WHO’S BEHIND IT
I Love my pillow because it gives me different hairstyle’s every day 🙂
Being a practitioner has never just been a job. It is a genuine passion and interest which involves understanding the whole philosophy of life, and living life. What is life without living it anyhow?! Society has imploded us with genetically modified food, prescribed drugs and unnecessary surgeries, which have been available to us in times we thought we had ‘no other choice.’
As a consequence, many of us have experienced suffering unexpected side effects, which has prevented us living a life we should. Therefore, it brought us to question, what can we do about it? We can raise awareness, educate and know that ‘WE DO ‘ have safer choices available to us, one that respects each other and the life we live. This is what we stand for and this is where it began.
“May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears.”
– Nelson Mandela
