I found another poem written by an unknown author. This poem is called Letting Go Takes Love. This poem is about letting go of things that we find difficult to let go of. Often, many clients ask me “how do I let go of things?” It is difficult to do so, but accepting what you can and cannot change helps to acknowledge the truth of a situation making it easier to let go of things...
Editor's Note from Tiffany Ip: Letting go can be the hardest thing to do. Our emotions, more often than not, cloud our logic. But we do have to realize that letting go does not mean giving up. It sounds like we are admitting defeat when we decide to detach ourselves from long-held goals or some relationships we have been desperately held on to. It is, however, a matter of acknowledging the truth. If you find yourself being stuck in a position that makes you depressed and forbids all other opportunities in life, it is time to learn the art of letting go.

Barefoot running is all the rage. Although barefoot running dates back to the earliest of times, its modern popularity is attributed to the 2009 publication of Born to Run. The book focuses on a Mexican tribe that runs for miles, through treacherous terrain, in just thin sandals...
Editor´s Note from Julia Sanfilippo: This is very informative article for both practitioners and patients for the treatment of plantar fasciitis, especially among runners and athletes. It explains how the injury is viewed and treated from an acupuncture perspective, specifically targeting trigger points in the calf that affect the foot. I treat this injury quite often for my athletes, and acupuncture with manual therapy works wonders!
Editor's Note from Karen Stabley: This 160 feet tall sculpture by Janet Echelman changes shape with the wind. It is suspended over a three-lane highway roundabout in Porto, Portugal. Sculpture Magazine described it as "one of the truly significant artworks in recent years". Visit Janet's website (www.echelman.com) to see more of her artwork that spans the globe.

Self-hypnosis is an incredibly useful tool. There are many cases where you'll want to teach self-hypnosis to people you've hypnotized. My philosophy is "teach and man to fish..." When you teach self-hypnosis, you allow that person to access the wonderful healing and suggestive powers of hypnosis - on their own...

We buy products to clean, deodorize and freshen our homes that have ingredients also used as, among other things, pesticides and fertilizers. Many of these chemicals are known and classified as poisons, carcinogens and toxins, but are not even required to be listed as ingredients on product labels since they are not considered consumables...

FDA rules dictate that every product must be labeled as either a FOOD or a SUPPLEMENT but NOT both. The FDA position is that it is impossible for any one product to both heal and feed you.
Every Naturopathic physician knows this is simply not true. We have been using carefully selected foods as effective medicines for over 100 years. There is no quackery here...

The only purpose of testing is to satisfy yourself as to the depth of self-hypnosis that you have reached. Some people never use tests because they easily learn to recognize the "feeling" of hypnosis and do not question or worry about depth...
Editor´s Note from Cynthia Lindner: In my experiences of helping people with hypnosis I have found that for some people it is very helpful to elicit trance phenomene to convince them that trance did indeed happen. This article gives instructions for testing the hypnotic state when doing self-hypnosis.
