Hi this is Arthur,

The Problem

Waist circumference is seldom associated with gut wellness. Why not?

A large waist circumference is a red flag for gut health and gut health is the key to our overall wellness.  It is generally caused by poor lifestyle habits, including food, physical inactivity and a sedentary lifestyle, but it may also be caused by our genes, which means it may not be our fault! A happy gut is, therefore, vital for our short and long-term health and is fundamental to everything else in our lives. “All disease begins in the gut”, the wise saying goes. Just think, for a moment how your relationships, career, creativity, purpose, and general wellness are impacted when you have a nagging gastrointestinal problem.

The consequences

“Junk food”, for example, impacts our waist circumference and our gut wellness and  is associated with chronic diseases, such as disease Crohn’s ulcer colitis, inflammatory bowel disease, leaky gut., as well as constipation, diarrhoea, heartburn and bloating. Overweight may also impact  out sleep, anxiety and depression. self-esteem, social engagement and quality of life.

Employees with gut problems struggle with work performance, low morale and is a leading cause of absenteeism. but is rarely revealed (Research shows 40% of the adults in the world suffer from gastrointestinal disorders of varying severity).

The solution

  1. Our VHS programme is unique & effective. It can help you/your employees, improve  gut health,  de stress, declutter life physically and emotionally, give  more control of wellness, find peace,  tame anxiety, boost energy, effectiveness, lift mood and connection with others, day-by-day and improve employees’ productivity and your organisation’s bottom line.
  2. Waist circumference reductions can be achieved by simple lifestyle changes, including moderate exercise and diet. As a rule, a waist circumference larger than 102cm for men and 89cm for women could mean that you have a higher risk of serious illness. You can measure your waist circumference by wrapping a tape measure around your waist just above your hips, standing up straight, and breathing out. (Don’t cheat!)

# Action tip: There’s a lot you can do to keep your waist circumference  in check. Avoid sugar, wheat, dairy, genetically modified food, processed foods, high-fat foods and soft drinks, alcohol, reduce your stress and drink plenty water.
