At the age of 23, Dane Johnson got diagnosed with Crohn’s disease and found himself living a double life – one where everything was perfect, a life where he was the cool, healthy guy he always wanted to be, and one where the sickness was so present that there was no way he could deny it. He spent years battling Crohn’s disease and trying to at the same time sustain his hip image of a model. Then one day he got the message from his doctors he didn’t want to hear – that he would have to give up his career and lean into the fact that this was his life now; A life filled with drugs, pain, and humiliation.

But Dane refused to accept the future the doctors laid out for him and decided he’d had enough pain. That day, he decided to get in charge of his own life and started the journey that wouldn’t just transform his own life, but also the lives of many others. Today Dane is practicing Natural Medicine and has made it his life’s mission to help people all over the world in similar situations regain their health. His story is beyond amazing and what he has to share is just extraordinary. So get ready to empower yourself and finally get in control of your own life.

Dane’s Retruth

I want to retruth the idea of age and how it relates to health. There’s this idea of health where people think that “if I can run this far or  if I have this type of body, then I am healthy, and I need to do it then, because the clock is ticking.” But if you have a drinking problem or eating fast food and will die at 60 due complications from your lifestyle, and you’re now 22, who is younger – you or someone who is 30 and will live until he’s 90?

If you lay out your life and look at it from how much percentage you’ve already lived, that person is actually younger than you. So this idea of that “I’m too old or it’s too late” – it’s wrong. Age is relative to how long your life is, and that makes age a personal journey!
If you want to live a long and healthy life and expand that lifespan, invest now! Start taking care of yourself, now! The clock is ticking. So what I want to make different of truth then, and what I want to ask you listening, is – How old are you?
