Are you ready for a rEvolution?
We've got a few problems. Let's take healthcare, for starters.
And what about society?
It's time to save the world.
It turns out, the answers to ALL these problems actually have something in common. And the solutions are simpler than we could have imagined; we've just been looking in the wrong places. So in a radical effort to begin with the end in mind, our mission includes no less than the following:
These may sound like unusually lofty goals, but not only are we that confident, this long-range perspective also helps to ensure that every step we take along the way is leading us in the right direction.
What We Do
rEvolutionary Wellness begins with rEvolutionary education. Our approach is the synthesis of several groundbreaking, evolutionary biology-based physical and mental health principles, which together provide the first truly comprehensive model for preventative human healthcare. This is NOT your average health advice.
We have two major obstacles to overcome: first, that our messages contradict much of what is considered "common knowledge" about human health (and in some cases religious beliefs); and second, that discrepancies between "common knowledge" and many scientific findings, along with the magnitude of human variation and adaptability, have produced so much conflicting information that the general public is resistant to hearing yet another new opinion. We have our work cut out for us to change people's minds under these circumstances.
In the short term (1-3 years), we will focus on creating community and education, addressing both consumers and health professionals. In the longer term (3-5 years), in addition to healthcare, we will be seeking to influence public policy and political leaders by demonstrating the incredible relevance our humanist perspective has in improving communication and cooperation among individuals, groups, and nations. This will be one of the most important stepping stones to achieving world peace and unlocking our full human potential.
Small Changes, Big Results
Our greatest contention at rEvolutionary Wellness is that the single, critical key to achieving all of the above goals is to change the models by which we understand the human body and brain ‒ namely, to models based on principles of evolutionary biology. While there is value in celebrating our differences, in order to take the next steps forward, our greatest gains in healthcare, cooperation, and progress will result from focusing on and appreciating the extent of our biological and neurological commonalities.
These seemingly simple shifts in models actually entail quite a profound change, and in fact lead us for the first time to a truly comprehensive, preventative (not to mention cost-effective) way of approaching healthcare. It also provides the first completely non-discriminatory perspective through which to view our fellow human beings, and has tremendously positive implications for our ability to succeed in all our individual and collective human endeavors.
We don't expect our goals will be achieved overnight. In fact, it's not certain that they ever will be achieved. But we believe that the greater measure of success and meaningful effort is to ensure that we are continually forging ahead in the right direction: that the journey is calibrated by the destination.
