Natural Medicine Primer:  Mood and Stress

STRESS: a short, unassuming word used to describe an emotional state that is impacting your physical and mental functioning. 

Yet the reality for many people can’t be expressed in a simple six-letter word. Ongoing stress and mood issues can cause changed eating habits, cravings for sugar or salt, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, foggy thinking, short temper, and constant agitation. 

This Natural Medicine Primer focuses on common health problems related to stress issues. Dr. Mark walks you through a simple explanation of how your body handles stress and then addresses the most common health issues including anxiety, panic attacks, depression, postpartum depression, seasonal affective disorder, and attention deficit disorder. 

If you are seeking a more balanced approach to your everyday life and want natural solutions that will help stabilize your physical and mental health, this book was designed with you in mind and includes suggestions for herbal, nutritional, and exercise remedies. 

**This information is for ordinary people with daily stressful issues, the kind almost every family has going on to some degree. Many of the other mood-related disorders like bipolar, schizophrenia, borderline personalities, etc. are not tackled in this book. Further, this is not a resource for extreme situations and should not be used to aid a clinically depressed or suicidal person. Seek medical attention immediately.

Lenten Meditations (Liturgical Year B)

“You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has been resurrected! He is not here! See the place where they put Him. But go, tell His disciples and Peter, ‘He is going ahead of you to Galilee; you will see Him there just as He told you.’” (Mark 16:6-7) 

Lent is the Christian religious season where we prepare, seek, weigh, and evaluate our lives against the life of Jesus Christ. This Lenten devotional is aimed at helping you on your faith journey and giving you a focal point for praying your way through Lent. It is appropriate for individual or small group use. Each day’s lesson is inspired by the Roman Catholic Lectionary with a short meditation passage, three journal questions, and prayer. May you travel through the depths of these meditations and come to Easter with a greater understanding of your spiritual truth. “Christ is risen! He is risen indeed.” 

Advent Meditations (Liturgical Year B)

"Watch therefore, and pray continually, that ye may be counted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and that ye may stand before the son of man." (Luke 21:36, ASV) 

The world is constantly changing around us, but we, as humans, still face so many of the same travails as did our long ago ancestors: jealousy and insecurity, inner strife and outward war, the building up of false idols and narrow-minded beliefs, and the stickiest of all issues – our own imperfect-yet-striving human nature. Amazon best-selling devotional author Mark Fredericksen offers his latest meditation book for the 2014 Advent season with Advent Meditations (Liturgical Year B). With bible verses based on the Roman Catholic Daily Lectionary, this devotional is intended for all readers of faith who wish to deepen their spiritual relationship with God. Advent is a season of hope and expectation, and with daily Bible verses, a thoughtful meditation, journal questions, and a quiet prayer, the daily devotions encourage quiet time with God. The entries can offer an enlightening anchor on a busy day or longer meditative reflection for larger group study. 

Message from Dr. Mark: Advent is a time of waiting and planning, hoping and praying, anticipation and joy. Let us not forget, during the season that is upon us, that the birth of the Christ child cannot be celebrated in a vacuum. Rather, we are called to ponder, carefully, how this Divine birth fits into the entire realm of God-belief and Spirit-led faith. As you work through the twenty-six days of this year's Advent meditations, I urge you to think strongly about how the ancient Bible verses fit within today's society. We may be two thousand years removed from the birth of our Savior, but the poignant simplicity of the prophesies before Him and teachings from Him can still guide us through all the times of our lives. ACT like someone God is blessing every day (because you are!) and keep straining, keep leaning forward, even into the gale storm, because what is unpredictably ahead that you can't see is a far better prize than is the one you're carrying by looking backward.

Lenten Meditations: Liturgical Year A

"He has rescued us from the domain of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of the Son He loves." (Col. 1:13, HCSB) 

During the forty-seven days between Lent and Easter, Christians are called to walk along the path of faith with Jesus Christ, experiencing challenge and triumph alike, before arriving at that wondrous place where eternal life in God wins ultimate victory over death. In this volume, which follows the Liturgical Year A studies and is dated for use in 2014, read along with theologian Mark Fredericksen as he explores both well-known and oft-forgotten scriptures, tying all back to the central theme of Jesus' new and everlasting commandment of love. Including daily readings, meditation passages, journal questions and prayers, you'll learn, grow and expand your relationship with God through this Lenten devotional.

Dr. Mark says, "We have our mountaintop moments of profound awareness and connection with God, usually followed by low points of doubt and stress for managing our lives on our own. As we walk together through these days of Lent, remember two things. First, remember that God has joined Godself to you in a loving covenant that is everlasting. Second, that through the community of faith, we hold one another in our doubts and fears, as well as our certainties and faith."

Join Christians around the world on this wondrous journey,getting ready for the Good News to come. He is Risen!
