E27. Permanent Weight Loss! Ancient Healer in Tea
E27. Permanent Weight Loss! Ancient Healer in Tea In the Q Review Last week’s response to us looking at weight loss said it all, “please talk to us more about weight loss”! Ok, so let’s get ready for Q and Mike, two old dog PTs who have done it all, to lay out the facts. Actually it’s not that hard to understand. But as always you need to know the land mines out there, and that’s where The Balance episodes will lead us all forward. The Balance with Meiling Lee There was a man that lived over 1000 years ago who shaped the original landscape of medicine as the human race knows it. Out of compassion for all of us, the man started tasting herbs and plants in a mission to find cures for the ailing people around him. His journey nearly killed him, but even on a day of potential death, he struggled on to taste one more plant. It just happened to be tea he tasted. The journey that came next is nothing less than wonderful. Article in Focus @teasenz.com full article here As the God of Chinese herbal medicine, Shennong was fascinated by the healing properties of herbs and fungi even as a child. Legend has it that Shennong was conceived when his mother, Nü Teng, swallowed the vapour of a celestial dragon. Nine days after the conception, he came out of his mother’s womb with a transparent belly and internal organs. Three days later, he was able to speak. On the fifth day after birth, he could walk. On the seventh day, he formed a full set of teeth. Quickly, he turned out a big strong man and became the leader of his tribe.

E26. Bayer’s Horrific background Exposed! TCM for Permanent Weight Loss.
E26. Bayer’s Horrific background Exposed! TCM for Permanent Weight Loss. In the Q Review All of our fans and followers will already know about the horrific backgrounds of many of the pharmaceutical companies around the world. Scientists and researchers globally are all talking about the horrific damage chemicals are doing to our human bodies and minds. Mike and Q can’t talk enough about the subject because there is now a critical need for the public to be informed. This week we take a close look at a company who’s historical background is nothing less than scary, and I mean scary. But this same company has been targeting our children with its poisonous and addictive medicines for decades. How was it possible that the men who funded the Nazi Regime were allowed to become the main supplier of chemicals and pharmaceuticals to us in the Western world in this modern-day? Article in Focus @humansarefree.com full article here It also trademarked heroin a year earlier, then marketed it world-wide for decades as a cough medicine for children “without side-effects”, despite the well known dangers of addiction. During the Second World War, IG Farben used slave labour in many of its factories and mines and by 1944 more than 83,000 forced labourers and death camp inmates had been put to work in the IG Farben camp at Auschwitz in Nazi-occupied Poland. “These companies, not the lunatic Nazi fanatics, are the main war criminals. If the guilt of these criminals is not brought to daylight and if they are not punished, they will pose a much greater threat to the future peace of the world than Hitler if he were still alive.” The Balance with Meiling Lee So many of us are always wondering WHY we can’t seem to lose weight. Also, the question of “WHY am I gaining so much weight”, is frustratingly frequent. Meiling is a mom of three, hard at work every week, so how does she stay in proper shape and how does CCM view this subject? This week we take a look not only at losing weight, but also the mindset of keeping it off.

E25. Finally we talk Training! How communism undermined TCM
E25. Finally, we talk about Training! How communism undermined TCM In the Q Review In the course of stepping around the health land minds, we have had a lot of great feedback from you regarding the changes you have made with eating and overall product choosing. These are the essential changes for you, and they will strengthen and continue as you become a traditional person living in a modern-day world. But why aren’t we talking about training??????? One of our favorite fans asked me that question a week ago, so today we talk about training. Q and I have done and trained people in, nearly every conceivable style of general training. What is the inside scoop on training methods? What is their effectiveness in our lives and how should we understand them from a holistic viewpoint? The Balance with Meiling Lee Not many of us in the world realize the damage that communism has done to nearly every traditional principle that thousands of years of living have created. Today Meiling shares how, in the later years of Chinese history, Chairman Mao tried to destroy the powerful and benevolent roots of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine). This discussion helps us to see how the mind of a person, whether it be now or two thousand years ago, is the essential true healer. That is true for both ourselves and our efforts to help others. The Article in Focus By Heiner Fruehauf full article here The latter half of the 19th century and through the end of the 20th century has been a time of great political, economic, cultural, and scientific transformation in China. Chinese medicine, the shining gem of traditional science, has had to endure many assaults in this process, sinking the field into a quagmire where it had to fight bitterly for its own survival. This course of events can be called “The Century When Traditional Chinese Medicine Was Tied up in the Straightjacket of Utter Delusion.” –Li Zhichong, Director of Chinese TCM Association, 2002

E24. Why Cancer is in Household Cleaners? Vinegar a Revelation!
E24. Why Cancer is in Household Cleaners? Vinegar a Revelation! In the Q Review This week Q brings an amazing story of yet another person, harmed by seemingly unknown sources. She is told by doctors that surgery is the answer, yet she decides that understanding the cause is more important than simply dealing with the effect. She investigates and takes natural and simple steps to avoid the toxic land mines in our environment. Then her tumor disappears. Sounds pretty straight forward; well that’s actually how things are when you decide to understand cause and effect. The Article in Focus By Jessie Sholl @ experiencelife.com full article here When a pain in Beth Greer’s shoulder led her to a chiropractor nine years ago, she wasn’t that worried. After all, she led a healthy lifestyle: She watched her weight, meditated regularly, and ate mostly organic food. Greer’s chiropractor wasn’t worried either; he diagnosed her with a herniated disk. But after three sessions, not only was she not better, the pain was beginning to radiate down her arm and into her fingers. The Balance with Meiling Lee How many times have we been told that vinegar is amazing? A thousand! But wait till you hear it from the Classical Chinese Medicine perspective. Meiling, our powerhouse of Chinese healing is once again bringing what we keep overlooking into the limelight. Never again will you think, “I’ll get to making those natural cleaners next week”. The Article in Focus @supremevinegar.com full article here Like most things in China, vinegar has a long recorded history. The character for vinegar, 醋 or cù (pronounced ‘sooh’), is ubiquitous connoting both the condiment as well as a metaphor for a bitter life condition. Similar to in the West, the recognition of the medicinal benefits of vinegar was long known. In 1973, a medical text dating back to the Qin / Han Dynasties in the 3rd century B.C. was discovered by Chinese archaeologists. Known as Recipes for the 52 Ailments it describes treatments for many common conditions from snakebites to ulcers to venereal disease. Many of the ingredients are herbal ingredients that are still mainstays of Chinese medicine, but many treatments often include vinegar as the main or accompanying ingredient

E23. Phone wrecking your Day? Tax Payers Cover Flu Shot Victims
E23. Phone wrecking your Day! Tax Payers Cover Flu Shot Victims In the Q Review Starting the day in the right way is becoming a greater focus because it sets the tone of your day. Too often we start our day without first becoming aware of what is truly important in life. Now that so many are becoming aware that we as a human race need to make a few changes both externally and internally, where do we start? Quentin brings some light on the subject of how to make a start on becoming a traditional person in modern day life. The Balance with Meiling Lee This topic of the flu vaccine has disrupted every sector of our society, except those who have not investigated it enough. Meiling investigates everything! And so she should, it is you she cares for in every episode. How is it possible that we the tax payer now need to be involved with the endless claims against these dubious vaccines? Read on my fellow researchers. The Article in Focus! By Meiling Lee @ americadaily.com full article here Although the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program was established to compensate children injured by vaccines, the program is now compensating more adults injured by the flu vaccine. In May of 2019, 39-year-old Cheron Golding was compensated by the vaccine court for injuries after receiving the flu vaccination in 2013. She was diagnosed with transverse myelitis, where part of her spinal cord became inflamed as result of damage to the nerve cells. She suffered from paralysis, loss of vision, and other injuries. Cheron was compensated more than $2 million, the highest settlement from the U.S. government so far. Today we speak to her lawyer, Randy Knutson. So we just get delayed and delayed and delayed. And my clients are usually out of work because they’re paralyzed, they’re running broke, they’re losing their houses, and they don’t have time to wait. And the problem is the court is so slow that many of my clients die waiting to get paid or they go broke before that can happen. — Randy Knutson more articles here

E22. Arthritis Common & Why? TCM on Flu Season
E22. Arthritis Common & Why? TCM on Flu Season In the Q Review We commonly understand now that our environment has become quite toxic. The necessity to make changes is quite strong. So an important change to make, is to see critically where we have had our thoughts and habits created, by things like marketing messages and commonly set up events. Throughout the last few decades these have set up false, misleading and self harming notions within ourselves. Such as “the world around me is getting worse, I must use medication more”. Today Quentin brings to light the subject of arthritis. Like many modern day maladies, arthritis has become almost common place over the last 2 generations. Has it been made worse in our generation by the horrific toxic influx that we have experienced of the last two generations? Culminating into what we are experiencing today? The Article in Focus! By Gary Null, Ph.D. @ beyondveg.com full article here When addressing any disease, it is crucial for us to focus our attention on repairing the causes of the disease, rather than just the symptoms, otherwise the disease will remain. While treating the symptoms may cause their cessation, it is only temporary. They will return so long as the underlying factors are not addressed. When it comes to most diseases, including arthritis, there are essentially two ways of entering treatment – through conventional or natural medicine. While it is possible to combine these approaches, the priorities and methods associated with the treatment protocols of each vary greatly. I encourage as many people as possible to enter the system through a naturopathic or acupuncture physician, especially if prevention is your key concern Natural treatments address the underlying imbalances that cause tissue degeneration with potential of prevention and reversal. Daniel Nuchovich, M.D. says, “Many doctors rush in with colorful pills and recommendations for surgery before the cause is actually determined; this practice is a disservice to anyone with arthritis.” The issue with using x-rays or MRIs to diagnose arthritis is that studies show a very poor correlation between radiographic evidence of joint changes and loss of function. Pain specialist Dr. Dillard shared with me that the vast majority of his patients who exhibit arthritis on radiographic images are actually pain-free. The research demonstrates that many people with degenerative joint disease on x-rays do not suffer from any disability, and likewise many who complain of problems have normal radiographs, but this is rarely explained to the patient. full article here The Balance with Meiling Lee When it comes to using ancient remedies from the abundant civilizations around us, it may seem complicated. Nothing could be further from the truth though! The amazing world of Classical Chinese Medicine is the same. This week Meiling is sharing with us how Chinese Medicine looks at the common colds and flus. We all understand now that the process of getting these things is actually strengthening to the human body. But we don’t go to extremes, running around with no cloths in the middle of winter trying to catch them lol. How magnificent it feels to know that something as simple and selfless as making a nourishing soup for our family is all you need to do to help strengthen their immune systems during the flu seasons. With CCM, there is a whole lot of heart and benevolence woven into their common practices. For this reason, it has strengthened and endured over thousands of years. Flu Prevention Soup Recipe full article here There are two major types of common colds, and in the Chinese medical language, two names: wind-cold and wind-heat. Wind, cold and heat are three common pathogens which can enter the body from the exterior. Chills, aversion to cold, stiffness (especially of the neck), headache, and white or clear-colored phlegm are signs of wind-cold. Sore throat, feeling warm and/or agitated (whether or not there is a fever), yellow or green-colored phlegm, and aversion to heat are some indications of wind-heat. A third type of cold, which usually occurs in the autumn, is wind dryness. There may be a combination of fever and chills with a dry throat and dry cough. For wind-cold symptoms, ginger, cinnamon, garlic, cayenne pepper and onions are all warming foods with detoxifying properties. For wind-heat symptoms, peppermint tea is cooling, and also helps to release the pathogen. Chinese-style chicken soup is most effective for preventing sickness—when one is feeling stressed or run-down. Add to your favorite chicken soup: shitake mushrooms (fresh or dried), astragalus (found in natural food or Chinese groceries, also known as huang qi), and a small amount of seaweed such a kelp or kombu. Garlic and ginger can also be added. Steamed pears help to resolve phlegm and cough. Asian pears are particularly moistening for cases of dryness. Kelp and other seaweeds also help to resolve phlegm. Phil’s in your Corner You know, everyone needs a researcher/writer/good guy, in their corner. Well, Phil Speed is yours! Every week, Mr Speed is going to run down important subjects, from the simple to the profound. Enjoy this week’s subject, Why is it necessary to look fantastic? Why Is It Necessary To Look Fantastic? Let us today look at that question and what implications it poses. As you may well be aware, the answer to most things is in the question itself. Why, a question of the question, not a question about us? Necessary! What is actually needed, and what is actually only WANTED? That is the key. Look! Who is looking? You, me or everyone else? Fantastic looking! Can I dare say look perfect? The meaning here is, there is no such thing, we are all different and unique in our own ways, shape and form. The right way to look at this is self acceptance. With that also comes a state of becoming active, to want to be better in some areas and improve. Whatever that may be, fitness, diet, shed some pounds etc. There is always something that can be maintained better or re shaped. That does not mean we are lesser or not good enough, as we are not by any means. That reminds me of the graceful swan, paddling like hell underneath. Why, is the main subject matter that needs addressing here. Is it societal pressures, others opinions of us, seeking attention, playing to the ego or vanity. Extremes of our emotions can most certainly become our own distorted views of ourselves. Nature does not concern itself with looking good. Sure nature preens, baths and takes pride in appearance for the health of the mind and body. Not for any other real reason, other than to attract a mate. That is quite a legitimate reason, and continues looking good as a natural cause and effect of a stoic existence and way of life. Nothing superfluous, mostly looking good is a by product of inner qualities and a healthy way of living. If we look at survival, let’s be honest, most of us are in survival mode a lot of the time. Then that state has reasons to be fit and aware. Not for vanity though, not for the media and propaganda that has told us to be one way, and that it is good to strive for it. These are unhealthy and radical ways that have nothing to do with natural and fundamental ways of living at all. If we are blindly led into this abyss of lies, betrayal and demigods etc, then look inside and find the reasons why you are doing that, and for what, for who … There is a point then! For whatever the reasons are at your particular time of life, you can stop and wonder what you are doing and the reasons for it. Is it really you and what you really want? Don’t get me wrong here, the WANT is very powerful and has been tapped into by the big fellas and the marketing gods, making us do things that really are not who we are at all. Others opinions of us! Who cares, what others think of me is none of my business ok! In actual fact we do care about what others think of us, usually. It is more the case of how much it influences and dictates the way we live and what we do. On the other side of that is, if no one cared, then we would run around naked in the streets! But hey, with a decent body right lol !!! See the pardox there. Expectations! Traditional men and women in a modern world are keeping our own. When did we give so called others permission to dictate the way we live and how we look? When we adhere to stoic ways, with a balance in fitness (pardon the pun) those stereotypes fade away. The by-product of that is, more self acceptance and instinctively wanting to be fit and healthy. That naturally means you will be at your optimum right size for your chosen career, sports and activities … life. Live a natural stoic way and adhere to virtues and principles. Eat well and as organic as possible, or at least clean off your produce and filter your waters. Then this alone will produce a you that looks the best you can. Looking fantastic! Why would you even bother. The short answer is, it’s not necessary to look fantastic at all. Though the reasons and insights into why it is not necessary have to be known first. Countering the wrong reasons and clarifying the right reasons. So, go forth and look great if you want to. However, do it for you. Written by Phil Speed For The Balance in Fitness

E21. Flawed Diet Niches / Meet Meiling Lee
E21. Flawed Diet Niches / Meet Meiling Lee In the Q Review A sentence I have heard regularly throughout the last 20 years is, “healthy eating is becoming so complicated”! Or something like “you health food junkies are crazy”! It was all getting to be so complicated to just reach a healthy body and mind. Quentin and I have lived the era of these extreme eating paths. So why have things seemed to go that way? This week we look at the subject from a few directions and come out with a better and more balanced understanding of food and life. The Article in Focus! by Steven Bratman, M.D @ beyondveg.com full article here Obsession with dietary perfection can sometimes do more harm than good, says one who has been there. Twenty years ago I was a wholehearted, impassioned advocate of healing through food. In those days I was a cook and organic farmer at a large commune in upstate New York. Today, as a physician who practices alternative medicine, I still almost always recommend dietary improvement to my patients. How could I not? A low-fat, semivegetarian diet helps prevent nearly all major illnesses, and more focused dietary interventions can dramatically improve specific health problems. But I’m no longer the true believer in nutritional medicine I used to be. Where once I was enthusiastically evangelical, I’ve grown cautious. I can no longer console myself with the hope that one day a universal theory of eating will be discovered that can match people with the diets right for them. For the raw-foodists we always laid out trays of sliced raw vegetables, but the macrobiotic adherents looked at these offerings with disgust. They would only eat cooked vegetables. Furthermore, they believed that only local, in-season vegetables should be eaten, which led to frequent and violent arguments about whether the commune should spend its money on lettuce in January. Many of the most unbalanced people I have ever met are those who have devoted themselves to healthy eating. After watching these food wars for a while, I began to fantasize about writing a cookbook for eating theorists. Each food would come complete with a citation from one system or authority claiming it to be the most divine edible ever created; a second reference, from an opposing view, would damn it as the worst pestilence one human being ever fed to another. Finding examples wouldn’t be difficult. I could pit the rules of various food theories against each other: Spicy food is bad; cayenne peppers are health-promoting. Fasting on oranges is healthy; citrus fruits are too acidic. Milk is good only for young cows (and pasteurized milk is even worse); boiled milk is the food of the gods. Fermented foods, such as sauerkraut, are essentially rotten; fermented foods aid digestion. Sweets are bad; honey is nature’s most perfect food. Fruits are the ideal food; fruit causes candida. Vinegar is a poison; apple cider vinegar cures most illnesses. Proteins should not be combined with starches; aduki beans and brown rice should always be cooked together. full article here The Balance with Meiling Lee Today we start another path of personal learning and understanding. Quentin and I have decades of experience between us, but when you add a licensed Chinese Medical Doctor things really become interesting. TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) is not only a way that is purposely focused on “balance”, but it also has thousands of years of knowledge. This ancient way knows how to investigate a person’s unique system and body, and then give direction for how to strengthen it naturally. Let’s get to know our new mother of 3, Minnesota resident, and all around fantastic woman.

E20. Are Flu Vaccines Good & Personal Trainer Tips
E20. Are Flu Vaccines Good & Personal Trainer Tips In the Q Review In a world inundated with marketing and ferocious financial forward progress, we need to truly understand something before exposing ourselves and our families to it. When it comes to modern pharmaceuticals, there is even more reason for extreme caution. Yet this flu vaccine topic has gone even further because in many cases now your child is not allowed to go to school if she hasn’t had this new chemical and bacterial influence. How pathetic! Q brings to light some great research and societal thoughts on this very dubious subject that needs your scrutiny. A Personal Trainer’s Memoirs Some of the most precious resources in the fitness industry are the memoirs of our own veteran Personal Trainers. Like in any industry, if you stick with it long enough you become someone who has worlds of experiences and knowledge to share with those around you. Here I am speaking from the heart about how the fitness industry strayed from the beautiful simplicity of staying vital and physically fit. I share an overview of my experience with my very first client, who like everyone, just wanted to look great in a dress. It’s actually a very simple procedure for most people! Phil’s in your Corner You know, everyone needs a researcher/writer/good guy, in their corner. Well, Phil Speed is yours! Every week, Mr Speed is going to run down important subjects, from the simple to the profound. Enjoy this week’s subject, “Baking Soda”. What is Bicarbonate of soda A wonder white powder, that ought to be used in our lives. Natural, beneficial and helping greatly to live a stoic existence. Let’s get straight into this amazing naturally sourced product, how it can assist and help us in every way, every day. Lets see all its practical uses. There is probably a packet in the pantry somewhere, silently waving to you saying, pick me pick me! As it has long been known of, and is widely used, this salt derivative has many related names such as baking soda, bread soda, cooking soda, and bicarbonate of soda. The term baking soda is more common in the United States, whereas bicarbonate of soda is more common in Australia and Britain Vegetables Bicarbonate of Soda or baking soda, same thing, is the latest tested and proven product that takes all the traces of pesticides and other impurities from our chemically sprayed vegetables. Simply add a level tablespoon to a sink or bowl ( 3-4 pints ) of cold water and soak for 2 minutes, scrub lightly, rinse, wash and prepare your meal. Simple and easy. Even if some is still on there, it is all good and in fact can enhance the crispness. So a perfect rinse off is not mandatory. This product has always been available. Dating back to 1780 and further back in time, according to many ancient writings and texts, using the term mineral salts, so it has been around forever, literally, in one form or another. Bicarb soda is awaiting us to utilize it for our benefit and healthy eating. Even our stoic ancestors utilized a very similar recipe. There are many other uses, for drinking to restore the ph levels in our bodies, to have an alkaline balance, where cancer cannot grow, the healthiest state to be in, sure other factors are involved, yet the prevention or keeping strong physically, benefit of this alone is amazing. Here’s a tip Make your own self-raising flour – Combine 1 cup of plain flour with 1 teaspoon Cream of Tartar and ½ teaspoon of Bi-Carb Soda. Vwula !!! It is all natural – There are no additives at all, in any way whatsoever !!! No aluminum or any used in the processing. All natural food grade product that is completely safe . What is good quality Bicarb Soda and not so good quality? Naturally sourced of course, see below for further details. Check the label, it will state if it is natural or man-made. There is a chemical, man-made derivative, the Solvay method explained below. Where is it actually from? It is the result of geologic time. Southwestern Wyoming, was a large freshwater lake 50 to 60 million years ago. The local climate went from wet to dry, during wet periods, minerals in the rocks were exposed and entered the lake and then dried out to form trona deposits. The supply or recourse, trona, in Wyoming alone there is 56 billion tons of pure layered trona, plus 47 billion more tons mixed with other minerals. Currently we extract about 15 million tons per year; the Wyoming Mining Association estimates, there is enough to last more than 2,000 years. It comes out of the ground in the form of minerals nahcolite and trona, which are refined into soda ash (a.k.a. calcium carbonate), then turned into baking soda (sodium bicarbonate). athe ore trona, is dissolved in water and treated with carbon dioxide. Sodium bicarbonate precipitates as a solid from this solution. Summary In short, bicarbonate of soda, sodium bicarbonate, bicarb soda and baking soda are different names for the same thing. While you can drink a small amount every day, ( half a teaspoon ) for acid reduction and to keep an alkaline ph levels in a very heathy state, it is advisable to seek medical professional advice beforehand, due to your particular make up, other medications possible negators and to see if it is suitable for you specifically. If you already have too much salt in your diet, then it is not advisable. However, therein is the answer, eat healthy and this is a great maintenance drink with numerous beneficial qualities. So, come on, get using it now!, there is absolutely no reason why not, I’ve been using it and drinking it for years. Bicarbonate of soda is used together with a mild acid such as tartaric acid as the excipient in effervescent tablets: when such a tablet is dropped in a glass of water, the carbonate leaves the reaction medium as carbon dioxide gas leaving the medication dissolved in the water with the resulting salt.

Johnson and Johnson Not Our Friend In the Q Review The sad part is, it’s not a surprise to everyone that Johnson and Johnson have been found guilty of purposefully pushing lethal addictive opioids onto an unsuspecting public. The era of our civilizations has most certainly stepped forward. With the step forward comes new awareness. New awareness of the dangers that have become a common part of our everyday food, drinks and medicines for decades. The reports, reviews, research and personal and professional knowledge that Quentin Vaughan brings to “The Balance” is like being able to ride this wave of change directly toward health. If the powers that run Johnson and Johnson are willing to do what they have done, then what is their real thinking when it comes to the ethics that make, OR BREAK, the relationship between billion dollar company, and the people of the society that trusted them? Meet Chance Gibson PART 2 In nearly every walk of life, nearly all business arenas and industries, we hear something similar to “its hard to find a good person” or “it’s hard to find a good worker”. This has some truth, but when we consider what we as a world populace have been living under, the onslaught of LETHAL yet LEGAL chemical companies putting their poisons into absolutely everything, well we can see why our times have been tough, and our attitude sometimes poor. Chance Gibson tells his story of life in the U.S. His time of recognition that somethings were going seriously wrong in his beloved nation. His story resonates with all of us for sure. His path of family and friends, and the conscious choices that made his life a true health and wellbeing success are an inspiration for our future as a society.

E13. Gender Altering Spray! Medical Philanthropic Coercion
E13. Gender Altering Spray! Medical Philanthropic Coercion A very brave African American research scientist has won his fight to bring another terrible truth to the people. A widely used crop and forestry spray has been proven to disrupt and distort the body and mind of tested mammals and amphibians to such a terrifying extent that it changed them from being males into being females! Common Spray Atrazine Turning Males into Females Story by Union of Concerned Scientists: Dr. Tyrone Hayes remembers thinking the gig would be harmless. Approached in 1997 by the corporate predecessor of agribusiness giant Syngenta, Hayes—at the time a young U.C. Berkeley assistant professor—agreed to study the effects of the company’s herbicide atrazine on amphibians. Hayes was a rising expert on the endocrine systems of frogs, and he assumed he would not have been hired if the company thought there was anything to find. “My hypothesis was, nothing’s going to happen,” he later told Mother Jones. But Hayes did find something—namely, that atrazine seemed to be impeding the sexual development of frogs. Now, decades into Hayes’ studies on atrazine, his discoveries have most famously linked atrazine exposure with changing genetically male frogs into functional females, leading to a bitter dispute with Syngenta. Internal documents made public in litigation reveal Syngenta’s plans to harass Hayes in an effort to both discredit his science and tarnish his reputation as a researcher. Atrazine has been banned in the European Union over concerns that it is a groundwater contaminant with potential effects for wildlife and human health. Yet it is the second-most widely used herbicide in the United States, with a whopping 73.7 million pounds applied in 2013. As such, the stakes in the US are high, both financially for Syngenta and environmentally for the nation. Atrazine often washes into water supplies, particularly in the Midwest, and in 2012 Syngenta reached a $105 million settlement with community water systems over the presence of atrazine in drinking water.

Expose on Era of Wisdom by “The Balance” Part 2 of our 3 part series If you missed last weeks’ podcast on this game changer of a documentary, you need to go back and make sure you listen. The information in this documentary may simply be put as an earthshaking wake up call to abandon some of what we call “modern day notions” about our daily purchases and, more precisely in this doco, modern day understandings of how to stay healthy. Like never before, we as parents need to take seriously the return to traditional understandings of life, health and fitness, so that we can safeguard our families from many antilife anti tradition manifestations in the medical industry that we ourselves have been supporting and making prevalent for well over a century.

E12. Nazi Legacy our Pharmaceuticals
E12. Nazi Legacy our Pharmaceuticals The Balance is about seeing the holistic bigger picture of how our nations are being made sick and disease ridden. GMO, processed foods, chemical crop spraying etc are an excellent start and what we should all know. But to understand the history of our current “notions on health” and our own bodies, we also need to look into the less known history that has actually shaped some of the most unhealthy notions we could ever adopt. In many ways they have now become our common thoughts when we think about how to stay healthy. The Balance? Simply Abandon and Return to Traditional The documentary below is quite simply a pivotal point in helping us all to return to the traditional ways of understanding how to live properly with the world around us, and to becoming further aware of the terrible extremes some of our forefathers went to in the pursuit of huge wealth. These extremes are now killing human beings at lightning speed! In other episodes we unravel many areas of falsehoods, health risks and confusion that the current health and fitness industry is knowingly and unknowingly creating around us, but here, in this episode, the message is clear and resounding, “to return to the traditional health that we all had, we start by abandoning the self sustained notions, chemicals and food industry practices that have been driven upon us in the last 200 years”.

E10. Hidden Cancer Is Mass Farming
E10. Hidden Cancer Is Mass Farming Why has this horrible method of mass farming, this greedy irresponsible business model, that has been forming cancer in us for so long, taken so long to be highlighted by the main media? And why, even when we find out about the sickening truths of modern day farming, this mass production method, does it take us a little while to start our processes of changing, and or, completely abandoning this greedy mass production business model? Mass Strategy At Any Cost Many factors came together in the early twentieth century to make mass production possible. Henry Ford‘s decision to produce an inexpensive automobile that working people could afford was a gamble. He succeeded in convincing his financial partners to back his idea through sheer determination. Detroit’s history of mechanical innovation also played an important role. The city’s many skilled engineers and designers helped refine Ford’s early attempts and later helped build large factories to showcase his ideas. The abundant talent—similar to California’s Silicon Valley in the late twentieth century—allowed Ford to recruit talented employees. The immigration boom in Michigan provided Ford’s company with the unskilled workers for the assembly lines. The assembly line gave Ford factories a fluid appearance and dramatically increased productivity. Without the assembly line, Ford would not have been able to keep pace with consumer demand. At the same time, Ford hoped to maximize economies of scale by building large factories. Most important for consumers, the increased efficiency brought with it a reduced cost. Model T prices quickly dropped from more than $800 to $300. As a result of these innovations, workers were soon able to produce a new Model T every two minutes. The company sold 11,000 cars from 1908 to 1909, a 60 percent increase over the previous year. Ford then outdid himself with the 1910–1911 model, selling 34,528. Sales skyrocketed in 1914, reaching 248,000, or nearly half the U.S. market. The heavy demand forced Ford to continue innovating. He built the largest and most modern factory in America on a sixty-acre tract at Highland Park, north of Detroit. Ford’s net income soared from $25 million in 1914 to $78 million by 1921. Even the decline of the Model T did not affect the demand for automobiles. Mass production techniques spread to other car manufacturers. Alfred P. Sloan of General Motors introduced the annual model change in the 1920’s. The changing look of automobiles, made affordable by mass production, mirrored the changing national landscape. A sweeping car craze prompted the desire for material abundance that would mark the genesis of modern America after World War II. Advertisers, artists, and writers used the factory and assembly line to symbolize life in the United States. Often, they associated manliness with technology and engineering. Many looked upon the factories that linked American cities with an attitude akin to romanticism. Corporate marketing, advertising, and public relations staffs and outside agencies developed to massage this message into the public’s subconscious.

With its focus on the quantity of production, often to the exclusion of other goals, today’s food system is on an unsustainable course. The problem begins with and is driven by industrialized production of both crops and animals. Industrialization is a product of technological change, public policy, and, most recently, globalized trade. The lack of sustainability derives from reliance on the intensive use of nonrenewable and hard-to-renew resources—soil, antibiotics, fresh water, and fossil fuels, for example—but also from the waste and pollution created by the industrial model. For at least 50 years, American agriculture policies have promoted production of, and ultimately lower market prices for, commodity crops like corn, wheat, and soybeans. Over the last 3 decades in particular, these “cheap food” policies have exacerbated the negative impacts of an industrialized agriculture on the health of the agro-ecosystem, as well as on the health of the humans who must share and be sustained by it. Sustainability and health are two sides of the same food system coin. Policies that put US food production on more sustainable footing can help aid in public efforts to address the myriad crises confronting both the food and health systems. Food production, human health and welfare, and the state of the world’s natural resources are inherently connected. “Growing food is among the most essential services our ecosystem provides, since it is fundamentally dependent on the world’s atmosphere, soils, freshwater and genetic resources,” according to Rosamond Naylor of Stanford University. More simply, people need food to survive and thrive. The health and sustainability of the America’s agro-eco food system is a human health issue, therefore. Yet a number of leading experts in systems biology, agro-ecology, and public health now question that sustainability. That hallmark of industrialized agriculture, the intensive use of resources, is at issue. The unsustainable rate of use of renewable resources, like groundwater and soil, is one dimension. The intensive use of nonrenewable resources, especially including fossil fuels but also pesticides and antibiotics, is another.19 A third issue is that intensive resource use, when combined with the lack of natural cycles to reuse these resources on the farm, creates wastes that not only pollute air, soil, and water quality but also pose health risks to the people relying upon them. Risks to human health can be acute in nature, such as the risk of pesticide poisoning. More often, they are longer-term risks experienced by populations downstream or remote in time compared to when the pollution first occurred. The pollution of groundwater resources with nitrogen, the development of environmental reservoirs of antibiotic resistance, and climate change fall into this category. The following section describes a few of these problems in greater detail and begins to make some of the links between them, as well as offering examples of the interconnectivity of health and agro-ecological sustainability.

E9. Up Close and Personal with Mike and Q
Up Close and Personal with Mike and Q Today we get in-depth with our listeners about our own enlightenment on the path to well balanced health. Today we interview each other on our most important lessons from being in the health and fitness industry. Meet Mike & Q Mike: Now, without any further ado, I want to step into this time with Quentin. Remember it’s one thing to hear someone saying to you all about this scientific or chemical understanding of the way the human body functions, but that is not true wisdom. Those things are learned. I learned them when I was studying to be a PT. Quentin learned them when he was studying to be a PT (Personal Trainer). But when it comes to true understanding, these things are actually lived experiences. They are actually trained experiences. People who have trained for a lot of years, well beyond one or two or even three decades. These are the kinds of things that you get in The Balance in Fitness. So I want to make that demarcation. There is a big difference between the hype of what you see on Youtube for all of these different kinds of eating styles or understandings. Or of how they work and how simply the universe, the world, nature, your body, and your mind function together. Actually everything that is in our environment at the moment, especially in marketing works against it. So that’s what we’re here for. Mike: Now let’s get into it. Quentin,Where are you now? Where are you coming from and where’s everyone hearing you from? I’m in New York State on Long Island or as we say, we call it Strong Island and where I’m from, and I went to school, and was really born in was Brooklyn, which is more of a famous place. More people know about Brooklyn, but I grew up on Long Island in a place called Roosevelt in New York. The home of Eddie Murphy and Dr. Dre and a lot of famous people came from this particular area. I moved back to be with my mom after my father passed away a few years ago and before that I was living in California for a very long time. I was working as a trainer and teaching yoga and doing things out on the west coast. But then after my father passed and my mom became ill, she was diagnosed with what they call Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and I just felt that I was just too far away to, you know, be from her at this particular time. I was not married and my sister is married and has as a family. So I felt it was my honor to move back home and to spend some time with my mom and be of help in any way that I can with the expertise that I have with health, cooking, and all the things I’ve studied for so many years. I’m working with people you know, out in California, but you, my mom is not well, so that was the initial thing to move back home and to take care of her. Mike: What’s your heritage? Where’s your family from? Quentin: Ah, my family is all over the place, man. You know, it’s so funny people in America have so many different parts of them scattered all over the place. Of course, from a simple point of view, you could say I’m African American. I’m a black black man, as we say in this particular country. But of course, my mom is a Mulatto. So my grandfather on my mother’s side is an Anglo White Dude, straight from Europe somewhere around there. Anyway, he passed before I was born. And so my mom, you know, she’s very light skinned and my father, who was my grandparents on his side also passed before I was born. And they were from Brooklyn. So there’s that and then of course I did a DNA thing sometime ago and you know, I don’t even, you know, you get this DNA thing and this is a whole other thing. Like where did the New Zealand midget come in there? I didn’t know I had part of New Zealand midget in me. What is that about? When did I get the Maori from? I don’t know, you do those DNA things and it’s like, okay, all right. I had a purple head about 3000 years ago. You got a 17% Chinese and that made sense to me, since ever since I was young. I used to swear I was Chinese. The only people that knew that I wasn’t Chinese was Chinese people. They really had a tough time with that one, although that would politely agree. Oh, okay. Mike: Alright, next experience in the fitness industry. What have you done? Where are you been? Where did you start? Oh my God. Oh yeah. The fitness industry is like many things in the world that don’t exist anymore. There’s certain things in the fitness industry that have gone the way of the cassette tape. You know, it’s just certain things that I got into the fitness industry of course, because I was always a Chubby kid, you know, when I grew up. I had an affinity for breakfast cereals and sugar when I’m cooking, I grew up and my mom, worked very hard to raise my sister and I, and so I didn’t have a lot of parental guidance in that. I was sort of just left on my own to cook. So, you know, you’re a kid and you’re like, what you want? You want to eat your vegetables or a hostess cupcake? Hmm. See, I gotta go with the cupcake mom. So consequently, you know I was in those days, what they called “Husky”. They didn’t say derogatory things like Chubby. They called it the “Husky” section of the boys clothes. But then when I was very young, there was a day that I was sitting on the floor watching TV with my mom and all of a sudden, you know, you hear this thing, come on, “Woo” you know, and then it was Bruce Lee in the Chinese Connection. And from then on I’m like, okay, that’s what I wanna do. I wanna look like Bruce Lee. I want to have muscles like that. And that’s when my fitness journey really began because from there I began to read everything I could about Bruce Lee, how he slept, how he maintained his fitness. And then I would read magazines about that. And then the 70s, this is when things started to come around. So that was the beginning. That was the true essence of the innocence of inspiration. Yeah. You know, basics things at that particular point, you know, when fitness was in the 70’s, things were very basic. My father was a military man and my father would get up every morning and I would see him when I would go visit him and he would do, you know, 300 push-ups, 300 sit ups, 300 jumping jacks. And it was something, as a kid, you just look at him going, why is my father doing this and why is it all morning while I’m trying to get my Captain Crunch cereal in.

E8. How society has become so critically ill!
How society has become so critically ill! In a recent post on the Pew Research Society an interesting article caught my attention called “The Future of Well-Being in a Tech-Saturated World” and so I decided to breakdown this topic in depth for our listeners and what we found out was incredible. Today we’re going to have a look at something. We’re going to have a look at technology in the health and fitness environment in the health and fitness world. What we’re doing with technology, because as we all know, whether we like it or not, technology is trying to develop into every nook and cranny of our lives. And it’s not because it actually is giving us something good naturally. It’s because technology has been used most primarily by the areas of our world that we speak about quite a lot, which are the areas that are the development of products and services to sell to us to gain our money. And of course at the moment money makes the world go round, you know, so we can’t sidestep that point. But at the same time as we talk about in every episode, we must also be critically aware of the landmines. Click to Hear the whole Episode! Article Reference here: 3.
