Bill Manahan, M.D., from the University of Minnesota Medical School said, "I would place Qigong equal in importance to the incredible discoveries in the forties called antibiotics and in the fifties called immunizations."

To your health and wellness!
The sun is shining, the temperature just beautiful! Time to get outside and enjoy the summer weather!
Did you know that just by going for a half hour walk everyday, you can lower your blood pressure, blood sugar, stress, improve muscle circulation and improve your attitude!
Did you know that when you educate yourself on the alternative methods of a health and wellness plan, you can turn those annoying aches and pains around and begin your optimal road to life time health!
Did you know that those so called vitamins that you buy are artifical and contain no working elements that the body recognizes?
Chlorella, spirulina, hemp seeds, chia seed, whole foods supplements that actually work!
My lifetime amibition is to learn, educate and inform on the best alternative methods of health and wellness that I have found over the last 35yrs!
I have a very unique, user friendly, informative site, organic, green living, natural, sustainable news, information, services and products! Something for everyone that is looking to turn their health and their life around forever! Three key things to always remember:
- DRINK plenty of WATER everyday!
(It really does make a huge difference in how your body reacts as we age! All most all the people I personally know that have arthitis, do not drink water!? Something I could never understand, as our bodies are mostly water and require plenty on a daily basis to perform with optimal care. Reducing inflammation is the first way to relieve arthirits pain, so if drinking plenty of water is not in your daily regiment, it should be!
Also, check out a natural way to eliminate inflammation without drugs using "Heal'n'Soothe"
- Eat only those foods that your body can use!
(Eating naturally grown, organic, NON GMO foods, grown close to home is the ultimate way to feed your body, mind and spirit! Give it a try, take a piece of food and hold it close to your body, what is your body saying to you? Yes or No? I have noticed over the years that in the winter months my body requires all those awesome root veggies, but in the summer months it says, eat greens, raw veggies and fresh fruit! Unfortunately, today, we all require more than our food can give us, so adding in the chlorella, chia, hemp foods to those already mentioned above gives us that whole food advantage over those that only use bottled vitamins and minerals the body does not recogize)
See all the great food, recipes
3 - Exercise! Walking daily is my way, along with Qigong!
(Get outside, go for a walk, a run, a swim, do some gardening, whatever turns your fancy! Just get out and do something, you will feel better, physically and mentally!
Now, I know that a lot of people are city dwellers and not as fortunate as myself, to live in the north, or the country, where the air seems much fresher and the sites and sounds of nature abound, making a daily walk a meditative experience. So for those that strive for this type of healthy living but live in a big city where this experience is not as readily available, you must be much more creative, find alternative ways to experience overall health and wellness. Meditating
is an awesome way to release and regenerate your whole being! This can be done in the safety and comfort of your own home where you can let down the protective shield and experience so many benefits! Qigong is my ultimate favorite way to exercise, meditate and rejuvenate my mind, body and spirit all in one place with one product! As I have said already, walking is an awesome way for any age to benefit from and when you live in the city, walking in pairs or groups is advisable not only for safety features but this also allows you to drop the protective shield and experience so much more!)
These are just a few of the key elements that I use and require for my health and wellness!
Educate, implement, inform, and share! Keys to optimal wellness for life! Up next, "The Benefits of Walking"
, my personal experience!
Namaste (Say NO TO GMO)!

Something to educate yourself on and implement into your daily eating habits is the acid/alkaline factor of our bodies and how this very important function attributes to weight gain, unhealthy bodies and can lead to total breakdown of our digestive system and our total health.
If you have taken a basic biology lesson, you will know that cells require certain conditions to function normally, temperature and pH must be precise in order to support our bodies, our life. Our body, though it seems sturdy and above this law, is of no different. It requires basic conditions in order to have optimal performance. When our human body is functioning at its optimal level, human bodily fluids and tissues exist in a slightly alkaline state, not acidic.
The food we eat often becomes the raw material to rebuild its tissue. Our pH balance can quickly become unbalanced if our diet consists largely of "acidifying" foods.
It is amazing how much our daily food habits have changed with the times. Fast food, processed food, GMO foods and more have taken hold on society and blinded it to the long term effects of eating these health killing products.
It comes as no surprise that so many are suffering from different types of allergies, bone diseases, heart problems, obesity etc. Some health experts link these diseases to the type of foods we eat and certain types of foods that disrupt a certain balance in our body that, during such instance, health problems arise. So changing our eating habits and the way we think about food, can aid in the prevention of diseases, help us lose weight and restoration of health is achieved. Cool! I like that way of thinking! You?
The importance of alkaline in our body is needed to maintain a healthy and steady alkaline to acid ratio, which is marked by the pH level of our body. The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14 and anything lower than 7 is considered acidic. Acidosis, abnormally high acidity level in the blood and other tissues of the body, which is most often caused by processed foods, meat, sweets, sugary drinks etc, produce excessive amounts of acidity in the body and is the one thing that several different diseases have in common. Many health experts believe that this is responsible for most of the fatal diseases so many are afflicted with these days, like depression, hyper-acidity, ulcers, skin dryness, acne and obesity are some of those linked to excessive acid levels in the body. Then there are those that are more serious such as joint diseases, osteoporosis, bronchitis, frequent infections and heart diseases. Alkaline, on the other hand, naturally occurs in the body to neutralize excess acidity in the body, which is its main role. However, alkaline also becomes depleted at times, especially when there is too much acid it needs to get rid of and we do not consume foods that replenish our body's alkalinity. Determining whether or not your pH levels are prevalently alkaline, can be done with easy-to-use pH level strips. You can purchase these strips in drug stores or medical supply stores. There are pH level strips meant for testing using your saliva, and there are those for using your urine. A saliva pH level strip will determine how much acid your body is producing, which is normally between 6.5 and 7.5 during the day. The urine pH level strip will tell you how well you excrete excess amounts of acid, which you should get between 6.0 and 6.5 in the morning and between 6.5 and 7.0 at night time. How do you know whether your body is acidic and requires your attention? You would first need to ask yourself whether you experience any of the symptoms:
- Rapid panting breath
- Rapid heartbeat
- Muscular pain
- Pre-menstrual and menstrual cramping
- Pre-menstrual anxiety and depression
- Cold hands and feet
- Light headedness and dizziness
- Exhausted easily and low energy
- Joint pains that travel
- Food allergies
- Excessive gas
- Lack of sex drive
- Heartburn and acid reflux
- Yellow and strong smelling urine
- Headaches and migraines
- Irregular heartbeat
- White coated tongue
- Hard to get up in morning
- Excess head mucous (stuffiness)
If you are experiencing more than 2 of the symptoms listed here, there is a high chance that your body is acidic and you may want to take precaution and educate yourself to reverse any of the problems already created. To help aid in this, you must bring the pH level back to normal. There are alkaline foods that can help replenish the alkaline levels while neutralizing excess amounts of acid and with an alkaline diet you can re-introduce sufficient amounts back into the body, which then brings back the pH level to predominantly alkaline.
An awesome way to start to incorporate an alkaline diet into your eating habits, is to cut down and eventually eliminate processed foods. These foods contain chemicals that increase the acidity of your body once digested.
Also, try to steer clear of meat and meat products, dairy and alcohol and load up on fresh organic fruits and vegetables, as they are naturally high in alkalinity. A note about acidic fruits like oranges and lemons, they become alkaline after they have been digested and absorbed by the body, so keep these in your diet. As a general rule, 75% of your daily food intake should consist of alkalizing foods, as the more alkaline foods we provide our bodies with, the more efficient the neutralization of excess acids will be and the healthier and happier you and your body will be!

How To Live Life With Passion, Love & Soul!
Do you roll through a day and at the end of that day think...what did I really accomplish today? Did I do it with purpose or did I just go through the motions? Why am I here? For what purpose? Is there a big picture?
I am sure that many of us ask ourselves these questions all the time and some look further while others dismiss the thought with thoughts of the days events instead, leaving that nagging question unanswered once again.
One of my favorite sayings in life is: "It does not matter whether you are the Queen of England or a homeless person on the street, we all are equal, we just have different talents and levels of existence" and from that saying I have looked to some of the top leaders in life and spiritual development, taken many courses over the years and come to the conclusion that this is truth! As we are all individuals with different levels of understanding, learning abilities and life lessons to be learned, it is armed with this knowledge that I began my journey years ago and I believe it made it easier to understand that although the different courses/programs available seemed to target the masses, I would take from them what I needed personally and leave the rest. Then as time went by, I found that all the pieces of importance to me that I took, came together as a mass just for me and my individual spiritual advancements. This was all before the internet and information was not as easily available as it is today. I bought books, courses, meditations, healing techniques and began what has come to be "My Life's Purpose"! Although 25 years has gone by and time keeps on ticking here on earth, I still am learning everyday, something new, inspiring or rehashing learned values as new understandings come to light! Since my induction to the internet, I have come across a ton of different health, wellness, learning and healing techniques, courses and services that all offer a valuable product when you know what to take and what to leave. There is no "one" thing out there that can do it all, as we are just to complex for that to be, layers need to be peeled, new growth happen and challenges that bring lessons learned so that the next layer can be peeled and so forth. So I guess what I'm saying to you is, always keep an open mind, take what you need, leave the rest and learn to listen to your inner self, as it is very knowledgeable and will always lead you in the direction you need to be going in. I for one, have always found meditation to be of the up most value to me and always meditated "old style" until I found "Centerpointe Research Institute" and "Holosync"
This was a mediation life change that really took me to new heights in my levels of deep mediation, which just blew my mind and in return my body and soul also!! I started with them about 10yrs ago and although I did try other products out there and found quite a few that are very awesome and I still us for specific purposes such as headache relief or stress relief etc., which you can see on "Energy Healing/Self Help"
, I have always used the holosync program for my over all "daily" meditation. I also enjoy the mediation that I do after a session of "Spring Forest Qigong"
which is a half hour and completes the process just right.
Along with a healthy diet, loads of water, meditations and many different healing techniques which I practice, I include a 1 hour "gratitude walk" with my boy Harley everyday, out in the beautiful nature/woods that surround us and I have to share with you that the benefits of walking everyday, are astounding! I have worked some very physical jobs over the years, but with those jobs came bending, twisting, lifting along with walking/movement, that made me think I was in pretty good shape but when you walk for leisure (or so you think!) your arms are swinging your posture straight and your body relaxed in its motion, your muscles respond in kind, holding your back bones in place better (which has resulted in a lot fewer chiropractic appointments), your leg muscles so much stronger, your lung capacity expands tremendously and your mind clears, just like mediating!
So now that I have shared some of my favorite ways "2 Health & Wellness"
I would like to share some of the programs and courses available that will help you to find your way to your life changing path of spiritual enlightenment and deep life understanding that only you yourself can find!
Be sure to check out all the products offered on "Energy Healing/Self Help"
and below are some of the great courses offered by: "Self Healing Expressions"
which has an outstanding reputation, many valuable life enhancing products and inspiration plus! They have too many for me to list here, but if you click on "Self Healing Expressions"
you will go to their main page where you can see all the different tools available for self help and self healing!
Enjoy and my your path be filled with all that you desire!
Lastly, here's one to give your "Valentine's Day" new meaning!
Well, it is that time of year again, when the onslaught of flu virus's, colds and the major super bugs that science says antibiotics do not work for anymore, start to rear their ugly heads and create epidemic's world wide. The over use of antibiotics over the years has created a shift in which traditional medicine is not working anymore and has allowed these "super bugs" that seem indestructible, to put a huge scare into the average person who has always followed the "doctors" of traditional medicine's advice over the years. The "flu vaccine" that is offered for free, to the public, does not cover all the "flu" bugs out there and is only created for the most dangerous of "super bugs" that is predicated to be the most severe for that coming year. This to me is one of the biggest problems that we face today, as they create these so called "antivirus" shots & hand them out for free to everyone who gets scared into believing that this the only way to stay healthy for the coming winter months.
I think that these man made "antivirus" shots, which are actually the "virus" itself in a dormant state, (so this says to me that) they create the virus & hope that in it's dormant state, will counteract the virus, which is becoming a deadly state of affairs around the globe! I am one who does not believe that this process is the best health plan for protecting ourselves and have always opted out of any "free shots" being made available to the public. There was only one time, when I was a PSW, years ago, that I was forced to take the "TB" tests/shots and the "flu shot" of that year and I have never been so sick in all my life! I would rather have the flu and fight it myself than to ever, ever go through that again! Before that I had never had a "flu shot" and have never had one since! I might also add that I have been allergic to all antibiotics since early childhood and therefore I don't have this immunity to them that most of this world seems to have and believe that the over use of antibiotics has become another scare tactic which creates a panic in the public eye and makes people think that the only alternative is the "flu shot"! This is not true and there are alternatives to the "traditional" ways of protecting our health and wellness through the winter months. I believe that everyone has a right and should exercise the right, to investigate and learn all that you can, yourself, about creating a healthy and well balanced health plan for life that will help you achieve optimal health and wellness through any so called "epidemic"! One of the ways to get healthy and have the abilities naturally to fight any disease or virus, is to stop eating all those cheap processed foods, try to get the best organically grown, close to home, foods that you can, or grow your own and know what your eating! Also, "water" which is the key to so many health benefits (read: my take on water & food
) that needs to be as "fresh" as possible, without chemicals that change the whole make up of water, like "fluoride", "bleach" and so many other harmful chemicals. Plastic bottles are also a big bad health problem in so many ways that I believe they should be banned and plastic should be a forgotten thing of the past. Do you realize that plastic will last longer on this earth than almost anything else here? That is scary!
Buy yourself and those you love the "Stainless Steel Water Bottle (BPA Free)", see below for good deals!
There is quite a selection at "Amazon" that will suit everyone on your list!
This is a gift that keeps on giving in more ways than one! You can check them out here:
My other "stay healthy" ways include taking "Vega Chlorella tablets" daily, (this is the best buy I have found) drinking more than my fair share of fresh water, (usually 4-6 litres/daily, as I have found that the more "good" water you drink, the more your body wants it & utilizes it and it also is a great way to tell if your actually hungry or just thirsty, as most people think when they stomachs growl that they are hungry but most are dehydrated and don't realize it). The book below is an awesome source of information pertaining to "Chlorella" and it's very awesome benefits! I have been taking "Chlorella" for more than 15 years now & do not want to be without it! I have found that once the toxins were out of my system, that I could digest any food, I slept better, woke up better and do not get that "I need a nap" thing in the afternoon! I am presently 51 and have never felt better in my life! I have to admit that I did not start out on my "healthy" path until I was in my mid twenties and would suggest to those who are old enough to understand the benefits of starting as young as possible, do!!
The benefits of "Chlorella" are huge with it being a "whole food" supplement!
An awesome read to educate yourself on:
If you are a "multi-vitamin" kind of person who buys such products from a health food store, you need to educate yourself on the benefits and the dangers off taking individual multiply vitamins and minerals! Uneducated, you may over use vitamins and minerals thinking that your doing yourself good, when in fact you could be creating a major problem down the road. Many man made vitamins and minerals are just that and are not compatible with our bodies, so they are just stored as toxins, unrecognizable to our bodies and help create that dangerous toxic overload that so many people have. Please, always research your interests and gain all the knowledge that you need to make informed decisions about your health and the health of those you love! That is probably the best piece of advice I ever received! One of the best on the market, which is organic and comprised of natural ingredients that our bodies will recognize is "Vega One - All the Essentials - All in One
" which makes for a great breakfast addition!
There is no better time than now to take advantage of the great products available for your health from the awesome people @ Vega! Check out the deals:
As I previously stated, education is priority when dealing with our health and wellness plans for life and to educate yourself on the benefits of eating healthy, organic, natural foods, is top on my list! The book below really helps the average person understand the need for change in our diets and helps explain the why's and how's of healthy eating!
Speaking of foods, they have some of the most delicious healthy foods that your body will just love!
The "Sinfully Delicious
" is just that and "Vega Saviseed
"!! The "Vega - Oil blend
" will become your favorite oil product (next to hemp) and the "Whole Food Energy Bars
" are an awesome snack for anytime of day!
Check out all the details, the benefits and the awesome savings going on right now!
Lastly, for today, I would like to tell you about an awesome product that comes from the great people @ Young Living Essential Oils
" is the top product of the century, that I have used & preached to all who will listen over the years! This essential part of winter, for me anyway, is the bomb when you feel like a virus or cold is trying to attack you! A little "Thieves" goes a very long way in creating a more healthy and stable environment that viruses and colds do not like!! Now a days, it is not only just in "essential oil
" form but you can now get it to clean with, to defuse with, and even get handy wipes! This product rocks and everyone should have it on hand all year long, not just in the winter! Although, a little pricey in comparison to most essential oils, you must remember that "Young's
" produces only 100% grown & graded oils that you can eat! Once again, educate yourself before trying anything new! The unfortunate part of "Young's
" is that unless you become a distributor and buy into a kit, (which I highly suggest doing if you love their oils and want to always have the best for less) but alternatively you can order all their products on Amazon
and still save big!
You can find all the best @ "Great Amazon Finds
" and more specifically @ Jwls Amazon.com
- Essential Oils & Like
which has almost every oil that a person could want or need! Drop by and see all the great oils that can enhance your health, your home and your overall well being!
Now just throw in some "Hemp Hearts
" for omega's & your all set for winter!!
Take it on head first and educate yourself to know what's right for you and your loved ones!
Stay healthy this winter and enjoy all the great benefits of winter! There is so much to do in the snow and the exercise that comes with winter activities is absolutely amazing! Get out there and go for a brisk walk, hit the hills and ski your way to a more healthy you, or cross country your way to a beautiful day!
Whatever your preference, get out & enjoy!
I have also heard and read about "Ocean's Alive Marine Phytoplankton
" but have not tried this myself as of yet! If you do try it, please bookmark this page and come back to tell us all about your experience with this product!
Another great source of "Raw Foods" is "Live Superfoods" that just rock for healthy benefits that taste good!
In conclusion, educate, investigate, change your ways and gain the healthy you, you once knew, back!!

Heal your body as you sleep! Starting Nov 12/12!
Do you meditate? If you answered no, guess again! Every night you go to sleep you engage in the most natural form of meditation your body can experience, says Qigong master and healer Chunyi Lin, creator of Spring Forest Qigong.
"Sleeping is a natural form of meditation and a form of Qigong," he says,
"It's the perfect way to balance yin and yang energy in the body."
Traditional Chinese Medicine says too much yang energy or too much yin energy can cause blockages in the body's energy channels and lead to health problems.
"But 'Qi sleeping' helps to balance your energy. During sleep, the energies of the heart, mind, body, and spirit unite," Chunyi says. "It's so wonderful because you are practicing Qigong while you sleep!"
To help you sleep like a baby—and fine-tune your energy while you do it—consider these tips from Chunyi:
• Exercise daily to detoxify acidic energy in the body. Walking, slow running, weight lifting, Qigong, yoga,
or tai chi can all help you go deeper into sleep so the body can balance more quickly.
• Eat a light meal in the evening, and stop eating two hours before bed.
• Consider eating a small baked potato as part of your evening meal. This calms the energy of the brain and pancreas, helps balance hormone energy, and helps the body relax.
• Don't drink any tea, coffee, or alcohol at least two hours before bed.
• Avoid watching violent movies or TV shows before sleep. "As you sleep, those images are still processing in your brain, in every cell in your body," Chunyi says, "It can prevent you from having a peaceful sleep."
• Before bed, take a hot bath filled with a handful of sea salt, or soak your feet in a basin of hot water with three tablespoons of sea salt.
• Go to sleep and wake up the same time every day to allow your body to align with its natural body clock.
• Sleep on your right or left side or on your back. This helps balance the Qi better.
When sleeping on your side bend your knees, Chunyi says, "and sleep like a shrimp, or like a baby in the womb."
Avoid sleeping on your stomach, which can cause your neck to twist and energy blockages to develop gradually in your body.
• Put a smile on your face as you close your eyes. Smiling causes your brain to send out endorphins that help you feel good.
• Visualize you are sleeping in the cradle of the moon.
• Relax your body from head to toe, breathing slowly, deeply, and gently.
• Focus your attention on your lower dantian, the energy center deep behind the navel. Imagine bright, loving energy there. Send unconditional love energy to your lungs and to any part of your body where you have pain. Allow your body to feel the love.
• Send a message to your body. For example, say to yourself,
"Tonight I will sleep in eight hours of Qigong meditation. Tomorrow when I wake, all my channels are open. All the blockages in my body are gone. I am completely healed, and I feel happy and healthy."
• When you wake in the morning, don't spring out of bed right away. Lie still as you take three deep breaths. Then rub your hands and massage your face. Massage your ears. Then get up and enjoy your day.
"When you sleep well and feel peace in your body," Chunyi says, "every cell has time to rejuvenate.
The next morning you wake up with good energy and are ready to go!"
You can learn many other ways to balance your energy and help your body heal during the Free online
Spring Forest Healingfest starting in 2 DAYS!!
Chunyi Lin will even guide you in gentle exercises and two Sitting Meditations that develop your mental concentration and help clear your body's energy channels to promote healing.
*Dr. Deepak Chopra said, "Like Yoga, Qigong teaches you to balance energy in your body. Master Chunyi Lin has developed an easy-to-follow program that will allow you to incorporate the health benefits of Qigong into your daily life."
*According to Chinese medicine, when your Qi isn't flowing freely, you can get sick, stressed, or emotionally out of kilter. Disease, pain, and negative emotional conditions are symptoms of blocked energy. That's why Chunyi Lin says, "Sickness is nothing to fear."
*Dr. Wang Chong Xing from the Shanghai Institute of Hypertension said in a PBS documentary that after 30 years of study, "We think Qigong can cure every kind of disease, some responding better than others."
*You will have complimentary access to 10 professionally produced audio sessions and two video sessions for six days beginning November 12. You will learn to harness Qi energy, you will see exactly how to practice Qigong, and you will experience powerful and beautiful meditations, all designed to raise your energy and help you heal.
The natural healing process of your body involves unblocking Qi and allowing it to flow to where it is needed. Practicing Spring Forest Qigong can accelerate the body's natural healing process and often result
in a level of healing that some consider miraculous!
*Dr. Bill Manahan from the University of Minnesota Medical School said, "I would place Qigong equal in importance to the incredible discoveries in the forties called antibiotics and in the fifties called immunizations."
