Hi, I am a 55-year-old Traditional Naturopath & Nutritionist who is passionate about health. After all, without health what do we have? We all have one life to live and why not live that life to the fullest. We are all going to age and we are all going to die. I am concerned with how we live and how we age. Existing is not an option for me and it should not be for you. I want to thrive. I want to feel vibrant and full of energy every day. There is no reason why we should be limited in the things we do because of our age, if we care for our precious health. When we are plagued by illness or even annoyed my minor symptoms of dis-ease we are not thriving. I know that our bodies can heal themselves. Sometimes they just need a little help from nature.
