Since the heat is such a bummer, we want to offer you 20% off supplements for the month of July! The biggest gift that I could give to you is ideas on how to stay super hydrated during these months. The amount of water that I have found that we all need to stay hydrated is our body weight in ounces (winter months would be half that amount).

Fathers, this month is to honor YOU. We here at the Center for Natural Healing would like to extend to you a discount on either a first time office visit to establish yourself at our center or a follow up visit.
