Disease Prevention Healthstyle
Prevention should be the most important item with any Health & Wellness goal. Unfortunately the medical industry focuses mostly on Treatment, NOT Prevention. They prefer to treat you to death, not address prevention lifestyle. There is No Money going to the healthcare industry if you just don't get sick! Think of the money YOU will save in prescription and over-the-counter medications, office visits and lost work!
$ PREVENTION PAYS for ITSELF $
No diet, exercise program alone will prevent you from contracting disease. From the common cold to cancer, heart disease, diabetes two and more, they all await those who fail to recognize that the Standard American Lifestyle is KILLING you!
It's not only the SAD (Standard American Diet) that is rife with lousy food choices, it is the sad lifestyle that most Americans lead. Little exercise, constant stress, lousy nutrition; they ALL contribute to disease; sometimes DEADLY ones!
It is WAY cheaper and less painful to just NOT GET SICK!
So what is a Prevention Healthstyle?
Pretty simple really. Using just common sense would normally get folks to realize that cause and effect impacts disease. The Human Body is NOT designed to be sick; it IS designed to be HEALTHY. Too many people are fat, sick and nearly dead in America and around the Planet; especially in those places that have adopted the Standard American Diet. Go to almost any country and you will see American junk food & fast food establishments supplanting traditional, more healthy cultural normal, options.
Our Healthstyle program presents simple and low cost alternatives to the lifestyle you may currently be leading. It isn't rocket science but just applied experience and common sense supported by the latest scientific studies that never seem to make it to the mainstream media outlets.
You doctor and the healthcare industry seldom discuss it; although major players like Kaiser Permanente is now promoting a Plant Based Lifestyle! The current healthcare industry makes no money if you don't get sick. There is little to NO incentive for the medical industry, pharmaceutical industry and the supporting hospital & treatment centers to help keep you HEALTHY. Nope, the money is definitely in Treating Disease; most of which is totally PREVENTABLE.
That is what we focus upon in our Healthstyle program(s). Don't get sick; so you don't have to worry about reversing disease. It is far less painful to stay healthy; cheaper too, by a long shot.
Our programs show you how Healthstyle will pay for itself. Heck, you may even be able to bank your savings currently spent on drugs, treatments, and office visits; not to mention avoiding surgeries, and other extremely expensive treatments for diseases we hope you NEVER contract!
We will develop a nutritional program of meal planning, pantry rebuilding and ongoing Lifestyle Practices for you to move forward and adopt into your daily lifestyle. This is NOT A DIET! It is a Lifestyle Change to put you on your path to Continued Health & Wellness!
Our Nutritional/Lifestyle program focuses on simple, inexpensive but NUTRITIOUS FOOD and meals that are Delicious as well as nutritious. We will teach you how to cook if needed. Many people never learned or have forgotten how to prepare their own meals. At the core of our program(s) is the avoidance of poor nutrition choices that may have contributed to your disease.
Remember, your Health is your WEALTH; so spend it wisely!
45-Day Program Details
This 90-day program is a series of counseling sessions that start with basic lifestyle education, training and living adjustments. You will learn how to actually LIVE a healthier lifestyle, purging the bad and embracing the excellent. At the end of this program, you will not only be living a healthier lifestyle but may indeed loose significant weight, re-align your energy levels, improve your blood work (lower cholesterol, blood pressure and lower triglycerides).
The program consists of two different levels of intensity; all depending on your current medical and lifestyle situation and supported by medical analysis and counseling preliminary interviews.
We will spend between 25 and 30 HOURS with you personally to help you understand and achieve a healthier lifestyle! We will visit with you (either skype/phone/in-person) depending on your location and be available for questions and support.
Nutritional Survey and Dietary Review
This will consist of a one-on-one personal interview by a Lifestyle Coach supported by a Plant Based Nutritional Chef certified in Plant Based Nutrition.
Your current dietary style will be reviewed, your common meal components and other dietary food intake will be documented. Basically, a review of your common/current food choices, quantity and frequency of your eating patterns.
We will cover your food choices:
- Your current food budget, including snacks and treats.
- Your dining patterns – how frequently you eat.
- How often you dine at restaurants.
- Restaurants of choice
- How frequently and which fast food establishments you frequent.
We will cover your current Lifestyle:
- How often and what type of exercise
- Indoor and Outdoor Activities
- Work Environment
- Home Environment
- Friends and Relationships
- Spousal Relationships – specifically household member health conditions
- Stress levels – as determined by home and work environments
- Entertainment Choices
Once this assessment is completed we will prepare a proposed Lifestyle and dietary/meal program that will work best with your medical profile, previously established. Because each individual is different, medically, physically, emotionally and lifestyle, each person will be provided an individualized program to follow.
How We Will Proceed
We will ask you to maintain a dietary log. This would include Anything you eat/consume. This would be kept for the duration of our 90-day program and we would expect a due diligence level of accuracy. We will suggest different ways/methods of maintaining this dietary log. We suggest a smart phone application from FOODUCATE that will also provide nutritional information that will aid you in better food/nutritional food choices, but a notebook is fine too. Training will be provided.
Each week we will schedule consultation, either in person or by phone, with the lifestyle counselor to assess your progress and compliance with the suggested metabolic and nutritional program.
Additional medical analysis and tests may be suggested in accordance with best practices and as called for by due diligence to monitor health and metabolic levels.
Food & Menu Planning
Based on the Nutritional Survey and Dietary Review, a specific dietary plan will be recommended. We will offer meal plans and suggest food selections based upon your existing eating patterns but ones that will adjust your food intake and replace the unhealthier choices with ones that will encourage both weight loss as well as health improvement.
An exercise program will be recommended. This program will be aligned with your current abilities and capabilities and designed to NOT over-stress your physical ability. It may gradually increase in intensity and duration depending upon your progress.
Typically, the exercise will focus on movement, not necessarily on high impact activities. Simple fast paced walking is what is most beneficial but other forms of exercise may be suggested to support skeletal strength and muscle maintenance. Yoga, Tai Chi or other moderate programs can be recommended based upon your home location and ability to attend the sessions. We work closely with local health & fitness studios and may recommend one or more for your consideration.
No Gym memberships are required, although this may be helpful to join a more structured exercise regime. In some cases, massage therapy may be recommended to help detoxify and promote lymphatic drainage; a key component in overall health.
These exercise programs and suggestions are optional and may incur additional costs to you. If you are considered a ‘Senior Citizen’ you may be eligible for the Silver Sneakers programs offered at many of the Gyms around the Orlando Area.
Basic and Advanced Program Details
Everyone is different and require varying levels of support with any medical and lifestyle program. We offer these two levels to be more supportive to those who desire more personalized contact and support. For some, specific dietary foods may be suggested to offer meal replacement alternatives, quick meal preparation and healthier snack alternatives.
Both Basic and Advanced programs include a copy of “Restoring America’s Health” by Chef Nancy Stein.
Premium Dietary Lifestyle Program
In some cases, more assistance and support is needed for many combating a more severe weight issue. For those we offer additional support services, training and consultation. Because this program is focused upon Health and Food Choices, it may be daunting to many who have relied on fast food for their daily meals. That must change and to do that, you must begin to prepare your own meals at home.
If you don’t cook or even don’t know how to cook, this can be a difficult situation, but we hope to make things easier. We will provide actual hands-on cooking classes and instruction by a professional Plant Based Nutrition Certified Chef. You will learn simple techniques and skills that will enable you to prepare healthier and more nutritious meals for the rest of your life.
You will receive:
- A complete Plant Based Lifestyle overview (slide show and lecture)
- A Four-Hour Cooking Class at our Location (extra fee for classes in your home)
You will learn healthily living practices that will last the rest of your life. You will have more energy, better mental acuity, and in general, be a happier, healthier person.
In addition, for those who really need more hand-holding, we offer an on-call service to those who need additional help with meal preparation. While the menu/meal plan will provide recipes, many just have additional questions. We will provide you a ‘hot line’ to our professional chef. You will be able to make one call per day for help/assistance for meal preparation up to 7pm each day for the duration of the program or an additional fee of $600. A similar on-going support service is offered after the Premium Program ends. Ask for details.
