Common Illnesses Trace Back to Essential Nutrients. Are You Getting Yours?

Tell me, how are you feeling today? As vital as you’d like, or run down and fatigued? Do you feel like you need more sleep? Do you have unexplained but ongoing aches and pains?

Neglecting your winter health and not taking good care of your body also lay a foundation for a weakened immune system which poses a greater risk of falling ill.

Breath-Generated Emotions

“Life is Not Measured By The Number of Breaths We Take. But By The Moments That Take Our Breath Away.”*   The opening line of the above quote references an Eastern belief, which holds that we’re given a certain amount of ‘prana’, a delightful word encompassing oxygen and energy, to use in our life.

Reiki – Therapeutic Touch For Energy, Peace And Healing

Whether you’re an ardent supporter of traditional “Western” medicine, a passionate follower of “alternative” therapies, or somewhere in between, there’s no denying that energy nourishes and maintains us. This energy comes from the food we eat, and also, if you’re a believer in natural healing, from the universe around us. This universal energy is the key component of Reiki, a Japanese healing art now widely practiced in many countries around the world. Reiki is not an “out there” type of...
