Seventy percent of deaths in America are due to chronic medical conditions.One in every two Americans (133 million) have a chronic medical condition; this equates to 75% of healthcare costs in America.

Studies have long demonstrated that lifestyle changes which include proper diet and exercise not only aid in disease prevention, but can also help decrease symptoms of disease, allowing people with chronic disease to improve daily function and enhance overall quality of life.

Seton Health Wellness, based on the Six Dimensions of Wellness will help you develop the tools and resources needed to prevent disease, increase energy and develop an overall sense of well being and strength. The six-week program focuses on helping you identify and implement personal goals for overall wellness. You will also learn the fundamentals of exercise and develop easy-to-follow exercise programs.

What is Wellness?

Wellness and health are often used interchangeably. Wellness is more than having a healthy body and not falling into sickness; it encompasses six individual dimensions; each component is equally vital in the pursuit of optimal wellness.
