Success Quotes

The primary price of success is DISCOMFORT.

SUCCESS is the willingness to bear pain.

Failure is never quite so frightening as REGRET.

Exercise Reverses Aging

Six months of exercising can reverse age-associated decline in physical condition, according to a new study in September's Circulation.

The study showed even older people who have not stayed fit could benefit from exercise and improve their cardiovascular function.

However, the study also concluded the health benefits of exercise are lost relatively quickly, so "exercise must be a lifelong habit - like brushing your teeth or taking a shower."

As an example of how quickly physical condition deteriorates, twenty-year-olds were given twenty days of bed rest. The negative effect on their cardiovascular health was equivalent to thirty years of aging.

However, an exercise program of moderate intensity was able to reverse the loss of cardiovascular capacity, returning the group to normal.

We Do Not Get Sick By Chance

Your body has a tremendous ability to heal itself. The catch? You must give your body a chance to do so.

Your body does not get sick by chance. You get sick because you violate the laws under which your body was designed to operate. The main area which most people violate is in the type of fuel - food - they put into their body.

You were created and designed to live primarily on raw fruits and vegetables. Any deviation from these foods will compromise your health by:

- Creating deficiencies

- Putting toxins into the body

Your body is the orchestrator of its own health. But it must have the proper materials in order to carry out this God-given gift.
