Recently, as I waited out a two-and-a-half hour lay-over in a Midwest airport terminal, it dawned on me that my entire day had almost gone by without stretching, stimulating nor ever flexing any muscle in my poor body. While pondering this situation, the loudspeaker announced that my flight was boarding at the opposite end of the terminal. I looked down at my hand-luggage which was relatively small and light, grabbed it under my arm and began my day

On Thanksgiving Day 2006, we launched a project for peace here at Hippocrates. There couldn’t have been a better time and place to set such a movement in motion! With a few hundred loving and caring souls gathering on this sacred land, surrounding the lake and holding hands, we learned of a simple gesture that would contribute to the healing that is so urgently needed around the globe.

The National Institute of Dental Research states that 75% of the adult population has moderate to advanced periodontal infection, 90% has some form of gingivitis, and 30% of children have pathogenic microorganisms. According to the National Institute of Health, “the incidence of PI exceeds 70% in the 30 – 44 age groups and 90% in the 55 – 64 age group… the prevalence and severity of PI will increase as the life expectancy of the population and retention of teeth increase.”

There are some psychologists who adhere to the Systems approach to mental health. The central idea here is that each individual lives and functions within a larger psychological system, like the family unit, a peer group, etc., and that within that system, our sense of self and well-being are derived and nurtured, this, of course, is especially true for young children, who, in their immature sense of personal boundaries, are wide open to external influences. Even a person’s sense of his own separateness is learned within the setting of the family system. If this system has the qualities of openness, truthfulness, acceptance, and love, then a child’s emerging self-image will naturally tend to be healthy. Where the communication is stifled or warped in a family system, the individual’s self-image can easily become unhealthy. Besides exploring our own personal history to clean up unhealthy impressions we may be carrying and acting out, there are some life-style choices we can make in our present circumstances to keep our psychological environment “clean”.

The immune system is one of the most incredible and complex features of our amazingly and wonderfully built bodies. When functioning properly, this system of over two trillion defenders is capable of identifying and eliminating alien invaders while recognizing and leaving alone our own cells to do their business. “The concept that the immune system must discriminate continually between self and non-self,” says the book Immunology, “is a cornerstone of all immunological theory.”

In her providence, Mother Nature has arranged that our very first relationship in the world contains within it the ideal “living food” diet. Immediately after coming out of the womb, new born infants can instinctively locate their mother’s breast if left on the mother’s abdomen. Today, many mothers are relearning the immeasurable health value of guiding babies to the breast to receive their mother’s milk. The breast produces milk, which is a “human-specific” pre-digested food, designed to nourish our young. Breastfeeding aids in the transition to extra-uterine life for the child and promotes the mother’s readjustment after pregnancy.

In 1975, I began to develop a vision improvement procedure that I called “open focus.” I soon realized that this method affected a lot more than vision. The technique was based on a specific aspect of human behavior that I had observed for many years – behavior that deals with the way in which we habitually approach our life experiences and consequently learn. I noticed that most people were always looking for something specific in life and that in this process they missed everything they weren’t looking for. Since it appears that most of life’s revelations occur when we are not looking for them, I began to realize that the way in which most of us were seeing was only allowing us to view, and thereby experience, a partial reality.
