Happy Independence Day!

This month marks our nation’s 238th birthday. It’s not a nice, neatly numbered anniversary like the 200th or 250th, to be sure — but it is an important one. Those 238 years show that Americans are still dedicated to pursuing and protecting freedom, whatever that might mean to them individually and as a nation.

For some, freedom means the ability to make a living doing what they love, perhaps by sharing with others not only the physical, but the spiritual and psychological benefits of yoga. For others, it’s the right to say what they really think or to make sure everyone has the information they need to make informed choices (we here at Nature’s Pathways are pretty partial to this one, we’ll admit). And for others still, it’s the simple opportunity to live a healthy, happy life, enjoying the company of friends and family.

What are the freedoms you hold most dear? What do you fight for in your life?

If you wish to pursue freedom from not knowing or understanding the medicine you’re taking or the treatments you receive, read on. Bryant Hess explains how “Essential oils are intelligent medicine,” while Saukville Chiropractic Center’s Dr. Ty Wade elaborates on how “The sixth sense” plays a role in health and wellness.

Some people crave freedom from the daily 9-to-5 grind. New writer Dan Conlon offers insight into how owning a home-based business can help individuals “Crack the prosperity code.”

Perhaps you also want to pursue the knowledge needed to help your furry friends lead healthy long lives. Veterinarian Jodie Gruenstern of Animal Doctor Holistic Veterinary Complex offers “Kitchen sink cures” and Kathleen Folz of Bark N’ Scratch Outpost provides “From nose to tail: Summer protection for your dog.”

This July, take some time to reflect on those opportunities you wouldn’t want to live without and do your part to keep freedom alive.

Wishing you good health in all respects,

The Nature’s Pathways Team

We have been convinced as a society that our bodies are of the physical world only. We are made up of simple building blocks — flesh, blood and cells — that all work independently. The mechanistic paradigm describes these parts as similar to those of a machine; they will inevitably…
Holistic health, as an alternative approach to wellness, does not function in competition with the American Medical Association but rather works in conjunction with it, aiming to present safe, common-sense, tried-and-true tools for self-maintenance, prevention and health on all levels — physical, emotional and spiritual. Holistic health sees the body,…
Warrior Pose 1, 2 and 3 — or Virabhadrasana 1, 2 and 3 — can instill fear or boredom. But why? It is a very strength-related asana and it is incorporated into many yoga classes, but do we know why we do it? And what is it all about? The…
Often I am asked about how to find love, express love or receive love. The whole world seems to be starving for love and even those “in love” desire their love to be deeper and more meaningful. The answer I give people always surprises them. I tell them that love…
Have you heard the expression “throw the kitchen sink at them”? In my veterinary practice, I commonly use this phrase to explain one of my treatment options. Conventional-minded practitioners would be appalled at this approach, yet science produces evidence every day that this is the best approach to medicine and…
“Can I tell you how it feels here?” she asked on her first visit to my home. “Sure,” I replied, “I’m open to feedback.” “It feels old.” That’s all she needed to say. Of course it does, I thought. I’ve known it for a while but not actually admitted it…
Iodine is one of nature’s most amazing minerals. Unfortunately for our health, it is one that has been largely forgotten. But it wasn’t always that way. Before the widespread use of synthetic drugs, iodine was recommended for everything: healing wounds and disease, destroying bacteria and viruses, and possibly even preventing…
In their report, “Smart Choices for Biofuels,” the Sierra Club and World Watch state that ethanol production has contributed to rising food, feed grain and soybean prices, and has failed to deliver real solutions to lowering greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Rather than utilizing waste solids, most biofuels are being produced…
The average person takes more than 600 million breaths in his or her lifetime. Those 600 million will soon be a little easier, thanks to Jonas Zahn, who is pledging his own impressive number: 10 million trees. Zahn is founder of Northwoods Casket Company, a Beaver Dam-based business that creates…
Yes, that’s right; imagine all the tasty things that go through your lips slipping right off your hips! It is possible to eat yummy food, including chocolate, and still be healthy. Our special open door, the mouth, is the largest on the human body. It’s a very active part of…
