NUTRITION

How to Make Your Own Rose Hips By: Michael Brooks

I

was enjoying a long (very long) hike over the weekend that brought me in contact with a wide variety of plants and animals. While taking a breather at a ranger station, I was admiring a plant which had what looked to be cherry tomatoes or some kind of red berry sprouting from its branches. The ranger said I was looking at a rose bush and the red fruit it was producing went by the name of rose hips. “Rose Hips” I shrieked. I had known of the supplement for years but had never seen a real live rose hip. I was informed that rose hips form after the rose bloom has died. Almost any rose variety will produce hips but the ranger informed me that the Rosa rugosa formed the tastiest variety if you planned on eating them. Further research confirmed that Rosa rugosa is the bush of choice for tasty rose hips.

Why Eat Rose Hips?

Probably the best reason to eat or drink rose hips is the incredible source of vitamin C that it provides. Studies have shown vitamin C to be helpful with fighting infection, colds/flu, sore throat, fatigue and stress to name a few. Hips provide almost 20 times the amount of vitamin C found in Oranges.

How do I Grow Rose Hips?

As I have mentioned, there seams to be a consensus that Rosa rugosa is the best plant to use for growing rose hips. Let the blooms die on the bush (resist the temptation to cut the beautiful blooms, the more you cut the less hips you will produce) and the hips will begin to form. They will start out green and begin to turn red similar to the way a tomato ripens. Harvest them when 6

they become completely red but not overripe, this usually occurs after the first frost.

Preparing the Hips

You can use rose hips either fresh off the vine, dried, or preserved. To dry the fruit spread the hips out on a

For me, the fun is in making your own hips. If you just want vitamin C there isn’t really a whole lot of difference between taking regular vitamin C supplement and vitamin C with rose hips (except the price, hips will cost a bit more).

Recipes

If you are fortunate enough to have roses at your home, here are some recipes you might want to try:

Hip Tea Recipe

Place 4-6 hips (prepared as noted above) in the bottom of a non-aluminum pan Add 2 cups of cool water Allow water to come to a boil Let simmer for about 30 minutes (less if you like a weaker tea) Strain and add sweetener to taste clean surface. Allow them to dry until the skin begins to feel dry and slightly shriveled. At this point, split the hips in half and take out all of the seeds and tiny hairs in the center. Remember not to use aluminum pans or utensils as this will destroy some of the vitamin C. After the seeds are removed you can let the hips dry completely. Don’t wait to remove the seeds until hips are completely dry or you will have trouble with de-seeding. Store the dried hips in sealed plastic bags. Freeze for long term use or put in the refrigerator if you plan on using over a two or three month period. Hips can be eaten as a semi-sweet snack at anytime. You can also make tea and preserves; I have listed two recipes below to get you started.

What about Supplements?

Rose hip supplements are available at most health food and vitamin stores. JULY 2017

Hip Marmalade

Prepare hips as noted above and soak in cool water for several hours Bring hips soaking in water to a boil for about 20 minutes Strain out water Add one cup of brown sugar or granulated sugar per one cup of the strained water Boil the sweetened water until it becomes thick and syrupy Add the previously boiled hips and continue boiling until hips are tender Pour into jars and seal Enjoy!

Along with his peers, Neel Patel supported his friends and family with encouragement and reminders to raise money and awareness about the community involvement of BAPS Charities. Neel is just one of 450 community members who supported the annual BAPS Charities’ Walk Green 2017 walkathon in Tampa, FL on June 11, 2017. Building off an existing relationship with The Nature Conservancy, this year’s walkathon had participants of all ages come out and support the Nature Conservancy and its Plant a Billion Trees campaign.

ave you ever imagined enjoying refreshing and natural coconut in your own private paradise? Cascadia Managing Brands wants you to savor coconut water anywhere, in the easiest, most authentic and most convenient way, with nothing additional required for opening. So they’ve researched and worked with engineers to make this possible. The solution? A patented, easy-opening system that is applied directly to the fruit, which makes Genuine Coconut the only organic, pure, and virgin coconut water on the market that you can drink in its original container. They keep the coconut’s natural protection so that the water it contains is completely aseptic and virgin and 100% free from any type of microbe, thereby preserving all its flavor and aroma. Plus, these coconuts come from organic crops that respect biological cycles and contribute to the health of agricultural systems. It is a unique ring made by recycled coconut husk fiber and natural resin. At this way we are able to achieve that Genuine Coconut becomes a 100% organic certified, ecological and almost totally biodegradable drink thanks the use of all the coconut resources. Genuine Coconut is USDA Organic, Non GMO Project Verified and a member of Sedex. It is currently available in Europe and Canada in stores including Whole Foods, Marks and Spencer, CarreFour, Costco (July 2017), Loblaw (July 2917), and other fine retailers. Genuine Coconut’s suggested retail price in the United States is $3.49-$3.99 per coconut. Every coconut contains approximately 12 fluid ounces of organic coconut water. Tampa Bay Wellness


The Six Hidden Causes of “Chronic” Illness Dr. Bradley Nelson reveals the Six Hidden Causes of Chronic Illness:

Infections/Infestations – Infections including viral, bacterial, fungal, and mold, are the number 1 killer worldwide. Infections and parasitic infestations are an often overlooked cause of chronic illness Structural Misalignment – The brain and spinal cord are connected to all the organs of the body via spinal nerves. When a spinal vertebra becomes misaligned, it puts pressure on the nerve that it houses, instead of protecting it. This creates poor communication between the brain and organ, resulting in poor organ health and eventually, disease. Nutritional Deficiencies – Most people have nutritional deficiencies, mainly because we don’t eat the way we should and our foods are grown in depleted soils. Over about 80% of the farmland soil in the US is considered sterile and heavily treated with artificial fertilizers.

Toxicity – The average person takes in about 14 pounds of toxins per year from food additives, preservatives, artificial food coloring and environmental sources, all of which can contribute to imbalance and chronic illness. Circuits and Systems – The circuits

in your body are similar to the fuses in a house, with certain organs and muscles are on the same circuit. Imbalance in one of them can cause illness in the organs, glands and muscles that are on the same circuit.

Trapped Emotional Energies –­ Unresolved emotions from traumatic and negative events are present in almost every case of chronic illness, Dr. Nelson says. He explains how to use a form of muscle testing called applied kinesiology to identify trapped emotions, and release them using techniques he pioneered in his book “The Emotion Code.” “I’ve been practicing holistic medicine for nearly three decades, and it still surprises me when I see patients who have

been told there is no hope for them,” Dr. Nelson says. “I’ve helped so many people to recover from ‘incurable’ illnesses so it’s silly to me that people are still being given diagnoses like this. Especially when there’s so much we now know about energy medicine and how bringing the body to a state of energetic balance can do marvelous things and allow the body to heal itself naturally.” For more information, visit the online press kit http://www.drbradleynelson.presskit247.com and public sites www.DrBradleyNelson.com and www.

aby goats in pajamas and fainting goats are some of the adorable farm animals enjoying a viral moment. Local farms like Hat Trick Ranch in Thonotosassa and Geraldson Community Farm in Bradenton are using goats’ popularity to their benefit by teaming with certified yoga instructors. During goat yoga, goats roam around during the yoga practice. Sometimes the goats nibble on the mats, bleat loudly or climb onto people’s backs during poses. It may sound odd, but the classes routinely sell out. At $20-$30 per class, goat yoga is a fun novelty experience, but serious yogis may want to pass. Laura Fontanills, B2 Communications

What is Flaxseed Oil? By: GiGi Konwin

F

laxseed Oil is also known as Linseed Oil. The oil is created from the seeds of the flax plant. Typically, linseed oil is the yellowish drying oil that is extracted and used as a carrier in oil paint and also as a wood finish. When the flax seed is cold pressed without the extraction, it is called flaxseed oil and is used as a nutritional supplement. More information than you need to know? Maybe, but I thought it was interesting that a lowly plant seed could be used for both furniture finish AND the next best nutritional supplement since the multi-vitamin. Flaxseed oil is rich in Omega 3 fatty acids which are excellent in a whole host of ways - heart disease, inflammatory bowel disease, and arthritis to name a few. Omega 3 fatty acids are typically linked with fish oils but flaxseed oil provides a good alternative source of the Omega 3’s for the vegetarian that prefers plant based supplements. Lignan is a chemical compound produced in plants that is a powerful antioxidant. Flaxseed oil contains one of the highest concentration of lignan known. Why is that important? Studies have shown populations that ingest a high amount of lignans have a lower incidence of cancer. Lignans are antioxidant molecules with anti-cancer, anti-viral, and anti-bacterial attributes. These plant hormones are also believed to block the manufacturing of hormone-based tumors.

www.tampabaywellness.com

Here’s an interesting tidbit: As an antioxidant, the flaxseed oil’s lignans can help increase the body’s immune system, keeping harmful, disease-causing germs from deteriorating the cells. Lignans also increase the manufacturing of a substance attached to estrogen and transports it out of the body which also makes it helpful in relieving PMS symptoms. Other uses of flaxseed oil include helping to protect the body against inflammations, high blood pressure, lowering cholesterol and triglycerides and improves the absorption of calcium. As you can see, flaxseed oil is a nutritional supplement that should not be overlooked. Easy to take and less expensive than the considerable supplements touted today. www.antioxidantshealth.com

PROFILE - Richard’s Foodporium

By Danni Matter

A

s human beings, we all have a need and desire to be healthy – it’s just second nature. Most of us, additionally, have some idea of how to achieve that goal through the right diet and exercise. But of course, there are aspects of the hectic daily life many of us lead that can make some steps toward the realization of optimal health harder than others. Thankfully, there is one in particular I am able to present you with a solution to: grocery shopping. Deciding where to shop, researching different foods and their health benefits, searching for the lowest prices on items you need...buying groceries for yourself and your family can be a headache all on

12

its own. So why not make all of that a little bit easier? For the last 38 years, that is what Richard’s Foodporium has been doing for those in our community looking to live a healthier lifestyle, without sacrificing extra time or money. Richard’s is a unique retailer of affordable natural and specialty foods that first came to our area in 1979, establishing a community presence with their dedication to building meaningful relationships. Visiting the “Foodporium” is like walking into an antique general store – the wooden floors and shelving as well as the early 20th century-themed accents give it a fun and inviting atmosphere. Richard’s takes pride in the fact that all employees are fully trained to help store customers with anything they may be looking for, or any questions that may arise while you are browsing their large selection of natural and organic goods. These elements combined make for a pleasant shopping experience spent knowing there is always someone nearby who is happy to help. It’s like a learning experience all in itself, which can help decrease the time you may have spent trying to figure out specific benefits of or differences between products on your own! In addition to a large selection of packaged items, Richard’s also boasts an extensive bulk foods section, which is priced by JULY 2017

weight and allows customers to measure out how much of a loose product they need. So if you only need a cup of almonds for a recipe, there’s no need to buy a whole bag – just visit the bulk foods section! It can be a fantastic money-saver. And that’s only one other aspect of Richard’s large selection of products. Whether you’re looking for vitamins, personal care products, frozen foods, or gluten-free foods, you can find it all in one place. That means no multiple stops! In the case that you don’t find the exact product you’re looking for, Richard’s also offers a special order option where products can be shipped directly to the store for pickup. Currently, there are Richard’s Foodporium stores located in Flagler County, Pinellas County, and Manatee County, as well as the cities of Sarasota, Venice, Englewood, North Port, and Port Charlotte, and they’re not stopping there. The mission of the company, and of its founder, was to establish a Richard’s Foodporium in every neighborhood, so they could continue to help their neighbors transition to and maintain a healthy lifestyle. However as much as Richard’s continues to serve more and more communities, it is a locally-owned business, meaning that every dollar spent generates approximately twice as much income for the Tampa Bay Wellness


17 Locations local economy. Buying from local, independent businesses means that significantly more of your money is used to make purchases from other local businesses, service providers, and farms – strengthening the economic base of the community. So while helping yourself and your family by switching to a healthier lifestyle, when you shop at Richard’s you are also stimulating the economy of your neighborhood.

Store, People’s Choice and Business of the Year in multiple Florida communities and Best Independent Chain Retailer in the Nation.

Expand Your Life Force Energy

Carolyn is a Kundalini Yoga Teacher, Myofascial Release Therapist and Physical Therapist. www.BlissMyofascialRelease. com Carolyn@BlissMyofascialRelease.com

eyond your age, beyond other descriptors of health is the state of your chi or life force energy. What gives you energy to do the aspects of living? It is your chi or life force energy. It flows through your body as energy that drives the functions and the systems of the entire body. It is your life force energy that is generated within the physical energy body. When you learn and practice tapping into the energy system, you gain chi--to use for living, feeling higher states, feeling and looking more youthful. Life with a chi practice and with-

out a chi practice is different indeed. Until you learn and practice, you are not enhancing and optimizing on your energy system. You will experience clearing of energy imbalances and blockages, receive energy and expand energy. These are the gifts of any chi practice, whether it be Tai Chi, Qigong (Chi Gong), Kundalini Yoga, martial arts, Transcendental Meditation or any movement/ breathing/energy/meditative forms of practice. The chi or life force energy travels through the physical body via the central energy channels, meridians,

chakras, fascia and nadis. The energy components are intricately connected into all of the physical body systems— cardiovascular, respiratory, central nervous system, hormonal system, musculoskeletal system, etc. The energy system is connected into the respiratory system, but it goes much beyond that. There is always more to learn, experience and explore at any age or stage of life. You can experience greater chi or life force energy and feel better, have more energy to use for work and play. It’s a great day to begin or tune in to your chi practice.

THE CHI, OR ENERGY, OF FENG SHUI By Marcella Zinner

E

nergy (also known as Chi) is within us, all around us, and also part of living things as well as solid matter. This chi energy influences all aspects of our lives. Sometimes we can feel its effects, other times it is a very subtle sensing. These effects of chi energy can affect health, prosperity, mood, communication, work performance, concentration and interactions with others. This subtle energy all around

us is referred to as Feng shui from the ancient Chinese culture referring to the flow of all things. Feng Shi (pronounced fen shwey) is the energy placement of all things. Its fundamental concept is that in order to be healthy, happy, successful and prosperous, one must be in harmony with the earth, and all things, living and nonliving. This harmony is created by focusing on the gentle flow and balance. This balance

is described by the Chinese as yin (female) and yang (male) components. This balance and flow is influenced by contours of landscape, presence or absence of water, vegetation, weather conditions, sittings and shapes of buildings, and the placement of furnishings. Cultivating this Feng Shui energy requires keen observation and intuitive skills of energy, balance and harmony.

How to begin To begin to enhance the flow of chi and create balance and harmony in your environment is to focus on the placement of items and furniture in your home. Start by taking a look around your room. The top mistake people make in arranging their bedroom is not leaving equal room on both sides of the bed. This is one of the most vital elements in designing this room. Is your bed pushed up against the wall? Is there more room on one side than the other? Does the room feel a little off kilter when you step back and study it? This balance will be keep your energy centered and will also maintain equality in your relationship. If you have a choice, experts recommend the use of round tables instead of square ones. The points on the square of the tables may cut off the chi energy that will be directed toward you.

Even if it’s misaligned, a door should be visible at all times—this allows you to energetically and literally see and feel who and what opportunities are approaching. Additionally, a direct line of vision to the door is believed to start your day with a sense of control.

Avoid accumulating clutter

Too much clutter means that chi can’t circulate in your bedroom which can cause intimacy and health issues. Be sure that the area surrounding your bed is clean and free of debris. Extra books can be a particularly overwhelming source of clutter. Too many books lying around can disturb the peace in your bedroom by making the room look and feel like it’s a place of work. A few books are fine, but more Tampa Bay Wellness


than that should be placed in a different area of the house.

Take the television out of the bedroom

Televisions are considered an unhealthy addition to most bedrooms; they not only create unhealthy magnetic fields which disrupt sleep, they also keep you distracted and keep the bedroom from being a place of relaxation. This holds true for desks as well. If you can’t move either, experts suggest that you cover them with a scarf or sheet when they’re not in use.

Keep plants and flowers outside of your room Yang is the very active principle of the universe that’s characterized as male and is associated with heaven, heat, and light. Plants are thought to possess a lot of it—making them inappropriate for a bedroom.

Have a supportive wall behind your head At nighttime, your body needs good backing, protection, and support to

rest and repair from the day’s work and stress. Feng shui advises the use of headboards that are solid and made of wood. A good upholstered one is helpful because you get the best of both worlds: gentle and supportive

Avoid mirrors Feng shui experts caution that mirrors in a bedroom can cause disturbed sleep and may invite space for infidelity. Mirrors are also considered too energetic for such a restful space. However, mirrors in other areas of the home can be very beneficial to alter the flow of Chi. Other common helpful recommendations to overcome awkward and uncomfortable Chi flow are chimes, lighting, crystals, furniture arranged in a more circular setting, plants (except in the bedroom), eliminate excessive electronics, aromatherapy, free of clutter, clean and tidy. A few adjustments to your home can mean the shift and change in many areas of your life: relaxed, rested, happy, and even prosperous!!

The Life-Changing Power of

SMILING

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – Back in 2014, Michal Rhodas did not feel she had many reasons to smile. The 63-year-old realtor had been in two serious car accidents that resulted in multiple surgeries, her daughter had battled kidney cancer, and Rhodas herself was diagnosed with melanoma. Rhodas went for a cosmetic treatment to boost her confidence and feel better, and when the doctor ordered “Smile Therapy”, her life changed. “I started smiling every day, at everyone I see. It has a lot of power. I knew this when I was younger, and when life gets tough or we take things too seriously, it is easy to forget,” says Rhodas. “It seems so simple, people don’t believe this works. But when you actually put a smile on your face and try it, you realize the impact and kindness of such a small gesture.” Rhodas learned the smile technique from Rich Castellano, M.D., a Wall Street Journal best selling author who has dedicated his life to helping patients and business owners 18

achieve happiness, improved facial appearance, and better communication skills through smiling and non-verbal communication. Dr. Castellano has extensively researched the power of how a simple smile affects our body language. He wrote a bestselling book on the topic and is a frequent lecturer at large companies, schools, and community organizations. His dedication to smiling began at a young age with his own personal experience. “When I was seven years old, I spent over two years in a wheelchair and on crutches due to a hip condition,” says Dr. Castellano. “When I was 11, my mother was diagnosed with schizophrenia, and it was tough. I realized that if I spent time around others who are smiling or laughing, it would lift me up and help me feel happier. The research is extensive on the health benefits of this non-verbal communication, but most people really don’t use it. This simple technique, or “brain hack” as I like to call it, delivers immediate results. I have since dedicated my life to helping

JULY 2017

Tampa Bay Wellness


people improve their happiness, relationships, and success through smiling and non-verbal communication.” Dr. Castellano urges everyone to try what he calls the Smile Challenge. It’s easy to start: smile at people who you walk by or connect with. Try it right now by smiling at whomever is around you, or look in the mirror. The response is consistently positive, and research has shown how this simple practice is proven to lower stress, make our relationships last longer, and even help us live longer. It gets better: The bigger you smile at others, the better the response you receive. And, it is applicable in the vast majority of personal and professional circumstances. Everything worthwhile starts with a smile!” Rhodas says it has certainly worked for her and she smiles at everyone she sees during her daily three mile run on the beach. “When you look at a small child in a store and they smile at you, it sticks with you throughout the day,” she says. “The same is true for everyone that I smile at.” You never know what someone is going through, and sometimes a smile can help make their day,” she says. “I’ve made many friends this way as it starts a conversation. I challenge them to try smiling, and it always brightens their day.” We dare you to try the Smile Challenge yourself and see how it impacts your day. Dr. Rich has a warning for you, “We can not be held accountable for any behavior you engage in when you experience more happiness, joy, and fulfillment!”

GREEN LIVING

THE EMERGING SMART GRID

Benjamin T. Alexander

T

ake a minute to look at the diagram to the right. Note the bidirectional meter in the upper right part of the diagram. If you live in a standard home with an electric bill your electric meter only flows electricity into your home, from the electric company to you. When you install solar panels the local electric utility switches out your old meter for a bidirectional meter that measures the flow of electricity in and OUT of your home. At least in Florida there is no cost from the utility to install this meter, the new bidirectional meter replaces your old analog meter. The old analog electric meter on your home costs the electric company more money because it requires meter readers. The new bidirectional meters allow your electric company to measure your usage remotely without the labor costs of an employee. Most of the current electric grid is a “dumb grid”, this means that the electric company has no idea how much electricity is needed at any given time in any given area. This is why during the summer months the local utility has to generate This is what a bidirectional meter looks like in real life:

more power to keep your air conditioning running. This increase in power demand (on a 95 degree summer day) is the reason that we have rolling brownouts and blackouts. As residential solar becomes more commonplace, the electric company can use the data from bidirectional meters to allocate power in a more efficient way. For instance, a housing development that contains 30 or 40 homes with solar will be able to self-generate enough extra electricity to keep the AC running for other non-solar homes in the same subdivision. This is less strain on the grid during a high demand period. Residential solar connected to bidirectional meters will make the entire power grid smarter, more efficient, and more reliable. If a car accident or storm takes down local power lines the smart grid should be able to divert rooftop solar power to that area. Over time more local energy storage will be built into the smart grid, and daytime solar will be stored for auxiliary power at night. One place to store extra energy might even be electric cars, but this won’t happen until battery tech takes another leap forward. Ben Alexander https://balloondistractionsblog.com

GREEN LIVING

Green Your Home with Energy Efficient Lighting

E

nergy efficient lighting is an excellent way to save electricity, save money, and help the environment while satisfying your home decorating itch. People often overlook the importance of lighting their homes with fixtures that reduce the number of watts spent on keeping the indoors (and outdoors) bright. A good way to get away from the old, inefficient incandescent bulbs is to look into lighting your home or office with low voltage, LED lights, or fluorescent lights. There are drawbacks and benefits to all three of these types of light bulbs, but any of them are more efficient and longer lasting than traditional incandescent bulbs. According to The International Electrotechnical Commission, low voltage appliances function by using electricity in the range 50-1000 V AC or 120-1500 V DC. Energy Star light fixtures often use low voltage and are characterized by carrying a reasonably substantial risk of electric shock (so professional installation is encouraged), but only a minor amount of electricity actually arcs through the air. Low voltage lights (especially outdoor low voltage lighting systems) are often time consuming to install but last significantly longer than traditional incandescent bulbs so they are a good choice for outdoor lighting in a commercial setting. Fluorescent lighting fixtures are also great energy savers when it comes to home lighting. A fluorescent light is a gas-discharge lamp that uses electricity to excite mercury vapor. The mercury atoms create short-wave ultraviolet light rays that then cause a phosphor to “fluoresce”, producing visible light. A fluorescent lamp changes electrical www.tampabaywellness.com

power into useful light more efficiently than an incandescent lamp through this method. The lower energy cost of fluorescent light fixtures typically offsets the higher initial cost of the lamp itself. The fluorescent light fixture is more expensive because it is necessary to install a ballast to regulate the current through the light, but the life of a fluorescent bulb is typically much longer than a traditional bulb with a life span that is 10 to 20 times longer than a regular incandescent fixture. The compact fluorescent light bulb is also less likely to create a glare and covers a larger area with light without concentrating too much of it on one point. In this way you can light an entire room with only one or two fixtures (saving you energy through the number of light fixtures as well as the amount of electricity used to light them). LED Lighting is another great option for going green in your home decor. There are a lot of reasons why lighting designers are turning towards LED technology when considering designing their next lighting masterpiece. Some of the most obvious advantages to LED lights over CFLs (short for “compact fluorescent lights”) is that they don’t contain mercury so there’s no need to dispose of them in special fluorescent JULY 2017

bulb recycling programs. Mercury can find its way into streams and rivers, and therefore fish and drinking water. Exposures to mercury can affect the human nervous system and harm the brain, heart, kidneys, lungs, and immune system. The most common way we are exposed to mercury is by eating fish or shellfish that are contaminated with mercury, but this can be prevented by careful disposal of fluorescent light bulbs through official recycling programs developed by the EPA. With LED (short for “light emitting diode”) lights, there is no risk of mercury contamination and little to no risk of electric shock and they use such little wattage that you will see a definite change for the better in your electric bill. LED lights are everywhere now, and for a good reason. They help the environment, save electricity, last longer than incandescent AND fluorescent lights, and are much more easily programmed to do a variety of tasks. In fact, energy-saving LED lighting is up to 70% more efficient and often comes with 10 to 15 year warranties from the manufacturer. In conclusion, there are many ways to “go green” that are simple, affordable, and easy to install. It’s amazing how you can save so much energy over time by simply investing in smarter light fixtures to brighten up your home, office, store, or outdoor landscape. California has even begun phasing out incandescent bulbs by banning them from being manufactured as of January 1st, 2011. So if you’re ready to jump onto the green revolution bandwagon, a great place to start is in the lighting department. 21


THEME - Cultivating Chi

BALANCE & HARMONY

C

hi is energy which is ultimately, Spirit. Spirit is the ineffable state from which we originate. Chi is real and is the Universal Life source, which while it can be characterized by many names, is the finest etheric energy – the highest frequency known as the Godhead. It is also known as qi, chi, prana, orgone, Universal Life Force, and by other terms. Chi is easily accessible through energy work and creates harmony and balance. This can be done through various means such as meditation, yoga, qigong (qi = energy; gong = practice) , tai chi, reiki, acupuncture/acupressure, martial arts and other practices. Energy work develops the physical body, the mental and emotional as well as one’s spirituality. Why is energy work important? Being at one with Source energy provides multi-layered healing and growth. This leads to balance and harmony, which can lead to peace of mind, joy and happiness. It leads us on a spiritual journey and

22

to ever increasing awarenesses and internal understanding. This is known, ultimately, as enlightenment. To illustrate this point, that enlightenment can result from energy work, various disciplines such as yoga and qigong have those known as masters who exhibit abilities and wisdom that seem far greater than those of average people. This is the result of the alignment with All That Is and illustrates the potential we all have. Many masters “know“ things psychically because of their heightened sense of awareness. Some have been known to live over one hundred years (one was 119 when he passed), fully functioning, healthy and sentient. They seem to know and be aware of when they are going to pass, and often seem to choose when to do so. With balance and harmony comes calmness, peace, joy and happiness. Also important, because of one’s developing sharper awareness, is the ability to understand life. Life has many highs and lows, and with understanding, JULY 2017

one can see the broad context as well as understand the immediate. With understanding comes forgiveness and appreciation for life’s lessons. Forgiveness fosters release of inharmonious thoughts and emotions, resulting in calmness. We learn to detach and know all is, and will be, well. With this Zen-like state, we are able to maintain a joyful state. This leads to internal peace and knowing we can open our hearts to emit and receive more Universal love. How do we access and align with Spirit and the chi flow? There are methods that access chi flow that are singularly static, and some others which are both static and dynamic. Most disciplines include both, and include practices such as breathing and meditation (static), and dynamic movements such as postures, forms, and asanas. The best thing is that anyone, at any time, regardless of condition, can access Spirit. It is best to prepare by opening one’s heart and calming the mind through meditation or contemplaTampa Bay Wellness

tion and then perform one’s mental or physical exercises. According to tai chi, “softness overcomes hardness”, meaning calmness and peace overcomes that which is inharmonious. Specific exercises include the following from yoga and qigong. Consensus indicates the two most essential and effective exercises in qigong include “Lifting the Sky” and “Plucking Stars”. These stimulate the most meridians and promote energy flow through raising and stretching arms overhead, bending one’s back, combined with breathing and positive thoughts. Meridians are the energy channels permeating our bodies like rivers and are similar to our nerve and blood systems. Once a person stimulates one meridian, the energy goes all through the body since all meridians are connected. Similar movements can be seen in yoga’s ancient exercise “Sun Salutation”. The “5 Tibetan rites”, another ancient yoga-like set of exercises, can be strenuous, are very powerful and will often promote a powerful rush of chi energy. It is the stimulation of one’s energy www.tampabaywellness.com

channels that stimulate energy flow through one’s organs. In fact, there is on YouTube (as are all of the exercises mentioned in this article), a set of qigong exercises, the “Daoist 5 Yin”, which specifically stimulate the meridians of five specific organs. Tai chi, a martial art, also, through its slow movement , stimulates many meridians. Many internal martial arts do the same – having emphasis on correct breathing, dynamic and static exercises. Static exercises include standing exercises such as “The Horse” and “Standing Like a Tree”. The feeling of the chi flow, qigong or yoga can be described as a warm, relaxed, “good” feeling and is physically relaxing. Where does one find information about all of these? It is suggested that books, DVDs, You Tube and then a teacher with real lineage or qualifications that indicate authentic knowledge. One can research the websites and decide about a teacher. The key is real commitment. This means a real desire and then consistent JULY 2017

action. It is an internal journey and is ultimately rewarding. If one gives a valid effort, the results, will, over time, be what one desires. Never underestimate the power of chi. You are rebuilding and lifting your energies which will result in positive changes and harmony, balance, happiness and joy!

Even slow movement is better than none. Time to live your life a bit more balanced as you seek to both let go of many things that inwardly weigh you down and to also open up to the world beyond what you can currently see. Focus on being persistent as you move forward in self-determination. And stop looking back.

o understand how many of the holistic methods of healing are able to encourage an individual to heal themselves or regain a state of well being you first must understand that we (and our pets) are more than physical bodies inhabiting space. There is also an emotional/mental aspect, an energy body and a spiritual body. It is through our 5 senses of taste, hearing, smell, sight and touch that we know we are here physically. But, it is our life force energy that gives our body movement, our emotional/mental self that gives us desire and our spiritual self that gives us purpose and meaning. We are born with a certain blueprint encoded on our genetic DNA, but we are also born with illness patterns that are the basis for each new generation’s core health. To this core is added each new insult to our vital health, whether it be exposure to bacteria or viruses (naturally or by vaccine injection); excess heat, cold, wind, damp or dryness; injury or surgery; or toxins in our food, water or environment. In other words, the multitude of things that can happen to us all! Each of these insults adds another layer to our core. When we are young we have more energy, more vitality. When we have this strength we are able to handle a lot of insults and rebound from them without permanent impact on our health. As we age, we are not able to do this as effi-

ciently and our bodies start to break down. The area of our body that has a problem is that area that inherently is our “weak spot” or has sustained a great deal of insult or injury. When we are not able to heal ourselves we get stuck in illness symptoms. These symptoms are our body’s attempts at healing. These symptoms are usually regarded as unpleasant and the conventional medicine way of dealing with them is to suppress them and get rid of them as soon as possible. Unfortunately, this suppresses our vital force from ridding our body of the current insult, so the problem is driven to a deeper level. The body is marvelous in resurfacing this buried illness and will do its best to bring it out and get rid of it. If our surface symptoms are suppressed strongly enough or often enough, the disease will then manifest on a deeper level. We may think they are gone, but they have really only moved to a new location! Traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture work by helping restore a healthy balance to the energy pathways of the body. This helps the body to work in as efficient a way as possible. Acupuncture therapy can be done with finger pressure, with small beads or tacks, solid needles, injection of liquids (aquapuncture), electrical impulses (electroacupuncture), or by insertion of gold or silver-plated beads or wires into acupuncture points. I have found neural therapy aquapuncture (B-12, lidocaine and saline injections) to be the most successful treatment for my patients with arthritis (as happens with hip dysplasia or spinal spondylosis). Homeopathy helps individuals heal themselves by influencing the energy body’s interface with the physical body. Through the patient’s symptoms, responses to the insults that life has thrown out, basic personality traits and clinical history the homeopathic physician is able to formalize a “picture” of that patient. This homeopathic “portrait” is then correlated with the most appropriate remedy for that individual at that point in time. This allows the body to heal itself by exteriorizing and resolving illness. Single homeopathic remedies are all that is needed in acute problems but for those individuals with chronic disease it takes well chosen remedies given at the correct strength and time intervals to bring one to a state of good health and well-being.

So what’s the Deal with Organic Dog Food?

A

s you know, dog food is available in a wide variety of colours, sizes, flavors, and shapes. The real distinction is obviously the ingredients contained in the products. You may be surprised to know that the ingredient list on dog food labels reads very much like human junk food. Some ingredients are even difficult to pronounce and are borrowed from medical encyclopedias. Then of course there are dog foods that are teeming with artificial ingredients, additives and preservatives that can be harmful to pets. So just what is “Spot” to do when it comes to healthy eating? Many pet owners are discovering organic dog foods to feed their pets. Just as we humans are conscious of what we put into our bodies, these pet owners take that same consciousness and use it to make wiser decisions about not including chemicals in their dogs’ diets. Organic dog treats are the next best thing to all natural dog food, as they are free of the pesticides and insecticides that are present in many foods. Be aware of food labels however, as they can be very confusing. Natural dog food is not the same as “organic”dog food and this can be quite misleading for many. The fact is, “natural” foods are not held to the same higher standard as “organic” foods. The USDA must certify a food as organic, in order for the food to be labelled as such. Even though organic food servings are pricier and contain about half the amount of food in volume compared to non-organic food, dogs are reportedly more satisfied with the lesser amount due to the purity of the healthier ingredients contained. This makes the organic and non-organic dog foods very comparable in price. The bottom line is that choosing to feed your dog organic food instead of the preservative and chemically rich non-organic food can definitely go a long way in helping your dog live a more healthy and trouble free life free of allergies, skin ailments, diabetes and cancer. An added benefit may be the lower veterinary bills brought on by your healthier dog.

SPIRITUALITY

Know Yourself as Eternal, Non-changing and Absolute

A

s we walk through life we see the constant change around us as everything follows its natural life cycle. Our body is no exception; it is constantly changing growing and evolving. Yet the person within the body, that silent witness to all we experience, has an eternal quality of something much greater and more permanent that who or what we think we are. In our quite moments when we are walking or sitting with nature, our feelings reach out and connect and touch a deeper layer of our heart and soul. We become in union with that hidden force that orders the whole of creation. We can be one with this field of love, this presence of the divine, which is within us and surrounding us in each moment of our lives. All we need to do is just be present and our awareness will naturally settle and become one with its divine nature. We leave behind our physical nature and connect with that presence of love that underlies the physical. We connect with our true Self the silent witness to our life and experiences. That which was never born can never die. Our true self is the eternal continuum of life itself. What happens in our life is here just for a few moments; we are connected to the whole of life. We can choose any experience we wish to have in each moment, just by choosing that experience with the next breath we take. You have come to earth for a divine purpose, to have an experience and to create your dreams with your imagination. Next time you are out in nature take the time to reflect on what your dream is? What you have chosen to create in this lifetime. Ask yourself what your true nature is? Like any plant in the garden we are all unique. We have come into this world with a specific DNA a blue print for life. A rose can only grow into a rose, a daisy a daisy. What is your nature? We surround ourselves with a loving nurturing atmosphere. We are here to grow and develop jus t like the plants in the garden. We have been allocated a life cycle, just like the plants. This is not a dress rehearsal it is life itself. What is your dream? What is your passion? What difference do you want to create and express in this lifetime? We are all different we all have a different nature and a different dream to live. We are not here to copy anyone, we are here to express

our nature and live our dream and be the finest example of who and what we wish to create in this lifetime. So next time you are feeling connected to your soul and at peace with the whole Universe. Allow your higher Self to guide you, on your path to your true destiny. Dream your dream, and live your life expressing your joy and blossoming into your full nature.

NUMEROLOGY

Mystical 7 : Victory & Creation

T

he month of July is the seventh month of the year. Seven is one of the most spiritually significant numbers in not only Numerology, but also in religious and mystical literature. In the tarot, the Major Arcana 7 card is the Chariot – the one who is spiritually adept, directs life through the power of mind, and is associated with the astrological sign of Gemini. In the Kabalah’s Tree of Life, it represents creative imagination. Its meaning is creation, victory and a new spiritual covenant as well as the start of a new spiritual cycle. It is the number of spiritual attainment, and an emergence from Chaos into self-mastery regarding divine Truth. It is the creation resulting from the previous number 6 as in when God rested on the 7th day of Creation. Those born on the 7th, 16th or 25th of the month will have life purpose embodying this energy. A person born on Nov 7, 2005 (Nov = 11, day 7 = 7, 2005 = 2+0+0+5 = 7) would have 11 + 7 + 7 = 25 = 2+5 =7: a 7 Life Path. The Life Path represents the main lessons to be learned in this incarnation. The seven energy is characterized in Numerology as the spiritual seeker, analyst, researcher and deep thinker, mystic, one who seeks the deepest truth of life and creation. The 7’s life lesson is to realize it is part of that which is greater than oneself. Because of their passion towards focus, concentration and deep thinking, their minds are often less cluttered and distracted, thereby allowing access to the higher realms. This enables answers to come to them, and enables practical application as in stock brokerage or computer engineering where both logical and abstract thinking are applied. The Sun number, using the birth day and month (not year – as in the case of the Life Path) is a big picture of who you are, similar to a “persona”, that is, external facade. A Sun number would be as in March 4 (March = 3, day =4) thus 3+4 = 7 Sun number. It also shows how you handle change and also the relationships you may be attracted to. Unlike the Life Path which is the path a person intends to follow; this number is less accurate in sizing up deeper layers of personality. It does give a good clue to the way a person thinks or acts publicly. The quiet and often introverted 7 Sun Number tends towards careers in which there is deep thinking required such as psychology, psychiatry, and mathematics. However, just because they drift towards intellectual jobs, they are one of the most curious and intuitive minds of all the Sun Numbers. These are the religious and spiritual leaders, writers, scientists, analysts, computer engineers and those with www.tampabaywellness.com

intuitive abilities. Paradoxically, the 7 often is emotional and this sometimes steers them from concentrating on logical and rational solutions. This may be because of their intuitive abilitiesthey feel, hear, and see things that many others do not. Thus they “get” insights that may be deeply hidden. Numerology is about potentials and as in any situation, it is dynamic intention which has the most influence in life and relationships. The constant in life is change, and as one evolves, the levels of personal understanding and maturity change. The potential successful romantic relationships of the 7 Sun could be as follows: those with Sun numbers 1,3,5,7, and 9. 1 is a dynamic and powerful energy at its maximum, a leader and pioneer. The 1 in love, will be fiercely protective of the intellectual 7. 3 is a creative genius and once committed in love, stays deeply in a relationship. 7 will stay in a long term relationship because a 7 wants to please their lover. 5 is the king/queen of change and loves being unfettered. The 7 values its time alone to think. Once 5 lands from its flights of fancy and fun, and they finally commit, they will stay together for a while. 7 Two thinkers/psychics together can either be super glue or explode because of their sensitivities and awarenesses. Could be heaven or hell, but ultimately rewarding. 9 Both are oriented towards humanitarianism with the 9 being very down to earth, practical and no-nonsense. 7 thinks outside the box both logically as well as intuitively- a wonderful symmetry could evolve and it could be stellar if they pull together. The above mentioned potential successful relationships do not exclude other numbers but rather the potentiality for these to succeed if their energies are applied in the most positive manner. With the information above, one can determine the “best” possible situation and a happier ride through life! Enjoy life….it’s reason we are here!
