General Health and Wellness

This category is for your discussions, comments, questions and more about issues relating to general health and natural health approaches.

For most of California, the air quality is dramatically being affected by the fires.  Even if you’re miles from a burn area, you may be suffering from the effects of smoke. My deepest sympathies go to those displaced or to those who have had loss of loved ones or property.  This is a very stressful time.  The love and prayers of everyone are very significant right now.

There’s also a huge need for self-care in times like this. As a Dr. of Naturopathic Ministry and a wellness coach, I can’t stress the importance of caring for yourself as you care for those closest to you. I’ve been asked by some what I might recommend to those who wish to do that.  Here are my suggestions from a mind/body/spirit perspective.

Continuing the journey…

This is what my bowl of blessing rocks looked like when we set them up on my display table at the event we recently attended in Southern California.

This is what remained in the bowl when packing up the display and I noticed several of the rocks with blessing words were missing, as well as the precious heart-shaped green stone that has such deep meaning for me.

Some have suggested that perhaps the bowl looked like the words were for the taking, like a candy bowl. For next time, that will be a great idea.

This was my bowl of Blessing Rocks.  I wrote the following during my experience at an event where I brought this bowl, along with a good portion of my healing room, to serve those who attended the event:

Saturday journal entry:

This picture of my bowl of blessings is even more precious now. I’m so glad I took it. It’s gone—a symbol of how temporal everything but love is.

GoDSaltCrystalsI’m doing a quick blog here to share my knowledge and some links about Solay (or Sole) from Himalayan Pink Salt. I first heard about it from my terrific “salt” friends at Sea salt Therapy. Love it!—and them! I’ve also got several colleagues in the wellness field that love it as well. It’s a simple and inexpensive remedy for enhancing health. I sell the salt as one of my products available from GoDesana. http://www.godesana.com/healingpathway.

snifflesLessons in Vulnerability

What happens when a “healer” gets sick? Well I’m afraid in this is a lot like the understanding that doctors and nurses often are horrible patients! So much of my experience and learning over the past 20 years of my natural health training has been a lesson in practicing what I preach. Ouch! Shouldn’t wellness be automatic by now? Sadly no.

Welcome to the Healing Pathway Blog… Sometimes my blog will be based on research I’ve discovered, other times it will be just something going on with me that might help someone else in some way.

Still working on getting comments going and not full of spam. Hope to get the comments up and functional sometime soon. Meanwhile, explore away…
