Consider yourself as an orange.  Only what is really inside can come out.  If you fill your mind with thoughts of serenity, positivity, strength, courage and compassion, when someone squeezeds you, this is the only juice that can flow.                - Robin Sharma

  1. Goal Setting:  Where are you going and how are you going to get there!!
  2. Nutrition and What is Really Takes to Lose One Pound of Fat: Servings and portions and all that technical stuff we need to know so we are not confused by that darn 5 pounds of fluid that ebbs and flows like a blinking tide!  The more you know the more you are in control!!
  3. Time Management:  How are we going to fit this into our already busy, busy day!!  And like It - no love it!!
  4. Motivation: Remind me!!  Why is it we are doing this again??

  6. Success Programs are for Life: You bet they are!!

 One hour Outdoors and in the Studio: We will do a combination of: Cardio: (you will need runners - No, No!  We aren't going to jog/run - at least not right away!!) [unless you are doing already.]  

Strength Training:  using Exercise/Stability Balls (you have to buy - if you don't already own one that gets batted and moved around the house - because yes, there is homework!!) and Resistance Bands (which I will provide and will also be used for your homework)

Flexibility: Okay - relax - enjoy!!  Homework: Absolutely!!  Making healthy nutritional choices and adding exercise into your life on a daily basis in nothing more than creating a habit!

Things to accomplish before Start Working

Posted on April 17, 2020 at 12:30 AM Comments comments (0)

Like most business owners and entrepreneurs, you’ve got a list of things to accomplish before you actually start working:

 

Check your email and follow up on any time-sensitive emails and internal messages

Review today’s schedule of video conferences and team meetings

Catch up on industry news and important events that have an impact on your business

Go over metrics from recent promotions and look for ways to improve performance...

 

You get the picture.

 

But did you notice that when you read a list like that ^^^, it’s much easier to imagine yourself actually achieving those tasks, versus when it’s jumbled into a block of text? Like...

 

Today I have to check my email, review my schedule for the day, catch up with the sales team on the status of their weekly metrics, walk the dog, follow up with Jim to about the client proposal, feed the cat, check Google Analytics for funnel performance metrics and see where we can optimize, and take the kids to soccer.

 

You probably didn’t even read all that ^^^, and I don’t blame you. Because it’s easy to skip over important copy if nothing looks important.

 

Well...

 

...the same can be said for your sales messages.

 

And if your emails and landing pages aren’t converting as well as they should be, you’ve just added another thing to your to-do list.

 

My Sales-Boosting Bullets Playbook breaks down the essential elements your copy must have to get your customers’ eyes on the most important details of your products or services.

 

Because when you create bulleted lists of information for your prospects to read you:

 

Build curiosity and a sense of urgency in your reader

Get right to the point by stripping away the "fluff" that makes copy too long

Focus their attention on a skimmable, time-saving list of benefits that your customers can immediately connect with

 

If you’re not using bullets, you’re making it too hard for your customers to know that YOU have what they want.

Potential for Massive Closures to Fitness Industry

For Immediate Release just received this. 

 

Potential for Massive Closures & Bankruptcies to

 

Fitness Industry Amid COVID-19 Pandemic

 

 

+ Dealing with Government-Sanctioned Closures and no Cash Flow,

FIC Members Seek Temporary Rent Relief

Edmonton – (March 30, 2020) Fitness Industry Council of Canada (FIC), the trade association representing over 5,000 fitness businesses who serve over 4 million members nationwide, is issuing an urgent appeal to government at all levels across Canada for emergency support.

 

In the wake of unprecedented fitness business closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic, FIC members are asking provincial governments for help in the form of rent abatement until facilities can responsibly be reopened. With clubs closed and membership dues suspended, many facility owners will have difficulty paying end-of-month operational expenses, including rent, and seek temporary abatement to help them financially survive.

 

“Our members responsibly agreed to close their doors to limit the spread of COVID-19 earlier this month,” noted Scott Wildeman, President of FIC. “However, as the timeline around business returning to normal becomes less and less clear, we are pleading with government to assist our members from closing permanently. If fitness clubs are all forced into bankruptcy, the social impact to society will be devastating,” added Wildeman.

 

Health and wellness have never been more important. Physical fitness helps support a strong immune system, which is critical to staving off or recovering from COVID-19. Studies have shown that getting lots of sleep, eating healthy foods, and regular exercise are cornerstones of today’s recommended best practices, especially as we traverse the unknown landscape of global pandemic. The fitness professionals of FIC are committed to helping foster a healthy population – both physically and mentally.

 

“Members of FIC are united in this appeal. The fitness industry needs urgent assistance in order to survive. With rents due imminently, owners and operators of fitness facilities across Canada will be reaching out to MPPs and MLAs to press for relief,” noted Wildeman.

 

FIC members recognize that government’s initial priority is focused on ensuring Canadians have enough money to pay their household bills and feed their families. Yet important community businesses like gyms and fitness clubs will be critically important for Canadians when they’re able to get back to regular day-to-day routines and regular physical activity.

virtual vacations 8 ways to travel without leaving home

Posted on March 27, 2020 at 9:30 AM Comments comments (0)

love sharing what's new out there.  Now we are home here's ideas for you

Travelzoo's mission has always been to get members off the couch and exploring the world — but if there was ever a time to stay on the sofa, it is now. Let's face it, we're all going to be spending a lot more time at home. And while travel may be out of the question for the present, we're still dreaming of our next adventure and all the places we hope to get to soon.

Until then, virtual vacations (#VirtualVacay) are open to everyone with an imagination and an internet connection. Whether you need an antidote to cabin fever or are pining for the flavours of a favourite destination, here are eight ways to travel without leaving home.

 

1. Get an up-close view of the world

With Google Street View, you can visit famous sites and monuments while lounging in your pyjamas. Immerse yourself in history at Rome’s Colosseum, admire the view of the Kohala Coast in Hawaii or stroll through the opulent interiors at the Palace of Versailles in France. For more adventure, check out Google Maps' virtual treks. You can go from climbing to Everest Base Camp in Nepal to diving in the Galapagos Islands of Peru to searching for polar bears in Churchill, Manitoba — in just a matter of clicks.

 

2. Take a virtual museum tour

The world’s best galleries and museums are just a few clicks away with Google Arts & Culture, a platform that allows you to take digital tours of legendary places from the Guggenheim in New York City to the Louvre in Paris. We also love the free online tours at the British Museum, The Louvre, The Smithsonian and The Vatican, Closer to home, The Virtual Museum of Canada bills itself as the largest digital source of stories and experiences shared by Canada’s museums and heritage organizations. You can even see iconic art pieces up close. The best part? It's all free.

 

3. Cook meals from your favourite destinations

Travel and eating are one of life's greatest matches, so what better way to satisfy your wanderlust than by feasting on food from a place you're longing to return to or to see for the first time? Explore the globe from your kitchen by sourcing recipes from the corner of the world you're craving. You can also take online cooking classes such as Nonna Live, where you'll learn to make classics from an Italian grandma. Free lessons have cropped up during this downtime, including daily Delish.com cooking videos for parents and children, and Kitchen Quarantine, Instagram lessons from Michelin-starred chef Massimo Bottura.

 

4. Learn a new language — or research your mother tongue

Duolingo allows you to spend just a few minutes a day learning a foreign language, in a fun game style. It’s free and there’s even an app for kids. You could also have a go at a new hobby. Maybe it’s time for you to get started on your family tree: Ancestry has a free trial, giving you access to billions of family records. Who knows, your next trip could be to the land of your ancestors.

 

5. Explore UNESCO World Heritage Sites

It’s not quite the same as being there, but you can visit some of the world’s most celebrated heritage sites without leaving home. The UNESCO website has a list of 1,121 sites that are considered to have “outstanding universal value.” Many of these cultural sites, such as India's Taj Mahal, England's Stonehenge and Peru's Machu Picchu, have their own virtual tours that enable you to see detailed panoramic images while reading all about these fascinating places to appreciate why they are so important.

 

6. Visit a virtual zoo or aquarium

Hippos, monkeys and penguins can be viewed through webcams, virtual tours and “home safaris.” Visit Ripley's Aquarium of Canada in Toronto to keep an eye on the sharks. The San Diego Zoo is livestreaming a number of animals on its website, including koalas, pandas, giraffes and polar bears. You can also bring exotic animals like snow leopards into your living room with a selection of live video streams from Australian zoos. The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden is livestreaming a "home safari show" on its Facebook page each weekday at 3 p.m. ET. Each episode will feature a different animal and an accompanying educational kids activity that can be done from home.

 

7. Walk in the park — virtually

We may not be able to visit Canada's national and provincial parks in person, but you can still get back to nature (from a distance) with virtual tours and videos. Discover the beaches of Pacific Rim National Park and the magnificent peaks of Banff National Park via Google Earth, watch a live view of Algonquin Provincial Park and let a guide take you on a video tour of Gros Morne National Park. For even more park inspiration, we put together a roundup of our favourite videos and virtual park tours in Canada and the U.S.

 

8. Start planning your next trip

Just because you've had to shelve your immediate travel plans doesn't mean you can't look forward to a future trip. Often the happiest part of travel takes place before you ever pack your bag — reading about destinations, searching for hotels and deciding on what to do once you get there. If nothing else, it will tide you over during this lockdown period and give you something fun to look forward to when this is all over. Check out Travelzoo's Instagram, Facebook and Twitter feeds for #VirtualVacay ideas. You can also get inspired by our fully refundable vacations, flexible trips and flexible hotel deals — all designed to let you book with peace of mind.

I would like to share Peng You's message he gave to the Taiji membership. Feel very important for all.

 

From member of the Stanford hospital board. This is their feedback for now on Corona virus: The new Coronavirus may not show sign of infection for many days. How can one know if he/she is infected? By the time they have fever and/or cough and go to the hospital, the lung is usually 50% Fibrosis and it's too late. Taiwan experts provide a simple self-check that we can do every morning. Take a deep breath and hold your breath for more than 10 seconds. If you complete it successfully without coughing, without discomfort, stiffness or tightness, etc., it proves there is no Fibrosis in the lungs, basically indicates no infection. In critical time, please self-check every morning in an environment with clean air. Serious excellent advice by Japanese doctors treating COVID-19 cases: Everyone should ensure your mouth & throat are moist, never dry. Take a few sips of water every 15 minutes at least. Why? Even if the virus gets into your mouth, drinking water or other liquids will wash them down through your throat and into the stomach. Once there, your stomach acid will kill all the virus. If you don't drink enough water more regularly, the virus can enter your windpipe and into the lungs. That's very dangerous. Please send and share this with family and friends. Take care everyone and may the world recover from this Coronavirus soon.

 

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT - CORONAVIRUS

 

1. If you have a runny nose and sputum, you have a common cold

 

2. Coronavirus pneumonia is a dry cough with no runny nose.

 

3. This new virus is not heat-resistant and will be killed by a temperature of just 26/27 degrees. It hates the Sun.

 

4. If someone sneezes with it, it takes about 10 feet before it drops to the ground and is no longer airborne.

 

5. If it drops on a metal surface it will live for at least 12 hours - so if you come into contact with any metal surface - wash your hands as soon as you can with a bacterial soap.

 

6. On fabric it can survive for 6-12 hours. normal laundry detergent will kill it.

 

7. Drinking warm water is effective for all viruses. Try not to drink liquids with ice.

 

8. Wash your hands frequently as the virus can only live on your hands for 5-10 minutes, but - a lot can happen during that time - you can rub your eyes, pick your nose unwittingly and so on

 

. 9. You should also gargle as a prevention. A simple solution of salt in warm water will suffice.

 

10. Can't emphasis enough - drink plenty of water!


Stay active within safe bondaries.  Walking is still best.

Discover The Secret To Unlocking Your Shoulders In Just Minutes So That You Can Get Back To Your Workouts & Pain Free Life�?�

Discover The Secret To Unlocking Your Shoulders In Just Minutes So That You Can Get Back To Your Workouts & Pain Free Life…

Former Shoulder Pain Sufferer Reveals “4 Strategies To Reduce Pain” and Prevent Injury From a Unique 3-Step Method That No One Else Will Tell You About.

By: Mike Westerdal, CPT, RKC

Powerlifter, Best Selling Fitness Author

and former sufferer of shoulder pain

 

Dear Friend,

 

 

It’s true, close to 40% of all injuries related to resistance training affect the shoulder, making it the number one cause of pain in the gym.

 

Doesn’t that make you wonder how some people are able to train with 100% effort month after month, without ever having to slow down due to a nagging injury caused by shoulder pain? And it doesn’t seem like they spend extra time warming up or have to limit their exercise selection?

 

If so, I’ll tell you how they do it.

4 Strategies to Avoid Shoulder Pain that were taught to me by injury specialist and exercise physiologist Rick Kaselj, MS.

STRATEGY TO AVOID SHOULDER PAIN #1

WARM UP THE MUSCLES & NOT JUST THE JOINT - Total warm up of all major muscle groups & joints is key 

- neck to toes.

Quick Fix: During your warm up add resistance to wake up the muscles of the shoulder, rotator cuff and shoulder blade so they are ready to protect and prevent a shoulder injury.

STRATEGY TO AVOID SHOULDER PAIN #2

DON’T GET STUCK IN THE TRADITIONAL SHOULDER PAIN CYCLE

TRADITIONAL SHOULDER PAIN MODEL

 

STEP 1: REST, ICE, DRUGS, SAFE

EXERCICES

At some point in your lifting career you come home and your shoulder just feels extra sore and you know something isn’t right so you take some anti-inflammatory pills and throw an ice pack on. It’s not a big deal and part of playing sports and training hard right? Hopefully in a few days it will be completely better, but usually some kind of discomfort or pain lingers. That’s no reason to miss a workout though. I know what’s on your mind, you can always avoid a few exercises that cause it to flare up or just train legs.

 

STEP 2: DOCTOR

Eventually this gets old and if it doesn’t feel better after a few weeks or months it’s probably time to visit the doctor to find out what’s going on. After using up a sick day and sitting for an hour in the waiting room it’s pretty annoying when the doctor tells you to rest, ice, and don’t do things that hurt. Seriously? If your insurance isn’t that great you’ll probably have to go back to your primary care doctor to get a referral to see a specialist. They’ll have you do an MRI which is super expensive. You’ll have to schedule another appointment for that though.

 

STEP 3: DIAGNOSIS

After the MRI you’ll get the diagnosis at your next appointment. How many appointments is that so far? I’ve lost track already…sigh

 

STEP 4: PHYSICAL THERAPY

You are advised to go to a physical therapist. If you’re in luck, your therapist has worked with athletes in the past. But who are we kidding? Most of the people in the center are not physically fit at all.

 

STEP 5: MISCELLANEOUS MODALITIES

Modalities you might be exposed to include hot packs, cold packs, ultrasound and electrical stimulation to name just a few.

 

STEP 6: STRETCHING AND STRENGTHENING

Once your insurance runs out or you think you know the stretches and strengthening exercises well enough you can continue with the rehab on your own time.

 

STEP 7: MRI

If it still doesn’t feel better it’s time for another MRI……cha-ching, the cost is really adding up fast.

 

STEP 8: PHYSICAL THERAPY, CORTISONE INJECTION, SURGERY

Next you can try more physical therapy or you can cover the symptoms with a cortisone shot that will numb the pain for a couple months. After that there’s always surgery, but something in your gut tells you that’s not what you really need. Listen to your instincts.

- Been through lots of shoulder pain done all the above.  

Suggests

TRATEGY TO AVOID SHOULDER PAIN #3

DEAL WITH THE ROOT CAUSE OF THE PROBLEM…NOT THE SYMPTOMS

- makes good sense.

“Neither Strengthening nor Stretching Will Help You Until The Shoulder Joint Has Been Reshaped Into a Pain Free Joint.”

While strengthening is important, it needs to be done when the shoulder joint has been reshaped into a pain-free shoulder joint. If you have not reshaped the shoulder joint into a pain-free joint, you are just adding more strength to a painful joint and making the problem worse. In time this stress leads to repetitive shoulder injuries, increased shoulder joint damage and shoulder pain.

 

In the next strategy I’ll share with you how to re-shape your shoulders so that when you strengthen them you will NOT be causing more damage.

 

STRATEGY TO AVOID SHOULDER PAIN #4

RESHAPING THE SHOULDER JOINT CAN ACTUALLY BE EASY (WITH THE SR3-METHOD)

......https://www.fixmyshoulders.com/

After improving the quality of life for my family, I became a “believer” in Rick and practically begged him to team up with Critical Bench and allow me the privilege of sharing his new Fix My Shoulder Pain System utilizing his trademarked SR3 Method.

 

WHAT IS THE SR3 METHOD?

This led to the creation of the SR3 Method which is based on one key concept: Reshaping your shoulder from a painful shoulder joint to a pain-free shoulder joint.

I know it sounds amazing but let me show you how you can do this for yourself and have your painful shoulder move into a pain free shoulder.

 

PART 1: ALIGNMENT

The first part of the SR3 method involves using the concept of alignment. In order to begin reshaping your shoulder you need to make sure your shoulder joint is in ideal centration – the best possible position. The SR3 method will show you how to do this.

PART 2: TISSUE QUALITY

The second part of the SR3 method is improving tissue quality. With ongoing pain and injuries the tissues change over time. This leads to the shoulder reshaping into a painful shoulder joint. This could cause dysfunction, less movement, poor circulation, less malleable muscles, stiffness around the shoulder joint and tight ligaments.

 

This all ends up affecting the positioning of the shoulder blade, leading to the shoulder blade changing its tilt. This biting tilt leads to the most common shoulder injury – a rotator cuff injury. The SR3 method will show you how to reposition this tilt and experience a pain free shoulder.

PART 3: ACTIVATION & ENDURANCE

Activation is turning on the right muscle in the shoulder to decrease the stress on the rotator cuff, provide stability to the shoulder joint and allow you to layer on strength to your shoulders.

 

Finally, and something that is often overlooked, is the concept of endurance when it comes to a shoulder pain relieving program. The reality is your shoulder muscles to be able to work for a long period of time in order to prevent the shoulder joint into reshaping into a painful shoulder joint again. By focusing on endurance you can ensure the shoulder joint muscles will hold the shoulder joint in a pain-free position after shoulder reshaping has occurred.

What are good foods to snack on?

A cardiologist is begging patients to avoid the high-fat keto diet because their cholesterol levels could skyrocket

Cardiologist Elizabeth Klodas says food can be like medicine for what ails us — and in some cases may replace drugs.

In her practice, she sometimes uses fiber-rich, cholesterol-lowering foods to help her patients get healthier without extra drugs.

But she says that going keto with lots of saturated fats can be dangerous and that patient "cholesterols can just go crazy" on the plan.

Visit INSIDER's homepage for more stories.

The high-fat, low-carb keto diet has been around for 100 years as a therapeutic treatment for epileptic seizures, but it's recently gained favor with celebrities and heath enthusiasts alike as a foolproof way to lose weight. The idea with keto is to shift the body into a state of fat-burning ketosis, by banishing nearly all carbs (no sweet apples or bread allowed) and fueling up on 70% to 80% fat every day.

The high-fat, low-carb keto diet has been around for 100 years as a therapeutic treatment for epileptic seizures, but it's recently gained favor with celebrities and heath enthusiasts alike as a foolproof way to lose weight. The idea with keto is to shift the body into a state of fat-burning ketosis, by banishing nearly all carbs (no sweet apples or bread allowed) and fueling up on 70% to 80% fat every day.

It's been tried by Hollywood stars including the Kardashians and Halle Berry, while Silicon Valley tech workers swear by its ability to lift their mental fog. Doctors are also starting to believe the plan holds promise for staving off diabetes. There's even evidence to suggest it could one day help some drugs better combat cancer.

 

Health experts are still cautious about recommending the plan across the board, however, not only because it's difficult to follow but more importantly because there isn't much long-term data about what it may do to heart health after years or decades of use. Cardiologists and kidney doctors are already expressing serious concerns about what they're seeing in practice when certain patients go high-fat.

 

Going low-carb can be bad for your heart

The cardiologist Elizabeth Klodas says not all of her patients have done well on the trendy plan.

 

"Stop. Stop!" she told Insider. "In my own practice, the people that have adopted it, their cholesterols can just go crazy."

She's not the only heart doctor to have pointed this out.

 

Ethan Weiss, a cardiologist who himself has become an ardent follower of a high-fat keto diet plan, says that while high cholesterol isn't a common issue with keto, it can happen.

 

"I think the vast majority of people who go on this diet will have no trouble with their cholesterol," Weiss told Business Insider last year. "But I'm not going to tell the people that do have trouble with their cholesterol that it's not a problem."

 

He sometimes suggests a high-fat keto plan to his patients working to manage diabetes, obesity, and other metabolic issues. But he's cautious about how and when he prescribes it, recommending what he calls a "heart healthy" keto, with lots of fatty fish, olive oil, nuts, and avocado in the mix.

Klodas said those were all healthful additions to any diet that she would endorse to her patients, too.

 

"It's not about high-fat, low-fat — it's good fat, bad fat," she said. "The oils in nuts and seeds, oils in fish, avocados, you don't have to worry about those. Those appear to be anti-inflammatory — they help cholesterol."

 

But evidence suggests people tend to fuel up on bacon, cream, and coconut oil when going keto instead of favoring unsaturated, healthy fats.

 

Perhaps this is why studies show that people who follow low-carb diets tend to have a higher risk of death and, in particular, tend to die from coronary heart disease far more often than people who eat more carbohydrates. (Not everyone who goes low-carb will restrict their carb intake enough to enter fat-burning ketosis, however.)

Trying a 30 Days exercise or food program is a Lifestyle-not a fad diet.


It would be nice to eat bacon 2-3 times a day but seriously-the long term effects?

YIKES! Healthy, Balanced Portions are important. So is your long term health & wellbeing❤️

Blood Sugar is SERIOUS BUSINESS? Why? Because it affects our mood, our eating habits & our hormones. Making sure to keep it as level as possible by eating often & eating high protein foods, healthy fats & lots of greens will help IMMENSELY!

PLEASE SNACK wisely between your shakes and meal(s)!! A few nuts and berries, rice cakes & avacado, green apple, veggies & hummus, etc!! You should never feel like you are ‘starving’ on this program. Listen to your body! Are you hungry or is eating sometimes a habit? It can be triggered by stress! More to come on that tomorrow!

Sharing circulatory system

Posted on December 1, 2019 at 7:10 AM Comments comments (0)


There are about 60,000 miles of blood vessels in the human body, and along with the heart and other muscles,

they make up the circulatory system.

Taking care of your feet in so important to wellness and health.

Grounding, or ‘earthing,’ is a practice of walking barefoot on the ground, without any shoes or socks that serve as a barrier. It is founded on the power of the intense negative charge carried by the Earth, high in electrons, which provides high amounts of antioxidants and free-radical destroying electrons.

The role of this network of roadways is to carry blood to every corner of your body. However, when your circulation is poor, it slows or blocks the blood flow, and the cells in the body can’t get all the oxygen and nutrients they need.

In the case of reduced blood flow, one develops poor circulation symptoms. This usually happens in the extremities, and the most common causes of it include diabetes, obesity, heart conditions, and arterial issues.

People suffering from poor blood circulation experience symptoms like muscle cramps, tingling, numbness, throbbing or stinging pain in the limbs.

If left untreated, this issue could lead to reduced blood flow and plaque in the arteries, which might cause more serious conditions, like a heart attack or a stroke.

Therefore, it is of high importance to improve blood flow in the body, and here are the most effective natural ways to do so:

1. Regular exercise boosts circulation, and you can pick a physical activity such as swimming, running, walking, or riding a bike

2. Massage boosts blood circulation by stimulating blood flow in the treated area

3. Drink plenty of water

4. Avoid smoking, as it is one of the main causes of poor circulation

5.Stretching will improve body circulation as prolonged periods of sitting slow it down

6. A healthy and well-balanced diet, rich in vegetables, fruits, healthy fats, and lean proteins, and low in salt, trans fats, and sugar, will increase blood flow in the body

7. To instantly boost circulation, use a pillow or another object to elevate the legs while sitting

8. Hot and cold treatment boosts circulation; apply heat using a hot pack for about 30 seconds, and then repeat with a cold one

9. Hydrotherapy will help you better oxygen flow as hot water relaxes the tense muscles, boosting blood circulation and allowing oxygen to flow more smoothly

10, Ginkgo Biloba is a versatile herb that boosts circulation and is available as a liquid extract, a tablet, capsules, or a dried leaf.

Additionally, you will benefit a low from a salt-made scrub, as it will smooth the skin, energize your legs, and ease excess fluid. To boost circulation, buff in circular motions working your way up the leg, from ankle to knee.

Note that high heels and pointed-toe shoes interrupt the blood flow from the heart to the feet, so you should choose flats or trainers whenever possible.

You can also try tights for compression hosiery, which are specifically designed to help blood circulate easily through the legs.

Sugar Detox In 10 Days (Restart Brain and Body)

Posted on November 19, 2019 at 7:25 AM Comments comments (0)

There is a data about the consumption of sugar in America that seems to be a bit scary. It’s actually worth worrying because the research showed that an average American consumes about 154 pounds of sugar a year. The problem lies in the fact that sugar can be fatal for the health of a person because it can lead to diabetes, inflammation and other issues.

This is why experts recommend sugar detox, and they say it’s a must especially if you love eating sweet things. We are about to tell you one extremely effective way to do that without strict diet, with no carvings and bland food. You will accomplish the thing that you never thought you will: you will no longer be sugar addict.

If you are firm with your decision to detox your organism from sugar, then you will succeed. On the contrary you will only torture yourself because you will break the rules. When you are decided everything is much easier.

COLD TURKEY

You should be aware that consuming to much sugar is also an addiction as any other. The detox will last 10 days, and during this time you should avoid it in every form.

DON’T DRINK YOUR CALORIES

Especially try to avoid sodas, sports drinks, sweetened teas and other sugary juices.

PROTEIN POWER

You must use the power of proteins which will balance the blood sugar and insulin level. Furthermore, you should include whole farm egg or a protein shake in your daily diet, preferably in your breakfast. One more thing is to eat more nuts, seeds, eggs, chicken and fish.

UNLIMITED (GOOD) CARBS

Eat a lot of vegetables, but no potatoes, beets or sweet potatoes. Also, you must increase the intake of broccoli, kale, peppers, greens, tomatoes and artichokes.

 

 

 

FIGHT SUGAR WITH FAT

Consume some healthy fat throughout some foods, for example or virgin olive oil and avocado.

REDUCE STRESS

Try to relax a bit and live more calmly. Don’t stress over every little thing that happens in order to avoid the cortisol to make you hungry.

PROPER SLEEP

You must think of this every night before you go to sleep. Try to rest at least 7 hours and get your beauty and healthy sleep.

These services are no longer covered by OHIP as of October 1

Posted on October 6, 2019 at 8:05 PM Comments comments (0)

Revisions to the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) means some Ontarians will have to pay out of pocket for some procedures that were once covered.

Changes to the plan went into effect October 1, and include financial and procedural adjustments to services like certain pregnancy test methods and certain types of secretion removal.

The changes were made based on recommendations by a physician-lead group, who were asked to review a number of OHIP-insured services. The assessment is part of an effort to provide more effective care in the province. According to the Ontario Ministry of Health, the modifications are expected to save Ontario taxpayers about $83 million.

Some of the changes include:

1. Fewer x-rays for sinus-related problems - CT scans will be used if imaging is required on sinuses as x-rays are shown to be not as effective.

2. New referral system for patients with chronic hip and knee pain

 - In an effort to minimize unnecessary hip and knee CT/MRI scans and surgical consultations, patients will now be referred to rapid access clinics with specialized care.

3. Ear wax cleaning will only be done when medically necessary

- Coverage for ear wax cleaning is no longer available. Doctors will now charge for the service unless the ear wax is causing hearing loss, over-the-counter medicine is ineffective or it needs to be removed to deal with another condition.

4. Reducing the use of dipstick pregnancy tests

- Blood pregnancy tests will now be used in place of dipstick tests, which will only be insured if the patients needs results to prevent imminent harm.

 

 

5. House calls

- Physician premiums for house calls will only be funded for patients who are frail seniors, housebound and/or receiving palliative care.

6.  The use of ambulatory cardiac monitoring devices 

 

 

- Loop recorders, an outdated technology used to evaluate cardiac electrical activity in out-patients, are no longer funded.

7. Referrals to specialists 

- Patients will no longer need to visit their primary care provider for a letter to see a specialists they’ve already seen for the same problem, within a two-year period.

8.  Infertility diagnosis testing

- OHIP will no longer cover post-coital testing of cervical mucous, a method now considered to be outdated.

 

 

9. Larynx exams

- Examination of the stomach will no longer include additional examination of the larynx, when there’s no evidence of a problem. Laryngoscopy services will only be provided when medically necessary.

 

 

10. Preoperative assessments

 

- "History and physical" assessments by a family doctor are usually requested before an operation by surgeons, although they’re not medically required. Now patients will be assessed by the surgeon and anesthesiologist before the surgery to determine the right anesthetic care.

Being Aware is the First Step

Posted on June 24, 2019 at 4:50 PM Comments comments (2)

Being Aware is the First Step

 

BY MADISYN TAYLOR

There is freedom that comes with awareness, because with it comes the opportunity to make a choice.

 

Life is a journey comprised of many steps on our personal path that takes us down a winding road of constant evolution. And each day, we are provided with a myriad of opportunities that can allow us to transform into our next best selves. One moment we are presented with an opportunity to react differently when yet another someone in our life rubs us the wrong way; on another day we may find ourselves wanting to walk away from a particular circumstance but are not sure if we can. Eventually, we may find ourselves stuck in a rut that we can never seem to get out of. We may even make the same choices over and over again because we don't know how to choose otherwise. Rather than moving us forward, our personal paths may take us in a seemingly never-ending circle where our actions and choices lead us nowhere but to where we've already been. It is during these moments that awareness can be the first step to change.

 

Awareness is when we are able to realize what we are doing. We observe ourselves, noticing our reactions, actions, and choices as if we were a detached viewer. Awareness is the first step to change because we can't make a change unless we are aware that one needs to be made in the first place. We can then begin understanding why we are doing what we are doing. Afterward, it becomes difficult not to change because we are no longer asleep to the truth behind our behaviors. We also begin to realize that, just as much as we are the root source behind the causes for our behaviors, we are also the originator for any changes that we want to happen.

 

There is a freedom that comes with awareness. Rather than thinking that we are stuck in a repetitive cycle where there is no escape, we begin to see that we very much play a hand in creating our lives. Whether we are aware of them or not, our behaviors and choices are always ours to make. Our past and our present no longer have to dictate our future when we choose to be aware. We are then free to move beyond our old limits, make new choices, and take new actions. With awareness, our paths can't help but wind us forward in our lives while paving the way for new experiences and new ways of being. It is through awareness that we can continue to consciously evolve.

Understanding Addiction

BY WENDYNE LIMBER

The harsh reality is seventy-eight people may die today from opioid overdose, and another 20 million are experiencing a substance use disorder. Drug overdose is the leading cause of accidental death in the United States--and every day, some 6,300 people seek addiction treatment. Yearly, as many as 2 to 3 million people are admitted to treatment facilities for alcohol and drug abuse AND the majority of people in formal treatment centers suffer relapse over and over again. Some of these are our children or a family member we love. It's time to help...to do something different--to know something different--to utilize authentic evidence-based science, medicine, transpersonal psychology, birth psychology, child development, spirituality and consciousness to address the factors that set a person up to become a drug addict or alcoholic. This course is for anyone who is ready to know how parents unconsciously set up a child or significant other for the insanity of addiction, enabling and co-dependency. Using deep sarcasm to exaggerate some major points and behaviors--this important course gives students an opportunity to contemplate what not to do and always ends with a healing teaching for reversing any behavior that sabotages recovery.

Judgement verse Opinion

Posted on June 5, 2019 at 9:20 AM Comments comments (0)

Judgment closes us down and is final, whereas opinion leaves us open-hearted and open to change.

 

Most of us understand that when we judge someone, or someone judges us, it is a negative emotional experience. As a result, we naturally want to avoid being judgmental, but this gets confusing when we feel we have to suppress thoughts that could actually be offering us guidance. For example, we may meet someone new and suppress a negative feeling about them, thinking that we don't want to fall into the trap of being judgmental. Later, though, it may turn out that paying attention to that thought could have helped us take care of ourselves or someone else. 

 

It is important to learn to distinguish inner guidance, and having an opinion, from judgment, otherwise we run the risk of not listening to our intuition and not allowing ourselves to form opinions. Inner guidance and opinions both help us to interact more intelligently in the world, so we don't want to throw them out in an effort to avoid being judgmental. Our intuition usually makes itself known to us in a flash, and often has a physical component--a flutter in our stomachs, sweaty palms, or a chill. When we use this information to help us navigate a situation, we always benefit. Similarly, having an opinion about a person or an idea allows us to converse about it in a focused way with intention. Listening to our intuition and forming opinions are both positive outcomes of our ability to interpret the information that comes our way. 

 

When we make a judgment, on the other hand, we attempt to have a final say on whether someone or something is inherently good or bad. Judgments close us down instead of opening us up; opinions have a lighter quality and are amenable to change. Once a judgment has been made, there is no more conversation or consideration, whereas opinions invite further debate. Intuition guides us from moment to moment, but, unlike judgment, never makes a final decree. In other words, it is only healthy to be open to the information we receive and to allow ourselves to process that information. As long as we stay open and fluid, we can trust that we have not fallen prey to the trap of judgment.
