Halloween is supposed to be a fun time for kids of all ages. And for many it is. Dress up, hang out with friends or family, and collect candy. What could be bad? Plenty, if you ask 11-year-old Louise. Halloween is absolutely no fun at all for her...
Editor's Note by Debbie Allen: Helping children combat fears is a frequent theme when working with young children. Children who are intelligent and have active imaginations are often the ones who are the most vulnerable to fear. Sounds, shadows, and shapes can take on ominous qualities as they lie in bed preparing for sleep.
Editor's Note from Julie Lachman: This is another of Tom Ballard's four videos. Most people don't realize it, but we're actually detoxifying all the time. Every exhale is detoxifying. When someone dies of suffocation, it's actually a death from too much carbon dioxide, not a deficiency of oxygen. Getting rid of toxins is how we stay alive--this includes toxins like heavy metals and pesticides, but also toxins that we make ourselves, like carbon dioxide, and extra cholesterol and hormones. So take a deep breath in, and out! Enjoy this cute video.

For over twenty years as physician, I’ve witnessed, time and again, the healing power of tears. Tears are your body’s release valve for stress, sadness, grief, anxiety, and frustration.

“Look Mom! No Hands!” After a pretty stressful couple of years, I have finally remembered this sort of a mantra that I used while in naturopathic medical school. It arose one year in the middle of another stressful period when I shared with a friend that I felt like I was on the “Roller Coaster of Life”. You know the period of anticipation at the beginning of a roller coaster, as you click, click, click up that first hill? Then the ride begins!
Editor's Note: While decreasing stress is optimal, still stresses will remain. Dr. Jensen gives us words of wisdom to help us handle all that life throws at us while limiting the undesired repercussions.
