Our body responds to the choices our mind makes  ~ Rose Kumar, M.D.
Every Choice Matters

Kalpana (Rose) M. Kumar, M.D.
 Fast results are unnatural for the body. Dr. Kumar's article explains how our choices and the quick-fix we so often seek (as supported by the traditional medical system of symptom management) actually causes us to lose our connection to the sacred rhythms of life and ignores our body's innate, healing intelligence.

Victim Consciousness & The Victim/Perpetrator 
Paradigm (Part 1)

Eric Ehrke, LCSW, LMFT

There is a slippery slope, called Victim Consciousness, when we interpret negative interactions with others as a victimization event. It's a seductive method of dealing with aggression directed toward us for which we habitually fail to accept any personal responsibility and thereby dissociate from our own urges of retaliation. By becoming the hero/heroine of our story of suffering we are relieved of honest self-reflection and we can feel we deserve "compensation" for pain endured.  Read Part I of Eric's article on the Victim/Perpetrator paradigm and watch for Part II next month.

Mummy's Healthcare
