The term “superfood” has become something of a marketing buzzword in recent years, and many processed food products will boast such ingredients. But don’t be fooled. Processing tends to denature nutrients, so what you end up with is typically a far inferior version compared to the real thing.
In 2002, Dr. George Stefano and Dr. John Beaulieu made an exciting discovery: Specific vibrations transferred to cells using tuning forks causes the spiking of nitric oxide. This release of nitric oxide sets off a cascade of physiological events that directly influences our health, well-being, state of mind, and consciousness. This article talks about how this happens and briefly why it is so important to people’s health.
Metabolic syndrome is an amorphous term used by the medical establishment to explain a cluster of biochemical and physiological abnormalities associated with the development of cardiovascular disease and type 2 Diabetes. These two diseases just happen to be on the top of the list of killers in the United States, and to a large extent, other countries as well. But when you combine these two diseases, it means more than half of all deaths in the US are preventable. How? Read further.

Inter-Stellar Frequencies may be Influencing YOU. Today’s scientists claim that our moon and sun influence our planet via the tides and magnetic stress upon the earth; and some even go so far as to agree that the moon affects our emotions and behavior. Since astronomers have concluded that frequencies are bombarding the earth every minute of every day in a cyclical pattern, I suggest that there are Key Notes associated with every day of the year.
These Key Notes seem to ooze in and out of direct influence every three days or so. Our new column, BioAcoustically Speaking, will post information about these Key Notes each week. We predict that this information will provide many ideas for maintenance of SELF HEALTH.
The shaping of our brain by our behavior offers us an extraordinary opportunity: While we cannot choose our genetic makeup, we can decide how we invest our time and energy. Maximizing our opportunities for a full life requires effort, discipline, and generosity. But the payoff more than equals the investment: In protecting the organ that largely determines how we negotiate and relate to the world, we can help assure that every stage of our lives is as rewarding as it can possibly be. Your brain is shaped by the life you live. The right mental, physical, and spiritual practices protect your mind, so you can have the very richest life possible.
The changing lifestyle and the desire to overpower each other has made people busy in their own working schedule.

If so, take a moment to watch this fun, eye-opening Ted Talk by Social Psychologist, Emily Balcetis.

It feels like muscle pain, but unlike a tight hamstring that makes you yelp when you stand up, your ache isn’t triggered by a particular movement, and you can feel it in different places at various times. The culprit could be your fascia (pronounced “fash-ya”), says Mary Ann Wilmarth, DPT, chief of physical therapy at Harvard University Health Services. This sheet of tissue, made up of densely packed protein fibers, weaves throughout the entire body, and it binds and supports your muscles, bones and even your organs. While bodywork specialists have been passionate about fascia for decades, Wilmarth says it took new research on how fascia and muscles work together (some of it presented at the first international fascia research conference at Harvard in 2007) to get different health pros — from orthopedists to MDs and pain experts to personal trainers — to catch on.

More and more we seem to strive for (and reward) extreme exercise. Pushing beyond our limits. Challenging ourselves to climb higher, run faster and farther, hop till you drop, “Just Do It”!
We scoff to think that a quiet walk in Nature, a leisurely bike ride or a gentle yoga class could keep us healthy and fit. Ayurveda would disagree. I wrote an article a while back called “All Exercise is Not Created Equal”. Please check it out to see how the different doshas are affected by exercise and Ayurveda’s recommendations.
