Our Foods Can Influence How our Genes are Expressed

So often, sadly, I hear people resign themselves to their illness or ailment, i.e. Diabetes, Heart Disease, Arthritis, Over Fatness…blaming it on genetics. 

Well, it’s not just about our Blueprint (our Genetics).  How we live…what we eat or don’t eat…Whether we move…The stressors that we expose ourselves to…plus a myriad of other things significantly influence how that blueprint it interpreted and what instructions on that map are carried out.

My Knight in Shining Armor

I found myself in a tizzy…I wish this on no one!

Bare with me please…this story has two postive lessons but I have to describe the yucky stuff to portray the impact of the good…

I found myself in a storm of stress and upset.  My belly was twisting and my blood (pressure) was rising…This feeling that persisted for 2 weeks + while this situtation was unfolding.  NOT a good health influence.  This is a great example of how to tax the Adrenals… Continue reading

Carpe Diem

I have a lot to learn from my 16-year-old.

He said, “Mom, no one ever said we’re promised tomorrow…”

Here he is in what we call the “Vitality Pose” V-pose…taking a moment to feel his heart sing with all the gifts in his world.

I would love to see you in a V-pose.  Share one!

Any Day THIS Gift Could be Yours!

One of the most re-charging and uplifting activities you can do…

Get outdoors under the blue sky and electric clouds.  Receive the suns warmth and power. It will change your state…your chemical state and thus your emotional state.

The mental gravity you may be feeling will disappear.

The Fuzz Speech

Gil Hedley is brilliant in the way he explains how “cobwebs” grow in our bodies each day locking us down, making us feel stiff, bound and restricted.

Watch and learn why we benefit by moving every day in all directions.

A proper program prepares the body in three dimensions…in diverse angles, positions and motions so that you can do the activities you love with confidence, strength, safety and resiliency.

Fitness should care for and fortify our parts as we get older. By uniquely combining dynamic rocking-like motion with static holds, we accomplish flexibility, flushing the cells and lengthening the soft tissue to maintain supple, stable, happy and healthful joints.

Fitness is only one aspect of Vitality.

Thank you, Lenny Parracino for introducing this video to me!
