Spreading Wellness Through Education

Almost 18 months ago, I brought eight people to Hippocrates Health Institute in Florida for a two-week wellness excursion. I didn’t know it then, but this is where my journey to finding my life’s purpose began.

 Helping to lead and coach my peers, I discovered my mission to educate people about wellness to help them lead healthy lives as well as reverse and prevent diseases.

But my journey was just beginning. This summer, I was fortunate enough to spend nine weeks at the Hippocrates Health Institute, learning from wellness experts and discovering new ways to live and teach healthy, plant-based lifestyles. It was an intensive program, and one that was incredibly rewarding thanks to being mentored by Brian Clement, the head of the institute.

I learned a lot about wellness and about myself in during those weeks, and by the time graduation rolled around, I understood my life’s mission: to spread wellness and prevent obesity and lifestyle-related diseases throughout my community with the help of the institute. And I am doing this through education.

Backed by a Team of Proven Experts

The program helped catalyze a lot of progress for me. After speaking at graduation, I had the opportunity to meet and connect with the extraordinary Betsy Bragg. A veteran in the wellness industry, she is the designer of the amazing Eat to Thrive program and has spent her career helping people live lives of wellness. Betsy passed the torch onto me and asked me to take her place as the executive director of Optimum Health Solution, guiding me as my educational consultant. 

The organization aims to prevent obesity and disease by educating and advocating for healthy living. Eat to Thrive helps teach people how to eat well and nourish their body and soul. We will be assessing people’s homes for toxins, remove them, and provide concrete next steps with regard to food and toxicity. . 

I’m now the executive director of this exemplary non-profit organization, helping to educate a wider range of people on the importance of wellness, starting with children. And with our connection to Hippocrates Health Institute, I believe we can have a real and lasting impact on many people. Formed over 50 years ago, the Hippocrates Health Institute’s creation was inspired by the ideas of Hippocrates, the father of medicine. Within the institute, everyone is united by a shared goal: to foster a life of wellness through counseling, expert guidance, and healthy meals.

One of the greatest assets we can use to help our community is the invaluable expertise of Brian Clement. An industry legend, Brian has revolutionized wellness through the Institute and also serves on the board of Optimum Health Solution. Using the power of his experience and knowledge, I believe we have the potential to help a lot of people in our community.

Teaching Wellness from the Ground Up

Helping people live lives of wellness starts with educating them. I’m giving people in our community the resources they need to learn and understand healthy choices. For starters, I’m going back to my education at Hippocrates Health Institute and giving this invaluable experience to the people. My plans are to open up support centers starting in New York and New Jersey (and maybe someday worldwide!), for people to come and learn wellness from the ground up.

The rigidity of a plant-based raw diet is not for everyone—and that’s okay. We are helping anyone and everyone in our community who comes to us, regardless of their lifestyle. Even if you don’t go fully plant-based or raw, there are ways to optimize your wellness with simple lifestyle changes. Diets, supplements, exercise, even simple changes like turning off your cell phone can make a difference. That’s what we’re teaching.

Living healthy isn’t easy, and it’s something that even I struggle with every day. Who doesn’t love sweets! But having the support of the Institute, and the people who believe in our mission, is something that has impacted my life for the better—and I want to give that experience to others.

 A Lifetime of Learning

My career has taken me down many paths. Starting on Wall Street as an investment banker, I developed the business acumen to become a successful entrepreneur. My company, Angels of Debt, has helped countless people eliminate debt. 

In 2016, I launched Angels of Health to help provide people with knowledge to help heal themselves through the powers of proper exercise and nutrition. I’m now a certified Hippocrates Health Institute health educator, a position I am very proud to hold. Everything I do and have done is thanks to the love and support of my extraordinary wife. My wife, six kids, and two grandchildren keep me motivated to push myself to do better and live a long and healthy life.

Thanks to them, I’m continually trying to learn, adapt, and better myself and the people around me. As executive director of Optimum Health Solution, I am committed to researching every modality and every way to optimize health and am working hand in hand with physicians and hospitals.

I have become the only person in South Brooklyn certified in Bio-Well technology, a machine used to measure a person’s energetic wellness. What I do is measure wellness through light energy that fills the body, tracking just how much brightness your body is giving off. That way, I can tell effectiveness of certain healthy choices, supplements, essential oils, and anything else, and tell people how to live better.

Wellness and improving your life have no end point. They take a lifelong commitment to being better—and continued education and support. I want to help children by offering our study materials and kid’s recipe books to schools to help them understand how to make healthy choices from a young age. Every time someone graduates from our program, we welcome them to open their own center and spread more wellness. It’s an endless chain of accelerating healing and health 

At the end of the day, our mission at Optimum Health Solution is to prevent obesity, chronic disease, and malnutrition through the education and advocacy of healthy living. But of course, we can’t do this alone. Many people have stepped up, but two, in particular, are very dear people to me, David and Gladys Sutton. I want to thank them for their commitment to wellness 

We welcome anyone with a passion for wellness and the shared belief that lifestyle changes can make a difference. And we welcome those who want to make a change for themselves or their loved ones. To join our mission by donating or volunteering to this non-profit organization, or to get started, please visit optimumhealthsolution.org. Thank you and G-d bless.

I want to help children by offering our study materials and kid’s recipe books to schools to help them understand how to make healthy choices from a young age. Every time someone graduates from our program, we welcome them to open their own center and spread more wellness. It’s an endless chain of accelerating healing and health 

At the end of the day, our mission at Optimum Health Solution is to prevent obesity, chronic disease, and malnutrition through the education and advocacy of healthy living. But of course, we can’t do this alone. Many people have stepped up, but two, in particular, are very dear people to me, David and Gladys Sutton. I want to thank them for their commitment to wellness 

We welcome anyone with a passion for wellness and the shared belief that lifestyle changes can make a difference. And we welcome those who want to make a change for themselves or their loved ones. To join our mission by donating or volunteering to this non-profit organization, or to get started, please visit optimumhealthsolution.org. Thank you and G-d bless.
