The choice is a central part of life.  How to make a good Choice for



The right, power, or opportunity to choose.


The choice is about YOU and choice is personal and choice effects

others deeply.  And the choice YOU make today will affect all the

other choices in the years to come as YOU age.  Even a small

choice has ripples.  It may not be noticeable but I still effect more

than just today.


Learn to make the correct choice for YOU and to learn from the

wrong choice.


YOUR life is guided and defined by the choices YOU make

Know and appreciate those good choices are harder to make than

poor ones

Accomplishment of an important goal always starts with an

important choice.


Many of YOUR choices are under the control or influence of

others.  This should not be but is a normal thing.


Be a good thinker – so that your can make good choices.


Good choices are generated in our minds


Decisions that you make today started with a choice back when.

Choose the good things – integrity, peace, love, forgiveness and

keep choosing the POSITIVE things in life so that YOU will get

where you want to go and


What Does Life Expect from YOU?


I have had, over my lifetime, quite a few in my family that has

had terrible addictions.  Whether they have been from alcohol or

drugs – both have been very bad upon their life.

From my observation and I believe many phycologists will agree

that when a person with an addiction crosses the line to being

called an addict – the person’s development stops at that time

and until the can get over that addiction the maturing and

development will always be there and in their life.  That person’s

choices will not be positive or in their best interest or their family

or friends best interest.  The choice for an addict is always about

feeding the addiction – that is their #1 priority.  Everything else

takes second in their life.


For those of us who are not addicts – choice has an obvious and

immediate moral significance.


Decision-making is something all of us need to learn to do.  And

to master decision-making skills and making good decisions

depends on several factors:


Person’s developmental stage/age

Idea of right a wrong

What the decision-making process entail.



Starting young to learn to make choices is not too young.  I tried

to give my children challenges so they could make a choice and

learn how to make the correct with our family values.

Never give a child more than 2 choices – let them make the

decision and how to choose for them.


As we age we know how to choose and make better choice’s

because we know SELF better and what values we are living by.







My childhood was very controlled –although I had a great

childhood but we need to be able to do:


Critical thinking


Decision-making skills


Along the way in us from Birth through adulthood so we develop

correctly along the way.


And most times a parent does not know how critical both of those


Development processes are for being a well-adjusted adult

throughout your life and develop:


What Does Life Expect from You?


This blog is about Piaget’s stages of cognitive development to


Make sure that you look at yourself and understand where or if

YOU may need to work on anything in this area because there

are always going to be area’s of life’s development that you are

going to need to develop into that person who knows:


What Does Life Expect from YOU?


And you will not know that if you do know ALL of YOU.


So, today we will be looking into this topic:


Piaget’s stages of cognitive development are good rule to go by:


Reflexive stage

Primary circular

Secondary circular

Coordination of secondary reactions

Tertiary circular reactions

Invention of new means through mental combination


And on and on – which we will go over the remainder down the


I am sure I did not even get the basic listed above because I was

born before Piaget came up with stages.  But, we lived very

controlled because I believed everyone lived like we did.

And then I married a person who controlled me just like me

childhood was controlled only with a little mental abuse going

along with it.


Remember, whatever type of childhood you had YOU are in

Control of from now on YOU do from this day forward so that



What Does Life Expect from YOU?


Our view of our history – our childhood, teen years, and early



We all develop differently because we are all different and


Mentality we all need to have a checklist:

My checklist includes:


Being more patient with people who are not:



Time Managers


But, everyone else I can” Let God and Let Go” very well.  So my

thing is to forgive these people and go lightly on them and not

condemn them because they are not efficient and effective in

their personal and professional life.  Also, forgive myself for

having expectations from other people because I have high

expectation for SELF and so I can complete:


What Does Life Expect from ME?


And know my purpose and my life is meaningful to me and that

I have not wasted and have no regrets at the end.


When a person has been controlled by people, places or things

It does take time to develop SELF:  and YOU can do it over time

By writing in a journal, prayer, meditation or being self-aware and

Develop SELF so you can know about YOUR:



Meaningful Life

What Does Life expect from YOU?







YOU are in charge of how much nutrition YOUR body needs

Because YOU are the only one with YOUR unique body.

So, gear up and have courage about:


The 4 key nutrients your body needs:

  1. Fat
  1. Saturated Fat
  1. Sugars
  1. Sodium


And of course, the big ones:




Vitamins & Minerals


Because YOUR nutrition and nutrients are different than anyone

Else’s nutrition and nutrients YOU need to know about YOU

And that is what this website and only this website helps YOU

Learn about YOU.  Especially, the podcast talks about the


Unique YOU with all your characteristics


Look at food that provides nourishment for the body to do

What YOU need to do in life so that:

What Does Life Expect from YOU?


YOU will know and grow


Substances which provide energy:

Energy is not a nutrient but food energy is important for

providing energy for YOUR daily activities.


Protein, fats, and carbohydrates are converted into energy in

different quantities.  Vitamins and minerals are essential nutrients

for the body but are not converted into energy


Energy is required to fuel body processes and physical activity.



Fat contributes to energy intake and helps you absorb is vital

Vitamins, therefore a healthy diet should always contain a certain

amount of fat.

Saturated fat is predominately from animal sources

Unsaturated is predominately from vegetable sources

Too much-saturated fat can raise blood cholesterol and can

Increase risk of heart disease.  Intake should be no more than

Your daily recommended intake-LEARN what YOUR Intake

Should be-YOUR Uniqueness.



Sugars are carbohydrates that provide the body with energy, our

body’s fuel.  They occur naturally in fruit, vegetables, and dairy

foods.  Try not to use anything with man-made sugars in them-

almost any amount of man-made anything will put YOUR body

into the disease mode.



I have already done a blog about how important salt is to our

body – refer back to that blog.

Only use unrefined salt like the blog talks about – STOP buying

Any other kinds of salt – for YOUR best interest.



Important for the growth and repair of the body’s cells and for

building muscle.


It can also be used to provide energy.  Some good sources of

protein:  fish, meat, chicken, eggs, milk, cheese, and yogurt are

animal sources



Vegetables based protein include legumes, soybeans, baked

beans, kidney beans chickpeas and lentils, nuts and seeds.

Choose protein-rich foods that are low in saturated fat.




The main source of energy that fuels our body and everything it does,

even thinking.  They are sugars and starches.  Try to each natural

carbohydrates found in fruit and some vegetables, dairy foods.


Limit man-made carbohydrates that are made in laboratories and

that, as YOU age, will create problems in your digestive system

and add fat to your structure.






There will be several topics in today’s blog:


Like I have said over and over again here in these blogs is that

I do prevention against disease; against cancer, diabetes,

arthritis, and any other disease, any autoimmune disease is

really any disease plus inflammations of anything in the body.


My goal is to never have any of the above.  I had already

become hypothyroid in the 1980s and have been determined not

to have anything else that would cause me any disease.  So far,

I have not had any other disease besides that which being

Hypothyroid is enough because one is more susceptible to

cancer, diabetes, and heart disease being hypothyroid so I take

care nutritionally of my body.


Since each of us is unique in body structure with genes and

DNA plus a mired of other factors you need to feed your body

nutrition that will keep you from disease and this website gives

YOU the tools to know your body, mind, and spirit to keep SELF

Healthy while you age.


You need to know how much of each you body needs but

be sure you are putting into your body the best quality you can

afford anything because You are in control of YOUR body and

whether it gets any disease or not.


I believe I would not have gotten hypothyroidism if I had known that

Iodine was the one thing my thyroid runs on and my body was

running out of Iodine.


Below is a list for nutrition that YOUR body needs:




When you eat foods that contain protein, they are broken down in the body into amino acids.  These amino acids are used to build and repair any muscle tissue.  This is great for those who are physically active or exercise regularly.  You are able to recover at a faster rate than if you do not consume protein.  Every tissue in your body is made up of protein and you need to consume enough through your diet to replenish it.  Protein is also needed to help your immune and nervous system.




Gives you energy to function throughout your day.  Good carbs

Can be from vegetables and fruits.  When carbs are ingested your pancreas releases a hormone called insulin.  Insulin helps the carbs to be stored in the muscles or as fat.  Stored carbs in the body are also known as glycogen.  They are an energy supply and help to achieve better fat loss but help in overall physique.



Without fats, you will not be able to survive.  They keep your body warm during cold weather.  Fats lubricate joints and keep your muscles loose and mobile for good workouts.


Personally, I eat Irish Gold butter which is an excellent fat, I eat cottage cheese not a lot but a little.  I eat beef which has some good fat.


I stay away from bad fats – anything man-made is bad fat or anything else for that matter.


Natural fat is good fat, man-made and processed fat is bad.



Vitamins and minerals,


I make sure I also get enough vitamins and minerals.  B-complex

Is very important.  I drink Yerba mate tea-250 minerals from south

American.  Because I drink some distilled water I take Dr. Marshall’s pink salt for another good dose of minerals.



Always, enough – not too much and not too little.  I have 2 types

Filtered water at home-a PH alkaline water filter and a distilling machine for water and that is all the water I drink from those 2 sources.



Focusing on a Moment of Joy





If YOUR body is not in alignment, it can cause all sorts of


Chronic back, neck, and shoulder pain

Foot, knee, hip, and back injuries




Muscle atrophy and weakness

Difficulty breathing

Digestion issues

Impingement a nerve compression


Carpal tunnel syndrom

Just a note:  my body got out of alignment when I did not go to

the Doctor when I sprained my ankle and eventually had to have

both hips replaced.  So do take note that it does happen when

body is not in alignment

To solve the problem, you first need to pinpoint the cause.  Most

Postural deviations occur because the muscles that work to hold

A joint in place are imbalanced.  One muscle group will be too

Tight and the opposing muscle group will be too loose or weak.

Here are 5 things to helps keep body aligned

  1. Work on your posture

Pelvis, rib cage and skill are aligned on top of each other

  1. Do exercises that promotes stabilization

Strengthen core muscles of back and abdomen

  1. Practice yoga

Promotes healthy spine and efficient movement

  1. maintain a healthy weight

overweight puts stress on joints and muscles

  1. consider chiropractic care

working on spinal alignment


3 Exercises that will help alignment:

  1. Upper back and shoulders;

Standing arm circles

This exercise engages the shoulder muscles, which, in turn

Helps to stabilize and strengthen the muscles of the mid-

Spine, resulting in less low-back pain.

Stand straight, feet hip width apart.  Raise your arms so they

Are extended out to your sides at shoulder level.  Palms up

Place the fingers into the pad of each hand, thumbs pointed

Behind you.  Squeeze the shoulder blades squeezed and

And your arms raised at your sides, rotate both of your arms

Backward in a circle of about six-inch circumference.  One

Set of 40 circles.  Then, palms down, thumbs pointed

Forward in a six-inch circle.  One set of 40 circles


  1. Mid-spine:

Statiic back knee pillow squeeze

This exercise promotes pelvic stability by supporting the

shoulders and spine as you engage the pelvic muscles and

extend the mid-spine.

Lie on your back with your legs up over the seat of a chair.


Place a pillow between your knees, and hold it with your inner

Thighs.  Extend your arms out to sides at 45 degrees with

Palms up.  Gently ssqueeze the pillow with knees aand hold 1

Second, kepping upper body and abdomen relaxed.  3 sets

Of 20 squeezes.


  1. For the pelvis airbench

Promotes proper function of hips and stabilizes the pelvis.

Stand with your back against a wall with your feet and knees

Hip-width apart.  Walking your feet away from the wall about

1-1/2 feet while sliding body down to a seated position

pressing lower back against the wall.  Allow arms to hand

down to side.  Keep weight on heels.  Hold the seated position

for 1-2 minutes


These are relatively simple and fast exercises to keep your body

In alignment.  Keep doing these and set up to do these 3 -4 times

a week and your alignment will stay forever





YOU and Energy

As you will have noticed from reading the blogs on this

website there are several types of energy in YOUR body,

mind and spirit.


Energy from your body that makes everything work together

to produce energy and fuel that helps your body function

at the highest level possible – helping you to exercise, and

give you stamina.  This type of energy comes partly from your

thyroid and the fact that it is working at the highest level

possible.  Blood type 0 has a high propensity to having thyroid

problems – so make sure your thyroid has enough iodine (I use

nascent iodine) and that is after 30 years of having thyroid

problems and not knowing how important iodine is).

But, the other energy comes from energy flowing throughout

YOUR body and extends beyond your body and probably from

science what Shamans have known for ever mixes with the

energy from other around you and the whole universal


So that energy comes from how healthy your body is and how

it flows throughout your body.   And the higher the energy level

of hertz the better energy flows up and down, and in and out so

keeping the PH level and energy flowing it is always for the

betterment of YOU.


It is up to YOU to keep the energy and make sure YOUR body

Is kept healthy and high on good organic food, and by

Exercising to keep everything running at the top level of

Energy YOU can.

It is about YOU and it will only happen because of YOU.

Do you have the courage to find out?




It takes courage and time to get YOU into the healthy

And happy shape so you can age well.

YOU are extraordinary – I am sorry YOU have to prove that


YOU have to know your body, mind and spirit so that YOU

Know how and what makes YOUR body run at it’s highest

Level and best maintained function.  YOU will not know that

By listening to well-intentioned family, friends, and any other

Environment you are in.


Do not worry about what family and friends think of you.

YOU are on a MISSION:





That takes time and effort on YOUR part because YOUR


And you need to know what power your sub-consciousness can

Sub-conscious mind can provide the answer if you put in the time

It is all powerful, provides the energy you need, provides the

Creativity you need so you know:



It is a daily walk with SELF – and of course, YOUR Higher Power

that has connected everything from the universe to the little lady



You would not be here, at this website, on this day, and at this


Time if YOU did not want to find out about


YOU will build your own TOOLBOX of  SELFhood so that you will












high protein, low carb dietWhen you go to buy foods that are marked “organic” you need to

do your research on what the FDA qualifies as “organic”?

Revised rules went into effect on Oct. 21, 2002 and the

Latest USDA definition states:

Organic food is produced by farmers who emphasize the use of

renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to

enhance environmental quality for future generations.  Organic

meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products come from animals that

are given no antibiotics or growth hormones.  Organic food is

produced without using most conventional pesticides; petroleum-

based fertilizers or sewage sludge-based fertilizer;

bioengineering; or ionizing radiation.  Before a product can be

labeled “organic,” a Government-approved certified inspect the

farms where the food is grown to make sure the farmer is

following all the rules necessary to meet USDA organic

standards.  Companies that handle or process organic food

before it gets to your local supermarket or restaurant must be

certified, too.

BUT, you need to think about the following when you are

shopping in your neighborhood grocery store:

  1. The air and weather has been loaded down with metals

and toxins for years now.

  1. The soil has been depleted of nutrients for years now.
  1. The seeds that are used for growing YOUR food have

all been genially engineered, and for fast growing at that.


So I buy the best quality fresh vegetables I can afford, I buy

vegetables that I have to peel-carrots, beets, cucumbers, and

others that I can peel or have a thick skin,

The most nutrients I put in my body every week is the juice

I make:  chard with turmeric, olive oil and black pepper or

carrot juice with fresh ginger root.  You can freeze individual

portions and use within 1 week.


Although it is difficult to say I do this 100% of the time-but I try

hard not to buy anything in a:  bag, box, or canned food.

I do buy tuna fish at Whole Foods, plus I buy Whole Foods

365 brand.




You are going to have to supplement because of the conditions

that the food is grown and processed anymore.  50 to 100 or

more years ago the environment and soils were organic but

that is not the case anymore.


Read, do YOUR research so You understand the process of

the food you and YOUR family eat anymore.

The grains and how they affect your digestive system and YOUR


The sky’s are being sprayed and that is having a terrible effect

on YOUR body and the food you put in it.  Toxins and heavy

metals that do damage to your body.  BEWARE – BEWARE

Over time all these negative items going into your body

will make your body diseased and sick.  Not only will YOUR

body become sick but YOU will die sick and I know that is

not what you want for you, your children or your family and



We want to die of old age and happy and healthy.  Not hooked

up to any machine where our family and friends stand around

waiting for me to die.


Dring Water

…Movable parts of the same – which is SELF

Each can be addressed separately, but what affects the MIND, affects the BODY, and affects the SPIRIT.

So we can talk about the pineal gland here in the MIND but we can also talk about it in the BODY and SPIRIT.

Do you know how important the pineal gland is to YOU?

This tiny organ regulates your daily and seasonal circadian rhythms, the sleep-wake patterns that determine your hormone levels, stress levels, and physical performance.

Pineal gland is a small, rice-size, pinecone-shaped endocrine organ that sits alone in the  middle of your brain at eye level.

Fluoride (the bad kind of fluoride) will make this gland harden, resulting in less melatonin being produced, thus disturbing your wake-sleep cycle.

Below are some ways to help clean the pineal gland:

  • Iodine – I take nascent iodine
  • Calcium bentonite clay drink

Some of the ways to activate the pineal gland are:

  • Sun
  • Sleep in darkness with no electronics in bedroom
  • Meditation-directing energy to this highly sensitive organ

Children in the United States are reaching the age of puberty at earlier ages than in the past – a trend that carries health consequences, including a heightened risk for breast cancer.

Some evidence indicates that fluoride and it effects on the pineal gland could be a contributing to this trend.

Cities are now finding out that the fluoride that they are buying to put into city water if not a good fluoride and may, not only affect pineal gland but also IQ – research has been done in different countries.  And damages bone and may increase hip fractures in the elderly.  Fluoride may cause bone cancer, research by National Cancer Institute in young men in fluoridated versus fluoridated areas.  Fluoride may also cause reproductive problems.  There has been researching about the effects of Floride around the world.

Low-income families are especially penalized by fluoridation and are the very people being targeted by new fluoridation programs.

It is hard to inform low-income families and black and Hispanic children are more vulnerable to fluoride’s toxicity.  Now that you know the bad side of fluoride and if you do volunteer work in YOUR community – spread the word – once YOU know something YOU have to take action.


This is where the fluoride in most city water comes from,  it is not a pharmaceutical grade, instead, it comes from the wet scrubbing systems of the phosphate fertilizer industry so they can make money instead of putting it in a city landfill which is not allowed in most cities.

 Fluoride is an environmental health threat but it is easy to end.

Go to your city meetings and usually, there is an anti-fluoride group  — join them, help them and inform YOUR community and try to reach out the low-income families so they have the information they need to make good decisions for their families.

Healthy Nutrition

SELF needs to know what helps the mind function at a high level while aging…

Does YOUR mind have enough B-12, or other minerals, nutrients to help it function at its highest level every day?
My brain gets a variety of nutrients every day: all B vitamins, coconut oil, multivitamins, lithium oratate, plus other things for my Blood type-0 positive.
The right thoughts, the right nutrients, knowing and controlling SELF, are a good start to feeding YOUR mind the right things while aging.
