When I Was An Egg By Paula Joyce

When I Was An Egg By Paula Joyce

EggWhen I was an egg, I was totally protected. I was safe, joyful, hopeful—looking forward to the ride. Life was gonna be easy—a snap. Everything was provided for me. I just had to show up and sail along. Actually, life as an egg was quite wonderful. Of course . . . there was that sperm who just came out of nowhere and crashed through my thick protective covering. Just like the male species—barging in and taking the lead. I had my eye on the shy sweet one in the corner, but then this bully just knocked him out of the way and compromised my cell wall without so much as a “May I?” or “Excuse me!” I should have known it was shades of what was to come.

Once he was inside of me, my life as a separate, independent sort was totally destroyed. I can’t go anywhere without him; and what’s more, he decided whether I’d become a boy or a girl. That just isn’t fair. I want to make my own decisions—or at least discuss things. But no, he just assumes the decisions are his to make!

Suddenly I’m subdividing and changing into—into a girl?! Now I’ll spend the rest of my life in subjugation! I liked it better when I was an egg. In fact, stand back, I’m rewinding this tape to the beginning when my life was mine.

Afterword We’ve all had our lives determined for us in some way by people, circumstances or thoughts.  Each life, regardless of gender, has its blessings and its challenges. Although there are many things we cannot control, Stephen Covey advises that we can have an impact within our sphere of influence. That sphere is strongest within our own lives.

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental condition and the most commonly diagnosed psychiatric disorder in childhood often persisting into adulthood.  As many as one in 20 adults have ADHD marked by symptoms such as inattention and lack of concentration, impulsiveness, and difficulty controlling behavior. Many other symptoms are associated with ADHD including hyperactivity, bipolar and panic disorders, anxiety, depression, and social anxiety.  Micronutrient treatment found to be more effective than placebo Researchers at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch New Zealand used a double blind study finding that the nutritional supplement Truehope EMPowerplus™ has significant benefits for adults with psychiatric symptoms of ADHD, depression, hyperactivity, impulsivity and inattention.

Losing weight on the Gerson Therapy by Howard Straus

Losing weight on the Gerson Therapy by Howard Straus

healthHow is this possible?  It turns out that “healthy” has a body weight component to it.  When the Gerson Therapy returns your body to a “healthy” or “healing” condition, it will find a healthy weight for you, tend towards that weight at its own pace, and, once there, will maintain that weight as long as you eat enough calories (of the proper food) to function normally.

Think about this: The SAD (Standard American Diet) is the average diet consumed by most Americans.  That includes gobs of sugar, HFCS (high fructose corn syrup), MSG, food processing chemicals, preservatives, flavor enhancers, food colorings, and very little of what you really need.  As soon as you process food, all the enzymes are gone, the suger, salt and other sodium content skyrockets, nutrients are cooked away or destroyed, and all you’re getting is toxic and empty calories.  Of course you’ll still be hungry after that kind of meal; your body is getting none of the nutrients it needs.  Some people react by eating more, blowing up like fat balloons, others respond by attempting to cover the craving and [toxin-caused] pain by taking increasingly dangerous drugs.  (The largest selling over-the-counter drug type sold in the US is analgesic, or pain killer.)  Neither of these responses is necessary, both are highly destructive.

Let’s delve into the mechanics of the above paragraph a bit.  First a few numbers.  The SAD contains approximately 140 grams (g.) per day of fat.  The average weight gain of the sedentary American is less than five pounds per year, otherwise everyone would weigh 300 pounds in very short order.  While many such people exist, they are not the majority of the population, or even the average.

Now, 140 g. is 5 ounces (1 ounce = 28 g.).  This means that every day, the average American consumes 5 ounces of fat.  In three days, that’s 15 ounces, or nearly a pound.  To make it easier to calculate, call it a pound.  In a month, or ten three-day periods, we consume ten pounds of fat, and in twelve months, 12 x 10 lb., or 120 lb. of fat.  Let’s say the average American gains about 5 lb. per year (that’s already a lot, because in 20 years, that’s a gain of 5 x 20 lb., or 100 lb.).  Again, the average American is a sedentary creature, not given to spending hours at the gym, preferring instead to spend the time in front of a TV, switching channels with a remote, not even getting up to select the show.

What does that mean?  It means that we are consuming well over 100 pounds per year of fat, and only gaining 5 pounds in a given year, despite being generally sedentary.  Where does all the rest of that fat go, if we’re not burning it off at the gym?

That’s easy.  Our body, in a desperate attempt to maintain a healthy structure (and that’s what it does best), is dumping most of that fat all by itself.  Imagine that!  We are already losing over 100 pounds of fat every year.  The only reason that we continue to stay fat, or even gain a bit of weight, is that our consumption is keeping just ahead of our body’s ability to get rid of the offending material.

What can you do with this information?  The opportunity is spectacular, if you just think about it a little bit.  If our bodies are capable of dumping 100+ pounds of fat per year, and clearly they are, then all we have to do to lose weight is to stop pouring so much fat into it on a daily basis!  Cut out half of the fat intake we are used to, and we will start losing 50+ pounds of fat per year, automatically!  Cut out more, and we can lose 100 pounds per year without having to work out daily, sweat, take time out of our busy TV watching schedule.  In fact, our bodies already are losing that much weight, but we’re dumping more in.  All we have to do is to start eating food that nourishes us, and stop eating the food that fattens us without nourishing our body’s needs, and we will quickly return to a healthy weight.

Does it work that way?  Of course it does.  That’s the way we’re built.  But nourishing food is not easy to come by in our culture.  The foods on offer at Safeway, A&P, Piggly Wiggly and other national and regional supermarkets are loaded with additives, colorings, chemicals, preservatives and other poisons.  GMOs, Aspartame and MSG are particularly harmful, as is salt and sugar, and even worse, HFCS.  Start eating fresh, organic foods, stop eating animal protein (meat, pork, chicken, fish, dairy, eggs, anything that comes from an animal), which comes with large doses of animal fat, stop eating the foods you know to be bad, and the weight will just drop off by itself.  Bingo, you’re on your way to a healthier, fitter you.

And, by the way, you’ll be powerfully protecting yourself against a whole slew of chronic, degenerative diseases, including cancer, heart attack, stroke and diabetes!

Technical Change and Adaptive Change: Overcoming Your Immunity to Change

Going through the motions is not the defining factor of character change.  For some it is difficult to comprehend why it is they have such a difficult time attaining the necessary skills to thrive in the environment of which they are a part.  There are times when people can objectively show the changes in their behaviors while within a situation; however, they still struggle to feel comfortable in their new surroundings.  What happens in these cases is the person more than likely has made a technical change; however, they have not made an adaptive change.  A technical change is the adjustment made in title or function, and an adaptive change is modification that involves altering more than routine behaviors.  Adaptive change is the alteration of preferences.   An adaptive change involves a transformation of a person’s outlook and beliefs.   This is something that I once found challenging while studying multiple martial arts simultaneously. Taking to the matter the martial arts I have trained for more than a decade, I have had to make adaptive changes before I could fully realize positive growth in the cross-study of the martial arts.  As similar as some of the styles were to one another, some of them had extremely different training styles and attitudes. 

In my experience people believe they can learn the physical skill-sets and thereby they believe they learn the style/art.  In this idea of learning the technical aspects of the art, learning the physical moves of techniques or forms, there is a tendency to believe one has made an appropriate total change, while in reality they have solely made a technical change; doing the form without the actual intent of the style.  To have a total change one must be able to face and overcome both the adoptive challenges and the technical challenges.  The technical challenges, in the sense of learning a martial art, are learning the visual aspects of the form set, leaning the moves to the point where one can, without pause unnatural to the style and form-set, execute the techniques.  The adaptive challenge is to be able to draw on the intended resolve of the style and form-set.  The same challenges are found in business relationships.

 In business, one may progress to a deferent position in the company, given a new title and given new responsibilities.  The change in title and responsibilities represents the technical change.  The technical challenges are to have the title change made official and learning the proper way to execute ones responsibilities.   The adaptive change happens once one becomes completely comfortable and proficient in the new position.  The adaptive challenges are the moments of emotional and mental disequilibrium involved with the overall alteration.  Moving from one comfort zone of which one is accustomed to another, may involve a time period in which one’s orientation will cause the changes made on the technical side to seem unnatural and uncoordinated.   This is caused by the adaptive change not being complete.  A person that is placed in a new managerial position may understand the technical aspects of the career change, they may understand the forms that need to be filled and filed, they may understand their responsibilities and when they need to execute their new tasks and errands; however, what they cannot gather are the subjective value-sets of the new department.  This inability to cope with the idiosyncratic natures of the new position is the adaptive challenge one as to face and overcome before they can fully realize their new position.          

When entering into new relationships make sure to understand all of the challenges you will face, both technical and adaptive.  Realize when you enter into new agreements with others there is more to becoming an efficient part of the bond other than you stating the existence and understanding what technical things that need to be done.  Make sure you are not only able and willing to change your objective natures; also, you must be able and willing to change the subjective natures of your being so you can fulfill the fullness of your new role.
