Osteoporosis and Milk

Milk might not be the best thing to drink to deal with osteoporosis.

My wife found this yesterday in one of her nutrition textbooks, Dietary Guidelines, from the Global College of Natural Medicine, 2010

Regrettably, the more dairy one consumes, the weaker bones can become.  It has to do with acidity and alkalinity.  When placed together they neutralize.  The calcium in milk is alkaline while the protein is acidic.  The problem is that there is more acid in the milk than alkaline calcium.  This causes the body to leach more calcium from the bones to combat the acids coming in.  So, unfortunately, those consuming dairy to combat osteoporosis are actually causing the opposite to occur.

Are You Tired of Being Sick Yet?

You probably hear almost daily that another one of your friends or co-workers is sick. The media is still pumping up the swine flu even though some medical authorities have said that it has already peaked and has not been the event that it was predicted to be. Personally, I’m tired of hearing about it.

I don’t believe that most people need to get sick, especially not with things like a cold or the flu. None of my immediate family has been sick in over a year, and it isn’t because we live in isolation. I have small kids who go to school every day and are around other sick kids, so they have been “exposed” to whatever is out there, as have my wife and I.

Develop Your Intuition

Do you listen to your intuition? Do you even know what your intuition is?

Bob Proctor in 6 Minutes to Success defines intuition as the mental factor that allows you to tune into vibration. Everyone is transmitting thought energy, or vibrations, all day long. So, your intuition is your ability to pick up on what other people are thinking.

Bob suggests an exercise to demonstrate. Pick one person that you know and think about them calling you. Think about it frequently, all day long. The stronger your feeling of them calling you, the stronger the vibration that you put out. Chances are that they will call you before the end of the day, or the next time you talk to them they will probably tell you that they were thinking about calling you.

I AM Statements vs. Affirmations

Today I want to focus on mental wellness. You’ve been told about how powerful affirmations are, but have you heard of I AM statements?

Affirmations are statements of what you want to do, be, or have and they work for some and don’t seem to for others. I think the people who get them to work are those who have figured out that they need to write their affirmations in the present tense, as if they were true right now and add in emotion and gratitude. Like Bob Proctor’s statement: “I am so happy and grateful now that…

Boost Your Immune System

How is your immune system doing for you?  Right now I am watching to a video from David Wolfe, who is considered to be one of the leading authorities on nutrition,  about how important it is to take care of the immune system.  He spent a good part of the video talking about a specific class of herbs that are very important to boost the immune system.  These herbs are the medicinal mushrooms.  He said that these are the mushrooms that grow on fallen trees.  What they do is work to concentrate certain minerals that the trees have absorbed throughout their lifetime, which can exceed 100 years.

Reverse Osmosis Systems are Wasteful

I have always heard that reverse osmosis water purification systems are wasteful, but I had no idea how wasteful they really were until today.

I work with a network marketing company that sells water filters among other things, so I decided to do some research about other water filtration systems for your home.  Of course, I’m hoping that when I’m done all of the evidence will say you should buy mine, but I’m trying to keep an open mind about what I find.

Are You Showering in Chlorine?

Do you have a shower water filter?

You probably make sure that your drinking water is filtered because you know that you don’t want to drink chlorinated water.  Some people even shower after swimming to rinse off the chlorine from the pool (which is pointless because the chlorine has already been absorbed by the skin and there is probably more chlorine in the shower water, unless it is filtered).

Chlorine is absorbed very quickly and easily by the skin, especially when it is heated.  Heat opens the pores and relaxes the skin.  The heat in a shower makes it easier for the chlorine to escape the water and become a free gas that we breathe in as well.

Chemical Interactions in Food Ingredients

I’m with a network marketing company that, among other things, sells a nutritional juice product.  I received an email this morning from my upline that made me think about artificial additives in our food.  Someone had asked our MLM company if they could share the difference between our juice product with the juice product from a competitor.

It turns out that the competitor’s juice, which contains a lot of vitamin C, also contains sodium benzoate as a preservative.  Sodium benzoate can interact with vitamin C and form benzene, an organic solvent that is known to cause cancer and liver damage.

EFT – Emotional Freedom Technique

Have you been working toward a goal but can’t seem to ever achieve it?  You’ve been dieting but the weight doesn’t go away.  Doing the right things in your business but the money isn’t coming.  You’ve been trying to live the Law of Attraction but nothing is happening.

The problem could be that you are resisting what you are trying to achieve.  EFT, or Emotional Freedom Techniques could be the answer.  I was introduced to EFT recently by Bob Doyle (from The Secret) through his Wealth Beyond Reason program and it is truly amazing.  The basic idea is that you can clear out the resistance  by tapping certain points on the body’s meridian system while repeating various phrases about whatever is holding you back.  I know it sounds pretty crazy but it really works.

The Power of Positive Daily Insights

You know how important it is to keep your body healthy, but do you think much about keeping your mind healthy?  With all of the bad news about the economy and everything else in the media it is vital to keep a positive outlook.  One great way to do that is to receive insightful daily emails that affirm how powerful and amazing you are and that good things do happen.

I currently receive two every morning that I think are very powerful.  The first is Notes from the Universe from Mike Dooley and the other is Daily Insights from Bob Proctor.  Check them out.
