At Wellness Via Design we are passionate about health, wellness, and knowledge. This is because our physical health, emotional well-being, and intellectual knowledge, whether it is from intuition, education or observation are truly our most precious assets.
When I founded Wellness Via Design it seemed simple. We all place immense value on our health and well-being, and surely everyone must understand just how toxic our environment has become, right? The problem is that, with our busy lives in this 24/7/365 world, few people have time to stop and truly grasp the health implications of our current environment, even the conditions present in our own homes.
Yet, study after study shows us that the health of our population is rapidly declining:
- Life expectancy in the U.S. is decreasing – CDC, Mortality in the United States, 2015.
- Millennials are less healthy than Gen X members were at the same age. On average, a major decline in health begins at age 27 – Blue Cross and Blue Shield.
- American children have never been sicker. Over half (54%) are suffering from one or more chronic illnesses. – Children’s Health Defense, The Sickest Generation.
- Children Lost Over 160 Million IQ Points Due To Toxic Chemicals, New Study Warns – International Business Times
As our society struggles with autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), depression, anxiety, mood disorders, asthma and allergies, eczema, obesity, food allergies, diabetes along with a staggering number of autoimmune disorders and cancers – it is no wonder we are all too busy to stop to grasp the full health implications of our current environment.
At Wellness Via Design we are continuously researching and analyzing the data to determine how to create a truly healthy and balanced home. Because a home is more than a pretty space to live, ‘home’ is a feeling. A feeling that begins with our personal health and well-being.
It is time to be well!
