Oil Pulling – Does It Work?

oil

Have you ever heard of oil pulling? Neither had I until a client brought it up during a session last week. Oil pulling is an ancient aryuvetic treatment that “pulls” out bacteria in the mouth and surrounding areas by swishing with oil 2-3 times a day. What this does is encourage the increase in enzymes in the mouth that in turn draw harmful bacteria away from the sinuses, mouth and other areas. It is said that oil pulling can decrease congestion in the sinuses and the lungs, encourage lymphatic drainage, whiten the teeth, and decrease the bacteria in the mouth. I thought that I might give this a try to see if it really makes a difference. From what I

Perfectly Alright With Being Imperfect

“The essence of being human is that one does not seek perfection” ~ George Orwell Why are we so hard on ourselves for being imperfect? As a society we have set such high standards for ourselves and have had such high standards set for us, that half the time we can’t see how unattainable they are. This happens in all aspects of life: You see it in the business man that works long after his children have gone to bed just to finish the projects given to him. You see it in the teenager that compares herself to super models, vowing that she will get plastic surgery as soon as she is 18. You see it in the student that

It’s Not Your Path

natures-painting-9_l

This article is inspired by client of mine. Most of us have heard the words “my path” or “my journey”, this is describing the experiences we all go through in life but more specifically the lessons we have learned along the way. For some of us, this path is as smooth as asphalt with some minor potholes, but for others it may seem as rough going as a hiking trail with fallen trees blocking its path. For each and every one of us this path looks completely different depending on the lessons we need to learn. Sometimes when the going gets tough it is so easy to look outside of ourselves for a distraction. Other peoples problems, hardships, or lessons

Don’t Let Shame Predict What You Think You Deserve

shame1

Most of us can look back on our lives and can find one or two situations that have caused us shame. Cheating in a relationship, backstabbing a friend, and lying are just a few I can think of off the top of my head. Depending on the severity of the circumstance, this shame can stay with us our entire lives and can predict our successes and our failures. Whether we know it or not, this shame or guilt is that little voice in the back of our minds telling us we are not worth it, not good enough. It is from this negative way of thinking that we sub-consciously start dictating what we believe we deserve, depending on the level
