THE NEW SCIENCE OF PHYSICAL HEALTH. RADIO SHOW

  • Publisher: MY CHILD’S HEALTHY LIFE
  • Total Episodes: 90

Welcome to THE NEW SCIENCE OF PHYSICAL HEALTH. In 2009 Professor Steven N Blair published a peer-reviewed research in the British Sports Medicine Journal, which changed the direction of physical health outcomes and so began the dawn of a new era I call: THE NEW SCIENCE OF PHYSICAL HEALTH. His little known paper was called: THE BIGGEST PUBLIC HEALTH PROBLEM OF THE 21ST CENTURY. Seven years later the esteemed American Heart Association published a follow up research paper, recommending that Doctors learn a new health biometric for their patients. This biometric has come to be recognised as the number one influencer over your PERSONAL PHYSICAL HEALTH STATUS. The title, MY CHILD’S HEALTHY LIFE is in recognition of my son and his grandfather. (My father). On November 1st, 1989 I received a phone call from my mother where she said these three words; “Love, Dad’s died”. My father was just 46 years old and had died suddenly from a massive heart attack. I then went to work for the National Heart Foundation of Australia. Over the past two decades, besides being a health and physical education teacher; I have interviewed over 100 PhDs in medicine, cardiology, childhood physical activity research, cognitive neuroscience, exercise physiology, exercise science, public health, sensor engineering, open-heart surgery, pediatrics, endocrinology and more. I quickly recognized that deep and complex research does not reach the world very quickly. After a solid decade of understanding the work of Professor Blair and others who also contributed to this field of health and medical research, I wanted to be able to tell their story in simple lessons. I wanted there to be an EXPERTS ROADMAP. Right now there is so much of these Professors’ work that remains almost a SECRET to the general public. It is time to get it out there for anyone to listen to for free. I hope that these lessons can be for my son who is not yet a teenager. So that he at least has an EXPERT ROADMAP called THE NEW SCIENCE OF PHYSICAL HEALTH. I never want him to be in the same position as his grandfather whom he never got to meet. I can’t wait for you to dive into the NEW SCIENCE OF PHYSICAL HEALTH.

After completing his GCSEs in 2004, he decided to pursue further Islamic education in the Al karam higher Islamic Studies department, thereby completing the 3 year Diploma in Islamic Sciences & Classical Arabic Language in 2007.

A further year was then spent in the American University of Cairo (AUC) completing another Diploma in Legal Translation. However, his thirst for knowledge was not yet quenched. After returning to British soil in 2012, Shaykh Rizwan joined the Cambridge Muslim College where he spent another year completing yet another Diploma, this time graduating with honours in the college’s Contextual Islamic Studies & Leadership Diploma under the tutelage of Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad.
