About Wellness Plus

Our mission is to empower individuals to take control of their health, with emphasis on prevention, by providing up-to-date information and support – from whole food nutrition to holistic healings.

We believe in whole food. As Hippocrates stated, “food should be your medicine and the medicine should be food, and to be a medicine, first, it has to do no harm.”

Wellness Plus is 100% supported by member’s dues and by their purchases in our “Store of Mother Earth.” We have not, do not and will not accept any donations from drug or food manufacturers even though we operate on a not-for-profit basis. Therefore, you can trust the information we provide because we are a totally independent organization.

For individuals and families, we provide weekly classes, seminars, workshops and cooking demonstrations. We also provide various holistic healings (see member’s benefit list) at discount prices. We have personal and group training programs in our center, as well as house call services. We also carry unusual and hard to find natural foods and supplies in our store.

For natural healing practitioners, we have referral services, free corporate health fair booths to promote your business, treatment room rent starting at $200/month for one day per week, matching funds for advertising and more. Ask about our “Partner in Health” program.

    • This is part one of two workshops that examine the risks and benefits of medications like antidepressants,

      anxiety medications and other psychoactive drugs.  For many years we have been told that those drugs can “correct” chemical imbalances in the brain responsible for depression, psychosis, ADHD etc.  Nevertheless, research shows that there is no credible connection between Serotonin and depression.  We will look at better approaches at the end of the workshop.  Please bring your questions.

      Brigitte, a native of Germany, has graduated from Wellness Forum Health with a Health and Nutrition Educator Diploma.  She also has certificates from eCornell where she has completed T. Colin Campbell’s Nutrition program as well as from Dr. McDougall’s Starch Solution Program.  She has been working with people to resolve health issues since 2013.

      Pertinent to today’s talk, Brigitte has worked full time as a Market Research Consultant for the pharmaceutical Industry for 26 years and has been involved in many studies looking at the actual efficacy, side effects and data regarding psychoactive drugs, for depression, anxiety, psychoses and ADHD. This expertise has been particularly helpful in understanding the real impact medications can have compared to what the downsides are.  Brigitte also has studied with Dr. Peter Breggin, a psychiatrist who has dedicated his entire professional life (more than 50 years) to debunking the myths surrounding anti-depressants and developing methods of helping his clients without ever starting them on those drug.

Green tea compounds block key enzyme that allows coronavirus to replicate

A study published in the journal Frontiers in Plant Science shows that chemical compounds in green tea and other plant-based foods can block the activity of a key enzyme in the replication of SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19.


Wondrous Benefits of Green Tea

Unlike most antiviral drugs, green tea appears to work by boosting the immune system to combat diseases such as genital warts (caused by HPV) and the flu (caused by the influenza virus).
