OCA RATON, Fla.– Florida Atlantic University will host an event to celebrate the launch of “The Practice,” a new book by Barbara Schmidt, on Tuesday, May 13 at 7 p.m. in the Libby and Harry Dodson Auditorium in the Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing, 777 Glades Road, Boca Raton. The event, which includes a lecture and book signing, is free and open to the public. Registration is required at fauf.fau.edu/ThePractice. Schmidt, a businesswoman, philanthropist and spiritual teacher with more than 30 years of experience devoted to spiritual development and research, will present excerpts from her new book which offers simple tools for managing stress, finding inner peace and uncovering happiness. “Barb offers readers life-changing spiritual guidance in an easy to follow format,” said New York Times bestselling author Gabrielle Bernstein, “and what makes this book so magnificent is that she has infused her own stories and struggles to help readers connect and learn.” Schmidt has studied with many notable teachers such as Thich Nhat Hanh, Deepak Chopra, Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo, James Finley, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Caroline Myss and Marianne Williamson. Since 2001, Schmidt and the Schmidt Family Foundation have supported FAU’s Peace Studies Program, and in 2005, she helped launch a community outreach series that evolved into her nonprofit Peaceful Mind Peaceful Life. Schmidt remains an integral community partner with FAU’s Peace Studies Program. She will be introduced by FAU President John Kelly and Heather Coltman, dean of FAU’s Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters. About Florida Atlantic University: Florida Atlantic University, established in 1961, officially opened its doors in 1964 as the fifth public university in Florida. Today, the University, with an annual economic impact of $6.3 billion, serves more than 30,000 undergraduate and graduate students at sites throughout its six-county service region in southeast Florida.

Natural Awakenings Publisher Releases The Art of Flow

F

reddie Zeringue, a transformational coach and facilitator for over 25 years, has announced the release of his long-awaited new book, The Art of Flow, available in print and digital form. Known for helping clients achieve breakthroughs in the areas of health, relationships, prosperity and personal well-being, he has distilled vital principles into The Art of Flow, marking a new direction in the transformational field. Zeringue, publisher of the Northeast Florida edition of Natural Awakenings magazine, says, “The point of the book is to bring people into a state of natural flow, where they are able to create their lives in a very dynamic way that overrides resistance and opens up space to let in the limitless bounty of creation. The Art of Flow goes beyond The Secret and other books in the field to transform how we see ourselves and each other, objectively analyzing great teachings from a new perspective and embracing the idea that we are ‘divine creators’.” Universally-applicable and harmonizing with any individual’s personal beliefs or spiritual path, the essentials of the book are practical explanations of concepts we are all familiar with—things we’ve heard so often that we might assume we already know what’s at their core. Zeringue brings them into a new light, illuminating how they work together to dynamically create our lives. The mastery of these principles is profoundly life changing. The book is available on Amazon.com and ArtofFlow.com, which features a FREE audio supplement available for download.

newsbriefs WOMEN EMPOWERMENT: DISPELLING MEDICAL MYTHS

T

he last fifty years have seen great changes in medicine, and being a part of the journey since 1961, I would like to offer a perspective. Women’s’ health has been in the forefront of my practice, and there are two issues about which I would like to focus: thyroid health, and hormone replacement therapy. As we get more and more aware of epigenetics and how everything impacts everything else, we can now almost smugly agree that the dietary, environmental, hormonal, increased toxic load, and emotional connection to thyroid function is real. Yet, the paltry testing and interpretation of those tests have not changed in these last 50 years. It is a given that women experience far more thyroid disease than men: perhaps 10:1. And yet, we continue to measure TSH and occasionally free T4 to assess the health of this power organ located interestingly in the area of the fifth chakra. The testing so essential includes free T3, reverse T3, TPO and thyroglobulin antibodies, ferritin, iodine, vitamin B12, and vitamin D (25 hydroxyvitamin D). And the old values of TSH (0.5-5.5 now in some labs lowering the range to 0.4-4.5) is still absurdly too large a spectrum, the higher the number, the more underactive the thyroid. Those of us practicing functional more integrative medicine desire the range more closely to 0.3-2.0; yet the endocrine world has yet to adopt these more appropriate levels. And even with the ideal TSH without looking at antibodies, and the other aforementioned levels, some 2-3 of every ten women I evaluate have abnormal findings. Adrenal dysfunction measured in saliva is closely aligned with thyroid function and it, too should be evaluated, because one cannot replace thyroid without addressing adrenal fatigue, which is beyond the scope of this writing. We know that heavy metal intoxication, chronic candida from environmental mold, pesticides, gluten sensitivity all impact thyroid health. Interestingly, the more physiological T4/T3 preparation, known as Armour thyroid, was replaced with Synthroid (T4 alone) with the expectation that the body would know how to take the inactive T4 and convert it to the active T3. Our bodies are

magnificent and magical and if left to their own devices could do this, providing we give the necessary cofactors to assist liver detoxification and conversion to the active form. But since we still do not accept the vital role of ingredients provided by pure untainted food and nutrients, we cannot put all the pieces together, and continue the band aid approach to therapy. The important role of compounding pharmacies comes into play here, as Armour thyroid has gone through some struggles with availability and quality, and so many physicians are choosing to have thyroid compounded from porcine thyroid powder under strict regulations, without fillers and additives, often harmful for patients with multiple chemical sensitivities. Which is my segway into hormone replacement for women. One must remember history so as not to repeat it, said Santayana. Back in the 1960s an infamous book written by then president of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Robert Wilson, MD, titled ‘Forever Feminine’ extolled the benefits of Premarin (pregnant mares’ urine) an estrogen which became not only the largest selling hormone, but drug in the industry. This well publicized book by the Wyeth Company who sold Premarin was read by millions of women who flocked to their doctors requesting the miracle hormone that would prevent them from becoming dried up sexless hags, aging with little ability to attract a loving partner. This drug which was produced by torturing magnificent mares and their fouls (that story told most eloquently by PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) became so profitable and ingested by hundreds of thousands of women, and because it was ordered as estrogen alone, approximately four per cent of women developed uterine cancer. Back to the drawing board, our astute forefathers realized that if a woman still had an intact uterus, she required the other important hormone, progesterone, to balance the stimulatory effects of the estrogen. Thus was born MPA (medroxyprogesterone acetate) a synthetic progestogen patentable (operative word here) and it was cleverly marketed as

e e d e s a e s

Prempro. The issue here is that synthetic progesterone has many side effects (see the PDR) and many women began complaining, such that many albeit unnecessary hysterectomies were performed so that women needed only to take estrogen. This is where the medieval solution to this problem originated and continues to his day. We now know that synthetic progestin is actually more carcinogenic than estrogen, and to the credit of the pharmaceutical industry, a more bio identical progesterone capsule, named Prometrium, has been added to the tool kit of my colleagues. And if estrogen, and a more gentle plant based form which we now have in pills, patches, sprays, gels were always ordered with the more balancing natural progesterone, I may not be writing this. But this is not the case. Despite the fact that God gave women two major hormones, estrogen and progesterone, and to a lesser amount, testosterone, most physicians stay stuck in the 1970s thinking that if there is no uterus, there is no need for progesterone, especially since we are most familiar with the synthetic version. My final observation: my profession continues to denigrate bio identical hormones, compounded specifically by pharmacists trained to do so, claiming they can be dangerous, tainted, and found to be dose erratic, according to some critics. Yet for 25 years I have measured hormones in the saliva, and along with a comprehensive thyroid panel, AND most importantly, my patient’s story, I have been able to formulate small, appropriate doses of these hormones, preferably administered through the skin or in the vagina, thus avoiding first pass through the liver and avoiding cytokines and clotting factors which can be affected by estrogen pills. And the one size fits all hormones provided by the pharmaceutical industry cannot come close to addressing each patient’s unique biochemistry. It is time that we release our egos and righteous indignation about whether we are in the conventional or alternative camps of medical practice. We are here to serve our patients, and when we integrate the best of both worlds, those whom we serve benefit. I just had back surgery: not angel dust or acupuncture, though I certainly gave those attention: this is a metaphor for how we need us all.

id you know that our office now has new technology which helps the dentist to detect cavities and gum diseases using a high performance intra oral camera? This technology assists the dentist in detecting cavities leaky fillings, fractures on teeth, and defects of enamel the normal x-rays sometimes do not detect. In the addition to the ability to magnify as high as 115X, the camera uses state-ofthe-art fluorescence technology. The intraoral camera uses white and blue LED light to illuminate the teeth and gums. The unique absorptive properties of the blue light allow the dentist to show cavities, dental plaque and inflammation through different colors. Dr. Samuel L. Klein, DDS now uses this dental technology in all routine dental examinations. All images can be displayed for you to see on a large monitor. The images are stored digitally. Images can be used in “real time” to help understand the presences of any processes behind periodontal gum disease and cavities. Dr. Samuel Klein, DDS has been in practice in the same location for 28 years. We offer each patient a personalized examination and treatment plan utilizing this advanced technology.5601 N.

t may seem daunting to shoot for something as big as living on purpose when daily life seems to take up all of our time and energy. In fact, not doing so can be a waste of precious time and a drain on our energy. Perhaps you have a dream of starting or growing your own business. And it’s now time to focus on achieving that goal. However, you may be wondering what to do next to make this a reality. To counter the tendency to be overwhelmed, here are 3 steps to get you started on that journey. 1. Identify your passion that can be turned into a business. It’s been said many times that if you do something you love that the money will follow. 2. Develop a strategy and plan for monetizing your passion. You want to figure out how that passion can create value for others such that they are willing to pay for your product or service. 3. Determine the specific actions that are needed to turn that plan into a viable business and then set goals and timelines for completing them. As you think about tackling your dream in these 3 steps, you are probably getting excited about the prospect of really making it happen this time! At the center of these 3 steps is you- the person that will have to carry this vision through. The key to success is to support both the vision and the visionary. If the visionary is supported, then the vision can be realized. Here are the steps for you, the visionary. 1. Assess your personal strengths and skills. Not your ability to do that which you love, but your ability to make doing what you love make money. 2. Find ways to fill any gaps that may exist within you that could impact your ability to implement the vision. This may involve changing habits like procrastination and ineffective time management. 3. Decide that you will do whatever it takes to ensure that steps 1 and 2 happen. Our upcoming FREE event sponsored by Center for Spiritual Living Palm Beaches will go a long way toward helping you realize your vision successfully. Friday, May 30th, from 7-9pm, experience Michael Beckwith’s Visioning Process. Saturday, May 31st, from 9am -5pm, learn how to formulate your Vision, Mission and Purpose statements, create a Business Plan, create a Marketing Plan, explore Funding Options, and connect with Professional Support. Active and retired area professionals who want to give back to the community are donating their time and expertise to help make your dreams a reality !

newsbriefs Avoid LEEP or Cyrosurgery with Holistic Treatments for Abnormal Pap Test

A

s the womanly gate through which all of mankind passes, the cervix deserves respect and must be guarded like a crown jewel. One practical way of protecting the cervix is to have annual Pap screening for early detection of potentially pre-cancerous cervical cells. If there is a problem, the utmost reverence, care and effort should be taken to provide healing. Unfortunately, medical treatment for abnormal Pap results is allopathic, one-dimensional and primarily uses external manipulations and surgery to target the abnormal cervical cells alone. Alternative holistic treatments for abnormal cervical cells are now available in Florida with Judith Kaplan, an ARNP specializing in integrative women’s healthcare and natural births. Having undergone special training from leading Naturopathic Doctors, she now offers this multi-pronged approach which targets the underlying causes of the disorder. The treatments aim to improve overall health and immunity, to gently slough off abnormal cells, to promote healthy tissue

re-growth and to diminish or eradicate Human Papillomovirus (HPV) which is associated with abnormal precancerous cells. One holistic treatment plan, called Escharotic therapy, entails application of natural botanical and mineral solutions to the cervix and a regime of herbal suppositories and special supplements that boost immunity and the healing process. These healing treatments can be integrated with conventional treatments with her current gynecologist if a woman chooses. In fact, and integrated approach can often augment the effectiveness of both modalities. The medical recommendations for abnormal Pap tests include increased frequency of Pap tests and repeated biopsies (Colposcopies). If abnormal results persist, the recommendation is surgery that either freezes or cuts off a portion of the cervix with its abnormal cells. Types of surgery include Cryosurgery, Cone biopsy or LEEP. The good news is that these treatments usually eradicate precancerous cells, and stimulate the re-growth of normal healthy cells. Frequently though, the cervical abnormalities reappear after

a year or two, probably due to the shallow one-dimensional approach of the surgeries which target affected cells only. There is also a risk of irreparable damage to the cervix as it is shortened through surgeries, which can negatively impact future pregnancy and birth. A holistic approach to HPV and cervical dysplasia takes into account a woman’s health choices and overall state of health. Strengthening natural immunity through therapeutic compounds and supplements promotes healing from within and are used in tandem with natural substances applied to the cervix that gently slough off the affected cells. Recommended supplements include mega doses of Beta Carotene, Folic Acid, Vitamin C, Zinc and green tea capsules. For lasting results, a woman must also make a shift towards wholesome living: avoiding environmental toxins, infections and tobacco; a healthy vegetable based diet of organic foods; and lifestyle practices that decrease stress and promote healing. Yearly pap tests are recommended by all. Notes: Dysplasia refers to persistent HPV, ASCUS, LSIL, HSIL, CIN 1, 2 & 3, and warts. References: Hudson, T. (2008).

Judith Kaplan, holistic minded Women’s Health ARNP and Certified Nurse Midwife, has been in practice for 25 years and has delivered more than 2,000 babies. Her offices are in Boca Raton, Miami and Oakland Park. She offers Free Consultations to women with HPV or abnormal pap results and to women with PCOS, as well as providing gentle gynecology and natural hospital births.

newsbriefs WOMENS INTUITION… Intuitively Speaking with Deirdre Abrami

W

omen’s intuition is an extra sensory skill that assists with making correct decisions regarding everyday life’s issues. Many women speak about having intuition, but most do not know how to use it. Intuition can be best described as a non-logical, unexplainable sense that most women feel without any reasoning. I call it my gut feelings. It is when you meet someone for the very first time, and you just know they are trust worthy. It is that same feeling that has a mother aware her child needs help. Or, you are driving and you feel the need to make a right turn instead of a left. For most of us we do not know where this wisdom comes from or how it works. Are women born more intuitive? Researchers state that women make decisions more with their emotions and feelings using the creative part of the right brain, rather than men using their logical and analytical left brain. This does not mean that men are not intuitive, just woman have been raised for generations and encouraged to connect with their emotional, creative and imaginative side resulting in better trusting their intuition. How do you know you have not been using your intuition? OBSTACLES period. Your intuition receives information from an invisible life force some call Universe, Source, God, or Energy. If you choose to ignore it, obstacles will begin to show up in your life. As a 6th generation intuitive, I meet with clients privately and at workshops to assist them with finding clarity to their life’s questions. Many clients over the years have asked if they have a black cloud, bad luck, or a spell on them. Nine out of ten times, their series of “bad” occurrences are from not listening to their own intuition. For instance, let’s say you hate your job. Your “gut” told you months ago to start looking for another job, but you ignore this hunch. Six months later, your company is down-sized and you are fired. If you had listened to your intuition, you would have found the ideal higher-paying job with less stress and with no down time. Intuition channels through you in many different ways: seeing, knowing, feeling,

and hearing. You can learn to tap into this inner wisdom and create the life you want by following these four simple steps: 1. Connect with your intuition. Be fully present, and make time to connect with your own intuition. Grab a journal or notebook. Choose a quiet place you feel comfortable with no distractions. Play tranquil, spa-like music to assist you with being still and present. 2. Invoke intuition. Invoke your intuition by asking your inner guidance to assist with receiving clarity to your questions. Your invocation can be short and precise. Example: “I am here and ready to listen and connect with my inner-wisdom. Please communicate with me loud and clear so I understand. Thank you in advance for your words, your wisdom and guidance. And so it is.” Begin taking deep breaths in through your nose, hold your breathe for a couple of seconds and breathe out through your mouth, expanding your lungs. Repeat three to four times. Once you feel centered and relaxed, allow your mind to wander. Do not judge or control your thoughts, just allow the process. 3. Intuitive messages. Following your meditation, immediately open your journal or notebook. Place your pen on your journal or notebook, record the date, and allow your pen to move freely on the paper. Do not judge or edit your writing. Use this practice to connect with your unconscious mind. You may experience the pen moving by itself, don’t fear it, just allow the energy

and your intuition to flow. Spend the next 10 minutes writing whatever comes to into your consciousness. Do not judge it, just write what ever you feel, hear, see or know. If your ego or mind distract you from your creative flow, just bring your focus back to your breath. 4. Intuitive Action. Once you receive intuitive messages, you must take action in order for them to work. It does not matter how many messages you receive if you do not act upon them. An indication your intuition is working, is when you receive same answer to your question multiple times. For instance, you ask the name of your life partner, and you hear “John” when writing in your journal. You ask the Universe “please show me multiple times that John will be my life partner.” Later on that day you hear on the radio “Jon” Bon Jovi being interviewed. Next you see a sign on the road: “St John’s Church,” and then you meet a man named “John” at an event a week later. Once you learn to practice this daily, you will be able to ask and receive clear intuitive messages with little effort. The more you practice, the better you will become in trusting this process. Soon enough you will no longer need to write down all of your intuitive thoughts. Remember, your intuition can help you with any of your life’s issues: love life, health, relationships, career and much more. Need further assistance with developing your intuition? Deirdre Abrami is an expert in this field. She has coached and taught thousands to achieve a greater awareness with their intuition. Join Deirdre for a intuitive development twohour class this month. Or, join her for the threeday Certified Angel Healer Practitioner Weekend Workshop, June 27-29th in Boca Raton, which will guarantee taking your intuition to a new level. Deirdre Abrami, 6th Generation Psychic Intuitive is an internationally known spiritual teacher, angel expert, intuitive counselor, and former radio host. After a life-threatening illness in 2003, her passion became her purpose. Today she offers private readings, intuitive development workshops, intuitive business consulting and public speaking.

newsbriefs THE MIDWIFERY DIFFERENCE

M

other’s Day is coming soon! It is traditionally a time for each person to revere his or her own mother, to thank her for giving birth to him or her and for all she does or has done to take care of the family. Whether or not your mother is strong and maternal, she did give birth to you – no small feat. Childbirth is one of the cardinal life transitions for women universally. Women transit from being girls or women to being mothers through the act of childbirth. In the state of Florida (and many other states as well) childbirth can be attended by a licensed midwife, a certified nurse midwife, or a doctor. Midwife means “with woman” – it is the oldest profession in the world, as midwives have traditionally been the ones to care for women in that vulnerable moment when they are about to bring forth new life. It is a scary time for any woman even if it’s not her first baby, as it is an opening and letting go with no guarantees. Midwives accompany women on that journey and safeguard their passage in order to provide expertise in normal labor and delivery and quick and appropriate action should it become apparent that things are outside the normal range. One very important difference between midwives and medical doctors is the acceptance of the medical model of care as it pertains to women’s bodies and physical processes. Most doctors practice within the medical model of care which attempts to define physical processes in terms of scientific formulas. They do so in order to understand, quantify, and document the process and determine the course of action should that process deviate from the formula. The following is an excerpt from an article that was written by Judith Rooks and originally published in the July/ August 1999 edition of the Journal of Nurse-Midwifery (now the Journal of Midwifery and Women’s Health). “Midwifery and medical obstetrics are separate but complementary professions with different philosophies and overlapping but distinct purposes and bodies of knowledge. Physicians are experts in pathology and should have primary responsibility for the care of pregnant women who have recognized diseases or serious complications. Midwives are experts in normal pregnancy and in meeting the other needs of pregnant women— the needs that are not related to pathology. In most countries, midwives have primary responsibility for the care of women with uncomplicated pregnancies. Midwifery focuses on the normalcy of pregnancy, and its potential for health. Birth is viewed as a natural process that has profound meaning to many people and should be treated as normal until there is evidence of a problem. The possibility

20

Palm Beach Edition

of complications is not allowed to preempt all other values associated with the woman’s experience of bearing and giving birth to a child. Midwives are experts in protecting, supporting, and enhancing the normal physiology of labor, delivery, and breast-feeding. The medical management model focuses on the pathologic potential of pregnancy and birth. As a specialty of medicine, the main focus of obstetrics is diagnosis and treatment of pregnancy complications and management of diseases that affect pregnant women and the fetuses they carry. Attention to the pathologic potential of pregnancy is vital because, although most pregnancies would proceed healthfully without any medical intervention, serious complications and diseases are not uncommon and can be deadly. The midwifery model is consistent with the purposes, philosophy, and knowledge base of midwives, but it is practiced, to varying degrees, by others, including some obstetricians and family physicians, [just as the medical model is practiced by many CNMs.] Yet, an important part of the practice of both obstetricians and midwives is not fully accessible to the other. Even though no definitive line can be drawn between the care provided by midwives and physicians, there are important general differences between the midwifery model and medical management. The midwifery model establishes the pregnant woman as an active partner in her own care and recognizes her as the primary actor and decision-maker. A major part of the midwife’s role is providing the information and support the woman needs to make her own decisions. A midwife helps the woman identify problems and gives her information, options, and the authority to make her own choices. Many midwives avoid saying that they “deliver babies”; rather they “attend” the laboring woman and “catch” the baby, recognizing that the woman herself, through her labor, delivers her own child into the world. Physicians are more likely to see themselves as the key decision-makers, and most say that they “deliver” babies. The midwifery model of care makes the woman and her life the central focus of prenatal care. A large part of the midwife’s attention focuses on the pregnant woman as a unique person, in the context of her family and her life. The midwife is interested in the woman’s expectations and experience of her pregnancy—her perceptions and beliefs; her knowledge and opinions; her questions and worries; her satisfactions and dissatisfactions; her comforts and discomforts; her desires, decisions, and actions; and the effect of all these on her pregnancy, fetus, labor, delivery, breastfeeding, postpartum recovery, and development as a mother.” At the Red Tent and midwife360, we strive to treat the whole woman; we will listen to her and seek to offer advice that is consistent with her expectations. We are interested in her wellness in general, her gynecological health being just one part of her whole being. We are taking new patients and will accept most insurances. Our services include traditional and holistic gynecology, childbirth services including prenatal care, childbirth education, prenatal massage, prenatal yoga, birth at home or Wellington Regional Medical Center. We also offer other services at The Red Tent including vaginal steam treatments, massage, Mayan abdominal massage, infertility counseling and treatments, acupuncture, naturopathic consultation, energy work, and a small boutique with educational materials and products for women and babies.

newsbriefs Local Doctor to Present Integrative Pain-Relief Program— the Subject of His Award-Winning Book—for People Suffering from Arthritis, Injury and Pain

W

hat do most conventionally-trained physicians do when they have severe pain? They see a doctor! This is what Internist Daniel Nuchovich, M.D. first did when faced with pain from an injury he sustained while playing soccer. He soon found out, however, that modern medicine didn’t have the answers—all they could do were to take x-rays, and then prescribe anti-inflammatories and pain-killers for the symptoms. Meanwhile, the cause of the pain was going unaddressed and, thus, the pain only became more severe. His wife, a nurse who at the time worked for a chiropractor and had seen so many people achieve relief under his care, suggested to her husband that he seek chiropractic help. Dr. Nuchovich, like many conventionally-trained physicians, was extremely resistant and said “No.”It was only when his orthopedic doctor said that modern medicine could do no more and his only option was neck surgery that Dr. Nuchovich woke up to his reality. As a doctor, he was aware of the very serious risks and complications of spinal surgery, and decided he had to take his wife’s advice and visit the chiropractor. Then, on his very first visit, he received an adjustment that virtually eliminated his pain, changing his mind, his life and medical practice forever! The Palm Beach Pain Relief System: A Clinically-proven, Natural and Integrative Approach to Healing Chronic Pain, Arthritis & Injuries is the culmination of Dr. Nuchovich’s remarkable journey of healing and subsequent exploration that lead him to create a revolutionary medical treatment program that combines the best of modern and natural medicine. The program, which incorporates a variety of therapies including chiropractic care, acupuncture, physical therapy and dietary modification and draws knowledge from his studies at Harvard Medical School’s Center for Integrative Medicine, has an extremely high success rate in his clinical practice. “Pain and inflammation cannot be healed with conventional medicine alone,” says Dr. Nuchovich “these conditions can only be addressed successfully with a multi-faceted integrative plan where natural therapies are the focus.” The book, which was recently awarded a Silver Prize from the prestigious Nautilus Book Awards, not only addresses the multitude of pain conditions, it describes the process of pain and inflammation, how to reverse it, and what kind of support is needed to help the body regain balance. One of the most unique aspects of Dr. Nuchovich’s program is that he and his team of medical professionals meet regularly to analyze and diagnose conditions and create individualized treatment plans. “We don’t believe in a cookie-cutter approach to healing chronic pain,” states Dr. Nuchovich. “What we’ve learned is that healing is an art, and each person needs a slightly different approach. This is the personalized care that we believe in and provide that makes our program so successful.” Dr. Nuchovich will be presenting his program on May 20th at 6:30pm at Nutrition Smart, and May 27th & June 6th at 6:30pm at Jupiter Gardens Medical Center. Call (561) 746-1205 for more information and read more about Dr. Nuchovich’s book at www.palmbeachpainreliefsystem.com.

newsbriefs Ancient Chinese Secret to the Fountain of Youth Aging gracefully, naturally and with confidence should be practiced more often by young and mature women. Aging is natural, inevitable and no one is spared from the physical signs. We have the tools and knowledge to healthfully support the natural aging process but we really just want to look good. In fact the trend has become to look better and better with every birthday. Women want to look fresh, flawless and younger but the lengths at what women would do to achieve an improved “look” is frankly, quite painful. The 2013 National Plastic surgery Statistics show that of the 15.1 million cosmetic procedures, including cosmetic surgery, rhinoplasty, breast augmentation, etc...., 13.4 million including botox, fillers, lasers, microdermabrasion and chemical peels. All around Ouch! As a nation since the year 2000 we have thankfully put off cosmetic surgery and have relied on the minimally invasive procedures to maintain a more natural appearance. Overall, it is obvious that pain and discomfort are not a deterrent from women fighting for a youthful appearance. There are many reasons why women choose cosmetic procedures and getting into the nitty gritty about the influence of

media and negative social influence is not the premise of this discussion. The bottom line is that all women should know that they are uniquely beautiful. Most recently celebrities like Jennifer Aniston, Angelina Jolie, Sean Connery and Madonna have brought attention to Cosmetic Acupuncture. Acupuncture is a form of ancient Chinese medicine in which thin, fine needles are inserted into the skin at specific points on the body to regulate the body’s natural rhythms. Acupuncture brings the body into balance boasting benefits for pain, backache, migraines, fertility problems and now, cosmetic enhancements. Cosmetic acupuncture treatment and practicing good lifestyle choices are a package deal and a great alternative to the raging national stats. An average consultation is 30-45 minutes of assessing the patient’s habits, tendencies and daily routine. According to Chinese Medicine our physical health, emotional state, and spirit are reflected through the skin, particularly in our complexion and skin of the face. Internal imbalances created by poor diet, chronic stress, emotional strain, etc. may result in skin rashes, rosacea, acne, premature aging or other acute skin conditions. The skin is the body’s largest organ and the only organ that we have to

take care of from the inside and the outside. We look the best when our body’s physical constitution and emotional state are healthy and balanced. Cosmetic acupuncture is a specialty treatment that offers women a softer and more supple appearance which many agree to be an improvement and enhancement to their natural aging process. This ancient Chinese beauty secret improves the general condition of the skin, reduces the appearance of wrinkles and firms the jaw line to produce a radiant appearance. Acupuncture treatment stimulates circulation and collagen production. In comparison to the body acupuncture needles, the needles for the face are very thin and much shorter. There are many needles required to enhance the face and neck but none of them will produce the pain associated with injections or lasers. Body points are also used to strengthen the integrity of the relationship between the skin and internal environment. The face and neck treatments provide softening of expression lines on the forehead and to laugh lines around the eyes. The jawline is more defined, the pores become less visible and there is improved muscle tone in the cheeks and jowls. Increased circulation is a benefit from all acupuncture treatments and this gives the patient a refreshed, brighter and more supple appearance. The insertion of the needles into the dermis fosters increased collagen production and the influx of circulation to the neck tightens the skin. The neck responds very quickly and receives benefits with every treatment. Most cosmetic acupuncture protocols are 5 weeks or less of continuous treatment. The insertion of the points on the body bring about sensations of tingling, heaviness, an ache or sometimes a “zing” which is best compared to an energetic current. It’s quite lovely to experience a “zing” followed by complete relaxation. Once the needles of the body and face have been inserted the patient is encouraged to relax in a peaceful setting for 30 minutes. The experience of an injection vs. cosmetic acupuncture is hardly comparable. Cosmetic improvement and enhancements from acupuncture are simply a complement to an already beneficial healthcare system. Drinking plenty of water and limiting your exposure to stressful situations, poor food choices and smoke will promote a more youthful appearance in conjunction with any cosmetic procedure. Excessive stress, an unhealthy diet and poor lifestyle choices will

We believe that every woman has the inherent knowledge to be her own doctor. It is our job to educate and advise and above all, listen to women to discover her story about her body. We offer the following services: contribute to premature signs of aging. Both cosmetic acupuncture and minimally invasive procedures will enhance your appearance however the ancient Chinese medicine route offers general health benefits all while avoiding harsh chemicals. The cost can be anywhere from $100+ per treatment and the total cost for the protocol is similar to that of receiving injections or laser treatment for a full year. Patient’s may choose to schedule maintenance visits once every three months to support the protocol and their overall health. The complete protocol can be repeated as requested by the patient after a full year has passed. The protocol is also available to treat the abdomen and offers tightening and firming. When choosing the technique to address the signs of aging women should weigh their options and dig deep “beneath the surface”. There will always be those who would rather take a quicker route and kudos to them. In any case it is best to review all of the options.

newsbriefs Agape Healing Arts is proud to announce the arrival of doTERRA Essential oils

E

ssential oils have been used for thousands of years as a healing method all over the world. We all know that smells trigger very strong responses in our bodies especially our mental/emotional state but did you also know that essential oils can be used to treat very physical conditions? Clary Sage, Geranium and Lavender are all helpful in balancing female hormones to relieve PMS symptoms. Oregano, Eucalyptus, Melaleuca and Frankincense all help to decrease inflammation while Oregano, Thyme, Melaleuca and Clove are great antifungal oils. Did you also know that good quality essential oils can be ingested and used internally for various ailments? Adding 1-2 drops of Lemon oil into a glass of water is a wonderful, gentle way to cleanse and mildly detox. Try adding a few Oregano and Basil oil drops to a home-made salad dressing to turn it into an antibacterial and antifungal healing food. Lavender is a well know essential oil used to treat stress, tension and insomnia. The sedating as well as stimulating effects on the nervous system by some essential oils can indirectly aid in lowering or raising blood pressure as well as normalizing hormonal secretion. Beginning in May every Tuesday evening 6-7pm@ AGAPE YOGA STUDIO: Gentle AromaYoga Class with Aromatherapy Charka Meditation. Start with aroma, move through a gentle yoga sequence and finish with a guided chakra meditation with essential oil aroma.

Connected with Optia

P

aranormal Cristovão Brilho, born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, channels Doctor Fyeer, who is “a subtle manifestation which comes from the Optia system”, located at 195 billion light-years away from Earth. Cristovão has left his career as a lawyer to dedicate himself to spiritual healing.Here in Florida he offers twice a month free healing sessions in Miami and once in West Palm Beach. (The next free healing sessions will be May 6th &10th – Miami, and May 7th – WPB). Hundreds of people search for him to go through a spiritual surgery. In it, the paranormal uses a crystal quartz, 1 cotton and the power of his hands as instruments. There are no incisions and no bleeding. His paranormal activity started when he was 4 years old. At that time, he was already hearing, seeing and speaking with these beings from Optia. Cristovão started doing surgeries when he was 15 years old, being a small proportion in relation to what he does now. At present, he does around 19,000 treatments each month, between the people he sees in person and treated at a distance. People often wonder if anyone can be healed, no matter the illness they may have. At this, Cristovão answers: “I don’t know if you may be cured. It is an invisible criteria which is maintained under secrecy, and I cannot explain why “A” has been cured and “B” has not. So then nowadays I don’t get frustrated when I don’t cure someone. I simply do. If I can help, it is good. When I can’t get to help, I know I tried.” Call 786-295-8665 ww.myenergyhealing.com

newsbriefs Dancing Makes you Healthier, Smarter and Happier

A

nd you know it, when you see it in the smile of those who dare to take the first dancing step towards their happiness. Dancing is extremely beneficial, scientifically proven. Mind, body and soul. Get healthier! Dancing is a fun way to exercise, a great way to strengthen bones and muscles, maintain a healthy weight improve balance and stay healthy in general. Studies found that people who started waltzing could breathe better and improved their quality of life, more than with other exercises; dancers reported better sleep, mood, sexual desire and ability, higher energy to pursue other hobbies and goals and a bigger disposition to do housework. What about getting smarter? A major study conducted by the Albert Einstein College of Medicine examined several forms of physical and cognitive activities and found that dancing had a 76 percent reduction in the risk and affects of dementia. When we dance our brain has to be constantly alert and creative, making different intelligent choices in split seconds. This integrates several brain functions at once – kinesthetic, rational, musical and emotional. Freestyle social dancing is the best way to explore and develop all this functions. You have to use your full intelligence when you are moving on the dance floor in both lead or follow role, dancing your feet to that fun foxtrot or salsa. Ready to be happier? Tango lessons help people beat their blues. When you move your body, your brain releases endorphins –pleasure chemicals- that make you more joyous. When you focus on your body movements, you are free from your critical mind start gaining self-confidence. Your body then adapts to this, regulates the levels of serotonin and dopamine and changes you into a happier mood all together, connecting you to a world of music and creativity, wonder and enchantment, a happier inspiring world. Since dance is a social activity, connecting with other people also helps with the feelings of isolation that people who suffer from depression.

newsbriefs Holistic Healthcare for the Childbearing Year: Combining natural therapies with practical solutions

S

o you’re pregnant, congratulations! Your heart is full of visions of a beautiful natural birth that will empower you to be the strong woman and mother you long to be. Your mind on the other hand is laden with worry and fear of the unknown and the “what if’s” that may arise in the process of pregnancy, labor and birth. Yet in spite of all the anxious thoughts in your mind, you always return to your heart and its deepest desire to give birth the way nature intended. Now is time to set yourself up for success! Begin by building the perfect “dream birth team.” It is essential to choose a healthcare provider, such as a homebirth midwife, nurse midwife or doctor, who will support you and share in your vision. Make sure your philosophies match up, which is a must for success. I’m sure by now you have read several books about pregnancy, birth and baby. Perhaps you have enrolled in hypnobirthing or childbirth education classes and maybe even wrote out your vision of the perfect birth in your very own birth plan. Even with all of this education and preparation you still feel a little fear of the unknown During pregnancy, every mother wants to protect her unborn and do her best to

26

grow a healthy and happy baby. No pregnant mommy really wants to take in any chemicals or synthetic medication. There are no safe drugs. This is why holistic healing in the form of Acupuncture, ATMAT- Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy, Essential Oils, Yoga and Meditation are perfect blend for this special time in a woman’s life. Acupuncture has been around for thousands of years. It is a safe and effective option for women who don’t feel comfortable taking potentially harmful drugs during pregnancy. The use of acupuncture may ensure a healthy pregnancy and easier delivery. Some acupuncture points are used to relieve anxiety and increase blood flow. If you have an interest in maintaining a healthy pregnancy and having a safe delivery then you may be interested in acupuncture as it is a safe, affordable and effective holistic treatment for conditions such as heartburn, psychological problems, morning sickness, fatigue, edema, hemorrhoids, constipation, rhinitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica, back pain and a variety of other problems that may arise. Many women use acupuncture to help when their baby is breech or to induce labor when the due date has past. Other women use acupuncture to help them deal with the

Palm Beach Edition

napalmbeach.com

pain of labor while others use it for postpartum issues like mastitis, postpartum depression, fatigue, excessive lactation, and other issues. For optimum health and wellness it is recommended to receive acupuncture on the same schedule as prenatal care; once a month till 28 weeks, every other week till 36 weeks, and weekly until the birth of the baby. If there were pre-existing health care issues then a more frequent schedule may be needed. As for postpartum care, you can visit your acupuncturist on a regular monthly maintenance plan or on an as needed basis depending on the issue at hand. Another simple and effective holistic healthcare technique is ATMAT, The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy. This fabulous non-invasive massage technique have been known to relieve many of the ailments that you may encounter in your pregnancy, labor and birth. During pregnancy you may experience improved digestion and absorption of nutrients, decreased edema, increased relaxation, improved sleep pattern and an enhanced loving bond with your baby, who also will enjoy the benefits too! As your uterus grows, these techniques help alleviate round ligament pain, along with other aches and discomforts that frequently come with pregnancy or a sacrum and pelvis that may be misaligned. ATMAT for support during pregnancy and labor have been found to reduce the amount of hours a first time mother spends in labor by half. It is also a powerful aid in pelvic floor recovery after birth. Please visit www. arvigotherapy.com for a full description of this marvelous healing work. Essential oils are perfect for pregnancy, birth and baby! They are safe and gentle, especially when compared to synthetic medications. Essential oils reduce nausea, aches, and anxiety and they can help with more serious issues, such as infection or elevated blood pressure. Many women feel their bodies and babies are healthier as a result of using essential oils during pregnancy, and that pregnancy is more comfortable. Discuss your needs with your healthcare provider.


Start with small amounts and use common sense. The list of discomforts that essential oils can relieve naturally are many; acid reflux/ heartburn, anxiety, breast tenderness, congestion, constipation, depression, edema/swelling, fatigue, headache, hemorrhoids, high blood pressure, insomnia,itchy skin, muscle cramps, nausea, perineum prep, preterm labor, sciatica, stretch mark prevention and UTI-urinary tract infections. Make sure the essential oils you choose are certified therapeutic grade essential oils. This means that they are100% pure plant extracts, that they contain zero fillers, pesticides, chemicals, or artificial ingredients. They work quickly to relieve pain, soothe emotional distress and are an effective defense against viral and bacterial infections. Great news is they are nonhabit forming and have no side effects! I use dōTERRA Essential Oils in my practice. dōTERRA means “gift of the Earth” and that is exactly what these plant essences are. Mother natures gifts to us for health and wellness. So remember, when labor begins, it is time to leave the fear-laden thinking mind behind and descend into the deepest part of your heart where only love resides. Over thinking at this point in the process will only increase pain perception and decrease precious blood flow. Prepare in advance an essential oil mist for an easy birth which will be a relaxing blend for active phase which can include lavender, wild orange and peppermint. A second mist can be prepared that will be energizing for when you need an extra boost during transition. This blend can include Wild orange, Bergamot, Lavender and Clary Sage. You will experience a renewed sense of accomplishment on the most important day of you and your babies lives! It is possible to experience natures “love cocktail” as your natural hormones and endorphins flow through your unmedicated blood. Many women have reported to me and I myself have experienced an amazing feeling like a “natural high” that lasts for days after the empowering experience of birthing your baby safely and naturally from a place of love and trust rather than fear and tension. It is a feeling you could not have imagined as you look into your babies eyes for the first time. You will fall in love all over again, a feeling that you will never forget.

newsbriefs 14 FASCINATING, FUN FOOT FACTS “As humans became the dominant species, we began to stand up straight even before we begin to think straight and, in the process, our 2 feet with their 52 bones, 66 joints, and 200 assorted muscles and tendons have influenced not only our language, but also our culture, our politics, and our wellbeing.” — from Leonardo’s Foot by Carol Ann Rinzler

1) There

are 206 bones in the human body. Push back your chair, stand up and look down at your feet. You’re now looking at 52 of those bones. Leonardo da Vinci described our feet as “a masterpiece of engineering and a work of art.”

Yellow Umbrella Shannon Kincaid When Shannon Kincaid was 2, her mother noticed that she liked to draw on whatever was handy—Zwieback toast, rocks, concrete or even charcoal briquettes. She was presented with a box of Crayolas, which she called, “craylolas,” and has been creating art ever since. Kincaid, who is also an accomplished singer and recording artist, has painted commissioned portraits of luminaries throughout the country that include Tom Landry, Mickey Mantle, Mary Kay Ash, Byron Nelson and June Lockhart. She frequently works with interior designers and businesses to create custom mosaics, murals and finishes for residential and commercial spaces. Kincaid’s oils, pastels and watercolors, whether representational or impressionistic, are imbued with a sense of serenity and joy, reflecting her belief in the healing power of art. One of her favorite quotes is by the author Henry James [1843-1916]: “It is art that makes life, makes interest, makes importance. And I know of no substitute whatever for the force and beauty of its process.” View the artist’s portfolio at ShannonKincaid.com.

“Toe: a part of the foot used to find furniture in the dark.” — Turkish proverb

2) The English language is filled with references to the foot: • Sometimes we “set off on the wrong foot” • The bold “jump in with both feet” • To be successful we “put our best foot forward” or “start off on the right foot” • Hesitant people have “cold feet”; decisive people “ put their foot down” • In a hurry? “Hot foot it!” • If someone refuses to give us the right answer, we “hold his feet to the fire.” “Who you know will get your foot in the door. What you know will keep your foot out of your mouth.” — Unknown

3) During a typical day our feet withstand a cumulative force of over 500 tons. 4) There

are 250,000 sweat glands in each pair of feet, secreting a half-pint of moisture daily.

5) Your foot increases 1/8 of an inch in length every two years after age 50. 6) The average person takes 8,00010,000 steps daily, about 60,000 weekly, the equivalent of more than 4 times the earth’s circumference in a lifetime - about 115,000 miles. The feet strike the ground 1,800 times for every mile walked — you do the math!

“Think of the magic of that foot, comparably small, upon which your whole weight rests. It’s a miracle, and the dance…is a celebration of that miracle.” — Martha Graham

7) There are over 300 ailments that can plague your foot. Foot issues are the third most common ailment after the common cold and tooth decay. The risk for foot issues is 3-4 times higher for women, due to the shoes they wear. A predisposition for some foot issues such as bunions and hammer toes can be hereditary. 8) Redness in feet can be caused by a host of maladies from infection to circulatory problems. 9) Each foot has two pulses, one on the top of the foot and one near the inner ankle bone. 10) Correctly fitted shoes should not require “breaking in.” Wear athletic shoes for the sport for which they were designed. Each has built-in protection for specific movements, e.g., tennis, golf, walking,

running, cycling. One style does not properly fit every activity, and injury can result from choosing the wrong shoe for the activity. “Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm.” — Abraham Lincoln

11) Flat feet do not hinder athletic performance; in fact, many medal-winning athletes have this condition. 12) Children with foot issues should be taken to the podiatrist every six months. Some foot issues in children will disappear with age. 13) Reflexologists are taught that the soles of

the feet have 10 reflex zones, linked to every body organ, gland and part of the body. By applying specific finger and hand techniques to those zones, Reflexologists can profoundly affect every part of the body. Come experience a session and find out for yourself!

Qigong Teachings on Fitness and Food Reaching Your Highest Energetic Potential in One Lifetime (Part 2 of 2) by Qigong Practitioner Jeff Primack

Q

igong is about breath mastery. The best schools emphasize breathing to remove blockages and build a surplus of energy. Through technical training in abdomen placement, you can increase your body temperature and blood circulation on demand. When someone lays hands on another person while doing tumo breathing, it can send profound waves of healing qi into that person. “God formed man of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” Genesis 2:7 Does it weaken our connection to Spirit if we are breathing shallow? Scripture suggests a connection with being alive and breath incoming through our nostrils. What if we breathed consciously and deeper all day? Qigong is about getting high, naturally. Alcohol transforms the mindstate, yet also destroys the liver. Qi

has no side effect except making you feel full of vitality. Its highs are beyond words. With focused practice most people can move qi, causing a mild to intense euphoria. Qi, being free, abundant, and right under our noses, make it the ultimate ally to rise above life’s obstacles and reduce stress. Qigong Strength Training is nurturing to qi instead of taxing like some traditional exercises. If you have old injuries, you can practice Qigong. We use “Holding Qi” postures like Horsestance to build the root chakra and leg strength. When doing HyperThrows we use fast followed by slow brushing movements which work wonders for circulatory issues, building speed/strength and giving a burst of energy. Yin and Yang alternating movements open arteries to expand blood flow beyond that which traditional exercise is capable. Anyone can do Qigong Strength

Training, even the severely injured. Mike Maier, retired fighter pilot and martial arts seeker, was so badly injured he couldn’t hold his arms above his head for more than ten seconds. He came up to me at our 2000 person National Qigong Conference to complain of his discomfort. As we were talking, I advised his body was adaptogenic and building new neurons, preparing his arms for the next time he would be holding the postures. Six months later Mike became an advanced teacher of our Qigong Strength Training. I personally watched him do 200 pushups, prerequisite for passing that certification; he couldn’t do even one pushup before meeting us! The belief is qi moves blood and possibly helped move circulation into his torn shoulder along pathways that were previously blocked. This is an example of how Qigong can heal. Enlightenment requires a body that can hold light. Fitness is not only about muscles; it’s about the nervous system. Your lower abdomen is the seat of what Qigong calls your “Dan Tien” and it’s your center of gravity housing the majority of vital energy. It wasn’t until I learned pranayama breathing that I experienced being one with the Universe. My whole body filled with blissful electricity that hummed inside me. For a time I was one with spirit and matter and I knew I was going to dedicate my life to teaching how to access this bliss naturally. Yogis describe nirvana as a mind-state where we access our Super Consciousness. From these higher vibration states we can receive divine insight and creativity. Food is the key to the qi! Diseases like autism, cancer and Alzheimer’s are increasing at an alarming rate. Fruits, vegetables, tonic herbs and medicinal mushrooms contain phytochemicals that unlock our body’s endocrine system and act as sparkplugs to the immune system. Unfortunately, many people do

not get enough of them. Phytochemicals are most concentrated in the parts of the food that we often throw away: the seeds, stems, skins and rinds of the fruits and vegetables we eat. Many eat the right foods, but throw away the parts with all the “medicine.” For instance, we blend the avocado “with the big seed” in a high-powered blender along with other good tasting fruits and veggies. The avocado seed is tasteless, has the life force potential to create a huge tree, and more soluble fiber than any food for scrubbing plaque out of the arteries. Qigong teaches the principle ‘specific foods REVERSE specific diseases.’ Asparagus with its ridiculously high glutathione can help the body reverse cancer and improve phase-two detoxification. Bitter melon is a blessing to the diabetic, but normally hard to eat with its bitter taste. That is no longer a problem with the scrumptious bitter melon recipes we have worked hard to make for the diabetic community. We recently held a special seminar and served many of these recipes to the attendees. A few people were fighting over who got to eat more bitter melon curry.

When freshly steamed Asparagus with Avocado Seed Hollandaise Sauce was served, people were licking their plates. Smoothies are amazing for healing and taste awesome, however, cooked food opens the channels of qi life force and increases absorption of many nutrients. Get educated and learn food-based healing protocols. Supreme Science Qigong Center offers a new CEU approved seminar that includes a five-course food healing dinner. Food and fitness go together, so we combined the best of our teachings into a weekend seminar that includes a dinner party on Friday evening. Tickets are fashionably affordable: $99 for two days training and dinner. Amazing value has always been our secret, and we are honored to share this wisdom in a fun and experiential conference. Eat from the tree of life; avoid the surgeon’s knife. Take a deep inhale and follow God’s trail. OM Jeff Primack has studied with many Qigong masters from all over the world and has trained 50,000 people in live Qigong seminars since 2003.

Merciér Pelvic Massage Boosts Women’s Fertility

A

new, noninvasive infertility treatment has met with highly favorable results. In a recent study published in the journal Midwifery Today, 40 of 48 women between ages 28 and 42 that underwent two or more sessions of Merciér Therapy achieved pregnancy within the first year; 32 of those used the method alone (no other artificial fertilization/insemination techniques). The four-year study was presented at the 2013 World Congress of Low Back and Pelvic Pain. The Merciér Method was developed by Jennifer Merciér, a midwife and holistic women’s health practitioner. The regimen includes six hours of pelvic organ massage manipulation, along with a supplement program and continuous monitoring. She explains, “Our protocol is a gentle and noninvasive visceral manipulation of the female reproductive organs that helps to increase general organ mobility and blood flow, which enhances optimal function.” A documentary on the protocol, Fertility: The Shared Journey with Merciér Therapy, premieres this month (MercierMovie.com).

ew research has found that if a mother drinks cow’s milk during the period that she is breastfeeding, it raises her infant’s risk of experiencing skin allergies. The study, published in the Journal of the Medical Association of Thailand, followed 62 mothers and their infants from birth through 4 months of age. Researchers from Bangkok’s Mahidol University assembled the mothers and infants into two groups. Mothers in one group drank cow’s milk during the first four months of breastfeeding; the control group did not. Eight of the children with mothers drinking cow’s milk had skin allergies, versus two of the children in the control group. All of the mothers exclusively breastfed their infants throughout this period. An earlier study published in the British Medical Journal followed 124 mothers, 97 of which breastfed their babies. Of those that breastfed, 48 drank no milk or other dairy products and 49 drank milk. Infants in the milk-drinking group experienced 21 cases of eczema, while the no-milk group had only 11 cases. Overall, between the breastfed and non-breastfed infants, the breastfed infants had lower incidences of eczema regardless of the mother’s diet.

Healthy Homemade Infant Food Reduces Kids’ Allergies

A

study published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology reports that infants that were fed more homemade foods comprising a higher percentage of fruits and vegetables were less likely to develop food allergies. In assessing youngsters of the same age, researchers from the University of Southampton Medical College, in the UK, followed 41 children that had developed food allergies by the age of 2, alongside 82 non-allergic infants. After tracking the toddlers’ diets with food diaries and conducting allergy testing, the researchers found that infants fed more of the healthier homemade diet had a significantly lower incidence of food allergies as toddlers.

Vitamin D No Help for Bone Mass or Hip Fractures

U

niversity of Pittsburgh researchers that followed 29,862 women for 11 years have found that supplementing calcium with vitamin D does not reduce hip fractures. The study, published in the Journal of Women’s Health, found that women taking calcium plus vitamin D had as many hip fractures as women taking a placebo. Women supplementing with more than 600 international units (IU) of vitamin D per day also had a 28 percent higher incidence of breast cancer. Because hip fractures are linked to a reduction in bone density, these findings are compounded by a review of research published in The Lancet, which established that vitamin D supplements typically taken with calcium did not increase bone density among elderly adults. The review analyzed 23 studies among 4,082 participants, 92 percent of whom were women.

MULTIVITAMINS WITH SELENIUM COUNTER HIV

A

study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association showed that a daily multivitamin supplement with selenium significantly slows the advance of HIV among those with the virus. The researchers tested 878 asymptomatic, HIV-infected people over two years that had never taken antiretroviral medications. The test subjects were split into four groups, with members of each receiving separate medications—multivitamins, multivitamins plus selenium, selenium alone or a placebo—for five years. The multivitamins contained vitamins B, C and E. Those given multivitamins plus selenium experienced a 54 percent reduction in low counts of a critical immunity cell factor (called CD4) compared to the placebo group. This group also experienced a 44 percent reduction in other events known to accompany the progression of HIV, including AIDS-related deaths. The researchers concluded: “In antiviral, therapy-naive, HIV-infected adults, 24-month supplementation with a single supplement containing multivitamins and selenium was safe and significantly reduced the risk of immune decline and morbidity.”

Roundup Toxin Accumulates in GM Soybeans

A

study published in the journal Food Chemistry tested soybeans grown from seeds that were genetically modified (GM) to be resistant to the herbicide Roundup. It compared these with organic soybeans and soybeans from non-GM seeds. The chemical and nutritional analysis of soybean samples from 31 different Iowa farms found the GM soy contained significantly higher levels of the toxin glyphosate, the central chemical in Roundup, than both the organic and the conventional non-GMO soybeans. The organic soybeans contained no glyphosate, plus significantly higher levels of protein and zinc, as well as lower levels of saturated fats.

May is National Bike Month, and more universities continue to commit to bicycling as a sustainable, healthy and environmentally conscious transportation choice. Recently, Harvard University joined Princeton and Yale as an official Bicycle-Friendly University (BFU), and the League of American Bicyclists designated 14 new BFU members, expanding the program to 58 colleges in 30 states across the U.S. with more to come. When New York City opened registration for a public bike-sharing program, Citi Bike, more than 5,000 people signed up within 30 hours. Similar demand for more cycling options is happening across the nation where shared bicycle programs are taking root (see Tinyurl.com/Top50BikeFriendliestCities). The popular Washington, D.C., Capital Bikeshare program began operating in September 2010, and is now the nation’s largest, with 200 locking docks able to accommodate more than 1,800 bright-red bicycles. As in many programs, people can sign up for a short-term stint or an annual membership using either a credit card online or at a station kiosk. Then they can unlock a bicycle and return it to any station within the system. All rides under 30 minutes are free, after which escalating fees kick in, encouraging people to make short trips and to keep more bikes available for other riders. For more information, visit BikeLeague.org.

Solar Surge

Global Rise in Sun-Generated Power Last year, the U.S. joined Germany, Italy, China and Japan in producing more than 10 gigawatts of solar production nationwide. Now, other countries have awakened to the opportunity and are on their way to catching up. The popular Scandinavian retailer IKEA has sold $10,000 solar panels in 17 British outlets. Peru recently started a National Photovoltaic Household Electrification Program to connect 2 million of its poorest residents with solar power. In the first phase, 1,601 solar panels were installed to power 126 impoverished communities. The plan is to install about 12,500 photovoltaic systems for 500,000 households at an overall cost of $200 million. Earth Hour India is helping citizens to switch to solar energy in villages that previously had no electricity. Woodlands stores, in partnership with World Wildlife Foundation-India, has launched a collection drive across the country, inspiring individuals to donate to help light up more than 100 households in three villages in Madhya Pradesh with solar power. The residents had traditionally depended on forest resources for their energy needs.

Sinking Reptiles

World Turtle Day Sounds Alarm Since 2000, people around the globe have celebrated World Turtle Day, held this year on May 23, to increase respect for and knowledge of the world’s oldest creatures. Susan Tellem, co-founder with Marshall Thompson of American Turtle Rescue (ATR), states, “These gentle animals have been around for about 200 million years, yet they are rapidly disappearing as a result of the exotic food industry, habitat destruction and the cruel pet trade.” They believe that turtles may be extinct within 50 years and suggest ways to increase their chances for survival for future generations: n Never buy a turtle or tortoise from a pet shop; it increases demand from the wild. n Never remove turtles or tortoises from the wild unless they are sick or injured. n If a tortoise is crossing a street, pick it up and gently place it on the other side

in the same direction it was headed. n Write legislators about keeping sensitive habitats preserved. n Report cruelty or illegal sales to a local animal control shelter. n Report the sale of any turtle or tortoise less than four inches long, which is

illegal throughout the U.S. For more information, visit Tortoise.com or Facebook.com/AmericanTortoiseRescue.

Forests Preserve Trees Rescue Urbanites from Dirty Air

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, poor air quality can irritate the respiratory system, reduce lung function, inflame and damage the cells that line the lungs, make lungs more susceptible to infection, aggravate asthma, aggravate other chronic lung diseases and cause permanent lung damage. U.S. Forest Service researchers have discovered that the urban forests in 10 cities across the country save on average one person a year from pollution-related death. In New York City alone, that number increases to eight people per year. The scientists recommend that people everywhere plant more trees. Source: AmericanForests.org

Greening Garbage

Activist Turns City Food Waste into Rural Soil Jeremy Brosowsky had an epiphany at a Milwaukee, Wisconsin, greenhouse a few years ago that set him on a more sustainable path: “What if we could take our garbage and grow food in it?” He was in the Midwest to learn about urban agriculture at Growing Power, the pioneering urban farm of McArthur Genius Fellow Will Allen, and was considering starting a rooftop agriculture business. Allen’s emphasis on the importance and elusiveness of fertile soil intrigued him. “If you don’t dramatically improve the soil, you cannot grow food in cities,” Brosowsky realized. His solution was to create Compost Cab (CompostCab.com), a Washington, D.C.-based service that picks up and delivers urban food waste to local farms for composting. Nearly 100 cities already divert food waste from landfills, but Brosowsky emphasizes, “Composting is not just about waste reduction. It’s about food production, education, jobs and creating social benefits.” He hopes to roll out Compost Cabs in other cities.

Information Overload

Organic Food Labeling Causes Confusion A recent Harris Poll of 2,276 U.S. adults showed that concern for the environment is growing, but Americans may not be ready to spend more for organic food. More than half think that labeling food or other products as organic is just an excuse to charge more. Yet more than half of respondents also believe that organic foods are healthier than non-organic. At the same time, only 23 percent know what the term “dirty dozen” means in regard to organic food; it’s the Environmental Working Group’s annual list of foods consumers should always buy in organic form due to high pesticide levels in conventional farming.

Radical Fuel

Three Automakers Roll Out Hydrogen Models Toyota has announced that it will market a hydrogen-powered car beginning with the 2015 model year, and Hyundai has also committed to rolling out its fuelcell Tucson model next year. Honda has already begun leasing its hydrogenpowered FCX Clarity to customers in California. Each of these vehicles can travel about 300 miles without a refill (three times the range of the hybrid Chevy Volt in battery mode), and reach a top speed of about 100 miles per hour. A refill takes just a few minutes, and because the hydrogen is used to produce electricity, the cars drive without the roar of an internal combustion engine. The cost of hydrogen-fuel-cell vehicles is expected to continue to fall and eventually match that of conventional cars by 2023.

tion, “What are you not saying yes to?” pushed Teague to take a leap of faith—close her psychotherapy practice and enroll in a filmmaking class. Teague recognizes that a deeper wisdom activated her response. She observes, “The individuals I was counseling about their restless desire for something better mirrored my own discontent, and my restlessness was an emotional response to what was emerging. “Today, I no longer concern myself with making the right decision. I trust that whatever the circumstances are, I need to listen, observe and reflect, because ‘now’ contains information for my next step,” she advises. Amanda Owen, counselor, coach and author of Born to Receive: 7 Powerful Steps Women Can Take Today to Reclaim Their Half of the Universe, has studied the state of receptivity that Teague references. Owen explains, “Receiving is a dynamic and productive state. When the body is relaxed and the mind and nervous system are calm, we become receptive and can feel and intuit subtle information contained in the energy received from external and internal environments.

Trust Your Intuition Listen to that Still, Small Voice and Let it Lead You by Linda Sechrist

What if you could consistently tap into answers to life’s problems when you need them, knowing deep down that you are on the right track and that the decisions and choices you are making are the correct ones?

O

ur body is a wellspring of priceless wisdom. Yet heeding our innate voice seems constantly tested as society distracts us with the busy acquisition of external knowledge and rewards more visible work. Those used to focusing outwardly over-stimulate their five senses and so tend to disconnect from their body’s deep innate intelligence—our sixth sense, also known as intuition. The resulting joylessness, discontent, isolation, depression and illness have sent millions in search of a real solution that discerning experts believe already exists within. Our ultimate guide to the fountain of personal health and happiness, they believe, could well be our own intuition.

Changing Directions

For years, Katie Teague, producer of the documentary film, Money & Life, lived with the consequence of sublimating her intuitive impulse. “I felt a restless itch in my soul,” relates Teague, who intuited that life was prompting her to change careers so she could use her talents in a more meaningful way. The vision of her 94-year-old self lying on her deathbed and faced with the ques-

“Our parasympathetic nervous system is engaged when we’re in this listening state. In contrast, rushing through the day engages our ‘fight-or-flight’ sympathetic nervous system. Busyness and mind chatter drowns out the valuable information that intuition provides,” Owen notes. An intuitive energy therapist, Marilyn Eppolite strongly relies on intuitive guidance in her southern New Jersey practice, believing it emanates from her body’s intelligence. “I listen and it’s always present,” she says. Eppolite shares an example of a time she received a clear image and perceived the bodily sensations of a grieving small child from a female client that a psychotherapist had referred. “When I described what I was sensing, her tears flowed and she also connected to the feeling,” she says. “It provided the needed breakthrough she needed to access her feelings and move forward in therapy.” Eppolite is keenly aware when roadblocks—busyness, willfulness and a fearful, restless mind—create interference. “These feed each other and can rarely be separated. I can’t hear or feel my intuition when my energy and attention are willfully directed outward,” she observes. Abandoning the drive for personal control and surrendering to stillness is how Eppolite signals her body’s intelligence that she’s ready for whispers of guidance. “I sense that surrender as strength and trust that the information received is for my greatest good, even if I don’t fully understand it,” she remarks. “Discernment is necessary because deep wisdom frequently comes in segments that I must piece together and put into action before more of it bubbles up from within.”

INTUITION UNLEASHED Spend time with your feelings: Write down how you feel about your job, relationships, house, health and what’s going on in the world. Build and strengthen feeling receptors: Choose one feeling and spend the day with it. Notice every time you see that feeling expressed in yourself or someone else. Don’t judge it or form an opinion about it; just notice. Receive everything: Pay attention to what you are feeling. Don’t worry about what you will do with what you feel or your thoughts about those feelings. Just receive them. You can decide later what you want to do with them. Maintain a flexible “thermostat”: When you want to freak out or shut down, check in with your feelings instead. Be present, engaged and genuine. The feeling and associated intuition need your attention and the present is the time to attend to them. Source: Adapted from Born to Receive, by Amanda Owen

Contraceptive Pill Chill Dangers Include Cancer, Strokes and Fatigue by Kathleen Barnes

F

or more than 50 years, women have appreciated the freedom that birth control pills offer. They simply take a little pill every day and rest easy, fairly assured that an unplanned pregnancy won’t occur. However, there’s actually a lot not to love about “The Pill”, especially its long-term side effects. “The sexual freedom that women have fought so hard to obtain has been won at a terrible price,” advises Naturopathic Doctor Sherrill Sellman, of Tulsa, Oklahoma, author of The Hormone Heresy: What Women Must Know about Their Hormones. That price includes blood clots and even death from heart attacks and strokes in young women. As early as 1963, an article published in the Journal of the American Medical Association linked The Pill to venous thrombosis, or blood clots. By 1968, at least one cancer journal, CA: A Cancer Journal for Clinicians, had linked cancer to the use of the steroid hormones contained in oral contraceptives. In 1973, Scandinavian researchers warned of the link between oral contraceptives and strokes. “In December 2002, the U.S. government published its biannual Report on Carcinogens that added all steroidal estrogens to the list of known human carcinogens,” says Sellman, “The gravity of

this finding cannot be overstated: All estrogens used in HRT [hormone replacement therapy] and oral contraceptives have now been proven unequivocally to cause cancer.” Yet, regardless of the many downsides, The Pill remains the most common method of birth control worldwide, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, with usage by 16 percent of married American women. Elsewhere, users include 29 percent of British women and 40 percent of women in France and the Netherlands.

Ross Pelton, a registered pharmacist, certified clinical nutritionist and author of The Pill Problem. Oral contraceptives deplete more bodily nutrients than any other class of drugs, says Pelton, who blogs regularly at NaturalPharmacist.net. However, he adds, women taking The Pill even as long as 10 years may not notice any obvious health problems. “Maybe she’ll first notice a lack of energy, but doesn’t connect the dots and realize that magnesium, B12 and numerous other nutrients involved in energy production are depleted,” he explains. The nutrient-depleting effects of The Pill were recognized as early as 1975 in a study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, but it carried no recommendations for replacing them. Some of these nutrients are essential for the production of brain chemicals, called neurotransmitters, including mood-elevating dopamine. An affected woman can become depressed, a condition closely linked to the use of The Pill, according to a German study published in 2013 in the journal General Hospital Psychiatry. The Pill’s steroidal hormones also reduce the body’s natural accumulations of disease-preventing antioxidants,

Women that decide to keep taking The Pill should add an array of specified supplements to counterbalance the nutrient loss, advises Pelton. Replacing nutrients should, in the long term, neutralize the negative effects of The Pill, even cancer and blood clots, he assures. Better yet, say Sellman and Pelton, stop

taking The Pill and switch to safer forms of contraception. It may take months or even years for the nutrient imbalances to be fully corrected, so start now.

Natural Contraceptives

Although no natural forms of estrogen are suited for birth control, safe and effective natural forms exist, advises women’s health expert Holly Lucille, a naturopathic doctor and registered nurse in West Holly-

wood, California. She cautions against the potential risks of using estrogen patches, shots and vaginal rings, and recommends avoiding anything that contains estrogen. “Not using The Pill doesn’t mean you have to rely on withdrawal or the rhythm method, both of which are notoriously unreliable,” says Lucille, preferring what she terms “barrier methods”, like diaphragms, cervical caps and male and female condoms. She notes, “Cervical caps are just as effective as The Pill and you can put them in and leave them a little longer for a bit more spontaneity.” Female condoms are even more convenient, she explains: “They fit much like a diaphragm and they can be left in place as long as eight hours.” Instead of potentially toxic spermicides, Lucille recommends using lemon juice, which, she says, is equally effective.

by Gail Condrick aking up on the morning of a big presentation to secure city funding for a new park, you’re confident that you’ve done your homework: You’ve prepared handouts, memorized key points of an environmental impact study and lined up community supporters. Opening the closet presents a different kind of challenge: What’s the most effective way to dress?

Palm Beach Edition

Wardrobe consultants that apply the principles of feng shui to clothing believe the jacket we choose to wear carries as much impact as our words. Clothing pieces and accessories selected with conscious awareness and intention can bring us into harmony and balance, energize our life and transmit subconscious messages about our values. Feng shui clothing stylists believe the five elements of nature—wood, fire, earth, metal and water—connect in an unending cycle of harmony that keeps the world in balance. Following an authentic and harmonious lifestyle connects us with this cycle and the environment in a more natural balance of human motion and planetary sustainability. As pioneering stylist Evana Maggiore observed in Fashion Feng Shui: The Power of Dressing with Intention, “I came to the conclusion that clothing is your body’s most intimate environment and energetically influences your life in the same way that your home and business décors do. Body coloring and shape, style, personality, lifestyle, goals and clothing design can align perfectly

with the colors, shapes, substances and energies of feng shui’s five elements. Because feng shui connects divine energy to physical form, I realized I could dress my client’s spirits, as well as their surfaces.”  Fashion Feng Shui, Maggiore’s international corporate legacy, maintains that combining intention and the five elements with awareness of our personal style attracts what we desire. Holistic image and lifestyle consultant and lead trainer Andréa Dupont, of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, states that the first step is discovering our “essence”, or primary element. “You can’t dress yourself until you know yourself. I ask clients, ‘If you could change one thing about your life, what would it be?’ Once we establish an individual’s inner strengths and core element, the results can be life changing.”   

Green Choices

For Denise Medved, of Hendersonville, North Carolina, owner of Feng Shui Style, wardrobe consciousness shows respect for our individuality and the environment. “When I choose to dress in natural fibers such as cottons, leathers, silks or wools, or their vegan complements in manmade fibers, it represents the life force of plants and animals and builds qi, or energy,” says Medved. She suggests assembling an outfit embracing three of the five elements. “A water/wood/fire triad might be black, woven, silk trousers; an organic, cotton, floral print shirt; and a red, recycled wool jacket. Personalizing this with the surprise of grandmother’s yellow stone pin on the lapel adds creative flair and earth and metal elements.” Nature’s jewelry energizes and circulates qi.

Reduce, Reuse and Recycle

Practicing the three basic tenets of sustainability together with principles of feng shui keeps our wardrobe and closet resonating with life. Consultants agree that a wardrobe representing the five elements allows endless possibilities of creative combinations and reduces the need for having to keep up with new fashion trends. Shopping for such treasures at consignment and thrift stores, plus estate sales, allows us to reuse and repurpose clothing, energizing our budgets, closets and attitudes. Recycling items that pack closets and no longer suit our needs frees space and energy to create a wardrobe that is authentically ours. The Practical Encyclopedia of Feng Shui, by Gill Hale, also contains helpful advice for bringing out an intended inner message and making a statement. The color green conveys the wood element, or individuals that are public spirited and energetic. Red suggests fire, the color of inspiring leaders. Supportive and loyal earth personalities gravitate to khaki, while resolute, metal people may select grey. Natural communicators that view life holistically will be reflected in the water element of black. A feng shui philosophy provides guidelines for living in harmony with the natural world and in conscious awareness of life. Each choice expresses a stylistic living intention that will be noticed by the world. Gail Condrick is an archetypal consultant and Nia Technique faculty member. Connect at GaelaVisions.com.

Whoa! to Limitations Therapeutic Horseback Riding Strengthens Kids by Cyndee Woolley

ach “Zachman” Aldridge was born healthy, but at just 10 weeks, he was hospitalized at the hands of his birth father. Suffering from a brain aneurism, partial paralysis and multiple broken bones from shaken baby syndrome, Zach’s mother, Rebekah, was told that he might live for a year. Rebekah’s hope for a miracle was granted as her son’s life extended into weeks, months and years. Yet, at 4, the effects of the injury still prevented Zach from walking or talking like other children. “While some people are resigned to leave special children like Zach confined to a wheelchair, therapeutic horseback riding gives them more options and improves their quality of

life,” advises Kim Minarich, executive director of Southwest Florida’s nonprofit Naples Equestrian Challenge therapeutic riding program. A medical examination ensures a child is qualified for safe participation. During his first lessons, riding instructors had to prop up Zach’s head using “boppy pillows”. However, after just a few months, the Aldridge family saw dramatic improvements as the boy began speaking and telling his horse to “trot on.” Next, Zach began walking, a surprise to all. His growing strength had worked to overcome the paralysis and the gentle rocking motion of his therapeutic riding sessions gently pushed his displaced hip back into place, ultimately enabling him

to take steps on his own. Zach’s achievements are not unique. Life-changing milestones like this are common occurrences at the 850 nationwide therapeutic riding centers registered with the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH) International. Now in its 21st year, Dream Catchers, at the Cori Sikich Therapeutic Riding Center, in Toano, Virginia, is one such center celebrating its many success stories. Kendall Lecker, a PATH Internationalcertified advanced instructor, describes the rapid progress of a new 6-year-old student living with autism as illustration. In his first session, he slumped over in the saddle and struggled to hold himself up; by his third session, he was sitting up straight and confidently giving commands to his horse. “Often, our riders start with insufficient core strength and may not be able to hold themselves upright, something the average person takes for granted. But, in a relatively short time, most riders can see dramatic improvements,” says Lecker. Both Naples Equestrian Challenge and Dream Catchers have achieved premier accreditation by demonstrating the highest levels of training, safety standards and quality controls in the industry developed to protect the riders, staff and volunteers. Feedback from approximately 56,000 participants nationwide, including nearly 41,000 under the age of 18, show that therapeutic horseback riding helps participants in five key areas: Normalizes muscle tone. Riding a horse helps children of all abilities build core strength and exercise muscles that they may not be able to work from the confines of a wheelchair. Increases flexibility and relaxation. The natural rhythm of a horse’s gait provides a relaxing effect on tense muscles and can gently rock joints back into place. It’s a unique therapeutic benefit not easily achieved through traditional physical therapy. Improves coordination, balance and strength. Completing tasks like picking up an object, riding across the arena and placing it in a bucket helps riders develop hand/eye coordination. The movements also help improve balance and strength.

“The riding center gave me a place to realize I wasn’t the only one with challenges. It was a place that I could go to and be normal for part of the week.” ~ Tiffany Billings, a college student with cerebral palsy Promotes spatial orientation and fine motor skills. Working side-by-side with their assigned volunteers and horses and reaching for objects from a different perspective than usual helps youths develop their spatial sense and fine motor skills. Enhances self-esteem, self-confidence and self-control. Riders are encouraged to give verbal commands to their horse during sessions, which effects a command of vocabulary and boosts confidence while they bond with the horse. While the documented benefits are derived from personal testimonials rather than clinical studies, the positive results for children like Zach are indisputable. Meanwhile, therapeutic horseback riding is gaining increased acceptance in the medical community as more doctors are recommending this life-changing activity for their patients. PATH International spokesperson Cher Smith says, “Our mission is to help certified centers provide safe access for all individuals living with special needs.” For more information, visit PathIntl.org.

Funny Tummy? Probiotic Foods Can Fix a Troubled Gut by Kathleen Barnes

Gas, bloating, stomach cramps, diarrhea and constipation—each of these digestive issues indicates an imbalance of “good” and “bad” intestinal bacteria.

C

hronic digestive discomfort is distressingly common. More than 60 million Americans suffer from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), notes Dr. Mark Pimentel, director of the Gastrointestinal Motility Program at Cedars-Sinai Hospital, in Los Angeles, and author of A New IBS Solution. Many are too embarrassed to mention it to their doctor, so they suffer silently and learn to live with it.

Multiple Culprits

While digestive distress can visit most of us occasionally, regular bouts have increased due to high-stress lifestyles and unhealthy diets, according to Dr. Dustin James, a St. Louis, Missouri, gastroenterologist and author of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Digestive Health. “Getting home late after a stressful day, eating a high-fat meal and then going to bed is a recipe for problems,” he says. James advises a food-free interlude of four to six hours before bedtime and notes that prescription and over-thecounter heartburn medications can actually worsen the problem over time. Pimentel, citing his own research, also suggests that even a minor case of food poisoning may unbalance digestive bacteria enough to cause problems for years. “We think food poisoning leads to bacterial overgrowth,” says Pimentel. In his clinical experience, James says about 10 percent of

Palm Beach Edition

napalmbeach.com

IBS cases can be connected to the food poisoning theory. Although such cases are typically treated with an antibiotic, rifaximin, many experts ironically attribute bacterial overgrowth to the use of antibiotics. All antibiotics, taken for any reason, indiscriminately kill both good and bad intestinal bacteria, ultimately creating unbalanced bacteria colonies in the digestive tract, says James. “There can be bad longterm effects,” he advises. James’ antibiotics theory is affirmed by a major Australian review of current research on the links between antibiotics and intestinal bacterial overgrowth.


Sugar is another culprit as are antibiotics in dairy products and meats, which can also aggravate digestive problems. Sugar feeds the growth of unfriendly bacteria and yeast and antibiotics kill friendly bacteria, contributing to imbalances. The U.S. obesity epidemic has even been linked to digestive problems. In a study published in the journal Frontiers of Public Health, researchers at the University of California-Berkeley warn against long-term exposure to antibiotics through their widespread use in the dairy and meat industries. One animal study from Washington University, in St. Louis, showed that intestinal bacteria tend to extract more nutrients—and more calories—from the same foods when eaten by obese animals than when ingested by thinner ones. This helps explain why obese people tend to stay obese without heroic measures.

Good Food Solutions

There is considerable agreement that probiotics—live bacteria such as those contained in fermented foods like quality yogurt—help rebalance beneficial bacteria in the digestive tract and ease ailments that include IBS. Due to U.S. food regulations, yogurt is routinely pasteurized, which kills its probiotic benefits; conscientious suppliers then add active digestive microorganisms, like Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus, back into their products. “Check yogurt labels for specific names of the species and a certification that it contains live cultures,” counsels Maria Marco, Ph.D., an assistant professor of food science at the University of California-Davis.

Coconut yogurt may be preferred by those with dairy-free diets. Dairy is acidforming and can be difficult to digest. Many fermented foods can provide the same probiotics to ease digestive woes and restore a healthy balance of the right bacteria. Sauerkraut, rich in Lactobacillus and other strains of healthy bacteria, is at the top of the list. It’s easy to make super-healthy sauerkraut at home with shredded organic cabbage and salt. Other fermented foods to put high on a natural probiotic list include: miso, kefir, tempeh, soft cheese, kimchi, sour pickles and sourdough bread. James recommends two daily servings of high-quality yogurt or other fermented foods to obtain the 2 to 5 billion live bacteria needed to restore gut health. “Every human is unique; try different products in search of what works,” he says. Probiotic supplements may be more effective for people with serious digestive distress that need higher bacterial counts and the product label may provide specifics of the bacteria and strains. “For example, Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG is a strain that has been proven to be effective against antibiotic-induced diarrhea,” Marco explains. High-quality probiotics usually require refrigeration to keep the bacteria alive. In addition, there are many non-fermented foods, including certain juices, candies and energy bars, with specific strains of bacteria added that have probiotic effects. Kathleen Barnes is the author of a wide variety of natural health books including 8 Weeks to Vibrant Health, with Dr. Hyla Cass. Connect at KathleenBarnes.com.

Simple Sauerkraut Recipe It’s easy to make a healthy batch of sauerkraut in a glass quart canning jar in as little as three days. Organic cabbage, finely shredded 1 Tbsp sea salt or other natural salt Mix salt and cabbage together in a large bowl, squeezing the salt into the cabbage. Cabbage will become limp and begin to release its juice. Tightly pack cabbage and juice into a clean glass canning jar. Keep the cabbage submerged in liquid; if necessary, use a smaller canning jar loaded with marbles or stones. Cover jar with a clean cloth or piece of cheesecloth and keep it in a cool place. Jar contents will begin to bubble, signaling that fermentation is taking place (note that conventional cabbage additives may interrupt the fermentation process). It’s ready to eat in three days, but keeps well for several weeks in the refrigerator. Primary source: TheKitchen.com

Volleying Life Gabrielle Reece on Her Balancing Act by Christine MacDonald

G

abrielle Reece has been called one of the world’s most influential women in sports and one of its most beautiful athletes. In her 20s, she built a career as both a fiercely competitive pro volleyball player and a fashion model. Since then, she’s written books and become an expert on women’s peak fitness and overall well-being, all while raising three daughters with her husband, Hawaiian surfer Laird Hamilton. Plus, she volunteers for environmental organizations such as the National Resources Defense Council and RainCatcher, a nonprofit bringing safe drinking water to people in need.

How do you find time for and balance all the roles you play in life—athlete, spouse, parent, businesswoman and volunteer? Juggling life is hard for everyone. Living day-to-day, taking care of kids and paying bills is a challenge. There are ways to make it all more manageable, but for me, there is a level of discomfort, challenge and difficulty, as well as moments of joy. I think women are sometimes thrown off-balance by some difficulty, instead of saying, “OK, how am I going to strategize and make it all work for me and my family?”

We don’t give enough credit to having great girlfriends. I don’t mean people you go to lunch with—I mean real allies. People that give you good advice and are strong for you, that will take your kids and you’ll take theirs. I think that is an underutilized tool. I always encourage women to approach life with a strategy and use each other to help navigate it, because that makes it a little easier.

Which role is most important to you and where does self-care fit in? At this time in my life, being a mother is the most important. When my girls are older and more independent, then their demands on my time will lessen. But I don’t think I’d ever blindly put one role over the other, because they are all connected. I just approach them with different parts of my personality. My work is intellectual, while being a mom is instinctual. Being in a relationship is a whole other ball of wax that I approach with the same diligence. Taking care of myself is at the center because I wouldn’t be able to do anything successfully if I am not well myself.

With your busy schedule, how do you find time to work out and stay in shape? I think it’s been about momentum. I had the good fortune of training and eating well since I went off to play volleyball in college. That sort of steam made it easier as I added work, a partner and children. I think it’s more difficult for women that don’t have that experience. When they enter “the real world” and add a big career or long hours, a partner or family, it becomes difficult to establish that grounding in healthy practices. You have to create the environment in which you are going to succeed. That takes years. At some point, you have to be honest with yourself. For me, I know I won’t get exercise or anything else done if I stay home. There are some things I can go to a gym to do that I can also do at home but know I won’t, so it’s about creating an environment that activates good intentions.

How do you choose to expend your volunteer efforts? Laird and I are usually quick to be on board with anything that involves the environment and people. These causes are near and dear to everybody, but make special sense for us, given the amount of time we have lived and worked outside.

As a mother, do you feel a special concern for being a good environmental steward? I felt this way even before I had children because I had the luxury of playing beach volleyball. I grew up in the Caribbean and have always tried to be a benefactor of the beautiful outdoors. It adds another layer of motivation when you start thinking about your kids and the opportunities they will or will not have in their future. In Hawaii, the Polynesians traditionally didn’t believe in ownership, but in being stewards of an area. That’s how I feel about the place where we live now. The ultimate for me would be to leave it better than I found it. Christine MacDonald is a freelance journalist in Washington, D.C., whose specialties include health and science.

ad habits are hard to break—and it’s even harder to eliminate those we are unaware of. Many people experience pain from unconscious physical patterns such as hunching over a computer keyboard or holding a musical instrument at an uncomfortable angle, but don’t know how to identify and change limiting positions. This calls for body movement re-education.

Alexander Technique

“Let’s say you’re a runner and didn’t realize that you were running in a lopsided way,” explains Alexander Technique practitioner Beret Arcaya, who has taught the practice in New York City for almost 30 years. Students learn to retrain their thinking, movements and posture for better natural alignment. “It helps you understand how you’re making an argument between yourself and gravity,” she says. Invented by Australian thespian F. Matthias Alexander at the end of the 19th century as a means of improving his onstage presence, the Alexander Technique is highly regarded by actors and entertainers, yet anyone can benefit from it, according to Arcaya. In typical one-on-one sessions, Alexander movement practitioners use a light, gentle touch and verbal instruction to show students how to realign their head, neck and upper back while standing in front of a mirror, which helps the rest of the body attain a more natural position. Next, students learn to move through routine activities like sitting, walking and bending in ways that replace damaging habits with easier movements. The technique is easily modified to meet individual needs, Arcaya says, citing a former student that suffered from hemophilia. “He could hardly bend his knees, and he had little mobility in one elbow; he was terribly stiff,” she recalls. While the technique couldn’t treat the disease, “It allowed him to skillfully use his remaining uninjured tissue.” One day, when he returned from a three-mile walk with his young son, he

napalmbeach.com


was beaming. “‘I walked with a freedom and a lightness,’ he said, ‘I didn’t want to stop.’” A 2008 study in the medical journal BMJ found that patients with chronic back pain experienced long-term benefits from Alexander Technique exercises and lessons. People with Parkinson’s disease also improved their walking, speech, posture and balance through Alexander training, according to a 2002 study in Clinical Rehabilitation.

Feldenkrais Method

Others in need of movement re-education use the method founded by physicist, electrical engineer and judo black belt holder Moshé Feldenkrais in the mid-20th century. Feldenkrais was familiar with the Alexander Technique, and the two methods share the same fundamental goal of helping students change harmful patterns through movement exploration, touch and dialogue. The Feldenkrais Method avoids concepts of “right” and “wrong”. Instead, the practitioner leads students through gentle, slow-movement sequences, mostly on the floor, while asking questions about subtle details as they experience options. This sharpens sensory awareness of how to perform each movement with maximum ease. In one-on-one sessions, the student is passive while the practitioner’s hands suggest various non-habitual movements to widen his repertoire. It all increases flexibility, balance, fine motor skills and overall physical self-awareness. Feldenkrais stated, “What I’m after isn’t flexible bodies but flexible brains; to restore each person to their human dignity.”  Seniors that practiced the Feldenkrais Method enhanced their balance and mobility, according to a 2010 study published in The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine. It may also alleviate symptoms of nonclinical depression, according to a 2011 pilot study reported in the Journal of the South Carolina Medical Association.

Trager Approach

Another entry point to such a bodily reawakening is the Trager Approach, invented by Dr. Milton Trager, an athlete who suffered from a congenital spinal deformity. “The intention of the practitioner in a Trager session is to introduce the client to a series of playful and pleasurable sensations as the session unfolds,” says practitioner Martha Partridge, of New York City, who works primarily with people that have Parkinson’s disease. During tablework sessions, practitioners “bring awareness” of a specific movement by rocking, cradling and gently rotating a client’s body, Partridge explains. The feeling of effortless movement is further ingrained through a series of mental gymnastics, termed mentastics, that clients can do at home. The objective, says Partridge, is to help people have a sense of joy in everyday, common movement. All three bodywork techniques can help people banish bad habits for good. “Gradually, aches and pains will go away,” Arcaya says. “You can undo the imbalances that have done you wrong.” Then go forward, doing things right.

n 1886, Dr. William Murrell stated in the British Medical Journal, “Massage is of such inestimable value in the treatment of many intractable diseases that it is regretted that so little is known about it in this country, and that it is so rarely employed as a therapeutic agent.” A 2013 survey by the American Massage Association (AMTA) showed that a majority of us are choosing massage therapy to treat such conditions as stress and pain management, according to Winona Bontrager, the association’s immediate past president. Of 1,007 adults surveyed, 75 percent opted for it within the previous year for stress or medical reasons, and 88 percent view massage as effective for pain relief. “A growing body of evidence shows that massage therapy can be effective for a variety of health conditions,” reports Bontrager, adding that massage is rapidly becoming recognized as an important part of health and wellness. Cody Landis, a licensed massage therapist and instructor at the Swedish Institute’s College of Health Sciences, in New York City, explains, “In the last few years, massage therapy research has

Palm Beach Edition

napalmbeach.com

been focusing more on the mechanisms by which the potential health benefits may be occurring—looking at the response of the brain, the immune system and the mechanisms of repair inside of muscle cells themselves.”

Relieves Stress

An AMTA survey reported that 32 percent of positive respondents used massage to relieve stress, and numerous recent studies have confirmed this. Research from Harvard Medical School shows that massage reduces pain and anxiety while increasing sleep and quality of life among metastatic cancer patients. Boston Medical Center researchers saw similar results among 60 cancer patients that underwent port placement surgery; 20-minute massages before and after surgery reduced participants’ stress and anxiety. Australian researchers reporting in the Journal of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery found that massage reduced pain, anxiety and muscle tension following heart surgery among 152 cardiac surgery patients. A study from Japan’s Toho University School of Pharmaceutical Sciences showed that aromatherapy massage


significantly reduced psychological stress among elderly nursing home residents.

Reduces Depression

A study from Nashville’s Meharry Medical College of 43 HIV patients revealed that Swedish massage reduced their symptoms of depression. Lead researcher Russell Poland, Ph.D., a professor of psychiatry and biobehavioral sciences, observes, “When we designed the study, we didn’t expect to see such a large effect of massage. We remain surprised.” The benefit was echoed by a University of California-Los Angeles study of 95 volunteers that displayed increases in their production of oxytocin hormone simultaneous with reductions in adrenocorticotropin hormone. Oxytocin is linked to compassion, empathy, maternal affection and social connection, while lowered adrenocorticotropin effects less stress.

Relieves Pain

Researchers in the Gynecology and Obstetrics Department of Brazil’s University of Sao Paulo studied 46 birthing women and determined that lumbar massage during labor reduced pain by 27 percent. In another study at Beijing’s Chinese PLA General Hospital, deep massage brought relief to 64 patients suffering from chronic low back pain. Relief was reported by a third of 110 headache patients in a Turkish medical school study. Dhaka Medical College Hospital, in Bangladesh, found similar results in a study of 500 headache sufferers, many of which had migraines. Research from the University

of Miami’s School of Medicine showed that massage reduced arthritis pain and increased both grip strength and range of motion among 42 rheumatoid arthritis patients. Lead researcher Tiffany Field, Ph.D., director of Miami University’s Touch Research Institute, says, “We have known that massage therapy reduces substance P, [a neuropeptide] which causes pain, and that it increases serotonin, the body’s natural pain killer. We also know that deep sleep is critical to lowering substance P, increasing serotonin and reducing pain.”

Expands Acceptance

Lucy Liben, dean of massage therapy at the Swedish Institute, affirms the recent research as evidence documenting the numerous health benefits of massage therapy. “More and more consumers are seeking massage therapy for help with a variety of medical issues and conditions. Doctors are increasingly referring patients for such treatment and hospitals are enlisting more therapists to provide care for patients,” says Liben. “Perhaps most importantly,” she adds, “research is offering us guidance in our work as massage therapists in how to provide the most effective care for chronic pain or musculoskeletal problems, during cancer treatment, during the changes of pregnancy or for any number of other health-related issues.” Case Adams is a California naturopath and author of 25 books on natural healing.

What Researchers Now Know Breast Cancer: A French study of 129 breast cancer patients found massage generally reduced lymphedema, a swelling of the lymphatic system, following treatments. The total reduction of lymphedema volume was 33 percent among those receiving massages, according to Gynecologic Oncology. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: Thirty minutes of massage with trigger point reduced symptoms and improved function in a study of 21 carpal tunnel patients (Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies). Constipation: Massage therapy increased the average number of bowel movements among 33 hospitalized Korean children, as reported in the Journal of Korean Academy of Nursing.

It Keeps Us in Tune with Ourself

L

isten to a traditional West African Griot story: When a tribal woman knows she is pregnant, she goes into the wilderness with a few friends to pray and meditate until they hear the song of the child. They recognize that every soul has its own vibration that expresses its unique flavor and purpose. When the women attune to the song, they sing it out loud. Then they return and teach it to everyone else. When children are born into the tribe, the village community gathers and sings their song, one unique melody for each unique child. Later, when children begin their education, the village again gathers to chant each child’s song. They sing upon the initiation of adulthood and at the time of their marriage. If at any time someone commits a crime or aberrant social act, the villagers will circle the individual and chant their song, recognizing that the proper correction is love and the remembrance of identity, because when you recognize your own song you have no desire or need to do anything that would hurt another. Finally, when the soul is about to pass from this world, family and friends gather at the bedside, as they did at birth, and sing the person to the next life. In any culture, a friend is one that knows our song and sings it to us when we have forgotten it. Those that love us are not fooled by the mistakes we’ve made or the dark images we hold about ourself. They remember our beauty when we feel ugly; our wholeness when we

are broken; our innocence when we feel guilty; and our purpose when we are confused. Life always reminds us when we are and when we’re not in tune with ourself. When we feel good, we are matching our song. We may feel a little wobbly at times, but so have all the great singers. If we just keep singing, we’ll find our way home. In the end, we shall all recognize our song and sing it well. Modern pioneers in vibrational energy like Sharry Edwards (bioacoustic biology) and Donna Eden (energy medicine) have independently detected that each of us has a fundamental signature frequency that can be equated to our unique song that persists throughout life. We innately seek natural sounds that reinforce and strengthen our song such as the surf, wind or birds. Even the stars and heavens offer songs out of our hearing range that benefit cell-to-cell vibrations within that we intuitively feel as the magic of a midnight sky. At one with the universe, our song contributes its part in the infinite chorus of creation. Jill Mattson is an author, artist, musician and sound healing composer. Her books and CDs, based on 20 years of studying ancient civilizations, support healing and personal growth. Connect at JillsWingsOfLight.com. The Griot story is based on an interpretation by Jane Maluka and Dan Millman.

DAILY GUIDANCE FROM YOUR ANGELS, 365 ANGELIC MESSAGES TO SOOTHE, HEAL, AND OPEN YOUR HEART

By Doreen Virtue

E

ven though this book has been out for awhile I felt guided to mention it here in this column. Doreen is well know for her connection to the angels and has many books and oracle cards containing messages from Angels, Ascended Masters, and Goddesses to name just a few. Doreen has two different editions of this title and the one I wanted to highlight is the beautiful gift edition. It is exquisitely laid out and designed. There are 365 messages so one can either read one page per day to get a daily dose of inspiration or simply open it at a random page when you feel the need for guidance. There is a brief message plus a ‘Thought for Today’ to go with each one, which you can use as an affirmation throughout your day. Here are a few examples: Message # 98: Send Love to Your Heart Your entire body reacts positively to love. When you direct this emotion toward your physical self, it’s the same energy that we angels or other people send you. Love is love, no matter what channel it flows through. Give extra energy to your heart today, blessing it physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Hold the prayer that it’s completely healthy. Surround it with love, and ask it to absorb this gift with each beat. Tell it “Thank you” for being so healthy, strong, and efficient. Reassure your heart that it’s safe and you’ll protect it in all ways. Let it know

that you’ll exercise and eat healthfully, as you’re guided. Declare that you’ll honor your feelings to help identify the relationships and situations that are beneficial – and others to avoid. See your heart as a beautiful flower, and ask its pedals to gently unfurl. Watch as any barriers you’ve hidden behind are lowered. Send your heart tender feelings, and it, in turn, will help you feel greater love. Thought for Today: I send love to my heart and surround it with healing light. I give thanks and attend to it by following my guidance and practicing self-care. Message # 229: Have Faith and Patience Divine timing means the intersection of all favorable circumstances. Please have patience while everything works itself out to achieve optimal conditions for the full manifestation of your desires. In the meantime, know that your prayers and affirmations have been heard and are being answered. Their final fruition is nearly complete. When a sailor nears dry land after being at sea for many months, he looks for signs such as birds flying with twigs in their beaks. He continues to sail in their direction, having faith that the shore is close by. In the same way, we angels send you many signals about the progress of your prayers. We ask that you hold the same faith and know that the markers you’ve been seeing and feeling are sure indications of great things on the horizon.

Rest in your trust and patience, knowing that everything is being taken care of behind the scenes on your behalf. Your ship is coming in right now. Thought for Today: I have faith in Divine timing, and I know that my prayers are always answered at exactly the perfect moment. I let go of my own agenda and trust in the big picture. Everything is going according to plan, and I will soon understand the sequence of events. My life is – and always has been – perfect in every way. For the month of May, I will be offering this book at Changing Times Books and Gifts at a 20% discount. It is my hope that you will come in and take a look at it for yourself or purchase it as a gift for a friend..

HAWTHORN By William H. Stager, DO, MS, MPH, FAAFP, FAAMA, FAAO, FACOFP

H

awthorn, or English Hawthorn (Crataegus laevigata) was once regarded as sacred because it was thought that its thorny branches were used to fashion the crown of thorns forced on Jesus Christ at His death. The Hawthorn tree is indigenous to northern temperate zones of Europe, Asia, and North America. The tree grows up to about 30 feet high and may live for many years. It has white flowers, with each blossom producing a separate fruit, which when ripe is a brilliant red; both flowers and fruit have a bitter taste and unpleasant smell. The medicinal parts of its leaves, flowers, and berries are usually collected in the wild and dried at room temperature. Important compounds isolated from Hawthorn include: procyanidins, flavonoids, amines, and triterpenes. A number of research studies over many years have revealed many possible uses of Hawthorn, including:

• Congestive heart failure, it may be used in combination with cardiac glycosides, potentiating their effects, thereby reducing the dosage of cardiac glycosides • Hypertension • Atherosclerosis • Hyperlipidemia, lowering LDL cholesterol • Cardiotropic effects: inotropic and chronotropic (makes the heart beat faster and stronger) • Increases coronary and myocardial circulatory perfusion and reduction in peripheral vascular resistance (increase blood flow in the blood vessels in and on the heart) • Antiarrhythmic: increases the action potential and prolongs the refractory period in heart muscle (thus it acts like class III antiarrhythmic drugs, treating irregular heartbeats) • Decrease inflammation, capillary fragility, and prevent collagen destruction in joints • Antioxidant effects • Antiviral effects • Antibacterial effects • Inhibition of platelet aggregation (prevents clots) • Memory loss • Source of vitamin C • Diuretic • Sore throats

It’s important to recognize that humans are not the measure of all things... The Earth is the measure of all things. ~James Balog

Contraindications: Hawthorn is contraindicated during pregnancy and in children under 12 years of age. Precautions and adverse effects: palpitations, tachycardia, dizziness, headache, vertigo, hot flashes, gastrointestinal complaints, shortness of breath. The PDR for Herbal Remedies recommends that Hawthorn supplements be prescribed and monitored by a physician (M.D. or D.O.). Drug interactions: Hawthorn may potentiate the action of cardiac glycosides such as digoxin. Avoid concomitant use with Class III antiarrhythmics. It may increase the risk of bleeding when used with antiplatelet drugs. Avoid with cisapride. Overdosage: there are no clear limits for humans, so caution is required. Dosage: Hawthorn dried or liquid extracts come in capsules, tablets, and liquid forms. The average daily dose is 5 grams of drug, or 160-900 mg of extract in divided doses, three times daily. Duration of treatment is usually a minimum of 6 weeks. William H. Stager, DO, MS, MPH, FA MA, FAAO, FACOFPAOBNMM Board Certified:Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine/ Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine.
