9 Daily Changes To Lose Weight Fast

1. Take Interest In What The Label Says

Don’t read the label because it is what experts say you should do. Genuinely take interest in what you are eating beyond how it will impact your goals.

Learn enough about what goes into the foods that you can create your own diet without blindly following a plan.

2. Realize That Not all Fats Are The Same

Fats come in many forms, but are often lumped into one category… unhealthy. This is not true, we need fats for energy but some fats are better than others.

Sat/Trans Fats – These should be only eaten in moderation. It’s important to read the label here because more foods today are loaded with these two.

Mono/Poly – These are the good fats. They are in fact good for you and will support your goals if you make sure to keep them a priority and limit or even cut out the sat/trans fats.

3. Stop Taking Supplements

Supplements are often used as a crutch or a mechanism that allows an individual believe they are taking steps to be healthy. These products are meant only to add on to an already healthy diet. If you truly believed you were already healthy in your lifestyle, you wouldn’t be taking supplements.

The claims on the packaging are intended only to get you to buy them, realistically you probably won’t receive any of the benefits it claims to provide.

They are extremely expensive. You could by the freshest products from the grocery store with the money you save from not buying supplements.

4. Set Your Health Goals In A Tiered Fashion

If you get out of breathe walking up the stairs then a marathon might be out of the question for the moment. You’ll need to work up to the final goal.

An example could be: walk for 30 minutes everyday until it’s too easy, move up to walking with short running segments, try to run for extended distances, etc.

5. Buy A Juice Machine

Which would you rather consume, a basket full of fruits and vegetables that would take a considerable amount of time to eat and leave you really full? Or a glass of juice with all the nutrients and vitamins as that same basket without the time spent eating it.

A juice machine can greatly improve anyone’s life if one or two glasses are prepared and consumed eat day in addition to normal meals.

6. Chose A Role Model And Aspire To Be Like Them

This doesn’t mean chose your thin neighbor who eats fast food all day. They are not an ideal role model.

Chose someone who has already achieved what you wish to accomplish and talk to them if possible. See what worked for them and what didn’t. See what mistakes they made and what they found worked well.

Keep them in mind when making a decision that could affect your goals negatively. “Would she choose that for lunch if she was here?

7. Involve A Friend Who Is Attempting The Same Goals

Humans are competitive in nature. You will have an extra push to force a change in yourself for the better because someone is trying to beat you to it!

You’ll have someone to compared challenges or triumphs with. Your partner will be able to appreciate even a minor change you made because they are going through the same thing.

8. Make Exercising Non-Negotiable

Turn exercise into something that must be done. Not because it is a chore but rather because you will be disappointed in yourself if you fail to do so.

Set aside a certain time of the day for exercise so you are not trying to squeeze it in.

9. Make Sure People Around You Know What Your Goals Are

You will be more motivated to reach your goals if the people around you know what you are trying to do.

Look forward to their complements and comments when you complete your goals. If there are any naysayers, keep them in mind and prove them wrong.

Resolutionize Your Life

The New Year is quickly approaching. Yes folks, it is nearly 2011! Where did this year disappear?

Think back to last year on New Year’s Eve. What resolutions did you make? Did you resolve to lose weight, get out of debt, spend more time with the family, get healthy, workout, stop eating junk, make more money, find a better job or take that family vacation that you have all been wanting?

Were you successful?

What if I could show you a way to accomplish all of these things?

It is estimated that nearly $100 billion a year is spent in the fitness and diet industry. That’s right 1 Billion Dollars. Holy cow! Obviously, people are aware that the need to get healthy, lose weight and eat better. And we should. The US obesity rates are soaring. Take a look at these maps from the Centers of Disease Control – Search Obesity trends.

Our whole flipping country is overweight. It has become the norm. At the same time, we are spending $80 billion dollars a year on cardiovascular disease and diabetes rates are skyrocketing with an estimation of nearly 20% + of the population having diabetes, many undiagnosed.

Is it any wonder our health care costs are soaring through the roof?

Yet at the same time, one particular fast food restaurant is raking in $70 million dollars a day, feeding us junk. Is it the fast food chains fault? No, they just happen to be marketing geniuses. But we are still the ones that get in our cars, drive there, order the greasy hamburger, super large fries, a super large soft drink, and throw in a couple of those apple pie things-You can get two for a buck, What a deal! And we have just spent $6-$7 dollars for a calorically dense, nutritionally deficient meal. A couple hours later, we are hungry again.

So what can we do about it? It is obvious that we must change the way we think about our health and we have to lose the attitude that “It won’t happen to me.” It is happening to you and your significant other and you children and your grandchildren. We are allowing it to happen. We use every excuse that we can think of to justify our behaviors. No time to cook, no time to plan meals, the kids are begging for fast food, I don’t know how to cook, I am too tired etc.

So how do you make changes and, here is the biggie, stick to those changes??

The first step is that you must prioritize and understand that your health is #1. If you do not take care of yourself and change the way you approach your lifestyle, no one else will. And you won’t be around long to take care of your family and loved ones if you don’t.

The second step is you must make a commitment to changing your life. Schedule your “me” fitness time. Write it down, block out the time, turn off the phone. There are no exceptions to your me time. Whether you are scheduling 10 minutes at a time or 2 hours a day, this is your time to focus on you.

Next, take the time to actually plan your meals for the week. It really doesn’t take that long to put together a meal plan for the week. Don’t forget to include breakfast and lunch. Once your meals are planned, then make out your shopping list and stick to it. No impulse buying! Work on cutting out prepared, frozen meals. Although many of them are low calorie, they are often packed with tons of sodium and preservatives. And remember low calorie does not necessarily mean low fat. You must read labels! Have a favorite meal that you just can’t give up like fried chicken? I can show you a killer recipe for “fried” chicken that is low fat and low calorie and no one will know the difference!

So back to those New Year’s resolutions. How can you accomplish those? Wouldn’t you like to grab just a piece of that $100 billion a year industry? Just a tiny sliver could make all those resolutions become a reality.

You can do this and make a significant amount of money simply by helping other achieve their resolutions. Join me today to help resolutionize lives!

The Right Weight Loss Exercises Will Save Your Life

Weight loss exercises are a part of every solid weight loss plan. There are many different types of exercises to choose from and each has its pros and cons depending on your personality and lifestyle. Some people love to go to the gym, while others prefer to stay at home. Still others are bored by the four walls around them and choose to do their exercise outside come rain, sleet or even snow. Some individuals choose to set aside a specific time to do their exercise while others just incorporate it into their daily routines when it can fit in there. Examples of this include walking to work, parking as far away from the grocery store as possible so as to get in more of a walk, or taking the stairs instead of the elevator.

Finding the right weight loss exercises for you has much more to do with you than the exercise itself. what you are looking for is something that is safe, sustainable and, if possible, fun. If you’re the type of person who would never use the word “fun” to describe any type of activity, then choose something that you don’t mind doing as much as other things.

Walking is one of the most convenient forms of exercise because you can do it anywhere and set the pace yourself. It’s also easier on the joints than jogging and something that most people don’t mind doing often. To get the most benefits from walking, try to walk at a brisk pace and swing your arms. While walking is good for cardio, it does little in terms of strength-building which is also important.

Biking is a good choice for the cardio part of your exercise plan and it also builds muscles in your upper leg. It can be hard on the knees and more dangerous in terms of possible accidents (if you are riding your bike outside, as opposed to a stationary bike).

Aerobic dancing exercises the whole body and offers the extra social element as well which can be an advantage or disadvantage depending on your personality. You can also choose to incorporate weights into your aerobics routine to offer the extra resistance part of your training. The benefits of committing to an aerobics class are that you can meet friends and stick to a schedule. However, you can also do aerobics at home with the help of a DVD. Many people choose swimming as their exercise. Some good points with swimming is that it exercises every muscle in the body and isn’t hard on your joints.

However, you may be surprised to know that swimming is not considered the best exercise if your goal is to lose weight because it doesn’t increase your metabolism as much as land exercises do. Also, swimming builds less muscle because your muscles are supported by water as you exercise.

The right weight loss exercises very much depend on your state of mind, lifestyle and personality.

The Reason For Obesity and How to Reverse It

Why is so much money being put into advertising to flood us with TV and Magazine ads about food, especially Fast Food like McDonalds or Burger King. I really like the commercial for Carls Jr. where the model in the bikini is eating that HUGH, juicy, make a mess hamburger that you want right now.

And that’s the point. The simple fact, they want you to get fat. You definitely won’t be looking like that model if you eat to many of those hamburgers. They want you to get fat, so you can spend money on diet pills or whatever the big diet craze or fad is right now. So, you lose the weight and then end up going back to the bad habits and next thing you know its back on again, it’s a vicious cycle that’s hard to break.

A big fact we all need to understand is that the health condition for a majority of the people has deteriorated so much over the last few decades, it’s becoming a crisis. Experts says about 70% of just the adult population in the U.S. is overweight. Your a minority if your thin and healthy.

It’s really sad when you think about it, and it needs to change. It’s insane to think being overweight, out of shape and having all kinds of diseases is a way of life. nine out of ten people being obese is a bad stat to have, and this is where our country is heading. Obesity can also lead to heart problems, diabetes, stroke, circulation problems and for some unfortunately even death.

And one of the biggest problems is, were just to busy. We live fast paced lives, eat on the run. Were usually to tired or don’t have enough time to make a healthy meal at home. So we just grab something and it’s usually from fast food joint or something out of the deli at the market and then wonder where and why those pounds are packing on. Kids don’t even spend their time outside playing anymore, now it’s all about spending hours on the Xbox or Wii, hooked to the internet with their friends, so why go out. Yeah, I know all about that, I have teenage boys and if I don’t kick them off the Xbox and make them go out, they never would.

The simple fact is, people have become lazy. And the simple solution to being overweight is to make smarter food choices, prepare your own meals, get out and exercise, even if it’s just for a walk. If you did these things you wouldn’t have to worry about being fat. If this scares you, then you need to get a copy of my e-book, How to Create a Lean and Healthy Body Quickly. Do this and you will learn how to eat the right way, and keep it off too.

Calcium Needs At All Life Stages

It is the most abundant mineral in the body, present mainly in the bones and teeth. From the start, toddlers have an increased need for dietary calcium to support bone growth and skeletal development that takes place rapidly in the early years of life. This development and its need – continues into the teenage years and is particularly crucial for adolescent girls who need to stock their calcium supplies to prevent osteoporosis later in life. Adequate intake at this stage is needed to support ongoing bone growth and to achieve peak bone mass. It is an essential dietary element required in optimal amounts for good bone health, efficient nerve and muscle function, and overall cardiovascular health. Without enough of it throughout life, a person’s bones can begin to weaken over time. That can make it more difficult to stay active while also creating a higher risk of fractures and osteoporosis. A person’s bone density will generally reach its peak at roughly age 30, and then begin to fade after that. Adequate daily intake can help maintain proper bone density and help prevent osteoporosis – which creates porous and fragile bones. It makes up about three percent of the earth’s crust and is a basic component of most animals and plants. Eating a diet rich in calcium helps to restore it to the bones; supplements can help as well.

Why is calcium necessary?

It is known mostly for its role in building and maintaining strong bones and teeth, but it is also required for proper functioning of the heart, muscles and nervous system. It plays a role in maintaining normal blood pressure, regulating blood clotting. It is also associated with relieving mood swings, food cravings, and decreasing the pain, tenderness and bloating associated with premenstrual syndrome.

What are the deficiency signs?

Deficiency symptoms (also known as hypocalcemia) range from minor – numbness or tingling of the fingers, muscle cramps, lethargy and poor appetite – to more severe, including mental confusion, skeletal malformations, dermatitis, and in infants, delayed development. Illnesses such as osteoporosis (brittle, thin, porous bones that easily break) and rickets are also associated with a deficiency.

How much, and what kind, does an adult need?

If vitamin D levels are optimal, most adults should be able to meet their daily calcium needs via a varied diet. When individuals are unable to get enough of it through a diet or for those who may need more than the recommended daily allowance, supplements can help. Doctors recommends women supplement with 500 to 700 mg of calcium citrate in two divided doses taken with meals for a total of 1,000-1,200 mg a day from all sources. Supplementing with its citrate form, which is more easily absorbed than other forms, taken with half the dosage amount of magnesium.

How much does a child need?

The normal daily recommended intake for children is as follows: infants through three years of age is 400-800 mg; children between 4 and 10 years of age is 800 mg; adolescent males is 800-1,200 mg; and adolescent females is 800-1,200 mg daily.
How do you get enough from foods?

An abundant source of this mineral in the American diet is dairy products – two glasses of milk per day provide 1,000-1,200 mg. If you choose to get via dairy products – and this is not essential, as there are many other calcium-rich foods – make sure you use only hormone-free, organic dairy products to reduce your exposure to the antibiotics and hormones found in many dairy products. Non-dairy foods include: greens such as collards, mustard, kale, and bok choy; canned salmon (with bones) and sardines; tofu, soy milk, fruit juice and cereals; blackstrap molasses; and broccoli.

Are there any risks associated with too much?

Its supplements can be constipating, and should be balanced with magnesium as discussed above. Excessive amounts in the blood may have negative effects, including nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, and increased urination. More serious complications include kidney toxicity, confusion, and irregular heart rhythm. Studies indicate that men who take too much may have an increased risk of prostate cancer, and should limit their dietary intake to 500-600 mg daily from all sources.

Who should we take it as supplements?

It is an important mineral for the human body. It helps build and protect your teeth and bones. Getting enough of it over your lifetime can help prevent osteoporosis. Most people get it through their normal diet. Dairy foods and leafy green vegetables have high levels of calcium. Your health care provider will tell you if you need to take extra dose id required.

TYPES OF CALCIUM SUPPLEMENTS

Forms of calcium include:
Calcium Type
Pros
Calcium citrate (21% calcium)
Most easily absorbed
Calcium carbonate
Least expensive; has more elemental calcium

Calcium carbonate. Over-the-counter (OTC) antacid products contain it and these sources of it do not cost much. Each pill or chew provides 200 mg or more of calcium.

Calcium citrate. This is a more expensive form of calcium. It is absorbed well on an empty or full stomach. People with low levels of stomach acid (a condition that is more common in people over age 50) absorb this better than other forms.

HOW TO TAKE HIGHER DOSE

Increase the dose of your supplement slowly. Your provider may suggest that you start with 500 mg a day for a week, and then add more over time.Try to spread the extra dose you take over the day. DO NOT take more than 500 mg at a time. Taking it throughout the day will:

Allow more calcium to be absorbed

Cut down on side effects such as gas, bloating, and constipation
The total amount adults need every day from food and supplements:
19 to 50 years: 1,000 mg/day
51 to 70 years: Men – 1,000 mg/day; Women – 1,200 mg/day
71 years and over: 1,200 mg/day

SIDE EFFECTS AND SAFETY

DO NOT take more than the recommended amount of it. Try the following if you have side effects from taking extra calcium:

Drink more fluids.

Eat high-fiber foods

Switch to another form of calcium if the diet changes do not help.

Always tell your provider and pharmacist if you are taking extra dose. Its supplements may change the way your body absorbs some medicines. These include certain types of antibiotics and iron pills.

Are there any other special considerations?

Vitamin D is key to absorbing and so make sure to get adequate intake of vitamin D. Vitamin D, often referred to as the “sunshine vitamin,” is actually a fat-soluble hormone that the body can synthesize naturally. There are several forms, including two that are important to humans: D2 and D3. Vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) is synthesized by plants, and vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is synthesized by humans when skin is exposed to ultraviolet-B (UVB) rays from sunlight. The active form of the vitamin is calcitriol, synthesized from either D2 or D3 in the kidneys. Vitamin D helps to maintain normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus.

Vitamin K2 is a beneficial form of Vitamin K for bones. Unlike Vitamin K1 which is used to activate blood clotting proteins, Vitamin K2 is beneficial for activating proteins which help bind calcium to bones. Vitamin K2 is found in food but not in anywhere near the concentration found in Osteo-K. Taking Osteo-K helps boost daily intake of vitamin K2 to support bone health. Older people may need to take it in extra larger doses because they do not absorb it as well as younger people.

If you take oral vitamin D,you also need to take vitamin K2. Vitamin K2 helps to move calcium to proper areas where its needed and removes it from sites where it shouldn’t be present like arteries and soft tissues. When you take vitamin D, your body creates more of these vitamin K2-dependent proteins, the proteins that will move it around. They have a lot of potential health benefits. But until the K2 comes in to activate those proteins, those benefits aren’t realized. So, really, if you’re taking vitamin D, you’re creating an increased demand for K2. Vitamin K2 deficiency is one of the reason why people suffer from vitamin D toxicity symptoms which includes improper calcification leading to hardening of arteries. And vitamin D and K2 work together to strengthen your bones and improve your heart health.

It seems likely that 150 to 200 mgs of vitamin k2 is enough to activate your K2 dependent proteins to shuttle calcium to proper areas.

How can you tell that you are deficit of vitamin k2?

There is no specific tests for finding it. By assessing the lifestyle and diet you eat,one can find whether he is lacking the critical nutrients needed for the body. If you face following health conditions then you are likely deficient in vitamin K2.

Do you have osteoporosis?

Do you have heart disease?

Do you have diabetes?

If you are facing such symptoms, its better to think on deficiencies and take necessary steps.

The Top 10 Benefits and Uses of Essiac Tea

Essiac tea is an alternative health drink that is getting a lot of attention lately. It’s a tea that is comprised of several herbal elements include burdock, rhubarb, elm bark, and many other elements. It has been traced to being a major drink of indigenous tribes in North America. Researchers have been studying the drink for some time, and it has been shown to help the body in a number of ways. Drinking this on a regular basis could very well help with the following 10 benefits.

Liver Health

The first major benefit is in regard to the liver. The blend of herbs helps with cleaning the liver of toxicity. It can flush toxicity through the liver, and process it through the urine. With this tea, some individuals may see a reversal of issues related to jaundice. Which is a disease of the liver. While it’s not a miracle cure, it does support liver function, enzymes, and the removal of toxicity that can end up traveling through the body’s digestive tract. It can help boost immune system, and waste management, with a boost to the liver outright.

Ease Constipation

For individuals that are dealing with bowel movement issues, specifically constipation, this tea can help. The herbs can help soften the stool, and can help bring through enough fiber to help with intestinal distress. This is an easy laxative to take as it works with the body’s natural systems. It’s not a chemical stimulant, or harsh fibrous element. The herbs help the body manage waste, and assist with constipation with ease. There is no pain, or issue when taking this tea, as it helps the body within a few hours of drinking it, assuming the individual is struggling with constipation.

Iron Supplement

Essiac tea has a few key vitamins and minerals. One of the most common is iron. Iron is a very critical part of the body’s natural systems. With iron supplemented through tea drinking, you’ll find that the proteins in the blood help form red blood cells, and even help with reversing anemia. This strengthens circulation, and assists with proper production of hemoglobin. Staving off anemia is a great thing, and can help people that are struggling with diet and exercise, get a small boost in the right direction. It helps directly with the circulatory system, promoting heart health.

Blood Pressure Regulation

Those dealing with blood pressure issues, specifically high blood pressure, will find that the tea can help with circulation. It can help with lowering pressure, and regulating heartbeat. Those that utilize this as a calming drink, will find that it can help with a variety of different elements in the body. It can lower pressure, and even help with stress. It begins working within the first time taking it, and works as one drinks more of it through several days. Studies have shown that in a few days, pressure can significantly drop to safer levels.

Bone Health

Much like calcium, this tea can help with bone health. While it’s not the same compound as calcium, it does help with strengthening bone structure, and delivers a powerful mix of vitamins and minerals that the body utilizes to strengthen bone structure. There is a calcium element in this, but not as much as milk, but enough to help boost the body’s natural resources to help with strengthening bones that are susceptible, or may be weakening from injury, or malnutrition.

Energy Boost

While Essiac tea is not caffeinated like a cup of tea, there is an energy level boost given to drinkers of this tea. It’s done through an increase of vitamin-C, and B elements. By helping the body’s natural systems get a boost in vitamins, waking up becomes easier, and getting a little natural energy delivers on the premise that coffee does, without the crash. That’s right, there’s no crash, there’s no sleepiness after drinking this, instead, energy becomes natural, without stimulants. It has a balance that works with the body.

Helps Digest Food

Having problems digesting food? Upset stomach? Nausea? Well, the benefit that this tea gives the digestive system is immense. It helps bring about the right pH levels of the body. By stimulating the stomach to produce the right enzymes, and bile production from the glands, you’ll find that digestion is much easier. That means that eating will not be a chore, and you’ll reduce heart burn, acid reflux, and much more. This helps by adding a helping hand to the stomach’s acid, so that it stabilizes a bit easier. It becomes easier to enjoy your favorite foods, that’s for sure.

Regulate Sugar Levels

While this is not a cure for diabetes, it has been shown to help with insulin production. It can help with insulin secretion, and management. This can help lower blood sugar spikes, and help keep levels lower, although it’s not a replacement for any diabetes treatment. It can help people that are susceptible to blood sugar spikes. This can also help with boosting the pancreas’s levels as well. For those that are diabetic, the tea can help with kidney function, and help with reducing toxicity. It helps with urination, frequency, and quantity as well.

Help The Skin

Researchers exploring the benefits of Essiac Tea have found that it can help with skin care. Used as a topical solution it can help with anti-septic, and anti-inflammatory elements. It also helps from the inside out, providing skin care elements, reduction of acne, and even fine lines. Those that are looking to help with the signs of aging will see a boost in overall skin care in a few days. It helps the body with hormonal secretions and balance, helping the skin heal from the rays of the sun, to the interior of the dermal layers.

Promotes Weight Loss

The last major thing that you’re going to find with this tea is that it helps with losing weight. By helping the body’s digestive system, you may get a boost of metabolic ratio. That means that you will burn calories, even when asleep. Pushing the metabolic rate is a great thing, and can lead to faster weight loss, and sustained management in time.

How Do Strong Social and Community Ties Impact Your Health?

I called my friend, also named Lisa, who lives in Houston, Texas. Hurricane Harvey’s devastation had not only hit Houston, the fourth largest city in the United States, but many communities in the Gulf Coast region. According to my friend, who lives on the north side of Houston where they got no flooding except for those who were near a river or large body of water, the worst of the rain is over. People are leaving shelters scattered thought-out Harris County, where Houston is located.

Out of the 6.5 million people in the greater Houston area only about 1.5 million lost power and most all the water is drinkable. No need for ice, a valuable commodity, for many of us here in Charleston who experienced the wrath of Hurricane Hugo. Unlike Houston, Hurricane Hugo, also a category 4 storm, was a direct hit and as a result we not only got the flooding but also high winds. But no one can deny that the Houston area experienced the worst flooding in its history, with some areas getting as much as 50 inches of rain. And because Hurricane Harvey’s devastation was so widespread, it will take years for the region to recover from this natural disaster.

My friend, Lisa, who is originally from Charleston, knows about hurricanes and the emotional roller coaster they bring; the anxiety before the storm of not knowing exactly what is going to happen, the storm itself, the flooding and aftermath once the storm has passed. No doubt, you too, no matter where you call home, are aware of the horrific situation the residents of the Gulf Coast region, north of Brownsville, Texas, are now experiencing. Lives have been lost, people displaced and the uncertainty of what’s ahead. It is one thing to watch the news again and again and be reminded of the destruction and the anguish. But to just absorb the information without acting when we can help can be paralyzing and emotionally harmful.

Animals as well need help and assistance. Donate to the Houston Humane Society, which is helping animals affected by the storm. The Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund, administered by the Greater Houston Community Foundation, is another charity. You may also want to check out Charity Navigator to further ensure your donations are helping those in need.

By helping those in need, you too can benefit. Studies have shown that people with strong social and community ties tend to live longer, are less likely to report being depressed, and have a stronger a sense of belonging, purpose and self worth.

Myalgic Encephalomyelitis Recovery Testimonial

In 1989 I was medically diagnosed with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, due to chemical poisoning from pesticides such as 245-T, Network, Roundup, Asulox and Malathian and heavy metal poisoning from Mercury (due to toxicity from amalgam fillings in my teeth), aluminium and lead.

After consultations with many doctors, specialists and natural health therapists, including Homeopaths and Acupuncturists, I was told that I would never regain normal health again due to the length of time I had been ill with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis. At that time, I wasn’t able to work, couldn’t sleep at night, had no energy and reacted to almost everything I ate!

I was getting pretty desperate at that stage to get my health, life and career back to normal when I met Philip Rafferty while he was doing allergy testing in a health food store. As I already knew of my allergies, I thought I would put him to the test. You can imagine my surprise when in a couple of minutes of using Kinesiology; he was able to correctly identify what my allergies were.

My life at that time had been a real struggle. I had just undergone two years of medical treatment and was taking all the right remedies and nutrition; however, I was still suffering from extreme fatigue, hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar), chronic Candida, food allergies, poor concentration, short term memory loss, acne and had very little energy. I then decided to have several Kinesiology treatments, and to my surprise, I started feeling much better.

Kinesiology Got Rid Of My Allergies, Lots Of Health Issues And My Myalgic Encephalomyelitis
To help me understand, Philip explained that Kinesiology encompasses holistic health disciplines that use gentle manual muscle monitoring to obtain information about a person’s well-being. It may assist with pain, stress, allergies, TMJ problems, toxicity, heavy metals, candida, dehydration, learning, sabotages, and more. Kinesiology realigned the muscles in my body, and as the muscles are connected with the organs, puts the organs back into balance, and this allowed my body to assimilate nutrition and water properly. He said that by putting the muscles back into balance, that my body would be able to heal itself from Myalgic Encephalomyelitis.

While my muscles were out of balance, my body was using up all its energy just trying to function on a basic level, therefore leaving me with no energy to do anything else. After several Kinesiology treatments my food allergies reduced, my blood sugar came back to normal, the severe cystic acne on my face cleared dramatically, I started to gain weight and I had a lot more energy.

Amazing Results Recovering From Myalgic Encephlomylitis Lead Me To A New Career
At the time of seeing Philip Rafferty he started teaching Kinergetics, a new modality of Kinesiology here in Melbourne, Australia and asked me if I would be interested in learning this for myself. After having such amazing results and a full recovery from Myalgic Encephalomyelitis due to Kinesiology, I was curious to find out how it actually worked and why.

I found learning Kinergetics absolutely fascinating. After completing the whole series of eight levels of Kinergetics, I then trained to become a Kinergetics Instructor and began teaching Kinergetics in 1994.

Always interested to learn and grow more, I went on to attain a “Diploma on Health Sciences in Holistic Kinesiology” at the Kinesiology College for Energetic Sciences in Carlton, Melbourne, Australia.

I love practicing and teaching Kinesiology and Kinergetics, and seeing the life-changing results in my clients and mentoring students. I continue to work using my Kinesiology skills and knowledge using Transformation Coaching working with many people all around the world.

I work with clients with a broad range of issues relating to Myalgic Encephalomylitis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Lyme Disease including resolving allergies, candida, heavy metal toxicity, emotional issues, stress, pain, TMJ, dehydration, sabotage and much more.

Things That Are Expected From a 24 Hour Emergency Doctor

More than the regular doctor who visits a clinic or a hospital, a 24 hour emergency doctor service is essential. Medical emergencies may crop up anytime. These situations are inevitable and irrespective of the nature of the emergency, an immediate helping hand is essential. Numerous hospitals have emergency medical services like a 24 hour emergency doctor service even after the visiting hours. Though any helping hand is welcomed at the time of adversity or an emergency, there a couple of things that are expected from a doctor, regardless the situation at hand.

• Always available: Emergency medical services comprises of two different parts. First is the pre-hospital care given to a patient and this includes the first aid measures taken. It also includes the transportation of the patient from the place of emergency to a hospital for which the ambulance services are used. The second division of the emergency service involves the transfer of the patient from one hospital to another in the case of an emergency or a need of better treatment and care.

• Transparency: A long drag speech in medical jargons and a series of tests and an illegible prescription is not what is expected of a doctor. In the case of an emergency, you need a clear picture of what is happening and not a haphazard answer. A 24 hour emergency doctor is expected to be dedicated and passionate about his work and understands the mental state of not only the patient but also the people with him. Telling what things mean, and what is to be done immediately is well appreciated.

• Respects you and your emotions: An ideal doctor must be able to listen to you actively, your problems and your worries without interrupting and intimidating you. In this busy world, rushed appointments have become a common thing, and it neither benefits the patients nor the doctor. More than respecting your time, it is essential that you are able to connect with your doctor emotionally as well. A certain level of trust and confidence is essential to make things easier for both. A clear idea of the big picture is essential before coming to conclusions and taking a decision.

• Makes decisions with you and not for you: You should always be a part of any decision that is taken for you. An ideal doctor must be able to understand that you know your body and routines better than anyone else. You have the right to ask questions regarding any tests or medicines prescribed to you, and a doctor is answerable to any of your doubts.

• Shouldn’t Keep money in mind: Doctors are one the most respected people in the society. It is a service that requires a lot of ethics, commitment and passion. A doctor cannot be successful if he just money-minded. The life-saving profession should be done as a service and not as a job.

Things To Keep In Mind When Choosing Laser Resurfacing Treatment

Gone are the days when you had to undergo invasive cosmetic surgery to take years off your skin. Today, laser resurfacing treatment helps to do away with wrinkles, fine lines, blemishes and the appearance of pores in a faster and more efficient way. Here are a few things to keep in mind, when opting for laser resurfacing procedure.

The Time When You Have Laser Treatment Conducted

Laser treated skin is more sensitive to sun exposure for at least one year after you perform the procedure. Many surgeons recommend going in for acne scar treatment and other kinds of skin treatment during the winter months. This is because, daytime hours are shorter and you spend most of your time indoors.

Laser Treatment May Or May Not Hurt

Most patients and doctors tell you that the pain can resemble a rubber band snapping against your skin. But all in all, it depends upon the area and depth of treatment, the laser and an individual’s endurance level. Some types of skin treatment require an anesthetic injection or intravenous sedation.

Choose Your Laser Treatment Professionals Wisely

It goes without saying that skin tightening, microdermabrasion or laser hair removal is the most effective and result oriented when performed by a qualified professional. An amateur won’t be able to offer accurate and desirable results. Opt for a professional based on their qualification, experience and training.

Your Skin Reacts To Certain Medications after Laser Treatment

Make sure your practitioner is well aware about your medical history and the kind of supplements and medication you are currently taking. A surgeon, who is unaware about your situation, can unknowingly prescribe medications which can cause skin reactions. It is best to keep all your cards on the table to avoid complications and speed up recovery.

Consider Going In For Multiple Treatments

Sometimes you may need more than one treatment to feel satisfied with the results. In these situations you need to be patient, take your prescribed medications and ensure you follow the doctor’s advice to the T. Once the treatment is complete, you are sure to be rewarded as the results you obtain are long lasting.

If you are thinking about going in for a laser treatment, make sure you consult a knowledgeable and well experienced professional who knows the nuances that go into these kinds of procedures. Rest assured, you get the skin you want and look younger even though age tells you otherwise.
