Well, so how are you holding up during these disorienting times? Having your ups and downs, are you? Egads, we can relate. In fact, all of us here in the virtual office are feeling your pain and some of our own too. But please know that we’re thinking about you, we’re answering your questions and concerns as fast and as patiently as we can, and we’re here to say this too shall pass. The world may look different when it does, but it will still be here.
And we will all suffer our losses – some I know already have - but I’ll bet we’ll be smarter, better and kinder for having had to engage in this stay-alive exercise of thinking about ourselves in the whole - as an aggregate of humans that must survive this.
So, it may seem gratuitous or superfluous to start talking about bone loss during an Apocalypse, People, but actually it’s not – weakened bones can actually be deadly too, even if at a more leisurely pace than the coronavirus.
Okay, it’s here!!
Guided Imagery for Resisting and Preventing Viral Infection by mind-body pioneer (and extremely good guy), Emmett Miller MD, has been edited, equalized, de-essed, de-popped, re-spaced, newly balanced, mixed, bounced, compressed, amplified and possibly even sanctified for all I know.
It’s now ready for dispatch to anyone interested in elevating their immune system and warding off this nasty virus and any others.
Our team, working and meeting virtually, (but for one plucky rotating staffer, who shows up daily to mail out actual things that have mass and exist in real space - like CDs, Playaways, sleep masks and N.O.W. tone therapy peace pucks - wishes you well. Our new mantra/blessing?)
- May you be present.
- May you be kind.
- May you be well.
- May you be at peace.
And we’re committed to doing everything we can to help support those healing mind-states.
In the past few weeks, we've received a flood of questions about COVID-19 and what audios we recommend to help deal with the nerves and anxiety produced by this outbreak.
Morning sickness in the first trimester of pregnancy is pretty commonplace, typically showing up after 6 weeks, with the yuckiness peaking around week #9 and usually fading by week #12, at the end of the first trimester. It’s likely the result of a sudden rise in pregnancy hormone levels – estrogen and hCG, (human chorionic gonadotropin).
And although it’s no day at the beach to feel seasick for weeks, it’s nothing like Hyperemesis Gravidarum (HG), a truly nasty condition that affects maybe 1-2% of pregnant women. It means persistent, severe nausea and vomiting, so intense that it can lead to weight loss and dehydration. Some women have to be hospitalized so fluids can be replenished with an IV tube. And they feel unspeakably horrible.
