5 Vital Health Lessons from Native Goats You Simply Can't Ignore
If I were you, I'd start watching native goats closely from now on--if you want to stay healthy.


For one, there are not many goats in the city, so this means you have to go to the countryside a lot. And that means fresh air, fresh food, and quietude and peace. That's top-rate health, no less.

But wait. There's more.

1. Native goats eat nothing but organic grass. And these goats are not known to be susceptible to ailments or diseases. You just let them roam around, exposed to the elements, eat grass and they grow strong. They don't need special vitamins or steroids or antibiotics to stay healthy.

This means, like native goats, we are better off eating nothing but vegetables and fruits, especially green leafy, and especially organic. Some smart Alecks say, "I'm not a goat to be eating leaves." But yes you are, from now on--that is, if you want to stay healthy. Be goat. Or, go goat!

2. You just let them roam free. When I and my wife visit their home in Nueva Ecija, we'd see native goats just roaming around stress free. Compare them with hens, rabbits, cows and fish which are kept in confinement, stressed and uneasy. Even dogs set free to run and explore are healthier than caged dogs.

This means we should be free from anything that stresses us unhealthily and puts limits to our freedom. God created man with a natural inclination to want and enjoy freedom--to be themselves.

3. They run a lot. When our locality, Project 8, was yet a new community just fresh out of a forested area in north Quezon City, I saw a lot of native goats roaming around, even in the streets. Even herds of cows just roamed around in our area then. And you'd see the native goats just running to and fro, almost all the time. The exercise or workout kept their bodes sturdy and healthy. If you try to feel the body of a goat, you'd notice its tough muscles.

That means regular workouts are also important to us.

4. They're strong. Goats are strong. It would take several people to pull it to the direction it doesn't want to go. And if it wants to ram its head against something to attack it, it has tremendous strength to do so.

You see the power of organic vegetables and workouts combined? If you want to stay strong and healthy, learn from the diet and activities of goats.

5. No problem with constipation. One of the problems of keeping a goat in your property is frequent bowel movement. Wild or native goats don't seem to have constipation problems. In fact, the problem is, you'd see their poops scattered everywhere.

If you have a vegetarian diet, you have no constipation problems. And that means overall health. Remember, good health starts in the digestive system.

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

Do You Know the Right Way of Eating Fruits 2

Previously on Right Way of Eating Fruits

Another mistake people do when eating fruits is eating them long after peeling their skin. Not many people know this, but all fresh fruits are alkaline, even soir ones. I met one "nutritionist" who thought sour fruits were all purely acidic---just because they were sour.

Take kalamansi for instance. Fresh kalamansi is alkaline. Those who know herbal medicine know this. But make sure you consume it right after slicing it open. If you let it lie open like that for a long time it becomes acidic. Moreover, the Vitamin C in it quickly evaporates. You get nothing but sourness.

So those fruit juices sold in bottles in grocries and malls? You get nothing from them except water, flavor, sugar and synthetic Vitamin C perhaps, which is acidic. If you want to keep fit, an acidic tummy is the last thing you'd want.

If you peel off a banana, make sure you eat the whole thing now. Don&#…

How Posture Affects Your Confidence Level

Try it. Make it a habit to stand erect---chest out, stomach in---and make sure you look relaxed and natural doing it. No hint of struggling. How? Well, keep practicing this posture.

And then always lift your chin and look straight ahead with relaxed, rested eyes. Even if you don't feel confident inside, that look will make people think you have it. That look and posture often earn you respect.

Now, when you see people awed at you because they think you have powerful self confidence---when in fact you don't---you begin to feel confident. It builds up like a miracle.

I tried it once. I used to stand up with stooping shoulders and often looking down at the floor. Then one time I saw how it looked in a mirror. Such a look of defeat and weakness. Then I wondered---does good posture really make a difference?

So I started practicing good posture. I studied how to stand, sit and walk erect, like a real model. I watched how models moved and imitated them. Together with my regular work…
