Dear Elderly: Take Care of Business

Call to Action: Health is attainable at every age. There may be more layers to peel off, but  it's worth the effort.  

This blog post can be considered a continuation from the last one.  Scroll a bit and find it.  I was upset about the half finished news stories that warn the elderly to stay home because they are more prone to a viral illness.  

Who said they had to be prone to illness?  I call that age discrimination.  

If you watch my videos and listen to my explanations in the office, you know age just means you've had more time to accrue toxins in your body.  The stress of these toxins are fatiguing to the body.  They interfere with cellular function and tissues become weaker.  

But we know the body has the capacity to heal.  First, you must believe that you have that ability to heal.  And second, you have to teach yourself how to support the organ systems that work so hard for you. 

Now, you don't have to start a work out program at a cross fit gym like these folks, but aren't they inspiring?

The BFA (Brain First Always) Protocol is specially designed to help someone walk through the steps that improve brain and body function.  

You learn how to move the brain, feed the brain, and talk to the brain.  Check out my BFA Crash Course.

Irresponsible Medical Mouthpiece (More SOS)

If you are older or love someone who is older, listen up!

Call to Action:  You'd better check your pulse.  If you're not fired up, you are in a downward cycle of mental paralysis.

Dear Friends: 
I don't care how many times a day you check the news. When you do, however, ask yourself some questions.  Don't accept the short sound bites.  Completing the story is not part of the agenda. 

This is more of my SOS - Severe Opinion Syndrome. 

All you hear from the reporters is that this virus is impacting the older population.  If someone is considered at risk, they are told to avoid contact with other people and stay shut in.  

That's It?  As another week of emotional upheaval comes to an end, I want to start out the next week with a fresh perspective.  I have heard from people who are angry to be put off and ignored. Others are downright scared.  

If you remember any of my talks the most detrimental aspect of the fight or flight scenario is when someone reaches the point of freeze or faint.  This is when there is no fight left.  It is learned helplessness with extreme low energy and organ system failure.  

I am especially at the end of my rope with the reporting that does not offer the reasons why the elderly and immune compromised are at risk.  So, I am taking that on as my job.  

If you are at risk, you have the responsibility to change it.  You owe it to yourself to ask compelling questions to people who are going to give you the natural, non-drug answers.  

So, if you're older you're suppose to just sit in your living room wondering when you can go back out?  I know plenty of retired people who are not at the extreme point where they are waiting for permission to enjoy the outside world.  And they are doing fine.  However, there are others who are hesitating to live. This fear is so disabling and detrimental to the immune system. 

If you are concerned about your brain and immune health, get the information that explains why your cells may be toxic, and dysfunctional.  Find out why you have weakened, inflamed collagen that makes you feel sickly with no strength.  

I am angry at the actual medical doctors who go on TV to give interviews and stop short with actual life saving information.  I am not surprised but I am done with it.  

I am no smarter than anyone else.  So, I went to college for a decade.  Big deal.  I learned how to use big words instead of smaller words, but anyone can learn how the body works.  

You can inform yourself.  You can do the low tech / hands on activities that make a difference in your life.

If you want to save yourself some time, sign up for BFA Coaching so you can apply this information immediately to your life in a way that is meaningful and rewarding.

The information is all over my office, on the bulletin boards, on hand outs, on your individual PART plans, The BFA template, my videos, etc. 

You already have the tools.  I want to help you use them proficiently. 

Allow me to give you some encouragement right now: 

Digest this quote from Tony Robbins: 

“Your life changes the moment you make a new, congruent, and committed decision.” – Tony Robbins 

I am here to help you get beyond the incongruencies of the current world mind-set.  Your life can't change until you kick bad thinking our of your brain.  There's a great deal of old, outdated health information, I will help you navigate around.  While we have immense organizations working within financial incentives to provide ineffective health care, your own decisions matter.  "They" don't care if you are unhealthy.  You're just a statistic. Since you have to live with the consequences, get informed and make the better decisions. 

Thanks for reading this far.  You are not alone.

Set Up to Fail No More

Call to Action: I call on everyone to fully realize the perfect storm that was brewing (for years) to create this 2020 pandemic.  Now take the steps necessary to address the cellular damage from the  inflammation and toxins putting you at risk.

The emotional atmosphere has been unreal.  People are in a panic because they are convinced a virus is so unpredictable that they could be easily overcome with a serious illness. 

I cannot let this get soaked into  my psyche. I cannot let the news overtake my sense of discernment and common sense.  The cortisol flooding in the body because of fear is a major inhibitor of the immune system.  Emotional stress is probably much more dangerous.  

We've had virus scares in the past.  How do the numbers compare?  I don't know if I should obsess over comparisons.  

We've never been subjected to such egregious actions by our elected officials before.  How do we trust their information is accurate, well thought out, or useful?

Here's where I am today with the information I have gathered.  We need to understand why the worst of the worst are so sick and why there are others who recover easily.  

Different studies have shown the sickest people have underlying conditions that render their immune system dysfunctional.  There are folks who stayed home, took minimal medicines and did fine.  I've learned about others who followed holistic approaches with high does vitamins, ozone therapy and home nebulizing with great success (within the comfort of their own homes). 

We know from basic science that a virus such as corona has an envelop coating that can be dismantled externally with soap. Also within the body, a virus can be dissolved as long as the body has the capability to do so.  

Our best defense should have been building healthy bodies.  We are surrounded by viruses.  Our DNA contains viral components.  If this current virus is somehow different (and who can tell with all the differing viewpoints from various countries), we must be better prepared, not with the medical system -  but with our own health. 

We cannot assume the hospitals will be ready to help us.  Most of the care they provided was palliative while they watched people decline.  Now, it is realized ventilators are not the best approach.  
I am thankful many people had quick thinking doctors who looked "outside the box" to offer more individualized care.  

The worst risk factors for many in serious situations had high blood pressure, diabetes, lung problems, and obesity.  

The perfect storm was brewing for a long time and finally became a tsunami with:

  • emotional trauma, stress, fear, lack of individual control
  • chronic health problems related to long term inflammation and toxic damage
  • unprepared hospitals 
  • an insurance system that promotes financial incentive for ineffective approaches

We were set up to fail. 
It's time to reverse this trend. 

This is where we make the most progress.  While everyone is focused on a virus, we work on real change.  We now roll up our sleeves and tackle these long term health problems.  If you rely on medical advice given to you in a seven minute visit with your physician, you have to admit, it's time for different strategy. 

It takes real "hands on / low tech approaches" in your everyday life.
We address life style balance instead of symptoms and  tunnel vision treatments. 

Nothing has changed with my mission.  I will teach people to rebuild their bodies at the cellular level so they can have authentic health freedom.  

But I need your help.  I need to know about your stumbling blocks. 
I believe I have failed.  I did not communicate the seriousness of unchecked stress. How do I help you get past the hurdles that keep you from a better human experience?

BFA Coaching is how we unravel the stuck knot of stress.

Please Help Society Do Better

Call to Action: Use your influence to reshape the negativity going around. Fear is very damaging to the immune system.  The chiropractic philosophy promotes the life affirming intention of innate.  This is inspirational and healing.  If you need to understand it better, please let me know.  Doctor means teacher. Who is teaching you to embrace life?

My original title was: What's Wrong with Society? I want to sound more positive, but you have to admit there is negativity, as well that should move us to seek the positive and be positive. 

Someone I know is in the hospital.  This person had to go by ambulance, and was given a devastating diagnosis.  After about four days this person was finally given a sleep medication and finally was able to get a bit of improved sleep.  Mind you, nobody sleeps well in the hospital.  

There is no family allowed in the hospital.  No one is there to advocate.  This alone is disturbing. The person's mother called me to discuss the situation.  I am truly appreciative that I was trusted enough to be called.  The best advice I could give was to encourage them to get this person discharged and back home in a reasonable amount of time and make no other decisions yet. Receiving a diagnosis is so stressful that there must be some time in between any decision making.  

I was told there didn't seem to be enough staff on hand.  For a sick person, the waiting has to be excruciating.  Regardless of what is happening in the emergency rooms, (And our town is not overwhelmed) there are other suffering people who deserve to have adequate mental, spiritual, and physical care on the other floors of the hospital. 

I also know of a lady whose husband died of natural causes in the hospital.  She knew she would not be allowed in to see him.  She said her good-bye in their house.  He was alone for 4 days in the hospital.

I wish this experience on no one.  For some people this is irreparabl e harm.  We can do better than that. 

Fear becomes physical when it is inciting a cortisol response in the body.  This in turn weakens the lymphocytes that protect you from infection. 

We do not need to incite fear in each other.   

We don't need to keep fueling our fear with news shows that are counting their ratings hoping for a big payoff from sensational reporting coming from half truths.  

Our bodies are more than capable of healing from traumatic events, especially infections.  If you do not believe that, your lack of confidence is a major health risk.  

It's time to build that confidence  back up with some education and action.  We do it with the BFA Protocol.  Brain First Always.

You can release yourself from anything that doesn't serve you.  You have the power withing.  You can get more comfortable using this power.

Traitors Within!! (Avoid the Ugliness-We've Got Healing to Do)

Call to Action:  Don't deny yourself life affirming habits.  Don't be swayed by outdated information.  You know the truth. 

Something very demoralizing has been brewing lately.  Different professional organizations are trying to deter you from pursuing natural healing modalities during this covid crisis.  

Here is an example from the Dietitians of Canada:

Can I boost my immune system through my diet?

"Simply put, you cannot “boost” your immune system through diet and no specific food, supplement or natural health product will prevent you from catching COVID-19. Proper hygiene can help reduce the risk of infection or spreading infection to others.

To date, the Government of Canada has not approved any product to prevent, treat or cure COVID-19. Selling unauthorized health products or making false or misleading claims to prevent, treat or cure COVID-19 is illegal in Canada. More information can be found here."

** ** **
We know dietary induced inflammation puts a huge strain on the immune system.  I suspect they think people want a magic bullet, and don't want to encourage a supposed quick fix.  You and I know that  health is a product of years of beneficial habits. 

Why don't dietitians want to lead their clients to better health???  What's that all about?  Boggles my mind.  What are their goals at all?  Very disappointing.   

Possibly they don't want to give someone the wrong idea.  They take this all or nothing approach and shut down any thought of self care.  I find this problematic.  I also find this condescending
                                              *  *  *  
Certain chiropractors are discouraging, too.

In the chiropractic arena the Florida Chiropractic Society felt the need to respond to the World Federation of Chiropractic.  While the WFC is telling the public there is no scientific proof that chiropractic care improves the immune system, the FLC countered with an explanation that focuses on the positive (and studied) physiologic affects of a balanced nervous system which is a huge influence on the immune system.  

The WFC wants science  to prove a certain treatment gets the same results on everybody.  (If that was the case, we never would have had any kind of sickness ever in the history of the world.) This is a very simplistic outlook. 

This means they want to see the same response in every person, and probably in a short term setting.  We know everyone has his or her own health drawbacks, preexisting conditions, etc.  And we realize there is a rush to complete scientific studies, so we can't glean "perfect" findings.  

We know chiropractic plays a very beneficial role in long term health, but so much more is up to the individuals in their day to day routines.  

Why do I say we have traitors within?

There is obvious disagreement between the two groups.  The WFC sounds like it wants to cut off its own nose!  Why would a chiropractor deter people from seeking chiropractic care?  

That just burns me up!!!

The best way to convey chiropractic is with a one to one relationship with a chiropractor who listens to your concerns and takes the time to explain how to enhance your own healing power.  

So, I hate to bring up this ugly mess. As long as you're aware of it, you can turn to the chiropractors and nutritionists who are encouraging.  They will help you discover your own wellness within. 

Ultimately your future health is up to you.  But I don't want you to be confused by these disagreements.  

Be very careful when you hear certain public health announcements.   Strangers do not want to help you.  But I do.

See you at the table....
