Everyone hits bumps in the road. Some can feel like black holes that are impossible to escape and have swallowed everything. But each loss should be viewed as a lesson that can teach us how to improve ourselves and progress to a better future. Sometimes, we just need to be given a little direction and the right tools to learn from those hard lessons. I wrote Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus only after experiencing the tremendous heartbreak of a failed relationship and then feeling the immense joy of finding the true love of my life. My Soul Mate, Bonnie. I was able to learn from my past mistakes, dispel my past assumptions and create a better understanding of the love I could give and the love I wanted to receive in all my relationships. Most people know me because of my books on love and relationships. But I realized a long time ago that our relationships were dependent upon more than strong connections, good communication skills and a better understanding of our differences. They were also influenced by our health. If you aren’t healthy in your mind and body, it’s hard to be healthy outside your mind and body. So if you feel sick, tired, exhausted, stressed and generally unhappy, this will cause your relationships to feel the same way. Great communication skills is essential but on a physical level we all need the right nutrition to help our bodies feel happiness, love, focus, peace, energy, motivation and passion. I have dedicated the last 30 years to finding healthy solutions to the most common ailments affecting our happiness in life. I continue to look for the right balance of proper nutrition, useful exercise and natural supplements that will help you feel better in your mind, your body and your relationships.

“Experience is your best teacher,” John explains, “Many people reach a level of education and think they know everything there is to know. Many of my colleagues and friends have degrees from prestigious schools but they spend years working alone. I encourage them to get out of their offices and labs and get into the lives of real people to gain a better understanding of how their work can make our world a better place. I don’t really hear too much about my education anymore because my theories have proven true for millions of people around the world.”

John also began counseling couples in 1982. His background as a monk and teacher, allowed him to incorporate spiritual counseling in his practice. John found parallels to meditation in men’s daily lives. “When men come home from work, they often reduce stress staring at the TV or reading, just as cavemen once stared into fires. They are thinking of their problems in silence,” John explains. “If men can’t solve their problem, they usually forget about it before they ask for advice. Eastern religions glorify such a blank mind. Nirvana is oblivion where you forget everything.”
