In this world beset by crisis, why a book about dogs?

First, this beautiful line in the Talmud, “Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world’s grief. Do justly, now. Love mercy, now. Walk humbly now. You are not obligated to complete the world, but neither are you free to abandon it.”
In other words, even in times of soul-wrenching crisis, we have a role to play; we need to be part of the solution. Even though we often feel powerless, we’re not.

Banish Cravings and Eat Abundantly

by Sussanna Czeranko, ND, BBE

When the New Year rolls around, resolutions old and new roll around too. Getting rid of sneaky pounds that somehow accumulated over the past year, for example, gets our attention again. Dieting, though, has a way of starting off well and ending badly. For some it is a merry go round from one diet to the next.

Many women today exist in a perpetual state of exhaustion, burnout, and anger. In fact, people of all genders struggle with unparalleled levels of stress these days. Most of us don’t even question why we’re so tired and crabby. We accept it as the price of admission in our modern and hectic world. Andrea Menard sees things differently.

I find that everything is speeding up more and more every day, month, and year. Others I speak to feel the same way.
