KAREN TRIBE The tradition of neck stretching is seen most prominently in the Karen tribe found in Northern Thailand. This has been a tradition passed on for many many years and there are still several women who participate to uphold their heritage. There are many ideas regarding why the heavy rings, which are actually one solid piece, are worn by the women. Some theories suggest they begin wearing them out of desire to look more attractive by exaggerating their necks. Other ideas suggest the coils were meant to protect women from tiger bites. In modern day, less young women are participating in the neck lengthening practice. CHUMASH TRIBE For over 12,000 years the Chumash tribes inhabited much of the central and southern coastal areas of California, including what is now Santa Barbara, Los…

editor’s note

Let Food Be Thy Medicine Hippocrates said. Lest us not forget. If there is one thing that is significantly impacting the lives of everyone today, it is the availability and quality of our food. But how many of us really take notice of our food, I mean really stop and look closely, smell closely, and really engage our brain to think about what it is we are eating and how good nutritionally it is for us? In this issue of The Art of Healing there are a few news bytes and research articles that draw our attention to foods (the good the bad and the ugly) and you are certainly seeing them in this magazine because I have been surprised - no shocked actually - to increasingly realise that the food we…

the connection

At 24 years old filmmaker Shannon Harvey was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. Her immune system had become hyperactive and was attacking normal, healthy tissues. Her muscles and joints were inflamed and she was told if her disease progressed she could end up with organ failure, or wheelchair bound. In search of a cure, Shannon tried everything from drugs to alternative therapies and everything in between. But she was still sick. There was one thing she did know. When she was stressed, she got worse and with a background in journalism, Shannon sought answers in pioneering science. On her journey to getting better, Shannon realised that in order to change her health she needed to change her mind. The Connection features scientists, researchers, writers and doctors, as well as remarkable true…

lack of bright light becoming a health and wellbeing issue

Your body needs daily bright light to regulate your sleep pattern and provide energy. Often however, we do not receive the daily bright light we need to maintain a well-timed body clock and natural energy levels. The use of technology in our modern indoor lifestyles, and the darker winter months impact the level and timing of the light we receive. “Daily bright light exposure helps to maintain appropriate timing of the circadian rhythm which is important for maintaining a good nocturnal sleep and effective daytime functioning”, says Professor Leon Lack, a world-renowned sleep psychologist. Professor Lack and his colleagues have studied the ability to re-time the circadian rhythm with light at the Sleep Laboratories, Flinders University in South Australia since 1987. Following their research findings they have invented a portable light therapy…

controlling weeds using steam

The Weedssteamer is specially designed to create super-heated water and wet steam which destroys weeds on contact. The steam rapidly raises the temperature of water held within plant cells causing them to expand, destroying the cell wall structure, an effect known as plasmolysis. The result is total and immediate destruction of soft tissue. The targeted weeds wilt immediately and brown off within 1-3 days and decompose into the soil adding to soil humus. • Weedsteamers only use super-heated water and wet steam to kill weeds• It is a chemical-free solution• It is safe to use around sensitive areas such as schools, hospitals, and wildlife habitats• It has no spray drift• It does not harm operators• It can be effectively operated in all weather conditions Most herbicides are used in the urban environment,…
