Steve Jobs…Health Nut or too Smart for his Own Good?

appleI am famous for saying “sometimes people can be SO SMART that they’re stupid”.  Steve Jobs was clearly one of the most brilliant technological visionaries of all times.  His diligence and ability to build, not only the right product at the right time but to surround himself with the right team to pull it all off, is nothing short of genius.  However, when it comes to health and nutrition its an entirely different story.

Apparently “Apple” was duly named by Steve Jobs.  He took “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” to a whole new level.    Steve Jobs didn’t just eat an apple a day…apparently he ate them all day.  Steve Jobs  followed a “fruitarian” diet with some minor modifications (surprise!)…He is said to have eaten ONLY FRUIT FOR SEVERAL YEARS prior to his death.  

It doesn’t take a rocket-scientist to know that the body needs more than just fruit to function and that an overdose of fruit-only will almost assuredly lead to pancreatic issues.   Although some give credit to Steve’s protocol for “extended life” with pancreatic cancer, others will suggest that his pancreatic cancer was not the “bad kind” (they all sound bad to me) and that he likely could have reversed his condition if he had been willing to take the advice from qualified nutritionist and adjust his diet to the needs of his body.  I guess he thought that he was smarter than that.  That’s not a surprise.

“Steve Job’s Fruit Diet Put Ashton Kutcher in the hospital”

Hollywood  got a up-close look at a fruit only diet when Ashton Kutcher tried to emulate Steve Job’s unique diet in preparation for the filming of the Jobs movie.  Kutcher’s attempt to mirror Jobs backfired when he ended up in the hospital with severe pancreatic problems within a few weeks of adopting this diet.

Sounds to me like Jobs took EVERYTHING over the top.  It’s too bad.  This genius died a relatively young man.  It’s a shame he wasn’t willing to listen to “stupid people”.   I think he could have learned a few things from us.

I Used to be a “Free Radical” – Now They Are My Enemy!

free-radicalsI lived a worry-free life for a very long time.  I didn’t give a second thought to organic eating or a wellness protocol.  In fact, I made jokes about both.   It wouldn’t have occurred to me that “oxidative stress” had anything to do with the human body.  I was a “free radical” with good health and not a care in the world.   Then something strange happened….I woke up when I started losing my health.  I’m fortunate that it didn’t take a major health crisis to jar me awake!    When I opened my eyes (and mind) I learned that there are HUGE health issues all around me that have little to do with age and everything to do with lifestyle and environmental exposure!

I learned that the cancer rate in America is 1 in every 2 males and 1 in every 3 females and that it is no respecter of age.  As the mother of 2 boys and 2 girls and the grandmother to a 22 month old grandson the odds are too scary to ponder.  Cancer is wreaking havoc on our world and, from the outside looking in, it appears like we’re much more focused on a C U R E than we are about prevention.  Of course, that could just be the “free radical” in me speaking up!

I learned that the rate of autism is off-the-charts striking 1 in every 50 children across America.  As a military mom I am extremely troubled by the fact that these rates are HIGHER on military bases!   Hmm…looks like an environmental problem to me!   There goes that “free radical” spirit again!

I learned that “Free Radicals” were not a good thing and that if I didn’t do something to make changes in my own life, and lead by example for the next generation(s),  these free radicals could literally be the  slow death of us all.

I learned that just by changing my water I could win the battle against free radicals.  Now I drink water that has anti-oxidation properties that are 700,000 times more powerful than a glass of orange juice.  Needless to say, I drink as much as I can and I’m sure that my family does the same.  Changing our water has been the single most positive step we’ve taken in our battle for wellness.  That was easy!  After all, we’re all drinking water anyway…it only makes sense to drink water that fights free radicals!

It’s painful to wake up and to assume responsibility BUT now I’m FREE to be RADICAL about our current health crisis and, in keeping with the personality of my younger years, I intend to be bold in the fight.  So…if I step on your toes from time-to-time it’s probably best to just push the delete button.  I’m not going anywhere and I’m not going to stop fighting for the next generation.  After all, I have a responsibility to “save” them from other “free radicals” like me too clueless to speak the truth.

Our Troops Fight For You… Will You Fight For Them?

Erin Brockovich is rallying on behalf of Camp Lejeune victims of decades-long  toxic water contamination and their right for proper health care for the damage done as a result of their exposure.  What are YOU doing to fight for our troops?

The Federal Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease shows that the decades-long case of drinking water contamination at Camp Lejeune is “one of the worst on record in the history of America”.

Tap water supplied to base housing contains toxic chemicals and known carcinogens including benzenevinyl chloride and trichloroethylene at levels that significantly exceed “legal limits”.  Veterans and their families have been poisoned at Camp Lejeune (and God knows where else) since 1948.  The civilian parallel for this type of damage would be  multiple life prison sentences but since this is a government “oversight” we’ll excuse it as a big mistake.  Tell that to the thousands of cancer patients coming out of Camp Lejeune for the past 50 years!  Veterans, fathers, sons, wives, children, grandchildren.  Is that any way to treat those willing to fight for you and for me?

“We knew the evidence was damning – now it’s historic,” said environmental activist Erin Brockovich. “Policymakers need to wake up and realize that Camp Lejeune is just one of the many tragedies playing out in our communities across the country.”

Of course Marine Corps officials attempted to deny wrongdoing, contending there is insufficient “reliable scientific evidence” to link the contamination to illnesses suffered by former base residents and their families.  The proof is in the epidemic level of disease and trace levels of documented toxic contaminants in all those tested.  I wonder what the Marine officials drink?

The fact that Erin Brockovich (and the White House) drinks Kangen Water should be a motivating factor for you.   Not tap water…not bottled water…not filtered Brita water…not “dead” reverse osmosis water or some wanna-be ionizer but Kangen Water.  The word Kangen means “return to origin”. ..the way water was before we managed to screw it up.  The way God created it.  Try it sometime.  Your body will thank you for it.

Bottoms up America.  If you trust your water source then perhaps the chemicals have already gone to your brain.  Why would you trust a system that has hidden this deadly contamination from our troops and their families since 1948?   Hmm….
