Foundational Approach to Wellness
You’re Not Broken, Our Society Is
We live in a society that’s obsessed with appearance. Unfortunately, this does not mean we are knowledgeable about health, especially when it comes to science and empirical evidence.
You may or may not know that the diet industry rakes in roughly $71 billion dollars every year. To give you some perspective on how much money that is, if you were to stack $71 billion worth of $100 bills, the resulting height would be over 44 miles tall.
That’s a lot of money! That’s also a lot of incentive to push products and “solutions” into the market that don’t actually work—at least not for the long term.
This industry survives (and grows each year) because it spends its marketing dollars convincing us that new products or solutions work. When it doesn’t, or we gain the weight back, it’s “our fault.”
I’m sharing the Foundational Approach to Wellness Email Series to help people gain the power, knowledge, and resources they need to boost their health literacy and stop falling prey to an industry that doesn’t have their best interest at heart.
Meet Nequita Dowling, MD, the Facilitator of the Foundational Approach to Wellness Email Series
Wellness is not just management of disease, but rather it involves a balance of the mind, body and spirit with nutrition, exercise, and mental wholeness. N2U Nutrition and Wellness combines Family Medicine and Functional Medicine to help people achieve their wellness goal. I am excited! The practice is a vision that came about out of a need to be better—a better physician who seeks to prevent disease and treat the cause…. a better person to myself by slowing down my pace to improve my own health and longevity… a better daughter, sister, and mother because I am present. Let's work together for a better you!

Empower Yourself With Knowledge About Your Body and Mind
My goal for this email series is to provide you with the information you need to make informed decisions about your personal health and wellness needs so that you can become your own advocate and make the necessary changes to start living your best life.
We live in a society that values productivity over rest, where studies show that less than 30% of people max out their paid vacation days (https://bit.ly/3puNbPE), and we’ve only just begun openly discussing the impact of mental health issues like anxiety and depression.
These norms we’ve become accustomed to are harmful to our health, and it’s time to start making small shifts to give our bodies the fuel, care, and rest that they need while giving ourselves healthy solutions.
Ready to start shifting the way you think about health?
