The Embrace--A Lifeline Between Worlds

The Embrace Apple Tree in the Lost Orchard

Walking through the Lost Orchard, I can’t help but stop to admire the apple tree known as The Embrace. When I gaze upon this tree or stand in its space, I feel transported to a different time, to the Victorian-era in which this tree was planted. My mind relaxes, my breath deepens, my heart remembers. Body and soul, I can’t help but feel pulled into its embrace by simply being in its presence. All at once, I am the one who planted the tree and nurtured its growth, and the one admiring its magnificence now. Not just an apple tree, The Embrace is a lifeline between two lives, two times, two worlds.

Top 10 Spring Superfoods

Microgreens are Powerful Healing Superfoods

Spring is finally here and along with it starts the cascade of vibrant superfoods.  Obviously, some take a little longer than others to rear their heads in our gardens or farmer’s markets, but here are my picks for the top 10 spring superfoods:

Artichokes—A medium-sized artichoke is loaded with fiber (about 10 grams) and vitamin C. It also contains plentiful amounts of the heart- and muscle-health minerals magnesium and potassium.  It’s also high on the ORAC list of foods that have high antioxidant values.  High amounts of antioxidants translate into reduced free radicals linked to aging and disease. 

Asparagus—An excellent source of nutrients like vitamin K which is necessary …

12 Signs You May Be Suffering from Narcissistic Abuse

I tend to be someone that people confide in. Even strangers often tell me the stories of their suffering, and of course, in my practice it has always been important to me to address healing from a body, mind, and spirit approach. That often means that people have shared their stories of abusive relationships. Suffering abuse at the hands or words of a narcissist, is sadly, more common than most people realize. And, contrary to popular opinion, women are not the only ones who may be victims of narcissistic abuse. Please note that I’m sharing this blog based on personal accounts shared with me in my practice or in my experiences with others and it is intended for informational purposes only. A…

My Discovery of a Lost Victorian-Era Orchard

Imagine buying a densely-forested acreage, beginning to remove invasive brush and trees to create walking trails, only to discover a lost orchard of massive, Victorian-era, heritage apple trees hidden among the forest...that's the beginning of this fairy-tale-like adventure that I am thrilled to share with you.

After many months of renovations, restorations, installations, and what felt like endless amounts of cleaning of my newly-purchased 130-year-old Victorian farmhouse, I finally lifted my head from what had begun to feel like never-ending drudgery and took to the land to clear the dust from my mind. After a frustrating day of work, I decided that I wanted a trail system through the f…

World's Easiest Yogurt (Recipe)

Delicious and Simple-to-Make Plant-Based YogurtDelicious and Simple-to-Make Plant-Based Yogurt. Photo copyright Michelle Schoffro Cook.

One day while I was busy straining whey from a batch of homemade dairy-free yogurt, and waiting for what seemed like way too much time, I said to myself “there must be a better way.” I knew that yogurt had been made this way for hundreds, or perhaps thousands, of years, but that was when yogurt was made from cow’s, goat’s, or camel’s milk.

With the substitution of cashews in place of milk, I set to work to find a better, no muss and no-fuss method for making dairy-free yogurt. Realizing that the culturing time can only be sped up so much (after all, the little beneficial bacteria need tim…

Why Vitamin D is More Important than Ever…and Useless Without This Nutrient

Spending time outdoors such as growing beautiful sunchokes helps your skin absorb vitamin D. Photo Copyright Michelle Schoffro Cook. Spending Time Outdoors, Such as Growing These Sunchokes Helps Your Skin Absorb Vitamin D.   Photo Copyright Michelle Schoffro Cook.

An exciting study in the medical journal PLOSOne found that correcting a vitamin D deficiency could help protect you against viral threats. The preliminary study found that this supplementing with this affordable and readily-available nutrient may reduce the risk of dying from a virus by 370%. While more research needs to be done to support the scientists’ findings, the study shows the potential benefits of the nutrient to ensure a healthy immune system. But, taking vitamin D is not enough as I’ll explain momentarily.

Research Shows Compound in Turmeric May Boost Brain Stem Cells

Most people are concerned about the health of their brain these days. And, for good reason: brain diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease are rapidly rising. According to some estimates, 35.8% of people 85 or older have some form of moderate to severe memory impairment. Fortunately, there are many things you can do to protect your brain and memory, from exercising and mental exercises, to healthy diet rich in brain foods like blueberries, walnuts, pomegranates, and more.

But, there is another way to boost your brain health—by increasing your brain's stem cells--those cells that can create more stem cells or become many other types of cells in the body. Research shows that a co…

Are You Suffering from an Oxygen Deficiency?

Did you know that 90 percent of our nutritional energy comes from oxygen and only 10 percent is derived from the food we ingest? Oxygen is fundamental. Colorless, tasteless and odorless, oxygen is the supreme element—a primary nutrient without which life would not exist. We can live without food for weeks and without water for between three to seven days. We can only live for between three and six minutes without oxygen before we begin to suffer brain damage, and ultimately death. Oxygen is critical to life.

The body literally starves without oxygen. Each of the body’s estimated 50 to 100 trillion cells requires oxygen for each and every one of its metabolic processes. You need oxygen t…
