Own The Day Own Your Life - by Aubrey Marcus

Time for some Sunday motivation to prepare us for the week.

See how this millionaire broke and ripped his whole face apart but turned it into the best thing that happened to him.

More importantly, see how you can too. Image
Marcus is the founder of Onnit, a multi-millionare dollar supplement and fitness company. Prior to this, he fell asleep at the wheel and was in a devastating accident.
Lesson 1: From Marcus – injuries like this are either a blessing or a curse. It is up to you to decide how you take it. For Marcus, he started exploring how all natural supplements and vitamins could help his healing. They helped so much, he decided to open his own company.
Lesson 2: Naps are the best way to improve your energy levels, more so than coffee or other stimulants. We started implementing this, instead of being tired but wired, and working at a subpar level, crush a 15 to 30 minute nap. Studies repeatedly support this.
Sleep is your fuel. Naps are your refuel. Everything else is artificial. If you keep a car going every day that needs a tune up, but you just keep patching it, it will eventually break.
Lesson 3: Set goals that benefit your OVERALL health. Too often today we see people who only want to lose weight, only want abs, only want big arms, only want to run 50 miles a week. Health is physical, mental, spiritual, social, etc. ALL of these are equally as important.
Take these 3 lessons to heart and implement them this week. See how it affects your life. Small things like this build the foundation for success. More importantly, be very keen on how you perceive things...it can make all the difference.
At RootCause we believe everybody has a God given right to live life to the fullest. Holistic healthcare and personalized healthcare should be the only healthcare.

Prozac, Zoloft, Celexa. You've likely heard of these medications. Western Medicine loves to overprescribe.

However, why don't we turn to natural lifestyles modifications first?

What is fascia?

Well, it’s a biological container, a connector for each and every single organ and muscle.

If you were to dissect a cadaver, fascia is literally a greasy, slippery mess, and importantly, different for each and every individual.
A key principle is that fascia is ultimately all connected, there is no separation from your toes all the way to the top of your skull.

And the magic of this fascia is that every single cell in your body is hooked ( and responds to) this interconnected tensional environment.

The Golden Spice: Turmeric
Turmeric is native to South Asia with over 133 types of species. India is perhaps the country most associated with turmeric. It has a distinctive yellow color and flavor and cannot be missed.
As an antioxidant, turmeric extracts free radicals and increases antioxidant enzymes, all while being an antiinflammatory agent. The effects don’t stop there, turmeric also inhibits mutagenicity (mutating cells) and possesses anticancer / antitumor activity.

Contrast therapy? This refers to the combo of exposure to heat and cold to elicit physiological responses.

The use of contrast therapy can be found globally: traditional onsens in Japan, plunge pools/sauna in Nordic cultures, to sweat lodges of Native American tribes.
Regardless of methodology, the ‘stressful’ exposure to freezing cold and scorching hot temperatures has been proven to dramatically improve a number of health and wellness factors.

Many are familiar with the “hot sauna cold plunge” which we will focus on today.
