Today is the 50th Anniversary of ‘Earth Day.’ Be sure to spend some time in nature today, in gratitude, as you celebrate this wondrous planet where we all live. We are the earth’s caregivers and protectors, and that was never more evident and important than now. As Astronaut Carl Sagan’s photo demonstrated and spoke of, the earth is but a tiny speck of dust in the Universe. “Everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives,” Sagan later wrote. “On a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.”Candy Hansen, a planetary scientist at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory who worked on the Voyager imaging team noted, “It also made me think about how vulnerable our tiny planet is.”
Spring is springing and so are allergies!
Nobody wants to hear this, but diet definitely does make a difference when you’re suffering from allergies.
Most people suffer from Kapha type (phlegm) of allergy symptoms – sinus congestion, sneezing, lung congestion, watery eyes, fatigue, lethargy, mental fogginess. So it’s important during allergy season, and even for several weeks prior, to start a Kapha reducing diet. This means cutting out or drastically reducing dairy products, wheat, fried foods, and cold or iced drinks. During this time you want to add warming spices like ginger, drying grains like rye and barley, and lots of fresh vegetables including leafy greens.
New Year’s Day began with a ‘walk of good intentions.’ Blessed with sunshine and mild temperatures on Cape Ann, friends and strangers came together for a walk in Dogtown. We hiked to Whale’s jaw. A piece of the Whale’s jaw boulder broke off in 1989, but Whales Jaw still stands as it has for over ten thousand years. Standing as a reminder of strength, resiliency and endurance, and symbolic of Gloucester’s fishermen and women. There, we celebrated the new year with a guided meditation and sharing good intentions of gratitude, tolerance and peace.
With Gratitude. Thank you to Jimmy and Laurel for extending their annual New Year’s walk to this community event, to Wendy for her soulful guided meditation, for the all those who came out for the walk and their positive energy, and to Laura, for the beautiful space to gather! One sentiment shared by the the group was the hope that our beloved Dogtown endure throughout the ages, for many new generations to come. We came upon many others celebrating the new year in Dogtown Commons, walking, jogging and biking, enjoying the peace and beauty of nature.
Appreciating Babson and his reminders of virtue. Babson donated more than 1,100 acres to the city of Gloucester in the 1930s “as a park and watershed.” Carved Babson boulders found throughout Dogtown Common remind us of some of the virtues that are the foundation of good moral being, the fabric of a healthy society. Among my favorites are Industry, Courage, Help Mother, and Kindness.
Happy New Year and number 4!
2020 is a very special year of perfect vision and accomplishment *(20/20 vision).
2020 is reduced to a single number = 4. The number 4 is our foundation that represents order, responsibility, stability, family, home, manifestation, conservation, peace, physical reality, and practical solutions. It is also the number of work and of getting things done. You are being asked in 2020 to be fully invested in creating a foundation for long-lasting success, security, and grounding by building something of value that stands the test of time.
The number 4 brings a sense of calm. Focus on what matters, and ultimately supports you to build new foundations and dreams. So, in 2020, you will have additional strength, discipline, and fortitude to work miraculous results for yourself! 2020 will create remarkable opportunities for you to take your foot off the brake and move forward with diligence and courage.
So in summary the essence of 2020:
2020 is the year of exceptional change in the structures, values, and natures of our modern world and YOU, everyone of us play an important role in bridging this shift into a Universal Humanity. There is work to be done. 2020 is our get real moment of walking the talk. Mindfully choosing to be an active emissary of love.

Ancient is the New New…
With chronic disease at epidemic proportions around the world, the need for novel preventive and health-restoring solutions is urgent.
Modern research reveals that dramatic reductions in cardiovascular and other chronic disease is possible through lifestyle intervention, however the knowledge base is fragmented, often inconsistent and insufficient to motivate many patients.
Ayurvedic knowledge offers a powerful added dimension of diagnosis, prevention and care through personalization, chronotherapeutics and medical foods and herbs based on the tridosha system that is appealing to the patient, “makes sense,” and is supported by a growing body of research.
Let us introduce you to yourself. Call us to set up a private consultation.

The Fall Equinox marks the beginning of Autumn and through the lens of #Ayurveda It marks the beginning of Vata Season. Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC suggests a few tips for staying balanced through the transition.
Autumn being cool, dry and windy season means that the Vata elements of air, light, dry, rough, subtle and mobile qualities are present.
Your skin may start to feel dry, tight and a bit rough. A Vata imbalance can make you feel fidgety, lack of focus, ungrounded and/or spaced out.
You may experience constipation, bloating, anxiety, joint pain and/or insomnia.

All work no play makes an immune-deficient body.
In Ayurveda, Ojas is our protection, our immunity from disease.
Try a few of these tips from Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC to build up your Ojas…or contact us for a private consultation…
Building your Physical Ojas:
• Eat Seasonally. If we eat what is offered by nature seasonally and without much processing, our ojas will tend to be strong. We will then naturally crave that which is attuned to our constitution (Body type/Dosha).
• Move your breath through your body for 20 minutes upon arising.
• Cleanse or Detox in the Fall and Spring. Ama (undigested foods and experiences that store in our bodies) When Ama is less, ojas is more.
• Eat 2-3 meals a day. Allowing proper time for complete digestion enables ojas to be formed. Eating too frequently creates ama.
• Sip hot water throughout the day. Sipping hot water will clear your channels of ama and refresh the space.
Building Ojas in the Mind Body:
• Meditate Daily. Allowing time and space for the digestion of mental impressions clears the confusion and mental ama (toxins).
• Self-massage with warm oil (sesame) before showering will help to nurture your nerves, which enables ojas to spread throughout you.
• Create space for down time. The feeling of shared joy, laughter and feeling alive, boosts ojas. Make time each day for a dose.
