TIDBIT #1

“Just because your mind tells you that something is awful or evil or unplanned or otherwise negative doesn’t mean you have to agree. Just because other people say that something is hopeless or crazy or broken to pieces doesn’t mean it is. We decide what story to tell ourselves.” Ryan Holiday, Author- "The Obstacle Is the Way: The Timeless Art of Turning Adversity to Advantage" goodreads.com


TIDBIT #2

Recently the World Health Organization (WHO) issued a report ranking “vaccine hesitancy” as one of the top “Ten Threats to Global Health in 2019”, alongside air pollution and climate change; noncommunicable diseases; global influenza pandemic; antimicrobial resistance; and infectious diseases such as ebola, dengue fever and HIV. Throughout history, the greatest contributors to disease and early death in human populations have been poverty, poor sanitation and poor nutrition, yet infectious diseases with pharmaceutical solutions dominated this list. There was no mention of the major opioid addiction crisis crippling and killing tens of thousands of people in the U.S. and Europe, or the iatrogenic medical error epidemic that every year claims more than 750,000 lives in Europe and 250,000 lives in the U.S., where it is the third leading cause of death. The immediate mainstream media response to the WHO’s announcement was to focus on “vaccine hesitancy.” Since the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is the largest non-state funder of the WHO, having donated more than $2B in grants to the WHO since 1998, this money is earmarked for specific programs, such as vaccine purchase, delivery and promotion. The Gates Foundation significantly influences the setting of WHO’s program priorities. Learn more at: nvic.org

Diet Tip: Skip the ads on your TV! Fast-forward through commercials on your DVR. A University of California study found that images of high-calorie foods stimulate the brain's appetite control center, triggering hunger. health.com

Since its inception, Chiropractic has asserted that viruses and microbes don't threaten us all equally and that a healthy immune system easily repels most invaders. The immune system protects us from the flu, as well as any other infectious disease, and strives to get us well again when we do fall ill. Our immune system, like every other system in the body, is coordinated and controlled by the nervous system. Chiropractors are also aware of the importance of positive health life style practices (rest, drinking ample quantities of water, diet, exercise, proper diet, taking extra vitamins and minerals, and stress reduction approaches). All these factors can also positively influence the nervous system and immune response. So make sure your nerve system is free of interferences (subluxations), adopt a healthy lifestyle, and your immune system will stay strong! pr.com


TIDBIT #5

Goji berries are now widely available in many health food and specialty food stores. Used in Chinese medicine for over 6,000 years, goji berries are known for their antioxidant properties and supposedly boost your immune system, improve your brain function, increase your life expectancy and reduce your risk of heart disease and cancer. Full of nutrients, goji berries are a good source of vitamin A, vitamin C, iron and dietary fiber. livestrong.com
