Small Seeds with a Big Impact on your Health and Wellness

Small Seed, Big Impact The wonderful world of flax seed—by the numbers. A powerhouse food packed with health benefits. If you’ve not added flax seed to your diet, you will soon. First cultivated nearly 3,000 years ago, flax seed has been around a while. Back in the eighth century, King Charlemagne was so convinced of the goodness of flax seed he enforced laws that required the people of his land to eat it. Now, 1,300 years later, experts realize Charlemagne’s suspicions were spot on. Evidence has shown flax seed may help lower your risk of cancer, lung disease, stroke, heart disease, and diabetes. Recognition of these health benefits has lead to an increase in the amount of flax seed being added to foods such as oatmeal, crackers, and bread. You may want to add it to your food as well. 3 Ingredients What makes flax seed so great? Its reputation ...(Read More)

How you can be a healthier weekend warrior

  Become A Healthier/Safer Weekend Warrior   We’ve all done it and I have been as guilty as the last guy at times.  You are running late to a round of golf or game of pick-up basketball, jump out of your car, run to the first tee or court, and jump right in 100%.  Unfortunately this is a recipe for an injury, either traumatic or the overuse variety.   As hard as it is sometimes to squeeze in an extra 10 minutes into our busy schedules, these few minutes prior to activity can be the difference between incurring an injury or playing your best round ever.  Most weekend warriors were at some point in their lives competitive athletes either in football, basketball, track, baseball, etc.  During this time of their lives, either collegiately or in high school, these athletes practiced rigorously, worked out in the weight room, ran and stretched ...(Read More)

Are You Really Committed To Your Health and Wellness Plan?

Are you committed to your health and wellness plan? I believe that success, wealth, prosperity, abundance, lifestyle freedom, or however you define your “ULTIMATE success” only comes to those who are committed to their purpose. Those who momentarily want to be involved or want to just dabble with their metabolic health and wellness plan are often left disappointed. See, you and every single successful person you know are alike. You have access to information, and to resources that were once out of the reach of folks like you and me. And you have access to coaches, mentors, advisers, communities, forums, seminars, masterminds and workshops to guide you all the way to success. But even in the best of circumstances some people will stay where they are in life, never achieving the level of success they dreamed of, and in fact they’ll digress, get bitter and resentful of others because of their limiting self beliefs and ...(Read More)

Is Arthritis a Degenerative Condition?

  Is arthritis a degenerative condition?  Are all forms of arthritis auto-immune?  Okay, let’s examine those questions.  This is a topic near and dear to me as I have this condition and have been able to stop all symptoms and regenerate healthy tissue. Is that possible?  Because I work as a nurse I’ve been exposed to all types of medical treatments over the past 39 years. Degeneration is caused by the body self attacking the tissue as with auto-immune conditions or inflammation, oxidative stress or free radical damage, and wear & tear.   In medicine we do not talk about regeneration because we work primarily with drugs or surgery.   Have you ever thought about how miraculous the human body is and about it’s amazing potential to regenerate healthy cells given the right compounds.  I am not talking a drug that shuts down a pathway but about nutrients that decrease damage ...(Read More)

Health and Wellness Tip

Eliminate Whole Wheat! Being a health coach many of my clients tell me how difficult it is to navigate the food jungle. While whole wheat sounds healthy it contains a carbohydrate called Amylopectin-This is a carbohydrate that causes blood sugar to spike. People that eat a high glucose level makes it difficult to lose weight no matter how hard you train or how far you run. It also speeds up aging through Advanced Glycation End Products (AGEs) causing damage to your organs, joints and skin. Staying younger, longer hope you are too…
