I hope you can join us on Saturday for a huge day of free talks and mini treatments. This Expo at Simply Natural is part of Manningham Healthy Lifestyle Week. You are welcome to attend all or part of the day. No bookings are necessary. It’s a great opportunity to meet our Practitioners and learn more about what we do. The Tunstall Square Twilight Festival is from 4pm to 9pm so we will kick on with Live Music, an Animal Farm, Jumping Castle and lots of Market Stalls.
Weight Loss Month in February
Congratulations to everyone who took action this month to get their weight under control. Whether it was by attending our Weight Loss Seminar, having a consultation with Manuela Picinich, our weight loss specialist, having a foot detox or some acupuncture, it’s great to see so many people on the way to achieving their ideal healthy weight.
One of the most concerning things about carrying excess weight is the risk of Type 2 Diabetes. Type 2 is the most common form of diabetes, affecting 85 to 90 per cent of all people with diabetes. In Victoria there are currently over 70 new cases of diabetes diagnosed every day and it is estimated that 1.2 million Victorians are currently in the high risk category for developing Type 2 Diabetes.
- 366 million people have diabetes in 2011; by 2030 this will have risen to 552 million
- The number of people with type 2 diabetes is increasing in every country
- The greatest number of people with diabetes are between 40 to 59 years of age
- 183 million people (50%) with diabetes are undiagnosed
We are pleased to let you know that Simply Natural Therapies is now an official provider of the Diabetes Australia Life! Program designed to reduce the risk of Type 2 Diabetes. Whether you have a weight issue or not, this program is open to anyone at risk. (Sorry, you can’t attend if you have already been diagnosed with Diabetes).
Are you at risk of Type 2 Diabetes?
Find out by taking the RISK TEST and call us to register your place in our new diabetes prevention program.
The Diabetes Australia Life! program supports you to take control of your life, teaching you how to adopt healthy behaviours and a more active lifestyle to reduce your risk of Type 2 Diabetes, heart disease and stroke. Its funded by the Victorian Government and managed by Diabetes Australia – Victoria, Life!
If you are at risk the very cool thing is that the program is fully funded so it doesn’t cost you anything! Its a really rare thing in the natural therapies industry to get Government funding so I am really, really happy to offer this program.
I think it’s fabulous that the Government is actually investing money in empowering people to take responsibity for their health. I heard a doctor on the radio this week saying that there is only so much he can do for people and that drugs and surgery can’t fix everything. Perhaps the medical profession and the government are starting to realise that lifestyle changes are the only thing that will cut the soaring cost of healthcare, not investing billions of dollars into finding cures for preventable, lifestyle related diseases.
Why not start with these three steps towards Simply Natural Health….
- Take our 30 Day Water Challenge
- Take our Free Mineral Analysis Assessment
- Take the Diabetes Risk Test
Remember if you are at risk of Diabetes call us ASAP to register for the next Life! course.
Wishing You Health and Happiness
