Articles in "living"

   The holiday season can create an unsteadiness and inability to remain upright through multiple challenges to our balance. Busyness. Overspending. Grief. Loneliness. Illness ... It’s a time of year created to be “joyful” and “festive,” yet many of us look forward to the 1st of January as a restart button.  For those of you who find yourself “out of balance” and constantly struggling to recover from the holidays, here are 7 areas of life to practice the art of maintaining balance in a simple fashion so that we can help each other experience truer joy.
According to Gretchen Mendell of Nature’s Remedy in Ellicottville, “Last year was the worst cold and flu season that I have experienced in my store over the past 18 years."  I can attest to this statement as I’ve worked at Nature’s Remedy since October of 2012, and witnessed my clients’ frustrations with intense respiratory symptoms, antibiotics commonly not working, concomitant infections (especially yeast infections) from misuse and overuse of antibiotics, OTC meds not helping, and confusion about how to “work” themselves and their loved ones through the journey of microbial invasion. This article responds to that need. 
For most people, losing weight is not as easy as “calories in, calories out”. Nor is energy a matter of more sleep or the latest “energy” product. There are many ways to approach weight loss and energy production depending on each person’s current health concerns, lifestyle considerations, financial accessibility, time, motivation, support system and tools. In this article, I will attempt to paint a picture of various options to provide your body with what it needs to experience “Happier Days”.
Inevitably, when what we believe changes or needs updating, it’s helpful to update our environment to reflect our own reinvention.  Have you ever noticed how you start to feel comfortable and then life changes?  Or what you thought was cool yesterday and looks great on you, is actually not so attractive on you today?  It’s both a blessing and a challenge to be as author Ester Hicks says, “tapped in, tuned in and turned on”.  
With the snow comes lots of fun (especially here in Ellicottville), long workdays, and unfortunately, sometimes injuries from various accidents.  Musculoskeletal and neurological dysfunctions can be so frustrating because of the pain, decreased range of motion, and worst case, immobility. This article will cover some of the various naturopathic solutions for muscles, ligaments, tendons, bones, nerves and connective tissue.


The beginning of a new year is here, and in the world of fitness and health, that queues hope and change to become more of what we want and to feel better in our bodies, homes, relationships and life.
