Disease and happiness seem to be great foes in the imagination of humanity. Interesting as it is to eradicate any disorder the only effective conqueror is happiness. This happiness we speak about is always looked at as something much lighter and insignificant then it is. As a matter of fact we have never once seen a truly happy person with a disease.

Spontaneous sweats, headaches, full body tension... These are only a few of the many symptoms that comprise anxiety. Today, over 40 million Americans are diagnosed with an anxiety disorder, and what is worse is that the number of undiagnosed people who suffer from anxiety is much higher. While it is common to think that medication is the answer to your anxious symptoms, in reality, it only masks the surface signs of your anxiety and never treats the root causes. Will you get short-term relief from pharmaceuticals? Most likely. However, there is nothing empowering about a pill, and your anxiety will always be there haunting you until you start to deal with it in a healthy and confident way. As a young woman who suffered from a decade-long, severe and chronic anxiety disorder, I, too, believed that medication was the only "cure" for me. When I started incorporating the following practices into my daily routine, though, I saw dramatic results and a significant decrease in my anxiety. Admission, affirmation, meditation and prayer all gave me what no drug ever could, an overwhelming sense of empowerment and true healing for my disorder.

Pranayama, or yoga breathing, may provide effective relief for some asthma suffers, says a recent study in “The Lancet” (vol. 335, no. 8702). The yoga breathing technique has been used for centuries in Hindu cultures to treat respiratory problems, but now the method has been confirmed by a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, said Virendra Singhl, M.D., leader of the research group. The study found that the use of pranayama exercises in subjects with mild asthma led to an overall improvement in lung function equal to or greater than that obtained through hypnosis or the use of low-dose inhaled corticosteroids. Singhl speculates that by reducing psychological over-activity, the yoga exercises help increase bronchial dilation and efficiency.

Having comrades at work can be a real lifesaver. To explore the link between job stress and heart disease, Swedish researchers electronically monitored the heartbeats of 148 working men and women, ages 23 to 61, throughout one day. The participants, who included doctors, teachers, musicians, police officers, train engineers, prison personnel and sawmill workers, also filled out a questionnaire about their work environment. Those who reported good social support on the job (friendly relations with co-workers and supervisors; a pleasant atmosphere of cooperation; few conflicts or arguments) had significantly lower heart rates – not just during working hours but at home as well, even while asleep – than did those who said they worked in chilly conditions. “The inability to unwind after work has been found to be a common effect of stress at work,” the researchers say. Because it’s hard to let go of a whole day’s worth of tension, the effect “may be so strong that even the ability to relax during sleep is influenced.” Accelerated heart rate, often a sign of stress, has been linked to an increased risk of heart disease, they note.

Through the use of dark field microscopic imaging, the visible haematological effects of radio frequency radiation (RFR) generated by a cellular phone usage were profiled. Each subject gave a control sample and then used a cell phone Nokia model 6085 in the standard operating position for fifteen (15) minutes, engaged in receiving sound in some form. The results were recorded on a digital camera. All results were analyzed and compared. There are several issues that merit discussion since the experimental design intended to examine the effect of radio frequency (RF) radiation emitted by cell phone usage on live blood. Despite the control appearance of all subjects in this investigation, the cell phone effects consistently led to documented findings of rouleau, and erythrocyte aggregation and a far more abnormal haematological appearance. See the results below.Blood is the most unique "organ" in the body and all physiological functions are totally dependent on the capability of this diverse fluid to carry out a number of functions. In optimal blood cell formations, the erythrocytes (red blood cells) are singular, free moving and often colliding with one another. Blood is responsible for the distribution and transport of oxygen from the lungs to the cells of the body and to remove carbon dioxide from the cells and transport it back to the lungs. Blood is also responsible for the transportation of nutrients, hormones and wastes, temperature control, pH, electrolyte balance and the immune system function of the white blood cell components.

Blood is made up of approximately 50% water, which comes in the form of plasma. Plasma is the transport system for the cells and keeps them moving on their journey through the twists and turns of what we call our bloodstream. The other 50% is made up of white blood cells, red blood cells and platelets. These are the key players of the immune system.

Robert A. Monroe, the founder of The Monroe Institute, achieved world-wide recognition as a ground-breaking visionary and explorer of human consciousness. His pioneering research, beginning in the 1950’s, led to the discovery that specific sound patterns have identifiable, beneficial effects on our capabilities. For example, certain combinations of frequencies enhance alertness; others induce sleep, promote intuitive or creative states, and still others evoke non-ordinary, expanded states of consciousness.

A book review is a lot like a book report, something I was quite adverse to throughout my schooling. Why read a book and go through the trouble of explaining what the author says or means? If I read a great book, I just tell my friends, “You have to read this book!” End of story - or mine at least.

“I say it, as it is. And some people don’t like it.,” said someone who was explaining the sources of her stress to me. She continued, “I want to be truthful. Sometimes truth hurts, so they get angry and they try to hurt me back, you know,” she added. “Yes, I agree,” I replied, “but does truth always need to hurt?” This is a conversation I have had multiple times — and it’s not always with individuals who are highly stressed.

There’s a fine line between perception and imagination. We don’t just see things as they are, but rather we see things as we are.  As a psychotherapist, I use the power of imagination to help my clients shift into new perceptions. Bending things is the name of the game.  Just like massage is manipulation of soft tissue for a good outcome, psychotherapy is a benevolent intervention that challenges the mental/emotional “knots” of the person to help them get unstuck. I use imagination to stretch perceptions and rock the boat.
