Robert Enright is considered as a scientific authority on forgiveness. "Our science shows that as people make the decision to forgive and follow a valid process of forgiving, then the one who forgives experiences considerable psychological relief such as reduced anger, anxiety, and depression, and an increase in self-esteem." Although it is not an easy task, this journal guides you through a process of forgiveness. Finding heartfelt forgiveness might just be the thing that has saved me a thousand times over.

Anger is such good energy, why do we waste it? This meditation is a helpful way to re-channel that good energy so that we can more easily take our space. There are basically four things we can do with anger, we can direct it outwards, we can direct it towards ourselves or we can suppress it. We either beat up the world, or beat ourselves up, or we ignore it. The fourth way is to turn it back into a good and useful energy, and this meditation can show us how.

A doctor's perspective, very similar to what homeopaths have been saying for 200+ years.

After working with thousands of people, the psychiatrist and brain disorder specialist Daniel Amen found that the best antidepressant by far was asking his patients to write down 3 things a day that they were grateful for. He found that people who did this for 3 weeks saw a significant increase in their level of happiness. Those are good odds to work with. This 31 day journal was designed to help you develop and exercise your gratitude 'muscles.' Inside the journal there are reminders of things you can be grateful about, quotes and reflections on gratitude, and how gratitude is directly linked to our health.

Unfortunately, a lot of us develop anxiety and tension around the holiday season. The reasons can be multifold but the result is usually the same. Sitting at the dinner table with family members who, for whatever reason, get under our skin, press our buttons and have us reaching for one too many glasses of wine. The mood is tense, something huge is never said, or it is and then the evening goes from pleasantries to dramas, and everyone goes home exhausted and wondering why that person can't be more something or other, or why that family member just doesn't get it.

The trauma of post-concussion syndrome

Concussion or Traumatic Brain Injury can alter the way the brain functions. The effects may be temporary and include what are considered as milder symptoms such as short attention span, slowed thinking, reduced ability to learn and process information, headaches, fatigue, sleep disturbances, impatience, frustration, confusion, poor judgement, depression, mood swings, blurred vision and vomiting. There is often a loss of consciousness when the trauma occurs but it is not always the case, and therefore a person is often not aware they have had a concussion. When there is a severe head injury, there is a greater risk to the brain and the symptoms can also include unconsciousness, fits or seizures, difficulty speaking or staying awake, vomiting, blood or clear fluid coming from the ears or nose, memory loss, swelling and bruising around the eyes or behind the ears, difficulty walking and possibly death.

We now know that previous head injuries can seriously aggravate a current head injury and this is something that professional athletes and active people are aware of. However, as was Tom's case, there is no recognized medical treatment for concussion other than rest, medications for headache, and ongoing observation that the patient's condition does not get worse, or in the most extreme case a surgical procedure may be suggested. What people don't always know is that homeopathy has many remedies for concussion and trauma to the brain. ... read more.

Refugees in Canada

New immigrants to Canada can carry trauma that impedes their future progress

Refugees come in various shades and are people that must leave their home and current location for reasons of safety and survival, often with no opportunity to return. They are people who are oppressed, displaced, persecuted or fleeing natural disasters, and often need to find a new home by immigrating to another country and culture. This is never an easy process, neither the events leading up to the decision to leave and the process of getting to a safer destination nor the transition period of acculturation and resettlement. ... read more.

Stress and Anxiety, what we can do?

Recent research is shedding light on what stress is doing to the body. In his article Stress and Allostasis Induced Brain Plasticity Dr. McEwen explains how the brain and the mind are the source of stress processes. The brain has a dynamic and plastic neural circuitry that coordinates, monitors, and calibrates behavioural and physiological stress response systems in order to meet the demands imposed by particular stressors. These processes can be adaptive in the short term (allostasis -the process of achieving stability, or homeostasis, through physiological or behavioural change) and maladaptive in the long term (allostatic load -"the wear and tear on the body" which grows over time when the individual is exposed to repeated or long-term/chronic stress). ... to read more.
