Are You Still A Kid At Heart?

Kid at Heart
When you learn to still the mind, you begin to take notice of your thoughts and feelings as they occur. You become somewhat of an "observer" to your own life. As the observer, you are more cognizant of your own actions. You begin to view how you interact with the world and respond to the causes and effects you are constantly subjected to. Lately, one of my observations has been about the fun-lovin...

What Is Disease? Its Origins And The “Why Me?” Syndrome

God created man
What is disease and illness? To discover its origins, we must first know a little about our own origins, as human beings. The Bible states that "God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them." Genesis 1-27. What does that really mean? It certainly does not mean we look like Him physically, because the Almighty can come in any form. It mean...

What Is Your Disease Called? To Know Or Not To Know.

What disease are you
Disease. Does a disease require a name before it becomes real. If I come down with an unknown ailment, does it mean that I can't treat the disease until it has a name? Just because I can’t name it, does that mean that there is no way of knowing what to take for it? Of course not… if you treat holistically that is. When you treat holistically, you repair the systems within the body that innately kn...

Someone Else’s Heart

Heart in hand
In early 2000, while I was waiting, or should I say living, at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto for a heart and kidney to become available for transplantation, I was asked many times whether I had any concerns about having someone else's heart inside my body. At first it didn't seem like it was something that would bother me but the longer I waited, and as the time grew closer, I began to wonder mo...

The Ultimate New Year’s Resolution: A Pact For Life

Today is January 1, 2015 and I find myself lying in a bathtub of water containing two boxes of Arm and Hammer baking soda and 1 cup of ultrapure magnesium flakes. I'm sitting here feeling very lethargic today - a feeling I had felt many times before in the past. I did well on New Year's Eve to consume six bottles of Becks, and for those of you who are unfamiliar with the brand, it's a nonalcoholic...
