Author Biography

On April 22, 2012, Steve Dimon suffered an Ischemic stroke. Paralyzed from head to toe on his left side, he spent nearly a month in two different hospitals and three months in outpatient therapy in Los Angeles.

At the time of the stroke Steve Dimon was 63 years old and 100 pounds overweight. He suffered from the perfect storm of metabolic syndrome, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, morbid obesity and diet-induced inflammation.

He had come to L.A. to be an actor and model in 1986 and had succeeded. Then over the years he transitioned into producing live shows, special events, concerts, festivals, film & TV in Hollywood. But all that success, stress and Hollywood glamour caught up with him and he paid for it with a stroke one spring afternoon.

Being paralyzed from head to toe on his left side, including face disfigurement and slurred speech, he had to learn how to walk and talk again, eat his food, swallow, tie his shoes, go to the bathroom; he even had to relearn how to wipe his butt!

Now nearly 70 years old, 100 pounds lighter, he has a 32" waist, 6.5% body fat, weighs 175 pounds, and has literally turned back the clock and reversed all of his metabolic syndrome symptoms that caused his stroke through diet, nutrition, exercise & supplementation. His doctors use two words about his recovery: MIRACULOUS and AMAZING.

Health, Wellness and Longevity by Steve Dimon reflects a wealth of research. So much more than an 'Eat This While Avoiding That' premise, Health, Wellness and Longevity goes through every possible topic including where food comes from, GMOs, macronutrients, water, sugar, grains, types of dietary fat, detoxing, how to eat for health, micronutrients, techniques for healing, and so much more. The appendices include doctor testimonials to prove the efficacy of Dimon’s methods. His expertise comes from the self-learning he undertook after suffering a stroke. Using these techniques he was able to heal himself and he wishes to spread the word and coach others to do the same.

You will be surprised to learn of the healthiness of chicken skin and dark meat. The brain contains a high percentage of fat, as do certain other areas of the body, so to be healthy it is not recommended to adopt a low fat diet. Something else you may not realize is that pharmaceutical companies, lobbyists, and government subsidized farming have a powerful effect on your health. Profit is the reason your doctor receives free drug samples to hand out to patients — thereby getting them dependent. It’s also the reason the government has paid farmers to grow, or even not to grow, certain crops. Be wise and learn the cultural factors that affect our diets.

Are eggs good or bad? What really causes cancer? Are GMOs and irradiated foods really safe? Steve Dimon will help you to evaluate all this and more in Health, Wellness and Longevity in a user friendly and understandable way. I am always looking for ways to improve my health so I enjoyed listening to this audio book. It will provide you with many facts and methods to improve your own health.
