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

 

Family & Parenting

I've long had this fantasy that Western medicine will merge with Eastern, that medical schools will absorb ancient wisdom and simpler treatments into a blended approach to health...

 

Editor´s Note: This is a great patient testimonial for chronic headache relief. The author explains how and why acupuncture works in a reader-friendly way. I hope her positive experience with acupuncture encourages other people to try this amazing ancient practice.

 

Acupuncture/TCM


by Monika Haas

The discussion about the perils of ingesting essential oils dates back to the beginning of Modern Aromatherapy in the early 1970s. How do we know what is right for us? Before we can decide, we need to take a look at the various schools of thought in aromatherapy: the British, the French and the Californian/American...

Editor's Note from Julie Lachman: What would it to get this school on the right track? This school receives kids who've been expelled from other schools. Yet, they have no weapons, suicides, or expulsions. Why? It's what the kids are eating. Can school violence be prevented? Appleton school district shows us how.

 

Naturopathy


by Virginia Iversen

Kirtan and swadhaya are both Bhakti Yoga practices. Bhakti Yoga originated thousands of years ago in ancient India...

 

Editor's Note: There are four traditional schools of Yoga, and these are: Jnana Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Karma Yoga, and Raja Yoga. While a Yogi or Yogini may focus exclusively on one of these approaches to Yoga, that is quite uncommon. For the vast majority of practitioners of Yoga, a blending of the four traditional types of Yoga is most appropriate. One follows his or her own predisposition in balancing these different forms of Yoga. This piece helps to better explain Bhakti Yoga.

New York is a city notoriously short on space, but rooftop farming is on the rise.

While the practice is currently an environmental rather than a financial trend, meet "Bright Farm Systems" a company that specializes in providing rooftop farms to schools, non- profits and corporations.  They are banking on that the cost savings will soon be a real incentive.

 

Think Green


by Dr. Paul Jarard

Kids live active, stressful lives. They attend school, do homework, participate in competitive sports, play video games, and meet their friends at the mall. In addition, they deal with divorce, new schools, tough neighborhoods, illnesses, bullying, and pressure to get excellent grades...

 

Editor's Note: Several studies show that children who practice yoga have less stress. This article describes one such students where students learn how to breath their way through difficult situations, how to refocus their thoughts and look at difficult situations differently, how to have better overall health from practicing asanas (poses) as well, and more. This looks like a vialbe alternative/addition to school curriculum. Namaste!

 

Yoga


 

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: There is so much more that we can give these kids besides prescriptions, IEP meetings and doctor visits. I am a parent of a special needs child... I speak from experience. Let meditation/mindfulness into your life, your schools... and see the magic that can happen to all kids. And, while you're at it, truly look at the nutritional value of your child's school lunch program (check out an article here about just that). Food, like meditation, is also brain power. Our kids deserve all the brain zing a ding ding they can get.
