What is the Gestalt Effect at XY Wellness?

February 24, 2021

The ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle once said, ” the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” This quote implies that there is synergy amongst components of a system, or a Gestalt effect.

The Gestalt effect of the XY Wellness program reinforces the idea that there is a beneficial compounding effect to applying every element of our lifestyle system.
The notion that there is no one component more important than the other for health and longevity after prostate cancer is our company’s backbone.

For nearly two decades, I’ve clinically compared why some patients do better than others after prostate cancer. It is now evident that those who continue a whole lifestyle plan do better than patients who choose one or two components and ignore the rest.

Some do well-consuming supplements and eating clean foods , for example, but struggle to exercise consistently and get adequate sleep.

Others erroneously believe that they can out-exercise a poor diet and struggle to follow good, clean eating habits.

Or some may often miss their nighttime dose of important nutraceutical supplements.

The fact remains that the more all the XY Wellness health plan elements are practiced, the better the outcome.

Now, I know it’s not always easy. Life gets in the way at times. But that is often the exception, not the rule.

Perfection is unnecessary to rebuild and renew your body – consistency, mindfulness, and persistence is.

The application of the Gestalt effect to your health includes exercise, diet, sleep , and nutraceuticals. One element synergistically reinforces the other.

Your morning exercise will improve your sleep at night. When sleep is optimal, there are fewer cravings for simple carbs. When taking good anti-inflammatory nutritional supplements, there is less pain – with less pain, physical exercise is more enjoyable. And so on.

Stay the course. Living longer and renewing your health makes it worth the effort. We at XY Wellness are cheering you on!
