One Book + Walking shoes VS One TRILLION $$ for medical care and drugs

medical and money

Cost of one book ($12.00) + Cost of walking shoes (under $50.00)


$1, 165, 000,000,000.00 dollars per year for medical care and drugs


-Is it possible that one $12.00 book, a 5 hour investment in reading time, and one pair of walking shoes is all it will take for over 60% of Americans to finally regain their health and wellness?  (The book can be found in libraries, brick and mortar bookstores, or online booksellers right now).

-Can this scientifically proven and medically sound book teach the US what has never been shared about the most effective way to lose weight, keep it off, decrease high blood sugar, bad cholesterol, blood pressure, triglycerides, inflammation, and insulin levels?

-Can this “read it today and begin following it tomorrow” program really increase sagging Vitamin D levels, good cholesterol, energy,  as well as mental focus and concentration?

-Can living a lifestyle designed to match metabolic needs (instead leading a lifestyle that works against them) really prevent or treat metabolic syndrome, pre- diabetes, type 2 diabetes, overweight, obesity, PCOS, hypertension, high cholesterol, GERD, Alzheimer’s disease, osteopenia and osteoporosis, cancers of the breast, colon, prostate, ovaries, pancreas, and skin?

-Can one easy to understand and follow program slash medical and prescription bills for all these diseases and medical conditions?

-And if so, why isn’t this proven lifestyle program being promoted by major medical associations like the American Medical Association, American Diabetes Association, American Cancer Society. Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, American Heart Association?


One program…the same program….can make all the health difference in the world.  One program, the same program, can help Americans regain their health, permanently lose weight, and decrease medication doses and types; maybe even get people off most or all of their costly medications.

If such a program exists, why wouldn’t everyone know about it?

Sadly, keeping this program out of the public eye may help fuel lucrative medical conditions, illnesses, and pharmaceuticals.

Here are some unbelievable financial facts about the amount of money generated when Americans become and remain ill. The figures shown are annual stats.

Diabetes :

$245 billion in 2012.  This figure represents a 41 percent increase over the previous five year period.


$42.9 billion  in 2010, with almost half ($20.4 billion) in the form of prescription medications.

Cardiovascular disease: (heart disease and stroke)….

$18.7 billion for cholesterol medications. 

$109 billion for coronary heart disease; projected to double by 2030.

$54billion for the cost of treating strokes, projected to nearly triple to 140 billion by 2030.

PCOS  (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome)

4.35 billion for the cost of evaluating and providing care to reproductive aged PCOS women in the US



$190 billionof added medical costs annually stemming from obesity related problems. 

Obesity among childrenand adolescents:

From 1980-1999, annual hospital costs related to obesity among children and adolescents increased, rising from $35 million to $127 million.

Overweight ; $100 billion is the range spent on diet products in the US

Anxiety disorder Over $42 billion per year , almost 1/3 of the US total mental health bill.  

Osteoporosis and bone fractures: In 2005, $16 billion direct medical expected to rise to $25 billion by 2030.

Cancer:  216.6 billion: As of 2009, the annual total cost of cancer in the US: 


Add up the total health care costs for these serious medical conditions and illnesses, and it is clear that over 1 TRILLION dollars per year is generated from these diseases.  This money goes to the medical and pharmaceutical industry.  If they were to promote an inexpensive lifestyle change that would markedly decrease doctor interventions, hospital visits,  and costly medications, they would lose billions of dollars per year.

Perhaps if the major medical associations would admit that The Metabolism Miracle and The Diabetes Miracle lifestyle programs help to prevent weight -related health conditions as well as significantly decrease the cost of medical care and pharmaceutical bills needed to treat these illnesses, the book would be part of every school curriculum, the basis for Nutrition Facts labeling, encouraged as a “must read” in doctor’s offices, and in every home in the US.

The associations (AMA, ADA, AND, AHA) have copies of the books and have reviewed them.  Not one correction was made to the information contained in the program. 

The Metabolism Miracle and The Diabetes Miracle are now available around the world, licensed in 6 languages (including Mainland Chinese), and are helping to improve the health and quality of life for many thousands of people.

But…that is not good enough.  Word of mouth is no way to promote a life- saving program.  It is time for the Centers for Disease Control, the AMA, ADA, AND, ACS, and others to back The Diabetes Miracle and The Metabolism Miracle.


Will they promote the programs for the majority of their patients who would benefit from them?

                                        Probably not. 

Why wouldn’t they? 

This inexpensive program would cost THEM money in income, hospital stays, medical interventions, tests, and prescription medications.


But, YOU now have the information and can begin the program immediately.

The Metabolism Miracle is designed for those who have a variety of the following conditions:

Objective parameters: Increasing weight, midline fat, increasing blood pressure, cholesterol, triglycerides, hemoglobin A1C, insulin level, TSH

It’s time for the word to get out on a large scale.  Everyone deserves the chance to learn about this way of living; a way that truly promotes health, wellness, and increased quality of life with fewer medications and medical interventions.

 I would welcome working together with individuals or groups who are interested in philanthropically funding a program to spread the word and save countless lives.  I also welcome speaking engagements and interviews on the topic of using The Metabolism Miracle and The Diabetes Miracle  to promote health for ourselves and future generations.
