Midwifery may well be the oldest healing profession known to humans. The word “midwife,” derived from old English, means “with woman.” In French the word for midwife, sage femme, means “wise woman.” The Danish word for midwife, jordmoder, means “earth mother” and the Icelandic word, ljosmodir, means “mother of light.” In most cultures midwives have enjoyed a place of honor, respected for their remarkable skills, wisdom and prowess as healers. Yet in the United States midwives are as endangered as the spotted owl or the gray wolf. And like these animals, midwives face significant threats to their way of life. The United States is one of the few countries in the modern world to have ever outlawed midwives. In 1923 there were about 60,000 midwives practicing in the United States. By the 1960s traditional midwives were all but extinct. Slowly midwives have been making a comeback, but it has not been easy. Today there are roughly 8000-10,000 practicing midwives…

The Boy Who Believes He Was Lou Gehrig In A Past Life

The Boy Who Believes He Was Lou Gehrig In A Past Life

Mar 27

Cathy Byrd’s 2-year-old son, Christian Haupt, was a baseball prodigy who spent countless hours pitching and hitting balls, and insisted on wearing a baseball uniform every day. In 2011 his outstanding abilities even landed the boy a small part in the Adam Sandler movie That’s My Boy. But in her new memoir, The Boy Who Knew Too Much, Byrd shares an even more improbable story that even she had trouble believing at first: She claims that Christian was the reincarnation of baseball legend Lou Gehrig, who played for the Yankees nearly a century ago…

Scientists Reverse Aging In Mammals And Predict Human Trials Within 10 Years

Scientists Reverse Aging In Mammals And Predict Human Trials Within 10 Years

Dec 15

Using a new technique which takes adult cells back to their embryonic form, US researchers at the Salk Institute in California, showed it was possible to reverse ageing in mice, allowing the animals to not only look younger, but live for 30 per cent longer. The technique involves stimulating four genes which are particularly active during development in the womb. It was also found to work to turn the clock back on human skin cells in the lab, making them look and behave younger. Scientists hope to eventually create a drug which can mimic the effect of the found genes which could be taken to slow down, and even reverse the ageing process. They say it will take around 10 years to get to human trials.

Reconsider Columbus Day

Reconsider Columbus Day

Oct 10

For many in the United States, Columbus Day is just another holiday. It is a time to spend with family and friends, an opportunity to take a short vacation, an extra day of rest from a long work week, or it is the last chance for a barbecue before winter. But for others, it is a sharp and painful reminder that history has betrayed and forgotten the contributions of their people, the lives lost, and a rich culture that pre-dated colonization.

From the moment a sailor aboard the Pinta sighted land from the sea, on October 12, 1492, the course of indigenous history was forever changed. Upon landing on what is now the Bahamas, once known as Guanahani, Columbus encountered indigenous peoples of the Lucayan, Taíno or Arawak, nations. Peaceful and friendly, Columbus and his Spanish explorers manipulated their hospitality and mercilessly slaughtered, enslaved, and stole lands in the name of the Spanish crown. He wrote of them in his journal, “They ought to make good and skilled servants, for they repeat very quickly whatever we say to them”…

Blue Zones: Why Diet & Exercise Don’t Work

Blue Zones: Why Diet & Exercise Don’t Work

Aug 18

If you look at how humans have evolved over time they didn’t sit down at a desk or on their couch for eight hours and then hope to make it up for a half hour or 45 minutes in the gym. Blue Zones is an extension of how people have lived forever. They live in environments that nudge them into moving every 20 minutes or so. It’s a natural inclination because humans have worked too hard for most of the history of our species that now we have technology mechanized — combustion engines do a lot of work for us. The sad byproduct is the work our bodies were engineered to do no longer gets done; our bodies don’t get the regular low-intensity movement they need to thrive…

Quote: Joseph Campbell

Apr 16

“Whatever your fate is, whatever the hell happens, you say, ‘This is what I need.’ It may look like a wreck, but go at it as though it were an opportunity, a challenge. If you bring love to that moment — not discouragement — you will find the strength is there. Any disaster that you can survive is an improvement in your character, your stature, and your life. What a privilege! This is when the spontaneity of your own nature will have a chance to flow.

“Then, when looking back at your life, you will see that the moments which seemed to be great failures followed by wreckage were the incidents that shaped the life you have now. You’ll see that this is really true. Nothing can happen to you that is not positive. Even though it looks and feels at the moment like a negative crisis, it is not. The crisis throws you back, and when you are required to exhibit strength, it comes.”

— Joseph Campbell

New Book: ‘The Wisdom of Near-Death Experiences’ (Updated)

New Book: ‘The Wisdom of Near-Death Experiences’ (Updated)

Apr 12

This book considers a wide range of experiences of dying patients that Dr. Sartori has encountered during her nursing career. It focuses on the near-death experiences (NDEs) of patients Dr. Sartori has nursed as well as the hundreds of cases of people who have contacted her over the years. Many people take NDEs at surface value and are mis-informed about the full extent of this highly complex phenomenon. This book examines all aspects of the NDE and Dr. Sartori emphasizes that by pathologising the NDE we are missing out on very important insights which can empower us to live fulfilled and meaningful lives…
