Health Tip: Heal heartburn with cider vinegar - Sip 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar mixed with 8 ounces of water before every meal, and experts say you could shut down painful bouts of heartburn in as little as 24 hours. “Cider vinegar is rich in malic and tartaric acids, powerful digestive aids that speed the breakdown of fats and proteins so your stomach can empty quickly, before food washes up into the esophagus, triggering heartburn pain,” explains Joseph Brasco, M.D.

Quotes and health tip of the day... 11/19/13

Go into yourself.
Find what commands you.
This is important.

Trust your instincts, not your fears.

Your mind reacts to
outside circumstances
and causes you pain.
Be the master of mind,
not the slave of your mind.
     ~Angie Ducharme

“…exhale, relax, slide that mind of yours
back into the rear-brain, ask your Big Self
what’s next and see what it tells you to do
to have the most fun and score the biggest success 
during the next phase of the journey.”
     ~ Stephen Russell, The Barefoot Doctor

Health Tip: Cough and congestion? Go straight to the spice cabinet!
One-quarter teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon honey
1 garlic clove

How it works: The garlic and honey work as antimicrobial agents.  Cinnamon is warming to the circulatory system and the honey also helps to soothe a throat that is sore from coughing.

Quotes and health tip of the day... 11/18/13

In silence we move from 
unknowing into knowing, 
from darkness to illumination.
When we follow 
the breath into the body, 
we invite light into the shadows.
     ~ adapted, Liz Huntly

As you turn your attention inwards, 
give yourself a few moments 
to observe the facts of your life 
for which you are grateful.

Health Tip: The truth really does lie in eating 6-8 servings a day of fruits and vegetables. So many food products in the market place may claim to be health foods which are not really good for us. Healthier foods may cost a little more now, but continuing to eat the American SAD diet will cost us much much more later on. Think about it… ~Dr. Pamela Jeanne

It will vanish for lack of participation...

When we realize that the actions of others can only affect us by our reactions and resistance, the evil of the world will vanish for lack of participation. Don't line up energetically to that which you do not like. Line up energetically with how you would like it to be. Imagine it differently. Speak of it differently. Tell a different story.

You are perfect...

Wild Geese 

“You do not have to be good.

You do not have to walk on your knees

For a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.

You only have to let the soft animal of your body

love what it loves.”      by Mary Oliver

You are perfect in your wholeness. 
Your wholeness includes your scars, 
your weaknesses, your mood swings, 
the days of your life you’d rather 
pull the covers up over your head and stay in bed.
You are perfect in your wholeness.
