It's hard to believe that summer is almost over and autumn is just around the corner. For many people, the change of the seasons can bring a desire to change their health. This may mean beginning an exercise program, choosing healthier foods, cleansing through various detoxification avenues, or all of the above. At Nature's Best Wellness Center, we are here to assist you in your quest for health. Take some time to look over our website, www.naturesbestnews.com, for more information about the various services that we provide, including our newest service, Avatar "EAV" Assessments discussed below!
NEW! Avatar (EAV/EDS) Assessment ~ an Energetic Testing Procedure.
So what is Energetic and what kind of "Energy" is this?
Everyone is familiar with the fact that we have many different organs and glands in the body. We are also familiar with the highly organized and complex Nervous System and the Circulatory System. Initially, we consider that all these organs, glands, and systems are physical and chemical in nature. We can touch, see and measure these aspects. We know that science has proven these attributes, and we take science's accounts of such nature to be true. But there is also an unseen component of all these organs, glands, and systems called the Energetic System. This Energetic System is not physical or chemical in its nature. Instead, it is pure energy.
The Energetic System is virtually invisible. Many people believe that the Energetic System does not exist. Often, it is the nature of our strict analytical minds to deny the existence of that which cannot be seen. Medical science believes that the energetic System does not exist because the nature of science is to deny the existence of that which cannot be measured and it is difficult for scientific experts to validate this type of energy, because it is not measurable, at least not by current day technologies.
So what is the actual assessment?
The bio-energetic evaluation is based on the energetic function of the meridian system. The meridians are energetic pathways which pass through tissues and organs. Research has proven that bio-electrical energy flows through each meridian to associated organs and systems adjusting and harmonizing their activity. During a bio-energetic assessment we can access these energy channels painlessly and non-invasively by measuring with a probe, acupuncture points on the hands and feet. The measurements are displayed on a computer screen as the practitioner is testing, indicating the energetic level of the corresponding organs and systems. Once the evaluation is complete, we can then access an extensive database to consider thousands of items to help restore balance to your individual system.

Kokomo Farmer's Market is now open on Saturday mornings from 8-12 in downtown Kokomo. Be sure to support your local farmers!
|2 cups walnuts
2 stalks celery
1 large red bell pepper
|1 large scallion (green onion)
1 tsp sea salt
Combine all ingredients in a food processor and pulse chop until smooth (or to desired consistency). This is great on crackers, blue corn chips, with celery sticks, or as a sandwich spread on bread or on a lettuce wrap!
1/4 sweet or red onion
4 cloves garlic
20 sun-dried tomatoes
1/2 cup raisins
2 Tbsp chili powder
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp oregano
1/3 cup olive oil
handful fresh cilantro
|1 jalapeno, optional
1 tsp sea salt
2 stalks celery, finely diced
2 zucchini, finely diced
2 cups frozen corn, thawed
1/2 red bell pepper, finely diced
1 cup walnuts
1 carrot, finely chopped (optional)
1 tomato, chopped (optional)
Presoak walnuts for at least 4 hours. Presoak sun-dried tomatoes for at least 1 hour.
Blend first 11 ingredients (down to the salt) in a blender until smooth. Put chopped & grated vegetables & nuts into a bowl then mix in sauce. Allow to set at least 6 hours or overnight to allow for the spices to fully contribute their flavor. Place in a dehydrator set at 100 degrees for several hours in advance of serving, to warm to a pleasing temperature, but it is yummy at room temperature too!
For a chunkier chili, process first ingredients in food processor instead of blender.
Health Tid-bit: Change Your Attitude ~ Change Your Health!
Attitude: We've all experienced dealing with someone who has an "attitude". We have attitudes towards certain things or people. We change our attitude on a whim. And I'm sure we have all been in need of an "attitude adjustment" at times. But what does our attitude have to do with health?
The answer: Everything!
Your attitude can determine whether your body heals or degenerates. It can improve your immune system. It affects the relationships that you have with family & friends! It will make a difference in how your body deals (or doesn't deal) with stress & stressful situations.
When you make a conscious decision to have an attitude of gratitude permeate every aspect of your life, you will begin to notice changes all around you. One of the major effects is that instead of complaining about how unfair your life situation appears, that you begin to observe the many blessings you enjoy. No one is discounting the fact that many people suffer with pain & challenges that seem over-whelming on their own. But the truth is, just as the old saying goes, "you can always find someone in worse shape than you". And it is true. When you begin to look at these challenges as opportunities to grow, learn, & develop into the kind of person God intends for you to be, then it makes each challenge more bearable. It means that in spite of the difficulties you may face in your relationships, those people are there for you to learn to be more loving. It means that even though your pain is unbearable at times, it will help you be more compassionate to others dealing with similar circumstances. It means that although you may be struggling financially in ways you never dreamed possible, that you look for others in need and find a way to give out of your poverty instead of out of your abundance. That is where true blessings are experienced. If you are holding a grudge against someone, your body will harbor that as a toxin within, creating and contributing to your disease. Until you rid yourself of that animosity and truly forgive, you will be unable to heal. If you are continually look for ways to criticize the spouse or the children or the boss or the neighbor, how can you express love to them? Instead, look for ways to uplift & encourage the people in your life, to demonstrate appreciation for them, for your job, for your health, for your home, for whatever you may be experiencing. This will help your body as it works towards healing.
The truth is you choose your attitude. You may have lived a long time with a grudge-holding, negative, critical attitude, but that doesn't mean it has to remain that way. You can choose to change your outlook. You can choose to look for blessings instead of curses. You can choose to improve your health by improving your attitude. It may take a while & some work, but the choice is yours as always.
Remember: Life is a Gift. Health is a Choice. Choose Wisely. And I would add, Choose Happy!
