Corporate Health…Chronic Illness Prevention and Management
Corporate health programs can be just as personalized and focused as looking after our own health.
Corporate programs usually focus on the outer layers – well being or “wellness” and systemic, looking at the biometrics and diagnostics. True chronic illness prevention and management comes from the deepest level of our being – our cell being. How can we protect our cells from the daily assaults of our exposures and choices? Fact is, the root of all of our chronic issues is inflammation. Chronic inflammation is the product of oxidative stress.
“Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” -World Health Organization
Long-term oxidative stress damages the body’s cells, proteins, and DNA. OS strongly contributes to aging and is accepted to be at the root of many of our chronic conditions including diabetes, cancers, heart and vascular disease, depression, neurodegenerative disease, arthritis, Alzheimer’s, insulin resistance, IBD……More and more of our chronic issues are being linked to oxidative stress.
According to the WHO, chronic diseases is on the rise worldwide. An aging population and changes in our environment and our lifestyle choices are contributing to this steady increase.
Controlling oxidative stress is paramount to a “healthy lifestyle.” We help employees understand potential oxidative stressors, how to reduce inflammation. All of our programs – whether it be nutrition, exercise….the focus at the core is reducing inflammation.
