Have You Kissed Any Pigs Lately? (Plus a recipe for juice)

The media is once again effectively spreading the “pandemic” fear.

Earlier I had done a post about the importance of vitamin D, and here is a link to one of my favorite blogs, The Heart Scan Blog, where the doctor discusses the link between immunity and Vitamin D.

Here is another link to an article written by Dr. Monica Hughes, PhD in Biology (she knows of what she speaks), about the source of this flu- horrific containment and treatment of our food-production animals. There is a link in her article about the reality of what we do to animals, and you will understand how these super- viruses mutate in these ridiculously toxic and brutal conditions.

When you are healthy, in tune with your own life, your immune system is available. If you smoke, drink alcohol daily, have unneeded anger or hate in your life, or are walking around with long standing grief or sadness, your immune system is distracted and not available to serve you.

For All You Runners…

Here is a great video a sports medicine doctor did showing a side by side comparison of a woman running barefoot vs in shoes. She was given no instruction, just told to run. The point of the video is to show us how shoes create an artificial range of motion in the stride.

In the beginning, look at the freeze frame of the runners thigh. In the left/ barefoot video, notice the lack of total flex in the thigh. In the right/ in shoes video, the thigh is completely flexed, and the IT band (ilieo-tibial band)is rigid. This is why so many runners have tight and painful IT bands, and hip, knee, and low back pain.

Here is another video of the doctor demonstrating effective barefoot running.

The doctor mentions in another area that her runs in Adidas “Adizeno” shoes. There are also neat shoes called “Vibram 5- Fingers”.

There is a course that “retrains” people how to run this way, especially if they have been running for years and are in the habit of “heel striking” called the POSE method.

Well, I am off to experiment on my treadmill now!

What is Your Fitness Type?

This is a fun little quiz, based off the Myers- Briggs Jungian personality typing quiz, that helps determine what type of fitness person you are. I really believe we all know the truth about ourselves, but we so easily become so mired in the muck of other peoples expectations and opinions (or what we egocentrically think are other peoples opinions of us) of us, that we cannot see the forest for the trees.

Have fun! Any other Red Efficiency types out there?
