Ten things to screw up when putting out an ebook:


As the Internet has gotten larger and more prolific, it can be difficult to research and find the exact information you need. E books have filled this need with instant, tailored information, delivered for a price. Publishing an ebook is much easier than publishing a paper book, and it can pay even better. Thanks for sharing.

Ten things to screw up when putting out an ebook:


It’s too long. This sucker is 220+ pages! I didn’t know that eBooks were better off at a shorter length. People don’t tend to read for hours on end on a digital screen, and they tend to go for shorter eBooks for that reason.
It’s too expensive. At $36, it offers great value given all the stuff I packed into it, but people are used to paying less for eBooks. Even worse, by blowing out all my info in one book, I had no followup book to up-sell the writers who bought the first book. I wasn’t creating a sales machine, like you want. I just had a one-off product. Again, I probably would have done better publishing a smaller ebook at a lower price.
It should have been split. The book has three sections — how to write for publications, copywriting, and blogging. Duh! I could have created a cool Make a Living Writing ebook series, strengthened my brand, and had more products to sell. It’s always better to have more products because then you can bundle them in different ways or offer them as freebies to incent people to buy other products. Also, splitting it up likely would have gotten the first one done faster and allowed me to start earning sooner.
Not enough specifics. I’ve learned that writers need to be told very specifically, exactly how you do something. For instance, one I got recently: “If I’m contacting a charity about doing a pro bono sample, what exactly should I say to not seem desperate?” You can bet the next version of this material will have a lot more granular detail and answers to these nitty-gritty questions.
No setup for sequels. My title says it covers this entire century. What was I thinking? If I’d called it Make a Living Writing 2010, I could have published a new and slightly updated version of it each year, like What Color is Your Parachute? does, and created a franchise. The release of the new edition would have generated new interest and sales each year.
No related Webinars or classes. If there’s one thing I’ve learned about writers, it’s that you love free stuff. You also love live training, where you can get your personal questions answered by experts. I found there is much more interest in my one-on-one coaching and my classes than I ever saw from the ebook, because the ebook wasn’t presented as part of a suite of comprehensive learning help. (Look for me to create eBooks from some of my courses and Den boot-camps in the future to rectify this problem.)
Next to no marketing. I really had no idea how to market an ebook. OK, I built a little interest with a few blog posts about the content. But honestly — I did no contest, no giveaways, I wasn’t on Twitter yet. It was pretty minimal. I didn’t have a bunch of big bloggers contribute to it so that there’d be a team of people ready to help me market it. I look back now and I can think of 20 ways to promote it that I didn’t yet understand. So there was no big explosion of initial sales.
It’s only a PDF. I did not have the vaguest idea how to digitally publish an ebook. Rather than try to figure it out, I wanted to just do a PDF. I knew how to get a designer to make me a PDF, so I did that. The world of digital publishing for the Kindle and Nook and all the other ways completely confused me. So I ignored it. The problem is, the Kindle format is just exploding. I kept getting inquiries from writers about whether I had a Kindle version — and I had to tell them no, I didn’t. Who knows how many sales I lost.
Formatted wrong for digital. After doing the PDF, I learned you need very specific formatting in order for a book to transfer to Kindle and other popular ebook formats. Of course, I didn’t bother to learn those specs and use them in creating my PDF. Given that, I would have needed to get someone to reformat the whole thing and repage it, which sounded like a massive headache. So I just passed on the whole opportunity. Now I realized it was stupid not to make the effort to get it converted.
No sales funnel. Let’s face it — at this point, if your ebook isn’t on Amazon, you are missing a huge automatic sales funnel that could be sending you customers while you sit back and do nothing. Your ability to promote it on your own tiny blog is nothing compared to the exposure it gets on one of the biggest sites on the Internet, just from people doing searches in their “book” tab.
The whole time I’ve been selling my ebook, the Kindle phenomenon has just been growing and growing. Now, it’s too big to ignore.

THE GOOGLATOR IS HERE!


Course Description

Attention: South African Local Business Owners or Online/Offline Marketers... "Discover How to Get Any Local Business to Page 1 of Google, Bing, Yahoo and Any Other Search Engines In Less Than 30 Days, Knock Out the Local Competition & Get More Calls, Leads & Sales Online!" And right now you are about to get access to the exact training course that you can use to get there fast! It's step by step, literally!
If you are thinking of starting a local business or online/offline marketing consultancy, you probably realize that Google is a goldmine, way better than any Zama-Zama deal and much much safer, if you know how to tap into it.
And until recently, when a consumer typed a keyword phrase into Google search, there were just 10 results on the 1st. page and that was it. You were competing with the entire country for 10 spots on that coveted first page. And that just wasn't going to happen! Not without spending big bucks on SEO!
And to top it all off, if you are still advertising in the telephone book, you realize that the phone book is sleeping with the dinosaurs, since you are not getting nearly as many calls as you once did and you haven’t found a way to replace that income yet. By now, you probably also realize that the internet is the key but where must you start?
Well, Here's My Deal...
Just 10 short years ago, over 90% of all consumers went straight to their phone book to find the products & services they needed BUT...
Today those numbers are much different...
Here's how the numbers break down today:
·        97% of consumers start their search online AND...
·        82% of those consumers use Google
But here's the 1st potential killer for you...
·        93% of those searchers don't go past Google - page 1
That's right. The only people who really go past page 1 are historical product and service researchers. Consumers are more likely to run a new search before they ever go to page 2 to see more results.
So if you aren't on page 1 of Google, what are your chances of getting found by people looking for what you are offering? If you said, 'few to none' you are correct. And since you realize that, you can get started now with Google Local the 'right way' and step on your competition’s throat. But before you do...
Here's my 2nd potential killer trick for you...
Google only shows up to a max of 7 local businesses on page 1 for any given keyword phrase. Why is that such a huge problem you ask?
Because chances are...
...you have more than 6 local competitors in your area who are doing exactly what you are doing, right? You may even have as many as 70 competitors in your entire city and every single one of you are fighting for just 7 spots on page 1 of the world's most powerful and most popular search engine, Google.
The days of the full page phone book ad are gone forever!
Back then, if you really wanted to beat all of your local competitors, you would get a full page colour ad in the phone book...in the best position available and your telephone would ring all week long.
Well...Not anymore!
Google Local Search is Your New Phone Book 2.0
Have no doubt that being on page 1 of Google will do wonders for your business, especially as more and more of the world is going 'mobile'. In fact, something like 70% of all mobile searches is for 'local services and products'.
So how do you get to page 1 of Google fast?
Yup! You guessed it. My online training course is how. So here are the 3 steps you need to take right now if you want to dominate the 1st page of Google in your local area.
·        Step 1. Subscribe to my course right now. 
·         
·        Step 2. Go through the information and do the steps one by one, as I teach them to you.
·         
·        Step 3. Sit back and enjoy the new customers you get from being on page 1
Not to mention the joy you will feel when you know your competitors are green with envy & probably filled with a little bit of anger as well.
Just give me a like below for more details.

How to create your true life purpose quickly


If you’ve ever hit rock bottom or been through a very difficult time in life, you may have asked yourself:
“Is there a purpose for this suffering in my life?”
Or, “Is suffering necessary to discover my purpose or happiness in life?”
If so, keep reading, because in today’s blog post, world-renowned life coach, motivational speaker, and spiritual author, Mary Morrissey, shares how after many decades of helping people achieve their goals, she too fulfilled one of her own biggest dreams...
Meeting the legendary South African president, Nelson Mandela.
In this fascinating article, Mary opens up about the joy of meeting this incredible man face-to-face and reveals his simple yet powerful answer to a very challenging question…
Enjoy!
~~~~~~
What My Conversation with Nelson Mandela Taught Me About Finding Purpose Amidst Suffering
Many times, I’ve been asked why bad things happen to good people.
What purpose does pain and suffering serve… and does it come into our lives because we deserve it on some level?
Whatever form the question takes, the answer is nearly always the same:
Not one of us deserves to suffer, but suffering can be a doorway that allows us to step into a fuller, freer, more expansive version of ourselves.

BENEFITS OF TURMERIC: POSTS FROM MY READERS

I am a woman almost 60 yrs. old who has suffered from RA since 31 yrs. of age. I was taking 2 x-strength ibuprofen daily for over 20 yrs. until recently, when a doctor told me I should stop. I didn’t know it, but long term use of ibuprofen, can cause severe insomnia (which I had), as well as a host of other problems, and since quitting taking it about 4 weeks ago, I’ve been sleeping like a baby! 🙂 But of course, my pain has got a lot worse, so I started making myself a special smoothie every day for lunch, which helps a ‘lot’! I put one banana, about 3/4 c. f.f. plain yogurt, 1/2 c. frozen cranberries and about 1 c. of frozen mixed fruit, (strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, cherries) together with 1/2 – 1 tsp. of powdered turmeric, 1 tsp. of fresh chopped ginger, 1 tsp. of cinnamon, and mix it all up in my blender and voila! Delicious, and after drinking it every day since stopping the ibuprofen, my pain is minimal. I know it’s the smoothies too that help, because if I don’t make myself one for 1 or 2 days, I can really feel it!



Last year, I had severe pain in a shoulder joint that limited my range of motion and kept me from sleeping through the night. This went on for months. After researching the benefits of turmeric, I purchased turmeric powder from an Indian store and added approximately 1/2 – 1 teaspoon of turmeric, along with black pepper and a bit of coconut oil, to my food daily. After several days, I noticed that the pain was lessening. Now? Still no pain. Amazing. Turmeric remains part of my daily diet. Forever.


For five weeks have been taking 2 ml daily of Purathrive (fka Nutritive) Liposomal Turmeric Extract, which just came on the market early this year. It has cleared up my perennial/allergic rhinitis and eliminated the need for previously scheduled surgery. Also, it has improved my memory slightly and almost eliminated my chronic heartburn.


Ruth Hi – I have an article from John Hopkins Hospital on how to adjust your diet to potentially ‘starve out’ cancer cells. Dr.keyur Patel’s photo.
Dr.keyur Patel
AFTER YEARS OF TELLING PEOPLE CHEMOTHERAPY IS THE ONLY WAY TO TRY AND ELIMINATE CANCER, JOHNS HOPKINS IS FINALLY STARTING TO TELL YOU THERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE WAY …
[Cancer Update from Johns Hopkins ]
1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.
2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person’s lifetime.
3. When the person’s immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.
4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.
5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.
6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.
7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.
8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.
9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.
10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.
11. An effective way to battle cancer is to STARVE the cancer cells by not feeding it with foods it needs to multiple.
What cancer cells feed on:
a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Note: Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in colour. Better alternative is Bragg’s aminos or sea salt.
b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soy milk, cancer cells will starved.
c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.
d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes t o nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells.
To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).
e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine. Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Water–best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.
12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines will become putrified and leads to more toxic buildup.
13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body’s killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.
14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body’s own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body’s normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.
15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor.
Anger, unforgiving and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.
16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.

"Keep your head up and always push forward. You CAN. You WILL.



"I sit here at McDonalds, drinking a sprite. Okay, it's my third sprite. A lady and a small boy stands in the corner... A man gets up and walks towards the door. She speaks. "Good morning sir, could you spare some cash so I can get a cheeseburger? All I have is enough for my son's  happy meal.' He looks around to see if anyone is watching. 'Screw you, Starve, you F....! .' He says and walks out the door. She just shakes her head and walks to the counter with the boy. She orders a happy meal for the boy. The teen at the counter tells her her card left a balance of 37 cents. She and the boy walk to her beat-up Chevy car where she digs and finds the change. She and the boy sit down with the happy meal, and she sets up his food and his tiny drink cup. 
She asks him if mommy can have a fry, to which he feeds her the one he just took a bite off of.(I kinda chuckled to myself.) I walk to the soda machine and refill my cup, Powerade this time. And the teen from the counter is refiling the napkins. I hand him my debit card. And tell him to give her 2 doubles and a large fry and a large drink on me. I tell him not to tell her its from me. I wrote a note on a napkin with my sharpie I use at work. "Keep your head up and always push forward. You CAN. You WILL. I know it will work out for you and the kid, I've been there myself!"

 He brings me my debit card. Then walks back to the counter and takes the tray of food to her. He says 'This was bought for you.' 'By who?' 'I'm not supposed to say, but it wasn't me.' He says and walks back to the counter. She reads the note on the napkin as tears start to roll down her cheeks. She fills the drink cup and starts to eat. The child trades her a chicken nugget, for a bite of the burger.(I chuckle again.) After they both finish their meal, they start to leave. They walk past me sitting here and I smile at the boy and look at her and she whispers "thank you" I whisper back "for what?" She smiles. I wink. I look down at the boy and I say have a good day Life is hard. Always be willing to make someone's life a little easier. Little things make a big impact. For any single parent stuck in a similar place... Keep your head up and always push forward. You CAN. You WILL."

WHEN IS YOUR FINANCIAL DEBT PRESCRIBED?

I was listening to a discussion on R.S.G., a local South African radio station where this topic was being discussed by financial experts were discussing this topic and the below information was shared with the listeners; Debt collectors are devising devious and illegal ways to extort cash from you, BEWARE!

All debt is prescribed after 3 years, excluding
  • A home loan
  • Municipal accounts
  • Monies owed to SARS
  • Your TV License
, which is never prescribed. What this implies is, that no one has the right to demand any prescribed debt older than 3 years.



WHAT IS PRESCRIBED DEBT?

20 June 2013

Do you have prescribed debt?

Prescribed debt can be explained as old debt that has not been acknowledged over a period of three years. More specifically, a debt is prescribed if:
  • You have not acknowledged the debt in the past three consecutive years, either in writing or verbally
  • You have not made a payment promised to make a payment to the outstanding debt amount
  • You have not been summoned to make a payment by a creditor for the debt within the past three consecutive years

What type of debt does prescription relate to?

These are examples of debt which can become prescribed if the correct rules are followed:
  • Retail accounts
  • Credit card accounts
  • Telkom accounts
  • Personal Loans / Payday Loans
  • Gym memberships
  • Cellphone accounts
  • Monies owed on vehicle finance

Not all debt prescribes in three years. A 30 year prescription period relates to;

  • A home loan
  • Municipal accounts
  • Monies owed to SARS
  • Your TV License

What does this mean for you as a consumer?

Everyone has to pay off their debt. It is wrong not to pay it off. However, it is also wrong for a debt collector or credit provider to demand payment many years after you have defaulted on the account.

If your debt has prescribed;

It has been dormant for three of more years, a debt collector cannot ask you to pay off your debt and it is against the law if they do.
The National Credit Amendment Act, published 13 March 2015, prohibits the sale and collection of Prescribed Debt.
Thus, you do not need to know about prescription and will not have to raise it as a defence in order to prevent you from having to pay for the debt.
Unless the debt collector or credit provider can prove that your debt is not prescribed, tell them to stop harassing you. It is advised that you also put this in writing, so that there is a record of it.
If they persist, request the original loan agreement/contract, proof of default, the outstanding amount and interest accrued. This should stop the debt collector from harassing you.

If your debt has not prescribed;

You have acknowledged your outstanding debt within a period of three years or have made a payment, your debt remains valid and you are accountable for paying it off.

You can make arrangements with DebtBusters to help you pay back your debt.

Simply fill in the free call back form on the right hand side and a DebtBusters financial consultant will call you back. If you are not sure whether you have prescribed debt, DebtBusters will be able to help you find out.

DAZE OF OUR LIVES!

DAZE OF OUR LIVES!


We are living in treacherous and murky times.

Most of the 40,000 visitors to my site are described in the contents of this letter, dazed and too afraid to say anything going through life, taking and giving nothing back in return. perhaps this letter will get them to respond!

The horror and atrocities, in Syria and the senseless bloodshed of countless "lambs". Yes, we live in a time of great pain and confusion. As fellow creators and dreamers of this world, we beg you not to become discouraged by what you see and hear but to use your own life as a vehicle for the construction of peace.
It’s true that the issues facing our world are complex, yet the answer to peace is simple; it begins with you. You don’t have to live in a third world country to make a difference. Each of us was put on earth with a unique mission. We are all links in a giant chain, where the weakness  of one link profoundly affects the entire chain, You matter, your actions matter.

This letter is written with the entire world in mind and my thoughts transcend all boundaries and apply to all people, regardless of who you are or what your circumstances are.

ABOVE ALL ELSE, AWAKEN TO YOUR HUMANITY

You are not alone. Even your thoughts are elements of a larger mindset as we cannot create alone. What this world needs is the culmination of the emerging humanistic awakening of the desires of many who are trying to raise their life's condition to a place where our actions are rooted in altruism and compassion.

 You cannot hide; you have to be human. Right now, no matter where you are, focus your energy on becoming the best human you can be. Focus on developing empathy and compassion. Through this process you’ll tap into a collective wealth of inspiration rooted in the complexity and curiosity of what it really means to exist on this planet.

UNDERSTAND THE TRUE NATURE OF OBSTACLES

We have this idea of failure, but it’s not real; it’s an illusion. There is no such thing as failure. What you perceive as failure is really a new opportunity, a new hand of cards, or a new canvas to create upon. In life there are unlimited opportunities. The words, “success” and “failure”, themselves, are nothing more than labels. Every moment is an opportunity. You, as a human being, have no limits; therefore infinite possibilities exist in any circumstance.

DON'T BE AFRAID TO INTERACT WITH THOSE WHO ARE DIFFERENT

The world needs more one-on-one interaction among people of diverse origins with a greater emphasis on art, culture and education. Our differences are what we have in common. We can work to create an open and continuous plane where all types of people can exchange ideas, resources, thoughtfulness and kindness. We need to be connecting with one another, learning about one another, and experiencing life with one another.

We can never have peace if we cannot understand the pain in each other’s hearts. The more we interact, the more we will come to realize that our humanity transcends all differences.

BE WARY OF YOUR EGO

Arrogance can develop within a business or culture, either from someone who believes that their status makes them more important, or those whose association with a specific creative field entitles them to some sort of superiority. Beware of ego; creativity cannot flow when only the ego is served.

WORK TOWARDS A BUSINESS WITHOUT BORDERS

The medical field sets a gleaming beacon with an organization called Doctors Without Borders. This giant effort can serve as a model for all, transcending the limitations and strategies of old business formulas which are designed to perpetuate old systems in the guise of new ones. \

This amazing international aid system is already in place and has existed for several years, discarding the antiquated system that conditions consumers to purchase only the products that are dictated to be deemed marketable, a system where money is the only means to an end. Living with such integrity can bring forth unimaginable benefits to all living creatures.

FINALLY, LIVE IN A STATE OF CONSTANT WONDER!

As we grow older, parts of our imagination tend to fade. Whether from sadness, prolonged struggle, or social conditioning, somewhere along the way people forget how to tap into the inherent magic that exists within our minds. Don’t let that part of your imagination fade away. Start a gratitude journal, made famous by Oprah Winfrey, (she attributes her entire wealth to the "counting of daily blessings")

Much of what exists is a product of someone’s imagination; treasure and nurture yours and you’ll always find yourself on the precipice of discovery.

You may be asking, how any of this lend to the creation of a peaceful society, well, It begins with a cause. Your causes create the effects that shape your future and the future of all those around you.

Be the leaders in the movie of your life. You are the director, producer, and actor. Be bold and tirelessly compassionate as you dance through the voyage that is your life.

From a letter: By Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock To the Next Generation of Artists

HOME IS WHERE THE STRESS IS!

I remember when Time Magazine called stress the “Epidemic of the 80’s” in its cover story back in 1983. I was so excited to see that Time Magazine, a popular and accepted news source, was talking about something the medical profession rarely recognized back then.

With more than 30 years of wisdom since, not much has changed in many ways: stress continues to plague us and contribute to a myriad of health challenges and I see it in my patients every day. In fact, many of them tell me that life in the 80’s seems calm in comparison to the busy pace of life now.

LONGEVITY BREAKTHROUGH UPDATE


"2016: The Year Man
Becomes Immortal?"



Could The First Person To Live To
1,000 Already Be Alive Today?
This article was aired on Fox News about an investigation titled “Who Wants to Live Forever? Scientist Sees Aging Cured,” in which they reported. . .
“. . . the first person who will live to see their 150th birthday
has already been born. And the first person to live for
1,000 years could be less than 20 years younger. ”

And Time Magazine ran a cover with the headline: “The Year Man Becomes Immortal. ”
Also, 60 Minutes aired a special they called “The Quest for Immortality. ”

There is a growing trend toward a promising future where we needn’t live in such stark fear worrying about debilitating, degenerative diseases like Heart Attacks, Strokes, Arthritis, Alzheimer's, Diabetes and more.


My friend Doctor Al Sears yesterday passed this incredible on to me about telomere breakthrough; you can catch it here

Dear Andre,
Andrew had tracked them for days out on the Timbavati savannah in South Africa. Even his native Tsonga guides were getting weary.
There wasn’t any guarantee they would see one. Only 13 of them exist in the wild.
But right as he was about to give up, he saw a rustling in the tall grass. He held his breath.
Out bounded a snow-white lioness, followed by three white lion cubs.
He told me when he saw them, he felt connected to life in a new way — all the way down to his cells.
The local tribes consider these rare white lions sacred. Legend has it they came down from the stars. And when they landed, their light transformed the old queen of the Tsonga people into a vibrant young woman again.

You might think Andrew went on this adventure after college or on vacation in his 30s. But actually, he went on this safari just last year — when he was 72 years old.
I wasn’t surprised. Andrew is a patient of mine. And we pay particular attention to a little-known mechanism in his cells. This mechanism determines how young you are biologically, regardless of your chronological age.
In other words, you can be younger than your birth certificate says you are.
And Andrew isn’t alone. His life-changing trip is just the most recent story from my patients.
The ranks of “new young” have been growing since 2010, including…
  • A 59-year-old patient who flies into my clinic from Southeast Asia twice a year — with an immune system of a 25-year-old;
  • A man whose lungs turned 24… on his 60th birthday;
  • And a 58-year-old doctor who runs 50- to 100-mile races every month.Read on... 1

THE GREAT SACRIFICE



He is...the "Nameless One" who has so many names, and yet whose names and whose very nature are unknown. He is the "Initiator," called the "GREAT SACRIFICE." For, sitting at the threshold of LIGHT, he looks into it from within the circle of Darkness, which he will not cross; nor will he quit his post till the last day of this life-cycle. Why does the solitary Watcher remain at his self-chosen post? Why does he sit by the fountain of primeval Wisdom, of which he drinks no longer, as he has naught to learn which he does not know—aye, neither on this Earth, nor in its heaven? Because the lonely sore-footed pilgrims on their way back to their home are never shure to the last moment of not losing their way in this limitless desert of illusion and matter called Earth-Life. Because he would fain show the way to that region of freedom and light, from which he is a voluntary exile himself, to every prisoner who has succeeded in liberating himself from the bonds of flesh and illusion. Because, in short, he has sacrificed himself for the sake of mankind, though but a few Elect may profit by the GREAT SACRIFICE. (I, 208)

WHAT IS THIS SUBSTANCE WHICH REDUCES INFLAMMATION?

Reverse Your Arthritis
in 30 Days or Less

Until You Fix This Little-Known Deficiency In Your Body...
You CAN'T Repair Your Arthritis, read this...





What is This Remarkable New Discovery for Managing Inflammation?





It's Celery. You know it as a spice that's often used in salads. But it's also an abundant source of a compound called 3-n-butylphthalide — or 3-n-B for short.  It's the ingredient that gives celery its characteristic flavor and odor.

Why is 3-n-B such a powerful inflammation fighter?  For one thing, it lowers the levels of uric acid in the bloodstream.  Too much uric acid tends to crystallize in the joints.  That's when you begin to feel stiffness in fingers, toes, elbows and other joints.Celery seeds produce even faster results and is available from chemists and health shops. 
Tank up on celery on weekend noon meals.

Warm regards,

DIABETICS-WHY YOU SHOULD TAKE CHROMIUM PICOLONATE



Dear Member 

I've been a diabetic type 2 for 30 years and am using the mineral, chromium picolinate as part of my sugar control. I was about to write this blog post on the subject of the hidden sugars in diabetic "safe" medicines and foods, but prefered instead to set straight the damaging recent scare stories about chromium supplements that have appeared in the press. Chromium is a mineral that many people use to help with blood sugar control and weight loss. So it was alarming to see headlines claiming that taking it could cause cancer

The source of this surprising claim is a study carried out at the University of Sydney, Australia. It used laboratory cultures of fat cells from mice – artificially kept alive in an environment far removed from a living body. These cells were bathed in the kind of chromium found in supplements, so-called chromium-III. 

Using a fancy piece of X-ray technology, the researchers found that a small proportion of the chromium-III inside the cultured cells was oxidised to a form called chromium-VI, which is known as a carcinogenic by-product of some industrial processes. Did the fat cells actually become cancerous as a result? Well, no, the study didn't run long enough to find out. 

In fact, this story it isn't really news. Way back in 1995, another study using laboratory cell cultures found that chromium picolinate appeared to cause chromosome damage, and speculated that it might be carcinogenic. But in the 20 years since then, NOT ONE STUDY has shown any real link between chromium supplements and cancer, in either humans or animals. And chromium picolinate has been taken daily by millions of people over the last 30 years, so any such problem would surely have shown up by now. 

The fact is that laboratory cell cultures are not people! 

• When people take chromium supplements, their cells are not immersed in a chromium solution, but take up as much as they need from the blood 

• People have an effective antioxidant system that could be expected to prevent the oxidation of chromium-III to chromium-VI 

• Even if chromium-VI were to be produced within cells, people have detoxification processes to remove it and an immune system to destroy any cells that might become cancerous 

So, the bottom line is – don't pay too much attention to these scaremongering media reports. There is NO evidence that chromium supplements are in any way dangerous. In fact, they often have multiple benefits, particularly for people with diabetes, as I'll explain in my next blog post.
