“Ten Reasons Why We All Should Do a Detox & Cleanse” - Andrew Baechler, Eniva Health (Josephine)

Perhaps you're thinking "I just don't feel like myself lately." A periodic Detox & Cleanse is an ideal way to help refresh and reboot your bodily systems. Whether you're looking to establish new, healthy patterns or just want a way to recondition your body, the Eniva Health Detox & Cleanse is the perfect answer. It’s only seven days, does not require fasting or dieting, and addresses the entire body, not just the colon. It’s super easy to do, tastes good, and is gentle on your system.

“Enhancing Your Physical and Emotional Wellbeing Using the Healing Power of Radionics” - Michele Schramm, Optimal Wellness Solutions (Lake of the Isle)

Do you feel fatigued, sick or have other symptoms that linger despite your best efforts? Have you spent countless hours and thousands-of-dollars on expensive testing but are still unable to determine the root cause(s) of your symptoms or discern beneficial treatment options? Radionics via the AO Digital Body Analyzer may provide the answer.

Every cell and organ in the body has its own distinct vibrational frequency. When the frequencies are disrupted, whether by injury, diet, stress or emotion, it can bring about a disruption/weakness of that organ’s biological function. Learn how the Digital Body Analyzer resets the body’s frequencies in order to restore optimal health and/or prevent disease from manifesting. Over time, with repeated sessions of frequency optimization, disruptive frequencies can be replaced with healthy, vibrant frequencies, thus improving the body’s performance, reducing the body’s symptomatic toxic burden and greatly enhancing your physical, emotional and personal wellbeing.

“What Your Body Type Says About Your Health in Mind, Body and Spirit” - Michelle Kitsmiller, Awakened Living (Lake of the Isle)

All disease and imbalance are rooted in emotional issues. When disease or imbalance shows up in your body, there is a reason: it’s trying to get your attention. Are you listening? In Chinese medicine there are six archetypes that we can categorize by body type and personality. Within each of these there are specific tendencies that can get out of balance and create disease. In this workshop you will have an opportunity to find out your archetype, which disease patterns are more likely to show up in each one, and the reasons behind them.

Connie Bjerk, Awakened Living

“The Art of Doing Nothing—and Why It Matters” - Connie Bjerk, Awakened Living (Josephine)

When was the last time you remember doing nothing? How did it feel? Was there any guilt attached to your experience? Why do we feel that taking time for ourselves is the last thing we should be doing?

Discover why the art of being able to “do nothing” is vital to our health and wellbeing. We are all intimately familiar with our daily “to do” lists. We may even have them at home as well as work. While crossing things off our lists feels good, more items are usually added before the original list is completed! Research shows that we do, indeed, need downtime to reset and regulate our minds, bodies and spirits. Join us as we explore ways to incorporate life's guilty pleasures into our daily lives, while introducing you to new ones to increase your health and wellbeing.
