What makes us human - Is it our intelligence, our physical bodies, our hearts?
No doubt, it is a combination of them all.
United, we share some common denominators – male or female (or something in between) – we all inhabit human bodies with similar functions and needs. Yet, we are way beyond whatever we imagine ourselves to be...
Editor's Note from David Starlight: What's holding you back from giving and receiving love from an open HEART? I've always believed that all healing ultimately comes from God, and it is a process of cleansing away layers of fear and doubt to uncover the perfect soul inside. The soul is already perfect and whole as it is. The fountain of love is within our hearts - listen to the wisdom of the heart, and one gains access to infinite realms of possibility. Then, discover the river of love baby meditation - a magical and alchemical silent open-eyed meditation.
Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Spring in the air means babies in the trees, and on the ground when they fall out, or get pushed out, of the nest. Dr Karen Becker shares her experience with baby bird foundlings.

Having a baby is one of the most exciting times in your life. You bring this little bundle of joy into your home. You knew the first few months will be a challenge, getting up every few hours for feedings...
Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro: March is Colic Awareness Month. Colic is when a baby cries for at least 3 hours per day. It is also one of the most common reasons why parents bring their children to the chiropractor.

Infantile colic can be very stressful for parents whose baby is inconsolable during crying episodes. Colic is often defined by the “rule of three”: crying for more than three hours per day, for more than three days per week, and for longer than three weeks in an infant who is well-fed and otherwise healthy...
Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro: Whether you are a parent or not, infantile colic isn't good for anyone! Colic is constant crying, which is caused by an unhappy digestive system in the baby. In this article, Dr. Peter Braglia discusses why colic happens and the research behind solutions.

In a youth oriented culture that inflates wrinkles with Botox and deflates our status as we age, directing interest towards the topic of aging is a hard sell. Yet, with baby boomers swelling the ranks, older adults (currently comprising about 15% of this country’s population) are the fastest growing demographic...

Researchers from the China Meitan General Hospital have found that acupuncture, the procedure of inserting needles at specific points on the body, can help in the delivery process by speeding it up. The researchers also added that the procedure was safe for mom and the baby...
Editor's Note: This is a great article for people who like research studies confirming the effectiveness of acupuncture. The researchers in this study used electroacupuncture at a single acupuncture point to demonstrate that acupuncture can shorten the duration of the active phase of the first labor stage. This is great news for all expectant moms!

Editor's Note from Julia Sanfilippo: I LOVE this video! Acupuncture is being offered at a Children's Hospital to be used in conjunction with Western Medicine. The two-month year old, Ricky, in the video has been getting treatments since he was 6 weeks old. How young a person can receive acupuncture is a common question. I always refer to my pediatric acupuncture professor's response, saying that as soon as the baby is born he/she can benefit from acupuncture. I hope this video educates parents that there are natural treatments even for the youngest of patients.
