Algal Oil versus Fish Oil

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.

Break Unwanted Habits With Mindfulness!

How do we ...
