COMING HOLIDAY SEASON 2020!
A Must-Have for Healthy Families
The wellness industry is no longer a fringe movement. Globally, the industry is worth several trillion dollars, with the alternative medicine segment alone worth over $360 billion. This powerful industry makes it difficult for well intended families to sift through the marketing claims to find the products and activities that are best for each unique family.
Leading natural products researcher Dr. Jessie Hawkins has been teaching families how to sort through the compelling claims to separate fact from fiction since 2005. Dr. Hawkins has taught tens of thousands of families around the globe how to make healthy decisions for their own homes and how to invest their wellness budget effectively–reducing both overhead costs and total sick days.
The release of the Science of Holistic Health with Dr Hawkins makes this much-loved resource available once again with modern updates and the latest cutting edge science.
