Schedule Change When Babies Arrive
Pete and his wife, Dina, are expecting their twins will arrive sometime this month. Pete is planning to take a few days off once they arrive. If you are scheduled for an appointment that needs to be rescheduled, Shawna will call you as soon as we know more. If you plan on swinging by the office for a walk-in adjustment, please be aware you may wish to call in and make sure we are open. We will update the voicemail and website.
Thanks for your patience at this exciting time.
Standard Process Purification Program
We have had great success with our 21-day purification program. About 30 of you joined us in January to do a group program and people lost weight, slept better, broke caffeine habits, lowered cholesterol levels, and improved blood pressure - to name only a few!
I really like this program because you are eating real, whole foods throughout and take specific supllements. You will find it easy to continue using many of the good habits you develop over the 21 days.
Keep in mind we can order the SP Purification supplements anytime for you and have them in 1-2 days at the office, or shipped directly to your house. The cost is $209.
We wanted to give you an early heads up that we will host another group class in early January 2016. We will go over all the details of the program on one TBD evening at the office and explain how it helps your body. Plan on making it a healthy habit to start your 2016!
