Executive Director, Founder
Jay Newman is passionate about doing good in the world and feels it’s essential in order to feel like a whole, fulfilled human being. He also believes it’s essential for a lot more wealthy people to put resources in the direction of global well-being if humanity is going to continue to thrive and evolve.
A renegade on the road less traveled, he left college early in order to explore the nature of being a human being. He later became interested in making money in order to help him teach about holistic health. Before long, he had the head of the entrepreneurial department at Harvard University on his Board of Advisors and had the same attorney and accountant as Steven Jobs of Apple. Ross Perot persuaded him to leave high tech and follow his passion by getting into the holistic health field.
Jay is a member of the Board of Advisors of the National Health Federation, the oldest NGO dedicated to health-freedom advocacy. He is the CEO of Invision International Health Solutions, Inc.
Jay has been interviewed on Good Morning America, NBC TV News and perhaps a hundred live radio shows as a leading expert in the field of ionic silver and its use for immune-system support in humans.
He sees millions upon millions of people suffering and dying needlessly from infectious disease and knows the difference that ionic silver can make. It’s a matter of distribution and training, and of course the funding. He sees this as an area ripe with possibilities for truly making a difference.
He teaches chi gong, tai chi, meditation, breathing, and related practices for creativity, stress relief, health and longevity based primarily on authentic Taoist arts. He believes that these practices hold in them a jewel of potential benefits for anyone who learns and practices them.
“The more influential we are, the more it’s incumbent on us to find creative ways to contribute to the well-being and healthy evolution of humanity and the planet if we want to consider ourselves cool.”
