Humiston Wellness Rolfing®- Structural Method and Feldenkrais® Work When your neck or some other part of your body keeps hurting no matter what treatment has been applied to it, you will usually get lasting relief from Rolfing® or Feldenkrais® work, which systematically organizes the rest of your body so that place finally can relax. Karl Humiston was directly trained by Ida Rolf, PhD. Bonnie Humiston is a Guild Certified Feldenkrais® teacher and trainer, who studied directly with Moshe Feldenkrais for 10 years.

Fundamentally these methods work by restoring something that has been lost, by returning your body's structure and movement patterns to the "blueprint of perfection" that was given you in the beginning and the potential for which remains in you. When our work succeeds in restoring this, all kinds of problems get better because they cannot stay bad when your "blueprint" is restored. - Karl Humiston

letter from publisher


id you know that 70 percent of the immune system resides in the lining of the gut? That’s a lot of weight to uphold. “Go with your gut” originates and ends with us. Going with your gut means trusting your feelings and instincts, rather than logic or analysis, when making a decision. Going with the gut is the ultimate form of self-trust. It means really being in tune with your body and mind and paying attention when we make not only right choices, but wrong choices too. It’s all about listening, learning, growing and thinking about all the ways we can best treat our minds and bodies. The whole Natural Awakenings community thrives on helping one another learn about the methods and modalities we can use to improve our health and well-being. We aim to remove stigmas and open minds so you can find new ways to improve your life. We enjoy the idea of blending Eastern and Western approaches so they can work in synergy with one another. We have to make that merge to hedge against roadblocks like politics and greed. It’s kind of like our nation. Divided! Let’s call it “Global Gut” to go with our global warming and other facts we choose to ignore until we are staring it in the face. Trusting your gut is so important at this time. We are bombarded with split politics and health “facts.” We’re faced with choices to believe what’s true and what’s not true, what to do and what not to do. Trust your gut and find practitioners that you can trust as well. If we’re feeling unwell, the right practitioner, modality and your gut instinct can help you find the root cause of your ailments. I think it’s fair to say we can’t wait for health insurance to do it for us. We literally can and do die waiting. Unfortunately, insurance doesn’t pay for so many proven health alternatives. Preventive health measures and knowledge are all here waiting for you. You might have to reach in your pocket and you definitely have to reach down deep and find the nutrition that works for you. A healthy gut is a healthy you. I want to say thank you for all the practitioners out there that have changed their career paths and or devoted their entire lives based on their passion. Their mission is to help others heal and yet many of us remain skeptics. Why? Educate yourself and thrive. Trust your Gut…it’s always going to be there for you.

Karate and Self-Defense Training Exclusively for Women


ebbie Love, founder of Heads Up! Self Defense in Solana Beach, did not come to be a self-defense instructor out of sheer interest. “It was out of necessity; I was compelled to learn everything I could about the subject,” says this passionate self-defense instructor whose close cousin Julie Love, nearly identical in age and appearance, was the victim of a violent crime in Atlanta many years ago, which was the subject of headline news. “It took a year for Julie’s remains to be found after her disappearance. Once the facts came out of what happened to Julie, it was clear she lost her life because of one mistake—she ran out of gas. Even though it happened in one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in Atlanta, it was a fatal mistake.” Love’s mission is to equip as many women as possible with the skills required to protect themselves against assault and rape. “Heads Up! is the first to tackle the subject of casual or acquaintance sexual assault. We teach girls what it is, what it looks like and how to stop it,” she affirms. “We have developed ways for girls and women to neutralize these encounters and stop this behavior in its tracks and at the same time send a powerful message to the other person that says, ‘never again.’ Every young woman heading into college should seek me out about campus safety." The cost for the classes is $150 a month, which includes three 90-minute classes per week plus free admission to any self-defense classes held at the dojo/studio.

Chronic Disease Breakthrough


iane E Lohmeyer, owner of DEL Tours, is excited to announce her upcoming Bali and Beyond Tour taking place this October. “There’s no place on earth like Bali—it’s truly magical,” affirms this passionate world traveler. “Bali touches your soul and it always leaves you richer for the experience. It’s lush and gentle, alive and vibrant, warm and welcoming all at the same time. It’s simply a spicy form of paradise.” Travelers can choose a 7-night/8-day tour from October 23 to 30, or the 10-night/11-day tour from October 23 to November 2. Those interested in staying longer and exploring can join any of the add-on tours including a trip to Singapore, Vietnam, Hong Kong and Cambodia. Lohmeyer created her international tour business with the desire to provide luxury experiences at deluxe prices. “As a sole proprietor, I have almost no overhead driving up my costs and a large network of providers I tap into for each carefully crafted itinerary. I will be travelling along making sure every detail is taken care of so that you can enjoy your dream vacation with peace of mind.” Other upcoming excursions include an Africa trip scheduled for February 2020 and a trip to the Amazon, Peru and Ecuador in August 2020. “I can also create private custom tours catering to a client’s specific needs and desires,” she adds.

edridden and in excruciating pain for nearly a decade, Jeanette Orona bravely battled the gram-negative bacteria Borrelia burgdorferi that causes chronic Lyme disease. She’s not alone. Renowned chronic disease researcher Dr. Judy Mikovits stated that between 5 to 10 million cases of Lyme disease exist and there are one million new cases each year. The CDC explains chronic disease as, “…conditions that last one year or more and require ongoing medical attention or limit activities of daily living or both.” It represents $3.3 trillion in annual health care costs. The National Institutes of Health states Gram-negative bacteria is, “…now resistant to many, most, or all available treatments resulting in increased illness and death from bacterial infections.” Orona’s journey led her to a Native American elder’s wellness center. “There, I was introduced to non-psychotropic MyShroom, non-psychotropic cannabis and Lumigence personalized bioelectric frequency healing,” she says. “Within two months, I went from bedridden to driving my car.” While she cannot state that she is “cured,” she can say that she is “symptom-free.” In 2018, Orona traded “warrior” for “conqueror” of chronic Lyme disease. She founded as a resource for people living with chronic disease. Her weekly Q&A calls feature mycology experts and how mushroom chemistry kills Gram-negative bacteria; cannabis experts and the endocannabinoid system’s role in mammalian homeostasis; and frequency experts including physicists and engineers who can explain ATP and bioelectric fields. Science and cooking also collide on Wellness4Lyme’s Q&A calls. “Culinary delights include supercharged smoothies that provide 30 percent more oxygen uptake,” says Orona, who ensures that the nutritious recipes shared on the calls are so delicious that even children love to eat them.

Karate and Self-Defense Training for Women at Heads Up! in Solana Beach


’ve always loved the discipline of the martial arts—from the self-defense aspect to the amazing workout. What I haven’t always loved was feeling intimidated in a martial arts class with a group of mixed gender and abilities. Enter Heads Up! Debbie Love offers up women only karate and self-defense training. It’s exactly what I have been seeking. There is no better time than now to honor women’s empowerment with just that—power. This includes the mental, spiritual and physical power needed to help protect ourselves and our beloved sisters, mothers, cousins, friends and colleagues. I’ve been fortunate enough to take private lessons with Love, a five-foot-tall black belt, who initially learned the martial arts in a full room of men so she could protect a world full of women. And that is exactly what she is doing. Help her mission and help protect all the females in your life. Self-defense should be a mindset and learned early on, so it becomes ingrained in us early on. You’ll love taking classes at Heads Up! Love’s authenticity, passion and patience help make a challenging art a mindful experience. I always leave invigorated and, yes, wanting every woman to take her classes and attend her lectures. You can read more about Love and her mission in the news brief on page 8 and on her website. However, the real essence of Love’s powerful passion comes from meeting her in person. For more information, call 760-455-8562 or visit

New Book Combines Ancient Practices with Latest Science


row A New Body: How SPIRIT and Power Plant NUTRIENTS Can Transform Your Health, by Alberto Villoldo, Ph.D., provides advice on how shamanic practices, cutting-edge science, detox strategies and power-plant foods can activate our cells’ ability to regenerate and repair. The book, available beginning March 12, includes a foreword by Christiane Northrup, M.D. “We all started out from an egg and a sperm that met and fused in an environment conducive to development,” says Villoldo of the foundation for his program. “As cells quickly divided, multiplied and differentiated into specific types of cells, they followed careful biological instructions that are stored deep within our DNA. Our fully developed bodies can access and switch on those same coded instructions—but first, we need to prepare the environment.” Villoldo, who formerly directed the Biological Self-Regulation Lab as a clinical professor at San Francisco State University, has studied the healing practices of Amazon and Andean shamans for 25 years. He previously co-authored A Shaman’s Miraculous Tools for Healing with Anne E. O’Neill, and has also written several other books.

Mankind Dispensary Caters to Cannabis Curious by Erin Lehn Floresca


athy Bliss, Director of Community Outreach for Mankind Cannabis, a fully licensed adult recreational and medical cannabis dispensary, loves that her focus at Mankind is to inspire, build community and educate others on the many health perks of cannabis. “Every day, more and more people are becoming cannabis curious and discovering the vast array of benefits this amazing plant has for both body and mind. As Community Outreach Director, I’m always out there talking to people. Did you know that the largest growing population seeking out cannabis is the 55 and older crowd? While a lot of them used marijuana recreationally in their youth, they’re now interested in it for health reasons,” explains Bliss, a former professional ice skater. “I was so focused on being an athlete in my teens and twenties that I totally missed the boat on the recreational marijuana scene. By the time I discovered cannabis, I was looking at it from a plant medicine perspective.” Bliss shares that she knows that newbies and those rediscovering the world of cannabis can find it hard to navigate. “I totally understand. In 2008, My husband and I, both holistic health advocates and curious about the health benefits of cannabis, went into a dispensary and walked out with an edible. Unfortunately, we weren’t instructed on how to use it and I ended up taking way too much for my body. It was a really rough night,” she recalls. That’s why she loves that Mankind Cannabis has made it part of their mission to educate the community on cannabis use. After her experience with the edible, Bliss dove into educating herself on cannabis and, through experimentation, discovered ways to ingest the plant that worked best for her body. About a year later, when her son, James Schmachten-

berger, co-owner of Mankind Cannabis, suggested his family consider medical marijuana as a possible career path, she and her husband agreed. The trio opened their first medical marijuana business and have been enthusiastic supporters of the movement ever since. Now that she’s been in the industry for a decade, Bliss is even more convinced of this plant medicine’s remarkable health-promoting abilities.  “Cannabis can help counteract so many medical issues and I have the amazing opportunity to help educate people who are dealing with conditions like epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, anxiety and depression. I love talking to moms with kids who have cancer and autism and hearing how cannabis drastically improves their children’s lives. I also enjoy talking to nurses and educating them on how and why cannabis works so well for so many different conditions.” With so many products and strains to choose from, Bliss knows that it can be a challenge to find the right match. Her advice? “Try a little bit of a lot of different things until you find the strains that work for your body,” she affirms. “Everybody is unique, so it’s important to find out what works for you. An edible might be a more ideal fit for someone older or a kid with autism. If you’re in pain, one hit off of a vape pen and your pain disappears. You can find strains that keep you awake

or relax you. You have so many different options based on your individual needs at the time.” Bliss recommends taking a lot of notes while you journey to find what works best for you. “Become a biohacker,” she suggests. “And by all means, come in and check out our style. We love welcoming customers into our shop. Come in and talk to our consultants. We have an amazing amount of product and variety and we’re always happy to help you find something that works for you. Our shop is interactive, open, friendly, and everything is out-in-the-open so you can touch the products yourself. Ask as “Take a Veteran Out to many queslunch” with Sean Major. tions as you like and stay as long as you like. We’re a very non-intimidating shop and love to be of service.” As part of her mission to educate the public, Bliss would be remiss to not mention Mankind Cannabis’s upcoming podcast. “I’m really excited about it. It will be a chance for me to talk directly to the community about their health issues. I can interview the moms whose kids are experiencing relief with their health challenges so that other parents can hear their perspectives. I want it to be an open forum and will invite input from the community on topics you’d like to see covered or people you’d like to have interviewed. It’s just another wonderful way we can all get to know more about this wonderful plant medicine.” Bliss also recommends watching the free documentary film, Marijuana Movie which can be found online at “My son, James, was the executive producer on this fantastic film. I highly suggest it for those cannabis curious folks who would like some extra assurance that consuming marijuana is okay,” she says. Mankind Cannabis is located at 7128 Miramar Rd., Ste. 10, in San Diego. Open daily from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. For more information, call 855-MAN-KIND or visit See ad, page 23.

Five Strategies for Better Health by Melinda Hemmelgarn


pringtime brings a desire to clean up our diets and refresh our plates. Here are five worthy strategies for upgrading nutrition and greeting the season with a renewed sense of well-being. n Ditch dieting. According to the Boston Medical Center, an estimated 45 million Americans go on a diet each year and spend more than $30 billion annually on weightloss products. Despite this hefty investment, restrictive diets don’t work, says Sandra Aamodt, a neuroscientist based in northern California. Aamodt co-presented the Neurobiology of Dieting: Evidence for Improving Mental Health With a Self-Care Approach session at the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND) annual meeting last October in Washington, D.C. “Diets are not harmless,” Aamodt explains. “They create stress, persistent hunger, trigger eating disorders such as binge eating and even make people fatter over time.” It’s better to take a kinder approach, says Rebecca Scritchfield, a Washington, D.C.-based registered dietitian and Aamodt’s co-presenter. Scritchfield is the author of Body Kindness: Transform Your Health From the Inside Out – and Never Say Diet Again. She teaches her clients to value their self-worth regardless of body size,

practice mindful eating and focus on overall self-care: Think enjoyable physical activity, adequate sleep and positive self-talk. Mindful eating includes paying attention to thoughts and feelings that trigger eating such as hunger, but also stress, boredom and loneliness, says California-based registered dietitian Andrea Lieberstein, who wrote Well Nourished: Mindful Practices to Heal Your Relationship with Food, Feed Your Whole Self, and End Overeating. She encourages clients to identify voids in their lives and fill them with healthy relationships and pleasurable activities, rather than food. The “health at any size” philosophy is accepted by a growing number of health and nutrition experts, including Annie Kay, a registered dietitian and registered yoga therapist at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. She’s the author of Every Bite is Divine: The Balanced Approach to Enjoying Eating, Feeling Healthy and Happy, and Getting to a Weight That’s Natural for You. Kay injects compassion into her work, promoting stress reduction, conscious eating and finding peace for individuals to reach their natural weight. n Learn how to cook and garden. The best dietary upgrade starts in our own kitchens, where the cook controls

the ingredients. Home cooking with fresh, whole foods is at the heart of feeding ourselves well. Processed food manufacturers would like us to equate cooking with drudgery or think that cooking takes too much time, yet this couldn’t be further from the truth. Tanmeet Sethi, an integrative physician at the Swedish Cherry Hill Family Medicine Residency, in Seattle, established a culinary medicine program that includes both cooking and gardening classes. Sethi says, “Eating is sacred; it’s our connection to the earth.” She also believes there is wisdom in the way food has been traditionally cooked. Sethi recommends a Mediterranean eating pattern for its power to reduce depression and ward off chronic diseases. She also promotes the “herb and spice pharmacy” to reduce inflammation and treat and prevent disease. For example, she says, “Ginger and turmeric both act on the same biochemical pathways as anti-inflammatory medicines.” Cooking and eating together as a family has multiple benefits, too, improving children’s nutrition, self-esteem and school performance. Best of all, says Sethi, “Family meals allow us to connect with the people we love.” Put away phones, turn off screens and truly tune in to each other. Connecting to the earth through gardening also improves our health, according to both Wendy Demark-Wahnefried, a registered dietitian and associate director of the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s Comprehensive Cancer Center, and Diana Dyer, a Michigan-based organic farmer, registered dietitian and author of A Dietitian’s Cancer Story: Information & Inspiration for Recovery & Healing. They promote gardening as a way to interact with nature, reduce stress and improve quality of life. With just a small patch of soil, home and community gardens provide a ready source of affordable, fresh and nutritious vegetables and herbs.


flooding create obvious challenges to growing crops, but new research also shows how increasing levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere decreases the nutritional quality of food, leading to lower levels of protein and minerals. One solution is to change the way we farm and eat. For example, Jennifer Jay, Ph.D., a professor of environmental engineering in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at the University of California Los Angeles, calculated the carbon footprints and climate impacts of a variety of food choices. In general, she says, the fewer animal products in our diets, the lower the greenhouse gas impact. But meat and other animal products need not be totally off the table. Simply choose smaller portions and when possible, purchase local pasture-raised products produced without antibiotics and hormones. Organic food production introduces less fertilizers, pesticides, antibiotic-resistant bacteria and greenhouse gases into our environment. So, what’s best for the planet is best for us. Jay provides easy, plant-based and planet-friendly recipes at n Support gut health. Around 400 B.C., Hippocrates said, “Bad digestion is the root of all evil.� Fast forward through the centuries to today, and one of the hottest areas of research in health, medicine and nutrition revolves around the microbiome; more specifically, the community of microorganisms living in the gut. “Seventy percent of our immune system is in the lining of the gut,� explains Sethi, which is why she advises,“Feed the bacteria in your gut real food.� Similarly, Teresa Martin, a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator based in Bend, Oregon, emphasizes the value of unprocessed, high-fiber, organic plant foods to nourish gut bacteria and maintain microbial balance. Speaking at the same recent meeting, Martin described multiple ways gut bacteria influence our physical and mental health, including nutrient absorption, body weight and blood sugar control, bone density, inflammation and mood. Microbes in the colon digest and ferment plant fibers into short-chain fatty acids, which help ensure a thick, healthy, intestinal mucus lining. Martin notes, “When we don’t eat enough plants, we can’t make enough short-chain fatty acids,� which are key to gut-brain crosstalk and control of appetite and mood. Martin recommends eating 35 to 50 grams of fiber per day from food, not supplements. She also warns against “microbial assassins� such as antibiotics, processed meats, high-fat diets, refined carbohydrates, added sugars and artificial sweeteners, plus the emulsifiers polysorbate 80 and carboxymethylcellulose, which are commonly added to foods like ice cream and baked goods to improve texture and extend shelf life. All contribute to microbial imbalance, the loss of microbial diversity and leaky gut—the inability to keep offending food compounds like gluten and intact milk protein out of the bloodstream—leading to food intolerance, inflammation and autoimmune disorders. Registered dietitian Brenda Davis, of British Columbia, also recommends whole-food, plant-based diets to reverse Type 2

Allowing the body at least 12 hours without food intake benefits gut microbial diversity, says Martin. Intermittent fasting, or eating patterns in which no or few calories are consumed between 12 to 16 hours, can protect against a variety of metabolic diseases such as Type 2 diabetes, perhaps in part due to the effect on gut microbes. Dorothy Sears, associate professor of medicine and associate director of the Center for Circadian Biology at the University of California, San Diego, studied the effect of intermittent fasting, or “time-

restricted feeding”, on the risk of breast cancer recurrence. In a study of more than 2,300 breast cancer survivors, Sears discovered the women that fasted for at least 13 hours a day reduced breast cancer recurrence by 36 percent, regardless of other dietary factors. Putting this into practice, if the last meal of the day ends at 6 p.m., the first meal of the next day would not begin before 7 a.m. In addition to this “prolonged nightly fasting,” Sears says that when we eat affects the way our bodies handle calories. She recommends eating during the first half of the day, when the sun is up and our enzyme and hormone systems are best able to handle calories, control blood sugar and body weight.

diabetes. She developed a “whole-grain hierarchy” to identify the most gut-friendly, least-processed grains, including cracked oats, brown rice, barley, buckwheat, sprouted grain, wheat berries and kamut. Along with beans, legumes, nuts, seeds, fruits and vegetables, Davis says these foods nourish beneficial gut microbes and reduce inflammation.
