5 tips on overcoming emotional eating

· Monika Nowak
You know that for most of us, food is so much more than just fuel. We eat for many reasons other than keeping ourselves alive.  Some of those reasons are healthy and positive. Some of them are less so. For instance: Some of us look for the comfort, soothing, and physical pleasure that we aren’t getting from our relationships. Unlike certain people, food is undemanding. It’s always there for us and it lives to give. Overeating is often a welcome release in a life that is full of commitments, obligations, responsibilities, and demands from others. Some of us try to protect ourselves by eating (or not-eating). Some of us “stuff” ourselves with food to help us “stuff” our emotions. Eating

How other people affect your health and well-being?

Today, I want to turn the spotlight on our relationships. Whether you like it or not, our health, well-being, food and exercise choices are very often related to the people that surround us. Husbands, wives, children, friends, co-workers, parents, in-laws, even our pets.   Although more general in nature, this quote nicely sums it up:  "Almost all our sorrows can be traced to relationship with the wrong people and our joys to relationships with the right people."  John C. Maxwell, "Talent is Never Enough" Multiple social and behavioral studies describe the effect called mirroring. Whether consciously or not, we often mirror other people's behaviors, and that extends to food behaviors as

How to Establish a Healthy Evening Routine

We’ve all been there: After a long day at the office, you pick up takeout on the way home, zone out in front of the TV and fall asleep scrolling through your social media feed. It can happen to the best of us, but the lack of a healthy evening routine can be a serious saboteur when it comes to accomplishing your overall wellness goals.

How to enjoy the weight loss process?

· Monika Nowak
Have you ever wondered why some people seem to have an easy time losing weight? Or at least easier than you. They just set their goals and do it, while you are the one always struggling to either lose weight or to keep it off.  I recently read an interesting book by Mark Manson called "The subtle art of not giving a f*ck" and as much as it wasn't necessarily about nutrition but life in general, I have jotted some thoughts down that I thought related to eating and weight loss on a fundamental level.  In one of the chapters, the author, talked about wanting to climb a mountain. He wanted to get to the top and imagined how it would feel to reach the summit,  but he wasn't really interested in

Aromatherapy Tips: Which works better, inhaling essential oils or applying them to my skin?

· Michelle Gilbert, CA, APAIA
Aromatherapy can promote healthy functioning of all mind-body systems. Choosing inhalation or skin application depends on what we want to support: respiratory and immune health, relaxation and restful sleep, tight or achy muscles, digestive issues, or skin conditions. Benefits of inhaling essential oils Inhalation, such as with a diffuser or aromastick/inhaler, is often the most effective way to use aromatherapy. When we inhale, essential oil molecules quickly enter our lungs and bloodstream. Inhaled essential oils also enhance activity in the parts of our brain that moderate our response to stress. Choose inhalation when you want support for respiratory issues such as colds or allergies, wh

Fight pain naturally with these powerful natural remedies

Every day, millions of people rush to the pharmacy for some over-the-counter (OTC) or prescription pain medication. Most of us who live with the debilitating effects of chronic pain would do almost anything to find relief. While painkillers like ibuprofen, acetaminophen (the active ingredient in Tylenol) or the more addictive opioid drugs can help manage your pain, know that they can also cause severe damage to your body. OTC painkillers are considered safe by most people, but when taken in large doses they can be deadly. An acetaminophen overdose is one of the most common poisonings worldwide, causing numerous emergency room visits, hospitalizations, and deaths due to acute liver failure.
