  • Structural Relief Therapy: A Better Way to Relieve Pain

    It can get exhausting searching for the most effective manual massage treatment to help alleviate chronic pain and discomfort. People will see many different therapists in hopes of finding some kind of relief following a session. Some believe it can take several sessions over a period of time to gain freedom from such pain. Of course, there is no magic solution due to the complexities of each individual. Every Body is unique and carries within it a map to healing. The therapist must locate the directions with the help of their client to find the easiest route to take....

  • How to Explain the Unexplainable

    “The field is the sole governing agency of the particle”, stated Albert Einstein. He understood that all matter, what we can see and touch, cannot exist without the field to govern it. You may know this field as the Unified Field, the Unbounded, Pure Consciousness. The study of quantum mechanics in physics is attempting to explain some of the unexplainable phenomena in our lives, the things we can’t see and hear. In quantum physics, particles are not solid, they are vast universes of empty space. According to Bill Nye (the science guy) quantum mechanics is changing our world by...

  • Abbington Green Bed & Breakfast Inn and Spa: A Dream Come True

    Abbington Green B&B Inn and Spa literally is a dream come true on so many different levels. As a guest, it’s a dream to stay there and trust me, you’ll never want to leave. For owners Nick Poulos and Steven Donahue, it was a dream to own an Inn. Nick’s parents inspired him to travel and see the world. They also taught him that you have one life and if you have a dream, figure out a way to make it happen. For 15 years, Nick kept a file folder of ideas, articles, and clippings of things he wanted...

  • Discover and Unleash Your Inner Leader

    There is something so profound about the word impact. If we consider impact in terms of a meteor, rocketing from space, the fate of the world lies in the impact. But what about when we consider people? What does “impact” really mean to each of us? Kaplan Mobray is a famous motivational speaker and the author of the book 10Ks of Personal Branding. When I read the book for the first time, I was struck by aspects of his deep dive into personal branding: what do people say when you leave the room? What does your absence say about...

  • You Can’t Get Any Greener than the Lovely Saranac Lake Inn

    Saranac Lake, nestled in the Adirondack Mountains in far upstate New York, started drawing people in the late 19th century. Interestingly enough, this town is known as a “healing” town as many visitors were looking for more than just a travel escape. They had tuberculosis, and in the days before antibiotics, the standard treatment was the “fresh air cure,” or sitting outside in the clean mountain air for extended periods in the hopes of recovering. On my first visit there, I could definitely see why – it is an absolutely stunning part of the country. I was excited to...

  • Wanted: Soul Being Candidates

    Did you know that you are a Soul Being having a Human Being experience.? This means that your Soul has been guiding you since let’s say… forever. Just imagine that you are in-between lifetimes and you are hanging out in the non-physical world. Your Soul floats up to the heavenly bulletin board and see’s a job post that says Human Being positions available. The requirements to incarnate as a Human Being are clearly listed as follows: Job Requirements: You will incarnate into a physical body that is going to need a lot of help at the beginning and at...

  • Intolerance to Self

    Autoimmune hypothyroid (Hashimoto’s thyroiditis), type 1 diabetes, multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s, celiac, lupus, psoriasis. These constitute a sampling of the over 100 identified autoimmune diseases. It is estimated by the NIH that between 3-5% of the population suffers from an autoimmune condition (and between 23.5-50 million Americans). They can be debilitating, confusing, heart-breaking, deadly, and frustrating. What is Autoimmunity? The standard line when defining autoimmunity is that the body’s immune system becomes “confused” and begins to attack and destroy various self-tissues. Basically, an immunological intolerance to self. It is not uncommon for someone to suffer from more than one autoimmune...

  • Understanding Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis

    Your thyroid gland is a tiny butterfly-shaped organ located at the base of your neck near the Adam’s apple. Despite its tiny size, the thyroid has a big job controlling energy production for every cell in the body. The thyroid’s main role is regulating metabolism through two hormones, thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). T4 is an inactive form which gets converted into T3 in the liver, kidneys, gastrointestinal tract, brain and muscles. It is the active form of T3 that stimulates cells to produce energy. The thyroid works in concert with the hypothalamus and pituitary gland to regulate thyroid...
