The Five to Thrive Concept

At the core, cancer prevention is the act of proactively reducing one’s risk of developing the illness. But we take our philosophy one step further. To us, this journey is about rediscovering vitality no matter what we encounter. The Five to Thrive Plan will make sure you’re the healthiest you can be if ever you do develop cancer. It may seem counterintuitive, maybe even radical, to describe a person with cancer as healthy, but the most effective risk reduction plan also prepares your body for the potential of battle. We need to create a foundation for success against cancer. The Five to Thrive Plan helps you look at cancer prevention differently. We show you—based on scientific evidence—that you have the power to change the course of cancer development, and in doing so, to transform your health. The scientific concept of epigenetics (the science of examining factors that influence the behavior of our genes) continues to confirm that we can change the way our genes behave. We can, quite literally, transform our internal landscape, and our plan shows you how to do that.

We begin by identifying the body’s five key pathways that have the most influence on whether we are healthy or become sick. These pathways are:

 1. The immune system

 2. Inflammation

 3. Hormonal balance

 4. Insulin resistance

 5. Digestion and detoxification

The Five to Thrive Plan helps you enhance the immune system, reduce inflammation, sustain hormonal balance, prevent and reduce insulin resistance, and optimize digestion and detoxification.

These five key pathways in the body can be positively influenced by focusing on five core strategies:

 1. Enhance your spirit

 2. Let’s move

 3. Enrich your diet

 4. Utilize dietary supplements

 5. Create rejuvenation

As you can see from the illustration on the opposite page, within each of the five core strategies, there are five critical action steps. These actions steps have been prioritized based on their influence on the body’s five key pathways. If an action positively impacts the five pathways, it becomes a priority within the Five to Thrive Plan. The connection between actions and impact must be validated by the scientific research in order to make it part of the plan. When you focus on the five critical action steps within each of these core strategies, you are positively affecting the function and health of all five pathways. As a result, you will significantly reduce your risk of developing cancer and live a more vibrantly healthy and joyful life.
