Did You Know?

Healing Essential Oils from the Rinds of Tangerines and Other Citrus Fruits:

Citrus fruits like oranges, tangerines, grapefruits, lemons, and limes contain essential oils, bioflavonoids, and vitamin C that naturally clear out stuffy sinuses and respiratory tracts.  Grind or grate each of the peels (they can be combined), then add a teaspoonful of the zest to a cup of hot water or herbal tea.


Healthy Breathing:  Most of us take shallow breaths from the upper lungs–a breathing pattern that increases levels of stress hormones and heightens pain. Taking deep breaths promotes the release of pain relieving chemicals called endorphins. People who experience pain and breathe deeply for five minutes daily experience less pain for several hours afterwards. Practice deep breathing in addition to a regular exercise program.


Natural Cure for Insomnia: If you’re having difficulty falling asleep, soak a washcloth in cold water then lie down placing the wet cloth over your abdomen. Some naturopaths and Eastern medicine doctors believe that the cold compress pulls energy from the head to the torso, relieving much of the pent-up stress responsible for keeping you awake.  

Inspirational Quotes

Walt Disney once said, “Around here, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we’re curious – and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” 

“You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you might find you get what you need.” ~Mick Jagger 

“It’s not the circumstances of our lives that shape us, but our beliefs about what those circumstances mean.” ~Marc Chernoff


I am not a healthcare professional, yet I decided to take MIOH’s NLP course because 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 havewhether 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 to anyone who is looking to increase their productivity in any workplace environment.

Letter from the Executive Director

Hi Everyone, 

“There is no such thing as a problem without a gift for you in its hands.” ~Richard Bach 

Have you ever wondered how hand signals in baseball got started? 

In the early 1900s, the New York Giants baseball team had a pitcher named Luther H. Taylor. He was a deaf mute who was, in an era of insensitivity, nicknamed "Dummy." Taylor lost a lot of games because of his inability to communicate with his teammates. John McGraw, the manager of the Giants, was under enormous pressure from the team’s owner, the fans, and the sportswriters to trade Taylor. Instead, McGraw required the entire Giants team to learn American Sign Language. Once that was accomplished, McGraw used hand signals to lead his team. That’s the origin of the hand signals that are used in baseball today. 

Interestingly, on May 16, 1902 the Giants played against the Cincinnati Reds, who had another remarkably talented and skilled deaf baseball player, William Ellsworth Hoy, known as "Dummy Hoy." Taylor pitched against Hoy on this date, and the occasion was reported to be "the first and only time two deaf professional athletes competed against one another.” When Hoy came to bat for the first time, he signed to Taylor, "I'm glad to see you.” Hoy collected two hits off Taylor, but Taylor got the win as the Giants beat the Reds 5-3. 

It took an open mind from the manager and teammates along with determination and persistence from both Taylor and Hoy. And because of that, the world of baseball as we know it today, changed. 

"In the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity."

~Albert Einstein

A Special Thanks...

Our Open House last month was a great success! I hope you had fun and did a lot of networking. I want to thank Tim Steele for giving such a dynamic presentation on "Communication is for the Birds." I hope you have already gleaned great insight on your communication style and how to communicate more effectively with others based on theirs.  


Here are some pictures.  Please visit our website to view other pictures from the Open House.
