Dear Readers, Welcome to our premier issue of your Resource Guide for a Healthy Community in Print. We encourage you to visit the website and learn more about each of the participants by clicking on each card. It will take you to their services, products, aspirations and sharing of their gifts. As we grow, you will also find much more, like blogs, interviews, classes, art, store and much more. We want to grow with you. When you visit any member of this community, let them know you saw them here, and you support a world that works for all of us. Many Blessings, Carmen Hironimus & Tara Williams, publishers. Acupunture & Herbal Medicine Resources for Energy Efficiency & Sustainability Following are a few examples of how you can be more energy efficient and help the environment, too. Energy Star Appliances & CFL Bulbs Energy-efficient appliances and CFL bulbs lower energy usage, while saving you money in the long run. Lower energy consumption means less air pollution from power plants. PG&E Energy Partners Program The Energy Partners Program provides income-qualified customers free energy education, weatherization measures and energy-efficient appliances to reduce gas and electric usage. Call PG&E’s Smarter Energy Line for more information: 1-800-933-9555. Home Improvements Taxpayers who upgrade their homes to improve energy efficiency or make use of renewable energy may be eligible for tax credits to offset some of the costs. As of the 2014 tax year, the federal government offers two such credits: the Residential Energy Efficiency Property Credit and the Non-business Energy Property Credit. The first credit is good through 2016; the second was due to expire after 2014 (although it has been extended in the past). Caim either credit by filing Form 5695 with your tax return. Tankless Water Heaters Save up to 25% on water heating costs while you enjoy hot water “on demand”. Energy Star tankless water heaters also qualify for the federal tax credit*. Energy Star labeled Metal Roofs Acupunture & Oriental Medicine Reflective roofs reduce the amount of air conditioning needs and can reduce energy bills by up to 50%. Peak cooling demand may be reduced by 10-15% with the right metal roof for your home. Solar Energy Systems By going solar, you can dramatically reduce your carbon footprint. Each solar kilowatt hour (kWh) offsets more than a pound of carbon dioxide (CO2). Plus, solar systems are extremely reliable, and produce clean energy from the sun for up to 25 years! Hybrid Vehicles Fuel-efficient vehicles provide many benefits including better gas mileage, which means lower gasoline costs, fewer emissions, and reduced air pollution. Drive green and feel good about it! 2 27

Definitions of Common Therapies & Modalities Quantum Biofeedback / Spirtual Health Coach systems. Herbal formulas have three basic functions: elimination and detoxification, health management and maintenance, and health building. Holistic Health Practices Practices and therapies that have healing the whole person as the goal. These therapies recognize the totality of the human being — the inter-connectedness of body, mind, emotion, spirit, social/cultural, relationship, context, and environment. Holistic practitioners honor each individual’s subjective experience about health, health beliefs, and values. They use their clinical knowledge, theories, expertise and intuition to become therapeutic partners with people in their care. Holoenergetic Healing Holoenergetic Healing is a method for healing with the energy of the “whole.” Developed by Leonard Laskow, M.D., a Stanford- trained physician who has studied the healing power of love for the past 25 years, it is based on the awareness that as we come into wholeness through love, the enormous energy we use to maintain the illusion of separation from Unity is liberated and can be directed to heal the physical body, resolve emotional issues, enhance creativity, support personal transformation, and spiritual awakening. Homeopathy A system of medicine which stimulates healing through the administration of substances prescribed according to three basic principles: (1) like cures like, (2) the more a remedy is diluted, the greater the potency; and (3) illness is specific to the individual. Treatment is based on the whole person, rather than on the symptoms. The theory is that each naturally occurring element, plant, and mineral compound will, when ingested or applied, result in certain symptoms. It is a system of therapy based on the concept that disease can be treated with drugs (in minute doses) thought capable of producing the same symptoms in healthy people as the disease itself. Hydrotherapy The use of water, ice, steam, and hot and cold temperatures to maintain and restore health. Treatments include full body immersion, steam baths, saunas, and the application of hot and/or cold compresses. Hypnotherapy The use of a state of focused attention, achieved through guided relaxation, to access the unconscious mind. Hypnosis is usedfor memory recall, medical treatment, and skill enhancement or personal growth. 18 Carmen Hironimus, CBT Spiritual Health Coach 530.680.8339 www.carmenhironimus.com carmen@carmenhironimus.com Quantum Scalar Wave Laser Therapy Carmen Hironimus, CBT Laser Therapist 530-680-8339 carmen@carmenhironimus.com www.quantumdynamics.ilovemylaser.com Radio Listener Supported Listen on line... www.radioparadise.com RP is a blend of many styles and genres of music, carefully selected and mixed by two real human beings.

Definitions of Common Therapies & Modalities Quantum Biofeedback / Spirtual Health Coach systems. Herbal formulas have three basic functions: elimination and detoxification, health management and maintenance, and health building. Holistic Health Practices Practices and therapies that have healing the whole person as the goal. These therapies recognize the totality of the human being — the inter-connectedness of body, mind, emotion, spirit, social/cultural, relationship, context, and environment. Holistic practitioners honor each individual’s subjective experience about health, health beliefs, and values. They use their clinical knowledge, theories, expertise and intuition to become therapeutic partners with people in their care. Holoenergetic Healing Holoenergetic Healing is a method for healing with the energy of the “whole.” Developed by Leonard Laskow, M.D., a Stanford- trained physician who has studied the healing power of love for the past 25 years, it is based on the awareness that as we come into wholeness through love, the enormous energy we use to maintain the illusion of separation from Unity is liberated and can be directed to heal the physical body, resolve emotional issues, enhance creativity, support personal transformation, and spiritual awakening. Homeopathy A system of medicine which stimulates healing through the administration of substances prescribed according to three basic principles: (1) like cures like, (2) the more a remedy is diluted, the greater the potency; and (3) illness is specific to the individual. Treatment is based on the whole person, rather than on the symptoms. The theory is that each naturally occurring element, plant, and mineral compound will, when ingested or applied, result in certain symptoms. It is a system of therapy based on the concept that disease can be treated with drugs (in minute doses) thought capable of producing the same symptoms in healthy people as the disease itself. Hydrotherapy The use of water, ice, steam, and hot and cold temperatures to maintain and restore health. Treatments include full body immersion, steam baths, saunas, and the application of hot and/or cold compresses. Hypnotherapy The use of a state of focused attention, achieved through guided relaxation, to access the unconscious mind. Hypnosis is usedfor memory recall, medical treatment, and skill enhancement or personal growth. 18 Carmen Hironimus, CBT Spiritual Health Coach 530.680.8339 www.carmenhironimus.com carmen@carmenhironimus.com Quantum Scalar Wave Laser Therapy Carmen Hironimus, CBT Laser Therapist 530-680-8339 carmen@carmenhironimus.com www.quantumdynamics.ilovemylaser.com Radio Listener Supported Listen on line... www.radioparadise.com RP is a blend of many styles and genres of music, carefully selected and mixed by two real human beings.

Dear Readers, Welcome to our premier issue of your Resource Guide for a Healthy Community in Print. We encourage you to visit the website and learn more about each of the participants by clicking on each card. It will take you to their services, products, aspirations and sharing of their gifts. As we grow, you will also find much more, like blogs, interviews, classes, art, store and much more. We want to grow with you. When you visit any member of this community, let them know you saw them here, and you support a world that works for all of us. Many Blessings, Carmen Hironimus & Tara Williams, publishers. Acupunture & Herbal Medicine Resources for Energy Efficiency & Sustainability Following are a few examples of how you can be more energy efficient and help the environment, too. Energy Star Appliances & CFL Bulbs Energy-efficient appliances and CFL bulbs lower energy usage, while saving you money in the long run. Lower energy consumption means less air pollution from power plants. PG&E Energy Partners Program The Energy Partners Program provides income-qualified customers free energy education, weatherization measures and energy-efficient appliances to reduce gas and electric usage. Call PG&E’s Smarter Energy Line for more information: 1-800-933-9555. Home Improvements Taxpayers who upgrade their homes to improve energy efficiency or make use of renewable energy may be eligible for tax credits to offset some of the costs. As of the 2014 tax year, the federal government offers two such credits: the Residential Energy Efficiency Property Credit and the Non-business Energy Property Credit. The first credit is good through 2016; the second was due to expire after 2014 (although it has been extended in the past). Caim either credit by filing Form 5695 with your tax return. Tankless Water Heaters Save up to 25% on water heating costs while you enjoy hot water “on demand”. Energy Star tankless water heaters also qualify for the federal tax credit*. Energy Star labeled Metal Roofs Acupunture & Oriental Medicine Reflective roofs reduce the amount of air conditioning needs and can reduce energy bills by up to 50%. Peak cooling demand may be reduced by 10-15% with the right metal roof for your home. Solar Energy Systems By going solar, you can dramatically reduce your carbon footprint. Each solar kilowatt hour (kWh) offsets more than a pound of carbon dioxide (CO2). Plus, solar systems are extremely reliable, and produce clean energy from the sun for up to 25 years! Hybrid Vehicles Fuel-efficient vehicles provide many benefits including better gas mileage, which means lower gasoline costs, fewer emissions, and reduced air pollution. Drive green and feel good about it! 2 27
