An article in last weeks USA Today snagged my attention to an alarming situation that is becoming all too familiar.  I had a client who came into see me recently for stress reduction.  In the course of our conversation she shared with me her concern that her twin daughters, age 6 where beginning to develop breast.  She had contacted their pediatrician and asked if this was something she needed to have checked.  They asked her to bring the girls in to be checked assuring her it was...

Back in a February blog entry I elaborated on one of the essentials of life, HUGS.  Since that blog entry I have tried to make sure that I get my 5 hugs a day.  I have also encouraged my clients to start with the hug I give them and get 4 additional hugs that day.  It really does make a difference.  In fact I wanted to share a personal experience I had last week. 

After an exceptionally great day, I was feeling happy, I had received my 5 hugs + that day.  I was standing by the...

Are you one of the nearly 4o million Americans who suffer from arthritis?  If so, there is help.  Many people feel they have to live with the pain and difficulties of this disease with minimal help from drugs.  This is not true.  According to the Arthritis Foundation and "ARTHRITIS- The Alternative Medicine Definitive Guide" there is help.

Arthritis is a general term used to describe a grouping of health conditions which manifest symptoms of pain and stiffness, causing a decrease in...

Have you noticed that nearly every day a story comes along in the media about the toxic side effects of living in today's world? If it isn't chemicals, it is pesticides, if not pesticides, it is heavy metals, or electrical disturbances. In my last post I spoke of the amazing benefits of the Far Infrared Sauna in regards to detoxification of the body.  Because toxins are such a large part of our downfall in health I wanted to give you another tool you can add to your tool box of easy ways to...

Celiac disease is becoming more widely understood by both the medical profession as well as the public.  Many are familiar with the common symptoms such as:  Chronic diarrhea, gas, bloating, acid reflux or constipation.  But recent studies have shown a close relationship between Celiac disease and infertility. 

According to the Center For Disease Control, in 2005, 2.1 million or 7.4% of married women were dealing with infertility issues.  (Unable to conceive when trying to for 12...

As we enjoy the "March Madness" fever of college basketball, watching some incredible athletes run, shoot, and make amazing shots, keeping us on the edge of our sofas we can't help but wonder, were they born with that natural ability or did they spend hour after fatiguing hour to develop it? 

Numerous youth & parents watch as agile, talented athletes of both genders, and multiple ethnic backgrounds compete in sports ranging from track and field to football, lacrosse to baseball...

If you were asked to guess what healthy habit most people are NOT including in their life style, what would your answer be?  Take a guess and then continue reading.

I found it interesting that the February issue of "Self" magazine, last Sunday's edition of the Vancouver Globe and Mail, and last month in the Washington Post authors all addressed this incredibly healthy habit.  And yet as mentioned in the article in "Self" only 13% of their readers are taking advantage of meditation...

If asked the question, "What are the 6 basic essentials of life", could you answer the question?  Most of us would start with 1) Air, 2) Water, 3) Food, 4) Shelter, 5) Clothing.  But what about number six?  There are researchers who say the sixth basic essential of every humans life is HUGS. 

Yes, that simple, free, completely natural, organic, zero calorie, action when two people embrace.  Or as Mr. Webster himself defines, to grasp tightly in the arms, to cling firmly and fondly to...

You thought it was good for you.  You thought you were doing your body a favor by doing it.  But once again, we were fooled by the marketing companies.  Like many Americans who have been purchasing bottled water rather than drinking tap water you felt it would help in your quest for overall health.  The Environmental Working Group, EWG, has recently published their report findings on the study of 10 major bottled water companies.  You will definitely want to read the report.

How are you doing on that resolution to loose weight and get in shape?  The first few days were great, right?  Then came day three and four and the cravings started gnawing at your brain like a teenager wanting to borrow the car on Friday night.  You kept them at bay and did pretty good for the first week.  The reward was noted on the scale and you felt like 2011 would be the year you finally mastered your goal.

The second week was actually easier than the first.  You've overcome...
