Food choices that taste great, control weight, & promote health!
For the last ten years, Michael Brown has owned and operated four businesses dedicated
to finding solutions to the American health crisis. This crisis threatens businesses that
struggle to compete in global markets. This crisis threatens governments that struggle to
finance the 66 million baby boomers who will qualify for Medicare over the next 20 years.
Furthermore, this crisis has a personal cost as millions struggle with high cost health
insurance and epidemic levels of chronic diseases, many of which are preventable with
changes in diet, exercise, and stress. Considering chronic diseases account for upwards of
75% of health care costs, success in this area promises substantial benefits. Our goal is to
succeed with preventive health care and substantially reduce the need for conventional
health care for the most devastating and expensive forms of chronic disease.
Specifically, these businesses researched, developed, and sold products and services to
control weight and improve health. Our mission is to develop great tasting food choices
along with services that control weight and lower risk for heart disease, stroke, cancer,
diabetes, and arthritis. These chronic diseases account for 7 out of 10 preventable deaths
in the United States. These chronic diseases often require multiple drugs, extended hospital
stays, and chronic pain and suffering. Mounting medical research indicates that people who
control their weight are significantly less likely to require acute intervention in a hospital
setting, offering additional savings in health care costs.
Controlling weight and improving health also offers a way to boost productivity. A healthy
employee who has controlled weight is a more productive employee. Fewer sick days are
but a fraction of the benefits. Controlling weight and promoting health builds a body that is
active and energized, a mind that thinks clearly with less stress, and a spirit that thrives.
Boosted productivity has the added advantage of helping offset the costs of preventive
Our food choices also taste great, making weight control and wellness to be a pleasurable
and preferred experience. Our services combine education, skills development, and stress
management so that the employee becomes the expert on weight control and wellness.
They become a walking, talking, thriving testament to the benefits of health. Contrast this
approach with an employee offered 15 minute appointments with a doctor whose only real
option is to prescribe drugs. And, these drugs do not address the burden that excess
weight inflicts on your heart, vascular system, immune system, and joints. Finally, 15 minute
appointments offer insufficient time to educate and support the patient even if the doctor
desires to do so.
