December 2007

December 2007 Five years ago this month, Natur-Tyme re-established itself in its current home on Bridge Street.The decision to move to a newer, larger location was the result of your desire for more goods that the Natural Products Industry had to Wendy Meyerson offer.You also asked for more education in the way of wellness counseling, support group meetings, and other lectures and presentations, now taking place in our Community Room.


5th Anniversary is wood ...

And we "wood"-n't be celebrating ours at our Bridge Street location without you!

For those newly acquainted with the Natur-Tyme family, please know that we plan to continue our legacy of education and information!

I am delighted to report that we have just begun! Looking forward to 2008, I am confident that this foundation which we continue to build upon, will become even stronger ­ you have my promise to stay the course! Yours in Health,

Stuffed in a stocking or as part of a grander package, don't we owe it to those we are gifting to provide them with the very cleanest and best? Unsoiling Soap: Synthetic vs. Natural Most mass-marketed soaps are not really soaps, but petroleum-based detergents, which understandably leave skin dry, itchy, and tight. Fortunately, most natural soaps are made from vegetable-based oils, such as olive, coconut, and palm, and do not contain potentially harmful chemicals. Handmade soaps contain glycerine, a clear liquid that absorbs water from the air--a key factor in keeping skin soft and healthy.Those who suffer from skin conditions, like eczema, or with sensitive skin often find immediate relief by switching to an all-natural chemical-free soap. Look for it on the label.Your skin will be glad you did. Clean Facts: · Your skin absorbs 60% of whatever you put on it. So keep things as natural as possible. · Antibacterial soap is not needed to kill a cold virus. In fact, frequent use may produce antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Washing your hands with regular natural soap is the single most effective way to reduce the spread of infectious disease.

Don't Let Cravings or Compulsions Sabotage Your Holidays or Your Life Part I of II

By Kat James, author of the soon-to-be released, fully updated and expanded best-seller, The Truth About Beauty

If you've been taking good care of yourself on the outside with all the right skin products and cosmetics, yet find yourself challenged by cravings, or worse, what I call compulsive self-sabotage, you're not alone.

that not only was I actually a very together, physically active 13-year-old when my compulsion developed, I also had amazing powers of will to have been able to starve myself despite these strong biochemical compulsions. I continuously overrode my body's innate survival commands (more on these brain signals in next month's Part II). In fact, it was the ease with which I could starve myself that all but guaranteed the development of the eating disorder that would be my undoing for the next 12 years. You Can Choose: Eternal "Control" or True Freedom

If it weren't for my health crisis, I would not have been forced to see or learn what true victory over compulsion is. Compulsive self-sabotage (which can switch into overdrive during the holidays) My life was a long string of false successes that kept my body touches ours as well as the lives of most everyone we know; quietly influencing at war with my impulses. Gratefully, that war is over. And it's split-second, seemingly benign everyday choices with impulses that repeatedly a war I know can be won. Unfortunately, most compulsion render us in opposition with our healthiest intentions.These impulses may victims suffer in the shame and self-blame game, unwittingly hover over us like an unassuming cloud, slowly dimming our beauty and reinforced by well-meaning fitness trainers and doctors.This quality of life--by choice, day by day, year by year, until that time we're diagnosed perpetuates the stubborn myths that 1) calorie and fat counting with a full-blown health condition, such as obesity, hypertension or diabetes. and excessive exercising; or 2) overriding your body via Suddenly ... you're a statistic. spirituality or willpower are the only ways to beat compulsion. But while emotional triggers may exist--to be addressed Over half of American women and over a quarter of men are now on a diet further in PART II--it is our brain chemistry that distorts 65% of our country is overweight; more than 33% are obese emotions and facilitates the drug-like mechanisms that leave Nearly two-thirds of Americans are estimated to be pre-diabetic us unstable and addicted, no matter how many emotional 23% of teens and adults binge drink alcohol at least once a month and spiritual breakthroughs we experience.

Conquering your chemistry (as opposed to white-knuckle abstinence) is the only way to How Cravings Become Compulsions achieve peace within your body and reclaim your emotions-- Compulsive self-sabotage can be as innocent as your morning coffee fix or as and your choices--as your own. serious as an uncontrollable food or drug addiction. Most people consciously or unconsciously use food, caffeine, alcohol, prescription drugs, or nicotine to Who knew that the St. John's Wart I took for my depression, or the L-Tyrosine I took to stoke my sluggish thyroid, or the energize, relax, or manage anxiety. For many, what starts out as a choice or entertainment becomes a need. And here's the insidious part: the more we N-acetyl Cysteine and fish oil I used for my liver and skin partake in our distracting food, drug, or drink of choice--ALL of would all one day be found to help correct the biochemistry that had enslaved me? which spike our "feel good" brain chemicals--the more we deplete those chemicals.

Look for Part II in next month's issue of Nutritional Insights. I first began to deprive myself of food at age 13 and was surprised by my Photo by Alana Cundy first binge. I did not plan it. It just happened. In response, I starved myself again to make up for it, and the pattern was established, leading to increasingly heroin-like binge responses. I only understood the chemistry a decade later! The truly awful lows between my fixes seemed to magnify every negative thought and make my body feel like a boulder and a black hole all at once. Soon I was deeply lost amid that eternal tug-of-war between epic willpower-- ® which I could sometimes manage for months at a time--and incapacitating binges. It got to the point that after starving, even the smallest amounts of food could "knock me out" with its drug-like effect (which I subconsciously had learned to manipulate and exploit over time). During those 12 dark years, I believed that my problem was caused by emotional turmoil and lack of WILLPOWER. I bought into the eat-less, move-more notions of health.
