What is the North Iowa Wellness Movement?
Margaret Meade, the great American Anthropologist and Author, once said,“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens, can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
Our mission is to help make North Iowa one of the healthiest places to live in our country. If we are able to achieve this, then our children will grow up in a world where health and wellness is at the forefront of their decision making process, the community members in each community will “get rid” of their medications that they have been told would be needed for the remainder of their lives, and the entire culture will become one of vitality and full potential. We foresee the North Iowa Wellness Movement as a tiny snowball that is picking up momentum as it soars downhill and becomes the backbone for possibility with the community. Knowledge is the absolute truth of health and when we combine this with clearly defined action steps that are both simple and highly rewarding, we will experience measurable health improvements and a brighter future. Each month the North Iowa Wellness movement will be hosting events, initiatives, lectures, teleseminars, etc., including:
- Workshops about raising healthy families, proper nutrition, and a healthy nervous system
- Programs specializing in helping children with ADHD
- Teaching opportunities for schools and church groups
- Exercise programs
- Walking Clubs
- Exercise classes
- Nutritional programs to transform the lives of those living with heart disease, diabetes, and hormonal imbalances.
We envision a paradigm shift where people realize health is something that comes from you, not something that happens to you. Health does not happen by accident, nor does sickness and disease. We want to remove the misinformation and replace it with, “THE TRUTH,” which consists of the necessity to give our bodies, minds, and souls that which it requires to express health. Consider the laws of the universe that apply to all living things. Those same laws apply to us. For a simple house plant to express or be healthy it must receive adequate amounts of water, sunshine, and nutrients. What would happen if it didn’t get appropriate amounts of one, two, or all 3 of the required elements? What if it got all its required elements, but we also poured a 12 oz. soda into the soil daily? It would, over time, become less and less healthy, until it eventually died. These same truths that apply to all living things also apply to us. If we regularly don’t give our bodies what it needs we will lose our health. This is the cause of nearly ALL DISEASE IN OUR COUNTRY.
Therefore, THE NORTH IOWA WELLNESS MOVEMENT WILL GIVE YOU…
-Knowledge to make informed decisions so that you can be come responseABLE to direct your health and live to your healthiest, fullest, and happiest life possible.
-Information is useless without action, therefore we create opportunities and simple action plans that meet you where you are and set a path that is specific to you.
-Continuously supply you with motivational information, guidance, and events to keep you on the path.
Health is a journey, not a destination so we will keep you engaged and informed…JOIN THE MOVEMENT!
