If you are an employer, you want to educate your employees so they can experience better health. Productivity losses related to your employee's health problems cost you $1,685 per employee per year says the Centers for Disease Control. Indirect costs of poor health including absenteeism, disability, or reduced work output may be several times higher than direct medical costs.

Addiction is a chronic brain disease. Forty million Americans ages 12 or older - or more than 1 in 7 people - have addiction involving nicotine, alcohol or other drugs. This is more than the number of Americans with heart conditions (27 million), diabetes (26 million) or cancer (19 million). Addiction is costly to our Nation exacting more than $700 billion annually in costs related to crime, lost work productivity and health care. Studies have documented the effectiveness of treatment with total savings related to health care, reduced drug-related crimes and criminal justice exceeding costs by a ratio of 12 to 1.

Our programs focus on recovery and prevention by providing these six results.

2017 University of Minnesota Research Findings

The University of Minnesota feasibility research study concluded that Meditative Movements™ may be effective in reducing anxiety, depression, and fatigue, while improving emotional and functional well-being for persons with chronic health conditions. The findings suggest that Meditative Movements™ may be used as an alternative and complementary therapy or rehabilitation program for persons with chronic health conditions.

Chronic diseases and conditions such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, obesity, and arthritis are among the most common, costly, and preventable of all health problems.

The prevention and management of chronic health conditions is a major challenge for the current health care system. There is growing evidence that complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) have beneficial effects for managing the many symptoms of chronic health conditions. Use of CAM to improve health and well-being has increased over the years (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 2007). American adults are most likely to use CAM for problems such as stress, fatigue, and pain.

When asked what was most beneficial, research participants responded.

  1. More calm
  2. Better sleep
  3. Feel more positive about self
  4. Less negative attitude
  5. More confidence
  6. Less tired, more energy
