Freedom Health Podcast Episode 3 – 5 Toxins and 4 Heavy Metals to Avoid

This episode is an oldy but a goody (previously recorded on my live radio show…don’t call in, lol)! I dive into what toxins and heavy metals are affecting you that you might have missed or didn’t know about.

As I say in today’s podcast, according to Indiana Jones…CHOOSE WISELY! You have the ability to choose your destiny, but you have to make the correct choices! CHOOSE WISELY!

Check out what I have to say on this topic and hopefully this blesses you!

What One Mistake Are You Making That Is Killing Your Exercise Routine??

“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” ~ Benjamin Franklin

“Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.” ~ Abraham Lincoln

“Unless commitment is made, there are only promises and hopes; but no plans.” ~ Peter F. Drucker

How has your exercise routine been lately? Have you been in the gym as often as you would like? Once you do get to the gym, have your workouts been as effective as you wanted them to be?

If you answered no to any of these questions, chances are you are falling victim to this BIG MISTAKE that people make with their workout routines!

What you’ll find, however, is this mistake is easily overcome. You merely need to understand the principle at play. Once you do, your workouts will get dramatically better results than what you probably have been getting.

If you are getting good workouts already, don’t worry! This tip will give you EVEN BETTER RESULTS than you are already getting!


Sounds easy, right? For some people, it really is easy. For me, not so much. I’ve found, for me, that if I try to just “wing it” once I get to the gym, my workout sucks. I spend the majority of my limited time trying to think of what to do next. That doesn’t make for a productive time in the gym!

What I did to combat that problem is stop trying to think. That may sound counter-intuitive, but it really makes sense when you stop and think about it! I started going to a couple of different websites (saved right to the home screen on my phone). They gave me pre-thought out workouts to do, which saves me a ton of time trying to figure out what to do.

Also, (and best in my opinion) these workouts were created by fitness experts! That means you will be getting the best workout…and they are FREE!!

Head over to for free workouts. These workouts are great for anyone, because they utilize body weight movements! I did one this morning and I can barely keep my arms raised to type this message, lol!

Victim, Villain or Hero – Which are YOU??

“The problem that we have with a victim mentality is that we forget to see the blessings of the day. Because of this, our spirit is poisoned instead of nourished.” ~ Steve Maraboli

We’ve all been there. Someone has done us wrong, our circumstances are less than ideal, or our situation currently isn’t where we want it to be. As humans, our first reaction is to blame someone or some thing outside of us.

That is the definition of victim mentality; blaming others for our own short comings.

When we blame others, we are telling the world (or universe/God) we are not in control of our life. We have abdicated responsibility for our actions to another person or situation.

The way to transition your life from victim to hero is simple; acknowledge that you are, in fact, responsible FOR EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS TO YOU! By taking responsibility, you understand that you have the power to change your actions, which by definition, will change your situation!

I am not minimizing the bad stuff that has probably happened to you in your life. You can’t control what others do or think. You can, however, control how you RESPOND TO IT!!

(Check out my video I posted to Instagram this morning)

Make the decision to accept responsibility for your actions and your life will change from victim to HERO, which is what you were created to be!
