Ep012: Brian Costello - Intro to “Intuitive Health and Performance”

Ep012: Brian Costello - Intro to “Intuitive Health and Performance”

July 17, 2018

Host Brian Costello (@bcostello____) shares his views and theories on our modern day approach to health and fitness, and discusses his own new outlook on these topics using an unique method he's calling "Intuitive Health and Performance".  Although the theory is in it's infancy, Brian discusses how we can solve a lot of our current health issues by a more conscious observance of our nature, our instincts, and our biological design - basically the opposite approach of modern health care.

Topics

- Success and failure patterns in the fitness industry

- Effect of universal motion (macrocosm) on movement of the human body, and in turn the motion of our internal systems down to the molecular level (microcosm).

- Understanding homeostatic balance and the stress of maintaining it/returning to it

- Acknowledging the body's role in balancing our internal systems with our external stimuli

- Comparing human health behaviors to animal instincts and the glaring differences (Man's Law vs Nature's Law)

- Challenging the logic of current medical science and education compared to ancient wisdom of the human being

- Observing health and beauty as a byproduct of structural function and biomechanical efficiency
