What’s a Breath-Work Seminar?

Integral Breathwork in Billings & Livingston, MT

Denis Ouellette
March-April 2019 • Vol 3, No 103

Breathing isn’t work—it’s automatic—right? So, why attend a Breath-Work Seminar? This seminar focuses on the most important, yet most neglected, activity you do to provide yourself with life and vitality! At the Integral Breathwork Seminars, we measure, assess, and work on improving your breathing function. Then we lie down for a one-hour breathing session that will likely be one of the most life-changing experiences of your life, so far!

After the breathwork session, it’s hard to describe how you feel, but some have tried. Here are some actual words that participants have used: Happy… Relieved… Alive & free… Expanded… I feel like myself again!… Peaceful… Warm & tingly… Strong… Connected to life… Radiant… Aerated!… Drained & refilled… Comfortable… Effervescent… Clearer… More present… Phenomenal!

Keeping your Birthday Suit Clean & Healthy

4 Easy Steps to Great Skin

Marlenea La Shomb, N.D., LMT
March-April 2019 • Vol 3, No 103

With the dawning of a new spring, we will want to shed the old layers of skin that have built up over the winter months. Just as a snake sheds its outer layers, elimination is very important to our overall health.

What are your body’s garbage-removal systems? Kidneys remove water waste, bowels eliminate bulk waste, lungs remove toxic gases, and skin (considered a two-way street) breathes in oxygen and releases toxic debris. This happens with rashes, psoriasis and eczema, as well as by sweating, especially where there is an area of concentrated lymph nodes, like the armpits and groin area.

Roasted Beet & Carrot Lentil Salad

with Tangy Orange Mustard Vinaigrette

March-April 2019 • Vol 3, No 103

Our Montana Winter temperatures usually stay with us long past spring’s official March starting date. So, I offer a new recipe to you for a hearty salad to help brighten the days until spring actually arrives.

Colorful, satisfying and deeply flavored Roasted Beet & Carrot Lentil Salad plays the natural sweetness of roasted beets and carrots against a backdrop of robust and firm-textured French green (le Puy) lentils. The roasted carrots add brightness. Fresh parsley, mint and scallions bring freshness. Crumbled goat cheese or feta give a touch of creaminess. And to top it off, the refreshingly tart and Tangy Orange Mustard Vinaigrette makes this salad especially delicious.

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.
