Diabetes What you Need to Know

Years ago I was at an evening social function when a woman came in with her two young grandchildren. She sat at the table with her plate of food but seemed dazed. She fumbled around trying to cut her food and acted as though she could not see in front of her. I went over to assist and found out that she was diabetic and had not eaten all day! Her grandchildren sat and watched in fear as we quickly got her to drink some orange juice. She explained that she “just didn’t have time to eat”. Click here for the full article.

Omega 9 Fatty Acids

I have dedicated my April, May and June blogs to writing about what I call the Omega Factor. Understanding the differences between Omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids will make all the difference in your personal pursuit of reclaiming your health and preventing disease. I have covered Omega 6 and 3 fatty acids in my April and May blogs. We know Omega 6 fatty acids are dangerously over consumed by Americans leading to inflammation in the body and a host of other ill consequences. Therefore we must lower our intake of Omega 6 fatty acids. We also know that Americans are not consuming enough of Omega 3 fatty acids which are healthy fats the body needs. Therefore we must increase Omega 3 fatty acids. Click here for the full article.

What did you Eat Today

My health classes, guest speaking commitments, church activities and certainly through every day life experiences affords me the opportunity to speak to many people about their own personal pursuit of reclaiming their health and preventing disease. One of the things I observe in my conversations with people about the subject of health is that often the person becomes consumed with giving up unhealthy foods and yet fails to introduce nutrition to their body. Abstaining from unhealthy food is of highest importance. One cannot reclaim their health or prevent disease as long as they continue to consume dead food void of nutrition. However, as good as removing the unhealthy foods from your daily menu may be, introducing nutritious, healthy and living foods is equally important. I have many friends who call to tell me that they have stop consuming soda, fried foods, fast foods, excessive caffeine, processed foods like candy bars and pastries yet they still are fatigued or they haven’t seen the progress I have experienced. As I interview them for more information I find one common thread between them. They stopped doing all the wrong things or at least some but they never have quite accomplished introducing the right things Click here for the full article.

Kas Winters Don t buy that Toy

Have you ever spent money on a toy only to find that the child who received it had more fun with the box? Does your child ever sit, surrounded by toys and complain that he or she is bored and that there is nothing to do? My thirty-five year-old son recently said that my slogan should be, “You’ll never need to buy another toy again.” That’s a great idea. Of course, he grew up in an atmosphere where there was on-going creative play to stimulate imagination and provide experiences for hands-on learning. Our children did have some toys; but mostly, we spent time doing activities that were, quite honestly, more fun than many toys. These had the added value of building self-reliance and other traits that serve them well as adults. Click here for the full article.

In the coaching world, these behaviors or issues are referred to as tolerations. Click here for the full article.

Lets Work on the Right Thing

“Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do, than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails." - Mark Twain Click here for the full article.
