The Godfather of Fitness

We lost a pioneer recently, a man who has had a positive influence on our health and the health of the world. Perhaps the younger of us may only recognize him as the star of an infomercial selling juicers. Jack LaLanne’s television show implored and entertained housewives to exercise and become healthier. He is credited with bringing the concept of fitness and exercise to the masses. He opened a national chain of health clubs. He was a chiropractor that taught millions how to heal themselves with diet and exercise Click here for the full article.

A Day Of Simple Health

Ten years ago this month I would have never used the word simple to describe my health. My personal health was anything but simple. In fact it was exactly the opposite. My health was complicated, confusing, sad and certainly painful but it was not simple. Then through a series of events I came across some life changing, life saving information that unimaginable to me would lead me to reclaim my health. I spent two years mastering twelve laws of health that made all the difference in reclaiming my health and preventing further disease. I must say they were the two most intense years of my life as I spent countless of hours studying the subject of health and wellness and diligently applying every bit of information I was learning. Today I enjoy simple health. Gone are the days that I did not know what macro nutrients and micro nutrients are or how much protein I should consume or how to balance my hormones naturally. I am no longer at the mercy of conflicting health studies that only increase skepticism. Nor am I sick and desperate making me vulnerable to the pharmaceutical commercials promising relief of one symptom in exchange for an unbelievable twenty other drug induced symptoms. Instead I became a critical health thinker and am completely in charge of my own health care. I make the decisions on what I should do or not do concerning my health and I have never looked back.

Living with Depression

Most people feel sadness or minor depression at some point in their lives. This can be a natural and temporary response to situations or events. For some people though, this can continue for a period of time. Situation depression is an adjustment disorder “triggered by an outside stress and generally goes away once the person has adapted to the situation” according to WebMD.com.

The Formula for Success

It’s January-the time of year that many of us make resolutions-changes that we are absolutely committed to in 2011. Or maybe you decided that you didn’t want to make a resolution this year because you always lose momentum early and feel that you have failed. I am going to be discussing a strategy to help you rethink what success means to you. The strategy is to monitor our movement through the stages of change-not just the end goal. Just moving through the stages of change into action is a great success. Also, I am using the word goals rather than resolutions because we can come close to reaching goals with resolutions we are entering an either-or space. Thinking about the changes we want to make in terms of goals recognizes that we take actions towards targets rather than being firmly resolved to either do something or not do something.

Surveillance or Persuasion through Observation

A few hours after the attempted assassination of Arizona Congressional Representative Gabrielle Giffords (Dem.), her fellow Arizonan, Representative Jeff Flake (Rep.), said in a local radio interview, “What you see on the cable shows, sometimes, is a lot of bickering back and forth but I have to say that’s more in front of the cameras. Behind the cameras, there’s not as much vitriol.” We behave differently when we know we are being watched. Click here for the full article.

Mastering Simple Health

In my journey to reclaiming my health there were many opportunities to become discouraged. I was in the worse shape of my life and there were multiple things wrong with my body. At first I was reading, learning and applying as many things as I could with no specific order. I was drinking more water, exercising, etc. but I did not have a strong health and wellness protocol in place. As I learned one thing after another I continued to make the changes to my life that I thought necessary in order to reclaim my health. Click here for the full article.
