Omega Institute Hope, Connection & Survival in the Wild by Les Stroud
As a young boy I played outside my cottage in the forest, pretending to survive. I made pillows out of moss and put branches up for crude shelter roofs. I talked to trees and bugs and animals. It was my escape. My refuge from a mediocre life in suburbia. I dreamed of being like Jacques Cousteau. I dreamed of being like Tarzan. And, lo and behold, what is Survivorman if not the perfect hybrid of those two dreams? But in the adult world of television production, my reason for those dreams—connecting to nature—disappeared into the din of business, money, and schedules.  More

Why You May Want to Try a "Digital Detox"

Omega Institute A New Model for Treating Lyme Disease: An Interview With Dr. Richard Horowitz
An Interview With Dr. Richard Horowitz
Omega: You’ve written that, “Lyme is the great imitator.” What do you mean by that? Richard: Lyme imitates many other diseases. So many of the patients who have come to see me have been through 10 to 20 doctors, and they've been told that they have chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, autoimmune diseases like this rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and ALS. Or they've been told they have a whole host of psychiatric conditions—that they are anxious or have OCD—because Lyme can mimic every psychiatric manifestation also.  More
