    Spring water, that's all I drink. This man knows what he's talking about. He's on point when it comes to sleep. I could go as far as to say lack of sleep is extremely detrimental to your health..

    The real concern and question is where can we obtain clean spring water? At this point of time all water of all kinds and from all accessible locations is tainted or poisoned. We are not given the opportunity to drink clean water and we are not allowed to make our bodies strong and fully functional to its full potential. We are being destroyed and eliminated slowly without noticing whats happening concerning even the most basic simple things that life to survive needs to Prosper

    What Mr. Gregory said was absolutely false and misinforming. Many of people have poised dogs and costs by putting substances in their food and drink. The animals consumed it without thinking twice. He was full of a lot of nonsensical information.

    This guy is wrong about almost everything he talks about. Example, not all gasses rise up. Also I've seen dogs drink from the toilet. Another thing the number one cause of traumatic death in babies is hear trauma, caused by falling. I guess running isn't physical fitness. Fake as medical experts talking shit they have no idea about.

      Metabolism is person specific. As a physically active person on a medical diet, skipping breakfast and not taking in calories through the day would have me in the ER. But glad it worked for you.

    If running sends shockwaves that damage the brain I'd love to see a long term IQ study on marathon runners. Intense exercise is shown to actually increase neurogenesis, and humans are primally gifted runners. Between that and "the grease in your blood rises as you sleep" sounds like some major broscience.

    One thing I really learned from Mr. Gregory, *DO NOT DRINK DISTILLED WATER UNLESS YOU ARE FASTING!!* Distilled water leaches things out of your system. Not only toxins, but minerals also. The best water to drink is spring water, NOT purified.

  • Marlon Williams Refrigeration&HVAC

    Lmao this dude is exactly who dr sebi be talking about. I’m hearing nothing but theories without explanation but dr sebi gave facts. So Dick said don’t run 😂 running isn’t exercising lol he said you’ll develop bad bones and it’s bad because when running 🏃🏾 because your body vibrates you brain. Smh 🤦🏽‍♂️

    // My personal meditation: "100 outbreaths":
    - I inhale to full lung capacity through my nose for around 2-4 secs.
    -Then I slowly exhale out my mouth for 5-8 seconds (until all air out of lungs completely)
    -Then I do this 100 times counting down until the last exhale at 0.
    - I do this during an evening walk through nature. Natural light and oxygen and the beauty of nature is helpful.
    - But it works anywhere you feel comfortable, whether walking, standing, sitting or lying down.
    - Along with emptying your mind the goal is to get a light fluffy cloudy feeling thru your body. Calm your heart rate & feel fresh/revitalized.
    *relax your shoulders, chest, tongue, throat and jaw, just gradually let them fill with warm circulating oxygen and they'll ease up on their own.*
    *If you have any abdominal/anal tension, relax your feet and thighs as you let your core comfortably expand (trust me)*
    +you'll learn your body over time and tweak it to suit your needs
    +It ain't gotta be perfect, just keep showing up daily
    +If you want to do 150, 200 outbreaths, or more that's fine. Go until you feel centered.

    I did research on water several years ago and I came to the same conclusions about spring water being the healthiest because it actually hydrates the body, but these other bottle waters cause mineral shifts to happen ( in my opinion) and can cause you to become dehydrated; not severely, but enough to cause problems over time.
