  • ®The secret of gettingahead is getting started.-Mark Twain © DW GROUP, LLC 2010
  • Why Wellness?
  • WE ARE WHAT WE EAT! Our bodies are made up of what we eat and drink.The body completely regeneratesour cells every 7 years The quality of our health is contingent upon the quality of the building materials going into our bodies.
  • WHY YOUR BODY NEEDS WATER Helps keep kidneys functioning properly Eliminates waste Helps with weight loss Gives body cells shape, form and elasticity Carries nutrients and oxygen to all cells And . . . It Has NO CALORIES!
  • And…Water Helps prevent Heart Disease!! Adventist Health Study, 6 years, 8280 men and 12017 women: Women / Men who had a high daily intake of water (5+ glasses) had 41% / 51% fewer heart attacks as those who had low intakes (<2 glasses). With those who drank other fluids (coffee, soda pop, etc.), they found no protective effects of higher fluid intake. In fact, those who had the highest fluid intake from other beverages (in place of water) had higher mortality rates, especially in women. - Source: American Journal of Epidemiology 155 (9):827-33, Jan. 2002
  • Exercise and the connection to Diabetes & Obesity
  • Can Lifestyle Change Our Genes?A New Study* Says YES! 30 men with low-risk prostate cancer chose lifestyle changes over conventional medical treatment Three months of major lifestyle changes: • a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes and soy products • moderate exercise such as walking for half an hour a day • stress management, such as meditation or deep breathing Results after 3 months: • Weight loss, lower blood pressure, other health improvements • Prostate biopsies showed changes in activity in about 500 genes — disease-preventing genes increased; disease- promoting genes shut down or “turned off”*Journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Dr. Dean Ornish, head of the Preventive Medicine Research Institute, Sausalito, California © DW GROUP, LLC 2010
  • Exercise and Human Growth Hormone Our production of Human Growth Hormone decreases significantly as we age Very important to our health: • Helps keep our body fat low • Helps us maintain our muscle mass and bone density • Just as important for women as for men EXERCISE promotes our internal production of growth hormone. • By gradually increasing the intensity or difficulty of exercise we are helping to increase growth hormone production.
