Why You Need A Wellness Program

Are You Sick & Tired of Being Sick & Tired?

Wellness is a persons’ greatest asset.  We understand that illness, stress, poor nutrition, and lack of satisfaction directly affect wellness. We are passionate about providing exceptional service to our clients by promoting healthy lifestyles and inspiring change through awareness, education, and motivation. We leverage ancient wisdom with the latest science-based research to develop wellness programs that yield positive results.  Our wellness programs are available in a variety of formats so you can choose to engage online, by phone, or if you are in the Denver Metro area, face-to-face. So if your sick and tired of being sick and tired, Let us help!

Health & wellness are personal, so we don’t take a one size fits all approach. We offer wellness programs custom tailored to your individual needs and expectations. You work with your personal  Wellness Consultant to set personal wellness goals in the continued effort of facilitating positive lifestyle change. Our personal, multifaceted programs are designed to address the spectrum of needs our clients may have in their pursuit of wellness.

I feel fine, I don’t need a wellness program…

You may feel fine today, but research shows, only 1 in 20 adults consistently engages in the 5 most important wellness behaviors:

  1. Regular physical activity
  2. 5 daily servings of fruits and vegetables
  3. Moderate drinking
  4. Non-smoking
  5. Healthy levels & types of fat intake

So if you feel fine now, but are not engaging in the above wellness behaviors, you are putting yourself at increased risk for health complications and disease. Learning your own personal risk factors and how you can minimize these risks is included in every one of our wellness programs.

Statistically it has been shown that for a sample of 100 working adults:

  1. 50 people will have a risk factor for moderate stress
  2. 35 people are at least 20% overweight
  3. 30 people will be smokers
  4. 25 of these people will have cardiovascular disease or high cholesterol
  5. 10 people will have high blood pressure

Most, if not all, of the above conditions can be reduced or prevented with lifestyle or behavior modification. In 2007, the US spent $2.26 trillion on healthcare, or $7,426 per person. In 2009, the US spent $8,047 per person on healthcare. Health insurance costs are rising faster than wages or inflation, and medical causes were cited by half of all bankruptcy filers in the US (2001).  Despite the fact that 75% of all healthcare costs are for the treatment of chronic conditions, many of which are preventable, the majority of healthcare spending goes to diagnosis and treatment of disease and only a very small percentage (5%) is spent on prevention.  Invest in your wellness now or spend money on your healthcare later, the decision is always up to you. You can avoid unnecessary health problems, let us show you how. You don’t need to learn how to live a new life, you need to learn how to incorporate simple healthy behaviors into your lifestyle, in a way that works for you and that you can continue for the rest of your life.

Research shows, two-thirds of the US population is overweight or obese, which increases the risk for diabetes, coronary heart disease, high blood cholesterol, stroke, hypertension, gallbladder disease, osteoarthritis (degeneration of joints), and sleep apnea or other breathing problems. Learning the basics of nutrition and eating a “real food” diet can make vast improvements to the way you feel and the level of your personal wellness. Health does not come in the shape of a pill. Enlightened Lotus Wellness does not sell supplements or advise our clients to take any kind of synthetic product. We are not trying to sell you a program that only works if you buy our product, we want to help you learn practical solutions for your life so that  you can live a happy, healthy and well life long into the future.  We focus on preventable conditions that will have the greatest impact on your personal wellness. Our assessments help recognize your  readiness to change the behaviors that impact your health and wellness while helping you explore the available options and what is meaningful and important to you.

Let us help you find your personal wellness. Often the path to improved health & wellness advances by small steps that build to bigger change.

Inspiring change through awareness, education, and motivation.
