‘Tid-bits’ of Health
Choice 1: Last week we learned about a couple in their 80’s whose “honeymoon time” is not deteriorating with age. The next day, the wife came in. During our conversation she added, “I love him so much! He is so kind and helpful. It’s not like our ‘honeymoon time’ was bad before he started taking Imunstem & Aktiffvate, but now …” and she briefly described frequency and that it’s “…just really nice.” She said their choices for treating his prostate cancer included chemotherapy which could make her husband less able to perform; radiation which could put a permanent damper on things, or Kemoherb, a natural cancer killer and remover which would not damage his immune system or anything else. “We don’t want to give that up,” she said, “so we chose to do Kemoherb.”
Choice 2: In about a month, it will be three years since my accident. At the beginning of my hospital stay, I could not move my muscles. After going through surgeries and regaining the ability to breathe on my own, I started rehab. First, the therapist would take one of my muscles through its pattern of motion. Then, my ability to move that muscle returned. I learned to sit up again, move my legs and stand. I was amazed at how that happened. Since then, I have returned to dancing and moving quite well, but my balance is still not quite what it was.
Just recently, I started working with a Pilates instructor. A Pilates instructor is highly trained in precise body alignment and muscle function. Yesterday, as I worked on the machines in the Pilates studio, the instructor aligned my ankles before I did the exercise. The adjustment was only a fraction of an inch, but I felt the pressure on the bottom of my foot change from my little toe to my big toe. Later, when I got out of the car and walked to the house, I felt more stability in my body. The choice to do Pilates is one that keeps the body from drifting into that “I’m just getting older” feeling of losing control. And, by the way, Michele is an excellent Pilates instructor.
Choice 3: The choice to do brain surgery versus Kemoherb on the cancer in my brother’s head was not mine to make. Hindsight is always 20-20 vision. He came back into reality for three days, then slipped back into his past. Another brother has stepped in to help the wife and family. The decision to take him through Kemoherb treatments was wrapped in a lack of knowledge about how powerful this natural medicine is and how insurance would cover the out-of-pocket expense. How true it is that our health (or someone else’s) may not always our highest priority. Our health is often taken for granted until it’s lost. Then we realize what we once had.
Choice 4: Other choices gather around the topic of feeding the body. Let’s envision the body being made out of 30 million dollars worth of nutrients; vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, water, oxygen, amino acids, fatty acids, and calories, etc. A full set of nutrients = ultimate health. Some nutrients are coming and going as they support our busy activities (like a checking account). Other nutrients are waiting to be called upon for activity (savings), and others are stored deep in the bones for use in an emergency (retirement). We are designed to be born with a full Body-money Bank Account. As the body functions, nutrients are spent from its “Checking” account. When we eat, we replenish that account with nutrient deposits. Think of each bite of food as a paycheck. When the bite is taken from a ripe, raw, fresh vegetable or fruit, the amount written on the paycheck is larger than if the bite comes out of a box, bag or can. Fewer nutrients the checking account has, the less ability the body has to function fully like waking up, being alert, or having energy. Stimulants are not nutrients. They are loan officers that pull nutrients from the savings and retirement accounts and transfer them into the checking account. A depleted nutrient account leads to Body-money Bankruptcy = ill health. Choose nutrients over stimulants.
