Cancer and Heart disease now account for more than 50% of preventable deaths in Newfoundland and Labrador. In addition, 70% of our population are now classified as overweight or obese and 67% of Newfoundlanders and Labradorians over the age of 12 have at least 1 chronic disease. While many people may find this statistic causes a sense of despair and hopelessness as we seem to be getting unhealthier as a society despite the fact that we spend more on health care than ever, at 365Wellness we are motivated and excited by these statistics because we also know that these disease conditions are largely caused by lifestyle factors and therefore we can change them with the right approach and support. The pain, fatigue, loss of energy you are feeling are simply symptoms of a larger issue and while we may address the back pain or neck pain that brought you to seek our help in the first place, it is important that we also give you the tools and supports to live better and feel better for the rest of your life and provide you with our exclusive 365Lifestyle Support program
Why do I need 365Lifestyle Support?
Humans are, by nature, social beings and as a result we have tendencies to want to conform to what overall society tells us is normal. In fact, the Japanese have a saying, “The nail that sticks up gets hammered down.” While conformity is not by nature a bad thing in some situations like “ You’re not going to drive after you have just had 4 drinks are you?” our current social culture has normalized a lifestyle which is likely to cause this generation of children to have a shorter life expectancy than their parents. Most people would agree that conformity with this societal trend is not a good thing but because the majority of our population are not leading healthy lifestyles, deciding to make healthier choices and lead a more wellness focussed life can be a daunting task when we feel like we are the nail sticking up or that we are swimming upstream.
That’s why, when you choose 365Wellness as your wellness partner you will be paired with one of our trained 365Wellness professionals who will help support you through the ups and downs that come with a journey towards true wellness.
