Focusing on employee wellness leads to healthier, more-engaged and more-productive workers.
Now more than ever, savvy company leaders know that workers who are well in all aspects of their lives are healthier, more engaged and more productive, which leads to more loyal and satisfied customers. Living and working during increased stress levels in a demanding and time-compressed world, has prompted many companies to turn to wellness programs to stem rising costs and to prevent, delay or manage chronic or debilitating health conditions among their employees.
Forward-thinking companies know that wellness is about helping their people live the best lives possible—mentally, physically and professionally. Wellness programs are successful in organizations that:
- Acknowledge wellness is an individual and institutional journey.
- Measure success both individually and institutionally.
- Understand the need for ongoing efforts that include many thoughtful, methodical and well-communicated actions.
For wellness programs to be even more successful in a future filled with uncertainty and opportunity, they must be treated as more than a series of benefits. They must be part of companies’ overall decision-making and instilled into corporate cultures.
The benefits of workplace wellness programs
- Reduced costs. Having healthy employees has clear financial benefits, and can drastically reduce healthcare costs for employers.
- Reduced stress. Wellness programs can help to reduce stress among employees.
- Greater productivity.
- Increased morale.
- Improved relationships.
Benefits of Wellness Programs
Research studies related to wellness indicate that Americans who take good care of themselves and make healthy lifestyle choices are healthier, happier, more productive, miss less work, and have lower healthcare costs. As a dental insurance broker, part of your role can be encouraging human resources representatives to bring wellness programs into their companies to encourage employees to adopt healthier lifestyles.
People today are busy. Very busy. There can be very little time for taking proper care of yourself. Between appointments, meetings and catching up on paperwork—and of course home lives—workers have barely any time to themselves. Putting a program in place can boost morale, improve health and fitness, and increase productivity in the workplace.
A Corporate Wellness Screening consists of:

- An EKO HEART EXAM checks for A-Fib and irregular heartbeats.
- A few minutes of Percussion Gun Therapy to make you feel better.
- A Telemedicine Consult is included!! That night or later that week. No hurries.
THE INBODY 570 BODY COMPOSITION EXAM
EXAM NUMBER ONE OF TWO
What are the dangers of visceral fat?
Visceral Fat: This type of fat, more common in men, is found deeper inside your stomach, under your abdominal muscles and around your vital organs. This dangerous type of fat has been linked to heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, certain cancers and stroke. Too much of any body fat is bad for your health. But compared to the fat that lies just underneath your skin (subcutaneous fat), the visceral kind is more likely to raise your risk for serious medical issues.
THE DANGERS OF VISCERAL FAT
Subcutaneous Fat: This type of fat lies just below the skin and is quite noticeable. It tends to jiggle, have dimples and cellulite. Subcutaneous fat can actually improve glucose metabolism and communicate with your organs to elicit beneficial effects.
Visceral Fat: This type of fat, more common in men, is found deeper inside your stomach, under your abdominal muscles and around your vital organs. This dangerous type of fat has been linked to heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, certain cancers and stroke.
Visceral fat is dangerous because it is related to the release of proteins and hormones that can cause inflammation. This inflammation can damage your arteries, enter your liver and negatively affect how your body breaks down sugars and fats. The proximity of the visceral fat to your liver is important as it can boost production of bad cholesterol. As time goes by, plaque becomes inflamed which in turn narrows your arteries due to swelling. These narrow passageways increase your blood pressure, strain the heart and increase your risk of blood clots.
What causes Visceral Fat? Your genetic makeup can have something to do with the amount of visceral fat you carry, although this only plays a small part. Your diet and activity level have a much deeper impact on your level of visceral fat. If you do not exercise and consume excessive empty calories you may be at a higher risk!
What is extracellular water?
Extracellular water is body water that is not inside the cells. Water found inside the cells is called “intracellular water.” Add the water inside the cells and the water outside the cells, and you get your “total body water.”
Why should you pay attention to extracellular water?
An increase in extracellular water (or the water outside your cells) can cause excess weight and swelling in your limbs. It can be an early sign of an imbalance in your body. Such imbalances may include hormone, protein, sodium, potassium, magnesium and pH. As a result of these imbalances, you can develop hypertension, decreased mental alertness, nausea, dizziness, headaches, fatigue and shortness of breath.
Is there any relationship between extracellular water and body fat?
Yes. Researchers believe that increased extracellular water is a key element in increased body fat. This is because an increase in body fat is accompanied by an increase in extracellular water as well. In other words, body fat lacks adequate amounts of intracellular water.
How do you achieve optimal extracellular water?
Be proactive about your health and take steps to ensure that your organs are functioning optimally. Certain routine lab tests can generally identify an organ that is not functioning at its best. A balanced diet and regular physical activity also helps.
