Did You Know?

The Nose Tells When You Lie: Tissue inside the nose swells when a person lies, causing the nose to itch. So people often scratch or rub their noses when they are not being truthful. Nose rubbing – along with more frequently blinking and failing to meet another person’s eyes is a kind of natural lie detector. (Alan Hirsch, MD and Director, Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago) 

Mood-boosting Foods: Avocado’s vitamin B-6 and folic acid stimulate production of the mood-enhancing neurotransmitter serotonin. Barley’s vitamin B-1 calms and relieves tension. Chocolate’s various chemicals boost production of serotonin and endorphins that improve mood and dull pain. Cold-water fish such as salmon, halibut, and tuna contain omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins B-6, B-12, and folic acid. These substances help fight depression. (Andrew Rubman, ND, Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine, College of Naturopathic Medicine, University of Bridgeport, CT) 

Smart splinter remover: Just pour a drop of Elmer's Glue all over the splinter, let it dry, and peel the dried glue off the skin. The splinter sticks to the dried glue.

Inspirational Quotes

When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.” ~John Lennon 

Strength did not come from lifting weights. Strength comes from lifting oneself up when you are down.” ~Bob Moore 

People are like stained glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is light within.” ~Elizabeth Kubler-Ross


I am not a health care professional, yet I decided to take Marla Brucker's NLP course through the Motivational Institute of Hypnotherapy. Through the urging of my fiancé, a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, I felt that it would help to improve my effectiveness in my profession.  I work in sales and I came to find out that NLP is not just geared towards therapeutic professions.  NLP can also be used to improve your ability to effectively communicate your message and to elicit your intended responses from any customer one might have, whether that customer is a patient seeking therapy, a client seeking trust and direction, or a sales account seeking a vendor.  I would highly recommend this course for anyone who is looking to increase their productivity in any workplace environment.  ~Gino Azurmendi

Letter from the Executive Director

Hi Everyone, 

We’ve all been deeply impacted by the loss of Robin Williams; therefore, I want to share something amazing that validates everything I already believed about him. 

Every time Williams was booked for an event, he required the company that hired him to also hire homeless people to fill smaller on-site positions. Brian Lord, who attempted to book the popular actor for Premiere Speaker’s Bureau, opened up about the unique booking requirement. This is what he shared in his blog (reposted with permission from 

“Years ago I learned a very cool thing about Robin Williams,” Lord wrote. “I never actually booked Robin Williams for an event, but I came close enough that his office sent over his rider. For those outside of the entertainment industry, a rider lists an artist’s specific personal and technical needs for hosting them for an event--anything from specific bottled water and food, to sound and lighting requirements. You can learn a lot about a person from their rider. This is where rock bands list their requirement for green M&M’s...” 

“When I got Robin Williams’ rider, I was very surprised by what I found. He actually had a requirement that for every event or film he did, the company hiring him also had to hire a certain number of homeless people and put them to work,” Lord said. “I’ve never watched a Robin Williams movie the same way after that. I’m sure that on his own time and with his own money, he was working with these people in need, but he also decided to use his clout as an entertainer to make sure that production companies and event planners also learned the value of giving people a chance to work their way back.”

“I wonder how many production companies have continued the practice into their next non-Robin Williams project, as well as how many people got a chance at a job and the pride of earning an income, even temporarily, from his actions. He was a great multiplier of his impact. Thanks, Robin Williams - not just for laughs, but also for an amazing example of your love and generosity.” 

Let’s carry on his legacy by continuing to impact the lives of others.

To Your Success,

Marla Brucker, DCH, R.HA
