Your mind is embodied within your entire being, your whole body, cultivating the many different life processes happening within. From your left pinky toe to your right ear lob.

"Real food is any organic and natural plant or animal that fuels and nourishes the human body with energy and nutrition." Well the first group of foods I'm about to share now are the exact opposite because they are not food, but are marketed to you as being food. You should never and I mean ever intentionally buy, store at home or work, eat or even think about including these fake processed pretend food-like products in your diet and your life.

I mean it's as if you and Mother Nature are intimately connected and ultimately come from the same place. Well I think it's an awesome idea. Anyhoo...

Before we dig in let me make a distinction and explain the difference between what I cal quality restorative sleep (QRS) and long restless sleep (LRS). So QRS is when you go through the usual five stages of sleep, which are stages one, two, three, four, and rapid eye movement (REM) and this is considered one sleep cycle before it goes back to stage one again. Each cycle lasts on average 90 minutes and you should have four to five sleep cycles every night, so

Air is life. Oxygen (O2) is your primary nutrient. You can last a few weeks without food, a few days without water, but you can only last a few minutes without oxygen. When we breathe in we're breathing in life and energy. The O2 we inhale nourishes our lungs, heart, blood, and finally the rest of the body. When we breathe out, when we exhale, we remove waste products from our body such as carbon dioxide (CO2) and even fat! Okay we don't literally breathe out fat, but it has recently been shown that as we burn fat over 80% of the leftover products from fat burning becomes CO2, which we exhale, while the rest of it turns

  • WGP 003: How Stress is Making You Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead

    09/09/2015 Duration: 23min

    In this podcast I'll be exploring Stress: I'll explain what stress is and the different types of stress I'll talk about how stress affects the body Finally, I'll give practical tips on how to reduce stress in your life CLICK HERE TO LEARN WHAT ARE THE BEST FOODS TO GET LEAN Stress is defined as placing pressure or tension on an object. What most people don't realise is that there is such a thing as good stress. This is called eustress, e-u-stress, eustress. The difference between eustress and stress (or distress) is determined by our own perception of the stress. For example imagine two people riding a rollercoaster. One person experiences stress and the other experiences eustress. While one person experiences pain, anxiety, and worry the other person experiences, pleasure, joy, and excitement. Same pressure. Same tension, but different experiences different perceptions of that stress. One has distress (or stress). The other has eustress. My point here is that everything that happens to us is not good or b

Let me read what Professor Google says. The definition of gratitude: "The quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness." Alright so thanks and appreciation, sounds pretty standard. Now I like to give these two quotes of what I think gratitude really means. This is from Melody Beattie: "Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend." And this from Wayne Dyer: "Change the way you look at things and the things you look

  • WGP 001: What is the Difference Between Conventional Mainstream Medicine and Holistic and Functional Health?

    03/09/2015 Duration: 45min

    In this podcast I'll be exploring two healthcare models -- Conventional Mainstream Medicine (CMM -- the main one that's used in western societies today) as well as Holistic and Functional Health (HFH): I'll talk about how each model works and what they are We'll go over the negatives of each as well as the positives Finally I'll talk about which healthcare model you should use for particular health issues CLICK HERE TO LEARN WHAT ARE THE BEST FOODS TO GET LEAN CMM. This includes your standard medical doctor, surgeon, regular dentist and all the specialities in between such as cardiologist, neurologist, oncologist, immunologist, gynaecologist, and all the other specialists and experts that are involved in this model. This model you can really call a disease-care model instead of healthcare and the reason I say that is because it's mainly focused on diagnosing and treating symptoms and diseases. If you go to your doctor with a problem they normally give you something or suggest surgery to remove the problem.
