Our History 2008 Dr. A. Launches the Revolutionary Habits of Health® Transformational System

With Dr. A’s Habits of Health Transformational System, Clients learn to create healthy habits through small, daily changes called microHabits – often starting with achieving a healthy weight and focusing on healthy eating. It isn’t only about the food you eat, though. The program also addresses hydration, exercise, sleep, mindfulness and surroundings – with the goal of healthy habit creation in all areas of life.

Our History 2017 Introducing, OPTAVIA

There are three fundamental truths that we believe to be true: People are more successful in their health journey when they (1) have help from a Coach, (2) have the support of a Community and (3) incorporate healthy habits into their lives. These insights brought about the evolution of our brand and how we support people in their journey, now exclusively through the OPTAVIA integrated Coach model.
