Is It Time For A Detox?

I don't know about you but even with the holidays over, I am still craving sugar.  So, maybe it is time for a detox? Here are some words of wisdom to consider.


A detox is not just about eliminating toxins, it’s also about eliminating unhealthy behaviors. According to  Dr. Jeffrey Morrison, MD, an integrative physician in New York City and author of Cleanse Your Body, Clear Your Mind, sugar is just too addicting and habit forming. The best way to get rid of the cravings is to ditch sugar flat out. And a juice cleanse won’t help you do that.

However, here is a short-term remedy: Three tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in water. “It completely eliminates the craving,” Morrison finds.

Anyone willing to try it and let me know how it works for you?  Just post below and I'll also be writing more about this is another post.

How a Man Born in 1467 Stayed Vibrantly Healthy to Age 98!

Now that we are fully into 2017, I thought this article might be good to ponder on.  After all the indulgences of the holidays, it is perhaps time, once again to cleanse our bodies to be able to live fully in the new year.


By Peter Glickman, Master Cleanse Expert

Dr. Keith Scott-Mumsby, in his book, Diet Wise, talks of a Venetian nobleman, Luigi Cornaro. By the age of 40, Luigi had a nearly continuous fever and thirst and was getting steadily worse. Consulting a physician, he was told in no uncertain terms that it was quantity of rich food he was eating that was causing his ill health and if he continued it would quickly lead him to the grave. (Most people only lived to about 40 at that time and place.)

Vowing to enjoy many more years of life, Luigi began to systematically observe and record what he ate and how it made him feel. After a while, he discovered which foods his body didn’t tolerate well and began to avoid those. In his case, it was fish, pork, melons, fruit, salad, cheap wine and pastry. Further observations and experiments determined that 12 oz. of food and 14 oz. of good wine made him healthy, vibrant and enjoy life.

Later in his life, his relatives persuaded him to eat more to maintain his strength. He increased his intake slightly and was unhappy and in ill humor for a week, then started to get sick with a pain and fever, which lasted five weeks. Realizing it was the change in his diet that began his ill health, Luigi went back to his previous diet and became vibrantly healthy again.

Luigi went on to write and publish pamphlets on diet at ages 86, 91 and 95!

What can we learn of this? Pay attention to what you eat and how you feel afterwards. You need to do this with a food diary because frequently the beneficial or ill effects aren’t immediate.

Since having done the Master Cleanse at least 7 times in my life thus far, I attest that less is more and have always felt better much afterwards.  In our world that is filled with so much fast food these days, we have to be more aware of how food is affecting our bodies.  At times, I have gone in for fast food and lately, seem to be paying the price rather quickly with stomach aches and other symptoms.  When it comes to food, less is better and only if it is a quality food.

The One Percent Difference- A Thinking Game

Do people think less or more these days?  Especially around the holidays.  Some people seem to get happier, some lose it. Could it be they aren’t thinking? 

I happened to come across this book or rather it found me while working at one of the big box stores in Santa Fe.  The covers of the book are dog eared and many sentences are underlined, so I knew it wasn’t supposed to be selling in the book aisle.  The book is called “The ABC’s of Success” by Bob Proctor.  If you have followed him at all, he was in the movie, “The Secret.”  This book is a compilation of his radio show topics starting with Achievement and ending with Worry.  I hope you get a chuckle from this as much as I did.


                                  “The One Percent Difference.” 

Many years ago I was attending a seminar that a good friend of mine, Leland Val Van de Wall, was conducting.  He said something that broke me up; in fact, the entire audience roared with laughter.  He said, “If most people said what they were thinking, they would be speechless.” 

A very wise man.  He was correct as well.


from Clipartion.com

A number of years ago, I had the pleasure of sharing the platform at a convention with the late Dr. Kenneth MacFarland, a great educator from Kentucky.  He said something similar.

Dr. MacFarland said, “Two percent of the people think, three percent think they think, and ninety-five percent would rather die than think.”
I recently read where George Bernard Shaw said, “Most people  think two or three times a year.  I’ve gained an international reputation for myself thinking just two or three times a week.”

You’re probably saying to yourself by now, “Come on Bob, everyone thinks.” Is that right?  Well, let me suggest that you listen closely to most of the conversations going on around you over the next few hours.  It will be obvious that most of those talking are not thinking, or they would never say what they are saying.

Watch the behavior of some of your peers.  You will realize they are not thinking, or they would never do what they are doing.

You could fall into the 3 percent group, which Dr. MacFarland referred to as those who think they think.

With a little effort, you could catapult yourself into the 2 percent group that DOES think.  They are the achievers; the winners in life.

Thinking must be learned, and it is a subject not taught in most schools.  Think about it.  

Hope your holidays are going well and I would love to read your opinion on this topic.

7 Surprising Reasons Every House Should Have A Salt Lamp


Written by Steven Aitchison

You visit your friend’s house and she has a beautiful orangey glowing light in the corner of t he den. It’s like nothing you’ve ever seen before. The light is soft and it illuminates the corner almost in a romantic way. But wait, it’s not an ordinary lamp. This one has magical healing properties. How can that be? Your friend is surprised everyone doesn’t have one of these in their house.

Salt lamps are made of 100% Himalayan salt (or at least your lamp should be) which is said to be a negative ion generator. The health claims range from cleaning the air to curing asthma. Salt lamps are hygroscopic which means they attract and trap all the water molecules in the air that carry toxins.

We always seem to be on the lookout for the least invasive and most natural method to heal any issue that seems to have cropped up. From healing herbs to natural sprays, we will purchase whatever claims to restore us back to 100%. So what are the magical healing properties of a salt lamp?


1. Purify the air.

These beautiful room enhancers are great at cleaning the dirt out of the air. If you’ve burned your dinner or have a smoker in the house, the salt lamp is great for purifying the air. Houses that have unusually high dust activity will benefit from a salt lamp.

2. Reduces electromagnetic radiation.

Cell phones, microwaves, iPad, laptops, TV’s, you name it, we all have one of something. Our houses are full of dirty electricity. A salt lamp may not neutralize all the positive ion activity that is floating around in the air from these gadgets but it will surely help to reduce the dirt.

3. Improves breathing.

For asthma sufferers or any one else suffering from a breathing condition, having a salt lamp in your room at night for sleeping is extremely beneficial. As the lamp cleans and purifies the air, breathing becomes easier and sleeping is more restful. For most sufferers, dirty air plays a big part in breathing difficulty. A salt lamp is the perfect little night light for that.

4. Reduces snoring.

Yes, you read that right. The salt lamp has been said to reduce snoring. Now snoring stems from many different health issues but having and keeping a small salt lamp in the corner of your room at night will make a big difference in that the air isn’t filled with dust and other pollutants which in part do cause some snoring.

5. Increase energy levels.

When we have a lamp glowing continually throughout the day, and as our air gets cleaned, the effect of the negative ions in the air is beneficial to keeping us alert, energized and less stressed. The less stressed we are; the more energy we have.

6. Mood enhancer.

Not only is the beautiful orange glow sure to put you in a much calmer and peaceful state but the release of negative ions and the reduction in dirty electricity leaves us less stressed, happier and not as agitated. They are also really good for lifting the spirits of those who suffer from S.A.D. (Seasonal Affective Disorder).

7. Get a good night sleep.

Because of the reduction of positive ions in the air, of course. Less stress, better air quality, less agitation, calmer moods and all that adds up to a better night’s sleep.
Though it is said that it’s difficult to prove any of these claims, all you have to do is ask anyone who has had a salt lamp in their house for any length of time and they will tell you of the benefits they have experienced since getting one. Some even have more health claims than the ones listed here. As always, do your research, check them out. If any of the claims are false, at the very least you will have a beautiful and unique lamp in your room.
