Healthy is Not Something You Are, Healthy is Something You Do

Our Story

At Healthy Is Wellness, we believe that a holistic, integrated approach to nutrition and medicine is the best way to improve both the quality and quantity of life. But that approach can be challenging for a number of reasons. There is a vast amount of information out there, and some of it can be confusing, hard to interpret or downright contradictory. Often this ambiguity hurts the very thing it is supposed to help – your health.

That’s why we created Healthy Is Wellness. We wanted to provide companies and their employees with a convenient, informative and consultative way to understand their current health state, while making it easy to implement practical steps to help individuals take control of their health.

Our program grew out of the founder’s zeal for a deep understanding of the non-linear, dynamic systems that make up the human body. With that enthusiasm, combined with the latest scientific research and cutting-edge technology, Dr. Nich Pertuit founded Healthy Is Wellness with the primary goal of helping everyone we work with to “get well!”

Our Values & Beliefs

Individuals should be empowered to take control of their health – and therefore, their lives.

A person who has their health has many different goals. A person who does not have their health has a single goal – get well. We are committed to helping put participants back in charge of their personal health.

The underlying principles of health need to be as feasible and easy to understand as possible.

We work hard to make sure participants understand the “why” behind the “what” without confusing technical jargon. We make sure participants have the knowledge they need, in a way they understand, to make meaningful changes in their lives.

There is no “One Size Fits All” approach to health, but there are successful strategies that anyone can use.

We know that just because something works for one person does not mean that it will work for another. We provide scientifically-backed plans that increase the likelihood of improving objective and subjective health behaviors in program participants.
