[AlternativeAnswers] Fantastic Fall: Harvesting A Healthy Autumn


Good Morning!

Fantastic Fall: Harvesting A Healthy Autumn!

As Fall is escorted in today, I will be taking the following week
to discuss many healing alternatives for the Autumn season.

The Autumnal Equinox occurs when the sun appears to move across the
equator from the Northern Celestial Hemisphere to the Southern
Celestial Hemisphere. The other point where the sun crosses the
Celestial Equator is the Vernal Equinox during Spring. As the sun is
on the Celestial Equator at the Autumnal Equinox, it has a
declination of 0°. The right ascension at the Vernal Equinox is 0 h.
Since the Autumnal Equinox is diametrically opposite to the Vernal
Equinox on the Celestial Sphere, the Autumnal Equinox lies at 12 h of
right ascension. You should then remember the equatorial coordinates
of the Autumnal Equinox as 0°, 12 h.

As an expression in nature, this is the time when crops are
harvested. Leaves are changing to brilliant colors as they float
gently to the ground. Gathering and elimination are the traits of
this season and can be seen in nature as well as human health.

Fall is good time to take a good look at our health and our
lifestyle. Start by looking at the life around you. Are you living in
chaos? Is your home in a shambles? Is there clutter everywhere? You
may want to consider starting with a good gathering and elimination
session. Feng Shui, the ancient art of placement, can help you to
find order in your life.

The temple, our physical bodies, are the only thing we have to carry
the soul. When our physical bodies are not in proper working order,
everything around us ultimately suffers. Our good health is all we
have that stands between us and the aging process. The longer you
keep your physical body in optimum health, the longer you have your
temple to keep your soul on this plane. Detoxification is the best
way to keep the body at its most ultimate working level.

By enjoying a healthy, nutritional diet, getting good quality sleep
and moderate exercise this can keep our physical form at it's best,
always. Take the opportunities that are offered. Make the
opportunities that are not. Find your priorities of life and give
them merit. This is the best season to do this. This is the time when
we have the greatest energy to utilize the power we are given!

Improve Your Health Right Now

Would you like to improve your health? Better your life? Be who you are suppose
to be? We sometimes stray from these very simple facts that can make our lives
the most fulfilled. Consider these ideas:

1. Visit your Alternative healthcare practitioner at least once a month.

Alternative medicine is one of the most comprehensive medical systems in the
world today. This medicine looks at the entire individual on a functional
systemic basis that integrates all components of our mental, visceral and
emotional bodies. See your local practitioner for preventative and maintaining
good health as well.

2. Eat Nutritionally Sound Food.

A balanced diet with the appropriate amounts of protein, carbohydrates, fats and
water is essential for sustaining a well fueled body which will allow you to do
everything in your life to it's greatest potential.

3. Exercise and Move Your Body.

Movement has been shown to ease depression, increase flexibility, keep muscles
toned and help us to gain better balance. Movement also increases endorphins.
The "happy" chemical in our brain that allows us to think clearer, function
optimally and feel great!

4. Get "good" sleep.

Everybody is different with the amount of sleep they need. The one thing that is
most important is not necessarily the quantity of sleep but the quality we get.
A sound night's sleep allows our entire body to regenerate, replenish and
rebound back into a day that is full of life and energy.

5. Welcome the Power of Nature.

"Going back to our roots" can also mean becoming in touch again with nature. The
power of the sea, sun, trees and plants have an energy they are willing to share
with us. All we have to do is pay attention!

6. Learn to Love!

Take the time to pay attention, appreciate and love the one you're with. Be them
friends, family or your partner, learn to love unconditionally and without

7. Strengthen your Support.

Your family and your friends are the ones who are there for you when you need
them the most. Take the time to listen to them, share stories, show appreciation
for what they do for you and what they do for people around them. Tell them. Let
them know you. Learn to love them for who they are, not what you want them to

8. Stay Spiritual.

Giving thanks to the Universe/Ultimate Power/Godhead is powerful. Religion is a
bridge to spirituality. You don't have to go to a church or synagogue in order
to be spiritual. Spirit is everywhere. Spirit is energy and it is in all things.
The best part is being aware of it.

9. Keep Growing and Laughing

Keeping the brain stimulated is one of the best ways we can fight off the signs
of aging. Stay curious, creative and learn something new about the world. It is
essential to keep maintaining a playful spirit and to keep the mind sharp! Find
laughter throughout the day. See things on the lighter side of life. I promise,
it will bring great joy.

10. Honor Who You Are.

You are the most powerful, successful and happiest. You deserve all that you
desire and should honor all that you are. Find the complete and satisfied soul
inside yourself. You are without a doubt, an amazing person. Take time to honor

Happy Fall!
