Raw Avocado-Broccoli Soup with Cashew Nuts

Description:
Did you know that avocados have several health benefits? Scientists have proved that a certain toxin present in avocados is able to kill cancer cells - it is used both in prevention and treatment of prostate and breast cancers. Furthermore, potassium in avocado can regulate pressure of blood, and oleic acid in avocado can be used to lower cholesterol level in the blood.


Dandelion and Tomato Salad

Description:
Pity the American dandelion. In countries across the world the dandelion is considered a delicious vegetable and is consumed with affection–and dandelion has been used for medicinal purposes for centuries. In America, it is most often cursed as an irksome weed and is pulled, poisoned and otherwise generally maligned. Dandelion gets its name from the French "dents de lion", or lion's teeth, which describes the jagged edges on the leaves. The "lion" part might be there due to the fact that the fluffy yellow flowers of the plant resemble a lion's furry mane. Dandelion greens are loaded with beta carotene, the carotenoid phytonutrient that is a precursor to vitamin A. Dandelions help to support digestion. Known to reduce swelling and inflammation. Traditionally used as an anti-viral, treatment for gout, eczema, jaundice, and edema. Function as both mild laxative and gentle diuretic properties to purify the blood and cleanse the system. Dandelion greens have a reputation for bitterness, but they are nicely so, and the bitterness is balanced by a lovely spiciness similar to arugula. Mature greens can get pretty bitter, but this can be tamed by blanching them. The time to harvest dandelion greens is early in the spring, when they are their youngest and before they flower. They can be harvested again in late fall as they loose some of their bitterness after a frost. Look for young dandelions growing in rich, moist soil, making sure not to forage close to roads. They taste fresh and easy to add to any salad! This recipes is so simple to make.


Fresh Cherry Crisp

Description:
What says summer more than cherries? This is a delicious cherry crisp made with fresh cherries instead of canned. It may take a little longer to make because you need to pit the cherries, but it is well worth it when you taste the finished product. The nutritional benefits of cherries are pretty big, particularly when you consider their small size. Many of the health benefits of cherries are related to the natural chemical that gives them their color. Anthocyanins give flowers, berries and other fruits the colors ranging from red to blue. Some of the best food sources of anthocyanins are red grapes, chokeberry, eggplant and, of course, cherries. These pigments attract pollinators, act as a “sunscreen” and protect the plant from radicals formed by UV light, so they act as antioxidants. The antioxidant benefits are transferred to people when the fruits or vegetables are eaten. Anthocyanins are also natural pain relievers and anti-inflammatories. They inhibit the production of COX-2 enzymes, as do over the counter and prescription pain relievers. Natural anti-inflammatories are believed to reduce the risk of many types of cancer. But, there are more nutritional benefits of cherries. Cherries contain melatonin, another natural pain reliever and COX-2 inhibitor. Melatonin also helps to regulate sleep cycles and has been sold as a natural sleep aid. Reduced levels of melatonin have been associated with heart disease and increased cancer rates in night workers. The human body naturally produces melatonin, but primarily in darkness. Constant artificial lighting present in most homes and work places reduces the amount of melatonin that the body produces. So, one of the health benefits of cherries to modern day man has to do with replacing some of the melatonin that has been lost to artificial light, unhealthy work schedules and unnatural sleep patterns. And, there are more nutritional benefits of cherries. Cherries, like most fruits, contain vitamin C. The proven and suspected health benefits of cherries and other vitamin C rich foods are too numerous to be covered in this recipe.

Question

Which muscle of the human body is the strongest? Will I lose weight faster by focusing most of my training on developing this muscle?

Reply

The strongest muscle in the body is debatable. Some physiologists believe it's the masseter (used for chewing), while others claim it's the gluteus maximus (buttocks), or the rectus femoris (part of the quadriceps in the thigh). It's not easy to determine partly because muscles don't work alone. For example, you wouldn't be able to isolate the rectus femoris muscle and compare it directly to others because other quadriceps muscles contract along with it. There are biomechanical factors to consider as well like muscle length and the points on the bones where muscles attach called the origins and insertions.
What it sounds like you are getting at is the idea that if the strongest muscle in your body burns the most calories, then building it up would cause it to burn even more calories to help you lose weight. In pursuing this idea, I would go after the largest muscle in the body and not the strongest (particularly if it's the masseter), because surface area of the muscle has more impact on calorie expenditure than strength. What would be even better is to train a muscle that is both large and strong.
With this idea in mind, I suggest maximizing muscle surface area by building up the quadriceps and the gluteals (buttocks), two large and strong muscle groups. Train them with dynamic, multi-joint exercises like squats, leg presses, stair climbing, and lunges. Not only will these exercises help you develop your quads and glutes, but they also recruit muscles in the abdomen and back which will help you develop even more muscle and burn more calories.
Thank you for your question.

I Can Do It! Vancouver 2014 Review by Mel MacGregor

The Queen Elizabeth Theatre was the setting for I Can Do It! Vancouver 2014 which featured fourteen of Hay House’s favorite authors and speakers.

The two-day conference kicked off with a keynote address by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer. During his three hours on stage he spoke about his new book I Can See Clearly Now, praised the Wheat Belly book, ranted about Monsanto, quoted Moses and Rumi, brought his daughter on stage for a musical interlude, and delivered Dyer-isms such as “friends are God’s way of apologizing for your family.”

After lunch Caroline Myss took the stage for a feisty hour-long chat about transformation. The goal was to increase the audience’s awareness of our interconnected global community. More than once she threatened to stick our heads in a toilet for seven seconds. Then she reminded us to never underestimate the power of the Divine to come in and kick ass.
The energetic and charismatic Bruce Lipton wowed the crowd with his presentation entitled The Honeymoon Effect. Bruce’s love of chemistry, cell biology, atoms, and science was so passionate that it was hard to not get excited about charts, statistics, and being a skin-covered petri dish.

Calm and reverence infused the auditorium when Anita Moorjani shared her story of end-stage cancer, her experience in the other realm, and her return to this time and place. Her message was one of love and valuing yourself, and the audience responded in kind with a standing ovation.

Next, Nancy Levin shared her story of divorce and healing her pain through poetry. Then it was time to pull out the tissues as Alex Woodard revealed heartbreaking stories of loss through slideshows and songs.

The final keynote of the day took us from melancholy to magnificent as Robert Holden, Ph.D., danced on to the stage, chided Alex for making everyone cry, and told touching stories about love, his kids, being loved, his latest research, releasing fear and blocks to love, and his new book Loveability. His upbeat message was a great way to finish the day.

Sunday morning began with Doreen Virtue and her variety show featuring Doreen, Michael the music man, Precious the dog, Radleigh Valentine, Doreen’s dad, Doreen’s son Grant and daughter-in-law Melissa, James Van Praagh, a few readings and some giveaways. Phew! Doreen packed a lot into an hour and a half.

Appearing for the first time on the I Can Do It! stage was Jim Kwik, founder of Kwik Learning. Jim delighted the crowd with his stories and incredible memory demonstration. He shared a plethora of memory techniques that we could take home and immediately apply to our reading and learning.

After lunch John Pierre had twenty minutes to chat about his book The Pillars of Health before Sonia Choquette had us up and moving. Shifting and uplifting our energy vibrations through dance and lively music, Sonia dispensed great wisdom and handy hints to liberate us from negative frequencies and live a fuller, more joyful life.

Joe Dispenza, D.C., then inspired the crowd with his amazing story of recovery by using the epigenetic model of reality, choosing to heal himself rather than have Harrington rod surgery following a cycling accident. With the belief that the Power that made the body, heals the body, you too can plan your future and bring it to life in the present moment.
World-renowned healer and founder of The Reconnection, Dr. Eric Pearl, reminded us that the body doesn’t need any interference to heal. Pain is a message for us to pay attention to. He invited two ladies on stage, one to receive healing and the other to perform the healing with his assistance. Within a matter of minutes, we witnessed improvements in arm mobility that had been previously limited.

James Van Praagh closed the event with his spunky energy and touching messages from the spirit realm. He and the other speakers were also available throughout the event to meet fans, pose for photos and autograph books.

The I Can Do It! conferences are great places to meet the authors whose works you’ve been reading for years. You will be inspired and uplifted by their messages of love and light. You’ll also meet new friends and like-minded, consciousness thinkers. Check the Hay House website for details.

150 Organic and Natural Gardening Tips ~ Part Five ~ 100 to 125 by OK In Health's Gardening Articles
Let's start we the next 25 Tips, Hints, Tricks and Facts for Natural Gardening. May is all about planting - At a loss for a color to put in your landscape? Try white. It goes with everything and catches the eye nicely - Use newspapers as weed barriers when creating a new bed. They are printed with soy ink and decompose nicely, and are simple to lay out again when decomposed. Don’t use slick colored advertisements or colored pages - Plant a new pot with lettuce, spinach, or other greens every week to keep salads going all season.

“Chucking the Whole Onion” by Allison Scott
We are first and foremost energetic beings then physical beings ie. we have an energy field surrounding our physical bodies (which can be measured by science) which responds to stimuli in our environment before our physical senses do. This energy field registers what is happening in your environment and then feeds the information to your body which then reacts. We interact with our environment through our energy field. Every experience we have ever had has the memory of that experience registered in our DNA and cellular memory. How can we release the negative emotional charge from these memories?
“How many Guardian Angels do most people have?” by Cindy Smith
For the month of September I was guided to write about our Angels. September 8, 2012 is International Angel Day!! Doreen Virtue created IAD several years ago. Her goal being that Angel Practitioners around the world would hold an event on IAD to acknowledge and celebrate our Angels. This year will be my fifth. Students and clients ask me many questions about Guardian Angels. Here are some examples to help explain what Guardian Angels mean to me.
15 Angel Signs and How to Spot Them by OK In Health's Articles
Want to know if you have been visited by an Angel or a passed loved one? If so it might be time to take a closer look at the signs around you. Angels and those we have lost, particularly ones we have loved dearly, will often leave signs to reassure, comfort and guide those they've visited. Whether it's to remind us of their presence, help us through a difficult time or merely to let us know they're there if we need them, these beings will always find a way of alerting us to their presence – often in very unusual and unexpected ways. If you'd like to find out whether you've been visited by an angel or deceased loved one, why they've come to you and interpret any secret messages they might have left you, the following overview of some of the most common signs and their meanings should answer some of your questions...
150 Organic and Natural Gardening Tips ~ Part Four ~ 76 to 100 by OK In Health's Gardening Articles
Let's start we the next 25 Tips, Hints, Tricks and Facts for Natural Gardening. April is all about getting ready for Spring and preparing for the summer growing season. Here are some tips such as: Feed your indoor seedlings with dilute fish fertilizer, unless the odor is a problem. If so, worm tea works well; it is gentle and won’t burn tender seedlings. Or use a fan to blow a gentle breeze over seedlings indoors. The breeze increases air circulation, which decreases disease problems and helps build stronger stems. Another tips is to hide an ugly chain link fence with climbing flowers such as morning glories or sweet peas, or tall flowers such as hollyhocks or sunflowers. Read more tips....

Are You a Lightworker? by Doreen Virtue
I believe that each person has a personal mission in life—something that you agreed to learn during this lifetime. It could be patience, forgiveness, compassion, balance, self-care, integrity, and so forth. Everyone is working on a soul-growth lesson. In addition to their personal missions, some individuals agreed to take on “global missions,” which involve...

Creating Opportunities for Yourself! by Wayne Dyer

EarthStar Wheel: Vortices, Leylines in the Okanagan & Lake louise by Maria Carr
Vortices appear to be points of power or energy on the Earth or “Earth Chakras”, and ley lines are the relationships between those points. An analogy might be that the vortices are accupressure points. and the ley lines between them are meridians on the skin of the body of Mother Earth. I grew up in Ireland and now live in the Okanagan, in BC. The Lake Okanagan is one of the points on the Earth Energy wheel map. The Okanagan lake and lake Louise are both...

How Archangel Michael Defends Us All by Lorna Byrne
A few months back I was a passenger in a car and we stopped at a red light outside the main Criminal Courts in Dublin. I watched a woman in her fifties walk up the steps towards the main entrance of the building. There were three angels walking with her as well as her guardian angel, which I saw as a light three steps behind her. One day some years ago I was walking with the Angel Michael; I had been wondering whether he was there for people who were being dishonest or doing bad things...

Studies show that salmon contain small protein molecules called "bioactive peptides" that may provide support for cartilage, insulin effectiveness, and control of inflammation in the digestive tract.

Is There An Angel Who Fixes Cars? by Doreen Virtue
God and the angels are limitless beings, so they’re able to help each and every person simultaneously. Some people argue that it’s not right for us to ask angels to do our bidding, as they have more important things to do. Yet, when I ask God and the angels about this, I always hear reassurances of their unlimited love and availability. They want us to be peaceful and happy, just as any loving parents would hope for their offspring. So when we ask Archangel...

Ten Steps to a Healthy Father's Day by Maria Carr
Forget the tie or the power tool, the best way to tell your dad you love him this Father's Day is to give him a gift that will help him live a long, healthy and happy life. While making an appointment to get his prostate checked may be a wee bit too clinical (and controversial) for Father's Day, and giving him the grandchildren he's been begging for may not be in the cards, there are loads of great ways to give the gift of health to the dad in your life.

June 2014 2014

The New Moon in Gemini occurs on May 28 at 11:40 am PDT. Though the Sun entered the ‘sign’ of Gemini, not the constellation (no they are not the same thing though both are ‘Zodiacs’ = circle of life), on May 20th at 7:59 pm PDT, the deeper effects begin at the time of the New Moon. Both constitute different cycles which overlap. Of course, there are always many overlapping cycles and deciphering each and their influence is core to the art of interpretation. As for the Gemini theme under this New Moon cycle, the emphasis is upon communication and especially upon mutuality, equality and fairness in relationships.

This is all part of a much larger cycle, the one linked to the recent Cardinal Grand Square. Yes, it continues to linger. What may be less commonly understood is that its roots reach back all the way to the mid-sixties! That is when the current thrust of the women’s liberation revolution germinated. Over the past 50 years or so that revolution to achieve gen...

"When I moved to the beautiful sunny Okanagan 4 years ago I was looking for a change in my wellness journey. I came across the OK In health eMagazine when searching the web for holistic events and practitioners. I found the site to be very informative, positive and easy to navigate. The layout of the site guides and connects me to all my holistic needs. The topics on holistic healing and practitioners is variable and meets the needs of all. It covers a multitude of various kinds of healings, healing practitioners, community and world events, healthy food recipes, families, animals and plants. I love how OK In Health is non-biased, and it offers me free will to explore my own personal wants and needs in the privacy of my own home. I feel Maria of OK In Health has captured a way for the Okanagan community to explore one another while providing the highest of good intentions for both the consumer and the practitioner. Maria has been a great support to me in wellness. Her heartfelt attitude and crystal twinkle in her eyes radiates far beyond her captivating smile."
