Pregnancy can offer challenges on the organic path - from finding time and energy to shop and cook, to managing health and stress and of course, ultimately the birth.

Is there a jerk where you work? Have you ever worked with an honors graduate from Bully Bootcamp who intimidated, threatened, humiliated, or dominated other people?...
Editor´s Note from Doris Helge: A bully in your work environment? Because traditional approaches toward bullying, abuse at work and mobbing don’t work, you feel powerless, helpless and the negative chatter of your inner critic escalates. Elevate your confidence, success and personal empowerment with a new approach that will make your anxiety, fear and stress disappear.

Homeopathy can be taken as an alternative to conventional painkillers in most situations. It is safe for children, in pregnancy, breast feeding mothers, old age and terminal illness. Homeopathic medication can be given along with pain-killers in conditions where analgesics cannot be stopped...
Editor's Note: Homeopathic treatment is tremendously effective in both acute and chronic pain situations. In this concise overview, Sonal presents some of the more common types of pain that homeopaths see. She gives some examples of remedies that can be used in acute pain situations but stresses the need for whole person homeopathic treatment where there is ongoing, chronic pain.

Stress. We all have it. The question is, “How do I get rid of it?!”
The answer lies not only in eliminating the causes, but also in learning to manage life’s curveballs. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine are useful in the management end. Lifestyle counseling can help with the causes. How can acupuncture help, and what can you do stop stress in its tracks?...

Odd, polarized rhythms turn the pulse of daily life erratic, and the world wobbles from the stress of extremes. One minute the routines of daily life slow to a crawl, and the next, a rapid, staccato pace jars nervous systems into hyper activity. The lack of a consistent identifiable backbeat makes confusion probable, especially when certain situations, which don’t appear to be significant, surge forward, and others, which actually seem to matter, fall apart. This flux is part of a powerful astral turbulence generated by a collision between Mercury Direct on Friday, February 28 and Mars Retrograde on Saturday, March 1...

Do you ever agree to do things only because you are assuming that they will never happen?
These promises can vary in severity from agreeing to raise your nephews if anything happens to your sister and brother-in-law, to telling your friend that you will drive her to the airport at 4:30 a.m. if she can't find a ride, to saying you will stay on the PTA board one more year if a replacement for you isn't found. Pre-nuptial agreements also come to mind...
Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Penny makes the statement that, for her, it’s not so much that she loves to exercise, she loves how it makes her feel after she’s done it. With so much daily stress and so many competing for our attention, exercising because of the way it makes us feel afterwards can be more of a motivation than wanting to lose weight or get toned. She says “exercise is the warm-up” for every other part of our life...

Most people are in crisis – being OVERWHELMED and STRESSED is the norm. I speak to and work with lots of groups and I’m always hearing the same stories of fatigue and overwork. We all know we should take care of ourselves, but we rarely do it...

How many people do you know who suffer from occasional (or frequent) sleeplessness? How many colleagues have you overheard in the break room, pouring that third cup of coffee, and recounting the way they just lay there, staring at the ceiling...
Editor’s Note: Acupuncture is highly effective for stress relief. This may be one of the major reasons why it is so versatile. So many conditions, including insomnia are caused or aggravated by unmanaged stress.
