This will blow your mind! (if you are the kind of person that like it when life is regenerated from practically nothing)... if you don't want to watch the whole thing just look at min 4 to min 4:30 ish... to see the before and after... watch the whole thing if you want to hear the details. Truly amazing.

Researchers are using stem cells to grow new hearts that match a transplant recipient's original heart, so they won't be rejected. Their goal is to have a supply of organs on hand and do away with transplant waiting lists for hearts and other organs.

JEFF BROWN  says it well,
In a mad dash to react away from the perils of anger, we went too far and lost a key piece of the emotional integrity and expression cycle. This is particularly true in the spiritual community, where peacefulness has been characterized as a symbol of awakening, even if it is inauthentic and a bypass of the unresolved anger still brewing below the surface (‘The calmness bypass’). It’s important to remember that anger is a legitimate emotion that signals that a person has been violated. It is also a necessary emotion if we are going to do the work of sacred activism and challenge existing paradigms that cause suffering. Calm alone will not make the world a better place at this stage. By discouraging and shaming anger, we actually disrupt natural emotional rhythms and encourage inauthentic ways of being. In addition, repressing the emotions simply keeps the anger alive. The negativity goes underground, manifesting in a myriad of destructive forms, including passive aggressiveness, self-destructive behavior and all manner of disease. It is one thing to discourage the inappropriate expression of anger, but let us not throw the whole process out with the bath water. There is a place for healthy anger in an evolving world.

Road to Health
when the pain of staying the same is greater than the pain of change great things are possible

A Few Tips When You're Ready
1. slow and steady; avoid drastic changes as they result in a drastic crashes
2. make your goals based on consistency vs physical results
3. be excited about the journey not the outcome
4. journal or blog
5. find others on the same journey

As a gym owner for many years prior and in working with sick patients today, I know too well the frustration and depression that comes with the attempt at making changes.

This is a marathon not a sprint. 

Commit yourself to a baby step then stick to it even if it's as small as taking a daily walk. Constantly checking physical changes will leave you totally discouraged. Instead, be excited that after a week you succeeded by waking every day.

Be kind to yourself as you would be if you were teaching a child. Beating yourself is how you got here. From now on every day is self appreciation day.

Sharing your struggles and breakthroughs is actually something everyone can relate to. This change may inspire a new voice in you. Share it, write it, blog it. Passion builds passion and will fuel you through the dark times ahead.

In healing others also stuck in misery, we heal ourselves.

Connect with others on the same road to change. Friendships will deepen beyond imagination when the conversation becomes meaningful and life changing.

Good Luck! I'll see you on the road!

By piecing together a complex ecological puzzle, biologist Willie Smits believes he has found a way to re-grow clearcut rainforest in Borneo, saving local orangutans — and creating a thrilling blueprint for restoring fragile ecosystems.

Stimulants Can Kill

A serious article about a true event.

A 21 year youth pastor of local church is no longer alive.  The doctors believe it was his over-consumption of stimulant sports drinks that caused the otherwise healthy youth to pass away.

A patient of mine from the church came to me asking how this could happen and this was my explanation what likely happened:

The regular consumption of high sugar drinks developed reactive hypoglycemia. This means that his sugar highs were followed by sugar lows which created very unstable energy levels (and cravings for more). 

The high caffeine content stimulated his adrenal glands to produce epinephrine and nor-epinephrine (aka adrenaline and nor-adrenaline). These powerful sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight) hormones caused vasoconstriction of blood vessels initially driving up blood pressure.  They also suppressed ADH (anti-diuretic hormone) produced in the pituitary gland which caused dehydration.  Hot weather and vigorous exercise generated massive sweat which increased his state of dehydration.

The combination of excitatory amino acids further stimulated the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis into broad hormonal hyper-function.  Aldosterone (adrenal hormone) was forced to prop up blood pressure by retaining sodium in the kidney and to offset the decreased ADH production.

All of this created a short term "up" which likely made him feel like superman.  When he went for the hike it was 110 degrees outside.  After the "up" wore off, his system began to crash.  

By this time he was hypoglycemic, dehydrated, and hypoadrenic.  Normally in a crisis, the adrenal glands pump out powerful life saving hormones but his were entirely exhausted from the over stimulation.  With Aldosterone and ADH wiped out, he also must have dropped to very low blood pressure and likely hypovolemic shock.  B-vitamins are needed to burn sugars through the citric acid cycle but with high sugar consumption B deficiency set in which also affected heart function.   

Once his system crashed he must have passed out and he never got back up.

These drinks are potent and can be dangerous if abusively consumed.

Pass this on.  Create awareness.

Dr. John is one of the most genuine, compassionate, and caring doctors I have ever come in contact with. I can't describe in words the immense gratitude I have for what John has taught me. He's worked with me on the deepest level, and as a result I have more joy, clarity, inspiration and love for life! He took the time to get to the root of my pain. Thanks for being such a unique and one of kind health practitioner. I will always recommend Dr. John to friends, family, and even strangers. Whether they have a simple cold and flu, or a chronic condition, I know John can take care of them.
