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.

    • Hermela Teferra retired from teaching in the year 2011. She always enjoyed cooking. Since now she has time to pursue her interest, she enrolled in a plant-based cooking course. It took 4 months to complete the course and earn a certificate. This is really one of the most useful classes that she has taken over the years.  She uses the technique that she has learned practically every day. She will show us how to cook without oil. A donation for the chef would be appreciated to cover the cost of the food. “Forks over Knives” began with a movie in 2011 that shows us how a low fat, whole food plant-based diet can avoid or reverses chronic disease.  Check out www.forksoverknives.com

The key to all of this is to understand there are many different kinds of carbohydrates.  Some should be consumed in relatively large amounts for good health, and some should be minimized or avoided altogether.  Come learn all you need to know about carbs to make them your friend for life.
