During these challenging times, it is perhaps helpful to look at how our nervous system has evolved to adapt to challenges and stress.
Psychologist Dr. Stephen Porges provides a theory he has developed regarding the hierarchical nature of our autonomic responses via the vagus nerve complex to challenges and danger.
We live in the Age of Aluminum, according to Dr. Chris Exley, Professor in Bioinorganic Chemistry at Keele University, Staffordshire. Aluminum is everywhere, every day. It is used in building materials, cars, pots and pans, frozen food containers, cans, utensils and more. It is in drinking water, in our food, medicines and in the air. Although most aluminum leaves the body, what is not excreted can have long term consequences. What can we do? Read More
Humans have known for long time about the deceptively simple power of poking, pressing or tapping on key body points to achieve changes in the body energy systems.
Although scientific evidence of this network of channels is still lacking, clinical experience suggests that this bio-circuitry is a powerful and important part of the human body, and that kinesiology can be used to access and intervene in this human operating system. It is an exciting field of exploration.
Vitamins are essential organic compounds we need in small amounts for a range of functions. Vitamin C, for example, is essential for cell respiration and energy production. Unknown until the first part of the 20th century, deficiency in this water-soluble vitamin resulted in scurvy, the scourge of the British navy. By the end of the 18th century, a doctor had connected the poor starchy diets of the sailors and the illness but it wasn’t until 1928 that the compound responsible for helping prevent it was isolated by Hungarian scientist Albert Szent-Györgyi (1893-1986).

Dr. William Tiller walks a line between orthodox science and metaphysics in his fascinating work on human potential – of which we seem only to have scratched the surface. Our thoughts and intentions when paired with focus and emotion are powerful. Read More
The study of quanta, the smallest possible ‘particles’ such as photons of light, ran into a problem in 1935. Physicists including Albert Einstein were unable to explain how such particles separated by large distances could still ‘know’ and respond to what was happening to each other. It violated the principle of locality. Read More
Sarcodes were developed in the 1830s using the proving method, in which a group of healthy subjects take a homeopathic remedy and observe and document its effects. These remedies were created using healthy tissue from the organs and glands of humans and animals, and the 30x dilution is one of the standard potencies that have been used worldwide for decades.

One of the most challenging concepts in integrative healthcare is the principle of potentization that is central to homeopathic dilution. This principle, first suggested by Hahnemann, was an effort to explain why different dilutions of a remedy elicit such different responses in people who use them. Read More
Pain is one of the most common reasons for people to visit medical and integrative providers. Despite the enormous burden of suffering that is created by chronic pain, it is still poorly understood by western medical science. While research has identified complex changes in the brain, spine and nerves in people with pain, doctors agree that effective treatment remains elusive. Read More
We all know that snow and ice are crystals, but did you know that water is a crystal too? Crystals have been used for healing for centuries in every corner of the world. While they are enjoying a new wave of popularity, few people understand how crystals actually interact with the body. The answer to this question is intimately linked to how our vials work, and the scientific basis for vibrational medicine. Read More
For centuries western physicians have pondered over and experimented with the body’s electrical system using technology – from Galvani’s 18thcentury electricity experiments with frogs legs and Mesmer’s magnetic tub to patented galvanic body coils and ‘electrotherapeutics’ taught at late 19th and even early 20th century medical schools.
