Psychotherapy may be performed by a number of different practitioners and specialists, including counselors, marriage & family therapists, licenses clinical social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists & psychiatric nurses.Psychotherapy ApproachesPsychotherapy is most commonly associated with spoken conversation and communication between the psychotherapist and the client. Psychotherapists want their patients to be at ease and relaxed, so that they feel comfortable discussing their most intimate and personal thoughts – so that the psychotherapist can help them to understand themselves better.Psychotherapy can also employ the use of artwork, narrative story, drama, music, therapeutic touch and the written word as forms of communication between the practitioner and the client.Since deeply personal & sensitive topics are often discussed between a psychotherapist and their patient, most psychotherapists are legally bound to respect their clients and patients confidentiality.

The patient is encouraged to ‘verbalize’ their thoughts and feelings. This includes free associations, fantasies and dreams. The analyst then formulates and determines the nature of the unconscious conflicts which are causing the patients symptoms and character problems.• Cognitive behavioral – This is based on cognitions, beliefs, assumptions and behaviors. The aim is to influence negative emotions that relate to the inaccurate appraisal of events. • Psychodynamic – The main focus of this form of psychotherapy, is to reveal the unconscious content of the clients psyche to alleviate psychic tension. Psychodynamic therapy tends to be briefer and less intensive than traditional psychoanalysis. • Existential – This is based on the ‘existential’ belief that humans are alone in the world, this aloneness can lead individuals to feeling very alone and that life is meaningless. The emphasis in this approach is to overcome them by creating one’s own meanings & values.

More About Spiritual HealingSpiritual healing takes the entire person into account, not just their emotional and mental aspects. It examines problems from a spiritual and practical perspective, without endorsing any specific belief doctrine or religious or spiritual belief. It is supportive counseling for the individuals’ belief system, support of the essence of the person – and the facilitation of their spiritual growth, often near the end of life.Spiritual counselors are said to self-empower their clients, teaching an understanding of life that enables the clients to no longer seek advice in many areas of their life.

More About Women's HealthWomen’s Health covers a multitude of areas, focused on a holistic approach to overall women’s wellness. Women’s health areas covered include fertility issues, Obstetrics & Gynecology, hormone balance, breast health and midlife transition.Women’s health refers to health and medical issues related specifically to human female anatomy. Associated structures may include the female genitalia, breasts and issues related to being female such as contraception, maternal health, menopause, menstruation, breast cancer and childbirth. Some medical and health advocates define Womens Health more broadly, to not only include specific illnesses and structures related to women, but also focus on issues related to womens health, such as access to healthcare, abortion and contraception and the differences in illness susceptibility based upon your sex, such as rates of cancer and heart disease between women and men.Women’s health as an issue, has also been taken up by many feminists in the past also, where research has revealed treatment anomalies between women and men, and many feminists have campaigned for abortion and contraception access to be improved and approached as a health rather than a moral issue.Key Points related to Women’s Health include:- Read food labels to avoid preservatives, dyes, pesticides and other chemicals – artificial ingredients unbalance the hormonal system causing PMS and reduced estrogen levels.- Try to eat only raw fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts, fresh fish and whole grains – packaged goods lack nutritional quality.- Your liver, ovaries, adrenal and pituitary glands and thyroid need a sufficient supply of omega 3 fatty acids, to produce our own hormones. Organic flax seed oil is an excellent source of Omega 3.- If you are not producing enough of your own hormones, this can be helped by eating alfalfa and other foods containing phytoestrogens, as they act just like estrogen in the body.- Toxins from non-organic foods, the environment and personal care products can cause havoc on your hormonal system and overwhelm the body. Exercises that move the whole body will remove toxins through the lymphatic system.- USDA beef and dairy products contain heavy hormone residues. This interferes with your own hormonal system, try to eat organic dairy and beef, as they do not have livestock hormones in them.- Altered fats and oils such as margarine, hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils, chips, fried foods etc also disrupt the female hormonal system. Utilizing products with cold-pressed, organic unrefined oils are a great improvement.- Hormonal imbalances can be added to by the use of synthetic and ‘natural’ isolated vitamins, switch to 100% whole food concentrate nutritional supplements. They are formulated to feed your cells with live nutrients that you are missing in your diet. This can bring huge benefits.- National Institute of Health researchers found that the risk of hormone estrogen use increases the chances of women, who are otherwise healthy, of having a stroke by 41%, increase the risk of heart attack by 29% and breast cancer by 24%.- HRT or Hormone Replacement Therapy – consists of drugs in the form of skin patches, creams or tablets, they increase the levels of sex hormone oestrogen.Routine care is the best way to keep you and your breasts healthy, detecting breast cancer at it’s earliest stages is the main goal of breast care, but other benign conditions like fibrocystic breasts, cysts and other issues are often discovered during routine care.Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer among women in the United States, other than skin cancer, and early detection of breast cancer greatly increases the survival rates. Treatment and options for breast cancer have improved greatly over recent years.

Acupuncture2. Traditional Chinese Medicine3. Natural Hormone Therapy4. Massage5. Meditation & Relaxation TechniquesBrief details of each above mentioned modality or focus area, are outlined below for reference. Many individuals receive relief from aches and pains, and an overall increase in health and vitality when utilizing these holistic anti aging treatments.Acupuncture - Acupuncture is a technique of inserting and manipulating fine filiform needles into specific points on the body with the aim of relieving pain and for therapeutic purposes. Acupuncture is thought to have originated in China and is most commonly associated with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) - Traditional Chinese Medicine includes a range of traditional medical practices originating in China. It is considered as a complimentary medicine in the western world, though it remains a primary form of medical care throughout Asia.TCM practices include treatments such as herbal medicine, acupuncture, dietary therapy, Tui na and Shiatsu massage; often Qigong and Taiji are also strongly affiliated with TCM. TCM theory is extremely complex and originated thousands of years ago through meticulous observation of nature, the cosmos, and the human body.Natural Hormone Therapy - Advocates taking a combination of naturally based vitamins and supplements to ease aging and maintain vitality and good health.Massage - Massage involves acting on and manipulating the patient's body with pressure (structured, unstructured, stationary, and/or moving), tension, motion, or vibration done manually or with mechanical aids.

More About HypnotherapyHypnotherapy is therapy that is undertaken when a subject is under hypnosis. Subjects under hypnosis are typically much ‘suggestible’ or have ‘hyper-suggestibility’ meaning that while under hypnosis, they are more susceptible to suggestions. If someone is not hyper-suggestible, there is little point in referring to them as hypnotized.Hypnosis is often used as a tool to help individuals with addictions, whether they be smoking, gambling or alcohol (to name a few). Hypnotists can aim to modify their patients behavior while under hypnosis, help improve attitudes, and help with anxiety, stress related illnesses, pain management and personal development.Hypnosis is often used in state shows and street performances, as the hypnotist can have fairly extensive control over their subject, often triggering a humorous response from onlookers.Mesmerism and hypnotism are sometimes quite synonymous, however, Anton Mesmer did not hypnotize his subjects, he said that trance and healing were the result of channeling a mysterious occult force called “animal magnetism”.In 1892 the British Medical Association (BMA) commissioned an evaluation of the effects and nature of hypnotherapy, by a team of doctors, they reported that hypnotism is frequently effective in relieving pain, helping to aid sleep, and alleviating various psycho-somatic complaints.Further research on hypnotherapy has tended to highlight three main areas where it’s treatment efficacy has been demonstrated:1 Anxiety2 Insomnia3 Pain managementIt is also used in many other applications but research has tended to focus on these main areas.

Wednesday, January 14, 2009 | Wellness News· Get the Kids in Shape After the Holidays for Family Fit Lifestyle Month with Dr. Harry Hong, PhD, OMD, LAc· Tip of the Week: Simple Ways to Keep the Healthy Heart with Dr. Hugh A. Jenkins, ND Get the Kids in Shape After the Holidays for Family Fit Lifestyle Month with Dr. Harry Hong, PhD, OMD, LAc January is Family Fit Lifestyle Month which is a great excuse to get the kids off the couch and whip the whole family into shape. ChicagoHealers.com Practitioner Dr. Harry Hong, PhD, OMD, LAc, explains that there are two types of stress, adrenal and dietary, that are often experienced during the holidays when the kids are on school break. Adrenal stress means too much fun and not enough sleep while dietary stress is simply eating too much of those delicious holiday meals. Both lead to less activity, less sleep and more eating. “The body has an internal rhythm that follows the typical sunrise to sundown schedule which is accentuated when children are on a daily school schedule,” said Dr. Hong. “When the body moves out of this normal routine, the adrenal system becomes stressed and causes sleeping problems and fatigue.” Dr. Hong also emphasizes that dietary stress can be caused by eating too much or consuming too much unhealthy food. During the holidays, children often increase sugar intake which causes hyperactivity and overgrowth of Candida, which is yeast produced naturally in the body. Too much Candida produces extra toxins in the body, leading to high inflammation causing symptoms such as sleeping problems, indigestion and problems staying focused in school. Dr. Hong gives the following suggestions for getting the kids back into shape after the holiday break: · Beat the Sweets – Lower your child’s sugar intake as foods high in sugar are often full of empty calories and end up taking the place of nutritious foods that children need. · Head to Bed – Have children go to bed earlier and keep a bedtime routine. A consistent bedtime routine will establish good sleeping patterns, thus children will have more energy during the day. Tip of the Week: Simple Ways to Keep the Healthy Heart with Dr. Hugh A. Jenkins, ND February is American Heart Month and according to the American Heart Association, cardiovascular disease is the nation’s number one killer. ChicagoHealers.com Practitioner Dr. Hugh Jenkins, ND, says that for many, a fatal or almost-fatal heart attack is the first symptom of a heart condition. In addition, many of the traditional risk factors often times don’t accurately predict whether someone is susceptible to heart disease. “People need to educate themselves about heart disease by understanding the role of nutrition, exercise and positive lifestyle choice,” said Dr. Jenkins. “Health can be dramatically strengthened and risk of disease can be decreased with simple lifestyle changes.” Prevention is the best solution when it comes to cardiovascular disease. Focusing on the underlining causes of heart disease is the best place to start to avoid the problem. Many doctors and patients focus on the total cholesterol numbers but it is more important to maintain and pay attention to the proper ratio between the triglycerides (TG) and HDL, also known as the ‘good’ cholesterol. If the TG/HDL ratio is high, risk of heart attack is increased regardless of the total cholesterol number. Dr. Jenkins offers the following tips for preventing heart disease: · Plant the Seed – A predominantly plant-based diet can only be beneficial in terms of heart disease. The human body produces all the cholesterol it actually needs and any additional cholesterol comes from animal-based foods.· Maintain the Weight – Putting on weight in adulthood means you are just gaining fatty tissue which is what can lead to high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes. · Exercise is Wise – Regular physical activity will increase blood flow to the heart, in turn strengthening it making it easier to pump blood throughout the body.

More About Feng ShuiFeng shui is an ancient Chinese practice believed to utilize the laws of earth (geography) and heaven (astronomy) to help one improve life by receiving positive Qi (energy). It is commonly utilized today in the positive arrangement of furniture and items around a home or office, to create positive energy flows believed to improve luck and life and for individuals to achieve their desired goals. Traditionally feng shui is important in choosing a place to live, agricultural planning and in finding a burial site.Feng shui literally translates as ‘wind-water’ in English, and has a 3500+ year history. Proponents of feng shui claim it has positive effects on health, wealth and personal relationships. Some consider it a pseudoscience or even sorcery.Modern goals for feng shui include selecting and situating human built environments (offices, homes etc) in environments where there is good ‘qi’. Feng shui will also enable one to identify places or locations where nothing should be built. Time, in the form of calendars and astronomy is at the heart of feng shui.Since the People’s Republic of Chian was founded in 1949, feng shui has been officially deemed a ‘social evil’ and a ‘feudalisitc superstitious practice’ according to the state’s atheistic communist ideology, and is heavily discouraged – it has even been outright banned at times. Persecution of practitioners was most severe during the Cultural revolution, when feng shui was classified as a custom under the so-called ‘Four Olds’ to be wiped out. Feng shui practitioners were beaten.

More About FeldenkraisOverviewThe Feldenkrais Method is often regarded as complementary medicine. However, Feldenkrais practitioners generally don't regard their work as "treatment" or "cure," because they are not working from the medical model. Instead of directly working a change to the physical body, they are working with the nervous system and enabling discovery of new choices.The Feldenkrais Method was originated by Dr Moshé Feldenkrais (1904-1984), a Ukrainian-born Jewish physicist and judo practitioner who moved to Israel and eventually became an Israeli. He presented a view that good health means functioning well---working well, having satisfying relationships with emotional maturity, able to access a full range of responses to any situation ("Awareness Through Movement") - this is opposed to the medical health as in not 'sick or disabled' or health in any abstract sense. He asserted that his method of body/mind exploration leads to improved functioning (health) through individuals becoming more aware and finding improved use; this focus on exploration and awareness is typified by his statement "What I am after is more flexible minds, not just more flexible bodies".This goal is reflected in the code of the Feldenkrais Guild of North America which states that practitioners of the method do not undertake to diagnose or treat illness of any kind.Most proponents of the Feldenkrais Method consider it to be a form of self-education and mind-body development, rather than a manipulative therapy.Feldenkrais' approach was more experiential, using self-discovery rather than manipulation. Some of the influences on Feldenkrais' work include Gustav Fechner, Gerda Alexander, Elsa Gindler, Jigoro Kano, G. I. Gurdjieff, Emile Coué, William Bates, Heinrich Jacoby and Mabel Todd, all of whom were more concerned with awareness than with simple physical exercises.TechniquesThe Feldenkrais Method is applied in two forms by practitioners, who generally receive more than 800 hours of formal training over the course of four years.Awareness through movement In an Awareness Through Movement (ATM) lesson, the teacher verbally directs students through movement sequences and various foci of attention. Usually this occurs in a group setting, although ATM lessons can also be given to individuals, or recorded. There are more than a thousand ATM lessons in existence. Most of them are organized around a specific movement function, and teachers lend their particular style to each lesson.Moshé Feldenkrais gave the name to a series of demonstrations he devised when some of his scientific colleagues wanted to know how he was learning to walk normally with a seriously damaged knee. Being an experimental scientist himself, he gave them concrete directions on how to move to discover for themselves what he was learning.Feldenkrais understood these changes to be improvements of the self image, which can be conceived in one sense as an arrangement of areas of the motor cortex relative to the body. The body image was depicted by Dr. Wilder Penfield in the form of a homunculus. Since activity in the motor cortex plays a key role in proprioception Feldenkrais realized that changes in our ability to move are inseparable from changes in our conscious perception of ourselves as embodied. This relationship is clear and open to introspection.An example of direction to introspection is given below:Make a quick list of body parts you know you have but which you cannot feel consciously and compare it with a list of those you can feel. Which list contains the members you can move?Thus Awareness Through Movement lessons are intended to do just what their name says. They improve awareness by using and improving the student's observation and attention to the way they move.Functional integrationIn a Functional Integration lesson, the practitioner uses his hands to guide the movement of the student, in sitting, lying or standing. All of the movements are expanded from the habitual patterns of the student. This allows the student to feel safe, and gives the student the opportunity to observe the movement in detail. Through precision of touch and movement, the student learns how to eliminate excess effort and thus move more freely and easily. Lessons may be very specific in addressing particular issues brought by the student, or can be more global in scope.Influence on somaticsSomatic disciplines influenced by Feldenkrais include: Hanna Somatics, Rubenfeld Synergy, Tellington Touch (for animals), Anat Baniel Method, Sounder Sleep System, Bones for Life, Liberation Through the Body, and others.

More About Integrative MedicineIntegrative medicine is when a practitioner utilizes a combination of traditional and non-traditional healing methods in the treatment of their clients. Non-traditional healing may include a variety of both holistic and alternative therapies.The main difference in integrative medicine is that practitioners consider the mind-body-spirit connection and view the patient as a whole, rather than focusing simply on the individual ailment or illness in question, thereby aiming to address the illness through a full approach to treatment that takes into account not only the pain and suffering caused by the illness, but also how the person responds to pain, what their environment and lifestyle are like, their individual likes & dislikes etc.This enables practitioners to treat the ‘whole’ person, and as a result often has greater benefits to the individual, with long lasting benefits.

More About Intuitive HealingA medical intuitive is a person who uses their intuition to find the cause of an emotional or physical condition. They claim to heal illness by connecting with the healing powers of the divine. They are supposed to be able to heal at accelerated speeds, though their ability to diagnose illnesses and heal them has not been supported by scientific evidence.Many medical intuitives do not make medical diagnoses, but only seek to treat existing identified medical conditions or ailments. They present information to their clients in a more holistic way than traditional doctors, and are regularly known to seek the clients active participation in their own healing. Some medical intuitives even claim to be able to heal people over the telephone.Medical intuition has been used for medical information as far back as Phineas Parkhurst Quimby (1802-1866), whose intuitive healing practice began in 1854, however the term ‘medical intuitive’ was first coined by Dr Norm Shealy and Caroline Myss in 1987, as part of Shealy’s research on intuition and medical application. Some medical intuitives claim to be able to see areas of illness inside the body, others assert that they can view energetic problems with an individuals aura before any physical signs of an illness are present or otherwise detected.Faith Healers often claim to have divine medical intuitive abilities, for example, William M Branham was believed by his followers to be able to discern the health condition of people who attended his services, and in a variety of cases to have healed them of their afflictions. However there is no evidence of these healings and much evidence is anecdotal or from testimonials, but have not been verified medically.

More About MeditationMeditation is the process by which an individual attempts to get beyond their conditioned ‘conscious’ thinking mind, and enter into a deeper state of relaxation and awareness. Similar to self-hypnosis, benefits of meditation can include a higher state of consciousness, greater focus, enhanced creativity or self-awareness or simply a more relaxed and peaceful frame of mind.Meditation often involves turning attention to a single point of reference. Meditation is recognized as a component of almost all religions, and has been practiced for over 5,000 years, but is also practiced outside religious traditions.Different meditative disciplines encompass a wide range of spiritual and/or psychophysical practices which may emphasize different goals -- from achievement of a higher state of consciousness, to greater focus, creativity or self-awareness, or simply a more relaxed and peaceful frame of mind.Forms of meditationThere are various meditation techniques, which can be classified according to their focus:MindfulnessIs meditation when focusing on the field or background perception and experience. The mediator sits silently and comfortably, and they center their attention by focusing their awareness on a process (such as breathing, or a sound like a mantra) or on an object that they visualize. Typically the mediator is encouraged to maintain an open focus.The mediator is ‘anchored’ by their focus, which enables them to constantly bring their mind back to the present, and thereby not allowing their mind ‘free-reign’, they maintain limited awareness and can relax and reduce their secondary thought processes.Concentrative MeditationIs meditation when focusing on a preselected specific object. This form of mediatation is used in many religions and spiritual practices. The mediator is asked to concentrate their focus on a particular object (for example, a specific repetitive prayer) and minimize distractions, returning their mind constantly to concentrate on the chosen object of their focus. In some traditions, mindfulness and concentrative meditation are combined. There are also forms of meditation where the focus can shift between the field, and a specific object. Forms of meditation which are devoid of mystical content have been developed in the west as a way of promoting physical and mental well being, some of these include Jacobson’s Progressive Muscle Relaxation (helping to reduce anxiety and to relax muscular tension), Autogenic training and Shambhala Training and sensual meditation to name just a few.Breath Watching Breath watching involves being aware of and watching your breathing during meditation. To be able to successfully follow this technique, you should:- Sit in a quiet room, distraction free- Sit in a chair or on the floor in a comfortable position- Begin to take slow deep breaths with your eyes closed, breathing in through your nose and out of your mouth- Be aware as you breathe, of your breath travelling through your bodyFocus all your attention on your breathEmpty Mind MeditationThis form of meditation needs focus and patience, it means that you need to empty all of your thoughts from your mind and allow your mind to rest. You need the following to achieve this:- A quiet room- To be in the cross-legged position- Allow all your thoughts to travel out of your body, into the atmosphereWalking MeditationWalking meditation can be done in your office, out on a run or walking down the street. You focus on how your body moves while moving in any of these environments. As your mind wanders, refocus and concentrate on your body movement.Mindfulness MeditationMindful meditation is focused on what is happening to you in the present and being aware of your thought process and your feelings. You are not to judge yourself, but instead open your mind to why you are feeling a certain way, and be open to what your true feelings are. This is the same practice that Buddhist Monks use.Simple Mantra MeditationThis form of meditation focuses your mind on a particular sound. It might be a phrase repeated over and over, or it could be a tone of some kind. Practitioners working with a Master will often chant phrases like Shanti, Shanti, Shanti, repeated over and over, “Shanti” means peace.

Weinstein, MS, RN, CRNI, FAANSince the beginning of time, these basic universal principles of life have applied to everyone, everywhere – moms, dads, kids and more. They cannot be changed. They cannot be broken. They work for all, every time. Once you "get it", there is no looking back!  It will be part of you forever. The simplest definition of this law is "like attracts like."  But, other definitions:

  • You get what you think about, whether wanted or unwanted.
  • You are a living magnet.
  • You get what you put your energy and focus on, whether wanted or unwanted.
  • Energy attracts like energy

And, the law works for holistic moms. We have a choice about those with whom we surround ourselves.  We have a choice about simplifying our lives.  In a culture in which workaholics are revered, it is easy to catch the train – to follow the crowd – to do more.  This interactive session will address how we react to everything that happens to us and how we can take care of ourselves to ensure that good things do happen to us!  March 20th, 2008, 7pmLakeview Whole Foods Market3300 N.

More About AcupunctureAcupuncture is a technique of inserting and manipulating fine filiform needles into specific points on the body with the aim of relieving pain and for therapeutic purposes. Acupuncture is thought to have originated in China and is most commonly associated with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).Different types of acupuncture (Classical Chinese, Japanese, Tibetan, Vietnamese and Korean acupuncture) are practiced and taught throughout the world.Although acupuncture has been a subject of scientific research since the late 20th Century, it remains controversial amongst clinicians and researchers; however, in a 2007 review by Edzard Ernst and his colleagues, they found that “emerging clinical evidence seems to imply that acupuncture is effective for some but not all conditions”.Many official medical bodies, including the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) and the American Medical Association (to name just two) have studied and reported on the effectiveness of acupuncture.Generally there is agreement that acupuncture is safe when carried out using sterile needles by well trained practitioners, and that further research should be carried out.US PopularityAcupuncture became popular in the USA in the 1970s, after American visitors to China returned to report of individuals in China undergoing major surgery, during which acupuncture was utilized as the only form of anesthesia. The National Acupuncture Association (NAA) introduced acupuncture to the West through research presentations & seminars. The first legal clinic in a medical school setting in the US was opened in 1972 by the NAA.Traditional Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture (TCM)TCM describes the free flow of Qi (commonly translated as “vita energy”) as important to acupuncture. TCM states that acupuncture treatment regulates the flow of Qi and blood. It drains Qi and blood where there is an excess, and tonifies where there is a deficiency. An axiom of the medical literature of acupuncture is "no pain, no blockage; no blockage, no pain."Acupuncture Points and MeridiansThere main acupuncture points are found on the “twelve main meridians” and two of the “eight extra meridians”, resulting in a total of fourteen channels. There are other points that may be needled, known as “ashi points” as they are thought to be where stagnation has gathered. The twelve main channels correspond to systems of function, such as the Stomach, Spleen, Heart, and Lungs. Other pathways utilized in acupuncture are the Luo vessels, the Divergents and the Sinew Channels. Ashi points are generally used for treatment of localized pain.Traditional Acupuncture DiagnosisTraditional acupuncturists utilize 4 main methods to work on a patient diagnosis, which are known as inspection, auscultation and olfaction, inquiring and palpation.Inspection focuses on the face overall, with particular emphasis on the tongue, including things like it’s color, shape, the degree of tension in the tongue, whether there are or aren’t teeth marks along it’s edge and it’s size and coating.Auscultation and olfaction refer to the TCM acupuncturist listening for specific sounds (like wheezy breathing) and also focusing on body odor.Inquiring focuses on the "seven inquiries", which are: appetite, taste and thirst, perspiration, urination & defecation, sleep, pain and menses (periods) and lukorrhea, and chills & fever. Palpation includes feeling the body for tender "ashi" points, and palpation of the left and right radial pulses at two levels of pressure (superficial and deep).There are some other forms of acupuncture which employ more traditional methods of diagnosis.What Can Acupuncture Treat?Alcohol Addiction, Allergies, Anxiety, Asthma, Bells’ Palsy, Bronchitis, Carpal tunnel syndrome, Colds and Flu, Colitis, Constipation, Cystitis, Depression, Diarrhea, Drug Addiction, Fibromyalgia, Food allergies, Gastritis, Headaches, Heartburn, Infertility, Insomnia, Irregular or heavy periods, Irritable bowel, Laryngitis, Meniere’s disease, Menopausal Symptoms, Menstrual Cramps, Movement Disorders, Neck and back pain, Nicotine Addition, Pain from injuries, Post stroke recovery, Recurrent Infections, Sciatica, Sinusitis, Sore Throat, Supportive treatment for cancer and AIDS patients, Tendonitis, Tinnitus, Trigeminal Neuralgia, Ulcers

More About AromatherapyAromatherapy focuses on improvements to health, attitude and vitality through the application of essential oils and other aromatic plant compounds through a variety of methods.Essential oils of aromatic plants are known to have healing properties, and are used through massage, inhalations, steam baths and other techniques to assist clients in achieving improved health, healing, and vitality.Aromatherapy is a fairly generic term that refers to any of the various traditions that use essential oils and other plant compounds as a form of medical practice. They may be used in combination with other alternative medical practices and also spiritual beliefs. There are various methods to utilize aromatherapy, including topical applications (applied directly to the skin), massaging products, scented oils and candles and plant based medicine.Unlike many other forms of alternative or complementary medicine, aromatherapy has an essentially Western focus, and medical treatment involving essential oils & aromatic compounds may exist outside the west, but may not always be included in the term ‘aromatherapy’.History of AromatherapyAlthough there is evidence that 2000 years BC various writings in India mentioned ‘perfumers’ and ‘incense sellers’, evidence suggest the oils were used mainly for their aroma. Aromatherapy has it’s roots in antiquity with the use of aromatic oils, however, the modern day definition utilizing distilled plant volatiles (essential oils) is a twentieth century innovation. The word aromatherapy was first used in the 1920s by a French chemist “René-Maurice Gattefossé” who devoted his life to researching the medical properties of essential oils after he had an accident in his perfume laboratory.In the accident, he set his arm on fire and in an effort to douse the flames; he thrust it into the nearest vat of liquid, which happened to be lavender oil (also known as Nox Ph232). He immediately noticed that although he had burned himself in the past, this time there was much less pain and he healed far quicker and with minimal scarring. Jean Valnet continued the work of Gattefossé. In World War II Valnet used essential oils to treat gangrene in wounded soldiers.Modes Of ApplicationThe modes of application of aromatherapy include:- Topical applications for massage, baths, compresses, poultices and therapeutic skincare (many and lotions fall under this category)- Perfumery for body fragrancing, anointments, and oral, rectal, vaginal interfaces for infection, congestion and parasites.- Direct inhalation for treating respiratory infections, decongestion, expectoration and psychological benefits- Aerial diffusion for environmental fragrancing (such as candles, incense, and oil burners) or aerial disinfection Some Essential Oils & Plant Compounds & Their Popular UsesBasil is used in aromatherapy, for sharpening concentration, for its uplifting effect on depression and to relieve headaches and migraines. Basil oil has many chemotypes, and should be avoided during pregnancy.Bergamot is a very good insect repellent and may be helpful for both the digestive and urinary tract. It is useful for skin conditions linked to stress, especially when combined with eucalyptus oil. Earl Grey tea has Bergamot as one of it’s flavoring agents.Black pepper has a sharp and spicy aroma. Common uses include stimulating the circulation and for muscular aches and pains. Skin application is useful for bruises, since it stimulates the circulation.Citronella oil which is related to lemongrass, is used as an insect repellent and also in perfumery. Clove oil is a topical pain reliever or analgesic and is especially useful in dentistry, often prescribed as a method to help reduce tooth & gum pain. It is also used as an antiseptic, antispasmodic, carminative and antiemetic.Eucalyptus oil is often used in combination with peppermint to provide relief for the airways in case of colds or flu (i.e. Vick Vaporub).Geranium oil is used as an astringent, antiseptic and diuretic.Jasmine is used as an aphrodisiac.Lavender oil is used as an antiseptic, to soothe minor cuts and burns, to calm and relax, and to soothe headaches and migraines. It is also used to aid restful sleep, but can have the opposite effect if used too frequently!Lemon oil is uplifting and used to counter stress and depression. In a Japanese study, lemon essential oil in vapor form, has been found to reduce stress in mice. In addition, researchers at Ohio State University found that lemon oil can enhance ones mood and help with relaxation.Rose oil is used as an aphrodisiac.Sandalwood oil is used as an aphrodisiac.Tea tree oil and many other essential oils have external antimicrobial (for example antibacterial, antiviral and antiparasitic) activity and are used both as antiseptics, disinfectants and mouth rinses / washes.Yarrow oil is used to reduce joint inflammation and relive cold and flu symptoms.Ylang-ylang oil is used as an aphrodisiac.

More About The Alexander TechniqueThe Alexander Technique was pioneered by Frederick Matthias Alexander and focuses on methods that work to improve movement habits in our everyday activities, enhance functioning, and aid in reducing tension and pain in the body. The term “The Alexander Technique” was coined after Frederick Matthias Alexander’s death.The Alexander Technique is a physical movement discipline whose principles can be demonstrated with any movement, and it is unique in the fact that it lacks any preset exercises.It teaches the value of good poise and is used to assist patients and individuals to alleviate pain, promote rehabilitation, improve breathing and even decrease stage fright! It can be taught in private lessons or in groups.Alexander hypothesized on the effects of good posture, muscle tension and body positioning after he lost his voice (he was a Shakespearean orator). He began his own investigations into the cause of his voice loss after doctors told him there was no physical cause. He observed himself in multiple mirrors and noticed that he was stiffening his upper body in preparation for speech, and felt this was disrupting efficient overall body alignment. This was later termed a “startle pattern”.Once Alexander developed this theory, he tried to change how his body was reacting and as a result get his voice back. He identified substitute strategies and as a result not only did he get his voice back, but he became a better orator!Later, Alexander believed that ‘self-observation’ (by anyone) could be used to ease physical pain in general, whether it is sitting, standing, walking, speaking or using your hands. Alexander recorded his methods and approaches in four books, and he also trained educators in his technique, mostly during his time in London between 1931 and 1955 (he spent a short period of time with his brother in Massachusetts from 1941 to 1943).The Alexander Technique in PracticeSo how is the Alexander Technique applied? During AT consultation, the AT teacher give verbal instruction to their client while watching and observing their clients body position, and helping with hands-on assistance. This is done to help the AT student to change their prior physical habits. This often requires the AT teacher to demonstrate what they are trying to communicate to their student. The application of the AT technique is designed to allow students to practice what they have learned on their own, rather than it being a curative treatment.Since approaches taught by the AT technique are designed to be applied to an individuals everyday life, there are no prescriptive forms or exercises recommended other than one, which involves lying semi-supine as a recommended means of effective rest. There are a few terms that Alexander developed as terminology, which include the following:“end-gaining” - This means to focus on a goal so that the methods by which it is achieved are lost sight of.“inhibition” - This describes a movement which the student is consciously aware of, that as a result interrupts a habitual pattern of muscular misuse."Directing" - This selects and reinforces the proscribed “Head-Neck-Back” relationship that emerges when habitual misuse is stopped.Benefits of the Alexander TechniqueProponents of the Alexander Technique claim that benefits of practicing its methods include the alleviation of pain and reduction in weakness as a result of poor posture (or repetitive movements), improved pain management for chronic disabilities and improved & enhanced rehabilitation following injury or surgery.It has also been claimed that the technique can help people with breathing and stamina (for sportsmen for example) and can also help reduce panic attacks and assist asthmatics and those suffering from tuberculosis. Some people also believe it can help to reduce stage fright and help people to be more spontaneous. It is thought to help with stress management.Scientific EvidenceIn 2008 the British Medical Journal published reports that there is evidence of a marked improvement in addressing back pain by using the Alexander Technique. A combination of exercise along with 6 Alexander Technique lessons reduced back pain by 72%.In addition, in 2002 Stalibrass et al. published results of a significant controlled study into how effectively the Alexander Technique is in the treatment of Parkinson’s Disease. There were 4 different measures used to assess any change in the diseases severity. At the conclusion of the study, the Alexander Technique was proven to be better than no treatment at all, to a significant degree, and across all 4 measurements.Interestingly, when compared to a control group given massages as treatment instead, improvements as a result of the Alexander Technique then was only significant across 2 of the measures. These studies seem to lend weight to the significance of using the Alexander Technique.

More about Holistic Animal HealthHolistic veterinary medicine is a type of veterinary practice that utilizes complementary & alternative medicine and therapies in the treatment of animals. Treatment may be for physical ailments, illness, behavior modification and a host of other issues. It can (and is) also utilized to maintain health, rather than simply to treat or cure ailments.A holistic veterinarians approach is one where they focus on empathy and treatments utilizing minimal invasiveness. Interest in complementary alternative medicine (CAM) is increasing among veterinarians. Practitioners on our site provide the opportunity treat our animal companions whole health and understanding through a wide-range of holistic services, including the following:- Acupuncture- Chiropractic- Massage- Herbal supplements- Proper nutrition- Alternative therapies- Intuitive communication- Holistic GroomingDefinitionA holistic veterinarian is simply a vet who specializes in one or more alternative or complementary treatments. The American Veterinary Medical Association has stressed that “There is only one veterinary medicine and only one standard by which it should be assessed. All treatments and modalities should be judged by the same criteria and held to the same standards.” They also state that alternative veterinary therapies should not receive any special consideration when their efficacy or the safety of those treatments is judged.Holistic veterinarians examine and diagnose their animal patients by taking the animals whole life, environment, stress levels, full patient history and their day to day behavior into consideration, and then apply a combination of both conventional or ‘traditional’ modalities of treatment, along with holistic ones.It has been recommended that holistic veterinary medicine be practiced only by licensed veterinarians who have been educated in the modalities they plan to employ. They may well be a member of the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association. In addition, the modalities that comprise holistic veterinary medicine should only be practiced according to the licensure concerning each modality.PhilosophyAccording to the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association, holistic medicine, by its very nature, is humane to the core. Holistic thinking centers on love, empathy and respect, and the techniques used are gentle, minimally invasive and incorporate both patient well-being and a reduction in stress. The emphasis is to get away from traditional ‘crutches’ like x-rays, blood tests and other ‘technological’ diagnoses, and instead to develop a sensitivity and understanding of the animal during the consideration of treatment.Holistic treatmentsNearly all forms of holistic medicine that can be applied to humans may also be applied in the treatment of animals. The most common holistic methods used by veterinarians however, are herbal medicines, homeopathy, acupuncture and manipulative therapy. Other holistic animal treatment methods are not necessarily applied by vets, such as ‘whispering’ and other forms of animal behavior modification.

Numerology however is no longer considered part of mathematics but is regarded as ‘pseudomathematics’ by most modern scientists.Numerology today is often associated with the occult, along with astrology and similar divinatory arts. Numerology as a term, can be applied to those individuals, who place an excess faith in numerical patterns.Number definitionsThere are no set definitions for the meaning of specific digits. Common examples include:0. Everything or absoluteness. All1. Individual. Aggressor. Yang.2. Balance. Union. Receptive. Yin.3. Communication/interaction. Neutrality.4. Creation.5. Action. Restlessness.6. Reaction/flux. Responsibility.7. Thought/consciousness.8. Power/sacrifice.9. Completion.10. Rebirth.Digit summingIt is common in numerology to carry out ‘digit summing’ which as the name implies involves taking the sum of the digits in a number, and reparting the summing process until a single digit is produced as a result. For a word, the values corresponding to each letter's place in the alphabet (e.g., A=1, B=2, through Z=26) are summed. Examples of digit summing are shown below:Examples:• 1,571 ? 1 + 5 + 7 + 1 = 14 ? 1 + 4 = 5• Goodbye ? 7 + 15 + 15 + 4 + 2 + 25 + 5 = 73 ? 7 + 3 = 10Numerical divination to analyze and define an individuals personality and their propensities is calculated using the individuals birth date and name.

More about Holistic Cancer CareA study conducted in 2000 found that 69% of cancer patients had used at least one complementary alternative medicine (CAM) as part of their cancer treatment. Most CAM treatments for cancer have not been rigorously studied or tested. Some CAM treatments are used to make the patient feel better, but may not have any effect on eliminating or eradicating the cancer but can improve quality of life, others such as improved diet are being increasingly associated with a reduction in cancer risk.VitaminsSome believe that cancer can be prevented through effective vitamin supplements and this thought stems from earlier observations linking human disease to vitamin deficiency (such as scurvy with Vitamin C deficiency). More recent research findings indicate that many foods have cancer-fighting components, so patients are being advised on a more frequent basis to consume fresh, organic, unprocessed fruits and vegetables for maximum health benefits.Epidemiological studies have illustrated that low vitamin D levels, are correlated to increased cancer risk. The results, however, do not directly indicate whether a correlation between these two factors means that one causes the other.DietThe overall consensus on diet and cancer is that obesity (being 1/3 or more above your recommended body weight for your age, height & sex) causes an increased risk of developing cancer. Supporting evidence includes the fact that certain cancers are more prevalent in certain countries, for example, colon cancer is more common in the US, whereas gastric cancer is more common in Japan. Interestingly enough, studies also indicate that immigrants tend to develop the cancer risk of their new country, typically within only one generation, which suggests a substantial link between diet and cancer risk.Some proposed dietary interventions for cancer risk reduction have gained support from epidemiological studies, examples include those that report that reduced meat consumption is associated with a decreased risk of colon cancer, and that consuming coffee is linked to a decreased risk of liver cancer.Even the way you eat your food can make a difference. Grilled meat consumption has been linked to an increased risk of stomach cancer, colon cancer, breast and pancreatic cancer. This may be due to the presence of carcinogens such as benzopyrene in foods that are cooked at high temperatures.A reduction in cancer markers in a group of men with prostate cancer (who were using no conventional cancer treatments at the time) was attributed to consumption of a plant-based diet and lifestyle changes in a study conducted in 2005. Another study conducted on 2400 women in 2006, concluded that when ½ were randomly assigned a normal diet, and ½ were on a low fat diet (< 20% calories from fat), the women on the low-fat diet had a markedly lower risk of breast cancer recurrence (confirmed in an interim report released in December, 2006).In November 2007, the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) combined with the World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) published “Food, nutrition, Physical Activity, and the Prevention of Cancer: a Global Perspective”. This is the most comprehensive analysis on diet, physical activity and cancer. The report lists the following 10 recommendations that people can follow to help to reduce their risk of developing cancer:1. Reduce your intake of foods and drinks that promote weight gain, i.e. energy-dense, fatty foods, and sugary drinks.2. Eat mostly foods of plant origin (reduce your intake of meat proteins and starches).3. Limit how much processed and red meat you consume.4. Limit how much alcohol you consume.5. Cut down on your sodium (salt) intake, and avoid mouldy cereals (grains) or pulses (legumes).

More About Traditional Chinese MedicineTraditional Chinese Medicine includes a range of traditional medical practices originating in China. It is considered as a complimentary medicine in the western world, though it remains a primary form of medical care throughout Asia.TCM practices include treatments such as herbal medicine, acupuncture,, dietary therapy, Tui na and Shiatsu massage; often Qigong and Taiji are also strongly affiliated with TCM. TCM theory is extremely complex and originated thousands of years ago through meticulous observation of nature, the cosmos, and the human body.Much of the philosophy of traditional Chinese medicine reflects the classical chinese belief that the life and activity of individual human beings have an intimate relationship with the environment at all scales.Contact with western culture and medicine has not displaced TCM. TCM is increasingly more popular, and there are a few reasons for this, including the following:- TCM practices are believed by many to be very effective, sometimes offering efficacy where the western medicine fails. Particularly for fairly routine ailments like colds, flu, and allergies.- TCM provides an alternative to otherwise costly procedures whom many can not afford, or which is not covered by insurance.- Many also turn to TCM to avoid the toxic side effects of pharmaceuticals.TCM has been used as a integral part of extending health services in China into more rural areas & regions, as the costs of equiping and staffing a TCM hospital (along with staff training) are considerably lower than for a western style medical hospital.Traditional Chinese Medicine Treatment ApproachesThe main approaches incorporated in TCM are a number of alternative & holistic approaches, including acupuncture, Tu Na Massage, Dietetics and Herbal Medicine (very well known).TCM TheoryTCM theory is based largely on the concept that the human body is a small universe, with a set of interconnected systems that are complete and sophisticated, and that they work together in balance to maintain healthy function of the human body as a whole. TCM has a unique model of the body, concerned with the meridian system.Theories invoked to describe the human body in TCM include:• Yin or Yang• Five elements• Zang Fu theory• Meridian (Chinese medicine)• Three Jiaos (also known as the Triple Burner or the Triple warmer)

More About OsteopathyOsteopathy is a healthcare approach, most commonly listed as a form of alternative or complimentary medicine, whereby the practitioners emphasize a holistic approach. Osteopaths emphasize and focus their work on the musculoskeletal system, which utilizes a range of physical and manual practices in the prevention and treatment of physical discomfort and disease.In practice, osteopathy is most often associated with treating back and neck pain issues. Many osteopaths view their work and it’s ‘role’ as enabling the body’s own recuperative and healing powers to be released, by addressing and treating any musculoskeletal or somatic dysfunction.In the USA, Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine (also known as Dos) are medical physicians and surgeons who are fully licensed, and they often practice in all clinical specialties along with their other MD colleagues. They practice a full scope of medicine.Osteopathic medicine has been in mainstream use in the USA since the 1960s. Osteopathy outside the US has remained a fairly drug-free system, based on manipulative techniques – similar to chiropractors.Osteopathic principlesThroughout the osteopathic community, there are eight major principles of osteopathy that are widely taught, as follows:1. The body is a unit. 2. Structure and function are reciprocally inter-related. 3. The body possesses self-regulatory mechanisms.4. The body has the inherent capacity to defend and repair itself. 5. When the normal adaptability is disrupted, or when environmental changes overcome the body’s capacity for self maintenance, disease may ensue. 6. The movement of body fluids is essential to the maintenance of health. 7. The nerves play a crucial part in controlling the fluids of the body. 8. There are somatic components to disease that are not only manifestations of disease, but also are factors that contribute to maintenance of the disease state. These principles are thought to be the underpinnings of the osteopathic philosophy on health and disease. Some types of osteopathy include visceral & cranial osteopathy.The osteopathic profession has evolved into two main branches, those in the US and those in European & Commonwealth countries. They have grown very distinct though in recent years there have been attempts to increase and enhance dialogue & discussion between the two groups. European and commonwealth country osteopaths rely on non-surgical and non-pharmaceutical approaches – specializing in ‘manual medicine’. Commonwealth osteopathic students may spend up to ten times as many hours training in osteopathic diagnosis and technique as their American counterparts.

More About QiGongQigong is a branch of chinese medicine or treatment, that has been in use for millenia but is most associated with post-Mao China at the start of the cultural revolution.The ‘qi' in 'qigong' means breath or gas in chinese, and, by extension, 'life force', 'energy' or even 'cosmic breath'. 'Gong' means work applied to a discipline or the resultant level of skill, so 'qigong' is thus 'breath work' or 'energy work'.Some people view Qigong as a set of movement & breathing exercises, resulting in healthful benefits through stress reduction & exercise. Others view it in more ‘metaphysical’ terms, claiming that cosmic qi can be drawn into the body and circulated through channels or meridians. UsesMillions of people today both in China and around the world regularly practice qigong as a health maintenance exercise. Chinese hospitals have officially recognized qigong as a medical technique since 1989.The chinese government decided (after many years of debate) to officially manage qigong through government regulation in 1996, and they also listed it as part of their National Health Plan.Qigong can help with stress management for it’s practitioners, through diaphragmatic breathing, which is an important component of the relaxation response. Taoist qigong, in contrast, employs the inverse breath of inhaling to the back of the thoracic cavity, rather than diaphragmatic breathing. It has been stated that diaphragmatic breathing may lead to reproductive pathologies for women.It has been suggested by Yan Xin, who practices both Western & Chinese medicine, that for qigong to be accepted fully by the modern world, it must pass scientific study testing. He and others began systematic study of qigong in the mid 1980s in research institutions both in China and the United States. To date, more than 20 studies have been published.There is agreement by both Chinese and Western medicine practitioners that qigong can maintain health and improve health also, by encouraging movement, improving joint flexibility and resilience, and increasing the range of motion of practitioners.

More About Bodywork and MassageBodywork & Massage Body work is a definition used in alternative and complementary medicine, to describe any therapeutic, personal development work or healing approach, which involves some form of touching, the physical manipulation of the body and energetic work.Massage involves acting on and manipulating the patient's body with pressure (structured, unstructured, stationary, and/or moving), tension, motion, or vibration done manually or with mechanical aids. Target tissues may include muscles, tendons, ligaments, skin, joints or other connective tissue, as well as lymphatic vessels, and / or organs of the gastrointestinal system.Massage can be applied with the hands, feet, fingers, elbows and forearm.

The most cited reasons for introducing massage have been patient demand and perceived clinical effectivenessBody WorkThe most common known forms of body work include body-mind centering, yoga, the Feldenkrais method, deep-tissue massage and the Trager approach. Other methods can include dance, movement and voice. Body work is often combined with methods for personal development and body-psychotherapy.The terms ‘massage’ and ‘bodywork’ are often used interchangeably, however bodywork includes all forms of massage techniques but also (as previously mentioned) also includes other types of touch and healing therapies. Any holistic treatment that involves touch, energetic stimulation or the application of vibration and pressure can be termed body work.Massage TherapyMassage therapy is known to be one of the oldest healing methods, with medical texts from as long as 4,000 years ago referencing it as a treatment method. Hippocrates (known as the “father of medicine”) referenced massage in the 4th century B.C. when he wrote “The physician must be acquainted with many things, and assuredly with rubbing.”Massage is often referred to as bodywork or somatic therapy and is generally used to benefit and improve the nervous, musculoskeletal and circulatory systems (along with some others). It is known to positively influence the overall health and wellbeing of the recipient.Benefits of Massage include the loosening of muscle tension, relief for aching and tired muscles, overall body relaxation, increased flexibility and motion range, lowers blood pressure, lowers heart rate, reduced chronic pain, improved skin tone, reduction of tension headaches, stress reduction, strengthened immune system, helps in recovery from illness & injury, improves concentration, helps in mental relaxation and promotion of restful sleep.

More About CoachingCoaching comes in different forms, and can be extremely beneficial in providing guidance and encouragement for success across a number of different areas. Some types of coaching include:* Life coaching ** Personal coaching ** Business coaching ** Health coaching ** Dating coaching ** Conflict coaching ** Executive coaching *A coach provides a place for clients to be held accountable to themselves by monitoring the clients' progress towards implementation of their action plans. Together the coach and ‘coachee’ evolve and modify the plan to best suit the client's needs and environmental relationships.According to a survey conducted of coaching clients, some top roles selected for a coach included "sounding board" and "motivator". It is obvious that clients need both someone who will listen clearly to their objectives and dreams, combined with the ability to positively encourage their clients to implement changes that will help them in achieving their goals. Clients are looking for a coach "to really listen to them and give honest feedback.“It was sometime in the mid 20th century, when non-sports coaches emerged, who were non-experts in the specific technical skills of their clients, but who offered generalized motivational and inspirational advice.Life coaching is a practice with the aim of helping clients decide upon and then achieve their personal goals.Personal Coaching is a relationship which is designed and defined in a relationship agreement between a client and a coach. It is based on the client's expressed interests, goals, and objectives.Business coaching is the practice of providing support and occasional advice to an individual or group in order to help them recognize ways in which they can improve the effectiveness of their business. Health Coaching is an emerging new role in the world of health and wellness. Health coaching is being utilized as a way to help people "manage" their illnesses and conditions, especially chronic ones.Dating coaching is when an individual helps their client become more successful with dating and relationships, and to improve their clients success. This may be because the clients techniques do not work well, or because the client has been ‘out’ of the dating game for a while, and what used to work for them no longer does.Conflict coaching is a specialized niche where the world of coaching and conflict management meet. It may be used to help with relationship or matrimonial matters, or possibly in a business context. The premise is that through understanding conflict, satisfactory solutions can be reached that are beneficial to all parties, with positive outcomes.Executive coaching incorporates one on one sessions between a coach and a business executive, with the purpose being to improve the executives business performance, managerial skills, time-management and overall effectiveness to ultimately improve their on-the-job performance.

More About NaprapathyNaprapathy involves the hands-on evaluation and treatment of the muscles, ligaments, tendons, and their surrounding connective tissue, it focuses on the treatment of neuro-musculoskeletal conditions. Doctors of naprapathy are connective tissue specialists, but are not doctors of medicine and are not equivalent to those that hold the MD degree. Tension in the connective tissue can cause a structural imbalance, naprapaths gently manipulate the affected tissue with their hands, allowing the tension to be released and thereby restoring balance.A good example of typical naprapathic work centers around assistance and healing that can be provided for spinal related injuries. When ligaments surrounding the spine become tightened or constricted, they become known as a ‘ligatite’. Problems with the spine can cause much more than a case of discomfort if left untreated! A naprapaths job is to locate the ligatites, understand it’s affects on their patient and then do something about it. Since ligatites are formed by scar tissue, which is inherently less flexible than healthy ligaments, as a result, they can affect and interfere with the nerves that they encase, which will cause a malfunction in the nerves target area, for example, if the nerve controls the stomach, the ligatite may cause digestion problems.The task of the naprapath, is to locate the ligatite, understand it’s effects, and then do something about it. Gentle manipulations can help to soothe and ease the tension around the spine, freeing up the spinal nerves to function normally once again. For example, the ligatite may be constricting the stomach nerve, resulting in indigestion and acid reflux, but once treated, these symptoms should disappear. It is important to move forward with treatment of any ligatites that have been identified, as without treatment, the area of ligature tension causes stress, which can in turn trigger more ligaments to tighten and ligatites to form, forming new or larger ligatites – and resulting in further symptoms. As with any illness, it is important to treat the problem as early as possible.AvailabilityThe oldest and largest naprapathic school is the National College of Naprapathic Medicine in Chicago. The NCNM offers a four-year program, a 3-year accelerated program and a five-year program. Graduates receive a DN or Doctor of Naprapathy degree. In Illinois, Naprapathic treatment is covered by Blue Cross, Blue Shield, Humana and Prudential Insurance.Naprapaths in the US are licensed as in Illinois and New Mexico, regulated in Ohio and may also practice in California, New York, Florida, Texas, Washington and other states where freedom of access statutes permit one to practice as a naprapathic doctor without a license. Although the term Oakley Smith Method is trade marked, the word naprapathy is not.ResearchResearch conducted at the Department of Environmental Medicine in Sweden, compared naprapathy with evidence-based care for back or neck pain. Focused specifically on neck pain, disability and perceived recovery. Of 409 patients in the trial, results at 7 and 12 week follow-ups showed statistically significant differences in the groups, and favored the naprapathy group. At the 12 week follow-up point, a higher proportion in the naprapathy group had improved. The study concluded that for back and neck patients, naprapathy might be an alternative to consider over & above traditional medical approaches.

More About WellnessThe Chicago Healers view of ‘wellness’ is to focus on the importance of good diet, sufficient exercise, and other lifestyle adaptations to achieve and maintain good physical, mental and emotional health.Wellness is generally used to mean a healthy balance of the mind – body – spirit that results in an overall feeling of wellbeing. It has been used in the context of alternative medicine since the 1950s, but the modern concept of wellness did not become popular until the 1970s.Dunn defined it as the following “wellness is a direction in progress toward an ever-higher potential of functioning”. Wellness was also defined by the National Wellness Association (Singapore based) as an “active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a more successful existence”. Wellness is a view of health that emphasizes the state of the entire being (hence ‘body – mind – spirit’) and its ongoing development.Wellness can also be described as "the constant, conscious pursuit of living life to its fullest potential."Wellness is often denoted as either of the following two phrases, “health and wellness” and “wellness programs”. The wellness programs typically offer alternative medicine programs and techniques to improve overall wellness, which may include massage, aromatherapy, counseling, reiki, yoga, nutrition coaching and many other approaches.Wellness is more often pursued by more affluent societies, as it focuses on managing the body after our basic needs (shelter, warmth, food etc) have been met. Many of the approaches taken in wellness are to target and control many of the side effects of living in an affluent society, such as obesity and a sedentary or inactive lifestyle.How can you gauge your “wellness”As previously mentioned wellness is not simply a health approach but encompasses the mind and spirit also. To understand your level of wellness you need to consider factors such as spirituality, family, health, environment, emotional state, social support, leisure activities, destiny and family.Wellness programsWellness programs and approaches can vary widely, depending upon the experiences and skills of those promoting them, along with their views on faith and specific alternative medical focus. There are, in general however, two main branches to wellness, the more traditional one focusing on a spiritual approach, and the more modern approach from an overall health perspective, which may include focusing on living in a clean and uncluttered environment, eating organic food, exercising regularly, balancing career, relationship and family and developing religious faith.

More About YogaYoga is a discipline that focuses both on the body and mind / spirit. A variety of spiritual, mental, and physical practices and techniques are applied - focused on the Body/Mind connection for the outcome of spiritual connection, peace, and optimum health.Types of YogaThere are many different types of yoga, including Hatha yoga, Ananda, anusara, bikram, integral, Ishta, Iyengar, Jivamukti, Kali Ray Triyoga, Kripalu, Kundalini, power, restorative, sivananda, Svaroopa and Sviniyoga.Hatha Yoga is a particular system of Yoga described in the 15th Century by Yogi Swatmarama, the compiler of the Hatha Yoga Pradipika. It differs from Raja Yoga in that it focused on the physical body as leading to the purification of the mind (ha) and prana or ‘vital energy’ (tha). Hatha Yoga marks the development of asanas as full body ‘postures’ popularly used today. Hatha Yoga, which has many modern variations, is the style of yoga which many people associate with the word ‘yoga’ today. Many western Yoga students are happy with the vitality and physical health it develops, and are less interested in the other 7 branches of the Raja Yoga tradition.Ananda YogaAnanda Yoga classes are designed to prepare the body for meditation, by the use of gentle postures that are designed to move energy up to the brain. Controlled breathing and proper body alignment are a focus of the classes.Anusara Yoga is a fairly new form of yoga (1997), which combines a playful spirit with strict principles of alignment. The postures can be challenging, but the main message is to open your heart and to connect with the divine in yourself and others.Ashtanga (or Astanga) Yoga is the name given to the system of yoga taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. This yoga style is physically demanding as it involves a series of progressive and continuous series of postures along with synchronized breathing. When done correctly it produces intense internal heat and a purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and internal organs. It results in improvements to circulation, flexibility, stamina and a light strong body. Ashtanga yoga is not recommended for beginners.Bikram Yoga is the only form of yoga, which specializes in using a heated environment (typically of 95-105 degrees) which promotes more flexibility, detoxification and prevention of injuries. The founder of this form of yoga is Bikram Choudhury (who was an Olympic weight lifter in 1963 and is a disciple of Bishnu Ghosh). It includes all the components of fitness including muscular strength, cardiovascular flexibility, weight loss and muscular endurance.Integral Yoga This traditional type of yoga combines postures, breathing exercises, selfless service, meditation, chanting, prayer, and self-inquiry. ISHTA Developed by South African teacher Mani Finger and popularized in the States by his son Alan, ISHTA (Integral Science of Hatha and Tantric Arts) focuses on opening energy channels throughout the body with postures, visualizations, and meditation.Iyengar Yoga developed by yoga master B.K.S. Iyengar more than 60 years ago, promotes strength, flexibility, endurance, and balance through coordinated breathing and poses that require precise body alignment. This form of yoga includes props such as cushions, straps, blankets and blocks which helps the less flexible, meaning that even the elderly, sick and disabled can practice it. Because it is done at a slow pace, it can be especially good if you are recovering from illness or an injury. Iyengar yoga involves slowly moving into a pose, holding it for a minute or two, and then resting for a few breaths before moving into the next pose. It is one of the most popular forms of yoga taught today.Jivamukti Yoga Was developed in 1986 by Sharon Gannon and David Life, the Jivamukti Yoga method expresses the spiritual and ethical aspects of the practice of yoga that have been disregarded or devalued in contemporary times. It is a vigorous and challenging asana form with an emphasis on scriptural study, Sanskrit chanting, vegetarianism, non-violence, meditation, devotion to God and the role that music and listening play in the practice of yoga. Kali Ray TriYoga A series of flowing, dancelike movements was developed by Kali Ray in 1980. The practice also incorporates pranayama (breathing exercises) and meditation. Kali Ray runs the TriYoga Center in Santa Cruz, California. Kripalu is called the yoga of consciousness. This gentle, introspective practice urges practitioners to hold poses to explore and release emotional and spiritual blockages. Goal-oriented striving is discouraged and precise alignment is not as important as in some other traditions. There are three stages in Kripalu yoga. Stage One focuses on learning the postures and exploring your bodies abilities. Stage Two involves holding the postures for an extended time, developing concentration and inner awareness. Stage Three is like a meditation in motion in which the movement from one posture to another arises unconsciously and spontaneously.Kundalini practice concentrates on awakening the energy at the base of the spine and drawing it upward. In addition to postures, a typical class will also include chanting, meditation, and breathing exercises.Power Yoga is essentially yoga with brawn. It's the American interpretation of ashtanga yoga, a discipline that combines stretching, strength training, and meditative breathing. But power yoga takes ashtanga one step further. Many of the poses (also called postures or their Sanskrit name, asanas) resemble basic calisthenics -- push-ups and handstands, toe touches and side bends -- but the key to power yoga's sweat-producing, muscle-building power is the pace. Instead of pausing between poses as you would in traditional yoga, each move flows into the next, making it an intense aerobic workout.Restorative Yoga In a restorative yoga class you'll spend long periods of time lying on blocks, blankets and bolsters - passively allowing muscles to relax.Sivananda Yoga Like Integral Yoga, this traditional type of yoga combines postures, breathing, dietary restrictions, chanting, scriptural study, and meditation. The popular TV yoga teacher Lilias got her start practicing Sivananda Yoga. Svaroopa Yoga New students find this a very approachable style, often beginning in chair poses that are comfortable. Promotes healing and transformation.Viniyoga This is commonly used as a therapeutic practice for people who have suffered injuries or are recovering from surgery. It is a gentle, healing practice that is tailored to each person's body type and needs as they grow and change.Vinyasa Focuses on coordination of breath and movement and it is a very physically active form of yoga. It began with Krishnamacharya who later passed it on to Pattabhi Jois.White Lotus Yoga A modified Ashtanga practice developed by Ganga White which is combined with breathwork and meditation.Goal of YogaFrom a religious perspective, where Yoga has its roots, the goal of yoga can vary from religion to religion, but typically involves a higher sense of consciousness, liberation from worldly suffering and a better understanding of the cycle of birth and death. It can also be used where the ultimate goal is an eternal relationship with Vishnu, Rama or Krishna.Western Yoga practitioners, when approaching it from a non-religious perspective, often turn to Yoga to improve their overall sense of wellbeing, better breathing, posture & joint / limb flexibility. Yoga can also help with muscle toning and strength exercises.

More About ChiropracticChiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal system disorders, with particular emphasis on the spine. The general hypothesis is that these disorders affect overall general health via the nervous system. Chiropractic care is generally viewed as a holistic and alternative medicine, which many practitioners dispute.Chiropractic treatment includes spinal manipulation along with other soft-tissue and joint manipulation, typically via manual therapy, it often includes exercises and health and lifestyle counseling for clients. Chiropractors typically believe that spinal joint dysfunction or vertebral subluxation can interfere with the body’s innate ability to heal itself, and it’s overall general function. Chiropractic was founded in the 1890s by DD Palmer, and his son helped to expand it in the early 20th century. There are two main groups of chiropractors, as follows:Straights - Typically the minority of chiropractors fall into this group. They emphasize vitalism, spinal adjustments, subluxation and innate intelligence as the leading cause of all disease.Mixers - More chiropractors fall into this category, and are generally more open to alternative and mainstream medical techniques such as nutritional supplements, massage, exercise and acupuncture.Chiropractic is well established in the US, Australia and Canada and has gained more legitimacy over recent decades, with increased acceptance among medical physicians and health plans. There is a strong demand for services, and opinions differ as to the efficacy of chiropractic treatment, chiropractic care is generally safe when employed appropriately and skillfully. Many trained physicians have taken additional training to qualify as chiropractors.

More About Energy HealingApproaches to energy healing vary widely in their origin, approach and philosophy. Many are predicated (referring to their efficacy) based on some form of energy as yet unknown to science, often referred to as ‘putative energy’ – while others such as ‘spiritual energy’ can be and are often equated to understood forces such as the aura being equated with electromagnetism. These energies are referred to as ‘veritable’ rather than ‘putative’.Energy medicine as a term, has been in general use since the 1980s, when the International Society for the Study of Subtle Energies and Energy Medicine was founded. The term was further defined in two books, both titled “Energy Medicine”, one surveys existing research evidence while the other is a guide for practitioners.The NCCAM distinguishes between claims of healing surrounding actual well known forms of physical energy, versus those of an unclear or indefinable natures, where not only is the energy itself, but also the claim of healing virtue is unsubstantiated (such as energy medicine involving putative energy fields).Types of veritable energy medicine include magnetic therapy, light therapy, electromagnetic radiation (radiation therapy – a mainstream medicine) and cymatic therapy (utilizing sound waves). Magnetic and light therapy are collectively known as electromagnetic therapy.Types of energy healing involving putative energy fields includes Reiki (involving the notion of Qi), homeopathy, therapeutic touch, acupuncture, qi gong and distant healing (which may include intercessory prayer) and other related concepts.Energy healing and medicine often proposes that the body’s imbalanced energy fields, can result in illness – and that by utilizing various methods as mentioned above, the body’s energy field can be re-balanced resulting in a restoration to health. Many claims have been made by associating the spirit forms of energy that were poorly understood at the time, such as any reference to electricity and magnetism for healing in the 1800s, at which time they were viewed as in the borderlands of science (no longer the case).There is a gap between the proven efficacy of some therapies and the lack of empirical physical evidence for the health and wellness related belief systems that surround them, and there is a battleground at present between the believers and the skeptics.Putative Energy Healing ApproachesReiki - This is a Japanese technique for relaxation and stress reduction that also promotes healing. It is administered by ‘laying on hands’ and is based on the idea that an unseen life-force energy flows through us. The concept is that if the life force energy is low, then we’re more likely to feel stressed or get sick, and that if it is high, we are more capable of being healthy and happy. The word Reiki is formed from two Japanese words ‘Rei’ meaning “Gods Wisdom or the Higher Power” and ‘Ki’ which means ‘life force energy’. So Reiki actually means “spiritually guided life force energy”. Reiki treatments affect the whole body including emotions, mind and spirit creating beneficial effects that include relaxation and feeling of peace, security and wellbeing, the treatment feels like a glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Many individuals have reported miraculous results.Qi Gong – Qi Gong means “working with the qi” and is the ancient Chinese art and science of becoming aware of this life energy and learning how to controls it’s flow through a precise choreography of movement, respiratory technique, meditation and posture. Qi gong teaches psychophysiological self-regulation – the Qi Gong student becomes aware of bodily functions conventionally considered involuntary – such as blood pressure, the flow of blood and nutrients to essential organs and the respiratory rate – learning to restore a healthier balance. Unlike biofeedback, no technical devices are needed. Qi gong is one of the most cost effective self-healing methods in the world, the investment needed is time (30mins to 1hr per day) and the dividends result in increased vitality, better health and peaceful alertness – all of which are cumulative and tend to accrue daily.Homeopathy – This is a holistic system of healing, suitable for everyone regardless of age, and is a gentle health methodology focused on using diluted natural substances that when given to a healthy person, would produce the symptoms the medicine is prescribed for. Homeopathic medicine is widely used, and can have long lasting benefits with minimal side-effects. Many use homeopathy to treat symptoms such as allergies to pets or pollen (for example). The therapy is based on the theory of treating “like with like” to trigger natural autoimmune responses. Homeopaths take into account a range of lifestyle and physical factors when prescribing for their patients.Acupuncture – This involved stimulating specific anatomic points in the body for therapeutic purposes, puncturing the skin with a needle is the most common method, but practitioners also use friction, suction, pressure, impulses of electromagnetic energy and heat to stimulate the points.Distant Healing – Distant healing utilizes Reiki energy to heal someone who is not physically present. It uses the Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen (Distant symbol) and a variety of techniques such as the photo technique, healing lists, reiki stacks or the teddy bear technique for a point of focus.Veritable Energy Healing ApproachesMagnetic Therapy – Magnetic therapy uses magnetic fields to create beneficial health effects. It is believed that by placing magnets near or on an injury site, a force field is created that encourages muscle relaxation and increased blood flow, while reducing inflammation. Devices used include large machines capable of generating high magnitudes of magnetic field strength, and also small simple magnets.Light Therapy – Many health disorders can be traced back to problems with the circadian rhythm (the body’s inner clock and how it governs the timing of sleep, hormone production, and body temperature). Disturbances in circadian rhythm can lead to various health problems such as sleep disorders and depression. Various forms of light therapy are employed in the treatment of these disorders including natural sunlight, to reestablish the body’s natural rhythm and they are becoming an integral treatment for many health-related conditions.Cymatic Therapy – This is a form of sound therapy, it uses audible sounds that work on an energetic and physical level. It supports the body’s natural ability to heal itself by providing precise combinations of frequencies associated with healthy organ systems and tissues. It helps the body to provide itself with effective and gentle relief for stress, chronic pain, and injury – amongst other conditions. It is also highly effective when combined with other alternative therapies offered by Natural holistics such as massage, chiropractic and nutritional medicine.

Dr. Jaena GonzagaNST is a remarkably effective and gently soft tissue manipulationtechnique that helps to initiate a process of natural auto-regulationand healing to occur in the spinal column and consequently throughoutthe whole body.The main objective is to remove pain and dysfunctional physiologicalconditions by restoring the structural integrity of the body.NTS has been successful in alleviating the following symptoms: acute and chronic pain, headaches, menstrual problems,back pain, prostate problems, neck pain, sinusitis, visual problems, shoulder pain, colitis, learning disorders, leg pain, constipation,emotional depression, facial pain, urinary disorders, digestive problems, and infertility. Alternatives to Antiobiotics with Dr. Harry HongAntibioticsare effective towards bacteria infections. However, over-use of antibioticsbecomes a major factor causing yeast overgrowth in the body. It suggests thatfor severe cases antibiotics should still be prescribed, while for mildercases some alternatives should be considered and used at the onset of symptoms.Herbal remedies are very useful to fight bacterial and viral infections.Common herbal remedies include:  aloe vera, burdock root,cat's claw, cayenne, cranberry, cchinacea, garlic, golden seal, green tea, juniper berry, licorice, oregano leaf, Pau d' Arco, and red clover.Be sure to advise your physican if you are using any of these alternative remedies.

In this program you will learn allthe basics that you will need to begin using your dreams to build a betterlife.Vernon Area PublicLibrary300 Olde Half Day Road, Lincolnshire            Vanilla or Chocolate?  The Power of Choice Dr. Helen Lee  Something that I hear often is "I had anotherstressful week!  And that's just how my life is."  Many people wonderhow they're ever going to create more health while their lives are so stressful. On the very first visit we talk about how physical, chemical, and emotionalstressors that the body cannot adapt to, can lead to subluxations, orinterference in the nervous system.  Thenervous system is what allows us to live life in the mist of all the stressors.The objective is not to get rid of ALL the stress in our lives, that's justimpossible.  It's to minimize as much stress as possible and make surethat our body is functioning optimally so that it can adaptto the stress quickly.  That's health!  At any moment in time you have the choice tofeel, act, react, and be any way that you'd like. Making a choice can take lessthan a second.  For example if I asked you to choose between a vanilla icecream cone or a chocolate one, which would you choose? It took you a second todecide. If I asked you if you'd rather be miserable and angry or calm andhappy, which would you choose?  Hopefully most of you would choose thelatter. And in THAT moment that you choose to be calm or happy, you ARE.   click here for full article Dream a Little Dream Patrick Andries Eachnight we enter a new world where we experience anything from the mundane to thebizarre. This world is the world of dreams. When we examine just how much timewe spend in this strange existence, eight hours per night on average, we beginto realize that most people will spend one third of their lives in thisalternate reality. By the age of sixty you will have spent twenty years in theland of sleep and dreaming. When we put that into perspective it seems prudentto make better use of our time in this strange world.To beginusing your dreamtime more effectively, examine your dream and seek tounderstand the apparent message within it. There are many different techniquesoffered to understand the messages within dreams. I have found some to beeffective and others much less so. Some people even suggest that there is nomessage for us within our dreams. My experience, however, has shown that thereis indeed a relevant message and that all it takes is a little time and effortto understand. My suggestion is to follow your heart and listen inside to seeif what you see and hear rings true for you.  full article Nutrasweet(tm), Not So Sweet Dr. Robert C. Scott, DCIt looks likesugar, tastes like sugar, even feels like sugar. But it has virtually nocalories, doesn't rot your teeth, and, unlike saccharin, has not been proven tocause cancer. The advertisements say it's as natural as a glass of milk and abanana. I always say if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. NutraSweet(TM), the trade name for the sweeteneraspartame, was developed by the B.D. Searle pharmaceutical company and is nowconsumed by more than 100 million persons in the United States several times daily.Searle's 100 million per year advertising campaign, the largest ever for aningredient, is clearly paying for itself and a whole lot more. During 1986,aspartame grossed-more than 750 million for the pharmaceutical company.  more  Quick & Easy Barley Soup This quick and easy barley soup will become a warming, winter staple.2 medium carrots, diced1 medium onion, diced3 ribs celery, diced3 1/2 cups vegetable stock2 1/2 cups hot water2 cups frozen mixed vegetables (carrots, peas, green beans and corn)1/2 cup quick barley1 teaspoon dried dill1/2 teaspoon dried thymesalt & pepper to taste.In a large pot combine carrots, onion, celery, stock and water.  Bring to a boil.  Cook covered over medium heat for 3 minutes.  Add frozen vegetables and return to a boil.  Add barley and spices.  Cook until barley is tender, approximately 10 minutes.  Enjoy!

As a father of 5, Dr. Eisenstein enjoyed homebirth, and after 15,000 births, realized the added value in helping families with all their medical needs.

How it Works Vitamin DDr. Martha HowardAccording to the Mayo Clinic, the major biologic function of vitamin D is to maintain normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus. Vitamin D aids in the absorption of calcium, helping to form and maintain strong bones. Recently, research also suggests vitamin D may provide protection from osteoporosis, hypertension (high blood pressure), cancer, and several autoimmune diseases.  In our electronic world, we get too little natural light during the day and too much artificial light at night.  Too little sunlight causes low levels of Vitamin D.  We need at least 20 minutes of natural light per day.  We even get in the habit of turning lights on during the day, when sitting by the window would do it--so take advantage of natural light during the day, and save power that way. Tennis ElbowDr. Mark Sobor Tennis Elbow or "lateral epicondylitis" is defined as pain or inflammation of the outside part or (lateral side) of the elbow. Dr. Sobor makes these suggestions for keeping repetitive elbow injuries at bay: Conditioning - stretch and strengthen the arm regularly before and after work or play. Get Needled - acupuncture can relieve the chronically spasmed muscles, as well as other areas of pain around the arm. Try this stretch - with your arm straight out in front of you and palm facing downward, take the opposite hand and push down on your fingers and apply pressure until your fingers are pointing back towards the ground. Apply gentle tension until the fingers are pointing back towards you. Aaaah -  soft tissue release or simple massage can help reduce the muscular tightness and reduce the tension on the tendons.

Surviving Seasonal AllergiesDr. Harry Hong Spring and fall are allergy season. Common allergens for seasonal allergies are pollens, dusts, molds, pesticides etc. Common symptoms include sneezing, itchy eyes and nose, running nose, cough, headaches, ear and sinus inflammation. Taking anti-histamine medication may help to ease the symptoms but not resolve the root issue. Most of the seasonal allergies are triggered by IgE immune response, which is a malfunction of the immune system. Allergy information can be inherited from the parents and also developed through later years of life. Many factors can cause sensitive immune system and make allergy symptoms worse. Toxin build up in the body and weakened adrenal system are two major factors. Some baseline food allergies also play a role in many seasonal allergy cases.  more Tips for a Spring Cleanse Dr. Jaena Gonzaga How can we prepare our bodies for an easy transition into spring?  First and foremost, HYDRATE:  Most of us drink less water during the cold season. We forget that there is less moisture in the air during this time of year which can dehydrate us even quicker. Our mind and body relies on water for it's survival. This is crucial! We are made up of about 70% water. Our brain is 85% water! If we are dehydrated, we are jeopardizing our life sustaining processes and function. Water must first go to the brain and vital organs  which are necessary for our survival. Any water that is left goes to our tissues, cartilage, tendons, bones, and peripheral parts of our body. Most importantly, water that is left over helps dilute the toxins at the most cellular level to enhance metabolism and cleansing. more Products versus Babies: Do consumer products really cause infertility? Dr. Ian Wahl, DAc, LAc, CH Let's not jump to conclusions without some facts. Infertility is a complex of factors that defy easy pinpointing. Infertility is rarely simple. Doctors who specialize in fertility treatments once thought that one could merely manipulate a woman's hormone levels, remove her eggs, inseminate them with a sperm, put the resulting embryo back in her, and viola-a baby nine months later. Unfortunately for couples experiencing fertility challenges, it turns out to be more difficult. There is a direct parallel in the rise in infertility rates and the increase in chemicals introduced into our environment and into our consumer products. But which chemicals are doing what damage, if any? full article New Classes Starting at School of Intuitive Arts & Sciences School of Intuitive Arts & Sciences The new session at the School of Intuitive Arts & Sciences begins in May.

More About Naturopathic MedicineNaturopathic Medicine is the comprehensive practice based on educating patients to take responsibility over lifestyle, diet, and habits. It is based on the premise that the body can ‘heal itself’ and uses the body’s intrinsic ability to do so. Naturopaths prefer to use natural remedies like herbs, essential oils and foods, rather than synthetic drugs or invasive surgery, it is a blend of centuries-old natural, non-toxic therapies, combined with modern advances and understanding of health and the human body. Naturopathic medicine covers all aspects of family health from pre-natal and newborn care, to geriatric treatments. It focuses on ‘whole’ patient wellness, the treatment is tailored to the specific patient and emphasizes self-care and illness prevention.Naturopaths aim to find and identify underlying causes for illness, rather than simply treating the symptoms, and they tend to cooperate with other branches of more traditional medicine, referring patients to other expert practitioners and healers as required or appropriate. Naturopathic practitioners emphasize a holistic approach to patient case, and sometimes recommend that their patients use conventional medicine along with their own prescribed naturopathic remedies.Naturopathy is practiced in many countries, but is subject to different regulatory standards depending upon which country you are in. The scope of practice for Naturopathic doctors varies amongst different jurisdictions, and Naturopathic doctors who are trained at an accredited North American School are entitled to use the designation ND or NMD. However, it is important to note, that in unregulated jurisdictions, naturopaths may use the ND designation or other titles anyway!History of naturopathic medicineThe first naturopathic college in the United States, was the American School of Naturopathy, founded by Benedict Lust in New York in 1905. Lust had been trained in Germany by Father Sebastian Kneipp. Naturopathy has been around for centuries however and Hippocrates is seen by many as the first advocate of naturopathic medicine (before the term officially existed).Naturopathy took a dip in popularity in the 1930s, as penicillin and synthetic drugs like antibiotics and corticosteroids were developed and became available for use. Naturopathy began it’s modern renewal in 1956 when the National College of Naturopathic Medicine was opened in Portland, Oregon. It offered 4 year naturopathic medical training. Today there are 6 accredited naturopathic medical schools in North America.PrinciplesThere are six core values to naturopathy, of which there are multiple versions, and mission statements from Naturopathic schools, but they basically cover the following:1. First, do no harm; provide the most effective health care available with the least risk to patients at all times (Primum Non Nocere). 2. Recognize, respect and promote the self-healing power of nature inherent in each individual human being. (Vis Medicatrix Naturae). 3. Identify and remove the causes of illness, rather than eliminate or suppress symptoms (Tolle Causum). 4. Educate, inspire rational hope and encourage self-responsibility for health (Doctor as Teacher). 5. Treat each person by considering all individual health factors and influences. (Treat the Whole Person). 6. Emphasize the condition of health to promote well-being and to prevent diseases for the individual, each community and our world. (Health Promotion, the Best Prevention) ModalitiesThe focus of a naturopath is on ‘natural’ health, and as a result there are not specific methods that practitioners utilize in the treatment of their patients – they tend instead to use a wide variety of natural & alternative treatment modalities. The main treatments utilized however, are, acupuncture / oriental medicine, botanical medicine, homeopathy, nutrition, physical medicine (may include sports medicine, manipulative therapy etc), nature cure (exposure to natural elements such as sunshine and fresh air) and psychological counselling (meditation & relaxation). Some naturopaths also use color therapy, iridology, kinesiology and reflexology as other treatment options.PractitionersThere are two groups in North America calling themselves "naturopaths". There are traditional naturopaths, who are not primary care physicians, and then there are naturopathic doctors, who have been trained in traditional medical practices along with training in the traditional naturopathic approach.

More About NutritionNUTRITION & FOODPractitioners on our site, focus their work around nutrition on maintaining health and longevity through the use of tools and evaluation. They can then direct clients in applicable dietary changes and advise them on any necessary vitamin/mineral supplements they should take, to benefit their overall health & wellbeing.What is Nutrition?Nutrition is the provision to cells and organisms, of the materials necessary (food!) to support life. Providing each cell and cellular structure with the nutrients, vitamins and minerals they need for optimal function. Common health problems can be prevented or eased through effective nutrition.Diet – Refers to what an organism eats. Dietitians specialize in human nutrition, economics, food preparation & planning etc. They are trained to provide safe dietary advice and management that is based upon scientific evidence, to both individuals and institutions (such as schools).A diet low in certain vitamins and minerals can result in diseases related directly to poor nutrition and deficiencies, such as scurvy and beriberi. Poor diet can also cause health-threatening illnesses like obesity, anorexia, metabolic syndrome and systemic diseases like cardiovascular disease, diabetes and osteopororis.It has been proven, that eating a wide variety of fresh, whole unprocessed foods, is favorable vs. eating a monotonous diet based on processed foods. Better management of cell growth, maintenance and cell division can be achieved by the consumption of ‘whole’ plant foods, as they slow digestion and provide higher amounts and a better balance of essential nutrient per calorie.It is important also, to have regularly scheduled meals every few hours, rather than haphazard infrequent ones.NutrientsThere are seven main classes of nutrients, each of which can be further broken down into macronutrients (needed in fairly large amounts) and micronutrients (needed in much smaller quantities). The seven classes are: carbohydrates, fats, fiber, minerals, proteins, vitamins and water.Types of DietsThere are many types of diets advocated today – including Macrobiotic diet, Mediterranean diet and the raw food diet (to name but a few). Brief details on each of the above diets are shown below:Macrobiotic DietThe macrobiotic diet is part of the Far Eastern philosophy of macrobiotics meaning “great life”. The food guidelines for the macrobiotic diet have continued to evolve, but basically are as follows:- 50% whole grains- 25% seasonal vegetables, raw or cooked- 10% protein foods – including fish & legumes- 5% sea vegetables- 5% soups- 5% nuts, fruit & seedsThose following a macrobiotic diet should choose organic foods that should be eaten when fresh (you should not use frozen foods if possible), and the diet also governs how the food should be prepared. Food should be eaten and chewed slowly, in a relaxed manner (this should apply to all types of diets – not purely the macrobiotic diet – it enables your stomach and digestive processes to better digest the food as you masticate and swallow it!). Microwaves should not be used either. Foods that have been excluded from the macrobiotic diet include eggs, meat, cheese, alcohol, spices and sugars.The Mediterranean DietThe mediterranean diet is advocated as a an option that is ‘heart-healthy’, a 2007 study in the US showed that both men and women who consumed a mediterranean diet reduced their risk of both cancer and heart disease. The mediterranean diet focuses on healthy eating, with some flavorful olive oil and an occassional splash (or glass) of red wine. You should include fruits, vegetables, fish and whole grains and limit unhealthy fats or excessive amounts of sugar. The main components of a mediterranean diet include:- Eating generous amounts of vegetables & fruit- Eating small portions of nuts- Drinking red wine (in moderation)- Eating fish on a regular basis- Eating very little red meat- Consuming healthy fats such as canola and olive oilBreads, pastas & grains / rice also form a regular component of a mediterraean diet, but the breads (for example) are rarely eaten with either butter or margarine, which contain saturated or trans fats. It is important to note also, that grains in the mediterranean diet are often whole grains.The Raw Diet (Rawism or Raw Foodism)This is a lifestyle characterized by the consumption of between 60%-100% raw food. People advocating a raw food diet generally believe that the more raw food in your diet, the healthier the individual will become. Some raw foodists consume only non-meat products (vegetarian) while others also advocate the consumption of both raw meat and fish. Many people who are not raw foodists, enjoy sushi or Steak Tartare, both of which are wholly raw.Raw food diets may include a selection of raw fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, fish, eggs, meat and non-pasteurized or non-homogenized dairy products (such as raw yogurt, raw cheese and raw milk). Many individuals believe that the consumption of raw food encourages both weight loss, and prevents and heals many ailments, sicknesses and chronic diseases. Some medical studies have indicated that some raw food diets lead to health problems, while other studies have shown positive health outcomes with this approach.As with any change in diet, please consult your physician before changing your dietary intake.

More About AstrologyAstrology centers on the belief that knowledge of the positioning of celestial bodies and other related details, is useful in understanding, interpreting and organizing information about an individuals personality and other matters.Someone who practices astrology is called an ‘astrologer’ or an ‘astrologist’. Astrology has been around for centuries, having first been recorded in the 3rd millenium BC. It has played a role in early astronomy, the shaping of culture and other disciplines throughout history.You may want to understand the difference between astrology and astronomy. Simply put, astronomy is the scientific study of astronomical objects and phenomena, but without any associated astrological speculation.Astrology is defined as belief that life on Earth and events experienced on the human scale are directly influenced by the positions of celestial bodies. Modern astrologers define astrology as a symbolic language, and art form and a form of divination. Although there are differing definitions, the common approach is that astrology uses the position of the plants and other celestial bodies (sun, moon & stars) to explain not only past events, but also to determine the future. Most modern day scientists consider astrology to be a ‘pseudoscience’. Studies have determined however, that even though scientists do not generally back astrology, 39% of Americans consider astrology to be scientific, while 31%expressed a belief in astrology.Core beliefsThere are two main methods by which astrologists claim to be able to predict future trends and events. These are known as astrological transits and astrological progressions. In astrological transits, the ongoing and predictive movements of the planets are interpreted as they travel through space and the horoscope. Modern day astrologers don’t try any longer to predict specific events, but focus instead on general developments and trends.In the past, astrologers tended to rely on their own close observation of celestial bodies and then charting their movements, modern day astrologers however, get their data from astronomers. The data is transformed into a set of astrological tables called ephemerides and these show the changing zodiacal positions over time.Current Astrological TraditionsThe main traditions used by modern astrologers are, Vedic, Western and Chinese astrology.Vedic and Western astrology are similar in the fact that they both focus on the casting of astrological charts or ‘horoscopes’ to focus on an event based on the position of the sun, moon and planets at the time of the event. Vedic astrology uses the sidereal zodiac (which links the signs of the zodiac to their original constellations) whereas Western astrology uses the tropical zodiac.In Chinese astrology a very different tradition has evolved, where each zodiac governs a different year, and combine with the five elements of chinese cosmology to give a 60 (12 x 5) year cycle. Very similar versions exist in Korea, Japan, Vietnam, Thailand and other Asian countries.

For frequent flyers or first time flyers, ChicagoHealers.com practitioner James Jordan, CNC, JD has some helpful tips on how to stay healthy while traveling. "Most people do not follow their diet plans while traveling," says James Jordan, "This is understandable, considering people are often hurried and don't have the time or access to a nearby health food store, but we wanted to offer consumers a few suggestions to use during their travel periods."Here are some great hints to make sure you can enjoy your vacation to the fullest. Following are tips for travelers:1. Snacks should ideally be a balance of protein, carbohydrates and fat . Just peanuts alone or just fruit alone can imbalance a person's blood sugar and metabolism but protein foods like nuts or seeds combined with fruit is a perfect snack.2. Nuts and seeds should be raw not roasted. Roasted nuts and seeds increase the LDL which is the "Bad" cholesterol, RAW nuts and seeds increase the HDL which is the "Good" Cholesterol. Recommendations include: almonds, walnuts, pecans, Brazil nuts, pine nuts, cashews, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds and pumpkin seeds.3. Dried fruit such as figs, dates and raisins combines well with nuts and seeds and does not have to be refrigerated. It is important to eat these fruits with some protein and fat to keep one's blood sugar balanced.4. Packaged Japanese soups in envelopes found in the oriental food section or health food and grocery stores ideal for traveling, including: white and red miso soup and wakame soup. These soups are very high in trace minerals which helps keep one alkalinized and energized during the stress of travel.5. High quality organic and raw milk cheeses are a convenient protein and mineral rich food that combines well with avocado, nuts, seeds and fruit.6. Bring a small cooler on the plane with some fresh foods for the trip and up to several days upon arrival. Depending on dining options at a destination, one may want to stock up on favorite healthy fresh foods that need refrigeration, including: vegetables, fruits, eggs and milk.7. For a power shake mix the following ingredients in shaker cup with water: ground flaxseeds or flax seed oil (oil must be in a cooler or refrigerated), whey or rice protein powder, and barely green powder. Add a teaspoon of unheated, raw honey or a teaspoon of stevia powder and you have a perfectly macronutrient balanced power drink full of protein, nutrient dense green foods, and omega 3 essential fatty acids.8. Another source of protein is dried naturally raised beef and bison jerky from health food stores. These provide the 30-40 grams of protein needed per snack to feel balanced and energized. Combine this healthy meat meal with some celery sticks or pre-bagged salad greens and enjoy a protein and fiber rich snack.9. Hydration is crucial while traveling by plane. Bring plenty of healthy mineral rich water to offset the acidity generated from stress and eating a diet higher in sugar and caffeine.10. Always bring some fresh citrus, apples, cucumbers or celery on your trip to get needed fiber and extra water.Link: ABClocal.go.com

Conclusion: EPA, CDC does not know if DEET or many other chemicals used in commercial products will be safe for any particular individual.* Chemicals tested for immediate harm or injury - not over extended period of time for cumulative effect on the body.* No debate over whether DEET is toxic: just how toxic for each particular person.* Natural alternatives safer because humans have evolved enzyme systems over centuries to metabolize toxic effect of plant substances, chemical based toxins recent invention and there has been insufficient time to develop enzyme mutations to metabolize toxins in these products.Link: ABClocal.go.com

ABC (WLS-TV) - December 1, 2004 Dr. Martha Howard will be live discussing the top 10 ways to prevent and cure the flu this winter season with holistic remedies. With a shortage of flu shots this winter Dr. Howard offers a variety of alternative methods including the use of herbal supplements and essential oils.1. ABC (WLS-TV) - December 1, 2004 Dr. Martha Howard will be live discussing the top 10 ways to prevent and cure the flu this winter season with holistic remedies. With a shortage of flu shots this winter Dr. Howard offers a variety of alternative methods including the use of herbal supplements and essential oils.1. Stay Hydrated Increasing your fluid intake particularly water, can help prevent dehydration caused by fever, keeps the throat moist, and lessens the chance of the flu/virus becoming stronger.• Avoid iced drinks and cold foods in the winter. (This one's from Traditional Chinese Medicine)2. Reduce Stress Stress can increase your susceptibility to the flu virus and can increase the severity of the symptoms. Modify your lifestyle to ensure a low stress environment allowing for a stronger immune system. Visit www.Chicagohealers.com for information on other ways to reduce stress.3. Good Night's Rest Lack of sleep can lower your immune system. Getting a good night's sleep can keep your bodies defense mechanisms up to par.4. Exercise Regularly Regular exercise can lower stress and stimulate the immune system at the same time. Moderate exercise has also been known to aid in sleeping.5. Oscillococcinum Also known as Oscillo, is a homeopathic over-the-counter medication that helps to combat flu systems. Oscillo can be taken as a preventative measure to stop the flu before it shows up, as well as to eliminate the symptoms if taken immediately after experiencing typical flu symptoms.6. Take Vitamin and Herbal Supplements A daily dose from a multi-vitamin supplement can help enhance your immune system and prevent the flu virus as well as certain herbal supplements including:• Vitamin E supplements are known to enhance immune response.• Vitamin C supplements are useful in boosting the immune system.• Echinacea & Goldenseal are widely known and used to help promote a healthy immune system.• Astragalus often used in Chinese medicine, has many functions including boosting the immune system.• Black Edelberry root is also an immune enhancing herb that can be taken in supplemental form.7. Essential Oils Essential oils are a natural way to kill bacteria and germs that contribute to the spreading of the flu virus. Different combinations of oils can have many different uses including:• Combine tea tree oil and water in a spray bottle to help eliminate bacteria on phones and other public surfaces.• Put a drop of clove oil in your coffee or tea. Clove oil is known as one of the highest anti-oxidants known and will support the immune system and kill germs at the same time.• A drop of eucalyptus oil in a tea pot with hot water can help clear up sinuses.• Rubbing your hands regularly with a mixture of of lemon, cinnamon, clove, rosemary, and eucalyptus oils helps kill germs also allowing the oil to penetrate into the blood stream killing even more germs. Not only can in kill germs but it smells great and leaves hands soft.8. Take a Sauna Not only does the steam help loosen up the throat, inhaling steam that is very high in temperature can kill viruses and bacteria.9. Eliminate the Transfer of Bacteria Washing hands regularly can help keep bacteria away as well as avoid sharing glasses, cups, towels, food and silverware especially when in contact with sick people.10. Eat Foods Containing Phytochemicals "Phyto" means plants, and the natural chemicals in plants give the vitamins in food a supercharged boost. So eat dark green, red, and yellow vegetables and fruits to help boost the immune system.Others: 1. Eat Yogurt Eating a daily cup of low-fat yogurt can reduce your susceptibility to colds. The beneficial bacteria in yogurt can stimulate production of immune system substances that fight disease.2. Don't Smoke Even being around smoke can considerably worsen the immune system. Smoke dries out your nasal passages and paralyzes cilia. These are the delicate hairs that line the mucous membranes in your nose and lungs, and with their wavy movements, sweep cold and flu viruses out of the nasal passages.3. Cut Alcohol Consumption Alcohol can damage the liver which makes it harder for it to filter out bacteria. Alcohol also dehydrates you and takes more fluid out of your system then it puts in.4. Don't Touch Your Face Touching your face is a major way that flu germs and bacteria are spread. The eyes, nose and mouth are very susceptible to carrying germs.Link: ABClocal.go.com

More than just a source of happiness and a little friend to care for, human relationships with their household animals are nothing short of profound.Almost any pet owner will testify that the emotional connection they share with their pet can transcend into almost psychic territory. As wild as it sounds, these connections can actually be harnessed and cultivated further.

Chicago Wellness Magazine - Feb/Mar 2006Out with the old: Spring Cleaning for your BodyWe've all heard of spring cleaning the house we live in, but what about the body we live in? Just as our homes need to be rid of the dust and clutter which keep a home from running smoothly, our bodies, too, need to be "cleansed" of toxins that inhibit our bodies from functioning properly. Read recommendations from some of the top healing practitioners at ChicagoHealers.com on how to prepare your body for springtime.Detoxification Jeffery Kurtz, DC , AK, TBM, NETThe liver is one of the most important organs in the body. Its primary function is to filter the blood and does so at a rate of 2 quarts per minute. When the liver is not working properly it has a negative effect on the function of every other organ system. Toxins overrun the body and create harmful effects, sometimes permanently. Common symptoms of a toxic liver include migraines, constipation, bloating, weight control issues, blood sugar imbalances, PMS, allergies, fatigue, and many more...Herbal CleansingLisa Corrigan-Bilkey, MSOM, L.AcAccording to Traditional Chinese Medicine, the season of spring relates to the liver, making it a natural time for detoxification and internal cleansing. As the days grow longer and warmer, we naturally want to eat less, and consume more lightly cooked or raw foods...Colon HydrotherapyAnia Tyczynski, MA, CCTWithout properly functioning elimination organs, the body dies. Of all the processes essential to good health, elimination is one of the most important. The cleanliness of any tissue in the body depends upon the condition of the bowel. That's why it is the best to START tissue detoxification with a colon cleansing...HomotoxicologyFrank Yurasek, PhD, MScWhat is it? And why bother? Let's start with the second question, for which there are at least 3003 reasons. Smog, 60 million Americans exposed regularly to its deadly veil. Contaminated drinking water (and it's getting worse). No wonder gasoline sells for less per gallon than pure water. Then there are the 3,000 different chemicals that our food is exposed to, from field, through storage, processing, preserving, and finally to our table. If we were fish, we'd be swimming in a dirty tank. Enter Homotoxicology...Lymph DrainageMaureen Ballaff, CMTManual Lymph Drainage (MLD) is a method of massage therapy that uses a highly efficient approach to working with the lymphatic and other fluid systems of the body. The MLD therapist uses very delicate touches, using slow strokes simulating a wave-like movement on the lymph system that is deeply relaxing...

CBS (WBBM-TV) - January 8, 2005Gina Orlando, certified hypnotherapist, will be live discussing how hypnosis and EFT can be used to help achieve and maintain New Year's Resolutions as well as the basics behind these therapies. The discussion will take place on Saturday, January 8th at 8:15am.What is Hypnosis?The state of hypnosis is a natural relaxed mind state between waking and sleeping that heightens suggestibility. It is a time where the subconscious mind becomes available for new positive suggestions for desired behavior changes that you desire.What is EFT?EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) is another effective non-invasive technique that can be easily taught to a client to also get relief from negative emotions, pesky patterns, physical cravings, fears, old pain, physical discomfort and self-sabotaging memories and tendencies. EFT taps into the energy and nervous systems as the client gently taps on significant stress relief or acupressure points while focusing in on the problem and a solution.How can Hypnosis and EFT help with weight loss and quitting smoking?The reason hypnosis is so effective for achieving and maintaining weight loss, smoking cessation, exercise motivation and reduced stress is that the subconscious mind is where habits and emotions live and it's the part of the mind that runs all of the body's functions.Link: cbs2chicago.com

NBC (WMAQ-TV) - November 11, 2004Therese M Rowley will be talking about children who exhibit behavior that has been diagnosed as ADD/ADHD often have very sensitive nervous systems. That means that their environment and relationships play an even more important role in their development than is true for other children. NBC (WMAQ-TV) - November 11, 2004Therese M Rowley will be talking about children who exhibit behavior that has been diagnosed as ADD/ADHD often have very sensitive nervous systems. That means that their environment and relationships play an even more important role in their development than is true for other children. The external factors that parents have control over, including food, exercise, and entertainment choices, will go a long way to supporting a gentler experience for families who include these children. In addition, there are ways to help a child with their homework and educational experience so that it boosts learning and self esteem1. Food sensitivities include: milk and milk products; wheat; refined sugar and processed foods - especially those with preservatives and food coloring. Staying with organic fresh fruits, vegetables and grains are most helpful. Simple things can help, like putting out a tray of vegetables and dip on the table for after school snacks. Healthier alternatives to snacks and even dessert options are available through health food markets and even health-oriented restaurants. (like the Whole Foods, Wild Oats, Chicago Diner, Karyns, etc.).2. Exercise not only offers an outlet for the excess energy that many of these children exhibit, but exercise oxygenates the brain which is essential to the child's development. In addition, martial arts and yoga exercises - done at a very early age on - can help children focus better. These exercises also help coordination and bringing more into balance the speed of their energy with their body.3. Each child learns differently. If parents can continually notice and ask themselves, "What is my child good at? What is my child drawn to?" then they have one clue about how to help them with their homework. For example, if a child is more relationship-oriented than numbers oriented, then make the numbers into children or teddy bears and talk about math in those terms. It requires parents to apply their own imagination in interpreting homework in a way that most interests their child. There are even simple tools to help children feel more in control, like drawing a spiral and having the children trace the spiral with their fingers when they begin to feel overwhelmed.4. Studies are now showing that the less television the better for those under two years of age. Since these children have more sensitive nervous systems, violence and wildly fast video games may negatively impact them and make it even harder for them to focus. Entertainment that includes exercise and movement are best. The more peaceful their surroundings, the better able they are to cope with the noise and over-stimulation already going on inside them.Link: www.nbc5.com

These tend to irritate the digestive system and contribute to mental stress which can preoccupy drivers who need to focus on road safety. Other tips included keeping up with your supplements, reducing anger and anxiety with acupuncture and acupressure, and doing energy building exercises such as Tai Chi or yoga to improve the quality and free flow of Qi.
