Most of us have been taught to believe that good nutrition is simply a function of eating the right food and taking the right supplements. Of course, this is true, but there’s more to the equation...
Editor´s Note: Marc David’s savvy approach to eating is powerful, ingenious and sums up that we are all part of an integrative process of existence. This article, “The Secrets of Eating Psychology” puts everything in perspective on how the mind and body are part of a continuous sequence that not only feed off each other, but protect, support and in an odd sort of way, even love each other. David takes the negative connotations out of eating and shows us that eating and thinking can harmoniously work together.

They can be given as an acute treatment in place of puffers but more importantly, professional treatment–working with the whole person–can cure asthma entirely...

According to an article in the Washington Post, we are in the midst of a boom in home vegetable gardening not seen since 1975. With gas at an all-time high and food prices soaring, it is not hard to see why. But if the motivation is simple, the benefits are more complex.

Monteil discusses how 'biodynamics' is the new gold standard, a holistic approach that links the entire eco-system into one, creating a self-sustained community, that nature intended, recycling everything back into the environment.
