Information for Military Organizations

  • Are you continually looking for scientifically proven methods that will help boost the happiness and health of your cadre?
  • Are you concerned about finding better and more effective ways to serve your personnel’s needs and assure optimal health in this era of ever-increasing health care costs?
  • Would you like to offer your personnel self-administered smoking cessation and tools that involve no participation from your end? Or convenient and effective methods to lose weight, control cholesterol and control hypertension?

If you've answered yes to the above questions, then you've come to the right place. Our smoking cessation product - QuitKey , weight loss Product - DietMate, and sleep aid - SleepKey can help your personnel maintain healthy, happy and productive lives.

Healthcare costs are continuing to soar. Recent statistics show that cigarette smoking has a significant impact on rising health care costs and the overall health of your staff. Although the extra costs of employing smokers may be obvious, economists' estimates range from at least $600 up to $4600 per year for each smoker. In addition, at any one time, 65% of the adult population in the United States is on some type of diet, and another 15% should consider starting one! A great majority will lose weight only to regain it a few months later. Now you can provide your personnel with a safe, effective and a scientifically proven way to end their smoking habit, lose weight and stay healthy.

For over 15 years, QuitKey , DietMate, and SleepKey have been successful in military installations. QuitKey’s unique features such as its small size, portability, drug-free and self-help nature make it ideal for use by members of the army, navy and the air force. DietMate also has these features, which makes it an ideal tool to help military personnel lose weight, maintain cholesterol and control hypertension.
