Men, I don't just speak to you, I speak to all people. We are all part of this creation called “man” and “women.” We all share the fruits of our labours, our struggles, our successes, our failures...
Editor's Note from David Arenson: The divine masculine archetype has been perverted to serve our ends of dominating. It is men who have misused their power to obstruct justice and stimulate a fear-based society. As a result, the collective suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder. These times are ending, and a more rewarding union between masculine and feminine energies is arising from the dust of obliteration we have created. It is now time for men and women to be free.

For over twenty years as physician, I’ve witnessed, time and again, the healing power of tears. Tears are your body’s release valve for stress, sadness, grief, anxiety, and frustration. Also, you can have tears of joy, say when a child is born or tears of relief when a difficulty has passed. In my own life, I am grateful when I can cry...

Eat less and exercise more.
Is this what you hear often?
You’ve worked out on the bike for the last 6 weeks and instead of losing weight you gained 5 lbs. You feel your metabolism fell asleep...
Editor´s Note: This article explains the effects of acupuncture on weight loss. I've found in my clinical practice that acupuncture helps a lot with cravings, improves digestion, and decreases stress. As the author explains, acupuncture is a small piece to the bigger puzzle of lifestyle, diet, and exercise changes. It is a great tool for overall health!
Editor's Note: Milky oats—oats picked in the milky stage—and oatstraw are considered nervines and are specifics for someone who’s exhausted from stress or prolonged illness. Oats are also considered nutritive, and so may be too sweet for some and too damp for those with kapha constitutions. If doing something I know to be inherently stressful (e.g., a long drive or something mentally taxing), I like to make an infusion of milky oats—about 1 tablespoon to 1 cup of hot water. I usually make a quart and drink it throughout the day. Herbalist Susun Weed also suggests oatstraw baths to provide bone support...

All that to say, a recently published review in the journal Frontiers in Psychiatry has revealed that a regular yoga practice can have positive effects on various mental health disorders, such as depression and sleep complaints, as well as improve symptoms of illnesses such as schizophrenia and ADHD.
