WholeLife is a project UNIQUE to the surgeries in Teignmouth, Dawlish and their branch surgeries. Its aim is to help participants make permanent lifestyle changes that will reduce the risk of long-term health conditions developing, or getting worse. It includes a 7 week course; just 1 hour a week. Different topics are discussed each week, with current medical evidence behind each topic – ranging from how lifestyle contributes to common conditions such as cancer and diabetes, to the importance of exercise and social connection, and including the food that is best for human health and the health of our planet. The course includes a 4-week challenge to help you change to healthy plant-based eating, with before and after health measurements and a supportive team of GPs and dietitians. The challenge reprogrammes your taste buds and teaches about different food groups. The aim is overall sustainable lifestyle health (not one specific thing like weight loss), however we have seen incredible improvements in blood pressure, weight and cholesterol in just 28 days.
This course is suitable for every adult, no matter how healthy you are, or how many long-term medical conditions you may be starting to develop or have already. If you live within the Teignmouth and Dawlish area, the course is FREE. You just have to be over the age of 18 and motivated to change your lifestyle!
