Deepak Chopra gained notoriety after his appearance on ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’ in 1993, and as Michael Jackson’s most-trusted spiritual advisor.
Now at 68 years old, Chopra is teaming up with one of Hollywood’s rising stars in health and nutrition, Kimberly Snyder, to transform the way Americans define beauty and wealth.
“Health is the number one trend in the world. And, if you track well-being not just physical, emotional and spiritual, but also what we call social well-being or community well-being, it directly correlates with financial well-being. So, if people ignore their well-being, they are going to have a financial crisis too,” Chopra tells FOXBusiness.com.
Snyder, author of “The Beauty Detox” series and nutritionist to celebrities like Reese Witherspoon, Drew Barrymore, and Kerry Washington, says the idea that inspired the collaboration was redefining beauty from the inside-out.
“Instead of focusing on one specific thing, eating for weight or putting on makeup for the external, our six pillars cover a whole lifestyle that works internally to have you feel and look your most beautiful,” Snyder tells FOXBusiness.com
In their new book, “Radical Beauty,” they outline tips, tools, and guidelines to help people discover the internal issues that are causing their health ailments and lack of fulfillment. The six key pillars of “Radical Beauty” are internal and external nourishment, peak beauty sleep, primal beauty, beautiful movement, and spiritual beauty.
“Your skin actually reflects the quality of your life and what most people are doing is almost like polishing the flower instead of nourishing the root,” adds Chopra.
Part of that nourishment is going back to what’s natural; and that means tossing out the processed foods and chemical-laden cosmetics.
“When I say natural, I mean taking things from your kitchen and moving them over to the bathroom,” says Snyder. “There are things that cost very little but are actually a lot more effective that don’t include those chemicals that get in your system.”
Snyder says it’s not just Hollywood adopting this lifestyle, it’s catching on in the business community as well.
“Studies show that more and more billionaires and successful people are mediating because they are able to settle their mind and make better business decisions and perform at a higher level.”
Chopra adds that taking care of yourself is not only important for your own success, but directly impacts the world around you as well.
“I’m talking about hospital admissions, traffic accidents, and violence, they are all connected to it,” he says. “It’s the most important thing that we can do for our kids and for the future of the world.”
