We all know that libido is important for us men and equally as important to our spouses. When it comes to the male libido, its usually social and psychological components that can effect it. We have all heard of aphrodisiac foods...
Editor's Note from Michael Jones: As we grow older, our bodies grow older too. Certain parts might not work how they used to. Food plays a very important role in the functioning of our bodies. Avoiding certain foods can help you with longevity with your sexual health.

“Ama” means partially or undigested food. Ama can cause toxic residue to build up in the gut. This residue harms the gut and can infiltrate and harm the body and its organs, contributing to many different chronic disease conditions...
Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: With the change to Vata season, many toxins begins to accumulate in the body and mind that will need to be purged. In Ayurveda, these toxins are called "ama" and stem from undigeted food along with unprocessed environmental hazards that are not eliminated by adequate agni. Vaidya Alex Duncan discusses ama, its sources and its accumulation. Namaste

Many people do not realize that there are alternative ways to treat common pet ailments instead of rushing to the vet (no offense DVMs!). Taking care of your pet’s health all goes back to providing a healthy, balanced diet and exercise. Too many products used today are toxic not only to the environment but to your health, not to mention the health of your pet...
Editor's Note from Michael Salewski: Essential oils are powerful medicine. They can be used orally, topically and through aromatherapy to achieve amazing results.

When it comes to food, many of us do not take the same care in choosing what we buy and eat as we would in a new car or our next elected government official. We might look for color and ripeness but most of us do not think much about what we are supporting when we choose food for tonight’s dinner...
Editors Note: Holiday Festivities – what a great time of year to check around your community for local farmers, ranchers and growers you can get to know and support with your food dollars. As the author, Brook Le Van, states, “you will taste the difference…” when you eat locally grown foods.

Editor's Note from Sherri Carter: When I first saw this recipe, I just knew I had to try it and I'm so glad I did! As my husband said, it was OMiG- oh my it's good! What a delightful treat you can feel good about eating.

This year, skip the resolutions about food and instead simply hit the “Reset” button. Like an electronic device, that button will troubleshoot and get you back on track. With food, that “reset” starts by balancing your glucose levels.

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: Summer is full of fire and heat and can be irritating to the body. Since it is predominantly pitta season, we must take certain precautions to keep pitta dosha in balance. Pitta individuals will benefit from eating foods with sweet, bitter and astringent rasas (tastes); wearing clothes with cool blue and green colors and exerting minimal to moderate energy towards tasks. Practicing gentle, restorative yoga and including a short daily meditation will also help keep pitta in balance. This lovely video from the Chopra Center outlines steps to take for summer pitta season and suggests some essential oils that will keep pitta cool and under control. Enjoy. Namaste
