Hello, I'm Dr. Cedrick Batchateu, CEO of Cedrick Wellness Resources. I’m the creator of the Self-Care 7 protocol, host of the Self-Care Forum Podcast, and of course, author of Self-Care Advocate: 7 Steps to Prevent Chronic Disease. I am a graduate of Albany College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences, and for the last 9 years, I have been speaking and teaching on chronic disease prevention.
WHY SELF-CARE ADVOCATE?
In 2020 alone, U.S. healthcare spending reached $4.1 trillion or about $12,530 per person - this amounts to about 18.5% of GDP. For all that spending, in America today; 6 in 10 adults have a chronic disease, 4 in 10 have 2 or more chronic conditions, while 7 in 10 deaths each year are due to chronic diseases. The growing prevalence of chronic disease threatens to overwhelm the U.S. healthcare system. We face an epidemic of high blood pressure, obesity, heart disease, diabetes, COPD, kidney disease, and acid reflux. In its current form, our system is unable to stop this growing trend. The impact is felt in blood, sweat, and dollars. While the average person suffers in silence, self-care advocates proactively work to prevent chronic conditions and reduce their risk factors.
In 2013, I obtained my Doctorate degree from Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences.
In 2014, I began teaching health and wellness seminars at my local church. This later expanded to the other congregations of the churches of Christ. My work was largely inspired by all the people I would see struggle with chronic disease at the church. It was my way of helping, by sharing knowledge I thought would help them.
In 2015, I created my YouTube channel. There I would post videos from my seminars and lectures for the world to see.
In 2018, I created a 7-step protocol to help people restore, renew, and rebuild their health; we call it the Self-Care 7. This 7-step protocol puts the power of of a trainer, wellness coach, and nutritionist in your hands. I use the Self-Care 7 to help people adopt holistic habits that will rebuild their health in 49 days.
In 2022, I wrote and published my very first book, it is called Self-Care Advocate: 7 Steps to Prevent Chronic Disease. It is available in paperback, eBook, and audiobook. Get this book and become a self-care advocate by implementing our Self-Care 7 protocol. You too can experience health and vitality the way you were meant to. Don't just survive, thrive!
In 2023, I plan to launch my Self-Care Advocate course, which are self-paced lessons to help anyone overcome chronic disease and rebuild their health. I will also launch a subscription business called Genesis +. Subscribers will have access to our coaching app called AmVie, a series of video lectures from our Self-Care Academy, free digital copy of my book, invitations to our private Facebook group, as well as to our Self-Care Forum podcast.
