Pie. Cookies. Chocolate. Eggnog. Champagne.
The holiday season is filled with good foods. You eat and drink with your friends and
loved ones to celebrate how much you care about them.

can lead to extra pounds, digestion upsets, mood swings and a generally “yucky” feeling.… Read the rest
Did you ever wonder what makes a newborn baby cry when it is hungry? A tiny infant a
few days out of the womb can communicate their needs to their mother without the ability
to utter a single syllable of their native language. They didn’t learn this skill by reading a

true when it comes to the foods that become available with each season. Autumn brings
with it a bounty of fruits, vegetables, and herbs that nourish the body and support health

Top 10 Reasons to Try Acupuncture
1. Acupuncturists view each person holistically and individually.
No two people are alike. Every cell in that person’s body is interconnected to others and is functioning as part of an integrated whole.

If given a choice between real and artificial, the majority of people in most instances will
choose real. No matter the product, there is an implied superiority to the authentic item
as compared to an imitation, no matter how similar the two may be.

“authentic”, “the original”, or “genuine”.… Read the rest
The banana. It’s the perfect snack food. It’s a great source of potassium and even
comes in its own wrapper. Picked ripe off the tree, it can’t be beat.
The only problem is unless you have a banana tree in your backyard, we never get
bananas ripe off the tree. In fact, the tasty sweet yellow banana that you enjoy is actually
in the process of rotting.… Read the rest
If you’ve ever seen an oldtime stonecutter at work, you know that persistence pays off.
Equipped only with a sledgehammer, chisel, and determination, they rain blow after blow
down upon the rock, confident that their work will produce the desired result. Although
the stone shows no outward signs of wear and tear, the stone cutter continues on,
knowing that each swing of the hammer will weaken the stone a little more until it finally
splits in half.… Read the rest
