Continuing Our 12-Stage Journey to Wellness
This week our journey focuses on the power of COMMUNICATING, the 9th of 12 keys to wellness drawn from the Wellness Inventory whole person assessment program. This section focuses almost exclusively on verbal communication, exploring the dynamics of how people talk to themselves and one another. It also looks at the breakdowns in communication that can occur. As you come to understand and appreciate this process, you may simultaneously understand and appreciate yourself. The clearer the channel (you), the better the possibilities for a meaningful encounter--a dynamic energy exchange. View more
Many languages use the same word for both breath and spirit, or life force. In "Breathe for Life" John W. Travis, M.D., M.P.H., encourages you to start paying attention to your breathing as a form of relaxation, stress reduction, and healing. Breathing consciously not only will relieve tension and help quiet any fear, it can also relieve pain. So before you reach for the aspirins, the antacid tablets, or the telephone to call your doctor, do
some breathing. View more

From Fatigued to Fantastic
Inflammation is your body's response to what it perceives to be an outside invader or irritant. When caused by infections, the inflammation can sometimes be rather obvious as occurs with pneumonia. Other times, it can be very subtle. If you have excess inflammation, your body can often repair the damage over time, according to Jacob Teitelbaum, MD in "Inflammation - Natural Therapies". This means decreasing sugar and simple carbohydrates (keep chocolate but make it sugar free), increasing protein and healthy oils (e.g. fish, olive, nuts), and getting optimal nutritional support.
Healthy Alternatives - Flower Remedies
The notion that stress can predispose us to physical illness has persisted for centuries. In "Natural Substances Offer New Hope For Stress Relief" Leslie J. Kaslof states that a less known option for those searching for safe, nonhabit forming alternatives to chemical drugs, natural stabilizing factors can be found in flowering plants. He matches specific emotional difficulties with various flower remedies. View more
Involuntary urination is ironically a problem experienced at both ends of a person's life, both during infancy and aging. Older adults have difficulty with bladder control usually because of either urinary tract disease, nervous system dysfunction, allergic response, ruptured disk, or psychological stress. Women tend to experience involuntary urination after childbirth, surgery, or inflammation of the urethra, while men tend to get it if they have a prostate problem. In "Homeopathic Medicines For Involuntary Urination" Dana Ullman, M.P.H. explains the common causes of this condition, and outlines homeopathic remedies that may resolve the problem, rather than just eliminate the symptom.

Raw Food Materia Medica - Cherimoya
Cherimoya, also known as "Custard apple" is native to the tropics of South America. Its genus name is from an ancient Incan word, annona and means "year's harvest."

Inside the spiky yellow green skin is a lush white flesh with a delicious flavor, similar to a combination of banana, blueberry and pineapple. Cherimoyas are cooling.

Mind Over Matter
Living in a fast-paced society takes it's toll, yet isn't there more to living than simply existing? In "Feeling Good: Reaching the Top of Your Game" Barry Bittman, M.D. challenges you to make attitude adjustments and take time for introspection to uncover what is needed for the delicate balance that enables you to feel your best. Playing the game of life with greater ease and joy than you've ever imagined is certainly worth the effort.
Echoes of Silence
Our conditioned, patterned way of living may be disrupted by the unexpected. An accident, a sudden reversal of fortune, or the death of a loved one. Another way in which disruption may appear in our lives is through grace, an encounter with someone who has been overwhelmed by reality and who naturally projects that inner state out into the world, where it is experienced by others. In "Welcome Epiphanies" Robert Rabbin shares a personal example of this.
