“Gut dysfunction has been linked to virtually every disease and can
cause conditions like fatigue, depression, food sensitivities, chronic
pain, allergies and in my case, cancer.
The health of your gut is critical to the health of your body, which is why I’m excited to invite you to the Heal Your Gut Summit, airing free online January 18-25.

In Defense of Food: Michael Pollan

PBS has been hitting it out of the park lately with so many programs focusing on health. The latest one is called, In Defense of Food, featuring Michael Pollan. (Click on the title and it will take you to the video).

I swiped this off the PBS website to give you an idea what the documentary is about. After watching it I’m sure you won’t look at food the same way and hopefully it will make you a more savvy grocery shopper.

“Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” With that seven-word maxim, US-based journalist Michael Pollan distills a career’s worth of reporting into a prescription for reversing the damage being done to people’s health by today’s industrially driven Western diet. In Defense of Food debunks the daily media barrage of conflicting claims about nutrition. Traveling the globe and the supermarket aisles to illustrate the principles of his bestselling “eater’s manifesto,” Pollan offers a clear answer to one of the most confounding and urgent questions of our time: What should I eat to be healthy? ”


Pollan also wrote a book by the same title if you are interested.


Be well,


Knowledge is power, stay informed

Mike Vacanti: “Fitness Stuff Made for Us Normal People”

One of my friends posted a video by this guy, Mike Vacanti, whose into fitness. He’s twenty-something which isn’t all that unusual for a guy his age to enjoy spending time in the gym, lifting weights and then making a video about it. What is different is that this video is directed towards baby boomers. He stresses the importance of exercise, no matter what age you are. I was so impressed with Mike, I subscribed to his Twitter feed and You Tube channel.

This may come as a shock, but I need motivation just like you do. I enjoy exercising but I can get distracted by other obligations during the day and before I know it, all I want to do is put on my jammies and either 1. watch TV or 2. read a book. Before I know it, a week has gone by and I haven’t done anything to honor my body (yoga, dance, walk) and that’s not good.

So to honor the new year, I plan to watch more videos like Mike’s and keep myself motivated. How about you? Are you with me?

This first video talks about being patient with yourself; something we humans have problems with. We want results in minutes but our bodies don’t work that way.


The second video is the one I found on my friend’s Face Book page. Since I turned sixty a few months ago, I felt he was talking to me. I want to be independent for as long as I can and I refuse to end up in an assisted living place. I will do whatever it takes to keep myself healthy and mobile.

See what you think. Does he resonate with you?

Be well and get off your ass!
