    If you experience diminished sexual energy at some time in your life, you’re not alone. Many women who are perfectly capable of sexual fulfillment find their potential held back by low sexual energy, or common symptoms that interfere with their ability to become fully aroused. Female baby boomers in particular report low sexual desire in numerous health surveys.

  • Condition Spotlight: Combat UTIs Naturally

    Current data estimates that over 450,000 women in the United States suffer from urinary-tract infections (UTIs).

  • Delta Psychology

    The core idea behind Delta Psychology is when our emotions harmonize (or at least calm where you can experience them with awareness), they can liberate vital energy that will support our healing forces. I’m not claiming that simply feeling and integrating our emotions in a more serene manner is enough to cure an illness.

  • 5 Herbs for Comfort and Wellness

    For many of us, getting comfortable is often the subject of daydreams or relegated to weekends or vacations. Common signs of discomfort, such as stiffness, insomnia, depression, chronic pains, and early signs of aging, are ways our bodies communicate the need for action to support our health and wellness.

    There’s a lot of information out there on brain health these days. Most of it is very helpful if you want to improve core brain functions such as memory or even relieve some psychiatric symptoms. Yet, spirituality leads to higher states of experience and maturity, also referred to as psychospirituality.

  • Caring for the Prostate

    The prostate is an odd, walnut-sized organ at the base of the pelvis below the bladder. When functioning properly, most men don’t even know it’s there. On the other hand, men with a prostate issue think of little else. Conditions like prostate cancer, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), and prostatitis can cause pain and discomfort, and dramatically reduce quality of life.

    An integrative lifestyle can help you be proactive with your prostate.

  • Toxic Teeth

    The prospect of having a root canal can be a nerve-wrenching experience to most people. Teeth treated with root canals tend to get re-infected and/or fractured because, essentially, they are mummified teeth.
