Imagine all the toxins with which our body has to deal, whether it’s normal products of life’s processes, like carbon dioxide, or other factors, like air pollution. Sprinkle on the more subtle toxins like the economy or your in-laws. These toxins build up and, when our bucket is full and our ability to process them is overcome, they prevent our body from functioning optimally...
Editor's Note from Julie Lachman: As our largest organ, or skin reveals amazing things about the rest of our body. It's often the first sign that something is wrong. So, don't medicate it; listen to it! See Part 1.

Stroud is a pretty little town nestled peacefully in the Karuah Valley, NSW. The verdant green and rolling hills surrounding Stroud are more reminiscent of England than of the wide brown land of Dorothea Mackellars’ poem, My Country**. Maryjane O’Dell’s house and garden in the main street of Stroud combines the quaintness of a cottage garden and a home lovingly and skillfully restored, with a quirky sense of humour. The result is a delight for the senses...
Editor's Note from Karen Adler: Maryjane O'Dell would not consider herself to be an artist but the fact is that she is one. Her home, Ye Olde Bakehouse, in Stroud, Australia is one of those places where the creativity of the owner jumps out at you. Her joy in making and constructing things is evident everywhere you look and the result is a delight for the senses.

Many people use the terms "stress" and "anxiety" interchangeably, but they are actually two separate conditions. Stress is a response to a stimulus, either internal or external. You may feel stress because you are frustrated with something (like waiting in line behind a slow person) or when you are worried that you won't meet expectations (such as missing a deadline)...

Editor's Note: This video illustrates some of the music therapy work and its results in working with people in the Calgary area who have suffered brain injuries. Through this work Jennifer and her music therapists are enabling people to speak who otherwise would not have that opportunity.

Music Therapy & Sound Healing

In the house on Bayard Street piles of bony fear hide in dusty corners. Behind the ghostly outline of a couch a young soul, nose to knotty-pine paneling,waits to be retrieved...
Editor´s Note from Nancy Burnett: Mary writes after realizing true healing. She captures the essence of renewed hope, coming joy, and new life. She inspires anyone seeking health in mind, body, and soul to move toward help. Mary's poem is a prelude to discovering her story shared in Voices of the Soft-bellied Warrior, a memoir of her journey through healing a rare voice disorder.
We at ATH are committed to bringing together a worldwide community of individuals and organizations
dedicated to informing and educating people on topics relating to alternative healing of mind, body,
