10 Steps to Maintain Healthy Weight as We Age

By Jane Barthelemy. Is it normal and unavoidable for our bodies to expand every year? Nope. A large body is absolutely not a necessary part of aging. We sometimes think of midriff fat as negative only for our outer appearance. But in fact the midriff bulge hides invisible health risks inside your body in both men and women. There are myriad causes and cures for the expanding midriff. It's a poorly understood topic that affects millions. In this heavily researched article I'm offering a multi-leveled approach to causes and solutions to the expanded midriff. ...

Please Remember to Breathe!

Oxygenation is so important to your sanity. To your immune system. When all this craziness is over, you'll be glad you did your breathing. These techniques are top keys to maintaining resilient health - right after having a positive attitude. In a perfect world our cells are rich in oxygen, rejuvenated every night as we sleep. Optimum oxygen levels give you more energy, enhance brain function, and lower stress. You can overcome fatigue easily, you look and feel younger. A low oxygen environment deprives the cells of essential nutrients needed for energy to clean and rebuild. As a result our body fluids and blood can become dirty and toxic. ...

Gender Fluidity and Endocrine Disruptors Linked?

Two articles crossed my desk this week and I made a connection. Like a ZAP! It doesn't take a genius to see that gender identity and chemical exposure are two huge issues for our society today. I know that industrial chemicals disrupt our digestion, our nutrition, emotional state, microbiome, and ALL body functions. Just wondering - is growing gender fluidity part of our spiritual journey? Or is it related to chemicals and prenatal exposure? Or both? Further research is urgently needed. This ...

The Last Forgotten Pandemic: Suicide

When suicides exceed virus deaths, I am concerned. Shall we turn to look at this topic in a gentle and compassionate way? The World Health Organization has estimated that 2.5 million people would take their own lives in 2020. However, it is almost impossible to measure. As suicide is taboo in many cultures, I expect their numbers are understated. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hR1FpgS2lpE   Rising suicide underlines the loneliness and spiritual emptiness that many people ...

Alzheimer’s and Cancer: A Common Cause?

Alzheimer’s Disease affects 50 million people in the world.  This is projected to more than double to 131 million people by 2050. Scientists are calling Alzheimer's Disease "Type 3 Diabetes" because of its link to blood sugar. Let's cut to the chase. Amazingly, we can prevent and even reverse AD if we cut out sugar, refined carbs, add healthy fats, and move the body! The underlying deterioration of the brain in Alzheimer's Disease begins many years earlier with too much sugar, ...

10 Amazing Health Benefits of Walking

Trekking on the Camino in Spain, I learned an important lesson. I walked 125 km of the trail in 8 days, which means about 15 km per day. Some days it was 25 km, some days just 8. My body was weary, however my mind and spirit felt total joy and freedom! My skeleton and musculature were gently realigned each day. Even better, I enjoyed a time of peace, a chance to be with myself away from WiFi, computer, and cell phone. Yes, I was tired, however when I arrived in Santiago de Compostela and the Finisterre ocean at the end of the trip, I felt AWESOME! ...
