Are Antibiotics damaging our Immune Systems?

Two new international studies have shed further light on some of the harmful side effects associated with antibiotics – including damage to the immune system, and memory problems caused by a lack of growth in new brain cells. The findings serve as a reminder that while antibiotics can be powerful allies for the human body in the fight against disease, they can also do more harm than good if used in the wrong situations (one of many reasons you should always follow the advice of your medical professional). Both studies found that the way antibiotics kill off microbes in the gut can cause health issues, due to the way the delicate chemical mixes in our bodies can be thrown out of balance by th

Healthy Habits - Meditation & Music

This month we are talking about getting out of summer mode’s less than health habits and returning to a more sedate health routine. I am going to focus my article on a habit we seldom start but is one we need to move from summer seldom use to all year meditation while listening to music. As part of my preparation to return to healthy habits I thought I would take a nice Sunday afternoon nap but my back was barking at me. Not unusual just “barkier” than usual. After a while I go up and headed to the couch still tired. I contemplated sitting down with my current book about a British sea captain during the French Revolution, watch a movie on Amazon Prime, or listen to music on my iPad. Oddl

September, Stability and Sacrums

September is frequently a time of getting back to stable routines....summer vacations are done, the Labor Day holiday has happened, people sort of breathe and have mixed feelings about being glad the time of stability is here, and fun memories of spontaneous, in the flow days. In my world, sacrums, or tailbone, the triangle bone at the base of your spine store and process stability. I find that when our lives, individually and collectively, have a lot of shifts going on it shows up in our sacrum. Sometimes it looks like low back pain or tension. Sometimes it looks like "old age"....creaking, moving slower, having a harder time getting out of bed. Of course, morning always comes too early

Tips on Healthy Family Habits

Children are back to school, and even if you don’t have any children in school, it is time to turn our focus to autumn as the daylight gets shorter, the air cools and we get back to our routines. This is a good time to add some healthy routines which we may not have done before. Now that summer picnics of hot dogs, hamburgers and potato salad menus are done, this is the perfect time to start eating healthier foods. Be prepared to have healthy snacks on hand like cut up vegetables or fruits, hard boiled eggs or a container of tuna salad. Plan healthier breakfasts with yogurt or whole grain cereal, and meals with late seasonal vegetables to make stews and soups. This is a good time to p
