Wouldn’t it be nice to add three superpowers to your clients sessions and have your clients look forward to implementing them at home?

Many practitioners struggle with getting clients to comply with Rx/homework that will really make a difference.

We know this is a weakness… and we know how to do something about it.

Introducing beautiful wearable protection, that helps your body listen, receive and create the conditions to give your cells Life energy and it adds three superpowers by using your present technology.

 

Your body can and will send electromagnetic information.

It works like this…
An energy protective inner lining that evolved out of space suit technology to keep the astronauts and cosmonauts from harm is married to luxurious soft and warm pashmina & silk materials.

This beautiful wrap creates a warm cozy protective healing cocoon that deflects harmful EMF and cancer causing waves away, and reflects your inner energies back to you so they accumulate, and recharge your own biological battery.

Our wrap gives feedback to your nervous system so circulation is improved, muscles relax in the nurturing warmth and your own body's healing mechanisms are being activated to correct imbalances.

 

Superpower #1 Protection:

The inner layer acts as a reflective shield to create a cocoon to protect your cells from the ravages of dangerous, zapping and cancer causing fields in the environment all around us.

Imagine an umbrella which ordinarily keeps off the rain, the protective pashmina keeps off dangerous electromagnetic currents.

Super Power #2 Reflection:

Your body's own energy gets mirrored back and receptor sites in your skin and glands now have feedback and information to correct imbalances. In as little as 5 minutes of feedback correction circulation improves, cool spots get warmer and hot spots get cooler and as a result, lymphatic circulation in the body improves.

Imagine if you will those shields for your windshield that purport to keep the car cool. Only the Pashmina pulls the energy in.

Super Power #3 Energy Accumulation:

As you are being protected an electrical charge is accumulated and heightened on your skin surface and directly in the cells recharging your body's biological battery, stimulating the autonomic nervous system and enhancing metabolic functions.

This protective shield also gathers and traps your body's own thermal heat which is similar to the effect of a gentle infra-red sauna. Skin temperatures can increase by 1-7 degrees, which is more than enough to lessen and even stop a migraine in it's path. What's more this subtle rise in temperature will thoroughly warm notoriously cold hands and feet.

Wrap yourself into a warm beautiful protective healing cocoon developed to reflect, protect, revive, regenerate and restore even the most tired, stressed or ailing body.

All you have to do is wrap your client while you are in session with them, and recommend that they take it home for one week, to see and experience the changes.

The changes are verifiable with your software, and also your clients will notice the changes usually right away. 78% of our clients purchase or rent the Wraps / Blankets after the first week. This adds weekly and even daily cash flow richness to your practice.

From the Mayo Clinic Health Letter

Buzzed on inflammation

by

Brent Bauer, M.D.
General Internal Medicine, Editorial Board member of Mayo Clinic Health Letter

As buzzwords go in medicine, “inflammation” is at the top of the list, and has been featured in this July newsletter from the Mayo Clinic. Mrs. Cardiology explains that her husband, Dr. Santosh Pandit, has been blaming inflammation as the culprit in all chronic illness.

Acute inflammation, however, is the process that heals the body after an injury or infection and is essential and normal. It is an amazing process of biochemical reactions that the human body has designed to heal itself “increasing blood flow to the area and signaling molecules and other chemical components to recruit the body’s equivalent of the Superhero.”  The Superhero is blood cells that fight off foreign bodies. This is a normal and healthy process and not the type of inflammation that is the culprit of chronic disease.  Chronic inflammation on the other hand is a case of mistaken identity where the body’s immune system mistakenly initiates an inflammatory response even though there’s no apparent inflammation to fight off. This type of inflammation is responsible for diseases like asthma, inflammatory bowel disease, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, even heart disease.

The trick is to eat more from the bottom of the pyramid and less from the top.

The trick is to eat more from the bottom of the pyramid and less from the top.

Some experts recommend an “anti-inflammatory diet.” This is usually the components of the Mediterranean diet and as you can see certainly can’t hurt. These are the steps to follow:

  • Eat generous amounts of fruits and vegetables
  • Eat healthy fats, such as olive oil and canola oil
  • Add small portions of nuts
  • drink red wine in moderation
  • Eat fish on a regular basis
  • Consuming very little red meat

Here’s what the American Hear Association says:

From the American Heart Association In an Article “Understand the risks of inflammation.”

“Although it is not proven that inflammation causes cardiovascular disease, inflammation is common forheart diseaseandstrokepatients and is thought to be a sign or atherogenic response. It's important to know what inflammation is and model-of-human-heartwhat it can do to your heart.”

“Think about a splinter in your finger or an abscess on a tooth,” said Donna Arnett, Ph.D., chair and professor of epidemiology at the School of Public Health at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and a pastpresident of the American Heart Association. “Our body launches an attack with our white blood cells and chemicals that results in redness and swellingto kill the bacteria or rid the body of the intruder.”

Similarly, for the cardiovascular system,risk factorslikecigarette smoking,high blood pressureandLDL (bad) cholesterolcan “injure” the heart. In turn,atherosclerosis, the buildup of fatty deposits in the inner walls of arteries, can develop. This narrows the arteries and increases the risk they'll become blocked.

The Role of Inflammation in Heart Attack and Stroke

“Exactly how inflammation plays a role inheart attackand stroke remains a topic of ongoing research,” added Deepak Bhatt, M.D. “It appears that the inciting event in many heart attacks and some forms of stroke is buildup of fatty, cholesterol-rich plaque in blood vessels.”

Bhatt is chief of cardiology for the VA Boston Healthcare System, director of the Integrated Interventional Cardiovascular Program at Brigham and Women’s Hospital & VA Boston Healthcare System, and associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School.

“The body perceives this plaque as abnormal and foreign ” it does not belong in a healthy blood vessel,” he said. “In response, the body tries to wall off the plaque from the flowing blood. However, under the wrong set of circumstances, that plaque may rupture, and its walled-off contents can come into contact with blood and trigger a blood clot formation.”

Bhatt added, “This combination of plaque and blood clots causes the majority of heart attacks and certain types of stroke, if the blood clot obstructs blood flow to the heart or brain.”

An artery to the heart that's blocked causes a heart attack.

berries-in-a-heart-dishExperts have discussed the potential disease-fighting benefits of diets that try to reduce inflammation.

The Anti-inflammatory diet is not even a diet so much as it is a change in life style and a healthy eating program.

Each book and website promoting the Anti-inflammatory diet has its own spin.

Barry Sears, MD, ofThe Zone dietfame and Andrew Weil, MD, the Harvard-trained natural and preventive medicine physician, say the anti-inflammatory diet is ideal for overall good health. Such advocates of the diet say it can reduce heart disease risk, reduce the effects of existing cardiac problems, lower blood tiglycerides, blood pressure and sooth arthritic joint pain.

Why Anti-Inflammatory Diets?

Russell Greenfield, MD, a clinical assistant professor of medicine at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a private-practice physician who studied under Weil, says each plan has its own unique selling point but all site the general concept that out of control inflammation in the body leads to ill health and eating to avoid the foods that cause constant inflammation promotes better health and can help avoid certain chronic diseases.

He continues in a Wed MD interview: “We always thought anything with an “itis” at the end involved inflammation,” he says, such asarthritisorappendicitis. But even the illnesses without an “itis” at the end, such ascardiovascular disease, certain cancers, evenAlzheimer’s disease, may be triggered in part by inflammation.”

The average American diet, Greenfield says, includes far too many foods rich in omega-6 fatty acids, found in processed and fast foods, and far too few rich in omega-3 fatty acids, such as those found in cold-water fish orsupplements. When that balance is out of whack, inflammation can set in, Sears explains. Phytochemicals — natural chemicals found in the plant foods suggested on the diets — are also believed to help reduce inflammation. Phytochemicals are non-nutritive plant chemicals that have protective or disease preventive properties.

Anti-Inflammatory Diets: What Should Be In Your Fridge?

The anti-inflammatory diet is “probably very close to theMediterranean diet,” says Christopher Cannon, MD, associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and a cardiologist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston. He co-authoredThe Complete Idiot’s Guide to The Anti-Inflammation Diet, which includes recipes for anti-inflammatory eating and information onvitamins.

[[[27]]]

by Christopher P. Cannon M.D. and Heidi McIndoo M.S. R.D.

An anti-inflammatory diet is the Zone diet with fish oil says Sears, who wroteThe Anti-Inflammation Zoneand whose popular Zone diet recommends low-fat protein, carbs, and heart-healthy monounsaturated fats.

Specifics vary from diet to diet, but in general anti-inflammatory diets suggest:

  • Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables
  • Minimize saturated and trans fats
  • Eat a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, such as fish or walnuts.
  • Watch your intake of refined carbohydrates such as pasta and white rice.
  • Eat plenty of whole grains such as brown rice and bulgur wheat.
  • Eat lean protein sources such as chicken; cut back on red meat and full-fat dairy foods.
  • Avoid refined foods and processed foods.
  • Spice it up. Ginger, curry, and other spices can have an anti-inflammatory effect.

As one example of a day’s worth of anti-inflammatory eating, Cannon suggests a breakfast of toasted steel-cut oatmeal with berries, yogurt, or other topping and coffee or green tea green tea. Lunch could be tuna salad on 7-grain bread and a smoothie with seasonal fruits. For a snack, try an ounce of darkchocolateand about four walnuts. Dinner could be spaghetti with turkey meat sauce, spinach salad with oranges and walnuts, and apple cranberry pie made without butter.

The diets don’t promiseweight loss, butweightreduction does often occur. And that makes sense, given themakeupof the diet, says Greenfield.

“When you are talking about cutting back on red meat, dairy, fats and trans fats, partially hydrogenated oils, highly processed carbs — and eating healthier protein like fish, eating more — odds are that people are going to lose at least a little bit of weight.”

Anti inflammatory eating can be fun and delicious.

Where Is the Proof That Reducing Inflammation Works?

Can a diet really affect inflammation?

Proponents say it can, but they acknowledge that the anti-inflammatory diet needs to be studied more extensively to prove that it actually reduces disease such as heart problems.

“But a related diet, theMediterranean diet, has been and is associated with improved cardiac outcomes,” Cannon says.

Greenfield agrees. “There is ample evidence [of disease risk reduction] on the Asian-style diet and the Mediterranean-style diet,” he says. “When you take a look at the components [of those diets], they could easily be called anti-inflammatory diets.”

Omega-3, in doses of 3 grams or more per day, has been found effective for those with rheumatoid arthritis, reducing morning stiffness and the number of joints that are tender or swollen, according to a review of the research on omega-3 fatty acids and health in American Family Physician.

Omega-3 fatty acids, in foods like salmon, flaxseed and walnuts, are known inflammation fighters. DHA and EPA are two types of omega-3 fatty acids (you'll see them listed on your bottle of supplements). In a study just published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, subjects given 2.7 grams per day of DHA for 10 weeks showed fewer markers for inflammation than those given 2.7 grams of EPA or a placebo

Anecdotally, says Greenfield, he hears from patients that avoiding “inflammatory” foods can help theirosteoarthritispain. He recalls talking to patients witharthritiswho have vacationed in India, for instance, eating dishes with plenty of curry, and telling him their joints didn’t hurt as much while they were there.

Anti inflammatory diet may help joint inflammation.

Anti inflammatory diet may help joint inflammation.

 

Curry, he says, as well as ginger, is a natural anti-inflammatory.

Not surprisingly, the anti-inflammatory diet takes longer to work than, say, an anti-inflammatory medicine. “With an anti-inflammatory drug, you feel better in an hour or two,” Greenfield says. For the anti-inflammatory diet, more patience is needed. “I would say clearly within just a few weeks most of the patients I have see a noticeable difference [in symptoms].”

Also Curcumin (the bioactive ingredient in the spice turmeric) has lots of science supporting its anti-inflammatory benefits. A 2015 study at the University of Arizona found that curcumin suppressed inflammation and prevented tumor formation in mice with colitis-associated colon cancer. “Ginger is another good spice to use regularly,” says Chris D'Adamo, director of research, Center for Integrative Medicine, University of Maryland School of Medicine. It's been shown to inhibit compounds that promote inflammation.

Anti-Inflammatory Food Pyramid

Alternative health expertDr. Andrew Weil's food pyramid will help you eat the optimum amount of fruits, vegetables and even pasta to prevent inflammation and reduce your risk of chronic diseases. But the best part is that you don't have to cut out things like red wine and chocolate. Both can be good for you in moderation.Learn more about Dr. Weil’s anti-inflammatory foods.

Posted on11/02/2010| By Dr. Andrew Weil|

Reduce inflammation with these anti-inflammatory suggestions, starting from the bottom of the pyramid and moving up:

  • All fruits and vegetables:Try to get all the colors!
  • Whole and cracked grains:Oats, brown rice, whole rye, whole-wheat breads and pastas
  • All beans and legumes
  • Healthy fats:Extra-virgin olive oil, walnuts, avocados, hemp seeds, flaxseed
  • Fish and seafood:Salmon, black cod, sardines
  • Whole soy foods:Edamame, soy nuts, soy milk, tofu, tempeh
  • Yogurt
  • Omega-3 enriched eggs
  • Skinless poultry and lean meats
  • Spices:Ginger, turmeric, garlic, cinnamon, holy basil, rosemary
  • Teas:White, green, oolong
  • Red wine(but no more than 1 to 2 glasses a day!)
  • Wine a little, it's good for your health.

    Wine a little, it’s good for your health.

There are many healthy reasons to opt for a predominantly plant-based diet, and research has shown that less inflammation is one of them. A 2015 study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that a sugar molecule derived from red meat promotes inflammation and cancer progression. So swapping your beef burger for a veggie version (at least once in a while) could help keep systemic inflammation at bay.

Prepare your questions

WRITING BY cathryn lavery

photo by Cathryn Lavery

Time is limited during doctor visits. Prepare for your appointment by thinking about what you want to do during your next visit. Do you want to:

  • Talk about a health problem?
  • Get or change a medicine?
  • Get medical tests?
  • Talk about surgery or treatment options?

Write down your questions to bring to your appointment. The answers can help you make better decisions, get good care, and feel better about your health care.

Understand the answers and next steps

Asking questions is important but so is making sure you hear”and understand”the answers you get. Take notes. Or bring someone to your appointment to help you understand and remember what you heard. If you don't understand or are confused, ask your doctor to explain the answer again.

It is very important to understand the plan or next steps that your doctor recommends. Ask questions to make sure you understand what your doctor wants you to do.

The questions you may want to ask will depend on whether your doctor gives you a diagnosis; recommends a treatment, medical test, or surgery; or gives you a prescription for medicine.

Questions could include:

  • What is my diagnosis?
  • What are my treatment options? What are the benefits of each option? What are the side effects?
  • Will I need a test? What is the test for? What will the results tell me?
  • What will the medicine you are prescribing do? How do I take it? Are there any side effects?
  • Why do I need surgery? Are there other ways to treat my condition? How often do you perform this surgery?
  • Do I need to change my daily routine?

Find out what you are to do next. Ask for written instructions, brochures, videos, or Web sites that may help you learn more.

After Your Appointment

prescription pad

Questions Are the Answer

You can make sure you get the best possible care by being an active member of your health care team. Being involved means being prepared and asking questions.

After you meet with your doctor, you will need to follow his or her instructions to keep your health on track.

Your doctor may have you fill a prescription or make an another appointment for tests, lab work, or a follow-up visit. It is important for you to follow your doctor's instructions.

It also is important to call your doctor if you are unclear about any instructions or have more questions.

Prioritize your questions

Create a list of follow-up questions to ask if you:

  • Have a health problem
  • Need to get or change a medicine
  • Need a medical test
  • Need to have surgery
phone and stethospcope by Luis Llerena

Other times to call your doctor

There are other times when you should follow up on your care and call your doctor. Call your doctor:

  • If you experience any side effects or other problems with your medicines.
  • If your symptoms get worse after seeing the doctor.
  • If you receive any new prescriptions or start taking any over-the-counter medicines.
  • To get results of any tests you've had. Do not assume that no news is good news.
  • To ask about test results you do not understand.

Your questions help your doctor and health care team learn more about you. Your doctor's answers to your questions can help you make better decisions, receive a higher level of care, avoid medical harm, and feel better about your health care. Your questions can also lead to better results for your health.

It took Mrs. Cardiology several months from this point to decide that life happens when you are trying to get things accomplished for your business. So at this point she hired Joanne Quinn-Smith aka TechnoGranny to produce her show for her, lining up her editorial calendar with topics and guests, doing the research and moderating the show. This is when they sort of became like Ed Mc Mahon and Johnny Carson of the original The Tonight Show . Mrs. Cardiology then decided on a series of shows that seemed to align themselves with her “fireside chats” which were never really actually fireside but at home conversations with her cardiologist husband, Dr. Santosh Pandit.

Mrs. Cardiology, 5 Reasons to Know Your Antioxidant Scores

What is an antioxidant? An antioxidant is a molecule that inhibits the oxidation of other molecules. Oxidation is a chemical

reaction that transfers electrons or hydrogen from a substance to an oxidizing agent. Oxidation reactions can produce free radicals. In turn, these radicals can start chain reactions. When the chain reaction occurs in a cell, it can cause damage or death to the cell. Antioxidants terminate these chain reactions by removing free radical intermediates, and inhibit other oxidation reactions. They do this by being oxidized themselves, so antioxidants are often reducing agents such as thiols, ascorbic acid, or polyphenols. In plain English as Mrs. Cardiology will break it down for you, free radicals are directly linked by current medical research to such diseases as cancer and heart disease. Antioxidants are the militia to fight free radicals and you need to know your score to see how effective your army of antioxidants is. This is just one of the reasons of the 5 Reasons to Know Your Antioxidant Score.

Title: Mrs. Cardiology, 10 Health Resolutions, 5 Scientific Ways to Succeed
Time: 01/08/2016 08:45 AM EST
Episode Notes: Health resolutions are great starting a new year, but surveys show that they often don’t make it past two weeks or even less. As in anything else, YOU NEED A PLAN. Culled from her fireside chats with her cardiologist husband, Dr. Santosh Pandit, Mrs. Cardiology has come up with Ten Healthy Resolutions for 2016. More importantly she has searched around to put some science behind putting them into a 90 day plan instead of one year with very good scientific steps to help you succeed, Six Scientific Steps to Be Exact, 10 Resolutions and Breaking it down into 90 Day Increments.

2016 New Years Resolutions

Is this your year to keep your resolutions?

How many New Year’s Resolutions have come and gone especially when they have to do with your health. How long do yours last, a week, a month, a couple of days? Well if you are serious about improving your health, Mrs. Cardiology has some suggestions for worthwhile health goals and some scientific guidelines for a 90 day plan to make them work and then move on to the next ninety days. But it all starts with knowing what your goals are and why and writing them down, then having a plan of implementation.

Here are the ten most popular and probably the most worthwhile health goals for 2016.

1. Lose weight
2. Quit smoking
3. De-Stress
4. Cut back on alcohol
5. Sleep More
6. Eat The Anti-inflammatory Diet
7. Don’t stop snacking but eat healthier snacks
8. Learn to Breathe properly
9. Get Fit
10. Can Coffee Breaks and Take Tea Breaks

Top Ten Healthy Resolutions

Top Ten Healthy Resolutions for 2016

1. Lose weight

· Drink More Water

Apple and Tape Measure

Right Foods Can Create the Perfect Measurementsre

· Cut back on Sugars and Starches, lowering your insulin will lower your desire for sweets and additional calories
· Eat more protein and fiber through ancient grains and vegetables
· Use Smaller Plates to fool yourself into thinking you are getting more
· Sleep Better
· Move your body

Quit smoking

Lose the habit or lose your life!

2. Quit smoking

Plain and simple, the world is becoming a smoke free environment and there are less and less places to smoke in public and it is detrimental to your health and the health of others around you, it is no longer considered attractive and will definitely shorten your life. Many hospitals have great free info on a quit smoking plan.

Stressed Woman

Learn to De-Stress

3. De-Stress

A little pressure now and again won't kill us; in fact, short bouts of stress give us an energy boost. But if stress is chronic, it can increase your risk of”or worsen”insomnia, depression, obesity, heart disease and many other illnesses.

Slow Down Your Drinking Picture

A drink now and then may be healthy but don’t over imbibe!

4. Slow down on imbibing alcohol

Much has been written about the health benefits of a small amount of alcohol, but too much tippling is the bigger problem. Alcohol in excess affects the brain's neurotransmitters and can increase the risk of depression, memory loss, or even seizures. It is also puts you at risk for liver and heart disease, hypertension stroke and mental deterioration. There is even evidence that it may contribute to certain cancers.

Sleeping man

Resolve to sleep more.

5. Sleep More

The old saying, “I need my beauty sleep,” still holds true as sleep does wonders for your mood and appearance but it also benefits your health. Many people diet consistently but don’t stop losing weight until they begin to get a suitable amount of sleep. Sleep also strengthens your memories by a process called consolidation.

Your mama was right, “eat your vegetables”

6. Eat an Anti-inflammatory Diet

This should be a lifelong guide intended to counteract chronic inflammation, which is now credited with heart disease, many cancers and Alzheimer’s disease. Poor eating habits are the main contributor to chronic inflammation. The anti-inflammatory diet can help you correct that: it points the way to food choices that can help you remain optimally healthy. Here’s a link to the Dr. Oz’s Anti-Inflammatory Food Pyramid. http://www.doctoroz.com/article/anti-inflammatory-food-pyramid

· All fruits and vegetables: Try to get all the colors!
· Whole and cracked grains: Oats, brown rice, whole rye, whole-wheat breads and pastas
· All beans and legumes
· Healthy fats: Extra-virgin olive oil, walnuts, avocados, hemp seeds, flaxseed
· Fish and seafood: Salmon, black cod, sardines
· Whole soy foods: Edamame, soy nuts, soy milk, tofu, tempeh
· Yogurt
· Omega-3 enriched eggs
· Skinless poultry and lean meats
· Spices: Ginger, turmeric, garlic, cinnamon, holy basil, rosemary
· Teas: White, green, oolong
· Red wine (but no more than 1 to 2 glasses a day!)

Fruits and veggies in market

Fruits and vegetables make great snacks.

7. Don’t stop snacking, eat healthier snacks.

Most nutritionists will tell you that snacking is a good idea because it keeps your blood sugar levels and energy steady and can improve your mood and help with appetite control. Processed junk food however is not the way to go. Too many calories and the wrong kind of fats! Also too much salt, hidden sugar and addititives! Bit planning ahead of time by carrying food with your or keeping it in your fridge or pantry is a great way to stay healthy. Plan on things like fresh or dried fruit, raw, unsalted nuts, natural cheeses, 70% cocoa dark chocolate are all good choices.

 

Yoga breathing

Yoga is a great way to learn to breathe

8. Learn to Breathe Properly

Simple breathing techniques offer a drug-free way to help lower your blood pressure, calm a racing heart, or settle an upset digestive system. Proper breathing has direct influence on emotional states and moods. When you’re upset, you breathe rapidly, shallowly, and irregularly, but you can’t be upset if your breathing is slow, deep, quiet and regular. At first, the effects are subtle, but they will gain power the more you repeat them. Whether you want to address health problems or just relax and reduce stress, make this the year to learn and practice these proper breathing techniques.

Fitness shoe

A body in motion, a great way to stay fit.

9. Get Fit

Anything that moves your body can help you get fit. But let’s face of us, need something more regimented and this is the time of year when many great gyms are selling memberships for as low as $20.00 a month. You could also team up with a buddy and walk everyday or take the clothes that are hanging on your treadmill off and actually use it.

Tea in cup

Tea is loaded with health benefits.

10. Can the Coffee Breaks and Take Tea Breaks

Green tea can actually improve your cholesterol ration, as well as help protect against cancer and bacterial infections. The difference between green and the more familiar black tea is in the preparation: both come from the same plant, Camellia sinesis, but to make black tea, leaves go through an oxidation process that darkens them. Unfermented green tea contains more catechins. The benefits however do not stop there, learn to savor quality teas and use them as a reward at the end of a hard day or a way to unwind and decrease your stress or just as a pick me up.

Six Scientific Steps to Keeping Those Healthy Resolutions

American philosopher Will Durant said, We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit. This advice came after his discussion of Centuries old advice from Aristotle that success doesn't come overnight but that it comes from proper disciplined steps to get from Point A to Point B. The straight and narrow might be the path you want to follow but distractions will derail the creation of good habits. It’s so easy to slide back into our old ways. So if you can’t depend on human nature, author of “The Sparring Mind,” Gregory Ciotti simplifies keeping health resolutions to a science.

percentage

Even a small percentage of change is better than none.

1. Make micro quotas and macro goals

Dreaming big is definitely good advice but to make habits stick you have to find ways to balance desire to dream bit with your day to day activities which unfortunately don't always result in quick and lasting change.
Ciotti has figured out that the answer is to create micro quotas and macro goals. Big dreams equate to the goals which are the big picture that you wish to reach SOMEDAY. But quotas are small amounts of work that you must do every day to reach these bigger goals. Quotas make your bigger goals an eventual assured reality because quotas make each day approachable
Marketer and Author Dan Kennedy is a multiple bestselling author who set a micro quota of writing                         each morning.

Behavior chains are your link to success.

Behavior chains are your link to success.

2. Create behavior chains

Creating habits that stick works best when making use of our current routines, instead of trying to fight them. Environmental triggers let us know that it's time to act on our habit. “Also known implementation intentions, this tactic involves picking a regular part of your schedule and then building another link in the chain by adding a new habit.”
For instance, instead of I will not eat junk food, you could aim for, I will arrange my menu for the day, the evening before and make sure that I have all of the ingredients and the preparation arranged. According to Ciotti, one should choose contextual cues over willpower. So the next time you decide to cut down on calories, you can tell yourself, “If it is mealtime, I will only eat lean meat or fish and vegetables or salad.”

Having fewer choices is better.

Having fewer choices is better.

3. Eliminate excessive options

Ciotti says “According to research on self-control and in books like The Willpower Effect ” there is great power in being boring. Take, for instance, Barack Obama's insistence on never wearing anything but blue and gray suits. According to the president, ‘I'm trying to pare down decisions. I don't want to make too many decisions about what I'm eating or wearing. Because I have too many other decisions to make.’ ”
Well supported research on self control finds that making repeated choices mentally drains energy. there are multiple articles by psychiatrists, scientists and philosophers who maintain that keeping up a long term disciple or habit starts with finding the mundane, boring parts of your life, creating routines and much as possible and make fewer decisions. Mrs. Cardiology’s take is if there is no chocolate cake in the fridge because you continually buy all the good things you need to eat, then you won’t have to choose between chocolate cake and an apple or banana. So routinize as much as you can in your life and the healthy habits you want to establish will follow.
You won’t need any willpower if you stop buying Oreos or frozen pizzas. This is the type of routine to embrace for lasting change.

A written plan is best.

A written plan is best.

4. Process plan (but don't fantasize)

You will never figure out how if you don’t figure out why. Wishing and hoping won’t get you there unless you figure out definitively why you want to develop a healthy habit. This is not a small detail but plays a huge role in developing a lifelong healthy habit. Visualization of the outcome itself is not enough; visualization of the process is really what is needed: According to Ciotti, this visualization style works for two reasons:
· Planning: visualizing the process helped focus attention on the steps needed to reach the goal.
· Emotion: visualization of individual steps led to reduced anxiety.”

Don't give up.

Don’t give up.

5. Eliminate ah-screw-its

These are two rather unscientific terms for the fragile nature of new habits. And according to Ciotti, therefore we must eliminate anything that might lead us astray. These are the times that you find yourself saying Screw this; it's not worth the effort! The solution is to examine where things start to break down and eliminate those circumstances. One example might be trying to create the habit of going to the gym but only having one set of gym clothes and realizing they are dirty. The solution would be buying a second set of course or making sure they are washed and in a gym bag ready to go for the next day.
Mrs. Cardiology hopes that you find both these healthy habits and the ways to adopt and keep them will help you. Please feel free to contact me with your ideas and success stories that may help others or just leave your comments here. You can read Gregory Ciotti’s blog on how to change your habits and keep them here:
http://www.sparringmind.com/good-habits/

If you just follow even one of these suggestions you will have reason to celebrate.

Let us know what new healthy habits you are celebrating.

Sachin's–Sunita’s sons story of being sick for 10 days every January and supplementation
So lets get everyone on track with that important first step get armed with your score so you know

Pandit family, Santosh, Sunita, Sid, Sachin

where your start line is!

So many people spend their health gaining wealth,and then have to spend their wealth to regain their health.

1. Reduce Your Consumption of Drugs

That includes alcohol, cigarettes, over the counter, prescription and otherwise. Drugs are a huge financial drain, and in most cases, unhealthy for the human body. A significant portion of the global population abuses the crap out of them on a daily basis, legally and illegally.

 

2. Avoid Overpriced, Unproven Supplements

water and pills

Make sure your supplements are proven effective.

Most people assume that FDA approved nutritional supplements are proven products. Wrong! Do you really think the FDA has enough resources to precisely verify every new dietary supplement proposed to hit the market? I assure you, they don't and there is no feasible way they ever will. Remember, the FDA concentrates its efforts on drugs, not supplements. Under the active Dietary Supplement and Health Education Act, producers of dietary supplements do not have to verify that their product is effective, safe or at all healthy prior to placing it on store shelves. Sometimes someone has to become dreadfully ill from a dietary supplement before it even becomes a blip on the FDA's rad

3. How Healthy Eating Saves You Money On Health Insurance

We all know eating healthy helps us look and feel our best, but there is another great reason to upgrade your health style: a healthy diet can save you a ton of money on health care costs.
Over the past decade, health insurance rates have skyrocketed. In 2009, monthly premiums in the United States were 131% higher than they were in 2000, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation. This is largely due to the high cost of treating diseases related to unhealthy diets.
According to a recent study by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, and RTI International, health conditions related to obesity (including type 2 diabetes and heart disease) cost the American health care system over $147 billion each year.
What is this money spent on?

Keep your heart healthy!

Keep your heart healthy!

· Open-heart bypass surgery: up to $20,000
· Prescription medication and supplies for diabetes: $115 to $177 monthlyfor life
· CPAP machines (to treat sleep apnea): from $150 to $5,000
An obese person costs 42% more to treat than a person of normal weight, which is an additional $1,429. Health insurance plans must pass these costs onto you through higher premiums. In order to recoup these expenses, obese individuals often find it harder to find individual coverage, due to the increased risk of health problems obesity entails.

4. GOOD NUTRITION ESSENTIAL FOR OUR MENTAL HEALTH & INFLUENCED BY DIETARY FACTORS

One of the most obvious, yet under-recognised factors in the development of major trends in mental health is the role of nutrition. The body of evidence linking diet and mental health is growing at a rapid

Feed your brain properly!

Feed your brain properly!

pace. As well as its impact on short and long-term mental health, the evidence indicates that food plays an important contributing role in the development, management and prevention of specific mental health problems such as depression, schizophrenia, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and Alzheimer's disease.

A balanced mood and feelings of wellbeing can be protected by ensuring that our diet provides adequate amounts of complex carbohydrates, essential fats, amino acids, vitamins and minerals and water.

5. Medicare and Future Reimbursements

Decreased reimbursements under the current sick care medical model has caused us to worry about future revenues while, most importantly, maintaining the quality of care we are used to providing. If we could address the cause to our illnesses, rather than just treat the symptoms, we will set ourselves apart from our competitors and practice a true health care model.

Mrs. Cardiology Show Description
After 30 years of wedded arranged marriage bliss to Dr. Santosh Pandit, my ˜fireside conversations' with him has convinced me that there is much more to cardiology care than any doctor can possibly cover in the average fifteen minute consultation.
The personal experience of having taken care of my father with Congestive Heart Failure more than 10 years ago left me helpless in understanding and knowing how to help him. Today I know more that I certainly wish I knew back then.
So I embark on my personal adventure to address that somewhat overwhelming world of cardiac education and I like presenting in plain English! I welcome questions to clarify what I present here in my blog.
Behind every Doctor's white coat facade churns a world of untapped education that the layperson or would be patient needs to hear in pure unadulterated everyday language. That's my mission to let you know of the insights thatI have garnered and the mysteries that I can uncover for you about the perils of the heart.
These are some of the things from my fireside conversations that I will write about that have practical implications.prescription pad
· Nutrition
· Lifestyle
· Laughter
· Food
· Stress
· Exercise
· Fresh Air
· Sunshine
· Recreation
· Relationships
I will also talk about cardiology buzz words in plain English. This blog is not designed to help cure any illnesses or dispense any medical advice. I will also provide resources that can help you in your search for clarity and explanations. Watch for future blog posts:
