Sciatica: Top Ten Natural Ways to Ease the Pain

This past week I've been in training: an experiential intensive on Sciatic nerve pinching, otherwise known as Sciatica.It all started on a day that consisted of seven hours of continuous driving. Three days later, another six hours of driving. But truth be told, it started before that. It's a spot that, muscularly, has given me a history of irritations. As a former dancer, my piriformis muscle has seen better days. Problem is, I'm an overly busy (stubborn?) mother of two with more

Deities can manifest at any point in space

Recently, there has been a huge rivalry on social media between Clif and KIND granola bars makers on the topic of whose product is healthier. To get a sense of how big it went, take a look at their latest Twitter and Facebook posts and read the comment section.

In the book Zero to One, Peter Thiel asks readers to consider what views/truths they believe that very few people agree with them on. For me, one such belief is that most sunscreen is not helpful in avoiding skin cancer and may actually increase the chances of it!Sounds crazy? It’s definitely not a popular opinion, and I’m certainly not encouraging you to not wear sunscreen or to ignore the advice of your doctor. I am, however, encouraging you to do your own research, look at the actual
