    Guest: Michelle Fondin author of The Wheel of Healing with Ayruveda

    in Relationships

    About the book:


    Ever wondered why you’re feeling out of balance, stressed-out, sick, and exhausted but still can’t sleep? Western medicine often ignores the underlying issues that can lead to fatigue, illness, and disease, but there is a way to revitalize your body and mind without drugs or dangerous side effects. Ayurveda, the “science of life,” is a complete wellness system that includes all that we associate with medical care — prevention of disease, observation, diagnosis, and treatment — as well as self-care practices that are generally absent from Western medicine. This truly holistic approach considers not just diet, exercise, and genetics but also relationships, life purpose, finances, environment, and past experiences. In this thorough and practical book, Michelle Fondin guides you gently through self-assessment questions designed to zero in on your needs and the best practices for addressing them, such as eating plans, addiction treatment, detoxification, and techniques for improving relationships. She outlines steps you can take, with minimal cost, to heal common ailments such as high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, excess weight, anxiety, and depression. These time-tested methods for body, mind, and spirit wellness offer benefits to anyone at any age.


    About the author:


    Author of The Wheel of Healing: An Easy Guide to an Ayurvedic Lifestyle and owner of The Ayurvedic Path Yoga and Wellness Studio since 2008, Michelle Fondin practices as an Ayurvedic Lifestyle Counselor, yoga and meditation teacher. She holds a Vedic Master certificate from the Chopra Center and has worked with Drs. Deepak Chopra and David Simon at Chopra Center events teaching yoga and meditation.

    10 Things You Can Do To Feel More Calm

    in Health

    I'm inspired to talk about this topic today because for the last few months I have been living in a way that has set me up to be very anxious and depressed right now! 


    But I know exactly what I was doing (and not doing) that has led me to feel this way. 


    It's a little more complicated for me because I've moved across the country and still feel like a foreigner in this new city. 


    But, no matter why you are feeling anxious or depressed, there are lifestyle tweaks you can make that help with every case of depression and anxiety. 


    So many of us are experiencing anxiety - anxiety over our careers, finances, relationships, health, life direction, etc.


    Am I making the right choice?


    Am I forgetting something?


    I don't like my job.


    I don't have enough money.


    Should I be more like them?


    Why aren't I as happy as I thought I would be?


    What's wrong with me?


    What should I do with my life?


    Etc.


    Being in a state of depression, anxiety and fight-or-flight is not a great place to be on a regular basis, for your health or your happiness.


    We want to spend more time with the parasympathetic nervous system, or the "feed and breed" mode.


    I have ten lifestyle habits for you to choose from that you can start doing on a regular basis. They will calm you down, get you into a happy place, and help you to see your life more clearly. You don't have to do everything - just a few - and you'll start feeling better very soon.

    in Religion

    BATTLING DEPRESSION- PART 2


    Effects on Personal Health and Self Esteem


    Sometimes, life seems to be full of surprises, some pleasant, some not so pleasant and those that snatch the joy right out of us, shatters our lives and leaves many stressed out, broken and bitter. When we find ourselves wrestling with the spirit of depression, it can take us to some very dark and hurtful places. Some seek comfort through withdrawal, alcohol or drugs, while others may go as far as contemplating suicide. Does the Bible give us any understanding on how to pick up the pieces and put ourselves back together? Is it possible to find closure and move on? Join us as we search the scriptures to discover the light of Jesus Christ that leads us out of the dark tunnel of depression.

    Nancy Virden

    in Lifestyle

    53 is the new 20 Nancy feels as if she's  at the cusp of her life rather than dragging toward the end. At the age of 49, she believed suicide was her only choice. Major depression turned into a suicide attempt, yet four years later she's not the same woman.  


    Therapy unveiled the world of emotions, taught it is ok to pursue self-care, and expressed one's personal value at any age. God used this time to retrain me and to adjust her worldview. 


     


    Nancy's purpose is to tell people they are valuable and life will be worth it again one day, in hopes they will hang on to her story even when they have no faith in their own.   In hopes they will hang on to my story even when they have no faith in their own.
