Feng Shui—2019:

Year of the Earth Pig

Michele Lewis
January–February 2019 • Vol 3, No 102

A very Happy New Year to you, and welcome to a new beginning that is promising to be anything but “boaring”! The Year of the Earth Pig — also known as the boar in Chinese astrology — commences on February 5, 2019, and marks the initiation of a cycle with much potential for healing and spirituality for those who desire to immerse themselves in the good qi of this year.

The Year of the Pig is the culmination of the 12-year rotation of the Chinese zodiac, bringing an opportunity to ponder and review the accomplishments and defeats of the last 11 years to prepare for the new zodiac rotation in 2020. It is a year of reflection and renewal and can bring a relief from past burdens and a welcome lightness to our hearts and minds. It is important though, to always be alert to those energies that would steal our qi, whether an individual or
an idea that is not beneficial in the long run.

Bowenwork for Pain

Enhancing the Body’s Physiology

Crystal Maceira, LMT, MH
January–February 2019 • Vol 3, No 102

Bowenwork has been used in Australia for over 60 years. Insurance companies there pay for treatments, because they have found that it is 80% effective for treating pain and other issues in the body. In this article, I will explain more in physiological terms of why Bowenwork effects such changes with only minimal pressure. (More information about Bowenwork can be found in my May–June 2018 article, archived at NaturalLifeNews.com.)

While I was still in the learning process, I had a client who had Parkinson’s that came to me for massage. He agreed to let me “practice” Bowenwork on him, so I could get my “hands on” training certification. He had stage 4 Parkinson’s, which made it difficult for him to get around. Besides the obvious tremors, he indicated that he didn’t sleep well, had no energy and had a significant amount of pain. Within three treatments, he was pleasantly surprised at the results. He was sleeping better, had more energy to do some projects around the house, and he was in less pain. We did a few more treatments, which increased the benefits. When he expressed his delight with his doctor, she wanted to learn more about Bowenwork.

Roses, Roses, Roses!

“The Gourmet Herbalist”

Marlenea La Shomb, N.D., LMT
January–February 2019 • Vol 3, No 102

Beautiful by nature, roses delight the senses: visual, touch, scent and taste. Yes, taste! This edible flower is used as oils, essences and food. Organic, wild-crafted rose petals can be put in salads, and in side dishes. Yet roses are best known for their rose hips in tea. (They grow in my garden and the deer love them too!)

One cup of rose-hips tea has more whole-food vitamin C in it than a whole bag of California oranges that have been sprayed, picked, stored and gassed to make them turn orange. Most recently, I have been using powdered rose hips found at my local health-food store. It is very versatile and a wonderful cell food. It mixes easily into a fruit salad, fresh juices and smoothies, and apricot-coconut-nut balls. Be creative and enjoy roses all year long!

Begin Again…

Getting Back to Basic Core Values

Catherine Nelson, Ph.D.
January–February 2019 • Vol 3, No 102

Here we are at the beginning of a new year. In our culture it is customary to reflect on the past year and set some goals and priorities for the coming year. We are leaving a year that was filled with excess and inundation—political commercials spending excessive amounts of money. We are inundated with all the pressure to buy things over the holidays, with the emphasis on “things,” not relationships. We are bombarded with excessive amounts of information in the media, on our computers and cell phones. Endless kinds of entertainment are available day and night. Many of us are distracted, mesmerized, overwhelmed, even addicted, to looking at the little and big screens in our world of technology. More and more of us, adults and teenagers, look like cell-phone zombies as we walk down the street totally focused on their gadget. Some of these individuals trip and fall; some forget where they are; some get hit by cars!

It’s interesting to note that Bill Gates and Steve Jobs were both very restrictive about the use of technology for their children and teens. There are recent reports from veterinarians that our domestic animals are suffering from depression because their owners are not paying attention to them. Another factor to examine is the high rate of suicide in the US, and especially in Montana.

Spring Into the New Year…

JUST MOVE!

Marlenea La Shomb, N.D., LMT, Certified Reboundologist
January–February 2019 • Vol 3, No 102

Did you know, statistically speaking, that lack of movement is now being considered our number-one cause of disease? Your mitochondria are the key workers in your cells. They need oxygen to do their chores, and they multiply with movement and use. Dr. Jerry Tennant, MD, ND, reminds us that moving the arms activates energy for the lungs and heart. Moving the legs activates and massages all the organs located from the diaphragm and below.

Studies and research have proven that children learn better on their feet and when moving. Getting out and moving in nature, with fresh air and sunshine, is even more beneficial. So get away from that desk and just move!

Integrated Functional Movement

3 Exercises Optimal Biomechanics

Terry Kennedy, MPT
January–February 2019 • Vol 3, No 102

In my previous article, “Addressing Chronic Pain from Suboptimal Biomechanics,” I discussed how our body’s biomechanics and movement patterns (the way we hold ourselves and move), can be altered by old injuries or bad habits, which results in an imbalance of muscle tension. Some muscles become overused and painful; others become weak and often “silent.” The fascia (our three-dimensional web of connective tissue) adapts to the imbalance and contributes to abnormal forces on joints. All this can lead to arthritis. Any component can contribute to chronic pain, and this is often difficult to sort out and treat successfully.

The meanings of the two terms, biomechanics and movement patterns are very similar. Good biomechanics result in good movement patterns. Good functional movement patterns have nerves, muscles, joints and fascia that are working together optimally. With optimal biomechanics and integrated movement patterns, there is the potential to be pain-free, because of less joint compression and better-balanced soft tissue tension.

Toasted Quinoa

The Lightest, Fluffiest, Most Flavorful Quinoa

Janice Feuer-Haugen
January–February 2019 • Vol 3, No 102

TThe idea came to me a couple of weeks ago while enjoying a bowl of vegetable soup. Hmm, I thought, this soup would be perfect over a scoop of quinoa. Maybe even toasted quinoa. Interesting thought considering that I’d never before tasted toasted quinoa.

I made a small batch, toasting the quinoa in the same pan I would cook it in. The smell was incredible, the color change promising, and adding the boiling water exciting. The depth of flavor was rich, earthy, nutty, and fabulous, the texture amazingly light and fluffy.

I have never before used such words and adjectives to describe quinoa—and I love quinoa and have since before the turn of the century (something else I doubt I’ve ever said before). Toasted Quinoa may be my new best friend. I’m guessing it will become yours, too.

Winter—A Time for Rest

Ensuring You Get a Good Night’s ZZZZZs!

Michele Lewis
November-December 2018 • Vol 3, No 101

It is so beautiful to witness nature going deep into her rest. We too, should be “resting” by slowing down and getting more sleep, beginning in the fall and especially in the winter cycles of nature. This initiates the process of building our energetic reserves as well as strengthening our immune system. Many people needlessly suffer because of a lack of sufficient, rejuvenating sleep. It is not just the number of hours. The quality of sleep — how deeply we go and the time cycle in which we get our sleep—are important determining factors in how we feel when the alarm goes off each morning.

Our health and spirit heal best in a night sleep cycle. In Chinese Medicine, the hours of 11:00 pm to 1:00 am benefit the gall bladder, 1:00 am to 3:00 am is when the liver cleanses, 3:00 am to 5:00 am is associated with the lungs, and 5:00 am to 7:00 am benefits the large intestine. The earlier you can go to bed during these long winter nights, the more highly beneficial it is. Nature is going to sleep earlier and rising later, and you should too! When you are awake and active, especially during gall bladder and liver time cycles, your body cannot detoxify and replenish.

SomaDerm™ Gel

Homeopathic Transdermal Human Growth Hormone

Denis Ouellette
November-December 2018 • Vol 3, No 101

NewULife’s SomaDerm Gel™ is the only transdermal, FDA registered product, containing homeopathic Human Growth Hormone (HGH), which is a single-chain peptide hormone produced from the pituitary gland, the master gland in the body. This is the hormone that helps you grow throughout childhood, hence the word “growth”.

Around the age of 20, HGH is at its peak, and then plummets around the age of 25. This is when the dreadful aging process begins, as this hormone slowly declines for the rest of your life. But don’t worry; growing isn’t the only thing HGH is good for. Many experts say that elevating growth hormone when you are older can bring back your levels to when you were in your 20’s.
