On Saturday, August 5, Relax the Back will be hosting an in-store health fair from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The health fair is designed for people to meet professionals in all areas of spinal health. These areas include chiropractic circulation, ergonomic massage and fitness experts. There will be demonstrations all day that include pillow fittings, full body massage, work station assessments, car seat fittings and natural back traction.
The Upstate is blessed to have a variety of businesses and practitioners that are dedicated to helping prevent cancer as well as working to improve the quality of life of cancer victims. In our own backyard, Dr. Connie Casebolt of Wellness by Design, in Greenville, incorporates into her integrative medicine practice modalities that improve quality of life and support the immune system. These include saunas, various supplements and some specialty IV’s, notably Vitamin C and ozone. And, as you will note in almost all discussions of cancer prevention, making dietary changes—getting rid of all inflammatory foods—is essential.
Before buying, be informed and read labels. The word ‘natural’ can be misleading so it’s important to know what to avoid. Steer clear of anything that contains fragrance, sulfates, gluten, phthalates, triclosan, parabens and musk. Silver Wing Essentials cosmetics is one line of skin care products that offers a vegan, cruelty-free alternative.
The search for high-quality, safe cosmetics can be difficult and exhausting. Even products labeled “natural” can contain ingredients with known skin irritants, hormone disruptors or carcinogens. All of Silver Wing Essentials products are safe, eco-friendly, cruelty free, honestly labeled, and contain between 75- 90% organic ingredients; no fragrance, sunscreen or toxic ingredients.
