Leading cause of back pain may surprise you.

The leading cause of back pain may surprise you. Bacteria may be behind your back pain, but antibiotics aren’t the best answer An interesting study out of Denmark found that a 90-day program of antibiotics reduced or eliminated back pain in many of the participants. That’s promising news for chronic back pain sufferers… but there’s a problem with antibiotics. They don’t just kill off the bad flora, they also kill off the good. And an increased use of antibiotics has been associated with an increase in cancer rates. So what should you do? How about using something that helps your body fight off the bad bacteria naturally while keeping the good: systemic proteolytic enzymes. These are enzymes your body produces in abundance… until your late 20s when production falls off drastically. Taking a proteolytic enzyme supplement not only boosts your immune system against bad bacteria, it also cleans up excess ...(Read More)

Dining To Stop Making Cancer

DINING TO STOP MAKING CANCER One of the best aspects of our Coaching Program is to prove to you that food choices designed to prevent and control cancer can be delicious! The type of diet that appears to minimize cancer risk is low in “high-quality” animal protein and saturated animal fats, and rich in lower-glycemic-index carbohydrates from NON-GMO whole grains, pasta, beans, fruit and fruit juices. It also features phytonutrient-rich vegetables – particularly cruciferous and allium vegetables, such as broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, garlic and onions that boost the body’s production of protective enzymes that detoxify carcinogens. Keeping the diet low to moderate in added fats or oils can work with regular exercise to promote leanness and good muscle insulin sensitivity, which aid the prevention and control of many types of cancer with side benefits of healthy fat loss. So that is what we do teach you how to prepare – ...(Read More)

Taking Ownership of your Health and Wellness

Taking ownership of your health and wellness is a completely new paradigm because for decades in conventional medicine most of us growing up felt that if we had cancer or a life threatening disease befell us for some unknown reason, we would just go to the doctor and get it fixed by attacking it. If the cancer or  life threatening disease went away no one ever looked to see if there was a connection between their lifestyle and their disease. So this is really a whole new paradigm change.  We didn’t think about genetic modified foods because it wasn’t around. Genetic modified foods and pounds of sugar being put into our food supply  is a relatively new thing that took place after the industrial revolution. In the past we didn’t eat the huge amounts of sugar that are being added to our food supply today. We couldn’t eat that many ...(Read More)

Tips from My 18 year Fitness Journey

  Tips from My 18 Year Fitness Journey!! Tips & Lessons from my personal Fitness Journey. I share with you the latest health and fitness information that really works in the real world before anyone else. No amount of exercise will correct hormone imbalances for fat loss: You must control your Leptin hormone in your battle to lose body fat and put one more hormone on your side. People are unknowingly fighting a losing battle with leptin every time they attempt to lose weight. Your body depends on high levels of leptin and sensitive leptin receptors to burn fat. Anytime you go on a diet and reduce your calorie intake, leptin levels plummet and fat burning is dramatically reduced. Because leptin’s main function is to protect your body against starvation, and in the midst of decreased food intake (i.e. dieting), your body unfortunately views your stored body fat as a ...(Read More)

Fitness Journey

Things that I have noticed in my fitness journey: 3 Reasons why the Preacher Curl creates imbalances. Reason #1: over-shortening or lengthening muscles that support your shoulder while lifting-weight. Reason #2: Only working one muscle and one joint, so the metabolic effect is very low. Reason #3: You’re training your muscles to be strong with a very forward shoulder and shortened pec position, creating a body imbalance. The posture you lift in is the posture you stay in. Creating muscle imbalances sets the stage for injuries. 

Fitness Journey:

Somethings that I have noticed on my health and fitness journey: 3 reasons why the Leg Curl Machine can be absolutely horrible: Reason #1 Almost impossible not to arch your back and train the wrong area of your hamstring, with a lot of pressure on your spinal discs. (your laying on your abs, this is not an ideal position for training) Reason #2 You’re working the wrong part of your hamstrings (your lower hamstring not the upper, which isn’t very functional and misses the majority of the metabolic effect.) Reason #3 Your hamstrings and abs counteract each other, to stabilize your spine, because you’re laying on your abs, you’re guaranteed an imbalance. These imbalances can lead to back and hip injuries.

Does young wheat grass contain gluten?

One of my clients that has been in my Health Coaching Program for 8 years voiced a concern over wheat grass juice being gluten free. So, I wanted to take a moment to share some light on the subject with all of my blog followers. Does Wheatgrass Contain Gluten? Some people become sick when they consume the elastic protein in wheat, barley and rye called gluten. Celiac disease causes a multitude of symptoms including gastrointestinal upset, rashes and brain fog, and can be linked to other diseases such as cancer, lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. Celiac sufferers must avoid all gluten for the rest of their lives. Wheatgrass grows from the seed of wheat, so it would seem like something celiacs should avoid. However, because it is a young version of the plant, the grass itself does not contain gluten. What Is Wheat Grass? Used primarily as a nutritional supplement, wheat ...(Read More)

Flat Belly Stop Eating This Protein

The gliadin protein in wheat is an opiate and highly addictive. Eat a slice of healthy whole grain wheat bread, and your blood sugar and insulin go sky-high. This in turn stimulates the growth of belly fat and increases inflammation. Gluten is a protein that forms in foods when two other proteins, gliadin and gluten combine. Foods containing gluten and gliadin proteins include wheat, barley and rye, and grains related to these such as spelt and kamut. In the early 1950s, Dr. Willem-Karel Dicke was born in 1905, in Dordrecht, Holland, and died Utrecht in 1962. Dr. Dicke was a Dutch pediatrician who pioneered the gluten-free diet as a cure for celiac disease. This diet remains the only true treatment for this condition, requiring patients to avoid all traces of gluten in foods consummation. Wheat The National Institutes of Health, in its brochure “Celiac Disease,” advises people following a gluten-free ...(Read More)

Amazing systemic enzymes that we begin losing after age 20…

Systemic enzymes are amazing. In fact, you might call them extraordinary, since they provide systemic health benefits. For those of us starting a new health regimen for the New Year, that’s exceptionally good news. As review, enzymes are proteins catalyzing every bodily chemical action. There are over 3,000 bodily enzymes—most of them proteolytic, or protein-eating, enzymes—and fall into three kinds of enzymes: food, digestive and metabolic/systemic enzymes. Food enzymes come from foods, particularly raw foods with their enzymes intact, while digestive enzymes help to digest food. Metabolic/systemic enzymes—while they may have some enzymes in common with digestive enzymes—work differently, going beyond the stomach, into the bloodstream and cells to work their amazingly healthy outcomes. Some systemic enzymes with particularly beneficial health effects are the pancreatic enzymes included in an important systemic enzyme called pancreatin. Others include: papain, a protein-cleaving enzyme from papaya and other plants. bromelain, a protease enzyme derived from the ...(Read More)
