“What happens in the cosmos above affected life below on earth below.”  ~unknown~

Do you understand how true this quote is and how it relates to your health? Well, have you noticed that when the seasons change, you suffer with allergies or flu-like symptoms like sniffling and sneezing, unexplained headaches, muscle and joint pain? Do you want to sleep more, feel sluggish, have that foggy head, feeling fatigue and your bowels change? Do you sometimes associate these symptoms with some kind of communicable virus or attribute it to age? Think again. We are energy beings and connected to all energies on and above our planet. As we gain understanding about the connection between the changes in the spring and fall seasons, we can better support our bodies during these atmospheric energy changes.

Meteorologists and astronomers are known for studying and tracking seasonal changes. I’m no astrological expert or meteorologist, but there is plenty of evidence to support the connection between the s...

With so much conflicting information bombarding us about what food is “good” and what’s “bad,” we’re easily overwhelmed with choices. Some of the recommended regimens for various illnesses can seem overly restrictive—threatening to take the joy out of eating. Other recommendations just seem too difficult, relying on exotic ingredients that are expensive and hard to find, or preparations that are too tedious and time-consuming for a sick person to handle.

Dr. Sushrut Jangi, an instructor of Medicine at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, MA, posted an article entitled “The Nutrition Gap” stating how there is a disconnect between how patients and clinicians perceive diet in this country. “In America,” he says, “where the pharmaceutical industry is king, many doctors dismiss nutritional therapies as quack medicine.” Peruse the internet about nutrition and health and you’ll find that many people agree with him a...

Lemons and Cancer

Did you know that the whole lemon, including its peel, is a miraculous product for killing cancer cells?  While this claim isn’t endorsed by the Food and Drug Administration, there have been several studies that purport to show a strong basis for using lemons to combat cancer. It should also be noted that there are conflicting reports detailing that, while lemons and other citrus fruits have cancer-fighting properties, exactly how effective they are against specific types of cancer has yet to be accurately determined. While the connection between lemons and cancer is not yet fully appreciated, it is quite clear that lemons have some clear benefits that cannot be ignored.  

One of the amazing benefits in using lemon therapeutically is that lemon extract only destroys malignant cancer cells and it does not affect healthy cells.  “Cancer is America's leading cause of death for people under the age of 85. Think about that for a second. Approximately 40% of men and wome...

Becoming healthy and maintaining good health is much more than following the doctor’s orders or taking the right pharmaceuticals, agreeing to surgical procedures, chemotherapy, radiation or other invasive treatments. We must remember that our health is largely up to us. Taking proper care of our body, mind, and spirit can keep us in optimum health.  The choices we make, on a daily basis, can lead to more vibrant health or can lead to a never-ending struggle with chronic illnesses and diseases and everything between the two extremes. When we’re sick, we must take a holistic approach, which includes eating the right foods, consuming natural herbal remedies, and exercising to achieve a sense of health and well-being.  Unfortunately, too many of us fail to recognize the importance of these lifestyle practices in the achievement of overall good health. Too many of us have come to depend on the medical industry to “treat symptoms, not heal our ailments”- leaving us sicker than ever.
