    Which is why I avoid them like the plague. A doctor helped kill my late wife.


    Docs don't cure you, they enable you to continue being sick so they can treat or kill you trying.

    Exactly!

    Today's medical system is all about disease management, not improving health. Docs have been taught to use meds to alter physiology rather than determine the underlying cause for a conditition - forget trying to REVERSE the condition, get the patient back OFF the meds, and make him/her healthier!

    Stumbling across John Bergman's site a few months ago was life changing for me. Made me rethink a lot about diet and lifestyle. (the deep sleep info is awesome!) Highly recommend his site!

    In my last couple of posts I mentioned Dr. John Bergman. Every Tuesday he does a health talk titled, "True Health Tuesdays" and he posts the vids on YouTube later in the week. This just in: starting with tonight's talk, he's going LIVE! I've been following these weekly vids since mid-march and I'm so amped to see him live!

    Link to Dr. B's FB page for those interested:

    Link to Dr. B's YouTube channel:

    Understand, there are some points on diet that would completely contradict what we as bodybuilders do. So take what you hear him say with a grain of salt, knowing that his goal (and most of his patients' goals) isn't about optimal performance in the gym but optimal health and longevity. It's caused me to rethink how and why I do what I do with my lifestyle, including my training goals.

    I loved Rocky Bleier's story. Doctors told him he might never walk again (after he "was wounded in the left thigh by an enemy rifle bullet" in Vietnam) much less play football, but he showed them through his work ethic and positive attitude as he came back to help the Steelers win Super Bowls!

    "Bleier played in the first four Steeler Super Bowl victories, and caught the touchdown pass from Terry Bradshaw that gave Pittsburgh a lead it would never surrender in Super Bowl XIII. He also recovered Dallas's onside kick in the closing seconds, sealing the Steelers' victory."
