What does exercise truly do for us, or what can it truly do for us if we know how to maximize it?

Maximizing Exercise to Connect with Our Higher Self

Watch the video : Internal Intelligence and Exercise – What Does Exercise Truly Do For Us?

If maximized, exercise allows us to connect to our inherent, infinite intelligence within ourselves. Some refer to this intelligence as our higher self, our soul, God, etc.

Whatever name we decide to connect to this intelligence, this connection we share is as true as the day is long. The most amazing news is that within each one of us we have an ​expression​ of this intelligence that has awareness, of all t​hat IS, all that WAS, and all that will BE.

Connecting to Our Internal Higher Self Through Prayer and Meditation

As we pray or meditate we connect more​ to our internal intelligence, which by the way is our true barometer of life. As we practice, we become more discerned and we are able to perceive or recognize subtle differences in ourselves and life, because we are connected to our internal higher self. It’s our higher self that is ​able to tell us more.​

Our higher self also connects us to others, because this infinite intelligence is expressed through billions of others universally and everything, period.

As we become more attuned to our higher self within us we are not only better for ourselves but we are better to others and for others.

Mediation, Prayer, Higher Self and Exercise

So what does this all have to do with exercise? Great question.

Again, when exercise is “done correctly” it connects us to ourselves by way of our metacognitive ability and it’s this awareness of our consciousness and conscious attention that allows us to redirect our subconscious to control our behaviors.

Mastering our Neurological Self

Here is the power in what I share, exercise, can be a key component for us in mastering our neurological self. Don’t forget, what we mentally rehearse and what we physically demonstrate is who we are on a neurological level. The “Neurological Us” is made up of the combination of our thinking, our feelings, our emotions, our actions, and our creations on a moment-to-moment basis.

Open your eyes and your heart to this wisdom and see, maybe for the first time, the true potential and power of exercise? Yes, exercise is meditative, or it can be!

The best way to combat viruses is to strengthen your immune system with a proper healthy lifestyle.

The best way to combat viruses is to strengthen your immune system with a proper healthy lifestyle.


Today I would like to address prevention, disease and the immune system.

How to Strengthen Your Immune System

Everywhere I am hearing the same question: how can we boost our immune system to combat the coronavirus and viruses in general?

Watch the video : Combating the Coronavirus with Your Own Immune System + Other Tips

Understand, it’s not a function of boosting our immune system as much as it is a function of strengthening our immune system and its many processes. It’s important to keep in mind that our immune system isn’t a single closed system but a multi-processing system.

How the Immune System Works

Our multi-processing system consists of the white blood cells, tissue cells derived from white blood cells, the thymus, lymph nodes and lymph vessels that protect the body from, and ward off, pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, parasites, and fungi.

You immune response. This is how your immune system works.

Your immune response. This is how your immune system works.

The immune system provides a mechanism for the body to:

  1. Distinguish its own cells from foreign cells and substances.
  2. Destroy the invader by phagocytosis or by producing sensitized lymphocytes or specialized proteins (like antibodies) that either destroy or neutralize the invaders.

How Our Lifestyles Affect Our Immune System

What directly affects our immune system? Great question. Our immune system is directly affected by what we eat, drink, breathe, how we protect and maintain our lifestyle and our personal hygiene. Most of this is common sense and we know that the poorer the lifestyle, the greater amount of toxins accumulate in and on our bodies. Not to mention we are more vulnerable to infections, viruses and cancers.

What a creation we are when it comes to counteraction. You see, our bodies are brilliantly designed to process, metabolize and clear toxins naturally.

However, we live in a world where the amount of toxins we take in daily often exceeds and counteracts what the body was designed to eliminate. This excess of toxins overwhelm our bodies natural healing pathways. With that said, here is the most amazing part, you and I with the right lifestyle we can control and defend against the many ills of a compromised immune system.

Bad Habits = Immune System Forced to Work Overtime

Ready for some more common sense? We all know that living a lifestyle of junk food, little or poor exercise, a stressful lifestyle and compromised hygiene, our immune system is forced to work overtime to protect us from our bad habits. The big problem here is that our immune system like every other system in our brilliant bodies becomes overworked and when overworked they become weaker and less effective at saving and moving our lives forward.

Be reminded, it’s not a matter of boosting our immune system, it’s a matter of strengthening it. With all we know, and all the new scientific evidence still to come concerning the intricacies and interconnectedness of the immune response, what is evidently clear is the massive impact and benefits to the quality and length of our lives comes down to, you guessed it, the “proper healthy lifestyle”.

Strengthen Your Immune System with a Proper Healthy Lifestyle

There are many things you can do right now to help strengthen your immune system.

There are many things you can do right now to help strengthen your immune system.

Here are some are some preventable tips to help keep your immune system strong.

  1. Don’t smoke and avoid smoke from others who are smoking around you
  2. Find your specific diet with the appropriate fats, proteins and carbohydrates for your health and lifestyle.
  3. Maintain your correct weight for your lifestyle and actives.
  4. If you drink alcohol, know what to drink and in what amounts for you.
  5. Get restful sleep that comes from healthy lifestyle habits.
  6. Have a good spiritual connection, which is my priority #1.

Tips to Stop the Spread of Viruses

  1. If you are ill stay at home, rest and avoid physical contact with others.
  2. If you find yourself out in public and you are concerned about getting or spreading any virus, wear a face mask.
  3. When you have to be in someone’s presence, communicate politely but avoid physical contact.
The best strategies to avoid or spread virus and infections:
  1. Washing your hands properly and frequently.
  2. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, mouth and face.
  3. 5×5 hand washing
  4. Air hugs

Your Own Immune System is the Best Prevention

Keep in mind and don’t forget this, all these tips are helpful but the best way to prevent the coronavirus, and future virus outbreaks that are pretty much guaranteed to come, is with your own immune system. The number one way to build your immune system naturally and organically is everything I have mentioned thus far.

Brian working with a client via video conferencing. Diet and exercise are 2 of the most important ways to strengthen your immune system.

Watch the video : Anterior Head Carriage – What is it & How to Fix it

Anterior head carriage occurs when our head moves forward in relation to normal body alinement.

With our sternum up and scapula back our heads should be centered over our hips with our ears falling in line with the center of our shoulders. All other positions cause increased stress on our spines and the muscles surrounding it.

The Effects (and extra weight) of Anterior Head Carriage

On average the human head weights an impressive 14 pounds alone, not including the weight of our necks. With our necks easily we can be over 20 pounds.

For every one inch our heads moves forward, out of alignment, our spine and the muscles surrounding it, gain an additional 10 pounds of added stress due to gravitational forces downwards.

So, if you simply have a 2 inch anterior head carriage, the stress and force applied to your bones and the muscles of your neck and upper back is over 34+ pounds.

Remember, this doesn’t include the weight of our necks.

How it Effects the Body

Anterior head carriage causes structural damage, pain and discomfort in our upper backs and necks. Tension type headaches are also associated with this destructive posture.

What causes anterior head carriage?

Any situation that causes us to lean forward for an extended period of time like working on our computer, or simply standing or walking with our head down, sternum dropped and our shoulders rounded forward.

One of the main causes of anterior head carriage is pore posture while at work on the computer.

One of the main causes of anterior head carriage is pore posture while at work on the computer.

Anterior head carriage begins to structurally change the shape of our necks and our spines by reshaping our bones and weakening the muscles that support our living.

Also, keep in mind, that we have a natural curve in our spine in our necks. As our head leans forward, this curve straightens out and here we go; pain, discomfort, and earlier degeneration of our spines.

Correcting Anterior Head Carriage

So what do you do? Straighten up you kids, literally!

Let’s look at how much we need to straighten up.

How do I Know if I Have it?

Stand with your back and heals against a wall and measure the space between the back of your head and the wall itself. If your head is centered over your body you will have very little space if any.

To be more accurate the center of your ear should line up over the center of your acromion where the supraspinatus muscle inserts at the greater tubercle of the humerus bone.

How far your ear is in front of your shoulder’s true center point is the amount, if any, of anterior head carriage you have.

How far your ear is in front of your shoulder’s true center point is the amount, if any, of anterior head carriage you have.

Take a level and find the true center of your shoulder. Once this line is established the center of your ear should line up right over your shoulder where the supraspinatus inserts at the greater tubercle of the humerus bone. The amount of your ear in front of this line, indicates the amount of anterior head carriage you have.

How to Correct it

If you find you do have anterior head carriage work on correcting this by doing head retractions periodically throughout the day.

  1. While sitting upright move your head backwards without extending or flexing your neck. Think of it as giving yourself a double chin. Initially this will feel very awkward but over time you will become more comfortable with it and you will start to feel what position your head should be in. Do this every hour 10 times.
  2. After double chin session, raise your sternum up, retract your scapula, pull your humerus bone in your arms backward and contract your traps and rhomboids and hold this ascending rapture pose for 20 to 30 seconds then relax for 30 second and repeat 3 to 5 times.

If you ever experience any abnormal symptoms or excessive pain do not perform the above retractions and get evaluated by a doctor.

Can diabetes be treated organically with diet and exercise? Yes it can!

Can diabetes be treated organically with diet and exercise? Yes it can!


We hear about Diabetes all the time but what are the different forms of Diabetes and why do we need to be aware of diabetes?

What is Diabetes?

To understand Diabetes we first need to understand the pancreas and its function pertaining to blood sugar.

Watch the video : Diabetes: Types & Causes: Prevention & Treatment with Diet & Exercise

Understanding the Pancreas

The pancreas is about 6 inches long and sits across the back of our abdomen, behind the stomach. The head of the pancreas is on the right side of our abdomen and is connected to the duodenum (the first section of the small intestine) through a small tube called the pancreatic duct. The narrow end of the pancreas, called the tail, extends to the left side of our bodies.

The pancreas is about 6 inches long and sits across the back of our abdomen, behind the stomach. When the pancreas malfunctions, it shows up as diabetes.

The pancreas is about 6 inches long and sits across the back of our abdomen, behind the stomach. When the pancreas malfunctions, it shows up as diabetes.

This little organ has a massive impact on the quality and length of our lives based on the hormone insulin it produces. Insulin is the master regulator in turning glucose, a type of sugar, from the food we eat into usable energy.

The Different Forms of Diabetes

When we have a malfunction of our pancreas it shows up in many areas of our lives but today we will only focus on three; Type 1, type 2 and pre-diabetes. So let’s look at these three real quick.

Type 1 Diabetes

Type 1 diabetes is a condition in which our immune system destroys insulin making beta cells in our pancreas. This form of diabetes is usually diagnosed in children and young adults and is known as juvenile diabetes.

In type 1 diabetes, the insulin making beta cells are killed by the immune system over a period of months or years.

In type 1 diabetes, the insulin making beta cells are killed by the immune system over a period of months or years.

There is also a condition called secondary diabetes which is like type 1, but our beta cells are compromised by disease or an injury to our pancreas, not by our immune system.

Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes we are still making insulin, but our cells don’t use it as well as they should and here is where the problem begins. In the beginning stage, our pancreas makes more insulin trying to deliver glucose into our cells.

In type 2 diabetes the body is not able to make enough insulin which causes blood sugar to be locked out of the cells.

In type 2 diabetes the body is not able to make enough insulin which causes blood sugar to be locked out of the cells.

But eventually our little pancreas gets tired and can’t keep up, so the glucose in our blood stream builds up to dangerous levels.

People with type 2 diabetes are said to have insulin resistance. Those of us who are mostly affected by type 2 diabetes are middle-aged or older and due to their age this is labeled adult-onset diabetes. However, type 2 diabetes also affects kids and teens, mainly because of… I hate to say it… childhood obesity caused by poor lifestyles.

Type 2 diabetes is the most common type affecting an estimated 29 million of us in the U.S. not to mention that roughly 8 million of us have it and don’t even know it since our symptoms are so mild.


So now let’s take a look at prediabetes since this is where the most good can be held… prevention is the key here.

Prediabetes is an ongoing condition when our blood sugars, glucose, is elevated but not elevated enough to be diagnosed as diabetes yet. Keep in mind those of us with prediabetes, that goes uncontrolled will turn into type 2 diabetes.

Currently, about 88 million of us over age 20 in the U.S. have pre-diabetes, but 84% of us don’t even know we have this pre-life altering disease…

Can I get a… Holy Cow!!

For those of us who are fighting diabetes and those who are prediabetic understand that diabetes is a lifelong disease that demands daily attention, monitoring and lifestyle modification because without proper management, diabetes can have debilitating with irreversible consequences.

Treating Diabetes Organically

You might find yourself asking; If I am prediabetic or have diabetes… how can I treat it organically? This is such a loaded question due to the fact that it’s all individual based on a moment to moment moving disease. Therefore the answer to this question isn’t easy or easy to come by… no matter what popular media tells us.

Listen, I could get you all excited about how easy it is to make some small changes to your diet and do a little cardio and push some weights around. Or better yet I could you excited and tell you to simply get involved in generic events to control diabetes… but I would be just simply lying.

Exercise and Lifestyle Modification

So let’s see where exercise, lifestyle modification and TheissCare fits into those with prediabetes or diabetes. Keep in mind that the founder of TheissCare has worked with thousands of clients globally for the past 35 years and counting with astonishing and life saving results time and time again with clients dealing with diabetes.

The Sodium Potassium Pump - Nutrition and the Brain

The Sodium Potassium Pump – Nutrition and the Brain

The daily dietary choices we make go far beyond impacting our physical health. They also have a significant effect on our short-term and long-term cognitive health, and ultimately may even factor into how we think and behave. However, before we can look at the major role that good nutrition has on the health of our brains, we first need to know the difference between our brains and our minds.

Difference Between Our Brains and Our Minds

Our brain

Our Brain

Our brains are the working process of our consciousness minds, which is connected to a network of 85 to 100 billion neurons in our brains. These neurons are connected to billions of other neurons that control every cellular function in our bodies. What’s amazing is that all of these neurons transfer messages of thought that are created in our minds beyond the physical world by chemical neurotransmitters. These messages of thought are delivered and stored in our unconscious mind bodies and produce our repeated patterns of life and our daily habits.

Our mind

Our Mind

Just how powerful is this process of our minds to use our brains to create and store these messages that control us on a moment-to-moment basis that determines our neurological us? Our neurological us is our personalities and our personality traits we share and express to the world, and that world responds back to us and confirms who we are and who we are becoming neurologically. Keep in mind, our neurological self-drives 95% of our unconscious program self by sending messages back up to our brains so we can act without thinking; nerve and the brain-body connection. This huge and daunting task is assisted by our nutrition, opening more chemical channels to release more neurotransmitters.

What are Neurotransmitters?

Synaptic CleftIn order for neurons, or nerve cells, to send messages throughout the body, they need to be able to communicate with one another. However, neurons are not simply connected to one another. A small gap, called the synaptic cleft, separates each neuron. Thus, a chemical messenger is needed to relay signals between neurons. It is neurotransmitters that are the chemical messenger that carry signals between neurons and other cells in the body through a process called neurotransmission, ultimately allowing communication to take place between neurons.

The neurotransmitters that get released in the brain can affect an array of psychological and physiological functions; including mood, learning, concentration, appetite, sleep, and heart rate. Neurotransmitters are so important that neurotransmitter imbalances are thought to be associated with Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease, as well as psychiatric illnesses such as depression and schizophrenia.

Scientists have discovered more than 60 molecules that meet the criteria for being classified as a neurotransmitter.

Some of the best-known neurotransmitters include:

  • Acetylcholine: a very widely distributed excitatory neurotransmitter that triggers muscle contraction and stimulates the excretion of certain hormones. In the central nervous system, it is involved in wakefulness, attentiveness, anger, aggression, sexuality, and thirst.
  • Dopamine: involved in controlling movement and posture. It also modulates mood and plays a central role in positive reinforcement and dependency.
  • GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid): contributes to motor control, vision, and many other cortical functions. It also regulates anxiety.
  • Glutamate: is associated with learning and memory.
  • Histamine: plays a role in metabolism, temperature control, regulating various hormones, and controlling the sleep-wake cycle.
  • Norephinephrine: is important for attentiveness, emotions, sleeping, dreaming, and learning. Norepinephrine is also released as a hormone into the blood, where it causes blood vessels to contract and heart rate to increase.
  • Serotonin: contributes to various functions, such as regulating body temperature, sleep, mood, appetite, and pain


Watch the video : The Sodium Potassium Pump – How Nutrition Affects Our Brain

How Neurotransmitters Communicate Signals from Neuron to Neuron

For neurons to communicate with one another, neurotransmitters must be released from one neuron and bind to another neuron. In doing so, signals are relayed from neuron to neuron, which ultimately allows our thoughts, behaviors, and bodily functions to be expressed.

In order for neurotransmitters to be released from neurons in the brain, an electrical impulse, called an action potential, must be generated.  This electrical impulse allows for neurotransmitters to cross the synaptic cleft. Once neurotransmitters cross the synaptic cleft, they bind to receptors on another neuron.  The neurotransmitters act like a key and the receptor site act like a lock. It takes the right key to open specific locks. If the neurotransmitter is able to work on the receptor site, it triggers changes in the receiving cell. This results in messages being relayed from one neuron to another.

In order for the electrical impulse to be activated that triggers the release and transport of these neurotransmitters, an electrical gradient must be maintained in each cell. The sodium potassium pump is the mechanism responsible for maintaining this electrical gradient, doing so by pumping two potassium ions into the cell and pumping out three sodium ions, ultimately leading to the interior of the nerve cell being slightly more negative than the exterior.  This creates the conditions for an electrical signal to travel. Without this proper functioning of the sodium potassium pump, nerve cells will not function and neurotransmitters will not be released in appropriate amounts, as an imbalance of sodium and potassium will result in either too many or too few neurotransmitters will be released.

How Our Diet Impacts the Sodium Potassium Pump

The functioning of the sodium potassium pump is greatly impacted by our diet, as we consume both of these minerals through the foods that we eat.

The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends that both adults and children limit sodium intake to 2,300 mg- which is about one teaspoon of salt. However, the average American consumes 3,400 mg of sodium on daily basis! Furthermore, only 3% of Americans consume the recommended 4,700 mg of potassium per day, with most Americans consuming just about half of this recommendation.

This over-consumption of sodium and under-consumption of potassium is associated with many health risks; including high blood pressure, stroke, obesity, and heart disease. Furthermore, this excess sodium intake and deficient potassium intake can also lead to sub-optimal functioning of the sodium potassium pump, thereby leading to weaker nerve impulses, which results in fewer neurotransmitters being released in the brain.

Thus, it is no surprise that researchers are now correlating high sodium diets with memory and concentration problems. Furthermore, as neurotransmitters play a role in dictating emotional state, any influence that weakens neurotransmitter could affect our emotions as well.

Therefore, it is important that we balance our sodium and potassium intake. Doing so helps to ensure that the electrochemical gradient in each neuron will be optimally maintained, leading to stronger electrical signals in the brain and a greater release of neurotransmitters, ultimately resulting in not only an improved physical state, but also an improved cognitive state.

What Should I Eat to Positively Impact the Sodium Potassium Pump?

So how do we balance our sodium and potassium intake? Well, the answer is really quite simple- minimize processed foods! While most people generally correlate adding salt to a meal while cooking or after it is prepared as the culprit for the overconsumption of sodium, this is not the case. Rather, the culprit of Americans’ overconsumption of sodium is salt that is added during the preparation of processed foods, which is a staple of the American diet. Restaurant food and drinks, even items such as sweet blended coffee drinks, doughnuts, and cookies all contain high amounts of sodium.

On the other hand, a daily diet consisting of two-thirds unprocessed plant foods and one-third unprocessed animal foods will only provide you with around 600 mg of sodium. In fact, it would seem nearly impossible to consume more than 1,200-1,500 mg of sodium per day from unprocessed foods!

Additionally, consuming a diet high in unprocessed plant foods will result in naturally higher potassium intake, as potassium is found in abundance in many plant foods. Some of the best sources of potassium are bananas, potatoes, prunes, oranges, beans and tomatoes.

While many people tend look for a quick fix to maintaining sodium-potassium balance through supplementing, this is not recommended. Most people get more than enough sodium through their normal diet. Furthermore, while overconsumption of potassium is rare, it can occur via overdosing with potassium supplements, which can have dangerous side effects.

Final Thoughts… The Sodium Potassium Pump – Nutrition and the Brain

The daily choices we make have health consequences that impact both our physical and cognitive wellbeing. The small decisions we make on a daily basis add up. Overtime, consistently making the choice to opt for the convenience of processed foods over more nutritious whole food can impact our memory, concentration, and mood- and may even go so far as to factoring in to how our neurological-self is expressed.


"Thank you Brian! I can still hear you motivating me to do more."

“Thank you Brian! I can still hear you motivating me to do more.”

We are living in a time of tremendous breakthroughs in every field. In order to take part in those evolving benefits, all of us are being forced to offload mistaken and limited concepts of the past. A truly motivating thought comes from motivational author Alvin Toffler, who wrote, “The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read, but those who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn.”

I hope this article touches that part of your highest self that motivates you to grow – to take control of your energy, fitness, weight, health, and life – because if you do not, someone called a health-care provider will! At this point, it’s still your choice….

The Weight Loss Continues On

Brian motivates his clients to continue the weight loss even after the program“Unbelievable, it has been ten years since I have worked directly with you. What is even more unbelievable lies in the fact that the weight lost, increase in muscle mass and life quality I have experienced continues to hold true. Your approach to changing the health of the world lies in the details and knowledge you hold. What I find as equally amazing, is witnessing my patients over the many years whom have gone through your program experience to the same level of length and quality of life, not to mention that you have truly motivated each and every one of them turning back the clock. Brian, you will go down in the history books as a pioneer in the preventive health care industry.”

Dr Robert Improta, MD, F.A.C.S., CEO, Pacific Institute of Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery

Knowledge, know-how, and grace are all I can say about you, my dear friend. The respect you hold within the community and within your patients’ hearts is what I strive for in my own business. What I continue to learn from you and your practice is how to be a true professional. You have taught me, by example, the importance of improving my knowledge base and always working within that knowledge base.

How can I ever thank you for, not always being there, but for the support, time, and mentorship you have given to me along the way. I am so proud to say that I am who I am today in my business due to the wonderful example you have put before me. Thanks so much, my dear friend, for everything you have done for business, my family, and me. We all love you so very much.

In Two Weeks I Was Transformed

Brian motivated me to sprint for the first time in years“I was introduced to Brian at age 68. I had not been able to do any form of strenuous exercise or practice running for more than 18 years. During my visit to Brian’s Institute, I was first evaluated and the information that was ascertained along with my medical documentation allowed Brian to design a program that would include two sessions for two weeks and a meal plan that regulated my hormonal balance. Unbelievable, is all I can say. In two weeks I was transformed to a time years ago when I happened to be training for the Olympics. The net results after this challenging fitness session was a complete transformation- my markers told the story. After being measured I was astonished. Brian was able to set my physical age to a time decades ago and the final joy for both of us happened when he motivated me to sprint. Tears of joy streamed down my face when through the “Theiss Miracle” I was reborn as a runner… as neurotransmitters sent messages throughout my body. I had received the ultimate reward a body that now had the capacity to perform at the highest levels and the net result was that I felt not 68 but youthful, happy and physically competent. ‘It was the Theiss Miracle’.”

Bill Toomey, Gold medal decathlon champion, 1968 Olympics

I am still crying! Wow… we have experienced so much together, and so fast, that I don’t even know where to begin thanking you for what you have done for me. When we first met, you asked me if I could get you to run again after 20 years of suffering from your disabling injury. The look in your eyes when you told me that you haven’t ran those past 20 years broke my heart. I thought how you must being feeling, considering that you are known for being the world’s greatest athlete, with a gold medal for the decathlon.

After spending days reviewing your medical history, and your history as the world’s greatest athlete, I knew that I would have to dig deep into your personal background if I had a chance to help you. After weeks of doing what I do, I was excited when I found out a way to overcome your physiological and biomechanical dilemma. I will remember this for the rest of my life. The day you ran again, and how you and I sat there in my facility and cried tears of joy.

You taught me that giving up is not an option, and if we search long enough, we all have the ability to find what we truly want and need. Bill, to say that we were bound together at the moment we met would be an understatement. We all love you so much, our dear friend and family member.

Adopting the Principles You Teach

Brian has produced a fantastic fitness and weight loss program“I have been very impressed with your work through TheissCare. Your thorough understanding of exercise physiology has allowed you to produce a fantastic fitness program. In my work as an orthopedic surgeon, I have never seen a program produce the results that you commonly achieve. Sports medicine physicians are adopting the principles that you teach across America. You are a true pioneer in the field of athletic training. Keep up the good work.”

Dr. John Larsen, Orthopedic surgeon, sports medicine

We hit it off from hello. I will never forget the time you came into my office. You had that look on your face of, “What am I doing here?” But after hello, we became great friends. I can’t tell you how much I have learned from observing you perform surgeries. I am still in awe.

You reinforced in me how important it is to always be your best, and to always be at the top of your game. I am also in awe of how the hospital and all the other doctors respect and hold you in such high regard. Thanks so much for always being here for my business, my family and myself. We all love you so very much, our dear friend.

A Gift to the World

Brian motivating his clients to better health, fitness and weight loss is a gift to the world“As a physician, I think that your fitness program and your work are going to revolutionize the health industry. Currently, modern medicine is really focused on fixing the body once it has broken down – cardiac bypass for coronary artery disease, gastric bypass for obesity, drugs for hypertension. The medical community always talks about “lifestyle modification” and “disease prevention” without having practical, obtainable solutions for their patients in this regard. Your approach to health and nutrition is the practical pathway to the goal of every primary physician out there who wants to prevent disease. By the time I retire, I expect to see the principles espoused by TheissCare become standard teaching in medical schools and medical residencies. Again, I cannot begin to thank you for your wonderful work. You are a gift to the world.”

Dr. Paul Dougherty, Medical director, Dougherty Laser Vision

Who would have ever guessed? When I first met you, I approached you in the local mall (without ever meeting you before) and explained how one of your employees was turning your customers away. It was so upsetting, since I knew the time and cost of having a kiosk. After a brief discussion, we both went on our ways. So, years later when I was looking for the best eye surgeon on the planet, I asked my clients who this would be, and of course, it was you. When I saw your face for the second time, I knew that we would be family forever.

Paul, my dearest friend, how can I ever thank you for the love and support that you have given to not only my family, but my business and me. You not only opened your heart to us, but you also opened your home and business to us without questioning us once. I feel so pleased and honored that you will always be in our hearts, a family member, and without question, a big part of our future. We all love you so much.

Be the Best You Can Be

Brian motivates his fitness clients to be the best that they can be“Brain Theiss reminds me of an expert diamond cutter. He evaluates each individual like an uncut diamond, seeing those hidden qualities beneath the rough exterior of each person. The ten-day transformation of mind and body is what is so amazing about the TheissCare program: buffing out those qualities to a dazzling brilliance that can only come from within you. Now the most important question to ask yourself is,” What do you do with the results you achieve?” Enjoy the happiness of being the best you can be.”

Michael Weintraub, CEO, Mr. Michael’s

I wish I had heard you coming, so I could have prepared my life, business, and family for you. You are, for sure, at the top of the list for promoting TheissCare. The clients you continually send to us are out of is this world. It’s so hard to believe that when I bought my BMW from you, that I would be getting your 30-plus years of business experience along with my pink slip. But it is even beyond that.

The love and support you provide for my family, is very comforting in today’s society, and I know that deep down in my heart that you will always be there to support and love us for many years to come. Thank you so much for giving so much to us all. You are not only a dear friend, but you are a family member. We love you so much.

Emotionally, Physically, Spiritually, Mentally

Brian motivates his fitness and weight loss clients on many levels. Physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually“I have known Brian for several years and over these years I have come to find out what a very genuine person he is. He genuinely cares about his clients emotionally, physically, spiritually and mentally and this care he shows in his clients. His caring and compassion, makes him in my eyes, a genuine human being. I am Happy to be his friend.”

Lou Ferrigno, actor, author, “Mr. Universe”

When I first met you as a boy, you were, and still are to me, a mountain of a man. I will never forget waiting in line to meet you so you could sign a poster for me. I recall thinking of all the great questions I was going to ask you, but when the time came, and I stood in front of you, I couldn’t open my big mouth to save my life. After you signed my poster, I was escorted off stage, awe struck!. And then without warning, words started pouring out of my mouth, but it was too late.

Through the years, I read about you and watched you on TV, but what impressed me the most, and still inspires me to this day, is that you have always stayed true to the lifestyle you always preached. I can’t tell you how inspiring your life has been to me. And as I get to know you more, I grow prouder in you for sticking to your morals. What you have taught me is that it will all work out when I stick to what I am passionate about. Thanks for being a good friend to me, and never forget that you will always be a true hero to me. Thanks for all the life lessons.

He Really Cares About You and Your Health

Brian knows just how to motivate you“Passion and Inspiration are words I would use to describe Brian in what he brings to the world. What I always enjoy is his infectious enthusiasm that you feel as soon as you see him. Brian is a great friend to many. Being a great friend means not being afraid to tell you how he feels about something you are doing in your life that may be bad for you and has a great talent for being able to get in your face without it being personal or feeling like he is hurting you. he really cares about you and your health. He knows just how hard to motivate you and knows when you have hit the wall.

Maxx Galster, executive-coach, consultant

Who is this guy that sits before me? I will never forget the first day you came into my office. You had that look on your face. I knew that if you didn’t start working on your health, you wouldn’t have it for long. Since that time, you have not only brought great and wonderful clients to me, but you also brought to me nothing but love and joy – into my business and my whole family.

What you have taught me, my dear friend, is how to put others before myself. Indeed, we are greater as a whole then as individuals. Maxx, thanks for treating me as a brother and doing everything you could to continually improve my business, family, and my life. I love you so much, my dearest friend.

Weight Loss Success Stories : Brian with top weight loss client

This road traveled of weight loss success stories wasn’t traveled alone. From day one to current time, I was blessed with the love and friendship of many. Therefore, I wanted to say thanks to all that have loved and supported not only myself, but also my family and my business. Keep in mind that I could write a whole book on each of these great and wonderful people.

Each one of you, I will take a piece of what you have all given to me, and hold it next to my heart for the rest of my life.

Success Story # 1

Your Training Program Saved My Life

James’s weight loss success saved his life“Brian, as you and anyone that really knows me – I am a man of little words. When I was first introduced to you and your program, I thought to myself…’if this kid can produce a fraction of what I’ve been hearing about him, for me, I’d be amused.’ Since I’ve known you over these many years – you have turned my amusement into admiration and respect. You and your program did not impact my life. It actually saved my life. You are truly a man of great action, and it has been my pleasure to watch you save so many other lives. My family and my business all thank you for giving me back my life.”

James F. Little, Chairman/President & CEO, Employers Direct

The sea parted when you came into my life. Isn’t it magical how one little dollar-mailer changed my life forever by bringing you to me. I will never forget the day when you pulled me aside and said that I had developed a very special health and wellness program, and that I needed to double the amount I was charging. And also that I needed to focus on the clients whom would appreciate the health benefits from my services. Not only did you advise me on this next step, but also you took the time to educate and direct me toward a whole new business.

You taught me how trust my own ideas and thoughts, and not to worry about what other thought or said about me. What I appreciate and admire most about you is that you have never been afraid to reprimand me when you saw me going astray. How can I ever thank you enough for the overwhelming support and friendship that you have given to my business, my family, and me? It is important to us that you know that we truly love you, my dear friend.

Success Story # 2

A Truly Life Changing Experience

Drew’s weight loss motivation was Brian“Who would have ever guessed that meeting one man could change the rest of my life? Brian Theiss of TheissCare was truly a life changing experience not only for me, for my family and friends. For those of you who are committed to maximizing your life potential and receiving results in 60 days, what it take others to achieve in 1 year!! I recommend TheissCare: I know it sounds too good to be true, but I am walking proof of what the Brian Theiss program can do.”

Drew Donen, professional auctioneer, President/Owner of “Bang The Gavel”

I will never forget the first day I met you. As I opened the door to your Bentley, you preceded to my office with grace and confidence radiating from you. For the full hour, as you sat in front of me, you watched and critiqued my every move and words, without ever being negative. After raising my blood pressure, you looked me in the eye and said: “I will never do your program for myself”.

It took me several years to fully understand why you did do my program. I now realize that you did this for me. Maybe this was your way of giving back to society, by supporting this young kid who was trying so hard to support himself, his business, and his family. I can’t thank you enough for all the love, support, and the incredible people you have brought me over the years. Thank you for giving so much to us without every asking for anything in return, and I mean never asking for anything! We love you from the bottom of our hearts, our friend and family member.

Success Story # 3

Happier, Healthier and Enjoying Life

Enjoying life is Greg’s weight loss success story“I turned 46, and it happened! I started gaining weight and losing my health. But I am a stickler for efficiency, so when Brian told me if I would give  him three hours per week, he would give me two more hours per day back: and he did it. I can now do things I haven’t been able to do for decades. I am happier, healthier and enjoy life more. Thank you Brian.”

Greg Mooers, life-coach and motivational speaker

I wish I had met you 20 years ago. The impact you had on my personal life was swift and unexpected, and I still am in the process of truly understanding the long-term effect. You taught me many critical life lessons.

The first was: we can never truly be authentic when we live our lives from the outside in. And lesson number two: living our lives from the inside out is the only way to be a true hero.

I realize these two life lessons will take me the rest of my natural life to learn. But that is OK, since I will have my great friend and mentor to help me walk this hero’s path. I want to thank you from the inside out for all that you have done for me, my family, and business. We all love you so very much.

Success Story # 4

Raising the Bar on My Own Fitness

weight loss success stories“I have practiced critical care medicine for over 30 years dealing with many ‘train wrecks’. Several years ago I refocused my medical practice to concentrate on highly personalized proactive health care. Now I concentrate on ‘fixing the tracks’. Evidence based data reveals that 70% of chronic health problems can be prevented. I have come to appreciate the importance of proper nutrition combined with a regular fitness program. The highly personalized fitness approach at TheissCare under the leadership of Brian Theiss is World Class. I am personally thankful to Brian for ‘raising the bar’ on my own fitness level and that of numerous patients.”

Dr. Paul Block, MD. FACP, FCCP

It still amazes me that one man can have such a profound impact on not only the health of so many people, but also on their personal lives. You are truly a man who puts his patients first, and for the past 35 years of practice. I wanted to thank you again for not only taking good care of my clients, but also for believing in my ability to serve my clients with the same care, love, and respect that you do.

I am so pleased to be able to work with you over these many years, and I am truly excited over what we will do together in the future. I have so much more to learn from you, my dear friend. On a personal note, thank you for all that you have done for me, and thank you for bringing me into your family and your heart. From my family to yours, we all love you very much.

A “Younger” Older Man

Weight loss success allowed David to reach back to his younger years“What you have assembled for me, and many others, is a doable, practical conceptual framework and how to approach health and well-being by integrating a measured and segmented training and exercise program combined with a diet management approach. When followed with a measure of diligence and intensity, this program has enabled me to reach back to my younger years for that sense of vitality that has me eagerly anticipating what I will do in my coming years, as ‘a younger’ older man.”

Dr. David Lacey, Senior VP, research head, Amgen

Boy, were they ever right about you. When I was first told about you, I was told what a wonderful, brilliant person and scientist you are. As I got to know you better I realized that they also left out what a powerful man you are, and also what an exceptional friend you are, too.

What I have learned from you, my dear friend, David, is the knowing that in life’s struggles, if we use our energy correctly, we can change the world in which we live. You are a great and honorable man, and I want to thank you personally for giving so much to so many around the world. Thank you, my dear friend, for what you have given my business, my family and me. I love you very much.

When I am in your presence, you instantaneously bring out of me this incredible peace and balance that relaxes me to my core.

Thank you so much for bringing more of my internal energy out so I can help more of those around me. Billy, it is because of what you have given me, that I will be able to help so many more: You are brilliant! I want you to always remember that even though you are the artist and superstar Billy Yamaguchi to the world, you will also be Billy Picasso to me! Thanks for bringing me into you world and your heart.

Success Story # 7

Transforming People

Doing greatness together is Freddie’s weight loss success story“’We are going to do greatness together!’ These were the very first words that Brian Theiss uttered in our first handshake! His passion, purpose and sincere heartfelt interest in people is legendary, and he shined his light and gift on me form that moment on. It is said that ‘knowledge is power’ but when it is combined with heart, you have a master. Brian embodies this mastery in his expertise in transforming people from overweight, tired and out of shape to glowing beings who are truly empowered. I know, he put me on his program and I am more alive today than I ever have been. I am honored to call him my health advisor and colleague but more importantly, I am blessed to call him my friend.”

Freddie Ravel, #1 recording artist and composer

The man behind the music. The first night we met, I knew there was something special about you. As I got to know you over the years, I understood why you are truly respected and loved by so many, not only in the music industry, but also by everyone around you. You have reinforced in me the knowledge that it is all about the details, and it is up to us to structure the life we want, not only for ourselves, but also for those around us.

I am so excited about what we will do together in the future, since you are part of the great future of my life. I am excited about the thousands of lives that, together, we will touch. From my family to yours, we love you all.

VO2 Max Testing

VO2 Max Testing

By measuring aerobic capacity and metabolic rates we can accurately design exercise programs for each individual based on the assessment of their personal cardio pulmonary system and their bodies’ ability to metabolize proteins, carbohydrates and fats. VO2 Max Testing is not only one of the best overall scientific evaluators of health, but a critical tool in preparing the parameters for successful and effective health and fitness programs.

What is VO2 Max testing?

VO2 Max testing is a breath-by-breath analysis of the amount of oxygen removed from one’s circulating blood and used by the working tissues during a specified period of time. It is easy and fun to do.

This test reflects the rate your body metabolizes nutritional fats and carbohydrates. It is the premium assessment of your cardio pulmonary system.

What does VO2 Max reveal?

VO2 Max testing is the best assessment of overall fitness. It reveals one’s exercise capacity and provides the target heart rate (and work zone) that an individual should train in to maximize results.

Why is VO2 Max testing important?

Maximize results with VO2 testing1. Allows for the design of fitness programs that are based on scientific criteria, eliminating guesswork

2. Determines daily caloric consumption to optimize weight management, enhancing the effectiveness of exercise objectives

3. Once an individual’s goals and objectives are determined, VO2 Max allows us to:

  • Identify training zones
  • Design programs for those zones
  • Establish specific pathways for progressive programs
  • Maximize results
  • Minimize training time

How does VO2 Max testing help me reach my fitness goals?

By knowing your training zone, you can exercise at the proper intensity and length of time for the fitness and weight management goals you set.

Who benefits from VO2 Max testing?

Anyone who desires improved results in their level of fitness or weight management will benefit. The non-exerciser or beginner looking for weight management, the fitness enthusiast desiring a safe efficient workout program with effective results, the busy executive with a limited amount of time, or the elite athlete who wants to train for competition – all will profit from programs based on the VO2 Max test numbers.


How We Live is How We Die. Obesity is the most significant contributor to increased health problems.

How We Live is How We Die. Obesity is the most significant contributor to increased health problems.

Little known to most people, the last official disease-free American died in 1951! Hard to believe, but true. By the time we die, all of us will have one or more diseases. Disease is how we die. Indeed, Americans are dying from premature illness in ever-greater numbers. The primary causes: ignorance and denial of hidden health issues.

Welcome to the world of budding boomer awareness! Given all the changes in our current world, two outcomes are still inevitable – higher taxes (to fund the health care system that America’s unhealthy trend will require) and premature death (for an aging population in deep denial). The most important question facing politicians and the health care industry is how long can we dismiss these “facts of life”… or more accurately, facts of death.

How We Die

It’s not “if”, but “when” will each of us contract our first irreversible medical condition. By the time we feel the pain that signals serious organic disease, it is often too late. I see it every day – individuals who are overweight, out of shape, taking medications – still announcing to the world they are healthy. There’s a name for this condition… D-E-N-I-A-L! Denial is how we die.


How We Die... Denial is a major factor

Denial is a strange phenomenon, and like all delusions, denial’s aftermath is always painful… and usually shocking. Someone once wrote, “Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who could not hear the music.” Those of us who do not hear and heed the music of our bodies will stop dancing long before those who do.

While talking recently with an engaging friend of mine, he posed a probing question: “Is it true,” he asked, “that if we know our genetics, we can predict our death date?” The answer is somewhat complicated. Yet, if we can measure both our genetic predispositions and measure the impact of our lifestyle choices, it is true that we CAN reasonably predict our death date. Go online and google “life predictor” and fill in the numbers!

Lifestyle Choices

How We Die... Our lifestyles are killing usPoor lifestyle choices will hasten our deaths. Science now suggests that lifestyle is the number one killer known to man. We read that heart disease, cancer, and prescription drugs are the biggest killers in the United States, yet these death threats are all by-products of lifestyle choices – primarily poor nutrition and lack of exercise. Our lifestyle determines how we die.

From even a corporate perspective, there’s a bottom line benefit connected to health issues. Improving company health and fitness levels can strategically boost performance, thus trimming both the waistline and expenses in the workplace. A magazine article stated,

“Currently 20% of Americans have high blood pressure, 105 million Americans have high cholesterol, and there are 800 thousand new cases of adult-onset diabetes a year, plus 65% of Americans are overweight or obese.”

How we die… Our lifestyles are killing us!

These are shocking numbers. The article continues,

How we die... Obesity has become the number one killer“Obesity is an epidemic in our country and requires dramatic attention be given its adverse effects. Statistics show obese individuals have 30-50% more chronic health issues versus those who smoke and drink heavily. More than smoking or drinking, obesity is now considered the most significant contributor to increased health problems and rising health care costs in the U. S.”

The article proposed that companies begin to manage their executives’ and employees’ personal health. You can bet, in our current economic environment, if individuals don’t manage their own health, the insurance companies will.

Having worked in the health and fitness field all my adult life, I am well aware of these facts of modern life. I am well aware of how we die. The bad news is: all of us are born with genetic time bombs of illness and death wired into our systems. The good news is: 80% to 90% of all premature illness is preventable by daily lifestyle choices. But the news is even better! The science of how we die and how the body responds to its environment has advanced so much over the past 50 years that even those born with dispositions to succumb to premature illness can outlive their genetic time bombs by making conscious lifestyle choices and engaging in healthy habits.

Genetics Loads the Gun, but Lifestyle Pulls the Trigger

We now have what no generation before us has ever had – the knowledge of how life can trump disease and premature death. Think about that. We are living in the first era in history where it is possible to enjoy disease-free lives! To control how we die. This knowledge may sound theoretical – to you, but not to me. Over the last 25 years, I’ve transformed my life and the lives of thousands. In truth, I’ve actually saved hundreds of lives. Yours may be next. This is your introduction to that process.

Brian with Dr. Paul Block, MD. FACP, FCCP

Brian with Dr. Paul Block, MD. FACP, FCCP

I currently serve a business and professional clientele. For years I trained amateur and professional athletes (major league baseball, hockey, cycling, and other sports), but I shifted the focus of my work… and for a very specific reason. The tipping point was when I realized that aging was a choice, and I recognized how the importance of commitment affected that choice. My goal was to not only help, but to save as many lives as possible. It broke my heart to witness so many young people, including athletes, losing their health due to poor lifestyle choices. More and more, I am seeing clients in their 30’s, 40’s, and 50’s contracting degenerative diseases that I used to help my clients in their 70’s and 80’s to overcome. I have devoted my life to those who are committed to reversing the causes of premature illness and death. Generally, it takes a more mature person to live a healthy life.

Brian with Lou Ferrigno, Actor, Author, “Mr. Universe”

Brian with Lou Ferrigno, Actor, Author, “Mr. Universe”

In longevity, as in business, commitment is vital. I am witness to what made many successful in their professional endeavors – many, masters of their crafts. They are people who demand results and refuse mediocrity. They are always looking for the highest return on their investments. Such people can apply this same skill-set to their health. As someone said, most of us dig our graves with our forks and knifes! Many successful people have learned the hard way that neglecting proper diet and exercise will ensure a poor return on life’s most important investment… health.

Sustainable Self Discipline

At TheissCare, we develop Sustainable Self Discipline — what some clients call a medical miracle. This Sustainable Self Discipline achieves simply unbelievable results. For years, I have worked with the medical community on a daily basis, and thanks to our scientifically measurable outcomes, I can’t count the number of doctors that send us their patients and come to me for their own health. TheissCare is a first in the history of health, actually bridging the gap between traditional medicine and the health and fitness industry. That is why I have a proven track record with clients from all over the world.

What Makes TheissCare Unique and Different? 

My approach to preventing premature aging and illness and is to build a comprehensive program for each client that generates unprecedented and measurable results. Our programs are clinically proven and are based on a solid foundation of science. To achieve this, I measure and record every aspect of a client’s metabolism and hormonal balance throughout the process, using the latest scientific equipment. Today, TheissCare is the most comprehensive non-medical health and fitness program in the country. The results we produce in 60 days exceed what our competitors produce in 12 months.

My staff and I are committed to giving back to our clients the health they have lost along their life path. We focus on key components that determine how long a client will live and the quality of his or her life. To do this, I use a controlled, private environment and work with every individual in a unique way. I am also able to work with each client virtually, wherever in the world they may be, through my online fitness, mentor, monitor and personal training program.

The 3 Factors

The three components we measure are: metabolism, lipolysis and homeostasis. It took many years of study to truly grasp the full significance of these three factors. I know them first hand — through my own rehab and my work with thousands of clients. We do personal research and scientific testing for everyone who enrolls at TheissCare. We design a unique program for each individual, specifically formulated to meet their needs, based on their metabolic start point. Our client files offer astounding statistical proof of improvements in every measurement category and are simply too numerous to list.

How We Live

Health is now a runaway political and economic issue. Every week it seems like we are being presented with increasingly gloomy news. The U.S. health care system is predicted to bankrupt the nation within our lifetimes. If obesity continues at the same rate that it’s rising today, our system will run out of money within 15 years! And obesity is only one issue. One out of every three Americans will die of heart disease, and their treatment will cost taxpayers (that means all of us!) $260 billion every year.

Investing in Our Health

Generally, it takes a more mature person to live a healthy life. Truly successful people understand that the key investment in their retirement portfolio is their health. They understand the dollars and cents of it – that the personal and collective neglect of health will cost them extraordinary sums via taxes, health insurance, and out-of-pocket expenses. In other words, health, in one form or another, is the greatest expense most people will ever bear.

How has TheissCare Impacted Your Life? 

So many have invested time and money on health programs that, sadly, have yielded minimal lasting returns. Thus, my high-achievement clients are drawn by TheissCare’s guarantee of measurable results. I am very clear about what we offer because I know what works. If your current wellness program does not create higher set-points for your metabolism, lipolysis, and homeostasis, then you risk losing 90% of any lasting benefits. Unless a program is custom designed to meet your needs and monitored and adjusted throughout, you will simply not get the results you are looking for. Without this scientific personalization and tracking, for every hour you devote to your exercise and wellness program, you achieve only FIVE TO TEN MINUTES of lasting, measurable benefits. This is an unacceptable return on any investment!

We are living in a time of tremendous breakthroughs in every field. In order to take part in those evolving benefits, all of us are being forced to offload mistaken and limited concepts of the past. A truly motivating thought comes from motivational author Alvin Toffler, who wrote, “The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read, but those who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn.”

I hope this article touches that part of your highest self that motivates you to grow – to take control of your energy, health, and life – because if you do not, someone called a health-care provider will! At this point, it’s still your choice…

Health Tips : A Healthy Lifestyle Begins with These 7 Healthy Habits

Health Tips : A Healthy Lifestyle Begins with These 7 Healthy Habits

Health Tips – 7 Healthy Habits for a Healthy Lifestyle

#1 Healthy Habit : Regular exercise – consisting of some form of cardio workout 5-7 days per week for 30 minutes, plus resistive exercise for 45-60 minutes for 5 days per week.

#2 Healthy Habit : Maintain proper weight (We don’t refer to scale weight alone. We are concerned with weight in pounds of fat. If a person has over 25 pounds on their frame, they are considered over-fat,  a better measurement of health than weight alone.)

#3 Healthy Habit : Eat healthy snacks: The purpose of snacks is to regulate insulin levels and to keep the body in the constant mode of burning fat.

#4 Healthy Habit : Eat breakfast every morning: Breakfast is to start your metabolism and, like snacks, regulate insulin levels to burn fat.

#5 Healthy Habit : Use little to no alcohol: One glass of alcohol is the daily limit, but none is better (alcohol promotes the desire to eat and adds substantial sugar and calories).

#6 Healthy Habit : Sleep 7-8 uninterrupted hours per night m(best to go to sleep and wake up at the same time each day).

#7 Healthy Habit : Don’t smoke: Smoking is the number one lifestyle habit that shortens life and accelerates aging quicker than any other lifestyle habit.

(Keep in mind that obesity will surely surpass smoking in coming years.)

Healthy Habits Combat the Negative Effects of Aging

This list of 7 healthy habits for a healthy lifestyle is simple enough, right? Then why is it so hard to incorporate these healthy habits into our everyday lives? Because we do not truly understand that the aging process is a disease, and we need to combat its negative effects on a daily basis. Once we reach the second phase of physiological life (around age of 21!) our bodies make a cellular decision to fight to live or slowly relax and die.

Once we stop consciously promoting the process of living, the body goes into its program mode, and begins the normal (but unnatural) process of slow but- steady death. To sidestep this primary fact requires that we remain in a powerful state of denial. How amazing this simple 7-step healthy habits list is. If science could take any one of these seven healthy habits and turn it into a drug, it would be called a “wonder drug”! This is the “wonder” of choice!

Healthy Habits Effect Your Biological Aging Process

Please look over the chart of these seven healthy habits for a healthy lifestyle, and ask yourself how many factors have you have adhered to for 6 -12 months, and then look at the biological difference. For example, let’s assume you are a 50 years old, and you have adopted 0 to 2 of the seven healthy lifestyle habits for 6 -12 months. You then have the biological age of 72! Congratulations, you’ve accelerated your biological aging process by 22 years! How do you feel about that?

Health Tips Chart : Healthy Habits for a Healthy Lifestyle

Health Tips Chart : Healthy Habits for a Healthy Lifestyle

But thank goodness, there is another side to this. Let us take the same situation, but this time looking at the impact of following all seven healthy lifestyle habits for 6 -12 months. Anyone who had done that would have the biological age of 35 years! Wonderful, you’ve reversed the aging process by 15 years! Again, if you practice most, or all of the healthy lifestyle habits, you will reduce your biological age, and the benefits will be a longer and higher quality life!

It’s wonderful that we are learning so much about the positive effects of controlling our health. All we need to do is get the correct personal information about how we fit into this chart. Once we have the information on how to finally get our genetics and personal effort to work for us, instead of against us, we can begin to measure and manage our own health and excel throughout our golden years.

Healthy Habits to Live Longer and Healthier

If you are not excited about this information, then you need to read it again. Even more exciting, the advances in medicine and public health over the last decade offer further hope for our prospects. For the first time in history, we have the power to have our 60’s and 70’s be a new beginning, not the beginning of the end.

The Effects of Healthy Habits : What 50 Years Old Looks Like Today!

The Effects of Healthy Habits : What 50 Years Old Looks Like Today!

Think about the possibility that we can live longer and healthier than any generation before. We now have the ability to focus on our health-span when our predecessors could only deal with their life span. We also have the ability to focus on active life expectancy, years we can expect to live without chronic functional impairments.

The purpose of this article on the 7 healthy habits for a healthy lifestyle is not only to help you to prevent premature illness, aging, and death, but also to extend your active life with the emerging health information I’ve collected over these 30+ years. I will do my best to help you measure and manage all the key factors that can help you improve your health. It is the sum of this personal information that will determine 80-90% of your life span. NO JOKE!

Disease Progression - The 7 Stages of Disease

Disease Progression – The 7 Stages of Disease

It takes energy to make energy – and that’s why our mental and physical laziness eventually leads to atrophy. The first step in atrophy is the body’s inefficiency to burn fat, leading to toxic fat – which is a major organic pollutant– which further inhibits the body from performing its natural function of regeneration of muscle mass and supplying energy. I am not a medical doctor, and I have not collected the scientific data to prove on a molecular level how degeneration takes place. However, I do see the empirical effects of diet and exercise on a daily basis. This is what I see.

The build up of toxins shows up in both the body and mind. Lethargy and depression are common in people whose systems are overworked with the process of storing and maintaining fat. Because I burn most all of my daily food-fuel, I sleep only 3-5 hours a night. I don’t need more sleep because my body metabolism is so efficient, and I don’t have all the pollution in my system. Therefore, my body doesn’t need to expend as much energy in constant detoxing. Constant digestion is a result of both overeating and improper diet. Digestion requires a significant amount of energy – which is thereby not available for metabolic efficiency. If your body can’t process enough toxins (in order to cleanse and heal itself), the body can’t be efficient at sustaining and re-creating itself. Thus, due to compromised systems, most people reach a state of atrophy well before their natural time.

When the blood, lymph nodes, and tissues of the body become toxic, the entire body is under stress. Tiredness and sluggishness are symptoms of the onset of this internal bodily stress. This negative physical state directly affects one’s mental and emotional condition, and this shows up as confliction, confusion, depression, lack of will power, and lack of creativity (which is a major concern of employers in the workplace).

When we need to heal ourselves of toxins, we sometimes create a fever in order to burn impurities in the system. Inflammation is the body’s most intense effort to cleanse itself. The root “itis” means inflammation. It’s kind of like smelling salts – even an unconscious person will wake up when smelling salts are used because the salts are such powerful irritants. Pain is the body’s most effective warning sign.

Inflammation, if unhealed, over time doesn’t allow the cells to communicate. This is what cancer is. Medical science is now recognizing that 80-90% of diseases come through internal and external environmental toxins. Cancer is not primarily genetic. Actually, life is only one thing – a controlled state of disease. If the body controls its constituent systems, one can live a happy and healthy life right up to the time of “natural” death. If our control mechanism fails, we lapse into disease and begin the slow-but-steady spiral downward into unnatural and premature death.

Disease never sneaks up and strikes us down. It takes a long time of neglect and repeated abuse of the body before disease takes over. Each stage progresses slowly and in a predictable manner. We can be in one of the stages of disease for weeks, months, or even years before we progress to the next stage. At any time during the first six stages, if the cause is stopped then the disease subsides and our health returns to normal. If drugs are used to stop the pain and discomfort, but avoids curing the underlying problem, then the disease will continue, even though we experience no pain, thus giving the false impression that the disease is diminishing. According to the latest research, here’s how the seven stages of disease progress.

#1 : Low Energy

Low Energy is the 1st stage of the 7 stages of disease progression

Low Energy is the 1st stage of the 7 stages of disease progression

The first of the 7 stages of disease progression is low energy or enervation. The word enervation comes from the word energy, and energy is the essence of all life. Our whole existence depends on how much energy is available at any given time to fuel our trillions upon trillions of chemical reactions. Every one of those trillions of reactions requires a massive amount of energy.

Enervation: is a condition in which the body either is not generating sufficient energy for the task it must perform or the tasks the body must perform are greater then the normal energy supply can cope with. When this occurs the body becomes impaired and generates even less energy.

When less energy is available for bodily functions, including metabolism, toxins from metabolic waste start to build up in the cells of the body. A small amount of toxins in the body is normal. Problems arise when more toxins are being produced than eliminated. This toxification results in the further inability of the body to restore depleted energy, and the body starts to slow and shut down.

Since energy is restored when we sleep, the first warning sign that we are becoming enervated is that we will become tired and sluggish or require naps during the day or more sleep at night. Another sign that the body is in distress (trying to heal itself) is the loss of appetite. This loss of appetite can be seen through all stages of disease.

#2 : Toxic Build-Up

Toxic build-up is the 2nd stage of the 7 stages of disease progression

Toxic build-up is the 2nd stage of the 7 stages of disease progression

Toxic build up, or toxemia occurs when un-eliminated toxic material from trillions of metabolic process starts to saturate the blood, lymph nodes and tissues of the body. The body recognizes this situation must be remedied and attempts to cleanse itself and initiates a flushing-out of toxins.

  1. The first sign of increased build up of toxins in the body is mere discomfort.
  2. The second sign is further drain on the body’s energy supply, as the feeling of tiredness and sluggishness becomes more pronounced.

When the level of toxemia has reached the point where such toxins must be eliminated, the next stage of disease develops: fever. Fever is the universal sign that insufficient toxins are being removed. To prevent structural damage, the body increases its temperature to literally burn toxins. Fever is an activity of the body initiated for the express purpose of protecting itself.

Metabolism is therefore accelerated by increasing the amount of heat available, thus enhancing the healing process. The heat from fever is necessary to accelerate the elimination of toxins. Fever acts as a catalyst, which causes the toxins to be diluted and pass into the blood stream to the bowels, bladder, lungs and skin for elimination.

We can see fever in stages 2-7 of disease.

#3 : Irritation

Irritation is the 3rd stage of the 7 stages of disease progression

Irritation is the 3rd stage of the 7 stages of disease progression

The third of the 7 stages of disease progression is designed to make us more aware that toxins are rising to a higher level and is an attempt to convince us to remedy the situation. Irritation isn’t usually so painful that we want to call the doctor, but it is so uncomfortable that it becomes harder to ignore.

Irritation is a condition in which the body sets its defensive mechanism into motion and speeds up its internal activities in order to unload stored-up toxins.

The two most common signs of irritation are the urge to urinate or have a bowel movement. If these two signs are ignored, it becomes so painful that your body will relieve itself. Another warning sign of irritation and toxemia is itchiness. The skin is largest organ of elimination, made up of 4 billion pores. So, if any part of the body becomes itchy, it is a classic sign that toxins are being removed.

At this stage of disease progression, one may experience nausea, queasiness, tickling of the nose, uneasiness, or feel short-tempered, aggravated, and nervous. We feel irritated because our bodies are in a state of irritation. It’s just that simple. Depression, anxiety, continued worry, stress, headaches, and even minor aches and pains are symptoms. Difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep become challenges… and then, of course, there’s the red flashing warning sign – weight gain.

When the effects of enervation, toxemia, and irritation are ignored long enough, and the toxic residue that started the whole process in motion builds to an even higher concentration, the fourth stage of disease progression results.

#4 : Inflammation

Inflammation is the 4th stage of the 7 stages of disease progression

Inflammation is the 4th stage of the 7 stages of disease progression

The fourth stage of disease progression is inflammation. Inflammation is the body’s most intense effort to cleanse and restore itself. When this process occurs, you become keenly aware that a problem exists, for it involves pain.

Pain is designed to protect us and warn us when our health and perhaps very existence are at risk. Pain is the body’s most effective warning sign.

By the time of inflammation, the toxins in the system have usually concentrated in a particular organ or area of the body – for a massive eliminative effort. The area becomes inflamed due to the constant irritation from toxic material.

When inflammation exists, we are diagnosed with one or more of the “itises.” “Itises” used at the end of organ-words means inflammation.

  • Tonsillitis: inflammation of the tonsils
  • Appendicitis: inflammation of the appendices
  • Hepatitis: inflammation of the liver
  • Nephritis: inflammation of kidneys
  • Arthritis: inflammation of the joints
  • Colitis: inflammation of the colon
  • Rhinitis: inflammation of the sinus cavity
  • Dermatitis: inflammation of the skin
  • Lymphadenitis: inflammation of the lymph nodes or glands

Swollen lymph nodes or glands are the bodies’ most obvious warning signs that a cleansing of built-up toxins is overdue.

At this point in the 7 stages of disease, if corrective actions are taken to lower the toxic levels, the body will clear itself of these harmful toxins. However, people often don’t take action at this critical time, and some will take drugs – which suppress the painful symptoms, without addressing the underlining problems. Therefore, toxicity will continue to increase until secondary organs become affected – not only by the primary toxins, but from the additional toxins created by the drugs.

Stage four of disease progression is a pivotal juncture. Action taken at this point determines whether or not one is going to recover and return to a state of health or fall deeper into the disease.

#5 : Ulceration

Ulceration is the 5th stage of the 7 stages of disease progression

Ulceration is the 5th stage of the 7 stages of disease progression

The fifth stage in the 7 stages of disease progression is ulceration. Ulceration occurs when the body has been under assault for extended periods of time and massive amounts of cells and tissue are being destroyed.

Ulceration is intensely painful because of exposed nerves. For example, a stomach ulcer – a hole in the stomach – can be literally opened up, releasing toxins directly onto the exposed nerves. Another form of ulceration is canker sores on the mouth.

While the body may use an ulcer as an outlet to rid itself of toxins, the body will still heal the ulcer if the level of toxemia is sufficiently lowered.

#6 : Scarring

Scarring is the 6th stage of the 7 stages of disease progression

Scarring is the 6th stage of the 7 stages of disease progression

Induration is a form of scarring, which is hardening of tissues or the filling- in of tissue where it has been lost, such as with an ulcer.

Though painful, this hardening has real direction and purpose. The toxic material that is threatening the well-being of the body is encapsulated in a sac of hardened tissue. This is the body’s way of quarantining toxic material, holding it in one place so it will not spread freely throughout the body. The sac is a type of tumor and is often diagnosed as cancer when, in fact, no cancer exists.

Induration is the last stage during which the body is still in control of its cells. If the destructive practices that brought matters to this stage are allowed to continue, cells will start to go crazy. They will become parasites, living off whatever nutrients they can obtain, but contributing nothing to the body in return. This constant poisoning has at last alerted the genetic encoding system, and cells become wild and disorganized. This condition is called cancer.

#7 : Cancer

Cancer is the 7th stage of the 7 stages of disease progression

Cancer is the 7th stage of the 7 stages of disease progression

Cancer is the end point in the long evolution of disease progression, and if the original toxins that caused it remain in sufficient density, stage 7 of the stage of disease is usually fatal. At this point, body vitality is at a very low level. Cells are no longer under the brain’s control, but are multiplying wildly in an unorganized manner.

In the best of circumstances, employing a healthy regimen, cancer can be arrested and reversed; it usually takes a diligent, concentrated effort to eradicate. Thus, cancer is often the toxic and unnatural end to toxic and unnatural living. Some people cannot avoid the disease, but many can avoid or postpone it. As terrible and dreaded as the cancer is, the essential fact is – in the first stages – cancer is usually a matter of choice!

Brian shows me what to do during my online fitness training

Brian coaches me…

Brian Theiss of TheissCare, LLC is the number 1 Executive Health and Wellness Consultant in the world as voted by the International Sports Sciences Association. I sat down with him to discuss the new online fitness, mentor, monitor and personal training program that he has recently made available to his clients worldwide. Brian can now mentor, monitor and train with his clients “virtually”, from anywhere in the world that they may be. At home, in the office, in a hotel room, at a gym, at the beach, and even on the moon when they arrive; ANYWHERE!! I interviewed a couple of his current clients to get their opinions on the online fitness, mentor, monitor and personal training program sessions. The videos of those interviews are below.

I have personally been guided and mentored by Brian both in-person at his TheissCare facility and at my professional office. I can attest to how incredible his online fitness, mentor, monitor and personal training program is-second to none. The convenience, the time it saves, the privacy, the money saved and most importantly the results. Physically, I am leaner and for the first time in my life I have some muscle definition. Health wise, my cholesterol levels and blood pressure are perfect. My endurance, strength, and energy levels are through the roof.

Then I do it from wherever I am

Then I do it… from wherever I may be!

My productivity at work and my productivity in my personal life has increased ten-fold. Overall, those around me constantly comment on how much happier I am, and I am, and I contribute this paradigm shift to the significant increase in energy that I attainted in the first week working with Brian. I would also like to add how wonderful I feel in my new mind and body; not only do I feel good, but I feel good about myself and isn’t that what it’s all about?

I started his online fitness, mentor, monitor and personal training program working with only my body weight (that was all my beat up and abused body could handle). I have since graduated to a small set of dumbbells. I still see Brian at his facility on occasion, mostly just to be able to give him a hug and thank him for all he has done for me. Personally, I love the online fitness, mentor, monitor and personal training program sessions. The results that I have been able to achieve working with Brian online, wherever I may be, are simply amazing!

1) Tell me a little bit about your online fitness, mentor, monitoring and training program?

The online fitness, mentor, monitor and personal training program we provide is a backdrop to sustainable self-discipline. The online training program aspect of what we do is pretty fascinating and it’s fascinating for all the right reasons. The biggest reason why it’s fascinating is the cost saving in money and time. When we are engaged, through the online video conferencing and building your sustainable self-discipline program you literally don’t have to travel anywhere. Imagine that… you can literally get up, brush your hair, brush your teeth, clean your eyes and you are ready to go!

There is little downtime to none and its highly effective. And yes, even if you have no weights other than your body, that is fine too. You would not believe the lives I have saved and changed by understanding the science of the body and leveraging it to slow or reverse the aging process. How we can manipulate your body, get it moving and get your metabolism back into the shape it was years ago while all along increasing your circulation, is top rate; all done through online video conferencing. There is literally very little difference of an individual working in front of me in person or working in front of me through online video conferencing. I have been able to master the transfer of information so the client experience is all the same. Remember, if your eyes see it and your ears hear it, your mind will believe it to be true because your spirit, brain, and body overlap at the mind. So that is another great advantage of having an online video conferencing aspect.

Again, no downtime here and super private and convenient and by the time I am done monitoring and mentoring you through video conferencing, your health history etc. has been updated and every aspect of your progress and program moving forward has already been sent to you. Remember, no downtime and super convenient and super effective. Can you imagine a world of all these online aspects of physical health, longevity and personal relevance? That’s my stance on that.

2) As far as equipment, what is needed? Or can you start out with just their body?

Most of my online fitness program clients start out using only their bodies and body weight, which bewilders them. The wonderful part about that is they don’t even realize what is possible. They don’t realize that they can manipulate their body as an extremely effective device. They don’t realize that they can literally “leverage themselves” to improve their overall health and use what God and the universe gifted them, a physical body: two legs, two arms, ten fingers, ten toes a mind and a soul and the ability to smile; you can create anything with all that and that’s saying a lot.

Kevin Sharer discusses his experience training at TheissCare

3) What do they need? Do they need a smart phone? Do they need a computer?

The online fitness program aspect of it is typically done utilizing some form of video conferencing device; computer, tablet or a smart phone. Predominantly my client’s preference is working with a smart phone.

Clients are individually creative. I have one client that I follow all over the world and he takes me to the most amazing locations with some of the most beautiful gyms I have ever seen. He just sets up wherever he goes when he travels and presto we are on.

I have another client that travels all over the country to and we literally have a talk. But before he departs I establish a travel program based on location, altitude and weather he’s going to be utilizing a gym facility or if he’s going to work on the beach with just his body. After each set he hangs up and then calls me back and we off to the races once again. The flexibility for the clients is incredible.

The online fitness program aspects is exactly like the TheissCare program and produces sustainable outcomes every single time. Again, ease of use, no downtime and highly, highly effective.

4) What type of questions do you get from clients?

Questions that come up from clients are very interesting but it’s more of their comments that hit home… “I can’t believe how easy this is. I can’t believe how effective this is. How could I have gone through my whole life not having TheissCare’s online fitness program’s unique features”. Even though their questions very, it’s always their praise and the amazement of it that is constant.

5) What are they amazed by?

"Even though we love you, we don’t have to travel to you anymore."

“Even though we love you, we don’t have to travel to you anymore.”

Their amazement always comes with a personal price to me. And sometimes this price hurts my feelings. Clients express their pleasure with my unique approach in this way; even though we love you, we don’t have to travel to you anymore. That’s a blessing in disguise, right? Honestly, I love the fact that the TheissCare program is so effective at producing sustainable self-discipline that clients come to see me, to bond with me as authentic people. I am always beside myself knowing that my clients want to come see me, and not because they need to come see me… I truly love them all.

Another constant praise among TheissCare clients is, how bewildered they are at how effective and how efficient the online fitness program is and how cost effect the program is in both money and time savings; time is money right? If I can save you an hour and a half of running around or save you a week or two of traveling to work with me, That’s huge.

Another constant TheissCare clients like, is the fact that they don’t have any other eye’s observing them. When I am able to mentor and monitor them from the comfort of their own homes or hotel with just their body weight or a couple of dumbbells, not only do they get to avoid getting super fancy for others, but they are able to be themselves and they work harder and learn more because they go within. They can throw on shorts and a t-shirt and they are ready to go at it. Once they are done, they literally just pop right into the shower. At least I hope they are!

6) Let’s talk about the privacy aspect…

My client’s continual privacy is of the utmost important to me and I go to great lengths to keep it that way; private. In the process of mentoring and monitoring my clients I learn more about them, then most, from a medical health state to a personal life state. So, with total privacy clients are able to freely express to me events about their lives and what is happening within their lives, that they want no one else to hear. One of the most effective but costly feature TheissCare provides to each client is, during their time with me there is absolutely no one around me. It is me and them. It is their time and their space made for them. All their personal information is stored in an offsite safe location. The only others who know about their personal life are typically their healthcare providers and their spouses.

7) What type of results? Are you seeing the same type of results from the online fitness program as the in-person? Are you still achieving the same results in the same amount of time?

Brian trains a client in Alaska from his Woodland Hills, CA training facility

That’s a really great question about results. The clients that TheissCare cater to are predominately business professionals. Their results aren’t measured in the size of their biceps. It’s not necessarily how flat their stomachs are either, even though most obtain this as a byproduct of becoming super healthy. The results that matter most to them are true drops in fat mass, drops in blood pressure, drops in medications and increase in energy, increase in productivity, increase in focus, increased concentration but most important is the increase in their relevance. These results in my clients are always through the roof. I see these measured results every single day.

Talk about results. Before we started our interview I just finished with a great client from Alaska. It is so remote where he is, they don’t even name the place. It’s by coordinance (70.304,209 latitude, 151.150,0550 longitude Kuukpik Pad Near the village of Nuiqsut). He is already down 35 pounds all by the online fitness, mentor, monitor and personal training program. He works these incredible hours, about 18 hours almost every single day. He’s an engineer and a supervisor and he’s responsible for 450 employees constantly, so he can’t afford not to be his best. He’s a machine that needs to be ready to run 24-7 and none stop. What we have been able to provide for him is what we talked about, measured results that he uses every day.

If you are not healthy in his environment, you are never going to survive 18 hours a day. It will literally beat you in days. That is why a lot of the employees that come in are only good for 2 years because this lifestyle, if you are not healthy, creates such a toll on your body that it breaks you and when you are broken they send you home. Because my client is 100% committed I will aid him in extending his working career working “the river” for years to come.”The river” is a term they have come up with working in this extreme environment and this extreme remote place, and you guested it, the most extreme surroundings. This river is constantly rolling like rapids that never seems to end.

Dr. Alice Pien discusses her experience training at TheissCare

8) This isn’t about Hans & Franz: Pump You Up from Saturday night live is it?

The only results that matter start within the complex chemistry from the inside of your 100 trillion cells. From working within we are able to control the aging process and fight off Illness, dysfunction, disease progression, and yes premature aging and death. All negative side effects that accompanies you when you are actually aging biologically faster than you are chronologically aging; you are biologically aging way above your calendar years, so your cells are dying off faster than they can be replaced. That is where the big benefit comes in from a TheissCare online fitness program. Think about this. Can you imagine how you would look and feel and how your life would drastically change if you were 5 to 20 years biologically younger in a very short period of time? Could you imagine the possibilities of what you would be able to do? How your thoughts would change and how all your actions would change? Imagine how your whole life is going to change. I am so blessed by God since I have had the honor and privilege to work and be witness to this miracle of over 19,000 successful, documented times.

The success of TheissCare clients have more to do with each client then it has to do with me; they do the work. I simply provide the years of experience with solid science and the most favorable environment that is conducive based on their physiology, biology, chemistry and their medical history and lifestyle. Every online fitness, mentor, monitor and personal training program pertains to each client specifically. With that said, they have to show up for themselves. If they don’t show up I’m useless; good looking, but useless. However, If I do anything well, it’s that I care.

Craig Marshall discusses his experience training at TheissCare

9) Who is this online fitness, mentor, monitor and personal training program for?

Another great and profound question with two key parts.

Brian working with client "virtually" via his online fitness, mentor, monitoring and training program

Brian working with client “virtually” via FaceTime

The TheissCare program is for those who quit too soon on about everything and are ready to do something about it. And for those individuals whose lives are bigger than themselves. They are responsible for children, spouses, employees, and business of every conceivable size and the forward momentums of each and every one of these responsibilities and some. It’s sad that in the process of providing for so many they all end up with the same disease. Their disease is they give up their lives for the betterment of others and because of that, these individuals have quit on their health 1000 different times.

But, their knowledge and experience has made them wise and with this wisdom they see the writing on the walls. They watched their parents and their grandparents and other people they love around them suffer. They have watched the younger generations suffer decades ahead of life’s schedule. Not only the suffering they have witness, but they have been witness to the financial cost of suffering and it’s a big one. These individuals have determined based on their wisdom that they don’t want to suffer and they also don’t want to acquire the expense of suffering and the loss of quality of life.

They come to TheissCare because they want to delay or reverse the aging process and recapture as much youth and health before it’s unattainable. Keep in mind. If we don’t watch it and we don’t control our health and vitality of life we lose our relevance. And once we lose our relevance we lose our desire to live. Mind you, even TheissCare clients who are in the right mentoring and monitoring training program and who have mastered sustained self-discipline will eventually be taken over by aging. It’s the extra 5, 10, 20 years of great life, longevity and relevance that keeps them committed to themselves…

I’ll take that any day, wouldn’t you?

The Aging Process... Chronological Aging versus Biological Aging. Can you reverse the aging process?

The Aging Process… Chronological Aging versus Biological Aging. Can you reverse the aging process?

None of us like getting old. The process of aging is annoying, uncomfortable, and it just plain hurts. New research on aging shows that regardless of how old you are, you can greatly improve or reverse the aging process. Let’s begin with some definitions. What is chronological aging and what is biological aging?

Chronological Age

Chronological Age is measured by earth revolutions around the sun. This is the one we’re all most familiar with. Because it’s easy and familiar, everyone has a chronological age. Many tests and programs are based around it.

Is this really a good measure of age in a technologically evolving world?

There are big problems with measuring age chronologically. All it says is you were born x years, or earth-sun rotations, ago. Considering that the aging process is different for everyone, biological aging would be a better method of measure

Biological Age

Biological aging can be reversed with specific exercise & nutrition.

Biological aging can be reversed with specific exercise & nutrition.

Biological Age is defined as an individual’s development based on biomarkers. A biomarker is a recordable molecular or cellular event. Here we’re looking at the individuals as they are, not necessarily when they were born. This is biological aging.

Humans, in most cases, follow the same biological path. For example, the easiest one that comes to mind is the beginning of puberty. More complicated ones exist, such as increases and decreases in human growth hormone, myelination events in the brain, and the degradation of certain tissues as you get older.

The great news is, we can significantly slow or even reverse biological aging through a combination of specific exercise, nutrition, and lifestyle. But what is the combination that will deliver the optimum results? Can we reverse the aging process by 10, 20, 30 or more biological years? Again, the answer is YES.

The 5 Theories of The Aging Process

In the fight against aging, most of us need all the help we can get. Little do we know that there are many factors that can contribute to aging that we can work to control.

The following are the five theories anti-aging experts attribute to its causes, amplification and prevention.

  1. Inflammation The activation of the immune system—due to an infection, allergen or toxin—leads to internal inflammation at the cellular level. Poor nutrition, too little sleep, and radiation are common culprits of low-grade inflammation, which has been linked to arthritis, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease and heart disease.
  2. Lifestyle What we eat (too much sugar, fat and sodium), drink (too much soda, juice, etc.), do (get overstressed, work too much), don’t do (exercise or sleep enough), and what we expose ourselves to can speed up the aging process and the development of chronic diseases.
  3. Hormones Levels of estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, thyroid and/or human growth hormone drop as we age. But by increasing these all-important biochemicals, it may be possible to improve health and forestall the aging process. A controversial approach, hormone therapy, requires oversight by an experienced physician.
  4. Antioxidants Call it the “rusting” theory. As we get older, we’re subject to oxidative stress, the byproduct of free-radical damage, a natural process in which unstable molecules disrupt cell and tissue functioning. Antioxidants such as vitamins A, C, and E, glutathione and alpha lipoic acid can help protect cells.
  5. Detoxification When the body can’t rid itself of toxins, including high amounts of sugar, trans fat, mercury and chemicals we ingest from our food, its equilibrium is impaired, leading to fatigue, poor skin, heart disease, cancer and more. Detoxification and inflammation are closely linked.

Cutting Edge Research on Aging

A groundbreaking study called the New Zealand Longitudinal Study of Aging confirms people age at different rates. It turns out your chronological age is just a number! More importantly, your biological age can reveal a great deal about your general health and the rate at which you are aging. This study was different than other research on aging. The scientists’ objective was to reveal more about the aging process in younger people, and therefore provide a foundation for devising preventative therapies for age-related diseases.

During this research on aging nearly 1,000 subjects born in New Zealand in 1972 and 1973 were measured for 18 different biological markers over a period of almost 40 years. Each marker is a piece of the aging puzzle. The ‘health’ of each participant’s pulmonary, periodontal, cardiovascular, renal, hepatic, and immune systems were assessed using these biomarkers. With these results, researchers calculated a biological age for each participant and then compared the changes in these measurements over time, yielding a quantified pace of aging.

The majority of the research on aging participants had biological ages similar to their chronological age. But here is the important part. Some participants were found to have aged as much as 3 years physiologically over the course of just one calendar year. Scientists also found participants with an accelerated rate of aging performed worse on physical and cognitive ability assessments.

It's up to you to reverse the effects of the biological aging process

It’s up to you to reverse the effects of the biological aging process

The common saying, “you’re as old (or young) as you feel,” was confirmed by the study’s results. Participants with an older biological age perceived themselves to be in worse health than their biologically younger peers.

A big challenge in assessing aging are the compound results caused by cumulative life experiences. For doctors and scientists, it’s nearly impossible to determine whether lifestyle, stress, medical history, or other circumstances are individually responsible for many age-related diseases.

Ultimately, it’s a combination of all these factors that either ages you prematurely or keeps you healthy and prevents illnesses now and in the future. This is precisely why so many biomarkers were used in the study and why multiple beneficial lifestyle choices typically have a synergistic effect on your overall health.

This study will have significant implications on further research to prevent aging, which will help us not only increase our lifespans, but more importantly, increase our health span, or “the years of life lived without disease and disability.” Living longer doesn’t help us much if we’re too sick to fully enjoy the extra years we have. Making proactive decisions about your health now can have lasting positive effects this new research on aging shows.

This is all good news, but it’s just the beginning. Most people are either too lazy or not worried enough to change their behavior and routine. In my next article, I’ll be talking about the most common major age-related health issues.

What Our Clients Say…

I Can Reverse the Effects of Middle Age

Dear Brian,

How to reverse the biological aging process at 51

How to reverse the biological aging process at 51

I can’t thank you enough for providing me with the support and training that has given me improved health, energy, focus and most importantly the knowledge that I can reverse the effects of middle age.

Before joining your program I believed that I would need to live with high blood pressure, feeling winded after climbing stairs, lack of energy and just feeling like an old man at 51 years of age. After just 4 weeks of training my blood pressure was normal, I could climb stairs without feeling winded and I felt 20 years younger. It was truly amazing!

Brian, thanks again to you and your professional staff for all that you done for my health, my family and my business by keeping me on track.

Best regards to you and your staff,

My Health is Now a Cherished Commodity

Dear Brian,

How to reverse the biological aging process

How to reverse the biological aging process

Thank you for the gift of new life. Because of your very special “Gift” and your unique understanding of the human body, you accomplished what I thought would be impossible! After having gained so much weight and having various other unsolvable medical problems as well. I had given up hope that anything or anyone could help. I was pleasantly surprised with what you were able to do with this body of mine, both physically and mentally.

I even got to the point that I looked forward to exercising, me, the person that wouldn’t go to the gym! Brian, you are the most energetic. uplifting and positive person I have ever met, and that definitely worked for me. The special attention given me by your entire staff was so positive that , along with all your incredible knowledge about the body, I am a different person today. For that, I will be eternally grateful. I feel great and more than that. I am a different person. I stay excited about everything now. Everyone notices the change in me, and my husband loves it too. My health, something I took for granted before becoming almost bedridden, is now a cherished commodity.

Thank you for getting me started on the road to a longer and healthier life. You are a jewel.

Best Wishes Always,

What to Do After a Workout – Recovery When You’re Over 45

Let’s face it, none of us are getting any younger. We make jokes about it, kid each other about being slow, but the truth isn’t any laughing matter. Once you cross 45 chronological years, the vast majority of people notice some big changes. They get tired faster. Workouts are harder and the soreness lasts longer. Recovery is measured in days, not hours. It’s harder and harder to lose weight, and easier to gain it. Our sleeping patterns change and so does our sex drive.

The combination of lifestyle, the modern diet, and lack of regular exercise are a potent combination that delivers some nasty long term results. Even if you want to make meaningful changes, there simply isn’t enough time in the day or week on a regular basis.

Today I’d like to zero in on some of the major health dysfunctions facing the aging professional. It’s not your fault, and this isn’t a lecture to make you feel bad about yourself. Rather, I want you to understand what you’re up against and how you can get back on track.

Maximum Results with Minimum Time Invested

Knowing What to Do After a Workout will Help Achieve Maximum Results

Knowing What to Do After a Workout will Help You Achieve Maximum Results

When you’re in your twenties and thirties you don’t have to be as careful when you workout. It’s easy to do too many exercises for each muscle group, too many reps and too many sets. You didn’t have to worry about what to do after a workout. You probably didn’t even have clear goals for each workout.

When you’re young you can afford to make these kinds of mistakes. As we age we need to be much more careful. We need maximum results with minimum time invested. It’s not just because we lead busy lives and can’t spend hours in the gym. It’s because every workout represents a certain amount of wear and tear on the body. It makes no sense to speed up the depletion by performing more exercise than necessary to achieve our goals.

The challenge we face as we get older is doing the right amount of exercise for each muscle group. Now we need to worry about what to do after a workout! Muscles grow though an adaptive response to the intensity at which they are forced to work. In your mid-40s, your workouts start to take more of a toll on your body and recovering after your workout isn’t what it used to be.

You’ll need to make a few tweaks to your routines to ensure you’re not over-training. Lengthy workout sessions of weight training and running was perfectly fine in your 20s and 30s, but in your 40s, You’ll have to cut back as it gets harder to get out of bed in the morning after a hard training session.

6 Ways to Recover Naturally

Extreme Fatigue After a Workout Let's You Know You are Overdoing it

Extreme Fatigue After a Workout Let’s You Know You are Overdoing it

How do you know you’re overdoing it? Extreme fatigue. Exercise should energize and uplift you, even when you feel unmotivated at the beginning of your sweat session. Here are six ways to recover naturally from exercise as you get older. These are the top 6 things you can do to answer the question of what to do after a workout.

Reduce Exercise Time

Instead of an hours-long gym session, you can start with 20 minutes of resistance training, followed by a 20-minute run and that’s it. You can cut this time even more, but it requires careful consultation to create your personalized plan.

Focus on Macronutrients

Eat to replenish after a workout and throughout the day. Ensure you’re getting the right ratio of carbs to protein to fat for your diet and fitness goals. As we age, nutrition plays an even greater role in our ability to metabolize and recover. Decreasing carbs in a controlled and supervised way is especially important for those with insulin resistance or metabolic disorder.

Add More Recovery Days

I used to workout 5-6 days per week. Now, it’s every other day to ensure I get a day to properly recover from my workouts. If you really want to be as efficient with your exercise time, you’ll need to have a personalized plan. You can’t just guess on your own. On off days, do yoga or foam rolling to stretch your muscles, helping to further recovery.

Eat and Drink Natural Anti-inflammatories

A potent natural anti-inflammatory is turmeric. Fruits high in antioxidants and flavonoids like blueberries and cherries are great natural anti-inflammatories as well. Juice it all for speedy recovery.

Consider Adding Supplements

There are a wide range of supplements with high bioavailability that can help improve circulation, metabolism, and reduce inflammation. As our cellular functions begin their natural decline, supplements play an increasingly important role in extending our functionality. It’s best to consult and integrative physician or naturopath to make sure you choose exactly what is right for you.

Plenty of Rest is Essential

Be sure to engage in relaxation via mediation, yoga and mindfulness. For faster recovery and optimal health, go to bed early to get more sleep and drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. The use of fitness tracking apps like Fitbit can help you monitor the quality of sleep to make sure you are getting the full benefit of your resting recovery time.

10 Natural Supplements to Reverse the Signs of Aging
Incorporating these natural supplements into your daily life can slow and even reverse the effects of aging

Incorporating these natural supplements into your daily life can slow and even reverse the signs of aging

You can slow or reverse the signs of aging starting today through the use of these 10 natural supplements. For maximum effect, the key is to incorporate all of these natural supplements into your daily life. These are natural organic solutions that will help reverse the aging process. When combined with an organic diet, reduced UV exposure, plenty of water, and adequate sleep, you have a great chance at reversing the signs of aging.

10 Natural Supplements to Reverse the Signs of Aging

1. Glucosamine

Benefits of Glucosamine – Protects against: Fine lines and sagging skin
Although there’s more research on the amino acid as a topical ingredient, a study published in the Journal of Dermatologic Treatment showed a 34% reduction in visible wrinkles and fine lines in participants who ingested it. A review of the benefits of glucosamine in The Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology suggested it can accelerate wound healing, improve skin hydration, and decrease wrinkles when taken as a natural supplement.
Recommended dose of Glucosamine: 1,500 mg per day

2. Coenzyme Q10

Benefits of Coenzyme Q10 – Protects against: Wrinkles
What is coenzyme q10? Similar to vitamins C and E, coenzyme Q10 is a nutrient that can help contribute to the overall health and appearance of your skin. Coenzyme Q10 has also shown promise as a particularly effective youth-booster: In a Japanese trial, adults who took oral coenzyme Q10 reported a reduction in wrinkle depth, volume, and area after just two weeks.
Recommended dose of Coenzyme Q10: 200 mg per day

3. Vitamin C

Benefits of Vitamin C – Protects against: Wrinkles and dullness
The benefits of oral and topical vitamin C have been shown in clinical studies to decrease oxidative stress in cells, which helps cells to grow normally. This helps cells regenerate and produce healthier skin, pumping the brakes on wrinkles and making your complexion more vibrant. Vitamin C also has been clinically shown to improve lipoprotein as well as antioxidant activity of serum being enhanced with the elevation of Vitamin C dosage.
Recommended dose of Vitamin C: 1250 mg per day

4. Vitamin E

Benefits of Vitamin E – Protects against: Environmental skin damage and dullness
“Research shows that vitamin E has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties,” Goldenberg says. Both factors are important and show that vitamin E benefits skin regeneration and cell turnover, the process in which dead skin cells slough off and healthier, more radiant skin cells take their place. Goldenberg says vitamin E also protects skin from wrinkle-forming UV radiation and environmental damage.
Recommended dose of Vitamin E: 200 IU per day

5. Polypodium Leucotomos Extract (PLE)

Benefits of Polypodium Leucotomos Extract – Protects against: Sun damage, discoloration, and sagging skin
In a Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology study, Polypodium Leucotomos Extract helped preserve human skin’s fibroblasts, which build and restore collagen to help combat wrinkles and sagging skin.
Recommended dose of Polypodium Leucotomos Extract: 500 mg before sun exposure

6. Telomerase

Benefits of Telomerase – Protects against: Natural shortening of telomeres essential to cell replication
Telomerase is a natural enzyme that is an anti-aging supplement created to increase the length of a telomere (or telomeres). Telomeres are the tips of the chromosomes which shrink in size as the cell divides; anti-aging doctors believe that the longer the telomeres, the longer a person will live. Telomerase increases the size of the telomeres which rejuvenates everything from the skin to all other organs, thus leading a person to life extension
Recommended dose of Telomerase: 250 – 1000 Units

7. Fish Oil or Omega 3 Fish Oil

Benefits of Omega 3 Fish Oil – Protects against: Heart disease and stroke, inflammation
Fish oil is very popular due to its high concentration of omega 3 fatty acids and its other benefits as an anti-aging system. Fish oil (or omega 3 fish oil) improves skin suppleness. It’s also known to be a great way to naturally treat arthritis and forms of inflammation within the body.
Recommended dose of Omega 3 Fish Oil: 1000-1500 mg daily

8. Alpha-Lipoic Acid

Benefits of Alpha-Lipoic Acid – Protects against: Cell oxidation and blood sugar balance
Alpha-Lipoic Acid is fat and water soluble . ALA is a powerful anti-oxidant and it helps control the level of glucose in the body. It also helps lower high levels of sugar in the blood and is beneficial in fighting Type II diabetes. Alpha-lipoic acid is one of the best anti-aging supplements. There’s some early evidence that long-term use of alpha-lipoic acid might help with the symptoms of dementia. Other studies suggest that an alpha-lipoic acid cream might help skin damage related to aging. However, more research needs to be done.
Recommended dose of Alpha-Lipoic Acid: 500-1200 mg daily

9. Glutathione

Benefits of Glutathione – Protects against: Cell oxidation and blood sugar balance
Glutathione is one of the most powerful anti-aging antioxidants around; it is produced in the body by the amino acids: cysteine, glutamic acid, and glycine; glutathione is one of the best anti-aging supplements because it is a great way to detoxify the body, maintain the body’s red blood cells and protect white blood cells
Recommended dose of Glutathione: 250 – 500 mg daily

10. DHEA

Benefits of DHEA – Protects against: Cell oxidation, inflammation, wrinkling, adrenal response
DHEA is a naturally occurring anti-aging hormone (like melatonin and human growth hormones) secreted by the adrenal gland. DHEA regulates the male and female sex hormones, androgen and estrogen. As a result, DHEA can impact a person’s rate of aging, including skin wrinkling and maintaining collagen for a longer period of time
Recommended dose of DHEA: 25-200 mg daily as advised medically

There are other natural supplements that can be added to this list as well. These ten will give you a great start toward reversing the effects of natural aging. You can take full advantage of these natural supplements by combining them with an anti-oxidant rich organic diet, and minimum UV exposure. Remember to drink plenty of water and get adequate sleep daily, as well.

Nutrition and Aging - A Healthy Lifestyle via Healthy Eating
Nutrition and Aging - A Healthy Lifestyle via Healthy Eating

Nutrition Plays an Important Role Throughout Your Life Span

There is increasing scientific and clinical interest in the interactions of nutrition and health as part of the aging process. This interest is due to the important role that nutrition plays throughout the life span. This role affects the growth and development of the body during childhood, affects the risk of acute and chronic diseases, the maintenance of physiological processes and the biological process of aging.

There are several scientific journals devoted to the role of nutrition and aging. The aim of “The Journal of Nutrition, Health & Aging” is to contribute to the improvement of knowledge regarding the relationships between nutrition and the aging process from birth to old age.”

According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, 70% of the physical decline among older adults with chronic disease is associated with modifiable risk factors such as poor nutrition, physical inactivity, and smoking. In addition, nearly 90% of older adults have diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, or a combination of all three. Each of these conditions have nutrition-related components.

Nutrition Requirements as We Age

A healthy diet becomes even more important as we age

A healthy diet becomes even more important as we age

While healthy eating is essential in all stages of life, eating well is especially important for older adults. Wise food choices and a balanced diet are key elements to a healthy lifestyle and can both slow and improve the aging process.

Our body goes through changes as we age. First of all, the body’s daily energy needs slowly decrease. Therefore, we likely need fewer daily calories than when we were younger. In addition, natural hormone changes make our body prone to depositing more body fat (usually around the mid-section) and less muscle. The situation is compounded by the amount of carbohydrates in our diet.

As we gain weight, our body moves toward a state of “insulin resistance” or Metabolic Syndrome. It has become an epidemic in the US partly due to our unhealthy lifestyle and partly due to the changing nature of our diet and food supply.

Your risk for hypertension (high blood pressure), high cholesterol, heart disease, diabetes, and stroke increases with the number of metabolic risk factors you have. The risk of having metabolic syndrome is closely linked to being overweight and obesity and a lack of physical activity.

Insulin resistance also may increase your risk for metabolic syndrome. Insulin resistance is a condition in which the body can’t use its insulin properly. Insulin is a hormone that helps move blood sugar into cells where it’s used for energy. Insulin resistance can lead to high blood sugar levels, and it’s closely linked to being overweight and obesity. Genetics (ethnicity and family history) and older age are other factors that may play a role in causing metabolic syndrome.

Metabolic syndrome is becoming more common due to a rise in obesity rates among adults. In the future, metabolic syndrome may overtake smoking as the leading risk factor for heart disease.

It is possible to prevent or delay metabolic syndrome, mainly with lifestyle changes. A healthy lifestyle is a lifelong commitment. Successfully controlling metabolic syndrome requires long-term effort and teamwork with your health care providers.

Anti-Oxidants and Anti-Aging

Fruits and vegetables are a great source of anti-oxidants

Fruits and vegetables are a great source of anti-oxidants

The role of antioxidants is a particularly popular nutrition topic in the media these days; in particular, their role in cancer prevention, anti-aging, and heart health.

Antioxidants, which are found mainly in fruits and vegetables, have been shown to help increase the body’s immune function by decreasing the chronic inflammation and oxidative stress that are often part of the aging process. Aging results in chronic low grade inflammation that is associated with increased risk for disease, poor physical functioning and mortality. Strategies that reduce age-related inflammation may improve the quality of life in older adults.

Omega 3 Fatty Acids

Heart disease is an all-too-common problem in our society, especially in the aging population. Omega 3 fatty acids are a type of polyunsaturated fat that plays an especially important role in heart health. Research has shown that omega 3 fats decrease the risk of arrhythmias, which can lead to sudden cardiac death, decrease triglyceride levels, lower blood pressure, and reduce the buildup of plaque on artery walls. The best sources of omega 3 fats are salmon, trout, flaxseeds, flaxseed oil, walnuts, and walnut oil. It is important to include these foods on a regular basis.

While good nutrition is essential for a healthy lifestyle, exercise combined with healthy eating is the most effective way to reduce the risk of age-related chronic conditions, like diabetes, heart disease, and osteoporosis. In addition, regular exercise can help reduce the risk of falls by improving balance and coordination and also lead to an increased sense of well-being. If you are looking to become more physically active to improve your health, take the following into consideration:

Conclusions & Next Steps to a Healthy Lifestyle

By now it should be pretty apparent there are many controllable factors that can reduce or reverse the aging process. Once we pass 45 chronological years, the aging process accelerates and we must be much more serious in our efforts to stay fit and feeling young.

Answer these questions for yourself:

  1. How important is it for you to have high energy, stamina, and vigor?
  2. What’s the value of your health to you and your family?
  3. Are you willing to invest the time to get to a healthy state?
  4. In a perfect world what would your ideal health look like?
  5. How do you feel today compared to last year or the year before?
  6. Have you noticed how much harder it is to get and stay in shape?
  7. When was the last time you felt really, really good?
  8. What would be the cost to you if you suffered a serious health event?
  9. What’s holding you back from being in the best shape you can be?
  10. Can you do this on your own, or do you need help?

I can’t answer these questions for you, but I can help you make the right decision that will put you on the path to the best health of your life. This includes reversing the aging process. This isn’t something new for me. I’ve been constantly improving my training program for 30 years.

Telomeres and Aging - Telomeres are the protective caps on the ends of the strands of DNA called chromosomes
Telomeres and Aging - Telomeres are the protective caps on the ends of the strands of DNA called chromosomes

Most DNA molecules consist of two biopolymer strands coiled around each other to form a double helix

We’re on the edge of being able to control or reverse the rate at which we age. There are exciting new technologies, revolving around telomeres and aging, that when combined with a carefully designed exercise and fitness plan, can clearly reduce and even reverse the aging process.

Dr George Church

Dr. George Church

Introducing the Harvard Pioneer of CRISPR, Dr. George Church. He is a highly distinguished professor of genetics and major figure at Harvard Medical School and in science worldwide. He is a pioneer in the area of genome engineering and the development of gene editing tools based on the CRISPR/Cas9 system (referred to as CRISPR here).

In December 2015, Dr. Church presented a talk highlighting that aging seems to be controlled to a large extent by the action of a rather small subset of your genes, and especially by master genes that control large numbers of other genes.

Your genes are areas of your DNA that determine eye color, hair color, sex, height, and other characteristics of your body. It is becoming more and more clear that genes also determine how you age.

Dr. Church described how science has now advanced to the point where the activity of your genes, whether the genes are “turned on” (expressed) or “turned off” (repressed, or down-regulated,) can increasingly be controlled, and not just in a test tube, but in whole bodies, and even in the brain.

Reducing or Reversing the Aging Process

reversing the aging process

CRISPR – Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats

Dr. Church’s focus is on CRISPR technology, which is a relatively new and particularly powerful method for adjusting gene activity in many different ways. It can even be applied for “editing”, or changing genes, which can be used to correct deleterious mutations, or to create deliberate mutations that can have good effects (such as in knocking out the effects of pro-aging genes).

The implication is very clear: If aging is controlled by master genes, and if the activity of such genes can now be intentionally controlled, then we are beginning to approach the regulating and reversing of aging on a very fundamental level. The same technology can be applied to the correction of many diseases as well, whether age-related or not.

Dr. Church wants to make the control of aging a practical reality, and soon. In an interview with the Washington Post at the beginning of December 2015, Dr. Church said his lab is already reversing aging in mice. He has already been able to reverse aging in human cells using CRISPR technology, and expects the first clinical trials of this technology to begin within as little as one year and that human applications may only be a few years away.

As exciting as this is, it’s not the only alternative when it comes to what’s happening at the cellular level. A second technology is currently available. It focuses on telomere lengthening. Telomeres are directly related to aging.

Nobel Science for Anti-Aging

Telomeres are the protective caps on the ends of the strands of DNA called chromosomes, which house our genomes. In young humans, telomeres are about 8,000-10,000 nucleotides long. They shorten with each cell division and when they reach a critical length the cell stops dividing or dies.

Telomeres and Aging - Telomere lengthening has the potential to reverse aging

A telomere is a region of repetitive nucleotide sequences at each end of a chromosome

Telomeres therefore act as a kind of molecular clock that tells a cell how old it is. Our cells also have a special enzyme called telomerase that rebuilds telomeres causing telomere lengthening. Cells with lots of telomerase can live much longer, and those without it die more quickly. Discovering how this all worked was a tremendous scientific achievement, for which Elizabeth Blackburn, Carol Greider and Jack Szostak received the 2009 Nobel Prize.

If we know the epigenetic state of all these different cells, no matter how many years apart they are, it only takes a few days to reprogram a cell and duplicate the effects of decades of slow change in the body, or reverse those effects. So in principle we could turn a young cell into an old one or an old cell into a young one because the only difference between them is epigenetics, or gene expression.

Turning Back the Internal Clock and Reversing Aging

Turning back the internal clock to reverse aging

Turning back the internal clock to reverse aging

“Now we have found a way to lengthen human telomeres by as much as 1,000 nucleotides, turning back the internal clock in these cells by the equivalent of many years of human life,” said Helen Blau, PhD, professor of microbiology and immunology at Stanford and director of the university’s Baxter Laboratory for Stem Cell Biology. “Telomere lengthening greatly increases the number of cells available for studies such as drug testing or disease modeling.”

The Stanford researchers found that as few as three applications of the modified RNA over a period of a few days could significantly increase the length of the telomeres in cultured human muscle and skin cells. A 1,000 nucleotide addition represents more than a 10 percent increase in the length of the telomeres. These cells divided many more times in the culture dish than did untreated cells: about 28 more times for the skin cells, and about three more times for the muscle cells.

“This study is a first step toward the development of telomere lengthening to improve cell therapies and to possibly treat disorders of accelerated aging in humans,” said John Cooke, MD, PhD. Cooke, a co-author of the study, formerly was a professor of cardiovascular medicine at Stanford. He is now chair of cardiovascular sciences at the Houston Methodist Research Institute.

There are also implications for treating conditions of aging, such as diabetes and heart disease. This has really opened the doors to consider all types of potential uses of this therapy.” Ramunas, Yakubov, Cooke and Blau are inventors on patents for the use of modified RNA for telomere extension.

Brian Theiss The First ISSA Certified Personal Trainer

I’m Dr. Sal Arria, Co-Founder and CEO of the International Sports Sciences Association. Back in 1978 I started the first chiropractic and sports medicine clinic in Santa Barbara, CA. It was the largest sports medicine clinic between Los Angeles and San Francisco and we actually had a gym. The glass-walled gym inside of our clinic so that patients could see that not only was the treatment important but their training and conditioning after the treatment was critical to the outcome of their recovery. From that, we developed the International Sports Sciences Association. The ISSA is the first organization in the United States to certify personal trainers.

An ISSA Personal Trainer Taking Personal Training to an Entirely New Level

I’ve known Brian Theiss for over 30 years now. Brian was actually a patient of mine and when we started the ISSA, the International Sports Sciences Association, I suggested to Brian that he get involved and he became the first ISSA personal trainer at that time. Today, he has taken personal training to an entirely new level. A level that most personal trainers in the United States don’t even think about. That is, that level of executive health and fitness that you just have to hear about.

An ISSA Personal Trainer Program Tailored Specifically to Objective Goals that Work

Executives and CEOs of big corporations just don’t have the time to focus on healthy aging. It’s sad, but they just don’t have the time to set aside to get in shape. They are too busy running a large company. Brian has made his training program tailored specifically to objective goals that work. That make changes in executives lives. He has that experience.

Unlike most people who watch professions and how things evolve, Brian has been the leader. That ability to take and to see what is coming up and to make and adapt to those changes is what puts him at the forefront of the health and fitness profession.

If clients are put on a training program, a canned program, they fail. Brian’s approach to health and fitness is way different. He takes each individual and tailors their training program specifically to their needs and their physiological responses. Their work environment. All of the factors to make a change in lifestyle, not a temporary change. That is critical to the outcomes over a long period of time.

You can go on a diet and lose a little bit of weight but chances are you are going to gain it back.

The Finest ISSA Personal Trainer in the United States

If I had to pick a personal trainer in the United States, in the ISSA we have certified and trained over 200,000 trainers in the country, I would have to say that Brian is absolutely one of the finest ISSA certified personal trainers in the United States and I would recommend his training program to anyone who is considering a lifestyle change. Anyone who has to make a change in their health and their outcomes and their physical well-being. I would recommend Brian and the TheissCare training program without reservation.

Senior fitness... The benefits of exercise for seniors... The KEY to Healthy Aging

Senior fitness… The benefits of exercise for seniors… The KEY to Healthy Aging

A longer life for healthy aging individuals represents an important opportunity for their families and societies as a whole. It represents a second chance for seniors to pursue new activities such as further education or a long neglected passion. All the while continuing to make valuable contributions to yourself, family, and community. The extent of these opportunities depends heavily on one factor: YOUR HEALTH. How do you stay healthy? With senior fitness! Staying healthy into your 6th, 7th, 8th decade and beyond is one of the many benefits of exercise for seniors.

The World Population is Aging Quickly

The world population is aging quickly

World Population Aging

The number of seniors 60 years and older will rise from 900 million to 2 billion between 2015 to 2050 moving from 12% to 22% of the total global population. This is a lot of new opportunity for living an active life the way it was meant to be lived. That is, if you are healthy enough.

There is no typical older person. There is only typical Illness, dysfunctional systems and disease. Biological aging is loosely associated with a person’s chronological age. This in turn is controlled predominantly through lifestyle. One of the ways to control biological aging is with senior fitness.

Ernestine Shepherd - An example of senior fitness

Ernestine Shepherd – An example of senior fitness

Just look at Ernestine Shepherd; professional body builder, gorgeous, healthy, sexy, disciplined, and she’s 80 years old! Talk about the benefits of exercise for seniors and aging well! With this fact established you can choose to be 80 years old chronologically and have the physical and mental capacity similar to many 20 year olds. This is largely a choice… so what would you choose?

Even though our average life expectancy now surpasses the chronological age of 78, we’re not necessarily living better. The incidence of chronic diseases, like diabetes and heart disease, has also been growing dramatically, particularly among people who are not yet in their senior years.

This phenomenon has it own name and has been identified as a “lengthening of morbidity.” That means we’re spending more years living with-dysfunctional bodies, chronic disease, and ill health. Is this the outcome you envisioned for your prolonged life span?

The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and the Cooper Institute in Dallas gathered medical records from 18,670 middle-aged men and women with an average age of 49. They were healthy and free of chronic diseases at their first check-up.

The follow-up results were not surprising. They found those adults who had been the least active and fit at the time of their middle-age check-up were the most likely to have developed any of eight serious or chronic conditions early in the aging process. These included heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and colon or lung cancer.

The adults who’d been the most active and  fit in their 40s and 50s often developed many of the same conditions, but notably they appeared significantly later in life than for the less active and fit. Typically, the most aerobically active and fit people lived with chronic illnesses in the final five years of their lives, instead of the final 10, 15 or even 20 years.

Senior Fitness Reshapes the Landscape

It should be clear that becoming active and fit in middle age and maintaining your health and wellness will reshape the landscape of your aging life. You can choose these same end results for yourself. These results are clear.

Being active and physically fit “compresses time.” You can choose to be healthy and functional in the early post-retirement years. Who wouldn’t be attracted to the prospect of being free of serious illness and, at least potentially, imbued with a finer quality of life?

The effects of exercise and aging in this study were statistically greater in terms of delaying illness, system dysfunction, and disease progression. Those who exercised the most and therefore where in the fittest group did tend to live longer than the least fit. More important was the fact they were even more likely to live well during more of their senior years.

Of course, aging is a complicated process and extremely individualized. The onset or absence of illness represents only one element in the quality of life after age 65. Since it is associated with midlife activity and fitness, it is subject to change.

Be an “Athlete of Life” versus a “Spectator of Life”… Another benefit of exercise for seniors and senior fitness

While aerobic fitness is partly determined by genetics, we can largely take control of it. We don’t need to rely on the old paradigm that aging well is in the luck of the universe. By middle age, much of a person’s fitness depends on physical activity. So, staying active and exercising during midlife, especially if you haven’t been, can pay enormous later-life benefits.

Let’s talk about staving off chronic disease. The benefits of of exercise for seniors can be measured as follows. Improvement from the least active and fit to the second-to-the-least-fit category of fitness will deliver more benefit, than someone who moves to the highest fitness grouping from the second-highest.

Moving out of the least-fit category requires the right fitness program and the right guidance pertaining to exercise. Do you need to become an athlete to experience the benefits of senior fitness?

Yes, but an “athlete of life.” Again you make the choice to be an athlete of life, vibrant and active. Or you can choose to be a spectator of life with your aching, diseased, and depressed body. Even if you decided not to choose, you have still made a choice. You will live with that choice every second of your life.

Laying the Foundation for Healthy Aging

Start your senior exercise program with an enjoyable activity

Start Your Senior Exercise Program with an Enjoyable Activity

According to board-certified internal medicine physician Jennifer Azen, M.D., senior patients who lice the senior fitness life are easy to spot. Some of the benefits of exercise for seniors that you will notice are that they move more quickly, have better posture, and slimmer waistlines.

Regular exercise for seniors tops the list as the best way to reverse the signs of aging and prevent many of the health risks associated with getting older, such as a heart attack, stroke, and falls. We also need to mention “exercise tolerance,” which refers to how far you can walk without getting tired, becoming short of breath or having to stop.

Start your senior fitness exercise program with an enjoyable activity so it can easily become part of your daily life. For many, walking is a great place to start because it requires no gym or special equipment. It also helps to prepare the body for more vigorous activity. While 30-60 minutes of daily exercise is optimal for healthy aging, starting slowly is fine. It’s always a good idea to use a heart monitor so you can know where you are.

Finding activities to engage in like walking, bicycling, rowing, or swimming, can be a good way to have fun while also getting in the recommended 30 minutes of exercise per day. The challenge for today’s busy senior executive or professional is finding the time to exercise on a regular basis. If that is you, we have introduced a new online exercise program that can be done from wherever you are in the world.

Staying Healthy into Your Senior Years

Senior fitness begins with Regular, Moderate Exercise

Senior fitness begins with Regular, Moderate Exercise

A key point that’s emphasized, is that lifestyle choices should be easy and fun to make. Regular, moderate exercise is important for healthy aging, but is less likely to be performed if it turns out to be too much effort for too little enjoyment.

With any new senior fitness plan, talk to your doctor if you have specific health concerns or to determine if modifications are needed based on your health history. To reduce risk of injury, the National Institute of Aging reminds seniors to follow these basic safety tips while exercising: begin slowly with low-intensity exercises, warm up and cool down properly, pay attention to your surroundings, dress appropriately and drink plenty of water

The bottom line is light daily exercise is not only safe for seniors, It is essential for enjoying a longer, healthier, and more independent life. Regular daily exercise helps to prevent cardiovascular disease and stroke by improving blood pressure and cholesterol levels. In addition, patients who introduce exercise into their fitness plan for chronic diseases have better outcomes than patients who aren’t physically active. Besides walking, good choices include swimming, dancing, and yard work for endurance, light weight training for muscle strength, tai chi for balance, and yoga for flexibility.

What Our Clients Say…

71 Years Old and Whipped Into Shape

Dear Brian,

The benefits of exercise for seniors

The benefits of exercise for seniors

I am so happy my daughter found you and even happier that she sent my husband and me to you. I am 71 years old and had no idea I could be “whipped” into shape.

In 10 days, I lost 8% body fat and have dropped 13 lbs in three weeks. The most impressive thing for me was the intensive personal attention you give each person. You have an individual fitness program for each person and an individual eating program for each person. It isn’t like “one plan fits all.” I think the VO2 testing information given to Brian is fabulous.

To this date, I have lost 19 lbs, about 20 inches and have gone from a size 16 to a 12 and the 12 is a bit big at this point. I am never hungry on their eating plan.

I highly recommend anyone to this facility. It can extend and even save your life.

I Feel Strong in My Mid 50’s

Dear Brian,

The benefits of exercise for seniors

The benefits of exercise for seniors

I was on such a high after being evaluated after my 6 1/2 week program; I couldn’t believe the loss of inches and weight. Most important is how I feel – I feel strong! I’m doing better with my asthma, and my cholesterol is on its way down. I now have to learn to handle all the compliments coming my way.

I was not happy with myself before I started; I wasn’t exercising anywhere near my potential, but didn’t know it at the time. Even though I walked often and worked with weights at times, being in my mid-50’s, everything was slowing down. In the past, my clothing size was 8 – 10, but then found myself looking at 12’s and 14’s. I am now a size 10, going downwards to a size 8.

I want to thank you for all care you took with me. Your trainers are superior and wouldn’t be manipulated by my initial whining, which grew into joyful sounds as my strength heightened and I found myself finishing reps and intervals which would have been unimaginable (and unmanageable) at the beginning.

Brian, may you and your family thrive in health and happiness always.

Darren Kavinoky Enjoying the Results he Achieved in the TheissCare Health and Wellness program

1) What makes the TheissCare Health and Physical Fitness Program so different from other training programs?

To begin, TheissCare is an integrated whole-life health and physical fitness experience, not just a training program. It combines the personal objectives of each client with a nutritional plan and exercise component to achieve accelerated, positive results. These are results they haven’t been able to accomplish on their own, or in other health and fitness programs. ThiessCare delivers the results our clients dream about, but have been unobtainable to this point.

Why the TheissCare Health and Physical Fitness Program is so Different

2) You’ve been a ISSA Certified Personal Trainer for many years. How did you first develop your health and physical fitness program?

Many years ago I was in a serious accident. My recovery wasn’t going well and my doctors were pessimistic if I would ever recover. I was facing debilitating pain and paralysis and likely wouldn’t be able to walk the same again. Being the stubborn person I am, that wasn’t an option. After much pain and effort, I was successful in developing my own rehabilitation program. I knew if I could do this for myself, I could help others as well. This wasn’t just about rehabilitation. It was about getting my freedom back. I would not accept being trapped in a physical condition I knew in my heart could be changed. That was the beginning of what was to become the TheissCare health and physical fitness program with much more to come.

3) What do you mean, more to come?

Over the years our clients directed me to create what is now TheissCare. Their results were as dramatic as my own recovery. I began attracting clients who had tried all sorts of other physical fitness and training programs, but had failed with the conventional approaches. They were ready to give up, on so many levels. Out of this came our current training program after thousands of clients in the last 31 years. We have hundreds of testimonials based on their actual results. Many from doctors who undertook our program after witnessing the remarkable transformation of the clients under their care.

4) So who is your ideal client?

That’s a great question. Anyone will benefit from the unique approach to health and fitness at TheissCare. The biggest gains come from clients over 45 years of age who are very busy and can’t afford the time or schedule of a traditional physical fitness program. They often have multiple health issues that start showing up as they age, compounded by their lifestyle of stress and the modern American diet. The good news is the results come very quickly with minimum time and effort. That’s not to say the program is easy, far from it. It is extremely effective. Life behavior change is always a challenge, but we are naturally averse to change. It takes effort, but most importantly, it takes focus and determination. TheissCare works because it delivers such great results, reinforcing the results of the life changes.

5) You mentioned ideal candidate for your health and physical fitness program was over 45, why is that?

That’s another great question. As our bodies age, our hormone balance and physical metabolism changes. We don’t burn calories the same way we did in our 20’s, 30’s, or even early 40’s. There are many reasons for this, but part of it is we all get old and can’t do the things we once did. We don’t recover as quickly. Most importantly, the improvements we make regress very quickly. When you combine these physical facts with the reality of busy executive schedules, poor diet, and unregulated stress, it’s no wonder we have such an overweight, hypertensive, out-of-shape population. The Baby Boomers, and now GenXers are all aging out and need a different kind of health and physical fitness program to meet their health objectives and still not be disruptive to their busy schedules and lifestyles.

6) Is the TheissCare health and physical fitness program a weight loss plan?

There are big, positive weight changes naturally associated with the program. This is because we change how the body metabolizes calories. We do this by changing diet and nutrition. Our clients aren’t hungry during their program, but they do lose considerable weight as their body’s access stored energy and burn the extra calories. Of course that stored energy is in the overweight fat pretty much everyone has put on over the years.

7) Tell me about the exercise component of your health and physical fitness program. What kind of workout do you have your clients do?

I need to be completely clear here. TheissCare is not a workout program in the classical sense. While we do have machines, they’re different and used differently. One of the things I discovered during my rehabilitation was the conventional workout program was effective, but wasn’t efficient. It simply took too long. I developed an exercise methodology that is extremely fast and effective. Clients often do a complete workout routine in 20 minutes. The key is in how your body accesses the stored energy and converts it to work. My health and physical fitness training program is completely safe with very low exposure to injury, unlike many of the popular workout programs today. It can be done with or without additional weight.

8) You say your health and physical fitness program is extremely efficient and effective. How does it compare to popular programs like P90X and Crossfit, to name just two?

Workout programs like you mentioned are also very effective, but they’re most effective for young bodies. They are extremely intense. With that intensity you run an increased risk of injury. As we age, our bodies don’t have the capacity to accommodate that level of intensity, quickly. The result is often injury that has a very longtime recovery time. I developed TheissCare because our clients simply cannot afford to be exposed to that degree of risk. It’s not an option. TheissCare is intense, but in a different way. It’s designed to be very low impact, using low or no weight, with a high degree of safety. What makes it so different it that we exercise very targeted and specific muscle groups and group combinations. This isn’t the common practice of fitness trainers or personal coaches. The normal “workout” targets large muscles like deltoids, biceps, triceps, and so on. I’ve discovered and developed something different. When you target very specific muscles and muscle groups in a very specific way, amazing things happen. The muscles are quickly and collectively reach exhaustion. Then a completely different group of muscles are worked to exhaustion. The key is what muscles, which groups, and which combinations. The body doesn’t’ know what’s happening so it goes into an elevated calorie burn cycle to accommodate this massive exhaustion that’s happening everywhere. This has been refined over the last 31 years with thousands of clients. In a very short time, the client receives a complete, whole-body workout that significantly raises their calorie-burning metabolism. Their body then continues to burn throughout the day.

Would you like to know why other health and physical fitness programs haven’t worked and why my method is so effective?
