30 Day Weight Loss Challenge

The next 30 days can and will transform your life, if you let it.  The goal of the 30 day challenge is to not only to change and improve your diet, but also implement other healthy lifestyle factors as well.  We will encourage you to participate in an exercise programme and visit the website frequently to get diet and fitness tips.

The dietary plan is primarily for those with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high triglycerides, weight loss resistance, metabolic conditions such as thyroid disorders and even those with cancer.  It is important to note that the 30 day challenge is not a treatment for a condition; it’s an overall health improvement.

Chronic disease has been linked to irritation and inflammation of the body.  The primary dietary contributor to systemic inflammation is sugar.  Eliminating sugar is the primary goal of the 30 day challenge.  Eliminating sugar will reduce inflammation and allow the body to heal better.  We have many patients that were once diabetic, no longer have diabetes in less than 30 days.

Exercise.   When people think of exercise, it is generally not what we are recommending.  High intensity, short duration exercises have been shown to be far superior in normalizing systemic functions and healing within the body.  We will show you how.

The first step is creating a new mindset.  This may sound easy, or hard.  Regardless, a change is needed if you are looking to change your present situation.  We set goals the S.M.A.R.T way:

Specific: A specific goal has a much greater chance of being accomplished than a general goal. Answer the following:

*Who:      Who is involved?          *What:     What do I want to accomplish?
*Where:    Identify a location.      *When:     Establish a time frame, 30 days right?
*Which:    Limitations.                   *Why:      Your BIG why!

Measurable:  Establish concrete criteria for measuring progress toward the attainment of each goal you set.
When you measure your progress, you will stay on track, reach your goals, and experience the exhilaration of achievement that will inspire you on to continued effort.

Attainable: When you set specific goals, you will start to figure out ways to make them happen. You will develop new attitudes, abilities, skills, and financial capacity to reach the goals. When setting goals, make sure you are willing to do what it takes to get it done.

Realistic:  Realistic simply means, are you physically and mentally able to achieve the goal?  A goal can be both high and realistic; you are the only one who can decide what your goal should be.  Why do you think we start with 30 days?  You can do this!

Timely: A goal needs to be grounded within a specific time frame. With no time frame there’s no sense of urgency. If your goal is to lose 10 lbs, when do you want to lose it by? “Someday” won’t work, “tomorrow” never comes.  Do it now!

You’re almost ready!  You are now willing to take self responsibility for your health.  We are very excited for your choice to participate in the 30 day challenge and look forward to motivating, inspiring and encouraging you every step along the process.  If there are additional topics or resources that will help you and others achieve your goals, let us know.  We are here for you!

Can we now cure HIV in newborns?

Doctors are reporting that a child born with HIV that was put on an unusually aggressive treatment regimen has been functionally cured of the infection. Using the most sensitive HIV testing available, they were able to find only trace amounts of HIV "particles" but no virus capable of replicating, the research team reported.

"If there is a trial that shows this can happen again, then this will be very important," said Dr. Karin Nielsen, a pediatrician who specializes in infectious diseases at UCLA's David Geffen School of Medicine. "You'll be able to treat people very intensively and reverse the disease."

The news provides no answers for adults living with HIV but it can be a landmark victory in the health of future generations. Every year, 300,000 to 400,000 babies are born infected with HIV according to Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute for Allergies and Infectious Diseases.

The treatment consisted of giving the newborn a three-drug…

Non-communicable diseases ravaging the poorest

The convergence of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and infectious diseases (IDs) in low- and middle-income countries presents major challenges to the world’s poorest and most neglected groups of people. NCDs continue to escalate and cause hundreds of billions of dollars of loss annually despite aggressive lifestyle campaigns.

A NCD is a medical condition or disease that is non-infectious and non-transmissible amongst people. NCDs may be chronic diseases of long duration and slow progression, or they may result in more rapid death such as some types stroke and heart attacks. Unknowingly to most, NCDs also include autoimmune diseases, many cancers, asthma, diabetes, chronic kidney disease and many more.

Most Low- to middle income countries has dual disease burdens of NCDs and IDs including tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS and parasitic diseases. Unfortunately, experts, institutions and policies that support prevention and control of these two overarching disease categories have very limited int…
