Through the center he has trained thousands of health professionals around the world to apply Deep Relaxation, Meditation, Guided Imagery, and other person-centered approaches to deal with post traumatic stress during the acute phase – in trouble spots like Kosovo and Haiti, and with traumatized US veterans.  In this show we will explore the value of imagery for adjusting autonomic responses, as well as the immune and endocrine systems, and discuss the seven phases of depression, why it is better to not think of depression as a disease, but the start of an important life journey.

Show #20 – Coming Soon…


Dr. Rossman Image Our guest this month is Professor Martin Rossman, whose work has paralleled mine for several decades, during which time we have been colleagues and friends.

There seems to be so much to worry about these days – from global warming and peak oil to our children’s schools, our jobs, and even whether the food we eat has been contaminated – it seems impossible to predict what will come next.

If you’re one of the people who worries about any of the concerns I just mentioned – or about your teenage kid, your job, your health, or what those people in Washington some folks call “idiots” are going to do next – then this is a show you would definitely be interested in.

Listen to the Rebroadcast May 19, 2011 12-1pm at .

Did you know that there’s good worry and bad worry?

Apparently nature has wired us to worry, and so Dr. Rossman explains in his book, The Worry Solution, that it’s futile to try to stop. The good news is that worry itself is a neutral function of our imagination — a reflection of the brain’s ability to look at a problem from many different angles and to identify different pieces of the puzzle. In this interview Dr. Rossman will share the difference between good worry and bad worry, and tell us how to use worry effectively, that is how to worry well!

You will learn the value of having an inner pow-wow, the importance of utilizing a different state of mind to make worry more efficient and less wasteful, and how to use affirmations to put energy behind your choices among several options. We’ll talk about image rehearsal and the use of positive emotion and visualization for success.
We’ll also explore the nature of “bad worry” and learn some of the ways we can free ourselves from it. Dr. Rossman is a wise and careful doctor and with a lot to teach us all.

Dr. Rossman, a pioneer in mind-body medicine, is the founder of The Healing Mind, the co-founder of the Academy for Guided Imagery, a Clinical Faculty member at the University of California San Francisco Medical School, and an advisory board member of Dr. Andrew Weil’s Integrative Medicine Program at the University of Arizona. Dr. Rossman’s cutting-edge research in guided imagery has contributed to the current paradigm of holistic health and has influenced the work of many of its prominent leaders, including Drs. Weil, Dean Ornish, and Rachel Remen.

Dr. Rossman has authored numerous books and CDs, including Guided Imagery for Self-Healing and Fighting Cancer from Within, and his work has been featured in academic, trade, and popular national media outlets including O, Self, Body & Soul, and CNN. The Worry Solution (Crown Archetype Books, Dec 2010) is Dr. Rossman’s latest ground-breaking contribution to the field of preventative medicine. It teaches readers how to capitalize on the powerful mental force behind worry – utilizing the imagination to facilitate positive growth, change, and healing, instead of letting it run us into the ground with debilitating stress, anxiety, and disease.

About The Worry Solution:
Nature has wired us to worry, Dr. Rossman explains in The Worry Solution, so it’s futile to try to stop. The good news is that worry itself is a neutral function of our imagination — a reflection of the brain’s ability to look at a problem from many different angles and to identify and tease apart the different pieces of a puzzle. What makes worry negative or positive, Dr. Rossman explains, is the way we use it. Unproductive worry sets us off on a mental hamster wheel of obsessive thoughts — effectively triggering the stress response that is behind a slew of chronic and/or life-threatening illnesses, from fibromyalgia to obesity to heart disease. Productive worry, to the contrary, helps us solve problems, prevent disease, and achieve peace of mind.

The Worry Solution offers not only helpful information but also its practical application — providing readers with numerous hands-on, easy-to-use guided imagery techniques that can be done in the comfort of one’s own home. For those who prefer audio exercises, the guided imagery methods outlined in the book are also available on CDs or audio downloads that can be purchased on The Worry Solution website . Scientific research has demonstrated that these kind of simple, 15-minute guided imagery exercises can reduce anxiety by nearly 90%. As such, The Worry Solution is not just a book about preventative medicine. It is preventative medicine — a manifestation of the holistic, “more skills, less pills” approach to health care.

Help! I’m Stuck in a Tsunami Blonde Joke

Oh, No, Not Again!

March and April found us back again, sitting shocked, amazed, spellbound, and powerless in front of our TV screens – watching as hundreds of thousands flee their homes and the steaming nuclear reactors.b

Dumbfounded we stared, as crews carried out the Hail Mary procedure of squirting sea water on the nuclear core to try to slow its progress towards a meltdown and the potential contamination of millions of locals, not to the billions across the ocean those of us across the ocean. Then the terrible stories of those who lost everything nightly across our TV screens.

And here I am, having that eerie feeling, hearing that spooky voice that keeps repeating, “It’s happening again, its happening again . . .”

The Art of Helplessly Looking On

Back in September of 2001 we all were glued to our television sets impotently watching the World Trade Center’s Twin Towers burn and collapse to the ground and New Yorkers running from a giant ball of debris growing as it overtook lower Manhattan.

It wasn’t long afterward that we watched as corruption and greed led to the demise of Enron, Arthur Anderson, Countrywide, Jack Abramoff, AIG, and so on – the predictable result of behaviors that were not only dishonest, but criminal. But what could we do?

Then we looked on helplessly as the stock market plummeted toward the abyss created by credit default swaps, ushering in the near total collapse of the global credit markets, and following close on its heels, the boggle boggling multibazillion dollar bailouts and the pain of the so-called “Recession of 2008.”

And here we are now, well into 2011, feeling that feeling of despair as we tune in to the news of millions of hard-working Americans having lost their jobs and homes to the recession. And again we felt helpless. Here’s an interesting little video – Bill Moyers’ take on how all that went down: The epidemic fraud in the Economic Meltdown Video .

Well, we made it through the Almost A Nuclear Meltdown scare, but folks in my neck of the woods are pretty freaked about the radioactive particles wafting our way. What’s next?

Stuck In a Dumb Blonde Joke

Somehow I have the feeling I am stuck in one of those “dumb blonde” jokes:

The Wager

Bob walks into a sports bar around 9:58 pm. He sits down next to a blonde at the bar staring up at the TV. The 10 pm news comes on, and the news crew covering the story of a man on the ledge of a large building preparing to jump.

The blonde looks at Bob and says, “Do you think he’ll jump?”

Bob says, “You know, I bet he’ll jump.”

The blonde replies, “Well, I bet he won’t.”

Bob places a $20 bill on the bar and says, “You’re on!”

Then, just as the blonde places her money on the bar, the guy on the ledge does a swan dive off the building, falling to his death. The blonde is very upset, but willingly hands her $20 to Bob, saying, “Fair’s fair. Here’s your money.”

Bob replies sheepishly, “I have to confess, I cheated. I saw this earlier on the 5 pm news, and so I knew he would jump.”

The blonde replies, “I did too, but didn’t think he’d do it again.”

Bob took the money…

Blonde Like Me

How like that blonde we are – being surprised to see the same thing happening again and again, but unable to see that all these shocking events are really the result of a single underlying process at work in our global culture. I believe that until we really confront the real issues and begin to think systemically and examine the root patterns at work here, we are likely to continue to see this parade of tragedies. .

I don’t know what is coming next, but it’s bound to be a doozy. Hang on to your seats, folks!

The Cure for Blondeness

Fortunately this kind of blondeness is curable.

To me, the recent events in the Middle East demonstrate the power we can all have over our lives. I believe technology is a key part of using that power. As we learn to communicate better, the we awaken the intelligence and wisdom we need to free ourselves. We are entering the era of global community now, where time never sleeps and unfathomable amounts of information are at our fingertips.

The time for collaboration around Things That Matter has come. Connecting in a meaningful way with others is best in person. Second best, the information highway is running an ever-closer second. The internet provides an excellent medium for making meaningful connections, and a number of people and organizations have created some excellent centers for connecting and collaborating. I will suggest a few that I think might well help you shift to a mode of thinking that can enable a deeper understanding of what’s going on and offer some very reasonable actions you can take to help change this.

The change we want can come amazingly quickly. As our communication technologies mature, I can see the same vision as Clay Shirky,( consultant, teacher, and writer on the social and economic effects of Internet technologies), alludes to in this fascinating video – why we are on the brink of change, if we will recognize and use it.

The recent peaceful revolts in Tunisia and Egypt demonstrate how effectively cell phones, Facebook, and Twitter can empower even people who live in these relatively deprived and primitive conditions.

I believe there are enough of us who want to change and that we already possess the collective intelligence and wisdom that can set us free. All that is necessary is for us to begin to play our part in the conversation . . . What are we waiting for?

Healing Through Gardening

One excellent way to “Think Globally, Act Locally” is through the remarkable benefits to you and your community of a few hours a week gardening. I will get to the gardening, but first, with your permission, a little story.

A few days ago, returning from San Miguel de Allende, I paused at one of the magazine stands in the airport. It seemed other cover story complained of the sad state of our planet. But few offered any suggestions as to what we could do about it other than enjoy the royal wedding. I think that we actually can do something about it.

If we truly wish to survive the global collapse that has already begun, we must, as Gandhi said, think globally, act locally.

In my most recent book , I explored the various symptoms we see throughout our culture, and how the prognosis is dire indeed – unless we choose to change. The truth of my main points is even more obvious now: we must recognize on an individual, as well as a national and culture-wide basis, that we need to connect not only with people locally but also with our local environment , and realize we are all in this together.

How To Think Globally

Thinking globally quickly reveals to us that — if we wish to sustain any semblance of our accustomed lifestyles — we must put real energy into creating local community (in addition to the distributed communities we are developing online). That includes establishing a different relationship to our local environment. One thing we can do is to begin buying locally and eating locally – as the “New World Order” collapses we will have to depend our local support system – the big corporations won’t be here to support us, but our local farmers will, if they have not gone out of business

Acting Locally

One of the most valuable ways to do this is to grow your own garden.

During the two World Wars of the last century, we acted locally by growing so-called “Victory Gardens” or “War Gardens.” These gardens helped significantly, providing sustenance for millions by reducing pressure on the public food supply that was brought on by the global war effort. Perhaps our gardens can save us again.

An important step in the Treatment Plan to make things better globally would be for more of us to start growing a garden locally. Now.

Why? I’m glad you asked.

One reason might be the fact that so many more people are doing it, and that the global food price index at an all-time high – and going up, and there are food riots throughout the world. In 2009, 38 percent of the people in the U.S. (41 million households) planted a vegetable garden. An American Gardening Association survey showed a 19 percent increase from 2008 to 2009 in new hobby country farms and urban edible gardens.

Why Grow A Garden?

My Garden

The main reason most people gave for increasing or maintaining edible gardening last year was to supplement household food supply — to help save money on food. And if “locally grown” is important to you, there is nothing more local than food grown in your own backyards, windowsills, or patio containers.

Furthermore, if eating in a healthy and organic way is important to you, growing your own fruits and vegetables means that you know exactly what does and does not go into your food and exactly where it comes from.

Growing your own will make you healthier because not only will you eat more fruits and vegetables (let’s face it, few of us eat as many of these as we should), you will be getting the best kind of exercise, the green kind. Studies show that in 45 minutes of gardening, you can burn as many calories as in 30 minutes of aerobics.

What’s more, diverting your mind to the nurturing of life reduces stress and will make you more creative when you do go back the challenges in your life.

And if you have kids or grand kids, you have a green opportunity to help them make the fascinating discovery that their food actually does not come from the supermarket but from Mother Earth. What better way for them to learn how important it is to protect her?

Even if you are in a city, you can build a raised garden bed and get your garden started!

You Are What You Eat . . . And Think: A Conversation with Terry and Joe Graedon (of The People’s Pharmacy)

People's Pharmacy on HealingTimesRadio.com Listen to our conversation at the end of this post!

If you’re interested in maintaining your health and preventing illness, then you owe it to yourself to check out the work of Joe and Terry Graedon. Joe was trained as a pharmacologist at the University of Michigan, Theresa’s PhD is in Anthropology.

Joe and Terry published their first book, People’s Pharmacy, in 1976, with a vision of providing people with high quality information for personal health and natural wellness. Through their books, their regular radio show and their many appearances on national television, they have managed to stay on the cutting edge even until now, with their current new release, Recipes and Remedies, which presents some most fascinating and useful information about ways you can treat common ailments and prevent serious illnesses through the use of common foods, spices, and other items you can find around the house.

The famous physician, Hippocrates, is reported to have proclaimed, “Let food be your medicine.” Joe and Terry have taken this to heart. In this Healing Times conversation, we will get to know this colorful couple, and learn a few of their tips.

For instance, did you know that some of the most troubling symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome can be treated with, of all things, coconut macaroon cookies?

In this conversation, we take a look at some of our new learnings about food – that food really can be our medicine – and the use of food as medicine is being avidly studied by institutions of the stature of Harvard and Stanford.

In this illuminating conversation we will also explore:

  • How you can treat Type II diabetes with a vinegar dressing on your salad.
  • How a blueberry cheesecake that can help you heal chronic disease
  • The latest news about vitamin D
  • How to use vinegar at the end of a meal as a treatment for Type II diabetes

The Graedons agree that – “you are what you eat and what you think.” As an example, we will discuss the latest on depression, now that clinical studies have shown that perhaps the vast majority of the $10 billion a year we spend on antidepressant medications is wasted on mild to moderate depressions . We will talk about a number of non-drug approaches you can use, and especially about some of the foods you can eat to help you Escape From Depression .

In 1976, when The People’s Pharmacy® was originally published, it was one of the first books providing drug and health information to consumers. It went on to become a number one bestseller. Since then, Joe and Terry Graedon have gone on to write 14 additional books, one of which was a medical thriller co-authored with Tom Ferguson, MD (No Deadly Drug, Pocket Books, 1992). In addition, they write The People’s Pharmacy® syndicated newspaper column, distributed by King Features®, co-host an award-winning health talk show on public radio, and speak frequently on health issues.  Learn more about the People’s Pharmacy and how it started, and listen to our conversation below!
