H & W – Health and Wellness

Health & Wellness is essential to the quality of life a person leads.

Bad Flow – Example
Stagnation > Degeneration > Disease = Disharmonious state of health.
Good Flow – Example
Activity > Flow > Growth/Refinement = Harmonious state of health; (biological symphony).

Question, if today’s youth is tomorrow’s leaders, statistically how do we look as a nation?

Childhood obesity has more than doubled in children and quadrupled in adolescents in the past 30 years. The percentage of children aged 6–11 years in the United States who were obese increased from 7% in 1980 to nearly 18% in 2012. Similarly, the percentage of adolescents aged 12–19 years who were obese increased from 5% to nearly 21% over the same period. We strive to not only raise awareness for Health and Wellness but to fight to change the epidemic of health disease from a long life of bad nutritional and physical practices.  We want to be proactive and not reactive by implementing a culture of educating adolescent to adults in good physical and nutritional practices.  We are informing the youth that this has to be a way of life and instilling the importance of value for longevity in life.

Areas we target

Obesity, Diabetes, and High Blood Pressure
These three conditions are the prelude to heart disease, heart attack, stroke, kidney failure, and cancer.
