I want you to read this book for free if you have ANY worries about any of the above or just the effects of growing older.
If your trust in the western medical model is waning or is less than 100%. I need you to know there is another way, a better way. Our western medical model is great for addressing acute injury and can do a lot to get you out of pain for the short term, but fails in the area of chronic disease. Pills and medications can treat symptoms but they all have side effects which can cause more trouble later on.

In fact, it’s a proven statistic that the more medicines you take the higher your chance of succumbing to ill health from the negative so called side effects of the medications.
My name is Garey Simmons, I am a holistically trained integrative nutrition health coach. I studied functional medicine through lifestyle with the nations’ most gifted healers, both MDs Medical Doctors and NDs Naturopathic Doctors. I’ve personally helped thousands of people improve their health by helping them to make a few changes to their lifestyle and nutrition.
But you want to know something interesting?
Just a few short years ago…
I was diagnosed with very High Triglycerides, and I fit the description of having metabolic syndrome. Rarely spoken about in doctors’ offices but pervasive in this country. In short, I was ripe for heart attack or stroke, like many Americans…
I was 53 years old at the time and, after serving as a missionary in foreign lands for 30 years, I needed to make changes not only for my own health but for the needs of my many children! (I have 10 kids 5 girls and 5 boys.) You can’t just have a bunch of kids then run off and have a heart attack and leave this earth.
We have responsibilities here. Agreed?
Then one day, almost by accident, I discovered a secret way of taming my high-risk factors in an easy decision and adopting a regimen that have served me to this day. And it only takes 30 seconds a day!
In fact, with this secret…I got hooked onto a journey that’s allowed me to coach and help countless thousands of folks just like me. Of course, along the way, I took many natural holistic health courses that backed up and bolstered my beliefs in adopting the right practices. Why do you think Navy Seals train and train and train before they are deployed to danger zones? They are building habits and rituals that allow them to do difficult things immediately and impossible things take just take a little longer.
If you haven’t noticed. Our Medical System is now broken.
Here’s some complaints about the medical profession
Now every business has their challenges or steep overhead costs and the medical system has grown to be an unquenchable money suck. The best an MD can do once they are in practice is to try to alleviate pain and suffering using prescription medications. That’s their shortcuts!
Do you think doctors have time and want to teach you how to eat, when to eat, what to eat. How to exercise? How to destress your mind and your life?
MD’s unfortunately die the youngest, suffer the most suicides outside of psychiatrists, and are generally not very well themselves. Is this who we are trusting with our health?
But there is a better way.
With the advent of our ability to store and share information, it is now possible to share natural holistic health practices online for literally pennies on the dollar. Yes, some of us have chosen this as a profession but you do not have to gain the knowledge you need to overcome these aging induced chronic illnesses. All you need is a new lens to look through. A way to parse information.
The lens is MEDS
But it’s not the meds you take for your symptoms or illnesses. It stands for
Here’s how it works:
You’ve all heard these clichés:
This is simply perspective: Desire, beliefs and commitment all arise out of mind state. But so does stress, anxiety, and depression! It’s chemical yes, but these chemicals are manufactured by the body in answer to the needs the mind perceives you need or even desire.
But there’s much more to mind state or even mind-body and its connection.
There’s the conscious mind, there is the subconscious mind and the unconscious mind. How do this work together and how do each of these affect your day to day health?
Ask any doctor who has been in practice 20+ years and ask them about “spontaneous remission.”
They don’t use words like “healing” but that is what it is. Spontaneous remission is an unexplainable turnaround. It’s literally a miracle.
In these incidences, the recipient of spontaneous remission tapped into something the rest of us may be unaware of. If we are willing to learn and explore, isn’t it possible that others can get similar results?
There is much more to share about this first quadrant. But if get Mind State right, then Exercise, Diet and Sleep fall into place.
Look at it this way,
Your mind, body and spirit reside in between the two worlds. On the dotted line. Our beliefs arise from our databanks of events you’ve been recording since inception. Even while in the womb you have hard coded programs that are inherited within your DNA are your genetics. Our internal programming govern results we see in physical bodies and the outside world.
Herein lies the secret to abundant and optimal health.
You can follow any diet, choose to exercise or not, try to influence sleep with pills and potions but nothing will change working from the top down. You have to work from the bottom up. You have to defy the forces of gravity with simple knowledge. Awareness is the first step on the path to optimal health.
What are your options?
You can try to find a competent Naturopathic Doctor. But it will cost you. Insurance rarely covers visits to alternative care practitioners.
You may try to find a medical doctor who is trained in functional medicine. There are maybe 50 top docs in the nation and they’ve trained another set of dedicated, pragmatic, skilled physicians but they are still difficult to locate.
Here’s the description of a Functional Medicine MD.
In her early days of practicing medicine, Dr. Connealy noticed something peculiar: while patients were being prescribed medication for their ailments, few seemed to be improving. In fact, many seemed to get sicker. This led Dr. Connealy down the path of integrative and complementary therapies, looking for the root cause of illnesses and combining traditional medicine with nutritional and lifestyle options to treating disease.
Today, Dr. Connealy is the medical director of the Center for New Medicine, which she founded. She’s also opened the Cancer Center for Healing. She’s become renowned for her whole-person approach to treating cancer, outlined in her recent book “The Cancer Revolution.” While she doesn’t discount the place that therapies like chemotherapy and radiation have in treatment, Dr. Connealy focuses on addressing some of the key causes of cancer through natural approaches.
Here’s a simple piece of advice: Prevention is better than treatment… This goes for heart disease, cancer and other chronic illnesses. It is significantly more effective to prevent than to treat. Don’t smoke, don’t drink alcohol in excess, reduce your intake of sugar and processed foods, get some exercise every day, and eat some “god-damn” vegetables.
But let me ask you a simple question, who is really responsible for the health you have right now? There is only one answer: It’s you. We can blame the government. We can blame food policy. We can blame our health care system. Who cares? No one really. Your desire to live healthy has to come from you.
My MEDS program is maybe better seen as a preparatory program to lead you through your golden years without the need for prescription medications. Learning to rely more on the Inner Game of holistic health. This is exactly with Dr. Connealy is saying, we must look at the whole body. While it’s a wondrous physiological device made up of trillions of cells all communicating and synergistically working together, it’s not just a physical machine. There is the inner game, that needs prodding to move in the right direction. Then there is the outer game of the environment in which we live in terms of health and stress that seeks weigh us down and lessen our chances of optimal health.
If this kind of thinking resonates with you keep watching!
I want you to imagine waking up when you are 80 years old and for your birthday, you are at base camp under Mount Kilimanjaro, your goal is to celebrate the turn of the decade at the peak. You are at your peak, ready to scale to the peak!
Do you get the picture of what’s possible? Here’s my friend Werner Berger who did exactly that in 2017.
Contrast that with My dad who was on oxygen in his mid-sixties… Can you see the difference in outcomes?
So, imagine yourself at age 85 attending your great granddaughter’s graduation from college. Helping to celebrate a third generation by your presence, fully able to celebrate, mentally and physically.
Your 60s, 70s, or even 80s doesn’t have to be endless medications, endless doctors’ appointments, endless days of boredom because you are home bound with the inability to drive a car anymore, needing a walker to navigate from room to room.
Can we agree we’d rather paint a rosier goal for our futures?
If you get started today, even just 15 minutes of study and implementing new practices that are easy, not hard, then you are going to be a sought after “guru” among your circle because you know something your peers don’t.
If you need a more glaring picture, just think of your own parents or aunts and uncles…What’s their health like? Is that the outcome you are fearing? It doesn’t have to be. Not by a long shot! Your friends are going to be begging you for advice on how you do it!
Here’s the goal: If you are on prescription medication, we’ll show you how to improve your health to the point, it may not be needed any longer. Many medications are given as stop gap measures. Doctors, as busy as they are, will see their prescription is not working as effectively and will add another. It’s all too common that the medical community gets you started on one prescription and before the year is up, you are on three or four. A few years later you could be having up to 10 medications and suffering so many more symptoms and no one doctor can figure out what is causing those night sweats.
The problem with that approach is similar to the check engine light coming on in your car. You can go to the garage and try to find the cause, or you can take a piece of black tape and cover the light. Medications for the most part try to turn down the signals your body is giving you that something is wrong.
The classic example is to give a cortisone injection to relieve back pain. Then you feel so great you decide to be more active, and you add a more severe injury to an already injured area. The band aid in this case causes a more severe injury and adds months to the recovery. The original cause of the injury needs investigation and treatment from a physical therapist or a chiropractor to heal the injured area rather than just covering up or masking the pain. There is a cascading effect and unfortunately this is how the medical sick care system thrives. Because you never see any true healing, just infinite masking of symptoms.
In MEDS, we’re looking at the long-term goal of substantially changing your health, with the short-term view of making small changes on a routine basis. The journey to the top of Mount Everest starts the same, with a single step.
We’ll dispose of and eliminate myths that surround our sick-care system, that are in place purposely to keep you coming back for more. More pills, more consultations, more specialists. Keeping you well is NOT the goal of the medical system. In fact, you being well and healthy would eventually bankrupt today’s medical system. For example, after 13 years of living this kind of lifestyle, I take no prescription medications, none.
This is really a program of re-education…
To really learn the material in this program you’d have to spend thousands and thousands of dollars in university & research. But now you don’t have to. It’s all done for you.
How much does the MEDS program cost? Download the book for free. In the book, I’ll introduce you to a companion online course that is also free. So, do you really have anything to lose?
