The Current State of Our Health – The Wagner Way to Wellness
The United States has become one of the sickest nations in the world. We have the most obesity, illness and disease, with cancer now rivaling heart attacks as our #1 killer. Even our young children are being diagnosed with cancer, obesity, late diabetes, autism, celiac disease, high cholesterol, high triglycerides and signs of narrowing and hardening of the arteries. Recent research presented at the American Heart Association’s scientific meeting in New Orleans, in the fall 2008, stated that more than half of the 70 youngsters ages 10 to 18, enrolled in the Children’s Mercy Hospital Study had a “vascular age” about 30 years older than their actual ages, putting them at risk for early heart attacks, strokes and death.
These findings are unprecedented and unacceptable. Our children are our future and the future is not looking so bright. It’s obvious that what we’re doing now is not working. Basically, we tend to treat our symptoms and not the cause of those symptoms.
To achieve true health, we need to learn to practice preventive medicine, live a healthy lifestyle and take responsibility for our actions. We can’t pass the buck to the doctors, looking for the magic pill of health. It’s not their responsibility, it’s ours!
If a foundation is weak, the structure will collapse. If we work on fixing our basic physical foundation – the way we live, eat and think – we can take charge, be in control and have long healthy lives. Essentially, we
become the “cause” and not the “effect.”
Let’s Be Honest
Illness is the result of poor nutrition, bad eating habits and a sedentary lifestyle. Natural foods include foods that are organically grown, as well as those that are not processed, refined or stored for any length of time. Consuming processed, refined, and chemically treated foods is not only unnatural; it can be dangerous and can rob the body of its own natural resources. If left unchecked, it can potentially contribute to diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes, arteriosclerosis, arthritis and Alzheimer’s. Through dietary improvements, the effects of these deficiencies may be eased, thus helping to alleviate their symptoms. In fact, I find that with every new client, my first recommendation is to change their eating habits, so we can decrease the artificial and increase the natural. Once that happens, we’re on our way to a healthier lifestyle.
Achieving “20 Forever”
The motto at my clinic is “20 Forever,” meaning how to maintain a youthful, vibrant existence with the energy and health of being 20 for your entire life! I have thousands of clients achieving this state of health by following my life-changing 7 step program called The Wagner Way to Wellness®. The Wagner Way to Wellness is a positive lifestyle change. It is not a quick fix or diet. It is a powerful way of living and something you do every minute of every day of your life. My intention is to help educate you and support your growth, so you can go anywhere in the world, make good decisions, and look, feel and be your best at all times.
We are typically programmed to buy into the old-age mentality of “Oh, you’re 40 now, not 20 anymore; you have to accept that you are getting old and you will be facing health issues.” It doesn’t have to be this way; many of these health issues can be avoided. It has been shown that if we learn how to replenish our bodies, replace the things we stop producing as we age, eat and live correctly, we can recapture our youth, (which by the way, you begin to lose in your early 20s), and maintain that recaptured youth as long as we are here. You can be an active participant with a quality life. It is definitely a new mindset. Old age should not be part of our personal universe.
In order to achieve the attitude and wellness of “20 forever,” you need to know the rules so you can play the game…and win! The purpose of this Blog is to teach The Wagner Way to Wellness so you can master the rules to win the game.
In future posts coming soon, we’ll be explaining how you can implement the Wagner Way to Wellness to improve your health.
