A Message From Dr.Group

The unfortunate truth about modern medicine is that it’s highly focused on treating the symptoms of disease, without addressing the root cause of the issue. I’ve dedicated my life to helping others by finding and fixing the root cause of poor health. I am on a never ending mission to find new and better ways to accomplish that goal. It’s who I am, it’s my drive, it’s why I get out of bed in the morning.

What is my diet?

I’ve always believed that you should practice what you preach, so I hold myself to the most rigorous standards of health and wellness. Exercise is vital for maintaining health and wellness, so I exercise every day. Again and again, research confirms that everyone can benefit from physical activity.

To find the best nutrition to support the body, I perform ongoing dietary experiments. I would never recommend something I was unwilling to do myself, so I’ve evaluated numerous dietary plans by simply trying them out. I’ve tested raw vegan, fruitarian, and gluten-free. I’ve tried incorporating different fasting programs, supplements, and restrictions.

After 25 years of nutritional research, I’ve come to the conclusion that there is no one perfect diet that works for everybody. Each person is unique, and our understanding of nutrition continues to evolve. My current diet is vegetarian, leaning towards ketogenic, with no sugar and no gluten. I believe that intermittent fasting is extremely effective at repairing the body, so I perform several fasts each year.

Supplements I take and how I take them

Supplementation can help support health, but your body can slowly build a tolerance for supplements, so I use them in rotation. I like to give my body a break from supplements once a week, so I refrain from taking supplements on Sundays. My regular supplements include iodine, Intramax, and Cell Fuzion.

As we live our lives, we pick up toxins from the environment. You can reduce your exposure to these agents, but it’s near impossible to avoid them completely. There are simply too many sources—bad food, bad air, pollution, pesticides, chemicals, harmful organisms and hundreds of others. I do regular cleanses to remove these substances from my system. I believe liver cleanses to be especially important, and I perform them at least twice a year.

Finally, while you take care of your physical body, don’t neglect your mind. We all have stressors in our lives, and it’s important to find a healthy way to deal with them. The way I manage stress is through daily meditation. Meditation is a free, powerful way to soothe the mind and promote healing from within. I have personally experienced more benefits to body, mind, and soul from meditation than from any other medicine or activity.

My typical daily routine (A normal day in my shoes)

I believe in getting an early start, so I typically wake up at 4:30. The very first thing I do is meditate for at least an hour to clear my mind and mentally organize my day. I have a healthy breakfast at 6. By 7:30, I’m in the gym doing cardio and weight training. I arrive at the office at 8:30 and meet with the team to go over the high priority items and make sure we’re on track to make good progress. Throughout the day, we work and meet as needed to go over status updates and make decisions. It’s important to have an efficient workday because I believe in work/life balance, and my evenings are reserved for spending time with my wife and sons. After a family dinner, I like to wind down with a good book. Bedtime is typically 9:30.

The Great Secret of Human Life

The Great Secret of Human Life and Inspiration is becoming a master of thought, action, health and spirituality. This should be a lifelong goal. How do we accomplish this? By overcoming your indulgence and bad habits through dedication and self control. By strengthening your willpower. By transforming your disposition of character. By doing good things and being helpful to all. By respecting the life around you and becoming one with nature. By gaining understanding that all life is connected. By recognizing that thoughts are manifestations and creations. By learning from what the past was and what the future can be. By becoming humble and expressing gratitude for all the blessings you receive. By loving GOD, yourself, and others. By becoming wise instead of smart. By keeping your brain mentally stimulated. By working in a job that you love to do. By learning from children. By feeling the light that flows forever from your heart. By having so much faith that you have no fear. By searching for and finding the kingdom of Heaven within. By becoming kind and loving to plants and animals. By working as hard in your relationships as you do in your job. By providing selfless service to others. By thinking about other people more than you think about yourself. By talking less and listening more. By giving more than you receive. By listening to your body and providing it with clean food and water. By understanding the divine power within. By forgiving people who have done you harm. By living in the present moment. By following your passions and destiny. By living as if today is your last day. By understanding that anger destroys peace, neutralizes love, creates hatred, and causes enemies. By recognizing, controlling, and releasing your anger efficiently. By doing things that make you laugh. By hugging people heart to heart. By reducing your attachment to material things. By never criticizing or blaming others, either to their face or behind their back. By never speaking an unkind word. By not stealing or telling lies. By always working on methods of self-improvement. By recognizing and controlling the ego. By acknowledging your mistakes and trying not to make the same ones in the future. By not bragging about how much money or possessions you have. By realizing that all of the above can be accomplished with the power and practice of love!
