All the Answers Are Within Us


Dr. Howard Peiper, N.D. -


 Many of us seek answers to life’s questions by looking outside of ourselves and trying to glean advice from people around us. But as each of us is unique, with our own personal histories, our sense of right and wrong, and our own way of experiencing the world that defines our realities, looking to others for our answers is only partially helpful. The answers to our personal questions can be most often found by looking within. When we realize that we always have access to the part of us that always knows what we need and is meant to act as our inner compass, we can stop searching outside of ourselves. If we can learn to hear, trust, and embrace the wisdom that lives within us, we will be able to confidently navigate our lives.

A client of mine told me a story about a child she had to operate on. This child was 7 years old and 100lbs. He had to have emergency surgery on his gall bladder (an organ that aids in the digestion of fats). At 7 years old his gall bladder had stones due to his horrendous diet. At the post operation consultation the mother asked the doctor what can be done to avoid this in the future. The doctor started by asking about his diet and activity levels. The diet consisted of pizza and soda…that seemed to be all the mother could get him to eat. The activity level consisted of Nintendo.

By Dale Petersen - Building  Health -

With the approach of spring thoughts often turn toward summer vacations. When my children were still young and living at home we spent two weeks each summer exploring a section of the country. We were fortunate to be living in the central United States, as we could drive to most destinations. One summer we would go west to see the Grand Canyon and surrounding national parks. The next year might find us heading north to Glacier National Park or east to the Great Smokies.
