letter from publisher

HEALTHY LIVING HEALTHY PLANET

T

his is just our third annual Emerald Coast Holistic Health Expo, and the event has already grown so much, so quickly, that more than a few folks have asked us why we chose the humble turtle as our unofficial mascot. (You can see it as the “o” in the expo logo.)

But when you think about what Natural Awakenings and our expo hope to promote—mindfulness, peace, simplicity and, of course, appreciation for and connection with nature—no mascot seems Scott and Daralyn more appropriate than this unassuming creature. Chase One of the Earth’s oldest animals, the turtle is considered a powerful totem. Indigenous cultures, and the people who have adopted those cultures’ spiritual practices, admire the turtle not just because of its association with ancient wisdom, but also because of its deliberate character. As we practice mindfulness, we can look to the turtle as a model of how to behave. Consider how a turtle moves through the world. It stays calm and undistracted, even in the midst of manmade chaos. It moves slowly, staying on the course it knows is right, maintaining its physical connection to the earth or water; it is persistent, propelling itself forward despite sometimes overwhelming obstacles. The turtle is in no hurry. It moves at its own pace—a pace dictated by nature. Wouldn’t the world be a more peaceful place if we all had the wisdom to trust our inner guide, to follow the instructions that nature has so clearly laid out for us? Here on the Gulf Coast, many of us have been lucky enough to witness a sea turtle’s tedious journey from nest to ocean. Have you ever noticed how quiet people become when they happen upon this miracle of survival? People stop everything they’re doing to watch, and as a crowd gathers, there’s no need for the spectators to hush each other. Somehow, this ancient creature commands humans’ reverence and respect—not because it’s fast or beautiful or agile, but because it’s fulfilling the prophecy of Mother Nature, and accepting its path with resolute innocence. Finally, let’s not forget the symbolic message of the creature that carries its home on its back. The turtle reminds us that for as long as we live, we are attached to our “homes” in both the smaller sense (our bodies) and the larger one (the Earth). It’s our sacred responsibility to appreciate and care for both. That’s the message we try to share every month in the pages of Natural Awakenings, and every year at the Emerald Coast Holistic Health Expo. Hope to see at the expo!

Gooseberries are Good for the Gut Researchers from Malaysia’s Islamic Science University tested 30 patients with gastrointestinal issues, dividing them into three groups. One received lactose, a placebo; another group was given omeprazole, an overthe-counter remedy; and the third Phyllanthus emblica Linn, an ayurvedic treatment for gastrointestinal issues also known as Indian gooseberry. The research found the herbal treatment resulted in less pain, vomiting, sleep loss and other issues. Participants’ intestinal walls also showed signs of significant healing. The researchers concluded, “Findings indicate that the ethanolic extract of P. emblica fruits has gastroprotective effects in humans that justify its traditional use.” 14

Research from Duke University Medical School indicates that eating red meat and poultry increases risk for Type 2 diabetes. Published in the American Journal of Epidemiology, the Singapore Chinese Health Study followed 63,257 adults between ages 45 and 74 for an average of 11 years each. It was determined that meat and poultry consumption increased diabetes incidence by 23 and 15 percent, respectively.

Leafy greens, which are rich in vitamin K, have again been shown to provide outsized benefits for heart health. Researchers from the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University found that a reduced intake of vitamin K1 leads to more than triple the risk of an enlargement of the heart’s left ventricle, which reduces blood pumping volume, according to a study published in the Journal of Nutrition. Researchers followed diet records for 766 participants ages 14 to 18 and monitored their vascular structure and functionality. When compared to those with the highest intake of vitamin K1 from foods such as spinach, cabbage and other leafy, green vegetables, those with the lowest intake were more likely to experience vascular enlargement.

Eating Meat Raises Diabetes Risk

PHYSICAL ACTIVITY DETERS ALZHEIMER’S According to a study in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, researchers discovered the risk of dementia can be halved by engaging in physical activities like walking, dancing and gardening, which significantly improve brain volume in the hippocampus region and the frontal, temporal and parietal lobes. The scientists studied 876 participants for 30 years and completed a longitudinal memory test of the patients, which were 78 years old on average, and followed up with MRI brain scans. They recorded their physical activity and logged caloric output every week. Two other studies found that any exercise that raises our heart rate and produces sweating for a sustained period will benefit cognitive health as we age. One meta-analysis of 36 studies from Australia’s University of Canberra found that exercise improved cognition by an average of 29 percent for those older than 50; another small group study from Germany’s Otto von Guericke University, in Magdeburg, specifically showed that dancing benefits seniors’ cognition.

Renewable Energy Subsidies Lag Far Behind

The G20 nations, comprising the world’s biggest economies, provide four times more public financing to support fossil fuels than renewable energy, says a report from the environmental coalition Oil Change International (Tinyurl.com/ TalkIsCheapOilReport). This took place even though German Chancellor Angela Merkel announced climate change as the heart of the agenda at the Hamburg summit in July 2017. The public financing—in soft loans and guarantees from governments along with huge fossil fuel subsidies—makes coal, oil and natural gas cheaper to use in the short run because both the front-end and back-end costs are undisclosed.

Sweet Potato Project Encourages Enterprise

The Sweet Potato Project, started by journalist Sylvester Brown, Jr., will work in partnership with St. Louis University and a small cadre of local nonprofits called the North City Food Hub to hold culinary, small business, horticulture, restaurant management, and land-ownership classes and business incubator opportunities this spring. The goal is to enable at-risk youths in North St. Louis to grow food and make money through food packaging and distribution. The project encourages people to become innovative, selfsufficient players in today’s expanding global economy. Brown says, “Success doesn’t always mean you’ve made a lot of money; it can also mean you’ve survived poverty or managed to create something.” 16

Uncontrolled Lice Threaten Fish Industry

A surge in parasitic sea lice that attach themselves to and feed on salmon, killing or rendering them unsuitable for dinner tables, is disrupting salmon farms in the U.S., Canada, Scotland, Norway and Chile. Wholesale prices for the species have already increased 50 percent over last year, leading to higher consumer prices for everything from salmon fillets and steaks to more expensive lox on bagels. Scientists and fish farmers are working on new ways to control the pests. Fish Farmer magazine states that losses by the global aquaculture industry could be as high as $1 billion annually. The only hope is to develop new methods to control the spread of the lice, which are naturally present in the wild, but thrive in the tightly packed ocean pens used for fish farming.

Hywind, the first floating wind farm in the UK, is located 15 miles offshore of Peterhead, in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. Its five turbines with a 30-megawatt capacity will provide clean energy to more than 20,000 homes to help meet the country’s ambitious climate change targets. First Minister Nicola Sturgeon says, “The government’s commitment to the development of this technology, coupled with Statoil’s [lithium] battery storage project, Batwind, positions Scotland as a world center for energy innovation.” Hywind is operated by Norwegian oil and gas company Statoil ASA and Masdar Abu Dhabi Future Energy Co.

TIPS FOR ATTENDING

Experience and Enjoy Natural Awakenings’ 3rd Annual Expo to the Fullest!

From Belly Dance to Natural Fashion, Plenty to See on the Demonstration Stage

T

here will be nonstop action on the Expo’s new Demonstration Stage, where visitors can see the latest in natural-fiber fashion, learn to belly dance, move to the groove of a drum circle or try energizing tai chi. These four demos will be in continuous rotation, beginning every hour on the half hour, in this order:

BellaLine Fashion Show

BellaLine specializes in fashion-forward organic apparel that is handmade through fair trade or in the United States, but never mass-produced. BellaLine creator Courtney Taylor, a Gulf Coast native, believes that consumers deserve the choice to buy clothing they feel good about wearing with the knowledge of where and how it was produced. BellaLine apparel is made from organic cotton and/or other eco-friendly fibers such as bamboo and recyclable materials. BellaLine creates effortless style that lets you look and feel your best, while supporting the well-being of those who make BellaLine possible.

Belly Dance with Sarah Elkins

Sarah Elkins has been teaching belly dance on the Emerald Coast since 2006. In this interactive demo, she’ll give a brief performance, teach basic moves and discuss the health benefits of belly dance, which offers an alternative healing method for women of all ages, shapes and experience levels. Each shimmy and graceful undulation is an expression of strength and femininity. It’s also a great low-impact workout that increases flexibility and tones your entire body, while boosting your confidence and empowering you.

Register Ahead and Arrive Early

Register ahead online for a FREE Fast Pass— you’ll bypass the line and receive an extra door prize ticket. The first 500 attendees to arrive get a FREE eco-tote.

Attend Free Presentations

Sponsored presentations are offered at no additional charge. Reserve your seat at any of the presentations and panel discussions when you sign up for your Fast Pass online.

Schedule a Private Session

Embrace your experience with any of the private sessions available: AromaTouch, hypnosis, health assessments, ThetaHealing, Resurrection Healing, reflexology and more (TBA). Available at special prices for the expo only.

Win Door Prizes!

Hundreds of door prizes have been graciously provided by expo exhibitors and sponsors. Every attendee will receive a door prize entry, plus an extra entry for each presentation attended and two additional entries for attending the workshop. Door prizes will be given out every 30 minutes. The more you do, the more door prize entry tickets you will receive! Visit the Attendee Registration page for more details.

Pensacola Drum Circle

The largest musical group of its kind in the Gulf Coast area, Pensacola Drum Circle (Jesse James Edwards, Christian Butts and Tim Delaney) have been gathering for more than five years on Pensacola Beach—at Casino Beach or Palafox Pier or elsewhere, historically on Sundays closest to the full moon, but more recently on Saturdays. As you might guess, it’s a pretty relaxed affair, with the occasional belly dancer, hula hooper or poi dancer joining in. Now Expo visitors can join in too.

Tai Chi with Sensei John D. Lee

Sensei John D. Lee has been involved in martial arts for most of his life. At first he was more interested in philosophies and ideals than specific styles, but he became interested in the practical application of martial arts as he grew older. His kajukenbo instructor, Grandmaster Ron Pierce, studied directly under Sijo Emperado, one of five martial artists who developed the kajukenbo self-defense system. In 2010, Lee created his own self-defense system, Calm Water. 18

The World’s Healthiest Cuisines What Five Countries Can Teach Us about Good Eating by Judith Fertig

A

mericans love to explore ethnic cuisines and then put their own “more is better” spin on them, like a Chinese stir-fry turned into chop suey with fried rice or a pasta side dish supersized into a whole meal. “We’ve Americanized dishes to the extent that they don’t have their original health benefits,” says Dr. Daphne Miller, a family physician in the San Francisco Bay area and author of The Jungle Effect: The Healthiest Diets from Around the World—Why They Work and How to Make Them Work for You. Here are five popular—and healthy— world cuisines, known for their great dishes, star ingredients and health-enhancing practices.

Traditional Japanese

Ingredients. The dietary benefits of green tea, fermented soy and mushrooms like shiitake and maitake are well documented. 24

Add dried seaweed to this list. Beyond sushi, it’s a delicious ingredient in brothy soups, where it reconstitutes to add a noodle-like quality, slightly smoky flavor and beneficial minerals, including calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, molybdenum, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, vanadium and zinc. A study in the Asia Pacific Journal of Clinical Nutrition linked the longevity of Okinawan residents to eating seaweed, a staple of macrobiotic diets. New York City culinary instructor and cookbook author Hiroko Shimbo prefers dried wakame seaweed, readily available in the U.S. Practices. Shimbo grew up in Tokyo, Japan, where her mother helped her surgeon father’s patients by preparing foods that helped them recover quickly. Shimbo believes wholeheartedly in Ishoku-dogen, a Japanese concept often translated as, “Food is medicine.”

South Indian

Ingredients. South India—including the states of Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Telangana—offers many plant-based dishes that feature coconut, rice and spices such as turmeric, known for decreasing inflammation, according to the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine. Varieties of dried split peas called dal [dal is singular and plural] are used in vegetable curries and ground to make the gluten-free savory crepes known as dosa or puffy white idlis for a snack or breakfast. South India native and current Minneapolis resident Raghavan Iyer, teacher, consultant and author of many cookbooks, including 660 Curries, says, “One technique that gives vegetable dishes a lift is dry-frying or toasting whole spices. It adds complexity and nuttiness.” Simply heat a cast iron skillet, add the whole spices and

Shimbo says, “I eat fairly well, treating food as blessings from nature that keep me healthy and energetic. I do not often indulge in expensive, rich foods.” She prefers eating foods in season and small portions, listening to what her body craves. When feeling the need for minerals and vitamins, she makes a brothy soup with just a little dried wakame, which reconstitutes to four times its dried volume. A second practice supporting healthy well-being is hara hachi bu, or “Eat until your stomach is 80 percent full.” It requires self-discipline to eat slowly and decline more food. But this restraint supports a widely accepted fact that “It takes about 20 minutes for the brain to receive the message that the stomach is full. If we eat slowly, we get the message at the right time, even if we want a few more bites. If we eat too quickly, by the time our brain sends the message, we have probably eaten too much,” says Shimbo. One Great Dish: Japanese soups offer nutrition and flavor in a bowl. Shimbo’s Eata-Lot Wakame Sea Vegetable Soup in her cookbook The Japanese Kitchen: 250 Recipes in a Traditional Spirit can be made with chicken or vegetable broth. Other healthy ingredients like sesame oil, fresh ginger, scallions and garlic boost its health benefits.

dry fry until spicy aromas arise; then add them to a dish. Practice. South Indian meals usually comprise many small, highly flavored, colorful, plant-based dishes served with rice. They yield a pleasant aroma and sensation of fullness without overdoing it, says Iyer. One Great Dish: A vegetable/legume curry such as tamata chana dal, or smoky yellow split peas is simple to make. Iyer cooks dried, yellow, split peas with potatoes and turmeric, then dry-fries dried chilis and spices, and purées them in a blender for a no-fat, vegan and glutenfree dish. In Iyer’s view, “The epitome of comfort food is a bowl of dal and rice.”

Garden-to-Table Italian

Ingredients. There’s American-Italian, as in pizza with pepperoni and double cheese, and then there’s real Italian dishes dating back to the Etruscans. Healthy Italian starts with the love of growing things. Whatever grows in the garden is best, served simply with extra virgin olive oil; a recent Temple University study found it preserves memory and wards off Alzheimer’s. Eugenia Giobbi Bone, co-author of Italian Family Dining: Recipes, Menus, and Memories of Meals with a Great American Food Family, says, “My palate was formed with the flavors of homegrown foods. Cooking in central Italy is all about bringing out the flavor of a few very fresh, well-grown ingredients. That means primarily seasonal eating, with lots of vegetables and little meat in summer, the opposite in winter. There isn’t a lot of fuss to the culinary style, which instead depends on interesting, but simple combinations of foods and techniques.” Practice. Italian families’ view of healthful garden-to-table includes the exercise attained from gardening. “We have a good work ethic in our family,” remarks Bone, who lives in New York City and Crawford, Colorado. “We are of the mentality that physical work is satisfying, even when it is hard.” From her father’s family, Bone has learned to break a meal into small courses and to eat heavier during the day and lighter at night because this helps maintain a healthy weight, according to many studies including one published in the UK journal Diabetologia.

One Great Dish: Dress up pasta with a seasonal vegetable sauce, such as caponata, an eggplant and tomato mixture, or include primavera via spring vegetables and basil, or arrabbiata, featuring tomatoes and red pepper flakes.

Lebanese

Ingredients. “So much about Lebanese cuisine is ‘on trend’ with our tart and sour flavors from lemon, sumac and pomegranate molasses, a wide array of vegetarian and vegan dishes, plus a tradition of pickling, called mouneh, and yogurt and cheese-making,” says food blogger Maureen Abood, author of Rose Water & Orange Blossoms: Fresh and Classic Recipes from My Lebanese Kitchen. “Lebanese cuisine is extraordinarily healthy, fitting squarely into the Mediterranean diet.” Abood lives in East Lansing, Michigan, where she loves to use summer cherries and berries in her Lebaneseinspired dishes. According to Abood, another reason why Lebanese food is so popular is that Lebanese immigrants to the

makes with sweet cherries and walnuts for “a perfectly healthy and crazy-delicious meal.”

Vietnamese

U.S. now outnumber the native population of their mother country. Practice. Gathering to share food is a hallmark of Lebanese hospitality. “The Lebanese style of eating includes maza; many small shared plates of remarkable variety,” says Abood. “Food as medicine” is also a Lebanese practice, according to a study in the journal Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine. One Great Dish: “Many of my favorite Lebanese dishes are plant-based,” says Abood. “We love to stuff everything from cabbage to summer squash to grape leaves with vegetarian fillings, and cook them in a garlic or tomato broth. Every week, we make and eat mujaddara, a lentil and rice or bulgur pilaf with deeply caramelized onions.” Pair with any Lebanese salad, such as one she

Ingredients. Vietnamese cooking emphasizes fresh herbs and leafy greens, green papaya, seafood, rice and condiments. A study in the British Journal of Nutrition found that green or unripe papaya contains more healthy carotenoids (lutein, beta-carotene and lycopene) than tomatoes or carrots. Practice. The preferred style of Vietnamese cooking is steaming or simmering, using less fat. It also encourages communal eating, with each diner dipping an ingredient into a cooking pot. Cooked foods are accompanied by fresh salad greens, including herbs served as whole leaves. One Great Dish: Vietnamese hot pot is a favorite of Andrea Nguyen, whose Vietnamese family emigrated to California. Nguyen, author of Into the Vietnamese Kitchen: Treasured Foodways, Modern Flavors, blogs about food at VietWorldKitchen.com and now lives near San Francisco, California. “This is a slow, cook-it-yourself kind of meal. Set it up, relax with some organic wine or beer and enjoy. Flavors develop and the hot pot transforms as you eat,” she says. “At the end, you’ll slurp up the remaining broth and noodles.” See Tinyurl.com/Viet-ChineseHotPotRecipe. French Bonus: While croissants and triple-crème brie might not seem part of an ideal diet, rediscover two healthy practices from the French: Eat less and eat together. Ongoing studies at Cornell University show that we eat less if offered less. When researcher Paul Rozin, Ph.D., a psychology professor with the University of Pennsylvania, compared portions in Paris, France, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the Philly portions were 25 percent larger. It’s also reflected in the two countries’ cookbook recipes. Rozin further found that French diners spent more time eating those smaller portions—perhaps explaining the French paradox: Most French eat rich foods and drink wine, yet don’t get fat.

Used in India for 4,000 years, black pepper may be the most popular spice of our era. “Black pepper can increase the amount of nutrients your body absorbs from other food and spices,” says de la Forêt. A study published in Plant Medica concluded that subjects consuming a small amount (20 milligrams) of an extract of black pepper showed an increase of retained curcumin in their bodies. For maximum benefits, grind whole peppercorns directly onto food at mealtime.

SPICE UP HEALTHY COOKING afterwards,” says de la Forêt, citing a study published in Clinical Nutrition. “I mince a clove and mix it with honey to make it easier to swallow.”

“One of cinnamon’s super powers is that it may help regulate blood glucose in patients with Type 2 diabetes,” Roy says. In a study published in Diabetic Medicine, subjects taking two grams of cinnamon daily for 12 weeks exhibited much better blood sugar control. Roy suggests sprinkling it on oatmeal, apples, pumpkin pie and brownies. Roast chicken flavored with cinnamon and other spices is another treat.

Garlic (Allium sativum)

“There’s a lot of evidence that suggests garlic supports heart health,” says Rosalee de la Forêt, a clinical herbalist and author of Alchemy of Herbs: Transform Everyday Ingredients into Foods and Remedies that Heal. A study published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition tracked the blood pressure of 79 patients with uncontrolled hypertension and found that the mean systolic blood pressure of those consuming two 240-milligram capsules of aged garlic extract a day for 12 weeks significantly decreased compared to those taking one capsule or a placebo. “Garlic may also reduce the duration and severity of colds and flu when taken at the onset of symptoms and each day 28

Cinnamon (Cinnamomum cassia and Cinnamomum verum)

Dr. Lipi Roy, a clinical assistant professor at the New York University School of Medicine and blogger at SpicesForLifemd.com, considers turmeric the golden spice of life. “In addition to its role in Indian and Asian cuisine, turmeric is used in traditional Indian medicine to treat common ailments like stomach upset, ulcers, flatulence, arthritis, sprains, wounds and skin and eye infections,” she says. A study published in Oncogene concluded that curcumin (the active ingredient in turmeric) was a more potent anti-inflammatory agent than aspirin or ibuprofen. Try adding a little turmeric and ground black pepper to soups, salads and sauces.

“Ginger is a rhizome people have traditionally used medicinally to help with digestive issues, including upset stomachs and nausea,” says Karen Kennedy, of Concord, Ohio, a horticulturist and educator at the Herb Society of America. In a study published in the World Journal of Gastroenterology, researchers concluded that gastric emptying and relief was more rapid after subjects with frequent or severe stomach upsets ingested 1.2 grams of ginger. Ginger is also linked to increased circulation and reduced inflammation. A study published in Phytotherapy Research noted that this spice also worked in alleviating migraines equal to the pharma-

Black Pepper (Piper nigrum)


Herbs are not spices although the term spice is sometimes used to encompass them all. An herb is the leaf of a plant when used in cooking. Spices can be buds, bark, roots, berries, seeds or any other part of a plant, and are often dried.

A common spice added to Hungarian, Portuguese, Spanish, Turkish and Indian cuisine, paprika is rich in natural carotenoids (the orangey pigment in many plants with antioxidant power) and capsaicin, both of which may decrease mortality from chronic illnesses. Another benefit of this capsaicincontaining spice is its ability to control appetite. In research published in the journal Physiology and Behavior, participants that consumed red pepper spice had a slightly higher core temperature and energy expenditure after a meal than the control group. The study further suggested that those that consumed capsaicin-containing spices like paprika ate fewer calories per day and had less interest in food. “Paprika is a great salt alternative, too,” says Roy. “Too often, people think they are craving salt, but they aren’t. They are craving flavor, and paprika gives a nice kick to chili, salad, grilled cheese and so many other foods.” Amber Lanier Nagle is a freelance writer in Northwest Georgia (AmberNagle.com).

Upbeat Kids Five Steps to Positivity by Tamar Chansky

This is a family master plan for helping both children and adults resist negative thinking.

Step One: Empathize with a Child’s Experience While the desired outcome is to help a child embrace a different point of view of their situation, the first goal is not to come on too strong with an agenda of change. Instead, start from where they are, based on an expressed emotion. Reflect this with words, a hug or a gesture. Thoroughly accepting how a child feels doesn’t necessarily imply agreeing or sharing the same view, but it does release them from having to show how bad they feel. So when a child says, “I feel like I’m in jail,” resist the urge to say, “Are you crazy?” Rather than try to steer them off their course, go in the direction of their swerve to help direct them back to their best self. The key is to normalize the experience without minimizing it. Exhibiting too much good cheer means they have no choice but to be grumpy to get their point across. Introduce the idea of choice: “Your thoughts are making you feel really bad. I wonder if there is something different we could do.” Don’t oppressively correct them with the right answer; it makes a child feel bad for being wrong. 30

Step Two: Relabel Instead of being led down a thorny patch lined with terrible impossibilities and accusations, we might steel ourselves to remain calm, get some distance or take our thoughts with a grain of salt. Relabeling begins with noticing a familiar ring to a child’s thoughts and distress; like us, they can also learn to recognize when “Mr. Negative” appears. Then they’re better prepared for discussion. As parents, when we learn to predict, “Yep, I knew my negative thinking was going to jump to that conclusion,” we can decide to choose other interpretations.

Step Three: Specify What Went Wrong Don’t be tempted to try to solve the huge problem initially presented, such as, “I hate my life, everything is terrible, I can’t do anything right.” The goal is actually much smaller, so teach a child to shrink it by narrowing down from some global form to the specific offending thought or situation that needs to be addressed. With young

children, frame this approach as doing detective work to locate the source of the problem; with older children, explain that it’s usually a triggering event that makes us feel really bad—the straw that broke the camel’s back. It’s key to helping them know what to do to feel better.

Step Four: Optimize and Rewire When a child is thinking negatively, their thoughts stall, their strengths and resources lock up, and their energy, motivation and hopefulness are drained. Try different settings or perspectives on the specific problem the child has identified and choose the version or interpretation that works best for them, one that is the least damaging, most accurate and gets their system moving in a new direction.

Step Five: Mobilize to Be the Change When we can’t think our way out of a mood, we can move ourselves out of it. Like picking up the needle on a skipping

record and putting it down elsewhere, doing something active helps the brain engage in something enjoyable until our nervous system recovers. Thoughts, like a windup toy with its wheels against a wall, can keep spinning fruitlessly in place until manually turned in a new direction. Redirecting differs from distracting ourself from negative thoughts. Distractions play hide-and-seek with negativity; eventually, it will find us again. The master plan in caring for a child calls for us to first dismantle the power of whatever perspective is bullying them, correctly value ideas and then focus on what matters most. Whether we’re accepting or dismissing thoughts that suggest themselves, either way, we’re the boss because thoughts have only the power we give them and we are equipped to let them float on by or to amend, correct or replace them.

Her many books include Freeing Your Child from Negative Thinking. For more information, visit TamarChansky.com.

Sunshine on Our Shoulders

Makes Us Happy and Healthy by Kathleen Barnes

E

ver since skin cancer scares penetrated the national psyche in the mid-1980s, Americans have been conditioned to cover up and slather on sunscreen when we leave the house. Now experts say we haven’t been doing ourselves a favor, even when strictly using all-natural formulas. We’ve been blocking the sun’s life-giving rays, essential for the body’s production of vitamin D, and possibly prompting a host of health problems.

Safe Exposure Update

“Ninety percent of the vitamin D we get comes from the sun, and exposing arms and legs for a few minutes a day is enough for most people with no risk of skin cancer,” says Registered Nurse Sue Penckofer, Ph.D., a professor in the School of Nursing at Chicago’s Loyola University. She’s the lead researcher for the Sunshine 2 Study, a clinical trial investigating the vitamin’s vital role in relieving depression.

MORE than just another herb store

“Every tissue and cell of your body requires vitamin D to function properly,” says Michael Holick, Ph.D., a medical doctor who has pioneered vitamin D research at the Boston University Medical Center. A 40-year professor at the Boston University School of Medicine, he’s a fervent advocate of sensible sun exposure. “Vitamin D is actually a hormone, essential for bone and muscle health. It plays a significant role in reducing the risk of infectious diseases, including cardiovascular problems and certain cancers, contributes to brain function and memory, and elevates mood, all while reducing early mortality,” explains Holick, author of The Vitamin D Solution: A 3-Step Strategy to Cure Our Most Common Health Problem. Yet, he says, about half of all Americans are among the 1 billion people worldwide that are vitamin D deficient. Published vitamin D research in the U.S. National Library of Medicine turns up 74,486 studies and citations dating back to 1922, with nearly half done in the past 10 years; 478 of the total were authored or co-authored by Holick or cited his research. His work confirms that sensible sun exposure and supplementing with natural vitamin D3 brings vitamin D levels to the optimal 40 to 60 nanograms per milliliter (ng/ml). New research from the University of Surrey, in the UK, found D3 twice as effective in raising vitamin D levels as D2, which is often synthetically produced. While the human body manufactures vitamin D as a response to sun exposure, eating certain foods like fatty fish, egg

Fortifying foods with the vitamin is controversial. “It’s interesting that the right sun exposure will correct D deficiency rapidly, but won’t create an excess.

Holick, who differentiates between unhealthy tanning and healthy sun exposure, recommends exposing arms and legs to noonday sun for five to 10 minutes three times a week for most people. He adds, “Everyone needs 1,500 to 2,000 international units of vitamin D3 [supplements] a day year-round, and obese people need two to three times that much, because their ability to manufacture vitamin D is impaired.” Penckofer’s research confirms that fair-skinned people absorb the sun’s rays easily and quickly, while darker-skinned people have a natural sunblock, so they need much longer sun exposure to absorb the UVB rays that trigger the production of vitamin D. She remarks that inadequate vitamin D is a possible explanation for the greater risk of high blood pressure observed in African-Americans. Holick contends that anyone living north of Atlanta, Georgia, cannot get enough winter sun exposure to maintain optimal vitamin D levels. “While vitamin D can be stored in the body for up to two months, a winter-induced deficiency is a convincing explanation for the seasonal affective disorder that strikes many in northern states in January, just two months after the weather turns too cold to get sufficient sun exposure,” explains Penckofer. “In Alaska, we eat lots of fatty fish and take D supplements in winter. We know there’s no chance we’re getting the D we need from the sun, even when we’re sunbathing in negative 30 degrees Fahrenheit temperatures,” quips Thompson.

Ilona Selke on the

Power of Dreaming Big by April Thompson

F

or 30 years, international bestselling author, teacher and speaker Ilona Selke has inspired thousands of people worldwide to create a more ful-filling life by discovering the power of their consciousness. She’s the author of six books, including Dream Big: The Universe is Listening and The Big Secret, co-authored with Jack Canfield. Her Living from Vision course, available in six languages including Chinese, teaches how to use the power of visualization to

tap into our highest potential and deepest dreams in order to manifest miracles. Born in the Himalayas to German parents, Selke spent her first three years in Afghanistan speaking Persian and German, and then grew up in Germany. She moved to the U.S. at age 20 to study philosophy, where she met her husband and partner, Don Paris. The couple spent 25 years studying and communicating with dolphins in natural waters, experiences shared through her books Wisdom of the Dolphins and Dol-

phins, Love and Destiny. They split their time between a geodesic dome home on a Northwest Pacific island and the Shambala retreat center they founded in Bali.

What is key to manifesting our dreams and desires? It’s a four-step process. First, form a clear description in your mind, positively framed and based on your passion. No matter how big the dream, if you are behind it heart and soul, you will manifest miracles. Next, imagine the scenario as if it has already happened. The third and most vital step is to feel the feeling of your fulfilled wish as if it has already manifested. Fourth, create a metaphorical image that represents the feeling. By applying this method, our clients have manifested a desired pregnancy, funding for an overseas orphanage and redemption of a suicidal teen. In the latter case, the young man went on to focus on his dream of learning jazz piano well enough to play benefit concerts for children being treated for cancer.

Which universal principles are at work behind manifestation? We live in a conscious, interactive universe, and it is listening. Our Western scientific mindset may not support the idea, but thousands of years of mystical teachings, as well as new understanding via quantum physics, teach that the observer is an intricate part of what appears

to be solid matter. In practice, it means we can communicate intentionally with the universe. When we learn to do so, it responds to us.

How do our thoughts affect our reality? All our thoughts, subconscious as well as conscious, affect how things manifest around us. If we have contradictory beliefs, it is hard to manifest things. For example, if we say we want money, but somehow believe that money is dirty, evil or undeserved, then we are pushing and pulling against ourselves. It’s important to dive into our subconscious mind and heart, and deal with the negative feelings that dwell there, such as hurt, sadness and trauma. Make this a daily activity—cleaning your emotional being. Eventually, your subconscious and conscious mind as well as the superconscious will all point in one direction and you will see your desired results. We guide people to build their success, aspirations and dreams in alignment with their deepest values as well as their purpose in life. Uniting purpose and direction is tremendous fuel for moving in the direction of your dreams.

Why does choosing goals aligned with our purpose make them manifest more easily? Personal goals and inner purpose are not always aligned for everyone. However, when you take time to become aware of your deepest dreams, you may find that a part of your purpose is embedded in them. Be aware that many people confuse their larger life purpose with their talents. Our talents are what we love to do, what we are good at. Yet our deeper purpose actually is to shine more light and share more love. That is the common true root to our purpose. My suggestion is to read books that share success stories from those that are living on purpose and provide step-by-step instructions on how to get there.

FRUGAL FOODIE Practical Uses for Aging Produce

W

by Judith Fertig

hen Jacques Pépin was growing up in France during World War II, he watched his mother use every scrap of food to meet the family’s needs, and then send him to live with a farmer in summer so her growing son could eat fresh from the farm. Today, the internationally renowned PBS-TV chef and cookbook author carries these sensibilities forward at his home and studio in Madison, Connecticut. “In Europe, and certainly in France, healthy food is much more expensive,” he says. “In America, a chef may have the person that washes dishes also prepare salads. With lettuce, he’ll cut off the whole top, cut out the heart and throw out the rest.” U.S. restaurant kitchens mirror home kitchens, where the average family throws away a quarter of the food they buy, wasting an average of $2,200 a year. These scraps mean wasted food and money at home, plus misspent resources to grow and transport the food. According to a report by the National Resource Defense Council, “Getting food to our tables eats up 10 percent of the total U.S. energy budget, uses 50 percent of U.S. land and swallows 80 percent of the fresh water consumed in the United States.” 38

To save money and also live better, here are just some of many easy ways to use up every bit of fresh produce we buy.

Asparagus Ends

Self-described “frugal foodie” Diana Johnson, of Auburn, Washington, never lets asparagus ends go to waste. With the help of a blender, she turns them into a creamy asparagus soup—minus the cream—that her family loves (Tinyurl.com/AsparagusSoupTips).

Broccoli, Swiss Chard and Spinach Stems

Thrifty cooks know the magic of quick pickles. Recycle the brine from pickles and pack thinly cut stems of broccoli, Swiss chard and mature spinach into the jar until covered with the brine, then seal and refrigerate. In a few days, these quick pickles will be ready for snacking and sandwiches.

Carrot and Beet Tops

Very fine carrot tops can be used like parsley. With a food processor or high-speed blender, transform them into a favorite pesto or salsa verde recipe, suggests Registered

Natural Awakenings of Northwest Florida

www.NWFNaturally.com

Freeze what’s left in the bottle in ice cube trays, suggests Anisha Jhaveri, a film writer and wine lover in New York City. It can add flavor to soups and stews, sauces and desserts like wine-poached pears.

Lemon Peels The limonene in lemon peels is a natural cleaner and degreaser, says blogger Jill Nystul, of Salt Lake City, Utah. She makes her own Citrus Vinegar All-Purpose Cleanser by simply packing lemon peels in a jar and topping with vinegar. See how at Tinyurl.com/HomemadeCitrusCleaners.

Vegetable Peels and Trimmings Instead of throwing out onion skins, carrot peels, celery leaves and tough leek stems, collect them in a freezer bag over time and store in the freezer. When enough has accumulated to fill a pot, make homemade vegetable stock, suggests Sonnet Lauberth, a certified holistic health coach, blogger and cookbook author in Seattle (InSonnetsKitchen.com/how-to-make-perfect-vegetablestock-for). At home, Pépin makes “fridge soup” once a week. “Whatever is left in the fridge—carrots, lettuce, a piece of leftover meat or whatever else I made the other day—goes into the soup,” says Pépin. “We finish it with some vermicelli or polenta or good bread.” A delicious meal, shared with family and friends, makes frugality festive. Judith Fertig writes award-winning cookbooks plus foodie fiction from Overland Park, KS (JudithFertig.com).

Nine Tips to Tackle Food Waste at Home

You don’t have to live with Chronic Pain or Numbness

J

onathan Bloom, author of American Wasteland: How America Throws Away Nearly Half of Its Food (And What We Can Do About It), suggests many ways to curb this habit at, WastedFood.com. Here are some suggestions from him and others:

1

Shop smart. Plan meals for the week with a detailed shopping list, suggests Madeline Basler, a certified dietitian nutritionist in Long Island, New York.

2

Save, transform and eat leftovers. “Eat down the fridge,” counsels Kim O’Donnell, a chef and cookbook author in Portland, Oregon. Turn leftovers into frittata, sandwich fillings, pasta sauces and soups. In this way, we’re not eating quite the same meal again.

3 4 5

Store food in safe, sealable glass containers, so it’s easy to see. Avoid clutter in the refrigerator and freezer; if we can’t see it, we won’t eat it.

Treat expiration and sell-by dates as just guidelines. There is wiggle room in both, advises Bloom.

Sprouts for Pets

Crunchy Nutrition Animals Will Love espite their small size, sprouts pack a nutritional wallop with vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, antioxidants and protein. Dogs, birds, horses and even cats enjoy the crunch, as well as the health benefits.

Cats

Notorious for being picky eaters, cats might balk at sprouts being added to their regular diet. Rather than upsetting the status quo, grow sprouts like alfalfa or barley on a handy windowsill for grazing. “My cats prefer self-serve,” observes veterinarian Carol Osborne, owner of the Chagrin Falls Veterinary Center & Pet Clinic, in Ohio. “Now they leave my house plants alone.” Both cats and dogs may show improved gastric intestinal health as a result.

Dogs Dogs are more accepting of new content in their food bowl. “Add just a few sprouts so a dog gets used to the slightly bitter taste. Once acclimated, one-eighth to one40

quarter cup daily per 20 pounds of the pet’s weight is the rule of thumb,” says Osborne. She counsels against serving Fido onion, garlic, corn or mushroom sprouts. Peas, sunflowers, radishes, alfalfa and clover are suggested; they are all tasty and easy to grow.

Birds “We encourage people to make their own sprouts. It’s easy to get quality seeds for legumes or grains from Whole Foods, BobsRedMill.com or Nuts.com,” says Ann Brooks, president of the all-volunteer Phoenix Landing Foundation, in Asheville, North Carolina. They provide educational activities and facilitate adoption of birds, from parakeets to macaws. Sprouts from the store can be risky, because of bacteria, she cautions. “If not growing your own, the only one I recom-

mend is the organic crunchy mix from SunnyCreekFarm.com. Be sure to get the freshest date possible.” “One of my favorite sprouts is mung beans, because they appear in two days or less. Birds like the crunch,” says Brooks. “Sprouts are safe to leave in the cage all day because they are live foods.”

Horses When adding sprouts to a horse’s regular diet, it’s important to balance the intake. “A lot of barns feed forage three times a day. I know of a couple that feed one meal of sprouts and the other two of hay,” says Clair Thunes, Ph.D., a consulting equine nutritionist with Summit Equine Nutrition in Sacramento, California. “Several companies sell systems for large-scale growing.” The sprouts grow with matted roots in what is called a biscuit, weighing about 18 pounds. Difficult to mix with other feed, the biscuits are fed separately, roots and all. “Because of sporadic drought conditions, the idea of growing your own fodder became more popular, thinking it might make forage supply more dependable and possibly cheaper after initial startup costs,” Thunes explains. “Owners have a sense of control over what the horse eats, there’s less reliance on a supplier and the seeds are less expensive than hay. Due to moisture and nutritional differences, you can’t swap sprouts and hay pound for pound. It’s best to consult a veterinarian or nutritionist.” Sprouts contain a lot of moisture and have an inverted calcium phosphorus ratio that has to be accounted for she says. Horses enjoy barley, sunflower and flax sprouts for variety. The high moisture content may help reduce the risk of intestinal impaction and resulting colic.
