Longeviety Genius Conference

This was Dr David Hamilton, he spoke of how to heal your body with your mind. Apparantly the body cannot distinguish whether it is having an experience or you are imagining it with your mind. A good example of this is a man getting an erection by fantasizing ;) He gave an example of people healing themselves through visualising.
He said when we show love and affection to others that everyone benefits by getting a boost of the happy hormone oxytocin including anybody that is watching. Hugging softens hardened arteries around the heart! So ''A Hug A Day Keeps The Cardiologist Away'' were his last words as he closed his highly informitive and entertaining speech.

Next up was David Wolfe, he spoke of the medicinal power of foods. The immunity boosting power mushrooms such as chaga, reishi and cordyceps. And also simple things like the healing compuonds in brocolli and avocado. He talked about cleansing the body and other cures such as DMSO for arthritis.

And last was Dr John Demartini, he is a human behavour specailist. He spoke of his own inspiring story of how he against all odds and with dyslexia became so successful and by doing so he inspires others to do the same. He says to have a vision for yourself and not to compromise on it.

Tasty Treats

This is the birthday cake from my friends birthday party last week. He got the recipe from an Allisa Cohen book, its a Black Forest Gatoux. It was really tasty, rich and moist like a BFG.

A guy who comes into the health shop I work in bought me in a huge bag of herbs he picked from his garden. There is rosemary, thyme, sage, chives, mint, and a cucumber & tomatoes. I was delighted with this gift, this man is so nice. Last week he gave me a basil plant. Here is a pic of some of the herbs I used in a soup, also in the soup was the meat of half a coconut, carrot juice, ginger, garlic, & tumeric.

And here are some juicing ingredients, I aim to have at least 2 litres of juice everyday.

Raw Food Transformation

I am delighted to be working with and documenting the progress and transformation of my friend Martin O Regan. We began this new chapter on monday 26th sept 2011 and we're going to post weekly weights and measurements until Martin is where he wants to be. At the moment he is about 22 stone and his measurements are:

52'' waist
47'' hips
48'' chest
26'' upper leg
16'' upper arm

Here are the before pictures:

I am diet-coaching & personal-training Martin. His diet will consist of raw, organic, vegan nutrient dense foods, with an emphasis on juices and superfoods. Martin has also taken up exercise, which will be helped by the energy he'll have from his new diet.

''We are what we eat, our cells are made from the food we eat. To be a sweet, juicy and colorful person eat a diet that is sweet & rich in juice & color''

On the first week of Martin's new healthy lifestyle his measurements are as follows:

48'' waist
46'' hips
46.5 chest
25'' upper leg
16'' upper arm

Week 2 seen him shed even more inches:

47'' waist
46'' hip
46'' chest
24.5 upper leg
15'' upper arm

Week 3 and he has dropped 3 stone!!

47'' waist
46.5 chest
45'' hip
24.5 leg
15'' arm

3 down 7 to go!

New Year Juice Feast

I am embarking on a good old juice feast to bring in the New Year. On this one I'll not have any bee-pollen as it starts up my digestive system & its hard to have just a spoon or two. I eat the savory juices from a bowl with a spoon like a soup, which makes it easier.
Today I've had

~ apple, mandarin & ginger juice blended with fresh aloe vera gel, black-seed oil & camu powder
~ juice of 2 cucumber, celery, brocolli, garlic, red onion & ginger
~ apple, cucumber, mandarin & spinach juice blended with camu powder & black-seed oil
Tomorrow I'll get back into exercising after a long break over Christmas.
