2019 Plans Newsletter



It’s time for some commitments. Here are some plans (not resolutions or goals) for you to consider.

Healthy Living
  1. Stop smoking and chewing.
  2. Stop touching your face with your hands. Major way to get colds and the flu.
  3. Stop wearing shoes that are too small. Toes need to spread out.
  4. Stop using microwaves. It damages food value.
  5. Stop using regular salt - use sea salt. Trace minerals are the main benefit.
  6. Walk and do other low impact exercises to lose weight and tone up.
  7. Fast briefly by skipping a meal from time to time.
  8. Drink 8 oz. of filtered water first thing in the AM and several more times during the day. Stay hydrated in other words.
  9. Eat grass-fed meats, eggs and dairy products.
  10. Cut down on sugar and grains.
  11. Eat organic fruits and vegetables as much as possible.
  12. Use natural cures when possible. See my Herbs for Texas book.

  1. Stop using toxic chemicals, go organic.
  2. Stop planting plants too deep in the ground.
  3. Stop using peat moss.
  4. Stop using pine bark.

  6. Stop catching grass clippings.
