After reading the article: “Providing the Little Things that Mean the Most” published in the New York Times in 2002 about the Charlotte Maxwell Complementary Clinic (CMCC) in Oakland, I am not only more motivated to keep trying to get involved in the sector of integrative medicine professionally, but also shaken from a state of fear that was controlling me during the last week as my job search is not being successful. The CMCC offers free complementary and alternative healing treatments to low income women diagnosed with cancer and undergoing chemotherapy.

Here the link to the article: http://www.charlottemaxwell.org/docs/nytimeslo.pdf

For all of you who are healthy or have chronic conditions that are not life threatening, do your best to keep your health or improve it…our health is our engine…and please hug, kiss, caress, or laugh with a person who needs your good energy to be alive…these “little” things are the ones that mean the most.

Healing Life’s Traumas

I wanted to share with you a link to an article on the use of yoga for helping PTSD patients: http://www.yogajournal.com/health/2532

Many patients have benefitted a lot from practicing yoga. Here a woman’s powerful testimonial:

“There is no way to describe what it has done for me,” she says. More than 20 years of therapy had helped her continue to function in daily life and end self-destructive behaviors. “But I didn’t think I would find peace of mind,” she says, “and now I think I will.”

Our minds and bodies are much more interconnected than we think. We can’t focus on one part of ourselves without paying attention to the other. Holistic healing practices have a lot of potential for improving our health.

Good vibe to all


Quería compartir con ustedes un link a un artículo sobre el uso del yoga con pacientes que sufren estrés post traumático: http://www.yogajournal.com/health/2532

Varios pacientes se han beneficiado bastante con la práctica del yoga. Aquí el testimonio poderoso de una mujer:

“No hay manera de describir lo que ha hecho (el yoga) por mi” , ella dice. Más de 20 años de terapia la han ayudado a continuar funcionando en su vida diaria y finalizar conductas auto-destructivas. “Pero no pensé que podría encontrar tranquilidad mental,” ella dice, “y ahora creó que lo sí lo haré.”

Nuestras mentes y cuerpos están mucho más interconectados de lo que pensamos. No podemos enfocarnos en una parte de nosotros sin prestar atención a la otra. Las prácticas holísticas de sanación tienen mucho potencial para mejorar nuestra salud.

Buena vibra para todos
