Diet and Disease by Dr. Mercola

https://dietagainstdisease.com/

I stopped writing on this block almost 2 years ago when I was introduced to Dr. Mercola and his work on diet and disease. I feel that his research and articles are the best way to get the necessary information to transition to a healthy lifestyle. Go ahead and discover he truth.

Apple Cider Vinegar

apple-cider-vinegar-600x391Went to a restaurant last night to celebrate my granddaughter’s graduation from Grade 1. I ate vegetables and noodles, soup and salad. A pretty safe meal. However, when I went to walk out my left big toe was acting up making it hard to walk. I can only assume that there was MSG in the food causing arthritic pain.

This morning I woke up with the same pain. So I juiced 4 apples and added 2 tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar. Now it was a bit tart but boy did it turn on the energy. I then did a full 45 minute workout with no pain! The magic of Apple Cider Vinegar.

Chiropractic Christmas

Inspiration RightT’was the day before Christmas,
but there was no cheer.
No jingle bells jingled, no sound of reindeer.
The word had got out that Santa was sick.
There’d be no friendly visit from jolly St. Nick. The people were sad; no gaiety sounded.For Christmas had come, but Santa was grounded.

He walked down the street,
and what should he see?
On a small sign was printed, Family Life Chiropractic

Now, Santa was not one to like a new tactic,
But all else had failed, so he’d try Chiropractic.
He entered the office and saw at a glance
In a place such as this illness hasn’t a chance.

For all were smiling; the music was snappy,
With all the patients contented and happy.
In a very short time, to judge by the clock,
He was in the adjusting room, talking to Doc.

“It must be the hurry, the tension and all.
I simply can’t seem to get on the ball.
Life used to be easy, just toys, guns and whistles.
Now I have to dodge fall-out,
space ships and missiles.”

And Doc, take a look at the size of this pack!
Have you any idea what it does to my back?
Poor Santa was miserable; just barely able
With the help of the doctor, to get to the table.

The doctor was gentle. Without fuss or tussle
He examined the vertebrae
and relaxed the muscles.
He spotted the trouble, and then with a click,
Started aligning the ailing St. Nick.

And Santa felt aches and pains slipping away.
In no time at all he began to feel gay.
The air was a tingle with a new fallen snow.
And a healthy Kris Kringle was rarin’ to go.

As he went out the door, he threw all a kiss.
Why, it has been centuries since
he’d felt as good as this!
Then once more he shouldered the bag full of toys.
His heart overflowing with true Christmas joys.

So, may we, your friends, echo this cheer?

Merry Christmas to you
and to all a good year!

I’ve Fallen Down and Can’t Get Up by Rolly Polly

image descriptionThere is an urgency for people to realize that when they eat toxic foods they are going to gain weight and have health problems. When I was doing the promotion and marketing for my Chiropractic clinic I would write local newspaper articles with titles like “I’ve Fallen Down and Can’t Get Up” for chiropractic and spinal decompression and “Certain Foods are Driving Children Crazy” for nutritional products my partners and I carried. We had a monthly workshop usually on Weight Loss and I created a PowerPoint presentation for that. I also did patient photos and testimonials that I put into a press book and left in the clinic for others to read.

Another new patient attractor was a line of whole food products that transformed patients to a healthy lifestyle. Weight loss was the key factor but what the patients also got was more energy and a desire to exercise which we all know is crucial to a patient’s overall success.

I’ve recently come across a nutritional system that has all the above prepackaged for me and I’m doing this type of promotion to transform family and friends to a healthy lifestyle. It can also be another source of income for any health care professional, Chiropractor, Physical Therapist, MD, Massage Therapist, Athletic Trainer, Life Coach, or individual wanting to be an entrepreneur.

I will speak to anyone on the subjects of health and nutrition. Leave a comment and I will get back to you.

Ten Commandments of Health

Image

1. Help yourself to health. Form habits that will fight for you, not against you.

2. Do not expect to have good health without effort. Health must be earned.

3. Adopt firm policy that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

4. Make food your servant, not your master. Eat for strength.

5. Breathe deeply, for air is life’s first requisite and nature’s best tonic.

6. Exercise for health, not for strength. Exercise sends clean blood  to the brain.

7. Seek sunshine, for sunshine and disease are always enemies.

8. Water, use plentifully daily; warm for cleanliness, cold for tonic.

9. Keep a clear conscience, for true rest is mental as well as physical.

10. Work planfully, read much and play often. Play keeps old age at bay.

Human Peak Performance

In order to understand human performance, you should study automotive performance or horsepower. How does one increase horsepower in a car engine?

There are three interactive components of horsepower, air, fuel and exhaust. If you want to increase horsepower you have to increase the air flow, then you can increase the fuel amount and then you have to increase the exit flow of exhaust.

Horsepower

If any one of the three is restricted then the horsepower will not increase. So if you want to hot rod a car or motorcycle, the first thing you would do is replace the air filter system with a free flowing system. Then you can adjust the amount of fuel accordingly (on new cars you have to change the computer settings to properly balance air, fuel and exhaust). Then with increased air and fuel you can’t have a restricted exhaust system so you change that out for a free flowing exhaust or dual exhaust and now you are really increasing the performance of your car or motorcycle and you would probably increase the gas mileage as well.

Now, what does this have to do with Peak Performance of the human body. Well it has three interactive components just like an automobile or perhaps the automobile is really a mechanical human.

Peak PerformanceThe three interactive components of the human body are oxygen (air), food (fuel) and elimination (exhaust).

If you want to increase your performance you have to take in more oxygen by exercising, then increase the quality of your food, and then you better improve the elimination of the byproducts of combustion by elimination. Eating foods with a lot of fiber helps elimination. Eating foods that are of high quality is the most important component of health and performance.

Now what is the fastest and most destructive way to destroy an automotive engine? You add a pound of sugar to the gas tank each time you fill up and the sugar will clog the fuel lines. Run an engine with sugar in the fuel and it will eventually have to be rebuilt from top to bottom.

And what is the fastest and most destructive way to destroy the human body? Add sugar to it’s stomach and run it on sugary foods. In a short time that body will lose performance, tire out, and eventually fail. I understand that the one substance among many that causes cancer is the consumption of sugar. In fact when the medicos are testing to see if a person has cancer in their organs they have the patient drink a sugar solution with radioactive dye in it and the cancer cells are attracted to the sugar and show up on the CT scan.

So cancer cells love sugar. Or is it that sugar causes cancer? To consume sugar or not to consume, that is the question.
