Tips to Avoid Flu Season

          As the fall advances one sure sign of winter is the arrival of the flu “bug” foisting misery on the many. As I covered extensively in my first book “Killing Yourself With Your Fork” (e-book is now $5! Via email), the healthy human body has very little chance to be “infected” no matter how virulent or extensive is the outbreak.

            Many well meaning health care providers have forgotten that “the terrain is everything, the pathogen is nothing.” As Louis Pasteur finally admitted on his death bed. Many experiments aiming to infect healthy bodies with all number of pathogens all failed to infect a healthy body. The healthy human body’s immune system is simply too powerful and destroys any invaders.

One of the primary reasons so many people get sick in the holiday season is lifestyle-related, we do it to ourselves. What do we do in the holidays? We over-eat, over drink, over stress, under exercise creating the terrain for all manner of infection by colds and flu. Here are some ideas to stay healthy through the critical next 6 weeks:

 

1)      Drink copious amounts of water with lemon in it (keeps you alkaline)

2)     Get good amounts of rest (being over-tired taxes the immune system)

3)     Relax and have fun NOT worrying about getting sick (worry and fear lower our vibration)

4)     Be regimented about exercising 3-6 times a week

5)     Get regular sunshine via walks

6)     Take 3000-5000 IU’s of vitamin D aka. the sunshine vitamin (gellules preferable) , keeps your mood upbeat

7)    Take a morning “green drink”, (I prefer Progressive Vege-Greens, no I don’t work for them!) available at all health food stores

8)     Ensure you get large amounts of “good” fats such as almonds, avocado, sunflower seeds

9)     Begin using a daily maxim affirming your heath, “I’m getting healthier and healthier every day!”

10)   Be appreciative of all you have and how good you have it in your life, you are abundant!

LIFE: TAKE-IT!

“Life is but a gift” Before you roll your eyes and tune out, please don’t! I know it’s clichéd and in this world of short attention spans that’s a no-no, but bear with me!There’s no easy way to say this: a close young (34 years old, I believe) friend of a family member has been diagnosed with stage 2 terminal pancreatic and liver cancer. Upon visiting his doctor 3 weeks ago with generalized pain, within 2 days the doctor asked him to get his financial affairs in order as he had but weeks to months to live. He is the proud father of a one year old daughter. I share this with you because it has been in my life’s forefront for the last few weeks, and I always write about what is important and very present to me.

I tell you this to use it as a backdrop for a few points I keep wrestling with myself.

  1. The first issue is obviously about living our lives in every moment as if this day was a gift and definitely not to be taken for granted but that one is obvious.
  2. Secondly, we were only given one body for this life. It has to last us for the whole journey and be as trouble free as possible so we can enjoy the years with full vitality and power. Sadly, most people treat their bodies very poorly, packing them with unhealthy food, sedentary movement habits (the body does best in motion) and worst perhaps of all is stress (external and self-created)
  3. Take chances and do the things you know you will regret if you don’t do them. Don’t live in a safe, “everyday is the same, let’s play it safe” bubble, you and the world deserve better.
  4. Do not ever give more than passing credence to what a health practitioner tells you about your health. Yes, they are experts on disease, but no they don’t know you, how you heal, etc. I believe what the doctor above said to the patient to be literally criminal. As smart as doctors are, what they give you is an informed opinion but not the truth. So many people have had “terminal” diagnoses and decided to focus and visualize on how their bodies were destroying invaders. It is now being taught to young doctors, don’t wait until yours gets the (late) memo. Once you accept someone else’s vision of your life, your subconscious makes it real and brings it.

To this young man I wish all the best and a “miraculous” (to science anyway) complete and full recovery, join me in sending your positive vibes!

That is all.
