Tick season is here. What do I do?

"Ticks are everywhere! What can we do?" I hear this on a daily basis in the office, as everyone seems to be pulling them from dogs, cats, kids and themselves. After a winter that was relatively mild here in the Northeast, the tick population is exploding and they are coming at us from every angle. Here are some relatively easy to implement solutions to help keep you and your yard as tick-free as possible. At home: 1.  Keep your grass mowed. Ticks love long blades of grass, that bring them across a lawn quickly and comfortably! Trim weeds around the edges and keep the area clean. Messy piles of leaves or debris attract rodents, who in turn bring ticks with them. 2.  Create a barrier between you, the place you...

What are your beaver dams?

What are your beaver dams? I realize, as the months go by, that there are a lot of questions about the bio-energetic assessments I provide in my office. So here is how it works: Do you ever bring your car in to the dealership? Maybe it is for a scheduled tune-up or maybe it is because something is making a weird noise, or just not working well. Almost all cars these days get hooked up to a computer scanning their system and giving the mechanic information about the state of the engine and the general functioning of the car. It is an assessment tool he uses to determine the best course of action. The mechanic, in agreement with his client, will then decide what to do: change the oil, fix...

Is the Hippocratic Oath Hypocritical?

We love to feature guests blogs at Satya Wellness. The following is contributed by my friend and colleague Dr Patti Bartsch, PhD of Naturally Unbridled. Is the Hippocratic Oath Hypocritical? First, do no harm? What would Hippocrates Say? All medical doctors take the Hippocratic Oath which includes the phrase “First, do no harm.”  If doctors are so concerned with what Hippocrates believed, why aren’t they honoring his motto of “Let thy food be thy medicine”? Something like 6% of medical schools offer a nutrition class and in most of those it is an elective.  We know that “we are what we eat” and yet people continue to eat things that do not occur in nature and therefore have no nutritional purpose in the body; in fact they can be highly...

Farm tales… or tails…

Picture by Paul Cary Goldberg, Green Meadows Website Everyone has an extra special place in their life, somewhere they are likely to be found when nowhere in sight in their house. For some it may be their garage, where they can tinker in peace on an old car or it may be the local coffee shop, where they can read without being disturbed. For me, when not at the beach with my dog, I might just be at the farm. I guess you can take a girl out of the farm, but you can never take the farm out of the girl! I own a share at a local organic farm, also called a CSA, community supported agriculture. What it means is simply that I support local farming by...
