Worms, BuckWheat & Horticulture Therapy – all good for you!

Stress-free Worms, lying around

Do you know that BuckWheat is NOT wheat?  Do you know how to make worm juice to fertilize your garden?  – Important things I learned at The International Association of Clinical Hypnotherapy Meeting www.hypnosis4u.org!!!!

Linda Weisner a wonderful hypnotherapist and I learned about more than just hypnosis from John Warhank a talented hypnotist and Qigong teacher.  Since you didn’t attend the meeting I’m passing on information John knows that EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW:

1.  WORMS!

2.  BuckWheat!

While many people think that buckwheat is a cereal grain, it is actually a fruit seed that is related to rhubarb and sorrel making it a suitable substitute for grains for people who are sensitive to wheat or other grains that contain protein glutens. Buckwheat flowers are very fragrant and are attractive to bees that use them to produce a special, strongly flavored, dark honey.

3.  Can Gardening Help Troubled Minds Heal

by Kristofor Husted

If you haven’t noticed, gardens are popping up in some unconventional places – from prison yards to retirement and veteran homes to programs for troubled youth.

Most are handy sources of fresh and local food, but increasingly they’re also an extension of therapy for people with mental health issues, such as post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD; depression; and anxiety.

Anxious worm, tied up in knots

It’s called horticultural therapy. And some doctors, psychologists and occupational therapists are now at work to test whether building, planting, and harvesting a garden can be a therapeutic process in its own right.

One 2007 study in the journal Neuroscience found a bacteria found in soil linked with increased serotonin production in the brain — a sign that gardening could increase serotonin levels and improve depression.

Depressed worms who've lost their way

Much of the science behind just how gardening affects the mind and brain still remains a mystery. What scientists do know is that gardening reduces stress and calms the nerves. It decreases cortisol, a hormone that plays a role in stress response.
