Editor's Note from Carolyn White: Dr. Carolyn talks with Belinda Farrell, Reconnective Healing practitioner and Huna consultant, about her new book, "Find Your Friggin' Joy." This amazing book serves as a how-to "discover missing links from ancient Hawaiian Teachings to Clean the Plaque of your Soul and Reach Your Higher Self." Belinda relates how she has applied this wisdom to her own life using this energy "medicine" to heal broken bones, to overcome herniated discs causing spinal nerve damage, and to correct congenital spinal scoliosis. At the end of the interview, Belinda shares the short, soul stirring Hawaiian I'O chant, which is a "cosmic eraser" for what "ails you" as you will experience.

Most of the concern about kitchen sponges is around the amount of bacteria they can harbor. Sure, it's a very good point, but what about the environmental damage wreaked by these mostly synthetic throwaway items? Are there greener alternatives?...

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...

Guilt is an emotion that can play a large role in many relationships. Often it arises when we behave in a way that violates the expectations of others. After we realize that we may have disappointed someone or hurt them, we regret our actions and seek to repair the damage. While this emotion can often be uncomfortable, some psychologists argue that guilt is an evolutionary adaptation designed to improve our relationships. Guilt is often what drives us to apologize after we have done something wrong...
Editor´s Note from Debbie Allen: In any intimate relationship, we may say something we later regret or cross a boundary that is in conflict with our values. It is important to repair these relationship injuries and to find ways to also alleviate our feelings of guilt.

Modern obstetrics may damage the baby’s neurospinal system. Chiropractors have a moral responsibility to tell the public about the abuses of modern birth practices...
Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: Parents often wonder why their child should have their spine evaluated by a chiropractor. How could a child's spine have subluxations? In this article Dr. Arno Burnier details the trauma many children go through during the delivery process in so-called modern hospital births. Between 90 to 140 pounds of pressure is often used on the baby's head and neck causing subluxations of the cervical spine. If you are a parent, this is an article you must read!

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...

Most people I talk to today understand that humanity is inflicting harsh damage on the planet’s life support systems of clean air, water, soil, and biodiversity.
But they feel so insignificant among 6.2 billion people that whatever they do to lighten our impact on nature seems trivial. I am often asked, “What can I do?”...
Editor's Note: This article discusses such a society that is drenched in consumer culture and the author correlates the planet's destruction of resources through planned obsolescence brought about by an unsaturated market...
Editor's Note from Jean-Pierre Ruiz: What is in your water bottle? Is it worth the price (1,000 times the price of tap water)? Is it better? Is it worth the environmental damage? Well, this video from our friends at Storyofstuffproject make a case against bottled water. I would caution, however, that most of the tap water is contaminated with fluoride, which is a toxic by-product of the chemical industry.
