Making Health Addictive: Employ Subliminal Messaging

Making Health Addictive:  Employ Subliminal Messaging | Preventive Medicine | Scoop.it
Since I gave a keynote at the 2013 Connected Health Symposium called “Making Health Addictive,” I’ve been posting on this topic in order to explain some of the concepts in more detail and to get yo...
ClickTell Consulting's insight:

Blended delicately, neuroscience, marketing and advertising can produce the sweetest pill that preventive care of today could wish for.

A while back at ClickTell Consulting we coined the term “Counterising”, for counteracting advertising. This came about as a result of trying to formulate an effective evidence-based model to encourage a healthy lifestyle in the field of chronic disorders.

Needless to say implemented properly insight of this nature offers a tremendously healthy ROI. Why else would companies such Coca-Cola & McDonalds spend as much money as they do in successfully trying to encourage us to buy into their message and product?

Sepe Sehati,

Researchers shed light on how diet influences cancer development

Researchers shed light on how diet influences cancer development | Preventive Medicine | Scoop.it
The results of the study - published in the journal Cell Metabolism - revealed that conversion from a low- to high-calorie diet appeared to reduce tumor growth when the high-calorie diet was adopted before tumors started to grow. If the switch from a low- to high-calorie diet took place after tumor growth began, it boosted their growth further.

Majority of weight loss occurs 'via breathing'

Majority of weight loss occurs 'via breathing' | Preventive Medicine | Scoop.it
The results suggest that the lungs are the main excretory organ for weight loss, with the H20 produced by oxidation departing the body in urine, feces, breath and other bodily fluids.
ClickTell Consulting's insight:

The results suggest that the lungs are the main excretory organ for weight loss, with the H20 produced by oxidation departing the body in urine, feces, breath and other bodily fluids.


Although the findings of the paper may alter how weight loss is understood, strategies for losing weight should remain unchanged. Eating less and moving more is a surefire way to combat the overindulgences of the festive season.
