“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.”
In this video I break down the crux of what could be causing some of these issues. If you are looking to get healthy, stay healthy and clean up your body, in 2018 and beyond the info in this video just might be what you need to hear.
“Hey! What’s going on? So I wanted to do a video because I’ve been getting ton of questions, people have been messaging, calling, emailing me, etc. about a specific topic and it’s been going on for years and it’s been major problem which I wanted to address and this problem is getting worse and worse… and so I wanted to talk about a specific term which most people don’t really talk about but it’s called “Allostatic load”.
An allostatic load is basically a sum total of the stress that’s been put on your body… Now today we are in chronic stress meaning that we are chronically being exposed to toxins to stressors, jobs, traffic, coffee… all these things. And the reason why I say coffee is because coffee stimulates our sympathetic nervous system. It puts you in a fight or flight mode so if your body wants to recover you start to get tired and then you consume more caffeine, you go right back to that fight or flight mode when you should be in a recovery mode.
The sum total of all these stressors is what’s called allostatic load. Chronic stress can probably be contributed… most sickness that we are dealing with today is from these chronic stress – toxic exposures, parasite, electromagnetic frequencies, etc..
The first thing that I’m going with over today is:
#1 Limit toxic exposure. You cannot get better if you don’t limit your toxic exposure. – limiting the wifi radiation, processed foods, alcohol. Try to eat all fresh foods, no pesticides.
#2 Parasite Cleanse (All natural)- One of the people I always recommend is Hulda Clark’s parasite cleanse because it’s the most thorough, it’s natural… If you try detox and you don’t take care of the initial phase first, you could end up in the worst position. You could mobilise the toxins that are in your body but not excrete them out of your body and then it will get re-absorbed in some timeinto a worst place. So detoxing and parasite cleanse are extremely important.
#3 Improving your Micro-biome – Your micro-biome is your gut flora, it’s where most of your immune system lies… so strong micro flora will be extremely powerful for healing, for preventing diseases. It also helps to consume the toxins so if we eat fermented foods and you have heavy metals in your gut, the fermented food will eat those heavy metals up… Stay away from antibiotics. It’s dangerous to take too many antibiotics and personally I know that it can destroy your gut flora. Your gut flora is directly related to living in a longer, healthy and happier life. If your gut flora is down you’re going to be more depressed. If you are drinking alcohol all the time you know your micro flora is not good, we know that your gut flora is not good.
#4 Maximize Mitochondria. Mitochondria are the energy packs inside the cells of your body. We want to energise and maximise them and the first 3 things are going to help you do that… things that I recommend are the Wim Hof breathing, Red Light therapy, Resveratrol, Magnesium, and Detoxing.
#5 Spend more time in nature. The frequency of nature is in tuned and harmony with our body’s frequency. It’s healing. If you are exposed to toxins, if you’re being exposed to wifi, think of the tree as a healing wifi. It literally giving of good energy and studies have shown that blood pressure is reduced instantly, stress level, cortisol levels reduce instantly when you spend time in nature. So get more connected with the environment that we are used to being connected with. Right now we are used to being connected with a poisoning and toxic environment and it’s getting more and more poisonous and toxic. Use PEMF.
Most of these things can really impact your life. This is going to be vital for your children, vital for your health to really live a happy, healthy, stronger better life into the future because the load of toxins is getting greater, the exposure to wifi is getting greater and you need to know what to do for your friends, and your family to feel better so that you can spread the word, people will start to take action on these things and everybody’s frequency and vibration will be higher and guess what? Your raising frequency affects everyone around you… your frequency, your energy that you’re putting out there gets higher by doing some of these stuff… Focus on the positive, focus on the solution, be solution focused, not problem focused. You will feel better, you will get results, and you will impact all the people in your life around you.”
Today I see many people living sub-optimally and it doesn’t have to be that way, all you have to do is know how to navigate the toxic terrain of todays society to heal, recovery and be at peak performance.

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.

“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!”
“Do you ever have one of those days when nothing goes right for you? Or you wake up and everything just falls apart? Or you hear some really bad news that just changes your feeling and energy?
I used to have days like that all the time. When I was growing up, I would actually wake up pissed off at the world, angry and irritated. I didn’t know why or what was going on until I became conscious that I was living in those depressive feelings. I was unconsciously and continually reinforcing them every time I let them permeate my body, making them more and more ingrained in my psyche. Overcoming low feelings can be extremely challenging, but there’s one emotion that’s very powerful for changing our health and our life, and it’s proven by research and backed by science. That emotion is gratitude. Sure, it is important that we acknowledge those low feelings to let them pass, but if we live in gratitude, we will see those low feelings melt away.
The good news is that every single emotion, every thought and feeling, can be strengthened with practice and effort. Just like a muscle. I know this from personal experience, because I went from feeling depressed, angry, and pissed off at the world to strengthening my gratitude muscle, my appreciation muscle, my compassion muscle, my courage muscle, et cetera. By increasing these positive emotions and feelings, I consequently decreased the strength of my anger, my shame, and my guilt muscles and let the good feelings take control. Try feeling angry when you are feeling grateful; it’s not possible, and the simple fact is when we have a daily practice of gratitude, we transform our feelings, which changes our life. Research has shown that people who have an attitude of gratitude are better at coping with stress, they have less anxiety, they have a greater overall feeling of happiness, as well as less pain and inflammation.
Another thing we know is that people who complain often have higher levels of stress, will have higher levels of inflammation, higher levels of depression etc. I have clients ask me, “What can I do to get out of negative thinking loops?” I always suggest avoiding the vortex of bad news that keeps people at lower levels of feeling, as well as reducing the time spent with people who complain, whine, drain you of energy, and bring you and your thought patterns down. Remove completely, or limit your exposure as best you can, to the negative media/news and other energy vampires in your life. Spend time with individuals who demonstrate gratitude and appreciation for life, and this will increase your health just by helping you feel better about the world and the people around you. Not only will your outlook on life get a boost, but your health can and will improve.
Gratitude is shown to be a point of view that the world is a benevolent place to live in and this benevolence comes from something outside of you. We can always find something to be grateful for, especially in our country. Something as simple as having clean, running, hot water can create a feeling of gratitude. When you focus on strengthening gratitude and other positive feelings in your life rather than giving time and energy to the negativity, you empower not only yourself, but the world around you, attracting more things to be grateful about.
When our beliefs and feelings are directed in this way, every action becomes positive and beneficial to our being. An attitude of gratitude is one of the most powerful emotions that you can bring with you throughout the day to impact your health, your wealth, your happiness, your love… the list goes on and on. I personally enjoy doing a daily dozen gratitude list and writing things down that I’m super grateful for every day, either in the morning or before bed at night. You can also use prayer and meditation to focus on what you’re grateful for. You can write thank you notes to people for whom you are grateful or just send them texts saying that you’re grateful for them. An attitude of gratitude is one of the best emotions to carry around with you daily for your health, wellness and growth.”
“Would you like to learn how to AUTOMATICALLY implement habitual actions that improve your health, energy, body and mind so that you are more productive at work, have more time and energy for your loved ones, as well as your hobbies?
Or, how would you like to set up your life so that you don’t get distracted by unimportant things that prevent you from feeling, doing and performing optimally in all areas of your life?
The best way to ensure you execute the actions that transform your life for the better is to make them habitual… That’s obvious, right?
Did you know that you are (for the most part) already doing the same things, at the same time, everyday, every week, every month, anyway? The same repetitive thoughts, same self-dialog, same actions, and your life is the sum total of those habits currently. Are you presently happy with where those thoughts and actions have gotten you? If not, then the key here is to figure out how to take the actions that give you the results you want, instead of performing the habits that are already programmed and, despite being unwanted, are difficult to stop.
The newest research out of University College London published a study in European Journal of Social Psychology, where 96 participants chose one new habit to do over a 12 week period. They analyzed the data and found, on average, it takes about 66 days to form a new habit; after that, it is set.
Here are some action steps you may want to try to help increase your health, productivity, income or whatever it is you really want out of life through habit formation:
Choose ONE specific goal and write it down and put it somewhere you can see everyday.
Know your outcome: what do you want to see changed (visualize it) and ask yourself this: are you truly committed to making the change?
Clear any blockages that may be preventing you from being committed or making the necessary changes. This might be people, places and things, or it might be an inner dialog that you need to squash. (The more intention and attention you give to your goal, the more conscious you make your actions to achieve it.)
Identify the next right action (NRA) to take that will set the manifestation of your intended outcome in motion.
Take the next required action immediately. Don’t think about it, don’t put it off till tomorrow. Do it now! The only time we have is now to make a change.
Watch the results. Adjust accordingly based on your results
Here is an example that is typical of what I see at our training facility:
Goal: Lose weight
Intended Outcome: Drop 20 lbs and fit into my jeans.
Blockages: I believe I need to go to the gym everyday for hours, so instead, I come home sit on the couch and eat junk food.
Identify NRA: Move more and eat less junk food
Take NRA: Everyday for the next 67 days go for an hour walk/jog, do 20 push-up and throw out the junk food and replace it with nourishing food. More fruits, veggies and lean meats.
In 2 weeks assess the progress to see if it is working. If not, bump up the amount of movement and modify eating regimen.
Start taking the action today so that you get the energy, health and happiness you desire, and you will begin to feel and look amazing!”
