Positive Empowerment For You

In 2004, Author Dan Buettner gathered a group
of anthropologists, demographers, epidemiologists
and other researchers to travel around the world
to study communities with surprisingly high
percentages of centenarians (people living over 100
years of age).

As this group of experts identified the longest living
cultures, they drew concentric circles (in blue marker)
on a map, ultimately known as Blue Zones. It was a
concerted effort, and a year later, Buettner wrote a
book titled Blue Zones where he describes the every-
day lives of the 5 longest living people groups in
the world.
• Sardinia, Italy
• Loma Linda, CA
• Ikaria, Greece
• Okinawa, Japan
• Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica

Surprisingly, many of these cultures consume a
much higher carb diet than the Western world,
confirming once again that despite all the bad
press, carbs don’t necessarily make you fat.

Of course, there are many other lifestyle factors at
play besides carbohydrate intake if you want to live
to be 100.

When all was said and done, there were 9 things
EACH culture in the “blue zones” had in common.
• Large diversity of plant based diet.
• No processed foods
• Strong belief in God (with a strong sense of purpose)
• Social connectivity with family and friends
• Plenty of walking
• Practice forgiveness daily
• Little stress (which is manage well)
• Sleep 8 hours nightly
• No smoking

"Would not go anywhere else. I once flew to Melbourne from the Gold Coast just to see Alfio, no one else I have seen has ever been able to fix my pain. He knows his stuff."

"Alfio gave me a treatment to unlock my frozen shoulder, only one muscle treatment gave me 100% movement back. Now I do recommend him all the time."

"I hurt my back a couple of years ago, lifting a heavy piece of stone. I was bent over sideways and in a LOT of pain! After seeing a two chiropractors and two remedial therapists I was referred to Alfio by an experienced chiropractor. What an amazing experience! Alfio was able to reduce my pain level by 50% after each session. After only four visits I was almost pain free and able to resume work as normal. Of course, I went for several more sessions until I was completely recovered. This guy is a GENIUS and I constantly recommend him to others."
