Introduction

With every passing generation, there are more and more insights and scientific breakthroughs that promise longer, healthier lives. This is heartening because most people imagine getting older in good health with the opportunity for enjoying retirement and spending more time with friends and family, away from the hustle of a busy life. Yet, if we believe the current statistics on health, even in the light of cutting-edge discoveries, many of us are going to fall prey to some form of degenerative condition such as arthritis, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and cancer, to name a few. Being diagnosed with any of these conditions can radically change lifestyles and spoil our retirement plans.

Unfortunately, many will not have to wait until an advanced age to experience some of these challenges. They may affect us while we are quite young and create disturbing obstacles in all aspects of life.

Roberta, my wife of 40 years and business partner, is an example of this. In 1998 she was diagnosed with breast cancer, and we were both in shock. I am an acupuncturist and a Doctor in Human Development. Roberta counsels people and is an effective life coach. We both experienced excellent health and a strong spiritual practice throughout our lives. When the diagnosis occurred, we had been in practice for more than 20 years, and I thought we knew a great deal about health and well being. We had created a comprehensive system of healing based on the premise that a healthy mind lined up with a spiritual perspective produces and maintains a healthy body.

Our oversight was that we disregarded the negative impact that disturbances in the environment and certain genetic predispositions can have on both cells and the most basic physiological functions.

Thank God Roberta has enjoyed great health for the past several years and leads a very active, creative life. Still, her diagnosis was a rude awakening. It led me to extensive research into what constitutes a healthy physical body, and how we can ensure and maintain good health. The exploration that I embarked upon led to a range of discoveries that I am sharing with you in this book.
