HEALTH IS MORE THAN THE ABSENCE OF ILLNESS
No one body is the same as the next, so no two ways of health will be the same either. Yet, much like the universal need for sleep, all recommendations for lasting health, have one thing in common- reduce inflammation. Inflammation is the #1 cause of mental, emotional and physical disease in the body.
Learn how to reduce inflammation in the body and experience what it's like to be well!

Great Day Academics
To Our Kids!
Early exposure to a vast variety of foods and vegetables can empower kids to make each trip to the grocery store an opportunity to pick foods that strengthen their mind and body.
We teach body intelligence so they make the connection between what they are feeling inside as it relates to the food on their plate.
Real foods heal. Teaching children how to read food labels encourages them to ask questions about the ingredients and vitamins in their food.
ADHD, mood swings and other behavioral concerns in our children are linked to malnourished bodies. With processed foods and chemical additives in our food supply, the American diet has given our youngsters a title of being "overfed, yet undernourished".
In the last 30 years, doctors have seen the number of pre-diabetic, child patients jump from zero to now 1 in every 4 children.
KIDS WHO EAT CLEAN MEALS
LET THEIR BODIES HEAL
THE SCIENCE OF
As we face new challenges with disease, U.S. medical experts are looking at prevention by means of preventative nutrition.
Science now proves that daily maintenance in the form of food and nutrition not only builds your immune system, it can help prevent naturally occurring illnesses including back pain, heart disease and numerous others.
YOUR DAILY CONSUMPTION HAS A DIRECT IMPACT ON HOW YOU
LOOK, FEEL AND FUNCTION
Functional medicine is the leading contender when it comes to prevention and cures for mental and physical disease.
"People with chronic conditions (allergic, digestive, hormonal, metabolic and neurological problems) – which most Americans suffer from, are finding solutions in the field of Functional Medicine", says William Cole D.C.. "Functional Medicine views us all as being different; genetically and biochemically unique."
This personalized health care treats the individual, instead of the disease and supports the normal healing mechanisms of the body.
I FINALLY MADE A HOBBY OF LISTENING TO MY BODY
How This Tool Helped Me
I've had environmental allergies most of my life, but it wasn't until I did the research and changed my eating habits, that my outdoor allergies and chronic back pain completely disappeared. I learned that the sugars and foods I consumed caused my body to overwork. The result, chronic inflammation. This prevented my body's ability to fight off environmental triggers and caused inflamed muscle tissue. Now I choose real foods that heal and I feel better with every meal!
This too, is my wish for you!
