It was destined that Dr. Blake Livingood (yes, his real name), a Doctor of Natural Medicine and Doctor of Chiropractic, helping hundreds of thousands of people live well and healthy. He is the founder of drlivingood.com, a natural health website site and wellness and fitness services, Livingood Daily. He is also the author of two Amazon number-one best-selling books, “Livingood Daily” and “Make Food Simple.”
Dr. Livingood’s mission to help people become healthy human beings, stop taking prescription medications, build up one’s immune system, and focus on health care and not sick care, began 15 years ago while studying for his doctorate. His mom called to let Dr. Livingood know his dad’s health was failing. His father, who was only 51 years old at the time, was experiencing so much pain and inflammation that he lost his hearing, vision, and heart function. After two years of going through the health system (which Dr. Livingood refers to as the “sick care system”), his dad was on 15 medications, had multiple surgeries, and had racked up $200,000 in medical debt. He wasn’t getting any better; in fact, he was getting worse and could no longer do the things he loved or work.
Dr. Livingood Comes to Life
Dr. Livingood asked his father to live with him and put all his scientific training and research into developing real health solutions. He taught his dad how to shop for food and exercise each day while he detoxed him and worked on his foundation. Within 90 days his dad was off all the prescription drugs he was taking and back to living his life, biking, fishing, and, best of all, was able to attend Dr. Livingood’s wedding.
Dr. Livingood took many of the health solutions he developed for his dad and converted them into a blueprint for others to help them focus on their health and make lifestyle changes. He put his belief into practice and decided not to approach healthcare like the majority of doctors who cover up disease and ignore the real problem, which is a lifestyle. According to Dr. Livingood, lifestyle is responsible for 98% of all diseases. Achieving real health involves changing your focus from sick care to health care, fixing your food, fixing your frame, fixing your fitness, and fixing your filters by detoxing your gut.
Life Change: Your Health Is Your Responsibility
Dr. Livingood’s approach helps people gain clarity on what it takes to build health, break free from drugs, get rid of the obstacles preventing real health, and get healthy to lose weight rather than lose weight to get healthy. No more sick care, no more toxic drugs, no more side effects, no more just doing what the insurance companies will pay for, no more food addiction, no more low energy, and no more suffering. He advocates doing what you instinctively know what to do first before spending the money on expensive drugs and doctors.
