"There is a belief that you have to choose between what is good for you and what is fun for you. we are saying you can have both. You can have more fun, have better sex, sleep deeper, enjoy your food more, and not have all those aches and pains." Dr Dean Ornish.
Changing the world - One person at a time.
Dean Ornish is one of those medical doctors who has been classed as one of the greatest medical pioneers in the world and he has become particularly well known for demonstrating that food and lifestyle DO matter.
In his work to slow disease, and importantly to turn on healing and reverse disease there is alot of research showing that if people feel better, they will continue doing what they do. Take a pill, feel like "crap" and the most common thing is to forget to take the pill. The more changes(improvements) that are made to diet and lifestyle and with the resulting change in how a person feels - more energy, more clarity, more connection with themselves and others - then the more likely these people are to stay with what they are doing.
Taking a pill/drug for some health problem - the problem may be dealt with to a degree, but it often doesn't make the person "feel better" and this is the big difference. Its about people living BETTER, not just living longer and I feel this is the key.
Imagine angina reversed or decreased in a few weeks, or after a year, severely blocked arteries measurably less blocked, PSA levels dropping. The work he does shows improvements in virtually every way they can measure it.
The work that Dr Ornish does ties in well with some study I am doing presently which is all about Natural Oncology - that is of course, cancer and various natural approaches to this all too common illness.
STRESS!!!!!!! STRESS!!!!!!! STRESS!!!!!!!
Stress, we all know it is not a good thing when we are stressed to long or too often. But what we now know is some of the additional aspects of stress effects on our body and the mechanisms within that result in higher cancer rates. Yes, stress and our body's response to it can have a marked impression on whether or not the cancer genes in your body start to work against you.
Simply put, more stress - (and important in the equation is our perception of the level of stress) - coupled with pessimism creates significant biological changes that open the door to cancers of all types.
In part stress is not simply what happens to you, it is about how you deal with it. The tools we have to manage stress whether it is meditation, yoga or some other method will determine the final outcome.
This is why both diet AND lifestyle are targets and as Dr. Dean Ornish says: "It is a radically simple idea that when you eat healthier, when you love more, when you manage stress better, when you exercise moderately, and when you don’t smoke, you are happier and your life is more fun".
The four elements of life that are focused on are:
- What you eat
- How much activity you have
- How you respond to stress
- How much love and support you have
How stressful could it be to run the USA?
Bill Clinton had some serious health problems and in 2004 had a quadruple bypass and then a few years later needed a couple of stents placed to help blood flow through one of his coronary arteries that had become blocked - AGAIN!
It took some major surgery and a few other things to finally get him to understand that his poor eating habits and sedentary lifestyle had ruined his health.
It was after this that he finally took advice directly from Dr Ornish and the result was he lost a considerable amount of weight and got onto the path of a happier and healthier life.
The 6-foot-2 Bill Clinton said his vegan diet is responsible for his 30-pound weight loss and his boundless energy. He said eliminating animal protein from his diet was surprisingly easy.
“His doctor told him that his heart today is much younger than it was even 10 years ago,” said Bill's daughter, Chelsea Clinton. "He’s probably the world’s most famous vegan. He walks four times a week diligently wherever he is in the world."
I will be offering more insights over the next period - lifestyle, diets etc. My focus will be on prevention and treatment of degenerative diseases including cancers.
So I hope you stay with us, and don't forget - if you have a question about something specific let us know, we are here to help.

Products Highlights from www.maximumwellbeing.com
Many of you will recall that we offer our services during the Summer break at the Summer Festival in Whitianga.
This year we had the opportunity to meet and spend time with Catherine and Henri who have developed a really exceptional range of Healing remedies under the brand Balanced Energy.
Balanced Energy healing Essences are produced by combining various flowers, gems and crystals in a process similar to that used many years ago by Dr Edward Bach.
We are excited to offer these "Essences" to you as a way to enhance your health and wellbeing, whatever path you may be on.
As the name suggests, these Essences will allow for a more complete balance of body and mind. To give you an example of the potency of these remedies I will relate the experience Andy herself had ........ Henri applied just a drop of one of their products on to Andy's hand, another on her elbow and a third drop upon her shoulder - by the time he placed the remedy on her shoulder Andy experienced a rush of energy up her arm and through her body which then resulted in an immediate release that saw her in tears - WOW, Powerful stuff!
A unique part of using these products is the way they can be selected - Henri has spent many months(years) creating a series of Mandala. Each mandala resonates with one of the Essences and simply by browsing over the 6 Mandala there will be one that you may be drawn to - this will be the correct remedy for you to use at this time, very simple and amazingly accurate.
