Get Healthy – Stay Healthy
Microbiome and Heart Health Talk
Norwich Wednesday 22nd November 7.15pm
There is a paradox, that in the 21st Century for the first time in history we now know the science (and it is out there) of how the body functions in detail, we know how the biochemistry works inside our cells and how the key components of those cells respond to different foods.
We are also starting to understand how the health (or otherwise) of our microbiome (gut) is key to general wellbeing. And yet we are sicker that we have ever been, what the hell is going on?
We are in the midst of an epidemic of obesity and diabetes the likes of which the world has never seen. With obesity come a cluster of chronic diseases, Fatty liver disease, hypertension, Alzheimer’s, stroke, heart disease, gallbladder disease, diabetes, cancer, arthritis. This is going to bankrupt the NHS, it is already overwhelmed. Diabetes has increased 700% in the US since the 1960s the figures are astonishing.
Scientists are now saying that babies born today will not live as long as their parents. To me that is disgusting, what are we doing to ourselves and our children. What are governments doing about it? ……… nothing
We/all of us, have to ‘cut through the noise’ and understand the science and then take responsibility for our own and family’s health.
Our mantra is Awareness + Prevention=Wellness. Our aim is to create and build a community of wellness advocates. I am also looking for leaders, like-minded passionate people to join us in taking our message to the people and to become part of a new leadership team. If you are interested to get involved, please contact me without delay.
If you are in the East Anglian area you can join us for our first meeting in Norwich on Wednesday 22nd November, 7.15pm registration for 7.30 start. The talk is entitled ‘Microbiome and Heart Health’ For more information and to secure your seat please go to our Eventbrite page link: https://microbiomeandhearthealth.eventbrite.com
Why I am so passionate about health and wellness?
It was 6 years ago now when I went upstairs to get my jacket and at the top of the stairs I was out of breath, I was gasping for air and knew immediately I was in trouble. I was in hospital within the hour where I was diagnosed with a pulmonary embolism, (blood clots on the lungs). The NHS were brilliant in stabilizing my condition; they tested me every which way and put me on blood thinners to get rid of the clots, I was a very lucky boy.
With reference to my health, up until that point I had a simple mantra, “if I keep fit I might live longer” and I was fit and healthy, so I thought, (but obviously not). I ran three times a week, a keen cyclist, I was not overweight, didn’t smoke and drank only in moderation.
My simple mantra was exactly that, it was too simple and fundamentally I was not aware of the key functions inside my body and how they really worked and that if I looked after and respected them then they would govern my wellbeing and potential longevity.
I was angry with myself for allowing myself to get into a situation where I nearly died. Laying in my hospital bed I made a decision; from that moment on I would become a wellness advocate, reading absorbing all things health and wellness.
That was six years ago and on my journey back to great health I have discovered many things health and wellness of which I had been totally ignorant of before my PE.
I also discovered a company, Synergy Worldwide that has profound wellness products that have massively benefited my health, in particular my cardiovascular health. Six years-ago my artery age was measured at 70 years old, I was 57 at the time, (another humbling experience). Six years later I have normal blood pressure and an artery age of a 40-year-old by using the Synergy products.
I can categorically say that I feel fitter and healthier today than I did 20 years-ago and I know this because I now understand how to get healthy and stay healthy and how to monitor it.
I am passionate about health and wellness and about helping people to Get Healthy and Stay Healthy. I am aligning myself with Synergy Worldwide’s life changing wellness products that are massively benefiting people with the 21st century diseases of CVD, obesity, diabetes, dementia and mental health issues.
The science is out there, and we now know how the biochemistry works inside our bodies, and how by making simple poor choices we can massively impact our health causing serious health outcomes.
Our mantra is Awareness + Prevention = Wellness and my mission now is to take the message of Get Healthy – Stay Healthy to the rest of the country, using different 21st century conduits to get the word out. Our aim is to create and build a community of wellness advocates and raving fans. I am also looking for leaders, like-minded passionate people to join me in taking our message to the people and to become part of a new leadership team. If you are interested to get involved, please contact me without delay.
I am making a commitment to post every week with lots of health and wellness information and all the team news.
Kind regards Peter Ragg
