We are at a crossroads in health care as many of us suffer from hard-to-treat health conditions and multisystem diseases and syndromes that are on the rise. Modern medicine and technology have failed at keeping us healthy and/or improving many conditions like cancer, heart disease, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, autoimmune disease, depression, allergies, and dementia, to name only a few. We have abandoned the way our bodies are designed to stay healthy. In reality, many orthodox and standard treatments disrupt or bodies normal function and promote these very disorders.
The answers to many of your health concerns are literally right in front of you in the way you move, eat, and sleep. Small changes can have a great impact. Five Alive offers these small changes.
The goal of Five Alive is to change the standard. We have the knowledge, and you have the power. A single choice each day can make a profound change in your health.
Five Alive offers a new approach not previously seen. Simple, safe, scientific, and low-cost actions in each of the three areas of moving, eating, and sleeping. The uniqueness of Five Alive is offered by way of synergy, which the recommended actions, interacting with the others creating a compound effect. Five Alive is not a diet plan or an exercise regime. Five Alive can be incorporated into any health and/or fitness program, diet, and/or lifestyle, and can be used by the very young to the most senior populations.
This work has its genesis in the need of those seeking easy-to-follow, safe, and scientific actions to address their concerns about health issues associated with moving, eating, and sleeping/mood.
We have taken twenty-eight years of suggestions, twenty-eight years of research, education, and personal experience and have developed a plan we call Five Alive. We have condensed our knowledge and our expertise and have simplified the complex, confusing, and at times contradictory advice regarding moving, eating, and sleeping (diet, exercise, and mind).
We liken this book to a finished statue. Initially, a large chunk of marble chiseled away over a long period to reveal a simple, beautiful piece of work.
Everyone moves, everyone eats, and everyone sleeps. How well you do each of these will determine how healthy you are.
