Principals

Our services offered are grounded in the following principles:

  3. Promotion of whole, locally grown and organic foods; sustainable farming practices; and the necessity of living in a non-toxic environment;
  4. Understanding that prevention and self-responsibility are fundamental to any successful health care program;
