Crystal Grid Journey ~

We are thrilled to welcome back multi master healer, Sue Ustas of ZuZu’s Healing Arts, Inc!

Come settle in our sacred space and allow yourself to be immersed in the healing energies of a beautiful crystal grid, then guided on a meditative crystalline journey for healing and spiritual evolution. The experience is a deeply relaxing one, and can help shift your personal vibration to a higher resonant frequency, resulting in deeper sleep, better overall health, and spiritual awakening/evolution.

Sue Ustas first began having Psychic experiences as a teenager, which led her to pursue her natural abilities through countless books, classes and teachings. She studied Mediumship and Healing at the Greater Boston Church of Spiritualism, but her first love was always Crystals. She had collected rocks, stones and crystals as a child at every beach, river and wooded area she found herself near, always appreciating the magic in nature. In 2002, she began creating beaded jewelry with natural gemstones and thus began the official start of ZuZu’s Healing Arts, Inc. Currently she owns and operates ZuZu’s, is a Psychic, Medium, Channel, Writer, Level 3 Reiki practitioner, Level 3 Melchizedek practitioner and self-proclaimed “Crystal Goddess”.

Grapefruit ~

Grapefruit ~

In Ayurveda, the secret of the grapefruit lies in its powerful flavors, sour and bitter. These cleansing tastes stimulate the flow of bile, diluting and flushing it out of the gallbladder and into the small intestine. Stagnant bile tends to collect and thicken in the gall bladder, where the liver stores the bile after producing it, forming problematic sludge and stones. The sludge inhibits the drainage of bile, congesting the liver. Sour and bitter flavors encourage the bile to move and flush toxins out of the liver to the relief of your newly cleansed liver cells.

*Grapefruits are contraindicated for high blood pressure or when using anti-depressants. If you take thyroid medication, please check with your doctor before adding grapefruit to your diet.

Grapefruit with Ginger, Honey and Cardamom

Ingredients
2 pinch Cardamon
2 pinch Ginger (dried)
1 c Grapefruit
1 tsp Honey

Preperation
1. Peel grapefruit
2. Slice in flat circles

October, Ayurveda Awareness Month

October, Ayurveda Awareness Month

Ayurveda is a natural system of health and wellbeing and the sister-science to yoga. It originated in India thousands of years ago.

As a Complementary and Alternative Medicine Ayurveda can support your health needs in various ways. Ayurveda uses diet, herbal remedies, lifestyle tools and body therapies to establish health in body and mind.

Like Chinese medicine, Ayurveda is based on the five elements of nature. They are earth, air, fire, water and ether. According to Ayurveda, these elements are present in our environment around us as well as within us.

Good health is a state of balance of these five elements. Maintaining balance is the key and that involves many things. Your diet, lifestyle, relationships and habitat are all factors which can affect your natural state of balance. If you know your body type you can create a healthy lifestyle and greater well being.

Discover Your Body Type
In Ayurveda the five elements are organized into three fundamental principles called doshas. The three doshas are vata dosha, pitta dosha and kapha dosha. Each of us are composed of some combination of these three doshas.

Doshas govern the various processes of the body and mind. They create your uniqueness. With some knowledge of the doshas you can begin to track your state of health or your level of balance. Maintain a balance of the doshas to maintain health and prevent future illness from occurring.

Find Ayurveda Near You at Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC

Annoying Snoring or Sleep Apnea? Ask Your Doctor.

Annoying Snoring or Sleep Apnea? Ask Your Doctor.

Sleep apnea was recently mentioned by Joey on the Good Morning Gloucester podcast.  Joey shared his personal struggle as he recently tried to adjust to wearing a sleep apnea mask and joked good naturedly about how the mask can interfere with “sexy time.” I thought this a good opportunity to help increase awareness about sleep apnea risk factors, potential negative effects on health, and possible treatments.

CPAP mask

The CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) mask shown here looks a bit like a medieval torture device, yet can have life-saving benefits.

Sleep Apnea a common disorder in which you have one or more pauses in breathing or shallow breaths while you sleep. Loud snort or choking sound often signifies breathing has begun again. Sleep apnea often goes undiagnosed. (National Institutes of Health.) More than 18 million Americans suffer from sleep apnea. (American Association of Sleep Apnea.)

Types of Sleep Apnea – The most common type of sleep apnea is obstructive sleep apnea (OSA.) This most often occurs in people who are overweight but can also occur in with enlarged tonsils and deviated septum.

Central sleep apnea is less common. This disorder occurs if the area of your brain that controls your breathing doesn’t send the correct signals to your breathing muscles. As a result, you’ll make no effort to breathe for brief periods.

Central sleep apnea is more common in people who have certain medical conditions or use certain medicines. Central sleep apnea can occur alone or with obstructive sleep apnea. Snoring is not typical with central sleep apnea.
