Yes, My Pyramid looks simple enough. However, few people are able to eat properly. The result: our bodies are not properly nourished. If this is prolonged through habits, both cultural and personal . . . our health and vital energy can decline and our immune system begins to evaporate. How to find a solution? Good intentions are not enough. Reading books are inspirational but . . . without experiencing the benefits we lose heart and we are soon back to our old, not so good, nourishment style.
There are companies who have solutions. Taking their products with consistency to feel and see the results. Of course, if you can’t feel and see the result of your health regime, then you are not going to keep it up.
I have been on my health program since Aug 2007 because I can feel and see the difference. By comparison, I was just getting by, before. But Before . . . I thought it was normal. That is what I thought. And . . .ignorance is bliss until you become humble enough to admit you don’t have all the answers.
Now, wanting to ‘pay it forward’ , I am providing this ‘Personal Renewal Guide’ with Yellow, Orange, Blue and Green quadrants. Fill in your numerical responses to the statements in each quadrant. Add up the score in each quadrant. The color with the highest score is the metabolic area of focus for your health regime. This enables your health coach to guide you towards nutraceuticals which can best support your body’s apparent needs for healing itself. Yes, the body has the ability to heal itself with the right support. And, the FDA has not approved of any of these statements. This activity is not intended to diagnose, heal or prevent any disease.

On a quiet 1970’s fall day, near a lazy sloping hill’s crest, I stood with an easel explaining how we recognize that life, specified complexity, is the result of intelligent design (I borrow the phrase because it works well). All morning as groups of students waited for the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute bus and departed. This received as much recognition as a billboard ad with no pictures. At lunchtime, the bus stop became quiet and deserted.
Quietly, I considered the possibility of more frustration when the students returned. My dark mood was reinforced by the cigarette butts, coke cans and more discards littering the bus stop’s unloved, dusty ground.
EUREKA! I would make my point, without words.
A scraggly branch was modified to become a boom-like rake. I cleaned the ground until it was pristine and uniform. Stray rocks were brushed to reveal their original finish. Standing back I studied the scene and positioned them in reference to where the bus would stop and where passengers exit. I began tracing rhythmic, resonant lines around the rocks. Time flew. I was having fun as I thought of what might happen when the students arrived. Just beyond the hill’s crest the sound of the approaching bus grew louder and I moved out of sight.
The bus arrived. Students left the bus, hesitating for a moment before continuing their trek. I smiled. These students proved the point I was trying to make earlier. They avoided the ground etchings as they continued to their destinations. Finally, the last student left the bus. He stopped and considered the ground for several moments, and, finally, I emerged from behind the bush. He recognized me from earlier in the day and asked, “Why?”
I smiled and explained. “I wanted to prove we can recognize that life is not an accident, without a lot of words. Life, existence, all of this” – I motioned all around us — “is the result of a designer, God, whatever you want to call the creator of all this. I created these patterns in the dust. You noticed and responded without explanation. The creator has caused everything we see here to take form and in some cases to live. We are learning to be response-able. The first step is to ask, “Why?” We both smiled and departed with a nod.
