Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)

I know this is short notice but my good friend, Dr. Sally Boyd, is visiting from Hawaii to spend time with me during my medical leave. She is available to schedule for NLP sessions for the week of October 24th. I am at home and do not have the official description of NLP so I will give you my impression. If “health is defined as freedom from limitations” often our own thoughts/fears/emotions limit us from achieving our higher goals. What NLP does is remove those old patterns and replace them with new patterns to achieve our goals. She is charging $100 a session and it is well worth it when you find you self being stuck. We have used it to remove simple phobias to long standing reactive patterns from childhood. She is a genius at this and would highly recommend it. Just call the office if you would like to schedule.

Flu Season

As they are advertising your flu shots I just want to remind everyone that this is NOT the way to protect your immune system. There may be good reasons for some people but not very many. This is NOT good science. It has become exceedingly important to me that everyone around me remains well as my immune system is struggling. So please remember that the following habits really help:

1. Plenty of sleep: when not sleeping enough for whatever reasons then your immune system is compromised.
2. Reduce sugar content: Sugar in any form reduces your white blood cell count for 4 hours.
3. Of course wash your hands, especially before eating.
4. Remain hydrated
5. Eat at least 2 cups of vegetables per day
6. Move your body: get at least 5000 steps/day OR 1/2 hour of aerobic activity

If you do get sick hit it hard: for adults 100,000 IU of vitamin D one time only (maximum of 3x/year) and 150,000 IU of vitamin A for 7-10 days. This is for 150 pound adult and you can change those doses for children based on weight. This will stop any virus in its tracks. Really!!! I remind you of this every year.

Miss you all: Love Molly
