My Mission: Prevent Heart Attack, Stroke and Heart Disease
Garey Simmons spent 3 decades in Missions work. After a stark heart disease risk factor diagnosis Garey became interested in holistic health and didn’t want to use pharmaceutical drugs as prescribed. He began espousing the benefits of essential oils and attended a one year certification course at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York. He founded Optimal Health Bridge in 2006 in order to help people over age 50 (boomers and seniors) come to grips with aging and chronic disease issues. His nationally recognized book “How to Improve Your Health Fast” is for sale on Amazon as a downloadable Kindle book. *****As a business owner, Garey frequently speaks at networking events and groups sharing lessons he’s learned in business using best practices to achieve healthy success. Recently, he’s been quoted on the major networks in regards to using leverage to gain the advantage in life, in health and in business. “Leverage is key.Positioning is key. Big doors swing open on small hinges. It’s the single most important thing you should do: distinguish yourself and increase your perceived value to your marketplace. It’s like Jiu Jit-su. Use leverage for positioning. This is true in every aspect of life. Just ask Archimedes.”
From High Risk Factors to Heart Healthy! -by Garey Simmons, Optimal Health Bridge
In 2005 I was diagnosed with a heart condition that could have spelled an early demise (stroke, heart attack or sudden death). Let me translate: I want to be healthy enough and live long enough to play with my grandkids for Pete’s sake. You can read on down this page or download the free report. The downloadable report has more pictures and NIH studies listed. Click here to download my story and 10 clinical abstracts from NIH and Universities attesting to the Power of High Potency Omega-3 to greatly reduce High Risks factors of heart disease.
My Heart Health Story
My Doctor was surprised when I refused the medication, but was very pleased when my triglycerides fell by 300 points in only 2 months! True Omega-3 will change your life! Here’s what happened to me: In June 2005, I received really bad news from my doctor. My triglycerides were in the RED ZONE – “High Risk” for stroke. The ambulance sirens went off in my head! 508 was the count to be exact. 508 became my magic number. In life, sometimes there are little keys given to you that unlock big doors. 508 was a little key for me that opened a big door exposing a problem that I had neglected for 15 years. Once you hit “500” you are “high risk” for heart disease. LDLs were high and the HDLs were real low. Ratios were terrible.
The doctor prescribed some pharmaceuticals but I wasn’t buying. When you read about all the dangerous and nasty side effects of statin drugs, you will understand why. I hadn’t taken an antibiotic in 30 years. This was not the time to start going pharmaceutical.
“True Omega-3 saved my life!”
Now my friends call me the Omega-3 Man!” I was about 15 lbs overweight, had that spare tire growing around the mid-section. My liver was not in good shape from a bout of hepatitis I contracted while on a mission in India way back in 1976. An ultrasound was ordered. Results show I have a “fatty” liver! Enough was enough. The time for change had come! What is your magic number? What is your little key that is going to unlock your big door? This was my motivation to make significant changes in my life and in my health regimen!
Wake Up Call and Commitment
This time became a “wake up call” knowing that I had to make some drastic changes in my life if I was ever going to get back in shape and take charge of my life, instead of letting chaos and health challenges ruin me. I stopped eating beef (for the most part). I love beef! I met Joe Theisman, the NFL Hall of Fame Quarterback. He was the keynote at a tradeshow. He had stopped eating beef 20 years ago. “Why Joe?””Not only have we got hormone problems with the beef, but did you know it takes 3 days to digest or longer? I haven’t got time to digest for 3 days, I am a busy man!” I will still enjoy the occasional steak but at least I know if I choose to eat beef, I have my work cut out for me and I better get my exercise in! I joined a gym and found out they offered classes for free and I made some commitments. Think about this: A personal trainer can run you $50 – $75 an hour. If you join a Gym, and take advantage of the free classes such as Yoga, Body Flow, Body Pump, RPM (cycling), etc., then you can get “personal” instruction included in the price of the membership. Most of the classes I take have 3 to 8 people in attendance. Not only do I get “personal” instruction, I have the added benefit of the support and chemistry involved in a group activity. Let’s see: I take on average 3-4 free classes a week (there are literally 40 hours of group classes scheduled!) and my membership costs $40 a month. That works out to about $2.87 per class hour. This of course doesn’t take into account the unlimited number of hours that the gym is open to me with over one million dollars in various workout equipment if I choose to use it. If I do a measly two hours a week in the gym using all this great equipment then my fee per hour reduces to under $1.80. There is some unique value there. But you say, what if I don’t go? Well, that’s where you gotta have some commitment.
I decided I was willing to do what’s hard. I decided to act in spite of my fears. I committed that I was bigger than any obstacle and that I would never give up. These were powerful commitments. No one said it’s easy but complicated it is not. The philosophy of the Enlightened Warrior became my creed. A warrior by definition is one who goes about “to conquer.”An Enlightened Warrior is one who seeks to “conquer oneself.” How tough is that? Well, try breaking a life long habit! Here’s a challenge: Try a Yoga! You will learn a lot about conquering yourself! Of all exercise routines, yoga is my favorite. I have a great teacher and I come away from a one hour yoga class, exercised to be sure, but feeling refreshed and centered. There are many men taking yoga today and it’s a great place to meet the ladies, so there is not enough good to be said about signing up for a weekly yoga class!
True Omega-3 to the Rescue!
Will the first sign of heart disease be sudden death?
I had heard about Omega-3s on the Radio and figured this was the time to put up or shut up. I called in and ordered a 3 month supply of the full line of products. Was it hard to shell out a few hundred bucks? Well, how much did I want to pay the doctors and hospitals? Thousands? That would be the ultimate in being penny-wise pound foolish! I can’t really say I had the money for it but I did have a credit card and didn’t want to have a stroke or heart attack! What do you value most?
For a lot of people, the first symptom of heart disease is a heart attack! A full 50% of those end in a medical condition known as “sudden death”. Did I really want to suffer a heart attack or was I going to stop being chintzy and playing around with my health and my heart?
After 3 months of taking the product, I went for a retest. My triglycerides were down to 200! -A drop of 308 points. I lost 15 lbs. Healthy “good oils” and going to the gym can help you lose weight! I lost 3 inches off my waist and pant size. I became a believer. Will these supplements do it all? Actually I think they would, but I am honestly telling you my story and what I did to change my habits which includes not being a slouch, getting my body moving, and eating sensibly.
I recently read a Harvard Medical Journal on the centenarian studies going on around the world. The common key ingredient for those who are living to 100 is that they move their bodies, and keep their minds active. So think about it. Do something good for yourself! I can tell you from firsthand experience that Omega-3s contained in True Omega-3 do a lot more than help keep your heart health in check. Dr Ray Crayhon says, “Omega-3s are not in your brain, they are your brain!” It’s not conclusive but he and many, many other researchers now believe that sufficient dosing of Omega-3s daily may prevent Alzheimer’s Disease. It is your brain! Dosing with True Omega-3 helps me to think better, and feel better. No matter if you eat fish or not, this is a sure way of getting a quality source of Omega-3s daily. No worries about toxicity associated with statin drugs OR worrying about the mercury content of the fish you may purchase from the market. And now I want you to do something good for yourself. I am distributing powerful Omega-3 products because they work. The best thing one can do with one’s life is be involved with something you are passionate about. What Jerry is to Subway, Garey is to True Omega-3! Maybe I will be on TV one day telling my story! It’s a simple story, it’s true and I hope you can take advantage and improve your health. P.S. Now at age 55, I am now a fully committed heart healthy person! (I am 61 in 2014! Crazy. I wrote this over six years ago!) Will you make the same commitment? Remember, happiness is a mode of travel, not the destination! Being joyful, healthful and inspired is your Ultimate Calling! PPS In my opinion, and that of millions of others is that there is a huge gaping hole in the nutrition consumed in the United States. It begins with deficiencies in Omega-3s. Omega-3s are called Essential Fatty Acids. No, these do not make you fat. You actually lose weight by replacing Omega-6s(regular vegetable based cooking oil) with Omega-3s. Understand Omega-3s are basic cellular building blocks. 1 or 2 capsules a day are good but not enough. We don’t take one or two bites of food a day and say, “We’re done!” We eat for sufficiency and then we eat for pleasure! So with Omega-3s, eat for sufficiency to cure the deficiency. Therapeutically there really is no dose too big and I encourage you in consultation with your health care adviser to take 3-4 capsules in the morning and 3-4 capsules in the evening before bed. Omega-3s are a natural anti-inflammatory and also act to thin the blood and keep the arteries clear. By doing so, you are be part of what a Harvard trained cardiologist called “the startling effect of Omega-3s” – it’s ability to prevent heart attacks and stroke. Last point: Not all “Omega-3s” are created equal. True Omega-3 is a premium, high potency, high quality product that is produced under strict GMP guidelines. It’s the real deal. The same cannot be said for run of the mill oils purchased off the store shelves. One must know and trust the source. With True Omega-3 you can be sure you are taking the best!
Thank you for writing your blog. Keep writing. I love to hear about your lessons and tips. They’ve helped me so much!

Why Choose Optimal Health Bridge: (From Stan, Military Pilot Retired, 1st Gulf War.) “If you haven’t learned about the numerous benefits to adding supplemental Omega 3 to your diet, I’d encourage you to check out what you are missing. I know every product description tries to convince you that it will greatly improve your life, so I understand your skepticism.
I can tell you from personal experience that HIGH QUALITY Omega 3 supplements really HAVE made a SUBSTANTIAL difference in the health of my family and friends. It’s not an instantaneous transformation. Give it 4-6 weeks for a fair assessment. However, while it’s true I’d like everyone to consider using Omega 3 supplements in their diet, I’m really writing this review to those who already use the product and are looking for a good source. YOU FOUND IT at Optimal Health Bridge. I used Res-Q 1250 for years, and made purchases during their specials to keep the price as low as possible.
Why Advantage Autoship Simplicity: TRUE OMEGA 3 is virtually the same capsule as Res-Q with a price tag much easier to absorb. If you’ll look at the contents you’ll see the similarity for yourself in the actual dosage of DHA and EPA. If you go onto OHB’s Advantage Autoship Program (which I highly recommend) the price is the lowest you’ll find ANYWHERE and the shipping is free, paid for by the company to encourage your continued use of the auto ship program. This helps to keep everyone’s costs low, allows to easy modifications and you never run out of needed nutritional supplements.
Once you order from these people you’ll begin to understand why I’m willing to provide such an enthusiastic testimonial to their product and to their company. They provide the friendliness and assistance that you might get from a local store, but they keep their margins razor thin. I appreciate local business and support them when I can, but this is one time where I can get all the benefits of using a local business and save well over $1000 annually in supplement costs. If all this seems too good to be true, call the company and ask to speak with Garey, the owner. You’ll be transferred to him or he will return your call within a day (barring unusual situations.)
I have admittedly come to think of Garey as a friend, which is the first time an internet supplier has become one of my personal friends.
You’ll get the same attention if you’ll call him with any questions or concerns. You’ll find he believes his business is not merely a way to support his family; rather he is on a “mission” to spread the word about the huge benefits of Omega 3 in fighting heart disease among other ailments. He has other supplements as well, but he limits his inventory to proven, useful supplements. You won’t find him promoting fad products or cheap imitations. He created his own brand so he could control with precision the quality of his True Omega. These people and this product will NOT disappoint you. Give yourself a fighting chance against heart disease and other inflammatory issues by trying the product for 4-6 weeks. Talk to Garey about the dosage you should be taking since it really depends on your personal situation and health.
Advantage Auto Ship Simplicity is Better Than the Platinum Program
