Bragg's Tips for Healthy Living
Patricia Bragg ND, PhD, is a dynamic speaker and a living, energetic symbol of the healthy lifestyle she teaches. The daughter of a healthy living crusader, her mission is to continue and spread the message of health through natural nutrition. The legendary Bragg family advocates a simple “You are what you eat, drink, breathe, think, say and do” motto.
Patricia’s passion for healthy living comes from her father, Dr. Paul C. Bragg, who opened America’s first Health Food Store in 1912. After surviving the ravages of tuberculosis as a teenager and rebuilding his body, he dedicated his life to showing others the way to vibrant health and wellness. Known as the Father of America’s Health Movement, Dr. Paul C. Bragg pioneered healthy living throughout the 20th century through his promotion of the benefits of purified water, juices, herbal teas and organic foods in the U.S. market. He also kept a steady message to his followers by pioneering Health Radio in the 1920s, with a program that ran three times daily and later a television health show called “Health and Happiness.” It was a five-day-a- week, half-hour show comprised of exercise time, health recipes and visual demonstrations. The show also featured a guest time where famous people shared their health and happiness secrets with the viewers.
Patricia now continues the legacy of the Bragg Health Crusade that her father started over 100 years ago by tirelessly sharing the precepts her father developed though a series of health and fitness seminars for Women’s, Men’s, Youth and Church Groups throughout the world. She has won international acclaim for her teachings in the health field and has toured the world over 13 times, spreading physical and spiritual health through lectures and thousands of radio, television, and print interviews.
Patricia Bragg has been the health consultant to some of Hollywood’s biggest stars, including A-list actors Clint Eastwood and Tom Hanks. Visionary entrepreneur Steve Jobs, pop star Katy Perry and health and fitness guru Jack LaLanne have also relied on Patricia’s health and nutrition expertise.
Patricia’s library of inspiring self-health books have renewed, rejuvenated, and revitalized the lives of millions worldwide by supporting a change with self-improvement. Her best-selling book, Apple Cider Vinegar-Miracle Health System, has sold in excess of nine million copies to date.
Bragg Live Food Products turned 100 years old in 2012! What started as a small health store in Los Angeles has become a leading international health products company. Over the last 103 years, Bragg has produced more than 365 different products – “one for each day of the year,” says Patricia Bragg.
Today, Bragg has refined that number to over 20 different signature health food products and 10 self-health books. They remain bestsellers, are used by millions around the world, and have been featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show, Dr. Oz and Anderson Cooper.
Patricia’s signature products include Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vinegar & Honey blend, 7 All Natural Drinks; Bragg Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil; Bragg Liquid Aminos; three different Bragg Organic Seasonings; and six different Salad Dressings and Marinades. All the Bragg products provide many internal and external health benefits & have been recognized as the best in the industry.
The Bragg Vision for the future is exciting! Continuing on the Bragg Legacy and Crusade, Bragg Live Food Products is developing a one hundred twenty-acre organic farm on the outskirts of Santa Barbara, California. The property is in the process of being modeled into an incredible Organic Teaching Farm & Center, called the Bragg Health Institute, with facilities to both educate and instruct the values of growing and eating organics.
The Bragg Health Institute was inspired in part by an educational program called “Bring a Farmer to School,” in which Dr. Patricia Bragg, Dr. John Westerdahl, Bragg Director of Health Science, and Bragg’s Organic Farmer were invited to speak to children at the local elementary schools. The focus of the education outreach is to teach children about the importance of eating more organic fruits and vegetables, and how organic farming plays an important role in environmentally – friendly, healthy plant foods. Last year the Bragg Health Institute donated thousands of organic apples to the local school districts which were grown on the Bragg Organic Farm.
