Holistic Nutrition

by Rachel Webster,
ATH Asst. Editor of Exercise & Fitness

I recently had a conversation with someone about eating to fit in. More specifically being bullied about eating differently than everyone else. This one sparked a little something in me because its incredibly common and I think it's a big part of why people are unsuccessful when they try to make positive changes in their lives. It happens in our own homes...


Editor´s Note: Ever dread having meals with other people because you always tend to be swayed into eating something you later beat yourself up about? Does someone you know try and sabotage your healthy eating efforts? Time to nip that in the bud. Here's what you can do. The next time someone refers to you as a health nut in a derogatory way, take it as a compliment and remember this quote: "Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect." Mark Twain. Rememeber, the majority aren't getting it right when it comes to nutrition.

Below are a few suggestions to get your children on the right path...

Healthy eating costs too much. Healthy food takes too long to prepare. I have a tendency to disagree. I will agree that it takes some thought and time to make a shift towards a healthier way of eating, but in general, I don’t believe it costs too much. Below are a few approaches to begin making some changes that will last.


Editor's Note: Dr. Manley is author of the award winning Human Body Detectives, her children’s educational series of story-telling books, eBooks, and iPhone/iPad apps. In this article, she gives some great advice on ways we can make healthy eating easy, affordable and tasty, all at the same time.

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.
