Dear Friends and Vibrant Readers,
A few days ago, I Tweeted, "May the reflections and rhythms of the season contribute to a prosperous harvest time of the spirit." That is our sincere message from Pure Energy Rx for this season of reflection and abundant harvest!
Our kitchen is filled with the aroma of dehydrating plums, simmering applesauce, and red sauce made from our luscious bounty of tomatoes, basil, garlic and chives.
On the topic of wellness heading into the fall, the best defense is a strong immune system. One of the components of a strong immune system is healthy exercise, movement, and breathwork--oxygenating the body, stretching and moving the body, detoxing your tissues and de-stressing your life.
With that in mind, I would like to introduce you to yogini, Sharon Snead, E-RYT 500 & CPT. Located in San Antonio, Texas. I'm over here in Portland, Oregon, but that doesn't inhibit us from supporting other like-minded people from the Longhorn State! Sharon and I are friends from Facebook--a really rad place to hang out.
Another introduction is for Aeva Wheet--a woman of many talents, who has contributed a lovely article on sound healing. I have often said that I can hear illness in a person's voice before it's detected, thus Aeva and I are very aligned with our thoughts around balancing the energetic system to support one's physical well-being.
In closing, enjoy, enjoy! We love and appreciate all of you.
And when in Portland, there is always a place at our table
Until next time...
In vibrant health,
Pure Energy Rx

5 Ways to Relieve Headaches Naturally
Want some natural alternatives to ease your aching head?
The Headache Point
Large Intestine 4 is such a powerful acupuncture point for headaches that is often referred to as ?the headache point?. It is located on the padded area of your hand between the thumb and index finger, between the first and second metacarpal bones. Massage this point with your thumb on both hands for approximately 30 seconds.
Peppermint oil has a calming and soothing effect on the body, and is often used to treat headaches. Rub peppermint essential oil across your forehead and temples to relieve a tension headache or inhale a peppermint steam treatment to treat a sinus headache. Adding 10-15 drops of peppermint oil to a warm bath is another great way to relax, help reduce muscle tension and relieve a headache.
Research suggests that capsaicin can help relieve cluster headaches. In one study, people with cluster headaches rubbed a capsaicin preparation inside and outside their noses on the same side of the head as the headache pain. Within five days, 75 percent reported less pain and fewer headaches.
Feverfew is a medicinal herb that has been used since ancient Greece for swelling and inflammation. Studies have shown that feverfew limits inflammation of blood vessels in the head and can reduce headaches. Feverfew generally takes up to four to six weeks to take effect. Sip tea or take a feverfew supplement daily.
Numerous clinical studies have shown that ginger can be used to relieve headaches. Researchers believe it does so by relaxing the blood vessels in the head and diminishing swelling in the brain. It also activates natural opiates in the brain that relieve pain, and it reduces prostaglandins, which are responsible for causing inflammation.
7 Healthy Habits for Headache Sufferers
Diet - Eat regular meals at regular times to avoid your blood sugar from falling too quickly. Also, avoid foods and drinks that are known to trigger headache attacks including processed meats, aged cheese, alcohol, and foods and beverages that contain aspartame.
Sleep - Maintain a regular sleeping schedule, including weekends and vacations.
Drink Water - Many headaches are simply dehydration taking its course. Drink water throughout the day.
Exercise - Exercise stimulates the body to release endorphins, which are brain chemicals that improve mood and relieve stress, which are known headache triggers.
Breathe - Observe how you breathe throughout the day, and make a conscious decision to take a full, deep breath every time you think of it. If necessary, set an alarm on a timer once an hour to remind you.
Smile - Smiling releases endorphins, regardless of how you feel, and it signals to the body and mind that things are resolving.
Get Massage and/or Reflexology - These trained professionals will locate the problem in a matter of seconds and give you great biofeedback for self-care.

The Benefits of Yoga and You
Sharon Snead has written one of our featured articles this month. Sharon owns and operates a very successful studio in San Antonio, Texas, and has an excellent and informative website. She says: "What is this love affair we seem to have with yoga? When you think about it, the practice itself is time-consuming and laborious--but, it's also full of excitement. It's a wonderfully curious adventure, a momentous discovery, and a quite trip into our inner being. Each moment of our yogic journey holds opportunities to feel powerful, spacious, connected, and so much more alive." >>>> MORE
What is Sound Meditation?
We connected with Aeva Wheet on Facebook, and the connection has proved very inspiring and informative. Aeva is a very talented metaphysician and create beautiful works of art in her jewelry designs. She contributed this article about her passion, Sound Meditation. She says: "I knew from my research that the Buddhist Monks use chanting and toning during meditation. I had always found that very relaxing to listen to when I was trying to be "still." I was also reading about something called "Sacred Harp" Music. This was a type of meditation that used vocal sounds to produce ecstatic states. Then, I went to a Seminar on Vocal Tonation, and I was hooked." >>>> MORE
