Stop Headaches Now

0 Headaches are so common that some people accept them as a part of life.  Many have been getting headaches for so long they don’t even know what “normal” feels like anymore.  A large percentage of heachaches are mis diagnosed as being caused by stress, sinus, or even migraine headaches when they are actually caused by TMJ dysfunction.  An uneven bite…

The Poverty of Riches

0 Early in my dental career, I sought out mentors – people whom I admired and had achieved what I hoped to achieve. One of my mentors shared a story with me, a parable if you will. It began with a fisherman who lived with his wife and children by the sea. One day, a traveler stopped to talk with him.…

Praise for the Rolf Structural Integration 10 Series

Activities for Children in Ashland

0 My three kids come to work with me here at the Northwest Nature Shop. They have a blast battling each other with foam swords and shields, setting up elaborate nature scenes with our animal replicas, or sitting up at the counter “helping” customers.

Cold Sores, Fever Blisters – Get Rid of Them for Good!

0 I am living proof that hypnotherapy can help alleviate or even eliminate cold sores. Cold sores or fever blisters are related to the herpes 2 virus. This virus hides from the immune system by lying dormant in the nerves until stress triggers it and it manifests as very painful, itchy blisters on the lips or genitals. From the time I…

Principles of Energy Medicine

0 Often when I am asked what I do for a living, and I respond by saying that I am an energy medicine practitioner, I am met with a polite but befuddled smile and something like, “Uh… that’s… nice.” If I pursue this line of conversation further I find that many people have no idea what subtle energy is, let alone…

Homes that Pass the Test of Time

0 In our fast-paced and ever changing culture we seldom have the luxury of making choices based on a long track record of success. This becomes quickly apparent in choosing building products.

The other half of your tree

0 We tend to take tree roots for granted. Being hidden out of sight, and for the most part silent, a tree’s roots are often overlooked (literally), or misunderstood. Remember, half of your tree is, or should be, underground. A tree’s root system has a number of functions, some of which will take a fair amount of imagination to appreciate! How…
