Our Path

The path to Radiant Health is about health and healing becoming a principal focus in our day-to-day living, it is not about waiting for things to break down before attention and effort is made.  It is about gently encouraging, balancing, nourishing, and supporting the body-mind-spirit as a whole and not about influencing a singular change, pathway, symptom, or organ.

Radiant Health is about a focus towards attainment towards being the best you, you can be.

Over the last couple hundred years the practice of medicine has become sidetracked, focusing almost exclusively on the alleviation of symptoms at the expense of prevention of disease and imbalances, and efforts to maximize our health and vitality.  This is by no means intended as an indictment of just western medicine; much of the “alternative” community is just as guilty of this.

Exploring the path to Radiant Health is a means to find the core issue, to see what is causing the imbalance or ailment, not about masking it with a panacea, but investigating the “why” of it.  When we have an idea of the “why” we can then search for a solution towards balancing and nurturing the body.

What the symbol of the Enso and the lotus represents.

The symbolism we use in our logo, an Enso and a lotus, complement each other in the endless re-birth of our learning and the perfection of the imperfection of all things.  We are all inter-connected in the cycle of life.  We have our own cycle of closing as the lotus flower does each night and opening as the lotus flower does each morning.

The lotus rises through muddy water to bloom beautifully above the surface.

The muddy waters represent the obstacles and everyday challenges we each face in life.  The lotus symbolizes the amazing potential of each human to rise above these challenges on their journey towards Radiant Health.

This gives us the opportunity to begin each day anew, allowing for a fresh start on our continued path towards our own Radiant Health.

The Enso encircling the lotus suggests movement and development, and the idea that nothing in life is perfect, and there is always room for growth and improvement.  It also represents unity, the cycle of life, and the interconnectedness of all things as well as a symbol of the harmony and balance between opposites. 

The Enso reminds us to stop reaching for perfection and to let go of the notion that there is a generic path that ends at some specific place, point or time.  When you feel that you have come to some completed destination on your path, it is a reminder to start again right at the point where you are now and to embrace and relish your exclusive experiences on life’s voyage.


We are not here as a sales tool, nor a promoter of any particular diet or health regime, philosophy or school other than what works and helps you on your very own path to Radiant Health.


Mark J. Kaylor, M.H. C.N., Ph.D.

About Our Founder

Mark’s life took an abrupt and significant turn while pursuing his doctoral studies in sociology. A part-time job in a health food store began a series of life discoveries and career changes, awakening in him a passion for holistic health and healing.

From this point on he began exploring in depth, as he does to this day, a diverse array of healing practices and traditions from around the world. From a Cherokee reservation to the Amazon rainforest to mountains in China, his studies have lead him to develop a truly holistic practice and approach to health and healing incorporating many traditions, styles, and modalities.

Arising out of his work over 40 years ago with the hiv/aids community he came to recognize the importance and essential need to approach chronic dis-orders from an authentic holistic perspective. Mark believes that many of us have come to settle for a level of health that is substandard rather than the radiant health that is our birthright. He works to encourage, nourish and bring forth an individual’s innate healing gifts (abilities) and to encourage individuals towards discovering their own path to radiant health.

One of the steps on a path to Radiant Health is service. His websites, his lectures over the past 40 years, the newsletter and all future efforts are part of his personal steps of service. Mark’s search for truth has lead him to pursue the path of radiant health, viewing health and healing as a life-long process rather than as an end goal. He has worked and consulted in the Natural Foods Industry for close to 40 years as a leading holistic health educator, formulator, radio show host/guest, and author. You can catch him frequently on health talk radio.
