Thank you for looking for an alternate way to view your health and take control with professional guidance, education and nurturing.

Your quality of life and destiny of health will rely on your integration of sound evidenced based lifestyle principles.  These truths have been hidden or shrouded in deliberate confusion - until now.  Chiropractors have embraced the natural way to health for over a century.  Now, science is validating us and adding missing links to a revolution in health care.


Be very clear, your personal "health" culture has been created by the actions and choices you make on a daily, monthly, and yearly basis.


We have a "toxic-lifestyle" crisis of escalating chronic degenerative disease in every age group, these diseases are lifestyle altering with deadly outcomes; something has to change!

Medicine is a business FOR PROFIT in exchange for the diagnosis and treatment of disease. This is the current healthcare model we all use.

Confoundingly, 80-90% OF ALL the diseases the current health care system focuses on are preventable! Prevention of disease and the promotion of a positive healthy lifestyle is rarely paid for by any health care system in the western world.

The sciences of prevention have been ignored by all of medicine for more than 50 years as our brightest minds are dumbfounded on how to integrate this "conflict of interest".  Dr. Dean Ornish states " the truth is: medical practice is more motivated to change by economic incentives than what's best for the patient".


A new culture begins with a philosophy - a truth to live by.

Long, long ago there were Four Positive Noble Truths.   Foundational, simple and profound these truths cut to the essence of today's health problems. They provide an ideal template to rediscover your own personal culture of health.

The logic of truth equates to them being devoid of religious alignment; they are pure, simple (stark) and self-evident if you study and apply them.

In our experience, they are the shortest path to the other shore where health abounds.  But - you have to know how to swim and practice.


When you know the risk, you can devise a strategy to reduce it.

Each of us has the potential to stop disease, live a long and happy life with the STARK application of Lifestyle Medicine.

With a nurturing lifestyle, a workable environment for a long healthy happy life will follow.

We teach Lifestyle Medicine via the International Academy of Prevention, Performance and Longevity (IAPPL) and Stark Health takes a selected number of clients (YOU) each year to help refine our teaching models and to make a statement of change to standard practice training one practitioner at a time.

When you become a client, you may be in a clinical teaching situation with an observer - you will always have the right to privacy when requested.

Clients travel to our Centre from around the world to do their evaluations. After carefully analyzing over 60 laboratory tests, 15 pages of personal history and the results of our 90-minute physical examination we design a custom program for each client and "install" that information in our follow-up 90-minute session to get you on your way to a higher performance in every area.  Overseas clients are virtually "coached" to achieve identified goals and we are available 24/7 to answer questions when they occur. We review the hard data gathered monthly and quarterly with repeat tests to objectively document results.  This gives us the ability to adjust and modify the lifestyle, so we know what is working and why.

Through Stark Health Centre you might expect to achieve lower body weight, increased muscle mass, lower blood pressure, better mental awareness and most importantly massive reductions in the risk of degenerative diseases (diabetes, heart disease, cancer and autoimmune disorders).

We receive referrals from other specialists and practitioners who have seen our methods and outcomes and understand it takes time and a comprehensive program to achieve life-changing results. Most practices do not have the training to do this for more than one or two conditions.  Our model fits almost all health challenges, as does our experience.

The "International Academy of Prevention, Performance and Longevity" (IAPPL) uses our format to teach healthcare providers from all disciplines how to "change over" into Lifestyle Medicine and be true "health care providers and mentors!"
