More than just drugs and/or surgery. There are supplements, therapies, and a whole lot of healing going on – here are some of Aunty’s choices.

4-7-8 Breathing exercise for life, and magnets

Aunty first heard about this 4-7-8 breathing exercise from Kay of Musings.  This supposedly helps you fall asleep, and so Aunty, on the few occasions when it was hard to fall asleep at night, would breathe in, hold, and exhale continuously, and find herself becoming light headed - but still wide awake. Then, a link in one of Dr. Mercola's articles was to Dr. Andrew Weil's instructional video on only doing 4 ...

5 morning stretches – so easy, and they work!

One of the better health newsletters that Aunty subscribes to is Live in the Now.  The articles that arrive in my inbox are daily, and quite interesting.  The sales copy of its Stop Aging Now product line which correspond to health issues are compelling.  The "deals" are enticing.  More times than not, Aunty takes the bait and orders from them. The latest is a topical skin treatment with vitamin C that soun ...

Looking forward to 2017

Lani Kwon, a life coach that Aunty had the pleasure of listening to, sent Aunty an email with a link to an insightful article, entitled "Let go or be dragged into 2017". Based on numerology, the numbers 2, 0, 1, 6 add up to 9 - which is a very fiery, emotional, intense number that also signifies the end of cycles with sudden shocks, dramatic endings, and tying up loose ends. Which will lead us into 2017. Th ...

Whatcha doing?

Nick Polizzi is the Director at The Sacred Science team.  Aunty forgets how she found them, but it began with watching a documentary that they did in the jungles of Peru, taking 8 very ill people to a healing camp.  No running water, no electricity, bugs and critters, strange rituals, and primitive smashed root and bark meals prepared by people that did not speak their language, at all.  One of the rituals ...

Eat to starve cancer and obesity

When Aunty was young, which seems eons ago, hardly anyone had cancer.  Now, it seems commonplace, heart breakingly commonplace, and too often - harsh and fatal.  We live in a different time, with different environmental factors as well as different lifestyles, and we need to take charge of our choices before it is too late. This TED Ed talk by Dr. William Li of the Angiogenesis Foundation explains why and h ...

Aunty’s computer posture – fix!

Aunty's posture has been deteriorating - maybe because of entering the older lady phase of life, but maybe not. TaiChi is helping with balance.  Still, poor posture from sitting hours at the computer watching Korean dramas, blogging, inputting into Quickbooks, google searching, checking emails, etc. etc. etc. was taking its toll.  Playing Kuku-Kube (thanks or No thanks to Jalna, lol) has really made Aunty s ...

Sharing

Aunty is the type of person that holds everything in.  It was how I was raised, and it has served me well thus far.  Maintaining pride, avoiding shame, putting on a smiling face that says that everything is alright.  Very Japanese.  My ancestors would be proud of me. This tradition and upbringing has been Aunty's cloak of invisibility and comfort.  This has been possible because of the undeniable Universal ...

What are you holding on to?

This was originally written 2 years ago and not posted until today, in concurrence with Aunty's "Sharing" post. During the 8th session with Dr. Hana Yin at Brain Fitness Hawaii (no longer in business), something popped into Aunty's consciousness. It started with a question:  What are you holding on to? For Aunty, it was anger and resentment, holding on to bad memories, recalling of upsetting words spoken, a ...

When Aunty gets sick…

It has been years, maybe even decades, since Aunty got sick.  This week, Aunty got sick and felt like she was a 100 year old near dead dog. However, there are actually some good things about getting sick.  One of them is having empathy (the ability to feel what others feel) when other people are sick.  It feels like the pits.  Sore throat, sore body, weak, depressed, listless, headachey, junk. Another is be ...

Tap tap tap to feel good

Decades ago, Aunty took tap dance lessons from Jack Cione with pal Cookie and Gayln.  It was fun making feet noise in time with other feet in the room, but it wasn't a life passion for any of us. During a tidying session (still to come: Aunty's review of Marie Kondo's Life Changing Magic of Tidying), Aunty found 2 thick print outs of Jack Cione's dance steps and songs.  These did bring a sense of joy becaus ...
