What's Your Defense?

The cool crisp air, falling leaves, and pumpkin-spice lattes are a welcome change after a blistering summer. Unfortunately, with the changing season also come annoying sniffles, painful coughs, and miserable body aches; however, we are not completely defenseless. The immune system is a remarkably complex network of cells, tissues, and organs with the common goal of fighting off “foreign invaders.”

Yoga Offers Insomnia Relief for Post Menopausal Women
www.yogauonline.com

Insomnia affects more 70 million Americans, according to the U.S. Center for Disease Control, a enough to qualify insomnia as a public epidemic. The majority of those affected are women; insomnia in particular becomes increasingly common as women enter menopause. 

If you’re one of the millions unsuccessfully counting sleep each night, you might try a new approach to get that peaceful slumber: Yoga.  According to a study published earlier this year in the journal Menopause, practicing yoga asana before bed may help not just improve insomnia, but also reduce the severity of menopausal symptoms and increase overall quality of life.

Prenatal Yoga
By
 

Gone are the days when pregnancy meant becoming a couch potato.  Today, many doctors and health professionals are encouraging women to work out throughout their pregnancy.  

But what exercises are safe?  One form of exercise that is favored by some medical experts and some of Hollywood’s newest moms (think, January Jones, Hilary Duff and Pink) is prenatal yoga.  

“Yoga during pregnancy helps a woman increase her strength and flexibility, even as her body goes through the dramatic changes of pregnancy” says Mary Barnes, director and owner at Yoga for Two in New York.  The postures yoga offers may also prepare women for childbirth and help relieve discomforts, such as back pain and swollen ankles.

Spicy Broccoli with Pine Nuts
www.drweil.com

 

 

Garlic and broccoli seem to go hand in hand, one flavor beautifully complimenting the other. A light soy dressing and toasted pine nuts round out this savory dish. Opinions vary as to whether broccoli is neutral or cooling. It is often prescribed by Chinese doctors for eye inflammations and nearsightedness.

Ingredients

1 ½ pounds broccoli or broccoli rabe
¼ cup pine nuts
1 ½ teaspoons (expeller-pressed) canola oil
1 ½ teaspoons roasted sesame oil
1 teaspoon hot chile paste or ¾ teaspoon crushed dried chiles
2 tablespoons minced garlic
2 ½ tablespoons rice wine or sake, mixed with 2 tablespoons water

Sauce (mixed together in a bowl until the sugar is dissolved):
1 ½ tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon sugar

 

Directions

1. Trim the ends of the broccoli, separate the florets, peel the outer skin of the stem and cut it on the diagonal into 1-inch lengths.

2. Toast the pine nuts until golden in a 300°oven, turning them occasionally so that they cook evenly for about 20 minutes.

3. Heat a wok or large skillet, add the oils, and heat until hot, about 20 seconds. Add the chile paste or crushed chiles and garlic, and stir-fry, tossing with a slotted spoon over medium heat until fragrant, about 15 seconds. Turn the heat to high.

4. Add the stem sections of the broccoli and stir-fry. Pour in the rice wine and water and cook, tossing, about 30 seconds, then cover and cook about 1½ to 2 minutes, until the stems are just tender. Add the florets or leafy sections and toss over high heat, cooking for about 1½ minutes or until just tender.

5. Add the premixed Sauce and toss lightly for 15 seconds. Add the toasted pine nuts and stir-fry a few seconds to combine the ingredients. Scoop the ingredients into a serving bowl and serve immediately.

Quote of the Month:

People travel to wonder at the heights of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars; and they pass by themselves without wondering.

- St Augustine
