1. There is still much bad press going on in the news about supplements. The FDA, the news media and even some doctors are claiming vitamin and herbal supplements to be deadly dangerous. While we agree that you need to have some education on the proper use of supplements, the latest study showed that in the year 2013 (the year that was studied), the US Poison Data System found no deaths from the use of herbs or supplements. Zero. None. I honestly wish the FDA, the news media and some physicians would put the same scrutiny they use against supplements towards their own medications. Medications are often needed, no question, but they are much more powerful and potentially dangerous, yet seem to be excluded from the same level of scrutiny aimed at supplements.

2. It should be only a few more weeks until we have our massage therapist working in the office. For a limited time she has agreed to perform massages for half price in order to introduce herself to our clients.
3. Is there anything else you would like to see added to our clinic. Is anyone out there interested in Reiki? Would you like to see us carry essential oils? Would anyone be interested in essential oils? If you want it at our office, we need to know, so don’t be shy…
Hope this helps,
