Last week, Dr. Zair and I headed up to Wisconsin. One of our main nutrition suppliers, Standard Process, invited us to tour their headquarters and farm. This first photo was taken inside the factory where they are funneling buckwheat, just harvested that morning to prepare for processing. Buckwheat is found in most of their supplements. If you are taking any SP products, just look at the label. It is a key ingredient for many of their supplements including Drenamin and Trace Minerals B12. We were then taken on an open bed truck through their organic farm and saw incredible green crops if alfalfa, Spanish Black Radish, Kale, Brussel Sprouts.. all the key phytochemical ingredients for immune support, breast cancer prevention, detox and many other functions.
The whole experience opened our eyes to their high ethical standards (they respect the environment through organic farming and recycling), clean (I mean clean) facilities and sophisticated operations. Meeting the staff and executives made us realize how much they care about their quality of products that make a profound impact on our patient's biochemistry.
We are introducing the Purification Program to our practice. I went through this cleanse with great results. Dr. Zair and I had a two day seminar there and developed a stronger understanding of whole food nutrition. More on this soon. If you are not receiving our newsletter, please contact our office and we will add you to the list. (There's a valuable coupon on the Purification Program).
PS: The wonderful weekend ended with an old fashioned country breakfast that included my favorite food. I indulged in German Potato Pancakes with fresh applesauce at Millie's. We then went to a famous Apple farm (the Elegant Farmer) known for their apple pie baked in a brown bag. Yummm. Time for a detox now.

Excited new members and guests joined us tonight as we launched the kick off for their new journey to wellness! Jackie, wellness coach and personal trainer, gave a web tour explaining all the features and functions of mycreatingwellnessspace.com. Did you know you can search your favorite sport or activity and the website will calculate how many calories "you" burn in any given time period? This info, of course, is based on your wellness assessment and reflected in your own portal to the site. You can also select a recipe and download the grocery shopping list with one click!
We talked about the state of healthcare today, the confusion and conflicting messages in the media. One great thing about our Club is that we educate and empower you to take control of your life, not tell you what to do, what to eat and how to count points. Success in achieving true wellness comes from a paradigm shift (how we think).
Education is power and strength comes in numbers. Our next meeting is September 21st. Call our office if you would like to sit in as a guest or if you have some questions. We would be glad to see you! (623) LP CHIRO.
If you've been dissatisfied with your health..what are you waiting for?
