Dr. James Marcum’s Top 10 Tips

In trolling around the Internet to find interesting things to report on, we found the following top 10 health tips from Friend of the Nation James Marcum, M.D.:

  1.  Drink water
    Water is involved in every chemical reaction in the body, and yet a majority of people are at some level dehydrated.
  2.  Get adequate rest
    Without adequate rest, the body is compromised. Make time for you. Go to bed earlier. Do not forget vacations.
  3.  Movement
    When we move, the entire chemistry of the body improves. When we fail to get enough movement, the metabolism suffers.
  4.  Enjoy the sunshine
    We need vitamin D for our mental health, bones, and other important chemical reactions. Since exposure to sunlight stimulates our bodies to produce vitamin D, try spending 30 minutes in the sun three or four days a week.
  5.  Eat more plants
    Plants are filled with disease-fighting and health-building nutrients and fiber. Try eating three to five servings of real food a day. There is real truth to the old adage: “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.”
  6.  Be happy and have fun
    More happiness. More endorphins, less stress and less pain. It is hard to feel stress when you are having a “belly” laugh.
  7.  Be creative
    Brain health is improved when we spend more time being creative and less time being entertained. Write a letter instead of watching TV.
  8.  Watch out for toxins
    Too much fat, processed foods, high fructose corn syrup, and additives are not good. Our body does not handle these substances well. Read the labels of what you put in your mouth.
  9.  Breathe deeply
    Take the time to take in 10 breaths, hold for 5 seconds and blow out slowly. Feel the stress being relieved.
  10.  Find someone to love
    There are health benefits in serving our fellow humans. Give someone a hug or help out a neighbor and see how you feel. I guarantee you will feel a lift.

Last Friday night we launched the new version of our PlantPure Entrees on Amazon, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive.  We are humbled by some of the great reviews, and are also taking note of the suggestions people have provided.  
One thing we noticed was a trend of some of our meals being delivered with seals that were not fully intact.

From Plants to Politics
From Plants to Politics

by Nelson Campbell April 18, 2017

I try not to be overly dramatic in my writing, but I think most of us would agree we live in troubled times. We might define these troubles differently, but most of us have this sense. Most distressing in my view, however, are not the actual problems we face, but our inability to work together to find their solutions.
