Editor´s Note: Protein bars seem to be the perfect source of nourishment, especially immediately after a good workout, but is the tasty treat really that healthy for us? Take a look at the clip to see what may be hiding in the delicious bite, besides protein.
Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Everything is energy. Food carries it's own vibrations and frequencies. Certain foods vibrate at a higher frequency than others. For example a Twinkie is all processed and has no nutritional value. A carrot picked fresh from the garden is full of live energy and carries a higher vibration. Choose wisely.

Licensed for more than 20 years, Bower sees both children and adults with ADHD, and says for them acupuncture is a complimentary form of medicine.
It works well in addition to other treatments, such as behavioral therapy and nutritional plans. Acupuncture is based on the theory that the body's energy or "qi" flows freely when you are well. But, it can become blocked or weakened...
Editor's Note: This is a great article explaining ADHD, which is a very common condition affecting many children and adults. Acupuncture treatments are used to balance the person's organ systems and internal energy, which in turn alleviates the symptoms of hyperactivity, impulsivity, and anxiety among other things. A patient's own experience is highlighted as to how well the treatments have worked for her. Acupuncture is a great alternative or adjunct to medication and other therapies.

Last year I wrote a story for All Things Healing reviewing the nutritional impact of a lunch served at my daughter’s public school. Ahhh, another season has come and gone, and I feel it’s time to check in… to see if there has been some change…
Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: Eden wrote a follow up article regarding the lunches schools are serving in our country to our children to this very day. This new article is a follow up to her original article a year ago and it's worth the few minutes it takes to read it. This is a call to action to all parents, an intervention is desperately needed. We recommend you go to the schools, witness the school lunches with your own eyes. It will be a real eye opener. We encourage you to speak up, use your voice, talk to those in charge, and take a look at the websites she's recommended. Your voice is needed in the fight for healthy food for all of our children. It's all of our futures. Thank you Eden, once again for bringing this to all of our attention. See Part 1
