Creativity

Sunday, September 6th, 2015

Have you ever given thought to what is Creativity and what it offers us?

Creativity has a biological basis. It releases potent chemicals from our endocrine and immune systems that make us feel good, potent and capable!  It unleashes a whole-being beneficial bio-plasticity that enhances our life.  It could in fact be considered a whole human output that enables a varying blend of cognitive, emotional, chemical, motor, neuro-immunity, memory and sensory improvement.

In addition, Creativity and it’s inherent divergent thinking allows for flexibility and enhances ones coping abilities.  It also allows for inventiveness in how we learn better ways to explore and move out of pain.  Therefore, Creativity is a core skill that better enables one to cope with whatever life brings us.

So what does this have to do with a Feldenkrais® Awareness Through Movement® (ATM) lesson you might ask?  Think of all your habits and patterns, that’s pretty inventive!   Did you ever stop and think about how many more ways, more efficient ways  you might create  a feeling of how to move?  When one thing changes, your mental or emotional state, that too effects your physical, and each shift either leads to a positive or negative feedback loop experience.  Which patterns would you prefer getting better at regarding shifting your mental, emotional and physical state?  If you thought you could find a way to enable how to feel better, something that you would like more, would you be interested or is it good enough as is?

 When you begin to listen to sense and feel what you are doing as in an Awareness Through Movement lesson, you are
1.) Improving your sensory feedback loop so that under you Demand you can better do what you want!
2.) You are enhancing your mental and emotional state that produce the chemicals that serve you better!
3.) When one area shifts for the better, all shift: mental; emotional; cognitive; physical…
Want more of finding a way to move forward, doing what you want, how to explore, being nice and gentle that serves each one of us better?  Come learn more about how to learn, how to explore, how to be in a state that produces the “Stuff that dreams are made of!”

Can We Eat to Starve Cancer-What Can We Do For Ourselves

Thursday, June 24th, 2010

One of my main focuses is how can we best support and help ourselves. What can we do to better insure health and wellbeing? This doesn’t mean that we never get sick but have you noticed that there are some people who are less prone to illnesses, and when they do come down with something they are faster to restore good health. We run to doctors as the be all end all to fix us, when what we need to do better is to learn how to listen internally and take care of ourselves. What has Mother Nature given us that we are not paying attention to?

You’ve heard me speak of the benefits of a more natural vegetable, plant based diet and all the better when it’s local and sustainable. Whether you’ve been following my thread speaking of Dr. Joel Fuhrman, then there’s Dr. Dean Ornish and so many others who are investing their lives, studying how to reverse our modern day illnesses we are barraged with, what can you do to help yourself?

Want to learn more about how you can insure your good health? What if you could eat to stop the growth of cancers before they become a danger? Have you heard of Antiangiogenic Therapy?

It’s Hard, Really Hard Sometimes to Change Unless You Want to!

Thursday, May 6th, 2010

I’ve been following the focus and thoughts of Dr. Joel Fuhrman for several years now. I too have difficulty always being as focused and diligent in my eating regime yet I realize that I can continue to renew my focus.  I notice the things I tell myself, becoming more mindful and returning when I fall of the wagon so to speak to a more balanced, enjoyable and delicious diet that enables me to live life to the fullest!

We all know people who are seriously charging to an early sick bed or worst. And we know how “you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make them drink!” And you can, non- judgmentally present them with information that when they are ready they can make better choices and turn things around. You know, if you’re alive, your hearts still beating and your brain still alive, there’s time.

Give yourself the time to read more about this amazing turn around story that all thought beyond hope. This is a real life story, person and a life now living to the fullest. Learn more about Dr. Joel Fuhrman by clicking here.

Laughter and Exercise both Improve your Health!

Thursday, May 6th, 2010

How many times have you heard someone tell you what the have to do or they should but you can tell by their expression and body language that their heart really isn’t in to it. Maybe it’s about working out to improve their health or lose weight, it could be any thing that we resist doing. Now what if you could connect the effects of enjoyable exercise and laughter, that’s a thought! You know what it’s like when you’re watching a show with someone or at an outing and someone tells a joke or something funny happens and you begin to laugh and laugh and before you know it you and others are laughing uncontrollably until one of you is grabbing at your gut begging with tears of laughter to stop so you can catch your breath! You know how you feel, rejuvenated, alive, you feel great! When you feel good you don’t feel bad, now that’s a thought! What are the things you are telling yourself, are they good things, insults, what you should be doing, self defeating language or beneficial things?  What if you thought of the things that make you laugh, I mean really give you a chuckle, how many times a day do you do that! We all have experiences, things that we reflect on in our lives that fuel us. Do you fill yourself up with negative thoughts and actions or positive, and how often do you laugh and then laugh out loud.? It’s contagious, laughing and those who catch the bug of laughter don’t always have to know what’s so funny because the excitement and joy of laughter is too much fun to challenge.

So think about the things that make you smile, make you happy and then take it to the next step and reflect on the things that make you laugh even if you are laughing at yourself with humor and love and go take a walk, hike, garden, play with your kids or pets, go to the gym and enjoy the things that you get to do.

Suddenly the Health Insurers Will Have an Interest in Your Health!

Thursday, January 7th, 2010

“That’s the worst sentence I’ve ever heard said!” Jon Stewart exclaims during an interview with author Michael Pollan. “Suddenly the health insurers will have an interest in your health, which right now they don’t?!?!”  What are we to do about this?  How we eat, what we eat and how we are manipulated by the food industries to market their goods that poison us is sheer brain washing.  We get upset when told that our insurance companies won’t cover us or a claim because of pre-existing conditions and heaven forbid we change what we are doing that is creating the condition we are rejected for.  But if a doctor says, take Lipitor or a medication to reduce cholesterol or BP we don’t hesitate and follow without thinking of the precautions and many dangerous side effects.

We are eating ourselves to death! Creating modern day illnesses that insurance companies justify eliminating many from their health coverage because they’re too risky to cover. Want to know more about how to change this dynamic and get healthy once again? To learn more click here!

How to Protect Yourself from Cancer and Stay Healthy!

Monday, December 21st, 2009

I have been following the theme of nutrition endorsed by Dr. Joel Fuhrman.  For the past 15 years and more, Dr. Fuhrman has been espousing the benefits of a healthy vegetable based diet with non invasive approaches to reverse our modern day illnesses created by excess.  He is doing noted studies with Johns Hopkins University and now he is sharing with us how to better avoid or reverse cancers.  In this article he focuses on breast cancer but the advise is applicable to all cancers.  Here is a little to wet your appetite –

“Green vegetables are the most powerful anti-breast cancer food. Take note that a vegetarian diet does not show protection against breast cancer as much as a diet rich in green vegetables, berries and seeds. Many vegans eat a high glycemic, nutritionally poor diet, and do not take sufficient Vitamin D, leaving themselves at high risk of cancer. It is the phytochemical nutrient density and diversity of the diet that offers the most dramatic protection against cancer, not merely the avoidance of meat or fat.  Close to 300 case-controlled studies show a protective effect of vegetable consumption against cancer and that cruciferous vegetables are the foods with the most powerful anti-cancer effects of all foods.  While eating fresh fruits, beans, vegetables, seeds and nuts have been all been shown in scientific studies to reduce occurrence of cancer, cruciferous vegetables are different.  Instead of a 1 to 1 relationship they have 1 to 2 relationship with a wide variety of human cancers.  In other words, as plant food intake goes up 20% in a population, cancer rates typically drop 20%, but as cruciferous vegetables go up 20%, cancer rates drop 40%.”  To learn more, click here.
