Starting to heat up, folks!

There is controversy on how much water one should drink.

What I can tell you is that in my 22 years of taking thousands of consultations of new patients which included a health history and what medications they took, the ones that were taking blood thinners and had a host of other health conditions, didn’t drink much water. Most of them said they didn’t like the taste or it made them “gag”.

I saw the pattern early on and spoke with a high school friend of mine, Dr Jerry Manoukian, M.D. who specializes in internal medicine and was chief of staff at a local hospital. He told me that when he admits patients into the hospital, the first thing he does is give the patients an intravenous drip of saline (a bag or 2). He told me that no matter what they were admitted for, 70% of the patients got better without any other intervention or procedure.

He said, “David, the world is dehydrated, and it shows up in the form of health conditions.”

In nature, fast moving streams are clear and clean and when water slows down and becomes stagnant and pools, it becomes a breeding ground for bacteria, algae, fungus and such and in the body, it is the same scenario.

If you believe that water is good for you, a good rule of thumb is to take in 1 ounce of fluid for every 2 pounds of body weight per day. Fruits and vegetables are up to 90% water and meats and cheeses are about 50% water and they will also help in your daily fluid intake. So you can count on your food giving you about 20% of your daily water intake.

PS. Caffeine and alcohol in any form are diuretics and will take water out of your body.

Are you a Nervous wreck?

Well, sometimes we can get that way, but it is our choice to stay there.

Staying a nervous wreck has no inherent qualities to create success in our lives, therefore we must fully understand that we must change our thoughts to what will help us out, instead of helping to destroy us.

Your Life and Health depends on it.

“Live Foods”

“Live” foods are simply foods that “grow”.

When we look at our eating habits in an evolutionary manner, we have come from eating “live” foods in the not to distant past to eating foods that are manufactured or processed which has stripped and altered the
food from it’s original state, not to mention foods that have their ingredients derived from a laboratory.

“Live” foods have a much higher vibration to them and is more in harmony with our vibration as living beings, which helps us stay healthy more than that of the foods that aren’t “live”.

Also when you cut live foods with a knife, the knife can be cleaned by running it through cold water…and that’s the way “live” foods go through your body…Clean.

No natural occurrence goes on and on.

It rains and it stops. The sun shines and then there is darkness. The
tide goes up and then goes down. Things bloom and then recede. We live
with nature and must do the same.

Work must be balanced by rest and play. If we balance our personal lives
with our business lives, we will not only have a happier personal life
but most likely be more energized at work. Some people may work 40 hours
a week but think about work for another 40 hours while they’re at home,
which makes them feel as though they have worked 80 hours a week. Which
boils down to being ineffective at work and at home.

Even at work, there must be a balancing act. Some of us that have a
highly focused job must balance our
attention with the balance of creative time. That’s why slack time is
recommended at work for our creative efforts. And at home, there must be
a balance of family and “you” time.

The fact is, if we are balanced and refreshed, we are happier and more productive at home and at
work. Therefore we must remember that when we play, we play and when we
work, we work.

Don’t adorn your Hero…

Be the Hero.

When we grew up, we all had Hero’s in our lives that we looked up to and adorned.

Whether they were a cartoon Hero, a Hero on TV or in the movies, or just someone in real life that we looked up to – we all had our Hero’s.

But as in growing older, there is always the time where the student becomes the teacher – and maybe it’s time for us to be our own Hero?

Just think of the skills and attributes that your childhood Hero had, and make them you own – and maybe over time, we might just need to wear a cape:)

When you have a challenge…

Concerning another, and you want to get even – Don’t, that is small thinking.

Understanding that when others give you the urge to get even, it is them and not you that has started the feelings, and it is up to us to keep the challenge with them.

By accepting the challenge, we are playing their game and not ours.
