It is that time of year again, in my area: winter, cold, slippery conditions.
Please be sure you are careful, and stay in shape to take the bumps and bruises for the occasional fall.
Even better, take it a step further by working on your balance so you are able to prevent losing your footing and able to catch yourself before the dreaded spill.
If you don't already have such a product, you can try: 1.) anti slip tread soles on shoes and 2.) ice cleats that attach to footwear.
Enjoy what we have left of the winter season; the bluebirds sighting and longer days tell us that spring is not too far away.
If the CDC does not allow these products in their offices, why are you still using them? Are you aware that people who may seem unsociable may actually have multiple chemical sensitivity? Being around chemicals causes irritations that you may not be aware of ...yet.
Two sources listed above should help you make healthier decisions.
Please, be careful, enjoy your life; but, also be sensitive to others as well as yourself.
I urge you to read the article, link above.
If you do not have time, please know this: washing with plain old soap and water is all you need. Your skin has good germs which protect you from the harmful germs. When you start killing everything off, with chemicals, none the less, you do more harm than good. The harm is hormone disruption and the creation of superbugs. Sound familiar?
Bottom line: clean does not have an odor; chemicals have odors. Yes, some chemicals are odorless. Please be aware of what you are using, around and on, your family and home.
Stay safe and enjoy your healthy day.
This is big news, figuratively and literally, for managing the symptoms of Parkinson Disease. Click on the lsvtglobal.com link for the details of scientific proof of this practice.
The big takeaway is for the PD person to 1.) exaggerate all whole body moves to improve the brain's neural plasticity and 2.) go just outside the comfort zone during cardiovascular training.
There is hope and it is possible for "mind over matter" to work at managing and relieving PD symptoms.
I just sent notes to my members of Congress around the Personal Health Investment Today Act and hope that you will consider doing the same.
I was recently contacted by someone who is moved by certain comments I make on the online IDEA Answers forum about multiple chemical sensitivity. This person does not remember what they were looking for or how they ended up seeing my post; but, I am ever so grateful for the help and resources that makes this possible.

Thank you IDEA, fellow trainers, and my new friend, who out of the goodness of their heart, gave me their time and advice of what works for them. I am now using those tips to reinforce for my clients what may and may not bring relief. Now it is up to the clients to decide which options to try first, if not all, simultaneously.
The most important piece of advice this person gives is: there is hope and you can heal.
Wishing you all continued success on your health and fitness journey.
A huge thank you to the stranger, now friend, who goes out of their way to help me help you.
Please be sure to use extreme caution if you decide to use a high elevation training mask. You will want to get the device approved by both your doctor and athletic trainer before use.
I heard about someone having life threatening problems from using a high elevation training mask. This male had an unknown lung condition which predisposed him to severe pain that was not being properly diagnosed; because, if the doctor does not know this device is being used they do not know to look extra carefully at the tests and images. Please be sure to tell the medical staff every little detail of training and lifestyle to get the best care possible that just may save your life and get you pain free quicker.
Have fun with your training devices; but, please do so carefully, do your research and get professional approval.
Happy blessed birthday anniversary to United States of America.
What better way to celebrate than use our independence daily to help keep America going strong.
To remain independent we must remember to follow a healthy balanced eating plan for the most nutrient dense nourishment possible.
Then continue our balanced exercise program which incorporates cross training for injury prevention and longevity.
Add to that our well designed rest and relaxation techniques for optimal regeneration and repair.
Enjoy your independence on our nation's birthday and beyond. My wish for all of you is a happy, healthy and safe, pain free life.
Beware of using your activity tracking device, be it expensive or not.
This can save your life or harm you. How?
The information being stored has been used at the doctor's office to help diagnose the presence of illness. The doctor will compare your information with their office numbers. We are more relaxed and active when away from the doctor; so, you can see how this will give the doctor a more complete picture of your well being. If you are lost, the gps will help locate you.
On the flip side, the fitness tracker device will give away your location. Are you trying to avoid someone? Also, the tracking device is not completely accurate, the numbers may be, and most probably are, quite off; so, use the device as a comparison to the previous day for logging improvement.
Therefore, please, use the fitness tracker wisely and take the information it gives you with the grain of salt. They are helpful and fun to use when you understand the goal of these items.
