How does Animal protein compare to plant-based protein?
Hundreds of scientific studies reveal there is quite a difference as to how the body responds to animal protein versus plant based protein. Read More
Did you know the act of eating protein doesn’t build muscle? Simply eating protein will not build or grow muscles. However, it will provide the nourishment muscles need to strengthen and grow as a result of exercise. Muscles are toned and improved by exercise if the protein nutrients are present in the body. Eating a full plate of chicken every day will not automatically cause muscles to grow on their own.
I’m sure by now in this day and age, you have heard about the importance of protein. Did you know not all proteins are equal as far as health benefits and disease risks? For the next few blogs, I’d like to discuss protein and make you aware of some significant issues that can affect your health.
What you don’t know can harm you.
How many times have doctors and the medical industry been wrong and made mistakes? Wrong enough times to be the #3 reason people die each year in the United States. Only heart disease and cancer kill more people. Accidental death from hospital stays and medication side effects killed 146,571 people in a 2016 according to a report from the CDC. Stroke killed 140,323, Alzheimer’s disease 110,561, diabetes 79,535, influenza and pneumonia 57,062, kidney disease 49,959, and intentional self-harm (suicide) killed 44,193 people. Sepsis is ranked the 11th major cause of death, liver disease #12, Parkinson’s #13, and assault #14.
Look closely at what this reports. Its not until reason #14, where one person deliberately choosing to assault another, results in death. Every other reason is related to health, and the 3rd top reason is a result of being in the hospital or needing medications.
What this tells me: Stay healthy – Stop going to doctors for health “management” – and if I do get sick, use natural therapies – avoid the hospital and medications at all cost. Now of course in the event of a car accident or lost limb, yes of course I’ll go the hospital. But for everyday care and eduction, NO!
The second week of April is Arizona Bike Week. Motorcycles and people from all over the country descend upon the Phoenix metro area to bask in the warm spring weather; share a passion for motorcycles; make new friends; eat and drink; and for some, to party. The choices made this week bring consequences – either good or bad.
I generally do not drink alcohol. I might enjoy a glass of wine from time to time, but typically I steer clear of intoxicating beverage. I consider myself an inspirational coach and athlete more than anything. I like feeling good and looking good. This may not sound humble, and I’m not saying it to brag; but I love, not looking my age. It reinforces my life choices, to live healthy, and grows my desire to continue when people are shocked by my real age.
I made poor choices.
Work. Family. House. Transportation. Cooking. Exercise. Computers. Social Media. Entertainment. News. OVERLOAD!
Overload of information in daily life – Basically, life overload.
How much information can we handle? Can too much information be bad for our health and well being? How much is too much?
Have you ever noticed how often we have to re-learn something, just to keep the status quo? For example, every time a new cellphone model is released, we have to learn how to use the new features. Or every time a software update is released, we have to learn the new system. Learning how to use a smart television can test our patience. Even learning how to use Facebook or a new app, bring frustrating challenges.
Are these deliberately designed this way?
We’ve been brainwashed and sold into believing medications solve medical issues. They don’t. They treat the symptoms of a health imbalance, but don’t stop the problem of why the issue developed in the first place.
The pharmaceutical industry drives medical policy in hospitals, education curriculum at medical schools, research funding at universities, and the treatment of disease. If you suffer from sinusitis, inflammation of the sinuses, and your doctor gives you an anti-inflammatory medication to treat the inflammation. He/she is prescribing medication to treat the swelling, but not to address the issue of what caused the swelling initially.
The whole core of western medicine is built on a faulty foundation, on the theory that germs and bacteria cause disease; originating from Louie Pasteur, which is not true.
Do you feel tired or lazy? …often? What if I told you, being lazy isn’t your fault?
How would it alter your outlook on your future? Would you feel hope once again? Would you like to become un-lazy and experience increased energy? It is not completely your fault if you feel tired or lazy. You are being targeted.
If I told you there was a sinister plot to keep you un-motivated and unhealthy, would you believe me? Now that sounds just too far fetched; like a science fiction movie, right?
What if I showed you the evidence; how much of the food we eat, beverages we drink, and household products we use, have slowly entered our body and brain; and have caused great harm.
Many of the poor and needy in our country are at a great disadvantage, struggling daily to get ahead with little or no hope in sight. What they and the majority of all other people don’t realize is this: our brain’s capacity for learning, memory, and innovation has been slowly decreasing over the last several decades. Is this slowing normal for an aging brain?
We are still discovering how our environment and food choices over time, have diminished the brains ability to function. Millions of people report experiencing brain fog, grogginess, difficulty learning, attention deficit, depression and other issues. It doesn’t have to be this way.
