ain is different for everyone. It comes in many forms and for a multitude of reasons. Whether it be physical or emotional, one common thread that ties us all together is that we’ve experienced pain at one time or another. For most of us, pain subsides. We get better, we heal, we overcome. However, many people suffer from chronic pain, which unfortunately becomes part of everyday life—often with no clear solution or cure. Doctors are quick to prescribe prescription drugs to ease the aches, but fail to find and treat the root cause of the pain. As Melissa Cady, author of Paindemic: A Practical and Holistic Look at Chronic Pain, the Medical System, and the antiPAIN Lifestyle, says, “Personalized medicine is an art that advocates for Holly Baker, publisher the patient, not the pocket or convenience of the medical system.” This rings true regarding both physical and mental pain. Carol Henricks, owner of NorthStar Hyperbaric, uses hyperbaric oxygen therapy to help veterans in varying types of pain. On page 11, learn about her newly opened Patriot Clinic—free to those veterans who are looking for relief from PTSD or physical pain. While there may not be a magical cure-all, there are more options than people know about, and experts in the Tucson area are eager to help us all feel better and get our lives back from chronic pain. On page 20, we’ll explore chronic pain overall, then on page 24, hear from some local practitioners who want to help you get back to being your best. Maybe that mystery cure you’ve been hoping for is held in this very magazine. You’re only pages away from relief! To better health every day,

newsbriefs Better Business with Barter Tucson

D

ale and Barbara Hulvey, administrators at Barter Tucson, help businesses gain clients/customers who stay with them for the life of the company. Through Barter Tucson, customer acquisition cost is lowered and greater customer retention is attained. “Unlike the cash world, where you have to hunt and pay for every lead and potential sale through the expenditure of time, effort and money, your barter business is ‘pushed’ to you through the efforts of Barter Tucson, with us as your trade brokers,” says Barbara. “You’re fishing where the fish are—and that’s quite a difference.” According to the Hulveys, mail order catalog companies spend millions of dollars and gain a repeat customer less than 50 percent of the time. “In the Barter Tucson world, the percentage of first-time buyers returning is over 95 percent, because every one of our members operate in their own best interests. Our exchange rewards one for doing business in this manner, i.e. buying products and services at barter cost—always the best and most economical way to make a purchase,” explains Dale. “So a trade client is a core customer that advertises for you by word of mouth and creates you cash customers. They’ll always frequent your establishment if all things are equal.” For more information, call 520-909-9200, email Office.BarterTucson@gmail.com or visit BarterTucson.com. See ad, page 17.

ith 25 years of experience, Lynne Namka offers shamanic journeying to clients in the Tucson area. American shamanism is a set of ancient healing practices to engage the soul by invoking Spirit and guides. In an altered state of consciousness, one goes on a spiritual journey to travel in other dimensions where healing work can be accomplished and resolve issues of the soul. Shamanistic work may involve doing an extraction of a negative energy that doesn’t belong in a person and then calling in higher energies of the highest vibration for healing. Namka can release entities, ghosts or other non-physical beings. “With the help of your guides, we can reclaim your personal power by cutting cords from people who steal your energy,” explains Namka. “I can help recalibrate your four major energy gates to decrease Lynne Namka excess energy rushing to the head, creating racing thoughts and anxiety.” With Divine Guidance, she can remove shame energies that came with sexual or physical abuse and integrate dissociated child parts. Namka does past life regression and healing to address issues in clients’ current lives. According to her, shamanism is not a psychological process but complements psychotherapy to help achieve one’s highest healing. For more information, visit TucsonShaman.com. See ad, page 28.

T

Arcturian Healing Method with Gene Ang

G

ene Ang, Ph.D., will present a weekend workshop, Arcturian Healing Method Level 1: The Arcturian Healing Light, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., July 29 and 30, in Tucson. This Gene Ang divine healing method is a set of new healing tools and cosmic energies inspired by higher beings from the star system Arcturus. Attendees will be attuned to the Arcturian Healing Light (AHL), a form of light, energy and information meant to accelerate a person’s evolution. Because of the condensed nature of the information presented in the class, it is highly recommended to have attended the Quantum Spoon Bending Level I course previous to taking this class, which will be held from 6:30 to 9 p.m., July 28. Some of the issues the AHL can address include: life path alignment, life functioning upgrade, physical healing, emotional healing, mental healing and spiritual healing. AHL can be used as a stand-alone healing modality or combined with an existing healing practice. Ang has a healing practice based in Thousand Oaks, California and sees clients for a number of energy healing and shamanic healing practices. He teaches seminars around the world that focus on the integration of science, spirituality and healing.

he documentary film, The Phenomenon of Healing – The Worldwide Activities of the Bruno Groening Circle of Friends, which shows that healing of incurable ailments on the spiritual path is possible after all, will be shown from 2 to 8 p.m., June 17 at the Unity of Tucson Annex. Thanks to extraordinary healings, Bruno Groening made headlines around the world in the 1950s. When he died in 1959, many assumed this phenomenon had ended. Even today, by following his teaching, people are experiencing many medically inexplicable healings. For nine years, director and screenwriter Thomas Eich Bruno Groening and his team worked on the movie’s production. The crew traveled to all continents and interviewed Bruno Groening friends from 35 countries. Twenty medically documented healing reports are featured in the film. Through Groening, Grete Haeusler personally experienced healing of three incurable ailments. To Haeusler’s surprise, she noticed that healings occurred even after 1959. In 1979, she founded the Bruno Groening Circle of Friends. In 1992, doctors and other healing practitioners founded the Medical Scientific Group. Its task is to investigate reported healings, and to verify and document them using corresponding reports from independent physicians. Members hold healing lectures all over the world. Location: 3617 N. Camino Blanco, Tucson. For more information, call 520-904-4801, email WeissmaE@email.arizona.edu or visit bruno-groening-film.org.

Three Keys to Alzheimer’s Prevention

bout 5.4 million Americans have Alzheimer’s disease. The first stage can go 10 to 20 years before being diagnosed, but there are some very early warning signs that are associated with developing the disease. The keys to prevention are a diet low in sugar, lots of movement and chiropractic care for a relaxed brain and body. Obesity, diabetes, hypertension and cholesterol are all associated with an increased risk of getting Alzheimer’s. The average American gets three times the recommended amount of sugar. When we eat excess sugar, our insulin becomes worn out, which can affect glucose getting to the brain. Over time, this can contribute to the plaques and tangles (brain rot) associated with Alzheimer’s. Excess sugar is also converted to cholesterol in the liver, causing high cholesterol. Another big factor is being in a state of constant survival mode. People who have had PTSD or early childhood trauma have their nervous systems in fight-orflight mode most of the time. This state decreases oxygen flow to the brain, causing brain rot over time. The anxiety and poor sleep associated with being in survival mode also cause hypertension. People should have their brain and nerves assessed by a chiropractor trained in resetting the fight-or-flight response. Lastly, most Americans are not moving enough. Research shows that daily exercise reduces the risk of Alzheimer’s by 90 percent. Dr. Joanne Haupert, D.C., has been empowering people to their greatest health since 1998.

Laser Treatments for Holistic Oral Care

olistic oral care is focused on the highest standard of patient care with an emphasis on total body wellness. For this reason, a laser can be used for soft tissue treatment and management of a number of different oral health issues. Laser therapy not only improves oral health, but also significantly reduces the overall bacterial load present in the entire body, including plaque and tartar. • Laser therapy is commonly used to seal exposed tubules (located on the root of the tooth) that are responsible for tooth sensitivity. • Lasers can reshape gum tissue to expose healthy tooth structure and improve the appearance of a gummy smile. • A laser frenectomy is an ideal treatment option for children or adults who are tongue tied (restricted or tight frenulum) and may also help to eliminate speech impediments. • The lasers may be used for the painless and suture-free removal of benign tumors from the gums, palate, sides of cheeks and lips. • Low intensity lasers reduce pain associated with cold sores, aphthous ulcers and herpetic lesions, as well as a significantly minimizing healing time. • Lasers in dentistry have been used successfully for decades and are an excellent tool in the overall health of oral tissues. The painless laser treatment only takes about five to 10 minutes. Medicine Wheel Dental, in Tucson, recently added laser therapy as another tool to improve the general health of their patients.

LED Light Therapy

L

ike many other innovations we now take for granted, like radial tires, enriched baby foods and memory foam, light-emitting diodes, or LED lights, and the knowledge of their potential benefits, can trace their origins to the NASA space program. Two primary concerns prompted early research into the properties of the different color wavelengths of natural sunlight—growing plants in space and healing humans on earth. Light is made up of different frequency bands divided into what we see as colors. When we see a rainbow or light refracted through a crystal prism, we know that sunlight contains all colors, ranging from ultraviolet (UV) (the shortest wavelength at less than 400 nanometers), up through red (the longest we can see at 750 nm) and infrared (the longest at above 760 nm), which is beyond the ability of the human eye to detect. Each color penetrates human skin at different depths according to its wavelength, with UV barely entering the epidermis and infrared able to reach muscle. All of the colors have different properties, but blue, red and infrared are the ones most commonly harnessed for their health benefits. Blue light has an antimicrobial effect and so is commonly used to treat acne-prone skin in an effort to control the Propionibacterium acnes bacteria responsible for most breakouts. In this age of antibiotic resistance, there is also ongoing research to study what other infections may be prevented with blue light therapy. Red LED has become the darling of skin therapists because of its ability to increase circulation and stimulate collagen and elastin production in the dermis, which improves the skin’s firmness and elasticity, thereby reducing wrinkles. To obtain visible results, repeated exposure to the light source is required, but once achieved, fewer sessions are necessary to maintain the improvement. Infrared LED treatment has become a commonly used physical therapy tool to deliver healing energy to deeper tissues, reducing pain and inflammation and speeding recovery after injury or surgery. Infrared therapy works to allow the body to absorb this beneficial spectrum of light on a cellular level, addressing many health conditions at their root cause, while operating in a totally noninvasive manner. Not only are professional grade LED devices available, but devices suitable for home use can also be easily purchased.

Clarity for Expiration Dates on Food

SpeedKingz/Shutterstock.com

Many Americans have been confused by the “Sell By” labels on groceries for 40 years. Now, the Food Marketing Institute and the Grocery Manufacturers Association, the two largest industry trade groups, are adopting voluntary standardized regulations to clarify. Instead of using up to 10 different phrases to communicate safety, they have settled on just two: “Use By”, a safety designation to indicate when perishable foods are no longer good; and “Best if Used By”, an estimate of when the manufacturer thinks the product should be consumed for peak flavor. Studies show that consumers generally believe the current labels all signal whether a product is safe to eat, and that it will still be okay well after its so-called expiration date. At the same time, prematurely tossed groceries dominate landfills and produce greenhouse gas emissions. The U.S. Department of Agriculture and a coalition of environmental groups have been urging the industry to clear this up. The change is scheduled to take hold in July 2018.

Autonomous Autos

Driverless Cars Promise Safety and Savings Hyundai demonstrated its Ioniq autonomous, or driverless, hybrid car concept at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show, demonstrating that such vehicles— equipped with sophisticated sensors, GPS and computers—could be for sale within five to seven years. Safety is paramount. Estimates for the U.S., based on a 2013 Eco Center for Transportation study, projected that if 90 percent of vehicles were autonomous, the number of driving-related deaths would plummet from an annual 32,400 to approximately 11,300. “Drivers are excited that driverless cars will offer 90 percent fewer U.S. traffic accidents, 40 percent lower insurance costs, the end of drunk driving accidents and newfound freedom for seniors and people with disabilities,” says Gary Shapiro, president and CEO of the Consumer Technology Association. Its 2016 report Self-Driving Vehicles: Consumer Sentiments found that nearly 75 percent of consumers surveyed like the proffered benefits. In Driverless, authors Hod Lipson and Melba Kurman highlight significant ecological benefits, including McKinsey research findings that driverless cars will yield up to 20 percent fuel savings, and a corresponding reduction in carbon dioxide emissions. Their smoother driving also extends a vehicle’s life. Ford intends to deliver a fully autonomous vehicle for ride sharing in 2021, according to Mark Fields, Ford Motor Company president and CEO. Companies such as Uber and Lyft already are testing driverless vehicles in pilot cities.


ecotip Butterfly Rescue

We watch the graceful flight of colorful butterflies and appreciate their crucial role as pollinators. Establishing butterfly gardens or accommodating them in yard plantings increases food sources radically threatened by reductions in blossom-rich landscapes due to development, intensive agriculture, insecticides and climate change. The National Wildlife Federation (nwf.org) reports that butterflies are particularly attracted to red, yellow, orange, pink and purple blossoms that are flat-topped or clustered for landing or hovering, with short flower tubes that present easy access to nectar. Regional planting. In the Southeast, goldenrod, with its arching, yellow flowers, appeals to Buckeye species. Tiger Wing, Dainty Sulphur and Malachite lead the way in Florida. Some other suitable plants and trees for attracting butterflies, according to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildlife Center (Wildflower.org) are yarrows, red and white baneberries, and red, scarlet and soft maples in the Northeast; Butterfly and Honey daisies, Indian Mallow, American Century and Husiache, in the Midwest; and Giant, Ground, Subalpine and Noble firs, Vine Maple and Columbian Monkshoods in the Northwest. Inspiring individual efforts. Care2.com reports that California Academy of Sciences aquatic biologist Tim Wong cultivated California Pipevine plants in his backyard butterfly home four years ago upon learning that it is the primary food for California Pipevine Swallowtails in the San Francisco area. Starting with just 20 caterpillars, he was able to donate thousands of the swallowtails to the San Francisco Botanical Gardens last year and has grown more than 200 plants. Milkweed. Populations of iconic Monarch butterflies have plummeted 90 percent in the past 20 years, reports the National Wildlife Federation, primarily due to decline of 12 native milkweed species. They need support for their annual 2,000-plus-mile migration from the U.S. Northeast and Canada to central Mexico and back. Joyce Samsel, curator of the Florida Native Butterfly Society (FloridaNativeButterflies. org), notes that the Florida Monarch stays south of Tampa year-round.

On Fatherhood The Lifelong Lessons of Being a Dad EpicStockMedia/Shutterstock.com

by Ben Greenman

W

hat is being a father? It’s, at least in part, about beginning. It is rejuvenating to locate ourself near the start of a child’s life. There are so many chances to get it right. The thought that we might also get it wrong flits across our mind, but it’s gone before we can even shiver at its presence. It’s also about returning to that question again and again, each time failing to acquire additional insight. “What isn’t being a father?” is a better question. Being a father isn’t indifference, but neither is it a steady stream of calm wisdom or a place of consistent self-control or a clearly delineated set of exercises engineered to help produce self-knowledge in offspring. Bridges are

engineered. We stare into our little one’s eyes, beaming thoughts that we hope are received, translated and appreciated, waiting for a beam to come back to us. Child rearing is worked toward, clumsily, imperfectly, with a deep and near religious faith in trial and error. Children are refined over time with the assistance of many imperfect philosophies. When our second child opted in, my wife and I compared baby pictures of the two boys. “They look different,” I said. “That’s not why I’m looking at them,” she said. “I want to remember this.” I remember looking at the pictures with her only because she has told me about it. If, in part, fatherhood is remembering things that did not exactly happen, it

is also forgetting things that did happen, some transformative to a degree that I could not have imagined five seconds before they occurred. Afterwards, I knew I would never be the same again. But I was. As children grow, they are not the same again. Parenting boys instead of babies is already a grand departure from everything I have learned up until now and I am just coming to see that it will always be this way. Recently, in trying to figure out when a man that is not a father becomes a man that is a father, I remarked to my sons, “Even though I know being a father has changed me forever, I remember certain things that happened, but not as many as I would have thought.” My older son explained, “Maybe it’s because you are thinking of us more than yourself. Maybe you want time to pass so we can get to the next thing in our lives.” My younger son zeroed in, “The problem is that you think it’s parenting when really it’s childing.” He’s right. What is being a father? It’s letting someone else be a child. It’s suffering through certain kinds of abstract pain so that they don’t. It’s bearing the brunt of disappointments so that they can go on feeling invincible. It’s teaching how to forget as much as it is teaching how to remember… but it is still very near the beginning.

“QIGONG is a very positive natural modality we are proud to offer for our men and women who served our country.” Alina Mayo, MD – Veteran’s Hospital – Bay Pines, FL

Why do Veterans Love QIGONG? by Qigong Practitioner Jeff Primack Author Jeff Primack has practiced Qigong for 20 years and trains thousands of people annually at Qi Revolution seminars held across the United States.

Q

igong helps overcome trauma with an “energetic solution” as opposed to pharmaceutical or psychological approaches. A Qigong Master I studied with was imprisoned by the Chinese government and while in a jail cell he practiced Qigong for many years and he was strengthened. At age 80 he still practices! The postures develop a “magnetic energy” that gives peace, increased faith and creates a tangible increase in energy on command. Doctor Alina Mayo, MD of the VA Hospital in Bay Pines, Florida says Qigong with their instructors has been well received. When veterans do Qi breathing, trust issues and whether the teacher is also a vet becomes less important. Old mind patterns are temporarily bypassed as the feeling of Qi is strong enough to give a natural high. Many vets report this has been invaluable to replace harmful ad-

dictions. Skeptical views on Qi are instantly overcome by the tangible waves of vibration that dissolve tension and relax tight muscles. Todd Nichols is a brave teacher sharing “Breath Empowerment” with more than 1,000 veterans. Sometimes in lock down facilities where chairs are held down with bags of sand it can be challenging to lead Qigong breathing. Frequent outbursts and flickering florescent lights compound the difficulties of teaching in the VA buildings themselves. Veterans are guarded and apprehensive. Todd draws them in and challenges them to take huge breaths, swallow it and hold it in their belly. A crammed room becomes momentarily silent, smiles and then scattered giggles. All it takes is their breathing participation and it works. Traumatic memories are not erased, yet their grip on muscles

and mind is temporarily lessened long enough for veterans to realize they have control over their mind with their breath. Our technique “9-Breath Method” oxygenates to the core creating a wave of peace that shuts down over-thinking. Breath Training is the best thing veterans can use to regulate stress without drugs. Qi Revolution is the event in which most people first encounter us. When hundreds of people do Qigong in one room a profound group energy is created. It quickens people’s ability to feel Qi and progress. The Qi Revolution conference pricing is affordable and free of vendors to maintain integrity and focus at our trainings. The Qi Revolution comes to the Tucson Convention Center August 18 through 20. Cost: $149 for three days. Free for veterans.

Go Natural for Effective Relief

Such statistics expose the magnitude of the problem of chronic pain. “It’s daunting, but there are many natural ways to address it that are inexpensive, effective and with what I call side benefits rather than negative side effects,” says Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum, of Kona, Hawaii, author of the smartphone app Cures A-Z. Complementary, integrative or functional medicine, all names for a holistic approach to health care, offer a comforting wealth of gentle ways to address chronic pain, most of which the vast majority of conventional medical doctors are unaware, says Daniel Cher-

CHRONIC PAIN

Natural Ways to Feel Much Better by Kathleen Barnes

ccording to the National Center for Health Statistics, 25 percent of Americans, or 76.2 million, are suffering from pain that lasts more than 24 hours at this very moment: Ouch! Lower back pain alone keeps Americans from going to work a total of 149 million days each year, costing the U.S. economy $100 to $200 billion, reports the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Other common types of chronic pain affect musculoskeletal tissues, knees, hips or the neck. Migraines and severe headaches plague 16.6 percent of adults over 18, per a National Health and Nutrition Survey. Neurological discomfort can reach as high as 12.4 percent, estimates a study from the Mayo Clinic, in Rochester, Minnesota. Even visceral or organ pain associated with heart disease, cancer and pelvic

diseases occur in at least 20 percent of the global population, according to the International Association for the Study of Pain, in Seattle. If chronic pain is affecting you, you feel it and want relief—right now.  

Watch Out for Opioids

Unfortunately, conventional medicine often has little to offer most pain patients. Even for something as pervasive as back pain, surgery and steroid injections are usually an unsatisfactory first line of defense, having mixed results at best, seconded by prescriptions for addictive opioid painkillers. Dr. Nora D. Vokov, director of the National Institute of Drug Abuse, told the U.S. Senate Caucus on International Narcotics Control in 2014 that there were an estimated 2.1 million people in the U.S. suffering from substance abuse disorders

kin, Ph.D., senior investigator emeritus with the Group Health Research Institute, at the University of Washington, in Seattle. “Effective natural treatments include yoga, acupuncture, chiropractic, meditation, lifestyle changes and exercise,” notes Cherkin. “But since they’re not in most doctors’ medical training or learned repertoire for pain relief, patients aren’t offered the opportunity to try them.”

What Helps Relieve Pain

Here are just some of the many natural and affordable forms of pain relief.

Try the Yass method: Mitchell Yass, Ph.D., of St. John’s, Florida, author of The Pain Cure Rx, is busting the myth that musculoskeletal pain is often caused by osteoarthritis. “Arthritis or joint deterioration is rarely the cause


Yogic Breathing Brings Relief ZephyrMedia/Shutterstock.com

of joint pain,” says Yass. He points out that 90 percent of people over 60 have herniated discs, but no associated pain. Yass treats patients based on his observation that in up to 98 percent of the cases he sees, weak muscles are the underlying cause of joint pain, and strengthening them provides relief. He says his prescribed exercises are usually effective in days or a few weeks.   “Pain is an indication of tissue in distress. For example, pain in the shoulder area is often an impingement of the bicep,” he says. His prescription is strengthening exercises using hand weights for the trapezoid, tricep and serratus anterior muscles. His book suggests a detailed self-diagnosis program and the necessary exercises to strengthen muscles and relieve joint pain (more at Tinyurl.com/YassIntroInfo).

A

n ancient yogic breathing practice, or pranayama, is used to rebalance the autonomic nervous system. Dr. Maud Nerman strongly recommends alternate nostril breathing for those that experience chronic pain caused by physical or emotional trauma. Here’s a basic practice: n After folding the middle two fingers of the right hand down, press the right nostril closed. n Inhale to the count of four. n Hold both nostrils closed for a count of eight. n Release the right nostril and exhale to a count of eight. n Repeat on the other side. n Continue for at least three minutes, alternating sides throughout.

Address underlying trauma: Osteopath Maud Nerman, of Novato, California, author of Healing Pain and Injury, has broad experience in treating neurological problems and brain injuries and often focuses on physical and emotional trauma as an underlying cause of chronic pain. She explains that the autonomic nervous system that directs unconscious body functions like breathing, digestion and heartbeat is interrupted by such trauma. “Trauma literally shocks the nervous system,” she says. “The body cannot turn off the ‘fight-or-flight’ reaction, causing a firestorm of inflammation that can lead to a variety of serious diseases, overwhelming the body’s ability to manage its own healing.” Her work has showed how readjusting the body, restoring breathing and reactivating the autonomic nervous system can provide relief in short order.

Consider lifestyle, diet and supplements: “Pain is like the ‘check oil’ light on a car’s dashboard. It signals that something needs attention,” says Teitelbaum, author of Pain Free 1-2-3. “If the oil light goes on, putting a Band-Aid over it or smashing it with a hammer won’t help.” Teitelbaum recommends an energy optimization approach he dubs SHINE that addresses underlying causes of chronic pain that has worked for 91 percent of the people he’s treated for fibromyalgia and muscle pain.

apping, or Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), soothes the body by turning off the “fight or flight” stress response that can cause inflammation and worsen pain, according to Tapping Solutions founder Nick Ortner, of Newtown, Connecticut. Here’s how to do it:

1 2 3

Identify the problem (e.g., pain in back of neck). Rate the intensity of feelings about the problem on a scale of one to 10.

Compose a statement about it (e.g., “Even though I have intense neck pain today, I deeply and completely accept myself”).

4

Using one or two fingers on one hand, tap the “karate chop” area on the outer edge of the other hand while repeating the statement three times.

5

While repeating, e.g., “intense neck pain,” using firm, but gentle pressure, use either two or four fingers to tap these areas, on either side, five to seven times in sequences as follows: * side of eyebrow * side of eye * under eye

natural awakenings

* under nose * chin * inner collarbone * under arm * top of head

Refocus on the original problem and rate its intensity. Restate what you’re feeling, as needed. Source: The Tapping Solution for Pain Relief, by Nick Ortner; instructional video at Tinyurl.com/JessicaOrtnerTapping.


Up to now, the EFT research is positive. One study from the Energy Medicine University, in Mill Valley, California, found it helped people with chronic pain (some coping with severe fatigue and fibromyalgia) feel physically and emotionally better in as little as a month; another from the Foundation for Epigenetic Medicine, in Santa Rosa, California, showed substantially reduced trauma in institutionalized abused teenagers after just one EFT session.

Meditation vs. Medication: Meditation may not resolve the underlying cause of chronic pain, but research from the University of Alabama demonstrates it can interrupt pain signals to the brain. It’s at least as effective as opioid painkillers in relieving chronic pain, according to a study led by Cherkin at the University of Washington. His team’s 342 subjects that had experienced back pain weekly for at least a year were offered either eight meditation and yoga classes, eight cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) sessions or just keeping up their own regular daily routines that did not include yoga and meditation. The results, recently published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, confirm what numerous other studies have reported: 44 percent experienced a “meaningful reduction” in pain within six months of the meditation or CBT sessions, equal to results reported by people taking addictive opioid pharmaceuticals. More, the pain relief continued for up to two years, even if the subjects stopped doing actual sitting meditation. “Meditation changes the way people think about pain and how they develop skills to keep it from becoming a major focus in their lives,” observes Cherkin. Regardless of the mechanism, experts in a holistic approach to chronic pain relief agree that encouraging selfcontrol, self-determination and self-empowerment makes a huge difference in patients’ abilities to control pain more naturally and effectively.

A New Way To Help Heal MyoFascial Release

“For most chronic issues, I have found adhered fascia is involved,” says Zachary M. Saber, MyoFascial Release Expert at Transformational Medicine PLLC (TransformationalMedicinePLLC.com). “Muscles are restricted, causing heavy, painful areas that seem to never heal.” While there are many remedies, there are actually some that assist in eliminating pains immediately, allowing one to actually get more help to remove Zachary Saber and repair the cause. According to Saber, liquid calcium magnesium is an immediate remedy for sore muscles and joints. Ice packs on an inflamed area will reduce pain immediately, then allow the patient to resolve the cause. Once fascia is released, muscles can then be stretched. “From there, you can strengthen, use PT functions to increase use and strength. Breaking up the scar tissue, the adhesions in the body, immediately resolves chronic pains,” enthuses Saber.

Integrative Low-Level Laser Therapy

A licensed acupuncturist and director of HanLing Acupuncture Healing Center, Inc. (hlahc.com), Steve Liu says that one of the most common chronic pain disorders is caused by soft tissue injuries such as tendonitis, muscle strain and ligament sprain. “Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS), icing and cortisone injections usually are Steve Liu prescribed to relieve pain. They do rid inflammation and ease the pain quickly the first time they are used, but when applied frequently, they lose their effectiveness and the acute disorder becomes a chronic pain condition,” explains Liu. At HanLing, his special technique integrates traditional Chinese acupuncture, cross-fiber massage and low-level laser therapy. Liu was an electrical and laser engineer in Silicon Valley, and has combined photobiomodulation therapy with acupuncture to treat acute and chronic pain conditions since 2000. Besides practicing acupuncture and laser acupuncture, photobiomodulation therapy, Functional Medicine and Chinese herbal medicine, Liu also coaches patients on a whole-food, plant-based lifestyle.

fter 25 years experience in medical practice and research, Dr. Hannah Hershoff decided to leave her lucrative medical doctor career to create healing jewelry. A phone chat with a cousin who took a trip from China totally changed Dr. Hannah Hershoff’s life. She learned that mystical stones from a remote area of Southeast China near her hometown have incredible spiritual healing properties. After extensive research, Hannah discovered that the key element of the stones is a mineral, JDZ Kaolin, formed millions of years ago. During a long process using local water and fire in a special kiln, the stones not only permanently formed their gorgeous colors and shine, but also gained their five natural elements. This information excited Hannah enormously leading to her decision to test the spiritual healing effects of the stones. She created her bracelets with these stones and gifted or sold to people with various levels of spirituality. A few weeks after wearing these eye-catching bracelets, three out of four individuals reported they gained confidence, improved their self-image, sensed more connections to loved ones and experienced a noticeable reduction in anxiety. A year later, Hannah and her husband started a company and named their JDZ kaolin comprised pieces, Sara Yo Stones. Dr. Hannah Hershoff says, “I am so glad I have made this career change decision, as each day I learn more about how Sara Yo helps people feel better. I Sara Yo am so fortunate to do something I am extremely passionate about!” Currently, the Sara Yo team provides complimentary email healing services based on Chinese Tao philosophy.

Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) is an effective therapy patients could add as a way to cope with physical pain and improve the outcomes of medical interventions. NMT is a soft tissue therapy that focuses on tender areas in muscles, referral pain and nerve entrapment/ compression. Stephanie Dixon, a licensed masStephanie Dixon sage therapist and certified neuromuscular therapist at Adaptive Massage Therapy (AdaptiveMassageTucson.com), has almost 10 years of experience working with chronic pain and injury rehab. “Tender spots in muscles are usually ischemic, meaning there is less blood flow to the area. NMT restores circulation to the sensitive tissue so the muscle can get oxygen again,” explains Dixon. “Referral pain is often associated with ischemia, especially if the pain has been present for a long time. NMT helps slow down and reset the nerves that are firing pain signals.” That is valuable for chronic pain patients whose nervous systems may be sensitive from injuries or illnesses. Muscles that are always contracted can put pressure on nerves, causing pain, numbness or tingling. By directly treating the muscle, NMT relieves the compression. While NMT can treat specific muscle concerns and relieve pain, it doesn’t strengthen muscles or cure chronic illness, but effectively manages painful symptoms. It can help patients stick with physical therapy and it’s safe and gentle, so it can be received on most medications.

Hypnotherapy

Patti Thompson, an Adult Nurse Practitioner and Certified Medical Support Clinical Hypnotherapist at Sage Path Therapy (SagePathTherapy.com), suggests hypnotherapy as a method for dealing with and getting to the causes of pain. Hypnotherapy offers a variety of techniques to reduce, and in some cases, eliminate chronic pain. It uses natural brain wave patterns, also found during sleep and meditation, to change Patti Thompson the perception of pain and alter the body’s response to it. “A recent National Institutes of Health study suggests that ‘self-management’ programs are more effective than traditional drug-based treatments in improving the perception of pain and improving quality of life for those who suffer,” says Thompson, who has 40 years of conventional and alternative healthcare experience. “There are many aspects to self-management, including the ability to control pain levels and participate in daily life. Hypnotherapy is proven to be an effective tool in this effort.” Thompson offers group workshops and individual sessions to teach self-hypnosis for pain management, anxiety, insomnia and other problems associated with chronic pain. 26

Back Pains

“The back is the strongest part of our bodies, and yet, it is one of the most common ailments. Between 70 and 80 percent of most industrialised people will have some sort Othon Molina of back or neck problem in their lives,” says Othon Molina, Ph.D., licensed massage therapist (MolinaMassage.com). According to Molina, health is an ongoing process and constant exercise is essential to maintain it. With loss of flexibility and ongoing stress, we can throw our back out. When disks buldge from too much pressure or tear from a severe strain, they protrude and press on the nerves. This major problem can be corrected, but it takes time. The longer the problem, the more need for manual therapy (medical massage and corrective exercises) to correct the structure. Strength is the final element necessary for a healthy back. “If you lack exercise and your muscles have no

tone, or if you only do certain exercises, you’re probably out of muscular balance. The most common problem is weak abdominal muscles and tight back muscles, which put more stress on the lower back,” explains Molina. “During an acute condition, see a doctor. Often some wobenzyme (natural) or even muscle relaxers, ice and bed rest can correct most episodes.”

Overcoming Opioid Addiction

Those who want to replace their current pain management plans with any of these therapies may find themselves stuck in an endless loop of prescription drugs. Dr. Lance J. Morris, with a private Lance Morris practice at Wholistic Family Medicine (ResonantSoundTherapy.com), says it is important to remember that most drugs are not designed to fix or cure medical conditions. Usually, they are used to treat and reduce symptoms, often with

no regard to the underlying cause of the problem, which can lead to temporary suppression of the symptom, and potentially opioid addiction. One of the most important nutrients in dealing with addiction is niacin or B3. Taken orally, it induces a vasodilating effect called a “niacin flush”. According to Morris, “This flush feels like heat from deep in the body with skin flushing and blanching, followed by itching, and usually lasts about 15 minutes. With pain, particularly pain caused by narcotic withdrawal, this ‘counter irritant’ effect can be very soothing.” Niacin is a precursor of the coenzyme nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD), a substance given intravenously that can stop withdrawal reactions, including pain and cure addiction. Alternating intravenous, high dose vitamin C with minerals like magnesium and potassium plus B vitamins, the results are even more dramatic.

A

t Spiritual Energy Transformation, owner Johanna Alley offers clients various modalities in one session to begin the body, mind and spiritual healing journey that the Higher Vibrational Energies know are needed. “Reiki, quantum, crystal, pendulum, Guides, angels, past life? Which one will give the answers to life’s purpose?” Alley questions. “There is no need to waste time and money trying all of these individually when the insights may be awakened in an all-inclusive session.” “Our people and planet are suffering on many different levels and many have been born into this life now to bring healing and raise the vibration to take us into the fifth dimension of Love,” explains Alley. “But too many find themselves stuck, directionless, angry and depressed because they do not realize their purpose in this much larger picture. From the quantum matrix comes insights from Guides, Angels, past lives, family and friends from the Johanna Alley other side, other dimensions and even other star systems.” Spiritual Energy Transformation taps into this matrix of quantum entanglement to open the door to this reality and show the way to a more fulfilling self-actualized life within the loving energy signature each of us came here to hold, project and teach.

Molly Hagan on Eco-Living:

START SMALL AND STAY COMMITTED by April Thompson

B

orn and raised in the Midwest, actress Molly Hagan moved west in the 1980s to pursue her dream of an acting career. Her childhood home was located alongside farmland that ended up being sold and quarried for limestone. “They kept buying more acreage and infringing on our life and landscape. It was hideous, and led me to want to conserve and protect the land and its beauty,” says Hagan. Committed to realizing her professional goals, she’s also dedicated to living eco-consciously and furthering conservation causes. Hagan lives with her partner, archaeologist Richard Guttenberg, in an energy-efficient home below the San Gabriel mountains in

Altadena, California. During her 30-plus-year acting career, Hagan has appeared in more than 30 films, including the classics Code of Silence, Some Kind of Wonderful, Sully and Election. Her many TV episode credits include Star Trek Deep Space Nine, Columbo, Friends, Seinfeld, The Golden Girls, Grey’s Anatomy and Bones; she was a regular on the popular Herman’s Head and beloved Unfabulous.

With so many dimensions to sustainability, what issue most moves you to make green lifestyle choices?

My chief concern is overpopulation. The most conscious environmental decision I ever made was not to have children; my decision is in no way a judgment on those that do. But I believe the warming world is grossly overpopulated, causing resources to become precious, and we must make ever wiser choices.

What are some of the conservation steps you have taken in your home and garden? When I had the means, I bought bigticket items to conserve electricity, like a Sun Frost refrigerator. When money was tight, I focused more on little things, like energy-efficient light bulbs, composting and recycling.     When we bought our small home in sunny Southern California three years ago, we tore out the lawn and irrigation system and planted mostly native plants that require little to no watering. We have an organic vegetable garden, which we hand water using rainwater captured in rain barrels. We also capture our shower water and use it to water plants in summer and flush toilets in winter. Our house had no heating or cooling system, so we invested in ductless split-system heat pumps that cool and heat very efficiently. We knew we needed to do more, so we met with a home energy consultant. We followed through with doable improvements like chimney balloons, painting our flat roof with a reflective coating and weatherproofing windows and doors, while we saved toward doing more big things. Last year, we were able to take the

plunge and installed recessed LED lighting, upgraded all our windows and doors and insulated our home’s ceilings and floors. We also repurposed material saved from my former yoga studio for the flooring. The insulation has reduced our air conditioning use by 70 percent; despite living in the scorching San Gabriel Valley with little shade cover, we rarely have to turn it on. Our winter electricity bill is down 40 percent, so we’re already seeing a return on our investments, in addition to reducing our carbon footprint. We know we can still do more. We dream of going solar and adding a water reuse system. Next, we want to get everyone involved in planting trees in our neighborhood.

If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, I’ll bet they’d live a lot differently. ~Bill Watterson

Because living in a sprawling city or suburb can raise our everyday transportation footprint, how do you minimize your driving? It’s tough to have a small transportation footprint in Los Angeles. I took the bus a couple of times when I moved here, but it was difficult to make timesensitive shoots and auditions. Luckily, nearly everything I need is near our home, and I try not to travel far unless I’m auditioning. I’ve always bought small cars to save gas. I bought the first electric hybrid made by Honda, their futuristiclooking Insight. My last three cars have been a hybrid Toyota Prius. 

Do you try to use your public profile to advocate for change? I’ve always focused on what I can do in my life to live simply and cleanly. The choices I’ve made come from my heart. I don’t carry statistics in my head, can’t quote experts and don’t consider myself an activist. I read up on eco-issues, get a visceral sense of what is right, and then try to lead by example. For example, after we tore out our water- and chemical-hungry lawn, our neighbors on both sides tore out theirs. It’s a simple, but powerful act.

hile some carmakers are filling showrooms with ever-larger gas-guzzling sport utility vehicles (SUV) thanks to lower gas prices, some car buyers want to do just the opposite and go greener with their wheels. Fortunately, more eco-friendly options exist than ever before—many of which come with surprising personal benefits in addition to a cleaner, greener planet. The green share of the U.S. auto market, combining battery electrics, hybrids and plug-in hybrids, peaked at 3.8 percent in 2013, according to the Automotive News Data Center. Despite a record 59 models available now, the share was just 2.87 percent in 2016. As Millennials—the generation that could be buying 40 percent of all new vehicles by 2020—fully emerge into the marketplace, eco-car numbers could zoom, although some think it’s possible they’ll by shunning car purchases for car-sharing services. “The market has continued to shift to crossovers and big SUVs, and there aren’t many hybrid models available in those categories,” says Sam Abuelsamid,

natural awakenings

senior research analyst at Navigant Research. “We expect that to change in the next couple of years, when vehicles like the hybrid Ford Explorer reach the public.” Navigant projects only 3.4 percent annual compounded growth in hybrid sales by 2025, but a much more robust 31 percent rise in battery-run electrics. “Conventional hybrids without a plug no longer have the halo they once had,” says Bradley Berman, founder of HybridCars.com. “The cutting edge has moved to electric cars with ever-bigger battery packs and longer electric range. With gas prices at relatively low levels, the green car market remains a small niche.”

Getting a Green Bargain

Many of the greener choices are now a tremendous bargain for consumers. The federal government currently offers a tax credit of up to $4,500 for electrified vehicles, and many states kick in with added subsidies. Highlights include maximums available for electric vehicles (EV) with big batteries: California, $1,500 in rebates, plus single-occupant use of the high-occupancy vehicle


lanes; Colorado, $5,000; Connecticut, $3,000; Delaware, $2,200; Maryland, $3,000; Massachusetts, $2,500; Michigan, $2,500; Pennsylvania, $2,000; Rhode Island, $2,500; Texas, $2,500; and Utah, $750. The Prius Prime is a prime example of the savings available. The acclaimed plug-in hybrid, with an electric range of 25 miles, starts at $27,100, before subsidies (starting prices are before destination costs). In California, it would be $21,100. This means this well-equipped plug-in hybrid is, for state purchasers, approximately $3,585 less than a base Prius liftback hybrid ($24,685). It’s a buyer’s market for green cars, as manufacturers incentivize them to meet federal and California fuel economy averages. Buyers are encouraged to act now before subsidies disappear. Hyundai is taking an interesting approach with its green Ioniq line, offering, beginning this year, affordable battery electric, hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions of the same midsized car platform. “This is about freedom for the customer—they can choose the level of electrification that fits them,” says Mike O’Brien, Hyundai vice president of corporate and product planning.

Audi A3 e-tron

Plug-in hybrid: Audi A3 e-tron

The power (204 horsepower) and zeroto-60 mph time capability is similar to the Bolt, but the A3 offers a more sumptuous cabin and Audi’s celebrated driving dynamics. The electric range is a mere 16 miles, but 380 miles total using the 1.4-liter, four-cylinder gas engine. Prices start at $38,900, but it qualifies for a $4,500 federal tax credit and some state subsidies, too.

Hybrid car: Toyota Highlander

Mildly updated for 2017, the Highlander is the only three-row hybrid SUV currently available, making it worth considering. Good news includes a power increase in the 3.5-liter V-6 (to 306 horsepower), although there’s a

small fuel-economy penalty. The hybrid is rated at 30 miles per gallon in the city, 28 highway and 29 combined. The bottom line cost starts at $36,270 without subsidies. Other worthy cars: The fuel cellpowered Honda Clarity, Toyota Mirai and Hyundai Tucson (for southern Californians); any of the Ioniqs; the versatile plug-in hybrid Chevrolet Volt; and the quick BMW i3 and i8 and Tesla Model S if the budget allows.

Prices start at $36,620, but subsidies can top $10,000. June 2017

Backyard Pizza Party Grill Scrumptious Pizzas and Flatbreads by Claire O’Neil

S

ummer is high season for grilling when just about anything sizzled over high heat tastes great. Grill masters Karen Adler and Judith Fertig recently put this theory to the test when they fired up their grills—gas and charcoal—to cook bruschetta, panini, flatbreads and pizzas. The results tasted so good that they created a cookbook: Patio Pizzeria: Artisan Pizza and Flatbreads on the Grill. Here are a few pointers using a backyard charcoal-style approach, with toxin-free hardwood lump charcoal, or

a barbecue gas grill. Grill grates can be plain or fancy, from a pizza stone to a high-heat pizza oven—all can bring out that charcoal earthiness.

Great Grilled Breads

“No patio pizzeria repertoire is complete without a signature grilled bread. It’s one of the easiest and most flavorful appetizers ever,” says Adler. This dish starts with good whole grain bread, liberally brushed with extra-virgin olive oil on both sides, and then grilled and topped with any number of vegetable

mixtures, from fresh sliced tomatoes to sautéed bell peppers or broccoli rabe and garlic. “The bread slices should be big enough to manage on the grill grates with long-handled grill tongs,” she says. “Simply cook on each side until the bread has good grill marks, then add toppings.” For flatbread, Fertig suggests starting with a pound of fresh pizza dough—healthy grain, if preferred—cut into four pieces. Pat each piece into an oval on a floured surface. “The good thing about flatbread is that it can be just about any shape, so the pressure is off to make it perfectly round.” Brush each oval with olive oil before transferring it directly onto the hot grill grate. When the dough bubbles up like a pancake, turn it with grill tongs and cook the other side. Then top the grilled flatbread with mixtures like honey, pistachios and chive blossoms or freshly chopped herbs and grated pecorino cheese. “Grilled flatbread can go vegan, vegetarian or ‘omnivoreean’,” she says.  

Tiny Pizzas with Big Flavor

Another variation is to step up from flatbread to small, individual pizzas, or pizzettes. For this, use the same fresh pizza dough, but roll it into four perfect rounds. One by one, the rounds go on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and brushed with olive oil. “Placing the dough on the oiled parchment paper first and then flipping it upside-down on the grill grates helps keep the dough’s shape better than placing it directly on the grates by hand. This quick flip-and-peel motion is easy once you do it a time or two. Keeping the pizzas small also makes them easier to maneuver on the grill,” advises Adler. After each pizzette bubbles up like a pancake, it needs to be turned and moved to the indirect, or no-heat, side of the grill. There, it gets pizza toppings and can sit for a while with the grill lid closed, so the toppings melt. Served with a fresh salad or summer fruit, a flatbread or pizzette makes for a perfect summer meal on the grill. Claire O’Neil is a freelance writer in Kansas City, MO.


Pizzeria Recipes

Baby Arugula, Ricotta, Sea Salt and Olive Oil Pizzas Yields: 4 (6-to-8-inch) pizza servings Fresh baby arugula on top gives this pizza a fresh first bite, with creamy, tangy, salty and grill-icious to follow.   1 cup ricotta cheese

¼ tsp dried red pepper flakes 2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil ¼ tsp coarse sea salt Freshly ground black pepper 1 lb prepared pizza dough, garlic and herb-flavored, if possible; whole wheat, natural grain or gluten-free if preferred Unbleached all-purpose or gluten-free flour for rolling out and dusting Extra-virgin olive oil for brushing ¼ cup grated Pecorino Romano cheese 4 cups baby arugula (about 6 oz) Stir together the ricotta, red pepper flakes and olive oil in a small bowl and adjust the seasonings to taste. Set aside.   Prepare an indirect medium-hot fire in the grill, with heat on one side and no heat on the other.   Divide the dough into four portions. On a floured surface, pat or roll each portion into a 6-to-8-inch-

diameter circle. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Brush olive oil into a circle that’s a little larger than a pizza, and then place a pizza on the oiled circle. Brush the top of the pizza with olive oil. Lift the pizza by holding the ends of the parchment paper. At a height of about 6 inches above the grill, flip the circle of dough onto the hot side of the grill grates. Quickly peel off the parchment and close the lid. Grill the pizza for 2 to 3 minutes, or until it has good grill marks.   Turn the pizza with tongs and move it to the indirect side. Spread the pizza with one-quarter of the ricotta and sprinkle with one-quarter of the Pecorino Romano. Cover and grill for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the cheese has melted. Repeat the process with the other pizzas. To serve, top each pizza with 1 cup of arugula.

Broccoli Rabe and Garlic Bruschetta Yields: 8 servings Hearty greens such as broccoli rabe, kale, Swiss chard and spinach are interchangeable here. A quick sauté until greens are wilted keeps dark colors brilliant. Pile the greens, still dripping with olive oil, atop the toasted bread for an appetizer or delicious side with pasta or pizza.   For the sautéed broccoli rabe: 8 oz broccoli rabe, chopped 1 large garlic clove, thinly sliced 2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil 1 /8 tsp kosher or sea salt Pinch of red pepper flakes (less than 1/8 tsp)   For the bruschetta: 8 slices (½-inch-thick) of Italian country (or gluten-free) bread 2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil   For the sautéed broccoli rabe, in a large skillet on the stovetop, heat 2 tablespoons of water and add the broccoli rabe and garlic. Cook until soft, 6 to 8 minutes. Drizzle with the olive oil and season with the red pepper flakes and salt. Adjust the seasonings to taste.   For the bruschetta, prepare a medium-hot fire in the grill. Brush each slice with the olive oil and grill 1 to 2 minutes per side, or until it has good grill marks.   Spoon a heaping tablespoon of the wilted broccoli rabe on each bruschetta and serve warm.


Thai Shrimp Pizzettes with Coconut and Chiles

Yields: 4 (6-to-8-inch) pizza servings   Green curry paste, available in the Asian section of the grocery, contains green chiles, lemongrass and other tasty seasonings. Ingredients include enough shrimp for nibbling before scattering the bulk of them on the pizzettes.   For the green curry coconut sauce: 1 cup fresh or canned coconut milk, well shaken 2 tsp green curry paste Juice of 1 lime (about 1 Tbsp)   For the shrimp pizzettes: 1 lb large shrimp (31 to 35), peeled and deveined Extra-virgin olive oil for brushing 1 lb prepared pizza dough, whole wheat, natural grain or gluten-free if preferred Unbleached all-purpose flour or gluten- free flour for rolling out and dusting ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro   For the green curry coconut sauce, stir to-

gether the coconut milk, green curry paste and lime juice in small bowl. Set aside. For the shrimp pizzettes, soak 8 (12inch) bamboo skewers in water for at least 30 minutes.   Prepare an indirect medium-hot fire in the grill, with heat on one side and no heat on the other.   Thread the shrimp onto the prepared skewers and brush with olive oil.   Grill shrimp over direct heat for 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until firm, opaque and pink.   Divide the dough into four portions. On a floured surface, pat or roll each por-

tion into a 6-to-8-inch-diameter circle. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Brush olive oil into a circle that’s a little larger than a pizza, and then place a pizza on the oiled circle. Brush the top of the pizza with olive oil. Lift the pizza by holding the ends of the parchment paper. At a height of about 6 inches above the grill, flip the circle of dough onto the hot side of the grill grates. Quickly peel off the parchment and close the lid. Grill the pizza base for 2 to 3 minutes, or until it has good grill marks. Turn the pizza with tongs and move it to the indirect heat side.   Spread the pizza with one-quarter of the green curry coconut sauce. Cover and grill for an additional 2 to 3 minutes, or until the topping has melted.   Repeat the process with the other pizzas. To serve, top each pizza with grilled shrimp and cilantro.   Source: Patio Pizzeria, by Karen Adler and Judith Fertig; adapted, with the permission of Running Press.

corresponding drop in concentration, memory and energy. Marrocco maintains firm boundaries with her daughter, 13, and son, 18, prohibiting the use of electronics at the kitchen table and in their rooms at night, in line with AAP recommendations. “They can only have devices in their room at night if they are in offline ‘airplane mode’ so they won’t be tempted to check or respond to incoming messages,” she says.   Kids don’t sleep well next to their phones, agrees Cross, a mother of three, ages 4, 6 and 8. “They have trouble falling and staying asleep.” She also doesn’t let her children use e-readers instead of books.  

Prevent Screen Addiction

Psychotherapist Nicholas Kardaras, Ph.D., an addiction expert and executive director of The Dunes, a rehab clinic in East Hampton, New York, is even firmer about screen time, having seen some kids go off the digital deep end. Delaying the onset of screen exposure is the most critical step a parent by April Thompson can take, suggests Kardaras. “There’s no evidence to suggest media exposure is beneficial to child development.

In her household, all electronic tablets and cell phones are kept in a drawer when not in use. “If I have work to do or have to take a phone call, I’ll go to another room, then come back and be present with the kids,” she says. “Quality, face-to-face time is important.”   Connect with freelance writer April Thompson, in Washington, D.C., at AprilWrites.com.

Four Ways to Set Digital Limits

K

eeping the family in sync about the amount of digital media use is challenging. Here are some expert tips on maintaining a healthy balance.

1

Decide the ground rules — “Determine rules that make sense for everyone, and it’ll be much easier to get your kids on board, as they won’t see it as arbitrary when you tell them to put their devices away,” advises Pediatrician Corinn Cross. HealthyChildren. org/MediaUsePlan offers a free interactive online tool to create a personalized family media use plan. If kids don’t comply with rules, Kathy Marrocco suggests turning the Wi-Fi off at night or taking away devices altogether. But don’t leave a void, cautions Cross. Substitute fun, fulfilling activities.

2

Be wary of even “good” screen time — Test educational apps before approving them for kids to ensure their quality and so parents can help reinforce the learning, says Cross. She likes CommonSenseMedia.org for parental reviews and information to filter media of all kinds, from apps and games to TV shows. Consider advocating for limiting screen time in local schools. “I asked my boys’ elementary school not to give them portable devices until they were 10,” says Nicholas Kardaras, the father of 9-year-old twins.

3

Watch out for rewards — Some screen time is more mesmerizing for kids than others, according to Kardaras, who treats such addictions. Most video games are designed on a variable reward schedule, similar to slot machines, which intentionally stimulates players to chase future rewards. Consider stricter limits on such media.

4

Play first in the real world — Because it reduces overall exercise, screen overuse can contribute to obesity. Cross recommends prioritizing exercising before daily allotted screen time; after being online, it’s more difficult to engage kids in physical activity.
