Can Acupuncture Help Children?
While acupuncture is commonly associated with alternative health, it may not always be, or even very rarely be, associated with children. So can it actually help children and, more importantly, is it safe for children? It’s certainly becoming more common, as recent numbers showed 150,000 kids went through acupuncture treatment in the last five years.

Acupuncture can help stop that.”

New Year, New You: Cleanse Comparison
“For BluePrintCleanse, I eased into the cleanse with one day of Juice ‘Til Dinner, followed by the three-day Foundation Cleanse, and ended with an additional day of Juice ‘Til Dinner. If you don’t like green juice, don’t pick the Foundation — green juice is on the menu three times a day. Compared to the other cleanses, BPC lacked variety and was not as eco-friendly since the plastic bottles are not recycled. I also couldn’t help wondering how fresh the juice is since the last day’s juice sits in your fridge for three days instead of receiving a delivery daily.
Based on the nutritional information, you will consume around 1,200 calories a day, but a lot of those calories are sugar. That all being said, the Juice ‘Til Dinner is quite tasty. I tried the marinated kale salad, quinoa tabouli, collard wrap with lemon-herb crudite, and red bell pepper soup. However, my favorite parts of the day were — not surprisingly — the yummy chocolate and cinnamon mousses for ‘dessert’ and cashew and apricot ‘snack’ bars.”
Wellness, A to Y (the Z for Zen is Silent)
While there are certainly times when it can be difficult to define wellness, The Times, New York that is, has done just that for us.
In a fun and quick read Jesse McKinley of the Travel section at The New York Times has come up with a word or phrase for each letter of the alphabet that has to do with wellness. In a clever addition the “Z” has been made silent for Zen.
The trick here is each letter not only helps with your wellness but also suggests terms, attractions and techniques all across the realm of wellness that you can go and visit.
Turn Resolutions Into Reality
“This is the season for transformation and change in the form of New Year’s resolutions and each one of these examples is proof that you can successfully follow through on your new goals when the calendar flips.
New Year’s resolutions don’t have to be empty promises we make to ourselves and then feel guilty about a month later when we know we won’t come close to realizing them.”
The Toledo Blade has come up with a list of a few things that can help you stick to your resolutions and make you a better person in 2013.

Carl Alasko: First, Take Care Of Yourself
“It’s not easy predicting how a family visit’s going to turn out, but now you know what doesn’t work. Namely, hosting so many people pushed the limits of your ability to cope. (I think it would be beyond just about anyone’s ability.)
There’s a well-known concept that’s not used very often but can be extremely helpful in this situation. It’s called “self-care” and is defined as taking care of your core needs, your authentic long-term best interests. Which means saying “no” to all those things which do not advance your long-term best interests.”
Students Learn “Self Care” At Mesa’s Montessori International
There is never a lack of debate when the topic is if we are coddling our kids too much or not helping them out enough when they are young, developing and growing. There is one school that has firmly placed it’s flag on the side of letting the children develop heavily through self-learning.
From sewing (with a real needle) to self-care to polishing wood and silver, the children learn from a young age how to be independent. That training translates into independent learning for students as they move through the ranks at Montessori International School, which offers classes for those just walking through the eighth grade.
