During this time on the second day, fruits not yet eaten in the new season are served in tandem with a special blessing.  The first meal is consist of round challah, apples dipped in honey, chicken matzo ball soup, gefilte fish with horseradish, tsimmes (sweet orange colored mix of vegetables and fruit starting with carrots and adding either sweet potatoes, prunes, pineapple and sugar)  honey cake; apple cake; strudel; nuts.  The second meal: dates, figs, pomegranates, pumpkin, leeks and beets.

There was Yom Kippur (Sept 13th (sunset) thru Sept 14th(nightfall) ) This holiday is...

To all of my fellow yogis this is the month for you!  September is National Yoga Month! Yoga is more than a way to recharge the mind, stretch muscles and boost flexibly, the practice can reconnect an individual to their inner being and the community around them.

 But what is yoga?

Yoga can be summarized as three possibilities or approaches:

1. Yoga as Power–

Yoga can be explained as a means to attain a degree of power or control over the body and mind.  Yoga links the body and the mind through intense physical and mental effort. For instance, through rigorous physical practices a state of concentration is developed and maintained which is used to hold power over the body and the breath.    Within this approach, such control is often seen as prerequisite to the body and mind becoming free of disturbances and distractions.

2.  Yoga as Meditation – 

In this approach, yoga is a tool for a movement towards a deeper relationship with your sense  of soul, by searching both into and b...

    Psychoneuroimmunology is a study that investigates the interactions between behavior and the immune system, mediated by the endocrine and nervous systems (Ziemssen & Kern 2007).  Psychoneuroimmunology main interests are the interactions between the nervous and immune systems and the relationships between mental processes and health. Psychoneuroimmunology studies the connections or links between our "state" of mind and our "state" of health (Dohms 2016).   Psychoneuroimmunology research demonstrates that emotions influence immunological functioning and that too much stress has a negative impact on the functioning of the body’s immune system. Recent research suggests that the immune system can be enhanced or suppressed by external stimuli and that the brain reacts to external stimuli at an
unconscious level (Malkin, 2003). 


    Essential oils have been shown to have significant effects on mood states and these effects are believed to arise from stimulation of the...

Back to school again in the South, Midwest and West Coast.  My, how time goes by so quickly.  This is the season where a lot of our darling children will come home for a long day of school screaming  “ Mom!” “What’s for dinner?”  or “Mom, I am hungry!”  “What do we have to eat!”   If you do not have dinner ready now you can give them a healthy snack that will tie them over until dinner time.  Pick snacks that taste good, help them to look and feel great.

Make sure that you do not give too much of a snack that your child will not have enough to eat for dinner.  But, if your child is doing something active like playing a sport, taking a dance class, biking or running around with your friends, it’s OK to fuel up with a bigger snack.

Your child can eat lunch at noon and dinner’s at 6:00, a snack right after school–say at about 3:00–is just right. They will get some fuel to do homework or to get outside and play.

 You can pack a great snack in your kid’s back...
