Three Principles For A Healthy And Fit Life

My path has always unintentionally gone against the mainstream and its principles. I always find heat and confrontation that I don’t seek because it is the nature of opposing the status-quo when challenging its fallacies. I am at peace with that fact and accept what comes. In return, I enjoy great health, freedom from disease, freedom from medications, fullness of energy, optimism, a lucid mind, and a body capable of performing at levels that make others wonder why they can’t keep up. The principles that I follow are part of my life because I have tested them and they have proven themselves, not because somebody told me that they were undeniable truths to which I should adhere.

Should Exercise Be Sport – Really?

Frankly, I have no idea what this means, not at least in true specificity. Granted, arguments can be made on subjective perspectives, but they only beget emotional hollow exchanges and don’t address the question.

Yes Folks, I’m Human

Baah-haa-haa! Was my reaction to the commotion created by the post “A Mermaid or A Whale Exposed.” I received emails categorizing me as insensitive and misogynistic, many unfriended me on Facebook, and many opted-out my mailing list.

Just as I was expecting.

I knew exactly what I getting into as soon as I finished writing my post. I knew it would test the thickness of my skin and my ability to keep a cool demeanor. It is the price for exposing politically incorrect or taboo topics. I touched a nerve in a subject where we – health professionals – are supposed to be huggy-touchy and dare not say what is boiling inside us.

Denial and Fear Disguised as Self-Esteem

I’m exposing the nauseating, butchered version of the “Mermaid or a Whale” post for the banal drivel it truly is. It is not that I like pouring salt on the wound, but it is disconcerting to see how something so flawed could be so blindly cheered. Hey, we once thought lynching witches was correct!
