ChristCare Small Group, Health & Nutrition meet today, at 2:30 in Diane Robertson’s home. The intent is to share nutritional information and bring awareness about harmful chemicals in the environment and food. Most information is collected from research articles and information from functional and naturopathic physicians. This is alternative information for those people who prefer to improve their immune system and rely less on pharmaceuticals. It’s also a safe place for people to share their health experiences and frustrations.
