Nothing To Eat

Posted in Health and Wellness with tags , , , , , , , , on November 9, 2012 by ctkwingchun

Patient came into clinic last night with a yeast infection.

I recommended to her that she not eat any sugar for about 10 days while I treated her and she used an over-the-counter medication.

“No sugar!?” she exclaimed.  “What will I eat then because everything has sugar in it?”

Deadpan, I replied, “Vegetables, fruits, nuts and meats.

I Like Playing With Myself

You read that right.

I mean, you probably read that with your mind in the wrong place, but you read it right.

I play with myself all the time.  I play with my mind – constantly changing my world view.  I play with my body – stretching, playing with my posture, pull-ups at the playground.  I play with my soul – allowing the Great Spirit to enter my being and take life’s burdens away.

Better get playing with yourself, no?

It Didn’t Work

Patient: “Can you do anything about belly fat?”

Me: “Yes.  Stop eating sugar and get more vigorous exercise.”

Patient: “I tried that last winter and it didn’t work.”

Me: “It might take a little longer than a winter…”

Dis-Ease

How does your pain, illness, disease serve you?

What story does it allow you to tell?

And how fearful do you feel about the possibility of stripping  it all away?

What if you had all the answers inside you to fix you?

How many tears would you shed?

If you were to let it go, how would you feel?  How alone, naked and vulnerable would you feel?

…and yet, so liberated, no?

Pain in the Foot

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on June 8, 2009 by His Dark Side

There are too gimmicks when it comes to fitness training, martial arts and nutrition. For instance, there is an endless supply of machines at the gym which encourage you to sit down or lay down. Utter nonsense. We are all destined to lay down in a coffin one day so why in the hell would you want to mimic this at he gym when we should be up, moving with intensity and reinforcing our feelings of ALIVENESS.

This study exposes the ridiculous errors that we get suckered into making when buying ultra-expensive running shoes. In terms of performance, it confirms that there is no difference between cheap running shoes and those ‘top-of-the-line’ girly-boy shoes;

On this point I used to suffer plantar fasciitis, an inflammation which affected the arches of my feet. For years I paced myself when it came to sprinting and skipping with a view to trying to reduce the pain. It was only after a great deal of frustration that I began researching and realized that pacing myself was the WRONG thing to do. By refraining from hard foot based training and additionally dressing my feet up in increasingly more cushioned (and more expensive!) shoes I was actually reducing the NATURAL STRENGTH of my feet. Since then I now pound the sprint track with un-cushioned, thin shoes which free my foot into moving naturally. As a result, my feet became stronger, the arches lifted and the pain disappeared. My feet (and knees) have never felt better!
