Make Your Routine a Priority for Positive Mental Health

Make Your Routine a Priority for Positive Mental Health

Today, we will discuss ways for you to develop positive routines in your life, as well as tips to help you feel more healthy, productive, and at ease during this period. There are many benefits to keeping an everyday routine in terms of our mental health. This applies to adults, adolescents, and children alike. According to a research review done by psychologist Dr. Barbara H. Fiese and others in the United States, kids are healthier, and their behavior is better regulated when there are predictable routines in the family. Young ones with a regular set bedtime get to sleep sooner and wake up less frequently in the night. Routines for infants can even shorten the period of a respiratory illness! As easy as it is to get up and immediately grab a cup of coffee and check our phone or email, there is a better option. Try to wake up slowly, take some deep breaths, let some bright light into the room, and do some light stretching to increase blood flow. When we rise in the morning, our bodies are dehydrated from a lack of water for many hours. One of the best habits we should include in our morning routine is to enjoy a tall glass of water, which also aids in digestion and metabolism. Daily exercise and sun exposure are key elements to a healthy, happy life. Simple exercises can include taking a walk around the neighborhood or bodyweight exercises such as lunges, air squats, pushups, crunches, and more.We can’t forget about diet! The vegan diet is essential to overall health, both physically and mentally. A vegan diet has been scientifically proven to lower blood pressure, reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, aid in preventing type 2 diabetes, lessen the risk of cancer, help improve cholesterol levels, reduces one’s chance of stroke, lower the risk of Alzheimer’s and dementia, and reduce all causes of mortality by 25%. The most important foods you can incorporate into your diet immediately for better health are legumes, fruit, green leafy vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds. The compassionate vegan diet includes mental health benefits as well.

Taiwan Adventist Hospital – A Vegetarian Hospital with a Caring Mission, Part 1 of 3

Taiwan Adventist Hospital – A Vegetarian Hospital with a Caring Mission, Part 1 of 3

Taiwan Adventist Hospital is one of over 170 healthcare institutions run by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, a Protestant Christian denomination with approximately 25 million people attending weekly worship worldwide. The facility is Formosa’s first vegetarian hospital and was initially founded in Shanghai by the legendary vegetarian American physician, Dr. Harry W. Miller, before shifting to Taipei. Known as the “China Doctor,” this Seventh-day Adventist served as a medical missionary in China for almost 70 years. In the latter part of his life, he fundraised to help establish 20 Adventist hospitals in the Far East. “We follow the spirit of Jesus Christ in providing holistic care,” is Taiwan Adventist Hospital’s mission. Holistic care is a system that cultivates a harmonious relationship among patients, families, and medical professionals while addressing the needs of the body, mind, and spirit to achieve the attainment of optimal health. To further this Christian holistic care mission, the hospital has adopted the SHARE concept to provide patients and visitors with thoughtful and heartwarming service. The goal is to also deliver compassionate and professional medical treatment. Taiwan Adventist Hospital has been providing vegetarian meals since its establishment, reflecting the guidance of Ellen White, one of the founders of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. She greatly influenced church doctrines, particularly concerning health and diet. In medicine, it’s well known that prevention is better than a cure. Unfortunately, many people only begin to value their health after they become seriously ill. That is why the Taiwan Adventist Hospital promotes a vegetarian diet, along with a healthy lifestyle. The vegetarian recipes used at the Taiwan Adventist Hospital feature whole foods that are low in fat, salt, and sugar. Since these recipes are beneficial for disease prevention as well as aiding treatment and postoperative care, the hospital provides healthy vegetarian food not just to patients, but also to visitors.

Birding: Connecting Us with Nature, Part 1 of 2

Also known as bird watching, it is defined as the hobby of studying birds in the wild. It is one of the fastest-growing hobbies in North America. Birding is gaining in popularity for very good reasons: it has many solid benefits for the body, mind and spirit. Getting to and from your birding spot usually includes hiking, which is great cardiovascular exercise. And while doing so, you are breathing in fresh air and soaking up the sun and producing natural vitamin D. Birding also enhances mental alertness and makes one physically engaged as it takes quick eyes and arm coordination to scan and track our fast-moving feathered friends using binoculars. Birding involves being in nature for long periods of time, which contributes to better mental health. According to a paper called “Doses of Neighborhood Nature” published in 2017 in the journal BioScience, the more birds the respondents saw, the less they were depressed and anxious. Moreover, birding requires focus and being quiet, similar to meditation. And when you finally see the birds after a long wait, their sheer beauty will catch your heart immediately, and you will concentrate on what’s happening at that moment – the head bobbing, the tail flicking, the colorful plumage, their curious hops, and heavenly song as if nothing else exists.For maximum birding enjoyment, here are the essentials to prepare before your outing: The first requirement is a good field guide. For a novice, each bird you encounter is a mystery, and playing detective to solve the case is a core part of birding fun. Thanks to modern technology, there are many field guide apps to aid in your detective work, and some of them are free! If you cannot or don’t feel like traveling that far, you can simply try birding in your backyard. You may be surprised by how many bird species visit your garden. Here are some tips for backyard birders…

John Jezewski (vegan): Wellness Is in Our Hands, Part 1 of 2

Today, it is our privilege to feature excerpts from our interview with John Jezewski. He has been a registered homeopath and Living Nutrition Practitioner for almost 30 years and treated hundreds of people. This gentleman from the UK is a specialist in living nutrition, alkaline health, chronic disease, weight loss, longevity, and mental and emotional health. Additionally, he is an inspiring health coach and the founder and principal of the College of Living Nutrition that offers accredited nutrition courses in London and Birmingham for those interested in training to become a professional nutrition therapist. Mr. Jezewski is a proponent of the alkaline vegan diet. This lifestyle features a high intake of fruits, vegetables, and other healthy plant foods while restricting processed junk foods. Advocates of this way of eating say this particular diet helps maintain wellness and repels serious diseases. Our blood tends typically to be on the slightly alkaline side with a pH between 7.35 and 7.45. Therefore, by choosing more alkaline foods, it means that you may be able to “alkalize” your body to achieve or maintain the ideal pH level. “So there is a big problem. Big, big problem with people becoming too acidic, and then they resort to taking antacids. But again, you need to get to the root cause. And the root cause is eating too much food, too many drinks that are acidic. If you’re drinking cola, you’re drinking coffee, you’re drinking tea, you’re eating chips - deep-fried chips, all of this is adding to the acidity problem. And it’s a big problem. So you need to eat alkaline food, which is vegan, and alkaline - not acidic.”

The Dangers of Microplastics to Health, Part 1 of 2

The Dangers of Microplastics to Health, Part 1 of 2

We are surrounded by plastic. It’s used for food packaging, shopping bags, computer parts, cosmetics, clothing, home appliances, and so on. Plastics are made from a wide range of synthetic, semi-synthetic and naturally occurring compounds. Scientifically speaking, these compounds are composed of repeating monomers, which are based on the bonding of carbon and other elements, such as hydrogen, oxygen, sulfur, etc. It is these repeating monomers that make plastics strong, lightweight, and flexible. Only recently has there been an increasing awareness of health consequences to humans from plastics. Plastics are currently produced at a rate of approximately 320 million tons per year, and an astonishing 40% of this amount can be classified as single-use, leading to unending piles of plastic waste. Microplastics are less than 5 millimeters in diameter. Some microplastics originally were macroplastics, but they disintegrated into smaller fragments by mechanical abrasion and ultraviolet (UV) exposure. Due to their light weight, microplastics can easily recirculate between seawater and beach sediments via winds and currents. Not only are marine animals endangered by the presence of microplastics in seawater but algae are also victims of the toxicity leached from them. Microplastics have significant negative impacts on tissue, cellular and biochemical functions of organisms. The resulting deaths from microplastics exposure imperil biodiversity and ecosystems. In a 2015 study, scientists found microplastics in 15 brands of table salt available in the consumer market in China. The products sourced the salt from oceans, lakes, or rocks. The scientists found nearly 700 microplastic pieces in size down to 45 micrometers in one kilogram of sea salt. Among them, the predominate plastic detected was polyethylene terephthalate (PET) which is commonly used to make single-use bottles for water and other packaged drinks. In addition to the dietary exposure pathway, evidence for atmospheric fallout containing microplastics has been found.

Aromatherapy and the Benefits of Essential Oils

Aromatherapy and the Benefits of Essential Oils

Have you ever tried aromatherapy? It is a holistic method of promoting wellness that uses aromatic materials extracted from plants. Flowers, herbs, roots, bark, and leaves are distilled or mechanically pressed to obtain their essence in the form of oil. In 1997, the International Standards Organization (ISO) issued an official definition of essential oil as follows: a “product obtained from vegetable raw material, either by distillation with water or steam, or from the epicarp of citrus fruits by a mechanical process, or by dry distillation.” Scientific analysis has found that numerous essential oils have antimicrobial, antiviral, antifungal, and antioxidant properties. Aromatherapy is generally implemented via inhalation or topical application. When the scent of an essential oil is inhaled, its chemical components bind to a smell receptor in the nose. From there, a signal is transmitted to the olfactory bulb that is located just above the nasal cavity and beneath the forebrain. The bulb sends olfactory information to various parts of the brain, including the limbic system, which supports the processing of emotions. Essential oils can also affect the hypothalamus, which creates feel-good brain chemicals such as dopamine. For a study published in the International Journal of Nursing Practice, participants pinned a small bottle of 3% lavender oil to the clothing on their chests. The results showed that stress symptoms were significantly reduced for the nurses inhaling the fragrance compared to a control group, and the beneficial effect lasted for 3 to 4 days. Let's discuss how you can give yourself an aromatherapy session at home by inhaling essential oils. One way is to prepare a bowl of steaming hot water in a sink and add a few drops of your chosen extract. Bend over the sink and breathe in deeply, with an optional towel over your head to trap extra moisture. For Valentine's Day in 2008, Supreme Master Ching Hai recorded a cooking show and heated some lavender oil to complement the atmosphere of the meal. “And this is the aromatic burner. I put some aroma oil in it with water, and it's going to boil during your food, your meal, and it will help you relax also. This is lavender and water. You can buy it anywhere - it’s very relaxing and aromatic. Smells nice already! Smells nice. Everything smells nice.”

Soaking It In: Therapeutic Benefits of Hot Springs

12:31

Soaking It In: Therapeutic Benefits of Hot Springs

In our time together today, we will talk about hot springs and their health benefits. What is a hot spring? Hot springs, also called geothermal springs, come from geothermally heated groundwater. They can form in several ways. One of the common ways is when the groundwater is in contact with rocks that have been heated by magma or molten rock deep beneath the Earth’s surface. Hot springs have been used for thousands of years for their health-promoting properties. That's because soaking in hot springs can be very relaxing, and the water in natural hot springs can contain a variety of minerals, such as sulfur, silica, calcium, sodium, selenium and many more. Many scientists from Japan, Europe and the Middle East have been studying balneotherapy, which is the treatment of disease by bathing in waters containing minerals. Not only do humans enjoy hot potting, but also capybara-persons, the largest rodent-people in the world, know how to enjoy themselves by taking a nice hot bath in thermal springs. When they soak in the natural hot tub, the bliss on their faces just says everything about how enjoyable it is. Bathing in hot water can boost blood circulation by raising body temperature. Researchers have found that immersing in hot water increases the level of nitric oxide in the blood. Nitric oxide is a natural chemical produced in the body that dilates the blood vessels. When the blood vessels are expanded, they relax and become wider, allowing the blood to carry more oxygenated red blood cells and nutrients to cells in the body. Not only does a rise in the nitric oxide level give a greater blood supply to various parts of the body, but the widened blood vessels also help to lower blood pressure. Hot spring immersion helps reduce stress and promotes sleep. Bathing in mineral water is beneficial for relaxing tense muscles to lessen stress. Meanwhile, the effect of your body temperature rising in the bath and then cooling after getting out can help you relax and fall into a deeper sleep. When you become less stressed, your outlook will become more vibrant as a result of the improvement in your overall physical and mental health.

Protecting the Vulnerable During the COVID-19 Pandemic, Part 1 of 2

13:10

Protecting the Vulnerable During the COVID-19 Pandemic, Part 1 of 2

Worries and fears are in the hearts of everyone during this time of unease. This is especially the case for medically vulnerable populations who tend to carry these emotional burdens significantly more than healthy individuals. Older adults (those 70-plus years of age) and people who have underlying medical conditions such as a non-severe lung condition, heart disease, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, liver disease, as well as those with a weakened immune system or are very obese are assumed to be at moderate risk for becoming seriously ill if infected by the coronavirus. Older adults with health conditions who are not leaving their homes at all right now may feel lonely, especially if their daily routine included regular interactions with family, friends or care providers. I'd like to share some simple ways you can help ease their concerns and raise their spirits during this time. Check in with them frequently by phone or even better, by video. National governments have posted public health protection measures and assistance information on their websites to help their citizens cope with this crisis. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC, a US government agency, provides practical advice to those with an underlying medical condition to follow during the pandemic. Here is an abbreviated list of recommendations for such persons from the CDC website. * Continue your medicines and do not change your treatment plan without talking to your doctor. * Have at least a 30-day supply of prescription and non-prescription medicines. * Do not delay getting emergency care for your underlying condition because of COVID-19. * Call your healthcare provider if you have any concerns about your underlying medical conditions or if you get sick and think you may have COVID-19. As long as the number of infected people and death toll is increasing worldwide, we all have the responsibility to take necessary precautions such as social distancing, wearing masks and practicing personal hygiene. Our beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai also reminds us of the importance of safeguarding ourselves from COVID-19. All of Supreme Master Ching Hai’s tips for protection during the COVID-19 (and any other) pandemic are free for viewing and download at MastersTipsOnCOVID-19.com

The Traditional Chinese Way to a Healthy & Happy Winter

The Traditional Chinese Way to a Healthy & Happy Winter

“The Inner Classic of the Yellow Emperor” also states that winter is a time for lower metabolism and energy storage. It is best to go to bed early and rise with the Sun. As the kidneys represent the reservoir of willpower, we should let our minds enter a state of dormancy and refrain from focusing on the outside world. Avoiding the cold and keeping warm is recommended. As to which parts of the body especially need safeguarding from the cold, it is crucial to pay attention to the back and feet. According to TCM, one’s winter diet should focus on nourishing the yin and tonifying the yang to enhance the body’s resistance and immune system. Black-colored vegan foods are thought to be good for the kidneys and thus should grace our dining table in the cold season.

Forgiveness for Good Health

13:22

Forgiveness for Good Health

In recent years, the scientific community has been actively exploring the mind-body connection. In its simplest terms, this means that our thoughts and emotions can affect our health. A study published in the “American Journal of Cardiology” found that forgiveness protects heart health, while negative emotions have a toxic effect on the heart. Another scientific study that demonstrated the benefits of forgiving was done with type II diabetes patients. Dr. Ece Yazla from the Department of Psychiatry at Hitit University in Turkey and others discovered that as patients forgave more and more, the stress caused by the disease became less and less. The quality of relationships between the participants and their loved ones improved. Also, they were more able to cope with their health situation and had more support from others. Forgiving can improve our physical, mental, and emotional well-being. It’s good for our own peace of mind, happiness, and health. Apart from the mind-body connection, spiritually speaking, forgiveness is ending the negative thoughts and resolving the negative karma with another person. Once we forgive by dropping the negative feelings toward others or ourselves, we will feel lighter and happier.

Guarding Health with Innovative Wearable Devices, Part 1 of 2

Wearable healthcare technology refers to the devices on a wearer’s wrists, head, feet or clothing, which can collect their health metrics and save them in a personalized database to help set their well-being goals or send to healthcare professionals with permission for remote monitoring and analysis.Wearable technology benefits all healthcare community members: For individuals, it’s affordable, personal, and can provide continuous, 24/7 and stable fitness tracking. In addition to tracking our daily activities, fitness trackers can also record data during sleep, including hours of uninterrupted sleep and the duration of sleep. Moreover, wearable healthcare technology can provide instant feedback on one’s health improvements as a result of exercise and healthy lifestyle changes, which helps users a great deal to become engaged and stick to good new habits.Let’s have a look at some of the latest wearable healthcare technologies by category: Wrist-worn devices: For well-being monitoring, there are several advantages to developing a technical device for the wrist: It’s more convenient to view information and easier to carry than a mobile phone during activities such as biking, hiking and swimming. Wrist-worn devices like fitness trackers and smartwatches are already reckoned as mainstream for general biometrics monitoring and activity tracking. Advanced wearable devices can play a role in chronic health condition management as well.Smart Shoes: Although still in the early stages of development, there are already quite a few smart shoes integrated with high-tech features to enhance comfort and health. The Digitsole Smart Insoles are intelligent footwear inserts that analyze the wearer’s walking and running posture to enhance daily life and fitness. While there are numerous fall alert devices available, B-Shoe is a much-needed type of smart footwear aiming at preventing falls before they occur. Lechal (“take me there” in Hindi) haptic smart footwear developed by Ducere Technologies in India is a groundbreaking solution to guide the way for the unsighted.

Caring for Your Liver

18:14

Caring for Your Liver

In today’s show, “Caring for Your Liver,” we will learn about the importance of the liver and tips to care for it. Did you know that the liver is the only internal organ that can regenerate itself? One of the major functions of the liver is to produce bile for the digestion and absorption of fats and cholesterol in the small intestine. Bile also helps with uptake of vitamin K, which in fact is a group of organic compounds essential for blood to clot normally. The liver processes bilirubin from spent hemoglobin and helps remove it from the body. According to the Center for Disease Analysis (CDA) in Colorado, USA, about 89 million Americans have this condition without being aware of it. Such a pervasive lack of knowledge is actually understandable because the illness usually has no symptoms, but there is no lack of consequences. In 2021, a research published in the Journal of Gastrointestinal and Liver Diseases showed that people with NAFLD have improved liver function and weight loss after following a vegan diet for six months. Other studies have found that a high-fiber plant-based diet can reduce liver fat, and the antioxidants in these foods help to limit inflammation. These are important takeaways from our presentation, since there are currently no pharmaceuticals available for fatty liver disease. By eliminating fast food, you can retrain your taste buds to appreciate and enjoy fruits, vegetables, beans and whole grains. Furthermore, establishing a good habit of regular exercise can reinforce the positive outcome of adopting a healthy vegan diet for maintaining a healthy weight. We hope that our show has inspired you to adopt a healthier lifestyle. Take good care of your liver by switching to a vegan diet. Benefit your whole body through regular physical activity. And upgrade your future by making good decisions and treating others with kindness.

Having Fun and Staying Healthy by Surfing, Part 1 of 2

Having Fun and Staying Healthy by Surfing, Part 1 of 2

In Peru approximately 2000 years ago, the Peruvians built reed grass boats called totora horses (caballos de totora). These traditional surf craft are still made today from the local totora reeds and are popular among tourists and surfers alike. Surfing also has a rich history in ancient Hawaii, where riding waves was once reserved as a cultural ritual for chiefs and the upper social hierarchy of the villages and was also used as a peaceful way to resolve conflict. He discovered that there was a surfing culture in ancient China from its first appearance in the glory days of the Song Dynasty (960-1279). The art of surfing is now enjoyed worldwide. With the evolution of the wetsuit, all oceans from the equator to Antarctica can now be surfed in comfort. Water has always offered a cleansing experience, and saltwater is also rich in minerals dispersed by ocean plants, rocks and other sources. A state of being connected with the ocean’s mystical energy has been described by many surfers as a feeling of emotional cleansing when they are in the sea. "It’s just an incredible feeling. And when you’re actually, surfing the wave, I think it’s like a meditation. You are just one with the wave. Like you’re so focused, but then at the same time, you’re really at ease." "It teaches you to be calm, and the ocean is a powerful, powerful, powerful place." This attitude of learning to relax in turbulent situations becomes ingrained in one’s way of life, and surfers are renowned for their laid back and relaxed attitude.Supreme Master Ching Hai has explained about the beneficial spiritual merit points that individuals accumulate from exposure to the sun. "If they are vegan and they don’t even practice meditation – they’re just vegan because of compassion – and they sit in the sun on the beach – and they sit in the sun on the beach – you know, people go “beaching” (Yes.) in summer? – even they sit in the sun to bathe, sunbathing, they get 6 million points per hour, okay? Now, if people are non-vegetarian even, and sunbathe in the sun, for example, on the beach or on a balcony, they get even 100,000 points per hour, just for sitting under the sun, yes."

Professor Timaree Hagenburger (vegan): Peaking With Plant-Based Sports Nutrition, Part 1 of 3

Today, we are privileged to invite Professor Hagenburger to talk about plant-based sports nutrition. She is an American registered dietitian nutritionist with a master’s degree in public health, a nutrition professor at Cosumnes River College in Sacramento, California, as well as a certified Exercise Physiologist through the American College of Sports Medicine. “I don't know that there's any sports without plant-based athletes now. Everything from Olympic runners to strongman Patrik Baboumian. The goal of nutrition around exercise is going to be to maintain blood sugar, also avoid hunger and, very important, to minimize or eliminate any stomach issues, GI (gastrointestinal) upset, but also to obviously maximize performance and training.” “Endurance events can actually put quite a bit of stress on the body and cause oxidative damage and oxidative stress and inflammation. The antioxidants can reduce the damage and the oxidative stress to the cells. So the plant-based diet is really important for endurance athletes, not only for performance, but also for safety and long-term. And with exercise, remember, that causes muscle damage and it can cause inflammation. So, the more of the plant-based foods that we eat and the variety of them, the more we can protect, not only our cells and the cell membranes, but also our blood vessels. With the Adventist Health Study, people who ate meat even just once a week had a much higher, 40% or more, risk of arthritis and soft tissue damage.” “And so, the omega-3 eicosanoids that are made are very pro-health. They reduce inflammation. But what happens in our normal society now is people are eating a lot of the omega-6 fats and those are pro-inflammatory. A lot of those are found in processed food. And we also see omega-6 very high in poultry. So, we don't want those in our body. We want to reduce the omega-6 and have adequate omega-3. We have seen an explosion of plant-based eating styles in all athletes all across different sports because, in part, that this low inflammation can allow for recovery.”

Dr. Debra Shapiro (vegan): Champion of Women’s Health, Part 3 of 3

According to the World Health Organization, the number one cause of death for women and men globally is cardiovascular disease. “Heart disease is a huge problem. But it is preventable with a healthy enough plant-based diet and other lifestyle changes. And it's so prevalent now. And so known now that it can be done, that a past president of the American College of Cardiology, Kim Williams, actually said, famously said, that there are two types of cardiologists: vegans and those who haven't read the literature.” What parents feed to children during their early years is critical to their wellness in future years. “And they can see already in the blood vessels, some thickening of the blood vessels, it starts in the womb. By age 10, we're already seeing in children fatty streaks. By age 10!” Dr. Shapiro says there are four pillars that support a healthy lifestyle for women: a plant-based diet, sleep, exercise, and having connections with others. “Exercise is super important, and it's important also to release endorphins. And another way that you get feel-good hormones, and hormones that improve your mood is actually to eat a plant-based diet because it changes the microbiome, the microbiota, the types of bacteria that are in your gut, and most of your serotonin, another very important hormone in your dopamine, is made in your gut by these bacteria, and you will have much more of them if you eat a plant-based diet. Sleep is a very important time for your brain to rejuvenate. This is the time you could almost imagine that little garbage trucks go through your brain and pull out all the little tangles and the little plaque, and they get rid of them.” “And lastly, we need connections. We notice this so much now with the current pandemic, too. People are really suffering from being isolated. You can use the phone. You can have Zoom; we have Zoom meetings with our families. You need to connect with other people; you need to eat healthy food, and you need to get out in nature. That would be my prescription for getting through this pandemic. And that's what I do every day.”

She is a board-certified pediatrician and a certified Lifestyle Medicine Physician, a national board-certified health and wellness coach and a professional speaker. Dr. Yami founded the website VeggieFitKids.com where she shares information on plant-based diets, recipes and lifestyle tips. Dr. Yami is also the author of “A Parent’s Guide to Intuitive Eating: How to Raise Kids Who Love to Eat Healthy,” that provides a unique approach to establishing positive eating habits for children that will last a lifetime. One common concern for parents considering changing their children’s diet to a plant-based one is whether it provides enough nutrition. “And so, I feel like my experience has taught me that not only is it possible, but you can raise children that are happy, responsible, loving, compassionate people in this world when they're eating a plant-based diet.” “The majority of children do not enjoy meat, and parents stress out about that and I tell them, don't worry. Intuitive eating means that you are tuning into your body, honoring your hunger and your satiety. And you are tuning into how your body feels after you eat. And so that way it gives you information to make your food choices. It was originally coined by 2 dieticians, Evelyn Tribole, and Elyse Resch and they started learning about intuitive eating in the 1980s. They wrote their book in 1995, and it consists of 10 principles, and this is evidence-based.” “And what I want parents to know and to realize is that children are born intuitive eaters. They know when they're hungry; they know when to stop. So, I encourage parents to trust that, to realize that under the age of 5, most children have the ability to tell when they're hungry and [when] they’re full, and so whenever we trust that, we are more likely to support continuing that intuition and then staying in our lane as far as what are the responsibilities we have as parents, which is to make the choices for the food that we want to provide, prepare the food and offer the food, and then it is up to the child to decide if and how much they want to eat.”

Music Therapist Eva Hamer (vegan): The Compelling Health Benefits of Music Therapy, Part 1 of 2

Ms. Hamer received her Bachelors of Music in Music Therapy from Western Michigan University in the United States, and became a certified music therapist after the completion of her internship at a hospice. With many years of experience in music-related treatment, Ms. Hamer sees great potential in music to enrich people’s lives and provide comfort. Currently, she extends her compassion to the people of the animal kingdom by being part of the animal-people rights movement as Legal Coordinator for Direct Action Everywhere, a Shining World Courage-Compassion recipient. “Music can be used for wellness as well as to treat illnesses and disorders and music therapists can work on enhancing wellness in addition to treating disorders.” “Music therapy’s origins happened around the 1940s.” During the course of treatment, many practices can be employed to suit the needs of individuals, including listening or dancing to music, singing, playing instruments, or discussing music. “I think basically anyone can benefit from music therapy or from music wellness programs. It's particularly beneficial to babies and mothers in the NICU, for people on hospice, for kids in special education programs, for people with physical disabilities, for people with brain damage, and for people with emotional disabilities or emotional disturbances. In coordination with qualified psychotherapists, music can really be used to kind of provide a safe container for exploring psychological issues. When we think about music that makes you cry, sometimes we can kind of have emotions that are really pent up.” “Often religious music is used in hospice, music that's particularly important to a person in their faith; it can kind of bring up a feeling of sacredness and safety to be able to really examine some of these things that we need to deal with while we're coming towards the end of our lives.” When we are absorbed into the melody of music, it seems as if we are enclosed in a sphere where we can temporarily forget all the stress. Sometimes, it even lessens our pain mentally and physically. “And when the music, and the breathing, the biological rhythm are synced up, the music therapist has the ability to actually slow down that music, and thus slow down the biological rhythm that we’ve synced up to and actually make the breathing slower and longer in a way that really relaxes patients and reduces pain and respiratory distress.”

Proper Emotion Management Makes Us Healthier

Proper Emotion Management Makes Us Healthier

Emotions not only influence our quality of life but also affect our physical and mental health. Positive feelings like happiness and satisfaction can stimulate our creativity, and enhance our empathy, thus encouraging us to assist others. When encountering setbacks or pressure, we may have negative feelings, such as anxiety and frustration, which impact our bodies, by causing our blood pressure to rise as well as heartburn and other ailments to be experienced. The emergence of negative feelings can mean that some of our needs or sentiments are ignored. Expressing our repressed feelings allows us a chance to reflect on ourselves and remind us to examine things with a more positive attitude. We can seek support and advice to dissolve the dissatisfactions in our hearts. If we are feeling down, we can think of things that make us happy, the people that we’d like to thank, or do something we like, such as listening to music, exercising, meditating, or practicing yoga. Even just breathing a few times deeply can make us feel relaxed and pacified emotionally. “Don’t stop your anger or hurtful feeling. Just go through it and quickly, with no resentment and heal it after. Anger, hurt, pain is the natural feeling of physical elements. It’s just you don’t know how to handle anger, that is the problem. Okay? If somebody hurts you, of course you feel hurt. You are not a wooden table. And when people provoke you unreasonably, or you think that they provoke you, you are bound to be angry, and that is all right. But we must understand, the nature of anger is not very constructive most of the time. So if we have to be angry, get it over with. Don’t try to suppress too much your anger. You’ll be sick. You’ll be crazy. It’s a natural feeling. Don’t carry it too long; you’ll drown yourself in anger. It’s no good for yourself and for the party involved. Get angry, talk. You don’t have to be sarcastic or hurtful when you talk. Just air your view and tell them that they made you angry because, because, because... And you wish that in the future it doesn’t happen again because you are not... going to tolerate it again. Air your view, finish, and love each other again. That’s what I think. But we just know, the anger, the quality and the real face of anger, and we’re in control of it, and don’t let the anger be our master. Anger suppressed can make you ill physically. So don’t hurt yourself more by swallowing the poisonous anger within you. Spit it out in a proper way.”
