  4. 4. The Future of Healthcare "This is the ultimate guide to understanding the future of healthcare. These strategies have literally transformed my health and life." - Steve Linder, Founder of SRI Training This document may be the beginning of learning how to maximize your life experience and live the life of your dreams. Through applying what is written throughout this book, you could:  Increase your ability to focus and perform  Increase your energy, peace and vitality  Begin addressing major underlying causes of disease  Learn top fat loss strategies  Learn major causes of cancer, heart disease and diabetes  Learn major underlying causes of ADHD, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis , ALS and more  Understand the 21st century disease epidemic and what to do about it  Maximize sexual performance and sensations  Learn the 4 steps that anyone needs to take to transform their health If we don’t have our health, we have nothing. What good is your money without health? What good are you to your business, mission or family if you don’t have your health? Poor health doesn’t just bring diseases and disorders. It steals quality experiences away from you, your family, friends, and grandchildren. What is possible if you had optimal health? Would you be more confident and essentially be more attractive? Could you make more money? Would your relationships be maximized? Could you experience more joy and have more peace? Do you realize that by implementing certain health strategies you might be able to overcome diseases that you are genetically susceptible to? What other levels of health could you have that you’re not even aware exist? Beyond “feeling okay” could you feel more energy and vitality? Could you optimize nervous system and immune function? Could you experience life like you’ve never experienced it before? © 2011 Designer Health Centers Inc. All Rights Reserved. www.designerhealthcenters.com
  5. 5. The evident answer is that true health can bring all of these things and more. Health optimization is what I teach and it’s what I’ve dedicated my life to. I want to show you how to have increased levels of energy and vitality. I want to show you major strategies to overcome and prevent disease. I want to show you what the 3 major interferences are that can block healing in your body. I want to show you simple health strategies to implement into your everyday life. I want to show the successful entrepreneur, busy executive, and the moms that have too much to do how to easily integrate high-energy health strategies into their lives. But first we must ask these fundamental questions. What is health? What interferes with it? Do I have disease developing silently in by body right now? What model of health care makes sense to live in? Just before we get into this report, I would like to have the opportunity to tell you a little bit about myself and why I have authority to teach in this arena. At a relatively young age I was diagnosed with ADHD and Dyslexia. I couldn’t focus in class, and had to take my tests in special needs in order to have enough time to finish. Doctors prescribed several different types of medications, but side effects only made matters worse. Back at home my mom was on antidepressants and my dad was on high blood pressure medications and at high risk of a heart attack. Both of my parents were several pounds overweight. We were a happy family but didn’t know the potential that existed for our health and our lives. The traditional medical model wasn’t helping us reclaim our health. In fact, it was worsening our conditions. Eventually, my mother took me to a chiropractor and a naturopath after exhausting our options with the traditional medical community. The chiropractor and naturopath literally transformed my life forever and introduced me to learning advanced health strategies. Within a matter of a few months I was out of special needs, my acne cleared up and my ability to focus sky rocketed. I overcame ADHD and Dyslexia and started to realize that I wasn’t “broken”, but I had many gifts, talents and abilities. I started to get “A”’s in classes and the oddly enough I was even the first one to finish many of the tests! The health strategies introduced from the chiropractor and naturopath, along with the improved grades that I was earning, made such a massive impact in my life that I decided to become a doctor with a focus on understanding © 2011 Designer Health Centers Inc.

  6. 6. underlying causes of disease. Upon graduating from high school I went to the most prestigious health and wellness university in the world- Life University. While in university I learned from the top health experts from Harvard and Stanford that often visited the school for seminars and lectures. I received advanced certifications in 21st century intracellular detoxification and bionutrition, nervous system balancing and spinal correction and learned things that I could have never imagined. I even received an international academic scholarship! After I learned these things I created a system. The first to benefit were my parents. My mom overcame depression and my dad overcame major risk factors for heart disease. They are both now healthier than ever and have been medication free for years. My parents are in the picture above on the cover of a local magazine, Mature Living. The man in the picture is the chiropractor that I recommended for them while I was in school. I graduated with honors from Life University with a doctorate in Chiropractic. After graduating I went on to work for one of the largest health centers in the world in Orlando, Florida. At the health center, I built an internationally recognized Bio-Nutrition and Detoxification Program that impacted thousands of patients each week. I was able to create systems from what I learned from the top health experts in the world to help virtually anybody in any situation. If you have a pulse and you’re still breathing then you have the potential to heal.

  7. 7. healing powers. The result is optimal health. Because of the success of the program I had the opportunity to educate doctors all over America on how to implement true health strategies into their practice. I recently redirected my focus to invest 100% of my time on teaching this information to you. Currently I’m traveling the world speaking internationally, writing books, creating wellness programs and launching an online health center that will transform the health of people worldwide. I am already working with the Ministry of Health in Saudi Arabia and major health organizations in North America and Europe. This is the beginning of a health revolution! Reality I am writing this book with great emotion as I learned of another person close to me whose mother just passed away from cancer. As a doctor, people have often shared personal stories of loved ones that have lost the battle to some sickness or disease. We all hear the statistics, but sometimes it doesn’t truly hit home until someone close to us dies. Here are the staggering statistics: • 1 in 3 women will develop cancer in their life time1 • 1 in 2 men will do the same1 • Cancer is claiming 1 in 3 lives1 • More than 1 in 2 people will develop one or more forms of cardiovascular disease2 • 1 in 2 people will die from cardiovascular disease • 1 in 3 people will develop diabetes within the years to come3 • Stroke is the second leading cause of death worldwide. A stroke typically affects your life forever if you survive and is caused by the same underlying factors that trigger heart disease (i.e. stroke = "heart attack" of the brain) 4 In 2010, the United States spent 12% GDP or $2.7 trillion on disease care. In light of this fact, are we any healthier since the year 2000? The statistics don't lie: • 1 in 10,000 children were diagnosed with Autism ten years ago… in 2010 1 in 110 © 2011 Designer Health Centers Inc. All Rights Reserved. www.designerhealthcenters.com
  8. 8. children in the U.S. were diagnosed5 • In the UK it’s even worse with numbers as high as 1 in 58 children diagnosed with Autism6 • ADHD, Dyslexia, Tourette syndrome and OCD are increasing at the same rate7 • 1 in 6 five or six-year-olds will be diagnosed with some type of neurological disorder that affects the ability to learn and socially interact8 • Upon autopsy of children who had passed away in car accidents examiners found up to 90% occlusion of their arteries. This means that those children were developing heart disease under the age of 10!9 • 1 in 2 children born after the year 2002 will develop diabetes10 Between the years of 1975-200511: • Thyroid cancer has increased by 116% • Testicular cancer has increased by 60% • Acute Childhood leukemia has increased by 82% • Non-Hodgkin's lymphocytic leukemia has increased by 67% • Childhood brain cancer has increased by 39% • Post-menopausal breast cancer has increased by 22% And unfortunately the list goes on. With the multi-trillion dollar “healthcare” industry focused on treating the effects or symptoms of disease, the numbers will continue to skyrocket. Why hasn’t the healthcare industry changed its approach? One reason could be that massive residual income streams are created from a positive feedback loop of sickness and disease as more people are focused on treating symptoms instead of seeking to understand the root cause. This creates artificial health in that people assume that they are healthy because they don’t have any perceived symptoms. While medications may be good in emergency situations, most of the time they elicit fake results. This is why the motto at Designer Health Centers is “True Health. Real Results.” A perfect example of understanding the concept of artificial health points to heart attacks. In the medical community, high cholesterol is a “key indicator” of a person’s risk for heart © 2011 Designer Health Centers Inc. All Rights Reserved. www.designerhealthcenters.com
  9. 9. disease. Most health professionals monitor cholesterol and prescribe cholesterol lowering medications in an attempt to reduce the risk of heart attack. Isn’t it surprising then, that up to 50% of people that have had heart attacks had low cholesterol not high?12 Propaganda via non-for-profit organizations that are funded by pharmaceutical companies continues to pull at the emotional heartstrings of the western world. They do this through painting a completely different picture of reality by telling people that “the numbers are going down” and “we’re winning the war on (insert disease).” They persuade people to give more money to fund “symptom research” versus “prevention” and “cause” research perpetuating this positive feedback loop. The question is, who’s going to stand in the gap? Your children and grandchildren are counting on us. Someone has to make a difference and that’s why there needs to be a health revolution. By now you probably understand that we are living in a time unlike any other in the history of mankind. There is more disease than we have ever seen and this is truly the new epidemic. But there has to be a solution. You deserve to know what the research is saying about the cause of many 21st century health problems and what can be done about the conditions that are plaguing society today. But, first we need to understand how we have found ourselves in this situation in the first place. Models of Health “Problems cannot be solved by the same level of thinking that created them.” - Albert Einstein First we must address the fundamental issues of the two models of health care. There is nothing more devastating than having a false belief and receiving false information about the source of health and illness. False beliefs about the source of illness and health have caused more death and suffering than all human wars combined. There is nothing more important than learning the truth about the origin of health and disease. © 2011 Designer Health Centers Inc. All Rights Reserved. www.designerhealthcenters.com
  10. 10. There are two models of health care. There is the Models of Healthcare reactive Traditional Medical Model (TMM) and the proactive New Health Model (NHM). The TMM focuses on mechanistically treating symptoms and disease with two primary tools: drugs and surgery. One word that describes the TMM is “effect” as most health professionals are treating the effect of the cause of disease. Treating the effects of problems never creates a solution. Symptoms are your body’s “cry” for help. They are signals that you are sick and need to make changes. What happens if you silence the smoke alarm over your bed at night? Does that get rid of the fire in the basement? The reality is that focusing on treating symptoms creates more sick people. To exemplify the flaws in this type of thinking consider a recent study in The New England Journal of Medicine. In 18,000 premenopausal breast cancer patients (breast cancer is one of the worst types of cancer), investigators found that treating the bone reduced the recurrence of cancer by 35%.13 In this study treating the bones affected the breast. This study provides sound evidence that when you change the soil the seed doesn’t grow as well. If you change the system you can have a marked affect on cancer. We need to start looking at disease prevention and treatment holistically. The very foundation of the TMM is flawed and sooner than later will cave in. The NHM focuses holistically on prevention, behavioral change and addressing the causes of disease formation. One word that describes the NHM is “cause” as we are focusing on reducing and removing the interferences within body The Traditional Medical Model (TMM) overview:  Focuses on the effect (symptoms) - $$$$$  Tools are drugs and surgery  Enforce the belief that healing comes from a pill, lotion or potion  Research focuses on effect and temporary relief  Don’t question the doctor or the system  Relies on insurance for “health care” - $$$$$  Wait to get sick before taking control of your health  All chronic disease is genetic The New Health Model (NHM) overview:  Focuses on the cause and health creation - $  Tools are lifestyle and behavioral change and detoxification  Healing comes from within  Rely on evidenced based strategies that get to the root cause  Empower yourself through asking questions and education  Relies on insurance for emergencies and focuses on true prevention - $  Stop disease from forming in the first place through behavioral change  Chronic diseases are lifestyle and environmentally induced (genes <10%) © 2011 Designer Health Centers Inc.

  11. 11. systems that enable disease formation and decrease quality of life. Assume your body is a can and disease is a fly. When does the fly come around? When the can is full of garbage! Getting rid of the flies still doesn’t get rid of the garbage. Sooner than later the flies will return. We need to remove the garbage and address the cause. And unlike the TMM where the typical approach is “one size fits all”, the NHM creates a health program customized to each individual. Doctors such as Chiropractors, Medical Doctors and Naturopaths have operated under the umbrella of both the TMM and the NHM. Unfortunately, over 95% of doctors focus on symptomatic care, whether it’s a Chiropractor adjusting for “pain removal”, or a medical doctor or naturopath giving a medication or supplement to treat symptoms. Many of these physicians are very bright and it’s not their fault for practicing this way, as their education has wholly focused on effect. NHM doctors still address the symptoms within the context of addressing the cause, with the goal of removing symptoms permanently. Designer Health Centers is the gateway to living in the NHM. This is the future of healthcare, and you can have this today. “The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his or her patients in the care of the human frame, in a proper diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.”—Thomas A. Edison What Is The Underlying Cause? So, what are some of the major underlying causes of disease today? What is the research saying about this and why aren’t we changing our approach? According to some of the top research institutes in the world such as Harvard, University of Chicago, University of Washington and many others there is strong evidence that inflammation is a major underlying cause of disease. There have been over 100,000 research articles published on inflammation in the last 5 years. Look at what some of the top researchers have done in regard to this research:  Walter Willet, M.D., department head of nutrition at Harvard Medical School and author of Eat, Drink and Be Healthy: The Harvard Medical School Guide to Healthy Eating, has created a diet that focuses on decreasing inflammation (when you sign up at © 2011 Designer Health Centers Inc. All Rights Reserved. www.designerhealthcenters.com
  12. 12. www.designerhealthcenters.com you can get the top 21st Century anti-inflammatory nutrition and lifestyle plan for free).  Martin L. Pall, PhD., Professor of Biochemistry and Medical Sciences at Washington State University, recently wrote a scientific review entitled “Explaining Unexplained Illnesses” which strongly links inflammation to many of the today’s diseases and chronic conditions.  Dr. Russell Tracy, Professor of Pathology and Biochemistry at the University of Vermont Collage of Medicine says, “Inflammatory factors predict virtually all bad outcomes in humans.”  Dr. Berry Sears, Former Research Scientist at Boston University School of Medicine and MIT says, “Inflammation is the underlying cause of disease”. The list goes on and on. In Discover: The New Science of Health, the opinions of top researchers from around the world are summarized below: “Inflammation seems to underlie not just senescence (wrinkling, degeneration and deterioration with age) but all chronic illness[es] that often come along with it: diabetes, atherosclerosis, Alzheimer’s and other neurological conditions, heart disease, cognitive function decline, premature aging, and even cancer…14 Inflammation of the brain and nerve cells has been linked to autism, ADHD and many other childhood learning Note to the Ladies Wrinkling of the skin is caused by inflammation both inside and outside of the cells of the body. To optimize the look, feel and elasticity of the skin, one must remove the very things that cause the skin to age. One must address the underlying causes of inflammation to optimize skin health. To maximize the look and vitality of your skin follow the 4 essential steps at the bottom of the report after learning what causes inflammation. disabilities.15,16 Chronic inflammation is also one of the major underlying causes of neurological conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease. 17,18,19 If inflammation has been so strongly linked to all of these diseases and disorders of the 21st century, we have to ask the next logical question: what causes inflammation? Before we address this question, it is essential to understand the definition of health. © 2011 Designer Health Centers Inc. All Rights Reserved. www.designerhealthcenters.com
  13. 13. Define Health Then Will You? Sadly, most people think they are healthy because they “feel” healthy. However, many are numb to the full life experiences that exist for them in heightened levels of energy and vitality that exist when they apply advanced health strategies and prevent disease. If true health is one of your major goals then wouldn’t it be a good idea to know what the definition of health is? Understanding the definition of health gives us a goal in which to aim. Why travel somewhere without knowing what the destination is? Unfortunately, if you were to ask most physicians they wouldn’t have a clear answer for you. Many would say that health is the absence of disease. Imagine if your goal is to fly from London to New York and you asked your pilot if they knew where the destination was and they said, “It’s not London.” Would it be good to let that individual “guide” you to New York? Of course not! And yet Interesting Fact Jim Fixx (1932-1984) is the man that made popularized the sport of running. He was a vegetarian and an organic food advocate. He dropped dead of a heart attack at age of 52 due to inflammation. This is clear evidence that simply eating well and exercising is not enough. most doctors and individuals would define health as “the absence of disease” or in other words, “feeling good”. This is an extremely dangerous approach to health care. Big Pharma would define health as, “the absence of symptoms by using our drugs”. So the question is, what is the definition of health? According to the World Health Organization the definition of health is as follows: Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. Get this. Health is an innate, natural phenomenon. Being healthy is normal, it is what you are genetically programmed to express! Health is holistic. It’s not just exercising or eating the right foods. I’ve worked with hundreds of patients that were vegetarians eating organic © 2011 Designer Health Centers Inc.

He’s been a vegetarian for 40 years eating nothing but raw veggies and fruit, and yet he still developed a serious form of cancer. The medical community often links diseases like cancer to “bad genetics.” You’ll soon find out that your genes do not play the biggest role in disease formation at all. If true health is our destination, how do we get there? And how do we remove the obstacles or interferences that make it difficult to optimize health? There are 12 major components of your life that need to be addressed to maximize your health. I address these components in the Designer Health Centers Healthy Lifestyle Design Program. It’s far too comprehensive and advanced to talk about in this document, so for now let’s focus on what the major interferences are. What Causes Inflammation? Do you want to understand the most advanced fat-loss strategies, and how to look and feel your best? Then this next section is for you. All illness is based on adaptation to stressors from a pathological environment and inflammation is caused by 3 major components. The first is Toxicities, the second is Deficiencies and the third is our Psychology. Toxicities cause inflammation and are associated with almost all disease states known to man, including genetic disease. Toxicities are due to four major components: 1. The environment What Causes Inflammation 2. Heavy Metals 3. Bio-toxins 4. Physical Trauma 1. 2. 3. Toxicities Deficiencies Psychology Nutrient deficiencies cause inflammation and are associated with every disease state known to man. Deficiencies can be broken down into 4 major categories as well. These deficiencies are as follows: © 2011 Designer Health Centers Inc. All Rights Reserved. www.designerhealthcenters.com
  15. 15. 1. Nerve supply 2. Oxygen 3. Water 4. MicroNutrients: a. Antioxidants e. Electrolytes b. Vitamins f. c. Minerals g. Fatty Acids d. Amino Acids h. Metabolites Carbohydrates Our psychology affects our view of reality and the way we interpret the world. It dictates how emotional we are, the quality of relationships we have and it has a massive impact on our physical health. Our psychology is created through the synthesis or lack of synthesis of these following five categories: 1. Spiritual Life 2. Social Influences 3. Upbringing 4. Culture 5. Past Experiences With that being said, the 3 essentials of the New Health Model (NHM) are as follows: 1. Create Purity (through removing toxicities) 2. Optimize Nutrients (through removing deficiencies) 3. Maximize Relationships (through mastering your psychology) Let’s briefly break these down shall we? © 2011 Designer Health Centers Inc. All Rights Reserved. www.designerhealthcenters.com
  16. 16. Create Purity Pre-frame: These truths can be very tough to read through. In the forefront I want you to know there are solutions for addressing each toxicity as addressed below. Please don’t turn into a hypochondriac.  The first essential of the NHM is to create purity. Why should this be one of our goals? The reality is that toxicity causes inflammation, which leads to disease. So what are these toxins and what can we do about them? According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), since WWII approximately 80,000 chemicals have been introduced into the market place. Not one was tested for toxicology before 1976.20 Less then 10% of these chemicals have been at least partially evaluated for safety. None have been properly studied for their effects on the human immune, nervous, endocrine and reproductive systems.21These chemicals are affecting every area of our lives. In fact, recently published studies are showing that one third of the population has multiple chemical sensitivities.22 Additionally, according to the National Cancer Institute 75% of all cancers are linked to chemical exposures in the environment. The problem is that these chemicals don’t just leave our body, they bio-accumulate or stockpile inside wreaking havoc on bodily systems over time. Chemical toxicity has become so pervasive that studies have shown that toxins are actually bio-accumulating within a mother’s womb and are transferred to unborn fetuses. To further shed light on this fact, The Environmental Working Group found 232 toxins and chemicals in the umbilical cord of 10 newborn babies. Many of these chemicals cause cancer, cognitive and behavioral impairments, endocrine system disruptions, reproductive and cardiovascular system abnormalities, diabetes, asthma and obesity.23 So where do we get these toxins from anyway? Plastic Bisphenol A or BPA and phthalates are found in plastics that touch our food and water. These substances mimic hormones that cause major endocrine problems especially in children. BPA is also found in almost every canned food tested by consumer reports.24 These toxins are © 2011 Designer Health Centers Inc. All Rights Reserved. www.designerhealthcenters.com
  17. 17. found in personal care products, cosmetics, children’s toys and water pipes. Plastics cause inflammation and hormone dysregulation and they are wreaking havoc on our bodies. Using glass containers is best for storing food and drinking water. Investing in glass storage containers such as Pyrex or mason jars will help decrease your exposure to plastics and the harmful chemicals that they contain. Personal Care Products Many ingredients in our “natural” and conventional personal care products are toxic and cause inflammation. A recent study of U.K. women found that women wear on average 515 chemicals from their cosmetics and personal care products daily.25 Most of our personal care products have over 125 man-made ingredients that are suspected of carcinogenic activity.26 Several substances found in these products, such as toluene are already known carcinogens.27 These chemicals bio-accumulate in the organs and can cause kidney damage, liver abnormalities, skin cell growth inhibition, damaged cell membranes, rashes, respiratory damage, along with immune and nervous system depression.28 Home Toxins off gas from our mattresses, computers, T.V.s, flooring and many other areas of our homes. Flame-retardants found in mattresses, computers, pillows, vehicles, appliances and T.V.s are harmful and can be detected in almost anyone that lives in the western world. These toxins also bio-accumulate in our bodies and in women they can be transferred to babies in breast milk.29 They cause health problems that disrupt hormones, neurology, and the liver. 30 “The air in our enclosed homes is two to five times more polluted than outside from the off gassing of toxic beauty products, cleaners, atomizers, deodorants, new carpets & paints (and cars), pesticides and herbicides... that are making us sick. For example, despite mainly eating organic for the last 16 years, along with living in the mountains, I still had elevated cancer cells.” - Dr. Sanjay Gupta M.D., Surgeon General to President Obama © 2011 Designer Health Centers Inc.

  18. 18. Heavy Metals Heavy metals cause high levels of inflammation. We get mercury from amalgam fillings, fish, vaccinations and high fructose corn syrup.31 According to Professor Boyd Haley Ph.D. and the former department head of Biochemistry at the University of Kentucky, mercury is the second most toxic substance on earth. Mercury causes death to nerve cells found in the brain and throughout the body.32 There are many diseases and debilitating health conditions that heavy metals have been strongly correlated to. A few are listed below: 1. Chronic Fatigue 6. Leaky Gut Syndrome 2. Fibromyalgia 7. Insomnia 3. Alzheimer’s 8. Multiple Sclerosis 4. Arthritis 9. Infertility 5. Learning Disabilities 10. ALS Studies have also shown that thimerosal, a mercury preservative found in vaccines, is tightly linked to the development of autism.33 Metals toxicity also leads to nutrient deficiencies.34 For example, if you have mercury toxicity not only does it cause immune suppression, autoimmune disorders, and immune deregulation, but it also Fat-loss Tip! causes glutathione, zinc, selenium and vitamin E deficiencies.35 As people age their bones release stored lead, another harmful metal, leading to heart disease, high blood pressure and stroke.36 That means the exposures you could have had when you were a child may not seriously affect you until after the age of 50. 37 Heavy metals such as mercury also bioaccumulate in the fetus38 and many vaccines still The most advanced fat loss strategies are found in addressing toxins that block and damage the hypothalamus and thyroid from functioning properly. Toxins such as heavy metals block receptor sites on these glands and it can cause weight-loss resistance. Leptin, which is the hormone that tells your body to burn fat, can’t be “heard” by the hypothalamus because of inflammation from these toxins. This leads to weight-loss resistance. This is why many people can eat healthy and exercise and yet they still can’t lose weight! contain toxic levels of mercury, aluminum and formaldehyde. One vaccination given to a six-pound new born is the equivalent of giving an adult that weighs 180-pounds 30 vaccinations in the same day!39 © 2011 Designer Health Centers Inc.

  19. 19. When heavy metals combine in the body it creates a synergistic toxic and damaging effect. In one study investigators gave hundreds of rats a concentration of mercury designed to kill less than 1% of the rats. They did the same for lead. One would assume that adding the lead and mercury in concentrations of 1% plus 1% would equal 2% dead rats, correct? This is not the case with heavy metals. When you combined the individual concentrations of lead and mercury to kill 1% of rats together, it killed 100% of the rats!40 Similar results have been recorded in humans in Australia.41 Furthermore, most people in this world have dangerous exposures to these toxins that stockpile inside of the body. This is a primary reason why we test for over 20 toxic metals at Designer Health Centers. Biotoxins Biotoxins are living toxins within your body. Some invade the body while others are “opportunistic” (which means, given the right environment they will grow out of control). There are thousands of forms of biotoxins such as fungus, mold and parasites. These bio-toxins, when fed in the body (processed sugars are the primary food) give off potent toxins and neurotoxins called “mycotoxins”. Mycotoxins like cyclosporine, lactic acid, and acetaldehyde are strongly linked to cancer, high blood pressure, and major immune suppression.42 Major Symptoms of Bio-Toxicity42        Hulda Clark, Ph.D., N.D., and author of The Cure for All Disease says, “You must cleanse your body and make your body as unlivable for them as possible.

I address the other 2 essentials in the Designer Health Centers Healthy Lifestyle Design Program. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), more than 20 million American workers are affected by toxic fungi related to “sick-building syndrome”. One out of every 6 children in America are exposed daily to related fungal toxins. These numbers don’t even reflect the reality of what is going on.43 Twenty-four percent of the population is genetically susceptible to mold as proven by HLA genotype tests. “If you don’t clean your house all kinds of small ‘guests’ come out of nowhere to take up residence with you. Similarly, when we create an unhealthy internal terrain it paves the way for unwanted, toxic guests. - Robert O. Young PhD., D.Sc. Dr. Robert O. Young goes to the extent to say that cancer is in fact caused by bio-toxins within the body. Bio-toxins release extreme levels of inflammatory agents. Most of us have created the perfect terrain for these bio-toxic, unwanted guests. It’s time that we kick these guests out! This is such a big deal that in the Healthy Lifestyle Design Program, which focuses on behavioral change and detoxification, we devote one full month to implementing the best strategies for cleansing and removing bio-toxins. These techniques are designed to be used periodically throughout the rest of your life. Creating Purity: Summary Toxins are everywhere. There are also toxins in our city water including chemicals such as fluoride, chlorine and pharmaceuticals.44 Our carpets off-gas formaldehyde, benzene, toluene and xylene, which are known to cause cancer, neurological damage, and reproductive and brain Interesting Fact Toxic exposures from heavy metals, bio-toxins and other environmental toxins all lead to weight-loss resistance and an inability to gain lean body tissue. © 2011 Designer Health Centers Inc.

  21. 21. development problems.45 Other sources of many of these toxic chemicals are pesticides, insecticides, herbicides, paint, cleaning products and insulation. 46,47 We haven’t even discussed the disease-causing chemicals found in the air. Due to toxins, another epidemic, called weight-loss resistance is on the rise. For many people, no matter what they eat or how much they exercise, they still can’t seem to lose weight.48 Toxicity leads to a chronic release of stress hormones, which your genes have no defense over. We are simply not built to adapt to elevated levels of inflammatory hormones from our poor lifestyle choices and toxic exposures. This is why we need to change our lifestyle and implement customized and advanced detoxification strategies. This leads us into one of the last major hurdles to address. What about our genes? Don’t they dictate every disease that we have? What is the Genetics Role in the 21st Century Disease Epidemic? Organizations and pharmaceutical companies within the TMM spend billions of advertising dollars perpetuating a lie that most, if not all chronic illness stems from bad luck or faulty genes. Haven’t you heard, “The reason why I have cancer is because it’s in my genes” as if our genes are conspiring against mankind to take us out. Even beyond cancer, TMM contends that diabetes, heart disease, obesity and depression are all mostly if not wholly genetically induced. As individuals hold on to these false beliefs they enter into a state of victimization believing that they have no power or responsibility in terms of their health and that the only options are drugs and surgery. Why not eat those deep fried donuts? You’re going to die of cancer eventually anyway. Why not “live it up” in the mean time? This type of thinking not only falsely absolves each person from taking control of their health, but it creates a false sense of security as individuals rely on prescription drugs, insurance companies and “healthcare system” to bail them out. All the while, money is flooding into the healthcare industry as prescriptions, treatments, surgeries and procedures increase rapidly to deal with an increasingly ill population. © 2011 Designer Health Centers Inc.

  22. 22. “Epigenetic changes represent a biological response to an environmental stressor that can be inherited through many generations via epigenetic marks. But if you remove the environmental pressure ‐ the epigenetic marks will eventually fade and the DNA code ‐ over time ‐ begin to revert to its original programming.” 49 --John Cloud, Why Your Genes Aren’t Your Destiny Chronic illness and the symptoms of chronic illness are not internal errors by your genes. Rather, they are states of physiological adaptation caused by errors in lifestyle choices and/or exposure to environmental stressors. As mentioned before, we are innately and genetically programmed to strive for health and balance. This is what defines life. Scientists from the Cytokine Research Laboratory and the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center note the following in regard to chronic diseases, including cancers: “…studies with identical twins have suggested that genes are not the source of most chronic illnesses. For instance, the concordance between identical twins for breast cancer was found to be only 20%. Instead of our genes, our lifestyle and environment account for 90–95% of our most chronic illnesses…Only 5–10% of all cancer cases can be attributed to genetic defects, whereas the remaining 90– 95% have their roots in the environment and lifestyle.” 50 So what has changed over the last 20 years? Is it our genes or our lifestyle choices and thus the expression of our genes? Have drugs and surgery appropriately removed toxins and restored sufficient nutrients? What is the only logical and scientific solution to this 21st century disease epidemic--more drugs and surgery or a healthier lifestyle? The answers are self-evident. As discussed over the last few pages, toxins play a leading role in the formation of an environment that creates disease and so do nutrient deficiencies. This brings us to the second essential of the New Health Model, optimizing nutrients. Optimizing Nutrients We live in a world where the soil is becoming more and more depleted of essential vitamins, minerals and micronutrients each year that passes. This isn’t just true of conventional foods, this is sadly true of organic foods as well.51 For example, if you have a salad made up of mixed greens, peppers, onions, tomatoes, olive oil and other veggies, it has 63% fewer nutrients than © 2011 Designer Health Centers Inc. All Rights Reserved. www.designerhealthcenters.com
  23. 23. the same salad made 50 years ago. Additionally, a salad made today would contain residues of pesticides and nitrates.52 According to the Royal Society of Chemistry in the UK, the food we eat today has lost valuable nutrient properties that are important for optimal cellular function. Nutrient depletion has been recorded for the following substances: 76% depletion in copper, 49% sodium, 46% calcium, 27% iron and 16% potassium. That report was released in 1991.53 You can only imagine how much worse it would be 20 years later. One out of three childhood deaths in this world are due to micronutrient deficiencies.54 Almost 100% of premenopausal women in the U.S. are deficient in folate. Over 85% are deficient in vitamin C, more than 50% are deficient in Vitamin E and more and more are deficient in B vitamins along with many other micronutrients.55 What about people that supplement? More than 40% of people that supplement rigorously were still found deficient in essential micronutrients.56 Anyone taking medications or has taken medications will most likely have essential nutrient deficiencies that can ironically lead to disease. For instance, if you take a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) such as Asprin™ or Acetaminophen, you can deplete your levels of the most important master anti-oxidant in the body called glutathione.57 58 Heavy Metals toxicity also depletes glutathione levels,59 so it’s no surprise that over 80% of the population has glutathione depletion.60 Low glutathione levels are strongly correlated to these diseases  Alzheimer’s Disease61  Stroke69  Autism62  HIV70  Cancer 63  Liver and Kidney Dysfunction71  Chronic Fatigue Syndrome64  Lung Disorders (IPF, Asthma,  Crohn’s Disease65  Cystic Fibrosis66  Wrinkling and Aging73  Diabetes67  Osteoporosis74  Heart Disease68  Parkinson’s Disease75  Alcoholism76 COPD)72 © 2011 Designer Health Centers Inc. All Rights Reserved. www.designerhealthcenters.com
  24. 24. There is no anti-oxidant on earth that has a higher anti-oxidant score (ORAC score) than glutathione. 77 For instance, blueberries have an ORAC score of 3000, dark chocolate has an ORAC score of 13,000 and Acai berries a score of 18,000. Supplements that detox the body and raise glutathione have ORAC scores as high as 192,000! 78 Glutathione slows the aging process and reduces inflammation that leads to most all diseases.79 It also prevents neurological diseases,80 detoxes the body from carcinogens and the intracellular environment,81, 82 and increases athletic performance. 83 It also prevents cancer, heart disease and diabetes from forming in the first place. 84 85 One of the world’s leaders in neurotoxicity, Dr. Dan Pompa, D.C. says, “High levels of glutathione is the reason why you don’t develop cancer, heart disease and diabetes.” Glutathione is the body’s master antioxidant that all other anti-oxidants depend on in order to function properly.86 Note that every micronutrient is essential for you to reach optimal health. I could write a 400 page book on vitamin D, another book on vitamin E, another on healthy fats, etc. All are essential, like your arms and legs are essential, but glutathione is like the “brain” of micronutrients. Toxicity, especially heavy metals toxicity doesn’t just deplete the body of glutathione but also other essential micronutrients. For instance, lead toxicity inhibits the formation of red blood cells in the bones and can cause impaired vitamin D metabolism and selenium deficiencies.87 That is why it’s essential to look at your body’s toxicity levels and nutrient deficiencies. At Designer Health Centers we send out labs to health participants all over the world. The MicroNutrient Test is an essential test that measures the biochemical function of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants including glutathione, providing a powerful clinical assessment tool to customize your nutrition. “Because suboptimal nutrient status is associated with many chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease, cancer and osteoporosis, it is important for physicians to identify patients with poor nutrition and deficiencies.” - Journal of American Medical Association, June 2002 © 2011 Designer Health Centers Inc. All Rights Reserved. www.designerhealthcenters.com
  25. 25. Deficiencies are caused by the lack of nutrients in our diet, taking medications and exposing ourselves to other toxicities. Remember, the major deficiencies that lead to inflammation and disease inhibit one or more of the following: 1. Nerve supply 2. Oxygen 3. Water 4. MicroNutrients: a. Antioxidants e. Electrolytes b. Vitamins f. c. Minerals g. Fatty Acids d. Amino Acids h. Metabolite Carbohydrates You can see that there are many factors that contribute to maximized health and addressing the root cause of health problems. I want to disclose something that most people never get the privilege of knowing--and that is the impact that nerve supply deficiencies have on your health. Nerve Supply Deficiencies Physical trauma to your nervous system is toxic to your body because your nervous system controls every function in the body. For your heart to beat, your lungs to breath or for a tumor to heal, the healing and regulating power flows from your brain down your spinal cord to all 75 trillion cells and 11 organ systems in your body. Your nervous system orchestrates the synergistic electrical symphony of all the trillions of messages that are communicated every second to keep you alive. If the nerve going to your heart is clipped, your heart dies and you die. Because your brain and spinal cord are the most important organs in the body, they are fully encased in bone known as your scull and spinal column. Your spinal column needs to be in proper alignment for your nervous system to function at 100%. To have proper alignment you need 3 natural flowing curves. If your spine shifts out of proper position it doesn’t “clip” the nerve but it puts damaging pressure on it and over time it © 2011 Designer Health Centers Inc.

  26. 26. can cause disease. Nobel Prize recipient and nuero-surgeon, Dr. A. Breig said, “A loss of cervical curve stretches the spinal cord 5-7 cm and causes disease.” If you have a loss of cervical curve, and most people do, then you most likely hold your head a bit in front of your body. This is known as forward head posture. For every inch of forward head posture, it can increase the weight of the head on the spine by an additional 10 pounds.88 Most people in industrialized nations have major misalignments of the spine. I’ve personally taken thousands of x-rays. Other then my x-ray and a few of my doctor friend’s xrays, which are near perfect clinically, I see straight curves or reverse curves in the neck region of most patients which is pathological. In conclusion, there are both chemical interferences and physical interferences that are toxic to your health. But how does your spine shift out of proper position? Physical interferences from spinal misalignments are due to micro traumas such as sitting in front of a computer or desk all day, and from macro traumas such as car accidents, falls, or collisions. This creates a misaligned skeletal and nervous system structure that over time leads to disease.89 90 When your spine is out of its proper biomechanical position the communication from brain to body decreases. Optimal oxygen levels to your body are decreased because your vital capacity, which is the amount of oxygen that fills your lungs, is dramatically reduced. Over time, spinal misalignment can cause your nerves to malfunction and even die. This severely inhibits, and will eventually prevent, communication from the brain to vital organs. This is analogous to a hose watering a garden. If there is a kink in the hose (like poor structure and posture of the spine) even if some water (nerve supply) still gets through, the plants (organs) will eventually die. Physiologist and Researcher I.M. Korr states, “When the motion of intervertebral (Spinal) joints is even slightly amiss, there will be autonomic effects, with resulting circulatory, metabolic, and visceral repercussions."91 Nobel Prize recipient for brain research Dr. Roger Sperry said, “Ninety percent of the stimulation and nutrition to the brain is generated by the proper movement (from proper alignment) of the spine. It would be analogous to a windmill © 2011 Designer Health Centers Inc. All Rights Reserved. www.designerhealthcenters.com
  27. 27. generating electricity.” Nervous system damage due to improper spinal structure and function actually organizes diseases. According to research published in The Journal of the American Medical Association the author, Freeman J.T. said, “Deviations in the body’s center of gravity causes poor posture, which results in intestinal problems, hemorrhoids, varicose veins, osteoporosis, hip and food deformities, poor health, decreased quality of life and a shortened life span.”92 When physical nerve pressure is left undetected and uncorrected, a law of Physics called “Wolf’s Law” sets in. The law states that improper posture causes degenerative changes that will begin to occur and accelerate the aging process rapidly.93 This causes even more pressure on the nerves. Not only does forward head posture and misalignment cause herniations, arthritis (which is totally preventable94) and pinched nerves,95 but multiple studies performed by organizations such as Johns Hopkins and the Geriatric Society have shown that the spinal degenerative process can shut down organs and increase mortality. Roger Cady, M.D. published articles in the Journal of Pain Management (1994) for his groundbreaking study that linked poor posture to other physiological processes such as abnormal breathing, blood pressure, imbalanced hormone levels and a compromised immune system. When you have compressed nerves the nerves end up damaged and even die, which leads to defective communication.96 What happens when you have a corporation with flawed or decreased levels of communication? The business suffers and will eventually go bankrupt! Chiropractors specialize in structural and nervous system correction. However, many choose to run their offices under the umbrella of the TMM where they just focus on pain relief. Because they haven’t stayed up to date with the cutting edge technologies for nervous system and spinal corrective techniques, there is a need for achieving sustainable structural results. For this reason, Designer Health Centers has designed a Nervous System and Spinal Corrective Luxury Retreat. Our doctors have advanced training in the most cutting-edge structural corrective techniques and have worked with thousands of patients. Technology has evolved at a rapid pace enabling us to get correction and increase your health in a fraction of the time. Now you can literally get incredible spinal, biomechanical and brain balancing correction in one week!

Optimizing Nutrients: Summary In summary, these major deficiencies need to be addressed and in the TMM they absolutely are not. In fact, not only are they being ignored, but by being on pharmaceutical medications you are most likely causing more deficiencies within the body. As stated before, it’s not the physicians’ fault for the lack of knowledge in this area. Most doctors in the TMM are brilliant and have great hearts to serve mankind. The question one must ask is, An Analogy: “What tools do they have in their toolbox?” A fire fighter has two tools, axes and a fire hose. Doctors in the TMM have two tools, drugs and surgery. If you have a fire who are you going to call? No, not the ghost busters, but the fire fighters!  And will you be grateful? Of course you will. They could save your life. Likewise, if you get in a car accident and you’ve lost a limb, who are you going to call? 911! Please don’t call Designer Health Centers and ask for a shot of wheat grass. The TMM has its place in emergency situations like car accidents, or severe Fire Fighters vs. Electricians, Carpenters and Interior Decorators TMM: Fire fighters have two tools: 1. Axes (Drugs) 2. Fire hoses (Surgery) Use = only in fires (Emergencies) NHM: Electricians, Carpenters and Interior Decorators have many tools: 1. Tools To Check Electrical Integrity 2. Hammers, Wood and Nails for Building or Rebuilding Strong Foundation 3. Top Line Materials to make the Inside and Outside of Your House Looks Luxurious 4. Vacuums to Clean the Inside Out infections but that isn’t what it’s used for the majority of the time. After the firefighters leave, you call in the electricians, the plumbers, and Use = most of the time in Prevention or Rebuilding, Maximizing Safety, and electrician, and plumber. Ultimately, we don’t want Optimizing Design and Look to have fires in the first place, which is why the interior designers: Meet Designer Health Centers, your body’s personal interior decorator, we need to customize healthy lifestyle designs for each person--body, mind and spirit. This brings us to the third essential of the New Health Model, maximized relationships. © 2011 Designer Health Centers Inc. All Rights Reserved. www.designerhealthcenters.com
  29. 29. Maximized Relationships There are many aspects to having incredible relationships. There is no doubt that the longest living and healthiest people on the planet have incredible relationships. The 4 main relationships are the following: 1. Spiritual Relationship 2. Emotional Relationship 3. Innate Relationship 4. Personal Relationships If you can master your mind through psychologically living your life at “cause” and not “effect” then you will most likely have very healthy relationships. Living at cause means that instead of allowing life to “happen to us” we choose empowering meanings for every situation whether good or bad to maximize personal growth and development. Psychological toxicity develops when we live out Living at cause means that instead of allowing life to “happen to us” we choose empowering meanings for every situation whether good or bad to maximize personal growth and development. of balance, neglecting our spiritual and/or emotional and/or innate and/or personal relationships. It also develops when we tend to play the “blame” game and don’t ever take responsibility for how we are part of any equation whether it equals a good or bad experience or whether you were hurt or someone else hurt you. As a side note, your “innate relationship” is the relationship that you have with your inner self to maximize health. For instance, your body speaks to you all the time. It tells you not to eat certain foods, and yet we still do it. We have often become numb to our innate or inner self. The healthiest people in the world are constantly listening to what their body and heart are saying to them. Candice Pert is a Ph.D. at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. She is an internationally recognized pharmacologist who has published over 250 scientific articles on peptides and their receptors and the role of these neuropeptides in the immune system. Her research shows that our brain, glands, and immune system are in constant communication through our thoughts and emotions.97 98 © 2011 Designer Health Centers Inc.

  30. 30. This field of study is known as psychoneuroimmunology (PNI) and it deals with the interactions between psychological processes and the nervous and immune systems of the human body. There are now a multitude of various research papers that conclude that immune modulation by psychosocial stressors and/or interventions can lead to major health problems. Your thoughts can damage your immune, nervous and endocrine system.99 100 If destructive, they can also lead to increased rates of infection, 101 102 HIV progression, 103 104 and cancer incidence and advancement.105 106 107 Your thoughts send a cascade of hormones from the brain to the rest of the body through your endocrine system. These hormone messengers affect the functionality of the cell, which can affect your level of anxiety, fear, tension, anger, heart rate and blood pressure. Thinking more empowering thoughts can help all 11 organ systems in your body to function better which will lead to a happier, more energetic, kinder and healthier you! You choose the meaning you give every situation, and an individual living in the NHM is empowered and educated in order to make life transforming decisions that optimize health and vitality. Mastering psychology is so incredibly important that we work with Steve Linder, the world’s leading expert in NeuroStrategies, human psychology and neuro-linguistic programming (NLP). His company, Synergistic Results International (SRI inc.) has trained top seminar experts, celebrities and world leaders. I have been certified with my Masters in NeuroStrategies and NLP, which has been integrated into every program and seminar at Designer Health Centers in order to help our health participants achieve the best results. By mastering your psychology through maximizing your relationships and understanding advanced psychological strategies, you will maximize your health and wellbeing! Another Major Missing Piece in Health Care How can we take this information and implement it into our lives to achieve results? It would be through a term called “behavioral change.” This is what Designer Health Centers is pioneering in 21st century healthcare. Emerging research proves that the best way to overcome © 2011 Designer Health Centers Inc. All Rights Reserved. www.designerhealthcenters.com
  31. 31. disease is through behavioral changes. In the book, Health Care Delivery in the United States, Doctors Anthony Kovner and James Knickman state the following: “One perplexing part of our health sector is that changing an individual’s behavior has much greater impact on health and mortality than does spending money on medical care. Despite excellent research evidence documenting the importance of healthy lifestyles, we spend nine times more on medical care than on public health and behavioral health.”108 One of my good friends, and world expert in neurotoxic illnesses said, "Over 90% of people alive on this planet are silently developing disease due to the level of toxicity in their body." For many, the presence of these toxins has resulted in the development of chronic conditions. Forty-six percent of Americans (131 million people) had at least one chronic condition in 2005. This number is projected to grow to 50% (or 161 million) by the year 2030.109 This research is based on what is already diagnosed. There are millions of people silently developing diseases and they are unaware. As we’ve discussed throughout this body of literature, most of these conditions are not genetic. Designer Health Centers has created programs that are designed to allow each individual to reach optimal health by using two main strategies: #1 Get to the root causes of the problem and #2 Help each health participant implement a healthy lifestyle design through behavioral changes. That is why I founded Designer Health Centers (DHC), an international company designed to educate people on true health and give them the tools and strategies to get real results. Designer Health Centers is a company of doctors and experts that have undertaken advanced training (and ongoing training) to learn the most cutting-edge detoxification and behavioral change strategies. These strategies are the foundation of holistic health and they are proven to deliver real results. Designer Health Centers Mission Statement: To lead people to live the 3 essentials of the NHM. 1. Create Purity 2. Optimize Nutrients 3. Maximize Relationships © 2011 Designer Health Centers Inc. All Rights Reserved. www.designerhealthcenters.com
  32. 32. A prevailing thought among many doctors and epidemiologists is that most cancers, heart disease and diabetes are “dummy diseases.” They are termed "dummy diseases" because they are more often than not, preventable. The prevalence of these “dummy diseases” is highly attributable to the TMM. The TMM does not address the primary cause of disease, nor is it interested in understanding it. For many individuals, this lack of focus on the root cause has led to the development and worsening of a myriad of chronic conditions. We must create purity through removing toxicity, we must optimize nutrients through removing deficiencies, and we must maximize relationships through mastering our psychology! Investment to Live In the NHM “What they call healthcare is like a tapeworm eating away at our economic body.” - Warren Buffet Why You Can’t Rely on Health Insurance Before we dive in to the investment to live in the NHM, let’s first discuss why we shouldn’t rely on the traditional healthcare organizations like insurance companies. More and more people are disillusioned thinking that they are going to be "taken care of" by their insurance company. However, the true facts are hard to deny. According to the Kaiser Family Foundation and the U.S. Census Bureau, the number of uninsured Americans was up 10% in 2009 jumping from 48 million to 50 million 110. The economic recession in the United States is one of the main contributing factors for the rise in unemployment and the rise in the number of individuals without healthcare coverage. Health Affairs magazine also notes that premiums are rising at rates that are much faster than paid salaries making insurance coverage unaffordable for many Americans 111. Harvard University performed two studies that analyzed the correlation of medical bills to “If an illness is long enough and expensive enough, private insurance offer very little protection against medical bankruptcy and that’s the major finding in our study.”—Steffie Woolander, M.D. of Harvard Medical School113 bankruptcies. Dr. David Himmelstein, lead author of the 2005 Harvard study said, “Unless you’re Bill Gates, you’re just one serious illness away from bankruptcy. Most of the medically bankrupt were average Americans that happened to get © 2011 Designer Health Centers Inc. All Rights Reserved. www.designerhealthcenters.com
  33. 33. sick.” Dr. Himmelstein’s findings from this 2005 study were that approximately half of all bankruptcies in the U.S. were attributable to medical bills 112. Steffie Woolhander, M.D. of Harvard Medical School performed a similar study in 2009 investigating contributing factors of medical bills to bankruptcy. At that time, Dr. Woolhander found that medical bills were responsible for more than 60% of bankruptcies. Additionally, most families were middle class and well-educated 113. As economic conditions worsen, we can expect that these numbers will continue to grow. This is a sad reality and should spark a fire within Spending vs. Investing When It Comes To Healthcare: Part 1 you to take the necessary steps to ensure optimal health and functionality before it’s too late.

  34. 34. The Cost of the New Health Model What do you think is more expensive: to prevent disease or to try and treat it after it has become symptomatic? What is it worth to avoid the pain of cancer, heart disease, depression, chronic fatigue and/or diabetes? For a company to implement one of our wellness programs it could save them between $2.30 and $10.10 for every dollar invested through decreasing absenteeism, presenteeism (team members are sick at work and rendered unproductive), fewer sick days, reduced insurance claims, lower health insurance costs, and improved employee performance and productivity.114 Imagine what it could do for you personally or for your business? Socialized healthcare is just like the privatized healthcare system that is dominated by insurance companies. The philosophy of TMM is pervasive.

But I don’t think that’s truly the miracle. The real miracle is not developing disease in the first place. Most people want maximized experiences and high performance and function in life. We want quality emotions, relationships, and sensory stimuli. We want to travel, laugh, and eat good food. We want to grow old with our grand children and have the energy to bend down and play with them. How much is that worth? You’re going to be investing into your health.
