M.O.V.E. Motivation to be healthy.
Motivate, Organize, Visualize, Execute.
It doesn’t take much. Get off the technology. I hear everyday in my practice “…you don’t understand doc. I need to get things done and I have to be “connected. My people need me. I work constantly. If I didn’t have my cell phone, computer etc. I would never get done. How is this? How did we as a race build pyramids, discover new worlds across the ocean, put someone in outer space. We did all of this without cell phones and technology that keeps us not in constant contact but in a vegetative “zombie” state. We are spending more on health care than ever before and we are sicker than we have ever been in history. Put down your smart phones and MOVE.
Motivation to be healthy.
Motivation can come from within or outside. It is usually helpful to have someone alongside you. You can then hold each other accountable.
Organize to be healthy.
Organize: This means you have to plan. Failing to plan means you are planning to fail.
Visualize to be healthy.
Visualize: See in your minds eye exactly every detail of your successful outcome and use your organizational plan to achieve it!
Finally, Execute: Sitting on the couch with all the best positive thoughts in the world will not get you your ideal goals. Part of your execution is the planning to commit to a workout, eating plan and specific times to do so. Do not waiver from this. Oh you say your life got in the way. My patients ran over. That is my big rationalization. Fill in your own lame excuse here. If something gets in your way. Then you did not do step two properly and plan. Let’s end this Zombie Apocalypse!
I know I am going to pushing all kind of buttons with our readers but here is the truth. We want to believe in our white coat doctors and what they tell us. After all, are they not looking after our best interest? I am sickened by how the medical community has become a profit driven machine and preying on the fear of women to cut off disease free tissue just in case you may develop cancer. The insane part of this is just because you carry a gene for a certain cancer it doesn’t mean that you can’t live a lifestyle that prevents the expression of that gene. Genes can be switched on and off. Based upon my family genetic history I should be dying of heart disease and many forms of cancer.
Dr. Bruce Lipton’s work shows our genetic history does not have to be our future. Gene expression can be changed through lifestyle modification. Generations of fat families for example, one mom and dad decide to get in shape get off GMO and other inflammatory foods and wella they have a lean child that never shows any signs of obesity. Remember this is not an argument of cancer treatment. Angelina had no cancer. I can’t imagine the anguish she must have gone through in this decision; however, she should have been informed of other options. The 87% risk of breast cancer the doctors stated has no basis in science. They also stated that now she has only a 5% risk. Also not based in science.
The alternative is to create a healthy lifestyle where the environment for “high risk” genes is limited. This article was published by Naturalnews.com decide for yourself.

(NaturalNews) In a New York Times op-ed explaining her decision to have both of her breasts surgically removed even though she doesn’t have breast cancer, Angelina Jolie cited risk numbers as key to her decision. She said that doctors told her she had an “87% risk of breast cancer.” Her solution? Undergo three months of surgical procedures and have her breasts cut out.
Problem solved, right? With her breasts removed, she says her risk of breast cancer is now reduced to a mere 5 percent. The same bizarre logic can also be applied to men who cut off their testicles to “prevent testicular cancer” or people who cut out their colons to “prevent colorectal cancer.” But that would be insane, so nobody does that, because one of the most basic principles of medicine is that you don’t subject patients to the considerable risks and costs of surgery and anesthesia to remove organs that have no disease!
But the really sad part about all this is that Angelina Jolie was lied to. She didn’t have an 87% risk of breast cancer in the first place. All the women reading her NYT op-ed piece are also being lied to.
How cancer doctors lie with statistics and use fear to scare women into high-profit procedures
The very idea that breast cancer is a “percent risk” is a complete lie. In reality, everyone has cancer micro-tumors in their bodies, including myself. Cancer is not a disease you just “get” like being randomly struck by lightning. It’s something you must “manage” or “prevent” day by day, meal by meal, through a lifestyle choice that involves vitamin D supplementation, nutrition, superfoods, vegetable juices and avoidance of cancer-causing chemicals and radiation.
So when a doctor says you have a “chance” of getting cancer, what he’s implying is that you have no control over cancer, and that’s an outright lie. Cancer quackery, in other words.
Even Jolie with her BRCA1 gene that’s linked to breast cancer can quite easily follow a dietary and lifestyle plan that suppresses BRCA1 gene expression. It’s not rocket science. It’s not even difficult. It can be done with simple foods that cost a few dollars a day. Those foods include raw citrus, resveratrol (red grapes or red wine), raw cruciferous vegetables, omega-3 oils and much more. Those same foods also help prevent heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s and other chronic diseases.
Indole-3-carbinol (I3C), by the way, a natural chemical found in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli and cabbage, offers powerful prevention against BRCA1 gene expression. But you don’t hear cancer doctors telling women to “eat more cabbage” because that doesn’t make the cancer industry any money. You can buy I3C as a potent nutritional supplement from a variety of sources. It’s literally cancer prevention in a capsule.
So the whole “chance” argument is pure quackery. There is no chance involved in whether you get cancer. It’s all cause and effect. You are either living a pro-cancer lifestyle and therefore growing cancer, or you’re living an anti-cancer lifestyle and keeping cancer in check so that it never becomes a problem. Cause and effect is what results in either the growth of cancer tumors or the prevention of cancer tumors. There is no “luck” involved.
It’s fascinating, isn’t it, that medical doctors don’t believe in luck or voodoo on any topic other than cancer. But when it comes to cancer, they want all women to be suckered into the victim mentality that cancer is purely a matter of “luck” and therefore women have no control over their own health outcomes. How dis-empowering! How sick! How incredibly exploitive of women!
If you really want to be informed about breast cancer and the corrupt, dishonest cancer industry, read my related article 10 Facts about the Breast Cancer Industry You’re Not Supposed to Know. Or listen to our upcoming FREE Cancer Solutions Summit broadcasting this coming Monday, May 20th.
Why doesn’t the cancer industry empower women with a sense of control over their own health?
I find it astonishing that the cancer industry doesn’t believe in cause and effect. They would rather scare women with “risk” statistics that imply people have no control over cancer. Empowering women with a sense of control over their own health is the last thing the cancer industry wants to do, because that would cause them to lose customers and lose money.
It’s far more profitable to scare all women into a state of such irrational panic that they agree to the most insane things imaginable such as chopping off both their healthy breasts even though they have no cancer. Such women are then convinced they’ve literally saved their own lives by agreeing to be mutilated by cancer surgeons.
“My chances of developing breast cancer have dropped from 87 percent to under 5 percent,” says Jolie. “I can tell my children that they don’t need to fear they will lose me to breast cancer.”
Will she also tell her children they should mutilate themselves, too, as a form of medical disease prevention? And what happens if she learns she has a risk of brain cancer? Does she chop off her head and call it a cure?
The scam of making women believe there is only ONE way to reduce your “risk” of breast cancer
The other enormous scam in all this is the idea that there’s only one way to reduce your “risk” of breast cancer. Even if you believe the fictitious number of “87% risk,” why does everyone automatically assume there is one and only one way to lower that risk?
“For any woman reading this, I hope it helps you to know you have options,” writes Jolie in the NYT. Yet she utterly fails to offer women any options other than the one she took: check in to a cancer center and let them play “cut-poison-burn” on your body. Jolie’s op-ed piece, which reads as if it were written by the public relations department of the Pink Lotus Breast Center, offers nothing in the way of nutrition advice, lifestyle choices, holistic therapies, wellness, alternative medicine… nothing! What an incredible disservice to all the women of America…
In the world of health, nutrition and cancer, there are thousands of ways to prevent cancer and suppress the expression of BRCA1 genes. But Jolie and the cancer industry seem to imply no options exist other than chemotherapy, radiotherapy or surgery. Three options only. Nothing else exists in their world, not nutritional prevention, not vitamin D therapy, not vitamin C potentiated micro-chemotherapy, not ozone therapy, acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, stress reduction or anything else. You are supposed to believe that none of these things exist!
And why? Because the cancer industry wants to funnel women like cattle into their slash-poison-burn system of quack treatments. And Angelina Jolie is their new cheerleader. Scarred and no doubt experiencing the chest and armpit numbness that almost always accompanies mastectomy surgery, she now seeks to “inspire” other women to exercise their own sick “choice” and have their breasts removed, too!
It is the sickest invocation of women’s power that I’ve ever witnessed. This is not empowering women, it’s marching them into self-mutilation. And the “risk” is a complete fraud. In truth, Angelina Jolie had a higher risk of dying on the operating table than dying from breast cancer if she simply followed an anti-cancer lifestyle.
Don’t be tricked into self-mutilation by cancer industry quacks
• The claim that you have a “percent risk” of breast cancer is a big lie which implies you have no control over cancer.
• BRCA1 genes can be kept quiet (suppressed) through proper foods and lifestyle choices. A gene is not a death sentence.
• The implication that there is only ONE way to reduce breast cancer risk is a complete lie. There are thousands of options and strategies for preventing cancer. Never be cornered into surgery by a group of surgeons pushing irrational fear.
• Cancer micro-tumors exist in everyone. Cancer must be “managed” in everyone to keep it in check and avoid the growth of tumors.
• The cancer industry tricks women using unethical fear tactics to scare women with false statistics into high-profit cancer procedures that only cause them harm.
• The claim that cutting off healthy breasts somehow “empowers” women is sick and demented. Women are far more empowered by honest information on nutrition and healthy living that allows them to keep their bodies intact rather than being sliced up by dishonest cancer surgeons.

The bottom line is stay and be present and informed. I would not cut off my testicles if I did not have cancer and only carried the gene. News flash many men carry the gene and live and die of old age without developing testicular cancer.

Who wants to be thin?
I had a life insurance exam and after answering all of the pertinent questions I thought ok I am in pretty good health. A few days later I received a phone call that as expected my health history was good and I was being offered a discount. The agent said the only issue was my weight. I asked “what do you mean.” She replied that I was overweight based upon my height. I asked her define overweight? My question to you today is how do you define being the “correct” weight? Who wants to be thin?
I explained that I was a health and fitness expert and that for my age my body fat was 5 % less than the number for excellence for my age and not only that but it was in the good range for someone 20 younger than me. I’m sorry but these are the parameters and there is nothing she or I could do. I decided not to accept the policy.
The truth about being thin.
Ironically an athletic event requiring me to be able to pull my body weight through the air and over obstacles came up and I dropped weight to see if I could improve on strength and muscular endurance. I dropped about 20 lbs. I wasn’t shocked by what happened I did lose strength, but also lost muscular endurance strength. most shocking; however, at 20 lbs down my body fat went up 3%. In my program I call that a SKIFA or skinny fat. Muscle loss-weight loss but the volume of fat staying the same yields an increase in body fat percentage. It is more important for your health to be lean. Have you changed your opinion yet since the opening question? So who wants to be thin?
Pick three of your favorite abdominal movements. Do a light jog or jump rope for two minutes. Pull ups to failure then abdominal movement #1. Push ups to failure (shoot for 100) then abdominal movement #2. Body Squats to failure between 100-200, then abdominal movement #3. Repeat for muscular endurance. Puking is optional.

The following video testimonial from Eric Whitehorn is only one example of how much relief and restoration of muscle function can be achieved with the use of chiropractic adjustments and the use of FlexBuilding, a unique system of stretching muscle fiber. Eric was a personal trainer when he had a seizure one day and subsequently learned he had a brain turmor which required immediate surgery.
After brain surgery, additional surgery was required to Eric’s shoulders. Eric suffered complete dislocation of both shoulders with full thickness tears of the rotator cuff muscles. I began treating Eric with FlexBuilding movements to restore function to the muscles and tendons. Regular FlexBuilding stretching is done each week and he continues his recovery.
Eric is now back in the gym working and seeing clients on a regular basis.
Some of the FlexBuilding moves used with Eric will be featured in upcoming blogs.
Hello and Happy New Year to Everyone,
Because I am not one to put out much fluff and I get right to the issues, let’s talk about timing.
Have you said it is not the right time to eat healthy, or it is not the right time to start working out (maybe after the holiday), or it is not the right time to have a baby, or to go back to college, or to propose to your sweetheart, or whatever your personal desires may be that you have been putting off? Timing seems to be a common way to pacify our minds and hearts whenever we are confronted by some “opportunity” that makes us feel we are stepping outside our comfort zone. Immediately our radar goes up, wariness sets in and excuses begin.
Do you remember a time in your life when everything seemed to just click? What did you do to get there? If that worked then, what are you doing to remain there? Oprah had a show where all of the women had lost over 100 pounds but gained it all back. They went through their stories of woe and the “victim” mentality, but no one mentioned why they stopped doing what initially worked to take the weight off. Why do we continually talk about the glory days of what we used to be, but are unwilling to continue to do what got us there in the first place?
Go back to the gym. Change your eating habits. Do those daily “sweet” things for your spouse. Set realistic goals and write them down. And I have to be self serving for a moment–get your adjustments. Immerse yourself in a wellness environment and hang out with like minded people. If you hang out with drunks you become a drunk.
Timing seems to be a wonderful excuse many of us use to pacify our minds and hearts whenever we are confronted by some “opportunity” that makes us feel like we are stepping out of our comfort zone, something makes us feel challenged and our radar goes up, and the excuses begin. We say, “I am going to better my life after the holidays once I get these bills paid from holiday spending,” or, “When the weather gets a little nicer this spring, maybe after Memorial Day.” Then, Memorial Day become the Fourth of July, and its “I’m very busy this summer so this fall I will work on my goals right after Halloween.” That turns into, “The house needs a lot of work to get ready for Thanksgiving,” and as my daughter, Makenna, would say, “Wow-Wow” it’s the holidays.
I do not want to be the bummer coach, but for most folks it means we are stuck in a rut and next year will not bring about some wonderful turnaround. You see…timing is an excuse for most people. It is an excuse difficult for someone else to counter because they are not in your shoes, but they do understand it from their own perspective. Opportunities are like butterflies. They often are right there and are beautiful in front of your nose but instead of seizing the moment, you shoo it away like some bothersome fly, and say, “The timing is just not right.”
As a wellness coach it is my responsibility to help you realize your dreams and keep moving forward. Quit being paralyzed by your rational mind and commit to something. Find someone to hold you accountable. Now is the right time!!!
