Is Coffee Good or Bad for YOU?

Is coffee good or bad for YOU?  The answer is YES.  Huh?

The health benefits of coffee have been getting a lot of press lately, particularly studies that have shown that people who drink up to three cups a day may have lower rates of cancer – particularly skin, liver, and prostate cancer.

Coffee may also protect against Parkinson’s disease and type 2 diabetes,  It may stem the onset of Alzheimer’s and decrease the incidence of depression in women.

It helps with mental alertness and performance, helps keep you awake, and contains antioxidants,

That sounds good.

But Coffee is Not Good for Everybody.

coffee   Some people should not drink coffee.

If you have ringing in the ears.  Tinnitus.  Coffee can make your condition worse.  Give it up for two weeks – no decaf either – and see if there is a difference.  (Aspirin also can make it worse).  If you must have caffeine, drink tea in moderation.

If you have stiff muscles, fibromyalgia, or muscle aches and pains – try giving up coffee for two weeks to test the results.  It is not the caffeine in the coffee, it is the alkaloids, so decaf is no better, and stronger coffee is worse.  If you must have caffeine, drink tea in moderation.

Caffeine with Tylenol (Paracetamol, acetaminophen ) may cause liver damage.

Carpal Tunnel Self-Help Program Earns Five Star Rating

The Carpal Tunnel Master and Beyond program earned Clickbank’s highest rating based on exceptional customer satisfaction. The program shows how to identify and fix various causes of numbness and pain in the hands and fingers.

Hilma Volk, a licensed massage therapist since 1991, created the online video program “Carpal

Tunnel Master and Beyond” two years ago. But really it was almost 20 years in the making. She began developing techniques to use on herself when she started having hand problems. She then expanded her knowledge to cover numerous occupational and recreational causes of numbness in the fingers.

Carpal Tunnel Master and Beyond is the only carpal tunnel product to earn the five-star rating from Clickbank.com, the Internet’s largest marketplace for digital products. Clickbank’s rating is based on customer satisfaction combined with a rarely used guarantee policy. Praise like the following from customer Christy Pierce is common, “I have been in so much pain for months….Shoulders, arms, elbows and hands, that I was beginning to think I would never have any relief…. Thank you. I never buy anything like this on the internet, but how thankful I am that I did this time.”

Many think Carpal Tunnel syndrome can only be “cured” with steroid injections or surgery. “Not so,” says expert Hilma Volk. Her unique program addresses the potential sources of hand problems. Hilmacontinued, “Most programs and doctors only focus on the wrist. They often aren’t aware how muscle imbalances in the forearm and elsewhere along the nerve pathway can create pinching of the nerves – resulting in numbness, tingling, or pain in the hand and fingers”.

Program user Dale M-W wrote, “Hilma empowers you. Carpal Tunnel Master and Beyond videos show you how to tell where your problem is coming from and how to fix it. She clearly explains muscle imbalance and demonstrates self-massage techniques, stretches, strengthening exercises, and more.”

The core part of the program uses no hands or minimal hands self-massage techniques. “These are very specific techniques and not at all like ‘slide and glide’ massages that usually people think of.” While the Carpal Tunnel Master program includes stretching and strengthening exercises, the emphasis is on self-massage first. Hilma explains, “Stretching takes longer to produce results and sometimes can be counterproductive. Strengthening should be done only after the muscle balance has been restored.” She warns that anti-inflammatory drugs, “turn off the ‘engine warning light’ and actually interfere with the natural healing processes.” The program focuses on safer ways.

As mentioned earlier, carpal tunnel syndrome is only one of many problems caused by repetitive use or structural imbalances. This is “the Beyond” in Carpal Tunnel Master and Beyond. The tight muscles that cause these problems cause other pains. Results are revealed in glowing customer comments:

“Your information was right on target. Now I know that I had carpal tunnel syndrome, ulnar nerve entrapment, problems with the pectoralis minor, brachial plexus and scalene muscles. I know because I ordered the program, followed the video instructions and saw results. To be sure I was doing all I needed to do, I visited my long time physical therapist who gave an enthusiastic thumbs up to this program. The very first time I worked on the pain running along my arms I found relief right away and didn’t have to work on them again for several days. Thank you so much Hilma for making a lasting contribution to my physical well being!” – Pam Bruni

“I wanted you to know how much your video helped me. I had numb fingers in my right hand for several months and was finding it very hard to do my work as a bookbinder… Out of frustration I searched the Internet and found your excellent website. I did all of the exercises you suggested and showed and it worked. Thank you so much for mounting this useful information. It’s hard to believe that the numbness started under my arm… I felt it in my shoulder blade area. I never would have figured it out if it weren’t for your videos.” – Mindy Dubansky

Clickbank.com began their rating system in 2013 to improve customer satisfaction. Carpal tunnel Master and Beyond has been available online for two years. The videos may be viewed online or downloaded.

Hilma Volk is an Oregon Licensed Massage Therapist (#3776) who practices in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.

Lose Weight Thinking Like a Fat Person? Not.

I’m 62 (and a half) years old and I was always mystified as to how people “struggled” with weight loss.

And many of these same people were successful in areas where I was not.  Why were they successful in financial areas or making friends easily when I didn’t?  Being skinny was such a no brainer for me.  If you burn more caloried than you eat, you have to lose weight. Duh!

No, I have never been overweight, and NO it is not my metabolism.  I have told others that I know the secret of being thin.  They ask how and I say “watch what fat people do and don’t do it”.

And there is truth in that.  Because if did what they did, if I ate what they ate and always took the elevator instead of one flight of steps and never walked anywhere, I would be fat too.

But here is the thing…

Fat people think differently than thin people.  And rich people think differently than poor people and differently than middle class people.  And people in successful relationships think differently than people who struggle in their relationships.  And cheerful people think differently than those who think negatively.

We have programs about everything running in the background of our brain.  Our subconscious dictates what we do.

You can lose weight on almost any diet program.  Some are more healthy than others.  But if you don’t make the change in your subconscious thinking, you will gain it all back.

The worst programs are the ones that tell you you don’t have to change your lifestyle.  Just take these pills and shakes and you don’t need exercise and you can eat anything you want.  Why are these the worst?  Yes you will lose weight if you follow this very unnatural program, but You are still thinking like a fat person and you will gain it all back when you stop using their stuff.

We have programs in our minds for just about everything.  Some are more about physical activities, some are more emotional, some are more mental.  Some we developed over a lifetime.  Some are newer.

Have you ever watched a person who never danced very well try to learn to dance?  Perhaps you?  Every placement of the foot is very conscious and awkward.  Yea, been there.  I know I was consciously saying to myself, stuff like “right, left, step behind, quick, quick,” whatever.  But if you watch good dancers gliding along the dance floor, they don’t consciously think about it, they just do it.  They have a program for the waltz or the two-step. And the next dance they learn will be easier to learn, because of subconscious programing.

So what does that have to do with weight loss?

You will never keep weight off if you have a fat program running.  And changing a lifetime of programing is difficult to do.

The easiest way to change your programing is with hypnosis. 

There is a hypnosis clinic in a nearby city that charges hundreds of dollars for a series of sessions, and they have great results.  A local community college offered a non-credit series of 5 group sessions for a much cheaper rate. A massage client of mine enrolled in the evening college class.  She rushed in and barely made it to the first session, was out of town for the second session, and still noticed that she didn’t have the food cravings anymore.

An at home program is not only more affordable and convenient.  But you can always listen again if you find youself slipping. 

The most highly rated and affordable program I have found is the Power of Thin by Clinical Hypnotherapist, Steve G. Jones and Consumer Health Maverick, Frank Mangano,

I have a few hypnosis mp3s that I recently purchased from Steve G. Jones.  They won’t cause you to do anything weird like fall in love with the next bald person you meet.  And frankly it will probably take multiple listenings to change your years of programing.  But it is the quickest way to put a install a new program in your subconscious mind, just as a new program on your computer changes what your computer can do.

This weight loss program is not about dieting.  Diets don’t work. Lifestyle changes work.  You get 5 hypnosis mp3s plus 6 reports on healthy eating and what foods to really avoid. 

How many times have you seen someone lose a lot of weight, put out a diet book, and then they later gain it all back?  Why?  They are still thinking like a fat person. 

Well, I’ve rattled on long enough without listing all the health reasons why losing weight and exercising is important.  But it does not need to be a struggle.
