I’m absolutely serious when I say this:


Have you ever given deep thought into how freakin’ amazing your body is???

Let’s start with the eleven (11) miraculous organ systems within you. Each one of them is more complex than a supercomputer…

AND… each one is fully automated:

✅ The circulatory system

✅ The lymphatic system

✅ The respiratory system

✅ The integumentary system (skin)

✅ The endocrine system

✅ The gastrointestinal (digestive) system

✅ The urinary (excretory) system

✅ The musculoskeletal system

✅ The nervous system

✅ The reproductive system

✅ The immune system

These are truly amazing systems, some of which we still don’t fully understand.

Each system runs non-stop 24/7 …even while you’re sleeping.


What’s’ even more incredible is that they all work in sync with each other.

If one system is compromised the other systems will compensate in order to keep your body functioning.

👉 Without any effort on your part, your lacerations and wounds heal all by themselves.

👉 Fractured bones, torn ligaments and tendons are like the “comeback kids.” Ready for action!

👉 Drank too much last night? No problem. Your body perceives alcohol as poison and flushes it out of your system as fast as it can (and attempts to clear your foggy brain).

👉 The immune and reproductive systems should really be considered the 8th and 9th wonders of the world!

All of this is happening AUTOMATICALLY with no conscious effort on your part!

What a GIFT!


Warren Buffet is far from a health and fitness guru, but his perspective is right on.

He asks his students this:

“What if I am willing to give you ANY automobile you want… no matter how hard it is to get, no matter how much it costs? The only “catch” is this: It is your ONLY automobile for the rest of your life!”

That’s your body!

The most amazing machine on the planet. But, it’s the ONLY one you get for a lifetime!

Just sit with that piece of solid “clarity” for a moment.


Despite the craziness of our youth: drugs, alcohol, smoking, vaping, etc., as well as dangerous pranks, dares, sports injuries and other shenanigans, we somehow survived with our bodies intact!

And most people were physically active during their youthful days… or at least more so than “the middle ages” (34-50).

Uh-Oh…! Danger!

Then, on some random day in their mid-30’s or so, millions of men and women wake up feeling like crap (often on New Year’s Day).

The feeling is validated by the bathroom mirror because they look like crap, too!

The brave ones actually step on a scale… 😧

“What the hell is happening to me..?”

Yes, after years of:

🚫 misuse and abuse

🚫 sedentary lifestyle

🚫 convenience eating

🚫 dealing with daily stress

🚫 you name it..!

…the body starts to feel and look different.

WAY different!

For most people it ALL comes into focus on a single random day.



Thus, begins a “holy grail” search for a magic solution.

“Surely, there must be a quick fix — just like replacing worn out brakes on a car — or as easy as snaking a clogged drain.”


Wouldn’t it be great if we could just trade-in our bodies like an iPhone upgrade?


If an unhealthy lifestyle continues past the ages of 50, 60 and 70 – well, the “chickens come home to roost” and the body’s ability to compensate begins to decline.

It’s no longer about just looking good.

Beyond accumulated body-fat and muscle atrophy the body is now dealing with issues of balance, flexibility, energy, sleep, etc.

So, once again, the search for a simple “quick fix” solution becomes top-of-mind.


Well, of course, it’s because we all know THIS is the time of year when millions upon millions of people have made their New Year’s Resolutions to finally “Lose the Weight!”

It’s also the time of year when Weight Watchers, NutriSystem and all the other weight-loss hucksters (big and small) will prey upon the uneducated masses with promises, promises and more promises backed by phony research, testimonials and celebrity spokespeople.

And, millions of people will absolutely “fall for it” because they’re desperate.


It’s “Hail Mary” time and they are 100% focused on WEIGHT-LOSS! Period.

This annual craziness has been going on for 100’s of years: HISTORY OF FAD DIETS – FREE DOWNLOAD.


Unfortunately, the single focus on weight-loss affects all the other amazing organ systems involved in bodily functions. Sometimes with horrible consequences, including death.

Remember, these systems all work synergistically and have specific operational requirements. As soon as a person starts to “screw around” with just one of them, they are ALL affected.

✅ The circulatory system

✅ The lymphatic system

✅ The respiratory system

✅ The integumentary system (skin)

✅ The endocrine system

✅ The gastrointestinal (digestive) system

✅ The urinary (excretory) system

✅ The musculoskeletal system

✅ The nervous system

✅ The reproductive system

✅ The immune system

This is exactly why most certified and licensed health professionals advocate for holistic “BALANCE” and POSITIVE LIFESTYLE BEHAVIOR to achieve long-term weight management and overall physical, mental and emotional health.


So, O.K. here’s the bottom line and the point to my rather long rant (sorry):

Regardless of all the issues in the world today, one’s own HEALTH should be the #1 PRIORITY.

Health is indiscriminate.

It doesn’t distinguish between sex, race, ethnicity, religion, social class, political affiliations or beliefs about climate change.

Health is totally reactive. It is what it is… based on how it’s treated.

One should worship his or her own personal miracle of 11 amazing automated systems.

But, instead, most people abuse their bodies like “junkers” in a demolition derby!


So, if you really want to have an impact… maybe even change the world, then think about EMPOWERING your clients with KNOWLEDGE.

Whether you use our materials or obtain credible information from the thousands of relevant sources, your clients will thank you — FOREVER!

During my 35 years in this business, I’ve witnessed the same scenario play out year after year like the movie, “Ground Hog Day.”

People who never learn how their bodies function continually YO-YO up and down on every wacky diet imaginable. It’s an endless hamster wheel.

On the other hand, those who are empowered with credible knowledge set a course.

They embark on a “one-way” journey toward better health and improved lives. And, it affects everyone around them.

YOU, as a health professional, have an incredible amount of POWER.

Perhaps more than you know!

With your knowledge and expertise you can literally CHANGE LIVES!


And, in so doing, indirectly change the world!



Here’s to a healthy and prosperous 2023…—> POWER-UP!
