Pirate Joe Mamet Says . . . Take Charge of your Health Today! Call One of Our Advertisers to Get You Started!

As a child I lived with my extended family, 14 in all. From a very young age I saw how medication was often the focal point of the conversation. Our house was riddled with illness; bi-polar disorder, diabetes, epilepsy, emphysema, learning disabilities, and alcoholism. My maternal grandmother was running the show at the time. I saw her on the phone with doctors in the day and praying on her knees at night that a particular medication would help her loved one. More often than not, it didn’t work - Sadly for my grandmother, it was a crazy roller coaster ride of managing prescription medications that she relied on until her death at age 73. From a very young age, I pledged to myself that I would NEVER end up depending on the pill bottle. I made a conscious shift towards a lifestyle of preventing illness, rather than the supposed quick fix approach of taking a pill. In 2006, the death of 4 year old Rebecca Riley, still haunts me till this day. She was prescribed Depakote, Seroquel, and Clonidine after being diagnosed as having Bipolar Disorder since she was 2 years old! What an atrocity! A “quick fix” for a two year old who is now dead? Yes, medication absolutely has it’s place . . . but I urge you to dig deep within yourself, use Healthy Living Magazine as a resource to help you find a preventative approach to living well. Did you know the #1 cause of death in the United States is Heart Disease at an astounding 595,444 deaths in 2010? It is also the most preventable and reversible illness if we just eat healthy food! Well, it has been 10 years since the start of HL Magazine. It is your personal stories of transformation over this past decade that humbly drives and inspires me to assist you in your personal and collective journeys. Jim Rohn author, urges us to “Take care of your body. It’s the ONLY place you have to live.” Be well, . . . I second that!

daylight offer the best time to lace up the sneakers to begin a walking or jogging regime. A common mistake many new joggers or runners make is going out too fast, as if in an all-out sprint. Running at any speed greater than the body is trained for will turn aerobic exercise into anaerobic exercise, which means without oxygen (or breath), and will tire the runner soon into the run.

Wanna Stay Fit? Then Pound the Pavement! by Gail Martin, LMT, CYT

by Gail Martin

Once you’re trained to walk, jog, or run 4-8 laps on a regular basis, you’ll be ready to hit the streets for a mile or two!

Tips to get you started: • Check with your doctor to make sure any new exercise is appropriate for you. • Go to a local running store for a gait analysis and proper footwear, and apparel.

• Begin hydrated and bring along extra water to quench thirst and re-hydrate. • Bring a towel and an outer layer of clothing to keep you from getting cold after cooling down. • Make sure food eaten earlier is digested, but don’t start hungry. Your blood sugar may drop too low and zap your energy. Some juice, sports drink, or sports bar may help you get through a workout.

Heated Vinyasa Yoga is an amazing way to build strength and flexibility while shedding pounds. People still believe that the only style of yoga is for stretching and relaxing. The practice of Vinyasa yoga, especially practiced in the heat, not only gives you a blissful feeling of peace of mind and great for detox, but also can be an exhilarating cardio and challenging/ healthy workout.

What Type of Yoga

do you bring to the mat?

With many different types of yoga being practiced today, it may be difficult for you to figure out which style benefits your mind and body the most. It’s important for you to find out which type of yoga meets your needs, so here’s a quick explanation of five of the most common yoga styles practiced everywhere. Hatha Hatha originated in India in the 15th century. This type of yoga is slow-paced, gentle, and focused on breathing and meditation. • Purpose: To introduce beginners to yoga with basic poses and relaxation techniques • Benefits: Relieves stress, provides physical exercise, and improves breathing • Good for: Beginners and people wanting to learn the basics of yoga

Vinyasa Much like Hatha, Vinyasa covers basic poses and breath-synchronized movement. This variety of Hatha yoga emphasizes on the Sun Salutation, a series of 12 poses where movement is matched to the breath. • Purpose: To link the breath with movement and to build lean muscle mass throughout the body • Benefits: Helps improve strength and flexibility, tones the abdominal muscles, and reduces the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, and type 2 diabetes • Good for: Beginners and advanced yogis alike seeking to strengthen their bodies

Ashtanga Ashtanga yoga metaphorically focuses on eight limbs. Considered a form of power yoga, Ashtanga is fast-paced and intense with lunges and push-ups. • Purpose: To help improve one’s spiritual self • Benefits: Relieves stress, improves coordination, and helps with weight loss • Good for: Fit people looking to maintain strength and stamina, and those who want to get in touch with their spiritual side Iyengar Iyengar covers all eight aspects of Ashtanga yoga and focuses on bodily alignment. Different props like straps, blankets, and blocks are used to assist in strengthening the body. Standing poses are emphasized, and are often held for long periods of time. • Purpose: To strengthen and bring the body into alignment • Benefits: Helps improve balance, speeds up recovery from an injury, and builds up body strength • Good for: Beginners who want to learn the correct alignments in each pose and those with injuries, balance

Unveiling the Vegan Lifestyle

by Koya Webb

Dietary veganism—the practice of abstaining from eating animal products— is a lifestyle rife with mystery, myths and misconceptions, and is often erroneously regarded as a dietary regime for extremists. In fact, amid copious health and wellness benefits, the vegan diet is far more mainstream today. This is exemplified by the number of vegan restaurants, and vegan dishes at traditional restaurants, increasing exponentially as well as the high profile personalities that have adopted a vegan diet. Perhaps the vegan diet officially “arrived” when Oprah Winfrey went on a vegan diet for 21 days in 2008, and in 2011 asked her 378 production staff to do the same for one week, as well reported*. Reports also note that Former U.S. president Bill Clinton adopted a vegan diet in 2010 after cardiac surgery, while his daughter Chelsea was already a vegan.  Holistic wellness authority Koya Webb, author of "Koya's Kuisine: "Foods You Love That Love You Back!" offers these “vegan revelations” to

You are eating my flesh! What’s happening with yours?

provide fundamental key facts and clarify misconceptions about the vegan diet and lifestyle*: 1. Vegan food is flavorful! Most people think a vegan diet means tasteless food and poorly-disguised fake meat. While in the past this may have been true, vegan recipes have evolved and today there is a wealth of vegan fare bursting with flavor, from barbeque classics and chili to lasagna and other Italian favorites that are prepared with a heightened health factor since fresh vegetables, fruits nuts and seeds are often key ingredients.  Spices, herbs, sauces, fresh ingredients and inspired culinary vision have made the modern vegan diet quite tasty! 2. It’s a fruit feast. Those trying to reduce dietary sugar are reluctant to eat a lot of fruit, but the vegan diet allows for as much fruit as you desire. If you minimize or eliminate the consumption of complex carbohydrates like bread, rice and pasta, which all break down to sugar, you can add more fruit to your diet—also beneficial since fruit also contains fiber and enzymes that help you maintain and regular functioning system, while the starchy carb counterparts can clog you up and slow your metabolism. 3. Meaty matters. It’s been shown that releasing meat from your diet—as vegans do—can protect you from many degenerative diseases. Meat quality remains an issue in the marketplace, while issues of toxicity, contamination and excessive hormones and chemicals abound. Even if you happen to eat the best quality meat products when dining at home, fast food and other restaurants are generally not as discriminating.

4. Eco-friendly epicure. The vegan lifestyle causes less environmental damage and consumes fewer resources. Organizations such as PETA point out that animal agriculture is linked to climate change, water pollution, land degradation,

Healthy Living Magazine


a decline in biodiversity, and that a commercially available animal-based diet uses more land, water, and energy than a strictly vegetarian one, as cited on Wikipedia. With this in mind, a striking report out of the University of Chicago found that switching from the standard American diet to a plant-based one reduces more greenhouse emissions per person per year over switching from standard sedan like a Toyota Camry to a hybrid Toyota Prius, proving that what you choose to eat could do more to offset greenhouse gas emissions than what you choose to drive. So, if you want to reduce your carbon footprint go vegan . . . even for just 10 days. 5. Go ahead and indulge!  The vegan lifestyle is not about deprivation. You can still enjoy favorite treats like ice cream, cheesecake, and many other desserts. Of course, as with any wellness regime, those with a sweet tooth must still heed the calorie and fat consumption. 6.  Body benefits abound. The vegan diet tends to be higher in dietary fiber, magnesium, folic acid, vitamin C, vitamin E, iron, and phytochemicals, and lower in calories, saturated fat, and cholesterol. Eating vegan has proven to control allergies, PMS, and depression. This is helped, in part, by avoiding the hormones, antibiotics, and antidepressants among other chemicals found in meat products. The vegan lifestyle also promotes healthier hair, skin and nails since mineral absorption is optimized with an animalfree diet. And, it’s been well-reported that eating more fresh fruits and veggies reduces the risk of breast cancer, colon cancer, heart disease and other deadly conditions.    Koya Webb is an internationally recognized holistic health and wellness expert, author, motivational speaker, and consultant who is helping revolutionize the vegan cuisine and holistic living landscape.  Koya's new book "Koya's Kuisine: "Foods You Love That Love You Back!" help individuals make positive lifestyle changes.ginny Learn more online at

Chemicals Sweeteners disrupt endocrine function, lead to weight

gain, contribute to depression, and destroy brain cells. Not only that, artificial sweeteners are so unnaturally sweet that they compromise the delicate palate in your mouth.

Bring to a boil and cook on medium heat for 5-7 minutes. Add maple syrup, apple and pear and cook 1-2 minutes. Remove from the heat and pour into a casserole dish or bowl. Put into the refrigerator for one or more hours until jelled. Can cut and serve in jello squares, or put into the food processor to make creamy. Serves four.

Cinnamon twig, or Gui Zhi, is a common herb you may have in your kitchen right now – and also a powerhouse of a medicinal herb in Chinese Herbal Medicine. Gui Zhi warms the meridians and disperses cold, so is excellent for achy joint pain that responds well to heat. Because of its warming function, it can be very useful for treating cold-type menstrual cramps (sharp and stabbing cramps that are better with the application of a heating pad). Gui Zhi also has a function of unblocking qi in the chest, so can be used for mild chest pain or a feeling of your heart fluttering in your chest.   Gui Zhi also harmonizes the interior and exterior levels of the body. This means that we use it clinically to treat cold symptoms in someone who has an underlying weakness...for example, an elderly person, a postpartum woman, or someone who suffers from a chronic illness.

Emotional Bank Accounts

by Sue Blaney

Here’s a concept that is powerful in its ability to direct your behavior in ways that enhance your relationship with your teenager. Are you familiar with the concept of the “emotional bank account?” This refers to the amount of trust that is developed between two people. You make a deposit in your daughter’s emotional bank account when you share pleasant time together and when you express thoughtfulness, kindness, courtesy, honesty and sensitivity to her feelings. You make withdrawals from her account by overreacting, treating her with disrespect, ignoring her, betraying her trust. Focusing on making deposits helps you keep your relationship front and center. It helps you keep communication open – which is important if you want to be able to provide guidance and support in a way that your teen will hear it. Make deposits and build up that bank account and you will reap the rewards of a solid relationship. Again – how do you make deposits? It can be the littlest things: biting your tongue when he does something wrong, picking him up from school and offering a quick trip thru McDonalds because you know he’s starving, bringing a cup of

Don’t Spank Your Child by Alice D. Domar, Ph.D.

Like many of my generation, I remember being spanked as a child. What was particularly unfair was that the home of my childhood was an upside down house, in that the living space was on the second floor and my bedroom was on the first floor. So when my naughtiness factor overtaxed my mother’s patience, she would yell, tell me to go to my room, and then swat my behind as I started going down the stairs. There was no way to obey the go-to-the-room command without getting spanked. Sometime between my childhood and the time I became a mom, the attitude about spanking changed. Time-outs weremin, and hitting was way out. I can guess that most of us have slipped a time or two (I can actually only remember spanking one of my kids once and I still feel awful about it. I apologize to her every time the topic comes up but she thinks I am being ridiculous since she was three at the time and has no memory of the event. But I remember it all too well and feel really guilty). But new research supports the notion that spanking is just not an option when it comes to disciplining your child(ren). The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends against spanking, and notes that children who were spanked are more likely to “become adults who are depressed, use alcohol, have more anger, hit their own children, hit their

spouses, and engage in crime and violence”. There is no advantage whatsoever of spanking. And as someone who was trained as a child psychologist, I can tell you that if you want to change a child’s behavior, punishing them for bad behavior is not nearly as effective as is rewarding them for good behavior. So if you see your five-year-old sneaking up on the cookie jar a half hour before dinner, you have two choices. You can either smack them after they take the cookie and hope that this will keep them from doing it the next time (it won’t), or you can tell them that if they carefully climb off the counter without taking the cookie, you will give them two cookies after dinner. Adults tend to spank children when they are on overload. So the next time you are feeling emotionally depleted and one of your kids truly pushes your button, take a deep breathe and walk away. Punch a pillow, go for a run, or sing at the top of your lungs. Do anything but spank. Your child’s body and mind will benefit. Alice D.

Birth Matters A national movement is underway to improve birth in America. At least 40 cities across the country, including Weymouth, MA, participated in “National Rally for Change” this last Labor Day, September 3, 2012, to bring awareness to the alarmingly high rates of medically unnecessary cesarean sections and labor inductions. This campaign, organized by, seeks to educate and empower women with evidence-based information in order to make truly informed choices regarding their maternity care. “We’re not talking about natural birth, we’re just talking about normal physiological birth”, says Dawn Thompson, president of “Every woman should have the right to choose the type of birth she wants, we are just asking for them to be evidence based and fully informed choices.” About a fourth of women in the United States who give birth do so through the surgical procedure commonly known as a C-section, according to the National Institutes of Health. “The chance of having a cesarean delivery is greatly increased for first-time mothers who have labor induction, especially if the cervix is not ready for labor,” according to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.

Health Rhythms

by Monique G. Morimoto

Health Rhythms® is an evidence-based empowerment drumming protocol that has been shown to reduce stress and burnout, improve morale and mood, deepen bonding and creativity and reduce turnover in the work place. Developed by Dr. Barry Bittman and Christine Stevens 15 years ago, a peer-reviewed published study of the Health Rhythms protocol found an increase in immune system response through the measurement of natural killer cells. A soon to be published study found a decrease in activity in the actual genes that produce a stress response, specific to the individual.  Drumming has been a tool for communication and spiritual development in numerous civilizations throughout history. Drums come in many shapes and sizes just like people do. Every drum produces its own unique sound only through the singular individual who exerts him or herself physically, emotionally and spiritually to communicate that sound to the world.

calling of our hearts and souls, to the rhythm of our lives? Finding our rhythm or beat means to get in touch with our inner voice, to discover it’s tone and to experience the patterns of its rhythm. In this realm there is no right or wrong sound or rhythm. It is simply, what it is. The process of exploring, listening, feeling and expressing the qualities of our unique sound and rhythm is liberating. Once we are able to hear our inner voice we can choose to consciously communicate the emotions and sensations we are feeling through the sound and rhythm of the drum. According to Jan Gregory, Adjunct Professor of Liturgy, Worship and Spirituality at Hartford Seminary, “Hand drumming is an ancient art that has been used in many cultures. The

Sound and its rhythm surround us continually from the beating of our hearts and the rhythm of our breathing and voices to the sounds of the wind, rain, birds; to the manmade sounds of machinery, traffic, computers, cell phones, etc. How often do we really stop and listen to the sounds and rhythm around us? How often do we really listen to the sound of our own heartbeat, to the deeper

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” — Albert Einstein While walking down a crowded street in London many years ago, I noticed a window display devoted to the English poet William Blake. There was a quotation on a sign in the window that I read over and over. The words seemed to touch my soul, and I was prompted by an internal

calling to write those words on the back of an envelope. Blake’s 200-yearold words resonated strongly with me. I had a curious knowing that I’d one day be writing about what he’d had to say. Fast-forward some ten years later to the day I began writing this chapter about that most mysterious function of our human lives—our imagination. During the morning before settling in to write, I was searching for some tax records in a desk drawer. Unsought, the

So I share these words with you from my spiritual mentor back in the 18th century: “The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a Green thing that stands in the way. Some see Nature all Ridicule and Deformity. . . . and some scarce see Nature at all. But to the eyes of the Man of Imagination, Nature is Imagination itself.” The greatest gift you were ever given was the gift of your imagination.

Reclaiming Your Divinity with Dr. Wayne Dyer

Divine Love

Within your magical inner realm is the capacity to have all of your wishes fulfilled. Here in your imagination lies the greatest power you will ever know. It is your domain for creating the life that you desire, and the best part of it is that you are the monarch with all of the inherent powers to rule your world as you desire. The essence of this great gift is found within another observation made by William Blake, the intuitive poet who lived at the time of the American Revolution. Writing in The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, he made this wry comment that is the great secret for living a life of creative manifestation: “What is now proved was once only imagin’d.” Allow yourself to contemplate this. As this one line of great wisdom sinks into your consciousness, your imagination will then begin to take over. Look around you. Everything that you can experience with your senses was once in someone’s imagination. This is the great truth that you must continued on page 16 . . .

Blake quote scribbled on the back of an envelope, which had long ago been misplaced, appeared. As I grabbed the ten-year-old envelope, I pondered for a moment how Divine synchronicity is always working, moving the pieces around while our ego believes we are in charge. Here I was, ready to begin writing a chapter on how to use your imagination, and today of all days, these scribbles reappeared after a decade of being “lost.” How could I ignore this synchronicity?

Replenish Your Hair, Skin and Nails by Mark Mincolla, Ph.D.

we experience increasing levels of adrenal gland stress. The more stress we encounter as we age the more our thyroid gland and metabolism suffer. The thyroid gland is our regulator of energy, calorie burning, body temperature, and protein synthesis. Tissue proteins such as skin, nails and hair are constantly reforming, replenishing and reshaping. If our thyroid function is deficient from high stress we tend to lose the protein management efficiency. This may result in hair loss, lack of vibrant hair sheen, slow growing nails and aging skin. Not to worry! There are safe, effective natural, nutritional solutions to restore healthy hair, skin and nails. First off, healthy hair, skin and nails demand a diet rich abundant in lean, protein rich foods such as skinless breast of poultry, fish, beans and legumes. Also, fruits and vegetables contain essential minerals like silicone, sulfur and zinc which support vital protein restructuring of hair, skin and nails. Fats are next in line. Omega 9 fats like olive oil are important sources of vitamin F, the fatty acid that supports hormonal health. High starch foods such as potatoes, sweet potatoes, brown rice, whole grain cereals and breads should be limited to no more than one serving per day, as they are insulin triggering foods that tend to slow down the thyroid metabolism. Sugar, alcohol and caffeine should be avoided altogether as they will only serve to further exhaust the adrenal (stress) glands that started this whole degenerative cycle of trouble for the hair, skin and nails. I also feel it is important to cut down on yeasts and vinegars as these fermented foods upset the floral bacteria and vital B complex vitamin absorption in the large intestines as they drive up carbonic acid, and ammonia levels.

It is Not Just Your Hair

It’s Your Health

Finally, make sure to hydrate with a minimum of 60 oz of pure water per day! For nutritional supplementation, I recommend: Nature’s Plus Ultra Hair 2 tablets with meals Flora Vital Iron 1 tbsp zinc gluconate 50 mg Selenomethionine 200 mcg Kelp 225 mg two tablets with meals Your skin, hair and nails will show signs of turning around within 4-6 weeks!

His conviction reflects a dynamic spirit that challenges us all to take control of our own health, healing, and personal potential.

come to realize for yourself. In order for something to get into this world where things exist and are proved, as Blake says, they must first be placed firmly into your imagination. Without your imagination as the reason for future creations, the process of creativity is halted. You have this great power within you. It is a power that is virtually unlimited, and it has been given to you as your birthright. Before putting this gift to work, it is crucial for you to know that virtually all spiritual teachings have spoken of the power that Blake comments on in that insightful sentence, “What is now proved was once only imagin’d.” In the year that I spent researching and living the Tao for my book Change Your Thoughts—Change Your Life, this truth jumped out at me in the lines of the 40th verse of the Tao Te Ching. “Being is born of nonbeing” was Laotzu’s observation 2,500 years ago. The visible world of being originates in nonbeing. Some 500 years later

Jesus would tell his followers, “It is the Spirit who gives life” (John 6:63). I could go on through all of the great spiritual traditions and offer you quote upon quote that states that it is in the invisible formless realm that the originating spark of life begins. Today, the world of quantum physics confirms that the universe is made of formless (spirit) energy, and that particles (that is, things) do not originate from particles (things). Everything springs from something that is akin to your imagination. You can’t touch, taste, see, hear, or smell it. It has no boundaries. You can’t prove it with mathematical formulas or scientific verification. Yet we all know that it exists. These invisible thoughts that you have—these ideas that continue to percolate within you, these fanciful images that are always with you—are beyond the scope of science to prove or disprove. I love this observation made by Max Planck, the father of quantum

theory: “Science cannot solve the ultimate mystery of nature. And that is because, in the last analysis, we ourselves are part of nature and, therefore, part of the mystery that we are trying to solve.” You simply know that you have an imagination, and that this imagination is the Source of all being. It is up to you to channel and use this magnificent endowment to work in the creation of all that you choose to place in that imagination. Wayne W. Dyer, PH.D., is an internationally renowned author and speaker in the field of self-development. Dr. Wayne Dyer is affectionately called the “father of motivation” by his fans. Despite his childhood spent in orphanages and foster homes, Dr. Dyer has overcome many obstacles to make his dreams come true. Today he spends much of his time showing others how to do the same.

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.

Anxiety in Pets by Dr. Shawn Messonnier, DVM

Remedy is the best known essence for anxiety and produces a calming in many nervous pets. It is composed of the essences of 5 flowers: cherry plum, clematis, impatiens, rock rose and Star of Bethlehem. While I prefer combination products instead of simply choosing 1 or 2 herbs for anxiety, it’s important to understand which herbs may be indicated for anxiety-related problems. Valerian is an herb that promotes restfulness, and has not been reported to interact negatively with other medications commonly used in pets. The active ingredients in valerian bind to the same receptors in the brain as the drug diazepam.

While safe in pets, there have been a few reports of liver failure in people with preexisting severe liver disorders. In my practice, I have not seen any problems but would exercise caution in pets with liver problems.

Catnip is a well known herb used for its calming properties. In some cats, it can cause excitement (similar to a mild “high” seen in some people using illegal drugs.) However, when combined with the other herbs in this formula, its sedative and calming properties predominate.

Lucy’s Love Bus Bringing Comfort and Quality of Life to Children with Cancer

In a study published in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapy the Touch Research Institute conducted a study on the effects of massage therapy for Leukemia. Twenty children with leukemia were provided with daily massages by their parents and were compared to a standard treatment control group. Following a month of massage therapy, depressed mood decreased in the children’s parents, and the children’s white blood cell and neutrophil counts increased. “As a partnering therapist for Lucy’s Love Bus, a non-profit that gives grants for integrative therapies to children with cancer, I have seen the healing quality of massage therapy first hand.

Paying It Forward

Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap

When it came time for Elizabeth Smith to leave the home in which she had lived and raised her children for 52 years, the sense of loss she experienced for all the things she had accumulated and loved over the years immobilized her. “It’s just stuff, Mom,” said her daughter, wrapping a strong arm around her.

Enter Janet LaBerge, owner of Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, a clean-out business specializing in downsizing the elderly. “Don’t you worry, Mrs. Smith,” said Janet with equal compassion. “Keep your most precious items, and for those that no longer serve you, I will find a nice home with people who will love them as you have.”

A former Social Worker with the state, Janet recycles the useful items she cleans out to various nonprofit organizations and to individuals who would make good, loving use of them. “I don’t need to profit from the things that belong to others, when there are so many less fortunate people out there,” said Janet. “The important thing is that my customers know that the possessions they treasured are going to be further treasured by new owners for years to come. “Knowing that usually makes people like Elizabeth feel so much better about letting go of their possessions.” Janet gives a conservative estimate of

$30 thousand a year that she could make if she sold the used items online. Well known among professionals throughout the South Shore for her generosity, Janet calls it “paying it forward” when she recycles in this manner. “I have been very lucky to be as successful as I am in life,” she said. “If I can make the person who lets go of the item happy, and the person who takes it and cherishes it happy, then I am happy.”

“Dying to Be Me” by Anita Moorjani. In this truly inspirational memoir, Anita Moorjani  relates how, after fighting cancer for almost four years, her body—overwhelmed by the malignant cells spreading throughout her system—began shutting down. As her organs failed, she entered into an extraordinary near-death experience where she realized her inherent worth . . . and the actual cause of her disease.   In Dying to Be Me, Anita freely shares all she has learned about illness, healing, fear, “being love,” and the true magnificence of each and every human being! "The Four Agreements" and "The Voice of Knowledge" by Don Miguel Ruiz.  In The Four Agreements don Miguel Ruiz reveals the source of selflimiting beliefs that rob us of joy and create needless suffering. Based on ancient Toltec wisdom, the Four Agreements offer a powerful code of conduct that can rapidly transform our lives to a new experience of freedom, true happiness, and love.

"Feelings Buried Alive Never Die" by Karol Truman. Karol Truman has brought together in one book, Feelings Buried Alive Never Die ... the best of the best. She not only tells you why you feel the way you feel, but how these feelings all started. She then goes on to tell you how YOU can easily transform these undesirable feelings so that they no longer hinder your growth. What a gift! “Rediscovering Life: Awaken to Reality” by Anthony De Mello Based on a lecture given just months before his death, Rediscovering Life invites us to unlock the deeper meaning of our lives. By becoming aware of the circuitous and habitual nature of our limiting thoughts, we can find simple solutions that will release us from feelings of isolation, anger, sadness and depression. In short, De Mello offers us a new way to look at the world and God that will transform our lives.

Pilates-based Physical Therapy:

Bridging the Gap between Injury and Recovery

by Mary Delmonico

If you’ve ever suffered an injury requiring physical therapy—you know that it can be a long road to restore function in your body and to get back to the business of living. Since many injuries are caused by muscle imbalance and weakness, or improper movement pattern; there is a chance that you will suffer the same injury again. To bridge the gap between restoring function and correcting strength, flexibility, and stability issues, many physical therapists are adopting Pilatesbased therapy for patients with musculoskeletal and neurological imbalances. In many cases, patients emerge from physical therapy with increased strength and enhanced mobility, allowing them to return to activities that they haven’t enjoyed in years.  

Engaging Pilates in the recovery process is not entirely new, and in fact, the Pilates method has deep roots in the field of rehabilitation. Joseph Pilates created the method during his work with hospitalized soldiers during WWI. He developed specialized equipment like the Reformer and the Cadillac to work with bedridden patients—both designed to support the spine and to

help stabilize patients with decreased motility and severe muscle weakness. The key to the Pilates method is that it engages the mind, sparking a connection to intrinsic spinal muscles and the abdominal wall—which together make up the foundation of movement. Although made popular by dancers and celebrities as a leading-edge exercise to slim and shape—Pilates is now becoming widely accepted as an efficient method of physical therapy. Pilates-based therapy has become such an integral component in the physical therapy process that licensed physical therapists are now eligible to earn continuing education credits through professional Pilates workshops. Pilates rehabilitation programs and schools are also becoming more

Once a misalignment or compensation has been identified, Pilates training can help to restore proper firing patterns and to balance body strength and flexibility. Pilates movements spark the “turning-on” of a stabilizer muscle or intrinsic muscle—muscle groups that can only be reached through focused effort. These muscles are connected to the bones and joints, making the body more stable and less prone to injury.   In physical therapy, Pilates training addresses issues involving weakness in the ribcage system and the pelvic system. For example, a scoliosis patient, which would be a rib case system issue, would benefit from restoring muscle balance. Even a slight rotation of the spine can create tightness which translates to weakness and impaired mobility leading to an imbalance. Correcting the balance would involve stretching one side of the body and strengthening the other side with a 2:1 ratio of exercise. This type of patient would also benefit

from stabilizing the core, which can be a challenge due to the rotation.   A long-distance runner with lower back pain would be an example of a pelvic system issue. Long-distance running develops large muscle groups but doesn’t strengthen the core.  Without realizing it, many runners compensate by tucking the pelvis for stability. That compensation can lead to lower back pain. This patient would benefit by restoring the pelvis system by “turning on” those stabilizer muscles and opening up the hips to restore proper alignment.   In addition to aiding in recovery from injury, Pilates-based physical therapy can also increase body awareness and build confidence.  Injury can make us feel vulnerable and frail—especially as we age.  Working the mind and body connection with Pilates instills in us the power and grace of a body in motion. It can be very empowering. Mary Delmonico is a classical certified Pilates trainer and owner of Core Studio 291, an innovative Pilates and Personal Training studio in Hull, MA. With more than 18 years of experience and education of anatomy, physiology, physical rehabilitation, sports specific goals, and injury prevention, she is currently performing Pilates-based physical therapy at Peak Physical Therapy and Wellness Centers in Scituate, Norwell and Randolph.  781.925.2910   Peak Physical Therapy and Wellness is a physical therapy treatment center with clinics located in Scituate, Norwell and Randolph, combining modern technology with the art of hands-on treatment to help patients reach their “Peak” potential in the shortest time possible.  781.347.4686

Dreadful Ear Infections! by Dr Lisa Lewis

Ear infections (otitis media) are the most common illness affecting babies and children and the number one reason for visits to the pediatrician. What causes ear infections? The Eustachian tube normally drains fluids from the middle ear to the back of the throat. There are 4 tiny muscles that control the ability of the tube to open and close. Malfunction of these muscles may cause pain or affect the normal drainage of the tubes. Fluid back up in the middle ear allows bacteria or viruses to grow and multiply. How does chiropractic help? A chiropractic examination can identify misaligned vertebrae in the upper neck and base of the skull which can be stressing the nerves that control the muscles of the Eustachian tube. A gentle adjustment can be made which relieves the pressure on the nerve. Normal tone is restored allowing for drainage and avoiding antibiotics or ear tubes. Dr Lisa Lewis is a licensed Doctor of Chiropractic with over 25 years of practice on the South Shore. She cares for people of all ages with a special focus on pregnant women, babies and children.

structural therapies

popular as more and more physical therapists adopt the strengthening and conditioning movements. Watching a patient perform a Pilate’s movement can reveal problems in the body’s alignment because a misalignment interferes with the flow of the body’s natural movement. When the body is out of alignment, the brain has an amazing ability to compensate – reassigning the task for the body to be done in a different way. That compensation may work initially, but eventually it can put a strain on the body, causing pain or injury.


Set those endorphins free with Massage

Body works Healing Centre

Endorphins are much talked about these days. They’re basically chemicals released in the brain. They are actually natural painkillers, and when released, they make us feel good over all. Other specific effects of endorphins are changes in appetite, a feeling of euphoria, and even the release of sex hormones.

So what do endorphins have to do with massages? The fact is that whenever you get a massage, the pressure exerted on the skin triggers your nervous system. In turn, this stimulates the release of endorphins in the brain.

Did you know? Shallow breathers are not taking

in enough oxygen, which is what nourishes our blood and entire body. Breath-holders are not releasing the waste product of Carbon Dioxide from their body. Such patterns prevent us from living vibrantly; our bodies are supposed to be nourished and detoxified from regular breathing. Muscular tension can be the cause of restricted breathing patterns, but our thoughts and emotions can also alter the flow of our breath. Dysfunctional breathing patterns occur subconsciously, and when a conscious breathing technique is employed we become more aware of our tension, thoughts, and feelings that contribute to poor health.

Place one hand on the top of your sternum in the center of your chest. Inhale through your nose until you feel and see your hand rise, and keeping it lifted, pause and slowly exhale through your nose. Do this breath pattern three times. Set your other hand on your belly. Inhale until you feel and see your belly expand. Exhale completely. Repeat three times.

Try this:

Keep one hand on your sternum and the other on your belly to help you do this next sequence. Move into a gentle three-part breath pattern that is called viloma pranayama. Inhale into your belly softly until you cannot take in more air and then pause. Inhale to the top of your chest and pause.

Sit comfortably in a chair or on a sofa with firm pillows set behind your low back. Or sit on the floor with your legs crossed and your hips on a pillow. Keep your spine tall. Choose a position that you can sit in for at least 15 minutes.

Exhale smoothly and slowly from the top of the chest to your belly and until you are completely empty of breath. Take several recovery breaths. You might feel lightheaded or dizzy. Rest or repeat just two more rounds of this three-part breathing. Ready, Set, Breath!

We asked our Breathwork facilitators to tell us more about the type of Breath-work available . . . Here is what they said! Tara Nieves Therapeutic Breathwork Practitioner 781-724-6510 South Shore/Boston area A Breath Awakening session uses the powerful transformative tool of circular, diaphragmatic breathing to bring more energy, health, joy, and inspiration in all aspects of your life. As your facilitator, I support you in expanding your breath capacity and releasing suppressed emotions, toxicity, and energies that are no longer serving you. This, in turn, creates more space for what you really want in your life. Bethany Howard, NCLMT 508.429.9200 Holliston, Newton, Salisbury “Transformational Breath is a self empowering modality that integrates and heals on every level of our being; Physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Using a full connected breathing pattern Transformational Breath (TB) brings awareness and life-force into the entire body, clears mental tapes, integrates suppressed feelings, (imprints) stored in the sub-conscious, and enhances the connection to and experience of presence.” Dr. Judith Kravitz

Can flowers positively impact your moods and life? Yes! Scientific studies has shown that exposure to colors and aromas can have a positive influence on our emotional well being. Flowers inspire and nourish our souls. They encourage positive thinking. Just think of how happy you are when you receive a bouquet of fresh flowers! The colors we choose often have an underlying reason. We may be attracted to an orange flower because we are

When planning on incorporating plants into our home, are there any choices that help our overall well being? Absolutely! House plants are a great line of defense as more and more toxins and pollutants make their way into our homes. They help to remove them while oxygenating the air. Lady Palmand English Ivy are great choices. One of my favorites is the peace lily. It has gentle white flowers, is very easy to care for and has a strong peaceful energy.  

I heard playing in the dirt helps to keep us grounded?

lacking energy - and the color orange is full of energy!  

What part do the aromas play? Aromas stimulate positive memories and affect mood and cognitive function. This helps us to disconnect from the hectic pace of life and ease into a higher level of self- connection.

Spending time in the garden with our hands in soil actually helps to keep us more grounded. The Earth has a natural field of magnetic energy which we absorb when in contact with it. With the massive amounts of concrete and asphalt under our feet, plus the rubber and leather soles on our shoes, we do not make the necessary contact with the earth. So dig in the dirt and plant a seed to stay in balance! Better yet, do it barefoot and relish in the grounding benefits of the earth!

Recently a new law was passed reducing phosphorus in fertilizer, because of the damage it causes to our waterbodies. It is estimated that the Charles River watershed alone will save $130 million a year by eliminating phosphorus from fertilizers.   Phosphorus is not toxic, according to the Charles River Watershed Association, but it feeds bacteria and algae that in abundance can be harmful to people, animals and the natural ecosystem.   When choosing a fertilizer until the law takes effect, select one with little or no phosphorus.

“Cultivate a friend whose ways are seven. What seven? He gives what is hard to give, does what is hard to do, bear what is hard to bear, he confesses his own secrets and keeps your secrets, in times of trouble he does not forsake you, and he does not forsake you when you are down.”
