I’m so glad you decided to pop in and check me out!
My name is Elaine Offstein. My website explores natural and alternative approaches to healthcare, wellness, diet, and lifestyle.
Although I am not a healthcare practitioner, nutritionist, medical doctor, or nurse, I have always been interested in learning about alternative approaches to healthcare.
I retired from teaching Special Education in 1999. Following retirement, I trained to provide Real-Time, All-Digital EEG Neurofeedback for brain injury and learning disabilities.
What brought you to my site?
Perhaps you discovered my site through a search for information about brain function and brainwaves.
You might be seeking assistance for yourself, a friend or a loved one with particular conditions affecting brain function. EEG Neurofeedback addresses conditions such as epilepsy, migraines, concussion, traumatic brain injury, autism, ADD, brain fog, anxiety, dyslexia, or learning disabilities.
Did you find me through a search for natural, non-toxic remedies to improve joint mobility and joint lubrication or to diminish joint discomfort?
Perhaps you are concerned about signs of aging skin and are seeking natural products free of chemicals and artificial ingredients for reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and dryness.
Within the pages of this website you will find information about such topics. You will learn about services I provide and products I use and enjoy.
Natural, Alternative Health Care
I have created this website as a way to share the many possibilities and philosophies of natural and alternative health care.
I hope you will read my blog posts, where I present my opinion and knowledge on subjects I have studied and find valuable. I discuss concepts I learn through research on topics and issues affecting health, wellness, and lifestyle.
Products & Practices
Through the years, I have discovered products and daily practices that I use, enjoy, and have found helpful in creating better health for myself and my family.
Except for the company behind Liquid BioCell, I have no relationship with companies whose products I may mention in any of my blogs.
Learning from Experience
I became introduced to alternative, natural remedies to health in the late 1970’s, after decades of riding a merry-go-round of constant urinary tract infections followed by anti-biotics and medical procedures, followed by urinary tract infections.
Finally, a friend introduced me to natural alternatives as a different way of dealing with those issues. This led me to consider herbal remedies and how diet, and specific food choices could affect my health.
Eventually I became acquainted with acupuncture and chiropractic care. I found doctors who believed in natural alternatives to antibiotics and other medications.
A Balanced Approach
Modern medical care most certainly has a place in creating health and wellness. However, it is my opinion that we must create a partnership between medical science and alternative, natural, traditional/ancient wisdom approaches to health and wellness.
I believe in the importance and validity of alternative practices like acupuncture and chiropractic care, and the use of medicinal herbs, homeopathic preparations and supplements as components for achieving health and wellness.
I am a firm believer in the critical role and effect dietary choices have on our health. The food we eat becomes fuel and building materials for the cells of our bodies. The ability of our cells to produce optimum function, growth, and repair, depends upon the quality of the fuel and building materials we provide.
In addition to what we put into our bodies, our health is also impacted by what we put onto our bodies. It is a fact that health and wellbeing are also impacted by the environment around us, including the air we breathe and the toxins, pollution, pesticides, and chemicals to which we are exposed on an almost daily basis.
Emotional & Spiritual Connection
It is important to recognize that there is both an emotional and a spiritual component to health. Our state of being has tremendous impact and influence on our state of health. We must become cognizant that there are significant relationships and connections between and among the body, the brain, the mind, the emotions, and the spirit.
