Wild Bergamot (Monarda fistulosa) (aka as bee balm or horse mint) growing in the East Kootenays of British Columbia, Canada.
It grows throughout most of North America. Many First Nations and Native Americans recognized wild bergamot as a medicinal plant. It was often used to make tea by the Ktunaxa and many other peoples.

Diseases of the Present
The magic word "Success" creates lots of psychological diseases, related with stress, risks, hard work, late nights, early mornings, struggles, failures, practicing till it hurts, loss of social life, divorces, depressions, egoism.....
Success is related with business, money, and is the escape from failure, from not seen and being miserable, to being honored. 
Success is a part of that business that does not take the responsibility for its consequences, by not taking nature as a part of the so eagerly wanted success. Nature is suffering, and climate change and its effects are the visible effect of what is the greed for money, of success in business.

Success is the top of an iceberg. The under part is not seen and there is the dark side, the hidden danger. 
All icebergs are melting, however.

LinkedIn is doing business with the magic word "success", making it visible that only those who are successful in even writing posts are worth it to be named «influencers». In what way they influence? In what way LinkedIn tries to influence the small, hardly visible members among the giants? In sending even not asked information how to improve the amount of followers! To become as «successful» as those top influencers on LinkedIn. For what? Why? ...

Pine, Pinus Sylvestrus
The Pine is beloved for all its products, from wood for building the traditional Norwegian houses and furniture, to firewood, products like paper, and matches. It is also used because of its lovely relaxing and uplifting smell, available via essential oils, used in aroma therapy for their health benefits, and also as a remedy in the products of Dr. Edward Bach. The needles are used for making tea. Pine buds are also very healthy, not only for animals (squirrel) and birds, but also for human beings.

Where I live in Norway, and in Norway in general, the Pinus Sylvestris, Scots Pine, Pine, or in Norwegian «Furu», in Dutch: Grove Den, this tree is covering the landscapes, the mountains, and the valleys with its wonderful energizing green color, and its exquisite relaxing and uplifting smell. It is green (all pines are) during the entire year, strong and intense. It gives a really heartwarming impression for all senses in each season. In winter ...

Transforming Worldviews with Science
http://vimeo.com/115287880
Worldview Explorations is research-based experiential program for middle school, high-school, and college students. The 22 lessons in the Worldview Explorations program were developed in alignment with Common Core, 21st Century Skills, and Social Emotional Learning. The lessons include self-reflective practices and project-based group activities that can be integrated into existing classroom subject areas.

CEO's research to date suggests the most powerful step people can take toward achieving their highest potential is the willingness and ability to understand new perspectives. By making youth aware of the lenses through which they experience the world we prepare them to become compassionate and self-aware leaders of a global society.

Birch and Man
Through the centuries the birch is, despite its modest and simple appearance, described by man in poems and stories, celebrated in songs, and more recent also photographed endlessly by amateurs and professionals, for its special, mostly white colored, with some gray, brown and black nuances, rough, flaking bark, the splendor of its fragile, capricious wayward branches, and the beautiful shiny green in the wind rustling leaves, in autumn creating strong flaming yellow colors. These yellow colors explode in the landscapes, between the dark green of the pine trees all around me, where I live in Norway. When autumn is coming to an end and storms are blowing with a strong wind it is raining yellow leaves, falling down finally and covering the earth, nourishing the soil and micro life there.
For the native peoples in the areas where the birch is common (or even entire forests are filled with his presence) the birch was/is a supplier of natural material, made from the bark for making roofs (as tiles), canoes, to weave, to make fire, and has often been a source of food in times of scarcity and famine (people made "flour" for bread out of the powdered bark), is food for animals such as the Elg (Norwegian moose) and is also traditionally popular for its recuperative and health-giving juices. In Norway people made cups out of the hard as stone cancer spots in de stem of the tree.

Characteristics, qualities and health benefits of the birch
The birch though it looks simple and modest, a strong tree. The wood that this tree forms is hardwood. The tree belongs to the same family as the oak and the beech, so perhaps it is therefore, because these trees are also known as producers of hardwood. 
However, the birch can grow at altitudes where no other tree has life chances. I see in the birch a property, a quality that I recognize in a human being who goes on and on and does not forsake, not quit, not even in the most harsh conditions or cicumstances. Higher up in the mountains the stems of the birch trees are thinner, lesser and lesser massive, and the trees are lesser tall. More higher the stems are so fragile that the tree is hanging over and will keep finally a fixed position, in the direction in which the wind pushes the tree during its growth. Higher up in the mountains the tree is not more than a shrub. But still present. What a power! 
When spring is there the tree "knows" exactly how to manage the growth process very quickly from the full winter passivity to the full spring activity, to create buttons, flowers, leaves, to expand. This  has a reason. In the Norwegian mountains, for example, it is quite fast summer after a very short spring of hardly a week, and then again it is too fast autumn and winter. The summers are short, so nature must complete a huge complete program in a relatively short time. The birch collects moisture throughout the year in the roots, enriched moisture absorbed by the tree out of the soil, with all its natural nutritious substances. Those juices are pumped up in the spring, in the birch, for new buds, twigs, blossoms, leaves, for the growth of the tree, the trunk, new bark. The strength of this process, is trapped in its entirety in the juices, and it is, therefore, that these juices are so healthy, also for humans.
In spring, when the stored birch sap is pumped up from the roots, it is time to drain the birch tree. It is also in spring that we have to detoxificate and revitalize our body, after a long winter with not enough sunlight, fresh fruit,vegetables, fresh air and physical training. 

Birch sap
Birch sap contains substances that are proved to be healthy because of its stimulating effect on the kidneys and liver and therefore stimulating to detoxify the body.
It works as a diuretic, ie it promotes the urine production operation through better kidney function.
Through improved liver function the blood will be cleansed, and fat can be burnt.
Active substances:
Birch juice contains natural carbohydrates, organic acids, fruit acids, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, zinc, sodium, iron and copper, vitamins B (group), vitamin C.

More birch products via essential oils and mother tinctures
The use of essential oil is practiced in natural medicine, especially in aromatherapy. Essential oil is also used in cosmetics and body care products.
The essential oil can be extracted from birch tar oil by steam distillation. The leaf oil, extracted from the leaf buds, is pale yellow, with a woody balsamic scent. The purified birch tar oil is brownish-yellow with a smoky, tarry leather scent, and is highly prevalent.

Essential oils (used in aromatherapy) and mother tinctures Essential oils (used in aromatherapy) and mother tinctures (phyto-therapeutic products in general) have a medicinal effect. It is therefore not wise to experiment with the production or use. There is specialized knowledge needed to create a good product, and therefore the production of medicinal natural health remedies belongs to the professionals, to the experts. In order to make the correct diagnosis and to give the right advice about a disease or disorder an acknowledged naturopath is absolutely necessary.

Death of a Forest
http://vimeo.com/18758046
With global warming evident in many places around the world, the forests of North America are undergoing huge changes. The pine beetle and pine trees have co-evolved together and until the past 2-3 decades, the numbers of beetles have been kept in check by very cold winters that would kill the beetles, thus limiting their lifespan and ability to reproduce. However, with warmer temperatures during the winters, the beetles are surviving in astounding numbers and are killing the forests of the western US and Canada. To date millions of acres of forests and billions of trees are dead and there is no end in sight. Some estimates predict that by 2013, 80% of the North American forests could be gone. In addition, we are losing forests that otherwise provide a carbon sink for our production of greenhouse gases, and as the trees die, they emit more Carbon Dioxide back into the atmosphere. Nothing, except very cold winter weather, will stop the beetles.

This video was a Finalist at the United Nations Year of the Forest Film Festival for 2011.
In addition to the UN Festival, Death of a Forest also won a Life Science Award at Prague University Film Festival in the Czech Republic and at the Sondrio Forest Film Festival in Italy.
Nominated at the Reel Earth Environmental Film Festival for the 'Best Science Communication Film Award'.

Universal Knowledge / Oneness  - 
 
Death is a door to a deeper and higher consciousness. That consciousness is endlessly evolving.
Near death experiences are for all humans with all kinds of religions and philosophies of life exactly the same. Pim van Lommel explains in this interview more about it.

Pim van Lommel
Pim van Lommel (born 15 March 1943) is a Dutch author and cardiologist.
Van Lommel is best known for his scientific work on the subjects of near-death experiences and consciousness, including a prospective study published in the medical journal The Lancet.

He gained public attention as the author of the 2007 Dutch bestseller titled: Eindeloos Bewustzijn: een wetenschappelijke visie op de Bijna-Dood Ervaring (English: Endless Consciousness: A scientific approach to the near-death experience), which has been translated to German, English, French, Polish and Spanish. The English translation is titled: Consciousness Beyond Life, The Science of the Near-Death Experience (Harper Collins, 2010).

Where can I find a practitioner?
The American Association of Naturopathic Physicians is the primary professional association for naturopathic physicians in USA. They maintain a national database of naturopathic physicians for patient referrals.
Each country has one or more official and acknowledged (trained within the country's guidelines for it) naturopaths. I am sure google is a good help. 

Local health food stores often know of naturopathic practitioners in the community.
