RALEIGH, NC, December 14, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Vital Plan, a physician-founded wellness company, has just announced its first corporate wellness partnership with Brooks Bell and affiliate partner HUB Raleigh.
The Vital Plan wellness program is a comprehensive, preventative approach to providing employees with guidance and tools to make healthy long-term, lifestyle changes. While many businesses offer gym memberships or infrequent exercise and health management programs, Vital Plan works with employees to provide base-line health measurements, set goals and offer ongoing support and tools to achieve those goals.
Beyond diet and exercise, Vital Plan addresses stress management, sleep quality, toxin exposure, healthy relationships, and boosting the immune system to reduce sick days. Vital Plan also offers a book on concepts of wellness, health restoration programs, specific protocols written by physicians, and a full line of top-quality supplements.
Brooks Bell's goals with the wellness program are to:
- Maximize productivity
- Decrease absenteeism
- Attract and retain top talent

- Exclusive 25% discount on Vital Plan supplements and programs

Our team works extremely hard and I am pleased to offer this resource to allow them to optimize their health and effectively balance the competing demands of work and life." -Brooks Bell, Founder and CEO of Brooks Bell
"The Vital Plan concepts were intriguing to me because of the preventative approach paired with resources for health restoration. I personally found the health panel and individual consultation with the physician to be extremely helpful. I look forward to participating in the Revitalize program in January and serving as an example to our team by positively changing my own health habits." -Robb Czyzewski, COO and CFO of Brooks Bell
"After attending the TBJ "Healthiest Company in the Triangle" Awards last week, we are excited by the tremendous energy that is developing around corporate wellness.

About Vital Plan
The Vital Plan was founded in 2006 by William Rawls, MD, FACOG, in his medical practice in Morehead City, North Carolina. Dr. Rawls set out to create the plan as a way to provide his patients with a resource that would allow them to restore normal health and achieve a higher quality of life. He was also seeking answers for his own health struggle with chronic disease, which prompted a great deal of his research on nutraceutical therapies. Dr. Rawls' book and protocols were so well received that the word spread quickly. The Vital Plan has now blossomed into a network of healthcare providers who are passionate about offering top-quality wellness resources to their patients. In 2011, The Vital Plan was pleased to launch a signature line of therapeutically-dosed, high-quality supplements formulated by our team of practicing physicians. In 2012, Vital Plan announced its first corporate partnership.
