The most common lament and complaint that I hear from women of all ages is that they hate their arms.

We found this great article on the Sleep Solutions site and wanted to share it with you.
With summer on the way, many older women are actually dreading the approach of warmer weather. The reason is that they’re dealing with the symptoms of menopause.

Joe Pilates recognized the importance of a strong core. He aptly named it your Powerhouse. Your core or Powerhouse includes the abdomen, lower back and pelvis and all the muscles that help to stabilize and move these body parts.
In his method of training called contrology, he focused on the correct use of these essential core muscles throughout every entire exercise so as to maintain appropriate positioning of the body while other muscles are activated.
When your core muscles are strong and educated they know exactly what to do to stabilize your lower back, pelvis and spine while you move your arms and legs.
Without this body awareness you become prone to injury and a weak core is mostly the explanation for lower back pain.read more

Leading up to Thanksgiving I always become extraordinarily aware of how remarkable the human body is.
Always trying to heal, correct and compensate; the human body maintains a level of homeostasis all on its own. We miraculously breathe, digest, eliminate and more without ever thinking about it and yet mindlessly take it all for granted.

Please read this wonderful article written by my dear friend, Dino Guglielmelli of Creations Gardens, on the importance of cleansing.
The Importance of Cleansing
Don’t be afraid to cleanse, you will feel like a new person regardless of how healthy your diet and lifestyle may be, we are still consuming toxicity at an increasingly amazing rate. We must assist the body in removing these unhealthy and unwanted toxins from our system. To understand the importance of cleansing we must first visualize the large intestine or colon, one of the five eliminatory organs in the body. This magnificent organ in the lower abdominal area of the body when stretched and pulled is 5-6 feet in length and up to 6 inches wide. I want you to take a moment and imagine how much residual waste can be stored in such a massive organ.read more
