What we have learned...we practice & we teach to others



Welcome to... The Optimal Life™          

Despite all the counselors, self-help gurus and health information, all too many people continue to lead lives full of yearning and, sometimes, searing desperation longing for personal health, healthy relationships and a sense of well-being in all areas of their lives.

"The Optimal Life, Empowering Health Healing & Longevity" is a reader-friendly reference guide to health and healing—short, concise, practical information based upon a philosophy of living that is in alignment with nature’s wisdom and the Universal Principles that govern our experience of life, as well as health. This is your “Owner’s Manual” for not only taking care of your body, but also creating a richer experience of life. The Optimal Life™ is the primer on wellness that you never received on your way out of the womb...a combination of a “how to” self-help guide to create well-being and the “why” behind the “how to.” 

​My intention is to provide you with an initial frame of reference, a starting point, for reclaiming your health, the cornerstone of human potential. The material presented avoids going too deeply into any one topic; my hope is to get you in the ballpark and onto first base, a safe place from which you can continue to build your health destiny. The downside to this approach is that the treatment of any one topic may in some cases lack enough scientific accuracy to satisfy those of a more rigorous academic and scientific nature.

So what does it take to create The Optimal Life™?  It begins with a belief that things can be better than they are right now...and that you have the innate power to make things better, no matter what it takes. So what does it require? It takes an open mind, a genuine desire to change, a personal commitment to improve the quality of your life, a willingness to accept total responsibility for your current state of health, the ability to take action, and the discipline to stick with it . . . even in the face of adversity. 

All the information in the world will not heal you from your current mental, emotional or physical illness, keep you healthy, or prevent you from developing some disease. It takes action. The road to optimal health and healing is an experiential and uniquely personal journey of self-discovery & self-acceptance. 

The Optimal Life™ was written in response to a huge gap that exists in the general understanding of how to create health and a sense of well-being in all areas of your life...mental, emotional, spiritual and physical. It is a tool designed specifically for you. Use it in good health!

“Dr. Bizal’s book reveals how different expressions of energy are interconnected to shape our being. In today’s life - dominated by reductionism and lack of mind-body-spirit-emotion education - Steve’s book offers a great chance to pro-actively improve our own greatest asset: health. “The Optimal Life” is an invaluable tool to make us aware of our potential and ease the amazing journey of living.”
