A few days ago, I talked about chronic inflammation, specifically cellular inflammation, which is inflammation on the cellular level. I talked about the three biggest culprits that is causing cellular inflammation today, they are heavy metals, such as lead and mercury, and the toxic chemicals that amplifies cellular damage, which is Glyphosate, and Glyphosate is everywhere.

 

 

 

Glyphosate is in our soil which trickles down to all our foods, it is also in our main water supply, so not only are we eating Glyphosate, we are drinking it, we take showers with it, we brush our teeth with it. It is also in many of our skin care products and even the food that we feed our cats and dogs are loaded with Glyphosate, which...

What's Cellular Inflammation

In the last blog we talked about inflammation and that there are two types of inflammation that happens inside our bodies. They are acute inflammations and chronic inflammations. Acute inflammations are beneficial to our body, for example when you cut your finger, the cut area gets red and inflamed as your body fights off the infection and then seals the cut area with a scab.

 

However, chronic inflammation is when inflammation goes out of control inside the body and may cause dilated blood vessels, attack our own immune system and epigenetics, the mechanisms that turn on or off certain genes.

 

So, knowing that inflammation can cause all these potential problems with our health, what causes inflammation, and...

It is officially the second week of the New Year and decade. What goals have you set for yourself? Are you still on track with those goals? Next to running our own business, The Foco Academy, I also help out at a local YMCA as a wellness coach and personal trainer.

 

I was fortunate enough to work on January 1st which was New Year’s Day for the short time that it was open that day. I saw so many new faces that I have not seen before in the last few months and it was probably the busiest day that I’ve worked at the Y. After all, it was the first day of the year, and I could see that everyone wanted to jump into their new years resolution to work out to stay healthy. But over the next couple of days,...

Well, we are here! The end of a decade! This is our last blog of the decade, and since today is New Year’s Eve, we’ll keep this one light. Tomorrow is a brand new decade. How exciting is that!

 

For many of us, during the Christmas holidays is when we tend to be the most nostalgic. We’d bring up old photos, review old letters and journals, and talk about some of the more memorable moments of the past year and the past decade.

 

When you look back at yourself from last year, or the last decade? Do you notice any difference?

Other than the obvious signs such as gray hair and wrinkles, have your body shape changed.

Do you feel and behave just as young as you were 10 years ago?

Or are you now less...

There are only a few more days left and we’re going not only into a new year, we’re going into a new decade! That’s big! It only happens once every 10 years!

 

So, how was your last 10 years? Was it just about the same as the previous 10 years? Do you want your next 10 years to be just the same as the last 10 years? If you are, that’s perfectly fine. Many people lead exactly the same life year after year, decade after decade. There’s nothing wrong with that.

 

But maybe there’s something that you want to improve in your life. Maybe you’ve gained some weight and you can’t seem to get rid of it. Maybe you’ve lost the energy and the drive to excel in your work....

Do You want a Veggie Burger

 
Hi I am Andy and together with Minna, we are the founders of the Foco Academy. We focus on mentoring and teaching the Success Principles and how to apply the principles to the 3 areas of life that money can’t buy: Health, Time, and Love Relationship.

 

Do you want some veggies in your burger?

           

Are you confused about all the latest fad diets out there? For as long as I could remember, there was always some type of diet that was in fashion during the time, and then a few years later, someone says that diet was no good and there’s a better one. Some of the more popular ones were probably the Atkins diet, or in recent years, the Paleo diet and the ketogenic diet. And then of course, there are people that says the Paleo is not good for your health and that the Keto diet doesn’t work.

 

With all the new diets out there, how do you know what is healthy or safe to eat? Are you just going to blindly...

Dangers of “Natural” Supplementation

 

Nowadays, more and more people are looking for natural supplements such as Ayurvedic and herbal medicine from traditional Chinese medicine to lose weight, for adrenal support, performance enhancement, digestive health or just general health and well-being. But there is one common mistake that can pretty much overwrite any of the benefits of their supplementation.

 

And that mistake is people make the assumption that because the supplementation is supposedly ‘all natural’ and is not a prescription drug, that it is safe for them to use.

Just because something is ‘labeled’ as natural doesn’t necessarily mean that it is good for...

Holiday Feast

 
[We are the Foolish Couple, Andy and Minna, founders of the Foco Academy. We focus on mentoring and teaching the Success Principles and how to apply the principles to the 3 areas of life that money can’t buy: Health, Time, and Love Relationship.]

 

Over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, we went to a secluded location about 3 hours from where we live, and there was 8 inches of snow on the ground. We had a blast, we played in the snow, built ugly snowmen, had snowball fights, tobogganing and made snow angels. We had a lot of fun, but at the end of the day, we were drenched in dirty snow and dirt and whatever else was outside.

 

So, what did we do? We took a shower, of course. And I’m pretty that’s what you would do too when you are dirty.

 

But what about inside your body? You may not see the dirt, but you probably feel it. You just didn’t know it. How do you know if your internal body is dirty? Lemme ask you this:

 

When you wake up in the...

[This is a follow-up to Part 1 of our blog series – The Matrix: Personal Development 101]

So, did you go back and watch Matrix part 1? If you were Neo, would you choose the blue pill or the red pill? Have you thought about what kind of ‘programming’ you’ve had in your mind that’s preventing you from moving on? Are they anchors that’s preventing you from moving forward, or are they engines that drives you towards your goal?

 

Awareness is the first step to personal development. Before you can develop, you must first know what areas you need to work on.

 

But, just in case that you are debating between the blue and red pill, I have one word for you: Entropy.

 

Entropy means a lack of...
