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.

Regina Brett’s 45 Life Lessons

To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me. It is the most requested column I've ever written. My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more: 1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good 2. When in doubt, just take the next small steps 3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Change the way you think. 4. Your job won't take care of you when you are ...

Master Sha in Honolulu this week!

About 3 years ago, Aunty saw Master Sha at the McKinley High School Auditorium, and was almost electrified. He taught us a funny song - Lu La Lu La Li, and about how he came to be a servant of the Divine/God/Allah/etc. He was a cute man, not what I imagined a powerhouse to be. It was an evening of really weird weather - lightning without thunder. Uncle, being of very strict Christian belief, did not want to ...

Warts and Aunty

I used to have warts on my fingers. Everyone was polite to me and no one (except one of my kids) would say "Yewww, you have warts!" so I would nonchalantly treat them from time to time with prescription wart medicine, over the counter wart medicine, and even getting them burned off at the doctor's office. It would look like the black hole of Calcutta for a while and seem to go away...... then they would ret ...

Egg Whites for Burns

This from my sister in law: A young man sprinkling his lawn and bushes with pesticides wanted to check the contents of the barrel to see how much pesticide remained in it. He raised the cover and lit his lighter; the vapors inflamed and engulfed him. He jumped from his truck, screaming. His neighbor came out of her house with a dozen eggs, yelling: "bring me some eggs!" She broke them, separating the whites ...

Drugs = Side Effects

I don't like drugs. Although I believe modern medicine has many excellent facets to dealing with disease, it is also allowing us to bypass healthy habits for the quick fix. We all KNOW the basics of what we should be doing - eat less, eat better foods, exercise, poop daily, etc. Modern medicine seems to believe in modern theories - cut it out or dose it with a drug. Naturopathic healers believe the body can ...

I am being a hypocrite here.  I say to everyone that you should exercise but I hardly do myself.  I do love to weed and garden, and that is very good.  I also have started to learn TaiChi in the Young style - my pal Patricia and I take weekly lessons on Tuesdays. TaiChi section 1 Showing for a limited time, for us beginners who still haven't quite remembered the first section.  Thanks Gerri and Virginia! Ta ...

PACE Airplane for building lung capacity

Here’s a great example of a P.A.C.E. workout that can give you more lung power and improve your Age Quotient (Dr. Sear's standard) starting today. It’s called an Airplane. 1.  Stand with your feet together, knees slightly bent and upper body leaning slightly forward. 2.  Hold your arms in front of you about waist height, hands together in a “praying” position. 3.  Spread your arms and swing them backwards, ...

PACE Back Stroke Squat

More P.A.C.E. exercise, thanks to Dr. Al Sears: Remember to do these two things: Use progressivity – Little by little, you increase the intensity of your exertion over time Apply acceleration – Try to reach your intensity target faster, and reduce your recovery time. 1.  Stand with your feet shoulder width apart 2.  Bend slightly at the knees and lean forward, arms hanging straight down 3.  Squat down, and ...

PACE Jumping Side Crunch

Here is another of Dr. Sear's great exercises that even I can do.  He stresses the  5-7-9 intensity scale for working out with POWER Fit, this allows you to get the full benefit of building lung capacity and also endurance. Do your first set for each routine at what would be about an intensity level of 5 for you. That means you’d still be able to speak sentences afterwards, but you’re a little winded. Rest ...
