful bond it creates. Namaste.

 

Ayurveda


by Larry Culliford, MB, BChir (Cantab), MRC Psych (UK)

I am a frequent and vivid dreamer. Perhaps this is natural, but it may also be connected to having kept a ‘dream diary’ while in my twenties. On waking, I would recall and record as much as possible of any of the night’s dreams...

 

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: I am delighted to introduce to ATH readers Dr. Larry Culliford, an author and retired psychiatrist from the UK, who writes and teaches extensively about the joint fields of Psychology and Spirituality.  In a column he writes for Psychology Today, he shares a couple of his own transformative dreams.
Welcome, Larry!
