How to Take the Best Shit of Your Life

There are few things better than taking the perfect shit. After a successful elimination you should feel light, fresh, and invigorated. Just how you deserve to feel.

Going to the bathroom is very important. Most medical professionals say we should eliminate waste 1-3 times a day.

Truth is though when it comes to ‘ dropping a deuce’ most of us are doing a pretty crappy job. We sit on a toilet putting ourselves in an unnatural position. We try to multitask and focus on reading or listening to music. We use dry toilet paper to wipe. We suffer immensely with all types of bowel movement disorders.

Being in the squatting position is how you take the ultimate shit.

shitting

There are no toilets found in nature.

We think we are smarter than animals and the mother creator but we are not.

God or whatever you think designed this place got it right the first time.

A lot of our health problems are very simply to correct. All we have to do is take a look back to nature, see what the animals and original humans did, and copy them.

Even the shoes that we wear on our feet are not natural and are causing us all types of problems.

Our closest ancestors, monkeys, squat down with their knees drawn up to their chests when it’s time to go.

Original man squatted as well.

In fact, 2/3 of the entire human population to this day don’t use a sit-down toilet when it’s time to take a number two.

Does a bear shit in the woods? Yes, it does.

If he shits in the woods and no one is there to see it did it really even happen? That’s pretty deep, I’m going to save that for a future post.

Let’s get back on track.

Urban Dictionary  nature calls

It is only in the industrialized West, where we think we are better than everyone else, that people sit down to defecate just as they sit down to eat.

It’s no surprise that so many of us suffer from chronic constipation, hemorrhoids, irritable bowel syndrome and many other problems caused by trying to evacuate the bowels of toxic waste while being stuck in the sitting position.

While the sit down toilet does save your legs from the effort it takes to be in the squat position, it doesn’t save your bowels. It actually puts a strain on your organs and puts you in a position that makes it much more difficult on your body.

When sitting on a toilet, the lower end of your colon is bent. To correct this your body requires a major muscular effort to eliminate.

This effort or strain, can cause the tiny capillaries that feed the anal sphincter to burst causing hemorrhoids.

When squatting, the colon aligns itself naturally with the rectum and anus, which then can open completely and effortlessly.

sitting vs squatting

I took that image above from naturesplatform.com. If you want to learn more about why squatting is superior to sitting go to that site. They have covered pretty much everything there is to say and list many studies and resources proving that squatting is better and that sitting can cause people a lot of health problems.

Benefits of squatting

  • You eliminate more waste.
  • You eliminate faster and easier.
  • You exercise your legs.
  • You protects the nerves that control the prostate, bladder and uterus from becoming stretched and damaged.
  • Prevention and cure of hemorrhoids.
  • Prevention of colon cancer.

Let’s talk about wiping.

When squatting your cheeks go into a full spread. That’s because being in the squat position allows more feces to exit the colon. It leaves less of a mess than sitting so you’ll save more money on toilet paper. Saving money is good.

Toilet paper is a stupid invention anyway. I hate toilet paper.

When you get your hands dirty do you take tissue paper and rub it around your hands til the dirt is gone?

No, you don’t do that. So why do we use this method on our precious assholes?

Get some baby wipes or a warm wet paper towel and clean your asshole the right way.

I’m talking to you shitty asshole guy.

Use water my friend.

We suffer immensely with all types of bowel movement disorders.

Here are some of the negative disorders that can occur from sitting instead of squatting :

  • Appendicitis
  • Bladder Incontinence
  • Colitis and Crohn’s Disease
  • Colon Cancer
  • Constipation (One cure can be found here)
  • Contamination of the Small Intestine
  • Diverticulosis
  • Gynecological Disorders
  • Endometriosis
  • Hysterectomy
  • Pelvic Organ Prolapse
  • Rectocele
  • Uterine Fibroids
  • Heart Attacks
  • Hemorrhoids
  • Hiatus Hernia and GERD
  • Pregnancy and Childbirth Issues
  • Prostate Disorders
  • Sexual Dysfunction

If you had the very simple choice of correcting even one of those ailments by squatting rather than sitting, don’t you think you should give it a try? What do you really have to lose?

How you can start squatting.

You have a few options. First, you can just squat on a sit-down toilet. Second, you can buy the Squatty Potty or Natures Platform. Third, you can build your own platform.

First, squatting on a sit-down toilet. All you have to do is raise the seat and stand up on the rim, then squat down slowly until your knees are pressed against your chest. If you’re doing this barefoot, squat on the seat instead of the rim.

A sink, handle or something sturdy near by can serve you as an armrest to help with your balance. Handicap stalls provide a very nice safety bar.

Pro Tip: Put some toilet paper in the bowl before doing this to avoid the ever so dreaded “splash effect”.

Second, buying the Squatty Potty. If you’re going this route you should grab the 9 inch one. This is because you want your knees as close to your chest as possible.

The Squatty Potty is Doctor recommended and endorsed. It’s strong and durable, family-friendly, and will give you easier and faster bathroom visits. It complements and stores under any toilet and has over 1,000 reviews on Amazon.

Even Howard Stern uses it:

“I had…like…a full elimination. It was unbelievable. I felt empty. I was like, ‘Holy Shit!”

They offer one in white plastic, sculpted plywood and even a very nice looking adjustable bamboo one :

bamboo-squatty

Third, if you’re a handy man or woman you can build a simple wooden frame to be placed around your toilet. Do it yourself.

Closing Thoughts

If you follow nature and the simple suggestion of squatting you will greatly reduce your risk of suffering from bowel movement disorders. For a clean, unobstructed colon is one of the most important prerequisites on the road to good health and long life.

As the alchemist and legendary Taoist Ho Kung wrote:

“Those who aspire to longevity
must keep their bowels clean;
those who wish to delay death
must keep their bowels unobstructed”

Check out the Squatty Potty episode on Shark Tank. It’s hilarious:

25 Reasons All Drugs should be Legal

I recently read a book called “Chasing The Scream: The First and Last Days of the War on Drugs”. I was immediately struck with anger, sadness and disbelief.  25 reasons drugs should be legal and my thoughts are underneath.

1. Harry Anslinger was RACIST.

This guy is probably responsible for more deaths than Hitler and very few people even know who he is. He was a United States government official who served as the first commissioner of the U.S. Treasury Department’s Federal Bureau of Narcotics. He started the war on drugs. Before he came along all drugs were legal and people were doing pretty well. He was an inflexible supporter of prohibition and the criminalization of drugs and many of his policies and regulations are still in place today.

To get a feel for how he got down, just check out some of his quotes:

“Refer makes darkies think they’re as good as white men…the primary reason to outlaw marijuana is its effect on the degenerate races.”

“…most are Negroes, Hispanics, Filipinos, and entertainers. Their Satanic music, jazz and swing, result from marijuana use. This marijuana causes white women to seek sexual relations with Negroes, entertainers and any others.”

Yeah, that’s the guy who is responsible for making all drugs illegal. He’s the guy whose law and regulations still hold weight today. His archaic way of thinking has no place in our modern day society. Especially if we want true ‘equality’. Why are we still following rules put in place by a racist bigot whose main motive in making all drugs illegal was to keep certain groups of people at the bottom?

2. Less people would overdose.

100 Americans die of overdose each day. This number doesn’t have to be so high. Many people don’t even realize that overdose is the leading cause of accidental death in the U.S at around 38,000 people a year.

Let me break this down for you real quick.

If you had a loved one who was doing drugs and you couldn’t stop them no matter what, would you rather have them taking drugs of a known strength and purity or have them play a guessing game of how strong and pure their drugs are?

Would you rather them take drugs produced in accordance with strict medial standards or drugs that were cut with dangerous adulterants produced by organized criminals?

You can’t stop the people from doing drugs. You can only hope to contain them.

3. Less people would go to jail.

Pretty simple. When all drugs are legal no one gets arrested for selling or possessing them anymore.

From New York to California the jailed and torture of addicts is routine. To pick one kind of torture: The Justice department estimates that 216,000 people are raped in these prisons every year. This is the number of rape victims not actual rapes — that number is far higher.

As the writer Christopher Glazek has pointed out, this means the United States is the first society in human history where more men have been raped than women. Don’t tell a feminist that though.

4. Drugs would be held to a higher standard and produced at a better quality.

Supply and demand. The good stuff would reign supreme. Less worry about the come down and more focus on the come up.

This would also decrease the number of accidental overdoses and save human lives. That’s what we want people. To save humans.

5. Performance enhancing drugs like steroids and HGH would make humans better.

More strength.

More endurance.

Better focus and drive.

I’m all for self enhancement. Do whatever it takes to be the best.

If people want an advantage give them one. This would result in bigger accomplishments and getting more work done.

Less people would suffer the negative side effects that come along with taking PEDs because they would now feel safe opening up to their doctors about taking them.

In turn they could be professionally monitored and reduce the risk of inflicting damage upon themselves when all they ever wanted in the first place was to be a better human.

6. The Mexican cartel would lose power.

No one kills more people than the mexican cartels. 60,000 killed in the last 5 years.

That doesn’t need to happen. When all drugs become legal majority of the illegal activity surrounding them vanish.

Why are the Mexican cartels so powerful? Oh yeah, because drugs are illegal.

This isn’t rocket science.

7. People wouldn’t have to drive out of their neighborhood to ‘shady’ parts of town to score drugs.

I know of someone who died in Paterson, New Jersey trying to score heroin. Most people would call that person an idiot, and they might be right, but when an addict needs a fix they will do a lot of dumb stuff to get it.

When all drugs become legal obtaining them will no longer turn into an adventure that can lead to death or jail. You will go to the pharmacy where it’s safe. Where the customer is always right.

8. People would be less addicted.

crackiswak

Let me be clear. This is not a PSA for drugs.

Taking drugs and drinking everyday is not a smart idea. I do not do that.

In fact as I write this I haven’t taken a drug or had a sip of alcohol in over two months.

It’s not what winners do and it’s a one way ticket to losing.

Let’s be honest though, if Crack was legal would you start smoking it?

No, you probably wouldn’t. Crack would still be wack.

That mural shown above by Keith Haring still stands and it stands for good reason.

9. Families wouldn’t fall apart.

Our family structure is falling apart. Dads are ripped away from their families and thrown in prison. Moms are having their kids killed and taken away because of marijuana.

It’s ridiculous.  It needs to stop.

There’s no need for the utter lack of common sense. There’s no need for the inhumane treatment.

10. Babies wouldn’t be born addicted to drugs.

If drugs were legal clinics that distributed them would not supply pregnant women with drugs like street dealers do.

I don’t know if you knew this but street dealers are ruthless.

Like most people who only care about a dollar, they will do anything to make that money.

That includes selling to a pregnant woman.

I understand why though.

When you make drugs illegal and leave it up to the streets to conduct business a set of certain rules get put into place.

Street rules. Laws you have to follow to survive on your block.

You can’t ever look soft or lose a customer to the next man. If you do it means loss of your corner and even death.

That’s just the way it is.

11. Addicts wouldn’t rob, steal and kill to get high.

They wouldn’t have to rob anyone.

Home invasions aren’t happening because people want cigarettes and beer. (Those things are legal)

Home invasions are happening over drugs and drug money.

12. The number of prostitutes would be cut in half over night.

Don’t know if you knew this but majority of women sell sex to feed their addiction.

That’s fucked up.

When all drugs are legal people don’t need to sacrifice their bodies just to get high.

The aftermath would leave true sex professionals that were cleaner and healthier.

Sex should never be forced. It should happen naturally.

Sex heals. Sex is good.

Sex on drugs can be even better.

All the people want is to just be better.

13. Animals take drugs.

Like the true taoist sages, we can learn a lot from nature. From eating habits to exercise to how to avoid natural disasters.

The fact that animals purposely get intoxicated means we can too.

Check out the book “Intoxication” by Ronald K Siegel. Here’s a really cool passage from it:

“After sampling the numbing nectar of certain orchids, bees drop to the ground in a temporary stupor, then weave back for more. Birds gorge themselves on inebriating berries, then fly with reckless abandon. Cats eagerly sniff aromatic “pleasure” plants, then play with imaginary objects. Cows that browse special range weeds will twitch, shake and stumble back to the plants for more. Elephants purposely get drunk off fermented fruits. Snacks of “magic mushrooms” cause monkeys to sit with their heads in their hands in a posture reminiscent of Rodin’s Thinker. The pursuit of intoxication by animals seems as purposeless as it is passionate. Many animals engage these plants, or their manufactured allies, despite the danger of toxic or poisonous effects.”

14. Less people would be shot and killed by the police. 

Cops would treat random stops a lot different.

Instead of police seeing citizens as the enemy they would start seeing them as fellow citizens.

Instead of citizens seeing cops as evil, they would start seeing them as keepers of the peace.

Isn’t this what the police are supposed to be in the first place?

Even cops are starting to realize what a failure the war on drugs is. Ever hear of the organization called LEAP? It stands for Law Enforcement Against Prohibition. They get it. They have A LOT of good information and articles on their website. Which can be found at www.leap.cc.

15. Less police would be shot and killed by criminals.

Go back to reason 14.

16. Drugs would be cheaper.

From “Chasing The Scream” by Johann Hari:

“Before it became a crime to sell drugs, he had many patients who used them -but things had been very different then. They had bought their opiates, including morphine and heroin, at a low price from their local pharmacist. They were sold in bottles as “remedies” or little helpers,” for everything from a chest infection to the blues. One of the most popular was called “Mrs. Winslow’s Soothing Syrup,” of which each ounce you bought contained 65 milligrams of pure morphine. The vast majority of people who bought them, he recalled, used them without a problem. Most people, even addicts, used them in low doses.”

17. Our streets and our homes would be safer.

Nobody is breaking into houses for cigarette money.

When all drugs are legal street crime decreases significantly.

No more taking the long way home from school.

18. Turf wars would be a thing of the past.

Rite aid employees aren’t serving up buck 50s to the cashiers at the Walgreens.

19. We could stop pretending to invade countries like Afghanistan because of “terrorists”.

They would just tell us straight up, “Yo we over here for the opiates fam, they got the purest in the game.”

Is it a coincidence that ever since we’ve invaded Afghanistan we all of the sudden have a huge opiate problem?

FYI weed was invented in Afghanistan. By God.

20. Nobody has ever overdosed from Marijuana.

“Tetrahydrocannabinol is a very safe drug. Laboratory animals (rats, mice, dogs, monkeys) can tolerate doses of up to 1,000 mg/kg. This would be equivalent to a 70 kg person swallowing 70 grams of the drug—about 5,000 times more than is required to produce a high. Despite the widespread illicit use of cannabis there are very few if any instances of people dying from an overdose. ” – See more at: drugwarfacts.org

21. Rehab would be a cool place to go and would have much deeper resources for mind body and spirit.

Addiction isn’t a disease. It isn’t something you are stuck with for life.

It can be unlearned like all habits. It’s time to stop treating addicts like lepers.

Every life has genuine value. Every life is something to be treasured.

Like most of us, addicts need to learn self love. To truly embody it and feel it.

When you love yourself you don’t punish yourself.

You start to build on yourself and only take part in habits that benefit you.

Rehabs need to teach this more instead of labeling someone with a ‘disease’ for life. That’s bad programming.

The 12 step program barely has a 50% success rate. Time to wake up and open our eyes to what really works and what doesn’t.

22. CASES OF HIV AND HEPATITIS C WOULD DECREASE

“What’s more, prohibition creates health risks that wouldn’t exist in a legal market. Because prohibition raises heroin prices, users have a greater incentive to inject because this offers a bigger bang for the buck. Plus, prohibition generates restrictions on the sale of clean needles (because this might “send the wrong message”). Many users therefore share contaminated needles, which transmit HIV, Hepatitis C, and other blood-borne diseases. In 2010, 8 percent of new HIV cases in the United States were attributed to IV drug use.”

23. The U.S. Economy would improve their budget by at least 85 billion dollars.

It costs a lot of money to enforce prohibition.

Combined that with the lost revenue we would collect on taxes and boom, that’s a lot of paper.

Last time I checked, we could use the money.

24. People actually use drugs less often when they are legal.

Source: www.tdpf.org.uk

Source: www.tdpf.org.uk

Because telling people not to do something just makes them want to do it that much more.

25. Billie Holiday would have lived longer.

Bille Holiday was born in 1915, a few months after the Harrison Act. The first law banning cocaine and heroin. Her mom was a prostitute and her dad died of pneumonia in the South because he couldn’t find a hospital that would treat a black man. She was then forced to move to Baltimore to live with her grandmother, in a place called Pigtown. It was called that because it was one of the last places in America to get a working sewer system. So piles of shit used to burn all day and night next to the shacks they lived in.

Through all that she somehow went on to become one of the most legendary singers in American History. Until Harry Anslinger got to her.

Check out this article about how Harry Anslinger made it his mission to destroy Billie Holiday’s life. He somehow thought that if he could take out Billie Holiday he could stop everyone from doing drugs. In the process he sent her to jail numerous times and eventually was the cause of her death.

Why You Have Unintentional Chronic Dehydration and How To Cure It

salt

SALT IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT NATURAL COMPOUNDS KNOWN TO MAN. IT IS ESSENTIAL FOR LIFE. 

So why are doctors coming out left and right talking about how bad salt is for you? That’s because those doctors are talking about table salt. The bleached and man made white kind of salt that’s over heated and stripped of all its trace minerals. Cool, thanks for the tip Doc… but what about Real Salt?

I have noticed improvements to my overall health and well being since supplementing with Real Salt.

The way I supplement is easy. I just add 3/4 teaspoon of Real Salt to 1 quart of  filtered drinking water 3 times a day.

I first read about this recipe in a great book that I highly recommend called Your Body’s Many Cries for Water by Dr. Batmanghelidj.

THERE ARE MANY GREAT BENEFITS TO DRINKING WATER WITH REAL SALT.

Real Salt has some really good benefits:

  • Hydrates your cells.
  • Prevent and eliminate muscle cramps.
  • Required for blood, sweat, digestive juices and efficient nerve transmission.
  • Improves brain function.
  • Makes you a stronger human.
  • Kills pathogens such as bad bacteria and parasites.

REAL SALT HYDRATES YOUR CELLS

If you are thirsty, it means your cells are already dehydrated.

The feeling of thirst doesn’t even develop until body fluids are depleted well bellow levels required for optimal functioning.

Here are some signs that you are dehydrated.

If you have dry mouth…

Chapped lips…

Dry Skin…

Decreased coordination…

Fatigue…

Yellow urine. A hydrated body produces clear and colorless urine.

Dry mucous membranes in the mouth and nose…

Blood pressure changes…

Impairment of judgment…

Stress..

Headache…

Back pain…

Allergies…

Asthma…

And many other degenerative health problems are the result of UCD or (Unintentional Chronic Dehydration).

Also, if you’re drinking 1-3 cups of coffee a day.

Tea, coffee and soft drinks do contain water, but the diuretics contained in these beverages flush water out of your body.

Don’t count on them to replenish fluid loss.

Always ❤️ the opportunity to spend time down in our salt mine 😃 #americaspinksalt

REAL SALT IMPROVES BRAIN FUNCTION

Sodium is an vital element in the development of brain and improvement of brain functions. Deficient sodium levels in body can affect the brain leading to lethargy, confusion and dizziness. This probably explains why I no longer suffer from bouts of ‘staring into space’ and now have an absolute laser like focus.

SALT CAN PREVENT AND ELIMINATE MUSCLE CRAMPS

When you’re sick and dehydrated and you go to the hospital what’s the first thing they give you? SALINE SOLUTION. What is Saline Solution? You guessed it, salt water. Muscle cramps are largely caused due to electrolyte imbalance & dehydration and are quite common in the summer months. Sodium is responsible for muscle contraction and hydration. Sodium rich juices and fluids help to restore the amount of electrolyte. It’s a shame that so many people are scared of it. What’s even worse is that most doctors tell you to avoid it. Probably the same reason no one uses the compliments “salt of the earth” and “worth one’s salt” anymore. To be ‘worth one’s salt’ actually means to be worth one’s pay. Our word salary derives from the Latin salarium, (sal is the Latin word for salt) and in ancient times some people even got paid in salt. Wars have been fought over salt. “But Thor I drink Gatorade that has all the electrolytes I need.” Gatorade is crap filled with sugar and coloring. Cut out the middle man. Cut out the crap. Do it yourself. Just put 3/4 teaspoon of Real Salt in a quart of water and drink it.

REAL SALT IS REQUIRED FOR BLOOD, SWEAT, DIGESTIVE JUICES AND EFFICIENT NERVE TRANSMISSION.

Salt is a vital ingredient in having good health. In fact, no electrolyte is more essential to human survival than salt.

The sodium you get from salt is what allows nerves to send and receive electrical impulses. It is what makes your muscles stay strong. It’s what makes your brain work. It’s actually what makes every cell in your body function.

Drinking salt water gave me strength. I shattered all my personal records and became stronger in every single lift and exercise I did.

REAL SALT IS ANTIBACTERIAL

“Go gargle your mouth out with warm salt water!”

Who was ever told that by their mom or dad when dealing with a sore throat? I know I was. Little did any of us know there was a very good reason for that. That’s because salt water is a highly effective antibiotic. Apart from organisms evolved to live in salty water, it is highly lethal to a large variety of common microbes.

This means it can kill bad bacteria and parasites that are now robbing many people of their health and vitality.

If you live in a populated city.

If you eat out at restaurants.

If you travel a lot.

Chances are your body is being overwhelmed by pathogens like bad bacteria and parasites.

Kill those bastards before they kill you.

Drink water enriched with REAL SALT.

PEOPLE ARE USING REAL SALT TO CURE LYME DISEASE

Pretty crazy right? Didn’t believe me that salt is antibacterial?

Check out lymephotos.com to get a real glimpse of that in action.

Read this quote from their website:

Our theory is that due to the decreased consumption of salt in our daily diets, we have allowed the invasion of parasites into our bodies and those of our pets and livestock. Over the centuries, man has traditionally consumed approximately 20 grams of salt daily. The only time, other than current day, that man’s consumption has drastically decreased was during the Medieval Ages, when the landlords deprived the poor of salt, and the Black Death ravaged the population. Salt is an ancient bactericide, and killer of many of man’s pathogens. For centuries, twenty grams of salt daily was the average intake due to the way meats were cured and foods were preserved. Man certainly lived a more outdoorsman’s lifestyle, yet there was no mysterious illness. Was it the presence of sodium chloride in his body that prevented Lyme from occurring? Lyme was first documented in the 1970’s. It is around the same time we were inundated with the “No Salt Diet” craze. For years Japan had no cases of Lyme disease, and only recently with the new low salt soy sauce have cases been documented. As far as our animals go, cows were always given large blocks of salt licks, which were pure sodium chloride. The old ways protected our livestock from many pathogens that are coming into focus in today’s society. Just recently, these blocks have become mineralized salt licks with minerals, medicines, and vitamins, that manufacturers claim is what our livestock need. They actually need the sodium chloride. This may explain the recent appearance of new illnesses such as Lyme, Mad Cow, and other parasitic illnesses among our livestock. They crave the sodium chloride. It is a natural instinct. Just the same way that a hunter knows that if he puts out a block of salt, the deer will come. Bear reportedly tear the bark off fallen trees to lick salt. There are salt caves in Africa that draw herds of elephants at night, and the mothers break off chucks of salt and fed it to their young. Maybe it is time we take a lesson from the animals. Eat more salt!

HOW DO I KNOW HOW MUCH WATER TO DRINK?

This is very important.

Drinking too much water can be just as bad as drinking not enough.

To know how much water you have to drink you cut your body weight in half and drink that amount in ounces.

So I weigh 220 pounds of mostly muscle. I drink 110 ounces of water a day.

If you weigh 300 pounds drink 150 ounces of water a day.

If you weight 150 pounds drink 75 ounces of water a day.

Just remember to add a 3/4 teaspoon of Real Salt to each quart you consume for optimum hydration.

You will be making yourself a better human.

How To Save Over $500 A Year By Never Buying A Plastic Water Bottle Again

filter

 

I bought this New Wave Enviro 10 Stage Water Filter on July 4th, 2015 and I am very pleased with it. It saves me money. It’s convenient. It was easy to install. It tastes great and eliminates contaminants.

IT SAVED ME MONEY

I made a resolution to stop spending money on plastic water bottles. Which I was spending around $300-$600 a year on at least. Now I never have to stop at the store to use my hard earned cash buying water in cheap plastic bottles.

IT’S CONVENIENT

Instead of having to worry about going out of my way to buy water bottles I just use my New Wave Enviro 10 Stage Water Filter to fill up my 32 ounce mason jar or my Nalgene Tritan 1 quart Narrow mouth BPA free water bottle before leaving the house. Now it’s very easy to drink my required 3 quarts of water per day.

IMG_3697

That’s my mason jar

IT WAS EASY TO INSTALL

All I had to do was attach it to my faucet and it was up and running within a minute. I was hesitant in getting a filter for a long time because I didn’t want to install a unit under my sink and always have to worry about going down there to replace the filters. That takes time and money because chances are you have to hire someone like a plumber to make sure everything gets put in the right way. This was so easy to install. There will be no hiring of anyone. It is also very easy to uninstall which means you can travel with it. A big advantage when leaving the country or going on vacation.

IMG_3752 (1)

There it is, just sitting on my kitchen sink looking all pretty.

IT TASTES GREAT AND ELIMINATES CONTAMINANTS 

“The Ten Stage Premium Water Filter System produces a continuous supply of clean filtered water and removes major contaminants to below EPA minimum levels. The Ten Stage Premium Filter removes or greatly reduces the following: Chlorine, Cancer causing organic/chlorine compounds called Trihalomethanes (THM), bad odors, e.g., Hydrogen Sulfide which gives water a rotten egg smell, Pesticides, Herbicides, PCB’s, Toxic Heavy Metals i.e., Lead, Cadmium, Organic Arsenic, Asbestos, Micro-organisms (protozoa and cysts) such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia, and dozens of other lesser known organic contaminants.”

You can then go in and add a quarter tea spoon of Redmonds Real Salt to your freshly filtered quart of water ensuring you receive optimum hydration, trace minerals and essential electrolytes.

In conclusion, after buying this filter my drinking water tastes great, I’m more healthy because I’m hydrated and am saving a lot of money.

*They also have a very nice Guarantee and Warranty which include a 30-day unconditional money-back guarantee, as well as a limited one-year manufacturer’s warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.*

You can buy it here on Amazon for only $70.

How To Relieve Your Back Pain By Wearing Minimalist Footwear

borntorun

“Full of incredible characters, amazing athletic achievements, cutting-edge science, and, most of all, pure inspiration, Born to Run is an epic adventure that began with one simple question: Why does my foot hurt? In search of an answer, Christopher McDougall sets off to find a tribe of the world’s greatest distance runners and learn their secrets, and in the process shows us that everything we thought we knew about running is wrong.

Isolated by the most savage terrain in North America, the reclusive Tarahumara Indians of Mexico’s deadly Copper Canyons are custodians of a lost art. For centuries they have practiced techniques that allow them to run hundreds of miles without rest and chase down anything from a deer to an Olympic marathoner while enjoying every mile of it. Their superhuman talent is matched by uncanny health and serenity, leaving the Tarahumara immune to the diseases and strife that plague modern existence. With the help of Caballo Blanco, a mysterious loner who lives among the tribe, the author was able not only to uncover the secrets of the Tarahumara but also to find his own inner ultra-athlete, as he trained for the challenge of a lifetime: a fifty-mile race through the heart of Tarahumara country pitting the tribe against an odd band of Americans, including a star ultramarathoner, a beautiful young surfer, and a barefoot wonder.” –Born To Run by Christopher McDougall

Humans have been bare foot running for 200,000 years.

Somewhere along the way it become uncool. That’s weird. Good marketing. Bad programming.

Little known face, high heel shoes actually were first invented for short men with insecurity issues.

Why do we keep going against nature?

Humans were designed to walk barefoot and you don’t even have to be a runner to wear these. You just have to be human.

When I Wear Minimalist Footwear I feel great.

I’m actually addicted to the barefoot type of sneaker and it’s hard for me to go back and wear regular pairs now.

I’ve heard the same thing from people who get addicted to wearing Vans, another zero drop type of sneaker.

I own a few different pairs from different companies but I like the company VIVO a lot.

They even have casual options for those with a sense of style .

Footwear with an elevated sole can be bad for you. (link)

Footwear with a heel can be really bad for you. (link)

Don’t do things that might be bad for you.

Wear minimalist footwear. Because when you do, every step you take feels like a mini ground massage. Reflexology at its finest.

Your feet will thank you. The neglected and under worked muscles in your ankles and calves will thank you. God will thank you.

Wearing barefoot sneakers makes you a stronger human.

Your posture will be better.

Your performance will be better.

Making a switch to minimalist footwear can even help with knee and back pain.

It’s also a great way to rehab from an ankle injury because it can build up those weak muscles to prevent more injuries in the future.

They’re also great for lifting weights. All the best weight lifters wear minimalist footwear.

Even Arnold.

They are so light and easy that it’s hard for me to put on a pair of work boots after I get accustomed to the feel. They’re actually very addicting.

When you wear these you’re affecting your alignment for the better. Don’t over complicate what you put on your feet. Wear Minimalist footwear.

Buy a pair of minimalists on Amazon.

Because Barefooters do it better.

How To Beat Inflammation Using Turmeric

What is a Spice?

Let me grab a quote from the Wikipedia Spice page:

A spice is a dried seed, fruit, root, bark, or vegetable substance primarily used for flavoring, coloring or preserving food.

Spices are distinguished from herbs, which are parts of leafy green plants used for flavoring or as a garnish.

Many spices have antimicrobial properties. This may explain why spices are more commonly used in warmer climates, which have more infectious disease, and why the use of spices is prominent in meat, which is particularly susceptible to spoiling.

When I eat Turmeric my brain tingles.

Turmeric_BNC

Curcumin, the main ingredient in the spice turmeric, is currently the subject of intense scientific inquiry, especially as it relates to the brain.

Interventions designed to reduce inflammation using natural substances like turmeric have been described in medical literature dating back more than two thousand years.

It actually has been used in traditional Chinese and Indian (ayurvedic) medicine for thousands of years.

Even though it is well know for its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and antibacterial properties, its ability to increase BDNF (Brain-derived neurotrophic factor) in particular is what is getting the attention of neuroscientists around the world.

That’s the part that got my attention too. It’s a brain enhancer.

Turmeric is crazy because it has the ability to activate genes to produce a vast array of antioxidants that serve to protect our mitochondria. It also improves glucose metabolism.

Basically a bunch of epidemiologists figured out that communities that use turmeric in abundance have WAY less dementia.

So people are using this spice as a way to prevent and relieve symptoms of Alzheimers and dementia.

You should definitely add this amazing spice to your daily protocol.

Chances are you don’t want to eat curry everyday though. So the good news is you can take it as a supplement. It is a water-soluble supplement so it’s metabolized pretty fast. That also means it’s probably best to take it twice daily.

I take 400 mg twice daily and even sprinkle the powder on certain food dishes.

The bottom line is I take this because it enhances my brain function and has powerful antioxidant effects that neutralize free radicals as it stimulates my body’s own antioxidant enzymes. Yeah… it’s pretty bad ass.

You can go to your local health food store and pick some up or purchase right now here on Amazon.

The good news is, chocolate is a plant and so is coconut!

“Chocolate will make you feel better.” -GOD

Nourish your mind and body and satiate your hunger with healthy fats, protein and fiber!

WARNING: THESE ARE ADDICTING AND AMAZINGLY GOOD FOR YOU.

CHOCOLATE + COCONUT = PARADISE INSIDE YOUR BODY.

Coconut is a super-nutrient food, nourishes your brain and body, satiating hunger with healthy fats, protein and fiber.

When you eat coconut, the MCTs it contains are transported from the intestinal tract to the liver and immediately transformed into fuel.

This then means there is very little fat left to circulate and leave deposits in the body.

EATING COCONUT CAN PREVENT AGAINST HEART DISEASE AND STROKE.

As it turns out, coconut meat’s measurable vitamins A and E, and polyphenols and phytosterols, all work together to decrease the levels of LDL cholesterol.

DARK CHOCOLATE IS EVERYONE’S FAVORITE CHEAT FOOD.

Dark chocolate is one of natures strongest antioxidants.

That means it’s really good at getting toxins out of your body.

Toxins are bad. They will kill you.

Eat dark chocolate and live.

Dark chocolate contains hundreds of blissful, health-promoting properties that support a positive mood and healthy cognition.

This is a brain-healthy treat that won’t make you fat and should never make you feel guilty. Eat as many as your heart desires. Then run to the gym in your weighted vest.

ALSO IT IS GLUTEN FREE!
