Two years ago, I raced the South Beach triathlon in Miami.
Afterwards, I met up with a local bodyworker and gourmet whole food chef who had offered to come work on me. I expected the usual ho-hum “rubdown” with some kind of coconut-beef jerky-kale snack, but was instead treated to not only some of the most intense and effective bodywork I've experienced (including the use of a walker – you know – like old people or surgical recovery patients use), but also a cornucopia of everything from bone broth doughnuts to organic local beef tacos to fermented vegetable salads and beyond – along with some very stimulating intellectual discussion on iridology, fascia, detoxification, magnesium, water and much more.
So who was this guy? His name is John Schott, of Schott Health. Establishing himself as one of South Florida’s most groundbreaking and pioneering leaders in the health field, John Schott set himself aside from the pack with the opening of his restaurant and retail space, Lifefood Gourmet, South Florida's first gourmet whole food restaurant. His wellness services have touched the lives of high profile celebrities, athletes, and executives. John leads workshops and detox retreats in Florida, New York City, and South America. He has attained certifications such as Iridologist from NY Center for Iridology based on Bernard Jensen Iridology, Lifefood Culinary Chef & Phoenix Fastician from Jubb’s Longevity Live Food Culinary Chef from NYC.
John has studied closely with the top pioneering authors & practitioners for the last 12 years in the alternative health field. His knowledge of and experience with detoxification, nutritional cleansing, bodywork, wellness & lifestyle coaching has led him to create a unique model evolving from a decade of apprenticeship, self-study, and hands-on application with hundreds of clients. He has in-depth insights into areas of health pertained to nutritional timing (or “ time conscious” eating), trigger point & fascia bodywork, nutritional cleansing, near infrared therapy, and other alternative healing modalities & longevity strategies. John has created health and performance programs for some of the world's highest performance professionals.
