A SOCIETY BASED ON NON THINKING FOLLOWERS

As our nation continues to grow, its expanding wealth becomes ever more dependent on a “NON THINKING” society. Our major institutions create rules (we call laws) to FOLLOW that serve the needs of these institutions rather than the needs of its people. These institutions have “sold us a bill of goods” based on altruistic motives […]

THERE IS NO WAR ON CANCER

As much as we’d like to believe our health care system is vehemently using every available resource to combat cancer in its goal to discover a CURE, the existing evidence contradicts this finding. The following quoted paragraphs come from Kaiser Health News (links provided if you choose to read the articles in their entirety.) KAISER […]

UNDERSTANDING WHY FOCUSING ON “FOOD” ALONE WILL NEVER ACHIEVE LONG TERM WEIGHT LOSS

Who doesn’t believe the ANSWER to weight loss , is PRIMARILY found in FOOD. Although this seems to make common sense, in reality, it is a MAJOR MISTAKE! Let me prove this with a simple analogy. If a person wanted to get an “A” in HISTORY or MATH (as a FINAL AVERAGE GRADE,) would: abstaining from […]

LIFESTYLE: IT’S NOT A ONE SIZE FITS ALL PACKAGE

  Providing guidance to help people achieve a better quality of life is a noble goal. One of the biggest problems, however, is not knowing what the recipient’s goals and desires are. It is easy to tell people to: eat better exercise more reduce stress but without clearly understanding an individual’s needs, these recommendations may […]

IMPRESSED?

YOU SHOULDN’T BE!! These are simply pictures without a story behind them. All they prove is I’ve successfully developed muscles. They don’t measure my HEALTH, they don’t measure my HAPPINESS, they don’t measure my commitment to ANYTHING other than muscle development. Aesthetics is a common GOAL of exercise. Clothes don’t fit…, mirrors become the enemy…, […]

BECOMING A HERO ON MEMORIAL DAY

Although we traditionally honor the brave men and women that have fought to protect our rights for freedom, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, I have begun wondering if these heroes wouldn’t want (and even expect) us to strive to become heroes in our own right? What better way to honor their sacrifices than to […]

THE INVOLUNTARY SACRIFICE OF OUR HEALTH LIBERTIES

The United States Constitution, The Declaration of Independence and The Bill Of Rights in combination provide its citizens protection of their civil LIBERTIES. This term is defined as: “the state of being free within society from oppressive restrictions imposed by authority on one’s way of life, behavior, or political views.” These liberties change when the […]

GOOD HEALTH REQUIRES A STRONG FOUNDATION

If a house is built on a poor foundation, its structural integrity would fail. The human body requires this same strong foundation to maintain its integrity to achieve the quality of life desired. Unfortunately, a majority of us stand on foundations created from “APATHY” and ongoing TOXIC BEHAVIOR rather than thoughtfully designed structures fortified by […]

THE OVER REACTION RESPONSE

THIS POST IS 1100 WORDS. IF YOU CARE ABOUT YOUR HEALTH AND YOUR FAMILY’S HEALTH, I PROMISE YOU WON’T BE DISAPPOINTED. Would you agree with me that selling a home and moving as a result of a backed up toilet would be an OVER REACTION RESPONSE? Sure, the annoyance/problem would no longer exist, but at […]

CHEMICAL WEAPONS

THIS POST IS ONLY 204 WORDS, BUT IT’S CONTENT MAY DISTURB SOME READERS. IT IS NOT INTENDED TO DIMINISH THE ATROCITIES TO THOSE WHOSE LIVES HAVE BEEN DEVASTATED FOREVER BY RECENT EVENTS IN SYRIA. INSTEAD, IT IS INTENDED TO ACCENTUATE ATROCITIES WE FACE EVERYDAY, YET CHOOSE TO REMAIN RETICENT.  IF YOU CHOOSE TO READ THIS […]

DEMYSTIFYING DISEASE

When most of think of DISEASE, we think of viral flu’s or bacterial infections. We don’t think about heart disease, diabetes, stroke, cancer or obesity. We classify these “terms” as “CONDITIONS” rather than diseases. Taber’s medical dictionary defines DISEASE as: “A condition marked by subjective complaints, a specific history, clinical signs and symptoms, and laboratory […]

DO YOU LIKE YOURSELF?…

The answer may seem obvious, UNTIL you create the two column list; one side PROVING you like yourself, the other side PROVING OTHERWISE. Each of us uses different parameters when determining whether we like or love ourselves. I’m going to provide some questions you can add to your own list to help you determine TRUTHFULLY […]

FOR THOSE IN NEED, I RECOMMEND TAKING THE TIME TO READ IT. . “I lost 100 pounds.” “I only have 35 pounds to go.” “I’m having trouble getting those last 10 pounds off.” These were such typical phrases I heard […]

“I JUST DON’T HAVE TIME”

Harry Chapin wrote a song called, “Cats In The Cradle” in 1974. It described a father and son’s relationship  from birth to old age. The song revealed a precious void in their loving relationship called TIME. The one recurring theme across all socioeconomic groups, genders, races, and religions is the lack of time. This excuse […]

COLON CANCER ON THE RISE FOR GEN “X” AND MILLENNIALS: WHY ARE DOCTOR’S SO SHOCKED?

  Miami (AFP) – “Rates of colon and rectal cancer are rising sharply among young and middle-aged adults in the United States but doctors have yet to pinpoint why, researchers said Tuesday.” The report in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute found that Generation X and millennials face anywhere from twice to four times […]

THE STROKE THAT CONFUSED DOCTORS

The gentleman was 89 years old. He was already taking Nifedipine and Atenolol (blood pressure medications,) Clopidogrel (a blood thinner,) Baby Aspirin (a blood thinner,) and Simvastatin (a cholesterol medication.) The combination of these pharmaceutical drugs were supposed to protect against cardiovascular disease and stroke. On February 9th, 2016, this gentleman drove himself to the […]

WHY LEARNING MATTERS

For each of us, the quantity and type of information we need (and want) to learn is different. Information can be confusing and contradictory. How is a person supposed to know WHO to LEARN the TRUTH from? I believe the answer to this question is simple (even though the LEARNING PROCESS may be complicated.) The […]

CREATING ACCOUNTABILITY

When it comes to our jobs, accountability often determines whether our paycheck reflects an increase or not. Knowing that someone or some group will evaluate job performance adds a level of accountability to the work performed. When it comes to exercise, ACCOUNTABILITY is another concept that helps incentivize people to stay on track. For most […]
