They heat a thin laser probe-up to 130 degrees-then insert it through a tiny hole and essentially burn the tumor. It works by heating the tissue around it to the point where it cooks, just like you’re cooking a hard boiled egg. Traditional surgery requires a three-inch incision, two to four days in the hospital and one to two months of recovery. With the laser procedure – it’s a three-quarter inch incision, one day in the hospital, and one to two week recovery.
Autism is a developmental disorder that initially occurs in early childhood. It generally affects a child’s language, behavior, and social skills in development. The exact cause is unknown, but some reasons may include medications taken during pregnancy, exposure to toxins, infections, immunizations, inflammation, leaky gut, nutrient deficiencies, food allergies, and inborn errors of metabolism.
I’m sure all of us cut ourselves at some point during our childhood and the first thing we did was to rush directly to our mothers for help. She may have addressed this seemingly devastating trauma at the time with all of her attention, a small detailed examination followed by soap and water, some calm reassuring words, a warm embrace, and then a Band-Aid. At that moment, the pain very likely went away…and you ‘felt’ better. What you experienced was likely your first conscious experience of the placebo response. Here is why.
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.
Robin Williams was one of our most beloved, talented, and celebrated actors and, among other things, showed us how comedians could step out from behind their funny personae and tackle, successfully, dramatic and other roles. This helped to open doors to so many that came after him and is just one way that he touched lives so very deeply.
How could something as simple as tapping deliver profound, lasting results on issues ranging from stress relief and chronic pain, to phobias and overeating?
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.
Don’t let the simplicity of this hot flash-reducing exercise fool you. Donna Eden has worked with thousands of woman in her workshops over the years and this exercise has been very effective for menopausal women. In the comments section on the youtube page for this video, one female viewer remarked, “I tried this and it worked great! I did it twice when I felt a hot flash startng and it went away! Thank you!” and another said, “I love little hints like this… so simple… so effective!”
The news: It turns out meditating is good for more than just quiet time: It can actually help us fight the cripplingly high stress levels we experience during our busy lives, in the office or elsewhere. Scientists from Harvard University and the University of Sienna recently found that meditation is so powerful it can change the physiology of a person’s brain, resulting in positive changes like a decrease in anxiety and depression.
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.
According to Ayurveda, even the most deadly disease would never affect a person in ‘good health’.
Here are 10 sure-fire ways to make sure you are that person.
Grounding yourself is a mechanism by which you’re able to stabilize your energies, center your mind, and focus on the moment. As a result, you’re able to take a deep breath, step back, and focus on you for that very moment – no matter the time and place.
We are leaving behind the warm bright light of summer and early fall and headed towards the dark cold days and nights of late autumn and winter. We needn’t be afraid of the dark for there is beauty in the dark, as well. If the seed didn’t rest in the dark cool earth, there would be no blooming flower to greet us in the spring.
Just like Mother Nature, we need to honor our own cycles and rhythms. I have learned to love (or at least appreciate!) the cold dark winter months which are approaching here in the Northeast. I know many of you shudder at this thought and are perhaps frantically making plans to get out of town. But I like to burrow in, read and write, deepen my sleep, and concentrate on nurturing myself – body, mind and spirit. This year I hope to do a silent retreat somewhere deep in Nature.
One of the biggest intellectual roadblocks to overcome in healing ourselves, or even understanding the Universe fully, is based on this assumption: that our genes determine our reality, or the likelihood our lives and health will follow a predetermined path.
