What is Applied Kinesiology?

0

I am a chiropractor and I use a technique called Applied Kinesiology (AK). In this newsletter, I will discuss AK, and how it differs from other types of medicine.  What is Applied Kinesiology? Explaining Applied Kinesiology can be challenging. I’ve been grappling with it since I began practicing it in 2003, the year I first started practicing it. To further compound things, most people don’t pronounce it correctly! (ki·ne·si·ol·o·gy – kəˌnēsēˈäləjē,-zē-/).  A typical scenario of trying to describe AK might play out like this: you have a friend who hasn’t felt right for the past year or so.  She’s always tired…

Spring Is for Transformation

0

Spring is a great time for transformation and new beginnings. It’s also a time for your mind to bloom. For those living in cold climates, the winter months are often spent inside, in self-protection mode, so spring is a season when you can shed all your layers. In order to facilitate transformation and new beginnings, you’ll need to let go of old, unhealthy patterns and embrace new, positive energy.  During my childhood, spring meant the blossoming of the cherry-blossom tree that sat on our front lawn. I have vivid memories of sitting on the falling blossoms and feeling the…

Elevating Life – Inside Out!

0

Each of us strives to upgrade our life every passing year. Particularly with every new year, we all aim to do something which shall make our lives better in some way. Since we are not sure what it is that will certainly make it better, we are throwing arrows everywhere assuming it will hit the target at least in some direction. Evolving is a continuous process. As humans, we learn every day even though it doesn’t seem so. We mature and grow over the years with our experiences and our own will to improve. In this worldly world, it is…

Fasting and juice cleansing can be a terrific source of vitality and a great healing tool, when applied to the right individuals and health issues. A good cleanse can remove congestion and toxins, and help you feel more youthful. If your energy is good, but you want to be even healthier, this is a worthwhile approach to a higher level of health. For those of you who are in mid-life and find yourself slowing down more than you want, this can actually remove some of the signs of aging. I have had many positive experiences since I did my first…

ARE YOU AT RISK FOR AN AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE?

0

50 million Americans suffer from autoimmune diseases costing almost 100 million dollars a year. It’s a growing number. And while you may believe that you’re healthy, eat well and “never get sick” you could have autoimmunity – a pre-diagnosable disease state. Any autoimmune disease always begins with autoimmunity – where the body’s immune response attacks healthy cells and tissues, glands and organs eventually manifesting into a full-blown disease. Put simply, the body has misidentified a part of itself as a foreign invader and mistakenly attacks it. According to John Hopkins University’s Autoimmune Disease Research Center, autoimmune diseases are a special…

How to Survive Change…You Didn’t Ask For

CHANGE TRUTH Change Isn’t the Enemy, Fear Is Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less. —Marie Curie I met a woman recently who told me a story that really concerned me. Jan’s gardening business had dried up, she’d been living on her savings, and she was down to her last $500. One of her clients had called, letting her know of an opening as a receptionist in her husband’s office that she knew Jan could fill. “He was looking for someone right away,” Jan explained to me, “and I was about to go visit…

Wake up Awake: Get Quality Sleep

0

I’m co-leading a Montauk Sleepscape Retreat in early May. I love Montauk, the ocean, and my sleep! The true reason I’m doing it is that I’m passionate about cracking the code around why quality sleep eludes so many of us. I have struggled with this myself for decades and have a first-hand understanding of the ramifications of interrupted and/or short nights. Social activities, late meals, mindless TV, email and work all-nighters were part of my regular repertoire for decades. Even as a kid, I would sneak a flashlight and stay up late reading or playing a game. I didn’t need no stickin…

Reconnecting with the Earth

0

Excerpt from Healing Magic- a Green Witch Guidebook to Conscious Living-10th anniversary edition, North Atlantic Books, 2014) As we head into the spring season, we are not the only ones waking up, the trees, plants and flowers are all ready to show themselves to us. I’ve spent more than thirty years teaching people about edible and medicinal plants that live everywhere we do—in our backyards, open lots, and city parks. Herbal medicine is effective—it works—and that’s one significant reason I teach it. Underneath that, though, is another reason: Reacquainting people with the plants themselves, and the birds and animals, is equally…

The Evidence for Nature’s Healing Powers

0

In this excerpt from Change Your Story of Your Health: Using Shamanic and Jungian Techniques for Healing, Carl Greer, PhD, PsyD, writes about the healing powers of nature and how we can integrate its benefits into the new story of our health and wellness…. Many people have intuited that nature has healing powers, but now researchers are discovering more about how our bodies and minds benefit from our interactions with nature. When it comes to scientific and medical research, some of the positive effects of nature are measured by study participants’ self-reporting. Others are measured by lower blood pressure or…
