Weight Reduction Program Day 4

Hello everyone.  It has been a couple of days since the disastrous Monday but things are looking up.  My wife has taken charge of the kitchen and is preparing the foods.  Honestly, I would have quit if it wasn’t for her, so thank you Lucinda.  I am eating juiced foods in the morning, with salad in the afternoon.  Lucinda made me a terrific carrot soup.  Now you wouldn’t think that this would be good, but she added avocado, ginger, salt and cayenne pepper and it was surprisingly very good.  I have not checked how much weight I have lost but I have already noticed my jeans are a little looser and my ring on my finger is looser.  I didn’t know that I could hold fat in my finger.lol.  I have been doing weights and I have noticed that I do not have the stamina I used to, so I did add a little protein to my diet.  We have a party on Sunday, so temptation will be great.  Wish me luck!

Talk to you next Monday with an update.

First Day of Weight Reduction Program

Yesterday was the first day of my Weight Reduction Program and it did not go as planned. l purchased the foods I needed this past weekend but I did not get everything ready the night before.  Poor Planning!  Woke up on Monday, rushed to make my juice for the morning and my salad for lunch.  Finished with 15 minutes to spare before I had to leave for work, tried the drink and it was Horrible!!!  Put to much ginger in the juice.  Could not put it down, so it went down the drain.  Oh well, mistake learned.  At lunch was hungry, but I decided to go and work out first.  50 minutes of weights and 10 minutes of cardio.  Went back to the office ready for my terrific salad.  How could I screw up a salad right?  The first bite said it all.  I mixed up the greens and put in a bitter lettuce, don’t remember what it was but it was terrible.  So I picked thru the salad, ate the tomatoes and the avacado.  And I hate avacados.  I should of known, me and the kitchen are like oil and water.  Busy day at the office and by the time I got home I was extremely grumpy.  Looked thru the kitchen, and was just irritated because  my wife had made a terrific dinner on Sunday and I was staring at the left-overs.  So my wife whipped up a nice salad for me to eat and I devoured it.  Checked my weight this morning and I had lost 3 pounds.  Will see how this day goes, but I am sure it cannot go as bad as yesterday.

Until tomorrow,

You Are Slowly Losing Your Rights! Read on…..

New legislation in Arizona is going to require you to see a medical doctor if you do not want to have your kids vaccinated.  Currently in Arizona, if you do not want your kids vaccinated, all you have to do is sign a personal waiver, and this will allow your kids to go to any public school, and legally gives you a waiver for no vaccinations.  As parents are becoming more aware of the dangers of vaccinations, the number of parents that have signed the waiver has doubled in the past ten years.  My guess is that pharmaceutical and medical doctors are losing a lot of money because of this.  Sue Brage, the executive director of the Arizona Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics states: ” the intent is to start curbing the number of people who get exemptions.”  The law being proposed is by Rep.  Cecil Ash, R-Mesa, who introduced this bill at the last minute, just minutes before the deadline for new bills.  This law would require a parent who does not want to have their child immunized, go to a medical doctor to have the waiver exemption.  The bill does not allow parents to go to a Chiropractic physician, a Naturopathic physician or any other physician who generally does not agree with the current allopathic model of health.  Now lets be realistic.  Does anyone honestly feel that they could get the right guidence for their concerns about vaccinations when the only doctor they are allowed to see is one who thinks that vaccinations should be mandatory and who directly benefits financially from this decision.

This is just the beginning of Arizonans losing their rights.  What next?  If we do not vaccinate our kids, do parents go to jail?  Do we get fined hundreds, thousands of dollars?

Look for future blogs on this and other health concerns.  If you have any questions please feel free to call me at 520-290-8892 or call our office to attend our chiropractic or nutritional workshops.

Your Body is Made to Heal

I am continually amazed at how the body has the unique ability to heal itself once we recognize the importance of good nutrition and whole food supplements.  Our bodies our made to heal with good foods, but since most of our food is robbed of the nutrients by heat processing, enzymes taken out for shelf life, and the removal of important vitamins and minerals.  Our bodies slowly lose their ability to restore normal function to its organs.  Once we change our diet and add “Whole Food Supplements” our bodies slowly regain their normal activity.

Here is a great example of the change that can be made.  Cliff Burnette stated that before seeing us he had lower back pain, severe congestion, and had been suffering with chronic diarrhea since 1996.  He also stated he had depression and insomnia.

Since being on our nutrition program for 7 weeks, he states:  “I have been seeing Dr. Aragon about 7 weeks now.  My congestion is pretty much gone.  Bowel movements are almost normal and I’m sleeping better and I am not depressed.”

This patient’s results are what we are seeing in our office by carefully monitoring their diet, finding out what organs are weak and giving them supplements to strengthen their bodies.
