Vitashower Corp Vitamin C Shower Filter TP-1000

Oxidation causes Vitamin C to change color from a white or a light color to tan, yellow, orange, brown and then black after repeated exposure to light, heat, and air. The change in hue has led to widespread anxiety over whether or not vitamin C that is no longer clear still has benefit for the dichlorination.  Obviously the darker the color, the LESS Vitamin C is present.

After many years of research and development, Vitashower Corp invented the first vitamin C shower filter (TP-1000) in the world having solved the challenge.  Quality of the casing exceeds the quality of the last generation. The transparent housing allows the users to check whether Vitamin C changes color and, when necessary, replace the cartridge.  It represents a significant advance in Vitamin C shower filter technology.   Features of the Vitamin Shower Filter TP-1000:

  • De-chlorinating agent is 100% pharmaceutical grade Vitamin
  • Totally neutralizes chlorine and chloramine
  • Improves condition of skin and texture of hair
  • Attaches easily to any shower fixture without lowering the height
  • Filter life of up to 15,000 gallons

  • Contains a nutrient which is essential for better health
  • 100% organic
  • Durable transparent housing
  • Easy to Install.

Daniel Plan Recipes We Love

Here are two really fantastic recipes from The Daniel Plan:

Dr. Hyman's Sun-Dried Tomato Turkey Burgers

  • 3 tbsp sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound organic ground turkey
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2-3 tbsp fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 tbsp garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of black pepper

Cover the sun-dried tomatoes in warm water and soak until soft. This will take about 10 minutes, depending on how soft your tomatoes are to start with. Drain and chop tomatoes into small pieces. Combine with the remaining ingredients and form into 4 patties. Grill, pan-sear or bake in the oven at 375 degrees until done, about 8 minutes. Serve over a large salad. Serves 4

Grilled Fish with Spicy Raw Slaw

  • 1 pound wild caught halibut or hearty white fish
  • 1 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • dash of salt and ground pepper
  • 2 cups purple or green cabbage, shredded
  • 1 cup carrots, shredded
  • 2 tbsp organic smooth almond or nut butter
  • 2 tsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • juice of 1 lime

Brush halibut with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill on a hot grill or grill pan until flaky, about 8 minutes on each side. In a separate bowl, combine nut butter, rice wine vinegar, cayenne and lime juice. Toss with cabbage and carrots. Serve fish on top of spicy slaw.

Daniel Plan 3/23/17: What Should Happen Now?

So, after 40 lessons, here we are at the end of the five phases.

You're probably thinking, "What should happen now?"

First off, remember that it's a process to change lifestyle. Generally people do better with incremental changes rather than wholesale change. If you haven't already, try doing some little things. Remember that everyone has a different starting point. Take some time today, or tomorrow, to make an honest assessment of your health and see where your greatest needs are. If you haven't done the goal exercise, where you write down your goals in each of the five areas, I encourage you to stop right now and do it. This is a very valuable step in keeping your attention where you see your needs.

Below I've included a brief overview of the five phases of The Daniel Plan, as well as some valuable resources for each area:

FAITH: Spiritual health gives you a foundation for building habits and perspectives for building health in any area. Health comes from recognizing and using God's power in your life and treating your body and mind with the care He intended.

FOOD: We need to get back n the kitchen and enjoy real, fresh, whole food. The rule of thumb is "If it was grown on a plant, eat it. If it was made in a plant, leave it alone." Focus on fresh fruits, vegetables, beans, whole grains, nuts, seeds, eggs, chicken, fish, naturally raised meats and spices.

FITNESS: To have a fit, healthy, energetic life we need to exercise. Most of us have hectic schedules and as such, we are going to need to schedule time for fitness in order for it to happen. The American College of Sports Medicine has discovered that moving your body on a regular basis impacts your physical, intellectual, emotional, social, financial and spiritual health.

FOCUS: Mental health is vital for your overall health. Body, mind and spirit work together. Negative thoughts, or lack of positive thoughts can consume you. Whatever gets the most of your mind's attention will direct other areas of your life. Ask yourself: what is my motivation to stay the course? The two most important words when it comes to your health: then what? As in, "if I keep on this course of eating or activity level for the next five years: then what?"

FRIENDS: When it comes to your health everybody could use a buddy. We often see people struggle when they are trying to make a lifestyle change and their spouse or family is not on board. Find someone, or better yet a group, where you have accountability, encouragement, motivation and prayer partners.

In closing, remember that in undertaking this course of action not everything will be easy but "we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."

Make it a point to be fulfilling your purpose to the best of your abilities every day.

Feel free to continue to reach out to me if you feel so called.

Today's Bible verse:

...being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
— Philippians 1:6

Healthy blessings!


Daniel Plan 3/22/17: Love, Listen, Learn and Liberate

Hello again!

We are winding up the friends part of The Daniel Plan today.

I want to do an overview of the plan and continue with some personal observations for a while. As always, please don't hesitate to e-mail me if you have any questions or suggestions regarding the program.

So, today we will be covering the four L's: love, listen, learn and liberate.

First, I want to remind you of something. One of the tenets of this program, and specifically the friends portion is dependent on a few things. For starters, we must be brave enough to be authentic, to admit our issues and accept the weaknesses of others. This well help create a community where every member feels accepted and is not afraid to ask for help. 

We can support each other by doing the following:

LOVE each other. Treat each other with humbleness and patients. Much like God, those who love us should always accept us where we're at, while at the same time expecting more from us. They expect us to grow. 

LISTEN to each other. Admit your weaknesses and struggles, and then listen to your friends as they share the same.

LEARN from each other. Share what works and what doesn't work for you. Tell each other about what you have tried in faith, food, fitness and focus.

LIBERATE each other. Do this, by showing each other grace. Encourage each other when you've made mistakes or hit a roadblock in your journey.

Paul tells us in 1 Thessalonians:

Encourage one another and build each other up
— 1 Thessalonians 5:11

Community helps us all succeed in our goals, and also brings us joy. Through relationships with others, we get to live in the love that God wants to give us.

Today's Bible verse: 

No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.
— John 4:12

Until tomorrow.


Daniel Plan 3/21/17: We're Never Meant to Go it Alone!


Today's message is brief. 

I think that it is important to recognize that we are not to meant to go it alone. Maybe some of you remember the Simon and Garfunkel song "I am a Rock". There is a line in the song that says "for a rock feels no pain and an island never dies". Sometimes we try to live an insular life so that we don't get hurt. We put up barriers between ourselves and others to keep from experiencing disappointment or sorrow. However, these same barriers keep us from experiencing joy and love as well.

Paul in Romans tells us: in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.
— Romans 12:5

Paul is saying that we each play a part in the body of Christ and it is up to us to participate. It is easy to discount this, or say we are too busy to be part of a group. The reality is that it might not always be us that is helped by our participation in a group.

Sometimes we can end up being an "encourager" because we have experience in a certain area that can only be understood by somebody who has been through that same situation. In my own case, it has been in dealing with an elderly parent who has Alzheimer's. For others it can be going through a trial with addictions, dealing with a loved one's suicide or the loss of a child. Sometimes it can be just being there to listen and care. 

The point is that we can make a difference when we get off the sidelines and participate.

Today's Bible verse:

...that is, that you and I may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith.
— Romans 1:12

Until tomorrow...
