I am thrilled to be launching this website and blog as a place to talk about the many dimensions of holistic living that I believe are instrumental to good health and vibrant longevity.
The name I've chosen, Wellness for Life, refers to the fullness of life that I encourage for every person, and it represents the way I choose to live my own life. By luxury, I don't mean cost or extravagance, but rather a sense of deep care that can be part of any lifestyle. It's honing in on the moments that make life better, for everyone. It is the special item that elevates a simple act, like the best bar of soap to use or using a glass water bottle instead of plastic or metal. It is the time taken to be with your self and to be in nature. It is the awareness of these experiences we choose to enhance life, which create both pleasure and gratitude. It is an insider's guide to the world of health and beauty, with its premium on living well and its many outlets for doing so.
This website is a portal to the wealth of valuable information that I have encountered in my professional practice and personal life. I feel fortunate to share it all with you, in creating a place to celebrate experiences that enrich, heal, and provide a direct link to many of the best people, products, places and things that I have discovered and use in my everyday life...
