What Is CrossFit?

9 Comments 19 July 2011

Exercise is a critical component to getting healthy and staying healthy.   Everyone knows this.  Moving your body gets your all juices flowing.   Mostly importantly it increases blood and lymphatic circulation, both of which are imperative in the healing process. I exercised a lot in the first few years of my cancer diagnosis. Especially short runs and rebounding. But I didn't do much weight training... And I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I had a local gym membership that I've barely used in the last 10 years. CrossFit got me excited about working out again.

Is Farm-Raised Fish Healthy?

14 Comments 02 October 2010

Perhaps you've heard the dietary health advice "Eat less red meat and more fish". In a perfect world this is good advice, but in the real world there is a very important factor that is often ignored. You should take the same approach to the food you eat as you do to the advice you're given...Consider the source. Farm-raised fish is promoted like it's a good thing. But when you take a closer look, farm-raised fish makes about as much sense as ocean-caught beef.

Sea Salt vs.Table Salt. Does It Really Matter?

9 Comments 12 September 2010

You've probably heard that a diet high in sodium is unhealthy because it is a risk factor for Cardiovascular and Kidney Disease. Processed foods have very high levels of salt, and a diet high in salt actually leads to salt dependence by your body. This is why you crave salty foods; just like a smoker craves the nicotine in a cigarette.

Is Corn Healthy?

7 Comments 03 September 2010

Although most folks think of corn as a vegetable, it's actually a high starch grain. And you may be surprised to know that it has very little health benefit compared to other produce, which is why we don't really eat much of it anymore in our house. King Corn is a independent documentary film about the corn industry in America. Here's are some notes from the film mixed in with my research and comments:

We all know the arguments that being vegetarian is better for your health, the environment, and animals - - but in a carnivorous culture it can be hard to make the change.

Sleep With Me: How Much Do You Really Need?

10 Comments 17 August 2010

We've all heard that most people need 6-8 hours of sleep per night, but you may need much more, like 9-10.  Not getting enough sleep night after night leads to a "sleep deficit" that keeps growing.  And with that sleep deficit comes a gradual degradation of your health. A major key to health is figuring out how much sleep you need, then getting it.

The Fast Lane to Health: How to Detox

11 Comments 12 August 2010

If you're eating the standard modern diet full of processed food and artificial ingredients; you're putting toxins in your body faster than it can eliminate them. These unnatural chemical and mineral compounds are accumulating in all the tissues of your body, and have been for most of your life. Over time these toxins accumulate inside you until there is a tipping point at which your body is so overloaded that essential systems and functions begin to break down. This is why periodic deliberate detoxing is critical.
