(NaturalNews) Kombucha tea is becoming all the rage in popular culture today, with entire refrigerator cases at health food stores now exclusively stocking the stuff, and celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, Reese Witherspoon, and Orlando Bloom regularly drinking it for increased longevity and improved health. But with its growing popularity has come a whole lot of scaremongering by the disease industry over its supposed dangers, which begs the question -- is kombucha tea a potentially-dangerous fad, or is it truly the health-promoting wonder elixir that many people claim it is?
First of all, kombucha tea has been around for thousands of years, and has long been used by traditional cultures to improve digestion, boost immunity, eliminate kidney stones, reduce high blood pressure, and create sustained and lasting energy.
Publisher’s Description: Dr. Glen Hepker explores the tools for promotion of True Health. Based on the age-old Bright Beautiful School of Thought, Hepker explains how the quality of our lives will be greatly enhanced once we learn to raise ourselves up by taking True Responsibility for our own health and wellbeing.
Hepker guides readers through the tenets of the Bright School theory and assists the reader in realizing this level of True Health. Most especially, this health and wellness philosophy is distinguished by its remarkable, thought-provoking, and ingenious notion of coalescing ethics and morality and deeply-rooted insight/objectivity skills with conceptions of health and wellness, i.e., True Health and/or True Health through True Responsibility.
It sets forth that one cannot realize True Health without the necessary and truly skilled attributes of deep insight, morality, clear objectivity - learning the True Skill of being able to look within and without (into one's internal and external environments), without fear, without preset patterns of thinking.

Craniosacral Therapy is a modality with roots in Osteopathy, a uniquely American form of Alternative Medicine.

This fluid and membrane system is your body’s craniosacral system.
I know I've been on a political rant lately. The conservative war on women just got my hackles up. But I can take only so much intensity before I just say, F&*$k it and turn my attention to something that won't raise my blood pressure so much. Oh, I'm still doing what I can to turn the tide of destruction of all that we have fought so hard for as women, but I'm taking an anger break and will continue to fight with my vote, plus spread the word via social media. In the meantime, I am focusing on something else dear to my heart, REAL FOOD COOKING.
I have put aside my great American Novel for a bit and am concentrating on something I have wanted to write for a long time—cook books, starting with my favorite goodie of all all time, home-made Bread. Home made bread is so sublime that I hate it when I'm too busy to bake and have to buy my bread. Right now, my house smells amazing because I am testing bread recipes for the book. The only problem is it goes so fast I only get a slice or two before I am staring at a deflated, empty bread bag populated with lonely crumbs.

A story of healing. Have you ever dealt with aging parents? This particularly situation is close to my heart. I received a call on August 31st at the assisted living facility where my mom had been residing. She had fallen twice in her room in the past two weeks, in the middle of the night. The graveyard-nursing shift had been making their usual rounds and had found her on the floor.
It is a shocking sight to see your loved one, bruised up with cuts. I asked the caregivers on duty how could we as children of our parents prevent this from happening again. My mom just did not seem her usual cheerful joyful self. She could not remember simple questions that I addressed to her such as what day is it? Or what year it was. She seemed confused. Her eyes did not have the usual spark or twinkle in it. There was a glaze that had not been there before. She started to nod off in her chair and fall asleep.
I asked Archangel Raphael and myself what on earth was happening to my mom. She had lost her will to live. She seemed to be deteriorating. She seemed so child like. The assisted living facility caregivers and I decided to take action and set up an appointment with her family doctor. Her doctor told me that it was old age as well as the body’s organs starting to shut down. I asked myself how was I supposed to again help my mom. I asked Source and Archangel Raphael for help regarding my fears, worries and concerns for my mom’s well being. I examined in my mind over and over again, my relationship as a daughter to my mom, as well as my duty to her for the best health care possible.
The hardest part for me was when the office manager informed me that she was being admitted to the hospital. She was not eating and just wanted to sleep. In the hospital she kept on saying over “no more mama, no more. “I just want to lie down and go to sleep”.
My brother, my daughter and I visited her a couple nights ago. It just so happened that we arrived all with in a few minutes. I felt that Archangel Raphael and Source was trying to convey a message to us. My mom kept on pointing up to the heavens. She kept on telling us to take care of ourselves. We left wondering if that were the last time we would ever see her.
Good water is essential to body cleansing. Your body goes down fast without water.Making up almost three-fourths of the body, every cell is regulated, monitored and dependent on an efficient flow of water. Not one of the processes in our bodies could take place without water. What does our body do with all that water?
Water is the adhesive that bonds your cell architecture. When you get enough water fluid retention decreases, and gland and hormone functions improve.
--Water regulates your body temperature, maintains your equilibrium and helps the liver break down and release more fat.
