Vitamin N, Being in Nature is Good for Your Health

August 2, 2013


I have long believed that spending time in Nature has had great benefits for my health.  I have hiked, biked, kayaked and camped all my life. I walk every day. It brings me rejuvenation, restoration and peace to be where things are green and natural. This recent Chatelaine article goes into great detail as to why.

Antibiotics and your Health

July 3, 2012

ImageAntibiotic resistance is the ability of a microorganism to withstand the effects of an antibiotic.  Multiresistant strains become  superbugs. Science Daily outlines the many ways that antibiotic resistance has grown to be the threat it is to our health today.

Overuse of broad-spectrum antibiotics, unnecessary prescriptions, improper use of antibiotics by patients, and the introduction of antibiotics  into our food through livestock have all hastened the resistance to antibiotics of infections that can kill.

In order to effect change in this cycle of antibiotic abuse we can eat organic meat, rest when we do become ill, resist the temptation to take a pill for every cough and cold, exercise and support our constitution with homeopathic and natural health care.

Food Safety and Your Health

June 14, 2012

“The resin linings of tin cans contain Bisphenol-A, corn-fed cows are more susceptible to E-Coli colonization in their stomachs, perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), in the lining of microwave popcorn bags are part of a class of compounds that may be linked to infertility in humans, root vegetables absorb herbicides, pesticides, and fungicides”.  These are just some of the problems in our food supply discussed by Ecokaren and Liz Vaccariello at Prevention Magazine.

The solution to food supply problems is to be careful, careful to eat as much organically grown food as possible, watch the containers your food comes in, buy food preserved and bottled in glass, research where food comes from, grow your own if you can.  Pop your own organically grown pop corn.

If you’re are trying to be careful about where you spend your organic dollars, buy organic animal products (meat and dairy) as they concentrate toxins and pesticides in their tissues and especially in their fats.  As well factory raised animals are fed a steady diet of antibiotics, a main source of antibiotic resistant strains of superbugs and other health complications.  If we live healthy, the time we put in adds time and quality to our lives.  A good nutritional foundation is one of the best supports you can have for your homeopathic treatment.

Meditation and Tools for Self-care with Kelly Gordon

This workshop is for those who want to learn how to stimulate the body’s own natural healing abilities with gentle movement and meditation. We will incorporate key principals from Energy Work and focus on deepening mind-body synchronization and developing your kinesthetic sense of energy. Experience an introduction into blending energy work with mindfulness meditation, learn more about your nervous system and gain new tools to help you deepen your yoga, dance or bodywork practice.

Explore the benefits of the healing art of homeopathy with Anika Harrer & Ming Dinh

Homeopathy is a powerful healing system that is uniquely able to restore health and well-being by correcting the energetic imbalance that lies at the core of all illness.  This workshop will provide you with a basic understanding of health and disease from a holistic perspective.  Discover how constitutional treatment by a homeopath can stimulate your body’s own defense mechanism, and how homeopathic remedies treat the individual person rather than the disease.  Learn how homeopathy can be used effectively as a means of self-care at home for yourself and your family.  You will leave with simple first aid and acute remedy knowledge, and a homeopathic first aid remedy to be added to your own kit.
