First Round for 20 Women on Grand Bahama Island
Do you feel a lack of motivation and energy? Do you know intuitively that you don’t live your highest potential? Do you wake up in the morning with worries about your future? Do you create long to-do lists that seldom get accomplished?
Are you sacrificing playtime for what you think you have to do?
Could your body look better, healthier, and more energetic?
Do you feel stuck in a routine, with little pleasure and joy?
Do you feel that achieving success and abundance is hard?
Celebrating a Small Country With a Big Vision for its Future
- Jul 13, 2012 - 2:24:30 AM
Today on the date of July 10th The Bahamas celebrates its 39th Birthday of an independent country.
The highest value of Independence lies in the gift of free choice and
self-determination. I believe that it is not just the absence of
dictatorship or slavery that elevates Democracy to the desired form of
government, but what the people who have achieved this state of
self-rule actually do as a whole.
Are Bahamians an independent people?
Birthing Gently Into the New World Age
- Jan 5, 2010 - 11:29:10 PM
there anybody who has not yet heard about the significance of 2012?
is it? What is fact, what is fiction?
a doubt, the world is changing rapidly. The very survival of our species may be
at risk if we ignore the present signs and those of the past.
of the signs are: global warming, increasing violence and fear, economical
hardship, collapse of the financial systems, rapid depletion of our natural
food and energy resources... and the list goes on...
The Law of Your Life
- Dec 7, 2009 - 9:16:56 AM
This may sound like a heavy title. You
see I really want your attention here. I will wrap up my one year of
writing articles for you that (hopefully) helped you in some ways, or
at least induced a reaction of agreement, disagreement or stimulation
to think for yourself.
Today I want to talk about
the law of life; your life as much as mine and everybody else’s. You
may think “Oh I know, it is about balance and taking the golden middle
path in life”. Yes, but the law of life is much more precise than
that. You see, the law of life is not like the man-made laws that change
from country to country and throughout time.
The law of life is universal and systemic.
It is mathematics and physics and applies whether you believe in it,
What else relieves stress?
- Nov 26, 2009 - 10:36:26 PM
In two of my recent articles I shed some light
on how your brain’s chemicals affect your mood.
Maybe that was an eye opener, explaining
your “run away train” brain that had you like a puppet; out of control.
If you were able to balance your Gaba, Melatonin, Tryptophane, and Serotonin,
you should feel some relief. But, like so often, it may not be the total
solution to your problems. So, what else relieves stress and anxiety?
Of course your mind has a powerful role in how you feel, and I will
go much deeper into that in a future article. What you may not know
is that what you eat has a strong effect on your physical and mental,
even your emotional, well being. How?
How your brain affects your personality
- Nov 17, 2009 - 12:53:18 PM
In a previous article I told you a bit about
low Gaba and Serotonin levels in your brain, and how such a lack may
throw you into many unpleasant and stressful condition. I received many
calls and visits after that article. So many of you could identify with
the conditions of low Gaba and low Serotonin. Of course there is seldom
just one factor that creates a certain condition; our bodies are complex
and it takes a holistic approach, and sometimes medical for an acute
situation, to bring back synergy and balance.
Today I want to introduce
to you the other two brain chemicals that are important to be balanced.
What I do
not mean by that is that Gaba, Serotonin, Acetylcholine
and Dopamine should be present in equally divided amounts; far from
it. But you do have all four present in your brain. Whichever dominates
gives your personality a certain trait...
Tap and breathe away stress!
- Nov 10, 2009 - 3:38:44 PM
Tapping your stress away? Yes, and I
am not talking about ‘tap dancing’ here, although that sounds like
fun also and it may work, while you tap-dance (smile). What I am talking
about here is a method called: EFT, which stands for ‘Emotional Freedom
In order to understand why EFT is so
successful in stress relief amongst many other issues like pain relief,
phobias addictions etc., is that it influences the energy flow along
the meridians in your body.
Just imagine a road net
of interstates and highways. Our meridians are like highways, or energy
lines that connect important organs and body systems with each other.
When you feel well, the roads (meridians) are open, which allows the
energy (traffic) to run smoothly along these paths...
If you have anxiety and stress... Your brain chemicals may be out of balance
- Oct 8, 2009 - 1:02:23 PM
I've previously told you about the
importance of amino acids. The balance of your brain, including your
mood, is dependent on four major amino acids:
Dopamine, Acetylcholine, GABA and Serotonin.
The following is a quick description of these:Dopamine gives your brain the 'firing power'. If your brain produces
enough Dopamine, you feel energized, alert and aware of what is going
on around you.
So let us just say that Dopamine provides you with brainpower. Acetylcholine makes you smarter...
What is a Glycemic Index?
- Sep 21, 2009 - 10:38:09 AM
So what is a GI? No, it does not stand for
‘GI Joe’, but it measures how quickly the food you eat turn into sugar in your
blood stream. That means that foods with a high GI value turn into blood sugar
very quickly; they create a sugar rush, which spikes your output of insulin
rather suddenly. There is usually a ‘crash’ after the ‘rush’. Have you ever
noticed the energy spike when you eat something sweet? Do you also remember the
sluggishness or fatigue that follows rather quickly afterwards?
can be a dangerous legal drug. If you are diabetic or pre-diabetic or your
family has a history of diabetes, you need to take action as soon as possible
in order to reverse or prevent this awful and life threatening disease. The
first call for action is knowing the glycemic index ( GI ) of food in general
and especially of the foods you eat regularly.
The sweet kiss of death
- Sep 14, 2009 - 3:03:06 AM
Yes, this is what ignored and uncontrolled diabetes is. Recently I saw a TV commercial for a diabetes- testing device. The actor said, and I paraphrase: “When my doctor said I had diabetes, I thought: that’s all it is? And I was relieved”. Well I could not believe what I heard, but it made me aware of the casual approach toward diabetes, which is rampant in the Bahamas. Most people do not want to speak about their cancer, it is scary and may signal a death sentence, yet diabetes seems to be a more casual condition. It is not!
If you have been diagnosed with diabetes and ignore it, you are in a high- risk category (up to 80%)for the following fatal diseases: heart and kidney failure, and stroke. Other debilitating diseases include: retinopathy (which is the shriveling up of tiny blood vessels in your eyes, leading to blindness), neuropathy, which is nerve damage that does not only affect your hands and feet...
Good pain and bad pain
- Sep 9, 2009 - 3:57:28 PM
You may think that nothing can be ‘good’ about feeling pain. Although I agree that pain never feels good, you should feel blessed that this sensation may alert you to a potentially dangerous situation in your body. People with an impaired nervous system due to advanced type 2 diabetes or a severing of nerves due to an accident or other conditions that cuts off the sensory system in parts of their bodies, can attest to this. So, at times, we do need to feel pain in order to take appropriate actions towards our state of health.
As a rule of thumb: you should be attentive to the signal of pain and investigate its cause. Usually there is a site of inflammation and/or swelling of tissue, although this is not always the case, like in neuropathy. Some damage to nerves can arrive without sensations of pain; sometimes it is a tingling or numbness in your extremities like your feet, legs, arms or fingers...
How balanced is your life?
- Sep 2, 2009 - 10:11:58 AM
Balance should be a natural state for us, but is it? Do you
sometimes feel that you want to stop the world, even just for a moment, to
catch up? Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed and unable to complete all the
items on your ‘to do list’? Do you sometimes feel that time is speeding up,
giving you less time to do what you were able to do years ago? If you say ‘yes’
to most or all of my questions, welcome, and you are not alone. If you believe
it or not, time is actually speeding up, and yes, we do have more to do, or so
was a time
when we basically just had your profession, or work, and family. Time
naturally balanced between work time and free time to pursue private
interests. Without computers, air travel, instant messaging etc. our
lives would be more focused within our families and communities...
What you eat and think may trigger pain
- Aug 17, 2009 - 7:02:59 PM
Lingering pain and low- grade inflammation are two of the
most common health complaints I hear from my clients. Pain you feel, of course,
but low- grade inflammation is a silent enemy that can slowly destroy your health.
Although I can predict with a high degree of probability that your body is in
some kind of stress from inflammation if you eat a typical North American, or
Bahamian diet, you should insist on a special blood test on your next routine
checkup. The blood test that detects systemic inflammation in your body is
called a “C-reactive protein level test” or CRP for short. When the liver makes
more C-reactive protein than the body can deal with, inflammation occurs
throughout the body.
Natural Substitutes for Toxic Ingredients
- Aug 2, 2009 - 8:43:37 AM
In my last article I named a few commonly used items with
toxic ingredients that may be hazardous to your health. Today I will give you a
few options to replace these substances with natural alternatives that you can
easily mix yourself or come by. Also, let us not forget your thoughts, which
can be toxic and therefore threatening your well being also.
Let us go through a
typical day and see the different choices you could implement:
You wake up in the morning...what is your first thought? If
it is anything that does not make you smile, immediately replace it with a
thought of gratitude for the miracle of being alive. Every day is filled with
new opportunities; yes there are always opportunities if you are open and
aware! Your next thought could be one of gratitude for all the good things in
your life. If you only think of one or two things...
We live in a toxic soup
- Jul 29, 2009 - 2:08:00 PM
You have probably slept on a mattress that was bathed in flame retarding
chemicals during manufacture, and still emits small molecules of formaldehyde
gas, which is a proven cancer causing chemical. Getting out of bed, on your way
to the bathroom, you may walk with your bare feet over a synthetic carpet that
was treated with benzene, styrene, or other cancer causing agents. If you don’t
have a carpet, you may walk on tiles that were washed with chlorine or other
chemical household cleaning agent. You absorb these chemicals through the soles
of your feet, where they go directly into your blood stream.
When you reach the bathroom, you probably wash your face with tap water,
which contains chlorine, fluoride, and even traces of pharmaceutical drugs and
herbicides that leached into the ground water. Since your skin is your largest
organ, it absorbs toxins very readily. When you step into the shower, even a
greater amount of these toxic substances are forced into your skin...
One more thing about Hormones...
- Jul 23, 2009 - 1:51:42 PM
In my last article, "The Truth About Menopause" I told you why I think it is so very
important to balance your hormones. Since I spoke mostly about the female
hormone ‘Estrogen’, I need to speak a little bit more about the other important
female hormone ‘Progesterone’. Sorry guys, this article still addresses mostly
female issues, but if you have a woman in your life you care about, it would be
good for you to know a bit about female health issues too. It does not matter
whether the female is your spouse, girl friend, sister, or mother. In general,
females do not get enough support from males in their lives, which lead to miss
understandings and often make a woman suffer silently. If you show some
interest in your woman’s specific female related health issues, your
communication with her, and a deeper bonding will be almost guaranteed...
The Truth About Menopause
- Jul 14, 2009 - 10:15:31 AM
You either love it, or hate it, or just suffer bravely
through it, if you are a woman.
All women have to go through menopause; it’s as certain as
‘death and taxes’. The only difference is how a woman experiences menopause.
The word ‘menopause’ is self- explanatory; it means that menstruation stops and
the childbearing years are over.
For some women this
is a true blessing because they don’t have to worry about pregnancies anymore,
but for some it feels like a part of their womanhood is disappearing. This
makes menopause as much of a physical event as a mental and emotional one. Men
usually just look on, either with amusement about the obvious changes in their
partner, or they are scared and irritated because they don’t understand the
‘new woman’ they are now dealing with...
Are Mammograms Really Safe?
- Jul 6, 2009 - 4:47:18 PM
I often marvel at the incredible progress science has made in many areas of medicine. The unraveling of our DNA and understanding its coding, stem cell research and its mind boggling possibilities to re-grow nerves, tissue, and complex organs, including the entire anti aging research. If we think of aging as an inevitable disease ridden path into our ‘golden years’, I am all for appropriate measures and interventions to prevent this.
There is no reason why we should not live a long life that is energetic, with full capacity of our brain function to not only enjoy every moment consciously, but also be the wise old woman or man as an asset to our family, community and country. I will have a lot to say about this in future articles...
- Jun 29, 2009 - 2:26:25 PM
Is there such a thing? Yes, but it is not called ‘menopause’ because there is no such event as ‘menses’ in a male’s life. A man’s drop in testosterone (the male hormone) is called ‘Andropause’. In my last article I told you a little about the important role of hormones to protect us from disease and support peak performance and wellbeing.
I start with the men today, because the coming weekend we celebrate our men as fathers. When a male has fathered a child, his most important biological purpose has been fulfilled. That does not mean that he then can sit back and be catered to, or go to look for another female to procreate. A father is also the protector and provider for his family. But this is another subject. Let me focus on what most men do not know about their bodies, what actually happens when they get older; their Andropause...
