Science has now officially proved it, walking in the woods is good for your health!

No water necessary, "forest bathing" cleanses, balances and heals by taking in the forest atmosphere. Just mindful walking, unhurried quiet exploring. Breathing in the fragrance of the forest. Opening your senses to the sights, sounds and scents that surround you. A popular activity in Japan, they have been conducti...

Are toxins undermining your weight loss efforts? If you are wondering why it’s so hard to lose weight it may be that toxins in your body are interfering with your metabolism.

What are toxins? Any substances that are poisonous to your system, either from the outside: your food, air, water, environment or the inside: normal products of metabolism that have to be eliminated. The liver is working const...

As winter engulfs the northern hemisphere we can't wait to get back to Costa Rica, to our winter retreat in the sun! Many ancient traditions valued the healing power of the sun. Like all powers, the sun can heal or harm.

We've become a little paranoid about the sun but modern science is beginning to discover how moderate amounts of sun help prevent heart attacks, strokes, cancer, diabetes, autoimmu...

We won't be serving this at CRJR but we're serving it in our house in NY this week, as the first snow falls. I love it when I’m ahead of the curve, the satisfaction of saying “I knew about that years ago!” Suddenly bone broth is everywhere. The real satisfaction is knowing that these ancient healing remedies are being revived. Now that fall is here, cold raw foods and juices just do not have the s...

Practiced for centuries by cultures around the world, including the Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine systems, a detox retreat is about resting, cleansing and nourishing the body and mind. Today, doing a detox has become a bit of a fad with lots of products, programs, and advice out there. Of course that brings out the other side, usually doctors, the "experts", who say it's all nonsense. For example...

Working at a health retreat I find myself engaged in conversations about what to eat to be healthy. There's a lot of devotion out there to various systems; vegan, paleo, raw, and so on... In the midst of it I feel obligated to stand for my perspective that we're all different, and we may even be different today than we were yesterday or will be next week. With that in mind I wanted to share here t...

Change is here again, or is that still? This is a good thing, right? Massage requires change. Adapting, growth, learning all require change. Our world is changing. Some changes are good, some of them bad, even so, most of us are all for change.

If there is no change there is a denial or a stagnation and some movement stops. Some changes seem to happen to us but we also have the ability to initiate...

The colonic cabin has closed it's doors for the season here in Upstate New York. Thirteen years, over 3000 colonics, and I am still unraveling the mysteries of the colon. Every year I make new discoveries, find new ways to connect and coax the colon to let go, to free it from the old and find a new healthy beginning. I still love to see the amazement of people when they see how much they've been c...

The power is out again. It's not uncommon here in the jungle. We’ve adapted pretty well with our jugs of water, flashlights, candles, propane. But in these moments where we really feel the pain...no internet! It’s scary how distressed I can feel. Every few minutes it seems I have a thought that sends me to my computer to check something, Skype someone, inquire about something, plan something, work...
