4 Ways to Heal Yourself from Within Healing yourself from within requires you to be conscious of the things you’re doing and what you’re putting into your body. It requires you to really think about the stress you’re experiencing rather than carrying it around with you, and to find ways to dissipate it. To heal yourself from within requires a holistic approach; several systems depend on one another within the body for balance and health. When you work to balance your mind and your body at the same time, you’re much more likely to experience better health and healing. The amazing thing is, by starting to tackle one area (for example, your diet), you end up benefiting other areas (your willingness to exercise, for example, or your mind as opposed to only your body).

The isolation tank was originally called the sensory deprivation tank.

Creamy Basil Sauce (with Kefir) - Recipe Redux - Fresh Food Perspectives This is my second month participating in the Recipe Redux - a network of blogging RD's that create a healthy recipe every month based on a challenge/theme. This month's challenge was to create a recipe using a fermented food (sauerkraut, miso, yogurt, preserved lemons, sourdough bread, etc.) Fermentation is an ancient process that has been found to actually increase the nutrient content of some foods. While I have not tried any fermenting of my own, I eat one particular fermented food daily - Kefir milk. Kefir is a cultured milk that is similar to a drinking yogurt in taste and texture.
