Good Vibes

I discovered in a fascinating Scientific American article that all known matter in the universe is constantly in motion.  Vibrating, actually.  This includes objects that appear to be completely stationary.  They are  in fact resonating, oscillating, vibrating at different frequencies.  So ultimately, all matter is simply composed on various vibrations, of molecules and atoms. Something…

Why Skin Matters

I began creating my own homemade skin care products in my kitchen several years ago. I love very much were suffering and I decided to educate myself in order to help them. My firstborn son was diagnosed with “eczema” that looked like a severe burn, and would sometimes bleed.  We tried an elimination diet, and…

This is one of those things I made on a day when I thought I had nothing in the house…some dry millet, a 5 lb bag of carrots, two parsnips, the stems from a bunch of cilantro… But lo and behold, it came out gloriously flavorful, toothsome and satisfying.  I soaked the millet first, as…

Coming from the Heart

I have been very interested in different healing modalities for as long as I can remember.  I have learned Reiki, a form of hands-on energy healing.  I have studied herbalism.  I have trained in bodywork – massage, trigger point therapy and myofascial release.  All of these have added to my own understanding of the body…
