Our lifestyles affect many chronic diseases. In order to help everyone to change their habits in the long term and to age in the best possible conditions, the Fontalvie Group opened in September 2014 in Montpellier R-Revolution Santé a pilot Health Optimization center based on a concept of 4P medicine: preventive medicine (it influences lifestyle), participative (everyone becomes an actor in their own health), personalized (each being is different) and predictive (which takes into account genetic potential).

In France, according to the survey by the Think for Great Place to Work institute published on 7 January 2015 (2)Nearly one employee in two (48%) says he is confronted with situations of burn-out or at very high levels of stress for himself or for loved ones".

At a time when some thirty members of parliament want to include burnout in the list of occupational diseases, the R-Revolution Santé pilot centre in Montpellier, which specialises in health prevention, is already providing answers to this disease of civilisation, which involves a triple suffering: intellectual, emotional and physical.

Based on group dynamics, practical and pragmatic workshops, led by health professionals, these courses help to find a satisfactory life balance.

In theory, it may seem obvious to take care of oneself, but in a tense economic context, these good resolutions are increasingly falling by the wayside. Caught up in their "To do list", many assets are no longer able to disconnect and make sense of things. Symptoms may appear: anxiety, insomnia, loss of energy, difficulty concentrating ... R-Health Revolution strives to provide personalized solutions.
Workshops and discussions led by professionals specializing in the treatment of burn-out (doctors, psychologists...) allow everyone to see more clearly and then put into practice the advice of specialists in the field.
Physical activity to relieve tension, relaxing and detoxifying treatments in our institute to learn how to relax, healthy food menus with foods specifically selected for their "anti-stress" virtues are available to trainees. Supervised and coached by doctors, nutritionists, physical activity teachers, physiotherapists, massage therapists, and by professionals in the field of well-being and relaxation: a tailor-made programme and a personalised follow-up are determined with each participant.
The comprehensive approach allows everyone to identify the risks of burnout and to conduct a lifestyle assessment to prevent the symptoms of burn-out and avoid the gears that lead to depression.

Doctor Desplan, founder of the concept, insists on the essential notion of pleasure: "Patients are more likely to make lifestyle changes if there is an immediate benefit. » Desplan is not at its trial run in terms of health innovation. Twenty years ago, with his Fontalvie group, he revolutionized pneumology by rehabilitating physical exercise for people with respiratory insufficiencies. The Fontalvie group was contacted by several cities in France that are closely interested in the concept. In addition, a major Fontalvie Group centre is due to be opened in Marrakech at the beginning of 2015.
