Why "losing weight" is a HORRIBLE goal. Millions of people engage in the battle of the bulge - trying to "lose weight" that they have gained for a variety of reasons. "Weight loss" centers are everywhere, including Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig and others. Medically supervised "weight loss" programs have expanded to include lap band surgery. And, weight loss is commonly used as part of the title of many books and articles. Yet, the problem has not gotten any better. In fact, it's gotten worse, with 70% of the American population being overweight or obese. What most of us don't realize, is that our brains are wired a particular way. There is a famous true story of a baseball pitcher - it was the bottom of the 9th inning in the 7th game of the World Series. The tying run was on first base, their best hitter was at bat. The manager came up to the mound and said "Whatever you do, do NOT throw low and outside!" Since the manager planted the image of "low and outside" into the pitcher's brain, guess where the pitcher [...]
This pyramid provides a simple and effective way to look at food and get healthier. It combines the teachings of many of the greatest minds in the arena of holistic nutrition and helps us to focus on the most important factors. There are two major categories of foods - Life Promoting vs. Life Depleting. This corresponds with how food interacts with our central nervous system. Food or food substances affect us NEUROLOGICALLY and will trigger either the sympathetic nervous system (fight, flight, freeze, stress, survival) or the parasympathetic nervous system (peace, pleasure, rest, digestion, ease). This is rather dramatic and profound. This concept cuts through all the labels and the rhetoric of so many faddists who just want to make your money. If foods trigger the sympathetic system and we consume too much of them too frequently, then the body has no choice than to begin to exhibit DIS-EASE. And this is the true source of all chronic disease. Conversely, if we consume foods that trigger the parasympathetic system, then the body can HEAL ITSELF since the body is at ease and the immune system [...]
Testimonials from Evolving Health 2-Day Intensive, November 5-6, 2014 Before I participated in this program, my issues included back pain, body pain and tiredness. I have been searching for solutions to these challenges and my friend, Brenda recommended that I try this program. One of the most important things I learned was about how the body truly does work and how to structure a nutrition program that works. I am also planning on adopting a regular exercise schedule. This program provided an entire mind shift with insightful information down to the cellular level. The presentations were excellent. Ruben is knowledgeable and eloquent. The program was perfect! Esperanza Agbayani, Realtor Before participating in this program, I was confronted by excess belly fat, menopause symptoms, low energy and lack of sleep. I was encouraged greatly by Brenda, who I admire and respect. I learned many things in the program, including about the oil slick inside our cells, and the truth about the Standard American Diet. I attained a new hope in being able to change my physiology. I am committed to adopting a new diet, [...]
