Research demonstrates that exercise is an important component in treating such ailments and debilitating illness such as depression, stroke, heart disease, brain or cognitive malfunction,and Alzheimer's disease.

Eight (8) Principles for Finding the Fountain of Youth

Yesterday, I had an enjoyable evening as a guest on As soon as that program is edited, I will let everyone know, as it will be placed on YouTube. A number of questions from the panel were related to the horse as an athlete and the Tevis Cup. I was happy to share a number of Dr. Jim Steere stories although some of which were not in my book. I also recruited a potential ride and tie participant, a member of the panel. I will keep you posted on that development.

 This Saturday, I am reminding everybody of the juvenile diabetes trail run at Cronin ranch. Hope to see you there.

 On May 31, I will be presenting a paper to the Lincoln Hills community Association in Lincoln, California.

 To illustrate the problem, let’s take a look at the state of adult health in our country. Research , provided by a 2008 survey , by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention reported the following results : only 13% of adults felt full of life all the time in the previous 30 days; only 11% of adults felt cheerful all the time in the previous 30 days; only 9.8% of adults strongly agree that their life is close to their ideal; only 21% of adults strongly agreed that their life has a clear sense of purpose; only 19% of adults strongly agreed that they are satisfied with their life; only 15% of surveyed adults said they felt calm and peaceful all the time in the previous 30 days. How would you rate yourself on those categories? Hopefully, you would do better than the population studied.

 Do not allow road blocks such as cardiovascular disease to interrupt your journey, as mortality statistics reveal that more people die every year from this disease than any other cause in the US alone? For instance, nearly 2600 people die from cardiovascular disease, every single day; and further that many people who suffer a heart attack, stroke, or have abnormal cholesterol levels, also eat healthy, and exercise.

 If you happen to have any the following conditions, medical history or lifestyle practices, you are at immediate serious risk for vulnerability to cardiovascular disease: a parent or sibling with cardiovascular disease of any kind; elevated cholesterol or currently on a Statin drug; elevated triglycerides; overweight; lack of regular exercise; poor eating habits; hypertension-even if on medication; diabetes; erectile dysfunction; or smoking. It is easy to see why cardiovascular disease is the number one killer. However there is something you can do about it.
