    Can Environmental Factors be Affecting Your Ability to Conceive?

    Many couples don’t have to try very hard to conceive, while others struggle and are faced with the trials and tribulations of infertility. For either case, taking control of environmental factors that interfere with conception or proper fetal development not only promotes normal hormone balance but can also be a key factor in optimizing natural and interventional fertility success. In addition, there is the added benefit of reducing the risk of reproductive cancers in both men and women. The Role of Xenoestrogens Xenoestrogens are environmental chemicals considered to be endocrine disrupting compounds (EDC) also referred to as “environmental hormones.”...

    The Resort at Paws Up Truly is the Last Best Place

    After a six and a half hour drive from Jackson, through Idaho and into western Montana, we were happy to arrive at The Resort at Paws Up in Greenough. Passing through the magnificent gates with the words, “Paws Up” etched on one side and “The Last Best Place” on the other, I couldn’t wait to experience what I had watched on videos for months before we got here. Sometimes there are no words for a place like Paws Up, but if I had put it into words it would be…inspiring, stunning, grand… special. There are few places that will...

    Managing Infertility is like Learning to Surf

    Suggestions such as “relax,” “take a vacation,” or “just give it time and it will happen,” are commonly heard by patients struggling with infertility. Underlying these comments is the idea that somehow the person suffering from infertility has complete control over it. Unfortunately, many people can’t control it, not matter how they try, and these comments often increase the patient’s sense of frustration and potentially relentless self blame. We cannot completely control infertility any more than we can control the tides of the ocean. However, we can control how we handle it… or how we surf. Infertility treatment can...

    A 10-Step Plan for Dating with Purpose

    What if 2015 is your year to find love? It absolutely can be if you decide to take action and start dating with purpose. What is Dating with Purpose? Many people date unconsciously, content to enter a relationship with whoever comes along or shows interest. That’s certainly one approach, but it’s not likely to produce the lasting, loving relationship you dream of. When you are dating with purpose, you approach finding love from a higher consciousness. You define the qualities of your ideal partner and create an action plan to find that person. Dating to find love requires strategy,...

    Something is missing at our place of work, something is very wrong….and we know it.

Now we’ll take a look at how soul loss is related to how you earn money and how to find your way back to soulful work. What does Soul Loss Have to do with How you Earn Money? When a shaman says you have lost a piece of your soul it is not a metaphor. A shaman...

    The Genetics and Biochemistry of Depression: A Nutrigenomics Approach Part One

    For some, everything about the day is difficult. From getting up in the morning to interacting with friends, family, and colleagues to doing everyday work and activities can be painful. Energy levels may be low, motivation even lower, and a general sense of pain may seem to accompany everything in life. This type of depression is ruled by decreased levels of the neurotransmitter serotonin. For others, depression may not feel this way at all. On a day-to-day basis you may be excited to visit with friends and family, eat at that wonderful new restaurant, or go on vacation. And...

    SOUL RETREIVAL AT WORK – Finding Meaning and Purpose at Work

    Something is missing at our place of work, something is very wrong….and we know it. So many of us are sleepwalking to work each day feeling unmotivated, unfulfilled, unproductive, and un-empowered; work has lost any sense of meaning and enjoyment. Our passion is gone. We have become cynical and disengaged. A job has been reduced to a means of paying bills, something to get through, waiting until Friday…until retirement. At work, we have let ourselves be reduced to a utility, to be used for the highest level of productivity at the lowest cost, to pump the stock in order...
