newsbriefs Dr. Craig Brown Will Expose Proven Secrets to Health and Wellness at a Wholistic Health & Longevity Conference in Delray Beach

H

arvard trained Oral Implantologist and Surgeon unveils his Survival Kit for the 21st Century DELRAY BEACH, September 19, 2013 – Despite spending over $500 Billion dollars on getting well, people are actually getting sicker. That is one reason that the field of Alternative Medicine is racking up $16.5 billion in revenue, according to the McKinsey Report. Dr. Craig Brown learned this firsthand when he was diagnosed with an ulcer and spastic colon at a young age. By the time he was 32 he was struck by another devastating illness and was told to get his affairs in order. “The severity of my illness catapulted me into researching and developing a way to cure myself because mainstream medicine had let me down. It was also the reason I was on a mission of healing that I call Expansive Wholistic Health.” There are 12-Steps and 32 Protocols to his program, that has worked miracles for his father (who was told he had six months to live) and Jennifer Gammons-Mujica (who recovered from a brain aneurysm, infection and surgery ).

Get back into life Be headache free... pain free... DISCOVER

The power of neuromuscular dentistry.

As a son of a doctor, a Harvard trained Oral Implantologist and a surgeon, Dr. Brown knows a lot about healing people. For over four decades he studied the human body’s response to healing without medication or surgery – but with research based Wholistic protocols. He has also extensively studied the Oral-Nasal Systemic Connection uncovering the link to chronic illness and premature aging. He has helped people with chronic diseases such as heart disease, chronic fatigue, arthritis, gastric diseases, immune disorders and a host of other chronic and acute medical conditions. That is the reason Dr. Brown has created a state-of-the-art Wholistic Health and Longevity Conference on November 2 and 3 at the Old School Square in Delray Beach. “There’s been too much hype and marketing and not enough valuable information for people to heal themselves of chronic illnesses and other ailments.” The event – called the 21st Century Survival Series Kit - will educate attendees (and health care professionals) on How to Restore Health naturally in a world controlled by propaganda and profit. This conference is also an opportunity for your readers to get the vital medical information they need to take control of their health. Now is the time for people to find answers to what is holding them back from true health and wellness. Traditional doctors use two modalities to heal – surgery and pharmaceutical drugs.

Through Neuromuscular Dentistry Dr. Natalia Tsar can help you achieve a pain free beautiful smile.

Dr. Brown knows otherwise.

newsbriefs ANNOUNCING: A New Quarterly Magazine for parents, for blended families, for professionals working to improve child outcomes. The Toby Center for Family Transitions announces it’s first publication to address the needs of 40% of South Florida’s children today. These children reside in single parent households where so many parents are challenged by marriage dissolution, financial difficulties, child rearing and personal growth. A quarterly magazine, Contemporary Family will debut in November and serve as a forum for single parents, blended families, grandparents raising grandchildren, foster children and other non-traditional homes, a population making up more than 40% of households today. Contemporary Family offers co-parenting skills, advice and knowledge for parents and those family professionals offering care, advice and services from law, psychology, medicine, public policy, self care, and commentary on public policy and research in order to improve outcomes for children. The publication was first published in Connecticut by Dr. Mark Roseman, a child custody expert and Certified Family Life Educator. The magazine is content based and comes out of Roseman’s experience as a family mediator and child custody expert in high conflict divorce. “The approach is fundamentally holistic; we need to address the psycho, social and physical and spiritual conditions of the individual who journeys through one of the most devastating losses in their lives, divorce.” “Who better to contribute to the tools for resiliency and adapting to so many of life’s transitions than those professionals trained and experienced in all manners of support, legal process, and self care.” Contemporary Family will be initially distributed to 25,000 from the Greater Boynton Beach area down through the Greater Pompano Beach area. Targeted locations will include family attorneys, pediatric medical and dental offices, restaurants, businesses, churches and retail locations. Roseman is founding director of the Toby Center in Delray Beach. The Center is a pilot program of psychotherapy, auxiliary court services including visitation and mediation, and parenting education and workplace consulting. Roseman is a protégé of David L. Levy, Esq. of Washington, DC, whom Roseman praises as the nation’s strongest advocate and pioneer in joint custody since 1985.

Y

ou are invited to a unique and creative event on Sunday, November 10 with entrepreneur, educator and author George Ellis, PhD. In this inspiring multi-media presentation, Ellis will discuss his book, A Symphony of Silence, exploring Art, Music, Literature and Philosophy; Spirituality, Religion and Consciousness; Enlightened Science, Justice and Leadership; The Gentle Strength of Woman; African-American Vision, and Cultures of the World; and the Whisperings of Inner Beauty. For more than 25 years, Ellis worked closely with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, founder of the Transcendental Meditation® program, in globally introducing the TM® program. Ellis was one of the first to pioneer the use meditation in the field of rehabilitation and maximum security prisons. Currently, Ellis (a Boca Raton resident) is the director for the state of Florida of the Institute of Science, Technology and Public Policy, affiliated with Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa. A Symphony of Silence draws from Ellis’s personal experiences, as well as interviews with many leading figures in the world of art, science, law and justice, and much more. This will be a bilingual presentation (English and Spanish), including contributing author Dominique Ellis, former national leader of the TM program in Guatemala, and co-founder with George of several international businesses.

xperiencing the connection to our higher calling instills a sense of peace and deep satisfaction with every breath we take. As Marianne Williamson reminds us in her book, A Return to Love, we all ultimately have the same job: to minister to human hearts. There is a career choice that promises a sole-to-soul connection between the practitioner and recipient. A choice that is very appealing for those choosing to have healing techniques literally at their fingertips. A career grounded in the premise that we each have the ability to hear our own inner voice when we allow ourselves to relax and receive. And a career that offers enhanced earning potential and flexible hours, and that opens the door to a life of providing healing and wellness to others. What is this complementary health career path “to minister to human hearts?” Laura Norman Holistic Reflexology works by facilitating deep physical, mental and emotional relaxation. While in this deeply relaxed state, a person can tap into their own inner abilities to heal and manifest all that they desire. Reflexology is

the ancient holistic healing technique that involves strategic use of firm, yet gentle, pressure on specific points on the feet, hands, ears and face that correspond to organs, glands and systems within the body. Three years ago, Jane Waters chose to pursue her dream of ministering to others by enrolling in Laura Norman’s Reflexology Training Program, covering foot, hand, face and ear reflexology. Jane loves that she is now empowered to offer comfort, healing and peace to whomever she works on. Jane feels it is her calling to “turn people on to this gift”. She has one client whose headaches just melt away while she is being worked on. Her client told Jane she is calmer and continues to experience a feeling of complete well being long after each session. And Jane has discovered a new, satisfying “niche,” using her hand reflexology skills to work with artists. Laura Norman’s Method of Holistic Reflexology empowers the practitioner and their client by addressing the whole person – physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Laura’s attention to the spiritual aspects of healing is what drew Debbie Shields to enroll in Laura’s Program. Debbie describes her training as “absolutely life-transforming!” The hands-on training and the supportive, nurturing class environment she experienced helped Debbie perfect her art. The results she witnesses in her clients “are absolutely amazing!” Liz Hollander, a recent graduate, says enthusiastically, “Clients come to me stressed out, often with painful issues. After a session I hear comments like ‘I feel so totally relaxed!’, ‘It’s heavenly’, ‘I feel so light it’s like walking on clouds.’ They hug and thank me over and over – they are so grateful! Seeing happy, smiling clients looking forward to another session is very gratifying.” You can start right now to “touch somebody’s life.” Live a life both personally and professionally that speaks to your higher self and your loving, caring connection to others. Laura Norman, M.S., LMT, world-renowned Holistic Reflexologist and author of the bestselling book, Feet First: A Guide to Foot Reflexology, offers private Reflexology and Life Wellness Coaching sessions in Delray Beach and Holistic Reflexology Training Programs in Boynton Beach starting November 2nd.

newsbriefs MIXED MARTIAL ARTS With Shihan Bernd Hartmann

D

o you have an interest in improving your health in an exciting and fun way? I invite you to experience I-Shin training with Shihan Bernd Hartmann. I-Shin is excellent for gaining muscle strength and tone, helping with weight loss, fitness and overall health and well-being. There is an amazing opportunity right here in Delray Beach to train with a World Champion Martial Artist. Shihan Bernd Hartmann, who trained with the Shaolin Monks and also fought Muay Thai, Kickboxing, Full Contact karate, Boxing and Judo. He finished his competitive career having fought in 80 professional fights all over the world including 69 wins and 60 knock outs. He is a 6th degree Black Belt in full contact I-Shin, 2nd degree Black Belt in Muay Thai and Kickboxing, 1st degree black belt in Judo and an honor-

ary Sifu degree in Shaolin Kung Fu. As well as this he is a Physical Therapist (Humboldt University Germany) and the Author of Find Your Way As I-Shin. I-Shin was one of the first official styles of Mixed Martial Arts and is based on advanced techniques developed from the study of anatomy and physics. It includes techniques from all styles of martial arts including the practice of pressure points. The old Asian ways of harmony and smoothness combined with the new modern world of strength and hardness forms the basis of the I-Shin philosophy. At our I-Shin Dojo we do not compete in tournaments. We learn the ART of training for health, fitness, confidence and fun. I was able to lose the weight that seemed impossible to lose before.

I have gained self-confidence and the selfdefense training is extremely valuable. It could be lifesaving. We all love Shihan Bernd who is not only a Champion Martial artist but a great person, teacher and his heart is as big as a bear. It is so clear that this is his passion. The I-Shin classes are a maximum of 10 students so that each student receives the attention they need. There are a few spaces available so if you would like to join. Contact Shihan Bernd ( Bernie) Hartmann at 577-4037 Classes for children as well as adults of any age. He is also available for one on one private training sessions.

newsbriefs FIVE KEY STRESS MANAGEMENT TIPS

I

n our society today, stress has become chronic and it is primarily psychological, such as deadlines at work, having too many things to do (which are often self-imposed), working long hours without taking even 30 min for lunch, poor diet, and lack of exercise. While our ancestors had to fight real dangers from wild animals and tribes, and thus developed “fight or flight response” as a survival mechanism; this mechanism has become over-used and causes physical illnesses since our body is on constant alert to manage primarily psychological threats from the environment. Research shows that nearly 80-90% of illnesses are stress related. Stress is an individual experience in sense that what makes us feel anxious and upset is not the actual event, but our story, what we tell ourselves about what had just occurred. For example, let’s take a case of a driver who is often experiencing road rage. When somebody cuts him/her off, the driver would say to himself/herself: “How he dares to cut me off?” or something similar along those lines. The result is anger, anxiety, stress. On the contrary, a driver who can manage stress associated with driving, can say to himself/herself something more benign, such as “This person must be really in a hurry. “ I often use this example to educate clients that they DO have a control over their thougths and thus their emotions. Instead of so called “the stress response” which shows up physically as increase in the blood pressure, metabolic rate, and increase in blood flow to the muscles, we need to consciously nurture “the relaxation response” (as per Herbert Benson) which helps us to slow down, and thus decreases blood flow and muscles. Key points for managing stress include: 1. Start your day on a positive note; for example think about things you are grateful for, and include positive affirmations (“All is well in my world”). I recommend Louise Hay when working with my clients and it really makes a difference. 2. Eat a healthy, nutritious breakfast such as oatmeal with berries and a cup of green tea. Even better if you have time to start your day with juicing. This will help to keep your immune system healthy. Don’t forget to drink water.

3. Take regular breaks away and make sure you take at least 30 min for lunch. Taking time to rest actually enhances performance. Learn how to prioritize and utilize effective time management skills. 4. Include exercise in your daily schedule. Make it a priority. If you don’t have time to go to the gym you can be creative and either walk for 30 min and also stretch at home or buy exercise DVDs. 5. Adopt some type of meditation practice. There are several to choose from. In my professional practice I find it most beneficial to teach people about self-hypnosis and guided meditation. When you find yourself struggling with negative emotions, just taking a few moments to breathe and visit your special place (beach, garden, mountains) can make a difference. While this may seem like common things to do, I find that many of my clients don’t do what they know will help them to be happier and less anxious. Often, and this is especially true of women, there are deeply ingrained beliefs that they are being selfish if they put themselves first; that they don’t think they can take time away from their responsibilities, and that they don’t deserve to be happy, that they somehow have to earn it. If you feel you could use some help and guidance to help you find root causes of your anxiety and learn more effective ways of dealing with everyday stressors, as well as gain more effective time management skills I am just a phone call away.

Super Oxygen Therapy is a proven and well researched

method that provides energy and healing to all the cells in your body. The metabolic processes within the cells are enhanced giving the body the capacity to heal itself. Every cell in our body depends on oxygen. It allows us to generate energy necessary for survival. Our toxic environment causes a lack of optimal levels of oxygen, therefore cell dysfunction is inevitable.

Super Oxygen Therapy is the virtual key to achieve and maintain optimal health and healing for everyone. It is safe, effective, and benefits patients with all types of pathologies: • Auto Immune Disorders • Chronic fatigue - Fibromyalgia • Cancer (all stages) • Cardiovascular Disease

• Infectious DIseases • Lyme-Epstein Barr • Allergies • Arthritis (all types)

Super Oxygen Therapy has been used effectively in Europe for over 50 years where it’s considered to be “the road to longevity.” It enhances athletic performance, scholarly aptitude, and slows the aging process. Other highly effective modalities offered at the BiO2 Energy Zone are: • Intravenous delivery systems • FDA approved electromagnetic therapy to alleviate pain and stimulate the healing process • Tessla electrical muscular stimulation to activate muscle tissue and restore balance to the body

newsbriefs Doctor, Healer, Teacher, Miracle Worker: Dr. Craig Brown

I

f you mention mainstream medicine to Dr. Craig Brown, he has a lot to say. He’ll tell you that most doctors are taught in medical school to heal patients by way of two avenues—pharmaceutical drugs and surgery. He’ll also tell you not to accept the dire prospects that many traditional doctors have been doling out for years. “You are accepting insufficient advice and treatment than what we have developed. There is a better standard of health when it comes to Expansive Wholistic Health,” states the Harvard trained surgeon. Getting healthy—and staying that way—is a lifelong mission for Dr. Brown. As a teenager, he was diagnosed with an untreatable spastic colon and an ulcer. It was at this early age he discovered healing protocols that resolved these health issues. Once again, at the age of 32, his health was challenged. This time he was so sick he could not work. The diagnosis was devastating. Although traditional doctors said he should get his affairs in order, his inner gut told him otherwise. “The severity of my illness catapulted me into researching and developing another way to cure myself because mainstream medicine let me down once again. This was the reason I set out on an amazing mission of healing called Expansive Wholistic Health.” It was this miraculous healing that started Dr. Brown on an alternative route to healing for family, friends and patients. He is a walking encyclopedia of information about most diseases, and will tell you flat out that pharmaceutical drugs can be a prescription for disaster (the side effects are sometimes worse than the disease). That is the reason he studied the art of wellness as opposed to the traditional route of treating disease. The crown jewel of his research and work is a 12-step program with 32 protocols that addresses heart disease, chronic fatigue, arthritis, gastric diseases, immune disorders, and a host of other acute and chronic medical conditions. “We reverse and reduce the aging process—it’s about results. I teach people my 12-step program so they can go at their own pace. I have seen this program change peoples’ lives systemically.”

You don’t have to take Dr. Brown’s word for it; his patients’ testimonies speak for themselves. “Dr. Craig has changed my life. I am forever indebted to this man for giving me a life-long fountain of youth and energy, effervescence and amazing physical and mental stamina,” said Glynna S. from New York. Susan F. also can’t say enough good things about Dr. Brown. “For ten years I suffered with chronic IBS, reflux, recurrent rashes, joint and muscle aches, memory loss, tinnitus, chronic fatigue and insomnia. I had been to top doctors in Boston and all they wanted to do was prescribe medication. After two weeks of Dr. Brown’s program, the chronic pain in my joints and muscles started lifting and my rashes disappeared. After three months I was completely pain free. My focus went from foggy and forgetful to razor sharp and alert, from chronic fatigue to high energy. Because of him, I have my life back and I am loving it!” Dr. Brown will be holding the 2013 Expansive Wholistic Health & Longevity Conference, November 2 to 3, at the Crest Theatre, Delray Beach. He will unveil secrets he has honed for over 40 years that will expand your life physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and financially. He will also share detailed information about the connection of the mind, body and stress factors that lead to chronic and acute illnesses. “It is my mission to educate the public on how to build their immune systems using protocols for anti-aging results, disease prevention and to combat disease. Our goal is to reverse and reduce the process of aging. You aren’t going to hear me say ‘take three herbs and call me in the morning.’ My 12-step program is a lifestyle change with 32 protocols. We get to the root of the problem—I have seen miracles.” So has Jennifer G. from Las Vegas. “My life came to a screeching halt in 2012 when I suffered from a brain aneurysm requiring brain surgery. Six weeks after surgery, I had a severe infection that threatened my brain tissue and skull bones. Dr. Brown helped me make a change in my lifestyle—my stress levels, my nutrition, my activity and exercise, to achieve physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. He also gave me tools to recover from the brain aneurysm and infection. Through Expansive Wholistic Health I now lead a healthy life.” If you ask Dr. Brown about living a healthy life, he will tell you that his protocols (and 12-steps) will assist your body in returning to its original state of homeostasis. “Once your immune system is strong, your body will repair itself. Come to my conference and learn how to unleash your potential beyond your wildest dreams. Expansive Wholistic Health works naturally and wholistically to make you better physically, mentally, spiritually, and financially. Dr. Craig Brown’s Expansive Wholistic Health helps you realize a healthier way of life through wellness, detox, and alternative medicine.

newsbriefs Gentle Aids Counter Vaginal Dryness

V

aginal dryness is a problem that many perimenopausal and menopausal women encounter as mucous membranes begin to shrink and lose some of their elasticity. When cleansed with conventional alkaline shower soaps, the delicate mucous membranes of the vagina and vulva area may take up to 24 hours to regain their normal pH. Such removal of the skin’s natural acid mantle makes it vulnerable to irritation and infection. Numerous factors can cause this fragile ecosystem to swing out of balance, increasing the possibility for discomfort. While many products address vaginal dryness, they typically contain hydrocarbons such as mineral oil, petrolatum and liquid paraffin, prompting many women to avoid them. The difficulty can be particularly problematic for women undergoing radiation therapy for cancer, because petroleum-based products can build up on the skin and deflect the radiation. Lubrigyn’s line of pH-balanced cleansing, moisturizing and lubricating products, formulated with natural active ingredients and free of hydrocarbons and hormones, can help. They all contain hyaluronic acid (HA), an intensive moisturizer capable of absorbing hundreds of times its own molecular weight in water, which draws moisture and enables the skin to be hydrated and even helps to rebuild skin cells. Other basic ingredients include calendula (marigold) to soothe skin, and lubricating elastin, plus jojoba and sweet almond oils, which together add tone, elasticity and skin protection. Lubrigyn products may be used with or without water, and won’t disappear down the shower drain like some other plant-extract moisturizing products.

For more information, visit LubrigynUSA.com, email Info@AdvocateMedCo.com or call 954-900-6854 (U.S.) or 1-787-919-0898 (Puerto Rico). The American Medical Co. operates from Ft. Lauderdale, FL.

SIT AND KNOW YOURSELF

E

very problem in your life is a projection of your own inner conflict. The real solution lies in understanding yourself, your problem, and not turning away from it. You have the light within you to solve all the problems that you are presented. Sit and learn who you are. Meditate and observe your mental process. Don’t identify yourself by your thoughts. Thoughts are just illusions of the mind and behavioral patterns that we develop as a result of feeding those thoughts. (Mayas) Assert your indwelling power by sitting in stillness and hearing the voice of silence. Empower the Guru inside of you with the quietness of the mind. Meditating, detaching from thoughts, silence are the most effective ways of freeing the mind from the load of complex layers of thought. Your own observation, raw and simple, guides you to the light automatically. No thought, just the intuitive nature of knowing. That comes from meditating, sitting in stillness and getting to know yourself… For more information contact Mary Rosi (Parvati), Director of Yoga Earth, 7400 N.

pira® was initially invented by runners for runners who simply wanted more enjoyable, longer and productive runs. Out of these ideas, Spira® was born. The WaveSpring® technology offered something amazing: incredible cushioning and impact protection against the pounding, stress and fatigue associated with the sport. But the unexpected happened. The technology helped people in many other activities and situations as well. Through the remarkable support of friends, the community and others, the dream of starting Spira® became a reality. Today, Spira® has sold almost 1 million pair of shoes. Even though the technology was initially developed for running, and over 150 major races and marathons have been won by runners wearing Spira® shoes, the company receives numerous letters and emails from customers all over the world expressing how Spira® has helped them in a variety of ways. From walking to standing on the job all day, from dance fitness classes to the gym, from medical rehabilitation to relieving foot, leg and joint pain, from more enjoyable vacations to quicker recovery between activities, Spira® is making a positive impact in many people’s lives. Receiving a testimonial letter from someone whose quality of life has improved because of Spira® is extremely rewarding. And because of these inspirational letters, the Spira® shoe line has expanded from running to other areas of footwear development and will continue to do so. You can try on a pair of Spira’s at Keola Health & Well-Being Studios or ship online at www. Keolahealth.com. For more info please call 561-644-3418.

IMPROVE LIFE QUALITY WITH SOUL POWER Transform Painful Life Patterns

R

eincarnation is viewed as an Eastern philosophy, but truthfully, it is a spiritual law that governs enlightenment for all souls in the universe. Our physical life is meant to serve our spiritual life. We are here to become enlightened in our souls, then our minds and bodies; to be the living essence of divine love, compassion, peace and harmony on Mother Earth. Until we reach enlightenment, we come back in successive lifetimes to try again, and each reincarnation brings karmic patterns and blockages from previous lifetimes. These karmic lessons are meant to help us grow spiritually. The key to total healing is to realize our karmic lessons and transform them. The blessing is an improved quality of life and higher consciousness into healing. “I know the power of soul healing because I experienced its transformative abilities within my own life,” said Master Ellen Logan, Divine Channel and Worldwide Representative of Dr. Master Zhi Gang Sha. “Transformation starts at the soul level and once that occurs – natural healing of the mind, body and heart follow with continued practice. You can change relationships, intelligence, finances, health and more.” Some of the simple yet powerful practices that can start to change your life immediately are Crown Chakra Blessings, chanting exercises, and forgiveness practices. Learn these sacred teachings and experience these powerful blessings and practices with Master Ellen at her Soul Healing workshops in West Palm Beach, including Power of Soul for Healing & Transformation on Oct. 12 & Oct. 15. You can also join the very special Divine Healing Hands Certification Training Workshop on Oct. 25-27, at Wyndham Hotel in Boca Raton.

Tree Of Life Jerry LoFaro After ruling out his initial career choices of paleontologist, zoologist, baseball player and Good Humor ice cream man, Jerry LoFaro parlayed his lifetime interest in dinosaurs and other animals, fantasy, art history and literature into a successful career as an illustrator. His art—always striking and often humorous—has been featured on book covers for major publishers and in advertising and promotional campaigns for clients including Nike, Disney, National Geographic, The Discovery Channel and TIME magazine. Celestial Seasonings has commissioned LoFaro to create tea, coffee and seasonings package designs, even entrusting him to update the company’s famous icon, Sleepytime Bear. Among his many awards is the Gold Medal he was honored with from the Society of Illustrators in 2009. Recently, he was commissioned to create the official Earth Day 2013 Poster on the theme of big cat conservation. “Superficially, I’d describe my work as realism,” says LoFaro. “However, much of what I’ve done in content is conceptual, with surreal flourishes.” Prior to 2002, he worked primarily with acrylics; now, he uses Photoshop to create digital art. LoFaro also treasures the rural beauty of his New Hampshire surroundings and confides, “My life revolves around walking out to my studio in the woods, listening to great music and being creative.” View the artist’s portfolio and online store at JerryLoFaroDesigns.com.

newsbriefs Do We Need Special Training To Be Intuitive? A question I am asked almost daily is… “am I naturally intuitive, or do I need special training?” My answer to you is “we are all born intuitive, unfortunately by the time we reach 10 years old, we begin not trusting or using it.” My name is Deirdre Abrami, and I am a 6th generation psychic intuitive. You are probably thinking like most do, I am intuitive because of my family lineage. The answer I will give you is NO. I did not embrace my own intuitive abilities until I was 35 years old. Although my Psychic Medium Aunt told me since I was a child, that some day I would be just like her sharing messages from the spirit world, I ignored her. Why did I ignore her, first of all, I thought she was crazy, second I thought other people would think I was crazy, and thirdly I watched too many horror films to think I would want to talk to the spirit world. After experiencing a near death in

2003, I finally had the realization I needed to wake up my own intuition. I began knowing, seeing, feeling and sensing information from people around me that I never noticed before. When I approached these friends regarding information I was receiving about them, they confirmed the information was accurate. At first I wanted this sixth sense to go away, but I learned quickly that this was part of my path, and has since become my passion. I started asking my Psychic Aunt and Grandmother to help me further develop these new found abilities. All they could tell me was to close my eyes and concentrate. This method of learning was not working for me. I needed more. I quickly became a sponge for the metaphysical world studying and training with hundreds of teachers. I turned my intuition to where I wanted it to be…inspiring and healing.

After many requests, I began teaching intuitive classes and workshops.Over the years, it has given me such pleasure to watch students grow and expand their own unique intuitive abilities. There are three simple steps…trust, practice and action. First you have to trust the information you are receiving. Second you have to practice, practice, and practice. Thirdly, when you receive this intuitive information, you have to take action and share it with the person it is intended for, including yourself. Want to develop your own intuition? There are so many areas in the metaphysical world you could learn about: angels and the angelic realm, mediumship and the spirit world, energy healing, and much more. It would be my pleasure to assist with training and coaching you with your intuition. I have a couple of workshops I am offering this Fall.

hether in your home for yourself or with a group of friends. At our office or any venue you choose. You may just have started to learn or are trying to grow on a larger scale, we can help you grow and grow better. There is an awful lot of information online on how to grow sprouts. There are thousands of hours of YouTube videos! There are multitudes of books on the subject. One system tells you to do something very specific. Expensively specific. After a few more studies and experimentation, you find some information incorrect or completely unnecessary. It is the cost of knowledge in short. After reading, watching or listening to multiple methodologies, you could be in a real state of confusion. Well it is either that or your playing the mad scientist role. That is testing growth

methods to see what even works or works better. Hydroponics, soils and Ph testing oh my! If you are reading this early on in your journey, we would like to help you make this really simplistic. If you are ready to bypass all the confusion all the expensive gizmos and gadgets then you are in the right place. Remember the first rule and whenever something is failing. Come back to basics. 1. Keep it Simple. 2. Have some environmental conditions met for the seeds. 3. Add some water and they will grow. 4. Just add water, love and light daily. 5. Enjoy the benefits. We believe whole heartedly in the power of mentorship. Having someone who grows well hand-holding you through

everything they have learned over the course of years can be a huge value. It would be quite fulfilling to go through the trials and tribulations of learning to grow. Lets’ just say that it took you 5 years to really master the art of growing sprouts. No, It is not far fetched. Think back on those 5 wonderful years and how nice it is as if it had already passed and you were a complete success and mastered it. Through some costly trials and errors, but well worth the knowledge. Would it have been worth a day of your time to learn all of the information a reputable grower has learned over 10 or 20 years in a days time? Skip over the 5 year delay and perhaps accomplish the same in a few days or weeks time? Where will you be at the end of those 5 years of would be schooling of hard knocks? Light years ahead, thats right!

’m really a calm and mild mannered person but I have to admit I’m really starting to hate the word gluten. Even the way it sounds is irritating to me these days and much more since it appears to be on everybody’s lips. To make matters worse everywhere you turn you get slammed with gluten this and gluten free that, all designed to lull you believing that you can continue to eat your way through a carbohydrate loaded diet without repercussions. I actually much prefer the term gliadin, the scientific name for the nasty protein present in nouveau wheat, rye and barley. Why nouveau? Because there is nothing resembling the wheat of our fathers in today’s grain except the name. Haven’t you noticed that everyone seems to have a problem with gliadin these days. No matter whom you speak with they or someone they know is on a gliadin-free diet. Is this new trend a passing fad or truth? And if truth, then why has a food that has nourished and sustained us for centuries suddenly become poison to our systems? Perhaps we should answer that by looking at evolution it has taken the human race thousands of years to evolve into modern man and women, cellular changes that occurred in response to environmental and dietary changes over millennia. With the advent of scientific innovations and agricultural tinkering normal evolutionary changes in dietary staples that would take hundreds of years to develop are instead being made in a laboratory at record speeds. As a result, our digestive tract is unable to keep up with the new grains. These man-made grains have been combined in a process known as hybridization to the point that their genetic makeup no longer resembles that of the parent grains. The other problem with these genetically enhanced grains is that they now have a much larger complement of gliadin and its associated proteins. This unfortunate turn of events means that the grains you, your parents or grandparents probably ate 50 or more years ago is not what graces your table today. The attempt to feed the masses has massively created a nation of obese, diabetic, cardiac patients with bad digestive systems and autoimmune disease. So what’s the big deal? I always preach eating everything in moderation right? True, but when it comes to wheat there is no such thing as moderation. Wheat starch, aka gliadin, and its derivatives are included in so many of the commonly consumed foods today that you cannot escape it. To make matters worse, wheat starch can be found in such unlikely places as envelope glue and lipstick, which by the way is the single greatest source of lead in women. That’s not all, the derivatives of gliadin include proteins that affect the brain much the same way as heroin while others resemble our brain and glandular tissue in particular the thyroid. Excessive gliadin intake has been shown to cause inflammatory changes in the pancreas that can increase the risk of diabetes and pancreatitis as well as damage the lining of the gastrointestinal tract. There is so much more I could tell you, but I am running out of room. Suffice it to say that if your diet is high in the gliadin containing grains as well as their derivatives, you might want to think about making a change. To learn more about the health problems associated with gliadin-rich foods visit: www.drnadiamalek.com or contact Dr. Malek at 561-357-8495 Offices located at 3900 Woodlake Blvd, Suite 205, Greenacres, FL 33463.

Acupuncture’s Growing Acceptance

O

ne in 10 American adults has received acupuncture at least once and nearly half of them say they are “extremely” or “very” satisfied with their treatment, according to a survey sponsored by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. Sixty percent of survey respondents readily accepted the idea of acupuncture as a treatment option, and 20 percent have used other forms of Oriental medicine, including herbs and Chinese bodywork. Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Day is observed on Oct. 24. For more information, visit aomday.org.

MORE PLASTICS, MORE OBESE KIDS

A

causal link between the worldwide epidemic of childhood obesity and phthalates commonly used in soft plastics, packaging and many personal care products is becoming more evident. A Korean study from Sanggye Paik Hospital at the Inje University College of Medicine, in Seoul, shows that the risk of childhood obesity increases with the level of DEHP (di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate) in the bloodstream. The study indicates that phthalates may change gene expression associated with fat metabolism. DEHP in particular is a suspected endocrine disruptor, or hormonealtering agent. Children with the highest DEHP levels were nearly five times more likely of being obese than children with the lowest levels. The scientists studied 204 children ages 6 to 13, of whom 105 were obese. A chemical commonly used to soften plastics, DEHP is found in some children’s toys, as well as myriad household items. Phthalates can be found in pacifiers, plastic food packaging, medical equipment and building materials like vinyl flooring. Personal care products such as soap, shampoo and nail polish may also contain phthalates.

Dulse Seaweed a Heart Health Powerhouse

D

ulse (palmaria palmata), a protein-rich red seaweed, could become a new protein source to compete with current protein crops like soybeans, according to scientists at Ireland’s Teagasc Food Research Centre. Dulse harvested from October to January usually has the highest protein content. This functional food also contributes levels of essential amino acids such as leucine, valine and methionine, similar to those contained in legumes like peas or beans. It may even help protect against cardiovascular disease. The Agriculture and Food Development Authority reports that for the first time, researchers have identified a renin-inhibitory peptide in dulse that helps to reduce high blood pressure, like ACE-1 inhibitors commonly used in drug therapy.

Grapes Grapple with Metabolic Syndrome

I

t’s high season for grapes, and consuming any variety of this sweet fruit—red, green or black— may help protect against organ damage associated with the progression of metabolic syndrome, according to new research presented at the 2013 Experimental Biology Conference, in Boston. Natural components in grapes, known as polyphenols, are thought to be responsible for this benefit. Metabolic syndrome comprises a cluster of conditions—increased blood pressure, high blood sugar level, excess body fat around the waist and abnormal cholesterol levels—that occur together, increasing the risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Working with lab animals, researchers found that three months of a grape-enriched diet significantly reduced inflammatory markers throughout the body, most significantly in the liver and abdominal fat tissue. The diet also reduced the fat weight of the animals’ liver, kidneys and abdomen compared with those that were on a control diet. The grape intake also increased markers of antioxidant defense, particularly in the liver and kidneys. “Our study suggests that a grapeenriched diet may play a critical role in protecting against metabolic syndrome and the toll it takes on the body and its organs,” says lead investigator E. Mitchell Seymour, Ph.D., of the University of Michigan Health System. “Both inflammation and oxidative stress play a role in cardiovascular disease progression and organ dysfunction in Type 2 diabetes.”


Natural Eye Care for Aging Dogs

M

any owners of middle-aged and older dogs worry about their pets’ declining eyesight. Cloudy eyes are of particular concern, but that is not necessarily a sign that a dog is going blind, advises Shawn Messonnier, a doctor of veterinary medicine practicing in Plano, Texas. “While cataracts strike many older dogs, a more common condition is lenticular or nuclear sclerosis, a thickening of the lens of the eye,” says Messonnier. He explains that this normal change causes the eye to appear somewhat cloudy or gray, similar to a cataract. However, unlike a cataract, this type of sclerosis does not interfere with the pet’s vision. “Veterinarians can easily tell the difference between these conditions,” he says. “No treatment is necessary for lenticular sclerosis; cataracts are often treated with carnosine drops or with surgery.” For prevention, Messonnier suggests minimizing toxins that can cause inflammation throughout an animal’s body, not just the eyes. This means using blood titer testing instead of annual vaccinations, reducing the use of flea and tick chemicals, using natural pet foods and minimizing the use of conventional medications. He also recommends feeding a pet nutrients that contribute to health and reduce inflammation and cellular damage, including fish oil, probiotics and antioxidants like bilberry, which supports eye health.

Cavities are Contagious

C

an a kiss lead to a cavity? Yes, says Middleton, Wisconsin, Dentist Chris Kammer, president of The American Academy of Oral Systemic Health. He contends that cavities can be caused by bacteria that are passed from one person to another, just like a cold or the flu. “We aren’t born with tooth decay-causing bacteria,” says Kammer. “At some point, it is introduced to us from an external source, usually a family member,” through sharing food utensils, licking pacifiers, kissing and more. “Then it takes up residence in our mouths, where it is fed by sugars, which cause the bacteria to produce acid.” Cavity-causing bacteria can be transmitted by sharing food, by drinking out of the same glass and by toothbrushes that make contact with the bathroom counter. If bacteria is not removed from teeth (existing in a protective biofilm called plaque), the acid byproduct is able to directly reach and soften tooth surfaces, creating the holes called cavities. Easy solutions to the problem start with good oral hygiene for both parents and kids and proper brushing from a very young age, starting with finger brushing as soon as the first tooth erupts. Kammer advises making it fun and thus habit-forming when kids become old enough to do it themselves; one new interactive toothbrush times kids to ensure they brush the dentist-recommended two minutes.

MERCURY RAISES RISK OF DIABETES AND HEART ATTACKS

E

xposure to mercury in young adulthood can trigger serious health issues later in life, according to two recent studies. New Indiana University research confirmed a link between mercury exposure and diabetes in young adults ages 20 to 32 at the beginning of the study in 1987, and was periodically reassessed six times through 2005. Those with high mercury levels at the beginning of the study were 65 percent more likely to develop Type 2 diabetes as they aged. Also, Swedish researchers report that high mercury levels from eating contaminated fish leads to a higher risk for heart attacks in men. However, eating clean coldwater fish high in healthy omega-3 fatty acids, like salmon, countered the increased risk from the mercury exposure, according to conclusions published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

Eco-Power Tower

Meet the World’s Greenest Office Building Even on cloudy days, the photovoltaic-paneled roof of the Bullitt Center, in Seattle, Washington, generates all the electricity the six-story structure requires. Inside, commercial office space is equipped with composting toilets, rainwater showers and a glass-enclosed stairway to encourage climbing exercise over riding the elevator. The Bullitt Foundation, founded in 1952, has focused since the 1990s on helping cities function more like ecosystems. Seattle’s new building not only provides space for eco-conscious tenants, but also functions as a learning center, demonstrating how people and businesses can coexist more in harmony with nature. The Bullitt Center was constructed according to a demanding green building certification program called the Living Building Challenge, which lists zero net use of energy and water among its many requirements. The standards far surpass those of the better-known Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program. Founder Jason McLennan says the challenge is to encourage others to build more enjoyable, sustainable and affordable structures around the world. photo by Nic Lehoux

Barnyard Species are Declining, Too Zakri Abdul Hamid, Ph.D., chair of the independent Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services, states that the disappearance of wild and domesticated plant and animal species constitutes a fundamental threat to the well-being and perhaps survival of humankind. His urgent message was most recently delivered in Norway to 450 international government authorities responsible for biodiversity and economic planning. “We are hurtling towards irreversible environmental tipping points that, once passed, would reduce the ability of ecosystems to provide essential goods and services to humankind,” Zakri stated. Findings by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization show that genetic diversity, among even domestic livestock, is declining. Typically, breeds become rare because their characteristics either don’t suit contemporary demands or because differences in their qualities have not been recognized. When a breed population falls to about 1,000 animals, it is considered rare and endangered. While we know of 30,000 edible plant species, only 30 crops account for 95 percent of human food energy; 60 percent of these crops comprise varieties of rice, wheat, maize, millet and sorghum.

Pivot Point

Solar Panels Almost Breaking Even At current growth rates, solar energy could be harnessed to produce 10 percent of the world’s electricity by 2020. But the greater benefit of clean solar power relies on first realizing an efficient initial payback for all the energy needed to produce the panels. To make polysilicon, the basic building block of most solar photovoltaic (PV) panels, silica rock must be melted at 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit, using electricity from mostly coal-fired power plants. Stanford University researchers believe that a tipping point when clean electricity from installed solar panels surpasses the energy going into the industry’s continued growth will occur by 2015. As the industry has advanced, it’s required ever less energy and silicon to manufacture and install solar PV panels, along with less wasted silicon, according to Stanford University’s Global Climate & Energy Project. Advances in solar cell efficiency requires fewer panels, and new thin-film solar panels leave out silicon altogether. Source: Sustainable Business News

Course Correction

Climate Science Curriculum Update Millions of young Americans are beginning to learn about climate change and associated science in the classroom. Next Generation Science Standards (NextGenScience.org), which have been adopted by 26 states and are under consideration by 15 more, teach how and why fossil fuel emissions are a causal factor in overheating the world. The previous federal science teaching standards, published in 1996, avoided the issues of evolution and climate change. Scientists and educators jointly developed the new standards with states’ input to help students distinguish between scientific fact, religious beliefs and political opinion.

Garbage Galore

A Swirling Southern Patch of Plastic Trash The Great Pacific Garbage Patch and North Atlantic Garbage Patch have already been well documented, and the trashy family is growing. The South Pacific Gyre is an accumulation zone of plastic pollution floating off the coast of Chile. Scientists at the 5 Gyres Institute, which tracks plastic pollution in swirling subtropical gyres (vortices), discovered this latest mass of plastic by examining ocean currents. A new study published in the journal Marine Pollution Bulletin marks the first documentation of a defined oceanic garbage patch in the Southern Hemisphere, where sparse research on marine plastic pollution previously existed.

Krill Kill

Core Marine Food Source Faces Depletion Small, shrimp-like creatures that inhabit the world’s oceans, krill are one of the planet’s largest and least contaminated biomasses. The tiny crustaceans are the primary food source for a variety of fish, whales, penguins and seabird species. Krill are also used to make feed for livestock, poultry and farmed fish and in nutritional supplements—krill oil is a rich source of omega-3 essential fatty acids and less likely than fish oil to be contaminated with mercury or heavy metals. Recent studies cited by National Geographic suggest that since the 1970s, Antarctic krill stocks may have dropped by up to 80 percent. Environmental groups and scientists worry that new fishing technologies, coupled with climate warming that removes ice algae, the crustaceans’ primary food source, could deplete krill populations and potentially devastate the Antarctic’s ecosystem. Denzil Miller, Ph.D., former executive secretary of the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources, advises, “There are a whole lot of dominoes that follow afterwards that just look too horrendous to contemplate.” Concerned consumers can opt to avoid farm-raised fish; choose organic, non-grain-fed meat and poultry; and substitute algae-derived omega-3 supplements for fish or krill oil capsules.

globalbriefs Suffocating Earth Accelerating Amazon Deforestation

After more than six years of steady decline, the deforestation rate in the Brazilian Amazon, which serves as vital lungs for the planet, more than doubled in just six months this year, according to the nonprofit research institute Imazon. Observers blame the increase in part on Brazil’s weakened Forest Code, established to protect the rainforest by limiting how much land can be cleared and developed. Senior researcher Paulo Barreto explains, “Imazon uses satellite images to evaluate the deforestation monthly.” In May 2012, the Brazilian Congress changed the Legal Reserve rule that requires landowners to keep 80 percent of their property forested by eliminating mandatory fines as long as the land is reforested. But enforcement is difficult and the land is often used for growing cash crops such as soybeans or raising cattle. New guidelines also allow clear-cutting closer to riverbanks, and environmentalists are alarmed about threats to biodiversity. Additionally, 60 new dams are on the government’s agenda.

A new study lays out how New York State’s entire demand for end-use power could be provided by wind (50 percent), solar (38 percent) and geothermal (5 percent), plus wave and tidal energy sources. This ambitious goal could be achieved by 2050, when all conventional fossil fuel generation would be completely phased out. The plan also generates a large net increase in jobs. Mark Jacobson, a co-author of the study and professor of civil and environmental engineering at California’s Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment, analyzes how energy technologies impact the atmosphere and how society can transition rapidly to clean and renewable energy sources if we integrate production and energy use in a systems perspective. Robert Howarth, Ph.D., the senior co-author and a professor of ecology and environmental biology at Cornell University, in New York, has been tackling climate change and its consequences since the 1970s. He says, “Many pundits tell us that solar, wind, etc., are great conceptually, but that it will take many decades to start to make these technologies economically feasible.” However, “New York is one of the larger economies in the world, and New York City is the most energy-efficient city in the U.S.”

Tree-mendous Acts Grow Quality of Life Volunteers will emulate Johnny Appleseed to expand and restore local urban green spaces and improve their quality of life and environment as part of October’s ninth annual National NeighborWoods Month program. Last year, local organizations and governments coordinated the planting of more than 45,000 trees by as many as 23,000 volunteers in hundreds of communities nationwide. In Massachusetts, Boston Parks & Recreation Department workers joined TD Bank employees and public volunteers to revitalize the East Boston Greenway with 50 new trees. In Goleta, California, 80 new trees took root via 12 planting and care events, and more than 500 elementary school students took a cellular-level look at tree leaves during three science nights. “Their shouts upon seeing the hair-like edges of some leaves that serve to absorb water and control evaporation were terrific,” says Ken Knight, executive director of Goleta Valley Beautiful. “We impress on them that they will act as stewards—what we plant will also be their children’s trees and onward.” The Alliance for Community Trees (ACTrees), the national nonprofit program coordinator, estimates last year’s efforts will capture 23.1 million gallons of stormwater, dispose of 660 tons of air pollutants and save participating cities and towns nearly $600,000 in water management and air pollution costs each year. Other tree-mendous benefits include beautifying the landscape, improving home property values, providing a natural habitat and reducing home air conditioning costs by supplying more shade. To date, ACTrees member organizations have planted and cared for more than 15 million trees in neighborhoods nationwide, involving 5 million-plus volunteers. Executive Director Carrie Gallagher remarks, “People understand instinctively that trees are vital to creating safe and successful communities, and a livable, sustainable future.” For more information and to participate, visit NeighborWoodsMonth.org or ACTrees.org.

the dangerous current course. “These next few years are going to tell the tale about the next 10,000 years,” says well-known global environmental activist Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet. “We’re not going to stop global warming; it’s too late for that.

Sandra Postel agrees. “Water, energy and food production: These things are tightly linked, and all are affected by climate change.” From Los Lunas, New Mexico, she leads the Global Water Policy Project, a group also focused on the climate conundrum, as well as National Geographic’s Change the Course national

McKibben’s grassroots group, 350.org, opposes the planned Keystone XL pipeline that, if built, is expected to transport Canadian tar sands oil across the United States to refineries along the Gulf of Mexico. Increasing fossil fuel infrastructure, he says, is impractical, and we’d Bill McKibben be better off investing in clean and renewable energies such as wind, solar and geothermal. It’s a theme also sounded by Frances Beinecke, president of the New York City-based Natural Resources Defense Council and author of Clean Energy Common Sense. With the failure of the U.S. Congress to enact climate legislation, her group, encompassing 1.4 million online members and activists, is pressing Frances Beinecke the Obama administration to live up to its pledge to regulate the carbon dioxide emitted by power plants. The leading culprits for climate-changing gases, they contribute 40 percent of the country’s carbon emissions. “It’s time to act, and we have to act now,” Beinecke says.

On the Energy Front


“Tell politicians that you care about this. We’ve got to get countering climate change high on the priority list.” ~ Richard Somerville freshwater conservation and restoration campaign. Competition for water is increasing in several parts of the country, she says, and will only get worse as dry conditions increase demands on groundwater. Endangered sources detailed in her extensive related writings include the Ogallala Aquifer, vital to agricultural operations across Sandra Postel much of the Great Plains, and California’s Central Valley, the nation’s fruit and vegetable bowl. In the Colorado River Basin, which provides drinking water to some 30 million people, water demands already exceed the available supply—and that gap is expected to widen with changes in the region’s climate. In other regions, the problem is too much water from storms, hurricanes and flooding, a trend that Postel and other experts say will also worsen as the world continues to warm and fuel

weather extremes. Beyond the loss of lives and property damage, this “new normal” holds stark implications for communities. “We’ve built our bridges, dams and other infrastructure based on 100-year records of what’s happened in the past,” advises Postel. “In a lot of ways, how we experience climate change is going to be through changes in the water cycle. If the past isn’t a good guide to the future anymore, we’ll have to change our water management.” (See nrdc.org/water/ readiness by city and state.)

On the Ocean Front

The world’s oceans are being transformed by climate change in ways we are only beginning to understand. Since the Industrial Revolution, oceans have absorbed a significant portion of the carbon dioxide generated, experiencing a 30 percent rise in acidity; that’s expected to reach 100 to 150 percent above pre-industrial levels by the end of this century, according to the nonprofit National Academy of Science (NAS), in Washington, D.C. “Thank goodness for the oceans, but they are paying a tremendous price,” says Oceanographer Dawn Wright, Ph.D. She’s chief scientist of Esri, in Redlands, California, that analyzDawn Wright es geographic system

“Water, energy and food production: These things are tightly linked, and all are affected by climate change.” ~ Sandra Postel relationships, patterns and trends. The higher acidity levels are “taking a toll on shellfish such as oysters, clams and sea urchins, as well as coral reefs, where much aquatic life is spawned,” Wright explains. Climate change may have other devastating impacts on the ocean food chain—and eventually us—that scientists are only beginning to discern. As just one of myriad impacts: Ocean acidification threatens the country’s $3.7 billion annual wild fish and shellfish industry and the $9.6 billion slice of the global tourism business that caters to scuba divers and snorkelers, according to a recent NAS study.

The Way Forward

We can be grateful for some hopeful developments in the call to act. Wright, who has advised President Obama’s National Ocean Council, is overseeing her company’s ocean initiative, which includes building an ocean basemap of unparalleled detail. While less than 10 percent of the world’s oceans’ underwater realms are mapped

today, Esri is compiling authoritative bathymetric data to build a comprehensive map of the ocean floor. Public and private sector planners, researchers, businesses and nonprofits are already using this map and analysis tools to, among other things, conduct risk assessments and provide greater understanding of how onshore development impacts oceans’ natural systems. Municipalities are also taking action. New York City plans to restore natural buffers to future hurricanes, while Philadelphia and other cities are restoring watersheds, replanting trees in riparian areas, adding rain gardens, laying permeable pavement and revamping roofs and parking lots to reduce stormwater runoff. Investing in such “green infrastructure” is less costly than expanding “grey infrastructure” such as underground sewer systems and water purification plants. Increasingly, local authorities are relocating communities out of flood zones to allow rivers to reclaim wetlands, an effort which also creates new recreation and tourism spots. Floodplains buffer

against extreme flooding and drought, plus filter stormwater runoff, removing farm and lawn fertilizers and other chemicals that otherwise enter waterways, creating deoxygenated “dead zones” where aquatic life can’t survive, as exemplified by parts of Lake Erie, Chesapeake Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. “These solutions are unfolding here and there,” Postel notes, while also remarking that too many locales are rebuilding levees at their peril and allowing people to return to areas that flood repeatedly. “An amount of climate change is already locked in. We will have to adapt, as well as mitigate, simultaneously.” Somerville, who helped write the 2007 assessment by the Nobel Prizewinning International Panel on Climate Change, labels it “baloney” when politicians say there’s not enough time or it’s too expensive to address the problem. “It’s very doable,” he maintains. “First, inform yourself. Second, tell politicians that you care about this. Then raise hell with those who don’t agree. We’ve got to get countering climate change high on the priority list.”

McKibben recommends that the country gets serious about putting a price on carbon emissions. Meanwhile, he’s encouraged by the people-powered regional successes in blocking fracking, a controversial method of extracting natural gas, and credits grassroots groups for holding the Keystone pipeline project at bay. “We’re cutting it super-close” and need to change the trajectory of climate change, according to McKibben, who says we can still have good lives powered by wind and solar, but will have to learn to live more simply. “I don’t know where it will all end and won’t see it in my lifetime. But if we can stop the combustion of fossil fuels and endless consumption, then there’s some chance for the next generation to figure out what the landing is going to be.” Christine MacDonald is a freelance journalist in Washington, D.C., who specializes in health, science and environmental issues.

Signs Of Changes To Come Without actions to significantly curb greenhouse gas emissions, air temperatures could increase as much as 11.5 percent by 2100, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). While the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change pledged in 2009 to keep warming from increasing more than 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit, more recent reports by the World Bank and other institutions warn that the goal may be unrealistic. Continued global warming could cause widespread drought, flooding and other changes, with disastrous consequences. Here are some of the ways climate change has already impacted our lives. Temperatures: The average global temperature for 2012—about 58.3 degrees Fahrenheit—was the ninth-warmest year since record keeping began in 1880. It was also the 36th consecutive year that the global temperature surpassed the 20th-century average, according to the National Climate Data Center at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The problem comes alive in a video at Tinyurl.com/NASAEarthTemps. The EPA reports that the number of days that temperatures will exceed 90 degrees Farenheit is expected to increase throughout the U.S., especially in areas that already experience heat waves.

Drought: Drought struck two-thirds of America’s lower 48 states last year, and continued into 2013 in many parts of the country, costing billions of dollars in crop failures and damage from resulting wildfires. Extreme storms: East Coast weather has become wilder, with storms such as Hurricane Irene and Superstorm Sandy wreaking unprecedented losses in human life and property. Freshwater supplies: As melting shrinks glaciers’ historic footprints, reducing the amount of springtime snowmelt, and we continue to deplete groundwater faster than it can be replenished, conflicts between agriculture, industry and municipalities over water are expected to increase. Meanwhile, rising sea levels near some seashore cities have already led to incursions of saltwater, contaminating underground freshwater systems. Rising sea levels: Since 1870, the global sea level has risen by about eight inches, according to the EPA. By the end of this century, it estimates that New York City could see a rise of 2.3 feet and Galveston, Texas, 3.5 feet. Other studies say those estimates are conservative. Research published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences in July concluded that a rise of 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit could result in a corresponding rise in sea levels exceeding 13 feet.

Daily Choices Help Counter Climate Change by Christine MacDonald

Until recently, we’ve been asked to choose between the economy and the environment. Now we’re realizing that the two are closely linked, and that our continued prosperity depends on how well we take care of the natural systems that sustain life—clean air, water, food and an overall healthy environment.

A

lthough the worst impacts of climate change are still decades away, experts say it’s already a costly problem. In 2012, U.S. taxpayers spent nearly $100 billion—approximately $1,100 apiece—to cover crop losses, flooding, wildfires and other climate-related disasters, according to the Natural Resources Defense Council. That’s more than America spent last year on education or transportation. Given the lack of action on climate change by Congress, more Americans are looking to leverage their purchasing power to make a difference. Yet, as consumers trying to “shop their values” know, it’s often difficult to distinguish the “green” from the “greenwashed”. Natural Awakenings has rounded up some tips that can help.

Dismiss Meaningless Labels Urvashi Rangan, Ph.D., who leads the Consumer Safety and Sustainability Group for Consumer Reports and its Greener Choices and Eco-labels online initiatives, says companies take far too many liberties in product labeling. The dearth of standards and consistency across the market-

place has rendered terms like “fresh,” and “free range” meaningless. Also, there’s more wrong than right about the “natural” label put on everything from soymilk to frozen dinners, she says. While critics of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s USDA Organic label say its regulations are not tough enough, Rangan says at least we know what we’re getting. The same is not true of many claims decorating consumer goods, Rangan advises. Plus, producers get away without identifying myriad other controversial practices, she says, including genetically engineered ingredients. To help consumers protect themselves, the Consumer Union and other nonprofit public advocates have made their evaluations easily accessible via cell phones and iPads. The Webbased Good Guide’s evaluations of more than 145,000 food, toys, personal care and household products are at shoppers’ fingertips via an app that scans product barcodes on the spot.

employs chemists, toxicologists, nutritionists, sociologists and environmental lifecycle specialists to evaluate a product’s repercussions on health, environment and society. Sandra Postel, who leads the Global Water Policy Project, has teamed up with the National Geographic Society to devise a personal water footprint calculator. It helps people understand the wider environmental impacts of their lifestyle and purchasing choices, and provides options for reducing their footprints and supporting water replenishment efforts. “It takes a per capita average of 2,000 gallons of water each day to keep our U.S. lifestyle afloat,” twice the world average, calculates Postel. The typical hamburger takes 630 gallons of water to produce, for example, while a pair of jeans consumes 2,600 gallons, most of it to grow the necessary cotton. Water is just one of numerous

resources overused in the United States, according to author and journalist Danielle Nierenberg, co-founder of Food Tank. “We overbuy food. It goes bad and ends up in landfills,” where it lets off methane, a powerful greenhouse gas, as it decomposes. “We also over-order at restaurants,” observes Nierenberg, whose think tank focuses on the interrelated issues of hunger, obesity and environmental degradation. Overall, the U.S. annually accounts for 34 million tons of food waste. “Part of the problem is we’ve lost home culinary skills,” says Nierenberg, who says we need to rethink how and how much we eat. “We don’t really understand what portions are,” she adds.

“sharing economy” or “collaborative consumption”, initiatives can range from car and bike shares to neighborly lending of lawn mowers and other tools and sharing homegrown produce. One of the more innovative food-sharing options is Halfsies, in which diners at participating restaurants pay full price for a meal, but receive half of a full portion, effectively donating the cost of the other half to fight hunger. Whatever the product, experts say, the new sharing business model is part of a fundamental shift in how people think about consuming, with the potential to help us reduce our personal carbon footprint and contribute to a more sustainable future.

Energy Healing Comes of Age A Historic Milestone in Complementary Medicine by Linda Sechrist

A

s recently as 2010, it would have been unimaginable for an annual medical conference including allopathic physicians to hold a meeting themed Illuminating the Energy Spectrum. Yet it happened at the sold-out Institute of Functional Medicine 2013 annual international conference. Workshop topics ranged from bodily energy regulation to presentations by Grand Qigong Master Ou, Wen Wei, the originator of Pangu Shengong, and Medical Anthropologist and Psychologist Alberto Villoldo, Ph.D., whose Four Winds Light Body School offers a two-year program on the luminous light body, also known as a local energy field, aura, life force, qi/chi or prana. The energy medicine practiced by acupuncturists and other health practitioners that offer any one of the 60-plus hands-on and hands-off modalities described in The Encyclopedia of Energy Medicine, by Linnie Thomas, operates

on the belief that changes in the body’s life force can affect health and healing. The therapeutic use of any of them begins with an assessment of the body’s electromagnetic field. Then, a treatment specifically designed to correct energy disturbances helps recreate a healthy balance in its multilayered energy field, comprised of pathways, known as meridians, and energy centers (chakras) that correspond to related nerve centers, endocrine glands, internal organ systems and the circulatory system. The objective for energy medicine practitioners is to uncover the root causes of imbalances—often from emotional stress or physical trauma—and harmonize them at a bioenergetic level before aberrations completely solidify and manifest as illness.

Dover, New Hampshire, has conducted decades of research into the science of bioenergetics—the flow and transformation of energy between living organisms and their environment. He explores the basis of the energetic exchanges that manifest via complementary and alternative therapies in his book, Energy Medicine: The Scientific Basis. According to Oschman, there is now enough high-quality research in leading peer-reviewed biomedical journals to provide energy medicine the credence to transform from a little-known, alternative healthcare modality into a conventional form of medicine. The progression to more widespread acceptance is similar to that experienced by acupuncture and massage.

Healing; John F. Thie, founder of Touch for Health; and Donna Eden, founder of Eden Energy Medicine, have delved beyond conventional models of healing to confirm that our sensory experience of the world is as limited as our vocabulary to describe it. New language for new concepts is required, such as: nature’s drive for wholeness, resonance, a new band of frequencies, restructuring DNA, local fields and the non-local field, encoding, entrainment, strings, strands, attunement, evolutionary healing and vibration. Eden, who has had a lifelong ability to make intuitive health assessments later confirmed by medical tests, can look at an individual’s body, see and feel where the energy flow is interrupted, out of balance or not in harmony, and then work to correct the problem. “Very little of the natural world that human beings evolved in still exists. In addition, our bodies haven’t adapted to modern stressors or the electromagnetic energies associated with technologies that occupy our living and working environments,” says Eden. “Energy medicine is invaluable because anyone can learn how to understand their body as an energy system and how to use techniques to restore energies that have become weak, disturbed or unbalanced.” Her teaching tools include her classic book, Energy Medicine, and Energy Medicine University, which she founded in 2006 in Sausalito, California. In a 2009 talk at the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, Oschman predicted that energy medicine will become prominent in anti-aging medicine. “When I review the history of medicine, there are periods in which things stay pretty much the same, and then there are great breakthroughs. I think that with the advent of energy medicine, another milestone is upon us.” Learn more at issseemblog.org, the International Society for Subtle Energies and Energy Medicine website.

When a family’s interest continues sufficiently to buy a telescope, test preferred models at many potential settings before finalizing a purchase. According to the online guide, a first telescope should provide high-quality optics that limit diffraction (the spreading of light as it passes through the lens system to the eye) and a sturdy, smooth-working mount. More advanced telescopes have built-in computers and motors that can be programmed to point at specific spots in the sky. Whether early steps lead to a later career or as a heavenly hobby, helping to convert a child’s, “What’s that?” to a happy, “I know what that is,” becomes worth encouraging. As Bertoch observes, “Kids have an innate excitement about what’s out there.” Randy Kambic, in Estero, FL, is a freelance writer and editor who regularly contributes to Natural Awakenings.

Faraway Fun Facts Stars appear to twinkle from light distortions caused by temperature differences in our atmosphere. The lifespan of most stars is billions of years. Ancient peoples saw patterns among the 2,000 stars visible to the naked eye and gave them names like The Big Dipper, Cassiopeia and Scorpius. A “shooting star” is actually a meteor with a trail of gases and particles. The Moon’s surface is pitted with thousands of craters from long-ago meteor strikes. Saturn’s rings are composed mostly of billions of ice particles and rocks. Jupiter is by far the largest studied planet; after the Moon and Venus, it’s usually the brightest object in the night sky. Planets Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, Mercury and Mars, as well as Pluto, are named for Roman gods—Venus was the Roman goddess of love. Planets and the Moon don’t emit light—they reflect light from the sun. Source: Don’t Know Much About the Universe, by Kenneth C. Davis

egetarian Awareness Month provides a timely opportunity to realize that a plant-focused diet does not derive exclusively from plants. Just as a carnivore does not subsist on meat alone, the same applies to a vegetarian. What can we learn from our Paleolithic, or Stone Age, ancestors? The recent trend toward recreating a Paleo-era diet emphasizes the importance of vegetable nutrition to prehistoric communities, correcting the misperception that they were primarily meat-eaters. The original Paleo diet, before the advent of agriculture, reflected the hunting and gathering of lean meats, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds, and was absent of grains, dairy, starchy foods, sugar and salt. Today’s updated version might comprise foods naturally available and/or abundant before the cultivation of food in gardens, crops and livestock. Loren Cordain, Ph.D., author of The Paleo Diet and Nutritionist Nora Gedgaudas, author of Primal Body, Primal Mind, each contest the premise perpetuated by many in the weight-loss industry that fat, especially naturally

saturated fat, is unhealthy. Those same proponents that maintain low-fat/non-fat food is a panacea for modern illnesses also purport that cholesterol is the chief cause of heart ailments. Gedgaudas writes that the diets of hunter-gatherers inhabiting varied landscapes, from the Inuit of the north to tropical forest hominids, included large amounts of fat and cholesterol, which is essential to maintaining cell membranes and regulating hormones. She points out that obtaining cholesterol from food is necessary to augment the liver’s function of creating cholesterol internally. Cordain agrees that even saturated fats in meats can be beneficial, providing the animals are grass-fed, lean and live in clean surroundings. He emphasizes, however, that when our prehistoric ancestors ate fat, they did not also eat grain carbohydrates, sugar and salt, and contends that it is these components, not meat, that can be detrimental to the body. Doctor of Naturopathy Maureen Horne-Paul adds that organic, lean and game meats are exempt from the acidity inherent in corn-based animal feed. Plus,


“When an animal is insensitively confined and killed, stress hormones are released that result in acidity. So, we are changing our pH from a healthy alkaline state to a more acidic condition when we consume meat from conventionally raised animals.” Scientific studies published in the Journal of Gluten Sensitivity, Medical Hypotheses and by the Mercola group attest to key problems related to human consumption of grains. Anti-nutrients such as phytic acid in grains lead to the poor absorption of minerals and related deficiencies. Improper absorption of dietary protein caused in part by enzyme inhibitors in grains also tends to damage the pancreas. Individual sensitivities to proteins in specific grains can further interfere with functioning of the neuroendocrine system and subsequent emotional difficulties like addiction and depression may arise. All of these difficulties have been exacerbated by irresponsible prenatal diets that have made younger generations extrasensitive to the challenges posed by grains to the human system. While Cordain doesn’t recommend dairy, Gedgaudas suggests organic or raw milk products, provided they retain their full fat content and come from grass-fed cows. She reasons that the presence of the anticarcinogenic fatty acid conjugated linolenic acid (CLA) and the Wulzen factor anti-stiffness agent in the fat benefit joint lubrication. Experts suggest that the dietary formula established by our prehistoric ancestors can be the foundation for a modern-day, healthy, non-confining, creative eating experience. We can exchange grains for quinoa, amaranth and buckwheat (not technically grains at all), and include tubers and legumes, due to their folate and protein content. Blue and sweet potatoes also contain high levels of anthocyanins and potassium. Nearly every category of food, in the proper amounts, can be part of such a balanced diet. When we explore what makes sense and eat clean and natural foods, we have a good chance of finding our body’s own sweet spot.

Paleo Menu Recipes by Tania Melkonian

Kale Wraps 1 head kale (suggest cavolo nero or dino kale) 1 bell pepper, sliced into julienned strips 1 avocado, julienned 3 oz grass-fed sirloin, grilled to medium and julienned Chili flakes and cumin to taste Wash and dry kale. Hold the blade of a long chef’s knife along the rib of the kale leaf and pull the leaf away from the rib. Repeat on the other side of the leaf to produce two long flat wraps. Set aside the ribs for stock. Bring a pot filled with 2 cups of water to a rolling boil. Lower the heat to simmer and set a metal colander inside as a steamer basket so it sits on top of the water, not immersed. Line the colander/basket with the kale “wrap” leaves. Cover and steam for 3 minutes until the leaves are just wilted. Remove basket from heat and lay out leaves on a clean work surface, lined up vertically. Stack 1 slice meat, 1 slice avocado and 2 slices pepper horizontally near the edge of a leaf. Add cumin and chili flakes and roll leaf away from the cook into a wrap. Repeat with all leaves.

Curried Carrot Soup 2 Tbsp ground turmeric 1 tsp ground cumin 1 cup diced onions 3 Tbsp curry paste 2 cups coconut milk 2 cups vegetable broth 1 Tbsp coconut oil

One touch of nature makes the whole world kin. ~William Shakespeare

F

or 738 days, Julia Butterfly Hill lived in the canopy of an ancient redwood tree called Luna to increase awareness of threats to our ancient forests. Her courageous act of civil disobedience gained international attention for California’s redwoods, together with related ecological and social justice issues. When she claimed victory for Luna on December 18, 1999, she was recognized worldwide as both a heroine and powerful voice for the environment. Today, Butterfly Hill’s commitment to such causes continues to inspire people worldwide. She has helped found and launch a host of nonprofit organizations and currently serves as ambassador for the Pollination Project, which awards $1,000 a day to individuals making a positive difference. The impassioned activist is the inspiration for the What’s Your Tree initiative and also leads workshops at eco-villages such as Findhorn, in Scotland, and Damanhur, in Italy. She lives in Belize, where she describes her life as, “Before tree, during tree and after tree.”

What prompted your life shift from being the daughter of a traveling preacher to an environmental activist? Before Tree, when I was 22, I was rear-ended by a drunk driver and spent 10 months recovering. As I got better physically, I realized that my whole life

48

Palm Beach Edition

napalmbeach.com

had been out of balance. I had been working nonstop since graduating from high school—obsessed by my career, worldly success and material things. This pivotal experience woke me to the importance of the moment and doing whatever I can to make a positive impact on the future.

How did you come to climb up a 1,000-plus-year-old redwood tree and stay there for two years? After I recovered from the accident, I went on a road trip to California. There, I volunteered at a reggae festival. That year, the event was dedicated to the protection of ancient forests. I listened and learned from the speakers and activists passionate about educating people on the destructive logging practices of the Maxxam-controlled Pacific Lumber Company. Returning to my place in Arkansas, I sold everything I owned and returned to California to see how I could help. Earth First! was doing tree-sits to call attention to the urgent need to protect ancient trees, and they needed someone to stay in a redwood tree so the loggers couldn’t cut it down; because nobody else volunteered, they had to pick me. On December 10, 1997, I put on the harness and ascended Luna, 180 feet up. What I thought would be three or


four weeks in the tree turned into two years and eight days. I returned to the ground only after the company agreed to protect Luna and the surrounding grove.

What are some of the legacies of your incredible feat? The Luna experience brought international attention to the plight of the last dwindling stands of ancient redwoods. After Tree, I was asked to speak about the issue all over the world. My bestselling book, The Legacy of Luna, has been translated into 11 languages. A follow-up environmental handbook is titled One Makes the Difference. It all inspires concerned citizens to take action in their own communities.

Now, as a yoga enthusiast, vegan, peacemaker and anti-disposable activist, how do you stay true to yourself and model the changes you champion? I am committed to living with as much integrity, joy and love as I can. If we want to see something in the world, then we have to live it. Like I learn in yoga, I aim to stretch into my life and breathe and see what opens up, trusting that clarity and growth will emerge in the process. On a personal ecology level, I love swimming in the sea and the sound of the waves rolling over the reef. I love being at home, mixing fresh masa to make tamales and listening to the birds singing as they sway from the palm branches and bougainvillea. These are the moments that make my soul sing.

How has believing in one person’s power to change the world led you to ask, “What’s Your Tree?” Service is core to my being. It gives purpose and joy to my life. The What’s Your Tree project helps people connect with a place of deep purpose that helps guide their lives, choices and actions. Learn more at WhatsYourTree.org and JuliaButterfly.com.

TREKKING AS PILGRIMAGE A Literal Path to Personal Growth

by Sarah Todd

F

or more than a millennium, seekers have made spiritual pilgrimages on the Way of St. James, beginning at their chosen point in Europe, winding westward and ending in the Spanish city of Santiago de Compostela. Today, as portrayed in the 2010 movie, The Way, the core route continues to attract both secular and devout trekkers. It’s fair to say that every pilgrim derives something from the journey, although it’s not always what they expect. Alyssa Machle, a landscape architect in San Francisco, imagined that walking The Way would be a quietly contemplative and solitary experience. Instead, she spent weeks bonding with fellow trekkers: an Ohio schoolteacher trying to decide whether to become a Catholic nun, and a German woman in her 30s unsettled by falling in love with

50

her life partner’s best friend, a war veteran in his 70s. “Inevitably, each person had some internal battle that he or she hoped to resolve,” Machle found. “My own ideological shift was about setting aside preconceived ideas about how I would experience the path, and focusing my energy on the community that I suddenly was part of.” The diverse goals of the people Machle met on The Way speaks to the power of adventurous treks. From the Bible story of Moses and the Israelites crossing the desert for 40 years to young Fellowship of the Ring members hiking across Middle Earth, we like the idea of walking long distances as a way to get in touch with ourselves—and often with something larger. In America, there are as many trails to hike as there are reasons to do it.

Palm Beach Edition

napalmbeach.com

For Cheryl Strayed, author of the 2012 bestselling memoir, Wild, hiking the Pacific Crest Trail at age 26 allowed her innate courage to blossom. A rank novice, she took to the trails solo, grieving the early death of her mother, and discovered a new kind of self-reliance. “Every time I heard a sound of unknown origin or felt something horrible cohering in my imagination, I pushed it away,” Strayed relates. “I simply did not let myself become afraid. Fear begets fear. Power begets power. I willed myself to beget power. It wasn’t long before I actually wasn’t afraid.” Other people on such journeys are inspired by their love for the environment, like Zen Buddhist priest and retired psychotherapist Shodo Spring, leader of this year’s Compassionate Earth Walk, a July-throughOctober protest of our nation’s dependence on fossil fuels. It has engaged a “moving community” of shared prayers, meditation and yoga along the path of the pending Keystone XL pipeline from Hardisty, Alberta, Canada, to Steele City, Nebraska. Spring emphasizes that the walk is intended to connect participants to the land and the people that live on it. “We’re going to small towns,” she says, “where many residents make their livelihoods from oil. There’s a deep division between such people and our group. But when we listen to each other, that division gets healed.” Activist David Rogner says that longdistance walks don’t just raise awareness of political and social issues—they also give people hope. He spent 25 months walking across the United States in the first coastto-coast roadside litter program, Pick Up America. “As we walked and picked up trash, we inspired people to believe there could be change,” he says. His trek gave him hope for his own future, too. He now believes, “If you commit your life to the healing and restoration of community and yourself, you are going to be wholly provided for.” Whatever the purpose, there are many scenic long-distance walking trails to choose from. The Pacific Crest Trail, from the U.S.-Mexico border in Southern California to the uppermost reaches of Washington State, offers stunning views of the Sierra Nevada and Cascade mountain ranges. The Appalachian Trail, which


winds 2,200 miles between Georgia and Maine, provides 250 shelters and campsites. In Wisconsin, the 1,000-mile Ice Age Trail offers awe-inspiring views of glacial landscapes. Starting in North Carolina, the Mountains-to-Sea trail extends from the Great Smoky Mountains to the crystal-blue waters of the Outer Banks. In Missouri, the Ozark Trail sweeps through mountains, lush valleys and tumbling waterfalls. Plus, overseas trails await, as well. Sarah Todd is a writer and editor in Brooklyn, NY.

TIPS FOR A LONG TREK by Sarah Todd Pack light. In long-distance hiking, every ounce counts. Try to make sure everything in the backpack has at least two uses: socks that double as mittens or a fleece that transforms into a pillow. Get in shape. Walk two hours a day in preceding months to help train for lengthy days on foot. Do a few test walks loaded with gear to see what it’s like to carry that amount of weight before hitting the trail.

ANXIETY? Panic Attacks? Finally, you can change that.

Prepare for foot care. Expert trekkers smear jelly-like products like Waxelene on their feet before putting on their socks to help prevent blisters. It also soothes chafing and offers foot relief at the end of a long day’s hike.

Our cutting-edge system helps people regain control of their lives. Powerful, effective, and research-based.

Plan meals beforehand. Measure out all the ingredients for a healthy menu plan and put them in lightweight bags to allow the exact right amount of food needed—no more, no less—for the long haul between provisioning stations (local accessible towns and holding spots for pre-shipped boxes).

All the Time in the World Transforming Anxiety into Artistry by Marney K. Makridakis

A

sk American adults if they’re anxious about time and they’ll likely say yes. Our society even deems it expected, acceptable and normal to experience such stress, but is it necessary? It’s helpful to explore what is at the root of our problems with time and why we believe we benefit from worrying and complaining about it. Both are good first steps to releasing ourselves from the drama of getting caught up in and blaming time as a convenient catchall. Which of the following rationales apply to us personally? “If I can complain about being busy, I don’t have to examine other areas in my life.” “My schedule is wrapped up with my self-esteem; being ‘too busy’ means that I’m successful.” “Worrying about time gives me something to talk about.” “I don’t plan things I might enjoy because it can be too demanding or even scary—it just feels easier and safer to be bored.” “Worrying about time is a convenient excuse for not following my dreams.” Once we identify the perceived payoffs from worrying about time, we can see them for what they are: illusions that keep us from living our true potential. Awareness allows us to make a different choice and to partner with time, instead of working

against it. Einstein proved that time is subjective, illustrated every time we compare an hour in a dentist’s chair to an hour in the company of a loved one. Time behaves and feels differently based on many variables, like emotion, engagement, flow, desire, interest, pain and pleasure. Our perspective counts. With capricious factors dancing around in our every moment, we can see why time isn’t constant. Happily, we can use the relative nature of time to our advantage and choose what our relationship with it will be. Consider that with each instance we choose how we talk about, measure and experience time, we are actually creating a new paradigm of time for ourselves. We can relinquish general views and limitations of time that hinder us and emerge into the possibilities of time as anything but a defined line. It can be a vibrant, completely moldable, layered, multifaceted work of art that we may adapt as we wish, to custom design each and every day. Marney K.

Ann Brooks, founder of Phoenix Landing, in Asheville, North Carolina, remarks about the deficiencies of conventional packaged birdseed diets. “Most lack essential ingredients like vitamin A, calcium and protein, and are also high in fat,” she says. As an alternative, in recent decades manufacturers have turned to formulated pellet diets. As with any pet food, bird owners are advised to check labels for the nutrients that are best for their type of parrot and take care to avoid genetically modified ingredients. Fresh foods, always the more nutritious alternative, require more time and some ingenuity. Avian Veterinary Technician Shari Mirojnick, with the Backos Bird Clinic, in Deerfield Beach, Florida, explains that North Americans, even in the subtropics, don’t have access to all the foods that parrots eat in the wild. “We have to make up for what they’re missing,” advises Mirojnick. “Parrots that live in dense rain forest will often dine on certain tree fruits, which differ from supermarket fruits. Plus, human cultivation has sacrificed much of the nutrient content found in the original fruit in exchange for sweetness.” We need to reconcile the loss in other ways, such as with vegetables. Mirojnick notes, “Many of the best vegetables for parrots are high in key essential nutrients like vitamin A and calcium, which these birds do not efficiently metabolize in captivity.” She recommends nutrient-dense dark leafy greens, carrots, sweet potatoes and broccoli. But avoid avocado, which is poisonous to birds, and nightshade produce such as eggplant and mushrooms. When in doubt about a food, check it out through a reputable source such as Phoenix

napalmbeach.com


Landing.org/parrotcare.html or an avian veterinarian. Blueberries, cranberries and goji contain helpful antioxidants, phytochemicals, vitamins C and K, and fiber, and have a low sugar content compared with their nutritional value. Other fruits like papaya and cantaloupe are high in vitamin A. Providing good fresh food isn’t necessarily time-consuming nor difficult. Parrot Nation proprietor Patricia Sund, of Hollywood, Florida, leads the “chop” revolution, teaching this efficient approach for delivering vegetables, leafy greens, grains and healthy seeds to pet birds—whose care is generally time-intensive throughout their long lifespans—to bird clubs and rescue groups around the country. By gathering ingredients and preparing a large batch, an owner can freeze multiple healthy servings in containers to thaw and feed to parrots over an extended period. Recipes vary, based on the fresh produce available according to growing seasons, regional crops and individual bird tastes.

Food as Enrichment

Because 50 to 70 percent of a wild parrot’s time is spent foraging, according to Brooks, companion parrots need that kind of activity for mental and physical stimulation. “Foraging keeps them busy, is fun and gives them a job,” remarks Lisa Bono, a certified avian trainer and educator and owner of The Platinum Parrot, in Barnegat, New Jersey. Besides finding food, foraging also keeps a bird’s beak in shape and its mind occupied in finding things to play with, she says. “A busy beak means a busy mind, and less time to develop undesirable behaviors like screaming or feather-destructive habits.” Bono says the popular African grey parrot likes playing with durable and versatile beak and claw toys, plus shredding and tearing bird-safe materials like untanned leather, small plain cardboard boxes, and uncolored and unwaxed paper cups—simple items that can double as destructible “dishes” for parrot foods. Robin Shewokis, of The Leather Elves, in Weymouth, Massachusetts, and a board member of the International Association of Avian Trainers and Educators, adds, “Any toy can be turned into a foraging device by merely placing some food in or on it; with fresh foods, be careful to avoid spoilage. Be creative: Switch the placement of food and water bowls for a simple parrot puzzle. Put a paper towel over the food dish on another day. Have fun with it. You can put a lot of love and thought into a food’s presentation.” Sandy Lender is the publisher of In Your Flock, a companion parrot magazine. She lives in Southwest Florida with seven parrots that she feeds varieties of homemade chop. Reach her at Publisher@InYourFlock.com.

Homemade Chop Beats Birdseed by Patricia Sund Ingredients Veggies such as poblano peppers, colorful bell peppers, carrots (with greens), sweet potatoes, celery root, yellow squash, rapini, rutabaga Leafy greens such as parsley, watercress, Swiss red chard, kale greens, red cabbage Healthy seeds and grains such as raw wheat germ, organic rolled oats, dulse flakes, organic unsweetened shredded coconut plus chia, flax, hulled hemp and sesame seeds Directions Wash and dry all produce thoroughly. The drier the chop mix remains, the easier it will be to freeze and thaw for extended use. Modify chop to cater to picky eaters. When using a food processor to chop the vegetables and greens, set it on “pulse” and guard against liquefying the ingredients—especially peppers. Thoroughly mix all ingredients, feed a few tablespoons to each parrot and then freeze the rest in serving-size containers for the next month or two as daily meal supplements.

SPIRITUAL DIVORCE

Divorce as a Catalyst for an Extraordinary Life By Debbie Ford

E

ven though this book has been around for several years I felt inspired to bring it out in this review. No doubt there will be readers of Natural Awakenings who need to near this message again. It is, after all, a powerful message: take something as heart-wrenching as divorce and use that experience for profound growth. One of the main gifts of this work is that it helps change your relationship to the pain of loss. In fact this book can be a beacon of light when dealing with any great loss, not just a marriage. It is full of tremendously helpful and perspective-changing insights as well as healing action steps and meditations to support you on your journey towards a peaceful heart. When a marriage, or any significant relationship, ends it can deeply challenge our self-concept, our self-worth, our sense of wanting things to be a certain way, and our sense of connectedness to others, to name just a few. Yet when we begin to take a honest look at what is really true, versus what we want to be true, we begin to see things from a higher perspective. And

this, thankfully, has the power to change everything. Here is a partial excerpt from the section: The Seven Spiritual Laws of Divorce It is important to know that the breakdown of your relationship is for a greater purpose. Understanding some of the basic spiritual laws of the Universe will help you to discover that there is a reason you’re going through this pain. These laws will guide you through the process of healing and bring you back to a place deep inside that is filled with wisdom, knowledge, and compassion for the human experience. (1) The Law of Acceptance: The first and possibly the most important spiritual law is that everything is as it should be. Nothing occurs by accident, and there are no coincidences. We are always evolving, whether we are aware of it or not. And our lives are divinely designed for each one of us to get exactly what we need to support our own unique evolutionary process.

(2) The Law of Surrender: When we stop resisting and surrender to the situation exactly as it is, things begin to change. Resistance is the number-one culprit in denying us our right to heal. We resist out of fear that if we let go, if we surrender, our lives will go out of control or we will be faced with circumstances that we can’t handle. When we are willing to look at our situation and admit that we don’t know how to fix it, we are ready to get the help we need. (3) The Law of Divine Guidance: God will do for you what you cannot do for yourself. When you get out of your own way and let go of your defenses, you become humble. Humility is the doorway through which the Divine can walk into your life. Without humility, we believe we can do it ourselves. Without humility, our false sense of pride, our ego, prohibits us from seeing the entire situation with clear eyes. Our egos remain in charge until we step outside our righteous belief that we are independent and separate beings. As long as this myth is intact, we keep the door closed to our higher wisdom. For the month of October 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. David A. Cronin is a spiritual coach, writer, lecturer and owner of Changing Times Books and Gifts, located in the Village Commons Shopping Plaza, 771 Village Blvd, Suite 202, West Palm Beach, FL 33409.

GINGER

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

G

inger (Zingiber officinale) is certainly one of my favorite herbs, with all of its many uses as a spice and a medicine. Ginger is a perennial which grows about 2-4 feet high, native to southern Asia, with Jamaica now being the world’s major producer, exporting more than two million pounds annually. The knotted and branched rhizome, called the root, is the part of the plant used to make spices and medicine. A number of biochemical compounds have been extracted by steam distillation from ginger, including: volatile oils, gingerols, shogaols, niacin, and vitamin A. Ginger is commonly used as a spice in cooking, drinks (ginger ale, tea), candies (I keep ginger candies at home and in my office always to relieve stomach upset), perfumes, and soaps. Ancient Chinese records from the 4th century BC describe ginger’s use for: • Nausea • Diarrhea • Joint pains • Toothaches.

Ginger has numerous medicinal uses and research to back them up.

• Antiemetic: relieves nausea and vomiting, stimulates the flow of saliva, bile, and gastric secretions; suppresses gastric contractions; increases the tone of intestinal muscles, and increases peristalsis. Excellent for motion sickness and pregnancy-induced nausea. • Anti-Inflammatory: it inhibits cyclooxygenase and 5-lipoxygenase (which is what prescription anti inflammatories do). Ginger is used for osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and myalgias (muscle pains). • Anti-Migraine: used for migraine headaches because of its anti-inflammatory properties. • Anti-Lipid: reduces lipids (fats and cholesterol) and a therosclerosis. • Antimicrobial: kills or inhibits bacteria, viruses, and parasites. • Antioxidant: reduces oxidation. • Antithrombotic: inhibits platelet aggregation better than garlic, important for people with congestive heart disease (CHF). • Cardiotonic: increases the pumping ability of the heart. • Immunologic: increases immune system biochemicals and immune cell activity. • Anti-Ulcer: prevents and treats ulcers from ethanol, indomethacin, aspirin, and some other chemicals. • Thermogenic: warms the body (yang).

Adverse affects: may cause minor gastrointestinal complaints, may cause gastric ulcers in doses larger than 6 grams of dried powder per day, may cause dermatitis, should not be used in people with gallstones, should not be used with people with bleeding tendencies, and may cause central nervous system depression and cardiac arrhythmias in overdoses. In America, the law-suit capital of the world, ginger is contraindicated in pregnancy by the American Herbal Products Association, though no clinical evidence has ever been found that it affects mother or fetus. Drug interactions: ginger should not be used with: anticoagulants, antiplatelet drugs, heparins, or thrombolytic drugs. Dosage: ginger powder is probably the most common form used, though it comes in capsules, chewable tablets, liquid extracts, and teas. Dosage averages 1-2 grams of powder (or its equivalent) per day. Remember: overdosage has been reported in amounts over 6 grams per day. Here is a great recipe for warm ginger milk. Enjoy!

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
