Staying Supple - The Bountiful Pleasures of Stretching,
Breakaway Books, 1998. The only thing any muscle can do
is contract. All stretching is aimed at pulling it back
out to its proper length. Contracting muscles keeps them
alive, stretching them keeps them elastic. Keeps them,
and thus you, supple. Function is maintained by use.
Every hard training day should be alternated with a rest
day. Use the rest day to stretch. Pull out the
sorenesses. Work them but don't stress them. A lot of
hatha yoga is in general use in physical therapy but
isn't called by that name, in order not to scare people
off. Avoid injury (traumatic loading) by doing things
the easy way. "More moves go bad because they're
launched too early than because they're too late. As a
canny old pro once told me, you have to have the
confidence to take the time."
is another factor impacting muscles. The
alkaline minerals calcium,
magnesium and potassium help relax the
muscles, detoxify acidic metabolic waste
products and even calm the nervous system.
Absence of these minerals can cause muscle
spasms and cramps.
Aspartame and other chemicals in
the diet may also be a factor.
Buildup of toxic
chemicals in muscle tissue may cause
inflammation and spasms.
Hyperthermia may be an effective
means to remove this toxic material,
allowing the muscles to relax.
tone is impacted by emotion and vise versa.
This is one reason why calming the mind and
dissolving stress with
meditation can relax the body.

electromagnetic radiation (cell phones,
smart meters, WIFI and other nearby sources
of electromagnetic pollution) can cause
muscles to become tense, particularly in the
neck and shoulders.

Dressed to Kill: The Link Between Breast Cancer and Bras,
Avery Publishing Group, 1995.
Fibrocystic Breast Disease is "Tight Bra Syndrome" -
Sydney Ross Singer, September 27, 1998: "When Soma and
I did our research for Dressed To Kill we were
not aware of how easily women can recover from
fibrocystic breast disease by foregoing the bra. Bras,
by their very design, alter the shape of the breasts for
fashion. To alter breast shape you have to apply
constant pressure on the breast tissue. That is why bras
are elastic garments. This pressure from the bra impedes
the circulation in the breast tissue, specifically, the
circulation of the lymphatic system. This system is
composed of microscopic vessels that originate in the
breast tissue and drain the tissue of fluid, which is
directed through these vessels to the lymph nodes. The
lymphatic vessels are extremely thin and small, and have
no pump, such as the heart, to propel its contents
forward. As a result, lymphatic vessels are easily
constricted by external pressure, such as that applied
to the breast tissue constantly by the brassiere. It is
compression of these lymph vessels that prevents the
proper draining of the breast tissue, leading to fluid
accumulation in the breast. Medically, this is called
lymphedema of the breast, secondary to constriction from
the bra. This fluid accumulation leads to breast
tenderness and pain, and ultimately the fluid develops
into cysts. The cysts over time become hard, and we have
a picture of the creation of fibrocystic breast disease.
Within days or weeks of ending breast constriction by
bras, the breast tissue is allowed to flush out this
excess fluid, cysts disappear, and breast pain and
tenderness are minimal if at all present. From our
research with hundreds of women, getting rid of the bra
has resulted in remarkable recovery of breast health in
over 95% of the cases. Since foregoing the bra for a
month is cost-free and risk-free, and may prove
beneficial, we encourage all women who wear bras to
partake in a self-study to see for themselves, on
themselves, whether their bras have been damaging their
breasts. Keep in mind that breast disease is only a
problem in bra wearing cultures. Women who are
bra-free have the same breast cancer incidence as men.
And don't wait for the cancer detection and treatment
industry to endorse this information before you try it.
Billions of dollars are made each year treating breast
cancer. Nobody will make money by women loosening up to
prevent this disease. The prevention of breast disease
is up to each individual woman. Just stop binding the
breasts with bras in the name of fashion, and begin to
love yourself and respect your body." For more

potassium iodide has been found to help

use cooked potatoes to fatten pigs for market.
They've found that pigs on cooked potatoes
fatten faster and more economically than pigs on
raw potatoes. This evidence shows the great
difference between cooked calories and raw
calories. Indeed, from my work in a sanitarium
many years ago, I've found that it was
impossible to get people fat on raw foods,
regardless of the calorie intake." - Dr.
your body is mostly long-chain fatty acids.
Coconut oil and palm kernel oil are medium chain
fatty acids, and so these fatty acids rarely end
up as body fat. Instead they are burned by the
body for energy. Pacific Islanders eat
tremendous quantities of coconut oil and enjoy
good health. When coconut products are fed to
pigs, the pigs lose weight.

vitamin D levels result in less production and
secretion of the hormone leptin. Leptin was
recently discovered to be one of the primary
hormones involved in fat storage and weight
loss. Millions of dollars are now being spent on
trying to duplicate these effects by
artificially increasing levels of leptin in the
body or turning it into a weight-loss drug. The
simple answer, of course, is to ensure you're
producing and/or receiving adequate amounts of
vitamin D." - Dr. David Williams

If you enjoy
walking, buy a pedometer and try to walk 10,000 steps
per day. The average North American adult walks 3,000 to
5,000 steps per day. A study of an Old Order Amish
community in Ontario, Canada found that the women walk
an average of 14,196 steps each day and the men averaged
18,425 steps a day. Most of these steps were while doing
hard physical labor. Despite healthy appetites, very few
of these people were overweight. (Med Sci Sports
Exers 04;36(1):79-85). Regular walking for about 45
minutes two or three times per week increases the blood
flow to the brain and results in improved learning,
memory, and attention span in older adults. (Proc

To have optimum
weight and stay healthy, consume equal quantities of
omega-3 (flax oil) and omega-6 (olive oil) essential
fatty acids, eat an enzyme rich, nutrient dense diet and
get sufficient exercise so that you burn all the
calories that you eat. A small amount of sugar helps the
food go down. Too much sugar displaces the food and
leaves you with a starving fat body.
One of the causes of the
present epidemic of obesity is high fructose corn syrup (HFCS).
HFCS is cheaper than sugar and is found in manufactured food
products in great quantities. "Unlike table sugar, HFCS doesn't
trigger the release of leptin, the substance that makes you feel
full and stop eating. Worse still, it doesn't suppress the
release of ghrelin, the substance that makes you hungry." - Dr.
David Williams. If you want to control your weight, it is
absolutely necessary to avoid any products that contain high
fructose corn syrup. HFCS is a manufactured product that first
entered the food supply in the 1970's. More than any other food,
HFCS is responsible for the obesity epidemic. High fructose corn
syrup also ruins your liver.
Scientists use MSG to create obese rats to study.
85% of human pain is caused by muscles.
Chronic tension in the muscles can be
painful in its own right, but it has many
consequences due to blockage of the flow of
lymph, pressure on nerves and blood vessels,
and abnormal wear on the joints. Chronic
muscle tension prevents full range of motion
of the joints, distorts posture, interferes
with coordination and weakens the entire
musculature. Chronic tension consumes energy
and nutrients, and generates excessive waste
products. Relaxed muscles will stretch
whereas tense muscles will tear.
The particular insight offered by trigger
point therapy comes from focusing on
individual muscle fibers. Individual muscle
fibers or clumps of fibers can be locked in
tension even when the muscle as a whole is
relaxed and seeming to function normally.
These knots of tense muscle fibers can be as
small as the head of a pin or the size of a
grain of rice or larger. If large enough
they can be felt. Trigger point therapy is a
type of massage designed to release these
knots of tension in the muscles.
