Health & Happiness Optimization: The Uncivilized Vitality Story

Uncivilized Vitality ™ is a program of Health & Happiness Optimization in which lifestyle changes are made, mimicking certain aspects of pre-civilized hunter-gatherers, allowing us to achieve the ancient state of Eudiamonia: a life that is serene, joyful and enthusiastic. The basic premise is simple: many aspects of civilization have been terrible for our health and well-being. Diseases of civilization are on the rise. (Obesity, anxiety, depression, cancers, heart attack, strokes, diabetes, etc.) Being too civilized is killing us! Our program shows you how becoming more Uncivilized can improve your way of life.

Dr. Jon D. Morey is a Chiropractic Physician, MovNat Master Trainer, 5th Degree Blackbelt, and Director of Medical Anatomy at the University of Michigan-Flint. His Uncivilized approach to Health & Happiness has helped thousands of patients, family, and friends to address head-on the insidious effects of Nature Deficit Disorder and rediscover a world they didn't even know they were missing!

Browse our shop to view some of the pieces of Uncivilized Technology that we use in both the field and in our daily life.
