Keeping baggage from the past will leave no room for happiness in the future.


Hello followers,

Good morning, happy Hump Day!

Starting on a new series, what is holding you back?

As I piece together through my posts, the power of healing; Dan and I genuinely believe that keeping healthy is much more than keeping your body cells happy.

It is also keeping a healthy mindset.

Throughout the blog, we have discussed functional medicine methods, pollution, treatments, keeping a healthy lifestyle through meditation, food, and exercise.

However, there is another important secret in keeping our body cells happy and that is our minds.

Whenever we go through a disaster, we tend to be under stress and our minds are not being used properly.

Therefore, our choices are being compromised and sometimes we do not make the right decisions.

We have been searching but there are very few websites that talk about your mindset, while going through a disease.

It is all about treating the body.

So, we decided to share information that heals your overall health.

The first question should be what is holding you back?

Remembering back as a child-

Well, Sherry, what is holding you back?

My dad's words echoed through the head of my first-grade self as my parents looked down at me, letting me know I just was not living up to my potential.

Are any of us, though?

Couldn't you have done just a little bit more today before you decided to read this?

Shouldn't you have been finishing that thing you have been putting off?

What stops any of us from living up to our full potential?

It is not limiting beliefs!

The idea of limiting beliefs has been around for decades.

It is common to come up against a new struggle or even a new opportunity and have a moment of doubt.

What if I am not good enough?

A common question that is asked is, what are your limiting beliefs?

Most people have them, but most do not know what they are.

In fact, if you were able to simply blurt out your limiting beliefs, you would probably be in a much better space to wrestle them to the ground.

Instead, we need to look at outcomes and then backtrack to the rules you took on.

These become your mindset.

Tomorrow, How to Spot What’s Holding You Back and Then Let It Go.

Since this is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, every post this week; I will share something that I have written or done in the past that has to do with this very topic.



Written by Dan; 2012

Before I start with my situation, Its October Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

I cannot express enough to do your homework and research all

It is not your doctor’s choice, but yours.

Do you want cut, burn or chemo or do something less invasive.

Either way it will cost you, with insurance or without.

Insurance usually does not cover all the process.

I am glad my wife and I made the choice we did.

First, I would like to say that I am recovering from a hernia operation and was unable to blog until now.

Since it is now football season, I am going to compare my life and the situation to a football game and at this time I have made it to the first down.

The second down is the day that I had my biopsy.

It was not that long until they called me back and the doctor prepared me for the procedure in his office.

He gave me a local and started the nightmare.

If anyone ever had a prostate biopsy, you now that it is not something that you look forward to.

Well, I did not think it would ever end but the doctor took twelve tissue samples and replied all finished.

The nurse came in and stood me up~ the room was moving, and I was feeling like I was going to pass out.

She helped me back down and got a cold cloth to put on my forehead and gave me a cup of water.

The doctor stuck his head back in the room to say that sometimes this happens, and I could stay until I felt comfortable in leaving; but the office closes in about twenty minutes.

Sherry came in the room and asked the nurse for some coke for a sugar rush, which will help me not feel so spacey.

It did the trick; I was ready to go home.

We made another appointment a week later for the results.

I felt like I went a couple of yards and then Third Down!

This time we waited about twenty minutes before I was called back.

The doctor came in the room with his computer and said, you are here for the results of your biopsy ~


Well, he came right out and said I have prostate cancer.

You know all my patients have this shock look on their face when I tell them this, but I always tell them the procedures and percentages of what can be done.

This was not new to us for about two years ago we went through this with Sherry.

He proceeded to go on with all the procedures and stated that two out of the twelve samples were cancerous.

He gave us information and stated that he would like to see me back within two weeks.

I looked at all the info and its cut, burn and chemo.

Not what I want.

I called Sherry’s doctor in Mexico; Dr Perez and he spent time on the phone explaining the different procedures that were there and the one they offer which

is best for me.

It is much like the one Sherry had with her stem cells.

The process before going to Mexico will require some current blood work, for them to review before treatment to begin.

Meanwhile, I had my left hernia repaired last Thursday.

The good old American way, I had to go to another doctor, for my family doctor and the urologist could not treat me for this condition.

I had to go to a general surgeon.

The big day is finally over, and healing process is starting.

The doctor could not do laparoscopic; he had to cut me open.

The stitch mark is about three inches long.

It has been a slow recovery.

The tackles were a hard hit, but I will get back up to fight for a touchdown.

My plans are, once my hernia repair heals, I will be going to Mexico for the final play the touchdown.

At that time, I will continue with my fight with the journey to completion.

The last two weeks we posted on, self-empowerment, self-control, renewable vitality, emotion mastery, conscious communication along with smart focus, learning & adaptability, and constructive thinking.

Simple Ways to Find Out What Life is About-

Our Final Thoughts-

The complexities and nuances of a good life are so profound that they take an entire lifetime of exploration.

Both of ourselves and the world around us, to even begin to formulate an answer.

And even then, we have typically only scratched the surface.

When you break it down, the meaning of life is so deep and valuable, it is worth chasing.

Even if the end goal is only to catch a glimpse of the glory that keeps us all moving forward day after day.

OCTOBER 5th, Dan, and I thought on continuing this segment with the series with some fun; What is it about October that is so significant during this month?

Since it is Wednesday, halfway through the work week, this holiday is a fantastic way to celebrate this milestone.

National Get Funky Day – October 5, 2022

Since October 5 is always National Get Funky Day, follow orders!

As One Nation Under a Groove, we have a collective opportunity to pay homage to the power and majesty of The Funk.

We are not talking funk as in depressing, but funk as in get-happy-and-celebrate-life!

National Get Funky Day is the brainchild of Funky Town Fitness, a fitness center in St. Augustine, Florida.

After Hurricane Matthew slammed into Florida, a group of Funky Town Fitness folks assembled to create National Get Funky Day every year on October 5 to help people break free of their comfort zones.

Today, make it funky anyway you want for as long as you want!

Time is precious and is priceless, so Dan and I will continue each day to pull from a box of 365 inspirational quotes; one quote and share with you.

Today is:


Today Dan and I will be continuing the book, Ten-Minute Relaxation, For Mind and Body by Jennie Harding.

Whenever you are feeling under pressure, ten minutes is all you need to relax totally, using tools that are always with you; your senses.

This book is packed full of wonderfully simple ideas and exercises for using sight, taste, smell, hearing, and touch and that vital sixth sense of intuition to rebalance your energies and bring you back into harmony with the natural world around you.

Identify your favorite sensory relaxation solutions and combat that stress!

Per Dan and my experience this is another component in keeping ourselves healthy, meditation.

By using your five senses, you can learn to relax in just ten minutes.




Using herbs and spices can add a whole new dimension to cooking.

As a rule, only a pinch of an herb or spice is needed to begin with; over seasoning will not taste good.

Herbs tend to have a calming and soothing effect on your digestion, spices will warm you up,

particularly during the winter months.

Starting tomorrow, Dan and I share some 10-minute winter pick me ups,

As I ponder over all that I have learned, I have come to find that we all have our own blueprint.

Our bodies are precious and there are many components in taking care of them.

Throughout the blog, Dan and I have related the separate ways through body, heart, and soul.

It is all about power of knowledge and learning to take care of yourself, keeping your cells happy.

Our immune system is one of the key factors in keeping healthy.

It is important to know how it works!

Germs and Viruses????

Continuing from yesterday, Similar examples of lowered catalase in both humans and animals that permitted otherwise harmless germs to act pathogenically to produce different disease symptoms were given.

And as the title of the book indicates, the importance of trace minerals in the prevention of cancer was emphasized.

Regarding tuberculosis Voisin said, the lungs of each one of us are inhabited by millions of tuberculosis bacilli, which we manage to accommodate quite well.

They live there very peacefully without delivering frenzied attacks against our cells.

Why then, do they suddenly thrust themselves upon one of our organs (most often the lungs) and make us tuberculosis sufferers?

Voisin then went on to demonstrate how defective nutrition is the underlying problem, the milk from tuberculous cows having no bearing on the matter because the human victim's bacillus is already present, with or without the milk.

As for the tuberculous cows, they do not have to be destroyed; like their human counterparts all they need is better pastures and conditions.

That healthy humans are every bit as disease resistant as healthy farm animals is borne out by an extract from the book Immune for Life by Arnold Fox, MD, of Los Angeles, former Assistant

Professor of Medicine, University of California, Irvine; many years ago, as a resident in Internal Medicine at Los Angeles County Hospital, I oversaw the adult infectious-disease ward.

For ten to fifteen hours a day, I was exposed to just about every infectious illness you can imagine.

These patients had tuberculosis, meningitis, the very deadly septicemia, and other dangerous diseases.

They coughed and sneezed on me; I got their blood, sweat and even feces on my hands.

But I did not catch any of their diseases.

My doctor within kept me in perfect health.

Sometime later I was transferred from the infectious-disease ward and into surgery.

Months later I came down with meningitis, a potentially deadly infection of the covering of the brain.

I had not been near anyone with meningitis who could have given me the disease.

What happened was that I was working double shifts, going to every class and

lecture offered and moonlighting as well.

I had run my immune system down to the ground.

The experience of Dr Fox is not unique, being common to all doctors, nurses, and other hospital staff all around the world, and the great wonder of medicine is that Pasteur's germ theory of disease holds on in peoples' minds the way it does.

Continue tomorrow-
