The Health Switch

Are you tired of watching years go by as other people get fit and healthy, and you just get older…more unhealthy…more tired?

Discover the one thing that is
more important to your health than
diet, exercise, or medical advice

We spend hours and hours watching, tracking, counting, and feeling guilty about what we eat. But, how much time do we spend on the most powerful factor of all – our thoughts?

Reaching your health and fitness goals requires action. And actions are powered by, (or sabotaged by), our thoughts. No matter how good your doctor’s advice, no matter how perfect your meal plan, no matter how well researched your fitness regimen, none of them will work if you don’t start them and stick to them.

  • Thought: I don’t have the energy to exercise regularly.
  • Thought: There is too much information and contradiction. I don’t know where to start.
  • Thought: It’s selfish of me to spend so much time on myself – I have a family.
  • Thought: I’ve never been able to stick with it long term before, why will this time be different?
  • Thought: It’s too difficult to find the time to cook in a whole new way.

The biggest obstacles to reaching your health goals and feeling great are thought obstacles, – or, as I like to call them with my patients, Thought Traps.

If you’re not reaching your health goals, it is not the diet, the food, or the exercises that’s holding you back. The real obstacles are practically invisible to almost all of us. The real reason we don’t reach our health goals is because of what we think about the healthy behaviors that we need to choose in order to reach our health goals.

One simple unexamined thought can keep you
trapped in a fat, tired or sick body. Or it can simply
keep you from reaching your potential and feeling great.

We all have down moods and negative thoughts and limiting beliefs from time to time. These thoughts are powerful and they keep us from acting. They can be so automatic that we don’t even realize we’ve been sabotaged.

Notice that the reasons for failing, or not starting, are not about the food or exercise itself. (You don’t hear people say, I did not reach my goal because I ate too much broccoli and not enough cauliflower.)

The good news is that there are simple, proven
techniques you can do in just a few minutes a day
that will propel you past these ‘thought obstacles’ and
keep you sailing on toward your goal.

Most of the time our thoughts are automatic. They follow patterns that were engrained in us when we were young – patterns we did not necessarily choose – patterns that may not really be very helpful, or very logical.

In just a few minutes per day, you can learn to:

  • Learn to identify the hidden, automatic thoughts that sabotage your success
  • Diagnose which of the 9 Thought Traps are the ones causing you the most problems
  • Master the 7-step process for developing “Mind Power” – the power of thought to propel you to action.

This do-it-yourself method will break down the ‘though obstacles’ you are not even aware you have. You will learn to quickly recognize them and employ the simple principles of the Health Switch to boost your personal ‘Mind Power’

“…it changes how I feel within minutes.”

I used to experience a lot of mood swings. After Dan taught me the Health Switch, I got control over my bad moods. I now use it whenever I start to get upset, and it changes how I feel within minutes. My life is so much better, and my family is relieved!

– Kim B., Cleveland, OH

“I had this amazing realization…”

When I began working with Dan, I was feeling totally hopeless about my situation. He showed me how to access my Mind Power, and I had this amazing realization. I had more control than I ever imagined!

– Jennifer W., La Grange, IL


I come from a family with a long history of serious depression, chronic suffering, and self-destructive health choices.

Luckily, I had an epiphany that would change my life forever.

Hi, This is Dan Lippmann.
In my late twenties, on top of my predisposition to down moods and negativity, I was also suffering from chronic pain from a joint disorder. As I saw myself sliding down into a hole of poor physical health and emotional health, I had an epiphany that changed my whole life. I suddenly realized that…

Our lives and health depend on learning to
take control of our own thoughts and moods.

I realized then that if I let my automatic thoughts and unexamined beliefs run my life, they’d rob me of my power, motivation, and ability to have the health and joy I wanted in my life. I realized that I could train myself to have the mental power to change my outcomes.

This set me on a journey to understand human emotions, moods, and the thought traps that hold us back. I went to school, became a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and began to search for an answer.

This journey, and thousands of hours counseling people suffering because they were letting unexamined, negative, and limiting thoughts determine their results convinced me that:

You can change how you feel, and literally ‘turn off’
the negative moods and beliefs that hold you back.

…and it doesn’t involve drugs or years of talk therapy.

I also realized that to reach more people with this message, I’d have to make it simple enough to learn and do on your own, at home, in just a few minutes a day.

Since some of the biggest issues my patients face are health, weight, diet, and fitness related, I decided to create some easy-to-use tools to help them continue on their own after our work together.

This was so popular that I’ve now finally found the time to turn the tools into something anyone can use to change their health destiny and feel better daily.

What is the Health Switch? How does it work?

The highly influential modern psychotherapist Alfred Adler stated,

“I am convinced that a person’s behavior springs from his ideas.”

Most of us are probably familiar with the concept of thoughts becoming actions. But, what we may not be aware of are the automatic thoughts we have every second of every day that are constantly creating emotion and causing, or preventing, action.

Our feelings are closely followed by thoughts that interpret the feeling and determine our course of action. We can’t always control the initial feeling, but we can become aware of the thought, and thus influence the action that follows.

For example, can you relate to this?

Look at the difference one thought makes…

Imagine you are driving down the freeway, obeying all the rules and driving safely. Suddenly a car swerves in front of you, missing your front bumper by inches, giving you a surge of adrenaline.What you “feel” is the adrenaline. But the resulting ‘mood’ depends on your instant, ‘automatic’ thought, and on the thoughts you continue to have after that.

You might think: “What a jerk! He could have killed me! Why are people so stupid? Where are the police when you need them? Why does this always happen to me? This is a bad day. I need some french fries.”

On the other hand, you might think: “Wow! That was close! I got out of that without a scratch. Thank goodness! It must my lucky day! I’m really lucky to be alive and feel even more committed to taking care of myself.”

There is no difference in what actually happened in both cases. There is no difference in the surge of adrenaline. The difference is the automatic thoughts and the mood they leave you in.

And, that mood is usually what determines the actions you choose next.

Research has shown that most bad feelings come from illogical thoughts.

The feelings come from the way you think about the events, rather than the events themselves, and then our choices and actions are based on those feelings and thoughts.

This is why the Health Switch Method can work “miracles” in such a short time. The Health Switch is based on Cognitive Behavior Therapy techniques. Since the 1960s, when CBT was first developed, it has been rigorously researched. This research has revealed that CBT works extremely well, because it is based on a breakthrough finding:

• Thoughts “cause” feelings

• Illogical thoughts cause negative feelings

But the key word here is “behavior.” Cognitive Behavior Therapy helps you change your thinking so you can change the way you feel, which leads to lifelong changes in your behavior.

Unlike many other self-help methods, this tool doesn’t just temporarily reduce the intensity of negative feelings that are keeping you from acting; it actually changes the upsetting thoughts and beliefs that create negative feelings. In fact, 90% of my clients experience relief from emotional upset, regardless of the complexity of their problem, after applying this tool to their specific problem just one time.

The Health Switch Method enables you to quickly zero in on what is holding you back or upsetting you.

The Health Switch Method systematically guides you to create customized, powerful, “negative-thought-busting” phrases to counteract your specific upsetting thoughts and beliefs.

For less than the cost of:
– A personal trainer for a day…
– A few days’ meals…

The advantage of Health Switch is that of all the things you pay for to get healthy – doctor visits, personal trainers, special organic foods – the Health Switch is the only one that you only have to pay for once. It is the only one that, once you invest in it, will continue to work for you and help you reach your health goals for ever.

The Fitness Switch Program

We know that many of you are already committed to your health and fitness. So, that is why we created a brand new module to go along with the Health Switch.

You get:

  • Two more audio demonstrations with PDF transcripts of real live, volunteer clients working with me to find their fitness-related ‘thought traps’ and then to create new, empowering beliefs around their fitness goals.
  • SIX sets of ‘Mind Power’ flash cards for Fitness. Based on my experience, I’ve identified many of the most common limiting beliefs and written some samples of better, empowering thoughts. You can use these directly, or draw inspiration from them to create your own. Blank flash card template is included.
  • Sample worksheets, pre-filled-out on fitness-related topics. This gives you a leg up on using the blank worksheets that are also included.


Focus Session:
No Energy To Exercise

Do you ever feel like you just don’t have enough energy left in the day to exercise? Do you wonder how people get up so early and find the energy to hit the gym? Listen (or read) along as I talk to a real live client with similar concerns. There’s nothing quite like hearing a real person, with a real situation walk through the process and come out the other side feeling energized and motivated.


Focus Session:
Embarrassed to Exercise

If you are like most people, it is hard to feel like a beginner. Your first yoga class, or your first trip to the gym in years can make you feel really self conscious:

  • “Do I look dumb?”
  • “Everyone is more fit than I am.”
  • “I don’t know what I’m doing.”
  • “I don’t want anyone to seem me lift weights.”

Listen (or read) along as I walk a real person with similar concerns through the Fitness Switch process. Together we uncover the thought traps and replace them with empowering, logical thoughts.

Listen (or read) along as I walk someone with similar challenges through the simple steps of the Weight Switch Program. By the time they finish, the client has renewed will power, and practical, logical strategies to use right away.
