Unfortunatley Terry Fox isn't exactly a house hold name, well maybe if you live in Canada, but even then, I think many people don't really know his whole story.  This isn't so much a post about the Terry Fox story but more so why we don't pay more attention to positive news than negative.

Believing in yourself isn't the easiest thing to do. There is so much doubt, so much unknown. I'm not sure exactly where internal confidence comes from but I can tell you it usually doesn't come easy.  Believing in yourself or lack there of, has a lot to do with failure.  The fear of failure controls so much. Many of us are simply afraid to fail to follow our dreams.

So I’ve had big names before, maybe none bigger with 2 million copies sold by Mr. Wheat Belly. He’s changed the industry in many ways, changes many lives as well.

I’m not one to say ‘stay away from wheat’, and as you’ll find out Dr. Davis isn’t exactly saying that, he’s saying because the industry has changed so much, it would be a good idea to not only consider what you’re putting in your body but the source as well.

I know there's a number of young mothers out there looking for information on how to help raise your children in a healthy manner.  Who doesn't want to give our youth an advantage at living a healthier lifestyle?

I asked Janabai Amsden who is the own of Rawvolution which is a raw food restaurant in Santa Monica California to come on the show and share some tips on how to raise healthy children from the get go!

She offers tons of tips from dipping her finger in Saurkrout juice to having 'herbal tea time' with her toddlers. Some easy tips to follow that we'll wonder why we didn't think of it ourselves and other advice we could all use

This interview is with founder of Primal Blue Print Mark Sisson.

Mark's health philosophy?

Really, my health philosophy is surprisingly simple. I follow a diet based on an understanding of evolutionary science. I think it’s more important to eat, move, and live according to how humans are designed and not according to society’s artificial developments of the last 100 years. Fortunately, this type of lifestyle is not only incredibly healthy, it’s quite simple.

In a nutshell:

  • Fresh, nutrient dense, high antioxidant, preferably locally grown/naturally raised food choices
  • Daily activity – whether it’s the gym or a walk along the beach, it all counts
  • Plenty of quality sleep, sun exposure, play, and intellectual stimulation
  • Avoid all sweets and sweetened beverages. Once you break free, they lose their allure
  • Time for fun – don’t take anything too seriously
  • Ethical behavior – because what goes around comes around
  • Taking responsibility for yourself and your life – openness to new things and ideas

Baby steps are steps are sustainable; if we do one thing at a time we can achive what we set out to.
