I hate to say it but your doctor isn’t going to take good care of you. They will do their job to keep you alive and feeling ok and some of them will put in the extra effort to do a good job. They will not keep you at optimum health; that costs money. It’s not a concern if you are overweight and they will likely think you just need to stay away from the cheeseburgers or something. Your doctor isn’t going to tell you the stuff I’m about to tell you here.

One of the most overlooked nutrients we have is vitamin K2. When I mention K2 most people don’t know what I’m talking about and others say I get it in my cruciferous vegetables. The lack of vitamin K2 is what may be causing a lot of the blood clotting disorders in North American. Things like angina, heart attacks, pulmonary embolism, deep vein thrombosis, stroke, and T.I.A or mini stroke.
The main reason I do what I do is because I’ve seen what fitness has done for me. Of course it does a lot physically, I’m faster, stronger, feel better, look better, and move better in general, but it does way more. It created a lot of confidence for me which spilled over into every aspect of my life. That’s what I see in others as well. It starts with getting fitter and then confidence starts when someone accomplishes a goal. Confidence creates success for people.
The main thing I want to talk about is stress type insomnia. 75-80% of sleep problems are stress related. If you have trouble falling asleep or wake up for more than 30 minutes in the night, then this might be where you are. Obviously the stress is what needs to be dealt with and most people don’t realize their stress is high. Things like what you eat and toxins in your environment affect your stress as well.
I had a long busy shift at my EMS job the other day. I was reminded of the pleasures of having a demanding stressful job full time. For the whole day I was able to put my whole life on the back burner and not worry about my problems and it was fun. I theorized this might be why we live our lives in such high chronic stress mode.
My good man Gordon Downie just passed through town for the last time. I’m very sad I never got the chance to see him. I’m terribly heartbroken the Tragically Hip lead singer doesn’t have long to live. He is a Canadian icon and has a knack for Canadian references in his songs that sound so natural and unforced. No one can do it the way Gordon Downie can do it. FYI Trois Pistoles is a cute little town near the coast in Quebec that I passed through on my way to Gaspe.
Essential oils are a volatile organic compound found in plants; it’s the chemical the plant has to ward off bugs, bacteria, infection and disease. Essential oils are the plants immune system and natural healer for the plants. Essential oils are like sharp shooters killing only pathogens and cancer and leaving the good protective bacteria alone. There are therapeutic grade and non-therapeutic grade; if you’re buying the stuff at the grocery store you might be getting ripped off.
