Roger Haeske is a health and fitness coach, and after going through some difficult times in his life with his mental and physical health, he ended up finding his very own fountain of youth. It’s basically just positive vibes, which is huge if you’re aware of the emerging science behind the mind-body connection, a diet predominately full of raw fruits and vegetables, and a good amount of physical exercise.
Obviously, there are a lot of people that disagree with this, and when it comes to our health it’s not always one size fits all.
As you can see from the video below, Roger is clearly in tip top shape and really looks healthy and youthful for his age. So, when it comes to his first secret, a vegetarian diet full of predominately raw fruits and vegetables, it makes sense. Dr. Deepak Bhatt, a Harvard Medical School professor and Editor-in-Chief of the Harvard Heart Letter emphasizes,
Basically, when you take a look at caloric restriction studies, many of them show a prolonged lifespan as well as an increased ability to fight chronic disease.
“Calorie restriction (CR) extends life span and retards age-related chronic diseases in a variety of species, including rats, mice, fish, flies, worms, and yeast. The mechanism or mechanisms through which this occurs are unclear.”
The quote above is from a review of literature that is more than 10 years old. The work presented here is now showing some of these mechanisms that were previously unclear.
This brings me into another important point, the power fasting, which, like caloric restriction, turns out to have a tremendous amount of health benefits, and basically has the ability to regenerate your entire immune system. The science behind fasting is truly incredible, and based on my research and experience, it’s definitely a life changer for those who incorporate it into their lifestyle, but, it requires a lot of research.

When it comes to the mind-body connection, the research and proof is abundant, there is enough to warrant the use of these practices inside of hospitals, without a doubt. Why do I say this? Because as far back as 1999, statistics professor Jessica Utts at UC Irvine, published a paper showing that parapsychological experiments have produced much stronger results than those showing a daily dose of aspirin helps to prevent heart attacks. Utts also showed that these results are much stronger than the research behind various drugs like antiplatelets.
The interaction of our thoughts with the physical material world is of huge interest today, garnering increasing attention by academics around the world. Despite a wealth of scientific data showing that one can influence the other, and even more evidence proving that certain emotional states can lead to chronic illness, many who work in mainstream medicine remain entirely ignorant of these concepts.
Perhaps this is why more and more people are gravitating towards alternative forms of medicine. As Garth Cook from Scientific American points out:
“A growing body of scientific research suggests that our mind can play an important role in healing our body — or in staying healthy in the first place. . . There are now several lines of research suggesting that our mental perception of the world constantly informs and guides our immune system in a way that makes us better able to respond to future threats. That was a sort of ‘aha’ moment for me — where the idea of an entwined mind and body suddenly made more scientific sense than an ephemeral consciousness that’s somehow separated from our physical selves.”

I think it’s important to share the information and articles linked above because at the end of the day, it’s really time to question what we are doing on our planet, and have been doing for a long time. It’s hard to propose new ways of doing things to a human race that’s been doing something for so long, but it’s a step that’s always been taken throughout human history. We go through drastic changes and major global paradigm shifts, and one seems to be happening right now with regards to meat eating, from a compassionate, health, and environmental standpoint.
