Three Simple Words That Could Change Your Life!

(An Updated Reblog)

Why spend most of your life trying to change the emotional baggage that is ruining your life. Spending thousands of dollars on meds and on doctor’s who could maybe send their children to medical schools just based on your prescriptions and procedures alone!

Reading books on How To; seven steps to this or the ten steps to that; motivational tapes; special healthy drinks; weekends with gurus, and sometimes even charlatans and fakes. You see, your actions are only controlled by your conscious mind about 5% of the time. The remaining 95% of the time it is ‘like’ the subconscious that controls your life. And the subconscious does not always seem to cotton to all of the above.

The subconscious mind consists of those programmed habits that constantly and even unknowingly keep you going and do the things your conscious mind cannot do.

So what are the three simple words that could maybe change your life!?

Just Do It!!!

What!!! Are you a simpleton just kidding me?

Actually, even this won’t work unless you can rewrite or change the subconscious programs that really run your life. And many of these habits and programs are established during the first 7 to 9 years of your life. So in order to really change your life, you have to do some personal research of your own on how to update these damn programs!

And you have to change your lifestyle to boot! Yes! It’s could be about what you eat, drink, think, do, and may I add, “do do!”

Notes NOT From Your Primary Health Provider:

(Opinion…Opinion…Opinion based on personal experience)

I’ve only had two doctors who recognized a problem that was due to my medications: not an organ like my kidneys. I had indications of insufficient kidneys on several blood tests and the specialist I eventually went to immediately recognized that it may have been caused by the interaction of my statin drug and Tricor. He told me to stop Tricor; get a blood test; and see him in two weeks. When I saw him again, my blood work was normal and I have not had any problems since. And I didn’t have to see that specialist again!

He only knew of the possible interaction based on his own experiences. Another doctor would probably have not recognized the negative interaction. But now they should because it is well documented.

I have other such stories based on my experiences and those of other family members.

Doctor’s seem to treat high blood pressure with meds only. However, it may not necessarily be an illness. It could just be a treatable condition caused by lifestyle only. If you are 100 pounds overweight; are a couch potato; eat crap; drink sugary drinks; do not exercise; well, you are probably going to have higher blood pressure, don’t you think?

My resting blood pressure was on average 155/90 in 2014. And I was taking three meds to control it! So, I changed my lifestyle: lost over 30 pounds; watched what I ate, drank, though and did. It is now averaging about 125/77.

At my last doctor’s visit, he looked at my blood work and asked, ‘How did you do this?’

Biology is a significant factor but not the only factor. In my opinion, doctor’s should not just treat organs … No!

They should treat the whole body and mind!

    I’ll agree with “Just Do It” to try and make something happen. However, there are circumstances in one’s biological programming that doesn’t respond to Just Do It, and one has to put oneself in the hands of doctors with “toxic” medicines. For people who have faced crippling circumstances and came out walking, and people who have looked death in the face more than once, but managed to live, understand that miracles happen, but not always “out of the blue”, by pure faith, shear magic or just doing it.

        I was almost crippled from a very rare condition when I was 9 years old. I recovered after surgery and a lot of physical therapy. After that I raced motorcycles, I raced bicycles, I danced professionally, I lifted weights, I practiced karate and I did kick boxing. I was very strong and always in very good condition. Over the past ten years I’ve been through two cancers and had a stem cell transplant. I’m lucky to be alive. Biology isn’t always on your side.

      2. My post was not about physical conditions and biology. It was about mental health issues that meds, treatments and such do not always succeed in curing.

        If your parents constantly told you that you were worthless, would never amount to anything during the first 7 to 9 years; then the subconscious would run that program that you are a loser.

        Meds, treatments, ‘how to’ books are recognized by the conscious but not the subconscious.

        My wife was hospitalized for anorexia in 1954 before they truly knew what it was. She had shock treatment, meds galore, and doctor’s for sure. Two of her doctor’s were stalkers and one committed suicide. She still has the same feelings that led to her anorexia based on what her mother said to her when her younger brother was born.

        My daughter, Amy Barbera, had similar problems when she was a teen. We took her to the same hospital my wife was treated. One of her doctor’s was still there.

        They wanted to commit her but I refused. We chose a healthy life style and nutrition as the path to take. Amy is a beautiful inspirational singer and has no eating disorder issues at all. Just the opposite!

      4. If you read what I said in the post you should recognize that I did not allude to physical or biological issues. Crippling illnesses and diseases are a biological fact. Treatments are the major, if not the only, solutions in these cases.

    2. The rise and fall of the sneaker giant!

      Nike declined in the mid-single digits with the Jordan brand, lost a third of their sales. Under Armour was down about half, but Adidas basketball has grown by more than 40%.

      By the way, the Adidas slogan is ‘Just Shoe It!’ LOL

      No! TiS ‘Impossible is Nothing!’

    Too many people turn to meds when their thoughts are messed up, and the outcome can be terrible. Just look at the current transgender epidemic. And what’s so sad is that a lot of doctors and drug companies encourage it, knowing they’ll have life-long customers; and knowing also that if left alone, the vast majority of children will outgrow it…not all, but most.

    1. The American medical system is a joke. The FFA, AMA, hospital and most doctors are controlled by Big Pharma.

      And psychiatrist are even more clueless in my opinion. The number one cause of death in America is not cancer or
      heart disease. No! It is the American medical system.

      An estimated 300,000 die every year from prescribed meds. Add to that death due to hospitals, botched surgery, misdiagnosis and the complete lack of regard for the wonders of a healthy lifestyle.

      You don’t make money healing or reversing illnesses! You only make money prescribing drugs, procedures and referring your patients to another doctor who specializes in one area or on one particular organ.

  8. Awesome! Great job with the blood pressure. Whenever I was in hospital my blood pressure was 90/60 and the lowest I’ve had was 87/56, lol. I’m always interested in checking it whenever I’m hooked up to anything that measures it. At the time I was swimming a mile a day. Now my skin is too sensitive to chlorine 😠 but I’m lifting a lot of weights and doing pressups etc. I’m planning to add a pullup bar :D. You can do so much to boost metabolism and muscle tone with very little, it’s great. A good tactic I have for exercise motivation is to have the temperature a few degrees or more less than comfortable, then just exercise whenever I get cold. Keeps your metabolism high :).

    A holistic treatment approach should be the basis of every medical education!

    Although medical intervention can save lives, it must be remembered that any medical treatment also has a very high potential for damage. The patient and the doctor should be aware of this. Unfortunately this is often forgotten or played down.
    Taking a pill is easier than changing one’s behaviour, although this is usually the better and less dangerous way.

    Great blog post!

      Talked to a med student and he said his school now included some health studies.

      It is not necessarily easier to prescribe meds. It is in my opinion just more profitable.

    often our doctors look at us without seeing us. They are ready to give us drugs and other drugs but we are not being treated in the right way. I no longer trust doctors. I am young and they give me 5 pills a day for some medical conditions. But none of them have ever asked me how I really am. Even my psychologist doesn’t really listen. Everyone works and thinks they are good in their profession ms if the pstologies are still present it is the fault of the drugs and of them who gave them to me. My stomach has been wracked by these drugs. My own life now depends on drugs and I can’t even travel and stay out of the house for a whole month. They made my life a drug addiction. And they have neither cured nor healed me. I have not done many things in my life because I was afraid of making others suffer but in the end I suffered and this malaise is the result of my altruism. I understand your psrole but now I feel stuck. 😣

      You are right about doctor’s and meds!
      I have several posts on the subject!

      Dropped all but one doctor, most of my meds and cut the remaining meds 3 in half.

      They know very little about the drugs they prescribe; there effects and possible negative interactions!
