5 Point Friday September 16th 2016

I hope your week finds you strong and moving towards better health, productivity, and fitness!

1)Thought of Day:

Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darknesses of other people.

Carl Jung

2)Health News:

Epigenetic studies have begun to show our genetic code doesn’t fix our fate.   Food, chemicals, hormones, stress, and a host of external factors trigger variable changes in how our genes behave.  This is good news!  Change your diet–change your disease…

Keep an eye out for a podcast I just recorded on this very topic!

3)What I’m Reading:  

Vagabonding:  An Uncommon Guide to the Art of Long-Term World Travel–Rolf Potts

Travel is education.  Part travel tipster part travel philosopher, Rolf Potts taught me the value of slowing down and enjoying travel.  Rolf teaches the value of getting lost, sharing with and exploring other cultures and lands.  If you are interested in long term travel…check this one out!

4)What I’m listening to:  

The Graveyard Book –Audio Book by Neil Gaiman.  I have enjoyed sharing this entertaining audio book with my daughters during our daily commute.  Raised in a grave yard, raised by ghosts, this colorful, full cast performance follows the life of a little boy as he grows up–both entertaining and endearing.  Well worth a listen.

5)Health Nugget:

Do your joints hurt?  Did you know a high sugar diet = inflammatory diet?   Eat less sugar and experience less joint pain.  This dietary changes also tends to improve other inflammatory diseases like diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, colitis, tendonitis, etc.

    High sugar =inflammatory diet ~ hmmm, didn’t know that! Another reason to find a way to conquer my addiction. Went several months on less than 5 grams of added sugar/day. All it took was one poor decision and I’m still struggling to get back.
    Where can your podcasts be found doctor?
