Along the Wellness Path
We are all exposed to toxins on
a regular basis. Toxins enter our body via the
digestive tract, through skin absorption, lungs
and respiration, and even our internal emotions
such as anger are a potential source of toxins.
The body has basically three options when it
comes to dealing with toxins. One, the body may
and often does bury toxins in body fat. Second,
the body may effectively remove them. And third,
toxins may be deposited in tissues.
The liver is a primary organ
that helps us deal with toxins. It is much like
the oil filter in a car. It removes toxins from
the blood and dumps them out of the body through
Some signs of liver overload
might include poor digestion, fatigue, obesity,
dark circles under the eyes, high cholesterol,
joint pain, and sugar handling problems to name a
When the body cant handle
the toxic load it starts to function in a
suboptimal manner. As we meander down our
wellness path we should stop briefly and take an
intentional look at feeding our body specific
whole foods to encourage and enhance the function
of the liver.
For example, beets have
countless phytonutrients that encourage and
support proper liver and gallbladder function.
Specifically, young beet leaves are a great
source of betaine which is one of the B-complex
factors that help the liver do its job.
Feeding your body whole foods
will allow you to take a brisker walk along the
wellness path and enjoy increased energy and

Art Notes from
By Sally Armstrong, Director of artCentral
This week I want to give you
all a preview of the new art exhibition line-up
for 2009 here at the Hyde House Gallery. I have
just this day finalized the show schedule and am
very proud to present it to you as I will be
doing for my Board next Wednesday at our regular
meeting. The year will begin with an Opening on
February 13th and an interesting show of
contemporary abstract paintings by artist Jim
Bilgere entitled "10-B AT THE CARLTON
ARMS". Jim currently resides in Carthage,
but has associations with many other areas of
this country and others where he has lived and
painted over the years. I hope that the dates of
March 27th through April 12th will work for
Joplin photographer Mary Ann Soerries, as she
desires a time slot to display a group of her
wonderful floral and nature photographs next year
here at artCentral. The third show of the new
year will feature the fantasy art of our friend
Martha Goldman of Joplin in a show entitled
"AN AMERICAN FAIRYTALE". Martha taught
in this past summers artCamp and we look
forward to welcoming her back. Next will be our
annual MEMBERSHIP SHOW in June, followed by our
friends Bill and Rebecca Perry of Joplin who will
be bringing an all new exhibition of his
photography and her wonderful "objects"
on July 10th through the 26th. After the
summers childrens artCamp, the next
offering will be a joint show of Gregory Krepps
and Jed Schlegel which will contain the wonderful
ceramics by each of these fine potters. Dan
McWilliams of Jasper will bring a fine display of
oil paintings on October 23rd which will remain
until November 8th, and the final show of next
year will feature a joint exhibition of paintings
by Theresa Rankin and April Leiter, who will
bring her sculptures to artCentral for the first
time. Dont miss this wonderful group of
artists who will grace our galleries next season!
