Minerals, Inflammation and Joints - The Science Behind Natural Joint Health
Sarah Holvik, B.Sc. Nutritional Science. Nutritionist / Health Educator Healthy joints are not just a product of getting enough exercise and maintaining a healthy weight; nutritional factors play a large role in developing and protecting our joints against pain and inflammation. Dietary minerals are the building blocks of human tissue, and without sufficient levels in our diets, healthy tissue production becomes interrupted. Studies show that deficiencies in minerals such as manganese, copper, selenium and boron, lead to joint inflammation and cartilage degradation which can significantly hamper athletic performance and post exercise recovery. Nutritional supplementation with these minerals is an excellent way to fuel your joints and ensure your athletic performance is at the top of its game. cont. pg 22

Spas and athletic centers all over the world are beginning to make a dramatic difference in people’s lives, improving the way we manage stress, eat, and protect our health.
Why should we burn Beeswax and not Parafﬁn?
First of all, do some research and as we have found, parafﬁn begins as the grayish-black sludge which oozes from the backside of the petroleum reﬁneries. This crud is bleached and processed into ‘solid’ white parafﬁn using carcinogenic solidiﬁers. It is coloured with chemical dyes and scented with synthetic fragrances. When burned, these fragrances create ﬂural carbons which destroy your olfactory senses. Parafﬁn burns with a harsh white ﬂame while emitting an invisible black smoke which coats your walls, furnishings and your lungs. Parafﬁn costs upwards of a dollar an hour to burn because it burns so fast and so poorly. Beeswax, on the other hand, is a natural wax produced exclusively by bees from harvesting of the nectars and pollens of ﬂowers. There is no processing other than ‘rendering’, which is a basic ﬁltration process to remove natural debris. Pure cappings beeswax candles burn with a golden ﬂame and halo, no smoke and the negative ions clean the air each time you use them*. Pheylonian Beeswax Candles cost only pennies an hour to use and will burn efﬁciently all the way to the bottom. Pure beeswax is ultimately cheaper to use than parafﬁn, it is healthier and actually improves the physical air and energetic balance whenever used.
The Forgotten Foods…Remembered helps us remember not only that our foods and medicines come from Mother Nature but also that natural beauty and true health comes from within. We are only as healthy as our immune systems remain strong and resilient and our blood supply is cleaned, vitalized and regenerated regularly. We are only as young as our organs remain young and hearty. Optimum health and true fitness require a natural regiment of Mother Nature’s essentials…without the use of DRUGS OR ANABOLIC STEROIDS!

(Indepth description available online) POSITIVE IONS are responsible for holding particules in the air where they are inhaled. This includes dust, pollen, odours, toxins, along with viruses and bacteria. NEGATIVE IONS are the good ones in this case. The scientiﬁc principle at work here is that negative ions bind with the positive ions, creating complete molecules which have a heavier weight mass. Hence, the positive ions carrying toxins, dust, odours, etc., no longer ﬂoat where they are inhaled, they simply fall to the ground.

“If you want to change your life, master your brain” is the slogan for BrainMaster Technologies Inc, a Cleveland, Ohio (USA) manufacturer of electroencephalogram devices (EEG) used for biofeedback and related software and products. EEG biofeedback is best known as Neurofeedback or brainwave training as it monitors brainwave activity with the use of a computer, electrodes to the scalp and specially designed brainwave protocols. And, with specially designed reward based software becomes a relaxation learning tool guiding clients as they “play” and “learn” to improve and self regulate their brainwaves at will. (Neurofeedback or brainwave training is for young children to seniors). Over the past 30 years Evidenced Based research studies has continued to confirm the validity and credibility of Neurofeedback (brainwave) training. And, more research is needed! Neurofeedback (brainwave) training has been used by licensed practitioners for brainwave relaxation training for a myriad of symptoms and for performance improvement which seems to relate directly to dis-regulation of the relaxation/concentration cycle within the brain. When the brain is efficiently firing neurons a state of balance occurs oftentimes equated to a high state of mental or “mind” fitness. When the brainwave activity is not within the normal ranges various types of physical symptoms or inconsistent performance and behavior can occur. Mind fitness is the key to feeling good, having appropriate attention and concentration states of mind, more efficient learning capability, memory improvement, appropriate behavior, diminished health related symptoms, enhanced meditation, and improved peak performance. The challenges and exciting breakthroughs in brain science over the past decade only confirm the original “vision”, “intent” and “goals” of the BrainMaster Project which began many years ago. “The BrainMaster Project is based on the belief that the last, most important frontier is the mind. It is not space, not the oceans, or even the conservation of the earth. It is not medical breakthroughs. It is the mind, individually and collectively” says its founder Thomas Collura, PhD. “The vision is that we can become as aware of our minds as we are of our surroundings and bodies. That mental well-being, and mental fitness shall be as important as physical well-being, and physical fitness” said Dr. Thomas Collura decades ago. Today, more and more neuroscientists and researchers are agreeing that the brain is not stagnate as previously believed, but that it has the power to learn, change and heal itself and does so continually. “The confirmation of brain plasticity is by far one of the most important discoveries of this century” says Terri Collura, Vice President of BrainMaster Technologies Inc. “Brain plasticity helps us understand how and why the brain can change from brain state to brain state as well as on a permanent basis”. Many neuroscientists and mental health practitioners believe that the brain stores basically everything that it learns over our lifespan and continually builds neuro-pathways which allow memory to be more accessible and permanent. Riding a bicycle, skiing with perfect balance, speed and agility or remembering how to play a music instrument after many years or even decades comes back to us because the original neuro-pathways in the brain associated with those skills can be accessed at will --even in later years. Meditators learn how to get into deep alpha, theta and even delta states without effort over a period of time. Why? Neuro-pathways are created and reused in the brain as we repeat the same patterns or behavior over and over (practice). Basically everything we do, our personality, behavior traits, cognitive skills, physical agility etc., is “learned behavior”. The more we practice the more ingrained the information becomes in the brain and is expressed in many ways through brainwave activity. Neurofeedback (brainwave training) is a learning tool which more quickly and efficiently helps us learn how to self regulate brainwave activity and re-educate dis-regulation within the brainwave activity. The athlete who strives to “get into the zone” knows that when he or she is “in the zone” their actions become natural and effortless and all the past practice sessions pay off as mind and body become one. And, most importantly, the mind remains quiet. No internal chatter, no distractions, no interference. Intent and Action coalesce into perfection without effort. Neurofeedback (brainwave training) is fast becoming popular with astronauts as focus and concentration is essential for these peak performers. The US Archery team is also smiling since they began learning to focus and “get into the zone” with Neurofeedback. Ask the Italian soccer team, who won the World Cup how important Neurofeedback training was for their team win. Neurofeedback (brainwave training) was acclaimed as their “top secret training program”! If you want to change your life, master your brain.

Tips For Lowering Your LDL Cholesterol

To avoid a heart attack, more and more research is finding that your #1 strategy is getting your LDL (bad) cholesterol not just down, but way down. Striving for LDL levels of 100 and below is good, but dropping to 80 and lower may be even better. LDL levels of 81 Avoid all foods with trans fats. Limit your intake of foods with saturated fats and cholesterol (no more than 3½ ounces of seafood, poultry, or lean meat daily). ALL beans, including pinto beans, black beans, lentils, red beans, and soy beans, are full of nutritional riches – and are a very healthy, protein-packed alternative to meat or poultry. Beans help lower total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, blood sugar, and insulin levels, and may even lower cancer risk. Atherosclerosis is the #1 killer of Americans, and the primary cause of most heart attacks and strokes. Steer clear of these fats:* Trans fats (such as margarine, vegetable shortening, and partially hydrogenated oils) cont. p. 19 * Saturated fats (such as butter, palm oil, coconut oil, meat fats, and milk fats) * Cholesterol (found ONLY in animal products such as meat and cheese, not plants) 1.

Marine Phytoplankton are responsible for making up to 90% of Earth’s Oxygen-now for human use!
Marine phytoplankton are the food utilized by some of the world’s largest and longest living animals and fish. Blue Whales, humpbacks, baleen whales and more all eat plankton and live between 80-150 years while maintaining great strength and endurance and are sexually active until they die. [ClickPress, Thu Nov 10 2005] Tom Harper, a sea farmer in northern British Columbia, has created a 30 million dollar facility on the edge of the northern Pacific Ocean to grow marine phytoplankton year round to feed his shellfish. His process recreates the “Spring Bloom” of marine phytoplankton 365 days a year. The sea farm gives back in a very unique way.

Terry Chappell, MD Celebration of Health Association Bluffton, Ohio 419-358-4627 www.healthcelebration.com Memory loss and inability to think clearly are common complaints, especially co-existing with fatigue. Usually they are associated with toxicity (especially lead, mercury and aluminum), yeast imbalance, or food and chemical sensitivities, These are all easily detected through testing, but frequently the tests are not performed and thus the patient’s complaint is inadequately treated. Proper treatment can be highly effective, if done comprehensively. Chelating agents, anti-fungals, probiotics, special diet and desensitization are common therapies that must be offered. After a few months of these therapies, plus good nutritional supplements, and sometimes much sooner, major changes might be detected by the patient. Autism therapy is guided by the Defeat Autism Now protocol that is available on the internet. Some of the common additional treatments include methylcobalamin (B12 shots), a grain-free and milk-free diet, homeopathics, amino acids orally or by shot, and hyperbaric oxygen. Alzheimer’s, Parkinsonism, and Multiple Sclerosis can be treated effectively by balancing neurotransmitters and improving cell membrane receptor sites. Intravenous glutathione given in high doses at home can be helpful. Oxidative scavengers are useful. High doses of CoEnzyme Q10 and vitamin E might help, as can low doses of Naltrexone, which is a medicine that reverses narcotic overdoses. Intravenous phosphatidyl choline can be useful, as can very high doses of B12 intravenously and vitamin C. The latter formula is particularly helpful for various neuropathies, including diabetic neuropathy. Helpful oral preparations include niacinamide, lipothiamin, CDP choline, curcumin, Neurotone, and various substances that enhance glutathione production in the body. Medications are available to slow the progress of degenerative brain function, but they are not greatly effective. Not infrequently, they cause side effects. A brain that is not functioning well often needs a comprehenisve approach that is individualized. There are many potential causes and there are many solutions, some of which must be given together in order to get the best result.

America can achieve energy self-sufficiency in this generation, but only if the demand for change reaches a critical mass that’s strong enough to overcome irrational resistance and fear. The Potential Research Foundation invites readers to help carry this message to government representatives or individuals in the public or private sector who may have influence in the environmental and energy fields. Here’s what the average person can do to make a difference: •Go online to get the two-minute summary of David Blume’s book “Alcohol Can Be A Gas!” provided courtesy of www.alcoholcanbeagas.com. •Read the book and review the author’s supporting materials. •Tell others about it and purchase copies to pass along. •Contact The Potential Research Foundation at (623) 848-9361 for more information on how you can become involved. •Seek out others in your community who might be willing to help spread the word and tell them about the ethanol revolution for the 21st century. Together we can make a difference. Explore the ethanol story for yourself and consider the implications for our families, our nation and our planet. It’s not too late. The Potential Research Foundation encourages everyone work together to secure a safe, lasting and selfsufficient energy source for ourselves and for our children.

How To Take Back Control of the Seven Most Important Areas of your Life Dr. Erwin Jay, O.D. Biography: Erwin Jay is an author,
Glendale, Ariz. (June 01, 2009) – The Potential Research Foundation, a charitable and scientific organization based in Arizona, is launching a fresh initiative to renew government interest in alcohol as an alternative energy source. The new administration in Washington D.C. offers American citizens a fleeting window of opportunity to reduce our environmentally and economically dangerous dependency on foreign oil. A growing number of scientific and academic authorities agree that a lifestyle that relies on dwindling fossil fuels controlled by foreign interests is simply not sustainable. This idea can no longer be dismissed as some extremist’s hysterical doomsday prophecy. As news of job losses and financial collapse continues to escalate, it’s clear we’re in a negative spiral that can’t be reversed unless we act quickly and work together. After reviewing countless proposals, The Potential Research Foundation has identified the work of David Blume, Executive Director of the International Institute for Ecological Agriculture, as one of the most authoritative studies available on energy alternatives. Mr. Blume’s scientifically and critically acclaimed book “Alcohol Can Be A Gas!” offers a complete presentation of the case for an ethanol revolution. Here are just a few documented ethanol benefits that have been overlooked for decades by American business leaders, policy makers and news organizations: • The first American automobiles were flex fuel and capable of running on cheap, ultraefficient ethanol. • Most American cars can run today on 50% ethanol with no modifications, and most automakers already offer practical flex-fuel vehicles. • Renewable ethanol crops like cattails can be grown in marginal soil using reclaimed water, yielding many more gallons per acre than corn. • Sustainable ethanol crops actually remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere and yield many times more clean energy than it takes to grow and process them, producing no toxic waste. • Conversion to localized ethanol production infrastructure can be the next major growth industry with potential for full employment.

with nature to maintain a balanced state of vibrant health. This natural flow often becomes blocked by the negative energies that build up in the body through the stresses of life, resulting in many physical and emotional discomforts. In my fifteen-year journey as an intuitive healer, I’ve seen first-hand how the ancient practices of the indigenous peoples of the Americas can help release these accumulated blocks and restore harmony with the loving and abundant energy that connects all living things to Madre Tierra, or Mother Earth. In the days of the Aztecs, the Mayans and the Toltecs this connection was understood by practitioners who knew how the body resonates with the essence of plants and minerals and the rhythms of nature. Whatever you may choose to call it, they also maintained an unshakable belief in the benevolent animating force that guides all of the cellular functions that allow us to grow and thrive. Modern Latina healers who practice these ancient arts are known as Curandera, from the same Latin root where we get the English word for “cure.” Their centuries-old traditions have been handed down from one generation to the next in an unbroken chain of love. In my forthcoming book on the Curandera, I’ll explain in detail how their gifts manifest in several different forms. Some specialize in herbal cures while others focus on the health and alignment of the bones. My own gifts involve spiritual insight and guidance and the work of the Sobadora, a type of Curandera who heals with the hands through touch. As a Curandera by inheritance and by calling, it’s my spiritual duty and privilege to introduce these gifts to you as my ancestors handed them down to me. Let me assure you that I’m not against modern medicine. Every day it seems that science enables some miraculous new way to see inside the human body and watch its innate intelligence at work. Discoveries in genetics, electronics and chemistry allow us to observe and sometimes even assist the inner workings of our bodies in ways that were unimaginable to our beloved ancestors. And yet common sense tells us that humanity is much older than science. Is it possible that we might be overlooking valuable lessons from the past simply because they were not recorded in the language of science? Medieval nonsense like the idea of a flat world makes us cont. from p. 4 Intuitive Healer cont.p.5

smile today, but other, much older beliefs in the creative power of our thoughts, the restorative properties of plants and minerals or the significance of the electromagnetic energy field that surrounds all living things are being confirmed in laboratories around the world on a daily basis. My own experience with alternative healing began at the age of twelve when I discovered a passion for exploring the properties of plants and herbs. My Italian, Mexican and Yaqui Indian ancestry blessed me not only with a natural attraction to red wine, but also with strong Latina role models who revealed the ways of the Curandera by example. Coming from a long line of Sobadoras, I was blessed to be introduced to this way of thinking from my earliest memories. A series of life-changing events confirmed my calling and inspired me to pursue the healing ways of the Curandera. In 1994, in a moment of deep relaxation and peace, I experienced a vision of myself standing on a pyramid in Mexico, but because my finances were limited at the time, I had no idea how I would get there. Within a few weeks a friend who knew nothing about my vision called to say that she’d been planning a group trip to Mexico City and had somehow ended up with one extra ticket. At that point I knew that I had manifested the way to Mexico. Once there I discovered that we were staying a short distance from the sacred pyramids of Teotihuacan. Through the cooperation of my friend and a caring tour guide, I soon found myself standing on top of a pyramid exactly like the one in my vision. Other experiences have deepened my sense of connection to Spirit and helped me to develop the spiritual essence of my healing practice. While touring the awe-inspiring Veduta della Basilica Caterina di San Domenico in Siena, Italy, I sensed the presence of Saint Catherine di Siena. She revealed to me that I had been led there to meet her and that she is my spirit guide. I left there with a deep sense of peace that I am guided in my work for the highest good of those I meet. My practice as a Curandera is all about healing, empowerment, wellness and compassion. To find a trustworthy healer where you live, ask people you know for referrals. Reputable practitioners who have nurtured their gifts with family guidance will often have strong ties to the community and Latino arts and culture. True Curandera are instruments of divine healing and each one has their own unique style. They won’t attempt to force information on you that’s not for your highest good and rarely demand large amounts of money. In my own practice, although my rates are fixed for professional body work, I will never turn anyone away who comes to me for spiritual healing because of money. I wish you many blessings as you explore the ancient mysteries of the Curandera. Perhaps you’ll discover these gifts in yourself and seek guidance on how to develop them. Perhaps you’re seeking spiritual help to restore your body’s natural state of good health. Total wellness of body, mind and spirit is your divine birthright and you may be closer than you think to the vibrant health you desire.

Does it seem possible to you that you could be primarily a Spiritual Being living in a physical body in this material world and, therefore, that the essence of your being is Spirit-the Spirit of God? You know that you have been told that the Spirit of God dwells within you. And is it not usually understood that Spirit is eternal, immortal, and perfect? Does it not seem reasonable to you, then, that this Spirit that abides within you is an essential part of your very Being? And does it not follow that you have the potentiality of partaking of the qualities of eternity, immortality, and perfection inherent in this part of your Being? Would it seem not desirable and beneficial to you then to aspire to achieve that perfect, eternal, immortal existence or state of consciousness? Think about this. Could there be this greater ideal toward which you and all humankind could aspire? What a .glorious heritage for the human race! What a wonderful Destiny for every human soul! And then when you carefully ponder all these things, marvel at the revelation: How else could it be? Robert Wall Crary, Rishis Institute of Metaphysics; See our ad for a new class in Metaphysics elsewhere in this paper. MORE REFLECTIONS ON METAPHYSICS-Did you ever consider the idea that you are first and foremost an individualized expression of the Spirit of God living in a physical body? And does it seem strange to think that, as is true for most people, the dominance of the physical senses of your physical body are so prominent in your conscious awareness that your awareness of that Spirit is relatively limited? It is the reason there is generally so little known about it. Of course, this limitation varies with individuals since people vary in their spiritual unfoldment. You know it is commonly recognized that some people are more spiritually developed than others. If you can accept all this to be true, can you further entertain the possibility that this Spirit is the Son of God? In this assumption, it only follows that you are a Son of God. And inasmuch as you can fathom that you are a Son of God, you can realize that every human soul in the universe is a Son of God also. Understanding this, you can accept the realization that it is your Spiritual Destiny, one day, to perfect your soul to the point wherein you enter in Oneness in consciousness with that Spirit within you in the achievement of Spiritual Mastery and your Ascension into the realm of Spirit, just as Jesus did. You know it is He who came to show humankind the Way, and He exemplified this Way in His Life and in His Teachings.

Natural Health News/Ideas
cont from p. 1 Dr Brown What about massage for your immune system? What massage of muscles does for your body, massage of your immune system does for your health and overall resistance and increased vitality. This is the missing link! Massage of the immune system does not eliminate any modality, it adds to all as it facilitates balance. Massage of the immune system creates internal balance through colloid-osmotic pressure at the capillary level. This results in increased nutrition at the cellular level. Better nutritional absorption correlates to increased energy and better performance. Health and well being are a natural consequence of internal balance in the brain and body. While muscle massage removes toxins from the tissues, i.e. lactic acid, massage of the immune system removes toxins on the cellular level. Increasing absorption of nutrition in the cells and supporting the ATP energy cycle resulting in greater energy for improved performance. By accelerating the lymph a frequency is established that is in harmony with the energies that lie at the heart of all nature. There is no friction or energy imbalance between that which is trying to move and that which surrounds it. What is created is a field of harmony requiring very little or no force for the actual movement through space or time as demonstrated by quantum physics. Connecting with your internal environment through lymphatic massage strengths the resonate pulse that integrates energy and existence and expands the internal expression of strength and balance. Why has massage of the immune system been so little known and used? Massage of the immune system was changed to a specialized practice limited in scope to edema, rehabilitation after mastectomies, etc. and called manual lymph drainage as a piece meal approach to recirculate the lymph. We all have immune systems so why not massage them? Massage of your lymphatic system is a massage of your immune system. Lymphatic massage is a holistic technique on the full body that accelerates the flow of lymph through the vessels and system. This effectively detoxifies the body at cellular level and balances fluids throughout the entire body resulting in increased immunity both cellular and humoral. If you want to perform at your highest level, get a lymphatic massage. Before the game chances are you will be just a bit better than the competition because your internal environment reflects the external environment. If you are in balance internally so will you be balanced in your performance. Lymphatic massage balances nero-hormones and serotonin to increase your sense of well being which leads to peak performance. To learn more about this remarkable lymphatic technique and to read Dr. Brown’s lymphatic massage book “The Touch that Heals” which can be downloaded visit http://www.drbrownslymphaticmassage.com/book.htm.

ALP is the lost knowledge of how to treat the lymphatic system, now rediscovered and made available to us all who practice lymphatic drainage/massage.

Brown is also recognized by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) as a continuing education Approved Provider.
REFLECTIONS ON METAPHYSICS-Friend, do you ask why things are as they are, why one person gets all the breaks and another experiences only misfortune? Do you believe things are fated, that they are just “meant to be,” and that nothing can be done about it? We say that there are LAWS TO LIVING which are just as exact as the laws of mathematics. With these Laws, you can learn to LIVE and to solve every human problem, yes, every human problem! But, to do this, these Laws must be learnedAnd then they must be lived until they become an integral, indelible part of your total consciousness. In so doing and in so living, you gradually come to know that you are first and foremost a Spiritual Being living in a physical body. In this awareness, you realize that the task of your conscious mind is to surrender its will to the Will of that Spirit within you until you enter into Oneness in consciousness with that Spirit-the Spirit of God of your very own Being. This is your spiritual heritage; it is your Spiritual Destiny! And it is so whether or not you are now able to accept it, though it will not, it cannot, occur in your life until you do and until you learn these Laws and instill Them completely in your consciousness. For only in doing so can you enter into Them in consciousness. Robert Wall Crary, Rishis Institute ofMetaphysics; See our ad for a new class in Metaphysics elsewhere in this paper.

Another wonderful ability of the Calcium BentoniteClay is that it has the ability to stimulate the lymphatic system. The more clay that is used in the therapy, the more powerful the response. So Pure you can eat it* So Go Play in the Clay* cont. from p. 1 7 Fires Bearcloud “To everyone who has been a part of my journey I send you a heart-felt thank you & wish you all the blessings& magic the universe has to offer. With the most humble gratitude this book is dedicated to the Star Nation people & to all of humanity.” There is so much that could be said about “7 Fires” however, I am choosing to share some of Bearcloud’s own words. I feel that his way of expressing himself about his journey is far better than what I could say about the book. With that said I want to share that Bearcloud was born a Native American of mixed blood. He is a member of the Ni-U-kon-ska nation, that began in the high plains of North America. A vision seeker & visionary artist, he has devoted his life to portraying the elements of the earth through paintings conceived in sacred ceremony in harmony with the traditions of his people. Every one of his paintings tells a story based in Native culture, portraying beautiful scenes & communicating qualities beyond the physical realm while expressing the importance of living in harmony with the Earth & the teachings of nature. The book is a true story with only a few changes in the names of some of the people involved. His journey took a different turn when he discovered unique symbols unknown to him yet very familiar. Stepping onto a new path in the heart of the Great Mystery, he began to see that these symbols contained an unrecognized silent language given to all people. That silent language was similar in nature to the language of the many paintings to which he had devoted his life. The book consists of twelve years of research into those symbols & a wealth of information that has crossed his path.

About Dr. William N. Brown
1.Those who are married -- in healthy marriages can step forward and become trained to act as mentor (teacher/example) couples for others. 2.We can broadcast the good things about our marriages loudly and not join in at the office water fountain joking about our spouses being burdens or telling the proverbial in-law problems. 3.Ministers, rabbis, imams and priests can sign a Marriage Covenant for strengthening marriage and family. By signing this such an agreement, religious leaders and others who perform wedding ceremonies, can take a stand saying that they will only perform weddings if the couple gets at least 10-12 hours of premarital education or counseling before the wedding; they also agree to support these couples by providing or referring the couple to resources where they can get healthy relationship skills. 4.Community agencies can provide Healthy Relationship, Parenting and Family workshops; 5.Family and friends can give newlyweds or those celebrating their anniversaries the gift of a session with trained marriage educators or they can give the gift of a “couple retreat”. 6.We can persuade couples to get premarital skill-building training before marriage. 7.We can encourage cohabiting couples, especially those with children, to get relationship skills training so that they can get married in a healthy, lasting union. There are many more things to be done. The above is just a list to get us started. Contact Dasi-Ziyad Family Institute to see what you can do. Remember that “We can’t all do great things. But we can all do small things in great ways.” *************************

The Chameleon Project
The largest project on Earth to assist the spirit of humanity
The Chameleon Project is a world destination center, featuring beautiful gardens of flowering plants and geometric shapes. It is a green project promoting people’s unique and magical connection to nature. Founder, Rod BearCloud Berry of Sedona AZ is the overseer of this “Oasis for Humanity”. The unique landscaping consists of an array of scenic, roving floral and plant gardens, mingling with displays of amazing waterfalls, ponds and water gardens. It is housed beneath an incredible glass domed structure, covering 52 acres. At its center is a glass pyramid, which at ground level is13 acres, reaching an altitude of 481 feet, making this unified structure a massive conservatory to one of the most unique and largest structures on earth. The Chameleon Project gets its name because like the chameleon, the gardens in this “Oasis for Humanity” perpetually shift in color. The Chameleon responds to its environment and when Spirit so calls, might try to change to the color of a blowing leaf. In the Native American ways of understanding the Earth, flowers and plants are seen as possessing the ability to heighten the Spirit in all people through their color, smell, feeling and visual display of symmetry and beauty. It has long been understood by ancient cultures that flower essences carry with them connections important for all people. Chameleons also possess advanced ability of sight, being able to see 360 degrees, reminding us of our own abilities of special vision, as one ponders the beauty of the gardens in the form of color. This World class destination will feature:- Architectural Wonder (insert photo of pyramid/dome structure) - Sacred Geometric Gardens - Art Galleries - Restaurants and Activity Centers - Library of the Universe - Timeshare Housing - Membership Program This garden oasis is an Arizona 501-(c)-3, non-profit organization, operating under environmentally green standards and is a gathering place to assist the peoples of the world in restoring harmony to our planet. The project is designed to educate humanity to the issues facing us as a people and to create solutions that incorporate ancient philosophy and indigenous wisdom. The gardens welcome people to journey through a universe of geometrical environmental art and leading edge architecture, promoting a philosophical and higher conceptual understanding of mathematics, symbols, science, and their relationship to ourselves and the Earth. The entire facility provides a place to revitalize and rekindle kinship with nature and will be host to an exceptional public Library of the Universe. Symbols designed throughout the Chameleon Project encourage an awareness of the commonalities and innate qualities existing between all peoples of the Earth. We are all related. The Chameleon Project is establishing an Adopt a Chameleon fund raising campaign to kick off development phase one for the project. BearCloud envisions that, “Together, we can create the most beautiful place on Earth. I am in gratitude to the thousands of supporters who have kept this vision in their hearts”. You may adopt a chameleon sculpture at the special Olympic rate by visiting http://www.Chameleon-Project.org. About BearCloud-Bearcloud began his journey on this Earthmother spending a great deal of time outdoors, connecting with the elements of nature. At the age of five, he began drawing and by twelve he was painting. Around 1980, he went through a Bearcloud series of ceremonies that would last four years, a fiftytwo moon cycle. The ceremonies were difficult and challenging and pushed his limits. When he was complete, he began painting the spiritual visions that he had become so accustomed to. Each of his paintings carried a spiritual essence that many onlookers seemed to recognize. In the mid 80’s, many of Bearcloud’s visions took him deeper into ceremony, as he began to expand his vision to universal levels. He knew the symbols he was gifted in visions, were of an ancient origin and they inspired him on his spiritual journey. He began publishing articles in 1998 about how these symbols interrelate with the Native American spiritual path and many others around our planet. He began to travel to England to do a series of lectures and presentations about their importance. He traveled the world to speak to spiritual elders in regard to these symbols. He published a series of videos on the topic followed by his first book, 7 Fires. The vision of the Chameleon Project first began about 7 years ago. Bearcloud explained he had watched a television program with a hardhitting news report about injustices inflicted by our system. Soon after, Bearcloud had a vision about creating a garden, or oasis, for people. Within the garden was a maze of walkways that lead into an enclosed, very unique garden with sacred symbols that had been created in flowers. Bearcloud had seen these same symbols in the Starglyphs, the phenomenon commonly called crop circles. The rest will be history. www.bearcloudgallery.com see p. 24 for one of Bear Cloud’s beautiful works.

In the last century their had been virtually no significant advancements in microbial protection for the last 40 years and needless to say the problems in both Germ control and mold control only got worse. Their are over 1400 different products claiming various abilities to kill mold and germs all using a few base formulas, quantinary ammonia, phenols, gluterahdihides, alholhol. The EPA established a new catagory for a special group of products called organo siline, which is a non chemical kill based on Nano Technology, it mechanically kills mold and germs based on a jagged surface that disrupts cell growth. this technology has become the basis for modern day germ and mold abatement world wide and it is totally non toxic. The other significant factor is photocataylitic air purification based upon light and reaction it produces hydroxil and peroxides radicals that clean the air of VOC’s and reduces airborn mold and germs through oxidative processes. These two technologys along with established protocols for implementation are changing the way the world deals with cross contamination and Indoor Air Quality.

“Rounding the Circle of Love.. Growing Up as She Grows Old” by Harriet Tramer
When I considered writing a review of Harriet’s book I realized that itwould be much better if I would simply share her message from theIntroduction of the book. The following will better express the message of this most wonderful book. Harriet begins by saying....”How did I happen to write this book?” That is a good question & one I certainly cannot answer in 25 words or less. But I will try to give you an abbreviated version that covers the major points. When you keep an elder in her home, she receives more personalized care than might otherwise be the case. Her world can be adapted to meet her needs in ways that might not be possible within an institutionalized setting. You set the budget, so you can economize whenever possible. Andbecause it offers these obvious advantages residential care has become a national trend.Yet, people who attempt making residential care work for their loved oneoften find themselves mired in more challenges...social, medical, financial than they had ever anticipated. And there is little margin for error, as any missteps they make-

Natural Health News/Ideas
Can you imagine living for more than 150 years? How about 250 years? Why not 500 years?
If you could, would you? These questions have plagued me much of my lifetime, and perhaps they have preyed upon you, too. Several years ago my search began for the answers. One serendipitous day, to my utter surprise, the people with the answers came into full view. They not only knew how to extend their lives, but were actually living well beyond 150 years. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ My preference for learning new skills by example is easy to admit, for the ‘monkey-see, monkey-do’ method brings involvement and instant recall. (Sitting in a classroom or doggedly reading a book presents little excitement or retention.) So, such was the method used years ago to improve my quality of life, at which time I set about following the advice of those whom I felt were the most astute health professionals: regular checkups, yearly vaccinations, a healthy diet and exercise as rigorous and often as would fit into my busy day. In a sense, modeling their lifestyles in an effort to extend my years became my way of life, all the while anxiously awaiting the golden years when retirement would become a reality. The Goal: Collecting my pension and relaxing comfortably by some large body of water. And then it happened! A friend handed me a cassette tape -Dead Doctors Don’t Lie - by Dr. Joel Wallach. From that day forward, my life was forever changed. A veterinarianturned-naturopath, Dr. Wallach became well-known for attributing many of today’s diseases to mineral and vitamin deficiencies. His tape made a sound case: many health professionals - including large numbers of doctors - live shorter lives than the average person. Clarity entered my consciousness: health professionals are not necessarily good examples to follow. It was difficult to grasp the idea that life could be extended by avoiding the daily routine my doctor was preaching. My decision, however, came swiftly: I was to begin my search for the people who DID live longer, healthier lives - and to learn their secrets of longevity. The idea of extending our lives is not new. Several articles and books by Dr. Aubrey De Grey, a biologist, and Dr. Leonid A. Gavrilov, a prominent research scientist, suggest the lengthening of our life span past 120 years is now not only possible, but physical immortality is also within our reach. Their theories of eating a healthy diet with plenty of exercise is good advice, but ‘monkey-see, monkey-do’ people like me need a solid representation after which to pattern our lifestyles. My search then began for the longest-living person alive - today. Not only was I to find one of the oldest people in the world, but my goal was further to find one practicing a healthy lifestyle. It would be necessary, of course, once the person was found, to do my best in striking up a friendship which would evolve into a trusting relationship - trusting enough so this person would be willing to share with me how he (or she) lived, what he (or she) ate - and how he or she had survived for so many years. With everything in my power, I would then begin to model my life closely to that ideal. Using some advanced research techniques, I began to find people who are alive today, living past 150 years. Quite a few appear to have lived for more than 250 - and some even 500 - years. All seem to have blended into society as typical senior citizens. It took me awhile to finally locate and make contact with a gentleman - one of the living ‘immortals’ - to learn his secrets of longevity. He was reluctant at first, but after much persistence, agreed to a meeting in a park near his home. Our paths finally crossed. Meeting him was one of the most incredible moments of my life. They say words constitute only nine percent of our communication. When we finally met, though he said very little, it was obvious to me this was the man I had been seeking. His face, his gestures and his demeanor clearly suggested he had been living for more than a century. As he quietly shared his essence and experience, I soon realized he had seen nearly 2,800 years of life through his eyes. He told me about his incredible life and how he had survived so many generations. The information he gave me was quite detailed, but I will summarize it the best I can. His motto is quite simple: Live life to its fullest everyday and don’t sweat the small stuff. To him, death is a choice, not a predetermined event. He focuses each day on living life rather than preparing for death. He says he notices too many people are so focused on death they forget to live their lives. His daily rituals are equally simple. He lives his life in moderation with almost no stress. He walks everywhere he can and eats as little as possible (usually freshly prepared food) three times a day. He drinks three glasses of water every day and finishes his day with a glass of fine wine. All of these lifestyle choices are common sense and should already be part of our lives. However, this man had another practice I feel is important. He believes it is imperative to share at least one meal a day with another person. It is his belief that while our bodies need food each day to sustain our life, our souls need a daily dose of another’s spirit to truly survive. He believes living a life of total solitude will lead to certain death. While it may be impossible for me to prove scientifically that this gentleman has experienced nearly 2,800 years of life, I can most certainly share his memories. More importantly, I can share his secrets to a long and healthy life. To those who say you cannot live your life to the fullest, for as long as you desire, tell them this old Chinese Proverb: A person who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the man doing it. www.secrets-of-an-immortal.com

Maharishi Ayurveda—Reviving the Long Lost Secrets of Longevity & Rejuvenation in Our Modern Age:
While Ayurvedic treatments and herbs are a hot trend in today’s spa industry, not all of them are the same, or equally safe and effective… Are your Ayurvedic supplements processed using safe and rigorous natural methods? Is your spa therapist practicing authentic Ayurveda?
Got pain? Pop a pill. It’s a reaction to pain that comes almost automatically for most people but there are alternatives to those over the counter pain killers. And whether you use nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) periodically or chronically, you do want to be careful not to overdo it. Numerous clinical studies have found that long term exposure to NSAIDS can lead to a breakdown of the stomach lining which can leave it susceptible to ulcers, it strains the liver and the kidneys, it has been linked to an increased risk of heart attacks and other cardiovascular problems, and can also cause a myriad of sideeffects (the most ironic of which is headaches). Naturopaths believe that eliminating these from your pain management practice is beneficial to your overall health.
Introducing the Golden Standard of Ayurvedic Effectiveness, Purity and Safety: Vedic So, what are you supposed to do Authenticity when you’ve got that burning
Maharishi Ayurveda is the result of over 50 years of careful research and restoration of the original ancient science of Ayurveda. This was accomplished by a team of hundreds of leading Ayurvedic physicians under the guidance of the greatest Vedic scholar of our time, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Previously scattered and often misinterpreted aspects of this precious science of life (the literal meaning of Ayurveda) have been revived for the first time in our modern age under a new name: Maharishi Ayurveda (MAV). MAV does not compromise the original Ayurvedic methods described in the classical Vedic texts; it doesn’t cut corners or dilute the knowledge to speed up production of herbal formulas; or simplify labor-intensive treatments. The government of India’s leading authorities on Ayurveda, the All-India Ayurvedic Congress, which consists of more than 300,000 Ayurvedic physicians or vaidyas, has acknowledged Maharishi Ayurveda®(MAV) for its authenticity and great contributions to global health-care. The MAV spas and MAV herbal product manufacturers continue to receive guidance from the council of Vaidyas, through Ayurvedic experts from India who refer to the original classic texts in verifying every step of every procedure in both treatment modalities and herbal preparations. Maximum purity equals maximum effectiveness resulting from these highest standards. The world-renowned reputation of The Raj MAV Spa in America’s heartland demonstrates these highest standards. The Key to Maintaining Youthfulness and Radiant Health: The ultimate purpose of Maharishi Ayurveda has always been to reconnect life (Ayu) to the Veda--- the laws of nature at the basis of mind and body that support the balanced functioning of both. When this balance is achieved, the individual experiences a state of inner harmony and peace, a state of unity with the uni-verse, also known as enlightenment. There is no room for disorder or dis-ease in this state. The Most Effective Stress-relief Program in the World: Not all forms of meditation are alike. As an integral part of the therapeutic approaches of Maharishi Ayurveda to purify and restore balance in mind and body, the Transcendental Meditation® technique (TM) plays an important role. Purifying the mind-body from the non-physical approach at the level of consciousness--the basis of the physical body--enhances the physical detoxification and nourishing approaches of Maharishi Ayurveda. In fact the two are mutually beneficial and help maintain life in a state of balance in accord with the laws of Nature; supporting health and longevity. (Photo of Mel Sourbeck meditating in chair )—90% of all diseases are stress related,,, TM is verified by over 600 rigorous scientific research studies performed at universities and institutions all over the world. TM is therefore prescribed by doctors throughout the world for its many health benefits. Maharishi Ayurveda is recognized by the National Institutes of Health (USA) for its scientifically validated benefits and by All India’s Ayurvedic Council for its Vedic authenticity, Maharishi Ayurveda represents the Golden Standard of Ayurveda today in its global leadership role.

pain in your legs or arms after a big workout, or that shooting pain in your back from a long-term injury? Perhaps you are recovering from surgery or suffering from arthritis - how are you supposed to get relief without popping pills? First we have to understand what is causing the pain. Most pain is caused by inflammation which slows circulation in the lymphatic system. That, in turn, leads to further inflammation. To naturally decrease inflammation, you need to focus on improving the circulation of white blood cells and keeping the lymphatic system moving. Thermoflow is an all-nature pain relief product (available at Mark’s Pharmacy in Vancouver or online at Thermoflow-health.com) that does just that. They call it “pain care you wear” and you literally wear it over the area that you have pain. Thermoflow products have microscopic ceramic particles woven into the thread of the fabric. This reflects the body’s far infrared energy back into the body to reduce swelling, increase circulation and alleviate pain. Even without pain, pain experts recommend wearing Thermoflow to keep inflammation in check, before it can register as pain. So next time you come back from the gym with muscle pain don’t reach for the NSAIDS (which studies have shown actually decrease muscle growth) and slip on some Thermoflow bike shorts, or arm bands. If it’s a headache, fight it with a headband or if the aches and pains have settled in all over; cover up with the longjohns and the long sleeve shirt.

cont. from pg 1 Dr GoodCarb are superfoods? Well for starters, they are foods that provide health benefits which go well beyond basic nutrition, giving your body a youthful vigor and disease –fighting power. Sorry superfoods won’t give you the power to leap tall buildings, run faster than a speeding bullet or make you than a locomotive. But they will help boost your immune system, prevent heart disease, and improve your sex drive, fight fatigue and much more. S u perfoods stand much taller than the typical foods you know are good for you. Almost every superfood is found in the plant kingdom. There are few exceptions, such as coldwater fish that provide healthy omega-3 oils to squelch inflammation and reduce the risk of heart disease; or probiotics, the beneficial bacteria that boost our immune system and maintain health in the digestive tract. A little over 10 years ago, researchers began to uncover a virtual goldmine of disease-fighting compounds called phytochemical (naturally occurring plant chemicals) in fruits and vegetables. Phytochemicals include cancer fighting lycopene in tomatoes and lutein in spinach, which shows great promise for preventing cataracts and macular degeneration. So, mom was right all along – we should be eating our fruits and vegetables every day. But new research is shifting the spotlight to a whole new generation of superfoods your mom probably never even heard about. Let me explain by introducing you to the humble broccoli plant. Broccoli evokes a lot of groans at the dinner table in most American households. Yet despite the resistance to broccoli, scientists continue to find more reasons why we should eat it often. For starters, broccoli is rich in vitamin C, folic acid, calcium and fiber. More importantly, researchers at Johns Hopkins University discovered a compound in broccoli called sulphuraphane. These scientists discovered that his extraordinary compound not only kills H. pylori, a bacterium that causes ulcers, but also is a powerful anticancer compound. Considering how new research has found a possible link between H. pylori and Alzheimer’s and heart disease, broccoli is beginning to look more like a medicine –one without side effects or an insurance copayment – than a food .It appears that nutrition is going back to the future; in the fifth, Hippocrates said “let food be your medicine and medicine be your food.” As good as broccoli is for our health broccoli sprouts are even better. Here’s why: Dr. John Talalay, one of the leading researchers at John Hopkins investigating the benefits of broccoli sprouts has up to 100 times more sulphuraphane than the mature broccoli plant. Quite impressive, don’t you think? Dr.Talalay has demonstrated that 1 ounce of broccoli sprouts has as much of the cancer fighting compounds as 1 ¼ pounds of garden-variety broccoli. That will certainly save you a lot of chewing. The nutritional profile of broccoli sprouts is impressive. However, all sprouted seeds and young cereal grasses are chock-full of stored nutrition and recuperative powers. Dr. Barry Mack at the University of Pennsylvania found that sprouted seeds have an average vitamin increase of more than 500 percent. There’s a lot of energy stored up inside sprouts and the young shoot s of sprouted grasses. For example, wheat grass and barley grass sprouts contain over five times more iron than spinach, 13 times more of the antioxidant betacarotene than carrots, and 55 times more vitamin C than apples. Incidentally, wheat grass and barley grass are gluten-free, which makes them safe for individuals who have gluten allergies or sensitivities. Green foods, like wheat grass and barley grass, capture the sun’s power to produce chlorophyll – the green pigment in plants and the source of human life. Nutritionists agree that the more green foods we can eat, the better. That’s why spirulina and chlorella, two nutrient –dense green superfoods, should be included in your diet for optimal health. Both spirulina and chlorella boost the immune system. Spirulina is 65 percent protein by weight. Chlorella is the richest source of chlorophyll on the planet. Can you see why superfoods are one of the hottest current research and public interest topics? So, by all means, continue to eat whole wheat bread or barley soup; these whole grains are good for you. But as you can see, eating wheat or barley sprouts is even better for you and goes way beyond basic nutrition. It’s almost hard to believe that there is that much nutrition in such a tiny package isn’t it? If you think about it, it makes perfect sense. When a farmer plants a tiny little seed of broccoli, wheat barley or any other seed in the ground, in just a few short days the seed has to muster up enough energy to push its way up through the soil and burst out into the sunlight on its way to becoming a mature plant. It takes a lot of energy to do that. That’s why I tell my patients that if you want to have as much energy as you did when you were a kid (only this time, with much better judgment), be sure you take your daily dose of superfoods. Take it from Paracelsus, the father of pharmacology:”All that mankind needs for good health and healing is provided in nature the challenge to science is to find it.” Scientist have now discovered more than 4,000 compounds in plants that reduce inflammation, stimulate growth and repair cells, tissues and organs, as well as detoxify or neutralize cancer- causing chemicals in our industrialized world.( You can visit www.biovalidity.com for current research on 250 of them) That is why the national cancer institute (NCI) currently has the “designer foods” project underway. According to Dr. Herbert Pierson, a toxicologist at NCL, the project is seeking to take advantage of the cancer- fighting potential in our diet by creating foods enriched with health- promoting substances already found naturally in many fruits, vegetables, grains, herbs and spices. But don’t hold your breath- it may take years before their findings are reported. Superfoods are nature’s “Designer foods,” and they’re available now. They contain a whopping dose of these health-promoting compounds. They also have a high concentration of protein, essential fats, vitamins, minerals and trace minerals - all contained in one tiny package. Superfoods are very low in calories, yet are nutrient - dense. Consequently, the curb food cravings and are a perfect weight-loss tool. Most importantly, superfoods pack a powerful, knock – out punch to free radicals – unstable and harmful molecules generated from our environment – before they can cause damage to our body cells, tissues and organs. Free radicals are generated from our normal body metabolism, but excess amounts stem from pollution in our air, water and food (stress medications, fried foods, cigarettes smoke etc.) Antioxidants mop up free radicals and render them harmless. Superfoods con-
tain mega doses of antioxidants that are primarily stored in the plant pigments, which give each plant its distinctive color. These pigments possess potent antioxidants with health benefits that help our body systems work more efficiently and avoid disease. Interestingly, some of the most promising superfoods have been discovered by studying ancient beliefs about indigenous plants from around the world. These ancient foods are now getting the full attention of modern research scientist. For example acai berries (pronounced ah-sah-e) a purple berry from the rainforest of Brazil, are one of the world’s richest sources of a group of antioxidants called anthocyanins. Scientist have demonstrated anthocyanins’ broad spectrum of cancer - fighting properties. The purple power in acai berries also shows great promise in fighting inflammation, increasing sex drive and protecting the brain from free-radical damage. Turmeric, a traditional spice of Indian and Mediterranean cuisine, contains a plant compound called curcumin, which gives this spice its intense yellow color. Research suggests that curcumin has anti inflammatory properties equal to cortisone; lowers cholesterol while protecting the liver (in contrast to cholesterol-lowering drugs); prevents blood clotting and is a powerful anticancer agent. One of the newest superfoods is the mangosteen fruit, an exotic Asian fruit with a deep purple color. Dr. Douglas Kinghorn and his team of scientist at Ohio State University have found that “the antioxidants in mangosteen are incredibly potent.” Dr. Kinghorn says, “If you drink a small amount of mangosteen juice, it will have a positive effect in terms of cancer protection.” Mangosteen contains xanthones, powerful antioxidants that combat inflammation and free radicals. Goji berries, another rising superfood, are grown in the nutrient-rich soil of the Himalayas and have been used for thousands of years as a food and a medicine. Dr. Perricone, author of The Perricone Prescription, says that goji berries may be the only food that stimulates the production of human growth hormone, the “anti-aging hormone” Pomegranate the ancient fruit mentioned in Greek mythology, the Bible and the Koran, may have its origins n the ancient world, but modern science is now extolling its miraculous virtues. Scientist a the Rambam Medical Center in Israel have demonstrated that the sugars found in pomegranate juice protect against the hardening of the arteries – a major cause of diabetes and heart disease. And there’s a lot of good science that touts pomegranates’ protective benefit against cancer, particularly prostate cancer. Milk thistle is a remarkable plant that has been used for thousands of years as a food and medicine. Modern research has proven that the potent antioxidants silymarin in milk thistle is a powerful liver protector against toxins in the environment. Research has demonstrated that milk thistle and its constituents are able to regenerate the liver by producing new liver cells. New and exciting research indicates that milk thistle may be helpful in treating neurological disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease. Smita Kittur, MD, reporting at the 2001 Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuroscience, said ”Surprisingly, we found that milk thistle extract not only helped the nerve cells to grow more neurites [branches of nerves cells necessary for their normal function and that aid in the regeneration of new cells, but it also kept the nerve cells alive longer.” Sea vegetables like dulse and Dunaliello salinoare are superfoods from the sea and are rich sources of minerals. In fact, seaweed contains all the minerals found in human blood, as well as other bioactive compounds that lower cholesterol, reduce blood pressure and have antioxidants activity.

take advantage of this superfood. Green tea and white tea have been popular beverages in the Asian diet for thousands of years. They contain catechins and other polyphenois that are powerful antioxidants against cancer, heart disease and strokes. “White tea and green tea may provide some of the same benefits as NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), without their adverse side effects,” says Gayle Orner, PhD, a toxicologist at the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University. Scientists are discovering endless combinations of antioxidants in whole foods that combat different types of free radicals inside and outside the body. That is why we’re experiencing a major shift away from single-nutrient antioxidants (vitamin supplements) and back to whole-food supplementation. The take-home message is this: the number-one antidote to free radicals, along with the disease and accelerated aging they cause, is a wide variety of multi-colored fruits and vegetables, plus whole grains, nuts and seeds. Second, take out an insurance policy. Eating superfoods every day may be the best health insurance you can get to prevent cancer, protect blood vessels and heart, boost the immune system, and fight the ravages of aging. That’s why many chiropractors recommend that their patients take a superfood supplement every day. Today’s food is tomorrow’s prescription. courtesy www.drgoodcarb.com see ad p 13
7 Simple Ways to Manage Stress and Control Anxiety Stress -Anxiety
While most of us bemoan our fast-paced lives and say we want to return to quieter times, the fact is that the tempo of modern life shows few signs of slowing down. In order to keep up, we must continually strive to adapt. Stress is usually defined as what happens when the demands on your body exceed its ability to cope. Our bodies are well-programmed to deal with stress events, via the biological “fight or flight” reaction. Problems arise, when stress occurs in a repeated, or chronic, pattern. When levels of naturally-produced stress hormones remain elevated over a prolonged period of time, they begin to take a toll on several of the body’s key systems. The results can be heart attacks, high blood pressure, inflammatory diseases, IBS, digestion problems, headaches, fatigue, insomnia, pain, cancer, allergies, and psychological disorders. In fact studies show that over 80% of all doctors visits are due to stress. So, what’s the solution? Avoid stress altogether? There are so many different causes of stress that it’s hardly possible to avoid it. The solution lies in learning how to manage stress. *Learning Relaxation /Meditation *Prayer *Massage *Think Positively *Exercise *Practice Gratitude *Natural Herbal Remedies For centuries, herbal practitioners have used nature’s herbs to calm nerves and uplift a “blue” mood. Today, these therapies from the past are offering many a gentle way to take the “edge” off without prescription medications.

Vegetarian Diets for Children: Right from the Start
DSHEA TURNED 15 LAST FALL
FDA is incapable of acting on behalf of Americans’ health given that it is controlled by special pharmaceutical interests that spend approximately $6 million per day lobbying Congress and the FDA. Scott Tips, JD, Editor of Health Freedom News President and Legal Counsel for NHF www.thenhf.com In the United States, the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) celebrated its 15th anniversary last Fall. Passed unanimously by the U.S. Congress in 1994, DSHEA took away the arbitrary powers of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which previously had been able to declare, e.g.,vitamin formulas subject to the harsh food-additive approval procedure if a manufacturer simply combined one vitamin with another and then tried to sell it in the same capsule. Known for its medieval view of medicine and for being fanatically protective of the medical orthodoxy and monopoly, the FDA has never psychologically gotten over the loss of its arbitrary powers and has continually whined (along with the mainstream press) about how the supplement industry is “unregulated.” This, as we all know, is an outright lie given that the FDA still has the power to act both civilly and criminally against adulterated and misbranded products just as it did with ephedra and one form of Vitamin B6. Dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st Century, the FDA has however continued to resist the sweep of society’s acceptance of alternative views on health and nutrition. In fact, this failure proves what the Federation has been saying for decades, that the FDA is incapable of acting on behalf of Americans’ health given that it is controlled by special pharmaceutical interests that spend approximately $6 million per day lobbying Congress and the FDA. The best move that Congress could make would be to strip the FDA of many of its powers and most of its budget. Health in America would dramatically improve as a result. Canada would almost certainly have a similar experience in its improvement in health if the same down-sizing occurred with Health Canada. Unfortunately, though, in the wake of DSHEA’s passage, some of its biggest supporters in the health-food industry have realized that DSHEA unleashed so much innovation in the form of some 1,000 new products every year that it has created competition from small- and medium-sized firms! So, the larger industry members have acted together in the time-honored American tradition to restrict or even eliminate the competition by supporting the passage of restrictive and expensive new regulations that fall more heavily upon these smaller companies than upon themselves. These are the new Adverse Event Reporting (AER) and Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) regulations that require heavy recordkeeping and employment of consultants, lawyers, and bookkeepers. This was - of course - done in the name of “consumer protection” from “dangerous supplements” but the truth is that supplements are already incredibly safe - so much so that a consumer is more likely to die from a bee sting or a fall from a horse than from taking dietary supplements! So while we in the United States celebrate DSHEA’s 15th anniversary, we need to remain vigilant to all of the many ways in which our supposed allies and others can act to either eliminate DSHEA directly, indirectly, or simply be whittling away at it bit by bit over time. And, in the same way that Americans canbenefit from Canadian experience in these matters, Canadianscan benefit from this experience with DSHEA and resist any and all attempts in Parliament (such as with the recent attempt to pass draconian legislation such as Bill C6) to take away any more of Canadians’ health freedoms.

www.pcrm.org Founded in 1985, the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) is a nonprofit organization that promotes preventive medicine, conducts clinical research, and encourages higher standards for ethics and effectiveness in research. Eating habits are set in early childhood. Choosing a vegetarian diet can give your child—and your whole family—the opportunity to learn to enjoy a variety of wonderful, nutritious foods. Children raised on fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes grow up to be slimmer and healthier and even live longer than their meat-eating friends. It is much easier to build a nutritious diet from plant foods than from animal products, which contain saturated fat, cholesterol, and other substances that growing children can do without. As for essential nutrients, plant foods are the preferred source because they provide sufficient energy and protein packaged with other health-promoting nutrients such as fiber, antioxidant vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals. Complete Nutrition for Children Vegetarian diets provide excellent nutrition for all stages of childhood, from birth through adolescence. Of course, an infant’s nutritional needs are best met by his or her mother’s breast milk. It’s nature’s way of boosting the baby’s immunity as well as his or her psychological well-being. Doctors recommend introducing solid foods in the middle of the first year of life. The best weaning foods are soft plant foods such as ground, cooked cereals, mashed fruits, and well-cooked vegetables. Given a chance, toddlers and young children usually enjoy a wide variety fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes— even more so if they are involved in the preparation. School-aged children are often curious about where their food comes from and delight in learning how to cook, visiting farmers’ markets, and gardening. Adolescents raised on a vegetarian diet often find they have an easy time maintaining a healthy weight and have fewer problems with acne, allergies, and gastrointestinal problems than their meat-eating peers. Some studies suggest that the growth of vegetarian children is more gradual than that of nonvegetarians—in other words, vegetarian children grow a bit more slowly at first, but they catch up later on. Final heights and weights for vegetarian children are comparable to those of meat-eating children. Interestingly, breast-fed babies also grow more slowly than bottle-fed babies. Somewhat less rapid growth during the early years is thought to decrease disease risk later in life. On the other hand, diets rich in animal protein, found in meat, eggs, and dairy products, appear to reduce the age of puberty, as shown in a 2000 study from the Harvard School of Public Health, which found that girls who consumed higher levels of animal protein compared to vegetable protein between 3 and 8 years of age went through menarche earlier. Nature may well have designed the human body to grow up more gradually, to reach puberty later, and to last longer than most people raised on omnivorous diets experience. In a 1980 study in Boston, researchers measured the IQs of vegetarian children. Some of the
The Importance of Anti-Aging Medicine By: Dr Robert M. Goldman MD, PhD, DO, FAASP (American Academy of Anti-Aging
Anti-aging medicine is a clinical specialty is founded on the application of advanced scientific and medical technologies for the early detection, prevention, treatment, and reversal of age-related dysfunction, disorders, and diseases. It is a healthcare model promoting innovative science and research to prolong the healthy lifespan in humans. As such, anti-aging medicine is based on principles of sound and responsible medical care that are consistent with those applied in other preventive health specialties. The phrase “anti-aging,” as such, relates to the application of advanced biomedical technologies focused on the early detection, prevention, and treatment of aging-related disease. In short, the goal of anti-aging medicine is not to merely prolong the total years of an individual’s life, but to ensure that those years are enjoyed in a productive and vital fashion. Anti-aging medicine is the following: • It is scientific. Anti-aging diagnostic and treatment practices are supported by scientific evidence and therefore cannot be branded as anecdotal. • It is evidence-based. Anti-aging medicine is based on an orderly process for acquiring data in order to formulate a scientific and objective assessment upon which effective treatment is assigned. • Is well-documented by peer-reviewed journals. As of this writing, the National Library of Medicine hosts more than 3,000 peer-reviewed articles on the subject of anti-aging medicine. The Anti-Aging Longevity Dividend, a strategic multi-faceted lifestyle featuring diet, exercise, and healthy habits, can help to achieve the younger, happier, stronger you. The benefits to longevity of multiple positive lifestyle choices have been validated in a study published by Rob van Dam, from the Harvard School of Public Health (Massachusetts, USA) and colleagues. The researchers analyzed data from 80,000 women nurses spanning two decades. Over the study period, 1,790 women died from heart disease and 4.527 from cancer. In analyzing the study participants’ records of diet, physical activity, alcohol consumption, weight, smoking, and disease history, the team determined 55% of the deaths could have been avoided if the women had never smoked, exercised regularly, eaten a healthy diet (low in red meat and trans fats), and main-
tained a healthy weight. Smoking was by far the factor to play the biggest role in premature deaths, with the team estimating that it was directly responsible for 28% of the deaths. [Rob M van Dam, Tricia Li, Donna Spiegelman, Oscar H Franco, Frank B Hu. “Combined impact of lifestyle factors on mortality: prospective cohort study in US women.” BMJ 2008;337:a1440; published 16 September 2008, doi:10.1136/ bmj.a1440.] Around the world, people are seeking medical guidance for ways to stay healthy, active, and vital well into their older years. As a result, the principles of the anti-aging lifestyle are gaining rapid and widespread acceptance as a framework for lifelong habits for healthy living. Simply put, anti-aging medicine is just good common sense in today’s world.

What is the Thyroid, Anyway?
courtesy Dr Keith Ungar, Center for Natural Medicine, Akron, OH. Dr Ungar’s new book Your Thyroid Chemistry Doesn’t Lie discovers how reliable functional testing can identify problems and promote lasting thyroid health through proper management. www.balanceyourchemistry.com E-mail us: firstname.lastname@example.org attn: Keith S. Ungar, D.C. One of the most important glands in our body, the thyroid has a hand in virtually every body system, which means that what might seem to be a problem with the thyroid may not be the result of a diseased thyroid gland at all. Any number of other endocrine glands, such as the adrenals could be the culprit, or, fluctuating blood sugar levels, or too much estrogen. To treat these different conditions, one must entertain healthy lifestyle changes, exercise and specific nutritional and herbal support based on one’s individual chemistry. The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland located in the front of the lower part of the neck. The two lobes on either side of your neck are connected by a small band of tissue called an isthmus. It is difficult to feel unless you are thin or have a growth or enlargement of the thyroid. Your thyroid gland produces hormones that ultimately fuel every cell of your body. These hormones are called thyroxine or “T4” and triiodothyronine or “T3”. Your thyroid provides your body with a kind of furnace or power source; without it you would feel very cold and sluggish. The hormones it secretes travel throughout the body and play an important role in your digestion, reproduction, body temperature, liver and numerous other body functions. The thyroid gland also produces calcitonin which helps regulate calcium levels in the blood and affect bone formation. This becomes important when we evaluate the function of the thyroid gland: we look at the calcium, potassium and selenium levels in your system as well as the calcium to potassium ratio in your hair analysis. An underactive or slow thyroid (hypothyroidism) means that vital cell functions are slowed down and your entire body suffers from a lack of much needed fuel and energy. When the thyroid gland becomes overactive, all the normal functions it affects go into overdrive (we call it hyperthyroidism) causing what can sometimes be a life-threatening condition. It is important to understand that nobody wakes up one day with hypothyroidism or even hyperthyroidism.

We’ve all heard it. The friend or family member who says, “Well, my doctor told me I ought to change my eating habits, but I never really got around to doing it.” Doing it is the crux of the matter. New research affirms that doing it does happen - and the results are remarkable - when people are given regular, individualized guidance from lifestyle- change professionals like registered dietitians, exercise physiologists, and psychologists. Yes, the very same professionals who are at the Pritikin Longevity Center. In the new research*, part of the ongoing Finnish Diabetes Prevention Study, scientists followed 522 middle-aged overweight men and women who had impaired glucose tolerance. Half of these pre-diabetics, the control group, were given standard care. At the study’s start, they received general advice, both written and oral, about diet and exercise. More vegetables, fruits, whole grains The other half, the intervention group, received regular personalized guidance from nutrition and exercise professionals over the course of three years. They were counseled in practical, easy-to-implement ways to lose at least 5% of their body fat by including more vegetables, fruits, and whole grains in their lives, and by choosing low-fat/nonfat daily foods and lean meat over fattier options. More exercise The intervention group was also given personalized exercise coaching. The goal: exercising at least 30 minutes every day. Reductions in metabolic syndrome The results? After 3.9 years, reported lead investigator Dr. Pirjo Ilanne-Parikka and colleagues, “we found a significant reduction in the prevalence of metabolic syndrome in the intervention group compared with the control group and in the prevalence of abdominal obesity.” The intervention group was four times more likely than the control group to see reductions in the metabolic syndrome, a cluster of diabetes risk factors that include high triglycerides, low HDL good cholesterol, high blood pressure, elevated fasting blood sugar, and abdominal obesity (a waist of 40 inches or more for men and 35 inches or more for women). Reversal of the metabolic syndrome would not only decrease the risk of diabetes but should also “reduce risk of cardiovascular disease in the long run,” concluded the authors.
Farmer cleared of ‘raw milk’ charges Court gives consumers access to unpasteurized products Posted: January 21, 2010 8:16 pm Eastern © 2010 WorldNetDaily
Natural foods advocates are claiming a victory today after a court ruling cleared a dairy farmer of a string of charges he faced because of the raw milk he sold to members of a cow-sharing consortium. According to natural foods blogger Kimberly Hartke, Michael Schmidt was found not guilty in a verdict that took a judge more than two hours to read. The judge “found that Michael had done his due diligence, developed a proper contract, and that everyone was informed,” Hartke reported. “The judge went on to say that Michael met a need for the people.” The case against the Ontario, Canada, dairy farmer hearkens back to similar disputes in the U.S. over the same issue.

“Type 2 diabetes is caused primarily by excessive calorie intake and fat storage, so it certainly makes sense that anything that reduces calorie intake and promotes the loss of body fat will reverse insulin resistance and lower blood sugar levels in those with pre- or Type 2 diabetes,” states Jay Kenney, PhD, Nutrition Research Specialist at Pritikin. “But why have your digestive tract mutilated and risk multiple long-term complications from the surgery, including nutritional deficiencies, when you can just follow the Pritikin Program, lose weight without hunger, and still reverse insulin resistance and Type 2 diabetes?” To be sure, a commitment to lifestyle changes like the Pritikin Program is no small task. But surgery is no easy solution either. After surgery, doctors routinely advise patients to make a complete change in lifestyle. Foods to be avoided include sugary foods, red meat, high-fat foods, high-fiber foods, and milk because they commonly provoke nausea, cramping, diarrhea, overall weakness and other nasty side effects. And because most forms of weight-loss surgery leave patients with a stomach the size of an egg, postsurgery life means very small meals, eaten very slowly and chewed thoroughly, for the rest of one’s life. Overeating may cause vomiting, expansion of the stomach pouch, weight gain (think Al Roker of NBC’s Today Show), or even rupture of the stomach. The fact is, the lifestyle changes required after weight-loss surgery are far more rigorous than Pritikin Program recommendations, observes Dr. Kenney. “A healthy diet like Pritikin allows you to enjoy a wide variety of foods like fruits, vegetables, beans, potatoes, corn, and whole grains like brown rice and wholewheat pasta, and you can eat them in large satisfying portions.” And the only side effect of Pritikin living is better health, better blood pressure, better cholesterol, freedom from angina pain and heart surgeries, and certainly, better diabetes control. It’s all good news. For diabetes control, in particular, the Pritikin Program is very good news. In a recent meta-analysis of 864 Type 2 diabetics who came to the Pritikin Longevity Center, 74% on oral agents left Pritikin three weeks later free of such medications, their blood sugars in normal ranges; and 44% on insulin left insulinfree. (Journal of Applied Physiology, 98: 3, 2005) The Pritikin Program has also proven extraordinarily effective in curbing a pre-diabetes condition, now epidemic in the U.S., called Metabolic Syndrome. In about 50% of men studied, the Pritikin Program reversed the clinical diagnosis of Metabolic Syndrome with three weeks. (Journal of Applied Physiology, 100: 1657, 2006) Among children with the Metabolic Syndrome, 100% no longer had the syndrome within two weeks of starting the Pritikin Program. (Metabolism Clinical and Experimental, 55: 871, 2006) Recommends Dr. Kenney: “Weight-loss surgery should be a last resort after all other options have been tried, and there are other – and much better – options. In my 22 years at Pritikin, I’ve seen hundreds of men and women lose 50 to 100 pounds and more just by exercising and following the Pritikin Eating Plan.” Even if you’ve tried Pritikin and struggled with it, try again. Come back for a refresher. There’s a wonderful Japanese proverb that says, “Fall down seven times, stand up eight.”Everyone struggles. But struggles do not mean failure. The only time you fail is when you stop trying. The eighth or ninth time you pull yourself up may be the time that you stay up.

The story of coffee has its beginnings in Ethiopia, the birthplace of the Arabica coffee plant
courtesy of Boresha
It is said that more than 1,000, years ago a lone goat shepherd and his flock came across a strange and mysterious plant growing upon a secluded and forgotten hillside in Ethiopia’s southwestern highlands. Boresha’s organic coffee beans are 100% Arabica. Arabica coffee is the earliest cultivated species of coffee tree, being grown for well over 1,000 years. It produces approximately 70% of the world’s coffee, and is dramatically superior in cup quality to the other principal commercial coffee species. All fine, specialty, and premium coffees come from Arabica coffee trees. Arabica coffee grows only in particular environments with adequate rainfall, temperate climates, good soil (often volcanic), sufficient altitude, and roughly between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn. Under the ideal conditions, it can take as many as seven years for the Arabica coffee plant to grow to its full size. After a few years, the plants begin to produce fruit, the seeds of which are the coffee beans. Our beans are cultivated in the rich soils of small farms located in the fertile, high mountain regions and moist lake areas of Africa. The coffees from this region are complex and have intense berry or floral aromas and have undertones of berries, citrus fruits and chocolate. Boresha coffee is naturally grown without the use of any artificial fertilizers, pesticides, or other chemical products. see ad p. 9.

Natural Health News/Ideas
New Hope for Sufferers of Chronic Pelvic Pain by Florene Carnicelli Johns, PT, MPC, SD
What is Chronic Pelvic Pain (CPP)? Chronic pelvic pain (CPP) may affect as many as 25% of women between the ages of 18 and 50. Although this condition is more often reported by women, men also experience chronic pelvic pain. CPP is any pelvic pain that lasts for more than six months. A precise definition of Chronic Pelvic Pain is not a simple one since the understanding of chronic pelvic pain is currently in transition. Those with CPP have found this frustrating and challenging often visiting several healthcare providers before being properly diagnosed and treated. In the past, the belief that this condition was “all in the head” prevailed among health care providers and patients but heightened awareness and understanding of the condition have changed this. At present, CPP can best be explained by describing its symptoms, the impact of these symptoms on quality of life and describing treatments that have been effective. Symptoms-Symptoms of chronic pelvic pain may or may not include sharp or severe pain but instead may present with some variation of discomfort, aching, burning, fullness, squeezing, tightness, sharp or dull sensation. These may appear in the genital, anal, bladder, tail bone, groin and low back as well as other areas. Reports of discomfort or relief when sitting and following bowel movements are common. Urinary symptoms include frequency, urgency, incontinence, hesitancy, burning and frequent night time urination. Sexual dysfunction may manifest as painful or impossible intercourse and absent or painful orgasm. Anxiety, depression and a feeling of helplessness prevail. Partner relational issues result from the condition and the condition magnifies existing issues. Sources and Causes of CPP-Sources of pelvic pain include the organs that reside in the abdominal cavity as well as the bones and connective tissue on the front and back of the trunk, lower extremities and all areas in and around the pelvis. Instances of trauma to the pelvic floor resulting from childbirth, accident, sexual intercourse, sexual abuse, surgery, irradiation as well as acute disease can contribute to CPP. Diagnosis-The first step is a detailed medical screening and diagnosis performed by a practitioner with a specialty in women’s health. Two major categories of pelvic pain exist: gynecological and non-gynecological. It is necessary to have a thorough examination in order to identity the problem and rule out infectious and neurological diseases. Screening for depression and anxiety disorders is also necessary. Treatment-Treatment of chronic pelvic pain must be multidisciplinary to be effective. A team approach is critical, whether the team is present in the same facility or exists as a referral network. It is important that the members of the team consult regularly. The team can include the physician, physician’s assistant, nurse practitioner, physical therapist, counselor and other providers involved in care. Be patient with your treatment as it may take 3-6 months to resolve. Medication including homeopathic preparations applied topically and by injection, bio-identical compounded hormones, sleep aides and others may be prescribed. A physical therapist specially trained in pelvic floor dysfunction can provide a detailed evaluation necessary to identify the soft tissue structures that are responsible for the pain and dysfunction. Treatment may consist of myofascial release, electrical stimulation, biofeedback, and other procedures to release the shortened structures and strengthen the weakened ones. Postural correction and therapeutic exercises are also used. Some patients find relief of pain with acupuncture and other alternative measures. Surgery should be a last resort since this may cause further restrictions of the connective tissue that may be contributing to the pain. Counseling by a psychotherapist trained in couples’ work and sex therapy is very important. Depression and anxiety must be addressed. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an effective approach in treating distant past trauma or more recent distress actually resulting from the chronic pelvic pain. Here the condition has become the trauma. Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is a valuable approach to assist the patient in dealing with chronic pain. Understanding that the condition is not “all in the mind” puts patients at ease and facilitates the healing process. Since the mind is a tool of the brain and it functions to create thoughts and feelings, it is a misconception that the mind and body are separate. Since mental functions are dependent upon a physical organ, the brain, the mind and body are one. Chronic pelvic pain is in the mind and the body and both should be addressed along with the spiritual belief system of the patient. If you are experiencing chronic pelvic pain, there is hope. Seek out a healthcare provider that has knowledge of CPP. Your gynecologist, urologist or urogynocologist may be good resources. Most large medical centers have a Women’s Health Center that may address CPP. More often there are nurse practitioners, physical therapists and counselors in your community that are specialized in diagnosing and treating CPP.

By Katie K. Bell-Courtesy of James Foy, Community Chiropractic, Cleveland, OH 216-361-9840 Ever heard of a runner’s high? Or have you stumbled upon a great idea while on the step machine at the gym? We all know that exercise can h e l p us lose weight, reduce the risk of heart disease, improve our blood pressure, energy levels and sleep patterns and reduce stress. But, you may not realize that all of your visits to the gym or the trail can also improve the signs of aging and boost your brain performance and overall mental health. James A. Blumenthal, Ph.D., and his colleagues surprised many people in 1999 when their study showed that regular exercise was as effective as antidepressant medications for patients with major depression. Newer study results, published in the January 2005 issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, looked at exercise alone in treating mild to moderate depression. The researchers studied adults aged 20 to 45, finding that depressive symptoms were reduced almost 50 percent in individuals who participated in 30-minute aerobic exercise sessions three to five times a week. These findings are comparable to results from studies in which patients with mild to moderate depression were treated with antidepressants or cognitive therapy. That’s an impressive track record for a non-invasive, nonchemical and cost-free treatment. For years researchers believed that endorphins were the primary
source of that feel-good sensation as a result of exercise. Endorphins are natural opiates similar to those found in morphine. However, because it is very difficult for those endorphins to cross the blood brain barrier, doctors are beginning to question this theory. Recent studies have discovered that exercise boosts activity in the brain’s frontal lobes and the hippocampus. This might explain why so many people believe they can think better after moving around a bit. Exercise is also responsible for increasing levels of three mood-enhancing chemicals, serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine, acting much like an antidepressant.

Notes/News Increasing your brand value and
equity as a leader.
Looking for Uplifting Businesses Opportunities?
Here are the 3 top ingredients to build the value of your brand and equity.
1) Are you clear on your brand position? A brand position is the promise you can deliver from the Unique Selling Proposition and the Unique Buying Proposition. The Unique Buying Proposition is more important in today’s economy. Here again, people don’t want to be sold to, as much as they want to buy. How can you deliver in the market with your product or service in a way it has never been served before? How do you stack up amongst your top 3 competitors? Go beyond the problem and solution, look at the aspiration of your customers. Who is your ideal customer; baby boomer, generation X and/or Y? What psycho-graphics (emotions and lifestyle) do they share and why? 2) Are your Touchpoints integrated? Touchpoints are needed to communicate and express the company’s brand identity to the customers mind to form the brand image. Touchpoints are a set of links to the most important brand’s core identity; the brand’s name, mark, tagline, colors and font. The Touchpoints are lead generators for sales, opportunity to strengthen the brand from its competition, build trust and loyalty with customers. Touchpoints include; brand icon, website, tradeshow booth, advertising, receptionist, signage, brochures, voicemails, emails, etc. Are all your Touchpoints integrated telling one consistent story or are they fragmented telling different stories and giving off different identities? Make sure all medias are integrated for power and strength. 3) What is your brand personality? A brand personality is a set of human characteristics such as gender, sex, age, values, attitude, emotions, lifestyle, habits, and economic class. It is used to build a relationship and bond between the brand’s personality link to the customer’s experience. It builds brand loyalty. A cigarette is a cigarette until it is associated to brand like the ruggedness of Marlboro, or the sexy and provocative look of Virginia Slims. Complete the following; if the brand spoke what would it say and what would it wear and why? What music would it listen to and why? Bio –As founder, president and CBO of Los Angeles-based HOW Creative® and Authentic Brand GuildTM, Howard A. Lim has been building Authentic Brands® for more than two decades.

I have been using “Shea Butter Secrets” shea butter for two years and I must say that I have become quite addicted to it. At first, I noticed that my skin became thicker, softer, and more “desirable” as I joked while describing the benefits to my friends. During my long bike rides, in the middle of the summer, shea butter protects my “private parts” from chaffing and exposed parts from sunburn. While trail running, I feel better protected from ticks, poison ivy and occasional scratches. With thicker application I found not to be as attractive to flying “wild life”, like bugs and mosquitoes. Shea Butter creates less hassle while applying if you first allow it to melt in your hand, (it naturally melts to body temperature). This also allows for extra time to spend with self massage. While swimming, especially in chlorinated water, shea butter protects my skin from irritation. It creates a natural barrier between me and the water. I can actually see the water beading on my skin when I come out of the water. During winter, when skin tends to be itchier, it provides a soothing barrier to the skin. When tanning, shea butter helps me achieve a golden tan. Clearly, the moisturizing and therapeutic values of Shea Butter Secrets shea butter, for me, cannot be disputed.

Jack F. Bukowski, MD, PhD is the Chief Scientific Officer for the Nutritional Science Research Institute (NSRI). Former Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School. Dr. Bukowski’s primary focus has been on a part of the immune system called the innate immune system, which makes people naturally resistant to disease Cheryl A. Rowe, PhD, Meri P. Nantz, BA, Jack F. Bukowski, MD, PhD, and Susan S. Percival, PhD Food Science and Human Nutrition Department, University of Florida (C.A.R., M.P.N., S.S.P.), Gainesville, Florida, Divison of Rheumatology, Allergy & Immunology, Department of Medicine, Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School (J.F.B.), Nutritional Science Research Institute (J.F.B.), Boston, Massachusetts INTRODUCTION For centuries, tea beverage has been linked to good health. Most studies have been observational, showing benefit in cardiovascular, anti-aging, neurodegenerative, anti-cancer, and bone areas [1,2]. Further, recent studies that call in to question the efficacy of zincbased nasal sprays and lozenges , and Echinacea  make new research into cold and flu more important. There is emerging evidence that components found in tea beverage may have anti-infective and anti-inflammatory effects. L-theanine, an amino acid found uniquely in tea, is catabolized to ethylamine, a molecule that specifically activates human T lymphocytes to proliferate and make interferon gamma, a powerful antimicrobial cytokine [9,10]. Subjects who drank six cups of tea per day had up to a 15-fold increase in interferon gamma production in as little as one week, when their peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) were exposed to bacteria . This monumental discovery led to a renowned study, published in 2003, proving that drinking five to six cups per day of tea boosts, by 500 to 1500%, the ability of an innate immune system component to make interferon gamma. Interferon gamma enables the elimination of virus, bacteria, and parasites that cause illness such as colds, flu, pneumonia, and diarrhea, and have also been found to kill cancer cells. LTheanine has not been used in Green Tea formulas except for Immune Guard Journal of the American College of Nutrition, Vol. 26 No. 5, 445–452 (2007) Published by the American College of Nutrition (see pg 17 for details about a supplement that was developed from the study.)

Skin Secrets courtesy
A good cleansing system (which consists of a cleanser, scrub and toner) sets the PH of the skin. Another important factor is the skin moisturizing system which should consist of a facial moisturizer, a sunscreen, and an eye and throat cream. I recommend using minimal make-up so it does not clog and dry out the pores. You should be using Vitamin C and other serums to nourish and oxidate the cells in the lower layers of the epidermis in order to accelerate the reproduction of healthier skin cells.

Hip/Hope - the Salvation
By Kwaku, LC Woods, R.N, M.D.-In the beginning was the beat, and it was good. It was funky and it was sublime. It spawned the reach of lyrics and they blended to form a song. The song was sung and the beat pounded the mind and moved the body and soul. The lyric searched for meaning and became confused. What was lost was the message and the method, what remained was the ability to influence the youth of our nation and to direct both its mind and spirit. We now meet to revise that direction and regain those messages that are not only desired but sorely needed, now, more than ever. As such we present the Laws of Hip/Hope, a manifesto for the rebirth of an art form that never truly died, but is sick as hell right now.

Winner” and “loser” are two aspects of one quality: LOVE. In agreed
upon measurements they experience their roles: winner and loser. In essences of life, they share equality in service, equal worth, fleeting experiences, lessons of humility, potential errors in defining self worth and the essence LOVE. Looking into the realm of being “winner” or “loser”, many forces are at play. To compete, we enter into something that attracts, compels, feeds, and motivates us. All of this comes from a type of love. We spend hours in discipline if the activity is one which entrances us into complete present time and great devotion: two qualities of soul expressing love through world.
Inner Body Balance By Shirley MacLaine
The human body is very intelligent, and I am learning to rely more and more on its intelligence rather than on chemicals. If I am properly alkaline, I feel, stronger, more energetic and my mind functions better. I also seem to have more memory. When I am acidic, my immune system doesn’t function as well, my energy is low and my mind can’t focus properly. I have found that things like lack of exercise, lack of hydration, lack of adequate sleep, stress, and poor food choices feed the acidic levels of the body. The inner terrain balance depends on many things. But probably the most important is diet. In making a study of which foods were more alkaline in the body and which were acidic, I was stunned. For Example, all citrus fruits and juices turn alkaline in the system even though they are acidic when we eat or drink them. Meat, fish, fowl and most animal products turn acidic. All cooked vegetables, except cooked tomatoes, are alkaline. So we should observe a diet that is 20 percent acidic and 80 percent alkaline. There are several resources for learning what can create an alkaline body but here are a few quick tips for days when you just can’t get your pH up. Make lemonade. As strange as it sounds, lemons alkalize the body. I prefer a cup of warm water with the juice of half a fresh lemon and teaspoon of organic honey. Make a pot of vegetable soup and enjoy a cup every hour until you feel your energy return. Have a banana instead of a candy bar. Bananas are naturally alkalizing and will not affect the glucose levels of the body as severely as sugar. Snack on dried fruits such as raisins, apricots and dates. You might want to mix the dried fruits with almonds, Brazil nuts, and walnuts, which will also help the body maintain alkalinity. Try to get ten minutes of morning sun every day. Research indicates that Vitamin D, which most of us don’t get an ample supply of anymore, helps the body store alkalizing nutrients. Take a moment, whether you are at work, in the office, or at play, to breathe and visualize. Inhale through the nose and exhale through the mouth. Keep your shoulders back and your back straight. Take each breath in slowly and exhale slowly. Visualize all of the acidic toxins being exhaled from your body. Most importantly alkalize by the foods you eat. Incorporate more fruits and vegetables in your daily regime and feel the changes in your body! Adapted from Sageing While Age-ing Visit Shirley MacLaine’s website: www.ShirleyMacLaine.com program yourself with a conscious choice reaction. Don’t beat yourself up. Instead, just work at it steadily. If you practice these five steps over six months, you will find that you will have much more peace in your everyday life. Like any other habit, it takes some discipline, motivation, and desire to practice until it begins to embed itself. However, the payoff in your life and in your relationships will be enormous.

Once we agree to compete, we face the paradigm of winner/loser. In this we are in service to others who will live through and with us whether we win or lose. We find ourselves in service to others via the act of full dedication to task. Our lives are not ours alone but for the sake of many. When we win we emanate feelings of of pride that others share. We motivate others to do their best. When we lose, we take on sad feelings of loss from many who see their own losses in us. We may lose in the grace of respect for our opponent. Winner and loser are equal in life path. Winning makes nobody better despite the images portrayed of a winner, historically. A winner’s role is challenging. When Michael Phelps took a puff of marijuana it became a global issue. Meanwhile, his peers all over the world, smoked or drank regularly while nobody noticed. The winner is asked to be super human which is impossible. Winners are sought out winning which they secretly knows to have nothing to do with deepest self worth and happiness. Meanwhile, the looser is forgotten, thus having to face self worth issues. In reality, both are people, going through life with virtues and weaknesses like everyone else, worthy of love and respect. Both have opportunities to discover their essence love beyond these roles. Both are prey to mistaking these roles as identity. Both face the reality of fleeting experiences. How fast the situation of being known as winner or loser comes and goes while the daily opportunities of life: sincerity, kindness, compassion, care, love, generosity are what really fill the heart of every person! Winner an loser may see through the game while giving fully to it. In this an awakening occurs. The playfulness of winning and losing is evident but the depth of LOVE that created this is more evident: mysterious LOVE allowing for the passage. LOVE may be called by different names in each religion or spiritual path and is at core one love: one energy of creation/creator. The dramatic play out of who wins and who loses, faced fully reveals that LOVE and equality are essences of both players. Fulfillment is present in each situation. Forgiveness and kindness that holds winner and loser is at play. Dr. Laurie Moore, LMFT, CHT 831-477-7007 Coaching and Therapy: Find Dr. Laurie in PsychologyToday.com under “Santa Cruz, CA”.

Five Steps to Everyday Peace-As a lawyer turned peacemaker I am often asked to provide simple steps for finding everyday peace. Although
conflict can be extremely complicated and chaotic, there are some simple ideas that can transform even the most difficult conflicts.
aware of what we are doing. This very fast, highly reactive response to conflict is an important protective device in physical danger. However, it gets us into deep trouble in social situations. Reactivity is a fundamental attribute of the human biology: the human brain cannot easily distinguish between a physical threat and a social threat at a preconscious level. It actually takes our brains about three quarters of a second to process the information before we are able to make a “rational choice” as opposed to a reactive decision. Often times, we become angry or insulted long before we can choose how we wish to respond. Given our innate reactivity, what can we do to respond to the everyday insults and disrespect that cause so many difficult conflicts to erupt and escalate? Here are my five steps to instant peacemaking: 1.Take ten minutes and write down 10 situations that annoy you the most. Pay special attention to those things your life partner, children, parents, friends, and work colleagues say or do that trigger you. 2.For each trigger, write
The fundamental problem in conflict is reactivity. By reactivity, I mean that reaction, trigger, or feeling that we have upon immediately being challenged, disrespected, insulted, or otherwise offended. We have all experienced someone pulling into a parking place in front of us during a busy holiday season or cutting us off on the freeway. These minor annoyances can often cause a brief spurt of intense anger with the usual one finger salute or appropriate salty language. In these situations, we are reacting pre-consciously. That is, we are acting before we are consciously
down your choices for a response, including an angry response. Typically, your responses will be to respond consciously in some way, ignore the trigger, or become angry. 3.Try to be aware the next time you are triggered. With some practice, you will be able to recognize triggers earlier and earlier as they occur. When you do become aware, see if you can make a conscious choice about a response. Something I do when I am triggered is to ask myself the question, “How do I choose to react right now?” Choose among the responses you identified in Step 2. By the way, being angry is an OK choice if you are conscious about choosing it. 4.Observe what happens to the situation after you have made your choice. What did you learn? Consider yourself doing well if you began to realize you were triggered, even if you were unable to make a conscious choice. 5.Failure is OK. We learn from our mistakes. This is a process of reprogramming a deep, preconscious brain response to threat. It took time to program in the trigger, and it will take some time to re-

Organic meat, poultry, and dairy products are now available at most supermarkets, which is a change for the better. When you buy organic, you know your food will be free of pesticide residues, synthetic hormones, genetically modified organisms, and a long list of questionable additives. You also have the satisfaction of knowing that the farms that produced that food are eco-friendly. But organic is not enough. In fact, if I had to choose between organic animal products and grassfed animal products, I’d choose grassfed every time. Why? The main reason is that grassfed meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products are nutritionally superior to organic products. This comes as a surprise to many people who have come to equate “organic” with “more nutritious”. Alas, this is not always true. For the most part, the term “organic” is simply a guarantee of what the food does not contain. You know the food won’t contain residues from pesticides, antibiotics, synthetic hormones, or any of those six syllable chemicals you can’t pronounce. But organic food may still be deficient in nutrients or loaded with sugar and “bad” fat. For example, there are organic cereals on the market that are overly sweet. You may be consuming fewer pesticide residues when you choose Organic Honey Oatios over Honey Nut Cheerios, but you’ll still be consuming too many simple carbohydrates. An organic label does not guarantee good nutrition. The limitation of the ‘organic” designations are even more evident when it comes to animal products. Organic but grainfed beef, lamb, or bison will be “cleaner” than ordinary feedlot meat, but it won’t be any more nutritious. When a ruminant is taken off pasture and fattened on an ar-
tificial grain diet, it loses it stores of vitamins E, beta-carotene, CLA, and omega-3s. It doesn’t matter whether the grain is organic or not. Feeding large amounts of any kind of grain to a grazing animal makes the meat less beneficial for human consumption. In order to have the healthiest meat, the animals need to remain on their natural diet of fresh pasture. Compared with grainfed meat, grassfed meat has as much as four times more vitamin E, five times more cancer-fighting CLA, three times more heart-friendly omega-3s, and twice as much beta-carotene. It is also lower in calories, total fat, and saturated fat. (For more details and references, refer to Why Grassfed Is Best! Or visit http://eatwild.com). Furthermore, your risk of being sickened by E.coli bacteria may be much greater when you eat grainfed meat. Feeding grain of any kind to a ruminant increases the acidity of its digestive tract. This abnormally acid environment causes the E.coli to multiply and also to become more acid-resistant. According to a recent study published in the journal Science, these altered bacteria are much more likely to survive the cleansing acidity of your digestive juices and make you ill. Finally, grassfed meat is likely to be free of the most undesirable elements even when it is not organically certified. I don’t know of any grassfarmers who doctor their animals with synthetic hormones, put antibiotics in the feed, or use herbicides or pesticides on their fields. When grassfarms lack organic certification, it’s usually because nitrogen fertilizers are used on the fields or the animals are treated with medications to rid them or parasites. Pastured poultry or pig producers may lack organic certification for a different reason: the high cost or organic grain. Many have found it’s not possible to use organic grain and make a reasonable profit. Yet their products are still more nutritious than those from animals fed organic grain but denied access to fresh
pasture. For example, eggs from a free-range hen will be higher in omega-3x, vitaminE, and vitamin A than eggs from a hen raised in confinement and fed organic grain. The free-range hen will also be spared the indignity of suffocating in ammonia fumes and fecal dust. All this said, I believe that the best choice of all is buying products from organically certified grassfarmers. When ruminants are raised on organic pasture and when pastured pigs and poultry are supplemented with organic grain, you have the best of both worlds-pure food that is also highly nutritious, just the way Nature made it. If I have to pay more for the privilege, I’m willing to do it. But until more consumers come around to this point of view, there will be many grassfarmers who cannot afford to go 100 percent organic. Until that time, I’d urge consumers to choose grassfed over organic every time! Jo Robinson is a New York Times bestselling writer. To purchase her 128-page book, Why Grassfed Is Best!

cont, from p, 1 Food Dehydrating world view food preparation and enzyme preservation. If you’ve lived in Western society over the past decade or so, you’ve undoubtedly eaten dehydrated foods like jerky, dried fruits & trail mixes. What you may not know is that food dehydration offers much more; a healthy alterative to processed foods and snacks. If you’re health conscious, a vegetarian, vegan, or raw foodist, or just want to improve your health- you can dry your own food and preserve virtually all the nutrients, while avoiding the preservatives and other toxins in non-organic, commercially prepared foods and snacks— at a fraction of the cost. If you’re a gardener or a frugal consumer who buys bushels of food at the local farmers market, you already know that in the late summer you can find yourself with far more fruit and vegetables than you can possibly consume. Food dehydration preserves your crop, eliminates spoilage and waste, and provides your family with food during the winter months. If you’re an outdoor enthusiast, a hiker, biker, or a hunter, you can carry lightweight, nutritious, dehydrated food and prepare tasty trail meals by simply adding water. Food dehydration has something for everyone. • It’s simple. • It’s healthy, since minimal nutrients are lost in the low-heat, drying process. • It’s safe, since no chemicals are necessary • It’s earth-friendly, since the energy consumed in the dehydration process is minimal. • It’s efficient, since the dried food can be stored in a small amount of space, virtually anywhere. So Dry it, You’ll Like it! Excalibur’s Line of Food Dehydrators are the only choice when it comes to your health. For more information on how the Excalibur® Dehydrator can improve your health and save you money in the process visit Excalibur’s website at www.drying123. com or call today for a free color catalog chocked with recipes and health tips 1-800875-4254

I have been using Excalibur dehydrators since 1997 and still have the first one I ever purchased. If you are a healthy food enthusiast, are changing to healthy food options, or wishing to dry fresh herbs, veggies or fruits, then an Excalibur dehydrator is an excellent choice. I have found in Excalibur dryers, features such as ease of operation and clean-up with reliability and consistent performance anchored by durability and low electrical costs. The money I have saved and the level of health I have maintained from such a simple investment is outstanding. Excalibur has a choice of models to choose from. There is a compact 4 drawer model to larger 5 and 9 drawer models with, or without on/off timers and they all work great. I know because I now own every home model they make! My own cottage-food efforts over the past 6 years of making nutrient dense snacks for my friends and for sale at my local farmers market have evolved to setting up a commercial community kitchen for producing nutrient dense, enzymatically intact snacks and foods where we now use an Excalibur 2 zone commercial food dehydrator.

A new culture is emerging. We’re creating healthy alternatives to the lifestyles of the past, birthing a new world focused on health and well-being. We’re leaving the toxic world behind. We’re beginning to shift every area of our lives from artificial to natural, toxic to pure. One such area of life that’s gaining attention in this area is the nutritional supplements we put into our bodies. Superfoods and whole-food supplements are gaining widespread popularity. Rather than using isolated, processed vitamins and minerals to nourish the body, more and more of us are looking to the whole plant foods, which science has now proven actually work better than isolates, with no toxicity or side effects! Now we’re beginning to look to companies that offer healing, nutritional supplements in pure food form; one such company is HealthForce Nutritionals. HealthForce Nutritionals is best known for its flagship product Vitamineral™ Green. Vitamineral™ Green helps the body cleanse, nourish and balance with its array of healing plant foods, enzymes and probiotics. In the words of formulator and co-founder Dr. Jameth Sheridan (N.D.), this is “possibly the most comprehensive nutritional product ever created.” Vitamineral™ Green has attracted a loyal following of users over the years since it’s birth nearly two decades ago in 1990, because of its high-end quality, purity and potency never before available. HealthForce delivers products that resonate with the new emerging culture: 100% whole food, 100% raw, 100% vegan, 100% organic/wildcrafted, no fillers, and no isolates. All products are packaged in amber glass to maximize life force retention. In addition to Vitamineral™ Green, HealthForce’s superfood line includes Vitamineral Earth™, Fruits of the Earth™, MacaForce™, Greener Grasses™ and Spirulina, all of which offer major therapeutic value. HealthForce also offers a line of encapsulated extracts focused on antioxidants and internal cleansing. When you meet Dr. Jameth Sheridan in person, it is obvious: here is a man on a mission (in photo). The passion he exudes for researching and formulating supplements is reflective of his larger purpose of healing people. As he puts it directly, “The quality, therapeutic concentration, and affordability of a nutritional product can, and often does, mean the difference between lethargy and energy, sickness and health, and quite literally, life and death. I don’t want anyone to be tired, sick or dead because they could not obtain or afford the best possible product. http://www.healthforce.com (760) 747-8822 FAX number: (760) 747-8922 Orders Only: (800) 357-2717 Please email us at: info@ healthforce.com , see ad p. 12
Amazing Support for the Immune System and Increase in Endurance with Asea!
Word is spreading quickly about a new beverage helping athletes at all levels achieve astounding results. Asea (pronounced “uh-SEE-uh”) represents an extraordinary breakthrough in technology, working with the human body at the cellular level to support vital immune system functions. Because vigorous exercise results in oxidative stress, athletes are looking for proven, effective ways to repair cellular damage. Research shows that the components in Asea increase the effectiveness of the body’s most important natural antioxidants by over 500%. Naturally, that five-fold increase has captured the attention of athletes worldwide. Additional research demonstrates Asea’s effect on athletic endurance. Testing was conducted using top-tier athletes, measuring the change in ventilatory threshold before and after using Asea. Ventilatory threshold (VT) is a measure of endurance, pinpointing the moment during extended workouts when the body moves from anaerobic exercise to aerobic exercise. The longer an athlete can go before entering the aerobic stage, the greater that athlete’s endurance. Remarkably, the athletes involved in the Asea study found an average VT increase of over 12%...after using Asea for only two weeks! No wonder athletes, as well as people from all walks of life, are looking to support the immune system and increase endurance with Asea!

cont. from pg 1 Feeding and Saving the World Dr Sanchez doing everything in his power to find the answer to cancer, has now turned his energies and talents to help save the world not only from cancer but from all degenerative diseases. During the course of his never-ending search, Dr. Sanchez has recently become aware of a tree that has the potential to change the course of human history. This brings us to Moringa, which is actually a family of amazing products derived from the Moringa Tree. Moringa is a must for everyone. The healing and nutritive properties of this legendary tree are truly extraordinary. If you do your own research, you will find a virtual treasure trove of information about the healing and nutritional value of Moringa. The healing properties of Moringa are so powerful that this botanical gift to the planet has even attracted a good deal of attention among the conventional medical establishment. PubMed, the online resource of the U.S. National Library of Medicine under the National Institutes of Health, contains no fewer than 179 Moringa references regarding research that has been conducted by institutions such as Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and others in the top tier of medical research. In addition to the Moringa supplements, which are available in liquid, capsules and powder form, Dr. Sanchez is subsidizing the cost of the tree by making the Moringa Tree Seedlings available to you for the incredibly low price of $10.00 each. (The seedlings are approximately 12 inches in height.) Although the seedlings flourish in tropical climates, just as with any other plant, they can be grown inside your home in colder climates. Even among those who are aware of Moringa’s amazing healing properties, many are unaware of the fact that every part of the Moringa Tree is edible. The leaves, for example, can be used for salads, soups and breakfast cereal. The seeds are also a valuable resource. In addition to the obvious benefits associated with the natural process of plant photosynthesis purifying the air, crushed Moringa seeds can even be used to decontaminate drinking water. This one botanical wonder has such great potential for saving, feeding and healing the Earth’s environment and people that Dr. Sanchez has taken it upon himself to establish the Saving, Feeding and Healing the Planet Foundation. We need thousands of volunteers to help us avoid another tragedy like what is happening in the aftermath of the earthquake in Haiti. It is also important to note that anyone who is willing to take their involvement to the next level will be compensated for their outreach efforts. There is an enormous opportunity here for anyone who is interested in generating an income. Please contact our office immediately at 1-866-991-9942 for further details about how you can be compensated for your outreach efforts.

at the Cancer Control Society Convention that they have in LA every Labor Day weekend, was so excited that she called me up the next morning to tell me that all her pain had gone away. Far Infrared Light energy is becoming more and more popular. The toxins are then carried by the lymphatic system out of the body through sweating. This sweat (from the Relax Sauna) has been measured, and compared to regular sweat from a workout or from a regular (Finnish) Sauna that uses the hot rocks, and there are so many toxins in this Relax Sauna Sweat that are NOT present in the other sweat. So again, It’s the Light, not the heat.-Far Infrared Light is absorbed into the body, and increases the core temperature of the body. This is why the Mayo Clinic in 1994 pointed out that although regular saunas are contraindicative for heart patients, they were recommending Far Infrared Saunas to their heart patients as a therapy. Massage therapists who use the Sauna in their offices report their treatment is more efficient. The Relax Sauna uses a PATENTED ceramic semi conductor chip that is able to filter out all of the non-healing energies, so that only Far Infrared Light (which is the only light that you can absorb into your body, since it is the only light that matches the energy we ourselves, as light beings, emit.) is emitted and absorbed into our bodies. You can contact us in Columbus at 800/533-4372, or can find out more information about the relax sauna at our website: www.momentum98.com.
If you are a therapist or health professional and would like to make the services of the relax sauna available to your clients, please also contact us so we can arrange for you to have one of these in your office. About the author:-Phllip Wilson has been promoting the healing benefits of Far Infrared Light for about 6 years. With training as a mathematician, including 4 years of graduate school in mathematics at Ohio State University, Phil is quite articulate, and is planning a career of writing and speaking. He has been selling health products since 1973, and currently owns Momentum98, a brick and mortar health food store in Columbus, Ohio, which has been at its present location now for 21 years, and specializes in selling innovative holistic health products. www.Momentum98.com has been a very active and popular website now since 1998.

cont. from p. 9 Vegetarian Diets for Children: Right from the Start children were following a macrobiotic diet, a few were Seventhday Adventists (many of whom follow a plant-based diet), and the rest were from families that had simply decided to go vegetarian. On intelligence testing, the kids were considerably above average, with a mean IQ of 116. Now, the diet may have had nothing to do with their intelligence. Rather, these vegetarian families were better educated than the average meat-eating family, and it is probably the parental education, rather than a dietary effect, that was reflected in their children’s measured intelligence. However, this study should reassure vegetarian parents who wonder whether animal products contain something necessary for brain development. Clearly, they do not. Perhaps the most important consideration for feeding children is this: Lifelong dietary habits are established at a young age. Children who acquire a taste for chicken nuggets, roast beef, and French fries today are the cancer patients, heart patients, and diabetes patients of tomorrow. Children who are raised on whole grains, vegetables, fruits, and legumes will have a lower risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer, and many obesity-related illnesses compared to their counterparts raised on the average American diet. Because of this, they will also tend to live years longer. Nutrient Needs The complex carbohydrates found in whole grains, beans, and vegetables provide the ideal energy to fuel a child’s busy life. Cultivating a taste for brown rice, whole wheat breads and pastas, rolled oats, and corn, as well as the less common grains barley, quinoa, millet, and others, will boost the fiber and nutrient content of a child’s diet. In addition, steering children away from sweets, sugary drinks, highly processed baked products, and overly sweet cereals will help them avoid overeating and gaining unwanted weight. Naturally, children need protein to grow, but they do not need high-protein, animal-based foods. Many people are unaware that a varied menu of grains, beans, vegetables, and fruits supplies plenty of protein. The “protein deficiencies” that our parents worried about in impoverished countries were the result of starvation or diets restricted to very few food items. Protein deficiency is extremely unlikely on a diet drawn from a variety of plant foods. Very young children may need a slightly higher fat intake than adults do. Healthier fat sources include soybean products, avocados, and nut butters. Soy “hot dogs,” peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, seasoned veggie burgers, and avocado chunks in salads, for example, are very well accepted. However, the need for fat in the diet should not be taken too far. American children often have fatty streaks in the arteries—the beginnings of heart disease—before they finish high school. In contrast, Japanese children traditionally grew up on diets much lower in fat and subsequently had fewer problems with diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and other chronic diseases. Parents will want to make sure their child’s diet includes a regular source of vitamin B12, which is needed for healthy blood and nerve function. Deficiencies are rare, but when they happen, they can be a bit hard to detect. Vitamin B12 is plentiful in many commercial cereals, fortified soy and rice milks, and nutritional yeast. Check the labels for the words cyanocobalamin or B12. Children who do not eat these sup-
plemented products should take a B12 supplement of 3 or more micrograms per day. Common children’s vitamins contain more than enough B12. Spirulina and seaweed are not reliable sources of vitamin B12. The body also requires vitamin D, which children and parents are happy to know can be obtained by simply playing outdoors in the sun. Fifteen to twenty minutes of daily sunlight on the hands and face is enough sun exposure for the body’s skin cells to produce the necessary vitamin D. Children in latitudes with diminished sunlight may need the vitamin D found in multivitamin supplements or fortified non-dairy milks. For calcium, beans, dried figs, sweet potatoes, and green vegetables, including collards, kale, broccoli, mustard greens, and Swiss chard, are excellent sources. Fortified soymilk and rice milk and calcium-fortified juices provide a great deal of calcium as well. In addition, eating lots of fruits and vegetables, excluding animal proteins, and limiting salt intake all help the body retain calcium. Growing children also need iron found in a variety of beans and green, leafy vegetables. The vitamin C in vegetables and fruits enhances iron absorption, especially when eaten together with an iron-rich food. One example is an iron-rich bean burrito eaten with vitamin C-rich tomato salsa. Few people are aware that cow’s milk is very low in iron and can induce a mild, chronic blood loss in the digestive tract, which can reduce iron and cause an increased risk of anemia. Infants Again, the best food for newborns is breast milk. When breast-feeding is not possible, commercial soy formulas are nutritionally adequate. There is no need for infants to be raised on cow’s milk formulas. In addition to containing colic-inducing proteins that bother many children, cow’s milk is a common cause of allergies.
recommend holding off on introducing wheat until the child is at least 8 months old, as it tends to be more allergenic. 6 to 8 Months * Introduce vegetables. Potatoes, green beans, carrots, and peas are all good choices. They should be thoroughly cooked and mashed. * Introduce fruits. Try mashed bananas, avocados, or strained peaches, or applesauce. * Introduce breads. By 8 months of age, most babies can eat crackers, bread, and dry cereal. * Introduce protein-rich foods. Also by about 8 months, infants can begin to eat higher protein foods like tofu or beans that are well cooked and mashed. Children and Teens Children have high calorie and nutrient needs, but their stomachs are small. Offer your child frequent snacks, and include some less “bulky” foods like refined grains and fruit juices. Do limit juices, however, since children may fill up on them, preferring their sweetness to other foods. Teenagers often have high energy needs and busy schedules. Keeping delicious, healthy snack choices on hand and guiding teens to make lower-fat selections when eating out will help to steer them away from dining pitfalls that often cause weight gain and health problems for adolescents. Caloric needs vary from child to child. The following guidelines are general ones. FOOD GROUPS Whole Grains * Whole grains include breads, hot and cold cereals, pasta, cooked grains (such as rice and barley), and crackers. * One serving equals 1/2 cup of pasta, grains, or cooked cereal, 3/4 to 1 cup of ready-to-eat cereal, 1/2 bun or bagel, or 1 slice of bread. Vegetables * Dark green vegetables” include broccoli, kale, spinach, collard greens, turnip greens, mustard greens, beet greens, bok choy, and Swiss chard. * Other vegetables” refers to all other vegetables, fresh or frozen, raw or cooked. * One serving of vegetables equals 1/2 cup cooked or 1 cup raw (unless an amount is specified). Legumes, Nuts, Seeds, and Non-Dairy Milks * Legumes include any cooked bean such as pinto, kidney, lentils, split peas, black-eyed peas, navy beans, and chickpeas, as well as soy products, such as tofu, veggie burgers, soy “hot dogs” or sandwich slices, and tempeh. * One serving of legumes equals 1/2 cup of beans, tofu, or other item (unless an amount is specified). * Non-dairy milks include breast milk and soy formula for infants and toddlers, and rice-, soy-, and other vegetable-based milks for children at least 1 year of age. Choose fortified soymilk, such as Westsoy Plus, Enriched VitaSoy, or Edensoy, whenever possible, or use other fortified vegetable-based milks. * One serving of non-dairy milk equals 1 cup. * Nuts include whole or chopped nuts, nut butters, whole seeds, and seed butters. * One to two servings of nuts may be included in a healthy diet, but they are optional. One serving of nuts or nut butters equals 1 tablespoon. Fruits * Fruits include all fruits, fresh or frozen, raw or cooked, and fruit juices. * One serving equals 1/2 cup cooked fruit, 1/2 cup fruit juice, 1/4 cup dried fruit, or 1 piece of fruit (unless an amount is specified.)
Poly-MVA Stage IV Cancer Investigation James W. Forsythe M.D., H.M.D.
featured in Suzanne Sommers New Book Knockout
“We have seen patients go into full remission with aggressive, stage IV cancers and we see continued positive responses in others with previously chemoresistant cancer. Other benefits from Poly-MVA are a significantly improved quality of life and a substantial reduction in the number and severity of side effects from chemo and radiation therapies.” -Dr. James Forsythe Dr. James W. Forsythe M.D., H.M.D. has been conducting an outcome based Investigation on various Stage IV Cancers s i n c e January of 2004 in Reno, Nevada. To date, 207 patients have enlisted in the Investigation and thus far a 56 percent overall positive response rate has been noted. Most patients are using a full dosing (eight teaspoons per day) schedule. For updated results on the Investigation, please click on the following link PolyMVA Investigation presentation. For Dr. Forsythe, Poly-MVA has now set a protocol for his combined approach because in his experience using Poly-MVA with advanced cancer patients has been extremely promising. What is Poly-MVA? If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer, Poly-MVA therapy might be your best alternative. It’s not conventional cancer therapy. Nor is it chemotherapy or even immunotherapy. It’s a patented food supplement that is taking center stage in the battle against cancer. Could something as simple as a dietary food supplement really help in treating advanced cancer patients? Medical oncologist and homeopathic physician, Dr. James W. Forsythe is hopeful. Dr. Forsythe has been conducting a Poly-MVA outcome based investigation on various Stage IV Cancers since January of 2004 in Reno, Nevada and has seen encouraging results. “We have seen patients go into full remission with aggressive, stage IV cancers and we see continued positive responses in others with previously chemo-resistant cancer. Other benefits from Poly-MVA are a significantly improved quality of life and a substantial reduction in the number and severity of side effects from chemo and radiation therapies.” Poly-MVA has been around for about ten years and hundreds of doctors are prescribing it in various countries. It is a uniquely formulated combination of vitamins, minerals and amino acids. In 1991, the patented supplement was invented by Dr. Merill Garnett.Cancer cells are anaerobic, or cells that require very little oxygen in order to function and reproduce. Dr. Garnett’s cancer cell approach relied on the theory that cancer cells thrive on simple sugars and like low oxygen environments for their metabolism. Based on that theory, he developed a product that would interfere with the metabolism process in the cancer cell. Garnett combined palladium with lipoic acid, B-12 and thiamine which created an extremely useful and safe cellular nutrient. These combined ingredients promote energy production and offer potent antioxidant protection at the cellular level. When administered to advanced cancer patients, Poly-MVA appears to have the unique capacity to negatively affect anaerobic cells while supporting healthy tissues. Simply put, this nutrient attacks the “engine room” of a cancer cell and short circuits the cell’s energy production thereby destroying it.

Adolf Dassler was inspired by a single idea when he made his first shoes in 1920, at the age of just 20. His vision was to provide every athlete with the best footwear for his respective discipline. It was this principle that guided him right up until his death in 1978. 700 patents and other industrial property rights worldwide are proof of his permanent quest for perfection. His first shoe, made from the few materials available in the difficult post-war period, was produced from canvas. Adi Dassler focused his work on the classic disciplines of track and field. Athletes wore special shoes from his workshop for the first time at the 1928 Olympic Games in Amsterdam. In 1948 he introduced adidas as the company name, a combination of his own first and last name. One year later he registered the to this day - unmistakable Three Stripes. The breakthrough came for Adi Dassler when Germany won the Soccer World Cup in 1954. www.adidas.com

The Balancing Act, Finding and Cultivating Your True God Self Through Mind, Body & Spirit
Thank you for allowing me to share with you my knowledge and an empowering way of life. I am Jerome Younger, most know me intimately by my spiritual name, Maa Mekhanu. This spiritual name was given to me by my ancestors during my studies of Kemetic Priesthood. This divination allows God to work in me and through me to heal and restore balance to others as they strive to revive the God within. My intent and purpose is to partner with others to help optimize life forces, health, wellness, and healing. My goal is to creatively assist individuals in reconnecting to their original purpose of greatness, life’s purpose and divinity using the mind, body and spirit blueprint for a state of constant peace, healing and health while tapping into the spirit realm to raise the elemental level of spirit consciousness, similar to that of the ancestors, to facilitate global healing of the personal self. The fundamental principles governing my Ausarian religion is the reality that man is made in the likeness of God, meaning that God’s traits reside in man as his/ her essential qualities. The study of Kemetics is the spiritual way of life taught under the Ausarian Religion. It is important to focus completely on God’s traits in man, to comprehend the entire psychological, and social structure of the Ausarian religion through Kemetic practices. The ancient ways of the Kemetic people can properly teach all individuals how to become truly humane by purifying life. By purification of mind, body, and spirit we grow closer to the divine self that exists in all. In striving to attain purification, wholeness and oneness with the divine or God self, three distinct phases must be the primary focus, these 3 phases or attributes are the physical, mental and spiritual being. Simply put, the Ausarian religion is a set of teachings, observances, and practices to guide people to achieve a totally successful life, through realizing God within. I incorporate the fundamental premises and principles received through spiritual ancestors to activate the transmutational process for individual and planetary transformation and healing. Understanding that the human being is a complete entity comprised of body, mind and spirit one must realize that rebalancing these elements can assist in achieving health, harmony, wellness, vitality and prevent future “disease”. Therefore, I provide non-invasive services using the essential natural elements methods of earth, air, fire, water and spirit, as my ancestors used, to assist with healing and “energy” work by freeing the body of toxins to allow it to function optimally through purification and rejuvenation of the body temple or physical vessel occupied by our spirit beings. I am blessed through my teachings with the knowledge that I am aware of the One/All creator, about true holistic living and natural healing, and about respect for elders, nature and community. I am truly blessed that my state of consciousness has soared as I journey on to uproot and purge out the deteriorated parts of self and continue to elevate my conscious God self through my spiritual and cultural journeys to allow me to elevate others towards a more spiritually centered lifestyle!

Unfortunately, immune responses to milk proteins are implicated in insulin-dependent diabetes and even in Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.
Soy formulas are commonly used in all hospital nurseries, although they can occasionally be allergenic as well. Soymilk sold in grocery stores for adults is not the same as soy baby formula, however, and is not adequate for infants. Infants do not need any nourishment other than breast milk or soy formula for the first half year of life, and they should continue to receive breast milk or formula at least throughout their first 12 months. Breast-fed infants also need about two hours a week of sun exposure to make vitamin D—a great motivator for Mom to get back into a walking routine. Some infants, especially those who are darkskinned or who live in cloudy climates, may not make adequate amounts of vitamin D. In these cases, vitamin D supplements may be necessary. At about 5 to 6 months of age, or when baby’s weight has doubled, other foods can be added to the diet. Pediatricians often recommend starting with an iron-fortified cereal because, at about 4 to 6 months, infants’ iron stores, which are naturally high at birth, begin to decrease. Add one simple new food at a time, at one- to two-week intervals. The following guidelines provide a flexible plan for adding foods to your baby’s diet. 5 to 6 Months * Introduce iron-fortified infant cereal. Try rice cereal first, mixed with a little breast milk or soy formula, since it is the least likely to cause allergies. Then, offer oat or barley cereals. Most pediatricians

Supplements and Banned Substance Contamination: Offering Athletes an Informed Choice
by Dr Catherine Judkins, HFL Sport Science, Cambridgeshire, UK
Elite athletes are routinely subjected to drug-testing, regulated by sports organisations across the world in line with WADA (World Anti Doping Agency) guidelines. Test results that indicates the presence of prohibited (performance enhancing) substances can lead to major suspensions, fines, loss and reputation, and potentially the ending of a career. A defining piece of research was undertaken in 2001/2002 by the Anti Doping Laboratory in Cologne. 634 supplements were purchased from retail outlets in 13 countries and tested for the presence of steroids prohibited in sport (Geyer et al., 2004). Almost 15% of these were found to contain steroids, none of which were declared on the label. HFL Sport Science has also carried out studies – a 2007 US survey of 58 products showed that 25% were contaminated with steroids and 11% were contaminated with stimulants. A follow up study in the UK carried out by HFL in 2008 showed that of 152 products tested, 10.5% were contaminated with either steroids/ stimulants. Sports authorities are therefore very cautious in their advice regarding the use of nutritional supplements. While it’s clear that a number of supplements explicitly contain banned substances (as declared on the label), it is also clear that a number of “clean” supplements may be inadvertently contaminated with substances that could lead to a positive drugs test. HFL is one of the world’s most experienced anti-doping labs and has an extensive history in supplement testing. The lab analyses over 4500 products each year on behalf of reputable manufacturers that seek to ensure their products are safer for athletes to use. HFL has drawn upon its experience within the WADA community to advise on product screening which involves analysis of supplements using ISO 17025 accredited tests for trace levels of steroids and stimulants banned in sport. Catherine Judkins holds a degree in Chemistry with Forensic and Pharmaceutical Science and also a PhD in Chemistry. She has been working in the area of doping control in sport for 6 years, at HFL Sport Science (part of Quotient Bioresearch Ltd). Catherine started her career at HFL heading up the analytical team for the provision of sports supplement testing services. She moved into her current role of Business Development Manager in July 2008. HFL Sport Science is based in Cambridgeshire, UK, and provides analytical testing services for sports regulatory bodies across human, equine and canine sports. HFL’s sport supplement testing services are used by many supplement manufacturers worldwide. HFL also works closely with many anti-doping organizations and sports authorities, helping them to advise athletes on supplement products that are safer to use. It operates the Informed-Sport and Informed-Choice supplement quality assurance programs. About HFL: HFL also carries out testing for the supplement certification programs: INFORMED-CHOICE and INFORMED-SPORT.

cont from pg 1 Joint health The scientific rationale for using specific minerals to prevent or reverse tissue damage lies within each mineral’s function within a specific tissue. For example, copper is required to activate the enzyme pathway that synthesizes connective tissue such as cartilage and elastin in the joints. This process occurs via crosslinking of collagen and elastin and is important in maintaining the strength and durability of cartilage. Manganese is also essential for the formation of connective tissues such as cartilage and bone. Strong cartilage tissue is extremely important for performance athletes as it decreases the chance of cartilage degradation due to overexertion and protects against joint conditions such as arthritis. Minerals such as copper, manganese and selenium also act as antioxidants and play an important role in several antioxidant systems in the body, including antioxidant enzyme Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) and Glutathione Peroxidase (GPX), which bind and neutralize free radicals that cause inflammation. Free radicals are produced at high levels during intense exercise, and without proper intake of dietary antioxidants such as minerals, free radical production can exceed the body’s ability to produce antioxidants and lead to tissue damage due to oxidative stress. Maintaining optimal levels of cellular antioxidants such as SOD and GPX are crucial to neutralize free radicals produced during intense exercise, protect against pain and inflammation and speed post exercise recovery. It is important to note that although minerals have individual functions and contribute to joint health via various mechanisms; in reality these minerals work and oxidation. Cancer cells feed exclusively on sugar and produce lactic acid. This acid build-up also creates conditions for more abnormal cell growth in another vicious cycle. What We Can Do-Fortunately there is also a lot of information researched and published in medical journals on what we can do about these four cancer-promoting factors. A diet high in vegetables and vegetable nutrients are antioxidant. It is probably better to avoid a lot of overcooked foods, especially meats. There are also antioxidant supplements, including the really common ones like vitamins A, C and E. There is also a lot of research that shows, contradicting previous warnings, that antioxidants can often improve the outcomes in patients receiving chemotherapy. There are even antioxidant prescription drugs used with some types of chemotherapy. There is research literature showing that a number of anti-inflammatory prescription drugs can prevent cancer recurrence and slow down the process of malignancy. But it is not necessary to resort to drugs because there are foods that have well established anti-inflammatory properties. There is a substantial research literature, for example, on the spice turmeric, which is an ingredient of curry powder. And if you add a little black pepper to it, research shows that this potentiates its effects. Another well-researched item is green tea, known to reduce inflammation and is an antioxidant as well. There are also studies that show that exercise has an anti-inflammatory effect. There
in concert to promote optimal health. For example, antioxidant enzymes such as SOD are comprised of multiple mineral components thus it is imperative that sufficient levels of each of these mineral is obtained from the diet to ensure optimal SOD function. SierraSil® is mineral supplement containing over 60 minerals present in a rich clay structure. The minerals are rapidly absorbed by the body and act synergistically to reduce inflammation and protect against cartilage degradation in the joints. The clay structure of SierraSil® draws out toxins produced during intense exercise, creating a further anti-

Controlling Cancer and the Science of Healing-
Dan Kenner, Ph.D., L.Ac. (www,dankennerresearch. com) Dan is on the Board of Governors National Health Federation, the oldest Health Freedom Organization in the World www.thenhf.com No one benefits from feeling helpless when they are ill. People diagnosed with diabetes are given careful instruction on their diet, exercise, medications, and even how to inject themselves. Likewise, heart disease patients are given dietary instruction, told to exercise and learn to manage stress. People benefit from this knowledge and live longer and healthier. In the case of cancer, however, there is a significant knowledge gap on what we can do to improve our condition, prevent recurrence and optimize treatment. This is one reason why cancer patients often feel helpless and hopeless. Cancer is the result of uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells. Like all living organisms, we produce thousands of abnormal cells every day. Normally our bodies destroy and eliminate them, but there are certain conditions that prevent this process of controlling the number of defective cells. Medical science knows of at least four internal factors that create conditions that promote cancer growth: oxidative stress, inflammation, low immunity and glycation.
The Conditions that Promote Cancer-We all know that we can’t live more than a few minutes without oxygen, but there is a form of oxygen called “active” oxygen that is a factor in the aging process. To combat this, we have an antioxidant system in our cells. This antioxidant system prevents cancer growth as well as the premature destruction of normal cells. Inflammation is actually a healing process initiated by injury to any of the body’s tissues. If there is long term inflammation, it can weaken the tissues and set up conditions for abnormal growth. Chemical byproducts of inflammation can prevent the destruction of abnormal cells, which in turn produce chemicals that promote inflammation in a vicious cycle. The immune system plays a central role in surveillance and destroying abnormal cells. One type of white cell called the “Natural Killer” cell (NK cell) acts as a sentinel and annihilates malignant or virus-infected cells. If the activity of these and other important white cells is obstructed, this important control mechanism operates inefficiently. These natural killer cells are also extremely sensitive to the effects of stress and trauma, and this makes excessive stress a risk factor for many types of chronic disease. Glycation is sugar metabolism. If we have a diet high in sugar (high glycemic), it can slow down the activity of the white blood cells lowering immunity as well as accelerate the processes of inflammation
are many herbs and supplements that are known to boost immunity. One is a cultured mushroom product, AHCC (Active Hexose Correlated Compound), used in hospitals and clinics in Japan to protect the immune system from the effects of chemotherapy and radiation. Another product that is used in the same way is Avemar, a cultured wheat germ product also tested with cancer patients in published clinical studies. We all know what we can do about a diet too high in sugar. We know from recent research that diabetes and obesity are both risk factors for cancer as well as a number of health complications. The solution is to adopt a “low glycemic” diet, that is, a diet with more complex carbohydrates from whole grains and fewer simple sugars. We might think of this as the science of spontaneous remission. Medical researchers are finding that spontaneous remissions of cancer occur more frequently than known previously. Many former cancer patients never develop the disease again. With a little research, we can feel empowered rather than helpless in the face of a devastating diagnosis and also receive the maximum benefit if we are undergoing treatment. Dan Kenner is author of The Whole-Body Workbook for Cancer (New Harbinger, 2009) available in book stores and online.

1.The cardinal principle of recovery from injury is BRICE: *breathing exercises, rest, ice, compression, elevation...for longer term. 2.Gentle stretching-lengthening the affected soft tissue to allow for circulation and freely moveable joint systems 3.Circulation is key! Any areas of the body that can be allowed to move freely and be supported as well, without dangerous effects should be encouraged to do so and assist circulation of the blood though out the systems of the body. 4.Watch the nutritional balance. Be sure a satisfactory balance of nourishing elements is integral to the protocol you use. This includes, but is not limited to: fluids, carbohydrates, proteins, amino acids, fats, minerals, vitamins. 5.Supportive measures can help greatly. This may include: manual therapy as appropriate, kinesiology, soft tissue supports, for safety from post-traumatic stress syndrome effects. 6.A strong physical body enables one to have a strong mind. Work gradually and carefully toward an optimal balance of muscle, joint, bone strength via resistance work that suits your needs. This could be cardio work, mat exercises, weight machines, free weights, or bands, aquatic exercises, Fit BaIITM. Choose one or several and get busy! 7.Mental attitude. Working toward one’s self care goals in an undeterred fashion, without falling victim to negativity-especially in one’s thoughts, behaviors, attitudes in any given situation is of utmost importance, i.e., one can be one’s own worst enemy at times. THINK POSITIVE...IT WORKS!

It is what I feel to be a mission of my spirit as I walk upon Earthmother. I consider these visions to be a gift of the creator, and I am honored that I can do such a thing. I feel that my path has been blessed. Visions are not normally spoken of in my way; however, some are and these visions are of that way. These paintings are best understood by just connecting to them and feeling what they say. A short caption has been written to help one better understand them, although I believe words to be very limiting.
