    I recently attended a networking event held by the Air Force Academy Graduates Association. At these events, the goal is to meet as many as you can and exchange cards, drink a few and remember the good old days at the Academy. I always ask someone new " What did you do in the Air Force and What are you doing now?" Quite often, someone replies, "I was a Budget Officer in the Air Force and now I'm a Financial Advisor."  To which I usually reply, "I was a Doctor in the Air Force and now I am a Financial Advisor!" Then, "Follow me on this". "The two things people want out life is Health and Wealth. To achieve their Wealth/Security people gather around them advisors like you who help them invest their limited amounts of Time, $$ and Energy regarding career choices, investments and financial priorities. Likewise, people need a someone like me to help them invest their limited amounts of Time, $$ and Energy regarding their health.  That's what I do. Doctor in Latin means Teacher so my job is to teach people how to best invest Time, $$ and Energy regarding Nutrition, Exercise and Skin Care!" If you read my definition of the "The Inside Outside Way of Life!" it is worded in financial terms. No playing around at Inside Outside! Our Strategies are Sound, Timewise & have Great Value short term and long term!! Any investment you make in yourself to maintain your health, take it to a new level or regain your health is definitely a wise allocation of your precious resources of Time, $$ and Energy.  Make the decision today!  Invest in You! You and those you love will reap the rewards!

     "Look to your health, and if you have it, value it next to a good conscience." Isaac Walton.

    The only risk with Inside Outside is not  investing!

    Some do it Different, None do it Better!

    Start Here with "The Whole New You Program!"

Dr. Christian first became Utilities for your iPhone and iPad!aware of HeartMath in the late 90's when he experimented with their early software, entitled FreezeFrame.  Dr. Christian has followed them closely and HeartMath has now evolved into a major developer of techniques and software/hardware to help us deal with stress.  Dr. Christian is currently enrolled in a HeartMath Interventions course which leads to certification as a HeartMath Therapist.  We will be offering HeartMath techniques and training to our clients as part of their programs by the Fall of 2013!  In the meanwhile please look at the Video of the Month, "Stress, Portrait of a Killer", a National Geographic Special featuring Robert Sapolsky Phd. of Stanford University.  We also have copies of the DVD which you may borrow to better understand the impact of stress.  Do It!

Chocovivo! been around longer than sugar, cultivated as early as 1100BC and is one of the most popular food types in the world.   A recent Meta-Analysis of 42 Randomized Controlled Clinical Trials documents the many beneficial cardiovascular effects of the active compounds in Cocoa beans such as the flavenols and the flavenoid epicatechin.  Cocoa has twice the antioxidants of red wine and three times that of green tea.  For our clients who are not on reduced calorie diets, we recommend a small 10gm dose of pure 100% Cocoa of about 60 calories a day or what you see in the hand.  We are promoting the CHOCOVIVO 100% Cocoa Brand which can be ordered from the link below or bought from us.  Another reason to get that weight off and add back some Chocolate!!  If you need a little sweeter Chocolate the Lindt 90% Dark Chocolate has a little added sugar and limit yourself to 1-2 squares, don't go below 85% as there is too much added sugar.

    Dr. Christian went to his 50th High School Reunion in Tuscaloosa Alabama last June. At the reunion he was talking to a classmate, Richard Hamner and of course the question we always ask is "What are you doing now Richard"?  Richard Hamner Phd, Professional Engineer and now Soap Chemist, replied that he and his wife Elaine had been making for over 20 years the Purest Soap in the World!! We exchanged cards and Richard sent Dr. Christian several samples of the of the soaps they made!  Inside Outside is now carrying several  variations of this incredibly pure soap.

    Their goal has been to produce the purest soap made anywhere in the world. Because of the purity of Green Mountain Soap, virtually all people, including those with allergies and skin problems, can use Green Mountain Soap. Many of their customers suffer from Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS), and others are diabetic or undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment. Green Mountain Soap has no medicinal or curative properties, but because of its purity many people can use it when the additives in other soap might irritate their skin.  Come by and claim your free sample bar of this specialty product!

    Member Spotlight: Bob and Frances Jean Sunderland! Friends & Supporters of Inside Outside

    Bob and Frances Jean Sunderland! Our favorite couple! 

    We Salute Inside Outside Clients Bob and Frances Jean Sunderland! They have been devoting 30 minutes, twice a week, to Hi-Lo Strength training since 2006!  Over the decades, Bob and Frances Jean have helped the community grow by way of Frances Jeanís Father, and several other land owners, who donating almost 200 acres of land to what we know as the Medical Center.  Bob and Frances Jean  owned a Life Insurance company whose headquarters were in San Antonio for 56 years. Eventually the Life insurance Company was bought by American National but they still invest in commercial real estate. They also spend their time managing investments in two Ranch Properties in Texas that have been in family ownership throughout the years.  One of their properties is 1,500 acre McMarr Ranch, in Waring, Texas, for family and friends. The other is Trinity Ranch near Batesville, Texas which is a hunting ranch.


    Bob and Frances Jean have been happily married for 55 years and surely their 5 Grandchildren help motivate them to maintain their strength!  They travel every summer for a few months to Estes Park Colorado where they have a second home and have their families visit during their summer break. They are members and supporters of University United Methodist Church.  We are blessed to have these kind and gentle friends as part of the Inside Outside Family!
