Audubon Everglades Presents Eliana Ardila Ardila and Marc Kramer of “Birding by Bus” Tuesday, November 5, 2019 6:30pm – 8:45pm Origin Church, 6073 Summit Blvd, Haverhill, FL 33415

D

ynamic couple Marc Kramer and Eliana Ardila Ardila of “Birding by Bus” will be the featured speakers at the November 5 Audubon Everglades program. In their talk Marc and Eliana will share photos and stories from their incredible adventures birding through North America in their VW Bus. The couple met in 2006 and connected through their love of adventure, animals and birding. Marc is a veterinarian who specializes in the care of birds and exotic pets, and Eliana is the executive director of Project PetSnip, a low-cost spay and neuter clinic where she also multi-tasks as a veterinary technician. In 2018, Marc and Eliana stepped away from their regular jobs to pursue their dream of a North American birding big year. They put their lives on hold and hit the road, traveling 25,000 miles from Florida to Alaska and back in a 1978 Volkswagen Westfalia Bus they named “Valentina.” In between birding and repairs on the VW, the coupled mar-

ried in Alaska and spent their honeymoon birding in Attu. Marc and Eliana share their big year journey and other adventures with 12,000 followers on their Facebook and Instagram pages. Fans of the couple are birders, photographers, naturalists, adventurists, and Volkswagen enthusiasts. Audubon Everglades speaker programs are free and open to the public. More information is available at www.auduboneverglades.org Marc Kramer and Eliana Ardila Ardila with "Valentina", their 1978 Volkswagen Westfalia Bus Audubon Everglades, a not for profit organization, serves the communities of Palm Beach County with activities and programs to educate and inspire people to conserve birds, wildlife, and the environment that supports them.

National Audubon Society, is supported by its chapter members and donors. Education and conservation are at the forefront of our mission, and Audubon Everglades field trips and monthly member programs are free and open to all. Learn more at auduboneverglades.org

Everglades University Opens Enrollment for Marine Resources Management

E

verglades University (EU) is excited to announce they are now enrolling for their new program, the Bachelor of Science Degree with a Major in Marine Resources Management. EU’s new program offering aligns with its other green and sustainable programs, including its Bachelor of Science Degrees with majors in Alternative and Renewable Energy Management, Environmental Policy and Management, and Land and Energy Management. The BS in Marine Resources Management provides the opportunity for students who wish to apply specific knowledge of marine, coastal and wetlands areas to the business of managing the natural resources found in these ecologies. Sensitive to the growing need for both public and private entities to be environmentally responsible, EU seeks to prepare its graduates with the knowledge and skills that will help them successfully negotiate business, science and policy concerns, and position them to drive ethical and sustainable decision-making. The growing need for trained professionals in these fields is rising at a faster than average rate. The National Bureau of Labor Statistics (NBLS) anticipates that employment opportunities for environmental scientists and specialists will grow eight percent in the next 10 years as a result of “heightened public interest in the hazards facing the environment” (www.bls.gov/ooh/life-physical-andsocial-science/environmental-scientists-and-specialists.htm).

THE POWER OF OUR OWN BREATH Inhale love, Exhale gratitude

D

o you hold your breath in stressful situations? Do you find yourself throughout the day forgetting to breath? Many of us do. Breath connects us to life. We all breath, right? Since our first breath, as we entered the world, we have been breathing. In reality, most of us are only using around 20-30% of our lung capacity. We are not taking full diaphragmatic breaths. We don’t really give our breathing much thought unless we begin to have respiratory issues such as asthma, emphysema or other life threatening respiratory disorders. More than food and water, our breath is most important to our livelihood. Every breath we take is a gift. As we open up and connect with our breath, the same measure opens up in our lives. This is the gift that we receive though the practice of Transformational Breath®. The gift of joy, peace and fullness of life. Transformational Breath® is a powerful holistic healing system that is able to reach all levels of our being; body, mind and spirit. It teaches us how to take a full conscious and connected breath. This type of breath work is powerful, for as we begin to breath fully with our diaphragm, our breath goes deeply into our body so we can experience the healing we have been looking for. There are many benefits through practicing Transformational Breath®. These benefits include improve physical health, cleared emotional pain, enhanced mental clarity and a stronger connection to self and spirit.

THE THREE LEVELS OF TRANSFORMATIONAL BREATH®

The first level of Transformational Breath® is Physical. Transformational Breath® educates us on an individual basis on how to breath properly and more fully with our diaphragm, which is the muscle of respiration. It is important to learn how to have a full connected and relaxed breath. This simple and natural way of breathing fully will give you many health benefits such as increased oxygenation throughout your body, improved energy levels, stimulate circulation and detoxification, balance the five systems of flow (arterial, venous, nerve, lymph and Qi) throughout the body which will improve the functioning of many of your internal organs. The second level of Transformational Breath® is Emotional and Mental. Your intentional breath will help you to explore emotional holdings that create physical stress, pain and disease. If you change your breath you can change your life, and even stop or prevent anxiety or panic attacks. Your breath is a practical and easy tool that is always with you. Breathing deeply creates the space for our unresolved emotional issues to be resolved permanently. Have you ever heard of the saying that “our issues are in our tissues?” What this means is that we store our emotions in our bodies. In cognitive talk therapy you can talk about your issues for years without any resolve as you are not getting into the emotions that are stored deep in your body tissue. The breath takes you there. It has been said that one

breath session is like two years of talk therapy. That’s how efficient your own breath is for deep emotional and mental healing. In Quantum physics there is a law called “the law of entrainment”. The high vibration of your own breath which is essentially life force energy or Qi will naturally go into the areas of lower vibration in the body to raise the frequency. With the Breath, any unresolved emotions that are causing pain and suffering will naturally be raised to a higher frequency and will be integrated once and for all. It is so important to release sadness, anger or fear in our tissues. If we don’t they cause stagnation in our body and continues to create more pain and disharmony in our lives. Pain is a sign that something is out of balance, so listen to your body as pain is your body’s way of getting your attention. The third level of Transformational Breath® is Spiritual. A full connected breath creates a space within you so you can connect more deeply with your own inner beliefs and values. You will be free to live in the present moment and be all that you are meant to be. As your internal vibration begins to elevate you will experience the frequency of love and your life will reflect that with an over all sense of well being. You will be in the flow of life as your life is a reflection of your open and connected breath. I facilitate Transformational Breath® Workshops each month in various locations all around Palm Beach County. I invite you to come and breath with me soon! To find out where I am hosting my next offering please call office 561762-4273 or visit my Business Facebook Page www.facebook.com/AgapeHealingArts/ May we all aspire to our highest healing through our own Breath. Let’s breath in all our good so we can live a life of balance and harmony. It is time! Dr. Bella Lauren AP, DOM Holistic Physician, Herbalist & Midwife.

Do “somethin’ special”

H

ere we are again. The time of year when we pause and give thanks for all of the wonderful people, places and things in our lives. Why have we been blessed to receive all of these wonderful gifts? Where did they come from? Have you read The Lost Choice by Andy Andrews? He is one of my favorite inspirational authors. He writes about how to live our lives with greater meaning and purpose. Though published more than ten years ago, The Lost Choice is a message of hope and promise as powerful today as the day it first appeared in print. Maybe you’ve heard of ‘The Butterfly Effect’? The idea is that seemingly small choices or actions, like the flapping of a butterfly’s wings, over time can have profound effects, such as a storm forming on the other side of the globe. Through Mae Mae, a wonderful character in The Lost Choice, Andrews explains how important our choices are: “Most folks don’t see how important they are . . . how much they matter to all of us. So they never choose to do somethin’ special with their lives. And not makin’ a choice? That is a choice . . . a lost one.”

Reading it, I began to think about all the people in my life to give thanks for. Remembering choices I had made, and how I came to them. Over forty years ago a friend of mine was visiting me in college. She said she was excited to share something amazing with me a friend of hers had shared with her. That “thing” was reflexology, and after my first session, I was smitten. I found a class at Hippocrates Health Institute, run by Ann Wigmore, who considered reflexology the key to better health. I started giving reflexology to anyone who would let me, and eventually was able to start a full-time practice. So many people I “touched” wanted to learn how to perform reflexology that I later created a series of reflexology training programs. Now, looking back, I realize that I have trained thousands of reflexologists who have touched the feet of hundreds of thousands of others. Based on the material I developed for my courses, I wrote a book about reflexology that is now in the hands of over half a million people in several languages around the world. All I did was make an inspired choice to share something profound that I loved with others. My friend’s friend had shared it with her (who knows how many more people were in the chain before

them). My friend then shared it with me. I started sharing reflexology with others, many of whom started sharing reflexology with still others. It really took on a life of its own - The Butterfly Effect in action! That is what The Lost Choice is talking about. Choosing to “do somethin’ special” with our lives, and seeing how those choices affect the lives of so many others. Give thanks to all of those who made choices that brought you all the wonderful things you have in your life today. Make your own inspired choices and then take action, and watch the ripples spread throughout your life and the lives of those you touch. What choices do you feel inspired to make today?

Switching to organics has quick payoffs, reducing agrochemicals in the body by 94 percent within a month, Japanese researchers report. They tested the urine of study participants looking for six neonicotinoid insecticides and another substance generated as a result of their decomposition in the human body. “I think the research results are almost without precedent and are highly valuable in that they present actual measurement values showing that you can dramatically reduce the content levels of agrochemicals in your body simply by changing the way you select vegetable products,” commented Nobuhiko Hoshi, a professor of animal molecular morphology with the Kobe University. Another study from researchers at the University of California at Berkeley studied 16 children and showed that one week after switching to an organic diet, malathion pesticide urine levels were reduced by 95 percent; clothianidin pesticide levels by 83 percent; and chlorpyrifos pesticide levels by 60 percent.

Dance to Improve Quality of Life With Dementia Older people with dementia, often viewed as being passive and immobile, responded to simple dance movement lessons with visible humor and imagination and reported a higher quality of life after six sessions, say researchers from New Zealand’s University of Otago. The 22 participants between the ages of early 60s and mid-90s had dementia ranging from mild to advanced. They took 10 weekly classes in which the music was “reminiscent” and the movement routines were intuitively easy. “Positive responses such as memory recalling, spontaneous dancing and joking with each other were observed in every session,” reports lead author Ting Choo.

Hibiscus rosa-sinensis is much more than a brilliant scarlet tropical flower: New laboratory research from Canada’s University of Windsor found that a hibiscus flower extract selectively kills off triple-negative breast cancer cells. This is one of the most difficult to treat types that affects 15 to 20 percent of breast cancer patients. Hibiscus is particularly effective when combined with chemotherapy, researchers say, and works as well with very low doses of the chemicals as with higher doses. The flower’s low toxicity and precise targeting of cancer cells also offers hope for long-term treatment. Previous studies have shown hibiscus to be effective on prostate cancer, leukemia, gastric cancer and human squamous cell carcinoma.

Caffeine has been the subject of controversy among the one in six adults worldwide that suffer from periodic migraines: Some say it triggers symptoms, while others report it wards them off. A new study from Harvard and two other teaching hospitals of 98 migraine sufferers used six weeks of daily journals to investigate the link and found that drinking up to two servings of caffeinated beverages a day had little effect, but three or more raised the odds of a headache that day or the next. Among people that rarely drank such beverages, even one or two servings increased the odds of having a headache that day. A serving was defined as eight ounces or one cup of caffeinated coffee, six ounces of tea, a 12-ounce can of soda or a twoounce can of an energy drink.

Try Acupuncture for Pain-Free Sleep Chronic pain, affecting 10 to 25 percent of adults, disturbs sleep for two-thirds of them, increasing the risk of depression and aggravating pain symptoms. Chinese researchers analyzed nine studies of 944 chronic-pain patients and found that acupuncture treatments were significantly better than drugs at helping patients sleep. It also improved their quality of sleep as self-measured by the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index and lowered their scores of perceived pain.

Sugar-sweetened drinks, already linked to weight gain, diabetes and heart disease, carry another risk: nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). In a meta-review published in the European Journal of Nutrition, Iranian researchers analyzed six high-quality studies that included 6,326 men and women and 1,361 cases of NAFLD. They found those that drank the most sugary drinks had a 40 percent higher risk of developing the disease compared to those that consumed the least. Sugary drinks include soda, cola, tonic, fruit punch, lemonade, sweetened, powdered drinks, and sports and energy drinks.

California Bans Fur Trapping

California has enacted a ban on fur trapping for animal pelts, making it the first state to outlaw a centuries-old livelihood that was intertwined with the rise of the Western frontier. The Wildlife Protection Act of 2019 prohibits commercial and recreational trapping on both public and private lands. Legislators are considering proposals to ban the sale of all fur products, including fur coats, and to outlaw the use of animals in any circus in the state, with the exception of domesticated horses, dogs and cats. 20

The nonprofit MomsAcrossAmerica.org (MAA) has launched its Moms Across America Gold Standard, a multi-tiered verification program for food, beverages and supplements that creates a simple, trustworthy resource for consumers while encouraging best practices by suppliers. It will be awarded to those brands that have achieved superior levels of organic practices and ecofriendly procedures, and is intended to make it simple for people to choose the healthiest products and use their wallets to take a stand against unhealthy alternatives and unethical business practices. The standard also provides a path for companies that know better and do better to prosper by shifting the buying power of millions of dedicated mothers behind their products.

Methane Matters

Fracking Linked to Global Warming

As methane concentrations increase in the atmosphere, evidence points to shale oil and gas as the probable source, but the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has taken steps to stop regulating it. New Cornell University research published in Biogeosciences, a journal of the European Geosciences Union, suggests that the methane released by high-volume hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, has different characteristics than the methane from conventional natural gas and other fossil fuels such as coal. About two-thirds of all new gas production over the last decade has been shale gas produced in the U.S. and Canada, says the paper’s author, Robert Howarth, a professor of ecology and environmental biology: “If we can stop pouring methane into the atmosphere, it will dissipate. It goes away pretty quickly compared to carbon dioxide. It’s the low-hanging fruit to slow global warming.”

Moms Launch Eco-Friendly Certification

In a northern India district, regulators require that applicants for gun licenses, in addition to normal background checks, must plant 10 trees and submit selfies as photographic evidence of having done so. To mark World Environment Day in June, Chander Gaind, the deputy commissioner of the district of Ferozepur in Punjab State, had an idea. “I thought about how much Punjabi people love guns,” he says. “We receive hundreds of applications for gun licenses from this district every year. Maybe I could get them to love caring for the environment, too.” India has more than 3.3 million active gun licenses. Tajinder Singh, 47, a farmer in the district, says he wants to protect himself from wild animals and bands of armed robbers.

Species Setback

Kool-Kats

The U.S. Department of the Interior is effecting significant changes that weaken how the Endangered Species Act is implemented, a move critics fear will allow for more oil and gas drilling on land that is currently habitat-protected, and will limit how much regulators consider the impacts of the climate crisis. The changes affect how the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration consider whether species qualify for protections, as well as how the agencies determine what habitats deserve special protections. It could make it more difficult to factor in the impact of climate change on species.

Myriad companies are pledging to make their products and packaging more sustainable, including the multinational food and drink giant Nestlé, which announced in January that it is committed to using 100 percent recyclable packaging for its candy by 2025. Miniature KitKat chocolate bars from its Japan confectionery branch will be wrapped in paper instead of plastic, with instructions for how to fashion it, post-snack, into the iconic origami crane, a traditional Japanese messenger of thoughts and wishes. Nestlé hopes that this will guarantee the paper remains in use longer rather than be disposed of immediately.

Sea ice along northern Alaska disappeared far earlier than normal this spring, alarming coastal residents that rely on wildlife and fish. The ice melted as a result of exceptionally warm water temperatures extending far out into the ocean. The last five years have produced the warmest sea-surface temperatures on record in the region, contributing to record low sea ice levels.

Phoenix, which had 128 days at or above 100 degrees Fahrenheit last year, is one of the hottest and fastestwarming cities in the U.S., and most American cities are expected to drastically heat up in the next decades with heat waves and tripledigit days. In the Valley of the Sun, work and play are shifting into the cooler hours. Neighborhoods are active at dawn and dusk when residents hike, jog and paddleboard. Last year, heat caused or contributed to the deaths of 182 people in Maricopa County, which includes Phoenix. Ariane Middel, a professor of urban climate at Arizona State University, says, “We are almost a living laboratory. We can test strategies and see different ways to keep adapting and mitigating. By the time it gets hot in other places, they can take what we have learned here.”

Phoenix Shifts to a Cooler Night Mode

Farmer Cannon Michael left more than 100 acres of ripe cantaloupes unharvested last year because he couldn’t sell them for enough to cover the cost of labor, packing and shipping. According to a new study from Santa Clara University, in California, about one-third of edible produce remains unharvested in the fields, where it rots and gets plowed under. Most research on food loss and food waste has focused on post-harvest, retail and consumer levels. The new study offers a far more accurate look at on-farm food loss by relying on in-field measurements. ReFED, a coalition of nonprofits, businesses and government agencies that fight food loss and food waste, estimates that 21 percent of water, 18 percent of cropland and 19 percent of fertilizer in the U.S. are dedicated to food that is never eaten.

Eco-Practices Grow on Winter Slopes

From mountain peaks to base lodges, many alpine ski resorts are working to reduce the environmental impact of their operations. Skiers will discover that sustainability is the watchword at a growing number of facilities, with a focus on reducing energy usage and cutting back on waste. In Vermont, Killington Resort uses four offsite solar farms, as well as the AllEarth Solar tracking system that rotates panels using GPS technology to produce enough energy to run all the lifts for the resort and nearby Pico Mountain for the entire season (Killington.com). To prepare for this winter, Bromley Mountain upgraded its snowmaking system with state-of-theart, variable-frequency drive motors to conserve energy. Stratton Mountain Resort will now offer drinking straws by request only and feature a bamboo option; retail shops have switched to bags made of 100 percent recycled paper.

Aspen Snowmass, in Colorado, has begun using a dirtbased pipe at its Buttermilk section to reduce snowmaking, saving more than $15,000 in electricity and 4 million gallons of water each year. Winter Park has installed a small wind turbine at the top of Parsenn Bowl to power its lift shack there. Arapahoe Basin, Copper Mountain and Purgatory are among the many resorts in the state that offer carpooling incentives for skiers (ColoradoSki.com). After pledging in January to expand on energyefficient operations, seven state ski trade associations—Ski Vermont, Colorado Ski Country USA, Ski Utah, Ski California, Ski Areas of New York, Ski New Mexico and the Pacific Northwest Ski Areas Association—along with 70-plus other organizations and companies of the Outdoor Business Climate Partnership gathered on Capitol Hill in May to “advocate for immediate and bipartisan climate action, specifically, putting a price on carbon” (SnowSports.org). Families can forego the expenses, travel time and Earth impacts of alpine skiing by turning to the cross-country version. A few inches of snow and strapping on longer, thinner skis can transform a flat or gently hilly park, wooded trail or spacious backyard into a quiet, serene, eco-playground. “This low-impact exercise delivers amazing cardiovascular benefits, works all the major muscle groups, challenges your balance, keeps your joints healthy and is good for your mental health,” according to CrossCountrySkiColorado.com.

CHASING ZZZZZs How to Put Insomnia to Rest

Ljupco Smokovski/Shutterstock.com

~Cindy Davies

T

ossing and turning most of the night while obsessing about the need for sleep is a torture we all go through every now and then, but for the 40 percent of Americans dealing with current or chronic insomnia, it can be a regular nightmare. In fact, 50 to 70 million adults in the U.S. suffer from some form of sleep disorder, according to the American Sleep Association. The causes are multi-faceted: stress, pharmaceutical side effects, hormonal imbalances, chronic pain, anxiety and too much caffeine all fuel the insomnia loop. Add to that the overstimulation from 24/7 technology, social pressures and unresolved emotional pain, and it’s easy to see why long, hard, sleepless nights have become a worldwide epidemic. The effects are profound. Compromised sleep not only leads to decreased quality of life, malnourished relationships, a heightened risk of accidents and inferior job performance, but also lowered immunity and chronic inflammation, raising the odds of heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, weight gain and diabetes. About 90 percent of people diagnosed with depression also experience sleep deprivation, and many antidepressant medications can disrupt the ability to fall asleep and dream. However, a number of natural and ho24

listic approaches can provide lasting results without undesirable side effects. Along with tried-and-true methods like acupuncture, therapeutic massage and changes in diet and exercise, the National Sleep Foundation recommends mindful breathing and meditation. New options are emerging to help foster quality sleep, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), non-psychoactive CBD oil and lifestyle changes supporting a healthy circadian rhythm.

Body and Mind, a Tangled Web

Psychological, emotional and physical health all play a role in our ability—or inability—to get a good night’s rest. “Not sleeping well is a sign of a deeper imbalance that needs to be addressed. So, if we’re masking the problem with medication, the underlying cause remains unaddressed,” says Elina Winnel, a sleep coach who works online with clients at TheSleepExpert.com. “Insomnia is a complex issue that has psychological components, but is also affected by deeper mechanisms, including an imbalance between the two main branches of the autonomic nervous system.” The intricate connection between emotion and sleep-robbing stress hormones explains why insomniacs are often caught in an undertow of racing thoughts and preoc-

cupations. Says Winnel, “Stress has become the norm, and most people don’t even realize they’re in that state. This produces stress hormones and can prevent the natural process of sleep from occurring.” Stress also depletes vitamin B and magnesium levels necessary for quality sleep, she adds. Cindy Davies, owner of the Holistic Sleep Center, in Ferndale, Michigan, has similar views on the role emotion plays in troubled sleep patterns. “We’re chronically suppressing our feelings throughout the day. Our inability to address these emotions culminates in a night spent in bed awake with fears and worries,” she says. “Pushing ourselves to the point of exhaustion can help defend ourselves against dealing with feelings or memories, but impairs our ability to sleep restfully or restoratively.”

Resetting Inherent Rhythms

Circadian rhythm, our biological clock, is a cellular marvel that is affected by light and internal changes in temperature. Stephanie Silberman, Ph.D., a licensed psychologist in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, and Fellow of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, explains that it’s helpful to have a circadian rhythm aligned with societal norms so that we’re sleepy at bedtime and active during daylight hours. “When a person’s circadian rhythm is delayed, they will have trouble

falling asleep at a regular bedtime, and when it’s advanced, experience sleepiness too early in the evening and then [have] early morning awakenings.” Circadian rhythm regulates digestion, cellular repair, hormones and many other functions. It also slows down the metabolism during night hours, helping us to stay asleep. “The circadian rhythm can be disrupted by many factors, including traveling to a different time zone, shift work and exposure to blue light late at night while binge-watching your favorite series,” says Winnel. Our natural hormonal rhythms are wired to release melatonin at certain times,

allowing us to rest frequently during the day. Davies explains that an adult’s body is designed for periods of rest every 90 minutes. “Most people don’t have the opportunity to rest every 90 minutes, but if we were able to, we’d be going to bed in a state of rest, instead of exhaustion,” she says. Our bodies start producing melatonin around 9 p.m., when we should already be winding down, but too often we push ourselves to stay up to watch TV or have “me-time”, says Davies. “In reality, going to bed is the best me-time we can have.” Herbalist and licensed psychotherapist Jenn J. Allen, in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, adds, “People spend up to 10 hours a day on

Sleep Tips

Ljupco Smokovski/Shutterstock.com

For healthy circadian rhythm and melatonin cycles, try:

4 Shutting off all screen devices, including the TV, two hours before going to bed 4 Going to bed when you get that 9 p.m. slump and just taping a favorite show 4 Walking barefoot and feeling the earth 4 Spending quality time outside in sunlight, preferably in a natural setting 4 Taking nourishing baths with natural soaps, lavender essential oil or herbs 4 Designating certain time slots to not answer the phone or answer emails 4 Exercising regularly and not within three hours of bedtime 4 Taking a break from work every 90 minutes for two minutes of slow, deep breathing 4 Breaking the caffeine habit by replacing coffee and tea with healthier alternatives

For emotional components of insomnia, try:

4 Going on a “worry fast” for five or 10 minutes, and then practice doing it for an hour or a full day 4 Reserving time with loved ones for in-person conversations and get-togethers 4 Checking in with yourself and acknowledging all emotions and fears without judgment 4 Setting aside ambitions for a day to recharge 4 Sleeping in without guilt—shopping and running errands can wait 4 Choosing not to compare your life with others

electronic devices, which directly impacts melatonin production and stimulates the fight-or-flight response system in the brain.”

Two Sides of Every Brain

Smartphones and social media have piled even more on our plate, even if we enjoy them. “We’re expected to be constantly ‘on’ and reachable 24/7,” observes Winnel. “This leads to an excessive reliance on our sympathetic nervous system and difficulty switching brainwave states from beta—associated with alertness—to theta and delta, which we experience during sleep. Through practice and specific exercises, it can become easier for us to reach the state of mind needed to nod off.” To support healthier sleep patterns, Winnel emphasizes the importance of using both hemispheres of the brain while awake. “Particularly in our professional lives, logical and rational processes are rewarded, while creativity is seen as optional. This can cause a chronic imbalance in the way we use the two hemispheres of our brain. Optimal sleep requires equalized functioning in the neurological structures that are unique to each hemisphere.” Mindful breathing and alternate-nostril yogic breathwork can also bring harmony to both hemispheres of the brain and promote deep relaxation.

Chronic pain can also prevent sound sleep. Allen stresses, “It’s important to understand what is actually causing pain and what type of pain it is. Some chronic pain comes from postural issues or injuries, so massage, chiropractic or gentle movement like yoga can help to drastically reduce the intensity of pain.” Identifying nutritional deficiencies and supporting the nervous system is also key. “Plants work both physiologically and energetically. Gentle nervine herbs like oats or chamomile can help to soothe the nervous system, and are effective for children and teens. Adaptogenic plants are known historically for helping the body to resist physical, chemical or biological stresses. Tulsi and ashwagandha, when taken consistently, can be useful in helping adults to combat stress,” Allen says, reminding us to also check with November 2019 25


Learning New Tricks

Many sleep-seeking people are reaping the benefits from cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I). The American College

People spend up to 10 hours a day on electronic devices, which directly impacts melatonin production and stimulates the fight-or-flight response system in the brain. ~Jenn J. Allen of Physicians recommends it as the firstline therapy for insomnia ahead of medication, citing that it improves sleep and daytime functioning in 70 to 80 percent of treated persons, often without supplemental

medication. A meta-analysis published in The Journal of the American Medical Association in 2015 shows that CBT-I can resolve insomnia for 35 percent of people with sleeplessness linked to existing medical and psychiatric conditions such as fibromyalgia or PTSD. CBT-I helps to change long-held patterns. “CBT includes keeping sleep logs, improving sleep hygiene, learning ways to decrease anxiety and how to associate the bed as a place where we sleep well, instead of the maladaptive thinking that it’s a place to toss and turn,” says Silberman. CBT can also be helpful for chronic pain and other physical problems when underlying issues are treated in conjunction. A good night’s rest is indeed possible. Davies says, “In order to really change our ability to sleep, we need a complete cultural mindset shift that prioritizes sleep and our need to rest.” Marlaina Donato is the author of several books and a composer.

a healthcare professional to avoid contraindications. Going for that extra cup of coffee during the day or pouring a drink or two in the evening are habits that only exacerbate sleep issues. “Caffeine suppresses our body’s ability to feel tired, not by giving us energy, but by increasing the production of adrenaline and suppressing the production of melatonin. Alcohol, like some prescription medications, can interfere with our ability to fall asleep, sleep deeply and experience dreaming states,” cautions Davies. CBD oil derived from the cannabis plant is an effective pain-reducer and helps to regulate healthy sleep patterns. Cannabidiol (CBD), which does not contain THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the chemical substance in marijuana responsible for inducing a high, is available as capsules, inhalers and tinctures.

ANTIQUES RISING Discovering the Green in ‘Brown’ Furniture

F

by Yvette C. Hammett

ast food and fast fashion are common in this amped-up world. There’s also fast furniture—the kind that often comes in a box, assembly required. It’s made of particle board held together by toxic chemicals; it is often flimsy and it’s consuming forests at an alarming rate. But millennials love it. That’s why they’re sometimes called the IKEA generation. “Your grandmother’s big sideboard and armoire are hard to sell,” says Todd Merrill, owner of the Todd Merrill Studio, a furniture and design gallery in New York City. “We have changed the way we live. Our houses are laid out differently—no more formal dining rooms. I think people are less inventive about how to repurpose, reuse and restore.” Grandma’s treasures, once passed down for generations, are largely passé. The new word for antiques is “brown furniture”; prices have plummeted 60 to 80 percent in two decades, say industry experts. The youngsters want no part of them, even though they are hand crafted out of solid wood extracted from old-growth forests that took centuries to mature. Large retail chains cater to strong

consumer demand for disposable furniture, and it is driving a great deal of deforestation, according to the Alliance of Leading Environmental Researchers & Thinkers (ALERT). IKEA’s own figures show that it uses 1 percent of the world’s commercial wood supply a year to manufacture these throwaway pieces. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency reports that 9,690 tons of furniture—both fast and slow—ended up in the nation’s landfills in 2015, the latest year for which statistics have been published. The trend is at odds with millennials’ notable environmental sensibilities—and they do put a premium on authentic, handmade items and companies with social impact—so experts say the tide may be turning. Like the growing Slow Food movement, “slow” furniture enjoys a sense of character and provenance that doesn’t come in a box. When Merrill opened his furniture studio in 2000, it consisted of half pristine antiques and half mid-century modern furniture. He quickly saw a trend of people snapping up the mid-century and leaving the handcrafted antiques behind. “I pulled things out of trash heaps in the Upper East

Side. People came in and started snatching up all the vintage modern.” Merrill’s vintage offerings now focus on mid-century modern and upcycled, repurposed furnishings, something the millennials have taken to. The kids will continue to come around, he says. “If you go around Brooklyn, people are reusing and recycling antique furniture. With the antique market hitting bottom, it is hard to ignore it. As it bottoms out, kids are going to come back to these things.” There can be a cool factor in reusing something that is old, unique and odd, he added. “Oddity and ugliness is kind of in fashion right now.” Alex Geriner, of Doorman Designs, in New Orleans, began upcycling out of necessity. He had little money to furnish his 19thcentury apartment. His need quickly became a business when the furnishings he created out of old wood pieces began flying out the door. “I think for millennials—I am a millennial—they want something with a story tied to it, some sort of bigger meaning. My generation is all about experiences. If they can say, ‘I found this in a dumpster’ or ‘in a roadside flea market,’ any story is an investment for millennials.” Terry Gorsuch, whose side business in Dolores, Colorado, Rustique ReInvintage, involves salvaging old theater chairs, church pews and other novel items, upcycling them and selling them for a tidy profit, says, “There is nothing special about a coffee table from IKEA. All our pieces have a story. They’re from a 1936 theater or an 1895 Grange Hall where farmers and ranchers met.” Gorsuch says he already has some “hipster” millennials buying items like old lockers or other odd pieces that they mix and match. “When you take something and put it back to use, you get a feeling of satisfaction,” he says. “The informality of today allows for the mix-and-match thing,” Merrill says. “Take an old door and repurpose it … Put it up in your house or upcycle it into a table. “What we are missing in our homes is character,” he says. “Repurposing is a very good thing to do.”

A

long with annual flu season warnings, there’s more news than usual on the dangers of microbes and transmittable diseases, including recent domestic measles outbreaks and the rise of resistant bacteria from the improper use of antibiotics. In his latest book released earlier this year, More Deadly than War: The Hidden History of the Spanish Flu and the First World War, Kenneth C. Davis describes the worldwide epidemic that killed millions only a century ago and warns of a potential relapse. Davis is also the author of In the Shadow of Liberty, an American Library Association Notable Book and a finalist for the Youth Adult Library Service Association Award for Excellence in Nonfiction. His New York Times bestselling and critically acclaimed Don’t Know Much About book series for both adults and children makes many, sometimes esoteric facts and figures on history, The Bible, the universe, geography and other subjects come alive. Davis is a TED-Ed educator whose lectures are globally available online.

napalmbeach.com

What inspired you to tackle this deadly subject?

My editor had the flu and mentioned that her grandmother died of the Spanish Flu. I said that’s a fascinating subject. She said if you ever want to write about it, I’d love to know, and it was around the time that I was beginning to think about the 100th anniversary of the flu and the end of World War I. These were two extraordinary moments in modern human history that many people don’t understand.

What makes the Spanish Flu epidemic relevant today?

It was the most extraordinary pandemic in modern times, the worst since the Black Plague. So many aspects of the story can teach us lessons, like the role of propaganda that created the circumstances that allowed the flu to flourish, politicians ignoring sound science. In Philadelphia in September of 1918, the health commissioner was warned not to allow a big parade that was meant to sell war bonds. He did, and 200,000 people crowded the streets. Two days later, there was not a hospital bed left in the city. It was that sudden and explosive gathering of mass numbers of people that lit

the fuse for a tremendous flu bomb to explode. It’s important to understand the connection between science and history. Often, we treat history as a collection of dates, battles and speeches, and we don’t connect with what was going in the scientific and medical world, but these things are always closely linked together. Disease has always been more deadly than war, and that makes it more relevant than ever, because there are crises and conflict zones all over the world today. The situation is ripe for that explosion of another infectious disease.

Should we take for granted that some health risks of the past have been totally eradicated via modern medicine?

photo by Nina Subin

We should not. It’s dangerous to be complacent. All too often, there’s a cost in disregarding sound medical advice—what we know to be true—because we might have heard something else, and this is truer than ever with social media. The nature of the flu virus, of infectious diseases, is that they change, evolve and mutate rapidly like the Spanish Flu did.

Why do you write, “Another pandemic is a distinct possibility”?

Such pandemic diseases are often diseases of crowds. We live in a world that’s more crowded, where high-speed transportation is much more readily capable of spreading a pandemic. When we have a world in which scientific risks and information is disregarded, that’s when we have the possibility of another pandemic. Then there’s climate change. We are living in a world that’s wetter and warmer. This breeds the possibilities for more disease. When we weaken guardrails, when we don’t fund science and disease prevention properly, we take great risks.

What do you think about the stronger enforcement of vaccinations because of measles outbreaks?

We’ve had the largest outbreak of measles in decades, and it’s a disease we thought we had pretty much defeated a long time ago. But because of the spread of misinformation, rumors and unverified scientific medical information, we have a dangerous outbreak of measles in this country. People have traveled to places where there were no vaccinations, then return home. This is a clear and very present danger of the “anti-vaxx” movement, as it’s called. It ignores long-established, peer-reviewed science over decades and unfortunately, we are in a time when someone with a megaphone or microphone or another platform can reach a lot of people with a lot of very dangerous information. We ignore sound science at great peril. Randy Kambic, of Estero, Florida, is a freelance writer and editor.

The Happy Thyroid Seven Ways to Keep It Humming by Ronica O’Hara

M

uch of our day-to-day well-being—how energetic we feel, how clear our thinking is and how our body processes food—is governed by the activity of the butterfly-shaped, thumbsized thyroid gland at the base of the throat. When it’s working as it should, life is good. However, about one in eight Americans suffers from a malfunctioning thyroid, and women are five to eight times more likely than men to face the consequences. It’s a delicate balancing act. A thyroid that produces too few hormones makes us feel sluggish and constipated. We gain weight easily, have muscle cramps and experience heavy periods. Hypothyroidism, as it’s called, is linked to chronic fatigue syndrome, infertility and autism in newborns. A 2013 study published in Annals of Neurology found that pregnant women deficient in thyroid hormone are four times more likely than healthy women to produce a child with autism. If the thyroid produces too many 32

Palm Beach Edition

hormones, we suffer from hyperthyroidism with a racing heart, irritability, light periods, unexplained weight loss and insomnia; it can lead to hardening of the arteries and heart failure later in life, according to a study in Circulation Research. The good news is that there are simple and effective strategies that can optimize thyroid function and avoid these potential health setbacks, say experts. Their recommendations:

1

Keep up mineral levels. The

thyroid needs iodine to churn out hormones, and usually iodized salt or sea salt with natural iodine can supply most of our daily needs of 150 micrograms. Sardines, shrimp, seaweed, yogurt, eggs and capers are also rich in iodine. However, too much of a good thing can tip the balance in the other direction, so practice moderation with super-charged iodine foods like cranberries: A four-ounce serving contains twice the daily requirement. In addition, our

percent of the conversion of inactive thyroid hormone (T4) into active hormone (T3) takes place in our gut, which makes “good” bacteria critically important. Andrea Beaman, a New York City health coach and author of Happy Healthy Thyroid: The Essential Steps to Healing Naturally, recommends probiotics like cultured vegetables, kimchi, sauerkraut and sourdough bread, as well as prebiotics like root vegetables, plantain, burdock and dandelion root.

3

Filter drinking water. “Fluoride and chlorine are elements that can block the absorption of iodine into the thyroid,” says Elizabeth Boham, M.D., a functional medicine doctor at the UltraWellness Center, in Lenox, Massachusetts. A reverse-osmosis filter or a high-end pitcher filter will remove chlorine, as well as fluoride, which British researchers have linked to a 30 percent higher rate of hypothyroidism.

4

Detox cosmetics. Phthalates are endocrine-disrupting chemicals found in cosmetics, nail polish and shampoos; they are also in plastic toys, and 3-year-old girls exposed to phthalates have shown depressed thyroid function, Columbia University scientists report. Research cosmetics and find toxin-free alternatives at the Environmental Working Group Skin Deep Cosmetics Database. (ewg.org/ skindeep).

Poses such as plow pose, fish pose, boat pose and cobra can improve blood circulation to the thyroid gland, which is imperative for its health.

healing ways

Wake up easy. About 85 percent of thyroid diseases

involve an underactive thyroid, says Beaman, adding that it is often the body’s pushback against frenzied, stressful lifestyles: “The thyroid is literally slowing down—our body is saying, ‘Slow, slow, go slow.’” For a low-key start to the day, she suggests not using an alarm clock if possible, and then doing some long, slow stretching and deep breathing. “It takes just five minutes, and you’re starting the day not in fight-orflight mode, but in a fully relaxed and fully oxygenated body.”

6

Talk it out. In Eastern philosophy, the thyroid in the throat is located at the fifth chakra, the energy center of expression and communication, Beaman says. If we find ourselves either regularly shouting or choking back our words, “it helps, if you want to support your thyroid on a deep emotional level, to express yourself somehow, some way, to someone somewhere,” such as to a therapist, family member or good friend.

7

Do yoga asanas. “Poses such as plow pose, fish pose,

boat pose and cobra can improve blood circulation to the thyroid gland, which is imperative for its health,” says Stacy Thewis, a registered nurse, certified wellness coach and gut-brain expert in Mellen, Wisconsin. In a study in the Journal of Complementary and Integrative Medicine, 22 women with hypothyroidism that practiced yoga for six months needed significantly less thyroid medication. Ronica A.

Help for a Troubled Thyroid

o verify a possible thyroid condition, consult a doctor, endocrinologist, functional medicine doctor or naturopathic doctor. Ask for a range of tests, not only the standard thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) test, but also free T4, free T3, thyroid antibodies for autoimmune reactions, and thyroid-releasing hormone (TRH) tests for a full picture. The standard pharmaceutical approach for hypothyroidism, the most common condition, is the synthetic hormone levothyroxine (Levoxyl, Synthroid, Unithroid) that boosts T4 production; but it can cause depression and weight gain, researchers at Chicago-based Rush University Medical Center report in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism. Ask also about Armour Thyroid, derived from animal thyroids, that contains both T3 and T4, and is often preferred by functional medicine doctors. Other testing can uncover a reaction to gluten, which is often linked to thyroid dysfunction. “For many with thyroid issues, gluten can provoke an autoimmune response via celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitivity,” says registered dietitian nutritionist and health coach Amanda Wikan, of Petaluma, California. If a celiac test is negative, she suggests trying a six-week, gluten-free diet and watching afterward for any signs of non-celiac sensitivity such as headaches, bloating, gas or brain fog.

ZENFUL EATING Mindful Meals in Quiet Gratitude by April Thompson

I

n Zen monasteries, the head cook (known as the tenzo) is one of the most important positions a monk can hold; Eihei Dogen, founder of Soto Zen, one of the longest-established sects of Buddhism, said this is “because the position requires wholehearted practice.” In the 13th-century volume Instructions for the Zen Cook, Dogen wrote, “In preparing food, it is essential to be sincere and to respect each ingredient, regardless of how coarse or fine.” Rituals around food are an important element of Buddhism, as with many spiritual traditions. But we don’t have to be a Buddhist or a practiced meditator to learn how to cook more mindfully, enjoy meals more fully and eat in better balance. “Cooking can be a meditation. We cook with all our senses: We taste, touch and listen to determine if the pan is hot enough. You just have to be mindful,” says Jean-Philippe Cyr, author of The Buddhist Chef: 100 Simple, Feel-Good Vegan Recipes. “Cooking is an act of love and generosity, so cooking should be done with care—taking the time to consider the ingredients and overall flavors of the meal, storing the vegetables properly, paying attention while you chop. These things are the foundation of a great meal,” says

Palm Beach Edition

Gesshin Claire Greenwood, an ordained Zen priest in San Francisco. Greenwood trained in Buddhist monasteries in Japan for more than five years, experiences she draws from in her recent memoir and cookbook Just Enough: Vegan Recipes and Stories from Japan’s Buddhist Temples. While vegetarianism is encouraged in all schools of Buddhism and most monasteries abstain from meat, it is not a strict requirement. Cyr, a vegan and practicing Buddhist of 20 years, takes seriously the concept of ahimsa, or “do no harm”, as a chef. “Veganism and Buddhism share the common value of compassion— compassion towards animals, as well as the Earth. Climate change caused by meat consumption causes a lot of harm, too,” says Cyr, of rural Quebec, Canada. The “middle way” is an important Buddhist principle in the kitchen— striking the balance between indulgence and deprivation—the “just enough” in Greenwood’s cookbook title. “It’s important to use enough salt so that the food tastes good, but not so much that it’s overpowering. When we shop for food or eat a meal, we can also pay attention to when we’ve had enough,” she says.

napalmbeach.com

Mindful eating can open up a beautiful new relationship to food, says Jan Chozen Bays, a Zen Buddhist priest and co-abbot of Great Vow Zen Monastery, in Clatskanie, Oregon. “This country is in an epidemic of out-of-balance eating. People are stressed out and fearful about eating, but cooking and eating should be inherently pleasurable human activities,” says Bays, the author of Mindful Eating: A Guide to Rediscovering a Healthy and Joyful Relationship with Food. “In Zen practice, mindful rituals help us learn to be present and peaceful during meals.” Mindful eating is not about restrictions, but rather about curiosity and investigation—an adventure for the senses, says Bays. “Research shows that diets don’t work, as they rely on external sources rather than helping you to go inward and tap into the innate wisdom of your body.”

Tuning In at Mealtime Rushing through meals mindlessly, we’ve become deaf to our body’s own signals of satiety, says Bays. “Go to the supermarket when you’re hungry, and head to the perimeter where the real food is and stop and ask your body, ‘Would you like oranges? Would broccoli be good for us?’ Tune into your cellular hunger,” she says. At the Great Vow Zen Monastery, the first morning meal is conducted in silence, along “with a prayer to bring gratitude for the food and to all living beings whose life flows to us in our food,” says Bays, adding that research shows ceremonies and moments of reflection lead to more

mindful, healthy eating. “Instead of talking on the phone, try cooking in silence. Drawing your awareness to details like the smell of basil, the color of tomato and the touch of the spoon brings so much richness to the act of cooking,” says Bays. Such a focus leads to a sense of appreciation for the ingredients of meals and life, says Myoju Erin Merk, a priest at the San Francisco Zen Center. “Making a meal is an active extension of our ‘sitting’ (meditation) practice.”

The Zen of Food

H

ere are a few simple tips from Buddhist priests and cooks on making mealtime more mindful. Have a mid-meal gut check, suggests Jan Chozen Bays. “When your stomach feels three-quarters full, have a conversation with a friend or have something to drink before continuing to eat. Often you will find after 20 minutes you are actually full,” says the author and priest. Myoju Erin Merk, a priest at the San Francisco Zen Center, suggests setting a phone timer in the kitchen to mark it as a practice time to tune into the senses. “Try to slow down and notice what’s happening as you cook. Try to stay with the sensory experience and not judge everything, like whether the carrot is cut right. It can be a very relaxing and peaceful way to work in the kitchen.” Make the first few sips or bites of a meal mindful, spending the first few moments in silence if possible, says Bays. “Working quietly with that pile of carrots or onions, you have space to focus on just one task,” adds Merk. Incorporating all of the five tastes of Buddhism—salty, sweet, sour, bitter and umami (savory)—is another way to bring meals in balance, according to author and priest Gesshin Claire Greenwood. “Having all of these flavors represented makes a meal feel balanced and satisfying.”

Pumpkin seeds Microgreens

Buddha Bowl Cookbook author Jean-Phillippe Cyr says, “I love bowl recipes: they’re generous and colorful, and they let us get creative. Layer grains or cereals, vegetables, legumes and dressing, and voilà! That’s all there is to it.” Pumpkin seeds are an incredible source of protein, and tahini contains more protein than milk. Healthy cooks will be sure to keep this tahini dressing recipe close, because they can use it in everything. Yields one bowl 1 sweet potato, peeled and diced 2 dried figs, sliced 2 Tbsp olive oil Salt, to taste 1½ cups cooked quinoa ¼ cup frozen shelled edamame, cooked

Preheat the oven to 350° F. Place the sweet potato and figs in a baking dish. Drizzle with oil, then season with salt and bake for 30 minutes. Place the ginger, garlic and salt in a mortar (preferred) or blender, then mash the ingredients together. Transfer to a bowl and add the tahini, soy sauce, lemon juice, maple syrup and oil. Stir to combine. Place the sweet potatoes and figs in a large serving bowl. Add the quinoa and edamame. Drizzle with the dressing and garnish. Serve immediately. Tip: For those that can’t digest raw garlic, don’t use it, or cook it before adding it to the dressing.

Click and Sweat Virtual Workouts Change the Game

W

by Julie Peterson

elcome to the digital age, where budding gym rats, former couch potatoes and schedule-challenged fitness freaks are finding new ways to get in shape. These days, virtually anyone with a smartphone or Wi-Fi connection can connect with a yoga video, a spin class or any number of personal exercise experiences. Some folks are wearing devices that calculate distance and monitor bodily functions—then post it all to social media. Private trainers are offering online workout routines with motivational emails and text messages, while some gyms include online training as an add-on to membership or leverage technology to provide classes to consumers globally. Virtual fitness is growing in leaps and bounds. The use of health and fitness apps has more than tripled since 2014, and three-quarters of active users open their apps at least twice a week, according to Flurry Analytics. Yet, it’s not for everyone. Erin Nitschke, Ed.D., of Cheyenne, Wyoming, the director of educational partnerships and programs at the National Federa-

napalmbeach.com

tion of Professional Trainers, is monitoring the upsurge in virtual fitness and believes it will take time to perfect the options. “While virtual training may be a best practice for a certain population of users, it may be a barrier to others,” she says.

Accessible, Flexible and Affordable The convenience and affordability of virtual training has some clients thriving on their ability to marry technological tools to fitness goals. They can log in anytime, anywhere, even while travelling; take a variety of classes from famous trainers for a fraction of the cost of in-person sessions and receive emails or texts that provide encouragement to reach the next level. For those new to exercising, virtual training eases self-consciousness. It’s an opportunity to learn the basics and begin the process of toning up at home before venturing into an unfamiliar environment where everyone seems to know what they’re doing. In this respect, virtual training can serve as a gateway to establishing a fitness routine that

eventually leads to the local gym. “One of the most frequent reasons people cite for not maintaining a regular exercise habit is lack of time,” says American Council on Exercise President and Chief Science Officer Cedric Bryant, Ph.D., of Redmond, Washington. He points out that virtual tools and devices may help eliminate some of those time barriers, allowing people to get quality workouts.

The Real Deal But some people go to the gym or attend fitness classes because they enjoy the social connection more than the sweat. Nitschke says that social support can be a predictor of success, so it’s possible that virtual training can have a negative impact. Bryant agrees. “There are different fitness personality types, and some need the live and in-person experience.” Bryant points out that gyms and trainers often request health information and fitness goals beforehand to provide clients

a more customized program. In-person instruction also has the benefit of immediate feedback to ensure safe, effective and proper technique. Erika Hetzel, a Pilates instructor and personal trainer in Dane County, Wisconsin, believes that virtual workouts are fine for people that have attended classes enough to know the exercises and have good body awareness. “For beginners, hands-on cues and modifications are important, especially if there are any contraindications for exercise.” She carefully monitors her clients for form and doesn’t plan to offer virtual training because it’s impossible to give clients bodily adjustments. “It leaves trainees at risk of not getting full benefit or getting hurt,” Hetzel says. “An effective workout is about the quality of the movements.” Bryant says that instructor interaction is a plus; however, the best virtual workouts give detailed instruction and regression or progression of

all moves, allowing participants to choose an appropriate intensity level.

Making a Virtual Connection Logging in with a high-speed internet connection, gathering required equipment in advance and possessing self-motivation might prevent getting discouraged. However, overconfidence can lead to injury, so being fully aware of limitations is essential before taking a dive off the recliner directly into a series of lunges. For social butterflies, a real-live friend to login with may be necessary to make virtual training fun. Fitness training may be forever changed by technology, but Nitschke says it remains to be seen if fitness professionals can respond to individual learning styles to foster success and elevate the fitness client’s virtual experience.

rateful living is the awareness that we stand on holy ground—always— in touch with mystery. Jewish sages interpret the words of Genesis 3:5 in a way that is of great relevance to grateful living. “Take off your shoes; the ground on which you stand is holy ground.” The soles of your shoes are leather—dead animal skin. Take off the deadness of being-used-to-it and your live souls will feel that you are standing on holy ground, wherever you are. It is pretty evident that greed, oppression and violence have led us to a point of self-destruction. Our survival depends on a radical change; if the gratitude movement grows strong and deep enough, it may bring about this necessary change. Grateful living brings in place of greed, sharing; in place of oppression, respect; and in place of violence, peace. Who does not long for a world of sharing, mutual respect and peace? Exploitation springs from greed and a sense of scarcity. Grateful living makes us aware that there is enough for all. Thus, it leads to a sense of sufficiency and a joyful willingness to share with others. Oppression is necessary if we want to exploit others. The more power you have, the more efficiently you can exploit those

below you and protect yourself against those above you. But grateful people live with a sense of sufficiency—they need not exploit others—thus, oppression is replaced by mutual support and by equal respect for all. Violence springs from the root of fear—fear that there may not be enough for all, fear of others as potential competitors, fear of foreigners and strangers. But the grateful person is fearless. Thereby, she cuts off the very root of violence. Out of a sense-of-enough, she is willing to share, and thereby tends to eliminate the unjust distribution of wealth that creates the climate for violence. Fearlessly, she welcomes the new and strange, is enriched by differences and celebrates variety. Grateful eyes look at whatever is as if they had never seen it before and caress it as if they would never see it again. This is a most realistic attitude, for every moment is indeed unique.

his Thanksgiving, there’s something to be especially thankful for— gratitude itself. Emerging research shows gratitude to be one of the easiest, most effective ways to kickstart happiness and well-being. “The good news about gratitude is that it is one of the more growable character strengths—and it’s never too late,” says Giacomo Bono, Ph.D., an assistant professor at California State University, in Dominguez Hills, and co-author of Making Grateful Kids: The Science of Building Character. It’s also never too early to “plant” it: Even toddlers love to parrot, “Thank you.” Research by Bono and others shows kids that are grateful are happier, more engaged and studious, and less envious, depressed, materialistic and prone to violence. It can be taught: After one week of daily 30-minute lessons on gratitude, 8- to 11-year-olds wrote thank-you notes for a PTA presentation that were 80 percent longer than notes by kids that didn’t have the lessons. To instill gratefulness in a child:

“Kids are more likely to do something if they see adults around them doing it,”

says Bono. “Being specific with your words helps, too, because it shows what behavior mattered to you and why.” Adds psychologist Mary Jo Podgurski, founder and president of the Academy for Adolescent Health, in Washington, Pennsylvania: “If we express our gratitude by making eye contact, with sincerity and by providing an example of how much we are appreciative, the words are empowered. Telling the grocery clerk, ‘I really like the way you packed my berries on top. Thanks for taking the time to be careful with my purchases,’ will light up the clerk’s face.” That can translate into a child not simply saying, “Thank you” to a grandparent for birthday money, but also explaining how excited they are about the game they plan to buy with it.

Enact a small daily ritual.

“It’s also good for families to come up with gratitude rituals,” says Bono. “Everyday conversations about the good things and people we have or encounter in life, and being specific with words, helps young children understand the connection between kindness and feeling grateful better.” For writer Judy Gruen’s family in Los Angeles, this means a morning prayer:


Mandy Godbehear/Shutterstock.com

“When we wake up in the morning, the first words we say are those of gratitude that we have awakened and have the opportunity for a new day.” At dinner time, some families play “a rose, a thorn, a bud”— with each person saying what happened that day that they’re grateful for, what problems came up and what they’re looking forward to. As a bedtime ritual, Heidi McBain, a counselor and author in Flower Mound, Texas, follows a routine with her two children that includes “reading, checking in about their day—the good/bad/ugly—and at least one thing they are grateful for from their day. And I often share mine, as well!”

URBAN CHICKENS Coming Home to Roost by Julie Peterson

L

ocavores with a hankering for fresh, organic eggs produced close to home have sparked a resurgence in backyard chicken keeping; even people that don’t like omelets are getting in on the trend. It turns out that the little descendants of dinosaurs make fascinating, low-maintenance pets. “You can’t watch a chicken running across the yard and not have your mood lifted,” says Shana Cobin, who has owned chickens for four years. A veterinary staff member, she takes in rescues on her small farm in Foster, Rhode Island. Her current flock of eight chickens has room to forage with a turkey, some goats and sheep. At night, her birds sleep in a predator-proof chicken coop. As a vegan, Cobin gifts the eggs to others. “It’s gratifying to give eggs to friends and family who might otherwise buy eggs from factory farms,” says Cobin. “It’s as if I’m helping those hens, too.” Those country chickens could be city chickens—if the municipality allows. An increasing number do, with a few rules. Roosters aren’t usually allowed (think crowing at 4 a.m.); the number of hens is limited; and they can’t roam the neighborhood. Local ordinances vary widely and change frequently, so be sure to

napalmbeach.com

get the facts for each area.

Bird Benefits

Chickens are relatively simple and inexpensive to maintain. They come in a variety of sizes and colors, are easy to bond with and their entertainment value can’t be underrated. “You will enjoy watching them for hours,” says Andy G. Schneider, of Georgia, the national spokesperson for the Avian Health Program run by the Animal Plant Health and Inspection Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture who has authored three books on chickens. He says that keeping chickens is also a good way for children to learn responsibility and where their food comes from. He says, “They are living animals that depend on their owners and can live for 10 years or longer.” Backyard flocks readily compost food waste and hunt insects to eat. Their nitrogen-rich droppings and old bedding from the coop can fertilize gardens, or the chickens can be let loose in garden areas to fertilize and weed at the same time. However, they will eat desirable plants, so consider

fencing off a fallow section of garden where they can prepare the ground for the next crop. Composting, fertilizing, weeding and pest control are benefits that even matronly hens that have slowed egg production still provide. The miracle of producing an egg is a journey of its own. Rarely does a child—or grownup—squeal with as much glee as when the pet hen lays her first egg. Add the excitement of double-yolkers and tiny, yolkless “fairy eggs”, and collecting the hens’ bounty is a daily adventure.

Drawbacks

Like all pets, chickens need regular maintenance. They can get parasites such as mites or worms, or become sick. But the hardest thing about maintaining chickens is keeping them safe, according to Lisa Steele, a rural Maine farmer and author of 101 Chicken Keeping Hacks From Fresh Eggs Daily: Tips, Tricks, and Ideas for You and Your Hens. “No matter where you live, there is something that wants to kill or eat your chickens. A secure coop and run or pen are important,” Steele says. The family dog, fox, coyotes, raccoons, owls and hawks are just some of the many potential predators.

If a rooster is in the flock, he instinctively protects hens from perceived danger—great for predators, but not necessarily a desirable pet. They crow louder, earlier and more often than most would expect. Unless eggs to hatch are wanted, no rooster is needed.

Starting a Flock

After selecting breeds, a new flock can be started with adult hens or chicks from a hatchery or breeder. Steele points out that it’s important to get chicks from a reputable breeder and start them off with goodquality feed, room to exercise, fresh air and clean water. Coops can be built from plans or purchased. There is a trendy industry for palatial coops replete with window boxes, but the necessities include enough space for each chicken, roosting bars to sleep on, nesting boxes to lay eggs, good ventilation and predator-proofing. “The curtains, wallpaper and twinkle lights are fun, but not necessary,” says Steele.

osemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) is a wonderful, pungent, aromatic, “camphoraceious”, evergreen, indigenous to the Mediterranean region and now cultivated all over the world, including a nice big bush in my very own Florida garden. The botanical name Rosmarinus is derived from Latin for “dew of the sea”, referring to its pale blue flowers and its origins around the Mediterranean Sea. Rosemary is propagated by seeds, cuttings, and divisions of roots. It does best in a light, rather dry soil, in a sheltered location with sun. It can grow up to about five feet high, with bluish, sometimes pink or white flowers, and can live for 30 years or more. It is the Rosemary leaves, which look a bit like pine needles, that are harvested and dried. “There’s Rosemary, that’s for remembrance.” Shakespeare’s Hamlet to Ophelia

Rosemary has been used since ancient times, and one of its more well known qualities was for strengthening the memory, hence its use as a sign of fidelity for lovers. It has been used for everything from weddings, banquets, festivals, cooking, religious ceremonies, incense and magic spells, to funerals. At weddings, it was first dipped in scented water and then entwined in the wreath worn by the bride. The wedding guests also received a Rosemary branch, gilded and tied with silken ribbons, as a sign of love and loyalty. A minister named Roger Hacket, in his 1607 sermon entitled “A Marriage Present” spoke eloquently from the pulpit:


“Speaking of the powers of Rosemary, it overtoppeth all the flowers of the garden… It helpeth the brain, strengtheneth the memorie, and is very medicinable for the head. Another property of the Rosemary is, it affects the heart. Let this Rosmarinus, this flower of men, ensigne of your wisdom, love and loyaltie, be carried not only in your hands, but in your hearts and heads.” Sir Thomas More wrote: “As for Rosemary, I lett it runne all over my garden walls, not onlie because my bees love it, but because it is the herb sacred to remembrance, and, therefore, to friendship; whence a sprig of it hath a dumb language that maketh it the chosen emblem of our funeral wakes and in our burial grounds.” Rosemary was cultivated and found in so many kitchen gardens that it came to represent the dominant influence of the woman of the house: “Where Rosemary flourished, the woman ruled.” In Spain, Rosemary is revered as one of the bushes that gave shelter to the Virgin Mary in her flight to Egypt, and it is called “Romero”, the Pilgrim’s Flower. Rosemary has long been regarded as a safeguard from evil throughout the Mediterranean. Rosemary was often burned in the room of a sick person, and in French hospitals it is customary to burn Rosemary and Juniper berries to purify the air and prevent infection. It was placed in courtrooms to prevent “jail fever”. It has been carried by mourners at funerals and cast on to the coffin before burial. Here are some more good quotes from an old book called Bankes’ Herbal by Miss Rohde: “Take the flowers thereof and make powder thereof and binde it to thy right arme in a linen cloath and it shale make thee light and merrie.” “Take the flowers and put them in thy chest among thy clothes or among thy bookes, and moths shall not destroy them.” “Boyle the leaves in white wine and washe thy face therewith and thy browes, and

thou shalt have a faire face.”

eczema, and sciatica.

“Also put the leaves under thy bedde and thou shalt be delivered of all evill dreames.”

Rosemary is used in shampoos to lighten blonde hair, condition and tone all hair. It is used in the preparation of Eau-deCologne. It makes great wreaths and potpourris.

“Also if thou be feeble, boyle the leaves in cleane water and washe thyself and thou shalt wax shiny.” “Make thee a box of the wood of Rosemary and smell it and it shall preserve thy youth.” And from the Grete Herbal: “Rosemary – For weyknesse of ye brayne. Against weyknesse of the brayne and coldnesse thereof, seethe rosemarina in wyne and let the paycent receve the smoke at his nose and keep his heed warme.” In more recent times, scientists at the University of Cincinnati claim that the scent of Rosemary is an effective memory stimulant. Sounds like our braynes need more of that! The medicinal oils from Rosemary contain several important compounds, including: rosmarinic acid, diterpenes, triterpenes, and flavonoids. Rosemary has many medicinal uses today, including: • Antimicrobial • Antiviral • Antifungal •

Anticancer: it cut in half the incidence of lung, breast, and colon cancer in lab animals

Spasmolytic: eases the spasms of the gall bladder and the small intestine in animal studies

Circulation: improves circulation when rubbed on the skin

Hypertension: reduces blood pressure

Stomach upset

Loss of appetite

Contraindications: Rosemary should not be used medicinally during pregnancy, but as a spice it’s okay. Precautions and adverse effects: contact skin allergies can occur. The rosemary oil is usually quite concentrated, so it should not be used internally, in general. Dosage: •

Tea: 1 teaspoon of dried leaves per cup of boiling water, then strain after 15 minutes (tea may be taken several times per day).

Tincture (1:5) single dose: 20-40 drops

Liquid extract (1:1) single dose: 2-4 ml

Externally: semi-solid and liquid forms with 6-10% essential oil

Bath additive: 50 grams of dried leaves to 1 liter of hot water added to a full bath.

QI

The Force Behind Blood Flow and Higher Intelligence ~An Interview with Qigong Practitioner Jeff Primack (Part 1 of 2) Conducted by Publisher Damon Damato

DD: You coined the phrase, “Press previously. His presence activated my Qi and on Qi!” Why is this emphasized so I practiced more because of coming in direct contact with him. often in your healing forms? JP: “Press on Qi is describing subtle movement

on the edge of your magnetic field. When a person practices Qigong and learns to PRESS on the energy field it immediately strengthens blood circulation, digestion, metabolism and improves important body functions. I trademarked the term, ‘Press on Qi’ as our way of expressing this idea unique to our Qigong style.”

DD: How did your father’s work impact you by working in the medical field growing up as a child? JP: “My dad is a pharmacist at a hospital and

he loves people. He knows pharmaceuticals have side effects and believes in preventing disease using food. At first, my dad didn’t believe in Qigong. Once he felt the energy for himself he began practicing Qigong and studying Chinese medical models. My choice to enter the wellness field was influenced by my dad and his emphasis to a scientific approach. I have a healthy skepticism and present with scientific method.

DD: Why is Qigong Healing so profound compare d to other remedial modalities? JP: “Qigong works directly with your LIFE

ENERGY to a greater degree than yoga or traditional exercise by using slower movements. Postures are ‘Rooted’ in one place where grounding and electrical charges build stronger. Graceful hand motions move the Qi and blood in profound ways while the person is very relaxed. Qigong’s relaxation response allows for greater microcirculation in the frontal lobes of the brain. Qigong practice can improve intelligence and even deepen one’s connection with God, source of life. 48

Palm Beach Edition

DD: What was the driving force for you to absorb so much from the most respected masters of Qigong? JP: “As a graduate from University of Florida

College of business, I founded Supreme Science Qigong Center to be successful and took my job seriously. Many Qigong teachers I found did not provide the training I was looking for. I did a lot of research and found a Qi master, Paul Dong, who wrote a book entitled, ‘Empty Force’. I flew him from China to Florida in 2001, because he claimed to have practiced Qigong every day for over 20 years. We arranged a seminar and I gathered a hundred people to hear Paul share his forms, which were light years ahead of any Qigong learned

napalmbeach.com

After Paul flew back to China I craved to find another Qigong expert who could explain more. Master Weizhao Wu was my most influential teacher for Qigong and he practiced since age 7. Although he passed away, his memory lives in the most excellent posture corrections that he carefully gave. He would open my thumb and relax it so the tendons were not hard anymore. That thumb correction makes a huge improvement to Qi flow and has been passed to my forms.”

DD: Through this process of education and discipline, how long did it take for you to create the Supreme Science Qigong healing forms? JP: “After 5 years traveling and producing

seminars for other Qigong masters, I finally created my Level-1 Qigong Healing Form. It was first published in our books 2003 and only a few dozen instructors memorized it, but by 2007 we had certified a thousand people to teach the routine. Our videos were ‘Qi-Animated’ to show energy graphically and it assisted people in becoming sensitive to energy. In 2013, we upgraded our Qigong videos to HD animation and in 2017 we finally released our remastered Level-2 video with Ultra HD 4K animation. Spirit continues to reveal better ways for us to share these healing practices.”

DD: Will participants get to experience these Forms at the Qi Revolution Event? JP: “All 3-levels of our Qigong program are shared in detail along with Breath Empowerment, Nine-Breath Method, Tui Na Acupressure, Foot Reflexology and Food-Healing. Qi


Revolution is balanced in presentation and practice. After the event, most people choose to continue practicing Qigong from home.”

DD: Fitness classes normally get me amped up. Strength Training you share at Qi Revolution challenges me, but it has more mastery of breath than any workout I’ve done. What is significant in your Qigong strength practices for longevity? JP: “Most important is to slow down breath-

ing in Qigong Strength Training, but most athletes increase respiration when using force. Slowing breathing during pushups changes hormones we make. To demonstrate this relaxing skill during exercises, I performed 750 pushups with twenty students counting and

making sure I went up and down all the way. Qi Breathing allows for the ATP to replenish faster so that muscle contractions can occur sooner. This also dilates arteries and increases production of Nitric oxide to lower blood pressure during strenuous exercise.”

DD: If there was one take away at the end of the Qi Revolution, what would you wish for each person to embody? JP: “The most important embodiment I’d

like people to walk away with is that we can BREATHE through life’s challenges and allow God’s Healing Qi to bring strength and guidance. Attendees will personally experience a higher

energy from the Qigong. For the last 15 years, people write us thanking us for the powerful breathing exercises at crucial life challenge points. Qigong helps people process stress, but most of all it brings us into a higher state of wellbeing. We make our seminar affordable at 3-Days for $199 so that more people can reclaim their Qi.”

INTUITIVE HEALER/HYPNOIST JANE GRAY FORD 561-827-3319 • janegrayford.com ENERGY ENERGY ENERGY The secret to healing starts in the energy field of the body. Pain and disease frequently begin in the auric/ energy field and over time block the energy to the physical body. This may go on for years creating pain and eventually disease. When this energy is restored the body begins to heal itself. Jane Gray Ford for over 20 years has served the community by releasing the causes of disease whether it be karmic, genetic or derived from experiences in this lifetime. Hypnosis and intuitive understanding of energy aid in returning the body to its balanced state.
