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...

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...

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...

Happy Remembrance Day

 

Happy Remembrance Day.

 

Today, on Veterans Day, we honor the heroes who lost their lives during the first World War. In Canada, we actually call it Remembrance day.

 

HI I am Andrew from the Foolish Couple. In our blogs, we mostly guides you on the 3 things in life that you cannot buy, even if you have an unlimited supply of money. Those 3 things are health, love, and time.

 

Today, not only do we honor the fallen heroes of days past, but we should also honor our own fallen heroes. The hero who I’d like to honor today is my dad. Isn’t it funny that you don’t miss your heroes until they are gone?

 

It’s been over two years since he passed, and he is still teaching me things after he was gone.

 

I want to share with you something that my dad did religiously, every night, before going to bed, all the way until he wasn’t physically able to do it because of his advanced Parkinson’s.

Every night, just before going to bed, he...

Known Toxic Chemicals in our Food Supply

 

HI, I’m Andrew from the Foolish Couple.

In our blogs we typically talk about the things that money can’t buy, which are: Health, Time, and Love. Today, I want to talk about something that is affecting our health that you may not be aware of.

 

I am talking about the Known toxic chemicals in our food supply.

 

While many of you may be following the latest sports scores, Hollywood scandal or the political issues that are happening, did you catch the news that can affect your health and the health of your family? I bet you, most of you probably missed it. It was buried amongst all the glorious mumble jumble of politics, scandals and sports. But I read it, and I’m here to share my thoughts with you.

 

There were two very important reports that just came out last week. One was from EWG which stands for The Environmental Working Group. EWG released the latest results of their testing for potentially hazardous chemicals in our drinking water across the...

Cold Water Thermogenesis

 

Hi,

It's Andrew from the Foolish Couple.

As fall officially rowed in September 1st, most people close off their pools for next summer.

As you can see my pool is super clean and it’s this time of year that I actually do the most swimming when the water gets colder and colder.

 

A lot of you may not know, but I do have degenerative arthritis that is particularly bad in fall and winter as temperatures drop, and that is one of the reasons I refuse to travel back to Vancouver or any other place that is cold for that matter for the next few months.

 

And anyone with arthritis can tell you how their joints hurt more when it gets cold.

 

But there is a saying in Chinese, to use “poison to fight Poison” and that is what I do during fall and winter, and that is to swim in cold water to help with my arthritis.

 

Swimming in cold water or Cold Thermogenesis has the benefits to reduce inflammation and to  boost recovery. And oddly enough a long enough...

When Should You Start to Worry About Longevity?

 

Hi its Andrew from the Foolish Couple.

 I get asked all the time, what is the best age to start worrying about my longevity.

Longevity refers to your physical health, mental health, energy, vibrancy and freedom of mobility.

 This week we are sharing our 1-week liver cleanse for Clearer skin, leaner body and no cravings to friends and family. But the cleanse is so much more.

It’s the first step towards longevity and preventing Chronic illnesses.

 Chronic illnesses are no longer an old person disease. It used to be that you don’t get Chronic conditions such as depression, psychotic conditions, hyperactivity, hypertension, high cholesterol, Crohn’s disease/ulcerative colitis and type II diabetes until you are older like 60 years and older.

 

However, that is no longer the case, millennials born between early 80’s to mid 90’s are besieged by chronic illness, with 54% of the generation's respondents reporting that they've been diagnosed...
