I had to laugh watching Biggest Loser last night - the team that picked the morning workout. Complaining! Just get up and do it. I do it every morning. And see who lost the most pounds!
Have a great day everyone! Donna

A man was on a beach when he discovered an old lamp in the sand. He rubbed it and a genie popped out. The genie said "I will grant you three wishes. The only condition is that you cannot wish for more wishes." "Alright," said the man, "I wish for more genies."

he general public is still shopping at Walmart and common drugstores for synthetic multivitamins and calcium supplements. The bad news is what you don't know might hurt you.
Walking into a nutritional nightmare is easy if you don't know about supplements. Dangerous supplement's can reverse what you are trying to accomplish. If you pick a cheap poison off the corporate shelves, you're actually making things worse. Stop focusing on RDA percentages, and take a quick read of "other ingredients."
This is where one finds mind-blowing additives which are used to bind everything together, making your liver and kidneys toxic. The hit list includes synthetic sugars, talc, dyes, sodium benzoate, methylcellulose, carnauba wax, silicon or titanium dioxide, and much more.
A recipe for serious health problems, pharmaceutical giants market their supplements like they do fast food - cheap and easy to find. Topping the list are Centrum, Equate, One-A-Day, Flintstones.
For starters, the RDA was established in 1943, and then revised in 1974, shortly after the USDA recommended its "basic four food groups" in a leaflet called "Food for Fitness." Sadly, three of the four food groups were meat, dairy, and grains, which contribute to major diet-related diseases in the United States, a country where heart attacks strike more than 4,000 people a day and a third of the population gets cancer.
Parents, have you read the ingredients in your child's chewable multivitamins? You will see unnatural sweeteners like sucralose and sorbitol. Now some pills contain these because they prolong the shelf life, but what about shortening human life? Send your kids to school with nutrient rich snacks like goji berries and trail mixes.
The goal of a supplement is to promote a long and healthy life. But in a country where national healthcare doesn't exist and pharmaceutical companies make a fortune from illness, we can expect the trend of polluting supplements to continue. Even for Americans who do have medical coverage, the co-pays and deductibles for chronic care management far exceed the cost of quality, organic vitamins.
Body builders and cross trainers should be aware that 75% of the soy and whey protein shake mixes contain synthetic sugars. Zero use of supplements also proves to be a viable option.
Tim VanOrden, a 39 year old vegan body builder and fitness master in California, describes his nutrition program and his non-use of supplements: "My diet consists of uncooked, unprocessed, whole fruits, vegetables and a few nuts and seeds. I take no supplements of any kind and yet I build and carry too much muscle for a runner - figure that one out."
The body knows the difference between real and fake, and it always prefers real. Choose a local health food store where the staff is friendly, knowledgeable and cares about your health goals.

Why I only use top quality vitamin supplements! Read your labels! Have a great day, make good choices.
Hugs to all my SP friends! Donna

As we transition from summer to fall, many women feel overwhelmed by fall’s demands. Typically, there is a new schedule to adopt, perhaps because school has started or because traffic patterns have changed. Often, you notice an increased demand at work, as people return from vacation focused on completing projects before yearend. There will always be change and disorder. So it’s important is know how to restore equilibrium. That’s part of life and part of becoming better with age.
To help you rise above the chaos, let’s start with the most important tip: Give up trying to be Superwoman. Yes, you heard it here—it’s time to retire your cape!
Many women think they are supposed do it all on their own and perfectly, especially when their children are little. I know. I had a huge breast abscess and, ultimately, needed surgery, because I was trying to nurse my daughter exclusively while also working as hard—and as many nights—as the male doctors in my practice.
Trust me—you can’t give from an empty cup.
You also can’t function effectively without some structure, stress relief, or support!
Have a wonderful, fantastic Monday!

Here’s something you won’t hear in TV commercials or even from most doctors...
They want you to believe heart disease is caused by high cholesterol. And their solution is to take statin drugs to reduce your cholesterol.
But the thing is, cholesterol has very little to do with it. And the prescription drug “solutions” come with potentially harmful side effects.
What the “experts” don’t tell you – or don’t know – is that heart disease can be caused by toxins in your blood.
Toxins get into your blood stream from household chemicals, processed foods… even polluted air. And in today’s modern world, it can be extremely difficult to avoid them.
But I know of a way you can keep your blood clean and rid yourself of these harmful toxins. It’s called chelation.
Chelate comes from the Greek word for “claw.” Chelation is the process where a molecule (from a nutrient) grabs – like a claw – onto toxins that flow through your blood stream. Then it drags the toxins out of your system.
The three “claws” I use in my practice are “green foods.” And when you put them together, they naturally flush the toxins out of your body. They are:
Spirulina – This is the oldest food on earth. It’s also the world’s richest source of vitamins, minerals, iron, protein and a host of other nutrients.
Studies show that spirulina is a powerful detoxifier that not only improves circulation and helps maintain healthy blood pressure, but also helps detoxify your blood.1
Barley Grass – This leaf of the barley plant is made up of unique amino acids. It has the exact blend of amino acids, proteins, enzymes, vitamins and minerals you need for good health.
It creates a “cage” around toxins and carries them out of your body.
Chlorophyll – This green pigment is found in almost all plants and algae. It is critical to photosynthesis, which allows plants to obtain energy from light. In your body, chlorophyll connects to toxins and prevents them from being absorbed. And it sweeps free radicals and chemicals out of your system.
Despite their effectiveness, you’ll rarely see chelation – or other natural health alternatives – in mainstream media. That’s because if people started finding out about these alternatives, it could put pharmaceutical companies out of business.
