‘It’s a lifestyle’ Barreista Studio: Grace, strength, endurance Maya Angelou said it best: “When you learn, teach. When you get, give.” With those words as motivation, Anita GravesMartinez, CPT, SNS started on a journey — a new lifestyle. “I’m no different from anyone else,” she explained. “I was in my 30s with two children — busy, working, exhausted, overweight and overwhelmed. That was when I decided to embark on my own vision of being stronger physically and mentally. It took years on my own, through trial and error, trying different diets and modes of exercise, and practically starving myself along the way. The weight came off but I didn’t feel strong, happy or satisfied.” Something more was called for. To make it a sustainable, lasting lifestyle, Graves-Martinez realized she needed to enjoy exercise and have a better relationship with food. She soaked up information on her own, but felt she wasn’t quite there yet. “I decided to change gears,” she said. “I worked in advertising for 15 years and at 40, I decided to go back to school.” After four years of online studies and hands-on training, Graves-Martinez earned certifications in personal training, sport nutrition, athletic coaching and barre. She was recently certified to teach rebounding

(mini trampoline) through BarreConcept. “I learned so much. I wanted to share it with everyone. The puzzle pieces were coming together. I now realized that everyone is unique. For diet and exercise to be successful in one’s own life, it needs to become a lifestyle and personal. It needs to be approached with each individual’s needs,” she discovered. This was important to her because she lives with a heart defect and intensive exercise can be “counter productive, and eating healthy and clean is paramount.” Graves-Martinez opened Barreista Studio in February 2018. The name is a combination of the barre discipline and her time working as a

coffee barista while earning her degrees. Her focus is helping people find their strength as she did — physically and mentally — to empower from the inside out. Barre is her exercise of choice. “It’s fun and it works — there is no plateau at the barre. It doesn’t get easier, you get stronger,” she said. “It’s the CONTINUES PAGE 12

A tale of two bodies Taos writer pens book about living with Parkinson’s disease BY S COT T G E R D E S

“Parkinson’s, this chronic, progressive, degenerative disease, is always with me. There is no cure. At least not yet. It compromises my balance; makes my movement slow, clumsy and uncoordinated; and periodically causes my legs to freeze up, imprisoning me in my own body. But its most pernicious aspect is its intrusion into my thoughts. With each movement, it commandeers my consciousness and triggers endless rumination. Though drug therapies may moderate my motor symptoms to a point and for a time, there’s no medication to block Parkinson’s invasion of my mind.” And with that, retired forensic and consulting psychologist and teacher Robert Silver, Ph.D., takes our hands leading us through his personal journey of dealing with Parkinson’s disease in his book, “Keepin’ On: Living Well with Parkinson’s Disease” (Nighthawk Press 2018). Silver’s ups and downs, wins and losses, laughs and cries, and trials and errors are presented with a genuine wit, wisdom and sincerity. CINDY BROWN His gifted way with words helps others in the same boat and their Taos author Robert Silver signs a copy of his book loved ones and caregivers. The book offers the rest of us an intimate for Annette Arellano at the Harwood Museum look at the ailment most people associate with actor Michael J. Fox. in March 2018 during a book release. His book, “Keepin’ On: Living Well with Parkinson’s Disease,” Silver is a Team Fox member of The Michael J. Fox Foundation for was published by Nighthawk Press. Parkinson’s Research. “Parkinson’s disease is a chronic, degenerative neurological disorder that affects one in 100 people over age 60,” according to information at michaeljfox.org. “While the average age at onset is 60, people have been diagnosed as young as 18. There is no objective test, or biomarker, for Parkinson’s disease, so the rate of misdiagnosis can be relatively high, especially when the diagnosis is made by a nonspecialist. Estimates of the number of people living with the disease therefore vary, but recent research indicates that at least one million people in the United States, and more than five million worldwide, have Parkinson’s disease.” An estimated 10,000 people in New Mexico have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. About 250,000 New Mexicans live with some kind of movement disorder. CONTINUES PAGE 16

LUIS SANCHEZ SATURNO/THE NEW MEXICAN

Rob Barteletti and his wife Karen St. Clair share a moment in Feb. 2018 in their kitchen over a cup of tea. Barteletti, who has Parkinson's disease, has to hang on to the counter for stability. There are an estimated 10,000 people living with Parkinson's in the state and only three neurologists who specialize in the treatment of the disease and similar conditions.

heories regarding the causes of the disease are thought to be a combination of a rare single, genetic mutation and exposure to a chemical or an environmental toxin. It is, however, presently impossible to conclusively prove what specifically caused a person to contract Parkinson’s. The research continues. Silver was diagnosed with the disease about 12 years ago and was convinced his life had just been shot to hell. Frankly, “Parkinson’s is mostly a constant pain in the ass,” he writes. But he perseveres. Silver stays as active as he can — as a man in his early 70s — hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, dancing, going to the gym and golfing and, of course, taking the daily cocktails of pills the disease demands in order to have some respite. There is no asking for pity from Silver. He doesn’t want it. Instead, he is steadfastly living a fulfilling life even as Parkinson’s tries to erect more walls. Throughout the memoir, Silver encourages himself and fellow Parkinson’s patients to ‘keep on keepin’ on.’ And although there is no cure today, there is hope. In March 2018, Silver spoke to The Taos News after returning from a visit to the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla, California. “The Salk Institute focuses on both research that can contribute to understanding the disease and also nurturing the next generation of researchers,” wrote Cindy Brown. “Silver visited with a Parkinson’s disease research scientist. ‘I came away from there electrified with this feeling that help is on the way. It is not around the corner, but in my lifetime there may be a cure,’ he said.” To purchase the book, visit local bookstores or order it from nighthawkpress.com or on Amazon. Profits from the sale of Silver’s book go to Parkinson’s research, education and support services.

Remedios

Traditional herbal remedies evolve, survive in Taos

BY MARY ANN WELLS

R E M E D I O S (remedies), the traditional herbal home remedies Taoseña grandmothers have used for generations, have become commercially viable commodities. At least two local businesses, the Taos Herb Company and Cid’s Food Market, prepare and market remedios. Most of their local customers are members of Taos’ modern tricultural community who prefer remedios and herbs to treat their minor ills.

A S S A S S I N S C R E E D.W I K I A .C O M / P U B L I C D O M A I N

Remedios resulted from an ancient marriage of Hispanic and American Indian herbal knowledge. Both European and native American plants are used to treat a variety of ailments. Several centuries ago, on this far frontier of the Hispanic world, women took responsibility for their families’ health care. They sought the

advice of their new Indian neighbors on the healing properties of local plants and in the process exchanged their knowledge of the European herbs they had brought with them. The body of knowledge grew over the years and was passed down to new generations of Taoseños. The remedies tradition survived more strongly in some families than others. Taoseña Guadalupe Valerio Dominguez came to her vocation of “sobadora” and knowledge of herbs from family tradition. A sobadora is a traditional healer, registered by the state, who uses massage and herbal remedios to treat the ill. Dominguez says her mentor/ grandmother taught her, “The plant you need for your own health grows within five feet of your home.” CONTINUES ON PAGE 20

rowing up in Ranchos de Taos, Dominguez learned the use of plants as medicine. “Everything was there — growing by the ditch, by the river — we were aware of it and used it.” A licensed massage therapist as well as a sobadora, Dominguez uses herbal remedies in treating her patients. But since she does not have time to gather and prepare the herbs her patients need, she purchases them prepackaged. She also refers patients to local herbalists. Local American Indian herbalists are reluctant to speak of their traditions according to Gov. Red Eagle Rael of Picuris Pueblo. He says, “That [herbs and remedios] is a touchy subject, then patiently explains that Pueblo Indians believe herbal remedies are too closely associated with the spiritual world to be discussed casually. Both Indians and Hispanics have welcomed allopathic and other medical practition ers into the community and have pragmatically embraced such modern medicines as antibiotics, while still using many of the herbal remedies their ancestors formulated as remedios. Today in Taos, remedios, marketed by herbal companies from throughout the state, can be purchased prepackaged at pharmacies, supermarkets and specialty stores.

This article first appeared in the 2018 Spring—Issue #44 of Ayer y Hoy and is reprinted with permission from the Taos County Historical Society.

As Taoseña grandmothers have surrendered their traditional healthcare territory to modern medicine, fewer and fewer remember the vast array of plants that may be used for remedies or how to prepare them. And those who remember don’t always have the time to collect and prepare remedios. In the unique atmosphere of Taos’ tricultural community, late arriving Anglo herbalists are doing much to preserve the traditional remedies’ body of knowledge and are largely responsible for local herbs being available commercially. Robert Hawley, co-owner of the Taos Herb Company with his brother-in-law and sister Fritz and Tina Hahn, has been in business for 20 years. He says, “We cater to Spanish clients and have learned a lot from our elderly customers.” He prides himself on collecting herbs from the wild for the remedies he packages. For Taoseños interested in learning remedios lore first hand, Hawley leads herbal expeditions into the forest each summer. Contact him at (575) 758-1991 for details.

5 key intervention steps

BY LU K E N I C H O L S

Dealing with loved ones can be difficult sometimes and only gets harder when they have a problem with drugs and/or alcohol.

A big part of dealing with a loved one’s addiction is getting them into treatment. But what if they are unwilling to go? Intervention is the next logical step, however what is an intervention and how do you pull one off? Contrary to popular belief, successful interventions usually aren’t like the ones you see on TV or in the movie “Hangover 3” with the family sitting around and reading off of notecards. Interventions that are successful usually consist of several different techniques. Following are five key things to do when planning and carrying out an intervention:

24

1

Research treatment facilities.

Before an intervention takes place, you need to know where they are going. Once you get someone willing to go to treatment it is imperative that they go straight in. When someone is struggling with substance abuse they can waffle on the idea of treatment, so you have to have the facility already picked out so there is no debating on which destination. Adding time in between when your loved one becomes willing to go and getting them through the doors is deadly.

2

Build your team.

An intervention can either be done by the family or by a professional interventionist. A family is wise to choose the family members or friends of the addict that the addict will most likely listen to. It’s important those persons are at the intervention. On the other hand, an intervention done by an interventionist is usually conducted on a one-on-one basis, where the interventionist works with the addict alone to get their agreement to go to treatment. Since a lot of interventionists are ex-addicts themselves, they will have a shared point of reality with the addict, which may WELL TAOS

2 019 -2020

facilitate the reach for treatment. In some cases, the interventionist may decide to call in family members.

3

Get the team on the same page.

Once you have decided on your team, get them together and go over all the details so everyone is prepared to pull off the intervention.

4

Bring in the addict.

Approach them kindly and at first try to get them to see how treatment will benefit them. Show them the website or brochure of where they are going. It’s also a good idea to have someone from the facility ready to talk to them to answer any questions they might have.

5

If all else fails.

If this doesn’t work, you should be prepared to give them an ultimatum such as, “If you don’t go to treatment, you aren’t staying here anymore.” If they run off and refuse to listen, do not give in. You must hold strong or they won’t take it seriously. Even if they do run, most of the time they will come back and listen, and then agree to go to treatment.

Body boosts Popular dietary supplements

I

t’s not always easy or convenient to give our bodies all of the nutrients it needs every day. Many people take supplements in an effort to give ourselves an extra health boost — a preventative buffer to ward off illness. Vitamins C and D, and calcium, for example, have been supplement staples for decades. These days, however, more and more people are researching other body boosters. Following is a list of some of the more popular supplements people are taking, according to Rob Hawley, owner of Taos Herb Company: COENZYME Q 10

Also called Ubiquinol because it’s found in almost all living tissue. Co-Q-10 is most highly concentrated in very active and energetic tissues like muscle tissue. This is because it’s critical for the production of the energy

needed by muscles to do their work. Inadequate amounts of available Co-Q-10 result in weakened muscles. The heart being the most active and energy consuming muscle in the body is most affected by not having enough Co-Q-10. QUERCETIN

Quercetin is a bioflavonoid; bioflavonoids are brightly colored pigments from plants that are emerging as interesting and useful for human health. Discovered first in the oak tree from whose genus of Quercus the name is taken, Quercetin has anti-inflammatory properties that reduce allergy symptoms and is an antioxidant helping to protect cells from damage. MAGNESIUM

most plentiful mineral in the body and although we don’t hear about it as much as we do calcium, it plays far more important biochemical roles in the maintenance, repair and function of our bodies. Magnesium helps to relax muscles and can help to support healthy blood pressure, muscle tension and cramping and constipation. GABA

Gamma-aminobutyric acid, or GABA, is a naturally produced inhibitory neurotransmitter in our brains whose role is to reduce neuronal excitability. Excess neuronal excitability can cause anxiety, muscle tension and increased sensitivity to stress. GABA as a dietary supplement can help support a healthy nervous system. —Staff report

ALLRECIPES DINNER SPINNER This app relies on a community of more than 50 million people supplying recipes, thus giving it a more social feel. While this app is like the many others that create shopping lists and have recipe storage and recommendations, what separates Allrecipes is it shows you what recipes are the least expensive and what ingredients are on sale near you. And if you go to the grocery store at a loss of what to make for dinner, no worries — Allrecipes can recommend a meal as soon as you walk through the door. Read more at allrecipes.com. Downloads on the App Store and Google Play.

BIGOVEN

YUMMLY

Convenience is key with more than 500,000 recipes, menu planning, recipe inspiration and grocery list capabilities. It also offers a “Use up leftovers” section and information on how to reduce waste. Accessed through the app is the friendly home-cook community, which shares a passion for home cooking. And with recipe offerings such as Bourbon Sweet Potato Casserole with Sweet ’n’ Savory Bacon Pecans and Hawaiian Shrimp, all foodie bases are covered. Read more at bigoven.com. Downloads on the App Store and Google Play.

Yummly’s offerings include more than two million recipes and many videos, but the real difference from the others is how it tailors searches to your palate, needs and lifestyle. Over time, Yummly stores your likes and dislikes, and then starts to recommend recipes better suited to you. It can sort recipes by diet, allergy, cooking time, occasion and more. The app has a shopping list and an in-app store where you can purchase cooking essentials. Yummly is among the Top 100 essential apps from Apple, a three-time Webby Award yearly winner since 2016, a Google Play Award Nominee for best app and a past “Best of App store” winner.

BBC GOOD FOOD

TASTY

From across the pond comes an app from the UK’s No. 1 food brand. All recipes are thoroughly tested and given a seal of approval by a qualified nutritionist. This app provides cooking technique tips, healthy eating guides, recipe saving, family projects and meal plans, kitchen gadget reviews and recipe suggestions.

In addition to the highly touted step-by-step instructions and tons of videos, the Tasty app has an added bonus of keeping your phone’s screen awake while you’re cooking. Tasty is also customizable.

Complementary health care — including holistic alternatives, chiropractic services, Oriental medicine, massage and massage therapy, skin care, meditation, energy healing — is often best used in conjunction with Western medicine. Different fields of complimentary medicine have different certification processes and some disciplines (such as Reiki) are not licensed by the state. Due diligence on the part of the patient is sometimes required in order to find out whether certain options are indeed the best for one’s own health.
