Meliora wellbeing is an interdisciplinary, multimodality approach to wellbeing. Meaning the more SME (subject matter experts) all working towards defining and overlapping strategies towards wellbeing, is a solid foundation for you to learn on your health literacy journey.
Being SME, we witnessed the gap between our expertise and the need to have overlapping knowledge and content in other disciplines. Working collaboratively leads to overlapping strategies, thus higher impact of change, outcomes, adaptations and knowledge for you.
There are millions of SME out on the internet. There is no place that has the structure and implementation covered by Meliora.
Meliora Wellbeing is an organic and evolving initiative in a soft launch and building the required behind-the-scenes support, database, and systems to make this the “leader” in health literacy. A goal we hope to achieve in the coming years. Join us on this journey.

Embrace the ColdCourse
The suggestion of getting into cool water sounds uncomfortable - but it doesn't need to be. Our bodies are smart and can handle short periods in cold environments - but we don't do this often enough to find comfort with it. Learn how to with us.
Meliora Wise CommunityCommunity
A place where we can explore together, ask questions, learn from others and support each other. We all know, when we build community and have places to turn to, we have greater success.
I recommend functional breathing; for me, it helped with anxiety, sinus congestion, and sleep apnea.
B (A Reformed Skeptic)
I am so grateful for learning functional breathing from Ber. Learning to breathe through my nose and use the other functional breathing tools has made a huge difference both to my sleep quality and when I am uncomfortable (whether physically or due to stress). My sinus congestion is much better, and I now know that just shifting the way I am breathing helps to clear my sinuses when they need it.
I have mild sleep apnea, and my sleep quality was better within a few days once I learned nose breathing. It’s simple and has been so helpful for me. I am glad that I kept going past my initial skepticism (I wondered how something so simple could make a difference?). I recommend functional breathing; for me, it helped with anxiety, sinus congestion, and sleep apnea. I’m glad I took a little bit of time it took to understand and start using these tools.
Helped my 9 year old with severe anxiety
KS (Edited For Confidentiality)
My 9-year-old has severe anxiety about anything healthcare-related, and needles are a big trigger. I brought her in shaking and breathing very fast.
When we got to the nurses’ station Ber was the nurse and she was beyond amazing with her. She was so patient and did not rush us. She did a breathing technique with her and was able to calm her down. In the end, my daughter was so proud of herself. It was helpful for her to have such a patient and understanding nurse.
Ber taught me new ways to manage my pain
I was a nurse for 40 years and thought I knew it all. While recovering from surgery I met Ber. After talking and being asked all the good nursing questions about my pain, Ber had a different perspective on what I was experiencing.
Ber taught me new ways to manage my pain. She explained why I was having that particular discomfort and what to do about it. To my surprise, the discomfort was relieved almost instantly. I was amazed by what she knew and how to apply it in the nursing setting without the use of any medication.
You were able to break down the process and gave me many strategies where it all made sense
I was so nervous coming in, I did not want to go and felt out of my element. I was almost certain I was not going to come back. Then I met you, Ber, you were so warm and welcoming which made me feel comfortable. I could see how you were able to meet others where they were at, and effortlessly related to them on their level.
For me, you were able to break down the process and gave me many strategies where it all made sense. I can see your passion and skill for teaching.
I came in anxious wanting to leave and I left ready to come back, all because of you Ber.

What is Meliora Wellbeing?
Wellbeing is more than health and wellness. It is flourishing wellbeing for self, family, social network and community. The more of us who flourish, the more others around us flourish, which equals a positive community change cycle.
Melior Wellbeing focuses on Health Literacy, the ability to understand and use health related information, services, and science to make appropriate health decisions. This includes understanding when, where, why, how, and what is important, and when to apply it.
This is not your typical health literacy content at Melior. We look at epigenetics, allostatic load, hormesis, change theory, functional breathing, cold exposure, biomechanics, facia, interoception, trauma responses, stress management, ancestral health and much much more!

What is breathwork and functional breathing?
Think of breathwork as a fitness class for breathing. You can have a calming recovery class or a hard workout - all with your breath.
Before a person gets into intense breath work, it is important to be good at the recovery of one’s breath and how to down-regulate. Once this is mastered, breath work can be as creative and unique as fitness classes are diverse.
Breath work can be integrated into many other modalities aimed at health and wellbeing to compound the effects.Functional breathing, think of it as how "fit" your breathing capabilities are, and how responsive your breath is to tasks you require of it. In these tasks are you short of breath, uncomfortable and taking a long time to recover? Or is your breath quiet and controlled in highly demanding situations?
What is stress managment?
At Meliora we approach stress management unique. The goal of stress management is overcoming our physical stress response and stress triggers. This could be emotionally driven, caused by pain, situational, social, financial, systemic, or environmental stressors..
There are common strategies to address the stress response. At Meliora our goal is to teach a department store worth of inventory of stress management tools, and a place where you go to build your stress management toolbox of strategies. Each tool has its own purpose, depending on the situation. The more tools you have, the more skill you have at using each tool, then you become your own craftsman of stress management It is at this point where your wellbeing and health journey are positively impacted.
