A HEALTHIER YOU...HOW TO SLOW THE AGING PROCESS.

Aging is defined as a progressive degeneration of cellular structure. Our current scientific methods do not allow us to stop this process, but it is understood that certain physiologic and environmental stimuli are responsible for advanced aging. Your body is actually designed to last many more years than you might think, and it can with knowledge and practice according to natural law.

ARE WE KILLING OUR CHILDREN?

You are what you eat. The "super-size" portions and high sugar consumption of the American diet have super-sized our children and put them at risk for a life time of disease.

Early Detection For Breast Cancer

There are many reasons that breast cancers and diseases go undetected before they are advanced or it's too late. We have an exaggerated faith in mammograms; we don't do regular self examination palpation; we under estimate our risk factors; we have small breasts or cosmetic surgeries that keep us from getting mammograms; we think we are too young to get breast cancer; we are unaware of other screening methods.
