The mission of Uriel’s Prevention & Performance division is to promote health and wellness by supporting preventative health initiatives.
Prevention is the true key to health. Our true focus should be on maximizing our performance by promoting wellness rather than solely fighting disease. Health is the natural state of the body and mind. Sickness and disease are a result of our bodies’ inability to adapt to the compounding effects of physical, environmental, and emotional stress on our body. The goal of prevention is to support and enhance our body and mind’s inherent self-healing and regulating capabilities. When maximizing our performance through exercise, diet, and making safe life decisions to minimize our risk for disease, we are providing the essential ingredients to achieve and maintain the physiologic state known as “health.”
