How Fresh is Your Produce?


MONTHLY MEDITATION FOR HAPPINESS
The Power of Humility
Just as water cannot collect on mountain peaks, so good qualities and blessings cannot gather on the rocky peaks of pride.
If, instead, we maintain a humble, respectful attitude toward everyone, good qualities and inspiration will flow into our mind all the time,  like a stream flowing into a valley.
Learn how to cultivate the powerful mind of humility.

Health Tip of the Week
Drug Resistance
Tuberculosis and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus has become a growing threat to public health worldwide. The presence of these “immune” bacteria in wild animals in Africa is being attributed to human waste from near by villages. 40% of tested wildlife contained drug resistant E. Coli, including leopards, elephants, and crocodiles in northern Botswana. Multidrug resistance was most common in aquatic animals and those animals living near crowded villages. While most doctors believe that the prescription of medication to a human is a closed system impacting only that person, the evidence shows a more global impact.
Innate Defense
One of the “holy grails” in research is to find a way to activate the human’s immune system. Researchers at the University of Miami are exploring ways to artificially jump-start the immune system, without vaccinations, so that a person’s immune system is prepared for everything from the common cold to HIV. “We know that no drug can compete with our innate immunity and if we can tap into that defense system, we have a major breakthrough,” says Paetro Solvinski, lead researcher. Incidentally, chiropractic agrees! There is no better method of self- protection than innate intelligence.
Breathing Your Way To Health
Breathing. It isn’t something we often think about is it? Performance enhancement coach Ed Harrold is on a mission to help people breathe properly. He says most people are shallow breathers, or mouth breathers. His contention is that nasal breathing activates our diaphragm muscle, which is the muscle primarily responsible for pulling air into our lungs, presses down on our gastrointestinal organs and lowers our back, thus giving us better posture and improved digestion.He says it is nasal breathing is a very relaxing because it stimulates the parasympathetic autonomic nervous system that is responsible for resting and digesting, whereas mouth breathing stimulates the sympathetic nervous system which elevates the heart rate and activates the fight or flight response.Most chiropractic patients notice a change in their breathing after an adjustment. They are able to take deeper breaths and tend to breathe through their nose.
