How September Got Its Name: It's Latin for Septem - seven. The old Roman calendar began with March, until the Julian calendar reform in 46 BC moved the new year back two months.October got its name from the Latin word “octo” which means eight. It was actually the eighth month in Roman calendar and the name got carried from there to our calendar.
For those of us living in the northern hemisphere, we'll have the good fortune of seeing the autumn leaves turn colors. The magnificence of nature orchestrating her magic with changing colors is sheer delight to me. I've captured Mother Nature's resplendence with many of the photos in this newsletter.
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

It was Henry David Thoreau, in all his sagacity, who wrote this beautiful passage: If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost. There is where they should be. Now put foundations under them. I love that! You are the architect, master, and CEO of your body, your health, and your life. If you knew that you couldn't fail at achieving your highest vision for yourself, what would this look like? This is exactly what you want to write down. As within, so without.
The photo of me below was taken last autumn when I hosted a 3-day retreat highlighting all of the secrets for "Wellness Lifestyling" featured in my three latest books. The 30-day "reinvigorate your body and life" program detailed in WALKING ON AIR: Your 30-Day Inside and Out Rejuvenation Makeover offers an easy to follow month-long program. I guide you on how to make simple, yet effective, choices with your food, home, relationships, finances, lifestyle, and your state of mind. Each step (day) builds on the next and attention is given to the whole person — body, mind, soul, and environment. The two companion books designed to be a TRIO set are THE JOY FACTOR: 10 Sacred Practices for Radiant Health and my full color cookbook RECIPES FOR HEALTH BLISS.
When you purchase this set of three books mentioned above, you'll receive a BONUS GIFT—my entire series of 7 Natural Remedy Booklet/CD Combos absolutely FREE. Each book comes with an autographed card from me. To order this TRIO book set, call 800-523-9971, ext 1 (US & Canada) or 215-632-6100, Ext 1 (Intl), both ET, Monday - Friday • 9am - 5pm, and use the code—WELLNESS10. To order online, or to learn about my two other TRIO set options, please refer to the lower half of my HOMEPAGE.
I taught the material described in WALKING ON AIR and THE JOY FACTOR at UCLA for 30 years until I retired from there to teach this life-enriching, high-level wellness program worldwide, and to have more time to travel to give workshops, retreats, keynote address, and consult/work with clients. I participate in my 30-day program monthly—to start fresh the first of each month, as do most of my friends, to help keep us on track. If you would like to order any of these books individually or the entire 3-book set (remember, each book comes with an autographed card from me) and receive the seven bonus gifts mentioned above, to boot, please refer to the box below my Bio on the HOMEPAGE of this website.
In this issue, you'll find a recipe for a restorative, non-dairy Golden Milk (with turmeric), simple ways to reduce stress and support thyroid health, a list of my most favorite positive words, and information on how to detoxify and rejuvenate your body from head to toe, inside out. Special features will cover urine pH, symptoms of acidity, and the benefits of drinking alkaline water. You'll also find delicious and healthy smoothie recipes; how to dry skin brush and have glowing skin in 30 days; and what nutritional supplements to take when you travel. What to ban the blues when traveling or at home? See below on a simple way to do this. When I travel, I always bring along extra tablets of Hawaiian Spirulina. This superfood, which is so easy to accompany me when traveling, keeps my energy up, my skin glowing, my mood elevated, my stress down, and my body "in the pink."
We all live on Spaceship Earth. More than ever before, we need more kindness in the world. I'm sure you'll agree with me. The worldwide news these days is chaotic and dreadful. Kindness is the elixir of life and the uplifting refreshment we all need daily. Most people's lives are filled with stress. A kind word of encouragement, a compliment, a pat on the back or a hug, a thank-you note — we all need these thoughtful gestures. Find ways to express yourself with thoughtfulness these two months and beyond — even during business meetings, throughout your workday, or when you're in traffic running errands. Everyone benefits from kindness, and it starts with you — being kind to yourself and offering kindness to others. Here's one of my latest articles on Compassion & Kindness, with excerpts from THE JOY FACTOR.
September and October are great months to recommit to your health program — before the holidays begin — to plant the seeds for what you want to create for the next few months of the year, and to make better choices that support your self-esteem and celebrate life and each other.
For vibrant health year-round, here's one superfood of nature I take daily and highly recommend — BLUE MAJIK. It's an organic, all-raw nutritional supplement that heals the body head-to-toe, inside out. I take it in both capsule and powder forms. I encourage you to give it a try for three months and see how great you feel and look.
So let's all make the most of these glorious two months of unlimited possibilities, with lots of laughter. This short video is in German, but it will probably make you laugh. Titled So papa, how do you like the iPad we got you?,it's easy to understand no matter what language you speak.
