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...

Did you know that Essential Oils can help with Weight Loss?

The sense of smell and of taste are key to successful weight management. Slique™ Essential Oil Blend, with its exotic aroma and enticing citrus flavors, appeals to both senses and provides health benefits when added to the Slique™ Tea. But it is the individual oils contained within Slique™ Essence that, by their nature, promote the release of unwanted pounds. The Citrus Oils of Slique™ Essence. The juice from citrus fruit is beneficial in ways that differ from the oil of the citrus. Citrus oils are not distilled from the pulp, but from the zest (peel) of the fruit. In addition to alkalizing the body, the citrus oils can also be used in massage for releasing petrochemicals from fat cells and removing unwanted cellulite. Slique™ Essence Blend contains...

From caterpillar to butterfly…

Meeting with a few of my coaching colleagues this morning, we started talking about change and transformation. It seems that everywhere we look these days, we are offered transformation on a platter. It is the buzz word in the marketing industry and everyone hitches their bandwagon onto this newly used concept. "Transform your life" they shout from their marketing soapboxes, but do we? What is change, and what is transformation? First of all, we cannot have transformation without change, but we can have change without transformation. Change is an event, transformation is a process. Yes, I know...

Fall: time to get back into a routine.

I hope that your summer was rich in adventures, experiences and fun, rest, healthy foods and great friends and family to share it all with. Summer is such a wonderful time to relax and enjoy family life in a different way: no holidays to fret over, just sun, backyard barbecues, pick-up games of flag football or competing for the silliest pool jump! Bishop Desmond Tutu said it best about families: " You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them." As much as we love the relaxed summer mode, our body and mind crave routine and fall is synonymous with back to school, early morning wake-up times and getting back into a rhythm. We function best according to the rhythms...

Spring is like a box of crayons…

Spring always reminds me of a brand new box of colored pencils: vibrant yellow daffodils, soft pink petals and blue primrose. But most amazing are all the shades of green that come up in the spring. I don't know about you, but my lawn has turned greener by the day this past week...

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...
