Fired Football Coach Files $25 Million Lawsuit.

So many were forced out of their jobs for not getting the jab. Nick Rolovich, former Washington State football coach, was among those and he is punching back!

From NOT THE BEE

Nearly a year after the enforcement of Washington’s insane vaccine mandate resulted in the school forcing him out, Rolovich is suing the school for wrongful termination

This is not going to end well for many businesses, schools, hospitals, you name it. And it shouldn’t end well! Especially since the new CDC guidelines for exposure and positive tests for covid basically say take caution but no quarantine whether or not you are vaccinated.

Health and wellness is at the forefront at EATTHEDAMNSALAD however what we saw in the name of health in wellness the past 2 years was absurd. We had the “vaccine” available if you wanted it but making it mandatory crossed the line and this is probably the beginning.

The state of Washington and its thoroughly unstable governor Jay Inslee has gone the furthest of any state in forcing people to get the Fauci ouchie to keep their job.

They wouldn’t even respect a claim of religious exemption which they have no right to question.

Thankfully, someone is fighting back and attempting to get retribution for these insane policies.

IMHO, if they won’t mandate healthy eating and basic exercise, don’t mandate an experimental shot!

Until next time…#eatthedamnsalad

Cold Showers Are Causing Heart Attacks In Young Adults??

I don’t know if you have heard but many healthy young adults are developing heart issues, and some are suffering heart attacks from this. It is so sad to hear these stories and, unfortunately, no one can seem to figure all this out.

If you did a google search a month ago for the benefits of cold showers, you would find many links to videos and studies that show how good they can be for you. Heck, at Eatthedamnsalad, we have written about it. I use a cold shower on a daily basis for many of the benefits. Cold showers and ice baths have been used by athletes for a LONG time to recover from hard workouts. There are many studies that show cold water will help your immune system, which is something we all could use. Now, I’m sure the caveat is that if you have heart issues, don’t jump into an ice bath or have the water at the coldest level. Just as if you have heart issues, don’t go out and run a marathon, start with a half-mile walk.

The reason I bring this up is if you google “cold shower” today, you are going to find that cold showers could be the cause of the rise in heart attacks in the youth. Interesting, as I’m sure our media will soon be jumping all over this and investigating cold showers as the main cause of all the heart problems. We may even see the leading health experts interviewed and warning us not to partake in this deadly habit! I’ll make the popcorn as I know this will be interesting.

For me, I will continue this daily habit as I know the benefits are incredible for my health.

Let’s Talk About Our Immune System And Natural Immunity Again!

Follow the science!

That has been the mantra during this pandemic. Unfortunately, the only “science” to follow, according to the state run media, is that what the government deems legit. If there is one thing we should learn from history is the government is not there for our best interest.

This isn’t a condemnation on those who took/take the shot or those who wear masks on a daily basis. I understand where you are coming from as for 2 years you have been scared into thinking this is the only way to stay safe. What I say is do those things for your safety, not for anyone else’s. You getting the shot or wearing the mask is NOT protecting me, no matter what the state media/government says. We are getting so much more valid information from science, and that makes sense! We knew from the beginning there were many unknowns so why can’t we be open to new evidence on the masks and shots?

I understand people got sick, some very severe, most with minor symptoms. I understand people died from all this, and that is sad. What is also sad is new, relevant science is not only not followed, but treated as dangerous because it doesn’t go along with a narrative. That is not following the science. And I understand our immune system is VERY powerful and we have so many things we can do on a daily basis to keep it strong. A new study below shows just how powerful that immune system it. That is why I take Juice Plus every day and #eatthedamnsalad as often as possible. The science is NOT settled!

Check out the study from the NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE here!

“Climate Change” Affects Childhood Obesity, “Experts” Say!

From The New York Post

  • “CBS Mornings” pushed a recent study connecting climate change and hotter temperatures with childhood obesity rates.
  • Climate change, specifically warmer temperatures is making our children more inactive and more obese.
  • The study found that children were 30% less “aerobically fit” than their parents and claimed hotter temperatures were preventing kids from exercising outside.

Obviously, they were hammered on making climate change a reason that kids are inactive and gaining weight. Many on twitter mocked that thinking.

In the CBS segment they acknowledge that technology contributes greatly to childhood obesity and “climate change” and “covid” are factors that made it all worse.

I’ll take this all a step further and say neither the climate nor covid are the reason we have an obesity issue with kids. This has been on-going for many years prior to either and we don’t seem to want to address it. Covid and climate are the convenient excuses for everyone, not just kids.

During covid, I spoke with many adults who claimed that they gained all this weight during the shutdown, especially since they couldn’t get to the gym. It was a convenient excuse. I have been dealing with the same “heat” outside as every kid has during the past years. My gym shut down during covid as well. I made the decision to keep active by getting outside, EVEN IN THE HEAT AND COLD! I did bodyweight exercises in my condo and spent a few dollars on home equipment. Grocery shopping was very specific and I didn’t go to fast-food on a regular basis. Although as I have said before, it was interesting parks and gyms were shut down but you could get a greasy burger…all in the name of health.

We can make excuses or make changes. Climate and covid are not the problem with childhood obesity. Our choices will make a bigger impact on health and health expense than anything the government will do!

Take In The Benefits Of Nature!

Get outside and you can almost guarantee your mental wellbeing will improve. Check out 7 health benefits of getting back to nature.

  1. Better breathing. Indoor concentrations of pollutants are often higher than outdoor.
  2. Improve sleep. Sun light affects your circadian rhythm more than electric light.
  3. Reduce depression symptoms. Sunlight can lessen depression symptoms.
  4. Mental restoration. We need a break from all the stimulation from computer screens and phones.
  5. Boost Immune functions. Fresh air circulation can dilute the presences of viruses in the air.
  6. Protection from short-sightedness. Research shows those who spend more time outside have less chance of developing myopia.
  7. Improve emotional well-being.

Getting outside is great for physical activity and can also be amazing for our mental health!

Add PRUNELLA VULGARIS To Your Teas!

Have you heard of Prunella Vulgaris?

  • It is also known as self-heal or heal-all and is in the same family as mint.

Ancient claims are that Prunella Vulgaris can protect against diabetes and cancer. The best way to consume this is in the form of tea. When taken internally, it can help fight infection and viruses but can also be used externally for wounds.

Have You Heard Of The ASIAN DIET?

Not to add more confusion to the “diet” talk, the Asian Diet is coming to attention. While I don’t think there is any one perfect diet, when you look at the diets that are most effective they typically have common points.

From Lauren Bedosky of Everyday Health

  • As there are many countries in Asia, and the cuisines vary greatly from one region to another, there isn’t a single “Asian diet,” says Zhaoping Li, MD, PhD, a professor of clinical medicine and the chief of the division of clinical nutrition at the University of California in Los Angeles. That said, the diets of people living in these regions have several things in common. 

As with many diets, The Asian diet has a baseline of food that is encouraged every day.

  • At the base of the Asian diet food pyramid are foods you’re encouraged to eat every day: leafy greens, legumes, vegetables, fruits, soy foods, whole grains, herbs, and spices. Moving up the pyramid, you have fish or shellfish twice a week; moderate portions of eggs, poultry, dairy, and healthy cooking oils; and “sometimes” foods like red meats and sweets. Plain water and unsweetened tea are encouraged, whereas sugary juices and soda are discouraged. 

Unsweetended tea is a staple in the diet and may be a big reason it has so many healthy benefits. So many tea varieties are packed with antioxidants. Some the aspects are:

  • May help prevent and control Type-2 diabetes.
  • May lower heart disease risk.
  • May promote gut health.

While the Asian diet is more of a healthy lifestyle than a fad designed to promote weight loss, there is some evidence that the diet is associated with lower body weight.

A sample menu for a day on the Asian Diets would consist of:

Breakfast Vegetable omelet

Snack 1 piece of local, seasonal fruit

Lunch Soba noodles in sesame oil with scallions and cabbage

Snack Small handful of almonds

Dinner Tofu and vegetable stir-fry over brown rice

Sometimes the best thing to do is take parts of a variety of diets, as long as the diet is rich in fruits and vegetables.

Are You Showering Properly?

It isn’t rocket science but, apparently, there is a right way to shower.

According to Emily Slawek of Yahoo news, while it isn’t life-threatening, how you shower can have a positive, or negative, effect on your skin and gives a few tips.

  • Don’t shower too often. If you’re not active, you can cut back to a few times a week. Just don’t cut back so much that you smell, or risk letting skin infections take hold.
  • Keep it short. According to Dr. Jessica Krant, a board-certified dermatologist, Water exposure can lead to dry skin and hair. A longer shower also “gives the water a chance to allow any cleansers to be more damaging.
  • Stay cool. Hot water strips away natural oils and damages the skin faster, so stick to a lukewarm — or cooler — shower.
  • Don’t wash your hair too much. Hair is made of dead skin cells — it just doesn’t need as much washing as the rest of our skin.
  • But don’t wash your hair too little either. Washing hair less often has become such a trend that dermatologists say some people are overdoing it, causing a scalp buildup of dandruff.
  • Focus on the dirtiest areas.
  • Cleanse with care. Some experts say traditional soap can strip the oil from your skin. Dr. Doris Day, a board-certified dermatologist in New York, suggests products labeled as “cleanser,” such as a moisturizing body wash.
  • Start at the top.
  • If you’re shaving, do it last.
  • Pat yourself dry.
  • Moisturize.

Our hair and skin are the first things people see and can give us a signal about other health issues, so take care of them!

Mental Health Benefits Of Exercise!

Exercise offers many physical benefits, which is probably the main reason most will start a program. However, the mental benefits can be just as great and, most of the time, we notice those mental benefits before reaching our physical goals.

From HELP GUIDE, there are many areas of mental well-being we can use exercise on before, and/or during, using medication.

EXERCISE AND DEPRESSION

Studies show that exercise can treat mild to moderate depression as effectively as antidepressant medication—but without the side-effects, of course. As one example, a recent study done by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health found that running for 15 minutes a day or walking for an hour reduces the risk of major depression by 26%.

EXERCISE AND ANXIETY

Exercise is a natural and effective anti-anxiety treatment. It relieves tension and stress, boosts physical and mental energy, and enhances well-being through the release of endorphins. Anything that gets you moving can help, but you’ll get a bigger benefit if you pay attention instead of zoning out.

EXERCISE AND STRESS

Exercising is an effective way to break this cycle (stress). As well as releasing endorphins in the brain, physical activity helps to relax the muscles and relieve tension in the body. Since the body and mind are so closely linked, when your body feels better so, too, will your mind.

EXERCISE AND ADHD

Physical activity immediately boosts the brain’s dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin levels—all of which affect focus and attention. In this way, exercise works in much the same way as ADHD medications such as Ritalin and Adderall

EXERCISE AND PTSD AND TRAUMA

Evidence suggests that by really focusing on your body and how it feels as you exercise, you can actually help your nervous system become “unstuck” and begin to move out of the immobilization stress response that characterizes PTSD or trauma.

There are a number of additional benefits according to Help Guide.

  • Sharper memory and thinking
  • Higher self-esteem
  • Better Sleep
  • More energy
  • Stronger resilience

They go on to say a little bit of exercise is better than not and you don’t have to beat yourself up to reap the benefits.

Even with all the benefits, so many have obstacles to fitting it into a busy schedule.

  • Exhausted? Studies show that regular exercise can dramatically reduce fatigue and increase your energy levels
  • Overwhelmed?  If you begin thinking of physical activity as a priority (a necessity for your mental well-being), you’ll soon find ways to fit small amounts of exercise into even the busiest schedule.
  • Feeling hopeless? Start slow with easy, low-impact activities a few minutes each day, such as walking or dancing.
  • Have a lot of pain? Divide your exercise into shorter, more frequent chunks of time if that helps, or try exercising in water to reduce joint or muscle discomfort.

Ultimately, there is almost no reason not to do some sort of physical activity, especially when you look at all the ways it can help! You can also enlist the help of a trainer or Health Coach to give you direction.

There Is Help During And After A Pregnancy!

You probably know there is an ongoing battle in the overturning of Roe VS Wade. Actually, that battle has been going on for 50 years. This isn’t to spark an argument, but rather to bring to light the VAST services that are available to men and women who have an unplanned pregnancy.

To be transparent, I am a Catholic, white male who is Pro-Life. I know the white male part makes me the most evil person on earth right now. And when you throw in Catholic and Pro-Life, well, that is just an explosion. Although Catholic and Pro-Life should go hand in hand, that is a battle going on in the church. That being said, I will never apologize for standing up for the lives of the unborn.

Those who are for abortion make the argument that no one cares about the mom or baby after the birth. As a proud catholic, one thing I feel the Church has done a horrible job with is sharing the incredible services available to those who are expecting a baby, and single moms who are struggling. The amazing part is these services are available to anyone in need, not just Catholics. I have a link to all of these, such as Birthright and Our Ladies Inn, at the end, but this needs to be shared with all!

Putting that aside, there is an important part of women’s health that is ignored. I understand that making the choice of aborting a pregnancy is probably the most difficult decision a woman and man can make. I know there are those who have made that decision who end up regretting it for the rest of their lives. Where can they go to get help? Does planned parenthood have a program? This seems to be dismissed. Fortunately, there are programs in the Catholic church that address that specific issue.

Project Rachel is that program available to ALL women!

  • Project Rachel, a women’s only program through our archdiocesan Abortion Healing Ministry, provides healing and hope to women wounded by abortion through the following: 
  • Referrals for confidential, professional counseling from compassionate and trained clinicians
  • Spiritual direction and healing prayer  
  • Monthly spiritual support group meetings (every fourth Thursday at 7 p.m.)
  • Retreat opportunities
  • Women’s Bible study 
  • Sacrament of Reconciliation

Project Rachel is for people of all faiths and backgrounds. Women are welcome to participate, regardless of how long it has been since the abortion experience. Confidentiality is key to Project Rachel and your privacy will be respected. 

Project Joseph is a program geared toward men and getting them help after an abortion.

  • Project Joseph is for people of all faiths and backgrounds. Men are welcome to participate, regardless of how long it has been since the abortion experience. Confidentiality is key to Project Joseph and your privacy will be respected. 
  • Referrals for confidential, professional counseling from compassionate and trained clinicians
  • Spiritual direction and healing prayer 
  • Monthly spiritual support group meetings
  • Retreat opportunities through Rachel’s Vineyard (for both men and women) 
  • Sacrament of Reconciliation 

Rachel’s Vineyard is a fairly new retreat that is available to help husbands and wives who are struggling to deal with having an abortion.

  • Rachel’s Vineyard is a safe place to renew, rebuild and redeem hearts broken by abortion. Weekend retreats offer you a supportive, confidential and non-judgmental environment where women and men can express, release and reconcile painful post-abortive emotions to begin the process of restoration, renewal and healing.

The mental well-being after an abortion is something that will only get worse. I feel that young women, especially in high school and college, are given the wrong message that it is not a big deal to have an abortion. In fact, it has to do with women’s health. This is such a bad message as it is a HUGE decision and all aspects should be addressed. One of those is what happens when a young girl has an abortion, as she thinks it is nothing, then comes to the realization that she ended a life. That can be devastating. Again, even if you are pro-abortion, knowing that you can share a service that can help those dealing with mental issues down the road should not be disputed.

Walking With Moms is a wonderful site to go to find many organizations that will help moms-to-be! If you know of more, please share!
