True Wellness and 4 'musts' to consider

True Wellness and 4 'musts' to consider

Most often we think about having the great relationship, the best job, the most money and the hottest looking body as things that will make us happy. But then we read a news article about the billionaire who killed himself or the most famous pop singer who became a drug addict. Having things doesn’t seem to add up to true wellness and they certainly don’t add up to bliss. They do add up to some comfort and less stress on some level so there is value for some of us in these things.

Keep Your Eyes Cool and Relaxed this Summer

Keep Your Eyes Cool and Relaxed this Summer

 

Your eyes are among the most important organs in your body. Ayurveda identifies all five elements within your eyes: earth (prithvi) — muscular part of the eye; fire (tejas) — the blood vessels; air (vayu) — the color; water (apu) — the white area; and space (akasha) — the tear ducts and channels. Alochaka Pitta is the subdosha of Pitta which governs outer and inner vision, or intuition.

Strengthen your body and mind: women and Alzheimer’s

Did you know that two-thirds of people diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease are women? And that we don’t know why? Maria Shriver founded The Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement™, a global alliance, to help find out. This month I participated in her annual Move for Minds event, a day focused on the mind/body connection and raising funds to wipe out Alzheimer’s. As Maria says, “Women are at the epicenter of the Alzheimer’s crisis. That’s why we must be at the heart of the solution.”

Real dangers in using aluminum foil

Real dangers in using aluminum foil

Since 2012, scientific studies (International Journal of Electrochemical Science and others) have conclusively proven that aluminum leaches into food when you cook your food in aluminum foil. Just how much appears to depend on how high a temperature you cook at and the acidity of the food you are cooking, as well as spices used. The higher the temperature, the more acidic the food and the more salt used, all increase absorption. This is one of the main ways you get aluminum into your system.

How to discover Who You Are

How to discover Who You Are

Who we are is always being reflected back to us in our interactions with others. We are only capable of seeing love in another if we experience that love in ourselves first. And the same goes for fear, anger, hatred, and judgement. Every person we meet is always evoking something within us. What we are seeing in the other is what is in us. Life is about projection and reflection. Our judgments of others are what is inside us.

Mold and What it is doing to You

Mold and What it is doing to You

What is it about the Mediterranean diet that is SO healthy?

Study after study reveals notable benefits of the Mediterranean diet for cancer, diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer’s  -- so many chronic diseases.
