The Health Performance Institute (HPI)
What we do
We work with companies, both large and small, to help their employees reduce the number of prescription medications they take.
It’s not just any of the medications they take, it is those for three (or four) of the main chronic conditions. The ones that never go away. The ones that seem to get more expensive and taken by more employees each year.
How we do it
We implement The Academy, an educational program focused on food, sleep, stress and exercise.
We know what you are thinking: “Great, another run-of-the-mill wellness program.”
Nope, not even close!
Here are a couple of (many possible) examples that set us apart:
First, we start all of our programs by focusing on How and Why the body gets hungry. We have found no other program that does this, probably because they don’t understand it. From there, everything we teach regarding food focuses on hunger and improving health.
And you know what? You can eat great-tasting food this way!
A second example: We don’t think jogging is an appropriate activity for most people.
We cover the reasons for this in our module on exercise.
More on The Academy
There are 12 modules – see image below.
When we implement The Academy within your company, we can deliver these modules to your employees in any number of ways, including in-person, online via webinars or some combination of the two.
With our teaching and recommendations focused on hunger from the beginning, we get quick and impressive results. The image below shows a summary of these results from participants 1-month into The Academy.
Note how after being in the program for one month, 84% are less hungry and 85% have more energy! The less hungry part is key. When people are less hungry, they consume fewer calories. This leads to weight loss. When combined, all of this leads to improved health and a decreasing need for reliance on prescription medication.
