Re: fear of heights

Gonna agree with stephen. Exposure is the answer.
I do roofing work, and I have had guys come to work who are afraid of heights(you'd think they would pick another occupation I know). They either...

Re: C5/C6 bulging disc

It is not pain management therapy. It is understanding the cause of the pain and creating a cure.
And I do roofing and carpentry work. And I lift weights. There was every reason to think my...

Re: C5/C6 bulging disc

The fact that you have thought a lot about it is good. You are intuitive. You recognize that something does not jive, and this is accurate. However-you are trying to justify it with something...

Re: C5/C6 bulging disc

As Sarno says, if you can't make it show up on a test, it doesn't exist. Problem is there are so many people with bulging discs and no pain. And people with no "abnormalities" who are in horrible...

Re: C5/C6 bulging disc

Rachel,

Re: Vitamin D deficient in the winter

People are deficient now because we are an indoor society.
Eating fish helps. Lots of pollutants in fish these days though, got to be choosy.

Re: Does a Paleo diet really enhance athletic performance?

For me the large problem is always the meat and milk-not to mention fruits and vegetables-that we have access to in our country. What we do to the meat here is horrible. There are so many studies...

Re: Kettlebells and phlalates

As far as the advice not helping anyone, I disagree. It may change the priorities of people who weren't aware of such statistics.
Sorry, no harm intended. Just sharing what I know. It is all about...

Re: What to wear for cold/wet Tough Mudder?

Did it a couple weeks ago at wintergreen in Va. You will not be cold except for the ice bath. The course will keep you warm. I wore sneakers, shorts, t shirt. You will be beat afterwards, but its...

Re: Kettlebells and phlalates

With a small amount of research, I think you would find that the amount of phthalate exposure you get from Kettlebells is laughable compared to what you get in everyday life.

Re: Trouble Sleeping

i have to point out, you are not "forced" to, you choose to. If excercise is important to you then lighten you schedule during the day. It can be done.

Re: Eating when ill...what did our ancestors do? FAO Robb Wolf also!

I don't think people just died when they got sick. So basically if they had refined grains they would have survived? I'm confused by the lack of logic here. Perhaps they died from bacterial...

Re: Paleo? Where is the boundless energy?

Dominic,
You need to eat more and rest more, period. I find that when I go strict Paleo I shed pounds non stop. It may be that I need to eat more, but I already eat a lot. I would spend my time...
