John speaks Chinese fluently and also lectures throughout China. During one of these trips, John learned about a longevity village where people often live to be over one hundred years old. What’s more, they remain vibrant and active, rarely suffering from any of the diseases and disabilities that plague Western society.
John and Jane took their nine-year-old son Joshua and journeyed to this remote region of China and interviewed the centenarians and the Chinese health-seekers who travel there to be healed. They spent nearly two years researching the question: How do the centenarians in China's Longevity Village manage to avoid the myriad of diseases from which millions of Americans are suffering?
When John began applying these principals to his own life, the results were astonishing. In six months, he lost 30 pounds, his total cholesterol dropped from 211 to 118, and his blood pressure fell 25 points. He was cured of high cholesterol, high blood pressure, acid reflux, insomnia, and his aches and pains disappeared. Dr. Day’s patients and colleagues have experienced similar success on this program.
John and Jane began writing a pamphlet to share their findings with John's patients to help them naturally reverse many of the ailments that bring them to his office. Their work has now become a book, bought by HarperCollins, and it is expected to be published in 2015.
