Join the Conscious Revolution!
Every few years, a new fad enters the world of Nutrition that takes a stronghold for a while. Be it Atkins or Cabbage soup, it is pushed via the hype machine until the realities come to the forefront that all is not as advertised.
The "newest" approach is detoxification. (Of course, detox methods are thousands of years old and have a long and celebrated history as an effective therapy when used properly.)
Funny how three simple words can make a…Continue

Conflict and fighting are not synonymous. Although they very often go hand-in-hand, disagreements need not end up as arguments, fights, or physical altercations. A conflict is simply two forces in opposition: a husband and wife disagree on where to spend their vacation; you support the Republican party, your friend is a staunch Democrat; best friends listen to…Continue

They are popping up virtually everywhere. Crossfit centers are the "in" way to train these days. High intensity training, taken to the extreme. Proponents say it is the best way to get in shape and lose fat. The days of long, slow runs or heavy weight lifting with sufficient rest in between are out. Get the heart rate high and sweat, sweat and more sweat.
Or so the motto goes. . .
Under extreme conditions your muscles…Continue

I read an interesting comment about Walmart. it stated something to the effect that the heirs of Walmart have more wealth than 40% of Americans, but they still pay low wages.
Firstly, I have no idea if that statistic is accurate or not. Mark Twain was certainly correctfor today, when he said “There are lies, damn lies and statistics.” We see this in action from the president to CNN and everywhere in between. Lies. Damn Lies. And stats.
For arguments sake, let us assume…Continue

Those who don't, call it "luck" or "good genes."
Those who do, know it is consistency, diligence and dedication.
I am referring to the habits that the healthy have. These are the individuals who have a ton of energy, rarely get ill and if they do, recover quickly. It is not luck. It is not good fortunate. It is a series of habits that they do that other do not.
Here they are:
1. They keep the heart strong. The heart in Natural Medicine is…Continue

I will never win an award for running (unless you consider slowest marathoner of all time an award) but I finish what I start, be that projects or marathons. So the last month has been a puzzle. I cut short 2 long runs and completely bonked on a 10 miler. The last 20 minutes of my aikido class was spent pouring cold water over my head and watching my arm vibrate like it was in an electrical socket. And these were not the most disturbing things.
My memory is usually very…Continue

Reruns can be fun at times. Relaxing to King of Queens or Big Bang Theory, or going old school with MASH can be soothing. There is something comforting about knowing. Something safe about safety, or at least the illusion of it.
At least for a while.
Then it becoming painfully boring.
Seriously, I love Led Zeppelin but how many more times can I take listening to Stairway to Heaven again?! Yes, it is the…Continue

Over the past decade, I have embraced being an artist. Maybe not your typical artist — painter, musician or poet but an artist nonetheless. Though I am a prolific writer (and have done Shodo in the past), the bulk of my artistry comes from Movement, namely martial arts.
As an artist, we have different views of mistakes compared to “normal” people. “Normal” people care about being accurate or correct. An artist cares about continuity.
The work will never be finished, only…Continue
