“Health is not incessantly worrying about how healthy you are.”

The Challenge

Eighty thousand chemicals have been dumped into our environment since World War 2. Forty percent of Americans get less than 5 hours of sleep. Over two thirds of our population is obese or overweight and over two thirds of those who are normal weight are over-fat. Each year our children’s minds are poisoned with thousands upon thousands of ads for sugar sweetened beverages and quick, dead, processed food.

We race all day attached to screens constantly checking for the next emergency, adapting and addicted to the endless stream of to-dos and cultural pressure to get work done. Where does it end? How can you regain your health, your vitality, and your passion for the things that matter?

The Solution

Costa Rica hosts more than 5% of the world’s biodiversity even though its landmass only takes up 0.03% of the planet’s surface. Twenty five percent of Costa Rica’s land is dedicated to conservation. Clean air, pure water, and local organic food are all easily accessible. Costa Rican life holds still to watch a hummingbird zip from flower to flower. Millions of tourists come to Costa Rica each year to escape, but what do they take back?

FMCR provides a taste of this escape, but also a top of the mountain type experience where you can learn how to build health from the ground up and take back your life wherever you are. You don’t even have to come to Costa Rica to get started, although we highly recommend it.

“Dr. Ben House will change your life. You likely don’t realize it at this point given you’re just reading a testimonial but if you decide to work with him, it will be the best decision you ever make.
Having been told by the conventional medical model that my symptoms were “not concerning for a 24 year old” and “really not worth investigating further”, I decided to take my health into my own hands and contact Dr. House. Not only is he one of the top functional medicine practitioners in the US, Dr. House is also an incredibly profound teacher. His ability to provide encouragement and insight is uncanny.
After working with Dr. House for a few months, I can honestly say that I’m feeling better than ever before. I didn’t even realize it was possible to feel this good.
However, the most important takeaway from this experience is not just my renewed health, it’s also the diverse skill sets which Dr. House passed along. As a fellow coach, it has been a blessing to work with someone as knowledgeable and understanding as Dr. House.

I have a world of respect for Dr. Ben House.  The S&C House, the Functional Medicine House, the Zen House….all of them!  Since I met Ben years ago, my life continues to evolve and improve year over year.  From the time, many years ago, he spent an hour coaching me on double unders to most recently fixing my long time fatigue/strength issues (via Func Med), Ben has had a huge impact on me and my family.  At age 42, I’m feeling stronger, healthier and more focused than I have in decades.  As a result, I’m passing on all the learned and realized benefits to my family, friends and my own clients.  Pura Vida Dr. Ben House! Sincere gratitude for everything you have done for me and for others!

What is Functional Medicine?

Functional medicine reflects a systems biology approach to health care: a comprehensive analysis of the manner in which all components of the human biological system interact functionally with the environment over time.

Assessment and treatment first address the patient’s core clinical imbalances, fundamental physiological processes, environmental inputs, and genetic predispositions, rather than heading straight for the diagnosis. Improving balance and functionality in these basic processes then creates momentum toward true health.

I have been racking my brain on how to stay in contact with those that I care about more frequently as well as provide information and more importantly stories that may drive you to either start or continue a positive habit in an environment that may constantly try to break it down or put it off. If one person chooses to take action because of this email it is worth it.
