What does the WHO announcement really mean?

The WHO (World Health Organization) recently announced it’s recommendation for everyone to reduce consumption of processed meat and red meat.  Of course media outlets are running alarmist headlines like “Processed meat causing cancer?” This is sensationalism and of course it’s getting ratings. The problem is, very few people are actually reading the published study (big surprise). So for those of you who would like, I have the original linked here. Before we get into this, let me state that I am glad we are talking about reducing the consumption of processed meats. I think we can all get behind that. I’m all for eating vegetables in mass quantities and by no means is this article intended to take a PRO-MEAT stance. There is no such thing. I will soon be a responsible Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner and I do not personally or professionally believe there is one diet for everyone. I also cannot resist the temptation to poke fun at people that do. But let’s talk about this study only and in my opinion, it boils down to irresponsible reporting. Every one of you reading this right now is on a journey to manage your own health for the long-term and for the better while relying on major media outlets to gather relevant news and condense it into a clear story. I thank you for taking your health into your hands. The people drawing these conclusions after the WHO announcement done so based on sensational headlines with little investigation of the actual data alone. There are two major problems: 1: We obviously have a misunderstanding of what science is all about....

5 Websites You Need To Visit

Tweet Share Quick post today but I find myself recommending these websites over and over again. These people do great work and they deserve your click right now. 1. Fitforreallife.com Kate Galliett set up a full 12-week step-by-step program to help eliminate pain and manage stressors from all angles once and for all. Sound familiar? I created Fit for Real Life because I’m fascinated by all the things that can make us better humans; from your gut (stomach health) to your gut (that deep gnawing thing that can drive you forward AND make you stop dead in your tracks). I seek out & happily share those things with you here so that you can create a truly amazing life for yourself. And in case you want to know a bit more about me, here it is in a 20-second run-down: Did I mention I’m a bit of a 21st century hippie? Cuz, full disclosure: I am. My spirit animal is an owl. I adore beautiful language & brutal honesty. In my work as a fitness pro, I find people’s inefficiencies & then help them set new paths for their body, mind, and soul. I do gymnastics. It is the most soul-baring time in my week. Coffee is my thing. So is good conversation.   2. 30kview.com Jason Seib is on fire right now.

Why is it good to climb a tree?

Why is it good to climb a tree?

5 REASONS TO CLIMB A TREE 1. The Carry Over The development of dynamic and multi-dimensional “hanging” strength which translates to many functional daily activities (carrying loads, lifting from ground, gripping). 2. Shoulder Strength While climbing, you develop the shoulder muscles that help combat postural issues (rounded forward shoulders and flexed cervical spine). 3. The development of callus on ALL PARTS of your hand. Many do not recognize the underdevelopment of callus on hands and feet as a negative issue but if you are only calloused in certain areas and not others, the weak tissue creates imbalance and asymmetry resulting in fragility, pain and ripping. 4. Vitamin D and earth electric ions. We get nutrients from the earth and sun. The sun gives us vitamin D which gives us energy (lack of Vit D results in depression and fatigue) and the earth electrons fuel our immune system as they have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects on the body. This study suggests that “earthing” practices:  “may be a simple, natural, and yet profoundly effective environmental strategy against chronic stress, ANS dysfunction, inflammation, pain, poor sleep, disturbed HRV, hypercoagulable blood, and many common health disorders, including cardiovascular disease. The research done to date supports the concept that grounding or earthing the human body may be an essential element in the health equation along with sunshine, clean air and water, nutritious food, and physical activity.”   For more information on how you can improve your movement health, read THE FITNESS...
