Pronounced vy-TEV-itee, I came up with this blended word back in 2004 when I was first launching The Wellness Scoop. It means vitality and longevity. In my own journey towards optimal health, as well as through my observations of others who struggle with health issues on a regular basis, I have come to realize that one is of no use without the other. Too many people are living too many years beyond what their bodies and minds are able to handle. And much too often, others have their lives cut short by the seemingly sudden onset of a cardiac event or fatal disease.

Knowing that most of today’s health conditions and diseases are degenerative and take many decades to silently develop, I believe it is possible for everyone to attain vitevity, by leading a healthy and holistic lifestyle. But in today’s world of information overload, the trick is figuring out just what that means. It can be challenging to sift through the plethora of articles, studies, and other information available on this vast topic. Believe me I know! I’ve been there, and I am still there…. constantly reading, researching, studying, learning. Let me save you a lot of time and energy, and help you make sense of it all.
