Central Otago Mirror - - NEWS - How to achieve Ex­cep­tional Health from My 20 GOLDEN Rules , by Ja­son Shon Bennett

What I am in­ter­ested in is very, very sim­ple: peo­ple living a long healthy life free of drugs and dis­ease. From what I have seen over the last nearly 30 years of study, ex­cep­tional health is achiev­able for al­most ev­ery­one.

We ac­tu­ally know what to do. The science is rig­or­ous, clear, unan­i­mous and sign­posted by the cen­te­nar­i­ans.

The ques­tions then stand: How do we change our bad habits? How do we eat less? How do we raise our chil­dren on bet­ter-qual­ity food? How do we ed­u­cate them on what mod­ern junk food does to the hu­man body? How do we lower the food-borne ill­ness that is heart dis­ease? How do we an­ni­hi­late the global pan­demic that is obe­sity, which di­rectly leads to pre­ventable di­a­betes?

How do we al­ter our daily lives in a way that we wipe out mod­ern life­style can­cers such as bowel, lung, breast, liver, and prostate can­cer?

What are the sim­ple things that we can all do ev­ery day that will make the big­gest dif­fer­ence to our health, vi­tal­ity, age­ing, longevity, dis­ease risk and ge­netic ex­pres­sion? How do we re­gain con­trol over our health to the de­gree that we are not re­ly­ing on man-made med­i­ca­tions and drugs to prop us up as we age?

I will guide you through what I con­sider to be the top-20 rules that you need to prac­tise, learn and in­ves­ti­gate – daily – to get your health fun­da­men­tals ab­so­lutely right. Th­ese are what I know to be the most im­por­tant things you can do to get well and stay well.

I call them My 20 GOLDEN Rules. What does GOLDEN stand for? Ge­net­ics Op­ti­mised by Life­style, Diet and En­vi­ron­ment, Nat­u­rally!

This means you tak­ing con­trol

My20 of your ge­netic ex­pres­sion, via your diet, life­style and en­vi­ron­ment, in a nat­u­ral and bal­anced way, to op­ti­mise your health and longevity. Pre­ven­tion is the cure; the cure is pre­ven­tion.

20 Gold­enRules.
