Holistic Physical Development






I always liked watching ol' Jonny Quest.  Still do.  Jonny was the star of the show.  Then there was his father Dr. Benton Quest, his friend Hadji, their bodyguard Race Bannon, and Jonny's dog Bandit.  Race's friend Jade made an appearance every now and then and in later years their daughter Jessie (who was Jonny's age) started to show up.

When I was a kid I wanted to be like Dr. Quest.  He was always researching something on the forefront of science whether it was space exploration, archaeology, name it and Dr. Quest was the authority on it.  When he wasn't busy researching he was running from pygmies, tangling with gaint, genetically altered insects, or standing up to the evil Dr. Zin.  Man, what a life...

But somewhere along the way I decided I wanted to be a baseball player.  So I went to Saint Catharine College to play for the 
Patriots.  About 3 months into my first semester I left school to be treated for a very aggressive form of Leukemia that also happened to be very rare in people my age.  Though I received a very effective chemotherapy protocol at one of the best hematology clinics in the world and made major dietary and lifestyle changes in an effort to address the cause of the problem I never got to the ultimate cause and so a few years later, after sleep disturbances, mood disturbances, excessive sweating during the day, and excessive urinating at night (these all came on very slowly and so I didn't take them as seriously as I should have) I had a recurrence of my symptoms.  

I would eventually lose nearly 90 lbs. of bodyweight (198 to 116) and nearly lose my arm before having 16 surgeries to save and repair itti , in addition to nearly dying  on 7 dufferent occasions..  As I write this I am still recovering and am still 50 lbs. underweight, but I'll be back on top of my game before too long.

As I look back I can see that there have many things I have found interesting.  But as I became more and more proficient in each area I started to realize that diet, nervous system function, overall health, lifestyle, and many other factors played in to being able to get the most out of what I was doing.  So I began putting more resources into studying these areas.  Now I find myself spending much of my time writing, working with others on getting the most out of their body, and speaking about what I've been fortunate enough to learn.

Eventually I would like to start a learning center based on the Theory of Multiple Intelligences as described 
here (I also think emotional, existential, and social intelligences, as well as other types of intelligences are important though they are not generally included in the ToMI) with the best psychologists, health care professionals, strength and conditioning coaches, nutritionists, scientists, etc. in the world as a part of it. 

Really though I just do what I like.  I am often asked why I do certain things and my response is always the same: 'Because I like to'.  I laugh a lot.  Why?  Because when you start doing what you love with the complete assurance that everything else will fall into place then the only thing left to do is laugh.  Laugh.  Smile.  Hug.  Whatever.  Just have fun.

'Kindness is more important than wisdom and the understanding of that is the beginning of wisdom.'




Here's a pyramid showing a little about how I live my life.


Seriously, who wouldn't include this one.  Some of my favorite things to do are sit on the beach and eat coconuts, raise cattle, play sports, cut firewood, cook, hang out with people, swim/be in the water, and be in the middle of nowhere away from everyone and everything.  I also like money, golf, chess, being in the sun, and playing guitar and singing.  Probably some other stuff, too.


Pure, clean water.  Sunshine without sunscreen or sunglasses.  Art.  Essential Oils.  Crystal Salts/Sole.  Flowers.  Dental and Skin Care.  Helping Others.  Spinal Care.  Laser and Electromedicine.  Vibrational Medicine.  Massage.  Negative Ions.


Keeping my space clean.  Providing good service to customers.  Giving myself a break and rebuilding my body/letting it heal.  Keeping my money straightened out.  Always being myself.  You get the idea.


I've always liked learning.  Physical Science, Religion, Life Science, The Human Body, History, Technology, Psychology, Language, Geometry, and Metaphysics are some of the things I find interesting.


I like a lot of different foods.  My favorites are citrus fruits, papayas,  grapes, cherries, melons, apples, peppers, cucumbers, bananas, kiwi, mangoes, olives, tomatoes, berries, peaches, figs, dates, raisins, prunes, coconuts, avocados, eggplant, pineapple, leafy green vegetables, cashews, macadamia nuts, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, walnuts, almonds, apricot kernels, hemp seeds, flax seeds, chia seeds, olive oil, hemp oil, walnut oil, avocado oil, flax oil mixed with unpasteurized cultured cottage cheese or upasteurized yogurt (creates an awesome fat and water solube omega 3 fatty acid), honey, raw eggs, raw dairy, sandwiches, pizza, molasses, maple syrup, tea, fresh herbs and spices, cacao, some legumes every now and then, caramel covered apples and pumpkin rolls from Shreve's pumpkin patch, homemade ice cream, and lion.  I also eat food that other people cook for me.


I've pretty well cut out anything that kills brain cells so this list is made up of staying up all night, eating too much, etc.
