A practical guide to gratitude (so you can see and think differently). In a stuck moment, it’s hard to see positive forces when obstacles are blaring and fears are looming. This is a good time to be grateful. Not grateful for what has us stuck, but appreciating what doesn’t. Gratitude helps us see our situation in a way that can lessen panic and open up our thinking to new solutions.
Gratitude makes us happier. Gratitude strengthens relationships, improves health, reduces stress, and, in general, makes us happier, according to Dr. Emmons, who explains his research in this video. Read this newsletter…
Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy/Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, RSD/CRPS…What is it? Our newsletter and webinar this month will be devoted to this subject.
What is it? Our newsletter and webinar this month will be devoted to this subject.
In our Marlton office we take a blended holistic and conventional approach to the treatment of RSD/CRPS. While Dr. Getson does utilize conventional therapies like physical therapy and medication to try and control the patient’s symptoms, we also incorporate holistic health counseling sessions and our infra-red sauna, the “POD”, to those suffering with this disorder.

Behave toward others as you would like to have them behave toward you. This so-called golden rule is stated in just about every ancient writing about behavioral precepts (including the NewTestament, Talmud, Koran, and the Analects of Confucius.) Among the earliest appearances in English is Earl Rivers’ translation of a saying of Socrates (Dictes and Sayenges of the Philosophers, 1477), it is so well known that it is often shortened…**
It sounds easy and makes a lot of sense. However many people say they don’t witness this occurring, that people don’t treat their neighbors with loving kindness or common courtesies anymore. Read this newsletter…
Recently one of TDI’s employees came in with a bag of organic cucumbers from her garden that she was kind enough to share with the office. She provided the proper environment, the proper water and exposed it to sunlight, etc. and the cucumber grew. The cucumber didn’t think about whether or not it wanted to grow or whether or not it wanted to be a cucumber. It just did as God intended it to do. I t is what it is without any apologies or judgement and with complete acceptance.
If a cucumber has this capability, then what is possible for human beings? What if all humans everywhere had their God given basic rights of life provided…. healthy, nutritious food, clean, pure water, sunlight and shelter. What would we be capable of, given this nourishing environment How can we bring to fruition that which was planned for us when we were created? Read this newsletter…
If someone asked me to name one thing that I am positive about, it would be that life never stays the same. When we talk about finding or being our true selves, it is because our life has changed and we are trying to figure out what that means going forward. Actually, until something unexpected and drastic happens, most people rarely take the time to stop and analyze who they are. We are too busy just living.
On top of all that, we all have that nasty little inner voice that validates every doubt, fear and insecurity that we have. You know that voice. It’s the one that tells you that you aren’t good enough, pretty enough, smart enough, educated enough, or worthy enough. Every time you set out to achieve a goal, whether it is writing a book or finding love, this inner whisper becomes a yell that many times drowns out your confidence. Read this newsletter…
Breaking the silence, offering solutions and ending the stigma of Substance Abuse Disorder; An Impassioned Plea.
Substance Abuse Disorder/Substance Use Disorder is currently classified as a disease. This new term is being used in an attempt to remove some of the stigma associated with the subject of drug addiction.
This is a difficult subject for me to write about because, like so many other people, I have loved ones that are critically ill; they suffer with Substance Abuse Disorder. I have seen and felt the pain and devastation of substance abuse firsthand, and, like my loved ones, I became sick and I too needed help. Read this newsletter…
Daily living causes much stress, which is not easy on the adrenal glands.
The adrenal glands (also known as suprarenal glands) are the triangle-shaped endocrine glands that sit atop the kidneys. They are chiefly responsible for regulating the stress response through the synthesis of corticosteroids and catecholamine, including cortisol and adrenaline.
When the adrenals are tired, the body may experience a number of different symptoms. Learn about Adrenal Fatigue and natural ways to support your adrenals.
Other topics include: Superwoman and Superman Syndrome, The Stages of Adrenal Exhaustion, Why am I so irritable and moody? Do you have “raging witch syndrome?” and more. Read this newsletter…
This ancient divining art has been traced back to Egyptian times and its use has been documented in China, India, and Germany to locate water and mineral deposits throughout ancient civilization. More recently, dowsing was used to locate petroleum and underground tunnels during the Vietnam War.
Today, dowsing is widely used in the practice of Feng Shui to locate and cure subtle energies that disrupt the natural harmonious flow in your home and to increase your sense of well-being and raise the energy in your environment. A dowser uses a variety of cures, including activated copper sticks that are comprised to cure specific energetic disturbances that drain your energy. Read this newsletter…
As a Zen koan says: “Sitting quietly, doing nothing, spring comes and the grass grows by itself.”
Spring: the season of renewal; the element of wood.
We welcome spring, rejoicing in the longer days and the vision of growth and rebirth after the depth and introspection we experienced in winter. The seeds planted last autumn that have germinated over the winter become buds beginning to break through the frozen earth, and signs of renewal and hope start to stir within us; the seeds of change that we planted within ourselves now push through with the new energy we feel. A sense of renewal gives us the vision and inspiration to bring our goals and creative energy to fruition. Read this newsletter…
In the 1930’s, a Cleveland dentist named Weston A. Price, DDS, who I have referred to in a previous newsletter, traveled to isolated parts of the world to study the dental health of people unaffected by Western civilization. His studies revealed that dental caries and deformed dental arches, which resulted in crooked teeth, were the result of nutritional deficiencies and not genetically inherited as previously believed.
Dr. Price studied sequestered villages in Switzerland, Gaelic communities in the Outer Hebrides, indigenous peoples of North and South America, Melanesian and Polynesian South Sea Islanders, African tribes, Australian Aborigines and the Maori people of New Zealand. He found that beautiful straight teeth, freedom from decay, good physiques and resistance to disease were typical of native groups who consumed traditional diets rich in essential nutrients.
