I believe that your true nature is radiant health. I believe in your body’s innate healing ability; and I believe that you are the only authority regarding your health and your body. This is more than a “belief”, it is a knowing because I have experienced my own body’s healing ability—from chronically ill and exhausted to radiant, and I have witnessed it in others. … More Who is your health hero?
Had I stuck to what doctors, nutritionists, and even health-food experts had said, I would have ended up buried in data, research, statistics, and opinions and I probably never would have gotten healthy; and I definitely wouldn’t have experienced enlightenment. But I didn’t stick to what anyone else said – I cared about one thing and one thing only – finding an equilibrium way of eating and I didn’t care where it came from or what “rules” it broke.
And it broke all the “rules” – shattered them actually, and my own identity in the process; because I discovered equilibrium wasn’t about exercise and restricting fat and pleasure of ANY kind – it was about full-fat everything, eating as much as I cared to eat, and doing whatever made me feel good in my body! And that is the key – getting into your body and out of your head.
Ultimately, the Equilibrium Diet is rooted in the diets of primitive tribes untouched by modern society and modern convenience foods like wheat, sugar and pasteurized dairy; and the diet is also rooted in the natural cycle of the day. As humans we cycle with the sun and moon and before electricity, our night time activity was restricted. So we need more energy, more food and more fuel early in the day and virtually nothing before we go to bed. … More The Roots of the Most Powerful Diet on Earth
A calorie is nothing more than a unit of measure; and yet for many people, this unit of measure monopolizes their lives. So, what does this unit actually measure?
Does it measure the amount of nutrients you receive from a given food?—No. Does it measure the increase in your well-being that you get from eating a certain food?—No. Wait, does it measure the amount of energy the body is given? Absolutely not.
A calorie measures the temperature increase in water that incinerated material creates. And although our stomach can be seen as a metaphorical incinerator, the stomach processes involve acids and enzymes instead of straight fire. And technically, we can compute the calorie output of anything, so long as it is flammable. We could compute the calories of sticks, or leaves, or rope if we so desired. … More Goodbye calories, my old foe
What most people are selling and teaching in this business of spirituality is a transcendent experience, a feeling of Oneness that includes everything, the timeless sensation that by-passes the physical world of our five senses. Clients and consumers have bought products, classes, and retreats all aimed at trying to obtain this experience. The experience is like a bliss-blanket for our nervous systems; it is similar to an addictive drug experience. And so, businesses who actually provide this blissed experience almost ensure repeat customers. But this blissed out experience isn’t what people REALLY want. Yes, a transcendent experience is nice; but it’s just that, an experience that comes and then goes, and leaves us with but a memory. These seekers think they want Oneness. I thought I wanted Oneness. … More The Business of Enlightenment
Nutritional Bankruptcy occurs when the costs of operating the body and digestive processes exceeds the nutrients derived from foods consumed for extended periods of time.
I was an economist surviving through life on sugar, fast food and caffeine in 2010. My husband got really sick and everything changed. I discovered we were both nutritionally bankrupt and that each of us is totally and 100% responsible for our own health.
My husband and I inched our way out of nutritional bankruptcy over the next several years and we learned a TON and realized that health – vitality – is our natural state as living beings. That being said, the #1 way you can reclaim the vitality that is your birthright is through diet. … More Are you Nutritionally Bankrupt? I was…
In 2010, I’d lived with chronic fatigue for over two years, my husband had lived with prostatitis for almost 5 years. I was sleeping 12 hours a night, taking a 2 hour nap during the day and I still never felt rested. It seemed like I woke up just as tired as when I went to bed. After two years, it was beginning to get depressing – I was just SO tired all the time. Back then I was in my early 20’s and they weren’t exactly roaring, if I were a car, I’d probably have been some 1970’s slow-moving clunker.
And I know I wasn’t the only one, I know countless women with “Hashimotos” (thyroid imbalances) suffering the same levels of exhaustion. … More How I Beat Chronic Fatigue Naturally in less than 3 months
When we get healthy, when we decide we are worth the investment of the highest quality lifestyle on the planet, shit changes really fast. I got physically healthy. Over those first six years I detoxed all the candida, Hashimotos Thyroiditis, seasonal allergies and sinus infections, and I eliminated every single health issue I had ever had and felt GREAT while doing it. (Granted there were a few rough patches of detox but in general I had more energy, a stronger immune system, and was way happier than EVER before). I had a very sudden spiritual awakening; I guess you could say I detoxed the atheist too! When you get healthy, it is just the natural state of things, there is no stopping it! And I then had to learn all about surviving and managing the world as an “empath”— and we are all empaths to some extent; some of us are more open to the idea than others but we are ALL empaths. … More What Happens on the World’s Most Efficient Diet?
We were pill-popping, fast food eating standard Americans so when the medical community struggled to diagnose and help either one of us, I started looking for my own answers. This is how economics saved my life and just possibly many others too. I started asking the simple questions I would in any economic situation or potential research question. I asked “Why—why is the world this way?” … More How Economics Saved My Life
