Inspirational Message of the Day

You can’t stop life events from happening to you, but you can control how you respond to them. Maintaining power over your life and defining your own destiny lies in the choice you make to see each life event, good or bad, as an opportunity versus stress. Don’t let any situation, health problem, or concern take your power!!

THE MISSION

There is a saying that “the people perish due to a lack of knowledge.” It has certainly been my experience that a great number of people here in America and around the world are indeed perishing (and suffering) due to a lack of knowledge about key health matters. The fact of the matter is that we are overwhelmingly suffering and dying from preventable diseases.

According to the World Health Organization, an estimated 80 percent of heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes, and 40 percent of cancers, could be avoided if common lifestyle risk factors were eliminated. Preventable diseases cause 86 percent of deaths and account for 77 percent of the disease burden in the developed world.
So if the problem is a lack of knowledge, then the solution is to fill the knowledge gap that people have about how to take better care of themselves. I am convinced that there are a significant number of people who want to do a better job of taking care of themselves but just don’t know how.

My sole purpose of doing everything that I do in medicine is to help people to avoid needlessly suffering from preventable and/or treatable disease. In anything you try to do, your tasks will be easier and more likely to be accomplished if you understand what you are doing and why. My goal is to teach people in plain language just what they need to know to take charge of their health.

Taking charge of one’s health is the first step in ensuring that one is fully able to engage, experience and enjoy life to the fullest. Nothing can derail a person’s life ambitions more than an unfortunate illness. Furthermore, good health to me means the well functioning of the body and mind. I consider the body to be a biomechanical machine. It is one of the most marvelous creations on earth. But it is still a machine, and just like any machine, if it is not maintained regularly it will break down.

I’ve developed this Web site and the Health Power 101 System so that everyone can learn how to take back control over their health and avoid unnecessarily suffering and dying from common, preventable diseases. I like to tell the people who attend my health talks and seminars that “You can ‘catch’ sickness, but you cannot catch good health. Good health must be pursued!” I also like to tell them that although certain diseases may run in your family, “Your ‘genes’ only load the gun but it is your lifestyle that pulls the trigger!”

So I sincerely hope that as you go through this website something that you either read, watch, or interact with will reach your mind, touch soul and/or change your body so that you can be as healthy as God intended for you to be!! Now, let me introduce the site to you…
