Houston, we have a problem…
One big reason we focus on lifestyle is to challenge what is accepted as normal, ordinary health.
Looking at the ailments of our culture, we see the key role of lifestyle and the desperate need to address the problems in contemporary American culture. It can be hard to realize you need help with your lifestyle since poor practices are so endemic in our culture. The staggering number of advertisements on television for antacids, sleep aids, and prescription drugs indicate the prevalence of regular, ongoing health problems and the acceptance of them as a matter of course and not a symptom of poor lifestyle. The results of poor lifestyle also show in depressed immune systems, with childhood diseases now appearing in adults and 1/3 of all adults expected to experience a shingles outbreak. And that is just looking at things on the level of physical well being, without going on to emotional and spiritual levels of health which we also address.
Our offerings are so varied because we will use any entrance point to help people. Looking at almost any area of life, we can teach basic and highly valuable foundational skills for living.
