Solving the Lyme Dilemma

I've been recently thinking quite a lot about Lyme Disease.  I think about it because I know there are so many people out there that are suffering with untreated and what they believe is untreatable Lyme.  I'm here to tell you that it is not as difficult to treat as you might think.  Why?  Because I understand that Lyme Disease is completely treatable when you accept that it is a condition, like many illnesses, that is unique to each person who is infected.

The Disadvantage of Insurance

Lots of us wish that insurance would cover natural options such as the therapies, supplements, homeopathics and testing options that we provide at Conscious Body.  But it's important for you to understand why it's better that they don't.

The C Word

The reason I feel the need to write about breast cancer is because of the common approach that I am seeing in every single diagnosis - an almost blinding rapidity to rush through treatment.  From diagnosis to the surgical suite is becoming a matter of days and at most weeks.  Prior to it is the multiple visit requirement for additional tests, pre-surgical discussions, and many other honestly, terrifying aspects of this dreaded disease.  What is this doing to women and their chances for complete recovery?

Are You Too Tired to Sleep?

I remember my sister telling me that she was too tired to sleep.  I used to laugh at the sheer ridiculousness of that statement.  But it turns out she was absolutely right.  The fact is that we think of sleep as a passive, completely restful state.  But in fact it is a very active state that requires energy because of the restoration, healing and processing that occurs during the sleep hours.

Striving for Emptiness

The idea of emptiness is something we struggle with.  There seems to be an unending supply of peanut butter in the jar, there is always dirt filling in the edges of the house, there is always something on my To Do List, there is always another bill on the desk.  This also extends into our digestive tract and if you think about it, this is an area of our body that is never empty unless we make a very focused concerted effort.

A Society of Impatience

A patient used to be a person who would seek out solutions for their health conditions and then would wait for them to work.  The time needed was usually determined by the speed at which their body would change and move toward healing.  But now we are a world of impatience.  We want immediate solutions, immediate attention, cut right to the gold star, forget about the idea of apprenticeship and step out into the world immediately as a master.

Are You in the Driver's Seat?

Do you know what your blood pressure is?  Do you know if you are borderline anemic?  Did your last blood test include A1C?  How many different physicians do you see in a year?  The reason I'm asking these questions is because most people are letting their doctor do all the driving while they sit back and just watch the scenery go by.  You can't be truly healthy without being invested in the status of your health.  And the best way to do this is by doing your own evaluation of your health beginning with your test results.

It's All in Your Head

Growing up one of the phrases that I think I heard more often than any other was "it's all in your head!".  This would usually be said in response to my stay home from school mystery illness, or when I tried to tell my mother that aliens had landed in the back yard.  But the truth is that everything really is all in our head, every symptom, every illness, every ounce of healing.In our bodies, our brain houses the structures that translate the external energies into the internal energies, and control the processes in our bodies that make this happen.
