“Hey everyone! Cory from EarthFIT here. It is January 2019, good time for a challenge so I’m going to have for you guys the Squat Challenge.
The goal is that for 5 days in 1 week you’re able to get a hundred body weight squats in one day. So the progression with that, you want to start out with 3 sets of 15. And then from there, you know, work up to 3 sets of 20, and add another set: 4 sets of 20, so you already we’re at 80 and then you can work up to being able to do 2 sets of 50 or maybe even a hundred squats straight.
So when you do the squats: we are doing 100 squats. I don’t want you to just go as fast as you can, half way down, just to bust out reps, so make sure that you’re going all the way down, the chest stays up and you set your hips back behind you, watching the knees here (please see the video). The knees are going to bend and the hips are going to go back behind you, so you’re nice and controlled, going all the way down, all the way up. That’s what it should look like from the side if you’re doing the squats, and then if you look at from the front the knees have to be going the same way as the toes, so you don’t want to go super wide and let the knees cave in… we want to bring your stance in a bit, flare your toes out slightly, make sure that your knees are passing, or going the same direction as the toes, so nice and controlled. Start out where you are at wherever you’re at: 3 sets of 15, 4 sets of 20, whatever it is, then be able to work up to doing 100 squats everyday 5 days a week.”
“First of all I want to thank the host for allowing me to spend few minutes to discuss the bio charger.
It’s one of the latest biohacking recovery technology. We are very excited to present to a group like you because you know more than most about recovery and just before we get rolling out of curiosity how many folks in the room have some familiarity with cryotherapy? How about compression therapy? And how about light photon energy or cold laser?
Those are all newer technologies that are finding a place into not only the athletic arena but in just helping people in general health and wellness. We’ll talk about how those compare in a minute.
Really the conversation today starts with cellular voltage. I keep go through probably 10 slides about ATP and TMP and mitochondria and all the things, that form of energy in ourselves but if we just take it 60,000 feet and say what happens if you have optimal energy or optimal voltage within a cell?
So first of all, just some basic 9th grade science water which represents about 60/70 percent of our cells cannot absorbed oxygen without the presence of voltage. So zero voltage is a dead cell. Optimal voltage which is arguably between 60 and 70 millivolts that can be measured on the inside of the cell allows a high concentration of a oxygen to be absorbed. In a nutshell, when you can achieve optimal cellular voltage, two things happen:
It starts a chain reaction. One is better uptake of nutrients so we can eat all the right things but our cells are not absorbing them if they don’t have the right voltage to turn that into ATP.
Second thing that happens which is critical importance of critical importance is detoxification at the cellular level so getting rid of the bad stuff. You put racing fuel in your gas tank but you got sludge in the bottom you aren’t going to have a peaking performance vehicle so if we look a little bit more closely at once you’ve achieve optimum cellular level, you’ve got good uptake and detoxification the next thing that happens is it begins to reduce inflammation.
Inflammation is a huge factor in sports and recovery but it’s also the number 1 root cause of the top 10 death causing disease in the US today so it’s a big deal.
Inflammation is a root of a lot of bad stuff happening in the body so to be able to reduce that… and by the way, when you increase ATP production you diminish oxidative stress and free radicals. So if you imagine a seesaw, the more ATP the less oxidation and free radicals, vice versa if you have lower ATP count.
A strengthen immune system is a by product and this is kind of an interesting. It’s one of these things that its hard to quantify and describe but an elevated sense of cognitive ability. There is an absolute impact to your memory, your mental quickness, your attitude when you have achieved optimal cellular voltage.
So those are all good things and then obviously it boosts circulation as well. Now if you look and have reduced less than optimum cellular voltage which most of us have, we’re not at an optimal level. It works in the other direction so it begin to deteriorate – you don’t feel as well, you don’t have energy, you begin to get sick, and you know a death spiral basically.
So if you believe that one of the keys to health at a cellular level is peak voltage, have an optimal voltage then the question becomes how do we get it? How does our body get that voltage? How do we achieve optimal voltage in the cells?
We know what to do with our cell phones. It’s not quite so easy with our cells but there’s an answer and the answer Is that there are these invisible magnetic and or light or other types of energy field so that are in our presence that are actually what provides that voltage to our cells. And if you look initially at the earth’s resonance/ Schumann’s resonance, we talk about some of the types of subtle energies that there are, we talked about a little bit earlier pulse electromagnetic fields. There’s another a visible light component photonic energy, red light therapy or infrared therapy that’s a subset of the visible light spectrum that we’re representing using the bio charger so you get a more rich broader spectrum of light energy. You have basically frequencies in harmonics which are equivalent to radio waves and then you have high voltage and the combination of those energies transmitted the right way can recharge our cells. So when the right set of frequencies of harmonics are combined with the right types of energy and the right power density, you can affect every cell in the body not just on the outside, frequencies and harmonics enable you to penetrate the entire body.
Why don’t we have optimal energy today without having to have a supplement?
First answer is our modern lifestyles are much different than they were originally when you’d walk around outside for 5 hours a day and bare feet under the sunlight which wherein now if we’re in sunlight we covered up from it. You don’t have crashing waves or negative ions present all the time. You’re not under lightning and lightning storms and you are not rounded to the earth’s natural magnetism so if you want to take and restore vital energy you can go outside and do those things. Go out to nature and it will restore it but most of us don’t have the time in our busy schedules to do that.
The other factors are toxic environment. Obviously, there’s stress but the food that we eat and the water that we drink is not necessarily is as healthy as we like and if you look at just ton of our environment overall – a lot of stress, a lot of other types of a EMF waves and interference that is out there that can throw you out of balance. So the beauty of that is that aside from a naturally provided energy is that we just talked about, there’s technology, technological examples that are helping to restore subtle energy within the body. Some of you may have been familiar with Nikola Tesla. Aside from the car, he was the first person to really identify that you could transmit energy wirelessly and that was way ahead of his time. It’s interesting there’s a story they ask Albert Einstein what was it like to be the smartest guy in the world and he said ask Nikola Tesla. The guy was way ahead of his time. There’s also a gentlemen from originally I think from San Diego – Royal Rife who was at a turn of a century who start curing cancer and so the American Medical Association shut him down using radio waves and frequencies.
So likewise you all probably familiar with Ten’s technology been around for a long time, PEMF we talked about and different forms of light technology. What we envisioned, we being the company advanced bio technologies was to be able to help Jim Gerard who is in the back of the room there and strongly suggests you get a chance to spend a couple minutes with over the next couple days.
He is the original inventor of the BioCharger and spent 25+ years studying Tesla, studying Rife, studying these technologies and I want him tell you more about it but he did a lot of research and a lot of experimentation before we got to the point where we release and introduce the BioCharger.
So what the BioCharger is a way to take the most valuable resource that we have which is our time and compress it into a very short period of time roughly 10 minutes 2-3 times a week and it will replenish and restore your cellular voltage to the optimal levels. We’re producing those 4 types of energies that I mentioned but being controlled by software. The granularity, the repeatability, the accuracy in our ability to specify different frequency… all the parameters that determine where these energy goes and how it’s being used. You know our cells for example all have a different resonance. They all have resonance but no 2 are the same. If you can produce a strong, rich, broad set of harmonics and frequencies that encompasses the full range of the resonance in our cells, you’ve essentially affect that every cell.
So the BioCharger is the most efficient and effective way to help restore that cellular voltage. There’s a few other components that (I won’t go into now but we believe that there’s a lot more once we get started that could be done and so we built out cloud infrastructure and we built out every BioChargers connected via the internet to the cloud so that when there is a new recipe which is an energy frequency program that’s designed for specific indication no matter who develops that, we test it and we put it in the cloud so all customers have access to it. So when Ken is looking for you know something for nerve damage for one of his players and he doesn’t have a recipe for that on his system already he could go to the cloud to a search, find one that works, download it and you’re off running down on that recipe. If one doesn’t exist, we have a team that actually does the research to find what the relationship is between which your client to solve and the frequencies that are associated with it so this is all science based. We’ve got hundred of systems installed around the world or 14 countries outside the US and we have some marquee customers that we’d love to share with you, couple the top surfers in the world. We have the olympic gold medalist, Erin Cafaro who is a huge advocate. You know, Ken and the Diamondbacks started using it years ago, we’re now at the Braves, and hopefully after this event we’ll have a chance to talk to you more about it how this might be helpful for the teams you are associated with but a good group and more importantly I think if you look at the orientation this system and where it started and who was buying, and bringing in were practitioners. It’s an alternative healing folks that we’re looking for new ways to overcome some of the chronic diseases that we face today. So it’s steeped in a lot of history, the technology took the legacy technology that were available through Rife, Tesla and some of these other geniuses but we also overlay today’s technology to be able to take advantage of it and bring it through fruition.
One of the other things that I’d say is that we’ve got 2 systems here today and we’ll have them through end of day tomorrow. We’re going to set the second system is set up in a room around the corner here so a little quieter and it’s kind of a nice setting so I would encourage and invite any one all of you to try few sessions a day if you can and notice what you feel. Call it subtle energy sometimes it’s not so subtle but it’s a pretty amazing technology. We appreciate having the chance to tell you a little bit about it. We look forward to your feedback and how we can perhaps work together in the future and answer I’d answer any questions that you might have. Alright I guess that does it. Well thanks very much.
There kind of 2 warnings just that are practical one is no pacemakers or insulin pumps or electro mechanical device. You want to start at a 6ft radius and work your way in and the other is folks that have a lot of toxicity in them especially folks with lyme or if people have parasite issues or you know just a toxic body they wanted start very slow so you do 1 session and wait a couple days and see how you feel because it does absolutely accelerate detoxification. I could tell you we’ve seen, we hear stories every week and a lot of them about and keep you up late or where people got their life back and if you have had opportunity to see some of the things that we’ve seen with bio charger and how it’s affected people’s health that were in a pretty bad shape you know you’d have no question about how it can be effective to help athletes in a recovery.
Cost- $12,000 and there’s a two-year parson waiver warranty. We have full customer service software updates access to the cloud, unlimited access to the recipe library are all part of that…
So first of all we work with a couple great financing companies that concentrate on alternative and Nick Mick is one of them who if you’re chiropractor you probably know who they are their insurance company for chiropractors so it’s great financing most of our customers will charge either something somewhere on the twenty to thirty forty dollars a session or sell a package of sessions or do a monthly fixed fee for it and a PBM example we have a chiropractor up in Charlotte Michigan Dr. Rouler who if anyone knows where that is it’s in the Spitz in Michigan. He started out so look anyone who wants to use a bio charger $50 a month flat fee I[‘m gonna have it available three days a week and I’m gonna have my assistant here and log you come in and he has seven chairs around that around the bio charger and runs one recipe only this first month you get eighty people. He now has four hundred people a month signed up to this step so his ROI you know is like 2 weeks for a paid ad but the reason that that many people in that number is wrong is because the word gets out people get you know it’s all it’s all about results they’re getting the results and you’ll see that too when you’re bringing in a lot of times some when we don’t recommend give away free session so might let somebody have a session but have them by a series of sessions or you know for two weeks they do two or three times a week for 2 weeks they’ll be believers and you won’t have to ask me to come anymore they’ll be asking you.
The road to your dreams isn’t always easy to navigate, sometimes dotted with mountains to climb, obstacles to overcome—and hard, mind-numbing times that will make you feel like quitting.

If you’re passionate about fitness, you know how important maintaining good overall health is to achieving your athletic goals. A strong metabolism, efficient immune system, and well-nourished body are key when you’re hoping to log significant hours at the gym – but with all the toxins we’re exposed to in our modern lives, we end up feeling lethargic, irritable, and bloated. And no one wants to go to the gym feeling like that.
Stress, animal protein, alcohol and caffeine, and processed foods can wreak havoc inside our bodies – but engaging in a healthy detox can help get you back on track and ready to tackle new fitness obstacles. There are a number of reasons why detox is such an important, healthy practice for everyone, but athletes in particular will find that participating in a regular detox is an essential activity.
Detox promotes healthy eating habits.
If you’re the kind of person who likes to hit the gym to make up for a bad diet, detox could be just what you need to fix your eating habits once and for all. Most detox diets will require you to reduce your intake of unhealthy foods and replace them with more nutrient-rich options.
While you can always return to your regular diet after the detox is over, most people find that after the initial withdrawal period is over, it’s easier to find the motivation to maintain the new healthier eating plan.
Detox stimulates the immune system.
Your body will be better prepared to fight off illnesses and infections that might keep you from working out with a regular detox. Cleansing your body of toxins and impurities allows your organs to more easily absorb the nutrients you need, and helps restore balance to all your body’s functions.
With a stronger immune system, your body will be able to support you as you pursue greater physical fitness – and you won’t need to be as concerned about recovery time or healing after an injury.
Detox increases energy levels.
When you find yourself skipping the gym in favor of spending an extra hour or two in bed, it might be time to think about engaging in a detox. Thanks to the increased nutrients your body will be absorbing, and the healthier diet choices you’ll make during a detox, you’ll find yourself feeling revitalized and more energetic.
The detox will also promote enhanced mental clarity, which will increase your energy levels as well. You can maintain this stimulated feeling by continuing with the detox diet and limiting your intake of sugar-rich foods.
Detox boosts weight loss.
If your fitness goals are tied to weight loss, detox is a great way to jumpstart the process – help you get past a plateau if you’ve been struggling to get back on track. It’s not just about reduced calories, though. The toxins that accumulate in your body can actually lead to excess fat and mucous, which your body will use to protect your body from the waste.
Detox will enhance your digestive system, boost your metabolism, and reduce bloating, as well – all of which will contribute to healthy, regular weight loss.
Detox reduces stress.
Stress is one of the most toxic things you can do to your body, and regular stress management practices have proven to lower fatty acid levels and even cholesterol in the blood. A detox can help equip your body with everything it needs to fight the impacts of stress, allowing you to feel more confident and optimistic.
You’ll enjoy a better mood and more relaxed outlook with regular detox practice – and everyone else in your life will benefit from your calmness, as well. Exercise also helps keep stress manageable, so when you combine detox with your regular fitness regimen, you’ll achieve even greater results.
A regular detox can help rejuvenate your entire system – liver, colon, kidneys, brain, skin, lungs, and heart – and brings with it a host of additional health benefits. If you’re aiming to break some personal records and achieve optimum fitness levels, this can be just the thing you need to give you the strength and endurance to get there. Don’t let your health get in the way of your goals – let detox put you on the right path to wellness.

When you first make the commitment to start going to the gym, it seems like it should be an easy task. However, it only takes a few distractions before life starts to get in the way. It’s tempting to spend that extra hour sleeping, or catching up on your favorite show, or meeting friends for a drink after work. And when you’re not seeing the results you had hoped for, it certainly can feel like you might as well throw in the towel. If other people can do it, why can’t you?
Luckily, there are some quick, easy habits you can get into to maintain that drive to stay active, day after day. If you’re looking to keep yourself motivated to go to the gym, try incorporating some of these tips – you might find the encouragement you need to stay on track and achieve your fitness goals.
Track your progress.
Whether you decide to invest in a smart watch, use an app on your phone, or just log each workout on your calendar, keeping track of your exercise gives you the chance to see improvements that might not show up on the scale. Maybe you can do more reps of each exercise, or you’re putting more miles on the treadmill in less time – celebrating these small victories is a great way to stay on track.
If you’re comfortable with it and you have a supportive network, share your progress on social media for even more encouragement and motivation.
Exercise with friends.
You can take that idea a step further and find yourself a group of friends who are willing to hold you accountable for your fitness goals. Either recruit members of your family or friend network to hit the gym with you, or reach out to someone who seems to share your interest in health – maybe at a spin or yoga class.
If you can make your daily stop at the gym into a social outing where you can reconnect with friends or loved ones, you’ll find yourself looking forward to your workouts. And not only will you be building muscle – you’ll be building relationships.
Convenience is key.
The more excuses you can find to get out the gym, the easier it gets to skip your workout each day. Maybe you only have one pair of jogging shorts, or you keep your gym bag tucked in the back of your closet – whatever it is, you’ll find a way to use it to get out of hitting the gym. Get yourself enough workout clothes to last the week without having to do laundry, and keep all your equipment within view.
If you can make going to the gym an easy part of your day – and one that’s hard to ignore – you’ll be much more motivated to keep it up.
Build a routine.
For working out to become a habit, you need to make going to the gym and being active a normal part of your daily life. Not only should you schedule a time to hit the gym each day, you should find other ways to incorporate activity into your routine – take the stairs, walk around your office building during breaks, and park further away from the store when you pick up groceries.
The more ways you can make fitness a part of your routine, the more natural it will feel to spend that hour at the gym, every single day.
Set realistic, achievable fitness goals – and don’t be afraid to reward yourself when you reach them. However, this doesn’t mean splurging on a big meal that’s going to undo all your hard work. Find treats that don’t involve food, like buying yourself a new pair of running shoes, getting yourself a massage, or take a day off work to spend some time doing your favorite hobby, guilt-free.
Whatever it is, let the promise of the next reward encourage you to work even harder at your next set of goals.
Hopefully, making some of these changes will make it easier for you to get in gear and keep yourself motivated to hit the gym. You can keep this list bookmarked or even printed out in a spot where you’ll see it regularly, to stay focused and working toward looking and feeling your best. Your health and fitness goals are within your reach – just keep that motivation up!

“Hey! What’s going on? Since we are in full blown flu and cold season and I have people asking me all the time every day what to do to prevent the flu but also to recover from it and getting congestion and phlegm out of the body. So I’m going to explain to you now some of the best natural ways to help recover you from the flu and also to prevent it during the winter season because let’s face it, that’s the time when most people are coming down with illnesses, colds, flu, etc.. And so I’m going to break down what and why I do certain things and so we have a few things here you might recognize some of them, maybe some of them you have never even have heard before like Cajeput Oil which I’ll explain Cajeput… you might have seen my son speak about that in the video. I’m going to explain to you why I do it, what I do so we’re gonna start first off about getting sick.
Now we have what’s called free radicals in the body. Free radicals are created when we workout, we have stress etc. and some of it is normal and totally fine and needed but when we have excessive free radicals in the body then that’s when we can start to have effects on the immune system and pick up colds, flus, viruses, etc. and so we use a food typically we want to use food all the time to help boost our immune system with vitamins and minerals. But sometimes we need supplements to help assist us along the way and as you see some of these are not supplements, they are actually food. Alright, so we have some food here but these supplements that I have here right now are extremely powerful at assisting our body. So let’s speak about Vitamin C.
Vitamin C – is an antioxidant so when we have free radicals we want to neutralize them with antioxidants and we’ll take in let’s say vitamin C and that goes into the cell and it helps with memory, immune function, it even helps you just feeling better overall. So this vitamin C right here is Meta-C. The type of vitamin C is extremely important. We want to stay away from the genetically modified corn based vitamin C’s and you want to get a good form of vitamin C like this has biologically active metabolites and so this gets metabolites a little bit differently and it comes from spirulina as well so spirulina also helps with the detoxification. So right here this is 500mg of meta calcium ascorbate. There’s many different types of vitamin C which leads me to my next one which is this is by mercola that I bought. This is liposomal vitamin C.
Liposomal Vitamin C – Many times vitamin C doesn’t get absorbed like it should and gets caught up in the gut and ends up staying there in the gut. Liposomal vitamin C gets absorbed a lot easier through the gut and into the cells and this is where you want the vitamin C to go. So this is very powerful, this is fairly new as it comes to a supplement industry so you might see liposomal vitamin C or a liposomal glutathione products out there and they help with the absorption rate.
Acetylcysteine – is another thing that I use. It helps glutathione production which is one of the biggest antioxidants or the number 1 as some people say antioxidant needed and this also helps process mucusout of the body.
So these 2 together (Liposomal Vitamin C and Acetylcysteine) are very powerful so just using those will help boost the immune system, help neutralize the free radicals that you might have in your body especially if you’re sick or you feel like you’re coming down with something, these are very important. Now I did something that I’m not supposed to do the other day which I tell all of my clients not to do. I woke up I felt like I was like fighting something at the night, I woke up and I had like a little tickling my throat with a phlegm and I went and trained with my staff, I worked out. Working out while you’re under the weather is a no no because you already have the free radicals there, your body is fighting, your immune system is working to help combat the issue that is there and then if you’re going to workout that lowers your immune system and then exposes you to you know getting worst infection or whatever it might be. And so I ended up working out. I cut the workout short because I was like guys this is probably not good for me, I was feeling something but I wasn’t sure if I was really sick or not. It turns out yeah I should’ve definitely not workout and I ended up getting like a full blown flu and I haven’t gotten that a long time. But, I know how to get rid of it very quickly so in one night I was able to get rid off I had a swollen throat, burning in my throat, joint aches and pains, fatigue when you walk… so I started of with a vitamin C and then to get rid of the congestion and the throat issue this was helping with the congestion on the throat as well but this is one of the best oils around for numerous functions and it’s oil of oregano.
Oil of Oregano – This one Joy of the Mountains is one of my favorite. It is diluted with olive oil and this stuff is powerful so I’ll take depending on where you are, how much you have used before, you can take 4 or 5, 10 drops put it on to the bottom of your tongue, drink it with some water there you go or you mix it with olive oil and rub it on the bottom of your feet. This is already mixed, this is already diluted. We have some here that’s not diluted so you have to be very careful and really know what you’re doing with this. This stuff right here like I said is diluted, you can take drops put them right in your mouth, you’ll instantly start to feel better, the burning in the throat will disappear. This is antiseptic, anaesthetic, it helps numb the area. So it’s antibacterial, it helps with sinuses like this is proven through studies to be helpful for pneumonia, bronchitis etc., sinus infections and respiratory infections, one of the most powerful tools that you can use so we’re talking about helping yourself naturally so this is a natural product that will help.
Oreganol Juice – I use both of these in combination because there are a little bit different properties in both of them so when I take a few drops of these (Oil of Oregano), I take a teaspoon of this… Bam! It knocks out most of the issues right away. Then on top of that now I’ve taken these 2 things (Liposomal Vitamin C and Acetylcysteine) It helps process out the mucus and then I help that along even further with oil pulling.
Coconut Oil – usually I use coconut oil but you can use sesame oil, it has been the one that studied the most. Coconut oil that I found works fine so when I wake up in the morning and before I go to bed at night usually I wake until after I’ve eaten at least the half hour. I take coconut oil I put it in my mouth and I swish it around for 15 minutes and just like pull it through your teeth and push it out… and that draws out the bacteria, the mucus from your respiratory system as well as your mouth. And then you may have heard about oil pulling.
Bentonite Clay – Most people have not heard about this mainly because just from knowing how the body works I tested this out and this has been one of the best things for me when it comes to mucus.It’s a little bit disgusting but I’ll do the oil pulling and then I take bentonite clay and I put it in like about a tablespoon or teaspoon in this much water, stir around I let it sit for a little while because what happens is, what it does is it opens up the pores to absorb the toxins. So I pour this in the water, I put the water in my mouth, I swish the bentonite clay around and then it absorbs more of the toxins and it pulls out, it draws out all of the mucus literally like right then and there, like there’s no waiting it’s just like I swish it around for 5 minutes, I gargle with it if you have a sore throat, the sore throat will dissipate instantly, it will pull out the toxins from your sore throat and then you spit the water out.
Very important thing you want to make sure that you spit this out in the toilet or outside because when you’re oil pulling it really pulls out some terrible toxins that you do not want to spit into your sink so that’s one caveat then one thing I didn’t bring here which is very powerful as well and this are other things that I used to assist in the process is I’ll take a shot of apple cider vinegar and directly after that I take like a half of teaspoon of Manuka honey.
Manuka Honey – Not all things are created equal. At most stores you’ll see manuka honey with an MGO+ of about 15. For this to be beneficial to you medicinally has to have MGO of above 16. So I would say if you go to Whole Foods, I would say pretty much not all of those are really not beneficial to most that I’ve seent that Whole Foods is like +20. This is one is +820. Now this stuff is powerful medicinal. What that means is how powerful it is as an antiseptic. And so it has a higher enzymes, more beneficial properties to it. The higher it is on MGO, the more expensive it is going to be. This honey right here is about $45-50 so you can use it sparingly, it’s not something you want to put in your tea but I have done that as well because as soon as this is heated up it kills all the good enzymes so that’s why you don’t want to put that in your tea.
Now the other thing , so I would do all these things and on top of that I drink this tea that I am about to go over with you anyways but, this is a tea that is extremely powerful. I share it with everybody even the other day someone said “Hey, my girlfriend was drinking your ginger turmeric lemon honey tea and she was losing a pound a day just by drinking your tea” and I was like “Whoa! that’s the first time I’ve heard of that…” and she hasn’t changed anything else but drank the tea so this helps open up your detox pathway. So the tea is giner; this is ginger root. I shave this off, I grated up. Usually when I make it I make big bushes of it so I use a massive amounts of ginger root. The more, the better. Then smaller amount of turmeric probably about 1/3 amount of ginger that you use, same thing shave this down, grate it, put it into a pot, steep it for at least 20 minutes the longer the better. Once the tea is steeped, you strain it, put a lemon. I literally put sometimes a whole lemon in so 8 oz, I put a whole lemon, I’ll squeeze it all in there or a half of lemon right depending on how many lemons we have, who’s using it, and then I’ll stir in raw honey. And then drink that throughout the day.
Ginger Turmeric Lemon Honey Tea – And that’s going to open up the pores, open up your circulation. Ginger is anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, this is a blood thinner so it helps with circulation. Turmeric helps everything brain functions, I mean like (the list goes on and on), inflammation, this helps with inflammation. This ginger also has what’s called a cox 2 inhibitor, it’s a pain reliever, they put that in ibuprofen so they’re using properties from this in some of the over-the-counter medications.
So it probably seems like a lot. I guess now that I put them together it is but I don’t think about it when I’m doing it. It’s just like couple of these, shots of apple cider vinegar, a little table spoon of that, this tastes really good so that’s awesome. The tea that I make tastes great. I drink it even not when I’m sick because I use it as recovery for even training because it’s anti inflammatory it’s awesome it helps with recovery from a hard intense workout. This (Oil of Oregano, Oreganol Juice) typically I only use in the times that I need it and we use these I mean if my son has a fever we put it a drop, I put it on his foot. It’s gone instantly. And then these (Oil pulling) I only use when I’m feeling sick or run down as well. You can do oil pulling every night it’s not a big deal, that’s actually very healthy for your mouth and your teeth. This (Bentonite clay) I’m not too sure about the long term use of Bentonite clay but I’d think… I’m not sure I can’t really give opinion on that ‘cause I haven’t studied it. The last thing I want to talk about is the Cajeput oil.
Cajeput Oil – This is the antiseptic, anti inflammatory but it also helps process mucus out of the body as well and this stuff works really great. This is like powerful stuff, from plant therapy, it’s organic cajeput oil. Again, you can take it dilute it with coconut oil and put it on the bottom of your feet. The reason why I’ve been saying put on the bottom of your feet because you have about 200 nerves at the bottom of your feet so that nutrients gets transported throughout the body a lot easier, much better but you could also put it where you need it. I’ve taken it and I put it on my chest when I’ve had congestion and it helps process the mucus out.
So, I hope you find this helpful. If you have any comments or questions about any of these stuff, let me know. These right here if you have any cold, flu symptoms, any type of sickness for the most part like it’s not obviously disease that you are ailing from. This will get rid of it and you will feel better like 50, 70, 80% faster than if you did nothing or even if you got over the counter medication because if you got medication for your colds, flu, sickness whatever you have to recover from the flu and at the same time recover from the toxins that you put into your body from the over the counter medication which is most of the time the case that you’re getting over the counter medication. I hope again you find this helpful. This is really powerful stuff. Remember, food is your medicine and we’re taking properties from food naturally and using these to help the body assist to along the way, to recover and feel better. Alright, have a good day!”
If I was asked “what is the simplest, easiest and most cost efficient/time efficient way to improve my health, what would it be?”
I would have a simple answer to that… but before I tell you there is an awesome video linked below form Dr. Rhonda Patrick, PhD about unbelievable impact heat and cold can have on your health specifically the sauna and a cold plunge.
My answer to the first question is… A cold shower.
and to take that even further…
Contrast conditioning (going from hot to cold) has unbelievable benefits to the nervous system, the cells and energy production. Cold showers as well as contrast conditioning also helps to tone the vagus nerve, the 10th cranial nerve, which is the longest nerve of the autonomic nervous system. The autonomic nervous system is responsible for mostly all unconscious functions of the body. Jumping from the sauna to a cold shower is a great way to hack on the nervous system. A stronger vagus nerve can help you relax faster after stress, who wouldn’t want that?
“The vagus nerve starts in the brainstem, just behind the ears. It travels down each side of the neck, across the chest and down through the abdomen. ‘Vagus’ is Latin for ‘wandering’ and indeed this bundle of nerve fibres roves through the body, networking the brain with the stomach and digestive tract, the lungs, heart, spleen, intestines, liver and kidneys, not to mention a range of other nerves that are involved in speech, eye contact, facial expressions and even your ability to tune in to other people’s voices.
It is made of thousands and thousands of fibres and 80 per cent of them are sensory, meaning that the vagus nerve reports back to your brain what is going on in your organs. Operating far below the level of our conscious minds, the vagus nerve is vital for keeping our bodies healthy. It is an essential part of the parasympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for calming organs after the stressed ‘fight-or-flight’ adrenaline response to danger. Not all vagus nerves are the same, however: some people have stronger vagus activity, which means their bodies can relax faster after a stress. The strength of your vagus response is known as your vagal tone and it can be determined by using an electrocardiogram to measure heart rate. Every time you breathe in, your heart beats faster in order to speed the flow of oxygenated blood around your body. Breathe out and your heart rate slows. This variability is one of many things regulated by the vagus nerve, which is active when you breathe out but suppressed when you breathe in, so the bigger your difference in heart rate when breathing in and out, the higher your vagal tone.
Research shows that a high vagal tone makes your body better at regulating blood glucose levels, reducing the likelihood of diabetes, stroke and cardiovascular disease. Low vagal tone, however, has been associated with chronic inflammation. As part of the immune system, inflammation has a useful role helping the body to heal after an injury, for example, but it can damage organs and blood vessels if it persists when it is not needed. One of the vagus nerve’s jobs is to reset the immune system and switch off production of proteins that fuel inflammation. Low vagal tone means this regulation is less effective and inflammation can become excessive, such as in Maria Vrind’s rheumatoid arthritis or in toxic shock syndrome, which Kevin Tracey believes killed little Janice.” CLICK HERE OR WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW TO GET EDUCATED 🙂
P.S. I have been asked to be an ambassador of Inov8 shoes. It was an easy decision since they are my favorite workout shoe ever since I tried one on about 6 years ago. I used to where nothing but Nike until I put on a pair of Inov8. I have clients asking me all the time about the best workout shoe and I always recommend them. Look out for an email from me about a Inov8 workshop Feb. 28th where all EarthFIT clients will get an opportunity to check out these shoes and see if they are a good fit.
P.P.S. On Feb. 21st Holistic Dr. Moshe Dekel will be doing a workshop on optimizing health using natural approaches. More info to come.
