1. Not sleeping through the night, which guarantees a stress-full day. 2. Taking medication to get to sleep – where a high percentage of people get addicted to the medication or have unpleasant side effects such as - being drowsy or tired all day. THE SOLUTION
The www.SoundPillow.com is like our bodies. If we eat foods filled with healthy nutrients, the food does wonderful things for our bodies. On the other hand if we eat foods that have little or no nutritional value, the food does very bad things to our bodies such has clog our arteries or start us down the diabetic track.
The “sound” that comes out of the Sound Pillow is as important as the “pillow” itself.
As an addiction counselor, one of the major challenges my new clients face is getting back into a normal sleeping pattern. One of my clients had a ten-year addiction to a drug her doctor prescribed to help her sleep. She was stressed out about staying awake all night. I gave her the Sound Pillow along with Prescription Audio’s – Nocturne - a sixty-minute symphony of sound and music that gently guides the brain to the deepest levels of relaxation. The next day she literally ran up to me when I arrived at work and told me that - for the first time in ten years - she not only had a sound nights sleep - without taking her sleep medication, but she also had a dream - the first time in many years.
I have worked with many alcoholics and addicts who were prescribed sleep medication upon being admitted for treatment, but came off the medication by using the Sound Pillow along with the Nocturne CD.
If an alcoholic or addict fails to perfect and enlarge their “spiritual life” through:
Work – Meditation, and prayer,
Self-sacrifice – Taking time to help others they will not survive the certain trials and low spots ahead. If we do not work, we will eventually relapse, and if we continue to relapse, we will eventually die from our disease, or wish we were dead. (A.A. Page-15)
Many of us are “loners.” We often carry this trait into our recovery program. We go to meetings. On occasion, we read recovery literature. We may even have daily phone conversations with other alcoholics or addicts.
What’s missing here? Accountability! When we’re loners, we are not accountable to anyone. How can we solve this problem? We can solve this problem by first of all becoming “accountable” to ourselves. It would help to have a
RELAPSE PREVENTION BAROMETER to help us keep track of the progress we are making in our recovery.
I’ll provide you with this over the next few days, but before going any further, let’s define character: WHAT IS CHARACTER?
The dictionary defines character as: “Moral or ethical strength; QUALITIES of honesty, integrity, or courage.
WHAT “QUALITIES” DOES IT TAKE TO BECOME AN “ADDICTION SURVIVOR?”
The same qualities it takes to win a Super Bowl, climb Mount Everest, start a business, get in good shape, etc.
1. Courage: The quality of mind or spirit that enables a person to face difficulty or pain without fear; bravery.
2. Commitment: To pledge, bind, or obligate one-self to achieve a goal; to burn the bridges of escape behind you.
3. Honesty: Freedom – from deceit or fraud, truthfulness, sincerity, or frankness.
4. Humility: Free from vanity, boastfulness, or grandiosity; not arrogant, a - realistic view - of one’s limitations.
5. Discipline: An exercise, regimen, or - series of steps - that improves one’s skill and control.
6. Fortitude: Strength of mind that enables one to endure temporary pain or adversity with courage.
7. Persistence: To persevere in spite of difficulty, discomfort, discouragement, or obstacles.
8. Forgiveness: The wisdom and courage to let go of anger or resentment toward oneself, or another; compassion.
9. Patience: Quietly and steadily persevering, bearing hardship, or discomfort with fortitude and calmness.
10. Altruism: Unselfish concern for the welfare of others.
11. Resilience: Springing back, rebounding; recovering from adversity.
12. Teamwork: Cooperative and coordinated effort with others to achieve a common goal.

She moved to Los Angeles in 1998 and was editor of a magazine for a nonprofit organization. Nancy is the Executive Editor of Central Recovery Press and has worked for CRP since June 2005. “As a person in long-term recovery, I can think of no better job than to work in a field for which I have so much passion while helping to educate others about the devastation of the disease of addiction and the hope recovery offers.

More info about Tails of Recovery: Addicts and the Pets That Love Them
Tails of Recovery: Addicts and the Pets That Love Them presents first-person accounts by people in recovery of the hope and healing that pets have provided to them. These stories are tied together with insightful commentary by author Nancy Schenck, herself a long-time pet lover and person in long-term recovery. Tails of Recovery is for anyone—in recovery or not—who wants to experience the deep and spiritual connectedness that the love of a pet provides to those in need.
In a recent review of Tails of Recovery, The Journal of Addictive Diseases hails the book as being “put together nicely, seasoned with personal anecdotes, photos, and short but factual articles on the many aspects of “pet therapy” and companions. Better yet, Schenck has clearly succeeded in transcending her grievous loss by putting together a brief but highly effective book that will help thousands of others who struggle with addiction, loneliness, and lovelessness. Those who work with drug-dependent individuals will find this a pleasant reminder that therapy and the road back to health sometimes includes unconditional love, such as freely offered by man’s (and woman’s) best friend.”
ACUPUNCTURE HELPS ADDICTS STICK TO RECOVERY People trying to move away from addictions to drugs and alcohol face a very difficult task. However, by adding Acupuncture to detoxification treatment, many are learning that it is easier to stick with their program and find the successful road out. One such success came out of a one-year study conducted in Portland, Oregon, where individuals received Acupuncture as part of their recovery. In that program, people who received Acupuncture detoxification treatment were two times more likely to continue their rehabilitation therapy than those not getting it. In this same study, more than 70% of people treated with Acupuncture successfully completed detoxification, compared with only 50% of those who did not receive the treatment. For those detoxifying from alcohol only, the success rate was 90%. Recidivism (tendency to relapse) was reduced to only 5%. A similar blind study of chronic alcoholics in Hennepin County, Minnesota had far better results among the Acupuncture group. Here, 37% of the treatment group receiving Acupuncture completed the program while only 7.4% of the control group made it. One person who received Acupuncture as part of his recovery program had this to report: “I have enjoyed what I believe to be reasonable success after 21 sessions within a four-week period with a weekly follow-up of one session per week ever since. My alcoholic compulsion is markedly reduced with the side benefit of elevated vigor and more energy from day to day. “I literally do not have the compulsion or craving. An occasional thought of drinking passes by with no pangs or lingering thoughts. I’ve read about a doctor who said that the only necessary proof of Acupuncture’s worth was the very fact that it worked. Period. It just works.” Source: http://www.acupuncture.com/research/detox.htm;http://www.acupuncture.com/testimonials/alcohol1.htm Dr. Jack Tobol Acupuncture Wellness Center of Coral Springs Phone: 954.755.1292 Fax: 954.755.4029 firstname.lastname@example.org http://wellnesscoralsprings.com

"When a brain becomes balanced and harmonized, it reaches a place of homeostasis, of operating under and with a certain grade or level of potency and potential that it did not have previously.
"I do know this, when there is the balance and harmony and the homeostasis does take place, many pathologies we have seen have actually ceased or have been greatly reduced.
"Many pathologies that we have seen people walk in the door with, when they balanced and harmonized their brain patterns, those pathologies seem to lessen greatly or be completely removed."

Strange sound in your head? Maybe it sounds like a ringing, buzzing, whirring or worse? You are NOT crazy and you are NOT alone. It is call Tinnitus. According to the American Tinnitus Association, more than 50 Million people experience Tinnitus, to some degree, every day. And 12 Million people are actively seeking help for their Tinnitus.
There is no cure, but there is help. Many people report that masking their Tinnitus, by listening to exterior sounds that “cover up” the sound created by their Tinnitus, is a great help. Especially at night, when there are far less ambient sounds to cover up the sounds in their head. A great tool for masking Tinnitus, especially at night, is by using a Sound Pillow.
The Sound Pillow is a comfortable plush pillow with two stereo-speakers buried deep inside the pillow that allows you to comfortably listen to your favorite music, meditation CDs, and nature sounds. Simply plug the Sound Pillow into any standard 1/8” headphone jack, layback, relax and let the sounds flowing from the Sound Pillow put you to sleep.

Sometimes in our everyday lives, people find it difficult to see happiness or to crack a smile. They may ask, “How can I be happy when my life is falling apart?” Life doesn’t actually fall apart but it can change. The “falling apart” we feel is only a change or a vibration that is different from what you are used to. Change is not a bad thing. It’s important not to dwell on thinking about the whole picture and only look at what you can do today, or even tomorrow. We can dream and we can make long term plans but it we have to realize we cannot change anything or anybody except US.
How do we find happiness? Does it come in a flat screen TV? A vacation? A new car? No. Happiness is not bought, it is something that we have nurtured in our souls and in our heart since we were born. Happiness is when we can smile at just being in our own company. When we finally befriend our true self, we begin to smile more and more because we realize we are NEVER alone as long as we have our self.
Happiness is found in true love, true self, and even laughter among friends and family. Ask yourself this, what would make you happiest – a new car or the embrace of a loved one or a mirthful laugh among friends?
A new car may smell good and make you feel good but it is only a fleeting moment. That new car won’t be new forever and it won’t smell new forever. That newness will wear out. The feeling of love with yourself, friends, and family is a feeling that will enrich your soul and will be kept inside you forever. Search within yourself, don’t search and find things from outside of yourself.
With such a dynamic metaphysical energy shift currently taking place throughout the world, many are left feeling uncertain about their present circumstances and future positions both personally and spiritually.

Most commonly asked question:”How do they do it?”

This allows them to “tune” into your current or past situation, see how you got there, and uncover what your future options are. Your Spiritual Intuitive will look at all issues pros and cons connected to your question giving them an in-depth picture of your addressing issue. You will receive the clarity, advice and guidance you have been searching for to get your power and peace of mind back.
Genetically modified foods is a hot topic and also controversial. Some people are on the fence about it. Some are strongly for it and others are strongly against it. Those in favor of GMO’s think that it will help food shortages and end hunger. It’s a good intention, but it’s not natural. It’s genetically modified and altered. It may be no healthier than milk with hormones and antibiotics. When we see the fruits and vegetables that may just be a bit larger than usual, don’t buy it. Have we ever seen a strawberry three times its size twenty years ago? Again, the idea of GMO’s is all about money and getting more for the dollar. It is not necessarily looking out for our best interests. Everything that is done nowadays is always about money and how to get more for a cheaper price. Ever hear the saying, “You get what you pay for?” It may be great to buy genetically modified food, but think about how it will affect us later on – and at that time, it won’t be so cheap! Paying a little more out of pocket now may save you some money later. Do you want to be the guinea pig for all the chemicals they are putting in our foods? Not me, not now. Keep it simple and go Organic.

Addiction Recovery Talk - Actor Corey Haim, 38, is dead after an accidental drug overdose. A spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Coroner confirmed that Haim, who battled substance addiction for several years, was found unresponsive in an Oakwood apartment and pronounced dead at Providence St. Joseph’s Medical Center at 2:15 a.m. this morning. His mother, according to FOX station KTLA, was in the apartment at the time.
Another Actor Lost to Drugs Actor Corey Haim died this morning of an apparent drug overdose. Many who grew up during the 80’s remember him well from numerous roles in films then, and he was recently reunited on the small screen with actor and friend Corey Feldman in “The Two Coreys.” Haim had a troubled past with substance abuse and all that comes with it – sliding career, financial difficulties and trouble with the law. He is the latest casualty in a string of celebrity deaths that have been linked to drugs in one way or another. Yet with all the glorification of alcohol and drug abuse portrayed in Hollywood, especially on MTV and VH1 reality shows, maybe common sense might prevail and not continue to show so much partying since these channels influence our nation’s teenagers to a great degree. Even Joey from MTV’s “The Real World Hollywood” wound up spinning his substance abuse from a violent tirade into a paid gig on “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew”, where he was depicted as making a joke of his drug use before entering treatment yet again. I think it’s about time that some shows shed light on the reality of substance abuse without the glamorization of partying. Obviously not everyone winds up dead like Corey Haim when they become addicted to drugs, but most will end up in prison or die if they do not seek effective help.

It was a news articles that went too largely unnoticed and it blew the whistle on one of the great non-secret secrets of modern medicine and psychiatry: The benefit of antidepressants “is hardly more than what patients get when they… a placebo.”
The cover story of the February 8, 2010 edition of Newsweek magazine was written by Sharon Begley with Sarah Kliff and cites a number of major research reports dating back to the 1950s. Most impressively, Begley and Sliff examine several meta-analysis studies – reviews of the results of large numbers of studies with large numbers of participants, including company-sponsored research projects used to gain FDA approval of new meds. In the final analysis it appears that that “antidepressants are a little more effective than dummy pills” – 1.8 points on the 54-point scale doctors use to gauge the severity of depression.
Begley and Kliff cite study after study to promote the value of the placebo – and, ultimately, the patient’s confidence in his or her prescribing physician.
Begley is the author of Train Your Brain, Change Your Mind, an outstanding introduction to the concept of neuroplasticity, the ability of the brain to grow new neurons (brain cells) and rewire itself, which scientists once believed was impossible. The highly readable (even for the non-scientist) Train/Change was based on the 2004 meeting of the Mind and Life Institute, prepared by some of the world’s leading researchers to introduce new concepts in science for the Dalai Lama.
To be fair, Newsweek also presents the pro-antidepressant position of Robert Klitzman, a psychiatrist, the author of When Doctors Become Patients, and director of the Master’s of Bioethics program at Columbia University.

No, it’s not a new fad to empty your wallet. Willard Water™ has been around for nearly half a century and has been the focus of many scientific studies. The results of these studies even piqued the interest of top CBS news program, 60 Minutes. That interview 30 years ago exposed the potential health benefits of Willard Water™ to the world. So, what is Willard Water™ exactly? Without getting too technical, Willard Water™ acts as a vehicle to transfer nutrients to your body’s cells and remove wastes and toxins from those same cells. Also known as Structured Water, Catalyst Altered Water and Lignite Activated Water, Willard Water™ alters the molecular structure of normal water causing it to become more reactive and more efficient. It acts as a “normalize” which optimizes the conditions necessary for the body to heal itself without interference or artificial stimulation—in laymen’s terms: It enhances the good and reduces the bad stuff in your body. Willard Water™ users have seen improvements in their overall health when used (it can be ingested or used topically) regularly.

March 1st John Hollis Interviews John W. Willard The 3rd About The 30 Year History Of Willard Water. Dr.John W. Willard, Ph.D, invented Catalyst Altered Water (CAW) in the late 1960s and re-named his product “Willard Water®” shortly after 60 Minutes aired a detailed story on Dr. Willard and his invention in 1980. Willard Water® is many things to many people, and is used in a variety of ways. What seems to be the common denominator is that Dr. Willard’s Water® is a more efficient form of water. Technically, the molecular structure of H2O is altered by a catalyst. As a result, the Catalyst Altered Water (CAW) acts as a normalizer on all living things not in a healthy state. When consumed regularly, Dr. Willard’s Water® can help assimilate nutrients more efficiently, increase enzyme activity and strengthen the immune system. The following pages will explain in detail how Dr. Willard’s Water® actually works and the amazing story of its discovery.
If you have any questions or comments about Willard Water® or if you have a unique story to tell us about using our product, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you! www.dr-willardswater.com/index.html
