Dr. Oz: The National Childhood Obesity Crisis

Originally posted 4/30/2011

As a father and a physician, I am thrilled to see the Obama administration addressing one of the most pressing issues for the next generation – the fight against childhood obesity. Michelle Obama’s initiative has made big headlines, bringing light to this urgent national crisis.

The statistics are shocking. Childhood obesity has nearly tripled in prevalence in the last 30 years. The extensive list of complications facing children who suffer from obesity includes diabetes, abnormal cholesterol, high blood pressure, asthma and sleep disorders. Even more frightening is the fact that these conditions are likely to follow children into their adult lives. The fat cells that children deposit at young ages stay with them as they grow. This means that extraneous fat cells will be impossible to remove and will burden these children for the rest of their lives.

On my show we welcome a young girl who is heading down that dangerous road. Lillie is 4 years old and weighs 85 lbs. We sit down with her parents, Heather and Mike, and discuss the emotional issues that attribute to Lillie’s obesity. We lay out an action plan that focuses on making wellness a family affair. The example that Heather and Mike set as parents is essential to Lillie developing healthy eating habits.

Like so many, Heather, Mike and Lillie were struggling with these issues privately. However, there are some who battle weight and obesity under public scrutiny. We welcome pop singer and TV personality, Carnie Wilson. Carnie’s struggle with food began when she was only 4 years old. At such a young age, she was already dealing with sugar cravings. As her children grow, Carnie senses the urgency to take back her health.

The fight to end childhood obesity begins with adults. If you feel like your child may be obese talk to a pediatrician. They can map out an individualized weight assessment and if necessary, work with you to create a personal treatment plan. A healthy family is a blessing that comes with responsibility, as a nation, we need to step up.

A Final Note

For those of you who are not aware, I am a Mission Marketer with "Beyond Organic", making it an affiliate of "Drink Your Greens and Minerals". Beyond Organic is still in a Pre-Launch phase which ends November 1st. What is very unique about Beyond Organic is that all the GreenFed foods and beverages are rich in Probiotics. Also, they will be delivered to your door. Jordan Rubin is the Founder and CEO of this wonderful company. You can read more details about the company and Jordan in the article posted on DYGandM.

One reason for you to be interested is you now have the opportunity to become an "INSIDER" with the company for FREE at the link below. However, this offer also ends November 1st. Joining the company allows you the option of becoming a "Preferred Customer" (more details at 2nd link below). Also, as an Insider, you get to see all that is going on behind the scene; Full access to all information regarding the company.

So let me tell you why I find the company important.
A Probiotic rich diet is the ultimate diet along with a primarily Alkalarian Diet, in my opinion. Probiotics give your body the nutrients, vitamins, minerals, along with other key supplements that your body desperately needs daily to function, and stay healthy. Good health and wellness are the results of what is going on in your Gut. That is why doctors are very interested in your blood test. They can see what is happening in your body, and that leads back to what's going on in your Gut. The strength of your immune system, and the ability for your body to recover (heal) is tied to the healthy culture present in your body. Beyond Organic GreenFed foods and beverages have probiotics occurring naturally in them, the way nature intended; as they are suppose to be. Nothing is genetically modified. All the products are not simply organic, but beyond organic (the ultimate). For those wondering, GreenFed is grass fed ONLY. Beyond Organic has coined the term. GreenFed beef is not new, but has not been on your table for probably decades or longer. Beyond Organic produces the healthiest animal products possible. A daily diet at this level will sustain a higher quality of life as God intended us to have in the Garden of Eden!

You can always buy your products from me. That is why I have chosen to be a supplier. It is that important! You can also choose to get your product at wholesale prices, like shopping at any of the popular food club. That is why you would become an INSIDER using Enroller Code 33541 when prompted to complete your entry located at the link. Lastly, if you want a supplement income, that is the other reason to join.

Well, I hope you catch the open door...or is it the door still open on this movement for better health. That is what I wanted to share with you today, before its too late! I'll let you check out the links provided, and I will chat with you later.

Beyond Organic Dairy

What is Beyond Organic Dairy?
(...aren't they cute.)
(select any photo to become an Insider)
  • GreenFed™
  • Ancient Breeding
  • True Whole Milk
  • Low Temp Processing
  • Old World Processing Methods
Beyond Organic stands for Nutrient Digestibility, Diversity and Density. The difference between Industrial Organic (large dairies) and Beyond Organic dairy is shown below.

Beyond Organic uses a New Zealand style irrigation program to prepare pastures that grow high quality food for the animals which will provide high quality nutrition for our customers. Beyond Organic pastures have lush green and diverse forage exploding with nutrition perfect for grazing. They will continue to flourish for a wide range of cattle that will be used for milking. Cattle such as the Zebu, that would have been around thousands of years ago. Beyond Organic also uses an old style system for milking at their own Dairy Center of Excellence, equipped with modern technology. You and your family will have dairy products produced as it has been for thousand of years (old world methods) that will bring health each and every day. Discover a few of our dairy products below.

Mission Marketers
It was initially planned that Beyond Organic foods and beverages would be sold through retail store such as Whole Foods. However after careful consideration, Jordan stuck to his initiative of educating people about his product by way of Mission Marketers via the Internet. This concept of network marketing enables Beyond Organic to reach more people with their message, programs, and products. This also presents a business opportunity with significant income potential for those who are interested.

GreenFed Really Raw Cheddar, Raw Havarti and Raw Cheddar Blue cheeses are aging now. The five fold difference of Beyond Organic cheeses means they are rich in probiotics, nutritious and delicious.
  • Really Raw
  • GreenFed
  • Ancient Breeding
  • Farmstead
  • Artisanal

Suero Viv™ is a living beverage literally meaning "Whey of Life" since it begins with the whey that flows naturally from the cheese making process. Hippocrates and Galen, two founding fathers of medicine, frequently recommended whey to their patients. Whey has a variety of whole food nutrients and co-factors. It is also rich in probiotics, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, sodium, and magnesium; along with zinc, selenium and 7 B-vitamins. Suero Viv™ will be offered in flavors, sweetened with Organic fruit juice and honey, and enhanced with Organic essential oils. What makes it Beyond Organic is that it is...
  • Refreshing, Replenishing, Rehydrating
  • Electrolyte Minerals in Natural Form - Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium.
  • Contains Probiotics, Antioxidants and Enzymes making it a whole-food cultured probiotics beverage; a living tonic elixir.
  • Vitamins A, C, E and B Complex
  • Organic Essential Oils
  • Great Taste in 3 flavors - Citrus, Raspberry Lemonade and Orange Honey. (is similar to popular sports drinks, only with 10x the Potassium)

This is a little showcase of some of the Dairy Beyond Organic is offering. I will introduce you to some other products another time. I, however, think this is very exciting. Stay tuned in. Select the link to sign-up to become an Insider. Especially for times like these, and speculating the days ahead, I believe it's a good move. If you have not heard Jordan Rubin's journey and testimony, you'll find it below.

9/11 Memorial

Today we remember those taken from us on 9/11. Although it has been ten years, for many it feels as though it was just yesterday.

The beauty, if you don't mind, of 9/11 is the outpouring of love to those who lost someone that day, the unity shown amongst US citizens everywhere, and compassion that poured in from countries around the world immediately following the horror. To me the United States felt like one big neighborhood of family members, not spanning a great distance. I believe that was also in part to the strong expression of unity that arose from Manhattans Ground Zero, the Pentagon, and Shanksville that day. A monument of lights beamed where the Twin Towers stood for evenings to follow, giving everyone time to reflect and consider how to move forward. The process of healing has been long and rough for so many. My respect, love and admiration goes out to all the survivors, responders, military and others of 9/11. I look forward to visiting the monument to pay my respects in person when I come home to New York. God bless you all, and God bless America.

Fat Is An Acid Problem

Originally posted 8/25/05

Do you know any one who is over weight? Do you want to lose a few pounds or inches?

Obesity is not a fat problem - it's an acid problem. Fats bind acids and move them away from our vital organs. These fats act as a neutralizing buffer of acid when the inner terrain of our body is unhealthy. Therefore, obesity is a protective mechanism of the body. The solution is not counting calories, fats, carbs or points -The solution is to eat and drink more alkaline foods and liquids like our pH Miracle Greens and PuripHy.

Dr. Young has shown that fat is actually an over-acidification problem. What does that mean? The body creates fat cells to carry acids away from your vital organs, so these acids literally don't choke your organs to death. Fat is saving your life! Fat is actually a response from the body to an alarming over-acidic condition. The solution? Alkalize with pH Miracle Greens and PuripHy.

Healthy bodies are not overweight or underweight. A healthy body naturally maintains its own ideal weight. You can begin to restore health, balance, and harmony to your body with InnerLight. As alkalizing and oxygenation begins to take place, the body naturally begins to seek its own ideal weight. PuripHy is to help you become more alkaline with every ounce of water that you drink.

PuripHy - Helps your blood absorb the oxygen from water more easily and contributes to the neutralizing effects of pH Miracle Greens. PuripHy is a unique, proprietary form of CLO2 (sodium chlorite) which is a powerful oxygen catalyst helps cells to perform optimally.

Testimony of Dr. Youngs' 
earlier generation of pH Miracle Greens and PuripHy: "I know that this is not a weight loss program, but I lost 30 lbs the first month and my daughter lost 50. I also have lots of friends that are losing weight with SuperGreens that have been dieting for years with no success. When your body gets into balance with SuperGreens and Prime pH the fat cells simply disappear. Dr. Young is right!!"  -Ceilia Bateman

Developing Healthy Habits

All chatter and party lines aside, I hope all of you will be encouraged by some of the progress being made throughout the country as it relates to Childhood Obesity in America. I also pray you will be concerned about the presence of this issue in our society.

The issue of obesity is actually not limited to our children but sadly enough, includes them. Below is a good discussion regarding this very serious epidemic. Maybe you are in a position to bring about positive changes in your school. Well, I want to motivate you and others to get educated about this topic. Get involved however you can secure the future of our youth. Eliminating food deserts is another focus of the Let's Move campaign. 23 million people plus 6.5 million children are currently living in these food deserts located in rural and urban areas. I believe that We the People can do something about this, if nothing other than educating ourselves that they exist.

Watch the videos to learn more.

Although progress is being made, we are really just getting started with moving forward with changes in dietary habits. Everything in moderation, right? I have to remind myself of that too. Watch the video below for more information and ideas.

In my store, I provide many products for you to incorporate into your daily routine and that of your family. They are designed to infuse your body with nutrients, greens, grasses, herbs, vitamins, minerals and more. They support your body and diminish deficiencies that can compromise your new commitment. Now you can strengthen your foundation, purge your body of toxic acids and detoxify remaining impurities. If you stick to it, you will see amazing results in one month. Try it! I double dog dare you.

Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Goes Guerilla

"Good grief, Jamie! Could it really be any harder for you to improve the food choices of a school cafeteria for America's kids? I would never have suspected such opposition".

The challenges Chef Jamie faces on the ABC network reality TV show, Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution, are so surprising. Although I understand why the reasons for such resistance to change exist, I feel frustrated for him yet hopeful as I watch each episode.

I do my little part by highlighting for you -my followers- some of the progress being made in the area of ending obesity, especially with regards to children.

Planting "Three Sisters"

If you are like me you probably already planted your garden, but did you plant the "Three Sisters"? Planting Three Sisters (Corn, Squash and beans) is a sure way to get a harvest. They grow well together. Together they develop a system of support that causes them to thrive. “Three Sisters” traditional Native American planting technique grows crops in a mutually beneficial manner: the corn provides a structure for the beans to climb, eliminating the need for poles; the beans provide the soil with nitrogen that the other plants use; and the squash spreads along the ground, blocking the sunlight and preventing weeds. I learned this from First Lady Michelle Obama and her Let's Move! in Indian Country initiative.

First Lady Michelle Obama participates in a Garden Harvest Event with children and members of the American Indian community, in the White House Kitchen Garden on the South Lawn of the White House, June 3, 2011.

Let’s Move! in Indian Country comes as a response to the current obesity trend within the American Indian community. American Indian or Alaska Native children between the ages of two and four have a higher prevalence of obesity (20.7% in 2009) than any other racial or ethnic group. Let’s Move! in Indian Country, in an effort to stem the tide of childhood obesity, brings together federal agencies, communities, nonprofits, corporate partners, schools and tribes to focus on four areas:
Check out this video of Friday's garden event:

    To build on the strength of this tradition, and to address the obesity health crisis that young American Indians and Alaska Natives are facing, the Obama Administration has formed the interagency collaboration, Let’s Move! in Indian Country. Participants include representatives from the First Lady’s Let’s Move! initiative, the White House Domestic Policy Council, the Departments of the Interior, Agriculture, Health and Human Services, and Education. Informed by research and recommendations in the President’s Childhood Obesity Task Force Report, Let’s Move! in Indian Country has set the four main goals mentioned earlier.
    Let’s Move! initiative will be building upon many important efforts that are already being made in Indian Country to address the crisis of childhood obesity. Government alone cannot solve the obesity problem and reach the goal of ending the epidemic of obesity in a generation. The concept is 
    1. To support and leverage Indian Country’s help, expertise, and commitment on the ground 
    2. To support public/private sector partnerships that will further support and expand upon the great work happening throughout Indian Country. 
    Each tribe is unique, so tribal leaders will be involved to ensure Let’s Move! in Indian Country will succeed. The initiative will work in accordance with the tribes to reduce childhood obesity and related conditions so that Native youth can grow, thrive and meet their full potential in life.

    So you may be asking, what does any of this have to do with Drink Your Greens and Minerals, or Botanical Balance. Well, this strikes a cord in a topic I am quite passionate about: Nutrition, wellness, and our quality of life; Healing families, individuals, children and our nation. 

    There really is no reason for Americans to be as challenged as we are in the area of our health. We have the means, research, and the technology to help provide a higher quality of life for ourselves. "Being well" never should have become an after thought. The well being of our children should never have been compromised, and certainly not on this pun intended.

    Please allow me to continue speaking frankly, but it's crazy that in the 21st century children don't know how to cook from scratch. -Who removed home economics. The average American does not plant (or pot) 10 edible items in their garden, children die as young teenagers from obesity, others diagnosed with diabetes. -Enough already. America must relearn moderation, and practice portion management. My company website gives you a starting point with fantastic products that deliver great results. Please, make a priority to care for yourselves and your loved ones. Reach out to others as well. The rewards will be tremendous! Drink Your Greens and Minerals so you can be in shape for the amazing things life has waiting for you, just around the corner.
