Dog Medicine
Kalpana (Rose) M. Kumar, M.D.
When the Man waked up he said, "What is Wild Dog doing here?' And the Woman said, 'His name is not Wild Dog any more, but the First Friend, because he will be our friend for always and always and always." -- Rudyard Kipling
"A dog can't change the world but they can change your world. And if each of us can pass along even a fraction of the unmitigated, world changing love we receive from our dogs, maybe we can see about that whole changing the world thing." -- Will from Will and Mr. Eko
I still feel the profound loss of my beloved dog and soul companion Jazmine who died in May, 2015. No, she has not appeared to me in a dream yet, (I'm still waiting) but I feel her love every now and then during moments of loneliness, heartache or struggle. Her gentle presence says, "I love you Mom," and I can exhale and not feel so alone in those moments. I still reach down by my leg for Jazmine while I am reading or studying or watching a show, and feel the impression of her beautiful imprint she left by my side. I feel into the imprint to see if I can feel her -- her warmth, love, support and yes, her goofiness. What a personality she was, and proud of it. 

Coconut Milk Cacao-sicles
Sarah Philip, Certified Holistic Nutritionist
I hope everyone is having a happy summer!
The weather has gotten warmer, which I love. For those of you struggling to make the right choices when it comes to cool treats on these hot days, here is a recipe for you! I remember growing up with fudgesicles all summer-long. Of course, back then, I never bothered to look at what's in them.
First of all, they are loaded with sugar. Usually, people see "low fat" or "no fat", and feel they are doing "the right thing". However, not having fat can leave these ty pes of products lacking flavor, and food companies will often load with even more sugar to make them more palatable. 

Why Should Everyone Have 
Regular Massages?
Leslie Jaeschke, Licensed Massage Therapist
Many people agree that getting a massage makes them feel good, but many don't realize that having a massage regularly is great for your overall health.
Massage can improve sports performance, aid recovery and prevent injuries, reduce stress, and enhance circulation.
So where do you turn wh en you're not feeling your best? There are many health treatments available, so how do you choose? Think about this, the Chinese began using massage to heal the human body as long ago as 5,000 BC and it's been in continuous use through today! 

Needle This: Study Hints at How Acupuncture Works to Relieve Stress
Aimee Brown, Licensed Acupuncturist/Master of Oriental Medicine
This article link,  Needle This: Study Hints at How Acupuncture Works to Relieve Stress, published in 2013 provides easy-to-understand information about how acupuncture treatment can resolve symptoms of stress, as well as including research results about other benefits.  
I'm especially interested in the study about stress and the fact that the acupuncture point used in the study suggests the "gut-brain connection" which is so much a part of current medical literature.  
Toward the end of the article you'll see a comprehensive list of conditions for which the World Health Organization (WHO) states acupuncture is a proven and effective therapy.    I encourage everyone to take the time to read this article.
