The Guide To The Perfect Day

Engineering a blissful and productive day requires some forethought and a degree of creating healthy and productive rituals. Here is a sample of some of the ones I use to ensure an amazing day .
First off, have a warm shower and then blast out cold water onto yourself paying particular attention to your shoulder area, as long as you can tolerate, please. This area is rich in Glut 4 receptors and brown fat. What??!!! I hear you ask? Basically it will make you burn fat better and make you more insulin sensitive.

The Big Cholesterol Myth

Cholesterol has been cited as the key reason behind heart disease, it has led people to eschew eating fat for fear that it will clog their arteries and have them keeling over dead in ten minutes. They religiously go to the doctors to get their levels monitored and feel relieved when they are told their cholesterol is low or normal.

Well, I am here to tell you...it's all total cobblers.

I was first introduced to the myth of cholesterol by legendary Olympic strength Coach, Charles Poliquin, during a Biosignature course I attended, Needless to say I was shocked when he stated what a minor player it was in heart disease and that the greatest cardiovascular risk factor came from having high levels of the dangerous amino acid, homocysteine (this is an issue I will address in another article).

What is your hip pain telling you?

An issue close to my heart is what causes chronic illness and how to resolve it

 Along my inquiries I encountered the remarkable concept of Meta Health, the theory that all chronic dis-ease is caused by unresolved trauma locked into the body. The body is constantly trying to clear this but is sometimes locked into a negative feedback loop.

So for todays subject we will look at something VERY close to home ~hip pain and disorders.

What is the metaphor at work here and how can we help resolve it?

What on earth is a UDIN ?





In Meta-Medicine, the stimulus to the entire disease process is the UDIN or Specific Emotional Event.

It starts the whole illness process off. How long it lasts, whether it becomes chronic or life threatening depends on whether we are able to avoid it being re-triggered or whether we are able to  resolve the underlying problem in its entirety,

So what is a UDIN, and how does it come about?

A UDIN is Unexpected, Dramatic, Isolating and there is No Strategy for it.

If you find yourself suddenly involved in an unexpected dramatic situation, we go automatically into the COLD phase, we are stressed.

What Is Meta-Medicine?

I am proud to announce that I have begun a new process in my Personal Training developement - Meta Medicine. Under the tutelage of Master Coach, Sam Thorpe, this promises to be a new paradigm in assessing and diagnosing client illnesses and injuries. Called Meta-Medicine, it is an integrative approach to the Spiritual, Environmental, Diet, Physical, Psychological and Emotional realms.

Here is a thought - if you became ill, and the situation persisted, what if...your body DIDN'T make a mistake.

What is your body telling you about your life?

My first yoga instructor told me that our body is a locked in history of our emotional state. Biosignature  modulation, pioneered by Charles Poliquin states that hormonal imbalances make you store fat in certain specific places (ie. Stress makes you fat around your stomach) and Traditional Chinese medicine states that the internal organs can house negative emotions (kidneys - fear, lungs - grief, liver - anger, spleen - worry, heart - sadness).

So what is YOUR body telling you right now about your emotional state?

What is Emotional Freedom Technique?

EFT works in the same way as clearing an obstacle to clear running water does.
Energy flows through us in much the same way as a river flows cross country. However, over time, debris, stones and rubbish accumulate(negative emotions, limiting or damaging beliefs in the Energy Body).
Eventually the river may find itself blocked or dammed up and its gentle flow disrupted, stagnated or its path altered.
EFT seeks simply to remove these blockages, the beauty being that this process often doesn’t require much work – once the boulders of emotional pain, negative self-talk and limiting beliefs are removed the river will flow to the full power of its remarkable potential.

Fish Oil And Prostate Cancer

There was a recent media feeding frenzy over the "revelation" that fish oil could cause prostate cancer. However the problem was that even the people who conducted the study conceded that there was no empirical link! This was because the study was an epidemiological one which attempts to show CORRELATION and not CAUSATION. There is a huge difference (this is discussed entertainingly in the link at the bottom of this article by nutrition expert Dr John Berardi).
 
Why do these studies make it into the media?

Asparagus Wee

One of the principal questions I ask new clients is: "Does your urine smell of asparagus when you eat it". If the answer is "yes", we have a problem..
 
Contrary to popular belief, "asparagus wee" is not a normal, nor desirable by-product of eating this vegetable. It is symptomatic of the MTHFR gene (methylene tetra hydra folate reductase gene) and is THE key risk factor for cardiovascular health (just ask Dr Mark Houston from the Nashville Hypertension Institute).
