Acne is a much more serious condition than it appears at first glance. Of course there is the obvious damage it does to the skin, but the more serious damage occurs on the inside...

 

Editor's Note from Melanie Channell: Acne can do much more damage to a person suffering from it than just scarring the skin. It can permanently harm them emotionally. LED light therapy offers a drug free way to treat and kill the bacteria that causes acne, thus helping to reduce the physical and emotional scars that can develop with this condition.

Our oceans are choking with plastic, reducing vast parts of the seas to toxic gyres of swirling trash that will last for thousands of years...

 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: A call to action: Ask Huge Beauty Companies to stop dumping tiny plastic bits into the ocean. Consider the ramifications to our ecology balance all because we need to exfoliate our skin. There's an organic way to get gorgeous skin! Short term beauty will lead to long term damage.

 

Organic Living


by Mark D. Hyde

In a brief encounter with a total stranger, I finally realized an insight that has taken me years to grasp. In a world where we long for everything new, bright, and shiny, I had come to be OK with, embrace, and even appreciated the dents, dings, and damage that life inevitably brought my way...
 

 

 

 

Therapeutic Storytelling


by Rebecca Eanes

My firstborn is a highly sensitive child. I didn’t realize this fact until he was three, and I didn’t fully understand it until he was four and a half when I read Ted Zeff’s book, The Strong, Sensitive Boy. Without the knowledge and understanding of my son’s sensitivity, I disciplined him in ways that damaged his self-esteem and our bond. 

 

 

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: For those of you who have never heard of HSC, which stands for highly sensitive child this is a very informative article. Have you noticed a difference between your children and how they react to the way you discipline them? Do they take it very personal and carry it with them? Are they overly emotional? Please read this article. You will learn different techniques that set boundaries but don't harm your child inside and out.

 

 

Family & Parenting


by Maureen Williams, ND

Like all of the other tissues of the body, the brain becomes less resiliant with age. Free radicals,inflammation, diminishing circulation, and changes in brain chemical levels all contribute to cumulative damage to brain cells. Research is increasingly indicating that these mechanisms are critical in the development of age-related neurological changes such as declining memory and cognitive skills, increasing experiences of mental fatigue and depressive symptoms, and progressive loss of motor control. Eventually, these changes can develop into debilitating diseases including age-related dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, and Parkinson’s disease.

 

 

Naturopathy


by Lisa Belisle

Ayurvedic oils, like sesame and sunflower oil, have been used for more than 5,000 years as a potent medicine for maintaining and improving well-being...

 

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: Hot, dry, pitta summer is here! As the sun and heat roll in, our skin is more susceptible to damage by tejas, so we must take steps to protect it. Abhyangha self-oiling massage is a wonderful way to nourish the skin during this season and a great method for relieving several bodily ailments. In Ayurvedic Practitioner Lisa Belisle's article "The Importance of Ayurvedic Oils," she discusses how beneficial herbal oils like sesame and sunflower can be to relieve skin conditions, insomia and muscle pain as well as help detoxify the body. Check out Lisa's article and then watch ATH's Abhyanga video to learn how to give yourself a daily massage. Namaste, Julie

 

Ayurveda


by Norman Shealy, MD, PhD

I have written before about the ubiquitous poisoning of the world. So did Rachel Carson many decades ago. Each decade it gets worse. Overall it is a toss up as to whether the world will ultimately be most damaged by the 550,000 chemical poisons released indiscriminately each year, or by nuclear contamination. I remember well national articles over 40 years ago about the carcinogenic chemicals in city water produced by chlorination of water...

 

Integrative Medicine

First things first:  Regardless of your dog’s age, or the cause, this is a medical emergency. The causes can range from infection, to trauma, to disc disease.

Important note: In cases of disc disease, the longer your dog lays there, the more permanent the damage to the spinal cord may be.

  

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Panic situation: Dog can't walk! What to do and what could be the cause? Alternative medicine gives many hopeful options for the down dog; options that are far less expensive and at least as effective, if not more so, than conventional veterinary medicine.
