What Happened to the YMCA? | Integrity, What is It? | Review

I used to be a fan of the YMCA; I was a member for years. Do you remember the 1978 song  by the Village People? “YMCA . . . YMCA . . .”

When I joined the YMCA in Florida around the year 2003, they assured me that the aerobics room was available to members as long as there wasn’t a class, or any other activity, in session. All members were welcomed to practice their stuff there. I used it regularly to dance.

In 2006 I moved to San Diego from Texas, where I also used the aerobics room at the YMCA. I transferred my membership to the Mission Valley YMCA. There I also used the aerobics room until recently; until this lady (director?) came into the room, saw me dancing, and informed the employee in charge that I wasn’t allowed to use the room “unless there was an instructor present;” that was their policy, she said.

To be honest, this happened once before at the La Jolla location, also in San Diego. At that location the woman was so rude and unprofessional when asking me to leave, that I wrote a letter to the director complaining, and explaining that the woman in question could be in need of professional help; she seemed to be psychologically disturbed in her unwarranted threatening behavior. Nothing was done other than the director explaining that it was a policy that they had to reconsider, and (to make it more puzzling) it had nothing to do with their liability because when a member joins the YMCA he signs a form exonerating the organization if an accident happens.

I also spoke to a member of the board of directors about the matter to no avail. But I did not worry about it because I stopped using that location due to losing a job I had in the area. But when the problem resurfaced again at the Mission Valley location, I decided to cancel my membership and go elsewhere. And that’s when I noticed a complete lack of integrity.

Integrity means honesty. But it has a particular connotation. It also refers to parts integrating with each other, as in unity or wholeness. In other words, you don’t say something today and then deny that you said it a couple of days later. That is a lack of integrity. I am explaining this here so that if the YMCA comes in contact with this post they can learn what integrity is. After all, honesty is one of the things that they are supposed to teach their young members.

Anyway, when I went to the office last month to cancel my membership, they offered me a less expensive plan assuming that money was the cause. But I explained that the reason for the cancellation was not money but the fact that I wasn’t allowed to use the aerobics room. They proceeded then to cancel my membership, and I left.

But it occurred to me after I left that it took a month for them to cancel a membership. For they were collecting directly from the bank, and needed to do the paperwork and submit the cancellation. So maybe I could reduce my last month payment by downgrading my membership for that month. I called them, talked to the same person, and he said that there was no problem. I stressed that the cancellation should still be active at the end of the agreed time. They said there was no problem, the process wouldn’t interfere with my retraction, but I had to return and fill another form. I did. And again I stressed that the cancellation was still to be applied on the due date. He agreed.

Are you guessing where this is going? Next month, when I checked my account they had withdrawn the regular fee. I went back to the office and talked to the same person again. He said he would check to see where the mistake was. He did. And with a straight face, he called his boss. They said that the last form I had filled had enrolled me on the lower rate program, but it wouldn’t be active until the following month.

I looked at them in disbelief. They both knew that I had canceled and why. They said again that what I had done was change my membership. I looked at both of them, told them that they weren’t being honest, and to please cancel my membership. There was nothing else to say really; the YMCA lacked integrity. I had to fill another cancellation form.

The names of any of the characters above are irrelevant; they represent the organization. And I ask you, how is the YMCA going to instill integrity in their members when they themselves don’t have any? How are they going to develop strong kids, strong families and strong communities? You know something else, I was a member at the Mission Valley location close to four years, and some staff members I never saw give a smile to anyone.

I should have canceled that membership a long time ago.

Lymphoma Cancer | A Treatment That Works

For some time now I have had the nagging suspicion that the reason we haven’t found a cure for cancer is because there is lots of money to be made in cancer research.  Why find the cure? Let’s make money. Then I found this article by Jamie Reno with information that is related.

“Imagine, if you will, that there is a remarkably safe and effective treatment for one of the nation’s deadliest and most common cancers that works better than any other available treatment. Now imagine, if you can, that doctors aren’t telling their patients about this treatment because they don’t make as much money administering this drug as they do other, less effective, more toxic drugs. This eerie scenario couldn’t possibly be happening anywhere outside a sci-fi screenplay, could it? Yes, it could.”

Do we live in an immoral society? Maybe?

Urine Drinking | Mahatma Gandhi | Amaroli

Recently, I came across a derogatory blog about Mahatma Gandhi. One of the things it pointed out was that he drank his own urine. It is interesting to note how unethical people can twist facts for their own purpose.  I just discovered a book written by doctor  Billy Goldberg with Mark Leyner, and it says that amaroli (urine therapy) is an important technique in yoga practice.  And the Chinese  Association of Urine Therapy says that urine is sterile, antiseptic and nontoxic.

I have to admit that I am sticking to orange juice for the time being. But I will keep in mind that urine properly prescribed can be used to treat cancer and other illnesses. And you can certainly clean a wound with it if nothing else is available; it contains hormones and enzymes but no viruses or bacteria.

Swine Flu Preventive Methods | By Dr. OZ? Not really.

I just received an email from Andrew Perri enclosing an article by Dr OZ  on how to prevent the swine flu effectively. Here it is (blue underlining is mine)

“The only portals of entry are the nostrils and mouth/throat. In a global epidemic of this nature, it’s almost impossible to avoid coming into contact with H1N1 in spite of all precautions. Contact with H1N1 is not so much of a problem as proliferation is.

While you are still healthy and not showing any symptoms of H1N1 infection, in order to prevent proliferation, aggravation of symptoms and development of secondary infections, some very simple steps, not fully highlighted in most official communications, can be practiced (instead of focusing on how to stock N95 or Tamiflu):

1. Frequent hand-washing (well highlighted in all official communications).

2. “Hands-off-the-face” approach. Resist all temptations to touch any part of face (unless you want to eat or bathe.)

3. *Gargle twice a day with warm salt water (use Listerine or Hydrogen Peroxide if you don’t trust salt).  *H1N1 takes 2-3 days after initial infection in the throat/ nasal cavity to proliferate and show characteristic symptoms. Simple gargling prevents proliferation. In a way, gargling with salt water has the same effect on a healthy individual that Tamiflu has on an infected one. Don’t underestimate this simple, inexpensive and powerful preventative method.

4. Similar to 3 above, *clean your nostrils at least once every day with warm salt water, or hydrogen peroxide. *Not everybody may be good at Jala Neti or Sutra Neti (very good Yoga asanas to clean nasal cavities), but *blowing the nose softly once a day and swabbing both nostrils with cotton buds dipped in warm salt water is very effective in bringing down viral population.*

5. *Boost your natural immunity with foods that are rich in Vitamin C (Amla and other citrus fruits). *If you have to supplement with Vitamin C tablets, make sure that it also has Zinc to boost absorption.

6. *Drink as much of warm liquids (tea, coffee, etc) as you can. *Drinking warm liquids has the same effect as gargling, but in the reverse direction. They wash off proliferating viruses from the throat into the stomach where they cannot survive, proliferate or do any harm.”

Self-discipline is when your conscience tells you to do something and you don’t talk back.

My friend Carol ( is being smothered by second hand smoke. And she is rightfully upset; second hand smoke is a killer. Are you smothering your neighbors inadvertently? This is the explicit letter she wrote:

“Dear Unit XXX:

Please be advised that all your nearby condo units are now suffering from ALL the smoking coming from your unit.  Second & Third floor units can smell the cigarettes/cigars all day/night long.  We have closed our vents; it still comes through & our units NOW reek due to your habit.  We cannot sit in our units watching tv or reading without inhaling the fumes.  Give us back our clean air.

It is hazardous, toxic, noxious, & detrimentally affecting our health.  The fumes from your unit have exacerbated in just the past few months with nearby units suffering from the excessive smoke inhalation.  Your smoking has created allergies, headaches, nausea, respiratory conditions to nearby condo owners costing OUR health with doctor visits because of your choice of habit. Please do something ASAP.

Please get help & call 1.800 no butts.  Please do your smoking far from the unit or tightly close & seal ALL your vents, windows & doors & inhale the toxicity yourself:  Not US!  It constantly seeps & permeates & lingers in the walls & floorboards.  You are killing us with second hand smoke while you enjoy a cigarette/cigar at the risk/hazard of everyone around you.  Live & let live & let us all breathe in peace & high quality air index which we once all enjoyed.

This letter will be sent to the Management for further action in one week’s time along with our doctor visits documenting the truth of this situation.

Thank you for understanding your health habit is not just about you – it is affecting all of us.  We live in a community.   Please restore our freedom to breathe clean, fresh air 24/7 day and night.

Thank you for keeping our air index quality environment clean & clear for everyone.

Your Neighbors.”

Swine Flu | Useful Information | Physio Scene

I just came across a health and fitness site with useful information and tips. It is called Physio Scene. Below is an example of one of their articles (about the Swine Flu) and a link to the site:

“Well, it has come to my attention that the more I read news articles and watch the news on the television, it seems that the swine flu isn’t going anywhere. I figured I’d write a little educational post here regarding the symptoms, things you should be aware of, if you’re worried about catching this H1N1 virus that has been going around.

First let me explain to you guys and gals that the reason the swine flu is a little different from the normal seasonal flu is because it also has components of bird and pig influenza viruses in it.

So let’s get down to what the basic symptoms of this swine flu are, shall we?

* High fever, which can sometimes be absent, in other words hidden. Normally this fever runs around 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit.
* Aches in your body, generally everywhere
* Runny and/or stuffy nose
* The chills (Normally associated with high fever)
* Headaches
* Being fatigued and/or overly tired
* Excessive coughing
* Sore Throat
* Vomiting/Diarrhea

If you feel that you personally are experiencing some or most of those symptoms, than there could be a small chance that you are infected. I am NOT a doctor however, so I would definitely get yourself to one”.

Jerky Direct | March Newsletter | Feedlots

Be advised. The information contained in this post will make you think twice before ordering your next steak.  By the way, chickens are treated the same way.

“Why we don’t use corn-fed meat in our jerky” By Jerky Direct.

“For the first time in history, because of cheap, subsidized corn production in this country, millions of animals are now raised in close confinement and fed on diets that are not healthy for them.

In these huge feedlots animals are forced to live mainly on corn, not grass. Why? Because it’s cheaper. Instead of grazing four or five years from birth to slaughter, animals are now  brought to slaughter within 14 to 16 months. They are fed tremendous quantities of corn and an arsenal of drugs.

Animals can’t live on such diet for very long. It would blow out their livers and kill them. So they are bred and fed to get to slaughter quickly, and the antibiotics keep them alive long enough to slaughter. They would not survive on this diet without antibiotics.”

The meat from these animals is “definitely not right for your health”  And the animals themselves live a miserable life.

“Jerky Direct uses only grass fed and/or certified organic beef not raised in these huge industrialized feedlots. The organic certification states that not only the animal itself, but its mother must have been fed an organic diet free from all the unnatural chemicals and additives.”

Dragon Acupuncture | Treatment

I just finished my first acupuncture treatment and I found it effective. It happened that I recovered recently from a dance injury to the plantar fascia (ligament running throughout the bottom of the foot). So I started practicing again, and apparently I went too fast too soon and sprained a ligament on my right knee. With three acupuncture sessions in two weeks I am walking, and even climbing stairs, without pain. The swelling is about gone. I should be back on the floor in a couple of weeks.

The Experience:

The treatment uses points in the meridian channels to stimulate the flow of energy and blood in your body, disolve the blockage at the injury location and speed the recovery process. The needles are inserted in specific locations. The insertion of the needles is usually painless (or with little pain) unless the acupuncturist misses the location and has to reinsert the needle. After the needles are in place there is no pain.

Each session is about half an hour long. For better results Lynn (my acupuncturist) also uses heat (a heat lamp) and herbs (Mugwort and herbal patches). She also shows you pressure points with which you can help yourself.

According to the Encyclopedia of Alternative Medicine:

“In Chinese medicine mugwort, known as Ai ye or Hao-shu is highly valued as the herb used in moxibustion, a method of heating specific acupuncture points on the body to treat physical conditions. Mugwort is carefully harvested, dried and aged, then it is shaped into a cigar-like roll. This “moxa” is burned close to the skin to heat the specific pressure points. It has been used in this way to alleviate rheumatic pains aggravated by cold and damp circumstances.”

“A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association reported on the successful use of moxibustion in reversing breech birth positions. The study found that 75% of 130 fetuses had reversed their position after moxibustion treatment of the mother. The technique is said to stimulate the acupuncture point known as BL67, located near the toenail of the fifth toe, stimulating circulation and energy flow and resulting in an increase in fetal movements.” Encyclopedia of Alternative Medicine by Clare Hanrahan
