A boat called life
No one knows what it is like to walk in another person's shoes. Nor will we ever know the inside workings of an individual or a family.

Fun and funds raised for Amber
Ever been to a medical fundraiser with somber speeches and a lot of sad faces? Amber Alvarez Lara's recent fundraiser at Sisters Elementary School was exactly the opposite. Lively Mexican music filled the air while kids in bright costumes took to the stage. Dozens of families chatted and mingled, eating delicious food and waiting to see who might win the raffle.

Live until I die
"The afternoon of life is just as full of meaning as the morning; only, its meaning and purpose are different."

Confronting body shame
I always ask my clients to rate their self-esteem 0-10. The vast majority of my clients rate themselves below 5. If my client happens to be female, complaints about her body almost always dominate the list of why. Intellect, character, performance and achievement are often never mentioned.

The skinny on dietary fats
Dietary fat has a history of polarized paradigms. Whether it was the theory that saturated fats cause heart attacks, to the belief that fat reduces obesity and diabetes, the saga continues. In order to catch readers' eyes or to sell a book, people often extrapolate data and state an overarching assumption as fact, taking a simplistic and reductionist mindset to one end or another of the spectrum.

Creating love - one spoon at a time
Mike Bush didn't want to be a retiree with too much time on his hands. So he thought about things he always wanted to do but never had. He remembered being intrigued by the old guys in Western movies sitting on a front porch whittling. It looked like fun!

Beware of ticks in Sisters forests
Hikers are reporting an inordinate number of ticks on the loose as the spring hiking season begins to take shape. Since ticks can carry a number of diseases, including Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and Lyme Disease, it makes sense to learn how to avoid these obnoxious little critters.

Every bite matters
Food is a daily essential of our lives. We all make decisions about what to eat. These decisions implicate us in the real cost of that food - socially, environmentally, and economically. Not to mention that our choices impact our health slowly, for better or worse, with every bite.

Compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma
It seems empathy is in high demand these days. Helping professionals, healers, or simply those with caring personalities may feel overwhelmed and even exhausted trying to meet this demand. Having a caring heart and a tendency to put others ahead of ourselves makes us especially vulnerable to "compassion fatigue."

Curbing obesity with public policy
Obesity has shown no signs of slowing, and people are suffering from many different repercussions of a growing waistline. Countries like Mexico and China, which now are exposed to American eats, are seeing a rise in obesity rates at a rapid rate. What is going to stop this? Should the government step in to protect its people? Clearly people cannot protect themselves in a sea of snacks, highly delicious fast foods, and sugary beverages.

Cure tension headaches ... and fix everything else that ails and fails
Generally, tension headaches are caused by the static and prolonged contraction of the muscles in the head, jaw, neck and shoulders. Makes sense! We have statically contracted muscles - tension - in a tension headache.

Living with traumatic brain injury
Jenna Sneva comes home from classes at Oregon State University (OSU) to begin "repetition and redundancy" on that day's classes, two or more hours a day, before she is able to start homework assignments. This is the price she pays from experiencing traumatic brain injury.
