Ancient Principles into Self Health Practice
1. Eat Simply
This first ancient foundation principle to practice is your most important.
Look around – how many people do you see eating crap? Right, and they don't care, and they're not going to change. Fine.
Do you also see plenty more folks eating freaky-deaky weird diets. Sure you do, and they won't shut-up about their virtues. Been there, done that.
And are either of these types thriving on the playing field after 30, 40, 50 years of age?
No, no freakin' way... they might still look good, but they're a shadow of their previous, more formidably competitive self:
Did you want to join these above folks and limp along a full several zip codes away from your personal best?
OR, would you prefer to get better immediately and enjoy yourself dialing back the years until you're playing pain-free back out on the pitch again?
Don't take my word for it, do some homework you lazy bastard (this endearing term is addressed only to my fellow old guy soccer players).
You'll eventually realize food determines much more than your energy level and ever expanding waistline. It also jiggers your:
And guess what happens to any complex organic system if you jigger it too much... spilt milk, baby: "Sub, sub! I need a sub!"
I eat simply to live fully and play competitive league soccer at 58 years of age against punks half my age, AND do it while I've got a 3 year-old son and 6 year-old daughter. Yes, I'm sleep deprived.
And it's in this crucible where I've learned how TREMENDOUSLY important high-quality foods are, they determine:
My cheat sheet is not hard to learn, so listen up and you'll get all the details for free:
In case you didn't realize it: you are always eating, all the time, every day – either off your plates or off your body. Yes, yes, yes – you eat yourself – humans are designed that way, ding dong.
And the human body has evolved to work far more efficiently by feasting off body stores of fats, vitamins and minerals within, and not off our plates.
Unfortunately, since we don't eat high-grade quality foods off our plates, we don't have enough high-grade quality food elements stored on our bodies!
You can evolve your food choices as fast as you can; allow me to repeat and refine:
Oops, what's already stored in your blood, bone and tissues is going to take some time to flush out. You're going to have to work to reclaim whatever level of youthful rejuvenation you desire. But you can, fast or slow...
Regardless how fast you go, start now with the highest-grade quality food for your plate, because:
Daily food is destiny!
Want a better destiny – eat simply.

Your body and mind will thank you!
2. Rest Completely
This next ancient wisdom foundation requires your attention and focus on something we all do every night when we sleep:
I've found all the following and more to be wonderfully true (after I eat simply) for body and mind and then fast (rest completely):
My evidence of these benefits includes lab tests as well as objective observation of improvements in all categories, like never getting seasonal colds, or catching contagious illnesses from my family members.
Even if you get the high quality Eat Simply foundation down, you must still activate quality digestion by cellular renewal wherever and whenever the body needs it. If not, then your higher quality diet won't produce dramatic benefits – and these dramatic improvements only arise if you learn to fast correctly and rest completely.
You can read the ancients and discover their practices. You can find a martial arts teacher willing to share elite warrior recuperative practices for high-performing body and mind. Or you can do this for free if you know how to fast and break fasts:
Fasting also accelerates clearing of accumulated toxins, repair of damaged cells and even reclamation of naturally occurring daily/circadian metabolic rhythms for complete rest and deep alignment.
Unfortunately we don't have any warrior culture fasting rituals and masters to learn from today. I guess were also fortunate to not have to be elite warriors...
3. Train Deeply
This final principle is the most powerful ancient wisdom foundation, by orders of magnitude.
That's it. I've discovered this by direct practice. I've also learned:
The body rapidly learns and then yearns to be trained deeply. Continuous daily effort builds momentum – you just have to get your mind out of the way.
And only one hour a day is plenty enough to cultivate a solid, lasting foundation. This is all you need to know, the rest you can discover.
Now go and do.
Please know I want you to be a self-starter for free. If you keep reading I'm either going to take your money, or send you packing.
I hope you're not here like some of my friends: inconsistent, distracted seeker types – the occasional wellness tourist.
I've friends who chase wellness like a frustrated striker coming back to play D just so they can get the ball. On Wall Street and at Burning Man I also met folks with addictions to peak experiences – it's not just soccer players.
Being a wellness tourist is still a risky proposition.
Some tourists can get infected by the pandemic disease of "fuckarounditis" – it evolves into a mental disability where one constantly seeks the next new new thing instead of sticking to the current known thing and getting better.
It's all good: the human body will eventually recover.
Of course it won't recover fully and then only very slowly. So you'll be absent from the playing field for extended periods of time. Meh, we're getting older, right?
It's still better to have fuckarounditis than be a body "hacker". Hackers will do anything new at the most challenging threshold they can stand and then grind it out – well before their body is ready.
And then they crash.
Please don't grind. I don't grind. Sometimes I crash for other reasons, but I never grind. Neither should you. It is completely unnecessary and damaging.
Eat Simply and Rest Completely can be done fast or slow, whichever way best fits your temperament and circumstances. Either speed can be made surprisingly fun and enjoyable without grinding if you design them that way.
These solid foundations of body/mind alignment make rapid, enduring wellness progress and injury recovery possible, including:
Training deeply is my final, integrative catalyst to activate the most powerful, autonomic wellness potentials in our bodies – and then everything improves together!
And yet for many this path is better to have never begun.
Dramatic and significant changes might be uncomfortable, and they will come – do not engage this ancient wisdom lightly!
If you can commit to a deliberate, methodical and focused practice of eat simply and rest completely wisdom foundations, then reach out to me.
