Releasing What No Longer Serves You

Having the courage to let go of what is no longer needed or serves you in your life helps make the space for something new to emerge, even if you can not see it yet. Our expectations, worries and fears of what’s to come keep us bound from fully living in the present moment and enjoying the process, appreciating what we do have. Our world as we know it is changing at a rapid pace. Important to declutter and let go from the inside out so we can find an inner freedom, lighten the load and bring our best versions of ourselves to make our world a more loving place to be.

Benefits of Walk-In Tubs

As we age and begin to lose our mobility and sense of balance, bathing can not only become difficult but can also put us at risk of falls. Having a walk-in tub installed in our home can allow us to live more independently, and there are many styles and options to choose from. In addition, walk-in tubs allow us to enjoy the soothing experience of soaking in a warm bath, which can help stimulate circulation, improve sleep quality, and provide some relief from pain caused by various health conditions like arthritis, fibromyalgia, and chronic back pain.

Laughter is the Best Medicine

“Now, what are you planning to do about that excess weight you’re carrying around:” the doctor asked the patient. “I just can’t seem to lose it, the man said “Must be an overactive thyroid.” “The tests show your thyroid is perfectly normal,” the doctor said. “If anything is overactive, it’s your fork.”

Getting Enough Vitamin D?

It’s impossible to get your daily dose of vitamin D through diet alone, even with fortified foods. Vitamin D is known as the “sunshine vitamin,” since our body produces vitamin D naturally through direct exposure to sunlight. Just 10 minutes a day of mid-day sun is plenty. However, we may not get a sufficient amount of vitamin D through the sun alone in the winter months, so taking a vitamin D supplement might be necessary. Speak to your doctor and pharmacist about how to safely get enough vitamin D for your specific health needs.

Cordless Phones – The Elephant in the Room

While most people have heard the connection to EMF exposure and cell phones, few think twice about the cordless phone sitting by your nightstand. These phones are now almost always DECT (Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunication) phones. Almost all DECT base stations send microwave radiation 24 X 7 and can account for a large portion of the wireless exposure in a home. Many scientists believe that this disrupts our brain’s intercellular signaling which accounts for many of the adverse health effects that people experience. For a more restful sleep, these phones should have no place in a sleeping area such as a bedroom – and better yet – think of switching these over to a hard-lined (old style corded) phone.

Immune Support in the Summer

Summer is upon us, but we still need to support good immune system health. Here are some helpful tips: 1) Keep sugar low in the diet by making your own sun tea, slushy drinks, or smoothies. 2) Eat lots of salads with fruit and nuts to provide some hidden hydration. 3) Check your city for local outdoor events, such as qi gong, tai chi or yoga in the park. This is a great way to get some exercise and promote good breathing to support a relaxed parasympathetic nervous system. 4) Finally, don’t forget about getting enough high-quality sleep!
