Welcome to my May / June newsletter. I hope it finds you all doing well. I didn’t get a newsletter out to you in April and I am so very sorry; but I hope this one makes it up to you a bit.
I was recently reminded of the tenuous grip we have on life and of our mortality, and it reminded me once again that as much as we may feel we need to pay attention to and focus on our future and our security, we also need to remember that our time here is precious and limited. Focusing always on some far off hypothetical goal or the opposite of that, thinking constantly of our “perceived” past mistakes, holding onto anger or thinking about the wrongs we have suffered at the hands of others does nothing to make our lives right now at this moment any brighter, happier or more positive.
Yes, goals are important, they help guide us and keep us heading in the direction of our own choosing moving forward. I do entire workshops helping people learn how to set goals that work. And yes, we do need to remember past mistakes and even more importantly, we need to take responsibility for our own actions. But it is even more important to remember and to think of those past “perceived” mistakes as a life lesson and a means of learning. They should not be used as an excuse to obsess and dwell on the negativity associated with them. Learn the lessons you were meant to learn so that you need not repeat negative or destructive behavior patterns over and over again, but then move on.
Much of my work is focused on releasing toxic emotions, recognizing the triggering events of those emotions and releasing all the old baggage that we carry around with us day in and day out. When we keep our thoughts always focused on either the far distant future or the mistakes of the past and hurt inflicted on us, we lose our present; we lose the actual life that we are living right at this moment, and that is a crime. This life can be so fleeting, but it can also be so wonderful if we just allow ourselves to actually live it in the moment. Live your life with “Intent” and “Mindfulness” and watch how everything gets just a little bit better by breathing life, energy, health, happiness, joy and love into your life right at this moment and then watch as it carries over into your future, your dreams and your goals.
With that in mind, I’ve come across a book that I think you might enjoy and it is in the process of being launched right now. What that means to all of you is that you can take advantage of hundreds of dollars worth of free gifts if you chose to purchase it now.

Mind Programming is really two books in one. The first half of the book is the tell-all story that uncovers the unseen influences that are so pervasive, penetrating and effective. The second half of the book is all about the tools and technologies you can use to cleanse your mind of the non-sense you may not have even recognized as being present before reading this liberating book. Think about it. How many original thoughts do you really have? How many thoughts are about your limitations, your fears, your anxieties, the things you want, and so forth. You will learn that from sickness and anxiety to the way you comb your hair and dress, and so much more, are all a part of what you have been trained to think and choose. You will also learn some very simple easy-to-use tools that can free your mind and empower your being.
In a period when fear has reached a frenzied pitch, Taylor shines a brilliant spotlight to dispel the darkness!

Linda Simmon, C.Ht.
I am offering you lots and lots of health tips today, three times more than usual, but things I want you all to think about a bit.
- It's not cockeyed to be an optimist.
In fact, looking on the bright side can help keep you feeling strong and steady.
One study after another has found that an optimistic attitude can help people avoid illness as they age. But the benefits of an upbeat attitude don't stop there. Even if something bad does happen -- say a broken hip -- optimists are more likely to bounce back, while others may slide into frailty. So if anyone gives you a hard time about always looking on the bright side, shrug them off. And enjoy the last laugh.
I just recently discovered what can happen when we decrease our Vitamin D and it wasn’t very pleasant. Every injury that I’ve ever sustained during this life started to hurt. It was even getting hard just to get up and sit down. I had no idea what was going on. But then I picked up my Cod Liver Oil (which includes Vitamin D) supplement that I’ve taken for years. I had run out about a month ago, but I was taking Omega supplements and assume that would be fine. It wasn’t. The morning after I took my first capsule again, 90% of the pain was gone and I’ve been fine ever since. Believe me, I will never run out again. And, here are a few other reasons why Vitamin D is good for you.
Up your intake of the cancer-fighting vitamin D during gloomy winter months.
Cloudy winter days may leave you deficient in vitamin D, an important cancer-fighting nutrient that your body can manufacture using sunlight. Research shows that vitamin D may help reduce the risk of colon, breast, prostate, and ovarian cancers. Seek out fortified cereal and dairy products or a supplement to help ensure you get the optimal amount.
- Vitamin D enhances immunity, helps the body utilize calcium, and may help reduce the risk of many cancers.
Your skin manufactures vitamin D with help from the sun so you may be deficient in this vitamin during months when sunshine hours are fairly short and the weather brings more clouds. You're more likely to be deficient in vitamin D if you live in extreme northern locales or have darker skin. Make up for the lack of sunshine by including ample amounts of vitamin D in your diet. Food sources of vitamin D include Atlantic mackerel, eggs, and fortified cereal and dairy products.
And now, several suggestions that may help present cancer and heart disease:
- Think orange, yellow, red, and green to protect your DNA.
Carotenoids such as beta-carotene, lutein, and lycopene may help prevent the kind of DNA damage that contributes to cardiovascular disease and cancer. Bright orange, yellow, red, and green fruits and veggies are good sources of these carotenoids, so pile your plate high with carrots, sweet potatoes, squash, red bell peppers, spinach, and kale.
Fiery peppers may hold cancer prevention powers.
Capsaicin, the compound in chili peppers that gives them their heat, may help protect against liver cancer, according to a recent study in which capsaicin helped kill cancerous liver cells. Use hot salsa made with chili peppers to flavor your favorite foods, such as omelets, mixed vegetable dishes, and burritos.
Stock up on Brassica vegetables at the grocery store for some of the best disease-fighting food options around.
The group of Brassica vegetables includes broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, and cauliflower. Adding a few servings of these vegetables to your menu each week may help you live a longer life. Recent research has revealed that Brassica vegetables are rich in allyl isothiocyanate, a compound credited with inhibiting cancer cell proliferation.
Add chopped cabbage to your salads once a week to help reduce your risk of lung cancer.
Each year lung cancer affects almost 175,000 people, of whom as many as 15 percent are non-smokers. Research suggests cabbage may be a good preventive measure for those people.
A Rainbow of Cancer Protection
Is your plate green, orange, and yellow? If not, you may be at higher risk for a certain kind of cancer. A diet rich in colorful vegetables, particularly green, yellow, and orange ones, was associated with a 50 percent reduction in pancreatic cancer risk in a recent study.
Eat your beans to guard against a common cancer.
Eating beans at least twice per week may reduce the risk of breast cancer, a new study of women reveals. The fiber, flavonols, and other beneficial phytochemicals in beans may explain their cancer-fighting powers. Good choices include black or red beans, garbanzo beans, and soybeans.
The teeny pea may pack a mighty anticancer punch.
Pack your pantry with bean, pea, and lentil soups to warm you up all season long. Peas, lentils, and beans contain a compound that a recent study revealed may help protect you against cancer. The compound, inositol pentakisphosphate, inhibits a key pathway in cancer cell growth. The discovery may one day lead to new cancer-fighting treatments.
Pairing veggies with avocado may help you get the full power of your produce.
Healthy fats in avocados aid carotenoid absorption, a recent study reveals. Carotenoids are the bright red, orange, and yellow pigments of colorful fruits and vegetables. These carotenoids have antioxidant properties that may help decrease the risk of heart disease and certain kinds of cancer.
Reach for juicy apples for a healthy dose of disease prevention.
Apples provide your body with quercetin, a flavonoid antioxidant that protects cells against wear and tear that can contribute to chronic conditions such as heart disease and cancer. Just don't peel them; most of the quercetin found in apples is in the skin, so it's best to wash the fruits well and eat them whole.
That handy yellow fruit with the slippery peel could help keep your kidneys healthy.
New evidence suggests that eating bananas regularly may help reduce the risk of kidney cancer. Women in the study who ate the most bananas had the lowest risk of kidney cancer. Root vegetables, such as carrots and beets, and leafy green vegetables also appeared to have a protective effect.
Olive oil isn't only a boon to heart health. New research shows it may have other
Oleic acid -- a healthy monounsaturated fat found in olive oil -- may help disarm a gene that prompts breast cancer cells to grow and divide, a recent study revealed. Add this health-friendly fat to your diet by sautéing veggies and other foods in olive oil instead of butter. Choose an olive oil-based dressing for salads, too.
Get a health blast by stocking up on the season's freshest strawberries.
Experts agree: a diet rich in fruits and vegetables can reduce your risk of chronic diseases. And strawberries are one of the healthiest fruit choices around. In addition to delivering a high dose of heart-healthy vitamin C, strawberries are packed with phytochemicals and flavonoids that have been credited with cancer-fighting powers.
A diet high in fiber-rich vegetables may be a boon to male health.
Men whose diets were highest in fiber in a recent study had an 18 percent lower risk of prostate cancer compared to men in the study who ate the least fiber. Mainly fiber from vegetable sources appeared to be beneficial. Fiber-rich vegetables include cabbage, broccoli, and peas.
Controlling your sweet tooth could help reduce your risk of cancer.
A diet that includes an overabundance of foods that rapidly boost blood sugar, such as sweets or sugary soft drinks, may boost colorectal cancer risk, according to research. In a study, women who had an abundance of these foods in their diets had almost a three-fold increase in colorectal cancer risk.
For extra anti-cancer benefits, spice up stir-fry dishes, soups, and fresh fish with ginger.
Ginger possesses two anti-carcinogenic compounds, 6-gingerol and 6-paradol. Studies show that these compounds may help inhibit certain cell transformations that could lead to cancer. The 6-gingerol content of processed ginger may vary greatly, so choose fresh ginger whenever possible.
Eating an orange a day may be one of the secrets to living younger longer.
According to study results, a mere one extra serving of citrus fruits each day may reduce the risk of cancers of the mouth, larynx, and stomach by as much as 50 percent. Researchers credit the antioxidant properties of vitamin C-rich citrus fruits for the possible cancer-fighting benefits.
To get the most health benefits out of your fresh garlic, toss it into your recipes at the
Garlic is an excellent source of allicin, a plant compound that has been shown to inhibit the growth of certain cancer cells. However, overcooking garlic may destroy some of its beneficial compounds. Toss chopped, fresh garlic into your cooking just a few minutes before it's done to retain more of its nutrition.
If you're eating tomatoes to protect your prostate, keep the whole fruit in mind.
Several studies have suggested that the lycopene in tomatoes can help protect the prostate from carcinogenic cell changes. However, choose whole tomatoes over lycopene pills or supplements. A new animal study revealed that it may be the whole tomato -- not just the lycopene in it -- that is beneficial to prostate health.
Faithfully taking your multivitamin daily may bring anti-cancer benefits down the road.
The latest cancer research reveals that people who take a daily multivitamin may reduce their risk of colon cancer. In the study, after 10 years of multivitamin use, people experienced as much as a 30 percent reduction in colon cancer risk compared to people who skipped multivitamins.
For extra cancer-fighting power, add cooked barley to your soups, stews, and side dishes.
Barley is an excellent source of selenium, and research suggests that selenium may have cancer-fighting powers. In cell studies, the nutrient not only inhibited the growth of colon cancer cells, but it also appeared to reduce cancer-causing cell damage to skin cells. Other good sources include turkey and mushrooms.
A few short, brisk walks each week may be enough to help you ward off breast cancer.
In a large study of older women, breast cancer risk was reduced by almost 20 percent in women who walked briskly for about an hour and a half each week -- the equivalent of three 30-minute walks. To see if you're walking fast enough, try talking; conversation should be more difficult when you are exerting yourself.
Whole grains aren't the only way to get your fill of fiber. You can sneak more fiber into your diet with vegetables such as broccoli, too.
A cup of boiled broccoli contains about 4.5 grams of fiber. Studies show that doubling the fiber intake of people with low dietary fiber intake could reduce colorectal cancer risk by as much as 40 percent. Other high-fiber veggies include peas, artichokes, and winter squash.
Getting a good night's rest may be an important part of cancer prevention.
A recent study revealed there may be a connection between poor sleep quality and cancer incidence. Poor sleep appears to disrupt the patterns of certain hormones that may influence cancer cells. These hormonal disruptions could reduce a person's defenses against the development or worsening of cancer.
