In 2002, The Wellness Revolution was the "shot heard round the world" for the wellness industry. It defined wellness as an industry—linking tens of thousands of disparate service and product suppliers with a single cause. It showed scientists, fitness providers, businesspeople, food manufacturers, doctors, and others focused on disease prevention and anti-aging that they were part of a worldwide revolution—rather than merely lone iconoclasts inside their chosen professions or industries.
Five years ago, in The Wellness Revolution, economist Paul Zane Pilzer outlined an emerging $200 billion industry he called "wellness." Today, as fully explained in The New Wellness Revolution, that industry has grown to $500 billion, and it's just getting started, offering even greater entrepreneurial opportunities.
The Wellness Revolution Hall of Fame honors those wellness revolutionaries who have made significant contributions to wellness—changing our world for the better one person or patient at a time. The members of the Hall of Fame have helped tens of millions of people lead happier, healthier and longer lives. Their contributions and accomplishments serve as an inspirtation to future generations. Vive La Revolution!
