We have no plans on closing and will continue to serve your wellness needs through this public health issue.
All we ask is that you continue to be vigilant utilizing the wellness knowledge we gave you to stay as healthy as possible. Please tell your loved ones because one thing that is not being discussed enough by the media and our leadership is the ownership we must take for our own health, and that starts with food and nutrients.
Please take this time to cherish your family if you are together. Once you get over the shock that you may be together for a while, use this unique time in history to reconnect. If you live alone, know that there are many ways to virtually be with family and friends. After we have traversed these hardships, it may come to pass that despite our past differences, family, friends, acquaintances, and the population as a whole may become more closely aligned.
