If it might seem silly to be thinking about next spring when we’re in the middle of summer, believe me, it’s not. I was so pumped last month when Mayor Rothschild gave us the green light to put on the Body & Sol Expo next March 8 and 9 at the Tucson Convention Center. Barbara Peters and I looked at each other and said, “It’s time to get to work!” The great news is that we already have a theme—Begin with Yes, and a keynote speaker, Paul Boynton, author of the book of the same name (see BeginWithYes.com). If you liked The Law of Attraction, which made a big splash a few years ago in The Secret, you have to experience the next step of the journey, The Law of Action. It was Nelson Mandela who said, “A vision without action is just a dream; a vision with an action changes the world.” Boynton has taken his own affirmative message, “The secret to a good life is not about having a positive attitude; it’s about taking positive actions,” to Good Morning America and beyond. With the commitment of a thought leader such as Boynton, I know that soon we’ll have a whole slate of great speakers to inspire attendees at Body & Sol. It’s also time for local practitioners and businesses to inquire about what role they can play as presenters, sponsors and vendors to a totally motivated bunch of people that will be looking to get their lives in gear. So pick up the phone now and let’s talk—operators are standing by. Well… just us so far, but it’s still only summer. That brings us back to the present, and enjoying all the outdoor activities we love, like—eating. In “Six Ways To Eat Safe,” by Melinda Hemmelgarn, we learn how to navigate the minefield of GMOS, pesticides and antibiotics that are tainting our food supply. In “Relishing Raw Food,” by Beth Bader, supermodel Carol Alt explains how eating raw keeps her vibrant. If she can do it, you can do it, right? Then there’s “Health Rules, Crazy, Sexy, Savvy, Yummy,” by Judith Fertig, with recipes for sensational successful summer meals. Also in this issue, we give credit where it’s due in “Food Conspiracy: Co-op still sets the Pace,” by staff write Sylvia Haskvitz. This community co-op has been a around since 1971 to bring us all the healthiest produce and products at the best prices with the most democratically organized organization possible. If you are not a member, I have to wonder—why not? In the spirit of summer,

newsbriefs Summertime Essentials For Bites and Stings

A

long with the summer heat, come all the critters that walk and fly. In their human encounters they often bite or sting, leaving one with a swollen, itching or painful area. These three homeopathic remedies may help keep yourself and your loved ones comfortable. Apis is the first choice for bee or wasp stings, especially with allergic reactions. It can prevent severe swelling, itching, burning and sharp pain from all insect bites and stings. Ledum helps reduce the swelling and bruising of puncture wounds and can aid in preventing an infection. Hypericum alleviates numbness, burning, tenderness, sensitive nerves, spasms and severe pain from puncture wounds. Remember to take a remedy as quickly as possible after the sting or bite, and keep in mind it is meant to complement any medical attention you need. Also, Rescue Remedy, a combination of five flower essences, may help you relax and stay calm whenever you are hurt. Desert Rose Homeopathics & Herbals is located at 3065 N. Campbell Ave., at Hedrick.

2014 Expo to Begin With Yes

P

aul Boynton, author of the book, Begin With Yes, will be a keynote speaker at The Body and Sol Expo, slated for March 8 and 9, 2014, at the Tucson convention center. Begin With Yes will also be the theme of the event. Begin with Yes is about making dreams come true, solving longstanding challenges and awakening a sense of enthusiasm and hope for what’s ahead. It’s about getting unstuck and finally owning your own life. It expands on the Law of Attraction and introduces the Law of Action, which puts you in charge of making big things happen, one small step at a time. Boynton believes that what our heart yearns for is not just a dream, it’s a calling, and if we’re ready to listen to our hearts desire, we’re ready to change our life in powerful, amazing ways. Good Morning America’s Joan Lunden says, “With warmth and encouragement, Paul Boynton places you and your goals front and center.

Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture System Available at Jade Star

J

ennifer Parks, MS-ASAOM, with Jade Star Acupuncture, can turn back the clock with a beauty secret used by Chinese nobility for thousands of years by harnessing this time-honored wisdom to reclaim a radiant and youthful appearance. The Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture System reverses the aging process naturally, with no cosmetic surgery facelifts, Botox or anti-aging skin creams needed to achieve beautiful skin. Instead, it utilizes an ancient needling technique that is very superficial, bringing increased qi and blood flow to the face, giving a more youthful look. Benefits include softer, firmer skin; reduction of deeper wrinkles; elimination of finer wrinkles; and improvement in jowl lines. Clients also report improved digestion, better quality sleep and a reduction of hot flashes, elimination of mild depression and anxiety, improved energy and an overall sense of well-being.

Full Moon Women’s Retreat Day

A

powerful day of healing will ensue from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., July 20, as participants gather on the full moon to talk about the loss of innocence experienced as young women. They will examine how this loss led to soul agitation and a disconnection from self. Women will discover together their wholeness and holiness as they take a look at what might have happened if they had elders to share wisdom with. Organizer Jane Innmon says, “We will use a talking stick to share and be heard as we look at how our lack of initiation as young women led us to this place, Jane Innmon then with instruction, we will do some shamanic journey work and journaling.” In the afternoon, a mudding ceremony and a brief sweat lodge will occur. The mudding ceremony is a lighthearted way to connect with the mother that sustains all of us; it is fun and all will have privacy while sharing in the sisterhood of the day. Healthy foods will be available throughout the day, with a feast at the end. For more information and registration, contact Jane Innmon at 520-395-0648 or visit SweetWaterHealingArts.com.

Healing with Oriental Food Therapy

J

ungin Yee, a graduate of the Arizona School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, has released her first book about the healing nature of common foods. Food Therapy is based on the nutrition principles of Oriental medicine and examines the character and therapeutic effects of many common foods. Yee grew up in Korea, where using food to support health and treat disease was an integral part of the culture. When she began her practice in acupuncture, she found her clients responsive to the concepts of food therapy, but in need of education and guidance. In Food Therapy, Yee introduces Oriental medicine concepts in a lay-friendly format, including personal stories, shopping tips and recipes to inspire the cook. Yee says, “Early humans foraged for food and through a process of trial and error, not only figured out what was edible, but determined what was medicinal. My book revives the ancient wisdom of food therapy, identifying the properties of foods according to Traditional Chinese Medicine principles.” Food Therapy is available in electronic format from Amazon.com and in print format from Jungin’s clinic in Tucson. For more information, contact Jungin at 520-205-0887 or visit JunginYee.com. See ads, page 7 and 17.

Home Composting Boosts Sustainability A 2012 report from the National Resources Defense Council notes that just 3 percent of uneaten food in the United States is composted, and landfill scraps account for 23 percent of all methane gas emissions. Composting, the process of decomposing organic matter into a nutrient-rich material, is an easy way to turn food scraps, lawn clippings, garden trimmings and other waste into natural garden fertilizer. Its relatively loose composition allows nutrients to pass into the soil quickly, and the practice reduces discards to landfills. Compost material is not limited to what’s left on a plate after dining. Expand contents to include peels, cores and husks from fruits and vegetables generated during meal preparation, egg and nut shells, tea leaves and coffee grounds, bread, crackers and pet food. Fruit and vegetable seeds won’t decompose in cold conditions, however. (Learn more about green gardening at GreenLiving.NationalGeographic.com.) Now, plates and cups made of sugarcane or corn, plus oil- and plant-based packaging, can also be added to the list. Pending legislation in California would allow products meeting certain criteria to bear “compostable” or “biodegradable” claims on packaging. Manufacturers of compost bins are responding to increased consumer interest with convenient options. In addition to traditional plastic or metal containers and wood-sided bins, new high-quality, enclosed, compost tumblers offer quicker processing time, protection from animals and less odor. Advanced models include automatic, electric, indoor composters. (See more at EarthEasy.com/grow_compost. html.) Live composting in the form of vermiculture, or worm composting, teaches care for creatures and ecosystem sustainability. Food scraps feed worms, which then produce nutrient-rich castings (excreta). (Learn more at GrowOrganic.com and RedWormComposting.com.)


healthbriefs Dealing with Autoimmune Issues

M

any chronic diseases like fibromylgia, chronic fatigue, rheumatoid arthritis, MS, allergies, myositis, IBS and others relate directly to our immune system. Even when adopting a healthy diet, fresh air, purified water and other healthy measures, people still contact these diseases. When our bodies eat or breath something, the good is used and the waste is expelled. But if something we take in is tagged by our immune Dr. Nathan S. Conlee system as bad, it is quickly eliminated. If we keep exposing our system to these irritants, the immune system is constantly summoned to respond, and this starts an inflammatory event that sets the autonomic nervous system into action. When the autonomic system is under constant alert, it learns to overreact and we develop autoimmune reactions. The body begins a chronic fight of chronic inflammation and chronic autoimmune response. If the autoimmune response attacks the myelin sheaths of our nerves, we get MS. If it attacks the muscles we get myositis, and so on. Treatment for autoimmune diseases starts with a functional neurologic and metabolic workup with food sensitivity lab tests. Then the patient must eliminate offending foods and airborne irritants and seek adjunctive therapies that balance these neurologic pathways, such as functional neurology, acupuncture, nutritional and physical therapy, exercise, massage and more, all tailored to each patient’s specific needs. Next, any damaged tissues must be healed using nutrition and appropriate therapy. These conditions are manageable and even preventable by keeping the nervous system balanced and knowing what foods and environmental irritants may trigger an autoimmune issue. Dr. Nathan S. Conlee, DC, CCSP, FIACA, DACNB, FACFN, LAc, CKTP, practices at Winter Haven Health Center, 3020 N. Country Club Rd. and can be reached at 520-322-6161 or PerformanceNeurology.com. See ad, page 19.

Plasticizer Undermines Heart Cell Functioning

T

he chemical DEHP, a phthalate used widely in household plastics, may change how rat heart cells use energy, according to a new study by George Washington University, in the District of Columbia. By shifting heart cells to depend on fatty acids as an energy source more than usual, DEHP may ultimately increase the long-term risk of heart attack and heart failure. The findings raise concerns about similar effects of plasticizers in humans. Earlier work from the same research team reported that DEHP causes irregular rhythms in cultured heart cells. DEHP is frequently used for medical blood bags and tubing and is found in foods packaged in plastics, especially fatty foods like milk products, oils and fish or seafood.

Nature’s Own Sports Drink

I

f Mother Nature chose an ideal sports drink for light-to-medium exercise, it might be coconut water, the clear liquid found most abundantly inside young, green coconuts. That’s the conclusion reached by Indiana University Southeast lecturer Chhandashri Bhattacharya, Ph.D., in presenting his research to the American Chemical Society. “Coconut water is a natural drink that has everything your average sports drink has and more,” says Bhattacharya. “It has five times more potassium than Gatorade or Powerade. Whenever you get cramps in your muscles, potassium will help you get rid of them.” A 12-ounce serving of coconut water may also help balance the typical American diet, which is too low in potassium and too high in sodium derived from excess salt; individuals consuming such diets tend to have twice the risk of death from heart disease and a 50 percent higher risk of death from all diseaserelated causes. Coconut water is also high in healthful antioxidants.

Pre-Pregnancy Diet May Alter Genes

I

t’s common knowledge that a mother’s diet during pregnancy makes a measurable difference in the health of her child. Now, new research suggests that what a mom eats before becoming pregnant might be important, too. According to a study in the online edition of The FASEB Journal of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology, the foods eaten by a group of non-pregnant female mice chemically altered their DNA, and these changes were later passed on to their offspring. The DNA alterations, called “epigenetic” changes, due to an inadequate maternal diet dramatically reduced the animals’ ability to metabolize many essential fatty acids that are essential to health.

T

he U.S. Department of Agriculture’s new food pyramid, MyPlate (ChooseMyPlate.gov), is based on its 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, aimed at helping people make better food choices. Fruits and vegetables should comprise half our “plate”, and dark green veggies are the USDA’s top choice of nutrients. Kale leads the list of helpful leafy greens for many reasons. Like its cousins in the Brassica family—broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage and collards—kale is a lowcalorie, nutrient-dense powerhouse of antioxidants, including vitamins A and C. Per calorie, kale contains more iron than beef and more calcium than milk, and it is better absorbed by the body than most dairy products. A single serving (about one cup, chopped) provides 5 percent of the recommended daily intake of fiber, plus two grams of protein. The versatile veggie—it is tasty steamed, braised or baked—is also a rich source of both omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids. Best of all, kale is a “green” green, high on the sustainability scale. Growing one pound of kale uses about 23 gallons of water; raising a pound of beef necessitates more than 2,400.

A Bevy of Berry Benefits

D

electable strawberries serve up some sweet health benefits. Studying the effects of strawberries on cardiovascular health, heart disease and diabetes, scientists at the University of Warwick, UK, discovered that extracts from the fruit activate a protein called Nrf2, which increases antioxidant and other protective measures in the body and helps decrease blood lipids and cholesterol that can lead to cardiovascular problems. The scientists plan to continue their research in order to identify the most healthful varieties of strawberries, how they are best served or processed and the amount to eat for optimum benefits.

n the United States, healthcareacquired infections (HAI) result in 100,000 deaths annually and add an estimated $45 billion to healthcare costs. Common HAI microbes that often contaminate items within hospital rooms include methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and vancomycinresistant enterococcus (VRE). Few strategies have been clinically proven to reduce the spread of these infections, but copper’s antimicrobial properties are promising. According to a recent study published in the journal Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology, placement of bed rails, tables, IV poles and nurse’s call buttons in intensive care unit hospital rooms reduced the number of HAIs in patients by more than half.

Household Cleanse Five Toxins that Need to Go

TEACHING Repurposing GREEN Food Education for a Sustainable World

Transform Your Leftovers

NutraSweet, a formerly Monsantoowned company, has developed a new version of Aspartame, called Neotame. It’s 3,000 times sweeter than table sugar and about 30 times sweeter than Aspartame. Not yet available directly to the public, Neotame is used to sweeten commercially processed foods, but is not required to be listed on package labels of non-certified organic foods. Neotame is more stable at higher temperatures than Aspartame, so it’s approved for use in a wider array of food products, including baked goods. One of the byproducts created when our bodies break down these sweeteners is formaldehyde, which is extremely toxic even in tiny doses. In the U.S. National Library of Medicine, which contains more than 11 million medical citations, Neotame research fails to include any double-blind scientific studies on toxicity in humans or animals. Nutrition expert Dr. Joseph Mercola notes that individuals experiencing side effects from Aspartame or Neotame can file a report with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration at Tinyurl.com/FDASafetyReports.

The SPCA in Cattaraugus County, New York, sets up a highly successful location for adoptions and raising donations in the Olean Center Mall every holiday season. The Collier County Humane Society, in Naples, Florida, turned a defunct pet shop in the Coastland Center mall into a thriving adoption center staffed by volunteers. Some shelters motivate the public to embrace and encourage the technique of trap/neuter/release (TNR) as a way to control feral cat populations. Aimee Gilbreath, executive director of the Found Animals Foundation, states, “We launched the groundbreaking Michelson Prize and grant program aimed at developing a non-surgical, single-dose sterilizing agent for cats and dogs. This type of product will help shift pet population control from lethal to non-lethal methods by dramatically reducing the number of pets coming into shelters.” Learn more at FoundAnimals.org/pet-spay-neuter. 18

Bee Careful

Honeybee-Killing Pesticides Banned in Europe Colony collapse disorder, a mysterious ailment that has been killing large numbers of honeybees for several years, is expanding, wiping out 40 to 50 percent of the hives needed to pollinate many of America’s fruits and vegetables. Some beekeepers and researchers cite growing evidence that a powerful class of pesticides known as neonicotinoids, which hinder the bees’ brain learning function and leave them unable to make the connection between floral scents and nectar, could be a key factor. Although manufacturers claim the pesticides pose no threat to bees, a recent British honeybee field study found enough evidence to convince 15 of 27 EU member governments and the Executive European Commission to support a two-year ban on three of the world’s most widely used agricultural pesticides in this category, starting this December. The action followed a European Food Safety Authority report in April that indicated these toxins pose an acute risk to honeybees. Source: Voice of America

One Life Yields Two Forests Jadav “Molai” Payeng spent 30 years single-handedly planting a 1,360-acre forest in his native India. The extraordinary, yet humble, eco-conscious farmer stands as a shining example of what one person can accomplish to make the world a better place. Now he is planning on devoting his next 30 years to planting another forest. Payeng makes a living in the forest he planted, rearing cows and selling milk in the nearest town with his wife and three children. He says, “I feel sad when I see people felling trees. We have to save the nature, or else we all will perish.” In 1979, when Payeng was 16, he began planting vegetation to transform the landscape after seeing wildlife perish from exposure along a barren sandbar near his home in northern India’s Assam region. Decades later, the lush ecosystem he created is now a safe haven for a variety of large and small species that include birds, deer, rhinos, tigers and elephants impacted by extensive habitat loss.

Health Rules Crazy, Sexy, Savvy, Yummy by Judith Fertig

I

n summer, when many fruits, herbs and vegetables are at their peak, it makes sense to harness their power for the family’s benefit. “Some people flock to plant-empowered living for better health, others because of their spiritual beliefs, to support animal welfare, respect the environment or best of all, because it tastes great,” says wellness activist Kris Carr, a documentary filmmaker, New York Times bestselling author and the educational force behind KrisCarr.com. Carr joined the wellness revolution after being diagnosed with a rare disease. It proved to be the incentive she needed to change her eating habits and find renewed power and energy. Her new book, Crazy Sexy Kitchen, with recipes by Chef Chad Sarno, celebrates the colors, flavors and powers of plants that nourish us at the cellular level.   Her main tenets include a focus on:    Reducing inflammation. Inflammation is caused by what we eat, drink, smoke, think (stress), live in (environment), or don’t do well (lack of exercise). At the cellular level, it can lead to allergies, arthritis, asthma, heart disease, diabetes, digestive disorders and cancer, according to Victoria Drake, 20

Tucson

Ph.D., of the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University, who culled the latest research (LPI.OregonState.edu/ infocenter/inflammation.html). Creating an acid/alkaline balance. “Tilting the pH scale in the alkaline direction is easy with a diet filled with mineralrich plant foods,” says Carr. It also means minimizing meat, dairy, sugar, eggs, commercially processed foods, coffee and alcohol.    Drinking produce. Green juices and green smoothies are ideal. “They are the most important part of my personal daily practice, one that I will never abandon,” Carr notes. Carr and her husband, Brian Fassett, whom she met when he edited her documentary, Crazy Sexy Cancer, share the juice and smoothie making responsibilities. “We make enough to have two 12-ounce servings of green drinks a day. Our recipes are often guided by what’s available in the fridge,” she advises. The secret is a three-to-one ratio of three veggies for every piece of fruit. Kale reigns in their home. The dark leafy superfood is especially suited for smoothies, salads and sautés. They like kale’s generous helping of vitamin K for maintaining strong bones. Carr’s Crazy Sexy Kale Salad is dressed with vinaigrette that includes flax oil, which she notes is high in omega-3s to promote healthy brain function. It’s also a well-known anti-inflammatory food. “Make sure to buy cold-pressed, organic flax oil in a dark bottle and store it in the fridge,” she advises, “because light and heat may turn the oil rancid. I like Barlean’s brand, but there are many other quality flax oils available. Since it is sensitive to heat, I use it mostly in salad dressings and smoothies.” Carr maintains that, “By decreasing the amount of acidic inflammatory foods while increasing the amount of healthy and alkaline plant foods, you flood your body with vitamins, minerals, cancer-fighting phytochemicals, antioxidants and fiber.” This supports the body in maintaining and repairing itself. She further points out, “Once your body repairs, it can renew. That’s big-healer medicine. You might as well get a business card that reads: self-care shaman.” Award-winning cookbook author Judith Fertig blogs at AlfrescoFoodAndLifestyle.blogspot.com.


Easy Summer Recipes “Many of my recipes have been influenced by cultural experiences, twists on favorite childhood meals or newly discovered ingredients,” says Chef Chad Sarno. “The strawberry smoothie is among Kris Carr’s favorites. Few dishes have proved to be as timeless and widely beloved as the kale salad.”

Strawberry Fields Smoothie

Enjoy the nostalgic tastiness of strawberry milk sans moo juice or powdered junk. Strawberries are phytonutrient factories, supplying the body with a bounty of anti-inflammatory and antioxidant nutrients. Yields 2 servings 3 cups cashew or nondairy milk of choice 2 cups fresh strawberries 1 Tbsp lemon zest 1 small orange, peeled 1 banana 1½ cups loosely packed spinach

Crazy Sexy Fridge Foods Each week, Kris Carr stocks her fridge with what she considers “whole, plant-based deliciousness.” One of the biggest secrets of eating healthy, she says, is being prepared. “Always keep a well-stocked arsenal of healthy ingredients at your disposal,” she advises. “At the very least, you’ll always be ready to whip up a green juice or smoothie.” n Canning jars filled with

n Flax oil

n Flax bread

ready-to-drink homemade smoothies and green juices

n Kale, parsley, spinach,

cauliflower, cucumber, bell peppers and citrus fruits

n Vegan buttery spread n Vegan mayonnaise n Raw sauerkraut n Vegan sausages n Cacao powder

Blend all ingredients until smooth in a high-speed blender.

Crazy Sexy Kale Salad

Kale is the king of leafy veggies and rules this preventionrocks salad. Serve it solo with a favorite cooked grain, or wrapped in nori or a gluten-free tortilla. Crown this kale creation by adding chopped fresh herbs or favorite diced vegetables. To be fancy, serve the salad wrapped in a cucumber slice. Yields 2 to 3 servings 1 bunch kale, any variety, shredded by hand 1 cup diced bell peppers, red, yellow or orange ¼ cup chopped parsley 1½ avocados with pit removed, chopped 2 Tbsp flax oil 1½ tsp lemon juice Sea salt, to taste Pinch of cayenne, to taste 1 cucumber Combine all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. Massage and mix using both hands to “wilt” the kale and cream the avocado (takes just a minute or two). Then serve. For a fun touch, cut a thin lengthwise slice of cucumber and create a circle to outline each serving of salad, stitching the ends of the cucumber slice together with a toothpick. Place the salad in the cucumber ring and then serve.

Vibration at Heart of Sound Shifting by Dale Bruder Tryshe Dhevney

L

istening to a babbling brook or a favorite piece of music can change our moods, but the sound of our voice can provide an even more penetrating and prolonged shift in the internal vibrations of the body, mind and spirit. Tryshe Dhevney knows sound as a healing modality from personal experience. She cleansed her body of the hepatitis C virus through voicing the open tone “Ahhhh” and using crystal toning bowls. Months after stopping interferon injections and adding the practice of toning frequencies, her M.D. signed off on a complete bill of health, calling Dhevney his “miracle girl.”In more than two decades of working with crystal singing bowls and voicing open tones, Dhevney identified what she calls sound codes; frequencies that penetrate the body, affecting the mind and emotions in healthful ways. She explored the resonance qualities during years as an artistic director in institutions where she facilitated activities with teens in drug recovery programs. “The kids would transform by the end of their time with me. Not only were they continuing to be healthy, they were also emotionally adept and literate.” First an artist, Dhevney found her focus moving into science. She dove into the research that qualified sound as a healing modality. “The nucleus of the work came to me when I asked how sound reached beyond the actor’s tool—the voice,” Dhevney says as she reaches for a large smoky-cream-

22

Tucson

colored crystal bowl. “I uncovered the healing qualities of sound codes in the voice and the frequencies that resonate from the bowl. Unlike chanting, this vowel-based sound bypasses the discerning mind.” She pressed the rubber tip of a suede mallet around the outside of the bowl, bringing forth a wave of aural harmonics. Her voice rose up, finding a resonance with the sound of the vibrating bowl and creating a penetrating sound. Her studies took her deep into the literature of the new science psychoacoustics – the study of the effect of music and sound on the human nervous system. Dr. Hans Jenny, a Swiss scientist, proposed that sound creates form and changing frequencies affect matter at the cellular level. Dr. Herbert Benson, M.D., of the Mind/Body Medical Institute at Boston’s Deaconess Medical Center, who studied the effects of chanting mantras on human physiology, found that repeating a single syllable or word produced measurable changes in energy consumption, respiration rate, heartbeat, metabolic rate and pulse, as well as an increase in alpha brain waves. Dr. Deepak Chopra and Dr. Andrew Weil share Dhevney’s interest in sound science. Chopra teaches, “The body is held together by sound, and the presence of disease indicates that some sounds are out of tune…” Weil states,“… the effect of music and sound on the nervous system …shows that frequency can relieve pain, help stroke patients and benefit other conditions.” Research using laser technology with sound has produced perfect geometric shapes, reinforcing the idea that vibration underlies all form. Embracing this knowledge, Dhevney bridged the two disciplines of art and science, exploring her own discoveries of the effects of using open tone voicing vowels with combinations of crystal singing bowls. “I had no idea what I was witnessing or what was going on until I stopped questioning and just observed.” She says, “I came to recognize sound codes are like the subatomic particles, neutrinos. Both penetrate and pass through everything; rocks, people, entire


planets—both are everywhere all the time and have been since the beginning of the universe.” Following her full recovery, Dhevney began sharing her knowledge with others through experiential events. “I offered free community workshops, demonstrations and held toning circles by donation. The presentations gave me opportunities to understand the vibrations at the heart of sound healing.” She has since developed an innovative method of using the innate power of the human voice to create a conscious, expansive link to health and well-being. The premise of Dhevney’s SOUNDSHIFTING is that the resonant quality of voice, coupled with the clarity of intention, attunes and transforms consciousness and taps into a powerful healing space. A Certified Sound Healing Practitioner, Dhevney recognizes, “Sound is the most direct path to healing the body and its subconscious thoughts and emotions. It is a journey that begins with one’s attention to inner change. As we explore within ourselves, we can easily tap into our own wisdom, vocal power, unlimited creativity and unexpressed feelings.” “Focused use of sound, combined with deliberate intuitive movement, forms an energetic grid through which previously blocked energy can flow,” she emphasizes. “It is a profoundly direct, effective and efficient energy healing process that creates a healing mechanism of resonance and vibration. As sound moves to those parts that are ‘out of

tune,’ we return to a natural rhythm and frequency.” Ten years into the work, Dhevney formed a private practice and recently established the Crystal Tone Singing Bowl Temple and showroom. Her practice grew as she moved through her own 10,000 hours of becoming exceptional. Dhevney’s private practice emphasizes, “All thoughts, all beliefs are vibrations. They impact the entire physio/ psycho/spiritual system by setting in motion not only the direction of your life, but also the people and situations you attract.” She states, “As you confidently and joyfully align with your natural frequency and heart-centered essence, you expand your capacity to create the life you want.” An epiphany came during her private sessions. “I’m no longer focused

NaturalTucson.com

on being the healer specifically,” she sighs. “I learned the hard way that I need to get out of people’s way so they can do their own adjusting. My true role is as a facilitator, holding the space, the frequencies, and allowing the individual to do their own adjusting. I’ve learned to get out of the way so they are actively connected to what there is to do.” The bowls are opening up new collaborations of sound and voice for all to experience the full spectrum of harmonics. Dhevney concludes, “These transmissions carry advanced harmonic sound codes, tuning our personal vibration and activating a deep sense of unity with All That Is.” For more information, visit SoundShifting.com.

Relishing Raw Food Supermodel Carol Alt on How Eating Raw Keeps Her Vibrant by Beth Bader

C

the U.S. launch of her skin care line, Raw Essentials.

How has your relationship with food changed over the years, and what role has raw food played? I grew up like other kids on Long Island. Mom cooked spaghetti and macaroni and cheese. Dad would sometimes grill a piece of meat until it was dead a second time. On weekends, we ate pizza or Chinese takeout. I never realized broccoli was green, because overcooking turned it gray. One day, I got sent home from a job because they said I was not in “swimsuit condition.” A friend recommended a physician that specialized in raw food diets, which was the first I’d heard of it. So I tried a raw diet, cold turkey, and felt better immediately. Today I eat raw food as an anti-aging agent and natural medicine that makes me healthier; it’s also a filler that makes me less hungry. My holistic lifestyle no longer includes any over-the-counter drugs. These days, my system runs efficiently, like an electric golf cart. When I need to go, I go. When I need to stop and sleep, I sleep. The body can work phenomenally well if we just let it. photo by Jimmy Bruch

arol Alt characterizes the latest stage of her 30-plus-year career as a “perfect storm of busy,” including the launch of her latest book, Easy Sexy Raw, and her roles in Woody Allen’s film, To Rome with Love, and the HBO documentary, About Face, exploring the relationship between physical appearance and the business of beauty. For the past year, she’s been overseeing

“Raw” seems like an easy diet to prepare, but some of the methods can take time and special equipment. What’s a simple starting point? Using a blender, you can make everything from soup to dessert. Start with things like guacamole, salsa and soups. You can also use a pot and hot water (up to 115 degrees) to warm kelp noodles to add to a blended soup. You can make a mousse from raw chocolate and avocado. Also begin to think of a dehydrator as a crock-pot that works while you’re away. It’s a simple option once you are in the habit of using it. Of course, you’ll want to make all kinds of fresh salads.

How do you maintain your raw food plan when you are eating out or in social settings? I look for foods that I know will be raw. If I have any doubts, I ask the chef. If there’s any question, I just don’t eat it. There’s a bit of discipline in this. You have to eat on a schedule and make sure you are getting the food you need. I may lunch even if I am not hungry, especially when I know I’ll be dining out later. It’s important to make sure you are not feeling deprived and hungry; otherwise you may find yourself craving things like the bread on the table.

Do you ever miss cooked foods and sometimes indulge? My diet is 75 to 95 percent raw. When you eat raw foods, you feel so much better that you don’t want to eat anything else. My one indulgence is munching on popcorn when my favorite sports team plays.

Do you have any final advice on exploring a raw diet? Relax and have fun trying different things. If you cheat, it’s okay. If you feel deprived in any way, go eat. Above all, enjoy the adventure. Beth Bader is the co-author of The Cleaner Plate Club and blogs at CleanerPlateClub.com.

Stone Fruits Keep Waistlines Trim

S

ome favorite summer fruits, like peaches, plums and nectarines, may help ward off metabolic syndrome, a collection of conditions including high blood sugar levels and excess fat around the waist that can lead to serious health issues such as stroke, heart disease and diabetes. A study by Texas A&M AgriLife Research, presented at the American Chemical Society’s 2012 National Meeting & Exposition, reported that pitted fruits contain bioactive compounds that can potentially fight the syndrome. According to food scientist Luis CisnerosZevallos, Ph.D., “The phenolic compounds in the fruits have anti-obesity, anti-inflammatory and anti-diabetic properties… and may also reduce the oxidation of the bad cholesterol, or LDL, which is associated with cardiovascular disease.”

Benefits of a Purification and Weight-Loss Program by Dr. Tim Harrigan

H

ippocrates, the father of medicine, stated, “Disease is an expression of detoxification.” Living in a chemically oriented society has made toxicity a much greater concern for the 20th century. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency reports that the average American consumes four pounds of pesticides each year and has residues from more than 400 toxic substances in their body. More than 3,000 chemical additives are found in the foods we eat. The incidence of many toxic diseases has increased as well, with cancer and cardiovascular disease at the top of the list. Arthritis, allergies, obesity and many skin problems are other troubles that occur as a result of toxicity. In addition, a wide range of symptoms, such as headaches, fatigue, pains, coughs, gastrointestinal problems and problems from immune weakness can all be related to toxicity. Purification is merely the internal cleansing and detoxification of the body. Think of it as “spring cleaning” for our insides. What we eat is as important, if not more important, than merely eating less. There is a strong link between our nutrition and diseases that we acquire. Diets that are high in calories, particularly saturated fats and processed or refined foods, are linked to a higher risk for many chronic diseases. Evidence suggests that high intake of fruits and vegetables, along with limited intake of calories, saturated fats and cholesterol, reduces oxidative stress and may lower the risk of all-cause mortality, cancer and cardiovascular disease. Eating nutrient-rich foods is also important, because the chemical compounds in these foods play an important role in supporting the body’s detoxification processes. For example, certain chemicals from cruciferous vegetables like broccoli or Brussels sprouts affect the enzyme detoxification functions of the liver. So, detoxification diets that emphasize whole foods—natural, unrefined, unprocessed foods like fruits and vegetables— may help to support the body’s detoxification functions and decrease oxidative stress. Integrating more whole foods into our diet after cleansing also may help us sustain the health benefits of a cleanse. In order to remove natural toxins and help maintain a healthy weight, the purification (or detoxification) process is necessary to achieve optimum levels of health and wellness. It 26

Tucson

is designed to assist your body through this natural process. Our body endures external toxins on a daily basis, including pollutants, chemicals and pesticides. As a result of normal metabolic function, our body also produces waste products internally. A purification/weight loss program helps the body rid itself of these toxins when it is overburdened with them and minimizes weight to maintain health and vitality. Toxins contribute to a wide variety of conditions that include weight gain and intense food cravings, sleeping difficulty or fatigue, gastrointestinal problems and poor digestion, low or reduced libido, allergies and difficulty with concentration or mental fog. A purification/weight-loss program may produce increased mental clarity, more restful sleep, increased vitality and energy levels, increased weight loss results and management, significant reduction in bloating, improved digestion function, noticeably clearer skin with less blemishes, shinier and more healthy looking hair and lessening or disappearance of past health conditions. A purification/weight-loss program is not a diet. It should be a lifestyle change, because it includes only whole foods that are unprocessed and void of toxic chemicals. It helps to create better eating habits while it cleanses and detoxifies the body while maintaining a healthy weight and healthier lifestyle by nourishing and purifying the body. Fruits and vegetables are consumed on a daily basis and it limits saturated fats and high-calorie, refined foods. By nourishing the body with nutrient-rich foods, it provides a complex combination of minerals, vitamins and antioxidants that are necessary to promote optimal health and protect the body. Dr. Tim Harrigan, a chiropractic physician, offers a 21-day purification/weight-loss program at Synergy Wellness, 6031 E. Grant Rd., in Tucson. For more information or appointments, call 520-818-8857 or visit NaturalHealthTucson.com. This program is only available through certain healthcare providers.

Food Conspiracy Co-op Still Sets the Pace by Sylvia Haskvitz

T

his year, the Food Conspiracy Co-op was voted the Best Organic Food Store by Tucson Weekly readers and the San Francisco Chronicle wrote, “The Food Conspiracy makes Whole Foods look like 7-11.” The popular co-op has been around since February 1971, when a radical Tucson political group known as the John Brown Party came together to buy food collectively. Although they didn’t know much about buying clubs, that is exactly what they formed, because they wanted control of their own food supply. It was deemed a “conspiracy” to radically change the way people did business, and so their rallying cry became, “Food for people, not for profit.” Their purpose of this thriving, ethical, environmentally conscious and cooperatively owned business is to provide healthy, high-quality food and products as locally and sustainably produced as possible. They also provide education that encourages informed choices about health, food, the environment and cooperatives. Having recently remodeled the 42-year-old store and expanded the mostly organic kitchen, Food Conspiracy sells prepared foods to fill the community’s evergrowing demand. Most popular are raw kale salads. A savory kale chickpea salad is made with kale, chickpeas, bell pepper, plenty of garlic and Romano cheese. Another favorite combines kale with loads of seeds, coconut, ginger and lime juice. Like everything else they make, there is an emphasis on organic ingredients and

local if they can get it. In addition to a full salad bar, they make two soups daily; one is always vegetarian and/or vegan. The hot bar rotates daily with a vegetarian and vegan option, too. Favorites include red Chile enchiladas, red curry (chicken or tofu), cashew chicken with ginger rice, Bolivian quinoa stew and shepherd’s pie. They make breakfast burritos, muffins, yogurt parfaits with their own house-made granola and bagels. Sandwiches, including the awardwinning tempeh BLT, wraps and loads of ready-to-eat salads containing beets, pasta, tuna, egg, kamut and quinoa are all on the menu. For dessert, they have co-op cookies, brownies, chocolate tofu pudding and coconut quinoa pudding. They use primarily organic olive, canola and flax oils. Food Conspiracy Co-op is the only retail food co-op in the state of Arizona and one of 138 nationwide. It belongs to the Natural Cooperative Grocers Association (NCGA). Founded in 1999, NGCA is a business services cooperative for retail food co-ops located throughout the United States that helps optimize operational and marketing resources, and strengthen purchasing power. With 2,600 owners, 34 employees and throngs of volunteers, Food Conspiracy is a cooperative business model, because everyone benefits. Owners get to participate in special sales and receive a patronage rebate at the end of the year. Members that choose to resign their membership during the year are guaranteed to get their money back. The Food Conspiracy Co-op sells foods from local farmers that include Forever Yong, Avalon Gardens, Walking J and English Fruit Farm. The co-op gave Sleeping Frog Farms $25,000 to help them expand their resources, and the farm was able to pay the money back in produce over a two-year period, interest-free. Location: 412 N. 4th Ave., Tucson. For more information about Food Conspiracy Coop, call 520-624-4821 or visit FoodConspiracy.coop. Sylvia Haskvitz is a frequent contributor to Natural Awakenings.

Iced Tea has Issues

I

t is peak season for iced tea, but this warm-weather favorite may not be the ideal choice to counter dehydration. Iced tea made from black tea contains high concentrations of oxalate, one of the key chemicals that lead to the formation of kidney stones, a common disorder of the urinary tract that affects about 10 percent of the U.S. population. “For people that have a tendency to form the most common type of kidney stones, iced tea is one of the worst things to drink,” reports Dr. John Milner, an assistant professor with the Department of Urology at Loyola University Chicago’s Stritch School of Medicine. While all black tea contains oxalate, dietitians note that people tend to imbibe more of it when it’s on ice than when it’s hot.

Summer Play

Seven Ways to Let a Kid be a Kid by Madeline Levine Why not make summer fun again? Here’s how.

just hang out with family and friends.

4 Follow the principle that regular playtime is vital for everyone.

4 Encourage free-range (not pre-packaged), natural and spontaneous play—like a sandbox in the backyard, blocks and impromptu neighborhood soccer games, instead of an amusement park, elaborate toys and soccer camp.

4 Get in touch with our own playfulness. Kids really do model what they see. Present a picture of adulthood that children will want to grow up to emulate. 4 Tell the kids it’ll be a laid-back summer. Ask them to create a fun bucket list of which activities they want to keep... and which they want to toss. Parents may be shocked by what they say they want to quit doing. Sometimes kids do things because we want them to, and somehow we fail to notice their heart hasn’t been in it. 4 Arrange low-key times with friends and family. This may mean turning down some invitations and setting aside an evening as family night. Make sure kids have regular opportunities to

4 Make sure children also have total down time for lying in the grass looking at the sky, or sitting on the sidewalk sharing a stick of all-natural gum with a friend. 4 Show trust in giving youngsters some freedom. Choice is the hallmark of true play. Have confidence that when a child is off on his own and enjoying and directing himself in activities he chooses, that is his “job”. The chances are that whatever innocent activities he’s doing of his own free will are better than any “enriching” activity we might impose on him. NaturalTucson.com

Opening Doors La Frontera Arizona by Suzie Agrillo

L

a Frontera Arizona has been a local nonprofit for 40 years. Recently, it has expanded its mission from strictly providing behavioral health services into that of a “community problem solver.” Dan Ranieri, longtime CEO of La Frontera, is the veritable Steve Jobs of the nonprofit behavioral health sector. He attributes the resiliency of La Frontera in these turbulent economic times to its ability to be innovative, novel and creative. Much larger than typical nonprofits, Ranieri is in charge of 17 corporations and upwards of a $75 million annual budget. In order to remain competitive, Ranieri has become known as a problem solver. “I believe in making the impossible possible. If someone tells me, ‘I can’t do it,’ I tell them to find a way to overcome the problem.” Some of the diverse community problems Ranieri is tackling include public safety, violence reduction, suicide prevention, economic development, affordable housing and education. On the housing front, recently La Frontera showcased Sunnyside Pointe Villas, which will include 90 single-family rental units for low-income seniors. The construction was environmentally based to keep utility costs down and enable seniors on a budget to live there. Another relatively new division acquired by La Frontera is La Paloma, which provides foster care and group homes for youth. La Paloma offers a JUMP for College program, which provides services to local students to assist them in their academic performance. The goal is to enable them to stay in school and ultimately get a college education, breaking the cycle of poverty. Veterans coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as other duty, are eligible for services at the new La Frontera entity, Rally Point. Bill Magnotto, executive director for La Frontera Partners, explains, “When veterans get out of the service, most of them have been on multiple deployments. They have no training to go back into society. Because we have a volunteer army, a lot of veterans didn’t have jobs prior to entering the service. They were taught to kill and not to trust anyone. Most, if not all veterans have post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).” Rally Point is a place where any veteran that is having trouble getting Veteran’s Administration services can receive 32

The counselors will also help with problems veterans typically encounter, including homelessness and job training. Many veterans with PTSD do not want to be on medications due to side effects. La Frontera created a program utilizing the process of mindfulness based stress reduction for them. It is a nationally recognized therapy premised upon meditation and relaxation. Magnotto revealed the grim statistic that more veteras are dying from suicide than combat. In order to counteract the isolation and depression veterans face, La Frontera offers social groups that are peer-run by veterans for veterans. Family members are also invited to talk about what is going on in their lives and vent the frustrations they are feeling. “These services are free to all veterans. We make vets feel more comfortable in their own skin and their own community,” Magnotto comments. In addition to Rally Point, La Frontera is using cuttingedge technology to help veterans. David Bradley, chief development officer for La Frontera, explains that they are developing mobile applications for veterans that will allow them to have a virtual life coach 24 hours a day. “The app will provide counseling, suicide prevention and medication monitoring to enable veterans to stay focused on looking for work, shelter or whatever their needs are.” Kathy Wells, vice president and chief operating officer of La Frontera, enjoys being around hardworking, passionate people, and one of her favorite assignments is organizing the annual Tucson International Mariachi Conference (TIMC). The conference is a celebration of mariachi culture, music


and Folklorico dance, performed by famous professionals and aspiring student performers. These talented kids come together to share their love and passion for mariachi music and take lessons from the experienced performers. The TIMC has been going strong for 32 years. According to Wells, “It was established as a partnership with educators and economically disadvantaged Hispanic youth to increase their self-esteem and roots in the community, and to instill pride in the Hispanic culture.” All of the proceeds from the conference are dedicated to children’s services. La Frontera leadership believes that investing time and energy in young people and their futures is a responsibility that goes hand-in-hand with being a successful behavioral health agency. La Frontera has more than 850 experienced, caring professionals and myriad clinics, crisis lines, treatment centers and residential complexes, as well as inpatient and outpatient facilities. On the clinical side, it supports clients in their recovery with comprehensive counseling and behavioral

Six Ways to Eat Safe

The Latest Facts about Organics, Pesticides, Seeds and More by Melinda Hemmelgarn

H

ot fun in the summertime begins with fresh, sweet and savory seasonal flavors brought to life in al fresco gatherings with family and friends. As the popularity of farmers’ markets and home gardening surges onward, it’s time to feast on the tastiest produce, picked ripe from America’s farms and gardens for peak flavor and nutrition. Similar to raising a sun umbrella, learning where food comes from and how it’s produced provides the best protection against getting burned. Here’s the latest on some of the season’s hottest food issues to help families stay safe and well nourished.

Local Organic Reigns Supreme

Diana Dyer, a registered dietitian and garlic farmer near Ann Arbor, Michigan, observes, “You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy local, and that’s kind of the same thing.” Purchasing local foods whenever possible has many merits, including shaking the farmer’s hand, asking about farming methods and developing sincere relationships. Buying local also supports the local economy and contributes to food security. Yet “local” alone does not necessarily mean better. Even small farmers may use harmful pesticides or feed their livestock genetically modified or engineered (GM, GMO or GE) feed. That’s one reason why the smartest food choice is organic, with 34

Tucson

local organic being the gold standard. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) organic certification label ensures that strict national organic standards— prohibiting the use of antibiotics, hormones and GM feed and ingredients—have been met. Plus, organically raised livestock must have access to the outdoors and ample time on pastures, naturally resulting in milk and meat with higher levels of healthprotecting omega-3 fatty acids. Still, organic naysayers abound. For example, many negative headlines were generated by a recent Stanford University study that questioned whether or not organic foods are safer or more healthful than conventional. Few news outlets relayed the researchers’ actual conclusions—that organic foods may reduce exposure to pesticide residues and antibiotic-resistant bacteria; children on organic diets have significantly lower levels of pesticide metabolites, or breakdown products, in their urine; organic milk may contain significantly higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids; and organic produce contains higher levels of healthprotecting antioxidants. Jim Riddle, former organic outreach coordinator at the University of Minnesota, in Lamberton, explains that organic farming methods are based on building and improving the soil, promoting biodiversity and protecting natural resources, regardless of the size of the farm. Healthier ecosystems, higher quality soil and clean water will produce healthier plants, which in turn support healthier animals and humans on a healthier planet.

Pesticide Problems and Solutions

Children are most vulnerable to the effects of pesticides and other environmental toxins, due to their smaller size and rapid physical development. Last December, the American Academy of Pediatrics issued a policy statement that asserted, “Beyond acute poisoning, the influences of low-level pesticide exposures on child health are of increasing concern.” The organization links pesticide exposure to higher risk for brain tumors, leukemia, attention deficit disorders, autism and reductions in IQ. Because weeds naturally develop resistance to the herbicides designed to kill them, Dow AgroSciences has genetically engineered seeds to produce crops that can withstand spraying with both the systemic herbicide glyphosate (Roundup), and 2,4D, one of the active ingredients in Agent Orange, used as a defoliant in the Vietnam War. The latter is commonly applied to lawns and wheat-producing agricultural land, even though research reported in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives links exposure to 2,4-D to birth defects and increased cancer risk. Dow AgroSciences’ new GE seeds await regulatory approval. Eric Mader, program director at the Portland, Oregonbased Xerces Society for the conservation of invertebrates and pollinator protection, warns that broad-spectrum pesticides kill beneficial insects along with those considered pests. Mader recommends increasing the number of beneficial insects, which feed on pests, by planting a greater diversity of native plants on farms and in home gardens.

Demand for GMO Labeling

Despite California’s narrow defeat of Proposition 37, which would have required statewide labeling of products containing GMOs, advocates at the Environmental Working Group and


the Just Label It campaign are pushing the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for nationwide GMO labeling. Responding to consumer demand, Whole Foods Market recently announced that it will require GMO labeling in all of its U.S. and Canadian stores by 2018. Filmmaker Jeremy Seifert’s powerful new documentary, GMO OMG, should give the movement a major push, as well. The 2013 film explores the danger in corporate patenting of seeds and the unknown health and environmental risks of engineered food. Seifert says, “I have a responsibility to my children to hand on to them a world that is not poisoned irreparably.” As for the promise that GMOs are required to “feed the world,” he believes it’s a lie, noting that it’s better to “feed the world well.”

Seed Freedom and Food Choice

Roger Doiron, founder and director of Kitchen Gardeners International, headquartered in Scarborough, Maine, celebrates Food Independence Day each July Fourth. Doiron believes that growing, harvesting, cooking and preserving food is both liberating and rewarding, and patriotic. More than 25,000 individuals from 100 countries belong to his nonprofit network that focuses on re-localizing the world’s food supply. Food freedom starts with seeds. Saving and trading heirloom, nonhybrid, non-GMO seeds is becoming as easy as checking out a library book. Several libraries across the country are serving as seed banks, where patrons check out seeds, grow crops, save seeds and then donate some back to their local library. Liana Hoodes, director of the National Organic Coalition, in Pine Bush, New York, is a fan of her local Hudson Valley Seed Library. The library adheres to Indian Physicist Vandana Shiva’s Declaration of Seed Freedom and makes sure all seed sources are not related to, owned by or affiliated with biotech or pharmaceutical corporations. In addition to preserving heirloom and open-pollinated varieties, each seed packet is designed by a local artist.

Finicky about Fish

Grilled fish makes a lean, heart-healthy, low-calorie summer meal. Some fish, however, may contain chemicals that pose health risks, especially for pregnant or nursing women and children. For example, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), nearly all fish and shellfish contain traces of mercury, which is toxic to a baby’s developing nervous system. Both the EPA and local state health departments post consumption advisories that recommend limiting or avoiding certain species of fish caught in specific locations. For several decades, Captain Anne Mosness, a wild salmon fisherwoman, operated commercial fishing boats in Washington waters and from Copper River to Bristol Bay, Alaska. She worries about the threat of pollution from industrial aquaculture, plus the effects of genetically engineered salmon on wild fish populations, coastal economies and ecosystems. Mosness explains that AquAdvantage Salmon, a product of AquaBounty Technologies, was created “by inserting a

growth hormone gene from Pacific Chinook and a promoter gene from an eel-like fish called ocean pout into Atlantic salmon.” She questions the FDA approval process and failure to address unanswered questions about the risks of introducing “novel” animals into the food supply, as well as related food allergies and greater use of antibiotics in weaker fish populations. “The salmon farming industry already uses more antibiotics per weight than any other animal production,” comments Mosness. The FDA’s official public comment period on GMO salmon closed in April, but consumers can still voice concerns to their legislators while demanding and applauding national GMO labeling. GMO fish may be on our dinner plates by the end of the year, but with labels, consumers gain the freedom to make informed choices. Consumers can also ask retailers not to sell GMO fish. Trader Joe’s, Aldi and Whole Foods have all committed to not selling GMO seafood.

Antibiotic Resistance

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, antibiotics are one of the greatest public health achievements of the past 100 years. However, one of the most critical public health and economic issues we currently face is the loss of these drugs’ effectiveness, due in large part to their misuse and overuse in industrial agriculture. Dr. David Wallinga, senior advisor in science, food and health at the Institute of Agriculture and Trade Policy, says that about 80 percent of all antibiotics are given to farm animals for two reasons: to prevent illness associated with living in crowded, stressful and often unsanitary conditions; and to promote “feed efficiency”, or weight gain. However, bacteria naturally mutate to develop resistance to antibiotics when exposed to doses that are insufficient to kill them. Wallinga points out that antibiotic-resistant infections, such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), cost our nation at least $20 billion annually and steal tens of thousands of American lives each year. Most recently, hard-totreat urinary tract infections (UTI), were traced to antibioticresistant E. coli bacteria in chickens. Antibiotic-resistant bacteria exist in our environment, but are more likely to be found in conventionally, rather than organically raised meat and poultry, which by law must be raised without antibiotics. Consumers beware: the word “natural” on food labels does not provide the same protection. The good news is that according to Consumers Union research, raising meat and poultry without antibiotics can be accomplished at minimal cost to the consumer—about five cents extra per pound for pork and less than a penny per pound extra for chicken. Melinda Hemmelgarn, aka the “Food Sleuth”, is a registered dietitian and award-winning writer and radio host at KOPN.org, in Columbia, MO (FoodSleuth@gmail.com).

The School of Healing by Jon D’Auria

T

he Arizona School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ASAOM) offers unique opportunities to its students to learn ancient Eastern methods of restorative healing. In 1996, when ASAOM first opened its doors, it was the only school of its kind in Arizona and much of the Southwest. After 17 years and many graduated practitioners and healed patients, the trend of acupuncture and Oriental medicine has spread like wildfire all over the world. While the two methodologies have been practiced for centuries in the east, Dr. David Epley, the founder and president of ASAOM, believed in how powerful and restoring these methods are and knew that Tucson would be a perfect place to help spark the movement. “This medicine is the medicine of the future–one patient at a time,” says Epley. “We’re training and graduating students that are going on to carry out the next wave of this healing. We’ve turned out hundreds of practitioners who have gone on to do amazing things in their communities. We’re concerned with not only branches, but also the roots, in contrast to conventional medicine, which is usually concerned with just branches. We want to learn the deeper causes and not just supply a quick fix for the problem.” The school offers three fields of study, including the Master’s Degree in Acupuncture, Master’s Degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and the Certificate in Asian Bodywork Therapy and Tuina. While each field provides a comprehensive curriculum with hours of training on the specific subject, every student learns the entirety of every practice offered. This varies greatly from other schools of the same curriculum and helps ASAOM produce more diversified practitioners. “We want to make sure that our students understand what the process is to becoming a practitioner. It’s a very rigorous program, and I can tell because on top of my role here, I am also a student,” explains Admissions Director Bob Chasan. “We teach a full complement of medicine here, so not only are you going to learn

36

Tucson


the acupuncture, you’re going to learn about herbal medicine and the bodywork we teach here called tuina, which is an ancient Chinese medical massage. We also teach medicine, nutrition and philosophy. Anyone walking out of our school should be able to handle just about any case that crosses their threshold.” To help season the students for real-world experience in patient treatment and the practice of acupuncture, the school offers a clinic that is open to the public where anyone can receive top-notch healing and massage from students that are led by their teachers. If the popularity of the clinic is any indication, it appears that the community is overwhelmingly satisfied with the relief and vitality that they gain from the services. “We never have any shortage of patients in the clinic and our schedule is constantly booked up,” says Chasan. “People every day are discovering these medicines and methods. It used to be that Eastern medicine was a last resort to a problem, and that has brought so many people over to it once they see how effective it is. That’s a large part of how we get students, they have a breakthrough treatment and they want to dedicate themselves to the practice.” The number of Eastern medicine practitioners constantly expands with the new demands and popularity of the field, and as more and more success stories get widespread attention, the more people want to be able to heal others with the methods. However, the programs at ASAOM put their students through rigorous training that takes a truly determined scholar to complete. “It is not an easy thing to go through at all. If you’re interested in becoming a student of this school, we’ll first have you come in and visit with us and we’re going to describe the environment and we’ll have you sit in on a class or two,” says Chasan. “You’ll go to our clinic to get some treatments so you can see what it’s like. We require an essay describing why you are interested in this practice. We use these for when people may ask ‘Why am I here?’ when things are getting difficult with their studies or if they feel overwhelmed. We show them and say ‘This is why you’re here.’” With the recent addition of night classes, students can work toward their degree while continuing their busy lives without skipping a beat. Financial aid areis available to qualified individuals, and last year the school was rated in the top 15 percent of all military-friendly schools. With so much momentum fueling his passion of furthering the reach of natural healing, Epley and his staff keep their focus fixed on what matters most in medicine, and that is connecting with their patients and healing with energetic compassion. “This field is based on the understanding of vitalism, which explains that there

is a light force and a healing energy that we can access, and this medicine helps us do this,” says Epley. “Our practitioners heal our patients and teach them how to continue to heal themselves. Taoism plays a huge role in our system with its understanding that in essence, the results come from beyond ourselves.” Arizona School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine is located at 4646 E. Fort Lowell Rd. For more information, enrollment and clinic bookings, call 520-795-0787. asaom.edu. See ads, pages 7&17. Jon D’Auria is a frequent contributor to Natural Awakenings.

Savor Summer Revel in Blissful Indulgences by April Thompson

F

rom freshly picked cherries to moonlit hikes, summer offers endless free gifts. Its lingering daylight reminds us to step outside, take a deep breath and savor life’s simple joys. “Summer is a time to enjoy the small things in life, which are often the sweetest,” counsels Janet Luhrs, author of The Simple Living Guide and founder of the online Simplicity School (SimplicityJourney.com). “Kids do this instinctively, like seeing who can throw a rock furtherest into the water. I’m happy just having a simple backyard dinner with friends, reading a book in a city park or paddling a canoe.” Here are some summer classics to expand our own “to savor” list. Feast on Earth’s bounty. Make the

most of summer’s cornucopia of candy-sweet berries, rainbow-colored heirloom tomatoes and other natural treats abounding at local farmers’ markets. Get wet. Go skinny-dipping in a hidden creek, run through sprinklers in shorts or swimsuit or round up the neighborhood kids for a trip to a local water park, lake or public pool. Water games like Marco Polo and underwater tea parties never grow old, even for grown-ups. Commune with creatures. Who can resist the winking lightning bugs, flickering dragonflies and songs of an evening insect chorus? Summer immerses us in nature. See how many animals that eagle-eyed friends and

family members can spot during visits to area parks and preserves. Read by sunlight. The pleasure of reading heightens with natural light and fresh air. Pick an easy read to take to the beach or a hammock with sunglasses and a glass of herbal sun tea. Celebrate community. ‘Tis the season for free local festivals, picnic concerts, open-air movies and state fairs. Invite a friend or make a Dutch treat of it, even organize an informal potlatch block party. Take a day trip. Consider the healthy dose of activities that exist close to home. Delightful discoveries await the curious when traveling by local waterway, walking trail or bicycle path. Map a flexible route, allowing ample time for unexpected stops. Try something new. Summer is a chance to be adventurous. Step into a bright, pastel shirt or tropical sundress, and then revel in the compliments. Move from an indoor exercise routine to a free yoga class in a shady park and test ride a standup paddleboard. Look up. Summer skies offer more drama than daytime TV. Perch on the porch at sunrise, sunset or before a thunderstorm rolls in. On a clear calm night, lie back on a blanket and trace constellations while watching for shooting stars and meteor showers. Capture memories. Gather a pocketful of seashells, press wildflowers from special spots, make bread-and-butter pickles from the garden and print favorite snapshots to spark happy summer memories any time of the year. Do nothing. In the midst of so many marvelous options, we can also give ourselves permission to cancel our own plans on a whim and just do nothing. Simple daydreaming can lead to good ideas and inner rhapsodies. Summer is the best time to just be. “Try to not to plan more than one thing in a day this summer,” advises Luhrs. “Otherwise, you’ll end up cutting short activities to rush off to the next thing instead of enjoying what’s already in front of you.” Connect with freelance writer April Thompson at AprilWrites.com.

Secrets to a Bright Smile After 50 by Mickel Malek, DDS

H

aving a zest for life combines with a positive attitude to play a huge part in aging. Grumpy people seem old before their time, while exciting people with vitality age far more respectably. Smiles age just as the rest of one’s appearance does. The good news is that the many treatment options available to today’s dental patient will keep smiles youthful for a lifetime. This should be the time to become proactive, now that young families have been raised and some constraints have been removed. Health, wellness and a youthful appearance are priorities of many baby boomers. With just a few simple changes, a beautiful smile is available to anyone. Whitening teeth is a simple way to dramatically and quickly change one’s appearance. Whitening can be accomplished with treatments that whiten the teeth or with placement of porcelain veneers. Today’s whitening treatments provide better results and less post-operative sensitivity. An inoffice system usually takes about one hour. Results are instantaneous and long-lasting, depending on habits such as coffee, tea, red wine drinking. Whitening is recommended when teeth have yellowed through the years, but are uniformly the same color. Whitening is not recommended when teeth have been stained gray from medications such as tetracycline. In that case, porcelain veneers may be a better choice. Veneers cover the front of tooth similarly to the way an acrylic nail covers a fingernail. The teeth can be cosmetically altered so that they are a better shape and color and tooth size can also be changed so that unwanted spaces are filled in. Smoothing chipped teeth is a very benign way to improve an imperfect smile. Jagged edges garner negative attention, and simple smoothing and evening out can give the teeth more youthful curves. Teeth have gentle curves when they first erupt. With time, we grind them down, giving the edges aging, flat surfaces. A simple enameloplasty (tooth reshaping) can be accomplished with working just a few minutes per tooth. Polishing teeth after a dental prophylaxis is another way to brighten by eliminating surface stain. Coffee, tea and other tooth staining culprits can leave unsightly marks that are easily polished off during a regular tooth cleaning (prophylaxis) by a dental hygienist. Gummy smiles are easily corrected by simple gingival

contouring. This procedure uses a laser to trim the tissue, which gives the appearance of larger, more youthful teeth. Crooked teeth can be straightened in different ways. The traditional and conventional straight wire treatment would be familiar to most patients. Brackets are bonded to the teeth and the teeth are moved by use of a wire threaded through the brackets. New on the orthodontic scene is a series of aligners (think bleaching trays) that are changed out every two weeks. They create subtle movement that allows a patient to straighten teeth without using brackets and wires. Adults are great candidates for this new solution. Orthodontic treatment also cures problems associated with uneven midline, narrow arches and crowding, which can make a smile less than vibrant. Simple, painless treatments that can remake a smile in just a few short months are available at very reasonable cost. Treating gingivitis and periodontal problems will eliminate swelling, bleeding and the halitosis this situation creates. Non-surgical treatment modalities can prevent most of the sensitivity and recession that periodontal treatments have caused in the past. Newer, less invasive methods are keeping patients very comfortable while problem areas heal. Eliminating antiquated restorations such as amalgam or gold and replacing them with state-of-the-art, tooth-colored restorations is another way for patients to improve dental health. New bonded fillings preserve the tooth’s surface, as well as health and appearance. Today’s dental patient has a plethora of options available. A dental practitioner can help decide what is best for each particular situation. A new, beautiful smile is just a dental visit away.

SLEEP GREAT EVERY NIGHT “I’ve been using Sleep Apnea Relief for the past three months and now my pulminologist wants to pass it on to his patients who wear CPAP.” - Florence, NY, NY

50% OFF Leg Relaxer with coupon code LR50 30% OFF Sleep Apnea Relief with coupon code SAR30

“For 42 years we searched for something to take care of Restless Leg Syndrome. Not only does this product work but it works instantly! It’s Terrific. I recommend it to anyone who has this problem.” - Robert- Nebraska

Now you can end Sleep Apnea , Restless Legs and Leg Cramps and get a good Night’s sleep – night after night. Hi, I’m Steve Frank and I suffered from sleep apnea for years, so I know exactly what you’re going through. I even tried the CPAP machine but I could not sleep with anything strapped to my face. It was a serious problem and I was determined to find an answer. As an herbalist, I diligently pursued a group of herbs that would correct this problem and thank goodness, my persistence paid off! My patent-pending formulation has helped thousands and I use it every night. Now you can try it too! My Mom asked me what to do about persistent leg cramps. She had tried all the suggested supplements but still had problems. I put together a group of herbs to relax nerves, reduce tension and increase circulation. It worked great for her! Later, I found that it works for Restless Legs as well. Now you can use it too.

You owe it to yourself & your spouse to try these great products!
