It’s Giveaway time!

This week in the spirit of wellness we are giving away three audio copies of Nutritional Truths and the only requirement for entry is to like and share this post on your Facebook page. ***Correction-We are now giving away five free copies of Nutritional Truths. Everyone who does this will go into a drawing next week, and I will announce the winners next Thursday the 17th!

One of the most educational experiences I have had in some time is learning to market a book. After I became clear how almost all disease was an option and not our genetic fate I began writing Nutritional Truths. Time and again I hear folks talk about older relatives and disease as if genetics is why they are sick. Of course this is most often not true at all.

Almost always it is a result of repeated behaviors that supports and will often replicate illness. From food, beverages, thoughts, and behaviors to one’s perception of the world is either adding to one’s wellness or illness. As Dr. Wigmore used to say ” The food you eat can either be the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.”

All ten chapters can be read to you by me for free! Help me get the word out about Nutritional Truths as well as my blog at http://www.nutritionaltruths.com. In my blog, I cover topics that will support your efforts in knowing the truths about certain things that may impact you and your families wellness. If you ever have an idea for a blog or would like to suggest topics, please let me know.

The book covers foods, beverages and their ingredients that serve us well and those that support disease and death. Attitudes, behaviors and habits that support illness and those that support wellness. Learn the truth about environmental toxins we often expose ourselves to as well as truths about dentistry and its impact on one’s health.

Be introduced to medical pioneers and their effective solutions to disease over the past 100 years. Inspire yourself with stories from those who have faced a diagnosis and use alternative care to bring about wellness. Folks read or listen to Nutritional Truths for many different reasons. Like and share this now on Facebook on or before September 17th for your chance to win! Thanks and be well!
FIVE FREE COPIES OF THE AUDIO BOOK (1)

DARK day indeed

The Deny Americans the Right to Know Act H.R.1599 was just approved by 275 politicians in the house. It keeps Americans from knowing about GMO’s in their food. H.R.1599 will ensure that labeling of GMO’s is never required and repeals the labeling already put in place in Vermont. It forbids states from requiring any labeling of GMO’s and there are many who benefit from this, though not the consumer.

Genetically Modified Foods have been banned or restricted in over 50 countries including France, Germany, and Italy. The GMO crops introduced 20 years ago have required an extra 500 million pounds of herbicides to be used including Glyphosate (Roundup) that has been linked to the bee colony collapse and lowered numbers of monarch butterflies.

90% of Americans have said they want to know what is in the foods they are buying. If folks understood all the risks and dangers of consuming GMO’s this would not be allowed to happen. Good thing it’s baseball season and along with summer’s heat can keep folks distracted.

If your still not clear on how prominent GMO’s are see here: 88% of all corn grown today is GMO, 94% of all soy is GMO, 87% of rapeseed or canola is GMO, and sugar beets are just over 50% GMO crops. And although we don’t eat it 88% of all cotton grown is GMO. Investigate it yourself to learn more.

It now goes to the Senate for a vote, feel free to reach out to your Senators and let them know your thoughts on the issue. I used to think a politician’s role was to look out for their constituents. Things aren’t always as they seem and be sure to eat organic when possible. The audio version of Nutritional Truths is still being edited and should be out by months end. Feel free to share this with others and Be Well!

Wheatgrass vs. Crisco and the Art of Misinformation

Heart disease, cancer, and diabetes don’t care in what month you were born. The latest Columbia University report claims the month you were born decides to what disease you’re predisposed. This is a bit hokey. Their figures are probably accurate when it comes to winter and vitamin D deficiencies, but overall it alludes to the idea that we are predisposed to disease, and it is beyond our control.

The recently released John Hopkins study that suggests unlucky people get cancer is laughable. The medical establishment and media will say almost anything to have us believe that it is not within our power to avoid disease. There are few genetic issues we cannot escape, but almost all disease is self-induced.

One of the first things I subscribe to is the belief that, as an adult, whatever we consume is our choice – from food and beverages to information and thoughts. For years, I was oblivious to just how poorly I was supplying my body with nutrients. Day after day I was filling it with toxins and “food” void of almost all nutrition. How it is I am alive and in as good health as I am, is a testament to our body’s ability to endure. Our bodies ability to heal is greater than most of us have been taught.

When it comes to nutritious food, I have a shot wheatgrass juice at one end of the food spectrum and on the opposite end I have a shot of Crisco. Wheatgrass is full of energy, minerals, chlorophyll, and enzymes. It nourishes our bodies and promotes wellness. Crisco, on the other hand, is essentially toxins that can likely only promote illness (hydrogenated GMO soy and palm oils and TBHQ, which is a form of butane).

Choose foods that are closer to wheatgrass than to Crisco. Be aware you are choosing your fate. Your health outcomes are not just some predetermined thing over which you are powerless. By making choices closer to wheatgrass, you can ensure healthier outcomes and less disease.

The book, Nutritional Truths, and this blog have been written to ensure folks like you know the truth: you, more often than not, have the ability to create wellness. Kindly consider sharing this on social media and help me spread the word. I am heading into the studio next week to record the audio version of Nutritional Truths; by month’s end the audio version will be available on iTunes. Thanks for your time and Be Well!

Diseases are Mostly an Option

For the first 30 plus years of my life Pluto was a planet and then one day in 2006 it was not. We grow up with certain mindsets about foods that sometimes serve us and other times do not. It depends on what you learned and picked up on growing up. For some of us fast food was the norm and for others fresh veggies filling the dinner plate was. One will support illness and the other health.

More often than not our mindset is that if someone upstream of us biologically had a disease we are predisposed to it as well. That is a lie, with few exceptions. When it comes to almost all heart disease, diabetes or cancers the fate of our wellness lies squarely on us and our behaviors. The actions include what and how much we eat and drink, how we think, exposure to toxins, and how we move.

We tend to model our parents behaviors around all these things much as we do our faith and how we handle relationships, careers, etc. So the “It’s in our genes” mentality, for the most part, is simply not true.

Great news to many who are living with the idea that moms or grandmas disease awaits them. Now if they eat, drink, think, expose themselves to toxins, and move as they did, it very well might, but they have the choice to shift those habits and outcomes.

Nutritional Truths covers these facts and much more. You are most likely not a victim of genetic fate, you just need to be clear on the facts that will serve you well. If you’re not a fan of paperbacks the book is now available on Kindle. Till next week-Be well!

Most people don't really want the truth.

Birthing of Nutritional Truths.

What began as a personal experiment turned into a quest for truths and then came the need to share much of what I have learned with as many folks as I can. Deciding to write Nutritional Truths and then actually delivering on that decision exposes one to their ways-of-being in life. There is much room for organization and I could not live with myself without publishing what I had learned. This book for me, as it seems for many, is not a finish line, but rather my starting line.

If I waited till I had reached some level of perfection in my own life, it may have never happened. Realized last summer out in the deserts of Arizona that my life’s purpose going forward is to educate about illness and wellness. Still don’t have anywhere near all the answers, likely never will, but the ones I now know are in the book.

I have witnessed too many family members, friends and colleagues dying needlessly and often at far too young an age. Many of them from heart disease and cancer. I learned that while they were likely oblivious to their own contributions to their illness, they were also in the dark about various effective solutions for what ailed them. While not pointing any fingers, as I would have four pointed right back at me, it is important for us to know how we can shift the crosshairs of disease off of us through informed choices and actions.

This begins my weekly blog and you’re invited to join me each week, as I share information that may serve you well! Kindly share my book,join me on Face Book-link to the right, and that will allow you to see each new addition to my blog. Consider sharing with those you know and care about and I welcome your feedback, questions and ideas! Take a look around this site to learn more. Be kind to yourself for me, and be well!
