Download the Non-GMO Shopping Guide (cooperative effort of The Institute for Responsible Technology The Non-GMO Project)

The Non-GMO Project is a non-profit organization committed to preserving and building sources of non-GMO products (seeds to foods), educating consumers, and providing verified non-GMO choices (because we all deserve the right to know).

The Institute for Responsible Technology focuses on educating policy makers and the public about genetically modified foods and crops. They investigate and report the risks and impact of GMOs “on health, environment, the economy, and agriculture, as well as the problems associated with current research, regulation, corporate practices, and reporting.”

Have you heard about seed lending libraries?  Seed Libraries focus on enriching the community through sharing and educaqtion.  It works similar to a public library, in that you “check-out” seeds and “return” seeds after you have grown and collected from your plants.  Seed libraries are leading a way to “giving the land, food, and wealth back to the people”.  Find a seed library near you… Seed Library Directory – United States

NCCAM- Herbs at a Glance

I want to share with everyone a great resource I found this week.  The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM, a place I love to visit on the web) has a book for free-download and I now have it on my iPad. It is called Herbs at a Glance and is simple but has great references for each herb discussed.  Some of the resources have direct links, which makes finding a good resource easier.

You can check it out for yourself at http://nccam.nih.gov/health/herbsataglance.htm?nav=gsa

Reflections of a Reiki Master

Dr. Earon S. Davis, an Adjunct Professor at Kaplan University’s School of Health Sciences, writes about his experiences with Reiki, a spiritual healing system that uses universal energies in the practice healing (2011).  Many people do not understand what  Reiki is about and often find it odd that someone would use a method that is simply a light  touch or ”laying of hands on” to create healing.  Davis explains how it is often looked at as an odd method but those that seek healing of the body, mind, emotion, and spirit (whole health) often seek methods such as this (2011).  This is a helpful article for those that do not understand this concept.
