I usually write about my whacky life and this is probably a detour from that, but not completely. Although I have lived the life unusual, it has not been without come-uppance karma. My childhood of the five food groups—sugary, salty, crunchy, greasy, and gooey, plus my early adult life of partying, drinking, smoking, and, well other stuff, left its toll. One of them was something that seems to be catching up to a lot of us—Gluten allergy and intolerance.
According to people who track this sort of thing, Gluten intolerance is rampant. Just take a look at Amazon's offering for cookbooks and you'll see a lot of gluten free titles. Search "Gluten free" on Amazon and you come up with thousands of titles.
I've read that many people don't even know what's wrong with them, they just feel aweful, have rashes, migraines, digestive problems, joint pain, weakness, depression, and a host of other symptoms. The lucky ones figure out that they have a problem with gluten or wheat—no drugs or surgery required.
The concept of mediumship is nothing new. It has been around for thousands of years within various cultures and religions. Yet, while many throughout the world today continue to embrace the practice of spirit communication it is still largely frowned upon in western society.
Since the early 1800’s to mid 1900‘s, there have been several documented cases of mediums making contact with the spirit world. However, for the purpose of this article as well as time constraint, I will mention just a few of the more well-known mediums of that time. Among them were Edgar Cayce, Maggie and Katie Fox, Allen Kardec and Emma Hardinge Britten. Fast forward to today, and you will find a whole new breed of mediums making a name for themselves such as James Van Praagh, John Edward, John Holland and Lisa Williams, each creating an atmosphere of peace and comfort for some, deep skepticism and controversy from others. And at the root of the controversy always seems to be the same age-old question….is it real?
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.
(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.

"We can deny everything, except that we have the possibility of being better."
~ The Dalai Lama
We lament over our faults and shortcomings. We stress over all those things that don't turn out the way we would like. Yet, so long as we can remain open to the possibility that we can become better, we have the opportunity to grow and learn from our shortcomings and sufferings, becoming wiser, more joyful human beings as a result.
What you think of as your weaknesses are, most likely, blessings in disguise. Embrace your weaknesses. Be grateful for them. Turn them into your greatest strengths. Allow them to teach you - to transform yourself into a better being.
