Dear Friends, We are pleased to share with you the newest edition of The Healthy Living Directory. Created by Birch Studio in 1996, this terrific resource has helped to promote the natural health community in and around Charlottesville for 17 years. So we were very honored when asked to take it over and welcome it into our own line of publications and are proud to further its mission to serve our holistic community. New for the 2014­–15 edition of The Healthy Living Directory, we are welcoming the participation of conventional medical practitioners who embrace a holistic approach. By broadening the scope of The Healthy Living Directory and its distribution, we believe advocates of healthy living will find a greater voice in our community. This will lead to a greater awareness of the many terrific people and organizations in both the conventional and the complementary medical communities that are committed to an understanding of health that encompasses body, mind and spirit. We’d especially like to thank The Healthy Living Directory’s founders, David and Jenny Robinson of Birch Studio, and KeriAn Dodson of Rebecca’s Natural Food, who were all instrumental in helping us expand the vision for this new edition of Charlottesville’s Healthy Living Directory.

mindbodyspirit stuck in a salad rut?

An easy approach to tossed salads

combines greens with fruit, nuts

or seeds and cheese. Choose from whatever you have on hand or whatever you’re craving. For a vegan twist, use onion or garlic instead of cheese. Toasted nuts are especially delicious. Use slightly sweet roasted veggies or canned fruit when fruit is out of season.

Season friendly combos to try. Spring: grated beets, pine nuts and blue cheese canned mandarin oranges, peanuts and red onion Summer: strawberries, pecans and feta, grapes, cashews and green onions Fall: pears, walnuts and gorgonzola, cranberries, pumpkin seeds and shallots Winter: apples, goat cheese and almonds, roasted butternut squash, pistachios and roasted garlic

mindfulness meditation Research at Johns Hopkins that included more than 3,500 participants has confirmed what generations of people have long asserted — that intentional, active meditation can reduce some symptoms of anxiety and depression. The results (published in January 2014 indicate that the benefits of meditating 30 to 40 minutes a day are greater than the effects of a placebo. The article clarified that this was not just sitting and doing nothing but rather “mindfulness meditation,”

a practice of accepting feelings and thoughts without judgment and relaxing body and mind.

barefoot & beautiful A common and painful foot complaint is plantar fasciitis, an

inflammation of the ligament that connects your heel to your toes that is especially painful after being off your feet for a bit. Causes include standing, walking or running on hard surfaces for long periods of time and going barefoot often or wearing shoes with no arch support.

Try these preventative exercises.

• Before you get out of bed in the morning, point your big toe and pretend to write out the alphabet with it.

• Roll a tennis ball under the arch of your foot for 10 minutes. If you have pain at the end of the day, substitute a frozen water bottle for the ball.

• Loop a belt or a rolled towel around the ball of your foot. Hold on to the ends and pull steadily and gently toward your body in 30-second stretches, repeating up to five times.

Reach for "Yoga is the unifying art of transforming dharma into action, be it through inspired thought, properly nurturing our children, a painting, a kindness or an act of peace that forever moves humanity forward." ­— Micheline Berry


Restore and Revitalize with yoga

balance By Claire Yezbak Fadden

S

tanding on my yoga mat, I step my legs about three feet apart and point my right foot forward. My arms form a T, and I rotate from my waist, sending my left hand into the air and my right hand sliding down my left leg toward my foot. Patricia, our yoga teacher, encourages us to “breathe deeply.” Some 20 minutes earlier, I’d unrolled my mat in line next to Virginia, Marisol and Beatriz, my yoga pals. There’s a bunch of us who weave this bit of “me time” into our routine. About 30 men and women are relying on these bends, twists and stretches to help unite mind, body and spirit. As I slowly inhale and hold this twisted triangle pose, my thoughts page back to eighth grade. My classmate Maggie’s 13th birthday party. If I had been practicing yoga then, I would have won that game of Twister instead of toppling over after her mom called out: “Right hand on blue. Left foot on green.”Since junior high I’ve learned a lot about mental and physical adaptability. The fact that I’m the mother of three sons has contributed greatly. But recently I credit my enhanced limberness and awakened inner peace to yoga. Three mornings a week, for a blessed 75 minutes, my world stops as I stand tall in mountain pose and breathe from my belly. Before I started practicing yoga, my body (and spirit) sent out steady, achy

9


As an eighth grader, I didn’t realize that playing a “game that ties you up in knots” was a peek into the future. At 13, how could I know that pretty much everything in life takes agility? College, relationships, children, careers. We have to find balance, but no one tells you how you lost it or where to look for it after you’ve discovered it’s missing. So it’s no wonder that when we take on too much we topple over. I am a loving part ner (left foot on yellow) and a good mother (right foot on blue). I hold down a job (left hand on red), care for an aging parent (right foot on green) and try to find a smidgen of time for myself (right hand on blue). My yoga class is helping me put my Twister days behind me. These days I find balance in my wobbly attempts to stand in tree pose. I concentrate on being still on the inside so that later, when one of life’s inevitable twists or turns arise, I can stay calm on the outside. Still standing in a revolved triangle, Patricia’s soft voice encourages the class to breathe deeply. “Open up your chest by turning a little more toward the back of the room.” My thoughts interrupt: What’s for dinner? Did I unplug the iron? I wonder if the check hit the bank yet. Boy, I’d love a piece of cake. Yoga has improved my range of motion, but I’m still working on the “letting-go-of-mythoughts” part of this restorative discipline. With encouragement from yogis like Patricia, and thanks to my friend Sue’s astute observations, I’m gradually getting it. During these few minutes, worries about food, kids and money float through my mind like bubbles in the breeze. I remind myself that I have the rest of the day to figure out what to get my niece for her birthday. But for now, while I’m in class, I work on staying in the moment. Patricia, like Maggie’s mom did decades ago, calls out a new pose — right foot and right hand on green, left foot and left hand on blue. I slowly assume the Downward Facing Dog position and breathe deeply.

complaints. These pain-racked signals culminated in an all-out demand for me to learn how to relax my soul and quiet my mind. One undeniable yoga signpost came during lunch with my good friend, Sue. After our usual updates about kids, husbands and careers, our girl talk took a more personal tilt. “So what are you doing for yourself these days?” she asked, in between bites of shared tiramisu. I was glad she asked. As a result of a scare with high blood pressure, I had become a self-proclaimed expert about the benefits of meditation. And with the over-thetop enthusiasm characteristic of the newly converted, I launched into a PowerPointworthy presentation on the pluses of quiet contemplation. Sue smiled and then asked, “Have you ever considered yoga?” After another bite of dessert, she added, tentatively: “You know you are, uh, wound a bit tight sometimes.” I knew she wasn’t referring to the snug spirals of my naturally curly hair. In her own understated way, Sue was suggesting that I — like lots of women — had a tendency to overreact to everyday dilemmas. I was guilty of attacking each mini-drama as a major battle. And maybe, just maybe, my current coping style wasn’t the sanest way to live if I wanted to be around to meet my grandkids.

Prioritize getting a good night’s sleep.

According to the Mayo Clinic, poor-quality sleep makes you more susceptible to viruses and may reduce your body’s ability to fight infection and inflammation. Studies also show that long-term sleep deficiencies put you at greater risk of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease.

POPCORN is a great whole-grain snack! Look online for intriguing flavors — like the savory combination of chili powder and lime, the gourmet twist of Parmesan and garlic salt, the sweet-but-light pairing of honey and butter, or the salty-sweet match of peanut butter and maple syrup.

Did you know that vinegar has antibacterial properties?

Studies show that it kills about 90% of the bacteria and 80% of the viruses it comes in contact with. Safe for most surfaces — including stainless steel, chrome, brick, wood, leather and silver — vinegar is also great for cleaning windows and taking stains out of carpets. Use it to deodorize rooms, cars, closets and even shoes, or mix it with baking soda to clear clogged drains.

Look online

to find instructions for diluting and applying

vinegar in these and dozens of other household uses.

What do Sudoku and salmon have in common? It’s great that you’re doing Sudoku and crossword puzzles to keep your mind sharp, but are you also feeding your brain? Consumption of oily fish, including salmon, has been tied to low rates of dementia. Blueberries provide your body with a specific antioxidant that counteracts free radicals and protects against age-related diseases. Antioxidant properties are also found in coffee, tea and pomegranate juice. Guard against a decline in cognitive abilities with the vitamin E found in nuts and seeds. Finally, avocados and whole grains contribute to good blood flow, which is crucial for brain health.
