The MediLodge Whole Person Wellness Program Presents The Best Super Foods

We wrap up our month-long focus on Healthy Cooking with a list of super foods.  The MediLodge Whole Person Wellness Program encourages everyone to fit all of these foods in to your diet as often as possible.

Chocolate

An ounce of dark chocolate a day can do the body good.  It comes from the chocolate bean. The darker the chocolate the more nutrients you’ll get. This includes the antioxidant theobromine, which has been show to help reduce inflammation and help lower blood pressure.

The goal of the MediLodge Whole Person Wellness Program is to recognize the unique individuality of everyone.  This approach to wellness is an active process in which everyone is encouraged to make choices towards personal growth in seven dimensions of wellness: physical, social, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, occupational/vocational and financial.  Most workplace wellness programs focus entirely on physical health.  With a whole person wellness approach, the physical needs will not be downplayed, but will be held in equal importance as the dimensions that involve mind and spirit.  In whole person wellness a high priority is placed on prevention, individual involvement and the responsibility we each have for achieving optimal wellness of body, mind and spirit.
