A Few Inspirational Stories

My son and I just got back from seeing a spectacular performance at the Sarasota Circus.  We saw trapeze artists, jugglers, strong men, and even a couple that could change outfits under a towel in about 2 seconds flat.  It was AMAZING!   Every year I am blown away by the incredible display of talent they have and I always leave inspired. This year however, I was inspired for a different reason- I saw two performers make mistakes and try their trick again.  Odd thing to be...

How Can They Play Through All The Pain??

As I was thinking about the big game tonight I was reminded of a former client of mine who passed away last spring.  His name was Bill Cox and prior to going to work full time for the US Government, he played 3 seasons of professional football for the Washington Redskins in the 1950's.
Bill used to tell me stories about what it was like to play back in the "leather helmet" days. He told me about fractured skulls, dislocated shoulders, severely...

Harvard Researchers Discover How Food Affects Mood

Often I'm asked about my diet and what I eat to keep myself so healthy.  Having been a cancer patient and an obese kid, diet and nutrition have not only been important topics of professional study, but of personal study as well. What I've been doing over the last few years is experimenting with various types of omission diets. These are diets where you omit one type of food and see how your body reacts.  Over the years I've found foods that I could clearly feel (sometimes...

Another Pharmaceutical Company Buys Itself Out Of Trouble…

As I was preparing to write this newsletter today, a story from the Washington Post popped up on my news feed. The headline was alarming and the subject matter sickened me to read.  It is yet another example of pharmaceutical companies colluding with government officials for selfish gain. Here's a short synopsis: Most of us are aware of the opiod epidemic in America.  These drugs have claimed the lives of over 197,000 people since the year 2000 and countless others have become severely addicted to them. The proverbial "pill...
