Episode Info: Popping seven pills a day, having all kinds of allergies and food intolerances, suffering from one or more autoimmune diseases, feeling exhausted, anxious and overwhelmed all the time have become the new normal in our society. What is normal about this state I’m asking you? Since when have we become so out-of-sync with nature and the very core of who we are? There’s absolutely nothing normal about taking numerous pills to fight diabetes and high levels of cholesterol or lower your blood pressure. It’s really tough to see an increased number of people especially in Western societies being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson, Glaucoma and other inflammatory diseases. Worse, it’s insane to even imagine the fact that in less than 10 years every one in two Americans will be diagnosed with cancer or will already have a history of cancer.

We are bombarded with tips, hacks, strategies and techniques that will make us more successful, boost our productivity and give us fuel to work even harder. What very few business leaders and high-performance coaches fail to bring across is the strong linkage between being healthy and running a successful business, the way you need to prioritize the two in order to maximize your energy, achieve remarkable results while living a fulfilled and blissful life. This is not a debate about work-life-balance, nor is it a quick fix guide pinpointing seven steps you need to implement in order to achieve XYZ. If you’re not healthy, how on Earth do you want to build or run a successful business, take care of your loved ones and live a fulfilled life? Now, I’m not saying that you can’t run a successful business or even build an empire if you have certain disabilities or if due to some unfortunate events you got injured and now you need to make the most out of your life living in a wheelchair for example. That’s not what I’m talking about here. I’m referring to those busines...
