December 2008 Body Mind Spirit Article By Dr. TwoMoon

Uncategorized Nov 15, 2012

December always marks a large change for many of us.
It is a month filled with activity and celebration and lots and lots of excess. Between buying a gift for every person that has been a part of your life over the previous year was not enough, we also spend more time running around, start feeling the chill of winter descend into our bodies and overindulge in food and treats of all kinds.

However, holidays don’t have to mean going off the deep end, rather they can mean a getting back to basics and celebrating our fortunes big and small. Take an inventory of the blessings the fill your life early in the holiday season.

BEIJING — Kerri Walsh's and Misty May-Treanor's waltz through pool play in their quest for the first repeat gold medal in Olympic beach volleyball history might have looked routine. It wasn't.
In fact, nothing this summer has been routine for Walsh, who is in more pain and has had more worries about her right shoulder than she normally lets on.

Though the gregarious Walsh is, in public, perpetually smiley-faced and provides more happy talk than Mister Rogers, she wasn't so cheery on that van one early morning in June in Berlin on her way to play a semifinal in her first international tournament of the year.

Walsh had taken a brief break from the AVP Tour schedule because of recurring soreness in the shoulder on which she had surgery in November to repair a torn rotator cuff.

In Berlin, two months before the Games, she was in agony while riding to a match she wasn't sure she could finish.

It was then that she began to receive treatment from an...
