Boulder on your shoulder!

ImageIf you’re like most physical therapists you feel like you have a boulder on your shoulders when you attempt to grow your practice. We can help but not the kind of help you think. We won’t be doing it for you (the old way) we’re going to educate you so that you can throw it off yourself. A monumental feat, I know, but we’ve done it time and time again with our clients. Here’s a link to their testimonials. Have a look, you might know one of them.

So here’s the story. You go to College and get whatever degree you wish, open your own practice, start to promote the best you can and little or nothing happens. There are only two reasons, your education has failed you or you haven’t been educated effectively in workable solutions that produce results.
We’re going to assume both things have happened to you as this is the norm. Interviews of new clients proves this to be the fact. To now go on hoping that you will figure it out on your own would be adventurous to say the least. Time being the most relevant factor, you don’t have the time to work it out before your practice gets to the point where it is insolvent. Bail outs by family members might help at that point but don’t give you the education needed to succeed, so the boulder reappears.
Now, contacting us is going to take some self control on your part. First you would have to realize you need help. Then you would have to assume that we are company with a long record of success helping your profession in particular.
How would you know if you made the right choice? You take us for a test drive in the comfort of your own office and see if those you communicate with have the smarts to help someone like you. 
Now, how do you communicate without getting fully involved? You look on our website and see if we have anything you can do for free and take us for a spin. The whole idea is to get your interest up on our company and whether or not it will fit your needs.
Measurable Solutions, Inc. allows you to attend a free one-on-one webinar that gives enough information to jump start your business. It will be totally tailored to your needs and of course we are trying to build up your interest in us as both a consulting-training company and education source. We also have inexpensive online courses where you will get even more practical business solutions plus contact with one of our consultants through our system of management education.
Do as many as you want and then call us when you feel we are the right match for you. Then we’ll introduce you to some of our top clients in your profession so that you can get a second or even third opinion. Some of their successes might startle you and make you believe that they are miracle workers but they started out right where you are now. I’m sure they will be able to answer any other doubts you might have.
Go ahead, browse our website at, watch our videos, read our successesand then call for your free webinar or do an online course. 
Looking forward to helping you!

Anti-parasitic Raw Foods

Ginger Mint Green SmoothieWhat are parasites? 

Parasites are organisms that derive nourishment and protection from other living organisms known as hosts. They may be transmitted from animals to humans, from humans to humans, or from humans to animals. Several parasites have emerged as significant causes of foodborne and waterborne illness. These organisms live and reproduce within the tissues and organs of infected human and animal hosts, and are often excreted in feces. 

Parasites can live within the intestines for years without causing any symptoms. When they do, symptoms include the following:

  • Fatigue

  • Abdominal pain

  • Diarrhea

  • Nausea or vomiting

  • Gas or bloating

  • Dysentery (loose stools containing blood and mucus)

  • Rash or itching around the rectum or vulva

  • Stomach pain or tenderness

  • Feeling tired

  • Weight loss

  • Passing a worm in your stool

Is there a remedy?

Eat an abundance of raw foods considered “anti-parasitic,” such as cabbage and onions, garlic, pineapple, pumpkin seeds, almonds, figs, blackberries, papaya, pomegranate, ginger, hot peppers, radishes, coconut oil, and cloves. Implement fasting as well, as an overall body cleanse.

It’s also recommended to exclude honey and dried fruit from your diet when treating for parasites.

On a raw diet you have a better chance of keeping a clean, alkaline bloodstream and a healthier intestinal terrain to discourage parasites from sticking around. The name of the game: If you want to get rid of and stay rid of parasites, become a poor host!

  • Apple cider vinegar, a tablespoon per 8 ounces of pure water to help alkaline your body
  • Fresh ginger root- boiled into a tea or included in your food, like in a stir fry
  • Fresh garlic, a natural microbe fighter
  • Oil of oregano, which is anti microbial
  • Turmeric, which is highly anti inflammatory
  • Coconut, coconut, coconut!  Another great use for coconut is soothing an upset stomach as it helps maintain intestinal flora
  • A probiotic supplement, one not sourced from dairy or soy and not containing yeasts
  • Add papaya and pineapple in moderation, to provide bromelain, an enzyme which aids in digestion
  • Focus on copious leafy greens, and possibly a bit less fruit, temporarily, as many bacteria tend to feed on sugar.

In addition, if your stomach is feeling particularly sore, you may want to focus on steaming your veggies for a few days simply to make them easier to digest. 

I have a powerful raw food blender that I put a combination of kale, ginger, raw cocoa powder, pineapple, spirulina, chlorella, apple,pure water and some stevia to sweeten the taste. Most times it turns out tasting like ginger ale and of course it’s all raw and I have the fiber of the whole foods.

Can too much nutritional yeast cause gout?


question.gif - 1.4 KI sprinkle nutritional yeast on or in most of the foods that I prepare for myself at home (soups, sauces, steamed veggies, salads, etc.). Is there such a thing as too much nutritional yeast in one’s diet, or is it pretty much harmless?

answer.gif - 1.3 KModerate amounts of Red Star Vegetarian Support Formula nutritional yeast not only taste good but can add many valuable nutrients to our diet, such as folic acid; B-complex vitamins, including vitamin B12; and several important minerals and amino acids. However, large amounts of nutritional yeast used on a daily basis is not wise. A healthful vegan diet requires the inclusion of a variety of wholesome foods. Reliance on one particular item, no matter how beneficial, can establish a nutritional imbalance. The same is true of nutritional supplements — too much of a good thing isn’t good. Nutritional yeast is both a food and a nutritional supplement.

Nutritional yeast is high in purines. Large quantities of purines in the diet create an abundance of uric acid, which has been associated with several ailments, including gout. Furthermore, overreliance on a single food in the diet may eventually cause a sensitivity or possibly even an allergy to that food.

The recommended daily amount of nutritional yeast is approximately 2 tablespoons of large flakes, 1 1/2 tablespoons of miniflakes, or 1 heaping tablespoon of powder. Occasionally having larger servings than this should not pose a problem, but on a regular basis it would be smart to stay closer to these guidelines.
