A FUNCTIONAL GUIDE TO LIVING LONG AND DYING YOUNG
Finally a comprehensive book on mind-body medicine and fitness: why and how it works. Written for Healthcare institutions, fitness companies,trainers and mind-body fitness teachers of all kinds, as well as individuals. Based on the theory of the first book "Intended Evolution", here we recap some of the theory as it pertains to health and fitness and then delve into why and how the uniquely human mind can be harnessed for our own personal "internal medicine".
HEALTHSPAN- Live Long and Die Young- is about living not just a long life, but a life which keeps all the important functions to maintain a healthy life: to maximize our potential to have a long "Health-Span". This book explains the basis of Mind-Body Medicine so as to go way beyond it's current understanding and use. This is truly the "Mind-Body Medicine Bible. Through what could be called "Self-care Healthcare" the reader will learn how our uniquely human brain allows us to control many aspects of what our intelligent internal cells and systems take their cues from: their environments. This means our internal environments affecting that cell or system INCLUDING our perceptions as a person of our external environment, the world around us.. The unique ability of our human mind allows us to affect our internal cells and systems by creating what we call "virtual environments" for them to tune to. We can update and change cell memory and "re-contextualize" it to better fit our modern environment.
The concept of fitness today is typically about a certain "fit" look, as described or defined in popular culture, and we believe does not fully represent the idea of our health, and in fact can work against an individual's health depending on where in ones life they are. This book describes why this is so and how one can take the big view in analyzing what they really want out of a fitness program with some very surprising and counter intuitive results! Our weight loss suggestions for example arose out of a program designed in our Chinese Medicine Clinic for someone predisposed to weight gain, metabolism disorder, and diabetes, a main problem in today's modern society which leads to many other disease states. The recommendations run completely counter to the idea that one has to burn as many calories as possible to build muscle through will-power and motivation. The many modern versions of this theme that have proliferated are often frustrating and hard to keep up with as our age, goals, and lifestyles change. This book shows why most modern fitness trends are simply more versions of a very limited fitness paradigm. This book truly puts forward the next step in the evolution of what it means to "be fit" .
