6 Steps to a longer, disease-free life


I’m going to be blunt this morning.

If you are interested in living a longer, disease-free life, our modern healthcare system is not the way to do it.

I thought of this on Wednesday as I was walking into a local medical center for my annual GYN exam. Practically everyone around me in the lobby was overweight, or could barely walk without difficulty, or looked like they were at death’s door.

And of course, the line at the pharmacy was nice and long.

So this experience inspired me to write this blog for you today.

Because you have the power within you to create health and pave the way for a longer life!

Here’s how—first you need to:

Open your eyes to the shortcomings of our healthcare system

Our modern health care system focuses on anything BUT creating health and preventing disease.

That’s because the curriculums in our medical schools are pharmaceutical based.

That means our doctors are not learning how to keep you healthy, prevent sickness or support your body’s natural ability to heal. Instead, they are learning what drugs to give for what conditions...and are taught to poo-poo most other ideas or approaches.

Nutrition? It doesn’t matter what you eat!

Acupuncture or chiropractic treatment? That’s quackery!

Supplements? A waste of money. Take this medication instead.

Sadly, many brilliant minds that entered medical school with a desire to help others are instead coming out as robots for drug companies.

And as far as health goes, forget it. Disease management is what you’re going to get.

Want real health? It’s up to YOU

When you improve your lifestyle habits and focus your efforts on creating HEALTH, you are naturally decreasing your chances of developing a sickness or disease and lessening your need for medications!

Now, there may be times where medications are necessary, but we have gone WAY overboard and rely too heavily on drugs to “create false health” for us.

So, if you want to get on the road to a truly healthier you, here are 6 simple yet powerful steps to take:

Step 1: Have a healthy, fiber-rich diet

This is numero uno.

Nothing can ruin your health faster and easier than an unhealthy diet.

If you ever want hopes of living life free of disease, you MUST eat wholesome real foods that are natural sources of nutrients.

These include fresh vegetables and fruits, meats, poultry and wild-caught fish, eggs, full fat dairy, whole grains, nuts and seeds, and healthy fats (including real butter, olive oil, lard and coconut oil).

At the same time, stay far away from foods that will invite the grim reaper to come knocking at your door sooner than you think.

I’m talking about all processed foods, inflammatory vegetable oils, artificial sweeteners, soda, fast food, refined grains and sugars. 

Step 2: Supplement smartly

Very few supplements are needed by everyone. Our biochemical individuality makes us different so very seldom will two people have the exact same needs.

But there are two supplements that are the exceptions to this rule and are right for just about everyone:

Probiotics and a multi-vitamin.

1- Probiotics

Potent, full-spectrum probiotics like Super Shield PLUS are universally helpful because we ALL face challenges to our microbiome balance which can in turn hamper your digestion and impair your immune system functioning—two things that have a major impact on your health from head to toe!

And Super Shield PLUS’s well-researched, complete 15-strain and 20 billion CFU formula is up to these important challenges and more!

2- Multi-vitamin

At one time vitamins were primarily for people whose diets were less-than-stellar, but that has all changed.

Now we are looking at a variety of reasons and factors that prevent the average person from consistently getting all the nutrients their bodies need from the foods they eat.

These include changes in farming methods (resulting in less nutritious crops), medications (many of which impair nutrient absorption), poor digestion (just look at how many people use acid reducers!) and stress.

So we’ve reached the point where supplementing with a complete multi-vitamin and mineral formula is the only 100 percent reliable way to ensure your body consistently has what it needs!

And our very own Super Core multi-vitamin and mineral formula is your ticket to solid nutrition.

I hand selected all the nutrients in Super Core to provide an effective, health-supporting variety of essential vitamins and minerals. 

Plus, Super Core’s effective blend goes WAY beyond most other multis and also includes natural sources of antioxidants and anti-inflammatories!

Step 3: MOVE

There is no getting around it—if you want anything that even resembles health, you must get regular exercise.

No excuses! You have the time.

Ask yourself this question: What fits into your “busy schedule” better—exercising 1 hour a day or being dead 24 hours a day?

Make it fun—do something you like, and if you don’t like any form of exercise, then at least walk. Just about everybody can do that.

Get an exercise buddy. You’ll talk and laugh the time away as you get more fit. My friend Mariana and I have a blast in our mixed martial arts classes!

Just be sure to get your doctor’s OK first.

Step 4: Get some decent rest

Getting adequate sleep is vital.

Regularly having fewer than 7 hours of sleep per night:

  • Increases your risk of accidents at work and on the road
  • Reduces your immune function
  • Raises your risk of overweight or obesity by increasing levels of appetite-increasing hormones
  • Increases your risk of Type 2 diabetes 
  • Impairs your brain function and increases your risk of memory loss
  • Raises your risk of heart disease, Alzheimer’s and cancer


Try to get into a healthy sleep routine by going to bed at the same time every night. Also, avoid caffeine, sugar and alcohol before bed, as they all can disrupt your sleep. 

You can also engage the helpful power of melatonin in our Soothing Zzzz’s Blend Gummies

Step 5: Reduce stress

Chronic stress can suppress your immune function, ruin your digestion, keep you awake at night, cause weight gain, stir up inflammation and cause your adrenals to wave the white flag of defeat.

Do whatever it takes to lower stress in your life—keeping in mind that regular exercise does wonders to lower stress levels.

Step 6: Demand alternatives

Remember this: Your doctor works for you—not the other way around.

So, if all your doctor wants to do is push medications at you, won’t listen to you or answer your questions, or gets annoyed if you inquire about natural options, it’s time to find another doctor.

Seek out an integrative physician—one who is trained in both traditional and holistic protocols.

Now you are truly on a path to real health—not a lifetime of disease management.

To your health,
