The Six (Surprising) Pillars of Health - discover the unexpected factors that are holding you back from optimal wellness, and learn how to quickly and easily improve on them. 

There’s no doubt about it – modern societies are experiencing sharply rising rates of chronic diseases – diabetes, obesity, heart disease, cancer, and autoimmune conditions are all on the rise.  Surely diet plays a major role.  However, there are a variety of other environmental factors that also have been shown to negatively impact our health.  These ‘pillars of health’ include sleep, stress, toxins, exercise, and connection.  Imbalances in these areas can set of a cascade of adverse physiological changes.  Often, a chronic health condition originates from imbalances in more than one of these areas.  Fortunately, it is possible to take control of your health by addressing these six ‘pillars’.  In this talk, you’ll learn the specific health problems caused by imbalances in these areas.  You’ll also get lots of tips for how to improve in each area.  You’ll even get access to a free handout that provides you with the helpful resources we discussed.
