Physical

Physical wellness consists of recognizing the need for physical activity, healthy foods, and sleep, as well as preventing illness and managing chronic health conditions.

Our goal is to curate the resources to help you embrace a lifestyle of wellness, where physical activity, nutritious eating, and self-care aren’t just habits, but a celebration of life!

Workshops & Breakout Speakers –

Skincare: Vanity or Healthcare?

Mahala Meyer – Skin Magnifique

Your skin is the largest organ of the body and is often neglected due to lack of understanding of its importance and how to care for it.

Is it vain to take care of your skin? Or is it just another facet of healthcare that we can use to help us look, and more importantly feel better for decades to come? 

Manhood: Returning the GRRR back to the Morning Salute

Jeremy Maxwell, DC – Wellness Way

Guys, just because you get older does not mean that your hormones decrease and your sex drive decreases.  Hormone replacement should not be your first resort.  Especially when you are in your 20’s, 30’s, 40′ and even older.  

There is a better and more natural way back to regaining your MANHOOD.

Endometriosis: The Wellness Way Approach

Jeremy Maxwell, DC – Wellness Way

Have you been told that you can’t get rid of endometriosis or that there is no cure?  Maybe you just need to hear a different perspective about saving all your female parts. It’s time to stop the mutilation.

Could Your Digestion Be The Reason For Your Exhaustion?

Karri Ball – Karri Ball Nutritional Therapy

We will dig into how the process works, the NINE organs involved in the digestive process, what can go wrong, and some tips to help improve your digestion!

Health Restoration For Kids: The Chiropractic Perspective

Dr. Dhruval Patel, D.C. – Wellness Way – Columbia

Instead of waiting for problems and conditions to arise and reacting, what would it look like if you began to implement proactive things to build and restore your child’s health through spinal adjustments, proper nutrition and supplementation when needed? Why has this become such a foreign concept? Clearly more drugs and more vaccines are providing solutions to health restoration.
