Tobacco Forced to Run Ads WASHINGTON — Decades after they were banned from the airwaves, Big Tobacco companies return to prime-time television this weekend — but not by choice. Under court order, the tobacco industry for the first time will be forced to advertise the deadly, addictive effects of smoking, more than 11 years after a judge ruled that the companies had misled the public about the dangers of cigarettes. But years of legal pushback by the industry over every detail means the ads will be less hard-hitting than what was proposed. Tobacco control experts say the campaign — built around network TV and newspapers — will not reach people when they are young and most likely to start smoking. “Their legal strategy is always obstruct, delay, create confusion and buy more time,” said Ruth Malone, of the University of California, San Francisco, who has studied the industry for 20 years. “So by the time this was finally settled, newspa-

pers have a much smaller readership, and nowadays, who watches network TV?” The new spots, which begin Sunday, lay out the toll of smoking in blunt text and voiceover statements: “More people die every year from smoking than from murder, AIDS, suicide, drugs, car crashes and alcohol, combined.” Smoking remains the nation’s leading preventable cause of death and illness, causing more than 480,000 deaths each year, even though smoking rates have been declining for decades. Last year, the adult smoking rate hit a new low of 15 percent, according to government figures. That’s down from the 42 percent of adults who smoked in the mid-1960s. Experts attribute the decline to smoking bans, cigarette taxes and anti-smoking campaigns by both nonprofit groups like the American Cancer Society and the federal government. The new ads are the result of a 1999 lawsuit filed by the Justice Department under President Bill Clinton which sought to recover some of the billions the federal government spent caring for people with smoking-related illnesses. A federal judge ultimately sided with the government in 2006, ruling that Big Tobacco had “lied, misrepresented and deceived the American public” about the effects of smoking for more than 50 years. The decision came nearly a decade after U.S. states reached legal settlements with the industry worth $246 billion. But under the racketeering laws used to prosecute the federal case, the judge said she could not make the companies pay, instead ordering them to publish “corrective statements” in advertisements, as well as on their websites, cigarette packs and store displays. The campaign will be paid for by Altria Group, owner of Philip Morris USA, and DECEMBER 2017

Paying it Forward

One day I stopped to see him and had a few things in a bag to give him, one of which was a box of cereal bars so he could have something that he could carry around and eat. He was very appreciative as usual and the first thing he said was “do you want one?” Another time I dropped off 2 wawa gift cards and a case of water.. the first words that came out of his mouth were “I can’t wait to show the guys” (there are 2 others he hangs out with and they all take care of each other). If just those 2 statements alone do not give you a glimpse of the good heart this man has I’m not sure anything will. I am raising money for Johnny. With the money, I would like to get him first and last month’s rent at an apartment, a reliable vehicle, and 4-6 months worth of expenses. He is very interested in finding a job, and I believe that with a place to be able to clean up every night and get a good night’s rest, his life can get back to being normal. Truly believe that all Johnny needs is one little break. Hopefully with your help I can be the one to give it to him. Please help this man get into a home. It is already getting so cold out in Philadelphia, and I can’t imagine what it will be like to be out there all winter. Any little bit will help.

This GoFundMe fundraiser was set up by Kate. As of 11/28/17 it has raised $383,914 in 17 days for Johnny. There are talks about setting up a homeless shelter.

Pay it Forward!

Kate McClure and Homeless Marine Corp Veteran Johnny Off of GoFundMe Driving into Philly one night, I made the mistake of thinking that I would be able to make it all the way down I- 95 with my gas light on. Needless to say, I was wrong. I never ran out of gas before, and my heart was beating out of my chest. I pulled over as far as I could, and got out of the car to head to the nearest gas station. That’s when I met Johnny. Johnny sits on the side of the road every day, holding a sign. He saw me pull over and knew something was wrong. He told me to get back in the car and lock the doors. A few minutes later, he comes back with a red gas can. Using his last 20 dollars to make sure I could get home safe. Johnny did not ask me for a dollar, and I couldn’t repay him at that moment because I didn’t have any cash, but I have been stopping by his spot for the past few weeks. I repaid him for the gas, gave him a jacket, gloves, a hat, and warm socks, and I give him a few dollars every time I see him. I wish that I could do more for this selfless man, who went out of his way just to help me that day. He is such a great guy, and talking to him each time I see him makes me want to help him more and more. 10

FEATURE - Transitions

Transitioning to Natural Medicine By Dr. Chris Jackson, PhD, DOM

With the broader view afforded by an integrative model, a path to wellness is traversed by individuals who are in transition as the underlying physiological and psychological or emotional causes of health issues are addressed.

T

ransitions In my recent articles entitled “Our Society’s Distorted Perception: Normal Physical Function” and “Mindfulness through Meditation” I explored the roots of psychological and behavioral disorders found in physical dysfunction. Relationships among biochemical neurotransmitters, the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis (HPA), the stress response (fight or flight), the sympathetic nervous system, and the parasympathetic relaxation response were explored. In the most recent article the topic was Mind, Body, and Intuition which explored the brain-gut-microbiome (BGM) axis. The topics discussed in these and many 12

of my other articles reflect knowledge being derived as a huge transition is occurring in medicine and the human experience as we know it. The mind-body connection is under exploration as various fields of medical science are transitioning toward a more integrative model. To the benefit of patients and the various fields of medicine, the transition we are experiencing is a move toward integration of conventional (allopathic) medicine with natural medical disciplines, including functional, orthomolecular, homeopathic, naturopathic, and traditional Eastern medical practices. In the practice of this new paradigm I have seen many in their own personal transiDECEMBER 2017

tions, both away from and toward wellness. People who have come to my practice having been told they were needing dialysis, insulin, statins, pain killers, operations, anti-depressive and anti-anxiety drugs were often on a path from rather than to wellness. Many of these patients have been able to make a transition to a better state of wellness using natural approaches directed toward the underlying causes of their disorders. In fact, at times I have been so focused on the health of my patients that I have gotten off my own path to wellness and have gone through my own transitions to reacquire my own wellness path. Still, there is much to learn and much Tampa Bay Wellness


growing to do. The more open atmosphere that is beginning to emerge gives us a possibility that we may receive great gifts during this transitional period. Assisted by the biopsychosocial model of health psychology, a deeper understanding of mind-body-spirit emerges as we explore the psychological, neurological, endocrine (hormonal), and immunological functions of our bodies and their interrelations with the energetic world we share. The breadth of understanding that continuously grows as we explore new realms helps us to target more fundamental determinants of health. Health in this larger paradigm is not simply a lack of illness, but a true state of wellness on many levels. As we transition toward a state of overall wellness we may encounter transitions within this realignment that take us to deeper levels of understanding of ourselves and others, bringing clarity, and greater awareness or consciousness. With the broader view afforded by an integrative model, a path to wellness is traversed by individuals who are in transition as the underlying physiological and psychological or emotional causes of health issues are addressed. The symptoms abate not through targeted symptomatic medicine, but through a transition that occurs as a natural consequence of truly addressing the underlying causes of disorders, rather than just the symptoms.

Why Falling in Love Can You MUST love as if there is no such thing as a broken heart

L

onging and wanting aren’t easy to feel, but they come with the territory. In Western culture, falling in love is considered “The Happy Thing”—two people find each other and the story ends, the curtain drops and the credits roll. The problems of loneliness, desire and attachment have been solved. This is a deeply satisfying narrative, but as many of us experience in our actual lives, it is often less straightforward. To fall in love requires us to recognize powerful feelings of longing, which can render us emotionally exposed and scared; longing and wanting. The word “longing” conveys the feeling of intense desire for the other’s presence, attention and body—every bit of them. The venerable and subversive Maurice Sendak precisely articulated this lusty combination of enthusiastic, driven wanting: “I’ll eat you up, I love you so!” When we meet someone to whom we respond intensely—and to whom we are

14

drawn physically, emotionally, intellectually, or (jackpot!) all three—our protective shell is punctured. “Cupid’s arrow” represents love’s abrupt, unanticipated, somewhat painful penetration of one’s self, a self carefully prepared “to meet the faces that you meet,” as T. S. Eliot described: our veneered presentations crafted to facilitate smooth interpersonal engagement and minimize vulnerability to others. Longing and wanting erode our psychic skin by submitting us to uncertain outcomes, and possibly agonizing pain. For example, our loving, longing, and wanting may not be reciprocated. Impediments might present themselves, such as distance, religion, and marital status, as well as more internal complications within a couple, like ambivalence, insecurity, and worries about intimacy. There are no guarantees romantic love will “work out.”

DECEMBER 2017

What’s At Stake. Heartbreak is a formidable threat. It is not uncommon for people to go to great lengths to avoid the torment of a broken heart. For example, some avoid engaging too deeply with any romantic partners, or remain in deadened relationships. Others consider romantic love to be silly, irrational, fleeting, a waste of energy or only for the young. This is understandable; heartbreak can be utterly devastating. Still, we are wired for love and it’s not easy to escape, as it appears ubiquitously in movies, songs, books, theater (and online posts). Despite our self-protective measures, though, we still often end up desperately longing for that irresistible someone. It is absolutely terrifying, but also exhilarating, vivid, full of Joy, and from my perspective, the point of it all.

Tampa Bay Wellness


Be So Scary, and Yet Joyful. Love Isn’t Always Easy to Feel. A female patient in her thirties with whom I have worked for some years recently acknowledged that she is dating a man with whom she is in love. Her declaration, however, was muted, pained and not without regret, given that she has had some catastrophically painful previous relationships. I met it similarly. Yet, along with this anguish was consciously acknowledged with extreme joy and pleasure. We could withstand the inevitable uncertainty and potential for suffering alongside the recognition that something extraordinary and singular had arrived in her life, and for that, we both felt joy. A male patient debating a split from his current boyfriend after having met a man by whom he was “thunderstruck” (this being the most accurate metaphor for the irrefutable force with which his feelings of wanting saturated his being) found himself sobbing uncontrollably as the new relationship unfolded. He confided to me that he had never wanted another person so fiercely. He worried this man would not want him, it would end badly and his

life was unraveling. The unruly potency of the feelings left him breathless, confused and overcome. We spoke at length about the ways in which his earlier history had not permitted such expansive expression. It was frightening, but he also felt more awake and more open to possibility than ever before. His suffering was not an indication that anything was psychologically amiss: he was in love and was scared.

Reason Is Not The Solution. None of us wants to lose our (imagined) authority over our emotions. Falling in love reminds us that “reason”—the misguided foundation of self-help book advice aimed at restraining romantic love—is largely irrelevant to many aspects of our emotional lives. Falling in love is scary, and must be reckoned with, not rejected, denied, or paraphrased into tidy lists in which we find relief from uncertainty. Fear, risk and pain are part of the territory—as are joy, wonder and transcendence. We must feel our way into the joy of love, the best we can, understanding that being scared is part of being alive. The fullest range of emotion offers the

fullest life. I remember when I realized that I was in love... My heart beat rapidly but my breathing was slow... It seemed like everything around me went from black and white to bursting with color... When she hugged me it felt like I just wanted to freeze time. To stay in the warmth of her hug and never let go. I was no longer stressed and instead felt like a large weight had been lifted off my chest. It felt like we were the only two people in the world. It’s a feeling that you’ll never forget...

Open Your Heart to Love, Joy & Creativity! By Arielle Giordano

reative power has the ability for new depths & insights to appear and for old problems to find new solutions. Creative expression has the potential to bring the darkness to light, the unconscious to consciousness and the unknown into sight. The creative process allows an awareness of knowing and a deeper beingness to move. All you have to do is get out of your own way, allow your natural ebb, and rhythm flow, and let creativity soar! Expressing yourself creatively can bring renewal and regeneration through dance, movement, music, visual arts, clay, baking, acting, and writing, cooking, building, inventing, gar-

dening and living. Sing your song, dance your dance, paint your paintings and bake your pies!! Creativity can transform pain, and assist in the healing of traumatic events. Creativity gives you a renewed strength and offers a unique way to give voice to difficult life experiences. The creative process opens the way for unconscious messages, and a new seeing of conscious awareness to take shape and have form. Being creative is our natural impulse as human beings. Throughout history, art tells the human story in cave paintings from the beginning of time. Creative expression and art can guide you to release stress during the holiday season. Art and

Being focused on creating, your attention shifts away from personal issues, worries and concerns. When your attention has shifted, your nervous system can begin to regulate from holiday stress. When this happens you have more access to the rest of your brain, emotions, thoughts, feelings, and a calm way of being.

THEME - Joy & Love

Remember the Little Things By Terri Cabral

J

oy is a feeling of Happiness, it comes from within. Love and joy are the highest frequency emotions that we can experience. Love and joy are fruits of the Spirit. We experience mostly what we put out, however some people are open to giving these strong and beautiful emotions but are closed off to receiving. Others are simply blocked from giving or receiving, due to previous relationships that have left them empty or fearful. Fear, anxiety and past relationships get in the way of trusting to open our heart and it is easier to put up a wall of protection to create the safety that we feel is needed. These lower energies may become our stories and we may be so stuck in the past that we create fear to truly live our present lives. Perhaps the lesson is to trust, learn the lesson and open up to new opportunities in life, understanding that there is a better plan for our lives and that true protection comes from the Creator. When we give unconditional love we open our hearts to a new frequency and joy and gratitude flows through our veins and cells. The more we feel love and joy the better we feel and the healthier we get, our cells thrive with positive emotions and high frequency equals happy cells. Dis-ease cannot live in happy cells, viruses, bacteria, cancer, etc. it’s all attached to emotion and trauma. When we are out of balance, fear takes over. We do so much to take care of others that we often forget to take care of ourselves. We live in a society 18

that taught us some things backwards and as adults our bodies pay for the belief systems that control our lives. It is not selfish to put ourselves first, our body is the Temple and our mind gives the command, if we don’t rest this temple and listen, pamper and treasure it,it will crumble and when it does, we can’t help ourselves or anyone else. Therefore our own Joy, Love, Happiness and Gratitude also an extremely high vibration must be at the forefront of our daily lives so that we can exude on the outside what we truly feel on the inside and be a mirror to the world. The more Love and Joy that we experience within, the more that we spread to create universal harmony, which is exactly what the world needs at this time. Holidays for some people are a time of stress, sadness and feeling overwhelmed with too much responsibility. If you tend to feel this way take a different approach this year, slow down and breathe deeply, pay attention to what is coming up and ask yourself, what is this that I am feeling? Why? Who’s involved? Have I forgiven this person or situation? What is my lesson in this? Forgive, breathe deeply and let it go. Releasing old wounds will bring on more joy. You can also write a letter to that person and burn it as will give you closure. Most often the stress is coming from long lists of to do, the question is do we really have to do all of this? I have realized over the years that I no longer need to make myself crazy through the holidays or any other time, the DECEMBER 2017

lists are shorter and are more meaningful. I pay attention to what’s most important, spending time with good friends, enjoying a good meal with family, watching a good Christmas movie with my husband and my favorite, having a cup of tea watching the Christmas tree lights and reflecting on all that I am grateful for. Remember the little things that make you happy and do more of that so that your life becomes more balanced, eventually the joy will outweigh everything else. The Holidays can be full of wonder, joy, love and peace if you choose to be in that space. Remember it’s not about the gifts, it is about the experience of showing love and gratitude for one another. This is the Joy and Love that will live within us forever. May you find all that you need, within you, this Holiday Season. Peace to All.

Tesla completes the world’s largest battery for Australian wind farm

Tesla has managed to deliver something on time, even if it’s falling behind its projections for the Model 3 electric car: It has completed production of a massive battery farm in South Australia, which is designed to capture and store energy produced by a wind farm and distribute it to the grid when it’s needed most, in an effort to curb frequent summer blackouts. The Tesla battery facility can provide power to around 30,000 homes for over an hour when at full capacity, and it will be coming online within the next few days, with final testing underway to make sure the completed facility is ready to roll. The battery farm has a total capacity of 100 megawatts, which makes it the largest overall in the world. The Wall Street Journal reports that while it’ll be offering backup power during its final testing phase over the next few weeks, it’s going to face its first significant stress tests beginning when Australian summer hits, between December and March. That’s when temperatures soar, and the energy system is taxed as residents crank up the AC and otherwise try to compensate for the blistering heat. Tesla’s test with this facility isn’t just about dealing with the Australian summer, however – it’ll be a key proof point in helping prove out the long-term viability of renewable energy sources as a realistic total replacement for traditional, less environmentally friendly means of supplying the grid. https://techcrunch.com/2017/11/23/tesla-completes-the-worlds-largest-battery-for-australian-wind-farm/ www.tampabaywellness.com

HOLISTIC PETS Kan Herb Company:

The Advantages of Chinese Herbal Medicine for Animals

O

n the cutting edge, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is emerging as an important tool for veterinarians. Chinese herbal therapy is tailored to the individual animal, able to enhance their recuperative power, immunity and state of well-being. Herbs can supplement the animal’s diet and fortify its constitution. Chemically complex, Chinese herbs have nutritional as well as balancing properties. While pharmaceutical drugs can be taxing to the animal’s kidney and liver, Chinese herbs may actually strengthen these organs as part of the therapeutic process. Safe, effective and gently nurturing, Chinese herbs are easily assimilated and have fewer side effects than pharmaceutical drugs. Rooted in over 23 centuries of Chinese herbal knowledge, Kan Herb’s formulas can protect and preserve the animal’s health day to day, every day.

Traditional Chinese Formulas Combine Benefits

specific energetic actions: Tonifying or supplementing formulas are used for conditions of weakness or deficiency. Deficiency patterns may be seen in any of the organ systems, especially the Spleen, Lung or Kidney, with symptoms such as fatigue, poor digestion, low immunity and incontinence. Harmonizing formulas restore balance and equanimity within organ systems, such as Spleen and Stomach, restoring digestive balances, or between organ systems such as Liver and Spleen. Clearing and purging formulas eradicate pathogens, or dispel excess stagnation of a bodily substance. These formulas are for very specific patterns and conditions, such as Wind Heat invasion, Heat and Toxins, Blood stasis, excess Dampness, or Heat. Kan Herb Company provides you with over 200 different, highly efficacious Chinese herbal formulas, manufactured in the United States and available in either tablets or extracts. Our formulas reflect both Traditional Chinese Medicine pattern diagnosis and Five Element theory. They range from traditional Chinese classic and patent formulas, to creative adaptations of ancient Chinese herbal remedies.

Chinese herbs are usually combined in formulas to enhance the herbs’ individual properties and actions. Tonic formulas restore eroded body resources and augment health and immunity; regulating formulas decongest the Qi, Moisture and Blood, relieving discomfort; purging formulas eliminate pathogenic influences. Symptoms and signs reflecting the particular conditions of each animal are matched with formulas providing the needed therapeutic effects. Our formulas fall into three general categories and have

Joy and Love for the Holidays and Everyday By Carolyn Puckett

Carolyn Puckett is an Expert Myofascial Release Therapist, Spiritual Response Therapy Practitioner and Kundalini Yoga Teacher. www.BlissMyofascialRelease.com, Carolyn@BlissMyofascialRelease.com. www.tampabaywellness.com

an you experience more Joy and Love in your daily living? Not just moments, but ongoing; not just holidays, but each and every day. Love is a high vibrational frequency field or consciousness state and so is joy. Everything is energy--the frequencies determine the state, form and matter. So we come into the season of holidays, annually connecting to the energies of joy, love and peace. What makes the season so special? It is our co-creation of these energies, expression of love, joy and peace from our consciousness into reality. What if we chose to experience, feel and express love, joy and peace every day? They say love, divine or unconditional love, is the highest vibration. It is the power that heals the shadows, hurts of the past for liberation, peace and freedom. If you chose joy and love every day, understand how much it would make a difference in your life and others who interact with you and those energies would go outwards into this world. What a ripple effect it would create. This power lies within each one of us. Singing or chanting elevates mood, stimulates endorphins, expands prana, balances the autonomic nervous system, relaxes the body, brings peace and clarity of mind. Plus, in choosing to listen to songs with higher vibrational words and sounds, your body-mind-emotions will resonate to those vibrations. The higher vibrational songs and all mantras will raise your consciousness state to states such as peace, joy, compassion and love. Practicing meditation daily will assist you in connecting to Infinity and bring you greater peace, divine love, joy and harmony. In the elevated states of love and joy, you can best tap into your creative abilities and endowments to fulfill your life purpose in bringing your creations forward. Live in states of joy and love so you can bring your dreams, higher life purpose and passions into creation and experience a more enjoyable and fulfilling life.

BODY - Fitness BE YOUR OWN COACH: FITNESS COACHES SHOULD BE FACILITATORS By Nia Kaye

I

have been continually thinking about the importance of coaching in both reaching and sustaining your fitness goals. I am so grateful to have two extremely knowledgeable coaches on my side and feel I have made great progress and learned a lot being coached by them. There are two main reasons that are responsible for me making the progress that I have; 1. My coaches have a lot of knowledge and experience. 2. I am also my own coach.

22

I am a firm believer in the fact that the best teachers are facilitators. The best teachers don’t spoon feed and tell you what you should know, instead, they establish an environment where learners feel sufficiently confident to explore possibilities, make mistakes, but ultimately meet the learning objective. From both a teaching and a learning perspective, there is nothing more empowering than utilizing current skills and knowledge to progress further and succeed. This philosophy infiltrated my

DECEMBER 2017

entire teaching career and cemented my passion for teaching. Some people say that teaching is selfless or altruistic, I disagree. I get a lot of satisfaction from enabling children to grow and see how they become infinitely better at reacting to unexpected outcomes. From as young as 5, I taught children to cope with disappointment, failure and to apply learned experiences to similar situations. Coaching in fitness, I think, should be approached in the same way. I

Tampa Bay Wellness


BODY - Fitness perceive my coaches as facilitators, so the responsibility of coaching also falls on me. Like the classroom, I am given guidelines and parameters, but there is so much scope in between. It is how I use this scope that has defined my success. For example, I am given a certain level of macro-nutrients to hit daily instead of a rigid meal plan. I am given some guidelines on when is best to consume fats/proteins/carbohydrates as well as a fiber goal, but other than that, the rest is all me. The freedom initially made me want to eat cereal and chocolate with every meal. I soon realized that this left my skin not as clear, as well as making me feel lethargic and forever hungry! Over time, I progressed, but I am still learning what foods to eat, and when, to keep me full, satisfied and full of energy. Up until 2 months ago, I was eating oats and protein for breakfast daily. Only when my carbohydrates declined, did I switch this up to a lower carb/higher fat option. I have found this to keep me full for so much longer. I am so pleased that I was allowed to experience this myself and make ‘mistakes’ to get there. Having experienced the difference between the two breakfast options myself is so much more beneficial to my fitness journey than simply being instructed on what to eat. Facilitating is infinitely harder than teaching. Only people who really know what they are talking about are able to be good facilitators. With less definitive outcomes, there is more ‘gray area’, so there are more questions. Only people who are exceptionally competent in their field are able to cope with this as it tests exactly how well you know your subject area. This doesn’t mean my coaches know everything (though they do know a lot), but it does mean they have an extremely good level of knowledge as well as not being afraid to ask for others’ expertise where needed (My facilitators have called doctors to answer questions on blood work instead of claiming they were experts). Facilitating also requires confidence. Giving freedom to people you are teaching is risky! You are relinquishing control and enlisting trust in people you are coaching (and anyone can vouch for how difficult that is!) From a learner’s perspective, facilitating, rather than being told what to do is also more difficult. It is easy to execute instructions – this is what I loved about group fitness classes.

You really don’t have to think, you just ‘do’. While this was great for me at the start of my fitness journey, metacognition should infiltrate any aspect of life you value. You really should consider why you think and behave in particular ways if you want to understand yourself better and make progress. Lots of people talk about ‘mind, muscle connection’ whilst working out, and I completely agree on the importance of this. Really thinking about each exercise and the contraction makes you mentally, as well as physically, active in your workout. You know your body better than anyone and only you know the difference between an exercise hurting and an exercise really not feeling good. You also are the only one who can communicate whether the exercise is actually benefiting you. Perhaps the hardest part for both coaches and coach-ees is motivation. Facilitating requires a lot of time and effort to successfully establish and continue, as well as a lot more responsibility and accountability for both parties. Unfortunately, there really is no substitute for motivation and the people who work the hardest, will ultimately get the best results. -Benchpressing Baubles on both Wordpress and Instagram.

DECEMBER 2017

By Imsara

ARIES March 21st – April 19th

LEO

TAURUS

GEMINI

April 20th – May 20th

May 21st– June 20th

Small but steady efforts will continue to bless your life. Do not distract yourself with things that are not important to your welfare. Think about areas in your life you need to strengthen and do so accordingly. As the year progresses you will be happy you did.

Decision are best made near the end of the month. Keep focused on do-ing the details and be content on making slower progress. 2018 is a year that can catch you by surprise. Plan to give yourself greater space to shift as you need to.

LIBRA

VIRGO

July 23 – August 22

It is a cautious time for you in the sense that all habits need evaluated and all excess needs to be eliminated. Leave the pursuit of recognition to others for you can be assured it is the ego. Appreciation of your own inner worth by your own evaluation leads to a better outcome in all your affairs.

SAGITTARIUS Nov. 22nd – Dec. 21st

Spend some time along in thought and meditation. Give a silent thank you for Saturn has now left your sign as of December 19th. So, what have you learned? How have you grown? What have you surrendered? All of these mat-ters are of great importance as you take stock of your direction for 2018. It is reori-entation time.

Sept. 23rd – Oct. 22nd

August 23 to September 22

Be at peace as long as you attune to your inner truth. Resist the impulse to do more. Nothing accomplished on the outside can ever determine your value. It is the inner view of who you are that matters.

Growth and change will be yours as long as you stick to the objective ap-proach. Attitudes are critical to anything you take on of importance. Take your cue from nature and make the most of all opportunities. You can shift perspective and that can make any road you travel much easier.

AQUARIUS

CAPRICORN

Jan. 20th – Feb. 18th

Dec. 22nd – Jan. 19th

Check where your attitude is too serious. This is a month of joy and celebration. Keep in mind that the attitude of humor can make even the darkest of days brighter. Keep things moving in both your life and your body. Set some reso-lutions that in 2018 you will discover more ways to enjoy life. You can do it!

Take note of any unrealistic attitudes. Leave any obsessions at the door. Temper flights of fancy with an objective assessment of inner truth. Appre-ciate those you see around you with gratitude for both their folly and their wisdom.

CANCER June 21st – July 22nd

Your tolerance for confusion and obstacles is growing thin. Make some decisions and then follow-through. Seek advice if sincerely needed. Foundations you have built can now be tested while remaining old issues must be surrendered or resolved. This is true throughout 2018. You can no longer tread a path that is not true for you.

SCORPIO October 23 to November 21

Inexperience is underrated for it is one of the greatest teachers. And attitude of innocent and open acceptance in all you learn this month will stand you in good stead. It is a year in which all experiences can have a deeper meaning as well as a silver lining. Keep eyes wide open.

PISCES Feb. 19th – March 20th

It is a good month to relax and entertain greater notions relative to new possibilities and goals. Leave any chaos to others and move through the swirl with keeping in mind the attainment of your goals. Success will come.

BODY - Holistic Florida 1st Southern State to Legalize Medical Marijuana

M

edical marijuana is legal in 30 states, recreation cannabis in nine while CBD-hemp oil is legal in all 50 states. These statistics are not good for big pharmaceutical companies, but life-altering for many seeking a natural alternative to health and pain management. “The medical benefits of cannabidiol (CBD) are near miraculous,” said Catherine Zito, CEO of American Wellness, Inc. and USDA organic CBD distributor. I take CBD (Cannabis sativa) everyday and so does my active 88 year-old mother. We both suffer from arthritis and take it as a nutritional supplement so we can enjoy a pain-free life. A 2017 review of over 10,000 recent studies by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine concluded that “conclusive or substantial evidence” exists in support of the clinical use of cannabis for the treatment of chronic pain and other conditions. Medical practitioners and researchers concerned about the current opioid crisis point out that the use of marijuana for pain relief could result in fewer prescriptions for the highly addictive opioid painkillers. Cannabis produces a variety of compounds known as cannabinoids, many of which have not been detected in any other plant. When cannabis is consumed, cannabinoids bind to receptor sites throughout the brain and body. Depending on the profile, different types of relief are possible. CBD is a compound found in the stalk and leaves of the hemp plant and works as a natural antiinflammatory with no psycho-activity. In other words, you can’t get high or stoned from taking it. CBD is safe for all ages and can be purchased in nutrition stores or online in capsules, oil and topicals. Scientific and clinical studies show

CBD eases symptoms of a wide range of conditions such as stress, chronic pain, autism, seizures, stoke, cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, MS, joint pain, arthritis, osteoporosis, fatigue and high blood pressure. Zito says you can find over one million CBD hemp oil products on the market today with costs starting at about $80 per month. She and suggests doing your research before you buy and pay close attention to labeling and origin of where the hemp is grown. Toxic soil and harmful pesticides can be easily hidden in imported products, but with the U.S. farm bill passing in 2014 hemp is back and this is a big plus for our farmers and patients. In 2016 Amendment 2 passed with a popular vote of 71% to establish a medical marijuana program in Florida. The first dispensary of low-THC cannabis opened in Tallahassee on July 26, 2016. Medical marijuana is generally processed with a combination of CBD and THC which is derived from the buds and flowers of a female cannabis plant. Although you can get high from THC, one of our 2,000 qualified ordering Florida physicians can adjust the dosing to neutralize the euphoric effects. Statistics show medical cannabis can help with 20+ medical conditions including pain management, sleep disorders, anxiety, Crohn’s disease, IBS, kidney disease, liver disease and post cancer treatment for nausea. Most surprising, recent studies show medical cannabis can help treat alcoholism and opioid addiction too. Clinical trials are underway to evaluate the safety and efficacy of using medical marijuana to manage symptoms of PTSD in U.S. army veterans, the effectiveness of transdermal patches, pre and post cancer

treatments, suppositories for fibromyalgia, diabetic neuropathy and other nerve pain disorders. “First time medical marijuana patients can expect to pay anywhere from $100$200 for an office visit plus medications and regular doctor visits,” said Zito. Insurance does not pay for medical cannabis and patients who can’t afford high out of pocket expenses are out of luck. With a doctor’s referral in hand, a patient can make application through the Florida’s Compassionate Use Registry for an ID card. Approved forms include oils, topicals, dried flower, oral sprays, vaporizers, vape pens cartridges and edibles from one of Florida’s 10 designated dispensaries and treatment centers. There are over 26,000 published studies and reviews in the U.S. Library of Medicine and scientific literature referencing the cannabis plant and its cannabinoids. Testimonials from medical cannabis patients and their physicians are the main driving force for over 1,000 new studies published annually. This is only the beginning as nutrition savvy consumers are finding powerful results when combining cannabis with popular herbs to make tinctures, teas and therapeutic edibles. Some studies have shown that when Ashwagandha and cannabis are combined they work well as an anti-anxiety and antidepressant. Rosemary, black pepper and cannabis help regulate immune function and inflammation. Lavender and cannabis are a powerful pair with their abundance of terpene linallol often used as a muscle relaxant, anti-inflammatory and anti-convulsant.

FEATURE - 2018 FORECAST

By Aluna Michaels, M.A.

SPIRITUAL ASTROLOGY FORECAST FOR THE

YEAR 2018 January — Happy New Year! We

start out with wonderful energy as revolutionary Uranus moves direct, helping you embrace the changes you want to make. Since steady Saturn just entered its own sign of Capricorn, you’ll be able to stick with commitments. Make sure your resolutions match your values and true desires. Don’t commit to what you’re not ready to do, or what you don’t actually want to do. Meditate to align with your authentic self to find your true goals. You can make amazing breakthroughs, even in longstanding “issues”.

February — There’s a total eclipse

the 1st, with the Sun in Aquarius and Moon in Leo. Both signs have a lot to do with maintaining your authentic self while being in a group. Venus is also mixed into the eclipse, emphasizing relationships and how to be true to yourself, while blending with another. Think about your New Years’s resolutions so you stick with what’s vital, but able to let go of less crucial concerns. Meditate on your parents’ relationship and how you can shift the unconscious ways you repeat those patterns. The results bring happier love partnerships, closer friendships and and even increased prosperity!

March — Jupiter, the planet of

abundance, turns retrograde, so focus on financial integrity. Re-work your personal budget or find ways to address debt. Read books on spirituality and prosperity to see if you’re blocking the flow of money with guilt or other limiting beliefs. Meditate on opening your heart. Healing emotional wounds gives you more “love integrity”, so you can be compassionate and authentic. Relationships deepen and you’ll know happiness generating within each of you individually and being shared together. This

26

removes the burden of expectation and lowers abandonment fears!

April — Saturn and Mars are both in

Capricorn, keeping you on track business-wise. They also help with sticking to personal or spiritual goals. Continue taking responsibility for your progress or lack of it. Please be gentle in your self-assessment, since this month’s energy can be critical. Instead, be positive and inspired about changes to be made. Just make them without harsh judgment. Venus is in Taurus, bringing a focus on gratitude. Validate your successes. Meditate on affirmations. Compliment others often. Let love soften the intensity of ambition, so you get where you want to go, but with more joy!

May — Uranus moves into Taurus for

a seven year stay! You can make significant breakthroughs around eating, body image and money. If you have anxiety issues, you can learn to feel present in your own skin. Meditate on being grounded. Image having roots that go deep into the earth, or even learn about the root chakra. There can be a general cultural movement about seeing the sacred within the body. Taurus is also about primal passion on the positive side, and sexual compulsion on the challenging side. In light of the events of the sexual abuses of Hollywood types in late 2017, Uranus brings a new way to deal with power and sexuality; and finding ways to feel safe within the “mine field” of desire.

June — Mars turns retrograde in

Aquarius. Unlike Mercury, Mars doesn’t retrograde often. It’s a good time to examine your career goals and to see if where you’re headed is truly where you want to go. Sometimes you can be busy just “doing things” and forget the big picture. You can DECEMBER 2017

set a high aspiration and get a degree in a new field. Alternately, you can start a fitness plan with a different attitude, in a way that honors your body’s unique needs. You can also make it a priority to connect with friends that lift your spirits and who make you happy that you’re you!

July — We have a solar and lunar

eclipse this month, one connects with Pluto and one with Mars. They provide insight into repressed anger that can block you from career goals, relationship harmony and physical health. Meditate on self-love and be gentle with yourself throughout the day, not just during your quiet time. As tension releases inside, you’ll be able to forgive other people or difficult circumstances. Now doors of opportunity can open for prosperity, love and healing! Also, Jupiter moves direct and helps you believe all things are possible when you open to the flow of life.

August

— It’s unusual, but we have another solar eclipse this month! This one emphasizes the sign of Leo in all its glory. Focus on what makes you happy. Make time for hobbies, art, dancing, sports and dating! Even if you’re partnered, treat each other with the enthusiasm of new lovers. Maybe recreate your first date! Having fun can also mean spending more time with pets and kids. Meditate on positive affirmations, and practice seeing the bright side of everything that happens to you this month. Notice how that shift of perspective heals your world.

September — Things are more

“back to business” than they were in playful August. That’s good since it coincides with back to school, too. Hopefully you feel refreshed and your creativity is re-ignited, Tampa Bay Wellness


FEATURE - 2018 FORECAST making work and goals flow along. As hardworking Saturn moves direct, it’s easy to stay focused on and interested in what needs to be done. Mid-month, there can be a small crisis dealing with someone who resists being cooperative in a group. It could be a co-worker, family member or close friend. Be patient. Try not to get angry or even give well-meaning solutions. By month’s end, they’ll have a breakthrough about their behavior that heals the group dynamic much more powerfully than if you helped them see the pattern. Keep to your tasks while sending love and await good results.

October — Venus turns retrograde,

which it doesn’t do very often (unlike Mercury)! Meditate on your relationship goals. Since Venus is in Scorpio, it’s important to let go of old resentments, and to heal issues around trust and intimacy. You’ll really be able to open your heart to new love, or if

December

partnered, renew your connection so you truly feel grateful for him/her. Also become aware of your own self-criticism and internal shaming. You’re not that bad and are completely worthy of love. Get those inner blocks out of the way so you feel joy flowing into your life!

November — Jupiter, the planet

of abundance and optimism, moves into its own sign of Sagittarius for a year stay! Make your spiritual practice about gratitude and affirmations. There’s so much scientific research about the physical and emotional health benefits of gratitude. But don’t just think about it, really do it! Each night, make a list of positive things that happened to you that day. Smile and say or think positive statements to yourself in the mirror. Believe that your commitment to meditation changes the energetic “climate” of your home, office and neighborhood. It’s also a great time to plan a trip to a dream location!

— Mars, the planet of energy, is in Pisces this month. It’s a great time to direct your efforts in a spiritual direction. Start a yoga or meditation practice. Actively work toward forgiveness of others and yourself. Maybe bring coffee to a co-worker who irks you. You could smooth things over with a relative at a holiday gathering. You’ll feel healthier, happier and more positive as you release energy that was covered up by these buried grievances. Also, get enough sleep because there can be incredible messages in your dreams that give guidance for 2019! Aluna Michaels is a second-generation astrologer. She also holds a Masters in Spiritual Counseling and has been teaching and consulting for more than three decades. Her book “Spiritual Gifts of the 12 Astrological Signs” is now on Amazon in Kindle version and as an E-book on her website. Aluna is available for appointments in her home, by phone or Skype.

FEATURE - The Numbers are in... By Charles Zinner

Christmas: Eleven - Rising Power on the Horizon

E

leven is a Master Number in Numerology. It denotes the ability and power to stand between the worlds and bring into this dimension, the highest concepts and ideals. The 11 is the sensitive, one who is able to fully utilize the psychic abilities to tune into the messages that emanate from the ineffable world of higher energies, that is, Source and then deriving those highest ideals of advanced consciousness, is able to impart the wisdom and light to others for the benefit of all. The 11’s consciousness is an inborn ability to transcend the ordinary, and because of this internal higher vibration and energy, there is always an underlying tension because spiritual energies are one’s truest divine being. The result is that because of the extreme sensitivities and this constant underlying energy, an energy that will not be stifled or subdued, the 11 person is always in a constant tug between being “normal” and being called on to express the spiritual in every waking and sometimes sleeping moment. Consciousness means an awareness, an understanding, in the sense

30

of enlightenment, that is, a sense of knowing, a clarity about things seen and unseen, Sharpened intuition on all levels, exists with the 11 who is always learning and bringing in the light to help others in their darkness. The 11 is a different consciousness than most of humankind, and while the 11 is the prophet, the medium, the soothsayer, the sage, the normal reality experienced by the 11 is very different. Spirit always flows through the 11; it has increasing pressure to express the Truth, so much so that if not subdued, the energy can cause great fatigue and other ramifications.. One of the most famous American psychics, Edgar Cayce was told by his spirit guides to stop working so hard and giving many readings each and every day. He ignored the advice and his health failed, ultimately causing him to transition.

December 25, 2017 is an 11 day. December is the 12th month of the year and numerologically is a three (12 = 1+2 = 3). 3 is significant in that we live in a 3 DECEMBER 2017

dimensional world and 3 is the sign of the trinity. Trinity underlines all things in our dimensional reality. It is a creative energy, the result of the 1 (masculine) and the 2, the feminine creating the third, the offspring. It is creativity especially through communication, art, literature. It is the fruit of opposites which are combined into the new.

The 25th is a 7 (2+5 =7) 7 is known as the mystic’s number, a seeker who goes within, 7 candles on the minora (Jewish candle lantern), the religious leader and analyst who ponders alone and deeply. The year 2017 is a 1 (2+0+1+7 = 10 = 1+0 =1). The 1 is the beginning, the dynamic first energy, masculine and Yang (outward, rising energy). Thus (Dec 25, 2017) 3 +7+1 = 11, a Master Number. This will be a truly notable Christmas as we have these series of numbers which will give us a powerful energy - 11.! This year (2017) is a 1, November was an 11 month. Christmas will be an 11 and this upcoming New Year, will be a 11. Tampa Bay Wellness


2018 is a 11, (2+0+1+8 = 11) and it will arrive in January, a 1 month. Notice the series of 1s? We have both 1 (Jan), representing the new and dynamic incoming energy of a New Year, and the new year will be an 11! Two 1s, (11) shows that the energy of 1 going into another 1. This is power reinforcing dynamic energy! Do you now understand why 9/11 was so powerful? We had the old(9) ending and the 11- new beginnings expressed in a totally unexpected and powerful way…. That is why in Numerology, we value and respect the power of the 11. Its ability to bring in the newer and higher ideals upgrades our consciousness and with that moving up, all of mankind is benefits. Interestingly, and almost a mirror of this discussion is the date Dec 21, 2012… which was alleged to be the beginning of the new world. Dec 21, 2012 is actually another 11! (3+3+5 = 11 or Dec = 12 =1+2= 3; 21st = 2+1= 3 and 2+0+1+2 = 5). Known as the beginning of the new age, the number 11 personifies what is taking place in this space and time. Simply put, our world, universe and most importantly our consciousness is changing, expanding and accelerating faster than ever before. We are surrounded by and bathed in cosmic energy from the center of the universe which along with our intentions is creating the new human… capable of creation at the highest and undreamed levels! Enjoy the ride! This is the beginning of the Golden Age!
