Fitness is the essence of a man. Fitness is the ability of a person to do his normal everyday tasks with full alertness and vigor without worrying about fatigue afterward and with extra energy in reserve
Konstantinos “Gus” Deligiannidis shares his story from health problem to solution provider for good health
It was during his time in Athens while earning his Bachelor’s degree that he came across the seeds of his book, A Unique Documentary of Health Through Nutrition, which represents the epitome of his efforts on this topic, written in collaboration with Dr. James L. Wilson D.C., N.D., Ph.D., nutritionist and Dr. Apostolos (Paul) Apostolos Kiritsakis M.SC., Ph.D., world renown olive oil specialist. Back in those years there was no internet, no cell phones, no drugs, and no jails filled with drug addicts. Back in those years in the beautiful city of Athens, Greece, people were getting together many times for good fellowship and entertainment and would talk about different topics of interest.
It was in one of those get togethers that Ted, a friend of Gus’ and an animal husbandry major at the University in Athens, Greece, said: “You can become immune to many diseases when you eat dairy-based foods. At that time, there was probably not much talk about the lack of the mineral calcium, whose presence in our body prevents over 140 diseases.
That statement – about Calcium – stayed with Gus’ subconscious even today. In 2001 it became obvious that Gus needed supplementation of this mineral, through food and supplements, in his body.
Gus continued to educate himself about minerals and vitamins. He went on to an easy to follow diet based on the Greek Mediterranean diet. Calcium, Vitamin C, Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids, Magnesium, Phosphorus, and Potassium all helped him tremendously in his quest for better health, basically without medication. The results were truly extraordinary.
Out of all the minerals and vitamins, we need to stress Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids. Even a doctor’s wife, at a recent live Interactive seminar that Gus led, did not know what this powerful vitamin does when it contains Bioflavonoids. It revitalizes the absorption part of our innate intelligence function so that we absorb the minerals and vitamins from the foods we eat or the supplements we take.
By expressing good faith, Gus then went on and tried to see how he could get some help from exercise. Nobody has one or two hours to exercise. So he did whatever he could. Ten, Twenty or Thirty minutes of light exercise every day. Again, the results were phenomenal. Exercise, along with a simple and meaningful diet (no guru diets) and lots of water, helped him lose over 55 pounds, weight that he has kept off even today!
Alongside all the above actions, and as a consequence, Gus was also able to reduce his anxiety and depression, a hereditary disorder in his family, from which he suffered from as long as he could remember.
This is the background that inspired him to write the book “A Unique Documentary of Health through Nutrition.”
