Listen to Your Heart

Listen to Your Heart

Ever notice how we don’t pay attention to something until it breaks?  
Your heart is something that you may not think about – until it stops
working the way it should.   Unless you feel your heart start to race
or feel it pounding in your chest, you may not pay any attention to
it.  Thanks to the observation of National Heart Month and Valentine’s
Day in February, the heart may finally get the recognition it deserves
– at least this month.  But your heart works for you every month, every
day, and every minute.

Emergency or False Alarm?

Emergency or False Alarm?

       Have you ever felt so awful that you thought about seeking
emergency treatment, or became worried that an unspeakably, serious
event was about to occur?  Have you ever experienced an uncomfortable
wheezing or tightness in your chest, been nauseous for no reason, had a
headache that just wouldn’t quit, heard ringing in your ears, suffered
frequent sore throats, unusual rashes, hives, or swelling?  Do you know
what caused these symptoms? .

Are You Eating Healthy?

Are You Eating Healthy?

Are You Eating Healthy?

No one likes to be told what,
when, or how to eat.  When I ask patients to fill out a food diary,
which means writing down absolutely everything they put in their mouth
for a week, my popularity rating goes down – albeit temporarily.  They
often scowl, and ask what I mean by everything.  The reason for doing
this is because I want to take a look at their regular intake of food,
as well things that fall into a category that should actually be
considered recreational substances.  This category includes things that
even the most avid junk food eater wouldn’t consider a meal, yet they
are often consumed on a daily basis.  After doing this, people are
usually surprised at how little real food they eat.  Another question I
ask is if they know why they are eating.  This may seem like an odd
question, but it is actually very important.  Many people eat by the
clock, not by the body saying it’s time. .

Getting Your Beauty Sleep

Getting Your Beauty Sleep

Getting Your Beauty Sleep

        Some people look forward to that wonderful, dreamy state,
called sleep, at the end of a day.  Perhaps an escape from stress
filled lives, it provides the solace needed to get up and do it all
over again the next morning.  Although they may have trouble falling
asleep, or staying asleep, sleep is something very desirable.  Other
people don’t even like the idea of sleep, and are convinced that it is
a waste of time.  You probably know people like this.  They put off
sleep, waiting until they are almost ready to fall over before
intentionally placing their body in a horizontal position.  Don’t they
know that they need beauty sleep?

Bach Flowers to the Rescue

Bach Flowers to the Rescue

Feeling Blue? Bach Flowers to the Rescue

When healing from an illness or disease, it’s been observed that the
speed and degree of a patient’s healing is directly related to his or
her attitude.  My experience as a Certified Wellness Doctor shows this
to be true.  For example, if two patients start treatment at
approximately the same time with similar problems, the patient with the
best attitude heals the quickest.  No matter what the prognosis, the
patient with a positive attitude responds the best to any type of
treatment.  The patient with a poor attitude tends to fail, while
denying any responsibility for his or her failure.  Trying to get
patients to really, truly comprehend the importance of their attitude
when it comes to healing is not easy.  A question always asked in my
profession is, “How can we help people change their attitudes in order
to have the most positive outcome?.

Leprechauns and The End of the Rainbow

Leprechauns and The End of the Rainbow

Leprechauns and The End of the Rainbow

These days, there are lots of people looking for their pot of gold at
the end of the rainbow.  For some, that pot of gold may be money.  For
others, it may be a job or a relationship.  Each of us defines just
what that pot of gold is for ourselves.  Finding the pot of gold at the
end of the rainbow has always been challenging.  Besides, there are
usually leprechauns involved, so it’s tricky!  According to legend,
finding the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow is as elusive as the
leprechauns who may be guarding it to prevent you from obtaining it. 
Folklore says that leprechauns are nearly impossible to catch, as they
are known to be cunning and quick, perhaps even invisible.  But if you
hold them in your gaze, they cannot move and trick you.

Uncovering the Mysteries of Attraction

Uncovering the Mysteries of Attraction

February is a month of love and romance – with lots of traditions revolving around Valentine’s Day. Although card stores and flower venders heavily advertise these traditions, participating in these traditions doesn’t have to be akin to supporting the economy on a purely commercial level, as many significant others with poor memories for important dates often insist! Whether you consider Valentines Day to be a “Hallmark holiday” or not, it’s a good time to show that special someone a special gesture of caring…
