I’m going to allow the interview to do the talking on this man’s incredible story, but in the meantime, I’m going to say a few things about health. And note, this isn’t meant to be a scientific rundown, but instead a look at our own life experiences for a moment and to reflect.
Have you ever thought about the fact that our baseline for measurement as to what ‘healthy’ is may be totally out of whack? Think for a moment. Let’s say we believed vitality looked like the average human today. When we go to study those humans, what they eat, what blood pressure is like, how organs function and so forth, it is all based on the baseline understanding we generated from the testing of those average bodies.
We then use that data to compare everything else we know about health to those baselines. But what if vitality looked like something completely different than what we know now? After all, you don’t know what you don’t know, and until you feel incredible, you wouldn’t truly know you could feel so good. This is a feeling I have had many times in my health focused journey of the last 10 years and consistently I am mind blown as to how good I can feel.
There are vicious debates online about what we should be eating, how we should look, and what the right human diet is. In 10 years I have come to one conclusion from all of this: we’re confused about health and confused about how we think humans should function. Not only that, but we are getting sicker and are consistently feeling worse. Why? Why are heart disease, diabetes and obesity the biggest causes of death in our modern world? Because we live under immense stress and we consume diets that don’t support vitality in our body.
