Holistic Physical Therapy Ian L. Rubinstein, M.P.T., M.R., owner of Eclectic Physical Therapy™, has over 20 years experience helping thousands of patients with their physical discomforts. He has developed a unique combination of therapies, combining manual soft tissue release techniques with traditional physical therapy. This not-so-typical intervention has proven key to addressing his patients’ many states of “dis— ease”. Ian’s specialties include, but are not limited to: Neck/ Back Pain, Headaches/Migraines, Bulging/Herniated Discs, Pinched Nerves, Tendonitis/ Bursitis, TMJ Dysfunctions, Fibromyalgia. Experience has taught Ian that under physical duress, restrictions develop that cause an individual’s body tissues to feel restricted, burdened, and/or “dis—eased”. Remove the core restrictions and the body

returns to its relaxed, balanced, healthy state. He has developed a unique therapy that focuses on listening to the body, identifying the trouble areas, and intuitively responding to its needs. Unlike traditional chiropractic and physical therapy methods which emphasize routine manipulation of the symptomatic body part, Ian utilizes a distinctive approach by incorporating techniques like Reiki, Craniosacral Therapy, Visceral Manipulation and other forms of soft tissue release. This is what he refers to as “Light Touch” therapy. This diverse blend provides a patient with a therapy flexible enough to address many causes of the symptoms.

“ Listen to the body, address its core issues, and let it perform the corrective releases it already knows how to do.”

… the therapy is covered by insurance.

Since I last wrote to you, I had my first surgery tucked away with the strongest hope that my cancer was gone. Not true, I needed yet another surgery to remove the ductal carcinoma in situ. So, I checked that off, hoping once again that it was gone. Now, I am told the cancer didn’t spread, but it was like sprinkles and chocolate chips on an ice cream cone – very hard to remove with two lumpectomies. I was told that, “in order to be sure we remove all traces of the cancer a double mastectomy would be most advisable to undergo.” The memories come flooding back – how they looked in my first bikini, and in my T shirt in a wet T-shirt contest in Key West shared with my college friends (shhh, don't tell my Mom). And not to mention how perfect they were when I met my husband at a party as I showed them off in low-cut shirt (of course he noticed).

Everyone has a morning routine . . . but mine has recently changed. 1. First things first, I battle with my alarm (i.e. hit snooze 30 times). 2. Bitzy my cat then wakes me up, and I stumble to the kitchen to feed her and let her out. 3. We both get back into bed and snuggle for a bit. 4. I turn on morning cartoons (I’m not kidding). 5. I head to the kitchen and put a spoonful of coconut oil in my mouth. 6. I get back in bed, set a timer for 20 minutes, and start checking my email. You may be wondering about number 5. Why am I putting a spoonful of coconut oil in my mouth and then getting back, while setting a timer?

Oil Pulling

Oil pulling has been around for years, which makes me mad, as I’ve only just found out about it. It’s an ancient Ayurvedic technique that basically involves swishing oil in your mouth for 20 minutes (no more, no less) to help improve your oral and overall health. The idea behind it is pretty simple – the oil is sticky, and when you

swish it around in your mouth, bacteria gets stuck in the oil and dissolves. It’s easy to do. You can use organic coconut oil or any other vegetablebased oil (sesame, sunflower or olive). I prefer coconut because it also has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and antiinflammatory properties. Put anywhere from a teaspoon to a tablespoon, depending on what you can handle, in your mouth and swish it around for 20 minutes.

softens the stool and is healing/soothing to the GI tract. Althea officinalis (marshmallow) Supplementing with Althea helps soften the stool, addressing a common problem in constipation. Additionally, the plant contains mucilage polysaccharides, similar to slippery elm, which are healing/soothing to the GI tract. Buffered ascorbic acid (vitamin C) - Higher doses of the essentially nontoxic vitamin C soften the stool and increase the frequency of bowel movements. Interestingly, children who suffer from chronic childhood constipation have higher levels of oxidative stress and lower levels of antioxidants like vitamins C and E. With

its extensive list of colon-supporting nutrients, Progressive Health’s advanced constipation formula can help to re-nourish your body with the natural nutrients it needs to correct irregularities in GI function and health. Probiotics: Lactobacillus acidophilus and bacillus - Probiotics are beneficial bacteria (or flora) that reside in the digestive tract and create a healthy gastrointestinal environment by restoring normal flora. Patients with constipation who were treated using yogurt containing Lactobacillus and rye bread reported that gastrointestinal symptoms resulting from the increase in fiber consumption were relieved.

In my early years of gardening I didn’t know the difference between pH and PMS; I had no idea if my soil was alkaline or acidic. Fortunately most things I planted grew anyway, but I did have trouble with a few plants, and I now suspect that the soil’s pH was the problem. pH stands for “parts hydrogen” and the pH scale measures how acid or alkaline the soil is. The scale ranges from 0 to 14; anything below the neutral point of 7 is acidic, and anything above 7 is alkaline. Most gardens have soils that range between 4.5 and 7.5. In general, most areas of the United States receive regular rainfall, and these regular rains keep soils on the acid side. But locations where rainfall is less prevalent usually have neutral or alkaline soils. Local conditions such as the composition of the bedrock, or the vegetation present may also affect the pH.

Now this is all very interesting, but what does it have to do with our gardens? Well, pH is of concern because it influences how available nutrients are to the plants. For example, phosphorus, calcium, potassium, and magnesium are most available to plants when the soil is in the neutral range. And if the soil is very acidic, the bacteria that make nitrogen available to plants are not as active, so less nitrogen is there for the plants’ use. In extremely alkaline soil,

phosphorus, iron and trace elements are unavailable for plant uptake. So if the pH of the soil is off, there may be adequate nutrients in your soil, or you may be fertilizing, but your plants can’t absorb what is there. The majority of garden plants (especially annuals, perennials, and most vegetables) grow best in soil that is near neutral, from 6.5 to 7.0. Other plants (azaleas and blueberries for example) need acidic soils, and some, such as delphiniums, prefer soil which is more alkaline. If the pH of your soil is wrong for the plants you are growing, there are things you can do to change it. The addition of lime or wood-ashes will bring the pH of acid soils up closer to neutral, and digging sulfur or peat moss into the garden will bring the pH down if it is too high. But don’t treat your soil with anything before you know what the pH is. What has been put on or in your soil in the past may be affecting the pH today. Even the water that is sprinkled on your lawns and flowerbeds might be changing the pH, so it is important that gardeners not assume that their soil is either acidic or alkaline. Put a small trowel full of dirt into a baggie, and have it tested by a lab or your local Cooperative Extension, and be sure to mention what you have growing in the soil that is being analyzed. They will tell you what the pH of that soil is, and if you need to alter it to suit what is growing in that area.

Five Simple Tools to Unearth Awareness and Your Authentic Self by Laura Tryon Jennings

Is there something inside you which doesn’t feel at peace, but you can’t exactly put your finger on it? Do you feel you are meant to be on a different journey? Do you miss the joyful, imaginative, impassioned energy for selfexpression you had as a child? Do you get caught up in all the “I should” tasks? Sometimes our daily responsibilities, obligations, and the mundane details

of keeping all the trains in life running on time can cloud our dreams and desires and block awareness of our true feelings. Expressive Arts is a pathway to discover who you are meant to be

at a core level, what you actually want in your life, how you want to feel, how to get it, and how to be mindful as you go about your day. Expressive Arts is a holistic therapeutic process using the arts as its basis for discovery and change and simple exercises to express emotions and feelings through an inner dialogue of the heart (right side of brain) and mind (left side of brain). Here are five simple tools for getting in touch with awareness and your authentic self. 1. Meditating: Set aside 3 minutes of quiet meditation every morning. Set an intention. Decide what you need or how you want to feel for the day, e.g. clarity, focus, balance, love, compassion, understanding, etc. First minute: Get present, calm, and body-centered in a comfortable chair. Second minute: Take cleansing breaths in, imagining yourself going up toward the sky or the warmth of the sun, and then take long breaths out. Imagine being rooted down in the earth. Third minute: Breathe in what you want for that day (your intention).

Healthy Living Magazine SPRING/SUMMER 2014 

Let the intention come in through the crown of your head and out through your feet, and repeat. 2. Journaling: Write all your wants, desires, dreams for your life and how you want to feel about them. This gives you clarity. If you don't know what you want, you can’t achieve those desires. 3. Image making: Get a piece of paper and a medium which has several colors to choose from, such as markers, colored pencils, crayons, pastels, or paint. Visualize yourself making the choice to fulfill one of your dreams. Draw an image expressing how it would feel to make the choice. This is not meant to be art (see examples). 4. Writing: View your image. If it could speak to you, what would it be saying to you? Write everything down in a stream-ofconsciousness way. 5. Listening: Really listen to your sounds in your surroundings. It’s especially nice to do this in nature. What do you hear (e.g. leaves being rustled by a breeze, bird chirping, a shower running, rumbling of sheets as you move in bed, etc.)? Notice what sounds give you peace. Listen for them to make you feel calm.

mind” by Candace Pert. By establishing health and a positive vibratory nature, we have the outward expression that we want in our lives, and energy psychology paves the way.

Energy psychology addresses the relationship of energy systems to emotion, cognition, behavior and health. These systems include the electrical activity of the nervous system and heart, meridians, biophotons, biofields, etc. We discussed this technique with Fern Ross Israel, MA, LMHC, of Heart Centered Healing, to discover the ways in which our brain and body operate electromagnetically and how we can tap into this process. According to Israel, the roots of energy psychology are within the teachings of traditional Chinese medicine. Fourteen meridians, or energy pathways, flow throughout the body as an energy circuit.

Gary Craig, the developer of EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) explained, “The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body's energy system. Energy psychology works on these imbalances and leaves a person free from physical pain, trauma, anxiety etc.” This reminds me of the quote, “Our body is an outward expression of our

There are many applications or different protocols within the larger umbrella of energy psychology. Whether one taps or holds various acupuncture points, while putting the attention on different aspects of a problem or disturbance, it might very well turn out to be a healing expression.

The Rewards of Hula Hooping by Tifany Hawco

Do you remember when physical fitness was all about play? Jump rope, kick the can, and hop scotch were great ways to get your daily doses of fun and activity. And who can forget the hula hoop? You are never too old to hula hoop. It is still a fun way to get exercise, even for adults. Hula hooping expert Tiffany Hawco, from Tiffany Hoops, explained how this common, colorful, plastic toy can be used as a bona fide piece of workout equipment. “When the hula hoop was introduced in 1958 it was a child’s toy,” Hawco said. “Hooping now continues as an enduring exercise movement trend. If you want to start ‘hooping,’ it’s important to find a hoop that fits you properly. To do this, stand the hula hoop in front of you; it should reach the center of your abdomen. If you have never used a hula hoop before, it may feel awkward when you begin using it, and you may even drop it. Practice, you will increase your spatial awareness and quicken your reflexes.If you want to strengthen your core, using a hoop is a good way to work your abdominal muscles, and waist. According to Weight Watchers, hooping for 20 minutes burns 200 calories, and one hour of hula hooping burns up to 600 calories. Using the hula hoop as part of your exercise regimen will empower you to increase your aerobic stamina in a new way. “Hooping has brought me the gift of empowerment, joy, energy and even sexiness. Whether you simply desire to explore this new world of dance, get a good workout, or learn new and amazing acrobatic skills, I'm positive hooping will inspire you to keep on moving and be more in touch with your body.”

Tiffany Hawco has been hooping and making hula hoops since 2012. She specializes in creating custom hoops, classes, birthday parties and special performances.

Dance as Medicine by Donna Newman-Bluestein

I have been musing on the meaning of the arts and beauty in my life. Why are they so important? What dance and the arts bring to health and well-being is the concept of wholeness. The arts are not about the individual elements so much as how they are put together. As you may know, the source for both the words “heal” and “well” come from a Middle English word meaning “whole.” Both the arts and health have to do more with the relationship between the parts and the whole than any particular elements. Pearl Primus, a famous dancer, choreographer and anthropologist, wrote, “Dance is my medicine. It is the scream which eases for a while the terrible frustration common to all human beings who, because of race, creed or color, are ‘invisible’. . . I dance

not to entertain, but to help people better understand each other.” Donna NewmanBluestein, who offers psychotherapy through movement and dance, led a group using an Octoband a product for stimulating movement and exercise in children and the elderly, where, despite varying levels of dementia, everyone participated, contributed, and moved past isolation as they danced and moved rhythmically together, offering gestures, memories, and moments of connection. By using the Octaband individually with this young woman after major back surgery, she said "The colorful Octaband coupled with dance/ movement therapy made her day."

The Octaband® is a fun, interactive tool which promotes individuality and group cohesion through movement for people of all ages and abilities. The stretchy material, bright colors, and innovative design stimulate selfexpression, spontaneity, and awareness of others.

Your Aura Energy Field

by Heather Keay

What exactly is an aura? People have many different definitions. The easiest way to understand it is this: the aura is a tangible energy field surrounding the physical body. With practice, anyone has the ability to see aura around themselves, other people, and objects. Energy surrounds everything, so in time one is able to see aura around everything. Your aura has seven layers 1) Physical auric body 2) Etheric auric body 3) Vital auric body 4) Astral (emotional) auric body 5) Lower mental auric body 6) Higher mental auric body 7) Spiritual (intuitive) auric body Aura is a white or colored light that emanates from people and objects. These auras can be read and interpreted to mean various things. With people, auras are most commonly seen around the head and shoulders. Human auras change due to internal and external stimuli. Many things

affect a person’s aura including food, medication, and sleep patterns. It is very important to keep your aura clear. Your aura can pick up negative energy throughout your day and can even pick up negative energy from other people. When you feel your energy is being drained or you suddenly become tired, it may be because your energy is being pulled. This can happen after you have finished talking to someone in person or over the phone. You may feel exhausted following your conversation. Did you know your aura has seven layers. (see Chart Next Page) 1) Physical auric body - physical sensations, such as simple physical comfort, pleasure, and health. 2) Etheric auric body - emotions with respect to self; self-acceptance and self-love. 3) Vital auric body - rational mind; to understand the situation in a clear, linear, and rational way. 4) Astral (emotional) auric body - relations with others; loving interaction with friends and family.

6) Higher mental auric body - divine love and spiritual ecstasy. 7) Spiritual (intuitive) auric body - divine mind and serenity; to be connected to divine mind and to understand the greater universal pattern. The chart on next page indicates what each color means.

Now, Clearing your aura Take a shower - Taking a shower is the easiest way to clear your aura. As the water flows over every inch of your body imagine all your troubles and stress flowing away from your mind along with the water. I like to imagine the water is like molasses and as it moves down slowly removes all leftover residue from the day.

Saltwater soak - Treat yourself by soaking in a steaming tub of water with epsom salts or sea salt. This is by far my favorite way to clear my aura. A lavender sea salt bath cleanses and calms body and spirit. I sometimes will place an amethyst crystal in the tub on the days I feel I really need extra clearing. If you live near the ocean even better - jump right in it. Set the intention to have your aura cleared and it will be. Comb your aura - Using your fingers as a comb, comb through the space surrounding your body starting at your head and continuing downward to your toes. I usually do this three times. Smudge your aura - Smudge the area surrounding your body with the smoke from sage, lavender, palo santo, or other smudging herbs.

It is Not Just Your Hair

It’s Your Health

Treat your Hair Like Your Face and Your Body

How Harmful is Beauty? Have you ever seen that long list of ingredients on the back of a cosmetics bottle? Some of these products probably aren't as safe as you'd hope they are. Since the FDA does little to regulate ingredient safety, it has authorized the cosmetics industry to police itself through its Cosmetics Ingredient Review panel. In its more than 30-year history, the industry panel has declared only 11 ingredients or chemical groups to be unsafe (CIR 2012). Its recommendations on restricting ingredients are not binding on companies (FDA 2012). Myth – The government prohibits the use of all dangerous chemicals in personal care products, and companies wouldn’t risk using them. Fact – With the exception of color additives and a few prohibited substances, cosmetics companies may use any ingredient or raw material in their products without government review or approval (FDA 2005). Whereas the European Union has

banned more than 1,000 ingredients from use in cosmetics, the FDA has only prohibited the following (FDA 2000a): • Bithionol • Chlorofluorocarbon propellants Chloroform • Halogenated salicylanilides (di-, tri-, metabromsalan and tetrachlorosalicylanilide) • Methylene chloride • Vinyl chloride • Zirconium-containing complexes • Prohibited cattle materials (including material from non-ambulatory cattle, material from cattle not inspected and passed and mechanically separated beef).

Food Babe’s Holistic Tips by Vani (aka Food Babe)

Your skin is your largest organ! What you put on your hair, is absorbed into your blood through your scalp and face. Nurture it, be kind to it and, most importantly, LOVE it! Eat foods that have a rich source of Omega 3 fatty acids and all the essential amino acids like chia seeds, hemp seeds and flax seeds. Your hair is made up of protein; getting all the essential amino acids will help it get stronger and grow more lustrous. Silica found in cucumbers, cabbage, and celery are great to improve elasticity of hair, preventing split ends! Joy McCarthy, a registered holistic nutritionist, recommends eating lots of dark, leafy greens, like kale, that provide vitamin A, vitamin C and iron, which are critical for healthy, strong, and shiny hair. She also recommends eating lots of legumes as well. Brittle hair is often caused by a deficiency in biotin, which is found in beans. Choose hair care products fragranced with natural smells from essential oils, herbs, fruits and vegetables. Sleep on a 100% silk pillowcase – not only will this help you prevent bed head – it will help you develop fewer wrinkles on your face. continued on next page . . .

Vani’s blog,, is now well-known worldwide for its insightful and informative exposés on conventional American foods, as well as helpful tips in eating a wholesome, organic diet. Vani also published a series called “Food Babe Investigates,” where she digs deeply into the products sold by major food companies.

With so many home furnishing makers claiming their product are green, organic and healthy for the environment, how do you spot the real deal?

Four Tricks To Spot Truly Eco-Friendly Furniture

Try these four tips from Dimitrios Klonis, president of Urban Green a Brooklyn, N.Y. manufacturer of ecofriendly furniture:

4. Consider the finish. Ask about the type of VOC (volatile organic compounds) finish used. LowVOCs release less chemicals into the air through evaporation. It’s a red flag when furniture has a strong odor. This probably means high levels of VOCs were used.

1. Look for certification. An organization like the Forest Stewardship Council© (FSC) or Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI). Certification tells you the wood used was legally harvested from responsibly managed forests.

2. Look for furniture made close to home. Fuel used to transport furnishings adds to greenhouse gas emissions. 

3. Options other than solid wood can be eco-friendly. MDF (medium-density fiberboard) can be green when it’s FSC-certified.  Wood veneers over formaldehyde-free plywood cores with soy-based adhesive can also be an eco-friendly choice.

Have you tried searching for the hair care products you use on EWG’s cosmetic database at www.ewg. org? I did and was saddened to learn so many popular hair care brands were rated 8-10! Try to pick hair care products that are all below a rating of 3 on the EWG cosmetic database. Check all your hair care products individually for safety. Don’t assume if you use a certain brand, your product is safe. Many companies have products across the spectrum from very safe and natural to horribly deadly. Stop relying on fancy marketing and celebrities to choose brands. Vote with your dollars! Stop supporting companies that are harming the environment, your family and, most importantly, your own body with crazy chemicals! What works for one person, may not work for another. There are so many great natural products available now; you WILL find some that suit you. It might take you some time navigating through the “old” world of natural beauty! God knows, I’ve been through several trials and errors.

Inner Resiliency

Tools to Slay The Inner Bully

by Judy Giovangelo

The bully is all about power and control. Each and every one of us has experienced both ends of this coin. As children we tease, bully, power over our friends, our pets and especially our siblings to gain dominion over the outside world. Sometimes we are the victim of bullying, sometimes we are the bully. As adults we bully and power over our children to get them to comply to our ideas of who they should and should not be. In the work place we bully our co-worker to gain power and our bosses over power us to maintain control of their position. The bully is alive and well in our society. So how can we slay this dragon? Think of someone you know who is very happy, healthy, and confident in who they are. They are not a bully to anyone, they do not attract bullies into their lives, they exude a very high self esteem and believe in their greatest potential. They tend to live in their heart, more than their head, and they are kind not only to themselves, but those around them. They are often leaders and stand alone. They are completely at ease within themselves whether surrounded by many or alone. They succeed at whatever they set out to do. In order to teach this to our children, we must first become it ourselves. Be the change that you want to see in the world around you. When we R.E.S.P.E.C.T. and honor ourselves the world around us will meet us where we are. This is the law of attraction.

R – Responsibility – Take responsibility for your thoughts, words, feelings and actions and recognize that you are the creator of your own experience. E – Effort – Make the effort to be the change you want to see in the world. Rather than focusing on the problem, be the solution. S – Self Love & Acceptance – What you focus on is what you create. Focus on your gifts and accept your weaknesses. You are perfect, just the way you are. P – Patience & Considerate Action – Treat others the way you want to be treated. Like attracts like. E – Expression – Use positive words and language to empower yourself and those around you. Practice positive affirmations daily and speak highly of others. C - Cooperation – Be a team player. Be willing to act in service for the greater good of the whole. It takes a village to raise a child. T – Thankfulness – Remember, what you focus upon is what you create. When you focus on what you have, you create and attract more of what you want. Write down five things you are grateful for everyday. Teach these seven laws of attraction to your children. Power comes from within. When we are empowered from the inside, the outside world will meet you there. With practice, the bully will simply fall away. Judy Giovangelo founded Ben Speaks in 2009 following the loss of her teenage son Benjamin to suicide aftering bullying. Her organization is "Saving Lives" through Empowerment. Offering inspiration and a power-filled toolbox to parents, teachers and youth.

What The Law Says

about who can attend an IEP meeting? “Chosen by the discretion of the parent or the local educational agency, other individuals who have knowledge or special expertise about the child.”

What The Law Means The school or parents may bring other people to the IEP meeting. The law says these people must have “knowledge or expertise”. The one doing the inviting makes the decision about this person’s “knowledge or expertise”. The school must consider information from others whom the parent brings.

Cancer, Exercise and Recovery

by Laury True Hale

The experience of having cancer, from diagnosis to treatment and recovery, is often described as a journey. At some point, most patients will be encouraged by their medical team to return to activities that they enjoyed before diagnosis. This can be welcome news for some survivors and a puzzling mess for others. Many questions can arise. What’s safe? How much can you do, and how often? Most importantly, will it make a difference? And where are the sign posts for this part of the journey? We asked Laury True Hale, Cancer Exercise Specialist to give our readers some important points to consider. Here’s what she had to say: Cancer Exercise Specialists can help patients and caregivers navigate the next steps to recovery. Some symptoms you may experience after treatment and/or surgery are fatigue, distress, decreased mobility, neuropathy, and joint pain from medications. Exercise can help address these symptoms.

It’s important to set the stage for realistic goals and appropriate exercise options. Whether you are returning to exercise or new to exercise, recognize that your body is different from everyone else’s. Try stretching or yoga initially to reconnect. Physical therapy, lymphatic drainage massage and meditation can deepen your awareness and help prevent injuries from too much, too soon. Progressive exercise plans for recovery will include cardiovascular and resistance training. Walking outdoors or taking an indoor cycling class are two options. Start slowly and build up your time and endurance. Targeting a charity walk or ride as a goal can give you both motivation and inspiration. Resistance or strength training can be added after mobility and stability have been addressed. Stretch, then strengthen, keeping range of motion along with muscle building. Use resistance bands, medicine balls, suspension training systems (like TRX) that give the most options for time

and energy invested. Take a class for guidance or use a cancer-specific DVD. Begin core and balance training with floor exercises such as the plank or simple standing-on-one-leg challenges. Low-impact practices such as Barre and Pilates can teach you to switch on trunk and glute muscles in particular, sparing the lower back, while strengthening the links needed for good posture. Surgery can often leave you with muscle imbalances; building muscle is important, but knowing how to connect strength with movement is key. By building a community of people who are in a similar situation, the journey to healing takes on new meaning for everyone involved. You’re not alone. Find a support group or exercise program to help you build your confidence along the way. Laury True Hale is a personal trainer (NASM) and Cancer Exercise Specialist at Fitness Unlimited in Milton. She is happy to answer questions via email about general concerns for survivors who want to add exercise to their recovery. She can be reached at

Do you have preconceived notions and past experiences of difficulties with loved ones? There is the possibility of not communicating love effectively because our love languages are different. We can avoid potential difficulties by effectively communicating our love and caring as described in the book, “The Five Love Languages,” by Dr. Gary Chapman. Gary states that we communicate love in five ways: 1 Quality Time 2 Words of Affirmation 3 Gifts 4 Acts of Service 5 Physical Touch Suppose that, within a couple,  person A feels loved when receiving Quality Time from person B. Person B feels loved when receiving Words of Affirmation or Gifts from person A.

The challenge is that we communicate with others in the way we receive love. So person A gives Quality Time to B, and person B gives Words of Affirmation or Gifts to A. And each does not fully feel or appreciate what is being given. A couple who have been together for a long time each feel they completely love the other. On the other hand, they don’t feel completely loved by the other. The reason is that their love languages are not the same and they only communicate their love to the other through their own love language. So how do you figure out how to communicate more in the ways that others feel love? Recall a few times when you have felt love coming from another and remember how they were communicating. Identify which of the five ways have most positive impact on you. • Tell another person how you feel loved.

by Dr. William Kolbe,

Richard P. Feynman, one of the most publicly known scientists in the world, said, “Physics is like sex. Sure, it may give some practical results, but that's not why we do it.” Sex provides pleasure; a means to realize familial and social goals; an emotional outlet for love, commitment, and gratitude; and a boost to selfesteem. Sex usually is considered as being body-centered or appealing to the senses, and person-centered by fostering relationships. However, there is another aspect of sex and its generative capability that holds vast potential in terms of our mental and physical health, but which is woefully neglected in media, educational, and medical circles. What happens in our bodies when we are sexually stimulated? For

starters, let’s look at the sex hormones testosterone and estrogen. Sex trumps all other forms of exercise as being the best means to signal our master pituitary gland to dole out ‘work orders’ to enlist our sex glands in the production of sex hormones. These miraculous substances are directly involved in muscular, skeletal, and cardiovascular system integrity, as well as certain cognitive functions, behaviors, and memory. The presence of these hormones is very important for our overall physical and mental health over our lifetimes. Our sex glands also concoct, in addition to the “I highly recommend this book to anyone who is open sex hormones, a to the possibility of unifying spiritual energy with sexual substance linked energy; ultimately empower one’s capacity to give and to endocrine and receive love.” brain health. In males, semen hosts “This author not only has the courage to tackle the a veritable cocktail taboo topic of masturbation but he does this task with of beneficial graciousness and insight. The book is well written, easily substances such as understandable, and brings a completely new perspective vitamins, minerals, to human sexuality.” trace elements, enzymes, amino acids, proteins, “Dr. Kolbe presents a unique amalgam sugars, hormones, of perspectives spanning historical and and cancer-fighting cultural references on masturbation combined with a thorough and agents. This is understandable look at how the human where things body and brain benefit from sexual get interesting. stimulation.” The brain’s cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), responsible The Rejuvenating Power of Masturbation book and DVD for buoyancy and are available in Barnes & Noble, Amazon Kindle, and at brain function, and semen share over a dozen similar


ingredients. Recent scientific research has shown that female sexual fluid also contains many ingredients found in CSF. This brings us back to the notion that sex has generative potentials. One technique that taps into these potentials for men and women, both in solo and paired sex, is a form of orgasm control called “edging an orgasm,” or what Dr. Stephen Chang, author of The Tao of Sexology, calls “superior orgasm.” In Tantric teachings this is called “valley orgasm.” Essentially, one is slowly building up and then controlling the intensity and duration of the levels of arousal close to full-body orgasm without getting to the point of spasm. This technique, practiced periodically, results in a robust supply of key nutrients for brain and nerve vitality, along with promoting balanced endocrine function. Eastern sexuality affirms that, especially as we age, we benefit from including more superior orgasms in our sexual practices. By understanding the inner workings of our bodies, we can choose forms of solo and paired sexual activity that enhance our fitness, vigor, stamina, and longevity. Our sexuality provides stress reduction, endorphin release, a fortified immune system, supple skin, weight loss, lower blood pressure, improved sleep, and reduced risk of heart disease. A knowledgeable approach to our sexuality enables us to cultivate lasting physical and mental benefits as well as avoid adopting conventional ideas about what should be satisfying to us. Dr. Kolbe has dedicated over 30 years of research to linking ancient Taoist and Hindu sexual practices to contemporary medical knowledge. He has a B.S. in Microbiology and an Ed.D. in Leadership in Schooling from the University of Massachusetts, an M.A. in International Studies from Lesley College, and an M.B.A. in Public Management from Boston University. He presently resides in New England with his family.

Examining the Generative Potentials of Sex

Pet Q and A

by Dr. DeMarco and Karen Price


the abdominal wall so it cannot shift or twist.

A:  Sadly, yes. Bloat is a very serious

Can dogs and cats really get sunburn?

A friend of mine had a dog that suddenly died of “bloat.” Is bloat really that common and dangerous?

health risk for many dogs, yet many dog owners know very little about it. Large breed, deep-chested dogs, such as German Shepherds, Great Danes, and Dobermans are particularly at risk. The technical name for bloat is Gastric Dilatation-Volvulus (GDV).  Bloating of the stomach is often related to swallowed air (although food and fluid can also be present).  It usually happens when there's an abnormal accumulation of air, fluid, and/or foam in the stomach (gastric dilatation). Bloat can occur with or without "volvulus" (twisting). As the stomach swells, it may rotate 90° to 360°, twisting between its fixed attachments at the esophagus (food tube) and at the duodenum (the upper intestine). The twisting stomach traps air, food, and water in the stomach.  The bloated stomach obstructs veins in the abdomen, leading to low blood pressure, shock, and damage to internal organs.  The combined effect can quickly kill a dog. Typical symptoms often include some (but not necessarily all) of the following:  unproductive vomiting, drooling, foaming around the mouth, unusual behavior, anxiety, restlessness, hunched-up appearance, and a bloated abdomen that feels tight (like a drum). Unfortunately, from the onset of the first symptoms you have very little time (sometimes minutes, sometimes hours) to get immediate medical attention for your dog. Because the causes of bloat are not always clear, prevention can be difficult. To minimize the risk to your dog you should do the following: avoid stress, do not elevate the dog bowl, avoid exercise right after a meal, do not allow rapid eating or drinking, and feed a good quality food. One way to virtually eliminate the risk of bloat is to have the surgical procedure called canine gastropexy done. In this procedure, the stomach is attached to the right side of



A:  Yes!

Just like humans, other lightskinned mammals can become sunburned, especially in areas where the coat is thin, on the underbelly, and after a “summer cut” from the groomer.  To avoid sunburn in pets, keep them in shade and out of direct sunlight between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. To date, only one sun protection product for pets has FDA approval, and that is Epi-Pet Sun Protector. This is great news for dogs and horses but, unfortunately, it should not be used on cats.  Products containing titanium dioxide are acceptable for use on ear tips and noses. This ingredient works by physically blocking the sun's harmful rays, but use it sparingly as it, too, can be toxic in larger amounts. This homemade recipe for a cat-safe sunscreen lotion came from Sphynxlair. com. Sphinx cats are almost hairless and have very little fur to protect their skin:



First Aid & CPR 6 Tbs. almond oil 3 Tbs. shea butter Don’t It By Accident! 1 tsp. beeswax 1 tsp. soy lecithin 2 Tbs. aloe vera gel 2 Tbs. rose water 3-5 drops coconut oil (optional, for fragrance). Melt oils, butters and beeswax in a double boiler over low heat, only until melted. Add the soy lethicin, and stir until mixed. Remove from heat. Warm the aloe vera and rose water. While still warm, put the water mix over ice, drizzle in the oil mixture while stirring rapidly with a small whisk. Add coconut oil, if desired. Mix well, and store in a clean, airtight jar.

Healthy Living Magazine SPRING/SUMMER 2014 

Before trying any product all over your cat, test it on one small area to make sure kitty is not sensitive or allergic to any ingredients. If in doubt, or if your pet shows any signs of illness or irritation, contact your veterinarian immediately.

Q: My dog ate my pot! Will he be OK?


With the recent changes in our laws, this question may be posed more often than you would expect. The reality is that many dogs and cats are admitted to the veterinarian hospital every day after ingesting marijuana. According to Dr. Agata DeMarco, DVM, of Kingston Animal Hospital, clinical signs of marijuana exposure include drooling, disorientation, dribbling urine, dilated pupils, staggering, hypersensitivity to stimuli, vomiting, tremors, hypothermia, low blood sugar and abnormal heart rate. An overdose can cause seizures and even death. There is no antidote, so treatment is imperative. Your vet may induce vomiting, use activated charcoal to absorb the toxins and may keep your pet for observation overnight with IV fluids. Dr. DeMarco stresses that preventing access to marijuana and other potential toxins is the best way to avoid accidental poisoning and a lengthy hospitalization. In case of suspected exposure, veterinarians or pet owners may seek assistance by calling The Pet Poison Helpline at (800) 213-6680, ($35/case) or ASPCA’s Animal Poison Control Center at (888) 426-4435, ($60/case). Service is available 24/7 and the line is staffed by experts in the field of veterinary toxicology. Karen Price is a lifelong animal lover and pet owner who earned a BS in Animal Science from U-Mass, Amherst, and has over 25 years of experience in the pet care industry.  She currently owns and operates South Paws Doggie Daycare, in Pembroke. She is also an instructor with Fetch First Aid and CPR for Pets.

Balancing the Chakra System of Your Pet


by Nan Martin

Raindrop Technique

Raindrop technique is a powerful technique using essential oils that was developed by D. Gary Young in the 1980s. It combines several holistic modalities to bring balance and alignment to the body in a noninvasive manner. It also stimulates all the body systems on a physical and emotionally level.

What is Raindrop Technique? This technique involves applying therapeutic grade essential oils to the spine, neck and feet. The session lasts about an hour however the benefits may last up to a week or more. Gary found that combining several holistic techniques, described below, created a synergistic effect for the body. The three modalities that combine to form Raindrop Technique are: Aromatherapy – Raindrop technique uses seven single essential oils, two blends and one essential oil massage blend during the session. It is congruent with the French application of aromatherapy where essential oils are applied NEAT (undiluted) to the body.

It is thought that the oils interact with a person's electric field before even penetrating the skin of the back. Thereby, enhancing the electromagnetic properties of the oils as well. Amazing! Nan is a Licensed Spiritual Healer and Certified Raindrop Technique Specialist.

• Vita

Flex Technique – Vita Flex was brought to the US in the 1920s by Stanley Burroughs. It is an ancient Tibetan healing methodology meaning "vitality through the reflexes". Its theory is based on the fact that slight pressure applied to the body creates an electric charge that is therapeutic to the body. This is known as piezoelectric.

• Feather

Stroking - This is similar to a massage term technique called effleurage. But this technique was actually termed by the Native American Indians. How does Raindrop get its Name? Essential oils are actually dropped from about 6 inches above your spine, simulating rain drops! It feels like a rain drop gently striking your spine, and it is very relaxing and comforting.
