Got Ama (toxins)?

Ama is toxic sludge that accumulates in our digestive track. It consists of undigested food and emotions that accumulate when we are making poor food choices, stressed-out, quit exercising and forget to drink water.

Got Ama (toxins)?, by Kate Towell.

You may be wondering what the heck is Ama? Well you know when you are feeling heavy, experience low energy, have mental fog, chronic headaches, poor digestion, uncontrolled cravings and your immune system seems to be on the fritz? If you experience one or many of these symptoms, then you’ve got Ama.

According to Ayurveda Ama is toxic sludge that accumulates in our digestive track. It consists of undigested food and emotions that accumulate when we are making poor food choices, stressed-out, quit exercising and forget to drink water. Ama also accumulates due to natural seasonal energies.  I know it sounds gross and it kinda is. Don’t worry you are not alone. We all experience varying levels of Ama, especially this time of year. Over the Winter the heavy Kapha (earth and water) energy builds in our system and can create Ama. The good news is as Spring approaches the energy is perfect to cleanse Ama out of our bodies.

I know how it is. You are busy: working, supporting families, building business, following dreams and trying to maintain some sense of balance. At the end of the day you are exhausted and the last thing you want to think about is what’s for dinner or who is doing the shopping. I know you are health conscious and desire to eat better but I see your carts.

Sometimes you can’t help but to grab the quick meals, prepackaged foods or eat out. I’m guilty of this too. There must be a better way to get a decent meal on the table. Right? The truth is the more you cook at home and prepare meals from fresh whole foods the more energy you will have and the quicker you will build your vibrant health.

Local woman creates art magazine for kids

Bothell resident, Eva Soukalova created a magazine for kids called arTree. She feels strongly that there is a need for kids to be exposed to more art.

Bothell resident, Eva Soukalova, is an art director with a background in child education and psychology. She feels strongly that there is a need for kids to be exposed to more art. This was her inspiration to create a magazine for kids called arTree.

Soukalova said, “The public school programs are being cut, art classes are expensive and parents do not have enough time to look for high-quality art projects online. I love art and ever since my kids were born, I was trying to teach them how to appreciate it and, of course, how to create it. I created hundreds of projects and lesson plans and decided that a magazine is the best way to share it with everybody. After all, which kid does not like to get their own mail?”
