Amazon Book Reviews

“Great book, gained more from this book than any other book that I have ever read.”

“This is one of the few books on health and healing that is all encompassing and simple for someone looking to understand how to take control of their health by providing a complete platform of wellness. Worth the Read!”

Why?

10 years & 10,000 hours

I never set out to become an author. I’m a teacher at heart, and teachers teach. We teach what we believe, in our heart-of-hearts, will benefit others. This work evolved organically over many years and many hours of personal, clinical and academic pursuits with an insatiable appetite to understand the core principles for optimizing health, healing and human potential.  On this journey of self discovery I arrived at Four Realizations, that is the cornerstone for all optimizing health & healing, and reaching your highest human potential. Enjoy!

The Wholistic Health Model

“Dr. Bizal’s book reveals how different expressions of energy are interconnected to shape our being. In today’s life – dominated by reductionism and lack of mind-body-spirit-emotion education – Steve’s book offers a great chance to pro-actively improve our own greatest asset: health. ‘The Optimal Life’ is an invaluable tool to make us aware of our potential and ease the amazing journey of living.”

The Four Realizations

#1. The body heals itself.

Every cell in your body has its own built-in “intelligence”. It is the wisdom of nature, this innate intelligence, and the life force energy within all living things that is the true healer.

From the moment of conception and through the entire embryological development, every cell in your body is encoded with all the information and instructions – DNA – it will ever need to perform its specialized function, replicate itself and repair itself without your conscious intervention.  It is your responsibility to support the natural healing power of the body by not interfering (through unhealthy lifestyle habits) with this innate ability. You will come to understand the that “cure” for most diseases, and especially all the chronic degenerative diseases, is the same as the “prevention”. 

#2. The game of health has rules.

These rules are the non-physical as well as physical forces that govern our experience of life as well as health. What are these forces and how do they work?

These are not rules that have been created or espoused by the medical, pharmaceutical, scientific or religious communities. These rules are the Universal Principles that governor our experience of life, health and the healing process. These Universal Principles include both spiritual laws (non-physical forces) and laws of nature (physical forces), and apply at all time, in every situation, without exception. 

#3. We are more than just our bodies.

We are more than just the cells, tissues and organ systems that make up our physical experience of life, our state of health, or illness and disease.

There is also a spiritual, mental and emotional aspect (highly sophisticated, complex and fully-integrated) to our existence. And because of this dynamic, any approach to improve the quality of your life or health that does not acknowledge and embrace this mind-body-spirit-emotion relationship, is inherently a self-limiting paradigm doomed to fail at the onset.

#4. We are each 100% responsible.

Everything that we experience in life, including our health (or illness and disease), we are contributing to the creation of in some way. A hard pill for some to swallow…

It’s a whole lot easier to blame others for what is not working in your life, and you can continuing down that path if you wish, but your ignorance or arrogance will not preclude you from experiencing the consequences of the truth about your belief system, thoughts, feelings, words and actions.

What's in it for You?

Because of my inherent belief that if I truly understood the “why” that was at the core of my struggles – that missing piece of the puzzle –  I could then find the answers to my questions and the solutions to my problems. My journey has led me down many paths. I have spent ½ of my adult life in corporate America, the other ½ as a health care provider. I have researched, explored, experimented, observed and implemented what I have learned. It has taken on many forms and has looked like many things at different times in my life, always learning from my own experiences, struggles and challenges, which I detail in the Introduction of The Optimal Life, Empowering Health Healing & Longevity. Today, my life revolves around two core passions: first, consistently applying what I have learned to optimize my own human potential; and second, helping others realize their full potential to achieve the same. Maybe, just maybe, you may find some take-away value as well. I hope you will check it out.

Everything you experience in your life you are contributing to the creation of in some way, all of it…the good, the bad and the ugly…and figuring this out for yourself is what the mythical Hero’s journey is all about. Stop being the victim. Stop blaming others. Stop blaming circumstance & situation. Ultimately it doesn’t matter what anyone else does, it only matters what you do.”

Dear Steve, the most exciting aspect about my successful 100+ lb. weight loss is that after 36 years on the face of this earth you convinced me that I was important above all other things. It is unbelievable how the system turns your mind around …

I realize now that all the money I spent on commercial weight loss programs was actually a waste. These programs do not address themselves to real life issues, but rather the fads and gimmicks better known as the “easy way”–there is no easy way, and once YOU are the priority in your life it doesn’t have to be easy, it just has to be done.

After 18 months of your personal coaching, and a 100-pound weight loss, I feel the need to say thank you for your caring. My personal and professional life will now mature more fully and reach higher potential as a result of having learned to control my physical destiny.My hope is that you reach out to other people as you have me and provide them with the same personal interest in helping them help themselves to ‘look good & feel great.

Dear Dr. Bizal, I never told you this but my son was not doing well with his health and I shared ‘The Optimal Life’ with him.  He read it from front to back in no time and carries it around with him, referencing comments to others.  I think that is so neat and it has helped him so much …
He was living here in CA and after reading the book for a few months decided he should go back to TX.  He did and he is so happy. Dr. Bizal, there is nothing so great as having a son who is finally content and is creating happiness for himself.  For that I owe you a world of gratitude.  If you wrote it for none other than him…. you’ve contributed to life in a magnificent way.  Fact is….he has decided to go back to school to become a psychologist and I told him he should reach out to you to be his mentor. Thank you!

Dear Dr. Bizal, I want to take a moment and acknowledge all that you have done for me! I’ve been through a variety of sports programs and training from as far back as I can remember and none of them even comes close to the benefits that your program has had on my health and well-being…
Your program and guidance has been a blessing!  I’ve gotten in better shape than I have ever been, sleep better than I ever have and have more energy than most people I know! In fact, being 32 years old I outpace what I used to do when I was in my late teens and early 20’s and run circles around my friends (who coincidentally are really starting to show the signs of aging)! Your juicing regime and fitness tips have made a huge difference in me and even a few people around me that you have not met! You have absolutely “empowered my doctor within” and I thank you for that! Thanks again!
