It is estimated that more than 15 million Americans have asthma, and the number rises each year. This well-known condition makes it hard for people to breathe, and at its worst, it can be life-threatening...

 

Author's Note: Many people don't know that asthma can be controlled, and in some cases even resolved with appropriate massage and bodywork combined with self-care. Research shows this to be true, and many massage therapists and their happy clients can also attest to this fact.

Massage & Bodywork


 

Editor's Note from Sue O'Callahan: Rupert Spira inspires us to look at meditation a little bit differently. He defines it as knowingly being the presence of awareness.

Meditation

Conventional science has believed that our genetic inheritance is set in stone – that our DNA is what solely determines our health, personality traits and intelligence. Like a roll of the dice, you get what you came in with, and that’s it. Many people still believe this today. But, discoveries have been made that confound previous research; a simple change in environment can turn your genes on or off...

 

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Meditation has been scientifically proven to alter genetic structure. So, as Marlise showcases it here... we each have the ability to change the "predisposed" and seemingly uncontrollable aspects of our lives based on our energy and thoughts.
