Priority #1 Video

It is amazing where and from whom you learn the most important stuff: in this case it was while having my teeth cleaned.

What I like about this video is that, first, tai chi is never mentioned one time. And second, all of this wisdom and life-changing advice flows naturally in the learning and practice of… tai chi!

The last thing about this video that makes it priceless is that you are not hearing any of it from me. If you have heard it all from me in the past, perhaps this video will impress upon you the value of the information. If not, please take every word seriously – she makes one technical, little tiny, mistake, but the message is huge and everyone needs to hear it. You especially need to hear it if you plan to deliver via c-section, plan not to breast feed, or plan to feed your baby cow products… or if any of the above happened to you. (I know, you are wondering how and if all of those things are really related. They are.) Enjoy this amazingly important presentation.

State Secrets: You Heard It Here First

A very good friend told me at breakfast this morning that a person can give up being cynical (since it doesn’t help much in a transformational relationship). True enough. Then I got this article (below) in my email (and I was thoughtful of this recent Blog Post by me…). Welcome to the real world.

From the Friday, March 3, 2017 San Fransisco Chronicle…

SACRAMENTO — For years, state health officials kept secret a set of guidelines meant to inform the public about the risks associated with cell phone use and the best practices to avoid potential harm.

On Thursday, the California Department of Public Health released the guidelines, which advise cell phone users to keep the devices away from their bodies, keep calls short and to use the speaker phone on lengthy calls. The guidelines were released only after a Sacramento Superior Court judge indicated she would order them to be disclosed, and after The Chronicle told the state it was publishing a news story about the case.

The health department’s lawyers had argued in court that the guidelines were never formally approved by the agency and that releasing them to the public would cause unnecessary panic.

The two-page suggestions, which have been written and revised over the past seven years, are based on studies “that suggest that long-term cell phone use may increase the risk of brain cancer and other health problems,” according to the document, which includes a stamp saying it is a “draft and not for public release.”

My Notes From Last Week’s JP+ Event

12189625_1004349716306487_4999366956215085122_n

It was a wall-to-wall crowd, with folks standing in the back and along the walls on one side. The food was great; and there were (mostly healthy) drinks. But the main speaker was almost an hour late, so I left when he finished at 9 p.m. and didn’t listen to Dr. Mitra Ray.

For most part what John Blair had to say was all old news, or very predictable (JP+ is the best, and way out ahead of all of the rest of the supplements available – we already knew that.) There was some interesting information though, and I took notes. So here I will share with any who may be interested in learning a little more. (All, or most, of the blanks in my notes is filled in by dozens of Posts on the subject over the past ten years on this Blog, and by the JP+ website I get as a Representative: I keep the website so patients and others can access all they want to online, before contacting me to place an Order.)

So here are my notes:

JuicePlus+ John Blair Event

Lynnwood Convention Center

January 27, 2017

 

John Blair is the Sr. VP of JuicePlus+ – for 27 years

Research common threads… lifestyle diseases: chronic inflammation, immune dysfunction, oxidative stress, & obesity (obesity is going to pass heart disease as the #1 disease…causes of death)

Predation: death by predator (that used to be a big deal – ancestors – verses lifestyle now).

The JP+ study on smoking was done in Italy (big smoking problem there).

NIH, WHO, & NCI… the “5 a Day” push for fruits and vegetables in the daily diet was an effort to get the public to do something in the right direction, they knew it was actually 9-13 servings per day that is recommended in the research.

 

“Salt, Sugar, Fat” by Michael Moss – about how the food industry worked to find the ‘bliss point’ (brain chemistry) that would have humans keep eating more and more of their food.

 

San Bernardino, CA – first McDonald’s… Dire Straights song was about McDonald’s

 

SuperSize Me, the movie: what would happen in 30 days (gained over 24 pounds, etc.) and then how long it took to get back to normal (14 months)

“Younger Next Year” – a book – the over 50 crowd has to exercise 6 days a week (Chris Crowley)

ChooseMyPlate.gov – the government has figured it out (1/2 of the plate is fruits and vegetables!!), but no one is paying any attention!

70% of us are taking supplements regularly… isolated, fragmented, synthesized for the most part (COSTCO).

One study on supplements recently… higher risk of dying (all cause) for woman taking the supplements!

With the JP+ TRIO and the Complete you get over 40 fruits, vegetables, and berries (the TRIO alone has 30 whole foods)

 

The message of the RAINBOW DIET is (1) to get more colors, and (2) the more pigment the better (darker, e.g., the Vineyard Blend has lots of very dark berries!)

 

NSF – 3rd Party testing… all of their testing duplicates all the testing already done routinely by JP+

Plant Power

The most thoroughly researched name brand nutritional product on the market (JP+)

35 Medline published studies… compare to any other: none compare.

Over weight boys study… the researcher’s wife became a JP+ representative; the researcher went on to do the 35th JP+ study – he had the burning question (and the connections, resources, etc.)

Industry Conferences… as a Board member of the Council on Responsible Nutrition, and Past Chair, he attends many of these…. Where the talk is more and more about the microbiome… (turns our JP+ is way ahead of the curve and doing the research on how JP+ Trio + Complete affects the microbiome).

JP+ Children’s Health Study – there have now been 750,000 participants!

/////////

The CRN overlooks the quality control of the nutritional supplements industry. As past Chairman, Mr. Blair will share insights and trends affecting the industry and explain where JuicePlus+ sits in the bigger scheme of things nutritionally.

 

DESCRIPTION

Join John Blair, Sr. Vice President of the Juice Plus Company, to get a real look inside the Nutritional Supplementation Industry and the Quality control and Research behind Juice Plus.

John is responsible for leading the Juice PLUS+ Company into the field of nutrition, and was the developer of the manufacturing team that has produced the entire Juice PLUS+ product line since 1993.

“What’s in your supplement?”

That is the title to the feature article in the most recent Bottom Line’s Health In Action.

We have talked about it here many times and will be again at our Event on the 28th.

Here is some of what that article said:

“About one out of every four supplements sold in the US does not contain what is listed on the label or has other quality problems, according to tests performed by ConsumerLab.com”

The Labels are Not Accurate

“…last year, an investigation into the store-brand supplements of the biggest national retailers – Walmart, Target, GNC and Walgreens-found that man of thither products did not contain the herbs listed on their labels…others included ingredients that were not listed on their labels, some of which were potential allergens.”

“And the problem goes way beyond the the four big retailers above.”

“RISK: THE SUPPLEMENT IS CONTAMINATED WITH HEAVY METALS-SUCH AS LEAD, ARSENIC, AND CADMIUM-OR WITH TOXINS.”

“…because the industry at large goes unregulated, be sure to purchase only professional-grade vitamins and supplements that have undergone testing and quality assurance from a reputable supplier.”

Again, we have talked about it here literally hundreds of times, and will again next week, but the bottom line, really, is that you need to be careful who you trust. This and other articles may be part of an agenda to bring supplements under the control of the Government and the medical establishment: do you really want to trust them? They haven’t demonstrated themselves to be too trustworthy in my view. Further in the magazine there is another article talking about what supplements you should be taking. The whole idea that you should buy and take individual vitamins or minerals is close to 40 years behind the times: you need whole food and whole food supplements if you want to give your body nutrition in a way that it’s been used to dealing with for a million years. The idea that people who create vitamin & mineral formulas are smarter and know better and can second guess the body hasn’t panned out too well.

Join us Wednesday night, September 28th at 7 p.m. here at the office for an event that will help you make healthier choices. Call to RSVP (425) 348-5207.
