The Legitimacy of Healing

edited by Michelle Bense

Think about a world where healthcare has no adverse side effects, where we experience no pain during or after healthcare procedures. We have become so desensitized by our “no pain, no gain” attitudes that the onslaught of elective surgeries and pharmaceutical commercials letting us know that their newest pill may cause “severe stomach aches” or result in “sudden death” don’t even cause us to bat an eye.

Lyme Disease

A Natural and Holistic Approach to Immune Health

by Lynn Feinman

When I was told I had Lyme disease 12 years ago, I was devastated. I was healthy, or so I thought. I exercised, was a vegetarian and even took vitamins. What I quickly came to realize was that this has everything to do with my “biochemical individuality”—my unique make-up which provided an opportunity for this bacteria carried by the tick to invade my body and cause fatigue, fever and kick off an autoimmune response. Our biochemical individuality is comprised of our genes, as well as our lifetime of environmental exposures and how our body has responded to both of these factors and our unique nutritional needs resulting from the interplay of these factors.

Healing Lyme Disease

Lyme disease and its co-infections, Mycoplasma and Bartonella, attack weaknesses in our body. We are weakened primarily by long-held emotional stress, physical trauma and the environment. If a heart has been stressed by a bad diet for decades or from prolonged emotional pain, it will become even weaker with Lyme disease.

Farm Fresh for Vitality

by Christine Tentilucci

farm fresh for vitalityOne of the great things about summer is the availability of fresh, in-season produce. There is nothing like locally grown berries, tomatoes and corn on the cob, enjoyed just days—and sometimes hours—after being picked. We are fortunate to live in a region so ripe with farms, food stands and farmers’ markets. It makes it easy to eat clean and support local farmers in the process.

Declare Your Food Independence

by Lisa White

food independenceThe only way to know with 100 percent certainty what is in our food is to grow it (and test it) ourselves. In fact, The National Gardening Association reported that in 2009, 43 million Americans had a food garden. But growing tomatoes, peppers and basil is not going to fill our bellies, and most people want much more food than they are interested in or able to produce on their own.
