Tolleson Health Advisors exists so YOU can thrive. We take the confusion away and simplify what it looks like to be truly healthy. We provide a layer of support and guidance to create lasting lifestyle changes, so you can re-think the limits on what is possible.
EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US WAS PUT ON THIS PLANET FOR A PURPOSE.
What is your purpose?
Who do you want to be to your children, grandchildren, church, community, friends?
How can better health increase your capacity to fulfill your purpose?
Tolleson Health Advisors was created based on this belief. We can all accomplish more meaningful work when we engage in healthy lifestyle behaviors. There is no shortage of health information available to us today. But at times, it can seem overwhelming and confusing. So what should I be eating? Which diet is right for me? How am I supposed to know?
We need health care
not sick care
Consider these alarming statistics:
- 1 in 3 Americans has prediabetes or diabetes
- 86% of our healthcare spending goes toward chronic disease
- Chronic disease will generate $47 trillion in healthcare costs by 2030
- 7 of 10 deaths are caused by chronic disease
- Today is the first generation of kids expected to live shorter lifespans than their parents
WHY IS CHRONIC DISEASE ON THE RISE?
OUR LIVES ARE MIS-ALIGNED WITH OUR BIOLOGY
In other words, what we eat (highly processed, inflammatory foods) and how we live (too much sitting, not enough sleep, chronic stress, etc.) are no match for the way our bodies have evolved—and thus we’re out of sync with our surroundings, unable to function optimally.
We’re not set up to offer the most effective kind of care.
Seven minutes with a doctor is not enough time to put sustainable lifestyle changes in place. People need ongoing attention to support the interventions that will have the biggest impact on preventing or reversing chronic disease.
Our current medical model is the wrong tool for the job.
Conventional medicine is designed to address acute and traumatic medical conditions—infection, fever, wounds, broken limbs. But under its current model, it is no match to slow the development and progression of chronic disease.
BUT WAIT, TOLLESON HEALTH ADVISORS DOESN’T PRACTICE MEDICINE
Exactly! The solution isn’t more doctors. The solution is a layer of support that physicians do not have time for. Tolleson Health Advisors provides the support and guidance to make lasting lifestyle changes. We are not a replacement for your primary-care physician.
