Sweet Poison

What is the most common addiction in our society today? Well you may be surprised to learn that it is sugar. That's right, those pretty white crystals sitting on most people's kitchen table. The average American consumes 32 teaspoons of sugar a day. Not only is it addictive, but this very common everyday product that is falsely believed to be harmless is responsible for many health problems we find in our society.


The Miracle of Breath

Do you ever stop and think what an amazing thing our breath is? Probably not. Most of us never give it a thought. It is something we take for granted. Rarely do we stop and think about how it is our life force and without it we would not be alive. Breathing is so simple and intrinsic to our life that we usually don't think about it and most of us are unaware that we breathe improperly. We are taught at an early age to suck in our stomachs and puff out our chests. This is in complete contradiction to proper breathing.


Living with Pain

Pain is an inevitable part of life. In living with a chronic illness or chronic pain, pain is no stranger to us and we are likely to endure more than the average person may endure. Much of the pain that we experience can’t be eliminated or treated, so we have no choice but to learn to live with it. In my struggle to learn how to do this and to still find meaning and purpose in life I have learned many things and developed a new relationship with my pain.
