Find sources of Spring Water at Findaspring.com - (http://findaspring.com) Some people have inquired where we get our natural spring water for our office. If you are interested in finding sources of Spring Water go to this website. We personally get our water from a natural spring in Danville. However, there are a number of natural springs within an hour and half from Columbus Ohio. The Find a Spring website list sources of Spring Water both in the United States and throughout the world. I and my wife have personally used Spring water for the past 5+ years. After having used Spring Water, I personally would not go back to using either tap or filtered water. If we travel and we do not have access to Spring Water we try only to buy water that is labeled as Artesian Spring Water (companies such as Fuji and others).
Marilyn's Organic Juicing Recipe - This is the juicing mixture that my wife Marilyn (a holistic RN) put together and we often use when we do juicing. Using a juicer mix together - 8 Carrots, 1 Beet with Stem and Leaves, 1 Broccoli Stem, 1 cup or more of Spinach Leaves, 4 Romaine Lettuce Leaves, 1 small Cucumber, 1 stalk of Celery with Leaves, 1 Apple including Peel (Fuji), 6 sprigs of Parsley, 1 clove of Garlic (optional but recommended), 1 small piece of Ginger Root. If the recipe is not consumed over several days you may freeze some of it to preserve the freshness. You may make several batches at a time pouring it into mason jars. Then put one jar in the refrigerator and store the rest in the freezer thawing out a jar as needed. Drink 6 oz of this mixture daily. If the appetite is small or diarrhea occurs start with smaller amounts and gradually increase the amount as tolerated.

Liberty Health Share - http://www.LiberthyHealthShare.org - 855.585.4237 - An alternative to expensive healthcare. This is a Christian based non-profit organization that coordinates contributions for the sharing of qualifying health care costs between members. This is an excellent example as a Christian Community coming together to truly support one another. This is not an insurance company nor is it offered through an insurance company. However, it does offer an opportunity as Christians to share in one another's healthcare expenses. Check out the description of their program thoroughly and what they offer or do not offer. I am personally convinced that this is a viable alternative to health insurance. Go to their website and look at their program and if it is right or not right for you.

I predominantly use Nature's Sunshine vitamins and supplements but use some other supplements and essential oil products as well - https://www.naturessunshine.com?referrer=279000&offer=NSP Nature's Sunshine is a well known company that has been selling vitamins and supplements for many years. I have personally used their products for over 22+ years. I get about 85 - 90% of my vitamins and supplements through them. Other than their products, I also use essential oils, toothpaste, and mouthwash through Young Living and also use a few products through Standard Process. All three companies provide excellent products. However, you have to order Standard Process products specifically through a healthcare practitioner (my wife has a holistic practice as a Nurse and I get Standard Process through her). Nature's Sunshine products and Standard Process are reasonably priced and affordable. Young Living products, to me seem like they cost more than some other essential oil products but I personally like Young Living products over others such as Doterra because in my own estimation they just seem to me to be a slightly better product (however, that is just my own opinion). That being said, I know lots of people who also use Doterra and I know that is also a good product as well so each person just has to choose what works best for them. If you are interested in ordering Nature's Sunshine products you can use the link above. If you are interested in Standard Process products you would have to obtain their product directly through a healthcare practitioner and my wife could help you find someone. Finally, if you don't have someone that you currently know to obtain Young Living products from (they are sold through independent distributors) and you are interested in setting up an account for yourself to order products directly send me an email me and I can get you set up in your own account to order products from them.
Muse 2: the Brain Sensing Headband -
I use the Muse 2 headband with my patients to teach them mindfulness skills. It is a relatively inexpensive personal biofeedback device that monitors brain and body activities and can be used in conjunction with an app that offers a variety of mindfulness exercises to promote reduced stress and improved focus. I can usually get a discount for patients or others wanting to purchase a Muse headband if they contact me first before buying. What I especially like about the Muse headband is that as compared to other apps such as breath programs on the apple watch, or other online apps for mobile devices such as calm, headspace, pray.com and others is that all of those apps provide guided exercises or calming meditative instructions or stories that are designed to help you calm yourself but none of them provide you with measured feedback actually measuring your own physiological or brain functioning so you can track your progress in actual measures of calming and quieting. If you are interested in exploring in getting a discount in ordering the Muse headband email me at [email protected] specifically requesting this and I will forward to you the information that you need.
