According for the Centers for Disease Control in the US, more than 29 million American adults have diabetes and another 86 million have pre-diabetes.
Approximately 34 percent of the adult population in the United States also meets the criteria for metabolic syndrome. Of the adult population, roughly 41 percent of people ages 40 to 59 have metabolic syndrome, and almost 52% of those 60 and older. You will find more information on metabolic syndrome later in this post.
The CDC projects that one in three adults could have diabetes by 2050. More than one quarter of seniors (ages 65 and older) have diabetes (25.9 percent, or 11 million seniors).
Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in the United States, accounting for around $245 billion in medical costs and lost productivity each year.
Type 2 diabetes used to be called “Adult Onset Diabetes.” It can no longer be called that as it’s becoming more and more common in children.
Research has shown that the absolute best way to reduce the chance of diabetes in your kids/grandkids is to improve your own health.
Toward that end, we at Living Lite have produced a 2-part set of audio downloads (MP3s) that may help.
The first is the Extinguishing MP3. Just listen to this hypnosis recording once, thinking of a sugar, carb or starchy food that you would like to have out of your life and you will be amazed at how quickly and easily that food just disappears! You can listen and extinguish as many times as you want until your body feels so much better and–amazingly!–it gets smaller as well. Go figure!
The second recording shows you how to use your subconscious mind to help you have a healthier, more fully functioning body. As you begin to eliminate all types of sugars, toxins and poisons from your diet, your internal organs will naturally begin to function better. This recording helps you give your brain the instructions to give to your body to improve even more.
This recording is NOT intended to replace any medications. Only your Health Care Provider can do that. Please notify your HCP that you are using this recording as an adjunct to your medication, if you take any.
This recording may also help if your HCP has informed you that you have metabolic syndrome.
Metabolic syndrome is the name for a group of risk factors that raises your risk for heart disease and other health problems, such as diabetes and stroke.
Metabolic Risk Factors
The five conditions described below are metabolic risk factors. You can have any one of these risk factors by itself, but they tend to occur together. You must have at least three metabolic risk factors to be diagnosed with metabolic syndrome.
1. A large waistline. This also is called abdominal obesity or “having an apple shape.” Excess fat in the stomach area is a greater risk factor for heart disease than excess fat in other parts of the body, such as on the hips.
2. A high triglyceride level (or you’re on medicine to treat high triglycerides). Triglycerides are a type of fat found in the blood.
3. A low HDL cholesterol level (or you’re on medicine to treat low HDL cholesterol). HDL sometimes is called “good” cholesterol. This is because it helps remove cholesterol from your arteries. A low HDL cholesterol level raises your risk for heart disease.
4. High blood pressure (or you’re on medicine to treat high blood pressure). Blood pressure is the force of blood pushing against the walls of your arteries as your heart pumps blood. If this pressure rises and stays high over time, it can damage your heart and lead to plaque buildup.
5. High fasting blood sugar (or you’re on medicine to treat high blood sugar). Mildly high blood sugar may be an early sign of diabetes.
In the future, metabolic syndrome may overtake smoking as the leading risk factor for heart disease.
If you have any of the 3 conditions described above, the recordings we offer may help.
Listen to the Extinguishing recording when there is a food you may be addicted to that you want gone with ease. It’s about 22 minutes long.
Listen to the Hypnosis for Diabetes recording each day. It’s about 16 minutes long. You can listen before bed or as you awaken or any time during the day that’s convenient.
Both recordings will hypnotize you and reduce your stress as well.
We are offering these helpful recordings at an special New Year’s price of just $25 for BOTH, for a limited time. Because it is out goal to help you achieve your goal of better health this year.
You will receive links to the recordings and you may listen from your smart phone or download the link to your files and access them when ever you want.
(It was recently pointed out to me that many of you may already have the Extinguishing recording. If so, you may order these recordings separately for only $13 each, saving $4.00 per recording).

My late husband was diabetic with a TYPE A (on steroids!) personality. I truly believe that something like this would have lengthened his life. His diabetes exacerbated his heart disease which took his life.

“Thanks, Katie, you are one heck of a great coach!!!” Norma, 2018
Do you know people who are “lucky”?
The right people and opportunities just seems to drop in their laps, without much effort.
Their bills are paid and they always seem to have extra money for what they want.
They seems to have life all figured out . . .or maybe they just have a close relationship with Spirit.
Maybe they just know how to listen to their Inner Guidance and follow it.
Do you ever get the feeling that you are meant for something greater?
Would you like a stronger connection to your Inner Guidance?
Do you want to establish a relationship with God? Or change an old relationship—one that doesn’t work for you any longer?
So many of us, in this day, are searching for new meaning in our lives; a source of comfort and peace. But we don’t know how to get there. Or we don’t know it when we are there.

If you answered “yes” you probably need the Hypnosis for Pain Reduction MP3.
In just a few short minutes a day, you may be able to relieve many of your aches and discomfort.
Using new techniques in hypnosis and neuro-linguistic programming, your subconscious mind can master your physical pain and you can choose to minimize it–and maybe even learn to make it disappear.
We know that opiod addiction is an epidemic in the US. What started many down that path was pain. If you or a loved one needs medication for pain, why not try using natural pain reduction methods? You just may find a much more effective–and way cheaper–method.
AND this recording is now being offered for a GREAT price–Just $10! This amazing price is offered for a limited time–only until Friday, February 9, 2018, at 5 PM, PST.
If you answered “yes” you probably need the Bemer.
The Bemer is a medical device from Germany. The company is 20 years old and there are over a million Bemers in service. In Western Europe alone, there are over 4000 hospitals, medical clinics, and universities using Bemers.
The Bemer does not cure anything. What it does do, is significantly improve your circulation. With improved circulation, your immune system is much stronger and your body can heal itself more easily.
Most of us think about arteries and veins when we talk about circulation, but arteries and veins represent only 26% of the circulatory system. The other 74% is comprised of micro vessels.
Each of us has approximately 37.2 trillion cells and each of those cells is attached to a micro capillary. The micro capillaries deliver nutrients and oxygen to the cells and remove metabolic waste and carbon dioxide from the cells. This is one of the body’s most vital functions.
As we age, the capillaries don’t function as well as they did when we were younger. Bemer has 5 international patents on their Bemer signal which stimulates the micro capillaries and improves the vasomotion of the micro capillaries.
What that means to me is: My hip with bursitis doesn’t hurt anymore; my shoulder that had the torn rotator cuff doesn’t hurt anymore; my sporadic low back pain is GONE and I have more energy than I’ve had in years. And to accomplish all of this, I simply lie on the Bemer mat in a reclining chair for a few minutes several times a week. Worth it? Absolutely! No more ibuprofen (which was trashing my kidneys) or pain medication–which I can’t take during the day, anyway, because the lowest dosage puts me right to sleep.
If you want to experience this amazing device, you can have 3 sessions for FREE in the Greater Seattle area. Just call my friend, Willis Olson at 206-362-4400. If you live outside this area, call Willis and he will find someone in your area to show you how the Bemer works.
I became eligible for Medicare in July, 2015 and enrolled shortly after. It turned out to be one of the best days of my life!
Prior to that time, I had been buying insurance on the “free market”–nothing free about it, if you ask me! I’ll give you my feelings about free market insurance after a little historical context.
I’d been self-employed most of my life. In college–during the Ice Age–at the University of Washington, in Seattle, WA, all students were covered and could use the Health Facilities for free. I went a few times for minor illnesses.
After college, I joined Group Health Cooperative in Seattle. It cost a little over $20 a month–back in the ’70s. For that we got all medical and drug expenses for FREE. Let me make sure you understand: There were NO co-pays or deductibles. Sounds great, doesn’t it?
Well, over the years, that idyllic version of American health care disappeared. By the time I was in my 50’s, health insurance has soared to $500-$600 + a month (just for me) and the deductibles were insane. I wanted to get a colonoscopy in my 50s, as was recommended by my MD. I called my insurance company to find my co-pay and found it was $1,000! Needless to say, that colonoscopy didn’t happened until I was covered by Medicare.
When President Johnson signed the original bill into legislation, Medicare was free to all seniors. Now it costs a little over $100 per month per person. (Not complaining!). Back then all your medical and hospital costs were covered. Now you get about 80% coverage. But you can buy supplemental insurance, which I opted to do. For an additional $214 a month, ALL my medical bills are paid. There is no “in network” restriction. I can go anywhere I want and get it covered, within the medical community. Often alternative health providers are covered as well by limiting what they can charge (my chiropractor can only charge $32 per visit, for example).
Prescription medications are covered by yet another insurer. Again, it’s a reasonable amount–$25 a month–and well worth it.
I pay about $350 a month for no deductibles, 100% coverage and most prescription drugs are under $10 a month.
There is another obvious aspect to this: The above is for the highest risk population in the country–seniors. If this amazing coverage can happen for us, it begs the question, why can’t it for all Americans?
Certain politicians decry “Medicare for All” as putting the government between you and your doctor. That’s a lie. Right now, insurance companies are between you and your doctor. I have NEVER received a call from a government worker saying they wouldn’t pay for any procedure. It just doesn’t happen.
When I was diagnosed with breast cancer in February, 2017, paying for the surgeries and treatments never crossed my mind. A close friend of mine experienced the same diagnosis with “Free Market” insurance and it took her over 4 years to pay off her medical expenses.
The next time you vote, ask your candidates about Medicare for All and if they agree that health care is a right and not a privilege, give them your vote! It’s really a vote for YOU.
God Bless You, LBJ!
I am the healthiest person I know-especially among my family!
I don’t drink, smoke or do drugs (any longer!) eat organic when possible, work out (fairly) consistently, meditate and live a mostly stress-free life.
I couldn’t help myself. Even though I’d told myself I wouldn’t, I found myself asking silently, “Why me?”
I was sitting in a beautiful conference room in the Breast Clinic at the Virginia Mason Medical Center in Seattle. Everything in the Breast Clinic was lovely: The lighting and furnishings, even the bathroom. Everything except the reason we were all patients there.
I was attending a planning meeting with my surgeon, Janie Grumley, my nurse coordinator (and God send!), Natalie, a surgical resident and my sister, Gretchen. I thought, “One reason I haven’t had a real job for the last 30+ years is that I HATE meetings.” But I digress.
I had been given a binder packed full of tabs, notes and my medical records. I couldn’t help but remember my old friend, Dave DeVarona, telling me so many years ago, “If you don’t have a real business, you’d better have a great notebook.” This is a great notebook.
Funny how the mind wanders during stressful meetings. It’s like my brain knows when it’s had enough and needs to check out-to funnier thoughts.
But I digress-again.
I am being shown a diagram of breast anatomy and how breast cancer progresses. I have DCIS, ductal carcinoma in situ. It’s inside the duct wall and, at this point, it ain’t goin’ anywhere. Good news. It’s microscopic, and, as the science and technology stands right now, needs to be removed before it “learns” how to spread
As Dr. Grumley explains it, our cells regenerate by dividing billions of times in a lifetime. Sometimes they just have the wrong code and that divides as well, and keeps dividing, leading to cancer. (That helps answer, “Why me?” Just because).
I think of my dog, Heidi. She’s a dachshund and loves to burrow. For years she would sleep under the covers at my feet at night. I loved that. Then, one night I farted and she walked out from under the covers, glared at me and never went back. One little mistake changed her behavior for good. Same with cancer.
As I’m watching Dr. Grumley draw on the pictures of breasts in my notebook, my mind wanders to Michael Keaton’s movie, “Multiplicity.” In it, he discovers how to clone himself to make his life easier. He has 2 clones and life is going well. Then one of his clones decides to clone himself and the result is a mess! His 3rd clone is a goof ball that keeps screwing up his life. Right now my cancer cells are Michael Keaton’s #3 clone. We need to remove those cells before they learn how to live in “normal society”-the rest of my body.
I love my brain.
