Menopausal Hot Flashes and CNS neurotransmition linked
Could relief be as easy as simple amino acid supplementation? Women around the world experience vasomotor symptoms (hot flashes) as they enter and complete the menopause transition. Hot flashes, are caused by a narrowing of the thermoneutral zone in the brain.

The latest development in management of hot flashes indicates that selective serotonin and selective nor epinephrine reuptake inhibit... Read More

Mind and Vision: Retrain the Brain
Did you know that you do not see with your eyes? The eyes are simply organs that receive light.

This further solidifies the fact that the Bates Method is different than simply performing eye exercises . Much more emphasis is placed on the m... Read More

Waterfalls as Metaphor for Oneness
And now for a completely different tradition of poetry and spirituality; a little haiku and Zen. When you get down to it though, the truths are the same. Different flavors of ice cream are still ice cream. I've featured the haiku of Mitsu Suzuki here before. She wasn't only a haiku poet, but wife to Shunryu Suzuki Roshi, and with him played an important role in bringing Zen Buddhism to North America.

ITP - PDSA's Annual Conference and Reiki
“The Healing Power of Reiki” – Pamir Kiciman, BA, RM, CHt An overlooked aspect of health is a sense of wellness despite symptoms. Even with an ongoing condition, it's possible to be functional and happy in daily living. Every person has a set of principles, a foundation to live by, which brings meaning and purpose to life.

The Heart as a brain
From Joseph Chilton Pierce, author of "The Crack in the Cosmic Egg": Molecular biologists have discovered that the heart is the body's most important endocrine gland. In response to our experience of the world, it produces and releases a major hormone, ANF that profoundly affects every operation in the limbic structure, or what we refer to as the "emotional brain." This includes the hippocampal area where memory and learning take place, and also the control centers for the entire hormonal system. Neurocardiologists have found that 60 to 65% of the cells of t...
