Disease and the Energy Body

Disease and the Energy Body Everything is Energy Energy is the core substance of everything in the Universe. Without it, there would be no life because life needs energy to fuel its very existence. If you’ve taken a chemistry class you probably remember learning about atoms, and that everything is made up of them. These atoms are in a constant state of motion, and depending on their speed, things appear as a solid, liquid, or gas.  Sound is a vibration as are thoughts and emotions (e-motion = energy in motion). But here is the kicker!  The whole material world is nothing but vibration.  Nothing is really ever solid, liquid or gas, however.  It just all appears that way depending on the rate atoms are vibrating.  Hence, when you heat water – a liquid – the hotter it gets (the more energy you add), it becomes a gas (vapour). The law of nature states that […]

Health Benefits of Vitamin A

  VITAMIN  A itamin A, also known as Retinol, has the unique distinction of being the first official Vitamin named after it’s discovery in 19131 – hence the name Vitamin A. Scientists later went on to find a provitamin A which are all members of the carotenoid family.  Now we generally refer to Vitamin A in two forms.  1) Retinol – found in animal sources and 2) Beta-carotene, found in a wide variety of yellow and orange coloured fruits and vegetables.  Note that animal sources of Vitamin A are six times stronger than plant sources, so be careful if eating too much organ meat. Vitamin A is primarily absorbed in the small intestine and is a fat soluble vitamin.  This means that they dissolve in fat and are stored in fat throughout the body. It is difficult for your body to excrete excess fat-soluble vitamins, so toxic levels can accumulate if you consume […]

Natural Therapy for Wintertime Depression

  Natural Remedies for Wintertime Depression   SAD or Seasonal Affective Disorder affects one in five people.  This condition begins to occur as the days shorten and we experience less sunlight.  Those with SAD can experience varying degrees of depression from a vague feeling that something is not quite right, to intense feelings of sadness and despair, and even thoughts of suicide. Along with depression, SAD sufferers may also sleep more in winter. Feelings of fatigue and lethargy may  also be prominent. Sunlight helps to regulate a multitude of hormones and neurotransmitters that control the body clock (circadian rhythm) and have strong effects on sleep, mood and behaviour. Two of these main players are called melatonin and serotonin.   When levels of these two hormones get low, it can result in the symptoms of SAD.  Here are some natural remedies I suggest to help with this debilitating disorder:- Vitamin D – This deficiency has long […]
