The online Wellness Center includes tips and advice in the following areas:
-- Diet & Nutrition ?
?- Small Step:? Don't pass the salt Did you know that too much sodium can raise your blood pressure and contribute to developing or worsening hypertension, the leading risk factor for cardiovascular disease?
?- Small Step: Get moving: The beauty of physical activity is that little bits add up to big benefits. Try adding activity into each day little by little. Unsure where to start? Keep it simple. For instance, carry your groceries into the house one bag at a time.
-- Emotional Wellbeing
?- Small Step: Laugh away stress: Laughter is a great stress reliever, but the benefits don't end there. Laughter can also strengthen the immune system, lessen food cravings and help you heal more quickly.
-- Beauty and Anti-Aging

-- Alternative Medicine
