“Be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars. In the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul.” ~Max Ehrmann
We give and give but if the energy is not replenished, we start to feel like there isn’t any more to give. The more we are nourished, the more we can do, be, love!
EXERCISE DAILY. Even a simple walk. It gets the blood, lymph and cerebrospinal fluid moving and produces endorphins so inside and out, you will be healthier and happier. WHY IS WALKING IMPORTANT? Your lymph is the sewage system for cellular metabolic toxins. Lymph nodes provide antigens for purifying fluids containing anything from allergens to cancer cells. That fluid is called lymph. There is more lymph in your body than blood, but there is no pump for lymph. Learn more: Five easy ways to detox lymph nodes and boost your immune system
Natural Alternatives Better than Drugs for Health and Healing!
Historically, a Chinese Doctor was paid a retainer to keep their patients healthy. If a patient became sick, the doctor would not be paid until the patient’s health returned. A doctor that resorted to surgery was considered an inferior doctor. If he/she did their job correctly and helped their clients stay healthy, there would be no need to perform surgery.
Naturopathic medicine is a complete alternative care system that uses a wide range of approaches such as nutrition, herbs, manipulation of the body, exercise, stress reduction, and acupuncture. Parts of naturopathy are sometimes used as complementary therapy along with mainstream medicine. Naturopathic medicine is a holistic approach (meaning it is intended to treat the whole person) that tries to enlist the healing power of the body and nature to fight disease.
Look at all the money and time we spend on M.D.’s and the percentage of healing we actually get.
Doesn’t this sound intuitively better? Naturopathic practitioners have a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine (ND) degree from a four-year graduate medical college with admission requirements comparable to conventional medical schools. The ND degree requires graduate-level study in conventional medical sciences, such as cardiology, biochemistry, gynecology, immunology, pathology, pharmacology, pediatrics, and neurology. In addition to the standard medical curriculum, naturopathic students must do extensive coursework in natural therapeutics. This includes therapies from the sciences of clinicalnutrition, botanical medicines, homeopathy, physical medicine, exercise therapy, lifestyle counseling, and hydrotherapy, which is the use of water to treat a disorder or disease.
WARNING: TOPICAL PRODUCTS WE USE DAILY
The average American woman uses 12 personal care products per day, resulting in exposure to more than 120 chemicals, many of which are likely linked to cancer, birth defects, asthma, allergies and other health related problems. Link to article:
EXAMPLE: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate corrodes hair follicle and impedes hair growth: in 90% of commercial shampoo and conditioner. In car wash soap, engine degreaser, toothpaste, creams, lotions and garage floor cleaners. Penetrates eyes, brain, liver kidneys and remains there long-term. Degenerates cell membranes, can change the genetic information (mutagenic) in cells and damage immune system. May cause blindness and lead to cataracts. Retards the eye’s healing process. Studies also show that these additives react with the ingredients of food supplements or cosmetics to form carcinogenic nitrates and dioxin. All of this may enter the circulatory system with each use. These harmful ingredients can be retained in the liver, heart, eyes, kidneys and muscles for several years. Also reported to cause eye irritations, skin rashes, hair loss, dandruff and allergic reactions. *Often found pet shampoo. Learn About SLS Free Products – SLS Free
