“Let yourself be drawn by the stronger pull of that which you truly love.”
Jalaluddin Rumi

Optimal health and performance mandate an integrative approach to the whole person.
Wellness is an inside-out proposition.

You cannot move forward unless you honestly assess your current position on the wellness continuum. This is often difficult to swallow. It requires a decision. It means no out-clause exists. A decision implies accountability.

The principles of Performance Medicine™ will help you blaze a path from the trailhead of confusion to the summit of your desired health, wellness, and performance outcomes. Our comprehensive approach will mindfully piece together the fragmented analytical mayhem en route to your True Nature.

Propel your life to a new level of authenticity. Discover from within the answers to cultivate self-actualization by mastering the difference between effort and struggle in life and sport.

We must mindfully embrace difficulty and risk to manifest the keys to our mansion of unparalleled health, performance, and potential. Synergy represents the cornerstone to optimal wellness. Harmonizing the principles of Performance Medicine™ is the key to synergy from the inside out.

Mindfulness delineates effort from struggle in life and sport. It is a path to vibrant health and effervescent living. It is a decision to thrive versus exist on the wellness continuum.

“Dyin’ ain’t much of a livin’…”
“The Outlaw Josey Wales”

Lifestyles are determined by habit.
One of the most insidious aspects of habit is its ability to dull your awareness and discipline.

Metabolic Syndrome [MetS] remains one of the most pressing health concerns of our time. It is the most potent health crisis in America and its global proliferation cannot be ignored. It is a lifestyle disease stemming from our habits.

Metabolic Efficiency™ [ME™] is a key component of Performance Medicine™ and represents the catalyst to optimal health and performance. Its profound impact on mitigating biomarkers {Metabolic Inefficiency} while maximizing endurance sport performance is unparalleled.

Hundreds of testimonials from endurance athletes, active individuals, and non-exercisers praise the life-changing impact of the principles of Performance Medicine™ in their daily lives. It is a [w]holistic and integrative path designed to catalyze lifestyle changes in each dimension of wellness. ME™ is the key to coming full circle.

The ME™ concept is not only for competitive athletes. It does not matter whether you want to improve your lifestyle and health or attain podium finishes as an endurance athlete. Behavior modification techniques remain the foundation to innovative nutrition and exercise strategies.

The far-reaching benefits of the ME™ concept include life-altering changes for individuals related to decreasing body fat and body weight. ME™ imparts an emphasis on health and performance for endurance athletes, fitness enthusiasts and anyone who desires optimal health.

Athletes praise the fact they no longer need to consume nearly the amount of simple sugars during training or competition. Their hourly caloric needs are significantly decreased because their bodies are more efficient at oxidizing fat at higher intensities.

Optimal energy level throughout the day represents merely one of a plethora of benefits of ME™.
The foremost health effects for individuals who implement the concept of ME™ include:

  • Reversal of pre-diabetes;
  • Significant reduction in risk factors for Metabolic Syndrome [MetS] and cardiovascular disease;
  • Complete discontinuation of medications taken due to disease states;
  • Decreased risk of chronic and degenerative diseases

“Act without expectation.”
Lao Tzu

Specific research dedicated to the concept of ME™ and long-term feeding studies is lacking. This is due to the exorbitant cost and resources necessary to fund feeding studies longer than a month. It is important to realize there are scientific studies available to validate the nutrition implementation strategies respective to ME™.

The strong link between improved health and ME™ will inevitably open the door to research grants examining its symbiotic relationship. When studies are funded we will soon see the performance effects tested in laboratory settings.

Keep in mind it is difficult to test real-life conditions in a laboratory. Because this is a behavior modification, it requires weeks to months to develop and tweak. Laboratory studies do not usually pinpoint this type of long-term data, but rather, depend on longitudinal data comparing physiological changes such as blood work, weight and body composition.

The concept of ME™ has been effectively implemented by hundreds of individual with immense success. It is a valid strategy to improve health and performance in all types of individuals. The concept of ME™ has been molded from nutrition science, biochemistry and physiology principles.

ME™ is not a diet. A diet is temporary without long-lasting results. ME™ is a nutrition and exercise plan that embraces long-term commitment and change. It should be simple and sustainable both in the short and long-terms.

Inefficient conversion of food to fuel silently wreaks havoc from the inside out. Acute inflammation from an ankle sprain running trails is far different from chronic inflammation catalyzing the “Diseases of Affluence”.

The first and most effective course of action to remedy MetS health markers is lifestyle change. Poor dietary habits combined with a sedentary lifestyle are the forerunners to MetS symptoms.

“Mastery is the natural result of mindfulness.”
Ron Kurtz
