Each group may function slightly differently but both strive to make all people physically and mentally productive in order to ultimately enhance performance, health, and ultimately longevity.

“We cannot continue to 'fix the car after it is broken' and treat diseases only after they occur. New strategies must embrace disease prevention through lifestyle choices such as proper nutrition, dietary supplements, stress reduction, and increased physical activity, rather than playing 'catch-up' for already established conditions. “
