HealthCoach Prevention Program is a shift in the treatment and prevention of chronic disease syndromes such as Type II Diabetes, Cardiovascular Disease, Obesity and Neurodegenerative Diseases – Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease.

HealthCoach uses data from anthropological studies of modern day hunter-gatherer populations, Blue Zones regions from around the world with high concentrations of centenarians, and peer reviewed studies to develop prevention protocols for chronic disease syndromes and for cognitive loss.

HealthCoach emphasizes a return to the more primitive pre-agriculture diet, physical activity plan and biphasic slow wave sleep patterns that made our ancient genome thrive.

HealthCoach suggests that the current rise in Chronic Disease Syndromes and Cognitive Loss is connected directly to the stress caused by consuming our modern Western American diet, lack of sustained physical activity and poor quality NREM slow wave sleep patterns that our genome was designed for.

HealthCoach addresses the connections between diet and “diseases of civilization” (evolutionary discordance) by modifying both diet, physical activity and sleep patterns to match the complexity of our genomic selves.

HealthCoach understands nature does not miscalculate, it designed humankind and built our bodies to forage, hunt, eat plants, to move daily and sleep regularly in order to sustain a healthy life. Mankind was not built to go to a grocery store in a car and consume processed foods, and synthetic chemicals, that does not sustain life!


Gerald J. Joseph

I have spent my adult life studying public health science, anthropological models of aging, chronic disease prevention & management, the scientific study behind the mechanisms of movement, food science, our bodies built in sleep controls, the microbiome, organic whole food product development and the science of well-being – happiness.

Born in Texas, raised in Florida, Japan, Guatemala and in both Northern & Southern California. I attended San Diego State University, B.S. Health Science [Public Health], Grand Canyon University, M.Ed., [Education], and hold a current K12 Health Education Teacher Certificate [Florida Department of Education]. I currently work as a Health Coach and Guide - Chronic Disease Education, Prevention and Management.

My recommendations and protocols are supported by guidelines established by the CDC, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, AHA, American Heart Association, ADA, American Diabetic Association, ACSM, The American College of Sports Medicine and supported by NCBI, The National Center for Biomedical Information – which advances science – and health by providing access to biomedical and genomic information.

Gerald began his career as a Health Coach for Fitness by Design, LLC, located within the Rancho Santa Fe Medical Center. Gerald worked with competitive athletes, women’s health issues, obese children, and adults suffering from chronic disease syndromes (E.G., type II diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, chronic fatigue, and Alzheimer’s disease) using a multi-modality treatment approach – diet, physical activity, a sleep improvement plan and strategies to increase happiness.

“[My surgeon] thought my results were outstanding, much better than expected due to the complicated surgical procedure. All I can tell you is that since I started working with Gerald, I have dropped weight, have more energy, and seem to be healing like a son of a gun. Oh, and I’m sleeping better, too. Can’t really ask for much more.”
