It's so much easier to thrive when you have structure. They say success is 20% structure and 80% mindset. I agree! πŸ‘πŸΌ Today I remind you to think about the structures you have in place.

Moe's Alley, Santa Cruz

nnnnnNNNNN DROP! and on the sixth day of May, or SEIS DE MAYO, the JUDO NO is to drop upon the stank-starved citizens of the world a most satistying collection of digital music files. The JUDO NO will play these music files with live instruments at Moe's Alley while the people feast on beasts and beats and twisted treats. no seats. no standing. only moshing and thrashing and salsa and swing dancing and twerking allowed. Local live-looping beatmaker OLRIGHT will welcome the honored guests with his fresh free flow frequencies...JUDO NO will then play their debut album in full, plus much much more...then to close the evening, KOOL A.D., former member of hip hop group Das Racist, will spit his multi dimensional free association wordplay over super sick rhythmatik tapestries. Any human not attending this magnanimous offering of delicious sonic fodder will have to deal with another meh saturday night. Don't give in to the meh. Act now. Be the first to discover all that JUDO NO. BUY NOW. BUY! BUY! BUY! or sneak in, whatever.

Health Upgrade this week: SPRING CLEANING!

Since we are going to be cleaning out our insides, what a great time as Monday was the first day of Spring, to clean out the clutter in our lives as well! Take a look at your car, refrigerator, bathroom, kitchen, closets... any places where you might have things you just don't need. DONATE!

There are a lot of great resources in Santa Cruz County for people in need. Pass it on!

In Chinese Medicine, we have Feng Shui. Even though we often don't realize it, we are having a relationship with our "stuff". If you look at the item and it doesn't make you feel happy, get rid of it!

Supplementation Webinar: Understanding Why You Need it

Supplementation Webinar: Understanding Why You Need it

Feb 20, 2:00pm

Start With Yourself

This webinar focuses on why we need Supplementation today and the foundational principles on what you need to feed the human body. If you're someone who's been wanting to take supplements, not sure if what you are taking is working or feel like you are taking too many, this Webinar may be great for you. It's also for anyone who wants to feel BETTER, who doesn't want to "buy" into the idea that we have to feel worse as we age.

Do I need to take Supplements and which ones?

Do I need to take Supplements and which ones?

Feb 18, 12:00pm

Optimal Health and Fitness

The foods you eat no longer contain the nutrient levels you require for optimal health for many reasons. Crops are raised in soil where nutrients have been depleted. Plants are treated with pesticides and other chemicals so they no longer have to fight to live, which further diminishes their nutrient levels and their phytonutrient content (not to mention the toxic exposure you receive from such chemicals). Animals are cooped up in pens or giant feedlots instead of roaming free eating the nutrient-rich wild grains and grasses they once consumed. Since cow’s stomachs are adapted to grass instead of corn, they must take antibiotics to prevent them from exploding. To complicate this further all of us are exposed to hazardous toxins and chemicals that poison our bodies, we live with too much stress, we don’t sleep enough, we don’t exercise enough, and we are inflamed making the nutritional demands on our bodies even heavier. Those with chronic illnesses are in even worse shape. Ultimately, the question is not how much of a certain nutrient or vitamin you need to avoid illness, but how much you need to be optimally healthy! Join LeTa in a brief presentation about supplementation and learn about which companies have integrity and are the best to buy from.
