Bruce’s Broken Foot Gets Instantly Healed

On March 30th, 2019 myself and a few friends were setting up for our weekly Siesta Beach Prayer Circle gathering at the public beach's north pavilion.  While I was busy organizing our free gift table, a young man named Bruce came by on crutches.  When my friend Sam saw Bruce, he approached him and asked him what happened. Bruce told Sam that he fractured his foot a few days earlier and that it was too painful to walk on.  Sam asked Bruce if we could pray...

Steve Gillenwater’s Experience Working With Me To Help His Hips and Shoulders

Steve's Gillenwater’s body has been through a lot.  In 1984 when Steve was 23 years old, he was in a dirt bike accident that literally snapped the head of his femur off.  After 3 attempts to try and save it, Steve had to have a hip replacement.  He has had 2 more hip surgeries since.  Due to the massive amount of muscle atrophy, plus the compensation patterns he developed, over the years Steve has not only had chronic hip pain,...

3 Lessons Learned While Rehabbing

1. It’s A LOT of work to rehab your body and there is no easy way to do it. Whether you are dealing with an injury that happened because of a sudden forceful event like the one I’ve described, or whether you’re dealing with an injury that has progressively gotten worse over time, this applies to you. Early on I made mental agreement with the idea that I was going to be “on call” 24-7 doing exercises and stretches, using topicals, taking supplements and doing everything I...

Nearly Half the People Who Use This Ditch Their Meds..

I came across a few articles recently that I felt would be great to share with you. The first one was kind of a shocker.  In a good way.  It describes a survey that was done on 2400 people who regularly consume a plant extract called Cannabidiol (CBD).  Most of the users reported that they used it primarily for relief of pain, anxiety, depression or insomnia.  Amazingly, 80 percent said it was "very or extremely effective" and 42% reported that they no longer needed their traditional...

Brain Power Measurably Increases When You Do This

Here in paradise (a.k.a. Sarasota), we've had a cold (for us), rainy and very overcast day.  The silver lining is that it truly was a perfect day for staying indoors and catching up on "stuff." My day included some of that.  Some tidying up, some reading, and eventually a trip to the gym for a full on workout, for which I was somewhat overdue. Ahh, it felt so good.  I started by doing long stride walks on the treadmill to open up my hips, my spine and...

This Will Help Move You Closer to Where You Want to Be

Last night I did something fun.  Not fun in the "traditional sense" of the word, but something fun for the part of me that loves to dream exciting dreams, go on adventures, and experience newness in all areas of my life on a consistent basis. Last night I sat down and left my mind completely open to ideas of what I'd like to see happen in my life in 2019.  Any and every exciting and compelling idea was quickly written down and prayed over.  I got motivated...

Want to Wake Up Excited Every Day? This Helps…

I sure do love this time of year, don't you? We're coming off of some beautiful holidays where we've celebrated some amazing miracles, and now we get to count down to the beginning of a new year.  So fun! Being that we are less than 36 hours from 2019, I would be remiss not to say something about New Years Resolutions.   Studies show that health related goals often top peoples list, and this year it should be no different. The act of making a resolution or a goal can change...

Can 70 Really Be the New 40?

The other day I was at the gym and I happened to catch a few minutes of a news story on The Today Show.  It was fitting that I saw it while doing fitness training because the story was about exercise. The anchors were discussing a new study that showed that people in their 70's who have exercised regularly for decades have the heart, lung and muscle health of people in their 40's.  How cool is that?! Check out this article written about the study-  Read more
