Expanding the Tools of Acupuncture and Energy Medicine to Address Modern Health Issues
any prospective patients are not aware of the complete range of tools available to the Acupuncturist. That list is expanding. Let’s take a quick tour. Needles can be as thin as a human hair or a bit thicker. There does not always need to be a ‘da qi’ sensation created. In other words, they don’t have to hurt to work. Moxibustion tools include artemisia herb burned in roll sections, or “smokeless” versions which include Japanese charcoal tubes with adhesive foil collars to stick directly on points to add qi/ energy. I utilized tuning forks with specific tones/pitcheselicit targeted responses on selected points. Fingers, a la acupressure, are certainly in the toolkit. Having had some of my own experience with fixed polarity magnets on acupuncture points, I envisioned another way to unblock qi, using pairs of magnets with controlled frequencies of (opposite) polarity switching. Needles have iron alloy in (sterile) stainless steel content have a magnetic permeability to support a magnetic field. My
technical partner and co-inventor, Dennis Marcantonio, built a system to this design concept to support the sustained control and frequency of magnetic pole shifts using a proprietary design with patent pending. This system will control the magnetic fields surrounding the point/needle, as well as synchronous LED light. In addition, sound/acoustic stimulation signals are sent to each Magnapuncture™ pod pair. We envisioned a purpose for this design based on the demographics of the patient base, which should parallel most adults in Western civilization. Under the correct selection of points, and with the right frequencies, we confirmed that the use of MagnaPuncture™* as it is called, can deepen and quicken the relaxation response during an acupuncture treatment. This is significant, given that many modern western health issues are now recognized as induced by stress or worsened by it: • Sensitivity to Pain • Heart disease / Blood Pressure • Asthma
• Obesity/Allergies • Diabetes (II) • Headaches • Depression and anxiety • Gastrointestinal problems • Alzheimer's disease • Accelerated aging Patients often reflect Sympathetic (fight, flight, fright) response in their pulses. This can be caused by getting stuck in traffic, or to longer term stress stimuli getting ‘seated’ in the adrenal cortex in the body. The vast majority of the patients found that addition of MagnaPuncture™ to their acupuncture treatment could take them to comfortable deeper relaxation, dream states, or sleep. The point selec-

tion is customized to each patient in their personal meridian/pulse profile, and to the symptoms they relate currently, and historically. How can we help you? We are offering free consultations to address your functional health and aesthetic/beauty priorities. Watch in the near future as we add BioField Viewer imaging capability to our facility. Using standard, non-invasive lighting we take pictures with special non-linear filtering software to reveal the BioField around the body. This can show not only historical or current issues, but patterns at an energy level that have yet to affect the body at a tissue level. Other popular treatments include BioElectric DDS, where a massage adds the element of microcurrent coming directly through my hands to the patient. This is a viable needle-free modality, although we have converted many needle-phobic clients with our gentle acupuncture. In our Absolute Wellness Spa skin-care suite, micro-needling of the face and neck stimulates the skin to ramp up its own collagen production, which typically starts to wane at age 30. We have the option to add your own platelet rich plasma, as a topical applicant to amplify the treatment’s positive impact. Dr. Greg N.

Children Need to Move
hen entering an elementary school classroom, visitors commonly find a list of rules posted: Raise your hand. Stay in your seat. Speak only with permission. These rules make the classroom manageable; it would be anarchy without them. But what teachers and parents often don’t realize is that every one of these requests is completely contrary to the nature of a young child. Children don’t sit. They jump and dance and roll and climb and run. They’re not quiet. They laugh and scream and giggle and sing and make noises. And when they are required to obey these rules for lengthy periods without a break, children are forced to deny their instincts and suppress their very nature. Most scientists agree that human beings are not meant to be immobile. In his book, *Brain Rules (2014), John Medina points out that early civilizations walked many miles each day, hunting, fishing and using their bodies to survive. Movement, he asserts, is essential for physical and mental well-being and improved attention. In fact, excessive sitting causes weakness in the postural muscles (the ones that hold us upright) and increased tension in the neck, shoulders and lower back. Kids need to move. Their nervous systems benefit from a reset after sedentary periods to combat sluggishness. Mindful movement has been shown to lower stress levels, improve resilience, promote sensory processing and improve body awareness. Play teaches children about boundaries, promotes communication and supports social/emotional learning. Research suggests that increasing
physical exercise during a child’s day improves not only scholastic performance but sleep, overall fitness and self-esteem. Yet there is scarcely a place where children can run and play freely—certainly not in the halls at school, not even at recess—that is, if they even have recess. New schools are often built without playgrounds to lower costs. What’s even more surprising is that many overscheduled kids don’t know what to do at recess: some schools have had to hire “recess coaches” to teach children how to play dodgeball and tag. Free play is becoming a lost art. With increased emphasis on high stakes testing and grades, many schools view recess, field trips, class parties, physical education and the arts as an interruption of time deemed more valuable for test preparation. A backpack full of homework often displaces free time at home. This pressure to succeed in school may start with the very young. Even though scientific research points to better learning when children are in more playful, happier and less-demanding environments, many early education programs have shifted from play-based curricula to more directed learning. Between homework and technology, it’s increasingly common to find teens immobilized in front of some sort of screen—sometimes for as much as nine hours per day—according to a 2015 study by Common Sense Media Inc. These researchers have found that excessive screen time correlates with teen anxiety and depression. They recommend periodic technology “fasts”, outdoor activities, face-to-face interactions and physical exercise to break these patterns. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website (2018) asserts that even moderate exercise lowers stress and anxiety levels, elevates self-esteem, increases strength and improves endurance, builds stronger bones and muscles, maintains weight and may help regulate blood pressure and cholesterol levels. In addition, the CDC finds that regular physical activity correlates with improved school performance, including better grades, behavior, concentration, and attentiveness to schoolwork. Childhood and adolescent inactivity, however, can lead to obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease in adulthood. While busy parents may be hard-pressed to add another activity to their children’s days, schools may be able to address this challenge by incorporating movement within the classroom. Biologist and educator Carla Hannaford explored the relationship between learning and movement in her 2005 book *Smart Moves. She shared stories
Palm Beach Edition
of children with severe learning challenges who made extraordinary academic and social leaps once liberated from their desks. She implemented two-minute breathing and exercise breaks to foster self-regulation, reinforcing her belief that moving, playing and interacting with others is a necessary component to learning. In fact, exercise has been shown to improve executive function—the ability to plan, schedule, switch tasks and stay focused while in a highly stimulating environment—according to a 2006 study by Dr. Charles H. Hillman and colleagues at the University of Illinois at Urbana. Implementing classroom yoga and breathing exercises resulted in lower levels of cortisol in elementary school students, as reported by Butzer et al (2015). Dr. Stephen Porges maintains that even a few simple movements can bring about significant changes within the nervous system. By shifting one’s position from seated to standing for a few moments, he explains, the vagus nerve can be activated and stress levels lowered. Standing next to their desks in class and moving their bodies often helps kids return to work with increased clarity and focus. Taking a few guided side stretches or deep breaths throughout the day can lower stress levels and prevent tension from escalating. There are many reasons to get kids moving. By incorporating simple breathing techniques and exercise within a child’s day, parents and educators can help them reduce anxiety, better regulate their emotions and improve school performance. Kids who exercise tend to sleep better and have greater resilience. And getting them off their screens and interacting with others helps reduce the loneliness and isolation that may precede adolescent depression.

Healing through the Subconscious
esearch has shown that the subconscious mind controls 95 percent of our lives. This is why repeating affirmations and thinking positively on a conscious level may not be enough to make lasting changes in one’s life. Incorporating hypnosis, meditation and various forms of yoga can help to improve mental, physical, emotional and spiritual balance. Jill Avery, founder and creator of Quantum Healing Discoveries, is a QHHT practitioner, KRI instructor and nutrition educator. She seeks to bring healing and higher consciousness to those with whom she interacts. Her mission is to inspire people to know how powerful they truly are. By becoming aware of this, they can create the changes needed in order to reach their full potential. Clients can improve in self-confidence; eliminate fears, phobias and anxieties; relieve pain; address relationship concerns (family, romantic, children, spouse); find direction with career; quit smoking; lose weight; understand past lives; clear financial blockages; improve health issues; cleanse auras and chakras. Avery will assist her clients in discovering their life’s purpose by removing negative emotions and reprograming the subconscious mind to create balance and healing from within. For more information and appointment, call 561-305-3236, email info@QuantumHealingDiscoveries. com and/or visit QuantumHealingDiscoveries.com.

BAHAMA ISLANDS RELIEF EFFORTS Shattered Lives – You Can Help
he Islands of the Bahamas have been described as a “little piece of paradise” with their transparent turquoise waters, white sandy beaches, underwater caves and colorful coral reefs, a haven for tourists to enjoy the weather, the people, the culture and the waters. On September 1, Hurricane Dorian made landfall in the Abaco Islands as a category 5; for two days, the islands were pounded with 185-mph winds and 25-foot storm surges. The hurricane erased entire neighborhoods. Some survivors remain to salvage anything they can, but they are left without identification, personal records, money, means of communication and family members are still missing. The UN World Food Programme estimates that Abaco will need food for 14,500 people and Grand Bahama Island will require food for 45,700 people. It is estimated that 20,000 Bahamians live in South Florida and parts of the island chain are only 50 miles east of the Florida coast. Many Floridians are wondering what they can do to help their neighbors. Here are a few of the organizations that are mobilizing in The Palm Beaches as well as organizations outside the area providing much-needed aid: The Eagles Wings Foundation provides emergency support to local government agencies affected by disaster impact. They are collecting donations and supplies at their facility located at 514 14th St., West Palm Beach. National Association of The Bahamas (NAB), a 501(c) non-profit serving Bahamian interest and supporting The Bahamas since 1993, is accepting donations at nabMiami.org. Sandals Foundation Hurricane Relief Fund, the nonprofit arm of Sandals Resorts, is helping restore lives in the northern Bahamas. One-hundred percent of all donations will go toward hurricane relief and rebuilding efforts. Donate at SandalsFoundation.org/donation. Big Dog Ranch Rescue, in Loxahatchee, has a history of going to places hit by hurricanes where animals need human help. They have evacuated dogs from the Bahamas Humane Society and need help with adoptions, food and donations. To help in their rescue and relief efforts, call 561-791-6465. Good Vibrations Music Co., a local non-profit in Palm Beach, is donating the proceeds from their upcoming Sound Healing Concerts, to be held from 6:15 to 7:15 p.m. and 7:30 to 8:30 p.m., on October 19, at the South Florida Science Center & Aquarium. Free healing sessions will take place from 4 to 6 p.m. on the grounds with top healers from the area donating their time and energy to help people release trauma, fear, anxiety and more. To volunteer healing sessions and/or for more information and tickets, call 561-318-1578 or visit UniversalHealingConcert.Eventbrite.com.

Breast Health: From a Lymphatic Point of View
reventative healthcare has become a deep rooted concept in our culture. As a Certified Lymphatic Therapist for over twenty five years, I have treated hundreds of women and some men, who have had symptoms that were secondary to breast cancer treatment. As a result, I have often dreamed of a practice that was preventative, one that might help people achieve health and comfort before they succumb to this disease. At The Therapeutic Alternative, we believe in cleansing the tissues of the breast, as well as the whole body, to keep the tissue fluids crystal clear. It is a good place to start with this preventative approach to breast health! Lymphatic Drainage helps to drain and keep breast tissue clear of congestion and waste build up. The lymphatic system is a very fine and delicate system, one that requires some pressure build up to be active. Lymphatic Therapy is designed to stimulate and accelerate the lymphatic system, through gentle manipulation of the skin, the tissue of the breasts are decongested. We believe that it is beneficial to support breast tissue with lymph drainage, body brushing, and self massage. As a part of each detoxifying
lymphatic treatment, we teach body brushing, self massage, and other self care techniques. We employ the use of a variety of different body brushes to manipulate the skin, and therefore the lymphatic system. All of our brushes are imported directly from Germany, are handmade, and are of the highest quality. At The Therapeutic Alternative we applaud all who have fought the fight of Breast Cancer! During the month of October, The Therapeutic Alternative will raffle several retail items to benefit the National Lymphedema Network Garment Fund. This fund offers compression garments to those who have lymphedema after breast cancer, but can't afford them. Help support the women and men who have been affected by the side effects of treated Cancer.

Are Faux-Meat Burgers Good for You?
on-meat burgers have become very popular. People are drawn to these foods because they are trying to reduce their consumption of red meat and believe that plant-based foods are healthier and better for the environment. While plant-based diets have been connected with good health, are these “fake meat” products healthy? Highly Processed Foods Our bodies were designed to thrive on whole, natural foods. The overconsumption of processed foods in the Standard American Diet (SAD) has led to a myriad of health problems. Two of the most popular faux meat products (designed to mimic the taste of meat) on the market right now are ‘Impossible Burger’ and ‘Beyond Beef ’ which are heavily processed foods. The following list of ingredients was obtained from their websites. Impossible Burger: Water, Soy Protein Concentrate, Coconut Oil, Sunflower Oil, Natural Flavors, 2% or less of: Potato Protein, Methylcellulose, Yeast Extract, Cultured Dextrose, Food Starch Modified, Soy Leghemoglobin, Salt, Soy Protein Isolate, Mixed Tocopherols (Vitamin E), Zinc Gluconate, Thiamine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B1), Sodium Ascorbate (Vitamin C), Niacin, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B6), Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), Vitamin B12. Beyond Beef: Water, Pea Protein Isolate, ExpellerPressed Canola Oil, Refined Coconut Oil, Rice Protein, Natural Flavors, Cocoa Butter, Mung Bean Protein, Methylcellulose, Potato Starch, Apple Extract, Salt, Potassium Chloride, Vinegar, Lemon Juice Concentrate, Sunflower Lecithin, Pomegranate Fruit Powder, Beet Juice Extract (for color). A Few Ingredient Highlights Both products use ‘natural flavors’ which are
derived from substances found in nature (plants, animals, etc.) but can also contain preservatives, emulsifiers, solvents and other incidental additives. The Impossible Burger contains GMO soy. At this point there is not enough evidence to know what effect GMOs will have on us or on the earth. There are current concerns including increased allergy risk, negative impact on the balance of our gut microbiome/gut health and increased antibiotic resistance in humans. Although GMO crops are often contaminated with glyphosate, their website claims that their products are tested for glyphosate. The yeast extract found in this product can pose problems for MSG-sensitive individuals. Beyond Beef contains pea protein isolate. Popularity of plant-based protein alternatives has led to increased use of pea protein. However, the supply has not been adequately tested to ensure Americans are getting clean products. The Detox Project (a research agency that tests levels of pesticides in our food and supplements) has found many products containing pea protein are contaminated with glyphosate. Glyphosate is an herbicide that has been linked to cancer. In 2015, the World Health Organization classified glyphosate as ‘probably carcinogenic to humans’. It has also been shown to disrupt hormone balance and the gut microbiome in the body. Be aware of sodium levels in restaurant offerings of 0% beef burgers. The Impossible Whopper served at Burger King contains 1080 mg of sodium. The American Heart Association recommends no more than 2,300 mg of sodium per day and an ideal limit of less than 1,500 mg per day for most adults, especially for those with high blood pressure.
Whole Foods Are Always the Best Option Natural beef can have a place in a healthy, balanced diet. Red meat is a complete protein source and contains a variety of bioavailable nutrients including heme iron, zinc, and B vitamins. As always, portion size matters and you can make better choices at the supermarket by choosing meat from animals raised with no antibiotics or added hormones. Another good choice is grass-fed beef which may contain less total fat than grain-fed beef, but a lot more omega-3 fatty acids and CLA (conjugated linoleic acid), which are both linked to health benefits. The best plant-based protein alternatives should be focused on whole foods. If you are interested in non-meat burgers, veggie burgers would be the best alternative and the best choice would be to make them at home. These burgers will provide natural vitamins and minerals from actual vegetables. There are a lot of plant-based protein options available such as quinoa, beans, lentils, nuts, seeds, peas, soy, mushrooms, chickpeas – and even whole grains and green vegetables offer varying amounts of protein. One of the most researched diets for providing a healthy lifestyle, the Mediterranean diet, recommends focusing on whole, natural foods and eating lots of vegetables. This diet does recommend limiting red meat to a few times per month. Overall, we should eat less processed foods, but on occasion a pre-made veggie burger can be a viable option. Just be sure to read the ingredients and choose the most natural option. The bottom line is that if you would like to have a burger then have one. Just limit this to occasional indulgences. It is best to eat foods where you can identify them for what they are. The more mysterious the ingredients are, the less likely that it will be nutritious for you.

on specific points on the feet, hands, ears and face that correspond to organs, glands and systems within the body. Three years ago, Jane Waters chose to pursue her dream of ministering to others by enrolling in Laura Norman’s Reflexology Training Program, covering foot, hand, face and ear reflexology. She told me recently, “ I feel it is my calling to ‘turn people on’ to this gift”. Jane has a client whose headaches just melt away while she is being worked on. Her client told Jane she is calmer and experiences a feeling of complete well being long after each session. And Jane has discovered a new, satisfying “niche,” using her hand reflexology skills to work with artists. Laura Norman’s Method of Holistic Reflexology empowers the practitioner and their client by addressing the whole person – physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Laura’s attention to the spiritual aspects of healing is what drew Debbie Shields to enroll in Laura’s program. For Debbie her training has been “absolutely lifetransforming!” The hands-on training and supportive, nurturing class environment gave Debbie the space to perfect her art.

he Amazon rainforest is in a critical state of near-collapse with a record number of fires in Brazil this year—twice as many as in 2018. The fires have been deliberately set to deforest the Amazon and displace its indigenous populations to make way for soybean and cattle farming and oil drilling, actions encouraged by Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro. The Amazon is known as the as the “lungs” of our Earth; its oxygen is an essential, irreparable link that holds our global ecosystem within balance. Scientists say that with another 5 percent burned, the Amazon could reach the tipping point of ecosystem collapse.

A three-decade study of 3,325 young people in Bristol, UK, found that kids that were bullied at age 10 had eight times the rate of depression in their teen years, and that it persisted for some into their adult years. Using detailed mood and feelings questionnaires and genetic information, researchers found that childhood bullying was strongly associated with depression. Bullied children had a greater risk of both limited depression occurrence and persistent depressive issues. Other risk factors found to be associated with depression in the children included anxiety and the mother’s postnatal depression.

Children born with low vitamin D levels have an approximately 60 percent higher risk of elevated systolic blood pressure between ages 6 and 18, reports a study of 775 Boston children published in the American Heart Association journal Hypertension. Those with persistently low levels of vitamin D through early childhood had double the risk of elevated systolic blood pressure between ages 3 and 18. Higher systolic numbers increase the risk of cardiovascular disease later in life. Because infants’ vitamin D levels are determined by the mothers’ levels during pregnancy, researchers suggest exploring an official recommendation for vitamin D supplementation during pregnancy.
Protect Kids From Bullying to Lower Risk of Teen Depression
Reduce Kids’ Risk of High Blood Pressure With Maternal Vitamin D
In a Brazilian study published in the Journal of Herbal Medicine, extracts of rosemary leaves and pomegranate peels, along with a South African herb known as misty plume bush, significantly reduced the ability of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) bacteria to grow and spread in the laboratory, a finding that may help develop new strategies against the superbug.
Up to 75 percent of women deal at some point with the itchiness, discharge and sexual discomfort and pain of vaginal yeast infections caused by Candida species, the most prevalent being Candida albicans. Egyptian laboratory researchers tested fennel oil and eight other plant-based essential oils on 19 Candida albicans strains that were resistant to the antifungal medication fluconazole. They found that the fennel oil had significant antifungal properties against the strains, outperforming chamomile, jojoba, nigella, fenugreek, cod liver, peppermint, clove and ginger oils. When combined with fluconazole, fennel was effective on seven strains, theoretically lowering the need for higher doses of the medication.

Consider Motherwort to Reduce Postpartum Bleeding
Avoid Pesticides to Lower Kidsâ€™ Risk of Depression
A meta-review of 37 studies that included 7,887 mothers giving birth found that an injection of oriental motherwort (Leonurus japonicus), a Traditional Chinese Medicine herb used for thousands of years, decreased blood loss and other adverse events during birth at a minimal cost with few side effects.
Another reason to consider organics: A study of 529 teens and preteens linked high exposure to pesticides to a higher risk of depression. University of California San Diego School of Medicine researchers studied children between 11 and 17 years old in the Ecuadorian Andes, the third-largest exporter of roses. The flowers are routinely sprayed with organophosphate insecticides known to affect the human cholinergic system, a key component in the function of the brain and nervous system. Drawing blood samples, the researchers found that teens that had lower levels of acetylcholinesterase enzyme activity resulting from pesticide toxicity showed more symptoms of depression, especially in girls and those younger than 14. The findings back up anecdotal reports from Andeans of a rise in teen depression and suicide.
Take Cordyceps to Enhance Immunity Cordyceps, a fungus that grows on caterpillars high in the Himalayas, has long been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine as a rejuvenating and performance-enhancing medicine. The latest Korean research shows it also boosts the immune system. Scientists tested 79 healthy adults for eight weeks, giving 39 of them 1,680 milligrams of cordyceps a day in capsules and the other 40 were given a placebo. The cordyceps produced a 38 percent increase in natural killer (NK) cell activity, which plays a role in immunity by detecting and killing virus-infected cells, tumor cells and abnormal cells.
Boot the Bottle for Mental Well-Being A study of 10,386 people in Hong Kong and the United States compared mental well-being among moderate drinkers and nondrinkers, with multiple-year, followup periods. Men and women that were lifetime abstainers had the highest levels of mental well-being, surpassed only by women that had quit drinking.
Take Rosemary to Boost Memory, Mood and Sleep The common kitchen herb rosemary holds promise for insomniacs. Iranian researchers tested 68 university students for a month, giving them either 1,000 milligrams of rosemary herb each day or a placebo. Those that took the rosemary herbal supplement had improved memory, reduced anxiety and less depression at the end of the month. Using the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Inventory scale, those taking the rosemary slept better, as well. October 2019 23
Extraterrestrial Matter Found on Earth
The endangered Florida panther has been saved from extinction thanks to the introduction of female Texan pumas, reports a 10-year study conducted by the University of Florida and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The pumas, which like the panthers, are a sub-species of cougar, were brought to Florida in 1995 to counter the effects of habitat loss and health issues caused by panther inbreeding, including heart defects, infertility and other genetic problems. The panther population has since rebounded from a low of 20 to 30 cats to between 120 and 230.
Texas Pumas Counter Inbreeding
The Makhonjwa Mountains of South Africa harbor some of the planet’s oldest rocks, including meteorites that have been striking the Earth for eons. According to the peer-reviewed journal Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta, researchers using electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy have discovered a 3.3 billion-year-old layer of rock that contains two types of insoluble organic matter, both of which suggest extraterrestrial origins, making it the oldest extraterrestrial organic matter ever identified. Many scientists think the basic molecules of life may have originated in outer space.
Conflicts Heating Up Over Arctic Reserves
Palm Beach Edition

Twenty-four scientists from around the world published a letter entitled, “Stop Military Conflicts From Trashing Environment,” in the journal Nature, urging the United Nations International Law Commission to create protections for the environment in armed conflicts. It reads, “We call on governments to incorporate explicit safeguards for biodiversity, and to use the commission’s recommendations to finally deliver a Fifth Geneva Convention to uphold environmental protection during such confrontations.” The four existing Geneva Conventions and their three additional protocols are globally recognized treaties that establish standards under international humanitarian law for the treatment of wounded military personnel, shipwrecked sailors, prisoners of war and civilians during armed conflicts. Violating the treaties amounts to a war crime.
Environmental Destruction Tapped as War Crime
Scientists warn that the Arctic is heating up much faster than the world average because of rising greenhouse gas emissions. Over the last five years, the region has been warmer than at any time since record keeping began in 1900, which is opening up untapped reserves of oil, gas, uranium, gold, fish and rare earth minerals. At a May meeting of the Arctic Council, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned Russia and China against “aggressive” actions in the region, saying, “This is America’s moment to stand up as an Arctic nation.” Gao Feng, the head of the Chinese delegation to the council, whose mission is to foster cooperation among Arctic countries and protect the fragile environment, says, “It’s [the U.S.] a country that stepped out of the Paris Agreement and then they’re talking about protecting the environment of the Arctic.”

Askwsar Hilonga, Ph.D., a chemical engineer and public health scientist in Tanzania, grew up dealing with waterborne diseases such as cholera that made him ill. According to the World Health Organization, he has used his scientific expertise and local knowledge to develop a purification system based on nanomaterials. While the filter is still under study, stations have been set up throughout Tanzania, mostly managed by women, to help those that otherwise would not have safe drinking water.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration estimates the algaechoked “dead zone” in the Gulf of Mexico near the mouth of the Mississippi River spanned 7,829 square miles this summer, roughly the size of Massachusetts and considerably above the 6,000-square-mile fiveyear average. The largest recorded Gulf dead zone to date was 8,776 square miles in 2017. Dead zones occur when algae sinks and decomposes, sucking oxygen from the water and making it impossible for marine life to exist, jeopardizing billions of dollars generated by commercial fishing in the area. The phenomenon is primarily attributed to chemical fertilizer runoff from Midwestern farms into the Mississippi, exacerbated by warming trends.

Unexpected Aquatic Rebound

Overfished and struggling widow rockfish are returning to the Pacific coast. Legal protections since 2001 had made it illegal to take the fish commercially, and fisheries managers implemented “catch share” regulations as the fishing fleet dwindled from 400 to 50 trawlers. But the fish have made a faster comeback than expected. National Marine Fisheries Service biologist Jason Cope notes that scientists were surprised by how quickly some rockfish species can reproduce. “We thought it might take a century or so for them to rebuild themselves; it’s now taking maybe a decade.”
Superfund Success Story Toxic Site Now Welcomes Walkers
A wood-treating process for telephone poles that caused soil and groundwater contamination prompted the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to designate 47 acres in Bellingham, Washington, as a Superfund site in 1997. The cleanup, including removal of 28,000 tons of contaminated soil to a repository, reestablishment of a natural stream and restoring wetlands, is now complete, with walking and bicycling paths, newly planted native trees and wetland shrubs, and returning birdlife. The Oeser Company, which cooperated with the cleanup, has operated at the site since 1943 and continues to do so.

Climate Crisis May Promote Superbugs
A new analysis links climate change to the recent global rise of a multidrug-resistant fungal superbug, Candida auris. A decade after it was discovered in 2009, the superbug has popped up in many genetically distinct strains in more than 30 countries on three continents. Mystified, scientists say that fungal diseases are relatively uncommon in humans because of body temperature, but if they adapt to rising temperatures and aren’t easily treatable with medications, they could increasingly endanger human health on a global scale. “Global warming may lead to new fungal diseases that we don’t even know about right now,” warns Arturo Casadevall, lead author of the study published in mBio and chair of molecular microbiology and immunology at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

Icelanders unveiled a plaque in an official ceremony on August 18 in memory of Okjokull Glacier, or Ok Glacier, the first of its kind officially lost to climate change. The glacier lost its glacier status in 2014 after melting down to only 0.386 square miles, or 6.6 percent of its original 5.8 square miles, and was reclassified as dead ice. The plaque is inscribed with A Letter to the Future, which includes the words, “This monument is to acknowledge that we know what is happening and what needs to be done. Only you know if we did it.” A 2018 documentary, Not Ok, details the glacier’s death and highlights the dire effects of climate change.
Natural Awakenings senior writer Linda Sechrist credits her 15 years of researching and interviewing spiritual luminaries with putting her on the path to her own spiritual awakening, which is detailed in one chapter of All You Need Is Love: The Importance of Transcending Spiritual Clichés and Living Their Deeper Wisdom. The new book offers a candid, fresh look at the way many New Age concepts have been trivialized and commercialized, when they’re “guaranteed to deliver overnight abundance, soulmates and enlightenment in easy 5-step workshops.” It shines a light on many popular spiritual myths that have come to obscure the deepest universal truth of the divine—which is that love is paramount—as argue many of the essays from 19 experienced spiritual practitioners. Available on Amazon.com, the book includes thoughtful anecdotal accounts from Sechrist; author Cate Montana; energy healer Cameron Day; and Betsy Chasse, director of the film What the Bleep Do We Know?!; among others.

The Silent Killers in Your Mouth
by Dr. Yolanda Cintron
very year for my birthday in September, I take a break to refresh, “resharpen my saw” and reflect, getting ready for our October mission trip to the dental clinic in Egbe, Nigeria, (EgbeHospital.org) and give thanks to our Lord for His mercies and ask Him for guidance and healing for others. I want to do it differently and make a difference, in a world full of noise and pollution, bringing HOPE. We see so many patients young and old whose lives are in critical condition. How did they get this sick? When I examine their mouths and we look at the intraoral photos, in horror they can’t believe their eyes. This is where your digestion starts! It got this bad because they felt no pain. We just c ame b a ck f rom t he International Organization for Oral Medicine and Toxicology annual meeting in Stowe, Vermont, where great scientific minds exchanged new biological protocols, finding root causes for diseases and how to eradicate toxicity from our aging bodies. Reducing inflammation and oxidative stressors were the topics for all days. Like an apple turns brown when the oxygen hits it, we age when we get oxidized. Finally, taking liposomal Vitamin C, glutathione and other natural antioxidants and getting intravenous Vitamin C among other vitamins and antioxidants has entered mainstream medicine for maintenance of health, rejuvenation and cure of degenerative diseases and cancers… for a fraction of the cost. We all have to be open minded to change. A prescription is not a cure for disease; it only treats symptoms. Let’s find a solution to the problem. My favorite speaker was Dr. Thomas
Levy. I had just read his book, Hidden Epidemic, Silent Oral Infections Cause Most Heart Attacks and Breast Cancers. He says that most people never feel pain until it is too late. As a cardiologist and attorney, he learned all this information not in medical school but working and researching for eight years with his mentor, Dr. Hal Huggins. He witnessed and documented in shock how terminally sick patients had their dental revisions done and then experienced clinical and laboratory improvements only after a few weeks of finishing their complete dental work. The revisions included 1. Removal of periodontal infection, gum and bone infection, cavitation, replacement of heavy metals and infected root canal teeth. 2. Lifestyle changes but you can’t jog away from cancer; the toxic loads must be removed first. Dr. Levy concluded with irrefutable scientific evidence that the “demonstrable link” to most chronic degenerative diseases was oral infection, nearly always the cause of heart attacks (after biopsies on the patients who suffered heart attacks); the same pathogens with their associated toxins chronically increased oxidative stress seen in all kinds of cancers and indifferent organs like pancreas, colon, lung, breasts. He found the breast tissue of breast cancer patients had great concentrations of microbes like fusobacterium which are a significant pathogen in periodontal disease. We have the same experience with our patients. When we do DNA biopsies of the infected gums or root canal teeth that we extract, we find the bacteriological reports are packed with microorganisms at dangerous, severe toxicity levels and a direct correlation not only to the meridian and the organ but the severity
of infection draining into the lymphatics going down into the organs. Dr. Levy explained that the steady suffusion of oral pathogens and their related toxins keeping much of the breast tissue in continued states of oxidative stress impairs cellular function and the immune system is not able to keep cleaning the overwhelming amount of attacks. Today I reviewed another DNA biopsy on a female patient in her 40’s diagnosed with breast cancer. Dental diagnosis was: Periodontal disease and infected root canal teeth. Her results were in RED letters FUSOBACTERIUM at severe risk levels. We celebrated that we removed them and she is on her way to wellness. I, like Dr. Levy and many other physicians at the conference, have seen great results with nontoxic treatments. I recommend high doses of Vitamin C intravenously before, during and after treatment. Let us help you. For more information on these subjects and/or a complete dental revision, call 954-938-4599, email Info@DrCintron.com or visit GoNaturalDentistry.com.

Dental floss, that little everyday staple in our medicine cabinets, has been taking on a bad name environmentally. The smooth, slippery flosses that are the top choice among both dentists and consumers are made with a Teflonlike product containing toxic PFAs and PFCs. The wax coatings and flavors of ordinary nylon flosses are typically made with petroleum products that may be endocrine disrupters. The floss, plastic spools and flip-top containers can’t be recycled easily because of their size, and floss filament easily tangles up recycling machinery. In landfills, their toxins leak into the soil; in waterways, floss can entangle and even kill sea creatures. And washing and reusing floss isn’t a good option because it runs the risk of introducing bacteria into new areas of the mouth, warns the American Dental Association. However, a handful of new eco-options in flosses have emerged, primarily with silk and bamboo, which are biodegradable and free of chemicals. Blogger Beth Terry at MyPlasticFreeLife.com rates Dental Lace, a floss made of 100 percent silk coated with candelilla wax from Mexican trees, as her favorite product. It’s packaged without a plastic coil in a refillable glass container, making it a 99 percent zerowaste product. In addition, the company, based in Cape Elizabeth, Maine, offers a vegan bamboo version. Bamboo flosses in eco-friendly containers are also made by Los Angeles-based Terra & Co. (with activated charcoal, coconut oil, peppermint oil and no synthetic fragrances, sweeteners or artificial colorings, in a cardboard box); and Altoona, Florida-based Lucky Teeth (activated charcoal, candelilla plant wax, organic peppermint oil and tea tree oil, in a glass jar). Two other easy-to-find flosses, by Eco-Dent and Tom’s of Maine, are made of nylon, but are covered in natural vegan waxes rather than beeswax or petroleum-based waxes. They come in compostable cardboard boxes but include plastic spools. Advice columnist Umbra of Grist.org recommends switching to an oral irrigator or water flosser that plugs into the wall or runs on a battery—sometimes rechargeable—because it effectively removes plaque, is reusable, produces no trash, lasts for years and uses relatively little water and electricity.

body, not just the mouth,” says Bernice Teplitsky, DDS, of Wrigleyville Dental, in Chicago, and president of the Holistic Dental Association (HDA), based in Coral Gables, Florida. Holistic dentists abstain from toxic materials, remove amalgam fillings, may be wary of root canals and focus on minimally invasive procedures—some of which may be high-tech and cutting-edge, such as lasers to clean teeth and gums, ozone therapy to slow the growth of infections and air abrasion to “sandblast” away small areas of tooth decay.
Mouth Matters A Holistic Approach to Oral Health T
by Ronica O’Hara
he mouth is the doorway to the body,” so the saying goes, and today we know just how true that is. Years ago, the biannual trip to the dentist was typically a simple “drill-andfill” operation, with other health concerns not given a second glance. Now, emerging research shows that when we neglect basic oral care—even that annoying task of nightly or post-meal flossing—we endanger our heart, lungs, kidneys and even our brains by allowing the buildup of pernicious bacteria in our gums.
In April, University of Louisville School of Dentistry researchers reported that the bacteria P. gingivalis, which flourishes in gum disease, was found in brain samples of deceased Alzheimer’s patients—and that inflammation, swelling and bleeding in gums can transport the bacteria from the mouth into the bloodstream simply through chewing or teeth-brushing. The study also 30
Palm Beach Edition
linked the bacteria to rheumatoid arthritis and aspiration pneumonia. Advanced gum disease also increases the risk of cancer by 24 percent, especially lung and colorectal cancers; quadruples the rate of kidney disease; and increases the risk of strokes, coronary artery disease, diabetes and pre-term births, other studies show. These findings have sobering implications for the nearly half of the American adults over age 30 and 70 percent of adults 65 and older with gum disease. “Science has proven that a healthy mouth is a healthy body,” says San Francisco holistic dentist Nammy Patel, author of Age With Style: Your Guide to a Youthful Smile & Healthy Living.
Body, Mind, Teeth
It’s part of the reason for the fresh interest in holistic dentistry, sometimes called biologic dentistry. “We look at the entire
Holistic dentists work closely with a wide range of other complementary practitioners. “We look at the underlying causes for gum disease and cavities: Is it your diet, or hormonal changes or acid reflux?” Patel explains. That may mean prescribing a head massage, acupuncture session, meditation lessons or dietary counseling. They may run blood tests for biocompatibility of materials and incorporate approaches from Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, herbology, homeopathy, iridology, craniosacral therapy and energy medicine. They will look for signs of sleep apnea and often treat it. However, with the added tests and consultations, they tend to be more expensive, with many procedures not covered by dental insurance. Their numbers are small: Only 391 of 199,000 American dentists belong to the HDA, or about one in 500. Yet the natural health movement that drives holistic dentistry is having an effect on the profession at large. Many dentists nationwide, pressured by patients and aided by new technology, are abandoning toxic and invasive options for less harmful methods. Controversial mercury amalgam fillings are being edged out by less toxic options like resin composites that match teeth color; the amount of mercury sold in the U.S. for dental amalgams fell by half between 2001 and 2013.
We look at the underlying causes for gum disease and cavities: Is it your diet, or hormonal changes or acid reflux?
Conventional dental X-rays, which in a Yale study published in the American Cancer Association journal Cancer were linked to non-cancerous brain tumors, are yielding to computerized digital X-rays with a fifth of the radiation: As many as two out of three dentists have switched over. And aided by computer imaging software and 3-D printers, dentists are fabricating new crowns, implants, bridges and dentures right in the office, instead of using what Austin, Texas, dentist David Frank calls “intrusive analog [gooey impressions] that left patients feeling claustrophobic, highly anxious and consistently worried about gagging.”

Flossing: Some smooth, slippery flosses
Dialogue With Dentists When visiting a dentist, whether holistic or not, it’s wise to be prepared with a natural health mindset. Some questions to ask are:
What are you filling the cavity with? Just say no to amalgam, a mixture of heavy metals, of which about half is elemental mercury that slowly releases toxic vapors. Plus, “Heavy metals can leak into the enamel tubes of the teeth causing the teeth to appear gray or dark blue and making them brittle over time,” warns Los Angeles cosmetic dentist Rhonda Kalasho. Instead, ask for relatively nontoxic options such as porcelain or composite resins, which can be made of materials such as silica, ceramic, plastics and zirconium oxide. Some composite resins contain the endocrine disrupters Bis-GMA or BPA; for extra protection, ask for one that doesn’t, or ask the dentist to use a rubber dam to prevent swallowing it.
Should I have my amalgam fillings removed? Holistic dentists like Patel give a
strong yes. “The problem arises with mercury when you chew or brush your teeth. The abrasion creates heat and causes the mercury to off-gas. Those vapors get swallowed and go into your body, where they’re stored—and that creates significant health hazards— because we’re talking about a known poison,” she says. Other dentists disagree about removal, citing its risks: Holistic pioneer Dr. Andrew Weil, for example, writes that removing amalgam fillings is often unnecessary, costly and stressful, and recommends exchanging them for composite resin only when they break down.
Toothpaste: Study the labels and be wary of the following ingredients: fluoride, sodium lauryl sulfate, triclosan and sodium hydroxide. These ingredients are a plus: baking soda (sodium bicarbonate), green tea, Eucalyptol, menthol, tea tree oil and vitamin D.
Do I really need antibiotics? Oregon
State University researchers found in a study this year of 90,000 patients that the antibiotics often prescribed by dentists as prevention against infection are unnecessary 81 percent of the time, and contribute to antibiotic resistance. Typically, patients didn’t have the precise cardiac conditions that warranted the extra caution.
Is a root canal the best option?
Some holistic dentists counsel against root canals, citing the risk of long-term health problems caused by lingering bacteria, and advocate the use of herbs, laser therapy or extractions instead. “If root canals were done 20 to 30 years ago, it is definitely a problem, because there were not enough technological advances to clean out all the bacteria which could cause chronic health complications,” says Patel. “Nowadays, depending on the tooth root, canals can be 99.9 percent cleaned by lasers.”
Back to the Basics Considering the stakes, preventive care is all-important and there are many natural options to guarantee robust oral health. At the natural health store or drugstore, consider the following options:
Toothbrush: Electric toothbrushes reduced plaque 21 percent more and gingivitis 11 percent more after three months compared to manual toothbrushes, reported a review of 56 studies involving 5,068 participants. Those that rotate rather than brush back-and-forth clean slightly better.
are coated with toxic, Teflon-like perfluorinated polymers linked to kidney and testicular cancer, ulcerative colitis and hormonal disruptions. A recent study found higher levels in women using those flosses. Instead, use the old-fashioned nylon kind or try out new flosses made of biodegradable silk or bamboo or those infused with antimicrobial tea tree oil. Or, consider a water flosser, which Canadian researchers found were 29 percent more effective at plaque removal than string floss.
Mouthwash: Mouthwashes containing alcohol significantly raise the risk of throat cancer, Australian researchers found. Instead, opt for super-healthy green tea as a mouthwash, as well as a drink. Studies show that it protects teeth from erosion and promotes healthy gums. Another simple option is warm salt water, using one cup of water and one-half teaspoon of salt. A 2017 study by the Cochrane medical study organization found it is virtually as effective as the prescription antiseptic mouthwash chlorhexidine in reducing dental plaque and microbes. Pulling: An ancient Ayurvedic remedy, this involves swishing a spoonful of organic coconut oil around the mouth and through the teeth for 10 to 20 minutes. The oil’s lauric acid, a natural antibacterial, has been found in studies to reduce plaque formation and fungal infections, as well as the strains of bacteria linked to bad breath and irritated gums. Taking care of our teeth and gums is simply worth the daily time and trouble to facilitate long-term health. “Your oral care should be taken just as seriously as watching your diet,” advises Kalasho.

RETHINKING OUR STUFF Moving Toward a Circular Economy
by Yvette Hammett
hen Yale researcher Reid Lifset began working on waste issues on a life cycle basis—from “cradle to grave”—it was mostly the world’s geeks and nerds that paid attention, he says. “Today, it’s called the ‘circular economy’ and it’s sexy. It wasn’t sexy back then.” While many still have never even heard the term, the “circular economy” is all about rethinking the way we make stuff— designing products that can be reused and powering it all with renewable energy. It’s an alternative to the “make-use-and-dispose” mentality of the traditional linear economy. “You are the circular economy when you buy pre-owned, second-hand objects, or rent or share the use of objects, or have broken objects repaired instead of buying new ones,” says Walter Stahel, author of The Circular Economy: A User’s Guide and a member of the European Union’s Circular Economy Stakeholder Platform. In other words, everyone that buys sustainable goods or services, takes public transport or gets a lawnmower fixed instead of buying a new one is a participant.
There’s a global movement afoot to expand the circular economy in an effort to significantly cut the waste stream, reduce our carbon footprint and conserve resources. It began with the three R’s—reduce, recycle and reuse, says Lifset, a Research Scholar at the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies who edits the Journal of Industrial Ecology, which focuses on the environmental consequences of production and consumption. The emphasis has always been on recycling, but as that becomes more difficult due to saturation levels, the emphasis is shifting to the more comprehensive goals of a circular economy—or should be, says Stahel, an engineering professor at the University of Surrey. Tinia Pina, a program leader at NY Cares, joined the movement after observing the poor food choices her Harlem, New York, students were making and the amount of waste attached to them. She founded Re-Nuble, a small manufacturing operation in New York City, to transform food waste
into fertilizer pellets that can be used in hydroponic farming. “There is a strong need to try to reduce the volume of waste,” Pina says. “There is also a strong need to produce sustainable— and, ideally, chemical-free—food and make it affordable for all.” She hopes to eventually replicate her process for creating fertilizer in other large cities across the country. Leasing is another classic example of how the circular economy might work, Lifset says. “If the entity that made [a product] ends up with it when it becomes waste, that company will handle it differently.” The company can instead design a product so that it remains in the economy instead of becoming part of the waste stream, he notes. The Ellen MacArthur Foundation was established in the UK in 2010 to accelerate the transition to a circular economy. It offers numerous case studies, including a San Francisco effort called Cradle to Cradle Carpets for City Buildings. Last year, the city passed legislation requiring all departments to use carpeting containing no antimicrobials, fluorinated compounds or flame retardants. Both the carpet fibers and backing materials “must contain minimum amounts of recycled materials and ultimately be recyclable at end-of-use.” Most important: It must be Cradle to Cradle Certified Silver or better. The certification is a globally recognized standard for safer, more sustainable products made for the circular economy. Meantime, the European Union has embraced the circular economy as a boon to job creation and a way to significantly address climate change. By shifting to a circular economy, the European growth rate can be increased by an additional 0.6 percent a year and carbon dioxide emissions reduced by 48 percent by 2030, according to a 2017 report by McKinsey & Company. Just how much of the world’s industries must participate to meet these goals is yet to be determined. “That,” Stahel says, “is the billion-dollar question.”

have a constant return on our investment—including how we spend our time and where we direct our attention?
Right after the election, in late 2016, a warehouse fire in Oakland claimed the lives of many artists. I became aware of how difficult it was becoming to step away and process anything, not to mention mourn. I found that it was only by stepping away that I was able to ask questions about what it was I really wanted and how I could act meaningfully. Both social media and the cult of productivity are seductive, and when we’re caught up in them, we don’t question them. Understanding anything requires perspective and standing outside of it; productivity is no different. Temporarily ascending to a broader, removed view, you might find that you’re struggling in all the wrong ways, or in the wrong direction.
How is “doing nothing” different from meditation?
I think the first step is simply a movement of attention. Addictive as social media may be, it is not difficult for me to move my attention from that to what is happening in physical space. Sometimes this leads to meeting other people; I’ve had great conversations with strangers when we were both peering up at the same tree, looking at the same bird.
What is the relationship between our well-being and being unproductive for a part of each day?
What do you hope people will take away from the message of your book?
How do we go about challenging the forces that are disconnecting us from nature and each other?
Julie Peterson writes from rural Wisconsin. Reach her at JuliePeterson2222@gmail.com.
It certainly shares some of the same goals. But whereas certain forms of meditation emphasize physical stillness, “doing nothing” for me includes things like wandering and observing.
When we’re caught up in the idea of productivity, we’re often not thinking about our own well-being. And yet, the “unproductive” part of one’s day is likely the one in which you remember to take care of yourself or even listen to the needs of your mind and body at all.
I hope it creates a space in which someone might begin to look at the ways they currently direct their attention and how they might want to change that. I also hope it helps people find each other. Rediscovering one’s bio-region or local history is a great way to meet others who might not exist within your social media bubble.

hiropractors are often perceived as back pain specialists, but optimal chiropractic care treats the whole person from the inside-out, starting with the nervous system. This means practitioners can address many conditions that transcend typical expectations. The human spinal column sports 31 pairs of nerves, some corresponding directly to digestive, reproductive and respiratory organs, which might explain why regular spinal adjustments and other chiropractic techniques can be helpful for seemingly unrelated conditions like asthma, chronic headaches, hormonal imbalances and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. A scientific review of 179 published papers focusing on various non-musculoskeletal conditions shows benefits of full-body chiropractic treatment for asthma, infantile colic and cervical vertigo. Results are also promising for middle ear infections in children and pneumonia in seniors. Clinical evidence suggests the nervous system is a cohesive factor in achieving overall wellness. “In chiropractic and holistic
philosophy, the body is considered a selfhealing organism,” explains chiropractic physician and applied kinesiologist Marc Terebelo, of the Chiropractic Wellness Center, in Southfield, Michigan. “The nervous system controls the body, so issues in the toes or fingers may be caused by spinal issues in the neck and low back. Likewise, bladder and menstrual cycle problems can be caused by injury to the low back or pelvic regions.” William J. Lauretti, a New York Chiropractic College professor in Seneca Falls, concurs with the benefits of holistic treatment. “Chiropractors view the body as an integrated unit, and problems in one area might affect a seemingly unrelated area,” he says. “Most chiropractors have a wide variety of treatment approaches to offer, including advice on nutrition, lifestyle, stress management and exercise.”
Chiropractic and Digestion
It’s worth noting that the nerves that innervate important digestive anatomy—from the salivary glands to the stomach down through the intestinal tract—branch off the
spinal cord at various levels of the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine. “This means that chiropractic adjustments given to [the] neck, mid-back, lower back and sacrum are important to optimal digestive function,” says chiropractor Sean Cailteux, of Exodus Health, in Shawnee, Kansas. In his practice, Lauretti has observed better digestion as a positive side effect to regular adjustments. “I’ve had a few patients over the years who reported improvement in digestive problems after chiropractic treatment of the mid- and low back. In some of those cases, the improvement was serendipitous, because the patient didn’t discuss their digestive symptoms initially, only after they noticed the improvement.”
Hope for Headaches and TMJ Dysfunction
Chronic tension headaches and migraines can become the norm for too many individuals, but chiropractic care—including spinal adjustments, nutrition advice and addressing emotional causes such as stress and anxi-
Chiropractors view the body as an integrated unit, and problems in one area might affect a seemingly unrelated area. ~William Lauretti ety—can be key in reducing pain and getting to the root of the problem. “Technically, only headaches with a list of very particular characteristics can be properly diagnosed as migraines,” Lauretti explains. “The cause of many cases of chronic, longterm headaches is often from poor function of the muscles and joints in the neck.” These types of headaches often respond well to treatment focused on restoring normal function to the neck, he says. TMJ disorders can cause painful and sometimes debilitating symptoms, including facial and tooth pain and locking of the jaw. Chiropractic treatments often provide reliable relief. “The TMJ is a very important joint in the body, with thousands of neuroreceptors. TMJ involvements can cause head-
aches, particularly around the ear or side of the head, vertigo, tinnitus and other hearing issues,” says Terebelo. Cailteux notes that aside from experiencing jaw pain and headaches, someone suffering from TMJ disorder may have difficulty chewing, and may experience an audible clicking of the jaw with movement. “Chiropractic adjustments can be particularly helpful, especially when delivered to the TM joint and the neck. Gentle, soft-tissue manipulation of the muscles and tendons of the jaw, specifically the masseter, temporalis and pterygoid muscles, is also a highly effective treatment.” For a true holistic approach and lasting success, Lauretti offers this advice: “Look for a doctor who is willing to work as part of your healthcare team and who’s willing to refer you for specialty care when appropriate.” Marlaina Donato is the author of several books, including Multidimensional Aromatherapy.

Slow Food Takes Root Global Movement on Fast Track by April Thompson
he global Slow Food movement is fast gaining momentum, uniting more than 100,000 people in 150 countries with a shared passion for delicious food and a moral conviction about the people and places that sustain it. It satisfies foodies’ hunger for a deeper appreciation and understanding of their meals’ origins, from farm to fork. “The key principles of Slow Food are good, clean and fair,” says Laura Luciano, a board member for Slow Food USA and Slow Food Governor for New York State. “It’s the opposite of fast food, where you are in and out with no idea where your food comes from or the stories behind it.” Fair, says Luciano, means fair to farmers, and paying a fair wage to workers picking and growing food. “Fair also incorporates principles of equity, inclusion and justice. Good means good for the climate, the Earth and us as individuals. Clean means not using GMOs and pesticides in the food,” she explains. Slow Food has its roots in Italy, where food and wine journalist Carlo Petrini took up the cause in 1986 to halt the homogenous fast food chains encroaching on the country’s rich, diverse food culture. Slow Food USA
has taken off since its founding in 2000 with 150 chapters boasting 6,000 members nationwide. Many convene annually at Slow Food Nations, a food festival for all in Denver, to swap stories, share strategies, celebrate victories and of course, break bread together. The backbone of the movement is its local chapters. “Food has a regional identity, connected to history, culture and family,” says Luciano, whose blog Out East Foodie shares the stories of her Long Island edibles. For Bob Quinn, an organic wheat farmer in Big Sandy, Montana, and the founder of the heirloom grain company Kamut International, the Slow Food movement has been a kind of welcome homecoming and acknowledgment of his company’s efforts to protect workers and nourish consumers. “To me, Slow Food is a return to the roots of agriculture and the soul of organic, because it focuses on the food—the end purpose of agriculture—rather than profits and yields that are the focus of the industrial food system,” says Quinn, author of Grain by Grain: A Quest to Revive Ancient Wheat, Rural Jobs, and Healthy Food. “Slow food

offers an appreciation for farmers’ efforts to improve the soil and the nutrition, flavor and aroma of the foods we grow.” The Slow Food movement also connects producers like Quinn with chefs like Steven Satterfield, author of Root to Leaf: A Southern Chef Cooks Through the Seasons and board vice president of Slow Food’s Atlanta chapter. “As a chef, Slow Food to me means honoring your ingredients and going out of your way to get the freshest, most sustainable, seasonal ingredients,” says Satterfield, who came to Slow Food early in his career as a young line cook interested in the provenance of food and protecting its cultural heritage. At Miller Union, Satterfield’s awardwinning Atlanta restaurant, all dishes are made from scratch, mainly from farms in the region, to support seasonal eating and local growing. Satterfield’s dishes also feature traditional Southern varieties from Slow Food’s Ark of Taste, a catalog of more than 200 culturally significant foods in danger of extinction. One Miller Union favorite is a hummus made from sea island red pea and benne seeds, an ancient variety of sesame originally brought by slaves from Africa to the South Carolina coast and cultivated in hidden gardens as a staple food. Beyond engaging diners, chefs and producers, Slow Food also campaigns for big-picture policy changes, like farm-toschool programs to introduce fresh produce and get kids excited about healthy eating, says Luciano. “Eating is a political act. The choices we make speak volumes about what we stand for,” says Luciano. “We talk about joy and justice. There is the joy in food and the justice and stories behind it. Slow Food tries to marry both of those worlds.”

Add the butter, star anise, peppercorns and salt, and bring back to a simmer. Place the halved bok choy cut-side-down in the pan in a single layer.

Continue to simmer over medium heat until the bok choy is tender, but still has texture and bright color, about 4 minutes. With a slotted spoon, remove the bok choy and set aside, but leave the citrus peels and spices in the pan. Continue to simmer until the broth is reduced by half or more.

Savory Slow Food Recipes
One of the qualities I love about bok choy is how easily the crisp rib absorbs the flavors of whatever it is cooked with. If it is not closely monitored, however, its tender leaves wilt quickly and the rib may turn mushy. I address this issue by quickly pulling the bok choy from the pan when it just begins to turn tender and succulent, allowing the sauce to reduce and intensify on its own. This recipe is perfect with a rice dish or with a delicate fish that could be poached in the cooking liquid for a full meal. Yields: 4 servings 1 cup chicken or vegetable stock 1 orange, quartered, seeds removed 1 lemon, quartered, seeds removed 2 Tbsp unsalted butter 4 star anise pods 12 black peppercorns 1 tsp kosher salt 4 small bok choy, halved and washed Simmer the stock in a large, wide skillet or shallow braising pan over medium heat. Squeeze the citrus into the pan, then drop in the peels.
Taste the sauce for seasoning, then at the last minute, return the cooked bok choy to the glaze and reheat all the way through.
Cauliflower and mustard are both members of the genus Brassica, so it’s not surprising that the seed of the mustard plant is compatible with its big-headed cousin. Try it for yourself in this incredibly simple vegetable roast, which makes a terrific side dish with fish or fowl and is also hard to stop eating straight out of the pan. If you come across the orange, green or purple cauliflower varieties, mix them together for a stunning presentation. Yields: 4 to 6 servings 2 Tbsp whole-grain mustard 1 small garlic clove, minced 1 tsp kosher salt ½ tsp freshly ground black pepper 2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil 1 medium head cauliflower, washed and trimmed into bite-size florets Heat the oven to 400° F. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the mustard, garlic, salt and pepper. Whisk in the olive oil. Toss the cauliflower in the mustard mixture to coat. Spread in a baking dish in a single layer and roast until it’s just tender and lightly browned on the edges, 20 to 25 minutes.

ANIMAL ASANAS Goats on the Yoga Mat
by Yvette Hammett
hen 50 to 60 strangers gather in a barn for their first goat yoga experience, it’s a bit awkward and there’s not much interaction—until the goats come in. “It is an immediate icebreaker, and the place suddenly fills with giggles and laughs,” says Sharon Boustani, whose family runs Gilbertsville Farmhouse, in South New Berlin, New York. There is just something about miniature goats walking around on people’s backs while they do yoga that immediately de-stresses people and makes them downright happy, she adds. It may be fun, but it’s also a form of serious therapy that’s taken off across the nation and around the globe in recent years. Yoga by itself is proven to help with stress and pain relief, better breathing, flexibility and cardiovascular health. Add goats to the mix and the benefits are compounded by the well-documented benefits of human and animal
interaction. A number of studies, like one published in June by the American Educational Research Association, have shown that spending time with animals can lower blood pressure and decrease levels of the stress hormone cortisol. Other studies from the fields of psychology, animal welfare, counseling and anthropology note that these interactions offer additional positive health impacts and can reduce loneliness, boost moods and increase feelings of social support. So combining adorable goats with a physically and spiritually beneficial yoga regimen just made sense to Lainey Morse, of Corvallis,

Oregon, widely regarded as the mother of goat yoga. In 2015, Morse was diagnosed with a disease and was going through a divorce. “I would go out to my barn or out in the field and just be around my goats,” she says. “I wondered why they didn’t use goats for therapy like they do with horses.” Goats, she says, have a sense of calm. “When you are around them, you take on that energy, and it’s hard to be stressed out and have anxiety. But they are also really funny animals. They make you laugh.” She started with goat happy hour at her farm, inviting friends she knew were going through issues of their own. “Everybody left happy,” she recalls. When she discussed it with a yogi friend, goat yoga was born. Morse now has 13 partnerships around the country where others teach the classes and she handles the business end. “For me, it’s still about nature and getting out in nature.” Morse says she’s not quite sure why it took off like lightning, but she guesses it’s just because many people love the interaction. April Gould and Sarah Williams run their Arizona Goat Yoga classes at the Welcome Home Ranch, in Gilbert, Arizona. It is now a major tourist destination for the state. “Three to four times a week, we walk about 150 people out into one of the pastures,” Gould says. A lot of visitors from out of state return every time they’re in the area, she adds. And many Arizona residents come once, and then bring back friends and family.
“People say it’s the best day of their life. It’s something you kind of have to experience to know why it’s so popular,” says Gould. Those that are more experienced can make it as difficult as they want. “And some people just want to play with the goats.” For Bisk Education, an eLearning company based in Tampa, bringing goat yoga to its campus was a way to inspire and de-stress employees. “There is a way to integrate wellness into your corporate programs that makes you a differentiator,” says Chief People Officer Misty Brown. “When it comes to a perk, I want to make sure those investments are memorable. It gives Bisk the reputation as more of a progressive culture.” Boustani calls it an escape experience. “That’s primarily what it is. Yoga in general is kind of geared toward letting go of your everyday worries and trying to come to some peaceful or therapeutic state.” Introducing something so lighthearted to something that many people take so seriously, like yoga, is interesting to watch, Boustani says. “It is nice to see that even dedicated yogis are so open to it.” Yvette C.

hildren, four-legged family members, Thanksgiving overeaters and the occasional squirrel on a branch have mastered an art that eludes most of us, and they engage in it without a shred of guilt. Defying our cultural habit of constantly being on the go and embracing the respite can be an active meditation, an invitation to cultivate uncommon stillness. Answering the siren’s call of a nap might very well be one of the most beneficial acts of self-care we can give ourselves. Both body and psyche crave chill-out times for good reasons. Using study subjects ranging from NASA pilots to emergency room staff, curling up for a 20- to 30-minute siesta has been clinically proven to lower blood pressure, boost immunity, improve motor skills and enhance job performance and creativity. Power naps—the short-but-sweet kind—give us the opportunity to nourish the most neglected part of life, the inner life. Rest-fueled “me-time” can be a daily ritual punctuated with both practical and aesthetic inspiration. Choosing a spot drenched in inviting natural light or close-curtained tranquility and reserving a favored pillow, chair or luxurious coverlet can usher
in blissful time-out. Adding the presence of aromatherapeutic essential oils like lavender, Roman chamomile or tangerine or a vase of simple fresh flowers can signal the ever-diligent sympathetic nervous system to cut back on overtime. Dropping down into unhurriedness like an anchor into port can prompt deeper and longer breaths and offer us the shameless chance to invest in quality daydreaming. Playing recorded sounds from nature—ocean waves, soft rain or gentle wind in the trees—can set the stage for a satisfying nap. Inviting the resident cat or pooch for a sleep-spell can also effect release of beneficial endorphins. Scheduling a nap into the day like any other appointment not only ensures followthrough, but presents a succulent slice of something to look forward to. Putting the computer on sleep mode and turning off the phone signals the brain that it’s time to recharge. Social media interaction and phone chats can wait. The pursuit of well-being does not need explanation, apology or, most of all, guilt. Pleasant dreams. Marlaina Donato is the author of several books.

MINDFULNESS IN THE CLASSROOM
Meditative Training Helps Kids Thrive
by Ronica O’Hara
hen I feel like I really want to get angry and yell, I sometimes, like, take deep breaths. My brain slows down and I feel more calm and I’m ready to speak to that person.” Those self-aware words come from a 5-year-old Los Angeles girl in the film Just Breathe. A 9-year-old boy in a tough British neighborhood forgets about “all the scary stuff ” when he does “petal breathing”— opening and closing his fingers in time with his breath. “If I concentrate on my breathing, the worrying thoughts just go ‘pop’ and disappear,” he confided to The Guardian newspaper. This is the effect that mindfulness training in the classroom often has on students, and it’s key to why it’s happening all over the world—not just in the U.S. and the UK, but in more than 100 countries, including Australia, Taiwan and India. What started a few decades ago as a small experiment in progressive schools is rapidly gathering speed as emerging research documents the strong positive effects of
mindfulness on developing brains. A 2015 meta-review from researchers at the University of Melbourne, in Australia, which evaluated 15 studies in six countries involving 1,800 students, showed three broad outcomes: higher well-being, better social skills and greater academic achievement. They were more optimistic, self-accepting and happier, more likely to help others, more able to focus on lessons and be creative, and less likely to be angry, anxious or disobedient. “Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally,” is how it’s described by Jon Kabat-Zinn, whose pioneering research at Harvard in the 1980s helped kick off mindfulness as a scientifically based, nonsectarian approach to a calmer, clearer mind. It has spread since then into business, health care and professional sports, as well as schools: Googling “mindfulness in education” brings up 116 million links. “Mindfulness offers children the skills they need today to meet the age-old
Mindfulness offers children the skills they need today to meet the age-old challenges of growing up within the new context of social media and often absurdly high expectations. ~Amy Saltzman challenges of growing up within the new context of social media and often absurdly high expectations,” says holistic doctor Amy Saltzman, co-founder and director of the Association for Mindfulness in Education. Mindfulness is now being taught in urban, suburban and rural schools in 50 states. Such programs can be low- or no-cost, structured in many ways, taught any time and conducted without special equipment—important for cash- and time-strapped schools. As a grassroots movement, mindfulness programs run the gamut. Hundreds of schools and districts nationwide have incorporated into curricula such evidence-proven mindfulness programs as those developed by MindfulSchools.org, Learning 2Breathe.org and MindUp.org, which often involve teacher training and structured lessons. Sometimes mindfulness is simply a grade school teacher ringing a bell signaling five minutes of silence, giving children something to focus on with closed eyes: a sound, a bite of fruit, a stuffed animal. A middle school teacher may use a five-minute guided app meditation from Calm or Headspace to settle down students after lunch. Some schools offer moments of silence during the day, a quiet room to go to or an optional class in mindfulness. Others find that teaching mindfulness during “detention” has a soothing effect, offering oft-traumatized kids a rare feeling of peace. “Because everyone has distractions and strong emotions, learning to observe these inner experiences with curiosity and openness is an important part of all children’s education,” says psychologist Patricia Broderick, Ph.D., founder of Learning2Breathe, a mindfulness curriculum for junior and senior high school students. Schools sometimes use parental consent forms to counter concerns about any potential religious implications. Often, a school’s program expands organically as one impassioned teacher draws in others. “The one single factor that determines a program’s effectiveness is the depth and consistency of personal practice of those teaching it,” says Saltzman. In fact, a University of Wisconsin 2013 study found that teachers that practiced a guided meditation 15 minutes a day for eight weeks had less anxiety, stress and burnout during the school year; those conditions worsened in the control group. In Middleton, Wisconsin, high school counselor Gust Athanas has watched as mindfulness exercises have made students calmer, kinder, more focused and feel closer to each other and to teachers: “A number of students have told me it’s the part of the school day they look forward to the most!”

Paws to Consider Best Friends Waiting for Homes
by Julie Peterson
ade Breunig, of Buckeye, Arizona, had lost his marriage, his job and his house. To combat depression, he went to the local animal shelter to adopt the first cat that “talked” to him. As if on cue, a 2-year-old black cat yowled persistently. During the adoption, Breunig learned that “Bubba” had been scheduled to be euthanized. He was saving a life. Fourteen years later, Bubba died, and Breunig knew he would miss the mischievous, playful companion that loved car rides more than most dogs. Crying, but surrounded by his second wife and kids, he realized, “I didn’t save Bubba’s life. He saved mine.”
pressure, ease anxiety or secure companionship can find it all at their local shelter, where homeless dogs and cats are eager to oblige. Emily Bach, public relations and event coordinator at Bishop Animal Shelter, in Bradenton, Florida, has many inspiring stories about adopted shelter animals. “They are often the most devoted pets because they know they’ve been rescued,” she says.
Devoted and Practical
The benefits of the human/animal bond are manifold, supported by an army of studies that speak to pets’ ability to reduce stress, improve mood and even reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Research into animal-assisted therapy compiled by the University of California, Los Angeles, details the positive mental, emotional and physical effects of this natural modality.

Meet Your Match Best Friends Animal Society has a quiz called Paws Like Me (BestFriends.PawsLikeMe.com) to match people with adoptable animals. Shelter workers can also help families select appropriate pets.
Shelters share success stories of animals that get a “forever home”. Unfortunately, hundreds of thousands don’t and are euthanized. Best Friends Animal Society, in Kanab, Utah, is working to change this. By partnering with animal welfare organizations and shelters, Best Friends has a goal to “Save Them All” through an initiative to make all of the nation’s shelters “no-kill” by 2025—which means 90 percent of shelter animals might be saved. Euthanasia will be reserved for failed rehabilitation or when an animal has no chance of recovery from an illness or injury. In 1984, when Best Friends was founded, about 17 million animals died in U.S. shelters annually. As of August 2019, that number is down to 733,000, a nationwide save rate of 76.6 percent. Historically, no detailed data was kept on shelters. “For decades, we have worked in the dark to end shelter killing because we lacked accurate information about the problem we were trying to solve,” says Julie Castle, CEO of Best Friends. The organization recently launched the community lifesaving dashboard (BestFriends.org/2025-goal), a database that anyone can access to help save shelter pets. “With a better understanding of where the trouble spots are and the profile of animals being killed in a community, we can better deploy our collective resources for the greatest lifesaving impact.” Part of the success of the no-kill movement involves increased awareness that kindness toward all species is important. Bach points out that shelter animals are also the lower-cost option for people that want pets; most are vaccinated and neutered before they are adopted out and are often already trained.
They are often the most devoted pets because they know they’ve been rescued.
The outdated myth that shelter pets are incorrigible, unlovable animals with behavioral issues no longer holds. Family circumstances—a change of job or residence, death, divorce or illness—can land a confused and well-loved dog or cat in a shelter. Others become accidental strays or are unceremoniously dumped by uncaring owners. Bishop, a no-kill shelter, places about 100 pets every month, showcasing them on social media, news outlets and at outreach events.
Getting Ready to Adopt
Before jumping in to help save them all by adopting, potential pet parents should research breeds, crunch numbers and think ahead. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) suggests considering several issues:
Lifestyle: Dogs live 10 to 15 years, cats up to 20. Pets should fit the family now and in the future.
Money: Pets require training, food, toys, equipment, medical exams and treatment.
match for every home. Personality is key.
Safety: Pet-proofing a home includes
removing potential dangers and preventing accidental escape through windows, doors or fences. Not everyone can adopt, but anyone can help. Shelters accept donations and most have a wish list of items. Volunteers are a core need at shelters, and it’s work that can quench the thirst for spending time with animals without adopting any of them. Julie Peterson writes from rural Wisconsin.

Pets Promote Health
any studies document the positive influence of pets on our well-being.
Single people that live with a dog have a decreased risk of cardiovascular disease. (Tinyurl.com/DogsAndCardiovascular). Part of the reason for this is likely because dog owners tend to get more physical activity than those without dogs, which makes dog owners generally more fit (Tinyurl.com/NIH-PetsAndHealth).
The demands of life can take a toll on the body. Contact with animals is linked to lower heart rate, blood pressure, cholesterol, anxiety and fear levels, and increased feelings of calmness. Lower levels of stress hormones, such as cortisol, have been shown to help regulate inflammation, which helps the immune system fight off everything from colds to diseases (Tinyurl.com/AnimalVisitationProgram and Tinyurl.com/StressAndInflammation).
In children with autism spectrum disorder, animals help them learn to connect better to others. One study using guinea pigs found that these kids talked and laughed more with peers. There are now therapy programs using

veryone has heard that we Americans are getting heavier: approximately two thirds of our population are overweight (BMI > 25) to obese (BMI > 30). There are zillions of diets out there with various weight-loss claims. Many of those recommend that added sugar average about 10% or less of our daily calories. Thus, entered the non-nutritive sweeteners, which have found their way into everything from diet drinks and foods as well as medications, toothpaste, etc., of all kinds. It’s about a $2 billion annual industry. Do they work on weight loss? Lots of studies have produced mixed results over the years. All sorts of variables, such as age, education, income, weight, sex make for the many mixed results on weight loss. One study recorded that people who drank drinks with non-nutritive sweeteners lost more weight than those who drank plain water – go figure! Do they work on appetite control? Again, various studies showed various results, but it seems that they do not increase or decrease hunger or appetite. Do they increase the risk for type two diabetes mellitus?
Various studies showed various results. The American Diabetes Association and American Heart Association both state that non-nutritive sweeteners may be used to help reduce calories and for diabetes blood sugar control. Adverse effects: rat studies have shown a dose-dependent increasing risk of developing cancers. Human studies using only drinks containing non-nutritive sweeteners showed some possible associations (but not definite causes) with effects on people with congestive heart failure and chronic kidney disease. Foods containing them still need more studies. Studies are also needed to determine if non-nutritive sweeteners affect our digestive microbiota. People with phenylketonuria should not consume anything with aspartame.
There are 7 non-nutritive sweeteners approved by the FDA. They are: •
Acesulfame-K (Brand name Sunett, Sweet One), 200x sweeter than sucrose.
Advantame (not sold separately), 20,000x sweeter than sucrose.
Aspartame (NutraSweet, Equal, Sugar Twin), 200x sweeter than sucrose.
Neotame (not sold separately), 7000-13,000x sweeter than sucrose.
Saccharin (Sweet’N Low, Necta Sweet, Sweet Twin, Sugar Twin), 200-700x sweeter than sucrose.
Steviol glycoside/Rebaudioside A (Stevia, PureVia, Truvia, SweetLeaf, SunCrystals), 200-400x sweeter than sucrose.
• Sucralose (Splenda, Nevella), 600x sweeter than sucrose. William H.

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: Qi Revolution comes to Ft. Lauderdale Convention Center November 23rd-25th. What is your higher vision for sharing this kind of healing with hundreds of people?
DD: Can you bring a Universal meaning to describe what is Qi? JP: Qi is the electric LIFE PRESENCE that beats the human heart and charges the air we breathe. Gong, like Gong Fu, is a REPEATED ACTION to activate higher energy. Qigong generates a powerful magnetic field in the hands and this energy “dilates arteries” healing what it touches.The effects of Qi are profound for increasing circulation and improving endocrine imbalances. Science will discover Qi is related to static electricity and can be harnessed with hand postures.
Palm Beach Edition
JP: I believe when more human beings develop “Qi Awareness” human evolution will go higher. We hold our South Florida event once a year and transform a convention center into sacred space. Our intention is to experience the authentic healing and stress-dissolving practices of Qigong in a strong group energy field. Sound, light and Qi graphics are used to improve learning so everyone can feel what is going on without any previous experience. It’s rare that 300+ people all simultaneously inhale at the same second, while holding the same healing prayer. Many people that attend heal old injuries and nearly everyone is strengthened by the energy. Our vision for this event is to uplift the group energy to the highest level to benefit all who attend. DD: Is there significance to practicing Qigong in large groups? JP: During 1980-1999 the Chinese people gathered for Qigong events inside arenas and stadiums with tens of thousands of people. Dr. Yan Xin led this first wave of Qi awareness with integrity, but other fake masters misused Qigong to protest the government and Qigong
was banned in large group settings. Chinese people had discovered the secret of “Group Energy” and it went beyond the roar of a rock concert or the cheers in a football game. Qigong was a weekly outing in China for two decades and people viewed Qigong as an opportunity to be strengthened and healed while enjoying fellowship with friends. Qi sensations and internal benefits reach into the scientific minds of truth seeking men and women. Where two or more practice Qigong sincerely there exists a larger living field of energy and I believe it’s stronger when more people practice.
DD: The breath work at the Qi Revolution is transformative. Since every person is connected to it, do you believe the answers to healing & overcoming negative emotions are found here?
Breathing is the most powerful skill humans can learn to attune with the spirit of life. Genesis 2:7 reveals, “God breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” After teaching Qigong breathing to groups large and small I would say there is a connection. People report Euphoric vibrational experiences when they do our Breath Empowerment, even if they don’t believe Qi exists. Breathwork is the best Gong Fu, repeated deep breathes will break the veil of darkness and bad thoughts, eventually flooding the body with light energy.
JP: The living electricity felt in the hands of
the healing circle is unlike anything else we teach. After everyone is proficient in using the 9-breath method, our signature breathing technique, we hold hands while doing it many times. The feeling is like an electric current going through everyone’s legs, arms and hands. It feels so very good! Delicious I might say. We focus our mind to God and ask for healing of people we love and send light to noble groups and nations worldwide.
DD: Can one become more peaceful seled. Moreover, prestigious medical journal and increase awareness from the THORAX indicates children who eat Kiwi 3-5 times a week vs. those who didn’t eat any, have breath?
A renown surgeon named Perrin Clark, MD from Daytona Beach, Florida recently attended our national event. He told us he was super-stressed from telling 5 patients (on average days) they had some type of cancer. Dr. Clark’s job was to give bad news to patients and this caused him to hold his breath a lot! He now reports his stress has gone down dramatically since after attending Qi Revolution and learning Qigong. As a result, he attended our trainings and was certified in both our Qigong and Food Healing programs.
a much lower incidence of asthma. My theories have science to back it. Proof is really in whether or not God’s kiwi really helps people breathe. Evidence shows kiwi should be suggested by allergists and breathing therapists to help children with this disease.
*Kiwi’s Effect on Breathing. Thorax J. Respiratory Medicine 2004
Food effects our Qi by becoming our blood and the cells which carry oxygen to our brain. I teach that eating RED FOODS (high in carotenoids) are the best way to stop the oxidative processes responsible for heart disease and brain degeneration. We make smoothies and serve sweet red pepper paste to all attendees at Qi Revolution so they can taste for themselves how delicious natural foods can be prepared.
DD: There are a number of healing routines within the Qi Revolution experience. Do you need to be fit to participate? Can one receive healing attributes if they are out of shape, ill or have other physical impairments? DD: You perform a Global Healing Circle that is legendary. How does JP: People with injuries often experience pain it connect participants using the relief doing Qigong in the first morning prac- 9-Breath Method with an expanded tices. We are okay with people practicing where process? their body is at and provide modified postures for those who need special assistance. People of all ages can benefit from Qigong’s challenge.
DD: You have vowed from the beginning to keep the cost of Qi Revolution in reach for all people and have even gone as far as to offer this healing for Veterans free of charge.You offer CE HOURS for message therapists and nurses for an incredible value. Share with me the importance of putting people over profit.
JP: Qigong is not only for rich or materially
successful people. Qi Revolution is $199 for 3-Days is made affordable to open the “Qi Door” for more people. Nurses & Massage Therapists love our training and earn 24 CE hours when they attend. We allow U.S. veterans to attend free and each year hundreds of veterans do attend and many of them have become our best Qigong instructors.

DD: I’ve seen a shift over the past few years where your focus has really zeroed in on food healing, especially in regards to food science. Why do you feel this is so important in today’s world and how does it relate to one’s personal Qi?
JP: Food is key to excellent health, especially
natural foods made before the inventions of man. Kiwi for example, helps to “Reverse Asthma” in hundreds of students I’ve counOctober 2019 51

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.
