For most people, being on a diet - any diet - is not sustainable. In contrast, the Spectrum approach is all about freedom and choice. Foods are neither good nor bad, but some are more healthful for you than others. You have a spectrum of choices.
If you like it, you'll do it. So, do whatever activity you enjoy. Well-balanced fitness for participants of the Ornish Spectrum includes stamina, strength, and flexibility.
love and support spectrum
Giving and receiving love and support make you healthier and happier - our ability to connect with ourselves and others, is at the root of what makes us sick and what makes us well, what causes sadness and what brings happiness, what makes us suffer and what leads to healing.
stress management spectrum
When stress is chronic, physical reactions can lead to disease. Learning to cope with & manage stress empowers you to react in healthier ways. In other words, the circumstances may not change, but how you relate & react to stress can.
