The chill of autumn serves as a reminder of the harvest of pumpkins and other squashes we will consume this season. That, in turn, is a reminder of the many options that become available to us not only at different times of the year, but at different stages of our lives as well.
This issue of Energy Times takes those changes and choices into account. In “Nutrition for Her,” we examine the many choices women of any age have in improving their health with supplements and herbs. Although many people look at their advancing age with some trepidation, the more optimistic among us find that the older we get, the more choices we have and the more wisdom we have available to us to put into practice. You can read more about this in “The Benefits of Aging”.
Speaking of choices, we have the choice to reject goods and services that do us harm, though they have a de facto stamp of approval because they are legally on store shelves. These include beauty products, where natural, healthier alternatives abound. In “Hair, Naturally,” you’ll learn more about these choices for those beautiful locks draping your shoulders.
Finally, our cover celebrity this month, filmmaker David Lynch, is all about discovering change and options. He does so as one of the most vocal proponents of Transcendental Meditation. Lynch is trying to make sure that TM is as relevant and exciting today as it was when the Beatles made headlines with it when they visited India more than 40 years ago. With his foundation, Lynch, a sort of Johnny Appleseed for the soul, is bringing TM to vulnerable groups such as soldiers suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, but advocates its benefits for anyone.
