Ways to Wellbeing brings the Wellness Revolution and Eve Hillary to Adelaide for its official launch.
Ways to Wellbeing provides resources and education through videos, newsletters and ebooks. It helps people choose a modality and practitioner for their specific condition using natural therapies as an effective path to health and wellbeing and as a complementary therapy alongside their existing allopathic healthcare.
The western world is experiencing health decline and in Australia, if current health trends continue, by 2020 depression will be the largest health burden, 80% of adults will be obese(1) and cancer incidence will grow by 40% (2). Diabetes is currently the fastest growing chronic disease. Frightening statistics? Yes they are. But this does not mean we need to be one of them.
Australia is trailblazing a WELLNESS Revolution.
Complementary and Natural medicine is currently a $3 billion industry in Australia and growing at 6% per annum (3) as people are finding effective natural solutions to their healthcare problems. There are more than 15,000 Wellbeing Practitioners in Australia, more than double in the last 10 years, providing services to the public with 43% of Australians using natural medicine.
Best selling author Eve Hillary is a health practitioner who co-founded the first integrative medical clinic in her community, offering medical choices. As a freelance journalist, Eve’s articles often raised controversial issues well before their time.
Her first book, Children of a Toxic Harvest, traced the healing journey of her chemically injured son. It was nominated for the Eureka Award in 1997 and since becoming a best seller its message has been credited with creating awareness about environmental health and encouraging consumers to choose safer products.
Eve’s latest book, Sarah’s Last Wish, is the haunting and unforgettable story of a courageous teen-aged girl who stood up for her right to live and die with dignity, while being forced by an inflexible health system into a tragically unsuccessful treatment for her rare cancer. Since the book appeared for several weeks on the Dymocks best seller list in 2011, it has inspired an awakening to better health care.
Ways to Wellbeing, formerly known as Adelaide Wellbeing, was established to educate and provide information to the public about natural healthcare. South Australian innovation.
