I'm the ultimate skeptic. I have a hard time with people who say they're psychic or "in touch" with the spiritual world. Intuitives give me pause. Feng shui, you say? Sounds delicious...

So I question everything. If you're the real deal, prove it. If I think you're successful, then maybe I'll come around to your point of view. If not, at least I'm entertained for a bit.

Needless to say as editor of a healthy living magazine I meet a lot of proponents of these types of beliefs. And despite being skeptical, I always try to have an open mind. In fact, I never dismiss anything outright; I just need a bit of convincing before I get on board with whatever belief or healing modality you ascribe to.

So imagine my surprise when I met Jesse Martinez of Mystical Earth Gallery (MEG), Appleton. Despite being a healer and psychic, he feels the same way I do about these things. His skeptical attitude, rather than give me pause, just made me all the more intrigued. During our conversation he offered to give me a psychic reading. I haven't taken him up on his offer as of this writing, but perhaps I will. (Curiosity killed the cat, and all that...) Read more about what he and the folks at MEG have to offer starting on page 50.

One thing I know for sure is that we're in the last weeks of summer before school begins. Talk to any parent and you'll soon learn the anticipation he or she feels in the days leading up to the first day of school is akin to that of waking up on Christmas morning. (Of course, talk to any school-age child and their attitude is usually the opposite.)

Of course I love my kids. And I love the care-free days of summer just as much as they do. But around this time they're ready for something more. Schedules and structured learning beckon. They do well with those things, as do I.

The takeaway? Savor the remaining days of summer. Take each day as it comes without thinking too far ahead. "Back to the grind" will be here soon enough.

Genital sweating is not something most people are comfortable talking about. But the reality is that millions of men and women are affected by it. The good news is that not only do we talk about genital sweating — we also treat it. Aside from the embarrassment and the discomfort,…
Dr. Julie Wyss says her first pregnancy was not what she expected. She and her husband, Dr. Skip Wyss, sought out natural healthcare and planned as much as possible. As educated pediatric chiropractors, they thought they were in good position to experience a positive pregnancy, and then labor and delivery.…
Why do people put so much energy and time into what is on top of their head? Why do they spend so much time focusing on what is no longer on top of their head? Think about why hair causes so much emotional turmoil in our minds. It makes us…

I always find it interesting to figure out what draws us to certain colors and how we respond to certain colors over others. Color is studied not only in the artistic world, but also in the world of science, medicine and spiritual practice. So is it more than what "strikes…
Imagine treating hooded lids, falling cheeks and lazy jaw lines without surgery. Ultherapy®, a new non-invasive lift indication, does just that. Using ultrasound energy, this procedure reaches the damaged skin layers that cause skin to sag without disrupting the surface. Ultherapy constitutes a brand new category in aesthetics — non-invasive…
Are you fatigued? Stressed? Eating fast food more than you should? Are your thoughts cloudy and you feel run down? Nervous? Do you have a headache? Are you having trouble remembering things? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are most likely oxygen deprived. It happens to…
I have been an active dentist for 35 years. One of the most frustrating problems dentists face is preventing or stopping decay. I have tried everything that has come along. Preaching brushing and flossing helped many people, while alienating more. The national brand toothpastes and mouth rinses should surely have…
Close your eyes. Focus your imagination backwards in time; take your mind back centuries to ancient Egypt. Visualize the grandeur in which the rulers and royalty lived daily at the palace. You will see her there. Cleopatra. Her beauty and story is synonymous with ancient Egypt. Picture her as she…

Jesse Martinez has always felt a connection to the spiritual realm. Beginning at the age of 3, he recalls having visions. As a young boy, he would listen to his grandmother's stories of the "ancient ones." Eventually she would pass down the stories of her people, the Apache and Yak…
It's normal every once in a while to forget a phone number, the day of the week or what you just came in to a room to do. Memory changes, confusion and disorientation associated with Alzheimer's, however, grow progressively worse over time. The early-stage warning signs may develop gradually and…
