Seeing What’s Good

T

hank you for being a reader. I hope you enjoy our March publication of Natural Awakenings. I find myself wanting to write about the injustice of things—the penal system, gun control, blame, closed-minded people, war, violence, inequality, inappropriate behavior, prejudices and our education system—and then there’s health care and veterans’ rights. Thankfully, our magazine is not part of “the world of what’s wrong.” Seeing the problem is so easy. Want proof? Turn on a TV, a talk radio station, a political cable broadcast, the news . . . Everyone, it seems, has an opinion on what is wrong. I’m proud that we are a solution magazine, a common-sense publication that chooses to see the good in everything. We strive to focus on what is right. Where change is needed, we look for new and positive ways to get there. In the coming year, I hope to bring so much more of that into our pages. Through awareness and educational articles, inspirational stories and new informative categories, we will bring you more of the good stuff. A new teen corner is in the works, along with a holistic mom column and a whole lot more of “good” to ponder. Our magazines are dedicated to our readers’ interests. Your thoughts, your stories and your interests inspire every change we make. Text us, email us or call and let us know what we are doing well, along with what you would like to see improved. Trust me, we pay attention. I am so lucky that, through our magazine, I have been granted a platform to encourage others—to talk of peace, love, kindness, personal growth, community, serving others, friendship, good health, nutrition, respect, becoming a steward for our planet, family, spirit and the dignity of life. I believe that when we see what is good, there is little time to see what is wrong. Let me close with a few of my daily reminders. Do something good. Inspire someone. Make a difference. Be a kid. Smile. In all ways, create with good intention.

The Visionary Art of Lazarus

A

little known fact about Shulamit Lazarus is her career of over a decade in the art field before her career as a personal transformation specialist and healer. Both her practice and her ar, however, are intimately related. To Lazarus, personal transformation is all about “waking up.” Lazarus uses imagery through the vehicle of collage in a unique manner that evokes and elicits emotional responses. She states candidly “My pieces are not aimed at being pretty.” However, those who have seen her work call her pieces elegant and deeply powerful. And just when you think you know the piece you realize as you look at it again, that there is something hidden in it that you didn’t see the time before. Lazarus’s art is at once surrealistic as well as visionary. It transcends conventional reality while at the same time speaks of a questionable collective reality that our assumptions and beliefs continue to foster and hasten. “The mission of my art is to wake people up to the beliefs and assumptions that unconsciously govern them and keep them in their comfort zone,” says Lazarus. “My pieces are meant to make people feel and question.” Lazarus’s pieces will be on view at the Montclair Art Museum Yard School Gallery from March 29 and running through May 4.

his spring’s Empowered Light Holistic Expo is just around the corner, running from 5 to 9 p.m., April 27, and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., April 28 and 29, at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center, 100 Station Avenue, in Oaks, Pennsylvania. Plenty of free parking is available. The expo’s focus is on holistic lifestyles, spiritual classes and personal development. “People feel stressed and distracted, and they are looking for more connection and answers,” says the expo’s founder, Sue Greenwald. “The expo offers connection with new friends, new ideas and, most of all, a community where people feel supported in a fun way.” The April Expo will feature a Shamanic Sound Meditation and Healing Concert with Grammy nominee Dalien, aka 13 Hands, and The True Story of Jesus and Mary Magdalena with Grammy nominee David Young. Jessica DeLuise, founder of Eat Your Way to Wellness, will be a featured speaker, as will Ataana, author, intuitive and energy healer from Nashville. Empowered Light engages attendees with experiential types of classes, like yoga, dance, meditation and sound healing, or mini-treatments, such as reiki and massage. Attendees can choose from over 50 workshops and lectures over the course of the weekend. Guests can linger and shop in between presentations with more than 150 holistic vendors. Interested vendors are encouraged to apply now for a space. Cost: General admission, $5-$20. Some presentations additional. Advance ticket purchases encouraged.

Experience Whole-Body Regulation Therapy

N

ext Generation Medical and Wellness now offers whole-body Regulation Therapy, an advanced noninvasive technology, which yields greater depth of information than conventional thermography. In conventional thermography, infrared measurements are taken at the skin surface. These heat images give a window into local cellular metabolism and the presence of inflammation. In Regulation Thermography, however, measurements are taken at the specific skin surface locations which correlate to specific underlying organs and tissues. The body is then challenged with a brief period of cooling, and the same points are re-measured, yielding information on thermoregulation. The test data is then computer-analyzed using a data base of more than 40,000 patients and more than 30 years of research. Since regulation of surface body temperature, or thermoregulation, is controlled by autonomic nerves, and the autonomic nerves reflect the health or dysfunction of underlying organs and tissues, abnormalities of thermoregulation are one of the very earliest indications of disease trends or illness. Regulation Thermography is one of the most sensitive indicators of health status known. This 45-minute, noninvasive test provides a comprehensive assessment and helps identify patterns of dysfunction long before they would otherwise be known. Location: 75 Bloomfield Ave., Ste. 106, Denville. For more information, contact Philip J. Cohen, MD, ND, at 908-455-2639 or email PCohen@CohenWellness.com. CohenWellness.com. See ad on page 45.

Blossoming into Light Welcomes Celia Tiberio

New Life Expo Continues Its Trail of Success

elia Tiberio has offered sound healing meditations at The Art of the Heart for the past eight years. After a brief hiatus, she excitedly returns to Blossoming Into Light, a new business located at the Integrative Wellness Center in Chester. Celia’s meditations and classes offer the wealth of her wisdom with an opportunity to look inwardly to find the pearl within us. In March, Celia will be offering two Friday evenings that combine her wisdom, tuning forks, singing bowls and chimes. She encourages open-hearted sharing with each other. While the topics for each class vary, they will be held on the first and third Fridays of March at 7:00 p.m. In April, Celia will offer “The Pearls of Wisdom,” in which she teaches that the voice is a special tuning fork. During this class, held two Sundays a month from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m, participants will share stories, unique experiences and discover their inner wisdom. Additionally, participants will make pearl and crystal bracelets. Each person will receive rainbow prayer beads along with a special Mother Mary prayer. Celia has dedicated over 25 years to helping clients lighten their hearts and prepare themselves for their own future awakenings.

he New Life Expo is America’s longest-running event focused on holistic enlightenment and rejuvenation, and its organizer, Mark Becker, says he’s grateful for the continued success and growth of what he started 28 years ago. “Last year I was happy not only to deliver an awesome New Life Expo in Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale and two in New York, but also to add the Vegetarian Vision Health and Wellness Expo in New York to help share the innate knowledge that we all know deep inside,” Becker says. “There’s an old saying that we are what we eat. Between GMOs infiltrating our fruits, vegetables and grains, chemtrail residue falling on them and pesticides and chemicals feeding them, we have to be more careful about when and where we shop. We also need to learn how to grow as much as we can at home—sprouts are the easiest to start with. Self-sustainability is the new norm.” The New Life Expo is slated to return to New York City’s Hotel New Yorker March 16-18 with 100 exhibitors & speakers including Mas Sajady, Kimberly Meredith, Brenda Cobb, Mark Becker,Gail Thackray, Thomas John, Jill Dahne, Dr. Joel Wallach, Robert Young, Dr. Hal Blatman and Hanson Tse.

They come in pain, and before lunch they don’t have as much pain, and some people, they have no pain.” The retreat offers a university-style education in natural healing arts—a history of qigong, traditional Chinese medicine, food-healing, foot reflexology and mastering five-element psychology for self-improvement. In addition, participants learn tui na massage with pressure points, the nine-breath method and qigong strength training.

Active Release Therapy at Hemberger Structural Integration

H

emberger Structural Integration is pleased to offer Active Release Therapy (ART) as part of its standard care services. “When muscles and other soft tissues are overused, pulls, tears, muscle spasms or contractures may occur. The body responds by producing scar tissue which restricts healthy tissues, preventing them from moving freely,” explains Ed Hemberger, LMT. “As scar tissue builds, muscles weaken and become shorter, nerves can become trapped and the tension that is placed on the tendons might even cause tendon inflammation or tendonitis. Eventually, all of this leads to a reduced range of motion, loss of strength and pain.” Scar tissue adhesion can be difficult for other types of therapy to address. ART uses much less pressure, but a lot Ed Hemberger, LMT more tension to tear the adhesion away with less likelihood of damaging healthy tissue. During ART treatment, the patient actively moves the affected structure while the practitioner presses or maintains contact on the injured area. This allows the practitioner to feel the structure as it moves under their contact, so they can effectively treat those restricted muscles, tendons or ligaments. Hemberger reports that ART patients often see results in three to six visits. Location: Hemberger Structural Integration has offices in Boonton, Livingston and Manhattan.

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

diabetes. Published in the American Journal of Epidemiology, the Singapore Chinese Health Study followed 63,257 adults between ages 45 and 74 for an average of 11 years each. It was determined that meat and poultry consumption increased diabetes incidence by 23 and 15 percent, respectively.

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

Toxic Effects of Lead on Reproductive Health

Saunas Lower Blood Pressure

In a new working paper from the West Virginia University Department of Economics, authors Daniel S. Grossman and David J.G. Slutsky found that during the lead-tainted water crisis in Flint, Michigan, from 2014 to 2016, there was a 58 percent rise in fetal deaths, and 275 fewer births compared to adjacent areas near Detroit.

University of Eastern Finland research on 1,621 men found that four to seven saunas per week can cut high blood pressure risk in half. Their conclusion states, “Regular sauna bathing is associated with reduced risk of hypertension, which may be a mechanism underlying the decreased cardiovascular risk associated with sauna use.”

TEEN MARIJUANA USE FOSTERS DEPRESSION Research from the University of Pittsburgh followed 158 boys and young men until the age of 22. Brain scans revealed that the teenagers using marijuana between the ages of 14 and 19 had a higher risk of depression as young adults. Marijuana users also had the lowest educational achievements. They suffered impaired connectivity in the nucleus accumbens part of the brain, which plays a central role in the reward circuit tied to two essential neurotransmitters: dopamine, which promotes desire; and serotonin, which affects satiety and inhibition. Another recent study of 521 Washington State University students noted that depressed 12-to-15year-olds were more likely to be using marijuana by age 18. Cindy Nolte ...Find your inner peace.

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

Floating Farm Helps Power UK Needs

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

Fossilized Financing

Renewable Energy Subsidies Lag Far Behind

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

Sweet Potato Project Encourages Enterprise

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

Sickly Salmon

Uncontrolled Lice Threaten Fish Industry

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

According to the United Nations, more than 800 million people today are regularly undernourished. By 2050, a rise of another 3 billion in global population is expected to escalate pressure on food supplies. The challenge means providing not just sufficient calories, but also a balanced diet for good health. Fish present a viable solution, but most of the world’s inventory is already overharvested. Some scientists propose “cutting out the middle fish” via the commercial production of marine microalgae as a staple food. They produce fatty acids, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, polymers and carbohydrates that humans need and that can be used to feed animals and farmed fish. Microalgae are found in both freshwater and marine aquatic systems. Only a handful of algal species are used commercially now, but hundreds of strains have similar potential. Meanwhile, innovators at Copenhagen’s future-living lab SPACE10 created the Algae Dome, a 13-foot-tall urban ecostructure powered by solar energy that pumps out oxygen and produces food in a closed-loop arrangement. This hyperlocal food system grows microalgae, which are among the world’s fastestgrowing organisms and can thrive on sunshine and water almost anywhere.

Veggie Renaissance Brits Cutting Back on Meat Eating

About 49 percent of those polled that have given up meat or are considering it say they feel prompted by health warnings. Other motivators include weight management (29 percent), worries about animal welfare (24 percent) and environmental concerns (24 percent).

Indoor Greenery Removes Airborne Toxins

Along with naturally beautifying a home, many indoor plants help purify air quality often contaminated by chemicals found in common household products and furnishings. A recent study by the State University of New York at Oswego found that bromeliads absorbed up to 80 percent of pollutants from volatile organic compounds (VOC) emitted by paint, furniture, printers, dry-cleaned clothes and other household products. Other plants that scored highly for purifying the air of VOCs in airtight container tests were dracaena and spider plants (ScienceAlert.com). In related news, peace lilies have been shown to be effective in reducing airborne ammonia. NASA scientists have discovered that Boston fern, rubber plants, English ivy, devil’s ivy, peace lily, mum and gerbera daisies help clear the air of the formaldehyde often used in insulation, carpeting and particleboard furniture. (RodalesOrganicLife.com) Environmental scientist B.C. Wolverton’s book How to Grow Fresh Air: 50 House Plants that Purify Your Home or Office cites ferns as another good plant for removing formaldehyde from the home. Ferns are nontoxic, making them good indoor plants for pet owners per the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Indoor levels of formaldehyde can also be reduced by potting areca palm, amstel king ficus and weeping fig plants, according to MotherEarthLiving.com. The website also cites how dragon tree plants can help remove xylene (used in solvents), trichloroethylene (found primarily in adhesives) and toluene (a solvent and gasoline additive) from the air. Beyond improving air quality, indoor plants also boost ambient oxygen levels, lower mold counts and serve as a natural humidifier and mood enhancer.

The Good Side of

CHOLESTEROL F by Dian Freeman

ew words today can bring about more discussion and debate than the word “cholesterol.” The discussion generally centers around how high or howw low one’s personal cholesterol levels are, while the debate generally addresses the best way to lower those numbers or even on how to eliminate cholesterol altogether. Such discussions and debates are based both upon misinformation and the lack of information about the value of cholesterol to the body. Why do we have cholesterol in the first place if it is so bad? Surely the design of the human body, one that has thrived for tens of thousands of years, is not as flawed as we are led to believe.

The brilliance of that design is being second-guessed by those in medicine who continually attempt a re-design. Common sense should tell us that if cholesterol weren’t needed for human survival it would not have been part of the human design in the first place. Modern medicine’s concern is to lower cholesterol levels without understanding and treating the cause of why cholesterol might be high. This action often lowers cholesterol to levels below its ability to fulfill its various functions for the health of the body. The liver produces cholesterol at a rate dictated by the body’s need. When toxins are present in the blood stream the liver

manufactures Low Density Lipoproteins, LDLs, (often called “bad cholesterol”) and sends them out into the blood stream to attach to the toxins and bind to them so that the toxins will be unable to cause damage to the body. The HDL, High Density Proteins, known as “good cholesterol,” is then sent to sweep up the toxin-loaded LDL so it can be cleared out of the body by way of the liver and bowel. Toxins eliminated, LDL levels can then return to normal. Thus, a high LDL level can be indicative of a high toxicity level in the body. This is a situation best alleviated by the natural clearing processes of the body. Other valuable services performed by cholesterol include the patching of cracks in arterial walls. Arteries are lined with muscle that must remain flexible for proper circulatory function. When the body senses an arterial crack, the liver sends cholesterol, a waxy flexible substance, to plug the crack, which, in turn, enhances arterial flexibility and circulation. Since sexual hormones are made in the cholesterol, lowering its levels often leads to impotency and infertility. Russian and Scandinavian studies have shown that men with low cholesterol have higher suicide rates and that severe depression is alleviated when low cholesterol returns to normal levels. Some forms of dementia have reportedly become reversed when low cholesterol levels return to normal, at which time brain function also often improves. This may be due to the fact that cholesterol-lowering programs include the

WITH THEIR REPUTATION for artistry, clinical excellence and more than 50 years of combined experience, Aesthetic Family Dentistry, PA offers a breakthrough treatment for gum recession. What is gum recession? Gum recession refers to the loss of gum tissue along the gum line. This can occur as a result of periodontal disease, the natural aging process, clenching and grinding, and abrasive habits. Since healthy gums are essential for a healthy mouth, having gum recession treated is important for lasting dental wellness. The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST) is a minimally invasive option for treating gum recession. Unlike traditional grafting techniques that involve the use of donor tissue or soft tissue grafts in order to restore the tissue loss, the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique requires no grafts, no sutures, and no incisions. It simply involves the adjustment of the existing tissue. While traditional grafting treatment is beneficial, better cosmetic results with enhanced patient experience can be achieved through the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique. Call today to schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Alan B. Steiner who has been personally trained by Dr. Chao. Before

avoidance of fat, a substance necessary for optimal brain function. A final result of artificially lowering cholesterol levels is exemplified in studies from Canada, Europe and Japan. These studies show that people with total cholesterol levels below 150 or 160 have triple the chance of getting cancer. The protective properties and functions of cholesterol are rarely, if ever, discussed or debated in the U.S. The statistics on the rate of damage from the side effects of cholesterol-lowering statin drugs are also rarely discussed. Both the side effect rates and the detrimental effects of low cholesterol should be part of a patient’s informed choice equation. All current statistics show that the rate of heart disease, heart attacks and strokes have not improved since the advent of statin use. In fact, the heart-health benefits being claimed for the use of statin drugs stipulate that those benefits are designated only for those at high-risk for heart disease. Drug commercials for statin drugs state as much in voice-over disclaimers. Yet, if asked, almost everyone who admits to taking cholesterol-lowering drugs will say they are doing so for their heart health. Years from now, historians may look back at the current cholesterol-lowering trend as detrimental to the health of the human body as the once touted medical practice of blood-letting and tonsil, uterus and gall bladder removal. Acute care, replacing and repairing broken parts, maintaining body fluids and functions and organ transplants are where medicine excels. The prevention of disease and reversal of chronic disease by living a healthy lifestyle, eating healthy food and using effective supplements is where self-responsible humans can excel. It is in the attempt to redesign natural processes that humans and medicine continually fail. The true debate over cholesterol should be whether to lower it at all and the discussion should be on how we can help cholesterol better fulfill its protective functions—naturally.

Upbeat Kids Five Steps to Positivity by Tamar Chansky

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

record and putting it down elsewhere, doing something active helps the brain engage in something enjoyable until our nervous system recovers. Thoughts, like a windup toy with its wheels against a wall, can keep spinning fruitlessly in place until manually turned in a new direction. Redirecting differs from distracting ourself from negative thoughts. Distractions play hide-and-seek with negativity; eventually, it will find us again. The master plan in caring for a child calls for us to first dismantle the power of whatever perspective is bullying them, correctly value ideas and then focus on what matters most. Whether we’re accepting or dismissing thoughts that suggest themselves, either way, we’re the boss because thoughts have only the power we give them and we are equipped to let them float on by or to amend, correct or replace them. Psychologist Tamar Chansky, Ph.D., is the founder and director of the Children’s and Adult Center for OCD and Anxiety, in Plymouth Meeting, PA. Her many books include Freeing Your Child from Negative Thinking. For more information, visit TamarChansky.com.

Healing Emotional Trauma

V

By Philip J. Cohen, MD, ND irtually any emotional trauma can be healed with the proper therapy techniques. Trauma can be categorized by the four essential principles of the emotional causation of illness. The first principle is that emotional traumas, and the blocks which follow, are at the basis of over 90% of illness. The second is that emotional trauma has a trans-generational origin over 90% of the time. Furthermore, emotional trauma creates blocks encoded within the autonomic nervous system. Finally, when these autonomic blocks are resolved, this brings healing to the individual as well as future generations.

The roots of physical illness largely begin within the emotional life. Emotional traumas affect our behaviors, social patterning, generate internal contradictions, shape how we see ourselves and ultimately shape where and how our physical bodies will fail. Once structured within the automatic nervous system (ANS), emotional blocks are self-perpetuating and cause miscommunications between the brain and the tissues that lie along the blocked autonomic pathways. Fortunately, the ANS is remarkably accessible for treatment, since about 90% of all autonomic nerve fibers reside superficially within the skin. Using interventions targeting the ANS, doctors have seen miraculous results. Widespread and seemingly intractable psoriasis has evaporated after the resolution of waracquired trauma, autoimmune disease has completely reversed after a burdensome guilt was relieved, and allergies resolved after the patient made peace with a difficult past. With the healing of emotional trauma, there are improvements in mood, energy, outlook, sleep, concentration, personal relationships, productivity, athletic and artistic performance, selfesteem and inner peace. The most powerful healing involves love, compassion, and forgiveness towards oneself and others. Optimal mind-body healing is best achieved when the healing of emotional trauma is part of a comprehensive approach. This includes optimizing nutrition, identifying food intolerances, addressing toxic environmental exposures, normalizing the gastrointestinal microbial ecology, supporting optimal mitochondrial function, normalizing the immune response, correcting hormone balance and optimizing sleep. The goal of treatment is not simply eliminating a particular disease, but for the patient to thrive and blossom, opening the way for a happier and more fulfilling life. Dr. Philip J. Cohen, MD, ND is a founding member of Next Generation Medical and Wellness, an integrative medicine practice with a holistic approach to patient care. Through a combination of functional, orthomolecular, anti-aging, and bioregulatory medicines, highly individualized treatment plans are created that maximize and support the body’s innate power to heal, and encourage conscious living and lifestyle.

On Philosophy:

The Yogic Path By Rosie Lazroe

S

imply put, yoga is an ancient technology that uses physical, mental and spiritual tools to allow an individual to steadily gain discipline, strength and self control in all areas of life, while cultivating peace of mind, expanded awareness and equanimity of mind, body and spirit. Modern day practitioners primarily practice three aspects of the yogic path, which are asana (yoga postures), pranayama (breath work), and dhyana (meditation). These tools are quite effective in ridding the body of physical toxins and the mind of stressful thoughts. However, yoga is so much more than yoga postures and deep breathing. Traditional yoga follows an 8 fold path that has the potential to liberate the body, mind and spirit from worldly distractions, and in turn lead the practitioner to greater levels of health and happiness.

The 8 limbs of yoga are: Yamas (ethical guidelines) Niyamas (personal observances) Asana (physical postures) Pranayama (breathing excersises) Pratyahara (control over the senses) Dharana (concentration) Dhyana (meditation) Samadhi (pure consciousness) Over the years, I have found these guidelines to challenge me within many aspects of my life. American culture is filled with deadlines, competition and instant gratification. As we strive to survive, the ego can easily trick us into regularly functioning from fight/flight mode. Under these circumstances, we are more likely to escape through an array of unhealthy habits. Stepping onto the yoga mat to detox and decompress through postures, breath

work and meditation are essential components of yoga. But what are we to do once we step off of the yoga mat? It is my understanding that the 8 limbs of yoga offer a road map, leading the ego toward an honest & disciplined lifestyle both on and off the mat. Here, the practitioner is allowed to be present with both the positive and negative aspects of self without pressure, guilt or shame. These yogic tools encourage detachment & balance, allowing the practitioner to continuously evolve into a better human being without being attached to an end result. It is my experience, that when we incorporate this type of thinking on the mat, we become stronger off the mat. And when we become stronger off the mat, we begin to see positive shifts in our surroundings. Although the journey to self-transformation can take a lifetime, (or several), the yogic path is definitely one that can lead us toward a deeper understanding of self. I encourage all yoga practitioners to research the 8 fold path. Attend workshops, read the sutras, converse with others and explore these principles within your personal yoga practice. As we strive toward better versions of self, I trust we will gain a deeper understanding of humanity as a whole. Namaste.

Black Pepper (Piper nigrum)

SPICE UP HEALTHY COOKING Six Seasonings with Surprising Payoffs by Amber Lanier Nagle

S

pices add a punch of extra flavor to our favorite dishes, but they also possess proven health and wellness properties. From regulating blood sugar to reducing inflammation to helping control appetite, behold the magnificent six.

Garlic (Allium sativum)

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

“Garlic may also reduce the duration and severity of colds and flu when taken at the onset of symptoms and each day afterwards,” says de la Forêt, citing a study published in Clinical Nutrition. “I mince a clove and mix it with honey to make it easier to swallow.”

Turmeric (Curcuma longa)

Dr. Lipi Roy, a clinical assistant professor at the New York University School of Medicine and blogger at SpicesForLifemd. com, considers turmeric the golden spice of life. “In addition to its role in Indian and Asian cuisine, turmeric is used in traditional Indian medicine to treat common

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

Cinnamon (Cinnamomum cassia and Cinnamomum verum)

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

Ginger (Zingiber officinale)

“Ginger is a rhizome people have traditionally used medicinally to help with digestive issues, including upset stomachs

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

ailments like stomach upset, ulcers, flatulence, arthritis, sprains, wounds and skin and eye infections,” she says. A study published in Oncogene concluded that curcumin (the active ingredient in turmeric) was a more potent anti-inflammatory agent than aspirin or ibuprofen. Try adding a little turmeric and ground black pepper to soups, salads and sauces.

conscious eating


and nausea,” says Karen Kennedy, of Concord, Ohio, a horticulturist and educator at the Herb Society of America. In a study published in the World Journal of Gastroenterology, researchers concluded that gastric emptying and relief was more rapid after subjects with frequent or severe stomach upsets ingested 1.2 grams of ginger. Ginger is also linked to increased circulation and reduced inflammation. A study published in Phytotherapy Research noted that this spice also worked in alleviating migraines equal to the pharmaceutical sumatriptan (Imitrex). According to a study in the journal Arthritis, it’s an effective tool in the battle against rheumatoid arthritis. Ginger adds a zing of healthy flavor to hot teas and stir-fried veggies such as broccoli, green beans, carrots or mushrooms.

Paprika (Capsicum annuum)

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

Now Anyone Can Meditate at the Dentist! Dr. Joseph Moussa and Dr. Peter Silver are proud to announce that Montclair Dental Spa and Holistic Dentistry of New Jersey use this all natural relaxation technology. NuCalm® is a proprietary clinical system that calms the brain within minutes by bringing alert beta brain wave function down to the alpha/theta ranges (deep relaxation). The system is predicated on neuropsychobiology and neurobioinformatics and was developed over eight years by leading neuroscientists. NuCalm is unique because it creates deep relaxation without using narcotics or controlled substances, causes no significant side effects, and requires no recuperative time or supervision. NuCalm organically entrains brainwaves to a frequency that promotes relaxation and calm. Beta brain waves (13 Hz-30 Hz per second) are associated with day-to-day wakefulness – mental activity consisting of cognitive, sensory, and motor activities. High beta brain waves (23 Hz-40 Hz per second) are associated with fear and anxiety. NuCalm brings the patient’s brain waves from beta or high beta to the alpha and theta ranges (4 Hz-12 Hz per second). Alpha brain waves are considered the first stage of sleep and are typically associated with relaxation and peacefulness during deep meditation and biofeedback. A person with brain waves in the alpha range is physically unable to be anxious. The patented NuCalm system leverages the synergistic benefits of four sensory applications:

NuCalm Cream The NuCalm proprietary orthomolecular formula has been developed over several years to maximize the

body’s natural relaxation response with NuCalm. The proprietary formula is only available in the NuCalm system and includes structured, nutrient-sourced building blocks that rapidly convert to powerful messengers that interrupt the stress response.

Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) The Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation device produces low amounts of electrical current (close to the cell’s own electrical values – microcurrent is less than 1/10,000th of an Amp). This easy-to-use device has been cleared by the FDA for the treatment of anxiety, depression, and insomnia. Research over the past 50 years indicates an increase in metabolism of neurotransmitters as evidenced by an increase in the metabolites of the neurochemicals.

NuCalm Neuroacoustic

The proprietary neuroacoustic software provided in the NuCalm system uses Frequency-Following-Response (FFR) that initiates a change in brain waves. According to extensive research, a scientifically validated neurophysiologic response is initiated when an auditory pacing signal is presented to the brain. Solace Lifesciences has developed significant advances in the design of binaural and monaural beat sound acoustics, which are overlaid with classical music and presented through a stereo headset.

NaturalAwakeningsNJ.com

The neuroacoustic brain entrainment software moves the patient’s brain waves from the high beta brain wave frequencies associated with anxiety (23 Hz-40 Hz) to brain wave frequency patterns of alpha and theta (4 Hz-12 Hz). These brain waves are associated with deep relaxation and calmness.

NuCalm Light-Blocking Eye Mask

NuCalm’s light-blocking eye masks are used to block light from the optic nerve resulting in up to a 30% increase in alpha wave production in the occipital cortex of the brain. This helps maintain deep relaxation. Other options are wearing our sunglasses or just closing your eyes. Some reviews by patients who have tried NuCalm: “Loved it! It really helped me get through a procedure I was nervous about.” – Diana “I can’t believe that was 90 minutes – only felt like it was 30 minutes tops!” – Craig “NuCalm was a very relaxing, therapeutic experience. I have chronic neck and shoulder pain. After NuCalm I had no pain, which is remarkable. Can I have this done every month?” – Judy

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

mericans love to explore ethnic cuisines and then put their own “more is better” spin on them, like a Chinese stir-fry turned into chop suey

with fried rice or a pasta side dish supersized into a whole meal. “We’ve Americanized dishes to the extent that they don’t have their original health

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

benefits,” says Dr. Daphne Miller, a family physician in the San Francisco Bay area and author of The Jungle Effect: The Healthiest Diets from Around the World—Why They Work and How to Make Them Work for You. Here are five popular—and healthy— world cuisines, known for their great dishes, star ingredients and health-enhancing practices.

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

a-Lot Wakame Sea Vegetable Soup in her cookbook The Japanese Kitchen: 250 Recipes in a Traditional Spirit can be made with chicken or vegetable broth. Other healthy ingredients like sesame oil, fresh ginger, scallions and garlic boost its health benefits.

South Indian

Ingredients. South India—including the states of Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Telangana—offers many plant-based dishes that feature coconut, rice and spices such as turmeric, known for decreasing inflammation, according to the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine. Varieties of dried split peas called dal [dal is singular and plural] are used in vegetable curries and ground to make the glutenfree savory crepes known as dosa or puffy white idlis for a snack or breakfast. South India native and current Minneapolis resident Raghavan Iyer, teacher, consultant and author of many cookbooks, including 660 Curries, says, “One tech-

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

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

Lebanese

Ingredients. “So much about Lebanese cuisine is ‘on trend’ with our tart and sour flavors from lemon, sumac and pomegranate molasses, a wide array of vegetarian and vegan dishes, plus a tradition of pickling, called mouneh, and yogurt and cheese-making,” says food blogger Maureen Abood, author of Rose Water & Orange Blossoms: Fresh and Classic Recipes from My Lebanese Kitchen. “Lebanese cuisine is extraordinarily healthy, fitting squarely into the Mediter34

North Central NJ Edition

ranean diet.” Abood lives in East Lansing, Michigan, where she loves to use summer cherries and berries in her Lebanese-inspired dishes. According to Abood, another reason why Lebanese food is so popular is that Lebanese immigrants to the U.S. now outnumber the native population of their mother country. Practice. Gathering to share food is a hallmark of Lebanese hospitality. “The Lebanese style of eating includes maza; many small shared plates of remarkable variety,” says Abood. “Food as medicine” is also a Lebanese practice, according to a study in the journal Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine. One Great Dish: “Many of my favorite Lebanese dishes are plant-based,” says Abood. “We love to stuff everything from cabbage to summer squash to grape leaves with vegetarian fillings, and cook them in a garlic or tomato broth. Every week, we make and eat mujaddara, a lentil and rice or bulgur pilaf with deeply caramelized onions.” Pair with any Lebanese salad, such as one she makes with sweet cherries and walnuts for “a perfectly healthy and crazy-delicious meal.”

Vietnamese

Ingredients. Vietnamese cooking emphasizes fresh herbs and leafy greens, green papaya, seafood, rice and condiments. A study in the British Journal of Nutrition found that green or unripe papaya contains more healthy carotenoids (lutein, beta-carotene and lycopene) than tomatoes or carrots. Practice. The preferred style of Vietnamese cooking is steaming or simmering, using less fat. It also encourages communal

NaturalAwakeningsNJ.com

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

wise words

Ilona Selke on the

Power of Dreaming Big by April Thompson

F

or 30 years, international bestselling author, teacher and speaker Ilona Selke has inspired thousands of people worldwide to create a more fulfilling life by discovering the power of their consciousness. She’s the author of six books, including Dream Big: The Universe is Listening and The Big Secret, co-authored with Jack Canfield. Her Living from Vision course, available in six languages including Chinese, teaches how to use the power of visualization to tap into our highest potential and deepest dreams in order to manifest miracles. Born in the Himalayas to German parents, Selke spent her first three years in Afghanistan speaking Persian and German, and then grew up in Germany. She moved to the U.S. at age 20 to study philosophy, where she met her husband and partner, Don Paris. The couple spent 25 years studying and communicating with dolphins in natural waters, experiences shared through her books Wisdom of the Dolphins and Dolphins, Love and Destiny. They split their time between a geodesic dome home on a Northwest Pacific island and the Shambala retreat center they founded in Bali.

What is key to manifesting our dreams and desires? It’s a four-step process. First, form a clear description in your mind, positively framed and based on your passion. No matter how big the dream, if you are behind it heart and soul, you will manifest miracles. Next, imagine the scenario as if it has already happened. The third and most vital step is to feel the feeling of your fulfilled wish as if it has already manifested. 36

North Central NJ Edition

Fourth, create a metaphorical image that represents the feeling. By applying this method, our clients have manifested a desired pregnancy, funding for an overseas orphanage and redemption of a suicidal teen. In the latter case, the young man went on to focus on his dream of learning jazz piano well enough to play benefit concerts for children being treated for cancer.

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

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

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

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

FRUGAL FOODIE Practical Uses for Aging Produce by Judith Fertig

W

hen Jacques Pépin was growing up in France during World War II, he watched his mother use every scrap of food to meet the family’s needs, and then send him to live with a farmer in summer so her growing son could eat fresh from the farm. Today, the internationally renowned PBS-TV chef and cookbook author carries these sensibilities forward at his home and studio in Madison, Connecticut. “In Europe, and certainly in France,

healthy food is much more expensive,” he says. “In America, a chef may have the person that washes dishes also prepare salads. With lettuce, he’ll cut off the whole top, cut out the heart and throw out the rest.” U.S. restaurant kitchens mirror home kitchens, where the average family throws away a quarter of the food they buy, wasting an average of $2,200 a year. These scraps mean wasted food and money at home, plus misspent resources to grow and transport the

food. According to a report by the National Resource Defense Council, “Getting food to our tables eats up 10 percent of the total U.S. energy budget, uses 50 percent of U.S. land and swallows 80 percent of the fresh water consumed in the United States.” To save money and also live better, here are just some of many easy ways to use up every bit of fresh produce we buy.

Asparagus Ends

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

Broccoli, Swiss Chard and Spinach Stems

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

Carrot and Beet Tops

Very fine carrot tops can be used like parsley. With a food processor or high-speed blender, transform them into a favorite pesto or salsa verde recipe, suggests Registered Dietitian and nutritionist Madeline Basler, of Long Island, New York. One of her go-to’s is her Earth Day Carrot Top Pesto (Tinyurl.com/ CarrotTopPestoRecipe). Beet greens can be sautéed like spinach, in a little extra-virgin olive oil with garlic, as a veggie side.

Fruit Snippets Stray grapes, a half-finished peach, overripe bananas, wrinkly berries and the core of a pineapple can all go in the freezer, and then into a smoothie.

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

Lemon Peels The limonene in lemon peels is a natural cleaner and degreaser, says blogger Jill Nystul, of Salt Lake City, Utah. She makes her

own Citrus Vinegar All-Purpose Cleanser by simply packing lemon peels in a jar and topping with vinegar. See how at Tinyurl.com/ HomemadeCitrusCleaners.

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

Nine Tips to Tackle Food Waste at Home

J

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

1

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

2

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

3

Store food in safe, sealable glass containers, so it’s easy to see.

4 5 6 7 8

Avoid clutter in the refrigerator and freezer; if we can’t see it, we won’t eat it.

Treat expiration and sell-by dates as just guidelines. There is wiggle room in both, advises Bloom. Donate extra pantry items to food banks and places that provide hot meals for those in need. Preserve the bounty of the garden. Learn how to make quick pickles, pasta sauces and foods to freeze. Join a food exchange. Emily Paster, cofounder of Chicago Food Swap, helps farmers, foragers, home cooks, gardeners, bakers and canners trade or barter their produce and products.

9

Go social. PDX Food Swap, in Portland, Oregon; BK Swappers, in Brooklyn, New York; and ATX Swappers, in Austin, Texas, combine food exchange events with a potluck.

Qi Revolution Energizes New Jersey

Internationally Known Practitioner Visits Garden State

J

by Sarah Buehrle

eff Primack has brought qigong from the esoteric realm to the accessible world. Primack is founder of the Supreme Science Qigong Center and creator of and instructor at Qi Revolution, a conference he hosts all over the U.S. teaching his system of qigong, breathing exercises and food science. He’s brought Qi Revolution annually to cities across America since 2005, and will be at the Somerset Cultural Center, April 7 to 9. “Philadelphia has been a responsive area for us, but we’ve never been to New Jersey before. Between 300 and 400 people will be doing qigong under one roof, moving and breathing and practicing together, and that’s a powerful thing,” Primack said in a phone interview from Hawaii. “I think a lot of people, they show up because they know the energy’s going to be there.” Primack explained that qigong is controlled breathing along with slow, repetitive tai chi-like movements that help people unlock and build qi, or life force, within themselves, to promote health and energy. He said that by the end of the conference, attendees will have some knowledge to create and maintain good health. “We start out with a presentation about what qiqong is, most people don’t know what it is,” says Primack. “Then we’re doing qigong, standing style, Empty Force. It’s one of the most powerful kinds of qigong that I’ve ever learned. There’s this energy field— it’s a magnetic energy field, and you feel it. Many come in pain and before lunch they don’t have as much pain, and some people, they have no pain.”

James Quail, an independent massage therapist and energy worker, went to see Primack’s Qi Revolution in Atlanta knowing nothing about it. “It was the most eyeopening experience. It was real,” Quail said. “I really respect Jeff. Nobody would have known this much about qigong unless they did historical research, but a whole bunch of people go “Oh well, three days of training for 149 bucks. . .” U.S. military veterans can attend for free. A week after Quail attended the Qi Revolution, he attended a Supreme Science Qigong Center certification program, and over the next several months earned level 2 and level 3 certifications. He began presenting with Primack and Qi Revolution. “That has probably been one of the most stabilizing things I’ve gotten into or been involved with, and it’s really been nice to pass it off and hand it to other people,” Quail said of practicing qigong and Qi Revolution. “The whole room seems to move at the same motion. There’ll be this power in the room; everyone just locks into their space. It’s even peaceful to talk about, and once experienced it can be brought back at any time.” Tina Rubke, a Brookhaven licensed massage therapist, said she went to her first Qi Revolution seminar several years ago, because it offered lower-than-average-cost continuing education credits for her profession. She went back a second time because there was more to the accessibility than price. “It’s also an amazing class, and that was what got me to go back the second time. It’s really fun,” Rubke said. “One of the things

Jeff does that I think is really good, he helps those less fit people to feel comfortable to be there and still do it. There’s people in the back row in chairs. It’s an all-abilities class. He’ll show alternatives to moves.” Qi Revolution also includes Primack’s research into food-healing, which he conducts in consultation with Claudia Gabrielle, M.D. Much of that research has been published in Primack’s book, Conquering Any Disease. The book focuses on foods that are specific to healing, such as kiwi for aiding asthma and okra for helping with heart disease. Primack has created a recipe for sweet red pepper paste that is a concentrated form of phytochemicals, and he has started giving out samples to Qi Revolution attendees. “The main thing that is new, always new with every year and that’s why we get a lot of people who come every year, is that the food-healing science that we share is pretty groundbreaking. And now we talk about oxidation and cholesterol, oxidation and heart disease and cancer, foods for cancer, and food for diabetes. We back it with science,” Primack said. “We’ve always talked about those things, but I’m always learning new things.” Rubke bought a three-horsepower blender after attending a Qi Revolution, and she took Primack’s advice about using avocado pits in smoothies. She also practices his breath work when she’s angry or stressed. Primack wants readers to try Qi Revolution in New Jersey in April. “I know everybody’s busy right now and it’s 2018; everybody’s going to go full speed with their goals and aspirations, and I would say, ‘Breathe, breathe deeper than you’ve ever breathed, get training and become healthier so that you have more energy to make more money and you don’t just go forward with no-Qi in your hands,” Primack said. “Get real energy going into the new year.” Jeff Primack’s weekend workshop will be held at the Somerset Cultural Center, in Somerset, for three days of training April 7 to 9. Open to the public, the cost is $149 for all three days. Members of fire and police departments and military are admitted free. For more information, call 800-298-8970 or visit QiRevolution. com.

A Full-Body Workout for Busy People

W

by Locke Hughes

hen life makes a long workout impossible, a 10-minute, total-body fitness routine can be super-efficient and effective, if done right. To maximize results, strategically order the exercises to work different muscles each time, allowing one set of muscles to rest while working another. This is the basis for a 10-step workout that Franklin Antoian, an American Council on Exercise-certified personal trainer and founder of iBodyFit, created for SilverSneakers. The steps can be part of a regular routine or done on their own three times a week every other day, gradually working up to five days a week. Needed equipment includes a chair, light dumbbells (or filled water bottles or food cans), a yoga block (or small soft ball or pillow) and a watch or timer. Given extra time, warm up by walking in place for five minutes, and then perform each exercise in order for one minute, doing as many reps as possible. Try not to rest between exercises. If a full minute feels too challenging, start with 45 seconds of exercise and 15 seconds of rest.

1

ARM CIRCLES. Stand with feet hip-width apart. Extend arms straight out to each side at shoulder height with palms facing down. Swing arms forward in a circular motion for 30 seconds, and then backward for 30 seconds. Keep shoulders down and back and elbows slightly bent.

2

SHOULDER SHRUG. Stand with feet hip-width apart. Hold dumbbells with arms down, palms facing inward. Slowly raise shoulders as if trying to touch the earlobes.

With foot flexed and knee bent, slowly raise the right foot toward the ceiling until the thigh is parallel with the floor. Pause, and then lower. Continue for 30 seconds, and then repeat with the left leg. To make it easier, try it while standing, keeping the lifted leg straight, and hold the back of a chair for support.

Reclaim Your Magic Make Your World Wondrous Again

W

by Paige Leigh Reist

e are all born with magic, but somewhere along the way, life tends to stomp it out of us. When we are living in our magic, we become curious, passionate and energetic. We thrive. Here are five ways to begin to reclaim our own special vibrancy.

1

LIVE WITH EARTH’S CYCLES Our planet teaches by example how to live in harmony with the seasons. Rest in the winter, awake to new beginnings in spring and rejoice in summer’s bounty. Give extra thanks in autumn. Live by and with the land, and watch how goodness magically blooms into being.

2

EXERCISE INTUITION Trusting in our intuition is generally discouraged from a young age. We’re taught to ignore it in favor of logic, following social scripts and displaying expected behaviors. We’re told whom to look to for answers, definitions of right and wrong and true and false, and that grown-ups always know best. A powerful way to counteract this conditioning is to come to trust ourselves. Intuition is like a muscle—the more we use it, the more powerful it becomes. The spiritual “still small voice” won’t lead us astray.

3

COMMUNE Speaking our truth is transformative. To be heard, validated and supported is a

powerful catalyst of personal growth and supports self-worth. Whenever possible, make time to meet with kindred spirits and share personal stories, wisdom and struggles around the proverbial fire.

4

CELEBRATE Spend time thinking about what it is that comprises the essence of oneself and celebrate it—that is where magic lives. Often, the qualities that carry our magic may have been put down. Sensitivity can be considered weakness. Determination might be termed stubbornness. But if we unabashedly love and celebrate these qualities in ourself, we begin to re-conceptualize them as sources of strength and power, and magic seeps through.

5

STOP ACCEPTING THE MUNDANE Let go of anything that does more to limit rather than propel progress. Review media habits, relationships, jobs and character traits, and be ruthless in pruning what needs to go. Try to interact only with people, activities and things that produce glowing feelings of inspiration, fulfillment and buzzing vitality. Assess habits honestly and choose meaningful substance over comfort, ease and familiarity. Paige Leigh Reist is a writer from Calgary, Alberta, Canada, who blogs at TheWholesomeHandbook.com.

FEEDBACK LOOPS OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY AND BIOFEEDBACK SERVICES

LIVING WATERS WELLNESS CENTER

Biofeedback uses sensors attached to the body to magnify your body’s reactions in the form of a signal (lights, sounds, numbers, and colors) increasing awareness about your response at the present moment. Using this information or feedback along with therapeutic techniques you can learn how to regulate central nervous system functions, calming mind and body. Also called applied psychophysiology, biofeedback is a well researched and effective complimentary medical treatment for conditions such as chronic pain, stress related problems, anxiety with somatic components (muscle tension, gastrointestinal discomfort, headaches, tics, and pain) and attention disorders. It is also beneficial for improving performance in academics (reducing test anxiety, improving focused concentration). Please visit the above website for more details.

PROGRESSIVE HOLISTIC DENTAL THERAPIES TRANSFORM QUALITY OF LIFE Patients travel from around the world to experience world class quality, service and expertise Denville is famous for its medical community. So, it’s no surprise that a perfect smile is a must have item in this friendly town. Hand crafting those smiles is the life work of Dr. Steiner and Dr. Fine. Their office’s reputation has spread so far that they now treat patients from around the world; often doing more smile makeovers in a single month that some dentists do in a lifetime. They also offer an amazing alternative for those living with missing teeth. This dramatic advancement in the field of dental implantology now makes it possible for many patients to switch from dentures to permanent implant supported teeth in only a few hours. This new approach can be used to replace a single missing tooth or an entire mouth. Patients leave the office after just one appointment with a beautiful and strong smile. Discomfort is so minimal that most patients eat a light meal that evening. Upon entering the front door you will immediately know that this is no ordinary dental office, because that’s what most people say upon seeing it for the first time. Among the practice’s notable patients are actresses, actors, astronauts, models and TV personalities. However most of the doctor’s patients are everyday people who just want to look their best. Drs. Steiner, Fine and Kwiatkowski have focused their practice on those areas about which they are highly passionate. (After all you wouldn’t ask your family doctor to do heart surgery.) Those areas are Cosmetic Dentistry. Trained at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute for advanced dental studies, they have devoted over sixty combined years to perfecting their skills and have placed over 100,000 cosmetic restorations. Their main focus is on CoSMeT­ IC and FULL MoUTH reCoNSTrUCTIoN cases. This includes Implant Dentistry and Neuromuscular orthodontics, which can avoid unecessary removal of teeth. Many people do not realize that dental problems may be the cause of headaches, migraines, shoulder, back and neck pain, noisy jaw joints and pains in the TMJ. Drs. Steiner, Fine and Kwiatkowski pride themselves in having Morris County’s premier head, neck and jaw pain relief center. Their office also offers a “limited warranty” that provides free repair or replacement of restorative dental work, when a patient’s regular hygiene visits are maintained. This kind of security could only be offered by truly World Class Dentists. This is why their motto is: “Experienced professionals make the difference.” Aesthetic Family Dentistry is pleased to offer Gentle Laser Periodontal Therapy (GLPT) to treat moderate to advanced gum disease, a condition linked to other serious health issues including heart disease and diabetes. This gentle and less invasive superior state-of-the-art procedure eliminates the need for traditional surgery. oral DNA and HPV testing is also available to determine a patient’s periodontal health, as well as detect any possible genetic proclivity toward gum issues.
