Asked to comment on Zwell’s holistic approach to wellness, The Four Pillars of Zwellness, Dr. Laux responded -
“Health is a natural recipe created from love in your heart blended with smart lifestyle choices and consistent daily habits.
“Nature’s gifts of fresh water, clean air, and real foods appear perhaps too simple, yet they are demandingly essential and absolutely critical. Accept no substitutes as there are none as far as your health is concerned!
“Sleep is not an option, as it singularly renews supreme. Go ahead, try not to breath, or eat, or sleep. You command health by following nature’s lead!
"Exercise is natures’ anti-aging elixir extraordinaire, so use it or lose it. It’s your choice, so make the best one for health at every age.
“It has been said that all disease is curable, just not every person. By giving nature a helping hand, all things are possible. 'The surgeon cuts, the physician sutures, but it is Nature alone that heals’ ”
