Understanding the Roots of Bullying

When someone with a chronic headache goes to see a medical doctor, chances are high that the medical doctor is going to prescribe a drug that has a great chance of alleviating the pain.  Problem solved….right?  It may be, but it’s not hard to figure out why this approach is so popular; in the mind of the patient with the reduction of the headache, the patient feels relief and often thinks that he is cured. When a patient goes to see a doctor of Chinese medicine, the doctor will provide a thorough examination, not to alleviate the pain, but rather to see what is causing the pain.  When the “root’ cause is discovered, the Chinese doctor then attempts to correct it.  Since the body is so interconnected, the headache could be caused by a problem that originates in the person’s foot, a diagnosis that would be missed with the traditional medical approach.  Both approaches may work; however, when we take the time to understand the root, we have a greater chance of keeping the symptoms from reoccurring.


Ways to Practice The Art Of Being Thankful

Most people have heard the expression “The Attitude of Gratitude,” but beyond knowing the saying how do you ensure it is a part of your consciousness? I see gratitude as a key ingredient to being and feeling our best and it doesn’t have to just be once a year during Thanksgiving. In fact, practicing the daily dose of gratitude may be the best antidote for dealing with the struggles and pressures that face us all. Thanksgiving merely provides a scheduled opportunity to help refocus our perspective rejuvenate our desire to get in touch with this perhaps the very best version of ourselves.

I know for myself that when I come from a place of being grateful everything and everyone else around me seems to improve. Does it really improve? Naturally in many cases things don’t magically change, but what does change is my perspective and most of the time this is all that is necessary.
