Community Feedback – Thank you!
Since re-starting QiGong we have had so many wonderful things come into our lives I’m sure I’m leaving some out
Basically, since starting Qi Gong with Master Ming Tong Gu and Federico Garcia, our lives have been enriched and blessed in ways too numerous and varied to fully express.  We thought we were positive and hopeful before qigong but the difference is amazing.  Heartfelt thanks to Ming Tong Gu and Federico Garcia.

How old can you go? thoughts of Dr. Roizen

August 13, 2009

“Disease prevention is not the same as wellness”  a quote from Dr. Roizen of the Cleveland Clinic.  Dr. Roizen’s Cleveland Clinic has been able to reverse chronic disease in over 80% of cases; and they did it through therapeutic lifestyle change programs.  Basically teaching people to eat right, exercise and decrease stress.  Sounds simple, but in reality most Americans have no clue how to eat right.

In the current Health Care Debate, it is refreshing to hear doctors, like Dr. Roizen talking about how we cannot just insure all our citizens with our current medical system.  Our current system is just not working.  We are currently ranked 37th in the world in health care as measured by how long we live, how many chronic diseases we deal with, and infant mortality.  Our current system is not working and to merely insure all Americans and use this same system is probably not the answer.

We need to quit poisoning ourselves with our food choices. We need to be taught how to shop for food; how to cook it and how to eat it!  This is where Therapeutic Lifestyle Change programs (TLC) or FirstLine Therapy programs (FLT) come into play.  These programs have been proven to clear chronic conditions.  You can google either of those terms and see research from the National Institutes of Health on how to reverse chronic disease or go to http://www.stopchronicdisease.com for information.

We have TLC or FLT programs that can teach you how to put these ideas to work for you.  Twelve week programs to get you on the track to doing what Dr. Roizen recommends to reverse chronic disease and live better, longer, healthier lives.

You can listen to Dr. Roizen’s comments at http://blog.cleveland.com/medical/2008/05/does_roizens_vision_of_longevi.html

and can get information on our TLC or FLT programs at http://missionhillspt.com/flt-wellness-program

Why Nutrasweet (aspartame) is to be avoided at all costs

May 25, 2009

Hi everyone,  There is so much data now on why Nutrasweet (aspartame) is to be avoided, it’s amazing it is still on the market.  I found a blog of someone with a diagnosis of fibromyalgia who is going to get off Nutrasweet and see what changes she notices.  I would recommend watching the movie “sweet misery” http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-7757697555859118501 is a documentary on how nutrasweet was developed and how the FDA pushed it through despite all research linking it to brain tumors and siezures.  It’s disturbing but if any of your friends or family members have neurological symptoms please get them off this stuff.

Here is the account of the woman trying to get off nutrasweet http://thegirlfromtheghetto.wordpress.com/2008/01/30/aspartame-poisoning-could-my-diet-coke-be-giving-me-fibromyalgia/

Hopefully she also sees the research on gluten sensitivity and it’s relationship to pain syndromes. www.missionhillspt.wordpress.com and http://theburnhamreview.com/Mission_Hills_Gluten.php

gluten sensitivity – our next newsletter

October 19, 2008

hi everyone!

our next newsletter is going to be on Gluten sensitivity – an emerging epidemic – how to test for it and why it’s important to know if your symptoms are caused by gluten. I am compiling the science and clinical findings as well as the Integrative Manual Therapy perspective on it. We have been able to solve many chronic auto-immune problems with a gluten free diet and integrative manual therapy to the colon, specifically the cecum as it relates to gluten sensitivity and allergic reactions.

I am looking for people’s experiences as well. We are looking through our success stories of our patients and I would like other people’s experiences of their illness and issues and how gluten free diet helped them. Their personal path toward health using the gluten free diet would be great to see.

Please, if you have a story about your own history with gluten sensitivity could you forward that to me at

ralph@missionhillspt.com

In my practice, I’ve found this to be an emerging problem over the past 3 years and I want to get the information and help out to the people who need it.

thanks in advance for all your help with this.

my best to you all
