s I write this, I’m still reveling in the memories of this past weekend’s Baja Birthday Bash surf trip to Mexico with my gal pals. While it’s not quite yet my birthday, we all decided there’s no better time to celebrate our friendship than the present. This group of women and I have been through thick and thin together and I couldn’t imagine my life without them. We all feel fortunate for the opportunity to help one another navigate the twists and turns that make up the stories of our lives. As we enter this season of gratitude and thanksgiving, my thoughts are also with two fellow publishers in the Natural Awakenings family. Their demonstration of gratitude as they recover from great loss inspired me to share their story with you, through our Gulf Coast publisher Meredith Montgomery. Her letter follows: As I worked on this month’s issue, I listened to an interview with Tom Petty where he recalled the time an arsonist set his home on fire while he was in it. The only material possessions remaining after the fire were the clothes on his back, yet the horrific experience had a positive influence on his life. “I’m sure it had a great effect on the music I did, because I came back with this very positive, happy kind of music, that I didn’t want to go into any dark corner or anything like that,” he said. “I was just so glad to be alive and to have escaped something like that.” I still had the late singer’s optimism on my mind when I was alerted a day later that the publisher of Natural Awakenings Long Island, Kelly Martinsen, woke up in the middle of the night to an electrical fire burning her house to the ground. She posted on Facebook, “We had a fire and I know that there is word out there that we ‘lost everything’. I want to assure everyone that this is not the case. While our house may be totaled, ‘everything’ I need was found the morning after the fire as I held my kids (all three!) and my husband in my driveway…for now we have no needs.” She then went on to thank Waleska Sallaberry who was staying with her and who woke Kelly in time to get everyone out of the house. Waleska publishes Natural Awakenings Puerto Rico and relocated to New York with her children after Hurricane Maria so she could enroll them in school. Her husband is still in Puerto Rico and together they are doing everything they can to help rebuild their beautiful surfing village. After having her life turned upside down and then witnessing fire demolish Kelly’s home, Waleska posted a picture of her new 2018 planner which reads “Best Year Ever” in beautiful script on the cover. As headlines are flooded with reports of hurricanes, fires, shootings and the untimely passing of familiar faces, these positive stories shine a bright light on the power of perspective. What if we all lived with such unattachment to material things, and maintained a peaceful sense of trust in what lies ahead? Thanksgiving arrives this month as a reminder to feel gratitude for all that we have—especially those things that can’t be bought or burned down. Whether it’s a beautiful sunset, a compliment from a stranger or the embrace of a loved one, those are the things that can make us feel the richest. With gratitude,

newsbriefs Organic Dinner and Cocktails


fter two years of serving an extensive breakfast and lunch menu, that is 100 percent non-GMO and 98 percent organic, GOODONYA, in Encinitas, is excited to announce their new dinner and drinks menu. Kris Buchanan, owner of GOODONYA, shares, “We know our community cares about ingredients and where our food comes from. People wanted us to open for dinner but honestly, we were reluctant—I mean we go to bed at 9 p.m. But seriously, it wasn’t a decision we took lightly. We had to create the menu around what we could find that was organic. It’s a little bit Italian, a little Mexican and very California.” Of course, says Buchanan, being open for dinner brought up the subject of alcohol. “We didn’t want to be a bar, but we did want to be able to offer the healthiest cocktails possible. Finding organic alcohol is very limited, so we set out to be, at the minimum, 100 percent non-GMO.” GOODONYA offers an amazing selection of drinks, including dry-farmed, organic and biodynamic wine, some that have virtually zero sugar, glutenreduced local beers, as well as herbal cocktails. “There are foodies out there, who when they choose to drink, have to forget about their standards,” explains Buchanan. “We like to say ‘drink like you eat.’” Open since 2001, GOODONYA’s only current location is in Encinitas. Buchanan previously had five other locations but has sold or closed them over the years. “This menu didn’t work in other parts of the county and I am not willing to sell anything anymore that I don’t stand behind 100 percent,” she affirms. Location: 1051 S. Coast Hwy. 101, Encinitas. For more information, call 858-2648550 or visit Open from 6:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. Mention Natural Awakenings and receive $5 off any dinner entrée.

hat’s better than a local, organic family farm? How about a family-owned business that helps local, organic family farms perform better by curating and customizing CSA packages for homes, businesses and schools throughout the County of San Diego. “If you’ve ever been part of a farm Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), you might have noticed that the variety of produce you receive can be a little lacking,” says Janis Garcia, co-founder and general manager of Daily Harvest Express. “For instance, as much as people love kale, getting two pounds of kale every week for a month or more can be a bit overwhelming.” That’s where Daily Harvest Express comes in. “We work with a wide range of organic farmers throughout San Diego who, collectively, offer a stunning diversity of fresh foods and hand-crafted artisanal goods throughout the year,” explains Janis. “Fresh fruit, veggies, bread, spices, pastured eggs, dairy products and more.” While one farm might only specialize in a small handful of crops, the entirety of the farms that Daily Harvest Express partners with in the region allows CSA customers to get a wide diversity of food products in their weekly packages—and they can even customize their packages to their exact specifications. “Think of it as the difference between being able to listen to only one album over and over again versus being able to listen to a curated list of the best music

available. And you can also pick and choose your favorite songs whenever you want,” affirms Janis. Another improvement from traditional CSAs? Daily Harvest Express has “mobile farm stands", which are custom-upfitted box trucks that bring the farmers' market directly to you. These farmer’s markets on wheels serve both corporate clients and public events, helping make fresh, local food even more accessible to everyone. The cofounders of Daily Harvest Express, Janis and “Papa Rafael” Garcia, didn’t expect to start a new business a decade ago. In fact, they were happily retired newlyweds. Janis’ background was in sales and marketing in the healthcare industry and Rafael had recently retired after finishing his career as an executive at a Fortune 500 company. “He started his career working in farm labor at the age of 14 after emigrating from Mexico,” shares Janis. However, the couple saw a problem and an opportunity they couldn’t ignore. With the help of Rafael’s daughter Ivonne and a handful of other employees, they’ve steadily grown the business year after year, adding new farmers, product offerings, delivery options and customers. What do they consider the key to their success? A big marketing budget? Not quite. The company has grown purely through word of mouth from satisfied customers and corporate wellness officers who finally have easy access to fresh, organic food and area farmers who have another source of stable income. The Garcias intend to continue focusing locally for the foreseeable future, providing healthier food for as many San Diego residents as possible. “Our top priority is San Diego. That’s where our hearts are. Maybe we’ll also inspire other similar businesses to start elsewhere in the state or country,” adds Janis. If you’d like to taste the best that San Diego’s organic farmers have to offer while also supporting a local, homegrown business, consider signing up for a Daily Harvest Express box at

Preventing, Reversing and Managing Diabetes

Naturally by Linda Sechrist


ore health practitioners today are recognizing both the mind-body connection, as well as energetic and metaphysical insights into preventing and reversing illnesses. As a result, those facing diabetes and other health challenges are accessing contemporary resources such as Louise L. Hay’s explanation of the emotional roots of disease in You Can Heal Your Life, and the medical science and natural methods explained by health researcher and author Gary Null, Ph.D., in No More Diabetes: A Complete Guide to Preventing, Treating, and Overcoming Diabetes. Applying a “both” rather than an “either” approach illuminates the importance of recognizing the ways our thoughts, emotions and lifestyle choices can impact chronic illness and long-term health.

Two Perspectives


Hay suggests that this metabolic disorder may be rooted in a feeling of being deprived of life’s sweetness and longing for what might have been, accompanied by a great need to control deep sorrow. Such chronic unease can show up as Type 1, or insulin-dependent, diabetes; Type 2, or non-insulin-dependent diabetes; latent autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA), a slowly progressing variation of Type 1; or gestational diabetes, which occurs during pregnancy. Eavesdropping on our repetitive inner mind chatter and observing its impact on outer experiences can reveal faulty thinking that disrupts the mind-body connection. Hay, a firm believer in the power of affirmations to send a message to the subconscious mind, recommends them to aid healing. For diabetes, she suggests, “This moment is filled with joy. I now choose to experience the sweetness of today.” Null cites medical evidence that explains how the physical causes of diabetes are related to the pancreatic production of the hormone insulin and the body’s use of it,

together with rollercoaster blood sugar levels determined by food selections, stress, sleeplessness, insufficient rest and lack of exercise. His approach for preventing, reversing or managing this debilitating condition is to raise awareness of the physical, behavioral and mental causes that lead to its emergence, and making healthy lifestyle choices that regulate blood sugar levels.

Glucose, the human body’s key source of cellular energy, is the end product of the digestive system breaking down carbohydrates, proteins and fats for absorption in the intestines. From there, it passes into the bloodstream. Glucose also supplies energy for the brain. Normal blood glucose levels vary throughout the day. For healthy individuals, a fasting blood sugar level upon awakening is less than 100 milligrams (mg) per deciliter (dl) of blood. Before meals, normal levels are 70 to 99 mg/dl; otherwise, 100 to 125. Consistent readings above 126 indicate that lifestyle changes are needed to avoid eventual progression into full Type 2 diabetes. When there’s an inability to efficiently transport glucose from the blood into cells, cells don’t receive the energy they need to function properly. “Elevated glucose levels contribute to blood vessel damage, high blood pressure and inflammation among other issues. High glucose causes insulin levels to spike in an effort to draw the glucose into cells. This stresses the pancreas and causes a sugar crash, called hypoglycemia, which can lead individuals to make impulsive, poor food choices,” advises Marcy Kirshenbaum, a board-certified clinical nutritionist and owner of Enhance Nutrition, in Northbrook, Illinois. She notes, “Elevated sugar and insulin levels raise triglycerides, a fat that circulates in the blood, and cholesterol, specifically the LDL (low-density lipoprotein) levels. Triglycerides and cholesterol are important measures of heart health. Triglyceride levels of 150 mg/dl in fasting blood is a risk factor for a stroke or heart attack.” natural awakenings

Early Heads-Up

According to the American Diabetes Association, 8.1 million of the 29.1 million individuals diagnosed with diabetes were previously unaware of any early symptoms such as dry mouth, excessive thirst, frequent urination, constant hunger (even after meals), unusual weight gain or loss and lack of energy. “Many individuals only learn of their condition from a doctorordered routine blood test such as the A1C glycated hemoglobin procedure, which reads blood sugar levels over a three-month period,” advises Dr. Nancy Iankowitz, a board-certified family nurse practitioner and founding director of Holistic and Integrative Healing, in Holmes, New York. Individuals that consume large amounts of simple carbohydrates and sugars, are overweight or are exceedingly sedentary and eat unhealthy processed foods, have a higher risk for developing Type 2 diabetes. Iankowitz’s effective, patientcentered practice follows a practical, four-month healing plan that includes tracking foods, moods, blood pressure, sleeping habits and exercise, all necessary to manage or reverse Type 2 diabetes.

Effective Diet Choices

Making the highest-impact food choices is critical in the earliest stages of diabetes. That’s why nutritionist and holistic integrative health practitioner Saskia Kleinert, an independent practitioner who also serves as director of the Emeryville Health & Wellness Center, in California, helps patients integrate dietary changes into everyday life. “Patient education includes the necessity of eating low-glycemic index foods and reducing blood glucose levels, while increasing healthy fats with nuts, avocado and olive oil,” advises Kleinert. She notes that antioxidant-rich plant foods are another key component of an effective dietary plan for all age groups. The role of exercise is also vital for those needing to reverse pre-diabetes or managing diabetes aided by 12

insulin injections. “Exercise increases the muscle cell’s demand for glucose, moving it out of the blood into muscle cells that use it as fuel, and so lowering insulin levels,” explains Jamie Coughlan, a naturopathic doctor who practices in Pleasanton and Pleasant Hill, California. Dr. Angelo Baccellieri, owner of Westchester Wellness Medicine, in Harrison, New York, introduces patients to intermittent fasting, an eating pattern that helps treat insulin resistance and control blood sugar. “The concept is predicated on going 14 to 16 hours without food, replicating how our primitive ancestors ate. They feasted when food was available and fasted during famines, sometimes going several days without eating,” advises Baccellieri, who notes that intermittent fasting can be done one day a week. “Our biochemistry actually does very well with this approach, which isn’t hard to do when your last meal is at 7 p.m. and you skip breakfast and delay lunch the next day until 1 p.m. You can drink water with lemon, teas and black coffee throughout. By 1 p.m., the body has been 18 hours without protein and carbohydrates, allowing insulin levels to remain at a low level. Excess insulin from too much sugar shifts the body into a storage mode. Having no sugar stores available, the body can then switch into a ketogenic state that allows the body to burn fat for fuel,” explains Baccellieri. Herbs such as turmeric reduce inflammation. Berberine can help cells use glucose efficiently. Supplements such as vitamin C, B-complex, resveratrol and pycnogenol (pine bark extract) can raise antioxidant levels, in which most pre-diabetic and diabetic individuals are deficient, according to a study published in PubMed. Cautious health professionals tailor supplement recommendations to each patient.

Helpful Weight Loss

In The Diabetes Breakthrough, based on a scientifically tested way to reverse diabetes through weight loss, Dr. Osama Hamdy and Sheri R. Colberg, Ph.D., explain a home-based version of the 12-week Why WAIT (Weight

Achievement and Intensive Treatment) program offered at the Joslin Diabetes Center, affiliated with Harvard Medical School, in Boston. WAIT allows participants to reach their weight and blood glucose goals, along with improvements in blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and liver and kidney function. The program’s success is due to doable increases in exercising that put greater emphasis on strengthening muscles; effective ways to change bad habits; successful portion control; healthy alternatives to favorite foods; carbohydrate counting; and meals composed of the right balance of complex carbohydrates and antioxidant-rich plant foods, protein and fat, all to achieve optimum body weight and diabetes control.

No Quick Fix

Restoration of health begins with the most important lifestyle changes. n Replace processed and sugary foods in meals and snacks with nutrient dense, whole foods. n Determine possible food sensitivities with an elimination diet. n Eat some protein with every meal. n Eliminate environmental toxins. n Perform some form of cardiovascular exercise and resistance training at least three to five times a week. n Add stress-relieving practices such as yoga, tai chi or qigong. According to Hamdy, “On average, diabetes has the potential to rob you of more than 12 years of life, while dramatically reducing the quality of life for more than 20 years through chronic pain, loss of mobility, blindness, chronic dialysis and heart disease.” Such serious consequences also include stroke, hearing impairment and Alzheimer’s, he adds. All provide good reasons to live responsibly every day, cherishing longterm goals of laying claim to the best possible health. Linda Sechrist is a senior staff writer for Natural Awakenings.

Therapeutic Lifestyle Coaching for Diabetes by Vickie Nickerson


ccording to the American Diabetes Association, 1.5 million Americans are diagnosed with diabetes each year. Once a doctor diagnoses someone with diabetes, prescription medications are often recommended and a treatment plan is prescribed. However, there remains a gap between prescription medication and implementation of the treatment program. That’s where therapeutic lifestyle coaching comes into play. Lifestyle coaching fills an important gap in our healthcare system for patients diagnosed with diabetes by helping them to improve their overall health. A study by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention concluded that a “diabetes health coaching program can improve glycemic control and reduce diabetes distress in patients with high levels of these at baseline.” A personalized health coach helps those with diabetes navigate their way to glycemic control for better health and happiness. A health coach guides clients through sustainable health and lifestyle changes while providing support, encouragement and motivation to adopt these changes for a lifetime. By enrolling in a therapeutic lifestyle program, patients will engage in self-management decisions to improve their overall health outcome. This learned self-management can serve to improve quality of life, maintain a healthier body weight, and lessen diabetes stress in both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. Navigating a diabetes diagnosis can be daunting, but with the help of a health coach, diabetes patients don’t have to do it alone. Vickie Nickerson is the owner of Envision Personalized Health located at 4620 Alvarado Canyon Rd., Ste. 14, in San Diego.

Humpback Holler Why Whales Leap High

Humpback whales are famous for their prodigious leaps from the water. A recent paper published in Marine Mammal Science proposes that breaching the surface and making a big splash serves as an acoustic telegram to communicate with far-off pods. The phenomenon may be compared to a distant drumbeat, which probably carries farther than the whales’ signature songs. Former University of Queensland marine biologist Ailbhe S. Kavanagh, Ph.D., and her colleagues observed 76 humpback groups off the coast of Australia for 200 hours between 2010 and 2011 and found that breaching is much more common when pods are at least 2.5 miles apart, with more local slapping of fins and flukes when fellow whales are nearby.

Oil Spoil How to Properly Discard Cooking Oil Africa Studio/

Holiday meal traditions that kick off with a Thanksgiving turkey and continue through festive meals for New Year’s can produce lots of cooking oil and grease waste. Following proper disposal procedures protects both the environment and home plumbing. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency reports that vegetable oils and animal fats share common physical properties and create similar environmental effects as petroleum spills, including coating and suffocating animals and plants; polluting food supplies and habitats; fouling shorelines; and clogging water treatment plants. Cooking oil and kitchen grease is the number one cause of stopped-up sewer pipes, according to Earth 911. Grease sticks to the lining of plumbing pipes in small particles, which catch onto each other and accumulate until the growing mass can block and backup sewage lines, leading to a nasty mess and sometimes costly repairs. This potential problem can be avoided simply and easily. n For small amounts of kitchen grease such as lard, shortening or tallow that inevitably go down the drain, flush with cold water so that it solidifies, making it less likely to stick to pipes. n Freeze small amounts of used cooking fats, oils and grease in a container like a used coffee can with a tight-sealing lid, then place it in the trash. n Larger and unfrozen quantities of used cooking oil may be taken to an area recycling center for proper disposal year-round. No special container is required and the liquid is emptied from the consumer’s container onsite. Don’t combine the contents with anything else, so it can be repurposed by vendors that collect it from the centers.

Go Fund Me campaign has been launched for MyCannaWorks, a cloud-hosted, web-based, mobile app designed to collect data on individual patient cannabis use, provide feedback to patients on quality of life parameters and establish a network between patients, doctors and providers. The app, which will serve as a portal to connect patients, medical practitioners and caregivers, will enable timely communication and feedback on medical cannabis and optimization of products and dosage in specific medical conditions. “One of the greatest barriers to the use of medical cannabis is the lack of rigorous clinical studies to define treatment parameters for cannabinoids in different medical conditions,” says MyCannaWorks app creator Bert Telles, president of Allegiance Wellness Center, who has been working with medical cannabis patients for over six years. “Our goal is to compile data directly from medical cannabis patients on their usage and outcomes related to their medical condition. While this format is not as rigorous as a clinical trial funded by the National Institutes of Health, it will capture valuable and vetted information on the use of MC in different diseases and the information collected will be analyzed to provide an evidence-based framework for the use of MC in medicine.” The information collected from MyCannaWorks will be compiled to share with patients, practitioners, caretakers, support groups and the general public. For more information, visit GoFundMe. com/mycannaworks-app or call Bert Telles at 858-414-4271.
