The Gift of Laugther

We are born with the gift of laughter to lift our spirit.

Everybody knows that a heartfelt laugh makes one feel good.

In ancient Japan, people spoke to the organs and made them laugh, because they were convinced that “laughing organs” can’t stay sick. [1]

A growing body of research is showing that laughter has therapeutic value and induces physical changes in the body that support health and well-being [2]. Laughter

  • Boosts the immune system and circulatory system
  • Enhances oxygen intake
  • Stimulates the heart and lungs
  • Relaxes muscles throughout the body
  • Triggers the release of endorphins (the body’s natural painkillers)
  • Eases digestion/soothes stomach aches
  • Relieves pain
  • Balances blood pressure
  • Improves mental functions (i.e., alertness, memory, creativity)
  • Improves sleep

Many hospitals now offer laughter therapy programs as a complementary treatment to illness.

It doesn’t cost you anything to laugh. Enjoy it daily – get tickled, watch a funny movie, play with kids, or just smile back at the world because you are grateful for that you are alive.

If you find yourself not being able to laugh and feel joy, you may be experiencing signs of depression. Please get help. The Andreas Method is a gentle and effective method to release underlying blockages and positively effect stress and anxiety.

Laugh from Your Heart ;-)

Blessings,
Jeannette von Johnsbach

Newsletter November 2014 | Happy Thanksgiving!

Wellness News

Happy Thanksgiving!
Image

Hi everyone!

Millions in America come together on that holiday to celebrate family, friends and the good things in live.

Celebrations of Gratitude are very powerful. Science is backing up the health benefits of an attitude of gratitude:

It improves sleep, increases self-esteem, increases your energy levels, increases emotional intelligence, lessens depression and anxiety, increases the feeling of being socially connected, and makes you 25% happier. [1]

A simple way to express gratitude is to think of 5 things that you are grateful for every day. You may even choose to keep a gratitude journal. Writing a note of appreciation to a loved one, friend, or co-worker is not only boosting your health but also lifts others as well.

What about the things that seem difficult to be grateful for? Being thankful ‘that it is so and not worse’, shifts your energy, and let’s you harness the power of gratitude even in challenging times.

Use the power of gratitude daily ;-)

Happy Thanksgiving,

Jeannette von Johnsbach

Staying Healthy in a Post-Antibiotic Era: Keeping A Healthy Gut Flore

Wellness News

October 2014

Staying Healthy in a Post-Antibiotic Era
Image

Hi Carlos

Empowering yourself with the knowledge of natural approaches to health is becoming more important than ever.

Antibiotics kill bacteria, not only the bad ones, but also the good ones that we need for proper functioning of our digestive tract. Our intestines contain more immune cells than the entire rest of our body.[1]

That’s why it is critical to keep the gut flora healthy by eating unprocessed foods, and to rebuild the gut flora after exposure to antibiotics to prevent health issues. Immune dysfunction begins with gut dysfunction. Scientists at Oregon State University have linked an impaired gut flora with significant health issues such as autoimmune disease, clinical depression, allergies and asthma. [2]

Up to 70 percent of all antibiotics produced in the United States are used for ‘non-therapeutic” purposes. Low dose antibiotics are often used in large scale meat production to speed up animal growth and ward off disease. Non-organic fruits and vegetables are also often contaminated with antibiotics. Eating these foods will expose our body to these antibiotics. Go Organic! Your health is worth it! [3]

And with the flu season around the corner, the Center for Disease Control reminds us that antibiotics do nothing for viral infections, such as colds, flu, most sore throats, bronchitis, and many sinus and ear infections. Using them for viral infections will NOT cure the infection, will not keep other people from getting sick, and will not help you or your child to feel better. It will contribute to antibiotic resistance. [4]

Once a blessing to safe life, overuse and misuse of antibiotics over the years has been promoting the development of super bugs. Many strains of bacteria are becoming resistant to even the strongest antibiotics available.

The World Health Organization warns that we are headed into the so-called “post-antibiotic era”, where common infections turn deadly because of drug-resistant bacteria:

The Andreas Method Newsletter )ctober 2014

Empower yourself! Learn how to use Homeopathy effectively for cold and flu symptoms, including ear ache, sore throat, coughs, and sinusitis.

Two course dates are available for your convenience.

Homeopathy was first proposed by German physician Samuel Hahnemann in 1796, and gained popularity during the 1800s based on its success in dealing with the various epidemic diseases that raged throughout America and Europe.

Homeopathic remedies are non-toxic, and safe for all ages, do not create dependency, and do not create super bugs – because they are not fighting a specific microbe, but provide an informational stimulus to the bodies innate healing capabilities.

Learn how to use natural remedies ;-)

Blessings,

Home Sweet Home

Hi Carlos

I posted this article in 2013, but it is such an important topic – esp. for all who care for children, that I decided to re-post it.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that air inside the typical home is 2-5 times more polluted than the air immediately outside, which is largely due to cleaners and other toxic household products.

For example, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1,4-dioxane is considered by the State of California to cause cancer and has been found to be potentially toxic to your brain and central nervous system, kidneys, liver and respiratory system. [2]

Two-thirds of laundry detergents tested by the Organic Consumer Association contain 1, 4 dioxane. [3] The highest levels were found in Tide (55 ppm), Ivory Snow (31 ppm) and Tide Free (29 ppm).

Following "natural" brands tested completely free: Clorox Green Works, ECOS laundry detergent (Earth Friendly Products), Life Tree laundry liquid, Method Squeaky Green laundry detergent and Seventh Generation Free & Clear laundry detergent. [4]

You can also make your own natural cleaners using baking soda, vinegar and lemons!

Vinegar diluted with water can clean almost anything in your home: windows, floors… it even can be used as a fabric softener. Baking Soda is great to scrub your bath and kitchen. Just sprinkle it on the surfaces and scrub. You may add a little lemon or organic essential oil such as lavender or lemon.

For a great non-toxic drain cleaner, sprinkle one cup of baking soda down the drain, add one cup of apple cider vinegar and let it bubble for 15 minutes, then rinse with hot water.

Clean Your Home Naturally ;-)

Blessings,
Jeannette von Johnsbach
