Why Does Drinking Water Matter?

By Edison de Mello, MD, PhD

The Environmental Working Group (EWG) has done an incredible job researching sunscreen ingredients and educating ...

Magnifying Change Through the Attentiveness of the Body & Mind

By Kevin Kunkel, MA

We may have familiarized ourselves with ways to cleanse the body (food and supplement detoxs, infrared saunas, lymphatic drainage), and ways to cleanse the mind (meditation, journaling exercises). However, it is fascinating and greatly beneficial to explore and become attentive to how the effect on one (body) can significantly benefit the cleanse of the other (mind).

When we cleanse the mind through certain meditative processes, not only is there a change in mental states, but there ...
