Most people would say they should be healthier. The sad truth is that we’ve never been sicker – despite more doctors, more hospitals, more drugs, greater technological advances in diagnosis and ‘treatment’ (after the fact = sick care), man has never been sicker than we are today. The deterioration of modern man’s health has gotten to the point where recently the CDC announced that for the first time in the history of man on earth, children are not expected to live as long as their parents – did you get that? That’s never happened before. Ever. And it’s the result of toxic and deficient lifestyles in the form of processed packaged nutrient-poor foods filled with health-robbing chemicals and devoid of life-giving nutrients, combined with sedentary and stressful lifestyles.

The good news is science has shown beyond a shadow of doubt what is required to be healthy – the doctors who founded and created Bonfire have not only vetted this research on your behalf to outline in great detail how to successfully adopt healthier lifestyle habits, but they’ve been teaching it to literally tens of thousands of patient for over 58 years of combined clinical practice. It’s now available to you as the Bonfire Program and it’s FREE. The Bonfire Program is a 90 Day Health Transformation Program that will gently and effectively guide you through adopting healthier habits into your lifestyle within the domains of eating (fuel), moving (air) and thinking (spark).  [click here]

Get the Body You Want … Without Fad Diets or Gimmicks. 

Perhaps the single most identifiable characteristic of our unhealthy modern culture is the fact that the vast majority of people today, both young and old, are overweight or outright obese. Being overweight is the hallmark feature of nearly all chronic diseases – heart disease, cancer, diabetes, autoimmune/inflammatory disease, and the like. Being overweight isn’t about ‘being overweight’ (or out of shape, or ‘fat’, or whatever), it’s about being unhealthy. There is no other way to put it – when someone is overweight, they’re unhealthy. Period. Do you want to ‘gain health’ (i.e. lose weight)? Then sign up for the Bonfire Program today and start losing weight and getting healthier tomorrow.

Are you facing a health challenge?

Allergies? Skin Problems? Autoimmune Condition?

You know, it wasn’t that long ago that when someone died of cancer, it was unusual – it was a ‘big deal’. Today, it’s commonplace – everyone knows someone who’s has or has died from cancer (every other weekend is a Breast Cancer Walk). Similarly, between 1940 to 1980, an overweight kid was somewhat of a rarity; or, for those of you old fossils like Dr. Paul, remember when there was that one kid at school who ‘had asthma’? Today, registering a child for school always involves a list of current medications, allergies, health conditions, etc. (not to mention the 15% of boys today taking Ritalin or some other ADD/ADHD medication). How peanut butter and jelly used to be an American tradition; now, it’s an act of bio-terrorism at ‘NUT FREE’ schools. What’s most fascinating is that no one is asking … WHY?

Learn the keys to getting the body, health and life you’ve always wanted and deserved – for FREE.

Why are so many people, children and adults alike, off the rails with their health? It’s quite simple really – it’s our lifestyles; as modern humans, we’re so off base from what and how we’re supposed to eat, move and think that the current health epidemics (obesity, allergies, diabetes, autoimmune, dementia/neuro-degenerative diseases, etc.) are to be expected. Think about it – if you fed your dog a steady diet of donuts, pizza, soda pop, and Twizzlers, and never took him for walks, what do think his health would be like? Think he or she would have skin problems, digestive issues, develop cancer?  Of course our dogs do suffer because we feed them processed packaged crappy food made from corn, soy and junk vegetable oils in the form of ‘kibble’ … and so do we suffer – because we’re living unhealthy lifestyles as well. But there is an answer, a better way – a correct path to take in our lifestyle choices. The Bonfire Program is built upon evidence-based research proven to promote health and reduce, and in many cases actually reverse, many health conditions affecting modern man today. [click here]

Chicken Sausage with Sliced Apples

by admin

1-2 chicken sausages per person
1/2 apple per person

  • Place sausages in sauté/fry pan* with 1/2 cup water over medium heat
  • Cook through, turning sausages
  • Allow water to eventually evaporate as sausages continue to cook until browned

*NOTE: It’s recommended to NOT use non-stick cookware because of toxic chemicals like Teflon leeching into the food and into your body from eating foods cooked in those pans. So using water, coconut oil, butter and high smoke-point oils such as sunflower, sesame and grape seed oils is the method to prevent sticking and burning.

Poached Eggs with Chicken Sausage and Grapefruit

by admin

If you are someone who has a high level of exercise, you may need to eat three eggs and/or two chicken sausages – increasing your intake of healthy fat is very important for blood sugar regulation and reducing midmorning cravings (see note below). Obviously you don’t have to poach your eggs – if you prefer scrambled or fried, do what works for you.

2 organic free-range eggs per person
1 organic chicken sausage per person
1/2 grapefruit per person
sea salt and fresh cracked pepper

  • Fill medium (2-3 qt) saucepan 1/2 way with water; bring to boil
  • In separate pan*, place chicken sausage and small amount of water; cook over medium, turning occasionally, for about 8-9 minutes
  • Turn heat down to low-medium and crack eggs into water; cook for 2-1/2 minutes; remove eggs from water using a slotted spoon (lift egg out of water – press on yolk to test doneness)
  • Season eggs to taste with sea salt, fresh cracked pepper
  • Serve with slices of organic grapefruit

*NOTE:It’s STRONGLY recommended to NOT use non-stick cookware because toxic carcinogenic (cancer causing) chemicals such as Teflon leech into the food and into your body from eating foods cooked in those pans. So using water, coconut oil, butter and other “high smoke-point” oils such as sunflower, sesame and grape seed oils will prevent or minimize sticking and burning. Soak pan immediately after cooking in wate and clean with a metal ‘scruffy’ scrubber.

Week 10 Fuel Insight: Food Quality

by admin

ESSENTIAL ELEMENT:  Food Quality

Critical Concept:  Keep it simple.
It’s so important to keep things simple.  Think about it.  Life is stressful, complex and complicated.  Our food shouldn’t be.  There are natural laws that we must follow to be healthy, happy human beings.  We should be eating the foods that were available to thousands of generations of our ancestors – it’s what our cells expect.  If we veer from these selections, our cells get confused and our bodies get sick.

Don’t you just love simple rules:  “If it wasn’t food 2000 years ago, it is not food today.”

Human beings have a fascination with science.  We think that we can improve anything.  As much as this ingenuity has spawned incredible discoveries, advancements and conveniences in our lives, it has created a world of trouble for our stomachs.

70% of our diets now consist of foods that did not exist 200 years ago.  Hydrogenated vegetable oils, refined carbohydrates, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Genetically Modified Foods, chemical preservatives and additives now constitute the bulk of what modern humans consume daily. Processed food and  industrialized farming has transformed our food into “food-stuff.”  We have made a dramatic shift away from natural foods in their natural forms to a totally unnatural, toxic and deficient diet-style.  Eating this way is incredibly expensive.

“Getting well and staying well is expensive, but it’s cheaper than being sick.”

People often make the argument that eating healthier, fresh, whole food is more expensive.  At first pass, you may notice that your weekly grocery bill is a few dollars higher, but with simple considerations, the cost-effectiveness of eating well is obvious.  Making the choice to eat healthier foods implies that you are forgoing the other, toxic/deficient foods.  Eating a healthier diet has been irrevocably proven to improve immune system function, reduce blood pressure, normalize blood sugar, improve digestion, reduce reflux, heart burn and constipation, and reduce allergies, asthma, eczema, acne and arthritis.  Think of all of the money that you’ll save if you don’t get sick.

“Staying well takes some work, but it’s easier than being sick.”

Some people suggest that it’s too difficult to eat healthy.  Choosing the diet-style recommended by Bonfire Health has been shown to reduce cholesterol, heart disease, strokes, diabetes, obesity and cancer.  I can’t think of anything that is more inconvenient than chronic illness.  Following the Bonfire lifestyle means adopting a mind-set and a skill-set for better living.  With a little know-how and practice, you’ll be a master of the life that leads to health and vitality, not the slave to the lifestyle that has been proven to create sickness and disease.

Some foods are inherently toxic to the body.  For the most part, we know which foods to avoid.  Most of the confusion is found in the other half of this food discussion:  deficiency.  The other side of the blade of toxic food choices is the fact that these foods are consumed instead of the nutritious foods that our cells require.  This “double-whammy” sets the stage for accelerated aging, and promotes both acute illness and chronic disease.

A Bonfire vital behavior is to add as much nutritious, real food to your diet as possible.  It is almost impossible to over-eat fresh vegetables.  Eat plenty of wholesome fruit, nuts, seeds and berries.  Enjoy lean cuts of organic, grass-fed meats, poultry, game and wild fish.  Always add the good stuff first– there will be less room, and eventually less desire for the rest.  A Bonfire best practice is to keep your grocery cart on the perimeter of the store.  This is where all of the fresh foods are found.  Join a Community Supported Agriculture co-op and support local farmers.  Being a Locavore is a great way to save yourself and the planet at the same time.  Buy locally-raised, grass-fed beef, buffalo, game and poultry.  Choose local organic eggs, fruits and vegetables.

The vital nutrient density is higher in these local foods, so the return on your investment is direct – not to mention the benefit that you get from re-establishing your connection to the food that you enjoy.
