Quick Ebola UpdateA couple of weeks back I wrote about the Ebola outbreak and how it was mainly a marker for the distressed health condition of the unfortunate victims, rather than a measure of the viciousness of the virus itself. In other words weakened people will have a disastrous experience, strong healthy people will probably fight it off rather easily. That’s contrary to the hype and junk science that wants you to believe there’s going to be a scary new pandemic and you had all better fling yourselves helplessly into the arms of Big Pharma, the only means of your salvation. If God is on your side there will be a vaccine made available in the nick of time and you will all be saved… Hallelujah! If not…well. ...[click to continue]

"Be brave enough to live creatively. The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. You can't get there by bus, only by hard work, risking, and by not quite knowing what you're doing…" ~ Alan Alda
I’m not scared of “not quite knowing what I was doing”—I live like that most of the time!

Is Tree Hugging Good For Your Health?
Years ago I lost a mighty volume of poems I had written. As an already-published poet they were not just dreams or self-delusions; these were GOOD poems. I wept over that notebook. It still haunts me; the beautiful language that came to me in the night; up in the skies; on far-flung mountain tops; and by the ocean shore… All gone!
I’ve tried to re-construct some of it but poetry isn’t like that. It’s a moment of intense creation that never comes again.
But I do remember one of them was about hugg ...[click to continue]

Are there easy ways to reduce stress and anxiety naturally?Tense moments such as paying bills or looming work deadlines will trigger several stress hormones in the body, which cause muscle tension, sweating, increase in heart rate and, increased respiration. Stress is a silent killer and puts you at risk for chronic diseases, obesity, and insomnia. I am sure you feel the hectic pace of everyday life wearing and tugging on you and you aren’t alone...did you know that worldwide nearly 500 million people suffer from stress? It’s shocking yet true. Mental and emotional stress can even cause chronic muscle pain and depression. What mimics a crippling disease is actually an emotional state that is programmed by basi ...[click to continue]

Pain is the King of symptoms; it demands respect and can be cruel when ignored. It erodes the quality of life, demoralizes the patient and causes a horribly negative emotional response. Those in chronic pain are particularly miserable, because they know it will be back again tomorrow, and the next day, and the next…
But acute pain is bad too, because the patient is not used to it and has no practice at enduring its difficulties.
Yes, pain is medicine’s number one call to action. Nobody likes pain. ...[click to continue]
