Imagine a nice chalet in the Swiss mountains. And now imagine its garden. When I came home after staying two months abroad, tons of weeds blocked the pathway to my house. Yesterday I decided to get rid of it. The green had grown so high that it was difficult to uproot. I ripped it up while telling myself constantly . . .
Editor's Note from Natalie Jovanic: For me, Fanny is an inspirational role model for creating a happy relationship with your partner. It's always a special gift when she shares a story of how they live their relationship. She shares her wisdom with women so that they can have the same. In this article, she gives you advice on how you can re-ignite the spark in your relationship. Enjoy the read!

I came across the phrase ‘Loving Yourself 101’ in a magazine a few months ago. I don’t remember what the article was about, only that it was witty and funny and personal in that moving-without-being-sappy way that good writers can do...
Editor's Note from Karen Adler: Never have I experienced such difficulty in writing an article for All Things Healing as I have in bringing together my thoughts and feelings around the issue of self-love. Loving Yourself 101 was an idea I came up with four months ago as the basis for an art therapy workshop. Since then, I've advertised the workshop, got sick and had to cancel, the venue became unavailable, I've procrastinated endlessly, chickened out big-time, my confidence has plummeted and I've questioned my whole worth as an art therapist. All as a result of doubting the validity and necessity of loving oneself - go figure! Physician - heal thyself, i say.

I'm 3 months pregnant and my doctor is encouraging me to get the flu shot. Is this safe for the baby?
Although we have all suffered from influenza (flu) one time or another, many people don't realize that the flu can be a severe illness...
Editor's Note: Dr. Feder does a good job of making you think in this article about the CDC recommendation of a flu shot during pregnancy. Flu shots contain mercury, yet they tell you to stay away from mercury ladened fish while pregnant. Mercury is a known neurotoxin that crosses the blood brain barrier (meaning it gets in the brain).
Editor's Note from Melanie Channell: The Swedish Covenant Hospital in Chicago has implemented a Laughter Yoga program for the cancer patients receiving chemotherapy. Laughter Yoga has proven to reduce the patients stress levels, raises their spirits, and helps them tolerate their therapy better. It has been such a successful program, that the hospital staff started their own monthly practice.

Throughout life we will go through many changes—physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually—yet the most dramatic occur during infancy and adolescence, the two periods where growth is the most rapid. In the first six months of life a human baby will develop more than at any other point in her life, gaining...
Editor's Note from Sophia Hansen: Dr. Steven Farmer's article is an important reminder of the only constant in life is change. When we're able to surrender to the natural changes that occur in our lives, we realize how much fuller our lives become. Dr. Farmer's article about Butterfly spirit helps give helpful tips for ourselves and our children to embrace changes instead of fearing them.
