  • More “Insider Information” for Recovery from AS

    Today I am pleased to offer you more must-know nuggets of highly powerful “insider information” for attaining remission and recovery from Ankylosing Spondylitis. Before I do, I’ll remind you that the ASVA is completely different from other AS support groups, and we diverge from the Western Medical approach to chronic illness mainly because of our […]

  • A Solution For Chronic Pain

    We all know that by managing our stress more effectively, we can more easily reverse the symptoms of chronic pain. Enter meditation. Practicing meditation is an ideal solution for reducing your stress and easing your symptoms. It can be as easy as taking a few minutes to concentrate, and as simple as closing your eyes […]

  • How the Body Heals – Part 2

    What makes us sick, and who, or what, can make us well? In a very real sense, our thoughts and emotions hold the key. Think about it—when you suppress your guilt, shame, anger, resentment, and other negative emotions… can they make you sick? Recent medical findings overwhelmingly conclude that in fact, they do. We now […]

  • The Power of “Aha”!

    Recently, I was counseling a client who has been diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis. The discussion came to standstill as she experienced a life-altering epiphany, or what some call an “aha!” moment. We were discussing how ridding the body of stress can reduce chronic pain and muscle spasms. She understood the principle but hadn’t quite grasped […]

  • The Healing Within You

    Recently I was asked by a reader to discuss the science of healing. It’s a pretty hefty request, so let’s boil it down to basics: The first thing to note is that healing is not a scientific domain. It may surprise you to know that the concept of “healing” is rarely discussed in medical schools. […]

  • Your Thoughts Determine the Quality of Your Life

    All great thinkers know that what you put attention to determines the quality of your life. In fact, our dominant thoughts get planted into our subconscious minds, ultimately becoming the default programming that shapes our expectations and experiences. Fixing your attention on positive thoughts calls upon life to support you. Choosing authentic expressions for your […]

  • Right On!

    Hello – It’s the last day of June and we are officially halfway through this calendar year. For those of you who remember, what were your New Year’s resolutions? And the real question: Have you accomplished what you set out to? Lots of people go about making resolutions at the beginning of every year. For […]

  • The Keys to Healing

    You’ve probably heard the expression “Knowledge is power.” It sounds impressive, but the fact is that knowledge without purpose is useless. Making your knowledge work for you is the key. If you want to improve your health and feel better, you’ve got to supplement what you know with appropriate action. If you have trouble doing […]

  • The Link Between Emotional and Physical Health

    Studies now prove that your emotions are inextricably linked to your physical well-being. Think of how your blood pressure rises significantly when you feel anxious or threatened. High blood pressure has become a major problem for many people, and it’s a pretty clear example of what is called the mind-body connection. When emotional health is unbalanced, it consumes […]

  • Integrative Medicine is the Wave of the Future

    The medical field is rapidly transforming. It’s now more accepting of a more integrative approach to healthcare. Foundations, colleges and universities, research institutions, and the federal government are creating initiatives to explore, research and develop a new patient-driven approach to care. Integrative medicine recognizes the importance of modern scientific treatment as well as the state of an individual’s mind […]

  • Quantum Physics and Life

    For the better part of three centuries, Newtonian principles have dominated the worlds of science and academia. These principles and discoveries led to the discipline we call physics, and since the time of Newton himself, the physical sciences have been regarded as completely proven and verifiable. In physics, the science of mechanics is divided into […]

  • Rebuilding Your Body and Brain

    Did you know that the body you lived in yesterday is different than the one you’re in today?  In a process called cellular mitosis the cells in your body birth new cells repeatedly and die off naturally throughout your lifetime. In fact, in a few years you’ll have a completely rebuilt body altogether.  Some cells […]

  • The Placebo Effect

    Research studies published in medical journals report that there are anti-depressant medications on the market that register no measurable results in clinical trials.  The assertion has been made that a “placebo effect” may be responsible for the benefits that the retail users of those medications report to their doctors.  You probably know that a placebo […]

  • What You Think Makes A Difference

    Have you heard that the quality of your thought equals the quality of your life? Well then, the time has come to understand exactly what it means for you and your future. If you have a chronic illness, such as Ankylosing Spondylitis (which is what I had for 10 years) or other autoimmune disease, the […]

  • Inner Intelligence

    In his book The Secret of the Ages, Robert Collier asserts that the mind is master and commander of the body because a subconscious “inner intelligence” directs and controls every function in the body. For example, it knows how much sodium and potassium you need to balance the regulation of the sodium ion pump, a […]
