Healthy Dimensions : A Nurse's Mind/Body Weight Loss Solution

About Msn Elizabeth M Wright Rn
Elizabeth Wright holds a Master's Degree in Nursing from Case Western Reserve University. She is the founder of the Healthy Dimensions program and has both personal and professional experience in the area of weight loss. After a lifetime of yo-yo dieting and rapid regain, she applied her advanced practice nursing skills and became a student of the latest research on weight loss and health, she knew there had to be a better way. At the age of 50, weighing 200 pounds she had sleep apnea, elevated fasting blood glucose, chronic joint pain and GERD. By applying the principles and techniques that she uncovered in her research, she lost 50# and has maintained a normal weight for 4 years. All of her health problems have been eliminated. Through exploring research studies from human biology, endocrinology, psychology and neuroscience, she found key evidence-based principles that can act synergistically for reliable, permanent weight loss. These tools have also been shown to enhance overall health and life satisfaction. After realizing how well this mind/body approach worked, she drew upon her research and education experience to develop a process that guides individuals to find their own best nutrition and lifestyle plan. One that works, is easy to live with and provides a foundation of free ongoing support that is so critical to success. Elizabeth has spoken about this research at professional conferences in the Midwest related to the topic of metabolic syndrome. As a nurse, she understands the holistic approach that is necessary for long-term success, and that permanent weight loss requires healing of both the mind and body. With a profound desire to help other people, she feels there is an important message to be shared about using the best evidence and a holistic perspective in weight loss efforts. She believes that obesity is a multi-dimensional problem and so the cure must be as well. Her passionate goal is that many people will achieve high levels of health as a result of their participation in the Healthy Dimensions program. With the program's focus on evidence, dynamic presentation style and engaging workshop activities, Elizabeth's Healthy Dimensions program provides a long-awaited alternative to mainstream commercial weight loss options.
