1. A video clip from my talk last week…
Thanks to all that attended my talk last Thursday. We had roughly 115 people in attendance. It was good to be in front of a live crowd again. There is SO MUCH to talk about these days, so it was hard to distill it down to one hour. Here is one of the most important concepts/ideas/lessons from that night. It’s about how people, even in the light of new evidence, will not (or cannot) see things any differently because of their strongly held philosophies, beliefs, and paradigms. It’s called the Semmelweis Reflex (or Semmelweis Effect). Watch the 2 ½ -minute video below and/or read about it on Wikipedia by clicking here.
2. My daily supplements…
I am often asked what I take daily. It can vary from time to time, but my daily core supplements are the following…
Omega Sufficiency (Fish Oil) by Innate Choice – 4 capsules
Catalyn (Whole Food Multivitamin) by Standard Process – 3 tablets
Vitamin C 1000 by Ecological Formulas – 2 capsules
Curcumin Phytosome by Thorne – 2 capsules (1,000 mg)
Zinc – 1 tablet (50 mg)
CALM magnesium gummies by Natural Vitality – 4 gummies
Liquid Vitamin D3 with K2 by Ortho Molecular Products – 5 drops (5000 I.U.)
I do add certain things if feeling run down, and may add things if I have any injuries, but these are my basics. I do not take the above-listed supplements for any particular condition, but to provide me with sufficiency so that my body gets what it may not get through my diet. And (like an old man) I use a vitamin organizer. Anything that makes a process easier keeps me more consistent. So, on Sundays, I fill each day with the supplements for that day (Ok… ok… Lana usually does it). I’m attaching a pic so you can see the vitamin organizer… AND you can see that I missed Tuesday. Oops! I usually don’t miss, but wanted you to also see that it can happen, and it’s really not that big of a deal.
3. Tree sculpture I saw this week that I loved…
Check out this sculpture done by Simon O’Rourke, an artist working out of North Whales. It was formerly the tallest tree in Whales, but was damaged in a storm. You can read more about it and see more amazing photos by clicking here. Here is a description of the sculpture from that article… “Titled Giant Hand of Vyrnwy, the piece measures 50 feet tall and transforms in front of your eyes. The base of the sculpture is a standard tree; but as you gaze upward, it begins to shed its bark and eventually becomes the smooth skin of the arm and ends with the gentle creases found in the palm and fingers. This transition, between rough and smooth, has a folkloric quality—as if a giant is trying to make its way onto Earth.” SUPER cool!!! (Thanks, Uncle Bim for sharing!)
