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.

Jane, a survivor of Chinese labor camps during the cultural revolution of the 1960’s, pulled herself from death through “whole foods” when doctors had given up on her and said her condition was terminal. Come listen to her amazing story and learn how you too can take control of your own health without expensive and toxic drugs.

  • Monday, October 25 at 6:30 “The Power of Being Your Own Doctor”

Western medicine has developed many life-saving products in the form of drugs and procedures.  There are many well-meaning doctors who will use their training and background to help you gain access to these products, and their input is important and valuable, but should not be your only source of information.  In this session, you will learn how to process input from all sources with a healthy dose of skepticism, but not cynicism.  You will also learn how to choose information sources that are based on good science, and how you should get input from a variety of reliable sources.  Presented by Dr. Chuck Powley
