Clinic/Class Updates

Below are the latest and greatest updates and reminders from Natural Life Therapy Clinic.

Every second Saturday of the month is a clinic day. The next Saturday both practitioners are available is Saturday July 10, 2010.

"Stress Arrest - Accessing the Quiet Within" will also take place on the second Saturday, July 10th, from 9:00am - 9:45am. Practice meditative calming techniques with breath and sound.

"Kototama Sound Meditation Class" is held every Tuesday evening from 6:00pm - 7:00pm.

A small, good will donation to the Institute of American Acupuncture and Life Medicine, a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization, is appreciated for the classes, but is not required.

The classes are open to everyone. Please join us and bring a friend or family member if you'd like.

That's all for updates. Now please read on for an interesting article summary on how brown rice can help fight heart disease.

"Brown Rice & Heart Disease" Brown rice has always been known to be a nutritious and medicinal food in Oriental Medicine, and recently, a new study at Temple University School of Medicine, showed that an ingredient in brown rice seems to combat a protein known as angiotensin II that contributes to high blood pressure and hardening of the arteries (artherosclerosis).

The ingredient is in a layer of rice that is stripped away when brown rice is converted into white rice. Traditionally in Japan, there are two types of rice, Kinme-mai (unmilled) and Haiga-mai (half- milled). Both types contain the ingredient that may help combat arterial health issues. A long or short grain brown rice, Basmati brown, and some types of wild rice naturally preserve this important ingredient.

Wishing you the very best health as the Summer begins.
