I would like to introduce our Lotus Guide community to Dr. Otani whom I met while being interviewed in the documentary, A Wave Of Compassion, which was about alternative ways to deal with addiction. When I met Dr. Otani he was working for ENLOE Hospital helping patients who had tried everything; so Dr. Otani was their last hope in a lot of situations. He now works at Feather River Hospital in the role of an integrative physician bridging East and West, taking medicine to new levels of understanding.

According to official historians, the Toltec culture disappeared in the AD late 900s, leaving nothing more than mysterious cities, impressive pyramids, and rumors still maintained of an ancient culture of art and knowledge. Imagine their surprise when, in the late 20th century, Toltec men and women of knowledge began to emerge from the shadows to reveal the secrets of a culture long kept hidden, deliberately to be shared at this point in history.
Dreaming as the Way to Knowledge
Koyote the Blind is a Toltec man of knowledge who has mastered the esoteric keys known to the enlightened civilizations of the American continent existing before the Read more [...]

It’s not necessarily because I’m 25 percent Cherokee, or even that it’s the right thing to do, which it is, that I’m throwing in my two cents on this issue. I was thinking of writing this article anyway, but it was confirmed when I started reading what traditional news media was saying. An example is CNN. Here’s one of its reasons that the protest should be abandoned: It interviewed Robert “Fool” Bear, who lives in a nearby town called Cannon Ball, where some of the inhabitants (840 population) sometimes have to drive 40 miles out of their way because of the protests. He said this at the same time he said, "It irks me. People are here from all over the world; Read more [...]

Ever read an article whose description of symptoms points to that idea you need to supplement your diet with more of “this or that”?
Have you ever gone to a doctor or nutritionist and learned you are “low” on a certain nutrient?
Ever had an official blood test that has revealed you are deficient in, say for example, vitamin D, B12, or iron?
There are numerous ways to find out what we are lacking in our diet, from doing our own research to seeking the help of a medical professional. And numerous signs and symptoms may point the way. See “Symptoms of Poor Carbohydrate, Protein, and Fat Digestion” below. While it is useful to learn that certain Read more [...]

“According to the National Center for Health Statistics (2006), approximately 76.2 million, one in every four Americans, ha[s] suffered from pain that lasts longer than 24 hours and millions more suffer from acute pain. Chronic pain is the most common cause of long-term disability.”—NIH.gov
For 10 years, my practice was focused on treating individuals living with chronic pain. It was troubling to see so many people suffering so deeply and feeling helpless to stop the symptoms they experienced: shooting, radiating pain; full body aches; severe joint pain; severe migraines; and neuropathic pain. I worked within the traditional framework of allopathic medicine, Read more [...]

Herbal solutions and natural skin-care products have found a home at Fiona’s Forest in Paradise, California. As an herbalist, I harvest local plants, process the gathered components, and offer an apprenticeship program at the shop. The local environment provides hundreds of herbs to accommodate “wild crafting,” which offers alternatives to pharmaceutical products with undesirable side effects. With a responsible and sustainable harvesting method, gatherings are ongoing and production of tinctures and salves is under way daily at Fiona’s Forest. Consultations with an experienced herbalist are available and can help you find your way back to health.

0 In today's world of Misinformation and Disinformation we need to be wise and use discernment whenever we read or watch the news. I go to great lengths to fact check anything I talk about or write about so I can bring you the best information possible; not to tell you what to think, but simply to get you to think armed with good solid information with no agenda behind it.

I know the title sounds almost as if it’s the beginning of a sick joke, but it’s not. A mineral found in almost every piece of technology we use—computers, iPads, cell phones, and so on—is called columbite-tantalite, coltan for short. When refined, coltan becomes a heat-resistant powder, metallic tantalum, that has unique properties for storing an electrical charge.
In a recent report from the United Nations it was shown that the militia involved in the local civil war’s in the Democratic Republic of the Congo make their money mining Coltan. An example of the money being made would be that of the nearby Read more [...]
Comments Off on Enloe Volunteers Enloe Volunteers Share Greatest Gift
Message from Lotus Guide: A recent Gallup poll reported an increase in the number of people volunteering. It stated that it’s because people are being exposed to the “world of volunteering,” which we believe is true; however, we also believe that it’s also because people are being exposed to the “world” more than ever in human history. We think Winston Churchill put it well when he said, “You make a living by what you get. You make a life by what you give.” Understanding our true value in our world is the real challenge of our time.
We would also like to thank Enloe Medical Center for opening its doors to our magazine during the past few Read more [...]
