Love a Lot

by Dr Jo

Enjoy your holidays. Christmas can be a very merry season until all the germs that are flying around lay you low.

So here’s my Christmas gift to you, tips on staying healthy and having a really great time enjoying the people in your life (even the ones you don’t look forward to being with).

 Simplify, decrease the busy-ness of the season:

   Keep gift giving simple – it’s the love that counts.

   Does decorating stress you? Just put out the large decorations. They do more to create the Christmas atmosphere than all those little items that take so much time.

   No time for that time eating task of wrapping packages – use decorative Christmas bags and then save them to use again next year if they get left at your house.

   Make Christmas dinner a potluck.

   It’s the love that counts.

 Hug a lot, even the unloveables. You may be surprised at the love that returns to you.

 Laugh a lot:

   Even when the power goes out and you have 13 people staying in your home, snowed in with you.

   Hug a lot – it will keep you warm when the heating source is defunct because the power is out.

   Enjoy the fun of having to live by candle light. After all candle light is romantic.

   It’s the love that counts.

 Protect yourself from those germs:

(These recommendations should not be taken by pregnant women or young children.)

   Take extra Vitamin D if you live where you can’t get good sun exposure in the winter months. Just about all adults can take 2,000 IU per day. If you’re around an infected person, take an extra 2,000 to 4,000 IU per day for a few days.

   If you start to come down with a virus, take 100,000 to 300,000 IU of vitamin A per day and 400 to 800 IU of vitamin E per day for only 3 days. If you have liver disease, do not take these high doses of vitamin A.

   Some people find that taking extra Vitamin C helps protect them from germs. If your body deals with synthetic Vitamin C well, gradually increase the amount you take to bowel tolerance. That means stay at the highest dose you can take before it causes diarrhea.

   Love a lot – germs hate that.

 Remember to love a lot – that’s what this season is all about. It’s a celebration of the day that God’s great love took on human form and walked the earth so we can always stay in God’s abundant love. Love is spelled Jesus.

God bless you. Have a wonderful Christmas.

Much Love,

Dr. Jo

Only 9 days left until Christmas – make your shopping easy!

by Dr Jo

Make your last minute shopping easy – I will do it all for you! And you get the best deal you could possibly ever get!

Give your loved ones and friends the gift of health and life!

So how’s that for a great Christmas deal.

Now you’re asking, how do you gift wrap life and health?

You wrap up a great CD audio series (created by me, Dr. Jo) that provides an abundance of information in an easy to understand format that guides that special someone to living an optimally healthy life.

This CD series emphasizes secrets to losing weight the healthy way. Let’s face it; no one worries about weight loss this time of year.

But…..

Not too long from now, you know what happens – yep, those New Year’s resolutions. And what’s the most common resolution? “This year I am going to lose weight and get healthy.”

But….

Why do we keep making that same old resolution every year? Because we’ve failed again in our weight loss efforts.

And why do we fail? Because we don’t have the right information about what works the best for our bodies.

In fact, most fad diets or very low calorie diets actually reset our metabolism to hold onto more fat because our bodies think that they are starving. So starts the vicious cycle of yo-yo dieting and declining health.

But now you can come to the rescue for your friends and loved ones. Give them the gift of life and health so they can determine and follow their own unique eating plan that will serve their unique metabolism. When it comes to “diets”, it’s not “One size fits all”. No way. You are uniquely-you and you need your own uniquely-you eating plan for your uniquely-you metabolism.

And so do those on your gift list.

The glitz and glamour of other Christmas gifts will quickly fade away, and then they will remember that very special gift you sent to them and turn to it to guide them into health for the rest of their lives. It’s the gift that keeps on giving!

And this gift is…

Practical Nutrition by Dr. Bessie Jo Tillman, an 11 CD audio series with a 78-page manual full of even more great tips.

Stay Healthy for the Holidays – Put the Right Fuel in Your Tank

by Dr Jo

The saying “Garbage in, garbage out” can be applied to many things. And it certainly applies to what you put on your mouth.  So, do yourself a favor and put high-quality fuel in your body to achieve optimal health. The right food choices will boost your energy, improve the clarity of your mind, optimize your weight, increase your lifespan, and protect you from all those germs flying around in the holiday season.

So look for really healthy recipes to fix this holiday season.

You will digest and perform at a more optimal level if you eat four to six small meals a day. When you eat healthy small meals throughout the day, you won’t be so tempted by all the illness-promoting, everywhere-present sweets tempting you during the holidays. Choose those meals from organic, whole foods. In each meal include:

1. Protein
Base every meal upon a healthy source of protein. If you eat animal products, choose those from animals that are raised on their natural diet. Free-range poultry and eggs, wild fish, raw unpasteurized dairy and grass-fed meats come from animals raised in a healthy manner. Nuts and beans are also good sources of protein.

2. Fat
Choose the RIGHT fats for your meals. Healthy fats should come from naturally raised animals also. Include these healthy fats in your meals: wild fish, olive oil, coconut oil, walnut and macadamia oils, vegetables, nuts, and avocadoes in your meals. Avoid processed vegetable and seed oils and the dreaded “hydrogenated” oils (trans-fats) like you would avoid the plague.

3. Carbohydrates
Your carbs should come from sources that drip sugar into your blood stream slowly as you digest them – non-starchy vegetables, beans, nuts, seeds, whole fruits, and berries. Avoid sugar, soft drinks, fruit juices, refined flour, refined grains, and starches.

You will find that I only used these healthy foods in my cookbook, Dr. Jo’s Natural Healing Cookbook. It makes fixing healthy meals so easy because it’s full of healthy recipes.

Treat your family and co-workers to healthy food for holiday celebrations. Give them the gift of life and health. Take a tray of raw or soaked-overnight nuts and dried fruit to the office. Or how about a veggie tray with an unusual but tasty dip like this healthy recipe – Marinated Black Beans.

Add another surprise for your co-workers or friends, print out a copy of the Marinated Black Beans recipe to share with them. You can easily share individual recipes by downloading and printing out the E-book version of Dr. Jo’s Natural Healing Cookbook. You have my permission to print out and share an occasional recipe, but not the entire book. I trust you.
