M.O.V.E.: Motivation to be healthy

June 26th, 2013 | Exercise, Health Care, Muscular Endurance, Range of Motion, Wellness, Workout | 0 Comments

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!

EXECUTE.

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!

Celebrity Campaign to Patent Genes for Profit

May 19th, 2013 | Health Care, Natural Disease Remedies, Wellness | 0 Comments

When a celebrity gets involved the public perception is dramatically influenced even when your gut tells you something is wrong.  This is a portion of an  article that comes to us from Mike Adams of Naturalnews.com

Patenting human genes is huge business

Today, about 20 percent of your genes are already patented by corporations and universities. As the ACLU explains, “A gene patent holder has the right to prevent anyone from studying, testing or even looking at a gene. As a result, scientific research and genetic testing has been delayed, limited or even shut down due to concerns about gene patents.”

This means that when corporations own patents on human genes, it stifles scientific research while granting that corporation a monopoly over the “intellectual property” encoded in your own DNA! (How criminal is that? You decide…)

What this means is that if the Supreme Court rules against Myriad, it would set a precedent that would dismantle the entire human gene patenting industry, affecting trillions of dollars in future profits.

This, I believe, is the real reason behind Angelina Jolie’s announcement. It seems designed to invoke women’s emotional reactions and create a groundswell of support for corporate-owned genes, thereby handing these corporations a Supreme Court precedent that will ensure trillions in future profits. It’s a for-profit PR stunt that tries to trick women into supporting a corporate system of patents and monopolies that claims, right now, to own portions of the bodies of every woman living today.

While most media outlets have no clue about the patent issues at stake here, the Detroit Free Press took notice, saying:

“The Hollywood star’s decision to get tested for a breast cancer gene mutation, undergo a double mastectomy and then write about it calls attention to a case now pending before the court. The justices have just weeks to decide if Myriad Genetics’ patent on the two genes that can identify an increased risk of breast and ovarian cancer is legal. Critics complain that the company’s monopoly leaves them as the sole source of the $4,000 tests needed to determine each woman’s risk.”

Lying with statistics: Jolie’s 87% risk exaggeration

There’s more to this story than just the patents on BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes. Angelina Jolie is also using blatantly misleading statistics to terrify women into thinking their breasts might kill them.

In the NYT op-ed piece, Jolie claims her doctor told her she has an “87% risk” of developing breast cancer. But what she didn’t tell you is that this number doesn’t apply to the entire population: it’s actually old data derived almost exclusively from families that were previously documented to have very high risks of breast cancer to begin with.

A study published on the National Human Genome Research Institute website and conducted by scientists from the National Institutes of Health reveals that breast cancer risks associated with BRCA1 genes are significantly lower than what’s being hyped up by Jolie and the mainstream media.

In fact, in a large room of 600 women, only ONE will likely have a BRCA mutation in her genetic code. The actual incidence is 0.125 to 0.25 out of 100 women, or 1 in 400 to 1 in 800. I used 600 as the average of 400 and 800.

And out of that 1 in 600 women who has the mutation, her risk of breast cancer is only 56 percent, not 78 percent as claimed by Jolie. But 13 percent of women without the BRCA mutation get breast cancer anyway, according to this scientific research, so the increased risk is just 43 out of 100 women.

So what we’re really talking about here is 1 in 600 women having a BRCA gene mutation, then less than half of those getting cancer because of it. In other words, only about 1 in 1200 women will be affected by this.

Yet thanks to people like Jolie and the fear-mongering mainstream media, women all across the nation have been terrified into believing their breasts might kill them and the best way to handle the problem is to cut them off!

This, my friends, is the essence of doomsday fear mongering. This issue affects less than one-tenth of one percent of women but is being riled up into a nationwide fear campaign that just happens to feed profits into the for-profit cancer diagnosis and treatment industry, not to mention the monopolistic human gene patenting cartels.

That’s the real story of what’s happening here. Don’t expect to read this in the New York Times.

Corporate media refuses to mention real prevention and treatment options

As part of the breast cancer fear mongering and treatment scam now being run across the mainstream media, nearly all media sources are prohibiting any mention of holistic or natural options for treatment or prevention.

Sure, the media talks about “options,” but all those options just happen to lead back to the for-profit cancer industry. As an example, read this story by ABC News, part of the lying mainstream media that misinforms women and pushes a corporate agenda:

If you do test positive for BRCA, you have options, and you don’t necessarily have to go the Jolie route. Some women choose not to have surgery. Instead, they increase cancer surveillance with imaging tests. These include regular mammograms to test for breast cancer, and regular pelvic sonograms and blood-tests to watch for ovarian cancer.

Nowhere in this article does ABC News mention ways to suppress the BRCA1 gene by, for example, eating raw cruciferous vegetables containing Indole-3-Carbinol (I3C), a potent anti-cancer nutrient that halts breast cancer in its tracks. Nowhere does ABC News mention vitamin D which prevents nearly 4 out of 5 cancers of all types, including breast cancer.

Nope, the “options” being pushed by mainstream media are nothing more than mammograms, surgery, radiation and chemotherapy — all owned and run by the for-profit cancer industry that feeds on women and exploits their bodies for profit.

Nor is their any discussion of the total scam of the “pink ribbons” cancer cure industry which is primarily focused on giving women cancer through “free mammograms.” As any scientist or physicist already knows, mammograms cause cancer because they emit ionizing radiation directly into the breast and heart tissues. Get enough mammograms done and sooner or later they will detect breast cancer because they caused it! To date, 1.3 million women have been harmed by mammography.

Thanks, Angelina, for keeping the wool pulled over the eyes of women everywhere while selling out to for-profit, monopolistic, corporate interests that incessantly seek to exploit women for profit.

Angelina Jolie Was Lied to by Her Doctors

May 17th, 2013 | Exercise, Health Care, Wellness | 0 Comments

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.

by Mike Adams, NaturalNews.com

(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.

Here’s why…

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

In summary:

• 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.

I told you this was a controversial topic like religion and politics.  Please check out our “Turn Back the Clock 10 Years in the Next 45 Days”  for Lifestyle changes to create an optimum wellness environment and a body less likely to become cancerous.

FlexBuilding Muscle Fiber Stretching Helps Restore Muscle Function Following Surgery

January 10th, 2011 | Exercise, Flexibility, Health Care, Muscles, Range of Motion, Wellness, Workout | 36 Comments

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.

 

 

The Right Time

January 4th, 2011 | Exercise, Flexibility, Health Care, Wellness, Workout | 84 Comments

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!!!

Holiday Over Indulging

November 30th, 2010 | Exercise, Flexibility, Health Care, Wellness | 25 Comments

Okay, I did not get the opportunity to blog before Thanksgiving to give you the inspirational talk saying don’t over indulge in eating, drinking, etc.  However, now that the Thanksgiving holiday excess is over, what about the next five weeks?  Before you beat yourself up that you did, in fact, say “just one more sweet potato, piece of turkey, cranberry sauce, pumpkin, pie, spoonful of stuffing…” well, you get the picture, (you are laughing to yourself because it is true) there is a way out of this.

If you are trying to lose weight or trying to stick to an exercise program during the holiday, instead of making unrealistic goals just know that you are going to cut back on training, spend more time with family and hit it harder in a few weeks.  For now just coast.   What I have observed as a wellness consultant over twenty years is the “all or nothing” stance like, “I blew my diet so *&%# it, I am not exercising and I am going to eat whatever I want because it doesn’t matter anyway.”  Remember, “coasting” does not mean doing nothing.  You can always do FlexBuilding at home.

I hear the laughter again.  Laughing is good, at least that is a healthy release of emotion.  What is the goal behind your diet and exercise?  Isn’t it a better quality of life.  The old saying “Everything in Moderation” is timeless.  Straying from your diet and exercise to enjoy other aspects of life is well….LIFE.

Also, the new book is out and the FlexBuilding video ($29.94) to work along with the book is $24.95.  Just for the Holiday Season from December 1 to December 22 at 5:oo pm the book and video combination is only $34.95.   To order call 770-979-FLEX (3539).

Many Blessings to all of you this holiday and always,

Dr. Robert Pruni

The FlexBuilding Total Wellness blog is dedicated to all things natural.  It is my goal to educate as many people as possible about natural health, peak performance, optimal wellness, and how to establish a better mind-body connection.  Some of the concepts will originate from my own materials.  On some other concepts I will offer my opinions as to the benefit and value of other natural health approaches.  Topics will include everything from my full range of motion stretching with full range of motion resistance workout rehabilitation called FlexBuilding, to other options such as weight lifting, weight loss, neurofeedback training, and how the brain can be reprogrammed in cases of neurological disregulation syndromes.

It is also the intent of this blog to offer safe alternatives for highly ineffective, overutilized medical procedures and medication.  It is my genuine interest to evaluate the efficiency and effectiveness of all types of health care, medical or otherwise, and offer opinions so readers can make well thought-out , educated decisions in their own health care.

Many of you have heard the saying, “Nothing or no one is all good or all bad.”  The same holds true with professions and businesses.  It is our job as health care consumers to take in as much information as possible and formulate our own best strategy.  After all, this is the information age.

I look forward to sharing with you.
