My name is Dr. Josef Arnould. For 35 years, I have enjoyed the privilege of serving as a chiropractic physician in Western Massachusetts. From my first day in practice, I have always integrated traditional chiropractic care with two other essential elements of natural health—strength training and nutrition. Seven days a week in the Strength for Life® Health & Fitness Center, you will find me teaching people how to perform strength exercises with precision and how to select and eat exquisitely nutritious foods
“Whether you are 40, 65, or 90, in this online community learning center you will discover new and exciting ways to achieve the freedom of good health.”
Why, in our busy clinic, do I pursue these two additional and highly demanding professional roles instead of being content to practice chiropractic exclusively?
My conscience, my education, my clinical and personal experiences, and my direct observations of human behavior all lead me to believe this: How well we eat and how well we exercise are the most important factors for our long-term health and active well-being.
I believe each of us is our own primary health provider. Although professional health care providers, including myself, always try to deliver effective treatments to those who seek our services, the foundation of personal health is self-care. Therefore, the greatest service I can offer to each patient in our clinic, to you, and to all other members of our online community is to share everything I learn about self-care.
I began studying, practicing, and thinking deeply about exercise and nutrition more than 50 years ago, as a teenage athlete in Iowa. Even then, I knew that one day I would be teaching to others what I was learning about exercise and nutrition.
In 2005, I released a comprehensive textbook on exercise entitled Stronger After 40: Strength Training as Healthcare for Women and Men in the 21st Century. Thirteen years later, I still receive comments from clients, who say things such as, “Your book made me think about exercise in ways I had never thought of before.” Or, to quote Dr. Tito Gambarini, a retired heart surgeon, who is 96 and our oldest exercise client: “The way you teach exercise is a blessing. If I did not exercise here, I would have had to go into assisted living a long time ago. But I love getting my energy here.”
Now, I offer American Diet Revolution! The Strength for Life® Guide to the Foods We Must and Must Not Eat to Be Lean and Healthy in the 21st Century. Based on the most honest and up-to-date nutritional research of the past two decades, this work is a high-powered guide to purchasing, preparing, and eating deliciously nutritious foods in our far-too-hectic contemporary culture. It is also an urgent call for you to question fairly and critically the truthfulness of all dietary advice you read, see, and hear.
Good health is essential for your personal freedom. When you eat well and exercise intelligently, you feel increasingly energetic and capable of performing the most important physical tasks of your life. When you log in to StrengthForLife.com regularly, you are joining other forward-thinking adults in an interactive online community where we learn and share information essential to both our personal health and our collective well-being. May we all know each other and ourselves better as we take this journey together.
Here’s to your health,
Josef Arnould. D.C.
