The replay of superfood and global nutrition expert David Wolfe on Healing With the Masters is available until later tonight.  If you are looking to understand the foods you eat and what you might like to add to your diet to fully experience health and aliveness, then listen to David’s presentation here:

The replay of Al Simon’s interview on Living Energy Secrets is online at:


Al  is a certified master in the energy arts of Tai Chi and Qigong. Al has been inducted into the United States Martial Arts Hall of Fame three times, as a Master and as a Founder, for his contributions to Tai Chi, Qigong, and martial arts. Al focuses on Tai Chi and Qigong for health, stress relief, and Chi life energy development.  Here are some of the highlights, as Al talked about the amazing benefits of Tai Chi, and the breakthroughs he has made in making it practical for everyone:

   * why Tai Chi is called meditation in motion

   * even people who feel fine are shocked at the improvement
     Tai Chi brings them

   * sometimes energy isn’t blocked; it’s simply stagnant
   * unless you engage in extreme amounts of physical activity,
     your energy is blocked and stagnant
   * by using Tai Chi a few minutes a day we can free our blocked
     and stagnant energy

   * why getting movement to our joints is profoundly important
     to health

   * most people are overwhelmed by the demands of
     Tai Chi, and quit before seeing improvement
   * Al’s creation, ChiFusion, simplifies Tai Chi and makes it
     accessible to all

   * only 10 minutes a day can radically improve your health
     and energy levels

 And finally, here’s a short article/list on…
7 Ways to Limit Your Family’s Exposure to Toxic Chemicals in Plastic
  • Limit the use of plastic food containers for serving or storing food. Use glass, paper and ceramic containers, especially for microwaving foods.
  • Never heat a plastic baby bottle in the microwave. And avoid heating food in any plastic container, even if it’s marked “microwave safe.” Studies have found that heating plastic containers increases the amount of BPA—and other chemicals—that leaches into food.
  • Memorize this rhyme: “5-4-1-2, all the rest are bad for you.” It’s a great little mnemonic helper. If you turn plastic bottles and food containers over, you’ll usually find a number on the bottom that indicates the type of plastic they’re made from. Plastic containers marked with 5, 4, 1 or 2 have little or no BPA. Toss items that have any number other than those four digits.
  • Go soft. If you can’t locate a number on the bottom of the container, opt for pliable containers. BPA is mostly found in rigid, shatterproof, reusable polycarbonate plastic—the kind used in some CD cases, baby bottles, water bottles and other hard plastic containers. Softer plastic containers usually contain less of the chemical.
  • Cut down on cans. Opt for more fresh and frozen foods and fewer canned foods. BPA is used in the plastic lining of many canned foods and beverages, including soup. It’s also used in soda cans, which is one more reason to drink soda sparingly. Paper containers for liquids are a better choice.
  • Use BPA-free pacifiers and baby bottles. More and more of both are on the market.
  • Finally…relax. When it comes to your baby or toddler, there are more important worries than hard plastics leaching microscopic amounts of chemicals into food. For starers, think about obesity, accidents, swallowing toy parts and flushing insurance documents down the toilet. Follow my tips, but don’t forget to focus on the big picture.

I am a 21 yr. old Victoria's Secret model with an IQ of 278 and was recently featured on the cover of a Fortune 500 magazine as the world's first bizillionaire.....:-) Oops! Guess that was in a past life. In THIS lifetime I am the author of two books, one on effective visioning and Self-awareness, and the other on detoxing the body and improving overall health. I've also spent some time dabbling in watercolors, putting together two websites (www.allonetogether.com and www.evolutionmadeeasier.com) on conscious living, writing two blogs (Evolution Made Easier and Self-help Health), and doing several types of energy work. Yadda, yadda, blah, blah. :-) Anyway, I love when I find some new teaching, inspirational quote, enlightening information, health-promoting protocol, or other resource that ends up having a positive impact on my life. And I really enjoy passing along my "finds" so that others might benefit from them as well. In fact, that's the main reason I created my websites and blogs. So I hope you enjoy and make use of the information, articles, videos and other resources I'm drawn to share. And may it all somehow support you in creating a happier, healthier, more abundant life for yourself and those you care about! Visit Zirah (B. L.)'s profile on Pinterest.
