Trump Wrong!

Why You’re Wrong When You Think You’re Right

I publish a health, fitness, and culture blog. These are lifetime passions of mine. Like most people, I have my political opinions, but I try to keep them away from the blog. I want to help everybody who seeks it; and don’t want to alienate people who may not agree with some of my non-related views. But the Coronavirus (COVID-19)… Read the rest

Who Would Be AGAINST A CURE And Why?

This past Saturday, President Trump touted a possible cure for Coronavirus (COVID-19) through a Tweet. It’s a combination of hydroxychloroquine and a commonly used antibiotic, azithromycin. According to the CDC, “Hydroxychloroquine is used for treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus and porphyria cutanea tarda.” It has also been used successfully to fight malaria. A recent well-controlled clinical study conducted… Read the rest
Stop borrowing confidence!

Stop BORROWING Confidence!

In the past, confidence was not my strong suit. Somewhere along the line I lost my mojo. But everyone wants their mojo, so we look for ways to at least feel that we’ve retrieved it. That’s what I did. In my late twenties I read a book you may have heard of called The Art of the Deal, written by… Read the rest

Life Is About LIFE

I ate a whole carton of cookies and cream ice cream this afternoon. Yup—1.5 quarts worth, or put another way, nine servings of eight grams of saturated fat each for a total of 72 grams of saturated fat! Whoah! And I’m a natural health and fitness consultant? Hey—flog me, okay?! What is the point, you may ask? I had a… Read the rest

Stillness for Health

  • by
“…I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts…”—Hebrews 8:10 KJV No moving parts. This is a theme that has run through me for a long time. I’ve always intuitively known that—though physical movement is crucial for human existence—internal movement wears us down mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. So our aim should be to “move or… Read the rest

You Can’t Cure Yourself With Food

  • by
I was listening to my friend Dan Schwarzhoff’s Podcast this morning (What Do Food, Sex, and Your Parents Have in Common?), which I highly recommend. He was speaking of how our resentments trace back to resenting our parents, and how this manifests in all kinds of issues, one of them being eating disorders. Now, this is not a new concept… Read the rest

Sincerity is the Wrong Question

  • by
I was talking with a friend this week about Kanye West, and if his Jesus is King! album and open embrace of Christianity is “real.” My take is that, from what I can see, Kanye is sincere. I’ve seen a number of his interviews, and I really like the innocence I see in him, and the free nature of his… Read the rest

My Podcasts Are Now Available on Apple Podcasts and Google Play Music!

  • by
As you’re likely aware, podcasts are hugely popular these days. I believe there are at least three key reasons for this: #1: Commercial radio has gotten too ridiculous with all of their ads! Enough already! And the customer rebelled. In this day and age, with so many choices for information and entertainment, it’s a huge mistake for any business to… Read the rest

We Don’t Need to “Put God First”

  • by
A friend of mine sent me to a video in which Denzel Washington was giving a commencement speech at Dillard University (2017). The key part to the speech was when he told the gathered students, faculty, and parents how important it is that we “Put God first.” It’s a very good speech, and you should see it. I’m not linking… Read the rest

God’s Power is Transmitted Through a Single Finger

Why is a discussion of God’s power on a health and fitness site? That’s a pretty simple answer: Because God is the originator of life, and therefore health. I have been interested in spiritual health my whole life. I remember being quite young and “praying” to God while lying in my bed, by simply closing my eyes and noticing light… Read the rest
