Very, according to a recent study published in the journal Brain Research. Kids who are more physically active tend to have a better-developed brain, which in turn helps them perform better on memory tests. The study involved 49 children, ages 9 and 10, who ran on a treadmill to measure their oxygen intake, a standard measure of fitness. Subsequent MRI data of the chil- dren found that the more physically fit kids tended to have a larger hippocampus— about 12 percent bigger, relative to total brain size—than their out-of-shape peers Meditation Eases and outperformed them on relational memory tests. The hippocampus is known to be important in learning and memory.

Like all we do all summer is lie around the house in a lacy slip, high on honeysuckle fumes, drinking whiskey out of Mason jars and languidly uttering nonsensical aphorisms about magnolias, and pigs in mud, and dawgs which will not hunt, waiting for something to come along so we can either sleep with it or shoot it. I cannot speak for the entire region, but if I did that more than once a week, I would never get anything done. I do own a full slip and several of those funeral-home fans, but it puts me in a bad temper to exert that much energy to cool myself. Instead, thankfully, I have central air. However, I also have an old, energy-guzzling house, as well as a hot-blooded nature, so August leaves me especially ill-tempered when the electric bill comes roll- ing in. “Ill as a hornet” is an excellent old phrase of my grandmother’s. It suits August perfectly. August makes everyone ill as a hornet. That is why there is more crime then. (And I’m still not going to look it up. I’m right and you know I am.) Heat makes people mean. They get into more fights when it’s hot. You hear them tiredly say things like, “Come here so I can slap you. I’m too tired to move.” And then the other person says, in equally exhausted tones, “Never mind. Just shoot me. You can do that from right there. Put me out of my misery.” There are, I suppose, some good things about August. I grudgingly allow that I enjoy the lingering light that lasts well into the evening hours, fireflies and citronella can- dles at blue dusk. I do like the frequent rain, and the Perseid meteor showers are nice, if you like to sit up late and star-gaze. And of course there are the ripe tomatoes and fresh corn and juicy watermelons, the iced tea and lemonade, the pool parties and cookouts and beach trips. But you know what? I did those things in June and July, too. I’m all done now. Thanks. I didn’t need August for any of those things. August is extraneous. August doesn’t know when to quit. It has jumped the shark. I propose we do away with August altogether. I say we extend June by 16 days and July by 15, for 46 days per month, then go straight to September. I realize this means we would now celebrate Independence Day on June 34th, as well as my birthday on June 35th, but you know, that’s just the kind of person I am. Willing to reschedule my own birthday for the greater good. See what I’m will- ing to do for you all? For the good of the nation, the world, all the boys and girls and the fishes in the deep blue sea. And, if there were no August—joy to you and me. Melody Murphy has to go find her Mason jar now. She would quote a proverb about hornets and honeysuckle, but she’s too hot to be folksy. She can be contacted at email@example.com, but she will not feel like answering until September at the earliest. * excluding manicures/pedicures www.GoNaturalAwakenings.com August 2011 15 Pharma-Free KIDS Natural Alternatives to Common Medications by Lisa Marshall W ant to keep your kids off drugs?

There can be collapsing of the spine resulting in severe pain. These bacteria can attack most any part of the body. I call it the silent killer because of its insidious nature. I find it often in patients who have diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue. Because I have found laboratory tests do not always show Lymes when it is there, I have relied on Dr. L.J. Marx, MD’s training in neuro-kinesiol- ogy testing which I have found to be highly reliable if done correctly. The herbal formula and homeopathy have been very effective for those who meet the criteria. One of the remarkable recoveries was a 14-year-old girl who had been 28 Printed on recycled paper to protect the environment diagnosed as OCD. Her mother was desperate, as the girl was behaving insanely and missing 2-3 days of school each week. In my office, she tested positive for Lymes using neuro-kinesiology testing. Her mother and she could not believe it, so they had her blood tested. The doctor who did the test said she did not have Lymes because she tested positive to only one type of spirochete. She agreed to take the herbs for Lymes anyway. Shortly after starting them, she improved in all ways, including that she stopped cutting her wrist. She is volunteering at a summer camp as a counselor this summer with no sickness. Other things need to be addressed such as diet and stress-causing atti- tudes and traumas, which are stored in the tissues and block the healing. Again, herbs and homeopathy is a big key. I have had children as patients who were labeled autistic and became normal after this Lymes protocol was implemented. The list of symptoms Lymes can cause includes: Insomnia, depression, hyperactivity, muscle pains and loss of function, GI distress, car- diac symptoms, and many more. My favorite example of a patient who had a miraculous recovery is a 25-year-old man whose mother just about carried him in because he was so weak. He could not eat anything but coconuts. Within days, he was on the path to recovery when neuro-kine- siology testing showed he had Lyme disease. He’d had thousands of dollars’ worth of testing of blood and urine, with no significant findings. In a few weeks, he was completely well and is now working as a pianist, composer, and massage therapist. I would say it has become a spe- cialty for me, as I have found it to be what is necessary to get the results and has proven to be very effective for me and my patients.

According to the Weed Science Society of America (www. wssa.net), some weeds are becom- ing resistant to glyphosate, the herbicide found in products such as Roundup. Constant use builds resistance in the weed, just as insects will become immune to a pesti- cide. Once the herbicide becomes ineffective, weeds have the potential to invade and compete with crops. The WSSA recommends dealing with weeds the old-fashioned way: pull weeds by hand, use mulch or landscape fabric to keep weeds down, and rotate organic weed controls if additional maintenance is necessary.

They have sought help for all kinds of diseases and conditions that were not helped by traditional Western medicine, which is often characterized by surgery and narcotics. Lemire Clinic focuses on “functional natural medicine,” which does not rely only on invasive procedures or drugs. It combines modern science with ancient healing wisdom from different parts of the world, including traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). At Lemire Clinic, we combine various natural therapies with safe, proven medical treatment to help remove stress, reduce pain and anxiety, manage symptoms and promote well-being. Using these non-traditional pain management techniques and detoxification therapies, we can cleanse the body of chemical, heavy-metal and environmental toxins. We have successfully reduced pain and symptoms and improved the overall condition for many patients. • Physician Assisted Heavy Metal • Electrical Dermal Screening • Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy Detoxification • Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy • Colon Hydrotherapy • Bio-Identical Hormone • Prolotherapy • Microdermabrasion Patient Replacement Therapy • Far Infrared Sauna Therapy Information • Ionic Foot Bath Detoxification • Live Blood Analysis • Voice Mapping/Emotional Therapy • Occupational Therapy Clearing Technique Call for your free consultation today 1-352-291-9459 11115 SW 93rd Ct Rd, Suite 600, Ocala, Florida 34481 www.lemireclinic.com Mon, Wed, Thurs, Fri 8 – 5 Tuesday 9-6 Closed everyday from 12-1 40 Printed on recycled paper to protect the environment
