Movement, Libido and Well Being

 

By Olivia Barry PT, E-RYT-500

Our ability to expand our energetic field depends on the cleansing and strengthening properties of regular exercise. Movement, well-being, and libido coordinate in a cycle. If we exercise, we feel better — energy levels rise, aches subside, and self-image improves. When we feel better and more energized, we’re more likely to engage in a broader variety of activities, including sexual intimacy.

Placebo Effect: How the mind (and body) responds to what we think

 

By. Dr. Alicia Maher

Have you ever flinched at the sight of blood? Or yawned when you see someone else do so? Our brains are reacting to things even when we aren’t conscious of it. Sometimes, this reaction is as powerful as medication, such as what occurs with the placebo response. In every study of medication versus placebo, there will be some people who respond to the inert substance of the placebo, the same as the group getting the active ...

Break Unwanted Habits With Mindfulness!

 

By Dr. Swati Desai

I remember getting really angry when I was doing my Akasha Cleanse and it required me not to have my morning cup of coffee. It is hard to let go of habits even when they are unwanted.

How do we ...

Gratitude and your Mood

 

By Alicia Maher, M.D.

 

One of the central tenets of Thanksgiving- gratitude, offers us a powerful tool for changing our mood. There are times when it’s not our thoughts about the situation that are causing problems for us, but rather it really is the situation itself. A good example of this is grieving, or loss. In addition, there are those instances where one just feels too low to get out of a negative thought pattern. And, sometimes, it just isn’t ...
