COVID Vaccines in Kids 5-11: ‘We Need to Explain It Better’

Are You Getting Sick Or Getting Well?

I’ve had the opportunity to work very closely with a lot of people through various stages of the healing process and have seen time and time again that “getting sick” is always tied into a measurable process of healing and evolution in a person’s body and life. I’ve also been fortunate enough to experience the personal growth and evolution that has been born out of my own “getting sick” processes. So I have the relative luxury of a great trust in life and the varied rhythms that life expresses through our bodies at different points in the healing journey…

Vitamin D – Are You Getting Enough As A Canadian?

We often hear that we need to take vitamin D daily, especially during the winter, but do you know why? Do you realise that you should be taken vitamin D daily, period? Did you know that vitamin D is actually more of a hormone than a vitamin? One reason being that vitamins aren’t made by the body, but vitamin D is – actually 90% of it is made by the body if exposed to enough sunlight. You’d think that’d be enough to ward off any vitamin D deficiency, but it’s not.

Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy – Ayurvedic Herbal Treatment

A sudden, reduced blood supply to the brain causes mild or extensive brain damage, leading to a medical condition known as hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy. This condition is also known as global hypoxic-ischemic injury or cerebral hypoxia, in older children and adults. The condition may occur in neonates before the onset of labor, during the actual delivery, or after delivery. Extensive brain damage in neonates may cause abnormal levels of consciousness, muscular tone, reflexes, feeding and respiration; as well as convulsions. The presentation of symptoms is different according to the age group affected. Drowning and asphyxiation are common causes of cerebral hypoxia in older children. In adults, cardiac arrest or cardiovascular diseases cause brain damage due to secondary hypoxia.

Neuromyelitis Optica – Ayurvedic Herbal Treatment

Neuromyelitis optica is a medical condition related to the eyes and is also known as NMO or Devic’s disease. This condition involves a concurrent inflammation and demyelination of the optic nerve as well as the spinal cord. This ultimately causes varying degrees of blindness, as well as symptoms of the lower extremities which include weakness and paralysis of the legs, and bladder as well as bowel dysfunction. This is an auto-immune condition, but is different from multiple sclerosis. NMO may be associated with other systemic diseases, and is diagnosed by the presence of antibodies in the blood. Acute attacks rapidly bring about disability, which can be treated satisfactorily with intravenous steroids, plasmapheresis, and immuno-suppressant drugs. However, this condition displays a tendency for relapse and there is no long-term cure.

Leber’s Optic Atrophy – Ayurvedic Herbal Treatment

Leber’s optic atrophy is a hereditary condition usually transmitted through the mother, in which gradual loss of central vision occurs due to degeneration of nerve cells in the retina. This condition is usually observed in adult young males. The vision loss can be either acute or sub-acute, and is usually observed in one eye, followed a few weeks to a few months later by the other eye. There is no specific treatment for this condition in the modern system of medicine. Conservative management of Leber’s optic atrophy includes regular supervision and monitoring, and avoiding the use of substances which are known to aggravate this condition. These include the use of tobacco, alcohol, and medications like ethambutol and some anti-hypertensive medicines.

Ischemic Optic Neuropathy-Ayurvedic Herbal Treatment

Ischemic optic neuropathy (ION) relates to sudden vision loss which can be complete or partial, and resulting from an interrupted blood supply to the optic nerve. This condition can be either anterior or posterior. The anterior type is more common and relates to disease confined to the retina and the adjacent part of the optic nerve. Posterior ischemic optic neuropathy relates to pathology which can affect the distal part of the optic nerve, usually a distance away from the eyeball.

Getting Sick Is Not What We Think It Is

In general we’re confused about what “getting sick” really is. Our culture is constantly giving us subtle messages about what it means to be “sick.” From a cultural perspective, it means that our immune systems aren’t strong enough. We’re weak when we’re sick. Worst of all, we’re unproductive when we’re sick. Our culture really doesn’t like that. The unconscious urge to stay in the good graces of the culture is strong. As a result we put lots of energy into resisting the “getting sick” process.
