About the Book

The Founder of the proven Foundation Training program takes his teaching to the next phase, offering detailed understanding of our capacity to heal using the body’s built in systems, introducing a perpetual inner core of wellness and adaptability.

Dr. Eric Goodman’s innovative approach to self-healing—Foundation Training—has helped celebrities, athletes, first responders, and regular folks around the world feel and look better, and kept them active and fit. The core of Foundation Training is a unique form of biomechanics—a series of postures, poses, and movements designed to teach the body’s individual muscles to act within strong, flexible chains of muscles, shifting the burden of support away from sensitive joints.

Foundations of Health builds on this core program, going deep into the principles and practices to help us understand how to maintain a healthy body even when the mechanics eventually break down. Our bodies are built to heal themselves— without surgeries and prescriptive medications. The protocols focus on the endogenous cannabinoid stimulators—neurotransmitters that bind directly to cannabinoid receptors throughout the Vertebrate nervous systems—including the Central, Enteric and Peripheral nervous system.

Dr. Goodman explains the science behind the endogenous cannabinoid system and how it can be stimulated in natural and healthy ways. He recommends foods, herbs, and supplements likely to ease pain, lower stress, and boost mental and physical function. He addresses the notable medicinal benefits of CBD, THC, and the many Terpenes associated with Cannabis’s reputation for healing, and teaches how to be a smart consumer of Cannabinoids. He also shares techniques that will help guide and maintain the state of balance the body needs to function optimally with stability and harmony.

Foundations of Health will forever change the way we think of our bodies and our physical healing.
