Cell Phone Radiation Shield

More research is continually coming out on the negative effects of EMF radiation. A few years ago you were looked at as being crazy if you suggested that it could be a problem, now more people are understanding that it can be a problem and as research improves I think we will understand the extent of it. 
I have used an EMF blocker on my phone for a few years now because I figured that I had nothing to lose. Now there are a few new types on the market, and although I'm not 100% sure they work as they promote, I still think there is nothing to lose. 
I do know that this one recommended by Dr. Libby Darnell converts some level of EMF into light energy which is safe, it claims to reduce EMF by 70%. If you put the phone into airplane mode the light stops flashing and as soon as you turn it back off of airplane mode it flashes again.
Other tips:
-put phone in airplane mode as much as possible
-babies and kids should only use electronics when in airplane mode
-keep electronics, especially cell phones and ipads out of children's rooms
-do not sleep with cell phone right next to head, unless in airplane mode or turned off

Prescriptions Bring More Money

“An exclusive analysis by CNN and researchers at Harvard University found that opioid manufacturers are paying physicians huge sums of money -- and the more opioids a doctor prescribes, the more money he or she makes.
"It smells like doctors being bribed to sell narcotics, and that's very disturbing," said Kolodny, who is also the executive director of Physicians for Responsible Opioid Prescribing.”

The Drugging of the American Boy

This is worth a read:
"By the time they reach high school, nearly 20 percent (1 in 5) of all American boys will be diagnosed with ADHD. Millions of those boys will be prescribed a powerful stimulant to "normalize" them.
A great many of those boys will suffer serious side effects from those drugs. The shocking truth is that many of those diagnoses are wrong, and that most of those boys are being drugged for no good reason—simply for being boys. It's time we recognize this as a crisis"
"In 4 years, sales of ADHD drugs have grown by 89%"
Taking young kids (especially boys) out of a play focused routine and putting them into a structured environment where they have to sit and be quiet is a bad combination. Kids need activity and exercise on a regular basis to function normally.

High Intensity Exercise Delays Parkinson's Progression

High intensity exercise delays Parkinson's progression: 
The more intense the exercise the better the results. Those that exercised at 85% maximum heart rate had no change in disease progression. Those that exercised at 65% maximum heart rate had a 7.5% worsening of symptoms. Those in the no-exercise group which experienced a 15% worsening of symptoms.
Research is also showing that intense exercise is beneficial for many other health problems. Even some cancer treatment centers are starting to recommend it!

Exercise Protects Vital Memory and Learning Functions

When you are stressed the best thing that you can do is exercise. 
Our bodies have a stress response mechanism called "Fight or Flight." 
What this means is that historically when someone got stressed out they would either fight the other person or animal or run away. In our world that seems silly, but every animal has this mechanism. If those stress hormones aren't dealt with by a massive use of energy, they build up and cause damage. 
When you are stressed out a much better idea than fighting someone would be to simply exercise! Not only for your cardiovascular health but for your brain health as well!

Move More to Live Longer

The more you move the longer you live! 
Movement is anti-inflammatory, especially inside joints. Lack of motion increases pain signals inside the joints leading to the feeling of pain. 
Chiropractors get motion back into joints that aren't moving and help to break the inflammatory cycle reducing pain and preventing long term joint problems.

Natural Immune Boosting

Did you know that the gut is considered by many to be a second brain?
The health of your gut dictates the overall health of your body as research has shown that it's the most powerful immune organ.
Also, if your stomach and intestines aren't digesting food properly you are always going to be deficient in nutrients vital for repair no matter how healthy you eat. #immuneboost

Achieve a Healthy Eating Pattern

Health.gov sets dietary guidelines for many nutritional protocols, for the 2015-2020 guidelines here is their breakfast to "achieve a healthy eating pattern." 
There are many issues with this, but just focusing on net carbs (total carbs minus fiber), this is what health.gov recommends: 
[NOT my recommendations] 
1/2 whole wheat bagel  
20.5 grams carbohydrates
2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter  
6 grams of carbs
1 medium bananna
24 grams total carbohydrates
Coffee with 2 teaspoons sugar 
8.4 grams of carbohydrates
Low fat strawberry yogurt 
30 grams carbohydrates
Total carbohydrates: 88.9 grams carbohydrates
90 grams of processed carbohydrates is probably enough for most people for a whole day, let alone breakfast! This is part of the problem why people are getting frustrated or not seeing the results they need.
