Every year in the month of October, before the calendar turns over to November, we get on our masks and costumes to encounter the ‘spirits of Halloween’. Why?
Masks cover the hidden and are created to represent and convey the camouflaged concepts behind them...

All Hallow's Eve, Hallow E'en, Halloween, Day of the Dead, Samhain. By whatever name it has been called, this special night preceding All Hallows day (November 1st) has been considered for centuries as one of the most magical nights of the year. A night of power, when the veil that separates our world from the Otherworld is at its thinnest...
Editor's Note from Sophia Hansen: I just love history and what better topic to learn the history of than Halloween this month!

You don’t have to be a health care professional, a doctor, a philosopher, or even a scientist to know that our body is an amazing organism. Just think….. one sperm, one ovum meet, dividing into 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512 …… and over the course of the next 9 months the most amazing miracle known to man is growing, changing, adapting, specializing cells, and bringing LIFE to another human being...
Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro: As Dr. Tate Gentile says in his article, we are all taught two main principles growing up: Don't do drugs and don't call people names. Unfortunately, the medical culture does not follow these rules. If these principles are important to you and your family, there are better options out there.
Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Winter doesn't mean organic vegetables have to stop ending up on the dinner plate. Look at the bounty that can endure the cool, winter months.

As Autumn arrives, we fall back, starting our preparation for another spring. It is time to go deep, deep into the earth, deep into ourselves. Who are we? Who do we wish to have “spring ahead” in 6 months when the earth shifts yet again...
Editor's Note from Eileen Gonzalez: Irene Frances Kabot is a teacher, spiritual counselor and trained Energy Therapy Practitioner, who understands the effect of the higher vibrations. “We are evolving! This is the first time in human history that we are witnessing our own evolution. These children are not so different anymore. Many of us are experiencing the shift in the energy of our planet,” Irene explains.

We have all heard about how important it is for our physical and mental health to take time to recharge and unwind to reduce stress. But we don’t often hear how important it is to our creative side. Nor do we seem to hear about “creative” ways to unwind...
Editor's Note from Sue O'Callahan: I love the spirit of this article and how it inspires us to unwind creatively. For many, carving out personal, quiet time to nurture and express our creative side is a tall order given the fast pace of our lives. This fall seems like the perfect time to goal ourselves one creative project or endeavor a month. Just one. To sing, draw, paint, photograph, dance or peruse a gallery.

Three years ago I was sitting in a hostel in Singapore reading a fabulous article in Yoga Journal about the healing art of Thai Massage. I had just gotten my land legs back after eight months of cruising the South Pacific and Eastern Asia as an on-board Massage Therapist and Yoga Teacher...
Editor’s Note: Thai Massage has been steadily gaining popularity in the West in recent years as a practice that lies somewhere between the worlds of massage and yoga. It seemingly combines the best of these two worlds...
Massage & Bodywork

I am humbled every day by the power of healing using the integrative medicine approach. The arthritic patients I see benefit tremendously by using less invasive (and less expensive), customized treatment programs. One great example is my dear client Margaret and her wonderful King Charles Cavalier, Ariel, who suffers from one of the worst cases of hip and elbow dysplasia I've ever seen. If you were to see Ariel run in to our practice to get her monthly acupuncture you would think that I am exaggerating!
Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: While they are hard to find, integrative veterinarians provide the widest variety of healthcare options. Here's Ariel's story.
