Health Education & Lifestyle Program – HELP
How would you like to live for another 5, 10 or 15 years disease free and medication free?
What if you could reverse the effects of a chronic disease which you are currently suffering from?
What is the point in living until 80 if you can’t remember your own name due to dementia?
Imagine spending your later years healthier than ever running around and playing with your grand kids!
You can, with a little HELP.
The rise of Chronic Disease
Chronic disease is on the rise and is threatening not only our longevity, but also our quality of life.
For the first time in the history of mankind, our life expectancy has begun to decline, and it’s not because we have reached the natural limit of the human body at 85 years of age.
It is because pharmaceutical drugs and surgical intervention can only get you so far. Ultimately chronic disease will win in the end.
Chronic disease is the single biggest health challenge facing people in the western world. Our diet, our largely sedentary lifestyle and the environment in which we live is all contributing to lifestyle related disease such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, dementia and Alzheimer’s.
At the core of the problem is inflammation. Our bodies are simply not designed to cope with long term, persistent levels of inflammation. But yet, poor eating habits supresses our immune system and leads to a leaky gut, which leads to inflammation – the precursor to chronic disease.
Think about it, here are the seven most common types of chronic disease, and they are all caused or linked to inflammation in the body.
- Arthritis – joint inflammation
- Asthma – lung inflammation
- Cancer – chronic inflammation which causes DNA damage
- Cardiovascular disease – arterial inflammation
- Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease – lung inflammation
- Type 2 Diabetes – internal inflammation caused by high visceral fat
- Dementia and Alzheimer’s – brain inflammation
All of these diseases are largely preventable by eating a healthy diet, staying active and controlling the environment in which we live.
Genetics plays in fact a very small part in chronic disease. Just because breast cancer runs in your family doesn’t mean you will develop it. Just because dementia runs in your family doesn’t mean it will get you.
Diet, lifestyle and our environment all play a much bigger role than genetics.

Its never too late to prevent or reverse the effects of chronic disease. And a lot of it starts with achieving and maintaining a health body weight for our height, more specifically a healthy body fat level.
Over 60% of Australians are now overweight or obese according to the ABS and the Body Mass Index (BMI). Carrying too much body fat, especially internal visceral fat around the organs, leads to a whole bunch of problems, the biggest being type 2 diabetes.
Have you ever wondered why after losing weight on the latest fad diet, you gain it all back again in 6 months?
Have you ever started a diet and found that after a few weeks you begin to self-sabotage and end up right back where you started?
Most people can lose weight in the short term, but are unable to keep it off in the long term.
For permanent, long lasting change to occur we must tackle the underlying bad habits, behaviours and beliefs that led to the weight gain the first place.
Why do you eat the foods that you eat?
Why do you reach for the bad foods when you’re stressed?
