Wellness generally means a balance in all areas of life and it is a Learned Behavior, which results in an overall feeling of well-being. The word “wellness” invokes thoughts of nutrition, exercise, weight management and supplements. However, wellness is much more. Wellness is more than physical health or lack of disease. Wellness is a state of complete well-being in your mind and body. Wellness is a lifelong process of moving toward improving your physical, mental, emotional, and social well-being. Wellness is a lifelong relationship with your body, built on kindness and respect. The aim of wellness is to prevent lifestyle disease and experience a high quality of life while preserving optimal functionality up to 100 years or more . Wellness is the integration of body, mind, and spirit – the appreciation that everything you do, and think, and feel, and believe has an impact on your state of health and well-being and the health of the planet.
Think of two cultures in healthcare: illness and wellness. Illness is a domain of conventional medicine with the main focus on treatment. Wellness is a choice – a decision to make to move toward optimal health. Wellness is a way of life – the lifestyle you design to achieve your highest potential for well-being. Wellness offered as lifestyle is Your New Medicine. Wellness lifestyle, a new medicine is about learning that you can be in charge of this simple and potent medicine. The beauty of lifestyle medicine is that there are no side effects and is the best available approach for prevention of lifestyle diseases. Choose wellness lifestyle as your healthcare, join the wellness movement at Radiance Wellness Institute to learn how to practice the new medicine called Wellness Lifestyle.
Your wellness lifestyle, as a “new medicine,” is the single most important factor in determining your level of wellness. Epigenetics, a new biological science, helps to explain how choices we make in our lifestyle (what we eat, how we move and what thoughts we think) literally, affect our genetic expression and, ultimately, our health and wellness, or lack there of. The food choices we make, the stress we experience, the exercise we do or avoid, the quality of our sleep and even the relationships we choose actually choreograph to a significant degree which of our genes are active and which remain suppressed. Here is what is most compelling: If we embrace wellness lifestyle as a new medicine, we can change the expression of more than 70% of the genes that have direct bearing on our health and longevity.
Radiance Wellness Institute’s version of a wellness lifestyle program is called Radiant Wellness. Radiant Wellness a state of well-being in all area of life: mind, body, emotion, social and economic. The Radiant Wellness Program is comprehensive and consists of four components offered as four interactive workshops: Serenity, Exercise, Love and Food, summed up in the acronym SELF, from the word “self-care.” Radiant Wellness as a comprehensive wellness lifestyle program is a powerful, low-tech and low-cost intervention to stop and reverse the progression of lifestyle diseases by “turning-on” disease-preventing genes and “turning-off” disease-promoting genes.
