The Healthy Way! The 60 Day Turnaround Way! The following is not for the weak of heart… you will feel attacked if not empowered. Your choice, be attacked or be empowered. PERIOD.
1. Throw out the Sugar Now
It is easy to get caught up in the sugar. I don’t care what it is, but if you are ready, here on January 4th, to take the right steps, then you need to prove to yourself that you are in charge. Those who read this and don’t act, have only proven one thing. You do NOT control your addiction. You can rationalize it away… “It cost money, I’ll be done with it soon, but my kids love it, I haven’t had that much anyways” are all stories told in order to be consistent in weakness.
I use harsh reality because you need to make a harsh choice if you are serious about getting things right in 2016. There is no time to waste.
2. Become Addicted to the IDEA of working out
I put this one more gently, because life is busy, convenience is king, and you might fail three to five times before getting it right. So you need to begin to see yourself as someone who loves working out, no matter how much you hate it now. If you can begin to perceive that you are the workout lady, walking the stores at 4pm with your kids, in your workout gear, because you have been planning on working out all day, even if you never did… at least you are one step closer.
The IDEA needs to be one that you nurture, then we can work hard to be sure you follow through.
3. Be at peace
If there is one critical component of health that impacts all others, it is stress. Diets fail because of stress, workout routines fail because of stress, and nervous systems are directly impacted by stress. Think about this. Your brain controls your immune system, which keeps cancer at bay, and provides an opportunity for you to be a functioning machine! All stress directly impacts your nervous system, because it directly impacts your brain, the key to your nervous system. Don’t stress!
4. Work on your posture
Holistic, corrective chiropractic care is responsible for miracles. Our office sees absolute miracles all the time. Why? Because as number three states above, your brain controls it all, but it needs your spine to do it. Your posture directly impacts how well information flows from your brain to your body. Your posture is the window to the body for the brain. Get it straight, and realize that it doesn’t happen over night. Get a foam roller and stretch into extension. Find a corrective chiropractor, ditch the sit down desk for a brand new stand up one! Life is waiting for you to take charge!
5. Control Addictions
One addiction might be worse than another, but all addiction can lead to more. Meaning. Even though Dr. Mercola posted that a coffee a day can be healthy… a caffeine rich coffee a day can guarantee addiction. Pull back and drink water processed decaf for a few days, to be sure you are not addicted. Do a Suero Viv Cleanse once and awhile, and get off of everything for three days. Addiction can be bad, really bad. We are all programmed to become addicted to something or another, fight it.
6. Eat More Vegetables
Dr. Joel Fuhrman has done a great job in underscoring the importance of vegetable nutrition. So much as to a fault in my eyes, but at least the basis of understanding is there when you read through his material. Vegetables are more important than fruit, and both are more important than anything else.
To quantify that statement really takes a full workshop, but simply put. The basic functions of your body have a chance at optimal function when you are consuming high levels of vegetable nutrition.
It is this reason that I have taught of the value of Juice Plus as a supplement for so many years now, and it hasn’t changed. My goal is to have everyone eating as close to 13 servings of fruit (3 servings) and vegetables (10 servings) a day, where a serving would be an open handful.
7. Get God
Last and surely the most important from a standpoint of health. Dig into God’s value added to your life. Look to put trust in Him as the only purpose or reason for life. When you get this, all else becomes easier to handle. God surely will put peace in, and when you have confidence in Hi design for your life, taking control of addiction will become easy.

Thankful for your concern over health, and your willingness to take necessary steps!
Be well and Be blessed! – Dr. E
