T'ai Chi Offers A Way To Fight Stress

A study done by Kaiser Permenente found that unmanaged stress was the root cause of about 70 percent of patients' health problems.

That means "If you can get rid of stress, you can avoid 70% of health problems."

Deepak Chopra, M.D., world-renowned physician and author who integrates mind, body, and spirit into health and healing, has said that every pharmaceutical is already in the human body, and natural techniques can trigger the release of those chemicals to promote healing.

"That's really what Tai Chi and Qigong are designed to do, by using gentle movements and breathing techniques to constantly cleanse stress from the body," to remove the blocks and allow the flow of energy.

Author Bill Douglas writes
"Whether you are stressed out, continually exhausted, treating a health problem, or just wanting to get in shape and feel young again, Tai Chi is just what you need. Tai Chi goes right to the heart of everything we do by healing and cleansing the central nervous system. Tai Chi helps us to let go of all the nervous tension that bogs down our mental computer system (like getting a general tune up every day). This makes everything inside us work better, which often makes the world around us seem better, too."
In only 20 minutes a day, you can gain the health benefits of Tai Chi Chuan: increased strength and energy, better balance, and improved bodily awareness. Excellent for beginning students, those who want a low-impact alternative to jogging or aerobics, and those with limited time for exercise.
The most immediate health benefits of t'ai chi practice are improved posture, flexibility, balance, circulation, metabolism, and neuro-muscular function, and a strengthened immune system.  ~~ Terry Dunn

Healthy Earth Friendly Lawns

Leukemia or a Weedless Lawn?

This was the headline of an article from today's Care2 newsletter. Annie B. Bond writes about something big that has happened in Canada, and she’d love it if we would all celebrate by urging our state governments to follow the Canadians’ lead.

The provinces of Ontario and Quebec have both banned the use of cosmetic pesticides! These are the type you put on your lawn and spray on your rose bushes.

Astonishingly, Annie writes, Home Depot is listening and voluntarily stopping the sale of traditional pesticides in Canada and replacing them with eco-friendly versions.

I agree with Annie that this is big news because the reason for this action is to protect the health of pregnant women and children. Research shows that children who are exposed to pesticides and herbicides have a higher risk of leukemia, among other things.

According to Organic Style magazine, You can have an organic lawn that is lush and lovely, and there are so many reasons to go natural. Pesticides and herbicides are linked to neurotoxicity, birth defects, cancers, organ damage and more.
