Keep Off Holiday Weight - Cari Wira Dineen

Truth time: The average American gains about a pound between Halloween and New Year's, according to a New England Journal of Medicine study. While a pound or two doesn't sound like a lot, if you put on just two pounds a year over the course of 10 years, you'll be up 20 pounds—something that experts refer to as "creeping obesity." 


Meditation As Medicine - Dharma Singh Khalsa, M.D.

Proven effective by scientific research and presented here by Dr. Dharma Singh Khalsa and Cameron Stauth, the practice of Medical Meditation revolutionizes the healing process. By balancing and regenerating the body's ethereal and physical energies through simple meditations, Medical Meditation unites the mind, body, and spirit into a powerful triad.


Each Medical Meditation here has a specific physiological effect, targeting afflictions from arthritis to ulcers to cancer. Dr. Khalsa details the five unique attributes that endow this type of meditation with far more power than standard meditation. The combination of special postures and movements; exact positioning of the hands and fingers; particular mantras; specific breathing patterns; and a unique focus of concentration can change your entire biochemical profile, easing you into a calm, healing state. Practiced in conjunction with conventional or alternative medical treatments, cutting-edge Medical Meditation activates the healing force within you.

These same 'obesity' genes are out of sync with present day needs, but still drive our food preferences.
