Article by: JC C alhoun

It is estimated that nearly 20% of adults suffer with allergies and that makes for a heck of a lot of baby boomers. For me, it has already arrived this season with a vengeance. Unfortunately, seasonal allergies can make the spring unpleasant and the fall absolutely miserable. Seasonal allergies can actually impact your ability to function. I remember a summer vacation trip where my car air conditioning broke down and for 5 hours I sneezed 250 times. Ok, maybe it wasn’t exactly 250 times, but it sure felt like it as I swerved down the highway, tears streaming down my face and my head jerking backwards causing some pretty severe whiplash. I kept thinking that if I could just stop breathing that I’d be alright...

Young Women and Addiction

Article by: Casey Markham

Physical dependence and addiction is a serious health threat to any person who abuses drugs, but these threats are often more serious for young women than they are for other groups of people. In fact, in his book Women and Addiction in the United States, Dr. Stephen R. Kandall states that: “the use of drugs by women is due in large part to the stresses they face in society, such as minority status; reduced economic, social, and political expectations; and disproportionate suffering though physical and sexual abuse. For other, more advantaged women, hidden drug abuse may stem from manipulation by the advertising industry, inappropriate medication by physicians, or an attempt to cope with societal barriers to their own self-fulfillment...

Meditation for Beginners

Article by:Bobby Bushnelison

To help you in your journey in meditation it is important to have a regular place to go to for your meditation. I have found through the years that having a routine is helpful. Our bodies, soul and mind seem to respond to this, knowing that it’s time to relax, be peaceful, to meditate.

Also, put up a sign if you have the possibility of being disrupted. You want people to respect your need to be alone, comfortable and have a quiet place to meditate...

Fibromyalgia is not very well-known, it is sometimes difficult to recognize, but it has peculiar symptoms, and there are continuous studies aimed at treating it.

Yoga for Sex: 5 Kundalini Yoga kriyas for a blissful sex life

Article by: Ishika Gill

“I hear Kundalini Yoga is good for sex.”

Time and time again, you overhear someone say this in Kundalini yoga classes. The connection between Kundalini Yoga and sexuality is one of the main points of interest for many beginners to the practice.
