newsbriefs Book Claims that God’s True Identity is Holy Spirit

T

he Holy Mother Mary Is GOD is a non-denominational book that reveals great mysteries and explains that the Holy Spirit, the Divine Feminine, Mother God came to this Earth as the Holy Mother Mary. The authors, Kevin Peter Kelly and Marina Nikole Kelly, say that the book is written not only in their own voice and words, but also through the voice and words of God, Jesus, Malachi and Saint Germain about a divine plan that started 2,600 years ago. “This book is for everyone, no matter what system of belief one holds,” explain the authors. “We are from one spirit, and the source of that spirit is Holy Spirit.” The book proposes that the oneness of all exists in three aspects and that the third aspect of God, Holy Spirit has been misinterpreted. It promises to help to cultivate the soil that will allow new seeds to grow into a balanced world of divine feminine and divine masculine. “Like a great gateway, The Holy Mother Mary Is GOD is intended to usher us into the new age that will bring us into a world of peace,” say the Kellys. The Holy Mother Mary Is GOD is available as a paperback, hardcover or e-book through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other booksellers.

newsbriefs WHY THE POOR RESPONSE TO DETOX AND CLEANSING?

I

n the past decades, our environment has become increasingly contaminated with toxic substances such as food additives, pesticides, medications, industrial chemicals and heavy metals. Our body is exposed to heavy loads of toxins and required to metabolize and eliminate them. In addition, our fast-paced lifestyle has stressed the body’s normal functions and pushed it beyond its natural capabilities of detoxification. Last but not least, excess sugar and overuse of antibiotics in humans and animals have caused yeast overgrowth in our digestive tract. This yeast is called Candida albicans and produces a secondary toxin called mycotoxin which is responsible for many inflammatory diseases. Eating organic food and drinking purified water are no longer sufficient to help the body detoxify. We are being inadvertently exposed to toxins from inside and outside of our body, everywhere, throughout the day and night. Accumulation of the toxins can seriously weaken our immune system and trigger inflammatory response that causes non-specific symptoms. Low level toxicity can be very difficult to detect. Conventional medical testing often does not have an explanation. Some of the most apparent symptoms of toxicity include: Fatigue Headaches Rashes Joint aches Ringing in the ear Sinus congestion Swollen glands Hair loss Hormonal imbalances Difficulty concentrating/mental fog Depression, anxiety Dizziness Restlessness Irritability Many healthcare practitioners have become aware of the damages that toxins, especially Candida albicans, can cause to the human body and use various methods to treat it. Natural detoxification herbs and foods are commonly available to assist in the detox and cleanse process. These natural supplements include dandelion, milk thistle, turmeric, garlic, green tea, cilantro, alfalfa, black walnut, wormwood, aloe vera, acai, etc. However, not everybody responds well to detoxification therapies, especially to intestinal cleansing. When the Candida cells are killed, mycotoxin is emitted and added to the body’s already toxic overload. This sudden increase shocks our detox organs. Thus, many people experience an increase of the symptoms, a condition called detox response. The detox response symptoms include the ones listed

12

Palm Beach Edition

above as well as: Body aches, increased need for sleep, anger, hypoglycemia, insomnia, extreme weakness, frequent urination, soft stool, etc. Many people eventually give up the detox program due to severe detox response. However, detox response can be successfully avoided if we understand the causes and the root issues for toxin accumulation in the first place. The human body is a powerful self-detoxification machine. The majority of detoxification and elimination is carried out by four systems: digestive and urinary systems—the main detox pathways; respiratory system and skin—the minor pathways. If these systems are not working well, especially if the liver function is compromised, the toxins will accumulate and cause problems. The main reason for detox response is the malfunction and overload of the detox organs and systems, like the liver and kidneys. Digestive issues such as constipation or diarrhea, food allergy and sensitivities, often cause the blockage of toxin elimination and the recycling of the toxins through “leaky gut”, an increased permeability of intestinal lining due to the damage by pathogenic microbial and the body’s inability to heal itself. Kidney stress by dehydration or chronic urinary tract infection with Candida infection also blocks toxin elimination through the urinary system. Liver malfunction due to drinking alcohol, insufficient sleep, emotional stress and taking drugs or medications is also common cause for detox response. Without opening up the detox pathways, a sudden increase of antioxidants in diet or taking detox and cleansing supplements may result in “yeast dying off”, which releases toxins in digestive tract, leading to a “ping-pong” effect—toxins bouncing back and forth inside the body. High toxicity throughout the body leads to high inflammation and results in severe detox response. People with highly sensitive body easily develop detox response. A highly sensitive nervous system often causes chaotic communications on the cellular level, which results in hyperactive immune response, depleted cellular energy and blockage of detox function. Thus, a preparation stage before detoxification therapies is absolutely necessary to prevent detox response during detoxification programs and treatments. First step of this preparation stage is to get the digestive function corrected. Preparing digestive function is the most important step towards a complete detoxification. Although this step doesn’t cleanse Candida, pathogenic bacteria or parasites, we improve digestive function by substituting unhealthy foods with healthy ones to lighten the workload of our digestive system. Commonly recognized unhealthy foods, such as refined sugar, dairy and wheat products, should be eliminated as much as possible, while fiber, complex carbohydrates and protein should be added. Identifying and eliminating allergic food are important, while food desensitization and a rotation diet also help to avoid

napalmbeach.com


immune response to everyday food and to re-achieve digestive function. Adequate sleep is another vital factor in a detoxification program. A healthy adult needs eight hours of quality sleep to allow the body to detox and recharge energy. Sleep deficit is one of the main causes for modern people to accumulate toxins in the body. A busy working schedule makes the body produce more toxins while lack of sleep causes less detox. In the meantime, adding more time for relaxation and exercise during the day also helps the detox process. Drinking lots of water during the detox program is also important. Dehydration stresses the kidneys. Many toxic products, such as heavy metals, mycotoxin and endotoxin rely on the kidney pathway to be eliminated. Meanwhile, liver is the organ that always needs to be supported during detox therapies. Avoiding alcohol and unnecessary medications helps to reduce liver’s toxin burden. Consulting with a healthcare professional specializing in detoxification to support liver, kidney and intestines with natural remedies can be the key to successfully prevent detox response during detoxification program. Dr. Harry Hong is a licensed acupuncturist specializing in holistic healing for the highly sensitive person. He teaches highly sensitives to listen to their body and take charge of their own health. With his systematic IBMT protocol that includes Chinese medicine, modern homeopathy, energetic testing and allergy desensitization, Dr. Hong helps highly sensitive people gain back their immune strength and get their life back. He has offices in both South Florida and Chicago. Visit HighlySensitiveBody. com or email HarryGHong@Hotmail.com.

newsbriefs DIFFERENT CAUSES OF OBESITY AND TREATMENT WITH TCM

W

ith years of clinical experience in successfully treating weight loss Dr. Meng has found many patients misunderstand obesity; often thinking only of body fat. Many people only focus on trying to lower body fat and are often disappointed by the lack of results. What is Obesity? Obesity is medically defined as being 20% or higher above the normal weight and is typically divided into two types: pathological and physiological. Pathological obesity refers to weight gain due to factors that can be changed, such as diet, lifestyle, curing temporary illness, adjusting medications, etc. Physiological obesity refers to people whose bodily function is more deeply impaired such as in cases of endocrine and genetic disorders, and physical trauma such as brain damage or organ removal. Pathological types of obesity can be treated with Tradition Chinese Medicine (TCM) very effectively and with great results whereas physiological types are much more difficult and in some cases impossible to treat. While fat is the most obvious source of extra weight it’s not the only one and for some people it is not even the most

important one. The accumulation of wastes inside the intestines, water retention, stress and hormonal imbalances also affect both weight gain and retention. What Causes Obesity? Stress is one of the most common causes of obesity and has two main ways that it leads to weight gain. The first is stress eating; whereby stress results in the urge to eat not to satisfy hunger but as a means of coping with the stress. Chronic stress impairs the functioning of the internal organs, interferes in fat metabolism, and promotes fat storage, all of which results in weight gain. Excessive secretions of gastric acid, which causes intense feelings of hunger that return shortly after eating, is another cause of obesity. People who have this type of obesity basically feel hungry all the time and that feeling of hunger is only very temporarily relieved by eating. In TCM this type of person is said to have a “roaring fire in the stomach”. Another cause of weight gain can be chronic constipation. With chronic constipation the fecal matter can become hard and compact and can interfere in the proper functioning of the large intestine. It

becomes a snowball effect; the more fecal matter builds up the harder it becomes to remove it and the harder it becomes for the intestine to function correctly. Hormone imbalance is another cause of obesity and affects women more often than men. During menopause, because of low levels of activity and hormonal imbalance, women are more susceptible to weight gain. Hormonal imbalances, in both men and women, can also trigger stress or emotional eating and thus lead to weight gain. Water retention is one of the more serious causes of obesity. Acute edema, which can be caused by illness, allergy, or poor diet is generally much easier to treat than chronic edema. In TCM there are two types of edema; yin and yang, which roughly are equivalent to chronic and acute. Often times with chronic/yin edema weight loss is not possible until the body functions, especially those regarding water metabolism, are improved. How can Dr. Meng Help with Obesity? Regardless of the cause or type of obesity all people trying to lose weight need to watch what they eat. In TCM all foods have different qualities or properties and some foods that would be beneficial for one person may actually aggravate the condition of another. For example, someone with a cold should eat lots of garlic and ginger, whereas someone with stomach fire should avoid them. Therefore the standard dietary approach of many weight loss programs, whereby all patients are given the same diet to follow, is not optimal and can be an impediment to weight loss. Dr. Meng’s weight loss program is unique because unlike most other approaches where one size/style/method fits all, each patient receives unique and customized treatment to maximize their individual weight loss success. Dr. Meng draws from years of personal experience and the rich history of TCM to develop the best course of treatment for each individual, whether it is acupuncture, food therapy, herbs, cupping, gua sha, or a combination of therapies.

newsbriefs The Gem and Mineral Society of the Palm Beaches presents their 47th Annual Gem, Mineral, Jewelry, Bead and Fossil Show November 23-24th at The South Florida Fairgrounds

T

he roots of The Gem and Mineral Society of the Palm Beaches reach back to the latter part of the 1960s. At that time a group of like-minded mineral and jewelry enthusiasts would gather at different homes to discuss their interest in these fields. In January, 1966 the Society was officially chartered as a Florida corporation, with its stated purpose being to provide a place for gem and mineral collectors to gather and share in their hobby. Throughout the years, the Society has shared and spread its vast knowledge into the community. This was achieved in part by presenting a series of hands-on mineral lectures to various Palm Beach Schools.

The Society’s largest public outreach is its annual show. Each year, for the weekend before Thanksgiving, the Gem and Mineral Society takes over the Expo East Building of the South Florida Fairgrounds to hold its Gem, Jewelry, Bead and Fossil Show. The show features a wide array of dealers who carry merchandise from all over the world. Additionally, Society members come out to spread the word and educate visitors about the Society and the hobby. The show features a Demonstration Area, where members showcase the many classes offered to members of the Society. In the past, the Society has had special exhibits that greet visitors upon entering

the Expo building. Past attractions have included: a Moon Rock from Apollo 17, two Ruby statues weighing several thousand carats each, and a life-size photo of a Mastodon skeleton (as well as actual bones from the dig) that the Society helped unearth in Palm Beach County. One of the Show’s biggest attractions is our Mining Flume. This is a running water flume where guests can buy buckets containing filler materials and rough mineral specimens. Sitting at the flume, visitors sift through the materials in the buckets, guided by Society members who help visitors identify what they find. Visitors can keep anything they find in the bucket, and kids love taking home their beautiful stones. The Society also has a Fossil Dig. Kids love digging in the sand to find and keep real Florida fossils. Again guided by members, the kids learn about the fossils they are finding, and are always thrilled to leave with a bag of bones! Gem Society members love to share their knowledge with the public and generate new interest. Within the Society, classes are always ongoing for members who want to further their skills. Classes include cabochon cutting, faceting, wire wrapping, chain maille, beading, enameling and so much more. Scholarships are also awarded to members to attend one of two lapidary schools; Wildacres or William Holland. The Gem and Mineral Society of the Palm Beaches remains a thriving organization that aspires to share knowledge and join people together through a common interest. Whether out in the community or attending small classes within the Society, our members love to swap information and skill sets with anyone willing to learn. The Society will celebrate its 50th birthday in 2016 still going strong and sharing a love of stones with the world! Join the fun at the the South Florida Fairgrounds Expo Center on November 23rd and 24th. For more information call 561-585-2080. or visit: www.gemandmineral.cc or

newsbriefs YOGA FOR THE HAPPY FAMILY!

F

ew years ago I was taking a yoga workshop in New Jersey with a senior Iyengar teacher. She posed a question: “why are we doing yoga? “ There were many answers coming from the room, mostly related to health benefits. But what got my foremost attention was the teacher’s answer: “ We do it for the fun of it. To twist, stretch, and move around is pleasant and enjoyable, a body holiday.” This can be exactly the reason that can attract your family and you to yoga practice. Knowing how busy our lives can be, let’s start small and give our yoga practice just ten minutes in the morning, right after waking up, and ten minutes in the evening, before going to sleep. To begin with, instead of rushing through the morning routine, let’s take things easy, be kind to ourselves, and our bodies will respond in unbelievable ways. First, take a moment and be grateful for another day. Say to yourself: “In this moment all is well, “ or create another affirmation that appeals to you on this particular morning. One of my favorites is: “I am truly someone special. I love myself.” Then, notice your breath, and take few slow and deep inhalations and exhalations. Follow with simple stretches. All together it will take few minutes, but will give you a different perspective for a day. Perhaps, now it would be the time for other members of your family to get up. Some children have a hard time waking up. They don’t all just bounce out of bed eager to start the day. A nice way to help your child get ready for the day is by putting on some yoga music, for example “Feeling Good Today” by Snatam Kaur, from her album of the same title. Among my other favorites are: “I Love my Yoga” and “Getting Up for Yoga” from “Happy Child “ CD, and “Reach for the Sun” from “Fitness Fun Tunes” CD. We can then encourage our child/children to take few Balloon Breaths. To energize the body with fresh breath I recommend the kids’ favorite, Sun Breath. They love breathing in when reaching up with their arms toward the sun, grasping a piece of sunshine with their hands, pulling it down their bodies, and shouting “hot” when putting it on their bellies. Repeating the movement

few times always bring a lot of smiles and red cheeks on their faces. After few breaths, we can start stretching our bodies with “Wake Up Poses.” We can pretend we are cats, when we get on our fours and start moving our bodies with Happy Cat Stretches. My favorite song for this pose with younger children is “Cat Stretch” from “Animal Walks” CD. For older children I like to play music from “Sa Ta Na Ma” CD by Cherdi Kala. I noticed that this melodic and rhythmic mantra encourages self-awareness and breathing when repeating the upward and downward movements of the spine. Then we can roll on our backs, open our knees wide, place hands on our feet and try to rock from side to side in Happy Baby. Trying to keep balance in this posture usually brings a lot of laughter. Then, when still on our backs, we can lift our hips for the Bridge Pose and let the imaginary boats go under with Toot, Toot sound. For older children, 6 and up, Sun Salutations with the song from “Dance for the Sun” CD by Kira Willey, works great. In the evening, it could be another occasion to experience yoga as a family, which you and your child can enjoy together. Yoga can help ease the transition from a busy day to sleep by calming the mind and relaxing the body. Like in the morning, the practice could be short, no more than 10 min, or it could be extended for longer amount of time. Music, relaxation exercises, and calming poses all work to relax the central nervous system and create a sense of calm and inner peace. For relaxing yoga music see Resource List suggestions. When listening to music, practice a few relaxing /calming poses, such as Air Walk, Huggy Bear, Twist and Blow, Lemon Toes, and Grasping the Sky Exercise, and Legs Up the Wall (Viparita Karani). The rest of the bedtime family yoga can be listening to relaxing yoga stories or visualizations. Some possibilities are: Magic Island. Relaxation for Kids by Betty Mehling, Max Highstein and Radha Delamarter, Believe in Yourself. A child’s bedtime story for raising self-esteem for 3 to 9 year olds by Joy Frost M.A., Patti Teel’s the Floppy Sleep Game by Patti Teel. Another wonderful opportunity for family to practice yoga is during the time of the day when we just want to play and have fun as a family. Everybody is welcome to participate, moms, dads, siblings, grandparents, friends, neighbors, etc. The more the better. Let’s call it a Lighthearted Family Yoga Time. It will lift everybody’s spirit and make everybody laugh. It will enhance your relationships and bring more love and joy into daily life with your children. If possible, try to set aside a specific time of the day or the day of the week so it becomes a regular activity for your family. Play a yoga game, try some partner poses, read a fun book and do some poses. Most of all have a lot of fun!

newsbriefs DR CRAIG BROWN ON WHOLISTIC HEALTH MEDITATION AND EXPANSIVE WHOLISTIC HEALTH

W

hen I was 5 years old, I wanted to be a Martial Artist. The amazing Bruce Lee, later became my hero, and mentor. I studied his beliefs, his techniques (Jeet Kune Do), and most importantly, his energy. After I learned the techniques of Mixed Martial Arts and Self Defense (coming soon my ‘Weight Training and Self Defense’ training videos on our website for your viewing), I realized that we all have an this energy, a life force within us, that is more powerful than how physically fit, strong, or even how fast we are. I discovered that the coupling of the ‘mind’ and the ‘energy within’ can be not only an amazing ‘healing force’ but also the most powerful force we have to optimize all of our abilities. This coupling of the mind, the inner energy and the ‘physical’ can create what modern science and medicine call, if not the impossible, the improbable. I see in the near future, this combination being utilized so much more. It is already in the sports field, and in healing. Bruce Lee, among many others, top in their field, (either Physical Athletics or Mind Athletics) have used it routinely, weather they knew it or not.

When I was 19, I needed to put on 30 pounds and quickly for sports. I wanted to compete in the heavy weight class. I did it the old fashioned way...all very wrong! My blood pressure and heart rate, went up far more than a 19 years old’s should. I also had the stress of competing for professional school, and becoming a doctor. I worked and did research with a Doctor who utilized Biofeedback machines to monitor your ‘brain waves’ (Beta/Alpha/ Theta/Delta). I introduced my ‘form’ of meditation to him. I loved the progress we made and the process itself! Not only did I reduce my High BP, and my heart rate, to normal again, but worked with people with ulcers, and other forms of gastric diseases, along with other stress related health problems and immune deficiencies. We soon learned, as I practice and teach this today, that stress can and does raise our Cortisol, Adrenalin, and Insulin levels...all when in excess are quite toxic to our bodies thus challenge our life force. As for me, as I realized movement, such as in defense, couple with relaxation (mind gymnastics) was the very key to winning tournaments, sinking a basket while playing hoops, or just plain deep breathing through a stressful moment, when relaxation is crucial. When I learned how to couple my relaxation technique, and drew on my inner energy, I had pin point accuracy, and explosive final impact in whatever I was doing. This I realized could be utilized in every aspect of life. And to this day, I am still discovering new and different avenues to improve efficiency by utilizing what I have been fortunate enough to discover. Expansive Wholistic Health’s ‘relaxation techniques’ are not only therapeutic, but introspective, leading you to a combination of inner peace, coupled with inner strength and outer vitality and energy. The CD will help you get ‘deeper’ and more relaxed each and every time you practice. Expansive Wholistic Health Meditation can be used with some other of Expansive Wholistic Health protocols, including grounding, for example, to help get a deeper sleep with quicker onset. It can help with one of the pieces of the puzzle, to reduce our life threatening enemy, ‘inflammation’. We can use it to get a mid day repair and rejuvenation lift to power you through the rest of the day, and, as many studies show, add to longevity. Yoga masters, All Athletes, Bodybuilders, Martial Artists, Creative Artists and Thinkers would benefit greatly from practicing going into Dr. Craig Brown’s Expansive Wholistic Health meditation as often as possible.

newsbriefs The Power of Holistic Learning Environments The built environment plays such a pivotal role in how we think, work, and learn. Within the classroom setting, we have an even greater responsibility and opportunity to create a setting that fosters collaboration, inspires creative thinking, tells a narrative, and provides flexibility.

~Erin Ferry

O

ur children spend the greater majority of their waking hours in schools. They are surrounded not only by people that directly influence their way of thinking, but by a physical environment that sets the stage for this to happen. A school is equal to more than the sum of its parts, and it is imperative that parents find a learning environment that best matches the needs of their children. Research has shown that the physical space that surrounds us has a direct effect on our psyche and well being. Why then do we choose to send our children to schools that look and run more like prisons when there are other alternatives? We feed and nurture our body, mind, and spirit with healthy foods, exercises, and spiritual activities. As parents, we must choose learning environments that do the same for our children. A holistic learning environment must provide elements that nurture both the physical and emotional realm of the child. Learning environments such as these should consist of large gathering spaces for students to share ideas, round tables to promote collaboration, quiet thinking spaces for introspection, wall spaces to make students’ thinking visible, and elements of the natural world throughout. Students should have multiple surface areas in which they can freely document their learning as it happens and continuously add to it as the days and weeks go on. A holistic learning environment supports and embraces the idea of learning being fluid, messy, and fueled by the learners’ passions and curiosity, not segmented, fractured, or stoic. This idea of holistic learning spaces extends far beyond school and more and more is being adopted by some of the most

innovative and powerful companies in the world such as Google. In just 15 years, Google has gone from a humble search engine- to an integral part of the daily lives of millions. The company has grown from a two person startup to a worldwide employer with over 30,000 employees. They have been able to meet and exceed the demand for success and innovation because of the thought and implementation they put into the physical work environment. Google understands that in order to get the highest productivity from its employees, it must provide a space for thinking to happen naturally, creatively, and freely. There is no denying the monumental successes of the company and its employees, so why not model our youths’ learning environments to do the same? Imagine what we could accomplish if we provided students with a learning space built on a culture of thinking and imbibed with student empowerment. If you think a schools like this simply don’t exist, then I invite you to look beyond the traditional school. More and more learning environments are acknowleding that changes must be made, and slowly but surely they are being adopted across

the globe. The Global Prospective School (GPS),a learning center in downtown West Palm Beach, fulfills a vision to provide an all encompassing learning space for students, and it is evident from the moment you enter. The classrooms' settings physically represent GPS's mission to encourage students to question, reason, and analyze while fostering their intellectual curiosity as they develop into life-long learners. This two room "school house" provides wide open spaces to enhance collaboration and team building skills, as well as smaller nooks for independent study. There are vibrant rooms to inspire creativity, rooms designed for use with green screen technology, and even a student built aquaponic gardening system. There is no doubt that the teachers of Global Prospective School have taken careful measures to ensure that the physical landscape and design of the school have been carefully crafted to fuel intellectually curious children, stimulate their senses, and promote internal growth and development.

newsbriefs It’s Time to Love and Care For Your Body, No Matter What

E

ven though bodies naturally come in a plethora of diverse shapes, sizes and colors, the media of the modern world constantly bombards us with messages of bodily inadequacy. Commercials for shampoo and conditioner tell us that our hair isn’t straight or shiny enough. Photoshopped images of models and actors tell us or skin isn’t smooth or clear enough, and our teeth aren’t white enough. And, a 60 billion dollar diet industry makes sure we believe that our bodies are never thin or toned enough. In this climate it is no wonder that only 3% of women feel comfortable calling themselves beautiful. This statistic says a lot about how we feel about ourselves but it also says a lot about how we define beauty ideals. Suffice to say, that for many of us it is really hard to feel good, confident and positive about our bodies. Learning to love your body is a process that takes hard work and the desire to shift your perspective, but the following body positive tips are a great place to start:

two sizes smaller than the jeans we’re wearing now. Those jeans aren’t healthy for you. No one is telling you to never get thinner or that thinner is not in your future. All we’re saying here is that those jeans are a talisman to your dislike for the current incantation of your body. Every time you see them in your closet they serve as a reminder that your current body isn’t the body you wish it would be. Maybe someday they will fit again and maybe they won’t. It doesn’t matter. You don’t need them. And really let’s be honest, if your body changes and they fit again they wont even be fashionable anymore, so what are you keeping them for? Stop punishing your body for changing and start loving the skin your in.

1. Introduce some body-positive media into your life. Waterdown all the media that tells us our bodies are horrific with some media that tells us our bodies are prefect. Start reading body-positive blogs or following body-positive Pinterest boards. There are a ton of body-positive media-makers out there writing about body acceptance, fashion for all kinds of bodies, media literacy, and personal experiences. Body positive people and media reminds us to love and care for our bodies rather than torture them. You might get started by following these blogs: Stop Hating Your Body, Extraordinary Being, The Rotound, Gabi Fresh, or Virgie Tovar but don’t stop there. Do a google search. Find your own fabulous body-positive media.

5. Ditch negative talk and embrace compliments. How often do you hear people around you say negative things about their bodies? Or worse how often do you critique your own body? Do you look the mirror and ridicule your thighs? Do you see your self in pictures and think, “How did I leave the house with my hair like that?” Stop. Literally, when you catch your self saying or thinking something negative just stop. Instead, actively take the time to replace that negative with a compliment. Find the things you like about yourself – your fantastic singing voice, your long eyelashes, your shapely calves. It doesn’t matter what your learn to love first, just begin the process.

2. Enjoy using your body. This is not the age-old exercise is what makes you healthy speech (although it does). This is something else. This is a date with your body – a moment when you stop and consciously do something with your body that you do well and enjoy. It doesn’t matter what it is. You can reenact the dance scene from Risky Business. You can do a cartwheel in the mall. You can sing Madonna songs on the top of your lungs during your commute. Or you could run on the treadmill. It doesn’t matter. What matters is that you enjoy yourself and your body, and when your done make a mental note that you love being you. Look in the mirror and say, “Thanks, body.” It sounds ridiculous but reminding yourself how cool and powerful you are is pretty amazing stuff. 3. Throw out your skinny jeans (or whatever piece of clothing you harbor hoping it will fit again). We all have ‘em. That pair of jeans that is literally from a lifetime ago and at the very least

4. Eat things that actually fuel your cells. Rather than focusing on getting thin, focus on nourishing your body. Eat in response to your body’s hunger. Eat a variety of things. Eat ripe, sweet fruits. Eat colorful salads. Eat fresh, nutrient filled foods. Eat these things because your body needs them, not because they will make your body prettier or thinner. Food is not the enemy. Food is a necessary part of everyday. Don’t deprive yourself; nourish yourself.

Taking the time to be aware of your body’s spectacular power, to recognize that all bodies are dynamic and extraordinary is the very first step towards living a positive and healthy existence. Many of us spend way too much time worrying about perfecting our bodies, time which would be much better spent dedicated to activities that fill our lives with joy. Ultimately, understanding that there is no perfect body allows us the freedom to embrace our imperfections as delightfully unique and valuable, and once you know that you are well on your way to being a self-confident dynamo who proudly proclaims, I love my body.

Mindful Meditation Relieves Inflammation

A

new University of Wisconsin-Madison study shows that meditation, a proven reducer of psychological stress, can also lessen stress-caused inflammation and thereby relieve the symptoms and pain of certain diseases. Long-term stress has long been linked to inflammation, an underlying cause of many diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis, bowel disease, asthma, heart disease and Type 2 diabetes. Meditation study volunteers were divided into two groups—an eight-week mindfulness meditation course or a stress reduction program of supportive nutrition, exercise and music therapy that did not include meditation. The meditation group focused attention on the breath, bodily sensations and mental content while seated, walking or practicing yoga. Immune and endocrine data was collected before and after training in the two methods and meditation proved to be more effective. Melissa Rosenkranz, a neuroscientist with the university’s Center for Investigating Healthy Minds and lead author of the report, concludes that, “The mindfulness-based approach to stress reduction may offer a lower-cost alternative or complement to standard treatment, and it can be practiced easily by patients in their own homes whenever needed.”

Tanning Beds Invite Melanoma

A

s summer tans fade, some might feel tempted to use tanning beds to keep a “healthy glow”, but they may be less than healthy. A recent multicountry meta-study published in the British Medical Journal confirms that exposure to a tanning bed’s intense doses of ultraviolet light significantly increases the risk of cutaneous melanoma, the deadliest type of skin cancer. Of the 64,000 new melanoma cases diagnosed each year in Europe, more than 5 percent were linked by researchers to tanning bed use. Users experience a 20 percent increased relative risk of all types of skin cancer compared with those that have never used one. This risk doubles if indoor tanning starts before the age of 35, and the risk increases with every session.

HAPPY LIFE, HEALTHY HEART

F

eelings matter when it comes to protecting a person’s physical health. Researchers at Boston’s Harvard School of Public Health reviewing more than 200 studies published in two major scientific databases found a direct correlation between positive psychological well-being and a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, including heart attacks and strokes. They concluded that positive feelings like optimism, life satisfaction and happiness are associated with the reduced risk, regardless of a person’s age, weight or socioeconomic or smoking status.

ROSEMARY REVS UP MEMORY

R

osemary’s folkloric reputation for improving memory has been validated by science. UK researchers at London’s Northumbria University found that when the essential oil of rosemary was diffused into a room—a method practiced in aromatherapy—it enhanced participants’ ability to remember past events and remind themselves to do tasks planned for the future, like sending an anniversary card. Mark Moss, Ph.D., head of psychology at Northumbria, says, “We wanted to build on our previous research that indicated rosemary aroma improved long-term memory and mental arithmetic. In this study, we focused on prospective memory, which is critical for everyday functioning.” In the study, 66 people randomly assigned to either a rosemary-scented or unscented room were asked to complete a variety of tests to assess their memory functions. Those in the rosemary-scented room outperformed the control group. Blood analysis of those exposed to the rosemary aroma confirmed higher concentrations of 1,8-cineole, the oil’s compound specifically linked to memory improvement. The researchers concluded that the aroma of rosemary essential oil can enhance cognitive functioning in healthy individuals and may have implications for treating people with memory impairment. The findings were presented at the British Psychological Society Annual Conference, in Harrogate.


Walnuts Strengthen Sperm

A

dding a handful of walnuts to a man’s daily diet might just increase the chance of pregnancy for couples with fertility problems. Scientists attribute male infertility as the central issue in 30 to 50 percent of the 70 million couples worldwide experiencing such difficulties. Researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles, investigated whether increasing intake of the polyunsaturated fatty acids found in fish, flax seed and walnuts that are critical for sperm maturation and membrane function would increase sperm quality in men consuming a typical Western-style diet. They found that less than three ounces of walnuts added to a man’s daily diet improved sperm strength, size and motility (swimming ability). The men eating the walnuts also showed fewer chromosomal abnormalities in their sperm.

The Killer Called Sugar

A

new animal study from the University of Utah, in Salt Lake City, reports daunting results. Female mice that consumed the equivalent of a human drinking three cans of soft drinks a day doubled their death rate from all causes. The study further showed that fertility rates dropped dramatically in male mice and their innate ability to defend their territory diminished. All of the sugar-saturated mice performed poorly on cognitive tests. The lab mice received a diet in which 25 percent of their total calories came from sugar (not high fructose corn syrup, which carries substantial additional health risks). That’s an amount commonly consumed in the Standard American Diet, easy to do in one sitting via a super-sized soft drink.

When you rise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life, for your strength. Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason to give thanks, the fault lies in yourself.

ecotip Digital Detox

Unplug to Cut Stress, Up Success Whether it’s extreme texting, tweeting, Googling, posting or blogging, the phenomenon of being caught in the web of the Web is real. Rationalizations range from coping with today’s information overload to fear of missing out (FOMO). Yet, detriments of such continual digital connectedness range from the stifling of family and social bonds to a lack of life skills that only face-to-face communication fosters. In 2011, The New York University Child Study Center reported that 8-to-18-year-olds average more than six hours of daily media use and that school grades of a surveyed group that considered themselves “heavy” users were considerably lower than their “light” use counterparts. Stanford Communications Professor Clifford Nass, author of The Man Who Lied to His Laptop, remarked in a 2013 NPR interview that people that do extensive media multitasking “can’t filter out irrelevancy, can’t manage memory and are chronically distracted. They say they are productive and can ‘shut it off’, but can’t keep on task and focus on one thing.” Fortunately, programs to unplug are catching on. More than 400 middle and high schools in 20 U.S. states plus Canada took a Digital Blackout Challenge to refrain from using electronic devices for one week during the 2012-2013 school year (DigitalBlackout.org). From Chief Sealth International High School, in Seattle, Washington, senior Marissa Evans says the experience informed her “there’s a balance between ‘too much’ and ‘just enough’” in being connected, and classmate Alex Askerov terms the Challenge “a breath of fresh air.” For the 2013 documentary film, Sleeping with Siri, Seattle-based journalist Michael Stusser underwent a oneweek, self-assessed “techno gorge”, followed by a digital detox of the same duration. During stage one, he said his blood pressure went up 40 points after four days. He found, “You’re always waiting for a response.” He subsequently enjoyed being disconnected. Foresters, a Toronto, Ontario-based life insurance provider, asks families to take a Tech Timeout pledge for at least one hour every day and make Sundays entirely non-tech, packed with family activities and socializing.

Giving Group

Millennials Devote Time, Talent, Treasure Much is rightly written about how and why “millennials”, or “Generation Y”—the young people heading into the 21st century—spend their time and money. This generation is redefining the way we think about business, and conscious consumerism is now its own form of philanthropy. This age group is leading the charge by extending the premise of a moral compass to for-profit enterprises and looking for ever-more meaningful opportunities to have an impact. The trend carries fresh implications for the nonprofit sector, too, because millennials lead the way in forwarding worthy causes. When The Case Foundation partnered with Achieve, a thought leader in nonprofit millennial engagement, to produce the Millennial Impact Report, researchers surveyed more than 2,500 millennials ages 20 to 35. They found that last year, 83 percent gave a financial gift to an organization supporting a cause that resonates with their interests. Seventy-three percent volunteered for a cause that they were passionate about or felt created impact, and 70 percent are raising money for their causes both online and offline.

Frack Attack

Controversial Drilling Threatens Pacific Ocean Federal regulators have approved at least two hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking”, operations on oil rigs in the Santa Barbara Channel off the coast of California since 2009 without an updated environmental review that critics say may be required by federal law. Environmental advocates are concerned that regulators and the industry have not properly reviewed the potential impacts of fracking in the Pacific outer continental shelf. Fracking, a subject of heated debate, is a method of drilling that forces water, chemicals and sand deep beneath the Earth’s surface at high pressure to break up underground rock and release oil and gas. Offshore fracking is currently used to stimulate oil production in old wells and provide well-bore stability. In California, the oil company Venoco has been using fracking technology to stimulate oil production in an old well off the coast of Santa Barbara—where the public memory of the nation’s third-largest oil spill in 1969 lingers—since early 2010. Another firm recently received permission for fracking in the Santa Barbara Channel, home to the Channel Islands Marine Reserve. So far, offshore fracking is rare, but officials expect that other firms may seek to utilize the environmentally damaging technology on offshore rigs in the future.

Holy Eco-Crisis!

Deadly Fungus Destroying Bat Colonies White-nose syndrome, a disease spread by a soil fungus, G. destructans, and thought to have been carried to North America from Europe, is devastating bat colonies in the U.S. and Canada. First identified in 2006 in a population of common little brown bats in a cave 150 miles north of New York City, the malady has claimed 98 percent of the bat population there by causing them to awaken prematurely from their normal hibernation and then die from lack of food and exhaustion. A single reproductive female little brown bat can eat her weight in insects each night. A recent Canadian study valued crops potentially lost to insects that would otherwise be devoured by bats at $53 billion a year. Without the bats to keep insect numbers down, farmers may turn to greater use of pesticides. Source: Telegraph.co.uk

Pass Go

Cooperation Rules in New Board Game Monopoly is a traditional, popular board game that provides fun for the whole family as players ruthlessly strive to outwit each other, form a monopoly and take ownership of all the real estate, houses, hotels and money. If that doesn’t seem like a pastime that teaches values of fairness and social justice, there’s a new game in town—Co-opoly. In the 21st-century game, invented by the Toolbox for Education and Social Action (ToolboxForEd.org), players develop cooperative businesses using a team effort. Sharing knowledge and creating cooperative strategies determine whether everyone wins or loses. Instead of encouraging players to grab up all the wealth and bankrupt others, it showcases the economic success that can result when people work together.

Safer Sleep

People- and Planet-Friendly Fire Retardants An ultrathin film that consists of polymers found in crustacean shells could be an environmentally friendly alternative to the flame retardants used in bedding and sofas. Mattresses and furniture cushions are typically made of highly flammable polyurethane foam; to meet fire safety guidelines, manufacturers treat the foam with fire-retardant chemicals. These are typically brominated compounds that studies by the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment, in The Netherlands, have shown can act as endocrine disruptors, leading to neurological problems or even cancer. The European Union has banned several of the flame-retardant compounds and U.S. and Canadian regulatory agencies have started to scrutinize their use. The nanocoating could be sprayed on foam, which would make it easy for mass production; several companies have expressed interest in the material. Source: Chemical & Engineering News

Great White Egret

Lyse Anthony A love of nature and concern for wildlife are the driving forces behind Lyse Anthony’s art career. Most of her works emerge from experiences during field trips, when she feels inspired to preserve and share a compelling moment. “When painting wildlife, I feel a deep sense of connection with their soul,” she explains. “My studio has often doubled as a refuge for injured or orphaned birds, baby rabbits, frogs and even bats.” Fascinated by the fluid properties of watercolors, Anthony has developed an artistic style that melds superb technical skills and rhythmic composition with a keen eye for value and color contrasts. Her goal as an artist is to increase public awareness of the natural world and its inhabitants. “So often, I feel that the lives of wild creatures are seen as being not as important as our own. Their habitats are violated and their misfortune disregarded,” she says. “The urgent need to preserve our environment… is imperative.” View the artist’s portfolio at LyseAnthony.com.

globalbriefs Bamboozled

Bamboo Fabric a Product of Greenwashing At least one dealer in sustainable products has taken a stand against bamboo fabric, which most people associate with bamboo lumber, a rapidly renewable resource that requires fewer pesticides to grow than other crops. Laura Mathews, of Eco Promotional Products, Inc., in Washington state, cites the Federal Trade Commission’s report: “The truth is, most bamboo textile products, if not all, really are rayon, which typically is made using environmentally toxic chemicals. While different plants, including bamboo, can be used as a source material to create rayon, there’s no trace of the original plant in the finished rayon product.” Mathews says that her company has discontinued selling bamboo clothing and all other items made from bamboo fabric. She notes, “It’s the responsibility of everyone to vet these and other similar terms to ensure that the eco-friendly product you’re putting your purchasing power behind is actually eco-friendly.” Source: EcoPromotionsOnline.com

Young musicians from the village of Cateura, Paraguay, a town of 2,500 families that make a living by mining the 1,500 tons of solid waste daily dumped in a local landfill, have started making musical instruments from the debris. Favio Chávez, an ecological technician and trained musician, was inspired to teach the local children to play music in an orchestra. He says, “The world sends us garbage, we send back music.” A documentary, Landfill Harmonic, is in production and a 30-member Recycled Orchestra has performed in Argentina, Brazil and Germany. The message is that like other natural resources, children living in poverty have redeeming value and should not be deemed worthless.

Table Label

Chipotle’s Identifies GMO Ingredients Although the U.S. Food and Drug Administration does not require the labeling of genetically modified organisms (GM or GMO) used as ingredients in any food, the Chipotle Mexican Grill national fast food restaurant chain has chosen to do so, on the way to eliminating them from its menu altogether. They have already switched fryers from using soybean oil, almost always made from genetically modified sources, to sunflower oil, which is not. With 1,400 locations, Chipotle reports that its labeling system reflects that it does use GMO soybean oil in some of its products and that most of the grain used to feed its animals for meat and dairy is GMO corn. The chain’s success in this effort may also prompt other fast food outlets to follow suit.

Transform Your Life with Mentors, Books, Workshops and Online Courses by Bess J.M. Hochstein

Our capacity for self-examination distinguishes us from other animals. We feel compelled to ask: “Who am I? What am I here for? How can I attain my full potential?” The quest for answers has engaged humans for millennia.

P

opular books that have helped people on this journey span centuries, from Wallace Wattles’ The Science of Getting Rich (1910), Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich (1937), Dale Carnegie’s How to Win Friends and Influence People (1937), Abraham Maslow’s Motivation and Personality (1954) and Dr. Thomas Anthony Harris’ I’m OK, You’re OK (1967) to Rhonda Byrne’s The Secret (2006). The personal growth genre is a cornerstone of the publishing industry. Companies like Hay House, founded by motivational author Louise Hay, have flourished. Hay teaches, “No matter where we live or how difficult our situation seems to be, we have the ability to overcome

and transcend our circumstances.” The success of her 1984 book, You Can Heal Your Life, a New York Times bestseller well into the 21st century, led to her publishing empire, which includes authors such as Dr. Wayne Dyer, Caroline Myss and Joan Borysenko, Ph.D. One of its recent top sellers is Pam Grout’s E-Squared: Nine Do-It-Yourself Energy Experiments that Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality. Hay House has expanded its messages of hope and healing through online courses, films, conferences, special events and other opportunities to meet leading thinkers and peers.

al interaction in community and find that inward exploration frequently translates into outward action to improve the world. Perched on the cliffs of Big Sur, in California, the Esalen Institute, established in 1962, helped birth the modern human potential movement. It exists to help individuals grow through education, experience and research, with the conviction that positive personal and social transformation go hand-in-hand. Today, Esalen offers about 600 workshops a year, serving around 12,000 participants. Popular programs range from dance and yoga to couples workshops and psychology courses. Cheryl Fraenzl, director of programs, explains the appeal: “For most of us, life can be challenging and messy. Gaining the insight, skills and tools to move through the challenging times with more ease and grace while creating more love for yourself and those around you seems like a good investment of time and energy. Being consciously kind and relationally wise ripples out and changes the world. The effort has to start with the individual, like paying it forward; imagine if we all were doing it?”  The largest holistic retreat center in North America, Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health, in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, attracts 35,000 participants to 800 programs annually. According to Denise Barack, the nonprofit’s director of program development, current workshops in high demand include qigong, Buddhist meditation, mindfulness and yoga nidra. She also notes a growing interest in diverse dimensions of yoga, dance and “authentic movement” for healing, addiction recovery, releasing trauma and energy medicine. Psychotherapist and yoga teacher Stephen Cope, founder and director of

The unexamined life is not worth living for a human being. ~ Plato the Kripalu Institute for Extraordinary Living, the Center’s yoga research department, notes that many guests first come to Kripalu “… as a result of some form of suffering. Then they engage in a period of self-exploration—perhaps learning some form of contemplative practice to help them manage themselves more effectively. Almost always there is a turn outward, back toward the world, and a longing to bring the healing power of contemplative practice into their own domain.” Once someone has experienced the benefits of contemplative practices such as yoga, meditation, breathing and other healthy lifestyle routines, notes Cope, a powerful aspiration typically arises to share these practices and perspectives. “These practices all lead to a sense of union, relatedness and sameness with others,” he says, “and this burgeoning consciousness of sameness compels us to share what we’ve learned.” In Rhinebeck, New York, the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies offers similar self-empowering and reflective opportunities. Dr. Stephan Rechtschaffen and Elizabeth Lesser founded Omega in 1977 as a “university of life.” Through working with prominent Zen masters, rabbis, Christian monks, psychologists, scientists and others, Lesser has found, “By combining a variety of religious, psychological and healing traditions, each of us has the unique ability to satisfy our spiritual hunger.” Based since 1981 in a former camp on a lake with more than 100 buildings

on 200-plus acres, Omega hosts more than 23,000 guests in up to 500 programs between mid-April and October, plus special programs in Costa Rica and New York City. Director of Rhinebeck Programs Carol Donahoe notes the rising interest in workshops on dietary cleansing, detox and juicing, such as “Reboot with Joe Cross: A Jump Start to Health and Weight Loss,” led by the filmmaker of Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead. Personal transformation and mindfulness programs led by teachers like Jon Kabat-Zinn, Saki Santorelli, Florence Meleo-Meyer, Byron Katie and Pema Chödrön are perennial favorites. “As humans, we continue to be fascinated by the big questions in life,” observes Donahoe, “like, ‘Where do we go when we die? Who are we if we are not our thoughts?’ People seem particularly drawn to hearing about it from those that have always lived their lives in a left-brain, logical way, and then come to believe the unexplainable through an extraordinary life experience, and now view the world through a completely different lens.” As examples, she cites neurosurgeon Dr. Eben Alexander, who recounts his near-death experience in his bestselling book, Proof of Heaven, and neuroanatomist Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, author of the bestselling memoir My Stroke of Insight. Taylor’s 2008 TED talk was ranked the nonprofit’s second most-watched for the past two years. Both of these cutting-edge thinkers have given presentations at Omega, which, like at Esalen and Kripalu, helps bring ideas and practices that once seemed on the fringe—from yoga and meditation to complementary medicine and sustainability—into mainstream

Particularly innovative initiatives include helping military veterans heal from post-traumatic stress disorder; the women’s leadership center; the center for sustainable living; and pioneering programs on mindfulness in the workplace, education system and at-risk urban youth communities. “We recognize that because we live in an interconnected world; the behavior of one can contribute to creating changes that benefit the whole,” says Donahoe. “Doing both the inner and outer work can awaken the best in the human spirit, and so provide hope and healing to individuals and society.” For those unable to travel great distances for a holistic immersion experience in community with like-minded seekers, Wanderlust Festivals may offer an answer.

Dinan explains that at a meditation retreat, he received a detailed vision of “a large global transformation network that would be helping to usher in a shift to the new era.” The Shift Network now offers free teleseminars and online summits on subjects ranging from meditation and parenting with presence to enlightened business practices and cultivating peace. “We started with The Sacred Awakening Series—40 days with 40 spiritual leaders—and 30,000 people signed up in 21 days,” says Dinan. The Inspiring Women Summit attracted 25,000 participants. Since 2010, more than 400,000 people from 160 countries have participated in free teleseminars; 18,000 have paid for online courses such as Barbara Marx Hubbard’s Agents of Conscious Evolution, Andrew Harvey’s Christ Path and Thomas Hüebl’s Authentic Awakening. The Shift Network has already reached profitability and donated more than $50,000 to nonprofits. Dinan’s vision includes providing education program certifications; building a multimedia platform of e-zines, mobile phone apps and web TV broadcasts; and eventually building facilities and intentional communities to model the possibilities of a more healthy, peaceful, sustainable way of life. From reading a book on meditation to attending a yoga intensive or tapping into a multifaceted community striving to change the world, we have myriad opportunities to lead an examined life. While the seeker may have a personal goal in mind, each mode of self-inquiry can expand outward toward making the world a better place. Hay encourages us all. “You’ve been criticizing yourself for years and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens.”

Seeding Growth

P

ersonal growth can be advanced by activities that improve selfknowledge and identity, develop talents and potential, build human capital and employability, enhance quality of life and contribute to the realization of dreams and aspirations. It’s worth investing in: Consider these core universal benefits.

Self-Awareness

Growing self-awareness enables an individual to live a life by design, instead of one marred by feelings of mediocrity, discontent or being a victim of circumstance. When elevated awareness becomes one’s modus operandi, it brings infinite spiritual riches to life.

Happiness

Successful growth requires taking personal responsibility for each choice we make in shaping and responding to circumstances and other people. Most of us are happier when we feel that we have some control over creating our own reality. Feeling empowered supports self-worth and increases our confidence to make even more of the changes we desire to comfort and nurture us and keep us safe.

Success

True success isn’t about the dollars and cents of financial worth—it’s realized via living a life of balance and fulfillment in our health, family life, social relationships, career and contributions to our community and world. Source: Inspired by FinerMinds.com

ow-maintenance, child- and pet-friendly colored seashells make a sustainable alternative to outdoor mulch. Choose from 22,000 Sherwin-Williams non-toxic, waterbased hues to brighten any landscape. Hide a fallow flowerbed under a waterproof tarp, cover with light-colored shells as background. Then design a Christmas tree, wreath, menorah, multihued snowman or another original design with colored shells. After the holidays, the tarp can envelop the shells and be put away for easy storage. Visit ColoredShells.com. Canadian Laura Watt, owner of the ethical seed company Cubit’s Organics, in Toronto, made a felted wool wreath for a front door from an old jacket. A worn-out blanket will also work. “It only took one long baby nap to make,” says Watt, who gave new life to the wire base from an old wreath by using bits of yarn to stitch flowers.

at Tinyurl.com/FeltWreath. A little VOC-free paint, some repurposed minidecorations and recycled toilet paper rolls could become an indoor wreath to be proud of. “I’m a television producer, blogger and mother of 2- and 4-yearold daughters, so it had to be easy and quick,” says KarriLeigh Mastrangelo, in Los Angeles. “We’ll do it again this year.” See how at Tinyurl.com/TPWreath. Spice up table décor using unexpected items. Lay a base of an organic cotton tablecloth, runner and napkins. Top with a centerpiece base comprising a pie pan, clear flower vase or Mason jar filled with bits of fresh evergreens and accented with small ornaments or beads from repurposed and recycled jewelry. Colored shells can line the bottom. Add a stable soy candle positioned in a bit of water for easy cleanup of dripped wax. To continue the theme from the front door to the table, fashion leftover


felt from the wreath into candle rings, using the same method, but on a smaller scale. Add spirals of garland made of starshaped, dried orange peels handcrafted by Colombia’s Sapia artisans. The green, yellow and orange colors, backed with a soft white, provide a citrusy fragrance that lasts months. Learn more at Tinyurl.com/CitrusGarland. Beeswax candle kits are kid-friendly and come with enough supplies to make 20 candles. Order red and green wax sheets for Christmas, blue and white for Hanukkah or purple and pink for Advent. The beeswax is rolled around the wick to make an eight-inch-tall, one-inch-diameter taper. The honeycomb texture creates a festive look. Beeswax is natural and

free from the petroleum-based chemicals commonly used in conventional candles. It burns brighter, hotter, cleaner and longer, while emitting negative ions that clean the air of odors, pollen, smoke, dust, dust mites and allergens. No time for a do-it-yourself project? Many readyto-use beeswax and floating candles in the shape of poinsettias, holly leaves and snowflakes are available at ToadilyHandmade.com. Angela Price has created handblown glass terrarium ornaments for her small-space garden design company and boutique, Eden Condensed, in greater Los Angeles, California. The ornaments range from two to four inches in diameter and include live succulents, dried moss and miniature, holiday-inspired repurposed items. Price says, “Decorating the tree or the table, they’re easy to maintain and can be enjoyed for many months beyond the holidays.” See Tinyurl. com/Decorative Terrariums for inspired ideas.

Place cards add an elegant, personal touch to any holiday table. Kids can make snowflake ornaments from recycled paper. Print a holiday greeting on one side of the snowflake and inscribe a name and personal message on the other for family gatherings. Tied with a ribbon, the snowflakes can also be hung in the window or on the tree. Preprinted snowflakes made of recycled paper with soy ink at Tinyurl.com/ PlantableSnowflakes are embedded with a variety of wildflower seeds for future planting. Mail them in lieu of traditional greeting cards or as more formal place cards for a simple way to prosper green holiday wishes. Mixing mindful shopping with creative touches embroiders a memorable day with family fun and the satisfaction that we’ve celebrated the holidays in sustainable style.

pirituality is meant to bring about harmony and peace. But the diversity of our philosophies, beliefs, concepts and views about spiritual matters often leads to confusion or even conflict. The fact is that the very act of seeking spiritual freedom causes notions of success and failure, and these notions serve only to bind us to our own self-judgments: Am I growing? Have I done anything wrong? Am I meditating enough? Truth is only complicated because we pass it through our habitual thought patterns. When we step back from ourselves, truth becomes simple. There are not many paths to freedom; there is only one. In the end, no matter what particular patterns of thought we have managed to build in our minds, freedom always means transcending these personal thought patterns. So how does one go about transcending the personal self and awakening to spiritual freedom? What is needed for this journey are succinct steps that are so universal that they can echo through the halls of any religion as well as support intellectual understanding. The following is a universal road map to Self-Realization.

Palm Beach Edition

napalmbeach.com

1

Realize that you are in there. You must first come to realize that you are in there. From deep inside, you are experiencing this world. You are experiencing your physical body, your thoughts and your emotions. You are conscious and you are experiencing what it is like to be human.

2

Understand that you are not okay in there. Look to see what’s going on inside. If you want to understand why you’ve done everything you have ever done, if you want to see what’s really going on, just observe your mind and emotions—just experience your inner state. If you objectively look, you will see that you are never completely at peace. You will see that you are not okay in there.

3

Notice that you’re always trying to be okay. At any point when you look at the state of your inner being, you will see that something is bothering you. You will then notice that this causes urges, drives and impulses to do something about it. You will find yourself constantly trying to either get something or avoid


something. All of this is done in an attempt to be okay.

4

Watch as your mind strives to figure out how everything needs to be for you to be okay. If you watch, you will see that your mind is always telling you what you should and should not do, what others should and should not do and how things should and should not be. All of this is the mind’s attempt to first create a conceptual model of what would make you okay, and then try to get the outside world to match it.

5

Realize that the process of defining how the outside needs to be is not going to make you okay. You must seriously look at this process of trying to be okay. You’ve been at it your entire life—you’ve just tried different things at different times. While it’s true that sometimes you manage to make it better for short periods of time, you know that you’ve never even come close to reaching a state of permanent peace. Watch very closely how you react to the things your mind has preferences about. You will see that if your mind gets what it wants, you feel joy; if it doesn’t get what it wants, you feel disturbance. Likewise, when your mind experiences what it doesn’t want, you feel disturbance, and when it avoids what it doesn’t want, you feel relief. You will never be okay playing this game because the world will never match the conceptual model your mind has made up. Eventually, you will come to see that struggling to be okay does not work. At some point, you will try to find a different way to be okay in there.

6

Learn to not participate in the mind’s struggle to be okay. This step is about learning to sit in as the witness, the part of you that notices the inner urges to be okay. You must become comfortable with sitting in there and not participating in the inner energies. You learn to relax in the midst of them. You come to see that there is a habitual process in which the moment you feel inner disturbance, you are drawn into doing something about it. You must learn to sit inside and not participate in this process. If you truly understand that going outside to try to be okay inside doesn’t work, then you’ll be willing to sit

inside and simply allow the disturbance to pass through. It is not difficult. If you can do this, all disturbance will cease by itself.

7

Go about your life just like everyone else, except that nothing you do is for the purpose of trying to be okay. If you aren’t so preoccupied with trying to be okay, you will be free to sit inside and quietly love, serve and honor whatever naturally unfolds in front of you. When you reach this point, you are no longer living for yourself. You are interacting with life, but not for the purpose of being okay.

8

As you sincerely let go of the inner energies you are watching, you begin to feel a deeper energy come in from behind. Up to this point, everything you were watching inside was in front of you. But now that you are no longer being drawn into those personal energies, you’ll realize that your inner universe is actually very expansive. You will begin to feel Spirit flow in from behind. It lifts you and brings you great love and joy.

9

Your inner experience becomes so beautiful that you fall in love with the energy flow, and you develop a very deep and personal relationship with it. It will become completely clear to you that there is a direct trade-off between your personal energies and the amount of Spirit that you feel. The more you get drawn into your personal energies, the less Spirit you feel; the less you participate in your personal energies, the more Spirit you feel. You now have a direct relationship with the spiritual energy, and you will find yourself constantly longing to experience it.

11

Once you get far enough back into the energy, you realize that your personal life can go on without you, leaving you free to become immersed in Spirit. This is the greatest miracle: You’ve surrendered and your entire life is about Spirit, yet people, places and things continue to interact with you. The difference is that these interactions require none of your energy. They happen naturally, by themselves, leaving you at peace and absorbed in Spirit.

12

Now you are truly okay and nothing inside or outside of you can cause disturbance—you have come to be at peace with it all. Because you are now completely okay, you don’t need anything. Things just are what they are. At this point, you know yourself as Self. The world, mind and heart cannot disturb you. You’ve transcended them all. What is more, instead of feeling drawn into Spirit, you now actually experience yourself as Spirit. You have no boundaries in time or space. You have always existed and you will always exist. You have no form, shape, gender or body. You simply are, have always been and will always be—Infinite Spirit. Michael A. Singer is the author of The New York Times bestselling book, The Untethered Soul – The Journey Beyond Yourself (UntetheredSoul.com), which is the basis for this article. He is the founder of the Temple of the Universe, a yoga and meditation center established in 1975 in Alachua, FL.

10

You begin to feel the energy pulling you up into it, and your entire path becomes letting go of yourself in order to merge. Will is no longer needed. Now your path is strictly about releasing yourself into the pull of the higher energy. You must surrender deeply enough to be able to overcome the fear of losing your connection to the personal self. You must to be willing to die to be reborn.

Superpower Kids’ Immune Systems Natural Health Experts Share How by Jenna Blumenfeld

M

any experts admit there is no definitive reason that people sniffle more during colder months. Some speculate it’s because we’re spending more time indoors and missing out on resupplying vitamin D, which makes us more susceptible to disease. Others say that when the temperature drops, the body uses more energy to stay warm instead of to fend off infection. What health practitioners do know is it’s possible to maintain immunity naturally with diet, lifestyle and a proper whole foods supplement routine. Consider these tips from three experts to stave off illness and shorten its duration. NATUROPATHIC DOCTOR Christopher Johnson, Doctor of Naturopathy Thrive Naturopathic, Arlington, Virginia Incorporate immunity-boosting foods. Ginger and garlic contain antioxidants such as vitamin C and selenium, and have antimicrobial qualities. Add minced ginger to teas or marinades; roast garlic with carrots and squash. Aim to eat one to two cloves of garlic and 250 milligrams of ginger daily. Try elderberry extract. Elderberry has strong antiviral properties. Consuming the plant’s extract may prevent virus-based illnesses and alleviate both the symptoms and duration of a cold. Adults can take one to two teaspoons twice daily for prevention; increase dosage to four times a day if feeling sick. Use less for youths, based on size. Make exercise and rest priorities. Daily physical activity rids the body of toxins, increases blood circulation and lowers stress levels. A simple 30-minute cardio routine three to four times a week strengthens immunity. Adequate rest helps the body recover and regenerate cells. Adults need a minimum of seven hours of sleep per night; children may need up to 13.

napalmbeach.com


ACUPUNCTURIST AND CHINESE HERBALIST Marco Chung-Shu Lam, Licensed Acupuncturist Mandala Integrative Medicine Clinic, Boulder, Colorado Practice deep-breathing exercises. Practicing yoga or t’ai chi several times each week can deepen the breath, allowing organs to function more efficiently and boost immunity. Concentrate on pranayama, a focused and controlled type of yogic breathing: Slowly inhale and exhale through the nostrils, expanding the belly, rather than the chest. Add herbs. Incorporate the root herb astragalus in a daily whole foods supplement routine, especially important for older adults. Used for centuries in Traditional Chinese Medicine, astragalus supports the immune system by stimulating immune cell activity with its high polysaccharide (complex carbohydrate) content. Simmer the short, flat herb in soups or add to long-cooking grains like brown rice. Eat seasonally. Our body naturally drives us to eat heartier foods like sweet potatoes, beets and winter squashes in colder months—foods that support immunity by providing both fiber and vitamins A and C. Eat warming foods like stews, beans and miso; avoid raw foods, which cool the body and stress the immune system.   DIETITIAN Barbara Bapst, Registered Dietitian Carolina Nutrition & Wellness, Charlotte, North Carolina Balance bodily pH. The typical American diet of fast food, sugary treats and refined snacks produces acid in the body, creating an environment in which bacteria thrive. Eat at least 10 servings of alkalizing foods each day to optimize the body’s immune response and overall functioning. Spinach, broccoli and cauliflower are excellent choices, along with almonds, olive oil and grapes. Drink plenty of water and green tea to keep acid in check. Up the antioxidants. Antioxidants help the body resist illness because they protect cells against harmful free radicals and oxidative stress. Berries are particularly beneficial and maintain their nutrients even when frozen; blend half a cup into a morning smoothie. As a diet supplement, consider adding 400 to 600 milligrams of curcumin—the active ingredient in turmeric, an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory spice—to meals. Focus on kids’ immunity. Although it’s tricky to get children to eat enough immune-supporting fruits and vegetables every day, encouraging them to sit down at the table for meals can help. Get kids excited about eating healthy foods by involving them in vegetable gardening, planting herbs in windowsill pots and preparing dinner. Incorporate pumpkin and carrot purées into sauces or stews to increase their nutritional power. Jenna Blumenfeld is a managing editor with New Hope Natural Media, in Boulder, CO.

lzheimer’s, the most common form of dementia and a general term for memory loss and other intellectual disabilities serious enough to interfere with daily life, affects 5.6 million Americans. According to The Lancet Neurology, a wellrespected medical journal on brain research, Alzheimer’s, which presently has no cure, is preventable. “Lifestyle choices, like aerobic exercise and eating plenty of healthy fats and reducing carbohydrates, affect overall brain health, as well as the risk of Alzheimer’s,” says Dr. David Perlmutter, a board-certified neurologist and author of the new bestselling book, Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth about Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar— Your Brain’s Silent Killers. Food is a powerful epigenetic modulator—it can enable or hamper our DNA, thus regulating the expression of many genes. Experts have only begun to understand the damaging consequences of wheat consumption. “Grain Brain is a timely wake-up call about how we are increasingly challenging human physiology by consuming what we are not genetically prepared to process, like the 133 pounds of wheat the average American eats annually,” says Perlmutter. He believes that one of the main culprits for the decline in brain health in modern times has been the introduction of wheat into the human diet. Today’s modernized and hybridized wheat crops share little genetic, structural or chemical similarity to the wild einkorn

napalmbeach.com


variety of grain our ancestors consumed in small amounts. In the West, 20 percent of calories come from wheat-based food. Perlmutter is among those that regard this as a dangerous statistic, especially since Dr. Alessio Fasano, a pediatric gastroenterologist and research scientist who leads the Center for Celiac Research & Treatment at Massachusetts General Hospital, in Boston, found that the gluten in wheat leads to the production of zonulin in the gut. Zonulin increases the permeability of the intestinal wall, allowing proteins to leak from the gut into the bloodstream, explains Perlmutter. These proteins, which would normally remain within the digestive system, then challenge parts of the immune system, the macro fascia and certain other types of white blood cells that increase production of inflammation-related chemicals. “Zonulin is the cornerstone of diseases characterized by inflammation in the brain—Alzheimer’s, autism, Parkinson’s and attention deficit disorders—as well as autoimmune diseases,” advises Perlmutter. Fasano’s research shows that such a reaction to zonulin is present in 100 percent of humans—not just in the 1.8 percent of the population that have celiac disease or 30 percent that are gluten sensitive. “A hallmark of what I term grain brain is that brain dysfunction is predicated on the inflammation from consumption of gluten, as well as the long chains of sugar molecules known as carbohydrates,” says Perlmutter. “This includes fruit, which also was consumed in limited quantities by our ancestors.” He cites a published analysis by Loren Cordain, Ph.D., author of The Paleo Diet. A diet high in carbohydrates has been directly related to atrophy, or brain shrinkage, according to a recent German study by University of Bonn researchers, published in Neurology. A blood test for hemoglobin A1C, the standard laboratory measurement to assess average blood sugar, is frequently used in studies that correlate blood sugar control to disease processes like Alzheimer’s, mild cognitive impairment and coronary artery disease. The researchers concluded that elevated hemoglobin A1C is directly associated with brain shrinkage, says Perlmutter.

“A hallmark of what I term grain brain is that brain dysfunction is predicated on the inflammation from consumption of gluten, as well as the long chains of sugar molecules known as carbohydrates.”

~ Dr. David Perlmutter He further notes, “The function of the brain, which is 60 to 70 percent fat and maintained by the fats you consume, depends on its environment.” Grain Brain recommends a diet that’s aggressively low in carbohydrates (60 grams per day) and bountiful in supportive brain fats. These include extra-virgin olive oil, sesame oil, coconut oil, ghee, almond milk, avocados, olives, nuts, nut butters, cheese and seeds such as flaxseed, sunflower, pumpkin, sesame and chia. It is also rich in above-ground vegetables such as kale, broccoli, spinach, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts and salad greens, while relatively low in below-ground

vegetables like beets, carrots and potatoes, which are higher in carbohydrates. It also calls for reduced fruit consumption. “Having two to four servings of fruit every day, based on America’s present food pyramid, is not helpful. More in line with avoiding brain drain is an apple or a handful of berries, or about 100 calories worth of any fruit. In my opinion, the pyramid needs to be stood on its head,” advises Perlmutter. “We should eat a diet similar to what our ancestors survived on for 2.6 million years and reprogram support of our genetic destiny for the better.” Dr. David Perlmutter is a board-certified neurologist, Fellow of the American College of Nutrition and author of Grain Brain.

The Miracle of Midlife Being Exactly Who We Need to Be by Marianne Williamson

H

ow would we live, were we not afraid of death? How would we live if we gave ourselves permission to give to life everything we’ve got? In The Longevity Factor, Lydia Brontë, Ph.D., observes that we’ve added 15 years to our lives… but in the middle, not at the end. No longer identifying ourselves as “over the hill” at whatever age, we are simply removing the hill. We are forging a different conversation and a new vision to take us beyond the limited thought forms that have defined the parameters of age for generations. For the first time in history, we can realistically view the first half of life as a kind of gestation period, preparing us for an even more productive second half. Midlife is like a second puberty, a point at which one persona falls away and another comes to take its place. What happens then is up to us. Some begin a long, slow cruise toward death at that point, allowing memories to become more meaningful than the present. Others, remembering that the spirit within us never ages, see the moment of midlife as a rebirth—the time to put our engines into high gear. Whomever it is we were born to be, whatever our soul was coded to accomplish, whatever lessons we are here to learn; now is the time to seriously get going. We may regret that we’re no longer young, but we’re ecstatic that we’re no longer clueless. We must be disciplined, though. We want to become precision instruments

Palm Beach Edition

now, focused on exactly what we want to do and being exactly who we need to be. This requires separating from the person we were before to whatever extent that person was not who we know in our hearts we were created to be. There’s no more time for five-year detours. No more time for relationships that don’t serve us or for staying in situations that aren’t true to who we are. No more time for pettiness, false pride or whatever other dysfunctional roadblocks obstruct our higher destiny and the joy that’s meant to be ours. Our life might not be as fabulous as it used to be in some ways, but in other ways it’s even more fabulous. The Universe is constantly and infinitely elastic, responding not to our past, but to our present state of mind. As we learn to reprogram thoughts—atoning for our mistakes of the past and embracing the endless miraculous possibilities of the present—we step into a time when we have every reason to look forward with genuine excitement to what happens next. Individually and collectively, we are now fitted to fearlessly forge new ground, wielding the power of what life has taught us so far and laying claim to the possibility of redemption, not only for ourselves, but also for the entire world. The planet needs a new story, aligned with a larger consciousness, and so do we.


What we need now are imagination and courage. Many of us feel we’ve forever carried around a secret dream, rarely validating it even to ourselves and often denying its reality. Yet it has refused to go away and is ready to be born at last. Individuals that have spent decades achieving one thing or moving in one direction often take up something else entirely that gives them far more psychic satisfaction. They see achievements that were the height of their material success as preparation for an even greater one; the means by which they learned the skills ultimately needed to make their biggest contribution to the world. Divine law guarantees that the power of “now” presents an endless fount of miraculous opportunities. In God, there are no limits to how high we can go, ever. In God, there is no time… only the call of the soul. It is not too late; we are right on time and we are better than we know. Now, having visited so many other places in our journey of life, we seek our place within the collective heartbeat of holiness. When enough of us stand in the light of our higher purpose, seeking to be ever-greater servants of love, each consciously dedicated to creating a more loving world, then a new field of collective possibility will emerge among us.

Moving Like Animals Can Wildly Improve Fitness by Debra Melani

F

itness seekers across the country are finding their wild sides by crouching like cougars, leaping like leopards and crawling like crabs. Although it might seem like they’ve let silliness encroach on their fitness goals, these adventurous types might be on the right track, realizing more of the rippled muscles and exceptional agility of our four-legged complements. “It’s getting people back into their own bodies,” says Mike Fitch, creator of Animal Flow, one of several fitness programs offered in health clubs around the country that enable participants to make the most of their inner beast. “People are tired of being injured and doing the same old workouts. They need a more well-rounded, holistic approach to their health.” Fitch, founder of Global Bodyweight Training, in Miami, Florida, incorporates fluid movement (including park-

our, break dancing and gymnastics) in his routines. Animal-related workouts are proving to be a fun form of natural bodyweight training—named a top fitness trend for 2013 by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM). Men and women are mimicking animals to attain stronger, leaner and more agile bodies that perform better in life. Whether building arm strength by swinging their lower bodies sideways, feet-to-hands, like a gorilla, or toning thigh muscles by stalking forward inches from the ground like a panther, animal workout converts are toning their bodies in challenging ways without the use of heavy weights or equipment. “The bear crawl is another good example,” advises David Nordmark, author of Animal Workouts: Animal Movement Based Bodyweight Training for Everyone.

the ground and rear end raised in the air, the bear crawl involves scrambling quickly forward and backward—a popular high school football and karate agility drill for years. He contends, “Even if you think you are in shape and do it for a minute, you’ll be amazed at how much more of a workout your arms get.” Neal Pire, a New Jersey-based strength trainer and ACSM fellow, agrees the movements are intense and strength building, but wonders if an evolved, two-legged animal is meant to mimic four-legged species. “It’s a very tough workout,” says Pire. “You’re loading muscles where typically you don’t have very much leverage, so your muscles are doing all of the work; yet some moves might be overloading to certain people’s joints.” Fitch claims the overall result is increased muscle endurance. He cites a study published in the journal Applied Physiology Nutrition and Metabolism of women that found whole-body, aerobic resistance training like what’s applied in his program supplies a cardiovascular workout similar to endurance training, but with the added benefits of increased balanced muscle strength and perceived enjoyment. “I call it body balance, working your body as a unit,” Nordmark says, citing pushups, which activate specific muscle groups, as a more traditional example. He notes, “I think it gives people a more natural and attractive look than bodybuilding, more like dancers or even martial artists or gymnasts.” Working out like animals keeps human cores activated, especially when combining the exercises together for a sustained routine. In addition to tightened abdominal muscles, it boosts calorie consumption and leads to enhanced core and overall strength. Fitch points to a relevant study of college football players that demonstrated the strength connection, published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research. Pire concurs that sustained exercises at a moderate range, as with animal workouts, is an effective calorie burner. Firming up a flabby middle also works to improve balance, as another study

Moving the body in many directions in intense, but flowing, almost dance-like workouts, naturally improves stability, agility, flexibility and balance, as exhibited in the animal kingdom. “Challenging the body as it moves in all directions uses the body the way it was intended to be used,” maintains Fitch. Nordmark also points to similarities in yoga poses resembling animal postures that have contributed to physical and spiritual health for millennia. Nordmark and Fitch believe that animal themes provide many more bodyweight movements that can keep workouts fresh and be mastered for life, keeping bodies strong and functional as people age. “If you meet an old bear in the woods, he’s not walking around with a walker,” Nordmark observes. “He’s still a formidable animal, and you don’t want to mess with him.” Plus, adds Fitch: “The workouts are great fun.” Watch animal moves in action at Tinyurl.com/AnimalFlowVideo.

I

f the only prayer you said in your whole life was, ‘Thank you,’ that would suffice,” a maxim first voiced by mystic Meister Eckhart, has held true through the centuries. Why should this simple act mean so much? Expressing gratitude works wonders. Gratitude reminds us to recognize good people in our life. They range from loved ones to those that render a kindness to a stranger. Treasuring goodness in every form brings more of it into our experience. Gratitude turns bad things into good things. Having problems at work? Be grateful to be employed and serving others. Challenges keep life interesting, enhance judgment and strengthen character. Gratitude reminds us of what’s important. Being grateful to have a healthy family and friends, a home and food on the table puts smaller worries in perspective. Gratitude reminds you to say, “Thank you.” Call, email or stop by to say thanks… it takes just a few minutes to express our reason for doing so. People like being appreciated. It creates a satisfying beam of mutual happiness that shines on.

Habit-Forming Tips

Here are some ways to overcome any initial discomfort felt in stepping forward to thank others.

Palm Beach Edition

napalmbeach.com

Create a morning gratitude session. Take a few minutes each morning to close your eyes, silence the to-dos and give thanks to whomever and whatever is cause for gratitude. Show thanks. Sometimes we think about something helpful or kind that someone did for us recently or long ago. Make a note, call them up or even better, tell them in person with sincere conviction why you continue to be grateful and appreciative. Another option is a thank-you card or email—keep it short and sweet. See the silver lining even in “negative” situations. There are always two ways to look at something. We can perceive something as stressful, harmful, sad, unfortunate and difficult, or look for the good embedded in just about everything. Problems held in a positive light from a different perspective can be opportunities to grow and to be creative in devising a solution. Learn a gratitude prayer. Many songs and prayers, religious or not, serve to remind us to be grateful. Find or write a special one and post it in a highly visible spot. Leo Babauta is the founder of the simplicity blog, ZenHabits.net, and author of bestselling e-books Focus, The Little Guide to Un-Procrastination and Zen to Done.

uster came to us for a reason,” says Amy Burkert. “My husband, Rod, and I were walking our Shar-Pei, Ty, in our Philadelphia neighborhood when a man warned us about ‘a big, black dog’ in the alley. The friendly fellow came home with us and after a fruitless search for his family, we decided to make him part of ours.” In 2009, when the couple encountered difficulty finding a vacation hotel that would accept their new 70-pound German shepherd as an overnight guest, they decided to launch GoPetFriendly.com, a website that assists in finding travel accommodations for families with dogs and other pets. Selling their house in Pennsylvania and hitting the road in a 24-foot-long RV, they’ve now traveled to 47 states to research and qualify content for the website; Rod works from “home” and Amy writes the weblog. Their travel schedule flexes, with most stops lasting one to three weeks. “It’s not the life two accountants were banking on, but we couldn’t be happier,” she says, “and we owe it all to Buster.” The site now lists more than 60,000 hotels, campgrounds, restaurants, beaches, dog parks and activities across the U.S. and Canada, plus a road trip planner. “I woke up one morning and thought, ‘I can’t find a husband, so I’ll get a dog,’” says BJ Gallagher, a sociologist and award-winning author. “I’d lived in my Los Angeles house for 16 years and knew none of the neighbors. Within six months of

Humans rescue animals, but animals show up for a reason—most humans can use some rescuing, as well. adopting Fannie from a shelter, I’d met them all. Thanks to her, I’ve become a full-fledged member of my community.” Fannie’s Chinese heritage includes chow and Pekingese breeds. Transformations can come from more unusual pets, as well. Soon after Susan M. Tellem, a registered nurse in Malibu, California, gifted her husband, Marshall, with two tortoises for his birthday, the couple discovered there was no national protection program for the reptiles. They started American Tortoise Rescue (Tortoise.com), an organization that has been rescuing, rehabilitating and providing sanctuary to more than 3,000 water turtles and land tortoises since 1990. Their education and awareness initiatives for humane treatment have gone international, as well. It was a bird that rescued April Leffingwell. She had been dealing with a severe back injury that necessitated pain medication and kept her from regular work for six months when she and her husband visited a local Los Angeles pet store, “to get out of the house.” She was touched by seeing a large Moluccan cockatoo that was afflicted with a damaged claw. Her husband recognized how she related to the bird’s condition and brought Izzi home the next day. Now with just one leg, Izzi has learned to sleep while lying down to rest his other limb. “Izzi and I found each other when we were both broken,” she says. “We’ve become each other’s source of strength. If he can live with only one leg, I can live through pain.” When members of the armed forces deploy, they often have to find alternate living arrangements for pets and may not always be successful. Kimberly Gauthier, a blogger at KeepTheTailWagging.com, and her ex-Army partner are securing funding and laying plans to foster dogs for deployed soldiers. Emailing updates and Skype visits will aim to boost the morale of both the dog and serviceman or woman. The couple lives on five acres in Marysville, Washington. An animal-enriched environment has proved to be helpful for author Kathy Rowe, a 20-year veteran retired from the military, and her husband, Scott, who also retired from Air Force service that included Special Forces duty. They have chosen to live on a 100-acre farm in Tyner, Kentucky. Kathy believes their variety of resident rescued animals, including dogs, cats, chickens, turkeys and a potbelly pig, all help Scott in dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder. Riding, working with and grooming his horse, Quint, is particularly helpful. “My husband is less frustrated, has better focus, is less jumpy and has fewer flashbacks than he used to,” relates Rowe. “Knowing that our rescue dog, Lola, is guarding the farm, he feels he can sleep better because she has his back.” Humans rescue animals, but animals show up for a reason—most humans can use some rescuing, as well.

REDUCED TO JOY By Mark Nepo

M

ark Nepo is by far one of my favorite authors. He is the author of the New York Times bestseller, The Book of Awakening, which also happens to be one of my all time favorite books. Mark’s latest offering, Reduced to Joy, is a collection of poems that speaks of allowing ourselves to be worn down by what life presents us as a means to finding out what is really true. There is an innate joy in arriving at a space of authentic vulnerability that typifies his work. He has been called “one of the finest spiritual teachers of our time” and “a consummate storyteller”. One can certainly see why.

Here are a few excerpts: For the Moment It was in Vancouver at breakfast, before my second cup of coffee. I had a moment, a long moment, before the next task showed its teeth, before the meetings began, and the clink of silverware glistened slightly, and the coffee warmed my throat, and I fell into the well of a silence that was there before I was born. For the moment, the thing that waits behind my tongue dropped way down behind my heart, like an iridescent fish hovering under all that water near the center of the Earth

54

Now the phone is ringing. The emails are flitting, and the voices in the hive of which I am a part are mounting. But the coffee is steaming and my mind for now is clear and the path between it and my heart is open and I finally have nothing to say. Where is God? It’s as if what is unbreakable – the very pulse of life – waits for everything else to be torn away, and then in the bareness that only silence and suffering and great love can expose, it dares to speak through us and to us. It seems to say, if you want to last, hold on to nothing. If you want to know love, let in everything. If you want to feel the presence of everything, stop counting the things that break along the way. For Joel at 94 They say that miners in South America strap small lamps around their chest, that this works better than the light coming from the center of your head. They say the head can be fooled, but the heart can’t turn without the body. This makes me think of you digging your way through your long life, lighting everything with your heart.

It’s a good way to live. And when we sit at the end of the day, our hearts illumine the day and we see each other in its radiance. I can tell, it reminds you of many circles you have been a part of. It’s a good way to measure time. To make our way on earth by the light coming from our heart – This is what you’ve taught us. Is it any wonder that what you touch, including us, glows. For the month of November 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.

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

W

e’ve talked about different aspects of weight loss over the years here, and today I want to simply dwell on: calories. The calorie when used in the context of food and weight loss is a term in biology, chemistry, and physics which is shorthand actually for the word “kilocalorie”, or one thousand calories. A kilocalorie is the amount of energy required to raise the temperature of one kilogram (a thousand grams) of water by one degree Celsius, from precisely 14.5° C to 15.5° C. For you precise people out there, a kilogram of water = 1 liter = 1 kg = 1.0567 quart (i.e., one liter = one quart). One kg = 2.205 lbs. Temperature equivalents are a little more complicated. To convert C° to F°: (9/5 x C°) + 32 = F°. To determine one’s proper caloric intake, one must make an estimate of one’s energy needs. Obviously, a precise estimate of one’s daily energy needs is practically impossible, because of the many factors involved. But we scientists have come up with a formula for defining energy requirements in human beings: TDR = BMR (60-75%) + EEA (15-30%) + TER (~10%) TDR = Total Daily Requirement BMR = Basal Metabolic Rate EEA = Energy Expenditure of Activity TEF = Thermal Effect of Food. Basal metabolic rate is a measure of the amount of energy expended to maintain a living state at rest and 12-18 hours after a meal. It is actually measured in terms of oxygen consumption. This number is dependent on one’s age, sex, body composition, and genetics. Energy expenditure of activity is a measure of the energy expended by one’s body during various physical activities. This number will obviously vary a lot depending on one’s body and the activities engaged in. Thermal effect of food is the number of calories produced (measured as heat) during the ingestion and metabolism of food. There are more than 190 methods for measuring energy expenditures! And there are many states of being which we have to take into consideration: such as, is the person ill, pregnant, a world-class athlete, etc. The caloric equivalent to 1 pound of body weight is approximately 3400 kcal; i.e., you have to burn up 3400 kcal to lose 1 pound (you’ll notice I didn’t say 1 pound of fat; it’s quite complex, and it is more properly stated as 1 pound of body weight). About 25% of body weight is composed of adipose tissue (fat cells) in a normal adult (and yes, women have more than men). Another important

56

Palm Beach Edition

number is the Body Mass Index, or BMI. BMI = weight (kg)/ height (meters squared). There are charts on the internet you can look up to find your BMI. Basically: underweight is BMI<19.9, normal BMI=20-24.9, overweight BMI=25-29.9, and obese BMI>30. By the way, there is no such word as cellulite, sorry. Advertisers invented the word cellulite to somehow make you think there were different types of fat in the body and that their products would eliminate it. Cellulite is fat. So losing weight is a matter of calories in versus calories out. You have to eat less and exercise more. And you have to do it right, in a careful, nutritious, balanced way. So how do you do that? There are only a zillion books, websites, and sources of information on diet and exercise. Perhaps you might start by consulting friends or family who have tried a weight loss and exercise program, and ask them what worked and what didn’t. You might consult a physician knowledgeable in diet and weight loss, especially a bariatrician, for whom this is his/her specialty. A registered dietician is also an excellent person to consult. A certified personal trainer can also be of tremendous help. There are many legitimate, certified people out there who can help. Reading food labels is important when counting calories. And remember, this article is only dwelling on calories, which are only a small part of the total picture of good nutrition, health, and exercise. For instance: a can of soda twenty years ago had only 85 kcal, whereas today it may have 250 cal. Some rough estimates for caloric requirements are: the average adult needs about 2000-2500 kcal per day. Another rough way to calculate your caloric needs is: multiply your weight in pounds by 13. There are, as we said, many more sophisticated ways to calculate caloric requirements. To lose weight, you have to burn more calories than you eat. It’s a lot easier to eat less (and more healthy) than it is to exercise more. We already said that a pound of body weight is roughly equivalent to 3400 kcal. Since a week is 7 days, and 3400 (or call it 3500, because it divides easier) divided by 7 is 500 kcal; you will need to either eat 500 kcal less or burn up 500 kcal more in exercise every day of the week to lose one pound in a week. A loss of a pound per week is a reasonable goal for most people, when done right. Below are two lists of information comparing food calories and exercise calories. Combine your diet and exercise programs in a healthy, careful, balanced, and fun way!

Conventional medicine stresses what is wrong with you. There is nothing wrong with you. You were born in perfect harmony and you’ve been offered only drugs and surgery to fix you. Natural holistic medicine stresses what is right with you and gives you tools to builld up: • Happy hormones • Vibrant energy • Natural optimal health • Positive self esteem • Peak sex Let’s get to work. Call me when you are ready to take a positive step in your life to heal yourself. Dr. Helene has practiced OB-GYN with a Holistic Medicine approach in the Northeast for over 20 years.

Natural Iodine Supplementation A Must for Most Americans

W

e all need iodine, yet most of us don’t get enough of it through our diet. A study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that iodine deficiency in the developed world has increased fourfold in the past 40 years and now affects nearly three-quarters of all adults. Numerous U.S. practicing physicians quoted widely in the media estimate that the incidence of hypothyroidism in our adult population may be between 30 and 70 percent. Thus, we can’t efficiently produce the thyroid hormones that serve as chemical messengers triggering nearly every bodily function. The presence or absence of iodine affects our every cell. Natural Awakenings Detoxifed Iodine is 100 percent natural, raw iodine in an ethyl alcohol solution. We thank all those that are benefiting from this product and enthusiastically telling us their great results.  Available only at NAWebstore.com 

deafness, attention deficient and hyperactivity disorder and impaired growth, according to studies by Boston University, China’s Jiao Tong University School of Medicine and France’s National Academy of Medicine. The answer is simple: Taking the right kind of iodine in the right dosage can rebalance thyroid function and restore health to the thyroid and the whole body.

Reasons Behind Iodine Deficiency Radiation: Almost everyone is routinely exposed to iodine-depleting radiation emitted by cell phones, Wi-Fi, microwave ovens and other electronic devices. Iodized table salt: The human body cannot utilize the iodine added to this product. Low-sodium diets: Failure to use healthy salts to fulfill sodium requirements, plus over-

My wife, who suffered from extreme fatigue and other symptoms, saw a dramatic increase in energy after just a few days of taking the natural iodine drops. Now if she misses a day, she’ll end up falling asleep in the middle of the afternoon, like she used to do before taking the iodine. It works! ~ Aaron My doctor told me that I had a hypothyroid condition, prescribed medication and was happy with the follow-up test results, yet I noticed no positive effects on my overall wellbeing. Within two weeks of using the Natural Awakenings Detoxified Iodine, I had more energy, felt more awake and enjoyed clearer thinking and greater peace of mind. People even comment that I look younger. I am a fan! ~ Larry

Be Aware of Hypothyroidism Symptoms Low thyroid function, or hypothyroidism, is the most recognized and obvious indicator of low iodine intake because the thyroid gland contains more concentrated iodine than other organs. Symptoms can range from extreme fatigue and weight gain to depression, carpal tunnel syndrome, high blood pressure, fibrocystic breasts and a variety of skin and hair problems. Hypothyroidism can further cause infertility, joint pain, heart disease and stroke. Low iodine levels also have been associated with breast and thyroid cancers. In children, insufficient iodine has been strongly linked with mental retardation,

use of zero-nutrient table salt in foods, leads to iodine depletion. Bromine: This toxic chemical overrides iodine’s abilities to nourish the thyroid, adrenal and other hormone-producing glands. A known carcinogen, it is used as an anticaking ingredient found in almost all baked goods, unless the ingredients specifically cite unbromated flour. Iodine-depleted soils: Due to poor farming techniques, iodine and other minerals in soil have declined, so most foods today are devoid of naturally occurring iodine. Proper iodine supplementation with a high-quality product like Natural Awakenings Detoxified Iodine can prevent harm by protecting the thyroid and other endocrine glands and restoring proper hormone production.

Your Thyroid Needs Protection! Natural Awakenings Detoxified Iodine Can Provide the Protection You Need

Almost everyone is routinely exposed to iodine-depleting radiation emitted by cell phones, WI-FI and microwave ovens. Proper iodine supplementation with a high-quality product like Natural Awakenings DETOXIFIED IODINE can prevent harm by protecting the thyroid and restoring proper hormone production. Iodine replacement has been reported to give relief from: • Depression • Fibromyalgia • Hyperthyroidism • Hypothyroidism

• Weight Gain • Low Energy • Radiation • Bacteria & Viruses
