Staying True to Your Word Power in Honesty by Madisyn Taylor for the Daily OM...

Jan 29, 2016 by

Your honest word is one of your most precious and powerful possessions. Promises are easily made. Keeping them often proves more difficult because when we are pressured to strive always for perfection, we find it simpler to agree to undertake impossible tasks than to say no. Likewise, there is an infinite array of circumstances that conspire to goad us into telling falsehoods, even when we hold a great reverence for truth. When you endeavor to consistently keep your word, however, you protect your reputation and promote yourself as someone who can be trusted to be unfailingly truthful. Though your honesty may not always endear you to others—for there will always be those who fear the truth—you can nonetheless be certain that your integrity is never tarnished by the patina of deceit. Since frankness and...

5 Paths to Better Bone Health

Jan 10, 2016 by

Five Non-Pharmaceutical Paths to Better Bone Health By Kyle Zagrodsky Bone health may not be something most people think, but it should be. Approximately 54 million Americans suffer from osteoporosis or have very low bone density, and studies show that about one in two women and one in four men age 50 and older will break a bone because of osteoporosis. Throughout the human life cycle, the body naturally loses bone and then rebuilds it. This is a continual process, and the good news is that the more active we are as young adults, the more bone density we add to our personal bone bank. The bad news is that around age 50, everyone’s ability to rebuild lost bone plummets. This is especially true for post-menopausal women, which is why women are especially prone...

Let Yoga Be Your Medicine

Dec 27, 2015 by

DETOXIFY, STIMULATE the IMMUNE SYSTEM, and BURN FAT There is a DIFFERENCE between a hot yoga studio and an Infrared Heated Studio. Traditional heaters heat the body from the outside, great for sweating and fat burning… BUT… Infrared heats the body from the INSIDE so sweating and fat burning are only part of the benefits! Infrared causes dilation of the small blood vessels deep inside the organs, increasing circulation in the deep tissues which don’t easily get fresh blood. When deep organ tissues are flushed with new oxygenated blood, deeper healing takes place. Toxic substances like heavy metals, environmental toxins and chemicals are stored in these deep tissues. The infrared heat combined with the twisting and stretching of the yoga poses allow the toxins to be released, they travel into the blood stream and...
