A SIMPLE, FUN TECHNIQUE CAN HELP MANY AVOID THIS PROBLEM 

A man’s body has been preprogrammed by evolution to orgasm as fast as possible. The better to sooner initiate the joining of ovum and spermatozoa before coitus could be interrupted by a cataclysmic event, and thereby increasing the odds that new humans would be created.

If you have ever seen animals engaged in sex you will notice that it’s all over quickly. They follow their programming only, without thought or planning. There is no finesse, no technique, no lingering, no concern about a partner’s satisfaction. Just the male working diligently to get the job done fast. (Admittedly, there is plenty of interesting foreplay behavior in the animal kingdom.)

When you hop on your partner, quickly lose control and hop right off, you too are just following your programming without thought or planning. But said behavior will not endear you to your partner.

Speedy ejaculation was a noble sentiment eons ago when the evolutionary goal was to populate the globe with humans, but it is of questionable value now, if any. Nowadays, with 7.5 billion people in the world, we aren’t as concerned with using sex to make other humans, as we are with using it to enjoy ourselves and others. Simply put, PE ends the fun too soon.

There is no quick fix by way of a supplement, and what I’m going to tell you won’t work for a lot of men. This post is about your ability to strengthen your “sexual will” by practicing an exercise of denial during the act. It will  help you build your “sexual will” the same way you might try to strengthen a muscle through targeted physical exercise. Just know that it can be done.

______________________________________________________________ 

Note: Women, and men, don’t want a partner who orgasms before they can even get into a groove. They also don’t want an automaton who can bang away all night without ever getting lost in the moment. Believe it or not, there are men who have too much control, and it makes them boring lovers. The following exercise will help many of you increase your ability to hold back an orgasm. But remember, if you take it too far and get too good at it, it can make you appear disinterested. Find a nice balance with the minimum goal being to outlast your partner’s orgasm.

Note: Also worthy of mention is that some women “suffer” from premature orgasm as well. They love the act and want it to last, but can’t control themselves. They too orgasm sooner than they would like, and they too can be helped by this exercise.

_____________________________________________________________

THE START/STOP METHOD

Don’t use porn during the exercise. It will get you too excited and interfere with your ability to remain in control.

The goal of this exercise is to prolong how long you last during the act, not to facilitate your path to orgasm. The basis for this exercise is that you will practice denial all the way through the act, and thereby strengthen your ability to hold back an orgasm. You will do this with timed pauses where you remain in penetration but stop all activity.

You will need a clock with a second hand to time your active and pause periods.

THE FOUR LEVELS OF THE EXERCISE

Even if you can last a lot longer than the times specified here, follow them anyway when doing the exercise. You might be happily surprised at your increased performance and duration over time. The longer the act lasts, the more pleasure you will experience. Isn’t that the point?

Stay at each level until you can make the act last 15 minutes. When you can remain in penetration for 15 minutes without losing control move up to the next level. Even when you reach Level 4, make yourself adhere to the active and pause periods during the exercise to ensure that your “sexual will” remains strong.

Level 1:

Begin the act, alone or with a partner.

Stop after 30 seconds.

Wait 30 seconds.

Repeat, so that you are on for 30 seconds and off for 30 seconds.

If you find that you are unable to last even for the first 30 seconds, just stop sooner. If necessary, start at 10 seconds active and 30 seconds paused. Then slowly increase the active times until you reach Level 1.

If you orgasm before you can even enter your partner, you will need to practice alone until you can go for at least 8 minutes without losing control. You owe at least that much time to any potential partner.

Level 2:

Begin the act, alone or with a partner.

Stop after 60 seconds.

Wait 30 seconds.

Repeat, so that you are on for 60 seconds and off for 30 seconds. 

Level 3:

Begin the act, alone or with a partner.

Stop after 90 seconds.

Wait 30 seconds.

Repeat, so that you are on for 90 seconds and off for 30 seconds. 

Level 4:

Begin the act, alone or with a partner.

Stop after 2 minutes.

Wait 30 seconds.

Repeat, so that you are on for 2 minutes and off for 30 seconds. The goal at this level is to last 16 minutes, not 15 as in the other levels. 

Once you have mastered Level 4—gone 16 minutes without losing control—you can continue to add 30 seconds to the active stage for each session, but always maintain a minimum 30 second pause interval. Yes, pauses count toward the time period, because you remain in penetration the whole time.

Try to work your way up to remaining in penetration for 25 minutes to an hour before orgasm. You don’t have to stop there; you can go for hours using the start/stop method to remain in control. 

THE PAUSES

The idea behind the 30 second pauses is that they give you a chance to calm down and stay in control.

During pauses, all your energy should be focused on staying in control and not giving in to pleasure, to prevent orgasm. If 30 seconds are not enough to slow you down, increase the pauses to 45 seconds, or even a minute or more. Whatever it takes to stay in control. Never pause for less than a 30 second interval.

Down time during the pauses is not dead time. It is a whole different pleasure experience. It is rather like floating in a blanket of sensuality, more subdued than what movement brings, but still sexually pleasurable.

THE ACTIVE STAGES

It will help if during the active parts you concentrate on not holding on to the pleasure you’re feeling, not letting it build up. What builds up must release; release is what you’re trying to forestall. Holding back release is the reason for the pauses.

Rather, picture that the sensation comes into your brain, is experienced by you in the fullest way possible, and then flows down through your body and out through the soles of your feet. When you feel it building up inside, tell yourself to let go. Don’t hold on to the sensations, instead let them drop away and flow out of you.

The point is by not letting pleasure build up, you increase your control over when you orgasm.

Ordinarily, when engaged in sex, pleasure takes over and leaves you pretty much helpless. If you can remain in control during the pauses you can learn to give and accept pleasure for hours without losing control. It will take practice and plenty of discipline, but it’s worth the trouble.

______________________________________________________________

Note: If in the beginning you fail more than you succeed, keep trying. Also know that you don’t have to leave your partner hanging while you mope about your failure and suck up the proffered pity. Get over it and get back in there. You still have functioning hands, mouth, and a tongue, so get busy. Help your partner over the hump by other means. Use a toy if you have to, but get it done.

SCULPT AND SHAPE YOUR BUTT & RELIEVE LOWER BACK PAIN   

CATEGORY: 8: Exercise & Fitness

The following exercises have both physical and psychological benefits. They are designed to lift, tighten, and shape your rear end, and in the process strengthen your lower back muscles, lessening pain in that area. A tight shapely behind is good for more than attracting and keeping lovers. It helps support your lower back as well. And it makes you feel pretty good about yourself, with all those extra eyes checking you out as you pass by.

THE BUTT

Culturally big butts are all the rage now, and it’s comforting to posses that which is sought after by others. But imagine the potential mess when time and gravity get through with that extra muscle and flesh. Kind of a, “bigger they are the bigger they fall,” scenario. If you don’t specifically target-exercise the gluteus maximus and surrounding muscles, chances are 90 percent that you will end up with a droopy, flattened, jello-shaking or cellulite-ridden exterior. But if you exercise the area regularly, faithfully, 3-4 times a week, there is no reason why you can’t have the same butt at 60 and beyond, as you had at 25. It might even look better after a regular course of these exercises.

THE LOWER BACK

You can’t do much in life without the support of your lower back. Back pain is complained about across the age spectrum, by the young, the old, and the in-between. It seems that no one is immune to the problem. When you think about it you realize that the lower back doesn’t get a lot of exercise on a daily basis. It is crunched into a sitting or standing position for most of the day. Suddenly you make a demand on it, like support to lift a window air conditioner. Then the spasms and pain begin, because the muscles were too weak to respond properly.

Lower back pain can be triggered by many things, including overuse, injury, vertebrae problems, fractures, osteoarthritis, and spinal conditions. A large percentage of these conditions can be helped or eliminated simply by strengthening the lower back through regular exercise, because most lower
back pain stems from weak musculature being over taxed. The following exercises will not only tone and tighten your rear, they will strengthen you lower back muscles.

THE EXERCISES

For all exercises, it’s better to start with a lower number of repetitions per leg, say 12, and work up to the recommended set of 25 for each exercise. When you reach 25 repetitions per leg, which is one set, you can extend yourself by adding another set of 25 repetitions. Work out on a carpet or other floor padding that cushions and protects your elbows, hands, back, and knees. Don’t work out on a bare floor of any kind unless you have no other choice.

1.         STAIR KICK

A.         Start on the floor, doggy style, supporting yourself with your bent knees and your hands. With your weight on the right knee, lift the left leg off the floor. With the left knee still bent, bring the leg forward under your chest, and then swing it back until your leg is straight out behind you with your toes pointed.

B.         Continue to bring the leg forward as far as you can under your chest, and then swing it back until it’s straight out behind you. You’ll get into a kind of rhythm of swinging it forward and back. Be gentle in your movements. Don’t exaggerate, don’t force. Don’t raise your leg higher than your hips, when you do the back swing. After your repetitions, switch legs and repeat.

NOTES

► This is the most important butt exercise. If you do none of the others, at
least make sure you do this one regularly.

► This works well because it duplicates the movements of climbing and descending stairs. If you live in a house with a staircase, you can enhance your workout by going up and down them 12-25 times each day, all at once as a set exercise, in addition to your regular daily use of the stairs.

► The best weapon against the crimes of time on your behind is the bicycle,
stationary or real life. For stationary, use the upright where you sit straight
and slightly forward, with no back support. At the gym I notice older members queuing up to use the sit down bicycle with back support, while there are upright machines available. They mistakenly perceive that the bicycles with back support are easier to use. Not true. The back support bike has you moving your legs in a lateral motion, across gravity. So even with inertia working your way, you don’t get the full benefits of gravity helping you. The upright bike has you moving your legs vertically, so that when inertia is added, the whole process is easier. It’s just physics. I’ve tried both, and though it’s counterintuitive, the upright bike gives a more butt-effective workout with less effort.

2.         HALF HYDRANT

A.         Start on the floor, doggy style, supporting yourself with your bent knees and your hands. With your weight on the right knee, and keeping your left leg bent, lift the left leg off the floor and move it out and away from your body, to the side—but not too far out, about 45 degrees—and then swing it back in. After your repetitions, switch legs and repeat.

NOTES

► Along with the Full Hydrant below, this exercise can make you appear 5-7 pounds thinner after about a week of regular sets of repetitions, even without actual weight loss. It does this by altering and narrowing the curvature of the hips. It gives a more athletic, leaner look to the body. If you like an hourglass,
round-hip figure, you may want to avoid this exercise. But if you need to look
thinner fast, this exercise can get you into a smaller dress size without drastic dieting. With drastic dieting you could probably drop two sizes.

3.         FULL HYDRANT

A.         Start on the floor, doggy style, supporting yourself with your bent knees and your hands. With your weight on the right knee, lift the left leg off the floor and move it out and away from your body, stretching it out until the leg is straight to the side with toes pointed. Touch the floor or the air near the floor with your toes, before returning to the starting position.

B.         After your repetitions, switch legs and repeat. Be gentle when sretching your leg to its fullest extent. Try hard to make the full extension without forcing it.

NOTES

► Along with the Half Hydrant above, this exercise can make you appear 5-7 pounds thinner after about a week of regular sets of repetitions, even without actual weight loss. It does this by altering and narrowing the curvature of the hips. It gives a more athletic, leaner look to the body. If you like an hourglass,
round-hip figure, you may want to avoid this exercise. But if you need to look
thinner fast, this exercise can get you into a smaller dress size without drastic dieting.

4.         BUMPER

A.         Start on the floor, doggy style, supporting yourself with your bent knees and your hands. Lean forward until your weight is on your forearms, with your hands pointing forward, and your butt sticking up. Keep your head down and look at the floor.

B.         With your weight on the right knee, raise your bent left leg off the floor, moving it upward until the front of your upper leg is parallel to the floor, and the bottom of your foot is facing the ceiling. Make sure your lower leg is kept vertical. If you can see yourself in a mirror, your leg should be in an L shape.

C.         Drop your knee slightly below the level of your butt. Then, bump your foot up toward the ceiling, purposefully using your butt and the back of your leg to lift. Drop it back down, slightly below parallel and repeat. Don’t lift your leg above the level of your butt, and make sure the bottom of your foot is always facing the ceiling throughout. After your repetitions, switch legs and repeat.

5.         BUMPER STRETCH

A.         Start on the floor, doggy style, supporting yourself with your bent knees and your hands. Lean forward until your weight is on your forearms, with your hands pointing forward, and your butt sticking up. Keep your head down and look at the floor.

B.         With your weight on the right knee, raise your bent left leg off the floor until your upper leg is parallel to the floor, and your toes are facing the ceiling. If you can see yourself in a mirror, your leg should be in an L shape.

C.         Extend your leg fully until it is straight out behind you, with your toes pointed, then return it to the L position with your toes facing the ceiling. After your repetitions, switch legs and repeat.

6.         BOUNCE

A.         Start on the floor, doggy style, supporting yourself with your bent knees and your hands. Lean forward until your weight is on your forearms, with your hands pointing forward, and your butt sticking up. Keep your head down and look at the floor.

B.         With your weight on the right knee, lift your left leg and stretch it all the way out straight behind you. With toes pointed, bounce the leg up and down a short distance, making sure not to lift it higher than your butt. After your repetitions, switch legs and repeat.

7.         TRIANGLE

A.         Start on the floor, doggy style, supporting yourself with your bent knees and your hands. Stretch your left leg out straight to the side with the inner part of the foot flat on the floor.

B.         Lean on your right forearm. Use your left arm to brace yourself on the floor. Lift the left leg off the floor, keeping the inner side of the foot parallel to the floor. Bob the leg up and down above the floor, without touching it. After your repetitions, switch legs and repeat.

8.         SIDE L KICK

The L exercises are difficult to do. If you body won’t cooperate, you will do fine with just the other exercises.

A.         Start on the floor, doggy style, supporting yourself with your bent knees and your hands. Lift your left leg, which is still bent at the knee, all the way out and up, until the inside of the leg is parallel to and facing the floor, forming a 90 degree angle with the floor.

B.         Holding your inner leg parallel to and facing the floor, kick your leg out, away from your body, gently, until it is fully extended to the side. Then return the leg to the bent position. Make sure the inner leg is always facing the floor. After your repetitions, switch legs and repeat.

9.         BACK L PUSH

The L exercises are difficult to do. If you body won’t cooperate, you will do fine with the just other exercises.

A.         Start on the floor, doggy style, supporting yourself with your bent knees and your hands. Lift your left leg, which is still bent at the knee, all the way out and up, until the inside of the leg is parallel to and facing the floor, forming a 90 degree angle with the floor.

B.         Holding your inner leg parallel to and facing the floor, push your leg back, gently, until it is  fully extended behind you. Then return the leg to the bent position and repeat. Make sure the inner leg is always facing the floor. After your repetitions, switch legs and repeat.

10.       WAIST BEND

A.         Stand with feet should length apart, holding a 5 pound weight with both hands centered in front of you.

B.         While bending at the waist, slowly lower the weight to the floor. While still bent over lift the weight to your chest, and return it to the floor.

C.         Slowly straighten up, bringing the weight with you, until you are in the starting position with the weight centered in your hands in front of you. Repeat.

NOTES

► You should start with 6 repetitions of the Waist Bend. If you want to challenge yourself, you can work your way up to 12 repetitions, adding more sets of 12, with one minute rest or stretch periods between sets.

► If you have really bad lower back pain start with a lighter weight, something like 2 pounds. If you’re really bad off, you can use no weight in the beginning. Just try to bend over, touch the floor and raise both hands to your chest, then drop them back down to the floor and straighten up, letting your arms come to rest at your sides. You can also increase to a 10 or 15 pound weight.

ADULT ONSET, “NON-INSULIN DEPENDENT DIABETES,” IS CAUSED BY PERSONAL CHOICES, MEANING YOU CAN CHOOSE NOT TO HAVE IT

CATEGORIES: 1: Simple Malnutrition, 8: Exercise & Fitness, 10: Food & Diet

RECOMMENDED: Monavie Active, Increased Exercise, and Improved Diet

Definition: Insulin: It is a hormone produced by the pancreas, in order to digest and convert carbohydrates and starches into glucose (sugar) for energy use. Your blood sugar levels rise naturally while you digest a meal. When your body detects these increased levels of blood sugar, it is supposed to release insulin, which then moves the glucose out of the bloodstream and into the muscles and fat cells for storage. The sugar remains stored in the cell, until you need it for energy, say, to run a marathon, or pick up your clothes at the cleaners.

Type 1 diabetes was formerly known as juvenile diabetes, because it’s usually diagnosed in children and young adults. It stems from an impairment in the immune system. Only about 5 to 10 percent of reported cases are in this category, a comparatively small number. But a whopping 90 to 95 percent of people diagnosed with diabetes are Type 2, adult onset. Increasing the cringe factor is the news that of those numbers, most have this disease only because of unhealthy lifestyle choices. Meaning, Type 2 could be made obsolete in no time, if people made different and healthier choices.

Ordinarily, you end up with Type 2 after a lifetime of doing whatever you wanted to your body. You had no fear; you were carefree. You probably ate and drank what you liked without regard to nutrition or weight. Maybe spent too much time at the computer or big screen sitting on your butt. Likewise had no idea what the inside of a gym or health club looked like, or that the outdoors was good for more than passing through on your way from your house to your car.

Or maybe you had greater nutritional needs than average. But no one in your family understood, causing them to go unmet even as an adult. Maybe no one ever taught you how to eat in a balanced fashion, or that your body needs movement by way of exercise and activity in order to stay healthy and thrive. Whatever the cause, Type 2 diabetes is the result of chronic neglect that has caught up with you.

DIABETES OVERVIEW

Type 1 occurs when the immune system, embodied in the white blood cells, wrongly attacks the body’s own insulin producing cells, decimating their numbers and preventing them from making insulin. Think of it as friendly fire, as when troops mistake their own soldiers as the enemy and attack them. The result is high blood glucose (sugar) levels, which are treated with diet, blood monitoring, and insulin shots meant to replace the insulin from cells destroyed by the immune system.

Type 2 is something you do to yourself. It’s self inflicted. It’s not a gun to the head, but it’s a slower form of suicide that robs you of promised years. It’s caused by a metabolic malfunction arising from an unhealthy diet and no exercise, whereby the insulin cells that are produced by the pancreas are inferior, and therefore can’t remove enough glucose from the blood to keep you healthy. This is called “insulin resistance.” The result is high blood sugar levels, which are treated by diet changes and increased activity.

Nutrition is responsible for all functions inside your body, including making strong insulin cells and other replacement parts. If you have a Type 2 diagnosis, it means you have not given your body enough nutrition, so that now it can’t do things like it used to, like construct strong insulin cells.

Types 1 and 2 both result in elevated blood sugar levels and if not controlled can lead to heart attack, stroke, toe and limb amputation, kidney failure, and loss of eyesight, among other problems that will lead up to these events. But the edges between Type 1 and Type 2 start to blur when you examine them closely, especially in children. Type 2 used to be associated with middle age and the elderly. But how do we explain that children as young as 8 are presenting with, and dying from, Type 2 now? Or that countries normally associated with good eating habits, like Japan, showed Type 2 diabetes cases almost double in junior high school students, making it more prevalent than Type 1?

Dr. Francine Kaufman knows. She is the Director of the Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism at Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles, and Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Southern California Medical School. She reports that, “poor eating habits and lack of exercise—once the prerogative of older people in rich countries, but now almost a global phenomenon—are largely to blame for the rise of Type 2 Diabetes.”

So there you have it folks, your lousy diets are killing not just you adults, but now your children as well. Type 2 is a disease that arises due to a sedentary lifestyle, and a diet that, because it provides too much fat and not enough nutrition, leads to weight gain and obesity, which further exacerbates the Type 2 disorder. People who are overweight are more likely to have Type 2, because fat actually interferes with the body’s ability to use insulin.

A high fat diet stores too much fat inside your cells. It prevents your body from responding to the insulin it does manage to produce, because the fat is hogging all the space in the cell. Like a room, there is only so much space inside a cell. If it’s filled up with fat there is simply less space inside it to store glucose, no matter how hard your insulin works. It’s like having a private storage unit that’s filled up all the way to the door. There’s no room for that desk you want to store.

THE CORE ISSUE IN BOTH TYPES IS INSULIN

Without enough insulin in your bloodstream at all times, glucose builds up and remains there, instead of being moved into storage in your cells. This process of sugar being transported to, and stored in your cells, is what keeps you moving. When you run a race, or go to the cleaners, it’s the glucose energy stored in your muscle cells by insulin that keeps you moving. The body is unable to use glucose as a food for energy as long as the glucose is trapped inside the bloodstream. Glucose must be inside a cell in order for that cell, and therefore your body, to tap it for energy use. Insulin is the transportation system for glucose. It takes sugar out of the blood and into the cell.

Think of insulin as high speed rail taking workers from the outskirts into the center of town. If the rail system is working at peak effectiveness it will efficiently transport them. But let’s say the system gets bogged down and moves 25 percent less efficiently. What about 50 or 75 percent? What if the rails shut down and no trains move? In those cases, fewer and fewer workers would get to their jobs, until finally no one would. Likewise, if your insulin becomes less and less effective at taking sugar to work inside your cell, you will get a Type 2 diagnosis.

OBESITY AND TYPE 2 DIABETES

If too much glucose remains in your blood, you will feel unsatisfied no matter what or how much you eat. And you will gain weight despite your best efforts not to. Your body can’t burn off the sugar until it gets moved into the cells. When your cells don’t respond properly to the insulin, the pancreas tries to solve the problem by producing more and more insulin. These large amounts of insulin constrict your arteries and increase your chances of having a heart attack or stroke due to decreased blood flow. They stimulate your brain to make you hungry, even though you’ve taken in more than enough calories to fill your needs—making it almost impossible not to overeat. All because they cause fat, instead of glucose, to be stored in your cells.

If you’re overweight, the failure to store glucose in your fat-laden cells where it belongs is what makes you so tired all the time. The sugar your cells need for energy is trapped inside the bloodstream, of no use whatsoever because your cells can’t access it. That’s also why the first thing people say when they change their diets for the better is, “I have so much more energy now.” Of course. The healthier diet increases the efficiency of the insulin you’re producing. More glucose food energy gets stored in the cells because the fat has moved out to make room for it. Like maybe you removed something from that storage unit in order to make room for the desk. Once glucose is inside the cell, energy is then accessible to you when you need it to cross the finish line, or pick up the clothes.

MANITO S.

Manito was a 23 year old dancer and Cuban hunk when he immigrated to Miami in 1962. The trip was far from easy. He spent two days in a small boat with five other people; three men and two women. The boat started to leak and broke apart in a rogue wave. Two men and a woman were swept away and drowned. Manny, one woman, and the last man took turns lying on top of a piece of the wreckage, while the others held on to the sides. The curvature of the wood kept a pocket of air under it and made it more floatable. They stayed alive like that for two more days until they were picked up by a passing American fishing boat. They’d had no food or water for four days.

Manny loved the U.S. He got a job dancing in a nightclub and three years later he owned the place. Two years after that he added a small restaurant and populated the menu with his favorite dishes: achiote marinated chicken, veal scallops with bacon, roast suckling pig, deviled crab rolls, moros y christianos, criollo chicken and rice gumbo.

Manny ate at his own restaurant every night, even after he met and married Maria. She joined him in managing the business, handling the front end while he ran the kitchen and planned menus. It was a match made in heaven because Maria loved food as much as Manny. They grew successful together, and they grew fat together. All the more to love, they often told each other.

That is where Manny and Maria’s background tale ends for me. I don’t know what happened between that happy chronicle and the phone call I received from their daughter, Katrina, so many years later. I was running an experiment on the effects of Monavie Active on metabolism and Type 2 diabetes. Katrina contacted me online and then we spoke by phone. She told me her parents had separated, but both had been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes a decade ago. The trial samples were free so I offered to enroll both Manny and Maria. Katrina said they didn’t want their mother in the trial, just their father.

That begged a “why not?” from me, and her answer gave me pause. Katrina said that if Monavie Active helped their dad’s glucose numbers, she and her brother, Marc, would order it for their mother on a long term basis. But they wouldn’t pay to have their father take it, even if it would save his life. Okay. But why not start both of them on it now instead of waiting to see what happens with your dad, I asked. She said they didn’t want me experimenting on their mother, but didn’t care what happened to him. “She could get hurt,” she said. I didn’t pursue it. I assumed Manny had earned his children’s wrath.

Manny and I started communicating by phone. I figured that if Monavie worked for him he would find some other way of paying for it. He was 73, maybe he had a pension. I asked him what was the biggest negative impact that Type 2 had had on his life. He didn’t mention the two missing toes, or the inability to walk more than a few feet at a time, the chronic infections, tingling extremities, debilitating fatigue, or loss of eyesight. He said it was not being able to walk his dog Georgi along the beach.

In the end there was good news and bad. The good news was that Monavie Active worked great for Manny. Normal blood glucose should fall between 70 and 120. Manny’s had been 565 at the start. After two weeks taking Monavie Active twice daily, Manny’s glucose dropped to 95, and he returned to walking Georgi. His physician was so impressed that he called me to get more information on just what Manito had been taking.

Katrina told me that the treatment also worked for Maria, who saw her numbers return to normal. But I’m sure you’ve already guessed the bad news. The kids ordered Monavie for Maria but not Manny. He asked me to talk to them because he didn’t want to go back to being sick. I told him I didn’t think it would do any good. A couple of weeks after he ran out of the sample, his blood glucose was sky high again.

WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP YOURSELF

You can easily turn things around by changing certain habits. You’ve heard it all before and it’s true. It’s all about choices. You don’t have to start living like a monk, but even a few changes will make a big difference in your health: Choose multi grain breads, cereals, and pastas instead of refined white. Substitute brown rice for white rice on occasion. Always eat something raw/fresh along with a cooked meal. Go completely vegetarian two days each week. When you eat meat, choose lean cuts. Try to avoid buying food in cans; make it a last resort choice. Keep frozen foods at a minimum; choose fresh as often as possible. Read the labels of foods you buy and avoid ones with too many additives. Don’t overeat; portion control is very important. Think about what you are putting in your mouth. Don’t assume because something is served to you that it’s really fit for your consumption.

In addition to the above, you have to get moving, literally. If you can’t afford a health club or gym membership, or don’t want others to see you exercising right away, then just start walking. Even if you only get to the end of your block on your first try, it’s a start. Try to go a little farther each time you walk, until you can do something substantial like two miles. And expect pain; some of your muscles have not been stressed in a long time. Pain is no reason to stop, unless it’s in your chest. Once you’ve built up your strength a little, try something harder, like swimming, or jogging, or free weights. Whatever appeals to you and gets your heart beating faster.

There is also a supplement that will make your life back to good health much easier. For most people with Type 2, Monavie Active can balance your metabolism and lower your glucose numbers in two to three weeks. It’s a juice combination with acai berry as the primary ingredient.

Monavie Active is dense and delicious, and appears to have silt and sediment in it. Make sure you shake it well, but do not discard anything that comes out of the bottle. Consume everything, tiny chunks of puree, silt, etc. Take it first thing in the morning when you wake up, before you eat anything. Take your second dose about 20 minutes before you eat dinner. Do not miss a dose. If you forget, take it as soon as you remember.

NOTES

► If you are taking a prescription for Type 2 diabetes, you have to be watchful as you take Monavie Active. Be aware that while it is a simple combination of juices, it is powerful and effective. The chances are 95 percent that it will remove the need for your medicine, because it will bring your glucose under control and balance your metabolism.

 ► Monavie Active costs about $150 a month to take as prescribed here. If you cannot afford it you will have to pay strict attention to your dietary restrictions to bring and keep your glucose numbers within normal range.
