“The revolution starts with you.” – Paul Chek

Institute, Paul Chek, joins us to uncover the truth about where we truly are as a nation and a world when it comes to health, wellness, and sustainability.
What actions can you do to become a better universal citizen of today's modern world?
Paul shares the specifics on how you can build a deeper connection with nature, The 4 “doctors” everyone should follow, and why focusing on yourself first doesn't only lead to a more fulfilling life, but a better world for all sentient beings.
Discover why being a healthy human means returning back to our most basic principles in the way we love ourselves, our body, and others.
Your core is everything! If you don’t have a healthy, functional core, it doesn’t matter what your health goals are – breaking your PR in the marathon, recovering from an injury, regaining your shape after a pregnancy – it simply isn’t going to happen, and especially not in any long-term way.
The Healthy Core Cycle Checklist is designed to help you remove common sources of gut inflammation, maximize the rest you need, and choose the right starter exercise to help you build a fit, functional and aesthetically pleasing core.
This simple and handy checklist, will:
- Address common diet, rest, and work-life balance stresses that cause gut inflammation
- Assess your current core function
- Prescribe simple, effective exercises to build your core
- Prioritize your plan of attack to address the most important lifestyle factors
If you’re a fitness professional, the checklist will be a great resource and guide for your clients. When they follow the checklist, not only will they achieve a healthy core, but they’ll look and feel better, and have so much more energy. They will definitely thank you for the resource!

Power Quotes From Part 1
“The human body is a very complex, cybernetic system and scientific double-blinded research is both isolating information and presenting very bold assertions about the body without realizing that there could also be a knock-on effect. Science is good at objectifying snapshots about your health but they don't tell you a single thing about how you became ill. Your mind and body become ill when you don't live a natural life in harmony with the earth, stars, and universe.” – Paul Chek
“Man will continue to invent technologies outside of himself until he realizes that every technology he builds is actually already present within himself. The question is, ‘Will he destroy the earth before he figures it out?' “ – Paul Chek quoting Rudolf Steiner.
“Today, people cannot focus, think, nor want to do the work and they want everything quick. Society is now at a place where if we don't become conscious in a timely matter, we could collapse at any moment.” – Paul Chek
“There is more to food than just feeding your body. The physical body feeds on food, the emotional body feeds on emotions, and the mental body feeds on thoughts and ideas. Today, there are so many ideas and we’re confused; we don’t know who to believe. So, we end up with a mental hunger for the truth. Because our mind isn’t satiated, we don’t feel safe and we end up emotionally hungry for connection.” – Paul Chek'When you grow your own food, hunt it, or eat it with your hands, you don't only experience a level of physical satiation but a higher level of emotional connection and satisfaction with the earth as well.' - @PaulChekClick To Tweet

Power Quotes From Part 2
“The wisest, healthiest people all had one fundamental concept underneath their philosophy: Not too much, not too little. That is what we need to get back to as a society. You don't need to over exercise but you do need to exercise. You don't need to overeat but you shouldn't under eat.” – Paul Chek
“Plant medicines don't do the work for you; they open up your psyche and show you what's truly keeping you from being human and a citizen of the universe. From that moment, it's up to you to pick yourself up and walk through the door that they have opened up for you.” – Paul Chek
“Constant consumerism is an indication that we have lost connection with our soul. We have lost connection with what gives us a sensation of satiation emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. We've lost connection to what really is beautiful.” – Paul Chek
“Right now, we need all hands on deck to make this world a better place. However, you can't think effectively until you're fed and rested effectively; you can't do any work until you're ready to work; you can't be loving until you're loving to yourself. You have to eat well to think well; you have to eat well to move well; you have to eat well to rest well. If you don't eat well, you can't sleep because your body is jacked up on chemicals and you're full of adrenaline and cortisol. When you see what it takes to be a healthy person, it means you have to go right back to basic principles.” – Paul Chek“A sick body has sick emotions. A sick body has a sick mind. The mind and the body mirror each other; as above so below, as below as above.” – @PaulChek of @CHEKInstitute on @WellnessForce Radio http://wellnessforce.com/226 for this special 3-part interview series.Click To Tweet

Power Quotes From Part 3
“Your ‘yes' has no value until you learn how to say, ‘no.' Until you know what your own core value system is, you'll make poor, unhealthy decisions that make you unhappy because you haven't learned how to say, ‘no.' Once you understand what your values are, you can shift and move your energy in alignment with your dream.” – Paul Chek
“If you're listening to sad music when you're sad but you're not taking action to create happiness, then you're actually just medicating yourself with the illness.” – Paul Chek
“Consciousness is a psychic substance produced not blindly but in living awareness of opposites.” – Paul Chek'Depression is the fear that yesterday will be tomorrow. Anxiety is fear of tomorrow.' – @PaulChek of @CHEKInstitute on @WellnessForce Radio http://wellnessforce.com/226 for this special 3-part interview series.Click To Tweet
