Author Letha Hadady knows what it means to live with pain. And, as an acupuncturist trained in Asian herbs and other treatment modalities, she knows how to overcome pain.
In NATURALLY PAIN FREE, Hadady, who has a spinal disc injury, writes, “The primary function of pain is communication. . . . This book is a tool to stop suffering.”
NATURALLY PAIN FREE is an almost encyclopedic compilation of herbal remedies for chronic and acute pain. aving never read anything like it before, I was grateful for its organization and plain English treatment of an extremely complex subject. It is not, however, simply a textbook on Asian remedies written by an acupuncturist. It is a work of art.Read Full Article
It is a sad fact
that many of the women
in domestic violence shelters,
at any point in time,
will go back to their abusers.

I am also a lover of clouds, trees, wind, stars, all the the colors of sunrise and sunset, surf pounding on rocks, soaring birds, the intricate details in a single flower, and the amazing fact that even the tiniest of spiders have individual faces.Read Full Article
I have trouble making even little decisions about how to help the environment. Say I find a mucked-up glass jar hiding in the back of the refrigerator. Should I rinse it out so that I can recycle it? Or should I toss it in the trash and save the precious fresh water it would take to clean it?
