Renowned Naturopath & Wellness Expert Dr. James Rouse in Manila

Renowned naturopath, awarded author, and functional medicine expert Dr. James Rouse shared practical life strategies and insights at the 2016 Healthy Options Talks dubbed “Vitamins of Life: Think, Eat, Move, Thrive.” The empowering talk that inspired the audience to take the steps to lead vibrantly healthy lives unfolded on October 18, 2016 at the country’s most luxurious hotel, Shangri-La Fort, in cooperation with world-class gym, Kerry Sports Manila.

The wellness event was organized by Healthy Options, the Philippines’ leading natural products retail store chain. The retailer’s premium quality products perfectly match the “Live Inspired,” and “Live Healthy” mantras of the charismatic lifestyle and wellness expert. Dr. Rouse was joined by the Vitamer Laboratories team from the US namely Director of Sales Marc Elliot, VP of Sales Jane Drinkwalter, and Regional Account Manager Kristen Purcell.

Dr. Rouse encouraged audiences to nurture their bodies and minds with self-care, positive thinking, healthy eating, and regular exercise. It all begins with shedding excuses, pushing possibilities, and going beyond self- imposed limits.

The talk delved on some of the key principles of the Think Eat Move Thrive (TEMT) Program encapsulated in the book that Dr. Rouse co-wrote with his wife Dr. Debra Rouse, also a naturopathic doctor. Titled “Think Eat Move Thrive – The Practice for an Awesome Life,” the book is complete with practices, recipes, and exercises. TEMT is a proven, life-changing program for optimum wellness and longevity. The principles include:

·         Forgetting the fad diets. The integration of mindfulness, eating with intention, and interval-based movement will help people live inspired, healthier, and longer life.

·         The Think Eat Move Thrive program is based on science-supported medicine and healthy living research. Flexible enough to be personalized for any lifestyle, the program is easy to apply to everyday living. When we identify the source of our attitudes and redefine our intentions, we can actively move toward realizing our goals.

·         The TEMT prescription can help people claim the life they have always wanted.

Dr. Rouse and his wife have long been motivating people to take charge of their health and discover their innate healing capability. They do not merely speak about wellness, but also live healthy, energetic lives. They make sure to spend time nurturing friendships, enjoying family moments with their two daughters, exercising, and eating quality food despite being busy doctors and entrepreneurs.

Making simple lifestyle shifts, Dr. Rouse noted, can diminish the impact of everyday toxins and keep the body in balance. “It is never too late to create, or recreate, the life of your dreams,” Dr. Rouse said.

The “Vitamins of Life” talk followed a meditation session as well as a yoga and spinning class for attendees at Kerry Sports Manila. A book signing session capped off the event after the live seminar.
