MRE’s Individual & Family Based Preventive Health & Wellness Program (Some Characteristics)

Health and wellness (or lack of) is a biopsychosocial phenomenon that has no boundaries. Ultimately, it amounts to an individual decision that also affects many others.  Enhanced decision-making skills that can lead to healthier lifestyles can be promoted or repressed in the workplace, the school, and especially the home.  We promote an integrated and comprehensive approach to wellness.

What?  (Summary)

Education > Motivation > Action > Support > Accountability.


  • Cancer, diabetes, excessive weight, heart disease, AD/HD, depression, stress, excessive prescriptive drugs, and autoimmune insufficiencies are spiraling upward, devastating families and threatening national productivity.
  • 99% of our national health care budget now spent on treatment vs. prevention.
  • The A.M.A. and massive research reports: prevention is possible NOW!
  • Education is the key.
  • Health issues are transgenerational. (Family members affect others in a family.)
  • Lifestyle changes (that can be difficult) need to be implemented asap.
  • MRE’s “Health Improvement Cascade” outlines the process and rationale.
