Most people would say they should be healthier. The sad truth is that we’ve never been sicker – despite more doctors, more hospitals, more drugs, greater technological advances in diagnosis and ‘treatment’ (after the fact = sick care), man has never been sicker than we are today. The deterioration of modern man’s health has gotten to the point where recently the CDC announced that for the first time in the history of man on earth, children are not expected to live as long as their parents – did you get that? That’s never happened before. Ever. And it’s the result of toxic and deficient lifestyles in the form of processed packaged nutrient-poor foods filled with health-robbing chemicals and devoid of life-giving nutrients, combined with sedentary and stressful lifestyles.

The good news is science has shown beyond a shadow of doubt what is required to be healthy – the doctors who founded and created Bonfire have not only vetted this research on your behalf to outline in great detail how to successfully adopt healthier lifestyle habits, but they’ve been teaching it to literally tens of thousands of patient for over 58 years of combined clinical practice. It’s now available to you as the Bonfire Program and it’s FREE. The Bonfire Program is a 90 Day Health Transformation Program that will gently and effectively guide you through adopting healthier habits into your lifestyle within the domains of eating (fuel), moving (air) and thinking (spark).  [click here]

Get the Body You Want … Without Fad Diets or Gimmicks. 

Perhaps the single most identifiable characteristic of our unhealthy modern culture is the fact that the vast majority of people today, both young and old, are overweight or outright obese. Being overweight is the hallmark feature of nearly all chronic diseases – heart disease, cancer, diabetes, autoimmune/inflammatory disease, and the like. Being overweight isn’t about ‘being overweight’ (or out of shape, or ‘fat’, or whatever), it’s about being unhealthy. There is no other way to put it – when someone is overweight, they’re unhealthy. Period. Do you want to ‘gain health’ (i.e. lose weight)? Then sign up for the Bonfire Program today and start losing weight and getting healthier tomorrow.

Are you facing a health challenge?

Allergies? Skin Problems? Autoimmune Condition?

You know, it wasn’t that long ago that when someone died of cancer, it was unusual – it was a ‘big deal’. Today, it’s commonplace – everyone knows someone who’s has or has died from cancer (every other weekend is a Breast Cancer Walk). Similarly, between 1940 to 1980, an overweight kid was somewhat of a rarity; or, for those of you old fossils like Dr. Paul, remember when there was that one kid at school who ‘had asthma’? Today, registering a child for school always involves a list of current medications, allergies, health conditions, etc. (not to mention the 15% of boys today taking Ritalin or some other ADD/ADHD medication). How peanut butter and jelly used to be an American tradition; now, it’s an act of bio-terrorism at ‘NUT FREE’ schools. What’s most fascinating is that no one is asking … WHY?

Learn the keys to getting the body, health and life you’ve always wanted and deserved – for FREE.

Why are so many people, children and adults alike, off the rails with their health? It’s quite simple really – it’s our lifestyles; as modern humans, we’re so off base from what and how we’re supposed to eat, move and think that the current health epidemics (obesity, allergies, diabetes, autoimmune, dementia/neuro-degenerative diseases, etc.) are to be expected. Think about it – if you fed your dog a steady diet of donuts, pizza, soda pop, and Twizzlers, and never took him for walks, what do think his health would be like? Think he or she would have skin problems, digestive issues, develop cancer?  Of course our dogs do suffer because we feed them processed packaged crappy food made from corn, soy and junk vegetable oils in the form of ‘kibble’ … and so do we suffer – because we’re living unhealthy lifestyles as well. But there is an answer, a better way – a correct path to take in our lifestyle choices. The Bonfire Program is built upon evidence-based research proven to promote health and reduce, and in many cases actually reverse, many health conditions affecting modern man today. [click here]

Change Your Health

Do you know your lifestyle is probably creating widespread CHRONIC INFLAMMATION throughout your body? Inflammation is the root cause of many, if not ALL health challenges facing people today.

What causes INFLAMMATION? The scientific research is very clear on this: modern life is killing us through pro-inflammatory lifestyle choices – the way we eat, the way we [don't] move, and our mangled thought life (stress, lack of sleep, lack of gratitude and patience).

Here are two things YOU MUST DO right away to stop deadly chronic inflammation:

1. Change your lifestyle CLICK HERE TO START TODAY

2. Start taking ENOUGH high quality natural triglyceride omega-3 fish oil to mitigate the effects of your PRO-INFLAMMATORY LIFESTYLE CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE

Are you STRESSED? Who isn’t, right? Being stressed ALL THE TIME, and NOT GETTING ENOUGH SLEEP are major threats to your health. Change your lifestyle starting TODAY - Change Your Lifestyle and Change Your Health – Today … for FREE! CLICK HERE TO START TODAY

Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? There is a way out, a better way … through healthier lifestyle choices. Let us come beside you and guide you, teach you, show you … how to adopt healthier habits in your life. The Bonfire Program has worked for thousands and thousands of people … just like you! Our motto is ‘We make it easier to get healthier’. Notice we don’t say ‘easy’, but easier; it’s simple, but not necessarily easy to add healthy habits to your life, to make change, even positive change. But we’ve figured out how to help you do it … in a confidence-building step-by-step process. The Program is FREE – just sign up and start doing (yes, reading won’t cut it – you have to DO).

What have you got to lose? It won’t cost you anything and you’re friends already think you’re weird, so … why not?

AIR  ~  Movement of the Day:
Day 100 of the 100 Day Challenge! YOU DID IT. 100 days of Tabata. Moving and disciplining your body for your health and a good cause! Hopefully you’re able to make it to Hampton today to celebrate with us and do your 100th Tabata in the sunshine with all your fellow fundraisers! If not, tune into the site later today for pictures and video of our Movement of the Day!

FUEL  ~  Dish of the Day:
Grilled Chicken with Honeydew Salsa. A perfectly balanced new summer recipe to try! Isn’t it funny how the most seemingly uncomplimentary ingredients taste the best together?! [Click here for additional Recipes]

 

SPARK  ~  Thought of the Day:
Quote of the Day: Whatever the struggle, continue the climb. It may be only one step to the summit. ~ 
Diane Westlake

Essential Element: Our Belief Systems are learned. They predict what we think, what we say, what we do and what we feel. [Click here to read Spark Insight: The Value of Struggle].

Journal: We simply never know what tomorrow will hold. Maybe it’s the breakthrough we’ve been dreaming of … or the opportunity we’ve waited years for! Choosing to believe that your life is moving towards the life you’ve always wanted will shape and color the decisions you make today. What are you believing for your life? Write in your journal today three of your greatest dreams  – one for a month from now – one for a year from now – and one for five years from now. Describe each one in detail – what does it look like? Smell like? Feel like? It’s up to you to believe big things for that extraordinary life of yours… [Click here for additional Journal exercises]

IGNITE YOUR DAY

AIR  ~  Movement of the Day:
Day 99 of the 100 Day Challenge!  Jump Overs. A great full body exercise today to test your coordination, balance and strength. Pick an appropriate height and don’t forget to save a TON of energy for tomorrow’s big 100th day! [Click here for additional Workouts]

FUEL  ~  Dish of the Day:
Healthy Haddock.  After moving to New England, Dr. Paul noticed that many Haddock recipes were made with bread crumbs. Wanting to keep dinners gluten free, he came up with this healthy alternative. Buy and make extra for lunch! [Click here for additional Recipes]

 

SPARK  ~  Thought of the Day:
Quote of the Day: The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit ~ Proverbs 18:21

 Essential Element: Who do you spend your time with and what behaviors do you promote?  Where you spend your time and with whom can be two of the most influential forces in your change effort’s success – or failure.  Choose them well. [Click here to read Spark Insight: Influence & Control].

Journal: Where is your heart with the people you spend your time with? Are you seeking to change them by steadily inflicting your will? Or do you accept who they are, letting them know where you stand but loving them anyway? So much change in our lives comes from the impact of others. Remember you are an ‘other’ in someone else’s life – and the things you say/do matter! Although seeds are small when they are planted, fruit eventually comes.  Whose life do you have an impact on right now? Jot their names in your journal – and consider the impact you’d like to be remembered for having… [Click here for additional Journal exercises]

IGNITE YOUR DAY

by MJ

AIR  ~  Movement of the Day:
Day 98 of the 100 Day Challenge!  Your final friday of the 100 Day Challenge means Pass Under Tabatas!  You will likely have to be creative in finding a spot to do these (you can always ‘pretend’ there’s a rope above you!), but once you do, your coordination, balance and leg strength will thank you! [Click here for additional Workouts]

FUEL  ~  Dish of the Day:
Bonfire Fiesta Salad. A fantastic, colorful and convenient recipe to get your necessary greens!  [Click here for additional Recipes]

 

SPARK  ~  Thought of the Day:
Quote of the Day:  So often we try to alter circumstances to suit ourselves, instead of letting them alter us. ~ Maribel

Essential Element: In order to get different outcomes, you must adopt new behaviors.  Now here’s the rub:  new behaviors can be awkward and difficult.  You simply must practice new (better) behaviors until they become easier. [Click here to read Spark Insight: Influence & Control].

Journal: What new behavior have you attempted to adopt – maybe a few times now – and just can’t seem to make it a part of your day? Maybe it’s cutting out sugar… Maybe it’s going to bed earlier…  Maybe it’s writing your spouse a note each day to let them know you appreciate them. Whatever it is that you want to make a habit, see it for the powerful thing it is, rather than just for the effort it requires; for the shaping and changing of you it will do, rather than the irksomeness of trying yet again to make it a part of your life. You are the decider of the action – but the action itself possesses unlimited ability to shape your life. In your journal – jot down three positive, life-shaping effects this one habit holds. Then do the thing… [Click here for additional Journal exercises]

AIR  ~  Movement of the Day:
Day 97 of the 100 Day Challenge! Barbell Farmer’s Carry. Weight up your barbells and walk across the yard (or gym)! Sounds easy… but you’ll be feeling this one by the end of your Tabata! Finish strong gang… 3 more days of the Challenge! [Click here for additional Workouts]

FUEL  ~  Dish of the Day:
Chili Omelet. Looking for something to do with that leftover Chili? Add it to your breakfast! Some extra flavor to those protein rich eggs will start your day off right! [Click here for additional Recipes]

 

SPARK  ~  Thought of the Day:
Quote of the Day: I began to have an idea of my life, not as the slow shaping of achievement to fit my preconceived purposes, but as the gradual discovery and growth of  purpose which I did not know. ~ Joannna Field

Essential Element: Our lives can be reduced to a series of choices and the results of those choices.  Every choice, every day, we get to shape our lives.  Create an increased awareness of your Innate Values and choose Belief Systems that are in alignment with them – and watch your behaviors follow suit. [Click here to read Spark Insight: Influence & Control].

Journal: Discovery of our life’s purpose is a process – one that we must be open and alert to in order to receive. Observing the very fabric of our days – the conversations we engage in, the connections we make, the ideas we see propagated-  and taking note of what ignites a spark in our hearts and minds – is worth every minute of observation. Let yourself slow long enough today, at some point during your day, to actively observe and take in the life around you. Be present … and see what your heart comes up with … [Click here for additional Journal exercises]

AIR  ~  Movement of the Day:
Day 96 of the 100 Day Challenge!  Dr. Franson’s getting ready for our BIG BEACH EVENT on Sunday with some Broad Jumps in the sand, how about you? Any exercise in the sand is just a little bit tougher, so get down to the shore and challenge yourself!  [Click here for additional Workouts]

FUEL  ~  Dish of the Day:
Brussel Sprouts with Bacon. Brussel Sprouts tend to get a bad wrap! But if you cook/bake them just right… they’ll be a new favorite in your household! [Click here for additional Recipes]

 

SPARK  ~  Thought of the Day:
Quote of the Day:  Ideas are powerful things, requiring not a studious contemplation but an action, even if it is only an inner action. ~ Midge Dector

Essential Element: Successful change agents have taught us some powerful best practices for adopting new behaviors. Ultimately, you have the power to create incredible positive, lasting changes in your health and life with the right skills and know-how.  [Click here to read Spark Insight: Influence & Control].

Journal:  Your mind has the power to decide. Whether that situation you are in right now is rotten or beautiful, blessing-filled or treacherous, there is power in lifting your thoughts past the physical plane (observable, immediate) to a higher plane of thought. What current situation is challenging your happiness right now? How is it doing so? What will you dwell on today instead of letting those situational facts take over? [Click here for additional Journal exercises]

IGNITE YOUR DAY

by MJ

AIR  ~  Movement of the Day:
Day 95 of the 100 Day Challenge! Overhead Squat with PVC. Core, balance, muscle engagement… this movement has it all! And starting with PVC ensures your form is solid before adding the extra challenge of a weighted bar.  [Click here for additional Workouts]

FUEL  ~  Dish of the Day:
Bonfire Chocolate Mousse! A fun surprise with fun ingredients! Get out your food processor and some avocados (that’s right, avocados) and enjoy! [Click here for additional Recipes]

 

SPARK  ~  Thought of the Day:
Quote of the Day: Inspirations never go in for long engagements; they demand immediate marriage to action. ~ Brendan Francis

Essential Element: Once we recognize that a paradigm that has dictated every thought, response, choice, and behavior pattern in our lives is learned, we can also recognize that it can be re-learned. [Click here to read Spark Insight: Influence & Control].

Journal:  When’s the last time you were inspired? Really inspired? Hearing an Olympic hero’s epic story? Observing a Crossfit athlete complete a workout in record time?  Listening to a song or speaker with a bold and counter cultural message? Don’t let that inspiration die. Jot it down in your journal – and next to it some thoughts on why it was so impactful for your life specifically. Remind yourself what is possible … [Click here for additional Journal exercises]

FUEL  ~  Dish of the Day:
Breakfast Quinoa Bowl. That’s right folks, Quinoa’s not just for dinner anymore! Add some cold almond milk and your favorite fruit and nuts and your day will be off to a nutritious, satisfying start! [Click here for additional Recipes]

 

SPARK  ~  Thought of the Day:
Quote of the Day:  Who can separate his faith from his actions, or his belief from his occupations? ~ Kahlil Gibran

Essential Element:  A vital behavior for gaining greater influence in your life is the ability to choose a better belief system. [Click here to read Spark Insight: Influence & Control].

Journal:  Does your believe  system through in your workplace? I’m not talking about spiritual belief – I’m talking about life beliefs. What you stand for, what you promote, what you practice and why. Do your co-workers see a life that demonstrates purpose? Pick one of your co-workers or colleagues and in your journal, and recollect a meaningful conversation you’ve had. Then jot down the name of another whom you’d like to really share your life with. Think outside your work day box… [Click here for additional Journal exercises]

AIR  ~  Movement of the Day:
Day 93 of the 100 Day Challenge!  Close Grip Bench Press. A new grip means a whole new exercise! Be mindful as you weight your bar anytime you try something new. Don’t worry… you can always add more, but start smart! [Click here for additional Workouts]

FUEL  ~  Dish of the Day:
Greens and Bacon. A little bacon goes a long way when it’s used as a flavor component versus a major part of the dish. This breakfast, made with kale, spinach, chard, and broccoli, and which can easily be varied depending on what you have on hand, is extraordinarily high in phytonutrients, antioxidants and other micronutrients essential for health. [Click here for additional Recipes]

 

SPARK  ~  Thought of the Day:
Quote of the Day: The only measure of what you believe is what you do. If you want to know what people believe … don’t ask them… just observe what they do. ~ Ashley Montagu

Essential Element: Our Belief Systems are learned. They predict what we think, what we say, what we do and what we feel. [Click here to read Spark Insight: Influence & Control].

Journal: What convictions or beliefs are you acting on right now? If someone was to ask of you life – ‘What does he/she clearly stand for?’ – would they be able to tell ? Jot down in your journal the top three things you are seeking to live – and live loud, right now. What are you doing with your one wild and precious life? [Click here for additional Journal exercises]
