Q for regulars

Posted by Michele [4954.6457] on July 28, 2009 at 15:46:09:

I have a question for regulars -
Those who have been on the board at least
2 years
5 years +

How many do SR 2x a day and have had it certified
Have no longer needed to tweak diet, etc
Have found what works for them in terms of exercise

I'm just wondering as many of us continue to frequent the board so
there must be a reason - and I see (even with myself) repeated
issues with the same folks or, advice being given and unsure if the
folks giving the advice practice what they preach.

My next question, if you are a regular here, WHY are you "here" if
you have started and maintain the 3LS barring walt/jan.....
*this is NOT to attack, contrary to what you may think - it is instead
to figure out what the health is of regulars and what methods have
been used....if you even NEEDED to do 3LS.

Think I've been here almost 5 years now, don't remember how long exactly.

I don't follow 3LS strictly at all. I do the exercise component, and I try to keep a good diet but it isn't entirely wholefood. I'm going to start with SR soon. One step at a time..

I mainly stick around to learn anything for purposes of self-improvement. I like the interaction, and certain people keep me entertained.

"My next question, if you are a regular here, WHY are you "here" if you have started and maintain the 3LS "

I'm not clear on your question... it seems similar to a previous question that was archived (link below)... could you clarify?

Hi Michele,

I just posted this this morning and I think it answers your questions as well:

in reply to: doing all the right things and still sick posted by Dan [9886.8007] on July 27, 2009 at 11:10:58:

Hi Dan,

Let's look at your comments.

"i feel like i keep reading on this board and other places, people who eat well and do whatever they are supposed to do, exercise etc, and is still sick."

What is the right thing? What's right for one person may not be right for another person. Each one has to find what will actually help them. I used to eat what other people call healthy food, only to find out it was not healthy for me at all.

What is sick? Some people come here with incredibly terrible illnesses, and after doing the "right thing" for them, have basically overcome the big bad issues, and now have some minor health issues that they are still working on. I wouldn't call that sick, I'd call that well. Even well people keep having minor issues -- for example, a healthy person starting a new sport and having sore muscles or something.

"i keep hearing about people getting cancer. people who are thin and only 48 with blockages in their hearts."

Well yah, the quality of the food most people eat and the way they live their lives (high stress and NOT taking good care of their bodies) -- doesn't generally lead to good health, etc.

"maybe im focusing on the negative. it does seem there is no way out of this mess. forgive me if i seem negative. just sharing what im experiencing."

I see what you are saying. Bodies need to be cared for and when they are well cared for, health is usually the result. The way out of the mess is to start taking excellent care of oneself.

Best wishes,
Jan


Michele, I'm here because I continue to learn. My diet continues to need tweaking and improving. My exercise program changes with my moods, interests, work load and energy level. My SR isn't doing very well at the moment but I'm working on it -- and it was INSTRUMENTAL in my getting well. Now it is not as necessary.

And.... although I've reached a great state of health, I realize that a person can continue improving on that great state continually! It's a wonderful thing!

Also to help others find their way out of the health care mess out there and help them feel better....

Best wishes,
Jan

Me too: I find it highly beneficial to continue to learn. Just wondering
if others feel the same or am I being "codependent" in visiting here!
LOL

I really like it; is that bad????
*Not like being not feeling well and so on - just like the group.

Hi Sapphire. I didn't bother with the link as I am in the here and now.

As far as you not getting the question, you seem to get it enough to
research it, so maybe just take a little time with it? I know you are a
bright woman and it isn't a trick or set of trick questions... and if it
makes you uncomfortable, simply ignore.

God, you are hateful... mine was a sincere question so that I could better answer your question... I just remembered the previous question you had asked because it was so similar and was wanting to be sure if you were asking something different... be well..

P.S. I spent a total of 3 seconds researching this just typing in your name and a couple of words I remembered from your previous post into the search engine...

I am so glad to see that the board is working for some folks very well,
and that some find continued aid. I agree with both of you very much,
and obviously what you've been doing IS working.
Hopefully others follow suit, including me.

I have been here about as long as you. I like to read Walt's replies. I have learned much from him, including patience in dealing with others. Something I can always work on. I have met some really nice hard working people that have overcome lot's of problems.

Silver Fox!

I'd liken coming to this board as visiting a friend who was very good to you in the past. I mean, you don't dump them if you don't need them anymore, right? It's a comfort to see Walt help others, also to see people who were at the stage WE were years ago, (when we were very sick and the allopathic community wasn't helping)discover this board. As for my SR, I did it twice a day for about 3 years, then cut it down to once a day as my health got better (and also because a new job made it impossible for me to practice it midday like I used to). I had it certified at the very beginning by a biofeedback expert. I NEVER miss my once a day SR, which I do when I get home from work. The only time my health takes a turn for the worse is a).I gravitate back to junk food and b).I let things stress me out. My exercise is a LOT of walking. Diet wise, I can do treats here and there, but when the "treats" start happening every day, I notice a change in how healthy I feel. Let's face it, you can get away with a lot of junk food, not exercising and stressing to the max when you're in your 20's and thirties, but after that, your body really lets you know that you can't, um, do that stuff anymore. I think of the 3LS as a guide for life, not a cure all that allows you to go back to living an unhealthy lifestyle once you feel better.

I agree totally with you Trish, that the 3LS is a guide for life. I think if I just keep doing the 3LS, even imperfectly but pretty good, my life will be moving in a good direction.

Best wishes,
Jan

Even if we do all the right things and maintain a pristine lifestyle, our health status fluctuates, because we are living beings, not fixed, concrete statues! Aging, environment, stress, variable food & water quality (more environmental influences), viruses, genetics, etc. all contribute to health fluctuations.

I come here to learn about others' experiences, share my own, and problem-solve with some of the brightest people I've encountered online. Walt's contributions alone are simply invaluable to me. I never fail to be inspired by this community.
