Comments10/08/2017 #18 Tricia Mitchell#10 Thanks for your comment, Pascal. I guess surrendering makes finding balance easier? Complacency is something that we all can fall "victim" to at some point in our lives, and it's often those who are given a time limit on their lives that really start living & teach us to not take anything for granted. I was looking for a Wayne Dyer video to post the link, but I can't find it. He talks about his book being published & how people told him how hard it would be. He chose to think it would be easy and that was his experience. I used to believe I had bad luck when it came to workmen and it became my reality. So, I'm not trying to deny your experience of it being difficult finding the right balance, but I'm practicing spending more time shifting my perspective towards things in life being easy 🙂
Thanks for reading & commenting.10/08/2017 #17 Tricia Mitchell#2 dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee Ive just read your superb buzz (extremes) and many thoughts spring to mind in response.
Sadly, because they are not hyperlinked, when I copy the url the search function doesn't allow me to look for posts (on the android app), so although I was able to view it in my browser, I didn't remember my log in details. Hopefully, I can remember the ideas when I reply later. Ah, perhaps I can paste and link it here... https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ali-anani/going-to-the-extreme-effect10/08/2017 #16 Tricia Mitchell#9 Dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee you wrote, "I find it surprising that many people go for the first choice dear @Tricia Mitchell "we can either fear & resist change or surrender in love to growth"." It is surprising how many of us default to living in fear. If you listen to the news or watch the television, it, perhaps, goes back to the article about football/soccer and state control I referenced one one of your posts on beBee. Keeping people in fear makes it easier to govern and control the masses.09/08/2017 #11 Harvey LloydYour post was intriguing. The word balance and me dont get along to well. Your points are well articulated and represent a spectrum of human conditions.
We often talk of balance in many contexts. Separating two componants as needing equal weight. With this mere thought we install a third component. A pendulum.
Within this creation of the pendulum, we now create the security of cause and effect for those situations/people that may cause it to move. Given enough time the pendulum becomes such a part of our life that we never question its value or curse. With each challenge we must go and look at the pendulum, did it move or change pace?
What happens when two pendulums collide? Each have merit but can not coexist.
Cause and effect is a human condition that is a permanent part of our existance. Creating variables that cant be managed in mass and can only be met with who we are within a singularity of time and space.
If i manage effect then my values change with each variable. If i retain my values within the variables then i have no need to manage cause or effect. In essence requiring no balance, only shared goals.
Some great thoughts this morning, thanks.09/08/2017 #5 Tricia Mitchell#2 Thank you dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee I look forward to reading the two buzzes you referenced that are of direct relevance to this one tomorrow (it's nearly 11pm). I meant to reference 10.57 & 12.55 - 13.29 of the last video listed as sections that may interest you. I believe those clips reference the effects of our thoughts on our chemistry.
I appreciate your kind comments & it only seemed fitting to share your wise words: we can either fear & resist change or surrender in love to growth. I'm truly grateful to you for taking the time to read & comment on this buzz, dear Ali.08/08/2017 #4 Tricia Mitchell#1 hi @David B. Grinberg thanks for sharing this in 3 hives, I appreciate it. I actually shifted my perception after reading this https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/my-life-outside-work-why-i-gave-up-work-life-balance-lirio-marcelo
but I'll certainly read your buzz in the morning. I agree with your comment that "integration focuses on coordinating and blending elements of work and life into a unified whole."
To be honest, I've had a proverbial bee in my bonnet since studying Deaf studies & sociology - the 1880 Milan convention where sign language was banned (resulting in the under-employment of deaf people) & the term dis-abled (handicapped) created as industrialisation took a hold to differentiate between able-bodied & those not able to work in factories. When people lived and worked on the land, the division of labour was based on ability/what each could contribute. I'm sure I didnt need to make any of that explicit, but it's interesting how we're coming full circle, returning to living organically, off the land.
Appreciate you reading & commenting.08/08/2017 #2 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBeeThank you for sharing this lovely buzz dear @Tricia Mitchell. All I can say is that I published many buzzes and presentations and I find myself in comple agreement with your buzz. I select two of buzzes that are of direct relevance to your buzz
Going to the Extreme Effect
and, Balanced Choices
What I like mostly about your buzz is that you living examples of cases we encounter losing balance. These are lively examples and give credibility for your buzz
I thank you for the great mention of my quote.I am deeply grateful to you08/08/2017 #1 David B. GrinbergThanks for another enlightening read, Tricia, I'm sharing this on three hives.
It appears the term "work-life integration" is catching on as a more realistic replacement for the buzz term "work-life balance." This is largely because balance implies a "zero sum game" which too often doesn't work (you're either in balance of not), whereas integration focuses on coordinating and blending elements of work and life into a unified whole.

It didn't happen overnight...5 years passed from this time of 'reckoning' to my move into a new career...I attended night school while still continuing to work full-time at this job until I had accumulated enough credits and proper training to make my move into entrepreneurship...I had to take anatomy and physiology all over again...Try to get a fourty year-old brain to do that!!...Ugh!21/07/2017 #14 Cyndi wilkins#10 Bitterness is a tough nut to crack...holding onto it only keeps us from flying.

Perhaps I could have saved myself a lot of heartache had I been paying closer attention...But then again, the whole experience of having been reduced to rubble was the catalyst I needed to make that change...and it has made me a much more compassionate person...In hindsight, as content as I may have THOUGHT I was, apparently my life had other plans for me;-)21/07/2017 #11 Cyndi wilkins#6 It really was exactly as you describe @Shelley Brown...being turned completely upside down so that life as you know it ceases to exist...All that is left is the ashes...Well now, after an experience like that, there is only one direction you can take...and that is back up again. At moments like these you find out who your friends really are...as it turns out, they were not the people I had surrounded myself with...They were people from my past relationships that came out of the wood work to help me...That's why I always say "never burn your bridges"...All of our paths cross for very good reason;-)

"Bitterness is drinking poison and hoping the other person gets sick."
When i heard the gentlemen make this qoute i got mad, he steamed up all the raw nerves of past experiences that i had justified my perceptions.
He didnt leave me at this steamed up point. He went on to discuss the act of forgiveness. He raised the temperature on the burner by several thousand degrees.
In the end he explained that forgiveness was not only for those waiting, but also for those who needed forgiveness.
The antidote to bitterness is forgiveness. Sounds counter intuitive, but i need to move on with my life without carting that rock forward. When i find a way to forgive then i can walk away without reruns playing over and over again in future settings.
Some great thoughts and discussion on the human condition.21/07/2017 #8 Lisa 🐝 GallagherWhat a genuine and thought provoking story @Cyndi wilkins. The smell of crappy diapers I could do without, hope you found a nice air freshener ;-) I agree, most of us if not all have at least one if not more than one deep seated fear(s). Why is it that sometimes it can be so hard to bring those fears to the surface? I know that's not healthy but I think some do let them linger not realizing they won't go away unless they face them head on... guilty! This is where your last sentence comes in very handy and it's compassionate, "People helping people...one moment at a time;-)" That's so true!21/07/2017 #7 David B. GrinbergThank you, Cyndi, for an excellent read. You make so many good points. I also love the quotes, some of which I'm familiar with per my own life situations. I would reiterate your point about how high stress levels can severely affect one's health. I also agree that maintaining a positive, optimistic mindset can work wonders during tough times -- and all the time. Your words of wisdom are most appreciated! Keep buzzing...21/07/2017 #6 Shelley BrownThis is a really powerful story @Cyndi wilkins and one I certainly relate to. It's like your life bucket gets turned upside down and you get terrified and try to grab all the life pieces and put them back together the way they were before knowing it's impossible. I absolutely believe a toxic situation caused my body to breakdown and I ended up having 3 major surgeries in year including a spinal fusion. It's really amazing how you express that "being given an opportunity to recognize and release that fear once and for all, so I could move forward and help my partner in doing the same" leading to "That shift in perception for me brought with it a sense of peace in being supportive in a committed relationship, rather than fearful for our physical survival and security".

This type of deep manual manipulation of the tissues can unlock those hidden treasures we have tucked away for safe keeping...When something surfaces, it is calling our attention to what is happening in our present that is being influenced by a past 'unresolved' emotion...and by unresolved I mean it has gone unrecognized as the catalyst to our current mind set...once we make that 'conscious' connection and release it from our physical being via movement, meditation, storytelling etc...we are able to move past it and embrace our new found freedom from the cage we have built around ourselves...Right @Deb 🐝 Helfrich;-)20/07/2017 #3 Sarah ElkinsI love this, @Cyndi wilkins, because I can visualize and imagine the entire story, from the release into your memory to the memory itself, and back again to the present moment. When I was in a toxic job, a friend and Pilates guru called me using Skype. She took one look at me and gave me a breathing exercise to do, telling me to do it right then at that moment. I started the exercise, and about 30 seconds into it started to sob. I hadn't cried in many months, but something about that physical activity created an incredible emotional release. My entire being felt less restricted after that.
I'm glad you posted this story, because I know how wonderful it is to grow and improve in your gifts as a result of helping others.20/07/2017 #2 🐝 Fatima G. WilliamsThe title for this buzz is so apt Cyndi. Healing the healer. The cure and healing lies within us. The answers lie within us but we go out looking for them or wait someone to tell us but what we really need is for someone to show us. And when you showed your self by sharing the experience the healing began. We are most of the time scared and unable to let go of those wounds caused by people, places and things. Its time to open up to ourselves and show ourselves what we are truly capable of.

That's one of the reasons I'm in therapy working on reprogramming my brain per se. Intrusive thoughts are unwanted thoughts that play over and over like a broken record in your mind no matter what thoughts you try to replace them with, they return instantly. I never realized how much my thoughts controlled me until I sought help. That is *one* of my issues and I actually thought for a very long time that I was weak and should be able to control my thoughts- I worked hard daily w/out success and just became more worn down physically, When people are inflicted with intrusive thoughts they beat themselves up more than anyone. Logically, a person will keep saying, "This is BS, I need to stop thinking these thoughts, re-direct... think about all the positive things going on, think of wonderful memories," eg, it's only a temporary (very temporary) reprieve. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a negative Nancy no matter how it may appear when I write. I agree, we can choose our thoughts but we aren't always in control. I appreciate you taking the time to read this. :)20/04/2017 #14 Robert CormackYou'll excuse my language, @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher, but one of the most therapeutic things you can do is tell your brain to "f**k off." I know it sounds crazy but our rambling minds can sometimes create panic that goes way beyond reality. Every time you feel anxious, just use those two little words. Say them to yourself or say them out loud. And just keep saying it until your brain calms down.20/04/2017 #10 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBeeI just wonder if your attention is spread over many issues if this would lead to increased anxiety @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher!

Comments07/03/2017 #12 Devesh 🐝 BhattAvoid cold foods, more than 12 hr old foods and cold milk after sundown.
Reduce coffee, add cinnamon to it.
People may suggest psyllum husk with curd , its a great remedy but if you get used to it then in the old age you would be at its mercy, rather in bad conditions do it twice a month.
Try half a spoon of raw honey + raw garlic every morning empty stomach. Increase raw garlic, ginger, fenugreek in diet added in small quantities to food or taken before /after.
If you can have cayenne pepper sprinkled almonds everyday, do it.
On bad days dont have beans peas and cabbage. If you can have unpealed apples great.
If you can get 5 minutes of sun between 7 am and 10 am everyday, take it.
I was an intern in a less popular but most respected Ayurveda academy as a kid and these things work.
Tc06/03/2017 #9 Sandra Smith#6 Hi Robert, yes, you are right about the HH. I thought I probably had that but I was prescribed omeraprazole, and that seemed to help for acid-type symptoms. The only way to know for sure was to go for a barium swallow, which I have not yet done. Things settled down due to lifestyle changes, so I didn't feel the need. But if it ever gets really bad, will have to go do that.06/03/2017 #7 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#4 #5 This is a tricky condition and the single best thing anyone can do is keep a rigorous food journal, and learn a bit about the digestive process. i.e. how long after eating do symptoms arise & what was the primary macronutrient.
Carbohydrates bypass the stomach. If the issue is happening relatively soon after eating, the source is in the stomach and that brings you to protein and/or fat digestion.
Antacids are a serious problem, as we need that acid to break down amino and fatty acids. Adding in ACV or lemon juice for bloating that occurs an hour or so after eating can provide pretty immediate results, if this is actually the problem.
Further along the intestinal tract, Gas, in and of itself, is natural, especially for anything loaded with fiber. And this is where it can be trial and error to observe what you are having trouble digesting and which gut bugs are missing to assist in breaking down which sort of nutritional substrate.
Since you both seem to be eating lots of veg, I'd recommend looking into Soil-based probiotics rather than the standard Lactobacillus stuff which tends to not be able to travel below the stomach because it cannot survive gastric acid.
Here is a reference from a product that I have used: http://www.prescript-assist.com/intestinal-health/soil-probiotics/
If the problem seems to resemble a leaky gut, which is a specialty of our modern highly specialized gluten molecule, I'd suggest looking into l-glutamine, which helps me reverse my gluten sensitivity, as long as I moderate consumption.
The key to sorting it out for good (because you do eat 3+ times every single day) is to get clear on what foods and where they trigger symptoms.06/03/2017 #4 Sandra Smith#2 I've heard that a lot, Claire about antibiotics. Some of the stories on the forums are awful. I used to take a lot of Advil, which I'm sure didn't help. I mostly avoid it now unless doctor recommends. Glad you've got some relief, and happy to send you the names of the probiotics that worked (also, Easiyo yogurt and kefir!!)06/03/2017 #2 Claire L Cardwell@Sandra Smith- Thanks for this! Very useful advice. I had gluten intolerance and used to have flare ups from time to time in the past if I over-indulged. However this year I got IBS in earnest. I had to take some antibiotics to try and clear up an eye condition and have suffered as a result. The pain and bloating have been very debilitating to say the least. I've been feeling a lot better over the last month, and I put this down to a) cutting out wheat and gluten entirely from my diet b) eating much smaller portion sizes and c) eating a lot of fruit and vegetables.

Comments16/04/2017 #17 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#16 I think it would benefit you immensely, @Lyon Brave. You do a very fine job of writing through it, but there is another level of healing when you can have an honest conversation to express it all with an eye towards that deep body sigh that signals it is safe to move on to what is next.
I identify a lot with where you are right now. I recognize myself in my 20s. No one really told me I could design the perfect life I wanted to live. It won't be easy, but you will have more freedom, even if the financial struggles continue, if you excavate your own path. You've got so much raw talent, but the truth of the world right now is that you need to 'package' yourself with a specific, although in no way standard, job title so that the people and companies with money know what you are capable of doing.
If you wanna skype, DM me. I have a little time over the next two weeks, and then I'll be pretty occupied as I will 'see' your OH to FL relo and raise you with a WA -> MA drive.18/02/2017 #14 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#13 You've highlighted the very thin line between anger and danger, @debasish majumder. I think that is why we find it easy to want to ignore these feelings, bury them, and pretend everything is fine. It is incredibly hard to express anger in a constructive way, and yet, learning this skill is pretty crucial for living a contented and meaningful life.
Knowing the things that draw our ire - the things we will not tolerate - helps us navigate life in a direction that will ultimately bring us to serenity, while ignoring anger is very likely to dump us right into situations that trigger the emotion in ever-escalating cycles.
Like so many things in life, the way to learn how to deal constructively with anger is to practice and @Cyndi wilkins and I are finding this buddy system to be a fun, fruitful, and sometimes profound way to express feelings, understand life-long patterns, and start to change the way we feel so that we move on, full of hope, curiosity, and delight.16/02/2017 #6 Cyndi wilkinsAs a manual therapist by training, I am more accustomed to using therapeutic touch to interpret the signals that the physical body communicates to me. In that way I can assist my client in the release of their pain through soft tissue manipulation. This was more of a cerebral experience where I really had to trust my intuition to guide me ...@Deb 🐝 Helfrich and I were both challenged to engage ALL of our senses...particularly sight, sound and body language, in an effort to tap into the "emotion" trying to make its way to the surface. Once we did that, we could have a little "playdate" with it...give it expression in a supportive environment where it can be transformed through the eyes of others as they reflect back to us the lessons to be learned from our collective experiences.
These "patterns of behavior" are inherent within all of us. As society has taught us to bury our emotions like an unnecessary appendage, it is high time we did a little excavating of those old bones and shed new light on how we express ourselves effectively.15/02/2017 #3 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#1 Of course, you picked out my favorite sentence, @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. And added so much more by extending it to the very important concept of SELF-NEGOTIATION. I actually think that is the core of learning to be a happy and well-adjusted human being.
Self-negotiation is learning about ourselves and how we react and questioning which parts of our actions and habits may be due to factors way beyond something as innocuous as a comment by a stranger that causes us to lash out in ways harmful to our own bodily equilibrium and meant to throw someone else off of their balance, regardless of who else might be inflicted unintended damage.
That sort of behavior solves nothing, generates nothing but hostility in return and actually becomes an ever increasing cycle since the actual wrong never had a chance to be rationally discussed.
I think the first step to being able to find the insight in anger is learning how other people process anger in ways that actually allow the emotion to resolve whatever situation first brought the feelings of hostility into focus.15/02/2017 #1 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBeeDear @Deb 🐝 Helfrich- wonderful buzz. You said it in one line "Being able to express ourselves, and all our emotions, with clarity is part of the dance of negotiation that every human needs to learn to live a joyful, productive, and relatively stress-less life". You bring up to my understanding a hugely important point. We need to negotiate with ourselves as we do with others. Self-negotiation is an idea that strikes me powerfully. Great reading and is worthy of sharing.

MON, 1/30, 330pm PST
Not all gluten free products are created equal. Sure it sounds healthy to be free of gluten but the truth is some of those snacks can actually make you fat. Holistic Nutritionist Danielle Pashko joins us to explain how this could be so, what to look out for, what you may want to try instead, and more.

Comments31/01/2017 #1 Sara HodgeHah! Yes, my husband learned this lesson the hard way after being diagnosed as a Celiac 7 years ago. He was so excited to be able to finally eat things like (gluten-free) bread and pasta again, but the weight came on pretty quickly. A lot of people seem to think that gluten free is the automatic equivalent to healthy, but it isn't. It's true that SOME GF foods are healthier, but most of those are naturally healthy foods like fruits and veggies. Anything processed or full of carbs is still going to make you gain weight if you eat enough of it. Our dietician told us people going gf thinking they'll lose weight easily is the #1 classic mistake.

A Clown Escort?!! WTF is exactly what I first thought when researching guests for my first sexual wellness show. I thought, really...this is who I want to bring on as my first guest? And then I thought, F#CK yeah- most definitely! What a way to break the ice on such a serious and often taboo subject. Then once I got Sugar Weasel on the phone, I definitely knew it was meant to be. We shared lots of laughs and honest truths that just resonated- and I thought it might with some of you too.
Some may find it absurd, hilarious, and outright freakish but most by now have got to be as curious as I was into the world of Sugar Weasal.
Tonight Sugar Weasel (his stage name of course or if you prefer to tell your Momma that you listened to a guy named Douglas Wright on my show...by all means, say that instead) joins us and shares a peek into his world, how he got into the Adult Entertainment business and why he decided to become a "Clown Escort" of all things. To quote, "It's not easy being Sugar Weasel, people either want to fight or fondle you." Not only that, listeners will get to hear the highs and lows of what it's like from a male's perspective being in Adult Entertainment.
