If you've been a
reader of my emails for even a short time, you've
probably heard me mention my "other life" as a 2nd degree black
belt in karate.
I have the great
fortune to regularly work with a Grand Master instructor (an 8th
degree black belt) who believes in "reality training"...
...That means that
the fight doesn't always stay vertical with me on my feet. Many
times I get knocked to the ground, fight while I'm down there,
then get up again and fight some more.
And I'm doing this
as a small 49 year-old woman fighting a bunch of men who outsize
me and outrank me.
People have often
said to me, "I don't know how you can do it. Don't you hurt from
head to toe?"
I've gotten bruises, a black eye or a broken toe, but 99% of the
time, I feel great and pain-free before AND after the fight.
And that, my
friend, I attribute to these two things:
1- Having a a diet that
helps prevent pain-causing acid waste buildup
2- Keeping my Omega-3 essential fatty acid supply high.
Here's why these 2 simple measures are SO darn effective:
The typical diet
most people have is loaded with processed and fast food,
complex, hard to digest meals and refined carbohydrates, all
washed down with soda.
Be honest--if your
meals regularly feature meat, starch, maybe a token vegetable
and soda or coffee, or if your 4 food groups are Pizza Hut,
Krispy Kreme, Starbucks and Doritos, I'm talking about YOU.
Eating this way
creates a tremendous amount of acid waste in your system.
Now, your body is
very efficient and tries its hardest to neutralize or get rid of
all those acid wastes, but it can only do so much.
acid "backs up" like a clogged sewer. Then it seeps into your
bloodstream and gets absorbed into your muscles, tissues, bones
and joints, causing pain, stiffness and inflammation.
Ouch! That's when
you reach for the Tylenol, Motrin or prescription pain
But instead of
popping expensive pain relievers (and suffering their side
effects to boot), you can help get safe, long-lasting pain
relief by eating easy to digest meals that don't add to your
"acid waste pile" to begin with.
This is a snap
when you follow my advice in the Great Taste
No Pain system,
or for those of
you with gluten sensitivity, Great
Taste No Gluten.
Both Great Taste
No Pain and Great
Taste No Gluten show you how to structure meals that not
only taste positively scrumptious but are a breeze for your
system to digest.
That means less
acid waste buildup AND fewer joint pains!
The role of
Your body needs
both Omega-6 and Omega-3 EFAs--they operate together to protect
You see, Omega-6
EFAs ignite your body's defense mechanisms like allergic
responses and inflammation. These are important when, for
instance, you've sustained an injury or have ingested something
Omega-3 EFAs come
in and calm things down, promote flexibility and reduce
inflammation after the injury or emergency is over.
operates efficiently when you have an Omega-6 to Omega-3 EFA
ratio between 2:1 and 5:1 in your body.
The problem is,
most people have a grossly imbalance EFA ratio of 10:1 or worse.
People who eat a typical modern diet can have a ratio of up to
refined grains, vegetable oils and meats from corn-fed animals
(which comprise a HUGE portion of our typical diets) are
inundated with Omega-6 EFAs, but are severely lacking Omega-3
This leads to LOTS
of inflammation from Omega-6 EFAs, without the calming, natural
anti-inflammatory action from Omega-3 EFAs.
And as a result,
LOTS of people are walking around in a whole lotta pain every
But there good
news in your body CAN bounce back.
You can help
reduce joint pain dramatically (as well as your need for
ulcer-causing pain relievers) helping to restore a healthy
Omega-6 to 3 balance in your body.
By replenishing your Omega-3 supply with a pharmaceutical-grade
Omega-3 supplement like VitalMega-3.
VitalMega-3 is a super-potent, pharmaceutical-grade fish oil
that delivers a full 1,000 mg. each of the necessary EPA and DHA
essential fatty acids in every daily 2-capsule serving.
I insisted on top
quality fish oil for VitalMega-3. It goes through a rigorous
purification process to remove substances like mercury and
PCB's, so it's far safer than eating lots of fish.
Using the purest,
best fish oil available means providing a supplement that can
help a whole lot of people move a whole lot easier each day
(yours truly included)!
But you don't need to take my word for it -- see what Bjarne has
to say about fish oil at the ripe old age of 92:
read all your informative articles with a lot of interest, and
support you and your views and ideas. Today you describe very
much my own views and ideas relating to the Omega 3 fatty acid.
am 92 years old, and I do not have any indication of pain in my
joints or any place else for that matter. Why, do you think?
Well, I believe it is due to the fact that, coming from Norway,
I have taken fish oil ever since I left my native country and
came to the US in 1948 at the age of 28. In Norway I did not
need to supplement, since we ate a lot of fish - almost daily.
had a nephew in Norway who was a well-known doctor, and his
specialty was arthritis. I asked him one time when he came here
to visit us what he thought about fish oil, and his answer was:
"I believe very strongly in it. It is almost as if you oil a
my age, 92, I am a good example of the truth of that statement.
I can flex all my joints as if I were a baby - without any pain
or even stiffness. I sometimes tease my pharmacists in our local
drugstore by showing them how I can lift my knee up to my chin,
something they, half my age or less, can not do!
am now going to the swimming pool and swim about 1/3 of a mile,
something I do once a week.
Keep up the good work!
SB: I'll tell you
what, Bjarne, I want to be touching MY knee to my chin at age 92
too! You're my hero! Thanks so much for writing.
Now back to YOU:
If you're bothered
with annoying aches and pains and are popping Tylenol, Motrin or
prescription pain relievers like candy, it's time to see what
getting rid of acid wastes and restoring your Omega fatty acid
balance can do for you.
Let the unbeatable
team of Great Taste No Pain (or Great
Taste No Gluten) and VitalMega-3 get and keep you moving and grooving a whole lot easier for many
years to come.
By the way, I'll
be running my first full marathon this fall and 3rd degree black
belt is coming up next year for me!
