If you have high Cholesterol, I urge you to consider reading this, The Great Cholesterol Myth, written by two physicians. According to Dr. Christianne Northrup, a holistic M.D., statin drugs are risky and are associated with an increasing epidemic of conditions such as "diastolic dysfunction," a serious problem for most women. She states that just because your cholesterol is high, does not necessarily mean you need to be treated with these type of drugs called statins, especially if you lead an active lifestyle.
In my own experience, my husband has an abnormally high total cholesterol. Fortunately, his high density lipoproteins (HDL) the "good" cholesterol is high and his low density lipoproteins (LDL) the "bad" cholesterol is low, where it should be. If any doctor tries to put him on drugs, it will be refused. He is 6'2" weighs 188 pounds and is extremely active.
I have always thought this subject received way too much hype, and now, finally there is documentation to back me up.
Another drug company drug-du-joir that is being refuted. It is about time. The authors even believe that lowering your cholesterol will not prevent heart attacks! Get yourself up to date by reading it now, The Great Cholesterol Myth.

The Low Lunge
Finally, our Western traditions are being interpreted on the basis of what we have already learned from the Eastern philosophy! The body cannot be disconnected from ourselves!
I believe that this is even what Jesus really taught. Friar Richard Rohr describes this beautifully in an unpublished talk from Assisi, Italy, May 2012:
"We separate our body from our minds. The mind is given pre-eminence in almost all people. The mind starts steering, judging, analyzing, fixing, controlling, and trying to dominate body and soul. Most people think they are their thinking! That’s what contemplation can help you resolve. It allows you to find the deeper self—prior to thinking about it, prior to the judgments you make and the preferences you have, and your endless mental commentary on everything.
It really doesn’t matter what you think about things, believe it or not. This is a revolutionary and humiliating breakthrough for most people. What matters is WHAT IS.
Your mind doesn’t make you human. You are something bigger than your thinking.
Where the mind gets preeminence, the body becomes the lower entity. Many of the problems we have with addiction, obesity, anorexia, and sex are all to do with this feeling that the body is not good, worthy, or holy. Sexual addiction is just a body trying to compensate, as are drugs, alcohol, overeating, overbuying, and overdressing.
Jesus, however, has patient sympathy for what we later called the sins of the flesh. He is never harsh or judgmental here. Jesus is only hard on what we call sins of the spirit—arrogance, pride, hypocrisy, ambition, and deceit. These are the sins that really destroy the soul and separate us from God and other people."
A labyrinth walk is a symbolic journey . . . but seen metaphorically the difference between the labyrinth path and the real world become blurred.
When we remember to breathe, the whole world of relaxation, and therefore, optimal health is open to us. It is physiologically impossible to hold tension when you breathe deeply!

An epic adventure of mountain climbing on Vestal Peak, deep in the heart of the San Juan Mountains, Colorado
Elle and Rich on Vestal Peak summit!
On Labor Day weekend, my husband and I sumitted Vestal Peak, near Silverton, Colorado. It was our 96th Centennial Peak Climb.
It was an epic climb for sure. We were so very fortunate to have my stepson and his friend climb with us! It made the whole adventure just that much more fun.
The remaining 4 peaks will have to wait until next year! If the snow holds off for a few more weeks, we may be able to do one more. We shall see!

Pine tree growing out of a slick rock cliff
It seems that the Chinese Bamboo tree when planted, watered, and nurtured for an entire growing season doesn’t outwardly grow as much as an inch. Then, after the second growing season, a season in which the farmer takes extra care to water, fertilize and care for the bamboo tree, the tree still hasn’t sprouted. So it goes as the sun rises and sets for four solid years. The farmer has nothing tangible to show for all of his labor trying to grow the tree.
Then, along comes year five. In the fifth year that Chinese bamboo tree seed finally sprouts and the bamboo tree grows up to eighty feet in just one growing season! Or so it seems…. Did the little tree lie dormant for four years only to grow exponentially in the fifth? Or, was the little tree growing underground, developing a root system strong enough to support its potential for outward growth in the fifth year and beyond? The answer is, of course, obvious. Had the tree not developed a strong unseen foundation it could not have sustained its life as it grew."
