Get Young, Stay Young

Western health science is based on matter, its makeup, and its functions-- and watching the body run until it breaks. Then it tries to fix it. Eastern health science is based on energy, and how to use it for longevity, vitality, (power,) and for healing. It empowers the body, therefore warding-off sickness, disease and injury-- all preemptive efforts to keep the body from breaking.

The Medicine Of Animals

If human products are considered unnatural, dogs must be so too. Dogs did not occur in nature; we manufactured them out of wolves. To be our friends.

Some of the latest dog research I've seen is just incredible. Did you know that we are now training dogs to sniff out cancer? True story. Just like the singular smell of cadavers, cancer in humans can be picked up and signaled by trained dogs. Pretty neat.

Bicyling = Bad

Bicyling = Bad

I know, I know. Once again, I've hit you with the inflammatory headline. But I'll remind you ever so gently that in my blog, "Important Statistics on Sports Injuries" BICYCLING is the most injurious sport, and that is undisputed. Did you ever crash on a bike ? Did you ever see other people crash on a bike?

Unecessary $77.00 Dollar Medical Bill

Unecessary $77.00 Dollar Medical Bill

I contracted strep throat. I went to the doctor. I hate the throat swab worse than anything, seriously. The culture was positive for STREP; so she wrote me a prescript for antibiotics.

I got rid of it, but somehow contracted strep again after three weeks. I went back to the doctor, and told the receptionist I didn't want the throat swab. She implied I would probably still get one.

HealthCare in Austria, China & The U.S.

I have thought for a while that football contributes in part to the health problems in the U.S. Think about how many boys play football through the high school level, and how many males get injured in their football "career." It's a lot. Also consider that our national sport of football has very few people "doing" it; generally, we sit on the couch and "watch it."

Touch Yourself

Whether or not you believe in "chi," your body generates and circulates measurable electromagnetic energy.

Some of the hottest "emerging" technology is based on touch to focus that energy on points or areas of the body for health and healing.

Longevity and Immortality

Longevity and Immortality

It surprises me that most everyone wants to live forever-- or at least until they're 100-- and yet almost no one does what it takes to live that long. Most folks eat too much, drink too much, neglect their bodies, and continue stupid habits like smoking, watching too much TV, and improper sexual practices.

Brush Your Teeth; Practice Your Energy

Brush Your Teeth; Practice Your Energy

People brush their teeth to prevent problems in the future. It takes years to get a child to understand that if he or she doesn't take care of his teeth, they're going to rot and fall out.

So why don't you have the same relationship with your body? People exercise to look good, not for future health. You can look around and know that as you age, your body will begin to break down. First you lose the ability to jump and run. Then your balance gets weaker. Then you become prone to injuries.

Gentle Exercise

Gentle Exercise

My father was a track star in high school, and continued jogging almost every day. In his 30's, he was still a fantastic distance runner, placing well in running competitions. By age 42, his knees were done and he had to stop running completely.

Meat & Vegetables

Lots of kids don't want to eat their vegetables. With taste buds all over their little mouths, vegetables can seem bitter, or spicy or just gross. I for one could not stomach raw tomatoes because they reminded me of garbage. Mushrooms tasted like dirt, and olives were just crazy gross.

Muscle is Temporary; Joints are Forever

Some heated debate arose on a website that runs my blogs in tandem. While I am trying to start a revolution of better health, and freely offer excellent advice, some senior citizens argued with me that lifting weights is ALWAYS a good thing.

Strength Ain't The Way

I thought yoga was fad. Back in the 90's, all the ladies and metrosexual men were dashing into yoga classes and workshops. (I think Madonna had a lot to do with it) I was sure that yoga would be dead in ten years. I was wrong. But the way I see it, many who practice yoga still talk about how it builds strength.

Think Fasting

Fasting for a day is good for you. The so-called "godfather of fitness," Jack Lalane, learned much of his juicing and health techniques from a man named Paul Bragg. Bragg loved to teach people about the health benefits of water fasting. It will clean your system and help you start fresh.

Old People Should Not Lift Weights

Without medical doctors, we would sure be lost. They know all kinds of stuff about organs and bones and brains-- all kinds of stuff.

But when I read about some doctor suggesting seniors should lift weights, I throw up a little in my mouth. They don't call 'em DUMBELLS for nuthin'.

Massage: Pleasure & Pain

I took a real interest in massage when I was about 12. My mom and I would trade massages every evening. It was a good deal that continued through high school. When I graduated, my seven-year old sister gave me a gift certificate drawn in crayon, good for one head rub.

Chinese Herbs: Nutrition From Outer Space

Back in the days when I was a body- builder, I thought about nutrition as if my body were a race car or something like that. My muscles were like the engine, and they needed high-quality fuel to move me around. I needed protein and vitamins to repair broken-down parts. I stayed away from sugar because it just made me too heavy. I thought I was doing a pretty good job because "I looked good."
