In Castle Rock 303-517-6906

The courses include the philosophy, theory and applied techniques of Ortho-Bionomy, organized into weekly modules that are well suited for learning and to bring understanding into each student in an easy and comprehensive way. After completing the 10 weeks of required classes and finishing other requirements, the journey to become a Practitioner is formed.

The work has a profound ability to shift the effects of neurological trauma & physical trauma in the Enteric Nervous system. The work is Principle-based and rather than forcing the body to recover, O-B chooses to support the body into deeper self-recognition which becomes the catalyst for understanding and correction. Sessions often can often keep improving the body’s understanding for weeks. After 29 years in the massage and bodywork industry, I thought I was finished. I wanted out. I found Ortho Bionomy and it changed my mind, and my world. It’s subtle, gentle and profound. I recommend it to every therapist out there. No matter where you are in the process. You’ll love it! ~Shelly George, LMT

Courses are offered in both Denver and Grand Junction year-round. Currently enrolling in the Denver Program beginning November 2016.

e started a new activity here at Mile High Natural Awakenings headquarters. On the kitchen counter is a jar, a pen and a stack of paper scraps. We have committed to dropping a note in the jar every time we are grateful, inspired or moved by spirit. We’ll keep a communal tally of the miracles that are happening around us to enjoy at the end of the year! This came about because it has come to our attention that employees, Doug and Terry, have reached the age where they barely remember what they had for lunch yesterday, so remembering a whole year’s worth of good stuff is quite a stretch. That being said, we started this jar around Thanksgiving, and will enjoy reading the scraps we have already collected – quite a few! – on New Year’s Eve. We look forward to starting a new jar in 2016, and it appears likely we might have to buy another 20-lb jug of jalapenos(Doug) from Costco to have a jar big enough. Evidence and belief: a winning combination for manifesting even bigger and better miracles! Even the obstacles will have their silver lining and we look forward to looking back on the year from the perspective of all the good that happened! Life happening through us and not to us and all that. We’re committed to living from a place of gratitude, appreciation and awareness of the good all around us! According to the Chinese Zodiac, 2016 is the year of the monkey lining up with the element of fire. The year of the Fire Monkey starts February 8th. Expect a year of “adventure, resolve and innovation” and “a decisive and confident year.” One website writes, “An adventurous path and clear goals are this year’s mantra.” As author Gretchen Rubin writes in The Happiness Project, “The days are long, the years are short.” Perhaps 2016 will be a year of the wind beneath your wings (or the Fire Monkey breathing down your neck) to help expand your life. Remembering the big and small miracles throughout the year, even if 2016 went by in a blur, will hold them in a timeless place and bring you joy in quiet moments.

Conscious Living


ave you ever driven for miles only to realize that you had done the whole trip on automatic and you couldn’t remember the journey? Or you instantly react to someone or something, and you wonder why you reacted that way? It happens to most people. As we mature, we develop patterns, strategies and beliefs that settle into our subconscious and are automatically triggered when needed. But, what if old strategies and reactions no longer work in our mature life? That’s when conscious living comes into play. But what does that mean? Conscious is defined as: Perceiving, apprehending, or noticing with a degree of controlled thought or observation; done or acting with critical awareness. It means noticing, being aware and acting from that awareness: • Take the time to think about and choose the life you want.


By Removing Toxic Silver Fillings Did you know that amalgam (silver) fillings contain 50% mercury, and have been called “a biochemical train wreck in your body”?*

South Lakewood Dental is Certified Mercury Free and Mercury Safe!

Our office has used only non-amalgam products for restoring teeth for over a decade and we take every precaution to remove amalgams safely for your health and ours.

• Understand and change negative thoughts, patterns and behaviors you notice. • Become aware of your thoughts, words and actions – choose them consciously and carefully - live with self-awareness. • Live with awareness of your relationship to everything around you. Understand that your actions have consequences - choosing them consciously and carefully.

We offer biocompatibility testing to see which filling material works best for your body, especially for sensitive individuals.

Learn to live consciously with repetition and practice. Here are some tips: Know yourself. Examine your thoughts, actions, habits and behaviors. Work to eliminate those that don’t serve you.

All Holistic and health-minded individuals should demand the safe removal, handling, and disposal of silver fillings.

Become the observer. Look at yourself and your life objectively. Do you like what you see - if not, change it. Change your perspective; then do. Learn to look at life from another’s perspective and act based on that perspective. Do no harm. Be grateful. Appreciation of even the smallest things helps to open your heart and grow the good in your life.

*from Boyd Haley, Ph.D, Emeritus Professor of Chemistry at University of Kentucky

Be forgiving. Forgive and let go of the past to live in the present. Accept the unacceptable and move on. Living in the past, keeps us in the past. Meditate or pray. Going within to connect with Spirit to opens our hearts, creativity, passion and understanding.

20% off new patient exam and x-rays when you mention Natural Awakenings

Change what you do daily. Doing the same thing over and over leaves us in automatic mode. Change things up, learn something new, meet new people - make life interesting. Live in the present. We create our lives by the choices we make which can only happen in the present. Love yourself. You may not be perfect, but none of us are. Be patient and love yourself while you consciously learn and create your life. Tryna Cooper of Journeys for Conscious Living can be reached at See ad page 4.

Food for Thought for the New Year


ach New Year can be an extraordinary opportunity to be the change you want to see in this world, and to implement new and healthier ideas and values when with friends and family.

Consider this:

1. 2.


Helping ones that are less fortunate than you will make you appreciate more of what you already have; Giving to the ones in need can bring rich joy into your heart that is unparalleled. All of a sudden, you find yourself very fortunate, blessed, grateful and happy. Make it a point to avoid toxic food for your meals, buy only Organic and GMO free foods. All GMO foods have been sprayed with carcinogenic herbicides that harm not only us, but also kill the bees and birds. You are not only helping your own body but all of God’s creations to thrive in good health. We have been called by our creator to be stewards of this world, to “serve the garden in which we have been placed” (Genesis 2:15) and not to exploit and pollute it with our earthly garbage and greed. Making this small change may have a positive ripple effect all around you and will teach your children to respect God’s creation by keeping it free of pollution. When reflecting on the year past and reminiscing on the blessings received and the challenges survived with help from friends, the term “family” means not only our immediate biological relations, but all people close and dear to our hearts that stand by us unwavering and keep us strong. Friends can be the family our creator put in our path to accompany our journey and we ultimately choose for ourselves.

May you find peace, experience the unconditional love always offered to us and have a wonderful and prosperous New Year. Dr Katia Meier and the Clear Sky Medical team offer holistic options for your health and vitality. She can be reached at 303-790-7860. See ad page 2.

Pet Accidents Happen: Cleaning Tips


hen you own a pet, accidents happen. You leave the house clean and tidy, but when you come home and open the door, you are struck by an odor that says something has gone terribly wrong. Cleaning pet stains from carpet and upholstery can be difficult, but worth the extra effort. A halfbaked cleanup leaves your home smelling dirty, and areas of lingering dog waste or urine will attract your pet back to the same spot, where he will go again—and again! TO CLEAN URINE FROM CARPETS AND UPHOLSTERY: • Clean from the outside inward, using a dry towel to initially blot up as much urine as possible. • Next, rinse the area with water to dilute the remaining urine. • Repeat the first step to blot up as much urine and water as possible. • Finally, apply an enzyme solution to eliminate odors and stains. Use enough enzyme solution to penetrate the carpet fibers, pad, and all areas the urine may have penetrated. TO CLEAN DOG DROPPINGS: • If the droppings are solid, pick them up. • If the waste is wet, spray with a product such as Poop-Freeze, which solidifies the waste, and then pick it up. • Next, apply an enzyme cleaner to the area to remove any remaining odors and stains. Pet waste and urine contain tremendous amounts of protein, which bacteria love. As bacteria consume this protein, it creates a foul smell. To eliminate the smell you must eliminate the protein. This is where enzyme deodorizers come in handy, as they contain live micro-organisms that work to consume protein and put an end to the smell.

Backyard Beekeeping


eehives are popping up all over er – even on top of hotels and commercial buildings. This is good news since global bee popula-tions have been on a decline due to pests, diseases, pesticides, GMO crops, and Colony Collapse Disorder er (CCD). Healthy bee colonies are an essential and natural part of fruit, veggetable and flower pollination. Bees pollinate at least one third of all fruit, t veggies and nuts that we eat. Bees are vital to our survival. First, bees are not pets and even if you have a hive, you don’t really keep them like you would a dog, cat or bird. Bees leave their hive in search of pollen and nectar, foraging up to three miles away. Bees need relatively little care most of the year, with weekly checks during the summer months when there is a nectar flow. They know what to do and don’t need too much interference from humans. When bees are mentioned, most people think of honey. Bees store

honey to use as food during nectar droughts and during winter. This sweet, amber liquid can vary in color from blonde to dark depending on which flowers are in bloom when bees are foraging. Research has shown that raw honey helps strengthen the immune system, alleviate allergies, aids digestion, and helps to heal burns. Full of natural enzymes and other biological compounds, honey has many positive effects on the body. It also has antifungal properties and will never perish. Thousand-year-old honey found in ancient Egyptian tombs was still edible.

For those afraid to be up close to bees, know that most of the activity b takes place within the first two to t three feet of a beehive. Bees genert ally a fly straight up out of the hive and a then make their way to flowers. Most people won’t even realize that M there are bees around. Bees are far t too t busy collecting pollen and nectar to t worry about humans. Although you can’t take a bee on a walk or sit with one curled up on your lap, they are essential to our food supply and our survival. Backyard beekeeping is a great way to help the local ecology, pollinate your garden, and collect a little honey for yourself. Once you start learning about bees and their importance to humans, you may find them more interesting and complex than you previously thought. Nick French of Frangionsa Farms can be reached at See listings pages 7 and 15.



HELP SAVE THE HONEY BEES PEAK WELLBEING SOLUTIONS Nick French at Frangiosa Farms Saving bees, one hive at a time. Did you know that more than 1/3 of what we eat is pollinated by bees? Adopt a bee hive and you will be helping to support and sustain healthy bee colonies that are vital to pollination and the ecology.

The Whole-Body Benefits of Exercise


he American Heart Association recommends that people exercise at least 150 minutes per week to achieve optimal health benefits. Regular exercisers release endorphins that help them feel great while also benefitting brain function, heart health, eye health and bone density. Brain function improves immediately after exercise. Exercise stimulates heart rate and oxygen uptake to the brain, causing growth in important neural connections and a simultaneous drop in stress hormones. Heart health is improved by consistent aerobic exercise which lowers overall blood pressure and resting heart rate. Over time you can work out for longer periods as your cardiovascular conditioning improves. According to WebMD, regular exercise can decrease risk factors for macular degeneration glaucoma and give you a break from the computer screen. Exercise may give you a little bounce in your step and increased flexibility in your muscles and joints. Strength training (try a group class!) can help maintain your bone density. Consistency is key. Consider pairing up with a friend to work out if you are intimidated by the training equipment at the gym. The added benefit of a workout partner is that you become more accountable—not just to your workout, but to your partner’s as well. With regular exercise, you’ll notice a boost in your metabolism, an improvement in your hormone profile, and a more upbeat attitude. To maximize these benefits adopt a diet rich in fresh produce, hormone-free meats (or consider tofu), and low sugar consumption. By focusing on an approach that targets aerobic exercise, strength training, and flexibility, you will notice how individual parts of your body function better over time.

Relax with Herbs


hen we feel drained, it is tempting to fill the void with stimulants such as coffee or Ginseng. Unfortunately, the energy gained comes at cost; there is no such thing as free energy. Imagine energy as a metaphorical reservoir – the water held within is precious and in limited supply. Temporary vitality that is “bought” or manufactured with stimulants pulls from this reservoir, and the end result is further depletion. Over time, running on adrenaline and caffeine can result in exhaustion, lowered immunity and mood imbalances. Often, when one craves stimulation, what’s really needed is relaxation, quiet time and rest. Sufficient, high-quality sleep is the most overlooked source of energy.

Fortunately, we can refill this vital reservoir for when we truly need it. Nutrientdense foods offer deep, cellular nourishment. Dark, leafy vegetables contain B-vitamins, which promote energy and detoxification; pastured meats and sustainably sourced fish offer protein; healthy fats such as olive, avocado and coconut oil are satiating; brightly colored fruits and vegetables offer flavanoids and antioxidants. Instead of energizing herbs such as Ginseng, Eleuthero, and Guaraná, consider our mineral-rich herbs like Stinging Nettle, Red Clover and Oatstraw. If you have that “tired and wired” sensation, calm the nervous system with herbs such as Lemon Balm, Skullcap, Lavender, Catnip and Passionflower.

A Dog’s Nose



he old adage that a healthy dog has a cool, wet nose is not far from the truth. The condition of a pet’s nose can tell us a lot about what is going on beneath the surface. Dry Warm Nose – In Chinese medicine this can be one of the signs of Yin deficiency. The cooling, moisturizing energy of the body is depleted. Dry Cracked Nose – More severe than dry warm nose, the cracked surface (along with dry cracked paws, nails/beds, a dull coat, and dry flaky skin) can be a sign of Blood deficiency. This is not the same as Western medicine anemia, but is instead a more severe progression of Yin deficiency. Loss Of Color (Depigmentation) – This is a classic sign of Chi deficiency and since the lung is the organ that governs the nose, a lung Chi deficiency should be considered. Growths – These can be a sign of immune system disorders or cancer. When it comes to your pet’s health, the nose knows! Bring these changes to the attention of your veterinarian. Acupuncture, diet changes, herbal therapies and supplements can redirect the energy imbalances that can lead to disease. The answers to keeping your pet healthy can sometimes be as plain as the nose on their faces! Ayse Washington, DVM, of Pawsitively Zensational Veterinary Services can be reached at 828712-5419.

MINDFUL LIFE PROGRAM Laura Bartels 520 S. Third St. Carbondale 970-633-0163


e’ve gotten used to short, abrupt, impersonal visits with medical professionals. We’ve trusted these providers to know what’s best for us and to help us heal. Yet, our country is sicker, more obese, and more disease-ridden than ever. There’s something missing. We call for a new kind of health care leader to emerge – people like Dr. Mark Hyman, Dr. Kelly Brogan, and Chris Kresser, who take the time to help us get to the root cause of our conditions instead of covering them up with prescription drugs. Doctors are experts in disease. When we have a broken leg or out-of-control infection, see a conventional doctor. However, when it comes to what it takes to be vibrantly healthy, a conventional medical doctor is in the dark. This is where nutrition therapists and health coaches excel. They are experts in health and how to be healthy in the real, modern world. It is their business to help people get proactive about their health and understand the root causes of their symptoms. A health coach is a cheerleader, a guide, a holistic practitioner, a cleaneating expert, and a healthy living guru—from relationships to career to mindset to stress levels. A health coach will help you navigate all the confusing nutrition and lifestyle information; they can answer questions; provide practical tools; and hold you accountable to reach your goals. The right coach can save years of health struggles. Good health is foundational to ALL success in life, and we all need a little help sometimes. So, consider a health coach to help take back your health! Clara Wisner is with rEvolutionary Lifestyle and can be reached at 720-202-2326 or See listing page 22.

Ways to Ease Stress


tress not only causes memory loss and a lowered immune system but it affects your digestion and alters your DNA. We all know you cannot fully avoid stress. But did you know research done by REIN/McCarty Studies found stress can cause a permanent kink in your DNA? The very thing we pass on to our offspring can be altered by stress. So what do we do about it? Memory Loss caused by stress can be alleviated through the Kirtan Kriya meditation. Used by the Yogi Bhajan, mantras are spoken normally, then whispered. This whole meditation takes about 15 minutes and is easy to ingrain into your daily schedule. Kirtan Kriya relaxes the mind, body and soul while increaseing the mind’s ability to retain information. Diffusing Rosemary essential oil will help you focus and retain information. Use this herb when you feel stress is causing memory loss and fatigue. Need to relax and calm the mind? Several herbs make a great tea without altering your ability to drive and complete necessary tasks. Chamomile, Lavender and Linden Flower when combined is very fragrant and pleasing to the taste buds. When turning in for the night, soak in an Epsom Salt bath with a few drops of Lavender oil, Jasmine or

White Sage. The magnesium sulfate in Epsom Salt will relax muscles and joints, breathe in deeply to enjoy the scented essential oil. Dry herbs can be added to a muslin tea bag and soaked in the bath water as well. Thyme, Lemon Balm and Chamomile make a great masculine scented bath soak, not to mention Thyme and Lemon Balm help the immune system. Uncramp that DNA and enjoy life!

Positively Reinforcing Your Child


hildren need to hear what they are doing well. This builds their self-esteem and lets them know in a nourishing way what you want them to be doing. We are always reinforcing our children’s behavior whether we are aware of it or not. Here are some tips.

Be specific – Children respond well to specific praise. Tell them exactly what behavior and actions you liked. “Thank you for putting all of your toys away,” “You spoke to your sister in a very caring way,” “I feel so proud of you for finishing your homework.” Let your feelings show – Smile and feel how proud and loving you are of your child - he will feel it. Hugs work great as well. Wait to correct – The negative attention of a correction reinforces the bad behavior that might be designed to get a rise out of you. Take a deep breath and let go of the trigger before giving the correction. Give praise as soon as your child makes any positive change such as listening while you are speaking. Give lots of it – In 1972, researchers Robert and Evelyn Kirkhart found that children in classrooms thrived best when the ratio of feedback was five parts positive to one part constructive. Focus on the good – The more you tell your child about the specific good things he is doing, the more he will do those behaviors. The opposite is also true. Praise your children frequently and watch them flourish! Dave Casdan, MA, with Family Life Coaching, can be contacted at 303-710-1984. See listing page 18.

Why wouldn’t you put this same level of planning into your life? Mapping out your goals, desires, passions and vision; comparing them to where you are today; and creating paths to get you there are essential to experiencing what you want and dream about. With all of the hustle and bustle of the world around us, it can be easy to lose sight of what we want to experience and who we want to be. Take time to ground yourself and focus on your intentions. Once you have a clear vision of your goals, you can create a plan to get there. It is important that your plans include specific, measurable steps so you can track and celebrate your progress. Sharing your goals and plans with friends and family not only create accountability, but will be your cairns along the way to keep you on track. When we come across an obstacle, we alter course appropriately. Consider those people or circumstances that may throw you off course. Having a contingency plan will greatly reduce the stress and prevent you from losing sight of your peak. Jennifer Miller, Life & Wellness Coach, is with Peak Wellbeing Solutions.

Be Proactive with YOUR HEALTH


et a Nutritionist help you stay on track for your healthiest, happiest year. A diet analysis can point out deficiencies, improvements to be made, and provide you with a personalized meal plan that cleanses and nourishes your body. Preventing chronic stress is one of the most important things you can do for your health. Physical symptoms of stress include: low energy; headaches; tummy troubles; aches, pains, and muscle tension; irritability; anxiety; insomnia; and frequent colds. If you experience symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath, sweating, nausea, trembling, shaking, or dizziness, make sure to see your doctor as these can be signs of an anxiety or heart attack. If you are feeling run down or ill, let your body rest so symptoms don’t get worse. We live in a society that views being busy and constantly on the go as somewhat of a status symbol, resulting in feelings of guilt or shame for slowing down or having to take a day off. But what happens when we stay busy all the time? Not only do our bodies pay the price, our relationships suffer. We can’t be truly present for those we love if we are busy all the time, or don’t let our bodies rest and heal when we aren’t feeling well. Don’t feel guilty for taking care of yourself or for slowing down. To be fully present is the greatest gift you can give to yourself and others.

Four Keys to

Living Mindfully


o live a meaningful life of intention, we need to train our busy, distracted minds to make healthy choices that lead us to the life we want to live. Four key areas of mindfulness to make this transformation possible are: attention, values, wisdom and an open heart. The first step is to develop your attention by establishing a daily meditation practice, even if it’s just 10 minutes a day. This trains the mind to attend to what you choose. One example of concentration meditation is mindfulness of breath. Values are critical to mindfulness. Inner peace, genuine happiness and well-being result from living a life that is in alignment with one’s values. More mindfulness in your daily activities + healthy choices that align with your values = a sense of well-being and calm. Now you are able to observe yourself, others and the world more accurately, recognizing unhealthy habits and tendencies, biases, projections, and emotional triggers. Increasing wisdom helps to recognize the true sources of suffering as well as the true sources of genuine happiness and wellbeing. An open heart cultivates the seeds of loving-kindness and compassion, rather than the anger, jealousy, ill will or resentment. Living a Mindful Life can create the life of your dreams!

The bees donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use the pollen from a variety of other ďŹ&#x201A;owers or plants, so the content of the honey is very consistent.
