The Power to Transform Your Life

L

aura Norman, author of the best-selling book Feet First: A Guide to Foot Reflexology, is a world-renowned authority on Reflexology. She is offering comprehensive training programs in the Laura Norman Method of Holistic Foot, Hand, Face and Ear Reflexology in New York City and in the Berkshires this summer and fall. Her holistic method combines Reflexology with Inspired Life Coaching to empower clients to improve their health, trust their inspirations and realize their dreams. Laura discusses the power of Reflexology to transform your life: How does Reflexology work? Reflexology is an ancient holistic healing technique used today throughout the world to accelerate the body’s own healing abilities, facilitate profound relaxation and rejuvenate the body’s systems by balancing the subtle energy flow throughout the body. Results are achieved by applying gentle, firm pressure to specific reflex areas on the feet, hands, ears and face that correspond to all of the organs, glands and other parts of the body. You relax as your body is empowered to cleanse itself of impurities, restore its natural balance, and experience a general sense of wellness.

frequently do fall asleep. After the session clients tell me they feel much calmer, relaxed, at peace. People notice symptoms diminishing and/or disappearing as their health improves. They say they experience a new inner strength, greater clarity and focus, increased energy, are more effective at work, and their relationships benefit from their increased sense of calm, patience and compassion. Why would someone want to become a Reflexologist? Being a Reflexologist is rewarding in many different ways. It is so fulfilling to see someone who came in stressed, anxious, exhausted or in pain leave feeling calm, relaxed, energized, free of pain. Reflexology is non-invasive and easier to learn than massage, so Reflexologists can do more sessions in a day and still feel energized when they are done. Reflexologists find the work financially rewarding as well, earning from $75 to $150 per hour, depending on location.

Want to know an awesome benefit while you’re becoming a Reflexologist? You get healed! As you practice through hands-on, healing exchanges with other students, you will give and receive Reflexology throughout your training. What types of people become Reflexologists? People from all walks of life choose to become Reflexologists. Those looking beyond corporate life for more fulfilling work, massage therapists, estheticians, nail techs, nurses, acupuncturists, chiropractic assistants, physical therapists, midwives, doulas – anyone who is caring, compassionate and has a desire to help others. Laura Norman, M.S., LMT, offers private Holistic Reflexology and Inspired Life Coaching sessions in Delray Beach and Holistic Reflexology Training Programs starting June 2nd in Boynton Beach (See our ad this issue for our complete class calendar) Foot, Hand and Face Reflexology Instructional DVDs and natural aromatherapy products are also available. Beautiful instant gift certificates available online for all occasions. www.lauranorman.com Call 561-272-1220 • Text 917-331-0428

Laura Norman

What health challenges can benefit from Reflexology? With regular Reflexology sessions, clients report relief from many conditions including headaches, back, neck, shoulder pain, digestive conditions, fatigue, allergies, poor circulation, PMS, menopause and other chronic conditions. Reflexology brings the body into balance/homeostasis, assisting the body/ mind to heal itself. The benefits are extensive and unique for each person. Reflexology can also reduce stress, increase energy levels and productivity, and improve circulation and detoxification. It can even assist in weight management and overcoming addictions. How do people feel during and after a Reflexology session? Clients feel more relaxed during a session. Many have said they feel like they are in a hypnotic trance or dreamlike state, and they

Acupuncture and Mental/ Emotional Well- Being

S

tress, Anxiety, Depression; Three small words that could have a HUGE impact on your life. Short stints of tension, worry, or sadness can build upon each other and, if not properly taken care of, can cause larger issues like chronic stress, anxiety, or depression. Whether you’re of school age or retirement age, you have experienced at least one of these feelings in your life. It is just as important to take care of your mental health as it is to take care of your physical health. How do you go about taking care of your mental health? Stepping away from certain aspects of your life that provoke negative feelings, even just for 30 minutes, is an excellent way to start. Get out into nature, take walks, exercise, practice yoga, or meditation are just a few more examples. Do more of what makes you happy. Endorphins are a very important hormone in your body that are known as the ‘feel good’ hormone. These are the hormones that

make you happy. So how does acupuncture relate to all of this? Acupuncture has the ability to signal your body to release these endorphins while you relax in a peaceful room with calming music. Acupuncture does much more than just release these endorphins though. Acupuncture is all about balance. Balance within your body and balance between you and your surroundings. When your body is not in balance, the way you handle certain situations will be altered. Each organ of your body governs a certain emotion. Tension, anger, or stress is related to the liver, anxiety or over-thinking is related to the spleen, fear is related to the kidney, joy is related to the heart, and sadness or depression is related to the lung. If one of these organs or the channel the organ runs along is disturbed, your emotions related to that organ will be disturbed. During your first visit to an acupuncturist and subsequent visits after that, you will be asked specific questions that are guiding the acupuncturist to which organ or organs are out of balance. Acupuncturists also utilize, facial, tongue, and pulse readings to properly diagnose each specific individual. A lot of thought goes into diagnosing a patient using Chinese Medicine because the acupuncturist does not want to just treat the symptoms, but rather get down to the root of the problem deep inside the body. Once the root of the problem is healed, the symptoms should no longer exist. If you were to just mask the symptoms with a quick fix, they would keep re-occurring and eventually become worse over time. We advise you to make acupuncture a part of your mental health regimen if you feel as though you suffer from chronic stress, anxiety, depression, or any other mental health issue. Even if you feel as though you only have “work stress” or “family stress”, you should consider talking to an acupuncturist to learn how you can prioritize your relaxation and happiness with all the small stressors surrounding you. Sometimes all it takes is to see an acupuncturist once a week or once a month to keep your mental health stable. Do more for yourself this year. Make your happiness a priority, the happier you are, the happier the people around you will be. Call Meng’s Acupuncture Medical Center today to schedule your FREE consultation and start your journey to being a happier, healthier you. (561) 656-0717.

Kirtan Concerts to Benefit Impoverished Children in Rural India

T

hree soul-stirring kirtan concerts featuring San Francisco Bay Area musician and vocalist, Acharya Mangalananda, will be held on May 17, at Yoga Source, in Plantation; on May 18 at the Duncan Center Chapel, in Delray Beach; and on May 25, at the Lotus Pond Center for Yoga & Wellness, in Tampa. All proceeds benefit Ma Sharanam Ashram and School, an educational institution in Madhya Pradesh, India, dedicated to the spiritual, academic, social and emotional needs of the impoverished children and families that it serves. Acharya Mangalananda lived in India for 40 years and is a direct disciple of Sri Anandamayi Ma (1896–1982), to whom the school and ashram are dedicated. He, along with Ma Sharanam’s spiritual director, Swami Gurusharanananda, helped to found the school and ashram at its original location more than 10 years ago. He has just returned from visiting India and will share about the remarkable story of Ma Sharanam, about the time, as a young man, he spent with Sri Anandamayi Ma, and also why Ma Sharanam, which translates as “refuge in the Mother”, could be a model for how to educate children in a wholistic, nurturing and natural way. Children of Ma Anandamayi Foundation, ChildrenOfMa.org, a 501(c)(3) U.S. nonprofit that is sponsoring these events, provides the day-to-day operating funds for Ma Sharanam. Cost: $20; $25 after May 12 and at the door. For more information and tickets, go to the FLKIRTAN page at ChildrenOfMa.org/flkirtan.html.

Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired by Dr. Yolanda Cintron

If you were given bad news about your body not functioning or a diagnosis you didn’t expect, it is a wake-up call to change. Take action—it is time to stop and review your habits, priorities, purpose, spirituality and thought life.

I

see hundreds of dental patients a year and it pains me to see them get desperate when they have to understand that their condition (cancer or neurological) didn’t happen overnight. It took years to get there. I have a friend who knew of my biological dental practice for many years but recently found out he had endocarditis. His cardiologist was afraid of doing alternative treatment and afraid of the patient doing dental treatment. For 25 years, he had been under this same doctor’s care but the root cause had never been addressed. Once all the infections in his mouth were removed, his heart began to heal, and in one month, it went from 25 percent functioning to 45 percent and continues to heal. We are happy to say that he is doing great today—a true miracle to his cardiologist but we knew all along the truth about the root cause. I am dealing with a critical

situation when doctors don’t educate patients about the connection between the mouth and our overall health. I encourage my patients to get educated and own their own destiny. Do not operate from fear. Do what you need to do to get healthy. Your mouth can be the source of your health or the reason for your illness if you neglect treatment. If you have termites in your house, it’s not time to decorate and paint, it’s time to get to work and clean it up from the inside. This month, we celebrate 21 years of our practice serving others and their dental health. Becoming knowledgeable about biological dentistry was not a popular path within mainstream dentistry. But the more I learned, the more I saw how biological dentistry was congruent with scientific data, chemistry, cellular molecular biology and toxicology and that is how Go Natural Dentistry started. I am partners with our patients in their quest to find optimal health through biological dentistry. I want to thank each and every person who, for any period of the last 21 years, walked with me, worked with me, prayed and believed God could heal. I want to thank the patients who entrusted us with their care and who know that we are only an instrument— and God is the miracle worker.

If you are in need of holistic dental care that is scientific and transformative, please contact us so we can help you get back to optimal health. Health starts in your mouth!

THE GUT-BRAIN AXIS

D

id you know that we humans have two brains? The obvious one is the one in your skull (cranium). But most people don’t realize that there is another “brain” in your digestive system. And this “brain” is important for your immune system and emotional wellbeing. The two brains are connected by a communication axis – the Gut-Brain Axis (GBX). If your gut is not healthy, you may suffer with immune problems or emotional distress your whole life! Can you believe we have over 100 trillion microorganisms across more than 10,000 different species (microbiota) in our GI tract. There are more microorganisms in our bodies than cells! There are only 10 trillion cells in human bodies. These microbiota have 9 million genes (microbiome) compared with our 23,000 human genes. Based on the gene count we are less than 1% human! Psychobiotics are any bacterially-mediated substances (probiotics) that exert an effect on the brain. Probiotics can have anti-anxiety (anxiolytic) and antidepressant effects when taken regularly. Neurotransmitters: psycho-

biotics enhance neurotransmitter production in the gut, including dopamine (DA), serotonin (5-HT), noradrenaline (NA), and γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA), which likely modulate neurotransmission in the proximal synapses of the enteric nervous system. Psychobiotic action restores gut barrier function and decreases circulating concentrations of glucocorticoids and pro-inflammatory cytokines. They also increase concentrations of anti-inflammatory cytokines (blue circles), which enhance integrity of the blood–brain barrier, the gut barrier, and reduce overall inflammation. The gut microbiome comprises all the microorganisms and their genomes inhabiting the intestinal tract. It is a key node in the bidirectional gut-brain axis. Gut bacteria have been found to participate in the regulation of varied and important physiological processes, including immunomodulation, adiposity and energy balance. This means that the probiotics can affect your immune system, weight and energy. Probiotics are one of several essential supplements that I recommend for improv-

ing – or maintaining – your overall health. I recommend a specific sporulated probiotic that does not need to be refrigerated and is not destroyed by your stomach acid. And you only need to take two capsules three times a week for maximum benefits. This is an inexpensive way to improve your digestive and immune system and possibly your overall mental health as well. Call the office to make an appointment or for more information. Dr. Bill Rice has been in practicing acupuncture, chiropractic and nutritional counseling since 1977. He is currently practicing in the Gardens Wholistic Health Center in Palm Beach Gardens. 561.439.6644. drbill@writeme.com

hypertension from 32 percent to 46 percent. American heart disease deaths rose from 836,546 in 2015 to 840,678 in 2016. Studies show that about 80 percent of all cardiovascular disease can be prevented by controlling high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol, along with healthy practices like not smoking, says the AHA.

Women in menopause that are mindful and nonjudgmental of their thoughts are less irritable, anxious and depressed, reports a Mayo Clinic study recently published in Climacteric, the journal of the International Menopause Society. Researchers gave questionnaires to 1,744 menopausal patients 40 to 65 years old and found that those with higher mindfulness scores struggled less with common menopausal symptoms. Mindfulness didn’t lower hot flash and night sweat symptoms, however.

Mindfulness May Ease Menopausal Symptoms

U.S. Heart Disease on the Rise Forty-eight percent of American adults have some form of cardiovascular disease, reported the American Heart Association (AHA) in its annual update. The increase is partly due to 2017 updated guidelines redefining high blood pressure as greater than 130/80 millimeters of mercury rather than 140/90, which raised the number of Americans with diagnosed

Simply changing a diet to include more fruit and vegetables can boost mental well-being, say British researchers from Leeds and York universities. Examining health data of 40,000 people, they concluded those that eat more produce have a better psychological state, and that eating just one extra portion of fruits and vegetables a day could have a positive effect equivalent to around eight extra days of walking a month for at least 10 minutes at a time. A meta-analysis of 16 studies by the UK’s University of Manchester found the mood-boosting effect was particularly strong for women, and it worked with different types of diets, indicating a particular approach is not necessary. When dietary changes were combined with exercise, even greater improvements resulted.

Japanese researchers interviewed 1,003 Tokyo women over 70 years old about which of 16 types of exercise they did, including dancing, calisthenics, jogging, golf, ball games, hiking, yoga, bicycling and tai chi. In eight years of follow-up, those that danced were 73 percent less likely to be classified as impaired in any of the “activities of daily living” such as walking, cooking, dressing and bathing—a result not produced by the other physical activities. “Dancing requires not only balance, strength and endurance ability, but also cognitive ability: adaptability and concentration to move according to the music and partner; artistry for graceful and fluid motion; and memory for choreography,” writes lead author Yosuke Osuka, of the Tokyo Metropolitan Institute of Gerontology.

Selenium and CoQ10 Provide Lasting Benefits

Walking, cycling, climbing stairs and other aerobic activities may improve brain function not only in older people, but also in younger folk, according to a Columbia University study published in Neurology. The study recruited 132 people between 20 and 67 years old that didn’t exercise and had below-average fitness levels. Half stretched and toned four times a week for six months and half exercised aerobically on a treadmill, stationary bike or elliptical machine. When they were evaluated for their executive function thinking skills—regulating behavior, paying attention and achieving goals—the aerobics group improved twice as much as the stretching group. “The people who exercised were testing as if they were about 10 years younger at age 40 and about 20 years younger at age 60,” says study author Yaakov Stern, Ph.D.

Swedish seniors that took coenzyme Q10 and selenium during a fouryear study were still benefiting 12 years later with a reduced cardiovascular mortality risk of more than 40 percent. In the original study, Linköping University researchers gave 443 independently living seniors over 70 years old either a placebo or 200 milligrams of CoQ10 and 200 milligrams of selenium per day. Those on the supplements showed a reduced risk of dying from cardiovascular disease, improved heart function, less hospitalization, more vitality and a better quality of life. Twelve years later, the researchers examined autopsies and death certificates, and found the supplement-takers had a lower risk of death compared to the placebo group, even if they had diabetes, high blood pressure or ischemic heart disease.

Exercise Improves Young Brains, Too

First-time mothers that practiced yoga beginning in the 30th week of pregnancy had fewer caesareans, fewer low-weight newborns and milder and briefer labor pains. They were also less likely to require painkillers or labor inducement. The Mangalore, India, hospital study, published in The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, included 150 women 20 to 35 years old that were pregnant for the first time and had no prior yoga experience. Half of the women did not do yoga, while the other half took 30-minute yoga classes once every week or two. Women in the yoga group were also more comfortable after giving birth.

Avian Senior Citizen Astounds Again

Being at least 68 years old didn’t deter Wisdom, a Laysan Albatross, from recently hatching another chick. The world’s oldest known banded wild bird, which roosts at the Midway Atoll National Wildlife Refuge, in Hawaii, has birthed and raised more than 30 chicks in her lifetime. She and her mate-for-life Akeakamai spent about two months incubating the new egg, and now they’ll raise the chick for five to six months before it flies out to sea. It is uncommon for albatross to return, lay and hatch an egg every single year, but the pair has produced a chick each year since 2006, say U.S Fish and Wildlife Service officials. 20

Nuclear Testing Linked to Radioactive Milk

The hundreds of nuclear bombs detonated on a remote Nevada test site during the Cold War produced radioactive fallout that led indirectly to the deaths of 340,000 to 690,000 Americans, concludes a recent study by economist Keith Meyers, Ph.D., of the University of Southern Denmark. Meyers conducted the research for his doctoral dissertation while attending the University of Arizona. By combining National Cancer Institute data measuring the radioactive element Iodine-131 in local cow milk with county-by-county mortality data, he found heightened death rates in the Midwest and Northeast between 1951 and 1973. The finding suggests that airborne radiation contaminated pastures that, in turn, made milk radioactive and led to the human ingestion of slow-acting, but fatal radioactive isotopes. In comparison, an estimated 200,000 to 350,000 people in the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki died directly from the atomic bombs dropped on August 6 and 9, 1945, respectively.

As the Appalachian economy struggles with the loss of three-fifths of its coal mining jobs in the last three decades, a surprising option is emerging for some: beekeeping. The Appalachian Beekeeping Collective offers beekeeping training, including bees and equipment and ongoing mentoring, for displaced coal miners and low-income residents of mining towns; so far, about 35 people are participating. Landowners are donating property for the beehives, which will be maintained without pesticides or antibiotics. Honey from a single hive can bring in about $750 a season, or $15,000 per 20, and additional money can be made selling the beeswax for candles and lip balm. The beekeeping collective is part of Appalachian Headwaters, a nonprofit formed in 2016 with a $7.5 million lawsuit settlement from coal mine operator Alpha Natural Resources for violations of the Clean Water Act. The money has been used to fund environmental restoration projects and to develop sustainable economic opportunities in the coal mining communities of West Virginia.

Miners Becoming Beekeepers

Higher federal standards for energy-efficient light bulbs established two years ago are in the process of being rolled back by the U.S. Department of Energy, part of a move toward widespread deregulation by the current administration. Consumers stand to lose about $100 per household per year in electric bill savings if the higher standards are not implemented, say critics. The wasted energy could result in more power plant pollution, which harms the environment and contributes to health problems like asthma. The plan would also stifle innovation, eliminating a powerful regulatory incentive for manufacturers and retailers to invest in high-quality, energyefficient LED light bulbs.

Human Composting at the End of Life

Tory Kallman/Shutterstock.com

Washington is poised to become the first state to make it legal to compost human remains. A bill allowing for the process, called natural organic reduction, as well as another called water cremation, has passed the state senate and is making its way to the house for a vote. Human composting involves placing a body in a tubular vessel and covering it with natural materials like wood chips and straw. Over several weeks, microbial activity breaks down the body into about a cubic yard of soil. Recompose, a company that wants to offer the practice as an alternative to traditional methods, worked with Washington State University to test its safety for environmental and human health. Six people donated their bodies for the study. The method alleviates much of the carbon footprint associated with both cremation and traditional casket burial.

Beyond Green Burial

About 50 polar bears that usually hunt seals from ice floes have found new cuisine in the garbage dumps in the remote Russian island military town of Belushya Gubam, about 1,200 miles northeast of Moscow. Its 2,000 residents, long accustomed to the occasional bear strolling through, now call it a “mass invasion” as the curious bears peer into windows, stare down barking dogs and dig through trash. Russia’s environmental response agency has sent in a crisis team that is studying how to remove the bears without killing them. The Barents Sea that the bears inhabit is undergoing what a recent study called a “rapid climate shift” from Arctic Ocean temperatures to warmer Atlantic Ocean-like temperatures; the entire western side of the island is now ice-free year round.

Digital Receipts Gain Momentum

Compared to newspapers, magazines and junk mail, retail sales receipts may seem inconsequential in their use of trees and their footprint on the environment. Yet, getting and handling that tabulation of a sale is a health hazard that contributes to landfills. Certainly, some receipts are required for tax records and product returns, but the vast majority serve no future purpose; there’s also a better and safer option than paper. Treehugger.com reports the annual waste from receipts in the U.S. totals 686 million pounds, and that skipping receipts would save 12 billion pounds of carbon dioxide, the

On the Brink

Monarchs Need Species Protections

Being listed as part of the Endangered Species Act would protect monarch butterflies. In the 1980s, about 4.5 million butterflies spent winters along the California coast. This season’s stay is shaping up to consist of only about 30,000. Fully 99 percent of the species listed under the Endangered Species Act of 1973 are still with us today. To urge the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to give monarch butterflies the proven protection of the Endangered Species Act in June, sign the petition at Tinyurl.com/ProtectTheMonarchs.

Skip the Slip

equivalent of 1 million cars on the road. The problem is getting worse as many retail outlets include special offers and other promotional information on receipts, making them longer and the corresponding amount of paper used greater. The Ecology Center, an educational nonprofit located in San Juan Capistrano, California, estimates that 93 percent of paper receipts are coated with Bisphenol-A (BPA) or Bisphenol-S (BPS), endocrine disrupters that are used as color developers to help make the receipts more legible. However, the presence of either makes them ineligible for recycling. According to Green America (GreenAmerica.org), BPA that can be “absorbed into our bodies through our hands in mere seconds,” can impact fetal development and “is linked to reproductive impairment, Type 2 diabetes, thyroid conditions and other health concerns.” Employees that regularly handle receipts have 30 percent more BPA or BPS in their bodies. In January, California Assembly member Phil Ting (D-San Francisco) introduced legislation (AB 161) nicknamed “skip the slip”, which would require retailers to offer digital receipts to customers. If it passes, it will be the first such law in the country.

The Mother Our Souls Need Connecting With the Energy That Made Us

T

by Christiane Northrup

his Mother’s Day, I want to tell you about a different way to think about your mother and about yourself—a way that is deeply true and liberating, no matter what is going on with your mother. On a soul level, we’re old friends with our mothers. And they signed up for assisting us on our souls’ journeys big time—by being willing to take on the role of our mother. And no matter how well they did or didn’t do that job, we have a job, too: to realize that though we might not have had the mother we wanted, we all got the mother our souls needed. What’s more, every single one of us can connect right now with the mother energy that made all of our bodies in the first place—the Earth herself. It has been said that when you lavish your attention on the Earth—on a flower, or a stream or any aspect of nature—that energy loves you right back. In the book series The Ringing Cedars, Anastasia refers to the land you live on and love as, “Love dissolved in

space.” You can feel this when you travel to parks and gardens, farms and yards that have been loved by those who live there. This mothering energy is available to each of us from the Earth and from Mother Nature—no matter what has happened with your biological mother. So here is my prescription for a glorious Mother’s Day. Call your mother—in spirit, if she is no longer in a body—or if speaking with her directly is too painful. Here’s a special prayer: “With my Spirit, I send Divine Love to my mother’s Spirit.” That’s it. Just say this prayer. With your whole heart. And let go of the outcome. Happy Mother’s Day.

Women play vital roles in family and community, much like the foundation of a sound building, and if self-care is not the bedrock, all that is supported by it is likely to be compromised. “I believe we’ve taken the bait, the promise that if we arrange our life circumstances just so, we’ll feel ease and happiness. We’re getting to a place as a collective where we see a bankruptcy in that,” says Miami-based holistic women’s psychiatrist Dr. Kelly Brogan, bestselling author of A Mind of Your Own: The Truth About Depression and How Women Can Heal Their Bodies to Reclaim Their Lives. Body-mind-spirit self-care is the heart of Brogan’s approach, and self-love is the lifeblood. “Self-love is quite elusive for most of us, perhaps because our self-esteem is contingent [upon it], and we only feel good about ourselves under certain circumstances. The daily choice to prioritize caring for oneself can ultimately lead to an experience of self-love and wholeness,” says Brogan, who compares a ritualized system of daily self-care that comes first to putting on the proverbial oxygen mask before attempting to meet the needs of others. “Balancing self-love and caring for others starts with recognizing and accepting that it’s possible for you to effectively do both. Self-love at the soul level is the catalyst for healing on all levels, which in turn drives our level of self-worth,” concurs Teigan Draig, a spiritual life coach and busy home-schooling mom in Spencerville, Ohio. She reminds us that putting our needs above the wants of others is not being selfish, but is an emotional necessity that helps women get out of the loop of self-defeatism and self-sabotage. “The first step to

finding your fire is learning to love yourself, all of yourself. Self-care and self-love are a total wellness package.”

Benefits of Self-Nourishment Many psychologists agree that self-care can help to improve concentration, promote relaxation, fortify relationships and boost productivity. Most women crave more me-time, but don’t know how to implement change. “Without a premise of self-care, we react based on stress patterns. We react with more tension, irritability, guilt and obligation. We say, ‘Yes’ when we want to say, ‘No’. However, when we take stock in our physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing, we’re less reactive,” observes Hassler, who underscores self-care as an investment for life. “Most women have inner critics and a negative relationship with self. Self-care is essential so we can turn down the volume of the inner critic, stop people-pleasing and make self-honoring choices.” Balancing motherhood and career or other obligations can leave many women running on empty and resentful. “We would never tell a loved one who desperately needed some TLC to get over it and just keep going. As busy women, when we don’t take the time to care for ourselves, the consequence is our children getting a mom who is preoccupied, anxious and disconnected,” says women’s life coach Veronica Paris, in San Diego. Catering to everyone’s desires and spreading ourselves too thin can backfire. Paris asks, “How do I want my kids to look back on me as a mother? By taking the time to self-care, we’re taking accountability for how we want to show up in our world rather than shapeshifting from one situation to the next. We can teach our children how to do the same.”

Our Emotions As Wellspring For too many women, another common byproduct of self-neglect can be emotional numbing and feeling “flatlined”. A toxic or addictive relationship to food, alcohol or shopping can be a symptom of a deep need to nourish the self and give a voice to suppressed feelings. “One of our greatest challenges is that we’ve become disconnected from our deep seat of power, which is our

capacity to feel,” says Brogan. “We’ve been enculturated to disregard our experience of feeling emotions, and because of this, it’s been reduced to a very narrow bandwidth.” Brogan believes that it is key for women to reestablish a connection to nature’s rhythms and their own feminine, fluid energy, as well as giving up the need to control. “I think it’s the work of many women to understand that we’re not here to meet the needs of everyone on the planet—and with our loved ones, it disempowers them as much as we’re feeling disempowered. We’re here to meet our own needs and then offer compassion and caring in a way that comes from a more boundaried space.”

SIMPLE SELF-CARE STRATEGIES 4 Schedule me-time on the calendar. 4 Unplug from gadgets. 4 Spend lunch breaks in the park. 4 Rest before hitting the wall of exhaustion. 4 Take 10 minutes to stretch and breathe in the morning. 4 Meditate in the shower; choose a luxurious, natural, body wash. 4 Wear your favorite jewelry. 4 Designate a beautiful tea cup or coffee mug to use on hectic work days. 4 Buy yourself flowers; take yourself out to lunch or a museum. 4 Sprinkle lavender, rose geranium or ylang ylang essential oil on your sheets. 4 Opt for a gentle workout instead of a high-intensity session when tired. 4 Choose a healthy breakfast. 4 Play, be silly and be a kid again. 4 Designate 15 to 20 minutes after the workday to color, doodle or journal. 4 Listen to your favorite music during commuting or cleaning the house. 4 Abandon perfectionism. 4 Connect to a higher power, however you define it, even if it is inner peace.

Hassler affirms that when women are fully present, every aspect of life can be viewed through a clearer lens. “Self-care helps us tap into our super power, which is our intuition, and by doing that, we know what we need and act on that.”

Thrive With Small Changes Beginning the day with self-care can be as simple as taking the time to meditate and breathe deeply for a minute or two before getting out of bed and opting for a healthier breakfast. Feeding our senses and feasting on what gives us joy can be a way of life. “Self-care does not necessarily have to involve time; it’s a way of being,” says Hassler. “The more time we spend on self-care tells the subconscious mind that we’re worth it.” Draig suggests setting personal boundaries, and part of this means reserving time for ourselves. “When I became a new mother, I was running on fumes. Sometimes my daily me-time was only five minutes here or 10 minutes there, but it saved my sanity. Learn to schedule self-care time in your calendar as you would anything else,” she says, noting, “My house was not always spotless, but it was a trade I was willing to make so I could take care of myself and be a better mother.” Being innovative can be an ally. “Ten minutes walking the dog or taking the baby out in a stroller can become 10 minutes spent saying positive self-affirmations,” suggests Paris. “That 15-minute drive can be spent deep breathing instead of listening to the news on the radio.” Blooming into our best possible self is returning to our essence. “It’s about taking off the masks, no longer living according to expectations and other people. It’s about radical self-acceptance,” says Hassler. Each decade poses an invitation to grow and commit to self-nourishment. “There will be days where you feel like you can’t get the hang of it, but you’ll arrive, and when you do, no matter what age you are, it can be magical,” Draig says.

he 5 million faithful listeners of National Public Radio’s award-winning weekly broadcast Wait Wait... Don’t Tell Me! know that 20-year host Peter Sagal infuses wit and wisdom into his views of the news and the world. In his new book, The Incomplete Book of Running, he brings his trademark humor to a memoir that posits running as a mode of survival—and hope, persistence, practice and love as vehicles of redemption. Sagal’s collection of deeply personal lessons encompasses the emotional spectrum of running, body image and the special bonding between fellow runners. His exhilarating guide to life suggests we keep moving forward in all ways. He also reflects upon the 2013 Boston Marathon, where he finished moments before two bombs exploded, and explores how running helped him cope with a devastating divorce, depression and more. Sagal is also a playwright, screenwriter and the host of PBS’ Constitution USA with Peter Sagal when he’s not writing about the recreation he took up in mid-life where he found himself “lost, in a dark place” after a personal crisis. He lives near Chicago with his wife, Mara.

After becoming a serious runner at nearly 40, when did you napalmbeach.com

realize running had evolved into something more than a simple mission to get healthy?

I was concerned about my weight, but mainly I was also concerned about getting older. I ran my first marathon in 2005 as an emotional reaction to growing older, and that’s when it all began to change for me. It struck me in a deep way as something I wanted to do better. I’ve rarely experienced the classic “runner’s high”—that endorphin-caused euphoria—although I do believe it exists. Rather, what’s more common is the sense that everything—body, mind—is working in concert, without discomfort, with strength, with ease. To paraphrase a line from Kurt Vonnegut, it’s when “everything is beautiful, and nothing hurts.”

As an advocate of escaping our “digital dystopia” of electronic screens by running outdoors, what’s the benefit you see in unplugging?

I’m a big fan of evolutionary biology. We evolved in very different circumstances than what we are living in now; to be attentive to the world and not with a screen in front of us. The reason we are up on

RUNNING TOWARD MINDFULNESS


ACROSS THE MILES O photo by Kyle Cassidy

ur sport seems mindless only to people who never run long enough for any thought to form other than, ‘When can I stop running?’ But the only way to succeed as a long-distance runner is to do it mindfully, to be aware of the body and the world it is moving through. I think about my motion and my breathing, my muscles and their state of agitation or stress or relaxation. I note my surroundings—the downward slope I would never notice driving this street, the hawk’s nest I would never see for lack of looking up, the figure in a window caught in a solitary moment of their own. I think about the true meaning of distance—about the learning that comes from running a mile in your own shoes. From The Incomplete Book of Running, by Peter Sagal.

I’ve met people who say they don’t run, but they walk, ride bikes, hike in the woods. Those people are getting many of the same benefits as running. two legs is so that we can look around and think. We’re supposed to ruminate. We didn’t evolve these extraordinary brains and self-consciousness so we could outsource our thinking. Anybody who has done creative work knows what’s needed to do that is uninterrupted thought.

What can non-runners take away from your book?

Go outside. We weren’t meant to spend so much time in offices. Take the headphones off, move, use your body. Look at little kids in playgrounds—they’re just running around before getting trained into games. We forget that. We spend so much time in our heads reading, watching screens. I’ve met people who say they don’t run, but they walk, ride bikes, hike in the woods. Those people are getting many of the same benefits as running.

Of the many anecdotes you cite about bonding with others through running, which one was the most gratifying? Probably when I ran with William Greer, who I didn’t even know 24 hours before we ran the 2013 Boston Marathon, and by the end of that day we were friends forever because of all we went through together. [Greer is visually impaired and Sagal was his volunteer guide during the race.] We’re still in touch; we sometimes run together. He wouldn’t have finished if I wasn’t helping him and I wouldn’t have finished if he wasn’t helping me.

he U.S. Surgeon General’s warning on cigarettes hasn’t prevented individuals from smoking, nor has the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) list of risks and complications associated with breast implants kept women from undergoing voluntary breast augmentation. Since 1997, the number of saline- and silicone-filled breast implant surgeries has tripled. According to the National Center for Health Research (NCHR), more than 400,000 women and teenagers undergo breast implant surgeries every year, with 75 percent for augmentation of healthy breasts and 25 percent for reconstruction after mastectomies. The marked increase in surgeries implanting these Class III “high risk” medical devices includes many women that undergo procedures to replace old implants that have broken or caused other problems. An estimated 40,000 U.S. women a year have the surgery to remove the implants entirely. These “explants” stem from a variety of issues, from rupture or delayed wound healing to broken implants that have caused breast pain, capsule contracture, spontaneous deflation, breast lesion, infection, wrinkling/scalloping and necrosis. Another reason for removal is the growing concern about the reported incidence of breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL), a treatable T-cell lymphoma, and breast

napalmbeach.com

implant illness (BII) associated with both silicone and saline implants. The FDA first sounded the alarm about the rare lymphoma in 2011, linking it to implants with textured, Velcro-like outer shells. In February, the federal agency issued a letter to healthcare providers seeking to increase awareness “about an association between all breast implants, regardless of filling or texture,” and BIA-ALCL. On the issue of BII and other problems reported by women with implants, the FDA has remained largely silent, suggesting that “studies would need to be larger and longer than these conducted so far.” However, the number of women with implants reporting health problems has prompted the FDA to demand that two manufacturers of the devices conduct proper long-term health studies. The agency sent out letters in March warning of deficiencies in FDA-required research and the possibility that their products could be taken off the market. The move is considered to be a victory for patient activism. Facebook.com/groups/ HealingBreastImplantIllness has become a sanctuary for more than 68,000 women that report a range of symptoms associated with BII. Nicole Daruda, of Vancouver Island, Canada, says she created the group to support women that visited her website, HealingBreastImplantIllness.com, where she told her personal BII story that began with

TOXIC LEGACY

implant surgery in 2005. “I never anticipated an avalanche of women’s stories about the symptoms that I endured before having my explant surgery in 2015.” After hearing from other women, Daruda felt affirmed in her suspicions that implants had caused her fatigue, brain fog, memory loss, headaches, joint and muscle pain, hair loss, recurring infections, swollen lymph nodes, rashes, irritable bowel syndrome and problems with thyroid and adrenal glands. “I believe that various doctors pigeonholed my symptoms into the category of autoimmune disorders because few general practitioners are aware of BII.” Diana Hoppe, M.D., a board-certified OB/GYN in Encinitas, California, never heard of BII until earlier this year. “Doctors rely on published, evidence-based study results, and while there are none linking connective tissue disorders and breast implants, I suspect that the outcomes of studies conducted by breast implant manufacturers are equally as suspicious as the outcomes of studies done by the manufacturers of cigarettes.” One longtime BII combatant says, “My body mounted an all-out war, in the form of a foreign body immune response.” She learned about BII from Tinyurl.com/BreastImplantIllness, but is unable to afford the explant surgery that would remove the apparently toxic invaders. NCHR reports that at the time of explant surgery, approximately three out of five women have had implants and their unhealthy symptoms for 10 years or more. After explant surgery, 89 percent of the women report improvement. However, explant surgery is just the first step. Daruda used chelation and the protocols of Gerson Therapy, a natural treatment that activates the body’s ability to heal itself through an organic, plant-based diet, raw juices, coffee enemas and supplements. “It took me four years to recuperate,” she says. “It didn’t take that long to know the lesson I wanted to share with other women: Self-love and self-worth are more important than society’s false concepts of beauty. The essence of who we are is not tied to any body part.”

Vision Quest Eat a Rainbow of Color for Healthy Eyes

O

GROW Your Business

ne of the best ways to protect and preserve our precious eyesight is to focus on food. In general, the same plant-based, antioxidant-rich diets that defend against heart disease and cancer also contribute to eye health by reducing the risk of cataracts and macular degeneration—the two most common age-related causes of vision loss. However, two specific nutrients—lutein and zeaxanthin—deserve special attention. These compounds uniquely concentrate in the macula, the centrally located part of the retina responsible for visual acuity, and are most vulnerable to oxidative damage from light exposure. Both are members of the carotenoid family, a large group of powerful antioxidant nutrients found mostly in fruits and vegetables, especially those with dark green, deep yellow, red and orange pigments. According to the National Eye Institute and the American Optometric Association, lutein and zeaxanthin help absorb damaging ultraviolet light from the sun, as well as blue light from computer screens, digital devices and LEDs. “Think of lutein as a sort of sunblock,”

says Elizabeth Johnson, research associate professor at the Friedman School of Nutrition and Science Policy at Tufts University, in Boston. Speaking at the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics annual meeting in Washington, D.C., last fall, Johnson described the yellow macular pigments—lutein and zeaxanthin—as “internal sunglasses” that protect the eyes’ photoreceptor cells. “Yellow pigment absorbs blue light,” Johnson explains. The greater our macular pigment density, the more protection we have against light damage, and the better our visual function. As a bonus, macular pigment density also aligns with improved academic performance and cognitive function across our lifespan, reports Naiman Khan, Ph.D., a registered dietitian and director at the Body Composition and Nutritional Neuroscience Lab at the University of Illinois at UrbanaChampaign. Because lutein is actively transported into breast milk, Johnson suspects the compound is important to infant eye and brain health. Despite solid scientific evidence confirming the benefits of lutein and zeaxanthin, there is no official recommended daily

allowance. Johnson explains that Americans typically consume less than two milligrams per day, falling short of levels needed to enhance visual and brain function and slow the progression of age-related eye diseases. Her advice: Eat foods that provide between six to 10 milligrams of lutein and two milligrams of zeaxanthin each day. Dark green leafy vegetables, including kale, spinach and collard greens, provide the highest amounts of lutein and zeaxanthin, especially when cooked. For example, one cup of cooked kale or spinach delivers more than 20 milligrams of lutein and zeaxanthin, whereas one cup of raw spinach contains just under four milligrams. Johnson explains that cooking breaks down plant cell walls, making the carotenoids more bio-available. Plus, because lutein and zeaxanthin are fat-soluble, lower amounts found in avocadoes (0.4 milligrams in one medium fruit) are better absorbed. Further, simply adding an avocado or oil-based dressing to raw, dark leafy green salads will increase intestinal absorption.

The same is true for egg yolks (0.2 milligrams per large egg). In a study of 33 older adults, published in The Journal of Nutrition, researchers found that consumption of one egg a day for five weeks significantly increased blood levels of lutein and zeaxanthin without raising cholesterol levels. According to the National Eye Institute and their Age-Related Eye Disease Studies (AREDS), additional nutrients that benefit eye health include vitamins C and E, and omega-3 fatty acids. When it comes to eating for eye health, here’s some more insightful advice:

1

Eat the “rainbow”. Choose a variety of colorful, organic fruits and vegetables daily; they are rich in eye-protecting carotenoids, flavonoids and vitamin C. Whole grains, nuts and seeds provide vitamin E, and fatty, cold-water fish such as sardines, salmon, tuna and mackerel are excellent sources of omega-3 fatty acids. Vegan sources of omega-3s include walnuts, ground

flax, hemp and chia seeds, or microalgae supplements.

practice focuses on releasing emotional patterns locked in tissue memory. “When the nervous system is frozen in a state of threat long after the actual threat is gone, all of the body’s activities of healthy regulation are challenged. This affects not only skeletal muscles, but also smooth muscle such as what’s found in the gastrointestinal tract. Sleep problems and teeth grinding can also result.”

Cellular Memory and CranioSacral Therapy Swedish massage, Thai massage and shiatsu are all ideal treatments for chronic pain, grief and emotional imprints locked within the body’s cellular consciousness. CranioSacral Therapy (CST) offers a gentler alternative. “CranioSacral Therapy can unravel cellular stories and assist in freeing repressed or preverbal emotions from childhood,” says Seattle-based CST therapist Barbara Coon. “Experiences are held in the body. Stress and muscular tension activate the vagus nerve, and CST focuses on calming [it].”

The vagus nerve facilitates communication between the brain and the heart, lungs and gut. Coon attests to the modality’s bodycentered support for reducing anxiety, depression, panic attacks, memory loss, sleep disturbances and grief. “Some people respond well to deep tissue work, while others do better with the gentleness of CranioSacral Therapy,” says Wheeler. “Like a perfect dance partner, a skilled bodywork practitioner follows the nervous system and helps the client access sources of trauma.”

Healing Frequencies Clinical aromatherapy and therapeutic sound can also play a vital role in emotional healing, especially when combined with bodywork. Kelli Passeri, a massage therapist and owner of Sound and Stone Massage, in Pittsburg, Kansas, utilizes a subwoofer speaker beneath her massage table so clients can feel the vibrations of the music. “I play music recorded in specific frequencies that align with the body and the chakras or

energy centers to help rebalance the energy body,” says Passeri, who also uses rose quartz crystals in her hot stone sessions. She relies on aromatherapy blends that promote opening on both physical and emotional levels. Passeri has observed common pain patterns in her clients that often don’t have a physical cause. “The sacrum tends to hold on to lifelong traumatic emotions from childhood, and the shoulders tend to reflect more current emotional blockages and issues,” she says, adding, “I encourage my clients to open up or cry because it’s a healthy thing to do. There’s no need for embarrassment and is totally okay.” Healing on any level might take time, but allowing the body’s stories to be witnessed without judgement is key. “The good news is that when trauma is worked through, the whole body is much more resilient and has a greater capacity to live life fully,” Wheeler says.

Appel’s research with collaborator Rex Cocroft, at the University of Missouri, demonstrates they’re listening for threats, too. Her lab exposed plants from the mustard family to the sound of a caterpillar feeding, with control plants in silence or “listening” to a recording of the wind or other insects, and found that those vibrations didn’t effect the same defensive-priming response as that of the plant-munching caterpillar. “Plants have no special sense organs, so their sophisticated sense of hearing is very surprising,” says Appel.

Nature’s Networks

Karban’s lab isolated plants to determine that their chemical signals were transmitted by air rather than soil or root systems. Yet researcher Suzanne Simard, a professor

Plants have no special sense organs, so their sophisticated sense of hearing is very surprising. ~Heidi Appel of forest ecology at the University of British Columbia, in Vancouver, is digging into the underground connections, finding that trees are interacting with one another below the ground in complex ways. Trees have a symbiotic relationship with fungi that’s built on a mutually beneficial exchange of nutrients, says Simard. This underground network links root systems of trees together, enabling them to exchange carbon, water and other nutrients in a kind of natural balance sheet. Simard discovered these networks had hubs—typically older “mother trees”—that can connect to hundreds of saplings and send them excess carbon that can quadruple their survival rates. Simard also found that trees engage

in “defense signaling” similar to plants, increasing their natural defenses in response to damage inflicted on their neighbors, but only if the mycorrhizal networks of fungi that aid in sending such messages are intact. Simard’s research seeks to understand how environmental threats like climate change and logging may further disrupt these communication networks. Recognizing all of the communication that exists between plants, we might wonder if human words of encouragement can help them grow. Perhaps, but not for the reasons one might hope, says Appel. “Whenever we feel a sense of connection to another life form, we are more likely to take better care of it,” says the researcher. “We underestimate what plants can do because their communication is invisible to us. Yet we also have to be careful about overestimating their abilities. We need an understanding to be driven by science, and not wishful thinking.” April Thompson is a freelance writer in Washington, D.C. Contact her at AprilWrites.com.

t’s May, and the temperature is rising, as is the sap and green shoots. It’s the perfect time to involve kids in growing their own garden that will get them outdoors, teach them planning and perseverance, and develop their motor, literacy and scientific skills. A South Korean study found that gardening provides both high- and moderate-intensity exercise for kids. It builds good eating habits, too: A British study of 46 9- and 10-year-olds found that they ate 26 percent more vegetables and fruit after growing a school garden, and a University of Florida study of 1,351 college students showed them more likely to eat veggies if they had gardened as children. For the most gratifying results, give kids a sense of ownership. “Let them make the decisions and be in charge of the care of the garden as much as developmentally possible,” advises Sarah Pounders, senior education specialist at KidsGardening.org, in Burlington, Vermont.

napalmbeach.com

Getting Started

Order some seed catalogues, look online—or better yet, take a child to the local garden nursery. Let them decide what to grow. Their choices are as diverse as their interests. Veggies, flowers and plants that draw butterflies each have their own appeal. Some, like sunflowers, radishes and lettuce, are fastgrowing, offering quick gratification. Or, they can choose a theme. “If your child likes Italian food, plant tomatoes and basil. If they enjoy Mexican food, then peppers and cilantro. For flowers—zinnias and cosmos—let them make flower arrangements from early summer into the fall,” suggests Susan Brandt, of Bristow, Virginia, co-founder of the gardening site BloomingSecrets.com. Visiting a plant nursery offers the perfect opportunity to put kids on the path to healthy living.

Choose the Spot

A three-foot-by-three-foot plot is an ideal size for a child’s garden, as long as it gets lots of sunshine. If living in an urban area, go with pots of soil in a sunny window.

Get the Right Tools

For young kids with short attention spans, small plastic spades, rakes and hoes might work. But older kids need hardier tools. Get them properly fitted garden gloves, plus sunhats and sunscreen.

Plant the Seeds

Help them read and interpret the seed package directions, if necessary, and use a ruler to measure proper spacing. “I always try to have a mix of plants that start from seed and from transplants, so that kids can have both immediate and delayed gratification,” says Pounders.

Water, Weed and Mulch

Show them how to use the watering can or hose properly, usually watering only when the soil is dry to a depth of one inch. They can mix their own non-toxic pesticide out

of vinegar and salt, and spread such organic mulches as straw, newspaper, grass clippings and leaves to discourage weeds.

Get Scientific

“They can look at the soil to see all the living creatures in it, which is especially fun through a microscope,” says Dixie Sandborn, an extension specialist at Michigan State University. “They can learn about vermiculture by making a worm bin and feeding the worms their table scraps.” With a ruler, they can measure the growth of various plants and create a chart comparing rates. By taking photos or drawing pictures on a daily or weekly basis, they can compile an album, along with their commentary on weather patterns.

Have Fun

“Let them add personal touches like stepping stones, signs and other decorations that let them express their personality in their garden space,” says Pounders. Help them build a scarecrow, bird feeder, toad house, bird bath, sundial or a tent. Make a teepee or small enclosure and cover it with flowers, vines or climbing beans.

Harvest the Crop

After picking ripe vegetables, kids can find recipes and prepare snacks or a dish; arrange plucked flowers in vases and take photos; do craft activities with seeds, plants and flowers, like making potpourri or framing dried flowers; or throw a garden-themed party with favors that include herbs or seed packets. “You could have a ‘pa-jam-a’ party. Kids could wear their pajamas, pick berries, and make jam to take home,” suggests Sandborn. Ronica A. O’Hara is a Denver-based freelance health writer. Connect at OHaraRonica@gmail.com.

CBD FOR PETS What We Need to Know

W

by Kajsa Nickels

ith the explosion of cannabidiol (CBD) products on the human medical scene, many pet owners are looking into this hemp plant derivative as a natural means of medicating their four-legged family members. A study conducted by the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine, in Ithaca, New York, found that CBD can be effective in treating some of the same ailments in pets as it does in humans. “I’ve used CBD on dogs and cats suffering from arthritis, anxiety and seizures,” says Angie Krause, DVM, a veterinarian with Boulder Holistic Vet, in Colorado. “I’ve even used CBD to treat cats with chronic respiratory infections.” Unlike CBD from marijuana, which in most cases is a Schedule I narcotic that the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration considers highly subject to abuse, CBD from industrial hemp contains less than 0.3 percent of the psychoactive component THC. It is legal under federal law and can be sold nationwide, subject to state regulations. However, choosing the right CBD product is complicated by the number of confusing options. “There are so many products on the shelves with different concentrations and formulations,” says Krause, who considers the extraction method used during production to be one of the most important factors. She favors CO2 (carbon dioxide) extraction over solvent extraction methods: “CO2 leaves no residue behind that could harm the bodies of small animals such as dogs and cats.” Stephen Cital, a veterinary technician in San Jose, California, co-founded the Facebook group Veterinary Cannabis Academy. He agrees that the purity of the extraction method is significant. He also notes that

Within three days, it was like I had a new dog. She no longer destroys things, she is calm, she is more engaged with her environment. ~Cindy Hesse price is not necessarily an indicator of quality. “A 30-cc bottle of CBD could cost $70 at a concentration of 700 milligrams [7 mg per cc]. However, it’s possible to find the same volume at the same price at a concentration of 1,000 milligrams [10 mg per cc].” Some products don’t contain CBD at all, only hemp extract, Cital explains. “For people who don’t understand the labeling, this can be very misleading.” CBD is one of 104 cannabinoids found in both industrial hemp and marijuana plants. Full-spectrum hemp extracts contain the entire profile of cannabinoids, including trace amounts of THC. Broad-spectrum hemp extracts contain everything but the THC. Cital says it’s always best to start with full- or broad-spectrum products for the “entourage effect”, in which the cannabinoids work in concert. Isolates of additional cannabinoids can be added as needed, he says. When choosing a product to purchase for a pet, he recommends going with companies that are able to present the consumer with a certificate of analysis by a third party. “The certificate will show

the complete profile of the CBD product, including cannabinoid, terpene, residual solvent, pesticide, bacteria, mycotoxin, fungicidal and elemental profiles,” he says. Cital notes that the elemental profile is especially important. “Hemp is very good at absorbing what is in its environment, including heavy metals such as lead.” Krause favors CBD products with minimal ingredients that “should be as simple as possible,” she says. “No xylitol, no artificial colors or sweeteners.” Cindy Hesse, of Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, also believes that CBD for pets should be as pure as possible. Her Cocker Spaniel, Reina, is both blind and deaf. Because of her handicaps, Reina experienced extreme anxiety to the point of destroying her metal crate, furniture and door frames. Reina’s vet put her on the antidepressant and antianxiety drugs Prozac and trazadone, but these only helped for a short period. After attending a CBD conference in Florida, her veterinarian decided to see if the compound might help the dog—his first patient to use CBD. The results, Hesse says, were amazing. “Within three days, it was like I had a new dog. She no longer destroys things, she is calm, she is more engaged with her environment. I recommend CBD oil to everyone I know who has a pet with health issues.” When deciding whether to give CBD to a pet, Krause and Cital recommend working with a veterinarian to ensure the proper dosage. “People can certainly work with CBD on their own with their pets,” says Krause, “but it’s important to get the dosing and concentration right to make it worthwhile.” Kajsa Nickels is a freelance writer and a music composer.

Rhodiola Rosea By William H. Stager, DO, MS, MPH, FAAFP, FAAMA, FAAO, FACOFP dist.

CONSCIOUS TREE TRIMMING Experienced, Licensed and Insured

Trees Big or Small - We Do Them All!

R Photo by Valery Cucalon

hodiola rosea, also known as “golden root”, is a perennial plant with yellow blossoms and a rose-like fragrance that grows mainly in the high altitudes of the arctic regions of Asia and Europe. There are about 50 species of Rhodiola throughout the world. It was first written about in Greek literature in 77 C.E., and has recently been “rediscovered” in the last century for its’ many properties. Since 1960, more than 180 research papers have been written about it. Rhodiola rosea has “adaptogen” properties. An adaptogen is a chemical that helps increase resistance and fight the effects of stress. R. rosea has adapted evolutionarily to the harsh climates of the cold northern regions by producing protective phytochemicals that in turn may help people and animals. In Siberian villages, R. rosea is still given as a bouquet to couples prior to their marriage to enhance strength, fertility, and to assure the birth of healthy children. Traditional cultures for centuries have used R. rosea to enhance and increase longevity, physical endurance and work, and treat fatigue, high altitude sickness, depression, anemia, headaches, arthritis, infections, tuberculosis, and cancer. Of the 50 species of Rhodiola, only R. rosea has passed toxicological tests and been certified safe for both humans and animals. There are six groups of phytochemicals in R. rosea, but the two most important ones for us are rosavin and salidroside. When you buy R. rosea, make sure that it contains those two compounds, and usually in the ratio of 3 percent rosavins and one percent salidroside, which is their ratio in nature. R. rosea is officially registered and recognized

Palm Beach Edition

as medicine in Russia, Sweden and Denmark. The normal dosage is 100-300 mg/day, as either a capsule or as a tea preparation. The toxicity level is so low in humans that it would take approximately 235,000 mg to cause death. It does not appear to have any interactions with other medicines, but since it is a stimulant, it is not recommended with other stimulants. It may be best taken on an empty stomach 30 minutes before eating. Without quoting the many research articles I found on R. rosea, I will list here some of its properties and abilities in brief: •

Antioxidant, immune enhancing, anticancer, antifatigue

Stimulates norepinephrine, dopamine, and serotonin in the central nervous system (these all work in our brain, and are antidepressant in action)

Enhance cognitive, attention, memory, and learning functions

Weight reduction

Increase strength, endurance, and shorten the recovery from prolonged muscular workouts

Increase resistance to high altitudes

Normalizes heart rate after intense exercise

Enhances immunity: stimulates Natural Killer cells and B cell activity

Enhance weight loss with exercise

Increased physical and mental performances of physicians on prolonged night call

Enhanced thyroid and thymus gland function

Regulated menstrual cycles

Enhanced fertility in both men and women

Used by Russian cosmonauts to increase strength and immunity.

Qi

The Force behind Blood Flow and Higher Intelligence

Interview with Qigong Practitioner Jeff Primack (Part 1 of 2) Conducted by Publisher Damon Damato

DD: Can you bring a Universal meaning to describe what is Qi?

DD: Is there significance to practicing Qigong in large groups?

JP: Qi is the electric life presence that beats the human heart and charges the air we breathe. Gong, like Gong Fu, is a repeated action to activate higher energy. Qigong generates a powerful magnetic field in the hands and this energy “dilates arteries”, healing what it touches. The effects of Qi are profound for increasing circulation and improving endocrine imbalances. Science will discover Qi is related to static electricity and can be harnessed with hand postures.

JP: From 1980 to 1999, the Chinese people gathered for Qigong events inside arenas and stadiums with tens-of-thousands of people. Dr. Yan Xin led this first wave of Qi awareness with integrity, but other fake masters misused Qigong to protest the government and Qigong was banned in large group settings. Chinese people had discovered the secret of “group energy” and it went beyond the roar of a rock concert or the cheers in a football game. Qigong was a weekly outing in China for two decades and people viewed it as an opportunity to be strengthened and healed while enjoying fellowship with friends. Qi sensations and internal benefits reach into the scientific minds of truth-seeking men and women. Where two or more practice Qigong sincerely, there exists a larger living field of energy and I believe it’s stronger when more people practice.

DD: Qi Revolution is coming to Kissimmee, Florida, for the National Event, June 22 to 24. What is your higher vision for sharing this kind of healing with a thousand people? JP: I believe when more human beings develop “Qi awareness”, human evolution will go higher. We hold our National Event once a year and transform a convention center into sacred space. 42

Palm Beach Edition

Our intention is to experience the authentic healing and stress-dissolving practices of Qigong in a strong group energy field. Sound, light and Qi graphics are used to improve learning so everyone can feel what is going on without any previous experience. It’s rare that one-thousand people all simultaneously inhale at the same second while holding the same healing prayer. Many people that attend heal old injuries and nearly everyone is strengthened by the energy. Our vision for this event is to uplift the group energy to the highest level to benefit all who attend.

napalmbeach.com

May 2019

DD: The breath work at the Qi Revolution is transformative. Since every


person is connected to it, do you believe the answers to healing and overcoming negative emotions are found here? JP: Breathing is the most powerful skill humans can learn to attune with the spirit of life. Genesis 2:7 reveals: “God breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” After teaching Qigong breathing to groups large and small, I would say there is a connection. People report euphoric vibrational experiences when they do our Breath Empowerment, even if they don’t believe Qi exists. Breathwork is the best Gong Fu; repeated deep breaths will break the veil of darkness and bad thoughts, eventually flooding the body with light energy.

DD: Can one become more peaceful and increase awareness from the breath? JP: A renowned surgeon, Perrin Clark, MD, from Daytona Beach, Florida, recently attended our national event. He told us he was super-stressed from telling five patients (on average days) they had some type of cancer. Dr. Clark’s job was to give bad news to patients and this caused him to hold his breath a lot! He now reports his stress has gone down dramatically since attending Qi Revolution and learning Qigong. As a result, he attended our trainings and was certified in both our Qigong and Food Healing programs.

DD: There are a number of healing routines within the Qi Revolution experience. Do you need to be fit to participate? Can one receive healing attributes if they are out of shape, ill or have other physical impairments? JP: People with injuries often experience pain relief doing Qigong in the first morning practices.

DD: You perform a Global Healing Circle that is legendary. How does it connect participants using the 9-Breath Method with an expanded process? We are okay with people practicing where their body is at and provide modified postures for those who need special assistance. People of all ages can benefit from Qigong’s challenge.

DD: I’ve seen a shift over the past few years where your focus has really zeroed in on food healing, especially in regards to food science. Why do you feel this is so important in today’s world and how does it relate to one’s personal Qi? JP: Food is key to excellent health, especially natural foods made before the inventions of man. Kiwi, for example, helped to “reverse asthma” in hundreds of students I’ve counseled. Moreover, the prestigious medical journal, Thorax, indicates, children who eat Kiwi three to five times a week versus those who don’t eat any have a much lower incidence of asthma.* My theories have science to back them. Proof is really in whether or not God’s kiwi really helps people breathe. Evidence shows kiwi should be suggested by allergists and breathing therapists to help children with this disease. Food affects our Qi by becoming our blood and the cells which carry oxygen to our brain. I teach that eating red foods (high in carotenoids) is the best way to stop the oxidative processes responsible for heart disease and brain degeneration. We make smoothies and serve sweet red pepper paste to all attendees so they can taste for themselves how delicious natural foods can be prepared.

JP: The living electricity felt in the hands of the healing circle is unlike anything else we teach. After everyone is proficient in using the 9-Breath Method, our signature breathing technique, we hold hands while doing it many times. The feeling is like an electric current going through everyone’s legs, arms and hands. It feels so very good! Delicious, I might say. We focus our mind to God and ask for healing of people we love and send light to noble groups and nations worldwide.

DD: You have vowed from the beginning to keep the cost of Qi Revolution in reach for all people and have even gone as far as to offer this healing for veterans free of charge. You offer CE hours for massage therapists, nurses and counselors for an incredible value. Share with me the importance of putting people over profit. JP: Qigong is not only for rich or materially successful people. Qi Revolution is made affordable at $199/all three days, to open the qi door for more people. Massage therapists love the training and earn 24 CE hours. U.S. veterans attend free and each year hundreds have attended and many have become our best Qigong instructors. Qi Revolution takes place June 22 to 24, at Kissimmee Heritage Park Center, in Kissimmee. For more information and tickets, call 800-298-8970 and/or visit QiRevolution.com.

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