Lifestyle Medicine/ RECIPES FOR BONES

Consider getting Dr. McDougall's book for optimum healthful eating. It is called, "The Starch Solution." Dr. McDougall's Health & Medical Center www.drmcdougall.com About Dr. McDougall; Dr. John McDougalls Story; ... Dr. McDougalls Health and Medical Center PO Box 14039 Santa Rosa, CA 95402. Phone: 1-800-941-7111 Uchee Pines Institute is a grand place to go, learn and experience Lifestyle Medicine. When I was there in the 70's, Dr. Calvin Thrash (Internist) and his wife, Dr. Agatha Thrash, (Pathologist)worked with the individuals that came there to gain a better quality of life. Consider it, if you need a live in program for a period of time.

Wildwood Lifestyle Center and Hospital is another place I would recommend for learning optimum health principles.

Dr. Lee died in October but his associates will continue to publish information on natural hormone replacement therapy.

<FONT size=3><FONT color=#000000><FONT face="Times New Roman">Background: Osteoporosis and related fractures will be growing<SUP> </SUP>public health problems as the population ages.

<P><FONT size=3><FONT color=#000000><FONT face="Times New Roman">Objective: We investigated associations between dietary components<SUP> </SUP>contributing to an alkaline environment (dietary potassium,<SUP> </SUP>magnesium, and fruit and vegetables) and bone mineral density<SUP> </SUP>(BMD) in elderly subjects.<SUP> </SUP></FONT></FONT></FONT></P>
<P><FONT size=3><FONT color=#000000><FONT face="Times New Roman">Design: Dietary intake measures were associated with both cross-sectional<SUP> </SUP>(baseline) and 4-y longitudinal change in BMD among surviving<SUP> </SUP>members of the original cohort of the Framingham Heart Study.<SUP> </SUP>Dietary and supplement intakes were assessed by food-frequency<SUP> </SUP>questionnaire, and BMD was measured at 3 hip sites and 1 forearm<SUP> </SUP>site.<SUP> </SUP></FONT></FONT></FONT></P>
<P><FONT size=3><FONT color=#000000><FONT face="Times New Roman">Results: Greater potassium intake was significantly associated<SUP> </SUP>with greater BMD at all 4 sites for men and at 3 sites for women<SUP> </SUP>(P &lt; 0.05).

Fruit and vegetable intake was associated with BMD<SUP> </SUP>at 3 sites for men and 2 for women. Greater intakes of potassium<SUP> </SUP>and magnesium were also each associated with less decline in<SUP> </SUP>BMD at 2 hip sites, and greater fruit and vegetable intake was<SUP> </SUP>associated with less decline at 1 hip site, in men.

~Today, give a stranger one of my smiles. It might be the only sunshine he sees all day.

~The people on our planet are not standing in a line single file. Look closely, everyone is really standing in a circle, holding hands. Whatever I give to the person standing next to me, it eventually comes back to me.

~Friends are like a garden, they require regular care.

~A friend is a person who knows all about you but likes you anyway.

~Instead of waiting for someone to bring me flowers, why not gather my own bouquet!

~When I remember how hard it is to change myself, I begin to understand what little chance I have of changing others.

~Carrying a grudge is like a run in a stocking- it can only get worse. Forgiveness is the answer.

~Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye!

~To change everything simply change your attitude.

~I can't do much about my appearance but I have total control over the person I become.

~Almost all of our unhappiness is a result of comparing ourselves to others.

~True wealth is what you are, not what you have.

~No one is guaranteed happiness. Life just gives us time and space. It's up to us to fill it with Joy and Meaning!

~Dreams come true for those who work while they dream!

~If you're doing your best you won't have time for failure.

~No failure is ever final- nor any success. Time moves on.

~When fate shuts a door, come in through the window!

Where there's no risk, there's no reward!

Try riding a bull..........!

               I repeat, these are the components that make up a good lifestyle program.  I do all of them daily!
 
~Drink water!

When doing Hormones or any prescription medication you need to drink alot of water to flush your system. Each morning, I drink 4 cups of water, with lemon or lime. Mid-morning 2 more cups of water. Mid-afternoon one cup of water and then with my before 6 PM meal, a cup of Grape juice or Cranberry juice. We must keep ourselves well hydrated to process concentrates!

 
~Breath with "JOY"
 
~Eat vegetables, fruits, nuts, grains and root vegetables; along with beans, seeds, and grains as your food!
 
~Exercise
 
~Sunshine (I bathe through a U.V. protected window daily; five minutes at a time)
 
~Temperance or self-control in what you eat and how much you eat.  This also includes every avenue of your senses:
               *Eyes- What you watch. 
               *Ears - What you listen to.
               *Nose- What you smell.
                Etc.,
 
~Rest is extremely important.  Schedule mini-vacations when you're under stress. Pat your dog's head, smell a rose, lay out and look up at the stars.  We need 8 to 10 hours of sleep a night to synthesis information so it is properly reformatted in our brain's hard  drives.  To much stimulus can create an inbalance in the mind and the body.
 
~Trust in the ALMIGHTY!  Each of us were created for a purpose.  Never give up! Push love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, meekness and self-control.
 
 
 
 

See the world with friends...Try balloning!
