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.

by Antionetta Vicario

I grew up first generation in an old-school Italian household where pastries for breakfast, pasta for lunch and more pasta for dinner were the main food groups.  Not only was “Clean your plate” the understood in relationship to portion control, but it was more like “Back for seconds… and sometimes thirds.”  While I most certainly enjoy a bowl of pasta from time to time now, thankfully vegetables, fruits, whole grains and protein are the new staples of my diet; yet the biggest challenge that lingers from my childhood is portion control and managing cravings...


Editor's Note from Brooke Nisbet: Practicing yoga is not only about becoming more flexible or getting "yoga butt", but also about achieving deeper mindfulness. Yoga reminds you to not just go about your day on autopilot mindlessly driving to work, doing your job, grabbing food to go and then going home. Practicing yoga also builds your capacity to become more mindful in all that you do.

Salacia is a genus of plants in the family Celastraceae. One species in particular, Salacia oblonga, used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine, is increasingly becoming the subject of considerable medical interest: in particular for its potential as an anti-diabetic agent...


Editor’s Note from Rebecca Snowden: Research takes a closer look at Salacia oblonga, an Ayurvedic herb with anti-diabetic properties. Mechanisms of this plant’s active constituents are discussed by the well respected researcher, Dr. Peter D’Adamo.

It’s that time of the year. The leaves are turning, the air is chilling, and cider fills our fridges. This is a beautiful time of the year, but unfortunately, it also means that many people are becoming ill with the Flu. Not only that, your local pharmacies, MD’s, and grocery stores are blasting you with “GET THE FLU SHOT!” Do you really want to know what the Flu is and what you can do to protect yourself from it? Here are a few steps, some of which are obvious...


Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro: Do you get the flu shot each year to prevent the dreaded flu? Do you do anything else besides getting the shot to prevent it? This year, take Dr. Nick Marini’s advice and follow these eight steps, which includes not getting the flu shot.



by Tina Rayner

As I have mentioned in previous articles, I used to attend a very strict church. One of the tenets of this church was that we were all born sinners and therefore, definitely separate from the, “God” that we prayed to. Everyone’s goal in this church was to enter the kingdom of God. To accomplish this, we were told to repent and to be baptized under water, but even that was not an automatic given entry because of the ever-present potential for sin...

Editor´s Note from Tina Rayner: For years, I've tiptoed around, too afraid to be powerful, for fear of blasphemy. I'm done tiptoeing. It's time to tell the truth about being God.

It was February, 2003. Katie, a 7 year-old German Shorthair hunting dog had returned home in some apparent discomfort from a long day’s hunting with her owner, Stan. Thinking he could ease her soreness, he gave her some ibuprofen, totally unaware of the fact that the ingredients are toxic to dogs and could lead to kidney failure and death...


Editor's Note from Michael Salewski: This article provides a number of lessons to pet owners. For one, the use of human medications in our pets can often have unintended and terrible consequences. Secondly, that the damage done by "side-effects" is often seen as irreparable, when in fact there may be answers outside of mainstream medicine.


Animals & Pets

by Allison Havens

When I first met the youth group in El Nance started by the previous ArtCorps Artist Monica Gutierrez, I asked them to brainstorm the topics and activities they were interested in working on this year. Out of this first session, we came up with the idea to make trashcans for the community to help combat the problem of waste in the streets...


Editor's Note from Erica Curtis: Creativity, environmental education, and necessity collide when a group of youth in Honduras come together to clean up their community, with a little inspiration from re-purposed trash turned into art.



Arts & Art Therapy

by Gregory Mengel, PhD

The reason the Ecospiritual movement emphasizes the integration of personal/spiritual growth and intellectual development derives from the way knowledge itself is understood within the new paradigm. The dominant worldview tends to imagine the human mind in terms of a disembodied rationality, passively receiving information and analyzing it to arrive at an objective representation of the world. The last hundred years of science, however, has revealed that the universe consists of an intricate web of interdependent relationships and processes...

Pregnancy is an exciting surprise for those planning a family. For women, from the moment you've missed your period the emotional bond with your baby has begun. For that reason when there's a miscarriage, regardless if you are six weeks or 24 weeks, the emotional and physical recovery can be difficult...


Editor's Note from Julia Sanfilippo: An informative article that explains not only the physiological but the emotional aspects of pregnancy and miscarriage. It offers insight into the role of Traditional Chinese Medicine in the healing process of a miscarriage to maintaining a future pregnancy. My favorite quote is one from her patients, "An acupuncture baby is a happy baby." So true!

Getting back in shape for summer?

Now that it’s warmer and the extra ... ehhmm, protection that we have built up over the winter is not required, it’s time to put on those sneakers and get to work. It’s important to remember that one needs to pace oneself when restarting an exercise program after months of hibernation...


Editor´s Note: Sonal presents 7 remedies with their indications in sports injuries of all types. As she notes, homeopathic tissue salts can also be an effective treatment option in these situations. Consult your homeopath in the event of any sports related injury, particularly if the injury is old and you are still suffering its effects.




Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Understanding who plants, picks, and moves our food is an essential part of choosing products that support a healthy planet.

Editor's Note: Dr. Hyla Cass discusses why it is so important to take our daily dose of fish oil. 


 Holistic Nutrition

by Elaine Seiler

We all experience stress at one time or another – for most of us, far too often. It takes a toll on our bodies, our minds, and most of all, our energy. There are many “methods” of dealing with stress. But I believe the most efficient way to cope with everyday stress must start with a person perceiving it differently...
