Creating Vibrant Health: Incorporating Superfoods and Internal Cleansing into Your Wellness Program
9 May, Friday 6 - 8pm

Our bodies were not designed for life in the modern industrial age. The average human in the United States is exposed to a plenitude of toxic chemicals every day. Also, our soils (and therefore our foods) are so depleted that many in this country are actually malnourished in minerals and vitamins. Any quality health program will thus have two crucial aspects: supporting our bodies in detoxification efforts and upgrading our nutritional intake. Come hear HealthForce Nutritionals representative Doug Walsh present options that can help you create a radical shift in your physical health.
