Yoga and the Placebo Effect

Mind Over Matter

Recent studies are calling into question what we really know about a wide range of health conditions. Placebo is often found to be as effective as conventional treatments. The tendency to gloss over these findings with merely a warning against "fake medicine" overlooks more important implications.

Healing Sounds of the Universe

by Kathleen Daley | Pachamama Alliance

Myths of ancient indigenous cultures claim that the universe began with one root sound, which permeates the entire universe. According to ancient Vedic (Hindu) philosophy, the Sanskrit word, Om, is the primordial sound from which the whole universe emanated. Om represents the Divine and the Absolute.

Healing is Not in The Pill

Healing is Not in the Pill or One Perfect Supplement

Healing cannot be ordered, bought, ingested, downloaded, or transplanted.
Healing is more like a magic, a transformation, and alchemy. More like love.
Healing is not in the pill, the perfect supplement, or in one balanced meal,
Healing is closer to grace.

Sometimes We Get Stuck in Regret

I should have done things differently.

Now it’s too late.

I’ve missed my chance.

I screwed it up.

I should have known.

 I say: baloney.

You did the very best you could do under the circumstances and with the information you had at the time.

Honestly, I’m not sweet-talking you with some feel-good mumbo jumbo here — I’m serious.
