Interviewed by Susan Lutz, ATH Editor of Organic Living
Pregnancy can offer challenges on the organic path - from finding time and energy to shop and cook, to managing health and stress and of course, ultimately the birth. Lauren, author of Ginger is the New Pink: My journey towards healing with vegan whole foods, and editor at Crazysexylife.com returns to All Things Healing to share some of her experiences of keeping up with a healthy life for her and her baby on the way...
Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Learning is one way to keep young - always using the brain helps the body work better longer. Dr Waters' rottweilers hold many more keys to longevity. What can a 16 year old rottweiler teach us about life?

A Note from ATH President, John Sewell: Genetically modified foods are showing up in many of the foods we all grew up with and the ramifications regarding your health and the environment are staggering. According to the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) "Several animal studies indicate serious health risks associated with genetically modified (GM) food," including infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, faulty insulin regulation, and changes in major organs and the gastrointestinal system...

Have you ever heard the word ama before? It’s an important word in the Ayurvedic system to describe the toxic waste, sticky gooey sludge that builds up in the channels of the body when your digestive fire (agni) becomes weak due to overeating, improper food combining, too many cold liquids mixed with your meals, stress, or a compromised immune system...
Editor's Note from Lexi Yoga: According to Ayurvedic systems, most of us carry toxic build up in our bodies. This is called Ama - which is when the digestive fire (agni) becomes weak, due to our lifestyle of unhealthy eating and stress. Melina Meza shares with us the symptoms of Ama and ways to clean out your body for spring time.

ATH Co-Editor of Chiropractic
Based on the physiology of the nervous system, we know that chiropractic works for more than just back pain. The Chiropractic adjustment can have profound effects on quality of life by improving the function of all body systems. Knowing this, shouldn’t every person be allowed access to chiropractic care regardless of symptoms, age, and culture?
Editor's Note from Beth Wisniewski: Today, the state of mental health care in the United States is extremely poor. Chiropractic has a rich history in the mental health arena and had high success rates in the past. On top of receiving chiropractic adjustments the mental health patients were required to eat fresh foods grown in gardens on-site. By the early 1960s these facilities were forced to close due to changing laws however it is time to reexamine our approach to mental health in this country. Chiropractic should be part of a holistic approach to better serve this under served population.

Dogs, like people, are intricate beings. Organs, bones, muscles, and fluids, and all of this housed and protected by the largest organ of the body: the skin. Whether thick or thin, tough or delicate, skin is alive with its own ecosystem, needing a balance of strength and elasticity, of moisture and amino acids, a certain spongy give that can produce goose bumps when caressed, or give cushion to a fall...
Editor´s Note from Cathy Alinovi: What function do paw pads serve? They’re not just for walking/running – and, even the pad way up high on their wrist serves a purpose. Dogs’ pads need care and protection just as the rest of their body does.

A few weeks ago I received an angry note from a person who considers himself a naturalist attacking me for suggesting that someone might safely eat bacon, occasionally. I would remind him that people 100 years ago ate far more unhealthy food than bacon...
