Survival of the Fittest

Survival of the fittest.  There was an old barn at Tower Hill Farm. Inside my father kept hundreds of pounds of navy beans.  We had a backup hand pump well with plenty of fresh water. His survival plan if the grid went down was for us to crush the beans with a hammer and mix the powder with water to sustain life.  He said, “Doctor when the sh*t goes down, you better not be cooking. Onions on your breath will become a status symbol.” DG

My current urban reality doesn’t afford me such conveniences. I’m constantly in motion, bi-coastal most of the time.  My urban bugout strategy is streamlined and convenient.

We are not only what we eat, we are what we assimilate. We are everything we consume, what we read, what we watch, what we listen to, what we brush our teeth with, clean our homes with, and clean our bodies with. Toxins lurk everywhere.  Don’t let your “cure” be worse than the disease.  

Here’s my list. In full transparency, many of these products I have a professional relationship with. When I find something exceptional I reach out to a company and discuss creative ways for attachments.  I like to be vested in products I believe in and utilize daily.  Information is power!

CBD Tinctures (sublingual) and Topicals

CBD has great anti-inflammatory properties. Virtually all sickness and disease begins as some form of inflammatory process, including COVID-19. Any disease with “itis” on its end is inflammatory Bronchitis, rhinitis (common cold), gastritis, dermatitis, etc… I use the Alive in the AM & the Ease in the PM.  I utilize the topical Recover for local pain or soreness as needed typically post-workout.

High-quality Cool Mist humidifier for cold weather.  

Consistent use of humidifiers in cold dry weather helps to prevent upper respiratory infections. Our skin and the body’s mucosal membranes are the first line of defense against microbes. Dry air cracks and weakens membranes and provides an opportunity for microbes to bypass our defenses.

Published by Dr. Christian Claxton Gregory

Dr. Christian Claxton Gregory (Bio) Christian Gregory is the eighth child of Dick and Lillian Gregory. Born in Chicago, he was raised on a 1,000 acre farm in Plymouth, Massachusetts, where the pastoral setting and lifelong lessons in wellness spurred his interest in physiology and the mind-body connection. After graduating from Morgan State University, he earned a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Life University in Atlanta. Dr. Gregory practiced in Washington for twenty-five years, caring for DC natives, leading entertainment figures, and friends in the movement including Rosa Parks, Coretta Scott King, Betty Shabazz, Dorothy Height, Cicely Tyson, and Stevie Wonder. When Dick Gregory decided to resume an active speaking and entertainment schedule, he became his father’s manager. Together they formed Dick Gregory Media, Inc. in 2015. Dr. Gregory’s unique combined experiences in patient care and entertainment management fostered the desire to develop the linkages between activism, communication, the performing arts, and physical well-being. To that end, he established Tower Hill Farm Health & Wellness and Tower Hill Farm Entertainment. Since his passing in 2017, Christian Gregory has managed his father’s estate and intellectual property, and has successfully guided the development of other projects on his father’s life, including the stage play TURN ME LOOSE and the film THE ONE AND ONLY DICK GREGORY.
