If you live in America, you have become numb to all the commercials for drug ads.  I now can’t even pick up a magazine without 50% of it being filled with drug ads.  Last time I checked, I can’t just walk into the local drug store and buy any of the drugs they are advertising without a prescription from a conventional doctor.  With that said, why is the pharmaceutical industry targeting us with ads of things we can not obtain without a doctor visit who then must prescribe them to us if they feel we could benefit from them? Those who know me, know I’m not into drugs. I’m into medicine.  The difference is, medicine doesn’t leave you with a hangover or feeling worse than you started.  Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food. — Hippocrates, father of medicine, 431 B.C.

I heard something the other day that resonated with me.  A man went on a quest for religion and came across many religions that ask you to leave all or most of your “possessions”.  The theory behind that is that with no “possessions”, you have no need to upgrade those possessions to possession 2.0. You have no need to keep up with the Jones’ or feel like you are missing something if you were suddenly left without those things.  Pills are the same way.  If you are constantly told by commercials (The new parents to many children in America) that you need such pills for any ailment, feeling, ache, pain, anxiety, condition or dis-ease, you are left feeling empty if you were suddenly told by a real health care professional to stop taking those drugs.  It’s like asking the 400 pound client, “who would you be if you were not 400 pounds”? They usually look bewildered.  So, ask yourself, “who would you be if you started taking medicine and stopped taking those drugs”?

Paleo guru from Balanced Bites gets her weekly tune up from John @ HWN – Chatham, NJ

Balancing your entire system using two BOSU balls


Using Swiss Balls, stability balls, or two BOSU balls is a very effective way to challenge the entire nervous system.  In order to correctly fire your nervous system, it needs a little bit of a challenge in balance or coordination.  The balls have a 360 degree option of movement.  With this open pattern available, the body is left to counter balance any tipping or leaning the balls may do.  Squatting on a stability ball is one of hardest movements you can challenge your body with.  After doing this, you will feel like you have just squatted with 500 pounds on your back.   I would not ever try on your own because a slip and fall is very possible.

You have an aspirin deficiency, not a headache

Treating headaches by not masking the symptom

I’m being somewhat facetious, but I’m certain that this statement will soon be mainstream in the medical community. I assure you that your body doesn’t have an aspirin deficiency. Pharmacuticals are a very new phenomenon to human evolution and we somehow survived without any drugs for about 3,000,000 years. Most people don’t realize that headaches are a stress response to many different things. Hydration, caffeine withdrawal, nicotine withdrawal, hangovers (dehydration and toxic overload), environmental toxins (perfumes), sinus congestion, hunger, lack of sleep, prescription drug use, menstruation, food allergies, food additives, food preservatives (MSG), herbicides, pesticides, rodenticides, fungicides, withdrawal from any drug (both prescription and non prescribed), psychological and emotional stress, eye strain, and the list goes on. If you notice that ALL of the above causes of headaches are completely avoidable through simple lifestyle management. Having successfully treated thousands of clients headaches (without the use of drugs of course), I have demonstrated to clients that living with the 4-Doctors principle, you can keep headaches from ever coming back. This includes clients who were told that they needed to remain on headache drugs for the rest of their lives for migraines.

Emotional Freedom Technique and it’s long term effects

My very good friend just wrote about her experience with a session we had to work on her damaging thoughts that were ultimately keeping her from being mentally and physically healthy. You can read about her experience here: Monday Motivation: I used to hate my thighs.  So many people don’t realize how their thoughts are physically real and can harm your body if you don’t pay close attention to your recurring thoughts.  I use a simple sheet of paper where I have the individual answer only two questions:

I Am:

&

I Am Not:

When someone can answer these two questions, they will quickly identify where the main problem is.  The list may have 5-15 items on each question, but most of the time, people write down a few of the same answers which tends to be their recurring thought patterns.  Example: I am: strong, willing to change, looking to modify my life, do new things, try new sports…. All of these comments are saying they want to get out of their same situation and do anything that is not what they have been doing.  This tells me that they hate their current situation which could involve a spouse/significant other, or living with a family member they are looking to get away from.  I describe this process as peeling the onion.  There are many layers to this onion and each one has to unfold as the individual is ready to confront.  EFT should only be attempted by a trained professional due to the complex nature of emotional health.  I usually recommend seeking the help from someone who has mastered themselves before they “try” to fix you.  When I began working on clients with EFT, 90% of my clients were psychologist professionals.  This was a rude awakening to what is really going on in the mental health world.  If psychologist were not mentally healthy, what were they doing treating patients?  After many sessions with clients crying on my treatment table, I have learned that everyone is always healing and just needs the impetus to fully heal with something as rapid as EFT.

You wear your truth suit

Be kind to your body

After one of my clients told me she was upset that her son is an alcoholic, I told her to lead by example. She exclaimed, “I’m not an alcoholic”! I then asked her, how often she drinks. She said, “Every day”…

These simple things are easy to see in people when you are trained in what to look for. I see a large belly, I know the client is eating wheat with just about every meal. I see a droopy face, I know the client has a fried thyroid and has adrenal fatigue. I see a client in pain, I know a client who is burning the candle at both ends. Being a holistic lifestyle coach allows me to probe the real reason clients are trying to work themselves to death is usually from wanting other peoples approval. “I’d like to lose ten pounds”… I ask, “for who”? The blank stare I usually get is due to hitting a nerve with them. All I ask is to wear your truth suit proudly with every decision you make. It’s your body and your true temple. Respect it the way you would want to be respected by it.
