letterfrompublisher “It isn’t enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it. And it isn’t enough to believe in it. One must work at it.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt A new year is upon us and there’s a resolution-driven energy in the air to abandon bad habits and jumpstart new fitness routines. Yet, I can’t help but notice that this optimistic buzz seems to be up against regular reminders that we live in a complicated and conflicted world, where universal peace is still a collective dream. What would happen if everyone made peace a part of their New Year’s intentions? What if we took time to find peace in the everyday moments that we often zoom past—the warmth of sunlight on a cold day, the embrace of a child before bed, the release from a deep exhale? When faced with challenges, we can make peace by replacing power with love and we can strive to give unconditionally. When we live in the moment, we can be more mindful and therefore more aware that our actions can lead us to peace—or away from it. Find peace, make peace, keep peace. It sounds so simple, yet it’s so very challenging, and as Eleanor Roosevelt said, we must work at it. Will you join me on this peacekeeping mission? With our elevated levels of inner peace, we can embrace this year's energy for renewed wellness. From the local newsbriefs, healthbriefs, tips for going green, to the amazing directory of local practitioners, this first annual Natural Awakenings Natural Living Directory offers progressive yet accessible guidance for a healthy 2016.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction at Stillpoint

S

tress Less Las Vegas brings Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MSBR) to participants every Thursday night from January 21 to March 10 with Leanne Earnest, Ph.D., at the Stillpoint Center, in Las Vegas. She states, “Meditation practice is intended to bring about transformation and change through the cultivation of present moment awareness as it is experienced through the senses. It is a departure from our chronic thinking, comparing and judging mind. With practice, meditators become aware of the changing flow of experience as it occurs and gain an enhanced appreciation of experience recognizing the impermanent nature of all things.” Participants in MBSR engage in experiential learning through multiple modalities of mindfulness practice, and by the end of eight weeks, can create a personalized practice from the modalities that resonate with them. “Our thoughts, beliefs and attitudes greatly affect our ability to manage common stressors,” says Earnest. “Mindfulness meditation practice helps us learn to be more responsive, rather than reactive to situations. Practitioners cultivate awareness of experience in a nonjudgmental and open-hearted manner.” Location: 8072 W. Sahara Ave., Ste. D, Las Vegas. For more information, call 702562-1285, email DrEarnest@StressLessLasVegas.com or visit, StressLessLasVegas. com. See ad, page 17.

Feel Young, Live Long

R

esearch published in the Journal of the American Medical Association has found people that feel younger than their years have a lower incidence of earlier mortality. Conducted by scientists from the UK’s University College London, the research analyzed data from 6,489 people and measured their self-perceived age with the question, “How old do you feel you are?” Then, over more than eight years, the scientists tracked the number of deaths from all causes. Almost 70 percent of those that averaged a little over 65 reported feeling at least three years younger than their chronological age. Only a quarter said they felt close to their age and about 5 percent said they felt more than a year older. The research found that deaths among those that felt younger were 14 percent, while more than 18 percent of those who felt their own age and more than 24 percent of people that felt older died during the follow-up period. The research further found that individuals that felt at least three years younger were less likely to die later from heart disease or cancer. These relationships prevailed even when other health and lifestyle factors were eliminated. Co-author Andrew Steptoe, Ph.D., says, “We expected to find an association between self-perceived age and mortality. We didn’t expect that the relationship would still be present even when wealth, other socio-demographic indicators, health, depression, mobility and other factors were taken into account.”

wo common vitamins are making headlines in medical research. A recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that supplementation with vitamin E may reduce the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. The five-year study followed 561 Alzheimer’s patients and included a placebo and the pharmaceutical drug memantine. Those that took vitamin E had a reduced progression of the disease compared to both a placebo group and the memantine group. Also, researchers from the Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center found that vitamin D supplementation reduced the risk of falling for elderly folks. The study had a vitamin D supplement or a placebo delivered through a Meals-on-Wheels program to 68 people. The subjects were given blood tests and their history of falls was measured. Diaries revealed that the individuals taking vitamin D supplements fell less than half the number of times than the placebo group.

esearchers from Brigham Young University and Cornell University have determined that simply moving recess to precede lunch significantly increases students’ consumption of fruits and vegetables at lunch. The researchers tested first- through sixth-graders from seven schools in Utah for 14 school days. In three schools, recess was switched from after to just before lunch. In the other four schools, recess still followed lunch. Published in the journal Preventative Medicine, research found that when recess was just prior to lunch, students ate 54 percent more fruits and vegetables. Moving recess also resulted in 45 percent more kids eating at least one serving of fruits and vegetables during school-provided lunches. The researchers concluded that results show the benefits of holding recess before lunch and suggest that if more schools did this, there would be significant increases in fruit and vegetable consumption, particularly among students that eat school lunch as part of the National School Lunch Program.

Scientists Urge Ban on Non-Stick Pan Coatings

A

new paper published in the Environmental Health Perspectives journal warns of the continued health risks of chemicals used for non-stick pan coatings and water repellents on clothing. The chemical is being found in some municipalities’ drinking water. More than 200 scientists signed the statement, which presents the dangers of poly- and perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). These chemicals are persistently used as pan coatings, despite more than a decade of research showing associations with liver toxicity, neurological disorders, cancers of different organs and types, and heart conditions. The paper noted that many manufacturers have discontinued long-chain PFAS production and substituted shorter-chain PFAS. The scientists caution that these shorter-chain PFAS may not effectively reduce PFAS exposure because more has to be used to achieve the same effectiveness, maintaining PFAS in the environment with exposure levels relatively unchanged. It calls for scientists, governments, chemical manufacturers and consumer product manufacturers to participate in halting all PFAS production.

Autism Spurs Creative Thinking

T

he UK’s University of East Anglia and the University of Stirling conducted a study of individuals with autistic traits among 312 people recruited through social media, including 75 diagnosed with autistic spectrum disorder. Each of the subjects completed a series of creativity tests in which they determined uses of mundane objects. Published in the Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, the study found that while the autistic people chose fewer uses for each object, their choices were significantly more original and creative. The subjects developed a greater range of “divergent thinking”. Martin Doherty, Ph.D., co-author of the study, confirms, “People with high autistic traits can have less quantity, but greater quality of creative ideas. They are typically considered to be more rigid in their thinking, so the fact that the ideas they have are more unusual or rare is surprising. This difference may have positive implications for creative problem solving.” The researchers found that while the average person will utilize simple mental strategies to produce more obvious answers first, autistic people tend to first utilize more demanding strategies during their processing, thus producing the more creative result.

Sunlight Reduces Risk of Pancreatic Cancer

R

esearchers from the University of California (UC) School of Medicine at San Diego have determined that regions with greater exposure to ultraviolet (UV)-B radiation from the sun and reduced cloud cover have significantly lower incidence of pancreatic cancer. In an analysis of global rates of the disease, the research, published in the Journal of Steroid Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, demonstrated that areas with more sunshine had only one-sixth of the pancreatic cancer rates of areas with less sunshine. The farther from the equator, the less is the exposure to UV-B radiation, leading to less body production of vitamin D. Study author Cedric F. Garland, doctor of public health, a UC professor and member of the UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center, says, “If you’re living at a high latitude or in a place with a lot of heavy cloud cover, you can’t make vitamin D most of the year, which results in a higher-than-normal risk of getting pancreatic cancer.” According to World Cancer Research Fund International, 338,000 new cases of pancreatic cancer are diagnosed annually, and it is the seventh most lethal form of cancer.

actionalert No-Choice Vaccines California Mandates Shots for Childcare Workers

After passing the state House and Senate, California Senate Bill 792 was approved by Governor Jerry Brown on October 11. The unprecedented law mandates vaccines for adult childcare workers and volunteers, including all individuals working in private and public school early childhood education programs, with no religious exemptions permitted. SB 792 reads, “Commencing September 1, 2016, a person shall not be employed or volunteer at a day care center if he or she has not been immunized against influenza, pertussis [whooping cough] and measles. Each employee and volunteer shall receive an influenza vaccination between August 1 and December 1 of each year.” The same regulations also apply to family home day care workers and volunteers. Failure to comply with these requirements can result in a loss of licensing for the facility/center. For more information, visit Tinyurl. com/californiasb792.

Fish Folly

Marine Life Drops by Half since 1970 The nonprofit World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and the Zoological Society of London have jointly determined that industrial-scale overfishing, pollution and climate change have killed half of all marine life over the last 40 years. The Living Blue Planet Report cites that species essential to the global food supply are among the hardest hit, partially due to humans catching them faster than they can reproduce. Large swaths of coral reefs, mangroves and sea grasses have also died, further decimating fish populations. Statistics show that the family of fish that includes tuna and mackerel has declined by 75 percent since 1970. The number of species is also declining; a quarter of all shark and ray species face extinction. Half of all coral has already disappeared, and the rest will vanish by 2050 if temperatures continue to rise at current rates. “Coral reefs occupy less than 1 percent of the ocean surface, but they harbor a third of ocean species,” says French biologist Gilles Boeuf. The WWF report argues that protected global ocean area should be tripled by 2020 and fish retailers should source from companies that follow certified best practice standards.

Drive-Thru Vegan

Amy’s Opens Organic Fast Food Restaurant California now hosts the nation’s first Amy’s Organic Drive-Thru restaurant, in Rohnert Park, with a vegetarian menu sporting veggie burgers, salads and dishes served in both regular and vegan varieties. Ingredients are sustainably grown and GMO-free (no genetically modified ingredients). The company’s signature frozen pizzas have been popular for years in health food and grocery stores nationwide, and now Amy’s first restaurant is serving them hot, with toppings ranging from spinach and diced tomatoes to a choice of mozzarella cheese or vegan “cheeze”. While some other fast food restaurants import almost all of their products from factory farming operations and give nothing back to the community, Amy’s DriveThru grows produce sustainably on its own roof. Amy’s Kitchen, a family-owned, privately held organic frozen food company, reportedly pays workers a living wage with health benefits. On the inaugural restaurant’s popularity, Manager Paul Schiefer remarks, “It’s given us a lot of hope that this is a concept that works.” 14

OM MBA

Eastern Practices Penetrate U.S. Corporate Culture Aetna CEO Mark Bertolini has introduced free yoga and meditation classes for employees of the health insurance giant, and more than 13,000 are participating. On average, they experienced a 28 percent reduction in their stress levels, 20 percent improvement in sleep quality, 19 percent reduction in pain and 62 minutes per week of extra productivity. “We have this groundswell inside the company of people wanting to take the classes,” says Bertolini. “It’s been pretty magical.” He sells the same classes to businesses that contract with Aetna. Google now offers emotional intelligence courses for employees and General Mills has a meditation room in every building on its Minneapolis corporate campus. Even conservative Wall Street firms such as Goldman Sachs are teaching meditation on the job. Some programs, from yoga sessions for factory workers to guided meditations for executives, are intended to improve overall well-being; others to increase focus and productivity. Most aim to make employees more presentminded, less prone to make rash decisions and generally nicer people to work with. More than 21 million individuals now practice yoga nationwide, double the number from a decade ago, and nearly as many meditate, according to the National Institutes of Health.

Doctor’s Orders

GMO Labeling Endorsed by Physicians Even as the federal government pursues H.R. 1599, aka the “Deny Americans the Right to Know” (DARK) act, mainstream medicine is urging the government to abandon its resistance to GMO (genetically modified organism) labeling. They are bolstered by a recent announcement by the World Health Organization that glyphosate (the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup weed killer) is probably carcinogenic in humans. The genetic engineering ends up making crops resistant to the herbicide so more must be applied. According to contributing doctors from Harvard, Mt. Sinai Medical Center and the University of Wisconsin reporting in the New England Journal of Medicine, “GM crops are now the agricultural products most heavily treated with herbicides, and two of these herbicides may pose risks of cancer.” A recent notice in the same journal, “GMOs, Herbicides and Public Health,” reports: “The application of biotechnology to agriculture has been rapid and aggressive. The vast majority of the soy and [feed] corn grown in the United States are now genetically engineered. Foods produced from GM crops have become ubiquitous.” Sixty-four countries, including Russia and China, have already adopted transparency in labeling laws, but U.S. Big Food and Big Ag lobbyists have stonewalled efforts domestically.

Sci-Fi Solution

Beaming Solar Power to Earth from Space A great deal of solar power falls on our planet, but a lot more misses us and goes off into space. Scientists at JAXA, Japan’s space administration, have made a major breakthrough in accurate wireless power transmission on Earth that bodes well for solar space technology. The team beamed 1.8 kilowatts of power, enough to power an electric tea kettle, more than 50 meters to a small receiver without any wires whatsoever. The researchers were able to accomplish this task by first converting the electrical energy to microwaves, and then beaming them to a remote receiver before converting them back into electrons. The program’s goal is to harness a constant supply of solar energy directly from space using orbital solar farms, and then beam that energy for use on Earth. Solar power generation in space has many advantages over current technology, including the constant availability of energy regardless of the weather or time of day. Source: Global.jaxa.jp

Specializing in Preventative Care

T

he way doctors treat patients and prescribe medications has changed dramatically over the past fifty years. We have made great progress in saving lives from infectious disease and accidents, but we have seen a dramatic rise in obesity and chronic diseases, such as type 2 diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease. Heart disease is still our number one killer, with cancer not far behind. Although our medical costs have skyrocketed and are now the highest in the world, the World Health Organization ranks us as only 38th in healthcare quality. We have the lowest healthy life expectancy of any industrialized country. Despite the use of state-of-the-art medical equipment and complex procedures performed on patients in the US every year, modern conventional medicine has not solved the health crisis in this country. Many of the chronic conditions which currently afflict us are a result of our diet. Doctors are trained to prescribe medications to patients, who believe that a pill will fix their ills. Patients don’t always realize that there may be a tremendous cost to this “easy” fix. They trust that the doctor is doing her best. Their insurance pays for their medications, and they often don’t think about side effects. In this manner, patients often end up on life-long medications. Because the blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar values now appear “normal”, they believe the problem is under control. Unfortunately, there are often long-term consequences from taking medications, which are rarely as effective as promised. Many of the foods we eat, which we think of as entirely normal, did not exist a hundred years ago, and are not found in nature. Food manufacturers are producing increasingly “delicious” foods by adding salt, fat, sugar, and other processed, unnatural ingredients. These foods don’t truly nourish the

body, yet leave us wanting more. Our bodies are hungry for real nourishment, and we often don’t realize that we are dependent. Our diets have changed so rapidly, that our genes have not yet caught up to deal with these new “foods”. Our bodies were designed to deal with scarcity, but now have to deal with an over-abundance of often unhealthy food. We really are what we eat! Every single meal we eat contributes either to strengthening or weakening our bodies. Fortunately, the body has a remarkable ability to heal itself, given the chance. There is a simple way to stop and even cure many chronic diseases, including heart disease, obesity, type 2 diabetes, autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, some cancers, acid reflux, and others. Most doctors receive very little training in nutrition, and are simply unaware of the power of nutritious food in stopping or curing chronic diseases. At Dr. Allen Wellness & Medical Center, we specialize in preventative care with the emphasis on treating and reversing diseases through a whole foods approach and nutrition science. We believe in practicing healthcare, rather than conventional “sick care”. We don’t think the symptoms of one’s condition should be controlled with medication alone, without addressing, and ultimately curing the cause of the illness when possible. While we believe that medications do have an important role at the right time and under the right circumstances, our main focus is to restore, improve, and maintain our patients’ vibrant health. We achieve this by creating a unique partnership and trust between doctor and patient. Exceptional communication, along with nutritional excellence and lifestyle modification create the foundation for lifelong, superior health while reducing and eventually eliminating unnecessary medications.

Soul-Based Living Ignites World Peace by Jason Nelson

T

here is a voice speaking within us. Sometimes we hear it and keep it to ourselves, and other times we express it. Have you heard it? This voice is our soul, and what our soul desires most is world peace. World peace is not a fluffy idea. It takes determination to persevere through life challenges and choose love every time. LOVE, ultimate, unconditional love is the nature of our soul and the only path to true, everlasting peace. Then, the big question is how do we live from our soul, tap into its gifts and use them to walk the path to peace? Luckily, we are connected to our soul already and are tapped into its innate gifts. We were born with our soul’s four gifts of manifestation, intuition, healing and mediumship. We are connected to them every moment. Even though it may not feel like it, everyone is using them. If this is true, then why doesn’t everyone use the gifts of the soul to create world peace? By bringing our awareness more into alignment with what is already happening, we can emphasize the impact of our soul’s powers and use them practically in everyday life. As we align our awareness more with our soul’s love, we bring forth

answers and solutions to our most common questions, questions that have left many of us at times feeling hopeless and distraught. Soul-based living is our answer to feeling peace, fulfillment and purpose in every area of life, and this process ignites world peace one person at a time. Our soul’s nature is love. When we choose love over blaming and judging, choose love over reacting and controlling, choose love over forcing and impatience. . .these are the times we are choosing to live from our soul. This is how Soul-Based Living Ignites World Peace! Imagine what it would be like if everyone chose love. We would have world peace. World peace is in our hands! In our earlier years, we were nurtured both with and without love. Conditional love creates limitations of the mind and emotion. The life we are meant to live is through getting to the root of our discomforts and releasing limitations and old patterns to create a new life story. We are able to do this by working with a professional that knows how to help us transform ourselves at the root level. Find a group program, coach, therapist or practitioner who can facilitate these deeper transformations.

When a great match is found, stick with them because excellent facilitators are harder to come by. Discern a practitioner by the results felt and seen after a few sessions. The healing and wisdom provided through mediumship gives us a huge advantage to lead a more soul-based life. The ability to have a two-way conversation with our spiritual guidance is within every person to easily enhance. The type of mediumship I use most often is voice channeling. I talk with my spiritual guidance on a daily basis about every topic in my life. Spirit writes my books, channels my workshop techniques, advises me on health, counsels me on relationships, gives me the step-be-step plans for business. The guidance of spirit has co-created my life with me, beyond my wildest dreams! Our four intuitive qualities of feeling, hearing, seeing and knowing contribute greatly to soul-based living by being our inner compass. Most commonly they are thought of as gut feelings, thoughts that create a peak awareness, prophetic visions of something happening, and an instant knowing about people and situations. Together with mediumship, intuition provides clear, loving direction as we reveal and manifest our life purpose. Our soul is calling us to love more so that together we can ignite world peace!

Pamper Your Skin With Natural The Awakenings Best Nature Has To Offer Advanced Healing Skin Cream

Therapeutic Qualities

Natural Awakenings Advanced Healing Skin Cream combines botanicals and a unique blend of essential oils for a deep moisturizing therapy. It soothes and relieves dry, itchy or cracked skin quickly while restoring moisture and provides ultra-hydration protection and soothing comfort to wounds, sores, cuts and burns. Manuka Honey also relieves the pain and itch of psoriasis and other skin conditions. Besides its potent antibacterial properties, honey is also naturally extremely acidic, and that will eliminate organisms that decides to grow there.

Our Skin Cream Contains: Essential Oil of Rosehip Peppermint Nutmeg, Clove Black Pepper Lavender

Manuka Honey

Oat Flour Aloe Vera Flower Essence of Self-Heal Oak Sunflower Pine Vervain There are no parabens, dyes or fragrances, and no animal products or testing.

Hydration is a Must

The skin has a water content of 10 percent to 30 percent, which gives it a soft, smooth and flexible texture. The water comes from the atmosphere, the underlying layers of skin and perspiration. Oil produced by skin glands and fatty substances produced by skin cells act as natural moisturizers, allowing the surface to seal in water. Natural Awakenings Advanced Healing Skin Cream, applied after a shower or bath as daily maintenance, will improve the appearance of skin and heal unwanted conditions. Natural Awakenings Advanced Healing Skin Cream also combines pure botanicals and a unique blend of essential oils for a deep moisturizing therapy.

Satisfied Customer

}

Natural Awakenings Advanced Healing Skin Cream is a wonderful product. The skin cream goes on smooth and absorbs into the skin quickly - it is not “greasy”. I have been plagued with dry skin around my ears, belly button and scalp for over 20 years and this product

has healed those areas in just 3 days of use. The Manuka Honey that is in this product, I was told repairs damaged skin - now I am a believer!!! I continue to use this skin cream to keep my skin soft. I have to mention the product has a wonderful aroma, like peppermint, and when applying the cream one can feel a slight warming sensation and I know it is working into the pores to do it’s work! Glad I tried this product! ~ Jim

The cold, damp winter days are upon us. Don’t let chapped or dry, flaky skin get in the way of your daily life. Natural Awakenings Advanced Healing Skin Cream, a soothing therapeutic balm made with exclusive Manuka Honey from New Zealand, is the ultimate skin moisturizer for everyone in your family. Order one for the office, too!

Restore Your Skin to Natural Youthful Beauty You’ll love Natural Awakenings’ therapeutic cream’s clean, fresh botanical fragrance. Discover what our amazing skin cream can do: • Provides Ultra-Hydration of Skin • Enhances Anti-Aging and Skin Renewal • Soothes Dry, Itchy, Cracked Skin • Relieves Most Burns Including Sunburn • Comforts Wounds and Sores MANUKA HONEY is produced by bees that pollinate New Zealand’s Manuka bush. Advocates tout its antibacterial properties.

What Is Manuka Honey?

Manuka Honey is gathered in the wild back country of New Zealand from the native Manuka tree (Leptospermum scoparium). The bees don’t use the pollen from a variety of other flowers or plants, so the content of the honey is very consistent. A 2013 study in the European Journal of Medical Research used Active Manuka Honey under dressings on postoperative wounds for an 85 percent success rate in clearing up infections, compared with 50 percent for normal antibiotic creams.

Key Signs We’re Approaching a Defining Moment by Dennis Merritt Jones

O

ur authentic self is constantly trying to get our attention so it may be more fully expressed. When we set our intention to genuinely evolve, we naturally begin to pay attention and see how redefining moments appear as needed. They are drawn to us sequentially to support us in the process of staying the course on our pilgrimage, each one a perfectly aligned portal in space and time, opening and closing, creating whatever experience is required to guide us to heightened awareness of our authentic self. While the possible circumstances that preclude such a moment are limitless, there are key signals to watch for. When they pop up, it helps immensely to stay engaged in the moment, rather than zipping past them on to another distraction. Rather, consider ways in which this might prove to be a pivotal point forward in our life journey. n Moments that challenge our ego and moments that our ego challenges us n Unexpected events n Times of significant loss n First-time experiences n Discontentment n Disappointment n Experiencing someone or something that instantly inspires us to grow n Birth of a loved one n Death of a loved one Personal growth and evolution can be motivated by either inspiration or desperation. Both may prompt us to

24 Greater Las Vegas

ask big questions of ourselves and the universe that cause us to dig deep. The deeper we dig, the closer we come to merging with our truest self. We know the answers to such questions are correct because they will lead to actions that honor life—like harming no one, including ourself—and affirm the presence of a prevailing power for good that lies within; a power that guides, protects and sustains us. Satisfying answers seek only the highest and best of us and bless all. They connect our mind, heart and soul, moving us forward on the path of wholeness as a fulfilled and joyfully self-expressed person. When we are impelled to ask an important question of our self and the universe, don’t rush the process and are willing to embrace the answer we receive, it pushes a reset button as to what defines us. It brings us an enhanced sense of authentic wholeness. The lesson is that when redefining moments appear, we must be open and prepared to go where we had no plans of going—because that’s where our bliss awaits us. Dennis Merritt Jones, D.D., is the author of Your (Re)Defining Moments, the source of this essay. He has contributed to the human potential movement and field of spirituality as a minister, teacher, coach and lecturer for 30 years. Learn more at DennisMerrittJones.com.

The Right Vet for Your Pet

Animals Thrive with Gentle, Safe and Natural Approaches by Shawn Messonnier

associated with multiple drug doses. A team approach is expected. A holistic practice is a team effort, and the family doctor will suggest options for care, helping an owner decide on the best therapies for each pet. A fuller range of options is available. While holistic vets prefer a more natural approach, they know that if necessary, conventional therapies can sometimes be an appropriate complement if they follow holistic principles, which means infrequent use of low-dose medications and only when absolutely needed. In general, most conditions can be treated successfully without drug therapy, extending the health and life of the patient and reducing medical costs. Gentler anesthesia means quicker recovery. A naturally balanced and gentler approach means less drugging if anesthesia becomes necessary, close monitoring of an anesthetized pet, a smooth and quick recovery for prompt discharge from the hospital and natural forms of follow-up treatment to control post-operative pain and inflammation. New hope rises for the hopeless. Many pets are brought to holistic doctors after conventional care has failed to help them. Some have been turned away by practitioners of conventional medicine because their cases are diagnosed as “hopeless”. Holistic vets and pet parents alike experience considerable satisfaction in helping to give a joyful pet a whole new lease on life. Shawn Messonnier, a doctor of veterinary medicine practicing in Plano, TX, is the award-winning author of The Natural Health Bible for Dogs & Cats and Unexpected Miracles: Hope and Holistic Healing for Pets.

P

et parents have many criteria to consider when choosing a healthcare provider for their prized pet, and among the most vital is trying to find a doctor that uses holistic therapies, because the advantages are many. Wellness care is more than vaccines. While many conventional vets consider giving vaccines and flea medications to all of their patients to be their best form of wellness care, holistic vets know these aren’t always necessary and can potentially be harmful. Instead, true wellness care involves careful consideration of proper diet, blood titer testing instead of vaccines, natural parasite control when appropriate and a heavy dose of diagnostic testing (blood, urine, fecal) to monitor organ function, check for parasites, screen for disorders of the urogenital system, liver and pancreas and early screening for cancer and other inflammatory conditions. There’s also a full physical check for common diseases like dental and heart disease and tumors. Individualized prescriptions for a proper diet and supplements to maintain health are big reasons many owners prefer a holistic vet. Natural treatments include disease prevention. Many pets treated via a more natural approach have an easier experience with occasional illness than those that don’t enjoy this specialized care. Natural therapies can quickly restore an ill pet to his homeostatic balance without the side effects often

ody Resonance Myofascial Wellness Center (BRMWC), holistic wellness facility in Las Vegas that specializes in the John Barnes F. Barnes Myofascial Release Approach (MFR). Each person will have a unique experience and individualized care in every session due to everyone's fascia and traumas being different. "We don't just treat the label/diagnosis," says owner Rowena Cua. "We find the cause and treat the whole body. We are unique, we don't have protocols like traditional medicine/physical/massage therapy." BRMWC offer sessions on the amethyst BioMat, retail self care tools, sell doTERRA essential oils and conduct free classes on the benefits of essential oils. According to Cua, "MFR is the missing link to health care and other forms of healing modalities. It is a safe and very effective, hands-on technique that involves applying gentle, sustained pressure into the myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. Trauma, inflammatory responses and/or surgical procedures create myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain-sensitive structures that do not show up in many of the standard tests, such as X-rays, myelograms, CAT scans and electromyography." Why not experience something different and give your body what it needs? "We have highly skilled Manual therapists to help facilitate your healing process," says Cua. "We are passionate about adding value to people's lives, helping them be empowered on their healing journey and assisting to release physical and emotional trauma.” See ad, page 41.

r. Patricia Beckstead, DC, states, “I don’t want others to struggle or suffer the way that I did or experience what I went through on a physical or emotional level. My current practice was born out of that time in my life. As a holistic physician, my goal is to inspire others to lead healthier and happier lives through my books, clinical coaching practice and lectures.” She holds Bachelor of Science degree in human biology an a Doctor of Chiropractic Medicine degree from the University of Health Sciences, in Illinois. She started her practice in Henderson in 1994. Beckstead believes that for healthy aging, an integrative medicine, or mind, body, spirit approach, to physician-provided coaching, is best. She says, “Our goal is to assist you in maximizing your health, happiness and longevity. We combine holistic full-body awareness techniques and nutritional supplements with safe, natural anti-aging hormone replacement therapy. No matter what your age or gender, we provide education, information, natural hormones, botanicals and supplements, mind-body therapies and the latest research on lifestyle modifications to help you replace the hormones you lose daily due to stress and aging, while gaining lost energy and vitality through a healthy ageless body.” She notes, “Thanks to the convenience of technology and research into health, wellness and longevity, we are living longer on this planet. As a result, we must prepare and enable our bodies and minds to live a greater quality of life during those added years; otherwise, what’s the point?’ Beckstead says that her clients feel confident and safe with a physician that partners with them to offer empowerment, hope and confidence as they work together toward a solid foundation of health and wellness which will flourish into an optimum state of anti-aging vitality. she says, “They feel deeply connected to my purpose and passion as I guide them through a comprehensive, life-enhancing experience in natural medicine, sharing my heart, knowledge and experience on a deeply personal level rarely found in health care today.” See ad, page 16.

owena Cua, owner of Body Resonance Myofascial Wellness Center, explains that the Amethyst BioMat, a registered medical device with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, is a pad which lies on top of a massage table or home mattress. “It converts electricity, through a computerized control panel produced with Texas Instruments parts, into farinfrared rays (FIR), nature’s invisible light. FIR was discovered by NASA to be the safest, most beneficial light wave. It penetrates six to eight inches into the innermost recesses of the body, stimulating healing and regeneration of nerves and muscle tissue layers. “The Amethyst BioMat also produces negative ions, nature’s energizer, which deliver a molecular level massage. This accelerates and deepens all healing and cleansing processes. It balances pH by decreasing acidity and is considered the “master power switch” which activates the body’s entire cellular communication system, making every body function work better!” Cua explains that these two components are transferred through amethyst quartz channels which cover the entire Amethyst BioMat’s surface. “It is known to be a powerful detoxifier, assisting in releasing its user from addictions such as alcohol, food and substance abuse, as well as hangovers and toxic residues. This technology is used in spas and professional practitioner's offices all over the world,” says Cua. “Physical therapists, chiropractors and acupuncturists are realizing the benefits for their clients. Boeing and Microsoft have placed them in their buildings for employees to use. Benefits of the Amethyst BioMat include: reduces stress and fatigue; relieves anxiety and promotes relaxation; improves sleep patterns by inducing deep delta state of relaxation; reduces inflammation; eases joint pain and stiffness; provides warm, soothing pain relief; eliminates toxins in the body; increases blood circulation; alleviates migraines and tension headaches; reduces allergy symptoms; boosts energy and vitality; rejuvenates skin and cellular function; improves immune system function; improves cardiovascular health; burns calories and controls weight; and improves muscle tone and skin quality. Cua says, “We don't just treat symptoms, we find the cause. The Amethyst BioMat is great in conjunction with your myofascial release treatments, and will be an added benefit to your healing process.” All sessions include listening to guided meditations. The first 15-minute session is free with an MFR consultation. Prices range from $15 and up. See ad, page 41.

I am drawn to the wellness industry, and believe in the benefit of a healthy lifestyle and preventive care. Massage has proven to be greatly beneficial in my own life, and I love being able to provide this service in my community,” says McClure. She says, “Using the traditional techniques of yoga fused with modern science, I facilitate individuals on their path to wholeness and healing. I come alive when I see a client connect body and breath, reacquainting themselves with their truest self and finding that deepest element of healing. We all have everything we need deep inside to be healthy, happy and free. When we slow down and quiet down, we can reconnect with those qualities and begin to make the needed changes that support our healing journey.” Cuglietta notes that stress and anxiety are an underlying current in all health conditions and many life situations, and says, “My trauma-sensitive classes and clinics are designed to meet the client where they are, customizing their experience to create wellness programs that support them on all levels of healing.

ased in Henderson, Infinite Reconnect is a healing and wellness practice owned by Ana Clavell, a Reconnective Healing Foundational Practitioner, Reconnection certified practitioner, certified professional life coach/spiritual coach and certified conflict mediator and conflict resolution coach with the Clark County Justice Department. She says, “We empower our clients to take charge of their own health and overcome the conflict that is holding them back from healing. It’s a hands-off approach to healing, and no therapies, modalities or diagnosing are used—too often, we end up believing blindly in a diagnosis or that a problem has no solution, and typically that is because we have been conditioned to think that only other people have the answers and the cure to what ails us, when in truth the answer is always within.” Infinite Reconnect specializes in helping restore optimum health and wellbeing through the use of science-validated Reconnective Healing, developed by Dr. Eric Pearl which is at the forefront of the emerging energy healthcare field, and the Reconnection, an energy process that can enable healing in all levels while accelerating personal evolution and DNA restoration. “In a complimentary manner, we also work toward resolving the stumbling blocks and issues that lie at the core of conflicts using conflict resolution coaching techniques and conflict mediation for both court-mandated and community cases, and spiritual coaching to help overcome end-of-life crises and other conflicts of a spiritual nature, both internal and external. She states that, facilitated by the practitioner, Reconnective Healing works by direct energy exchange between the client and the energy around us. “As both energies meet, it often creates an unblocking: whatever was holding back healing suddenly changes or gets removed. The Reconnection has all the benefits of Reconnective Healing at an enhanced level because it speeds up evolution, repairs DNA and reconnects the meridians of the body to the ley lines of the planet and the energy grid of the universe. While Reconnective Healing can be more than once, the Reconnection is only done once in a lifetime.” In addition, Clavell says, “We facilitate Reconnective Healing and coaching at a distance, which means a client can remain in the comfort of their own home during their session to ease any stress if circumstances prevent them from traveling. Reconnective Healing can be used with adults and children alike, and is also beneficial to animals, plants and the environment.” See ad, page 34.

Other modalities include ThetaHealing and meditative guided visualizations with Reiki. Her company, Intentional Healings, was founded in 2013 as an educational healing center. Friedman is also known for her weekly Got Healing Radio show. Intentional Healings brings an inspirational alternative healing approach to live life from a place of higher conscious thinking; soul-based living connecting the mind, body, and spirit as one. Friedman assists people in releasing their limitations by recognizing that they are all divine beings. Friedman’s workshops, seminars, and retreats help break free from the past and show how to trust and move deeper into their soul's alignment. “My passion runs deep, supporting stretching of the imagination to see how to live drama­and chaos­free with minimal distractions, changing everything around you,” says Friedman. “How would you like to see more clearly and raise your frequency to release the pain and baggage that holds you back from your greatest potential? The ability to rely on your intuition is one of the greatest gifts in life, and students learn how to expand their awareness and change their limited perceptions of themselves to manifest their soul's passionate creations!” Intentional Healings services include: Reiki sessions with chakra balancing for mind/body/soul alignment, home and office energy clearings and blessings, meditations and guided visualizations to balance the emotional, mental, physical and spiritual body, intuitive healing, Reiki certifications, empowerment workshops, and retreats.

hristine Essex has been in private practice since 1999 and Luminosity Wellness Center opened in 2112 in Las Vegas. She holds a bachelor’s degree in clinical hypnotherapy and is a trainer of NeuroLinguistic Programming, mental emotional release and forensic hypnosis. Also an author and speaker, Essex is a certified mind, body, medicine facilitator, parenting facilitator and trainer and teen leadership facilitator. Luminosity Wellness Center offers holistic professionals a place to practice what they love. It serves as a community of entrepreneurs starting their businesses. “Together, we offer individuals solutions to life's challenges through education and experience.” Essex believes people can't choose what's best for them unless they know their options. In 2016 Luminosity is conducting a study, The Total Concept, that addresses the hypothesis Self Healing is Real, with 100 people participating. “We will have a new assessment program to help individuals identify the best course of holistic protocols to support self-healing,” says Essex. “We will also be offering an affiliate program to support practitioners and their involvement. Luminosity Wellness Center will be launching education programs to support corporations and doctors.” Essex sees consciousness and awareness changing at a rapid pace, saying, “Luminosity and every business involved is dedicated to assisting in this shift. We offer education, solutions and support as we begin taking personal responsibility for our own health and happiness. Our professionals work together to raise awareness and accountability. We know that you deserve the best, and we also understand that change must take place in order for continued success.” Luminosity Wellness Center and Essex have a vision of creating a reproducible model that can be licensed in any community around the world. “It is time to take responsibility and ownership toward what we really want and need. Together we can make a difference, and the time is now!” she says. “Change your perception, change your DNA. Let us light the way upon this journey to health, wealth and happiness.” See ad, page 19.

ealth and beauty consultant Patty LaBarbara says, “NYR Organic U.S. is passionate about transforming people's lives, and educating and empowering them on how to live more healthily through the power of nature. "Since what we put on our skin gets absorbed into our bloodstream in 26 seconds, we should pay attention to the ingredients we use and how they are sourced. My passion is in sharing knowledge and products that are good for people, animals and the Earth. Our clients return again and again because they love our products and they appreciate how ethical our company is," says Patty. The products do not contain parabens, linked to estrogen overproduction; synthetic fragrances which may contain synthetic chemicals that are harmful to health; GMO ingredients, because not enough is known about the long-term implications; animal testing, which is unnecessary and cruel; silicones that coat the skin, impeding its natural function; phthalates, reported to have toxic impact on human and animal life; nano materials, as not enough is known about the long-term implications; mineral oils, derived from petroleum, that have a tendency to block the skin; EDTA that doesn't readily biodegrade; propylene glycol derived from petroleum; carbomer derived from petroleum; DEA, associated with known carcinogens; acrylates derived from petroleum; andBHT, linked to breathing and lung impairment.

ulianna Char is a certified Certificate of Science Master ThetaHealing instructor and Practitioner; New Paradigm Multi-Dimensional Transformation instructor; Seraphic Spheres instructor; Reiki master practitioner and Seraphim Blueprint practitioner. Soul Shine is home to Yoga Allia“I am passionate about assisting others in rediscovering themselves, falling in love with who they really are and realizing their true purpose,” says Char. “I am passionate about helping them to become consciously aware of the life that they are creating and assisting them in making changes if there is anything they would chose to add to their lives or subtract from it, by helping them acquire the tools and knowledge they need to make it happen.” She believes that mindfulness is the practice of maintaining a nonjudgmental state of heightened or complete awareness of one’s thoughts, emotions or experiences on a moment-to-moment basis, without rehashing the past or imagining the future. Mindfulness also includes acceptance of no position of the right or wrong way to think or feel in a given moment. Soul Healing Sanctuary is a place for people to come to realize their true potential and life's purpose. For them to fall in love with and feel free to be who they truly are. The techniques used to assist in achieving mindfulness include ThetaHealing, meditation, Reiki, New Paradigm Multi-Dimensional Transformation, Seraphic Spheres and more. Group classes and private sessions are available in person, over the phone and on the Internet via Skype. Char is also available to travel for presentations, classes, workshops and/or private sessions. “You are what you say, think and believe you are. You are the Creator of your own experience, your own life. You create your life by what you choose to believe, think and say about you and your life,” says Char. “Thoughts, words and beliefs are all more powerful than you can even imagine. How do you feel about the life that you are creating? Are you enjoying it? Is there anything about your life that you would change or wish was different? Or are you happy with your life just the way it is? Change the way you think, feel and believe and you can change your life and how you experience it.” See ad, page xx.

pirit of the Owl Healing Arts (SOTO) offers an alternative approach to assist the dying, by helping the person to heal on the energetic level. “My true work in this lifetime is to assist others in their healing journey through Reiki and shamanism,” says Reiki master Roxanne Perillo, founder of Spirit of the Owl Healing Arts. Perillo helps ease the mind and body of the terminally ill by reducing stress and bringing relaxation with Reiki energy. By helping a person’s spirit/ soul to heal with shamanic practices, she helps the dying cross to a place of peace at the time of death. “Clients often feel lighter, more free, unburdened and awakened to their healed state. They leave feeling empowered and peaceful as they understand and release trauma, fear, old wounds and heavy energy,” she says. “Energy healing is not limited to time or space, therefore a client does not need to be in the physical presence of the practitioner. Distant or remote healing can be a powerful experience so while I live in Wisconsin, my clients can be anywhere in the world and powerful healing can be realized,” explains Perillo. Healing sessions include a combination of shamanic practices such as soul retrieval, illumination, energy extraction, spirit release, energy body clearing and balancing, ceremony (fire, despacho), Reiki and guided meditation. Telephone and/or Skype sessions are available by appointment. See ad, page 26.

tevie Abrusci, owner of Stevie's Healing Arts & Spa, in Henderson, is a Licensed Cosmetologist, graduating from the New Mexico Aveda Institute in 1997, a licensed esthetician, a licensed esthetician instructor and is advanced trained and certified as a Novalash eyelash extensionist. Her organic and holistic healing arts center in Green Valley offers advanced skin care, deep tissue and Swedish massage, natural eyelash extensions, life coaching, aromatherapy, toe reading and much more. She says, “Stevie's Healing Arts & Spa is a place of non-judgment. We are not all perfect. We are all still working to become better people physically, mentally and spiritually. We eat gluten, drink a soda and sometimes forget to wash our faces at night. We are human! But our goal is to learn a better way to improve ourselves and help guide you on your journey if and when you ask for our help.” Abrusci believes, “I can use all the best products and machines on your skin or body, but if we don't change your energy to create a shift in the way you are feeling about yourself/life, the effects don't last. Beauty comes from within. We start each session with either aromatherapy or by burning Palo Santo (holy wood) to get you to take some deep breaths and release any negativity and stress you have carried in with you. I always find we get much better results when we add in energy work, aromatherapy, peaceful music, Reiki, chakra balance and the power of the elements into the service.” Her motto is, “Science with just the right amount of hippy.” She takes pride in her quality products, low prices and peaceful atmosphere in a convenient location and recommends that prospective clients view her Yelp reviews. Playing with themed environments in the salon, she says, “Most of our clients come on a monthly basis, so we like to mix it up with fun music. For example, we had a Jamaican facial special over the summer that included light reggae music and a lime and coconut massage. Other themes have included Moroccan and beach motifs. See ad, page 34.

racey Owens, an empowerment catalyst and spiritual teacher, brings her unique perspective to living in a truly empowered, authentic way. With many years of experience working in a variety of energy healing modalities, she brings a combination of mental brilliance, heartfelt warmth and spiritual curiosity to her life and work. Owens’ gifts include the ability to inspire others using Usui Reiki and metaphysical shamanism due to her own past experiences and her ability to communicate with extraordinary ease and clarity. She brings power forward as she taps into her healing gifts and uses her strengths and abilities to a high degree. She believes anyone can choose to unlearn programmed beliefs and conditioning and that transformation occurs through the conscious commitment of aligning how one thinks, speaks, feels and acts. Her services are a combination of spiritual counseling, thought transformation and energy healing work. This combination creates a welcoming environment for deep and lasting change to be brought forward and implemented.

TOP DOCS AND DENTISTS Dr. Jim Wright has always been fascinated by science… It was a way to escape an impoverished boyhood in inner city Chicago. In those days, the only way kids got out of his neighborhood was through sports scholarships. Thanks to his love of science, he rose from a tough vocational high school to enrollment invitations from Georgetown, University of the Pacific, Northwestern University, Loyola, etc. This was a dream come true for an inner city kid. Post dental school, he continued to study and earned accreditation from two international academies. Jim had the great fortune to study one-on-one with and be mentored by the incomparable genius, Dr. Hal Huggins, an extraordinary dentist, brilliant scientist, researcher and author. He developed protocols for safe removal of old (silver mercury) amalgam fillings, protecting the patient, dentist and dental assistants. He also pioneered revolutionary surgical procedures. During his life, Dr. Huggins selected Dr. Wright as one the few dentists he trusted for his own dental care. Dr. Huggins once told Dr. Wright, “I’m not here just because I like you son, it’s because I respect you. You are one of the top 1% of Dentists in the world.” Dr. Wright was beyond touched and replied, “Thank you Sir” as he wiped his eyes. Dr. Wright’s holistic knowledge and artistry bring patients from many states and countries. Famous musicians, entertainers and artists seek out Dr. Wright because of his reputation, and word of mouth recommendations. The transformations he has performed are featured on magazine covers the world over… You would never know it because he achieves such a natural look on his patients. But it’s not all celebrities and the famous for Dr. Wright… He often works late nights with those truly in need, changing lives, one patient at a time. Dr. Wright’s patients are smart people who do their research and want the very best. He fondly calls them Google Doctors. He happily answers their questions and sometimes learns from them. Typically they are Whole Foods Market and Trader Joe’s shoppers, who understand the benefits of organic foods and avoid toxins, chemicals, pesticides, heavy metals, GMO’s and BPA’s… People who do their research and make healthy choices for themselves and their children. His patients want a dentist who is committed to the best quality and understands the impact of dental health on the whole body, as opposed to a doctor who allows insurance companies to dictate treatment and downgrade materials. Dr. Wright has championed safe removal of mercury fillings for over 20 years. This is who Dr. Jim Wright really is... A down to earth, sincere, humble, holistic guy who cares. MV

These transmissions will fuel your growth and help you easily evolve in the fastest possible way towards a fulfilling and happy life.

“I have been involved with Trivedi Master Wellness™ for about a year now. I have noticed in my life that things are falling into place more easily. My health is improving – cholesterol is lower and blood pressure is also lower. Many situations and individuals that were negative in my life and did not serve me – have just fallen away. My energy level is higher, my intuition and alertness are more advanced. I am getting calls for higher paying jobs without even trying – whereas before this energy, I worked hard at it and rarely received replies. I feel very strongly that a higher paying career is right around the corner for me. I feel that this unique and powerful energy can assist you in your life too! The love and support that I have received from this organization is wonderful! I can honestly say that I have found exactly what I have been looking for – for over 20 years…a spiritual family that cares. They have helped me in my life and I am blessed to be a small part of this global healing phenomenon.”

These are spectacular events unlike anything you have ever experienced. We highly recommend you attend each workshop when it becomes available. natural awakenings
