Ultra Longevity

I discovered that Dr. Mark Liponis was discussing his new book at Town Hall last night (all the way from Lenox, MA). I gathered a few friends to view the Corporate Medical Director of Canyon Ranch (and dear friend of mine) where he talked about what accelerates aging, disease and the loss of health (he is really quite brilliant). WOW. His new book focuses on organizing (not boosting) the immune system to be in harmony with ourselves. Basically the immune system (white blood cells) contain quite an arsenal to attack disease, germs, stress, etc. This arsenal, if unleashed on our bodies (rather than infections, etc) when we don't engage in socialization/love (stress), poor breathing (stress), over eating (stress), not enough sleep (stress)...this system attacks us (leading to cancer, diabetes, etc.). This book is so ahead of its time....I highly recommend his new book as his last book (Ultra Prevention) was one of the most simplistic, yet comprehensive books on wellness and health I have EVER read (and I've read many). Buy it here!

Invoke a Prayer

Carolyn Myss is a medical intuitive and an expert on energy medicine and she is brilliant. Dr. Sahni at Canyon Ranch sent me her 9 CD series on Energy Anatomy by Myss. I listened to the entire work on my plane ride home from Italy and it really caused me to change my thinking in life. One intentional prayer that Carolyn posted on her website (to say each morning) was the following...and I provide it here as a prayer for two very special friends (one here in Seattle and another in Toronto) that have close family members dealing with cancer:

I am committed to feeling a bond with each person I meet, to respecting my own integrity and honor, to living within the energy of love and compassion and returning to that energy when I don't feel it, to making wise and blessed choices with my will, to maintaining perceptions of wisdom and non-judgment, to release the need to know why things happen as they do, and not to project expectations over how I want this day to be and how I want others to be. And finally, my last prayer, 'to trust the Divine'. And with that I bless my day with gratitude and love.

Jet Laggard

So I came home last night, after just a half glass of wine, long day and and having managed to function on just 3-4 hours of sleep for the last 3 nights.

I was so tired, I opted to just rest my limbs on my bed for a second before I motivated to get into my jammies and brush my teeth. Well, I woke at 8am by the vibration of my cell phone that was under my bum, still fully clothed and with a black cat on my chest. I think someone could have done odd things to me last night and I would have never known.

Well...I hope I'm finally in this time zone.

YouTube Preview

Here is a preview of the video for this years trip; I had to do something with my insomnia!

Congrats Bettini

So I have returned from Italia just last night. Yup, I was up at 1am and still going strong here now that its 7am. I suspect in about 5 hours I'll be down for the count. So...I was getting txt message updates on the world cycling championships in Stuttgart from Mr. Guy Tucker, who was (reportedly) sitting on a plane (First Class mind you) in Frankfurt while I had 12" of leg room on my Air France Flight from Paris to Seattle. So...I found the picture of the world champ on his victory yesterday in Germany...and this picture of Guy. I ask only one question....
Have you ever seen them together? I mean Guy says he's never been to Italy before this trip...and he did hurry off yesterday morning for a flight to Germany....coincidence? I don't think so.
