CoachDavidAlexander.com Solar plexus strike for self defense and mma

WARNING! Never do this, you will kill someone!

Push your hand in his face and when the attacker or opponent opens up the solar plexus, you would smash your heel palm (tip of ulna or Styloid Process) into the solar plexus. For the mma fighter you would punch through the solar plexus (affecting the liver/gall bladder/diaphragm) or you could even use a palm strike which I think is an under utilized tool in mma.

CoachDavidAlexander.com Neck break from behind

Also posted on http://www.1LessonSelfDefense.com.  This is not a technique that we would normally use in the B.E.T. Self Defense System.  It would only be used if you were a larger defender against a much smaller attacker.

WARNING!!! What I teach will seriously injure or even kill. These techniques should only be used in a life threatening worst case scenario. If you’re uneasy about taking someone’s life to save your own or someone you love, then this is not the system for you. Go home, board up your windows, lock your doors, buy a few pit bulls, drudge a moat and NEVER, EVER GO OUTSIDE! You must stop when you feel that the threat is neutralized in the eyes of the law. You are responsible for knowing your states self defense laws.

Eat berries to prevent age-related memory loss

(NaturalNews) Recent research published in Annals of Neurology and lead by Elizabeth Devore and her team of researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston showed that women who eat more berries have a slower rate of age-related memory loss than those who do not. The study began in 1980 and followed Nurses’ Health Study Participants via questionnaire administered every four years. Between 1995-2001, the researches measured the cognitive function of over 16,000 women over 70 years of age. Cognitive function was measured via three phone interviews at two year intervals. The phone interviews consisted of asking participants to remember details from a paragraph read to them or from a list of words or numbers. It was found that women who consumed more berries experienced a slower decline in mental function that averaged out to about 2 1/2 years. Furthermore, it was found that a higher intake of total anthocyanidins and flavonoids was associated with a decreased rate of cognitive decline.

The women in this study did not eat large quantities of berries each day. In fact, memory improvement was noted with only 1/2 cup of blueberry consumption or 1 cup total strawberry consumption per week. It was also noted that women who ate more berries, tended to exercise more and be of a higher income. However, even after adjusting for those confounding factors, it was still found that greater berry consumption was significantly associated with improved memory and brain function.

Previous studies have shown similar results. A study published May 2005 in the Annals of Neruology showed that increased consumption of green leafy vegetables was associated with a significantly slower loss of memory and cognitive function. Fruit and vegetables are thought to help prevent age-related memory loss and cognitive decline due to their polyphenol component. Studies conducted on rodents have shown that certain plant polyphenols from grapes, strawberries, blueberries, and plums can improve brain function. In fact, studies have shown that blueberry extracts can protect rats bred to develop brain changes similar to Alzheimer’s Disease from memory decline. Blueberries are thought to be so effective because they contain anthocyanidins, an anti-oxidant which helps move blood into the brain. Human studies have shown that adding blueberry juice to the diet each day can improve memory.

Affording quality produce

Blueberries, strawberries and other fruits and vegetables aren’t just important for preventing memory decline. There are a whole host of studies showing the protective effects of eating lots of fruits and vegetables against cancer, diabetes, heart disease and other serious illness. If possible, it is best to consume organic fruits and vegetables, as berries especially tend to be very high in pesticides. Since organic berries are very expensive, the cheapest way is to either grow your own or buy from a local, organic farm. Berries and other fruits and vegetables can be easily frozen or canned for consumption when they are of season. While organic, quality produce is more expensive, the health benefits and decreased medical costs down the line are more than worth it.

Modern-day wheat is a ‘chronic poison,’ says doctor

(NaturalNews) All set to order that next sandwich on wheat bread? Using wheat-based pasta instead of regular spaghetti noodles tonight because you’ve been told wheat-based foods are better for you?

Not so fast, says one doctor.

William Davis, a cardiologist, calls modern-day wheat a “chronic, perfect poison” in a new book all about the world’s most popular grain.

What gives?

Davis says the wheat we are currently eating isn’t the same thing your grandparents used back in the day.

Modern wheat is “an 18-inch tall plant created by genetic research in the ’60s and ’70s,” he told CBS’ “This Morning” program in a recent interview.

“This thing has many new features nobody told you about, such as there’s a new protein in this thing called gliadin. It’s not gluten,” he said.

“I’m not addressing people with gluten sensitivities and celiac disease. I’m talking about everybody else because everybody else is susceptible to the gliadin protein that is an opiate,” Davis continued. “This thing binds into the opiate receptors in your brain and in most people stimulates appetite, such that we consume 440 more calories per day, 365 days per year.”

Can you say expanding waistline?

‘We’re seeing hundreds of thousands’ lose weight

In the interview Davis was asked if the agriculture industry is capable of changing back to using the grain it once produced.

That’s possible, he said, but it would be costly to farmers because the old-style wheat doesn’t produce as much yield per acre, and in a hungry world where the population is growing, food is becoming more scarce and prices are already on the rise, that choice would be a tough sell to today’s agriculture giants.

Nevertheless, Davis notes that a movement is afoot to drop the weight-causing grain, and that those who have done so have said goodbye to wheat are dropping clothes sizes.

“If three people lost eight pounds, big deal,” he said. “But we’re seeing hundreds of thousands of people losing 30, 80, 150 pounds. Diabetics become no longer diabetic; people with arthritis having dramatic relief. People losing leg swelling, acid reflux, irritable bowel syndrome, depression, and on and on every day.”

Those are real results and they are widespread, Davis said – not isolated or fluky.

Okay, so someone decides to shun the wheat; what are their alternatives? “Real food,” Davis suggested, like avocados and olives, olive oil, some meats and, yes, veggies.

“(It’s) the stuff that is least likely to have been changed by agribusiness,” he said. “Certainly not grains. When I say grains, of course, over 90 percent of all grains we eat will be wheat, it’s not barley… or flax. It’s going to be wheat.”

So, this is “really a wheat issue,” he said.

Smart diets, sans wheat, will help trim the belly

There are those health resources and dieticians, he said, that are serving up and advocating a more balanced diet, like the Mayo Clinic, that does not include wheat. But in his interview, Davis said what they are offering is just a poor alternative.

“All that literature says is to replace something bad, white enriched products with something less bad, whole grains, and there’s an apparent health benefit – ‘Let’s eat a whole bunch of less bad things,'” he told the program. “So I take…unfiltered cigarettes and replace with Salem filtered cigarettes, you should smoke the Salems. That’s the logic of nutrition, it’s a deeply flawed logic. What if I take it to the next level, and we say, ‘Let’s eliminate all grains,’ what happens then?”

“That’s when you see, not improvements in health, that’s when you see transformations in health,” he added.

Without question, the nation is in the throes of an obesity epidemic. Cheap foods (for the most part) like wheat-filled pastas and other fillers have caused the country’s collective waistline to expand to bursting. But as Davis notes, you don’t need fad diets and gimmicks to lose the belly fat and cut back on the calories. You just need to eat smarter.
