Post image for Is Therapy For You?

Have you ever wondered if therapy might be for you?Read More

This is beautiful. The way Haley describes her depression is very real, and very relatable. I know this feeling personally, and sometimes the best thing to do is to talk it out. Too many emotions inside that need to get out, and words are a great conduit of energy to release. I am an acupuncturist and it is a medicine that has helped me a lot in so many ways, and I hope to share it with other people as well, as it helps a lot with mental and emotional health. I have realized some people just really need to talk and share their story. It is a very healing modality. Thank you for the wise words. http://seedoflifeacupuncture.com

First, brava, Haley! Second, I love that this article was in the "beauty" category. Seeking inner health and being a beautiful person on the inside:) It just makes me happy. This whole article's existence makes me happy. You guys make me happy. Third, I'd like to add that most heath insurance plans, including Medicare and Medicade, according to people I know who have those plans, include mental health care. It might not cover extended stays at swanky rehab facilities, but seeing a therapist weekly for 45 minutes should only cost a co-pay. I also know people who can't afford the $15 co-pay, and one who has worked something out with his therapist to pay that portion when he can (when he gets extra shifts at work.) There are also places where one can seek out therapy for free: most colleges have mental health care if you're a student, staff member, or faculty member. I know that RVAP and DVIP (the rape victim advocacy program and the domestic violence intervention program) in my town both provide therapy for people who are working with them/ living at the women's shelter/ etc. Try calling a local crisis line or asking at your local library if you need help and can't figure out how to find it. Fourth, it's scary to start therapy sometimes, especially if you want to examine old wounds. Know that you can meet multiple therapists with different styles and personalities before you pick one to see regularly; not everyone gets along with every therapist, and that's okay. Also, you can talk to your therapist about your relationship, building trust, etc., even if you've never had a conversation like that before. "I'm scared" or "This is new to me" or "What are we going to do in therapy?" are all valid. They're a professional therapist; if they do anything besides listen to you and respond honestly and with understanding/ empathy, the world has turned upside down. On that note, it took me six months to tell my therapist why I was in therapy, but that was okay. I had a lot of shame and fear to get through first. And I did. Therapy has helped me a lot, and I'd recommend it for anyone looking to make changes in their life. If you're prepared to walk through that door and be even a little honest with yourself, then therapy is for you. (You can always try it and then stop if you don't like it; what's it going to hurt, really?) Okay, last thing, I promise: I finally get to toot my own horn a little bit. If you want to learn more about MY story and my journey with therapy, check out my blog at ikillmydarlings.wordpress.com. (Please don't be put off by the violent title. It's a literary reference.)

Post image for I Went Back to Yoga After Eight Years and Here’s What Happened

A month-long journal chronicling a return to yoga after eight years…Read More

Debra -Jan 07, 2016, 12:10PM
I found yoga in 1997 and it quickly spoke to me on so many levels. Over the course of the next 15 years I stopped and started my practice. In 2012 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. After treatment I was left depleted and lost. My neice visited me, and being a yoga teacher, she talked to me about going back to yoga. I did and almost 3 years later my practice is stronger than it has ever been.. It is sometimes hard to notice the subtle differences when I practice on a regular basis....but boy I can surely notice when I don't! To say yoga has had a healing effect on me would be putting it mildly. I love yoga. It challenges me every single time. Mentally and physically. That is different than saying it's hard. It has become a necessity, it has become the great love of my life.

Yoga can be really hard. I feel like my best experiences of yoga were with the intention to relax and not to work out. I did a month of yoga in Rishikesh and it was a very different experience than yoga in NY. The intention behind the class and the treatment of students was more holistic and not as bodies moving. I'm kind of bummed I haven't found classes like that in the U.S but I'd like to start doing yoga at home. I also found amazing yoga classes in Miami on the beach sunset/sunrise, yep it's amazing!

I have done oil pulling previously and loved it..although after accidentally swallowing a couple of times I threw it in..I am worried I am ingesting more toxicity by doing it and accidentally swallowing than doing nothing at all! Maybe I should revisit :)
Karma -Jan 11, 2016, 7:53AM
Oil Pulling is really amazing! I was also very sceptical at first - but once established into your morning routine, you quickly realise how amazing it is once you miss a day. I would highly recommend - my teeth are definitely brighter! I am obsessed about oral hygiene and oil pulling has made a significant difference. You seriously have nothing to lose - give it a try! x x x lovely article :)

I love using a variation of the coffee cinnamon scrub. However, no matter how much I rinse myself and the bathtub, it always leaves a residue everywhere (including myself). I have to use a loofah to take it out, but it takes ages and leaves a mess. Has anyone else experienced this?
Sandra Manay -Jan 04, 2016, 10:20AM
Juicing is for sure my number one choice to stay healthy and feel good. I'm not big on smoothies, there's something about the texture I can't stand.

Suggestion: Buy a can of regular, full fat coconut milk from the Asian food section in your grocery store or at and Asian market - make sure it's 3 ingredients OR LESS. Scoop the contents (not too much of the liquid) into a bowl or container and whip with sugar to taste. You'll have an excellent whipped cream consistency to put into your coffee or tea in the morning (or ANY time). Put 3 table spoons of the whipped coconut cream into your drink of choice and let it sit for 3-5 minutes. Ta da! A lovely latte made right at home. Enjoy! : ) *You can microwave it for a minute if it gets cold and have nearly the same effect. **Put it in your hot cocoa or Teechino or hot carob!! Don't forget to had another scoop for the top!!!
Rebecca -Jan 08, 2016, 6:00PM
I found out I was lactose intolerant about four years ago. I made the switch to soy milk first, but did experience some of the side effects others have mentioned. After trying a few different kinds of milk I settled on almond milk. The main reason was vanity, while I was trying different milks I realized that both soy and coconut milk were causing breakouts. It's one of the side-effects that the estrogen in soy milk can have on the body.
