Small Business Saturday is a day for community to show its support by celebrating small business. Surveys consistently show that we trust local and family-owned businesses more than any other kind, not only because of greater personal relationships and trust, but they offer better quality, transparency, and fewer middlemen. We have no agenda. We have no ulterior motives. We are not a multibillion dollar corporation who are beholden to shareholders. Moreover, our decision to be sole practitioners keeps us from cronyism. For example, even after supposed "reforms," a study from last month's Public Health Nutrition titled "The corporate capture of the nutrition profession in the USA: the case of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND)," found that AND, the organization that registers dietitians, still accepted millions of dollars from junk food, pharmaceutical, and agribusiness companies, had policies to provide favors in return, and invested in ultra-processed food company stocks. Our mission is simple: keep family, friends and coworkers optimally healthy. You are family. Big business can never touch this. To celebrate, we have several perks for any order you put on hold, pick up, or have shipped today. We are open from 9AM-4PM. And if you feel so inclined, give us a positive Google Review here. HUGE 20% OFF SALE FOR DECEMBER & NOVEMBER (see website for details)

HEART HEALTH ACTION PLAN There is so much more to assessing heart health than a lipid panel. We completely revamped our self-help action plan incorporating the best cardiac screening markers, diet, supplement and lifestyle measures, and if need be, the safest medications to discuss with your doctor. If you, loved ones, friends, or coworkers have been prescribed medication but would rather look at the whole picture, our Heart Health Action Plan is free today in honor of Small Business Saturday at the link below. Of course, individual appointments are always recommended.

37 Years And Still Going Strong

We have seen the wellness industry grow from a niche market to a trillion dollar Goliath. Like with the pharmaceutical and food industries, when so much money is at stake, the lines between doing what is best for the consumer in the wellness industry have become blurred. We will always fight for what's best for you. We relish the fact that we have taken this journey with you, your families and friends. We believe in the future of wellness, but because it has become so complex, it is our duty to not only guide you, but make sure the wellness gatekeepers you cross paths with are transparent, fair, and accountable. Our ideals have never been as apropos as they are now.

DID YOU KNOW a recent survey found that 75% of Americans believe their health and wellness products should be tax-free? Healthy groceries and dietary supplements were at the top of the wish list. The respondents said that if they treat their health as an “investment” that will gain value over time, there should be a tax benefit much like if you were putting money into a retirement account. We could not agree more. At the very least, all health and wellness products should be covered for those with Health Savings Accounts (HSA). Please contact your congressmen and congresswomen to voice your opinion.

Infection Support

Prevention ur During Infection COVID-19 is endemic, meaning it is here to stay. Moreover, we are exposed to many other endemic viruses including influenza (flu), respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), norovirus (stomach flu), adenovirus (common cold), monkeypox, and four other coronaviruses (common cold), among others. Support your immune system year-round with our Free Prevent and Fight Viruses 2.0 Protocol here. Long COVID 25 to 40% of COVID patients develop Post-Acute Sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 infection (PASC) or "Long COVID". If you, a family member, friend, coworker, or neighbor are suffering from PASC, schedule an appointment with Steve or purchase our self-help Post-Acute Sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 Action Plan 3.0 (password: discount2018).

2023 Health & Wellness Trends

Steve: Here is what may be popular, or even more popular than usual, in 2023. Yaupon A holly bush found in the southeastern United States and claimed to be North America’s only known native caffeinated plant, Yaupon has a mild, earthy flavor and can be brewed it into herbal tea or used in other functional beverages. It is related to the beverage you know well...Yerba Mate. Upcycling By upcycling by-products such as oat, soy and almond pulp, brands are creating new products for the modern baker, such as alternative flours and baking mixes. Pet Supplements Pet owners are much more aware that food usually will not cut it for their pets. Targeted, high quality pet supplements are a necessity to keep their pets happy, and depending upon the supplement, even more obedient :) Produce Pasta Expect a slew of plant-based pasta alternatives with ingredients such as spaghetti squash, hearts of palm, and green bananas. Dates "Nature’s candy" are having a major renaissance as a sweetener, not only for at-home bakers, but also in the form of pastes and syrups. Bone and Joint Health Supplements Collagen, glucosamine and chondroitin, among others will continue to emerge as we stray father away from harmful pain management therapies. Poultry Poultry will continue to become more pasture-raised, organic, and restorative than ever before. Retro Products Retro products are being reinvented with consideration for the wellness-conscious customer, creating the ultimate mash-up of throwback indulgences with better ingredients and special diets in mind. Kelp As kelp and other forms of seaweed are starting to make their mark worldwide to help sustain the food supply, you will see kelp in all kinds of foods from pasta to sauces. Avocado Oil Will finally begin to replace more inflammatory vegetable oils in snacks, mayonnaise, and ready-to-eat meals. Immune and Sleep Supplements With ever-present pathogens, year-round immune support is a must. And with more demands on our daily lives, sleep is at a premium. But many are eschewing sleep medication because of their deleterious side effects. Sleep supplements fill the gaps.
