Healthy Living



January 2014 | Denver/Boulder Edition |

hope for every child. harmony for every family. We understand the struggles you face with your child each day. We help bring balance to their lives and peace back into your home.

The Brain Balance Program® uses a 3-prong holistic, non-drug approach including Sensory-Motor Activities, Cognitive Exercises and Nutritional Guidance

You have an amazing child with unlimited potential. But something seems to be getting in the way. They may have behavioral problems, social difficulty, or be experiencing academic frustrations. They may want social interaction but struggle to make and keep friends. They may know the answers for a test but test poorly. In other words, something is “out of balance.” Regardless of how small or big the challenges may be, they can make life harder for the child and for the whole family.

OPEN HOUSE EVERY MONTH Second Thursdays Both Locations 4:30-6:30pm

Bring the kids & stop in!

Schedule a free consultation to find out how the Brain Balance program can help your child.

BEFORE BRAIN BALANCE Our son cried every time we sat down to do homework, and we ended up bribing, threatening or whatever it took just to get the homework done. He has been on Ritalin for 4 years during school and had a tutor during the summer as well as an IEP.

AFTER BRAIN BALANCE His confidence has sky rocketed, and there are huge changes in communicating. He is showing interest in cooking, reading books, playing outside, and is more conscious of what he eats. Better TCAPT results… middle of the pack instead of the bottom!! Our family members and tutor say that he is a completely different kid! ~Mary

January Specials:

What is Cancer Anyway? '3&&-&$563&t+BOUItQN


ancer is not some foreign invader; cancer is a malfunction in your normal cell division process of your own cells. These cells exist in our bodies every day. Our healthy immune system destroys them. When, because of lifestyle choices (think food), emotional traumas, or excess toxins the number of these cells grows beyond what our immune system can handle, we “get� cancer. To reverse the pathological cell physiology gently and in a non-toxic way, it helps to understand the nature of a cancer cell and its relationship to the body’s cellular mechanics. All cancers have four characteristics: a weak immune system, low oxygen uptake by the cells, excess acidity, and excess toxins. A cancer cell is a cell whose oxygen intake had been reduced by more than 35%. Unfortunately, most conventional cancer treatments may make all four of these conditions worse and also may cause long-term damage to your organs. Battling cancer, the body’s resistance is already run down, so let’s introduce substances and nutrients which will have a direct healing and immune-enhancing effect. These more natural alternatives will focus on giving the body something that will immediately improve its healing capabilities. Learn at our free lecture how you can reduce your risk for cancer and increase your body’s healing abilities to fight cancer naturally.

rom the inception, Nature’s Inventory has always been about a passion to establish something better, to create products that make real change in people’s lives. Throughout the world people turn to herbal remedies, but many are intimidated by the complex jargon that masks the simplicity of homemade herbal cures. Using herbs to ease common ailments has been around since the beginning of time. Most of our products come from suggestions made by our customer’s needs. Our products are tested, then tested, then tested again and again and again before anything is ever released. All natural Wellness Oils are specially formulated topical oils designed to address physical and emotional needs. With over 100 products including, but not limited to, pain relief, sleep aids, restless legs, and stress relief! We also have

products for babies and dogs! All of our Wellness Oils are a blend of various therapeutic grade essential oils blended in a base of organic jojoba oil. The oil allows absorption of the essential oils into your bloodstream through the largest organ in your body, your skin! Our Herbal Teas are designed to rejuvenate your system on all levels to improve, cleanse, nourish and strengthen your health. Designed with the same goal of ailment alleviation in mind, we have products for sleep aid, chronic fatigue, immune support, and even fibromyalgia! All of our herbs are purchased USDA Certified Organic and come with no filler tea added, just the raw herbs themselves. Our Tinctures are liquid extracts of an herb. They are made by soaking the organic herbs in a drinkable alcohol. We use a mixture of organic grain alcohol and distilled water to get the require strength of approximately 55% alcohol. This way we can blend the herbs together. Tinctures have much longer shelf lives than dried herbs and the potency can remain for up to three years or more.

Nature’s Inventory ingredients are of the highest quality; we seek the best of the best and have recently gone organic. We do not use any petroleum (mineral oil) based ingredients, synthetic ingredients, or even preservatives because we feel it is vital to our health that these ingredients are never used. Not in our food, and not even in our skin care. Your skin is a living organ and contrary to popular belief, it is not a barrier. It absorbs what you put on it, and therefore, these products are ingested much like the foods we eat. 2551 Cole Street, Suite P Enumclaw, WA 98022 Toll Free Line: 866-607-2146

Feng Shui Tips Y • • • • • • • •

our spaces are a reflection of your life, so it’s important that everything is working and in order. Some things to consider: Make sure the walkway and front door of your home are clear, inviting, clean and the door opens silently and completely. Use an interesting painting or eye-catching rug in the foyer to entrance those who enter. Make sure all burners and oven work on the stove; it’s a reflection of how one nurtures their life. Place a mirror or reflective surface so you can see behind you when cooking. Place your office desk so you can see the door without turning. This is called the Power Position. Windows (home and car) should be clean and in good repair to have a “clear view” of your life. Fix leaky faucets. Dripping water is considered energy draining out of life. Replace burned-out light bulbs to make sure you have good “illumination” on your path in life. Clear the clutter, clear the way for energy to flow again in life. Clutter blocks energy flow.

Protect Yourself from Hidden Carcinogens Hidden Carcinogens are all around us - here are some easy things you can do to protect yourself. DETOX - Detox your body on a regular basis to prevent buildup of environmental and dietary toxins LIVE PLANTS - Many common houseplants are known to absorb chemicals and airborne toxins as well as increase oxygen levels. WASH YOUR PRODUCE - Use a vegetable wash, lemon juice and peroxide, apple cider vinegar or mms to wash all the pesticide/toxin residue from your produce VEHICLE EMISSIONS - When in traffic, keep windows and outside vents closed DRY CLEANING - Avoid the convenience of dry cleaners - the chemicals they use are very toxic and can be absorbed through the skin SHAMPOO, CONDITIONER AND LOTIONS - Check the ingredients for all skin and hair care products - if they contain chemicals, find a natural alternative. COOKWARE - If you are cooking your food, make sure you use food grade stainless steel pots/pans. Nonstick pans can leach toxic chemicals into your food GLASS CONTAINERS - Buy and drink your water in glass whenever possible. Avoid products packaged in plastic as the toxins can leach into the contents. WATER - Whenever possible use R/O or Steam-Distilled water HVAC/COOLING SYSTEMS - Change/clean your air/heat filters often and upgrade them to higher quality filters. REMEMBER…. EVERYTHING that you PUT “IN” or “ON” your body - either feeds disease or fights disease… THE CHOICE IS YOURS. Scott Clair with Above and Beyond Vegan. See listing page 12.

Weight Loss Tips and Truths If you want to lose weight or maintain your weight, then you must be CONSISTENT.

HERE’S HOW: • Use a program to help you track what you eat. is a great online program, but use what works for you. • Only allow yourself a + or - 10 lb swing from your ideal weight. Talk to your doctor or decide for yourself at which weight you feel attractive, powerful and positive. • To commit to a 10-lb swing, that means you need to weigh yourself at least 3x a week and perhaps more. • Exercise is essential for good health and weight loss. Find some form of exercise you like to do. Say no to more commitments until you make daily exercise a habit. • Don’t eat after 8pm unless you absolutely have to. Eating late at night not only adds pounds, it also works against rest and sleep patterns. • Incorporate fresh fruits and vegetables into everything you eat, since most of us don’t get enough vitamins and fiber. Spinach with eggs; berries with oatmeal. • Reduce processed foods. Cereal, crackers, chips, cakes, donuts, cookies, pretzels…start by eliminating them one at a time. Watch your rounded belly go away. • Get a water bottle with measurements. Watch how much water you drink and drink more. Do you know that drinking too little water mimics the feeling of hunger and also makes your body retain water? • Nothing is off-limits. Just incorporate those things into your calorie plan every day. Plan for it. • If you fall off it for a day, accept that you are still learning how to best serve yourself and get right back to it. Start with one thing on this list and make it a habit. Then go to the next one. Research says we can only process and complete 1-2 new goals at a time.

Simple Safety Tips 1. Pay attention to your surroundings at all times. 2. Put away your cell phone, especially when walking to and from your car, in a park, or any public place. A distracted person makes an easy target. 3. Expand your world. Notice who and what is behind you as well as both sides, especially when entering a new environment. 4. Make eye contact and say hello to everyone you come in contact with, especially strangers. 5. Don’t listen to music when you walk or jog. Again, a distracted person presents an easy target. 6. Invest in a small but powerful flashlight. It’s a useful tool to scan a dark parking lot, or anytime at night. 7. Practice yelling. Not screaming, but a powerful yell that comes from deep within your core. 8. Listen to your inner voice. If something doesn’t feel right, remove yourself from the situation immediately. 9. Educate yourself. Knowledge is power, and the more you know about personal safety, the more empowered you become. 10. Turn the practice of awareness into a game to play with your children. It’s a great way to teach them personal safety in a fun, non-threatening way. Cheryl Ilov of The Delicate Dojo. See listing page 20.

Connect with Your Spirit Guides Your spirit guides truly want to connect with and support you in your journey on earth. They are like a wise older sibling who has been “on earth� before, so they can relate to what you are experiencing. Their messages can be in the song that you woke up singing or in the first thought or gut reaction you had to something. Don’t miss out on a possible fabulous experience! Here are six ways to foster a connection:

1) 2)

Close your eyes and take three deep breaths with the intention of releasing stress and negativity.


Give thanks for all of your blessings and “fun� life lessons


Ask your spirit guides what they would like for you to know.


Free write. Do not think, just write down everything that flows through your mind even if it sounds silly. Yes, this will be your own voice.


Give thanks and trust the information that you received.

Grassroots Gumption Citizen Action Wins Against Monsanto and More The Center for Food Safety (CFS), a national nonprofit advocating in the public interest, works to protect human health and the environment by curbing the use of harmful food production technologies and promoting organic and other forms of sustainable agriculture. It confirms that actions such as signing petitions really do make a difference. For instance, the CFS cites a hard-fought campaign that pushed the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to respond to a lawsuit and remove arsenic from chicken feed. They credit the thousands of consumers that joined the effort, saying, “Together, we forced the FDA to remove arsenic ingredients in animal feed used for our nation’s chickens, turkeys and hogs, and 98 of the 101 drug approvals for arsenic-based animal drugs will be withdrawn.� More recently, CFS reports that half a million citizen phone calls and emails had a significant effect in killing an extension of the so-called “Monsanto protection act� in the Senate. Formally named the Farmer Assurance Provision, the measure undermined the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s authority to ban genetically modified crops, even if court rulings found they posed risks to human and environmental health.

Peaceful Co-Existence between Animal and Human


he relationship we have with our animal companions can be as valuable or important as our human relationships. And like these other friendships, there may be times of conflict and of pain between you and your animal companion. As you move forward on your shared path in this lifetime, I invite you to consider these tips for a peaceful co-existence:

Trust that their behavior is about them and not you. They respond out of fear and pain, never anger and need you to interpret their actions verses reacting personally to them. Listen for the message behind their actions. They communicate with you non-verbally all of the time and can see the images you hold in your mind as you talk with them. Love them unconditionally as they do you. When they stretch your limits of who you are in your shared relationship it is their way to support your highest good. Lizanne Flynn of The Animals’ iView. See listing page 16.

Tips for Marvelous Manifesting!


o you ever feel like the Law of Attraction doesn’t seem to work for you? Here are some tips to turbocharge your manifesting skills and bring your dreams to life!

Go for the Feeling: The things/people/experiences we want will make us feel a certain way. Instead of trying to manifest a particular thing, focus on the emotion you’re looking for. Will that new car make you feel successful, or sexy, or safe? Emotion-based goals open up all kinds of possibilities, which can bring positive results much more quickly.

Get ready for great things by taking these easy steps to become a Master Attractor! Marcia Stanfield of the Aspen Program for Psychic Development. See listing page 24.

Make a To-Do List for The Universe: Once you know what you want, take the small steps that keep the energy going. Your action step may be “call the realtor” while the Universe’s job is to “Sell my current house.” Do your tasks, and let the rest happen.

Write Makes Right: Writing about your goals to clarify them, without the “buts” or “if onlys.” This gets your body involved – eyes, arm, hand. Just as athletes or musicians practice repeatedly, develop your “manifester-muscle memory” with regular practice.

Natural Iodine Supplementation A Must for Most Americans e all need iodine, yet most of us don’t get enough of it through our diet. A study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that iodine deficiency in the developed world has increased fourfold in the past 40 years and now affects nearly three-quarters of all adults. Numerous U.S. practicing physicians quoted widely in the media estimate that the incidence of hypothyroidism in our adult population may be between 30 and 70 percent. Thus, we can’t efficiently produce the thyroid hormones that serve as chemical messengers triggering nearly every bodily function. The presence or absence of iodine affects our every cell.


Natural Awakenings Detoxifed Iodine is 100 percent natural, raw iodine in an ethyl alcohol solution. We thank all those that are benefiting from this product and enthusiastically telling us their great results. H Available only at I My wife, who suffered from extreme fatigue and other symptoms, saw a dramatic increase in energy after just a few days of taking the natural iodine drops. Now if she misses a day, she’ll end up falling asleep in the middle of the afternoon, like she used to do before taking the iodine. It works! ~ Aaron My doctor told me that I had a hypothyroid condition, prescribed medication and was happy with the follow-up test results, yet I noticed no positive effects on my overall wellbeing. Within two weeks of using the Natural Awakenings Detoxified Iodine, I had more energy, felt more awake and enjoyed clearer thinking and greater peace of mind. People even comment that I look younger. I am a fan! ~ Larry

Be Aware of Hypothyroidism Symptoms Low thyroid function, or hypothyroidism, is the most recognized and obvious indicator of low iodine intake because the thyroid gland contains more concentrated iodine than other organs. Symptoms can range from extreme fatigue and weight gain to depression, carpal tunnel syndrome, high blood pressure, fibrocystic breasts and a variety of skin and hair problems. Hypothyroidism can further cause infertility, joint pain, heart disease and stroke. Low iodine levels also have been associated with breast and thyroid cancers. In children, insufficient iodine has been strongly linked with mental retardation,

deafness, attention deficient and hyperactivity disorder and impaired growth, according to studies by Boston University, China’s Jiao Tong University School of Medicine and France’s National Academy of Medicine. The answer is simple: Taking the right kind of iodine in the right dosage can rebalance thyroid function and restore health to the thyroid and the whole body.

Reasons Behind Iodine Deficiency Radiation: Almost everyone is routinely exposed to iodine-depleting radiation emitted by cell phones, Wi-Fi, microwave ovens and other electronic devices. Iodized table salt: The human body cannot utilize the iodine added to this product. Low-sodium diets: Failure to use healthy salts to fulfill sodium requirements, plus over-

use of zero-nutrient table salt in foods, leads to iodine depletion. Bromine: This toxic chemical overrides iodine’s abilities to nourish the thyroid, adrenal and other hormone-producing glands. A known carcinogen, it is used as an anticaking ingredient found in almost all baked goods, unless the ingredients specifically cite unbromated flour. Iodine-depleted soils: Due to poor farming techniques, iodine and other minerals in soil have declined, so most foods today are devoid of naturally occurring iodine. Proper iodine supplementation with a high-quality product like Natural Awakenings Detoxified Iodine can prevent harm by protecting the thyroid and other endocrine glands and restoring proper hormone production.

A Few Drops Can Change Your Life! You could feel better, lose weight or increase energy and mental clarity with a few drops of Natural Awakenings DETOXIFIED IODINE daily in water or on your skin when used as directed. o An essential component of the thyroid, A iiodine replacement has been reported tto give relief from: t%FQSFTTJPO t'JCSPNZBMHJB t)ZQPUIZSPJEJTN t3BEJBUJPO

Celebrates 20 Years of Conscious Living Read What People Are Saying About Natural Awakenings READER TESTIMONIALS



Natural Awakenings provides helpful information on natural health and environmental issues with a consistently positive perspective and tone, which is not always easy considering how serious and intimidating some of these topics are. It’s a rarity.

The response to our new magazine has been amazing! We are grateful for the opportunity.

Natural Awakenings magazine is the only advertising I use for my practice other than word of mouth referrals and it has brought us new patients consistently especially now that we advertise monthly. The quality of the leads is great and we really enjoy helping the holistic-minded patient. The publisher is great to work with and truly wants to see the business succeed. We plan on always advertising with Natural Awakenings and expanding our presence in the magazine.

~ Sayer Ji, founder,

I have changed so much over the last year finally realizing that life is so much bigger than me. I love this Earth and all the wonders that are a part of it, and your magazine contributes to my appreciation.

~ Theresa Sutton, Connecticut

Publications like Natural Awakenings reach many people and I’m so glad to be able to share a voice beyond the propaganda. ~ Melinda Hemmelgarn, RD, Food Sleuth

I picked up a copy of the new magazine today at Earth Fare and was so impressed—it’s filled with businesses and services right in my neck of the woods that I had no idea existed. I’m thrilled to have such a great resource. ~ Katy Koontz, Tennessee

It is unusual to see your level of writing and consciousness in a free publication. Thanks for a great work.

~ Kaih Khriste’ King, Arizona

I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your anti-aging article in Natural Awakenings magazine. Since this is a topic of great interest to me and something I’ve been following for a long time; it’s not often I run across fresh, new ideas and leading edge information. Great stuff. ~ Jim Donovan, author

~ Kerry Griffith & Sean Peterson, Ohio

It is difficult for me to even comprehend the enormous collaboration, deliberation and master-minding that has gone into creating what this publication has become. ~ Jacqueline Mast, Pennsylvania

I am impressed by the range of support provided to franchisees; it seems all the bases are more than covered to provide an owner the ability to be successful. Together with my experience, drive and desire to make a difference, it feels like a good fit. ~ Holly Baker, Arizona

Articles and topics like “Rethinking Cancer” push the envelope of what natural health has to offer to humanity. Readers intuitively know that we are on their side and appreciate having the facts and the freewill to make the decisions that are best for them. Competitors will come and go but if we continue to stay on the cutting edge of personal health, no one can stop us.

~ Reid Boyer, Pennsylvania

The editorial team is wonderful. It sets us apart from all our competitors. ~ Elaine Russo, California

~ Cate Vieregger, DDS, Colorado

This magazine changes lives. The health of many of our clients has improved as a direct result of reading about us in Natural Awakenings. Our deepest appreciation goes out to the NA staff for their level of integrity and their commitment to all-encompassing healing. ~ Jodie Mollohan, IntroCell, Pensacola, Florida

After I placed my ad in Natural Awakenings, it was seen by a local TV station and I became a guest on its News at 9 show. This is the only magazine I advertise in, and people tell me “I see you everywhere,” thanks to the number of places I can appear within this magazine. ~ Diana Sturm, Legacy Financial Planning, Mobile, Alabama

In all the newspapers, magazines and other areas of print advertising that I have done, the Natural Awakenings magazine has not only given me the greatest response, but has also been a source guide for those who are looking for my services. ~ Lori Bilbrey, Moon Haven Studio, Ringgold, Georgia
