Part 1: The revolution starts with you. - Paul Chek

In this special edition 3-part series of the Wellness Force Radio Podcast, Author of How to Eat, Move and Be Healthy, Creator of the PPS Success Mastery Program, Founder of the C.H.E.K. Institute, Paul Chek, joins us to uncover the truth about where we truly are as a nation and a world when it comes to health, wellness, and sustainability. 


What actions can you do to become a better universal citizen of today's modern world?

Paul shares the specifics on how you can build a deeper connection with nature, The 4 "doctors" everyone should follow, and why focusing on yourself first doesn't only lead to a more fulfilling life, but a better world for all sentient beings.

Discover why being a healthy human means returning back to our most basic principles in the way we love ourselves, our body, and others. 



Your core is everything! If you don’t have a healthy, functional core, it doesn’t matter what your health goals are – breaking your PR in the marathon, recovering from an injury, regaining your shape after a pregnancy – it simply isn’t going to happen, and especially not in any long-term way.

The Healthy Core Cycle Checklist is designed to help you remove common sources of gut inflammation, maximize the rest you need, and choose the right starter exercise to help you build a fit, functional and aesthetically pleasing core.

This simple and handy checklist, will:

  • Address common diet, rest, and work-life balance stresses that cause gut inflammation
  • Assess your current core function
  • Prescribe simple, effective exercises to build your core
  • Prioritize your plan of attack to address the most important lifestyle factors 

If you’re a fitness professional, the checklist will be a great resource and guide for your clients. When they follow the checklist, not only will they achieve a healthy core, but they’ll look and feel better, and have so much more energy. They will definitely thank you for the resource!

Power Quotes From Part 1

"The human body is a very complex, cybernetic system and scientific double-blinded research is both isolating information and presenting very bold assertions about the body without realizing that there could also be a knock-on effect.  Science is good at objectifying snapshots about your health but they don't tell you a single thing about how you became ill. Your mind and body become ill when you don't live a natural life in harmony with the earth, stars, and universe." - Paul Chek

"Man will continue to invent technologies outside of himself until he realizes that every technology he builds is actually already present within himself. The question is, 'Will he destroy the earth before he figures it out?' " - Paul Chek quoting Rudolf Steiner.

"Today, people cannot focus, think, nor want to do the work and they want everything quick. Society is now at a place where if we don't become conscious in a timely matter, we could collapse at any moment." - Paul Chek 

“There is more to food than just feeding your body. The physical body feeds on food, the emotional body feeds on emotions, and the mental body feeds on thoughts and ideas. Today, there are so many ideas and we’re confused; we don’t know who to believe. So, we end up with a mental hunger for the truth. Because our mind isn’t satiated, we don’t feel safe and we end up emotionally hungry for connection.” - Paul Chek

"When you grow your own food, hunt it, or eat it with your hands, you don't only experience a level of physical satiation but a higher level of emotional connection and satisfaction with the earth as well." - @PaulChek on @WellnessForce Radio
