A place to explore the paradigm shift
that views body and mind as one

Alzheimer’s Association

The Alzheimer’s Association Helpline is toll-free number that you can call 24/7 to get information. 1-800-848-7097. You may also access it online at the above link. In dealing with a loved one who may have this debilitating brain disease, you don’t have to be alone. Mental health counseling is recommended for caregiver support, but just getting more information is a place to start!

Aromatherapy

Original Swiss Aromatics produces the highest quality essential oils I’ve found. When in an uncomfortable state of mind, I’ll use a drop of frankincense or eucalyptus oil on the tip of my nose or in a diffuser to help shift to a more peaceful state. Beats eating a bag of potato chips to achieve equanimity! Simply visiting its website is a healing experience.

Bach Flower Remedies

This handy Remedy Chooser helps you choose the right Bach Flower remedies. In the ’20s and ’30s, Welsh homeopathic researcher and physician Dr. Edward Bach discovered a system of 38 flower tinctures that help alleviate your particular type of anxiety. These inexpensive remedies work by energetically shiftng core emotional issues causing disease symptoms. Still produced from local plants at Dr. Bach’s home in Mount Vernon, England, they are sold in over 66 countries. I found them very useful in my own healing and recommend them as a calming support to psychotherapy—a side-effect-free adjunct or alternative to costly psycho-pharmaceuticals with their unhealthy side effects. Warning: if you are allergic to alcohol, select the alcohol-free version.

Cannabis study

So glad cannabis is now legal is Washington State! Now objective research can be done to demonstrate its positive and negative effects and, hopefully, synthesize healing compounds out of it. There are over 400 compounds in cannabis in its raw form. Some good, some bad. Most people know one joint is equal to five cigarettes in causing cancer, but now we can start having serious conversations about negative social and mental health effects for individuals their families. Check my How I Work page for more information.

Center for Science in the Public Interest

Based in Washington, the CSPI has been at the forefront of major challenges to the food industry since its founding in 1971. Loads of good info about the dangers of ingesting highly-processed fake food commodities.

Complex Traumatic Stress Disorder

Lily Hope Lucario is a cPTSD specialist with a website filled with great resources for people with this mental disorder. Many people do not understand the many ways they carry damage from childhood into their adult lives making their lives less than satisfying and often just downright miserable particularly in the area of relationship.

DrugDangers.com 

In the US alone, more than 15 million people report abusing prescription drugs, more than the combined number who report abusing cocaine, hallucinogens, inhalants and heroin. Part of DrugDangers.com’s mission is to spread awareness about this devastating issue. The website offers free information about drugs and medical products that can cause serious addiction, injury, or even death.

Jack Kornfield

The Buddha was the first cognitive behavioral therapist. When he walked around teaching people how not to psycho-emotionally suffer 2500 years ago, no one understood what he was doing. A religion grew up around his practices and philosophies because they alleviated so much suffering. Dr. Jack Kornfield is an American clinical psychologist who teaches Buddhist psychology. The tried and true methods on his website can help you feel better quickly. Check out some of them here. You’ll be amazed by their gentle simplicity and effectiveness.

International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology

Many folks do not realize that silver amalgam fillings are half mercury which is more toxic than lead or arsenic. They’re not something you want in your mouth if you are trying maintain a healthy brain. The IAOMT dentists use materials and procedures that are healthier for their patients and the environment. Contact the IAOMT for a dentist near you.

NeuroOptimal neurofeedback

Neurofeedback is another way to help your brain recover from all kinds of trauma. I tried it for my C-PTSD and my husband tried it for his ADHD. In both cases, it helped. My husband became more present and focused and I became less anxious. I’m not saying it is a silver bullet, but it was one more way to become more calm and present. There is a practitioner in LaConner named Kara Stamback at 360.708.8169. The above link gives you information about how it works.

Qigong with Judy Young

This twenty-minute video of Master Young doing qigong (chee gung) makes it easy to do yourself by following along. Slow paced and gentle, it is uplifting, calming and energizing all at the same time!

This one-hour podcast shares a remarkable teacher’s discoveries about how the physical effects of trauma are passed down through our DNA for several generations.

Tara Brach

Ms. Brach is a consummate Buddhist teacher. This little video discusses why suffering is caused by our inability to be here now.

The Monkey is the Messenger

Ralph De La Rosa gifts us with free 15-minute guided mediation that is just perfect for THOSE days.

Tsubaki Grand Shrine of America

Another thing I do for my mental health is visit Tsubaki Shrine to participate in ancient Shinto ceremonies that follow the cycle of the seasons. The purpose of the ceremonies is to celebrate Great Nature, energetically purify oneself and receive new Ki (life force). Feeling one is one with all life on earth is profoundly healing. Tsubaki America is a branch of Tsubaki O Kami Yashiro in Mie Prefecture, in Japan, one of the oldest Jinja Shinto shrines with a history of over 2,000 years. Contact Reverend Lawrence Barrish, gugi of Tsubaki America at kannushi@tsubakishrine.org to obtain more information.
