Why 'Complete Wellness' is essential?
- Body - We live in the most obese nation. The consequences of obesity is high blood pressure, high cholesterol, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, breathing problems, asthma, sleep apnea, joint problems, fatty liver disease, and gallstones. Every 24 hours, 5,000 people are diagnosed with diabetes, 810 die, 230 amputations, 120 kidney dialysis transplants, and 50 go blind.
- Mind - Mental illness has come to the forefront - suicide is the leading cause of death for ages 10-34, 123 American die by suicide every 24 hours, which is 1 every 12 minutes.
- Soul - Teaching our children to love themselves, respecting others, and understanding their behavior comes from within (discipline, self-control, patience, etc.)
If we start building this foundation and being proactive, as adults, our children will live a more productive and happier life.
