The Peloton, The Lone Wolf, and The Road.

 The Peloton.  An interesting phenomenon some say.  I disagree.  A phenomenon can't be proven.  But the principle of the peloton, is a physical Law.  In Cycling, the Peloton is legendary.  The principle of the peloton is incredible - a group can accomplish more than an individual AND expend less energy in the process.  

From Wikipedia:  The peloton (from French, literally meaning little ball or platoon and also related to the English word pellet), fieldbunch or pack is the large main group of riders in a road bicycle race. Riders in a group save energy by riding close (drafting or slipstreaming) near (particularly behind) other riders. The reduction in drag is dramatic; in the middle of a well-developed group it can be as much as 40%.[1]  

Many of us in life, health, and business will try to do it on our own.  Much like the 'Lone Wolf.'

From Wikipedia:  A lone wolf is a wolf that lives independently rather than with others as a member of a pack. The term is also used in reference to people who exhibit characteristics of introversion or a strong preference for independence.

In the animal kingdom, lone wolves are typically older wolves driven from the pack, perhaps by an alpha male, or young adults in search of new territory. Rather than openly challenge the dominance of the pack leaders, many young wolves between the ages of 1 and 4 years leave their family to search for a pack of their own. Some wolves will simply remain lone wolves; as such, these lone wolves may be stronger, more aggressive and far more dangerous than the average wolf that is a member of a pack. However, lone wolves have difficulty hunting, as wolves' favorite prey, large ungulates, are nearly impossible for a single wolf to bring down alone. Instead, lone wolves will generally hunt smaller animals and scavenge carrion. Occasionally, a lone wolf will encounter another lone wolf of the opposite sex, and the two may start a new pack [1]. 

As a mission minded, vision driven, forward thinker, the power of a group is invaluable.  So I ask my readers, with what pack are you running?  Or are you even part of a pack?  Are you in the peloton, accomplishing much through expending less energy?  Or are you the Lone Wolf?  Running alone. You see, inevitably a Lone Wolf will tire, become weary, and weak.  Vulnerable over time.  

What does this have to do with health Doctor Ox?  Everything.  Enter healthcare in America.  The medical model applies the Peloton principle - to a degree.  An organized delivery system.  Interdependent with other specialties.  Driven by research and 'facts' to create recurrent income streams via consistent consumption of pharmaceuticals.   Supported by policy and government whose leaders are paid dividends based on how many pharmaceuticals are consumed.  Incredibly powerful.  Many assume unstoppable!  

However, the road on which the Peloton travels must be clean.  Must be pure.  Must be foundationally sound and strong.  Imagine a road filled with potholes, bumps, and cracks.  Not good for the peloton.  This would equal pain, suffering, and distress for many in the peloton, maybe all.  But the Lone Wolf can see every pothole, every bump, and every crack.  He can navigate cleanly, avoid danger, and protect himself.  He survives and the peloton dies in this example.  So many gravitate to be the lone wolf, as it's the safest, with the least resistance.  In their life, in their health, and in their business. There is little risk.  And there is little reward. 

Now imagine a road built for the peloton.  Paved smooth.  Not one crack.  Perfect temperature.  Amazing grip.  Now who is stronger, more effective, more influential?  The peloton or the lone wolf?  The peloton of course.  But with out the road built for the peloton, the peloton crumbles.  

In Maximized Living, we have constructed a road built for the peloton.  Our road is built on foundations, on laws, on principles - ESSENTIALS.  Not good ideas, not drugs and chemicals - just truth.  The road is the delivery system, and the peloton is our elite team of committed Doctors, students, staff, patients, and readers.  And the peloton is growing and replicating at light speed.  Why?  The need.  You see the medical model health care system has a road built on lies and misinformation.  A road full of potholes and speed bumps.  So fractured and weak of a road that not only the peloton is dismantling (the doctors and nurses) but collateral damage is  occurring as the peloton crashes into the crowd.  Innocent people are suffering and dying as this road deteriorates before our eyes.  Cancer, heart disease, diabetes, childhood illness, Autism, depression, Alzheimer's, and chronic degenerative disease.  Yet instead of fixing the road, the model continues to tread on.  It just builds bigger, badder, tougher, cycles.  Cycles that can 'seemingly' handle the deteriorating road.  However, it's an illusion to believe this can sustain itself.  It cannot.  

So I ask you who you are?  Are you the Lone Wolf?  Are you in the Peloton on the disintegrating road?  Or are you part of the movement changing health policy though building an indestructible road, top of the line cycles, and the biggest baddest peloton in history?  Maximized Living has paved the road.  Our cycles are fast. And our peloton is growing.  It can't be stopped. It won't be stopped until real health care reform has occurred.  Join us.  But only if you are prepared for a battle, actually a war.  A war over the current crimes against humanity behind the veil called "healthcare" in North America.  Let's roll.
