The beach is your free natural gym! Spending time here can help stimulate nearly all of our senses, especially touch. In addition, when shoeless, we can absorb negative ions from treading on the sand. Sand is a natural exfoliant, so there is yet another benefit to us when strolling on the sand with no footwear. It cleanses our skin and removes dead skin cells. In addition to the sun, seawater is good for our skin, with the salt acting as an exfoliant. The sun opens our pores, and while swimming, the water enters and expels the toxins, so sea bathing contributes to detoxification. Another important benefit of spending time on the beach is stress release. The gentle atmosphere, with sounds of the surf and sight of the ocean and various animals like sea birds, makes us feel peaceful.

We asked Thomas to explain why people experience plateaus and tell us what he does as a trainer to help his clients move forward again. “And it just boils down to two things, that’s it. It’s either their workout strategy is not working for them anymore, or their nutrition strategy is not working for them – or both. Once you go into plant-based training, you start eating the right way. That doesn’t really have to change much from a training standpoint.” “The most powerful driving force for a lot of people that I run into, to make the switch to go vegan, is seeing that it works better and faster. Once they try it, and they do it, and they get results faster than they ever have doing it any other way, they are like, ‘I am in. I can do this for life.’”

He is a master trainer for three different fitness companies and the host of the number-one vegan fitness and bodybuilding podcast on iTunes, “Vegan Body Revolution.” In his book, “Miracle Metabolism,” he shares the protocol he created to help people get leaner, fitter, healthier – and faster – on a plant-based diet. We started by asking Thomas to reflect on what sets him apart from other fitness trainers.

“The Inner Classic of the Yellow Emperor” also states that winter is a time for lower metabolism and energy storage. It is best to go to bed early and rise with the Sun. As the kidneys represent the reservoir of willpower, we should let our minds enter a state of dormancy and refrain from focusing on the outside world. Avoiding the cold and keeping warm is recommended. As to which parts of the body especially need safeguarding from the cold, it is crucial to pay attention to the back and feet. According to TCM, one’s winter diet should focus on nourishing the yin and tonifying the yang to enhance the body’s resistance and immune system. Black-colored vegan foods are thought to be good for the kidneys and thus should grace our dining table in the cold season.

When you hear the word "compassion," what do you associate it with? In multiple studies over the past 25 years, researchers have determined that this characteristic is an inborn tendency of all humans. In the fifth book of the New Testament, it is recorded that Lord Jesus Christ said, "It is more blessed to give than to receive." (Acts 20:35) If performing acts of compassion make us happy, how does happiness translate into better health? In other words, when we are focused more on others than on ourselves, our life is rich in compassion and our wellness is enhanced. When the people around us are joyful and at ease, we become more cheerful ourselves.

The forest is an ecosystem full of lives. Therefore, forest therapy is a method that uses lives to heal and guide other lives. A forest is like a mother who accepts us without saying a word. To put it another way, forests have a secret power, an invisible power. Dr. Lin has been working on adding a spiritual dimension to this therapy. May forest therapy continue to grow in popularity so that many more people can benefit from nature’s blessings and elevate their health.

Growing research reveals that the food we eat can also significantly influence how we feel emotionally and socially. Even a small, positive dietary change may thus improve a child’s cognitive functions and prevent or reduce behavioral health issues. The UK’s Mental Health Foundation refers to diet as an“underestimated” determinant of mental wellness. A healthy diet is significantly related to better emotional health, such as higher self-worth and fewer temperament issues. The findings further revealed that good relationships with parents and peers are associated with eating fruits and vegetables every day.

Dr. Glatt shows great kindness to his patients, and especially feels for those who have drug addiction issues. He sincerely wants all those he sees to make the maximum possible improvements in their health and lead high-quality lives. My heart goes out to those people because they get trapped; they get trapped biochemically. My colleagues sometimes say to me, “How can you take care of those people?” meaning alcoholics and addicts. And I say they’re all wonderful people. Those that get into recovery, and I take care of, they love me, and I love them.

We are privileged to have Dr. William Glatt, an esteemed internal and addiction medicine specialist, share with us his expert knowledge on opioids, pain treatment, and the nature of drug addiction. Opioids are morphine-like chemicals primarily used as analgesics to relieve severe pain. However, employing opioids for pain management has its inherent risks. Pain management need not be drug-based as there are many options available. Nowadays, more people are using meditation for pain issues. Inner contemplation is also another way to prevent, control, or resolve certain long-term conditions.
