Your Health, Their Profit

Standard

Priceless Possession

You ever notice that we get bombarded about drugs promising to lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol, or temporarily overcome erectile dysfunction.

We are taught that drugs are the way to make things better when in fact many times they harm our bodies to “fix” symptoms. Take a moment one day to just sit down and watch commercials. When you see any on drugs turn up the volume and listen to the list of side effects – sometimes as severe as damage to heart, liver, or kidneys.

I was put on a drug to help my asthma. Thankfully I stopped using it after my wheezing cleared. Recently I saw a commercial about that same drug and the quiet talk stated that it “increases asthma related death” WHY WAS I PRESCRIBED A DRUG THAT WOULD INCREASE MY CHANCES OF DYING FROM WHAT IT WAS TRYING TO FIX?

I had another incident of having severe bronchitis. I went to my pulmonologist who gave me 3 prescriptions. At the time I also just started with Isotonix OPC-3. Within 2 weeks I could stop all my meds as my chest cleared completely. At my follow up my doctor was most impressed with how well I improved. I use OPC-3 every morning on an empty stomach and now don’t have any allergy or asthma issues! My mom’s arthritic swelling has gone down!

The other commercials that bother me are for liquid meals. Instead of promoting nutrient filled meals, companies would prefer that we, the consumers, drink a highly processed meal as opposed to an actual meal. Why do we let these companies program us?

The most ironic part is that organic nutrient rich pet food is a growing trend. One commercial even stated that the pet is “one of the family”… so why do many parents feel it is ok to regularly feed children low nutrient fast food and sugar rich foods. Basically then with this line of thinking, a pet is more important than a child?

Considering these facts

  • “64-69% of the Americans take supplements”
  • “nearly half the world’s population suffers from Vitamin D deficiency”
  • “liposuction is now the leading form of plastic surgery in the United States”
  • “35.3% of Americans are overweight” (I’m tired of hearing about diabetes and obesity)

Why don’t we as a people insist on change?

As a nutraMetrix Consultant I talk with health professionals about implementing customized wellness programs. A few I have spoken to have told me that they “don’t believe in supplements” or “there is no proof that these work”.

Isotonix supplements are the same pressure as your bodily fluids. These absorb into your body within 5 minutes of ingestion. NutraMetrix has DNA analysis which can pin point exactly what you as a patient gets a wellness regimen specific for you. We have lifestyle weight loss programs with TLS consultants who work within the practice so that the progression is overseen by a doctor.

Contact your your doctor and those of your loved ones and connect them with NutraMetrix Consultants in your area. If you don’t know any NutraMetrix Consultants contact me, I’ll get one to contact you. Or if you are interested in learning more about NutraMetrix or TLS (Transition Lifestyles) contact me.

Wouldn’t you prefer that your neighborhood health professional bring health and wellness to the community? Or would you rather drug companies gain from your dis-ease?

A Touch of Fear

A Touch of Fear

Did you ever notice when you are about to launch something new especially if it was your idea there is fear? It doesn’t matter if you truly believe that you are doing something to make the world a better place… well at least your community. It doesn’t matter that you can see the end result.  Does it matter that I don’t wear the right color for the video? Does it matter that I get so passionate that my words are like race horses after the start? It seems like the only thing in my mind is “I don’t know what to do” THIS ISN’T EVEN TRUE!

I have a vision to Put Health Back in Healthcare utilizing a network marketing company that helps entrepreneurs focus on their passion while benefiting licensed health professionals. I am looking to change network marketing’s focus from “getting rich” to helping the community reach true health.

Being that there are not many people judging from Google+, Facebook, and LinkedIn who have a larger vision with their opportunity than “I can get paid”. When I started this project I was afraid that my idea would be stolen until I received an email from Seth Godin with an article about wanting people to steal ideas. This put some of my thoughts at ease. Then I started talking to entrepreneurs, business owners, health professionals and local activists. At this time I got to see my idea blossom with every telling, explaining that I had. I have a clear picture of the vision.

Now is time for the deliverance and a part of me is terrified as this will mostly take place online. I feel strange talking to a camera as I prefer talking to an audience. I’ve had the experience of being a door to door sales person, teaching classes of 12+ and speaking in front of 1700 people. Over the past few months I’ve just started talking to the camera and most of the time I’m not looking at it as on the phone I end up talking to my face. *smiling*

I’ve been listening to “The Icarus Deception: How High Will You Fly” by Seth Godin every day for the past couple weeks. I recommend this book if you are inspired to do something new, but don’t think you can or should. I’ve decided that I truly want to make a difference at least to my community.

 

PUT HEALTH BACK IN HEALTHCARE

This is my baby. I will post a video explaining what it is I look to accomplish with health care. At that time I will also post a short blog with who I’m looking for, what the financial obligation is, and which health professionals are accepted. I’m tired of network marketing companies to tell me not to do things that are not duplicatible… just because I’m the first doesn’t mean that a system isn’t duplicatible.

I have decided to be a linchpin even though I feel a touch of fear. I am looking for others who have the courage to do the same while building their community’s health and well being.

 

ALL the Best and Many Blessings!
