Three things you can do to support your Mental and Physical Health as winter approaches

As November unfurls its amber tapestry and the first hints of winter chill tease the air, there’s more to this transitional month than the promise of holiday feasts and gatherings. November presents a unique opportunity to focus on a fundamental yet often overlooked aspect of our well-being: How our microbiome influences our mental and physical health. The beautiful vast ecosystem of living organisms within us, without whom we would have no immune health, no happy hormones, no existence at all, are pivotal not only in our ability to sustain health but also necessary in the facilitation of our ability to heal from mental health conditions and other chronic illnesses. 

The Enigmatic World Within: Understanding the vast ecosystem of living organisms within us

While we have trillions of bacteria and viruses living on and inside us, which are vital to our health and vitality, our gut holds a powerful network of microorganisms that create what is known as the gut microbiome. Often dubbed the body’s “second brain,” the unique ecosystem within our gut is teeming with life—trillions of microorganisms, including bacteria, fungi, and viruses. This bustling metropolis, collectively termed the “microbiome,” is a linchpin in our body’s functioning. 

From digesting complex carbohydrates to producing essential vitamins and brain chemicals like serotonin and dopamine, the trillions of bacteria and viruses that make up our bodies and literally give us life, health, and vitality, are fascinating multitaskers par excellence!

From influencing our personality to our immune function, to our health in every aspect, the living microbes that live on and in us influence our human experiences that stretches far and wide.

Mood and Emotions 

Ever had butterflies in your stomach before a big event? That’s the gut-brain connection and the interplay of millions of microbes in action. Research indicates that the ecosystem of microbes living in our gut (known as our microbiome) can significantly impact our mood, anxiety levels, and even cause depression.


A significant portion of our immune system is regulated in the gut. A healthy microbiome with optimal balances of the right types of bacteria and other microorganisms equips the body to fend off infections and illnesses more effectively.

Embracing Emotional Harmony: Five Heartwarming Ways Qigong Nurtures Your Soul

by Dina Joy Muchnick, Chinese Energetic Medicine Therapist

In the hustle and bustle of modern life, where emotions often ride the rollercoaster of daily challenges, finding ways to nurture emotional health becomes an invaluable pursuit. Enter Qigong, a time-honored practice that not only embraces the physical but also lovingly nurtures the emotional well-being of those who engage in it. Let’s explore five heartwarming ways in which Qigong can become your steadfast companion on the journey to emotional harmony.

Embracing the Breath of Serenity:

At the heart of Qigong lies a gentle, intentional dance with the breath. Each inhalation is an invitation to welcome peace, while every exhalation is a release of tension. In the rhythm of your breath, you discover a sacred space where emotional storms subside. As you inhale, envision light, positivity, and serenity filling your being, and with each exhalation, let go of any emotional burdens, tension, and pain you may have. In this symphony of breath, you find a pathway to calm the storm within and cultivate a lasting sense of emotional serenity.

Flowing Through Emotional Blockages:

Just as a river flows effortlessly around obstacles, Qigong encourages the flow of energy, breaking down emotional barriers in its path. The graceful movements of Qigong guide emotions through a harmonious journey, allowing them to surface, be felt, express themselves, and gracefully dissipate. This fluid dance empowers you to acknowledge and release emotions, creating a profound sense of emotional freedom. Through Qigong, you learn that emotions are like passing clouds—temporary and ever-changing.

Cultivating Mindful Emotional Presence:

Qigong is not just a physical exercise; it’s a mindful exploration of your emotional landscape. As you engage in the flowing movements, each practice becomes an opportunity to be present with your emotions. In this mindful dance, you become an observer, allowing emotions to rise and fall without judgment. This practice of emotional presence fosters self-awareness, a key ingredient in the recipe for emotional health. With Qigong, you learn to be with your emotions, cultivating a compassionate space for their expression.

Layla’s liver is back in range!                                                             

My most recent win is my ALT liver numbers are finally in range!!! I’ve been in the program and healing my liver since February and had a history of high liver enzymes and liver stress overload. Since starting my MHH protocols in your program, my liver markers on my blood work have continually decreased and finally they are in range!

                                                                                                                                                Layla T., October 2023

Laurie is feeling better on all levels                                             

I consider myself blessed to be one who has been touched by your gift. I’m just starting month five, and the changes in how I feel physically, emotionally and spiritually are astronomical. Just imagining where I will be once I complete this program is mind blowing. So always take time to heal yourself and continue to lead by example as you have set up one awesome system which works wonderfully! Love you and what you are doing ❤️

                                                                                                                                                   Laurie, October 2023

Debbie’s tapping provided an unexpected bonus!

I have found that trusting the modalities is truly a large part of our healing. I had a homework exercise from Dina to do knee tapping. I did it once a day until my next session. I didn‘t see too many results, just a few that weren’t earth shattering. During my next session, Dina told me to increase the amount of time. I did it twice a day at 5 minutes. WOW! It was a game changer!!! An extra added bonus is that it has helped regulate my nervous system as well and I don’t get overwhelmed as easily!

                                                                                                                                           Debbie M., October 2023

Laurie shared, “I finally see how I am worth investing in myself.”

In only 4 months of working with Modern Holistic Health, Rosita helped rid me of an almost 50 year trauma which has been remarkable. Can’t wait for my next session. I finally see how I am worth investing in myself. I’m starting to see and feel real results. I’m not going back! I can’t thank everyone at MHH enough for your help and encouragement.

                                                                                                                                              Laurie S., October 2023
