Happy Winter Solstice!
For years I’ve been preaching to patients and students that they need to chill out and relax around this time of year. The ones that listen, really thrive.
Why is that?
The holidays were traditionally about pulling people out of a funk. In the Western tradition, peoples of the Northern hemisphere would hunker down after the fall harvest and dig their heels in for a long, cold winter.

Scary stuff. Please share this video and spread the word as it may save a life.

Take just five minutes today – that’s right, just five! – for a better future for our nation’s food and farmers. The U.S. Senate is debating amendments to the Farm Bill this week. It’s a complicated and bureaucratic process, and predictably, all of the lobbyists for Monsanto and big agribusiness are out in full force.
But there is one simple action you can take today, that will have a big impact.
Call your Senator’s office and ask them to support key amendments that will make long overdue subsidy reforms and invest in local food and family [...]
