My Oral Health Journey by Dr. Yolanda Cintron

I

have been practicing biological dentistry for 21 years in Fort Lauderdale, and for years have been sharing my patients’ testimonials here on Natural Awakenings. Today, I am going to share a recent testimonial about myself and how I found an abscessed tooth that was affecting my skin, my kidneys and my overall health. Dentistry is my life; for 31 years I have devoted every day to helping others in my practice. As you can imagine, I am a health fanatic, I get my teeth and gums cleaned monthly, I brush, floss and clean my tongue, and take vitamins from A to Z. I acquire the most cutting-edge technologies and have attended hundreds of dental and medical conferences to advance my abilities as a dentist. I recently acquired an amazing German quantum medical device that registers frequencies by quickly scanning your hand. Knowing my medical dental history, I started to play with my new toy and see how the computer interpreted my history. I chose to do a microbiology report and scanned my hands for six seconds. This report detailed both my digestive health and oral health. To my disbelief the report said I had an abscess on my nasolabial fold area. I had no pain in that area so my first reaction was denial that my oral health wasn’t perfect. No recent X-rays showed infection in that tooth. I also had no outward symptoms. However, I was having pain in my left back kidney area which is connected to that tooth’s meridian line.

No doctor had been able to help me solve that particular ailment and all my bloodwork had come back normal with no signs of infection.

I knew I had to investigate further. Luckily we have a new CT scan machine for our patients. The scan was able to show my hidden abscess three dimensionally, confirming what the Cyberscan had discovered in the report. My denial turned from disbelief to relief that I had discovered something ailing me for many years with no symptoms. How can I have an abscess on tooth #7? How did this happen? I began to think of my mouth as if it was my patient. Possibilities are: trauma caused by an accident; biting the wrong foods at a wrong angle; hitting the tooth with a glass, bottle or fork; decay;

orthodontics—clenching, bruxing, etc. I knew the only thing I could do was remove the tooth and begin to detox my body. A patient of mine had a similar problem with the same tooth, however, he didn’t want to remove the abscessed tooth. Later, his wife called me from the ICU where he spent three weeks having his brain drained of the infection and he has never been the same. I got scared and took action; I knew I had to put myself first. Once the root cause of my ailment was removed, I proceeded to detox my gut and my intestines so my God-given, perfectly made body would be able to be restored, repaired and regenerated. I made sure to seek God first and pray to him for my health. I surrounded myself with people who love and appreciate me. I made sure to practice self-love and take grounding long walks on the beach and swim in the ocean. I am thankful that God protected my body and was able to contain such a bad infection for maybe years. Life is short—I encourage you to live with passion. Take care of yourself; pay attention to your thoughts and emotions. Your body does not lie; listen to it and please call us if you want help finding out root causes of your ailments through the technology we are blessed to have and know how to use.

Stop Drinking Pesticides in Your Wine!

W

hy organic wine? Does it make a difference? Yes, it does make a difference to your health and the environment. Everyday products such as spinach, apples, peaches, strawberries and blueberries have elevated levels of agricultural pesticides and therefore we purchase organic. Hidden is the fact that grapes are also heavily sprayed. These pesticides and chemicals then go into the making of our wines. The grapes must be free of toxic persistent pesticides and herbicides, antibiotics, growth hormones, sludge and irradiation and not derived from GMO to be labeled organic. Some wines are labeled as sustainably farmed. Sustainable agriculture must be all three; ecologically sound, economically viable and socially responsible. And the three must be in harmony. Organic certification can vary. The global standard and most common prerequisite is that the wines are made from certified organically grown grapes. In the USA an organic wine is defined as “wine made from organically grown grapes without added

sulfites”. By definition, majority of organic wines should be referred to as “wines made from organic grapes”, since they may contain 100ppm of added sulfites in wine. This definition is used in Canada, Europe and most wine-making countries except the US, which requires “sulfite free”. All countries monitor the amount of sulfur dioxide (SO2) present in wines. SO2 occurs naturally as a byproduct of the fermentation process. Sulfites in wine have been added for hundreds of years as a preservative. Today, over 99% of commercial wines contain sulfites. The wines carried at Healthy Life Salon and Organic Bar do not contain any additional added sulfites. Data from the California Department of Pesticide Regulation (*) lists these pesticides and chemicals; sprayed on non-organic vineyards; shown to cause harm to the environment and to our bodily functions. Not immediate, but cumulative over time: • Boscalid/Chlorantraniliprole: bee hazard. • Imidacloprid/Methoxyfenozide: kills bees and birds. • 1, 3 Dichloropropene: probable carcinogen. Mucous membrane irritator causing chest pain and breathing difficulties. Linked to lymphomas and leukemia. • Mancozeb: developmental toxin and probable carcinogen; thyroid hormone interrupter. • Oxyfluorfen: possible carcinogen; liver toxicity and causes anemia. • Pendimethalin: possible carcinogen; skin and eye irritant; causes thyroid problems and could disrupt pregnancy. • Chlorpyrifos: neurotoxin; blocks enzymes that control the nervous system, especially in children; causes headaches, agitation, and leads to an inability to concentrate. • Glufosinate ammonium: neurotoxin; effects central nervous system development. Could lead to birth defects In conclusion, please be aware of the products, foods, and wines that you consume. You personally are the ultimate decision maker for your own future and your own health. It does make a difference! Enjoy the good life! Healthy Life Salon and Organic Wine Bar, a full service cruelty-free organic salon & spa is located in downtown Boca Raton.

April Showers Bring—Opportunities!

R

aise your hand if you remember the childhood rhyme, “April Showers bring May flowers.” Showers? For sure. And so much more. Everything feels fresh and new as Spring makes its entrance. Flower buds strain to open, tree leaves unfurl, baby birds’ mouths yawn open in anticipation of their first meals. Families gather to celebrate the arrival of Spring with Easter and Passover. How do you welcome Spring? For me, it’s the time for serious housecleaning—and for inner cleansing—to wash away the accumulated dross of winter. Some folks use fasts, superfood greens and other methods to detox. After trying several superfoods that were, in a word, icky, my fiancé Michael and I recently started using a powerful greens drink we actually like and feel great about. You can check it out at mytastygreens.com. Reflexology sessions offer a soothing, gentle way to eliminate toxins. Professional reflexology sessions are also a great way to boost your energy for that housecleaning! Between sessions my book, Feet First, and my home study DVDs provide easy to follow routines for inner cleansing and recharging your energy reserves.

days just seem to go together. And yup, reflexology is great for romance too! In my Sole Mates chapter in Feet First, you’ll find some reflexology steps to enhance lovemaking—and additional steps for sexual dysfunction, improving intimacy, making up after a fight, and making decisions together. Time to start something new? Spring is a great time to learn a new skill. How about taking a course in Holistic Reflexology! You’ll come away with a new appreciation for the power of touch. And you’ll be ready to help yourself and others experience peace and serenity, boost their immune system, relieve pain and anxiety, sleep like a baby and wake up restored and refreshed. Begin with an introductory course to see for yourself. Compassionate people from all walks of life study reflexology. Some to help family and friends, others to start a new career. Massage therapists, estheticians, physi-

cal therapists, nurses, midwives and other clinicians take the training to expand their services and earn continuing education credits. April days bring a shower of opportunities—now’s the time to take your first steps and watch yourself bloom! Laura Norman, M.S., LMT, world-renowned Holistic Reflexologist and author of the bestselling book, Feet First: A Guide to Foot Reflexology, offers private Holistic Reflexology and Inspired Life Coaching sessions at Thermae Retreat in Delray Beach and Holistic Reflexology Training Programs in Boynton Beach starting April 27th. Educational DVDs in Foot, Hand and Face Reflexology and natural aromatherapy products available.Beautiful instant gift certificates available online for all occasions.Visit www.lauranorman.com Call 561-272-1220 • Text 917-331-0428

Reflexology sessions transport you to a state of profound relaxation, perfect for visualizing your desires and a wonderful preparation for meditation and other mindfulness practices. How do you look in your favorite summer clothes? Ready to shed some winter weight? Reflexology is great for that, too! Try a Feet First routine that helps you release unwanted pounds. Say goodbye to seasonal allergies. Reflexology can help when pollen season arrives. Reflexology calms the nervous system, relieves stress and helps you breathe freely. “In Spring a young man’s fancy turns to thoughts of love.” ~ Alfred Tennyson Love is in the air.

Anyone Can Learn to Utilize the Empowering Energy of Reiki!

T

he word Rei-Ki translates from Japanese to simply mean spiritually guided life force energy. All energy healing techniques, Reiki, Touch for Health, Polarity therapy, Qi Gong, etc, utilize a current of connection with our Rei (the Universe, Creator Highest self) and our Ki (Qi, our internal vitality, physical force). Any living thing has a flow of Rei and Ki expressing through it. Edgar Cayce called this the river of Light, I refer to this as a Lightstream of infinite love and potential. Created within this Lightstream are wonderful and various qualities or frequencies. Just like a piano keyboard has 88 notes which can create an amazing amount of music, vibration, moods, expressions and energy, so this Infinite Light source holds specific vibrations of colors, sounds and feelings that can be used for healing, meditation, everyday living and a profound sense of well being. Learning to access and use Reiki requires training in the history of Reiki and how it has evolved, as well as an activation/attunement of energy that harmonizes the current of connection through our energy field to the Divine source of all healing. The more one practices being in this current the stronger the flow becomes. This usually leads to more sensitivity in the hands, as well as enhancing ones intuitive ability. It is helpful with learning to protect your own energy field and keeping yourself strong and radiant. Reiki is a tool that anchors within you and combines easily with any other healing method or vocation. Whether you are a pet sitter, mechanic, massage therapist, yoga teacher, acupuncturist, parent, dentist, chiropractor or bartender, this Reiki current of creation expands its flow through you aligning with your talents and intentions. Many people have asked about Usui Holy Fire ® Reiki. It is an upgraded energy frequency of Reiki given initially in January, 2014 through William Lee Rand, founder of the International Center for Reiki Training. Holy Fire ® Reiki has been shown to be both powerful and gentle while providing purification, healing, self empowerment, and guidance. I decided to meditate on why this upgrade was necessary and why, after 20 years of practicing Reiki, should I embrace this? My Inner Guidance revealed that William Rand has been devoted to the energy and expansion of Reiki for since 1989. He has encouraged hundreds of other Reiki Masters to flourish and has the ability to connect and share this Ascended Frequency of Reiki with many people. The name, Usui Holy Fire ® Reiki was given to William through his spiritual guidance. He was not looking for a new form of Reiki, but was praying and considering expanding the teaching methods. Holy Fire ® Reiki is an aspect of the stream of Light from the Pure Light of Source Love and is honored and respected by all healers, (Physical or Ascended) It is a higher frequency vibration given to assist us with the Ascending energy on the planet. As we have 12

expanded in consciousness the Masters of Light offered this Holy Fire ® Reiki to upgrade our vibration and take us even further into creating health and harmony with Creator. After taking the Holy Fire ® Reiki training with William Rand in the summer of 2016, and using the energy of Usui Holy Fire ®, I feel like I have had an upgrade! This experience is similar to when I upgraded my old iphone. The old one worked just fine, but the new upgraded version has way more potential! Other Reiki Masters who have trained with me or elsewhere sometimes refer to Usui Holy Fire ® as Reiki amplified times 10 in comparison of increased energy flow while using it in a healing practice! These are some of the experiences William Rand has noted on his website, www.reiki.org • Usui Holy Fire ® Reiki Works continuously even when not thinking about it and spontaneously heals issues as they come up. • Heals deeply and quickly without distress. • Heals relationships and interactions with others. • Releases worry and replaces it with a sense of safety. • Spontaneously provides guidance for every level of life experience. • Tends to develop all the personality traits that are healthy for a person to have such as love of self and others, kindness, patience, confidence, vitality, enthusiasm, optimism, trust, joy, and peace. • Once received, it continues to develop itself to be more evolved and effective. Deena has been assisting clients of all ages in their healing processes using the gentle, powerful energy of Reiki since 1995 and feels privileged to be able to offer healing services to you. Trained in the traditional Reiki of Dr Usui she very much honors the pure intention of Divine service that the Masters taught. Now, as the energy of the planet is expanding, she is certified as a Holy Fire II Karuna® master, bringing upgraded energy to the practice.

THE HEALING POWER OF ART

A

rt is a powerful and efficient tool that can help you to resolve many unexplained behaviors. Art helps people express experiences that are too difficult to put into words. It touches a part of oneself, where all the mysteries of pain, grief, anger and anguish are sitting. Numerous studies have shown that art has emerged as an effective means of enhancing physical, emotional and spiritual health and wellness. “Henry Schaefer-Simmern (1948) carried out art programs among varied groups, including delinquents, the developmentally disabled, and a group of business people which showed clearly that authentic artistic expression will unfold in a natural progression in anyone given the opportunity to make art”. Before you start to paint, reflect or meditate and see what you feel. Ask yourself: Do you feel the need to release tension or bring uplifting energy in? Let that energy flow out onto the paper or canvas. Pick the color you are drawn to. These are the colors your intuition is telling you that you need. Every color has its own energy level. The colors you choose will have the most impact on your reaction to the painting, so follow your intuition.

We slowly learn to surrender to a process greater than ourselves and loosen our tight grip of control. We can cultivate a sense of spontaneity and playfulness that opens up our imaginations to new possibilities. Artmaking encourages curiosity and help us to discover and explore ourselves on many levels. It leads us to our authentic self and as a result with that entire process we feel empowered. The focus of the expressive arts is not on a specific technique or the quality of the product itself. It is on the power and process of symbolic expression in any of the arts for healing and integration. When creating it, we become lost and absorbed and lose track of time. It’s magical. It takes you to another world. As an artist, I am a strong advocate for the arts. It has helped me tremendously. It enlightened me as a very powerful and personal means of visual expression. I was inspired to transfer all my energy and agony into what I was going through due to my chronic health condition. That prompted me to make it my mission to empower others . . . via art.

Always remember that every artist was first an amateur, so you might just be the next Picasso. Do it for the fun of it, and the tranquility it provides you. In the process, you will realize that it can make a big difference in the quality of your life and help you understand yourself and the world around you in a better way.

onthly MEETING and LECTURE: “Insights gained from 50 years of study: the socially complex lives of Florida Scrub-Jays” by Reed Bowman, Ph.D., Director, Avian Ecology Program, Archbold Biological Station Tuesday April 2, 7:00 p.m. meeting & lecture. Light refreshments at 6:30. Rooms 101 and 102 at FAU Pine Jog Environmental Education Center, 6301 Summit Blvd, (near Jog Road) in West Palm Beach. Meeting is free and open to the public. PROGRAM In his program, “Insights gained from 50 years of study: the socially complex lives of Florida Scrub-Jays,” Dr Reed Bowman uses insights gained from the long-term study of the Florida Scrub Jay at the Archbold Biological Station to describe the behaviors of this unique species. The only species of bird endemic to Florida and one of only 15 species endemic to the entire continental United States, it is tracked by birders who travel from across the country to observe it. The bird is known to have been present in Florida as a distinct species for at least 2 million years. About the Speaker: Dr. Reed Bowman is the Director of the Avian Ecology Program at Archbold Biological Station. He has lived and worked in Florida for nearly 35 years and is co-author of the recent book Florida Bird Species: An Annotated List. For the last 35 years, he has studied several of Florida’s most endangered birds: the Florida Scrub-Jay, Red-cockaded Woodpecker, Florida Grasshopper Sparrow and White-crowned Pigeon. He is a Fellow of the American Ornithological Society, past President of the Association of Field Ornithologists and the Florida Ornithological Society, and recipient of the Margaret Morse Nice Medal for lifetime achievement in ornithology from the Wilson Ornithological Society. He directs the longterm study of Florida Scrub-Jay ecology, one of the world’s longest-running studies of wild birds, now in its 50th year. He has authored over 90 scientific papers, edited or authored three books, and was one of the co-founders of JayWatch, a volunteer citizen-science project that monitors populations of Florida Scrub-Jays throughout the state. Audubon Everglades has been a strong supporter of the JayWatch program. The Florida Scrub-Jay was officially listed as a threatened state species by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission in 1975, and it was listed as a threatened federal species by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service in 1987. It is estimated that, in the last 100 years, 90% of the Florida Scrub-Jay’s population has been lost.

Living Miraculously- The Benefits of “Magical Thinking”

A

lthough St Paddy’s day is over, I started thinking about legends, folklore, superstitions and rituals and why we still engage in what some people call “Magical Thinking.” People all over the globe engage in religious and folk rituals and superstitions. In this age of “reason” (a dubious term these days) why would we still feel a pull towards wanting to preserve the myths of the past or believe that certain rituals might control our good luck? Why do we make a wish before blowing out our birthday candles, cross our fingers, knock on wood or perhaps carry a symbolic keepsake for good luck? Why do we believe in such things as Numerology and Astrology? To some this is magical thinking, but is magical thinking bad? “Magical Thinking” Is Good For You. Religious and cultural superstitions connect us to our cultural heritage. It helps us to make sense of our existence and our common humanity. As humans, we are drawn to patterns. Recognizing patterns allow us to predict and expect what is coming. A numerical pattern that is pervasive throughout the universe is the Fibonacci Sequence, also known as the Golden Ratio. (Numerology of course is one of my favorite predictors of cycles and trends). Cavemen sought out patterns to survive. We seek out patterns to understand and to find meaning in life. There are events in our life that we cannot explain rationally. The belief that we have

a connection to the unknown and a higher purpose gives us hope. And without hope, there is no life and “Magical Thinking” as it turns out... is good for you! Here’s why: *Magical thinking can enhance creativity. People who engage in magical thinking tend to be daydreamers, more optimistic and good at brainstorming. *The Placebo Effect: The proven theory that a non-medication i.e., a sugar pill can cause medical improvement if the patient strongly believes it will. *Magical Thinking gives you confidence. It allows you to believe in the “big picture “and the possibility of your big dream and vision becoming a reality. There are so many examples of magical thinkers who have made their dreams a reality. Here’s one I love from an interview with Nic Pizzolatto, according to Carlota Zimmerman from the Huff Post: Nic Pizzolatto, the creator/writer behind True Detective was already a published author and college professor when he heard that there was a job that would allow him to fulfill his dreams of writing for TV... ding ding ding! He experienced that moment of understanding that what he had yearned for was possible if he worked very hard. And he did the work. Today, we hear the name Nic Pizzolatto and we think, Oh yeah, the True Detective guy. Before his series debuted on HBO, if Nic had told his fellow faculty that, “Yeah, I’m writing a show that’s going to change TV,” many of them would have rolled

their eyes. He dreamed it, he did it. Such is the glory of magical thinking. In the same Daily Beast interview, Nic Pizzolatto mentions that a lot of people wouldn’t have even bothered sending in their spec scripts. Unfortunately, he’s right. The bad part of magical thinking is that, for many people, identifying their big goals immediately makes them feel unworthy, overwhelmed and frightened. Who the hell am I, they think, to want so much? (Spoiler alert: You’re human.) Need more convincing? To be an “unmagical thinker” is very “unhealthy” says Peter Brugger, head of neuropsychology at University Hospital Zurich. His data suggests that lack of magical ideation negatively impacts one’s ability to experience pleasure. So there you have it. All you Magical Thinkers and Law of Attraction enthusiasts go for your pot o’ gold and your great big dream. You can bask in the knowledge that psychology, science AND the Universe has your back!

The heavy use of household cleaning disinfectants may contribute to changes in infant gut bacteria and weight gain, reports a new study in the Canadian Medical Association Journal. University of Alberta researchers collected fecal samples and studied the gut health of 757 babies between the ages of 3 and 4 months; then restudied the children at 1 and 3 years old. They found that children in households that used disinfectants at least once a week had higher body mass index (BMI) scores and elevated levels of Lachnospiraceae, gut microbes linked in other studies to insulin resistance and metabolic disorders. Babies in households that used vinegar or other eco-friendly cleaners had lower BMI scores and much lower levels of a family of bacteria that includes E. coli.

By mixing food additives with human gut microbes in petri dishes, scientists at the Czech Republic’s Institute of Microbiology found that gut microbes with antiinflammatory properties were highly susceptible to being harmed by additives, while microbes with pro-inflammatory properties were mostly resistant. “We speculate that permanent exposure of human gut microbiota to even low levels of additives may modify the composition and function of gut microbiota, and thus influence the host’s immune system,” wrote the authors.

Smoking Bans Lower Blood Pressure Non-smokers that live in areas that have banned smoking in public spaces such as restaurants, bars and workplaces have lower systolic blood pressure. In a Northwestern University study reported by the American Heart Association, blood pressure readings of 5,115 adults ages 18 to 30 in Birmingham, Chicago, Minneapolis and Oakland were taken over a 30-year period and correlated with changes in local laws that banned public smoking. A meaningful decrease in systolic blood pressure readings was found in non-smokers when no-smoking laws were enacted, indicating a reduction in heart disease risk.

Sperm counts have plunged by half in the last 40 years among American and European men, according to a recent review of scientific studies. In a new doubleblind study of 56 infertile men, researchers at Iran’s Qazvin University of Medical Sciences found that curcumin, an active ingredient in turmeric, can boost sperm counts. Each day for 10 weeks, half of the men took 80 milligrams of curcumin nanomicelle, in which curcumin is better absorbed; the other 28 were given a placebo. The researchers found that the curcumin significantly boosted sperm count and motility. 18

Research on 66 patients with bipolar disorder found that patients receiving probiotic supplements were three times less likely to be rehospitalized than those given a placebo. The study from the Sheppard Pratt Health System, in Baltimore, gave half of discharged patients a placebo and the other half a capsule containing two probiotics, Bifidobacterium lactis (BB-12) and Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (LGG). Within 26 weeks, 24 of the 33 people that received the placebo returned to the hospital, but only eight of the 33 on probiotics were readmitted. The probiotic treatment was especially effective for those experiencing considerable inflammation, say researchers.

Drinking lots of sugar-sweetened sodas and juices significantly increases the risk of chronic kidney disease, reports a new study from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Using health questionnaires for 3,003 African-American adults in Jackson, Mississippi, covering a 13-year period, the researchers found that the top third of subjects, those consuming the most sugar-sweetened drinks, were 61 percent more likely to develop kidney disease than those in the bottom third.

Acute, late-day stress may be harder on our bodies, say researchers at Japan’s Hokkaido University. They measured the levels of the stress hormone cortisol in 27 young, healthy volunteers, and then put them through 15 minutes of stressful events that included making a speech and doing mental math. Half of the volunteers were tested two hours after awakening, the other group 10 hours after awakening. The subjects’ levels of cortisol, which helps provide the body with energy in the face of a perceived need for fight or flight, rose strongly in the morning, but not in the evening, suggesting that the human body is more equipped to deal with stress early in the day and becomes more vulnerable later.

Worldwide Worry

global briefs

Under final rules released by the current administration, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s national labeling standard for genetically modified organisms (GMOs) completely exempts foods made with highly processed ingredients grown with GMOs, including sugar made from sugar beets, high-fructose corn syrup and refined soybean and canola oils. The change will allow 78 percent of products containing GMOs to avoid disclosure, according to the Grocery Manufacturers Association. Companies don’t have to comply until January 1, 2022, and the new labels will use the term “bioengineered” instead of more common identifiers like “genetically engineered” or “GMO”. Small businesses, to-go food prepared at grocery stores, and meat, eggs or dairy from animals that are fed GMOs, which involves virtually all livestock not certified organic, are exempt from the labeling requirements.

Citrus Crops to Receive Human Antibiotics

Scientists at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) expressed concern over a recent ruling by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) that opens the door to widespread use of the antibiotics streptomycin and oxytetracycline to spray commercial citrus crops. The antibiotics, which are often used on people, can kill insects that transmit a bacterium that causes citrus greening, which renders fruit small and bitter. But the EPA ultimately ruled that the economic benefits outweigh concerns about antibiotic resistance and potential harm to the environment, people and wildlife. The USDA says the amount of antibiotic exposure to people who eat fruit or juices still will be far less than what people are exposed to when prescribed antibiotics by their doctor. The antibiotics will have to be sprayed repeatedly over years just to keep the trees alive and producing fruit until they succumb to citrus greening. Public interest groups are protesting the action.

Environmental risks are the top three concerns among the 1,000 global decision-makers surveyed in the latest Global Risks Perception Survey of the World Economic Forum (WEF). For the third straight year, “extreme weather” ranked first, followed by “failed climate change mitigation” and “natural disasters”. The survey was part of a WEF annual report produced in advance of the recent confab of global leaders in Davos, Switzerland. The World Bank has calculated that the real cost of natural disasters to the global economy is $520 billion per year.

Several of the designated storage facilities in the seven countries surveyed are nearly filled to capacity now. Unresolved safety issues across the industry include fire risk, venting of radioactive gases, environmental contamination, failure of containers, terrorist attacks and escalating costs. More than 65 years after the start of the civil use of nuclear power, 250,000 tons of highly radioactive spent fuel exists in 14 countries, and underground storage, seemingly the most viable option, has encountered major obstacles.

Healthier Dry Cleaning

tomas garcia/Shutterstock.com

Non-Toxic Ways to Lower Risks

Chemicals used in dry cleaning clothes have long been linked to health concerns for both people and the environment. Perchloroethylene (“perc” for short) is most commonly used in this process. Federal regulatory agencies have documented myriad negative effects from exposure to the petroleum-based solvent. The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration links it to dizziness, blurred vision, loss of coordination and other nervous system effects, including memory loss. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency calls perc a likely human carcinogen “by all routes of exposure.” The EPA also warns that the chemical can leak into the ground, contaminating water supplies, and react in the air to form smog, which has been associated with respiratory effects. Earthtalk.org suggests there are safer alternatives through products and processes used by independent “green” dry cleaners nationwide. These include a biodegradable liquid silicone—essentially liquefied sand—which doesn’t chemically react with fabric fibers. It’s safe to use on delicate garments like beads, lace, silk and cashmere, and won’t cause shrinkage. GreenEarth22

Palm Beach Edition

napalmbeach.com

Cleaning.com includes a store locator function. Another good option is wet cleaning, whereby fabric is laundered in a computer-controlled washer and dryer that uses water—along with specialized soaps and conditioners instead of solvents—and spins its contents much more slowly than a typical home washing machine. Because wet cleaning is free of hazardous volatile organic compounds like those in perc, it eliminates health and safety risks, as well as environmental hazards associated with traditional dry cleaning, according to GreenAmerica. org. As an added benefit, the equipment and operating costs are lower. While the biggest disadvantage to wet cleaning is that it produces waste water, it’s still a highly energy-efficient method. Another method is liquid carbon dioxide (CO2) cleaning, in which some commercial cleaners use the pressurized gas in combination with other gentle cleaning agents to dissolve and remove dirt, fats and oils in clothing instead of using perc; or consider simply handwashing delicate clothes and fabrics in a mild, non-toxic detergent, and then hanging them outside to dry.

Netflix Series Reveals Its Fragile Beauty

Ten years after the groundbreaking documentary Planet Earth, an eightpart sequel, Our Planet, shows even more rapturous scenes of our planet’s most precious species and fragile habitats. Premiering globally April 5 on Netflix, it was filmed during four years in 50 countries across every continent, involving more than 600 film crew members and 3,500 days spent in such habitats as the remote Arctic wilderness, the vast landscapes of Africa and the diverse jungles of South America. The series, narrated by worldrenowned naturalist Sir David Attenborough, is a joint venture of Netflix, the World Wildlife Federation and Silverback Films, whose director Alastair Fothergill was the creator of the critically acclaimed original Planet Earth and Blue Planet series. “Our Planet will take viewers on a spectacular journey of discovery showcasing the beauty and fragility of our natural world,” says Attenborough. “Today, we have become the greatest threat to the health of our home, but there’s still time for us to address the challenges we’ve created, if we act now. We need the world to pay attention.”

It’s turned out to be one of the best investments we’ve ever made—financially and environmentally.

Power Switch Taking a Home Off the Grid by Jim Motavalli

J

esse Stafford and Alyssa Craft quit their jobs in 2015, bought five acres of remote land far away from utilities and began building their 36-foot-by-36-foot timber frame home from scratch. Next up was a septic system, then a clean water source and, of course, alternative energy. Their rooftop solar panels are backed up by a reliable Honda generator. They had some setbacks, which is to be expected. Now they’re blogging about it. “We didn’t want corporate jobs, we didn’t want to live in the city, commute to work or have a mortgage payment,” they write in their online homestead journey at PureLivingForLife.com. Off-the-grid living has become downright fashionable, especially for the ecoconscious. But leaving the rat race isn’t easy, and it’s not for everyone. Yet, anyone that wants to become more energy-independent can succeed without moving to an isolated cabin; and there’s never been a better time, because prices keep coming down and technology keeps improving. Choosing the best option depends on several factors, including the specific residence, climatic zone, town and neighborhood. 24

Preliminary Considerations Power source: Choose from among

solar ($12,000 to $50,000, depending on the system’s size), wind ($6,000 to $22,000, including installation) or geothermal ($20,000 to $25,000).

Ample resources: Find out if there’s steady wind, plentiful sun, a place to install geothermal pipes and whether the home is properly oriented for solar without obstruction by trees or tall buildings. Electricity needed: Get a quick average

by adding up the wattage of all appliances, and then add 50 percent. The American average is 10,000 kilowatt-hours annually, although frugal folks can make do with less. The local utility company can also estimate energy needs based on past usage. Realize that alternative energy doesn’t need to be an all-or-nothing proposition. For instance, a solar system doesn’t have to power the whole house. A smaller and cheaper array with battery backup can be connected to essential services like the water heater, refrigerator and electric stove, with the grid handling heavier loads. Advantages

are lower upfront cost and access to the grid when needed. Connecting to the grid makes sense for all alternative power sources, because wind and solar are intermittent, and don’t always provide power. Also, most states offer net metering, which requires the local utility to pay for the electricity a homeowner puts back into the grid.

Solar: Plunging Costs Solar panels for electricity, usually made of silicon, consist of photovoltaic cells that convert sunlight into direct current (DC). Their cost has come down dramatically in recent years. In January, the average solar panel cost $3.14 a watt, a bottom line of roughly $18,000 with a six-kilowatt system big enough for most homes. The price fell 6.5 percent from January 2018, reports EnergySage.com, a solar vendor pricing source. A federal tax credit covers 30 percent of the cost, so the out-of-pocket cost for a system would be approximately $13,000 if installed before year’s end, when the full residential tax credit is available. Partial tax credits will be available until they are phased out in 2022. Ron Blumenfeld, a retired doctor in Fairfield, Connecticut, serves on his town’s sustainability task force and “went live” with his rooftop installation six years ago. “It’s turned out to be one of the best investments we’ve ever made—financially and environmentally,” he says. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is working toward residential solar to generate power at just five cents per kilowatt-hour by 2030, which means it will be far cheaper than grid electricity. Consumers can either buy a system outright or—as a popular alternative—lease the system with no upfront costs. Leasing companies like SolarCity (now part of Tesla) pioneered this approach, in which consumers agree to buy

electricity from the system installed on their roof. Whether to add the extra expense of battery backup is important. A pair of Tesla Powerwalls will cost about $14,000 installed and store enough electricity to power a home for seven days. It’s suitable for people looking to go off the grid because the sun doesn’t always shine, and power generated on sunny days can be stored and used when it’s overcast. Off-the-grid solar is not just for those living in sun-rich states. Installers can look at a property—often remotely, through applications like Google Earth—and determine if solar is appropriate. Sometimes a few trees will have to be sacrificed, but the benefits are manifold, and not just because there will be power during grid blackouts.

Wind: If the Resource is Right Wind power accounted for the largest share of renewable energy growth in 2017, reports the International Energy Agency, but it’s in its infancy for homeowners, partly due to an average cost of $48,000 to $65,000 per installed project. Residential turbines have been installed in all 50 states, but many parts of the U.S. have marginal resources. Check the Department of Energy wind resource guide for local data at WindExchange.Energy.Gov. The best-case scenario is strong winds plus few neighbors close to a large property (and lenient zoning laws). Wind may work for the 19.3 percent of the population that lives in rural areas and the 21 million American homes built on properties of an acre or more. However, it isn’t for everyone. James Weston, of Greene, Maine, installed his turbine 10 years ago, and considers his rooftop solar panels a better investment. “By the time you put up your 100-foot tower to get the tower above the tree line and optimize the wind resource, the return isn’t there,” he says, noting that his savings from the turbine amount to a few hundred dollars a year. Bergey WindPower, maker of the 10-kilowatt BWC Excel 10 turbine ($31,770), recommends that a property have at least a 10 mph average wind speed, coupled with high electricity prices of 10 cents per kilowatt-hour or more. Also

Residential wind power is in its infancy in the U.S. consider the neighbors: The system’s turbine is typically installed on an 80-to-100-foot tower, and so-called “viewshed” objections have taken down many projects (including Cape Wind, in Massachusetts). With annual maintenance, the DOE reports that small wind turbines should last about 20 years, the same basic lifespan as solar panels. The federal production tax credit for wind is available this year, but won’t be available afterwards. Some states offer incentives. A useful small wind guidebook can be found at WindExchange.Energy.gov/smallwind-guidebook.

Geothermal: Available Anywhere Some common misconceptions about home geothermal are that consumers need to live in one of the planet’s “hot spots” (think Iceland, California or Utah). But the truth is the Earth’s temperature just below the surface almost anywhere is a constant 45 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit, and the Northeast and Midwest have the highest geothermal adoption rates. Geothermal doesn’t necessarily require a large piece of property. Local geology will be a factor in siting and sizing the system. Geothermal systems use underground pipes filled with refrigerant that absorbs warmth from the ground through a heat exchanger. In summer, that same underground temperature can be tapped to cool a home,

combining heating and air conditioning in one system. While it necessitates a relatively high upfront cost, low operating costs mean the systems can pay for themselves in less than 10 years. Most include a ground-source heat pump with a 50-year warranty. For a 2,500-square-foot home, an average off-theelectrical-grid system will cost $20,000 to $25,000 to install. Bill Martin, in Quincy, California, runs an efficient three-ton geothermal system installed in 2014. “It’s been a very good experience,” he says. “I’m ecstatically happy.” The same 30 percent federal tax credit that applies to solar also applies to geothermal for systems installed by 2020. States also provide incentives. A detailed guide on availability is available at Tinyurl.com/GeothermalHeatPumpListing.

Special Considerations

Buildings, especially older structures, are usually sieves in terms of energy loss, so before investing in a system, check to see if the local utility provides free energy audits. Even if it’s not free, it’s worth finding out if the home needs new windows or strategically applied insulation. There are scammers in every field, and alternative energy is no exception. Ask providers for references to previous customers and check for online cautions from the Better Business Bureau, Yelp and others. Alternative energy in any form can save money and precious resources. Explore the options thoroughly and choose wisely before pulling the plug.

If a Stream Runs Through It P

roperties with moving water have a fourth sustainable power source available to them: hydroelectric. If opting to harness the energy in a nearby flowing stream or river, 10-kilowatt microhydropower systems can power even large homes. They combine piping from the water source to a turbine, pump or waterwheel with an alternator or generator, regulator and wiring. According to Home Power magazine, a fully installed hydro system for the average use of a modern household might cost $20,000 to $100,000. April 2019

ood revolutionary Ocean Robbins has dedicated his life to inspiring others to rethink their food choices to transform both personal and planetary health. It’s a path forged in part by his father, John Robbins, who walked away from the family ice cream company, BaskinRobbins, to become an acclaimed health advocate and author. Together, father and son founded the 500,000-plus-member Food Revolution Network, an online education and advocacy platform that works for healthy, sustainable, humane and delicious food for all. Ocean launched Youth for Environmental Sanity (YES!) at age 16, and directed the organization for 20 years. Ocean’s new book, 31-Day Food Revolution: Heal Your Body, Feel Great, and Transform Your World, aims to help individuals revamp their diets, and in turn, themselves and their communities. It distills his lifetime of knowledge and wisdom on food, health and activism into an accessible how-to guide. Learn more at 31DayFoodRevolution.com.

compromise—but when it comes to food, the choices that are best for us personally also happen to be best for the planet. Eating a plantbased diet, organically grown when possible, is not only linked to the best statistical outcomes for long-term health and well-being, it also helps ensure healthy topsoil, water and a stable climate for future generations.

In what ways have you seen members of the Food Revolution Network transform their communities?

We hear incredible stories from members all over the world who are seeing radical changes in their health—reversing heart disease, losing weight, gaining energy and mental clarity. And we also hear inspiring stories of people turning food deserts into wonderful oases of healthy living; for example, Ron Finley, in South Central Los Angeles, who is known for saying that drive-throughs kill more people than drive-by shootings in his neighborhood. He planted vegetables for the community in the curbside dirt strip in front of his home—and got cited by the city for it. He ended up getting the laws changed, and has since started The Ron Finley Project to create an urban community food hub

In many situations in life, we have to compromise—but when it comes to food, the choices that are best for us personally also happen to be best for the planet. ~Ocean Robbins where the community can come together to plant, learn and nourish themselves.

What are some ways busy people can connect with like-minded individuals to support healthy lifestyle and diet changes?

Start by finding out if you have loved ones who do share your food values, and nurture those relationships. Lean into those healthy relationships; you might be surprised how many people around you are also quietly trying to achieve similar goals. You can also ask friends and family to be a food ally; even if they are not a full participant in your health regimen, they might be a fan or friend. That can mean preparing particular foods if you come for dinner or simply checking in on how you are doing with your goals and commitments. You can widen your circle of healthy eating through meal swaps or other shared meal programs. It’s always easier to cook in larger quantities, and there is the added benefit of greater social connection with shared meals. If you are looking for new friends and allies, it helps to connect to organizations that are already promoting healthy food hubs. There are many listed in the back of 31-Day Food Revolution. So many people struggle with loneliness, and some are afraid they will feel even more isolated if they step out into a healthy eating regimen. On the contrary, you can become a magnet for people who care about their world and aren’t content with the status quo. These friendships can often become deeper and more valued than ever.

What has been one of the biggest challenges you’ve faced in living a lifestyle against the societal grain, and how have you overcome it?

Impatience. I grew up eating all-natural food; my parents almost named me Kale, and I ate a lot of it growing up. At a certain point, I saw that I had become judgmental and dogmatic when encountering people whose choices did not align with my own, though as Martin Luther King Jr. said, we have no moral authority with those who can feel our underlying contempt. I have since developed a profound respect for each individual’s unique values, needs, experiences and priorities. I advocate for people’s right to make their own choices about what they need. My goal is to help facilitate people’s choices, and to do so with compassion. Connect with freelance writer April Thompson, of Washington, D.C., at AprilWrites.com.

Dopamine and Creating Art

The multitasking neurotransmitter dopamine is one of the brain’s natural antidepressants and plays a key role in feeling pleasure and reinforcing habits. It reaches its highest levels during the initial stages of love, observing something of beauty or creating art. A recent Drexel University study published in The Arts in Psychotherapy shows the neurological effects of drawing, coloring and simple doodling. Increased circulation in the area of the brain correlating to pleasure and reward was evident, and this dopamine-dominant response is responsible for decreasing symptoms of anxiety and increasing feelings of joy and accomplishment. Psychotherapist Doreen Meister, in Oakland, California, encourages her clients to focus on the process of creating, rather than the result. “Expressive therapies are an extension of the self-discovery continuum. I often hear, ‘I draw like a 2-yearold.’ To this I say, ‘Great! Draw like a 2-year-old!’ I believe that somewhere, many of us are told that creative expression must be a certain way. Creativity is a natural state, a human quality that we are born with, and the product of creation is not as important as the process.” Creativity from a clinical perspective allows for new emotional vantage points, distance from situations and viewing experiences through a different lens. “Bringing in creativity offers a wider palette of tools or access points, and gives us another way to understand ourselves,” says Meister. “Creativity as a life force is accessible to all of us.”

POTLUCK FOR THE 21ST CENTURY

Breaking Bread, Building Community by April Thompson

mericans are eating alone more than ever, with adults going solo for nearly half of all meals, according to consumer research consultants at the Hartman Group. Yet, fellowship-minded foodies are bucking the trend by finding new and unique ways to bring strangers, colleagues and friends together for healthy, home-cooked meals. Meal sharing not only builds community and camaraderie; it can also save time and money and minimize food waste. Eating with others can also encourage mindful consumption, a boon to physical and mental health. A number of emerging ideas and platforms from around the block to across the globe are helping singles and families young and old connect over food.

people than bars where people often meet up, and thought home is that place. Who doesn’t like dinner parties or potlucks?” says Jared Gold, co-founder of MealTribes, in Washington, D.C. Within two years, MealTribes has grown to more than 200 members that can host or join potlucks via a private Facebook group open to area residents in their 20s and 30s. To encourage participants to be fully present, the group encourages guests to leave their phones in their bags. Instead of strict food do’s and don’ts, MealTribes encourages attendees to bring a contribution that makes them proud. However, guests are discouraged from bringing alcohol in lieu of a food dish to avoid it becoming the focus of the table. “Lasting friendships and business opportunities have come from our potlucks,” says Gold. “Even skeptics have come away from events feeling like they got the best-case scenario; nice people,

homey environment, with good food and conversation.” Jay Savsani, co-founder of Meal Sharing, in Chicago, got the idea for the “Airbnb of meals” after seeking out a home-cooked dinner while backpacking in Cambodia. He was invited to a farm feast in the countryside, connecting with local hosts over great conversation and delicious food. “I returned home wanting to find a way to use technology to recreate that serendipitous moment,” says Savsani. Today, the platform uses technology to connect curious diners with affordable, homecooked meals in 150 countries. “The concept is open; we encourage hosts to make whatever they believe in,” says Savsani. “That can be a top chef serving nine-course meals or a simple spaghetti someone offers for a few bucks or even free.” Savsani says the meal becomes secondary to the deeper social interactions that can manifest through these gatherings. “We even got an inquiry from a local fire department interested in hosting meals to get to know people in the community better.”

Organically Grown Gatherings Lilia Fuquen, who directs the Food and Community project in Virginia, participates in several gatherings intended to nurture community through food. Fuquen’s project aims to bring people across the state together to document, celebrate and share traditional, contemporary and emerging foodways, initiating a deeper conversation about and the connections between food, place, culture and community. Last fall, the project convened more than 200 people around a feast celebrating indigenous foods, people and foodways in Virginia. The meal was prepared from locally

farmed and foraged ingredients representative of the diverse native culinary traditions of the region, including greens, mushrooms, wild rice and fish sourced from fields, forests and streams. On a more grassroots level, an intergenerational family potluck dinner “helps create community and a sense of family among people who often live far from blood relatives,” says Fuquen, who lives on a small farm outside Charlottesville, Virginia. The workplace can also be a great place to break bread together, says Fuquen. Her office enjoys hosting the Souper Club, where co-workers each bring a key element like salad fixings, a loaf of bread or a pot of soup to enjoy together—away from their desks. Rebecca Shaloff, a fundraising consultant in Washington, D.C., has participated in work lunch swaps, which she says promote camaraderie, new food discoveries and healthy eating. She also takes part in a closely knit monthly supper club of four young families in her neighborhood. “We all value each other’s friendship and company, but there’s something about coming together for dinner that makes us feel more like family than friends,” Shaloff says.

Trek for a Healthier Brain

Exercise stimulates feel-good neurotransmitters like dopamine and serotonin, but getting a workout in a natural setting fortifies the whole nervous system. A 2015 study published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Science led by Stanford University researchers shows that walking in nature for 90 minutes decreases activity in the subgenual prefrontal cortex, the region of the brain most affected by depression. In contrast, individuals that walked in an urban environment did not reap the same results. Another 2015 study published in the Journal of Environmental Psychology shows that nature walks improve memory and decrease anxiety in teens. The Japanese philosophy of shinrin-yoku, or “forest bathing”, woven into Japanese Shinto and Buddhist traditions, has become an important part of science-based health care in Japan. A significant 2009 study by Japanese researchers published in Environmental Health and Preventive Medicine shows that just 20 minutes of walking in the woods decreases stress hormones. Forest bathing has also been shown to speed postoperative healing, improve concentration in children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder and fortify immunity with an increased number of NK, or natural killer cells. Naturalist Melanie Choukas-Bradley, in Washington, D.C., knows about Mother Nature’s therapeutic gifts firsthand. “I participated in some of the health research both in the field and the lab during a forest bathing trip to Japan,” says the author of The Joy of Forest Bathing: Reconnect with Wild Places & Rejuvenate Your Life. “My vital signs were checked before and after shinrin-yoku walks, and in the lab my brainwaves were measured while viewing urban and forest scenes.

NATIVE INTELLIGENCE Planting an Eco-Friendly Yard

M

by Avery Mack

aintaining a grassy yard or ornamental shrubs can be time consuming and less than eco-friendly. That’s why conservation-minded gardeners are turning to lush, native landscaping as an aesthetically pleasing alternative to spartan, water-free xeriscaping. Native plants not only save water, they enhance local ecosystems by providing food and shelter for birds, bees, butterflies and wildlife. “Indigenous plants build healthy soil and retain and replenish ground water,” says Michael Fleischacker, chair of landscape architecture and environmental sciences at Delaware Valley University, in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. Accustomed to the climate and nutrients in their habitat, they don’t need the extra fertilizer required by exotic transplants. Natives are also better equipped to fend off harmful insects, reducing the need for pesticides. “When pests did show up, I used insecticidal soap and neem oil. Both are great ecofriendly remedies,” says Kimberly Button, an Orlando-based freelance journalist and author of The Everything Guide to a Healthy Home: All You Need to Protect Yourself and Your Family from Hidden Household Dangers. A genuine indigenous plant in the U.S. predates European settlement. These natives grew in the wildlands of the regions where

napalmbeach.com

they evolved and adapted over hundreds or thousands of years. However, what’s wild isn’t necessarily native. These days, the woods and forests are rife with alien species that escaped from nonnative gardens or were planted to perform some specific purpose that went awry. Kudzu, for instance, was imported from Asia and installed along roadways to prevent soil erosion. The perennial vine, which can grow up to a foot per day, has become the plague of the South, rooting out native plants and toppling trees under the sheer weight of its smothering foliage. In 2013, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency issued a report summarizing numerous studies that concluded that nonnative plants disrupt the food web and present a growing problem for “organisms that depend on native plants for food, shelter and places to rear their young.”

Natives vs. Nativars

While the harm caused by many invasive plants that evolved in a foreign habitat is welldocumented and profound, the ecological impact of plant variations derived from native species—known as cultivars or nativars—is sometimes more subtle. Cultivars have been developed to highlight specific traits, like larger blooms or longer


bloom times. They may be bred for a stronger scent, or have the scent bred out of them in pursuit of another trait, making them less enticing to pollinators and wildlife. One drawback to cultivars is what those “improved” traits can affect. “The native serviceberry (Amelanchier) has small, bright red berries birds love to eat,” Fleischacker says. “Because they add color to a winter yard or are used for wreaths and décor, cultivars were bred to produce larger berries. Birds choke on the bigger berry, unable to swallow them.” A current, multi-year research project at the Mt. Cuba Center’s native botanical gardens in Hockessin, Delaware, is seeking to determine whether certain cultivars are as attractive to insects as their native counterparts. What’s certain, say the experts: A gardener can’t go wrong with indigenous plants. “Native varieties have longer growing seasons, a decades-long lifespan and tight plant groupings to prevent weed growth,” Fleischacker says. Despite the perception by some that natives are boring, they can be showier than their cultivar cousins and also thrive in their region’s unique conditions. “I keep my yard as natural as possible to co-exist with my neighbor, the Hiawatha National Forest, and its small animals and birds,” says Monica Cady, co-founder of the Herbal Lodge and a member of the Sault Ste. Marie Chippewa tribe in Hessel, Michigan.

Going Native

Transitioning to native landscaping isn’t as daunting as it might seem. Small changes can make a difference, and local plant nurseries can assist. Some may have a staff horticulturalist to help distinguish the natives from the nativars and to steer gardeners clear of invasive, water-guzzling, nutrient-needy non-natives that will spread quickly and overwhelm the landscape. Going native isn’t an all-or-nothing proposition, says Fleischacker. “Consult a local nursery or landscaper about adding natives to the mix. There are plants that love shade or sun, dry areas or damp.” When planning, look past what’s trendy. “The ecosystem is set up to protect and promote beneficial insects and pollinators,” says Button. What was old can be new again. Connect with freelance writer Avery Mack at AveryMack@ mindspring.com.

etting kids off the couch and into the great outdoors can be a challenge when they tend to be better acquainted with the popular Angry Birds video game characters than with the real warbling ones. Unfortunately, studies show that digital devices, parental work overload and media-stoked fears of the outside world are currently making our kids naturedeprived.

The more we encourage them, the more likely they’ll discover the thrills of the natural world—and numerous studies show that they’ll then be calmer and less stressed, better able to concentrate and less likely to be obese. Kids also are more “responsive and connected” when they are talking outdoors with adults than talking indoors, according to a recent study published in the Journal of Environmental Psychology.

Yet, they have an instinctive love of the outdoors, experts agree. “When given free access to nature, children’s play follows the same patterns all around the world,” says prominent environmental educator David Sobel, author of Wild Play: Parenting Adventures in the Great Outdoors. “All kids like creating special places, going on adventures, befriending animals, following maps and paths, and so on.”

Here are some simple ideas to get started:

napalmbeach.com

Build fairy houses. In a park, forest or backyard, ask the child to find a quiet spot, like the base of a tree or under a bush, and build a tiny house using only their imagination and natural materials such as sticks, bark, grass, pebbles, feathers and pinecones. “The fun is ageless and connects you to nature in magical and memorable ways,” says Tracy Kane of Maine, whose website,

healthy kids

FairyHouses.com, offers ideas and books.

Befriend a bug. Help them look for

bugs and crawling things in the dirt and on leaves, then ask them to draw them. Back home or at the library, kids can search in guidebooks or online to learn the critters’ names and traits.

Engage in real-life tweets. Show

them how to listen carefully for bird songs and count how many different ones they hear. See if they can imitate the tweets or find words that describe them. Check out a bird-song beginner’s guide at Audubon. org/news/a-beginners-guide-common-birdsounds-and-what-they-mean.

Create mud art. “Make a batch of mud

and use it to create sculptures, paint a masterpiece or just use it to jump in and get messy with,” suggests MaryEllen Mateleska, director of education and conservation at the Mystic Aquarium, in Connecticut.

Make dolls and critters. Kids can use hibiscus or hollyhock flowers and tooth-

picks to make dolls with flowing skirts. Or they can collect leaves of different shapes and sizes and glue them together to create leafy creatures. “You can take it an extra step by inventing a story and creating a one-of-a-kind storybook,” says Mateleska.

Grow a garden. Using a kid-sized plot of

land—it can even be a big pot of dirt—give them a trowel, a watering can and easy-togrow seeds such as radishes and carrots. Not only will they get exercise, a Texas A&M University study shows gardening makes kids more likely to choose veggies for snacks.

Invent a cozy hideaway. Under the

limbs of a big tree, old blankets and pillows can be used by a child to build a “secret” hiding place, stocked with lemonade, apples and fun books.

Incorporate digital delights. Rather than competing with digital devices, integrate them into the nature experience. “A phone app like iNaturalist lets kids take

a picture and will identify the creature or plant for them,” says science teacher Jemma Smith, of The Education Hotel, a UK-based tutoring service. “Or have them take three artistic pictures of nature.”

Try geocaching. This game for older

kids requires them to use their phones as a GPS to find tiny treasure boxes that have already been hidden all over the countryside. “Most boxes have small trinkets to swap and a tiny book to sign their name,” says Smith.

Time It. Simply set the timer for an hour, open the door into the back yard and let the kids “go at it,” as does writer Attiyya Atkins, a mother of four in Pompano Beach, Florida. “Mostly it’s self-play, but I come out sometimes and teach them about nature, or we do art projects with leaves, rocks or dirt. It’s always naturally fun, and they’re pretty tired afterwards!” Ronica A. O’Hara is a Denver-based natural health writer. Connect at OHaraRonica@ gmail.com.

BRINGING UP KITTY

Get Off on the Right Paw

T

by Karen Shaw Becker

here’s nothing as endearing as a big-eyed kitten hopping sideways across the floor or curled into a small ball of fluff on our lap. Getting a new kitten started off on the right foot will ensure they grow up to be a healthy and happy companion.

a sanctuary for the family’s 1Prepare new kitten.

When bringing a new kitten (or adult cat) into their new home, it’s best to separate the new addition in a little bed-and-breakfastlike setup of their own for at least a week. Put their litter box, bedding, food and toys in their space and keep noise, confusion and foot traffic to a minimum.

2Provide warm, snuggly sleeping quarters.

Felines, especially tiny ones, like their environment warmer than what humans generally prefer. Look for bedding that hasn’t been treated with flame-retardant chemicals such as PBDE; Swedish scientists have linked the chemical, commonly found in foam, to hyperthyroidism in cats. The best choice is wool, which is naturally flame resistant.

3Consider crate training.

Most cats fight being put into a carrier because it only happens when someone’s about to take them to a place they don’t want to go to. That’s why it’s a good idea to set up a carrier for a kitten on their first day home. Entice them to enter on their own using food treats, toys and comfy bedding.

4Go slow with family introductions.

Introduce other members of the household to the new kitty one at a time. Ideally, introductions occur in a neutral location, like the living room, when the kitten ventures out to investigate.

Offer this tiny carnivore the nutrition they were born to eat.

To provide the very best start in life, feed the little one either a homemade or commercially available, nutritionally balanced, fresh food diet (preferably raw) designed for cats at all stages of life.

6

Help the kitten learn to love their personal litter box.

Most kittens can use a litter box at about four weeks. Just make sure its walls are low enough that they can hop in and out on their own. If a kitten or cat is avoiding the box, there’s likely a reason: location, type of litter or failure to clean it often enough.

7

Provide appropriate climbing and scratching surfaces.

Climbing and scratching are natural feline behaviors. Try burlap, cardboard and carpeted scratching surfaces, placed vertically and horizontally to meet all preferences. Keep the scratchers in areas where the kitten hangs out.

8Train kitty to use the scratching post.

Initially, it might help to apply catnip or attach a feather toy to make the scratching area especially appealing. Discourage any feline from scratching on inappropriate surfaces by attaching double-sided tape or inflated balloons to rugs or furniture that are off limits.

9Offer toys that bring out the feline hunter.

hunting instincts. A piece of string wrapped around the end of a stick dragged on the ground will bring out the stalker in almost any cat. So will ping-pong balls or small wads of paper flicked across the floor.

10Indulge most kittens’ love of boxes.

When cats in the wild feel threatened, they head for trees, dens or caves for safety. Domestic kitties don’t have that option, so their obsession with hiding in boxes may be an adaptation. Providing “hidey holes” may also help a kitten acclimate faster to their new home and family.

11Provide easy, safe access to the outdoors.

Indoor cats need time outside. Consider building or buying a safe, secure, outdoor enclosure (catio) for them to hang out in when the weather is nice.

adopting two kittens at the 12Consider same time.

One of the best ways to avoid many common behavioral problems is to adopt a pair of kittens. Because they crave stimulation and interaction, adopting two provides instant playmates to occupy each other’s time.

I

n last month’s Natural Awakenings magazine, I wrote a detailed article on osteoporosis for men and women, and its’ treatments of diet, exercise, and medicines. A major part of the treatment of osteoporosis is getting calcium in your diet. Since calcium is so important for so many reasons, I will devote this entire article on it. Calcium is the major mineral of bone. With it, you grow good, strong, healthy bones, as well as other body parts and functions. Without it, you can develop a number of disease conditions, including osteopenia, osteoporosis, rickets, and dysfunctional nerve and heart conditions. Adding calcium to one’s diet can help decrease blood pressure in hypertension, prevent colorectal polyps (precursors to colon cancer), and reduce premenstrual syndrome (PMS) symptoms.

CONSCIOUS TREE TRIMMING Experienced, Licensed and Insured

Trees Big or Small - We Do Them All!

Our calcium levels are often deficient for several reasons: calcium is needed in increased amounts during growth, new bone formation, pregnancy and breast feeding; calcium absorption in our intestines is not efficient (only about 30%); and the body excretes a certain amount of calcium in the stool and urine every day to maintain its’ internal chemical balance (homeostasis). Diets high in fiber, phytates (found in teas), phosphorus (sodas and some canned foods), protein (meats), and sodium (salt) all decrease our calcium levels. Calcium interferes with the absorption of: salicylates (i.e, aspirin), bisphosphonates, fluoride, tetracyclines, atenolol, and iron. Most people with hyperthyroidism, sarcoidosis or certain kidney diseases should not take calcium supplements. Too much calcium, over 4,000 mg/day, can result in toxicity, kidney damage, heart arrhythmias, etc. Calcium needs an acidic environment in the stomach to be absorbed; so, contrary to the ads, taking the antacids is counterproductive. Calcium absorption is best with: vitamin D (400-800 IU’s/day), magnesium (500 mg/day), and zinc (50-100 mg/day). Take these all together, daily.

TENTION with Margaret Ann Lembo. The use of multiple gemstones for particular reasons enhances the intentions you establish when you create a grid, amulet, or charm bag. All three of these tools are simply combinations of crystals put together to improve or amplify your intention. The grids are typically geometric in nature. An amulet is often a combination of stones in a jewelry or pendant-type setting. The charm bag is simply a bag of stones that are gathered together for a predetermined outcome. During this class, we will build a tabletop grid and each participant will make a charm bag and an amulet. A pouch, a pendant cage for your amulet, and some gemstones are included in this workshop. 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM, $127 prepayment required, non-refundable. Maximum 25. at The Crystal Garden, 2610 N.

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