What do we mean by Holistic Health?
Holistic Health is the process by which we assume responsibility for our health and well- being.
Holistic Health observes the entire being, the Physical, Mental, Emotional, and Spiritual.
Holistic Health approaches agree that the body and mind are not separate and that they are intimately connected.
Holistic Health seeks out the problems, rather than trying to cover up the symptoms.
Holistic Health involves all modalities, Allopathic as well as the complementary approaches; keeping in mind that
the ultimate goal is to alleviate the problem, not mask the symptoms.

Hi, I'm Michael, a down-home boy from South Dakota. I've lived a lot of life and I'm now ready to give a little
back. (If I'd known I was going to live this long, I would have taken better care of myself.)
I know/understand that wisdom is gained by experience but I also believe that insight from others who have gone
before can be equally important.
My life has run parallel paths. As with many of us, I was raised in a very dis-functional family - inside I was
a mess but the illusion I presented to the outside world was one of being in control. A leader on the outside,
a insecure little boy on the inside. I learned how to work hard as a child - my own paper route at age 8 till I
was 15. When I gave it up at age 15, my father labeled me as a quitter. I finished High School, held various jobs
and took in a year of college, sold encyclopedias door to door for almost a year, worked for AMF, on the Titan
II missile program and then joined the Navy, who was so kind as to teach me Electronics.
I spent 7 years in the Navy, 3 1/2 years on Submarines and 3 1/2 years teaching Electronics. It was at this time
that my life (career) started taking parallel paths. While on submarines I self taught myself Hypnosis and used
it to help others with various life challenges (plus a little party fun here and there.)
In (1967) while teaching Electronics at the Treasure Island naval station, I was selected to teach Aerobics, a
new exercise concept developed by Dr. Kenneth Cooper. By (1976) I was fully entrenched in corporate America, working
my way up the corporate ladder. It was at that time that I joined Shaklee Corporation, a network marketing company
and began to seriously study nutrition.
By the 80's I had worked my way into that cherished Senior V.P., position I had always wanted and was working 10
to 12 hours a day, 6 days a week, building (their) dreams and not my own. So, in 1987, an associate and I formed
our own company with a totally new concept in advertising. Four and a half years, $850,000 later, with contracts
with 94.6% of the Grocery Chains across the U.S. and major discussions and tentative ongoing contracts with some
major corporations we had to close the doors due to lack of initial capital financing.
Now, I can say; "Oh Well", but at the time I was having some chronic back spasms. I visited Orthopedic
surgeons, Physical Therapists, Chiropractors, Dr's of Acupuncture, Massage Therapists, you name it If I thought
it could help, I sought it out. I read Dr. Sarno's book, Mind Over Back Pain, in which he states: "As we hurt
more, we do less, as we do less, we tighten up more, as we tighten up more, we hurt more." A vicious circle.
So, I started working out more, 6 days a week, 1 ½ hrs. per day. It helped some but not a lot. One day at
the fitness center a man introduced me to a nutritional product. Eleven days later I noticed a profound change.
I could put on my own socks, myself, without help. Wow!!
It was during this time, that I did a life examination and realized that one of my paradigms: That you work hard,
play hard, you break, go to a Doctor, he fixes you, so you can continue to work hard and play hard. It was with
that realization / awareness, that I understood that it was up to me to change. In retrospect, those problems were
the best thing that could have ever happened to me. I have moved into the arena of Healing. Working with solutions
instead of the symptoms. Working from the aspect of prevention instead of treatment. Knowing and understanding
that "Together (with a Higher Power working in my life) I Can" have a tremendous impact on myself, others
and this world in which we live.
My goal today is to assist one million people, directly or indirectly to become happy, joyous, and free to live
a GOD filled life. My hope is that YOU decide to join US on the Journey.
Yours in Opulence,
