Our guiding principle: Health involves four areas of a person's life: body, mind, spirit, and relationships. We believe nourishment (healthy inputs) and activity (healthy outputs) must occur, in depth, across all four areas in order to realize optimum vitality. Our opportunity: Chronic disease is a global issue that transcends all demographics. Change is needed, both in thinking and behavior. Our best chance of improving the health of the world, long-term, is to focus not only on the needs and education of adults, but also on the next generation. Doing what we can to facilitate these changes is the opportunity and a responsibility we have embraced. http://www.wellnourished.org/
