Thursday, November 7th, 2013

Our regular patients and customers have probably noticed a charge in the air at NHC. We have finally jumped the digital train and transitioned from paper to electronic records.

Smoothie Specials

Thursday, September 26th, 2013

We love our morning protein shakes but can get stuck in a pattern of making the same combination over and over. When in a hurry, we make them for lunches or a snacks. It is a great source of fuel for the kids before a swim meet or practice too.

So we have decided to start posting our Natural Health Center staff favorites and invite you to share your favorite recipes too! We will publish any and all on our Facebook Page and Blog.

Not long after, we all huddled together in the kitchen as my hot breakfast cooked, shaking our fists and paws …Continue Reading

Tis the Season for Giving

Friday, December 7th, 2012

by Medea Beauvais, our Frown Turner Upside-Downer

One definition of giving is to freely transfer …Continue Reading
