Coronary calcium is a good indicator of heart attack risk since it

measures the amount of calcium, one of the components that can

build up in plaques that narrow heart vessels and can rupture and

cause heart attacks.


Plaque builds up can cause terrible effects on your health but

Eating healthy from a young age – and can slow your energy

Down, cause heart attacks.


Those eating 7 – 9 servings of vegetables and fruit a day on average were 25 % less to have coronary calcium in their arteries


There are several things that I have done over the years that have


Helped clean plaque out of my vessels and that is:


  1. I have flossed my teeth for 35 years now once a day


  1. I have taken L-arginine


L-arginine is a type of amino acid, and as we know, amino acids are the “building blocks” of proteins.


L-arginine is considered somewhat essential because it is highly important for many functions and I will list the benefits of L-arginine:


Stimulates growth hormones and insulin that help usher glucose into cells to be used for growth and energy output.


Enhances physical performance, stamina, and strength


Fight inflammation


Lowering risk for arteriosclerosis and heart attack


Repairing blood vessels


Fighting congestive heart failure


Help lower high blood pressure


Improving athletic performance


Increase immune function


Improve kidney function


Reduce muscle pains


Improve mental capacity


Fighting dementia


Preventing common cold


Correcting impotence


L-arginine is needed by the endothelial cells in order to form enough nitric oxide to keep blood flowing freely.


Listed below are 5 ways L-arginine helps the body:


  1. improves heart health


  1. Lowers inflammation and fights the effects of aging.


  1. Boosts exercise performance


  1. improves immunity. Helps prevent infections and speeds up



  1. helps treat erectile dysfunction and infertility


Some of the best natural sources of L-arginine includes:


Cage-free eggs


Dairy products-cultured yogurt, kefir, raw organic cheese


Grass fed beef


Liver and organ meats


Wild caught fish


Sesame seeds


Pumpkin seeds


Sunflower seeds


Seaweed and sea vegetables




Brazil nuts






Coconut meat


Everything about YOU – your mind, body, and spirit are


interacting every minute of every day of your life.  The more


You know about all YOU – the more you will age healthy and


live life until you die.


Each of us had our own childhood – whatever our socioeconomic


Status was.


My mother always had:





I grew up on that food-mother never had a vegetable garden

because we lived in a city.


I do believe strongly that people who were raised on farms and

had gardens and chickens or pigs or beef are probably in better

health than my family and aged healthy.


For 35 years I have been doing preventive for SELFhood.


Everything I talk about on this website I have probably done over

these 35 years to age healthily.

Love Dr. Leo Buscaglia


Today, this blog will be about Dr. Buscaglia and what wonderful

work he did in making it ok to internalize and externalize LOVE

And how important it is in each of us and to extend to our

the outer world of family, friends and to everyone we come in

contact with.


I never met the man but came across his Book LOVE in the

The 1980s when I was starting to develop to see who I was

because until then I had been controlled by parents, husband, and

society and the environment.  I needed to know ME – SELFhood.


Dr. Buscaglis/’s theory is that love is learned and that everyone

can and should learn to love.  Love SELF first and then out into

the universe.  But, there are people with negative energy and

needy, dramatic and chaos people you need to stay away from.


Below are some wonderful quotes from Dr. Buscaglia:


Your talent is God’s gift to you.  What you do with it is your

Gift back to GOD.



Now, that is what my podcast and book are about:

“What Does Life expect from YOU?”


Only the weak are cruel.  Gentleness can only be expected from the Strong.


I have a very strong feeling that the opposite of love is not hate-

It is apathy.  It is not giving a damn.


Love is life. And if you miss love, you miss life.


Biologically and physiologically, we are not equal.  Some of us learn better at different times of the day.  Some learn best visually, some auditorially, some tactilely, by touching.


If I don’t have wisdom, I can teach you only ignorance.


What we call the secret of happiness is no more a secret than our willingness to choose life.


Love is always open arms.  If you close your arms about love you will find that you are left holding only yourself.


Never idealize others.  They will never live up to your expectations.


Do not brood.  Get on with living and loving.  You do not have forever.


What love we are given, we will have forever.  What love we fail to give, will be lost for all eternity.


One of my favorites:

The easiest thing to be in the world is YOU.  The most difficult thing to be is what other people want you to be.  Do not let them put you in that position.


From ME:  SELFhood is what he is talking about.  YOUR uniqueness.


Change is the end result of all true learning.


I love reading reviews of books and reading the reviews of Dr.


Buscaglia’s books are uplifting and motivational in their own



One reviewer talks about his anger which has haunted him his

Whole life and that this one little book has helped him so much.

He still has anger issues but it is helping him in his daily life.

To me, this book is about loving firstly SELF-so you can go out

Into the world and love others not intimately always – but letting

People know you love them by your speech, actions, and loving








YOU have to protect your MIND


The best way to do that is having knowledge on what

may affect YOUR mind.


More and more research is coming out about

Hormone-disrupting chemicals are doing to not only

YOUR mind but your body which affects YOUR spirit.


It is all connected so just remember:


Body = Mind = Spirit = Body = Mind =Spirit


It all is connected please remember that

So it is important to know that there have been

Many people over many years that have done research

And been talking about hormone-disrupting chemicals

And how they are affecting YOU but your children, family

And friends in many ways.



Dr. Blylock


Dr. Mercola


Since I have been listening to these wonderful researchers and

Doctors for almost 20 years I have been aware of hormone-

disrupting chemicals for all those years and I have been

taking steps to eliminate them as much as possible.


But, because of what the multinational food companies and

supplement companies have been doing for past 20-30

years these small particles are already in all of our body

through the skin, blood and anyway they can get into our

Mind, Body and Spirit.


I am very careful about what I buy at grocery store-






And I do juice with extra turmeric and ground pepper and

olive oil.  Beet juice plus a lot of GOOD Supplements-I get only

Prescription quality supplements at:


Local Pharmacy

The Power Hour

I would never buy anything at corner pharmacy’s or grocery stores


Even exposure to tiny doses of hormone-disrupting chemicals

Is responsible for at least $340 billion in health-relate costs each



Flame retardants and pesticides, in particular, are known to affect

the developing brain and can lead to loss of IQ.


Each IQ point lost corresponds to approximately two percent in

lost productivity.


The costs and benefits of regulation should be openly debated,

citing the decision in the 1970s to ban lead in paint and also in



Bisphenol A

Cleaning products


Weaponizing weather particles

Anything man-made should be avoided as much as possible.

So-called endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) are found in

Thousands of everyday products, ranging from plastic and metal

food containers, to detergents, flame retardants, toys and

cosmetics plus those mentioned above.


Neurological damage and behavioral problems, including

attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder(ADHD), autism and loss of


The body’s endocrine tissues produce essential hormones that

help regulate energy levels, reproduction, growth, development,

as well as our responses to stress and injury.


EDC’s lock on to receptors within a human cell and block the

body’s own hormones from binding to it.  Very adverse

consequences and life-long consequences at that.



Of everything you buy

Of everything you put in your mouth

Of everything YOUR children have in their room, put into

their mouth, or anything they eat.


Be smart

Be aware

Be informed






This blog about YOUR Spirit we will be talking about one of most

enlighten spiritual books in the last 50 years and how it may

affect your life and your journey and empower YOU.




By Paulo Coelho


It is about a shepherd and moving in a simple way while he was

Egyptian pyramids.


The shepherd meets many spiritual messengers along his

suffering itself.


If we are living in fear, we cannot move forward with our dreams

and opportunities.


There are only 2 emotions – LOVE and FEAR.

It is always better to live in Love and move forward through the



There are a lot of lessons in this book – this little book about a


Listening to our hearts and following YOUR dreams.

Living in the moment

Freeing YOUR self from fear

Understanding YOU are part of the energy of the Universe

Understanding everything will work out the way it was intended.

The universe will conspire to help YOU fulfill YOUR purpose –

Use YOUR sub-consciousness every day.


I always have enjoyed stories that




Each of us in our own way.  ‘

We all know a lot if we have gotten out of high school but we all

Need encouragement and empowerment at different times in our

lives.  Especially, when we have all been touched by tragic and

trauma – which includes anything like; death, divorce, anything

that can affect a person


This one little book are a simple tale about trying to keep us,

YOU, to keep diving into the strong current and to see where it

takes us.  But be inspired by the words that the shepherd kept

having in his mind and thoughts that kept leading him towards his

the goal of seeing his mission to get to Egypt and his goals.


This book will help you remain in YOUR center and is an exquisite


The book emphasizes the reason for each living in the now as

opposed to one’s past  and future.  You will remember this book

And the shepherd’s journey and go back to read it over the years.

All the yesterday’s make up our history and YOUR life.

But this little book and all the blogs will help YOU


What Does Life Expect from YOU?


It is everyday journey and because you have to keep all your

Mind, body and spirit in mind with every step of every day







YOU and Prevention


Do Prevention for your health, body, and peace of mind.

It is harder to cure a disease than it is to prevent one.

Let me give you a list of disease you can prevent because I


Have been doing prevention for close to 30 years so that I do

Not get cancer, diabetes, arthritis and a mired of many others


Diseases that can be caused by inflammation and/or autoimmune




Listed below is a list of things that may cause disease:


Blood type








Processed foods










Many other items


Feed your cells well, feed your organs well, do your exercises,

think positive, be happy, love, forgive and do what YOUR body

requires to live healthy while YOU age and do not forget to be

thankful, meditate, and prayer.


I highly suggest that knowing YOUR characteristics that helps

Know what YOUR body needs to be and stay healthy.

Blood type

Birth Date


Personality type

Family relations

Pecking order


Since a lot of diseases starts in the gut – always good to start with

A good probiotic – I use one that was created by a Japanese

Doctor – Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics – Pharmacist Ross Pelton sells it

And I buy it at my local pharmacy but you can order.

Pharmacist Pelton has a wonderful website


He was doing cancer researcher almost 30 years ago and is

so Informative on all issues of the body and health.


It does take time and effort – courage to know that you want to

age healthy,

I had both my hips replace years ago – from body being out of

Alignment and not arthritis.  So I work on my upper leg muscles –

And I now I can walk up and down stairs without holding on to

railings but I continue to work on my upper leg muscles to build

them up for aging as I go along here.


Prevention should become a lifelong journey, as it has for me.


I work daily on prevention of any disease.  My childhood family

Had all passed over the bridge by the time I was 63.

Brother dies of colon cancer and diabetes

Sister dies of leukemia

Mother dies of lung cancer

All within 2 ½ years.


My goal and daily mission are not to have those diseases


Since they have passed I went into depression so I am now

Taking Lithium Orates – I do get mine from:

The Power Hour – I also buy supplements from quality people,

places and websites that I know have quality, pharmacist quality



I do treat my body like a temple because it is taking me the end

of my life and I want it in the best shape I can keep it.

YOUR body is a temple and should be treated as such so

that family and friends can see how well you are doing.


Life and time do not give an inch because YOU need to

start today – not tomorrow-tomorrow will – always start today.


Take small steps if you must – but take one step.







YOU and YOUR infinite Spirit

Your spirit like mind and body is infinite – because it is ALL YOU

And that which is YOU is all infinite – YOUR physical body will die

But there is consciousness and soul and energy which is ALL,

EVERYTHING and FOR ALWAYS out there in the ether.

Dr. Pattakos book with Dr. Covey and Viktor Frankl’s life story

Is about how YOU have wonderful meaning in life – but the

Journey sometimes has bumps and mountains and YOU much

Learn to navigate over and around those bumps and mountains

In YOUR own unique way.

Some of the ways:

Exercise the personal freedom to choose our attitude and outlook

Realize our will to meaning or significance

Detect the meaning of life’s moments and questions

Do not work against our self

Look at our self from a distance

Shift our focus of attention or maintain fluidity or perception

Extend beyond yourself

YOUR life is what YOU make IT –

MAKE it great

MAKE it meaningful

MAKE it with love and forgiveness so you have JOY

So you have peace, harmony, and contentment at the end.


Viktor Frankl was a professor of neurology and psychiatry at University of Vienna Medical School and was the founder of what was call school of logotherapy.  Frankl’s theory is that man’s search for meaning is the primary motivation in his life.  The strength of a person’s sense of meaning, responsibility, and purpose is the greatest determine factor in how that question will be answered.


How do I go about making my life meaningful?

How do I go about making my life have a purpose?

We have great power to shape our attitudes and responses to the challenges that life presents to each of us, and that we grow thanks to these challenges.

Our spirit grows as our mind grows as our body ages.

Leave this plane knowing that you have left it with meaning, purpose and left your mark on family, friends and the many that have passed in the night.


Like someone said:

Frankl’s book will not show YOU the meaning of life but he will help you develop the tools, because you are unique, to develop the tools to find your own meaning.


Ralph Waldo Emerson was the person below,

“He did not try to lead others to himself, but to themselves”.


There it is again:

“What Does Life Expect From YOU?”


Tools to help YOU find that out is here at this website and that is my goal.

Nietzsche’s dictum is “He who has a WHY to live and bear with almost any HOW,’


Start today and continue on for the rest of your life here on this plane – learning, growing, developing, being a part of, sharing, loving, forgiving, having JOY


In all his tragic trauma Dr. Frankl found that meaning in his life and that is what he wanted, in all his writings, for you to have found YOUR meaning – in all your uniqueness, in all your tragic and trauma from living.  Find it for SELF, for peace, for quiet, for forgiveness, for love, for the JOY


Dring Water




Dr. Masaru Emoto devoted his life helping other learn to use

prayer and blessing to improve their lives.


Dr. Emoto was fascinated with water and wondered if there were

methods of expressing difference in the nature of water.


He knew that water from a natural spring was better for you than

tap water or stagnant water.


And does water have messages for us.  Could we develop ways

to receive those messages from water.


Dr. Emoto developed a process in which he would freeze drops of

water and take photographs of individual water crystals that

formed.  He found that his theory was correct; like snowflakes,

very water crystal is unique.  But he learned much more than that.


Dr. Emoto found that you could tell much about the nature of the

water by photographing it in this way, and more importantly, that,

as human beings, we ca change the nature of water in many

ways.  Water truly does have powerful messages for us.


One of the first things that Dr. Emoto learned was that all water

does not form beautiful crystals.  He tested top water from around

the world and found that tap water does not form water crystals.

Stagnant or polluted water does not form water crystals either, but

forms unpleasant, deformed frozen structures.  Rainwater, water

from clean streams and rivers, water from glaciers, and water

from holy places around the world form beautiful crystals when



Then he wondered if we, as human beings, can change the

nature of water, so he tried many techniques to test this.  Dr.

Emoto found that if he played beautiful music in the presence of

tap water, it would then make beautiful frozen crystal formations.

He also leaned that the written word changed the water.  Dr.

Emoto taped paper strips on bottles of tap water and then

photographed the frozen water.  He found that words such as

“Thank you” and “I love you”, cause the tap water to form beautiful

crystals.  Words such as “You make me sick,” or You are a fool,”

caused ugly, distorted crystals or no crystals at all.  Dr. Emoto

then found that we cause tap water to form beautiful frozen water

crystals simply by praying for the water, by sending it loving

thoughts, and by blessing it, like YOU should be blessing your

food before you eat.


YOU can learn to use prayerful intent to put beneficial energies

into your body, into substances, such as food and water, into

objects, such as jewelry, and into your living environment.  You

can bless things with unique energy vibrations as defined by



YOU can also change detrimental energies into beneficial

energies, all with the power of prayer and blessing.


Start YOUR blessings with water, food, and even your car with

The powerful INTENT.

How powerful is water in YOUR life?



Distilled water

Filtered water

Bless YOUR water

Bless YOUR food

Put a little Red Baron soda into to help alkaline-a pinch will do.






Are YOU keeping track of your Alkaline levels –Ph.


Use the little yellow stripes to check your alkaline levels.  Give

them out to friends who have no idea what alkaline level is.

Spread the knowledge you are learning from this website.


I first became aware of Dr. Theodore A. Baroody’s book, “Alkalize

or Die” probably about 16 years ago.  One of my favorite radio

people, Patrick Timpone, talked about health issues and I paid

attention to his research and what he had to say about everything.


Dr. Baroody shows how excess acids in the small intestines can

negatively affect that vital organ.  You need a clear understanding

of how alkalizing our body tissues can boost overall health and

the health of specific areas of your body.  Eating alkaline forming

foods are a solution to the problem of excess tissue acids, but

drinking alkaline water produced by any of the quality alkaline

water filters are a simpler and effective way to alkalize your



I have 2 different water items in my home:

  1. Megahome water distiller

Love it.  Have to clean it with vinegar once a month or so.

Have to take Dr. Marshall’s pink salt for minerals or can take

Other minerals but have to add minerals of some kind when

you have a water distiller.  But it is so clean and wonderful to

know I am drinking what I feel like to “CLEAN” water.


  1. PH-CT-500

Love it also.  Lasts 3,000 gallons of anti-oxidation and

alkalization to your body.  Just check it with the little yellow

strips to make sure you do not need new filter and that is still

alkalized water.  Everyone is different on usage.

Too much acid waste production from acid-forming foods is

a great burden on your body.


Have you heard of “Peyer’s Patches in the upper portion of?

the small intestines which is crucial to life.  The patches are

essential for proper assimilation of food throughout the

system and supply an important link between the autonomic

and cerebrospinal nervous system by producing lymphatic

system’s wide ranging nodal network.  And they produce

large amounts of enzyme chyle, a major alkalizing substance

created in the physical body.


Acid waste attacks the following body parts:




From colon into liver and back into general circulation.

Then into tissues

Tissues determine sickness or health

Acid wastes attacks the joints, tissues, muscles, organs and

glands causing minor to major dysfunction.


Be watchful of your bodies alkalization – use the yellow

strips always.  Know that your blood work tested by your

Annual medical test is good.

It is a daily watch for your alkaline = that is why I like juicing

Chard and put turmeric with alittle olive oil and grind black

pepper into it.  Makes for an easy way to keep up my

alkaline plus the other things that I do to help keep my body

on the journey.


This is an easy read book, lots of information, lots of good

recipes and list of foods with their acid/alkalizing numbers.






YOUR immune system functions optimally when your body has

an adequate supply of electrons, which are easily and naturally

obtained by barefoot contact with the earth.


Research indicates that electrons from the earth have


effects that can protect your body from inflammation and its


well-documented health consequences.  For most of our

evolutionary history humans have had continuous contact with

the earth.


It is only recently that substances such as asphalt, wood, rugs,

and plastics have separated us from this contact.


The earth maintains a negative electrical potential on its

body, inducing favorable physiological and electrophysiological

changes that promote optimum health.


Earthing is highly beneficial to our health and minimizes the

consequences of exposure to potentially disruptive fields like

“electromagnetic pollution or dirty electricity.


I have done earthing over the years – and not as consistently as


would have like to or should have.  But I have known it has


beneficial to us for years.  When I go and sit in the grass or just

stand in the grass or ground I can feel the energy flowing up


through my body.


Some of the research has been finding that some of the benefits


Decreasing inflammation and chronic pain by defusing excess

positive electrons


Improving sleep by normalizing biological rhythms, including

circadian rhythm


Increasing energy through improved blood flow and blood



Lowering stress and increasing a sense of calm by reducing

stress hormones


Improving menstrual and female hormone systems


Accelerates the healing or wounds and shortens recovery time

from injury or athletic activity


Relieving muscle tension and headache


Protecting the body from EMF’s and re-directing damaging

electromagnetic energy


Support adrenal health


At the time there are a dozen or so completed studies on

grounding that has proven beyond any doubt that becoming

grounded has significant positive effects on our physiology and

heart health.

Really has lots of information on lowering stress and creates

calmness so take heed and go out and stand/or sit in the grass.


is okay – you will be able to, like me, feel the energy moving

within your body.


YOU should go barefoot and try for 40 minutes a day.  They say

concrete is conducive but I like grass, dirt or sand.   They say

concrete floor ==like basement floor is ok.  Barefoot for sure.


Grounding also positively affects your nervous system and has

been researched that may lead to a reduction in some of your



My goal since the 1980s has been not to take any medication –

requires to stay healthy.
