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
Omega Institute Find Greater Health in Unexpected Ways
A beautiful sunrise that suffuses you with peace. A painting that inspires you and moves you to create your own art. The clear night sky whose expanse of stars makes you feel insignificant and significant at the same time. While it may be difficult to put these experiences into words, there are times when you feel a connection happening inside. It’s as if seemingly separate parts of yourself come together, or everything between you and the rest of the world dissolves, and suddenly you feel acutely alive. More
Omega Institute Experience a State of Oneness by Alberto Villoldo
Years ago I was amazed to learn that 90 percent of the human body consists of bacteria that are alien to us. Only the remaining 10 percent of the body is made up of our own DNA. So does this mean that “I” am only that 10 percent? No. I am the energy field that organizes this amazing living colony that has a sense of self, of "I-ness." The 100 trillion cells of my colony are kept humming in harmony and balance by the Luminous Energy Field (LEF), operating through my brain and nervous system. More

Omega Institute Managing Menopause With Qigong
Some women hardly notice the changes that come along with menopause. Other women experience the changes as uncomfortable or even unbearable. Either way, studies show that women can benefit from the ancient wisdom of qigong, a form of meditative movement that originated in China and helps balance and cultivate qi, or energy, within the body. Symptoms & Traditional Treatment More
Omega Institute 10 Ayurvedic Practices for Winter by Shiva Rea
Self-Care for the Quiet Season
1. Sneha—oiling the body, nose, and ears in the evening is nourishing and fortifying for the muscles and connective tissues. As our bodies are exposed to cold and wind, our pores and fascia tighten and roughen in response. Oiling the orifices of the head helps the sensory pathways stay balanced. Favor kapha massage oil, ashwagandha-bala oil, or sesame oil.  2. Do dry-brushing a few times a week to invigorate the tissues and move stagnant lymph and blood. More
Omega Institute An Introduction to Subtle Energy
How to Work With Prana and Qi
Words to describe the subtle life force that animates us—like prana and qi—have been around for thousands of years. These terms are only recently becoming common in our Western vernacular and can be difficult to translate. Like a cool breeze or the warmth of a fire, prana and qi are perhaps more easily understood when felt and experienced. More
Omega Institute How Friends Make Life Better
Abbott and Costello. Laverne and Shirley. Kirk and Spock. Bert and Ernie. Thelma and Louise. Chandler and Joey. Harry and Hermione. These iconic fictional friendships, depending on our age, hold special places in our memories. Whether these duos helped us laugh or had relationships we wanted to emulate in our own lives, they illustrate the value we find in friendship. Friends can offer a listening ear, a hand to hold, or hug when you need it. But friendships are fading these days. More

Omega Institute Take a Stand In Your Life By Sitting Down to Meditate by Jon Kabat-Zinn
In its outward manifestation, meditation appears to involve either stopping, by parking the body in stillness that suspends activity, or giving oneself over to flowing movement. In either case, it is an embodiment of wise attention, an inward gesture undertaken for the most part in silence, a shift from doing to simply being. It is an act that may at first seem artificial but that we soon discover, if we keep at it, is ultimately one of pure love for the life unfolding within us and around us. More
