Forgiveness – A Gift You Give Yourself

Many of us try to feel loved and fill a void within by shopping, and buying gifts “things” for others.  At times this causes increased stress because it is not within the person’s budget! Imagine being able to give a priceless gift that will not require a trip to the mall, a shopping cart, a credit card or cash in hand. This priceless gift will benefit you just as much as or even more so than the receiver.  The priceless gift that I’m speaking of is the gift of forgiveness.

While the pleasure of exchanging material gifts is thrilling but short-lived, the freedom from forgiveness is everlasting.

Forgiveness can change your life.  It is one of the Treasures of the Tao.

Forgiveness does not mean you erase the past, or forget what has happened. It doesn’t even mean the other person will change their behavior — you cannot control that. All it means is that you are letting go of the anger and pain, and moving on to a better place.

“To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you.” – Lewis B. Smedes

Forgiveness allows you to access your personal power and choose releasing pain from your heart.  Forgiving others begins with being able to forgive yourself. Then you are able to forgive others, which in turn frees you.

Our Teacher Master Chen says:

“The goal of a human life is to stay in peace, tranquility and stillness. To preserve the root of peacefulness, that is the goal”.  Now, once you lose the goal, you go out chasing after emotions, and then get attached to emotions and end up feeling like a victim.  If you don’t forgive others you end up feeling you have become a victim.  When you become a victim you lose the fun and joy in life.  You lose it.  Now you have to ask yourself, are you willing to sacrifice your joy and the fun in your life by going after revenge and persecution?  Not to forgive?

So if you can see the goal of peacefulness, and your goal is to preserve this, then you know that you need to do.   It comes from within.  Forgiveness is really from your inner spirit, it is spiritual wisdom.  You have the power, strength and wisdom to forgive.

This in turn makes room in your heart for all the benefits of forgiveness such as; inner peace, love, harmony, compassion and unity.  These positive emotions flourish in the absence of pain and anger.

Life is all about choices….which do you choose now?

8 Things that Happen When You Finally Stop Drinking Diet Soda

Here’s why you won’t miss it!dietcoke


You’ve decided to give up diet soda—good idea! Maybe you weren’t hitting your weight-loss goals or couldn’t stomach that long list of ingredients anymore. Or perhaps you heard one too many times that it’s just not good for you.

Whatever the reason, eliminating diet soda from your diet will improve your health from head to toe. Research on diet soda is still in its infancy, but there’s enough out there to identify what you can look forward to when you put down the can and cool down with an unsweetened iced tea instead.

Migraines Disappear and Focus Sharpens
It turns out the headaches you expected from a diet-soda withdrawal didn’t materialize. And now that you’ve quit the stuff, you probably find yourself thinking clearly for the first time in a while. That’s because the chemicals that make up the artificial sweetener aspartame may have altered brain chemicals, nerve signals, and the brain’s reward system, which leads to headaches, anxiety, and insomnia, according to a review in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition. And a 2013 animal study found that rats that drank diet soda had damaged cells and nerve endings in the cerebellum—the part of the brain responsible for motor skills. (If you’re still drinking diet soda, here’s what’s happening in your body right now.)

Taste Buds Are More Sensitive
It’s not your imagination: Without your usual diet soda chaser, you may find that food has more flavor. It has subtlety. It’s more enjoyable. That’s because the artificial sweeteners in your diet soda overwhelmed your taste buds with an onslaught of sweetness. Aspartame ranks 200 hundreds times sweeter than table sugar. Splenda? 600 times. In fact, brain scans show that diet soda alters sweet receptors in the brain and prolongs sugar cravings rather than satisfies them. “We often see patients change snack choices when they give up diet soda,” says Heather Bainbridge, R.D., from Columbia University Medical Center Weight Control Center. “Rather than needing sugary treats or something really salty like pretzels and chips, they reach for an apple and a piece of cheese. And when they try diet soda again, they find it intolerably sweet.”

The Scale Finally Goes the Right Way
While you may have started drinking diet soda to facilitate weight loss, quitting it may actually do the trick. A recent nine-year study found older adults who drank diet soda continued to pack on belly fat. The study piggybacks on research that found each daily diet soda increases your chance of becoming obese in the next decade by 65 percent, and a study published in Diabetes Care that found drinking diet soft drinks daily was associated with an increase in metabolic syndrome—obesity, high blood-pressure, high triglycerides—which leads to heart disease and diabetes.

Bones Strengthen
Putting down the soda may be the best way to improve your bone strength and reduce your risk of fractures. One 2014 study found that each daily soda increased the chance of hip fracture by 14 percent for postmenopausal women. And another found that older women who drank cola had lower bone mineral density in their hips. The jury is still out on why soda has this effect, but the science pretty clearly suggests that a soda habit weakens your bones.

Your Attitude Toward Food Changes
Since diet sodas have no calories, people drinking them often feel it’s okay to indulge elsewhere, finds Bainbridge. Often, she sees her diet soda-drinking patients make poor food choices, like a burger and fries, a piece of cake, or potato chips because they think they can afford those extra calories. Plus, soda often accompanies unhealthy foods. “Sometimes, those poor choices are built-up habits,” she says. “You’re conditioned to have soda with chips, fries, or something sweet. When you eliminate the soft drink, you also break the junk food habit.”

You Handle Booze Better
It’s a fact: Diet soda gets you drunk faster. When you mix it with alcohol, your stomach empties out faster than if you used regular soda, causing a drastic increase in blood-alcohol concentrations, according to an Australian study in the American Journal of Medicine. And when you add caffeine, look out. Another study in the journal Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research found that bar patrons who mixed drinks with diet colas were intoxicated much more easily and frequently. Your best bet for a mixer? Club soda, which is naturally sugar- and calorie-free.

Your Fat Storage and Diabetes Risks Decrease
Our hormones may explain the great paradox of why people gain weight when they switch to diet soda. A study in Diabetes Care found that drinking two-thirds of a diet soda before eating primed the pancreas to release a lot of the fat-storing hormone insulin. When the pancreas is overworked from creating insulin to control blood-sugar levels, diabetes rears its ugly head. And a recent study in Japan found that middle-aged men who drank one or more diet sodas daily were much more likely to develop type 2 diabetes over a seven-year period.

Kidney Function Improves
Now that your body no longer has to make sense of the unpronounceable ingredients in diet soda, your kidneys can get back to clearing toxins, stabilizing blood pressure, and absorbing minerals. One study looked at 11 years of data and found that women who drank two or more servings of diet soda doubled their chances of declining kidney function.

What Is Your Health Worth To You??

Health is a term which represents the quality and balance of your mind, body & spirit.  All the parts which make the whole need to be addressed.

You ask how?, What does it mean?

The Ancient Master of Taoism Lao Tzu teaches:

 “The journey of 1,000 miles, begins with one step at a time”

So let us begin with baby steps, on your road to optimal health, naturally through the miracle of lifestyle changes.

Detoxificationstomach heart

Everyone is affected by toxins. It can be from the environment, the foods, the water, and even from toxic relationships.

Begin by cleaning the gastrointestinal system.  More than 70% of the immune system receptors are in “the gut”.  When the GI system is out of balance it manifests in many of the symptoms and diagnoses that we see daily– diabetes, hypertension, fibromyalgia, arthritis, chronic fatigue, irritable bowels, cancer and many others.

Through the Institute of Functional Medicine we follow the “5 Rs“:

1.  Remove — Remove stressors: get rid of things that negatively affect the environment of the GI tract including allergic foods and parasites or other bad bugs such as bacteria or yeast. This might involve using an allergy “elimination diet”.

2.  Replace — Replace digestive secretions: add back things like digestive enzymes, hydrochloric acid, and bile acids that are required for proper digestion and that may be compromised by diet, drugs, diseases, aging, or other factors.

3.  Reinoculate — Help beneficial bacteria flourish by ingesting probiotic foods or supplements that contain the so-called “good” GI bacteria such as bifidobacteria and lactobacillus species, and by consuming the high soluble fiber foods that good bugs like to eat, called “prebiotics.” Probiotics are beneficial microorganisms found in the gut that are also called “friendly bacteria.” Use of antibiotics kills both good and bad bacteria.

4.  Repair — Help the lining of the GI tract repair itself by supplying key nutrients that can often be in short supply in a disease state, such as zinc, antioxidants (e.g. vitamins A, C, and E), fish oil, and the amino acid glutamine.

5.  Rebalance — Pay attention to lifestyle choices – sleep, exercise and stress can all affect the GI tract.


Eliminate the most popular allergens: Dairy, wheat, gluten, simple sugars, artificial sweeteners.

Eat more vegetables, fruits and clean animal protein. Organics whenever possible and follow a protocol of proper nutraceuticals.

The Core Balance Diet book brings forth the study of nutrigenomics, which teaches how nutrients and lifestyle choices interact with genes and influence cellular activities.

This is why scientists say: “you are what you eat”.

Now there is increasing evidence that your feelings also release biochemicals that influence. So it’s also accurate to say: “you are what you think and feel”.

Stress Management

  1. Identify Sources of stress.

Prolonged stress may lead to exhaustion of your adrenal glands, which play a critical role     in helping you to deal with stress. Adrenal exhaustion becomes a vicious cycle that            includes depression, fatigue, feelings of anxiety, and lowered resistance to illness. It is in   your best interest to prevent adrenal exhaustion from occurring by developing healthy       stress-management techniques.

  1. Decide how to change the way that you handle it. 

You have a choice to handle your stress, or have the stress handle you.


Explore and find forms of exercise that motivate you.

Critical is to begin with stretches.  Next, look at different cardio programs like: walking, cycling, swimming might be some to consider.

Follow with toning and strengthening.

Qi Gong, Tai Chi, Yoga, and Pilates are some examples for combining the above.

Spirit Nutrition

Many people focus on feeding the body, while starving the spirit.

Connect with the belief in something greater than yourself, nurture this and you’ll have a better chance of staying healthy longer and healing faster if you become ill.

Use any tools that motivate you. Whether its through meditation, prayer, soft music, or connecting with nature. Feed your spirit.

If we could give every individual the right amount of nourishment and exercise, not too little and not too much, we will have found the safest way to health.”  …  Hippocrates Circa 400BC
