Food Life

White Plums

Nowhere is the potential of food so fully revealed (I think) than in the bounties of Spring and Summer. I’m sure it’s no news to you that there are about twenty different ways we humans “should” be eating and it can get so distracting from what is really important.  We start seeing food only in … Continue reading …

: Grounded :

It’s so easy to feel trapped . . . in our bodies, in our minds, in our lives, in our perceived and real limitations. And it is so delicious and healing and necessary to find those wide expanses of healing space “beyond” us but actually inside us, snuggled up so close that sometimes it’s hard … Continue reading …

Other People’s Bizness

I don’t talk often enough about the women out there doing so much amazing work with bellies, abdomens, and beyond.  So, here is a post dedicated to other people’s work that has been inspiring my freaking socks off lately! http://lesliehowardyoga.com  Yoga specifically for the pelvic floor!!  Talk about “Why haven’t I known about her before … Continue reading …

Such a Relief!

I have been doing some touch-ups to the abdominal site and in the process of thinking about my “messaging,” I looked up the URL loveyourbelly.com. Usually when I do this kind of thing, I brace myself to see something porny or destructive or mildly-to-strongly demeaning. So, you can imagine my total relief and love and … Continue reading …

Most people like to feel that they understand that whatever they’re doing, that they’re doing it well. … Continue reading …

At long last!  I have finished with the new beautifulness and content on the abdominal website.  I will of course be adding new articles regularly and it’s so nice to have such a lovely home for them. For so long I have been the type of person that gets an idea for a project (see … Continue reading …

“Natural” Treatment for Abdominal Adhesions

For some reason this always cracks me up (and not always in the funny way, sometimes it’s in the Lady Macbeth wrenching of the hands way).  I think I’ve just been working with adhesions for so long it’s hard for me to understand the idea of using drugs or surgery to break up what is … Continue reading …

It’s Alive: E-Book on Abdominal Adhesions

My new ebook website for holistic books is alive . . . like, really alive!  I’ve been piecing this together for what seems like years – oh wait, it has been years – and now it’s (mostly) ready to go.  So exciting. Right now it’s just my one lonely, but fabulous, book about meditation: Because … Continue reading …

Yoga Duh

So, I’ve been doing mini-photo shoots as I’ve been updating abdominaladhesiontreatment.com.  Because I am such a firm believer that movement is one of the most essential parts of abdominal adhesion recovery, I am including some fun belly yoga pics on the site, one of which is elbow wheel  . . . The “Duh” part of … Continue reading …
