The Wellness Way Approach to Inflammation 12.12.18 at 6:00

What’s stopping you from being the healthiest you?  Find out how on 12/12/18 at 6:00

Even if you’re eating a strictly healthy diet, you may still be causing inflammation in your gut, which can cause a multitude of illnesses, resulting in low energy, weight gain or a multitude of other physical and mental health problems.

But here’s the secret: you won’t know what’s causing inflammation until you get answers. And the kicker? Different foods cause inflammation for different people. So what’s holding you back from learning your body’s blueprint?

If you give us an hour of your time, we will revolutionize the way you look at illness (hint: are you in control of your health?) and your health in general. We’ll also share with you what Responsible Health Care is and how you can actually SAVE money by practicing it..Spread the word, invite your friends and start the New Year off with a new and healthier you!

Vision loss has been linked to difficulties with daily living activities, high blood pressure, heart disease, strokes, falls, and depression. People frequently equate loss of visual function to old age and assume that nothing can be done to improve quality of life. However, many elders with vision loss are surprised to learn that they can continue many of the activities they enjoyed before.
